loathed by the majority


Brock Jones Hussaini, you are just as delusional as the rest of the Dems, loathed by the majority, supported by those who need government assistance because they are to lazy to go get a job.

I did not scroll back on The White House Facebook page's photo to see if Brock Jones was speaking to a FB user named Hussaini. I actually read it as Hussein  so used to seeing Obama haters refer to our president by his middle name. Or by his childhood nickname. Or some name variation ~ Oduma, Owebama, and so on.

I would suggest that Brock Jones look up the word majority in a dictionary. President Obama won re-election with 332 electoral college votes to Romney's 206. Ironic that Romney ended up getting 47% of the vote, whereas Obama got 51% of the popular vote, or the majority of citizens who voted in the 2012 U.S. presidental choose Obama. Why ever would that majority vote for someone they loathed?

In addition  I would suggest that Brock Jones do a quick web search. He would learn that the 65 million+ that supported Obama could not all be jobless. He would learn that a slim majority of U.S. citizens get public assistance. True, many corporations get federal government assistance, as do all fifty states, but since Brock says "to lazy to go get a job," in the same sentence, he is talking about what is commonly known as welfare.

It is, btw, too, not to. The exit polls show 44% of those who voted for Obama are over the age of 65. 47% are between the ages of 45 - 64, which means some of that age group are retired, as are a whole bunch more over age 65. Lazy? Yikes!

Others who do not have jobs are disabled veterans. LOL, Brock, I would love to see you face off with a veteran telling them they are too lazy to get a job. As a matter of fact, I am ROFL on that one. Then there are the mentally disabled. Try telling the schizophrenic to get a job; who is gonna hire them, eh?

Oh, yes, I do know some people afflicted with schizophrenia do work, limited capacity, usually very low paying menial labor. That is but one of the types of mental disorders that prevent citizens from working. Then there are the college students. Who is to say they are unemployed? Exit polls showed 19% in the 18 - 29 year-old age group, likely candidates for attending college, but people in other age groups can be students as well.

Imagine a person studying to be a doctor being told by the Brock Jone's of the world that they are too lazy to get a job. Sigh.

It is sad that uneducated people like Brock are eligible to vote. Common sense, says that Oprah Winfrey is not too lazy to get a job. Nor Toni Morrison, Alice Walker, especially not workaholic Walter Mosley. The list is endless. I personally know many, many employed citizens who support President Obama. I do not know who anyone votes for, however, because votes are secret.

The photo showed President Obama shaking hands with Senator Chuck Hagel after nominating him Secretary of Defense.

Obama and Child


This is The White House Facebook page photo that Selena M. Henley commented on.

"I told you Liberals! History does repeat itself......."

I do not get what Selena M. Henley means by history repeating itself, in the context of her post. True, according to Snopes link posted in previous post, Senators have been trying to repeal the 22nd Amendment many times. Untrue is that they ever succeeded, so how can this be history repeating?

But that is what happens when uneducated people like Selena post garbage comments.

Educated voters

Kathy King Selena M. Henley King, I cannot believe that "supposedly" educated American Voters' believe anything that comes from the candy coated fiberal media. They want you Obamanites in the dark so you never know what Obama is up to.<<<<<<

I was about to post a comment to Kathy King: Paranoia will destroy ya, when I realized she was replying to Selena M. Henley (I cannot believe that "supposedly" educated American Voters' believe anything that comes from the candy coated fiberal media. They want you Obamanites in the dark so you never know what Obama is up to). I also considered posting: He is up to 6' 1"...


The issue is that people like Selena M. Henley believe whatever lies come her way via whatever media or talking head  she listens to.

Selena M. Henley Daniel, he wants to do away with the 22nd Amendment. It is term limits set for The President, Vice and his royal jesters ........ He wants to be president-dictator forever ! I told you Liberals! History does repeat itself.......

I may not be highly educated, but I am smart enough to do a web search regarding President Obama and the 22nd Amendment. Snopes already did the work proving Selena is not an educated voter.

http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/termlimits.asp

It always astonishes me when people refer to President Obama as a dictator. President George W. Bush, yes. He was the one who said, whatever he said exactly, that it would be easier if this were a dictatorship and I was the dictator.

He also declared (no quotation marks, I am not taking time to find exact quote,) that if you are not for us you are against us. So that if a citizen is redressing government for grievances  such as protesting the impending invasion of Iraq, and later that war of aggression  they would be deemed "against us,"or anti-American. That would make Bush's style one of dictatorship ~ my way or no way.

In addition, Hillary said the government has to make choices for citizens because the people can not make choices like that for themselves. Truly the mark of dictating, which is consistent with her style.

President Obama is the exact opposite in personality and ruling attitude as those two. Yet many citizens consider G. W. Bush to have been a great president and about 1/2 of those who voted in the 2008 Democrat primary wanted Hillary to be the nominee. All three, I believe, are moderates, not liberals, thus Selena's sarcasm about liberals is misplaced.

These comments were found on a The White House Facebook page's photo of President Obama. I guess the photo is in the public domain, so will download and post it here. Selena's ~ and the majority of other comments ~ have exactly zero to do with the lovely photograph.

When I realized that most all of my Facebook friends can see comments I make on pages, I decided to stay out of the comment wars, and will, instead start publishing my comments to comments on this unused blog.

Mass killings

I got involved in a Facebook comment conversation via a friends wall post (status update) ~ perhaps he shared an article or wrote about his feelings regarding gun control or regulations in the U.S.

I got tired of people writing in comments on the issue, where ever there is an article, and especially on The White House FB page, about China. Everyone knows about the Newtown, Connecticut mass shooting that killed 20 elementary school children and also some adults ~ principal, teacher, nurse, and so on. On the same day, December 14, 2012,  there was a knife attack that injured 20 elementary school students in China.

Pro-gun bans say yes people might use a knife if no guns are available, but the students in China did not die. WTF, okay that some had ears and fingertips severed. Hey, hey, hey, you lost an ear, but at least you are alive. The China incident might not be as tragic because those students lived through the horror, but it is still tragic, horrible and should no be held up as an example of why guns should be banned. Talk about sick thinking.

I kept replying to those comments that there were other knife attacks in China that resulted in death of elementary age students. Wanted to be more accurate. Typed this list, posted it on friend's status update conversation, then removed it. So what to do with the list? Why post it here, of course, for future reference.

*Erfurt, Germany, 2002, expelled 19-year-old student killed 16 at high school
*Dunblane, Scotland, 1996, 43-year-old man had 4 handguns, 16 kindergartners and their teacher were killed

*Brazil, April 2011 12 children killed, 20 wounded at school, ages 10-13, .32 and .38 revolvers with speedloaders
*Norway, 2011, mass shooting at youth camp, killing 69,  of youth, also planted bombs killing more ~ labeled as a terrorist
*Montreal, Canada 1989, 25-year-old killed 14 at university, with Ruger Min-14 semi-automatic rifle purchased legally, 14 others injured

Person I was replying to mentioned European nations with strict gun control regulations do not have a lot of these mass shootings. Also mentioned never happens in Canada, nor done by Mexican/Americans ~ which is true enough, but is not a uniquely United States problem.

Registered Voters by Political Party

After much research could not find an answer to my query as to how many registered voters there are per political parties. Best answer I could find:


About 55 million are registered Republicans.
About 72 million registered Democrats.
About 42 million are registered as independents, under some other
minor party or with a "No Party" designation.'

Average Wages

I got tired of listening to people talk about the 53% supporting the lazy 47% who do not work, just want Santa Claus Obama to give them free stuff. Just because someone did not owe Federal Income tax in the year 2011 does not mean that they not work. For that matter, if they filed an income tax form, they most likely had some form of income.

Even unemployment compensation can be subject to Federal Income taxes, despite the fact that in order to collect unemployment compensation, one must first have paid into the system via taxes. Same is true of retired Social Security recipients. It is an insulting when people berate other citizens of whom they have no knowledge. A few clicks of the mouse, and anyone could have detailed info as to who the 46.4% who owed no Federal Income tax liability in the year 2011 were.

And where would the very wealthy or even moderately wealthy be without workers whose average wages go like this:

Median Wages (50% earn more, 50% earn less)

Averages Median Wages:

Institution and Cafeteria Cook Salary: $20,400.

Waiter/Waitress $14,800.

Restaurant Cook $20,300.

Home Health Aide $19,400.

Nursing Aides, Orderlies, Attendants $22,200.

Physical Therapist Aide $22,100.

Dental Assistant $30,200.

Clergy $39,700.

School Bus Driver $24,800.

Transit and Intercity Bus Driver $32,100

Ambulance Driver and Attendants (not including medical technicians) $20,400

Hotel, Motel, Resort Desk Clerk $18,500

Maids, Housekeeping Cleaner $17,600.

Sanitation Worker  1 - 4 years 24,200 ~ 36,00
              5 - 9 years 32,400 - 70,00
             10 - 19 years 23,154 - 74,497

Either hotel/motel/resort owners need to pay their desk clerks twice as much or people need to shut up about tax fairness. Once Bus driver has payroll, city, state, federal taxes, health insurance, other items deducted from their paychecks, their take home pay is not enough to take them home ~ as they say ~ or in reality provide a decent roof over head of themselves, feed themselves, clothe themselves, pay for transportation to and from the job, worse when they have family ~ two income family will help ~ still if these people did not have to pay Fed. Income Tax, who cares.

My unpublished petiton


Mr. President may I respectfully ask you to issue a mandate on our behalf, that any state petitioning to secede from the nation be first required to hold a general election in said state to determine if the majority of the citizens in said state are agreeable to ceding from the Nation.

(skip to end)


As far as I know we are still the United States of America and our Constitution gives citizens the right to liberty. The petitioners are taking away my liberty by requesting to secede my state without asking my permission to speak on my behalf.


I left out the middle of my too long petition because I decided I had to write a second one.

I need 25,000 signatures on my petition before December 14, 2012 in order for President Obama to give it consideration. Please help. thank you. 

Secede Petitions

I am irate. As of last time I saw news on citizens petitioning the U.S. government via White House petition tool made available for use by President Obama, 37 states are petitioning for permission to peacefully cede from the nation.

WTF.

I do believe only a governor could ask tell the president the state s/he governs wants to withdraw citizenship. Not interested in history ~ this is the year 2012 ~ so stick to today, puh-lease.

No one in my state asked me if I was agreeable to ceding. I am not. I have already faced possibility of my state removing themselves from the union due to what was that group called, Mecha's? Wanting to take back the land stolen from them by us. Actually Spain, France, England, Russia took lands we now call the United States of America, Mexico and Canada from people we call tribes or Native Americans. The states in question were bought or won through wars, no theft involved.

But both states I could move to in the event my state was given permission to secede are also petitioning to go bye, bye. Not the states, just citizens petitioning President Obama, even signing to secede states where they do not reside ~ taking all my right to liberty ~ the right granted by the Constitution ~ 'cause at this moment, we are still the United States of America  ~ and how dare these (too polite to name them) do this without requesting my state to hold a general election to get majority consent to such a disastrous move.

Fixing what is not working within our government is the better option, not starting another civil war ~ pitting citizens against citizens.

So incensed I wrote my, call it a rebuttal, are you people daft, petition. Unfortunately the site only allows 120 characters so I had to submit a much shortened version of it.

If you believe you should have a say as to whether you state withdraws, please, please sign my petition. Thank you.

dang

I can not stand Google's new version of Blogger. An eyesore, difficult to use. Used to be compact, easy to use, preview, find stuff, edit stuff  ~ no more. I did want to add to this blog, just as a place to keep things I might want to use someday ~ except the way it stands ~ dang, will never be able to find what I want; okay, maybe not never, but definitely not the used to be easy couple of seconds or a minute ~ tops.

I just want to cry. Even though people did not read my blogs, I enjoyed them. Sad, sad, sad.

Blame Game

If people are going to blame President Obama for Benghazi, I guess they also blamed Bush for the following deaths:

 June 14, 2002, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan Suicide bomber kills 12 and injures 51.

February 20, 2003, international diplomatic compound in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia Truck bomb kills 17.

February 28, 2003, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan Gunmen on motorcycles killed two consulate guards.

July 30, 2004, U.S. embassy in Taskkent, Uzbekistan Suicide bomber kills two.

December 6, 2004, U.S. consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia Militants stormed and occupied perimeter wall. Five killed, 10 wounded.

March 2, 2006, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan Suicide car bomber killed four, including a U.S. diplomate directly targeted by the assailants

September 12, 2006, U.S. embassy in Damascus, Syria Gunmen attacked embassy with grenades, automatic weapons, and a car bomb (though second truck bomb failed to detonate). One killed and 13 wounded.

January 12, 2007, U.S. embassy in Athens, Greece A rocket-propelled grenade was fired at the embassy building. No one was injured.

July 9, 2008, U.S. consulate in Istanbul, Turkey Armed men attacked consulate with pistols and shotguns. Three policemen killed.

I did not verify the above info ~ I vaguely recalled deaths at embassies during GWBush's administration  but do not remember people quick to condemn him for deaths in other countries. There were also reporters and other civilians killed while overseas. So very tired of the blame game ~ if people want to blame President Obama for an attack overseas, they might consider jailing GWB for attacks on our soil that killed thousands on September 11, 2001.
