When Will It Be too late?


Distrust of Obama

 Well what in the world has taken you so long?  Was it because of all the good he has done for America?  No, that couldn’t
be it.

Maybe it was for the way he protected Americans?  No, that couldn’t be it either.  Look at Benghazi – 56 percent of voters believe Obama did not try to rescue the doomed garrison in Benghazi, Libya because he didn’t want to risk his re-election.

I know it has taken so long to distrust the man because of all the good he promised. Now it is clear and obvious that those were all empty were only full of —-.  And the liberals hang on, though, in smaller numbers than before.

So what good has he done?  He deepened the hatred for America from other countries around the world, even more, than George W. had done.  At least the U.S. still retained a modicum of dignity in the years immediately preceding Obama. Our dollars were still worth
something, in fact, the dollar was the highest in American history against the Philippine peso under George Bush.

 

But the downward slide continues and it worsens in all areas.  We distrust him, maybe

The seal of the U.S. National Security Agency....

because of the mistrust of us, American citizens.  The American people are being spied upon, lied to and divided.  62 percent agree that Obama’s NSA phone surveillance forms “an unacceptable and alarming invasion of privacy rights.”

Seal of the United States Department of Justice

Obama makes claims of, “For security reasons we must do these things.” Yeah like, all the secret surveillance issues that his justice department has put in place.   63 percent believe that Obama’s Justice Department seized reporter’s records for political reasons, compared to 29 percent who take the administration’s national security argument to be true.

There is just so much that the average person does not have time to read about or filter through. The transparency of this administration has not been.

The founders were such a principled bunch of guys who had enormous amounts of integrity.  

The original right-wing radicals.
The original right-wing radicals.

  They knew that what they fought for in the revolution would probably happen again and so they put safeguards in that letter of democracy like: 2nd Amendment Rights.  That right wasn’t included so Joe Shmoe could go hunting; the right to bear arms was put in there to protect you from the tyranny of the government.  When the citizenry is without guns, the government is free to do whatever they please.                            

Woe are the kid's future.
Woe the future.

They had a union way back then that worked for the king and those guys could enter your home, take what they wanted and destroy the rest.  In 2007 I began to see how history was repeating itself only now the despot is in America.  Obama’s beginnings were no different from, Mussolini, Hitler, Stalin’s they all rose out of a dysfunctional society and were looked upon as saviors. Everything these tyrants did was looked upon as remarkable and their respective citizenry heaped praise upon them.  But then, the tide began turning against them as the people saw they could not fix the ills and in fact made them worse.

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.
