will cut taxes – cut taxes for 95 percent of all working families, because, in
an economy like this, the last thing we should do is raise taxes on the middle
class. I’m a warrior for the middle
class.” –Barack Obama
single time you show your face or open your mouth my whole being screams “liar!” I have tried to persuade my inner logic that
there is no possible way for one human being to be that incredibly dishonest
and underhanded, but you have done nothing but prove the fact that you are time
and again. Upon receiving my paycheck
this week, once again it seems that you have lied yet again. Sad to say, it didn’t even shock me this time
but that didn’t mean I was any less disappointed in your tactics and the
repercussions that once again landed at my feet and not yours.
am as about middle class as they come. I
work extremely hard for every single thing that I have ever gotten in my
life. You have decided that it is okay
to reach into my paycheck and take 44% of what I earn. No that is not an exaggeration as I calculated
it with my jaw dropped to the floor when I realized how little of my check I
was actually taking home. I don’t recall
you being at my side as I worked over 60 stress-filled hours each week. Yet you are more than willing to dip your
hand into my money as you vacation for the umpteenth time in Hawaii (or
elsewhere) since you have taken office.
That accounts for almost half of my income and yet you swear that you
are for the middle class. All I see is
that you are for the middle class dropping below the poverty line as we sweat
to pay for all those whom you have vowed to give welfare without any checks,
balances or time limitations. Do you
understand why I have an issue with this?
I suppose you don’t because you are not personally affected by it. Well, that and from everything that I have
seen it is your objective to singlehandedly destroy everything for which the
United States stands. This is a great
way to pull a Country down to a dictatorship . . . tax everyone to death so
there is no point of working and just get on welfare and then on top of that,
take away our Second Amendment rights.
will proudly stand and say that I did not vote for you in either election. I will also proudly stand against everything
that you are attempting to do. If you
thought that bringing down the United States of America would be an easy
project well you didn’t account for those of us that will fight you to the
bitter death. I will not stand idly by
as you try nor will I just accept your lies and manipulations. You see I have a brain and I also have a
backbone. You will not win, but I will
give you that you have four more years to give it your best try and anger those
of us that still believe in America.
is German for "favorite," and there's this fun little award running
around the webiverse. My friend Katie
nominated me, and I'm so glad that someone actually reads this blog that I have
decided to join the fun. Here are my tasks:
11 random things about myself.
Answer the 11 questions my nominator set for me.
that I am going to be a party pooper because I’m supposed to nominate 11 other
bloggers, but since I don’t think 11 other people actually read my blog I’m
going to choose the skip that part.
However if by chance you read this and want to play, please feel
1. For my 40th birthday
(which is in a couple of years still) I am refusing to spend it in this
Country. Not sure where I want to go
though. . . suggestions?
2. I’m more excited to have
my library done in my basement than any other room in the entire house . . .
that includes the kitchen and that says a lot!
3. I got a tablet for Christmas and I have no
idea how it works.
4. I think ice cream should be its own food group.
5. With the exception of the 3 hours I am at church, I
wear pjs all day long on Sundays.
6. I would much rather be in hot weather verses
cold weather and do not understand people who like it the other way around.
7. One of the hardest things I do on a daily
basis is deciding what to eat and how to make it for just one.
8. I have never been river rafting, but have
always wanted to try it.
9. There is a freckle on the tip of my nose which
I can see all the time.
up I had the mouth of a trucker and still swear under my breath more than I
care to admit.
11. When I was little I always wanted to
be a marine biologist when I grew up.
here are the answers to your questions:
old were you when you got your first kiss, or alternatively, how old were you
when you first thought you were "in love" with someone? I didn’t
get my first kiss until I was 18, but it was pretty magical.
is your favorite color for a front door? Red
. . . would you expect anything different.
song are you slightly embarrassed to admit you love? Anything by Boys to Men . . . it makes me smile to listen to them.
you could do anything you wanted for a day, what would that be? Explore some place new in the world. There is nothing like being in a new place
and meeting new people and experiencing new cultures. Love it!
fictional character are you in love with? Robin
Hood . . . this is a topic that I really have fun discussing. So many from which to choose!
whom are you most likely to argue... and least likely to argue? I’m most likely to argue with my boss, but
only because he likes to push my bottons on purpose and I am least likely to
argue with my dad.
is your favorite holiday, and why? Holidays
are not always emotionally easy on single people . . . so I will go with Saint
Patrick’s day because there isn’t much attached to it. :)
is your favorite thing you have created yourself? Food .
. . always creating new things that make my mouth and tummy extremely happy.
was your favorite toy as a child? A stretchy
incredible hulk . . . it was the best thing ever but mostly we just kept trying
to break it so we could see what was inside him.
What is something that you'd like to improve?
11. What act of service
might you perform for a total stranger? It
might just be something that is incredibly small, but I love to make people
smile just by eye contact and smiling at them.
It makes me all warm and fuzzy inside when someone walks by me and my
smile is contagious. I also like to let
people go in front of me at the grocery store line. It is again something so small but people are
always so grateful . . . especially moms with screaming children.
Female does not automatically equate cats
the last month, I have been asked at least a dozen times if I have a cat. When the answer comes back that I absolutely
do not, the follow up question is always why when it would be such great
company for my situation. Most are
appalled at my response and I have probably managed to offend a soul or two,
but seriously who thinks it is kosher to insinuate that one is an old maid and
therefore must have a cat, if not cats?!
the exception of my darling nieces and nephews that are now getting to the age
that they comprehend that I’m not married and don’t understand why, the
marriage questions largely went away as I climbed into my mid-30s. However it is slowly being replaced with the
question of not just animals, but specifically with cats. Let me clue everyone in . . . in my world the
only good kind of cat is a dead one.*
have a super fabulous friend that had some great responses to the question of
why she wasn’t married while in her late 20s.
My favorite one was she used to tell people that she wanted just one
more summer in her hot pink tube top. It
used to make me smile and still does just thinking about how it sent the asker
away flustered because they were certainly not expecting that answer. I wish I could come up with something as
clever when asked about cats.
those cat lovers of the world out there, don’t get your panties in a wad that I
feel that way. Hey it just means that
there are more of them for you to take home and for you to love. To each their own and my own does not like cats.
