It's Still Divine Providence in Motion Thing

Dear America,

there is much to get to.

for me, just G, trying to keep track of it all within this humble day in the life of America, it suddenly feels overwhelming.  there is just so much to say, so much misunderstood, so much that is just plain wrong.

And yet, my heart is filled with such faith and pure joy!

Let me begin by making a big deal of something that occurred last night at the tail end, if you closed your eyes, you may have missed it.   Especially considering how the majority of the last 24 hours has been drama filled -- watching the theatrics on the floor of the DNC having the audacity to argue with the Almighty -- perhaps some of you already know where I'm going with this.....

....the thing is, GOD had the last word.

In the end, the entire arena prayed together; in the end, everyone closed their eyes and bowed their head to the Holy Spirit; the Thing Itself -- parted the aisles and filled the 20,000 seat airspace to capacity.  Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York, brought the convention to a close -- just as he had done for the RNC -- and prayed for, and with, America.

He not only gave a benediction complete with all of the proper embellishments in sincerity and grace -- he opened up the podium to the Heavens and said take me.   And in the still of the night, Dolan redirected the nation and corrected our folly upon our knees.

Oh yes he did.

And yet, It was not finished; Dolan made no mistake and left no Stone unturned; and after speaking on behalf of the protection of Life and restoring our faith and values in the things that truly matter -- he went further, stipulating in agreement with God and country, that we must CHOOSE wisely this November, even mentioning the Romney/Ryan ticket by name.  All while wrapping it up tightly declaring that we truly are ONE Nation UNDER GOD, indivisible...and In GOD we trust. we say Amen!

So --  like I said -- God always gets the last word.   My coffee cup is overflowing.

As far as the rest of the night.  Reviews are widely mixed.

My favorite moment:  saying the Pledge of Allegiance along with the Fmr. Congresswoman Gabby Giffords on stage leading us in every word.   What a testament to her strength and courage and grace.  so beautiful.

John Kerry's entire speech was a propagandized hot mess.  Ridiculous that he can even speak on behalf of the troops at all -- it takes something called credibility to do that and he's got none in that department.  But let's not dwell.   His big line of the night was this one: "Ask Osama Bin Laden if he's better off now than four years ago."   Wouldn't the answer to that simply be, um, No. Um... he's dead???; oh, right, you were lauding the Commander-in-Chief who got him [and I would assume counting in, what, the seventy virgins waiting for him, yes the afterlife is good].

@john kerry -- next Secretary of State hopeful --  if America is so exceptional as you claim this administration has proclaimed to believe from the start...why the apology tour?  Why was THAT the first task on the president's Official Foreign Policy Fixer Upper To-Do List [besides returning the Churchill bust]?  And regarding things more closer to home -- you made crafty insinuations that Romney would be the Outsourcer-in-Chief -- perhaps taking a closer look at the devil in the details is in order for you.  Check out GM having China build our Caddy's, GE having China make our freaky little light bulbs, and speaking of energy -- what about the green energy companies given stimulus money outside the United States, and off-shore drilling investments in Brazil, and shall I go on?    [The argument itself shows your naiveté of the realities of the world today --  investment banker capitalists GET THIS, and moreover, respect this very aspect of how the business of business building has changed.]

AND then there's Joe...Mr. "OBL is Dead and GM is Alive."

Um Joe, you honestly going to stand there and lead America to believe that The Right bets against America?  Given it's the party now famous for the rise of the Tea Party -- the original working class?   The Tea and the GOP personify middle America in every way.  Your speech was offensive, sophomoric, and stupid.  Oh sure, you did a great job; you fired up the base, which was your only mission last night.  And good luck with that.  Can't wait for you to debate Paul.

um, and that's all I'm gonna say on Joe
 if you say it like Forrest Gump it's more fun.

There was a troubling refrain that kept popping up throughout the evening which, personally, made me stop and wonder, just what happened to us?   I didn't realize that The Left believes that they have total ownership now of the American values, separating from the whole, the middle American and poor working class values.

From the speeches, to the formal DNC videos,  the mantra was repeated time and time again... as if the American value of hard work meets opportunity belongs to them -- as if it's their cornerstone, hands off my mortar, back off my block.  Saying with explicit conviction and 100% ownership, 'THEY BELIEVE a JOB is more than a paycheck -- that it stands for dignity, a place in community, allowing us to stand tall and care for our children and family -- to participate in the great, or is it grand, bargain.'  Saying it in such a way as to convey that the other side simply does not.

I am just so sick of the constant red thread being spoon-fed to the American people -- republicans don't care and have not a compassionate bone in their bodies and that all WE -- the People of the GOP -- DO is bet against America.  It's just getting so old.  SO OLD.   

And speaking of which, here's Obama:

"if you believe 
in a country where everyone gets a fair shot, 
and everyone does their fair share, 
and everyone plays by the same rules, 
then I need you to vote this November."

YES!  I believe in this AMERICA!  Who doesn't, Mr. President?  Let's go there and talk about everyone who doesn't play by the same rules; and talk about everyone who doesn't do their fair share. [full transcript]

And back to Joe for a second, when he said something like this, 'they're not looking for a handout, they're just looking for a shot.'

Hello, Joe!  We're there already.  We all get a shot -- whether from a birth into poverty or wealth -- the entire spectrum of possibility of outcomes is still the same:   there are no guarantees and anything is truly possible.  THIS America, has seen the very poor rise up to be rich, and sometimes heroes; THIS America has seen the silver spoon babies grow up to lose it all.


AND I do believe -- speaking for one, as one -- that we ALL SHARE the same values; I believe we are, as a whole, hardworking, compassionate, charitable, giving, loving, optimistic Americans who want to do what is right for ourselves and our children..  THAT IS WHO WE ARE, Mr. President, all of us.

As THE sitting president, how dare you not include me!

How dare you speak only to your base.

Earth to the Candidate-in-Chief, you may not like or agree with this aspect of the presidency, but you stand for all of us.  And in-between running for re-election, your chief task and priority is to lead an entire nation, half of which do not agree with your ideology, policy, or politics.

How dare you speak only to your base.
Where is your courage to stand for all Americans at the same time?

After the Left made a point of saying that Romney didn't say enough last week -- that there were no specifics -- at least he spoke to all Americans as one; and how in the world can The Left justify the remarks of their sitting president struggling to get re-elected when all he can do is double-down on promises made four years ago?

IF Romney didn't say enough -- Obama didn't say anything new.

Something old, something blue, but in the end, nothing new.

This speech was nothing more than a composite of everything he has said thus far [kinda like "Julia" -- or how Obama blended all of his old girlfriends into one], complete with broken promises and cutting rhetoric and all.  He sounded worn out until the last five minutes; and more than that, appeared almost annoyed that he had to convince his followers of a second chance at all.   [Wonder if Bob Woodward's new book, The Price of Politics, had anything to do with it?  ouch.  of course it did.]

"You know what? That’s not who we are. That’s not what this country’s about. As Americans, we believe we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights, rights that no man or government can take away. We insist on personal responsibility, and we celebrate individual initiative. We’re not entitled to success. We have to earn it. We honor the strive-rs, the dreamers, the risk- takers, the entrepreneurs who have always been the driving force behind our free enterprise system, the greatest engine of growth and prosperity the world has ever known."

exactly. and can I get an amen.  Can you even believe he said aloud "we are endowed by our Creator!"  In past remarks he usually omits that phrase.

You should have stopped right there, Mr. President.  But, you didn't, did ya?

"But we also believe in something called citizenship"

You're right, we do. There is that.  AND it has nothing to do with community organizing or social justice.  What was that?  Code?   Boy, you are a skilled speaker.

He keeps going on for quite some time citing examples used before...and gets to this:

"....As citizens, 
we understand that America 
is not about what can be done for us. 
It’s about what can be done by us, 
through the hard and frustrating 
but necessary work of self-government. 
That’s what we believe."

um NO you don't; you DO NOT believe in "the hard and frustrating but necessary work of self-government."  Seriously?  That is exactly why within these United States the two sides are fundamentally opposed to one another.

Looking back on a week destined to be all about moving forward, I'm confused as to why the democrats felt the need to start over, as if we all haven't met.   Having Michelle tell their love story and family beginnings shaped by "poverty"; while Billyboy got up there and basically claimed that what happened in the last four years didn't really happen the way we think it happened -- re-writing Barack's history, his history, and taking the opportunity to suspend reality for as long as he could get away with it.

Adding into the mix a couple of recent polished admissions of the president: the first, being that he considers his grade on the economy "incomplete"; and second, having the audacity to say his biggest mistake is having  not told the story better to the American people.  

For the Left, it's all about conveying a narrative to control Americans from start to finish -- wedging between rich and poor, opportunists and the disenfranchised, the haves and have-nots, blue collar against white, Americans divided by demographic, race, wealth, religion, sexual orientation.

Obama is in this position, pleading for a second chance, because he clearly believes he hasn't told the story better.  ...are you kidding me?

Alec Baldwin made a shocking statement last week.  He tweeted,

"if Obama was white, he'd be up 17 points." 

Sorry, Alec.  If Obama was white, if he wasn't already impeached for acting by dictate through Executive Order and abuse of power, he would have been replaced by Hillary and never even given a second chance.

But that's what America is all about --  second chances, third chances, how ever many times it takes to succeed furnished through the virtues of good self-government.

And may the best man, or woman, win, always.  The best being in all things under heaven, of course.  Thankfully, we can conclude, America is still Divine Providence in motion.

So, folks, let's keep moving.
The DNC is finally over and clearly, there is nothing to see here.
Let's just get on with the debates and be done with it.

Make it a Good Day, G

Roger Hedgecock, San Diego's past mayor turned conservative talk-radio host, came home from the DNC having been denied.  Freedom of speech and tolerance of the other side, simply non-existent.  The DNC projected a stern warning to all delegates and representatives not to speak with any conservative radio/tv guy/gal during the entire convention.  What are they afraid of?
