These are my children.
Will all the conspiracy lovers come out and play? With the newest arrest Roger Stone who is from the Trump camp, we should all be wondering, who’s next. Are we going to see Kushner go down soon? If he goes down, get ready for Trump to soon exit. I no longer see this as funding for a wall. This is about a person trying to damage our government. For those of you who disagree, let me spell out one simple fact for you. The draft for the National Emergency Deceleration was put into works yesterday.
Follow me, this is now 35 days into the shutdown. He knew within the first week that he wasn’t going to get funding for his wall, so if it were that much of an emergency issue, he would have called for the draft then. He promised his followers that he would slash the government. I think you guys inadvertently gave him the perfect alibi. He would be able to take down the government, much like his friends from North Korea and Russia. Trump likes dictators if you haven’t noticed, he glows when he’s around them.
Now, with some of you giving him the perfect alibi he’s able to cover anything and everything that he does under the cloud of a campaign promise. The promises will not be questioned because people will think he cares about his people. In reality, he’s trying to change the face of the government by force. This was never about a wall. We all focused on the wall and argued among each other, and some of us are still on page 100 of this 200 page novel.
This is what you have to understand, Congress will not want to admit that they were had. They are still on page 100 while the rest of the country is nearing page 200. The Democrat and the Republicans need to find a way to sign whatever he places before them so we can get the government on track. The boys are shrinking in on him and his only recourse is to slash the very things they need to keep going. Write your congressmen and tell them to support whatever we need because we can’t have our nation under siege. I know how much America means to you, and I know some of you are just as sick about this, as I am. Put pressure on the congress to do protect the American people at all cost. Simply put, the argument about the wall is no longer valid. This is an argument about the future of America.
Giving in does not always mean giving up, guys. A couple of years ago I was working a case and a crazy guy came up to me and cornered me against my Jeep. He started talking about what he was going to do and he blocked me from escaping. He just kept getting closer and closer until we were damn near touching. The only thing I could do was think of how to get out of the situation at that moment. I played his game. I was like okay, I have time for a quickie, but I need to do this really fast or I’ll get in trouble for work. His eyes got wide and he smiled. I surprised him, he didn’t know I was shaking on the inside. He was like I’ll stay with you and we can go together. I reassured him that I just needed a few seconds. I asked him to show me his house. He would have to back up in order to show me his house, so when he backed up, I jumped into my Jeep and locked the doors. I took off. Now, I prevented something that would have been an assault. That’s kind of what we are dealing with right now as a nation. It’s better to live and deal with the issues right now because they might become unbearable later.
As many of you know I have three daughters. Here’s two at the ballet trying hard to not be noticed. Didn’t want to risk their black/Puerto Rican cards! According to them, the ballet wasn’t a black/Puerto Rican thing. Whatever that means!
We talk a lot about race and hate in America. A lot of times we link hate to political groups. If you are Democratic, you hate all straight, white, rich Americans and if you are a Republican you hate all nonwhite, gay, anti-religious people, does that sound about right? Let’s look at those views for a second and see if they are a true representation of who we are.
We’ll use my daughters to see if the labeling appears to be valid or a myth. Take this photo for example and my very democratic girls. My husband and I are Independent, once we were moderately Republican. Both of our parents were Democrats. Now the spy in the picture happens to be my 21 year old. She’s engaged to a Republican. I didn’t see that coming to be honest, I knew that she would more than likely marry a white guy because she seemed to date only white guys, but the Republican thing surprised us! Her best friend is a member of the LGBT group.
The one on the phone hiding her face, is the would be black panther of the family.
She takes everything to heart and takes it very personal when things come down to race relations. The immigration thing really hit her the hardest because she was in earshot of a few calls I took from people doing random calls asking about thoughts on immigration. While my husband is Puerto Rican and served in the Army for 14 years, the immigration thing still wasn’t too far away from him. He was legal, but he was still Latin. My daughter felt like if America had a problem with one Spanish person, America had a problem with all Spanish people. So it really was a task explaining that most of us just wanted people to immigrate the right way, because doing it the right way allowed proper vetting. I explained in the grocery lane! I was like how would you feel if all those people at the end of the lane rushed in front of us? She was able to see that maybe it wasn’t fair to those waiting after all! Anyway! It wasn’t a surprise that her boyfriend would turn out to be black, but it was a surprise when he turned out to be Republican.
Now it comes down to this little lady! She’s her own woman. She’s the KPOP You-tuber that hates anything to do with politics, and race relations. She likes to show girls how to be stronger in relationship on her YouTube channel. She doesn’t allow me to help her which shows she will be just like her sisters , a woman with her own mind.
In other words, if you are worried about the state of America today, look inside your house for clues. Make sure you are raising children to be the best that they can be, and that you are not pushing your biases onto your children. I talk a lot of crap here and there, but at the end of the day, I try to make sure my children understand that people are just people.
I know a lot of people this year are wondering if this is the year they will finally qualify for that perfect house. I don’t know about you, but the older I get the more I think about my children. We have been back and forward about moving back to my ancestry land. Now that we’ve made the decision to move, we have to figure out in what fashion do we wish to move back. I didn’t initially want to move back home, but looking at my landlord made me thankful of my own property.
My landlord owns half of this entire street. That means he’s getting rental money from at least six houses on my side of the street. We will not talk about the houses he owns across town! It’s kind of crazy when you think about it, we are paying 1250 a month for something we will never own. So, in reality we are throwing that money away because it doesn’t come back.
I found out a few months ago that 1250 bucks can actually get you land in some areas, and in other areas 700 bucks. This means you could build you a little container home or a starter home. Amazon sells them from 12000 and up. The one below is around 30,000 I think. You would be able to stay in it until you build your dream home, invest in the markets, or just until you wanted to do something new. If you wanted to keep it, you could live in it forever.
Amazon has made it easier for people to own a starter home instead of renting one. Take that rental money and put it on some land, and start living your life.
I’m sure we all recall our birthdays, but I guess this year it just kind of slipped my mind. There’s so much going on in this country, I’ve just been going on help mode! Yet, I made it to see another year.
This goes out to me! Happy Birthday me!!!
If you look closely at the picture you can see sadness on some of their faces. Can you even imagine how it feels to know that your family’s life is being put in the balance because your leaders can’t get it together? We are talking about the people who won their states because they promised to look after their people.
This is America and we are acting like some third world country that some of these guys served in. How can anyone in congress sleep at night? How can Trump sleep at night knowing that their inability to get along is causing so many families pain. Our workers are being oppressed and having it sugar coated by being told they will get funds at a later date.
We have important updates being put off due to the shutdown. Earlier I received this message because I signed up for updates. Don’t ask why, just know that when a natural disaster happens, I plan to know.
“Recent Observations: Cascade Range volcanoes remained at background activity levels throughout the week. During the lapse in appropriations, CVO continues to maintain networks and issue updates and notifications of volcanic activity. Volcano monitoring data will continue to available on the CVO website. Some website content will not be updated and information may become outdated. More information about the partial government shutdown is available at https://www.doi.gov/shutdown. ” This email is from the U.S. Geological Survey.
These are the workers who monitor volcanoes and earthquakes. They monitor Yellowstone National Park which happens to be a super-volcano. With all the movement under Yellowstone and NASA trying to drill holes in it to cool it down, I would think that they need to have someone on it day and night. These are important jobs being held up, such as Homeland Security. Do they not understand that the average person doesn’t have 300000 waiting in their accounts to ward off bills?
Our leaders are not leading.
This was a letter that was sent to my husband’s email from the Veterans Administration. As always take whatever information that helps in this hour of need. We will outlast this fuckery.
