Another Child Suicide (or) Has Government Dependency brought us to this.

by donna merritt...
Once more we hear the sad news that another child has taken his own life because he was the subject of cruel treatment at the hands of his peers. This little boy was fourteen years old and lived in Florida.
Can you imagine yourself at that age, unable to make your own decisions, being dependant upon someone else to keep you safe and out of harms way? Can you imagine the people you love the most sending you to school every day knowing full well what you will be subjected to and you are unable to stop it?
If I try to put myself there I find it horrifying.
This isn't about parents who didn't care about their child. According to what I have heard they had moved from New York to Florida to try to make things better for their child. However, they failed to take the one step that could have offered him protection. They failed him by failing to remove him from the situation. They failed him by expecting someone else to care for his safety.  They failed him by failing to understand what government cannot do for him. Government cannot keep him safe.
Government can pass laws but unless they can enforce tthose laws they matter not.
Do you wonder why these parents, and other parents whose children have died because of bullying failed to take the one step that could have removed the threat from their child's life.
One needs not go far back (in years) in our country to find a time when the majority of people were self sufficient. Dealings with the Feds were few and far between and probably most people lived their lives without thinking about the Federal Government except in times of War. They certainly didn't expect interference in their daily lives nor did they expect their fool or housing or education or day to day safety to come from the Federal government.
Schools were local and decision making, regarding the rules and happenings in a school, was a community affair.  Any problem arising from a child's behavior was handled promply with the involvement of the parents of the children involved and the teacher.
So what is the change which has allowed so many children to be so bullied, yet forced to go back day after day into this untendable situation, a situation in which they cannot cope, until they are driven to take their own lives?
The biggest change is that government, through it's welfare state mentality, it's Nany state approach, it's "we know best what is good for you" decision making has convinced too many people that the government is always right, that the government will take care of everything, that you need not be responsible and it's not your fault, someone else is responsible for you problems whatever they may be, just go to the closest government entity and all your problems will be solved.
Too many people no longer feel responsible for or about anything and in the cases of bullying in schools they have put their reliance in the government (ie) school to handle everything.
Problem is...the government can't...
We, as citizens of the greatest country in the world, must once more become responsible. Responsible for ourselves, responsible for our children, for our livlihood, for and to our communities.
To think about a young child tryng to deal with something, far out of his//her control, and being forced, by those very people who should love him best into the situation again and again, day after day. is just too sad for words.

Obama's Welfare State of Mind

A Representative, in this case the president, has an obligation to whomever he represents. Obama was elected president with the responsibility to represent We The People.

As our representative he should have our welfare as a primary objective but does he?

"Obama's Welfare State of Mind" does not refer to the welfare state he has created in our country rather it refers to his spending, on himself and his family . The welfare state of mind, I think, is when a person spends unnecessarily using money they did not earn. In Obama's case the money is taxpayer's money and he wastes it at a time when many people  are struggling to get by. While people are losing their homes, have lost their jobs and can barely put food on the table.

I know many of you were raised as I was, to believe that you earned what you wanted or needed or you did without. Welfare was something that was not even considered. I still believe that.

To get the records of Obama's travel spending Judicial Watch had to file a lawsuit which they did in 2013. This is the "most transparent administration in history...says he.

While our economy just crawls along, high  unemployment, (if the true figures were reported it would be in the 12% range).our country suffering as it has not suffered in many years and with no serious chance of improvement in sight his spending goes on unabated.  With the middle east in flames and with the terrorist threat increasing, with scandals so numerous it becomes difficult to even list them all, and with our border totally unsecured the Obama's, like Welfare Queens live high on the hog at taxpayer expense.

In 2013 just their air travel costs, paid for by the US taxpayer,  was $7.4 million for only 3 trips. Their Christmas vacation took them  to Hawaii. Obama decided he needed to fly back to Washington for a budget deal, then back to Hawaii and then the family flew home. In August Obama flew to California where he met with  DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg for a fundraiser then appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. later in August the family flew to Martha's Vineyard for their summer vacation.

Even though Obama promised transparency a lawsuit was necessary to obtain the information. 

In addition,  the Secret Service entourage accompanying President Obama and his family during their trip to sub-Saharan Africa from June 27 to July 3, 2013, incurred $2,189,727.60 in lodging, entertainment, and security expenses alone. The cost for the Obama family for their air travel for this trip was $8,104,224. 

This trip was during the time when the government was shut down due to the sequester, remember when they closed the White House for tours. Little school children whose families had planned their summer vacations around this tour were turned away. They also closed the Veterans Memorial and shut out elderly Veterans some of whom had been flown to Washington on special flights for this special event to see the memorials.

It would seem that Obama's  special summer events were much more important than the US citizens planned events. In fact he spent their money on himself and his family and put his lavish lifestyle in first place in front of all else. His welfare, and living on money earned by someone else is certainly welfare, is uppermost in his mind.

And then there is the cost of Obama's golf outings. As of March of this year (2014) he had played a total of 163 rounds of golf. He played 27 times in 2009, 31 times in 2010, 34 times in 2011 but only 19 times in 2012 (an election year) In 2013 he upped his games to 46.  

Some costs for this year's golf outings are:  February 2014 Palm Springs, California and March 2014 Key Largo, Florida golf outings cost the taxpayers $2,952,278 for flight expenses alone.

In a March spring break trip to Key Largo Fl. the family stayed at a resort, The Ocean Reef Club. where member must have a minimum $35 million net worth to join.  This was just after  Obama’s State of the Union Address in which he focused on income inequality.

According to FOIA requests the Obama's and the Biden's have spent $40 million on travel since 2009. 

Michele rang up the single largest expense for accomodations in Dublin Ireland during the 2013 G-8 conference. The first lady and her entourage booked 30 rooms at the Shelbourne Hotel. Her ladyship's suite, a 1500 square foot extravaganza, cost us $3500 a night. Our bill (as taxpayers) for this trip was  $7,921,638.66.

Obama's job as president includes many perks that the ordinary citizen can only dream of. To list them all would be impossible but if the people we elect cannot control themselves and remember that they are working for the American citizens then spending regulations need to be put in place. If they don't realize  that they have an obligation to be ever mindful of the fact that every penny spent on themselves takes a penny away from things that could benefit the country then we, as taxpayers, are lax if we don't demand limits. 
Presidents have always had a free rein on travel expense and I have not done the research to determine how out of line this president may or may not be, that is not the point. The point is the law should impose caps on White House expense, not just travel but entertaining as well (beyond what is required for foreign dignitaries and things that benefit the country) 

As Americans to be good citizens we have an obligation to be aware of what is happening in our government from local to Federal. When we don't we allow ourselves to be taken advantage of and our way of life to be threatened.

I hope you will share this so that as many people as possible can see the truth.

What Every American Must Know

Wake up America…if it not too late!
(I received this as an e-mail, don't know who to credit)

This is all factually and historically correct - and verifiable.
if you even go back further...in 732 AD the muslim Army which was moving on Paris was defeated and turned back at Tours, France, by Charles Martell.
In 1571 AD the muslim Army/ Navy was defeated by the Italians and Austrians as they tried to cross the Mediterranean to attack southern Europe in the Battle of Lapanto.
In 1683 AD the Turkish muslim Army, attacking Eastern Europe, was finally defeated in the Battle of Vienna by German and Polish Christian Armies.
This crap has been going on for 1,400 years and half of these #$% politicians don't even know it!  If these battles had not been won we might be speaking Arabic and Christianity could be non - existent;
Judaism certainly would be. And let us not forget that Hitler was an admirer of islam and that the mufti of Jerusalem was Hitler's guest in Berlin and raised Bosnian muslim SS Divisions: the 13th and 21st Waffen SS Divisions who killed Jews, Russians, Gypsies, and any other "subhumans".

A lot of Americans have become so insulated from reality that they imagine that America can suffer defeat without any inconvenience to themselves.
Pause a moment, reflect back. These events are actual events from history.
They really happened!
Do you remember?

1. In 1968, Bobby Kennedy was shot and killed by a muslim male.
2. In 1972 at the Munich Olympics, athletes were kidnapped and massacred by muslim males.

3. In 1972 a Pan Am 747 was hijacked and eventually diverted to Cairo where a fuse was lit on final approach, it was blown up shortly after landing by muslim males.

4. In 1973 a Pan Am 707 was destroyed in Rome, with 33 people killed, when it was attacked with grenades by muslim males.

5. In 1979, the US embassy in Iran was taken over by muslim males.
6. During the 1980's a number of Americans were kidnapped in Lebanon by muslim males.
7. In 1983, the US Marine barracks in Beirut was blown up by muslim males.
8. In 1985, the cruise ship Achille Lauro was hijacked and a 70 year old American passenger was murdered and thrown overboard in his wheelchair by muslim males.
9. In 1985, TWA flight 847 was hijacked at Athens , and a US Navy diver trying to rescue passengers was murdered by muslim males.
10. In 1988, Pan Am Flight 103 was bombed by muslim males.
11. In 1993 , the World Trade Center was bombed the first time by muslim males.
12. In 1998, the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were bombed by muslim males.
13. On 9/11/01, four airliners were hijacked; two were used as missiles to take down the World Trade Centers and of the remaining two, one crashed into the US Pentagon and the other was diverted and crashed by the passengers. Thousands of people were killed by muslim males.
14. In 2002, the United States fought a war in Afghanistan against muslim males.
15. In 2002, reporter Daniel Pearl was kidnapped and beheaded by---you guessed it was a--- muslim male.
16. In 2012, the US Consulate in Benghazi was attacked and 4 Americans (including the US ambassador to Libya) were killed by muslim males.
17. In 2013, Boston Marathon Bombing 4 Innocent people including a child killed, 264 injured by muslim males.      
Don’t 4get the bombing of a US ship, The Cole!
No, I really don't see a pattern here to justify profiling, do you?
So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing us, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile certain people. So, ask yourself "Just how stupid are we?"
Absolutely No Profiling!

They must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents who are members of the President's security detail, 85-year old, Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winner and former Governor Joe Foss, but leave muslim males alone lest they be guilty of profiling. Ask yourself again
"Just how stupid are we?"
Have the American people completely lost their minds, or just their power of reason?
Let's send this to as many people as we can so that the Gloria Aldreds and other stupid attorneys along with Federal Justices who want to thwart common sense, feel ashamed of themselves -- if they have any such sense.
As the writer of the award winning story 'Forrest Gump' so aptly put it, 'Stupid Is As Stupid Does'.
Each opportunity that you have to send this to a friend or media outlet.
Pray for our Country
Have a Good Day
In God We Better Trust

I'm Not Ready For One World Order...ARE YOU ?

Are you following the recent events in Nevada regarding the Bundy family and their fight with the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) over grazing rights? Now in the past few days we are hearing about the BLM laying claim to close to 100,000 acres along the Red River which is the boundary between Texas and Arizona. This land, the Feds claim, belongs to them even though the ranchers have title to the property and have been using the land and paying taxes on it for generations.

Then there is this:  (from offgridsurvival.com)
"Two years ago, Andy and Ceil Barrie bought two pieces of land: a house in an established subdivision, and a piece of backcountry land at a higher elevation, accessible by an old mining road.
The backcountry land, which is surrounded by over 2 million acres of White River National Forest, had to be accessed with a utility vehicle because of its remote location. The couple used an old mining road dating back to the 1880s to access their land, and that’s where their problems began.
Even though the couple was using an established mining road, the U.S. Forest Service denied the couple access to their land and then the county demanded the couple sell the land. When they refused, the local county commissioners condemned an old mining cabin that was on the land previous to the Barrie’s purchase of the land, claiming it was being condemned for wiring and plumbing issues – even though the cabin had neither plumbing nor electrical wiring."
...And it goes on to how the couple were forced to give up their land. They received compensation but only enough to pay their legal fees. 
These stories should make everyone ask why our government wants all this land. Land, which if you believe the constitution, they have no right to own in the first place.  The cost, paid for by taxpayer money, is huge and growing daily. The BLM, a division of the Interior and under controlled of the executive branch of government, should not be a police agency, but it is. So why do they look like storm troopers...So why the big land grabs?
Have you heard of Agenda 21? Do You Know What is it???

UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development is the action plan implemented worldwide to inventory and control all land, all water, all minerals, all plants, all animals, all construction, all means of production, all energy, 
all education, all information, and all human beings in the world.   

 Go here to read more http://www.postsustainabilityinstitute.org/what-is-un-agenda-21.html
Also just use Google...things like Agenda 21 where did it start....what is agend21....you got the idea.

This, I would suggest, is what the land grad is all about. It has been supported by both Republican  and Democrat presidents since the 70's.
This is about government (the elites who become part of government) thinking that they know how we should live, what we should do, how we should do it. This is not new it is just now getting to the point of making itself visible

We should ask ourselves if all our media, including Fox News, are ignorant of .these things or do they too think they are above us. That they somehow were given superior minds and we were not.

There is ugliness here that you probably have no idea of. It includes controlling population by drugs given without our knowledge. It includes forcing everyone into large urban areas and making most of our country inaccessible to everyone. And much much more.
There is so much going on without our knowledge.

Are you aware that many of our National parks are under the control of the UN?

In 1972, our government signed the United Nations' World Heritage Treaty, a treaty that creates "World Heritage Sites" and Biosphere Reserves." Selected for their cultural, historical or natural significance, national governments are obligated to protect these landmarks under U.N. mandate.1 Since 1972, 68 percent of all U.S. national parks, monuments and preserves have been designated as World Heritage Sites.2
Twenty important symbols of national pride, along with 51 million acres of our wilderness, are World Heritage Sites or Biosphere Reserves now falling under the control of the U.N. This includes the Statue of Liberty, Thomas Jefferson's home at Monticello, the Washington Monument, the Brooklyn Bridge, Yellowstone National Park, Yosemite, the Florida Everglades and the Grand Canyon - to name just a few.

Again do your own Google search (es) for information.

If this bothers you I hope you will share it. We are a nation which has been dumbed down by our school system for many years and it continues. With the Common core having been implemented in many states the dumb down   project is now running like a snowball downhill and gaining momentum all the time.

I believe there are good men running for office in the coming election that can begin to turn things around but no one is going to get these people elected if we don't. It is our job to protect our country. No one else is going to do it for us.
Please do your homework on these things and if it scares you do something about it.

Political correctness may very well bury us.
Slowly news is beginning to leak out about Muslim training centers scattered throughout our country. Many of us have known about this but the media certainly doesn't want us to know.
Read the following report on Putin's take on how people who want to live in Russia should behave. Shouldn't we do likewise. If we don't soon wise up it could be too late.
I hope you will share this.
20% off coupon good thru Sunday Feb 23rd. Use code "PUTIN"
  This is one time our elected leaders should pay attention to the advice of Vladimir Putin.... How scary is that?
On August 04, 2013, Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma, (Russian Parliament), and gave a speech about the tensions with minorities in Russia :
 "In Russia live like Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia , to work and eat in Russia , should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, and live the life of Muslim's then we advise them to go to those places where that's the state law.
 Russia does not need Muslim minorities. Minorities need Russia , and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell 'discrimination'. We will not tolerate disrespect of our Russian culture. We had better learn from the suicides of America , England , Holland and France , if we are to survive as a nation.
 The Muslims are taking over those countries and they will not take over Russia . The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of Sharia Law and Muslims. When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the Russian national interest first, observing that the Muslims Minorities Are Not Russians.
The politicians in the Duma gave Putin a five minute standing ovation.
If you keep this to yourself, you are part of the problem!
  It is a sad day when a Communist makes more sense than our President Barack Hussein Obama........ but here it is !!!!

We The People

 Donna's Prime Thoughts  

Happy Monday Feb. 3,2014
There is a move within some of the Tea Party groups to form a more coercive unit by uniting under one group or to choose one leader. This would be a very positive move, however human nature being what it is, I think the move would be fraught with difficulties.

Here is a small suggestion. While it would not create a single unit, where there are many, it would provide a way for people who are Tea Party members or are in agreement with them to show their support.
This decal looks great on the back window of a car or truck and sends a message without being "in your face" like many political statements.

This  isn't political... it is American.

Our government, as set forth in our Constitution, is about  "We The People".

We are suppose to be in control . after "We The People" the power is to reside in our State Governments and then a very small portion of power, mainly the power to keep us safe, was given to the Federal Government.

We have moved way too far from what made us AMERICA and made AMERICA the best form of government ever created by mankind. Our form of government and the wealth it has allowed to be created has lifted more people out of poverty then anything else ever has or could.
