Gov. Rick Scott turned down Billions in Federal Aid: Now the Feds turned down Gov. Rick Scott.

Governor Rick Scott insisted that he would not take any of Washington’s tainted money. Some would say that its poetic justice, if it were not for all the constituents that are caught in the cross hairs. In politics they call it “collateral damage” or as Mitt Romney would call it “creative destruction.”

Remember the latest feel good phrase: “We want less government in our lives!” Well my friend, this is an example of less government and the scary part is that an entire state suffers because of the misguided allegiance to a party, rather than the people that elected now Governor Rick Scott.

Gov. Rick Scott did not hesitate to tell all that would listen, that he would reject any monies [$2 Billion to be exact] coming from Washington, regardless if it were needed [to build a high-speed rail line] or not and proceeded to do just that!

Gov. Scott proclaimed that he didn’t want Washington’s money and quickly took to the airways to let all his constituents know that he was standing firm in his belief, even though a rail system is desperately needed in Florida. There were many that cheered him on, “That’s right! We want less government in our lives!” Now, hold that thought…

Gov. Rick Scott also championed the cause to stop President Obama’s Federal Healthcare, which was subsequently approved by the Supreme Court, in part. Without consideration for the thousands of constituents that were currently without healthcare and no means to pay for private insurance. “That’s right! We want less government in our lives!” Now, hold that thought…

Gov. Rick Scott has also battled Washington by imposing new voting rules and thus throwing Florida in the spot light once again as the state that will more than likely create havoc before the election is over.

After all the disdain that Gov. Rick Scott has shown to Washington and the Federal Government, he suddenly has a change of heart [because Florida has suffered at the hands of hurricane Isaac] and decides that maybe having some of that “Federal Government Money” is not so bad after all. What happened to “We want less government in our lives?” Now, hold that thought…

So, what happens next! Gov. Scott proceeds to summons his aide to request funds from both FEMA and the White House. Did I read that right? FEMA, which is government and the White House, which is government has a request from Gov. Scott to help the State of Florida? That’s right! But wait a minute! I thought Gov. Scott and his constituents agreed to…No! Demand less government. Remember, “We want less government in our lives!” Now hold that thought…

FEMA and the White House apparently finally got the message that Gov. Rick Scott is serious about not taking money from the Federal Government and to help him stay true to his word, denied his request for Federal Aid and after all, “how would he be able to look his constituents in the eye after taking such a stance on “no government money will pass state line.” Now hold that thought…

You better wake up!!! Now hold that thought…

As Always….. Don’t Be Alarmed . . . Be Informed . . .

Mitt Romney: Courting the Hispanics . . . I Need You to Vote that “Government Stay Out of Your Life!”

Yes, Mitt Romney needs the Hispanic vote to seal the deal and become President! But, what about the day after, it’s called “voters remorse.” Obviously, the day after is one day to late.

Let’s take a moment to look at the day after. Mitt Romney is now president and you’re still the working poor. Will you still be part of his grand plan? I think not! Why? Now, you’re what he considers “those people,” a means to an end. Don’t blame Romney! He told you from the beginning what he was going to do.

Remember! Romney did say that “these are people who pay no income tax, but they are people “who are dependent upon government, [what is Romney saying? Don’t depend on me because I’m at the top of the spectrum in terms of government and remember! You voted for less government.] Who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to healthcare, to food, to housing, to you -name it.”

There should be big paper shredders at all the voting precincts for the people who will be voting for Mitt Romney and “

    they should be required to shred their food stamp cards, welfare cards, Medicaid and Medicare cards, their Social Security Cards, Disability Cards, School Vouchers and any other thing that they have on their person that connect them to the government, before they vote; to demonstrate a vote of confidence that they do indeed want the government out of their lives.”

Don’t forget to give them their “I want government out of my life sticker” along with their “I voted today sticker.” The Elections Department should have an additional form for the voters to sign stipulating that “they want government out of their lives!” to create a database of “no more government voters,” so when they show up at various governmental agencies [hospitals included] the entity can respectfully deny them service. Remember! “No More Government for you!”

If you feel that your life will be better off without any type of government assistance, regardless of the circumstance, then Mitt Romney is indeed the man for you and I guarantee you, Mitt Romney will be more than happy to give you the desires of your heart!

The IMF is Desperately Seeking a Replacement for the American Dollar: SDR’s Maybe Their Temporary Solution

The International Monetary Foundation (IMF) is growing increasing anxious over the continuous financial crisis that the US can’t seem to find a resolution too. In the beginning the IMF believed that the US had enough brilliant minds to find a workable plan to turn their debt crisis around, unfortunately, it’s becoming painfully clear that the US economy is in serious trouble.

America’s constant political bickering on National Television will ultimately be their downfall. Sam Houston the Emancipator once wrote:

“A nation divided against it self cannot stand!”

Does it feel like the US is tilted on an axel these days? Every time we take one positive step forward, we take two negative steps backwards, effectively wiping out any positive outcomes we made in the past.

Can ordinary everyday people understand or appreciates how close the US is to financial ruin? This is the first time in recent years that the House & Senate have been so ineffective for so long, making the US vulnerable in more ways than one. If you could only grasp what is being said, you would be up in arms with all your political figures. Do you consider yourself “collateral damage?”

Well, thanks to your politicians, that’s exactly what you are! If the dollar should collapse tomorrow, it is certain that they have a plan b? It’s also certain to suggest that you would be on your own, effectively, making you “collateral damage to whatever is yet to come. Do you like that position? If you answered No! Then do something about it. Call your prospective representatives’ and voice your opinion.

The IMF disclosed recently that Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) could help stabilize the global financial system – at the expense of the American dollar that is. Could this be the American dollar’s fall from grace? IMF appears adamant about replacing the American dollar and justifies its insistent of SDRs as a viable replacement that could help stabilize the global financial system and calm the other countries down.

According to CNN money, “SDRs represent potential claims on the currencies of IMF members. They were created by the IMF in 1969 and can be converted into whatever currency a borrower requires at exchange rates based on a weighted basket of international currencies. While they are not a tangible currency, some economists argue that SDRs could be used as a less volatile alternative to the U.S. dollar.”

Constitutional Reference for Today:

“It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.” — Daniel Webster

President Barack Obama’s Job-Creation Package failed short of the 60 votes needed.

Mervin Sealy from Hickory, North Carolina, takes part in a protest rally outside the Capitol Building in Washington

The $447 billion package of tax cuts and new spending failed by a vote of 50 to 48, short of the 60 votes it needed to advance in the 100-member Senate. Voting was expected to continue for several hours but would not affect the outcome.

Obama vows to break jobs plan into seperate bills after Senate setback

The Senate defeated President Barack Obama’s job-creation package on Tuesday in a sign that Washington is likely too fractured to take major steps to encourage hiring before the 2012 elections.

However, will the unemployed / under-employed, 99’ers and the remainder of the 17 million displaced for one reason or another continue too wait or can afford too wait until after the next election, or will a genuine movement with a people’s platform rise up within The Occupy Wall Street movement and force the hand of the government to perform the job they were elected to do or go home?

Someone on Capitol Hill needs to have enough backbone and intestinal fortitude to push through all the manure that the House and Senate keep trying to ram down the people’s throat.

Something that one of the participants from the movement said (she appeared to be middle age, possibly from the suburbs) was very telling of how most of the unemployed and under-employed feel. She stated that for the first time she was worried about the direction this country has taken and wondering how long can we survive in our present state. How Long? Not Long?

Remember the phrase:”A house divided against it self cannot stand.” If that is true, then what do you think about a country?

Even President Obama acknowledged that “Ultimately, the American people won’t take “no” for an answer. It’s time for Congress to meet their responsibility, put their party politics aside and take action on jobs right now.”

This country is at a crossroads. Which road will the House and Senate take?

Is it possible for a group of people to despise a man so much that they are willing to destroy the entire country in the process, even if it means going down in the process?

Let’s call it what it is! Hate!

Will a entire country of people stand idle on the sidelines and allow a small group of politicians to manipulate and use them as collateral damage while they watch the country slide into the sinking sand just to avenge what they perceive to be “A get him out at any cause mentality.” Were you consulted before they decided to play with your life or did the politicians think that they have the “power of attorney” to make life or death decisions on your behalf?

“So, what are you going to do? Stand Up {Mervin Sealy from Hickory, North Carolina, takes part in a protest rally outside the Capitol Building in Washington”}and be Heard or Become Collateral Damage? It’s Your Choice or is it?”

To: All the registered voters who actually vote. There is a lesson to be learned by the mess that United States finds itself in. The voters voiced their choice of representation by way of vote. When you vote for a particular candidate, you virtually give him or her the right to speak for you. When the votes are cast! It’s to late,then,too try to learn about the candidate you selected.

If you voted for a candidate based on popularity, because someone told you to vote for them or because of your dislike for the other candidate, without researching and seeking out as much information on that candidate as possible but got caught up in the hype. Shame on you!

At least now, hopefully, you can learn from past mistakes and make an informed choice based on your own research, so that, at the end of the day, you can truly say that “you have full confidence in the person you selected” and without trepidation can look at the man in the mirror and recognize the person staring back at you.

“Your Voice is really your Vote!” Don’t take it for granted! LooK at it this way! Will you work 40 hours a week and give your paycheck to a stranger just because they ask you for it? If that’s the case? Can I have it? See … what I mean!

Are the citizens of these United States reaching their boiling point?

As the country continues to take a free fall, using the middle class and the working poor as collateral damage, Wall Street continues to make billions off the backs of the unsuspecting owners of bad loans, home or otherwise, America finds itself at the crossroads of utter destruction.

How many more of the unemployed and the under-employed workers will have to lose their homes to foreclosure? How many more career employees will be displaced from their jobs within a couple years shy of their full retirement? How many more resumes will be submitted before a desperate worker receive just an invitation to be interviewed?

How long can 15 million workers remain unemployed without something catastrophe happening because they think that there is no hope for a job in the foreseeable future?

How long can a country run on auto-pilot before it tumbles and fall? Who are the people that are suppose to keep these United States on track, financially and otherwise? Why aren’t they held accountable for the mess that this country finds itself in?

The crime rate from state to state is at an all time high and climbing? Why are there more robberies in the broad daylight and suspects willing to shoot anyone that tries to stand between them and their ill-gotten loot? Why has crime increased 300 percent against churches and the elderly?

Why is it reported that things are improving, when you don’t know a single unemployed person who has been hired within the last six months? Why do you feel like screaming to the top of your lungs, when yet another politician tells you that “they’re working on a plan to put America back to work?”

How many more lies will be regurgitated over and over again until the public realize that they have been bamboozled? How much longer will the people remain calm before they take to the streets and demand accountability for this colossal nightmare that most American’s find themselves in?

Everywhere you go … you sense a spirit of desperation and every corner you turn, you see fear in everybody’s eyes! Unless something is done soon to turn this economy around, America will implode onto itself and there will be no winners!!! The people are desperate and “they need help now… not later!”

The Power of the Internet- Will No Longer Allow You to Have Selective Amnesia

With computers, video cameras and cell phones everywhere, it allows the public to receive real-time information and instant recall. You can no longer say, “I don’t remember saying that!” You no longer have to remember, the computer will!

You will be held accountable for your words and actions. If negative comments come off your lips, before you can close your mouth, you can find it attributed to you on the internet. These are the times in which we live! Words are no longer just useless verbiage to fill the gaps until something constructive is uttered.

Words can be used as weapons, to maimed, defame, kill and destroy.

People of these United States should not be collateral damage as a result of the verbiage of all three parties, the Tea Party, Republican Party and the Democratic Party.

As much as we would like to think that the actions of that young man weren’t politically motivated, it is very apparent that the seed was planted during the political debate. Was it the sole reason this unstable person opened fire on Congresswoman Giffords, Judge Rolle and others, No! But, was it the seed that set his actions into motion, Yes!

If the results of your words are attributed to something negative, you will be forever linked in history because of the internet. Don’t get caught up in the moment!

Everyone must be responsible for their own rhetoric in their camp. With the economy on life–support, jobs nearly non-existence, lack of proper healthcare, people continuing to be displaced from their jobs and homes with no hope in sight, any words uttered, regardless of the intent, could sound vitriolic in nature.

Be careful what you say… those same words can come back to haunt you someday…Oh! By the Way… Smile…You’re on Candid Camera!!!
