According to the Department of Homeland Security, Secret Service Director Julia Pierson Has Resigned.
I watched the congressional hearing on capital hill on c-span yesterday as they ranted and criticized Julia Pierson. It was brutal to watch, but I had a hard time disagreeing with any the members of congress comments. How was it event remotely possible for someone to get even to the door with any security stopping him? No Dog or armed security was even seen on the front lawn. This
boggles my mind! This is the Secret Service for crying out loud! Where are they???
On September 19, 2014, there was a security breach by Omar Gonzalez. Gonzalez got over the fence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and went through open door into the White House, knocking over a service agent, before being tackled and brought down.
What also surprised me was the fact that both Republican and Democrats were actually on the same page with there criticism. It is a rare moment to see both parties on the same page. At least, now I know it’s possible!
As I was watching this hearing, other security breaches were talked about. Then today, as I was watching CNN, an Ex- Secret Service Agent expressed his surprise as well, saying” there are at least 50 different sets of SECURITY eye balls watching that front lawn and he was in shock with what he witnessed.
Personally, I want to see Dogs and Armed Security officers Overwhelm ANY intruder at the White House in seconds, not minutes!!!
– Am I surprised Secret Service Director Julia Pierson resigned? No.
– Do I think the White and our country is better off with her resignation? Yes.
It’s time for someone else to get this branch back on track.
I do not usually comment on things outside of Las Vegas, but this week there has been a few things on a national level that I felt the need to comment on.
Feel free to leave a comment.
Have a Good Day!
It is said that that babies are the only one that likes change…
This past year it has become apparent that the music scene in Las Vegas has changed. Two years ago you see billboards on Rt 15 and 95 of famous musicians listed with their upcoming concert dates on the strip. Now you see giant billboards with DJ’s, yes, Disc Jockeys! FAMOUS DJ’s!
When I was growing up, “ Wolf Man Jack” was the famous DJ back in my day. Now Las Vegas has over dozen famous DJ’s on any given week.
What does that mean to the local musicians? It means less performance work. It means if musicians do not change with the times, their music career may just turn into a hobby.
Now lets talk technology for a moment. When the personal computer hit the market 30 years ago, it seemed straight forward. You plug it in, open a word doc and start typing. This was the beginning of the end for the typewriter.
Now, with the latest technology, we have so many things that are concerning; the hard drive, thumb drive, ram, external CD drive, the cloud, wireless keyboards, virtual hosting, wifi, backup, syncing with iTunes, photo sharing, photo streaming, drop box, complicated passwords, Not to mention “where is the start button”, ETC…
This morning I tuned into CNN to catch the coverage of congress questioning Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius about the challenges with the Affordable Care Act rollout. AKA as “Obamacare”.
It was not just a QUESTIONING type of Meeting.The republicans beat the CRAP out Sebelius! It was disgusting to watch. It was painful hear.
It’s one thing to have a professional conversation between adults in order to discuss whatever challenges of the day happen to be. It’s quite another to BULLY, HUMILIATE, and BEATUP a person. Secretary Sebelius acknowleged and has taken responsibility for the errors and mistakes of this Obamacare rollout.
It’s no secret that the Obamacare rollout October 1, 2013 has been a mess.There is plenty of blame to go round. Maybe we will get the full story sometime, but right now we need the website corrected. However, before congress Sebelius did apologize and took responsibility for all the problems with the Affordable Health Care website.
When there is a problem one can be a help or a hinderance…
It’s very clear the Republicans are only interested in being a hinderance. During the hearing the Republicans were just down right rude and unprofessional during this meeting.
Sebelius is tough as nails.
The Republicans Party have Shutdown the United States Government! This is DISGUSTING!
It is my understanding this government shutdown is costing about 1 billion dollars a day. Yes, a billion dollars! This shutdown is effecting EVERYONE in one way or another.
Why Was The Government Shutdown?
A small group of Republicans within the party itself are still trying to defund and get rid of Obamacare. Thus, they are holding everyone else in congress hostage, at One BILLION Dollars a day!
Yesterday I heard on CNN the following dialog between Rand Paul and Mitch McConnell Discussing Shutdown. It’s evident they did not think there microphone was still active and hot.
“I just did CNN and I just go over and over again ‘We’re willing to compromise. We’re willing to negotiate.’ I think, I don’t think they poll tested we won’t negotiate. I think it’s awful for them to say that over and over again.
Robby LeBlanc here in For Robby Rants! I usually save this section and write about things that are bugging me in some way..This will touch your heart. My father sent this to me…
Our 14-year-old dog Abbey died last month.
The day after she passed away my 4-year-old daughter Meredith was crying and talking about how much she missed Abbey. She asked if we could write a letter to God so that when Abbey got to heaven, God would recognize her.I told her that I thought we could so, and she dictated these words:
Will you please take care of my dog? She died yesterday and is with you in heaven. I miss her very much. I ‘m happy that you let me have her as my dog even though she got sick.
I hope you will play with her. She likes to swim and play with balls. I am sending a picture of her so when you see her you will know that she is my dog. I really miss her.
We put the letter in an envelope with a picture of Abbey & Meredith , addressed it to God/Heaven.
