Open Message to “Occupy Wall Street”

Dear Occupy Wall Street:

GROW UP!

Hi, my name is Deanna. I work hard and go to school. I’m paying a lot of money for school because I want to better myself. I work hard at my job because I believe the American Dream is earned, not given by the government. I take out student loans, and I understand why they need to be paid back. I went two years without health care and didn’t complain. I live within my means and do not blame any one else for any debt that I accrue. I am in the Tea Party. I do not get paid for that, I do not quit my job to participate. I do not call for violence or violate the law in my protest. I do not violate property rights. I know what I believe in:

God

The Sanctity Of Life

A Small Government

Low Taxes

Hard Work

I don’t expect anyone to give me things for free. I don’t think the government is my sugar daddy. I might fall in the category of “poor” but I do not blame wall street, and I know that increasing taxes on the people who create jobs in this country will NOT CREATE JOBS!

So I have some advice for you:

Go Home

Take a Shower

Go to class

Get a Job

Get off your butt

Work Hard

GROW UP AND STOP BLAMING EVERYONE ELSE FOR YOUR PROBLEMS!!!!!!

Vote 2010

Two years ago I wrote the following

So I just wanted to remind everyone that the fight for American values is not over, rather it has just begun. We can not give up hope, we must stand together stronger than ever. All that is required for evil to prosper is for good men (and women) to do nothing. So do something! Keep your voice, shares your values, stand up for what is right, no matter how hard it gets.

And you guys did NOT disappoint! Two years later and the Tea Party has blossomed, launching a new generation of conservatives into the public spotlight; Republicans will take over the House by midnight, and might take over the Senate as well! Gubernatorial races are running strong red and things are looking bright indeed for the future of our nation!

But it still isn’t over- YOU MUST GO VOTE!

Hundreds of thousands of brave men and women have died so that you could cast your ballot. So go vote, and PLEASE- vote CONSERVATIVE!!!!

Mauling Memorial Day

In 2008 I had the honor of being present at the Memorial Day service at Arlington National Cemetary, and it was one of the most heart wrenching experiences I have ever had. Surrounded by families of the fallen, watching President Bush lay a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, as TAPS played… it still brings tears to my eyes.

This year will be different- our President will not be at Arlington to honor the fallen men and women who gave their “last full measure of devotion” to their country. He will not look into the eyes of the families and friends of those who died to protect our country, to preserve our freedom. He will not listen to TAPS, or lay a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. No, Obama has decided to skip Memorial Day in order to go home to Chicago.

This is unacceptable, this is a slap in the face to the brave men and women who day after day put their lives on the line for you, for me, AND for him. And instead of honoring them properly, he is leaving D.C. to go visit friends from the dirty Chicago political machine.

The Gold Star families, who have lost their sons and daughters overseas deserve better, they deserve a President who appreciates the sacrifice that their precious children made on his behalf. They deserve to be looked in the eyes and told how much they mean to the people of this great nation.

But Obama doesn’t honor these men and women- these sons and daughters, moms and dads, brothers and sisters, these loved ones that laid down their lives. Instead of honoring them, he goes around APOLOGIZING for them. Instead of paying homage to these amazing men and women, he makes their sacrifices and courage out to be “arrogance” and “empire building.”

As a grand-daughter of a Marine that barely survived the battle of the Chosin Reservoir, and as a sister of an Airman fighting in the Middle East right now, it’s the final straw. I never liked him, but now I officially DESPISE him.

 His blatant disrespect for our Armed Forces and the valiant men and women who DIE every day so that you and I can be free, takes away any respect due to him as President. I will never again honor him with that title, he doesn’t deserve it, he is a traitor to our brave men and women. From now on he will be Mr. Obama to me.

 And Mr. Obama- I can’t wait till 2012 when I can vote for someone who actually DESERVES the title of the President of The United States!

Have you Forgotten?

On September 11, 2001, President Bush offered these words:
“Today, our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under attack in a series of deliberate and deadly terrorist acts. The victims were in airplanes or in their offices: secretaries, business men and women, military and federal workers, moms and dads, friends and neighbors. Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror. The pictures of airplanes flying into buildings, fires burning, huge structures collapsing, have filed us with disbelief, terrible sadness, and a quiet, unyielding anger. “
 
It was with this quiet and unyielding anger that Congress approved “The War on Terror”. Seven years later, and all I hear is people complaining and protesting this war. What happened to our anger? What happened to wanting justice for the men and women who didn’t know that September 11 would be their last? People decry the loss of American soldiers, yet they seek to render the cause they died for pointless; they want us to give up.
 
President Bush ended his speech with this, “This is a day when all Americans from every walk of life unite in our resolve for justice and peace. America has stood down enemies before, and we will do so now. None of us will ever forget this day, yet we go forward to defend freedom, and all that is good and just in our world.”
 
I look at our country today asking, have you forgotten? …I haven’t. God Bless America
