I remember a simpler time in America not so long ago when we as a people had a common respect and reverence for our Rich Heritage and Traditions.
One might say it was the Best of Times as we all prospered and held fast those Time Honored Values that made this the Greatest Nation the World has ever known.
We were United in the belief that Freedom was a God given right to all men and women and worked hard to insure that we became that very Ideal.
We were the last best hope for all of mankind on Planet Earth.
Then Came the Break Down of the American Family
Americans began to enjoy the Fruits of their Labor and worked hard to live a better life. We moved to the Suburbs and began to enjoy the luxuries afforded us by our own prosperity.
Soon we found ourselves preoccupied with the cares of our success and buried ourselves in our technology to the point with which we forgot who we were and began living life as a video game escaping the realities of the World around us.
Not wanting to leave anyone behind we struggle to bring equality to all in the form of Social Justice only to find ourselves allowing the few to rule the many.
Our success caused us to have such a belief in ourselves that we soon found our need for God beginning to diminish in our daily lives.
We have produced a new generation of Americans that are now Selfless, Godless, and Morally Depraved. We have only ourselves to blame and reversing this trend is rapidly becoming the new Epic Battle for which America must fight.
Stand up America and fight for what is right. Stand up and let your voice be heard. Unless we reverse this Progressive Socialist Lie that has gripped our Country all might be lost and we may find ourselves, our children and our children’s children facing a thousand years of darkness.
Please Vote November 4th
President Barack Obama at times faced an unenthusiastic crowd as he addressed American military veterans at American Legion’s National convention on Tuesday. As the Daily Mail puts it, Obama received “awkward silences where White House speechwriters expected ovations.”
“You know that we should never send America’s sons and daughters into harm’s way unless it is absolutely necessary and we have a plan and we are resourcing it and prepared to see it through,” Obama said.
After a brief moment of silence, weak applause followed.
A seemingly weaker response followed when Obama said America’s “longest war” in Afghanistan would soon come to a “responsible end.”
However, one of the most awkward moments came when the president had to wait several seconds for any response from the audience.
“As we go forward, we will continue to partner with Afghans so their country can never again be used to launch attacks against the United States,” he said.
Several seconds of awkward silence followed before scattered clapping is heard.
The Right Pundit has compiled a video containing several moments where applause lines received very tepid clapping or just plain silence:
The VA scandal has not helped Obama’s standing among military veterans.
In the same speech, Obama announced 19 new executive actions for treating mental health problems and for suicide prevention of American veterans and vowed to fix the scandal-plagued Department of Veterans Affairs.
“Veterans called for it, we heard you, which is why today I am announcing 19 new executive actions to help improve mental health care for those american heroes and their families,” Obama said.
GOD BLESS OUR VETERANS AND GOD BLESS THESE
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
By now I am sure that just about every American is fed up with the Key Stone Cops we elected to represent us in Washington. Over the last ten or fifteen years we have watched our political leaders play out their greedy games and childish attacks on one another all the while ignoring the wants and needs of their constituents. We have watched them in their march to grab as much power as they can from We the People all the while lining their pockets with the fruits of our labor.
I say Enough is Enough already because the time has come for us to put into power a 3rd Party that will insure our constitutional rights and put an end to the stalemate we have been seeing in our nations capitol.
The time has come and is long overdo for the Tea Party to pull itself up by its Grass Roots and become a real contender in our nations political arena.
It’s time for Change America
VOTE IN THE NOVEMBER MID-TERM ELECTIONS AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE
President Obama began his three-day West Coast fundraising tour in Seattle with an admission that mushrooming global crises were adding anxiety to an American public already concerned about the economy.
“Part of people’s concern is just the sense that around the world the old order isn’t holding and we’re not quite yet where we need to be based on the new order,” said Obama, who later cautioned against letting those anxieties lead to cynicism and a lack of interest in democracy.
“People who really need government to work for them on their behalf, they withdraw, they opt out, and that makes government even more dysfunctional,” he said.
The president already has taken heat for making time for a burger stop and fundraisers last week shortly after Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was downed over Ukraine, killing hundreds. While the president repeatedly has addressed the tragedy in public, he also spent his Sunday playing golf at Fort Belvoir.
Later Tuesday, Obama will attend a Democratic Party fundraiser in Seattle, before catching Air Force One to San Francisco. He’ll end the three-day swing later this week in Los Angeles.
The White House has defended the president’s busy political schedule, which the president’s team largely has not changed in response to world events.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters on Monday, in response to questions about the president’s fundraising.
Asked about Obama’s fundraising last week in New York, Earnest said it was not a mistake and noted that the president made calls to the leaders of Ukraine and Malaysia amid the Flight 17 tragedy.
“When the president travels, he travels with an array of staff and advisers and communications equipment that allows him to do his job from wherever he happens to be,” Earnest said. “And if it becomes clear that there’s a need for him to come back to the White House in order to fulfill those functions, then we’ll make a change in his schedule. Right now, it’s not apparent that that’s the case.”
But Republican critics have questioned the president’s stay-the-course strategy on fundraisers.
In response to the White House defense of its own itinerary, the Republican National Committee tweeted: “The White House still feels Obama’s choice of burgers & fundraisers over responding to crises was the right one.”
Aside from the Malaysia Airlines tragedy and deliberations over how to respond to the suspected Russian connection, the administration continues to grapple with the surge of illegal immigrant minors along the U.S.-Texas border, and with the mounting death toll in the war between Israelis and Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
After Texas Gov. Rick Perry announced the deployment of National Guard personnel to the border in his state to deal with the surge, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, ribbed the president for his schedule.
“The fact is if the president weren’t so busy playing golf or pool, he would know the integration has been happening,” Gohmert told Fox News, referring to collaboration along the border between various Border Patrol and security officials.
Obama did abandon one idea for the trip, however. The White House had been in touch with late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel about a presidential appearance on his show during the stop in Los Angeles, but is not going forward.
“We elected not to do it this time, but hope we can arrange to do it in the near future,” a White House official said.
But on the fundraising trail, Obama remains a potent draw among the Democratic Party’s wealthy donors, who pay up to $32,400 to be in intimate settings with the president.
The fundraising highlight of the trip will be a Democratic National Committee event Wednesday at the Beverly Hills home of Shonda Rhimes, the producer of the ABC series “Scandal,” a drama set in modern-day Washington. Kerry Washington, who plays the lead role in the show, is among the hosts.
So far this 2013-14 election cycle, Obama has attended 73 fundraising events for Democratic Party groups. During the 2009-10 midterm cycle, when Republicans won control of the House, Obama attended 98 fundraisers, according to CBS News White House reporter Mark Knoller, who keeps detailed records of presidential travels and events.
Obama has outpaced his predecessor in fundraising, having attended 395 fundraisers during his presidency as of this week. According to Knoller’s statistics, then-President George W. Bush had attended 217 at the same point in his second term.
The 395 is more than Bush attended during his entire presidency.
Obama has devoted much of his effort to the Democratic National Committee, which last month raised $9 million and cut its debt to $3 million from a one-time high of $23 million. Obama also will raise money for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the political arm of the party that assists Democratic House incumbents and candidates.
While the House is expected to remain in Republican hands after the election, the fate of the Democratic-controlled Senate is much more in question, raising the stakes for fundraising.
Obama has at least one bit of policy-driven business set aside for the trip. In Los Angeles on Thursday he plans to go to a community college to draw attention to jobs training, particularly for work requiring specialized skills, like health care.
