Standing against big government and for the people!
As I prepared to write this months article I felt a bit saddened, and found myself fighting back thoughts that we may well be on the crux of the Memorial service for the American way of life many of us were fortunate enough to know as children and young adults. A way of life where we were proud to earn what we had and even to go to the corner store and trough our earnings buy something to reward ourselves, maybe a soda or a candy bar or a snack of some kind. A time void of CD's, cell phones, and so many other items the new generation could not live without. Today I heard they were going to remove the white coral rocks on the way to Kona where so many tourists and many local folks arranged the white rocks on the dark rocks sharing their name and the undying dedication to a loved one or just placed their name. This now proclaimed eye sore was an iconic part of the trip from Hilo to Kona. It appears that someone has more money then they know what to do with and maybe if they would donate it to peoples needs it would serve a much more significant cause. Of course the realization that the minority has the ability to tell all us working stiffs what is an eye sore and what is not. I know this is seemingly insignificant to many, but this was something generation after generation would return to see their friends, families and lovers names on the rocks. Just one more agenda item that is being destroyed in the name of progress. What other shrines are going to be destroyed?
Yesterday I heard the story where one young boy of around nine was told with the rest of his class to draw a town and in the town draw in all the stores and shops as well. The young boy draws in all the shops and stores and then when the Teacher checked it she was shocked to see he had drawn a picture of a gun shop.When asked where the young man wanted to place the gun shop he told them he wanted a gun shop next to the school so if he continued to be bullied and harassed he would be able to get a gun and let the folks harassing him see what it feels like. Well, next day, the young boy comes back to class and the Police come and carry him off to a Psychiatrist. Come to find out this was not sanctioned by the school, the Teacher happened to be married to a Police Officer and she had him come take the child out of school and have him evaluated on the authority of the Teacher and himself. In the interim the child was traumatized, the school had no clue what was going on. If the Teacher was so much in fear because of things and events that had occurred in the mainland she should have taken the child to the School Counselor and the Counselor should be educated enough to know if there actually was a problem and it should have been their call whether the child should have been referred to a Psychiatrist, after discussing it with the parents.
Are the educators so in fear of their young students that they cannot think clearly so they overreact and actually create a more serious problem? Did the parents give up all their rights as have most of us because of Homeland Security and recent laws taking away our freedoms due to fear and a government hell bound on placing us under martial law? Hello Folks wake up and smell the coffee! Where is our America? Our forefathers of the revolution would be rolling over in their graves if they could see us now. I in no way like politics and must admit I have a personal disdain for money and power hungry Politicians, but I do feel we need less government and more self governing. It is time to downsize Federal Government and give back states rights!
Everything the Government touches turns out bad, look at HUD housing, we now have the more slum Lords then we ever had before HUD housing. Look at Department of Education, when will we admit it has failed seriously and is sucking us dry eliminate it and privatize, Charter schools provide a better education with less students and more Teachers who get a better wage. TSA, a real joke and a serious drain on our people, let the military do this job, they are already trained and the cost will not increase yearly. Entertainment, who needs a federal agency for entertainment? If you do not like a program at the movies or on Television, don't watch it, we don't need a government agency to tell us we do not have the freedom to watch it of not. Then there is all the monies expended to operate Green Harvest, how frigging ridiculous! I personally feel this is only a plot to keep the prices of the marijuana high so those in positions within the legal system and political offices can ensure higher profits. There can be no other reason for the efforts to eradicate Marijuana that I can see, there are more issues with legal alcohol then there could ever be with Marijuana! Now I heard some advertisements about the harmful effects of Marijuana that mirror the scare tactics of the sixties and the sad reality is mainstream society knows these are blatant lies and deception.
What ever happened to We the People and our constitution? What came of our fourth amendment rights? Why did and and so many of us Veterans go off to war leaving our families and loved ones behind putting our lives on the line in the name of freedom when we are merely free to think we are free? When you doubt this be aware your computer, phone and personal conversations may be being monitored and you have no say about it!
On a brighter note, I now have two books on line with amazon e-books, check them out and by on means read them, all the funds go to a worthy cause!
