A Rough Climb

Posted: September 3, 2014 in Uncategorized

Depression can be monstrous. It forms like a mountain of impending darkness looming on the horizon. Waking every day to start the climb, it can take a lifetime. Sometimes you can get lost. Some days you may find yourself further down the mountain than you were the day before. The shadows move to block your path. You stumble on the small rocks and debris. The world wishes you to go no further. This can be your daily struggle that no one else sees. You trudge along in hopes of conquering the darkness.

Jimmy Kalitz was a tank mechanic in the Marine Corps in the early 2000’s. He left Fort Knox after completing training to be stationed at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. His first place of residence was with Headquarters and Service Company (H&S). He was a rude, obnoxious, overly confident jerk from New Jersey. He would talk to anyone and…

This is a friend’s thoughts on PTSD and his story. Check him out..

Jeremy Rawls

Everything today has a label or title. We as a society can’t seem to get passed the labels. It also seems that many of the labels are not fully functional and lack depth into the true issue. A primary example is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The name in itself brings a certain dislike and labeling onto the person diagnosed but in actuality the title is vague. Media has created a false image of this title and in doing so they have hurt many individuals that deserve better.

Through evaluation, I was told I lived in a heightened state of alertness. When simple tasks of minor confrontations were present, it would trigger the “flight or fight response” which in my case was “fight”. I never noticed it because to me I just felt frustrated with things. Anger management classes did nothing to alleviate the problems. Anxiety training provided the most…

We, as Americans, hear a lot about the National Debt, which, at this exact moment, sits at $17,382,327,853,713.82, that’s $17 trillion and some change. If you take that overwhelming number and divide it amongst the unwashed masses, (all Americans) then each of us would pay a measly $54,777.39

That doesn’t sound so bad does it? If you take into account that $17 trillion is only the current debt, and the fact that in the month since September 30 we’ve added $2.58 billion a day. That means that, with the speed of the USPS, by the time your check arrived in DC it would no longer cover the tab Obama racked up.

Since we don’t know exactly how much extra debt the politicians and bureaucrats will pile on top of that in the next two months, it would take someone a lot smarter than me to do the math.

Let’s just look at what we owe right now. You’re probably thinking, “But you just said that right now the debt is just over $17 trillion.”

I did say that. What I didn’t say was that what we currently owe and what we know we will owe are two different things.

The United States has a lot of unfunded future liabilities that are a known amount, more or less. These liabilities are things that the government has promised to pay, things like SSI and Medicare.

The current unfunded Social Security liability is a hefty $15,686,833,083,922.26. That $15 trillion pales in comparison to the Medicare liability which comes to $80,511,962,496,192.33. Then tack on the prescription liability, $20,221,539,759,871.63, and of course healthcare, $9,309,047,358,458.26, and you end up with a $125,729,382,698,444.48.

$125 trillion is nothing to scoff at. That doesn’t include the debt we already have, but what’s $17 trillion when you are working towards $150 trillion?

Just to remind you, these liabilities only include what I’ve listed, only what laws that obligate the government to pay out in entitlements. If we change the laws it would change that liability, bringing the number up or down depending on the changes. Another thing to remember is that the $125 trillion in liabilities does not include the growth of entitlements or the additional debt that will be racked up by other programs.

The liability distributed among every American comes to $396,214.37 per person.

The big shocker? The amount broken down into US taxpayers is not every American, because if you aren’t paying taxes why would you pay for the nation’s debt?

This number, per taxpayer mind you, totals $1.1 million. That would take the average tax payer over 28 years to pay, if they did nothing but pay this debt for those 28 years. Personally it would take me about 44 years if my income never changed. By the time I paid my share I would be ready to draw Social Security.

I know, looking at all these overwhelming numbers gets old, but just think about how long it would take you to pay your portion. That’s what every American needs to think about before they vote in the 2016 elections. I want people to go to Washington that will do their job and reduce my portion as much as possible, and as fast as viable. How about you?

A New Beginning

I have been recruited by the Facebook famous Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children group to write for their brand new web site. I want to thank first of all my beautiful wife for sending them a link to my blog, behind my back, when they put out a call for new talent. She believed in me when I didn’t and because of her I’ll be writing for a web site that had a half million fans on Facebook before they launched the site. It could possibly lead to me being paid to do what I really enjoy doing.

I also want to thank all 23 of my subscribers that I currently have and especially the ones who have followed me since I started this blog and even before then when I was just ranting and raving on Facebook. If it weren’t for you guys I probably would have quit before I even got started.

For now I won’t be writing any more articles on this page but I will, at least for the time being, continue my Quote of the Day. Although I pitched the idea for moving that to the new site also, so we will see what comes of that.

This is not the end of True Storey this is only the second chapter in what I hope will be a really long book.

You can find my author’s page HERE

And the website’s home page at misguidedchildren.com

I hope to see you there

PS – If you know my true identity you are welcome to post comments but please do not mention any relation or my real name. We have been having problems with trolls looking up and attacking the Facebook pages of the contributors and trying to get them kicked off Facebook. The creator of Misguided Children has to create a new fake profile every week or two because of this and I don’t want to have to do that.

They are calling it Benghazi-gate because of the cover up but in truth this “scandal” is in a whole other league from Watergate. Nixon was impeached and he resigned because of the cover up of his ordering of break-ins to steal the psychological records of his competition. The funny thing is that today the government reads our e-mails and records all our calls, among other things, and it’s no big deal. It’s actually not that funny but I’m getting off topic…. The difference, and what makes Benghazi so much worse is that not one single person was killed in those break-ins or the subsequent coverup.

Almost eight months have passed since the attack on the consulate in Benghazi and we are just now beginning to get some semblance of truth from the testimonies of these whistleblowers. Yesterday, Greg Hicks, the deputy chief of mission in Libya who became the top U.S. diplomat in the country after the slaughter of Ambassador Chris Stevens, told the House Government Oversight Committee that not only was the attack on 9/11/12 an act of terrorism, but that officials knew it immediately, that the administration had been warned of a deteriorating security situation, and that on the night of the attack “it appeared some were trying to lure even more U.S. personnel into a separate ‘ambush’ while the attack was still being carried out.”

Hicks also said he had been contacted early by Stevens, and that the ambassador told him, “Greg, we are under attack.” It would be the last time Hicks would hear from Stevens alive.

This is a huge story, historical even, because Hick’s testimony along with the others are completely contradicting the administration’s narrative of the “offensive video” starting a spontaneous protest that turned ugly. What makes the administration look worse is the fact that this nonsense about a YouTube video wasn’t just bad information that they received only to be withdrawn latter, this shows that it was BS from the beginning and they knew it was BS all along. Hicks noted that before Rice went on her round-robin of television appearances on Sept. 16, he had never heard of the video and that the ambassador never mentioned any demonstration before he died.

“I was stunned,” Hicks said of Rice’s comments. “My jaw dropped, and I was embarrassed.” He added that Rice never bothered to talk to him before she made those appearances. Neither did former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton before Rice went on. And Obama couldn’t be bothered; after all, he was in the middle of an election.

Also reveled at the hearing of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Benghazi was an e-mail from Beth Jones, the acting assistant secretary of state for Near East Affairs. The September 12 email—disclosed for the first time on Wednesday—said Jones had spoken to Libya’s ambassador to Washington who said the attack was the work of former Gadhafi regime loyalists. Jones said she told the ambassador: “The group that conducted the attacks, Ansar al-Sharia, is affiliated with Islamic terrorists.”

So we know for sure now that they lied about the video and knew the whole time that it was a premeditated attack. That’s great but what about the fact that this attack lasted for eight hours and we sent our people no help?

There were F-16 fighter jets just across the Mediterranean 1,000 miles away at Aviano Air Base in Italy. There were armed predator drones at 20,000 feet in the area. There was a CIA base right up the street. There was a four man team of Army special forces getting ready to leave on a Libyan C-130 cargo plane from Tripoli to Benghazi when they were told to stand down. There were two aircraft carriers relatively close by. The question is no longer if there was a stand down ordered, but why it was ordered and who ordered it.

Was it simply a “failure of leadership” as Dick Cheney said or was this a deliberate order from the very top to do nothing, effectively signing those four death warrants? As of right now we have no clear answer to any of those questions. There are a few things that I find interesting enough to put together a possible theory.

For starters we have the State Department trying desperately to cover up the truth about what happened that night. Greg Hicks testified yesterday that he was discouraged from talking to anyone from Congress by the State Department’s lawyers just before Trey Goudy (R-SC) came to Libya to investigate what had happened. We have also heard from Hillary Clinton during her testimony saying, shouting rather, “Why does it matter,” when she was pressed about her role in the stand down.

There is also the fact that we had a nice little weapons cache there in Benghazi that included SA-7 heat seeking missiles and rocket propelled grenades. It just so happens that Al Qaeda has released videos of themselves with a bunch of SA-7 missiles bragging about getting them from America.

It is widely known that the US is supplying weapons to what the media is calling the rebel forces in Syria. They call them the rebels because calling them what they really are wouldn’t sound so good. These rebels have pledged their allegiance to and are being led by none other than Al Qaeda.

The CIA mission in Benghazi was to find and acquire heavy arms seized in the overthrow of Gaddafi. It has been reported by CSN that Benghazi was a base for running guns to the Syrian rebels. For more on the connection between Stevens, Libya, the Free Syria Army, and Al Qaeda check out this article

So to sum all this up…

We supported the Al Qaeda forces in Libya to overthrow Gaddafi and install a puppet Al Qaeda supported government. We are now supplying the FSA, who is chock full of Al Qaeda, with heavy weapons, using Benghazi as a base of operations. Ambassador Stevens was most likely aware of the gun running and was probably involved in the process. He was attacked and killed in what appears to be an inside job involving his hired security team and Al Qaeda linked terrorists. Any and all chance of rescue or back up for the Ambassador was ordered to stand down. The State Department created a narrative of the events that was anything but accurate and stuck with that story as long as they could before bending on it falling back on the “faulty information” excuse. They continue to cover up the truth by avoiding questions and telling people not to talk to Congress.

I don’t know what our government is hiding in this whole ordeal but they definitely are trying to hide something huge. Is it the gun running? Did they set up the attack? Did they want Chris Stevens dead? Or is there something even more sinister at work?

Keep your eyes peeled and hopefully we’ll find out soon..
