The Poor Folks

clip_image001

The poor folk, The working people, as I call them, the retired and elderly, here on the Eastern Shore, live and try to work and to get by. This is becoming harder everyday. We're not sitting around some conference table, and more or less calling each other names and throwing sticks. It is like our leaders are little kids playing a game. "Sticks and Stones may break my bones." No one turns a spot light on the common folk to ask what we would like or how we would handle this change that is taking place in our country and on our beloved Eastern Shore. People are trying to hold on to their jobs, keep their homes, make the car payments and educate our children. They are struggling to survive. What are the leaders of our country doing to help us? It is plain to see "NOT MUCH" A year into the presidency of Obama and the democrats having control of congress the only thing that is coming out of Obama's mouth is: "It is Bush's fault" The "Poor Folks down on the "Shore" and across this country want to know when it is going to be your fault Mr. President.

To put it bluntly, some of the political stunts, starting with the president serving as moderator between the republicans and the democrats , left us (the people) feeling as though this was more of a staged show and a lecture than any discussion of importance. Obama seems more concerned about campaigning than being president. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi have a agenda that they are going to do their best to carry out even though most Americans do not like or want what they are doing.

The voters are tired and just plain wore out. We are weary of a do nothing congress that month after month keeps doing the same thing. NOTHING! We're tired and we are weary of the do-nothing congress. We're tired of shows. What do we have movie stars or do we have people that were elected to hear the voice of the people.

The working class families are bearing the burden of the drawn out debate on health care reform, the war on terror, the recession, paying for illegals. We are the ones facing year after year of health care cost rising, we are the ones who are bearing the burdens of this nation, but yet our voice, (our cry) is not heard by our leaders. We want better health care but not run by the government. That would be worse than we have now. They do what they want. We have a president, that some times I wonder whose side he is on. It is about time that Obama and his cronies listen to the" poor folk"

Obama's Shadow Government

By Charles Krauthammer I do not understand how living in a country with its democracy established over 200 years ago, and now, for the first time in history, suddenly we have one of our former presidents set up a group called "Organizing for Action" (OFA).
OFA is 30,000+ strong and working to disrupt everything that our current president’s administration is trying to do. This organization goes against our Democracy, and it is an operation that will destroy our way of governing. It goes against our Constitution, our laws, and the processes established over 200 years ago. If it is allowed to proceed then we will be living in chaos very much like third world countries are run. What good is it to have an established government if it is not going to be respected and allowed to follow our laws? If you had an army some 30,000 strong and a court system stacked over the decades with judges who would allow you to break the laws, how much damage could you do to a country? We are about to…

THE GUN LAW JOKE

THE GUN LAW JOKE

The man charged with shooting five co-workers at a Maryland granite company this week, killing three of them, is a felon with dozens of arrests and a history of attacking people he worked with. With such a troubled past, how was Radee Prince able to land a decent-paying job and acquire a gun?
The alleged gunman got jobs, handguns and who knows what else despite his long criminal past and workplace violence charges and they are saying It appears he may have slipped through the cracks of the criminal justice system. I think he did not slip through any cracks; the courts just open the door for him and let him walk out. Since the shooting, at least two local officials have questioned whether he should have been out on the street. Well, that is a no-brainer!
WHAT HAS THE MAN BEEN ARRESTED FOR? Prince had more than 42 arrests in Delaware. LET ME SAY THAT AGAIN HE HAD FORTY TWO ARREST IN DELAWARE ALONE, and there were several more arrest in Maryland and Washington. In 2003, he…
