WE NEED A NATIONAL DAY OF PROTEST


Are you on board yet? Spread the word, July 11th is National Day of Protest.

Arlin Report

President Obama, his administration and all of Congress have extremely poor approval ratings, record lows.   That isn’t surprising when you have a legislature that is ineffective and proven to be incompetent; and throw in a President, who believes he is superior to all of us and has no respect for the constitution or the people it was to protect.

The approval/disapproval ratings come from randomly taken polls, from the people.   I believe it is safe to say, most of us are not happy with our elected leaders, decisions and indecision and the state of our nation.   Presidents don’t give State of the Nation speeches with any accuracy, they would have to admit failure.   They usually state all of the obvious and what they would like to see happen and why it hasn’t because they can’t get any cooperation from Congress.   So, the thing to do…

WE NEED A NATIONAL DAY OF PROTEST


President Obama, his administration and all of Congress have extremely poor approval ratings, record lows.   That isn’t surprising when you have a legislature that is ineffective and proven to be incompetent; and throw in a President, who believes he is superior to all of us and has no respect for the constitution or the people it was to protect.

The approval/disapproval ratings come from randomly taken polls, from the people.   I believe it is safe to say, most of us are not happy with our elected leaders, decisions and indecision and the state of our nation.   Presidents don’t give State of the Nation speeches with any accuracy, they would have to admit failure.   They usually state all of the obvious and what they would like to see happen and why it hasn’t because they can’t get any cooperation from Congress.   So, the thing to do in Washington is point the finger at one another as the guilty party when nothing positive gets done, when in fact they are all just clueless and incompetent.  There’s that word again.

I know that we are all tired of hearing the rhetoric, frustrated with the policy and non-policy of our government.   The corruption, OMG the corruption, scandal, partisan B.S., and general stupidity you hear from those that were sent to Washington to represent you.   Represent you, us and not for their own personal gain.

Everyday, it is something else, quite often so we will quit talking and inquiring about the previous piece of controversy.    If Washington is good at anything it is creating distractions.

Too often we question what needs to be done and complain but take little action ourselves.  We occasionally write or speak out, expressing our anger over illegal immigrants, too much money spent on foreign aid, why can’t or don’t we tend to our own problems.   I remember the sixties and early seventies where a generation protested in the streets, marched on Washington for whatever their cause.   The Hobby Lobby decision showed a spark of some of that same spirit with people, mostly women protesting against the Supreme Court and Hobby Lobby.

There are very serious issues facing our country.  The Speaker of the House and it’s Minority Leader I might add, have said immigration reform will not get done this year.   Then we have a Prez who wants to make an executive decision, which won’t be out of spite but for power.  Folks, it is time the American people stood up to this crap.

If President Obama can make an executive decision without Congress, I can proclaim a National Day of Protest.

I, an ordinary but highly frustrated  citizen, announce July 11, 2014 as a National Day of Protest.    What ever you are against or for, speak out, assemble, march on Washington, write a letter to the editor, just be heard.   It doesn’t have to be national, it can be your state or local government.   If you are unhappy about the state of this nation, your state or community then say so, show up on their doorsteps.

If we want and expect change we must change our state of complacency.   Why do we simply accept the direction our government has led this nation?   There is more we can do, we have our voice.  We must become more visible and take action.   On July 11th if people across this country participated in a peaceful, and it must be a peaceful protest, we will be noticed and we will be heard.  We have to get up off the couch and just do it.

If July 11th doesn’t work for you or your group, pick a day that will.  This is your day, it is our day and it is about time.

I would encourage all the readers to reblog.   Thank you.

5 Things Women Need to Know About the Hobby Lobby Ruling


I’m not here to make a comment in favor of the decision one way or the other. I like seeing people protesting what they are adamantly against. I wish we saw more of this on other issues, immigration, loss of jobs, over extension of foreign aid…….etc, etc., etc. March on Washington if you have a cause.

TIME

On Monday, the Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision that the government cannot require certain employers to provide insurance coverage for birth control if they conflict with the employer’s religious beliefs. The ruling on Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. is not only a blow to the Affordable Care Act but also, critics argue, to women’s rights.

Here’s what women need to know:

1. If you work at certain types of for-profit companies, they no longer have to cover the cost of any contraception that they say violates their religious beliefs

The Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare) requires most health insurance plans to cover birth control without cost-sharing. Without healthcare coverage, the pill can cost about $25 a month and an IUD (intrauterine device) can cost up to $900 (though it’s inserted once and lasts up to 12 years).

Before the ruling, houses of worship were already exempt from…

An open letter to President Barack Obama


Dear Disappointed former supporter. While I can appreciate your concerns for the problems in your country, I do not agree with you that our President, is responsible for solving all the problems of the world. Fix your own damn problems. Why is it when people of nations such as yours are assisted by the United States, by the way not the President, you always keep expecting more? I am sorry your country is struggling, but you can not always look to us for your easy and always unappreciated answer. The American people have grown tired of being held responsible for feeding the rest of the poor world. I do not like President Obama in the least, and unfortunately he is my president. I can not let you get away with “trying” to make him feel guilty because he shows an interest in some pride for our nations participation in the World Cup. Please, allow Americans to enjoy one of the rare moments of national pride from our President, as fake as it may be. I take offense to your criticism as it may as well have been directed at the people of my country. Barack Obama never did anything for you, it was the tax payers of our great nation. Yes Great. Just so you understand, right now I and my fellow citizens are following our soccer team with all our heart and support….and WE WILL NOT APOLOGIZE FOR ANY OF THAT. So take your begging and guilt seeking ass somewhere else.
