What’s On Your Mind • American Values are Eroding

By Gary Triplett For years, the United States has felt, since Clinton manipulated the markets that allowed for the huge real estate boom during his term. We’ve been paying for it ever since and have also given away our sense of family and God. Family has long provided that true teaching of right and wrong and of the “golden rule’ and love of neighbor with God as it’s base. However, greed and selfishness, with government policies, creates an extreme pressure upon these values as most, in the short term, go down the path of least resistance in order to get and have what they wish, at any expense to anyone else.

In other words, we have been lavishing in our extremes of pleasure while eliminating our industrial power. Mortgages to buy homes and property at artificially inflated prices have been plaguing us with foreclosures and government bailouts. The result has been that the rich get richer and the price tag has been greater national debt that is sold to China. Who will repay these debts and at what expense?

US Federal Government • Navigating to the “White House Blog”

By Gary Triplett Navigating to the “White House Blog”, I find it very difficult for anyone to post a comment, as other blogs. It seems to only be an advertisement to the Obama agenda.

Possibly we may find that the White House today is not concerned of the “people” that know less.

Videos • If I were the Devil – Paul Harvey’s 1965 speech

By Gary Triplett Long time radio newsman/commentator Paul Harvey created the original of this homily around 1965. It was updated as the years went by and therefore versions of it vary over time. It is a warning to America about its own decay.

What’s On Your Mind • Ode to Common Sense

By Gary Triplett

ODE TO COMMON SENSE
Obituary printed in the London Times…..Absolutely Brilliant !!

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense , who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:

– Knowing when to come in out of the rain;
– Why the early bird gets the worm;
– Life isn’t always fair;
– And maybe it was my fault.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.

It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense took a beating when you couldn’t defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death,
-by his parents, Truth and Trust,
-by his wife, Discretion,
-by his daughter, Responsibility,
-and by his son, Reason.

He is survived by his 5 stepbrothers;
– I Know My Rights
– I Want It Now
– Someone Else Is To Blame
– I’m A Victim
– Pay me for Doing Nothing

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone.

If you still remember him, share this with others. If not, join the majority and do nothing

Pennsylvania State Government • Pennsylvania man pays school property tax — all in $1 bills

By Gary Triplett An Easton, Pa. man, frustrated over property taxes, visited the local tax office and paid in dollar bills — all $7,143 of it.

One bill at a time.

Local news reports identify the man as Robert Fernandes of Forks Township.

The scene, posted on YouTube, has generated more than 15,600 views — in less than a week.

In the video, Fernandes carries a duffel bag filled with bundled bills, which he proceeds to stack on a counter. He brings doughnuts, offered to “anyone who is inconvenienced here today.”

The tax collector tells Fernandes his protest should probably be directed elsewhere, toward the school board, maybe, which is in charge of setting property tax rates.

“I’m not doing this to make anybody’s life more difficult,” Fernandes tells the collector. “Unfortunately, I wish the same could be said, you know, for me and many others whose lives are more difficult for having to pay property taxes.”

A letter to President Obama from Gary Triplett of Culpeper Virginia

By Gary Triplett We hire a president to make decisions, to be at the end of the line of those responsible for the affairs of our nation. We pay him well through direct pay and the lifetime of perks he receives. Few other jobs the people hire have such life-long personal perks for any employee. However, there are always excuses and allowances for the presidents mistakes and an ability to always excuse them to someone or something else. When will our president take responsibility any apply his integrity to to be responsible. News organizations always find a way to allow him the benefit of the doubt. We don’t pay him for that. We need a leader, someone that accepts responsibility and acts with great respect for the Constitution and personal freedoms.

Simply, we need a leader. Liberty, liberal, freedom should be for all. The government has a mandate to manage government… to protect those from outside and from within to harm our nation, to coordinate efforts of freedom and liberty and do ONLY as the Constitution clearly states. Any other activities by government are beyond our mandate of government.

Read this, Mr. President. Have respect for your employer. Although a limited time in your employee, you can still be fired for not doing what I pay you to do.
