Decoration Day or Memorial Day

May 27, 2017

On May 5th 1868, General John A. Logan declared that May 30th would be known as Decoration Day Nation wide, that date was chosen because it held no significance as an anniversary of any past battle in America.

This day is set aside for the men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice by giving their all, its also to honor those who are currently serving and for those who have served in the military for this nation willing and for those who were drafted as well.

We have places in this country who are attempting to whitewash history by removing monuments to soldiers and generals and important figures from the civil war. It is because of the civil war that we have Decoration Day/Memorial Day, the civil war was not fought over slavery but it eventually has been taught that is all it was about.

Prior to the start of the civil war, the federal government was taxing raw products and finished products that came from the southern states. The representatives in the house and in the senate told the federal government that if the excess taxation did not stop that they would leave the union and form their on nation. About that time the southern states were also looking at freeing all slaves and giving each male slave a 1/4 or 1/2 acre for each year they lived on a plantation.

In President Lincoln’s own words “we can not let the southern states leave for they fund the federal government” The federal government struck first by invading the southern states to prevent succession of the southern states.

President Lincoln issued the Emancepation Proclamation, on January 1st 1863, freeing all slaves, there was caveat to his speech, it only affected the slaves in the southern states while the civil war was going on. It wasn’t until 4 years later that the slaves in the northern states and southern states that was loyal to the union were freed.

Prior to the civil war as I had stated the southern states were looking into freeing the slaves the same at Russia had in 1859. Prior to Lincoln starting the war with a surprise attack on Charleston harbor on April 8th 1861, to occupy Fort Sumter which at that time was a federal tax collection fort. The southern states were starting the process of freeing the slaves. The occupation of Fort Sumter by the federal government military and navy altered that course of action by the southern states.

After the civil war had ended and congress initiated the process of reconstruction which in turn allowed for people from the northern states to move to the southern states became known as carpet baggers. It as during the era of reconstruction that majority of the representatives from the southern states were former slaves that were freed by Lincoln’s emancipation proclamation. The southern Democratic Party had created its response to the reconstruction time period which became known as the KKK party.

The klan was created as a response to the northern states using reconstruction era to have blacks in congress. The klan terroized and even killed blacks to get their point across. Up until the civil rights bill as passed by congress in the 1960’s, there was 7 other attempts to pass civil rights legislation by congress but the democrats in congress blocked them all.

It as the democrats that created the Jim Crow laws, the separate but equal education system, the whites only and blacks only laws. It was the democrats in power in the southern states that used the police, the police dogs, water cannons, and the states national guards against the civil rights marchers in the late 1950’s and the early 1960’s.

The civil rights bill that was voted on in the house in 1964 was filibustered by Al Gore Sr in the senate until another senator from Minnesota rewrote several sections that dealt with voting rights, the original version ould enshrine in the constitution the right to vote regardless color, religion, or gender, the rewritten version had it so that the senate had to revote on the voting rights act every so often, that is when enough democrats in the senate agreed to vote to pass the civil rights bill so the president could sign it into law.

What is now known as Memorial Day is because of the civil war, there were to many men killed during the civil war and to think we have people who have been elected feel it’s their right to remove monuments and to erase history because a few are offended by our nations past. To erase our past means that we as a nation are bound to repeat history. We need to embrace our past so that we do not repeat our past, but we are on the verge of repeating our past because a single political party prefers to keep groups of people as 2nd class citizens so that they will keep voting for them.

The civil war was not fought to keep a political party in power but to keep a young nation as a whole, every single soldier who has given their all in battle or in defense of this nation should be honored as well as those who are currently serving in the military and those who served and those who have retired from the military for they truly know what sacrifice truly means.

The song “If Your Reading This” best fits the term “giving it all”
It as first sung by Tim McGraw in 2007

If You’re Reading This
Tim McGraw
Lyrics
If you’re reading this
My Mommas sittin there
Looks like I only got a one way ticket over here
Sure wish I
Could give you one more kiss
And war was just a game we played when we were kids
I’m laying down my gun
I’m hanging up boots
I’m up here with God and we’re both watching over you
So lay me down
In that open field out on the edge of town
And know my soul
Is where my momma always prayed
That it would go
And if you’re reading this
I’m already home
If you’re reading this
Half way around the world
I won’t be there
To see the birth of our little girl
I hope she looks like you
I hope she fights like me
Stand up for the innocent and weak
I’m laying down my gun
I’m hanging up boots
Tell dad I don’t regret that I followed in his shoes
So lay me down
In that open field out on the edge of town
And know my soul
Is where my momma always prayed
That it would go
And if you’re reading this
I’m already home
If you’re reading this
There’s going to come a day
When you’ll move on
And find some one else
And that’s OK
Just remember this
I’m in a better place
Where soldiers live in peace
And angels sing amazing grace
So lay me down
In that open field out on the edge of town
And know my soul
Is where my momma always prayed
That it would go
And if you’re reading this
I’m already home

There is another song that I will post the lyrics to as well for the soldiers who are still living, that fits them.

It’s sung by Toby Keith the title is American Soldier

Lyrics
I’m just trying to be a father,
Raise a daughter and a son,
Be a lover to their mother,
Everything to everyone.
Up and at ’em bright and early,
I’m all business in my suit,
Yeah, I’m dressed up for success,
From my head down to my boots.
I don’t do it for money
There’s bills that I can’t pay.
I don’t do it for the glory,
I just do it anyway.
Providing for our future’s my responsibility,
Yeah I’m real good under pressure,
Being all that I can be.
And I can’t call in sick on Mondays
When the weekends been too strong,
I just work straight through the holidays,
And sometimes all night long.
You can bet that I stand ready
When the wolf growls at the door,
Hey, I’m solid, hey I’m steady,
Hey I’m true down to the core.
And I will always do my duty,
No matter what the price,
I’ve counted up the cost,
I know the sacrifice.
Oh, and I don’t want to die for you,
But if dyin’s asked of me,
I’ll bear that cross with honor,
‘Cause freedom don’t come free.
I’m an American soldier, an American,
Beside my brothers and my sisters
I will proudly take a stand,
When liberty’s in jeopardy
I will always do what’s right,
I’m out here on the front lines,
So you can sleep in peace tonight.
American soldier, I’m an American,
American soldier,
An American

I found the soldiers Creed and its a good one and i hope that I am not offending anyone by just changing one word in the creed for it is meant to honor all soldiers.

A Soldiers Creed

I am an American Soldier.
I am a member of the United States Military – a protector of the greatest nation on earth.
Because I am proud of the uniform I wear, I will always act in ways creditable to the military service and the nation it is sworn to guard.
I am proud of my own organization. I will do all I can to make it the finest Military.
I will be loyal to those under whom I serve. I will do my full part to carry out orders and instructions given to me or my unit.
As a soldier, I realize that I am a member of a time-honored profession—that I am doing my share to keep alive the principles of freedom for which my country stands.
No matter what the situation I am in, I will never do anything, for pleasure, profit, or personal safety, which will disgrace my uniform, my unit, or my country.
I will use every means I have, even beyond the line of duty, to restrain my comrades from actions disgraceful to themselves and to the uniform.
I am proud of my country and its flag.
I will try to make the people of this nation proud of the service I represent, for I am an American Soldier.

Thank you for taking the time to read my view on Decoration Day/Memorial Day,
A ordinary mans view.

Rights Versus Priveleges

May 21, 2017

I’ve decided to comment on everything that has been going on since the election back in November of 2016.

I find it funny that people who disagree with the election results now literally border on the edge of insanity. Never have I seen people go to the extreme that I have seen occur both in the print media and legacy tv news.

You have college students who never before participated in a presidential election and are literally emotionally upset that their candidate after listening to the media tell them 24/7 every day that their candidate will in in a landslide, it didn’t happen. They are taking to social media threatening to kill themselves if election results are not overturned in their favor.

Then you have both the print media and their owners and the legacy tv talking heads and the class of politicians who deem themselves to be our betters, bordering on treason with what they are doing as well.

Never before has an elected president been attacked and viciously harassed and interfered with in establishing his administration and setting his agenda as this president has been, did I vote for him no I didn’t, but I am accepting the election results.

What’s rights does a person have either private or public, are not priveleges but there are a few who see those rights as their privelegs.

Rights:
Freedom of speech: there are some limits on free speech.

Freedom to travel: you are only limited by your desire and imagination.

Freedom of association: because of the PC culture, you are attacked if you think differently than liberals and progressives.

Freedom to live where you want: this goes with freedom to travel, but there are those who feel its their right to enforce restrictions against those who disagree with them.

Freedom to drive: this is a freedom but the license to drive is a privilege only its not a right.

Back in 2015 the print media and the legacy tv news felt it was their right and privilege to literally destroy an announced candidate for president they disagreed with, so they pulled out all the stops that would have caved a pedigree GOP candidate for president or any other elected office.

They pulled out of storage a video of the candidate saying what he could do if he wanted to because he was a star, did he say he did those things, no he only spoke of an action not taken. Was it crude, yes it was but goes no where near Anthony Weiner did with a teenage girl.

Since Trump was sworn in as President there has been a constant 24/7 daily barrage by both the print media and the legacy tv news to try and take down President Trump, this a first that the 4th estate has been so open in its hatred of a President. But then again responsible journalism was tossed out during the 1990’s and its never been seen again.

What the media in general is now doing actually borders on treason with the constant printing and revealing confidential meetings between the president and the foreign dignitaries visiting the White House. This very same media in general gave both Obama and Hillary a complete pass on whatever they did legally or illegally.

The media in general has given up all pretense on being balanced in its delivering of the news, both the writers and the talking heads on tv show their utter disdain for President Trump in their words and actions. President Trump calls them fake news and it does fit the bill to a T. The news in general they give rarely is based on truth but their privately held beliefs.

Trump could if he wanted to due to the treason and espionage act, could shut down the tv broadcasters nationwide. Because they have leaked information that they shouldn’t have in the first place. They are working hand in hand with political appointees and elected democrats and rhinos in taking down a sitting president by any means even a coup.

It’s time for the average American citizen to understand that the Founding Fathers wanted a citizen congress and the president represent the nation as its sole leader. We have now what I call a political class that see them as being privileged and are better than the average citizen. They see themselves as being above the law, they see their constituents as being stupid animals that need to be told how to think.

The latest example is shoddy journalism is the recent firing of former FBI chief Comey, did President Trump stop any investigation no he hasn’t he is just replacing a man who helped Obama thwart any investigation into actions by Obama or Hillary.

The head of the FBI serves at the pleasure of the President, for the FBI is an administration agency, its not operated by congress or by the Supreme Court.

I watched actual tv for the first time since 2002, I lasted 30 minutes when I realized that, I have not missed out on anything at all. When I use to watch tv and the news, I became despondent on this nations future, just from watching the tv news.

By not watching the news or listening to the radio much, I have a better view and outloook for this nation. I have a right to my views and outlook but according to the talking heads and the printed media, my rights are archaic and I should be killed off because of them.

Bedloe’s Island

February 1, 2017

The progressive democrats and the main stream media are once again trying to revise history of this nation, this time they are trying to revise what the statue of Lady Liberty actually stands for. Below will be a history lesson to counter the lies the media and the progressive democrats are trying to revise.

The work started on the statue in 1870 where the french govt and the french people would fund the building of the statue while the United States at that time would fund and build the pedestal that Lady Liberty would be placed upon.

The french artist Bartholdi, had specifically chosen what everything on lady liberty was to represent. The crown and the seven spires or rays represented the sun, the seven seas, and the seven continents, to enlighten the world in addition to the torch.

The broken chains at the feet of lady liberty represents freedom and democracy, the tablet in her one arm and hand represent the book evoking the law and the year of the United States independence. The torch symbolizes freedom, hope and the future. The torch was meant to imply that at night, lady liberty’s light would guide those seeking freedom at night.

The poem that senator schummer and Nancy pelosi were repeating and it didnt help with the ignorance of chuck todd asking pelosi what the Statue of Liberty pin is for and its a total lie.

Emma Lazarus was a refugee advocate in the late 1800’s and was asked in 1883 to write a poem that would be auctioned off to raise funds for the pedestal to be built to hold lady liberty. The poem is in no way connected to the Statue of Liberty it was cast in bronze and sits in the main room of the pedestal foundation, by no means has it ever been part of Lady Liberty which was given as a gift from France as a gift to signify an alliance and friendship between the two countries. Her poem was cast in bronze in 1903 and placed in the main room of the pedestal, 17 years after the statue had been fully erected and dedicated.

On October 28th, 1886 lady liberty had been fully reassembled on the pedestal on bedloe’s island which was then renamed Liberty Island in 1956 and 1.1 miles separate liberty island and Ellis island.

Its a total sham what the progressive democrats are doing in trying to revise history and the true meaning of Lady Liberty.

1945

November 11, 2016

During President Truman’s presidency he pushed for his own version of universal health care but the AMA called in socialized medicine it was quickly defeated. Congress in 1945 passed the McCarran-Ferguson Act, which gave the states the right to regulate the health insurance industry in their respective states.

That act allowed the states to establish pre-existing exclusion time lines, it also allowed the states to pick and choose what health insurance companies were allowed to sell health insurance within state boundaries. This act basically established winners and losers in the health insurance industry. Currently health insurance companies are prohibited from selling cross state lines, the walls were established in 1945. The democrats have been trying for single payer health care since President Truman, every act passed by congress when controlled by the Democratic Party has been focused on one goal aka single payer.

Our nation is to diverse and to big for single payer health insurance, because of the larger cities such as New York City and Los Angeles, would use a larger share of a single payer government controlled budget. Health insurance has always been a private industry product purchased by consumers, or the consumers opt to pay the doctors directly for a higher discount.

I experienced direct payments to doctors offices for a few years and noticed that I received a discount due to paying in cash where the doctors billing office had no paperwork to fill out for the insurance company. The McCarran-Ferguson act in effect established monopolies within each state.

The 1974 act and then the 1996 act in an inverse way helped insurance costs to skyrocket, its congress is why the cost of insurance has been going up by preventing the free market to decide the winners and losers or who merges with who. Its time to let the consumers to decide instead of trying to establish single payer, costs would decline if all 1500 insurance companies were allowed to compete in the free market.

Another way to dramatically reduce costs is to limit what lawyers can be paid in malpractice court cases. Costs vary for doctors and nurses depending on their specialty. For an OB/GYN the Premium could be as high as 110,000 a year or more depending on the state they practice in.

By congressional act all health insurance companies have to carry a reserve to pay for claims and malpractice cases. some insurance companies use the interest off the reserves to pay for other items.

I’m hoping that Trump and congress pass a simple bill allowing all health insurance companies to compete in all 50 states, instead currently each state allows only a few insurance companies to operate within state boundaries, which actually artificially raises costs of premiums and cost of health care with in each state.

This was all done on purpose to eventually allow the democrats to gt single payer for the country, Single Payer nearly became an actual reality had hillary been elected, because that would have been the logical step in order to save the ACA aka obamacare. Obamacare was an illegal law to begin with since it originated in the senate instead of the house.

Harry Reid stripped the original written bill that was in the (HR3962), the affordable healthcare act as it was originally written was stripped of its original bill and became the patient protection and affordable care act. This was an illegal bill because it was a spending bill and all spending bills must originate in the house.

Because Scott Walker had been elected to replace ted kennedy, the democratic party no longer had 60 votes to stop a filibuster, so they used a process called reconciliation that’s used for budget bills only. both of the steps are illegal under the Constitution.

It’s been an illegal law because obama has been illegally funding thru other agencies since congress has refused to fund it. Obama has directed the secretary of the Health and Human Services agency to take the premiums paid and redirect the payments to the health insurance companies so that they do not leave the markets.

The health insurance companies are leaving the markets in each state because the age group they were promised that would purchase insurance are opting to pay the penalty and pay cash directly to their doctors. The insurance companies are experiencing huge losses because the healthy people are opting to pay the no insurance penalty.

If congress passes the bill to allow all 1500 health insurance companies to compete nationwide, they will also allow people to chose cafeteria style health insurance rather than uniform plans that are preset. honestly being as old as I am why do I need to have OB/GYN coverage, or pediatric coverage.

If we get cafeteria style health care plans, I know exactly how mine would be:
major medical
prescription coverage
yearly preventive heath care doctors visits
mental health
dental
eye coverage.
my coverage for this would be 175 a month and 15 for copays

My current coverage is for:
29 items relating to health care for women from the age 13 to 99
34 items relating to health care for children
22 items relating to male health care
no major medical – was told it didn’t conform to the ACA
eye care coverage
prescription coverage
total cost is 980 a month for the premium
co-pays 30 for doctors visits and prescriptions

As I read more, I will re-edit this post……

California

May 1, 2016

I am not surprised that the media is all agog in regards to the illegals rioting in Costa Mesa all because Donald Trump went to speak and exercise his right to freedom of speech.  Because the illegals disagree with his speeches they have the right to riot and destroy public and private property in Costa Mesa.

Freedom of speech is for everyone as long as you are a progressive, liberal, democrat, socialist, and or illegals.  If you are a conservative in anyway form or fashion your right of free speech or the right to gather or assemble for meetings and or conventions of any kind that is never to be tolerated.  Proof is in the media and they are glorifying the rioting and blaming trump for his speeches, for the cause of the riots.

If a republican or conservative disagrees with a democrat, liberal and or progressive they are considered to racist, homophobic, religion hating, and gender hating.  If a conservative disagrees with Obama regarding his politics that person is considered 100% racist.

I do not feel that a person breaking our nations laws by entering this nation illegally should not be rewarded and we need to get rid of the notion that if you are an illegal and your baby is born an American citizen, that was already decided by the Supreme Court that citizenship is passed onto your children only if one or both parents are already citizens of the United States.

The illegals should be arrested for making threats against legal citizens and legal immigrants who wish to have legal political rallies that the illegals disagree with so they have threatened to use violent demonstrations and rioting to disrupt all and any rallies for Donald Trump.  What’s fascinating is you do not see republican or conservative to even libertarians using violence at any Hillary or Bernie political rallies.

Hillary and Bernie are both accomplices to those who are using violence and riots because they disagree with what Trump is saying in his political speeches.  So if you disagree with Trump it is okay to destroy both public and private property because you do not hear or see either Hillary or Bernie asking their followers to stop the rioting it’s more of a wink and nod to those who riot.

Just because Trump is making speeches that people disagree with that does not give them the right to riot in the first place.  Demonstrate peacefully to get your point across, is more effective than rioting, Dr. Martin Luther King had the right approach. Demonstrate peacefully and let the other side commit the violence, during the civil rights marches you had the democrats fighting back with the police and national guard against peaceful demonstrators.  Dr. Martin Luther King had all peace marchers sign pledge cards not to respond with violence no matter what happens.

It’s time for those that are here illegally to go home demonstrate against their own governments, instead of demanding the right to vote and live in a country where they are living illegally.

E.E.O.C.

April 28, 2016

It is time for the EEOC to take the leap forward that the democrats have been complaining about for the past 100 years about equality in the work place.  It is time for the EEOC to do away with quotas in every way and form and function.

The EEOC can do something totally mind boggling that would make every liberal head spin by requiring all employers public and private by redoing the employment process that is currently used for one thing called quotas in the work place.

Its time to end the use of full names required on applications or resumes and require last names only.  It’s time to get rid of gender identity identification on applications.  It’s time to rid the application process of race related identification as well.

its time that applications should have at the top of every.  Application the following statement: The best qualified applicant will be selected for the job posted.

The application and resume should only have the following: first initial and last name only, instead of full name which will identify the applicants gender.

Remove the gender identity boxes

Remove race identifying on the application.

Remove age as well unless it is a job requirement of OSHA

Using the new system would require the employers to select which applicatants based on the qualifications in the resume and interview accordingly and have no preset notions of each applicant.

The New World AKA America

June 30, 2015

Before America became its own nation in its own right, slavery was brought to the new world by the following nations

Portuguese, Great Britain, French, Spanish and the Dutch Empire.  The first blacks came to America as indentured

servants,but soon all pretense was ended when those 5 nations had established outposts along the coast of the African

Continent. Those five nations started buying African slaves from local African leaders that had captured in raids from other

African tribes.  The local leaders saw that selling the slaves into slavery and taken away from the African continent was far

better than to outright kill the captured slaves.  Between 1607 and 1732 with the establishment of the 13 colonies so had

slavery been established by the 5 nations and until 1776 when the 13 colonies declared its independence as a new nation

slavery had been in America for 169 years.  Slavery existed legally in the states for another 85 years with the federal govt

turning a blind eye to it because the federal govt benefited from the sale of slaves in the south, even sold slaves in the

south on federal ships.

America had been founded on Judeo-Christain beliefs that concept today annoys every single liberal to their bones. The

Constitution includes a clause that has the liberals more upset than anything else, it prohibits the federal govt from creating

or establishing a national religion.  The fact that this nation was founded on judeo-christain beliefs means that we can learn

from our past and accept our past to become a better nation.  For the past fifty years liberals have been getting a free ride

when it comes to the past, it was conservatives that opposed slavery and they were concentrated for the most part in the

northern states, where as the liberals were the ones who held onto the notion that slavery was legally and morally accepted

in the world at that time, but there was a growing movement to free all slaves in 1860, but before that had happened Lincoln

invaded confederate states to keep them from leaving the union because it was the money from the southern states that

paid to keep the federal govt in business. ( The above information can be found but it does take time because the liberals hate the truth so they bury it deep, very deep. )

Today’s culture is to rewrite history so that the good history is removed and only the bad and horrendous are only taught

because this country is not exceptional because of how the nation was founded.  The liberals do not want the education of

the country has actually inspired other nations to expand the freedoms that they did not have prior to the formation of this

nation.  The founding Fathers decided it was the people who granted the govt. the powers to govern not the other way

around where the govt. ruled by decree and decided what rights the people were allowed.  In 1788 George Washington ran

for President against John Adams, Washington received the most electoral college votes, John Adams became George

Washington’s Vice President  under the rules of election in the constitution. George Washington served two terms until 1797

when John Adams was elected the 2nd President of the United States and the first ever peaceful hand over of power to

govern a nation.

This nation has given more opportunities to minorities to succeed than any other nation before, most of our amendments to

the constitution has some basis of the ten commandments in them, that is another reason why the democrats and the

liberals hate the country and the constitution.

I will be posting more to this as I read more about the history on this nation, that is the truth and not rewritten history  to

reflect how bad this nation is according to everything obama and the democrats and the tv media proclaims it to be.
