Bobby Jindal at It Again

I like this posting, hope you do also?

I’ve said a number of times that President Barack Obama was in a no win situation in the form of danged if he does and danged if he doesn’t in winning both elections. Some people expected miracles with hope and change, and the President of the United States of America really doesn’t have that type of individual power as the position is a part of a system. Others sought to sabotage the presidency even before inauguration and refuse to see anything positive. People with any type of contact with me whether from writings, classrooms, occupational or as a friend, know that I focus on Congress for both good and bad, since so much power, especially in regard to domestic affairs, resides in that branch. The shrinking and sadly disappearing of individuals in both Chambers who could work across the aisle is a major problem in my opinion. Party labels mean…

Short note

I know, an impossibility for this blabber mouth, or in this case hand.

An Apology again!

:-(

As distasteful as this is for me and I pray that you believe this, I had to, I hope temporally, un-friend a follower.

The reason to write this is that I want it to be clear why.

As stated many times in postings, I am a Retired Spiritual Teacher, with many floors I admit, how be it I keep trying.

This person, I found out after the facts is an Atheist and again, as you my friends and I hope followers, know by now, your religious beliefs are never a reason not to be my friend, at least as far as I am concerned?

However, the constants use of foul language, nudity, not counting museum pieces as in statues, and a constant bashing of my beliefs will always be!

In this case language, you are free to write as you wish, I am free to not enjoy seeing it?

Everyone slips now and then, we are all human unfortunately, and as another human I understand and slip also.

I pray for your understanding, although, it is not making it any easier to have done this.

AHO

The Week

China rules out open elections for Hong Kong, the St. Louis Rams cut Michael Sam, and more.

1. China denies open elections for Hong Kong
China’s legislature on Sunday ruled out the possibility of holding open nominations to elect Hong Kong’s new leader, a shocking move that could precipitate a deepening divide between the city and the mainland. The restrictions, outlined by the National People’s Congress Standing Committee, would allow for the first direct election in Hong Kong in two years. Yet prospective candidates would first need to be approved by Beijing, leaving China with a crucial role in determining who would and would not be allowed to lead. “It’s certain now that the central government will be effectively appointing Hong Kong’s chief executive,” Alan Leong, a member of the Hong Kong Legislative…

A Canadian’s View On Our Disrespect Of President Obama’s Presidency

America – He’s Your President for Goodness Sake!

By William Thomas

There was a time not so long ago when Americans, regardless of their political stripes, rallied round their president. Once elected, the man who won the White House was no longer viewed as a republican or democrat, but the President of the United States. The oath of office was taken, the wagons were circled around the country’s borders and it was America versus the rest of the world with the president of all the people at the helm.

Suddenly President Barack Obama, with the potential to become an exceptional president has become the glaring exception to that unwritten, patriotic rule.

Four days before President Obama’s inauguration, before he officially took charge of the American government, Rush Limbaugh boasted publicly that he hoped the president would fail. Of course, when the president fails the country flounders. Wishing harm upon…

Comment by John: “It is something you would think the Right Wing of American Politics would have learned by now . . . but alas!

When many radical righties get their hands on “Reality” their first impulse is to revise it . . . but in the long run it never quite works out for them because the American People are a lot smarter than to be taken in by such deceptive manipulations of fact . . . such re-invention of reality.

I think that fact about American Perceptions bodes well for the future because it could eventually spell the end of Rightie Extremism’s political agenda . . . an agenda which I believe is nothing short of totally annihilating American…

Police volunteer to clean up yard

Lending a hand in LEESBURG

The home’s owner is blind and some of the yard growth had gotten out of control.

Ditching their blue uniforms for work clothes, the officers mowed the lawn, trimmed the hedges, cleaned the carport and conducted other small renovations and cleaning at the Flatwoods Road home, which sits on the outskirts of the city off State Road 44.

Has the King Left the Building?

You go man, “Florida Senator Bill Nelson”!
Our own Florida Senator Bill Nelson is outright livid about this whole idea, knowing exactly how much Florida has to lose if it happens and said that if does happen, he wants every single one of their restaurants removed from every Military Base in the United States.

I did not want  to write about this, ever.

As of right now, I guess I’m still living in denial.

But there it was in my mail this morning, the ugly news that was crystal clear.

Burger King is leaving its home state of over 50 years here in Florida and moving everything to Canada to avoid taxes?

Say it isn’t so, I beg you BK.

Whenever we are out running errands and get hungry, BK is usually my first choice because they have one of my favorite fast food combos, an awesome Veggie Burger accompanied by scrumptious sweet potato fries.

But, if this deal, this merger, does, or has already happened, there goes any hope I might have of finding a Veggie Burger on the run.

We have a few Burger Fi’s starting up here now and they have a nearly Organic Veggie Burger, that is out of this world, but the nearest one is nearly 45 miles away in Winter…

If you need a shower Native America

Another way that non-natives can get confused and confuse others, by their own words!

AMHQ with Sam Champion

http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/tv-movies/amhq-sam-champion-tv-review-article-1.1724567

http://www.weather.com/tv/tvshows/amhq/main

Sam’s new weather program is an interesting, to say the least, way to do the weather/sports/news and ABC made a big mistake not doing so while they still had Mr. Champion with them.

However, their new weather girl still is in need of a little tweaking every once in a while!

The weather girl on the Weather Channel is on the Warpath once again!

While doing the weather for New York/Philadelphia and talking about,

“A Native America Festival”

It sounded like she said,

“Native America in need of a shower there is one coming through”?

It’s a Native American Gathering and we do take our showers?

P.S.

It is an all America festival, not Native American?

(GIVING BACK)!

Vehicle-Registration Fees (SB 156)

How is he making out?

While you are drooling over the white wash tax money?

Governor Rick Scott of Florida is buying your vote once again!

So, how is he making out?

While you are drooling over the white wash tax money that he is promising to give back, remember the two very important words

(GIVING BACK)!

He took it and much, much more after those faults promises just to get elected the first time.

So, if he took it away once,

GUESS WHAT???????????????

Those ads stating that he took from our schools to give to the rich, himself included, it the truth!

Not only that, he and our state congress are still taking from our Public Schools Systems to give to their money-making Charter School System!

Yes, I said “Money making Charter Schools,” because they all have interest in Charter schools!

Money in their pockets at the expense of your children and grandchildren!

Our Manatees are in your hands

Happy Holiday everyone.

Tomorrow is the last day to help the Florida manatees win a fight for their lives fighting against MONEY!

Let’s face it my friends, this is a ‘Twofer Test’ to see if more humans care about beautiful, poor, harmless, gentle, giants, that cannot defend themselves, or will the Florida Fish and Wildlife be bought out by boaters?

If there is any way or anytime to spare, please try to get through?

Please Write?

http://www.savethemanatee.org/aa_fws_downlisting_7-14.html

As posted earlier, of the people who were able to get through to write their opinion on this, it is reported that the vote is overwhelmingly in favor of keeping our manatee safe!

Now time will tell to truth?

Because as you know, in this state “Money Talks, All else Walks”!

http://sachemspeaks.wordpress.com/2014/08/31/manatees-may-soon-lose-endangered-species-status/

The Fish and Wildlife Service is considering changing the manatee’s status from endangered to threatened.

As part of that process, the agency is seeking public comment on its finding that a petition to reclassify the manatee has merits. The deadline for comments is Tuesday. The majority of the more than 700 comments submitted so far urge the government to keep the manatee listed as is.
