Look at me now, baby! That’s usually a phrase someone would say when they’ve achieved something that no one thought could be done or was, at least, unlikely. For example, I got my master’s degree. I, for one, never thought it would happen, but it did. I know several people who figured I’d drop out of college before getting my bachelor’s, let alone my MBA. So, that’s where I would say “look at me now!” However, this is a different story attached to the phrase.
There is a lot of tension in the nation right now. The government is failing, they are on a partial shut down, the deadline for the debt ceiling is looming just days away, VA disability payments likely will not go out next month, federally subsidized state programs are closing, and the food stamp program went offline when Xerox had a “power outage.”
Do you remember the Generation X? Remember how the older generations acted like the kids who were nothing but trouble? I do. I’m from Generation X. So are many others in important positions.
I also remember there were many that said Generation X would change the world. I remember MTV used to celebrate the GenX-ers. Albeit, I assume it was for marketshare as they dumped Gen X for Gen Y eventually.

It’s called the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), and it’s a super secret trade pact being negotiated completely outside of law, with no congressional authority but with the aim of forcing nations around the world to ban GMO labeling, embrace Monsanto’s GMO crops and keep pharmaceutical prices artificially high to enrich the world’s medication monopolists.
The following is a post from Todd Starnes at Fox News. The reason I’m just posting his work is that I couldn’t have said it better myself and I have a sensitivity training thing to go to. Yeah, me… Like I’m not sensitive to the feelings of others. Kidding, it’s actually an agency wide program we all have to go through. Anyway, enjoy the following and tell me your thoughts on it. Personally, I think it’s total BS and that our country has gone completely freakin’ haywire.
Welfare pays more than a minimum-wage job in 35 states, creating little incentive for Americans to take entry-level work and likely increasing their long-term dependency on government help, according to a new study by the libertarian think tank Cato Institute.
I grew up in a small town in southern Oklahoma called Duncan. You may have seen the news recently about a murder there. Australian exchange student Chris Lane was jogging Friday and was gunned down by 3 punk kids. The suspects later confessed to the killing and claimed they wanted to know how it felt and that they were bored. It is also reported that they admitted they were on the way to kill another teen. Kudos to the Duncan Police Department for stopping them before anyone else got killed. However, there’s still something troubling me about this story. No conspiracy, no cloak and dagger, just troubling.
The Muslim Brotherhood claims they want peaceful protests across Egypt. If that’s the case, then why are the Christian churches going up in flames? Why are the pastors and church staff being kidnapped and killed? See the list for all the Christian churches that have been attacked in this “peaceful protest.
We’ve all heard all the political correctness crap out there. You can say this, you can’t do that because someone will be offended. Political correctness has changed so much in this country that you almost never know what to say without risking too much. It’s sad. It’s sad that a liberal agenda has pushed society in a direction that limits your speech and actions out of fear that you may offend someone.
Am I afraid to offend you? Are you afraid to offend me? Well, I know I’m not afraid of offending anyone and I hope you’re not afraid, either. However, the numbnuts in Seattle have taken political correctness to a new low. Their fear of offending someone will paralyze them eventually; it always does. It’s just a matter of time.
