Life’s Hopes and Dreams

If I were to imagine that the only use for my life would be to live and work diligently as insects do and then just die, I would say what I always thought as a child.  “What’s the point?”  When I became painfully aware of death as a young child, many times I wondered why I was doing anything.  Why any of us even bothered.

I then became aware of those that changed the world for others.  I felt strongly that this is the reason we are all here.  To make a difference for the better.  I find it very disturbing that most people are not very intelligent or wise.  That most don’t share my belief that we can all be someone else’s hero.  That many use other people for their selfish ends and proceed to lash out like a small child at the least provocation to anything or anyone that does not agree with them.  Most have absolutely no knowledge as to the miracle of life and just how precious every one of us are.

It’s really not their fault if they are not taught this in some way.  Humans only know what they learn from others.

I have suffered through a very hard and cruel life and when I was a young woman I made up my mind that I was going to write an autobiography, anonymously of course, in the hopes to help others that have shared similar fates and to warn women, especially mothers, of what not to do to their children.

Most don’t really have a clue what they are doing in life and will never realize this while they are here so there’s no problem for them at all.  Everyone I know that is content in his or her ignorance does not appear to have the ability to look beyond what they are automatically doing.  They never question any bad decision made even when confronted by others they have hurt.  Any accusation is incredulous to them.  What an odd way to live.  Socrates said “The unexamined life is not worth living” but I don’t know if I agree sometimes.  Some of the most self-deluded ignorant people are the amongst the most content that I know.  Ignorance is bliss to many but I just don’t understand how.

I believe an individual’s cloak should be removed from their sins if they are hurting others.  Jesus believed this as well.  He said this was why he was hated by many.  We should all be allowed to live as we wish as long as it doesn’t effect others adversely.  This almost never happens.  Anything we do does somehow effect others.  Even the act of hiding one’s head under the sand and committing the sin of omission.

Do You Believe in Life After Death?

Your answer is completely dependent on what you were brought up to believe and what your personal experience or experiences have been regarding those that have already passed on, including yourself.  There are many stories of people that have passed on from this world, that have been declared legally dead and were then resurrected one way or another.

Many of them swear that they experienced fantastic and wonderful things, most quite similar, but some claim to have seen the fires of hell on their way out.

I have personally experienced two separate incidences with two people that I loved right after their time of death.

I cannot prove exactly what happened or why, but it was very strange that there were two separate incidents that I am not able to explain in the natural.

I have to begin this with fact that I am not like most people.  I believe we all think this, but in my case it’s a fact.  Thankfully I have had witnesses to some of the strange things that have happened in my life including a wild bird flying out of the sky, jumping into my lap chirping away.  Finding someone’s missing hunting arrow under inches of new snow the day after hunt.  I could feel the same fear in that area as I did from the animal the night before.  It might be a Native American thing, who knows.

A couple of years ago I was putting on my face before going to work in my lighted make-up mirror as usual.  It turned off.  I immediately thought there must be a short or it just stopped working so I tried to turn it back on and it turned on, no problem.  I started putting my make-up on again only to have it shut it’s self off.  I turned it back on and again it turned off.  For some reason I was not frightened but thought it odd, like someone was playing a joke on me.  I said out loud, “Real funny joke.”  About a day later my ex-best friends daughter told me that her mom had passed away right before that.  We had been friends through school and for many years after before slowly growing apart in ideals and lifestyle.  Her daughter had been in touch with me through the later years, but not her mother,who used to be my very best friend.  We used to play pranks on each other when we were younger, she loved pranks and the private joke saying between us was “real funny joke you guys!”  My make-up mirror had never turned it’s self off before and has since done this only one time and that was right before my sister passed earlier this year.  I find the timing of this supernatural occurrence an odd coincidence.

Was this my friend trying to be funny?  Was someone beside my friend trying to contact me?  Was there a spiritual shake-up that caused this to happen because of their passing or imminent passing?  My sister was also friends with my friend.

My sister had been suffering with cancer for a number of months and the night she passed I put something down on my dresser and it slid backwards a number of inches before my eyes.  I thought I was seeing things, again not super concerned, only to find out the next morning that she had passed during the night.  Then I was not so sure I imagined it.  I’ve never imagined something like that before.

Was she trying to contact before going home?  Was someone else trying to tell me something or did I spiritually know something was amiss that caused it?  I guess I’ll find out one day.  We all will.

Is Racism Alive And Well in The White House Secret Service?

Just thought I would put that out there.

It appears the President’s Secret Service is either very incompetent at their jobs or they are deliberately allowing possible assassins in the White House in the hopes of getting the President and the first family killed.

When I heard the thing about the prostitutes a couple of years back I thought they were just being disrespectful of the President as well as derelict in their duties but now, with what’s come out about someone putting bullets into the White House and only someone from the cleaning staff notices this, someone actually making it into the White House with a weapon and a man getting onto an elevator with a weapon when the President was riding it pushes this beyond just ordinary incompetency and into the realms of treachery.

I ask myself how anyone this bad at a job could first get the job and then keep it, even if everyone around you were just as incompetent.  Are they grudge holding republicans?  Perhaps some of the many haters of Obamacare or another one of his unpopular executive decisions?  Or can it be that they hate the idea of a black man in the White house.  Some things are hard to prove and actually knowing another man’s heart is almost impossible.  This being said people’s actions, or lack thereof, do speak louder than words.

Stupidity & Evil Hand in Hand

I wrote the following comment on Just Writing!

We are all animals living on this earth. Man is supposed to become civilized or no one is safe. For this simple reason I believe Christ was born. Love God and love one another. Period.

Not a hard concept and since man is very stupid as a whole and selfish by nature, they need to be taught this or they would just revert to their natural Neanderthal tendencies. I believe that stupidity and evil go hand in hand for you really can’t have one without the other. You are stupid to be evil, period and stupid people tend to do or cause such horrific things in this world. We already know the evil that some can do simply because a judge or someone pretending to be a religious leader says it’s a good thing to do. The spiritually blind or ignorant will follow. I do believe most are just stupid but evil does exist.

Why Evil Can Never Win

When you stand back and really look at the big picture, evil can never win.

God made all of his creations with something inside that simply cannot allow for this to happen.

There is no race or nationality on earth that when pushed too far, will not push back.

The earth was created that if it is changed or pushed too far, it will get rid of the pests in much the same way.

The reason that evil will never win is that everyone is created wanting to be loved and as much as this need is perverted in some who wish to be worshipped, there is no one with ears to hear that cannot recognize good, right and fair.  Some pretend not to hear or see as long as it benefits them, but everyone knows that up is above and down is below.  All rational people know when enough is enough and this is good.  It makes them fight back even if you are the most fair and good person, if the other person does not give you a choice in the matter, you have to do what you have to do.  It’s that survival instinct that God put in all living creatures.

This is what frees the slaves.

It stops people from getting carried away with whatever power they seem to think they possess for the moment.

It stops those with mal intent from completely taking over the world.

God’s people were told to be His hands and feet during their brief interlude on this earth.  You must do more than sit and pray.  Sometimes you must act and act in a manner that you might not want to.  When push comes to shove are you willing to be someone’s hero?  Are you willing to be a warrior for God!

“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality.  This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.”  Martin Luther King Jr.

Civilizations Need to be Civilized

The only way humans become civilized is the same we have domesticated our pets.  We all need proper training.  Much like bad pets sorely in need of obedience training, many people are completely lacking in important manners and social skills that will enable them to survive in the world.  That may even save some of their lives!

Through many years of learning the hard way I’m sure, man has learned what is appropriate and not acceptable by their fellow planet dwellers.  During the swinging 60’s the media became the mouthpiece for selfish clowns that declared “God is dead” and “if it feels good, do it!”  The fact that these flakes were either higher than kites or just rebelling against their years of strict parenting meant nothing to most people because as long as attractive people that dress nicely and speak in well modulated voices say something, they believe it.

Parents loved hearing that little Johnny no longer needed to be disciplined because it might cramp his style or hurt his psyche.  Heaven forbid he hear the word no and be scarred for life!  Who wouldn’t want to believe the clones on TV?  Makes your life easier, you don’t have to care what your children are doing or fight with them anymore.  Who cares if they burn down the house or start killing others when they get a little older?

We all should!

We are all animals and for any animal to get along with others and survive, certain skills must be learned.  The most important of which used to be taught in the home with other siblings or when starting school and that is sharing.  Because only children are more common now, the sharing part is a little trickier than with those that have had to share mom’s love or a room with someone growing up.  The fact remains, conscientious parents do care what their children’s future will be and intelligent ones realize just how important social skills are.

Sadly, the very people that need to learn these skills are usually the last ones that do.  This makes life unpleasant to downright dangerous for everyone.  Neglected children are some of the most angry and disturbed and for the fact that they are “neglected” it means that no one is teaching them anything that will help them in their struggles to fit into an already cruel world.  It’s much easier on a child to fit into a crazy, evil world if they’ve known security and love since birth.  Those that do not feel wanted or loved will treat everyone that slights them later with severe anger because it stirs up the wounds they carry from their painful childhood.  That’s why some can handle a job with a crazy boss much better than others.  No baggage regarding crazy, so they don’t take the abuse or slights personally.

Manners are so important to getting along with others and being liked, but if someone already knows there is not love for them in the world, they have given up on trying to please or placate others.  To them it’s more of an unrealistic expectation to think that others that don’t even like them should expect a smile or kind word from them.  It’s fake to them and it is, make no mistake.

Manners are very fake, but very necessary to making others feel important and showing that you do care.  As artificial as saying please and thank you are, they make others feel as if you are acknowledging them as someone worth respecting.  Neglect is not respect.  Abuse is not fun, but neglect is like saying “you are dead to me” and that’s actually worse.

The more people are neglected, the further they disconnect from the feelings of others, genuinely.  Then when a tragedy occurs many that were raised with somewhat normal parents will ask “why?”  This is why!  These are the people that have no idea what compassion is and never even learned to how fake it.  They are beyond trying to “impress” others and have given up trying, they cannot relate to others.  Then if someone gets on their last twisted nerve, it doesn’t end well.

Mothers, love your children and teach them well while you still can!

Don’t Mess With The IRS

Shortly after leaving the Internal Revenue Service I sat down and wrote a book to help all taxpayers based on what I experienced in their collection area.  After actually being in the belly of the beast, the very heart of what the IRS exists for, I saw that they were really not as bad as people tried to make out.

In the past I had a couple of issues with them myself because I did not claim some early retirement withdrawal in which tax was withheld before I received it and I genuinely thought I didn’t have to declare it because they had to have already known about it.  Oh how innocent I was!  Another time I didn’t realize there was something called EIC that I qualified for because of a drop in my income.  I’m sure many people don’t know any better when they are about to file.  In fact most IRS issues are genuine failure to follow through because you think you are not liable to do something from filing to reporting things.  The IRS will give you the benefit of the doubt if this is your first time making the mistake.  One time I owed tax the other instance, they gave me a refund because of a credit I didn’t know I had coming.

Most of the time I handled the incoming calls from those that had levies and liens issued against them.  That is the area that also issues these collection actions.  The taxpayers are sent several notices before their cases are transferred to the Automated Collection System for further collection action.  They will try to call you and send you additional notices depending how many were previously sent.  If you don’t call within the time frame given, they will issue liens on any property you may have and levy bank accounts or your wages.  You have to respond even if you cannot pay or don’t plan to file.  It will go much better for you and the representatives will go over many options to resolve any issues you have that you probably are not even aware of.  They will actually be able to stop or prevent collection against you regardless of what you owe if you are currently in a hardship status.

My book was to let people know the easiest and best ways to resolve their individual tax problems without the added expense of a third-party.  It is very easy to deal with the IRS.  There are not ways they will trick you or any other such nonsense.  Make no mistake they will want you to “full pay today” as they are required to ask you, but as long as you tell them what you are able to do, they will work with you.  Many so-called tax resolution experts are not who they say they are and most are either fraudulent, deceiving or incompetent at best.  In the years I was there, we literally talked to thousands of people that were defrauded by just such people by thousands of dollars they could have used to pay towards their tax liabilities or used towards an Offer-in-Compromise if qualified.  Many POA’s simply never bothered to even contact the IRS on behalf of the client that they just filled out the 2848 form with.  This form states for the taxpayer not to call themselves and for this fact, they know you won’t know that they haven’t called yet until you end up with collection action on you.  Then good luck finding some of them that actually disconnect their phones and skip town.

Notice how the tax resolution commercials all seem to say to contact them if you owe over $10,000.  That’s ridiculous!  Any legitimate expert will take your case regardless if you owe anything and work out a reasonable fee with you.  These companies hope that the more you owe, the more you won’t mind paying the $2,000 or more in fees in the hopes they will be able to offer pennies on the dollar, which almost never happens.  Yes there may be legitimate tax accountants and attorneys, there has to be, but don’t just go with anyone.  Make sure who you are dealing with before you make any business deals or sign anything.  Be sure they are referred by someone you trust and respect.  There were many that were taken advantage of by relatives or relatives of friends of theirs so just because you know them does not guarantee anything.

Thank You Peter Schorsch!

Man’s stupidity usually knows no bounds unless someone with good sense reigns it in.

I love people like Peter Schorsch.  The ones that will not bow to the current nonsensical actions of those around him and actually dare to try to bring a stop to it.

God only knows what kind of mess this would cause if the “pay it forward” insanity did not come to an end when it did.  If it wasn’t him that stopped it, it would have been someone like me.

I can only imagine someone like myself who never frequents any coffee shops, especially large corporate owned ones with bizarre, occult looking symbols on them, stopping in one day with just a few bucks in their pocket, only to find out that they would be paying for the next customer that was there picking up Crappuccino’s for the entire office.

I don’t think so.

So many sheep went along with this stupidity until the 458th customer that could have afforded to pay and chose not to, stopped it.  Apparently they do this all over.

It does prove to me that even when I had a job, this place was too pretentious for me.  It shows that most, if not all, of the people who stop here can easily afford it otherwise it would have crossed their minds just why this is not a good idea and shouldn’t be continued.

This kind of nonsense discriminates against the poor and is not fair to anyone involved.  It’s fake “paying it forward.”  No one here is in need so they are making a mockery of why this movement ever started.

This man is touted as a liberal blogger but this was a very rational, conservative thing to do so thanks  again!

What I Know is Wrong With America

Hard to know where to begin, but here goes:

There appears to be a deliberate hostility towards the working class.  The very poor, those that can’t or won’t help themselves seem to have many options available to help them, monetarily, healthcare, food, etc.  It’s the ones that wish to be independent but were not born into a good environment by either being born to alcoholic ragers, crack whores or just some average Joe with a little below average wits and intellect.  If your parents didn’t do very well because of impulsivity, bad judgment, substance abuse or just plain bad luck with an attitude to match, chances are you will go that same route.  There is a lot of hoopla that you can be anything you set your mind to and that’s simply not true, as many have found out.

This is hard enough to face without our own government being allowed to turn against us as well by encouraging businesses to employ people overseas just to save a couple bucks, meanwhile with fewer jobs available, there will be people that will end up in shelters, jails or graveyards cause most won’t live out on the street.  Unemployment does not last forever and the people in our government act like people are rude or out of line to even ask for it, even though it’s their faults that these citizens don’t have their jobs to begin with not to mention that fact that they make all wage employees pay into that system!  No one deserves this kind of treatment from their government.  While our country tries to build up false or exaggerated charges against other countries so they have the excuse to go to war with them, they are actually guilty of much the same or worse to us.  What country would come to the American citizens aid if needed?  I can’t picture this scenario.

Our politicians have allowed some of our jobs to disappear because they are no longer for the citizens of their own country, but for their “One World Order.”  People used to hear this very Sci-Fi term but it’s now in effect.  It’s not something they are going to make real noticeable at first, and most don’t realize how bad it’s become already.  They won’t realize it til they are one of the unemployed or asked to take cuts so the rich can stay that way.  “One World Order” is what you are seeing when foreign companies are allowed to bid for a job in America against the American citizens that work and live here.  Contract job bidding has been around for a while and not a fair way to do business because it forces Independent Contractors to work for less than deserved simply so they get the job over another company.  Jobs should be given because of the skill and quality of the work done, not how cheap they will work.  That not being bad enough, and with so many that have lost jobs, our government has now decided that people that have come to this country illegally, should be allowed to stay and their children should be given an education to boot!  What the f’?!

Some have commented that the Democrats in charge of the White House at this time are doing this deliberately because they know the poor and illegal will become Democrats and they are trying to get the extra votes.  I do know there would have to be some kind method to their madness or this wouldn’t be happening.

The Republicans have been actively trying to eradicate all unions.  I am pro-union because I have seen the good they have done in the past.  Many that are anti-union say they don’t like the control they have over the employees, politically and such and that they are useless drains on the working man’s paychecks with the union dues collected.  I do know that many union leaders earn a tremendous amount of money that proves they don’t have the employees best interest at heart either.

The bought and paid for liberal media is really wrong and very manipulative.  There is proof of bias in reporting as well as totally leaving out important news and facts about the stories they do report.

I’m also very curious why the couldn’t save the life of journalists that are doing much-needed reporting in our war zones, yet our President chose to release a number of dangerous terrorists for the life of one deserter.  What’s up with that?
