Van Jones, Green Jobs Czar/self-proclaimed communist/left-wing radical nut job, resigned late Saturday night/early Sunday morning amid controversy of past statements, actions, and beliefs. Despite Obama's critics regarding czars and their appointment without congressional oversight, Obama today announced the creation and appointment of yet another czar...Ron Bloom as a "Manufacturing Czar." ENOUGH OF THE CZARS ALREADY! Unbelievable.
--The Race Card
On my way to work his morning I was listening to a radio program where the host, I forget his name, was discussing President Obama's speech he's going to give to school kids. Indoctrination was being discussed...anyway, to make a long story short this caller basically said that all "you people" don't want Obama to give this speech because he's black. Really? I can't believe that people are still fixated on the color of skin of our president. Not just this guy, but there has been many, even in Washington and celebrities alike who say that anybody who disagrees with Obama's agenda is a racist and because he's black. I could care less. I do care about our President's policies and don't agree with 99% of the time. COLOR DOESN'T MATTER! GET OVER YOURSELF ALREADY! Unbelievable.
The debate isn't over! The current bill H.R. 3200 has gotta go or revised. On this same radio show I was listening to this morning a republican lawmaker was on talking about the 1,000+ page bill, which he actually read. Even though President Obama has said that we can keep our own doctor and private insurance if we want, but in the bill it says differently. In addition, Medigap is buh-bye, and much much more. Plus the individuals trying to push this through hasn't even read it! I'll try and get the audio/transcript...he pointed it out in much more detail.
Obama has always been a proponent of a single health care system that's run by the government. A public option is their doorway to getting it and IT WILL run private insurance out of business. ENOUGH OF THE PUBLIC OPTION ALREADY! IT WILL DRIVE THIS COUNTRY INTO THE GROUND! Unbelievable.
This is another bill that's trying get passed in the middle of the night. It passed the house before the August break and will be going to the Senate soon. Basically this is an energy tax bill that will increase energy costs up to $3,000 per year or more per family! Obama said it himself that his cap-and-trade bill will mean that energy companies will need to retrofit their operation to come to standards, which will cost money and those companies will pass that cost on to consumers. Watch the video here. SO MUCH FOR PROMISING NO TAX INCREASES, EH PRESIDENT OBAMA? Unbelievable.
--5,000 Year Leap
Continuing with the history of our nation and what the Founding Fathers believed, the book I'm reading, The 5,000 Year Leap is very interesting. I'm currently reading about how if our nation was to succeed and prosper with the Constitution and Declaration of Independence the people needed to be moral and virtuous, and they needed to elect virtuous officials. These officials needed to be elected not for self-serving reasons or greed, but to be a servant of the people. Proverbs 29:2 says, "When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn."
From the book I quote: "Samuel Adams knew the price of American survival under a Constitutional form of government when he wrote: 'The sum of all is, if we would most truly enjoy the gift of Heaven, let us become a virtuous people; then shall we both deserve and enjoy it. While, on the other hand, if we are universally vicious and debauched in our manners, though the form of our Constitution carries the face of the most exalted freedom, we shall in reality be the most abject slaves. (Wells, Life of Samuel Adams, 1:22-23).'"
