democrats



What happened last night? Romney got away with murder on middle class. No mention about 47%, No mention about Bain Capital, No mention “I like to fire people”, No challenging him on his Tax returns, no challenging Romney about shipping jobs overseas, No challenge on his investment in Cayenne Island, No going after him about his Romney Care. Millionaire tax cuts. How about Romney advocating to go

to war with Iran? No mention, nothing, Zero.
What happened to President Obama? Why did he look that flat? Why did he look so dehydrated? Why wasn’t he looking at Romney, and ask him questions about his flip flopping on issues? Why did he let Romney walk on him like that, without punching back? Could it be that, the president was dealing with some foreign policy issues during the day? Why did the president accept to have his first debate on his wedding day anniversary?
I mean Romney has said stupid stuff, and yet the president just stood there and said nothing about Romney’s record. The philosophical approach does not work when your opponent is taking you in a mud slide fight.
When somebody punches you hard, change your stance and punch harder. Romney is sitting on so many time bombs and yet, the president did not challenge Romney on any of his flip flopping stances. The mistake Democrats are making, is assuming all Americans are savvy, and know what’s going on.
Mr. President, your campaign advisor said Americans know the truth, and I am saying no they don’t. Many are not interested in reading long essays, or going to read on your website. They are babies. They need to be fed porridge every morning.
Not many people follow the blogs, or stick to a television set. A debate is a huge thing, and should not be underplayed. Many Voters wait for that moment, and President Obama just brought back Romney back in the race. He should have finished him off, by asking him to explain himself about the 47% remarks, About Bain Capital, and about how he, Romney was part of shipping jobs overseas. Again what happened to President Obama last night? I still do not trust Romney with the middle class and immigrants. So even if he shined on the first debate, having experience with Christ Christie, taught me a lesson not to trust anything that comes out of a Republican mouth.
 
 

Dear readers  of this blog,

I would like to apologize for being  quiet for a long time.  Time to get to work.

I can admit one thing, The rhetoric from both parties, Democrats and Republicans threw me off the cliff. The 2010 election, was so disgusting . As you can see , My last blog was in 2010. As many of you know I blogged a lot about politics, specifically election years, 2008, and 2010. The Rhetoric against immigrants and towards the sitting president turned me off. However, I am here to announce to you that I am back. I can’t sit back and just watch on the sideline. I will talk a lot about  immigration, since I am an immigrant. I will talk about the 2012 election, and I will call out any politician who is flip floping  just to win an election.

I will also talk a bit about my back ground, my native country, issues of my native country and what is going on outside this world for education purpose only.

Warning:  I am a well informed immigrant and, and registered Independent voter. If you punch me, I will punch back harder.

I am not afraid to call out hypocrisy, so fasten your belts, because  it’s going to get hot in here. At the end of the day we all want a peaceful happy America that gets along with many countries.

I am an Independent voter, and a proud immigrant, who not only pays attention to what politicians say, but also takes pride in helping others, and, the vulnerable in my community.I am a strong advocate for women across the globe as well.

I decided to change the title of this blog, so that it reflects, who I am. I am an immigrant, just like every person living in America. You are all immigrants, except the native Indians. Whether you crossed the ocean in 1607, or you came yesterday, the point is, it does not make you better than others who came after you.

I fully supported the sitting president in 2008, and guess what? I will still support him this year. Call me what you want , but truth is, I pay attention to details.

The fact that the Republican minority leader of the senate Mitch McConnell, and, the  leader of the house John Boehner, declared that they want to make sure president Obama is a one term president, I  can’t trust, or support any policians who just turn against his own sitting president in the time when this country needs to unite, especially after the election. Republicans and some Democrats could not put the party line aside and make a compromise, for the sake of your country.

It’s not that President Obama’s supporters threw him under the bus, the problem is, any normal American who  pays attention to politics , is disgusted with the system, where money is buying elections.

As long as no politician or any corporation pays my bills, you have no right to shut me up, especially when I pay my fair share of Taxes and you refuse to pay your share, you hide your taxes, you  dodge your obligation to pay your taxes, but come hard on a people  like me, expect me to follow all the laws, including paying my taxes.

That is why I am back, and that is why I am here to voice out my views and opinions.

Stay tuned for more …..


MY OPINION

November 02, 2010.

Vote Theise  For Congress. Today is Election Day. Polls are open from 6:00AM to 8:00PM.

  1.  Express Times:- ” Theise makes a more balanced argument to steer the country out of its crisis, and we endorse his candidacy. He is showing a willingness to engage the public and debate in a way Garrett did not in this campaign. While most incumbents claim this advantage, Garrett seems to be taking it to an extreme.”
  2.  Michael Fremer:-We deserve moderate, responsible representation in Washington. We haven’t had that since Marge Roukema retired.”
  3. The Records:- “Democratic challenger Tod Theise would bring a very different voice to Washington, one that deeply understands the district’s conservative base, but is more in line with the state’s social values.   Keeping a close eye on federal dollars and trying to rein in spending where necessary is a wise and good thing to do, but we do not believe a congressman who votes against nearly every bill simply on fiscal grounds best serves the people of the 5th District.”
  4.  Theise will never vote against the will of middle class.
  5.  Theise will fight to bring back 9.8 Billion back to New Jersey from Washington by introducing the law when elected for every state to get a minimum of 75 cents minimum back to every tax dollar we send to Washington.
  6. Theise believe in being our brother and sisters keepers in time of hardships. We rise and fall together as Americans.
  7. Theise is a uniter and not a divider.
  8.  Theise wants tax cuts for Middle class not only the 2% rich. He criticized the Bush Cuts  in contributing to the deficit that brought this country to its knees from 2000 -2008. They contributed to a lot of unemplyment because jobs were shipped abroad.
  9. Theise Supports investing in America and creating jobs for Americans.
  10.  Theise supports the Obama health care law. He believes it has good things in it but should be improved to remove mandates.
  11.   Theise  understands that, punishing people who try to follow the law is not a way todeal with Illegal immigration . The immigration system should improve and  for undocumented immigrants living here, he wants to revive the guest-worker program backed by Sen. John McCain and former President George W. Bush. For people brought to the United States when they were small children, he supports finding a way for them to apply for citizenship.
  12.  Theise does not support privatization of Social security. Seniors will lose their money if that happened.

 Why Should you retire the incumbent Garrett his  opponent ?

Garrett  voted against everything that benefits middle class Americans. 

  1. He voted against bills to help Hurricane Katrina victims ,
  2.  He Voted against  providing a Medicare prescription drug benefit plan,
  3.   Twice he voted against a bill to ensure medical care and compensation for Ground Zero workers. 
  4. He also has voted repeatedly against extending unemployment benefits.
  5.  He voted against Senior Financial Empowerment Act 2010 H R 3040
  6.  He voted against Consumer protection Act
  7.   He voted against Medical Relef Act H R 3421
  8. He voted Against Small Business Development  H R 1845
  9.  He voted against  Natural Risk Reduction Act 2009 H R 3820
  10.  He voted against Health Insurance Industry Fair Competition Act H R 4626
  11.  He voted against Energy jobs for Veterans ACT HR 4592
  12.  He voted against Plain Writing Act

The list is too long to list all the bills Garrett voted against. He is fine with collecting Government funded benefits and his big salary.

Did I also mention that he has made a career out of politics? In Warren county the worse thing is cronyism, We have people like Republican DiMao  Assembly man  collecting two checks from the government, funded by the tax payers. typical of the Republican hypocrisy.

They want small government and yet they are always lining up for government jobs. Republican Acetturo lost his election for Freeholder, an antic dealer by profession, now  has been appointed to head the motor vehicle department.. How is that shrinking the size of government? I thought Government is bad…

Coming back to Garrett, he should be sent packing. He does not represent the middle class but  foreign corporations and financial institutions who got the bailout  from the government , as evidenced below:

Tod Theise Calls Out Chris Christie on Schundler Firing
Congressional candidate says Schundler was scapegoated for Christie’s costly blunder

Washington, NJ – Democratic candidate for Congress Tod Theise today criticized Governor Chris Christie for firing Education Commissioner Bret Schundler over $400 million in lost education funding. Theise, a former Republican, made it clear that he expects Governor Christie to demonstrate leadership by taking responsibility for the epic blunder that robbed New Jersey schools of the massive allotment of federal funds.

“I knew Bret Schundler back when I was a Republican,” Theise stated. “Whether you agree with Bret or not, he has always been a man of impeccable character and has a heart for people rarely seen in politics. He is not someone who deserves to be thrown under the proverbial bus by a Governor incapable of taking accountability for his own inexcusable mistake.”

Harkening back to the days of Harry Truman, Theise said, “The old expression ‘the buck stops here’ comes to mind. I am disappointed that Governor Christie not only scapegoated Bret, but also tried to blame the Obama administration for his screw-up. A true leader accepts responsibility and seeks forgiveness from those he serves. “

“My thoughts and prayers are with Bret and his family as he has to deal with this regrettable display of cowardice by the Governor. I hope that conservatives, moderates and progressives rally around Bret as a matter of principle and hold Governor Christie accountable for his actions. This incident isn’t about partisanship. It is about right and wrong. And what the Governor did was clearly wrong.”

“Unfortunately, Chris Christie has a tendency to ignore opportunities to bring money back to New Jersey. When I attempted to discuss my Fair Share NJ tax plan with the Governor – a plan that will bring back $9.8 billion to New Jersey – the Governor refused to speak with me, telling me that he would talk to me only if I won the election. I guess I’ll just have to win to get an audience with Governor Christie.

Tod Theise is the Democratic candidate for Congress in New Jersey’s 5th District. Tod is a licensed New Jersey attorney and works in Manhattan as a Senior Litigation Analyst at a major international law firm. Tod contributes to our nation’s security by serving as a 1st Lieutenant in the New York Guard and is trained in various areas of emergency management and response. Tod lives in Washington Township (Warren County) with his wife and daughter and their five dogs.

Update: Health care passed with zero Republican vote. Wow.

Senate 56-43. House passed it by 219 to 212 initial and 220-207 second time. Congratulations!!!!!!

If I was a democrat Congressman, and voted No, I would be so embarrassed voting with the party that has crazy followers who are now sending threats to Democrats. Why can’t people respect the voting process. Violent is not the answer.

I blame  FOX news, Sarah Palin and GOP elected officials for playing  dangerous politics in feeding the American people with false information just for the sake of winning the elections. Instigating anger and supporting the party movement with wrong message.

GOP leaders together with the blue dogs should be ashamed of themselves. Really.

Sending  threats and filing law suits to block health care for all is a shame. It is so inhuman.

This is the most coward act I have ever seen in my entire life, using politics of fear and lies. I have no idea what play book the Republican Party is reading.

 Republicans in Democrats clothing  ( Blue Dogs) who voted against the Healthcare Bill will face reality come November elections.

 Voters will send you home on election day-Nov 2nd!”  they will send you back to the private sectors with  a “ballot”.

Democrats voters are civilized people , they believe in a peacefull election, not violent or stealing the ballot to win. If you think people will be afraid to go out and vote because of the GOP and tea party threat and violent tactics, wait and see. November elections are coming up.

Actually, the threats just made me sign up to volunteer for democrats. I am not afraid at all.

Americans sent you to Washington to represent them, not to represent the big Corporations. Shame on you !!!

It is hard for me to believe anything  that comes out of Christie’s mouth. I am trying to see good in him but when I list disadvantages and advantages , the disadvantages outweigh advantages for Chris Christie. Let me take you inside Chistie.

A look at Chris Christie

On Education:

“Christie believes that early childhood education is “babysitting,” and he would give insurance companies free rein to drop coverage for mammograms or minimum hospital stays. He even opposes banning guns that fire bullets that can tear through a cop’s bullet-proof vest.”

On health Care and women issues

New Jersey race for Governor is getting nasty, with both candidates attacking each other. Like I said before, Chris Christie is running on blank ideas. It is scary to even think of him becoming the governor in New Jersey. Here is one of the examples that makes me doubt Candidate Christie. When I compare notes, I think Christie is a fraud. If this guy wins the race, mark my word.   New Jersey residents will live  to regret.

 Christie is airing the AD claiming Corzine is lying. Christie will never deny women to get health care and mammograms for women.

See Christie’s AD.  Click the link below

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wN1acLW0Xmk

When I saw this AD last night I can admit, I felt bad for Christie. I thought the Corzine Campaign are making up stuff. So I decided to search for truth.

As I am surfing the net, I came across this youtube video.

Christie at a Town Hall Meeting dismissing a cancer survivor. Watch and make your own judgement.

“Recently, a New Jersey cancer survivor tried to ask Chris Christie about his plan to allow insurance companies to drop coverage for critical procedures like mammograms.”

His response?  He told her the cancer she got in her 20’s was “an exception.

Christie dismissed the question. like someone said, “There’s so much you don’t know about Christie”

Christie’s Driving record

Corzine came up with this AD, so I did my own research to see if this claim was true.

Here are my findings:

According to the records provided by the state Motor Vehicle Commission on August 28 2009 to the daily record newpaper, Christie had more than 13 tickets traffic Violations. This happened between 1985 and 2009. Christie was found guilty. The tickets included seven for speeding.

“MVC also issued traffic  records on Gov Jon Corzine. Unlike his opponent, Gov Corzine only had 2 tickets for speeding and a third for not wearing a sit belt in 2007 following a near fatal crash in which he was riding in the front passenger seat.”

“Christie on the other hand has been an habitual offender and a complete menace to society on highways of New jersey.” States the paper.

Here is a report from the New Jersey Motor Vehicles

After all this ,  Only a closed minded person can’t see what is wrong with Chris Christie. He is a fraud and do not qualify to be a Governor. This is disgusting .

Corruptions

Do you think Christie will bring change to New Jersey?

New Jersey wake up, before you are sorry.

Update:

The Qunnipiac poll out this morning has the race narrowing down to just 4 points, and it shows that the more people learn about Chris Christie’s extreme views on issue after issue, the more they believe that he is completely wrong for New Jersey.
