Seattle’s Women’s March Shows Hope!

I took a little walk on Saturday afternoon and felt a glimmer of hope.

Saturday, January 21, 2017, a Winter Day that make us living in the Pacific Northwest want to get outside.  The sun was shining and the temperature was perfect.  The buildings in the City of Seattle were glistening.Continue reading

I Just Want To Be Clear, Donald Trump

I just want to be clear about a few things on this “historic” day. I want to be clear that I didn’t vote for him. I do not approve of his rhetoric, his racism, his misogyny, his sexism, or his blatant hatred.

I want to be clear that I do not approve of his dirty tactics and his complete disregard for the “little people.” Nor do I approve of his complete lies and empty promises. By this, I mean the following:Continue reading

I’m Just Not Sure? Inauguration Thoughts; Farewell President & Mrs. Obama

7:59 am Pacific Standard Time, January 20, 2017.

I woke up about 5:30 am this morning thinking I would get some things done while it was still quiet.  An article or two have been on my mind lately and I wanted to get a few more resumes submitted today.

Turning on the television to watch the “pre” Inaugural events, which was not on my morning “To Do” list.Continue reading

An Open Letter to Donald Trump

Dear Mr. Trump,

I write this knowing that there is a 99.6% chance you will never read this. Not because you’re too busy to pay attention to someone with minimal exposure, but because your arrogance prevents you from caring. With that being said, the .4% chance that you will actually read this makes it worth my time to write this. You see, I’m busy too. I’m busy working my full time job that keeps me busy 50 hours a week to provide for mine and my husband’s two sets of twins. We’re a middle class family that works hard, makes a minimal fraction of the money you make and likely pay more in taxes than you do.

The exposure of you not paying federal taxes is the least of your concern, sadly. Above is a small compilation of headlines from the last few week concerning you. There are some not as bad and there are some that are worse, much much worse. The sources of these headlines? They don’t really matter, Google Donald Trump and you will get many variations that all tell the same story- you have no business running for President.Continue reading

American Horror Story: Freak Show Returns

The hit TV anthology series has recently aired two all-new episodes of the Freak Show storyline and no one even notices. The storyline was believed to have ended two years ago but we were shocked to see these two new episodes. In these two special episodes, it features the scary clown that haunts our nightmares and the two-headed lady that can’t seem to keep her story straight.Continue reading

The White Helmets Were Worthy Recipients Of The Nobel Peace Prize

A group of volunteers called the ‘White Helmets’ who risk their own lives to rush into newly bombed areas in Syria to save as many people as they can were candidates in the running for the Nobel Peace Prize 2016. They lost out to the Colombian President who took the prize but their nomination has raised their profile to demonstrate that human kindness prevails even among the ravages of bombs dropped by hostile countries.Continue reading

The American Dream: A Crucial Factor In The Presidential Elections

It remains a mystery to progressives like me and millions of others globally on why Donald Trump is still maintaining a respectable share of the polls ahead of the Presidential elections in November. His opponent, the formidable Hilary Clinton, turned in a super impressive showing at the first Presidential televised debate and has gained a 5 point lead over Trump but this still puts him at 42% according to a CNN poll. Is Trump really the American Dream?Continue reading

Doctor of a Different Kind: Have Some Compassion

With the heart-breaking and disastrous events that have taken place over the last few years in this country, it seems that so many Americans have lost their ability for compassion. Between the race wars, the police shootings, the riots, and the gay-bashing, we seem to have forgotten how to love our fellow man. This country has slipped into such a state of emotional despair, it seems like we can’t even look at someone without thinking the worst of them right off the bat.Continue reading

Being a Hater

I’ve seen some evil people in my time. Part of being an adult is to discern the good from the evil. You have to make decisions about a person based on their behavior, and not hold it against everyone you meet. An abused child has to learn not to hate every adult, because of what one adult did to them. A raped girl has to decide that not ALL MEN are to blame for what that one evil man did to her. It is with this decision that you decide who is really Being a Hater.Continue reading

An Open Letter To Hillary Clinton

Dear Secretary Clinton,

I have to be honest, the last Democratic Primary I voted for Bernie Sanders. I struggled with the headlines accusing you of being a liar and a criminal. On top of that, Bernie Sanders’ platform was one that I could believe in. But know that I really wanted to pick you. You’ve fought for this for such a long time.

The Primary Election before I voted for Barack Obama. There has never been a President that has inspired me the way he has and continues to do.Continue reading
