ARE COMPANIES SHOOTING THEMSELVES IN THE FOOT?


INVESTING IN PEOPLE, NOT UTOPIA

Companies today seem to be wanting the world when they hire people; young millennial, senior level workers. They look for that utopian candidate, already trained with numerous years of experience. Companies no longer want to mold employees into their ideal candidate. Internal training programs have pretty much died. While, I understand they want people who can hit the ground running and can get up to speed in a short period of time, are they shooting themselves by not considering someone who has the knowledge, capability and older, but not necessarily have actual work experience in a work environment?

JobAd Companies might advertise a “junior” position, but then demand intermediate or senior level knowledge. Stop saying 0-3 years and then dismiss the 0 to 2 years of experience in that criteria. Frankly, companies don’t know what they want. Companies advertise their utopian wish list, in hopes they will find someone with all their wishes and dismiss the people who have 3 of the no longer find real entry-level or junior openings. So if a person in the IT arena with over 20 years IT experience in various technologies can’t even get in at the entry-level or junior level, how in the hell do you ever expect them to get to the intermediate or senior level? Frankly, I’m thinking my Master’s in Computer and Information Systems was a waste of time and money. All the thousands of dollars investing in books and/or software to learn the new “emerging” technology has all been a waste. Continue reading

Mozilla: Inequality Opportunity Employer


Mozilla, makers of Firefox browser, has purposely ousted their CEO because he contributed to CA Proposition 8 in 2008. For those who can’t remember Proposition 8 made gay marriage illegal in California. Remember Barack Obama also was opposed to gay marriage in 2008. Proposition 8 passed with overwhelming numbers by the voters of California. However, a judge felt the peoples vote doesn’t count and declared it was unconstitutional. Frankly, where does it say that “marriage” is a right in the Constitution? In addition, sexual preference protection is not in the Constitution.

Wounded Knee – Lies still prevail


I have always had a kindred spirit with Native Americans, not because I am Native American, but because I think America has done them a great disservice. How generous of our government to give land called “Reservations” to the Native Americans that they roamed way before us “Americans” came to this nation. In addition, they were required to remain on the reservation as a condition of getting this land and treaties signed. Treaties our government has broken many times before. So much for free people right and the ability to live where you wish. Like anything, the government provides they create poor living conditions.

While, I recognize some violence over the years have come from various bands of Native Americans too, the majority has come from the failings of our own government. Many times their acts of violence were due to our government’s actions or inactions. No matter who was right or wrong, actions of one group can cause great harm. One of these is the story of Wounded Knee. It is time for the true story to overshadow the lies by our government, strip the medals from the guilty, and right the wrong in our history forever.

I just finished reading the story that Glenn Beck wrote in regards to the Battle of Wounded Knees and the Medal of Honor our governments bestowed upon some the soldiers of that day. On December 29, 1890, the actions of Colonel James W. Forsyth were at the least irresponsible, criminal, and executed with utter contempt for the Sioux.

To make a long story short, the Colonel order the confiscation arms from the Sioux. However, the Sioux not trusting the government, they held back some weapons and rightly so. However, Big Foot had his people comply. The guns heaped into a pile the Colonel ordered tents and other belongs searched. This is understandable; as you want to make sure, they do not attack you on their way back to the “Reservation”. Weapons found, he then ordered the search of all the Sioux and some came forward. They ordered the search of the “young warriors” for additional weapons. This is where one deaf warrior showed his arm and fired in the air. Upon that action, the Colonel ordered the soldiers to commence firing. This was a massacre at Wounded Knee and Colonel Forsyth started it all. The officers, who testified, lied about what happened to cover up their brutal murder of these Sioux people, with the exception of two officers, Major Samuel Whitside and General Nelson Miles. They tried to tell the truth, but overruled by the U.S. Army. The soldiers at Wounded Knee not only shot the men, but women and children. What kind of man shoots down women and children in cold blood? To make matters worse Forsyth and other soldiers received the Medal of Honor “for their bravery and resolute actions”.

In addition, the way Colonel Forsyth arranged his soldiers around the camp; sources believed that the majority of the fallen soldiers were from other soldiers. Remember, the majority of the Sioux were unarmed and sitting ducks.

To this day, one man, Calvin Spotted Elk is fighting to get these medals revoked and the real story corrected. Calvin’s great grandfather, Chief Spotted Elk, aka “Big Foot” massacred that day by Colonel Forsyth or his soldiers. Calvin’s appeals and letter to Barack Obama, no surprise, not answered. Support https://www.facebook.com/honorwoundedknee

We need to help Calvin Spotted Elk to right this wrong and remove the medals from the murders that day. Tweet, write or email the Obama administration to right this wrong and bring shame to the guilty. We also, should note that the Sioux not offered a proper burial of the slaughtered according to Sioux customs. This is another slap in the face to these great people.

In addition, the land, Wounded Knee, where the massacre occurred up for sale in 2013. To date no tribes have come forward to purchase this land and from what I read the deadline to do so passed. The land priced at 3.9 million, which may be overpriced. To date, I do not know if the land sold at auction yet. Read the info posted on the Facebook link above.

This website will provide images from that tragic day in South Dakota. http://history.denverlibrary.org/blog/content/wounded-knee.

Liberals Claim of “White Privilege”


If you are a frequent visitor to Twitter or Twitchy.com or the MSM media sites and read post from Liberal Progressives’ you are bound to hear the term “white privilege”. What is “white privilege?” Progressives invented this term to bestow to Republicans, Conservatives or Independents for being born white. Notice they are never included in this terminology. I can certainly tell you I did not grow up in privilege and I will not apologize for being born white. That is what Progressives want you to feel. I will not and cannot apologize for something I had no control over. I am guilty of nothing, but trying to love humankind.

Wikipedia defines “white privilege” as this:

White privilege (or white skin privilege) refers to the set of societal privileges that white people benefit from beyond those commonly experienced by people of color in the same social, political, or economic spaces (nation, community, workplace, income, etc.)

IRS Scandal and Senator Michael Bennet


Most everyone has heard of the IRS Scandal created and admitted by the IRS on a Friday afternoon. Why would they release this info late on a Friday? When the Obama White House releases something on a Friday they hope it gets little attention and the media will ignore it. It is their way to release potentially damaging information or information they want to keep under the radar getting little air time. Obama is notorious for releasing his Executive Orders on Fridays.

However, when the IRS admits something Tea Party and other conservatives groups have been saying all along, it isn’t going to pass the attention of Republicans or Conservatives. You also probably wondering why now, why would they admit such a thing? Well those complaints have not gone unheeded. Many in Congress began to investigate. After an IG report was due for release which implicated “a few rogue” agents in the Cincinnati IRS office for purposely targeting Conservative/Republican, Christian, Pro-Life, Tea Party, and Jewish groups on their 501 c3 or 4 applications, the IRS had to come clean. Over 500 groups targeted with some who received extra special attention from the IRS; asking illegal questions, unnecessary questions, and delaying their application. Some have waited up to three years since they first filed. Some still do not have their approval. Continue reading

MEDIA BLACKOUT ON BABY KILLER TRIAL


On March 18, Kermit Gosnell’s trial began. The 72 year old “doctor” ended up killing a woman during a botched abortion, which brought to light the horrors of his practice.

In the Grand Jury document obtained from the web the report indicates Gosnell “regularly and illegally delivered live, viable, babies in the third trimester of pregnancy – and then murdered these newborns by severing their spinal cords with scissors.

The report goes on to say that Gosnell “overdosed his patients with dangerous drugs, spread venereal disease among them with infected instruments, perforated their wombs and bowels — and on at least two occasions caused their deaths.”

In the description of the clinic the Grand Jury report said “the clinic reeked of animal urine, courtesy of the cats that were allowed to roam and defecate freely.”

This man conducted an illegal abortion business even when abortion, the legal killing of unborn babies, is legal based on Roe vs. Wade.

Here is what he or his staff did to babies born alive:

  1. Sticking scissors into the back of the baby’s neck and cutting the spinal cord.
  2. Delivered 7-1/2 month old, severed his spine, and put the body in a plastic shoebox for disposal.
  3. Baby boy whose body found frozen in a one-gallon spring-water bottle and was about 28 weeks at his death.
  4. Another baby was moving and breathing at least 20 minutes before the assistant came in and cut the spinal cord.

Democrats Plan To Confiscate Guns in NY


New York Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin took a grand leap and posted the plans of NY legislatures to actually confiscate guns from law abiding citizens. The 2nd Amendment does not restrict the type of arms anyone can own., We can at least agree that no one needs a bazooka, a fully automatic weapon, or a tank to protect their property, hunt with, or protect from tyranny. We can also agree that STATE background checks and arms training conducted. The goal is to get the guns out of the hands of the people who use them to kill people.

However, it seems the government has no problem when drug cartels or criminals own these weapons. If they truly wanted to curb gun violence they would crack down on felons with guns. This would jeopardize police funding. Less violence from criminals = less police on the job, a threat to Unions.

You all do know that Governor Cuomo’s during his rush to pass his legislation, did not include an exemption for Police in NY. His eagerness and lust for gun control just jeopardize every NY citizen. Love those logical Democrats.

When we have government officials try to circumvent the Constitution because they think they know what is good for their citizens, we have the makings of a Marxist. Yes, you heard me. The first thing Hitler, Mao, Stalin and all the other dictators did was to confiscate the guns from law abiding citizens. Once that occurred, each of these Marxists slaughtered millions of people. Citizens had no way to defend themselves from tyranny.

The Founding Fathers placed this into our Constitution to secure the new American citizens from the tyranny of a British King. Everything they fought for during the American Revolution was for freedom. My forefathers fought in this war. You may not agree with them, but most of us do. The 2nd Amendment indicates that “a well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state“. In colonial times the militia was ordinary citizens. When it was necessary citizens formed the militia, a militia that needs arms. This comes to the second part of the amendment “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed“. Thus no laws to restrict the right to own a gun and the ammunition that goes in that gun, that is a given.

During colonial times the guns were not as sophisticated as they are today. Many were muskets or pistols. I am pretty sure our Founding Fathers foresaw that Arms would improve and described them generically for that very reason.

Just because something did not exist at the time of the Constitution does not make it null and void. Democrats argue that AR-15 or any other assault weapons didn’t exist at writing of the Constitution, thus not protected. Well okay the Internet isn’t protected either under that premise. Free speech on the Internet would not exist. Cable News did not exist either, thus not protected. Anything that did not exist at the writing of the Constitution would become null and void under the Democrats argument. We are in modern times; the Constitution does not change at the whims of any government.

If we cannot uphold the Constitution as written, we have just turned a Republic into a dictatorship. We will have the same President as long as Venezuela has had Hugo Chavez and Cuba has had Castro. Last I checked Cubans made rafts to escape Cuba’s dictator and oppressive government. Yet many Democrats seem okay with this type of government, well of course, they envision they will be in charge.

Gun control has never worked for the simple reason it goes after the law abiding citizens and not the felons or mentally ill patients that should never own, much less be around guns. The previous ban on “assault weapons” never worked. The criminals still had the guns. If you talk to a Democrat you get the impression they think criminals follow gun laws, but their ultimate goal is to remove the obstacle of guns from the citizens and forcing their government onto the people. They cannot effectively execute their agenda if the citizens are armed. Think about this. They don’t care about your protection; they only care about keeping power and dictating to the American people how they should live in their fantasy world. Armed citizens will fight back if their freedom is at stake. Most citizens do not want to take up arms against our government, but our current government wants to create a revolution with its citizens. Obama and his administrations follow Saul Alinsky’s “Rule for Radicals”; they are all about Revolution. Read up on Agenda 21 by the U.N. I wrote an article on this subject also.

Yeah, I know crazy talk, but mark my words one day you will be saying, “Oh my, she was spot on”.

Now let’s get to Colorado. Governor Higgenlooper, a Democrat might have similar plans as Governor Cuomo of New York. He has already hinted at making sweeping changes similar to Governor Cuomo. He has talked about removing Concealed Carry permits. I for one love the idea that my community college where I teach allows Concealed Carry. I realize I am not 100% protected, but I have a better chance of not running into a gunman than if it were a “gun free zone”. Nothing waves “we are sitting ducks” like a place who announces we are a “gun free zone”. We also have armed police. We now have two gun ranges nearby. Yeah, my college is less likely to be a target.

So Governor Higgenlooper, I will put you on notice sir. If you do anything to infringe on the 2nd Amendment, I will do everything in my power to ensure your reelection fails or I may even start a petition for your recall. I have already contacted by Republican Congressman about my wishes to protect the 2nd Amendment in the state of Colorado.

When you pass unconstitutional laws because you think you know what is best for people, you are committing the greatest sin of all: Treason. It also makes you arrogant and a narcissist. I say to you, “Who the hell do you think you are”? My safety and the right to protect myself trump your fantasy world.
