I don’t want to wait until its too late if an Ebola outbreak does occur here in the U.S. , but you need to know what your government is doing.  Just so you know.   They have a tendency to keep things from us.

From the Blacklistednews.com

“The U.S. government will begin testing on people an experimental Ebola vaccine as early as September, after seeing positive results from tests on primates, according to media reports on Thursday. The National Institutes of Health’s infectious disease unit is working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to put the vaccine into trial as quickly as possible, according to CNN and USA Today. The director of that unit could not be reached for comment.”

Hopefully this is one of the few things our government gets right.   Our government agencies don’t have a particularly good history.



Our voices are being heard, sometimes we have to shout to see the evidence of that; but stay patient you are a force.

I believe our tweets and blogs may be the greatest factor of raising awareness.  We can not count on the national or even world media to accurately inform us.  I am also not so naive to believe everything from a tweet or blog.   But usually where there is a lot of smoke, there is a fire.  Keep digging to find the truth.

We are beginning to see a bit more news coverage from the major networks on the Southern border immigration issue here in the U.S.   I believe action from our government and president is in part due to the public outcry.  A lot of that comes from right here on what we write and share with our followers.   They also know we vote!

This morning our local St. Louis news gave immigration a stunning 2 minutes, with video.   Not a big deal you say?  That’s up by about  one-and-a-half minutes.  Will be interesting to see what the national TV will release.  Hopefully I haven’t missed already.

My point is we can make a difference.   I know the stance on illegal immigration is mixed even split, but if we remain active our government will, sooner or later respond.   It may not go the way you or I want it in the end, but stay vocal…..this is our country.   We are the voice of awareness.


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.
