As you are aware if you’re one of the folks that read my post regularly, I am currently experiencing a bit of difficulty.
Albeit with that said; (in truth) I am not experiencing anything that many before me have experienced. I again spent a good portion of my day Wednesday lying immobile in an emergency room hooked to monitors, greeting “doctors and nurses” that devote themselves to those of us that run into circumstances beyond our control.
Circumstances that I hate, because I personally have yet to meet anyone that enjoys being incapacitated.
It was a long day and I knew it would be when I agreed with my wife and my brother to “error on the side of caution” as I experienced some numbness in my right arm.
And yes, I am aware that heart attacks generally present on the left side, and/or the left arm. However since I am aware that I currently have an undetermined number of small blood clots coursing throughout my interior, I believe it (not wise) to make the call myself.
During my 4 ½ hours of uncertainty, there was a lot of time to ponder, not just about myself, but others as well.
One of my concerns somewhere during my second hour on my gurney was the terrifying screams and crying from a child I would guess to be four or five from his lung capacity.
Unaware of his circumstances, I can only suppose as to the reason he was occupying one of the rooms adjacent to mine.
Although I wasn’t unconcerned about my circumstances, the young man’s terrified voice lent immeasurable perspective to the moment, at seventy-three, (especially for the male gender in my family), an expectation of anything to do with longevity is a pipe dream. 🙂
According to Webster: “pipe dream,” n. A fantastic notion or vain hope.
Keeping it real and doing what I do, no one can read what is in another man’s heart, albeit we can all read and individuals actions.
What greater tribute could there be to a nation’s fairness and freedom than to elect an individual fanatically opposed to the foundation of the nation that provided him the opportunity to nurture the tree, or chop it down.
Barack Obama has no love for, or “allegiance” to America or to “our” Constitution, his thoughts for America are subversive and his actions have been catastrophic.
Barack Obama, in my opinion (in the simplest terms), is an (idealistic) Marxist communist who “understands nothing” about love of country and the value of patriotism.
America is not a child’s toy purchased with another’s coin, it’s a proud nation with a proud history of men and women that sacrificed their all to create a nation where “character” trumps presentation and production trumps consumption.
We are not our brothers keepers, we are our brothers allies and his support in a time of need, we are Americans and an American, a “true American” has no need of any further title.
To declare that an individual, (any individual) is deserving for nothing more than the fact that he or she was born is a gross misuse of semantics. Life is indeed a gift, albeit it “does not” come without a cost and an obligation.
According to Webster: “ob·li·ga·tion,” (in context) n. The act of binding oneself by a social, legal, or moral tie.
Americans since America’s inception have always rallied to take care of one another, Americans do not need a wetnurse government to micromanage our daily lives.
We are and have always been a proud independent people, a true American has no need to reach out to their heritage for an identity.
A true American is proud to be an American, I am proud to be an American, I don’t need a prefix.
I’ve had a good life and I’m proud to report that I have never willfully dismissed the laws of God or man, except maybe for the short time that I owned a GTO.
Barack Obama and his liberal ilk are unequivocally intent on trading America’s inalienable rights for an ideology that has never provided for anyone other than the elite.
In America “the people” don’t simply have the power, “the people” are the power.
Moneylenders have always been a necessary evil, which is why our founding fathers specifically charged the people with the responsibility through our “representative government” to print and value American currency.
Quotes to ponder…
If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks…will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered…. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs. – Thomas Jefferson in the debate over the Re-charter of the Bank Bill (1809)
History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance. -James Madison
If congress has the right under the Constitution to issue paper money, it was given them to use themselves, not to be delegated to individuals or corporations. -Andrew Jackson
The Government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency and credits needed to satisfy the spending power of the Government and the buying power of consumers. By the adoption of these principles, the taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest. Money will cease to be master and become the servant of humanity. -Abraham Lincoln
Issue of currency should be lodged with the government and be protected from domination by Wall Street. We are opposed to…provisions [which] would place our currency and credit system in private hands. – Theodore Roosevelt
Despite these warnings, Woodrow Wilson signed the 1913 Federal Reserve Act. A few years later he wrote:
“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated.
The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men. -Woodrow Wilson”
Apologetic words by a guilty man have no value, Wilson could have undone the injury he caused America, but he didn’t.
Years later, reflecting on the major banks’ control in Washington, President Franklin Roosevelt paid this indirect praise to his distant predecessor President Andrew Jackson, who had “killed” the 2nd Bank of the US (an earlier type of the Federal Reserve System). After Jackson’s administration the bankers’ influence was gradually restored and increased, culminating in the passage of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. Roosevelt knew this history.
The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson… -Franklin D. Roosevelt
(in a letter to Colonel House, dated November 21, 1933)
“The death of Lincoln was a disaster for Christendom. There was no man in the United States great enough to wear his boots and the bankers went anew to grab the riches. I fear that foreign bankers with their craftiness and tortuous tricks will entirely control the exuberant riches of America and use it to systematically corrupt civilization.” Otto von Bismark (1815-1898), German Chancellor, after the Lincoln assassination
Money plays the largest part in determining the course of history.” Karl Marx writing in the Communist Manifesto (1848).
“Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.” Mayer Amschel Rothschild (1744-1812), founder of the House of Rothschild.
Barack Obama is a devout Marxist communist as well as an individual that categorically sympathizes with Islam, thus if Americans wish to remain governed by the U.S. Constitution, Barack Obama must be the last of his ilk.
Truth forges understanding, I’ll be back tomorrow
