Michael Moore Is An Idiot.......



"Calm down white people and put away your guns"    He is the epitome of a racist.  He is dividing the country and making a lot of money doing it.  I was going to do a nice post about what a doushebag he is, but he is not worth my time or energy. Pathetic, ignorant, despicable, evil...choose whichever you would like they all apply.  He kind of makes it easy on us though....... a total loser!!

Ban Everything?



We have complex issues in this country. I have listened to the calls for banning private ownership of all guns. They make a compelling argument. The 2nd Amendment contains the word "militia". Therefore, unless you belong to a militia, you should not have a gun. I see their point, but let's not stop there. As I said, these are complex issues. Let's look at what else should be banned, restricted, or changed:


1- Free Speech. Children have died because of cult leaders, religious zealots, and political fringe groups. Music and television is too violent. Ban the 1st Amendment. The Press must be certified and licensed by the state, and they will give your opinions to you. Religions must be legally recognized and certified by the state. The Constitution says we can't sponsor any religion, but says nothing about us banning them. The freedom to assemble is limited to small groups in private dwellings, except for once a year to celebrate Obama's Birthday.
2- 2nd Amendment.  Banned as previously stated. Trained and uniformed government employees must handle all self defense issues.
3- Fire extinguishers. are hereby banned for private ownership. You are not certified by the state to fight fires. Improperly extinguished flames can cause harm to your neighbor's person and property. Trained government employees will be solely responsible for all combustion events. You have no Constitutional right to a house, let alone a house that is not on fire.
4- All private stockpiles of food. We have children starving, while others are obese. Obviously you people can not handle feeding yourselves or your dependents. You may keep only FDA approved bottled water and 3 days supply of crackers on hand(2 crackers per person per day). You have no Constitutional right to food. Government certified nutritionists will see you are fed.
5- Empty your medicine cabinets. Children can overdose on OTC medications. Only licensed doctors may prescribe medication, and only licensed pharmacists may dispense them. The person the prescription is written to faces harsh penalties if they fall into anyone else's hands. We don't care what you do with them, but we suggest storing them in all of those recently emptied gun safes. You have no Constitutional right to medicine, except leeches, which were used at the time the Constitution was written.
6- Education. We have high unemployment. And we have people who are just plain unemployable. Obviously, you have been given way too much freedom to seek your own paths in life. Yes, you have a right to public education. But the rights of the community as a whole trump your individual rights. We will decide based on early aptitude testing what your future employment options are, and educate you accordingly. The unemployable will be sent to w̶o̶r̶k̶ ̶c̶a̶m̶p̶s̶ vocational training facilities for reeducation and reintroduction into productive society.


Immediately after these reforms are implemented, a Federal Task Force on Private Ownership will be formed, with the sole goal of creating an Impact Study of Private Ownership of Businesses and Personal Incomes, and how they affect society as a whole. No taxes will be raised during this period of study. All additional costs will be borrowed and paid for somewhere down the line. It may even be after you're deceased, in which case, it's FREE!!!!


And all of this safety and security can be yours, for the low low price of your freedom.

Disclaimer: This is not a call to grab your tin foil hats. Merely a way to point out how ridiculous gun bans are. I hope it made you laugh and think. And if you support gun bans, and do not find this funny, I assure you we're laughing AT YOU!

Jane Fonda As Nancy Reagan....


The Irony of a pathetic, lying, traitor playing Nancy Reagan, one of the most classy, elegant and likable First Ladies we've ever had is just wrong on so many different levels.  Enough said!

Gun Control, Sandy Hook Elementary & Mental Illness

As Funerals get planned and the news begins to subside, we are left with the aftermath of the Sandy Hook tragedy.  Heroic actions are now coming out about teachers and staff that gave their lives for the children.  As with all tragedies it brings out the very best and worst in people.  Mothers and fathers hugged their children a little harder, people came together to comfort each other and to provide any help they can.  Instead of just names and ages these children became real as we saw pictures of them, smiles so wide and of joy that only could come from children.

Then the who and why began to emerge and things became ugly.  Gun control advocates took this as their opportunity to politicize and set into action a ban on assault rifles and those in favor of our 2nd Amendment to bear arms wondered if one of the staff in the school had a gun, would the outcome be any different.  I actually think the debates are a good thing right now.  Hopefully we can find some middle ground that will actually make a difference instead of the all or nothing arguments that are becoming more and more prominent in society.

This is not a tragedy about evil vs. good.  It's so much more than owning or not owning a gun.  It is about the system that let everyone down.  A culture that is growing more and more violent and people that are becoming immune to death.  Not in the sense that people don't care if someone gets killed but they get desensitized by it.  It's everywhere you look.  On all the news channels and more and more in the spotlight by celebrities and athletes.

God is slowly but surely getting kicked out of our lives.  No religion is allowed in schools or public buildings.  We can't even celebrated Christmas because " Oh My!" we might just offend someone.  We seem to hate and judge our neighbors instead of loving them.  This country is becoming more and more divided. (I won't go into who I think is responsible, that is a whole other blog)

Finally we come to the main reason, that in my humble opinion contributed the most in these killings.  Mental illness.  This is a subject that gets my emotions rumbling because for over 16 years, doctors thought I suffered from anxiety.  I was finally diagnosed with Dysautonomia and could finally put the erroneous conclusions from hundreds of doctors.  I have had my share of lousy doctors so I am a little jaded in that department.  I have been on just about every medication you can think of and I had my share of side effects that landed me in the hospital.  Although I don't recall most of it, when getting weaned of a medication called Effexor I became suicidal.  Yep, plain old me became a scary replica of myself.  I was watched at all times but if I had not had the constant supervision and support, I honestly can't tell you what would have happened.  We are discussing a very sick individual that was facing a life of mental hospitals.  I can imagine what that feels like and until you can, you have no idea what was going through my mind.  I've never put this out in the open because it is something that is very traumatic to me and brings back bad memories.  I got to a place where no one could figure out what to do with me, doctors had given up and run out of medications.   To complicate matters, I was pregnant with Anthony.  During one of my many trips to the hospital, a doctor suggested signing myself into a Mental Hospital. He said I could sign out anytime and there would be a doctor keeping a close eye on me.  Since I had a horrible case of morning sickness and had lost a lot of weight, they could treat that too.  There would be counseling and constant activities to help me. It was the worst decision I have ever made in my life.  To make an already long story short, they kept me tied to a bed in a monitored room and gave me psycho medications that indeed make me psycho. I wanted to crawl out of my skin and it made me very restless. (a lovely side effect of the meds)   It was the worst kind of hell, it was pure torture.  The one consolation for me was that I was told since I voluntary signed myself in, I could simply sign myself out.  Wrong, I had to put in a request and wait 48 hours.  Suffice it to say, I have never quite been able to put that behind me.  If I faced a life in a Mental Hospital, I am not sure what I would do, but for someone that was already struggling with a life of Aspergers, I imagine it would be unbearable.  There will never be one single reason for Sandy Hook tragedy but only by open communication can we try our damnedest to make sure that it doesn't happen again.

Tragedy at Sandy Hook

This is in Israel where a teacher is armed, ready to protect the children under her care.  Is this where we are headed.  Should it?

My heart is breaking right now for the families in Connecticut who lost their children to a massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The horrific nature of this slaughter was just too much for anyone for anyone to comprehend.   The questions have already begun.  Why?  What if guns were banned.  What if someone at the school had a gun on them? Could they have stopped him. Was he on medication? What could have prevented this. Where was God?  How could He let this happen?

Nothing could have prevented this.  Are there ways to make schools a safer haven for children?  Yes, and I am sure these will be tossed around in the days following this tragedy.  This is not the first time this has happened and unfortunately will not be the last.  Society has become a very jaded place where everyone is out for themselves.  They see guns on movies and video games and it desensitizes them toward death.   This is a culture of violence. These type of killings are becoming more and more common and we need to ask ourselves why.  Something in this country is damaged badly and until we recognize and address it, this will continue.  The problem is no one knows that what "it" is.  It is different in every situation, and it is imposible to point the finger at just one thing.  Maybe we need to start looking around us and thinking about others first.

I came acroos this post and it said so much of what I am feeling..... click here to read full article.


[ We do not, and cannot possibly, control all the actions of every other person on the planet. The government can't do it. The churches can't do it. The schools can't do it. The neighbors can't do it. We can love one another and look out for one another and pass laws to protect one another to the utmost best of our ability, but in the end, we are free to chose our own actions. That is both our greatest gift and curse.
We had a story last month about a fight in a high school parking lot that reportedly involved somebody brandishing a gun. Shortly after it ran, I had a couple of calls from parents furious that other schools hadn't been locked down while police searched for the suspect. (Story here:http://democratherald.com/news/local/sahs-fight-lockdown-raises-questions/article_e651765a-3ab0-11e2-823d-001a4bcf887a.html). During a conversation with one of the callers, she said something to the effect of, "So anybody can just pull into a school parking lot and start a fight? Isn't that kind of scary?"
Well ... yes, I told her. But it's a parking lot. What, exactly, is the alternative? Barbed wire? Guard towers? How do we secure the parking lot at the mall, or the gas station, or even the police department?
I won't quarrel with the argument that our society doesn't place enough emphasis on mental health. But reality is, you cannot eliminate crazy. Eliminating weapons won't end society's pain. Seven people died from ingesting potassium cyanide in pain-reliever capsules back in 1982. Farming fertilizer helped kill 168 people in Oklahoma City in 1995. We discovered in 2001 that a determined terrorist can take down a building with a jet plane.
I saw a post after the Clackamas shooting complaining about the media effort to find out about the shooter. The poster argued this guy should die a nobody, and that nothing good could come of the attention.
I disagree. I think it's human to want to know why, to see if there were any warning signs, to use the knowledge to be better prepared for the future. We can't do that without knowing more.
But the important thing to recognize, along with that investigation, is that while there may be explanations, there will never be - can never be - a 100 percent foolproof solution to every situation, every time.
Not while we live with other people. Not without compromising that very essence of our humanity: free will.
Let's say you found some agitated loner who exhibits signs of potential violence. Let's say you were in the position to extend all the help you can to him: friendship, community support, medication if necessary, the removal of all obvious access to something he could use to hurt himself or someone else.
But in the end, what do you really do to ensure he will never be a danger? Lock him up? Where? For how long? Who's responsible? Who pays? What can he have and not have while he's there? 
And here's the real question: What do you do to stop the people-turned-monsters who never indicated, until they blew, that they might have been agitated loners at all?  
We can avoid air travel. We can stay out of movie theaters. We can take our kids out of school. We can make it a point to never shop at a mall again.
We also can change our names and hole up in a bunker and live off the land until we die.
And realistically, that's what it would take to be absolutely and completely and positively sure that we would be safe from random, senseless acts of violence.]

My thoughts and prayers go out to all those involved in this tragedy.  No words I can offer at this moment will lesson the heartbreak that so many are feeling.  I ask the Lord to wrap his hands around those who are hurting and grieving and give them the strength to get through the upcoming days and weeks ahead of them.  God bless this country.

Walk On Eggshells...I Think Not!



Let me make sure I get this straight.  Our American men and women that are giving their time, effort, sweat, tears and sometimes the ultimate price for Afghanistan need to walk on eggshells because they might offend someone.  I think our military needs to tell whoever made this new handbook, that they can kiss their American asses!!   

A proposed new handbook for Americans serving in Afghanistan warns them not to speak ill about the Taliban, advocate women’s rights or criticize pedophilia, and the general in charge is not happy with it.
The draft of the newest Army handbook seems to suggest that ignorance of Afghan culture is to blame for deadly attacks by Afghan soldiers against the coalition forces, according to The Wall Street Journal, which got a peek at the 75-page document. But its message of walking on eggshells around the locals is not going over well with U.S. Marine Gen. John Allen, the top military commander in Afghanistan.
"Gen. Allen did not author, nor does he intend to provide, a foreword," said Col. Tom Collins, a spokesman for the U.S.-led coalition in Afghanistan. "He does not approve of its contents."
More than three dozen attacks by Afghan soldiers have claimed the lives of some 63 members of the U.S.-led coalition this year. The insider attacks could jeopardize plans to transfer full security control to Afghan forces in 2014.
"He does not approve of its contents."
- Col. Tom Collins, a spokesman for U.S. Marine Gen. John Allen
But a claim by their own government that they’re to blame is not likely to buoy the spirits of Americans risking their lives to serve.
"Many of the confrontations occur because of [coalition] ignorance of, or lack of empathy for, Muslim and/or Afghan cultural norms, resulting in a violent reaction from the [Afghan security force] member," the Journal quotes the draft handbook as saying.
The version reviewed by the Journal is still subject to revisions,  Lt. Gen. David Perkins, commander of the Army's Combined Arms Center at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., told the Journal.
The study, based on interviews with 600 members of the Afghan security forces and 200 American soldiers, painted a grim portrait of opposing cultures with simmering disdain for their counterparts.
The draft handbook includes a summary stating that some U.S. soldiers consider Afghan forces to be “basically stupid” thieves, "gutless in combat," "profoundly dishonest" and engaged in "treasonous collusion and alliances with enemy forces."
The draft handbook offers a list of "taboo conversation topics" that soldiers should avoid, including "making derogatory comments about the Taliban," "advocating women's rights," "any criticism of pedophilia," "directing any criticism toward Afghans," "mentioning homosexuality and homosexual conduct" or "anything related to Islam," according to the Journal.

Stress Relief..... A Funny!

 
 
The Democrat Party today announced that it is changing its symbol from the Donkey to a Condom because it more accurately reflects the Party's political stance. A condom allows for inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects a bunch of dicks, and gives you a sense of security while you're actually being screwed.
Damn, it just doesn't get more accurate than that!

1,000,000....



A million dollars. When I think of that number, so many things come to mind; Paying off and saving my home or selling my house and finally moving down south. College tuition for my kids, A car that is reliable and not needing repair. Surgery my husband desperately needs. The government throws this number around like it is chump change. They give it to other countries when the people here are in desperate need.

 Obama thinks nothing about spending almost 4 million for a Hawaii vacation or for the presidential inauguration. I have major issues with celebrities. Sean Penn, Susan Sarandon, Bruce Springsteen, Ashley Judd, Madonna, just to name a few. They seem to have all these liberal views about everyone being equal, the redistribution of wealth. Yet they live in million dollar mansions, have exotic cars, and have more money that they know what to do with. I would like for them to spend a week in my shoes. They have absolutely no idea of the reality of living in the real world. Try living paycheck to paycheck. Try putting off doctor's appointments, medical procedures, surgeries because you cannot afford insurance or are between jobs.

 Every time I see a million dollars thrown around like candy it makes me physically sick. All I can think about was how much different my life would be. How much different my kids lives could be. There is such a huge difference between the have's and the have's not's, that I don't think they can truly understand what the middle class goes through. So please either put up or shut up. Give your millions to the middle class if you feel so strongly that we all should be on the same fiscal level.

 I have trouble with the fact that someone who throws a ball, makes more than the soldier that fights for his freedom to do so. When we look up to someone that has the ability to throw a curve ball, as a role model, then we have a major problem, but then I am not telling you anything that you don't already know.

Racist Much?

Free Healthcare Isn't Very......FREE!





$63.00 You heard right folks....  Obamacare is going to cost an additional $63.00.  What does that mean?  ....higher insurance premiums, loss of jobs, a down hill spiral.  This is what you voted for, hope you are satisfied!!

Dysautonomia 1, Jennifer 0



I didn't fill in a title right away because I am not sure where I am heading with this post.  I've always tried to have a half full perspective on things.  Anytime I feel disheartened, I always think to myself "It could be worse."  It can, but tonight those words just aren't soothing me the way they always have.  I feel discouraged in a way that I can't quite talk myself out of.

I feel defeated.  I feel like I have been trampled on without anyone even noticing me lying flattened on the ground.  My strength has been pushed to the limit both physically and emotionally.  Although I now have a name for the hell this disorder has caused me for over 17 years, it doesn't really matter.  There is no cure.  There are medicines that control your symptoms.  I live with the limitations as a constant reminder that I am sick and as hard as I try to not let it define who I am, I can only do so much.

I really hate it when people ask me how I feel because all I really want to do is scream at them and say "NO!  I am not okay.  I am not getting by.  I am not hanging in there."  I have said all these so many different times to count because this is what people want to hear.  They can't handle the truth... I can picture Jack Nicholson saying it that way too.  I don't mean this in a demeaning way but unless you live it, or live with someone that suffers, you can not possibly understand the toll it takes on your body and soul.  I'm glad, because I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy.

Do you really want to know how I am doing?

I hate waking up in the morning (actually its more afternoon because of the insomnia).  I know I should be thankful that I woke up because I know there are people out there that have to live with the fact that a loved one didn't.

The idea of getting dressed fills me with dread.  Not only because trying to find something to fit this bloated, sick body of mine is a huge undertaking, but the effort it takes to "get dressed" leaves me feeling like I've run the Boston marathon.  Forget looking in a mirror, it has become my worst enemy.  Taking a simple shower is an ordeal.

I am so sick of doctors and medications and yet I know I should be thankful that I am in a country where I have access to them. At least for the moment anyway, until Obama gets though with hijacking the healthcare system.  You know I had to get political somewhere in here.  :)

I used to love Christmas shopping or for that matter anything with my mom.  We would share a day when we could just talk and laugh, and we would have fun no matter where we went or what we did.  I did a little Christmas shopping the other day and thank goodness that Walmart has those carts because there is no way I could have lasted 5 minutes without one.  Unfortunately, not a whole lot of stores are equipped with them.  After one store I am ready to call it a night.  I feel that loss deeply.

I think the biggest loss at the moment is my family.  We go through the motions but I can't help but feel that I am a burden.  I have always been active in my kids lives.  There wasn't an activity I would miss, whether it be soccer, awards, plays, concerts, etc.  I was PTA VP and I loved it.  Everything has changed.  I am a shell of the person I used to be.  I cannot just go out on a whim. I cannot stand for any length of time.  If I am sitting, when I go to stand, I get lightheaded.  I can't drive, or go anywhere by myself.  I never realized that grocery shopping, and errands would become a luxury, or  I would miss the fact that I could just run the boys to the mall, or a game.

  I love my husband with all my heart but I know this has taken a toll on him too. He runs himself ragged trying to be a father, a husband, caregiver, income supplier and I see how hard it is.  He would never admit it, but I can't help but think that a day comes that he will resent me for all of the things that we missed out on not only as a couple but a family.

I hate the fact people stare at me and wonder if I am pregnant or just fat.  It is humiliating and beyond frustration when I barely eat anything and yet look and feel like an elephant.  I get angry that I am on this hideous diet where I can eat chicken, rice, potatoes, and strawberries. (There are a few other things I can have but have to be gluten, high fructose, and dairy free)  I want to be able to eat birthday cake, a big cheesy slice of pizza or a PB&J sandwich.

I hate that I get out of breath from simply walking a few feet.  I hate the limitations holding me back from the simple things in life.   I think what I have the hardest thing accepting is when I see other people complaining about things that I would give my right hand to be able to do.  I feel myself getting more jaded and bitter the longer I suffer.  Deep down I know I am blessed.  I have an amazing family, a roof over my head, (although not for long, thanks again Obama) enough food to nourish my body (although it's yucky) and a personal relationship with my Lord.  I guess sometimes I just need to have a little pity party before I have to put on my big girl panties and suck it up.  Appreciate what I have and stop complaining about what I don't.  Although I must admit that is a whole lot easier said then done.  I don't know if anyone will actually read this whole thing, but if you do happen to make it down here, thank you for listening!!

KKK aka NRA



KKK. Holocaust. Racism. Hitler.  These words are thrown around as a comparison to people and events that are happening in today's society.  All these words have an impact all by themselves but are becoming trivial by people that use these words so loosely.

Jason Whitlock compared the NRA to the KKK.   This is insulting and offensive and frankly it pisses me off.  How dare this sanctimonious ass compare law abiding citizens that have met the requirements of the NRA to own a gun that is supported by the United States Constitution.  Jason, have you heard of the 2nd Amendment?  I abhor the KKK and what they stand for.  You do everyone that is in or supports the NRA a grave injustice.  Sir, you are a racist, ignorant man, and you should think twice about spouting off things that you have no business doing.



 Hitler was a monster.  He was evil personified.  As much as we may dislike (being very generous here) politicians, to compare them to Hitler is undignified.  I've seen many signs comparing both Bush and Obama to him.  If you think that our politicians resemble a man that was capable of atrocious, heinous acts of mass murder then you really need to go back and do some research.

Tragedy Turned Into Political Point

Bob Costas is not only an idiot, but pathetic.  I'm sure you have all heard the story about the murder suicide of Jovan Belcher from the Kansas City Chiefs.  You'd literally have to be in a bubble considering the coverage this is getting.  Sometimes that bubble looks very inviting considering the idiocy of some people.  Besides the fact that the 2nd Amendment gives us the right to bear arms, this debate rages on.  Guns do not kill people, people kill people.  The fact that he owned a gun is a non-issue.

Lets suppose that he didn't own a gun.  Think of all the devices that he had at his disposal, if you will.  His fist, which would have taken a much longer time and would have hurt a lot worse. A knife unless directly to the heart would have taken numerous times.  Not so long ago someone was arrested for beating his wife with a baseball bat, that would not have been pleasant either.    The point that I am slowly getting at is this would have happened no matter what was in his hand, his intention was murder and would have happened regardless of the weapon.

If we followed Costas' argument, we would have to assume that cigarettes, alcohol, medication, junk food, knives, baseball bats, curtain rods, rope, pillows...I could go on but hopefully if you have the slightest bit of common sense you know where I am going with this.   There are many ways to kill a person if that is what is in someone's heart and mind.

Murderer's, thieves, drug dealers, etc.. will get their hands on guns one way or another, mostly illegal.  So you would leave the average American with no way to defend himself if he was threatened.  I have no problem with restrictions that make owning a gun safer but to take away the right of a nation because a person was killed by a gun is ludicrous.  That Bob Costas takes this tragedy to make a political point is down right low, but by no means, a surprise.

Obama's Vacation in Hawaii.....

http://chicksontheright.com/categories/the-makeover-and-or-miscellaneous/item/23470-ah-yes-its-good-to-be-the-king

I think this post says it all, but I will include my reply also.....

While I scrimp and save to give my kids somewhat of a Christmas, this _______________ (I will let you fill in the blank, be creative) will be vacationing in Hawaii for 3 weeks. Well, aint he special. Do you know what the victims of Sandy could do with that money? What about the thousands getting laid of because of Obamacare? What about the middle class that are working their asses off to try and keep their homes (some failing miserably like us) that haven't had a vacation in years because it wasn't in our budget. Oh that's right, you don't know what a budget is. Well, a budget is trying to live within your means. Providing shelter, food, safety, and the necessities. Putting your needs before your wants but Mr. Obama, you wouldn't know that. Have a wonderful time in Hawaii, while we scrape dinners together so we will be able to pay our electric bill. Don't worry about us, that aren't living on the governments dime by getting food stamps. The hypocrisy knows no end. I honestly don't know how you can sleep at night. Don't worry Obama, we will get through it, because we are fighters and do not know the words "giving up." Just please do not act concerned when you come to the Jersey shore/NY and give comfort to those that have lost everything. I'm not sure I could take it......

Can't fix Stupid....

I feel awful, so this post is not going to be rainbows and unicorns.  I am so unbelievably sick of Obama and his administrations and we haven't even made it into the new year yet.  Lets start with the fiscal cliff that we are heading toward.  This bi-partisan crap that Obama spoke of is non-existent, and he we all know that compromise isn't in his vocabulary.

While Egypt is in a fight against it's "dictator" (sorry I call a spade a spade) Obama is down in Mexico.  Obama helped put this Muslim Brotherhood (dictator) in office and is now invisible.  Where is his outrage?  Why are we still funding Egypt?

They cried wolf too many times and I could careless if you think I am racist.  There are many racists out there and they have destroyed any credibility the word has.  Now Peter is going to pay the price and I could care less.

Sandra Rice...yeah she is either extremely incompetent or a liar.  Either way I don't want someone that goes on TV with "talking points" and doesn't look into the truth of the matter.  Obama made her his scapegoat and now he is trying to make it up to her.  Sorry, we are not that gullible or naive.

Why on God's beautiful green earth would an atheist have a problem with a Christmas tree.  I actually have no problem with someone wishing me happy holidays.  Jewish and Christians each celebrate their own holidays this time of year. I guess I should mention the newly made up
"Kwanza."   I am sorry that is not a religious holiday.  Ya know, if anything is considered racist it is that "holiday."  An African American celebration....yep I would most definitely call that racist.  Oh that is right, black people can't be racist.  Okay let me break this down so even an idiot can get this....

Why would you call a Christmas Tree a holiday tree?  Does any other religion also use trees to celebrate?  No, so why would you call it anything but a Christmas tree?  If you want to get technical, Christmas trees are the secular celebration of Christmas, not religious.  Jews use a menorah to celebrate (Hanukkah).  Do they call it a holiday candle stand.  Of course not.... People can you not see the idiocy of this?  If you can't then I am sorry for the loss of your intelligence, wherever you may have lost it.

Veterans Day...

First & foremost I would personally like to thank all those who gave their service to the United States of America.  I hope that this Veteran's Day will not be the last time I am able to say that.  I have always been proud of this country.  I was in awe of the way the country stood together after 9-11.  On the anniversary of 9/11,  11 years later, we have yet another attack on the United States of America in Benghazi, it matters not whose soil it occurred on, but this time it was different.  This time Obama was president.  He was too busy partying it up with celebrities and campaigning to run the country.  He blamed it on a video and continued to blame it on a video for the weeks after.  Even went so far as to have the man arrested for airing the video although it was for a parole violation.  In a speech to the United Nations, he again blamed the deaths of 4 Americans on the reaction to a video against Muslims.  

The more information that comes to light shows us a very different picture and it's not pretty.  They sent numerous requests for more support which were ignored or denied.  Not only were these deaths preventable, 2 navy seals were told to stand off and for hours and hours thinking help was on the way fought off terrorists till they finally were killed.  Not only did the media not cover this, they did not ask the questions that needed to be asked.  Obama tried covering this up and is now finally coming out.  I will not rest until someone is help accountable for there four innocent deaths.  Now we learn that Secretary of State Hilary Clinton and CIA Director Gen. David Petraeus , are "choosing not to testify."  This screams cover up and this time Obama isn't going to be able to talk his way out of it.

Our Veterans have fought and died for the freedoms that we so often take for granted.  I pray that it was not all in vain.  Little by little, our freedoms are getting taken away and it's out of our hands by this farce of an election. (See previous posts for more info)

I sit here, sad, the United States of America that our Veterans have given their service too is changing to a Socialist Nation.  All I can say is do not blame me.

RIP America (1776-2012)

I am hearing the Republicans talk about what went wrong and what they did or didn't do, what they should have done.  I'm not sure if Romney or any Republican for that matter could have won this election.  The reasons aren't pretty but hey, I was never one to beat around the bush.

Women - Obama basically said that if they voted for Romney they would lose all their rights. They believed his lies. They voted out of ignorance and fear.  OMGosh, they might have to pay for their own birth control, the horror!!!!

Latinos - Ummm, this one is kinda obvious but only needs 2 words......illegal immigration.  Yes, they like the fact that Obama is welcoming them with open arms.

Blacks - Yes, people still are voting for his race. It needed to be said, so suck it up.  

Voter fraud - It happened....  Between intimidation tactics (Black Panthers, Detroit, etc) or voting machines that somehow just changed the vote from Romney to Obama. How much it impacted the election, we will never know.

Media - It's no secret that Obama has the media in his back pocket.  It remind me too much of socialist countries where government dictates what is seen and what is not.  If you only show voters the "good" Obama, unless they research to find the truth, that is exactly what they will see.

Military - It is no accident that thousands of military never received their absentee ballots.

There is not much more to say.  These people are responsible for the future of this country.  They have helped to destroy this country and nothing they do will wash the guilt away from them. 

RIP
America

Success...Wrong?

As I read a lot of these posts and comment lately I can't get over the jealousy over success.  When did this become a bad thing?  When did working your butt off day and night to make your business succeed become wrong?  Why does everyone need to start at a level playing field?  The "give me" and "I deserve" attitudes found in society (I am being really nice, but if you know me, you know exactly who I am talking about) have essentially destroyed this country.  Why work when you can get it free?  <----- We have become a society of laziness and now people expect those that have been successful in life, to pay their way.  That is not how this country was formed and it is not how this country should be today.  Mitt Romney is a successful business man and liberals want to paint him as this horribly person because he is rich.  He is rich because he worked hard.  Maybe we should use him as role model instead of the "Kum ba yah" president that wants to make us all equal and dependent on government.  When you go vote tomorrow please, think with your brains and not the "body parts" or for revenge as Obama would have you do.  I want my children to live in a world that rewards hard work, respects family and offers them the American Dream...a far cry from where we are now!! As much as I love them, I don't want them living in my basement at 30 because they can't find a job!!  I want them to be a responsible part of society that contributes in making this the best country in the world to live in!

Politics 101...my rant!




I have absolutely had it with people's ignorance. First off, if you've sat on your ass with your fingers in your ears, don't talk about shit that you don't know or understand.  It doesn't make you sound passionate, it make you sound like an idiot.
Please explain to me why it is okay to make you show ID to enter the DNC but asking them to show it when they vote is too much.  I'm sorry you will just have to deal with getting alive, legal and human people to vote for you.  Shame on you for trying to cheat, but unfortunately that doesn't surprise me one bit.  Please tell me why it's wrong to make those getting welfare take a urine test to make sure the money isn't going in their arms or up their nose.  I am on disability because of a rare disorder that I was diagnosed with and I would have no problem whatsoever, giving a urine sample.  Over the last couple days I have heard more lying than I have from my kids throughout the years.  It's actually been quite comical..... the platform?

* First day God and Israel are left out of the platform.  Don't you think that if it was just mistakenly taken out, there is something seriously wrong with his staff, although I don't buy it for a minute.  People complained and they changed their tune.  Seriously, if you truly believe them, then there is no point reading anymore of this post because the kool-aid has obviously taken effect and there is no hope for you.  It took them three times to get it approved by a 2/3 vote, which again if you listen to the clip is just down right laughable.  "They were against God before they were for God" absolutely brilliant, thank you Paul Ryan.  The worst thing about that though is the fact that at least half, if not more, democrats are against God and Israel.  The highlight was a woman and a man with Arab-American signs screaming "No" as loudly as they possibly can.

They ask the question "Are you better off than you were 4 years ago?"  My answer.....a resounding HELL NO!!!!!  Unemployment, foreclosure, debt....these are by no means my American Dream.  Having government controlled health care is not my idea  American Dream.

The media is in Obama's pocket.  If you haven't seen it (if you listen to mainstream media, that is you) check it out.

Really nothing more needs to be said regarding media.....the video says it all!

Obama believes in wealth redistribution.  If your not familiar with the word, this "joke" explains it perfectly!

 I recently asked my friends' little girl what she wanted to be
when she grows up. She said she wanted to be President some day. Both of
her parents, liberal Democrats, were standing there, so I asked her, If you were President what would be the first thing you would do?
She replied, I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people.
Her parents beamed with pride.

Wow...what a worthy goal. I told her, But you don't have to
wait until you're President to do that. You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and sweep my yard, and I'll pay you $50. Then I'll take you over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use toward food and a new house.


She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me
straight in the eye and asked, Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50?

I said, Welcome to the Republican Party.
Her parents still aren't speaking to me.

Obama is on Letterman while Iran continues to build bomb.  He is out campaigning while hostile Anti-American Muslims kill our people and burn the buildings.  Obama administration blames it on a video that was around way before 9-11.  His foreign policies are an absolute failure. He ignores the plea from Israel.

*We know the movie had been online for months with no response from anyone.
*We know the embassy in Benghazi had no Marine Security Guard presence.
*We know Hillary Clinton was in lock step with Mitt Romney in her denigration of the Cairo diplomat's tweets.
*We know this was a coordinated attack in Libya; a country that was no threat to *Americans but where violence has reigned for the last year, with the support of the Obama Administration.
*We know Obama, who supported the Arab Spring and called for the overthrow of Egypt's Hosni Mubarak -a longtime ally of the US- no longer considers Egypt an ally.

Some statistics you might find interesting.

#1 Today there are 88 million working age Americans that are not employed and that are not looking for employment.  That is an all-time record high.
#2 When Barack Obama was elected, the percentage of unemployed Americans that had been out of work for more than 52 weeks was less than 15%.  Today, it is above 30%.
#3 There are 1.2 million fewer jobs in America today than there were when Barack Obama was inaugurated.
#4 When Barack Obama first took office, the number of "long-term unemployed workers" in the United States was approximately 2.6 million.  Today, that number is sitting at 5.6 million.
#5 The average duration of unemployment in the United States is hovering close to an all-time record high.
#6 During the Obama administration, worker health insurance costs have risen by 23 percent.
#7 Since Barack Obama has been president, the average price of a gallon of gasoline in the United States has increased by 90 percent.
#8 Since Barack Obama has been president, home values in the United States have declined by another 13 percent.
#9 Under Barack Obama, new home sales in the U.S. set a brand new all-time record low in 2009, they set a brand new all-time record low again in 2010, and they set a brand new all-time record low once again during 2011.
#10 Since Barack Obama took office, the number of Americans living in poverty has risen by more than 6 million.

#13 According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the percentage of Americans living in "extreme poverty" is now sitting at an all-time high.
#14 When Barack Obama first took office, an ounce of gold was going for about $850.  Today an ounce of gold costs more than $1700 an ounce.
#15 Since Barack Obama became president, the size of the U.S. national debt has increased by 44 percent.
#16 During Barack Obama's first two years in office, the U.S. government added more to the U.S. national debt than the first 100 U.S. Congresses combined.
#17 During the Obama administration, the U.S. government has accumulated more debt than it did from the time that George Washington took office to the time that Bill Clinton took office.
#18 The U.S. national debt has been increasing by an average of more than 4 billion dollars per day since the beginning of the Obama administration.

After reading all this, and you still want to vote for Obama, please I beg you, explain why? Try to convince that he is right for our country.

Turning in Circles....

Please excuse this rant...I am venting.  I need to release this sadness, anger, confusion, self-pity, defeated, hopeless feelings that have been flowing through my mind.  Although I have been suffering for over 16 years, they finally have put a name to the hell that has been my life.  Dysautonomia....yeah, I figured you'd never heard of it because nobody has.  Even my doctors.  The worst part of all this is that, finding the name is just the beginning.  It is a rare disorder that has no cure.  It is a disorder that affects every single move I make.  Getting out of bed this morning, I passed out.  Yes, I flat out lost consciousness and passed out.  Luckily this time, my bed happened to catch me, I haven't always been so lucky.  Concussions are common. 

Often I wonder if this is what my life will be like, and if it is, how the hell do I get myself up out of bed in the morning.  I guess the answer to that is the same reason that I haven't given up a long, long, time ago.  My kids and my husband.  They mean the world to me and it is for them, that I stay awake, when all I want to do is to lay down and never wake up.  It is for them that I somehow through the pain and nausea,  get just enough energy to sit in a chair and watch their soccer games.  It is for them that I put on a smile when that is the last thing I feel like doing.

 Dizziness, nausea, lightheadedness, tachycardia, barely having enough energy to walk half a block away.  This is my reality. My stomach is so distended that I went from a 16 to a 3x and can still only wear sweatpants.  I look nine months pregnant and to be honest, I am tired of explaining myself.  I am not fat, I am not lazy and if I could get on my feet and work out, you can bet your ass that I would be doing it.  I wonder, do people really think this is a lifestyle I would choose?  Do people look at my house and think what crumbs we are?  I wish that people could walk one mile in my shoes and they would finally understand what my struggle to just be normal is like.

I want to drive.  I want to be able to just get up and go to the store when I need to.  I want to wake up just one morning and not have to worry that gravity will be my enemy.  I would like to cook a meal for my family.  Did you ever think you would hear that cooking or cleaning is a luxury?  To me it is.  My house has become my jail, not because I want it to, but because that is just the way things are.  I often have little patience when I hear someone complain that they don't feel well.  Welcome to my life 24hrs a day, 7 days a week.  My laptop is my communication with the outside world.  Yeah, this sucks, to put it bluntly.  I by no means want your pity.  I just want you to understand when I wear sweats and baggy t-shirts, it is because I can't fit in my clothes.  I want you to understand that the times when I just can't paste on a smile and be happy, it is because I just can't take any more at that moment.  It doesn't mean that tomorrow, that smile won't be pasted back on my face, or that I have given up.  It is hard to be so strong all the time.  It is hard to look at my life and be fulfilled.  It is hard to look at my kids and know that they deserve so much more than I can provide for them.  It's hard looking at my husband who has been by my side through everything, and know that we still have a uphill climb.  I would give anything to be a real wife to him.  Would give anything to be that same person he fell in love with 17 years ago.

I am pissed that it took this long to figure out what is wrong with me.  I've been to specialists at the very top of their profession and they look at me like I am crazy.  I have been through many MRI's, CAT Scans, X Rays, EEG's, EKG's, and Ultrasounds.  I have been poked and prodded as if I was a vodoo doll.  I've had tubes where the sun doesn't shine and down my throat.  I've drank so many liquid concoctions over the years, that just thinking of them, makes me nauseas.  I've swallowed a pill that takes pictures as it moves through my body and I've eaten a nuclear egg.  I have been on so much medication and have gone through so many side effects that my body will probably never recover from.  I am so addicted to medicine that if I ever missed one, I would likely go into a seizure, that could ultimately kill me.  I've had doctors that threw up their hands and told me they had no idea what was wrong with me.  I've had doctors with a "God Complex" that told me it was all in my head and what makes me so angry at them is that after so long with no answers, you wonder if they are right.  I want people to understand that I'm not lazy, I am sick.  Walk one day in my shoes before you pass judgement on me.  You have no idea what I go through on a daily basis just to make it through the day and I don't think anybody can truly grasp how difficult it is without living with it day in and day out. I don't expect anyone to understand, I simply ask for your support.
