Back to Basics
Back To Basics
When a team isn’t hitting, or fielding or tackling or
making free throws, what is the first thing the coach says? Usually it’s
something about going back and practicing the basics of the game. Your child is
having problems with algebra like I did, go back to the basics. It seems simple
I theory but in reality sometimes it’s a royal pain to put into practice. We
get so caught up in the way we put our own little spin on things that we just
can’t seem to let them go, slow down and be willing to start over.
Have you ever had a new boss who comes in and the first
thing they want to do is change the way things are done? Doesn’t matter if it’s
the processes you use or the contractors and vendors you have always used.
Sometimes it’s the brand of coffee in the break-room because he or she likes
something different. Welcome to the United States Government
The government has gotten so far off the track of what it
is and how it’s supposed to operate that those who grew up in the 40’s, 50’s
and 60’s don’t even recognize it. The great equalizer of big oppressive
government is supposed to be the supreme court, but as we have witnessed over
the past couple of decades is even they have forgotten what their specific role
in government is.
There is no magic reset button we can hit. There is no
quick fix to right a stray government. It will take a generation to fix all
that is wrong with government, and the only way to fix it is to return it back
to the basics of what it was meant to be.
Lawyers make up almost all of congress and almost all the
presidents we have had over the last century. Go back 200 years ago and who do
you find in those positions of power? You have land owners, merchants,
businessmen, farmers, ranchers ………..the actual job creators. Anyone who tells
you government is not a business is only fooling themselves. The U.S.
Government is the biggest business enterprise in the world. Lawyers don’t run
business, they regulate business. Lawyers don’t work the land, they regulate
its usage. Putting a lawyer in charge of the government is closely related to
putting prisoners in charge of the prison.
Justice Roberts the other day described accurately how to
get the government back to basics, you fire the people in place and you hire
new ones. The federal government refuses to regulate itself. It refuses to
abide by the laws it creates yet holds us accountable when we act just like
them .…. the lawyers. Lawyers were meant to interpret and defend the law, not
make the law. Vote every one of them out of office.
Resetting the government back to basics will take a
minimum of 24 years. America needs to be united and committed if they want
their country back from the lawyers who control it. Lawyers are referred to as
snakes for a reason. This should not be a conservative or a liberal idea but an
American idea. Who is better suited to teach your children, someone committed
to teaching children because it is their passion or someone who does it but is
committed to the teacher’s union? Who is better to take in money, account for
the money and spend the money, accountants, business leaders and economist or
lawyers? Who is better to decide the path of a business like the government, a
CEO or a lawyer?
We all need to dedicate 2012 as the beginning of getting
back to basics and taking our government back and the best way to start is
taking it out of the hands of the lawyers who control it.
Fifties something guy, with a political view, but not in your face with it. Don't ask my opinion about politics if you don't want it, but I don't start conversations about it when meeting you for the first time. I have so many interests, that I don't pigeon hole into one catagory. I have written a book, and been published, it's about the care I gave my parents in their last years, it's a story of love, care, and dedication.
“Even sadder that so many of us are so blind and stupid, just living our lives daily and letting "smarter" people 'run' our lives."
"Thank God for people like you.”
“This is so horrible....how can one be so advanced and so naive at the same time..”
“Well if you were a politician, you would have my vote. I have a great deal of respect for intelligence...especially when I agree with most of your thoughts, almost visions."
"So many things 'we' stood for are getting lost and no one seems to be taking notice.”
"Your ideas, and thoughts are well researched, great job!"
"I really felt like you are really ‘in tune’ to what is really happening…so I ‘depend’ on your wisdom.. "
"Thanks for sharing all your findings Al. You have been such a big help with my decision. I knew in my heart that McCain should be our leader, but you sure made me all the more convinced…and the people I have forwarded your emails to feel the same way, I’m sure. I still think you ought to ‘run’ for an office, open some eyes around here"
I just want to thank you for being such a great American. I have always been interested in politics but now that I have a son, I really am quite interested. And to be honest, I really feel for him and what he is going to have to put up with in the future. My one saving grace is the fact that when I was his age we also had an awful President in office and fortunately the Great Ronald Reagan came riding in on his horse to save us. Hopefully in 2012 someone will come swooping in and save us. I appreciate the posts that you put on letting the world know of the crimes that most of the press won't let the world see. Well I am just in one of those moods tonight and I am rambling on but I just wanted to thank you. I would always love to get more involved in politics and if there is ever a place that you think I could come in and help please don't hesitate to ask.

My Personal Beliefs ( so you know where I'm coming from)
I believe, that the United States of America is the best country in the world bar none.
I believe, the founding fathers wrote the Constitution of our country based on their belief in Christianity, and encouraged the practice of all religions but not at the expense of the others.
I believe, the Supreme Court should interpret the Constitution and not legislate from the bench.
I believe, the Constitution is a legal document, and not a living document subjected to constant change.
I believe, the course to peace is based on strong military, strong principles, and not a pacifist denial approach.
I believe, the second amendment is the right of every citizen in our country, and people not guns are the cause of murder.
I believe, in the death penalty as a form of public compliance to our laws.
I believe, a declared “hate crime” should not just be limited to describe the victimization of one race, or religion, but should be applied equally.
I believe, taxes are necessary to run our country and benefit our citizens, and not to give to foreign governments to “buy” friendships.
I believe, the government should have no right to tax a dead man’s estate on money he has already paid taxes on.
I believe, the President should have the power of the Line Item Veto.
I believe, that Senator’s and Congressmen should have term limits the same as the other elected officials.
I believe, that Senators and Congressmen should eliminate the word “entitlements” from their vocabulary.
I believe, that taxation in our country is disproportionate according to annual salaries, and serves to polarize citizens within the system.
I believe, “Affirmative Action” is neither affirmative nor action, and should be eliminated, as it’s just another form of prejudice.
I believe, that “pork barrel” or “earmarks” should be eliminated, as they are detrimental to budgetary constraints of our country.
I believe, in a balanced budget amendment with the exception of a declaration of war.
I believe, that if it’s so easy to raise hundreds of millions of dollars for a Presidential Position that pays $400K a year, then the amount raised should be taxed.
I believe, in governing our own country, and never handing power of a New World Order to the United Nations for any treaty.
I believe, to insure the safety of our citizens, we need to secure our borders and enforce existing immigration, and hiring laws.
I believe, that English should be formally declared our official language, and should be used in business dealings at home, and English should be taught in school systems to mainstream students.
I believe, that immigrants to our country should be made to assimilate to our culture, and not the other way around.
I believe, global warming is a reality, but to declare that man made emissions are the main cause, based primarily on computer based models, is akin to believing that weathermen can predict next week’s weather based on a “preponderance of evidence.”
There is one areas I don't agree with the official Republican Platform:
I believe in Gay, and Lesbian Rights
I do not believe in same sex marriage though
I want to welcome everyone to my blog site. Everything you see is my opinion only. As we all know some sources are better then others, and when I see them as questionable, or open for conjecture, I back them up with another source. However, unfortunately, sometimes even these sources can be wrong, and if that is the case, I apologize. When researching a subject, my aim is to find the truth, and the facts and links to back it up. I don't take a position lightly, I research first and form an opinion from the collection of facts. I hope you enjoy the fruits of my research, because not everyone can devote the time to do this.......... because this work represents hours of time invested, if you copy and paste an article please insert a link back to my blog. Thanks again
