Trump’s Inauguration….

Did you hear about this last night on FOX?    Other channels aren’t carrying it, but I find it important.   It’s just yet another sign of the ‘big, open minded liberal.’

HERE is a partial list of celebs who wouldn’t perform at the Inauguration events…I was a little surprised about KISS because Simmons is a big Republican, and a little surprised at Garth Brooks…..  We even have Democrat politicians boycotting the inauguration…five of them!  They don’t like ‘the plans Trump has for the country’….what, like improving it?

And then we have Rose O’Donnell supporting martial law until Trump is cleared of all accusations…

hate-trump

Many Republicans were horrified at Obama’s election.  We were even sometimes referred to as racist for even suggesting anybody not vote for a man with his ideology…NOT his color.

Do you remember much like I’ve listed above when we were so very upset?  Did anything on this level of hateful protest when the Greek arches came out for Obama?  When he was inaugurated either time?

Is this healthy for a country?  The Left would say it is, that protest is very American. 

Thoughts?

Trump and KIDS, too? (and more) How sad

I read a Facebook post the other day by a friend who’s moved away….She writes that her little girl asked if her mommy could be the first woman president..  Her mother said jokingly that “yes, mommy will move into the WH as first woman president ….Her 8 year old came back with “as long as Donald Trump isn’t there.”    Big laughs in the comments.

I’ve posted here other instances where children are fearful of Trump, hate Trump, etc.

We called it child abuse when we discussed it here last time.

scared-kids

I’m starting to think it’s America Abuse.   WE did NOT LIKE OBAMA, did we make our children hate him, too?   Did you even know who president was at the age of 8?  Where’d she get this bad view of our president elect?   The parents.

Abuse.  The kids have now learned to disrespect adults.  They’ve learned to feel superior to an adult of some accomplishment and who was selected by half of America to lead our country.

The message seems to be “this man is someone your parents don’t like…you must hate him, not support him…while he runs this country”..the inference being “unless we like him, he’s wrong”

What kind of lesson is that?  What respect for the other half of America is that?

Abuse.  Sad for those children who should be raised trusting their country, understanding differences, learning to cope with situations.

The media, professors, students, kids….seems like everybody’s trying so hard to dishonor Trump.

Don’t you think so?

Will Trump Become President?

THIS is tough stuff………(CNN)Classified documents presented last week to President Obama and President-elect Trump included allegations that Russian operatives claim to have compromising personal and financial information about Mr. Trump, multiple US officials with direct knowledge of the briefings tell CNN.”

Is the following info Putin’s great “GOTCHA!” to America?   He might have been responsible for Hillary’s damaging information and a lot of us asked “Could he do it to the Republicans?”  And, voila!  Just days before an inauguration!?

“These senior intelligence officials also included the synopsis to demonstrate that Russia had compiled information potentially harmful to both political parties, but only released information damaging to Hillary Clinton and Democrats. This synopsis was not an official part of the report from the intelligence community case about Russian hacks, but some officials said it augmented the evidence that Moscow intended to harm Clinton’s candidacy and help Trump’s, several officials with knowledge of the briefings tell CNN.”

A discussion I heard on this included how there might be Trump surrogate emails with Russia about the damaging info on Hillary.  There’s ‘salacious’ information on Trump, too, but the information of Trump and his part in keeping Hillary from winning, and his financial situations with Russia might be really BAD, worse than any salacious stuff.

There’s a video of the discussion on CNN on the link….I know, I know, you hate CNN,  you hate Don Lemon, you hate Carl Bernstein, etc etc., but I urge you to listen.  The information is compelling on one hand;  I’m inclined not to believe one word of it, on the other hand.

If the information is bad enough and it’s out before Trump’s inauguration, would we get Mike Pence for President or would there be a whole new election?

GeeeeZ

Jeff Sessions’ session with the Senate

I’ve been really hard on Sessions…always.  Was NOT pleased with Trump’s picking him for AG.

I’ve pretty much changed my mind;  I have had the hearings on as I’ve been doing stuff around here and I’m impressed with his articulation, his not folding to the libs, to not pandering to the cons, to how he remembers to point out why he might not have voted for a bill, something people didn’t know, things in the bill which made him right not to vote for it.

Anybody else watching and have an opinion on him?

Pass these on to younger folks you know!

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did…..got a favorite?  WHY?

1. The most important person in your life is the person who agreed to share their life with you. Treat them as such.

2. You might live a long life, or you might live a short one — who knows. But either way, trust me when I say that you’re going to wish you took better care of yourself in your youth.

3. Stuff is just stuff. Don’t hold onto material objects, hold onto time and experiences instead.

4. Jealousy destroys relationships. Trust your significant other, because who else are you supposed to trust?

5. People always say, ’’Make sure you get a job doing what you love!’’ But that isn’t the best advice. The right job is the job you love some days, can tolerate most days, and still pays the bills. Almost nobody has a job they love every day.

6. If you’re getting overwhelmed by life, just return to the immediate present moment and savour all that is beautiful and comforting. Take a deep breath, relax.

7. Years go by in the blink of an eye. Don’t marry young. Live your life. Go places. Do things. If you have the means or not. Pack a bag and go wherever you can afford to go. While you have no dependents, don’t buy stuff. Any stuff. See the world. Look through travel magazines and pick a spot. GO!

8. Don’t take life so seriously. Even if things seem dark and hopeless, try to laugh at how ridiculous life is.

9. A true friend will come running if you call them at 2am. Everyone else is just an acquaintance.

10. Children grow up way too fast. Make the most of the time you have with them.

11. Nobody ever dies wishing they had worked more. Work hard, but don’t prioritize work over family, friends, or even yourself.

12. Eat and exercise like you’re a diabetic heart patient with a stroke — so you never actually become one.

13. Maybe this one isn’t as profound as the others, but I think it’s important… Floss regularly, dental problems are awful.

14. Don’t take anyone else’s advice as gospel. You can ask for advice from someone you respect, then take your situation into consideration and make your own decision. Essentially, take your own advice is my advice…

15. The joints you damage today will get their revenge later. Even if you think they’ve recovered completely. TRUST ME!

16. We have one time on this earth. Don’t wake up and realize that you are 60 years old and haven’t done the things you dreamed about.

17. Appreciate the small things and to be present in the moment. What do I mean? Well, it seems today like younger people are all about immediate gratification. Instead, why not appreciate every small moment? We don’t get to stay on this crazy/wonderful planet forever and the greatest pleasure can be found in the most mundane of activities. Instead of sending a text, pick up the phone and call someone. Call your mother, have a conversation about nothing in particular. Those are the moments to hold onto.

18. Pay your bills and stay the hell out of debt. If I could have paid myself all the money I’ve paid out in interest over the years, I’d be retired already.

19. If you have a dream of being or doing something that seems impossible, try for it anyway. It will only become more impossible as you age and become responsible for other people.

20. When you meet someone for the first time, stop and realize that you really know nothing about them. You see race, gender, age, clothes. Forget it all. You know nothing. Those biased assumptions that pop into your head because of the way your brain likes categories, are limiting your life, and other people’s lives.

Z: : FIND FAITH EARLY.   Don’t wait.

Obama’s Legacy

tear-down-this-stall

Can you honestly think of ONE GOOD THING OBAMA’S DONE?   Let’s try not to be partisan and give him some credit.  (I will now duck your rotten tomatoes and let you take over 🙂 !!

A couple of other things worth discussing, since I’m pretty sure my blog question won’t get lists of accomplishments (!),  :  I heard on L.A. Talk Radio last week that people were asked if they’d watch Megyn Kelly on NBC and only 7% said they’d be inclined to…!
ALSO;  O’Reilly mentioned last night the phenomenon I’ve noticed and commented on here; Republicans going on CNN to complain about Republicans.  He particularly mentioned Lindsay Graham, who I mentioned the other day in this context.   Weasels.   

Z  (and you may wish me a Happy Birthday today :-))

Sunday Faith Blog

Dear Father,  be with THESE PEOPLE‘s families as they grieve over the shocking and so totally unexpected, violent deaths of their loved ones.   Amen.

“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.,”  Matthew 5:4

The news stories cover the shooter in depth, the dead’s names and details are slowly coming out.  Their families will never ever be the same.  There will be guilt for the woman whose husband died and she didn’t, the husband who wasn’t hit but his wife is gone forever.  There will be grandchildren who never knew their grandparents, loneliness for long-time spouses.  Christmas will never be the same.  Tomorrow will never be the same.  And yet we won’t know them, but we’ll know the killer and are being told he had problems;  we will give him all the second chances his victims never had.

We ask you to be with these families, dear God……comfort them.  Help them to forgive for their own sakes, for their own health.  Help them find the peace only  You can possibly provide when hate and anger are the first emotions we so understandably feel.

Please have each person who reads this blog post pray at least once for the victims’ families.  We are told in scripture to pray for the shooter, too.   Please make that easier than it might be.  ***

That was the end of my post until I saw the (huge!) video below on Facebook at 2 AM this morning and knew this had to be added to the sad post above, which I found hopeless but honest.   The video below reminds us how good God is.  God is complicated.  We don’t know His intentions, His timing, why terrible things like the shootings above happen.  But we know really GOOD THINGS HAPPEN, too.  Make sure you watch her story till the end…..”you can feel it in your heart.”  It helps us to remember that.  (Thanks to Jerry, who reminds you all to make sure you wait till the (huge) video downloads below the verse from Proverbs because the message is so worth it!)

“Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.” Proverbs 19:21

Amen.

Where do we go from here?

Gee, Surprise Surprise!   You legalize pot, more partake and……get sick.

Is this the future of America?  Every state full of sick stoners taking up space in our hospitals, loaded while they drive (car accidents are also up since legalization), one big stupid country of people overdoing drug use? Sure, some of us think legalizing pot is only going to cut down on cartels, etc., but is it worth it?

Let me take it a step further:   Legal pot, sanctuary cities, unisex bathrooms, men marrying men, TV commercials about male erections and bowel movements, etc etc ETC…….I’d love to see what someone from 1940 would think today, let alone people from before that, huh?

american-family

Can we come back as a healthy country of self reliant, prosperous people who didn’t do drugs, who cherished family and healthy choices?   I know two kids at different colleges who are leaving those colleges after six months because they can barely find friends who aren’t drugging and drinking every single night.  And these are tough schools!

America?  What’s going ON?  Or just light up a joint and………relaaaaaaaaaaaaaaax, don’t worry about it, just don’t do too much or you’ll be sick as a dog.
