Blogging Return: Trouble Making Subject For Me

Well, it sure has been a while! The little posting that I did dealt with special days and holidays. Just when it was time to take this blog away from WordPress and make it my own, I lost the blogging fever. That fever has yet to fully return, but it is long past time to put a post on this blog.

ImpeachOkay, I am blogging after a long while on a subject, that had me fussing in past blog posts, but it still gets to me and also gets me in to trouble. Last Saturday, a person angrily responded to my comments on his Facebook page and unfriended me. This self-proclaimed Christian man was so angry at my comment that he used some curse words. Of course it was about Pres. Obama. Just because, I respond with correct information that does not hurt Obama does not mean, I am secretly for him. As far as the unfriending goes, I replaced him with a new Facebook friend. I was commenting on his ‘Impeach Obama’ meme.  He did not like my comment of the required 67 Senate votes for conviction and that Obama was not going anywhere until Jan 20, 2017.

I see plenty of ‘Impeach Obama’ memes on Facebook. This tells me that there are many in this country  who have an inaccurate knowledge base of the presidential impeachment process. There are too many people who think impeachment equals removal from office and that is wrong. Remember Bill Clinton suffered impeachment, but he was not convicted and finished out his 2nd term. Oh, the millions spent on trying to remove Clinton from the Presidency and in the end, that did not happen! If impeachment does not result in a conviction and removal from office, then it is a waste of time and money.

Impeachment is really an indictment. The removal from office only comes after the trial and deliberation of the Senate with a guilty verdict. The guilty verdict requires 2/3 i.e. 67 Senate vote. In the Republican vs the Democrat realm, there are not enough votes in the Senate for a conviction. There is anger with the House so far for not getting the impeachment process underway. But the House knows the Senate does not have the 67 votes for a conviction.

I think many of those who want impeachment as my ex-Facebook friend are among the crowd that held back their vote or voted for some 3rd party candidate that could not possibly win in 2012 due to anger with the Republican Party. That anger was so volatile, that they did not care that Barack Obama would receive another term, but now they do. Desiring impeachment is a way of making amends with themselves for allowing their actions to help Pres. Obama to another term. Read up on the process of a presidential impeachment here.

2014 Happy Independence Day: The 4th of July

On this great holiday, go here to take the full version of the citizenship test. I correctly answered 45 out of 50. The question on the Indian tribes was one of the questions I incorrectly answered. Have a wonderful Independence Day and enjoy the patriotic music features.

2014 Happy Father’s Day

The following is my Father’s Day post from last year. I feel it is an excellent Father’s Day post for 2014. This post also makes me miss my father who went to be with the Lord in 2007 even more.

The righteous man walks in his integrity; 
His children are blessed after him.

Happy Fathers Day2

My late father was absolutely the greatest. He was an excellent family man. I am around many people today and even going back some years who do not know what it is like to be raised by a man like my father. He struck the right cord in the household growing up. He was not rigid and dictatorial. He commanded respect without demanding it. I could always talk to him.

My father was very friendly. I remember him talking to a couple of my 5th grade classmates who did not know I was his daughter. When they found out he was my father, I was told of him being so nice and being so handsome. When I run into men who grew up in the neighborhood, they talk of how my father stopped his outside work around the house to talk to them and how they appreciated and learned from those talks. He once mentioned when I was in my late teens how he eventually made peace with a person on his job that did not like him. I wondered how could anybody not like my father!

On my Facebook page, a former church member of my former Philly church commented on my father’s love for music and singing. He sang tenor and did solos. He especially loved sacred music and traditional hymns. The hymn for this Sunday music post is O For A Thousand Tongues To Sing. My father thought he knew all the hymns. So it surprised him to hear this hymn for the first time in the 1980s. He loved it right away.

My flesh and my heart fail; But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
