Common Sense, part 2

Hello America,

I usually don't post daily and you all know that....... But thanks to Obamabank screwing my aid, this is what happens when you are out of work.

I want to talk to you about common sense in regard to the deficit, the need to stop saying that this is the next great depression.

First and foremost, I want to give a Palin shoutout, just playing, but to my parents, John and Lucy Mims who have been married for thirty seven years today. I fuss a lot about my family, b/c I am passionate (PC for loudmouth), I am young, but I got heart and it takes time to learn how things work versus how they should work. But I learned from them the art of compromise. I learned from them the power of teamwork and the power to utilize common sense to turn something ordinary into something special.

I am not going to do bars today. Don't feel like it, have a stack of work to do. Been out campaigning early this morning.. Not with stickers, and signs, but in my actions. A lot of people know me around here, this is my hood. This is my street, this is my town. And people have seen me go through a lot. When I came home nobody knew what to expect......... Some thought I came home b/c I failed and I don't take the time to explain the loss of my financial aid to people. Some thought I came home b/c I couldn't hack it or I wanted to, neither of which is the case.

But I figured that I am here now, and there is no need to remain so removed from these people. I went through a lot in life early, so my ability to disconnect is so refined that it serves a strength in my professional life, but a real detriment in my personal life. It is like a switch. And most of the time, I prefer to leave that switch off. It keeps me from feeling too much, as I am a very passionate person. If I am mad, I am raging. If I am sad, then I am sobbing. If I see someone in an embarrassing situation, it hurts me....

So my remedy to that over the years, has been to leave the switch off. But it prevents you from connecting to people. Now that I have been back, I am trying to leave the switch on, a little longer each day. I get up with my family, help my sister get ready for work, help my nephews get ready for their day, take my dad where he needs to go, not b/c I have to, but to just get a mere glimpse of all the things you have to do every day, America, as parents, as parents who have parents in the house with issues, as spouses, as teachers, and working individuals......

All I can say after two weeks, YOUR JOB IS HARD, AMERICA! It is, I don't even mean that in a disrespectful manner, I mean it earnestly. It saddens me that I can't relieve the burden for each and every one of you and make your load lighter, but I am trying in my own way. I am trying to do what I need to do so that there is one less thing you have to worry about.

Now, I know that Rep. Frank is not going to file a suit to request obama's birth certificate, but it doesn't absolve the need for it. Common sense says hey, tiffani, he's already in, let it be. But as Mr. Holder, our dear AG says, we must follow the law........

Now it is truly amazing to me, how the obama administration can use that line to justify vilifying as the Libya is embracing terrorists coming home like MLK being released from jail, justify attacking our CIA like that, but upon requests for him to investigate his boss on a possible breach of the law, he remains as quiet as a church mouse. Common Sense are the values that we have in common as we continue to isolate ourselves through social networks, and charter schools and gated communities, we lose each and every day the social mechanisms that were in place to ensure we had common sense which nothing more than a manifestations of the values that were common to all of us in this culture.

It used to be a time where we did our own yards out of pride b/c we valued doing things for ourselves. And that is the world from which I come, that is the world which had this country and keeps this country straight.

This is football season, yes...... In the league, every quarterback is going above and beyond, not b/c of his job, but b/c he has to earn the respect of those he will lead. He must go above and beyond before he can ask anyone to do the same. They must see it him first. And the same holds true for Presidents.

Don't think b/c I fuss about steele, this is about him. Please, as a black republican, his political heart has been broken way before I could run my mouth......

Don't think b/c I fuss about this birther issue and will not let go of it, it is b/c of malicious intent against Obama. He is not my husband, my brother, my daddy, my God. His purpose in my life is just as inconsequential as my purpose in his life.

But the system remains in place, b/c the rule of law is paramount over everything and everyone, and that includes the wishes of families who got a little too much money and time on their hands: the Kennedys and the Bushes. And b/c of the social indulgences of a few, we all must suffer.

Common Sense would tell you that if we are in a budget deficit now, that health care reform and the public opting will only increase it. Tort reform, investing in doctors through paying 75% of medical school costs in urban and rural areas with a commitment of 5 years worth of service in those communities, stuff like that can save money. Taking the money we spend to recruit foreign doctors and the costs of visas and stuff to keep them over and beginning focusing on the homegrown talent, we got here in our children and young people. Stuff like that saves money.

But Obama ain't about common sense, b/c who he represents ain't common to the American people. If Obama wanted to really pay for the uninsured, he would use some of that political fortitude, he pops off at the mouth so much about and advocate medicinal marijuana or at least a change of the controlled substance act. Not b/c of the "chronic" but the revenue that can potentially come from that, can pay for all American citizens to be insured. Don't get it twisted, America, I don't go into details all the time, but the anger I have towards this administration in specific regard to how it treats American citizens is real and directed. Not some this dude just gets on my nerves, he does, admittedly, but it is deeper than that.

Obama needs the public option, b/c he was not raised in American culture and politics. He naively believes that if he can say I got all Americans insured that that will ensure a second term for him. It is not his fault for this wishful thinking, b/c he was given something, he didn't earn. Do you really think the tactics that were used in his campaign, were not thought of by other black candidates on both sides.... The difference is that the other candidates realized the value of EARNING respect and trust of his or her constituents so when tough times like these came, they could rely on the trust of the people to let him or her lead the people where they needed to go.

But this didn't happen this time, this election was won on race. You never took the time, America, to ask anything of this dude. You all were just satisfied, that the "brother" to it to the white man and McCain didn't help the situation neither. You allowed yourself to let this man tell you whatever you wanted to hear instead of demanding real and viable policies from him so we wouldn't end up where we are today.

Mad, angry and pissed off that we didn't get everything that we were promised. When we gave someone a right to lead that didn't earn it. The system cannot stand under that, and it saddens me that I am going to have to be the "evil" one that will have work on my own time, b/c I don't believe in wasting tax payer dollars or time for something the majority of the people that I represent don't agree with to remove this administration.

In 1988, Dallas Carter won the state football championship. We were the first black school in Texas to do so. But b/c of issues outside of football, it was taken away and when you look in the history book, you just see a star and a simple reference to what happened. But to the state champions, I forgot the other school at this moment, they will tell you, no WE ARE NOT, THE BATTLE WAS ON THE FIELD AND DESPITE THE WISHES OF THE UIL IN TEXAS TO NEVER HAVE A BLACK SCHOOL LIKE CARTER BE CHAMPIONS, THEY EARNED IT............ they won fair and square on the field, and nothing and nobody can take that away.....

I don't expect anyone to forget the legacy that is barack obama. I don't expect anyone to forget the feelings they had the night that he won. I would be lying if I said I watched the speech. I would be lying if I felt this connection to black people that night, maybe I did but was too overcome with the sadness in that America lost b/c America let someone in who didn't earn it. Not his fault, but he is not qualified to be President according to the rules that make our country. And we start making exceptions, the rules become a moot point.

As Eric Holder as it is these same assertions that serve as his validation for the CIA inquiry. You can't follow the rules when you want to. You can, but usually those who subscribe to that train of thought are criminals and they take the punishments they receive in stride b/c that is the nature of crime. But this is politics, this is rule of law and it must be followed.

I do understand the ramifications of what I am saying. If the President is negated, then his entire administration is negated and with that are jobs, policies, legislation, a lot. BUT NONE OF THAT MATTERS. And the problems that come from arrogant, racial choices by Senator Kennedy, By George W. Bush(think about why he has been so quiet since he came out) this arrogant, racial choices made these men of power affect us all and it sucks.

I don't want to be on paper as the black who took out the black President, not literally of course. But if that has to be so be it. That is not fair to my life, that is not fair to obama by putting him in somewhere, he is not qualified to be. But it must be rectified, it will be rectified.........

Common Sense should have told Senator Kennedy and George Bush to not think they are so big, they can dictate Presidents, but they did and we must go from here.

Obama must be subject to the rules and regulations like everyone else. He must be able to earn the respect of all his citizens so when he comes to issues like health care, he can be taken seriously. He will never be able to do that b/c just a year ago, him and John Lewis were calling every white and black person that didn't support him part of the Klan or some other racial epithet. You can't come back from that, to listen to me, the people supported me.

I know right now, America, you are hurting. I know........... I see it everyday, in your eyes when you look at the bill at the grocery store, knowing you ain't got enough in your basket, but it's all that you can afford. I know when you look at your medications knowing you should be taking all of it, but you gotta keep the lights on..........

I know, if only you could see the tears that are falling down my face as I type these words....... I know.

But what has to be done, has to be done, to ensure that the commonality in this country that keeps us able to function as a nation is continued and manifested on our largest stage: our President.

It's not about me being a hardass, I don't relish that role. You think I don't want to be able to kick loose, and just be cool...........

But that ain't me, no more than being a hardass is you.......

We all have to play our parts.

I read Amie Parnes piece on obama's pet peeves and one of them was about being unprepared which is hilarious when I hear his real surprise on how things are turning out. On how, he really didn't anticipate the real anger and distrust he instilled himself in half of his citenzry when the low tactics he used to get him in b/c he couldn't trust just running on the issues. The other was about not liking drama, how much more drama can this be......

My point is that he cheated, and the fact that he is black does not absolve that. The fact that rich, powerful, liberal and racist men like Bush and Kennedy in this regard helped him. denied others their chance like Micheal Steele to indulge this dream doesn't absolve that. The fact that he brought health care to the forefront doesn't absolve that. The fact that now more people than ever know what the inkwell meant to black society doesn't absolve that. The fact that he has been in six months and his staff and their families living on that good federal employee insurance doesn't absolve that. The fact that you all just let him go on and accept something that he is not qualified for right now doesn't absolve that.

Do you realize right now, America, right now, every piece of legislation that he has signed is not binding, every decision including putting holder in to investigate people is not binding. And just b/c Bush won't say anything does not absolve the fact that he is still President.......... You know that don't you. I am not concerned about obama having his picture on everything, I am not concerned about the Senate and House going like nothing happened....

B/c it did, a person cheated and is running a country that he shouldn't.... Doesn't matter that he didn't use a traditional coup............ doesn't matter that he is black.......

it doesn't...........

what matters is that he cheated, regardless of what or who he did it for............

and when in America, have our common values degraded to the point, where rules don't even matter anymore.......

You can spin it, this ain't the great depression. Most of the people in this nation, where in soup kitchens in 1937, not at home with some bootleg cable watching the TO show. You can talk about how you in and how destructive it would be to be replaced right now all you want, but it don't change the fact that this is not an legitimate administration.

You, Mr. Obama, can shut up franks......... and everyone else. I am not going to lie, I don't have a file that I don't want the people to see, but if that means putting my business out there so be it. B/c each and every day, your illegitimate administration is allowed to continue, this country is being torn apart.

And for the sake of national security, that cannot nor will it be tolerated and if that means that I have to ride the BUS to come to Highland Park and make Bush answer to his participation in this fraudulent, possibly treasonous behavior then so be it. SO BE IT.

This not no game, this is not no reality show. This is real life and the very tenets of our country that ensure law and order and under attack with the help of Republicans and Democrats and that will not be tolerated.

Do us a favor, Mr. President................

Tell the truth for once.................

Earn the respect of your countrymen, even if it costs you the right to lead your countrymen.......

You can come up with a thousand crisis, there are plenty people in this country qualified to be President, and please don't be so arrogant to think your blackness or partial blackness gives you the upper hand on other people.

You cheated dude............... you are going to send CIA operatives to prison because they didn't follow the rules, but yet you stay living for free on our dollars b/c some rich white men(they just happen to be white) gave you the chance to cheat.

That makes your bs better......... is that what you think barack......... is that what you want all of these black babies you kissed and hugged during the campaign to think.

A real leader leads at all time, even if that means his or her own personal demise. B/c a real leader is always cognizant of where his actions will take his people.

And even though it will probably cost me most of the people I love, starting with parents, I am leading this country back to the common values and common sense of earning things and respect that whether you like it or not.

mentioning words like great depression, I am the first brother, none of that absolves the fact that you cheated and you need to come clean.

Trust we are a resilient country and whether we don't even have a President until this gets straight b/c Bush ain't going to leave Crawford and his fried bologna sandwiches............... guess what Mr. Obama THIS GREAT COUNTRY THAT YOUR DAD RAN TO TO BENEFIT FROM will be allright WITHOUT YOU AS ITS LEADER.

WE WERE HERE BEFORE YOU, WE WILL SURVIVE THROUGH THIS MESS YOU AND KENNEDY AND ACKERS AND BUSH PUT US IN.

WE WILL SURVIVE BABY.......... DON'T FOOL YOURSELF AND GO TO BED ON THAT PIPE DREAM.

We are a country of surviors, don't think you are bigger than this country and your absense will break us.

it won't..........

while you on vacation, think about that. b/c this birther issue will not stop until you end it and tell the truth, and passing some damn leglislation just to say I did it, only shows how much of a selfish, hapless, ham of a politician you really are......

not about hate, this is about law and doing right.......

TELL THE TRUTH, OBAMA, AND END IT WITH SOME PRIDE AND DIGNITY, BUT IF YOU CAN'T, THE END WILL COME TO YOU.

I keep you in my prayers, b/c I really don't think you know better, but please don't think by getting Franks to drop it, this is anywhere near over.

It will not rest until you are removed. that's it, that's all........

Sorry, America, had to be said. I ain't happy about it neither, but egregious behavior on this level cannot stand for anyone or any race..........
