How Political Ambition Helps Make A Dream Come True

In 2008, Democratic candidate Barack Obama won the election and was elected as the President of the United States (re-elected in 2012). In the elections to the House of Representatives and the Senate, Democrats consolidated a majority.

On November 4, 2014, in the congressional elections, Democrats for the first time since 2008 lost control of both houses of Congress. The reason for the defeat of the Democratic Party, according to several American politicians, was the political course of the current US President Barack Obama. The main target of criticism is Obama’s foreign policy. Problems were the failures of the democratic administration in Libya, Syria, Ukraine, in relations with Russia.

In November 2016 presidential election, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton lost to Republican Donald Trump. Democrats also failed to get the majority of seats in the US Congress.

Working as a Government Resume Writer

Who does not want to occupy one of the top goverment jobs?  Who doesn’t love a good story, one that is easy to read and understand but one that is full of details and intriguing teasers? I sure do, and I have since I was a much younger person. I’d spend my time weaving tales of fantasy or writing about the daily lives of animals I was interested in when I was a kid, and I would do it happily for hours. I never figured I’d put this talent to use as a government resume writer, strong enough to compete with these guys here: https://federalresumeguide.com/resumewriters-com-reviews/

As I got older, my interest in writing developed, and I knew that I wanted to make writing part of my professional future. I just wasn’t sure exactly how. Writing books seemed too daunting for me, and I just liked writing short stories. The publication procedure seemed too long and complicated, and I figured that would just take the joy out of writing for me.

Writing for the pure fun of it and sharing it with others was precisely why I kept up writing as a hobby as an adult. People would laugh or cry at my whimsical or edge-of-your-seat thrillers. I got a kick out of their reactions, and it spurred me on to write more. Since book-writing wasn’t my scene, really, I just put my dream of writing professionally on the shelf.

Then something happened that changed my perspective in a heartbeat.

Democratic Party symbol


A good friend of mine needed a resume revamp for a new job she wanted. She knew I was a good writer, and she asked me to take a look at her resume. I wasn’t a professional resume writer (yet), but I was able to restructure her resume and to ask her some probing questions about her past professional experiences I could highlight in the resume to get her application on the top of the pile on employers’ desks.

In the end, my friend landed the job she wanted because her resume got her foot in the door for an interview! That success gave me a new idea: to become a certified, professional resume writer. I could take my writing skills to the next level and put my talent to good use helping people.

You see, I had been floundering for a while, trying to figure out exactly what career I wanted. I tried a few different ones, but they all seemed to be lacking something vital for me: a sense of purpose and giving back. But, after helping my friend with her resume, I landed on what I could do for a living that had a direct positive impact on people’s lives: I became a certified resume writer.

I mean, by just typing up their work experiences on 1 to 2 pieces of paper, I could transform their lives by helping them get the job that they had always dreamed of. That blew my mind.

After a few years of working as a general resume writer, I decided that it was time to zoom in on one specific area of resume writing. I had worked with many clients over the years who needed help with their resumes for federal government jobs, and I had learned a lot about how to best structure this type of resume and what to include to help them be successful.

For example, many federal jobs descriptions stipulate that you have to have experience doing a particular type of task for a certain length of time. It is necessary to demonstrate how a client’s skills and experience match the requirements for the position. So making sure to include the dates someone has worked and the number of hours they worked per week in a job is critical.

Also, including any information on volunteer work and involvement in community organizations is important because those skills learned or used in those roles are directly applicable to federal jobs.

So working as a resume writer for those who want to work for the federal government has become my life’s passion because I know that helping people get their resumes ready for the stringent federal hiring process is a critical component of their landing those positions. I take pride in supporting people’s dreams by using my resume-writing skills on a daily basis.

One loss does not always mean defeat. Although my party lost in the last election, I am glad about the circumstances. After all, now I can do my favorite thing again. I returned to where I started. I returned to my origins.

Sheila Jackson Lee Plays The Race Card

It never ceases to amaze me that certain people label others as a racist when they don’t go along with what they want, especially in politics. It doesn’t matter if it’s the Republicans or the Democrats, they both do it when it suits their needs. It seems that it’s the Democrats turn to do it with Sheila Jackson Lee leading the charge.

On Friday, Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Tx) insinuated in a very strong manner that some members of Congress are against raising the debt ceiling because President Obama‘s race.

On the House floor this past Friday Jackson Lee is quoted, “I do not understand what I think is the maligning and maliciousness [toward] this president,” said Jackson Lee, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus. “Why is he different? And in my community, that is the question that we raise. In the minority community that is question that is being raised. Why is this president being treated so disrespectfully? Why has the debt limit been raised 60 times? Why did the leader of the Senate continually talk about his job is to bring the president down to make sure he is unelected?”

She also had the nerve to say that Obama has been targeted like no other president before him. Her comment being, “I am particularly sensitive to the fact that only this president — only this one, only this one — has received the kind of attacks and disagreement and inability to work, only this one,” said Jackson Lee from the House floor.

“Read between the lines,” she continued. “What is different about this president that should put him in a position that he should not receive the same kind of respectful treatment of when it is necessary to raise the debt limit in order to pay our bills, something required by both statute and the 14th amendment?”

“I hope someone will say that what it appears to be is not in fact accurate,” said Lee. “But historically it seems to be nothing more.”

I would like to inform Ms. Jackson lee that we can no longer pay our debt as a notion because of all of the other times that Congress raised the debt ceiling. It has nothing to do with anything else. In 2006 when G.W.Bush wanted to raise the debt ceiling (which was wrong then too in my opinion), the Democrats fought against it. What has changed the minds of the left to want to do it now? Is it because they have the power or are they the ones who are being racist?

Democratic Black Caucus Blames The Tea Party

Almost three years after Barack Obama took office, unemployment is higher than it was then. Obama stated in Febuary 2009 that Congress needed to pass the stimulus to prevent the unemployment rate going above 8%. Well thirty months later, the rate is at 9.1% after coming down off the high of 10.2%. To make matters worse, the democratic black caucus has blatantly blamed the TEA Party for the cause of the situation.

Jesse Jackson, Maxine Waters and other members of the causus were in Miami Florida this week to rally the troops to put the blame of the economy and other issues on the TEA Party. Earlier this month Maxine Waters said publicly that the TEA Party should go straight to hell. Her comments on Tuesday included her saying, “We have to stand up and fight. It’s fight time…We’re not afraid of the tea party…In this struggle, we have to define who we are, what the president is doing and not let our voices be overshadowed by the tea party.”

Even the State Representative Frederica Wilson (Miami Gardens) has stated that the grassroot movement is “The tea party holds Congress hostage…They have one goal in mind, and that’s to make President Obama a one-term president.”

Ms. Wilson is correct on half of that statement. The part where the TEA Party is trying (along with many Americans) to make sure Obama doesn’t get re-elected.

Jesse Jackson took the stage of the 10 member panel to stoke the fire of the audience. He asked the members to stand if they had a family member in jail, credit card debt as well as a home in foreclosure, a majority of the audience stood up. When asked who voted for Obama, nearly the entire room stood at that point. Mr. Jackson continued to fire up the crowd by his comments of Dr. Martin Luther King. The tea party opposing Obama, Jackson said, should be called the “Fort Sumter Tea Party that sought to maintain states’ rights and slavery.” he continued, “The tea party is a new name on an old game,” he said. “Dr. King fought a ‘tea party’ in Alabama…He had no weapons, but he confronted the tea party.”

This is where I take offense. Dr King was for human rights no matter what the color of the person’s skin is. He fought against racism and inequality towards all people. Dr King didn’t fight against government destruction of the economy or even the government itself. So why would Jackson even use Dr. King is his speech? To insight emotions. The democrats (republicans too) have always used emotions to get the people engaged in taking action. Emotions are what also create the TEA Party too. People being tired of the government not caring about the American person. That is what the TEA party is about, not racism and slavery. The Democrats have been using those two words to describe the group since it first started. They also claim that the group is filled with “terrorists” and “right-wing extremists.

We will never move forward in becoming a single unit of people when influential people like Jackson, Waters and others keep separating us by race, color or sexual orientation. We have to come together as Americans, nothing more and nothing less, if we want to move forward.

Class Warfare Is Just A Tool For Politicians

Over the last 50 years or so, politicians have been using the different classes of people to get themselves re-elected. When the subject of class warfare comes up, the politicians refer to as the rich against the poor, blacks against whites. It’s just another tool for them to use to get the less informed to “buy” into the crap and to vote for them.

The true class warfare is the political class against the citizen class. If you haven’t noticed, the politicians want us to “fight” among ourselves and to take the real focus off of them. It’s amazing how politicians never refer to themselves as rich or wealthy. They don’t want the average citizen to realize that they are also doing financially well. How could the American people who are less fortunate to vote for them if they too are rich and “not paying their fair share”?

While I agree that a good portion of our population is not making ends meet because of their income. Approximately 15% of the U.S. population is living under the poverty level set by the federal government. Currently a family of four making 22,314 is considered to be living at the poverty level. I do agree that making 22,314 a year to support a family of four is low for today’s standard of living, we must also think about where in the country the family is living in. There’s a difference between living in New York City and Mobile, Alabama when you think of the cost of living in those areas. A family may make it just fine in Alabama, but they sure wouldn’t in the Big Apple.

Politicians also like to use the poor as their personal puppets in the battle against the Republicans. It’s a shame that the media doesn’t do a better job in disseminating the facts form the myths. Here are just some facts about the condition the poor are in.

  • The typical “poor” household in America has a car
  • 78% of “poor” households in America have air conditioning
  • 64% of “poor” households in America have cable or satellite TV .. most have two TVs, along with a DVD player and VCR
  • Most “poor” households in America with children have a gaming system such as an Xbox or PlayStation
  • 38% of “poor” households in America have a personal computer
  • Most “poor” households in America have a refrigerator, an oven and stove,
    and a microwave. They also have other household appliances such as a
    clothes washer, clothes dryer, ceiling fans, a cordless phone, and a coffee maker.
  • The typical “poor” American has more living space than the average European.
  • The typical “poor” American family is able to obtain medical care when needed.
  • The average “poor” household in America claims to have sufficient funds to meet all essential needs.

If you look around the world you will see that most poor people in other countries don’t have it as good as “poor” Americans. We as a whole are doing better than the rest of the world so we need to stop this class warfare game and realize that we live in the best country in the world. If we don’t and we continue to let the politicians use this tactic to get average people fighting among themselves, they (politicians) will be the only winners.

Obama’s Immigration Reform Speech

“President” Obama made his well-announced speech this evening about his plans on immigration reform. His televised speech was to inform the American people how he was going to single-handedly take the necessary steps for roughly 5 million illegal immigrants to take the path to citizenship here in the United States. A path that has been traveled once before when Ronald Reagan along with Congress passed the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986.

In 1986 the steps taken were constitutional even though the original bill was butchered to get the job done. This year Obama’s plans are to do what “he” feels is the right thing. His plans are to bypass Congress using executive orders. His plans go against what the majority of the American people are clearly asking for from their government.

As for his speech, I totally agree with one comment Obama made this evening. Obama commented by saying…

As for the rest of it, well that is a whole other thing. Obama claiming to actively work on immigration issues since he took office is correct, but not in the way he presented it. In his speech, he states he increased border patrol agents and technology. In turn securing the borders and decreasing the number of illegal immigrants that crossed the border in the past six years.

While I agree with him being active, I’m sure I’m not the only one who remembers how Obama and friends tried to work on obama univision immigration reform. How about his handling of the Bill which was passed in Arizona in 2010. Let’s not forget Obama’s top cop Eric Holder working with him on the Fast and Furious scandal. Those are just two of the many ways Obama has been working hard for our national security. I won’t even mention the Feds over-reach of power when it comes to American citizens protecting their own land along the border.

In his speech, Obama points out how Congress had put forth a bill which did not pass because of the “Republicans in the House” wouldn’t allow it. It really pains me to see the so-called leader of the free world act like a child who didn’t get his way and is now going to leave with his ball. Too bad Obama if it doesn’t go the way you wanted. We have a representative republic here in America and if you were looking to be a king or dictator, you should have gone some where else like Kenya or the Middle East.

As in 1986, President Reagan and Congress had good intention (so they say) and we the People believe in our elected officials to do the right thing and keep to their word, we can’t expect any different approach to how this time it will be done correctly. All it will do (in my opinion), is to make it more appealing to sneak into this country illegally so in another thirty years, we can have this same situation again. His speech was nothing more than political tactic being used to prepare for the 2016 election. Obama has no legal authority to go forth with these plans of his towards making over five million illegal immigrants citizens. Obama should be impeached if he actually signs any executive order in regards to his immigration reform speech.

America: A Republic Not A Democracy

Ask Americans what kind of government we have here and many will get the answer wrong. America is being misguided with what our founding fathers created here in America. When Benjamin Franklin exited the Constitutional Convention, A woman asked him, “Sir, what have you given us?”. Franklin’s reply was…”A republic Ma’am, if you can keep it.”

Our great country was built on the idea of a representative republic as the basis of our government, not a democracy. A republic is a form of government that in essence is ruled by laws, not by a person or people. There are five forms of government. Monarchy, Oligarchy, Democracy, Republic and Anarchy. Of course the last one is actually the absence of government, lawlessness, The first being Monarchy is a country ruled by one, like a king or some form of ruler. As you read through the list, you will see less government involvement. An Oligarchy is ruled by a group, sort of what the supposed Bilderberg Group is to be. Democracy is a country ruled by many, majority rules. The Republic form of government is ruled by laws. The Greeks once said, “without laws, there is no freedom”.

So how come so many Americans get it wrong when asked? I can’t answer that question. All I can say is that we’ve been lied to by the political leaders of this country.

A democracy has never lasted for long periods of time, as we’ve seen throughout history. Eventually the majority rule mentality collapses the system. Democracy is not a stable form of government, instead it’s a gradual transition from a republic (limited government) to a unlimited rule of an oligarchy, a tyranny of the elite.

As American, we are responsible for our own freedom and to hold on to our freedoms we must pull in the reins of the current out of control powers of the federal government. The essence of freedom is the proper limitation of government. The Constitution was written to protect the people from the federal government over stepping their boundaries. The Constitution doesn’t give the federal government it’s power, it limits it.

Alabama’s New Immigration Law

Recently the state of Alabama has passed a new law where the school system will be checking the immigration status of any new student who enrolls in their schools. Hispanic families are removing their children in fear of being caught by officials.

Hundreds of student throughout the state have either been not going to school or have told their teachers that they will be moving to avoid arrest and/or deportation. In response the teachers are instructing students not to leave and not to worry about the police. While I understand the feeling of the teachers trying to help the children, but these students shouldn’t be in the school system. This law is being put into affect because of the illegal immigration problem that is out of control. A law that should not have ever been put into affect if the federal government was doing the job they needed to years ago.

While this is an sad issue for illegal immigrants because of them having to up-root themselves from the life they made here, but quite honestly, they have no illegal right to be here in the first place.

In the meantime, president Obama‘s Administration has decided to file an appeal against the ruling. Again, Obama has decided to not uphold the U.S. Constitution. This type of move by his administration clearly shows his lack of concern for the American people that he has sworn to protect and serve. This is clearly a political move to get the votes he needs to win the election next year.
The illegal immigration issue is now becoming the biggest issue for the American people. Many states are trying to write laws to protect the citizens from the affects of illegal immigrant coming across the border in droves. They are several county sheriffs in Arizona who have filed suits against the Obama Administration in regards to the Fast and Furious campaign that went awry when officer Terry was killed by the same weapons that the Alcohol, Tabacco and Firearms (ATF) lost track of going over the Mexico border.

The iimigration laws here need to be reformed. I don’t mean to allow these people amnesty or a fast-track way to citizenship. I mean we need to secure and close our borders, both the north and south. Not because of the Hispanic population coming across, but because of the possibility of terrorist coming through as well. We have a current employment problem in America. Nearly 16% of the working population is unemployed and we have over 100,000 legal immigrants coming into America each month. We need to slow down the rate until we can get some real leaders in Washington to get this country back on track.

Obama Signs The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)

For those of you that have been on vacation or just busy with your family, friends or your career, you may not have heard that Obama took the time out of his busy schedule on New Year’s Eve to sign the National Defense Authorization Act, also know as NDAA. What does that mean? It sounds good and that it would be something that us Americans would want for the security of the nation.

The problem with that is the fact that it has violated the U.S. Constitution, especially the fourth amendment. While the bill originated in the House of Representatives with good intentions of protecting the American people (I rather say person), the bill has had things added to it and altered to where now the freedom and liberties of the American person in question.

This new law now authorizes the military to indefinitely detain any person being suspected as a terrorist. the law allows the President to use “all necessary and appropriate force” to detain any person, including US citizens, who “was part of or substantially supported al-Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces, under the law of war until the end of hostilities”

Obama stated a few weeks ago that he would veto the bill if it was brought to him because of certain provisions in the bill. After the bill was “altered” as to not remove any powers from the President, he didn’t seem to have a problem with it. In a written statement,Obama wrote: “The fact that I support this bill as a whole does not mean I agree with everything in it. I have signed this bill despite having serious reservations with certain provisions that regulate the detention, interrogation and prosecution of suspected terrorists… My Administration will aggressively seek to mitigate those concerns through the design of implementation procedures and other authorities available to me as Chief Executive and Commander in Chief, will oppose any attempt to extend or expand them in the future, and will seek the repeal of any provisions that undermine the policies and values that have guided my Administration throughout my time in office.”

In my opinion, why would he sign a bill into law if there were provisions he and his administration want to change or remove? While I do understand that the military funding was due to expire on January 2nd, but that didn’t mean that Congress needed to right this entire bill. It wasn’t like they didn’t know there was new military funding bill that needed to be voted on by the end of 2011.

Now many have thought that the Patriot Act went too far into infringing on our freedoms and liberties, but this takes it to a whole new level. Even many of Obama’s supporter are not happy with his decision to sign this bill. The ACLU are one of them. “President Obama’s action today is a blight on his legacy because he will forever be known as the president who signed indefinite detention without charge or trial into law,” said Anthony D. Romero, ACLU executive director. “The statute is particularly dangerous because it has no temporal or geographic limitations, and can be used by this and future presidents to militarily detain people captured far from any battlefield.”

Even those in the security division of our government feel that this is a clear violation of the Constitution The Secretary of Defense, the Director of National Intelligence, the Director of the FBI and the head of the Justice Department’s National Security Division have all said that the indefinite detention provisions in the NDAA are harmful and counterproductive.

William S. Sessions, a man who has served as FBI director under three Presidents, Reagan, Bush and Clinton, wrote in a letter to members of the conference committee working on the NDAA that the detention provisions “could pose a genuine threat to our national security and would represent a sweeping and unnecessary departure from our constitutional tradition.”

The Senate voted 38-60 on November 29th to reject an amendment to the NDAA that would have removed provisions authorizing detention without charge. The amendment offered by Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.), would have replaced those provisions with a requirement for an orderly congressional review of detention power. (Jurist, Jan. 1; WP, ACLU, Atlantic Wire, Dec. 31; NLG, Dec. 27; Constitution Project, Dec. 9; ACLU, Dec. 5; ACLU, Nov. 29)

For those of you who may not be aware of it, but none of this information is being spoken about on the main stream media outlets. They’ve made it a point to steer clear of the topic. So please share this with everyone you know.

The Tax Poem

The Tax Poem.
(this is long but worth the time to read).

Tax his land,
Tax his bed,
Tax the table

Tax his pay,
He works for peanuts
Anyway!

Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.
Tax his ties,
Tax his shirt,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he
Tries to think.

Tax his cigars,
Tax his beers,
If he cries
Tax his tears.

Tax his car,
Tax his gas,
Find other ways
To tax his ass.

Tax all he has
Then let him know
That you won’t be done&nbs p;
Till he has no dough.

When he screams and hollers;
Then tax him some more,
Tax him til
He’s good and sore.

Then tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in
Which he’s laid.

Put these words
Upon his tomb,
‘Taxes drove me
to my doom…’

When he’s gone,
Do not relax,
Its time to apply
The inheritance tax.

There is just too much government spending to justify all these taxes.

The End Of Ethanol Subsidies

In a previous post I wrote about how Congress voted not to keep the ethanol subsidies going. A program that needed assistance when it first started, but now has grown enough to support itself without the taxpayer’s money. Six billion dollars was given to the ethanol industry each year. Congress decided to allow the subsidy to expire to help cut the budget. A plan that when you really look at it, was another political ploy to help the politicians look like their doing their job and following what the American taxpayer wants.

In 2007 President G.W. Bush signed into law a bill that would require oil company refineries to add ethanol into fuel in the United States. So ending the subsidies will not harm the industry when it comes to losing business and causing the ethanol industry to go out of business. In the end, the government has still help pick a winner within the energy industry.

What does that mean for other commodities within the US? Nothing. Corn prices will continue to be within the same range as it has been, as well as other commodities like beef and poultry. Ethanol consumes approximately 25% of the corn grown in the United States. On top of it all, it doesn’t even produce the energy it consumes to create it.

So why is it still being used within the US? I really can’t answer that since I don’t know what is going on behind closed doors in Washington.
