If it is not broke!

I work in a manufacturing enviornment.Everything has to be working properly for the process to make a product. I am a “tinker” when I am on the line. Most bosses don’t care if the parts are perfect, just that they meet the aspects that the customer wants. I liked perfection and I would “tinker” and adjust until I felt like I was making the perfect part. My bosses would get to aggravated at me. That is when I 1st heard If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it.”

In our nations capital the rolls are reversed. Our leadership is tinkering with our Constitution, I am the one saying “if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it.”THe Constitution all by itself is near perfect. Standing it alone, with the Bill of Rights, it seems to give human beings the responsibility for their own freedom, happiness, work, protection, & charity.

The Constitution and the Bill of Rights were written because we just came out from under a government that abused its power to enslave its citizens. The men and women were literally being murdered in the streets by British soldiers. If the people didn’t give the soldiers their demands, or spoke out against them or the government the people were retaliated against. They were over taxed and burdened with Loads of government debt. Does this sound familure yet?

YOu and I are in the same boat as the settlers in 1776. Someone decided we need to regulate this and we need to put a law against that and tinker with our constitution. We are not longer equal to our elected officials. They are now privileged to steal our land when we die(the soldeirs would do that),To tax our grandchildren for their luxurious vacations( the king did this), to enslave us to their bankers( our government has done this).They are trying to opress our speach, and take away our protections.

If the Vice President doesn’t think that ordinary citizens care about the Constitution he is right. The extrodinary citizens do. That is you and me.And, if you don’t care about it now you will soon enough, because you are in the same boat as the rest of us. You to will be arrest for speaking, you too will be stolen from, and murdered in the streets by a government who thinks it is above the law.

They tinkered with the Constitution and for us to fix what they broke is this-The answer to “1984” is 1776_ALex Jones

It’s not that complicated!

There is a commercial out that has a bunch of kids who come up with different answers to questions. The scenarios they come up with are cute and sweet and totally illogical. The commercial ends with the words “It’s not that Complicated”.

It seems this should be the same mentality of the government. With every new bill passed, every new law put in place, and every new executive order our lives get more and more complicated. Take for instance This year I finally got a raise of 2%. THis is the 1st raise I had gotten in several years. the congress has given themselves raises even during a failing economy. Now the very week I get a raise. My payroll taxes increase 2%. How is that even ok?

How about this complicated mess. I am now unable to afford hamburger. Inflation has increased so much that I am no longer able to live the same standard of living that I am used to. The reason why? tax increases and inflation sparked by poor governmental choices.Things like Bailing out BIG Banks. The inflation is a direct result of that choice in such a short amount of time. It bothers me that we bailed out banks that were going under and somehow right after they had enough money to spend on commercials that were false advertisement. They should have announced that ” if you bank with us you may lose your home and have to file bankruptcy within the next year. Sorry about your luck.”By the way we are giving everyone in our executive office a BIGGG Bonus.”that would have been a more honest commercial.

How about going to my yearly check up and my Doctor telling me, after knowing that I have had two female surgeries, that I only need an exam once every two years because my government says so. I get the feeling that someone is trying to kill me and it isn’t my husband. Isn’t that over stepping some boundaries in my life. Why should they care when and how many exams I get, If I am paying for them?

This is just a few things. I could go on all day.

If I were to run for office My campagne slogan would be ” It’s not that complicated”. You don’t have to pass a bill to see what is in it. You don’t need a million pages to get a point across in a bill. You don’t need all these governmental agencies , like the NSA, The IRS, The DHS, the TSA. They are just blood sucking useless agencies that are violating our rights everyday with adding very little value to our economy and safety.

How about getting out of the United Nations. Why in the world are a part of something that has no respect for the sovereignty of nations. We don’t need them and they don’t need us. They just make our life more complicated by wanting us to adapt their laws as our own. Or, how about shutting down NAFTA and securing our borders. Both to the north and the south of us. That is the only way to make things FAIR. People coming into this country will have a better chance of making a better wage that way.

How about taking care of the security of our own country by having our troops state side.Instead of spying on everyone in the world How about not starting wars and giving guns to people who think 911 was a heroic event.Hey in case you didn’t know al-Qaeda is not our friend. For real.

How about letting people live simple peaceful lives without governmental interference. People thrive when given the opportunity to do so on their own.I belive in letting us help one another in love.I feeling better helping my neighbor then being taxed into it.

So here is my plea. How about over turning our government completely. You see you have people in there that believe they will never be voted out. They have been in for many years and they feel like they don’t have to listen to the people over their own pockets. THis how we can do it. Next election vote on every single underdog. Don’t vote for a single republican or democrat. Vote for every single alternative possible. I think we can get enough new people in Washington to stop the mess, to go a new direction, to have new and better ideas, and are not part of the maddness.I think we should give them a chance to make things a lot less complicated.

Most of these guys don’t have big media support. We well know now that the media had an agenda to get in office who they wanted in office. The alternative candisates aren’t taking big money from elitist groups, so they don’t have big fancy bank accounts and commercials. They can’t advertise as well. All of that is no reason to say they will not be a good candidate for Washington. You and I have to get past what we see and look more at what our officials do. Don’t you think? The madness and complication are our fault. We the people put them in. Let’s get them out!!!!

Freedom or Safety?

In the recent scandals and whistleblower news, I am wondering and pondering our freedom and safety. Several years ago, while President George W. Bush was in the White House, I was very conflicted about the wars and the direction he was taking our nation. Overtime and being much younger I was swayed to believe that he was doing the right thing. (I am not so sure about all that now) And, maybe many things he did were right, but only time will tell.

One thing for certain in my heart is the freedoms taken away from you and I in the Patriot Act were very wrong. I think Thomas Jefferson would be very disappointed if he knew what was happening in this country today. He would be disgraced to know that the words that he wrote in our Declaration of Independence were forgotten.

This Patriot act was imposed on us in the guise of safety. Sounds good doesn’t it? Give up our freedom to be private in our own homes, cars, work, conversations, and thoughts so we can be safe. What are we really trading? I have to say at the time the Patriot Act was put into law , I was thinking I am a good person what do I have to be afraid of? I am pretty insignificant person, they will not want to know what I am saying or doing. I was duped, and you were too.

Now that Mr.Snowden has told the world that you and I are being recorded in all our conversations on our cell phones, our computers, our Skype accounts, our google searches, and the list goes on. Now that I am seeing people being retaliated against because of their personal thoughts , feeling and ideas(example: the IRS scandals), it seems like the terror is no longer the target. I am the target. You are the target. We the People are the target of a government that has labels everyone that doesn’t agree with it as such.

This kind of government doesn’t seem very safe to me. Are we safe if we are retaliated against if we have a private thought that we spoke to our friend on the phone, in which you believed was a private conversation? Will I have to face the IRS because I posted this Blog? (If I do I am certain to let you all know about it). Are you safe if you are a liberal who has a conservative neighbor who invites you for a back yard cook out? At this point no one is safe or free.

We are not safe to have our own personal life to do with what we want. I want to be able to express my thoughts without fear of retaliation. I want to be free to work, live, and be in private. I want the Government to mind its own business, and let me mind mine.

Absent Fathers Can Lead To Depression In Teenage Girls

This blog is for all the Fathers. You are so important to our daughters and how we see the world. Please read.

0e1380145_istock000002757055mFather’s Day is coming up and I recently read a study out of the United Kingdom published in the journal Psychological Medicine that suggests that young girls who grow up without their fathers turn into depressed teenagers later in life.

It’s well known that depression tends to effect teenage girls much more than teenage boys and that trend stays the same throughout adulthood. New research is suggesting that when young girls  grow up without their fathers, the risk of depression increases with 23% of teenage girls showing signs of tiredness or sadness if they’re separated from their father before the age of five.

According to the study, it also makes them 50% more likely to develop other mental health problems compared to girls whose fathers remained in their lives.

Preschoolers are especially vulnerable with dealing with divorce and separation poorly because they generally do not have a support system of…

Can You Be In Three Different Places at Once?

It is hard to be in two places at one time. If you have ever done it, then congratulations on your survival. I, at this point in life, am in three different places at the same time. I am quickly approaching 40 and I have one child starting a family, one that is going off to college in the fall, and one child starting high school.

With all their different needs, personal growth, financial struggles (and success’), maturing strategies, I have to say this is the best time in my life. God has been good to me.

The best way I could describe it is like a rose. At the start of my adult life it would look like a tiny bud coming on. The peddles would be the adding of my children and my husband. Now seeing them grown, almost grown, and on their way to grown, there is a sence of my rose beginning to open. With a grandchild, and all the ones that are still yet to come, there are more peddles that can be seen.

In time my rose will be in full bloom. My place will in one place, again. As I watch the roses that my children have become on their own, grow and then bloom.

Being in three places at once has been a rewarding adventure. I really like it. If my forties are this good, then I’ll be happy.

Insecurity About Writing

Sometimes I think about this blog and feel very insecure. I am not a writer really even though I usually have a lot to say. I hated english class in high school. It has all these rules and placement of parts in a sentence. I never could seem to get it all right and say what I wanted to. I hated reading. It always seemed over whelming when I saw the number of pages my teachers wanted me to read in a novel. Some how though, I managed to get 5 years of english in four years of high school. Go figure.

I guess what it all comes down to is that I never felt smart enough to put things down in writing the way that I hear it in my head. Then I ask myself, what if nobody reads it? What if my writings are not very good? What if nobody cares for what I have to say or what I think?I have seen a lot of good writers on this blog site. I have heard their hearts , read their recipes, learned about mid-evil weapons, and the list goes on. I have read them and have seen that my own writing needs a lot of help. THis morning though I had a scripture in my devotional that answered the “what if’s” for me.

At that time the disciples came to Jesus and
asked, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom
of heaven?” He called a little child and had
him stand among them. And he said: “I tell
you the truth, unless you change and become
like little children, you will never enter the
kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever
humbles himself like this child is the greatest
in the kingdom of heaven.
( Matthew 18:1-4 *NIV )

You see, when I started this blog, it was for the purpose of glorifying My Father. As simple as that. Even if no one ever saw the post, or likes what I say or share. I am ok with that. If my view rates are low. I am ok with that. If they are high, I will feel the same. God has been good to me and I trust that he knows what he is doing with me and my life. Like a child, I trust him and find my security in him.

Life happens

Life happens to us or it passes us by. I was talking to a young person a few days ago ridden in a world of hurt, shame, anger, fear, regret, and more…..My heart broke for them. I explained to this person that I too had been in their shoes. That I got the help I needed to work through those things of my past that kept me bound up with all that ugliness. I told them that my only regret now was that I waited so long and wasted so much of my life not able to be the person that God intended for me to be.
There is nothing we can do to change our past. We can only help what we do now to secure our future. If we are living in our past, then our life is happening without us. If we deal with the hurt and pain of the past, then life can and will happen again to us.
It is like clearing out the clutter to let life back in.
