much to the chagrin of the right and left at times, here I am writing every day. This is what happens when you are out of work, but still committed to spreading truth. I am in a different sort of feel today. I haven't been in Texas very long so I am relearning the meaning of fall and winter. In Los Angeles, everything is summer and spring, and just a touch of fall. But in the football capital of the world, the state of Texas. Fall has a different meaning. It is when it is just enough of a chill in the air, where hits starting stinging a little more. Where the wind gets sapped out of you, a little quicker. So Congrats to Carter Alumni Michael Crabtree for signing, remember that anytime you use your body as your tool of employment to NEVER TAKE IT FOR GRANTED. Remember America, that each and every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, AMERICAN MEN AND BOYS PUT THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE LITERALLY SO THAT WE CAN LIVE OUT OUR AGRESSION THROUGH THEM. LET'S SUPPORT THEM, LET'S LOVE THEM B/C THEY GIVE UP THEIR BODIES SO WE WON'T ROT OURS IN THE PENAL SYSTEM. Much love, football players, all of you all. Much love.......
I named this post goal line stand b/c this is where we are in the health care debate. If you know football, then a goal line stand is deeper whether someone scores or not, it is an exquisite manifestation of will. There is no room for a corner to get burned deep, or no sideline for a running back to stiff arm and get another 15 yards. There is usually a matter of feet, inches, muscles, blood, sweat and tears to either the agony of defeat or the bliss of scoring. It is what it is.
Right now, we have been fighting as a country, as a congress, as races, as neighbors and that is the beautiful thing about America as Senator McCaskill (D-MO) can't understand. So Mr. Glenn Trush from politico who highlights her comments, will do you me a favor try to explain this post to the dear Senator? Drinks are on me, when I hit the chocolate city next fall......
You put your all into this stand, it becomes deeper than scoring, it becomes about protecting what's yours, protecting the very scared ground of the goal. And for both sides, we both have our goals, don't we. We all want health care, no doubt, but our goals are different. But that difference is what makes this country great. And some of you all can't see that. It is hard in the midst of a battle to appreciate what your opponent brings out of you. It is hard in the midst of a battle to appreciate that the same passion you bring is present on the other side but it is.
I have friends dying of breast cancer, I got friends living with breast cancer. I have friends who have died of AIDS, of sudden heart attacks, and my heart grieves each and every day for them. The love of my life has diabetes, my parents have it, I am surrounded on all fronts by those who have serious health problems. I worry about them. I do my best to do what I need to do to ensure that they are okay. I know the power of loss and the thought of losing some of these folk can stop me instantly in my tracks, b/c I know what it is to lose. I do...... It brings a feeling of powerlessness in me that sometimes makes it hard to stay sober b/c I have always been the one to pull something out of my hat at the last minute. And with health, it simply doesn't work that way all the time.
A lot of you all on the left, think that hurt only stays on one side of the aisle. That is a lie. A lot of you all on the left think that pain and suffering and sacrifice is a commodity only the democratic party understands. That isn't true. The difference when you scale down all of the personal crap slung at one another, all of the partisan crap that is thrown at one another is how do we go about it.
Right now, we got one side with Obama, who has some players that have signed on his team with free agency(literary license, work with me please, America, it's hard to write through tears and stay focused) like Gov. Terminator out of Cali, like Bob Dole and that's fine to stay let's get it done. But there is no need to get anything done if it isn't going to be right. And for those who feel like something is better than nothing, this is not the case when you are talking about 1/6 of the economy and MILLIONS OF LIVES. This bill includes taxes on medical supplies, back taxes and even penal time for those who simply do not want to participate in the program. Obama's argument is built on the sense that we as a country, we as a people are so fickle that if the bill doesn't go through today or this season, it will be lost. THAT IS A LIE. MLK SAW THAT THE MOUNTAINTOP WOULDN'T BE ACHIEVED ON HIS WATCH, BUT IT DIDN'T STOP HIM FROM GOING ABOUT THINGS THE RIGHT WAY, TO ENSURE THAT THE PEOPLE HE WAS FIGHTING FOR GOT THERE SAFE AND SOUND....
There is a false premise that states if we don't agree, we don't have unity. That is far from the truth. It is the unity within us that brings out the differences because we all know the need for health care reform. So Senator Hagel please stop the drama as Carrie Budoff Brown highlights his views........We don't fail if we don't succeed today. If my Black Americans had that type of mentality, hell we would still be picking cotton today.
If nothing else, if nothing else, time and age teaches you is that the world is going to keep on spinning whether you there, or not. That life and joy and death, and sorrow and loss, and gains and losses will happen and to say something so deep as to this country will lose if a bill on paper doesn't get through is disrespectful to the manifestation of spirit, mind, body and soul that is called life..........
Let's all grow up and man up and woman up, and stop that.
Obama and his team have hedged all bets on health care. He realizes that even the momentum of being awarded the Nobel peace prize will not guarantee him this bill. That reality is so real that Chris Frates highlights in politico where the democrats are probably going to skip committee and send the bill right to the President's desk so that the elected officials that YOU EMPLOY WILL NOT HAVE A VOICE TO SAY YOUR OPINION. It is not for Obama to remove your right to speak on something, or mine. It is not his place. THIS IS NOT AN ISSUE OF NATIONAL SECURITY, THIS IS AN ISSUE OF CHOICE B/C IT INVOLVES THE HEALTH OF AN INDIVIDUAL.
And I am so sorry, Mr. Obama, I am so sorry, truly I am, no sarcasm, no bs today, I am so sorry that you will not get your socialized health care without the consequences that come from it. The people have told you they don't want it, but you feel like in your heart the people need it. And that's fine, BUT THE ONLY TWO KIDS YOU GOT STAY WITH YOU FOR FREE ON OUR DOLLARS, AND THE HEALTH CARE YOU USE, WE PAY FOR ON OUR DOLLARS, NOT YOURS.
And in the end, that's the only rule of law that will not be questioned. You cannot tell people what to do. you cannot tell people what's best for them. you have to respect people's right to do what they want to do and this bill could have been written better where it would have bi-partisan support. B/c if snowe does vote on it, she will not have a dime of money from the RNC for her re-election, it is what it is. B/c to vote for this bill in its current form is a repudiation of the republican values and brand she extols when she comes to pick up a check from steele.
Right now, the GOP which will draw my ire to Rep. Cantor and Democrats are doing a second stimulus bill. We got Afghanistan, we got Iraq, we got the c-17 plane which should be supported b/c it empowers our military and our economy. We got Fannie mae out of money, we got Freddie mae out of money, we got ethical investigations to pay for b/c pelosi will not check her friend Rangle and make him step down, we got ACORN bleeding the tax-payers dry and laughing in our face, b/c Rep. Franks and Pelosi can't afford the political cost to cut them loose. Silla Brooks in www.thehill.com tells us how even now obama is destructing the national banking system, think of the fiscal chaos of the 80's with savings and loan exponentially by 10 b/c of the federal regulation he is going to cut and what will that leave Tiny tim to do but sit back and get paid for doing nothing. Check out this article.
Life is not driven simply by health care. The world is trying to not make the dollar the global currency. Do you realize what kind of exchange rates we will have to pay? Do you understand America what kind of changes will be to our exports and imports and the direct impact on our ability to produce jobs especially in the manufacturing sector? Do you realize that this bill is being rammed through to protect illegal immigrants b/c we have a supposed president who identifies more with illegal immigrants than his American citizens he is supposed to protect and defend at all costs?
We have to recognize the infinite wisdom of the lyrics of one of my all time favorite songs....... Maze f/ Frankie Beverly's "We are one"
Well Well] MMMMMMM
oh oh oh baby.
why we treat each other in this way,
taking off time with the silly silly game we play,
we got our love,
and no matter how it's said and done,
we are one,
no matter what we do,
we are one,
love will see us through,
we are one,
and thats the way it is,
we are one,
We are one, America. Senator McCaskill, Probably Senator Obama, we are one. And just b/c all of us don't agree, the love we have for our families, the love we have for our friends, our children, our citizens, our troops, our country is what is going to keep us together, is what has kept us together, and unfortunately if mr. obama had been raised over here he would understand that a little deeper.
We have to make a goal line stand and say no to this bill, b/c we have loved ones to fight for to, Mr. obama. Love and pain don't just stop on one side of the aisle.
This bill ain't right. It doesn't address tort reform, illegal immigration, it penalizes people for doing what the hell they want. And most importantly, it goes against the grain of what this country stands for.
WE all we got even republicans and you will not shame us out of loving and standing up for this country in the way we feel best. Nobel prize or not.
This country was built on the strength of one lang... This country was built on the strength of one language, one Judeo-Christian culture. Multicultural societies usually collapse, as in the Middle East. Even in the developed countries of Europe, there is a tenuous unsettled calm that will erupt finally over both legal and illegal immigration. Even America cannot support millions more people in their vehicles on eroding highways and surface streets. Our infrastructure has been blatantly ignored for years, bridges in urgent disrepair. We remain mostly alone in fighting foreign wars and other countries are telling us, that the dollar is unlikely to be the main trading currency. Then we have programmed political idiots we elected telling us, we need to pass a path to citizenship for the 20 million plus unfortunate peasant who illegally crossed our border.
WHERE IS THE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS COMING FROM TO SUPPORT THE POOR PEOPLE OF THE WORLD? THE TAXPAYERS POCKET OF COURSE? My faith is very important to me, but that doesn't mean I'm going to commit financial suicide. Let these illegal aliens get their own governments in order, and not take from us? The Urgent truth can be found at NUMBERSUSA. Read about the corruption in Washington at JUDICIAL WATCH. CAPSWEB for the truth about OVERPOPULATION. BE REST ASSURED THAT THE PEOPLE WHO ARE EXPECTED TO BE GUARDIANS OF ALL AMERICANS, ARE IN ACTUAL FACT THE PUPPETS OF THE BUSINESS CONSORTIUM'S AND SPECIAL INTEREST LOBBYISTS.
The doors are covertly opening again to another il... The doors are covertly opening again to another illegal immigration invasion. We now discerned that religious organizations are trying to use their congregations as a fulcrum to apply president Obama's Immigration reform package. It's in my mind that just people of the Baptist faith like myself, who are ardent worshipers, but whoever live in the stark veracity of real-time. Many are aware of the dangers of leniency for lawbreakers, that will be even more magnified by not only those already here, but the destitute restless people waiting for the--AMNESTY--bell to clang? It’s utterly irrational to expect that millions more will not tear across our borders? Yes! They will greatly benefit, but what about the 15 million jobless Americans?
There is no possible way Citizens and legal residents can compete in this deep recession, against the poor of other countries? An avalanche of the young and old that will devour billions of more dollars from government handouts, to not only clothe shelter and feed them, but the illegal laborers wages partly transferred abroad? Churchgoers may think they are doing god's work, but what they are actually doing is stealing the bread from American children's table, low income families lifeline of paying for gas to get them to work, pay for an apartment? The magnet of course is the inevitable abhorrent businesses, who will solicit for minimum wage illegal aliens to build on their profits. THIS IS WHY WE MUST DEMAND NATIONWIDE E-VERIFY! A COMMITMENT FROM THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO MAKE IT MANDATORY FOR EVERYONE WHO HAS A JOB, TO BE VETTED. THAT NOBODY SHOULD BE EXEMPT. PENALTIES FOR NOT UTILIZING E-VERIFY, SHOULD BE EXEMPLARY? WE ARE TALKING ABOUT AMERICAN LIVES IN TURMOIL, BECAUSE JOBS ARE BEING STOLEN BY ILLEGAL WORKERS.Its operation will draw to the surface illegal labor who should not be here. We should inform ICE of anybody hiring illegal immigrants or you have suspicion of underpaid workers. My church pastor on the outskirts of Indianapolis has been playing on the congregation’s sensitivities, but the good man was unable to answer the torrent of questions?
Least of all myself, who explained how the Council of Foreign Relations has been planning for years, to incorporate Mexico and Canada with ourselves, to import an unceasing flow of cheap labor? Or that the ACLU was founded by a communist or that groups like the Southern Poverty league was substantially financed by the business community, to undermine the reputations of anti-illegal immigrant groups. That even the radical ethnic caucuses such as La Raza was furnished by grants from our own government or corporate concerns. That in actual fact--WE--are paying the price tag as taxpayers for our own downfall? Unless a large majority of the population yells down the phone-lines at 202-224-3121 this nation will become a balkanized society?
Not my words, but a trusted reader, who is so much more aware of the details than us. The points that these comments bring up is the ones I am trying to hammer home. We are one, with all due respect, Mr. Obama, we have national unity, otherwise we would have an uprising already in at the white house in January, but being as one, don't mean we all think as one, nor should we.
We must pay attention to the articles posted and the phone numbers and information posted in the bold. This is a war and at the end, whether democrats and the obama nation want to admit it or not, we all are one and one the same side.
God Truly bless all of you all today,
said with love and honestly,
