Mentally Unfit to Serve… Updates at the Bottom!

America – we have a severe problem! The current President is Unfit to serve and if we don’t do something we are going to have a serious problems very soon. People need to see that things that are being done are against the Constitution of the United States.

Some people will say that I am a ‘Trump basher’ and it is not that, I am only pointing out what I see. I have seen what the hate can do, I have seen how people react to soldiers after having lived in an environment where they can’t speak freely. I was in Germany when I was in the Army and I remember the people that would see us in uniform and they were very formal and you could see the fear in them. Those same people could be seen relaxed when they saw us in civilian clothes but if they saw your military ID the same terror was there before.

We are seeing it now. Everything that is going on with Jewish community centers getting attacked and vandalized. People in Seattle woke up to see on one of the community centers the most sickening things in world.  This is so sickening due to the fact that the Holocaust is REAL HISTORY! There are people who still have the scars from when it happened. Having people disrespect the graveyards of people of different religions makes me sick.

 There are people who have done great things and been of non Christian religion and they deserve to have peace.

Mr. Trump has said that he wants to build a wall, they don’t work! He has tried twice and failed that there would be a band on specific groups of people. He claimed to care for veterans and those who have served yet the statements of that ‘We should have taken the Iraqi oil.’  That would cause another war and more veterans that would have to have services. Yet at the same time he wasn’t willing to go into combat himself.

A person who has the power that Mr Trump has needs to be sound in mind. I have not seen that. I have seen a person who is less stable than many that I know. The way that if he doesn’t get his way he acts like a child makes me want to tell someone to take him over their knee and give them a good swat and tell him that no means no.

When you look at what has happened as of late to this country you should see that the current President and most of the people in the White House are totally unfit to serve. They honestly seem to be going by the playbook of 1930’s Germany. Instead of burning down the White House they are setting a Political fire by wanting and stating that they are going to move the Embassy in Israel from where it is back to Jerusalem.

Are they honestly wanting to kill everyone in that part of the world? There are three monotheistic religions that all live and worship in the area. Do we really want to have all hell break loose due to someone has a messed up bug in their ass?!

Confused … Go Fund Me … Updates at Bottom

This is going to sound strange but there is a reason that I titled it the way I did. Go Fund Me is a site that you can set up a way to get help for things that you need. People have used it to help people with cancer, people who must deal with major life changing events can set them up as well.

I have one going and I will put the link at the bottom of this page, but this isn’t the main reason for the post.

There is a concrete plant in Kenmore that is running one as well. It is called CalPortland. They have a huge banner with all the companies that are helping them. The reason that they are running it is to help make the sight look nicer. They titled it ‘Lets Beautify This!’ According to the site they are trying to get enough money to put original art work on three 80 foot silos at the CalPortland concrete site.

Now I can understand that the City of Kenmore wants to make the city look nicer but at the same time I run into a problem with it. Why are they worried about putting art work on the silos when there are those who have trouble with the most basic things.

Now one thing that they have going for them is the fact that they are on Facebook. I got off Facebook due to the amount of drama that it was causing in my life. I made the choice due to the simple fact that I wanted to be focused on other things. My family is more important than the drama (hence no cable TV).

I have tried to get local people to realize that this isn’t happening to just me. There are others out there that are trying to use the site ‘GoFundMe’ for legit reasons and they don’t get the attention that they should because people who do go to the site, see people who are using it for a scam.

I have tried contacting the local new stations to get message out that we need to be helping those who are in need more than the ones that are only trying to do things that are not essential. While art work to make, a city look nicer is a good thing, the people who have to worry about paying the bills should be where the city/town should be working to resolve.

When a person is a service veteran and has had, trouble getting and keeping a job due to personal ‘challenges’ they shouldn’t have to be on the street to get some people say they need help. The community should be willing to work together to get things taken care of for them. The thing is that people don’t talk as much as they should. My neighbors don’t talk to me unless they want something because I try to help those that need it.

I have mentioned before that some of the kids in the complex where I live won’t help a person carry food from the store up to their apartment’s without expecting something in return. We need to get back to helping each other and look outside our own doors to see who needs it.

https://www.gofundme.com/2o5pvw4 

I still have the Go Fund Me going. I have put information on Twitter about it and I have been updating it and it seems that no one wants to help. Things have gotten so bad that my in-laws are paying my rent and the campaign the Kenmore Concrete company did got over $10,000.00 to make their silos look nicer. 

My family isn’t surviving. I have been updating it and I have stuff on several that I have written in the form of semi-short stories on several sites. No one will pay for them. I was trying to get funds to it by using the go fund me as a donation site and nothing. I have a paypal.me link that is st up under the donations tab and still nothing.

My SSDI hearing is coming up soon and there is nothing more that I can think of doing. 

 

 

 

One of my favorite memories

This is Blake Island in Washington State and it has some of my favorite memories in my childhood. My parents used to take me on their boat to this Island. The Indian dances were amazing to see, the place was so cool.

We got to go for walks in the woods and the place was wonderful.

If you are ever in the Seattle area, take the special ferry to Blake Island and enjoy the beauty that Blake Island has.


Get a reality check on the …

This is going to have some challenging topics … I don’t want to offend just educate people.

When you listen to the recent statement that the current President has said you begin to understand that he is a total ‘technically challenged’ person mentally. This is something that is going to get worse before it gets better if he stays in the office.

Skin Color: The color of you skin doesn’t show the type of person you are. The fact that the skin color shows how close to the equator area of the planet that you family came from. The fact that people make a big deal over the color of a person’s skin shows that they have no clue to the real world.

Those who have lighter skin have come from colder climates and need the lighter skin to get more Vitamin D in their skin. This is done through sun light. So here is the thing every person on this planet has very close DNA … there is no difference in a person between one from the African Continent and the European Continent.

We have been here before – WWII and the American Civil War. We don’t need to hear the racist comments coming out of the White House.


Religious Beliefs: Whether you believe in the Christian God, Islamic Prophet, or the Polytheistic ways then you have been given the ability to make the choice. When people have been told that their beliefs are wrong they lose the ability to make the choice anymore. Religious beliefs have been around for far longer than most nations have had the ability to write. The earliest forms of ‘religious beliefs’ were those that understood nature and that nature was the reason that they were alive.


We have been here before – The Jewish Holocaust during WWII, the Christians that were forced to make sacrifices to the Roman Gods or they would be put to death.


Locations of Birth: Being born in the United States or in Mexico or Europe, people are all the same. People all want to have the best life that they can. This is how it has been for all the times that people have been on this planet. The people that lived in caves learned to harness fire to keep their kids and themselves warm. We have learned to use the internet to get information.

There is nothing we can’t do if we work together. We can make this country one that we are proud of again. We need to work together and get the message that we can learn from the past, but we need to get the message out that we aren’t like the current President of this country.

Rules for Everyone …

With the way things are going in the country today I think that the Republicans that are sitting in the White House and the ones that are in the Senate and Congress need to remember that the rules are for everyone to follow. The fact is that this country is set up with a set of rules that we must follow.

It is also something that needs to be remembered that unless you are 1000% pure Native American Indian you are an immigrant in some form. The fact that there are some basic rules that everyone needs to follow must be reinforced or we have chaos all over the place. This is not a country of one skin color being better than another, one religion being better than another, this country was created to where everyone was and is equal.

We have had our bumps and hard times along the way but there are some things that we need to understand, there are three parts to the United States Government. One person can’t override the others since they don’t like the treatment that they get.

If you look at the government set up you will see that we have Judicial, Executive and Legislative branches. https://www.usa.gov/branches-of-government

Now if you look at each one you will see that they have a specific role in the way that the country works.

The Legislative Branch:

They are the Senate and House of Representatives. There are two Senators from each State in the Union. The number of congressmen and women is based on how many people live in the state. That is the reason that we have Census every 10 years. That way the people get proper representation and the states get the funding that they need.

Senators are elected for a 6-year term. They must live in the state that they are elected to represent inn the Senate and must be at least 30 years old. They must be a citizen of the United States for at least 9 years when elected. https://www.senate.gov/reference/reference_index_subjects/Senators_vrd.htm

Congressmen and Congresswomen: are elected for a 2-year term. They must live in the state that they represent but not the Congressional district that they represent. They must be 25 years old and have been a US citizen for at least 7 years when elected. https://www.senate.gov/reference/reference_index_subjects/House_of_Representatives_vrd.htm


The Executive Branch:

The Executive Branch is the President and Vice President of the United States. At the time of writing this Donald Trump is the current resident of the White House. There are several things that you need to know about the Executive Branch – the first one is a misconception that is commonly seen.

When George Washington became the first President of the United States, he made a choice to do the swearing in on a bible. The Constitution doesn’t require that the oath of office be taken with a bible, but George Washington was a Mason and he felt that the position of President was to be taken that serious. The oath, as found in the Constitution, has not changed since it was first recited: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” https://www.nps.gov/feha/learn/historyculture/washington-to-obama-inaugural-traditions.htm

If you really want to make a change in this country, then get involved. Write to people, get involved in town meetings find out if you can help on raising awareness on something. It can be doing a blog post or a Twitter message and getting others with the same views to spread the word.

Looking Ahead and Finding the Positive

I keep getting asked about looking ahead and finding something positive to write about. The thing is that people shouldn’t have to ask for something positive to look forward to.

My views are that if you can help others then you shouldn’t have to ask for a positive thing to look forward to. When you help others then you are doing positive in more ways than you can understand. Not only do you have the positive of helping the person, you have given the positive by helping someone.

I have seen people that will only help others to get attention and praise. That isn’t the way to do it. Doing it to help a person for no other reason than to help that person will make it that much more special.

This is something that happened a time ago when I was still working. I used to ride the bus to and from work and every afternoon I would see this person in a wheelchair. I started to talk and found out that they were a homeless veteran. They had served in Vietnam, lost both their legs and still had a wonderful smile.

Over the months I would talk every day with the gentleman and soon found that even though he had lost both legs he still had a smile in his heart. That year when I got my Christmas bonus, I wanted to give him something that he could use. I had more than one winter coat and the one I was wearing had been given to me. It was an old Vietnam Era bomber jacket with several unit patches on it.

I went into a local store and asked that they get in touch with the police and have someone with a wheelchair accessible vehicle come by and make sure the person was out of the cold for Christmas. They were a veteran, and could they contact someone who could help him. I went through and got some cheese in a can, beef jerky, crackers, bottled water and a large gift bag. I went and paid for the stuff and put it all in the gift bag, got a second smaller bag for the stuff that was in my jacket pockets and put the coat on the top of the bag of food.

When I gave him the bag, and he put the coat on, he started to cry. When I asked why … his old unit patch was on the jacket.

The reason I tell this story is the fact that the person who gave me the jacket got mad at me for giving it away. They didn’t care about the coat. They had planned to give it to the Goodwill. They felt it was a waste. They didn’t know the person, didn’t see the happiness or understand why.

The reason I gave him the food and coat was because he needed it and I had extra. I wanted to help and that was all.

Those are the types of things that I would like to see more of. People helping others for no reason other than helping someone.

FYI … Please watch what you say …

This is a plea from the writer of this blog site.

Please be respectful when you leave a comment.

When I go through and see a comment that is disrespectful I delete it. I don’t know if the person doesn’t care if what they are saying could be taken the wrong way or if they are trying to cause a fight with a person to make themselves feel better.

Some of the topics that I feel are important to be considered and when there is one about veterans having trouble with mental health and I see a comment that shows blatant disrespect then I delete it. This is not the place to act like that. This is a place to learn something and try to understand how people feel.

I understand that some of the topics talk about things that may go against a person’s religious beliefs but again this is to teach people and please don’t try to get the religious comments on it. If I find them then I delete them. The reason is I don’t want to have someone use the site as a platform to put other down or force their feelings on to others.

Nature’s Medicine …

With so many people in the world today and it being winter maybe it is time to look at what mother nature has for us. The reason is that those who believe in the pills and bills routine are putting chemicals in their body. With doing that they will have side effects. Now I am not saying that all medications are bad, some are known to help the body. I am not a doctor, if you have a serious medical condition get medical treatment!


When I say what mother nature has, I am talking about herbs and medicines that come from foods as well.

When you go to get rid of a fever, several people will take Tylenol

or Aspirin to take it down. But if you took a bath with some instant oatmeal in the water, your body heat will cook the oatmeal and bring your body temperature down. The water should be warm enough to where it isn’t going to make you sicker. I have done this before and it works.


When I have been congested and had trouble breathing due to a cold, I will inhale the steam of peppermint tea and it helps clear it up. I will also clean my nose and sinuses out with salt water. This is healthier and safer than taking something to clear it up and possibly dry it out. Menthol works wonders to help open things up.

Instead of taking pills I will let food be my medicine and limit the amount of medications that I put in. When I cook, I use fresh herbs and spices as often as possible. When I reduce the amount of salt that I use and put lemon juice or lime juice in the food for flavor and the flavor seems to be greater.

Try seeing what works for you. Trouble sleeping, try a relaxing tea. Stomach trouble, try some different teas before going to the doctor.

Just a suggestion.

Blessings … One Country Many Cultures

With the US being one country of many cultures, how many ways can a person give a greeting? The reason I ask this is due to a person who told me to go back to Iran when I said ‘Happy Holidays’ in four different ways. I thought it was funny since they were saying that they were a ‘good Christian’ person.

Some of the stuff I post is of an inspirational nature on Twitter, others are to show the different cultures in this great country. These can be anything from hoping that a person who is having a hard time that things get better, they can be to show that the love of a deity is there.

Here is an example of what I am famous for doing:

May Freya’s love shine on you

May Baldur be a champion in your home

May Eir keep you healthy

May you remember that Lodur and Hoenir have shared

Their gifts to you.

 

 

Does anyone recognize the gods that are spoken of in this? These are all Norse Gods, the same ones that we think of when we watch the movie Thor. So, for those that are into the ancient ways this would be nothing more than showing that someone cares.

For those that believe in the ancient ones, we don’t think inside the box. We look things in a different nature. We look at the fact that things may not always be the straight line that people would like to say is the norm.

For me, a saying that shows my love for different cultures is one that needs to be expressed and enjoyed. For out of the many we are one, stronger united and diverse at the same time.

May the sun god Aten rays shine upon you

May the storm god Tarhun smile on you

In this time of remembrance let us remember that A’as and Thoth

Gave us the gift us the gifts of wisdom and writing.

 

The blessings of love show that all are welcome and that being united country means accepting the different cultures that are there.

Your eyes are the windows to …

Have you ever heard the saying that your eyes are the windows to your soul? If that is the case, then what would one see when they looked inside? Back deep into your soul and your heart? Would they see a kind person? Would they see someone who had their own feelings first?

These are my feelings only. Some of my personal beliefs will come into play here as well.

When I am talking with someone, I like to know that the person is telling the truth. I will often look at their eyes to see if their eyes are looking around or they can look at me. I have often found that those who have nothing to hide will look at you. If they have other things on their mind or they aren’t telling the truth, then they will inadvertently look away.

I understand that there are those that wear sunglasses or have contacts, but I always have a problem with not seeing their eyes. I see things in a strange way, I can read some people by their body language and often wonder if they realize in whatever they believe that eventually must have their soul judged.

In the ancient world of Ancient Egypt, your heart that held your soul had to be in balance with Ma’at. The Ancient Egyptians believed that the way to measure that was your heart against the feather of Ma’at who was the Goddess who represented the essential harmony of the Universe.1

If the scales were balanced you went on to the afterlife, if not then you were devoured by Ammut -the Devourer of the Dead. 1 {Yes, the name is spelled correctly} She was part crocodile, part lioness and part hippo. She was the one that would prevent the wicked from entering the afterlife.

If you look at the things that were found in tombs of Ancient Egypt, they took what they would need in the afterlife with them. One of the things that they took was a text called the ‘Book of the Dead’ or ‘The Book of Coming Forth by Day’ which is more of a correct translation of the actual name.2 This is where Hollywood got it wrong – the book was not a black book it was a collection of spells that were written on papyrus. Some of the scrolls were said to be over 37 meters in length. 3 This is the one that is in the British Museum.

If your eyes are the windows to your soul, then you would want the light to shine through that is in your heart. If the heart is pure then the eyes will shine but if it is corrupt that would show as a darkness in the eyes.

According to the Christian bible in Matthew 6:22 “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single; thy whole body shall be full of light.” 4 and if you cross reference it with Luke 11:34 “Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your vision is clear, your whole body also is full of light. But when it is poor, your body is full of darkness.” And Luke 11:35 “Be careful, then, that the light within you is not darkness.” 4

The warnings seem to be the same – if your eyes are the windows to your soul, then make sure that your soul is pure because it may get weighed or called to be judged at any time. Those who chose not to pay attention will have to deal with the challenges that come from it.
