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!

Inaugration , money, poverty and hope

January 20, 2013

Since the inauguration is today, I thought I would bring up a few controversial things to ponder.  First let me say that I did relax all day and all evening, said prayers, enjoyed the beautiful day, and regenerated as best I can with this compressed fracture in my back.  Here goes:

1.  Many people I know swear they won’t vote next year as the election was decided even before anyone west of the middle of the USA got to have a vote counted…the electoral system.

2.  I don’t know why all the inaugural fuss – obama has never stopped being president!  Why not just donate the (minimum estimate) of thirteen million, six-hundred and seventy-five dollars to the Red Cross.  Why actually we could not send Egypt the billion plus in “aid” and perhaps do some of form of REAL help for the working people, and for people around the globe!

3.  Perhaps a twenty million dollar vacation to Oahu is a bit pricy considering Michelle alone spent ten million on vacations, and the president took forty-seven vacation days last year (those costs not included).

Come on, it really is a travesty when I can drive to town and see people with signs on every corner, and a few days ago, this woman. 


Is this the “new America” – I pray not.  I love my country.

God bless all those in real need in the USA and all around the world.

Now perhaps would be a good time to take a breath, say prayers of gratitude for all the small blessings as well as the large ones, and send a prayer to all those in need.

Now I offer two flowers for you to remember we always have hope and perhaps “the spring” of a new time will come upon us.

God help and bless us all!


State of the Union

July 14, 2012

“Oh once in a while I see a homeless person on the corner.  It’s so sad”, I’d say.  I would say a prayer, donate what I could, fix a lunch to take to them, or share water with them on a hot day.

Now it’s become common to have them on every other corner, and all ages.  Something has to change here in the USA.

Is this the State of the Union for the future of our children?

The TRUTH about ILLEGAL border crossing

July 17, 2010

I could not resist posting this as it pinpoints the problem. My son spent two years legally getting his Filipino
wife into the country – for all those who do it legally, the illegals are making a mockery of them. Bravo to
Arizona’s governor. It’s only right to “check” questionable people. Do not know the author, but I checked and the information is correct. Self-explanatory.
Subject: US Versus Them–Border Crossing

If you cross the North Korean border illegally: you get 12 years hard labor.

If you cross the Iranian border illegally: you are detained indefinitely.

If you cross the Afghan border illegally: you get shot.

If you cross the Saudi Arabian border illegally: you will be jailed.

If you cross the Chinese border illegally: you may never be heard from again.

If you cross the Venezuelan border illegally: you will be branded a spy and your fate will be sealed.

If you cross the Cuban border illegally: you will be thrown into political prison to rot.

If you cross the U.S. border illegally you get:

* a job
* a drivers license
* social security card
* welfare
* food stamps
* credit cards
* subsidized rent or a loan to buy a house
* free education
* free health care
* a lobbyist in Washington
* billions of dollars worth of public documents printed in your language
* the right to carry your country’s flag while you protest that you don’t get enough respect
* and, in many instances, you can vote

COME ON NOW – admit we need to do something – you think?

The President’s words, Bret Bair, Barbara Boxer, and my thoughts on this big fat mess!

March 19, 2010

FIRST LET ME SAY THIS: I am a political athiest. I vote but I belong to no party. I think the system is corrupt and ninety-nine percent of politicians are corrupt. These are my thoughts simply as a human who has lived long enough to have seen our government in action over and over again. I wish I could be more positive about this.

I am REALLY rushed this morning so if there are typos I apologize right now. Also, if you disagree with the facts I’ve written or have your own opinions about all this, I would LOVE to hear them!!!

Obama: “I don’t know where you get the notion it’s one-sixth of the economy.” (then in the net breath he said,)
“Yes, it’s one-sixth of the economy, but…..”
Obama: “The vast majority of people will be able to keep what they have because they’re getting’ a better deal…”
Then what is the nearly trillion-dollar bill about, and why do they have to VASTLY reduce Medicare for the elderly? Why will we be taxed for ten years and yet the program won’t “activate for four years,) I am a bit confused.
Even if you are liberal REALLY check out the Bret Bair interview with the president.

I love the way when obama “talks to” the people he drops his correct diction to get folksy – such as: “gettin”, “fixin” and “loosin”. In his interview with Bret Bair he didn’t directly answer one question; using debating tactics he side-stepped around and went into a blather of words. He kept saying “let me finish my sentence,” but what I noticed was he wouldn’t let Bret finish a question, really…he just kept “talkin”.

I loved the fact that if families earning under $88,000.00 a year had a hard time paying for the insurance or the fine if they don’t get it, our corrupt government would kick in a “supplement” to help their deficiencies. Where does that money come from?

Here are some interesting numbers. There are 304,059,724 people in the USA (not including illegal immigrations – whom by the way, often get medical help, food help, and more – but they don’t file income taxes. The census bureau’s form for this year doesn’t even ask if you are a citizen or not…

Out of 133 million income tax filers (yes 170,059,724 don’t file) 40 million of those filing DON’T pay taxes, but often get refunds. So that leaves only 93,000,000 who pay ALL THE INCOME TAX…..hmmmm. I think I know many of these hard work peasants. I think I am one. That’s a pretty heavy burden with all the job losses and foreclosures, and Wall Street and the banks keep on ticking on with multi-million dollar bonus packages!.

I wrote Senator Barbara Boxer my thoughts about the health care fiasco. This was her response. This is, I am sure, a form letter for all of us peasants who are just too stupid to be written to in an intelligent manner. So let’s be condescending and reiterate what all the politicians always say:


All this letter says to me is blah, blah, blah.

“Dear Mrs. O’Brien:

Thank you for writing to me about pending health care reform legislation. I appreciate hearing from you.
There is widespread agreement that we must reform our health insurance system, which is a huge financial burden on our families. The status quo is no longer sustainable. Thousands of Americans lose their insurance every day while thousands more are denied coverage. If we do nothing, 45 percent of an average family’s income will go towards health insurance premiums in 2016. And without action, Medicare will be broke by 2017.
On February 25, 2010, President Obama held a summit on comprehensive health insurance reform. I was pleased to see members of both parties participate in this frank and forthright exchange of ideas.
I strongly believe that we must seize this opportunity to move forward on health care reform, and I hope that we can. I will continue to fight for health care reform for Californians and all Americans.
Again, thank you for writing to me. Please feel free to contact me again about this or other issues of concern to you.

Barbara Boxer
United States Senator”

DON’T YOU LOVE THIS? I don’t want to go to her website and fill out another form. Wouldn’t an email be simpler? :☺

Please do not respond to this message. If you would like to comment on legislation, please visit my website and use the correspondence form at


My gut level feeling is we will be “screwed and tattooed” if Obama and Biden and their cronies manage to pull this off.

Medicare will be depleted of millions and millions of dollars, we WILL BE TAXED HIGHER TAXES (for ten years – though the implementing of the program won’t start for four years!) and from what I’ve heard – the almighty health care won’t be available for four years!

Excuse the hell out of me – “ALL AMERICAN FAMILIES WILL BE REQUIRED TO GET HEALTHCARE, AND IF THEY DON’T THEY WILL BE FINED”. How can you fine someone who has lost their job and possibly their home?

I want Obama, Senators and Congressmen to have the same plan the peasants will be offered. By the way – what about the care of indigents and illegal aliens?

I don’t feel a bit badly about the president putting his trip off anyway. He was going to Indonesia(where he lived as a child) – to enjoy celebrations of him. What was the reason citizens would be paying for the Australia trip?

Did you see the woman whom the president was dedicating his trip to support the bill? She has cancer and her insurance will no longer cover her. HOWEVER – she is being treated in one of the best cancer care hospitals in the USA and will not be charged for her care. (I am HAPPY for her), but I thought Obama was there to stand up for her not being able to get care because of no insurance.

It’s all such a bunch of bolony! The only change that will happen if it passes is that you and me, our kids, and grandkids will be paying forever on this with higher taxes.

Social Security taxes will go up. Did you know that before you get social security every paycheck is taxed? (of course you did). I bet you might not know that when you get social security it only covers the hospital? You are required to pay over $100.00 a month to get physicians and prescriptions covered – that is taken out of your social security check. Then you need to get a supplement to cover expenses that’s are NOT covered! Did you know after you start receiving social security as your earned help, it is taxed again-considered with “income”. Even our tax consultant said that’s double taxation.

If the bill passes healthcare benefits for seniors(Medicare) will be reduced by millions, and I’ll say it again – TAXES WILL INCREASE.

Did you know social security doesn’t cover glasses or teeth? That is horrible considering the seniors whose teeth need work, and whose vision is poor.
Why does this concern me? My parents were seniors, I hope to qualify by living long enough, and even if you are eighteen now, you may live long enough to be a senior! It concerns us all.

Oh I know the bill is under a trillion dollars – by a pittance.

One last kind of negative comment: I would love to backhand Nancy Pelosi. She can’t decide for us all. Arrogant bitch. (Wow – is that me writing that? Yep. ☺

I know, “Relax, its Just Life”… and I will! I have aired my feelings on this and used my oxygen to empower and relax me, and now I feel better. What other good choice is there, but to choose to be calm and happy, no matter what. Ruining my own mind and body won’t change a thing. My attitude will! ☺

I will assert my power in a positive way. I would be interested in your thoughts on this if you care to share.

If you get overly concerned, close your eyes for a moment and go within. Take a few cleansing breaths and try to let any sense of fear or burden to melt away for now.

At least it is still a country wherein we can voice an opinion. It may not mean anything in the process, but it’s a great relief to me to get this all out. 🙂


Waste time?

October 20, 2009

Certainly. I know people who are “killing time” before they die. I hate wasting time.
Time is precious. LIfe is precious.

You my God, can it be happening? I read the signs and feel the poison in the air.

It is too intense. The sun lays directly on the horizon. I have forgotten to think.
I am scattered upon the earth trying to absorb the rays that penetrate me and throngs of the human kind, as long as change is time reverberates sandy nights, wind pushing my hair behind my cheeks and when the wind subsides, falling gently upon my shoulders and back. The wind filling my lungs with oxygen and need I say more. . I love you.
I love you Creator and Sacrificing Son who willing to face defilement for no other reason than love….

I will not question why. I will submit to love. How easy is this that is all that is asked?


Commuting dogs in Moscow

September 16, 2009

Sleeping dog

I did NOT write this post, but for ANY animal love it will touch your heart. My sister in law sent it to me this morning and it was too good not to post!

STRAY dogs are commuting to and from a city centre on underground trains in search of food scraps.

The clever canines board the Tube each morning. After a hard day scavenging and begging on the streets, they hop back on the train and return to the suburbs where they spend the night. Experts studying the dogs say they even work together to make sure they get off at the right stop — after learning to judge the length of time they need to spend on the train. The mutts choose the quietest carriages at the front and back of the train.

They have also developed tactics to hustle humans into giving them more food on the streets of Moscow .

Scientists believe the phenomenon began after the Soviet Union collapsed in the 1990s, and Russia ’s new capitalists moved industrial complexes from the city centre to the suburbs. Dr Andrei Poiarkov, of the Moscow Ecology and Evolution Institute, said: “These complexes were used by homeless dogs as shelters, so the dogs had to move together with their houses. Because the best scavenging for food is in the city centre, the dogs had to learn how to travel on the subway — to get to the centre in the morning, then back home in the evening, just like people.”

Dr. Poiarkov told how the dogs like to play during their daily commute. He said: “They jump on the train seconds before the doors shut, risking their tails getting jammed. They do it for fun. And sometimes they fall asleep and get off at the wrong stop.”

The dogs have learned to use traffic lights to cross the road safely, said Dr Poiarkov. And they use cunning tactics to obtain tasty morsels of shawarma, a kebab-like snack popular in Moscow . They sneak up behind people eating shawarmas — then bark loudly to shock them into dropping their food. With children the dogs “play cute” by putting their heads on youngsters’ knees and staring pleadingly into their eyes to win sympathy — and scraps. Dr Poiarkov added: “Dogs are surprisingly good psychologists.”

The Moscow mutts are not the first animals to use public transport. In 2006 a Jack Russell in Dunnington, North Yorks , began taking the bus to his local pub in search of sausages. And two years ago passengers in Wolverhampton were stunned when a white cat called Macavity started catching the 331 bus to a fish and chip shop.

Things I am really tired of today….

July 12, 2009

I am tired of our government “sharing” millions we DON’T have with so many other countries. Great. We are helping others, getting further in debt, have successfully evaporated the middle class, and things are getting worse…

How about fixing our some of the public needs? For instance, hundred year + old levees, sewers, bridges, waterlines, and tunnels. Let’s add dangerous old air transportation, subways and power grids. Huh? Huh?

I am also tired of US accepting every word the media sends us. You must know most media (whether radio, television, or the written word) is hogwash and bought and paid for by those “in charge”.

Now think about this: I am tired of Hollywood making movies that either send us subliminal messages of doom to come, or violent behaviors, or other crap. I am also tired of Hollywood paying unwarranted salaries to people, saturating our heads with how the actors (and that’s just what they are) are STARS and should be idolized, and then have various special presentations to give themselves awards! Duh. How stupid are we? Hummmm, maybe middle class stood for “mindless intellectual dopes dashing life endlessly!” No worries. The middle class is gone and now we are the working poor.

I am tired of politicians promising change. It’s all the same lies we’ve heard hundreds of times before. I am tired of politicians (when they get caught) – confessing their sins and then being forgiven. I say divorce the bastards.

I am tired of politicians taking trips and spending money on lavish dinners, celebrations and gathering. I am tired of providing their livelihood and security until they die!

I am tired of everyone saying, “Hey, buy a new car – we’ll give you $4,000. for your old one (if it gets less than 18 miles a gallon) – then you put out the rest of the money for it! I could sell the old clunker for more than that! Besides, where in the hell do all these idiots in charge think the commoner is going to get that money. Just a couple of days ago GM let go 22,000 more employees . With homes being lost, jobs being lost, and families breaking from the financial stress, where do these criminals think people are supposed to come up with the cash!

There. I have said my peace today. I now will let it go and return to the circle of my life. I will never let any of this steal my joy for more than a few minutes. I always have the choice to draw happiness no matter how many “problems” appear. My perception of life is what I make it! Try making those mental choices that will enhance your life no matter what challenges you face. You are not alone. I face challenges too, but I am not going to let them run me over!

CREATE a wonderful day for those in your circle of life. All this greed and money grabbing crap really doesn’t mean a thing. It comes and goes. Love, on the other hand can flourish no matter what if you just let it! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Mr. Barack Hussien Obama and Michael Jackson’s Memorial

July 4, 2009

…………………. or have you made it a law yet that I have to call you “Mr. President”? Maybe is it still just a courtesy and sometimes reflects respect. I have a few comments to you for your recent comments about California.

Perhaps before speaking you had better talk to a lifetime California resident. This state is going down the toilet. Happy 4th of July. I know, when you smile and say something, and then break into that great big prize winning smile that captivates, sometimes the words that come out of your mouth just float right by people.

But to clarify, people are not moving to California because it is working towards being a “green” state. They move to California because it is one of the USA’s coastal states, and people love the beach. They move to California because it has the most diverse land and weather – and probably the best – in the USA. They move to California because Mexico is poor and California has paid illegal immigrants and provided for their children. They also can have children here who are then US citizens.

Why would people want to “keep pace” with California. We are going bankrupt paying medical, food stamps, and housing for indigents, mentally ill residents, and poor people. Also, clear to me, the politicians are screwing up – California, once a stable state, is going bankrupt WHY? What happened to the billions the lottery brought in, what happened to ALL the money?

Please – don’t say California has created new jobs by leaning towards “the green way”…..we have some of the highest unemployment rates in the USA, and our home foreclosures possibly one of the highest! The working class (formerly the middle class) is now known as the working poor, and WE ARE SICK OF IT! The middle class is vaporized.

So please, DON’T give any credit to the STATE of California or it’s politicians or it’s liberal environmental folks. State parks may be closing, prisoners are being let out of prison early, firefighters and police and sheriff staffs are being laid off, DMV cost has risen, state sales tax has gone up and we are in the middle of the biggest mess I’ve ever seen in my entire life.

I am a native Californian and I am NOT happy about it all. I am NOT alone. That’s only part of the mess. Taxpayers in California are apparently going to be stuck with a 2.5 million cost for “security” for Michael Jackson’s Memorial Service. What the hell! It should be paid by his estate!

I would move but I can’t sell my house because the market is flooded with bank owned homes, I can’t refinance because we used our savings to keep up with our bills while my husband was unemployed for seven months, and it’s going to take a LONG time before we can even catch up!

And on top of it all, the English, whom we fought to separate from are now making billions of dollars from American Idol and it sister shows. We fought to separate because we were being taxed to death!

But let’s just keep giving everyone else but the REAL people, the working class people, the money! Take more trips, have more banquets, pass out millions to other countries and keep smiling and lying. I see no promises kept, only government enlarging control and the worker ants being stomped upon. There is nothing new under the sun.

And if anyone reading this has a valid opinion with any backup to prove my statements wrong, I will read your opinions with an open mind. I am just stating what I know to be what I have seen over a lifetime, and what I see now – NOT what the media tells me!

Okay. What is so wonderful about blogging is I can voice my opinions, get it out, then let it go! I am going to have a great evening – you do the same 🙂

Today’s Tasty Tidbits

July 1, 2009

Did you know that these drugs are now considered dangerous if overdosed? They can kill.

Theraflu, Tylenol, Nyquil
BIG BROTHER RULES (only brother is the wrong description)
6.4 trillion dollars has been lost from American households in 6 months – There is no excuse for what is happening!

Heard a blurb on news and it was talking about the “traditional” family. Said traditionally both parents work. I call BS. That is
a lie. That so called tradition started when the prices soared some years back, and the wages didn’t!

Have you heard the term “the New Normal”? It means now that families need to get ready to have less and pay more. The new normal is NOT normal. It’s just what we are supposed to think, as presented by the media, that it’s okay – everybody is doing it.
I call BS again.

The State of California spends $250 million to “save salmon” each year. Yesterday I saw a news blurb that showed 5 men picking up the salmon and hand transferring them upstream about 100 feet – water too warm for them to do it.”

(But we are going bankrupt. Hmmm. wonder what happened to all the lottery money-sure didn’t go to the schools.)

A while back the only really nice open beach in N. California was closed to campers. No toilets, no fire pits, no nothing! Why? Because people were stepping on an endangered plant on the beach that’s why!


Good thing I teach stress management and relaxation, and REALLY live by the techniques…. otherwise I might throw up!

Think I’ll take a breath and get a drink of water. Let it go and it won’t consume you! Have a beautiful moment right now and SMILE. No reason – just feels better.
