Mrs. President, Why?

Mrs. President, Why Do You Not Know What Is Going On?

The President infuriates, exasperated, and downright sickens me.  Those words give a little insight about what we as Americans have to deal with…

The first female president of the U.S. has a proven track record of not caring. She didn’t care to read the stimulus she had PROMISED to go over line by line.  She didn’t  CUT the deficit in her first term as she had PROMISED.  She didn’t keep her word about being the first transparent President.  She MISLEAD, and she LIED.   Insert here whatever word makes you feel good, but the you need to know that she is incompetent to be president of this great country, much less, overseer of the free world.

She curtsied to royalty on her trip to the Mid-East, (huh?) and she apologized for America’s “arrogance”?  I never noticed a shadow of arrogance while visiting Hong Kong, Japan, or the Philippines. What does she think about while doing such things and how did she ever become president?  Does she think America owes the world something?

I even heard some Filipinos say that they were dumb for gaining their independence from America without going to war with them first.  Wow, that was quite a statement to make but I see his point.  He went on to explain his position…”If we had gone to war with them we surely would have lost, but in losing, we would actually have won because then they would’ve fixed all that was wrong with our land.  Look at Hawaii!”

Just consider what the Americans have done for the Japanese, the Germans and so on.  Americans leave any country they go to war with in better shape than it had ever been. They financed the rebuilding of those countries after they went to war with them.  Today those countries are powerhouses of finance.  The Americans would have done the same for us.    We Filipinos are so hard-headed!  We have to be right all the time, no matter what,  We are stupid for being that way with the Americans.  Just imagine all they would’ve given us!

Be that as it may, she promotes the Muslim holidays but downplays any Christian affiliations to anything.  Why does that shock you, as I know some of you are. I mean instead of voting the incumbent in (at least you knew who you were getting; where he stood on the issues) you voted a relative unknown into office.  Every POTUS wannabe offers up, “Hope and change,” but how many have ever delivered on their promises?  There is an old saying, “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!” And in this case, those words ring true and certainly truer than hope and change.

What American’s should be up in arms about are her WILD and RECKLESS SPENDING habits that are placing America (as we know it) in grave jeopardy.  If one would only read their history and take note of all the greatest civilizations, then, there would be an understanding of the direction of this once great nation.

Let’s look at poverty under the first ever woman president…and poverty leads to fear and yes, good citizen’s of this country are scared. They are scared because of the dirty politics being used, one day this, the next day that, there doesn’t seem to be a cohesiveness, we need a leader.  God help us all.

Steve Richie

Hi folks, Two lives in one lifetime. The first me, lived to age thirty-four. That Steve was overly confident and oozing with pride. Then, on a record heat-setting day (107º) here in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota and western Wisconsin, a one car near-fatal wreck left me in a two-month long coma. I emerged much as I was before minus certain physical capabilities, but my mind seemed mostly in tact. The crash and its effects did not change me (I emerged a happy individual) but the deeds perpetrated against me in the ensuing months from my wife of sixteen years scared and humbled me as I was dragged down with nothing left by my wife who now had guardianship over all of our accounts. And neither would she allow me to see our kids. She took everything out of, "Our" names and changed them to her name only; then would not allow me to our home and divorced me. I was angry, but no more. I spent half of 1988 and more than half of 1989 in hospitals, nursing homes and a three month stint at a head-injury rehab center where I was being taught how to re-enter society as this different person, that I didn't know. I was not able to return to my previous line of work, a self-employed decorator, you know, painting and paperhanging. It was a physical job which required much dexterity, finesse, and a good grasp of numbers. I returned to the beginning, school, but on a community college level. One of the instructor's liked my writing and I began focusing my attention on that. I attended classes at, "The Loft," A Place for Writers in Minneapolis. While there, a classmate of mine was having her friend from New York, a CBS executive, to her home for the holidays and asked me if she could do a critique on a couple chapters of a book I was writing, "A Day I'll Never Remember" and I obliged. When she returned to class the following Monday she told me that the exec wanted a ten-page synopsis of the book for a possible movie; I was excited. After obliging for that also, I never saw or heard from her or the guy from CBS. Next thing I knew I was watching a movie called, "Regarding Henry" starring Harrison Ford and the scenes of therapy were exactly like what I went through and had written about. Regarding Henry - could've been my story except that, "Henry" got his head injury from a gunshot and his wife stayed with him throughout the ordeal. Coincidence I'm sure, though, the therapy scenes entailed what I described in the book so I always wondered..... My hope, my dream is to bolster our income for my daughter and for myself. I am and have been raising this beautiful, talented little girl who was diagnosed with autism at age two, since 2006 singlehandedly. I divorced her mother the same year following complaints that I spent too much time with our daughter. However, Stephanie began school with no need for special education. She has been reading since age four and understanding what she'd read. Stephanie maintains straight "A's" on her report card, has published two books (through school) and has been selected as an, "Honors" student for seventh grade English. My ex moved to New York to be closer to her sister and has been remarried now for a number of years. Well, that's only a snippet of my sixty-one years and I would like to thank you for reading, thank you.
