SF Mayor Gavin Newsom Uses Technology

leave a comment »

SF Mayor Gavin Newsom is using technology very effectively to push for becoming the Governor of California. He is attempting to takeover and improve on what Governor Schwarzenegger has done in California. Many Californians blame Governor Schwarzenegger for doing a poor job with the California economy. Gavin Newsom feels that he can do a much better job and has many backers including former President Bill Clinton.

The California economy is so fragmented that it’s going to take a huge effort to repair and rebuild the CA economy. There are even counties that are claiming bankruptcy in California and are out of money. Cities are increasing traffic patrols to be more diligent in handing out tickets just to raise money for local government.

President Obama Improves Military Gay Rights

leave a comment »

Now this is a very touchy subject and I have to applaud President Obama for going all the way on this issue. I have to admit that I grew up playing football in the midwest and in Texas. If a dude was even close to being thought of as gay, he was completely ostracized and sometimes actually physically hurt by people that I knew. Not a good thing but it’s the truth.

President Obama on Gays In the Military

I know many soldiers as I worked with a large Federal Government Prime Contractor that provides personnel to the United States Army bases across the world. I always dealt with soldiers and I’ve been on three army bases in and around Atlanta, GA. I have spoken at length with soldiers at lunch and at dinner. This issue is not an easy issue to support.

Yes, I know people will say times have changed and you should support everything and everybody in this world but that’s not always the truth. Being a mans man, having a gay soldier next to you would prove an issue when it comes to issues of war. Not from a fighting standpoint but from a lifestyle standpoint. When you are in a tent and sharing close quarters with people, it is tough for heterosexual men to easily feel at ease with gay men and probably vice versa.

I know gay soldiers can fight and do just as well as anyone else. I think the real issue lies in the normal lifestyle stuff. When you’re in a desert walking around tired, lonely, and dodging RPG’s (rocket propelled grenades), you don’t want to think that the dude next to you loves men. It’s been a camaraderie thing for years. Men just bond with men who exhibit manly characteristics especially in environments like football and war. Even if a dude is strong as an ox and tough as hell, if he claims he’s gay and loves men, he is immediately ostracized in an environment where everyone needs to stick together to stay alive. Tough issue.

White Americans Lead The UnInsured in America

leave a comment »

I was watching some staunch Republican gentleman on TV discuss how he felt blacks and latino’s were the cause of weighing down the health insurance system and as the savior to America he didn’t want to pay for lazy people to have insurance and he was a hard worker.

Somehow, this guy thinks and truly believes he’s the only hard working red blooded American standing in the United States. Let’s examine his reality.

America's Uninsured Simply Need Healthcare

America's Uninsured Simply Need Healthcare

In 2008, the United States had a 15.5% uninsured rate for all races. This means that 46 million Americans were without some sort of insurance. If any of these 46 million Americans get sick, have an ailment, break an ankle, get cancer, get the H1N1 flu virus, baby gets really sick and needs a kidney transplant, etc, these 46 million Americans get NO help and cannot go to the hospital and get well. They will simply have to tough it out because the staunch Republican dude says he’s NOT responsible for their well-being.

Out of the 46 Million uninsured Americans, 34 Million of them are White Americans. 7 Million of those are Black Americans. 857,000 of them are American Indian and Alaska Native, 2 Million of them are Asian, and 14 Million of them are Hispanic. These numbers are fact and generated from The United States Census Bureau.

This begs the question, Why did President Bush earmark and get a war chest of billions of dollars to fight a war, yet Republicans continue to shoot down President Obama’s health plan for Americans? What is the hidden message? Do they not wish to take care of their own fellow white Americans? Why not help all Americans have simple health coverage regardless of their ethnic background?

President Obama For The Win

with one comment

It’s Friday night and I just had to say to President Obama that we are for you and support you. In a very interesting and negative Republican world, there is still a ground swell of support from the United States and the world at large. It will be tough to pass health care legislation for all United States Citizens, primarily because the United States was never meant to be a socialistic type of country.

The United States does not care about it’s people. It is obvious and it never has. The country would rather spend billions fighting a war and never take care of it’s own citizens. We live in a strict capitalistic society where the sentiment is “each man for himself”. It’s always been like this and always will be like this. I do, however, vote for change.

I’m a realist too though and know America. If America wanted to take care of it’s people, it would have done so 50 years ago. Instead, our country is built on greed and capitalistic power. It is built on a foundation of free labor and maximizing profit. This is why every corporations mission is to now send as many jobs as possible overseas to other countries in a time when America needs the employment bad.

The September 2009 unemployment rate nationwide was 9.8%. Shouldn’t jobs and healthcare be every Americans issue? It’s not. The Republicans try at every angle to make President Obama out to look like a fool and they somehow believe that they are the only ones with jobs and have to pay taxes to take care of our people. I have a company and my taxes are high as ever but I don’t mind taking care of American citizens. It’s my duty and privilege as an American. It’s only right to pay into the Social Security system and help the well being of all American citizens.

Big ups to President Obama and keep up the grind and the hustle, big dawg!

The Murder of the Middle Class in America

with 7 comments

I write for an online newspaper, The Atlanta Examiner. I wrote an article awhile back discussing how H1B Visa’s are responsible for murdering the middle class in America. I’ve had some very, very interesting and heated responses on this article. I’ve had 78 comments on this one article alone.

Middle Class workers are extinct

Middle Class workers are extinct

I’ve had immigrants who are on H1B Visa and who want to keep their jobs and stay in America and I’ve had true American grit respond who have lost their homes, cars, families, and plain lifestyle. I notice the H1B Visa dudes accuse me of not being intelligent, typical Indian opinion of black Americans, and say all Americans need to get smarter to keep their jobs.

Save 40% on The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown

My cousin works at a very well known bank in the San Francisco Bay Area. The bank has outsourced banking and it’s associated activities to India. The American workers are training the staff in India to come up to speed and the bank has said that they are keeping all workers over here in the United States. Several Indian employees in India make it well known via email how great they are and how they are able to do a better job than the Americans. Why? They want to get out of India and come unseat the American worker ASAP.

The H1B program is specifically for specialized talent to come to the USA and work to augment American workers. I see this program as successful for brain surgeons and NFL quarterbacks. Very rare talent to find. A bank employee? A Java developer? A .Net developer? You mean to tell me that American corporations cannot find this talent in America? I don’t believe it at all. No amount of selling this to me will convince me that I’m an idiot and that Indian workers are smarter than me.

American corporations that continue this practice of lowering costs and displacing American workers are murdering the middle class in America. Let the flame throwers throw their fire. I don’t care. This has eroded the American worker family, health, emotional stability, and financial well being. And yes, I’ve heard it all and that immigrants are the best thing since sliced bread and Americans are the laziest beings on earth. If this were true, why is the cat from Bangladesh fervently trying to leave his country and get seated in California for a job?

Why does he love America so much and not love his own country? I’m not saying this in hate. I’m saying this because Americans need the jobs to ensure a thriving middle class. No middle class means the economic destruction of America. No president, congress person, mayor, or anyone can save this economy until they save and put Americans back to work right now. Not in two years.
