It’s been too long since my last post.  Obama won the election, signifying the absolute failure of our pathetic education system and our willingness to be led and fed.   He’s been in office for nearly a quarter term, and it has been a complete disaster.  His track record for appointments is indicative of the dilemma with the presidential election, i.e.   Which unqualified person(s) should be running the country?  Does anyone investigate these people?  Where’s the background check?  What is the qualification process?   Does anyone care anymore?

 I’ve been working on ideas for a book.  I don’t know if I’ll ever find the time to write it, but it will be about family, freedom and faith; the three things I hold most dear.  I think that will be the title.  Family, Freedom and Faith:  Concepts that used to define America.   I feel obligated to exercise my freedom of speech while I still can legally.  I’ve been noticing more attacks on these concepts and hopefully I will able to make people aware of them.  Sometimes these attacks are subtle, sometimes they aren’t.  Often they are disguised as humor, like the Wonderful Pistachios Levi Johnston commercial where they say “now Levi Johnston does it with protection”.  This is a distasteful attack on both family and faith, disguised as humor.  With the recent FTC decision to start policing blogs the government has again trampled on the freedoms of the people.  The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution reads “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”  That obviously includes unconstitutional agencies created by Congress as well.  Apparently, the Obama administration feels like they can attack free speech as well with the need to criticize Fox News.   Anita Dunn, White House Communications Director told CNN over the weekend,  “Fox News often operates almost as either the research arm or the communications arm of the Republican Party” . . .  “We’re going to treat them the way we would treat an opponent.”  Apparently the Obama administration thinks it shouldn’t be criticized, and that Fox News doesn’t have the right to free speech.
