Career Day in 2014

This is sad, but it is a reality of today’s economy. There are young college graduates finding themselves working in fast food and/or taking more than 1 part-time job. They thought they would be employed by an organization, big company or etc. making a nice salary with good benefits. Do you support and did you vote for Barack Obama for President?  We are now into the 6th year of his presidency. It is not intelligent to continue to blame George W. Bush for the state of the economy 6 years after his presidency. This economy that delivers low skilled full-time and non benefit part-time jobs over skilled full-time jobs with benefits is the Obama economy.

And These are Young Voters

This is an example of ignorance among the educated. We have college students who cannot name a U. S. Senator. That means they do not know the two senators who represents them in the U. S. Senate. Now how sad is that? What where they taught the 3 branches of government in school? Were they paying any attention? Are these students voting? If they are, not being able to name a senator puts them in the low information bracket of voters.

And I Happily Made It Through Those Years!

Having my young childhood in the 50s and into the early 60s, I can relate to most that is in the video, especially my parents siding with the teacher. I more than survived. I lived a blessed happy childhood. I remember playing on neighborhood playground equipment long before the required surface padding. I cannot fathom why my parents never forbade me to play on those see-saws that went rather high in the air. I fell off of them a few times. It’s a wonder I never ended up with a serious head injury or a broken neck! In fact, I was in my late 30s before I even dislocated a bone.

No to the Democratic Left Defining Those on the Right

FBMeme_Being for God and Country

Oh, I like this Citizens for Freedom meme, but it does remind me of the success of liberal/lefty Democrats in projecting the beliefs stated in yellow on to the right thinking conservatives and Republicans. The one thing that was left out in yellow from decades ago is uncaring rich fat cats. Now most of the folks among my christian Democratic Party family and friends would object to being called anti-God and amoral even though they turn their head the other way on such super pro democratic issues as late-term abortion and promoting being gay as an alternative lifestyle to young school-age  children as you can read here.

One can find non believers in God in any political party, but there are Democrats who are making the effort to do away with God in their party’s platform. I remember the shock of hurt on my mother’s face in watching the Democrats boo God during their 2012 national presidential convention. As much as my mother loves certain TV preachers and prophecy teachers, she ignored them when they spoke on political issues, because they are all Republican and conservative. Today she has a hard time trying to ignore them and that it hurt for her to realize how far the Democratic Party moved away from the ways of God. 

When it comes to thinking for oneself, for me, it is about escaping group black think. I do not have to think a certain way because of the color of my skin. I am in that category of believing in, honoring and loving God and loving my country and the Democrats continue to be successful with the deep put down of those in that category. I still want to visit other countries, but do not want to live out my life as a citizen anywhere but here in the United States. What is wrong with that?The beliefs stated in yellow in the above meme are not representative of those on the right. We need to increase our preparation for success in keeping the Democratic left from being able to negatively define us on the Republican and conservative right.
