Korea, the President, football and Prayer.

October 3, 2017

MY PERSONAL OPINION:
I think, NO MATTER how you voted, we should try to be open to support OUR president. If I had been a multimillionaire with a beautiful wife and children – the last thing I would want to do is take on on the headaches and trauma’s some presidents are forced to face. He can always be voted out, and thus far, his sending help to Texas, Florida and now Puerto Rico has been commendable.
I have watched, in my lifetime, N. Korea cause MANY problems prior to this. He did not cause the current problems. I do think he should limit his tweets, but it is his way of trying to reach out to people and state his thoughts. Just because he is president doesn’t mean he doesn’t have free speech. (He should refrain from swearing, I think.) I do love the way he doesn’t pussy foot around and apologize for America. Everyone knows you must stand up to a bull or he will walk all over you!
I agree with his stance on honoring the flag, and National Anthem – which represents all those men and women who have been wounded and died to keep our nation free. As a woman I have enjoyed football, but this was NOT about race. I love my freedom. Hence, I will not honor those who besmear the flag or anthem, and disgrace those who have given so much.
I will live without big time football viewing on television or internet, or in person. These multi-million spoiled children need to know when to protest. If they choose NOT to honor America in these ways, that is their right, but stay in the locker rooms as a sign of respect. If you don’t love AMERICA….(she has made you wealthy), LEAVE!
By the way, “the poor will always be with us”. We are born in bodies we do not choose, and in towns and financial conditions we have no choice about either. Racism was NOT born in the USA. It was born in another place, and grew because someone (of color)- chose money over anything else!
Obama was not my favorite president. It wasn’t because he was black, but because during his time I saw racism bloom again, and disdain for our men in blue grow exponentially. Use the word “decisive”, a word the media has sat squarely on Trump, and you will be just following those who’s tongues hang out on every word that is printed or spoken by them. obama was decisive. “Keep your doctor, keep a plan you like…”
With all the talk of “racism” I still see people of color that are thriving in the USA; I still see the murder rate of blacks murdering blacks way above white murdering blacks. Read everything you can get your hands on if you are interested in “finding” the truth. “The truth will set you free……”
I know Americans are relentless in “giving” to causes that help other humans in need. God bless us one and all for doing what we can. It doesn’t matter if you are grocery shopping, or on line or television, peasants are plagued by requests for CASH. May I say again, ANY of these VERY VERY rich sob’s who have millions upon millions, and billions, could all pitch in and help those in need and they would still be rich….and the matters would be resolved-all around the world could be helped. Come on oprah, bill gates, ANY movie talent, congress members, members of the United Nations, george soros (HAHA), george clooney, comedians, football players, and SO SO MANY MORE!
It has been pointed out to me that many “stars” have given. But I did my homework and for these million and billionaires, their gifts amount to WAY LESS than 10% of their worth. To me that is just paying for advertising for each of them! However, I cannot be the judge of others.
It won’t happen. They may donate time to raise money. They may donate a pittance (and to peasants it seems a lot), when actually it is cheap advertising….alas, we can pray, and volunteer, and do what we can…and we will, for our Spirits are rich.
Last thought for the day….”Football players who feel they must protest – please just leave the space until the “honors” are done. Find another way to protest other than dropping to the knee!
Do not drop to the knee as a show of disrespect, or in a misplaced way of showing displeasure for something that wasn’t even at the forefront of the conversation. Get over yourselves!
I reserve dropping to the knee to humbly pray and show my respect to the Greatest Spirit of All.
(addendum: keep in mind when I do not capitalize names it is because that is my way of showing disrespect.)

Following up on president mentioning this last evening…..

July 28, 2016

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

“That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

—————————————–

A history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Neither aiming at originality of principle or sentiment, nor yet copied from any particular and previous writing, it was intended to be an expression of the American mind, and to give to that expression the proper tone and spirit called for by the occasion.[81]

——————————————–

Of course most people think Michelle Obama is wonderful.  I thought she gave a good speech (as did the president – though it was mostly about him).  The one thing I question in her speech was instead of pulling us all together, I think she perhaps put another little “divider” into the speech by saying, “I have two beautiful BLACK daughters.”  I believe we are all intelligent enough that we have noticed.  Would it not have been better just to say, “I have two beautiful daughters.”  I have a beautiful daughter too, but I don’t think I have ever mentioned in a gathering that she is a beautiful white daughter……maybe I am color blind, and just go by hearts.

 

 

 

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.”

A Tad of Negativity – only a tad (small amount)

August 13, 2015

Aren’t you excited? Everything must be okay – isis  (I never capitalize anyone or anything I have no respect for)  must be under control! Why would the president be in Martha’s vineyard playing golf, otherwise.
Is the one year anniversary of the death of a bully, who beat someone up that day (did you see the video), and then stole, and really was the bad one, a celebration or a mourning? The officer was doing his job. I know there are some really good officers, and some corrupt, as within every area of business. (Politics, for instance.)

Let’s go a week without ANY police on duty in the country. What do you think? It would be a good eye-opener for sure.

Another celebration here in CA. If you are a prisoner and you decide you want to be transgender, no worries – it will be paid for completely. Then of course the jail will have to transfer the transgender to an appropriate facility. A judge in San Francisco decreed that law into life.

But let a senior citizen try to live on social security, or pay for their own glasses and teeth (because these things are not covered), and the point of it all becomes mute. Except for the evil laughter of the few who govern us all.

I know we are all supposed to cut down on water. Do you think moonbeam (the governor – what’s his name) does? How about prisoners? You know they have more rights and benefits that senior citizens, many whom who have dedicated their lives to working hard and being a good citizen. Does that make everyone happy….not from what I hear neighbor to neighbor, and in the markets, and all around where the peasants live.

You know why Trump is so popular now – don’t you? You do, I know it. He is not a political mastermind (thank God) – he just knows he won’t back down or take any BS from anyone. He doesn’t have to curtsy for those who donate money to campaigns. He may not be “politically correct” but he is refreshing and I cannot help but like him.  He can’t be bought, and obviously thus far, he can’t be hushed into submission.

Please – I lived through the Kennedy clan rule – think about it before you vote for another Clinton or Bush.  Enough is enough.  I would RATHER have the Donald before either of them – even Donald Duck would do.

Regarding Megan Kelly-she did attack him and it was not a question that was anything but aimed at making him look like a fool. I don’t know any man who hasn’t said something about a woman at one time or another – that doesn’t mean he is a woman hater. Frankly I don’t know any woman who hasn’t said something negative about a man at least once. Comes with the gender differences……..

OH THAT’S RIGHT – a few people complained and now Target no longer has a boys section and a girls section…..every thing is going to all be mixed together to be neutral “to be fair”.

Throw-up, puke, hurl, vomit, yuk, I am so sorry to enlighten these folks – but really (with rare exceptions) humans are born BOY and GIRL, with matching parts. Let’s REALLY confuse the little ones. If they aren’t “different” let’s mix them up so much they don’t know who or what they are – for sure!

There is a bit of boy and girl in all of us!  DUH!  I am a peasant princess but I loved to climb trees and play hard.

I remember in the old movie with big brother – 1986 (written way prior to that) – all men and women had cubicles to work in and they all dressed in a neutral kind of gray color. They all were separated by big brother making sure they were so busy with work and then drinking booze to relax – no relationships were bonded.

Lastly, I just want you all to know I should have copy written the name YEARS ago when I began to write my blog. If you just look up “Relax, it’s just Life” – a man has written a book (think 2012) and has taken the name as his own. Oh well no one REALLY owns anything except their own thoughts and actions.

So OWN yourself today, and as Dan the Man says, CREATE a beautiful day for you and those in your circle of life…be it a small circle or a large one. A small light in the darkness can change everything.  Insist of a great day and small through all the BS…all of it really isn’t important in the long run.  Insist on FUN.  My sis and I used to pretend everything was a Saturday night live skit.

It really does put most things in a better prospective!

Addendum:  I am terrible at using tags and categories…I just seem to go blank when I do that! I know it is important.  I will work at it!  Now a lovely Hawaiian Orchid for your pleasure.

Stem Cell Miracles

August 7, 2015

For years I taught fitness, health, stress management and relaxation techniques.  In hopes of helping people stay vibrant, healthy and happy I put my heart and soul into my work.   I have also spent much of my time writing and doing photography, and worked professionally as a dancer.  I have just published two small books on Amazon.  I hope to share what I learned care giving my mama for ten years, and make the job easier for the giver and receiver.

The past seven years have been really difficult as during that time I had some horrific incidents.  I broke both wrists (my left one twice), and my leg.  I had a total hip replacement and a hysterectomy.   My sister told me if I didn’t do anything (like riding bikes and athletic things) I wouldn’t break anything!  I have always been high-energy and love life.
I still do.

During these healing times, I used every bit of information I shared with others when I taught.  I did not help heal them, but only tried to give what I was given, and really, God was the healer at the core of it all.  I am still using the techniques and “believe” I am better and better every day.

I have two websites (stressmanagementmagic.com and marshajobrien.com – “Relax, it’s just life”.)  Because of circumstances you’ll read below, my writing is limited to sitting for half hour stints at the computer.

My husband is a champion of men.  He works as head shop mechanic and fixes everything for his company – including huge machinery that has been sitting in the sun during our 114-117 temperatures.  After work he took care of all of my responsibilities and me!  He still does! Two and one half years ago I had a fall and broke my back.  He works very hard to support and provide for us.

“Circumstances” took my back to a very serious level and I had a burst compression fracture, and two serious neurosurgeries.  I am now disabled, but not complaining about it…it is just a fact. I am happy to be alive and walking.

Because I am unable to work, as my disability took away my physical health and endurance, I am unable to kayak, do outdoor photography, hike, and play with my eight grandchildren or my dogs.  In other wards it changed my life. But more than that, it has changed my husband’s life forever.
One of my doctors suggested I have my own stem cells “transplanted” to my body to heal my hip  (yes, my other hip needs replacement).  I think I wore the hips out dancing and teaching high intensity aerobics, but I believe my work helped so many people I do not regret one minute of it.

I have done my homework and I ABSOLUTELY want the procedure that helps my body to help itself.  It is not FDA approved, as they are unable to approve the body healing itself.  Surprise, surprise, surprise!  🙂

Because Medicare and AARP won’t cover the procedure, I don’t believe I will be able to do this unless a miracle happens.

It would take longer to heal than a surgery, and no one knows if it will heal me 100% – but I believe it will be amazing, and if it works for me, I could be living proof that stem cell replacement really works.  Innately I feel that it will help many different things happening in my body.

This procedure might be able to help my disabilities that are invisible to others, but plague me every moment of my life.

Stem cell replacement is a major anti-inflammatory. Studies give hope to those with spinal cord injuries (such as myself) cancer patients, and the millions with arthritis. Perhaps it could help not only my children and grandchildren, but also many people! This is just the beginning…..who knows what miracles may come!

As a person who has always believed the body is a wonderful healing mechanism, I dream of being able to get this stem cell procedure.

I only became aware of this website recently, through an acquaintance who suggested my cause was important. I thought it was a miracle to find her and this website. Perhaps this can be the purpose of my life now that my life is so radically changed.
That is my story.  Because my back injuries changed my life forever, I know life can change in a moment.  I know life can’t always be the way I would wish it, but I have high hopes and great expectations.

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.

Celebrate!

July 18, 2015

This is the moment!  CELEBRATE the moment as it is the only guaranteed thing we have.  That statement is not negative, but the truth.

I am not going to allow any media frenzy, personal problem, or anything – usurp the moments of the day.

I see wisps of clouds.  I see a blue sky.  I see these faces upon waking.  My darling husband has already left for work…as you can see, my 5 year old is trying to get past the puppy to say hello.  The puppy wants to be first!

Gosh, and my kiddos are grown with kiddos.  I loved having my kiddos home.  I love my doggies!

AM

Life is the best thing I’ve ever known!

And if you think I couldn’t be raging mad, enveloped with sadness and depression, or flat lined – you would be wrong.  It takes practice to be happy.

Pardon me, I have to go practice for the entire weekend.  NOW SMILE and LOVE YOURSELF by taking care of some “fun” stuff!  Blessings by the ton to you all from a perfect (well, I am far from perfect – hee-hee) stranger.

As my kids say, “I couldn’t be any stranger!”  Wow I found my funny bone this morning.  Yahoo.

Here is a bouquet for you!

……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.

I HAVE AN IDEA!*  I’m just saying…..

Great thoughts to help you manage emergencies and stress

April 28, 2015

This is a wonderful true story I want to share with everyone who enjoys this blog. If you’ve read me before you know I broke my back two years ago, had to have surgeries, and now have some serious permanent disabilities.

I was a fitness trainer, a dancer, and taught stress management and relaxation (thank God). My life was perfect. Now I am working every day creating my new life, and when I read these paragraphs from a deliciously spiritual book, God in You, by Dr. David Jeremiah, I just had to share………

I never knew I had such respect for Thomas Edison.

“It was December of 1914 when Thomas Edison’s great laboratories in West Orange, New Jersey, were almost entirely destroyed by fire. In one night Edison lost 2 million dollars worth of equipment and the record of much of his life-work. Edison’s son Charles ran frantically about trying to find his father and finally came upon him standing near the fire, his face ruddy in the glow, and his white hair blown by the winter winds.”

“ My heart ached for him” Charles Edison said. “He was no longer young, and everything was being destroyed. He then spotted me. And he said to me, @Where is your mother? Find her. Bring her here. She will never see anything like this again as long as she lives!”

The next morning, walking about the charred embers of so many of his hopes and dreams, the sixty-seven-year old Edison mused, “There is great value in disaster. All our mistakes are burned up. Thank God! We can start all over again.”

…………………………….

Each day is a new opportunity to begin again.  I am endeavoring to move onward and upward.  I hope you know that no matter what happens in your lives, you have the choice (100%) of how to respond!  Take a breath, find a fair melding of intellect and emotion, and THEN respond.  You can do these things in short order once you make a habit of doing them.  Now, onward and upward for you too!  It’s much more fun than you think to respond in a manner that knocks people off their feet.  “Gosh, look how great his or her response was!”  Gain respect and have a better life.

God bless you!

Happy Easter – beyond the “frenzy to buy”……

April 5, 2015

Corporations and the media have certainly gotten an A+ when it comes to the celebration of Easter. The chord they stuck was with children.

Why how can you NOT decorate eggs, buy Easter toys and decorations, and have Easter egg hunts and candy?

Clearly – once a child is old enough to “want” what they see, manufacturers make sure they see it all!

I understand Easter originally began as a holiday that was imported by German immigrants. Today some people tell children that if they are good the Easter bunny will bring them a basket or treats. Some people have their children leave carrots for a hungry bunny who hops all over the world.

Easter is second only in candy sales to Halloween! Dentists must love the holiday!

Personally I wish I had never been sucked into the realm of all of it when my children were very young. It set the stage for reoccurring celebrations.

Some parents compare the eggs with the resurrection. I find no such comparison.

I don’t always go to church, so I don’t make a point of going to church “just on special holidays”. But if that is your standard, I make no judgment one way or another!

I just hope for anyone who believes Jesus is the only begotten son of God, that they never forget He sacrificed His life so we could share eternity with Him.

For some it is a difficult concept to understand…the “why” of it all still remains rather a mystery. But I am a believer. There are some things I simply do not question but leave to simple faith.

I have found myself in tears thinking of the pain and the horror He lived through, and His sacrifices for His children. Sometimes I just smile knowing that through it all, we will be loved and sharing eternity with this precious son of God.

.Celebrate uour faith. Celebrate the possibility of faith. Celebrate the moments you have to live this day. Celebrate love and our Creator.
