AMERICAN VALUES….STILL?

3 May

TRUE AMERICAN VALUES are compassion for the oppressed, independence, honest labor, charity (freely given), humility, virtue, valor, entrepreneurship, self reliance, honor, trustworthiness, economic and fiscal stability, reliability, respect for the achievements of the past while going forward seeking further grand accomplishments, …and above all: gratitude for, and a recognition of, the blessings of our Creator. These are the values which brought forth the most “successful” nation in the history of mankind: The United States of America with its Republican form of government and its truly inspired Constitution. Question for all…. Who would seek to make “valueless” any or all of the above?

ABOUT LOSS OF JOBS TO OVERSEAS

27 Apr

Now there is another viewpoint about “jobs overseas”…. Who fills these manufacturing jobs? Are they not our “brothers and sisters” because we are all God’s children, and do these less-fortunate-than-us “kin” now have the means (no matter how little compared to us in America) to provide for themselves and their families? Do we here truly suffer due to hunger and deprivation because these foreigners have employment…some for the first time in their lives? Great idea Donald Trump….return those American jobs grabbers back into poverty where they belong.

But there remains the question as to how this nation’s workforce is employed. A Communist form of government has never been able to provide legitimate work other than as overseers and by being properly connected…..though a lot of slave labor. A Socialist (Progressive) government only hides much unemployment and glosses it over with welfare payments. A “Free Enterprise” system cannot do the job it is capable of when overbearing government regulations stifle it.

There will always be some unemployed even when work is available, because some are just not mentally or physically able to work, some are happy to freeload because they just do not want to perform labor, and some do not have the skills needed to do the job. SOLUTION: Without diminishing labor laws enacted for the physical protection of the worker, businesses and industries must have the burden of governmental over-regulation removed or very much reduced, allowing for an expansion of their enterprises and the need for more employees. Youth must get over the idea of being a well paid “professional”, and seek to become skilled as tradesmen (plumbers, mechanics, electricians, tool and dye makers, engineers, architects, artists, painters, accountants,etc.). We already have too many lawyers, stockbrokers, rock stars and athletes…..and especially, bureaucrats. Our “nanny government” absolutely cripples job producing enterprise, so let’s get rid of at least half of the federal and state bureaucracies. With America’s inventive spirit many new industries will develop. In the very dangerous world in which we live, our military should be brought back to the world’s greatest fighting force and being a military person should not be demeaned. There are many great needs in the world like food and clean water so agriculture and aquaculture should be looked at. Some much more, but the point is, we really do not need many of those low paying unskilled jobs that are being done overseas. We only need to invigorate our own economy with common sense laws and an optimistic approach.

CONCERNS ABOUT A MANDATED $15.00 hour MINIMUM WAGE..

12 Apr

Assuming the current average of $9.00 hour (Burger King) wage, hence a $6.00 hourly increase to lower paid workers, there is now a ripple up effect on many wages, notably that of union workers whose contracts calls for a comparable
hourly increase, regardless of other benefits. Automobile assembly line workers get about $15.00 an hour (but often comes with bonuses and profit sharing), so that would increase their wage to $21.00 hr. Cost of cars will have to be increased…..ditto effect on most manufactured U.S. items. We are talking about low skilled workers, so prices on American goods go up….or jobs go overseas. But what is the case for workers in service occupations that require more than rote labor who already are paid more than a minimum wage? They are paid more because they provide more to their company….but they are not going to stand still and see someone worth much less (economically speaking) making as much or almost as much as they. They will demand a raise to balance things out and to recognize their greater worth….and now higher charges for services. Eventually prices of almost everything affected by labor costs will go up. If ones wages keep up with increased costs of what one buys or what services one receives, it may not make that great a difference. If you are not a wage earner, however (retired, unemployed, self-employed, student, or just “coasting”) it could make a very big difference in your lifestyle, and perhaps so much so that you will want help from the government. Now the government, will most likely grow the welfare state even more: “How can we not take care of our “poor”? Now we have bigger government hence increased taxes…taxes which will need to come from those employed persons now earning more because there is just so much that can be squeezed out of the very wealthy….at least those that have not yet fled the country or folded their businesses. Ultimately, misfortune must be shared by all, and government will see to it that equality of unhappiness is the norm….controlled by government…”in the name of the people”, of course. Now I did not discuss the massive federal and state bureaucracies in this discussion, because those workers are already ahead of the game and will be taken care of regardless.

Obama’s unusual statements and actions consistent with Malignant Narcissism, Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD),

21 Nov

WELL DOCUMENTED AND FACTUAL,..Unless removed from office soon, this Republic may not survive.

Senior Citizens Public Square

OBAMA MAN CHILD IN OFFICEThis is how Obama sits at a moment when someone challenges him or infuriates him is in the room – portraying this obscene gesture, but with plausible deniability, that he can talk his way out of if ever questioned on it.

Explanation of what you’re seeing

Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) is marked here by an uncontrollable need to feed Obama’s view of self-grandiosity – his view of himself as above us all.

Obama does this gesture or position repeatedly at the precise moment that he mentions people who challenge his authority – the most hated thing to a narcissist.

Obama is not simply giving someone the finger as some politicians have done. That would be un-Presidential, but sane.

Rather, he is doing it in front of millions of people, but intending to NOT get caught. He does it covertly, and deniably. Meanwhile, these videos show it must be done…

THE “PROGRESSIVE” AGENDA IN A NUT SHELL

8 Oct

Individual rights are only those as granted by the State.

There is no personal property.  Its use is only as the State allows it.

The State is the caretaker of all property….In the name of the people.

National interests are subservient to world interests.

The individual does not have the capability to make good decisions; an elite body must take charge of all matters.

Opposition can not be allowed; any means of physically opposing the collective leadership must be taken out of the hands of the people….for the good of the people.

There is no God…..Only the State.

SO WHY ARE BALLOTS PRINTED IN OTHER THAN ENGLISH ????

Becoming a US citizen is a process that requires diligence and perseverance. Read over the eligibility criteria below before you decide to embark on the application process for naturalization. Doing so will help you decide if naturalization is a realistic option for you.
 
An applicant for US citizenship must meet the following requirements:
 
Must be admitted to the United States as a lawful permanent resident (LPR), commonly referred to as one who possesses green card status. There is only one exception to this requirement: If an applicant has served in the US armed forces during war, that person may be naturalized without first becoming a permanent resident if they were in the United States upon induction or enlistment into the US military.
 
Continuous residence in the US for at least five years immediately preceding the applicant’s filing for naturalization. Continuous residence is not the same thing as physically present here. That is, one must maintain their status as a legal permanent resident but not necessarily be physically inside the borders of the US to accomplish this. For example, if one is overseas for a portion of this period, maintaining an address location and paying one’s state and federal taxes may help ensure continuity of residence for this requirement. Also, if overseas for any more than a few months, it may be advisable to obtain a travel document prior to departing. This may be done on INS Form I-131. Only three years continuous residence are required if the applicant is filing for US citizenship based upon marriage. This exception applies if you are the spouse of a US citizen and have been married for three years; are the battered spouse of a US citizen (even if you are separated or divorced); are a refugee or political asylee; in the US military or are a widow or widower of someone in the US military; or are a spouse of a US citizen in particular overseas jobs.
 
Actual physical residence (within the state in which the petition is filed) during at least the three months immediately before filing for US citizenship is another requirement.
 
Physical presence within the US for a total of at least one half of the period of required continuous residence. That is, two and a half years for most applicants and one and a half years for spouses of US citizens.
 
Continuous residence (but not necessarily physical presence) in the United States from the date of filing the naturalization application up to the date of being sworn in as a US citizen.
 
The ability to read, write and speak ordinary English unless they are physically unable to do so due to a disability such as being blind or deaf, or suffer from a developmental disability or mental impairment. Those over 50 years old on the date of filing who have lived here for a total of at least 20 years after admission as a permanent resident and those who are over 55 and have been legal permanent residents for at least 15 years are also exempt from this requirement.
 
A basic understanding of the fundamentals of US history and government. There is an oral test that covers fundamentals of US history and government and it is required for naturalization.
 
Good moral character and an affinity for the principles of the US Constitution. Good moral character is reflected in the applicant’s behavior before applying for US citizenship. Good moral character is demonstrated by paying taxes and having a clean criminal record, for example, and is an important part of qualifying for naturalization.
 
Applicants should be at least 18 years of age at the time of filing. Certain exceptions exist, however, for the children of other permanent residents who are seeking naturalization.
Other Paths to Citizenship
 
An applicant under the age of 18, may still qualify for naturalization if one of his or her parents is a citizen or becomes a citizen of the United States.
 

THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF SOCIALISM?

29 Aug

SOCIALISM…WONDERFUL IS IT NOT? Everything belongs to everybody, so the greedy desire to personally own something happily gives way to the greater joy of sharing everything.
The old way of acquiring things for personal pleasure leads to wanting even more, and evil because it means another person can’t have it. As one person gains, another must lose.
All things, then, must be held “in the name of the people”, allowing the people to use, rather than own.
In order to have a “one-ness” of all things, there must be a central authority to maintain, by all means necessary, the attitude of non-ownership and the joy of equalized possession by the people.
The most coveted of things, previously know as luxuries, must be held in the safe hands of the central authorities to avoid unhealthy desires by the populace. Be rest assured, that all items of temptation, will be taken care of very well….in the name of the people, of course.
Needless to say, labor is needed to produce the things that are to be shared, so all must labor, save for the central authorities whose contribution of guardianship is more important.
It is recognized, however, that all are not capable of laboring with the same energy, so production of goods and services will be based upon this great Socialist rule: One is to labor as best he or she feels fit so to do or is able to do, but shares equally in the fruits of combined effort.
