The State of Our Union, Strong, the State of Humankind, Questionable; Democrats Refuse to Budge on Abortion, Literally

Making America Great Again

I've always looked forward to the State of the Union Address.

It's true.

I enjoy our political process and how things work here in the United States.

I’ve written about my fascination with the Goldwater-Johnson race.....I was only six years old, but the whole experience, made quite an impression on me, I loved it.

Weirdee….as my kids would have once said!

This year was no exception, I was looking forward to the Presidential Address.

I am very proud of President Trump and of his many accomplishments!

I see an accomplishment as that which benefits America and is always in the best interest of the American citizen.

'Make America Great Again', is a positive goal, regardless of what the left has tried to make it or turn it into.

Never thought I would see the day when a group of people, a political party, Leftists would work as hard as they do against this amazing Country and against her amazing, enterprising people!

Most people understand the President’s slogan for what it is, nothing more, nothing less.

They understand the potential of this great Nation and understand that over time, we've allowed for and have accepted, mediocrity.

We remember well, President Obama knocking this Country on a regular basis, both here and abroad and we are also well aware that the Left, has had control over our media and over our children’s *education (*indoctrination) for far too long.

At one time, children learned about the miracle of America, patriotism was embraced in classrooms and the genius of our Founding Fathers was taught and discussed. I have to wonder what type of scare tactics are utilized and how much America-bashing takes place in many classrooms, across this land that I so love, on a daily basis.

Now, we have a President that loves this Country and isn’t in the habit of dissing it, he is in the habit of boasting about it and as far as I’m concerned, that must always be a prerequisite for the Presidency, from here on out!

He had a lot to brag about...a lot of good news to report, during the State of the Union address and he touched on many subjects.


Sweet Life snubbed

Through the twitter grapevine, I heard that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other females in the Democratic Party, were planning to "send a message" to the President and to those of us, watching in the audience, during the State of the Union address.

I wondered if they would walk out on the President arm-in-arm, chant a little ditty, yawn and stretch with sheer boredom, take a knee.....

So many options to choose from and utilize in a very limited hour's time.

What they chose to do, was far worse than any of that!

The President spoke of 'Life'; not of ending Roe v. Wade, not of doing away with measures to save a woman's life in the midst of a dangerous pregnancy, but, of placing value on new life, moments away from entering the world and these women as if paid performers, right on cue...scowled and sneered and frowned. While others jumped to their feet, in thunderous applause for sweet, precious life, they remained seated and stone faced.

They were all dressed in white for the, "sending of the message". I wasn’t privy to the memo, but I believe 'the inside message' may have been, to flaunt Girl Power, Chicks Ruling, Female Phenoms...

Yes agreed, very juvenile, but due to unhealthy doses of a bunch of crap fed to them since they were little squirts and a serious lacking of the proper teaching of U.S. History, the U.S. Constitution and, apparently, of all Founding documents, why they exist, why they are in place, this...is what it has wrought!

These women aren't in these positions, in the best interest of America or her citizens. They are not there in order to 'Make America Great Again' or to represent their Constituents to the best of their ability, they are there, for themselves.

I also wonder, if any of them have a patriotic bone in their body.

They are there as activists with agendas and that all played out, right before our eyes, during the State of the Union address.

They took the opportunity to jump to their feet, in their biggest show of thunderous applause, only when the topic was all about them!

Nancy Pelosi has always been known for tooting her own horn, patting her own back and it makes sense...they have learned from her, how to do the same.

While many talked of this being a “very special moment, a coming together”, I did not see it that way, not in the least!

The topic: Them

The topic: Them

How much harm can they do?

The Leftist, Socialist Democratic agenda 2019...and beyond: (in a nutshell)

  • No restrictions whatsoever on abortion (beyond the current (9) States) they want it in all 50 States
  • Get more socialists into office, bringing full-blown Socialism to America
  • For more value be placed on our ever-changing (since the beginning of time) climate and less value placed on a fetal heartbeat
  • The rebuilding of America - bringing her up to "environmentalist standards" (argh....this one is as out of control as their wishes for abortion...extreme)
  • Giving Government far more power over the people in all aspects of our lives (to be more like Venezuela, Cuba!?)

Is that enough to make you feel a little nauseous?

I don't want you sick, you are not at the end yet.

I'll stop listing for now...it's a lot to have soak in, I know!

Democratic socialists, which have now come into power in the United States of America, have had time for all of this lunacy to soak in, they've been marinating in it since infancy.

If Momma is anything like them, they are lucky to have arrived, much less come into power?

I digress...back to the goop, Kool-Aid, whatever that 'stuff' is...they've been marinating in, you and I just need more time to catch up, to become as enlightened as they are. You and I aren't cut from that same cloth and we understand the dangers of Kool-Aid!

True colors

As dangerous as I think some of these wayward young socialists are, along with older, but obviously not very wise adults that really should know better, embracing socialism, we are seeing some positive signs from the youngest generation, they aren't onboard with a lot of this.

Glimmers of hope!

So much has come out about the leftist influence in our Public schools, the many very bad ideas, such as common core, which kids believe to be as screwed up as their Parents do. Fortunately for kids...and for their Parents, common core is fading fast and soon to be or already eliminated in some States.

Children and young people were out in droves for the March for Life. They weren’t just there, taking up space, they were involved!

The Women's March numbers were way down from years past, it really was a pathetic display and that is a marvelous thing.

It is such a big turn off, when you see people marching, not for something healthy or positive or good, but rather for something very dark and ugly. It really is a death march and this year, it seemed to be dying off.

These are all hopeful signs!

As for the Democratic Socialist women and what they did and didn’t do, in their ”sending a message” to President Trump, now exposed for who they really are...

although they were all matching in white, I believe their true colors were shining through and it is not beautiful like a rainbow, far from it!

When you are right...you are right!

No I told you so, though. :(

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on March 27, 2019:

Thanks Yves for stopping by.

Such a great description of young AOC. She always strikes me as a back-stabbing mean girl, all smiles until you cross her....I went to school with girls like her....(back when the dinosaurs roamed ;))

Yves on March 27, 2019:

Trump delivered a great speech that night. I tried not to be distracted by AOC's angry glaring. She looked like a 14-year old who had her i-phone taken away by her parents. Pretty much, nothing has changed since. Her attitude remains the same. Guess that's what happens when you never become an adult. Well, she believes we only have twelve years to live, so maybe that's her excuse.

Anyhoo, good news about the March for Life. I hate that late term abortion is now accepted policy by Democrats in Congress. That is most ungodly and will surely bring this nation down.....among other things. On the other hand, you pointed to glimmers of hope. We must pray for more of that.

Good to see you again, AB. Thank you for your insight.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 26, 2019:

You haven't seen me in Central Florida traffic, surrounded by tourists! ;)

Shannon Henry from Texas on February 26, 2019:

I don't believe you'd ever want to hurt a fly, Angie. LOL

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 26, 2019:

Thank you Shannon, you've made my day!

I don't ever mean to hurt anyone that is already hurting by the choices they've made, but I can't sit idly by, while infanticide is being discussed so casually, as if pesticide and the killing of weeds is being discussed.

Shannon Henry from Texas on February 26, 2019:

You have a very kind heart, A B. Your dilemma makes perfect sense to me. However, I also have not ever seen you placing judgement on any particular person even when you speak out.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 26, 2019:

Thanks Eric for sharing.

There are so many heartwarming stories like yours, that need to be shared.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on February 26, 2019:

AB I am adopted. I easy could have been aborted back then. My first born was as blue as you can imagine. My fourth born was troubled by a month old premature. Messes at birth. Both with IQ's way off the charts now and doing good work shedding light and love.Can we imagine? If you took one away you would have effected so many with out their being lives.Choice is strange. I understand Free Will but it really is not "free". Good on you.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 26, 2019:

Clarification: I know that I fall short daily, my question is pertaining to the subject matter at hand.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 26, 2019:

The sermon at church Sunday was about Jesus instruction for us; we are not to point out a speck in another's eye, while we have a plank in our own.

In other words, we aren't to judge.

We needn't be so opinionated.

(Yes, I know, that sermon was for people like me) (the opinionated part :))

This morning I am thinking, once again, about how far things have been allowed to go with abortion.

If Vermont's Governor signs House Bill 57, a woman will not even need an excuse to abort, it can be at any stage of the pregnancy, for ANY reason!

While the wording in other State bills suggests that a woman, at the minimum, use anxiety as a reason to abort, Vermont has made it crystal clear that a woman need not be anxious to abort her baby, she doesn't need a reason! They've also made it crystal clear, that a baby, even at full-term, is not a person, therefore, has no rights.

On occasion, a baby will survive an attempted abortion, apparently it happens more than we realize.

Survivors of botched abortion, are speaking out, now more than ever before.

The latest, Democrats have just blocked a Republican bill to save the life of a baby born alive, after a failed abortion.

Let that sink in for a moment.....

My question, my dilemma.....

Is my shortcoming that I not only pray for hearts and minds to be changed when it comes to abortion, but that I write about it and speak out about it too?

Heartbroken.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on February 25, 2019:

I have just spent time working on our family Union. How fantastic. I erred in some regards and accepted it. That is the more perfect union.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 25, 2019:

It is madness when blood relatives are taken from (or never given to) loving family members....those that really do love them and want them to be a part of their lives, because for whatever reason, they've gotten caught up in a flawed system.

Government was never intended to be so all powerful, playing games with people's lives and yet Dems want even more powerful, more controlling Government, Socialist-style. Venezuela's hell is playing out for all the world to see, while people in the U.S. are embracing the idea of it here, ugh....I digress!

So screwed up!

Abortion has taken us from; only in cases of rape or incest or to protect the life of the Mother or baby will not be able to survive outside the womb.... to justifying eliminating them at any stage through birth, for whatever reason to....pretending that they really do not even exist, unless Mom says different.

Where will it end?

We've gone way beyond a slippery slope.

Shannon Henry from Texas on February 25, 2019:

Maybe this is a radical thought, but I thought of extremes such as slavery and more human trafficking.

I've personally seen what happens when the government pays states for adopting out babies and young children in the foster care system, but you can also look up stories online. Children taken from families unfairly and then given to strangers to raise them. There are cases where CPS and DCFS are needed to truly protect children from abuse and severe neglect. However, there are also far, far too many instances of children being taken from their biological families for ulterior motives. I mean, I never even knew that the states got federal funds when they adopted a child to someone until my husband's granddaughter was caught up in the system and we lost her. She had us, her daddy, her daddy's mama who all wanted her.

My point is that if they can do that to families now, what could happen in instances like the one you propose as the devil's advocate? And would it stay at just mother who changed her mind about abortion or extend to any parent, any family?

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 25, 2019:

….and now I am putting on my devil's advocate hat.

If the infant is not a person, even at full development, (according to the Law of radical States) what if Mom has second thoughts after going home with the non-person?

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 25, 2019:

Vermont already has no-limits on abortion, so with the introduction of House Bill 57, all that was really left for them to do, was to include wording to make it crystal clear...that an infant is NOT a person, therefore is not entitled to LIFE, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

Their Governor is expected to sign it!

I wonder ... is this the next radical step for all other liberal States?

:-(

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 15, 2019:

We are glad you are here Eric! :)

Your birth mother giving you up for adoption, acted unselfishly and that is something you and your family can always hold on to.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on February 14, 2019:

Strange matters are abortions.And they effect our union. I am so glad I was "given up" for adoption. I know my birth date but do not celebrate it except for going on a real tough hike to remember to stay alive.

But my "chosen day" is celebrated in at least five countries. Love seldom has real choices.

Wow, I just proclaim it once again. What a wonderful country to live in.

Four wonderfully productive children make our country better and call me dad. And yet by today's standard I would have been aborted.

My commodities and internet trading days took me into far reaches of our world.

Americans my be despised but they are respected. I never met a Mongolian that did not want to talk about California.

Today I promise to contribute.

Shannon Henry from Texas on February 14, 2019:

Yes, it requires emotional preparation. As I said, I almost didn't read it because of the title. But to me, so much of the tragedy isn't that the child was born. Don't get me wrong, I disagree with the sentiment that a late-term abortion would have been a kindness. It's the grief of that woman that is so powerful still to this day.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 14, 2019:

As for the article you sent Shannon, I'll have to prepare myself mentally before opening it. :( As I said, the title alone gave me a bad feeling! I have the most precious niece, with special needs (I've personally seen and have been a part of all that goes into her day to day care) but I cannot imagine earth without her.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 14, 2019:

I'm curious if the leftists that disagree, regard the opinion of a Physician as a legitimate source. We aren't to disagree with them (lefties) on any subject whatsoever, if we aren't a Doctor or a Scientist, soooo.....just curious if the leftist cluster hanging out in the forums, eager to pounce on every Conservative that disagrees with *them (*the 'Authorities' on every subject) would care to comment.

Shannon Henry from Texas on February 14, 2019:

I'm no doctor (or nurse), but I'd agree with that. That article that I sent you on FB didn't even change my thinking about that.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 14, 2019:

Betty A F from Florida on February 12, 2019:

Eric Dierker,

I'm sorry I didn't respond sooner to your comment to me.

I'm glad to hear that you found a wonderful public school for your 3rd grader. When my family moved to Florida in 1999, I was so impressed by the public school my children attended. My daughter was in a Christmas play, and to my amazement, the music teacher at her school chose Christian songs! It was awesome, almost like being at a church service. Those days are pretty much gone sadly.

A few weeks ago I was reading an article about how things changed when the bible was removed from public schools. There are actual statistics that show how teen pregnancy, assault, theft, and other crimes shot up. (I think I might write an article on that!)

My focus is never on race. I recently took one of those genealogy DNA tests, and it turns out I'm 25% Hispanic 14% American Indian, along with east and west Asian, I have DNA from Muslim nations, and I was surprised to see that I have some Jewish DNA. I always thought I was German, and I learned that I have zero German DNA, but a high level of Scandinavian. Since taking this test, I have been contacted by other relatives from around the world who matched up, and many have sent pictures. I have relatives who are black, brown, yellow...You name it. I'm thinking that it's highly likely that every single American has the same wide array of DNA. I have become convinced that there is not a single person in America who is one single race.

I'm sorry I went into a long explanation about this, but it seems that so many today are playing the "race card," or calming that others have "white privilege." After what I've learned, I'm convinced that the MSM race baiting is a complete farce. It seemed that you were making a strong case in that area, for reasons unknown to me, so I thought I'd clarify where I stand in that area.

Hope you are having a wonderful week.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 12, 2019:

Amen Eric! Thank you.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on February 12, 2019:

What a wonderful comment. We are so indebted to those who serve in humility and grace.

Shannon Henry from Texas on February 12, 2019:

Sending you a FB message.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 12, 2019:

I've just attended the funeral of a beloved Uncle.

It turns out, he had received many medals, while in service to this Country, during the Korean War.

We never knew!

In fact, he had received many awards, over a lifetime of giving back, in the field of Education and Ministry.

He was a very accomplished, yet humble individual and even during the funeral service, his achievements were downplayed, at his request.

I've always admired him and now when he is no longer here to hug and thank, I respect him more than ever before.

I want to be that person, going through life to make a difference in another person's life. Unselfishly, doing for others, only seeking God's approval and none other.

Godspeed Uncle Bud. Great will be your reward!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 08, 2019:

Thanks Vivian. I agree it is unfortunate the way conservatives are treated. Trust me, I’ve been through it plenty!

I will check out your blog.....and plug away, anytime! :)

Vivian Coblentz on February 08, 2019:

Great article, AB. Yes, all those women in white made me ill. It blows my mind that they could scowl over protecting a baby who is viable outside the womb. I heard Laura Ingraham say that a new white tennis shoe was just released, and since it had been Black History Month, the shoe was labeled racist. Yet, she pointed out the hypocrisy of these women wearing white, and because it was them, this wasn't racist. Amazing.

I also wrote about the State of the Union address on my blog, if you have any interest in reading it (sorry for the shameless plug). https://voicesfromeverydayamerica.blogspot.com I am totally frustrated because I tried to create a Facebook business page to drive traffic to my blog, and within a day, it was taken down because it had to be reviewed for violating their community policies. Maybe it's the pictures I attach to the blogs, or maybe it's because my message is conservative. Grrr!! Haven't terrorist groups had Facebook pages? Yet, voice a conservative message, and the Facebook police are all over it!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 08, 2019:

Hi Pop, I think the best description I've heard about Ms. Pelosi, "she was zombie-like, sucking on her tooth."

The scary part is that she is coming off lately as the most grounded of the current crowd!!

I too worry about Dems and voter fraud.

breakfastpop on February 08, 2019:

The fools wore white to commemorate the Suffrage Movement, or so they said. I was disgusted by their behavior. Not one of them deserves to serve in Congress. Pelosi was a portrait of hate. Her hideous twisted mouth and disrespect said all anyone needs to know about her. This Socialist movement won't go anywhere, but it may ensure that Trump gets another term. I worry about voter fraud, because I believe the Dems will go all out to stack the deck.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 08, 2019:

Yucky flu, so sorry Shannon!

Yeah, not to "toot my own horn" or anything like that, I'd say I've covered the highlights and lowlights of the S.O.T.U. pretty sufficiently. ;)

Aww school days, so much learning took place, but also so many great memories made and I think each one of us could share a rebellious moment in time(for some of us, more than one!)

Feel better!!!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 08, 2019:

Eric, you should go for it...can you imagine the great material you'd gather, in order to continue your writing career!

Shannon Henry from Texas on February 08, 2019:

For some reason, this brings back a memory from high school. My class (girls) had T-shirts made up that changed the Absolut Vodka label to fit our class stats and Midwestern description. So because we were class of 2000, it mentioned '00 proof or something like that. Technically, that meant no alcohol mentioned, but our definition of a technicality was, of course, different than those of the deans. We were told that if we all wore those shirts to school on the day it was planned then we would not be allowed to walk the stage at graduation. So....the group of girls who originally came up with the idea decided they were going to make a statement about how they felt about that ruling. They each wore shirts with a single letter on it. When standing together it spelled moo, I believe. I'm if or how they were disciplined for that move.

Anyway, we've been dealing with the flu around here and busy with work. I missed the State of the Union so I didn't see anything firsthand other than your photos here, but that's what comes to mind when you mention juvenile antics all in white.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on February 08, 2019:

Mrs. Williams I am excited. I read about a program to give jobs to people. I shook my head and read it again. Right now I can walk into a McDonald's and get a job. They need folks at my local grocery store. Management openings are endless. I put in a resume' someplace for fun 5 years ago and they are contacting me to come to work based on five year old stuff.

Did you know that for every Gov. worker "that was on furlough" there was a private sector job open for them?

I pretty much do not know - who, what, where and how. But America is doing great.

Anger seems so misplaced right now. Jubilation should be the rule.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 08, 2019:

No problem Eric, I love the dialogue.

Great that your son is challenged and learning. When I look back to all that was taught, back when I was in third grade (when the dinosaurs roamed ;) ) it's a wonder that I got through. Cursive, multiplication, long division, fractions, in depth history, science, novels.....Thank God for third grade!

The best part though, was the prayer, pledge and singing of patriotic songs which began our day...every day of the week!!!

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on February 08, 2019:

Excuse me for commenting so quickly in succession.

Betty I have a great public school for my 3rd grader. We petitioned to enroll there as we were slated for a different one. Night and Day. My son would have easy been the number one at the others school. But now he struggles to be in the top five.

He enjoys his Christian after school at school program.

We maintain very open dialogue. The liberal teachers only are allowed to be a conduit for discussion in our home.

Parents that allow schools to develop young minds are failures in our group that does not have a single only white child. Birthday party today with cuisine of cliche' Filipino, Mexican, Italian and "American" foods.Thirty of us will say a prayer before eating.

America is strong.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 08, 2019:

So good to hear from you again Betty. Thank you and I agree with every word you shared here.

We have to get our schools back, we must be teaching about all that makes this Nation...exceptional!

I applaud home-schooling Parents and private schools that have never stopped teaching the things which truly matter and that is exactly where public schools must return to.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on February 08, 2019:

Hi Eric, even when we aren't living up to our full potential, this is STILL the greatest Country that God gave man. No argument from me on that and as long as there are AOC's trying to "fix" what ain't broken..... I will be there (until called home) to be a ginormous thorny thorn in their side. :)

God Bless America!

Betty A F from Florida on February 08, 2019:

Excellent article! With the Main stream media not covering both sides of every issue, it's important that we have discussions, and examine the real issues that we see happening within the USA, along with the policies that the liberal left wish to impose on the people of our nation. Our education system most definitely needs a serious revamp. If American children do not understand what our nation represents, and the true history behind it our nation is left terribly vulnerable to the destruction that the far left democrats are hellbent on achieving.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on February 08, 2019:

No matter the poll I don't think the fringes really get the fact that Mr. Trump is well liked by around fifty percent of the nation. And the fringes make up a very loud very minor support.

I think the fringes are good for us. Stay on your toes America.

Trump has to deal with RINO's and now Pelosi has to deal with over the top socialism.

I talk of love first and politics second. Now I start out with Harris and Ocasio and the hate speech just dwindles. Big difference from six months ago.

I sure love my already great nation again.
