Maybe It’s ME –


There is just something very AWKWARD about this photo and what it is suppose to mean! LOL – What does this interesting pose stand for in this photo? It makes me take a pause-

Okay I know that 2012 means that this is the CURRENT year that we are living in …… but what message are they trying to convey exactly and who is their target audiences? (not me)

Okay I do get that the African American man on the right is the current president of the United States and the Caucasion/ Anglo Saxon  man on the left is the current Vice President of the United States. ugghh –

What I do not get is why they are both standing together with the year 2012 above their heads!

LOL – Are they both trying to say that they are the BEST choice for this country in November?

UGGGHHHH – compared to Mitt Romney and his new running mate, Paul Ryan…..I guess that this photo does represent a SEMI – CHANCE of a normal life. Sad thing is that on the Democratic side, there were NO other options because no one else stepped up to run against President Obama…..

It is just very strange because any and everyone has had complaints on how he has run this country but no one came forward to try to make a difference on the Democratic side….

Sure, I do know that running a campaign at this stature can be a strain and cause a very substaintial pinch in a candidates personal finances – however there are some that had the finances but obviously felt that it “was not worth it” at this point in time to challenge him and his “colorful policies”…… ( can someone help me send SMOKE SIGNALS ) because this country is in dire need of help in all aspects of the forum.

ugghhh- Now tell me again why we cannot change legislation to allow a president to be voted in for a 3rd term if THE PEOPLE elect him or her?  Also, does anyone know how to contact former Congressman J.C.Watts, Governor Christie and former New York City Mayor Guliani?

Graphic but REALITY

Forty-nine decapitated bodies were found Sunday dumped on a highway connecting northern Mexico with the U.S. border. The incident appears to be the latest salvo in an escalating war between Mexico’s two dominant drug cartels….

For starters….Sounds like the Mexican government needs a little HELP!

It’s Mexico, and it is sooooo unfortunate but this type of thing happens all the time. If AMERICA does not STOP their back alley sneaky contributions to the drug billion dollar business, we shall all see headlines stating….

 

BREAKING NEWS: Coming soon to a state in the US near you!

Think about it people… How can we have gotten Sadaam Hussein and other terrorist in other countries thousands of miles aways BUT  cannot STOP crime that has been going on for years within a country that is a ” HOP – SKIP and a JUMP” from us?

Hmm.. maybe this is why Arizona is so gun ho on “some ” of their new legislation that has caused an uproar. I am NOT SAYING that people should have to walk around and be pulling out papers like the Jewish Immigrants were sadly FORCED to do by what ” I call ” The German DEMON – Adolph Hitler.

However on the other hand some could say…. See why we need to control our southern border?!@$%#@!

 So… in a nut shell –  Thank you to all the politicians who support the Drug War. Your drug prohibition policies will only bring more violence just like the Prohibition against Alcohol brought out violence!

For them to be that bold to leave 49 HEADLESS and some HANDLESS bodies in the middle of the STREET not only were they sending a sign and a message but it shows the control that they have over the country that they live in!

It is almost to the point of saying that “The War on Drugs” –  is over and We lost!!! I mean this is some real serious – dangerous – scary and mind boggling stuff to say the least!~

The bodies cant even be identified because there are no hands, some have no feet and there are certainly NO HEADS to identify the bodies! So it is like whatever FAMILY is missing relatives – ” they have to assume” that one of the 45 bodies were theirs! That is crazy and the sad thing about it is that AMERICA is not placing a HOLD for AMERICANS to stop going into Mexico!

We used to have a “ban on entering” certain countries like Cuba and the Americans who were visiting and already living there was told to FLEE quickly due to their safety due to them being Americans. I wonder why our country is not doing the same thing for Mexico?

Yeah, I keep forgetting that crime – drugs – killings – bombings is a very lucrative BILLION DOLLAR business for The United States as well as Mexico becuase it will indeed scare all of the tourists away, the kids on Spring Break, the weddings and all the already booked and paid for family vacations!…..

College Kids who want their Spring Break? Go to Miami!

Families that want to go to the beach? Go to Maryland!

Couples that want to get married? Go to California!

Tourists that want to sight see? Go to Virginia & learn about U.S. History!

It may not be want you want or expected but remember…..THE WORLD is fighting to get into OUR country and OUR country is fighting to visit others!

GO FIGURE! Americans have everything and want to leave…Foreigners have nothing and want to come here and get everything….. backwards.com!

Politicians / Government Officials do not care that killings make them rich until “it touches” them across personal lines! However, they all need to understand by now that there has NOT been a government official who has been apart of being apart of the Drug Cartel in any facet who has not been killed, monitored and threatened.

” If I know the names” of the main Mexican Drug Cartels………

  • Gulf Cartel
  • Beltran-Leyva
  • Los Zetas
  • Sinaloa Cartel
  • Tijuana Cartel
  • Juarez Cartel
  • La Familia

Then of course you know that  The America Government knows the names of the main cartels, the chain of command, their command posts, their route in and out of the country to distribute, their landing destinations etc!

They need to take action…espcially since it is literally living next door to us at this juncture. As ‘tough” as Texas law makers are, I am really shocked that more is not and has not been done – makes you wonder huh!!…..

Dear ( ME )

Starting AGAIN….


The number one thing you need when you are trying to start over is a solid plan.  Big life changes can be paralyzing.  They can leave you feeling afraid, confused and hopeless.

A good plan will help you to overcome your paralysis.  It will guide you step-by-step through a process to decide what you want and how to get it.  After all, you wouldn’t start a trip without a destination in mind and a map to follow, now would you?

 

Take an honest inventory of your life.  Many people find this very difficult.  They refuse to accept that they are starting over from scratch.  Instead, they bury their heads in the sand and try to continue living like they always have.  If you really need to start over, then denying it simply won’t work.

Most of us started out in life from a clean slate.  We built our lives from scratch once so surely we can use some of the same methods to do it again.  It is a stretch, but recalling how you did it the first time is probably a very useful exercise.

I suggest that you set two or three short-range goals that you want to accomplish in the next three months.  Also, I recommend looking out a year from now and envisioning where you want yourself to be.  Be realistic but also stretch yourself.

It is probably hard to see now, but often when forced to rebuild our lives, we find the new one is even better than the old.

Birthday / Black History Month


I am indeed honored that my birthday shares the same month as my African American Heritage! To be apart of such a rich history is a blessing indeed.

With it being 2012, you can see so many changes that the black community have been able to accomplish over the decades and it is a blessing to  see.

More than 2.5 million blacks who registered for the draft in World War II, about 909,000 served in the Army. In 1944 there were over 700,000 blacks in the Army; this represented the greatest proportion of blacks to total Army strength in World War II. So at its peak, only 8.7 percent of the Army — instead of the planned 10 percent — was black. In June 1945 blacks accounted for less than 3 percent of all men assigned to combat duty in the Army.

About 78 percent of all black males — and only 40 percent of all white males-in the Army were placed in the service branches (including quartermaster, engineer, and transportation corps). Approximately 167,000 blacks served in the Navy during the war, about 4 percent of total Navy strength; and over 17,000 blacks enlisted in the Marine Corps, 2.5 percent of all marines. “Despite the multitude of problems with which the Army was faced in the use of Negro troops in World War II,” historian Ulysses Lee would later write in the Army’s official account of the war, “at the war’s end a greater variety of experience existed than had ever before been available within the American Military Establishment”: 

They had been used by more branches and in a greater variety of units, ranging from divisions to platoons in size and from fighter units to quartermaster service companies in the complexity of duties. They had been used in a wider range of geographical, cultural, and climatic conditions than was believed possible in 1942.

All of this was true of white troops as well, but in its manpower deliberations and in its attempts to wrest maximum efficiency and production from the manpower allotted to it, the Army found that it was the 10 percent of  American manpower which was Negro that spelled a large part of the difference between the full and wasteful employment of available American manpower of military age 44.

Just day dreaming, let alone thinking of all of the things that blacks were apart of, really makes me strive to do better for myself as well as honor what they did for me! 

I think we should honor all of the African Americans that have made positive changes to our society all year round.
 
Those black individuals make a hole thorough our hearts because so many of them get sent away from their parents and having a month stand out for this purpose sheds light and opens eyes to those who think indifferently about people of color.
 
Much of the technology and conveniences we have still today were developed by African Americans and it needs to be acknowledged just like anyone else on this planet that has made strides for the human RACE in general, Which sheds tears into or eyes. Black history month also tells of the injustices that were done during slavery and the many that stood together to overcome that.
 
 
 I think Martin Luther King Jr. was a good role in Black History Month because he was the one who said “Fight hate with love.”
 As a people we need to know that we are STRONG…… we have the ability to make something out of NOTHING!!! So let’s keep moving toward greatness….
