Trying hard to love my fellow man today. Not working.
So, why are 2020 Democrat candidates discussing free stuff? Free medical for illegals, free college.
There’s NO free lunch.
Our government is funded by the taxpayers, mostly.
When the US needs more money, the Federal Reserve prints more dollars. This should scare US. The US used to be on the gold standard. Our money was backed by gold. If our economy collapsed, our creditors would be compensated with gold. We ran out of gold, so that concept ended.
Now our money is only backed by the good will of US businesses and other countries. The US needs to live within its means. Balanced budget. NO deficit.
So, NO money for illegals. No more importing people from other countries that require aid. We should import employables. Americans first.
Fix US before them.
What should be addressed by politicians, taxpayers, news media:
• Social Security cost of living raises. If my money is not there, someone stole it.
• Social Security money. Medicare (80 %) has to be paid from SS, then more money for Supplemental (20 %) insurance. Then there are copays, prescriptions, out of pocket. If you're old, you're poor. If you're sick, you're screwed.
• Illegal housing. Wtf? House homeless first. If illegals don't like our generosity, tough.
• Parents lunch money debt. That debt got sent to collection company. Wtf? How poor do you have to be? Children cannot learn on an empty stomach.
• My friend lost her house, had to feed family. Couldn't get food stamps. Why? They were told their car was paid for. Had to ask outside family, church, friends for food. Finally got job.
• Mental health. US used to have free mental health facilities. I was a volunteer at Elgin State. Those people needed to be safe. Stopped funding during Reagan’s balance the budget. Homeless.
• Veterans screwed with medical care, help to transition post service. Homeless.
• Families on the streets. Children homeless. Help them first.
• Bring businesses back to US. We lost our steel business, our clothing industry, cars, even our technical skills. Why? Globalization. Cheaper costs. Our government sold US out. US businesses had NO reason to buy American, employ American. Trump is trying to change that.
• Just recently, I was bounced all over India for ATT technical help. Why, NO America?
• Don’t give money to countries that hate US. No more Mr. Nice Guy. In fact, quit all foreign aid, especially to countries persecuting women, Christians, gays.
• Trade agreements. We buy from you, you buy from US. Fair is fair.
• Politicians pay raise. These people make as much as doctors. Hell no. If they are millionaires, they're crooks. I want every politician's tax return on gov.com website.
I want politicians to tell me how they are going to improve our country, not run it further into the ground.
So, I’m going to be an advocate for GOD in our American Godless society.
So, what happened was Madelyn Murray O'Hair, atheist. In my view, an atheist doesn’t believe in GOD and anything associated with God's teachings. Madelyn didn’t want her child being exposed to the good word and her bitch went to the supreme court. 1963. Prayer was taken out of schools, 10 Commandments off of public buildings, separation of Church and State.
Why in the hell did we let someone absolutely ruin our society?
What is wrong with having GOD in our lives? Having the wrath of GOD in the back of our minds makes most of us think before we act. Is, going to hell worth it! WWGD (What would GOD do). GOD is our father figure and all of us his children. Parents are supposed to teach their children how to be good people.
The Bible is our society's rule book. It teaches us through stories, poetry, and history how to be a better person. What is wrong with being a good deed doer? The Old Testament is filled with lots of fire and brimstone, while the New Testament is Jesus and forgiveness. The Bible is huge. It’s a tad hard to read because of the English, the begots (ancestry), and length. It’s the history of our religion. There is a Bible For Dummies, I checked. Organized religion formed, so someone could interpret the stories and try to show us how they work in today’s world. It’s worth the time and tithe to attend a church of your choice.
And prayer, what's wrong with self meditation? Internal reflection. We have a brain to help us think through things. By praying, we not only speak to GOD about things happening to us, others and our life, we talk to ourselves. GOD driven therapy.
So, my point.
Without GOD in our lives, we don’t have our biblical rules. People aren’t being taught values, the 10 Commandments. No one values life anymore.
This situation must change. Believing in GOD, that’s a good thing. Bring GOD back into our hearts, our schools, and our government.
Be proud to be a Christian. Speak up for the good word.
This is a shout out to all my neighbors with older homes. Recently, my door knob failed. And when I say failed, it would not open the door. No way, no how. Luckily, the bathroom is connected to my bedroom. I had an escape route. Had it been different, I would still be stuck inside. I had no tools and anyway the door knob screws are on the outside side of the door. I would've had to pry the door jam hinge apart to open the door. So, for my stand alone upstairs bath, I'm putting a screwdriver inside a drawer. My new door knob that I just bought from Home Depot, same design. ?
