Here is what I think about the “illegal” immigrants

I have no problem with these people, and here is why, we will get smart, hard worker people that will contribute to our nation and help boost the economy, which I am all for. We get a lot of smart immigrants who go to our colleges, get out, start businesses and contribute to the economy. Excellent.

Also I do not want to take a mother or father away from their kids. That puts pressure on our desperately sad social services. I do not want to send a kid who came here as a child, grew up here and is American anyone else. All that kid knows is our country and being an American . He is an American.

Also immigrants do jobs that Americans will not do. Plan and simple. That crop is not going to pick itself. And this was recently proven when a farm put out a call for workers to pick their crops and they got no one to pick it. And that is just a hard fact.

I don’t get the hatred that is generated over people trying to make a better life for themselves in the supposed Land of Opportunity. .
These people are trying to obtain the American dream which, if they do, America is better for it, and boosts our economy. Which is a great thing. Also the business community wants something done because of just that.

We need to get over ourselves.

I’m not a scientist on climate change but a rocket scientist on cancer.

So you hear ‪#‎GOP‬ politicians say “I’m not a science when it comes to climate change” So my question is are they instant scientist if a doctor would say their child had cancer? Or is that somehow different.

Truth is if we did something about Climate Change, and invested heavily into renewable energy it would be an economic boom for our country,  because people would be working and spending their paychecks into the economy. Remember, consumer spending is what creates jobs, not rich people.

The Feature film I am developing.

For those who know me and follow my film blog My Journey into Film, I have been working on a film since 2011 on sexual violence. It has evolved from rape to forced rape for profit know as the sex trade/trafficking.  While having a conversation with my friend and Tampa filmmaker Marcus Kempton, I came up with the plot and story for the new film.  My film also covers combat veterans returning for the wars and the issues they face, like PTSD and the horrors they bring back with them. These subjects are very important to me, for I am a veteran and have many friends who suffer from PTSD and other issues. The sex trade issue because I find it to be one of the most detestable things I think of. I have an unhealthy, no kidding, hatred towards pimps and sex traffickers. I also almost went to prison while working on this project because I tried to do the right thing but went about it the wrong way.

The reason behind me sacrificing so much time and emotion is to save kids, women and vets. I believe I can actually make and impact on these issues by creating awareness and start an honest conversation about these serious topics. This is why the marketing and distribution of this film is imperative. That is the reason why I write about this so much, and this is where you can help. Spread the word about this project and repost these blog post on your social media platforms and send these posts to your friends.

Now my interest in the sex trade was sparked in 2004 when I heard  an interview done on NPR’s radio program “Fresh Air” about a expose  that the writer Peter Landsman called the “Girls Next Store” for the New York Times Magazine.    Of all the interviews I have ever heard on Fresh Air, this one has stuck with me. I also have been following the of Brook Bello who is an actress and founder of More to Life. 

I feel really passionate ending the sex trafficking in America, but it is going to take the citizens to demand the our government does all it can do to end it.  Now that being said, there is a lot being done, but we have a ways to go and we must keep pressure up and hold politicians accountable. I live  in a state, Florida, where state government has and is doing a lot, but there is more work to be done.

Why combat veteran issues? Well for one thing, I am a retired United States Paratrooper who served in the 82nd Airborne Division.  I was Airborne Infantry which means I was one of the most elite soldiers in the world, my job was to jump in to a country and lead men into combat. So, when it comes to those who did the fighting and killing I feel I have to tell their story. The war is not over for them, and they live with it everyday  for the rest of their lives. It is estimated that 22 veterans commit suicide everyday, and it is a issue we need to address. My film deals with the psychological issues that face our veterans.

I am a critic of the President, but there is a difference.

I am very critical of President Obama. He is the President of the United States and I am a progressive, so as you can see, I would have a lot to be critical of. He has made decisions, policies, actions and inactions, that I have disagreed with; however, there is a difference between me and conservatives, I am critical of him for reasons based in reality, an area that conservatives rarely travel too.  I am a progressive, not an old school, bleeding heart politically correct liberal, and I am also a realist.  I also do not believe in hypocrisy. If you follow conservatives you will know that, since President Obama became President, they have lived in a world of hypocrisy.  It is astounding how hypocritical the right has become, which I will write about in the future. And it is amusing to see how hypocritical my conservative friends are. Mind blowing.   But, sadly, so are liberals. Which to me is enraging since we are supposed to be the adults room amongst the feces flinging children.

So in this blog you will see criticisms of POTUS when I disagree and praise when do I agree.
