Your Political Legacy

believe that there must be – in each state a leader, an appointed official, a Governor or Representative – that the members of said state recalls as a “big mistake” – due to distrust of current leaders or recent or past economic/legislative undermining.Trump

Please do not make the same mistake with Donald Trump. He is not anti-establishment, he is not anti-government.  He is anti-American Humanity.  This would be like handing the country over to Castro or Mussolini.  Who he is against will perish or go to war within the country and community.  Who he is for economically will gain.  Our military will turn into a gorilla mechanism – with no leader of experience – the humane military will leave the service and when war ensues the draft will be put back into place.

With no social or diplomatic skills, our allies will turn their backs on America.

The horror of this possibility unravels my sense of any security or faith in the America that I love.  How can the land of greatest opportunity and liberty blithely hand over our liberties to this media clown and look their children in the eyes and say
                                            “I’m voting for your future”.

I’m right…you’re wrong.

bible-thumper
I recently read the following:

(Note: Below was a post from FB.  I’m deleting the name to protect the fool that wrote it….)

“What do people who reject the God of the Bible become? In America they have become the Liberal/Left Socialists. In Russia and China they became Communists. How about those who create another God, what do they become? In the Middle East they have become Muslims who enslave, torture and behead people.The choice of who to become is so crystal clear. It really only depends on who you want to be and how you want to live. It doesn’t take any imagination at all…the evidence is all around us.”

My response is as follows:

A) The president of a Virginia Ku Klux Klan group claims that “the KKK is a faith-based Christian organization that does not condone violence.”

B) The oldest reference to Allah (“God” Islam/Muslim) – was discovered in Northern and Southern Arabia dating back to the fifth century B.C.   To state that all Muslims enslave, torture and behead is beyond radical.  Muhammad was a peaceful prophet.

C) Buddhism was founded in 624 B.C. Buddha was a peaceful prophet.

They all had their “God” and Prophets and Bibles and martyrs to the faith, long before the Christian Bible.

Also, to claim that all non-Christian bible thumpers (NOT non-Christians, mind you) are Liberals/Socialists is incorrect. However, I do think it might be a great compliment: If not for the Socialists of this country our forefathers and children would not have the Unions – which protected the middle class and poor during the industrial revolution through today. Also, the Socialist Party has no combined or recognized affiliation with Communism.

To be so pompous and self-righteous as to state that one’s beliefs are more correct than another’s beliefs is purely ignorant.  And, to attach misguided lies to support one’s superiority, or belief, is egocentric – not religious.

If I choose to believe that blue eye shadow is an abomination to me – does that mean that those who choose to wear it are wrong??

Gun Control, Political Agenda, Human and Disability Rights…….

, , , , , , , , , ,

To all of my FB, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram followers and friends:
Hereby unfriend, untweet, unpin and unchat me……if you want to sway
my opinions and convictions on:

A) Massive gun control for assault and automatic Rights
weapons – I believe that they do kill people. Period.
Also, If you spend more time defending your
weaponry than you do defending and assisting the
daily rights and options for disabled, homeless and
poor – or fighting bigotry
………….Please unfriend me.

B) Women’s rights and Planned Parenthood: I believe
that women have the right to own their reproduction.
Period. I believe that the organizations that uphold
these hard earned rights and medical services should
be supported and upheld.

C) That political agendas should be unmasked
(on all sides) and only work for the benefit of all people – not the wealthy –
but for the average working American.  I also believe that there
will never be a true democracy without socialized medicine and
uniform drug and pharmaceutical regulations.

If it is your opinion that the thought of the day is more important than a friendship or a human’s well being – if you think that your “post” will sway ethical and moral convictions that have taken 60 years to develop………..absolutely, unfriend me.  I’ll survive…. guaranteed.  

Social Relevance: What do you think? I don’t care.

In this world of blogging and Facebook and Twitter and and and…..

group

What are your pithy facts and opinions worth?  

Who reads you? Who (outside of your adoring circle of FB fans) spends more than two seconds on “liking” your post – or questioning the quality of your life – vs. the occasional RIP or blathering on over the latest “cute” kitty – dog – horse – frog pic?
(Guilty – I confess)

And what of the latest round of political b.s.?? EVERYbody has an opinion.  And… I don’t care.

What does it all amount to?  Beyond the hype, the propaganda, the game show hosts (or reality series) and Fox Media flapping does one stop and question what their candidate or political party (that you would swim the shark infested waters with) will actually do for you?

Will they call you next week for tea?  Will they contact the mortgage company when your husband has a heart attack and you can’t pay your bills – or you’ve lost your business – or you’ve lost your job??  Try to reach out to them then, your buds.  JUST TRY.

As for me…I simply want my candidates to stand up for ME – the little person.  To do what is right for me and my family.  To remember what the Great Depression was – and that a vast majority of Americans are standing smack center of a new, but not improved,
depression 85 years later.

Remembering what this country was founded on:
Life, (Education), liberty and the pursuit of happiness. 

Vote on that.  Choose to defend that.

All Women in the cross hairs….What are you willing to give up?

Senator Elizabeth Warren on Planned Parenthood

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren is a touchstone to women’s rights and middle/low income America. I stand with Planned Parenthood and every service that they provide – to every woman.

The rights that we fought for in the 70’s and 80’s are founded on sacrifice and tears. Why doesn’t the GOP propose legislation – or Angel funding – or adoption that will sponsor a mother through pregnancy and the child through college, that is if they are truly concerned with the fetus and the eventual child?

This will never happen – as it is not their concern or agenda.

I think we need to ask each and every GOP Legislator what exactly IS their agenda. I, for one, will never surrender my rights, my children’s rights or my great great grandchildren’s rights as women.

Never give up.  Never surrender!

Recognition to (dis)Abilities by the Investment World?…Well, knock me over!

Sunday evening – June 7, 2015 – Dignity by Design (my company) was notified that it had become a semi-finalist in the Minnesota Cup Competition!!

Dignity by Design


T
his may not mean so very much to those out of state or globally, but to Minnesota it means a great deal.  And to a company that has dedicated its entirety to disabilities and the independence of the disabled, veteran and elderly…..well, it is unprecedented!!

For years, decades and historically – Disabilities have eluded investors as a non-glamorous, non-high-tech, non-money-making market.  However, with the onset of disabilities hitting the runway in fashion, new technological advances in disease, war aftermath, community inclusion and software (including apps) rising to meet the needs of disabilities – it has become a viable “Social Impact” venture to investors and media worldwide.

It’s about time!

“When we’ve risen to meet the needs of our fellow man/woman – to create an environment that allows for independence, recognition of abilities and respect of worth – as a whole – regardless of ability or disAbility – then, we have truly evolved.”  Donna Freeberg

Thank you MNCup for your recognition.  It is amazing!

Logic, common sense and profitability guide this industry – not FashionThat’s secondary.

It doesn’t take genius to understand that you would rather wear a suit to a board presentation or sales meeting than Zubas®, or that you will inevitably put to the back of the closet, or donation bag, the pants that no longer “zip” or are too long/wide/tight/wrinkly.

What if you had no choice BUT the Zubas® or ill fitting, unprofessional clothing??

          That is my market. The Disabled, Veteran and Physically Challenged

Do you know 5 people? Then you intimately know my market!!
1 in 5 people in America have some form of disability that inhibits dressing in some way or another.  Not only the wheelchair users – but the elderly, the returning veterans and those with dexterity limitations.

Up Against Goliath…How’s your aim David?

slingshot

Over the past years I’ve been up against some pretty powerful odds:

Unethical employers and Unethical banking institutions.

Generally one fight alone would be enough to do in the common man (or woman in my case) and it has been a brutal fight uphill – but I’ve had the great fortune of family, friends and a powerful & influential network of trusted colleagues and resources.

The fight goes on, however – and I’m not yet sure if I will land under the heavy foot of Goliath or prevail through determination, hard work, shear will…..and an imaginary slingshot.

Howling to the Moon? (Taxing Big Business)

Walmart2

      Agreed — but so did Target and Sears and most big retailers. Government must demand more in taxing large corporations, closing loopholes and requiring more in social and family responsibility from ALL retailers – not to mention many of the so called “non-profits” that make millions on the disadvantaged.

We must also look at all of the major corporations and medical product suppliers who continually pay their assembly workers and support staff $10-12 hour. Who is going after them? Banks were bailed out of the giant mess that they created in the mid 2000’s and yet they remain immovable in sharing relief to a desperate economy.

I see Walmart as the scapegoat for the bigger picture. Yes, they should be included into the solution most definitely, but they are no worse, nor better, than thousands of corporations – and our Government is giving them carte blanche.

Howling to the moon? Probably.

SERIOUSLY WORLD: IF YOU HAD THE CURE FOR A LIFE THREATENING DISEASE, DEATH, BLINDNESS, MAJOR WEIGHT LOSS, SAGGING SKIN, HAIR LOSS….whatever…. Wouldn’t you plaster that news top and center of your very first paragraph????

And if this supplier HAS THE CURE for suffering in his/her greasy little hand…don’t you find it inhumane and cruel to keep it from the masses until it’s become the next New York Times Bestseller, or “Over a Million Sold” product??snake-oil

Personally, I just erase these emails from my inbox and never click the side posts on FB.   But/and – as of late – these “urgent messages” and “inbox spams” are showing up on LinkedIn as invited contacts. WTF??
Yes, that’s right …the online bible of business has succumbed!

But we’re not safe until we “Just say NO”.  We can do this folks, say no to the new age of the “Snake Oil Salesman”
