Greetings. Before we begin, allow me to state that this week's blog post is a topic of my choosing, although I have received some emails asking about my thoughts regarding the Congressional hearings surrounding the events of January 6th. 2021.
I believe we would all agree that, first and foremost, that day was a dark day for our country and society. However, I think there is an even darker time, and that time is now. These hearings prove that theory to be accurate, and I will tell you why. But first, read and understand the three definitions I listed above. They are the backbone of our country, its citizens, and what we believe, or should I say, should be believing in. Therefore, before I begin, let me ask you to consider this question.
DO YOU BELIEVE OUR LEADERS ARE HANDLING ALL ISSUES FACING OUR NATION TRUTHFULLY, HONESTLY, AND TO THE BEST OF THEIR ABILITY AND ACCORDING TO THE OATH THEY EACH TOOK FOR THE OFFICE THEY HOLD?
The American Dream, right? Maybe not so much. I am going to ask you to do one more thing. Forget that you are a Democrat or a Republican because the principles surrounding this blog post apply to both parties. Not just one. The oath the either elected party member took is the same. In addition, the two parties are NOT what they were decades ago. Everything evolves. Some things in a good way, and others maybe not so good. However, here we are today, and we must live with it. We need to understand politics. Politics never goes one way. One side does NOT always win and get what they want. Also, it may not be what the American people what.
Although politics should be a set of dealings between two political parties, that ends up being what is best for us, the people. Anyone that looks at today's world knows that is a farse. Inflation at a historical high, ridiculous grocery prices, transportation issues, and the highest gas prices in history do not in any way represent what is good for the people, to name a few. In my opinion, the shortage of baby formula that went unaddressed for so long is criminal. But you all know all of this because, like everyone else, you are financially struggling with it. A struggle no one should be experiencing. What about the border? How many more tens of thousands of people will we let into our country on the backs of the taxpayers when we can't keep our citizens working? Not to mention the health issues. Folks, this is the world of POLITICS.
That said, politics is no longer an honest dealing between two political parties.
Politics is a way to justify a means.
The party with the most control is always playing ball in their park. We all know we cannot and will never be able to please everyone. However, no one knows the back door deals made between politicians to get them to vote for what bill they want, and then they owe the other the next time, regardless of whether or not it is what the people want.
That is why it is called politics. However, that has become far more complicated with extreme left or hard right thinking. Know we have politicians within their own party arguing.
In the end, this is only a blog post that I can go on and on for pages, but my priority is to bring out the facts.
On to the hearings. Remember those three definitions I started with? Think about it and tell me if they apply.
Both sides are NOT equally represented.
Videos shown are edited, so people only see what the committee wants them to see.
National Guard troops were authorized three days before the event, and the speaker of the house and mayor refused to deploy them until it was too late. And by the way, that responsibility falls on them.
Why was the intelligence that showed this could happen days before the event ignored?
Why aren't the people, namely, the Speaker of the House, and the Mayor, being held accountable for their lack of responsibility since the security and manning of police forces fall under their responsibility?
Why aren't the more critical issues facing this nation being addressed rather than being ignored?
Why are candidates with no proof of direct involvement running in the mid-term elections being arrested in public?
We have the majority leader Chuck Schumer openly on public TV to a crowd threaten a Supreme Court Justice and is NOT held accountable. Then we wonder why some deranged individual plans an assassination attempt.
Where is equal justice and accountability?
Where is democracy?
The list goes on and on. So the question that I ask is, WHY?
How would you feel if you went to trial for a crime but could not produce your witnesses to testify on your behalf or have your side of the story be told? Would you call that one-sided? If so, how could anyone say these hearings have any form of legitimacy?
I stated earlier that January 6th, 2021, was a dark day for this country. But it was also a lesson. A message letting the government know the people have had enough. How some went about it was wrong, but our leaders are NOT listening. My heart went out to the police officer who testified. I worked in public safety for over 30 years, and there is nothing worse than the feeling you are alone when you need help.
Are these hearings a smoke screen? Are they a tactic to distract us from what is going on? My God, a Supreme Court Justice could have been assassinated, and the children of another were threatened. Our congress cannot get their heads out of their butts to address their safety correctly. Something is disconcerting to me about that.
Our political system, and to some degree, our justice system, has been flushed down the toilet. WHY? I will tell you why BECAUSE IT IS A MID-TERM election year. What is essential to us, the citizens of this country, doesn't matter. It is about trying to keep political control at any cost. Politicians change their allegiance to a thought, idea, or other fellow politicians like we change our underwear. I call it "Go with the moment politics."
January 6th., 2021 happened. We cannot take it or the damage and harm it has caused back. However, what we can do is PROPERLY look at why it happened. All those responsible should share in their part in dropping the ball rather than trying to blame one person only and focus on how not to make it happen again.
Our country is at a turning point. Our economy is in the worst shape it has been in for decades, with no sign of getting better. Our southern border is a joke and a mockery. Even the people coming towards our border state, "We are coming, and there is nothing you can do about it." Do they forget whose country this is? The drugs and illegal weapons smuggled across what is now an open border are out of control. The sex trafficking of women and children is also out of control. This impact on our country is devastating, and our leaders in charge don't care. They are tunnel-visioned on their agenda, not the well-being and the will of the people who elected them.
The war in Ukraine is turning into a political show. Either support them and give them what they need to win or get out. We do not need another Vietnam. Many are concerned about a nuclear war with Russia. I don't believe they are stupid enough to go that far. However, we are at war. But a war of a different type. An economic war. One that other countries such as China are watching closely. A war of economics we could win—an economic war against our citizens that can be won through regaining our energy independence.
Addressing climate control is an issue. It is an important one, but it will not be fixed overnight, and how it is being approached is not working, and other countries are still producing the dirtiest carbon emissions on the planet. Climate control needs to be a global effort. Not one or two countries. Reusable energy is the answer, but we cannot produce the required amount of electricity to run this nation. Texas was a perfect example of their freak storm, and the windmill farms stopped turning because they froze.
Like it or not, nuclear energy is probably the closest answer if all the safety protocols could be fine-tuned. Unfortunately, I do not have all the answers. However, I do know we have the brain power to work on these questions and the intelligence to put our efforts into effective measures, stop focusing and creating smoke screens, and start solving problems. Whether or not you liked the previous administration, these problems did NOT exist and would not exist today.
I tell people when you vote. You are not voting for someone you are going to sleep with, socialize with, have dinner with, or watch a movie with. Their personality is NOT what is paramount. That is for their family to deal with. You are voting for an individual that can get the job of running this country done and done for the benefit of its citizens. PERIOD. I am tired of being looked down upon and having our country be the laughing stock of other world leaders. I am tired of our leaders embarrassing themselves to the world. I am tired of the United States of America not being The United States of America and not being the leaders, only the followers, and being so dependent on other countries that are destroying us and our way of life. Are you?
Stay safe, be happy, and be well,
