The Wonder of Our Natural Life on Earth

Koala Bear 1Koala bear is on of the most amazing creature we have ever known. The specie is different in so many different ways compare to other animal species we known on our planet. Koala bear is originated from Australia. According to animal experts, to preserve energy, Koala bear sleep an average of twenty hours per day. A mother Koala bear care for its baby for one year and during that year, the baby goes through a series of training from the mother so it can become skillful such as how to sleep on the trees and learn when it’s feeding time then sleeping time. The point here is we believe any one who want to go into politics should go to a series of social training to learn how to govern, how to get alone with rivals even when one disagree with the other. They have to be train how to respect the opponent even when the rage of disagreement is burning inside. To learn how important is it today to train our politicians, go online and watch Hilary Clinton testimony on Capital Hill and you will understand the point we are trying to make here. Watch this video and see how this animal naturally behave in the wild and think about a positive lesson we can learn and apply in our daily life. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Psq_DkBHY60

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,100 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

Leadership Requires Excellent Diplomacy

Let us start a real democratic debabte about the direction the United States of America should take to keep its leadership position of the free world. All ideas and views are welcome for debate but radicalism has no place in a free democracy. We must always strive for positive ideas to move our country and our leadership position forward. The primitive thinking is the wrong way to advance our ideas and national goals and interest around the world. We must also concern about our domestic policies. To have a strong position in the world, we must also be strong at home.

Government is Bad – Really?

“The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.”  ~Winston Churchill

“We are imperfect.  We cannot expect perfect government.”  ~William Howard Taft

“Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.”  ~P.J. O’Rourke

“Many forms of Government have been tried, and will be tried in this world of sin and woe.  No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise.  Indeed, it has been said that democracy is the worst form of Government except all those others that have been tried from time to time.”  ~Winston Churchill

“Democracy is two wolves and a lamb deciding what to have for dinner.  Liberty is a well-armed lamb.”  ~Author unknown, commonly misattributed to Benjamin Franklin  (Thanks, Art)

“If you want to understand your government, don’t begin by reading the Constitution.  (It conveys precious little of the flavor of today’s statecraft.)  Instead, read selected portions of the Washington telephone directory containing listings for all the organizations with titles beginning with the word National.”  ~George Will

“People come to Washington believing it’s the center of power.  I know I did.  It was only much later that I learned that Washington is a steering wheel that’s not connected to the engine.” ~Richard Goodwin

These quotes are saying something important about government functions in our society but we let you be the judge.

Government Function in Our Society

We don't need the government when our business is booming but soon things are not working we are crying for help.

Reflexion of the Day – February 14, 2012

Radical ideological negative political statements are perfect recipes to build craters and develop erosion in our national social fabric. But understanding the real problems our nation is facing is a great starting point to find real solutions to improve the lives of all our citizens. “Us against them” never work and will never find real solutions that will serve the most members of our society. Working together like a team on the field of our every day lives always finds proper solutions for the common good. Remember Republicans, Democrats, conservatives, liberals, and progressives we are all Americans and we will always be Americans. Honestly, working together it’s a must do with no questions ask.

Domesticate a Tiger Will NOT Change Its Natural DNA

A tiger is a tiger no matter how we chose to raise the animal. Its DNA coding can not be altered, changed, or reprogrammed. This is a basic fundamental principle of nature. A tiger’s gene is programmed to be self-sufficient in its natural habitat such as to hunt to survive, live in open fields with other animals in the environment, and that is the life a tiger is created to live until it dies. We may capture a tiger, put it on display in our animal zoo for rational human beings to see, study its behavior, and learn something about the animal but we have to be very careful because the instinct of a tiger can be kicked in any time; meaning the animal could be very friendly one moment and the next minute becomes very dangerous to the human. Politicians like Mitt Romney have similarities in this regard. He will never forget what he does best which is destroy companies, firing people from their jobs after he bankrupts the companies and makes million of dollars for himself and his company. Even with all the knowledge in the world, we can’t change a tiger’s natural behavior and we can’t change the behavior of a politician like Mitt Romney. Even with all of his millions he will still love to destroy companies and layoff people, just because that what built into his political and business DNA.

What about the new species of politicians we have in the field these days? Can

New Species of Republicans

they be reprogrammed, changed, altered, or even turned into human beings? If you want to try that, we are wishing you the best of luck and we think you are going to need great luck to change a politician. Bear in mind, they are not user-friendly these days. During this current electoral campaign, we heard many of the conservative rhetoric and we wonder what are these people thinking when they came out with those silly ideologies. People with average intelligence wonder if these folks believe that we are stupid about the real issues that we care about.

Mitt Mad Like a Tiger

Mitt Romney is a classic example among the group of the new species of the radical conservative republican. In several of his robotic speeches he said: “President Obama does not understand how the economy works. You have to elect a President who knows how the economy works.” Now, wait a minute, what makes him an expert in the national economy? Romney’s experience is to go out there find a company in financial trouble, buy the company, bankrupt the company, fire the workers, and sell the company for a healthy profit. If we call that practical economic experience, we must review our concept of national economy. This is an act of mercenary and that’s exactly what it is and that is far from qualifying Romney as an expert in economy. Having the population working is the key for economic stimulus but the other way around in Mitt Romney’s own words “I love fired people who provide service to me.”

Here is another laughable statement he made many times: “if you elect me as your President, I will repeal Obama Care.” Mitt, the executive branch in our government has no Constitutional power to make or repeal laws in the United States of America. In regard to repealing or making laws in the United States of America, the President has the power to VETO any law enacted by congress and there is nothing else the President can do about making or repealing laws in the United States of America. What if you’re elected President with a majority Democrat Senate and House of Representatives? How are you going to deal with that lie? Being the President of a country like the United States of America requires someone with character and determination to tell the truth even when things are not the way people expected them to be. Mitt, you do not have those qualities. You adjust your views according to the situation you are facing and you change positions like a clock that change the time every second.

Deregulation & Tax Cut

What to expect if Mitt Romney becomes the next President of the United States of America? Tax cuts will be the number one item on his agenda because Mitt and his rich friends will profit from that policy followed by deregulation of the financial sector which we have known to be the cause of the financial meltdown in 2008. Massive layoffs in government and in the private sector like we saw it during the end of George W. Bush’s administration and the effect has a very long impact on the rebound of our national economy including the international financial crisis. The states with republican governors and republican majority in the states legislative bodies will pass “right to work laws”, and not one of those conservative decisions will help solve unemployment and the national debts problems we are facing in this country.

Expect more crazy and irrational social legislations around the country to ban abortion, defunding family planning, eliminate union rights, more restriction to vote as citizen of the United States around the country, a constitutional amendment to define personhood, legislations to eliminate social security, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, and many other unwanted legislations while they ignore the real multiple problems the country has to deal with. Mitt Romney and his conservative bodies will pass legislations to allow companies to ship American’s jobs overseas because they will have tax breaks for doing so. We have nothing against the conservative republican but the way they want to run this country is too radical, ideological, and inhuman for majority of Americans. If the register voters allows this to happen, these crazy politicians will bring the country down with them. We can not and will not allow that to happen.

What else we should expect if either one of those crazy conservative

More Deregulation To Destroy the Environment

candidates ends up in the Oval Office with a majority radical conservative republican Congress? According to Rick Perry, we will invade Iraq again to start a new war that will cost American human lives and millions of dollars we don’t even have. Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, and Rick Perry all pledge to bomb Iran. That will be another war to expect from the republicans. Picture the United States of Americain your mind after 4-years either one of irrational Looney occupy the office of the Presidency. Voters, our future and the future of our children and grandchildren is at stake, if we don’t take action we have a lot to loose. As we have experienced this before, there will be negative political ads all over to convince us to vote against our own interest like we did in 2010 Mid-term election. We have to resist the temptation of falling into the crack. This time we have to prove that we will be the one in the cockpit to land the plane safely. We pledge to elect candidates who represent us in Washington and in the state governments.

All the candidates are against any tax increase to reduce the national debt and for tax cuts for the so call “job creators” and they claim that tax cuts and deregulation will solve unemployment and improve the economy. We have been down that road before and the result was the meltdown of the financial crisis, record high unemployment, and slow growth in our national economy. We understand that policy does not work at all. We wonder why it’s so hard for the radical conservative republicans refuse to admit that their policies are not working for the majority of Americans. Basic principle for us as private citizens, when we are berry in debt, we take a second job to increase our revenues, and try to reduce our expenditures. In short, conservative folks, tax cuts and deregulation do not create jobs nor stimulate the economy.

The facts are available for us to compare, Bill Clinton’s Administration v. George W. Bush’s Administration. The radical ideological conservative will ignore the facts between those two administrations but we know that under Clinton’s administration the tax rate was higher, he balanced the budget before he left office, the treasury recorded a budget surplus, the unemployment rate was low, and he created million of jobs during his administration. George W. Bush came to office; he gave huge tax cuts to his millionaire buddies and deregulated the financial sector and the result was the meltdown of the financial market, massive unemployment, and the largest economic downturn since the Great Depression. Compare those two administrations’ policies we and can fairly conclude which one worked and the one that is not working.

 According to right-wing conservative republican rhetoric if they can legally eliminate most of these useful social programs in America, the country will solve all of our national problems. Here is a list of those social programs they want to eliminate:

  • Social Security
  • Medicare
  • Medicaid
  • Food Stamps Program (provide foods to the poor)
  • Health Care for all American
  • Labor rights
  • Right of women to choose
  • Family Planning
  • Privacy Rights
  • Gay and lesbian rights
  • deregulation
  • Right to vote as an American citizen

They claim that if they can pass legislations to ban these social programs, the

Fat Cats Theory

country will have full employment, the national debt will be magically paid-off, giving huge tax cuts to the richest American, and deregulate businesses will be a perfect recipe for full economic recovery for the country. If we let that happen, this is a perfect recipe for disaster. Poverty will spread all over the country; the country will have two classes of citizen, the super rich and the poor; and the below poverty groups will be like it is in many third world countries around the world. This is not an imaginary assessment, instead this reality of where we are headed because of the decisions those crazy nuts have made in the past and in our present time.

Writing this article does not mean we are anti-free enterprise system, anti-capitalism, or against the Laissez-Faire theory but in a rational sense we see the country and the world as an inter-connect that moving parts are in harmony if we can just leave aside the ideological behavior out of the common sense decision-making process to work in a single unit to solve problems and make this country a better place to live, raise our children, and leave a better future for the generations that will be replacing us. Previous generations did that for us in building highway systems, railroads, airports, seaports, the sewer system, the electric grid, social security, and Medicare. So why is our generation of politicians so selfish and not willing to leave a legacy that will be useful to our future generations to come.

 

A Tiger is A Tiger So Is Mitt

A tiger is a tiger no matter how it’s being raised, domestic or grown up in the wild. The animal will always have its natural gene. Mitt Romney or any of the other candidates don’t have an idea how the rest of us live our lives because they have never experienced the financial pains we have to endure. Some of us are living paycheck to paycheck in a constant difficulty to pay the bills, we can’t find a job to take care of our family obligations, if we are sick we can’t go to see a doctor because no medical doctor will see us unless we have health insurance or the cash to pay for the service. Romney will always say “I will repeal Obama Care” just because he can afford it for himself and his family and if we can’t that will be too bad. A tiger is a tiger; the conservative republicans want to eliminate the safety net that generations of Americans enjoyed for over 50-years because they have financial resources to take care of themselves in their old age. It’s not a problem if the rest of the Americans die in poverty because life goes on. A tiger is tiger and so are the right-wing radical conservative republicans. Their political DNA coding cannot and will never change because there is no override for their gene programming.

Have We Learned Anything from 2008 Financial Meltdown?

Why you want to repeal Dodd-Frank Financial Reform? Have we forgotten what had happened in 2008 financial crisis? For conservative folks the only two ways to stimulate our economy is to cut taxes and cut regulations. Folks we have tried both policies before unless you have short-term memory problems other than that you should know that they are not working. Perfect example, President Clinton raised taxes; we had economy boom and lot of jobs were created during his administration. He left office with a balance budget and a budget surplus. President Bush cut taxes and eliminates regulations; in 2008 under his administration we had the economy collapse. We have many reputable financial institutions closed out. The entire financial system has been affected beyond repair. Have we leaned anything from our past decisions? The entire world is changing; we need to move away from our ideology and become more problem solvers.

 To use an analogy, we know when the United States of America sneeze the rest of the world has pneumonia. Since 2008 we have a constant up and down financial system that affects the world economy. The Euro Zone becoming a nightmare to recovery, many European Countries are on the brink of collapse. Here at home unemployment rate went sky-high. People around the country are loosing their home because they can’t find a job to resolve their financial affairs. For the first time in history the United States of America credit rating has been down grade because of irresponsible action of the TEA PARTY. The elected politicians inWashingtoncan’t get their act together to resolve the country’s problems.Washingtonto stay in the leadership position of the free world we have to be problems solver. Ideology will not solve any problems and the only thing we will get out of ideology is a divided society.

 What should be done after the Clinton Administration? The budget surplus should be used to pay down the country debts. The tax rate should stay the same and continue paying down the nation debts. The country should not go to war in Iraq. As we know that war has a lot to do with our out of control deficit. The war was financed off the regular budget (which we call in the financial world off-balance sheet financing). Where were you conservative folks during that out of control spending? In addition to financial costs to the country, we cannot put a price on human lives. We lost a lot of men and women lives during the Iraq War. History is always a good place to learn from our past mistakes but unfortunately if we do not learn from our past mistakes, we will unable to resolve our current and future problems.

 The country is facing multiple problems that need to be addressed and resolved. Blames become the only solution propose by the elected politicians in Washingtonthis days. We have to understand the United States Government has three branches and for the sake of our nation, elected officials have to work together to solve problems. Each branch of our government hold a piece of the puzzle and those pieces has to come together to solve the country’s problems. Our democracy allowed us to agree and disagree with each other on issues. That should not be a barrier from stop us to working together for the benefit of our nation.

 Why Dodd-Frank Financial Reform is important for our economy? We should ask ourselves this question before we are talking about repealing Dodd-Frank Financial Reform. Have we forgotten who is responsible for the damage of oureconomy? The answer is very simple. Wall Street operation is 100% responsible with the blessing of the conservative Congress. After the conservative folks decided to deregulate businesses and the financial sector which is controlled by Wall Street makers and shakers went wild in their dealing. They knew some of those financial transactions were toxic for our economy. They gambling any way on the assumption of the idea “too big to fail” and with hope the taxpayers will bail them out.

 What was the result of Wall Street action? The true incentive for Wall Street was to make tone of money in a short period of time regardless the negative impact that will have on the financial system. Some people and corporations became very rich during that time period but the nation economy will take a long time to recover because of the irresponsible actions of Wall Street. To stop that unfortunate damage to our economy from happening again; Dodd-Frank Financial Reform and Consumer Protection Act is a great tool. The most venerable people such as 401(k), retirement funds, housing sector, and the entire financial system have been affected during this crisis.

 What the opponent views on Dodd-Frank Financial Reform and Consumer Protection Act? The opponents claim that “Dodd-Frank Financial Reform” will slowing down the economy from recovery. Folks have you forgotten what had happened during the 2008 Financial Crisis? Let refresh your memory: The credit market stop; Major financial institutions were about to collapse; Merrill Lynch gone; Lehmann Brothers no longer exist; Banks stopped lending to one another. If Dodd-Frank Financial Reform and Consumer Protection Act was in place before 2008 the financial crisis would not happened. The 2008 financial crisis cost American taxpayers $700 billion dollars in bailout of the banking systems, millions of jobs lost, and trillions of dollars in savings, forced a lot of small businesses to close their doors, and forced millions of homeowners into foreclosure.

 The opponents use scare tactics and fear to bring down Dodd-Frank Financial and Consumer Protection Act. Here are some of the untruth statements they have made:

  • Dodd-Frank Financial Reform and Consumer Protection Act will slowdown the recovery of the economy.
  • Dodd-Frank Financial Reform and Consumer Protection Act hurts small business and community banks.
  • Dodd-Frank Financial Reform and Consumer Protection Act failed to truly reform Wall Street.
  • Congress failed to reform Fannie Mae and Freddie Mae.
  • Let repeal Dodd-Frank Financial Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

 What will be the impact if Dodd-Frank Financial Reform and Consumer Protection Act repeal? The opponents of Dodd-Frank Financial Reform may not agree with the Act repealing will be disaster for United States and the rest of world financial systems. Without that piece of legislation, the gamblers on Wall Street will go wild and compare to what happened in 2008 financial crisis could be worst and put the entire world financial system at risk. American Consumers will be at the mercy of Wall Street gamblers. Finally, repealing Dodd-Frank Financial Reform and Consumer Protection Act would put American consumers, working families, businesses, and the entire world financial systems at greater risk than ever before. In short, it will be a disaster without Dodd-Frank Financial Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
