Obama Admin. Wars Meet With Few Protests – if any.

August 31st, 2013

Obama Administration Wars:

Maintained/escalated then ended: 1 (Iraq).  Escalated: 1 (Afghanistan).  Nations attacked: 1 (Libya) plus 1 (Syria) yet to come.  I guess anti-war protestors only cared when it was Bush Admin. toppling creepy dictators and despots?

Obama says U.S. will take military action against Syria, pending Congress’s approval

Most anti-war protestors only cared when a Republican was calling the shots?:
How Obama demobilized the antiwar movement

Maybe a few anti-war types still exist?:
Protesters Plan Rallies Against U.S. Intervention in Syria

The only other anti-war article from today’s google search:
“US out of the Middle East”: anti-war protests gain momentum

I’ve asked this question about the lack of war protestors before:
More Troops for Afghanistan and No Anti-War Protests?

After we help to liberate Syria from the creeps and despots that are in power in that nation, do we need to fear the Syrian people turning around and attacking one of our embassies and/or killing our folks as did the people in Libya?

March for Jobs and Freedom – 50 Years Later. Seems it’s Time for Another One.

August 28th, 2013

As the United States seems to be one of the few nations in the world where discrimination is illegal, much of the credit can surely be given and traced back to the historic efforts of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  Fifty years to the day of his famous march on Washington and speech at the Lincoln Memorial, MLK remains the perfect role model of how to effect peaceful and worthwhile change.  Fifty years later, however, it seems we are long overdue for another March for Jobs and Freedom – albeit for somewhat different reasons which reflect the changed circumstances of OUR nation and its leadership.  

It is clear that many of the nation’s jobs have expatriated overseas with no sign of returning.  And many of OUR American freedoms have also clearly dwindled as exemplified by OUR government spying on tens of millions of its own citizens.  Additionally, discrimination still legally exists as well – because purely economic discrimination remains entirely legal.  Of course, economic discrimination can then act as covering pretext for any discrimination one can envision. 

Many of OUR existing woes regarding jobs and freedoms are due to the efforts of OUR government.  Many of these current policies even seem to have eclipsed much of the strides made by MLK and others like him.

The policies of OUR government have fostered the expatriation of American jobs.  The policies of OUR government and elected officials have allowed for the boundless spying on the American people.  And, the policies of OUR government have allowed for the continuation of economic discrimination against any and all.  

As such, the time appears at hand to remind OUR government that it exists for the American People and does not exist to be pitted against the People.  Therefore, I believe the time has come for a modern March for Jobs and Freedom to stand against the policies of OUR government that have allowed for the prostitution of OUR jobs, the denigration of OUR freedoms, and the continuation of economic discrimination throughout OUR land.

Fighting for a Cause.

August 26th, 2013

For any who might be interested – such as any non-profit organizations considering having me join their team, I wanted to bring attention to why our collaboration could be beneficial to our mutual goals.  Also, as my blogs have probably scared away more frail-minded and wimped-out employers than the same will ever attract, I make this entry to display the potential to those that might be seeking such possibilities as explained herein.

Of all those who have known me, few could deny that I maintain the abilities to bring extreme levels of attention to any cause I care to champion or to any wrong that I care to highlight.  At the risk of sounding arrogant, it’s as if I have been given a talent.  I also have had many opportunities to put this talent into practice.  Those who might disagree with my viewpoints may often try to downplay my efforts as merely causing a lot of trouble or making a lot of noise.  However, I typically only will fight for causes that I consider forthright and worthy of my efforts. 

While I may lose some battles, I tend to believe that I win most of the wars – if for no other reason than the minds I am honored to influence and the footprints I leave behind.  Others then often seem willing to join in to support my cause. From which point the ranks willing to fight for the worthy cause can begin grow exponentially. 

So, if you have an issue that deserves more attention or a cause worth fighting for, here I am.  Say hello if you could use some help.

PS.  As a whole, this blog typically is as much to pose questions as it is to champion causes, I should mention.  At best, I only minimally promote my blog for any of several reasons, by the way.  But I think if one reads the words in my blogs it helps to prove my points in this entry all the more.  Thanks. Best wishes to you too.
