Time flies...and on a serious note...

This past weekend we celebrated my girls 2nd and 4th birthdays...I just can't believe how fast time goes. I remember snuggling them in my arms when they were days old and now they can barely fit in my arms.
But instead of reminiscing, which I could do all day, I'm thinking about looking foward to the future, a future that I want to know is going to be bright and full of promise for them. Now thankfully, I know that as long as they are trusting in the Lord and relying on Him, they will have the best lives possible. I'd also like to know though that there are going to be opportunities for them and that they are not going to have to be "footing" the bill from my generation's sense of entitlement and lack of caring what is happening in our country and world.
So, on that note, as I've spoke of before...do your research and come November, VOTE! Know what is happening in our country, Know what Obamacare means to you and how it's going to impact you (because it doesn't just have to do with health care, there are homeschooling laws in there too, SERIOUSLY), Know that you need to have your ID to vote (which seems like common sense to me).
Please think about how this is going to affect you and the ones you care about for years and years to come, because it will.
To end on a happy note though...here's a picture of my birthday girls...

George Zimmerman is a yahoo PERIOD So is the Sanford PD Chief PERIOD

First, I'm sorry for the long hiatus...I was a bit disheartened by Cain's exit and the bleek outlook of the GOP candidates but I'm starting to feel a bit encouraged by Santorum's wins and the fact that Americans seem to not be buying into all the media hype.

I signed the change.org petition for action to be taken against George Zimmerman and the Sanford PD and for the feds to investigate the whole situation before this story was even making headlines. Now it's making headlines every day and rightfully so. Trayvon Martin did not deserve to be shot by such a ignorant yahoo. He did not deserve to be followed by George Zimmerman or even to have called 911 in the first place because he was walking in the neighborhood that he was. The Sanford PD should have immediately investigated and not ruled Zimmerman's actions self defense, what was Trayvon going to throw skittles at him?
Trayvon deserves justice and his face should be all over the news to be remembered and his family should be going around telling everyone what a wonderful boy he was.
Zimmerman deserves the death penalty. If you don't agree with that, that's another post I can write my thoughts about at another time. He shot and took the life of a defenseless boy that he was pursuing when 911 told him NOT to. Don't waste my tax dollars sitting in jail.
Now what I do have more of an issue with is how the media is twisting this into something else, into a race issue. I know what Zimmerman said in the 911 call. Zimmerman is hispanic so then it's really a minority against minority thing that's going on. BUT I don't think that's it at all. Zimmerman was just acting as a vigilante bestowed upon him by himself in his community and is an idiot. So let's not turn this into something it's not. Thankfully, you don't hear about these kinds of things happening everyday.
It just really got to me when I logged into Yahoo and see the headline of President Obama saying, "If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon." In the words of my beloved Judge Judy, "If I had taller parents, I'd be 5'9."

Do you know what it is to be complacent?

Merriam Webster defines complacency as "self-satisfaction especially when accompanied by unawareness of actual dangers or deficiencies ".

My generation (not the entire generation, but a very large portion) seems to be very complacent in their own lives, even if said lives are not much to be proud of, and seems to be very complacent about politics and what is happening in our economy and the upcoming election.
I'm not going to speak to being complacent in your own life....you should know if you are complacent and if you are, you need to do something to better yourself and your situation.
I am going to speak to being complacent about politics and our economy...If we continue to not be involved in what is happening, you're not going to like where our country is at in 5 years. Heck, I don't like where our country is at now, but I can't even imagine in 5, 10 years.
If there is one thing that I would hope you do this year regarding our country, it's VOTE. But don't JUST vote, do your research. Know who you are voting for. Don't vote for someone because a supporter happened to hand you a sheet as you stood in line waiting to vote, don't vote for someone because ABC News had a lot of positive things to say about them, don't vote for someone because they appeared on the Jay Leno show and you now feel you have all the info you need about them to vote for them.
DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH...know where each person stands on issues that are important. Don't be complacent...I don't what to be a 3rd world country and I hope you don't either...and I realize that might sound extreme but it's a very real possibility in the current climate.
I think Democrats and Republicans have it wrong and our current system of having Senators that make a career out of it is not what George Washington intended. But we need to do something to get our country back to the top and that starts with you and your vote.

It's nice to see things through others' eyes....sometimes ;)

So as the title of this post says....SOMETIMES it's nice to see things through others' eyes and I had one of those moments over the weekend.
We were out to eat with my brother and his girlfriend and as we're all sitting around the table chatting. Mady, my 3 1/2 year old, says to Cara, my 1 1/2 year old, "what does a dog say sissy?" and Cara answers her with a very clear "woof, woof".
My brother and his gf both stopped and were like whoa, what was that, did they just talk to each other. Mady proceeded to ask Cara about sheep, cows, and ducks and Cara answered her each time. At the time, I was like, "oh yeah, they "talk" all the time". For a while, they've "communicated", Cara with her points and grunts, etc. but Mady always knew what she was trying to convey. But now, yes, Cara actually answered her sister with words and because I'm around it 24/7, it had kind of blown right over me.
Thankfully, I had my brother and his gf to give me a view from the outside and was able to see what great sisters they are becoming (in between the bickering and not sharing)  :)

You can't keep me from my Chick-fil-A

As I've written before in another post, I <3 Chick-fil-A! There are so many reasons and you can refer back to that post if you'd like here .So recently I've seen lots of smack talk about my beloved CFA on the internet. And as Michael Scott (The Office) said something to the effect of if it's on the internet, it must be true. FALSE.
Last week apparanently there was an incident at a CFA in Cali where an associate put some derogatory names on a receipt for 2 Asian boys. CFA being the stand up establishment that they are, stepped forward and took responsiblity for the incident on behalf of their yahoo employee who did it, and apologized. I saw this on facebook. Then in the comments under their status, there was all sorts of things going on, lots of support for CFA, and then people bringing up the anti-gay thing again, people saying that CFA forces their "friend" to go to Bible study on Sundays. CRAZINESS!
So on that note is where I come in....I see it as a version of the telephone game, remember you used to play when you were 10? 1 person started with a sentence and then you whispered it down the row and by the time you got to the 10th person, it wasn't what it started as. Same here. Chick-fil-A does not make anyone go to Bible study. Yes, they are closed on Sunday so that their employees can spend time with their families and relax, and yes, if the employee chooses, they can go to church.
The anti-gay thing....I don't know where people are getting their information from when it comes to this or where they are getting numbers as far as how much money is donated by Chick-fil-A but CFA is a PRIVATELY owned company. Truett Cathy built his company on Biblical principles and faith and look where it's gotten him...somewhere pretty great, I'd say! Since they are PRIVATELY owned, they don't need to answer to stockholders or the public in general when in comes to what they do with their money.
On the donating note, our local CFA donated and supported the Buddy Walk which raises money for Down Syndrome Awareness and Support for families which is something that is close to my heart. This makes me want to go to CFA even more so to know that they are helping out our communities!
I will continue to go to Chick-fil-A. They have the best service, best food, and are a company that cares about their employees and the communities they servce. I still, and always will, love Chick-fil-A!
And if you are still going to not go to CFA because of this, that, or the other thing...enjoy your McDonald's ;)

I'm super bummed that my man Herman has "suspended" his campaign. He's out, I know he's out. He can't successfully come back from this in a few weeks. I wish he could and if he does, well then I might start watching out for those tigers in our neighborhood that my daughter wanted me to warn her about.

oh, maybe I shouldn't have said "my man" Herman, now you all think him and I have had like a 10 year affair, right?

It stinks...it all stinks...as in poo like everything that those women said is poo. They were put up to it by someone who already thinks they know who's going to be our next president. The women who alleged sexual harrassment were all of very questionable character. They pretty much make a living off of settling sexual harrassment or other workplace complaints. The last woman who claimed they had a 13 year affair had nothing to back that up with besides a cell phone number that was Herman's. How many cell phone numbers of the opposite sex do you have? Does that mean you're having an affair with them?

My man was surging in the polls and "they" knew they had to do something about it. So they attacked his 9-9-9 plan..."it has no merit", "it won't work", "people will pay more in tax"...blah, blah, blah...well the American people weren't buying what they were being fed this time. So "they" got back to thinking....and I imagined it went something like this...from the Veggie Tales' King Darius Suite..."we could use him as a foot stool or a table to play scabble on, then tie him up, beat him up, and throw him outta Babylon".
Although instead of any of those grand ideas, they said let's pull some women out of the woodwork who can claim infedility and such. Well apparently, it worked on Herman, which just stirs my stew. Because good old Mr. Gingrich has told us how he's cheated on his wives 53 times and apparently that's just fine. Good for you Newty boy! Way to get some! Bleh!

"Allegedly" the race is now between Newt and Romney....how about a fork to my left hand? I'd say Paul but I know he's too much of a loon to get elected by all of America.

Here's my call to Mr. Trump to throw his hat in the ring...and if he won't...then Judge Judy will be receiving a letter from me very shortly...

welcome to socialist hollywood...not that we didn't already know it...

but now let's just make it much more obvious....

cue Justin Timberlake's new movie In Time.

Now I'm not going to lie, I might have previously thought that JT was the hottest thing since sliced bread, say when I was 16 years old. And I might even still be keeping my fingers crossed for that N*Sync album Justin mentioned in the foreword of his album from 2002 that still has not come to fruition. BUT thankfully, I have matured and know what is trying to be force fed to me through the media.

So I was reading an article in my local newspaper about this new movie, In Time, and the whole concept is ridiculous but you put Justin Timberlake and a bunch of other hollywood starlets and of course you'll have everyone from 16 years old to 35 year olds flocking to see it. And of course, this is their target audience who they want to endoctrinate with the socialist agenda.
Here's the article I was reading....http://www.mcall.com/entertainment/movies/mc-amanda-seyfried-20111028,0,7559769.story

I came across this sentence and thought "ah, there is it"...."With the clock ticking, they fall in love and decide the time is ripe for a re-distribution of the wealth."

Re-distribution of wealth....now if that doesn't sound familiar...let's tax the rich and give to the poor.

So now, let's put some pretty faces on this lovely idea of redistribution of wealth and feed it to young Americans.

Justin, can you please stop trying to push this propaganda and get in the studio with the rest of N*Sync (who are just waiting for you to call) and make that next album?
