UNITED WE STAND
Today is a big day for the United States of America and for this one day we can be selfish and focus on ourselves as a nation. Hundreds of thousands have made their way to Washington, D.C. to be eye witnesses of this second inauguration of President Barack Hussein Obama, the 44th president of the United States.
Whether you are among the 52 percent who voted for him or you are among the 48 percent who did not- today we come together as Americans as he is indeed the President of these United States. Today’s inauguration is even more significant because it is the birthday of Martin Luther King (MLK). Had Martin Luther King been alive today he would have said, we all Americans , rich or poor; red or yellow, black or white. We are all
God’s children and therefore we count. Congratulations to President Barack Obama.
Can We Afford A Shutdown of the US Government
How is America really doing on the economic front? Are the people in Washington really going to let the givernment shut down? With thee days to go before America defaults on its debts, it is really an interesting situation that the country is in. People are punished, ridiculed, and are forced into bankruptcy when they can’t pay their bills, but when the government can’t pay theirs, they try to raise their debt ceiling.
Big businesses and government run into overspending problems and they are given options to work it out, but let you or I be late with our phone payment and the same big company is ready to turn off our service. Well, we wait with baited breaths to see what will happen on Tuesday. My guess is that the Democrats and Republicans in Washington will get the deal done by Monday. What do you think?
