This is the writing that I have published in various place.
I have this burning curiosity. Why do so many people chose not to vote? What percentage of voting age Americans are going to vote?
Now this is a totally bogus poll. Afterall, I am having to take it on faith that none of my visitors from foriegn countries, will take part in this survey ( I would love to hear what you think about this question though, so feel free to leave a comment). It is not being run scientific at all. But my curiosity is burning …
The Vietnam Veterans were harassed when they came home. Harassed after risking their lives; harassed after watching fellow soldiers and friends get killed; harassed after witnessing some of the most horrendous things that one human could do to another. These soldiers deserved to receive the treatment that our current military receives – whether we believed in the war or not. Please, the next time you meet a Vietnam Veteran, thank him for his service to our country. They were following orders – not creating the policy.
There is the “Buffet Rule”, the Ryan Tax plan, flat tax proposal and 739 other tax related bills submitted to Congress as of today, April 17th 2012 (the day our taxes are due!) Are our elected officials working for us or taking too many vacations?
Has Anything Been Definitively Proven?
I am shaking my head in disbelief! How can positive thinking be negative? Deep in our souls I believe that we all know positive thinking allows us to have a more confident approach to every day which leads to a more fulfillilling life.
So, let me start this rant – and yes, it is a rant – by saying that I am very biased on this subject. My bias is caused by the fact that one of my close family members is a naturalized citizen. She came into this country legally, studied for her citizenship and became an American citizen following the process that the government has in place. I admire the fact that America is a melting pot of different cultures, beliefs and nationalities. That is part of what makes America great. However, the large influx of illegal aliens is currently weakening this country.
