Quote from Rand Paul in the Tribune Courier today: “The good news is your government is opened up again. The bad news is your government is opened up again,” Paul said. “We’re borrowing about $1 million every minute. We’re set to borrow, in the terms of this president, as much as all of the previous presidents combined.” Anyone else hear the alarms going off?!
I have to quote Obama for you, from the speech he made today, because bold-faced lying cannot slide by without being pointed out, not even from our very creative, word-spinning president. This is the sentence he had the nerve to utter during another long, drawn out speech full of inaccuracies: “The health insurance that’s being provided is good. It’s high quality and it’s affordable … We know that demand is there. People are rushing to see what’s available.”
Let me define ‘demand’ for our leader: an insistent and peremptory request. That would be the word request, right there in the definition. Now, let me define ‘law’ for our potus: the system of rules that a particular country or community recognizes as regulating the actions of its members and may enforce by the imposition of penalties. ‘Imposition of penalties’ clearly takes both our demand & our want out of the equation! This is coming from the guy we trust to have our best interest at heart yet he speaks to us as though we don’t have a brain to share between us. He’s hardly building a great America under his leadership, but he sure is tearing one down.
Keep your eye on him, he’s not done…..by far.
As much as we are concerned about America, we are just as concerned for Americans. There are a couple of things I would like to mention just for the safety/security potential. Even if you’ve already heard these things & they sound simple, I hope you find doing them will be even more simple.
1. Your new best friend is your car alarm! That little button on your key chain can go far if you find yourself in danger. Keep your finger on it in a dark parking lot…footsteps closing in?…Set it off! Someone trying to car jack you? Set it off! In your home at night and someone is breaking in? Set it off! Many more uses, too! This little contraption is GOLDEN!
2. Now that we’ll be speeding into shopping season, keep your eye on EVERY receipt when paying with a bank or credit card! Cashiers at several different retailers have become pretty tricky in requesting cash back on YOUR transaction & slipping the money in their very greedy little pockets. Unless you glance at your receipt, you probably won’t notice because they tend to stick close to the $20 range. If you do notice, they’ll tell you it was a machine glitch (yeah, in their favor)! Get a supervisor, file a complaint. If they can’t earn the American Dream, they damn well have no right to steal yours!!!
Be safe out there and take care of each other… Jeni
