sounds about right for all this weeks scandals

i try not to be too political,  but really i bust my butt to teach my children and my Sailors how to be personally accountable and then our government makes promises, overextends the peoples treasury, and has yet to take personal responsibility for any missteps

A.Benghazi

B. 13 billion unaccounted for in bailout funds

C. Universal healthcare and its failure to launch or truly be the affordable option as promised

D. multiple personal civil liberty witch hunts “for the safety of the people”

E. The use of diminishing entitlement programs as bait to ensure the uninformed blindly cast their vote.

Fix it now, stand in front of Wal-mart (Target doesn’t like it when you stand in front of them) have people sign the petition, and recall your Senators and Congressman, Colorado did it over the loss of one Company, 1 civil right infringement, and the loss of 1750 jobs, what did the shut down cost us as a people?

I can’t say it any better

If you aren’t preaching this message to your children, co-workers and self, you are selling yourself and your possibilities short, don’t teach your children to be ordinary, let them know they are winners, and winners never quit, or place blame, they shoulder up and keep moving forward.

 

Sense of entitlement

‘Haha. I wouldn’t work for that,” Lieutenant Colonel Bighead tells me.

“It’s a fair salary,” I respond. “Everyone is cutting their budgets now.”

“I’m worth more. Find something better,” he says hanging up the phone.

This is a real conversation. I’m a recruiter that specializes in placing veterans in tech jobs and management positions and I had this exact talk recently. I used to make fun of the Occupy Wall Street kids who squatted on public parks and made unreasonable and oftentimes laughable demands for the world to take care of them like they needed an extra large teet to suckle off of. But now I was getting pretty much the same attitude from a 20-year military veteran with an overblown sense of self-worth.

I’m a huge champion of that oh-so-core capitalist value: a free market economy. And I believe everyone should aspire to capture their market value and then some. If you discovered Einsteinium and you’re worth a bazillion kajillion dollars a year then by God demand it. But here’s what most people don’t realize…the market dictates a person’s value, NOT the individual and Lieutenant Colonel Bighead doesn’t know what I do-that the market is turning down sharply right now so the days of demanding $150K to be a Program Manager in DC are over. Some people can still get that salary, but very few and certainly not ones coming straight off of active duty.

Military retirees are in dire straits in 2013. The recent government budget cuts have forced every company in this industry to cut corners, slash budgets, and do away with the free M&M supply in the break room (the horror!). I have a friend who recently retired from the Air Force after a VERY distinguished career as a Nuclear Missileer. Right now he’s in training to be a postal carrier because there are no opportunities for him outside of uniform. No joke.

So the attitude of “I’m worth more” needs to be checked at the door.

And now…the rest of the story.

owesIn a strange way I’m just as guilty as LTC Bighead. When he copped an attitude with me, the first thing I thought was, “you disrespectful fucko.” I didn’t like the way this guy talked to me. He’s easily 4 years my junior and in uniform I would have jacked him up until he cried. In reality he probably wouldn’t have talked to me that way in the first place because he would have been more professional (I hope).

But that’s the exact same narcissistic character flaw that I was pissed about in the first place-that somehow I’m owed something for my service. For a minute I felt like this guy should show some respect for my time in uniform when I realized a blinding truth: no one gives a shit about your service when you take the uniform off…and shouldn’t. Your rank, your badges, your cool beret doesn’t continue into civilian life. It’s over and overnight you go from Joe Cool to Joe Bag-O-Donuts when it is. No has to give you respect or recognize your authority. It’s just like starting over, so once again…check your attitude at the door.

When the Occupy Wall Street movement was going on everyone (including me) kept telling those kids with an overblown sense of entitlement to Ranger Up and get over it. That’s good advice no matter how old you are.

 

Its not who or what they say that is the truth

media

Don’t believe that the media is your friend any more than a bank is there to help you save money or a government is here to help you.

Banks are designed to make money not give it away, that’s why their interest rate on your money, is better than yours.

The media is an advertisement splashed with sensationalism to keep you interested, advertisers drive content, Ask Amber Lyon.

Governments don’t exist to do you good, nor do they have your interests in mind, they exist to support their advertisers agenda, its your job to tell them through OUR voice what is right and wrong for OUR country.
