Should Rich Americans Pay For The War?

I know for a fact I will piss a lot of people off with my answer to the question I'm asking.

Hell no! Only rich people shouldn't bare the cost of the war. When America go to war, every American should bare the cost. As a Vietnam Marine veteran (9th Marine, 3rd Marine Division) who have faced war up close in person, I think it's appalling for cowards to sit at home pounding their chest yelling about how much they support our troops; only to show their support by tying a ribbon around a tree. I'm so sick and tired of these paper tigers campaigning for war as long as they, or none of their family members have to do any of the fighting.

We have brave young men and women in foreign countries each and every day away from their children, wives, husbands, mothers, and fathers fighting and risking their lives only to hear that the Americans who tie ribbons around a tree reject a Congessional Bill for every American to bare the cost of you as a soldier risking your life to pay for it.

These men and women have been back and forth to a combat zone on three and four tours; the extremely lucky ones cheat death. When will the rest of America stand-up and either say, "We're all in this war together, or bring our young men and women home?" I doubt very seriously cowards like dick cheney, who did everything to escape the Vietnam War, and his children will sign-up for the military to take up the slack that the Generals are calling for in Afghanistan.

Racism: Alive And Well In America

With images such as these posted on billboards, newspapers, magazines, and all over the Internet, there is no doubt racism is rampant in America in the year 2009. Of course we can all say, "What's your problem, a Black man was voted in for President, stop whining nothing is ever perfect." I refuse to believe the people of color who are discriminated against everyday in this country are looking for perfection, my common sense tells me people of color are looking for and expecting equality.

When I think about it, before Barack Obama became President, I was convinced our country was not totally where it should be; but things are definitely better and we as a people are showing progress everyday. I don't know whether to chalk this one up as just plain old naivete on my part, or blame the majority of American people (Black and White) who voted for Barack Obama.

There's no doubt that it's only a small group of ignorant people perpetuating this hatred, but I've noticed not all of these racists are just dumb hillbillies. We have people in the Congress and the Senate who share the views of the people who have a platform (TV and Radio talk shows) distributing the same racist hatred as the billboard distributors. I doubt that any clear thinking American can honestly say that since Barack Obama became President, they haven't seen the elevation of racism in America.

Gitmo 9/11 Detainees Goes To New York

This will probably be the shortest article I've ever written. The reason for this is because I intend to be succinct, and layout nothing but the facts.

There have been many questions about why is it Republicans and the right wing-nuts are so afraid of these people being tried in New York. Here's the deal, Republicans and the right wing-nuts are afraid; but they are not afraid of terrorists being tried in New York. Republicans and the right wing-nuts are afraid of a Black man as President being successful; it's as clear as BLACK and WHITE. The same reasoning goes with the protests by the teabaggers, all of the outcries against the Health Care Bill, and the complaints in regards to big government. All of this is because Republicans and the right wing-nuts are afraid of a Black man with power. Due to their fear, Republicans and the right wing-nuts will say and do anything to make sure President Barack Obama fail.

Democrats: The Party of COWARDS

Anybody who have read any of my postings on this blog, can plainly see I'm a die-hard Democrat and President Obama supporter. Believe me I got it, and understand every political party, and our own family have a Joe Lieberman (TRAITOR). But the Democratic party, in my opinion has sunk to and all time low. For some reason the Democrat party are under the assumption, that the majority of Americans voted them into power only to duplicate Republicans. These so called Blue Dogs, or Yellow Dog Democrats are doing far more damage to the President's agenda than any of the teabaggers or all of the Republicans combined could ever do.

The cowardly Yellow Dog Democrats think we who voted to put them in office, has the gall to think that we don't know the only reason those cowards ran as Democrats, are because all of the gutless Yellow Dog Democrats knew running as a Republican would be a non-starter. I've written frequently on this blog about if President Obama fail, it will be the fault of Black Americans. I took that view because I was under the assumption that Black Americans would be so overwhelmed with the joy of having a Black President, they would at least put forth the effort to stop accepting second class status in America's society. But I was wrong, readers of my blog would probably say, "How naive of you JD to think people will automatically change just because a Black person is the President, let's just see if this person is worthy of the job before we start dancing in the streets of America." I can fully understand why people would have that view, but I just happen to be optimistic; some of us are naive that way.

OK back to cowardly Democrats, All Republicans and some Yellow Dog Democrats are against Health Care for all Americans. These people are against President Obama's pledge for Health Care for all Americans are for one reason and one reason only; they're in the bed with the Health Care industry. If you really want to know the truth, I can't look down on Republicans and Yellow Dog Democrats for doing something they normally do. But I 100 percent look down on average working Americans who are against Health Care for all Americans. Their dumb and ill-informed reasoning is, "Why should we pay for others who can't afford it." Talk about your 'Joe the Plumber' mentality, this proves Americans are among the dumbest people in the world. And we sit on our pompous asses and ask the question, why is it that America lag far behind other industrialized nations in education? The reason is clear to me, how in the hell do we expect our children to be astute, when the parents our children live with are the dumbest people in the world. These complete idiots fail to realize that every time a non-insured person go to the emergency room for Health Care, they're paying for it. Make no mistake about it, the insurance company will pass their loss onto those of us who have medical coverage. If we had a system that provided coverage for everyone, whether it's by the government or who ever, the cost would come down because it's other players in the game. But let's not fool ourselves, the people who are against Health Care for all, has absolutely nothing to do with the cost or government spending; it's all about rebelling against a Black man being President. These people would jeopardize the safety and health of their children and family members, just to let us know they're against a Black man as President of the United States of America; it's as simple as that.

Attorney General Eric Holder recently announced that accused 9/11 mastermind Khlid Sheikh Mohammad and four of Al Qaeda's cohorts will stand trial in New York city. Will somebody please explain to me in plain English what the hell are Republicans are so afraid of? OK my bad, I already know the answer to that question. The Republicans are afraid that everything will be exposed about how the Bush administration lied to take this country to war in Iraq, and caused the death of over 4,000 of husbands, wives, and children.

The cowardly Democrats passed a bill to cut off all federal funding to ACORN, and launched a federal investigation of ACORN's wrong doings. But those same cowards refuse to cut off government funding for Dick Cheney's buddies Halliburton. Government investigation, the media, and every investigative newspaper in this country has proven Halliburton outright stole taxpayer dollars; but the cowardly Democrats choose to look the other way.

I'm willing to bet everything I own, if the cowardly Democrats don't start showing some kind of guts and stand up to the Republicans, the 2010 and 2012 elections will usher in a wave of Republican control. As a die-hard Democrat and President Obama supporter, I can't imagine myself voting for a Republican, but as I view the Democrats today; I can't imagine myself voting for a Democrat either.
