EVERYTHING COST MORE

It seems that the elected officials give away all of our goodies.  We give them the power and they really take advantage of it.

Everyone, in their own way is discussing the price of gasoline now. The main thing that we cannot understand is why the cost keeps going up by two or three cents a day.

Why do we keep getting bilked by the oil companies when they are making record profits of more than 50% over last year? They are robbing the American people daily when it is unnecessary. I can understand the increase of gasoline but what I can’t understand is, why if they are making record profits do we have to keep subsidizing them to the tune of 4 billion dollars per year.

It’s our elected officials, that are giving away our hard earned bucks to the oil companies. Why don’t they at least reduce the subsidy according to the amount of their bottom line. If they are making a profit, they don’t need the subsidy. We keep making these mistakes by letting our Senators and congress men and women give away our tax dollars to the companies that don’t need them.

y our money for some things that don’t make any sense. It’s just one stupid thing after another. What sense does it make to pay farmers not to grow corn when it is used to produce ethenol. Don’t we have a need for an alternative fuel? There is an agency that is put in place to keep a watchful eye on the drug companies, to make certain they are doing the right thing. Well they are highly deficient in doing their job. Those drugs companies are passing out drugs every day that are flawed.   If these companies cared anything about the people their drugs are meant for they wouldn’t be over charging for their new products.

Now we get to the insurance companies.  There is a fine line between what they earn and what they pay their highese executives.   There is another one that they use to calculate their earnings, their profits, how much they pay out each year and they have a way of calculating their taxes that stretches out the earnings over a longer period of time and that can be years.  If they can show where their loses are greater than the profits then it would lower the taxes.  This hides their true earnings so they can pay the top executives more annual pay and give greater bonuses.

Let’s take a rough look at the banks.  These guys are crooks of the first order.  The customers are hooked into paying huge penalties on every little flaw they make and we all know that no amount of people would be able to keep up with all of the errors bank customers make, these errors would have to be identified and debited by computers that work fast enough to tabulate hundreds of thousand error and balancing of accounts daily.  The amount they charge for these infraction amounts to millions and what they charge for the computer to tally them is only a fraction of a second.  Take for example what is charged for the use of a debit card at an ATM that is not owned by the bank.  The owner of the ATM may charge anything up to $3.00 per transaction, and the bank may charge up to $2.00 per transaction. 

The congress and the senate just give away our money until we can’t stand it any longer. I don’t know why they think we are not paying attention to what they are doing, but it does not take a Rhodes Scholar to know you are getting screwed. We are not getting our monies worth. They mess things up and it may take years for the general public to see the consequences, but it’s just like whole milk, the fat always rises to the top.

TRUMP AND HIS PINCH MOUTH ! ! !

It wasn’t enough that President Barack Obama had to contend with the idiots that were trying to cut him down at every turn in the road to becoming president, but we have another naysayer trying to besmirch his birth right.

The governor of Hawaii has said his (Obama’s) birth certificate is correct and legal, and the officials that investigated his background and vetted him prior to election accepted it, what is the problem? If pinch-mouth Donald Trump has proof that he is not a natural born citizen of the United States, why doesn’t he produce the documentation.  Set the record straight once and for all.  Instead of setting back crowing and not putting his proof where his tight mouth is, is just making more fodder for the people that are or were against President Obama from the start.

If 45% of the Republicans believe that Obama was born outside of the U.S., they should get with Trump and make him produce his proof.  I for one think that he is just making noise and really doesn’t have any proof.

I truly don’t believe that Donald Trump could beat President Obama if he were to run for president. According to some politicians in Iowa, they are not sure that Trump realizes the difficulty he may face in Iowa.  They don’t think he can pull himself away from his every day business duties to campaign in the state. They think that he may want to pass up the caucus meetings he would have to contend with.

There is a reason for what he is doing but he hasn’t exposed it yet.  Every day Trump is coming out with something new and he hasn’t given away anything or his reasons for doing what he is doing.  With all of his money he may just be playing a game and pulling the wool over everyone’s eyes.  Whatever he is doing, he is sure getting plenty of mileage out of it.  He is in the news in some form or fashion every day.

Well, enough about The Donald.

PARENTING AND IT’S PITFALLS

Parenting is a job that should never be taken lightly. Today there are young girls that have barely entered their teens, that are giving birth to babies when they are still children.  These same girls have never had a serious talk with their mother.  Mothers are too busy to explain the pitfalls of motherhood and the person that fathered the child is nonexistent.

 

While there are many forms of contraception that are available for these males and females to use. men and women do not take advantage of them.  Generally the male that she is associated with uses the excuse that it does not feel the same when you use a condom, so he convinces the girl not to insist on his using one.  That is when she get pregnant.

 

We are alway complaining about deadbeat fathers, but it should be the state that takes action against fathers that don’t take care of their obligations.  In a way I don’t like the state paying welfare money to a woman that has three, four, or five children out of wedlock, or without any assistance from the father or fathers.  What the state should require is when a woman becomes pregnant and goes to a doctor, that doctor should be required to have the woman give the name of the father.  If the woman is going to keep this doctor, that doctor should be required to have that father come in and fill out a State  form of responibility.  There are jobs out there but lazy people won’t take them.  The job won’t always pay what the worker really wants buy it will take some of the pressure off of the state and it can and will have people working.

 

When that woman enters the hospital to deliver, on the forms at the hospital she must enter the name of the father.  That father must show where he has substantial employment or income to supply assistants to keep the mother off the welfare rolls.  The father is required to make child support payments to the court and then there should be incentives that will induce the fathers to pay on time.  If there are not incentives that father will not take care of his obligations. 

 

There are a lot of privileges that are thought to be rights that aren’t.  These privileges can be taken away, such as the renewal of Driver’s Licenses can be withheld and just like men that are requird to pay child support, that don’t if they apply for certain jobs and a background check shows that they are in arrears with their child support payments, they are arrested and released only upon paying those arrears.  It may seem a little one-sided that a men looking for employment is arrested because he hasn’t paid his child support and is arrested while looking for a job, but there are lesser paying jobs that he could have had while seeking a better job that would have helped him take care of his obligations.

 

 Another possible solution is to require those unemployed fathers to take jobs that are available in the cities that are hard to fill such as maintenance jobs, where a portion of their pay goes to paying their back child support.  There are many things that are open that can be filled by unemployed fathers.  The mothers are receiving welfare checks and a portion of that money could be used to pay the fathers to do street repair work.  That would stop the double payment of welfare and hiring a company to do the work.

 

Our government can do many things that are unpopular when they put them into effect, but after they are enacted and people see that they are helping the budget crunch.  We are doing too much complaining about how money is spent by the city and state, but when solutions that can help are suggested and they are not tried, we do not complain about that.  Writing or calling our elected officials should be able to light a fire under them and at the same time get rid of so many unwed women that are getting pregnant on the welfare roles and so many deadbeat fathers.

WHO IS YOUR LOVE/HATE FIGURE ? ? ?

ACLU: School can’t force Native American student to cut his hair

The boy from Denham Springs High School with long hair, who was suspended because his hair was too long to suit

This is a rediculous action by the school. What they should be asking is how long has this practice been going on? I for one do not like the majority of the things that the ACLU does because I think they are detrimental to us.

They can take a mole hill and turn it into a mountain. ACLU has don”t so many things that wee once natural and common place and that were changed because a small group of people did not like what was happening. Just as one commenter state, the ACLU is the main reason we have a lot of the crime today.

Who was the idiot that thought up the “THE AMERICAN CIVIL LIBERTIES UNION” ? Did anyone think of tarring and feathering him/her? That is what should have been done.

Now back to this students long hair and his being suspended for it’s length. Just as Muslim girls have the right to wear their hair covered, if his religious beliefs and culture states that he should wear his hair this way, I think that he should be accorded the same freedom of expression as the female Muslim.

Those people that are saying it is wrong and want him to go against his religion is wrong. Do they tell a Jewish boy he can wear his little cap (the name of it is unknown to me). Do they stop the Muslims from praying at the time their religion says they should pray. The answers to these question is no they don’t, so why restrict Seth Chaisson?

I have to agree that a lot of the stuff that the ACLU is doing and are doing is good, but at the sametime a lot of the things they are doing, they should keep their noses out of.

They have aided and made possible many needed changes in the work place. They have clamped down on big business and made them do things they never would have done without the ACLU. But most of the kids I grew up with got spanking and I don’t know one that was truly injured. I know that there were children that were abused and I know that there are still kids that are being abused, and as long as there are people walking on this earth, there will be children that will be abused. But who was it that decided that a child that was getting a spanking and not being abused should have the right to call the police on his or her parents? Children are going to rebel and time-outs will not make a child be obedient.

Many years back the federal government stopped assisting people in teaching young adults discipline when they cut out the draft. That was one thing that the government had established that was teaching young men how to live good respectful lives. It gave them a career and did their best to keep the majority out of jail. True enough there were some that slipped through the cracks, but most made it out and became good citizens.

So to those that complain about the ACLU, I can hear what you are saying but I can also say that I am not a religious person but if you ask me, you have a right to serve whomever you want in whatever way you see fit and no one has the right to try and stop you. And speaking for young Seth Chaisson, I am sure that his way of serving his God did not just start. And the people that are talking against his way of serving, ask yourselves how would you like it if they would place a ban on your making the sign of the cross on your chest, I can remember not too many years back the Catholic Church did not want it’s members reading the Holy Bible. I don’t know if the ‘Catholic Church still has rules against it but at one time the church did not want it’s members being Masons, but the priest could be a thirty-third degree mason, (I think that is the degree).

So why be a bigot? I ask that question. What does hair have to do with learning? Where did lice enter into the picture when long hair is concerned, don’t girls have long hair. Every girl with long hair does not have lice. Lots of girls with short hair have lice. Check out the boys and girls that have body lice, (better known as crabs). Should everyone shave their pubic hair. I think that just about covers the complete subject. Enough said………Forget the ACLU……..

LOVE THE U.S.A.

There is a craze going around at this time. People are checking themselves out to find out what they are wearing and they are taking off everything that was not “MADE IN THE U.S.A.”  Check yourself out and, take off every item of clothing that is imported.  What is left on your body?

We are complaining about unemployment being so high and each and everyone of us is contributing to the unemployment problem.  We go to the big box stores and buy namebrand merchandise without considering where that produce was made and how many U.S. citizens are out of work because we don’t put pressure on Wal-Mart, Sears, K-Mart and the like of them for selling foreign made goods.

It is true that if the products that are imported were made in the United States they would cost maybe two or three times as much, but if those same products were made here salaries would be much high in order to offset the cost to manufacture them.  DO YOU REALIZE THAT YOU CANNOT PURCHASE A LIGHT BULB THAT IS MADE IN THE UNITED STATES?

Do you remember when Japan first started producing electronic goods?  People would stand back and look at Sony or some other television and turn to Zenith, Philco, or the one that most people won’t remember now, Muntz for their television.  Where can you find one of those today?  Westinghouse went out with the dishwater.  DO YOU REALIZE THAT YOU CANNOT PURCHASE A TELEVISION THAT IS MADE IN THE UNITED STATES?

Memorex recording products are not made in the US any longer.  Even the old standbys from Europe are hard to find.  YOUR CD’s AND DVD’s ARE NOT PRODUCED IN THE UNITED STATES ANY LONGER.

What we have here is a major problem.  People need to work and want to work but the major product producers in the United States just don’t give a damn about the citizens.  Their major concern is the bottom line and how many millions they can make for their stockholders.  I understand that this is the way of doing business, but they also have to consider what the people need.  They are in need of employment.  They have families to support and they need housing and food.  This is not the 60′s and 70′s where you can walk along the street and ask everyone that you pass, do you have any spare change?  There is no such thing as “SPARE CHANGE”

As Americans we go around pretending to be satisfied with our way of  life but if you sit down with almost anyone you know, they will give you a hundred reasons why things should be changed.  The man on the TV program the other day said that if every man, woman, and child would spend just $64.00 on American products that would be enough to  create 200,000 jobs in the U.S..

Starting out food prices are too high.  Then the price of gas is too high.  The interest on their house mortgage is too high.  All forms of insurance is too high.  Everything is much too high.

We can’t expect the federal government to do everything for us, we have to take the bull by the horns and make certain he does exactly as we want him to do.  We have to go back to basics, start at ground level and work up.  Go to WalMart and ask the store manager for some product that is made in the U.S..  Go to Sears and ask the manager for a lamp or a refrigerator that is made in the U.S..  Go to Safeway or WinnDixie and ask for some product in a can that is U.S. grown.  BUY U.S.,  BUY U.S.,  BUY U.S.

MAKE SURE YOU TAKE OFF ALL OF YOUR CLOTHING THAT WAS NOT MADE IN THE U.S.

I WILL VENTURE TO SAY THAT YOU WILL NOT  LIKE YOUR BODY.

A CASE FOR LONG HAIR ! ! ! !

The boy from Denham Springs High School with long hair, who was suspended because his hair was too long to suit the principal and the ACLU backed the principal up, so in the process the boy was suspended.

This is a rediculous action by the school. What they should be asking is how long has this practice been going on? I for one do not like the majority of the things that the ACLU does because I think they are detrimental to us.

They can take a mole hill and turn it into a mountain.  The ACLU has done so much to eliminate things that were once natural and common place, and that were changed because a small group of people did not like what was happening. Just as one commenter stated, the ACLU is the main reason we have so much crime today.

Who was the idiot that thought up the “THE AMERICAN CIVIL LIBERTIES UNION” ? Did anyone think of tarring and feathering him/her? That is what should have been done.

Those people that are saying it is wrong and want him to go against his religion is wrong. Do they tell a Jewish boy he can’t wear his little cap (the name of it is unknown to me)?  Do they stop the Muslims from praying at the time their religion says they should pray?  The answers to these question is no they don’t, so why restrict Seth Chaisson?

THE MAIN PROBLEM

When it comes to celebrities and elected officials that commit crimes, they get “Good Time” before going to jail. Unlike people that aren’t well known, who go straight to jail, without passing go, and who do not collect $200.00.

TAKE OVER OUR STREETS

We have just seen what the power of the people can do in Egypt.  If the people are displeased with what is transpiring in their surroundings and neighborhoods then they can make a change if they take charge and make a showing of strength.  There is strength in unity.

Too long have we let the criminals and drug dealers do whatever they want to do on our streets.  We as the people of New Orleans and Jefferson Parish need to take back our streets.  We need to help the police and sheriff’s deputies do their jobs.  If we show the authorities that we care then we will get a batter response in controlling the streets from them, and if we don’t get that response, we need to see to it that they are replaced.

Of course the actions of the people here in the United States cannot be the same as those in Egypt, simply because of retaliation from the ones we are trying to get rid of would be different.  We know that drug kingpins fight back and to do something openly is like putting a sign on your back with “KILL ME”, on it. 

With the voice of the people (even through it is a silent voice in a way) telling the police every minute of the day what the criminals are doing, they will have to take action. 

If the people keep telling the police who is behind crime on the streets they will have to do something about it, it makes no difference how trivial it is.  What the people should do is call the 911 number and report it and then call a couple of television stations (don’t give their name and address) and report that they have called the police and let them know if action has been taken or if it has not been taken.  Sooner or later more and more people will be calling and television stations will report what the citizens are doing and this action will have a balooning effect.  Criminals will see that their crimes are being reported and that more of their people are being arrested so they will have to move to another location.

The families and friends of individuals that are mixed up in criminal activities will sooner or later realize that the life of crime is going to get their family members either killed or imprisoned.  Maybe some of them will get through with their message and be cause for someone to get out of the game.

That is only wishful thinking on my part, but it just may happen.  We often see family members that are on the scenes where their loved one have been murdered and they are crying and saying what a good boy he was.  “Why did he have to be shot?  He didn’t do anything wrong.”

Well these people are lying to themselves because they know that their son was selling drugs, stealing cars, or doing other shady things.  They are out there cheating and stealing from other people that are doing the same things.  This makes enemies and the parents and loved ones know this, but yet they make excuses for the dead person laying there on the ground.  I can understand their crying over the person on the ground, but it was their neglect and their turning a blind eye to their child’s wrong doing.

I know what is going on because I had years dealing with the inmates in the Orleans Parish Prison.  These idiots think that they can beat the law.  They are under the assumption that they will not get caught.  Rather than stay in school and get a proper education, they would prefer being on the streets getting what they believe makes them smarter than the entire police force or legal system.  I confess that the NOPD needs some improvement, but they aren’t as inept as most may think.  The truth is, if we the general public would assist the police department, they would do a much better job in apprehending criminals.  This I have stated many times in prior posting.

Yesterday (Feb. 14, 2011), Valentine Day, we had another shooting spree in the city which cost one young man his life.   In the process a baby was shot (but will survive).  This baby was only three months of age and had nothing to do with the shooting but will be reminded for the rest of his life because of the scar. 

Now you can say whatever you want to but in my mind at least one person can identify the person or persons that were doing the shooting and to my way of thinking, should be the person that identifys whomever it was that did the shooting.  The police could not stop the shooting but the victims of the shooting can stop it from happening again. 

If these people are not identified and stopped, then the name of the game is retaliation.  Someone will say, “So and so shot my brother or cousin, or friend and will pay for doing that.” and then another shooting will take place.  It is a wicked circle.

If this circle involves you or your family, put a stop to it because only the people that are involved can do that.

LOOKING FOR THE BULLY

Let’s go back, way back to the days of pulling the pigtails of the girl that is sitting in front of you. Those days are hopefully long gone.

Those days may be gone but there is another monster that is looming on the scene, and has been there for far too long. It is the trend of bullying students that are smaller, smarter, younger, that speak differently, and stand out for various other reasons.

The very idea of these children that are being targeted by other students and not being protected by the staff of their schools is unbelievable. It is hard enough that the students have to endure the teasing and taunting of these bullys, but to reporting these acts is extremely difficult. These children may think that reporting the bullys will make them ostracized by their peers, so they will not report the wrong doers.

When this bullying takes place in schools, the principal and other people of authority do not want to get involved and in a lot of cases they make the situation harder for the student that is being bullied.

There has been so much in the news lately that you would think more would be done in schools regarding these acts.

Too many children are taking their own lives in one way or the other. Parents are trying to have action taken to the students that are performing these acts but it seems to be the norm that administrators take a blind eye and turn their backs on children that make these reports to them.

We often wonder why bullys do what they do? There are many reasons why bullying takes place. Some kids do it just to feel important. Others bully to get noticed by their friends. But I feel the worst of bullys get it from their homes, where the members of their family yell and scream at each other. In these families there is much anger and fussing at all times so the kids go to school thinking that this is the norm in families. They may think that all families act this way, so they have to do it also.

Some kids form groups that seem to think the same was and they have formed opinions in their minds that push them toward doing things in unison. If one says, “Let’s get Bob or Mary to do something that he would not normally do,” then the group would agree to do that.

My question is, why don’t the school authorities take more action when they receive complaints from kids that say they are being bullied. They can see and hear of the children that are killing themselves because of the bullying in school. Some kids don’t give in the bullys but there are hundreds that do and are afraid to say something about it. 

We must protect our children and when we see a drastic change in their behavior be able to sit them down and hold a heart to heart conversation with them.  You don’t just brush their attitude off by saying that they are teenagers and it is a phase that they are going through.  Sure teenagers go through phases but the parent has to be alert to what is happening.

GIVE BAD WHERE IT IS ! ! !

Everyone always asks, “What can be done about the crime rate in our city.”  Well that is not always hard to answer if you are looking around and see what is not being done to decrease the crime in New Orleans.  Murders are being committed each and every day but the police do not have any public assistance.

 

The news media would rather report a black man holding up a corner store and getting caught, for $50.00 instead of reporting that white man that is stealing thousands of dollars from the U.S. Government and sending it to some offshore bank under a numbered account that cannot be traced back to the owner. 

 

We see the Republicans protecting the big money boys and giving them tax breaks, but never doing anything for the little guy.  Anyone that thinks the little black man is controlling the drug trade is crazy.  The  little guys get all the jail time and get shown on the television for the world to see, but the man with the Brooks Brothers suit will never be seen on television.  Yet that person is the one that is making millions of dollars on the youth of this country and is causing them to kill each other.  Just as adverse publicity stopped K-Mart from selling ammunition for guns, complaining about the reporting of certain types of news to the advertisers on certain news programs will stop them from reporting all of the black on black killings that are happening.  True enough, these crimes are happening, but reporting each and every one is not getting the job done.  Something has to be done that stops glorifying every killing that happens.

 

When there were enough complaints to WWL television regarding the stories they were putting on WWLTV.COM that they stopped posting all the bad stories about blacks on their internet site.  They also stopped posting the comments that had racial overtones, and there were hundreds.  From my way of thinking, when you rile one segment of the general public up because of the bad publicity it causes dessension, and people get hurt. 

 

 There is power is telling the advertisers that you are going to start a drive against purchasing their products.   They are not dumb, big corporations sink millions in their advertisements and they expect a return on their money.  If along comes a group of people and start bad mouthing them because a television station is airing bad things about them and cutting into their bottom line, they don’t like it.  So the station that is airing bad news get’s black listed and the advertiser pulls his ads, both sides are losing money, so what do you think the TV station does.  You’re right, they stop bad mouthing the blacks. 

 

Really, what needs to be done is for blacks to protest heavily against the education system.  Our school system basically is set up in such a way that black students are on the low end of the totem pole.  White students are getting better instruction and the schools are placed in areas where black student cannot attend them because their neighborhoods are located far away from the better schools and are better financed.

 

Some schools are trying to do better by imposing dress codes and other things that teach black children to have pride in themselves.  These schools are few and far between.  The educators at most schools don’t truly care, they go to the schools each morning and put in their eight hours, then return home and think that they have done a fine job but all they have done is sit and watch our children fall through the cracks.  Truly the system has taken away their power.  The students dictate what the teacher can and can’t do.

 

Children go back on the streets and follow what they see the older men and women doing.  The boys and girls have no regard for what they do or say.  Boys use every sort of language in front of girls and women.  Women think boys and men look good wearing their pants down below their buttocks, which is a custom that started in prisons where men do not have belts to hold their pants up, so they slip down and their underwear are showing.  The word for wearing your pants in this manner is called “SAGGIN”, now if you reversed this spelling you get the true meaning of the word, “NIGGAS”.  It is not my intention to write in a disrespectful manner, but calling a spade a spade is truthful.

 

It is no wonder that most the the young men cannot find gainful employment.  They get out of school before completing high school and they have what you may say, they have no class.  They don’t even have the drive to at least get a GED.  Teachers are afraid to be firm with their students for fear of retaliation from them or the parents.  Parents are saying that their children are not capable of doing or don’t do the things that the teachers say they are doing.  “That is my little angel.” 

 

One last item, the law says in no uncertain terms that you can have no control over your children.  Your child will blatantly look you in the face and tell you that if you touch them they will call the police on you.  Parents are afraid to punish their children.  The way the internet put information in front of our children, they know all of the ins and outs of controlling their parents. 

 

We have gotten in this position because all of the do gooders and coddlers have introduced laws that will not let you punish you child.  They say that you are abusing the child.  When I was young children got spanked and their ears got pulled and if they used bad words their mouths got washed out with soap, but no one heard of this thing called “TIME OUT”, time out was when you talked back to your parents or to your teacher and you found yourself  looking up from the floor.  I don’t ever recall any child ever being beat to the point where they had to go to a hospital or doctor.  And very seldom did you hear of a child going to a youth detention center.  There was one for blacks and one for whites, but I for one don’t know of any kid from my neighborhood going to one, and our neighborhood ran the gambit.

 

Forgive me for jumping from one subject to another but this is my blog and my subtitle is I write about any and everything that crosses my mind, which flashes back and forth at a moments notice.   Thank you for reading…….
