Rebuilding Louisiana

In this great country, we have the ability to have our own political views, and opinions. There are so many citizens across the land, and there is no way that everyone is going to agree on every aspect of every variable of American policies. Maybe we both agree in free speech, but we think that certain conversations should be held with respect to the rights of others. For example, we universally agree that it is not acceptable to attack people and speak aggressive towards them, because they have a different political perspective. Trump supporters have it all wrong. Rich, or poor, black or white, we should be able to agree that human lives are more important than money. And if it’s money that the government is trying to conserve by not exhausting every possible resource available to help the victims of the rainstorms and flooding in Baton Rouge, then we should all be afraid. Our government would rather perform a financial risk assessment analysis before stepping in to provide aid to innocent victims of a tragedy that they had no control over. Let that sink in for a moment, that is truly a shame, and the entire political system needs to be deconstructed and rebuilt. When the first hurricane devastated Louisiana area this was back in early 2000’s when Hurricane Katrina left hundreds of thousands of citizens displaced and forced New Orleans residents to relocate to new cities and even into new states. It took those residents nearly a decade before they were able to return back to a normal state of life in the homes they had abandoned years before. When it came time to collect the insurance for the damage done to their homes, FEMA ended up giving residents a menial amount of money to help them rebuild in comparison to the amount of work needed to hire contractors to rebuild their homes. The average insurance claim amount was approximately $3300. That won’t even cover the cost for materials to have floors replaced, or have new exterior siding restored, or new roofing installed after the storm, or any type of major home restoration project. How was it that the citizens were able to persevere during this tough time is unknown. What we do know is that the resilience of the of the American working class needs to be credited for their ability to bounce back in the face of such adversity. How disgraceful that the media machine, and political powers that be have turned a blind eye to this disaster. My family and I plan to donate heavily; not only in finances but also reaching out to general contractors who are willing to donate their construction services at a lower rate Continue reading …

The Flood Waters Of Louisiana

The recent flooding disaster that took place in Baton Rouge Louisiana is being called one of the most destructive natural disasters in America since Hurricane Sandy. But for some reason there has not been a lot of media coverage from any major new source highlighting the devastation. It has been covered as a second story only to new about the presidential candidates, and police shooting unarmed citizens across the country. The flooding first occurred on August 12 and left thousands of people displaced and forced evacuations across the entire city and adjacent towns and parishes. Many residents have been forced to take up temporary shelters with their families in other cities where the ground is above the sea level and they are safe from flood waters. The amount of damage that has been reported is estimated in to be nearing the amount of $60 million dollars. Homes and businesses in Baton Rouge are empty, and the entire city, has been shut down. Schools, public offices and most businesses are not operating. Many families are forced to live in large gymnasiums with no privacy, no guaranteed spot and limited access to basic needs such as food, water, and medical supplies. More importantly it’s hard for people to keep a normal state of life, as people who are depending on their incomes to help them get back on their feet, are having trouble finding ways to get back to work. Major roads and highways are closed, and some residents are improvising by getting around on small boats and skimmers. The trouble started when over 25 inches of rain hit Baton Rouge on Thursday night. That happened in a matter of several hours, so there was not enough time to warn citizens before 911 calls started pouring in from residents who were trapped in their home, or cars when flash floods sealed them into their vehicles. Nearly 50,000 homes have been declared damaged and as roads and major streets are flooded, the entire area has been completely shut down. According to the American Red Cross they need donations of food, water, cleaning supplies, clothing, and basic toiletries. They’re currently preparing themselves for a huge undergoing for this new relief campaign that should cost anywhere in the neighborhood of $35 million. So the question is why aren’t people talking about this? It seems that the media coverage on the presidential election has taken priority over the lives of citizens. It is my hope that on the next presidential debate that someone in the audience has the courage to ask one of the candidates why more support wasn’t given to the citizens who suffered in the natural disaster in Baton Rouge. I hate to be the Continue reading …

Abraham Lincoln

Hello everybody, we are back with another post for you guys. Today is a little bit off topic because we are not talking about the current presidential debates but we thought we would do a 180 and talk about some of our presidential history.  Today we will be talking about Abraham Lincoln and how he impacted this country and we can uncover how those changes are still affecting America today. First off, we think that Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address was one of the greatest speeches ever given in the history of America. Abraham Lincoln was a man that was able to bring together so many  diverse cultures and really changed America for generations of citizens and immigrants. We are talking about a man who was able to abolish slavery, at a time when it may not have been the most popular thing to do. If it were not for Abraham Lincoln who knows where we would be today. We would probably still be waving around a bunch of Confederate flags and drinking moonshine.  Abraham Lincoln was able to overcome many obstacles and ultimately win the Civil War. That was a war that tore the country apart, and literally had family members fighting on opposite sides of the conflict. One can only imagine what America would be like today, if citizens in Southern states are still waving the flag of the combatant that lost the war. Imagine if someone went around flying a English flag at City Hall in your town? Or if they decided to hoist the flag of USSR or Cuba in your local post office?  On top of the big accomplishment of getting rid of slavery, Abraham Lincoln was a man that did many many great things in his lifetime. Let’s talk about some of the history of Abraham Lincoln. 

Presidential Domain Wars Between Bush and Trump

Thanks for tuning in again. There is some funny news going on, and of course it’s related to the 2016 presidential candidate race for the Republicans. What a special breed of people we have this year. Considering that I took the time to take the steps required to build and breath life into this website, I thought this topic would be great to discuss as it pertains to the shift in how voters are making decisions in our current digital age. One interesting note to make it that major companies also invest heavily into building a corporate brand with a strong online presence. Donald Trump has recently taken advantage of the power of the web and has deployed a team of intelligent and very capable web developers who were able to determine that presidential candidate Jeb Bush, had a domain that was registered years ago, and was now reaching the end of the terms where the domain would be protected from others purchasing rights to the name. It’s like buying a car, missing the payments, watching it get repossessed and sold into auction to your next door neighbor who also is dating your ex-girlfriend. Cold as ice. But also stable as ice. Stable as ice, on a hot, black plate, in high noon, in a Arizona summer. What this means is that at a certain point in time somebody in the Jeb Bush camp bought the rights of the domain Jebbush.com. Which is a great site to own if your first name is Jeb, and your last name is Bush and you are running for president of the United States. But then that expiration date came up. And the prestiguous site name went into the hands of your competitor. Each and every piece of literature with the propaganda that supports the Bush campaign is now being redirected to and adding some exposure to the Donald Trump website. Numbers never lie, and numbers and statistics is what everybody is basing his entire voting situation on. Right? Aren’t elections based on some weird concept, where candidates become elected officials based on their leadership and appeasement to issues that affect the general consensus of voters? This race is based on defacing the rivals. No one knows what any of these fellows are about, but it seems that the writing is again on the wall. Just when you thought it was safe, here comes Jeb doing with Jeb does best to date; “Jebbed” up another situation. The last time you checked in, Brother Jeb was begging for applause. Recently, he’s been begging for his brother to come out and speak on his behalf. Yeah, but you can’t get the respect of the young voters, Continue reading …

What Is Jeb Bush Doing

If no one will clap for him, how will they vote for him? If they don’t vote for him, how will he win? He can’t win. It’s starting to become clear the he might not even get nominated. Republicans will have to ask themselves the question of which is the lesser of two evils, or in this case three. At this point in the race, the voters in Iowa have decided that it’s time to thin out the herd in the race for the Republican nomination. With O’Malley suspending his campaign on the first night in Iowa, we see what it looks like to accept reality. Someone in O’Malleys camp told him that it’s time to stop. But there lies a candidate that fails to see where the glimmer of hope does not exists. This is the son and brother of former Commander in Chief(s), Jeb Bush. Republican voters will now have to decide between pick incompetence in Bush, radical changes with Trump or maintaining the status quo with Cruz. Jeb can’t even persuade voters at a recent speech that his position on certain issues just aren’t strong enough to justify showing support in the form of consensual clapping. He had to tell, or rather beg, people in the audience to clap in support of his sentiments about the economy, national security and healthcare reform. It almost feels like the race in 2012, without a filter to qualify candidates. in the 2016 election we have a former reality TV celebrity, a neurosurgeon, and a senator with confirmed birth records that he was born abroad. Not sure what the loophole is with Ted Cruz, but no one is persecuting this man the way the media did to a certain presidential candidate back in 2008, and again in 2012. Where on earth is Mitt Romney when we need him? Grand Old Mitt decided to sit out the 2016 presidential race to clear the lane for Jeb Bush. Some plan that turned out to be. Right now the biggest thing moving and shaking up the Republican party is Donald Trump. Whenever there has been a genuine topic of political discussion, Trump has used every tactic in the schoolyard book of bullying to bring the level of political debates down to levels where calling people “ugly” and “losers” have become commonplace. In no way shape of form is this serving as an endorsement for Trump, but one has to give credit for his uncanny ability to manipulate the media circus to keep him in the center ring. Which states will provide the writing on the wall that these candidates need to see in order for them to do whats right for America, and not Continue reading …

Welcome to My Website!

I decided to switch gears on what I was going to do with this website. Rather than promote my projects, I plan to use this site for the sole purpose of discussing all of the new you developments that are happening with the recent 2016 presidential election. This race so far has been one of the most entertaining to follow. However, it’s also one of the most frightening. The reason being is when you look at the list of candidates on either side of the party separation line, the American voters have put themselves in a position to choose between candidates that are either lacking in some type of integrity lacking in Clinton over her email investigation from the FBI, or lacking in some form of experience via Carson, or uneasy about the current state of economic standards and how business is handled America and suggests socialist ideals in the form of Sanders or just won’t complete right wing psychosis and fear mongering rhetoric compliments of Trump. Now I know that sounds like a very abysmal situation to be in as an American voter with just one year left to decide who will be the president and leader of the most powerful country in the free world. Excuse me, not a year, it’s February, so election day is in just a matter of a few months. As of now Donald Trump seems to be gaining a lot of media coverage, and is gaining support from hard-core radical right wingers who want to change the current state of American public policy. Guns for everyone. Build a wall. And we have to wonder about what does it really say about what is it that Americans are looking for in a presidential candidate. As of now would just 7 months to decide who will be will be our next president. We still have no idea on any type of plan or structured format to completely redo what Obama’s done over the last eight years all we know is that they want to do something different. For example Trump is going on record saying that he’ll bring back waterboarding and worse. What exactly is worse? That’s scary if we can ask the question nor will he answer it without calling another candidate “a pussy.” There’s an old saying when it comes to how children imitate or emulate the actions and behaviors of their parents. That saying is, “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” Can we assume the same thing about Trump voters. Is he rallying the support of people that are not levelheaded enough to make rational decisions in the midst of adversity, and as a result out of the panic and Continue reading …
