A few days ago, I was reading this news story in a local newspaper and it was a story about a young girl in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania who got bullied and ridiculed from her high school Geometry teacher for wearing a pink colored support “Romney-Ryan 2012” campaign t-shirt there was nothing rude, indecent or dirty about it, it was just a regular t-shirt with the “Romney-Ryan 2012” campaign logo on it. The high school instructor yelled and screamed at the young lady to get out of her classroom and change clothing while at the same time making such ridiculous and idiotic remarks like comparing Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan to the Klu Klux Klan, sorry I do not see any connection or collaboration there. The young lady did not budge or move at all and stood her ground it is her God given right to freedom of expression and no one and I strongly repeat no one has any right to tell you and/or force you to think differently. The father of this sixteen year old high school student is filing a formal protest and both he and his daughter want the high school geometry teacher fired for such immature and bullied behavior, in my point of view I hope that teacher does get fired we do not immature teachers and/or instructors that do not accept the freedom of expression from people in general but especially from young people. We need teacher and instructors that are open-minded and also listen, respect and accept different thoughts and points of view we all do not have to think the same way as well we do not have to look the same way. The high school geometry teacher when confronted by school officials about her immature and sporatic behavior just said “This was just a joke and I meant nothing by it” that is a line that every immature bully uses. My message to the immature high school geometry teacher would be this; grow up and stop pushing and bullying people because of the clothes they wear the joking and bullying are over. I think this should be a universal message leave people alone with the clothes they are wearing if they want to wear Obama-Biden 2012 campaign clothing attire or Romney-Ryan 2012 campaign clothing attire it is their right in this beautiful country of ours to do so and they can wearing their selected clothing attire with my blessing.
A few days ago, I was on my Facebook account and one of my friends posted a message that said; “I do not appreciate ruling by fear– nothing but a bully! Ooh! makes me so mad! Now I have to pray for him.” I assume that they were talking about United States President, Barack Obama and probably some rule, law, and/or regulation that he wants to pass and is making a big stink about it. I guess I need to clarify some things about politics and the system of government in the United States, we are a Democracy, we started as a Democracy and will continue as a Democracy by the thoughts and wishes of our Founding Fathers and the United States Constitution. President Obama (unlike other past Presidents of the United States) thinks he has the power to dictate new laws and regulations including maybe inputing a new budget with only the sound of his voice and the power of his signature with a pen to make it into law instantly. Fortunately (and I mean that honestly and sincerely) that does not take place it has to go to the other branch of government that we have the Legislative branch which is the United States Congress and the United States Senate, they have to see what the President would like to introduce and make into law that way the branches of the United States Government work together and cooperatively to see if it is best for the people of the United States. This is simple United States Government class, no branch of the United States Government can have more power than the other two maintaining the checks and balances system which so far has worked wonderfully. The President of the United States cannot be a bully or a dictator because he will be stopped at his tracks before his plans, ideas, or actions come into play without it first being looked at and reviewed by the Legislative branch. I understand that a lot of you are very worried at all the disarray that Barack Obama has done as our Commander In Chief, to which I say relax he cannot change our system of government from a Democracy into a dictatorship. We as a great nation have worked to hard to let that happen especially the United States Military and Veterans who some have given their lives to maintain our freedom. In closing I would like to say remember that the President of the United States only serves a four year term and after that he is finished unless we re-elect him again which in this case I am strongly against it and we need a President and a Leader who will continue to maintain our system of government which is made “With the People, By The People, and For the People” and that is how it should always be.
