Relax!

January 29, 2016

Easier said than done.  However in order to enjoy my day I am going to now allow myself 15 minutes to breathe mindfully, to stretch easily, and to pray to keep my mind in a positive mode.

The reason I am feeling in need of a brief “regenerative relaxation” is because I just spent a bit more time than I planned on my stressmanagementmagic.com blog. My subject was about the homeless and the plight of us all, therein.

It may have sounded negative, but I believe I ended the post with ideas to help however many individuals choose to follow.  I follow my own advice.  I also allow myself to regenerate and relax after writing something that made my blood boil for a moment or two.

CREATE a beautiful day for yourself.  I will be in the process of doing the same as soon as this post is posted!  God help and bless us all.

FYI: if you read that blog, remember I have helped people, and will continue to do so when I can and feel the situation is real.

Subject: Eyewitness Report from Polish Blogger on Italian-Austrian Border MANDATORY READING WITH PHOTOS

September 15, 2015

trash-02trash-06trash-04Eyewitness Report from Polish Blogger on Italian-Austrian Border MANDATORY READING WITH PHOTOS
And these are the people Obama wants to bring to the U.S.?!! And on top of that over the objections of Homeland Security, the FBI and some of his national security advisors.

Lest we feel too sorry for them. Note all the donated food trashed and left behind.
Why do these muslims not go to another muslim country? Why should the west take care of them ? Where is Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iraq ,Bahrain, Qatar,??? They have tons of money and are Muslim brothers.
This may be a bad sign of things to come if all of this is true.
September 6, 2015 by TNO Staff— in Europe
An eye-witness account from Kamil Bulonis, a Polish travel blog writer, who was present on the Italian-Austrian border on September 5, 2015, as swarms of Third World nonwhites poured across the border to invade Austria and Germany (A translation from Polish): (Please note: all pictures from the Hungarian-Austrian border)

“Half an hour ago on the border between Italy and Austria I saw with my own eyes a great many immigrants … With all solidarity with people in difficult circumstances I have to say that what I saw arouses horror … This huge mass of people – sorry, that I’ll write this – but these are absolute savages … Vulgar, throwing bottles, shouting loudly “We want to Germany!” – and is Germany a paradise now?
I saw how they surrounded a car of an elderly Italian woman, pulled her by her hair out of the car and wanted to drive away in the car.
They tried to overturn the bus in I travelled myself with a group of others. They were throwing faeces at us, banging on the doors to force the driver to open them, spat at the windscreen … I ask for what purpose? How is this savagery to assimilate in Germany?
I felt for a moment like in a war … I really feel sorry for these people, but if they reached Poland – I do not think that they would get any understanding from us … We were waiting three hours at the border which ultimately could not cross.
Our whole group was transported back to Italy in a police-cordon. The bus is damaged, covered with faeces, scratched, with broken windows. And this is supposed to be an idea for demographics? These big powerful hordes of savages?
Among them there were virtually no women, no children—the vast majority were aggressive young men … Just yesterday, while reading about them on all the websites I subconsciously felt compassion, worried about their fate but today after what I saw I am just afraid and yet I am happy that they did not choose our country as their destination. We Poles are simply not ready to accept these people – neither culturally nor financially.
I do not know if anyone is ready. To the EU a pathology is marching which we had not yet a chance to ever see, and I am sorry if anyone gets offended by his entry …
I can add that cars arrived with humanitarian aid – mainly food and water and they were just overturning those cars …
Through megaphones the Austrians announced that there is permission for them to cross the border—they wanted to register them and let them go on—but they did not understand these messages. They did not understand anything.
And this was the greatest horror … For among those few thousand people nobody understood Italian or English, or German, or Russian, or Spanish … What mattered was fist law… They fought for permission to move on and they had this permission— but did not realize that they had it!
They opened the luggage hatches of a French bus—and everything that was inside was stolen within short time, some things left lying on the ground …
Never in my short life had I an opportunity to see such scenes and I feel that this is just the beginning.”

This seems to be a “non-hero” action by John McCain. A friend I trust sent me this.

July 22, 2015

I think our politicians and leaders are the only ones in the world who sell out their own Native people by selling our country out from all of us.  It does make me sick.  I love my country.

Katniss is real, and she is an Apache.11742702_840554335992441_9171768963361075980_n

While we were all looking the other way, sacred Apache land (that was also property of the American people as a whole) was sold to an Australian-British mining company that will soon have the rights to leave a 2-mile crater in the area. How did this happen? Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake slipped the deal in at the last minute at the bottom of a much-needed military defense spending bill. Apache have been camped out on the sacred site of Oak Flat ever since, and this young warrior, along with a handful of others, traveled to NYC all the way from Arizona to try to bring attention to her people’s plight.

Let’s help this story spread and let this real life rebel know that she is not alone, and that the American people won’t stand for this betrayal to us all.

It always works!

Brad Culpepper – Insurance fraud or not?

February 5, 2015

Brad Culpepper, an Ex-NFL player has been accused of insurance fraud!

His case is really a complex one.
I HAVE to take strong pain medication for my injuries and two neurosurgeries that followed – JUST TO allow me to FUNCTION “almost normally”.

Because you can look at someone and see him or her act normally – at least in your visual perception – it does NOT me that person is without injuries or pain! If you saw his intrview he did take off his shirt and show two of the injuries.

I think most insurance companies are a total rip-off anyway. You have homeowners IN CASE something horrible happens and you need help. You have car insurance IN CASE you are in an accident. You have medical and dental insurance IN CASE you need work done on your body or teeth. You have life insurance for years, JUST IN CASE you die unexpectedly. It’s all pretty morbid.

Something many people don’t know is that most term life insurance policies (ones you think will leave your loved ones monetarily set) raise their premiums after ten years of you paying premiums. Most people don’t pay too much attention to paperwork, and my friend didn’t either. After ten years of paying a policy on her husband they upped the payments so high she could not afford to pay premiums, so she cancelled. Her husband died from a heart attack shortly thereafter.

There is a way to keep that from happening. IF YOUR COMPANY WILL DO IT, change that term life policy / or whole life, to “universal life policy” and you may pay a bit more each premium, but the payments will NEVER go up, and the payout is guaranteed the same!

Back to the subject matter! If I had published this yesterday I would have said the insurance company is full of garbage. Now I am sitting on the fence.

I do know when severely injured, pain and even some disabilites can be OVERWHELMNG. I am a Christian so suicide is out of the question – but there were more times than a “few” I really thought I wished I could kill myself. I am over that now with lots of prayers, ( a wonderful God), TIME (an inordinant amount of time), AND pain meds to get managing my pain so I can function and have a little life.

Even with pain meds I still deal with severe nerve pain and “other invisible problems.” I taught fitness for years, but I never thought of the nerves in the body until mine were damaged and some even killed!

As I wrote, some of my disabilities are visible. I have to use a cane. MANY more are invisible to the naked eye. I understand people looking at someone with those invisible disabilities and on pain meds, and think “they aren’t disabled at all!” BS.

DO NOT JUDGE SOMEONE because they are strong enough mentally and physically to “look” like they are fully functional and capable. Would you rather have them whine and cry and be intrusive to YOUR feeling good. You have a right to feel good. I am not going to wear a sign with specifics about my disability and pain.

Good for Brad in continuing his life. That being said, I read that he began mixed martial arts before receiving a settlement of $175,000.00. That is a difficult sport, unless perhaps, he was participating in a very modified program. That is possible. Perhaps in being active and accepting “limits” he helped his body to heal even more in time. That is possible too.

Here is where I stand on this particular subject. I am no one’s judge. No one can jump in my body and feel my pain, nor my motivation to work through constant pain.

Although a part of me says, I am glad he got a settlement. I saw his visible injuries, and he was obviously disabled in some ways, maybe many. I personally know MENTAL injury can take a constant toll on one’s life!

Insurance companies get their money regardless – unless the horrific happens. If he were taking a monthly disability year after year after year, like SO MANY FLAKES and FAKERS do, it would be different. He took a settlement. Perhaps then his tenacious spirit healed him further mentally and physically. I like to think in positive terms. Good for him! At least someone with a history of working and real injuries got something!!!

I find it disgusting that a man with REAL and PERMANENT injuries takes a settlement, agreed upon by the insurance company and himself. and then in their eyes- he should not get better. If he heals any more he is a faker. The healing must stop. Certainly if he is able to participate, working through the incredible pain, and taking heavy duty pain pills, it means he wasn’t really hurt. Come on.

I hope I am right, but again, I am no one’s judge on this planet earth. It is up to each individual how he or she lives life! If you are truthful then you cannot be caught in a lie. If you are honorable your character will excel and the person you are will blossom into something wonderful! If you LOVE, you cannot go wrong!

Have a stellar day. We all have the power to choose how our day unwinds. We have, at least, the power to respond to each thing that happens to us, and that is 100% all the time. I choose onward and upward!

The State of the Union – Huh!

January 23, 2015

Here is the true state of the Union. Money controls because it empowers.  Politicians control because they come under the guise of the “people’s” representatives – and they get fabulous money and benefits.  Those with fabulous money never have to worry about protection, and those with moderately fabulous money will simply hire people to protect them.  Our government has the biggest weapons of course. Those with the biggest weapons always rule.

Let’s give our weapons in and just let the government run everything, and hope the bad guys gave their weapons in too!  No that’s not a good idea – that’s what happened in Hitler’s case.  (If you aren’t familiar with that history, you should brush up a bit.)

If you think people are informed – think again.  The media has swayed this country since the beginning of it.  I spent the last three days reading and studying our Constitution, slavery, etc.…Gosh, my eyes have been opened.  I read different versions – I think I finally read the truth about history.

If you think the common man is educated, find the Jimmy Kimmel show that happened around MLK day, and listen to his interviews of “the common man.”  It is disgraceful. Did you know there was much dissention about creating this holiday? Reagan and MANY people didn’t want to initially, but football labor unions and others…put the pressure on the folks to sway the vote.

It is also disgraceful our government send three representatives to Ferguson for the funeral of a young criminal.  You may not like cops but if in trouble who do you call – ghost busters? I think not!

People like Al Sharpton instigate Trouble with a capital T. The media and anyone looking for fame, no matter what, run to any situation to ensuethe biggest story and the most media possible. Ever hear of editing….

I didn’t start this post with “any intention”, but I am a bit fired up at all the lies told daily to invoke a separation of citizens.  “A house divided falls” – have you ever heard that?

John Perry is an idiot. He sent a “hug to Paris” and had JamesTaylor sing “You’ve Got a Friend.” Throw up. Our pres. was too busy to go to Paris.

Do not be fooled.  State of the Union?  Huh. For all his rhetoric and fluffy speech, I heard these things:  Hail all the supreme leader who won both elections. Did you listen to the speech? Really?

How about this:  “I will NOT let THIS congress endanger the health of our children by turning back the clock on OUR efforts.”  (Translation:  I will veto any bills the republicans try to pass regarding health care- the OUR stood for Democrats. A hand across the table brother.

Already he has his pen in hand to negate anything the congress that the PEOPLE OBVIOUSLY VOTED IN this last election.  He said those words with a connotation I picked up that really said he isn’t going to do anything anyone else wants to do!

“Climate change poses an immediate risk to national security.”

Say what?  (A very well educated friend always said, our records only REALLY go back for a limited time.  Climate has always changed and most people just theorize what’s happening, it’s all theory.”)

“We reject offensive stereotypes of Muslims, lesbians, gays, transgender, and bi-sexual.” (Just whom is obama speaking for anyway?)  A bit of stereotyping, (remember 9-11, and read about today’s terrorists), goes a long way towards prevention!

Personally I like to think I do not judge ANY PERSON, however, I have certain “unalienable rights” to think freely, and to speak – and should without hesitation! Whatever is my own personal set of beliefs, I will speak my mind and not be afraid to say what I believe when asked.  If that is wrong, since I am not a terrorist or killer, or a bigot, then I am just not in America any more!

Speaking of rights – AT LEAST 38, yes CITIZENS of 38 states VOTED NOT to treat same sex marriage like the marriage between a man and woman. Thereafter, slowly, 38 State court judges changed the ruling because it wasn’t fair. Why vote?

Also kind of ticks me off that the electoral vote picks the president…I don’t even know why Californians, or anyone in the far western states votes – makes NOT ONE BIT of difference in the elections.  And this year, because of the lack of boundary on “donations” to candidates – pretty much once again, MONEY RULES, FAIR Play DROOLS!

Talk about the truth.  I’d like to see obama, while smoking his cigarette (YES he smokes), and say: “Actually my really name is Barry, I’ve been trained in Muslim ways, and I am as much white man as I am black man. I married a real black woman…so don’t be racist or judgmental.”    HHHHAHAAAAAAHAAAA.  True, but that is never going to happen. I am not just picking on the swave, Harvard education “speaker” – I refer to LIES from them all!

Let’s give junior college to everyone for free!  What a brilliant idea.  Let’s take motivation to attain goals out of the picture altogether, and just pay billions for those who want to go.  I wonder if that includes illegals, senior citizens, children who were unable to finish high school because they cared for an aging parent or grandparent…etc.  Why should anyone have to work for anything, anyway!  Just let the government use the willing ones work and pay taxes, keep those who have no motivation or like to drink and use drinks – just barely existing and out of the way, and make sure billions are put in the fund to protect the politicians from every stray man and woman LEFT BEHIND.

My friend told me she knows a lady and her husband who escaped to the us fourteen years ago, and neither work.  The man is 50 something and he spends most of his day in the apt. bedroom being depressed, and neither of them know English yet.  However, they are paid by the government and do exist.

He forgot to mention Isis and our other terrorist groups.  He didn’t mention the fact he will veto anything that tries to keep funding away from accepting millions of illegal aliens.  We haven’t enough jobs for citizens, 50% of America’s children are poor, and what we teach these people is that doing something illegal pays off!

Liberties?  Privacy?  For the middle class “folks” (he uses this when he wants to be like a peasant)- give me a flipping break.  Next month there will be drones about your house letting the government know in which room you are standing.

If you say ANYTHING out of what the “text” of those in charge want you to say, LOOK OUT, and if you keep listening to the media – you will be a member of the “dumbing down of America club”.

Exhortion – being forced to pay health insure when you are young and don’t really need it.  Having taxes taken out and never really have a say in anything.  The folks who left England to form a new country were tired of being taxed to death.

As an addendum – did you know the Portuguese were the first to sell slaves from Africa, and Africans were the ones who rounded up and sold their countrymen? Most of Europe and many South American countries joined in selling slaves – a couple of centuries, maybe more, before America joined in.  Even Lincoln would have sent Africans to South America or back to Africa, but he couldn’t figure out the logistics….honest.  I guess as a white person I am sick of taking all the wrap – besides I would NEVER do something like that.  That was then – this is now!  Forgive and forget the past or you will waste your entire life.

If this country is so prejudice why do we have a mullato president? How could Oprah become a billionaire and an actress? Why do America’s Got Talent and  American Idol (Harry Conick Jr. is soooo funny!- I am an idol head again because of the judges! ) allow all races to participate? How do all races participate in music?How come sport teams are made up of different races.  And how in the heck do we all live in peace day by day by day, most days?  That’s not reported, is it!

So let’s do what we can.

Rebel by living a good life following what we believe, loving each other regardless of anyone trying to convince us we don’t. Rebel by being a decent person and a good neighbor, loving our children and other children, and being kind to our pets.

Rebel by saying many prayers and remembering we are all human and just because we don’t get radical doesn’t mean we give in!

REBEL – BE HAPPY!

Flu hits children – Know the symptoms

January 15, 2015

Children and the Flu: This year it is serious. At least twenty-one children are dead from the flu. It hasn’t even hit all the states yet. Part of the reason is carelesness. Do not forget to make children wash their hands often. Not a quick wash, but a thorough wash.

Remind them to bend their elbows and cough in that “cove” if they cough. This year the flu is hardest on the children three and under (and older senior citizens).

If your child has a cough, a temperature, is achy or they have a headache – pay attention. Keep them home and take care of them. Even preschool can be the setting for LOTS of flu transiting from one child to another. .

It may be a bit inconvenient to keep the child home, but think of this – is it worth loosing them because of the inconvenience?

Please be considerate of others and also lessen the illness of your own children by really paying attention and taking care of them. Do not misunderstand. I have three children and I know it is a tireless job and no handbook big enough to cover each child and all that can happen.

Accolades to parents as it is sometimes a thankless job that takes you to the brink of insanity. But the children are our gifts, you will make it through, and then some day just when you least expect it, one of your children will tell you they love you and you are a good parent. Your heart will be full.

God bless you and all the children. Make today child friendly and tell them how proud you are of them and give them a big hug “just because.” We need to share this information with others. Pass the word and prayers!

The Weirdest holiday greeting ever!

December 23, 2014

Is anyone else sick of all the BS that is happening in the USA right now? Itell you what, I sure am! It’s hard to tell where to begin.
1. I have a real problem with obama and his cronies pulling this “racial unrest” crap. I have seen the problem built up in increments, and with obama being a racist (he has always denied his white – he has never mentioned he is mullato) – I find it sickening that he is so ashamed of his white.
2. The young adult killed in Ferguson and those who chanted insited much. Sixty hours of witnesse’, six black people saying he was the problem, a black policemman who was there…and all the media can say is “he was a child-a defenseless child. If you had a huge mad man coming to inilate you, what would your instinct be? Self defense? The media is so f—— twisted. It is terrible for anyone to be killed, but he had just robbed a store and threatened someone.
3. It was terrible a twelve year old was killed,…,people who were frightened called, and he had something that looked like a weapon and was flailing it around…I don’t know the details, but if you don’t want the police to bother you – DON’T PLAY WITH GUNS THAT LOOK REAL threatening people, don’t rob stores, don’t do the crime!
4. The media kisses the ass of obama and the politicians that follow his lead. The real problem is POVERTY. The crime rate in areas of poverty is high – and in black communities the murder rate of black on black is unbelievably high. POVERTY AND all that comes along with it is the problem.
5. Before this stirring of the racial pot, the majority of America was melded and living peacefully as it should be.
6. Let’s take all the money obama wants to help Central American people with and turn it to our own poor communities to help them.
7. I heard something that made sense yesterday. If you get a ticket, or are sited for no driver’s license, etc. just say, “I am not breaking the law by being an illegal immigrant. I am legal, I pay taxes, I work…which offense is worse? I don’t get FINANCIAL HELP when I am sited for breaking the law.”
8. Yes, there are cops who are corrupt. But if you stand the good guys next to the corrupt ones, the good guys would win hands down. These guys began a career putting their lives on the line to keep peace and keep citizens safe. Would it really do any good if cops just slapped a hand and said naughty-don’t be bad? I don’t think so. Here’s an idea: Why don’t all the cops in the USA take a two week leave and see what happens. No cops on the streets at all. Think about that one.
9. Obama, his family, all the political persons (well, 90%) are taken care of for life. No worries. My husband was told not to work more than 40 hours, and even if he did, taxes would gobble up the money. Last time he got overtime he was taxed so highly we decided it wasn’t worth the extra time out of our lives.
10. Our military has to follow “rules of engagement” and in doing so our guys and gals are in serious trouble.
11. Lower the taxes for “we the people” and stop helping so much in countries that hate us.

Our president apologized long ago for America. He is going on a rampage – return one
American and give Cuba three Cubans…one was in jail for murder. Are we worth less?

It’s all about the MONEY, GREED and POWER. Sony may as well have bowed to N. Korea and said, “whatever pleases you.” They didn’t release the movie simply because the were afraid it would cut more into their profits. The invasion hurt them financially and they are simply AFRAID of the financial losses. Good job Sony – let them see we bow down to bullies.

Did you hear about the two innocent policemen that were murdered? One was American Asian, and one Latino American. How about the black high schooler that stabbed a white girl in the eye with a pen, “because she was white”? There are black on white crimes that are just quietly put to the side.

Did you notice how smoothly the border crisis slipped to another crisis, and then another?
It is all planned! Slick, eh? They divert our attention and we go on to the next problem. This has been a tactic for decades – and it works.

I don’t want to ship out families that have been here and worked and raised their children and been a part of communities. I just don’t want the cartels and criminals to have easy access to America.

Consumerism – big brother wants us to buy buy buy. The dumbing down of America is what I like to call it! We sit glued to the computer or our “portable device” and are doing exactly what they want us to do.

Many families have gone from enjoying time together to each preferring to be separate and on the internet so they can make secret plans, watch porn, or write to their hundreds of friends. A house divided falls.

I appreciate many things about the technology, but it is NOT MY LIFE. Did you know the intellect of technology has doubled every year since 1956? This should be a bit terrifying to us all.

I know this post is scattered but there are so many problems and I need to get them out of my head and on paper. It is all lies. Now all those who voted to get some changes made are shaking their heads because the Republican party has already gone back to being just members of the political club.

I know there is a silent majority here in the USA – a strong silent majority. The thing that non-citizens and those out of the United States of Amercia don’t realize is that when it comes down to the bottom of the barrel, somehow that melting pot of people that make up America will pull together and do what needs to be done.

My savior in all this mess – my faith! I am not blind and I am not stupid, I keep in prospective what is real and what is urgent. LOVE EACH OTHER, forgive each other and hold tight to family and friends.

Do not be duped into being stressed out about the holidays, or something that is manufactured by the media, our politicians, and those greedy bastards that have so much control over the peasants.

If I am lucky I probably have 10-15 years left to live on this planet. I intend to use every moment of it remembering what life is really all about! I hope you do to, and you use these moments to to love each other and forgive each other…including yourself!

Kind of a strange holiday greeting, I know. I don’t like mincemeat pie and I don’t like to mince words. Stop being brainwashed by commercials, and stop watching so much news…you will feel so much better!

I am going to take my own advice and probably won’t write again until after Christmas.

God bless and keep you all!
