Redistribution of wealth has already occurred!

I am not a financial advisor, lawyer or any other professional type however I have been watching the history of this country for about forty years.

Born in 1959, I saw what the hippie movement did to our nations morality; how the military was affected, and the attempt in spreading our prosperity to some who where not even citizens of the United States. I was in the Coast Guard when President Jimmy Carter opened our nation to some of the Cuban people who were ousted from Castro’s mental institutions and prisons.

I remember the riots that occurred in Texas prisons by some of the people that the Carter administration allowed into the country. This occurred when President Ronald Reagan was elected to office. This is also when I became a Republican; after seeing the results of an attempted multilateralism around the world by Jimmy Carter: who gave away the Panama Canal, that when built was only a territory.

I have NO problem with people south of the border, or anyone else becoming a U.S. Citizen legally. But I do have a problem with people reaping benefits off the American Taxpayer that are not even citizens. I also seem to recall that when the Clinton administration was trying to get elected for a second term; that much was done to court the “illegal vote” of non citizens from Mexico… It is my belief that the administration pressured financial institutions to make bad loans to many non-citizens that could not afford to own a home, because of the Political aspirations of the Clinton's in courting the Hispanic vote. I could be wrong, but it sure appears that way to me.

The government watchdogs responsible for investigating these loans were asleep at best.
When President George W. Bush was elected to the presidency, he would soon be face with the biggest attack on American soil in history. I am not excusing some of the bad decisions made by President Bush, but many people would love to blame every unfortunate event in American history on Bush or the Bush administration; and that is simply devoid from reality.

When the housing market collapsed prior to President Elect Obama; my father, myself and many other Americans lost a fortune because of the bad loans made!

It has essentially affected every citizen and taxpayer in this country since before I was born and afterwards. From my perspective, financial institutions that were pressured to make bad loans in the housing market were simply another victim of a politically correct government; to a large extent. Yes misappropriations of fund occurred by corporate big shots and this is “also” stealing from the American taxpayer!

Now that the “REDISTROBUTION of wealth” has already started, in spreading the hard earned money of the American taxpayer around. I predict this type of Big Government redistribution of wealth will finally stop when the American taxpayer is completely broke!

Way to go you bleeding heart liberals, you finally are getting what you wanted!
It is just that you have used everyone else’s money in doing it, what a great society you think YOU have produced!
Stop this madness today, or we will be just another third world toilet tomorrow…

The Dumbing down of America

Did you know that most Americans that voted for Obama for President, do not know who the Speaker of the House of Representatives is, or any other Democratic Representatives in Washington?

They knew who Gov. Sarah Palin was, but do not have an understanding of who or how any other government representatives work!

A dear old friend of mine (a conservative rite to life Democrat) and local watermen, expressed to me that the Democratic Party needed to be elected again in attempting to straighten out the years of problems inherited by the Country.

He said that the Republican Party had failed to instate policies that would correct big Government policies, (and I agree with that part) but than he stated that the Democratic National Headquarters; would indeed pick the best qualified national candidate to lead the Country!

In theory he is exactly correct, as it is the responsibility of the DNC and the GOP to choose the best qualified candidates for the best interests for America as a whole.
It simply amazes me that so many people trust, and still respect their party’s leaders; yet the leadership may not even care any longer about what is "really good for the country", as they are more interested in electing people who fit their polytypical agendas!

The poor ignorant American people are deceived (in my opinion) by the large dominant multi media outlets that skew the facts for political gain; and rarely just report the news.

Most people no longer investigate or read faculae information any longer, in seing what is really taking place in our society. It is the information age, yet much of this information is disinformation and the masses know little difference!

I like many other conservatives will support our new President Elect; with the hope he will not continue to play politics’, but will do what is best for all the American people and our country as a whole.

It will take a leader with real brass to complete this task at hand.

Helped by Sen.John McCain with the ARMY!

I did 23 years as a full time Army Reserve Technician a year after my mobilization for Operation Enduring Freedom, I experienced a heart attack that ended my Army Reserve Career; and it seemed like WRAMC did not know that I existed!

As I have written in the below article I was Not covered by TRICARE at that time, as my active duty protection had just run out! For over two years medical bills, and bureaucratic paperwork where piling up. The Army Reserve Command told me to be patient.
I was even allowed to contact the top brass directly, (which is unheard of as an NCO) but it did little good, and it seemed we would lose our home!

My local Congressional Representative Wayne Gilchrest, of Maryland did much to try and help me; but the Army never responded. So one day in desperation for my home, I decided to try and contact Senator John McCain, of Arizona with my problem.
To my amazement and pleasant surprise, Senator McCain took on my case!
He did not know me from “Adam” yet this man decided to go to bat for, little ol me!

Wow, I was stunned and a couple weeks later an angry Army Captain called, asking me what my problem was... I knew she had the congressional investigation report “sitting in her lap” yet, I could only report one issue.

She explained to me that a war was on, and how I should have used an Army hospital instead of the Navy’s- Military Treatment Facility yada, yada, yada.
So I responded to her that I was authorized and encouraged by the Army to use the Navy at Bethesda, for my care. Furthermore if I only got one complaint I can make it was:
That the Army had not even contacted me in over two years, and “with all due respect” that is my complaint Captain.

Well it had been only a couple weeks since I wrote to Sen. McCain, but the Army was starting to schedule me to meet their doctors pertaining to my medical retirement.

They were very impressed by the Navy’s documentation on me and by December of 2007, I was retired having full benefits’!
I actually feel bad for other troops, which waited and struggled longer and harder than I had too...
But it was Senator John McCain who was aware of these problems when no other candidates’ for President were.

In fact some “staffer” must have given Sen. Hillary Clinton some bad information, as she did that article in Newsweek about Reservists having private health care and thought everything was ok.

Well that article maybe half true at best, but when you are hurt in the Line of Duty and other health care providers get involved, it becomes a bureaucracy of red tape and bills that the government ends up paying for anyhow! So it is much better being treated at a military treatment facility covered by TRICARE, than having to hand carry all medical documentations and bills around, playing phone tag with a doctor to make an appointment, and then having to resubmit all documentation to your C.O. to forward to the command and TRICARE for approvals, rather than just putting you in the Hospital’s computer system as a TRICARE insurance customer!

Well today, thanks in large part too Senator John McCain, the Military now has TRICARE Reserve select for all its Reserve Members!

Thank you very much for helping me and others like me John McCain, you truly do put others and Country above yourself!
