Do You Want Changes?

August 29, 2016

You may have heard “status quo” during this time of heavily pumped politics. In case you don’t know the definition of it, it means “to stay the way things are”…”keep the current situation the same”.

Apply it to politics. Of course no career politician wants anything to change. This is why some republicans are fighting against Donald Trump so hard. If things change then ALL THE MONEY that goes for their pleasure, the planes, the trips, the expensive clothing, and the perks that go along with being a politician…might be taken away! Things might change and all that makes them want to be career politicians might go away! democrats are concerned too.

I am neither republican nor democrat. I am an American. I am neither conservative nor liberal, but a fine mix of both that upholds my personal beliefs and philosophy. I am neither rich nor poor. I am white and was born into a middle class family (it would be poor now). My son said I was beautiful. I don’t think so.   I believe it was my heart and positive attitude that made me liked by many different types of people – White, Mexican, Black, Asian, American Indian…. whomever I got a chance to share time with was to me, was a human being worth getting to know. I was taught I am NOT the judge of humans. I was born to love God and others.

I was also taught the difference between good and evil, manners, and given the patience to get to know someone before deciding whether I wanted to continue as friends or not. I was taught NO ONE HAS THE CHOICE OF WHERE THEY ARE BORN, WHAT COLOR THEY ARE, and OR WHAT CULTURE THEY HISTORICALLY ARE FROM. NO ONE HAS A CHOICE IF WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE, IF THEY ARE GENETICALLY HEALTHY OR NOT, AND WHAT HIS OR HER PARENTS FINANCIAL STATUS IS! That’s the truth!

Of course we all begin adapting to life reflecting the values and thoughts of our parents, and other family members and those who participated in our lives often. But there is a point wherein we must decide for ourselves what path in life we will take…the high road or the low one.

I have separated from the initial thoughts that made me begin to write this morning. I don’t write every morning “just to write”. I write when I have passion about a subject, or feel it is God-sent, or important enough to take the time to sit still!

This started off with the intent of stating as citizens we have little real choice about anything expect on a personal basis within our minds and choices. We are presented with whichever multi-million dollar candidates “they” (not positive who they are) hand over to us peasants.

So to decide whom to vote for this year for president is simply a choice between one millionaire and the other. A man or a woman who has already been selected for us. for us. Someone who wants to keep the “status quo”, or someone who wants to upset the apple cart and make some changes (that may seem frightening to some individuals, and career politicians, for sure!)

I won’t vote “just because” one of the candidates is a woman.   I am a friend snob and only hang out with people who I believe are quality and truthful. I tried hanging out with “questionable girlfriends” – I couldn’t save them from themselves, and I couldn’t stay out of trouble! I would rather hang out with ME than people I cannot respect. (Doesn’t have anything to do with money or race!) As far as hillary.

I am old enough to remember everything from Tennessee to today, and the clintons are soooooooooo NOT as the media and the way they like to portray them. So she’s out! Her motto should be “I will LIE and DENY, unto death do we part”.

I liked lots about Bernie Sanders, but in the end he sold out.

I am reading everything I can get my hands on about Donald Trump. I do like the “tentative” cabinet he has selected…or at least the one mentioned on line.

The truth is I am favoring Donald Trump thus far. So many are afraid he will be radical and things will “topple”…. I don’t think that is a bad idea. I know there is a silent majority who have been not voting, and hold back about the fact things are not better – they are not better at all!

For as many “accolades” as obama lovers give him (and I really tried the first four years) I have seen a radical increase in racial tensions…. I am old enough to remember that the racial problems for many years have been on the decline until a few years after he actually took office. If you think about it, “tension” in many areas has increased in the last eight years.

I will always be upset with him for not declaring, he is not black – he is mulatto. I have no problem with black! I have NO problem with mulatto! I have two EXQUISITE grandchildren who are a mix of two cultures…. I love their mothers and am proud of them. I will defend them to the death! As well as my mulatto grandchildren – and all those I love! I just think if he were truthful it might have shown he is NOT RACIST against white…he never acknowledges his white!

Enthusiasts listened to him speak and he did speak eloquently. He promised change. People were tired of war and he made promises that sounded as if he would unite the country. Think about it. Do you really see unity within the country?

He did pull troops out of Iraq, but only to loose footing in that county. Strife began again within the borders. All those USA patriots who died, died for nothing.

His accomplishments include releasing long term prisoners; over 500 of them. If you know anyone/or have friends who knows anyone that has been in prison long-term, you know they are changed forever. They are institutionalized. That is not to say some can’t make it, but the majority (statistics show) are still recognizable as a poor sufferer of a system that really doesn’t want changes, and back in trouble  within months, if not days.

In California (I only know about my state in this area) the federal government mandated releases from prisons because they were overcrowded. Well, AB109 has released over 30 people from prison a month in each county, and in my town the crime rate, violence, theft, rape, and a multitude of horrific crimes has increased substantially.

Giving Iran a stack of millions of dollars cash was simply an invitation to critical problems for our children. They did admit it was done about the same time as four people were released! I remember the last releases – for five criminals, we got one traitor!

hillary, as Secretary of State was equally as bad as obama. The discord in the countries she visited is horrendous, and the money she has taken from countries that believe in the abuse of women is substantial.

I hadn’t thought about it for years, but my mama was very interested in politics. At the time I was raising three children and dealing with an abusive husband. She had a scrapbook with all the incidents that the clintons were involved in from Tennessee forward. She told me that they were criminals before I knew anything about them.

Good grief. I didn’t intend to write this book. I just am sharing where my thoughts are and asking that before you cast a vote this November, THINK. STUDY. PRAY.

We really have two candidates…any other good person would not be able to have enough votes to sustain themselves at this point. It is the electoral votes that count anyway. That’s another story. We are a country run by millionaires and billionaires.

I know one thing I don’t want – I don’t want to be a part of the “new world order”. That signs a DEATH warrant for the United States of America – my country. I love being an AMERICAN first (my mutt historical information is secondary in importance.) BTW, I am proud to be an American Mutt.

Remember, THINK, STUDY, PRAY. Use the gift of intuitive feelings. We all have been given this gift. Recognize it.

Addendum:  if you think I slipped and didn’t capitalize names that should have been, please know it is my choice, and I will never capitalize a name of someone I do not respect.

Also, I am not pushing you for one candidate or another – simply expressing MY FEELINGS, and what I know to be true.  God bless and help us all, and all those around the world who are in need.

 

 

 

 

 

 

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!
