A Little Bit Of Everything

It's been a while since I've written but if I keep one more thing inside I am going to explode. we go.

Phil Robertson... The man has an opinion about homosexuality.  He expressed said opinion in an interview. He had every right to his opinion just as A&E had every right to not like his opinion. Which they didn't.  A&E had every right to "fire" him just as the many, many, many fans have the right to boycott A & E for their actions.  The last time I remember a political suicide like this is those Dixie Chicks.  If you've never heard of them....yeah, point made.  Personally, I found it hysterical.  He most definitely has a way with words.and has no use for political correctness which in my book, is a breath of fresh air compared to the walking on eggshells that has become the norm.  A& have lost a few viewers in this family!!

Watched the Flyers game yesterday against the Caps and although they kicked butt I was bothered by the Wilson hit against Schenn.  To make it worse today I hear that he had gotten off scott free.  Unless they start having consequences for dangerous hits, it will only increase.  I love the "rough and tough" of hockey but getting seriously hurt is not part of the picture.  Luckily he was uninjured and I can't help but wonder if that is what made the difference.

Christians under attack!  I'm not sure where to begin because there are so many things I want to say!!  I think that we need to create a new word.  Christianphobic. According to different polls, Christianity makes up 78.4% (up to 83% in some polls) and atheists make up 1.6% and agnostics 2.4%.  So according to those statistics, well above the majority of American's are Christian.  Now that we have established that I ask you...Why do they seem to have the loudest and strongest voice?  How can one complaint from an aethist ban prayer for an entire graduating class?  Crosses coming down, Ten Commandments removed, the mere mention of Jesus' name on a TV show offends somebody, the Pledge of Allegiance under attack?  Where is the Christian uproar? Why are we so quiet while this secular world takes God out of our country?  How much are we going to give up before we say enough?

Homosexuality... Where is your tolerance for Christianity.  You bitch and moan about how "homophobic" someone is because they don't agree with being gay but yet attack Christian with that same "tolerance."  Sorry but it doesn't work that way.  I believe gay people should have the same rights as straight people except for marriage.  I've explained this in my past posts here.  so I won't get into it yet again.  You can have your rainbow parades...but don't tell me that I have to

Finally Obamacare...  Where should I begin with this train wreck?  Cancelled plans, high deductibles and expensive plans...Oh my!  Seriously though I applied, didn't really have a choice because well, I am sick and need surgery.  My plan was cancelled so I was stuck.  This was over a week ago.  They said there was some kind of discrepancy and they needed proof of benefits, so I went and found all my paperwork, scanned it to my computer and uploaded it onto their site.  After a week of nothing I went on again today and had a conversation with the idiotic chat lady.  Read below and you will understand.....

So as of January I will not have insurance and won't be able to schedule surgery.  I applied in plenty of time but hey it's Obamacare, did I really think it would work?  Someone remind me why Obamacare is so great and going to help so many people because it has been nothing but trouble for me!!

Boston Children's Hospital Turned Into A Jail...

This is a story that hits too close to home and to hear these literally makes me sick!  In what world is this okay?  A child belongs with his/her parents unless they are being abused.  This child is NOT, nor is this child being denied care by her parents.

I have been sick a good portion of my life.  I've been told that I was crazy, faking, and finally was labeled with anxiety and had so many drugs thrown at me, some with extremely dangerous side effects/withdraw symptoms.  It was a little over a year ago that they finally put 2 + 2 together and finally found out what disorder has been destroying my life.  Of course that added even more medicine but this time, they started helping.  My parents, husband and children are the only reason I am still here today.  I can't even imagine going through this stuck at a hospital with no family or friends.  I can't imagine what a nightmare this is for the parents.  What makes it even worse is this is not an isolated case!!  If we don't take a stand, who will?  Just think how you would feel if this was your child...

"Currently  15 year old  Justina Pellitier from CT has been held at Bostons Children Hospital going on 10 months! Her parents and family are no longer allowed on BCH property.

.These very ill children are being locked in a psych ward "Badger 5" and family members are being harassed by BCH AND DCF.

The trauma to a child (and entire family), especially a sick child to be taken away from their family and home and put in this situation is detrimental to the child's overall well being. Getting a supervised visit of 1 hour and 2 -20 minute supervised phone calls a week is not good enough."

There is a facebook page that is supporting Justina's release... BCSH   Please take a moment to visit and like the page and support the effort to save this child from this hospital turned jail!!

Where Have All The Good Guys Gone?

Arresting parents at Schools kidnapping at hospitals, taking kids away because they don’t like the child’s name forcing people off the roads and taking DNA samples,   Mother arrested for shooting once into the air to stop her child from being assaulted,her child now missing child suspended for eating a pop tart that "looked" like a gun,   knockout game is deadly but fun!

What the hell has happened to this country?  A parent gets arrested because he walked to the school to pick up his kids and the school wouldn't let them go.  A hospital literally kidnaps a sick kid and parents only have visitation? Seriously?  I don't like Hitler but taking away their children because the government doesn't like the kids' names?  Schools taking the "no tolerance" level to a ridiculous height.  Police on a power trip.  I don't even recognize the country we are leaving to our children.  Slowly, very slowly, the country is starting to realize the damage that this administration has done, but I am afraid it is already too late.  No value for life is next to impossible to get back once it is lost.  God has not only been taken out of school but atheists want it to disappear from our everyday lives.  Tolerance for Islam is being forced on us yet they continue to terrorize us in his name.

So I ask again... What the hell has happened to this country?  Or should I say who?              

One word..... Obama!   Okay, maybe he hasn't singlehandedly destroyed the country but he is making one heck of a mess.  His socialist agenda is being put into action right before our eyes. Government is too big and only getting bigger.  Obamacare, IRS,....need I say more?  Isn't it bad enough that Social Security has taken our hard earned money and won't be around when we need it.  They denied help to the Ambassador of Benghazi and four of our men died.  DIED!  Their is absolutely no excuse (especially not a video) that can bring them back. Actions have consequences for everyone except government it seems. No respect for life yet again.  They (democrats) shoved Obamacare down our throats and now businesses are closing or laying off, people are losing their plans left and right, and in some cases paying more than they had before. The best part...THEY ARE EXEMPT!! Schools are indoctrinating our children with liberal/progressive material that we have little or no control of.  We can only teach our kids to the best of our ability and hope that liberal schools and colleges don't affect the morals and ideals that we've tried to instill in our children.  Little by little our rights and liberties are getting taken away and we don't even realize it.  We don't take a stand and by the time they are through, we have lost all our ammunition literally and figuratively.

Breaking News; They Renamed the White House...... The Spite House!

I cannot remember another moment in time when I have been so utterly embarrassed to be an American.  Every country has their ups and downs. We are all human and make mistakes and presidents are no different.  Although we have had some not so shining moments, I have never felt like a president (even Nixon) held such disdain for his own country.   I truly believe that he is a self serving, lying, egotistical, traitor and should be impeached.  He has the mentality of a 6 year old.  “If I can’t have my way, I will hurt as many people as possible (conservatives mostly) and then blame others (Republicans in Congress) for my many shortcomings”.   He is throwing a huge hissy fit but it's starting to stir anger.

He claims to be a Christian but when I hear his words and see his actions, they don’t add up.  It should really be very transparent to all that see him, who and what he really is.  A Muslim/Muslim sympathizer. He supports the Muslim Brotherhood and their rise to power.  Going to church doesn’t make him a Christian any more than singing in a shower makes him a rock star.  He is a socialist and wants us to become a socialist nation.  All you need to is to take off your blinders and you will see clearly past the free phone and hope and change crap.  We have been molded into a nation that has become dependent on our government…  Food Stamps, Unemployment, Welfare.  Illegal immigrants are flooding our country and he can't even to over see a wall getting built.  He maybe needs a lesson from the Chinese... theirs is quite beautiful and would ya know it, it worked!  The government has done such a bang up job on everything it runs so this health care crap, should be just peachy.  I cannot imagine anyone with half a brain wanting to turn America in the Socialist State of America.

I haven’t really sat down and put my anger to paper lately, but this latest blackmail by Obama has to be addressed.  Closing the Vietnam Memorial  and WWII Memorial was such an unbelievable blow to the veterans that have fought so hard for this country.  Men and women that watched friends die right in front of them and have nightmares every night.  Closing Mt Rushmore…. I mean really?  So ironic that he still plays his golf at Andrews Air Force Base because Heaven forbid that he actually made a sacrifice.

We do not want Obamacrap and finally our representatives are listening to us.  Companies are shutting down because they cannot afford it.  More and more people are unemployed.  Obama doesn’t really care about them because hell, he knows they are hard working middle class citizens and they don’t fit into his plan.  He caters to the ignorant, illegal, and the lazy.

The liberties he has taken away during this presidency is Unconstitutional and we need to stand up and take a stand.  We’ve watched him chip away at the 2nd Amendment.  We’ve watched media flat out lie during the Trayvon Martin case, pushing their agenda.  We’ve watched while four Americans were killed in Benghazi and Obama and Hillary didn’t give a shit.  First they lied about it and then once the truth came out, asked "What's the Difference."  I think Hillary will find out just how much of a difference it makes in 2016. That is if our Republicans can gather a new set, and start standing up for the people that elect them.   Fast and Furious got pushed under the rug faster than a cat can chase a mouse. (sorry I was looking at my cats when I came up with that) I'm sure you all can make a better analogy so have at it.

The IRS scandal, yet another shining example of how trustworthy the government is.  And...surprise, surprise, they went after Conservatives.

His foreign policy experience is abysmal and of course it shows.  He bowed to all those countries and yet somehow they still don't like us.  I can't imagine why?  He made us a joke and a country to be mocked instead of feared or respected.

The only thing left to us is to fight back.  Fight harder! Fight stronger! Be even more determined that this evil monster disguised as a half white, half black man does nothing more to destroy this country for my children.  There is nothing like a pissed off mama bear!

For all of you that just love Obamacare and think that us Conservatives are just mean and don't care about others and want to deny people healthcare for the fun of it, I ask you this.....

Why does Obama and Congress want absolutely nothing to do with it?  If it was such a great program, I wonder why they exempt themselves.  Haven't had one good answer to that question yet and don't expect to any time soon.

Gray Haired Geezer...

This was an e-mail sent to me by my mom and although not a "gray haired geezer" I couldn't agree more with the message.

They like to refer to us as senior citizens, old fogies, geezers, and in some cases dinosaurs. Some of us are "Baby Boomers" getting ready to retire. Others have been retired for some time. We walk a little slower these days and our eyes and hearing are not what they once were. We have worked hard, raised our children, worshiped our God and grown old together. Yes, we are the ones some refer to as being over the hill, and that is probably true. But before writing us off completely, there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration.

In school we studied English, history, math, and science which enabled us to lead America into the technological age. Most of us remember what outhouses were, many of us with firsthand experience. We remember the days of telephone party-lines, 25 cent gasoline, and milk and ice being delivered to our homes. For those of you who don't know what an icebox is, today they are electric and referred to as refrigerators. A few even remember when cars were started with a crank. Yes, we lived those days.

We are probably considered old fashioned and out-dated by many. But there are a few things you need to remember before completely writing us off. We won World War II, fought in Korea and Vietnam . We can quote The Pledge of Allegiance, and know where to place our hand while doing so. We wore the uniform of our country with pride and lost many friends on the battlefield. We didn't fight for the Socialist States of America ; we fought for the "Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave." We wore different uniforms but carried the same flag. We know the words to the Star Spangled Banner, America , and America the Beautiful by heart, and you may even see some tears running down our cheeks as we sing. We have lived what many of you have only read in history books and we feel no obligation to apologize to anyone for America .

Yes, we are old and slow these days but rest assured, we have at least one good fight left in us. We have loved this country, fought for it, and died for it, and now we are going to save it. It is our country and nobody is going to take it away from us. We took oaths to defend America against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that is an oath we plan to keep. There are those who want to destroy this land we love but, like our founders, there is no way we are going to remain silent.It was mostly the young people of this nation who elected Obama and the Democratic Congress. You fell for the "Hope and Change" which in reality was nothing but "Hype and Lies."

You have tasted socialism and seen evil face to face, and have found you don't like it after all. You make a lot of noise, but most are all too interested in their careers or "Climbing the Social Ladder" to be involved in such mundane things as patriotism and voting. Many of those who fell for the "Great Lie" in 2008 are now having buyer's remorse. With all the education we gave you, you didn't have sense enough to see through the lies and instead drank the 'Kool-Aid.' Now you're paying the price and complaining about it. No jobs, lost mortgages, higher taxes, and less freedom. This is what you voted for and this is what you got. We entrusted you with the Torch of Liberty and you traded it for a paycheck and a fancy house.

Well, don't worry youngsters, the Grey-Haired Brigade is here, and in 2014 we are going to take back our nation. We may drive a little slower than you would like but we get where we're going, and in 2014 we're going to the polls by the millions.

This land does not belong to the man in the White House nor to the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. It belongs to "We the People" and "We the People" plan to reclaim our land and our freedom. We hope this time you will do a better job of preserving it and passing it along to our grandchildren. So the next time you have the chance to say the Pledge of Allegiance, Stand up, put your hand over your heart, honor our country, and thank God for the old geezers of the "Grey-Haired Brigade." I am another Gray-Haired Geezer signing on. I will circulate this to other Gray-Haired Geezers all over this once great county.

Obama Is Making A Joke Out Of This Country, and I Am One Pissed Off American!!

This has been a long time coming but it's time I let it out.  Obama is not my president and he is most definitely not the president of the United States.  He may have the "title" but to be president you must love this country and what it stands for and protect it with everything you are.

The President of the United States would not send money/ammunition/assistance to Islamic extremists like the Muslim Brotherhood. He would never be too busy partying with celebs, golfing or careless, letting four Americans in Benghazi die.   If he did, the last thing he would do is LIE and blame it on a video.  I don't think there has been one truthful thing out of his mouth that I can think of.  His "transparent" release of documents?  Nope!  Obama care? Nope!  Benghazi? Nope!  Fast & Furious? Nope, not that either.

I see other countries getting together in unity against a dictator and wonder why we don't.  Haven't we sat quietly for too long while this incompetent, arrogant, pretentious, excuse for a human being is ruining our country?  All presidents make mistakes and do some stupid things, but his is actual hatred for who and what we are.  He doesn't represent me.  People say I am racist because I don't like him but the fact is I don't like the white half either.  He is a Muslim and he can pretend to go to church and not hear the anti-American filth from his pastor, but he doesn't fool me.  If you don't see that then you are either blind or stupid.  I don't usually say too much about people that like him, but if you can't see him for the traitor he is, you need to open your eyes.  I shouldn't have to suffer from your stupidity.  I shouldn't have to sacrifice because of your dependency on government programs.  I shouldn't have to wake up knowing any day this idiot in chief could start World War lll because of your ignorance.  I am tired of being tolerant and I want him out.  I want this Muslim/Muslim sympathizer out of office.

So many countries are standing up for what they believe in but what about us.  I say it's time to take this country back before it becomes too late.  The media can kiss my pretty white tush!  They are just as bad if not worse than Obama.  The manipulation of video's and soundbites to deceive us.  Ummm... Trayvon Martin anyone?  Or do you watch MSNBC and don't know what they did to the audio?

This Syria situation is the last straw!  I am pissed off that instead of looking to us as a superpower we have become a joke.  That's right, other countries are laughing at us.  We tried to warn you that he had absolutely no experience and that bowing to other countries would not make us their friends, it made us weak!  We have lost their respect and any integrity we might have had.   You made a stupid statement (then again, what should we really expect) and now you are desperately trying to save face by handing it off to Congress.'s a wee bit too late for that.  People are finally seeing you for who and what you are.

A Poem I Wrote.... A Day With Dysautonomia

I was feeling a bit discouraged tonight and tried to put it into words...

A Day With Dysautonomia

My tears, they fall down like rain,
I try so hard to hide the pain.
My broken body, tired and bruised
My spirit, my hope so cruelly misused.

Acceptance seems so hard to find
Limits and sacrifice consume my mind.
I long for sleep to end the sorrow
Another day, another tomorrow.

Gravity my enemy, salt my new best friend
Mixed signals to my organs, my defective brain sends.
Blood pressure, too high or low
Heart rate, too fast or too slow.

Light headed and dizzy                                                  
Simply by standing,
Walking a few steps
is incredibly demanding.

My chair, my refuge
Just a few feet away.
My comfort yet my jail
I will spend most of my day.

Existing in a vessel
that I can not control.
It takes a toll on my body
and it tortures my soul.

With each new treatment
 I give it my all.
Yet with every turn,
I face another wall.

Normal is not a word I hear,
Life passing by is one of my greatest fears.
Happy, laughing, smiling,I loved to play
Angry tears fill my eyes, when I think of those days

I don't look in the mirror, I'm too afraid to see
the empty, sad face staring back at me.
Yet deep inside, my faith is strong.
It refuses to quit,and gives me the strength to go on.

A silent prayer to get me through the day
A deep breath and I am on my way.
Little steps are all I can make,
But I find out that it is all it takes.

Anthony on Gun Control.....

At least my son Anthony knows what the Constitution is......

Gun Control Controversy 

There are two main sides to the argument over gun control. You can say that guns are dangerous and the guns kill many citizens and cause mayhem, or you can say that guns are a right for American citizens and it is needed. The logical answer though, is we need guns. Without guns, it would be very scary. About Fifty-six percent of Americans believe we should still own guns, but honestly, that number should be a whole lot higher. That number is so high because we wouldn’t have the protection, the 2nd Amendment provides us.  Guns are used for self-defense, and without guns we would have a government that would have unlimited power and resources.
The Right to bear arms is one of the most important rights of the United States citizens. Our founding fathers created this as the 2nd Amendment of our Constitution.. American Citizens had guns since 1791(The Right to Bear Arms, pg. 96). It is now 2013 and we are considering to get rid of guns. Why? There have been more and more killings throughout the years since the 1791 and if we take away guns, that number will sky rocket (The Right to Bear Arms, pg. 89). Also the 2nd amendment secures the individual rights to be armed when insecure against tyranny, invasion, and crime.  Our founding fathers protected us from this happening in the United States.  They knew what would happen if government got too big or too powerful.  Taking away gun rights would leave us vulnerable should tyranny ever occur. By limiting what guns we can use, the government cannot over power us while using machine guns while we are using handguns.
My second reason on which why we have to keep guns is because carrying handguns reduce crime. With thieves, murderers, and rapists many people can feel that they’re not safe at home. With a hand gun to protect themselves they can feel they are safe. Instead of 10,250,000 crimes, I bet it would well be over 15 million. Criminals would take advantage of the bans and would commit more crimes. Over 300 million citizens have guns (Carrying Concealed Weapons Reduce Crime, N/A). 67% of these people have guns for their own protection (Carrying Concealed Weapons Reduce Crime, N/A). And out of that 67% 65 million of them are handguns (Carrying Concealed Weapons Reduce Crime, N/A). One of the statements in the Constitution is you have the right to feel safe and secure in your own home.  These men and women are doing what’s right for their friends and family. They have weapons to self-defend from any type of crime. But are their even that many crimes? Yes, an estimated 498,000 criminals try to break into homes each year (Carrying Concealed Weapons Reduce Crime, N/A)! That’s almost estimated 1400 break-ins each day (Carrying Concealed Weapons Reduce Crime, N/A)! Another 16,272 murderers commit and murder each year (Carrying Concealed Weapons Reduce Crime, N/A). That’s estimated 44 people dying each day! If we didn’t have guns to protect ourselves I would be scared to see how high that number would be. With knowing these numbers, you think, well if guns didn’t exist that wouldn’t have happened. But the quote from Eddie Izzard, “? Guns don’t kill people, people kill people” really tells you that the guns aren’t the problem with the crimes (Carrying Concealed Weapons Reduce Crime, N/A). It’s the people’s actions that create the problem. Do better background checks for the guns? Do tests and examinations for the guns? That’s for the president to figure out. But, it’s not a decision to eliminate guns, we just can’t do it.
The last but certainly not the least difficulty in this controversy is an overpowering government. Do you know who was famous for having an overpowering and absolute dominating army, Adolf Hitler. Yes, Hitler took the Jews rights, in which were the right to bear arms, and just snatched it (Self Defense, N/A).  The Jews didn’t take it into consideration that the citizens wouldn’t have any power when they have no militarily power. They have no word when they can’t have or use the power of speech when physically the Germans can do and say what they want with their guns. Sooner or later as you know the Germans took all of the power and they killed over 6 million Jews (Self Defense, N/A). The Jews couldn’t do anything. I’m not saying Obama is going to be the new Hitler, but I’m not going to say it can’t happen if we don’t be smart and realize how important guns really are. And lastly, from research after research, I still can’t find out how our president can say we are going to ban guns, there too dangerous, but almost 24/7 he has security on buildings and roofs and in everywhere he goes. If he can be protected, why can’t we?
Millions and millions of people participate and contribute in the controversy over gun control. But if we think in between the lines and really look at the numbers, it would be a catastrophe if the United States citizens did not have the right or privilege to bear arms. We wouldn’t have protection, the 2nd amendment is meant for self-defense, and government break out would be a serious problem in the hands of power of word and military. All of it would disappear in a flash, and it would be too late. For 222 years now we have had the right to bear arms, and the government will not take them now.

Could This Have Been Avoidable?

Executive Order -- White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans | The White House

This executive order was passed over a year ago and I can't help but ponder if this racist piece of crap legislation could have contributed to the increasing violence seen every day by black children.

The order essentially gives a green light for black students to misbehave in public schools. In two places, Obama's executive order calls on schools to reduce the number disciplinary actions taken against blacks students. The order specifically calls on schools too "not rely on methods that result in disparate use of disciplinary tools."

Three thugs beating the crap out of an innocent while boy on a school bus for reporting them for trying to sell him drugs in the bathroom.  The first thing I would like to know is why their parents weren't called in and the thugs immediately suspended?  Why would you send them home on the same bus?  There is talk of the bus driver being charged and honestly, I am still kind of wishy washy where I stand on that one.  I personally feel that the school needs to be held responsible for this child's beating.  My question to you all is do you think that this executive order that basically tells the schools that black violence is to be looked over could have prevented this.

This story hits way to close to home.....

Innocence lost by thugs below...

Two teenage boys, Donte and Justin Robinson, were charged with murder, conspiracy to commit murder, disposing of a body, tampering with evidence and theft. An autopsy revealed that Pasquale likely died of blunt force trauma, consistent with strangulation, and that there was no evidence of sexual assault. Authorities said that they believed the teenage boys wanted Pasquale's bicycle and its parts.
It was also revealed that a Facebook post by one of the suspects invited Pasquale to his home when she expressed interest in a bike. Residents also said that one of the suspects attended a vigil where people prayed for her safe return, and that he "liked" her memorial page.  For more information follow this link.

Marley Lion and Trayvon Martin were both 17 years old when they were shot to death, both unarmed, and both doing nothing illegal.

The difference — Marley Lion is white, and some people claim that race is the reason Martin’s killing was national news but Lion’s is not.

Lion was killed in Charleston, South Carolina, at around 4 am on June 16, 2012. Police found him lying on the ground outside his Nissan Pathfinder, bleeding to death. Before dying he told police that two black males approached his car, one of them shooting him several times.

Charleston police would later arrest four people in connection with the shooting. The Charleston Police Department said they came across the suspects when one of them tried to sell the gun that had been used in Marley’s murder.

MLK Dream? I Don't Think So...

This is one of the most disgusting form of "art" that I have ever seen.  Besides being extremely race stirring it's not even accurate.  They should have had Zimmerman laying on the ground getting his head slammed into the concrete.  The message is supposed to be that we are all Trayvon Martin.  BUT I am NOT Trayvon Martin...I never smoked Pot or any other drugs, never assaulted anyone, never burglarized a house and stole female jewelry, never brought weed to school, never got suspended, and my parents never kicked me out of the house.

I was not at the store buying the ingredients to make a "Purple Drank." Nor do I have any liver damage from drugs. 

 I am nothing like Trayvon Martin, even the slightest little bit.  There are thousands that are killed by violence and yet a case in which the "victim" (Zimmerman) was found innocent, is portrayed as art. Instead of trying to improve the racial divide, she put up a constant reminder of this so called "crime."

  The picture shows MLK looking away... I think that is the only thing accurate in the whole twisted piece of garbage. I think he would be horrified to see what his dream has become.

Life With Dysautonomia...

We went to Atlantic City today.  Normally this is followed by we went to_____________casino and did a little gambling.  (We used to bring $20.00 and go Casino hopping)  Had a great dinner at the buffet and walked the boardwalk and on the beach hand in hand.  We did it without thinking anything of it, but this trip was just a reminder of the reality of my life.  Today it went like this.... Got a shower last night because I just don't have enough spoons (energy) to do both in one day. Because of my insomnia I didn't fall asleep till 5:00 a.m.   I didn't wake up till 1:00 p.m.  I woke up with my usual nausea, a bladder infection I can't seem to get rid of, my normal bloating and abdominal pain and my super human ability to walk up a set of stairs.  I used to love car rides, most of the time usually knocked out after a half hour.   This trip was vastly different.  The bumps made my nausea worse and I will let it go there because I know you don't want to know the details.  Dinner was not even in the picture as I barely eat on a good day.  I couldn't leave the car because the heat just does not like my body.  If I did, it wouldn't make a difference because walking from the car to the boardwalk would have m gasping for breath.  On the ride home I had a lot of thoughts running through my head and I just mourned the life I used to live.  I hope anyone that reads this, takes a moment to appreciate the things you can do and take nothing for granted because things may change in the blink of the eye.

Bye Bye America....

Where on earth has our country gone?  It sure isn't the same one that I grew up in.  The America that I knew would never have let the deceit,  irresponsible spending (Obama's many vacations), lack of military leadership, Muslim favoring and rampant racism occur without blinking an eye.  What's worse is that Obama is responsible for most of it and of course the media that can't seem to crawl out of Obama's butt.

Hmmm, where shall I start?  The sequestration that closes the White House to tours had no effect whatsoever on the Obama's vacations.  Africa, Hawaii..... Must be nice!  Apparently the sequester (along with the economy) effects everyone except the Obama's.  White House tours or vacations?  It is very telling what they chose!!  Glad they had a good time on vacation though, that is so important that they enjoy themselves.  Not even gonna get started on golf!

Scandals galore, and unfortunately not phony at all, Obama, as much as you would like them to be.  All real and all completely reprehensible.

IRS targeting Conservatives.  These are the same people that are gonna be in charge of Obamacare?    If that doesn't scare the ever living shit out of you, you haven't been paying attention. Speaking of Obamacare, nobody wants it.  Doctors, businesses both small and large, taxpayers hate it.  If this is such a great thing for our country why on earth is Congress exempt?

Senators, representatives, and their top aides will be able to stay under the current subsidized health care system.
That means they will continue to get a taxpayer-funded contribution to help pay for their health care premiums.
A last-minute deal worked out before Congress went on their five-week summer vacation gets lawmakers out of the original language of Obamacare, which said members and their aides had to use its health care plans.
Republicans like Sen. David Vitter of Louisiana slammed the move, calling it a "behind-closed-doors deal, announced right after Congress is safely away from the crime scene."
"This is exactly why America rightly hates Washington," Vitter charged. "Obamacare's a train wreck, even for Congress. So it gets fixed -- for Congress only. What the flip about fixing it for America?"

Hmm, what's that saying "What is good for the goose, is good for the gander" Yeah right!!

Benghazi (sigh)  If you had asked me what country is capable of ignoring their military and representatives plea's for help, then when all hell breaks loose, simply ignoring nor caring that four men died because you couldn't be bothered, I would never in my wildest dreams, have said the U.S.   Then to top it off, deny knowledge and lie about it.  Put a man in prison because of this video and then blamed it for the "riot" in Benghazi.  I couldn't come up with just one word to express my deep hatred of Obama, so please choose your favorite... Abominable, cruel, pathetic, appalling, heinous, revolting, shameful, callous, evil, inhumane, heartless, wicked, ruthless, sadistic.... the list truly can go on and on, but I digress...

I knew he had no military experience, but I never could have predicted the abysmal state he has brought us to.  We are a joke!  The countries that he bowed down and apologized to are laughing at us.  The irony is that he is too stupid to realize it.  Why, I am completely shocked that the Muslim terrorists didn't just welcome us with open arms, let alone stop attacking us! (said with the most amount of sarcasm I could put into it)

Dividing the country into black and white, poor and rich, Muslim and Christian, and straight and gay.  Instead of embracing what makes us unique, we are being forced to choose on or the other.  We are a divided nation. History has been very clear showing what happened divided nations!        

Phony scandals my butt!!  (Just know that I held back so many words in this piece, my tongue is raw)

1. IRS targets Obama’s enemies: The IRS targeted conservative and pro-Israel groups prior to the 2012 election. Questions are being raised about why this occurred, who ordered it, whether there was any White House involvement and whether there was an initial effort to hide who knew about the targeting and when.
2. Benghazi: This is actually three scandals in one:
  • The failure of administration to protect the Benghazi mission.
  • The changes made to the talking points in order to suggest the attack was motivated by an anti-Muslim video
  • The refusal of the White House to say what President Obama did the night of the attack
3. Watching the AP: The Justice Department performed a massive cull of Associated Press reporters’ phone records as part of a leak investigation.
4. Rosengate: The Justice Department suggested that Fox News reporter James Rosen is a criminal for reporting about classified information and subsequently monitored his phones and emails.
5. Potential Holder perjury I: Attorney General Eric Holder told Congress he had never been associated with “potential prosecution” of a journalist for perjury when in fact he signed the affidavit that termed Rosen a potential criminal.
6. The ATF “Fast and Furious” scheme: Allowed weapons from the U.S. to “walk” across the border into the hands of Mexican drug dealers. The ATF lost track of hundreds of firearms, many of which were used in crimes, including the December 2010 killing of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
7. Potential Holder Perjury II: Holder told Congress in May 2011 that he had just recently heard about the Fast and Furious gun walking scheme when there is evidence he may have known much earlier.
8. Sebelius demands payment: HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius solicited donations from companies HHS might regulate. The money would be used to help her sign up uninsured Americans for ObamaCare.
9. The Pigford scandal: An Agriculture Department effort that started as an attempt to compensate black farmers who had been discriminated against by the agency but evolved into a gravy train delivering several billion dollars in cash to thousands of additional minority and female farmers who probably didn’t face discrimination.
10. GSA gone wild: The General Services Administration in 2010 held an $823,000 training conference in Las Vegas, featuring a clown and a mind readers. Resulted in the resignation of the GSA administrator.
11. Veterans Affairs in Disney World: The agency wasted more than $6 million on two conferences in Orlando. An assistant secretary was fired.
12. Sebelius violates the Hatch Act: A U.S. special counsel determined that Sebelius violated the Hatch Act when she made “extemporaneous partisan remarks” during a speech in her official capacity last year. During the remarks, Sebelius called for the election of the Democratic candidate for governor of North Carolina.
13. Solyndra: Republicans charged the Obama administration funded and promoted its poster boy for green energy despite warning signs the company was headed for bankruptcy. The administration also allegedly pressed Solyndra to delay layoff announcements until after the 2010 midterm elections.
14. AKA Lisa Jackson: Former EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson used the name “Richard Windsor” when corresponding by email with other government officials, drawing charges she was trying to evade scrutiny.
15. The New Black Panthers: The Justice Department was accused of using a racial double standard in failing to pursue a voter intimidation case against Black Panthers who appeared to be menacing voters at a polling place in 2008 in Philadelphia.
16. Waging war all by myself: Obama may have violated the Constitution and both the letter and the spirit of the War Powers Resolution by attacking Libya without Congressional approval.
17. Biden bullies the press: Vice President Biden’s office has repeatedly interfered with coverage, including forcing a reporter to wait in a closet, making a reporter delete photos, and editing pool reports.
18. AKPD not A-OK: The administration paid millions to the former firm of then-White House adviser David Axelrod, AKPD Message and Media, to promote passage of Obamacare. Some questioned whether the firm was hired to help pay Axelrod $2 million AKPD owed him.
19. Sestak, we’ll take care of you: Former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel used Bill Clinton as an intermediary to probe whether former Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) would accept a prominent, unpaid White House advisory position in exchange for dropping out of the 2010 primary against former Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.).
20. I’ll pass my own laws: Obama has repeatedly been accused of making end runs around Congress by deciding which laws to enforce, including the decision not to deport illegal immigrants who may have been allowed to stay in the United States had Congress passed the “Dream Act.”
21. The hacking of Sharyl Attkisson’s computer: It’s not clear who hacked the CBS reporter’s computer as she investigated the Benghazi scandal, but the Obama administration and its allies had both the motive and the means to do it.
22. An American Political Prisoner: The sudden decision to arrest Nakoula Basseley Nakoula on unrelated charges after protests in the Arab world over his anti-Muslim video is an extraordinarily suspicious coincidence. “We’re going to go out and we’re going to prosecute the person that made that video,” Hillary Clinton allegedly told the father of one of the ex-SEALs killed in Benghazi.
23. Get rid of inconvenient IGs: Corporation for National and Community Service Inspector General Gerald Walpin was fired in 2009 as he fought wasteful spending and investigated a friend of Obama’s, Sacramento Mayor and former NBA player Kevin Johnson. The White House says Walpin was incompetent.
24. Influence peddling: An investigation is underway of Alejandro Mayorkas, director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, who has been nominated by Obama for the number two post at the Department of Homeland Security. Mayorkas may have used his position to unfairly obtain U.S. visas for foreign investors in company run by Hillary Clinton’s brother, Anthony Rodman

Black and White....No Apologies!

These three BLACK animals decided to beat the living crap out of a WHITE boy on a school bus for "ratting them out."  Apparently one of the boys tried to sell the (white boy) drugs in the school bathroom.  Instead of doing the wrong thing, he turned them in.

Below is his thank you from these BLACK animals.

WFLA-TV News Channel 8

This is what is wrong with society today.  It's ironic, I had a hard time finding information regarding this case.  Why?  The innocent victim is white.  They don't even print the boys name.  Why?  They don't care about victims unless they are black.  I'm tired of walking on eggshells, trying not to offend anyone.  Look on Youtube or even the city of Chicago, this is not something new.

Al, Jesse, Obama...if you want a race, I will give you a freakin race.  Shall we compare the number of white violence to the number of black violence.  Yeah, I didn't think so.

It is not okay to offer excuses.  It is not okay to look the other way.  I don't give a rats ass if he/she only has a single parent and they were never there or if he grew up in the hood.  There comes a time in your life when you have to take responsibility for the decisions made and suffer the consequences.  If the jails are crowded with black inmates it is because they did the crime.  Not because their ancestors who they don't even know, were slaves.  This is the world we live in now and the more people excuse their actions, the more it will happen.

We will probably never hear of what happened to these three animals but until the victim is just a victim regardless of his or her race, we will be a nation divided by race.  I for one, will not bow down to "white guilt" and apologize for being white.

Just A Color...

Black, white, brown, purple, green, red, blue, orange... I am not describing a pack of crayons and most importantly not a color of a persons skin...  These are colors.  Beautiful colors that exist in the world.

Rainbows, snow, leaves, trees, flowers, sand, stones...they all exist together in nature and yet are amazingly unique in their simplicity.  When they are seen together, it is perfection.

When we can look at each other and see another human with dreams, goals, struggles, happiness, sadness, loneliness, fear, determination...  Then, and only then will we have racial harmony.

How can a man that is half black and black white, decide that he is only black.  We are a country of mixed races and we become even more so every day.  Maybe in my children's future, they will see a world where you are not looked at and judged on what color skin you have.

Why do we need to label people?  MLK fought and died for equality, not this crap that we have right now. I imagine that he is looking down at us with sadness in his eyes, wondering how his dream could have gone so wrong.  He did not want separation.  He wanted unity.  Ironically, the country got it's first mixed president, something that should have been a milestone and turned into one of the biggest detrimental administrations in history.  The sad thing was that instead of just being a president, he became a black president by the media, and whomever it deemed fortuitous to at the time.

Remember when George Bush was president or for that matter any of the previous presidents?  If you disliked him, it was because of his policies, what he stood for, his integrity.  Now though, if you don't agree with something Obama does, you are immediately labeled a racist.

If you would have told me that the nation would be more divided while and after having a mixed president I would have told you that you were off your rocker. (love Betty White)  But that is exactly what is happening.

Just imagine if you read the newspaper (do people still do and color was not allowed to be mentioned.  Just imagine if television networks, grants, pageants, and programs didn't have black in front of them.  Affirmative Action and all racial discrimination was gone.  That my friends is racial equality.  That was Martin Luther King's dream.

Zimmerman NOT GUILTY...Now lets get on with the rest of our lives!

I know, this is yet another blog about the Trayvon/Zimmerman case.  Surprise, Surprise!  People are twitting like crazy and already death threats are being heard.  The NAACP has already said they want to bring a civil suit against him.  The drama has begun.  The black and white divide has just opened and with each accusation it is slowly but surely getting bigger.

Trayvon Martin is dead.  Nothing is going to bring him back.  It's a tragedy and I feel for the family because I can't imagine losing my sons.

He was arrested, charged and given a trial.  He was acquitted by the jury.  Whether you agree with the decision makes no difference in the judicial system.  There have been many cases where I did not agree with the jury's decision... Casey Anthony, OJ Simpson (yet another trial that turned into a race battle) but you live with it.  You get up in the morning and get on with your day, on with your life. (excluding the families involved of course)

Death threats... George Zimmerman is going to be walking around the rest of his life with a bulls eye on his back. There is talk of riots.  Sharpton and Jackson on their soapboxes trying to stir up even more hatred than has already taken hold of people.

Was Zimmerman totally innocent? Absolutely not!  He should have locked his doors and waited for police to arrive.  Hindsight is 20/20 unfortunately the here and now is rife with emotions and fear.

Was Trayvon totally innocent?  Absolutely not!  People seem to be forgetting that he was NOT a child and according to the pictures and hospital report he was slamming Zimmerman's head into the concrete and punching him in the face.  If he was just an innocent little boy walking home with Skittles and tea, he would not have beat the crap out of Zimmerman.  Not to mention the pot in his system.

I think what needs to come out of this case is to re-examine the "Stand Your Ground" laws and he definitely should not be allowed anywhere near the town watch.  I truly hope this country can calmly and peacefully move on.  It's over and whether you agree or not, justice has been served.

Tolerance...Liberals...Hypocrisy... Oh My!

I couldn't think of a title because, well, the three seem to go hand in hand.

As a white Conservative Christian, I am told daily to have tolerance of others by media, celebrities, politicians, schools, the gay community, Muslims...the list goes on and on.  I am a Christian but I was never one to suffocate others with my beliefs.  The way I live is my witness and by way I treat others.  The hypocrisy that the left preaches and practices is beyond compare.  It's only tolerance of their lifestyle that they support.

One thing that particularly bothers me is when people who don't even believe in the Bible try and take certain verses to prove their point.  I think the most common one I see is Luke 6:37 which states... "Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven."

Did Jesus really mean that we should never judge things, people, groups, or concepts? NO!  We need to continue reading past this into the next four verses in order to find the answer to this. What Jesus went on to say is that we should judge ourselves before we go about judging others. He is NOT saying that we should not judge at all! Jesus want us to reflect on ourselves and purify ourselves and our motives before we take the time to judge others.

You cannot pick and choose in regards to Bible verses.  If you quote it, then I suggest you read it first.

"Two street preachers were brutally beaten — punched and kicked — by a crowd at a gay pride festival in Seattle and the entire melee was captured on video. The preachers were holding signs reading “Repent or Else” and “Jesus Saves From Sin.” The video shows a group of people initially screaming and threatening the men during Pridefest at the Seattle Space Needle. Television station KOMO reported that some of the attackers belonged to a group called NOH8 A group of women tried to steal their signs but were unsuccessful. The video then shows a group of men grabbing onto one of the preacher’s signs and dragging him to the ground. At some point he was punched in the back of the head a number of times while others can be seen kicking the man. Another preacher was sucker punched in the back of the head. Police arrested two suspects – one of whom has a long rap sheet. It’s not the first time Christians have been attacked by pro-gay activists."  For the full story click here.

To The Men In My Life...

This post is dedicated to the most incredible men that I am blessed to have in my life.
First comes hubby.  Besides the fact that he is a wonderful father, he is also an amazing husband and best friend.  He makes me laugh.  I may roll my eyes but deep down I love it.  Even now he is breaking them for me, and I can only shake my head and smile.  He has been so supportive through times when, if he were smart, should have been running for the hills.  I am sure glad he didn't though.  They always say you should marry your best friend and I was blessed enough to do so.  I often wonder what I did to deserve him.

 He has a heart the size of Texas and every time I see him with the boys, I can only hope and pray that they grow up to be just like him.   Well, minus a few things but I won't mention them here. Hehe!  All you have to do is look at the pictures to see how much he loves his family!  Oh, don't let him fool you, even though he said he did it for the kids, he loved the rides!!  If I had to hand select my perfect husband and father, I wouldn't change a thing.   I love you Babe... Happy Fathers Day!

I may not have the "typical" father daughter relationship that some families have.  My dad has always worked really hard, whether he was a teenager, helping support his brothers and sisters when his dad passed away,  joining the army to serve his country, or raising a family by hard labor and dedication.

He was always there for me. We used to have a softball catch every day.  I was actually pretty good.  I played short stop and the first baseman said I threw too hard.  My dad told me, if she can't handle it, she shouldn't be playing. At one point, when I wanted to pitch he would actually stand across from me while balls flew over his head and in the bushes, or across the street.  He was my number one cheer leader but was also critical when I did something stupid.  It shaped who I am.

 I remember being sick and him sitting by my side and rubbing my back all night. I remember when I was going through one of the hardest times in my life (health) he would come over every day and spend the day with me while John was at work.  He would cut coupons out of the paper for us and would play word searches.  He is steady and solid and dependable.  He is a rock! (In a good way) He was not my friend, he was my father and I am very thankful for that.  I feel sometimes we didn't appreciate enough the sacrifices he made to make sure we were safe, healthy and happy!

There is a song by Holly Dunn called "Daddy's Hands" that personifies him to a tee.

 He would do anything for anybody, and if for some odd reason he couldn't, he would find someone that could. He truly has a <3 of Gold. 

 Below is my all time favorite picture of him!

In Black and White....

I remember he went to every vacation and even though he didn't go on a single ride, he held our  pocket books and diaper bags, while we went on the rides.  I remember the boys all running up to him to tell him all about the ride.  I love you dad, and although I don't say it as much as I should, Thank You for all that you've done!

Happy Fathers Day...I Love You!


Finally, comes my father-in-law.  When that word is spoken it is usually with a cringe or roll of the eyes, but in my case it's totally different.  From the first moment I called him dad, he held his hands wide open and made me his daughter.  I am not sure there is a better gift to a daughter-in-law than acceptance and unconditional love, and he's given both in abundance.  He's opened his heart and more recently his home to us and I will never forget that gift.
 I Love you, Papa Bear! Happy Fathers Day!!

Sorry Papa Bear, I couldn't resist!!
