Knowing Your Own Limits –


Although he did this VOLUNTARILY but he did not know what he was getting into….. I can think of other ways PERSONALLY to make the world or at least parts of it knowledgable of things that are done RIGHT or WRONG ….

without ME experiencing traumatic events like this – kudos to Mos Def for doing this and I am glad that they REALLY SHOWED how he broke down and could not continue on with this process…. being a soldier who is TRAINED to deal with this type of stuff and become numb to it..sets them up as an EMOTIONAL BASKETCASE when they return home to their families…

When you are trained everyday to NOT SHOW EMOTIONS – trust me it spills out onto other things in your life regardless if you are no longer in the military or not –  this type of behavior cannot be turned on and off like a light switch because if it could…..there wouldnt be so many post traumatic stress cases within our social service and veteran hospitals today –

America is something……. I don’t know what “that something” is yet…

Just in Case…….


This weekend as well as even as early as TODAY, people across this great country are packing up, in route to or have already arrived at their indeed PLANNED DESTINATIONS for yet another American Holiday weekend. Just in case you FORGOT what Memorial Day as well as Veteran’s Day is all about and why it has a place on the calendar here we go………..

It is for DEAD lives!!  – NOT for BAR B QUE and Mini-Vacations

America and North Korea


image

I am NOT saying that The United States is not taking the threats from North Korea very seriously because to ignore a nut is not a good plan. We must consider the possibility. We ignored the attacks prior to 9-11, “feeble attempts to cause fear” and “not really worth getting excited over” and “they really do not have the technology to do us harm.” And yet………….

Ummm….the other question is that if  these threats have been taken seriously EARLY ENOUGH! I believe they have been not because there is much of a possibility of any direct strike on the United States but the potential of it on our forces in the area and loyal allies such as Japan and the Republic of South Korea.

SERIOUSLY………My worry is Baby Leader in trying to appease his generals has pushed himself into a corner and will have to strike something. We shall see? So far it looks like very prudent measures are in place to show this is realized as a potential.
Never underestimate the drive of an enemy – that would really be stupid. We are not in panic mode but caution and thought are and should be the order of the day.

Military Women Fighting on the Frontline


First let me thank a blog that I follow called Digestible Politics for making me even brain storm this morning! I was up getting my mind ….body and spirit together then I started blogging! I then fooled around and ran across one of the blogs on this very same subject as well and my mind started GOING. …….hmmmmmm!!!!! Lol

I am a woman but I also enjoy my femininity.  Just because I may be able to do some acts like a man does not mean that I should!

WOMEN fighting on The Frontline…… Welp ” TO ME”…..This sounded like a Feminist desire..wanting to be on the front line as men. Some of them who are mothers and wives should talk to their families about making thus huge and over the top decision.

When you see a female police officer when she first joins the force verses about 5 years AFTER she has been on the force, you may almost NOT even recognize her……… Those male characteristics…tendencies…form…aura..etc..etc..etc.. takes its toll on her.

By now, if she lasted that long, she is one of the boys…..she has a horrid potty mouth like them, has tons of aggression,  her walk is even different,  her past flirting eyes has now changed into a gazing barking bite, she seriously feels more comfy in pants than a nice flowing summer dress, she is less likely to show her emotions too! As women, YES! We are stong…. but wisdom allows us to know our place and do well in “those places”…..

When I was in high school I also tried out for the ALL BOYS  WRESTLING team because there were a bunch of girls who complained to the principal that there should be an ALL GIRLS WRESTLING TEAM.

The principal said no but talked to the coach and stated for any girl who would try out and was able to MAKE IT could be apart of the team.. When I think of wrestling, I think of MY SON!! Why? Because he is a male.

I tried out and made it but I also chose to QUIT…. I did it “just because” and to prove a silly point but I had enough sense and understanding even while I was young and in HIGH SCHOOL to know that the sport was for males only and I cannot complain if I am a girl on a DOMINATED  MALE sport and cry because someone touched me inappropriately!! 

One other girl passed as well and she stayed on the team for 2 weeks and quit because she realized THE TRUTH as well. She never really admitted why she quit but I knew why and others did too!!!!

Women being in MALE dominated roles do this I feel because she wanted to prove something to men and even herself.. She has changed her poodle character for a pit bull and has changed her dainty and sweetheart personality and aura to a Doberman Pincher.

I’m all for women and equality …race equality etc. But fighting to be a CEO v.s. fighting to go undercover for the DEA, be on a Navy Ship with over 2, 000 MEN who are known to be out at sea for several months at a time to wanting to be on the frontline and weighing about 130 – 150 pounds and NOT able to carry their fellow soldiers who will be roughly 220 pounds …JUST IS NOT HAVING WISDOM.

I know and understand to a certain degree how some women may feel via certain positions but when they made G.I. Joe, there was a reason and a statement behind that… and like 50 years later they made G..I. Jane…the movie with Demi Moore as well as the Barbie doll.

Guess what! The doll didn’t sell well and the movie only did well because Demi Moore was a household name via acting but there were NO SEQUALS to the movie or another mock movie was ever made with a women in Navy Seals let alone being on the front line.

Thank You ALL!


 

Today is more than just having a day off of from work and getting together with friends and family to eat bar b que and play games! Lives were lost so that WE can have “this day” and many more like it!!!

To the soldiers, the nurses, the doctors, the air traffic control men, the chaplains, to the families, to the American supporters… thank you all for every single part that you have played and STILL playing so that people like me can be FREE! Thank you for risking your life so that I would NOT have to risk mine! Thank you for enlisting in the United States Military so that in the people who were born from the 1970’s until present would NOT have to be DRAFTED!!!

I am grateful to the families who are standing strong and being loyal to their sons, daughters, husbands, wives, aunts, uncles, cousins, fathers, mothers and friends who CHOSE to fight for this country!

Thank you and I do indeed remember this day to recognize as well as SALUTE each and every individual who has ever played apart in keeping this country safe!

Foreign and Domestic is what the troops as well as the soldiers who are on reserve have taken an OATH to do and I am grateful!!
