Worst of Two Evils…

Are Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, as our only real Presidential Candidates for 2016, a punishment from God for the greed and corruption that our nation and people are inflicting on ourselves?

Why didn’t I think of this before…

Everyone: Write in your vote in November 2016, whether you are for Trump, Clinton, Sanders, or any of the other previous candidates or someone who isn’t running for president (including yourself). They need to count all of the write-ins by hand, so…if enough of us write in our vote, it may have a strong effect on future elections, and it may bring many of the rats out of the wood pile.
Reasons: 1) We may be able to cripple the Electoral College who places votes for us (and in many cases, aren’t required to vote the way we want to). The Electoral College is basically made up of Electorates that are voted into their position by the political parties that ‘We The People’ don’t trust anymore. Our votes don’t directly count anymore, so too many people don’t vote at all since some political party (possibly not their party) will make up their minds for them anyway. 2) If enough people write in their votes on the East Coast, their states polls won’t be final until Alaska and Hawaii polls are closed. This prevents people and Electors from the western part of the nation from ‘voting for the winner’ which could sway the final election toward someone that will do more harm to our nation, than good. 3) We can show the government how We want the country to run, and we can stop the bullying from Congress and bad presidents when they decide to give themselves a raise and benefits that don’t apply to us, when everyone else is losing money and jobs.
If all goes well with this plan, it could take weeks or months to count all of the write-in ballots, which would be the First Action of the People (Citizens), will have been able to take against a rotten apple (Congress) in decades.
If you have other thoughts as to why this would work, please comment with initials or your name and city and state, so that I can give you the credit for your ideas (or if you don’t want to be identified, tell me that also please include your city and state with anonymous). I will update this next week if we get some good ideas!
Thank You People of the United States of America for helping me to drive out the bad seeds before the weeds take over!!! 🙂

$15 per hour minimum wage is a failure for our nation…

If you raise minimum wage to $15 per hour, everyone who was making $7.25 (National minimum wage today) to those who were making $15 per hour, will all be making minimum wage. If you were making $20 per hour because you started at minimum wage and worked your way up (that’s almost $14 per hour difference), you will NOT be guaranteed to make more than $7 above minimum wage. Right now in North Dakota, for the working population, $20 per hour is very high wages. My next job will be closer to $12 per hour instead of being close to $20 per hour, and I have been working for 35 years, so a national increase to $15 per hour should bring me up to minimum wage. Now my own government wants to increase my soon to be wages to minimum wage and those who worked hard and increased their wages over time, will also be making close to, if not, minimum wage.  This brings everyone that was making up to $20 per hour down to the poverty level.  Social Services should increase exponentially.  Nice??? 😦

Job Seekers and the Employer

Based on the Article from J.T. O’Donnell J.T. O’Donnell is a LinkedIn Influencer
CEO of CAREEREALISM & CareerHMO | Recruiting | Employment Branding | Job Search | Career Development Training | Coach

Recruiters need to seriously consider how they are rejecting candidates this year. It could be damaging your employment brand…http://bit.ly/1OohWjM

My Thoughts: If you only drop off an app, and don’t get an interview, you maybe don’t need to be notified, but if you’ve had an interview, it shows bad taste on the employers part not to notify you of your status, whether you remain under consideration after a month, or if you were not selected for the current position, but will remain on their radar, or if they didn’t think that you would be a good fit whatsoever.
Also, there should be employer protections from a bad employee for giving an honest reference of their work. Why do you think that the work ethic has gone down the toilet? If I’m running a business, I want good people to start with. Good employers and good wages are also built from responsible employees. If employers can only trust that the employees will be there for them on payday, the employee gains no value in the eyes of the employer, and the employer has no recourse against a bad employee without reams of documentation. This leads to the employer not caring for the employee, the employee under-performs and the viscous cycle begins. Wages go lower for the same work, higher education levels are expected for the lower positions with the same crappy wages. We are feeding the poverty monster by creating employers that don’t care and employees that aren’t going to work hard because the phone is more important, or they are just plain lazy because the next employer can’t hear about bad performance. (Big part of the Corporate World also).

Now I’m looking for work again, and a smooth talker with a texting fetish is more likely to get the next job than I am.

Separation of Church and State

The U.S. Government seems to think that eliminating church from government grounds is separating Church and State. They are seriously mistaken. If the Ten Commandments is on government grounds, they have no legal right to have it removed. That would cause infringement of government on religion. If they had the Ten Commandments removed from government grounds, they are required to have them put back. The only way that the government is allowed to remove that from government grounds is if they can show that the ruling to put the Ten Commandments on government grounds in the first place, was infringing on Separation of Church and State.
Further, the government, the courts, nor anyone else, can tell a student, teacher, government employee, voter, child, or anyone in this country, that they can’t include a prayer in their commencement speech or any other speech or conversation on any U.S. soil (including government grounds) as they will be infringing on your rights to religious freedom. Also, they can allow a moment of silence before meals, as long as they don’t specify which religion it is for, for people to say a prayer, before the meal (aloud or silently), as they did when I went to Air Force Basic Training.
Last but not least, the government (Obama specifically) cannot allow a religion of their choice, to do something on Government Property without allowing All religions to do the same.

More to come…

My response to another blogs post on reviewing applications to Yale.

I would never hope to get into Harvard or Yale because I see those students jumping to the top of their respective fields without ever experiencing the hard work that it takes as you try to work your way up the food chain instead of having someone giving it to you without the experience.  Those who start at the top and DO NOT understand what it is like to work their way up, or get stuck in a stagnant job because of the snob mentality at the top, create rules that they learned in a book, or a the top of a corporate ladder, and more often than not, hold back the company if they don’t cause complete failure.  Those who don’t move up through the knowledge of the company can get complacent more easily because they are held back for reasons such as ‘we can leave them in their position because they are good at it, and we need someone in that position who knows what they are doing’.  Yes, they DO know what they are doing, and without those people, the company would, and often does fail as they no longer see reasonable pay increases, declining benefits, and zero upward mobility, and eventually, getting laid off before they can achieve a reasonable retirement after putting heart and soul into the company for many years.  The top of the corporate chain looks at everyone but themselves as expendable until one corporation buys other companies and corporations, and kicks out all of the top level with less than they feel that they were worth (even though they may not have had any value toward the company in the first place).

The German people were willingly oblivious to the things the Nazi’s were doing…

The citizens of the United States are willingly oblivious to the things the U.S. Government are doing, and what the citizens are doing themselves. Every purchase made by U.S. citizens, of items made in Communist Countries, helps to pay for their nuclear weapons programs, and their military buildup against the free-world. Even most of the items sold on military bases are made in Communist Countries, including rank, ribbons, badges, uniforms, etc.

When Congress allows the President and the Supreme Court, to make law without their approval, or ours, or they declare that our votes are unconstitutional, they are helping to eliminate the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, and the Constitution. Once those documents are destroyed, so will be the United States as a free nation. Many other free nations rely on the United States to support and defend them, and when the United States can no longer defend itself, the smaller free nations will not be able to defend themselves, and there won’t be backup support for the other free nations, and the free world, computers, cell phones, cable television, your overpriced over computerized cars, and a whole other host of things to make your life easier, will vanish from your lives, while whatever is left of the rich people and the vanishing middle class, will be gone.  You too will be working at the job that you’ve worked so hard for, for many years, on minimum wage.  When the slugs that will never make more than minimum wage talk Congress into increasing minimum wage to $15 per hour, inflation will increase like you will never believe, and if you worked your way up from minimum wage to $15 per hour, you will be lucky to make $1 over minimum wage.

Don’t be oblivious to the things that our government are doing to us, or you will be caught with nothing, and no way to defend yourself in the future.
