No one deserves a pass when lives are at stake.  I will not give anyone a pass.  I do not care
the color of your skin or the position you may have, you will NEVER receive a pass or any excuse
for your actions.  Not now, not ever!!

President Barack Obama made a statement about Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. and
Mr. Gates’ arrest.  
I have heard some say that Obama was in error when he said the police
acted "stupidity."  I have heard from both Blacks and Whites that Obama should have declined to
answer the question.  Well, he answered the question and now so what?  I do not care!  So what?  
Everyone says many things that should have said, but they are still living; it is life and life will go
on.  I do not have any qualms about what Obama said as I do not view it as an important issue; at
least not at the moment.

    Alternatively, I do care that President Obama
    reminded america that there is still a problem with
    race in THIS country.  In addition, we should
    make note that just because he is the president of
    a white country, does not mean that racism does
    not exist.  Some people have already forgotten
    about the 60 or so Black children who were
    booted in Philadelphia.  Quick reminder:  The
    Creative Steps Day Camp paid more than
    $1900 to The Valley Swim Club.
The Valley Swim Club is a private club that advertises open membership. But the campers’
first visit to the pool suggested otherwise.  "When the minority children got in the pool all of
the Caucasian children immediately exited the pool."  
Horace Gibson, parent of a day camp
child,wrote in an email. "The pool attendants came and told the black children that they did
not allow minorities in the club and needed the children to leave immediately." The next day
the club told the camp director that the camp’s membership was being suspended and their
money would be refunded. "There was concern that a lot of kids would change the
complexion … and the atmosphere of the club,"
John Duesler, President of The Valley Swim
Club said in a statement.

That was just 14 days ago!  There are many newsworthy cases of racism but is not reported.  
Racism is alive.  It did not take a holiday, but is ongoing and it has not and will not end with a
Black man as President of these divided states.

Nevertheless, racism is not the issue; at least not at this time.  It is going to be here but what about
healthcare as well as increasing energy and food prices?  Will we, The People of the united states
of america continue to be forced to pay high medical premiums?  Will congress go on vacation
before they tackle and succeed in healthcare reform?  The american people need a recess!  A
recess from increasing medical bills?  A recess from increasing water and electricity bills!  A
recess from increasing food prices – namely dairy products!  Recesses from seeking jobs that are
not there!  Will we continue to struggle while our government sees no reason to do the job we
hired them to do?  The american People need a break!

Our united states government officials Will Pass…On The american People
Oh, but the President of these divided states along with congress, senators and all present and past government officials
do not have any worries.  They do not need a break when they do not have our problems.

    The president said it is not about him as he and everyone in congress
    already have affordable healthcare.  And I’ve said it more than once – in
    fact, I’ve lost count how many times I’ve said it, but I’ll say it again:
    when it’s not their problem, it’s not a problem.  ALL of our government
    officials receive lifetime benefits, so what’s the big deal?  Perhaps all of
    us regular everyday citizens should become government officials so we
    too could have lifetime benefits.

    President Obama said he is working with congress and other finance
    committees to find money to help with the nations’ problems.  Well, what
    about the $4,000,000,000 we spend on secret service to protect former
    presidents?  What about SOME of that money?
Are they not already receiving lifetime benefits?  Why not spend some of that money on those individuals who are
struggling to pay their bills.  Simply, we need to spend that $4,000,000,000 on The People and allow former presidents pay
for their own protection.

Seems like a waste to me and I know I am not missing the fact that when presidents leave office, they simply say that are
going to live a regular live… the average ol' Joe.  Well, the average Joe is not relying on nor receiving special protection.  
Instead, we rely on our local police department, but even here in Denver, Colorado, they are scarce.  Money is tight all
over, but we The People are surviving with local protection.  I believe they should use the secret service to protect the
last president who just left office, but the rest of them should be on their own; like the average everyday american.  This
should be standard for all presidents. When Obama is no longer president, then George W. Bush will no longer receive it.

In the mean time, I will not excuse Barack Obama, our senate, congressional members, or any of our government
officials from refusing to stay in the fight; fighting for The People.  I voted for them to work for ME, and I REFUSE to
grant them a vacation they did not earn.  (Personally, I cannot recall the last time I took a vacation.  I wish I would!  It is
too expensive!  If I did, I would be sitting and living with the other unfortunate people who were forced into foreclosure.)

    While people continue to pay increasing medical premiums, our elected
    officials are taking a vacation.?  Who is upset by this?

    While so many americans fret over the necessities, our elected officials
    receive lifetime benefits without a care in the world.?… as if this is some
    type of game? …to pussyfoot around?  Healthcare is not the only
    problem our elected officials should be talking about, as it is just one of
    many concerns.

    I know I do not and will not attempt to speak for all americans, but I will
    continue to show respect for all americans who are severely effected by
    this economy.  I will continue to use lower case "a" when typing
    "american" and lower case when typing "the united states."
(I will not use a capital "A" until america's government work for ALL americans.)

Until our elected officials actually PROVE that they are working for The People, then I will continue to wave my flag
upside down!

NO! It is not a display of disrespect for my country. Hardly, but instead is in respect and deep concern for The People.  
Until The american People have the means of saving themselves, my flag will remain in its current position.

    We need to pray!  Pray that our elected officials will do their jobs as they
    were hired to do.  Pray that people will be able to hold on just a little
    longer.  Pray for those who do not have money to pray for cancer
    treatments and other medications.  Pray for those who do not have
    enough to bury their love ones who were not able to survive the pain.

    Obama said he used to pray several times a day but says he now prays all
    the time.  Well, thank you, Mr. President.  Please continue to pray and
    we will be doing the same.  In addition, please remember the victims and
    survivors of hurricane Katrina, those in Afghanistan, Iraq, our wounded
    soldiers, and families of the many casualties of all wars and hostage
    victim Pfc. Bowe R. Bergdahl.  Please pray for all our soldiers who risk
    their lives while battling in america's wars but return home maimed, and
    mentally and emotionally disabled but if they "look" and/or "appear"
    physically able, get sent back to the front lines.
Oh and please say a prayer for Troy Davis, Gary Graham aka Shaka Sankofa, Jamie and Gladys Scott, their families as
well as Tina, and all the other people who are trying to hold on to their jobs while needlessly suffering with chronic and
terminal illness.  Please remember all of us who are disabled, who live on the street, our senior citizens and everyone who
is forced to live paycheck to paycheck.

Please pray; pray without ceasing!  For we know that if you continue to pray for us, you and our other elected officials
will stop receiving a pass.

This is america's government!
How many americans would be better off?
The american people do not have the means to save themselves
AGH!

    Although you made some valid points, I do not care much for your article. The rest of the website is
    extremely good.

    HaterLover,
    Thanks for the reply.  Perhaps you do not like the article because it was poorly written.  I am doing
    my best to improve.

  • body building equipment
    obviously I like your website however you have to test the spelling on several of your posts. Several of
    them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to tell the reality on the other hand I'll
    definitely come back again.

    Body Building,
    We will check for any spelling errors. Thanks for letting us know!

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is
    important and all. Nevertheless think about if you added some great visuals or video clips to give your
    posts more, pop! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this site could certainly be one
    of the best in its field. Good blog!
    Friday, February 1, 2013 4:05 PM
    Water damage cleanup,
    We could not agree more about adding additional clips and other ideas, but most of us are working 9
    to 5 jobs.  (We certainly cannot afford to give up our day jobs until some of our other plans pan
    out.)  However, if you have time, you might find some pages of interest as provided by our
    contributors such as some of our family's video clips, Love Lyn Bath & Body for products to treat
    your body and/or Bible Stuff for your spiritual walk with God.  In addition, please view our site map
    page to find additional information.
    Thanks for your suggestions and comments!

    First of all I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I
    was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had difficulty
    clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Appreciate it!

    What a material of un-ambiguity and preserveness of valuable familiarity regarding unpredicted feelings.

    Gayle,
    I am not sure if you like or dislike my commentary but I hope that you get my point on the fact that
    our government takes a pass on the people.  We hired them to work for us, not to take us for
    granted.
    Thanks for your post!
