Democrats Hope Twitter Will Be Their Savior

Democrats Look to Twitter to Reverse Fortunes for 2012

 If the Democrats think they are going to use Twitter to win and that will be their savior, they have another thing coming. These Democrats seem to think that they have all the answers, but the only thing that will save them is President Obama pulling the people into the polls as he did when he ran the first time. This is the only thing that will save the Democratic Party from destruction, and that may not even be enough to counter act what has been done over the past two years. We have to understand that the people are mad at both parties, but most people are not looking for a quick fix. The quick fix for the Democrats was to pass a stimulus that did not work. Their next plan was to just keep printing money because they have no idea what it means to print money you cannot back up with anything of value. Now we are told oil production is at its highest under Obama, but the facts are misleading the people. It takes YEARS to be able to start to drill in new areas, if you can get through the channels to be able to do so. If Obama thinks HE is the reason there is more exploration now, then he is sadly mistaken. What Obama has done is try to deflate any kind of gains we have made over the past decade or more when it comes to drilling for our own oil or going after our own coal.  

The Democrats have overplayed their hand and now they are overplaying social media to try and win another election. If reality is any guide, the young people that came for Obama will never come out again for him in the numbers they did. They know what he is about and they want a more Liberal man in the White House. President Obama has not made the far left happy enough, so in turn many of them will not be coming out to the polls. In a Democrats mind, there is no "lesser of two evils", only the man or women on the far left to take them to their Liberal paradise...whatever that may be. 

We have seen the social networks used before and they will be used again. The Republicans have never taken advantage of what the internet brings, and for them to beat the President in the next election they will have to use the tactics of the Left to do so. This may come as a surprise to you, but the Democrats are good at using social media when they have to, and putting candidates out there that will beat the "old school" republican any day of the week. If this happens again, and Obama is in the White House for another four years, we may see four years of gridlock...not just two!

Global Warming to Blame? You Know It!

Global Warming Caused Japan Earthquake?

There is another blog about this that you MUST read, and was written by another host over at Blog Talk Radio, Diane Student, host of the Freedom Wings Show.That link is below, and the link about is to another entry that I picked up on from a Google search.

Global Warming to Blame for Japanese Earthquake? (via Freedoms Wings Blog) 

Now, I know most of you do not have to be scientists to know that the earthquakes were not caused by a warming or cooling in the climate. Those who are trying to tell you that melting ice caps are moving and then causing earthquakes and somehow volcanic eruptions leaves me speechless. How can a normal person believe this is the case when all the science we have ever learned as a child would spit in the face of this kind of theory? There is NO WAY this is the cause, yet there are people who will fall for it hook, line, and sinker because they are looking for ways to blame industrialization on anything they can.

If we were to look back at what the Earth USED TO look like, we would have seen one massive continent known to scientists as Pangaea. This super-continent was then broken up by movements in our plate system and other factors that are still theorized to this day. For this continent to even have formed to to break apart, in the theory of those who blame climate change for the earthquake, then there should have been a massive warming period to go along with it. This is something we do not have evidence of. Since there is no evidence that Pangaea was broken up by warming trends caused by industrialization of Paleozoic creatures, then the theory that this earthquake was caused by man made means is ridiculous.

I am no scientific expert, but I have studied this at length in college and in other venues and the same answer keeps coming up: WE HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE SHIFTING OF PLATES!!! There may be some out there that disagree, but the argument you give is off the mark. No one is going to believe you when all scientific proof points to that these things happen, and will continue to happen no matter what humans do industrially. If someone can prove me wrong, I am here waiting for the proof. I am certain, however, that your theories are baseless and have no scientific backing what so ever.

A tragedy is now being used to advance a political agenda, which should not surprise us in the least considering that these men who are pushing the climate change argument are only looking for their next payday. It is sad that people would use this to advance an agenda like this when people are STILL being found dead in the streets and there are THOUSANDS upon THOUSANDS still missing and feared dead. You have to have some sort of mind to try and get people to believe something that is not true in times of trouble, just to make a quick buck.

Possible Nuke Meltdown In Japan

We know there are thousands dead and missing in Japan after the tremendous earthquake, which was upped from an 8.9 MAG to a 9.1 early this evening. Our prayers go out to those affected by the earthquake and all it has brought with it afterward, especially those living by the nuclear power station in question tonight. Japan has only a few hours to get the reactor cooled, and if they are not able to they are preparing for the worst. People are already evacuated from the region, and Japan may be dealing with this for many years to come. This is a terrible thing that has happened, and what I saw on twitter today made me sick!

There were people on twitter trending Hurricane Katrina! How on earth could you possibly make yourself think that is anywhere near funny, amusing, or necessary on a day like today? The problems that Japan is having is not to be compared to the tragedies of this nation, because both are tragedies in their own right. We do not feel the pain f the Japanese, but we felt the pain of those living in the Gulf region during Katrina. I understand that mindset, but at the end of the day this is about the Japanese and NOT about America. There are some people in this country that are so stuck up that for 10 minutes they cannot forget about themselves or what is going on in their lives to try and help someone who needs it. You people make me sick! 

There is so much coming in every hour about this tragedy, and if I get an update in the next few hours before I go to sleep, I will make sure to come over and update the blog as well. I cannot wait to get back to the radio show next month, and hoping it may be sooner than that if work goes the way I want it to for the next week or so. Again, keep the Japanese people in your prayers and if you feel the need to donate, make sure you know who you are donating to.

8.9 MAG Earthquake Hits Japan

While there is no number yet on the people lost in this tragedy, I want to extend my sympathies to those who were effected by this quake and the tsunami as well. In the coming days and weeks, you know all of us will be asked to give, and if you choose to, make sure it is to a group that you KNOW the money will get to where it is needed. There is not too much to say about this yet since it is so early in the ordeal, but I will come back a little later in the day to write up another blog on what is going on in Japan, the U.N. and United States response, and much more.

Is It Wise To Blame "NO Child Left Behind" For the Failing Schools?

82% of schools could be labeled as FAILING

The Department of Education is now blaming the No Child Left Behind Act for the failing schools, saying that the restrictions are so tight that schools cannot keep up with the requirements. Is this because the schools are not doing their job or because the requirements are too tough on the schools? I thought we cared about our children enough to do what it takes to get them the best education possible, but when that fails we blame Bush yet again for trying to fix the schools that are broken. Let me let you in on a little secret...THESE SCHOOLS WERE FAILING BEFORE NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND!!! There was no basis to judge the schools before that point, and now that we have them and a large number of schools are failing, the restrictions are the problem, not the schools. If the Department of Education had any brains at all they would know that these schools were failing long before No Child was passed into law.

The President would like to spend even more money on the schools and get rid of No Child Left Behind, but making rules that schools will be able to follow just to say they are not failing does this country no good. Like many other aspects of government, the Democrats want to cook the books, so to speak, to make it seem as if the schools are doing well when in fact they are still failing and the kids are still not learning. We need REAL education reform in this nation, and that does not begin by throwing more money at the problem. We have spent money and it has made the situation worse, now it is time to get the parents involved in their child's life. If the parent's do not care, then why are the kids going to care? If the kids want to just go home and play XBox or Playstation and eat a bag of chips and not do their assignments, I do not care how much money you spend we will still have a country full of stupid kids!

No Child Left Behind is NOT the reason schools are failing, the SCHOOLS are the reason the schools are failing. The money is not being used appropriately, kids are being taught be teachers who could care less if they teach or not as long as they get their benefits, and a government that wants to change the rules in the middle of the game to make kids think they are smarter than they all are. Why not just give every kid an A no matter how well they do just to pass them along? Our educational system is trash, and anyone who thinks that No Child Left Behind CAUSED this problem have no idea what you are talking about.

Frank Buckles Being Denied His Day Because of Congressional Leadership

Frank Buckles, the final American to pass away who fought valiantly in World War I for this nation, passed away early last week. I have been wondering what to say about this, and that is why I have not written anything so far. Tonight, however, I am a little bit mad and I am kind of glad I am not doing the show this month or all of you would have had to listen to me scream about Rep. Boehner, Sen. Reid, and their incompetent decision to not allow this American hero to lay in State at the Capitol Rotunda. The LAST surviving member who fought for America in World War I is not good enough to lay in the Capitol? Really? Why not? Was his sacrifice not good enough? What did he do for America but help fight to protect t it! These people in Congress make me sick, and they are all self-absorbed stuck up rich boys who could care less about the historical significance of this moment in time. Boehner, someone who I thought was different, is no different than all the others and the people can see it in this situation.

What does the Congress want to do? Have a "celebration" outside the Capitol to celebrate the life of a man, and other men, who fought for this nation. This man is not good enough to lay in state at the Capitol. Let us look at those who were given the honor of lying in state... Unknown Soldier of World War I (yes, the unknown soldier of World War I laid in state..odd, is it not?), J. Edgar Hoover, and ROSA PARKS!!!! I did not list the President's who have laid in state or the others, but there are some many of you will not know. These are the biggest names that have been given the honor in our nations history. This could also be given, by Congressional decree, to Frank Buckles. This is not being done because the leadership in the House and the Senate only care about themselves.

And why is our President silent on this? You would think he would have th e power to tell the Congress to act on this before they go any forward on anything else. This would take a few minutes to vote on and then we could go back to work on other issues of our day. The President has missed an opportunity to be a classy guy, so I am convinced he must not be.

All in all, we have lost our sense of respect for others and it makes me so mad to think that these people in Washington cannot stop thinking about themselves for TWO MINUTES to recognize a man who deserves to be recognized. If Rose Parks was given the honor, then this man, Frank Buckles, a man who FOUGHT for this nation and lied so he could, should also.

Obama's Mexico Problem: Why No Action?

It seems that American's are being gunned down at an incredible rate inside Mexico and even over the border into the United States by drug lords and smugglers, yet our President seems to be slow to act. I try to think about what those in the past history of this country would have down, and it would have had to be more than what President Obama and even President Bush did on this issue. The two, on immigration, are cut from the same cloth and have this strange idea that if they protect the American people from being killed on their own property on the border they will tick off the Mexican government. Even if that was the case, I ask why should we care what the Mexican government thinks?

For far too long we have allowed Mexico to become a safe haven for drugs and those who smuggle people into the United States, and there has been no recourse taken against the Mexican government. Our last few President's have been very weak on this issue, and now that MORE Americans are dying the people of this country want results, not just more political talk and more people being killed.

I am not saying we should invade Mexico tomorrow and make sure this does not cross our borders anymore, but there are other ways we can make sure this does not cross our borders and we are not doing it. Everything these days is about talking to one another to get things done, as if that has ever worked in the past. Do any of you think drug and human smugglers are going to listen to our President or the Mexican President if they sat down to talk with them? You have to be some kind of stupid to think they would! 

This has been a topic I have talked about many times on the show and will have to talk about more it seems when the show resumes next month. I have yet to understand what the mindset is of the people who lead these two countries. I know what the NWO nuts think is going on, but even that has flaws. If our governments wanted to join a new type of union at some point, having people killed in Mexico would not be good enough for the people of this country when it comes to getting behind something like that. It is all about fooling people into believing it is for the best, and what the people see now would frighten them to no end if there were to be some kind of union put in place between the North American countries. For the time being, their plans (at least the ones talked about by the conspiracy theorists) are failing miserably.

I would hope that all of you out there are reading this and will call your Senator's and Congress-people and let them know how you feel about American's being killed in the violence going on over at the other side of the border. Let them know this has to end and the American's living on the border of Mexico deserve the right to be protected just as those in other states would be protected. This injustice has gone on long enough, and it is about time something was done about it.
