Have you ever watched a movie and the characters reminded you of yourself in some obscure way? Exposes your faults, quirks triumphs and failures. Interesting to watch and see things in a different perspective, looking right back at you. It's soul searching, cathartic, narcissistic, weepy and more. A couple hours on the couch, and it wasn't pay per view, so cheaper than a shrink! Don't ask me the name of the movie, because you would never see in it what I saw.

Winding down on the third half of the year, I am finding out a lot about myself. Not always good, but facing the music has been a learning experience. A lot of improvement needed. Just a few more months….to Judgment day!

I need to kick my self in the butt and get going. My goal is to move out of the family home and downsize into the retirement home. Ahhh, when you get that AARP card you start thinking that maybe it's time to think about all the fun those retired people have, NO WORRIES. To have no worries, I have to have less. Simple fact. Less space, less stuff, less housework, less yard work, less bills, etc. It's a strong thought in my head, just have to lay the ground work. I'm working on it, just hope when I find where I want to live, I will be ready. First things first.... remove wallpaper! Have a great sunshiny, summer weekend.

PLEASE NOTE THIS POST IS BEING TYPED IN CAPITALS BECAUSE I AM SCREAMING!
I AM A TEA KETTLE THAT IS READY TO BLOW MY TOP. FIRST LETS START OFF BY SAYING WE ARE DIPPING THE ENTIRE HUMAN RACE IN A TEAL DYE. TEAL IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE COLORS OF THE MOMENT, SO TEAL IT IS. NOW WE ARE ALL THE SAME COLOR. THIS WAS DONE SO THAT THIS POST CAN NOT BE MADE INTO A RACIAL ISSUE, BECAUSE IT IS NOT....IT IS A HUMAN ISSUE- PERIOD! WE ARE ALL BORN INTO THIS WORLD AS HUMANS, REGARDLESS OF OUR COLOR, SEX, RELIGIOUS BELIEFS, ECONOMIC SITUATION, ETC., AND HAVE THE ABILITY TO THRIVE AS DECENT HUMAN BEINGS. "LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS" SOUND FAMILIAR? I DON'T KNOW HOW THINGS HAVE GOTTEN SO OUT OF HAND. I KEEP SEEING AND HEARING OF STORIES THAT CONTINUE TO BLOW MY MIND.
CASE NUMBER 1- NYC WAS SUED BY TEAL FIREFIGHTERS WHO CLAIMED THE ENTRANCE TEST WAS UNFAIR TO TEAL PEOPLE. JUST THIS MORNING THE FOLLOWING WAS SAID....
"Blacks don't fare as well as whites on this test, probably due to the disparity of education,"
I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT I DON'T CARE IF MY FIREFIGHTER IS TEAL, I JUST WANT HIM/HER TO BE ABLE TO DO THE JOB. I WANT TO KNOW THAT HE/SHE CAN PASS A TEST THAT PUTS HIM/HER IN THE POSITION TO SAVE MY LIFE. PERIOD!
CASE NUMBER 2- "ONLINE BUSINESS' ARE SELLING CHILDREN'S SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS" ????? ONLINE BUSINESS??? NO - CROOKS ARE SELLING CHILDREN'S SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS. WE NEED TO STOP THIS INSANITY. IDENTITY THEFT SHOULD BE MANDATORY LIFE IN PRISON AND WE NEED TO GO OUT AND FIND THESE PEOPLE. THIS IS A PREMEDITATED ACT THAT PREYS ON GOOD CITIZENS. START PROSECUTING THESE PEOPLE AND PUT THEM BEHIND BARS FOR LIFE AND WATCH THIS CRIME ALL BUT GO AWAY. LIFE IN JAIL-PERIOD!
CASE NUMBER 3- WHY ARE WE GLORIFYING MISBEHAVING PEOPLE ON A DAILY BASIS? WHY ARE WE GIVING THE CAST OF THE JERSEY SHORE RAISES TO ACT LIKE DISRESPECTFUL, LOSER HUMAN BEINGS? IT IS BECOMING INCREASINGLY MORE DIFFICULT TO RAISE CHILDREN TO DO THE RIGHT THING ANYMORE. CANCEL THAT PROGRAM-PERIOD!
WHICH BRINGS ME TO THIS ISSUE-
CASE NUMBER 4- IT HAS BEEN BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION THAT MANY COLLEGE AGE STUDENTS THAT GREW UP IN MY COMMUNITY ARE ON FOOD STAMPS OR AS THEY CALL IT NOW "THE BRIDGE CARD". HELP ME UNDERSTAND THIS ONE???? FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND CHILDREN THAT ARE FROM MIDDLE CLASS FAMILIES ARE NOW DECLARING THAT BECAUSE THEY ARE OFF AT SCHOOL THEY HAVE ALL OF A SUDDEN BECOME INDIGENT. ISN'T THAT PART OF THE COLLEGE EXPERIENCE, LEARNING TO SURVIVE ON MINIMAL MONEY?? ISN'T THAT WHY RAMEN NOODLES WERE INVENTED? WHAT HAPPENED TO WORKING WHILE IN COLLEGE AND PAYING FOR YOUR OWN FOOD. THIS ONE BOGGLES MY MIND. DO PARENTS UNDERSTAND WHAT IS GOING ON HERE? ALLOWING YOUR CHILD TO OBTAIN A BRIDGE CARD, WHICH IN MY BOOK, IS UNDER FALSE PRETENCES, IS FRAUD. I DOUBT ANY OF THESE YOUNG ADULTS ARE HUNGRY. WE ARE TEACHING OUR KIDS THAT IT IS OK TO TAKE TAXPAYERS MONEY WHEN YOU DON'T NEED IT. I KNOW WE ARE ALL TIRED OF ALL THE OTHER PEOPLE RAPING OUR SYSTEM (IE- FREE CELL PHONES, CABLE, INSURANCE, HOUSING, FOOD, ETC) BUT UNTIL WE RIGHT THIS SYSTEM OF ENTITLEMENT, IT IS GOING TO CONSUME US ALL. TWO WRONGS DON'T MAKE A RIGHT. WE NEED TO TEACH OUR CHILDREN RIGHT FROM WRONG AND A DR.'S SON OBTAINING A BRIDGE CARD WHILE HE IS AWAY AT COLLEGE IS WRONG... SHAME ON THEM. THIS IS HOW GENERATIONS ON WELFARE GET STARTED. START DOING THE RIGHT THING-PERIOD.
THIS COUNTRY HAS TO GET BACK TO COMMON SENSE. WE ARE SO FAR GONE, I'M NOT SURE IT IS POSSIBLE. CAN WE START FROM SCRATCH? I WISH WE COULD, BUT OUR WHOLE WORLD IS BEING DRIVEN BY MORALLY INEPT PEOPLE WHO NEED TO GET BACK TO COMMON SENSE AND BASIC HUMAN DECENCY. I'M NOT GIVING UP YET, BUT DAILY I FIND IT HARD TO SWALLOW ALL THE INSANITY.
