On Current Events

Who actually knows what the Occupy Movement is all about? If you ask most of the protestors, they don’t even know. They’re cry is that they are the 99%. They claim to be 99% of the US that works and can’t afford to make it these days. Being a young married man with a wife and child, it’s really really difficult to make it, but by God’s grace and HARD WORK, we do! If you look at the crowd at the Occupy rallies, they’re all young college kids that don’t know what they’re out there for. The occupy camps are filled with leftist college kids that come from the “1%”. The Occupy Movement of today is this generations Woodstock. The camps are filled with diseases and they trash the areas that they are in. There are even reports of rape and molestations within the camps, even drug usage. The camp in New York was so big, it blocked off the small businesses from their clientele thus hurting the economy even more. So I from all that we’ve seen from the camps, the Occupy movement is to rape, do drugs and ruin the economy.

Surprisingly, the President supports it! He also supports the cops that are trying to remove the protestors, what exactly does he support?! From his previous actions, we can assume that if he is elected again, he’ll ruin this country with more “executive orders”. Where did they come from?! I guess we don’t need Congress anymore, not that they’re doing their job, but it’s just funny that if they don’t do what he wants, he’ll just make an executive order. Scary isn’t it?

Also for those of you who don’t know, the previous republican candidate John McCain, has drafted a bill in the Senate that will dissolve the worldwide indefinite detention without charge or trial provision in S. 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill, which will be on the Senate floor on Monday. The bill was drafted in secret by Sens. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) and passed in a closed-door committee meeting, without even a single hearing.I know it sounds incredible. New powers to use the military worldwide, even within the United States? This means that American citizens and people picked up on American or Canadian or British streets can be sent to military prisons indefinitely without even being charged with a crime.

Our freedoms are being taken away slowly! The Declaration of Independence clearly CLEARLY states! ” That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

This is so powerful! It clearly states by the founder of our country that it’s our duty to throw off the government when they become corrupt. It says we’ll suffer the evils because it’s all we know and it does say that we shouldn’t throw the government off for casual reasons. I believe that we’ve been pushed beyond that point. When are the evils of the government, democrat and republican, enough? How much more will we take? As a Tea Party member, I feel this in my soul…makes me think, what about you?

BUYcott Black Friday

Liberate Philadelphia/Liberate America, a Tea Party coalition of groups countering the “Occupy Wall Street” movement, are challenging the latest move by Occupy Wall Street protesters to occupy or boycott publicly traded retailers on Black Friday by instead encouraging consumers to shop on Black Friday to help the economy.

I’m The 1%

I own a business with earnings of $6.25 Billion per year.  I employ 4,992 production workers and 1,513 administrative personnel. There are 47 people in my corporation that make more than $1,000,000 per year.  The total St. Louis City payroll alone is $323 Million.  After expenses (including $423 Million in donations), the corporation pays $825 Million per year in Local, State, and Federal Taxes. I fly in a G5 Private Jet.  I drive a Maserati. I live in a 12,200sqft house that cost $3.2 Million to build.  I am the 1%.

I’ve watched outside my business offices and factories located in St. Louis Missouri, Oakland California, and Atlanta, Georgia as the so-called 99% have engaged in their Occupy Movements.  I’ve watched as all manner of illegal, criminal, and law-breaking activity has been committed in their encampments.  I have watched as the mayors of these cities have looked the other way, ignored the breaking of laws, and shirked their responsibility.

I watched as St. Louis representative of Mayor Slay, Jeff Rainford, sarcastically suggested that the Occupy Movement try to encamp in cities of Manchester, Ballwin, or Wentzville near to St. Louis (I think those were the three cities he listed).  Clearly, he was inferring that the law enforcement in such cities would not allow this law-breaking activity.

I’ve watched as all manner of elected Democrats – from freshmen House members and the DNC Party Chair to President Obama himself – have endorsed the criminal Occupy Wall Street movement and verbally thrashed the peaceful and respectful Tea Party movement.

Can you tell me why… …why in the world would I keep my business in St. Louis, Oakland, and Atlanta?  Why would I keep my business in the United States of America?  Why would I subject myself to this kind of abuse after working 16 hours a day for years to improve my lot in life?  Why would I assume that the mayors of these cities will enforce laws that protect me when they won’t enforce the laws that govern the use of their public spaces?  Why would I employ people in these cities when they are in danger of being harassed and injured as they come and go from their places of work?  Why would I endanger my family by living in these cities where I have no assurance that the mayors will prosecute protesters that trespass on my property or injure my family or property?

Why?

I want to take my business to Manchester, Ballwin, and Wentzville… …where Mr. Rainford tells me they enforce their laws.  I want to take my business to another country where me, my family, and my employees will be safe.

I’m the 1%; I have that choice.
