Today we honor all of the veterans that have been brave an courageous enough to serve our country. It’s amazing what these people do and sacrifice on a daily basis all for our freedoms. I can’t thank the men and women of our military who have dedicated their lives to our country enough. Happy Veteran’s Day to all of our Veterans and their families and friends. Thank you for serving us.
Some people have some of the most controversial bumper stickers. Other have bumper stickers that celebrate their children and their accomplishments. There are even those bumper stickers that honor our service men and women.
Well, this afternoon as I sat at a light waiting to turn left I noticed a bumper sticker on the back of a work truck that looked like it was for some type of construction company. On one side there was a basic bumper sticker that mentioned the superb drivers of the company and on the other side was the bumper sticker that kind of cracked me up and made my day. It said, ” If 10% is enough for God, it should be enough for the IRS!”
I couldn’t help but laugh when I read that and then thought about how much I actually pay in taxes every year. 10% would be nice.
One of the moms I talk to online is fromÂ Canada. I met her in an online forum for expecting mothers. Â She was my belly buddy. Â We were both expecting our girls to be born on the same day. Anyway, we were talking about some of the differences between the United States and Canada. Â We could have gone on and on about a million things, especially health care.Â I had to pay a ton of money when I had Lady Bug. Â She didn’t have any out of pocket fees. Â I can’t even begin to fathom what I couldÂ haveÂ done with the thousands I could have saved if we lived there.
My belly buddy offered to let Lady Bug and I come visit her during the holiday season. Â I think it would be really great to get out of the city and visit her. Â The girls could play together and have a ton of fun. After all they are only three days apart. Â We’ve known each other since we were pregnant but have never met. Â Some of the other mommies in our group of friends have had meet up, but none of them have lived this far apart.
I’m excited to visit her and see what it’s like up there. Â I better get moving on passports for Lady Bug and I. Â I hope we can get them in time, otherwise we’ll have to wait till next year. Â Maybe we can visit in the spring if it takes six months like I’ve heard it does.
I don’t know how many of you know who Charles Manson is but he is one more piece of work.Â He and his followers were responsible for one of the most gruesome murders in Hollywood.Â What I don’t understand is how many women there were that were his followers.Â Even after Charles Manson was sent to prison for life, he still managed to control these women.
Lynette Fromme was one of those women.Â In 1975, she attempted to assassinate then President Ford.Â Well, she was let out of prison at the age of 60 years old today.Â Is this justice?Â I don’t know.Â She has a notorious history of violence and I honestly am afraid that she’s not over that history.Â How in the world can a woman let a man brainwash her like Charles Manson has?Â There must be some mental disorder present or something.Â There’s no doubt Charles has one in my mind but that just happens to be my opinion.
You would think that in this day in time, men would realize that women can think for themselves but apparently that’s not the way it is in Africa.Â It seems that a college student asked Hillary what her husband thought of China’s role there.Â Well that didn’t go over well with Hillary.
She promptly told the student that she was the Secretary of State and her husband has nothing to do with it.Â I believe she said, and I quote “I’m not going to be channeling my husband!”Â Great response if you ask me.Â She’s one tough lady so you go Hillary!!!!Â She deserves a lot more respect than she received from that young man.Â I bet he’ll think twice before he sticks his foot in his mouth again with Hillary.
