UNITED STATES AND ITS LOSS OF FREEDOM

Image

Today our freedom is dissolving away as quickly as a block of ice does on a hot day.  When President Obama took office in 2009 our nation’s index was listed as 6th. Our country is the only nation to have recorded a loss for seven years straight. Would you fight to regain the freedom lost like those in the Ukraine or shed your blood like them or as our forefathers did?

WHAT IS MEANT BY ECONOMIC FREEDOM INDEX?

We suffered a loss in property rights, freedom from corruption, and control of government spending. The areas of finance and healthy care have eroded our freedom. We didn’t vote on Obama Care, but the Democrats pushed through this national health care system without even reading the blasted thing. Would it become the law of the land if we had the opportunity to read it and vote on it? I don’t know, but I think anything affecting us to the extent this law does should have been voted on. Also, the growth of the government and increased cronyisms has undermined the rule of the law and the perception of fairness.

Between 2001 and 2013 federal outlays jumped from $1.86 trillion to $3.80 trillion an increase of 104% or about 8% per year.

Federal Government spends now 23% of GDP.

As the government increases in size so does dependency on the government increase. Today, there are 21.8% dependent on the government according to the Heritage Foundation.

Ronald Regan stated, “There is a threat posed to human freedom by the enormous power of the modern state,” he said in 1982. “History teaches the dangers of government that overreaches: political control taking precedence over free economic growth, secret police, mindless bureaucracy, all combining to stifle individual excellence and personal.”

Because of the Affordable Care Act, the government is going to reduce Medicare Advantage in 2015 in which millions of the aged belong to. According to Avalere Health, a Washington-based health policy firm estimates that at least 13% of the plans will be eliminated as a result of the cuts.

Prior to this, Obama stole $716 billion from Medicare. This is the reason for the so called Death Panel. Since the end of 2013, no one over the age of 75 and who is dependent on Medicare will be able to receive stint surgeries or bypass surgeries. Besides, if an emergency arises after hospital hours and on the weekend and the board can’t be notified; those people in this age bracket will either suffer or die before consent is obtained.

BIG UNIONS

Here are some other contributing factors to the erosion of our freedom.  Believe it or not, China’s unions are strong and so is Russia’s union siding with the government whenever its workers face a conflict. One example of unions in our country at work is the workers of the Volkswagen company denied UAW access into their company. Yet, the UAW because it was refused into a foreign, owned automobile manufacturing company is taking Volkswagon to court. I believe unions undermine pride in one’s work-the backbone of this country. The few times I worked with union laborers, I noticed a pathetic lack of care. To me their attitude consisted of “I can’t be fired.” Consequently, everyone who worked with them and received their slovenly work suffered. They undermine freedom in our country of the american worker.

Today, the workers in Detroit who made large sums of money suffer from not having a paycheck. Whereas, the workers in Mexico reap the benefit and so does the company, A win-win for both the employee and the employer.  Long ago, my dad spoke against unions and stated they had seen their day and served their purpose. I agree with him.

ENVIRONMENTALISTS

Have also played a role in the decrease of our freedom. Today, farmers no longer can grow food because of their land becoming zoned as an environmental free zone. The rise of beef and food products are the results of environmentalists.  Our taxes on gas are supposed to help with green energy. Baa humbug! Osama’s attempt to fund green energy is a wash. Besides this China which is the world’s greatest contributor to ozone pollution displays no desire to slow down.

On top of this semi truckers are facing and the small companies are facing great expenses to meet the demands of the federal government.

To me, this does not sound like a democratic country. A government with all its regulations and laws squeaks and stinks like it is a Socialistic company.  

Here is the list of countries that have a freer Freedom index than we do.

The Most Free

1. Hong Kong
2. Singapore
3. Australia
4. Switzerland
5. New Zealand
6. Canada
7. Chile
8. Mauritius
9. Ireland

10. Denmark

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/01/14/u-s-fails-to-crack-annual-top-10-list-of-economically-free-countries/ 

Estonia is No. 11, just ahead of the United States, and Bahrain is No. 13, just behind us. (Bahrain’s relatively high rank among the 178 nations in the Index reinforces that it measures economic freedom.)

The problem I see with all of this is none one of us have ever stood up and said, “Enough!” We’ve allowed for public officials to yap away and about their indignation of what Obama or the democrats have done, but no action has occurred. There’s an old clique, “Birds of a feather fly together.

Can we take America back out of the hands of people with either evil intent or desire to pad their pockets as our nations falters? Is it too late? I don’t know? What do you think?

Please remember God is in control. We can pray for this country to return to the land our forefathers envisioned and not the Socialistic country so many politicians strive to mold our country into becoming. Who is greater? God is.

Remember Jesus saves and because He died on the cross, we have salvation. This is all of us. No sin is greater than the other one. He died and rose again. He lives and wishes to take an active role in our lives. Remember John 3:16.

God Bless you all. sle

Barack Obama – Lies Given to Americans Out Of Over 500+ Fibs & Growing

Image

 

For me, I don’t know about you, I’m deeply distressed over the condition of our government and where my country is headed. I watch my countrymen demonstrate yet, some of them are like sheep lead astray marching to the slaughter. To date, Obama has lied to the Americans 537 times. I’m sure at the State of the Union Address, lies are going to fall out of his deceiving mouth. I’ve come to believe this man is nothing but a pathological liar.  I listed only a some of the lies he’s told. I don’t believe any other president has ever told more lies even when compared to Nixon and Clinton. Each one of these lies could be become a blog.

I’d like to hear what you have to say and what you think. To me it doesn’t matter if you agree to disagree. 

 

Sixteen months ago, a murderous assault took place at U.S. diplomatic outposts in Benghazi, Libya, resulting in the savage slayings of a U.S. ambassador and three other heroic Americans. Numerous hearings and investigations have taken place. Yet the national new media has failed to continue to print and publicize about those guilty of this deception except for a few news networks. Those not afraid to tell the truth.

A stunning report from CNN claims that three dozen CIA personnel were on the ground the night of the attacks — several, the network says, were seriously injured. All were “secretly evacuated” and have been kept hidden from congressional investigators ever since.

Adding to the mystery is the fact that these personnel must submit to monthly polygraph tests. Why? To ensure they’re not talking to the media or members of Congress.

Such secrecy and intrigue demands answers — especially considering the fact that four Americans were slaughtered.

How many lies can one president tell and still retain any credibility? What you are about to see is absolutely astounding. It is a long list of important promises that Barack Obama has broken since he has been president. There is not enough space in this little blot to cover them all. Here are a some of the lies, he’s told.

If he had only told a few lies, perhaps the American people would be willing to overlook that. After all, pretty much all of our politicians our liars. Unfortunately, many of the lies that Obama has told appear to have been quite cold-hearted in nature. For example, Barack Obama repeatedly made the promise that “you will be able to keep your health care plan <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qpa-5JdCnmo&gt;” under Obamacare. But now we are learning that he knew that this was a lie all along. Not only that, the Democrats in Congress knew that this was a lie all along too. In fact, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat, said the following <http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/11/17/Gillibrand-we-all-knew&gt; when she was asked about Obama’s promise to the American people recently: “He should’ve just been specific. No, we all knew.”

#1<http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2009/06/15/obama-if-you-like-your-doctor-you-can-keep-your-doctor/&gt;

“If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what.” Well , many of you realize this isn’t true especially if you are one of those who received a slip from your doctor telling you they could no longer care for you.

#2  <http://www.whitehouse.gov/the_press_office/TransparencyandOpenGovernment/&gt;

“My administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in government.” Didn’t he say transparency. His administration is the most tightly kept administration. He uses social media extensively. Of course these are lies.

#3<http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/remarks-president-after-meeting-with-senate-democrats&gt;

“We agree on reforms that will finally reduce the costs of health care. Families will save on their premiums…” Well my when did this happen? Maybe for those on Medicaid. 

#4 http://www.theatlantic.com/daily-dish/archive/2007/11/-the-fierce-urgency-of-now/223719/

I don’t want to pit Red America against Blue America. I want to be the president of the United States of America.” Oh my goodness when did this happen. This has not happened. He first blamed Bush for evreything going wrong in his government and now he blames the Republicans for everything gone wrong. The concept sounded great. He is not like Clinton who did cross the aisle from the Democrats to the Republicans. It is his will or none at all!

“We’ve got shovel-ready projects all across the country that governors and mayors are pleading to fund. And the minute we can get those investments to the state level, jobs are going to be created.” Oh my, when did this happen? Our unemployment is highest its been since the 80’s.

#6 <http://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/index.php?pid=85788&st=million&st1=homeowners&gt;

“And we will pursue the housing plan I’m outlining today. And through this plan, we will help between 7 and 9 million families restructure or refinance their mortgages so they can afford-avoid foreclosure.” Hmm, from what I know the middle class continues to be squeezed more and more. Pretty soon, there will be no more squeezing. The middle class is going to disappear. I dare say most of those folks who lost their homes never did get a sure foot and had to say goodbye their home.

#7 <http://www.nationalreview.com/article/360617/obamacare-snake-oil-charles-c-w-cooke&gt;

“I will sign a universal health-care bill into law by the end of my first term as president that will cover every American and cut the cost of a typical family’s premium by up to $2,500 a year.” All I can say is LIAR!

#8 <http://www.mediaite.com/online/look-at-all-the-pretty-things-the-democrats-promised-in-2008-and-failed-to-deliver/&gt;

“We reject the use of national security letters to spy on citizens who are not suspected of a crime.” To some people Mr. Edward Snowden is a traitor, but to others he is a hero. I feel he is a hero. The turn coast in this country lie in the Obama administration. The pass Secretary of State, “What difference does it make, Hillary Clinton who married to Willy- Bill Clinton experienced a difficult time keeping his pecker in his pants during his presidency. He brought dishonor to the position. Then there is Eric Holder, Attorney General. From all accounts, he needs to have his butt in jail. We have Kathleen Selegelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services. By all accounts her butt should be in jail for Contempt of Congress and lying to the American public. Last but not least our wonderful Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel who insists on not allowing our men to speak of God to own a Bible in their lockers. Yet, the military is allowing Muslims to have facial hairs and carry prayer beads and wear turbans.

“For people with insurance, the only impact of the health-care law is that their insurance is stronger, better, and more secure than it was before. Full stop. That’s it. They don’t have to worry about anything else.” You know what I have to say about this lie is Bull Crap.

#10 <http://dailycaller.com/2012/09/04/in-party-platform-democrats-soften-on-obamas-2007-promise-to-close-gitmo/&gt;

“We will close the detention camp in Guantanamo Bay, the location of so many of the worst constitutional abuses in recent years.” If I’m not mistaken we are fighting a war. All of those men unbeknownst to Obama are prisoners of war and should have been tried and convicted to face the firing squad. They are treated with kid gloves. For goodness sakes feed them pork seven days a week.

#11 <http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/obameter/promise/71/allow-imported-prescription-drugs/&gt;

“Allow Americans to buy their medicines from other developed countries if the drugs are safe and prices are lower outside the U.S.” According to the Prescription Drug Marketing Act of 1987, it is illegal for anyone other than the original manufacturer to bring prescription drugs into the country.

#12 <http://reason.com/blog/2012/08/23/look-at-all-the-civil-liberties-democrat&gt;

“We will revisit the Patriot Act and overturn constitutional executive decisions issued during the past eight years.” This is what the Patriot Act allows. Secret FBI and police searches of your home and office without your knowledge; secret government wiretaps on your phone, computer, and Internet activity; secret investigations of your bank records, credit cards, and other financial records; secret investigations of your library and book activities; secret examinations of your medical, travel and business records; freezing of funds and assets without prior notice or the right to appeal; the creation of secret “watch lists” that ban or restrict those named from air and other travel activities. 60 Minutes discovered that the list included the president of Bolivia, dead people, Sen. Ted Kennedy, Yusuf Islam (aka Cat Stevens), political activist Naomi Wolf and dozens of common American names like Robert Johnson and John Williams. This out-of-control list stands at 917,000 names as of March 1st, 2008 and, according to a report issued by the Inspector General of the Department of Justice, has grown by 20,000 a month. http://www.buddylogan.com/newlaws.html

Nov 10, 2013 – The Patriot Act would have been a nice reversal but, not only did that remain intact, Barack went and signed the National Defense Authorization

 

#13 <http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/obameter/promise/30/end-no-bid-contracts-above-25000/&gt;

“Will ensure that federal contracts over $25,000 are competitively bid.” Liar, liar pants on fire. Contracts are awarded to his cronies and to those who support him and paid large amounts of money towards his runs for president.

 

#14 <http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2012/03/will-democrats-strip-civil-liberties-from-their-2012-platform/254896/&gt;

“We reject sweeping claims of ‘inherent’ presidential power.” On a sunny day on a wednesday afternoon in Cleaveland, Ohio, the President announced his plans to act in total and utter disregard of the U.S. Constitution <http://www.heritage.org/initiatives/first-principles/primary-sources/the-constitution-of-the-us&gt; with his illegal appointment of Richard Cordray to serve as director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).

It’s an astonishingly reckless exercise of executive authority that Heritage’s Todd Gaziano described <http://blog.heritage.org/2012/01/04/a-tyrannical-abuse-of-power-obama-attempts-to-appoint-cordray-to-cfpb/&gt; as a “tyrannical abuse of power.” Never before in the 100-plus years of precedent on the recess appointment power has a President taken such an action while the Senate was still in session. Yet notwithstanding that fact, President Obama yesterday decided that he would be the first.

Here’s why the President finds himself so far outside of constitutional bounds. Under Article II, section 2, clause 2 of the Constitution <http://www.heritage.org/initiatives/first-principles/primary-sources/the-constitution-of-the-us&gt;, the President has the power to fill vacancies that may happen during Senate recesses, as Gaziano writes <http://blog.heritage.org/2012/01/04/a-tyrannical-abuse-of-power-obama-attempts-to-appoint-cordray-to-cfpb/&gt;. In this case, President Obama was seeking to fill the vacancy in the CFPB, a new agency that has come under significant criticism <http://blog.heritage.org/2011/12/06/consumers-need-protection-from-consumer-protection-bureau/&gt; given its unparalleled powers <http://blog.heritage.org/2011/06/02/new-evidence-reveals-vast-powers-of-consumer-finance-bureau&gt; to issue expansive regulations with virtually no accountability <https://www.askheritage.org/how-is-president-obama-abusing-presidential-power/&gt;

On November, 2013 with a sweep of a pen, Obama now has control of climate change policies. This does not reflect all the abuses Obama has committed by using executive order as a guise to gain power.

#15 <http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/obameter/promise/24/end-income-tax-for-seniors-making-less-than/&gt;

“Will eliminate all income taxation of seniors making less than $50,000 per year. This will eliminate taxes for 7 million seniors – saving them an average of $1,400 a year- and will also mean that 27 million seniors will not need to file an income tax return at all.”

As of  today senior citizens are double taxed because they paid taxes on their income the first time and now they continue to be taxed every year for the Social Security monies received.

“The Lone Survivor”-THE COURAGE OF OUR TROOPS AND OUR GOVERNMENT MISTREATMENT OF THEM

Image

I’ve never reviewed a movie before, but I have to discuss the movie “The Lone Survivor.” Before I do, I want to wish Michelle Obama, Happy Belated Birthday. I hope she enjoyed my birthday gift I gave her. The money spent to fly her on Air Force One, to and from Hawaii by herself, could have kept my husband and I comfortable for the remainder of our lives plus helped disabled vets or homeless vets. What do you think?

The number of interviews by Marcus Luttrell, who the movie is centered on in real life, by various newscasters peaked my interest. Probably one of the interviewees helped to seal my determination to see the movie after some of the comments he made such as the movie glorifies war and the military. Let me suggest to you, fella, to don your suit, hang them on the hanger plus your business shirt in the closet and place your fancy shoes in the closet floor in exchange for a uniform and combat boots. You need to go through basic training and then the stringent training to become a Seal. You’re going to find your butt right smack dab in Afghanistan for a tour. I bet you never open your big mouth about glorifying war and the military.

The movie displayed the agony of war and the comradeship of a small group of men, and their dedication to each other who against all odds fought off the Taliban. I closed my eyes when the lone survivor was captured for a few minutes by the Taliban, and they were going to behead him. I cried as each of the men in the group lost their brave lives. I cried when the Afghanistan leader of his village bravely defended the life of the American survivor, and they met again after Marcus’s recovery,

Talk about bravery and courage. One doesn’t realize the life our men lead in Afghanistan, and their zeal to fight for a people who want their country back. Also, my heart went out to this simple, village man; he is only a small representative of citizens of his country.

I am so proud of these young men and women who gave up their lives for a people who want freedom.

Another thing which stirs my wrath is the way this government treats its military under leadership of a president who reflects no tenderness to these brave souls. An example of this is a change in the way the disabled vets are going to collect their disability. According to the VA this change is going to make it simpler for them to expedite the needed disability. One drawback is each disabled must fill out the form on a computer. Now you and I know about government questionnaires. One example of this is our income tax forms we have to fill out. They take an accountant to fill our forms. Another thing is according to what I read all documents must be in order before the disability checks can begin. In other words, the vet can’t collect any disability checks from the time of injury. As now, the disabled vets receive a large sum once the disability is filed. This to me is so unfair. What are your thoughts on this?

Why is it these young and women do not receive the best care? The best treatment? Why is it the troops do not receive a hero’s welcome from the whole country?

On top of this the House passed a $1.1 trillion spending bill which cuts most veterans retirement benefits. The founder of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America call this a total betrayal of those who served in the military.

Nearly 50,000 Iraq and Afghanistan veterans were either homeless or in a federal program aimed at keeping them off the streets during 2013, almost triple the number in 2011, according to numbers reported by the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The number among this generation falling on hard times is rising sharply even as homelessness among veterans of all ages and conflicts has been on the decline, according to the VA.

Advocates for the homeless say many of the estimated 2.5 million Americans who served in the two wars went into combat zones on multiple deployments, something many veterans of previous conflicts never had to endure.

“They’re coming home to a bad economy. The country is different. Their families are different. They are different. Plus they are dealing with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and other issues around mental health,” says Gregory Scott, president of New Directions For Veterans, a non-profit assistance group in Los Angeles. So, what do you think is the cause of this?

<http://www.veteranstoday.com/2014/01/17/up-to-48000-afghan-iraq-vets-at-risk-for-homelessness/&gt;

 

My heart goes out to the disabled, and the men and women who served this country. THANK YOU for your courage. THANK YOU for wanting to make a difference. And SHAME on the Congress and the man sitting in the oval office who doesn’t care about his troops. My prayer for you Mr. Obama is for you realize Jesus is Lord. He knew you when you were in your mother’s womb. He called you by name. He wants to become your King.

GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS!

For those of you, who don’t know the Lord; let me tell you Jesus died on the cross so all can become saved. He rose again. He lives.  CONFESS your sins. REPENT.  BELIEVE He rose again. ACCEPT the gift. TELL someone you accepted Christ into you heart. ATTEND a church which believes the Bible from cover to cover.  John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have ever lasting life.

SEPTEMBER 11, 2001 NOW A CHANGED COUNTRY

Image

 

Today I watched the TV screen of the crash of the Twin Towers again. I heard the ringing of the bells and the symphonic music playing in the background while the names of the heroes and heroines who were murdered twelve years ago were read off by love ones as happens anuually since this tragedy.

Tears sped down my face like they did the eventful day.  I remember leaving USF numb, afraid and angry. I’m still angry. I stood in line to give blood in case someone might need my O positive gift. Fortunately, none did, but sadly, the incident instead of maiming people killed them all. 

Again, I wept when I observed bodies jumping out of the towering inferno, and I knew they were going to smash to the ground. My husband said, “Sharon, you’re getting old, and this is the reason why you‘re crying.” I say I weep for a nation for the innocence our nation lost. I weep for the changes in our country.

I morn for a once great country which stood proud now bought to its knees by its leaders. I weep because of a President who could not at first as a candidate pledge Allegiance to the Flag as a supposedly American. I sat in sorrow for the four Americans who lost their lives in Benghazi while their president, the next day went to Nevada to campaign  A Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton, who in her callousness let her so called friend be murdered while she did nothing. After all, “What Difference Does It Make?”  Now, she hopes Americans will vote her in as the next president of United States. 

I grieve for the invasion of my privacy all in the name of possible invasion.  Yet, we are allowing Muslims to flock in by the grooves. They have an agenda according to their book they call the Koran, and this is to kill the infidel. They murder anyone who will not denounce their faith and become Muslims. I realize in horror the ulterior motive of this group of people as they invade our court systems in an attempt to change into their law-The Sharia Law. Where they can murder their women if they are raped or stray.  If a woman walks down a sidewalk unaccompanied by a male relative or husband, they can lose their life at best receive a severe beating. Where beatings are acceptable. Where female circumcision is practiced with a knife and/or a razor blade while the family observes the procedure. So much for female sexual pleasure. Yet, these dogs can screw around to their hearts content and bring home sexual diseases.  Guess who is blamed for this?  Of course the woman. Where women have to cover up out on the street no matter the temperature. The children are taught to hate. So much for a religion that I know that says eye for an eye or worse.

The country I knew has convoluted. Now Tea Party Members and Christians are considered terrorists.  Anyone against the President and his cronies now find themselves under the watchful eye of Big Brother. Is this what the Romans faced so long ago? Did those patriots weep for their nation as they saw the writing on the wall? 

I stand in fear as I watch my nation implode from immorality and the once Christian church is cold at best lukewarm. I do not see us Christians taking stands against the millions if not billions of innocent babies who are aborted every year. Many of this is for convenience. I wonder why from the pulpits there isn’t a cry of indignation ringing out across our nation.  Isn’t this what happened in Nazi Germany?

I know I generally only blog twice a week, but I sat in silence with my heart breaking for my country, and the people in our once great country. I honor the fallen men and women who gave up their lives for their country. May my God give mercy to this country that I’d gladly give up my life to help make the wrong right and right now wrong.  

I’ll blog next on Sunday, September 15. Until then God Bless you all.  Tell me what you think or disagree with. I’d love to hear your opinions.

Where women have to cover up out on the street no matter the temperature. The children are taught to hate. So much for a religion that I know that says eye for an eye or worse.

The country I knew has convoluted. Now Tea Party Members and Christians are considered terrorists.  Anyone against the President and his cronies now find themselves under the watchful eye of Big Brother. Is this what the Romans faced so long ago? Did those patriots weep for their nation as they saw the writing on the wall? 

I stand in fear as I watch my nation implode from immorality and the once Christian church is cold at best lukewarm. I do not see us Christians taking stands against the millions if not billions of innocent babies who are aborted every year. Many of this is for convenience. I wonder why from the pulpits there isn’t a cry of indignation ringing out across our nation.  Isn’t this what happened in Nazi Germany?

I know I generally only blog twice a week, but I sat in silence with my heart breaking for my country, and the people in our once great country. I honor the fallen men and women who gave up their lives for their country. May my God give mercy to this country that I’d gladly give up my life to help make the wrong right and right now wrong.  

I’ll blog next on Sunday, September 15. Until then God Bless you all.  Tell me what you think or disagree with. I’d love to hear your opinions.
