Socialism at its Best

Our President has smartly driven Americans apart, made promises on the backs of entitlements, and created an embattled budget that will drive America into bankruptcy. His socialistic tools are Obama care, The National Debt, extreme Government control over our earnings, our health, and our security, and lastly disavowing the Constitution of the United States.  

He has driven Americans apart with his pledges to attack income inequality. His version of this is to entitle those who are have-nots. But true Americans understand it is not the Haves versus the Have-nots. It is a division between those who work and those who don’t. It is a division between those who make the correct choices and those who do not. For example, those who go to college, get a degree, and graduate, will earn more than those who do not.   Women who have children within the arms of marriage will have more than those who have children out-of-wedlock. Those who work hard and make the right choices earn more than those who do not.

Now our President is driving many Americans into the have not category without their having any choice which is a right!.  According to the OBM, 2.5 million jobs will be lost due to Obama care. More will be dependent on the government, unable to drive themselves forward and out of the lower level of the financial basement. He is taking away our freedoms.

Socrates said keep them hungry but don’t let them starve. Is this Obama’s Plan?

In Illuisons A Republic Lost A young girl experiences a bankrupted country, wearies from the emptiness of freedoms lost, and realizes that America is a lost republic.

Brain Swimming

         ??????????????????????????????????????    Brain Swimming is a sport taken on by individuals who are burdened by worry and major decisions that must be made when one is in financial trouble. All of a sudden you have no money and a great deal of time on your hands. If you were working like you wanted and were able to, then you wouldn’t have any extra time for worrying, right?

         I have worked since I was 14, nearly forty-eight years! You know how it is, get up, shower and put your face on, get kids up and dressed, feed them, check book bags, pack lunches and get them to the bus stop, drive to work and do the grind responsibly for eight hours (now its more like ten), pick up kids from daycare, make sure they get to ballet or soccer or whatever; then go home to fix dinner, go over homework, get them clean and in bed, after which you do laundry, grade papers, make lesson plans and on and on until 11 p.m. or 12 p.m., finally sinking in bed for a wonderful six hours of sleep, knowing that it all will begin again shortly. There doesn’t seem much time for intimacy or just reading a good book. That is why we take vacations to get away from the grind.

         Unfortunately in 2009 my husband lost his job at the age of 59. Fifty-nine is not a good age to lose your job. In 2010 I had a bout of hypoglycemia and was left in the care of third graders because no adult could come relieve me. The American for Disabilities Act requires that diabetics be allowed fifteen minutes to take care of hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia.  This was a recent addition to the disabilities act and I was unaware of it.

So in 2010 I retired for my health.

         This is when I began brain swimming. I had major dreams and an unbelievable memory of them. My dreams were about money and the lack of it both personally and in our country. I looked at the reason that my husband lost his job and why he could not find a new one. Why had the school system ignored my health needs? The answers to these questions became certain because I had time to research them, talk to people about them and think about them nearly all of the time. Then those dreams began running in my head like movies.

         That is when I wondered if I could represent the USA in Olympic Brain Swimming. Of course not, but I could write and I did. Therein was the birth of Illusions, A Republic Lost.
