Rising like the Phoenix…

September 25, 2015

I haven’t posted to my blog for four years.

It’s been a tough four years.

I was still unemployed when I stopped posting. I had been unemployed since October 2008. The economy went south. I remained unemployed (on a full-time basis) until June of 2014. I had been working part-time as an accounting instructor at a local community college when I got the opportunity to apply for a full-time position and was, by the grace of God, offered the position.

During the last four years, my wife and I lost our #2 son to a drug addiction. I’m sure I’ll be writing about that in the future.

God has been good to us. Better than we deserve! I’m thankful for Him! And for His Son, Jesus Christ!

Now, things in our society have gone from bad to worse. It is incredible to me to see the evil in the world. I’m ashamed of the leaders of our country! It’s been simmering for quite awhile, but I’m back here to say I’M AN ANGRY AMERICAN AND I CAN’T STAY SILENT ANY LONGER!

More to come… Welcome back to my world!

Ahmadinejad calls for US leaders to be ‘buried’

October 3, 2010

First of all… this from the religion of peace? Hmmm, I don’t think so.

Second, we don’t have a leader with a strong enough backbone to get on the horn to this guy to tell him to shut the pie hole! Enough of this pacifist, teach-the-world-to-sign garbage. Where is a guy like Ronald Reagan when we need him the most?

Reagan was a man for his time. I believe God placed him in his circumstances back in the early Eighty’s because He knew the world needed a leader who was willing to step up to the plate in the defense of freedom. We need God to do this again for us!

We need another leader who will assert himself in the name of freedom. Rather than trying to take away our freedoms as President Obama and his administration is trying to do, we need a leader who will once again enshrine freedom as a way of life for Americans. We need a leader who isn’t afraid to stand up to the thugs of this world and tell them, “Not on MY watch are you going to mess around with America!”

We need a leader who is also willing to stand up to the progressives in our own country and tell them, “Give us our country back!” It’s time that all citizens of the United States get behind the Constitution and the flag and the Liberty Bell and the freedoms for which men and women for hundreds of years have DIED! We need a leader who will demand such patriotism and who will accept nothing less and who will strike down every effort of Congress and the Supreme Court to wrest from us our God-given freedom!

Dear God, please give us that leader. Dear God, please help the citizens of the United States to wake up, to stand up and to be counted on to support and defend and follow such a leader.

Weekly Jobless Claims Dip 16,000, to 453,000 / Big whoop!

September 30, 2010

People will be dancing in the streets! Another sign of the Great Recovery! Companies are back in the hiring business! We’re saved!

Wow! Jobless claims are down a measly 3.4%. Forget the averages and LOOK AT THE NUMBERS! 453,000 people (times how much for the government’s fudge factor) are still requesting INITIAL unemployment benefits! THAT’S A LOT OF PEOPLE! Having been unemployed for almost two years, this issue hits pretty close to home.

We continue to have these monthly “celebrations” where the jobless claims float up and down depending upon which companies are feeling like gambling on the future. I, for one, am not hosting a “we’re back to work” party yet. The government continues its out-of-control spending. The cowards in Congress leave for their annual recess without taking action on maintaining the Bush tax cuts—a clearly partisan action on the part of the Democrats—that would, at least, give companies some reason to believe that things could get better. I am sickened by how our legislators continue to hold Americans hostage as if we were so many cattle at an auction.

November 2 is just over a month away. Now, more than ever, the American people should vote to make a difference. Our anger has been stirred. We may not see the path ahead as clearly as we would like, and that includes some rough road we may still travel as the Great Ship is righted. However, we can see the recent past and we know it hasn’t worked. We can also look back far enough to see where fiscal responsibility and minimal tax burdens have fostered a healthy economy. For me, the choice is pretty simple and some people have likened this election cycle as an opportunity for us to “take out the trash.” Unlike the detestable chore at home that no one wants to do, taking out THIS trash is easy… there’s no gunk to get on your hands, you can do it rain or shine with little discomfort, and the prospects for a cleaner tomorrow are very exciting.

Make the right choice, America!

Congressional members of the Socialist Party of America

August 13, 2010

Check the list to see if your legislator is a member of the Socialist Party of America. This list was released as of October 2009, so chances are there were more on the list than there are now.

It’s time to make some noise about these traitors to our country! We can rid ourselves of some of them through the ballot box in November.

Tea Parties

March 29, 2010

Just a quick note about my feeling about tea parties, particularly the ones held the past couple of weeks as the circus for Obamacare reached its peak. My comments were in answer to an email I received regarding the Starlight Tea Party held on March 28th in Searchlight, Nevada.

The fact that tea parties are just a representative part of all of the US and that the House and Senate STILL ignored us  tells me that the government doesn’t represent me or care about my ideas/feelings. Apparently they don’t care about my vote either, but I hope they get the message loud and clear in November. Whether Republican or Democrat, I think it’s time to move them all out and get some new representatives. Let’s hear it for term limits and for more use of the impeachment power for those representatives who don’t uphold the Constitution.
