Sequestration normally would equal political suicide if voted on

News Flash: Due to the fact that all three policical parties agree that there must be some cuts to the government it has been decided that not voting on budget cuts saves them from political suicide.

This way all three parties can hem and ha, bicker and complain and clamour for News at 5 headlines telling the voters they are working feverishly and frantically to avoid the massive cuts due to hit March 1.

Who is the fall guy that the American public will blame for the Sequester? Answer: Someone by the name of Bowles – Simpson Bill. Lets face it… Mr. Bill is not an elected politician and is not up for re-election. Unless there is a person and a face to blame the American public can not and will not blame a face or one political party for the entire Sequestration.

On March 1 the cuts will take place, the elected politicians will all moan and grown, and the economy will take one more step toward the “New Normal” for the United States economy.

All the politicians will swear they did their best to avoid the Sequester, while knowing full well that it was needed to trip the deficit. The public will moan and grown for 48 hours and once again have something to complain about regarding the economy.

Finally, the mainstream media will have many evenings of stories showing all the unhappy folks that will be impacted l first hand the ramifications of Mr. Bills bill.

Unemployed, Under-educated, Unloved adults often ignored

I am proud to say that I am a high school teacher in an inner city, Rockford Illinois. Recently I asked my students their explanation of gun violence and/or violence in our community.

The results were surprising and exasperating at the same time.

1. Under-educated adults due to lack of parental guidance and support
2. Over 20, incapable of attending and graduating tech school or college due to family responsibilties
3. Unloved young people seeking family seek out gang families

The way I see it is that “we” the United States of America lack any program or job/education/training program for young adults and adults alike that:

1. Have a GED
2. No GED but would like a realistic reason to pursue GED
3. Unemployed Tech School, Junior College, or University that needs job specific education

My personal opinion: “We” need a viable for-profit business operation that attempts to engage the disengaged population of young adults and adults that have been cast off as a lost population.

I have a plan that does this and God willing I will at some point get the ear of someone that can/will make it happen.
