I had hoped that after the election the political crap would have subsided. Still the media and many people who believe the prattle and rumors still are trying to undo a legal vote and the person who actually has experience with foreign trade and politics. People are saying that Trump is inapt and doesn’t know what he is doing, yet his does this for a living. Those who say he is a woman hater, a bigot and a danger to the US are basing this on a scripted Reality show and rumors who never wanted him in there. I am sorry. He is neither a demon nor a thug but a man who, if given the chance, can get the US out of the horrors that we are headed towards. He is not the problem, it is the arrogance of those who don’t want us to be great that has become our downfall. I know my opinion is not popular, but I still believe that it it must be said and those who don’t believe, well … That is their prerogative isn’t it? Just do your selves a favor and actually research this instead of taking the media’s word for it. This is not the end of the world, but the beginning of new possibilities. Oh yes, and for all who are whining about this and threatening to leave because Trump is president, just remember that if we go to war it is the last President who started it, not Trump. And don’t let the door hit you on your way out. I put up with Obama and his ilk, now I will see what this man has to offer. I will not whine because someone I didn’t vote for lost … like you are doing..
I am so glad that voting is on the 8th of this next month. I have found that the Democrats are pulling out all the stops to slander Trump. I know they will do it for ANY non carrier politician who wants to pull this country up by its boot straps and actually make us strong again. I find it funny that Hillery is slamming him for past indiscretions with women and saying how hateful he is of them. Funny thing, IF she were christian there is a quote out of the bible from the new testament. Jesus came across people who accused a woman of adultery and were preparing to stone her. He said “Let he who is WITHOUT SIN cast the first stone.” I challenge Hillery and her fellow Democrats with that statement. After all her husband was doing the same thing as President and was trying to hide it by shutting down those women who wanted to testify against him. Now she is calling Trump the male version of tramp and HE HAS NOT SAID A WORD about her husband nor any of the other male politicians who have and are doing the same thing and have not been kicked out of office. So let’s just drop these accusations claiming that this is a stipulation for being dropped from politics and actually concentrate on what this country needs! LESS GOVERNMENT INTERFERENCE, LESS SPENDING, and KEEPING OUR RIGHTS IN TACT! I am a woman and an not a fan of Hillery, her want to take away our rights and leaving us open for invasion like her predecessor has been doing!
Why must we be so hectic, angry and self-serving? I mean, look around you! There is this beautiful world which we live in. With Technology came stress and time-clocks. People began rushing about trying to get to where-so-ever they were headed in record time to they could accomplish more and make more money to buy more “stuff”. Now don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with some of the tech out there, and working is a satisfying pass-time, but as a local priest asked, “What in the world do we need a vacuum which costs $800? It sucks!” I agree. I mean I look at all those “MUST HAVE DESIGNER BRAND” clothes, appliances and more and wonder why we (according to the adverts and our peers) Absolutely need them!
I was asked what I was looking for out of life. My answer is simple. I want peace. Oh, I don’t mean no war or such, though that would be nice, I mean peace with myself. No stress, no rushing about to earn enough to buy crap I don’t even need. I would do with out cell phones (and might still if they discontinue the flip phones), IPADS, TV, electric/computerized cars and clothes which (to me) makes you look like either a hooker or tent!
I want to spend time in nature, working on my art, poetry, prose, writings. Working with animals and in a garden, and in general only leave and go to the larger cities when I need to buy appliances, material for making clothes, clothes I can’t make on my own and entertainment (which is VERY seldom!). Peace to me is spending time with family, doing projects together and sharing ideas.
People who look down on the Amish and those who live in a similar way just because “Things/Stuff” doesn’t center around how they live will never understand this. Wanting to be without material things and to be uninterested in showing up everyone because you spent money on a $800 vacuum which you really didn’t need or $1,000 on an outfit or shoes, doesn’t make you quaint, backwards or hicks. It just means your have different priorities and values in your life. Thanks for reading.
I have been bored with technology lately. The phones they are trying to get us to buy eat up more time and memory just so we can have “access to the world” information, Satellites actually give literally ANYONE access to where you are located at any time, and people can track you whither or not your phone is turned on. Facebook (I have heard) is planning to force people to give out information whither we want it or not, and are planning to make us pay for the privilege of keeping in touch with our families. I find TV filled with stupidity and lies. We are tied to our homes by tech, as well as our cars which are getting close to thinking for us as well. I made the comment to a friend that we should drop all the tech and go back to nature by going off the grid. He said we/I would never make it a day. I tend to beg to differ. I feel the only thing I would miss would be my music and keeping in touch with family and friends, but I have been without a TV since 2005 and have found it refreshing since 90% of TV are scripted reality shows, bleeding heart liberals who what us to cry at everything and give what money we have earned to those who refuse to work, or politicians. I do like my DVD’s, but if I go off grid, I would not have electricity for either that, radio, cds or computer. Funny thing, those I do not consider priority. Sooooo, who else could think they could make it without tech hanging over their heads or chaining them to their homes, cars etc.?
It seems that the ruling in favor of Hobby Lobby has created quite a stir in both the polytheist, and Atheist communities. They seem to think that it is a blow against their beliefs/religions. The thing is, it is not just for the Christian businesses, but for everyone. What Hobby Lobby is basically asking is don’t force them to provide things which have nothing to do with actual business. That includes condoms. Personally I applaud this ruling because it allows businesses to run their businesses as THEY see fit and not being told how to think and act as the GOVERNMENT sees fit. Think about it. Freedom of Religion, one of our basic rights in the Bill of rights, states nobody, government, dictators, kings or other religions, nations etc. HAVE A RIGHT to TELL US HOW, WHEN NOR WERE WE CAN WORSHIP/PRACTICE OUR BELIEFS. (This includes those politically correct idiots who say we can not display our religious symbols, jewelry or decorations or praying in public for fear we will offend people who are allowed to do what they want. Double standards there). Businesses should not be FORCED to provide condoms nor contraceptives to their employees. THAT is the responsibility of the EMPLOYEE! AND if we comply with “OBAMA CARE” most small businesses will either drop their employees or close completely. Most companies will look outside of the US for cheaper labor which is not regulated by the US! So it was not JUST for Christians, it symbolized all people who are being forced to loose their rights to a greedy administration!
when does competition become greed? I would say when it has to do with business. May businesses strive to gain more and more money, but sometimes it is at the cost of the consumers. Trying to out do each other, books stores, clothing stores and the like are putting each other out of business. I happen to find that lately businesses are opting to drop products which are good ones because they “can’t keep up” with their rivals. Today in the news Barnes and Nobel is announcing dropping the Nook because they can’t compete with Amazon. Trouble is what about all their loyal customers who use the NOOK? They certainly can’t just switch over since Amazon’s product doesn’t support the books that they have already purchased/downloaded. Look at all the money that is wasted! There is no way to transfer all those books! Once they are gone, they are gone, and you can’t get them back! THIS is why I liked the regular books. When you no longer want them, you can either sell them or store them. You don’t loose them just because a company goes out of business or discontinues their product line.
Competition is suppose to HELP both the business and the customer. It allows us choices, but when greed takes over it becomes a bad thing because it rids us of our choices and makes those of us who like one product instead of another, to be able to get what we like instead of being stuck with what we don’t want.
