You Do It

I have a proposition for all of the people who want the US government to take in and feed and house and clothe people who's culture seeks to destroy ours. I would like each one of you to take in a homeless person. The homeless in our country arent for the most part Muslim but they are not welcome in their own home so it is a good comparison. Go out to the street in the city nearest you and choose a person to come into your home. You will be responsible to feed and house and clothe them. They will be completely dependent upon you. You will be in charge of getting them any sort of medical care they need and documentation proving they are covered by your insurance. If they happen to be mentally ill or physically diseased you will be the one to pay for their care. If they become violent at any time, you will be responsible for all costs incurred in the legal process of jailing them or sending them back where they came from. And when they become belligerent and disrespectful of your kindness, as the majority of kept people do, that is your problem to handle as best you can

If this sounds ridiculous you are the very worst kind of hypocrite. You don't care for other humans if it means your own inconvenience, or a threat to you own personal safety. Or is it because the person living under a bridge is in all likelihood the same color as you and only those who's skin is different deserve to be welcomed? Isn't that the very racism you accuse me of?  You want the government and those who pay taxes to do the work you see as desperately needed.  Do not dare to question my Christianity if I am not 100% in favor of having people from places that politically seek to conquer America and you are unwilling to do the same for those already here.

America's Greatness

It has been nearly 11 months since I had a thought worth blogging about.  I have one now.

I don't think anyone can "make America great again."  I think we have gone past the point of rebound.  I think the worldview of our culture has made a return to pulling oneself up by one's bootstraps impossible.  

What I see from people of many generations, not just the Millennials as some say, but people across all the living is a desire for something for nothing and a distinct lack of taking responsibility for one's own actions.  One specific example is the complaining of the crippling student loan debt that every single person chooses to take on, or not as the case may be.  We all get to choose.  Trade school or university or hard hand-work, it's a choice we make as individuals regardless of sex or station.

I don't believe that you can turn back to what this country was founded on from this place we find ourselves in.  I don't think you can ever go back to coming here to escape persecution when what is offered now is a hand out.  Those that came for escape and freedom 200 plus years ago came with a work ethic and a determination to build something for themselves.  To assimilate to a completely new way of life and become a new distinct people is abhorrent in our day whereas it was expected and celebrated in theirs.  

This is why I am hesitant to say, "Ya'll come!" to the Muslim refugees.  The picture of America to these people is different at this point in history than it was when the Green Lady asked for the tired and weak and huddled yearning to be FREE.  Freedom is not what is offered now.  Slavery to a system that wants votes is what is offered.  I can't get behind that.

To all you for-real bloggers....

I need help.  I can't remember how to change the "skin" of my blog.  The white around the words is driving me crazy and for the life of me, I can't remember how to make it better!  Is there "Blog Layout for Dummies" or some such?

Bits and Pieces

Politics....."It's called private enterprise. It'a a large part of what this country was founded on. Government entities do not have the right to refuse service to ANYONE but individual, privately held companies absolutely must have this freedom for our nation to remain. A business owner should be able to do business with anyone they want to and citizens should get to vote with their dollars whether or not that business stays viable."  My response to the many people getting sued for not wanting to bake cakes for homosexual couple's weddings.  

Parenting.....Be easy.  I feel for child #1 always.  I am one.  I raised one.  I was MUCH harder on #1 and even #2 than on #3 and #4.  It took me far too many years to realize that they are little people, not clones of us.  I will regret that immaturity on my part for all the rest of my days.  Just be easy.

Working....Today is my first day in many years of being Unemployed.  (Capital U)  Mixed feeling and hope abound.  More on that another day.

Schmoe......Its that undefined sensation of being not good enough, while still being mostly okay with your own self.  I hurt a friend last week, and left a job that I actually really liked and enjoyed a weekend with a group of young people as diverse as can be.  Busy, busy, busy.

Books.....Actually, its the book-to-movie conversion that is on my mind.  We watched the final installment of The Hobbit yesterday.  Peter Jackson jumped the shark on the quest for mo money.  That is all.

Can She Do It?

Question of the day....
Can Cara finish the 30 day blog challenge 
even though the rest of the prompts only 
illicit an "Eh" response in my head?

I'll try.

Today, what is on my iPod?  I'm going
to cheat and tell you the kind of music I like,
because I actually have NO music on my iDevice at all.

-John Denver
-Willy, Waylon and the boys
-Chris Rice
-Nashville Bluegrass
-Bruce Hornsby
-80's high school dance
-some new stuff

What I don't like.

-Rap.  Especially the new Country/Rap
crossover thing.  No sir.

-Top 40's stuff that is pretty much about
hookin' up for sex without even being clever lyrically.
(And if my daughters should happen to read
this...yes, I can like Ed Sheeran without
being impressed by his drunk/stoned/
one-nighter songs.)

Regrets....dun dun dun....

Day 13...
Do I have regrets?

That one is hard, because the real, important
LIFE decisions I wouldn't do over.  I don't regret
marrying young or having a family that
is larger than socially acceptable.  

I don't regret the MANY moves
over the course of our 24 years.  

I regret I didn't pay closer attention when my
children were little....didn't cherish each day
that I got to be their mom.  I regret the times 
I was impatient with them.

But hopefully, I can help some other mom
with younglings learn faster than I did :)
