administration, the democrats were FIGHTING against them, calling them tax cuts
for the wealthy only! It has become apparent, since it was time for them to run out,
that they were LYING! Why do I say this, you ask? This time, they refused to even refer
to them as the "BUSH TAX CUTS." No, instead they craftily chose to refer to them as:
Tax cuts for "the middle class" acting as if keeping their taxes low had always
been their true main focus! During that fiasco you would never had known that
they didn't want any of these tax cuts during Bush's time in office. They also did their
'wicked best' to mischaracterize the motives and goals of the Republicans once more!!
Of course, the republicans wanted to keep everyone's taxes from going up in this
recession because they know that it would help us all, in many ways, directly and
indirectly, but NO, they demanded that the republicans only cared about
the wealthy. I, for one, am so tired of the constant beating of that drum! I am
not considered wealthy, but have absolutely no problem understanding how a low
tax, pro business program is designed for my good, and that of my country, as well!
ImJusSayin' conservatives wanted to make the tax cuts permanent. The
democrats didn't. Though they finally did agreed to some, who then, shall
we say was really lookin' out for the folks? We want this administration to address
our nation's debt, by submitting a reasonable budget and by cutting back
seriously from all the IRRESPONSIBLE SPENDING THAT IS RAISING OUR
DEBT TO UNPRECEDENTED HEIGHTS NEVER BEFORE SEEN IN THE HISTORY
OF OUR COUNTRY! I was so pleased to hear Speaker Boehner suggesting no
paychecks for those in the Senate until they do! If they aren't doing the work
that we sent them to do...then by all means withhold their pay!! (Good to know
that they are also listening to many of us on Facebook, after all! LOL :)
We were also all recently shocked to hear that President Obama told Speaker
Boehner, during fiscal cliff negotiations, that we really don't have a spending
problem! The other night, while watching the news, there was the Senator
from Louisiana, Mary Landrieu declaring the same lunacy from the senate floor!
That gives you some idea what we're dealing with in this party!
I've felt for quite awhile, along with others, that President Obama has
no real concerns that our country could be heading towards bankruptcy if we
don't change directions drastically. It's becoming apparent, that he just wants
to tax away as much money from those who he determines can 'afford it' - and
redistribute it! This seems to be one of the main goals of this president...though
we don't want to leave out, helping the radical Muslim countries as much as he
possibly can. In a recent post, I put out there that I also thought that he was
hell bent on causing a 'civil war' in the republican party, only to hear
later that destroying our party WAS a main focus of his, after all!
ImJusSayin,' from where I sit, this is how it looks like to me. That is, if I call
it like I see it, but then again, if I choose to only believe what our President
is saying, then I might not call it that way at all! With that note, I'm going to share
something, that at first, may seem way off my topic, but bear with me, the similarities
will become apparent...
My husband and I will be married for 37 years this March. We married young
and partied way too much to be able to successfully keep it together. However, with
God's 'big time' help and a wonderful Alinon group for me, we have actually ended up
having a very good marriage, (all glory be to God!) My husband is a wonderful man.
We have been tea-totelers for over 25 years now. "Wow" you might say, "she has really
gotten off topic this time!" Well, it may seem as though I have, but I'm going
somewhere here. One of the most helpful things I learned about was codependency.
An interesting fact about those who are co-dependent to someone who is addicted
to a life changing substance, such as alcohol, drugs, or maybe even to gambling,
and over spending...is that they will, without special training, believe everything
that the user SAYS and overlook everything that the user DOES! This gives
them far more slack than they deserve or should ever be given. The saddest part is,
it puts the trusting co-dependent, who keeps wanting to believe the best of the addict,
in a position to be used a lot, and buffaloed continuously. Unless those around
him get help and recover from their own co dependency, the addict will become
quite an amazing con artist which helps to keep his 'stinking thinking' and addictions
Okay, back to President Obama and (in my humble opinion) over half of
America's active voters, at present! I think it's clear that this President is
addicted to spending MONEY...and in this case, to other people's money! He's
proven to be quite the gambler as well. To some, he's seen as a very good
hearted fellow, willing to dole out tax payers money to many unions who
faithfully supported him, to many failed 'green' businesses, and other countries
too...yes, to their way of thinking, he gives to many very needy causes!
Unfortunately, the multiple millions of hard working citizens who are having to
'give it up' aren't at all interested in these agendas or endeavors, at all! They aren't
willing to sit back quietly while our country continues to lose our relevancy, and
the super power status that we have always enjoyed, and earned!

The INTERVENTION Needed To Stop Our Country's Liberal Slide!
