FEMALE VOTERS – FIND US A PROVEN LEADER!

I have been working on this article for several weeks hoping to post it in time to hopefully remove the roadblock we have in the US Senate. 

Watching the news recently it appears that we will have an interesting Democratic battle for the 2016 Presidential nomination. Listening to the pundits it indicates that Hillary Clinton will have a strong challenge from Elizabeth Warren, Senator from Massachusetts.

 

Who is Elizabeth Warren? She is a master politician who bears the last name of her first husband. She has been married to her second husband, Bruce Mann, for 32 years. News related to her two children and three grandchildren is vaguely mentioned in her biographical information.

 
The motivation that urged me to write this article was it would be nice to see a female President in my lifetime. I’ve had a rather female influenced life that I would like to share. My mother raised me because in 1930 my father worked seven days a week until I was fifteen years old. My two grandmothers deeply influenced my life. Like Elizabeth Warren, I graduated high school at 16 and was married at 17. Like Ms. Warren, I married again and I have lived with and deeply love my wife, Norma, for fifty four years. I have five daughters, two daughters-in law, eight granddaughters, three granddaughters-in-law and four wonderful great granddaughters, so far. Can you match this female exposure in your lifetime?
 
My education and experience will parallel both of these career politicians but none of us are qualified to be President of the United States. For that analogy it is certain that after nearly six years, our current President is not qualified and has proven he is not a leader.
 
Ladies, women, girls, you have control of our destiny in America. You have been able to vote for nearly 100 years after far too many years of servitude. Male slaves were able to vote in the United States before a woman was given this “RIGHT”. Why?
 
Females proved they could influence elections many years ago and now occupy many political and government positions. The gain made by women to prove their leadership abilities in industry has been at warp speed. Look at the women that lead many large corporations that was earned by proving they were “LEADERS”. Elect the right leader and continue the fight for equality some feel is still not achieved by voting out your opponents one by one. Continue with using evolution not revolution currently being urged by our President.
 
For those of you that were mesmerized by Barak Obama and not only got him elected, you got him re-elected and you screwed up big time. No woman with any sense desires to face the prospect of eventually manipulated and controlled by a Muslim. History will prove that Obama is a Muslim in disguise and erasing the influence he has forced upon America will take a century to complete. He is his own “GOD” and watch his life erupt when his second term is over. His next term would be in prison if we had any leadership opposition to his desire to divide our nation. He has neutered our military leaders.
 
Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren are lawyers, master politicians and very powerful women. Even I applaud their courage to rally women rights but ladies these two people are not the leaders we need to return our freedoms we had when I was born. We need to renew our faith in God, bless our military and regain the leadership position of the free world we had for so many years.
 

A real leader will unite the people to work together again instead of making success a sin. We need to make sure our young girls never have to live under Sharia laws and return to a life of servitude far worse than my mother and grandmothers had to endure. I have a copy of my paternal grandmother’s first Poll Tax receipt that I have treasured.

 

There are many well qualified women leaders today that have proven their leadership ability in a man’s world, business. Find a woman who meets the leadership requirement to lead the United States into the future and I will scream my support with my last breath.

 

When you ladies decide who will be our next President, I have only one request for you to consider. Please do not pick a man or a woman who is a lawyer or a politician and for God’s sake don’t select one who is both. A true leader will make politics secondary to keeping us united whether they are a Democrat, Republican or an Independent.

When you get in the voting booth in November make sure you vote for the person who will unite us instead if dividing us like Obama has. Making sure we have a conservative Congress for the next two years is the most important vote we have had in America in my 84 years. I hope you agree?

EDUCATION DECLINES-COSTS GO UP, WHY?

 

 

There are major reasons why education today is tragically different from in the 1930’s and 1940’s when I was educated. One reason we have had a major decline in education in America is the parents. Mothers did not work and were there daily to teach you respect for others and monitor your every activity including discipline. Dads were available to teach you about work and prepare you for life. If you challenged your mother, dad would make sure you understood that mom was always right. I learned as much from my parents as I did in school. If I had problems in school or homework, they were always there to help me.

Teachers actually taught classes without any disruption as discipline was expected and enforced. Rule #1, with any disruption you would get embarrassed verbally by the teacher. Rule #2, if you disrupted the class the second time you were likely disciplined physically by the teacher. Rule #3, next you were escorted to the principal’s office for a guaranteed physical event to get your undivided attention. Rule #3 also included notifying your parents which would probably result in some form of a Rule #4, physical punishment. As I have never been one to enjoy pain of any description, I never faced Rules 2, 3, or 4.

Bad or poor grades were another event that would result in discipline. Being berated verbally and embarrassed in class by the teacher was common practice. Showing a bad report card to my mother resulted in the loss of something important was guaranteed.

 I challenge anyone to produce any facts that parents and discipline are not the primary reasons we have lost our position of leadership in education to second and third world rated countries today.

Why has this happened?  People now want more materialistic things before they can truly afford them. Case in point, I never owned a car until I was 23 years old, had served over four years in the U.S. Navy, and was married with two children. It took that long to amass enough assets to use as collateral to borrow the $100 to purchase a 1940 car in 1953. Today it is considered punishment if you do not get a car when you turn 16. The result today is both parents have to work to provide the funds to keep up with their peers. Larger homes, fancier cars, club memberships and designer apparel are necessities rather than dreams. This success caused resentment from those without the desire to work that hard.  

Another reason is society has digressed and accepted new moral standards. One parent families only existed when I was growing up as a result of a tragedy.  Today one parent families is as commonplace as the sun rising. The number of one parent families has skyrocketed out of sight. Children do not have the preparation or support necessary to understand the need for education, work and discipline. The same resentment from these children for lack of materialistic parity has created the increase in criminal activity and instead of getting educated they occupy the prisons.

The last reason is that teachers and administrators are no longer allowed to discipline a student. If they embarrass or berate a student today it will usually result in facing a raging parent. Even if they agree with the action, they are mad because they have to interrupt their work to get involved. If physical punishment was involved you can expect the parent, their attorney and litigation. Whether you know it or not, teachers today have to buy liability insurance to protect their family assets. Today parents fear litigation for any form of physical punishment of their own children. It would not surprise me to see parents having to buy liability insurance to protect them from their own children. Obamacare has recently mandated that your children are you’re your responsibility until they are 26. This illustration is just to remind you that we did not have as many lawyers when I was young. We had no television so there were no commercials every 15 minutes from lawyers begging you to sue anybody for anything possible.

If you doubt my wisdom, please take the time to go spend just one day with a teacher in a classroom that does not include your child. If every elected politician and judge at every level of government from Obama to your local level would observe, by video, a full day of a classroom, common sense change would happen.

Again I would appreciate “factual” data that refutes my claims from anyone, including a government agency and especially the U.S. Department of Education (DOE). If the DOE would just spend 10% of the billions addressing discipline and correcting the problem, it would help the teachers and administrators immensely.
