Today the President will announce the appointment of Liz Warren, will set-up the Consumer Agency in charge of financial regulation. That is my take on it.
My question for all you mostly sane people today is: what would your neighborhood look like without Teachers, Police, EMTs, Firefighters and other public workers that might be unemployed if the Democratic Party had not passed HR1586. Do you have families that are Public Service Employees if so; you should be outraged that folks like Bachman, Boehner called HR1586 a bailout. Republicans are using Americans as pawns to gain back control of Congress and make no mistake they are willing to throw All of us under the bus. FYI that includes their own constituents who seem to be complacent about it all -which by definition is: To be content and satisfied with your life and surroundings, even when something which may destroy these conditions is imminent.
We have all been watching a lot of election propaganda over the last few months and the biggest shock for me is that old-style southern rhetoric usually held mostly from people from the South is now coming from states all over the country. Have people lost their minds? I have faith that there are enough people who believe the extremists running for office are unqualified and have no place in Public Service.
I was surprised to see so many people on the Gulf Coast willing to stick with their republican representatives with all the bad governing going on over the last decade or more. The catastrophe of Katrina and now the BP oil disaster responses by local government would have made me do a total about face but it seems like that is not the case for the residents in the South. I know that the Southern States lean toward the right but some have made a choice to move even more toward radical leadership. There are many examples but with folks like Rubio; the so-called front runner according to the polls it is quite disappointing that folks in the South have yet to break out and away from Republican ideology because life there would change for the better in my opinion. We still have time to change the way things are. We all need to stop standing on the sidelines watching and waiting for more progressive attitudes, for new policies, new leadership in parts of country that are now anti-government, possibly more racists than we all thought, against health care reform, against comprehensive immigration and gays. We can combat the crazies but it is time to get serious and get out the vote and put more Democrats in Congress in the mid-term November elections.
It is not lost on me that Americans need a push into the 21st century. The leadership we need will think about how to better all our current positions in life; globally, environmentally, emergency response personnel who are not only educated about the area they oversee but are compassionate, allow stem-research, respect a woman’s right to choose, equal wages for women, health care for all families. The fact is President Obama has gotten Congress to pass legislation that will be good for middle class families but to get the change 53% of we voted for we need more true democrats on the floor of Congress. It is important that we do not repeat history by understanding the past. The house of Bush led us into 2wars that we definitely needed to change direction on but could not afford to just pickup and leave. Then we were all forced to live differently…clearly 9/11, Katrina and so many other issues have changed our lives and if you are paying attention some of those citizens have yet to actually get their lives back and that is something President Obama is and will continue to work on with those willing, able in partnership to get All Americans back to work
Yes, we continue to go through non-partisan realities and while it would have made more sense to work on change not as democrats and republicans but as we the people with different opinions, different values but with knowledge that we need to accept our differences make compromises, fix the corruption in politics, accept people as they are by enforcing our Constitution to reflect our 21st Century living. The idea that folks should be able to control how you live whether a person is gay straight is absurd but now folks have been abusing our constitution daily, using the gay life style as an excuse to hurt and or otherwise commit criminal acts, allow immigrants to immigrate based on fair legal means a path that acknowledges that most that work pay into our social security system and they should be recognized, respect our elderly and realize that major corporations are using the house of bush moving work overseas getting labor for cheap prices… we must stop outsourcing jobs, stop Republicans from being the Political Party of NO or step over them because their actions have made living hard on the American family.
