Should Be More Letters Like This!

One Pissed Off Housewife


Thought you might like to read this letter to the editor ~ ever notice how some people just seem to know how to write a letter?. This one surely does!

This was written by a Canadian woman, but oh how it also applies to the U.S., U.K. and Australia
THIS ONE PACKS A FIRM PUNCH

Here is a woman who should run for Prime Minister!
Written by a housewife in New Brunswick , to her local newspaper. This is one ticked off lady...

'Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was it or was it not, started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores on September 11, 2001 and have continually threatened to do so since?

Were people from all over the world, not brutally murdered that day, in downtown Manhattan, across the Potomac from the capitol of the USA and in a field in Pennsylvania ?

Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning or crushing death that day, or didn't they?

And I'm supposed to care that a few Taliban were claiming to be tortured by a justice system of a nation they are fighting against in a brutal insurgency.

I'll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents for incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11.

I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East, start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere belief of which, is a crime punishable by beheading in Afghanistan ..

I'll care when these thugs tell the world they are sorry for hacking off Nick Berg's head, while Berg screamed through his gurgling slashed throat.

I'll care when the cowardly so-called 'insurgents' in Afghanistan, come out and fight like men, instead of disrespecting their own religion by hiding in mosques and behind women and children.

I'll care when the mindless zealots who blow themselves up in search of nirvana, care about the innocent children within range of their suicide bombs.

I'll care when the Canadian media stops pretending that their freedom of speech on stories, is more important than the lives of the soldiers on the ground or their families waiting at home, to hear about them when something happens.
In the meantime, when I hear a story about a CANADIAN soldier roughing up an Insurgent terrorist to obtain information, know this:

I don't care.

When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not to move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take it to the bank:

I don't care.

When I hear that a prisoner, who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and fed 'special' food, that is paid for by my tax dollars, is complaining that his holy book is being 'mishandled,' you can absolutely believe, in your heart of hearts:

I don't care.

And oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes it's spelled 'Koran' and other times 'Quran.' Well, Jimmy Crack Corn you guessed it,

I don't care!!

If you agree with this viewpoint, pass this on to all your E-mail friends. Sooner or later, it'll get to the people responsible for this ridiculous behavior!

If you don't agree, then by all means hit the delete button. Should you choose the latter, then please don't complain when more atrocities committed by radical Muslims happen here in our great Country! And may I add:

'Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering, if during their life on earth, they made a difference in the world. But, the Soldiers don't have that problem.'

I have another quote that I would like to share AND.......I hope you forward all this.
One last thought for the day:

Only five defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
1. Jesus Christ
2. The British Soldier.
3. The Canadian Soldier.
4. The US Soldier, and
5. The Australian Soldier

One died for your soul, the other four, for your freedom.

AMEN!

"NO WAY!"

Is he totally oblivious to what is going on around him?
All I can say, that is one dedicated worker (and there is not very
many like him out there any more. Either that or he is totally STUPID!

Straight Talk....

Let me get this straight . . . .


We're going to be "gifted" with a health care plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don't, Which purportedly covers at least ten million more people, without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents, written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that didn't read it but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a President who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, for which we'll be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect, by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that's broke!!!!!

'What the hell could possibly go wrong!'

Whose Country Is This?

This should be posted in every SCHOOL and every COURTHOUSE in AMERICA!



(only 31 words)
Isn't life strange? I never met one Veteran who enlisted to fight for Socialism.



I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG, OF THE UNITED STATES
OF AMERICA, AND TO THE REPUBLIC FOR WHICH IT STANDS,
ONE NATION UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY AND
JUSTICE FOR ALL!


If Muslims can pray on Madison Avenue, why are Christians banned from praying
in public and erecting religious displays on their holy days? Tell me again, whose
country is this? Ours or the Muslims?

It’s estimated that more than 75% of Americans believe in God.
Therefore, I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a problem in
having 'In God! We Trust' on our money and having 'God' in the Pledge of Allegiance.
I believe it's time we stand up for what we believe.

I am not trying to be discriminatory about any religions or other peoples! I am however saying,
THIS IS OUR COUNTRY, THIS IS HOW IT WAS STARTED HERE IN AMERICA!
IT WAS STARTED WITH AND ON THE PRINCIPLES OF "GOD" AND THE "BIBLE"
our Bible that has come down through the eons, written by the disciples of Jesus...OUR GOD!
We are not trying to take other people's religion away from them..."WHY ARE THEY, WHY
DO THEY WANT TO TAKE OURS AWAY FROM US?"

Cherokee Nation Tribal Court

Tribal ruling raises dispute over slaves owned by Indians

OKLAHOMA CITY

OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) - A tribal court ruling that the Cherokee Nation must allow descendants of former slaves owned by Indians to be tribal members, has again raised the painful history of the forcible removal of the Indians to Oklahoma in the nineteenth century.


A Cherokee Nation tribal court ruled on Friday that the nation cannot exclude the so-called "Freedmen" from tribal membership even though some of them are not blood descendants of the Indians.

The issue arises because when the U.S. government forced Indian tribes to walk from the Southeast U.S. to Oklahoma in 1831, in what the Indians described as the "Trail of Tears", some of them brought their African-American slaves with them.
They brought them because the Cherokee owned plantations in the U.S. South. When the tribe was ejected from the land they were allowed to take their possessions with them, including the slaves.


After the Civil War, those slaves were freed and an 1866 treaty with the U.S. required the Cherokee to admit to the tribe the slaves and their descendants, some with Cherokee blood because plantation owners had fathered children with slave women, and some with no Indian blood.

In 2007, the Cherokee tribe voted for a tribal constitutional amendment that revoked the membership of the slave descendants who could not prove Cherokee blood. This stripped more than 2,800 Freedmen descendants of tribal membership, most of them African-Americans. Friday's ruling invalidates the Amendment.

The case is being heard separately in a U.S. Federal court.
"We have received the (tribal court) decision with which we respectfully disagree," said Diane Hammons, Attorney General for the Cherokee Nation. She said the tribe might appeal.
Marilyn Vann, a member of the Cherokee Freedmen and president of the organization that represents descendants of the former slaves, said the Friday decision was a step in the right direction but action in U.S. Federal court was more important.

"This shows that some in the Cherokee Nation want to rule by law instead of inciting base interest for their own political gain," Vann said.
Vann said some in the Cherokee tribe did not want to allow the descendants of slaves to vote on issues such as distributing the millions of dollars of tribal income from gambling casinos.
"It's about control of the money," Vann said. "They have casinos and hundreds of millions of dollars they don't have to pay taxes on. They don't want to have to account for what they spend that money on

The Court Systems.....WHAT A TOTAL JOKE!!!!!!

It is not hard to be disillusioned, frustrated, bitter, fist fighting mad, or to go postal with this our SO CALLED JUSTICE SYSTEM we have here in America!



This satanism of a so called government that the United States of America has now (especially) and has been headed this way for several years needs to be TOTALLY REDONE FROM START TO FINISH! It seriously needs to be thrown out with the TRASH IT IS and RECONFIRMED!


It is not hard to see or understand why people are going postal as it is put any more!


Just look around you and in every place one looks and listens it isn't hard to see all of the injustice that is done! All of the bribing and paying off of the officials whether thy are federal, state or even county wide that is done.

OH YES, LET US NOT FORGET OUR GOOD OLE' BOY LAWYERS!!!!!!!!!!

New Year barely started and already........

It seems like with the new year comes new problems...every time when you thinkyou might be getting ahead, WHOOP something happens to show you that you are not in as much control of things as you thought you were!
It is 1:02 a.m. and here I am trying to play catch up with some of the things I need to get done for work, but instead I have gotten frustrated and decided to check on my blogs and see if I had a little time to work on at at least one if not all three. Which I can most definitely say at this point I will not be able to get to the third one tonight. Which is alright, because it is one I have just started and it is about some of the things I make... so no big hurry on that one as I feel there is on this one and especially my first one that is also tied into my business and web site.

This month already has taken a toll on me and it's only half over. My mother is having problems again with her health and it is so hard to tell what is connected with the dementia and blood pressure and what else might be starting to develop with her.


And of course we can't forget my dad who thinks he doesn't have to do what the doctors tell him he needs to or should, he of course knows better! Dad has been having more problems over the last oh, eight weeks now and nothing is going right for him...WONDER WHY DAD! I am so tired of having to fight him to go to the doctor when he has a problem! He can come up with more excuses than carter has liver pills, or than a high school kid not wanting to do their homework! And he 83 yrs. old, I feel like I am back in the time when my kids were in high school and having the same conversations except for them it was about school and with him it's about the doctors and what he is not suppose to be doing!

I am here to tell you it doesn't get any better or easier either. The saying from child to parent, to grandparent, back to child is so true...being our parents' parent is so hard to do, but that is what I am having to do just like millions of others in my position are doing and having to do. Being a parent to your own child is one thing but being a parent to your own parent is something entirely different.


One thing I do know for sure that will help get you through is having faith...faith in GOD! I know for a fact that I would not have been able to come this far or last this long if it were not for having FAITH and knowing even when I get in a hurry or do not have the patience I need that God is there for me, I know sometimes it's like I forget he is but I really don't. I just think I can get things done faster if I go ahead and do it then I really mess things up, and He gives me a reminder, sometimes it's gentle and then sometimes it's not!


At any rate after almost two years of this with both my parents and being WORN OUT and BURNED OUT, it is really starting to get to me. I was sick for almost two weeks and ended up in the E R myself and knowing what caused most of my problems, it is not gonna go away just like that! The doctor says there is to much stress in your life...."DA, YA THINK!" But you gotta do what you have to do and that does include PRAYING A LOT FOR HELP, GUIDANCE, PATIENCE and what ever else you need to get through.

So to all of the others out there in my same position, my hat is off to you, I do hope you have some kind of help even if it's just a little bit, ( I have kids and they try to help me when they can but it's hard on them also because they have families and jobs that make it difficult at times for them, but I am blessed with me kids because they will help me when they can).Some may not have kids to help them ask your friends or your parents friends,( the ones that still are able too) are check into some of the churches and other agencies around where you live to get some type of help. It is just to hard to do by yourself, I am finding that out and as I have already said it does not get any easier!


I do pray that this year brings to each of you a bright, happy, fruitful and blessed new year!

A New Year is here...ready or not!

Today is Jan. 2nd, 2011 can you believe it? I don't know if I can or not in some ways.
But at any rate it is here so it really doesn't matter when it comes right down to it, does it?
I left work thursday at 4:30 p.m. and ran errors, went to see my mother at the nursing
home and she was in one of those moods...where she gets so mad at me for any reason,
no reason, what ever reason and starts to hit, bite, kick what ever she can do at me to me,
curses me and of course everything is my fault! So I helped the nurse give her the meds.
It was time for and then I left. I am learning it's ok for me to leave when my mother does
her acting out/up or what ever it is called. I do have to admit about half of the time she doesn't
know what she's doing because of the dementia she has, but then there are other times
that she does know exactly what she is doing and she does take full advantage of it! She use
to with me, but I realized what was going on and not the biggest part of the time, she does it with
my dad, because he still believes she really doesn't know what she doing at any time! Even the
nurses have told him she does here and there like I have. But he doesn't want to believe it I think!
( I call it having a moment) when she knows what she's doing, because she is in the moment and
knows what is going on and even if she still can't talk very good...believe me you do get the jest
of what she is staying or trying to say!

It is hard to believe in one way that in March it will be 2 yrs. since mother had her heart attack
and double stroke. It has been a very long 2 yrs. and I know it isn't going to get any better, infact
it is getting worse and I have to wonder and question about her quality of life, by that I mean there are thousands of other people in the world that is going through the same thing my mother is and the what
kind or type of quality of life do they have? It actually has to be like my mother's and that is really NONE! How can anyone call this any kind of a life these people are going through? They don't know or understand for the most part, so how are they to learn anything from this or get right with their maker/creator if they can't think straight or at all? They can't find the words to be able to talk when they are able to speak...they search for words they know they are suppose to know but honestly haven't a clue what, why, when, where! These people do not have any quality of life and this is very sad to me, I can't help my mother, except for washing her clothes, making sure she does not want for anything, (which most of the time she doesn't know anyway if she does or not)! To make sure she is taken care of at the nursing home...(and believe me most of the time when it comes to my mother these people need a metal taking care of her, because she is totally something)!

"I am learning I can only do what I can do, and I am not SUPER WOMAN!"


I had a four day wk-end and that was so great, I was going to get so much done but as usual I didn’t get hardly anything done. My dad hurt himself and so I have been taking care of him all wk-end and trying to get him to go to the ER but no he wants to be stubborn about everything, so I finally gave up and said what
ever you want to do just let me know.


I have been doing some soul searching and trying to figure out how much of me I need to change (for the better) and how much of me is more or less ok, I don't need to change so much but work on more. I do know what my faults are and I try to work on them every day, but honestly I don't make it like I would like to, but I do try and I do work on them, they are always in my thoughts. I do want to be a better person and to be a good example for my kids and grandkids! I have stopped trying to work so hard to prove to my dad that I am the kind of person he thinks or wants me to be or should be...I know after years of trying so hard I will never make it and I have finally adjusted to that fact and have came to peace with it! I have come to peace also about my mother and I have never been the child she wanted either! In their hearts there is only my brother and that is fine because I know the good Lord knows and my kids know and I don't have to worry about any one else!

So this year should prove to be a better year at least for me in the fact that I am the care taker of both my parents and I am truly doing the very best that I can in every way I can...I don't have to wonder,
worry or stress out so much any more because I can only do what I can do, the rest is in God's hand!
