True

This poem was written in honor of those who “just don’t have the time.”

“True”

I was once:
True to my Principles
True to Myself
True to my Faith
True to my Country
True to my Family
True to my Friends
But I just don’t have the time. And now, I just don’t have any of the above.

My friend tried to tell me once:
That her country was falling apart
That her heart was crushed by those who have deaf ears
That her Family was deceitful
That her Friends were the unsavory type
But I just didn’t have the time. And now, I just don’t have her as a friend.

My heart told me once:
Be True and listen with both ears
Be True and give your time
Be True and lend a hand
Be True and understand
Because I found the time and found a goldmine.

Vets Day

There are many kinds of Veterans and most automatically recall those who have worn a blue or green uniform with stripes on the sleeve or medals on their chest. To those, I give my heartfelt appreciation and gratitude for defending our Country as a career choice.  There are many who made this a choice without pay and go unrecognized for years.

Over the past decade I’ve come to know people who not only choose to defend our Country with their lives but their very soul. They do not wear uniforms and are rarely, if ever, thanked for what they do nor are they recognized as the heros that they are.

“They” know who they are and receive no pay check for their work, receive very little recognition for the lives that they save. They are not headline sort of topics because “they” are not a friend of politics.  “They” stand up for their beliefs of what this country was founded upon.  The belief that we are all equals and should be treated as such.  The belief that we all have rights and violation of any right upon any single individual is an atrocity against our Country.  The belief people are innocent and have the right to be considered innocent.

These beliefs engrained within their very souls places these individuals in dangerous situations which can take more than their life but their friends and families are placed in danger as well. These are the people who stand up for their rights when our own government tries to take those rights away.  These people are put through hardships that only the strong can endure.

We owe these people our deepest gratitude and I, for one, give my deepest appreciation for all that they do.

Thank you doesn’t even begin to express the appreciation. To express that in terms of words is impossible because it leaves me speechless.

Thank you all from the top, bottom, and middle of my heart.

Free Citizen Speech?

Perhaps it is I who do not understand why those who support Citizens United ruling are in favor of the First Amendment. Many who are quite astute ramble on about Freedom of Speech and Freedom of the Press.  Either I have misunderstood or perhaps you have misunderstood.  Learning is difficult, so be prepared to be open minded as I am.

I recently engaged in a legal conversation and presented what I believed to be the results of the court ruling of Kelo V. City of New Long and Citizens United. The brief was quite detailed.  To spare you the time consuming task of reading all of it, I’ll rewrite one very relevant paragraph.

“Kelo V. City of New Long, Justice Sandra Day O’Connor “argued that this decision would allow the rich to benefit at the expense of the poor, asserting that ‘Any property may now be taken for the benefit of another private party, but the fallout from this decision will not be random. The beneficiaries are likely to be those citizens with disproportionate influence and power in the political process, including large corporations and development firms.”  With the ruling of Citizens United, the government has essentially allowed large corporations to have complete power over ‘eminent domain” through excessive lobbying/bribery of government officials.  In addition, the lack of enforcement in the internal Revenue Service and other agencies concerning non-profit corporations and their excessive lobbying abilities, extends the “corporate grab” of the power of For-Profit  and Non-Profit Corporations.  For Profit Corporations, Non-Profit Corporations, and Government entities are able to “property grab” or deny property and natural rights through laws/regulations.  Non-profits, many times owned by For-profit corporations or vice versa, are used to lobby government officials, and receive large amounts of tax deductible dollars from individuals and Corporations through IRS incentives for “special interest” purposes giving an unfair advantage, civil rights and due process violations, to individuals and small entities which restricts their freedom of speech by the very ruling of the supreme court, Citizens United vs FEC, that was won on the grounds of Free Speech, a civil rights violation against the poor and politically powerless.  Those special interest groups are usually non-profit, own and operate many businesses including using the stock market, receive business from individuals as first choice because that business is able to receive “tax deductible” donations, and form multiple PACs who are many times non-profit groups who receive tax deductible money for specific social welfare purposes (not legislation) which are invited to government meetings to form laws/regulations through Executive Agencies, as seen by the Office of Management and Budget meeting in April 2012 for the USDA “retail pet store” regulation which directly affected the natural born citizen Ms. Kraemer, in which the poor and political powerless must defend themselves against without a raft in a yacht race including very little to no Pro Bono Legal Service.  Pro Bono Services are given to immigrants who are not citizens and non-profit organization for litigation purposes when natural born citizens who have paid taxes to receive such benefits have to protect themselves against Tyrannical Laws and Regulations that turn them into paupers.  They are then refused pro bono services that they paid taxes to receive in which are given to illegal immigrants before tax paying citizens.  Those regulations are, many times, going unnoticed by any government officials, violate the Constitution, and in turn violates the rights of man classes of people including the poor of which almost 16%( questionable lowball statistic) of all United States Citizens are included…..”

While I admit that the prior paragraph could have been written a little more clear and in less words, you’ll have to forgive the ramble as I had written at least 15 briefs within 20 days with very little sleep.

Would someone please point out where Citizens United actually helped the “politically powerless” in regards to free speech?

Thank you for any input whether it be negative or positive.

Porky Business

Some of us may remember from a year or so ago when the Chinese decided to buy the largest pork producer in the United States, Smithfield Foods.  Concerns about selling our food supply to another country did not go unnoticed, nor did the animal rights legislation that prohibits citizens from owning animals, but an agreement called the Trans Pacific Partnership agreement (TPP) that was taking place behind closed doors did.  Smithfield Foods was acquired by the Chinese group Shuanghui, the largest producer in the People’s Republic of China, in September 2013. This might tempt your taste buds into “red” instead of “white” meat when you flash out that debit card instead of the Discover.

Many of us recall the NAFTA, drafted under President “daddy” Bush but “Before the negotiations were finalized, Bill Clinton came into office in the U.S”. Then we had CAFTA, signed by President George W. Bush on August 2, 2005. Neither of the agreements have provided the United States people with any benefits other than forcing US companies to go abroad to manufacture with foreign labor. The US companies on foreign land gain profits with cheaper labor and more sales of cheaper merchandise. Wouldn’t it be nice for those companies if they didn’t have to pay an import/export tax also with a Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP)?

“The TPP is a regional negotiation that includes the United States, Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore and Vietnam, which account for nearly 40 percent of global GDP.”  The TPP is Obama’s dream of reducing import fees for products from other countries into the United States while benefiting those companies who support his agenda, especially the Chinese and Mexico.

The United States has been running consistent trade deficits since 1980 due to high imports of oil and consumer products. In recent years, the biggest trade deficits were recorded with China, Japan, Germany, Mexico and Saudi Arabia.” “Japan is currently our 4th largest goods trading partner ….. Goods exports totaled $65 billion; Goods imports totaled $139 billion.

The U.S. goods trade deficit with Japan was $73 billion in 2013” which means we buy more of Japan’s goods than we sell to their country by $73 Million dollars. Leading categories include: pork and pork products in agriculture.

“The group says the agreed-upon objectives of the TPP are that it include trade in goods – including agricultural ones – services, investment, e-commerce, competition policy and intellectual property; that there be no product or sector exclusions, especially in agriculture; How many of us were questioning the ownership of foreign companies by America’s rich and powerful?! Now we need not only question America’s richest ownership in foreign countries but question the ownership of Foreign Entrepreneurs of American companies!!!

U.S. exports of agricultural products to TPP countries totaled $58.8 billion in 2013, 85 percent of total U.S. agricultural exports Do we really have to wonder why our food bills at the grocery stores have increased astronomically year and year? When we make it beneficial for American companies to export our food instead of feeding our Nation, we have shipped our wealth and our plates to foreign nations especially those who are legally considered 3rd world but have standards of living higher than most Americans.

Since Smithfield Foods has subsidiaries, I’ll list some of them to provide context as to how much of our food is now in Chinese hands which accounts for the reason why Obama wants to “free” import/export for Chinese chicken and other meats from certain countries that are included in the TPP agreement.

Agroindustrial del Noroeste (Mexico)
Animex (Poland)
Carolina Food Processors
Cumberland Gap Provision Co.
                      Eckrich
Farmland Foods

Granjas Carroll de México
John Morrell & Company
Murphy-Brown
Norson (Mexico)
North Side Foods Corp.
Premium Standard Farms
Smithfield Ferme/Comtim Group (Romania)

The idea of a foreign company owning the United States’ largest pork production facility is intimidating enough but add to that the ambassadors that the US President has assigned to those particular countries will make your skin crawl. One in particular should be enough to give you the idea of the direction this is headed.

The Ambassador assigned to Signapore is David Adelman. Most of us are saying, so freaking what and have no idea who David Adelman is in relation to the United States.  Bear with me, it gets good.  David Adelman is the former Democratic minority whip of the Georgia state senate and a longtime partner of Sutherland Asbill and Brennan which just happens to be the Exact same law firm where Lois G. Lerner’s husband, Michael R. Miles, is also a partner AND A TAX ATTORNEY.

Lois Lerner was a member of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) who IS dropping the bomb on agriculture in the United States. It’s now illegal to ship a puppy to a new owner unless you abide by the enormous cost regulations imposed by the United States Department of Agriculture written by the animal rights group HSUS, ASPCA,  Member of the AKC, and approved by the USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack.

The USDA, for the past several years, has been hiring animal rights activists to work in the enforcement division of the USDA.  Animal rights is the belief that animals should not be used for food.  So, of course, those enforcement officers will do everything in their power to put an American business in the drink.  All stamped with the USDA signature approval by Secretary of the USDA, Tom Vilsack.

Makes one wonder how DuPont benefits but it’s rather obvious when the most senior lawyer to USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack, Ramona Romera appointed by President Obama  was/is a senior lawyer for DuPont Merck.  Ms. Romera, an immigrant at age 10,  also served as National President of the Hispanic National Bar Association (2008-2009.  DuPont has its R&D facilities located in China, Japan, Taiwan, India, Germany, and Switzerland with an average investment of $1.3 billion”  There’s a heck of a lot of pork in all those billions.

Triple Bogey!

“There is a very fine line between lobbying and bribery.” When an organization that receives federal grants and contracts starts lobbying, you have to put 2 and 2 together which always equals FORE! On the golf course, on the surgery table, and at the Bank. University of California is deeply involved in politics and Medical Procedures, especially research and education.

University of California gave money, $1.6 million, to President Obama in his 2012 campaign run from the University of California which is considered a committee or PAC that MUST register with the FEC.  In addition, University of California ranks in the top 250 and listed as a “heavy hitter” in Contributions.  UC already ranks 504 out of 4225 in 2014 with $788,000.00 spent in 2013 and $490,000 in 2014 lobbying.  “Four of the top ten organizations whose staff donated to President Obama’s reelection campaign were universities, data released by the Federal Election Commission (FEC) reveals. The University of California (UC) represented the single largest employee group to donate to President Obama’s campaign in 2012, funneling $1,092,906 to assist the President in his bid to gain reelection. That number includes the university’s PACs, individual members or employees, and employee’s immediate families.”

University of California for the period of July- December 2012 filed with the Clerk of the House of Representatives: “I certify that I have read and am familiar with the provisions of the Standing Rules of the Senate and the Standing rules of the House of Representatives relating to the provision of gifts and travel. I have not provided, requested or directed a gift, including travel, to a Member of Congress or an officer or employee of either House of Congress with knowledge that receipt of the gift would violate rule XXXV of the Standing Rules of the Senate or rule XXV of the Rules of the House of Representatives during this filing period.Digitally Signed By: Gary Falle, 1/30/2013 3:58:17 PM

UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA Lobbying Report for the last quarter of 2012 shows that they spent $120,000.00 Lobbying the U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, U.S. SENATE for H.R. 6083, Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act of 2012: Agricultural research and extension programs and H.R. 1, Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011: support for basic research programs, Support for Department of Defense Regenerative Medicine grant, and NIH (National Institutes of Health) funding among other issues which was Digitally Signed By: Gary Falle, Associate Vice President

Money is a GIFT! Par for the course, we are right on track to see why the University of California lobbies the House of Representatives and the Senate.  They swing away at Congress to pass bills that benefits the scorecard at the Bank.

And what did the University of California get for that money they “gifted” to Representatives, Senators and reelecting a President? In 2012 from the National Institutes of Health:

NIH

Count those zero spaces.  That is $1.8 BILLION dollars from just the federal government divisions listed to the University of California of YOUR TAX DOLLARS.

And when was ObamaCare implemented? “In the 2008 election cycle, the UC’s employees were also the number one contributor to the Obama campaign, donating $1,648,685.”

Just have to wonder why Mr. Obama spends so much time on the golf course during the time of National CrISIS everytime a beheading takes place.  I wonder if Mr. Obama has any problems hooking to the Left which is, in golf terms: Duck Hook: “A ‘Duck hook’ is considered a severe “hook” to the left (usually caused by a closed clubface) and ‘ducks,’ sharply to the ground, running off to the golfer’s left. Another term associated with a Duck Hook, is a ‘Snap Hook’. “
