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.
As the month of January and the new year of 2012 is in full swing, after all the holiday parties and New Years Day celebrations that we endured and enjoyed and are now behind us, we need to start to concentrate on the year 2012 but seriously. We have two important events that our country, first the United States is facing the 2012 Presidential Election, right now is the time to start and begin communicating with everybody including friends, family, loved-ones, co-workers and just about any and every stranger that is of legal voting age and start campaigning for the 2012 Republican Party and/or GOP candidate whoever it might be. I will be honest, I thought Mitt Romney was going to automatically run away with it because that is the only name that everybody mentions then comes the Iowa Caucuses the first real test for all the Republican candidates and Romney only wins the Iowa Caucus by a mere eight votes, Rick Santorum gets much needed momentum and believe it or not pulls into second place now making it a brand new race for the White House. The Republican Party and/or GOP has shown that they are divided by the final results in the Iowa Caucuses and the Democratic Party loves and enjoys when the GOP is divided because they can move, convince and/or sway good GOP voters for their candidates and especially in the upcoming 2012 Presidential election that is just too big of a risk to take because we can end up with the same unfortunate and terrible results as the 2008 Presidential election where Barack Obama won and the people of the United States were not happy with the ultimate selection. So as members of the Republican Party, we need to work very hard and start to be united and/or unified to the choice we are going for President of the United States including for upcoming Primaries and Caucuses and push the candidate as much as you can so we can bring the United States back to its proper place and return the United States Constitution as our legal system and our ways of government the way our founding fathers wanted to begin with, remember the old saying “united we stand, divided we fall” there is no further proof of real evidence than a Presidential election where as always each and every vote counts. Second the large deficit that we are facing both for the State of California and for the United States, we need to also work hard and tighten our spending belts and not waste any money if possible the deficit was not made in one day but if we all work hard by making cutbacks and reductions year after year we can lower the deficit sooner than you know it. Lets make the year 2012 a positive year as well as a financially productive year and get our country the United States moving and going towards the right direction with the right person for President of the United States.
I usually do not agree with United States President, Barack Obama and his points of view but there is an exception to this especially when it comes to Health Care Reform. A few weeks ago, I was in the hospital for six days to have Surgery now I knew that being in a hospital was expensive I just did not realize how expensive it is until I received the hospital bill, add to that the bill from the Medical Doctor that performed the Surgery and add to that a bill from the company that took X-Rays of me while I was in the hospital which I thought was included in the hospital bill, I was wrong the X-Ray company charges and bills the patients separately. After I added all the bills and/or invoices together the cost(s) were more that I can afford, which meant I had to go to the Social Services/Welfare office to obtain Medical financial help and assistance (Medi-Cal) a program that would help cover all the Medical cost(s) that I received while being in the hospital. I was lucky that I did qualify to get help and assistance with my expensive Medical cost(s) but what about other people in the United States that do not qualify to get financial help and assistance with their Medical bills and they cannot afford to obtain private Health care and/or private Health insurance do they just give up altogether. I strongly believe that we need to start looking at the Health Care System in this country and start reforming it so that everybody can obtain and receive Health care when they need it. When people need to start selling their personal belongings to help pay their Medical cost(s) then we have a real problem on our hands. It is time to change the Health Care System in the United States so that people do not die because of a lack of Health care and/or Health insurance while at the same time maybe help people to seek Medical attention so they can stay healthy.
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.
