America owes more money than any country on Earth. Although we owe China a large amount, most of our debt is owed to our very own beloved Federal Reserve who graciously collects interest on its IOU’s. That Ben Bernanke….what a swell guy!
To give you an idea of why our national debt is destroying us think about this.
The United States will pay $224.8 billion in interest this year (2012) on it’s $16 trillion reckless debt.
That money could have created 4.5 million “real” jobs at $50,000/yr.
Think about that…. It would bring our unemployment to 4.9%. In addition it would kickstart American production and drive our economy into prosperity, but instead that won’t happen because our congress can keep borrowing as much as it wants from The Federal Reserve and bill you for the interest. How does that make you feel?
Our debt is destroying us and will sure destroy our kids futures. Stop watching American Idol and do something this week. It’s our duty to question our government’s decisions when they are irresponsible.
Where does the government get that $224.8 billion to pay for it’s interest bill? Yep you guessed right, you and me and every other tax payer.
Im upset with the war between Israel and Gaza. I’m upset that some of us don’t know how to treat human life with respect. I’m ashamed at what’s going on within our CIA, Washington, and our Military. I bummed that people didn’t listen to Ron Paul even though he predicts things that come true all the time. I’m concerned about our decline as a result of our debt and spending habits. I’m let down knowing that most Americans don’t care about holding the high office of congress accountable for their irresponsible actions. I’m thankful to spend Thanksgiving with my family and I’m glad taht I woke up 13 months ago. These are some of my tweets this past week.
Can you imagine if this passed as a law? 25,000 signatures needed before Dec. 11 ow.ly/fcjvS
I wish America took this man seriously instead of believing what TV said was cool ow.ly/fc60z
God have mercy on all of us. WWIII is about to begin.ow.ly/fkJNm
If we don’t enforce our rights and duties as responsible Americans, who will? ow.ly/fndkc
How would you bring peace to the Middle East?
It’s been 13 months since I took the red pill and I’ve learned how deep the rabbit hole goes ow.ly/fsx6H
I share this every Thanksgiving. I wish I paid attention in history class! http://ow.ly/fsyem
Our huge credit-bubble depression is alive a strong and this is a way to measure it http://ow.ly/fsy0J
The tensions in the Middle East are far too complex for most Americans to comprehend. What is happening in Israel and Gaza today will be written in our next generation’s history books. Who they blame will depend on where you’re from.
It’s beyond the question of whose right and wrong at this point. The Vendettas that have existed for 100′s or even 1000′s of years have permanent scars too deep to heal in our lifetime. All we can do is pray that one day everyone in the world will wake up tomorrow and realize that all this time, we were simply supposed to live a happy life while being good to one another and respecting our human race family as one.
Everyone’s god is looking upon this planet today and wondering how their children have gotten so out of control. Sometimes we all need to learn to take a step back and focus on the reasons why we were put on this Earth to begin with. It certainly was not for war or to kill one another. To me there will always be one god for all 7 billion of us and it doesn’t matter what religion you believe in.
History books about the Middle East are measured by the murders of their leaders and people. It all serves as a chess move towards an end game. Here is one of the latest chess moves (Hamas commander Ahmed Jabari killed on video) in central Gaza on Wednesday.
The strike marked the beginning of Operation Pillar of Defense to target Hamas and Islamic Jihad terror organizations in Gaza. At this point there does not seem to be an orderly government in Gaza but rather a region controlled by different gangs. As well multiple rockets hit Tel Aviv in the first attack on Israel’s commercial capital in 20 years. Many innocent civilians and children were killed in the attacks and the feud between Israelis and Palestinians has reached the next level.
Any sensible person would understand that this will ultimately lead to the extinction of one or all sides. The only way to live together in this world is to do so in peace. Children in most of the Middle East are taught or programmed to hate their enemy but who really is the enemy? What I know is that when masses are divided on beliefs there is a great possibility that both sides are wrong and right, much like the the argument of abortion. To some it’s murder of a child and to others it’s personal liberties taken away by it’s government. Strong arguments on both sides but who is right?
I certainly do not agree with the act of terrorism or murder from any group but I feel obligated to ask why each side is so angry and can there be a compromise. If there is no compromise then maybe all sides are a menace to society. America will be drawn into this conflict soon as will China and Russia and the world we once lived in will be very different in the coming years as World War III takes shape. Whether we all survive is up to us.
God have mercy on our souls and give us the strength to learn how to live in harmony.
Michael Moore recently posted a disturbing message on his Facebook site. At least it was disturbing to me. It was on election day hours before the polls were closing. Now understand, if this this was done by a person who wasn’t famous, I would be fine with it but when you are famous like Michael, I fee there is a certain level of responsibility you must take. This is what he said :
If you know someone who still hasn’t voted yet and is on the fence – and you think a personal call or text from me may help – text me their cell # at 810-522-8398. I will try to personally contact as many of them as I can in the next few hours. Every minute counts! (don’t post their cell on Facebook – you must text it to me at my personal phone number – which i guess i’ll have to change after today hahaha).
Now before you read my response, understand I do not believe in political parties. I think there are good ideas and bad ideas from both sides. I think for myself and do not require a party to tell me how to feel or vote.
This is was my response on his Facebook page
Michael Moore you are a great story teller but I find it shameful that you would use your celebrity status to influence people’s decision with a star-struck phone call. I believe you have a good heart and want to do the right thing. I know that you believe Obama (or the left) is the answer and that’s fine, I respect that, but by posting this you are no different than the PR mainstream media machine that pushes propaganda towards ignorant American’s and brainwashes them on how they should vote. Any politician that would allow over $1 billion dollars to influence their camp (mainly with school kid mentality smear ads) is un-American and immoral and both Obama and Romney did so. I understand the system forces them to play this game but we shouldn’t be encouraging people to vote for the broken system candidates or that bullshit term “lesser of two evil”. It’s still evil…Why wouldn’t you vote for good? We should be encouraging people to fix the system so this crazy amount of money called bribery will end or at least diminish greatly. I know you are against money in politics Michael (http://www.michaelmoore.com/words/mike-friends-blog/auction-2012-top-10-reasons-get-money-out) so why vote for the system that is exactly the opposite of what you stand for? Get the word out the right way, with your movies and your FB and your blog. IMO the answer is simple….just follow the constitution and stop and think before you support policies that hurt the masses. It’s called common sense and neither the democrats nor the republicans seem to have a clue about this.
If you want to inform yourself about how much money is being used to bribe candidates and where it comes from, you will have a very hard time finding it on CNN, FOX, or NBC… but you will find it here at OpenSecrets.Org
If you believe money is the root of all evil and does not help level the playing field for voters like you and me, you may want to hear what Dylan Ratigan has to say about it in this video.
Oh man…I feel so good every time I hear this video.
I ‘m writing this article out of pure frustration. Where are the True Leaders of our FREE WORLD, you know men among men. The kind of Leaders we wrote books about in awe of their dignity & integrity. Men like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Jackson, Dwight D Eisenhower to name a few.
Can you imagine President Bush, Obama or former candidate Romney meeting these Presidents of the past. What do you think they would think? These men led troops into battle, bled with their fellow Americans on the battlefield, rode horses and fired weapons, worked as farmers, plantation owners, lawyers and skilled laborers. They were also appointed many honorable positions before deserving the supreme position of all, President of the United States of America. Let’s do a Comparison.

He is also allowing the Federal Reserve to run there printing presses at 40 billion a month with Q3 adding to our never ending debt.
A leader by definition is a person who leads or commands a group or organization; A person followed by others. A leader has a vision. Leaders see a problem that needs to be fixed or a goal that needs to be achieved .
I’m not quite sure where our leaders have gone. Has America become this corrupt and blind that we allow these types of leaders to run the very country that our Forefathers bled and fought so hard for with honor integrity and moral principles.We are now a Fascist Governing nation , deep down I don’t see the intrinsic values and ethics we once had even family values are weak, American people want to stand up and believe we are a nation of freedom and greatness. Unfortunately this is a past and distant memory and this saddens me deeply- I want to believe in this country I want to defend her honor and stand proud as an American once again.
I leave you with a great quote —”Men don’t follow titles they follow Courage.” —- God Bless America.
