Military Budget-Dirty Little Secret

Mainly? The Right "respect" Veterans, idolize and honor soldiers in front of them or at Sporting events, celebrations and parades. They do not want to spend any part of their budget on military that is not going towards weaponry. The Left get uncomfortable around the topic of soldiers. They dislike the wars' but want to support a human being. But it is upsetting to think about homeless injured veterans & everyone is so focused on themselves and so many OTHER political issues, they just don't have time to focus on Soldiers."

SNAP Home Delivery

These are human beings. US citizens. Do they not get to make decisions for themselves? Do they have less rights for themselves & their family due to their yearly income or being in poverty? Why are our most vulnerable citizens always a target for this President? Why do you, Trump, pick on the weak, ill, impoverish, elderly, and disabled? Why do you continue to discriminate against all kinds of human beings that are YOUR CITIZENS?

Hospital Day

Today has stressed me out. I have stayed surprisingly calm during the whole thing. Driver came at 6:20 am instead of 7:20 am this morning for our 6 appointments & 2 tests at my son's hospital. We were dropped off over an hour before our 1st appointment. My son's hearing test went well. His hearing …

Night Before Christmas 2017

'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the home The Nuclear family was busy creating atmosphere and tone. The tree was decorated, every branch filled.  Presents were hidden, a mound later parents would build. Tinsel & stockings were hung by the chimney with lots of care. Gramps with egg nog in hand on the porch, napping in rocking chair. Dinner was finished, Chinese take out,  tradition from Mom's Jewish family no doubt. The family dog slept on a bed next to the tree.  She snored more than Gramps, how could that possibly be? Their holiday were jumbled, activities pulled from all ways of life. While charming for the children, they caused mom & dad strife. Little sister was pulling a toy across the floor Both children in Jammie's, but Big brother was sore. "Why are we leaving cookies out?! There IS no Santa Claus!" Mom's jaw dropped. She shot her son a glare. A gaze that could have lit the fireplace but the son did not care. "Reindeer can't fly, they aren't aerodynamic." He continued with glee "THAT high in the air, they would all freak and panic." Dad knew his son was inquisitive, inciteful & scientific. Strong qualities in a skilled leader, in his future, terrific. In a child on Christmas, these qualities were tough. Dad swatted at his son's hair, said "Hey, knock it off!" It was too late, the damage had been done. four year old sister dropped her toy, no longer having fun "Santa's not real??" Her eyes started to swell.  The bomb had been dropped, tears from her eyes fell. Mom stepped in- into her arms she pulled the toddler. Unsure of what would fix this, she mumbled "Ask your father" Dad knew tangible evidence was the best method "What would prove to you the existence of Santa?" Son pondered for some time & then said "On my new phone, I want a selfie of Santa.  In this house, no photoshop, a sign & his hand up" "Uh ok..." "Not finished. A letter from Santa, personalized & intimate.  He should answer questions about Christmas, HOW does he do it?" Then little sister piped up. "The cookies should be gone" She nodded at brother as they teamed up against dad & mom.

Another Mass Shooting

I have stayed quiet on my blog about gun control. I have stayed quiet during mass shooting out of sadness mostly, and an inability to pull myself into a coherent state where my thoughts & ideas weren't emotionally driven. It has been 1 day since our last mass shooting. Before that, it had been 3 …
