Destroying the American Dream!

Who’s Destroying the American Dream?

The Progressive Liberals, ANTIFA Anarchists, Black Lives Matter Racists and the apathy filled iGeneration who live their lives in their smart phones are ruining this country and the spineless politicians are helping them do it.
 
I just watch a guy trying to prove that the National Anthem is suspect because some Neo-Confederates wanted the Star Spangled Banner to be the National Anthem. He admits the song isnt’ racist and there’s no issue with the words. He’s a guy looking to create a controversy so he can get his 5 minutes of fame.
 
I also just watch a guy defend the City Council in College Park Maryland who just voted to allow Illegal Immigrants to vote in local elections. Local elections impact statewide elections and they impact federal elections. What are they thinking? They’re thinking they’re adding democrat voters. That’s the whole reason the Democrats are totally in favor of open borders and giving illegal immigrants amnesty and citizenship. This is their long game and they’re taking steps to make it happen.
 
With very few exceptions, the Republicans in Congress are a bunch of spineless self serving MORONS! They could care less about what the voters want. They only care about what they can do to keep getting elected to a job where they spend more time OFF THE JOB, than on the job and they get all kinds of perks and get treated like Royalty.
 
They aren’t afraid of the voters because they know that they can lie to us every election and most of the Sheeple (people that are sheep in case you haven’t figured that out) will still vote them back into office, or they’ll vote in some other MORON that lied to them and doesn’t plan on doing anything to make our lives better.
 
I’m tired of both parties and politicians in general. They have proclaimed themselves the “Ruling Class” and we are their subjects. We are to be subservient to them and let them do whatever they want because “THEY KNOW BETTER THAN WE DO ABOUT WHAT’S BEST FOR US”. BULLSHIT! Most of them couldn’t run a household or keep a steady job where they actually will be fired if they fail to perform the job the way it’s supposed to be done.
 
Here’s an example: Emergency aid for Katrina and Harvey. Did they vote on a clean bill to provide the aid that was needed? No! They loaded the bill with their pet pork projects because they knew the bill would be passed. They feathered their nests at the expense of the suffering masses who have lost their lives, their homes, they property, their jobs and their American Dream. They don’t really give a shit about the people in Texas or Florida. They view their misfortune as a way for them to take care of the really important people.. THEMSELVES!
 
We have a President, like him or don’t like him, I don’t care. He’s trying to get health care fixed, overhaul the tax system and secure our borders to we actually have a sovereign nation and even his own party leaders won’t support him. We can support what we can agree on but they can’t even do that because they “WON’T STICK THEIR NECKS OUT AND ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING BECAUSE THEY MIGHT NOT GET RE-ELECTED. Getting re-elected is the most important thing to them. We hired them to work for use and now we’re working for them. If I did my job the way they do their job I would have been FIRED a long time ago and with such a poor work ethic and lack of integrity, I’d find it hard to get a job anywhere.
 
I can make common cause with anyone. I may disagree with a progressive liberal on 50% of what they believe, but that means we agree on 50% of what we both believe. We can work with that. In order to do this, both sides need to be willing to listen to that which they agree with as well as that which they disagree with without attempting to shut down the conversation.
 
RANT OVER! I’m sure many of you feel the same frustration I have with our worthless elected officials.. and here in Arizona, that category includes John ‘Worthless RINO” McCain and Jeffy “Little John McCain” Flake.

Democrats plan for taxpayers to pay for student loan debt! BULLSHIT!

Time for another Rant! The Democrats think that the taxpayers should pay for the student loans that the entitled generation voluntarily agreed to because it’s just so much money and it’s unfair that they have to pay it back.

Well, it’s unfair that I owe $140,000 for my house so I want the taxpayers to pay for my mortgage and I’ll get to keep my house… why? Because the little cupcakes whining about their student loans they ran up for such idiotic degrees that have absolutely no job prospects in our society get to keep the education they received for the rest of their life.

If we’re going to pay for their education, well, we can’t remove what they learned so the only other thing we could do is to repossess their diplomas so they couldn’t use them to get a job with the education they refused to pay for. After all, that’s only fair. If we’re going to pay for it, they shouldn’t get to make money off it.

The Democrats socialism is all well and good until they run out of other peoples money.

If you think I’m being unreasonable, then why don’t you find a cupcake with a student loan and pay for it with your money and let me keep mine. I have no benefit from their education so its just financial confiscation to benefit bad behavior and bad choices.

I call BULLSHIT! You signed on the dotted line for the loans, you pay them back! Grow up, be an adult and finally take responsibility for your actions. There are no participation trophy’s in life!

Judge By A Persons Actions, not their Race or Profession!

This is a very serious post and it has nothing to do with politics. What it has to do with is how we perceive our world. with the recent events in Dallas, I decided to ask one of my black co-workers if he felt threatened when he was pulled over by the police. Now when I get pulled over, I’m anxious because I know I could get a ticket and it can cost me money, but I’m not scared for my life or worried that I will be mistreated.
My friend confided in me that he does worry for his safety when he gets pulled over because he’s black. He may not have done anything wrong, but because of who he is, he says that he follows the police instructions to the letter and will not make a move without telling the officer exactly what he’s going to do in response to what the officer told him to do. I think most of the “White Privilege” talk is bullshit, but I have to admit that I haven’t been raised to fear the police and that most likely is because I’m white. So if that can be considered White Privilege, then that’s the extent of it because I’ve busted my ass for everything I’ve gotten and nothing was handed to me.
I will say this as well. I do get scared for my safety when I am in a situation where I am out of place.. ie: in a neighborhood that I’m not supposed to be in because I’m not black or hispanic and it’s an uncomfortable feeling to be sure and may be of my own imagination but I can’t tell. To have to live with that fear when it’s the police that are supposed to protect us is something that I can only imagine…. and I have spent time doing just that.
There are racist police out there that will take advantage of a situation, and there are police out there that are scared they won’t make it home to their family because they’re a cop and they’re a target now so they may be more likely to take action in anticipation of what they believe will happen to them.

Wanting to kill all cops because a few bad cops have broken the law and committed murder and should be tried and sent to prison if guilty is the same as saying that all blacks should be treated as criminals because some blacks commit crimes.

Judge the person, not the race or the profession! Until we make people assume the responsibility for their actions and hold them accountable and only them, we will never get past this. Children should not be told to fear the police, but when that’s what their world is like, then they are told that for survival and it’s our shame that we’ve caused that to happen.

Don’t judge me because I’m white. I didn’t own slaves and I’ve never mistreated anyone of any race or religion etc. Judge me for the person I am and only what I do.

Rant over.. please think about it! I hope it makes some sense.

JotForm.. The ONLY choice when you need Easy to Use, Visually Appealing and Trackable Results!

Posted by in My Tech World

I work for a large tech company and we build websites just like many other tech companies do. We build great looking sites with lots of functionality but one area is really lacking any features for our customers.  Our form tool like many others is very basic and when the visitor clicks submit, the form is sent but no record of the submission is kept. So what happens if there’s an email issue? You never get the visitors submission and you might be missing a great opportunity  to either get a new customer, or be informed about an issue on your website that may be causing visitors to leave your site.

When my customers need fully functional forms on their website I ALWAYS refer them to jotform.com.  Why? The jotform designer allows you to create a beautiful visually appealing form and with the tools and widgets that are just a drag and drop away, you can create a masterpiece that your customers can fill out and submit to you. Went they submit the form, JotForm keeps a copy as well as emailing you so if there’s an email issue, you can check on jotform for recent submissions.  You can see the information they submitted, and you can print it out if you need a hard copy. There’s also a reports function that will even let you create a data grid so you can share the submissions on your website so you can use them as reviews etc.

Jot form reports screen

JotForm Create new report Screen

As if JotForm wasn’t already the best of the bunch, they let you design and deploy your forms at no cost. Their free plan allows up to 100 submissions per account per month and for many people, it would be good news to have to upgrade to their economical paid plans because they’re getting so many submissions.

I’m not affiliated with JotForm other than I’m a customer and a fan. I don’t have any financial interests in the company. I’m just someone who sees the value of their fantastic product and what it can do for my customers.  My customers can go to JotForm and easily create a form, then they just email me the embed code and their new form is on their website.  Even better still… if they make a change to the form on JotForm, they don’t have to send me anything because the embed code will automatically pull in the changes and display them on their site.

One other great feature that you’d be hard pressed to find anywhere else are the conditional fields for the forms.  You can use some of their “show/hide” fields conditions or the calculation conditions  or some of the other available fields.

The bottom line: to be honest… I really wish the company I work for would buy JotForm so we could roll it into our products and stand out even more from our competitors.

OBAMA is an ISIS Sympathizer and Here’s How You Can Tell

Posted by in My World View

Mike Gallagher, a radio host and conservative political commentator is the host of the Mike Gallagher Show.  Someone wrote an essay entitled “Obama, it was you. Mike read it on his show and then posted it on his FB page at the request of many.  It is eye-opening! Here it is:

President Obama:

This is why you didn’t go to France to show solidarity against the Muslim terrorists.
It was you who spoke these words at an Islamic dinner – “I am one of you.”
It was you who on ABC News referenced – “My Muslim faith.”
It was you who gave $100 million in U.S. taxpayer funds to re-build foreign mosques.
It was you who wrote that in the event of a conflict – “I will stand with the Muslims.”
It was you who sat for 20 years in a Liberation Theology Church condemning Christianity and professing Marxism.
It was you who exempted Muslims from penalties under Obamacare that the rest of us have to pay.
It was you who purposefully omitted – “endowed by our Creator” – from your recitation of The Declaration of Independence.
It was you who mocked the Bible and Jesus Christ’s Sermon On The Mount while repeatedly referring to the “Holy” Quran.
It was you who traveled the Islamic world denigrating the United States of America.
It was you who instantly threw the support of your administration behind the building of the Ground Zero Victory mosque overlooking the hallowed crater of the World Trade Center.
It was you who appointed anti-Christian fanatics to your Czar Corps.
It was you who appointed rabid Islamists to Homeland Security.
It was you who said that NASA “foremost mission” was an outreach to Muslim communities.
It was you who as an Illinois Senator was the ONLY individual who would speak iin favor of infanticide.
It was you who was the first President not to give a Christmas Greeting from the WH, and went so far as to hang photos of  Chairman Mao on the WH tree.
It was you who curtained the military tribunals of all islamic terrorists.
It was you who refused to condemn the FT. Hood killer as an islamic terrorist.
It is you who has refused to speak-out concerning the horrific executions of women throughout the Muslim culture, but yet, have submitted Arizona to the UN for investigation of hypothetical human-rights abuses.
It was you who when queried in India refused to acknowledge the true extend of radical global jihadists, and instead profusely praised Islam in a country that is 82% Hindu and the victim of numerous Islamic terrorists assaults.
I was you who funneled $900 million in US taxpayer dollars to Hamas.
It was you who ordered the USPS to honor the Muslim holiday with a new commemorative stamp.
It was you who directed our UK Embassy to conduct outreach to help “empower” the British Muslim community.
It was you who embraced the fanatical Muslim Brotherhood in your quest to overthrow the Egyptian President Mubarak.
It was you who funded mandatory Arabic language and culture studies in Grammar Schools across our country.
It is you who follows the Muslim custom of not wearing any form of jewelry during Ramadan.
It is you who departs for Hawaii over the Christmas serson so as to avoid past criticism for NOT participating in seasonal WH religious events.
It was you who un-characteristically quick to join the chorus of the Muslim Brotherhood to depose Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak formerly America’s strongest ally in North Africa; but remain muted in your non-response to the Brotherhood led slaughter of Egyptian Christians.
It was you who appointed your chief adviser, Valerie Jarrett, an Iranian, who is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood, an off-shoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.  The above provides the basis for virtually everything Obama does.

———NOTE FROM ME NOT MIKE———-
OBAMA is an ISIS sympathizer and is a Muslim. In his religion it’s permissible to lie, cheat, deceive and do whatever you need to as long as you’re doing it in the pursuit of expanding the Islamic faith.

How My Attitude towards the LGBT Community was changed.

Posted by in My World View

Since Gay marriage is the Topic of the day.. allow me to share some insight on how I got to where I am now regarding the LGBT community. My time in high school and in the USAF taught me that gays/lesbians were there for me to ridicule and persecute and being young and stupid, I went along with the crowd without giving a thought to the fact that they were human beings. I was taught that it was a behavior and they “Choose” to be gay or lesbian so they could un-choose it if they wanted to.
Now I met a young lady when I was stationed in Okinawa and her name was Robin, and to my sorrow I learned she’s not with us any more. Robin was a great KC-135 Crew Chief and she was a lesbian. I didn’t know it until 1 day I went to her off base apartment to take her to the hobby shop photo lab to teach her how to develop her own film and slides. When I knocked on the door, a young lady answered and told me Robin would be right back. In talking with Robin later I inquired about her 2 bedroom apartment and how much it was costing her. Then she told me it was a 1 bedroom apartment and had a sly smile on her face and then I was able to put 1 and 1 together and realize that she was a lesbian. Funny thing is, It didn’t bother me because I didn’t feel that my manhood was threatened by her.
This is when my previous beliefs began to soften as I questioned why I believed the things I did.
Fast forward to Tucson, AZ. I’m retired from the USAF and I’m a store manager and I have an ex-marine working for me. He comes to me on the first day and confides in me that he’s Gay. OMG.. I’ve been exposed to a Gay marine. WTF? what am I supposed to think now. Aren’t all gays sissy boys? Mike continued my education and enlightenment and thats when i started to consider this “If it’s a choice, a behavior, who in their right mind would choose something that makes them be seen as a pariah on society and someone who is sick!”. I was having trouble justifying what I had been taught because I was dealing with “NORMAL” people. They laugh, they cry, they love, they’re good people but they’re “different from me”.
I moved to Mesa, AZ and met Frank and Fred. I consider them 2 of my best friends and think the world of them both.. but.. OMG.. they’re gay and they love each other. I then met 2 people from Colorado who pushed my previously held beliefs even further. (if I get permission, I’ll put there names in here) . One is a male in a female body and he lives as a male and I view him as a male. Just making that change in my perspective shows that I was well on my way to realizing the big truth. Robin, Mike, Frank and Fred and my good friends in Colorado have been the catalyst for me to change the way I view those that are LGBT.
So what was the big truth? Well, believe it or not it’s because of my faith in God and my religion. I realized that it was mighty presumptuous of me to think that it was my place to judge anyone for how they live their life. The phrase “Judge not, lest you be Judged” comes to mind. This change in my attitude on this social issue has also caused a change in my political beliefs and I have come to realize that I’m a “Conservatarian”. I have conservative beliefs and libertarian beliefs and I decided that God will sort out how everyone else lives their life and I should focus on how I live mine because one thing’s for sure.. I’m damn sure not perfect and my life needs all my attention.
My biggest wish when it comes to LGBT is that everyone who has an issue with it and wants to judge others… I want them to meet a Robin, or a Mike, or a Frank and Fred or a great couple in Colorado and see them as kind loving people who are struggling with the same daily problems in life as everyone else and the last thing they need is for someone else to heap their intolerance and judgement on them. Conversely, The LGBT community needs to realize that they are asking for full acceptance of a life style that many have been taught is against their religion and is immoral. I want the LGBT community to realize that Christians and other religions have a right to their beliefs even if they run against the beliefs of the LGBT. With respect for “Live and let live” the destructive personal tone of this issue will diminish and effective open communication and respect for others can thrive.
I’m no better than anyone else but I hope my story might help someone else make the transition from judging how others live their life while ignoring how they live their own to focusing on what you can control and what you are responsible for… YOURSELF!
Have a great day!

The Right to Practice Their Religion!

Lets think about the Religious Liberty law’s that are in the news these days. It seems that the only issue is with Christians that believe Gay Marriage is wrong based on their religious beliefs and because of that they don’t believe they should be forced to partake in the ceremony, be it thru photographer, baker, or caterer. So where are the stories of people going to Muslim stores and demanding the same services? Walk into a Muslim establishment and demand they cater your event at the Nudist Colony. Would this be offensive to Muslims? Sure because they have strong beliefs that women should be fully covered. A reasonable customer, one that doesn’t have a political agenda, would just go find another caterer to take care of their event. An activist would act like there’s no other place they can go to for this service and would sue the establishment, even though the owner of the establishment, business is guaranteed the practice of their religion under the Constitution. It seems to me that your rights end where they infringe upon the rights of the person you are dealing with. Strong religious beliefs should be justification to NOT have to support something that violates their religious beliefs.

I’m not advocating one side or the other but trying to point out that “discrimination” runs both ways. Not allowing someone to follow their religious beliefs would be religious discrimination. Who’s rights are more important? Well, it depends on how you look at it.. can supporting an event that goes against their religious beliefs be undone or mitigated? no. Can the person seeking the service, get the service they seek from another source? Most likely, so why would they want to deal with someone who doesn’t want their business? This isn’t so much a discrimination or rights issue, it’s an attack on “religion, well only one religion, Christianity” wrapped in a civil rights blanket. Christians are being persecuted by our own federal government and state governments because of their religious beliefs. How is that not a violation of the Constitution?

I believe in live and let live. If you don’t want my business then I will take my $$ elsewhere and make sure that everyone knows about it.

Constitutional Rights are stubborn things!

I have another question for you to ponder:  A person legally owns a firearm under the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution and lives where open carry is the law.  They want to get a pizza for dinner so they walk into an pizzeria where there’s a sign that says “NO WEAPONS ALLOWED”.  Does the pizzeria owner have the right to deny service to the person that is exercising their 2nd Amendment rights to protect themselves?  What about the rights of the armed customer?  Do business owners have the right of discretion when it comes to operating their business?  The armed customer can always have the pizza delivered, or can go to another pizzeria that doesn’t “DISCRIMINATE” against customers who are pursuing their legal right under the 2nd Amendment.
Constitutional rights are stubborn things.  They either exist or they don’t exist. What about the sign that we used to always see “NO SHOES, NO SHIRT, NO SERVICE”.  Would that be discriminating against a poor or homeless person, or is it the right of the business owner to enjoy life, liberty  and the pursuit of happiness?
The militant left and their “astro turf” grass roots movements of hatred and intolerance are doing more harm to their causes than they are doing good.  Reasonable people will say, “there shouldn’t be discrimination against anyone” but they will also recognize the rights of people to exercise their rights under the Constitution.  I have a right to NOT BE FORCED to do something that violates my religious beliefs just as I have a right to protect myself under the 2nd Amendment as long as I’m following the local, state and federal laws.
It’s time the militant LGBT community memorize the phrase “you catch more flies with honey” because when you show your intolerance and your overt hatred for anyone that disagrees with your point of view or world view, you immediately stop any form of effective dialog to address your grievances, either real or perceived.
There WILL BE A BACKLASH that will slow the progress of what you may be hoping to achieve and those that might be sympathetic with your plight, will be turned away by your ugly lack of tolerance for “DIVERSITY” and opposing views.

Diversity and Tolerance Runs Both Ways!

So lets think about the 1st Amendment of the Constitution and the meaning of Diversity and Tolerance.  Under the 1st Amendment, we have the right to free speech and religious freedom.  Diversity means inclusion of all people no matter what their race , creed , color, sexual orientation, sexual preference, or anything else.. This means ALL.. it doesn’t mean that we exclude anyone because of their  race , creed , color, sexual orientation, sexual preference, or anything else.
So why is it now common practice to exclude those that have a different opinion when it comes to anything that runs counter to the militant LGBT community.   If I”m expected to not exclude someone who has a different sexual preference than I do, and if I’m expected to tolerate  beliefs and opinions that run counter to my own, then why am I not afforded the same level of diversity and tolerance when my views and opinions run counter to theirs?
Tolerance: I will stand up for ANYONE’s right to speak/write anything that I either agree with, disagree with or that runs counter to my world view. Why? Because when you force everyone to start thinking the same and speaking the same, you are on your way to a totalitarian police state where the thought police will be in your future.   I may find what you say to be abhorrent, but since I believe in free speech, I will defend your right to say it.
Lets think about the CEO of Mozilla that just resigned because he gave a $1000 donation 6 YEARS AGO, to a pro-traditional marriage group when the Prop 8 battle was in full force. What he did was completely legal and within his rights to do.  Now, 6 years later, he is forced to resign because of his views and because he acted on his rights as a citizen of the United States and legally supported a political organization.  Where is the tolerance? Where is diversity of acceptance?
So now, lets think about our President.  Obama went to Jerimiah Wrights church and I’m sure he gave his Tithe in support of the church, and he supported the views of the church, otherwise why would he attend?  So Rev. Wright fully supports traditional marriage and Obama was in agreement with Wrights views, until he changed them recently for political reasons.  So should we expect Obama to be forced out of office because he supported a cause that was/is against Gay Marriage?
Please forgive my confusion because the outrage of the LGBT community seems to be selective and applied only when they want to have another sacrifice to the gods of intolerance and bigotry. Yes, some in the LGBT community are bigots in that they are prejudiced against anyone that sees the gay marriage issue from a different perspective.  We are expected to accept your views, but you aren’t expected to accept any view other than your own.  That’s Intolerance and you are doing exactly what you try and brand other with to destroy their lives.
The actions of the radical LGBT community does a disservice to those that have suffered the injustice of the narrow minded people opposed to the LGBT community.  Rights run both ways and equality means that all persons / groups / demographics are equal, not some more than equal than others.   It’s not my position in life to judge how others live their lives and as long as it doesn’t infringe upon my rights, then I’m perfectly fine with whatever they want to do or be.  But don’t come after me because I chose to support those causes that I agree with but you don’t.
To be clear.. yes, there are homophobes, black haters, white haters, hispanic haters, jew haters, muslim haters, christian haters, women haters, men haters and those that just hate everyone that is not a carbon copy of themselves.  I totally disagree with their world view, but they are entitled to have it and my world view shouldn’t be treated any differently than theirs just because I think mine is right.
We need to get away from Politically Correct (a term used in communist china for re-education to think like the state) and we need to celebrate the diversity of opinions and lifestyles of EVERYONE, not just those that have been historically oppressed or abused.  Bigotry of free speech and the absence of tolerance of differing opinions / world views will destroy the melting pot that is America.
