June review

Wow June was a busy month for my blog. I started listening to KIRO FM during the day, which gave me an unbelievable amount of food to blog as my mind careened through the material. We don't have TV at home - and each time we've hooked up the cable and turned to the news, only to hear vile report after vile report, we're sorry we wasted our time. Yet, there are things going on in the nation that we should be aware of and the more I listen, the more I want to get moving to do something to prevent us from becoming a socialized nation. I feel the fire burning to get to school and become both a journalist to report it and wake the nation up and an attorney so I can get in to court and fight against it. Whatever "it" may be. To prepare my children for what their nation will face and not be sheople but organized and involved. Yet, I find myself lacking in the knowledge or ability to start and frozen by the same issues that hold most people from movement. I am no different - I just blog about it to the 5 or 6 people that actually read this stuff (thank you thank you thank you thank you!).

Several times over the last month I have been driving to work in the sunshine, listening to some report about the changes of our country that may be leading to a socialized government and I realize how much I enjoy my freedom in America. The freedom to choose my job, to get up in the morning, drive to work, leave when I want, choose to make more or less money, choose to have insurance or not - and not really have the government breathing down my neck. I am thankful for the government funds that have helped us out in our times of need. Unemployment, insurance coverage for children, food assistance, educational funding, stimulus payments. We've used what was available when needed and grateful. Do I think that's the answer for this country? I'm not sure how we can afford it. I don't know what the answer is but I don't think it's socialism. We have made decisions in our household that have kept us from being financially lucrative as we could. No college, had children, taken on responsibility, debt, part time work - a multitude of choices that may have set income potential limits. Do I resent another person's success? No. But I do resent those with success that take advantage of the backs of the people around them to promote their wealth. Story of humanity I guess. Do I think their wealth should be distributed amongst us? No - but I do think there should be accountability for those that take advantage. (would that mean some government officials would have to pay the price - maybe?... Sssssorrrry!(Gilly, Sat Night Live)).

Mr. Chadwell and I did get in to a discussion when Rush Limbaugh's last contract and reported salary because I was blown away by how much his salary was. I guess that's free enterprise but I do have the thoughts that some people are paid way too much for what they are doing. It's unbelievable. And then we have starving people in this country. Our towns. However, there are people who are starving or homeless by their own choices in life. I guess that's accountability yes? Consequences to choices? Some times. With over 6 billion people on the earth how do you wade through each case and decide who deserves help and who doesn't?

How do you make it fair? Those of you that know me long enough, know I've been asking the "fair" question my whole life and it could bring a chuckle. My son now asks that question all the time - he's definitely and apple off of this tree. Anyway, that's June. It's definitely been an interesting month - what will July hold? Ahhhh, more subscribers I hope!

Happy sunny day to you all -
