How are you? I thought about writing yesterday, but I spent some time filling out applications trying to get a job. Spent some more time, trying to hustle (legally, of course) some gas money and what not. By the time, I got home my back was killing me, so I laid it down.
Over the past couple of days, I have been helping my sister prepare her classroom. Although I am a republican, education has and always will be part of my platform. I think I am blessed because knowing her and so many other educators gives me a first-hand look into how the administrative aspects of classrooms are ran.
It is a shame in a country in which senators and such use tax-payer dollars to buy G-5's that teachers in public schools are forced to pay for their own supplies. Are forced to move heavy boxes and stuff from classroom to classroom each year, b/c the budgets don't allow for it each year. That has nothing to do with what we are going to talk about today, but b/c I am who I am. I thought that it was worth mentioning.
So parents, before you go dogging your child's teacher, b/c they are not RAISING YOUR CHILD. REALIZE THAT THEY ARE TEACHERS AND THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE INSTILLING KNOWLEDGE, NOT VALUES AND DISCIPLINE, THAT IS YOUR JOB! ALSO, REMEMBER THAT FROM ONE WORKING PERSON TO ANOTHER, VERY FEW PROFESSIONS ARE TREATED AS SHABBILY AS TEACHERS............ As school starts, let's all try to remember that.
Your child goes to school to learn, not to be raised. And yes, I know you as parents, barely got enough time to sleep. YOU SHOULD BE COMMENDED, B/C YOUR JOB IS HELLACIOUS! NO DOUBT. But's let's all try to start this school year off different, if we can. Let's all realize that the enemy is not among us, the enemy is the degradation of values in this country to where we are working too much and not raising our children. The enemy is the economy and values we place upon that economy.
I know the Weii is all that. But maybe if you weren't spending time to buy that weii, you could have had an honest conversation with your child about life. or maybe, letting johnny get out and play for real.
you get my point........
Today, we start with doubt. As we talk about health care, there is doubt on this side, on that side. And that is nothing surprising. People have the right to question and be a little leery of people's motives and tactics especially when it comes to something as personal as health care.
We go on to being president and being presidential. E. Javers in politico discusses obama's distrust of the gop tactics. This is the perfect example of how someone can be President, but have no clue about being Presidential.
Mr. Obama, I HIGHLY DOUBT, PRETTY MUCH STRONGLY ASSERT THAT YOU ARE NOT QUALIFIED TO BE PRESIDENT OF THIS COUNTRY. At this point, really ain't no doubt in my mind b/c all you had to do is just show your long form. It is sad b/c I am going to spend this blog today giving Mr. obama some truly needed advice b/c his team of change can't say nothing like this to him. If you read my past posts regarding this birther issue, I pleaded and pleaded with the obama administration to release it. Not b/c of no sinister motive, I already know he is illegal in specific regard to the oval office.
I wanted it released so THAT HE COULD, YOU MR. PRESIDENT, COULD START ESTABLISHING SOME CREDIBILITY WITH MOST OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. This is not 2008 when you could blame McCain, Palin, Joe the Plumber and every other white person outside of your family for this society's ills. No, this is 2009, where you are the President, have already had your great stimulus plan, ran cap and trade down our throats and here we are into the second quarter of the new fiscal year, the government is out of money, cash for clunkers only enabled toyota and honda to stay afloat and give away free customer loyalty at the expense of the tax-payer.
MY POINT IS THAT IT IS ALL ON YOU. SO START ACTING PRESIDENTIAL. WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, WITH ALL THE RESPECT I CAN MUSTER FOR YOU, MR. OBAMA. PLEASE START ACTING PRESIDENTIAL INSTEAD OF A CANDIDATE THAT JUST SO HAPPENS TO BE PRESIDENT.
Amie Parnes and E. Javers in politico show how the new deficit numbers came up. OF COURSE, WE KNOW YOU INFLATED THE COST TO INCREASE THE SENSE OF URGENCY FOR SOME SORT OF HEALTH CARE LEGISLATION. Start being Presidential, Mr. President. That is a childish, transparent, and so fundamentally elementary scare tactic, it is sad and hardly worth the harvard education you say you have.
Don't raise budget numbers and make threats at the CBO so that you can scare someone into paying for something. Have you ever Mr. President been broke, so broke that even the value menu at Wendy's is outside your payscale............ B/c that is how b/c of your anti-business policies a lot of Americans are living these days. and when you that broke, one more damn bill ain't going to make a difference.
STOP SCARING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, TALKING ABOUT HOW MUCH HEALTH CARE COSTS ARE GOING TO GO UP! YOU KNOW WHY THEY ARE NOT B/C HEALTH CARE IS ABOUT HEALTH, IF YOU CAN'T PAY FOR YOUR SURGERY, GUESS WHAT YOU ARE PROBABLY GOING TO LOSE A LITTLE MORE QUALITY IN YOUR LIFE, AND YOU MAY NOT BE HERE. THAT'S REAL. DON'T ACT LIKE THE WORLD IS GOING TO DIE JUST B/C HEALTH CARE IN YOUR WAY AIN'T TAKEN CARE OF.
Be Presidential........................ You can't lie about where you are from, you can't lie about what you are going to do, b/c saying "change" don't explain nothing, you can't write a 1000 page stimulus bill with 4 trillion dollars with pages of blank lines, and have the balls to tell someone what you don't trust.............
YOU ARE NOT A PRIVATE CITIZEN, ANYMORE, YOU MUST STOP THINKING LIKE A CANDIDATE AND BE PRESIDENTIAL. YEAH, IT SUCKS. HOW DO YOU THINK BUSH FELT WHEN YOU DOGGED THE CRAP OUT OF HIM TO EVEN GET IN THAT OFFICE? A LOT OF THE THINGS YOU SAID ABOUT HIM, HE DIDN'T DESERVE AND YOU AND I BOTH KNOW IT, BUT IT DIDN'T STOP YOU DID IT? B/C YOU WANTED TO BE THE MAN, well stand up and be the man.
and part of being the man, is staying above the fracas and letting things play themselves out. YOU ARE NOT JUST THE PRESIDENT OF DEMOCRATS, YOU ARE THE PRESIDENT OF ALL AMERICANS. PUT YOUR POLITICAL IDEOLOGY TO THE SIDE. STOP MAKING GUARANTEES. YOU NOR I NOR ANYONE ELSE KNOWS IF WE ARE GOING TO WAKE UP TOMORROW, SO PROMISING DEADLINES AND RESULTS ONLY DRAWS AWAY FROM YOUR CREDIBILITY BUT ALSO FROM THAT OF PUBLIC SERVANTS, and that dear sir, will not be tolerated.
SHUT UP! BE PRESIDENTIAL! Glenn Trush in politico discusses obama's concern that the gop is playing politics, duh......................................
that's life in politics, every thing is always up for grabs. isn't that your boy rahm favorite line, there is a opportunity in every crisis. Well, on a presidential level there is always a crisis. BUT THE PRESIDENT HAS TO STAY ABOVE IT. And that sucks, but that is the way that it is. IF BUSH HAD GOT INTO YOUR BUTT, LIKE YOU USE THE OVAL OFFICE AS YOUR SOAPBOX NOW, YOU WOULDN'T HAVE EVEN BEEN ABLE TO KEEP YOUR SENATORIAL JOB. WHEN CLINTON WAS PRESIDENT, AND BUSH GOT ON HIM. Do you think that Bush would be President if Bill said what he really wanted to say......... But he didn't, b/c he understood the difference between being president and being presidential.
YOU CAN'T TAKE EVERYTHING SO PERSONAL, MR. OBAMA. YOU CAN'T TAKE EVERY SLIGHT TO HEART. THIS IS PRESIDENTIAL POLITICS IN THE GREATEST COUNTRY ON EARTH, YOU HAVE TO HAVE YOUR ABILITY TO DISCONNECT AS CLOSE AS YOUR BLACKBERRY! THIS IS THE NATURE OF THE BEAST THAT YOU CHOSE TO ENGAGE.
Johnathan Martin talks about in politico how people are scared. And they have a right to be. "honest discussion" Mr. President doesn't mean discussion in the way you like it, from the dude bringing a gun up there to show you how he feels and yes, America, he was black. Every black person ain't feeling obama despite the BET informericals. to the lady saying you work for us to Spector.
BABY, THAT IS HONESTY IN ITS PUREST FORM. WHO ARE YOU, MR. OBAMA, TO QUESTION THE HEARTS AND SPIRTS OF THESE FOLK. YOU DON'T PAY FOR RENT, YOU GOT FREE INSURANCE FOR YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN FOR LIFE. YOU USE YOUR JOB TO RAISE MONEY FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY ON THE SIDE. EVERYBODY DON'T HAVE IT LIKE YOU DO.
AND WHAT YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BE ALLOWED TO DO, MR. PRESIDENT, IS DISRESPECT AMERICANS B/C YOU DON'T LIKE THE WORDS THAT ARE COMING OUT OF THEIR MOUTH. "some of them are lies", no doubt, but IT IS SOME FUZZY MATH COMING UP OUT OF YOUR CAMP TOO.
PEOPLE HAVE READ THE BILL, MR. PRESIDENT. TOM PRICE r-ga, IS A DOCTOR IN ATLANTA! AND AS HE SAID IN THIS WEEK'S REPUBLICAN ADDRESS, patients know best. BUT MY POINT IS THAT PEOPLE IN THE INDUSTRY KNOW BEST. HE IS A DOCTOR, AND HE AMONG COUNTLESS OTHERS HAVE READ YOUR BILL AND THERE ARE CALLING IT HOW THEY SEE IT, THAT DOESN'T MAKE IT NOT HONEST BECAUSE YOU DON'T LIKE THE SPIN THEY ARE GIVING IT.
You can't respond to everything that is said, YOU GAVE THAT UP WHEN YOU REFUSED TO RESIGN AND WENT AHEAD AND TOOK OFFICE. YOU MADE THAT CHOICE, DON'T BLAME THE NEED FOR BLACK PEOPLE TO SEE A BLACK FACE, B/C BLACK PEOPLE WASN'T GOING TO STOP BEING BLACK PEOPLE, IF MCCAIN HAD WON.............
YOU MADE THAT CHOICE, SO LIVE BY IT.
EVERY POLITICIAN RUNS POLITICS, EVEN WHEN WE DREAM, WE THINKING OF STRATEGY, AND DON'T THINK YOU, KORNBLUH, EMANUEAL, AND THE REST OF YOUR CREW AIN'T! THAT'S LIFE.
Kim Murphy in the LA times and Micheal Hawthorne in the Chicago Tribune both highilights stories of environmental terrorism going on. How the lack of enforcement by federal officials are living our seas, our lands, our rivers, just as dirty as romo's jock strap after practice. Now that's some funky stuff. Check out these articles, even you Mr. obama. THAT'S SOMETHING YOU CAN DO, ENFORCE.
YOU CAN'T WORRY ABOUT FIGHTING THIS HEALTH CARE FRONT, THAT IS FOR CONGRESS TO DO. YOU CAN'T ADD TO THE DIVIDE IN THIS COUNTRY BY PUTTING YOUR TWO CENTS IN............
You are going to have to take the words of people like me, all day, with a smile and say " I am going to let the process work itself out". Your boy Axelrod(I spelled his name correctly today) was trying to tell you.
The first thing you wanted to do is cut out NASA entirely, so Palin saying you would probably have some sort of death panel is not absurd, it is enterily plausible. Do I really want on my nephew's governmental record, the time he went into the doctor thinking something was wrong with him and it simply turns out that he just needed the speech from a man that what you are doing is normal and every male does it. ( read this part, three times, if you can't feel what I am saying the first).
do I really want a governmental official making a decision of whether I should have surgery knowing that smoking cigarettes caused my condition ( i don't smoke) and b/c I am 75 years old and too old to change I am going to keep smoking my cigarettes when the offical determines if I am qualified to have the surgery.
YOU SEE MY POINT, MR. PRESIDENT. EVERYBODY THAT DON'T AGREE WITH YOU, DON'T HATE BLACK PEOPLE, DON'T WANT TO SEE NO BROTHER RUNNING THINGS, NOBODY CARES AT THIS POINT. THIS IS ABOUT THE LIVES YOU SAID YOU WANTED TO "CHANGE" AND NOW THE DETAILS ARE COMING OUT, YOU THE NERVE TO POUT!
You brought all of this on yourself, Mr. Obama, and just like all little girls are told, you are going to have to take it, bear it, and grin...........
it is what it is.
Just b/c i doubt that you are really president, didn't stop me from getting up and writing and networking trying to get something done about health care, B/C IT IS WHAT THE PEOPLE WANT. I DIDN'T WASTE TIME THIS WEEK TALKING TOO MUCH AND EXPOUNDING ON MY DOUBTS ABOUT YOUR ADMINISTRATION BEING REALLY ILLEGITMATE.
FOR THE SAKE OF THIS COUNTRY, I HAVE TO HELP YOU UNDERSTAND, AND MY EGO IS BIG ENOUGH AND MY SOUL IS CONTENT ENOUGH WHERE I CAN PUT PETTY STUFF TO THE SIDE AND DO THAT. AND YOU DEAR SIR, will do that. This petty childish, it's them.......... it's the man............. it's the white folk........... it's the rich folk........... it's the christians............ it's the republcans..........
IS GOING TO STOP COMING OUT OF YOUR MOUTH!
you are going to take whatever happens not like a man, but like a President.
AND THAT MEANS SHUTTING UP, LETTING THE PROCESS WORK ITSELF, AND ENFORCING SOME RULES LIKE TALKING TO KIM MURPHY AND MICHEAL HAWTHORNE ABOUT ENFORCING THESE EPA VIOLATIONS..............
the moment, you decided not to quit, you lost Mr. obama, and it is no one's fault but your own for that. YOU TOOK THE RACIAL LEGACY OF AFRICAN-AMERICANS TO EXPAND YOUR OWN POLITICAL LEGACY..................... you know you weren't legit, you did it anyway.
AND NOW THAT YOU HAVE BROKEN ALL OF THESE BARRRIERS, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE TREATED JUST LIKE ANY OTHER PRESIDENT, LIKE ANY OTHER POLITICIAN.
SO TAKE IT, LIKE THE MAN YOU TELL MY NEPHEW YOU ARE. AIN'T NOBODY SHOWING YOU NO MERCY B/C YOU BLACK, BLUE OR ANYTHING IN BETWEEN.
AIN'T NOBODY SHOWING YOU NO MERCY, B/C THIS ABOUT NATIONAL POLITICS, WHERE EVERY WORD THAT COMES OUT OF YOUR MOUTH, AFFECTS A CITIZEN. AND IF NO ONE WILL DO IT BUT ME, YOU WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE.......................
NOT WORRIED ABOUT BEING OUT OF SCHOOL, yeah it hurts...... But even little ole' me, understands that when you take the time to lead, you have to scarfice to get things done, and in your case, Mr. obama, that means your mouth.
Think about that as you work on your golf game, straigthen out your stance, and stop being so tense when you are putting, think of it as a long flowing motion, versus trying to do every step correctly, that should help your putts a lot( I mean that seriously).
and when you come back to work, start being Presidential. so in the history books, the first black president, won't look like some loudmouth butthole so the kids you lied to about being legit, won't feel so dumb for believing in you.
President UP, MAN!
