How Facebook is Censoring Conservatives Points of View

Now before I upset everyone, let me explain what I am basing this on. I was replying to a friend’s Post and it is obvious that my friend and have a different political point of view. I am a Constitutional conservative and based from his posts I would say that he is not a republican and sides with the Democrats. It is just a guess as I have no verifiable proof.  In my Post I had stated that we are both entitled to our opinions and have the right to disagree. It is very interesting that when attempting to post my reply, three time, it said that they (The Facebook page) were unable to publish the post. Here are the attempts.

I know it is probably just a problem with the site, but it is one of those things that make you go Hmmmm!

The Mid-term Elections are Over

Good Morning America!

The Public has voted and the results are what they are. Now it is time to get to work. As one who exercised their right to vote, I can now say to those elected.”Remember what your duty is as an elected Public Servant

Your are the peoples voice that elected you. You Must Decide if your are going to represent all of them or just the party that elected you.

When the House of Representatives elects the new Speaker, I urge them to do so with that in mind. Lead by example!

If you are in it to seek revenge for 2016 you should resign.

If you are in the house to make America stronger, Safer, and a better place to live, work with the others to do so in a civil and honorable manner.

You have the right to disagree as do I. But find enough common ground to work for the country not your self or a particular party.Yes that goes to Democrats, Republicans and Independents.

You have a duty to the country so let’s be clear , all legislation should be “Read thoroughly before it is voted on“!

Backroom politics, and shutting out the debate is not how an Honorable Representation is done.

To those of you that have been newly elected to Congress for the First time, Congratulations!

Remember what you ran on and promised to all those that you represent.

It’s now time to heal the divide, and that can only be down through civility, and respect for others.

Stop the hate speech and decisiveness. Stop the squandering of our Tax dollars on on obstructive search and destroy tactics.

I have a phrase that sometimes is misconstrued as condescending and arrogant, but in reality it is about as truthful  as it gets.

“If you don’t like the past and feel rejected, GET OVER IT! Move on, get passed the hate and descension. The world will not come to a screeching halt because you lost.

Learn from it and try to see what is more important.

Many that read this may be offended by that, but as I say, they too will get over it, eventually.

I wish the entire country a great day and better life.

 

Open Letter to the Oklahoma State Legislature

Today is March 24th and the State Legislature has failed to appropriately address the Financial situation of our State. The educators are demanding a pay Raise, the state employees are demanding a pay raise. The state infrastructure is in dire need of repair. Roads Bridges and Highways are deteriorating to a questionable state of safety.  I will stop with the Doom and Gloom.

First, I want it to be know that I do not expect the government to “FIX” everything and supply us with all our needs. What I do expect from our elected officials, also known as “Public Servants”, is to serve the Public and be consistently efficient. What were the Priorities of this session?  As I see it the following should have been done in order.

  1. Balance the Budget for FY 2018 and FY 2019. The “How” is the hard part. With a decrease in revenue that has caused a huge shortfall for the past 2 years, it is irresponsible to continue to think that cutting the budget is the only way to fix the issue. It would more prudent to eliminate waste in the government. That would solve part of the problem but not all.  To put everything back (referring to crucial services) and fully fund the necessary programs, there must be a dramatic increase in revenue. This must be done judiciously with prudence and care. Raising Personal State Income Tax is not an option. Raising State sales Tax is not a great option but may be needed. What other revenue sources are there? Gross Production Tax Would hit our largest source of revenue. That is the problem with a single source economy. We need to seek more industry and make it more diverse. While the increasing of taxes would be contradictory if we were able to increase the tax base we could Lower Personal Income Tax or even become a “No Personal Income Tax” state. That would put more money in the consumers pocket and make the state more enticing to new industries. Alternative energy is a hot market and incentives to bring more into the state would also increase the base corporately.
  2. Clean up the Department of Human Services: reduce the amount of fraud of state services. Complete the reduction of welfare dependency that was started. Stop paying benefits to undocumented aliens. Enforce the laws as written!
  3. Reform the corrections system to cut down overcrowding and work diligently to enforce the current laws.
  4. Current Laws need to be reviewed and excessive regulation can impede progress. Have Law’s that are duplicate are impractical and redundant. Example; trying to regulate common sense are impractical. Making it illegal to texted and drive is already covered by the Law of “Failure to devote full time and attention”. The latter could be used for the wide abuse by anyone that is doing something other than paying attention to driving. i.e.: eating while driving, texting while driving talking on cell phone while driving, putting on makeup, shaving, reading a book, newspaper or anything else while driving. As I said common sense. I think the most important fact is that we need to enforce what is already on the books. Reduce the confusion by not attempting to legislate common sense. “Slower traffic keep right is an excellent example of correctly making the driver aware that driving below the speed limit in the left lane is not legal. Why make it necessary to make signs saying, “Do Not Impede Traffic in The Left Lane”.

These are just some examples of Prioritizing and using common sense to legislate and run the government. That would be in an ideal world. The biggest stumbling block is Politics. Democrats, republican, independent, Tea Party. Are labels just as Liberal and Conservative. Who cares about what party gets credit when the Body does what is best for the people not just some people but all people.  Enforcing the Laws that are on the books efficiently and fairly.

Just a thought Oklahoma

2016 Presidential Election – Who Do You Trust?

Every four years, we the American people go through a yearlong mind-boggling affair named “The Election Cycle”! This year we have seen a struggle for the nomination of the republican candidate with 16 people seeking that nomination. Through countless debates the field narrowed to 3, then to one. Although there was a threat of a “contested convention”, The GOP came together 9Sort of) and nominated Donald Trump as the parties’ candidate for president. Donald then announced Governor Pence as his running mate. I respect both men for the tenacity and grit to put up with the grind and traps of a political campaign. The balloons have fallen and the floor has been swept clean, Cleveland can now breathe a sigh of relief as the potential target has moved to Philadelphia, the City of brotherly Love. The Democrats Convention started yesterday, and Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be the nominee for the Democrats. Bernie Sanders had a decent run, but the Clinton Money machine prevailed in the end.

Now the question comes “Who Do You Trust?”. In an attempt to be non-partisan, I ask each of you to consider the facts. Both have trust issues when the public is polled, however a poll like a scientific study can be skewed to meet the desired result. Ask this question, which person has in the past demonstrated a grave lack of responsibility in the handling of Classified and Top secret information. The FBI did their investigation and the director decide that no charges would be filed yet, the Director of the FBI stated that while Secretary of State Clinton displayed an extreme lack of judgement storing classified information on a private e-mail server. Now a great question, “If her last name wasn’t ‘Clinton” and she mishandled the same information in the same manner, would she have received the same treatment and could she avoid charges. Could she be able to pass a background check and get a security clearance?

Let’s be fair, Donald is no saint and has had his problems as well, He tends to speak his mind, sometimes before he thinks it through. He can be very Brash and insulting. Could he be a diplomatic when dealing with Foreign dignitaries without causing an incident? Donald can rub people the wrong way very quickly, can he be trusted to do what is in the best interest of the Nation?

I will not attempt to sway your opinion either way on either candidate. I will ask you to consider the nation’s best interest and consider which one you can trust more?

I also ask that on November 1st 2016 that you exercise your privilege and vote .
