On the job training

I believe this is the reasoning most liberals have today however I am not with that majority of thinkers.
Granted the system needs changes and better guidelines and over seekers, but to add more czars and add more committees whether from inside or outside the government is not what is needed. If we are broken now, we need to fix it. If you have a flat tire, you don't go buy a new car but fix the flat. If you think about it, the thinking of adding more agencies is about as bad as what we have been going through with the lending companies - give out credit whether they can pay for it or not.
It's time to stop and take serious evaluation of the good and the bad. Everything is not in disrepair. We definitely do need people who are experienced to do the repair work. Would you hire a pool man to come in a fix your electricity? This is was the Obama administration has been doing - hiring inexperienced individuals to head up agencies.
I guess President Obama is trying his best to pay back to all his faithful friends with top jobs at the White House. It is essential he realizes at some point you can't put an inexperienced person in a top priority job and fix our economy and health care efficiently and effectively. We don't have time to "train on the job" because we are going down the sink hole fast and so far there's no one experienced enough to plug the drain.

Boehner to the White House: I Don't Believe the Economy Has Been Rescued

Are Chief of Staff Emanuel and President Obama so naive they don't know how to read or add? Our county is at 12%+ unemployment and as per Senator Boehner Ohio is not far behind. I guess the President and Chief of Staff is only checking out the low unemployment states, and I wonder who they are?

Sonia Sotomayor - Confirmation hearings

In the course of the past couple of days, I have responded to several opinion polls as to whether or not I thought Sonia Sotomayor would be the next Supreme Court Justice to replace Souter. I answered yes every time. There was only one poll out of the many that was tied with "no" the rest were all unanimous yes, she would be confirmed.

I actually felt guilty, but it is inevitable. Not only because the Democrats outnumber the Republicans but because it is a done deal. The Republicans had a tough time selling their candidates regardless of their race or experience. I don't know why except the first word that popped into my mind was pantie waist chickens - the Democrats that it! I know that is a silly thing to say but I do think they act juvenile at times. They scream racial indignations all day long, but if a Republican brings a full qualified person of Hispanic or African American or even Italian, Irish or Polish, forget all about it - - it's a no wash!

It all gets very boring after a while being able to predict the footpath of the Dems. I wish they would practice what they preach. This position should be about the law and the following to the letter of the same.

Call me unrealistic, if you must!

I was reading an article in by Camille Paglia and I was surprised by the tone of her response to a letter from a reader. I have this impression "Salon" is a liberal publication and I would never see anything in the least supporting any Conservative, but I guess I am wrong. The headline of Camille Paglia's article caught my eye in this morning's which I check faithfully early every morning and in the evening. The title of the article related to whether "Palin can ever come back ." Surprisingly, Camille Paglia's reply to the gentleman's questions was similar to how I have felt and I am very comforted to see it in the written press. You can read the full text of her reply here.

I know first hand how difficult it is as a woman to be committed to both family and a job. Governor Sarah Palin has been blessed with generous skills of organization and love. She has prospered well in both lifestyles of being a public servant and a wife, mother and her own person. She has also been fortunate to have a very loving and accepting husband without whom she couldn't have accomplished what she has. Her children are blessed with the abundant love from both parents and have demonstrated their bond as a family many times on the public stage. The other family who has been in the public political eye has been the Kennedys. They also experience a close bond, a deep commitment and also tragedies. They also had a disabled child in their family.

I do find extreme contradictions in the way the families are treated by the media and I believe it is because of the gender of the politician as well as the financial background. I am convinced that Governor Sarah Palin has been the blunt of so much ill publicity and lies because she is a woman. No man would have to put up with the enormous baseless stories. She is a strong woman and I believe even women might feel agitated and compromised by Sarah's aggressive authority even though she is a committed organizer and get it done person. Women might also fear her and be jealous. Why else would a blogger from Alaska be one of the thorn in the side of Sarah Palin? Yes, there is the Freedom of Speech issue, but lies are not apart of our freedom.

Personally, I wish she had pursued her aggressors in a more subtle and quiet manner. She obviously (hopefully) has a good lawyer. For those instigators who are pursuing a route that is illegal, they can be stopped and without her making a sound, the issue pretty much settled. Well, settled as much as it could be in our country run by Democrats with a one-sided view. Oh, was that a slight of hand comment - well, take it as you will!

The important issues in my life are minimum compared to Sarah Palin's trial, but my issue was my son's life. I handled it without fanfare but with action unknown to those who were preforming poorly. It's not a valued comparison I know, but one I know does get results. I've heard opinions from many commentators that I respect and their comments were that Sarah should stop talking about it, and I agree.

It swells my heart and brings tears to my eyes when I see this beautiful young woman who has accomplish all that she has with the magnificent family and terrific husband. I want her to succeed. She does have a glass ceiling to break and she can. She has a lot of work to do before she can succeed in accomplishing that goal. One last word, for some reason and I can't figure out why, I believe the Republican Party is not completely behind her. Why would John McCain's staff treat her so poorly and without respect - maybe I'm wrong on that, it's my gut feeling from what I have read. Are they - the Republican Party - intimidated by this aggressive woman?

I hope she succeeds, I want her to succeed. Whatever she chooses to do, whether it's now or later, I wish her well always. God bless you and your family, Sarah Palin!

Sarah Palin

I was shocked when I heard the announcement from Sarah Palin this afternoon. She won't be running for re-election as Governor of Alaska. I am not sure I understood her completely, but I thought she said she would be stepping down soon.

She mention that she had a half million dollars in legal fees due to the personal attacks on her. There isn't a day that goes by someone isn't picking on her or her family. I've never seen anything so horrible in the media in all my days on this earth. What is wrong with people?

Is there something wrong with being a God-fearing, family loving and respectful person in this society? Is there something wrong with caring about your neighbor and what happens to our environment? Is there something wrong with being honest? What has happened to our America? There was a time when what Sarah Palin stood for was what every family was about - there was no difference from house to house, but not any longer.

We haven't heard the end of this. Sarah Palin - you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers! We support you!

An interesting website

I came across this website in my searches recently and thought it was very interesting, although based on the track record of the Obama administration I question the validity of all the data. However, the amount of money flowing through the departments of our government as shown by the data charts is staggering and well worth following. Just to note, this website is put out by the administration.

The website is: IT DASHBOARD - a Federal Dashboard of Federal Spending. For your information, here is a paragraph explaining the nature of this acquired data:

FAQ - For Public

Background: The IT Dashboard provides the public with an online window into the details of Federal information technology investments and provides users with the ability to track the progress of investments over time. The IT Dashboard displays data received from agency reports to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), including general information on over 7,000 Federal IT investments and detailed data for nearly 800 of those investments that agencies classify as "major". The performance data used to track the 800 major IT investments is based on milestone information displayed in agency reports to OMB called "Exhibit 300s" Agency CIOs are responsible for evaluating and updating select data on a monthly basis, which is accomplished through interfaces provided on the website.

I do apologize for not producing a post with in depth insight and virtual creativity, but there's been some distractions around this environment of mine. I do like these videos I've come across in my searches to share with you and I hope you enjoy them as well. Please be sure to check out all the blogs that are listed on my page. They are very interesting and have comprehensive coverage of all the turmoil going on in our political world. In particular I recommend Le-gal In-sur-rec-tion and Sister Toldjah.

Take care.
