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.

……I’m Just saying

July 17, 2015

…………………………..I’m just saying

Statistics can mean something, as long as they are from qualified, and multiple sources. The “small sampling” ones are just advertisements and not representative of anything but people trying to put their ideas into the mind, as if they are a majority. Not so subtle brain-washing. The media does it every day and in every way.

Did a bit of research and these statistics seem to be reputable. Found them quite interesting. By the way, if ever you and I meet and are the types of people who can carry on a conversation without bullying and degrading another’s platforms, I will be happy to share with you my beliefs and philosophy regarding my life. I will not argue on line, nor degrade another’s beliefs.

2015
Current statistics: 321,043,000 million people reside in the USA.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________
There are 770,000 same-sex couples living in the United States.

9 million (3.8%) of Americans identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender.

33 states opposed same sex marriage.

California residents voted three times for no same sex marriage.

Gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender scenarios will be taught in schools.

The Supreme Court decided for all of us, that ALL states recognize same-sex marriage.

.03 percent are transgender.

________________________________________________________________________________________________
36 states opted out of mandatory Obamacare.

The Supreme Court decided, for all of us, Obamacare will be recognized in all states.

8.7 million people will receive a monthly subsidy of $272.00 for their premium.

Working citizens will receive nothing.

The Governor of CA. has just made it impossible for children to attend school
unless they are completely vaccinated. (There was no mention of who will pay for those who are illegal aliens or are unable to pay because of poverty).

The right is no longer a right for parents to accept or deny vaccines.

No matter what your spiritual beliefs, vaccines will be required in CA.

It is now legal for residents of the state of CA. to collect rainwater. (Yes, it actually was illegal).

Californians with water wells on their own land will soon be taxed for usage.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

The votes that citizens in many states do not matter. Anything can be changed by the people who “rule” the laws of the land.

We did not VOTE for the Supreme Court Justices. Those on the Supreme Court have lifetime jobs, with perks of course.

The Supreme Court is the highest court in the nation, so if rule on something, or they say jump, we are forced to ask,
“how high?”.
————————————————————————————————-
The projected cost of the high speed railway to be built is *68 billion dollars – From LA to SF. This is the most expensive
public works project in United States history.
——————————————————————————————–

The cost to repair roads and highways in CA. is 40. million.

To build a desalination plant that provides 50 million gallons of water a day in CA. would cost 1 billion.

We are in our fourth year of drought.

I HAVE AN IDEA!*  I’m just saying…..

Make it so!

June 29, 2015

This day is yours – CREATE a beautiful one for yourself and those around you.

THINK before you speak. Take a breath and it will spark your intellect.

Remember words are sharper than any knife and they pierce the heart.

Take THIS opportunity to tell someone you love or appreciate him or her.

Make these moments of value and the worth of your actions will ultimately return to benefit you!

It always works!

PAY ATTENTION!

April 10, 2015

Yesterday I came within a breath of killing a fourteen or fifteen year old boy. I thank God I was NOT distracted, but was paying attention to my driving.

I was going a safe and legal speed on a street near schools. I was in the left lane. Without warning a boy rode his bike directly in front of my car.

I do thank God I was paying attention or he would have likely been dead, and I would have had an irreparably damaged heart.

It looked like he was going as fast as he could and was doing some sort of maneuver to get across to the other side of the street fast. But I saw his face and immediately slammed on my breaks and turned to the opposite side of the street-the lane nearest the center at the same time. I had to turn. Though my breaks stopped me, if I hadn’t, he would have been hit – he was that close.

I again thank God I did not coming “screeching” to a halt, but my breaks stopped me immediately as I was turning into the other lane.

No one had been coming towards me in that lane, and I only just now realized no one was close enough following me for me to have him or her hit me. I think my swerving was in sync with my turning.

He biked to the other side, obviously shaken. I put my window down and he yelled, “I am so sorry!”

I yelled back, “Thank God I didn’t hit you, but from now on BE CAREFUL. He looked as if he was waiting for me to scream and yell – but I didn’t. I just breathed a sigh of relief and drove on.

So many circumstances were right to leave the boy unharmed, and me not grieving along with his parents.

I felt this was important enough to write as sometimes we all get busy while driving.

I don’t drink, text, or put on makeup and drive. I have talked on the phone and changed my music…both of those are distracting too.

Texting while driving is responsible for over 16,000 deaths and is the number one cause of a teenager driving.

Adults do it too. I’ve seen so many adults talking on phone, eating, texting or doing something other than driving!

So many unnecessary deaths and accidents are caused by not paying attention! Ironically, last week I felt like I hadn’t been doing so, so I wrote a note and put it near my odometer. The note said ‘PAY ATTENTION.”

Racism

March 24, 2015

I am really sick and tired of all this talk about racism in the United States.  I do not see how we can have a Mulatto president (no one ever says this but he is as much white as black, and that is called a Mulatto), a billionaire hostess for television (Oprah), sports and newscasters, movie stars, scientists,athletes, musicians, educators, mayors and other politicians, etc. etc. etc. and be such a racist country!  I am not just talking about black – but Mexican, Asian and all other people originally from a different culture.

When you are born an American or become an American, or strive to become an American – then you are AMERICAN first, with individual “heritage” next = American African, American Mexican, American whatever!

We are a nation of mixed cultures, and if I do say so, whatever combination mixed seems to be quite nice combinations!

KEEP THE PEASANTS divided!  That is what this is all about.  If a people is divided it makes them powerless to have an uprising, or be any real problem for those “in charge” (politicians, bankers, and the fast growing monopolies).

They become just workers. You don’t have to stand united as a people to work 70 to 90 hours a week!

The PROBLEM, as I see it, IS AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN poverty and lack of REAL education.  Poverty causes a multitude of problems.

Do I have answers?  Not really.  Prayers, anything I am able to do within the realm of my world, and perhaps sharing my thoughts with those of you who enjoy my blogs.

I don’t care for Oprah myself, and I have strong reasons for that – but truth be told – I don’t KNOW Oprah and I am no one’s judge! She did rise from poverty and sexual abuse, to a woman with power and money.  It can be done.

Lastly for today, FYI, I am tired of being blamed for everything.  I was born white (actually I am a mutt) and have a mixed heritage. I look white. I had NOTHING to do with what happened over 100 years ago.  I believe in loving and kindness.  I am no man or woman’s judge, and when I “select” people to hang with (and I am particular) – it has NOTHING, ZIP, NADA to do with culture or heritage.  I want to spend my time with people who are loving, kind, curious, intelligent (that doesn’t always mean educated), funny, and very spiritual!

As a little additional factoid – it was the Portuguese who first used slaves from Africa. The people in America were the last to use humans for slaves.  Did you know their own countrymen (Africans) sold the first slaves and many thereafter!  The black man was the first to sell black men!

So lighten up everyone. The deal is to love the heart and spirit- and that comes in many colors!

GOOD MORNING!

October 6, 2014

I believe it is a beautiful day.  Even if I didn’t, I would talk myself into it by creating new brain cell impressions:  It’s a beautiful day.  It’s a beautiful day.  It’s a beautiful day.

It works.  Thoughts become your life.  That’s kind of general, but it is true.  Also the creating of new brain cells is true!  We are a precision and wonderful human machine.  Far better than any mechanical thing!  Believe it!

Someone ask me if I would republish one of my posts, so that is what I am doing today.  If you haven’t read it, I hope you enjoy it.  I have published over six hundred and fifty posts!  Yikes – I must love to write!  Yes, I do.

So here it is.  Enjoy and CREATE a beautiful day for yourself and those in your circle of life.  Time is fleeting so take advantage of every single moment.

Rambling from the heart

Beautiful is a friend who always there for you, even if she should be taking care of herself.
Beautiful is kindness that comes directly from the heart, and is unending for those in need.
Beautiful is a smile that doesn’t have to be pasted on, but one that reflects joy and sincerity.
Beautiful is character that molds itself from life’s experiences, and grows in quality and positive traits.
Beautiful is being able to face someone and look them in the eyes and know they love you too.
Beautiful is faith that is recognized, and credit given to He that paid the highest sacrifice.
Beautiful is genuine motivation to give something in life that shares healing with others.

Beautiful is a word that cannot be fully described, yet you know when you see real beauty because there is a vibrance, and a shining glow that can only be captured with the word beautiful!

Be beautiful  – it’s possible for all – for beauty lies within the heart, so open yours and let your light shine.  When you love, love will come to you bountifully.

Learn to give, and you learn to live!

This photograph may have you wondering.  I will explain.  One day my daughter said her two children were bored.  She got creative.  She let them make a tent from moving a few things, using a few blankets, and a flashlight.  They had a blast and when done invited her to join them.  You can’t see the kiddos, but you can see my daughter’s leg.  Have fun with your children.  As I have said before, time is fleeting.  To finish – at some point, they all pitched in to clean things up.  What a great afternoon!

Recalled Cheese / Mosquitoes

September 2, 2014

In case you haven’t heard, KRAFT SINGLES AMERICAN CHEESE (date 2/20, 2/21 2015) – is being recalled. I know this is something lots of kiddos like, so wanted to let you know ASAP.

Do you know what the biggest killer of man is each year? You are going to hate this (at least I do) – mosquitoes! 2.7 million deaths a year attributed to mosquito bites.

Please get out the “deet” or whatever you KNOW will keep them away, and protect the children and yourself!

Lastly for this short post – serious research has shown that employers do discriminate against people who have been unemployed long-term. They believe the talent and skills atrophy. If you are one of these people get that resume out, refresh it, and start hitting the pavement.

Among the long term unemployed there are higher numbers of depressed people, divorce rates are higher, and so are suicide rates!

Even if you have to take a position that is “less” than you have gotten in the past, just remember working is good for the Spirit, and any money earned is more honorable than money “taken” because of lack of effort.

God bless you and your loved ones. These are tough times around the world, and we need to love one another and practice peace (as best we can)!
