I know that bad political strategies in Iowa are making caucus goers angry and pushing people to vote for a certain candidate. As Senator Sessions has stated, please pick your candidate wisely. This is from a friend in Florida:

Before you vote or caucus, here’s an important fact you need to consider. When Rubio was running for the Senate, before he was well known, he did a Tea Party event in Lakeland, Florida. I met him face to face and explained that we were all angry because our representatives in DC were ignoring our calls and their staff was not taking down our comments, names and addresses. Rubio looked me in the eye and shook my hand and promised to ALWAYS listen even when we disagreed and to set up an office that heard our voices.

To me a promise is a promise especially when you shake on it. Rubio has forgotten his promise to me and the millions of people who phone banked, donated, and voted for him. When we call his office in DC, his staff NEVER takes our information on key issues like education, and they can’t even state his position on the bills. They get irritated that we are insisting – they act like we are a bother. There is obviously NO communication between Rubio and his staff and between his staff and constituents.

Go to Rubio’s presidential website and try to find a phone number to call the campaign so you can ask your question to a live person. You can’t because there is no phone number to the campaign. If you call his senate offices, they refuse to get you a number to the campaign because it breaks campaign rules. 

Is Rubio a man who wants to listen to WE THE PEOPLE? I think not – actions speak louder than words. If we are going to remove Obamacare, Common Core and other key legislation and replace it with who knows what, we NEED a president who listens to us so that we do not get put into a worse situation. It’s not enough to say I’ll take it away.  Will these candidates continue to allow the insurance companies to frontload $6000 to $12,000 deductibles that middle class Americans can’t afford? How will they get doctors who have sold their practices and now work for hospitals to become independent again so our healthcare decisions are made between a doctor and patient? Will they remove patient satisfaction surveys as a means of reimbursement – questions like has your pain been controlled with a required answer of always has resulted in patients being given IV dilaudid and other narcotics resulting in addiction and overuse to avoid getting in trouble and losing money from bad survey results. They say they will remove Common Core and put education to the state and local level but these school boards and state legislatures have invested millions of dollars and will continue these programs so how will they affect change or will we be stuck fighting at the local level with no change?

From my personal experiences, Rubio does NOT keep his word and will not listen, and therefore no one in my family can support or vote for him.

I can’t call Rubio’s campaign to get important answers, and Bush, Kasich, Carson, Cristie, and Huckabee do not have phone numbers either. Trump, Cruz, Paul, Santorum, Fiorina and even Gilmore in last place respect voters enough to have a phone number listed.

Your vote counts this time, please support a candidate who will hopefully listen and consider our lives as they take education, healthcare and other important issues in a different direction. We can’t end up with another president and congress who write thousand page bills and don’t listen to our concerns. We only win if our voices are heard and our family’s lives are improved.

ALERT ALERT

1 Billion Dollar Net Worth!!! Oberlin College Claims Poverty To Avoid Paying Punitive Damages To Gibson’s Bakery

Although IRS reports show the university is worth around $1 billion, Oberlin College still claimed poverty to avoid paying punitive damages to Gibson’s Bakery.

As Breitbart News reported this week, the far-left Oberlin College lost a defamation case filed by Gibson’s Bakery after a local jury found the university liable for falsely accusing the family bakery of racism.

The jury ordered Oberlin on Friday to pay Gibson’s $11.2 million in compensatory damages for defamation and intentional interference with a business.

Legal Insurrection reported on Thursday that “the jury awarded a total of $33 million in punitive damages, which will probably be reduced by the court to $22 million because of the state law cap at twice compensatory.”

Legal Insurrection has been following the case for two years — since the beginning — and reports that the school’s only defense against a sizable punitive award is to pretend it is poor, despite holding assets that amount to a billion — with a “b” — dollars and despite paying some of its staffers more than a half-million dollars a year:

Oberlin College was so hellbent on getting the message out that their cash liquidity was in such dire straits — as the eight-person jury was figuring out if they wish to add $22.4 million to the school’s legal verdict bill — that they brought out the school’s president, Carmen Twillie Ambar to the stand to tell that part the story.

“We’ve created deficits … and over the next ten years, if this continues, that is unsustainable and we will not exist,” Ambar told the jury. She even indicated the school’s grants — about $60 million a year from the school, and lots of students get those scholarships as only 10% of them pay the full $70,000 a year — were important to preserve as “the accessibility of education” was a key component of the school’s purpose.

However…

The college has more than $1 billion in funds and net assets according to the latest IRS 990 form, an endowment fund that had grown from $440 million to $887 million in the last 20 years, and because of its non-profit status, pays no taxes on any property it owns.

It also had 18 members of their administration making more than $100,00 a year. The president and chief financial officer of the school were both making more than $500,000 a year.

Grifters gonna grift…

The day after Donald Trump won the presidency, this nutball school apparently decided to take out its impotent woke-rage on this poor bakery, which has been part of the Oberlin community for more than a century.

It all started when three Oberlin students (who would later plead guilty in a plea deal) attempted to steal bottles of wine.

The proprietors caught the students and, while attempting to hold them until police arrived, were allegedly roughed up by the shoplifters. But because the students are black and the proprietors white — and with no respect for due process or facts — Oberlin staffers and students decided some vigilantism was in order and did everything in their considerable power to destroy this local bakery forever, to smite it off the map.

Classes were canceled so hundreds of students could protest in front of the small store while enjoying free food and drink, courtesy of the school. School staffers handed out fliers that basically described the family-owned bakery as the local branch of the KKK.

As a result, the bakery had to lay off almost all of its employees and barely avoided bankruptcy.

In the end, the three shoplifters said race had nothing to do with what happened.

For those of you interested in incurring $200,000 in debt before you even enter the workforce, it looks as though you can major in Mob Justice at Oberlin.
