Blame For Shutting Down Of The Government Should Go To Punch Drunk Harry Reid Of The Senate And President Obama

The Senate who are controlled by the Democrats have not fulfilled the responsibility the American people have entrusted in them for lack of doing their job and even more so since Harry Reid has been the majority leader. I am embarrassed that he is my Senator from Nevada it being every time he opens his big mouth he tends to make a fool of himself. Senator Ted Cruz who gave a classy presentation of a marathon of over twenty hours non stop which from the politicians who disagreed with him gave him great marks for endurance. Along comes Harry Reid and he makes a statement that nobody learned anything new from it. Reid has no class whatsoever. Its been said that he started off as a boxer, well I think he got hit in the head too many times early on and he has never recovered.

It is Obama who has put the country at risk of a shutdown by not even wanting to negotiate the House proposal that has been sent to the Senate. He knows the American people do not want Obama Care and I must remind the reader that the House would be more than willing to get some feed back from Obama to fix this terrible law; he doesn’t want no part of any suggestion of this happening. I am starting to believe that Obama via Reid actually want a Government shut down to make the issue the Republicans instead of his terrible health care bill.

In my lifetime I have never seen a Senate so inapt. The House at least have fulfilled their Constitutional obligations by sending various spending bills and budgets up to the Senate. In the last four years the Senate has passed only one budget and in most of those years they have not even submitted the documents mandated by law. They couldn’t even pass a budget when they controlled the White House, House and the Senate. You want to talk about Government shut down, I’ll give you a conversation on Government shut down when for the first two years of the Government being controlled by the Democrats with the country in an economic crisis all they did for those two years is try to pass Obama Care while the economy of America was spinning out of control, now that’s a Government shut down, lets get real.

The House has sent the Senate everything needed to allow the Government to function without funding for Obama Care. The pundits are saying that Obama Care is the law of the land, they cannot defund it. Obama has already breeched his own signature bill by breaking it apart. The Supreme Court ruled on a whole bill, not piece mail. Since when do we have a king that can just break up laws and his own law mind you into little pieces and declare it his way or the high way. It is Obama and the Democratic controlled Senate that are set out to shut down the Government. Yes, Obama and Reid, you are playing a very dangerous game.

American Freedom Fighters, Defund Obama Care!

This is it. Reality has set in. It is time to defund Obama Care. The clock is running out. President Obama is still lying to the American public that all is well with Obama Care. That could be furthest from the truth. I don’t have to write a thesis here to prove that Obama Care is not what it is cut out to be. I would start as my first concern is why are they taking away one of the best health plans in the world that people come from other countries to use it. Why is Obama who says he is so concerned about family health and well being allowing a health care system where when you reach a certain age, lets say 70 as an example and you need a hip replacement you will be considered non productive and younger people will be treated before your mother, father, aunts, uncles, yourself, and what have you. This is what Sarah Palin has labeled death panels, and she has not been proven wrong. You even have presidential candidate Howard Dean who is also a physician declare Sarah Palin correct. It is mind bungling just this part of Obama Care all by itself is not troublesome to some of its supporters.

The Congressional Budget Office(CBO) which is non partisan has come out with their latest estimates on Obama Care, provides a more accurate cost projection, finally encompassing 10 years of full spending. The 11-year estimate places spending on these provisions at $1.85 trillion from 2013 to 2023. Keep in mind whenever there is a new projection it has continuously gone up, starting from about $980 million in its earlier projections.

Take into consideration now that Obama Care was to be fed by the young, which was to be about a $8 a month penalty for not taking it. Young people do not think much about health insurance, especially if they are still single with the only responsibility is themselves. So is this young person going to pay the fine, or is he going to sign up for a $468 dollar a month policy? You tell me.

If you are an employer employing 50 or more people you have to provide insurance to full time employees. This has started already, I’m sure you have read about it or seen it on TV, employers are cutting full timers to part-timers so as not to have to provide health care. Before you start yelling greed do some homework and see how much an employer would have to pay. Instead of employers thinking of expansions which would have hired more people now they have to think of survival. You people that always have your hand out you better put your hand down because you will be lucky to have a job.

Obama’s biggest shock is probably from the unions who were supporting Obama Care to begin with. Now they are yelling foul. Here is a letter from the major unions to Senator Harry Reid and the Senate: When you and the President sought our support for the Affordable Care Act (ACA), you pledged that if we liked the health plans we have now, we could keep them. Sadly, that promise is under threat. Right now, unless you and the Obama Administration enact an equitable fix, the ACA will shatter not only our hard-earned health benefits, but destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class. This is in relation to the above paragraph as to how employers will be handling Obama Care.

This is just a small example as to how Obama Care will destroy the US economy or make it stagnant at the least. You have Obama who is not even considering making the adjustments that the majority of Americans are asking for. If this doesn’t prove that Obama is dead set to destroy the American economy, nothing will.

President Ronald Reagan Had A Clear Vision As To How To Handle Conflicts Such As Syria.

Early on when Ronald Reagan was still an unknown as far as politics was concerned President Dwight Eisenhower was asked his opinion on Ronald Reagan and he answered not to under estimate Reagan he has a considerable amount of common sense. I have seen people in my life time who were intelligent by no means. They were book smart but that is as far as it goes. President Obama falls into that category; I feel by his actions or lack of them he is lacking a large amount of common sense. Take presently in Syria, he has not given us the American people a clear vision as to what he wants to do over there. What are America’s objectives for invading Syria? What are we going to do if we or Israel are counter attacked by what ever means the enemy might use? If President Assad is weakened and falls who will take over? Lets let imagination run for a moment, is this just a scheme by Obama to get the Muslim Brotherhood in power in Syria? Obama has to make the argument to us that this attack is for the vital interest of the United States, and this is what is lacking from him, he can’t.

President Reagan had a clear vision as how to handle conflicts such as the one we are facing today. Reagan established these principles after nearly 300 American and French troops were killed in an attack on their barracks in Beirut in 1983. He listed them in his autobiography:

1. The United States should not commit its forces to military action overseas unless the cause is vital to our national interest.

2. If the decision is made to commit our forces to combat abroad, it must be done with the clear intent and support needed to win. It should not be a halfway or tentative commitment, and there must be clearly defined and realistic objectives.

3. Before we commit our troops to combat, there must be reasonable assurance that the cause we are fighting for and the actions we take will have the support of the American people and Congress. (We all felt that the Vietnam War had turned into such a tragedy because military action had been undertaken without sufficient assurances that the American people were behind it.)

4. Even after all these other combat tests are met, our troops should be committed to combat abroad only as a last resort, when no other choice is available. (Ronald Reagan: An American Life, 466)

What is missing with Obamas plan or as I would call it, lack of plan, he has not convinced us that an invasion is to the vital interest of the United States and he has not shown clear intent and support needed to win. I believe he doesn’t have a plan, I heard that their plan has changed over fifty times. How do you put our armed forces into action if you don’t have a plan? You just don’t. That would be immoral.

The Pieces Are Not Fitting The Puzzle In Syria

There are just too many factions in Syria that want the same end results; I am trying to rational other possibilities other than President Bashar al- Assad ordering the killing of his own people. As we know President Obama opened up his egotistic mouth about a year ago around this same time period after a chemical attack of which the finger was pointed at Assad. When Obama was asked about this he stressed the fact that Syria’s use of chemical weapons would cross the red line.

I am asking myself is it possible Assad did not order this chemical attack? Why would Assad put his military and country in such a state of destruction; suicidal in fact? Someone could say to keep his power; I say what power? he will be destroyed from both ends, military attack and the chemical weapons that he triggered. One has to be insane, is he that totally insane? His country will be lost to invasion anyhow. What if Al Qaeda or the Muslim Brotherhood got a hold of some chemical weapons and used them to frame Assad in the eyes of the International Community. If this being the case, Assad is ousted because Obama is convinced of the fact that Assad is the perpetrator. Convinced or not Obama has put himself in a box by bringing up the fact he considered the use of chemical weapons crossing the red line, now in his mind he is compelled to act.

The Great Britain Parliament voted that they don’t want to involve themselves in this pending war unless they knew for sure who was behind the chemical attack. It doesn’t look too good for the United States for Great Britain to not enter this pending war until there is concrete evidence as to who ordered this attack. My understanding is that if evidence is found Great Britain will have another Parliamentary vote. The following is from a post titled “Tariq Ali on Syrian Chemical Weapons: The Fact Is, We Don’t Know.”“Virtually no one who knows the region believes that these attacks were carried out by the Syrian government, or on its orders,” he says. “It’s crazy, if you think about it. They let the inspectors in, and then in a hotel barely 10 miles from—in a location barely 10 miles from where the inspectors are staying, there’s a chemical attack. And what good does it do the Syrian government to actually open fire on these inspectors? They want them there. So, I think it’s slightly incredible.”

I will not assume the fact that Assad had nothing to do with the chemical attack, but I feel all the pieces are not in this puzzle as of yet and if we are to go to war, with different factions in Syria ready to take over and the Russian navy ready to get involved this better not just be a trap to lure us into a conflict that was put together to do just that, lure us into a war that was rigged for us to enter. The question is, by whom?
