So, we have very bad weather on the East Coast with family friends and tourists leaving or stuck somewhere because they made the decision to wait out hurricane Earl. The best plan during hurricane season is to follow the mandatory evacuation efforts and it would be one less person to have to worry about because things happen, things that are not planned and as we all know if people are missing it is up to first responders to go find those people which increases the number of people at risk. Though it is commendable that folks want to stay put and protect their property but it does put a strain on the people who are paid to save us and we all need to remember putting ourselves at risk affects others during hurricanes and floods. Anyway, lets hope we have far and few hurricanes as we move into fall and winter. We have yet another oilrig explosion which begs the question why moratoriums are important. It is yet another bit of evidence about doing what is right for everyone. We all need to call 202-456-1111 to ask the President to go back and file another moratorium request for the Gulf Coast based on the latest incident. The fact is that each and every Well needs to be checked or deemed safe to operate before letting them restart full operations.
On Monday, President Obama accused Republicans of stalling and blocking a separate $55billion legislation that would cut small business taxes. It is unfortunate that the public fails to see what Republicans are doing to not just Democrats but to their own constituents. It is the hope of Senate Democrats that they can get this small business package passed. In my opinion those people who own small businesses on both sides of the aisle need to get on the phone and tell their member of Congress that it’s time to move forward not backward and please people think about what will happen if things get even worse. It will send our first responders, teachers, police and the unemployed under the bus.
The President also commented on what he is currently working on regarding our economy and it will include as reported by Cnn, “that his economic team is identifying additional measures that will make a difference in promoting growth and hiring in the short term, and increasing our economy’s competitiveness in the long term,” he continued by stating that “Steps like extending tax cuts for the middle class that are set to expire this year. We will redouble our investment in clean energy and R&D, rebuilding more of our infrastructure for the future. Further tax cuts to encourage businesses to create jobs here in the United States.”
The idea that people are willing to vote for the Republicans while being misinformed about what President Obama has done for all Americans over the next 20months and if you are willing to admit you are not sure please go to the White House blog and find out definitely read to get the facts from your own member of Congress then compare and contrast that against reality. I will bet you will come back and decide to vote for the Democratic Party…and FYI if we can keep the House and load the Senate up with Democrats we can get the rule of 60 out of the way, we can get if folks have the courage to vote for a public option as well as other things Republicans have managed to stall, block and strike down. Let me point it out for you –Republicans have said no to all everything that will help Americans get back on track.
As we all enjoy the long weekend due to the Labor Day Holiday and or pray for those getting slammed by hurricane Earl we all also need to remember Katrina the BP disaster and all the things that did not get done. If you watched TV last weekend it was very apparent that the local and state government did not do their jobs for their constituents. It is beyond me to think seven years have passed without much work getting done while folks like Gov. Jindal say No to big government but has his hand out for more money just like other Republican Politician. The idea that blame the Obama administration for being the symbol of everything they hate, promote fear mongering, spewing hate while plotting to take down the very people trying to help them out. It is so hypocritical offensive and sad to think these people may actually take over our government and cut off programs the were put in place to help our fellow man only to be called bailouts by folks like Cantor, McCain, McConnell, Bachmann, Boehner as well as other so-called Republicans/Teabaggers who might just be dangerous to even their own constituents.
