MORE Power To The President.?

There are a few American politicians who are either stupid, incompetent or both. These people never give up trying to change our government - whether it needs it or not. They purposely ignore, avoid or disregard following the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights and other founding documents. Their intent is destroying America's carefully balanced trilateral system, diminishing the effects of the Free Market, and eroding our position as a world leader. 

And we, you and I, LET THEM DO IT.  

The extremists, radicals, and social engineers have moved in to rebuild our government by imitating the failed European Socialist models. It makes no sense whatever. Forgotten in the wind is the fact that socialism alone does not work, and their notion that a larger and growing government should control more and more aspects of an individuals life is CONTRARY to our American tradition. 

(1)  This week our President specifically ordered the assassination of an 
      American citizen: 
  • who was not charged with a crime, and 
  • who was not given due process in our courts.
I don't remember any instance of a former President authorizing the murder of an American citizen. When did we give the President the power to do so?

(2)  President Truman authorized the use of the Atom Bomb on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Innocent non-combatants were exterminated and  Americans accepted fact because of the million (or more) allied soldiers saved. Does that excuse the act? 

(3) Was it in Eisenhower's time that the idea of "state dominoes" was first suggested?  If a nation accepted Soviet Communism those nearby would fall like dominoes. Is this why America felt responsible to defend South Viet Nam? Was it worth thousands of American lives - or wrong in the first place?

(4) It was during the period between WWII and the end of the Korean conflict that the "Cold War" began. Thousands of nuclear weapons were produced and stockpiled. The theory was that both enemy's would destroy each other if a war was to start. Detente? Or baloney? 

(5)  President  Eisenhower, at the end of his term, warned America of the increasing danger of a "military-industrial complex". Civilian industries had hired thousands of representatives to LOBBY government personnel and influence where contracts were placed. 

Should we not consider limiting or controlling lobbyist power?

Work in process. More to come

And here it is. Please read Maggies blog outlining the quiet destruction of America's military services. This is more than alarming!

It's downright anti-American.

We all know that there are serious problems with ou American political system. The federal government and national media have been telling us that we continue to lead the world in just about everything. Unfortunately, we do not. Measuring our status against other nations is difficult as it entails comparison of different attributes and characteristics. Comparisons are, at best, crude.  Surely, if we look, it's clear that America is no longer dominant among the world's communities. 

For decades following the 1929 economic depression, America has enriched foreign industries at the expense of our own. We have subsidized foreign military powers while allowing the depletion of our own. We've defended other nations borders while, at the same time, not defended our own. We've spent trillions of dollars to subsidize unworthy governments, and let our own infrastructure to fall into disrepair. 

The use of our economic power as a diplomatic tool may have been the correct thing to d…

Cruel and Thoughtless . . .

A disheartening situation has hit our family. A cousin, one that we don't know very well, has reached 93 years of age. Most of the Chapman family made it to the mid 80's, but Mary Lou Chapman has managed a few years more. And, she's not gone yet. Mary was unmarried her entire life. She grew up in a good home, was well educated, has always hd a good job, and has enjoyed pretty good health - until just a few years ago. While she is still very much alive, I sometimes speak in the past tense as if she had already died. Mary is either confused or in her own little world now. She began losing some of her sparkle a few years ago. At first it was mild memory loss, and then mild hearing loss, and then drifting in her speech as she lost track of what she wanted to say. Her Doctor said it was a mild dementia coming on with old age, and nothing to worry about yet. A few month's passed by before she began to have problems driving herself to the market and appointments and so forth,…

Mark Turner - Another Look

MARK TURNER.  I'm an interested ex-corporate exec., now retired, and have little to contribute to this. Perhaps you can help? At first I thought Mark's story was so complicated it couldn't be true. I discovered later that  Mark's business may indeed have  generated as much money as he said it did. His story is long and complicated, but regardless of his guilt or innocence, there is definitely  something wrong with the legal process he encountered. Maggie Thornton says his business dealings were honest. I'm not thoroughly convinced, but she may be right.  There is no question that he was improperly sentenced in one court, and deserves an appeal process in another. 

I have received several comments from a blogger named "Anonymous". He (or she) has chosen to remain unknown but clearly has an inside track to information about Mark's problems. I have removed my original speculations from this blog and regret there were so many errors. Sorry folks, my fault…
