I am a white man who is thougroughy disgusted by the treatment of American native people. Promises and tereaties have been broken fron the start. It follows through. It’s been a long time since the natives of this country had a voice. Now is the time to voice yourselves! Like I said I am white but I am totally disgusted on how my ancestors treated native Americans. My ancestors were sneaky and underhanded people. I am the opposite of that. The US government has once again turned its back on you. In 1787 it was said that all native people would have free health care courtesy the government. It has not come true. So for 220 years a promise or treaty has not come true. Native Americans living in the USA have been shafted! Again! Native American people, stand tall and fight for what was promised to you 220 years ago! You have the right to do it. I will stand by you when you stand up! I am a white man but I know a bit about history and I understand the history and that’s why I will stand with you in victory!
It is not often that I write a blog, that is a mere rant. But today, things are different. With the success of the tea parties, you would think I would be very happy. But, it is anger and sadness that encompasses me. On tax day I drove by our tea party, and hundreds filled the sidewalks holding signs. Young, old, women and men, of all ages held the signs high and shouted to the passing cars. As a member of PUMA I should have been proud. But as I drove by, the anger welled up inside me. Anger toward all those who refused to listen to all of us, for so many months. I wanted so badly to shout to them, “Where were you when it came time to vote!” But, I didn’t, I guess I lacked the courage. I am sure many felt the same as I did that day,
The jobs rating that came out today are only the beginning. Many of you know I work in the mortgage industry. For months now, I have had to explain to families, why none of the bailouts have helped them. Each and every day, I sit across the table from customers who no longer have jobs. The help I can offer? From the government, if you guessed none, you were right. Don’t be fooled and think this is due to the Bush administration, that’s a full blown lie.
The state I live in, in run by Coal and Oil, and now the rigs have stopped pumping. The railroad has laid off, there is no coal or oil to haul. You see, the new Carbon Tax brought upon the industry, has forced them to laid off and stop drilling and mining. I cannot tell you how sad it makes me to sit across the table from a young mother and her children and tell her, there’s nothing I can do. So, passing the buck to the last administration, is a smoke screen for the sad truth. You reap what you sow, and the seeds of the Obama administration are growing.
I know the eastern part of American has been hit hard, but this is a situation where the entire country will and is suffering. It is far to late to undo what is already done. But, we can change the future, and change it we must. When election time comes around, we must vote all out, and begin again. That’s why the tea parties must continue, and we must tell all who will listen. I wish I could tell those hundreds I talk to each month, who has lost their job, that they should have listen. I would like to, but can’t do that.
Theses are not people who should not have gotten a mortgage, or could not afford it. They had good jobs, in the Oil Field or the Coal Mine, or the Railroad, now they have nothing.
I have no words to help them, so I ask all those people who believed in “Hope” and “Change”, do you have anything you would like to say to all these people?
I would like to explain my long absence. Not that there is any excuse for it, as there is not. But, a explanation, is in order. Since the election I have tried to continue as before. This has been a long personal battle, as with most of you, I am tired.
The shear reality, that we now live in a different time and place than we did one year ago, it utterly frightening. For the past two years or so, I have been shouting warnings of what was to come. The dire consequences, of the actions of this country were shouted from the mountain tops, by many. I shouted with a loud voice, as a warning to all people and tribes.
I can’t help but feel, that these things fell on deaf ears. Many turned a blind eye to our future. Now, the future is here, for all to see. I often thought I would enjoy saying, “I told you so.” But, that has not happened, I am sadden and frightened by what is happening.
The future is even more frightening, more to myself and others who fought against Obama. Because we knew the truth, we knew of what was to come. Sometimes ignorance is bliss, and this is the case, now more than ever. Those who blindly followed him, like a messiah are now beginning to see the light. It is a slow process, and one I do not look forward to.
We all are and will pay the price for those blind and deaf people. That in itself makes me sad. For the suffering has only begun, and will continue for years to come. This has been my state of mind for the past few months. I find it difficult to believe that, two years ago we were all so optimistic.
Reading the news, or watching videos only makes me sadder. I see what others did not, that the unheard warnings are coming to pass. America is becoming a socialist country, just as we all predicted. Foreclosures, and unemployment are spreading like a uncontrollable disease. The “savior” is only making things worse.
The bills that are being passed, with earmarks such as studying the DNA of catfish, or how pigs smell is more important than the welfare of the people. As I have said all along, you only need to look at the past to see the future. Many times I asked you as readers, to really look at the past of Obama, and see who he really is. Many did not do that, and now we are all reaping what they have sewn.
The future is there for all to see, and I for one do not like what I see. It is as if we are all banging our heads against a wall, hopeing for a different outcome. Unforutantley, we cannot change the past, but hopefully we can change the future. It is very disheartening to invision the FEMA camps, and the vast misery that we may have in the future.
The world as we know it, is changing. This is the change that was promised, the end of a country, and the begining of the end. I have always been a student of history, and of prophecy. I am seeing things in my lifetime that I never thought I would. I know it is diffucult, but we must all be ready, because I fear the end is near.
The end of the world is what you are thinking I am sure, but thats not what I mean. As I believe the world will never end, but the end of life as we all know it. This change, to one that many of us ever imagined. I am sure most of your remember reading the slow and agonizing death of the old south. Now, we are wittnessing the slow and agonizing death of America.
This is what has caused my absence, the fact that the future looks so bleak. The worst part of it all, is it could have been prevented.
