OMG - I LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Wonder how much money the country would save by getting rid of our leaders' ridiculously high salaries????  That would probably solve the problem right there!!  

Even just cutting them by 50% and bringing them back down to what most of us little people live on would help tremendously!!  Cut their benefits.  Cut their retirement.  Cut their perks.  That's what private companies do when they're in financial crisis.  Why should the government be any different??

If you spend almost twice what you make - you're NEVER going to get out of debt.  Continuing to incur more debt is NOT going to make you any money - it's only going to dig you deeper in the hole.  This is VERY BASIC economics here.  Come on, people.  SERIOUSLY?!?
 
Debt Ceiling Clarified!

On another post, someone suggested only paying them when they're back at home, and not in session.

For all the people who were recently added to my world.  WELCOME!!  PLEASE take the time to read about me and what my expectations are and how I intend to interact on G+.  Respect me and I will respect you.  Simple stuff! ;)

For those who wish to be added - comment on one of my posts or post something to me.  Show some sort of interaction attempt and it will increase your odds of being added.  I'm not one to just randomly add people on a whim.  I tend to keep my circles small and only hang on to those who interact with me regularly.

If you've got a minute, scroll through my posts. They go back aways, even with my pruning.

I almost NEVER post publicly, but I've had enough today that I feel this should be a public post....................

What is wrong with people these days??? I have had TWO friends thrown under the bus on public posts regarding private issues this week. One of them - I was even tagged in and ended up being attacked for not jumping on the bandwagon shooting flaming arrows at the supposed 'offender'.

In both cases - only one side of the story was put out there - stating that the other party was free to have input if they wished to tell their side of the story. When the other person declined to participate - it was assumed they were guilty and the bashing continued to the point where I muted the post. SERIOUSLY????

What exactly makes anyone think that it's appropriate to behave this way online?? If you have issues with someone - TALK TO THEM PRIVATELY!! Don't go on some one sided rant on a public post making the other person look bad. It's so incredibly juvenile to behave in this way!! It's hurtful and can be quite humiliating to everyone involved. Plus - it only makes you look like a whining, sniveling, insecure baby who can't handle adult relationships in the adult world. This is NOT high school, people!!

I'm not talking about the need to vent frustrations. I do that all the time. I have a SERIOUS case of rage toward my husband's ex-wife and her constant need to have her hands in his wallet!! That's different.

I'm talking about the personal attacks and needless drama. Are you people so insecure that you need the virtual world to be 'on your side' against the supposed 'offending party'?? Seriously. STOP IT!!!

TALK TO EACH OTHER PRIVATELY rather than involving the internet in your relationships!!

This is a perfect example of someone I would never add to my circles - nor would anyone I know. No profile pic. No profile info. Nothing is offered to make me want to interact with this person.

If you think EITHER party gives a rat's ass about you - you are downright DELUSIONAL!!  This shutdown is being played up to be the fault of the right wing - when in reality - it's the left wing who is playing dirty hard ball shutting down things that have no business being shut down.  

Evicting people from their homes in Lake Meade, NV because they are on government land - even though their land leases are current - why -  just to prove a point?!?  Are you fucking kidding me?!?  Tell me how these people are costing the government ANY money and how exactly it is saving money to evict them from  their homes!!  Someone has to be paid to serve those notices - then someone else has to be paid to stand guard to make sure they don't return to their homes after being evicted!  Come on, now.  That is underhanded and nothing more than a bullying tactic.  

And yes, yes, yes - this asinine Affordable Health Care Act DOES indeed guarantee coverage for people - HOWEVER - using the word 'affordable' is a fucking joke!!  Yeah - you can get coverage - but there is NOTHING in the fine print that says the insurance provider has to offer it 'affordably'.  We are fortunate enough to have health insurance through +Ken Parent 's work - but we shall see how long that lasts.  I dread the possibility of having to shop for health insurance.  We likely wouldn't be able to afford it on our own.  UGH!!

And giving the IRS control of enforcing the requirement that everyone purchase health insurance???  Guess what??  You'd better be hoarding cash in your mattresses if you think you can afford the penalties or that the IRS will work with you!!  They'll raid your bank account, seize your assets, and revoke your driver's license before they let you get away with not paying!!  The IRS has seemingly unlimited power and ability to cripple the little people!!

I could rant for days about the STUPIDITY of the government shutdown - but don't think for a MOMENT that EITHER PARTY cares about us as individuals!!  All they care about is their party agendas and what special interest group is in their back pockets!!  WAKE UP, PEOPLE!!!  We are all mere pawns in an elaborate chess game!!

My ONE and ONLY post for 9/11. I've been avoiding most of my social media today because the memories, events, and photos of this day upset me SO much. It's still just a little to real for me. Somehow - this song gives me a sense of empowerment in the midst of a sea of helplessness. We are NOT a weak people. We are AMERICANS!!

Story
Introduction
I'm from Baton Rouge, Louisiana - raised on a farm - transplanted all over the place with my family.  We are currently in Arizona - hopefully never moving again!  The desert is heaven on earth!!

I'm a southern redhead with a temper and attitude that goes along with that.  I have a southern accent that comes and goes at will - depending on what situation I'm trying to get into or out of!!  It's amazing what a pretty smile and well spoken genuine southern accent can accomplish!!!

The temper I have can totally get me in trouble sometimes though!  There's a funny story about a New Mexico DOTD officer I had a 'run in' with during one of our trucking trips through there!!  Well - it's funny now - but definitely was NOT at the time!  ;-)

I can cook - really well.  My family eats well when 'momma's' in the house! 

I'm a HUGE college football fan - specifically following the LSU Tigers. I'm one of those girls who will scream at the tv as if they can actually hear me!

Of course - being from south Louisiana - I'm sort of defaulted into being a New Orleans Saints fan - though I was always a Saints fan even before it was popular to be one!!  This causes 'issues' in my house - as my other half is a devout Chicago Bears fan!  

I am completely, 100%, entirely, without a doubt in love with Ken Parent!!  He is my world.  He keeps me safe and protected.  He allows and encourages me to branch out and test my limits both personally - and when I was working outside the home - professionally. He keeps me grounded while at the same time pushing me to fly.  He will occasionally step in to my posts - which I very much appreciate.  

I love my life with my man and my daughters.  It's been a long tiresome road to get where we are today - but we're finally here!!!

PLEASE NOTE:  I am NOT here looking for anything other than interaction with other interesting people.  I am NOT available for anything more than that. If you begin posting inappropriate comments or unsolicited flirtations - I will not respond and may possibly block you.  

I'm as open and honest as anyone can be - but I won't tolerate being consistently hit on. It gets OLD!! 

I've got a loyal following and have met a lot of people I consider friends.  There's a big difference between friendly interaction and crossing the line.  Everyone should know that. Respect me and I will respect you in return.

I post a lot of my own personal thoughts, struggles, triumphs, etc. - as well as sharing from streams of friends.  I have STRONG opinions on a LOT of issues - but am smart enough to always be open to the insight of others. Sometimes I'm the quiet observer - sometimes I jump right in and let the world know my opinions. 

I never judge - EVER. I've been judged my whole life - and KNOW what that feels like!

I'm a friend for life with those I consider to be my friends. 

These are the basics in what you get with me! ;-)
