Government, what is it:

Posted by Administrator on Monday, July 19. 2021 in Opinions

[For those who may not know, my opinion is]

Many in this country feel they know what government is, or what it should be, but in the U.S. what is it really; Misunderstanding has been observed in some and for those who don’t know, responsibility for governing this nation is not separate from its citizens as some may think, you as a citizen are just as responsible for every action of those you select through election as caretakers as anybody, it’s only separate in the daily operation and immediate requirements of everyday occurrences that may be required for its operation while not forgetting the needs or rights of its citizens. Though I don’t profess to know all that government believes are their duties, or what they think are those requirements of governing in every case for that daily operation, though it’s often known it requires walking a thin wire and a delicate balancing act of those responsibilities which are commonplace. Many details of operating each agency may be obscure, but there are some very basic concepts of government in the U.S. that I do understand and so should everyone else with what those obligations are, and can expect them to be carried out in our name professionally and with diligence. I do understand certain matters and probably the most important concept of all in government to remember is that by design the people are the government in this nation not one or a few other individuals in office, and those officials that oversee that government for our benefit are only caretakers of this land appointed by us and further responsible to us in every way for that proper governmental function, they’re not elected to be our rulers and do as they wish without regard for our desires first, they must be equal partners with all citizens, we cased off that idea of a monarch several hundred years ago in favor of self-government, we don’t need it now, and elected officials only dictate to us if we let them be our rulers and dictate. So when there is a complaint about any government actions just remembers the thought behind what government is and that is, you are the government. Which means you should choose your representative on merit not friendship or cronyism, I know that maybe hard to do but necessary.

Further disregard for our financial wellbeing as a country through a corrupt government is observed which can be evidenced by that misunderstanding of what government should be. Spending being abused by many in government both federally or State houses can be seen as one culprit regardless of party affiliation, but remembering whose money it is that is being spent is important for proper government. Keeping in mind who is the true owners of that money being used by those in Congress must be considered at all times, it’s not some fictitious entity as many think, it’s each person’s property, it’s us as individuals that it belongs to, not a particular person or group in Washington. We only lend or donate those assets to the universal coffers of government for a particular reason, Federally that reason is safe guarding our citizens from foes who would harm us as a people or a nation, it becomes problematic when those who are government officials misrepresent the meaning of safety and security, it doesn’t mean having to do everything for everyone just certain simple tasks, all else is a state’s responsibility with serving the citizens and their needs, unless authorized by that state through its people doing some kind of election to authorize it’s expanded use. Further it known that everyone should participate in the cost of that protection through functions of that Federal government without exceptions but that’s where that requirement ends since everyone benefits from it, anything else that is legitimate spending and has value to each person should be considered but we can and do expect that cost to be returned in a timely manner through cash or services or when no longer needed, beyond that any pet projects or frivolous spending that does not benefit the country or it’s people as a whole should be rejected or labeled un-constitutional. Many individuals in government positions seem to forget that important fact of ownership of assets, those who control the collection of fee’s or tax’s feel they deserve every penny of somebody else’s assets earned through the toils that some engage in, often in the form of hard earned income through productivity disregards that fact and don’t understand it’s not theirs for the taking, further indicating the lack of integrity and knowledge some people display on how to govern. However If people want a dictatorship that does as they wish say so it’s there right, but at least know what you’re wishing for.

{The challenge is for everyone to know understand what that original constitution says and implies which safe guarding our liberty, not just assuming what it means, this includes each and every citizen of this nation}

{The solution for insuring proper governing is implementing then maintaining all those provisions in that constitution without alteration and requiring those that govern adhere to their oath of office without deviation}

The Flag of the United States:

Posted by Administrator on Sunday, July 4. 2021 in Opinions

What does the flag mean and why it should be honored? Many people in the U. S. today show disrespect for the Flag obviously by not knowing or understanding what that symbol of community represents, and in doing so shows the ignorance and selfishness with thinking only they are the ones who are most important at the same time forgetting others who may think differently than they. When dishonoring the Flag a person is sending a clear message they do not respect their neighbors or their fellow countrymen or those who either laid down their lives or those who would have done so if it came to that, to guarantee the freedoms this country has to offer or a sense of duty to those follow countrymen. And even though there are more appropriate methods of showing their disapproval of any condition that exist, it is sad that some have chosen that avenue of dishonoring their own symbol of freedom they have, they must hate themselves immensely.

What the Flag mean;

For those who don’t know the Thirteen stripes represents the original thirteen colonies which are a simple of unification representing all people in those colonies who joined together for self-protect, not one person being king or dictator.
The stars are the result of that unity in creating a group consisting of individuals with a common goal called States.

The Red stripe stands for the blood spilt coming from the valor courage and straight required to achieve that goal of freedom.

The white stripe if for purity and innocence of a fledgling Republic comprised of all individuals without exception.

And finally the blue background simplifies justice and the vigilance with the perseverance to acquire such justice for all souls.

In all there is nothing oppressive or exclusionary in that flag and if there is any oppression it’s from corrupt few or individuals that do not represent that flag. So there is no valid reason for anyone to disrespect that symbol unless they are truly un-American and don’t desire freedom or the protections it represents.

The Real inconvenient Truth:

Posted by Administrator on Sunday, June 6. 2021 in Opinions

For many individuals it’s the misunderstanding of certain responsibilities people have towards each other and how those responsibilities relate to their own and the next persons freedoms which is key to peaceful coexistence, a misunderstanding that has developed over time in this country by some which is truly troubling, that is if freedom is the ultimate goal and not something else that is desired like tyranny and totalitarianism, then to keep that freedom respect and responsibility is a must. One clue to that philosophy that existed at the time of the founding of this country with was obviously Christianity and the teaching of Chris as a guide and there cannot be any argument over that issue.

Noting that many have forgotten what tyranny really is and what it looks like, and they have begun to practice much of what it entails allowing it to take effect and gain a foothold in our society once again.

One area of misunderstanding is that of individuality and purpose of being or how to achieve that individualism, which has lately formed incorrectly within many individuals over the years, and I am not convinced that many even know what individualism is, currently differing from what it was in the beginning with the, “United We Stand Divided We Fall mantra”, and where that unity is required for everyone to enjoy those fruits of freedom they seek, however there is a requirement to practice that individualism no doubt if freedom is to be recognized, while at the same time it’s also important to join together as a likeminded group as well for the protection and consensus of direction of this nations and its survival, which method is also outlined in the Declaration of Independence where it states “We the People” not just one person like a Joe, Sam or Cynthia where they are the only concern but for everyone no exceptions. But in many cases today I see only disunity which is a concern where the cure is responsibility and respect. More attention should be given to how Red Skelton sum up responsibility in his rendition of the pledge of allegiance.

Another is individual privacy that has its roots in individualism certainly, but also there is a need of assurance throughout the public domain that people are safe and the proper use and knowledge is passed on forwarding that safety that determines when and where that privacy should be applied is of vital importance, bottom line is where it affects others if only it is one other person or a larger group that privacy stops with the requirement for public safety , that is the issue, where it has no relevance to others safety it is appropriate to remain private in the personal domain and hidden from others view, knowledge or information that could sustain that freedom for everyone should also be considered important first before all else. Or would you rather have knowledge of a future bad event that could and did cause harm to many others, like those outside the Mandalay Hotel in Los Vegas and kept it private as none of your business and not say anything to anyone of that plot if known, or would you prefer to save lives and speak up. It’s the same in all similar matters where safety is concerned unless you wish to be viewed as selfish and uncaring. Same is true with this current pandemic, would you put others at risk just for your own comfort or be a concerned citizen and honor those wishes that others may have, knowing they possibly may be concerned for your safety.

Respect for others which is of dire importance to freedom and a major component of our democracy, were if there is no respect for others then you can’t expect those other individuals to respect you, unless you take a totalitarian attitude in your thinking and feel you’re the only one that matters while engaged in one-sided conversations and rule or live with selfishness guiding your every move, then you have tyranny, if that is what is wonted then this is still currently a free country and as such it’s your privilege to desire that. One of the beauties of this country is a person is free to be an idiot or fool whenever they want and an as intelligent caring individual if that’s desired, problem is we have to many idiots running the show and not enough intelligence.

Finally, summing up a few important points, in a one broadcast made that was only one of a few times I disagreed with Rush Limbaugh, were he stated there is no place it the constitution requiring people to respect each other and have intelligence to act, that assumption is wrong, if it’s not said then it’s implied as there is only one way to achieve freedom for all, and that’s respect and responsibility.
