Something to ignore (One last chance)!

You simply must ignore the following text. I dare say all of it. It's good to ignore things once in a while. In fact, life would be more enjoyable if certain things were ignored. People are easy to ignore. Events, a bit more challenging. Rest assured I am not ignorant of the fact you are still reading. Perhaps you've jumped ahead a bit and observed the numerous paragraphs which lie ahead and have chosen to explore what the fuss is all about. Surly you must admit scrolling is kinda fun. It even gives your fingers a bit of exercise as an added bonus. You must continue.

But seriously, there is something to ignore here. Then again that is the whole point of ignoring, isn't it? Certainly something boring and meaningless is not worth your time. Alas, you've been hooked. Having now ventured further into this body of text you can't help but wonder what more could there be to ignore. You simply must forge ahead. It's the rebel in you.

Have you ever considered that there are people who actually get paid to ignore other people....or at least pretend like they are. Ah, now that's worth a bit of attention, isn't it. You might recall the guards of Buckingham Palace who stand absolutely still, paid to ignore you. Yet they are watching. Or if you prefer, let's examine a great paradox in the practice of ignoring. Politicians of all sorts love attention and do not take kindly to being ignored. To combat this unpopularity, their names are made known to us at great cost to those who give them their undivided attention. Odd, isn't it! Subsequent to being elected they engage in exercising their ability to ignore everything they previously promised. They were listening....but now they're not. A rather strange twist of events, don't you think.

Let us not forget to indulge our teenagers in the discussion of this matter along with their respective parents. We tend to ignore one other by engaging in selective listening and fragmentary hearing. Perhaps it's even a bit fun at times, a competition to see who can hold out the longest. Perhaps not. We really do love them and they us. We are always listening....except when we're not.

You the reader have ventured far and learned little. In fact, you have simply been reminded of that which you already know. There will always be something to ignore and someone to do the ignoring.

That is all. You may now begin to pay attention.

Obama: Is America Stronger since 2008?

Is America really more "awesome and stronger" since 2008? Let's review a little history:
-In 2009 President Obama embarked on an apology tour for all acts of aggression towards other countries by the USA prior to 2008.
-After fulfilling a campaign promise to end the Iraq war by 2011, President Obama assured the American people that everything would be awesome in Iraq after America's departure.
-A subsequent draw down of American forces by the current administration encouraged our most dangerous enemies of freedom to rise in power.
As a result internationally:
-The first US ambassador in 30 years was murdered.
-We have allowed Russia to take over Crimea and Ukraine.
-We have softened our sanctions against Iran and abandoned US allies in Iraq.
-Radical Islam is on the rise.
-America's national debt is approaching $18 trillion making it the greatest debtor nation in the world.
-23 million Americans are unemployed of under employed.
-Food stamp, welfare and disability recipients are all at record highs.
-Tens of thousands of illegal immigrants are being allowed to pour across the southern border and granted amnesty.
-America's big cities are engulfed in violence.
-The American family has broken down and morals are on the decline as also is the US Constitution.
-Ebola is here.
Yet on August 17th of this year President Obama gave a speech at a fundraising event in Mass. where he talked about how 'awesome' everything has been the past few years. He said America is 'stronger' than when he first came into office.
I guess that means I'm as dumb as a bag of rocks 'cause the facts just don't gel in my puny head!

Ray Rice Fiancee Knock Out Video YouTube/ TMZ Count Comparison!

Ray Rice delivered a crushing punch to his fiancee's face, knocking her out cold. But notice the view count of this video as it relates to others posted on the TMZ Sports YouTube page in the span of a few days. The Rice family received over seven million hits compared to a measly several thousand for other recent videos. Clearly Americans would prefer to see a woman getting beat up than watch boring sports and news commentary.

Here is the full video for those who wish to add to this total....

America: A cord of many strands!

On Wednesday evening, the eve of the 9/11 anniversary, President Barack Obama will outline to the nation his administration's plans for fighting the Islamic State of Iraq. For the present (and future) sake of America, whatever he chooses to communicate needs to originate from his heart, nurtured by pensive thought and prayer. He needs to sound presidential, not like a talking head grasping at random thoughts while reciting a pre-written speech. He needs to ooze confidence, boldness, authority and resolve. The President must use his sworn authority and power granted him to defend and protect the citizens of America. The world will be watching and Americans need to know they have a competent leader who is “all in”. Words must be chosen strategically and voiced authoritatively. Consequently he should not engage in any amount of waffling, indecisiveness, campaigning, blame games, moral ambiguity or hesitation. He needs to look boldly into the camera and demonstrate he means business. 

This speech has the potential to be a defining, memorable one. Most importantly, it could serve to rally all political parties and ideologies to a single cause, defeating evil. Evil does not negotiate, it relentlessly conquers. We must move the line in the sand back to its place. As in the days of 9/11, Americans would do well to spend an abundance of time on their knees, praying that The Lord grants a hedge of protection around our great nation, His nation.

Folks, it’s time to act as though we are one nation under God, indivisible with the collective goal of liberty and justice for all. In seasons like these we must be one. For a cord of many strands is not easily broken. The alternative is to simply do nothing and allow evil to pursue and destroy that which remains of all we consider virtuous.

Media fixated on Robin Williams....not Iraq!

Recently a caller asked Rush Limbaugh a great question:

CALLER: Yeah. My pleasure. You know, I don't want to sound insensitive, and Robin Williams was absolutely a wonderful talent. But, you know, it used to be that the media would sort of downplay celebrity suicide, which I think was actually a good and right thing. I just feel like they're making a huge deal about this when there's so much other news like Iraq, Israel, Missouri, et cetera, that they should be focusing on. My question is, what do you think the political reason for their doing this is?

RUSH: Well, interesting question. You know, I'm the guy that says there's politics in everything and you've gotta be able to spot it, and you're right, there is here. This really is an example of the dedication the media has to pop culture events and how important it is in the eyes of their audience. Whereas in Washington, the media thinks the world is on fire because of what's happening in the Middle East, your average TMZ viewer thinks the world doesn't make any sense anymore because Robin Williams committed suicide. The thing I worry about, I really do, they're making such heroism out of this that I hope it doesn't inspire a lot of copycats by people seeking the same kind of fame. And that's been one of my big concerns with social media from the get-go. I saw all these people just giving up every bit of information about themselves, just this desire to have everybody know everything about them, and we know that one of the allures of pop culture media is this desire to be famous and have pop culture media talk about you. And this is one way to do it, obviously. To kill yourself is one way to get the media to spend a lot of time talking about you, if you want to be talked about. I hope it doesn't spawn a bunch of copycats. Source

Obama bombs Iraq!

The United States dropped laser-guided bombs on ISIS artillery in Iraq on Friday, the Pentagon said — the beginning of airstrikes threatened a day earlier by President Barack Obama.

"You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq." --John Kerry

Seattle's $15.00 Minimum Wage "False Victory"!

Even if you have half a brain, it doesn't take a genius to figure out that raising the minimum wage will actually reduce the number of jobs available and/ or hours worked. Sadly, they will most likely be low income jobs, those which are needed the most desperately. It remains a short lived, false victory. If you don't believe me, consider the opinion from a few of the nations leading journalists below:

"The money for an increased minimum wage has got to come from somewhere, and there are only three places from which it can come: investors, in the form of lower profits; customers, in the form of higher prices; or workers, in the form of fewer jobs. Which group pays for the minimum wage hike depends on how competitive the marketplace is." By Antony Davies and James R. Harrigan

"The answer is obvious. Markets set wages. To stay in business and keep people employed, businesses have to be competitive. The cost of wages is reflected in the price of the product or service to the consumer. When labor costs go up, employers have two choices. They can attempt to pass the price increases on to customers (and perhaps lose their customers) or find a way to cut costs."
By Ellen Sauerbrey
