Don’t Get Me Wrong…..


Dont get me wrong ….  just because I am NOT wearing Obama 2012 election buttons and I have my own personal views with the current president that I feel it is alright for Americans to take FREEDOM OF SPEECH severely out of context!!! This billboard that was made and put up a few days ago is just so disrespectful that the people who owns the marketing billboard company needs to be fined as well as the individuals who paid for it to go up.

Do I believe in FREEDOM OF SPEECH? Yes!!! However, the way that this country is currently and is going – do not think it strange for our government to start RE-VISITING a great deal of FREEDOM legislation bills to get a better “grip” on the people! Freedom of Speech as well as The Patriot Act is surely going to be the first two pieces of legislation that will become quickly amended – mark my words! As a country, WE DO NOT know what to expect for the next 4 years from President Obama or Mitt Romney if he is elected into office!

President Barack Obama, is the ONLY American president “to date” that has been OPENLY disrespected by the citizens, to the part of disgrace from the American People. Even when our country was in the midst of the Vietnam War, the people were upset but they knew to watched what they said and understood how far to go.

In this era of presidency, the American people do not understand the phrase, ‘trade lightly” and it shows….. To compare your president with the tragedy of Colorado and sadly…poorly attempt to tie it into the Afghan War is just obnoxious! Last time I checked, America was dealing with the Middle East ever since President BUSH was in office!

American Citizens need to pay attention to REALLY what is going on in the world as a whole because I would NOT be shocked if it some kind of way, that some of the ” Democratic Ways” would start disappearing ….. Trust me, we do NOT need, deserve or want a dictator ruling our country! If we were in another country, citizens would have been killed by these acts of disrespect.

It is now 2012 ….start comparing all of the different types of legislation that will start all of sudden changing! You dont have to be into politics to understand that things are and will change when you least expected!

Parenting

Mother + Son = Coolness!


Mothers and Sons……have a really special type of relationship and it is imperative that it is groomed and molded correctly. I teach my son so many things and allow him to discover things about himself, God and even how he interacts with me. I give him space to learn and to grow…..and I GLOW in the fact that he always asks questions about EVERYTHING.

It takes one woman twenty years to make a man of her son – and another woman twenty minutes to make a fool of him….that sounds harsh but it is the truth! However, I think that via raising a son……. A son is a son till he takes him a wife, a daughter is a daughter all of her life. Maybe it is a woman / female bond that never goes away and women just make a priority.

He who can be a good son will be a good father so that why it is imperative that we make sure as a mother we POUR INTO OUR SONS as much positivity as possible. We also have to be LIVING examples and remember that their first few girlfriends they may compare to us – so “watch” who they bring home! LOL

My son talks about getting married and having 4 kids! He says that he wants his wife to be and act like me but he wants her to be white! I giggled to myself and THEN asked him if color matters to him? He said no mom…. but when I am at school or out, more black girls act ghetto more than white girls….

I said ok.. I can see your point in that and you do not want that type of girlfriend when you get older BUT what if when you get older – you see black girls acting like nice ladies? He said maybe I may change my mind but I just want them to act like you.

I HAVE TO BE HONEST…………….. for a moment that had me worried… I do not raise or want “no momma’s boys” but I do want my son to respect me..honor me…. listen to my opinions and sometimes take my advice because he trust what I am saying to him.

EVENTUALLY as we look back on how we raise our kids…….

Your son at five is your master, at ten your slave, at fifteen your double, and after that, your friend or your foe, depending on his bringing up!! LOL Little joke but it has humor AND truth to it… My son is 10 right now and I rip and run EVERYWHERE with and for that boy. I put my events around his schedule!!! So does that mean I am his slave?…no but I am choosing to just put him first.  Giving your son a SET OF skills in life  is better than giving him money, fame and power…

I am just very grateful that we talk about any and everything – even when it makes me CRINGE! I thank God for the genuine, honest, loving, Christian, caring, nurturing- open relationship.
