Score cards with a player’s statistics have value

In sports there are often collectable cards that include a summary of statistics about the player’s career and history of achievements.

In the modern world of political campaigns memes have begun to fill in for sports cards as small memorable collections of data. Comparing voting records and other details can give voters some idea of the candidates values and consistency in upholding them during changing political climates.

Yesterday I spent some time thinking about values as I was using a website template that included examples of values that a political candidate might want to support — I kept one as it was written and modified a few others on the list. It doesn’t seem like plagiarism to use words from a template if it is a business product that I purchased rather than an individual’s copyrighted work.

Values were already on my mind after reading and watching a variety of sources discuss the war on ‘terrorism’ that has been terrorizing the Middle East for over a decade in the near past and since the late 1800s over the long term. For more information on the history dating back to the late 1800s, read the book “Against Our Better Judgement,” by Alison Weir for more information on “The hidden history of how the U.S. was used to create Israel,” (the subtitle of the book, 2014, more information and a link for the book is available on the website IfAmericaKnew.org). It is heart breaking and sickening to read for anyone who loves our country as much as I do, and the news about the more recent war is also heart breaking as well as gut wrenching – literally. TMI – I had an IBS flair up that night and had physical intestinal pain while watching one of the documentaries.

Videos for more information about some of our world’s true heros:

More on the background of the current U.S. war on ‘terror’ and funding rebel terrorist forces (or leaving supplies behind that arm rebel terrorist forces – first rule of vacating a war zone, blow up any remaining equipment and arms that might fall into the wrong hands – criminal negligence to just leave it behind because it’s cheaper than shipping it back home.) The order of all of these links is in the reverse of how I read or viewed them and they are copies of Tweets I posted to the social media site Twitter:

As a political candidate for President of the United States, 2016, I would like to state clearly that I am not for funding rebel terrorists; or for inadvertently leaving supplies behind were terrorists are likely to seize them; or for bombing hospitals or civilian neighborhoods.

Equality of women and men and nations that support equality of women and men is what I value. Just because a nation doesn’t support corporate profit as more important than most other things does not mean they are not supportive of equal rights for humans.

Sixteen year old girls are fighting on the front lines of Syria against ISIL/Daesh terrorists that have been inadvertently or purposely supported by the U.S.. The Assad regime has not been proven to be a brutal dictatorship although that is how mainstream media has been reporting and Iraq did not have weapons of mass destruction.

General Wesley Clark, a former Presidential candidate and NATO leader, reported that there was a U.S. goal to destroy seven countries in five years- we seem to have achieved it, whether we made the five year goal might be debatable but destruction of infrastructure and destruction of life and destabilization of surrounding countries and European countries due to the enormous influx of refugees also seems to have been achieved.Iu I’ll repeat the link in case you missed it:

My values include not funding terrorist organizations – to see more on what I value visit my 2016 U.S. Presidential campaign website: http://www.jenniferdepew.com/.

I value not terrorizing sixteen year old girls, or their families, no matter where they happen to have been born. Rebel mercenaries are rebel mercenaries, innocent citizens are innocent citizens even if they happen to live in rebel occupied territory or in a nation that is on a list of seven countries to be destroyed within five years.

In case you missed this one – it explains which Middle East nations and groups support equal rights and democratic elections more and who doesn’t:

My values, from my campaign/effective health care website:

  • Family first.
  • Protect the environment as it supports families and businesses.
  • Justice should prevail equally for all.
  • Helping others helps oneself.
  • Honesty is a virtue & truth matters.
  • Humility is a gift that heals by reducing stress levels.
  • Teamwork helps the whole team.

We as a nation need to recognize that blaming others for problems doesn’t help resolve the problems anymore than building a wall would keep out people with a plane ticket.

The Affordable Care Act deserves a Signature Strike not Yemen

Update, April 23/24, 2016: We’re still not the good guys – drone warfare is wrong and creates terror and probably increases the number of terrorists. I, as an independent candidate for President of the United States want to restate my previous opinion that I reject the U.S. drone warfare. In my opinion drone warfare is similar to the Blitzkreig bombing of Great Britain by the Nazi’s during WWII — except our drone bombs maybe leaving radioactive waste behind and some areas have had an increased rate of cancer and of infants born birth defects, as many as fifty percent of infants – so our use of drone warfare is even worse than the Blitzkreig – in my opinion, and possibly others:

For more current information on the affects of drone warfare on the targeted people and the U.S. military personnel involved in the operation see this article: [http://www.salon.com/2016/04/23/were_not_the_good_guys_partner/]

Saudi Arabia has been fighting Daesh terrorists in Syria and Yemen and are willing to help in Iraq if that nation is interested in assistance from Saudi Arabia fighting the terrorist organization. The nation of Saudi Arabia has already donated humanitarian aid that was disbursed via the U.N. and helped 1000 Iraqi orphans: “Saudi Arabia ready to help Iraq fight Daesh,” Sunday, April 24, 2016: [http://www.arabnews.com/saudi-arabia/news/914876]

The Affordable Care Act may seem like an unlikely target for me to have wanted to strike out with a ‘Signature Strike’ even figuratively, because it did help many Americans get insurance, but it has also caused prescription drug prices to increase and increased health care costs for many Americans. It has been hard on medical staff while increasing profit for insurance and prescription companies. It was a cumbersome act, nearly 11,000 pages long, with sections that may have been written by medical and prescription industry lobbyists – for all any of the legislators knew when they were asked to sign it into law.

~~~a post I wrote May 17, 2012:

I would feel better about voting for President Obama again if he had chosen different advice for the Affordable Care Act. It supports pharmaceutical profit and takes away our right to negotiate for cheaper drug prices. It mandates that a very specific product must be purchased if you are born an American citizen.

For example dietitians aren’t approved to provide weight loss counseling but Medicare will pay for a physician to do so. The number of gastric bypass surgeries may increase as a result. Dietitian’s services are approved once a patient has had a gastric bypass. Choosing good advice is essential when using the common sense and good advice plan.Car insurance is only mandated if you buy a car and the products (auto mechanic services) generally are effective. Health insurance is buying a product that may not be equally effective, which we would see if we were to honestly assess the quality of life and health outcomes of the patients using American health care. We are doing incredible life saving acute care types of things in medicine but the basic “what a body is built from” is being ignored. We are not built out of maintenance medications.

Too frequently the health care goal is to stabilize the chronically ill patient. Tackling underlying problems and restoring function is not even considered as a possibility for many disease/syndromes. “We don’t know what is wrong with you or how to fix you but here is a maintenance medication,” is a pervasive attitude that tends to add to the body’s burden of ill health. Some textbooks for graduate school classes are describing “autoimmune” disease as a normal part of aging. If it were a normal part of aging then why isn’t as prevalent in every nation and why do infants and children develop autoimmune conditions?

By teaching our future physicians that chronic ill health is a normal part of aging then we are teaching them to stop looking for ways to restore good health. All they have to do is maintain the bad, however, the bad tends to get worse under that approach.

A common sense and listen to good advice approach to governing requires good advice.

And the drone bombs are very ineffective as snipers. We are bombing innocent civilians – we Americans are bombing innocent civilians in an attempt to possibly kill a ‘terrorist’.

The signature strikes have increased over the last month.

“…at least 747 people have been killed in strikes on Yemen since 2001. Out of these, 105 are known to have been civilians, and 24 of them children.”

We don’t have gas chambers yet but we are bombing innocent civilians in Yemen, They have a 53% unemployment rate. [http://www.wsws.org/articles/2012/may2012/yeme-m17.shtml]

Yemen also has oil, what a surprise, and their national oil production has dropped since 2004.

Excerpt: Corruption and bad management of national resources have been widespread at all public offices in Yemen, especially the energy sector. Experts said senior officials within the former regime had shares in oil companies operating in the country and a large part of oil revenues.

“If there is a good management of the national sources, the country will increase production, not deplete the reserves,” said the PEPA official.

He pointed out that “one of the big problems of this sector is that the Yemeni authorities totally rely on foreign investors to study and explore Yemeni areas; the point is that there is no local supervision or participation in such operations.”

At the meantime, the security situation remains the biggest concern affecting investments here amid persistent attacks on pipelines and facilities by tribesmen and militants.

We are providing military protection for oil companies on foreign soil. The people of Yemen deserve their own oil reserves not drone bombs and US military police.
