Hello Good Folks!
Whether you agree or not agree with the American Jobs Act, President Obama came with it last night. He presented a solid plan, but he also let Congress know that he’s not playing nice anymore. When you are elected President, you have at least four years to work your plan. And President Obama has accomplished a lot that he isn’t given credit or is flat-out ignored. Besides, if anyone watched the GOP debates, I think we need to be concerned about their plan for Americans. Especially when you have a candidate like Rick Perry who calls social security a “Ponzi scheme” and proudly defends the execution of 234 people in Texas, more than any other Governor in modern times. I guess they haven’t learned the lesson about what happens when we use divise language and untruths to win at all costs. I don’t believe in bully politics, but I do believe in being assertive. And I believe President Obama finally got the memo.
And as a group of my friends watched President Obama finish his speech, we all wished Obama could have dropped the mic Randy Watson style.
Earthquakes, hurricanes, now floods….it’s coming to an end. Summer that is. So this weekend, the outdoor festivals are winding up. Check out the Virgin Music Festival is at the Merriweather Post Pavillion on Saturday. And Bilal will be at the Birchmere on Sunday. And on Sunday, check out the National Triathlon benefiting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Enjoy your weekend. And be safe out there as we commemorate 9-11.
Peace and blessings, ThatKellieGirl
