Thank You Mr. President!


Why is it that people can’t see all the good President Obama has done for America?

Is it because we have a Republican- controlled House of Representatives which from the day Obama was elected vowed to not work with him on anything? People need to understand that more than any time in history this Republican Party has used the super majority rule to block bills from getting passed in Washington

Native Americans “ethnic cleansing” and forced exile

What do you think the United States would do if thousands of missiles coming from Mexico or Canada rained down upon Americans? Americans who live on land we did not get peacefully, or in many cases, ethically and honestly? Much of our country has been deplorably stolen from Native Americans, whom we subjected to “ethnic cleansing” and forced exile. If these former occupants were to mobilize against us, would we dutifully return our homes, businesses and the land which our ancestors stole, and hope the missiles would stop? My guess is that we would blow these enemies to high heaven.

The GOP is hard to get along with.

Bashing the presidentWhy all the Obama bashing?It seems to me things are going pretty good now. The stock market is at a record high, unemployment is near 6 percent, housing sales and new homes are on the rise, construction of all types is going on, roads and infrastructure are being updated, health insurance is available to anyone who wants it (and affordable).

I do not know if President Barack Obama is responsible for all of the positive things listed above, but if these areas were not doing well, you can bet the GOP would be blaming the president.

Rick Scott as a governor, he will be rated among the worst.

Business and public good are sometimes incompatible

Government is about essential services; business is about profit. Business types have no “business” running government. That is the purview of elected officials.Government’s focus should be on solving problems, not on available dollars. The challenge is to find the resources, not cut the programs. It’s a different way of thinking and the best example of a failed businessman-politician is Florida’s Gov. Rick Scott.By “hook or crook,” he has become a very successful businessman. But as a governor, he will be rated among the worst.

Do you think your religious rights are being taken away?

Some ‘rights’ trample others

In the First Amendment to the Constitution, you will find the “Establishment Clause.” It prohibits the government from passing any laws that imply an establishment of religion.
Since the 1880s, the government has violated the Establishment Clause through numerous polices that involve religion. Among them:
“In God we trust” on our money.
“Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance.
Prayer in schools and government meetings.
Refusing to provide service to the public on religious grounds.
Bans on gay marriage.
Anti-abortion laws.
