Big Time Sucky


I’m sorry, nice-minded bloggers…

But this REALLY a prime-time sucky.

Worse than a twerky even.

___________________________

It’s not just Obama approving a paltry 1% pay increase for our military… It’s that a military man or woman can’t support his or her family.  Paltry pay.  And it keeps getting worse.

Please view the related short news broadcast and news print by clicking on the image below…  Hear the extent of the horrendous impact on our military and veterans – AND THEIR FAMILIES.

vet pay cut

And remember, they got SEQUESTERED earlier this year.  More cuts in household income.

You don’t need to be accurate to get your point across.

Congress people pay themselves somewheres over $150,000 a year – certainly no ILLICIT income, of course – and don’t get shot at or maimed.  They take LONG recesses (i.e., vacations), too.

And Obama sends these poor guys and gals to get shot at?  At less than a $20,000 salary?  (And he takes vacations to Hawai’i costing us MILLIONS each time.)

But wounded or disabled vets?  THEY should get lifetime pay.

Period.

Not the self-centered bozos in Washington, DC.

Period.

Rant over.

Sorry.

S. O. P. – Not ! ! !

Political cartoon by Bob Gorrell / http://www.gorrellart.com

This political cartoon caught my eye(s).

Pretty much says it all.

_______________________________

S = Syria

O = Obama

P = Putin

The acronym “SOP” in business circles stands for “Standard Operating Procedures”

Here, I feel it stands for something different…  Way different.

It is more synonymous with “SNAFU” – “Situation Normal – All #ucked Up”.

Think about it.

Obama made a grave error.  He drew a line in the sand.

Then when Syrian forces first crossed it, he hemmed and hawed…  Said he needed definitive proof.  (Apparently, many dead animals were insufficient, at least visually.)  He erased that line in the sand.

animalsThen Syrian forces struck again.

He made another grave error in this fiasco.  He, as Commander in Chief, could have just ordered the raid…  Like Ronnie did against Libya and Qaddafi.  (I loved it when Ronnie called Qaddafi a “flake”.)

But no…  He stepped up to the microphone at the Presidential podium again and now wanted “conclusive proof” (not that pictures of more dead animals in addition to the bodies were sufficient) BEFORE ordering a strike.  PLUS Congressional approval.

What was he thinking?  It was like a quarterback shouting audibles in plain English.

But somebody saved his azz.

Yes, there were several more missteps by Obama…

But the worst one?  It was bad enough Obama was making foreign policy decisions.

Now, Obama handed our country’s foreign policy-making powers to Vladimir Putin.

Yes, he did.

Think about it.

A Democracy…? Or Playing Perceived Loopholes?


Espousing a political agenda is not an intent here.

But I do support upholding basic laws and rights.

But I do NOT support anyone being above the law (or stretching the words making up a law) to fulfill a personal viewpoint and to further political goals.

Court: Obama appointments to labor panel are unconstitutional

As a side note…  It’s just my humble opinion but because something is LEGAL does NOT make it RIGHT.

Old News for New Year


Happy New Year, folks, as we descend slowly into the fiscal abyss…

Anyways, I was hoping to start off this new year of blogging with more exciting stuff…but it is somewhat exciting if you are looking into your past.

You pro genealogists are likely aware of it but I happened to stumble across it and thought I’d share…

So even if you are just curious about your past generations, here is a government website (part of the fiscal abyss) of old newspapers!

Happy News-ing.
