I’m relatively new at being a Christian. So, when choosing a local church to attend, I chose the nearest one- it was right around the corner from my house. I met some wonderful people there, and learned how to worship God the United Methodist way- sitting like a statue, and quiet as a mouse. And when church was over, everyone went out the door in two minutes flat, including the pastor. I knew I was missing something but I didn’t know what, yet.
It’s really funny how hindsight is 20/20. Now that we are drawing near to the end of the Obama era, it’s plain to see- his whole strategy was to inflate the bubbles, then claim it’s working. From bailouts to health care, the robots in the media keep saying it’s working. And now, with free college for two years- doesn’t he know there is a huge bubble of student loan debt? And a huge bubble of National debt? How is piling on more debt going to help? It just inflates the bubble. And when inflation really kicks in (we haven’t seen anything yet) it will get worse- way worse.
There is usually a simple solution, but these lawyers in DC only know how to twist words to mean whatever they want them to mean, and to write bills with so much jargon that you have to be a lawyer to understand them in the first place. Then, of course, they don’t read it anyway- but that’s another story.
Black Lives Matter. So do white lives, and every other color. Cops matter too. We all matter. But, with all this unrest among the black community and the police lately, it reminds me of what it was like for me, when I was a little punk growing up in Chicago. Yeah, I was bad. And I don’t mean that in the good way. And I’ve been harassed by cops more times than you would probably believe. But people who grew up in Chicago know I am telling the truth.
The way I see it, no one is addressing the real issue. And, by focusing on one race of people, we as a nation are heading down a path that cannot end well, for either side.
This story is not about any particular politician. It is about a certain mindset, and people I know- real people who vote liberal without thinking- people who put politics above real life. I’m talking about family members who I have known and loved all my life. It was through their hatred of all things good, that I came to this conclusion. And now, as I had some time to think about it, the way the hate grew over the years, I can clearly see the reasoning that led to this inevitable outcome- liberals MUST hate. If they don’t, they implode. It’s the reason we as a nation are so divided, and the reason why my family is so divided as well.
There is a new petition gaining ground, and I’m here to help it along. It’s a national right-to-carry for truckers petition. And it makes some valid points. I believe the time is right to get this into law soon. It would also allow anyone who travels for a living to carry a weapon anywhere in the US as long as they have a permit in their home state. If passed into law, this would supersede any local or state laws- I love that!
I’m 54-years old, and I’ve been working since I was 16. I’ve seen some good years and some bad years. But in general, it keeps getting worse as time goes on. Well, it was slowly getting worse, but in recent years it spiked upward, so now it is getting worse at an alarming rate. I don’t need a lot of government figures, statistics or economic indicators and other fake crap to tell me what’s going on. I know what I see. And I can tell you this- times are tough, and they’ve never been tougher. I thought I had it rough when I was younger, working for minimum wage. But in hindsight, those were the good ol’ days.
If everyone would just step back, and get off of their partisan-hack soapbox, and look at it as a real person with health care needs, maybe we can fix a real problem. Nobody is really doing that, on either side. I’m so sick and tired of all the partisanship in the so-called health care debate. ObamaCare is working, not it’s not. Who gives a flying crap? We don’t want health insurance. We want health care. And we don’t want to pay an arm and a leg for it. Why is that so hard for these clowns in Washington to understand? Another thing- it’s not about numbers, it’s about people.
Did you ever wonder why our once great country has become so divided? I can tell you exactly why- and why it’s a terrible idea to continue this separation. I think both sides of the political isle can agree on this if they just step back and really look at it. It’s not that we are more divided now than ever. We have always had our disagreements- and always will. The real problem is- we don’t want to be told what to do- none of us. Our freedom in this country is something within. Whether liberal or conservative, we all want to be living our lives the way we see fit.
I read a bunch of stories about people who lost their health coverage, had to pay higher premiums, and otherwise got screwed by ObamaCare. I even saw a few liberal media pieces about how great it is, and how all of those stories are fake. Well, I finally got around to doing my own ObamaCare sign-up, and wow- it hurts- bad! In fact, it’s so ridiculous, I have only one choice that makes any sense- don’t buy any health insurance and just pay the penalty.
