Anyone of the feminine gender you care about? Are you a woman? Read on……

January 30, 2012

This is REALLY important if you care about your daughters, wife, girlfriend or simply a friend of the feminine gender. Do not dismiss the power of the media. I had an attempted rape years ago, and I really believe much of what is presented to us is an open invitation to violence against women.

Please take time to watch this short trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6gkIiV6konY (I have tried several times to make this a link you just click on, but somehow I can’t seem to do it!) I wish I was more savvy about using this wonderful way to share and learn…..sorry! 🙂

Look at your young daughters and sons and remember you can talk to them all day, but what they really learn from is what they see!
Thank you for taking time to watch the video.

Marines in trouble

January 14, 2012

I know this post is going to cause some problems- but I want to post this as a human being occupying the world, not an American, not an Arab, not a Chinese, not anything but a human being.

Right now the media is slicing the Marines who “relieved” themselves on the bodies of deceased enemies, into tidbits as horrible persons, horrific acts, bad, bad Marines. Excuse me. As a human being, if someone hurt my family or loved ones, and I was able to find and punish them, I might “relieve” myself by doing the same thing – if I were a man. As a woman, I probably would not do the same thing.

These MARINES are trained to hunt down and kill the enemy, as all soldiers of the world are. Have you not heard of someone beheading a dead enemy? Have you not heard of horrific things done with the bodies of enemies by all “troops” in the world? These men are YOUNG men, TRAINED to hunt down and kill…..PERHAPS in that mentality, you would piss on the bodies of the enemies.

Is it politically correct? Maybe not, but review the people who have raped and killed and are now treated for being “criminally insane”…
they are given treatment and forgiveness for their actions. Think about the child molesters who are given minimal sentences and are let out to roam the streets.

Can we not step into the shoes of the Marines and NOT follow the media by condemning these men? If an Iranian (simply as an example) killed the enemy, would the men perhaps do the same? Or worse? Who knows….

But if we condemn the young men we train to KILL to protect us – what are we doing? Think about it. It’s not a perfect world, and these are humans WE’VE trained!

Have mercy and understanding. These are men in their 20’s and 30’s and we’ve expected them to kill to keep the peace. Come on…..If it were your son and he was forced to kill….would you condemn him?

A Christmas Wish – Please

December 22, 2011

I have written over 500 posts and hopefully I know I do have some regular readers. I have tried to publish informative, true, funny, and important posts. I have answered almost every response, and still correspond with many of you. Today I have a request. It would actually answer a Christmas prayer for me.

My son lives in Morocco with his Moroccan wife, and their beautiful 5 month old baby. He has tried to bring them to the USA, but new laws (don’t know if it is just in Morocco, or everywhere,) that do not allow him to bring his family unless he comes alone for 6 months and works-or he has substantial money. He does not want to miss his child’s life; nor does he want to leave them.

He is earning a living by teaching and he is a fine writer. He has entered a contest which is very important in his life, and all he is asking is 5 seconds for a vote. Though
I do not understand the title – I am sure the book will turn a great tale. He is a kind and decent man and Needs this wish to come true. PLEASE take 5 seconds – such a small amount of time – and give him a vote. You don’t even have to read the first five sample pages. I will guarantee it is not trash and he is worthy of a wish come true. It’s not much to ask…..pretty please! He writes a fabulous travel log, and is working hard for his family (as anyone with love, will do. 🙂

This is is baby. Sophie

She needs daddy to be able to earn money at what he does.

This is how you do it. Go to: http://curiosityquills.com/giveaways-contests/nano-virtuosos-competition/round-two/

You don’t even have to read the five pages…just trust me, it will be good. Vote for
the first five pages of “Douchebags, Fag and Hags” (I KNOW- the title is strange, but he is a good man and I trust his works…) Don’t vote for anyone else as it will cancel his vote. Please respond to my request, and I will continue to respond to any thoughts, questions or needs you have! Pretty pretty please.

http://curiosityquills.com/giveaways-contests/nano-virtuosos-competition/round-two/

THANKS, and have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS (politically correct or not!). God bless you and all your family.

66 Year old Woman Kills Intruder

October 22, 2011

This is a true story – AND this woman is recently widowed, and is my friend!

You may have heard that some prisoners in California are getting an early release from prison because our prisons are “too crowded”. Well, they are getting early releases in my town, Redding. Our county jail is releasing some inmates early…..and many are going out and committing more crime; sometimes within hours of their release.

This man had been released from the Shasta County jail, the morning prior to the shooting after he was arrested Thursday on suspicion of obstructing a public officer, and trespassing – both misdemeanors.

Capt. Don Van Buskirk, the jail’s top administrator, said the man, Theis, was released before posting $6,000 bail because the jail was at capacity. Because jailers have limited bed space, every day they’re required to release those they determine to be the least-risky inmates in order to stave off overcrowding. Obviously this wasn’t a great choice.

This is what happened. My comments will be ALL CAPS and BOLD.

“A 66-year-old woman who shot and killed an intruder early this morning in south Redding after he tried to break into her home appears to have been justified, prosecutors say.The Shasta County coroner’s office identified the man this afternoon as Jesse Edward Theis, 37, of Redding.

Donna Hopper had first fired warning shots at the suspect after she was woken by the sound of him trying to break into her Branstetter Lane bedroom window just before 4 a.m., Shasta County Chief Deputy District Attorney Josh Lowery said.”

SHE HEARD SOMEONE YELLING, “LET ME IN” AND BANGING ON THE FRONT DOOR. SHE STOOD TO THE SIDE IN CASE HE HAD A GUN AND ASKED WHO IT WAS. “IT’S JEFF”, THE STRANGER SAID. DONNA WAS ON THE PHONE WITH 911 AT THE TIME AND STAYED ON THE PHONE THE WHOLE TIME. THAT IS PART OF WHAT SAVED HER FROM BEING SUSPECT OF ANYTHING OTHER THAN SELF-DEFENSE…THEY HEARD IT ALL.

SHE ACTUALLY TOLD HIM SHE DIDN’T KNOW HIM AND TO GO AWAY. SHE TOLD HIM SHE WAS GETTING HER GUN. SHE DID.

She shot him when the suspect came back and tried to climb inside the window a second time, Lowery said. “He meant her lethal harm,” Lowery said. An official determination won’t be made until the DA’s office has a chance to review police and autopsy reports, Lowery said. An autopsy will likely be performed Monday.
passing, both misdemeanors.”

WHEN SHE RETURNED WITH HER 38 SHE TOLD HIM AGAIN TO GO AWAY. HE DIDN’T.
SHE SHOT TWO ROUNDS THROUGH THE WINDOW.

HE RAN AWAY, CRUISED BY THE BEDROOM WINDOW, AND THEN CAME BACK. HE COULD HEAR HER TALKING TO THE POLICE AND TURNED AND LUNGED FORWARD AND SHE SHOT. SHE SAID HE HAD RED HAIR AND A BEARD, BUT SHE DIDN’T LOOK AT HIS FACE, BUT SHOT DIRECTLY AT HIS WHITE T SHIRT. SHE THOUGHT HE GRABBED HIS CHEST, AND HE WENT DOWN.

A $5,000 bench warrant was issued for Theis on Oct. 7 after he failed to appear in Shasta County Superior Court on indecent exposure and resisting or obstructing a peace officer charges, according to electronic court records.

Court records also show that Theis was sentenced in September 1998 to three years in prison after he pleaded guilty to possession of marijuana for sale.

Additionally, he pleaded no contest in 1994 to the unlawful taking of a vehicle, and pleaded no contest in 1993 to burglary, according to court records.

Redding police investigator Jon Poletski said today that Hopper called 911 during the first break-in, and the man ran off. He came back a few minutes later.

While police were heading to the home, Hopper called 911 again saying she’d shot him with a handgun, Poletski said.

There were what appeared to be two bullet holes in a window to the right of Hopper’s front door. The home’s front yard is surrounded by a knee-high chain-link fence.

“She shot from within the house as the suspect was attempting to gain entry from the outside,” Sgt. Al Mellon said a few hours after the shooting. “My understanding is at least one of the rounds went through a window. My understanding it was a bedroom window.”

NOPE. IT WAS THE LIVING ROOM WINDOW.

Theis was shot at least once in the chest, Melon said. He wouldn’t say how many rounds were fired.

The Redding man was on her front lawn when officers arrived. They tried to give him emergency medical care, but he died before being taken to the hospital, Poletski said.

Police say just a few minutes before Hopper called 911 the first time, a Wolfe Security guard working at Roger Funk Cars at 5460 Westside Road called 911 saying he’d confronted a man at the car lot. The man ran off.

That suspect reported by the security guard appears to match the dead man’s description, police said.

“Based on the information we had, it was completely random,” Mellon said.
Hopper was home about five hours after the shooting, but she declined a request for an interview Friday morning.

Two women who were visiting Hopper this morning said their friend was still pretty shaken. They also declined to be interviewed.
The shooting rattled neighbors in what they described as a normally peaceful neighborhood.

“Five years ago somebody’s car that wasn’t locked” was broken into “but other than that … it’s really quiet,” said Lisa Tullis, 30, whose apartment backs up to Hopper’s home. Tullis, her husband and two children have lived in the neighborhood for nearly eight years.

Tullis did not hear any gunfire and was woken by the glare of police and ambulance lights. Despite the shooting, she still feels safe.
“He’s dead. It’s not like he could come back,” Tullis said. “That might not be a nice thing to say. … I am worried more for her — just how she is doing.”

Tullis’ neighbors Brandon and Sarah Brackett have lived in the complex for two-and-a-half years. The Bracketts also were woken by the emergency lights.

Brandon Brackett said he saw somebody put a blanket over a body. He initially thought somebody had suffered a heart attack and was being taken to the hospital.

Sarah Brackett heard what she thought was a knock on her door before she woke up. She wondered if it was shots being fired that she actually heard.
“We have never had any issues; it’s been really quiet,” Sarah Brackett said.

The Branstetter shooting is the second time this month a Redding woman faced off with someone who had broken in. On the evening of Oct. 11, 40-year-old Christopher Morgan Ward was arrested after he broke into a West Street woman’s home while she was in the shower, police said.
The man ran off, but neighbors grabbed him. He managed to break free and began hopping fences and running through backyards, police say.
Ward was on methamphetamine at the time, police said.
Van Buskirk, the jail’s administrator, said Ward was released the next day, also because of overcrowding.
Law enforcement officials say the two cases aren’t related.”
——————————————–

You never think it can happen to you. Think again. Have a plan.

Donna is pretty shook up. They took her to the police station in her slippers and pajamas and robe. She is a spiritual person who never thought she would kill someone. However, if she hadn’t, there is a very good chance she would be the one at the morgue.

There is a strange irony to this sad story…but that is between friends.

How to “materialize” money

October 29, 2010

FACTS:
1. To date the USA has spent 55 billion dollars to rebuild Afghanistan.
(Hmmm. What about the USA’s needs?)
2. There are 11 million illegal immigrants in the USA. (If you think this has no cost to the USA, think again.)
3. The federal government is going to initially spend 2.4 billion dollars on high speed trains. (Got to keep up with China – here’s an idea: let’s bring all the work we shove their direction back home, and we will support our citizens, and then they won’t have the profit margin to keep building their high speed trains!)
4. Since Nancy P. has been “in charge”, the amount of money spent is 5 TRILLION dollars.

So where does the “How to materialize money” enter this post? I am just asking…..does anybody know how to do it, because to keep paying for all these things, the government is going to have to know how to do it!

Did you see obama on the Daily Show? J. Stewart was on a roll….he called the president “dude”! I actually liked him.

Don’t worry about it. YOU CAN’T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT ANYWAY –
EXCEPT MAYBE, VOTE for REAL change…..otherwise, have a wonderful evening!

California Governor’s Election…

October 26, 2010

DO NOT VOTE for Jerry Brown (that is my opinion). If you are not old enough to remember his last stint as governor of California – I will tell you I am. Remember, I am not Republican or Democrat – I simply KNOW from seeing the horror that was Jerry Brown the first time he was governor. For eight years he lied. He was a TERRIBLE governor – and the people paid – literally! That is all I have to say about that.
————————
As I’ve said before I am a political atheist. Yes, I do vote, but I reiterated, I am not affiliated with a particular party. It really makes me mad that the president of ALL citizens (Republican, Democrat, or whatever), is spending taxpayers dollars to promote the Democrat party. That to me is really not right. Does anybody out there have any idea of the cost to the taxpayers?

Just another poor representative of ALL citizens, by a non-bipartisan president…..ha
—————————
Big brother doesn’t have to knock – he’s already “in the house”. There was a teamster work building a stage for an obama rally, who was wearing a Bush hat and tee shirt, when he was told: Turn the tee shirt inside out and take off the hat….he didn’t, and was fired!

He does not blame the obama team (to be clear) – but the teamsters! Ironically, the “Bush” that was represented was the aircraft carrier that his son has been deployed on for three individual tours-I am not certain where, so I won’t presume to say, but I did hear the man tell the story himself, so I know it is true.
————————-
I heard these words on a television show (Channel 10), as I was looking for mindless humor to watch: something about a woman, a guy said “…..you have to kiss a pussy’s ass”.” I am sorry, but this is regular tv at 9:50PM . I am angry that crap like that is on all the time now. I am not big brother (or sister), but have we, as a people, forgotten who we are and decent words and behavior?
Silly question. Sickens me though.
——————————–
One thing I think television teaches the viewers is to trust no one, and to argue about almost anything. That’s why the race card has been brought up in the election. “A house divided falls.”
——————————
Enough of this rattling. Have a wonderful evening. I will. My hubby can’t work tomorrow due to rain, so we are going to enjoy it while we can.
Blessings to you all. Enjoy the moments – they are fleeting!

The BANKS are royally Screwing us AGAIN

September 19, 2010

I am NOT a mathematician, but one of the good things about using a computer is that you don’t have to be, to get the figures you may need.

Just for fun (I don’t think it was for me to get pissed off) I decided to do a bit of multiplications.

My husband works out of town because the unemployment in our town is fifteen percent. That is just the number of folks who have unemployment coming- doesn’t count those who don’t qualify.

Today he needed more cash than his normal “weekly pittance” he allows himself; he actually doesn’t even get to see his check as it’s deposited on line and before too long, it’s all gone to pay bills.

Anyway, because our local bank doesn’t have a branch where he is, it was necessary to pay ATM fees. Bank of America where he got the cash charged $3.00. Our bank charged $1.50, so the total to get his money was $4.50 for one transaction.

It got me to thinking. There are 310,281,438 people in this country as complied by the 2010 census. Let’s just use REALLY modest figures….. probably way low!

If just 150,000 people needed money in the same scenario, just 300 days out of the year, the total money coming in to the two banks would be $229,500,000.00!! That’s pretty eye opening to me.

I think the number of people who need to get money this way would actually be much higher – and most likely every single day of the year.

Let’s see – citizens bailed out the banks and the middle class has vaporized. Foreclosures have never been higher and unemployment is higher as well.
My husband and I have been struggling and kept our credit scores very high. We have never been late on a payment, and he is working. We have tried to refinance our home three times and have been told – we don’t qualify! We have to be late, or in foreclosure. Kind of takes the motivation out of being responsible citizens.

A very honorable mortgage lender told me, that the banks are not refinancing much at all now. Aren’t we glad we bailed them out so they could, once again, say?

BEND OVER, THIS WON’T TAKE LONG!

Think I’ll just take a breath and enjoy the company of my beloved husband this day and a half he is able to have off work and spend time at home.

Oh yes, almost forgot, looks like he’ll be laid off at the end of the month.

Quran, Infrastructure and Refinance Horror

September 8, 2010

Did you know there are several different publications of the Holy Quran? Have you read even one of them? No? I haven’t either. I’ve read the Bible and thoroughly “get it”. I haven’t read the Quran because I am not of the Islam faith. I think this idiot that declares God has spoken to him is nothing but an instigator who now loves the publicity.

If he were truly a Christian he would know in the Bible it says “Each man must choose”; he would also favor the forgiveness and love Jesus showed….he would be a man of peace.

His church is a total of FIFTY people. He DOES NOT represent AMERICA.

“It is the duty of Muslims to react,” said Mohammad Mukhtar, a cleric and candidate for Afghan parliament.
“When their holy book Quran gets burned in public, then there is nothing left. If this happens I think the first and most important reaction will be that wherever Americans are seen, they will be killed. No matter where they will be in the world they will be killed.”

So there it is. A nat’s ass of a man who calls himself a Christian is instigating violence all over the world because of his stupidity. Who will suffer? The INNOCENT PEOPLE that always suffer…..

Just as I believe the Muslims should show “respect” and build elsewhere than at the 9/11 sight, I think Jones should show respect and back off of burning the Holy Quran.

He is NOT my representative of Christianity, nor of my beliefs. He is ONE MAN and FIFTY people – for the sake of millions he needs to be stopped somehow…
—————
obama, wasn’t the first offering of billions of dollars given to the banks and who knows where else (I understand there are still unspent billions) – supposed to include money for infrastructure projects?

Of course obama was talking to unions about another fifty billion dollars to stimulate the flailing economy and repair highways and railways (what about bridges and levees?). They donated billions to get him into office and this is part of their payoff. What happened to the last stimulus money and jobs?

A world class train to keep up with Europe? How about food on the table?

I have an idea. Let’s bring all the jobs that are in India, the Philippines, etc.etc.etc. home. It would be employment for many Americans. Let’s insist manufacturers leave China and Mexico, and other countries, and come home to make things in America.

I am so sick of picking up ANY object and seeing the “made in China” – a reminder that almost everything is made in China. Don’t dead dogs, paint on cribs that make infants sick, toys that are toxic, etc. etc. say, “Made in China is crap”.

I am tired of NOT being able to understand an AT&T operator because the call is routed to India. I am NOT opposed to having a difficult time understanding someone who is from India, but let it be AMERICANS that hold the jobs….India’s citizens IN AMERICA.
——————–
Here it is. The last complaint of the day.

My husband has been working out of town for 1 1/2 years in order for us to exist. We pay two rents. We pay our bills on time and our credit scores reported from all three agencies are between 789 and 800. That’s very, very good.

We WERE middle class Americans. We have never been late on a mortgage payment. We tried to get a refinance at the incredible interest rate that is happening now. Guess what?

Because of the foreclosures and folks having to sell cheaply just to get something from their home they can no longer afford – WE DON’T QUALIFY. Our appraisal
(because of the activity of the homes surrounding us) is too low. We are dead in the water.

So WHY are we working so hard to be good citizens? I am not sure. The people behind us only pay $80.00 because they are in HUD housing….they party all the time and get drunk and wasted, and get medicade and food stamps. Yahoo.

I also find it sickening that EVEN AFTER heart surgery or any medical service given to those on medicade, they still are allowed to smoke!

Here are another couple of ideas:
Drug test those applying for HUD housing. Make it a stipulation that if anyone has a medical problem that can be caused by smoking – they can only get the service if they quit doing it.

It all makes me feel frazzled!


——————-
Hmmmm. This week my husband and I are rethinking our lives. We are not criminals or evil people. We are good people – but something has to change. We are throwing away our time together working for NOTHING..
we pay illegals, prisoners, users, indigents, and drug users. What is wrong with this picture????

Can you relate?

Phew. Time to reheat my morning coffee, step out into the yard and count my real blessings…love, health, a cool morning, and hope!

I vow to find humor somewhere in the day and I know it will also help to get me back to my old self!

Feels good to release my thoughts from festering within.

Remember: No matter what happens or what you fear, you have the CHOICE to create each moment of your life.
Choose carefully as there is no guarantee of how many moments any of us have left.

Oh, and remember to vote. I am a political atheist, but I want REAL change…yes I do!

INSANE Florida pastor

September 7, 2010

This INSANE pastor who plans to burn the Holy Quran is just that……INSANE! He DOES NOT represent the voice of Americans. We honor the right to worship freely and his actions are TOTALLY NOT accepted, nor endorsed!

Whatever he does is NOT approved of by one single person I know or have discussed this tentative action with…….he is a total disgrace to what he calls his form of Christianity. We are fighting with Muslims in Afghanistan, and truly endorse FREEDOM of religion.

The problem is that this country is based on the rights of individuals to do what they choose-but the bias media only reports what is inflammatory. Please pass this on to as many people as you can! The idiot would have a cow if someone threatened to / or did, burn the Holy Bible. I am a world Christian and it sickens me to hear of his ridiculous actions.

We have many Muslims in this country and anyone who does something like this is most likely less than a small fraction of a percent in radical judgment. Unbelievably ridiculous. If you don’t agree with the Holy Quran or Muslim beliefs – as decent human beings we need to accept the right each human has the right to choose what they believe. I would bet this jackass hasn’t even read the book! What happened to honoring and respecting others rights? He is an INDIVIDUAL.
He DOES NOT speak for the people!

For any Muslims reading this – please do not think this man speaks for a majority by any means. He is an idiot!

Who is REALLY the “black” person?

August 6, 2010


You tell me. I have no problem with black / or white – I just wonder why obama can’t just say – “hey, I represent two peoples – the blacks and the whites”…oh sure. I
just forgot his 20 years of “church” training.

Did you read this article? Elena Kagan tied to Obama’s birth certificate……
Hmmmmmm
– think there is a reason she was selected?

I have no problem with “personal choice” – but my bitch about the overturning of proposition 8 in Ca. and the Arizona law is this: Do the voters no longer count?
The judge in Ca. is openly gay. His verdict went against TWO individual votes on the proposition wherein millions of voters decided NO! The majority of Arizona’s LEGAL citizens are for the checking of those that might be here illegally.

So many countries in the world ABSOLUTELY won’t let you step into the country without checking…..a terrorist can now just go to Mexico and enter illegally.

Next – This week 19,000 more filed for unemployment. Over 40 million unemployed and foreclosures still increasing and obama’s wife takes a trip that costs the taxpayers about $75,000.00 just for the plane. Add in security, etc.etc.etc. and poor taxpayers are footing the bill. Can’t find out if she’s paying for the 40 close friends that are with her.

Did you know mortgage rates have dropped to 4.4 percent? We tried to refinance but with excellent credit, and not being behind in payments – the best we could find was
5.6 percent and a $4,000.00 fee.

China is working on a bomb that can be sent from land and directed to a carrier, and will penetrate the entire ship – thus sinking it. This is really in the working and a real concern….but along with suitcase nukes, terrorists allowed in with a red carpet, economic woes – social security working in the red, and cuts coming for medicare,
what difference does it make.

I heard one state has declined obama health care and is talking about seceding from the Union. Meanwhile obama continues his touring and what?

I think the only thing we have control over is our power to pray (I’m praying for the sweltering heat to drop for the scorching souls living in it)- and our power to stay positive and keep the world around us upright and honest. Don’t forget to keep the love alive!

Did you hear social security will be running in the red for a few years? I want to know what happened to the money that has been collected every payday from citizens.

I feel better. How about you?
