Politics At Work…

Greetings Everyone!

I pray that all is well. I have been working hard on my fictional writing as well as literally – I got a seasonal part-time job this year to earn extra money for my book publication costs. Thanks again so much to those of you who generously donated to my Indiegogo campaign for the editing/publication costs for my first novel, The Elements, which will be released as an e-book in March 2013! I recent purchased the domain name for my website so please note that the new website is http://www.theelementsbooks.com! Okay….back to business. This is just a brief post regarding a conversation I had tonight at work with many regarding…..(drumroll)..Obama vs Romney….(it’s informal ya’ll – hey, I’m a Southerner!)

Now, I normally don’t discuss politics at work but today a young brother said, “Have you voted for Obama yet?”. Note the language. He didn’t ask if I had voted yet, just whether or not I had voted for Obama yet. So I told him that I won’t be voting for Obama. There were several other people standing around and they all were like “Huh? What? Wow?” They asked why & I explained. When I started explaining more & more started gathering around & listening. It literally became “Ask Talitha” night. They had ALL sorts of questions for me about specific issues – most of the questions were about Obamacare to be honest & they all wanted to know WHY I was supporting Mitt Romney.

80% of them said that they had never met a black Conservative/Republican and that they really appreciated the fact that I answered their questions immediately & in great detail. I must have answered about 70-80 questions – literally. I didn’t lie to them & told them that although Romney was not my top pick I still support him because social issues aside, IMO he will best handle the economic issues. I really had to educate many on the growing debt. I am shocked that there were not more questions about that. One black woman came up to me later & said that she really appreciated all that I shared because she was a Democrat but didn’t support Obama but was afraid to share that. She spoke with me at length about the history of the Democratic party & the GOP as well. She said “You are so bold!”

Needless to say, tonight was a very interesting & wonderful night. I don’t know how many minds I changed, but I know I got them to think hard about the issues & their level of involvement in the politics in general. I explained why we all must get involved in local politics as well. A few said to me “Obama is trying – the Republicans won’t pass his bills.” You all that know me & follow know I quickly debunked that statement. Several told me they were going to do a “fact check” on me & get back to me tomorrow. I told them….”by all means….don’t believe me outright, do your homework”. Why? because somehow, we have got to shift the mindset of the voting public to one of blind apathy or “following” to one of “fact-checking” of our leaders. Folks, this is the REAL “Hope & Change” – ROMNEY/RYAN 2012!!!!

Introducing the “Bloguement” (Conservative vs Liberal)

Introducing the “Bloguement” (Conservative vs Liberal)

One of the things that troubles me as I participate in & observe the plethora of political discussions throughout social media is the manner in which conservatives & liberals argue at one another & engage in name calling, instead of healthy, respectful dialogue. So a few months ago I asked for recommendations for a liberal with whom I could have such civil discourse with, even though we are ideologically opposed. I was specifically looking for a liberal blogger and after several recommendations, I was introduced to Yvette Carnell through our mutual Facebook friend Charlie Harris, who is also a Christian Conservative. After several discussions we both agreed that it would be a great idea to host this “bloguement”, featuring honest, civil debate in blog form on the political & social hot topics of the day.

Yvette Carnell is a self-professed Independent Liberal who is an editor of African-American news site yourblackword.net and also maintains her own popular blog breakingbrown.com. She is a former Hill staffer, writer, editor, social media enthusiast & I consider her a very worthy “opponent”.In all honesty, in my view, debating her is sort of like debating the liberal version of myself (if there were such a thing). She is also a fellow native of Atlanta, Georgia and a young black woman as am I. Her erudite commentary on social & political topics is well known throughout the liberal blogosphere. Yvette is a political analyst for the African-American business and politics site Madame Noire (formerly atlantapost.com) and she also contributes to internet newspaper giant The Huffington Post. Yvette is also a featured video commentator, in the popular videos of yourblackworld.net creator Dr. Boyce Watkins on Youtube.

I’m a Christian Conservative blogger, Republican & member of the Tea Party. My articles have appeared on numerous political blogs & websites including the Yahoo News Contributor Network,  KiraDavis.net, former GOP presidential nominee Herman Cain’s CainTV & of course my own blog, Conservative Calmversation. I’m known throughout the conservative blogosphere for my provocative topics, candid opinions, humor & apologetics for the Conservative cause & the Christian faith. I am also featured on the Facebook page dedicated to highlight minority women within the Conservative movement, Conservative Black Women. I am also an editorial writer for Black Literature Magazine. The first novel of my fictional series, The Elements Book I is due for publication in early 2013 and my website is here. On Sundays, I host a 30 minute BlogTalkradio show called BookReads, highlighting authors of fiction.

The first topic that Yvette & I will be “blogueing” on is “Design your Ideal Healthcare Plan for America”. We both agree that the current state of healthcare in the private sector has not, is not & never has worked. We both dislike Obamacare, but for different reasons. Yvette is in favor of true universal healthcare run by the government and I am in favor of true healthcare reform, finally repairing what is wrong with the broken system we have had. Stay tuned, it’s going to be a very interesting endeavor on both of our parts! Input your email address (and confirm) on both of our blogsites to receive each edition of our “bloguement” to your email inbox!

Thomas Sowell: The Paul Ryan Choice

Thomas Sowell: The Paul Ryan Choice

Friends, this is from townhall.com, which is an excellent source of conservative editorials. If you are not subscribed to their blogs now please do so asap! Thomas Sowell knocks it out of the park yet again, so of course, with the election soon approaching I had to share with my readers:

“Governor Mitt Romney’s choice of Congressman Paul Ryan as his vice-presidential running mate is one of those decisions that seem obvious — if not inevitable — in retrospect, even though it was by no means obvious to most of us beforehand.

Anyone who wants to get a quick sense of who Paul Ryan is should watch a short video of a February 2010 meeting in which Congressman Ryan politely, but devastatingly, “schools” Barack Obama on the utter fraudulence of the statistics that the Obama administration was using to claim that ObamaCare would reduce the deficit. That video is available on the Drudge Report.

As a long-time member, and now chairman, of the Budget Committee in the House of Representatives, Paul Ryan is thoroughly familiar with both the facts and the fictions in the federal government’s budget. In recent years, the fictions have grown much bigger than the facts. But, as Congressman Ryan reminded the president, hiding spending is not the same as reducing spending.

If this year’s election is going to be decided on the basis of hard facts, the Obama administration is doomed. But the Obama campaign is well aware of that, which is why we are hearing so many distracting innuendoes and outright lies about such peripheral issues as what Mitt Romney is supposed to have done while running Bain Capital — or even what is supposed to have happened at Bain Capital, years after Mitt Romney was long gone.” To continue reading click here.

I Didn’t Create This Post, Someone Else Did!

I Didn’t Create This Post, Someone Else Did!

My latest blog from KiraDavis.net:

I have to tell you all, that never before in my life, did I think we’d have such an irresponsible, inept & instigative president as what we have had since 2008 with Barack Hussein Obama. Here again, we have more incendiary, divisive rhetoric from one whose job it is to bring Americans together regardless of our backgrounds or personal situations. If you have not heard the latest case of “My teleprompter wasn’t working so I just went with the flow” syndrome, here it is below and I have to apologize to you all in advance: Yes, this is fifty-six seconds of your life you’ll never get back and for that I apologize:

FULL SPEECH HERE

One of the things that has always baffled me about the liberal attitude towards the wealthy is this notion that they had to cheat or steal in order to gain their wealth and/or that no hard work was ever involved. Even the children of the wealthy born with silver spoons in their mouths had someone who worked their butts off at some point in time to make their lifestyles so. As a Christian, I believe in biblical teachings and principles on fiscal matters one of which is found in Proverbs 13:22 which states:

 “A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children. And the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous.”

 In other words, we are supposed to work hard and create wealth to provide not just for the living members of our families but for generations to come <gasp!>. I don’t know which version of the Bible Barack Obama (a self-professed Christian) is reading from, but I trust my version with Proverbs written by Solomon and not Karl Marx. Barack Obama’s rhetoric (along with his policies) have only caused more strife throughout the fabric of America. He chastises those who have ambition and are responsible for innovation. He discourages economic growth and prosperity and is a champion instead of entitlements designed to keep American citizens dependent on the government rather than self. Somehow in his magical world businesses aren’t created by the business owners – “somebody else” did it.

“If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

Should Christians Vote For Mitt Romney?

Should Christians Vote For Mitt Romney?

Friends, I’m excited about tomorrow, Sunday July 15th, 2012 because I have the pleasure of hosting a discussion with two great Conservative friends of mine – Hassan Narullah and Walter Myers III, who are fantastic Christian, Conservative bloggers in their own right. We will be discussing the controversial topic of “Should Christians vote for Mitt Romney?” There are some Christians who say that we should not for various reasons and others still, who say that it does not matter. The first amendment gives all Americans the freedom of religion and I am of the opinion that the religious preference of any candidate should not matter (unless of course they happen to be a Satanist but that’s just me!). Everyone is welcome to join us and I am looking forward tot his because it should be very interesting! Again, this conference call/webinar will take place on tomorrow, July 15th, 2012 at 9pmEDT/6pmPDT. You can listen by calling (309)944-9515 and entering access code 2058409 when prompted. Also, the chatroom will be open online just click http://www.anymeeting.com/WebConference/default.aspx?ip_ek=TheElements1

We look forward to having you!

Obamacare: The Left Won the Battle, The Right Will Win the War

Obamacare: The Left Won the Battle, The Right Will Win the War

Words are not adequate enough to fully express my initial level of shock and disappointment  for the SCOTUS’ ruling on the constitutionality of Obamacare however, I am even more inspired by the increased level of patriotism in light of it. The SCOTUS has ruled that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) or “Obamacare” is unconstitutional under the commerce clause however, it was upheld as constitutional under the taxation clause. Most of the components of it remain in tact and the entire written opinion is here.

 Barack Obama has now added to his resume the largest tax increase on American citizens in US history. A very dangerous precedent has been set in that Congress can tax the citizens for anything – even inactivity. A mandate is a tax. Chief Justice Roberts’ message to Americans is very clear: This is a legislative problem that must be fixed by our elected officials. In other words, this needs to be handled politically for what it is – a tax increase. I think Roberts’ decision will silence Liberals who question the objectivity of the SCOTUS and he, as Chief Justice, is trying to balance maintaining the integrity of  the court and the sovereignty of the constitution. Instead of dealing with Obamacare politically, Republicans thought that they could just shift responsibility to the Supreme Court and it would be repealed or at worse, the individual mandate alone would be repealed. Now as per Chief Justice Roberts, we must take it back to Congress and deal with it politically. One slight benefit of the ruling is that now the Senate can’t filibuster on taxation issues like they could on issues of commerce but it’s up to us to do what is needed to ensure thatObamacare is repealed.

 This ruling is sending shock waves throughout populations of supporters for both political ideologies. Conservatives have gone from outrage to even more fervent support of GOP candidate Mitt Romney and a shift is bound to occur among independent voters as well.Within hours of the ruling, Mitt Romney’s campaign has received more 3 million dollars in donations and counting. All on the Left are not thrilled with this outcome either but both sides share responsibility for it. As analyst Michael Tanner of the CATO Institute reminded us regarding the predecessor for Obamacare (Romneycare) in 2008:

“Outside observers on both the Right and Left praised the program. Edmund Haislmaier of the Heritage Foundation hailed it as “one of the most promising strategies out there.” And Hillary Clinton adviser Stuart Altman said, ‘‘The Massachusetts plan could become a catalyst and a galvanizing event at the national level, and a catalyst for other states.”

Critics of Mitt Romney argue that “Romneycare” is a failure (and it is) but you see, that’s the very reason Romney is  the right man for the job because he has tried it, failed and knows firsthand that Obamacare, modeled after his plan will not work. Massachusetts was an experimental microcosm of socialist inspired healthcare in the local private sector. Romney has tested his healthcare hypothesis in Massachusetts and failed, whereas with President Obama weare the test and his hypothesis is based on Romney’s so as logic dictates, we will fail. Barack Obama either deliberately ignores this in light of the tax revenue he will generate or is afflicted with political myopia so severe that he cannot see it. You decide. Romney has responded to the ruling stating that “In order to get rid of Obamacare we must get rid of Obama” as well as pledged to repeal it if elected and I believe that he will do this and we will make sure he keeps this promise:

Mitt Romney’s Reaction to Obamacare Ruling

As of today, according to the Seattle Times Barack Obama still has his work cut out for him (and I concur):

“Still, the triumph for Obama will not necessarily be enduring. The president now faces the challenge of trying to sell the merits of the health-care law again in the court of public opinion, even as Romney and Republicans can campaign on their promise to repeal the measure.

It was telling that Obama used his address from the East Room two hours after the court’s ruling to explain the law and its benefits to Americans, something that even some supporters said he had failed to do effectively after the law’s passage in 2010.”

Most liberals are celebrating which is quite confusing as well as humorous to me to be honest, because this should be a losing situation for them as well. Their shouts of victory show me that they don’t even understand their ownplatform. So a regurgitated republican healthcare plan that has been proven as a failure is a victory? Huh? They are still forced to buy insurance from the private sector which liberals have rallied against from here to kingdom come, in favor of government run healthcare. I’m starting to think liberalism is a mental disorder today and I would, except for those liberals friends of mine who have remained consistent in their quest for true socialized medicine which they believe can be benevolent and best run by the federal government. One such friend is Independent Liberal bloggerYvette Carnell, a contributor and editor of YourBlackWorld.net who said to me, in reaction to the ruling:

 “The Supreme Court may have limited the Commerce Clause, but they still legalized a mandate to buy PRIVATE health insurance. For me, that’s a problem since there’s no government alternative. You’re forcing me into the market no matter what. What if prices are high, then what? I’m still mandated to participate? I have issues with that…”

 Now of course, I don’t agree with Yvette but at least she has the wisdom to understand what this really means for the healthcare aspect of the liberal platform and no one can dare say that she or other liberals who share this sentiment are inconsistent. Obamacare was a covert love affair between Barack Obama and taxation that the Supreme Court has now brought out into the open. Instead of keeping this affair secret any longer, an engagement has been announced by Chief Justice Roberts and it’s up to us on Tuesday, November 6th 2012 to interrupt the ceremony when asked and speak up or hold our peace for four more years. In effect, liberals celebrating Obamacare is equivalent to a turkey celebrating Thanksgiving.
