~Looking back…2009~

Oh, what a year 2009 turned out to be. The first African-American (not 100% however) was elected to the White House by an astonishing number of votes. His claims of hope and change really didn’t materialize the way that he had promised. But, that is something we’ve become accustomed too! Sen. Joe Wilson, described it best with his timely, “you lie” comment! This is now, as you know, the end of the year of 2009 and you would think that by this time that race would no longer be an issue, apparently it isn’t the case. Many voted for this man based on the color of his skin and not by the character within. After being inaugurated on Jan. 20th, he soon was nominated for the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize, yet what had he accomplished in such a short time. Then comes February and we had the stimulus’ that was supposed to help a flailing economy but yet we’ve only seen record unemployment that nearly reaches the time of the great depression. With many asking where are the jobs? We have seen our government take over private businesses, introduce cap and trade, cash for clunkers and now the health-care reform that so many of the people reject but yet the democratic congress fails to listen too. Yes, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi bantered together to help push Obama’s agenda down our throats. Out of this a new movement was born. Many on the left have mocked and made derogatory comments about, yes, I am speaking of the Tea Party Movement. Born on Twitter and Facebook we gathered in cities across this land to speak out against the tyranny that we see coming our way. We attended Town-hall meetings and marched on DC, yes, there was over 2 million people there that day and I had the pleasure of being amongst the crowd and raising my voice with patriots from every corner of this great nation. Fellow blogger and best friend Smalltalkwitht joined me in DC and together made our impact on this history making event. We have witnessed a president who apologized and bow before foreign leaders. We’ve heard the pleas of Generals that he placed under his command for more troops to help our military who are fighting to save the freedoms and liberties so many in this country take for granted. Yet it took him over three months to make a decision. We’ve witness strife and killing in the streets of Iran with but a simple slap on the wrist of this administration. They are merely fighting for their God given right to freedom and the leader of the greatest nation in the world does nothing, but make yet another televised statement and once again read from the now infamous “Teleprompter.” We have witnessed N.Korea taunt us with long-range missiles but to no avail, this administration is too worried about destroying the very foundation of our country and stomping on the Constitution that our forefather’s shed their blood to make our government one of the people and by the people. Yet, this administration defiles the very notion and promptly escorts socialism where it is not wanted. Obama continues to blame former president George Bush for everything without being able to own up after a year in office and take responsibility for the government he is trying to change. Obama should take lessons from GWB and learn how he kept us safe from the terrorist attacks but no, we are constantly watching over our shoulders expecting the worst as on Christmas Day another attempt to kill Americans was thwarted. The Nigerian who tried to blow up the plane had been identified by his own father as one to watch due to his recent activities, but yet he slipped through and was able to board a plane to carry out his dreadful deed. He claims that there are more to come and yet this president waited days before addressing the nation and then was only condescending with his remarks. So as we approach 2010, be vigilant when traveling, take time to become involved. Be better informed as to what the government has in store for you and for me and don’t hesitate to speak out, for that is one right they haven’t taken yet. We have a voice and we together can make a difference. Vote, that is your voice….regardless of political affiliation we are still Americans, don’t let the leftist progressive’s win and destroy our very foundation. Take heed from those who fought in the first American Revolution, for we very well may be headed for the second one if the elected officials don’t start to listen to the will of the people. I wish you all a great new year, we have a lot to face going in to it. Lets make 2010 the year of REAL CHANGE for America!

  2. Bravo! Bravo! Bravo!
    A Patriotic Nurse Indeed!

  3. I don’t think one of my days in 2009 would have been complete w/o reading one of your “tweets”. I am so glad we’ve crossed paths. Looking forward to 2010 together.

    • Oh how I have enjoyed our tweeting experience also, the pleasure is all mine! I appreciate all the support you’ve shown to me via tweeting and my blog! I pray that we make can a huge impact next year and see the “Change” go the “Right” way instead of the direction we are currently on! To borrow from “the one”…YES WE CAN..and this time it will be for the betterment of our country! Kudos to you Kevin!

  4. From one nurse to another, bravo. Your blog represents the feelings of many afraid to speak out but more and more are waking up.

    I was in DC on 9/12 too and the energy of the crowd was inspiring. Here’s to an even more energized and productive 2010.

    • Yes, I agree, more are waking up! Even the ones that fell for the promises put forth during the campaign. It made me cringe when he would stand with those that represent the ANA and claim that so many of the nurses stood with him on this health-care reform, when that truly wasn’t the case. Those at the ANA have long been away from the acute care of patient care and merely have agenda that truly isn’t that of many of the nurses I have come in contact with both on my job and those I met in DC! Appreciate you taking the time to comment! Happy New Year!

  5. The information presented is top notch. I’ve been doing some research on the topic and this post answered several questions. Check out my Valentines Day Lingerie Website if you got time – http://tinyurl.com/ycyjopf
