In the matter of the abortion issue, liberty in the United States of America requires the People to recognize the difference between a chicken and an egg!
And, liberty requires all of the People to have respect for the Rights of others; liberty is unselfish!

The US could make hiring an illegal immigrant a capital offense for American employers; that would resolve the immigration problem. It is a solution to the problem that has been there all the time.

In lieu of making employment of illegal immigrants a capital crime, America needs to adopt a National Identification System that follows every citizen from birth to death, as other nations do, for distinguishing those in America who qualify for employment; other uses of a National ID System, other than employment, is the census, voter registration, and law enforcement. A National ID system is essential to any valid immigration reform legislation.

Also, it is not fair or just, to blame the sins of their fathers upon the children of illegal immigrants; that is the major problem now for a compassionate America, a melting-pot America.

Sen. Rubio and his John Birch Tea Party Republicans, add insult to injury, by Rubio’s brazen reference to the refusal of Democrats REPRESENTING THE INTERESTS OF THE PEOPLE, refusal to sacrifice Obamacare as ransom to prevent the Republican’s shut down of our government, as the basis for the same Republicans refusal to enact needed legislation on immigration; this is a brazen statement from extortionist Republicans that they believe the American People accept their concept of criminal government by gangsters. Huffington Post, 10/29/13

Republicans were responsible for inflicting the unthinkable on the American People by shutting down our sovereign government, something neither foreign terrorist nor Adolf Hitler was able to do; it’s inexcusable! That should be a wake-up call for Americans!

Something must be done for our American democratic Republic; we the American People must make some drastic changes in Constitution and our government, to encourage the best caliber of candidates to run for public office and we must make sure that all of our citizens vote. It’s obvious now, that radical Republicans seek the opposite, suppressing voters instead of making voting a requirement of citizenship.

The 5 John Birch Tea Party Republican Justices on the US Supreme Court, by their Citizens United Decision, have put American Government up for sale; candidates now buy office with huge Corporate campaign contributions, instead of serving interests of working Middle Class American majority voters.

Our Constitution must be changed to take Federal elections out of the hands of corrupt State governments. Electronic technology now is capable of allowing direct federal elections and permit a national referendum on major issues. It is up to WE THE PEOPLE, to take matters into our own hands and make these changes. This would appear to be a non-partisan issue, assuming Republicans understand today’s Republican Party is not the Grand Old Party of Abe Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt.

A most sensible expenditure of federal funding, would be the creation of a separate agency of federal government, similar to the courts or the SEC, that is non-partisan, that would allow every citizen in the United States to vote for all candidates for federal office and to make major legislative decisions in a national referendum. With our present electronic technology, it is possible to eliminate the middle men (Senators and House Representatives) in making monumental decisions like Obamacare and Immigration. We the People can make those decisions in a national referendum via federal electronic voting.

Our forefathers did an excellent job of providing We the People with the most democratic representative government at the time, 1787; communication then was limited to the Federal Post Office and travel was limited to boats and horses. In the Twenty First Century, Americans have the technology to make America even more democratic giving the People even greater control of their government and our forefathers would approve!

The American People deserve better government than government by extortion.

We Americans must take back our government.

Today I read, “Oklahoma Rep. Tom Cole, one of the key Republican negotiators on a possible budget deal, said Friday that he would support raising revenue and more of his colleagues need to be open to the idea.” Huffington Post, 10/26/13

Personally, I am a social liberal and a fiscal conservative but don’t confuse that with a Republican “conservative” who is a radical extremist and not conservative at all.  And, if my nation need more revenue I am willing to increase my taxes accordingly; I think that is the only intelligent thing to do, as long as it doesn’t adversely impact on our democratic Republic. 

Interestingly, it was the Republican “faux conservatives” like W. Bush who put their PNAC aggressive wars on the tab, and put the W. Bush Tax Cut for the Wealthy on the tab, and at the same time, raising the National Debt requiring raising of the National Debt Limit.  Americans are “dumbed-down”; they don’t even realize what happened to them.

In the past, like during WWII, it was the patriotic thing to do, to pay taxes supporting America and the war.  Republicans told us that the war with Iraq would be paid for with all the oil the USA would steal from Iraq; hey, what happened?  Now the John Birch Tea Bagger Republicans are blaming my President Obama for their own sins.

However, if America needs more revenue for the USA to meet commitments to the People for Social Security and Medicare that “THEY HAVE ALREADY PAID FOR”, I am willing to do my share by increasing revenue, as a fiscal conservative and a patriot. 

Oddly enough, I am retired, I receive both Medicare and Social Security benefits,  AND I actually pay Federal Income Tax on portions of my income from Social Security; is that bizarre or what?  Actually, I consider myself damn lucky to have an income in retirement large enough to pay income tax on my Social Security benefits and to have an income that is above poverty level.

When you consider that 46,247,000 Americans out of 308,456,000 Americans are living in poverty, I consider myself one of the luckiest guys in the world.  I’m reminded to, “Ask not what my country can do for me, but ask how much income tax my country needs from me.”

Frankly, I am ashamed that 15% of Americans, or one of every seven Americans are living below the poverty level which, for a person in my circumstance, would be having an annual income of less than $12,000; and, in the same breath, 1% of the America’s population has 35.4% of the nation’s wealth.  This to me is more of a problem for America than the US Government’s budget deficit or Debt.

Also, Republicans referring to one out of seven Americans that are poverty stricken as lazy and a ‘free loaders’, is part of the same problem. In my lifetime, as a lowly school teacher, I have met, known, worked with, and have had compassion for some of these fiscally poor Americans.  These poor Americans do not need Republican wrath, or anyone’s pity, they need a little love and a little help!

 If Americans are going to portend to be exceptional, and a beautiful people, we fortunate Americans are going to have to exhibit some love and compassion for our less fortunate poor neighbors.

If America is troubled and needs more revenue for being of assistance to less fortunate Americans, I am willing to sacrifice, pay more taxes, and do my part; it is the responsible thing to do, just like my being drafted to serve America in need or me going to the polls to vote, it’s the right thing to do.

However, I must say that I am sick and tired of these John Birch Tea Bagger Republicans bitching, moaning, shutting down my government, holding the government ransom, and calling my Black President ugly names.

 Well, I’ve moved again and have and have new phone number, so I get people calling the wrong number; yesterday when someone called and I answered, they said, “Is this Jesus?”

“Goodness, gracious no, I’m not Jesus,” I replied, “I’m not even Mexican!”

 “Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) alleged this weekend that a top House Republican leader told President Barack Obama, ‘I cannot even stand to look at you’ during negotiations over the government shutdown.”  Huffington Post, 10/23/13

There is a truism about political negotiations and that is, you have to be very careful about what you say about your opponent and how you treat your opponent, because once you reach a mutual agreement you are required to work with that opponent toward a common goal; and, that is what negotiations are all about. 

Unfortunately, Republicans have not learned how to work together for a common goal and Republicans are then not qualified to negotiate. 

Republicans are not negotiators they are extortionists.

Today, I could not help but comment on where higher education in America is going?  It’s going down the toilet!

We live in a stupid world of collegiate insanity!

American capitalism has subverted academia and bankrupt the pocketbooks of kids as well as their minds.

A college can now be replaced by google but even google has its commercial advertizements and charlatans writing its posts.

And, a teacher in America has become a dirty word to politicians, of all people; its historic, look how the politicians assassinated the greatest teachers of all time, Jesus and Socrates; nothing has changed!

I say this as an over-educated boob and a retired teacher!  RIP learning!

Human beings waste their life with hatred.  With every hate thought a person has, he/she drives another nail into the coffin of the good  life and happiness (contentment).
For once, close your eyes, take a deep breath, imagine your life without any thoughts of hatred in it.  Imagine a life with nothing to hate.  That life is there for you, if you simply refuse to hate and find compassion for the source of your hatred; you don’t have to agree with any thing or anybody to not hate them.
Hatred resolves nothing, it does not make an object of hatred disappear and that foments more hatred; hatred multiplies with time.
Love is the opposite of hatred; love is what makes life beautiful and makes you happy (content).
True happiness is achieved by eliminating hatred from your soul; do not confuse pleasure with happiness, they are very different. Happiness is being a peace with your world and experiencing contentment.
Wherein does any of your hatred lie; find the cause, judge its importance. If the source of hatred is color, analyze it; is the difference between black and white really important?  Why?  In the end, you do not have to agree, you just have to not hate!
How do you have compassion for your enemy? Pity your enemy for his misery suffered from hating you and how his misery is doubled by the absence of your hatred for him; your enemy suffers because he has not affected your life and happiness’ adversely.  A person who hates is an unhappy person per se.
A life void of hate and full of compassion is a beautiful life.
Strive for a beautiful life.

The John Birch Society opposes democracy and they are dedicated to eliminating it from America.

The John Birch Society Koch brothers financed the Tea Party; hence, the Tea Party is a front group for the John Birch Society.

Tea Party Republican Candidates to the House of Representatives were elected with campaign contributions of the Koch Brothers and bought their election with the help of the “Citizens United Decision” by the Supreme Court and the Court’s 5 John Birch Society Republican Justices.

The Tea Party now controls the Republican Party majority of the House; they sought to, and almost did, destroy the government of the United States of America.

To preserve American government and democracy, Republicans must get rid of Tea Party members of the House, or America must get rid of Republicans.

Republicans are no longer the GOP of Abe and Teddy.

God bless the United States of America.

The Tea Party in the USA is merely a front group for the John Birch Society and the Tea Party was funded by two of the individually, third richest men in the USA, the Koch brothers whose father, Fred, was a John Birch Society founder; the primary tenet of the John Birch Society is that America is not a democracy, America was never intended to be a democracy, and John Birch Society is dedicated to eliminating democracy from the United States of America.

The John Birch Society’s Tea Party took over the control of the Republican Party and, plan to take over the government of the United States of America; the Tea Party Republicans just shut down our American government, something that neither foreign terrorists, nor Hitler was never able to do.

The John Birch Society’s Tea Party has made the Republican Party the enemy of working Middle Class Americans, the People, and the United States of America; today’s Republican Party is no longer the Grand Old Party of Abe Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt.

Americans need to know who their enemy is?
