Here’s a note about the sparking American flag I used in the photo here….
It is one of my grandmother’s cherished pins she used to wear. She was my mother’s mother and singlehandedly raised her children on her own due to my grandfather James Hubert Hart dying of spinal meningitis when my mother was four years old.
Mom said the day that she finally realized that she was alive was the day she overheard someone talking about who is getting all the kids, and what houses they were all going to because Grandma couldn’t afford to take care of them all herself.
Grandma wasn’t afraid to take a man’s job in a time when it was was very unpopular for a woman to rivet airplanes -but she did.
There wasn’t anything that could stop my grandmother Ruby Hart.
She was proud to be an American citizen and so appreciative of everything that you ever did for her— just like my mother.
That’s why when she had Alzheimer’s disease-like my mother had, untiL she touched the face of God nearly a year ago I didn’t think anything of helping taking care of her.
I bought her big print Readers Digest books to encourage her to talk and keep her mind active…and they did.
She read one of them every day … so I bought more for her and she smiled as she read each story.
I found them at local libraries and we would talk about the stories in each story, which would inspire her to tell me about her life recalling memories of when she was younger.
I don’t have a digital image of Grandma-yet’ but I’ll create one for this story I didn’t know I was going to write, until writing the first sentence!
I know we have our trouble in America, but when you compare us to other countries- it’s pretty damn nice country anyway you look at it. We have precious freedoms another country can match.
I didn’t say God Bless America because I wanted everyone no matter who they were to be able to relate to the image and the meaning behind image.
I’m Christian so I’ll always say God Bless America, but as an empowered lady I would love to see all of us all over the world worry less about religion & culture and focus more about just treating each other kindly and know everyone has a right to believe what they feel strongly about.
As long as they are not hurting you or anyone then let him believe it if they find solace and peace through it.
Uniting as living, breathing people who have the power to good-is my dream for not only America but for the world.

Make your intentions genuine.
Have big picture ideas where you see the big picture of the entire world and much as the nose on your face.
Shoot for longevity in the projects you’re working on.
Genuinely try and help every client, as unique a’s they are.
When you open your mind and think of opportunities and what you can give, and ways you could help each client—great things happen.
Don’t compare ourself to what everyone else is doing. Think outside the box and think for yourself. Expand on your ideas.
If all you do is follow others, you could be following mediocrity! You want to be the one that leads the way to new, brighter Horizons!
Opportunities will arise that will appear as though if by Magic. I am a very spiritual, intuitive, Christian lady; I know that “magic” is GOD.
Blessings will surface effortlessly when you have your mind off the dollars you’re getting for the job. Instead, focus on building lasting relationships and building in creating extraordinary projects that lead to recurring work and passive income.
Life is way more than quick payoffs.
Success isn’t measured by how much money you have in the bank but rather what kind of human being you are and what your value system is. You can make good money and add value to other people’s lives and enjoy doing it. All those things are possible for you and I. You have to give it all some serious thought though, with no distractions.
Everything you do in life builds your reputation, and from your soul, your mind and attitude, your heart and your brain- your reputation will follow you the rest of your life and each positive, proactive action carves your reputation.
Do exemplary things.
Don’t be afraid of hard work because there is a huge payoff that will help more than you awaiting you.

When $65,000 a year for a drug is applauded
Paulette Le Pore Motzko’s Note to Pharmaceutical Companies on Placing People First and Nevada’s Unfair Treatment of People with Epilepsy, Civil Rights & Disabilities
I wish more pharmaceutical companies had more or a “Triple Win Attitude”: I Win, You Win & Society Wins. Huge multi million dollar companies need to keep ever present the real, flesh and blood people they are developing the drug to help.
They simply can function effectively as a business and still charge less for the consumer.
For instance, my medicine for epilepsy called Vimpat that I take is $20 a pill made by UCB. It cost nearly $2,300 a month along with my Tegretol that I take for a complex partial epilepsy. I have Nevada Medicaid and am on SSI, which allows you to make money and collect it, and pays less than SSDI-full disability. (it also took two and a half years to win with the aid of a social security disability lawyer too and I had to say goodbye to my alimony from the rocket scientist I was married to for 15 years to get that crappy $728 but my medical is covered.
Yet after stating all those facts, the state of Nevada doesn’t think anyone who was diagnosed with epilepsy has a medical conditiom or termed disabled, even though the director at the DMV told me I will automatically get a disabled placard when I update my Nevada state ID.
(I’m still trying to obtain a certified copy of my old marriage license to prove I’m Paulette Le Pore Motzko. That’s a $65 stupid document is so outrageous it is unbelievable. I’ve been divorced from him since 2001 and my name was legally changed in Garden Grove, California in 1986, when I got married. I’m going to go talk to one of my friends who is a librarian and see if she can get me the silly document free because $65 is a lot of money to prove I’m who I am! I’ve been trying to get that document 3 times now and it is difficult since my CA ID expired on my birthday last August.
Nevada needs to spend more time educating their political leaders about things like crime, human dignity, the pedestrian fatality rate and placing penalties on drunk drivers and their educating RTC and people who are public servants about various disabilities, NAMELY neurological ones like EPILEPSY. That would use everybody’s time in an effort worth expending time on.
This may be Nevada and it may have the worst weather in the United States, and 60 mile an hour-knock you on your ass dust storms, high fraud rates, allergies that wont quit due to blowing dust, and vapes and casinos on every corner with few non–smoking areas other than Starbucks.
But Nevada is still only one state in the USA it still is the United States of America. And as far as I’m concerned as far as I know, in the USA, we all have certain basic rights.
One of those rights is to be treated fairly. Denying people with epilepsy the right to use Paratransit and having the head Federal representative not know what epilepsy even is is a crime.
That should be against the law and it probably is.
After after the grand negligence that happened to me regarding Paratransit and the callousness and apathy on behalf of Senator Harry Reid’s office is disgusting.
It doesn’t reflect great kindly on him. The irony is Harry Reid can barely see and uses Paratransit himself, so you think he’d be the first understand the meaning of a doctor’s letter when a doctor writes for a patient to take a medication and says you need it to live, which mine has done since age 9.
You think he would understand as well as the governor, how important it is to look after the safety of people with epilepsy and not allow them to be injured. I was.
I was talking to Harry Reid about raising the cost of living index to $1200 a month for all people on SSI and SSDI.
I still have pictures of the first place I lived in when I first moved here. That horrid $728 a month buys nothing in terms of living quality and your standard of life. All you have to do is think and care and be a responsible person realize that along with all inflation and elevated prices going up, the cost of living index for all disabled people hasn’t been raised in over 20 years.
SSI is $200 less than what California has per month. Who created an SSI (supplementary Social Security) of $728 anyway? A monkey with an abacus? Everything needs to be updated to reflect 2017 prices. Make the minimum BE $1000 for God’s sake! Round it up. Turn the insulting, impoverished amount in to something a human being can really spend, not just make due in the real world. $1200 is actually usable and workable for the average person.
Anybody who thinks that SSI and SSDI checks are handed on a platter they are not you are sadly mistaken.

Lawyer Bill LaTour won my case in Southern California and I can’t count all of the doctors I went to and specialists and career counselors and all the questions I had to answer and psychological assessments in order to finally present my case. Most who are disabled would rather be working. In the final hearing all of the doctors and the career counselor appeared in a small courtroom and they’re the judge asked me what my name was and after about 5 minutes he reviewed all the evidence presented by every one of the doctors that I had to see you over the course of a year and a half before he finally awarded me ssi. That took a mere five minutes and those were the only words that I other than that.
You can’t sue the government but you can sue people who work for the government. And one by one I will if I don’t get my Paratransit FOR MYSELF AND SET A PRECIDENT FOR ALL WHO HAVE EPILEPSY IN THE STATE OF NEVADA.
After all, I’m the former President and founder of The Epilepsy Connection which was a grassroots organization in Orange County, California that helped countless people in California and many other states, and three other countries who had no other resources whatsoever. I’m also the former director of the Epilepsy Foundation sub affiliate in Garden Grove, California years ago.
In other words, I am a catalyst for positive change and I hope to merge forces with other disabled people making us stronger as a united team.
I’ve got arthritis in that left ankle that won’t go away, just as my dad was just about paralyzed in a wheelchair from osteoarthritis before he died several years ago.
After having a drop seizure- due to being out in 115 degree heat when I shouldn’t have been. That because I was having problems but two idiot’s went against my epileptologist’s letter stating that. I think that’s a crime isn’t it?
DAN HOWLAND AND JIM CHAMPOU, THE IDIOTS WHO DIDNT VALIDATE THAT DOCTOR’S LETTER AND THOUGHT DR. EVANGALISTA WROTE IT FOR THE FUN OF IT, INSTEAD TO PREVENT INJURY TO ME.
Maybe no lawyer in Nevada has wanted to take my case YET, IT IS A crime AND A double crime since Dan Howell and told me he didn’t care about people with epilepsy to my face and he said he didn’t care about learning about anything to do with them he liked being ignorant. After everything hits the fan and people pay the price they should have paid a couple years ago but I wasn’t any kind of health condition to be able to press charges, I hope he’s fired and not only that I hope charges are filed on him for endangerment and that is endangering me.
I believe the max I can do is $10,000 in the state of Nevada for him personally and also Jim shampoo $10,000 and also Tina Quigley, the head of RTC , who all she could say during our phone conversation was “uh huh” after I said anything. In other words, she did nothing and could have been forced my Paratransit ID once suck it but she did not. That’s another $10,000.
They put my life at risk because I was having drop seizures of time and that was written in the letter so that’s called personal injury and I with all the evidence that I can bring which is a hell of a lot of it I call it instant win.
It is the principle here. I am hoping I won’t need to and they will come to their senses. Maybe the Governor can hear the whole sordid story and make it right trade she seemed like the most level-headed person in the most articulate intelligent person I’ve seen hold office in Nevada so far.
I think Nevada has some disabled Senators who have disabled minds and need to greatly educate themselves about what all this abilities are an update themselves with 2017.
Civil rights and then do the educate themselves on disabilities that go far beyond physical ones in a wheelchair.
The statistics on disability is there are more people with invisible disabilities like epilepsy than those with more visible ones.
California was better with Paratransit by far. I had Paratransit in California over 25 years and I come to the 1800’s Wild West High Desert of Nevada and here they turn me down. I called Paratransit once waiting 2 hours and after the two hours the lady said, ” oh didn’t you know? Just because you call Paratransit doesn’t mean it’ll show up!”
You shouldn’t be a leader in the state if you are igorant in the ways I have seen. Dina Titus, Head of Transportation had no desire to help me get what I was owed as a disabled American citizen.
Nevada Medicaid pays for my medicine now and I hope it always does because it’s the best combination I have ever been on in my now 55 years young.
Even all that being said Senator Reid doesn’t think I have a disability-isn’the that rediculous?
I even sent Senator Reid pictures of my medicine and all the vitamins that I take and the doctor’s letter from my specialist who prescribes my medicine and the copy of my medical ID bracelet and he still didn’t think that I was disabled!
Living in Nevada is like living in the wild west where they think they can do anything. The American with Disabilities Act is something that I know all about and because I was turned down for Paratransit here I could sue every senator in the entire State and when because my civil rights were violated and I broke my left ankle as a result of having a drop seizure a year ago and was nearly in power chair after! Was I disabled enough for you then Nevada huh 7 read the governor ? Is that what you want to but everybody Wheelchairs and that’s the only kind of stability you think exist in this world ? Wake up you need to get your head examined and go look at the medical book and read it all of this abilities that exist in this world there quite a lot of them we have a lot of components to our bodies not just a physical body without your neurological system you’re nothing you can’t write you can’t speak you can’t do anything.
I now have arthritis in that left ankle, which makes might a personal injury case that I didn’t want come into the state I just wanted a place to live it was cheap that’s it I didn’t come here for the gambling I don’t drink I don’t smoke I don’t do drugs and I don’t gamble why did I come here for cheap rent that’s it hat’s part of living in Nevada is not something I like but it’s also against my civil rights too.
I’ll be talking to the governor of Nevada this year about all of those issues as well as others that affect everyone or just same old and about raising the cost of living index for all people who are disabled to something that allows them to live in dignity, which the $728 a month does not.
I want to see that all people can afford tm what they need to keep them alive.
Hear that pharmaceutical companies?
Remember the human element.
Remember why you’re developing the medicine in the first place.
What good is a fantastic medicine with a high efficiency rate and the low side effect rate and a huge success rate if the patients cannot afford it? I’m asking you that question mark I was made a rocket scientist for 15 years and I’m fairly bright that’s not even logical is it to make the price outlandish.
If drugs are so outrageously priced limiting who can take them, it defeats the purpose why the drug was ever created.
I wish the scientist who developed the drugs could price the drugs because then they would be priced at something reasonable that makes sense.
Because people who are scientists creating these compounds to help people would never charge people outrageous prices because they’re more humanitarian in spirit than the simply sales reps promoting the products getting huge commissions driving company cars!
Let the pharmacology medicine developers help set a price that is more accurate.
I saw pharmaceutical reps every time I went into one of my neurology offices in Orange off La Veta when I was married years ago. I think what they do should be against the law because they’re giving doctors Kickbacks to promote drugs. because of that, doctors are not looking at to the best needs of the patient. The Pharmaceutical reps are allowed to dangle money in front of a doctor’s faces and saying over here I’ll give you this money -a bribe.
How in the hell can a good doctor think straight with the ” Wheeler Dealers” walking around dangling incentives.
Pharmaceutical companies remind me of real estate companies in California. Everybody is so greedy that they have to make “over profit” aking for way more than is affordable for most everyone except millionaires.
Medicine companies: Remember the people FIRST. Without people in this world you have nothing. Nothing but dust and a bunch of chemicals a test tube that people NEED.

I created the following document on my Galaxy Note 4 Phablet and the edits are coming in on my Samsung S2 tablet. My phablet overheated just like I do when I even think about the things that I’ve been through for no good reason. I almost was history in this town so rather than be history I’m going to make history instead, making it better for everyone.

You can make the difference in subtle and very profound ways, without even knowing it in another person’s life.
The next time you really listen to your intuition or inner voice as I call it, give this some true thought:
Think about someone you know who could use your expertise about skill, a new trade, or about a job that you’ve done for many years. Think about something very easy for you but hard for them. Step up to the plate in The Game of Life and offer to make their path a little smoother and a little easier.
If you know someone who is building a website or a blog, and you happen to be a master at it, show them how to do it just because you can. Don’t look for money or for compensation- but just do it because it makes you feel like you made a difference and it’s rewarding.
In life, you don’t have to make money on everything, but rather to make the difference and to be that extra spoke and wheel it makes that car run, or to mentor another and know from that moment on, the person you’re mentoring will have opportunities unveiled because of your actions is highly rewarding and empowering .
Next, find someone who looks really downtrodden, sitting all alone and say something to that person. Say something that’s 100% genuine AND LETS THEM KNOW THEY MATTER and that you know that they‘re not indivisible. To raise someone’s self-esteem and to make them aware of their true potential, to me, is one of the greatest satisfaction on the face of the Earth. It’s not just that one instance that is so intrinsic or special, but the POWERADE of that one instance leading to a chain reaction in a lifetime of change for that human being.
I know Dr. Leo Buscaglia had said in his fabulous book called LOVE, that I highly recommend, that I read in 1984 when I was in college that:
“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, smile, a kind word, a listening ear. An honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”
(I have the magnet on my fridge and I read it all the time of the power that every individual has to make an impact on other people’s lives.)
It is the ittle things in life like that make it special, for not just yourself but for them as well because they create that wonderful thing called “Triple Win”- I win, um, and Society wins. Just imagine that from moment Society wins period That’s a concept was introduced to me in the Master’s certification program at Chapman University back in 1997.
Here on March 12th 2017, when all of our clocks for fast-forwarded an hour due to daylight savings time, fast forward the result of your positive actions before you do them and see the big picture of your great works before you do them. Be a Visionary. Be a catalyst for positive change on a intimate, one-on-one basis and in your community too.
You be the huge difference in someone’s life and build some new friendships and bonds that will last a lifetime from your initiative.

Friday:) A Fine Day and Fine Friends, Furry and Otherwise – http://wp.me/p3106f-2wT
This article was inspired by one of my recent followers, who went through a very tragic and tumultuous year. Because of this it stopped this once prolific writer from producing anything at all.
Sometimes we can be over critical on ourselves, overanalyzing everything that we do. That quality doesn’t help us when we create anything of value in this world, written or otherwise. Create because you want to create. Whether it be be a mud pie, a sandcastle, a watercolor painting, a photograph, a beautiful song, a recipe, a loaf of bread, or the manuscript for your first book.

Writing can be catharsis or it can be euphoria. You can carve every word just as though you were Michelangelo and you were carving marble transforming something hard and solid into something that breathes with life.
That’s the analogy I like best when it comes to writing, and it has served me well since my Honors English days in High School. I took every English class that Garden Grove High had to offer I had phenomenal teachers, better than even in college.
And one thing I did in every writing class is writing is to write in my personal Journal -and just write every day.
In other words, write things that the world never see.
There are things that are only for you, God, and serve a very valid purpose. If you don’t have a journal, go buy a nice one at Barnes & Noble, or simply use Microsoft Office Word on your smartphone computer or tablet.
Through devoting time to writing in a special place that inspires you, which is very important, extraordinary things will emerge. Stories can develop right before your eyes, poems can be written, recipes can be thought of.
With everything you write anywhere, especially on a Blog that seen all over the world – you’re gaining experience, exposure, notoriety, readership and it’s just enjoyable. The enjoyable part is the most important one of all.
Once you start carving out time for writing, you’ll start carving words that are memorable and lasting and worth remembering.
If you are a writer, check out my other blog called A Writer’s Joy. A Writer’s Joy
Any kind of art, written or otherwise, is an extension of your soul. Art I’d an extension of your inner most being. Writing is one of those timeless arts, that if used in the right way, can outlive you do great things long after you leave this earth, creating a legacy.
Write because you feel what you’re doing is beautiful and has merit, or serves a valid purpose, or can simply give joy, enlightenment someone, educate or you’d simply like to share it with the world. That’s exactly what you can do on a blog.
I’m going to be adding to this book list over the next week. I’m going to start with these two, which in themselves are phenomenal starting points, even if no other books were added to the list.
I hope my words of encouragement and blessings on all of your present and future creations extraordinary Beyond Your Wildest Dreams! To all of the artists, writers, photographers, musicians, and chefs create what’s never been created before. Enjoy the process. Learn everything you can about your craft. Read books, and associate with people who are doing what you want to do and let them enter you in every way they possibly can. Listen to advice and listen to helpful criticism but don’t let others dim the light that shines inside you that’s waiting to burst like a beacon to the world.

Share your story about you how you recently empowered someone else to do something they didn’t know they had the ability to do. Don’t ever just compare yourself with what other people do. Don’t be the status quo. Everybody was jumping off a cliff would you jump with them?
Just because everybody is doing something stupid doesn’t mean you have to do it too?
Sometimes what the majority does isn’t exactly the best thing to do, it just may be the easiest thing to do or the lazy thing to do. What gives you the most feeling of being rewarded or at least where I’m concerned, is to do the right thing. Sometimes you’re the only one that does the right thing but that’s okay; we need people who make it right, who show the way, and who say, “hey you really matter!”
Share your true life story showing Human Excellence in its truest form. Make your story hundred and fifty words or less and put it in the comment box below. Thank you to all the many new followers this week!

Helen Keller Says: “I, for one, love strength, daring, fortitude. I do not want people to kill the fight in them; I want them to fight for right things.”
One of the earliest known pictures of Helen Keller with her extraordinary teacher Anne Sullivan. She was my role model since I was 9 years old diagnosed with epilepsy. I discovered her and playing piano I’m cooking, and writing, it is very early age and very pivotal age in my life. I realized after reading what she did dealt with what she had to deal with that I could do anything I put my mind to do, if I only wanted to badly enough.
Later picture of Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan, also from Pinterest, . Photographer unknown.
Anne Sullivan brought Enlightenment to Helen Keller’s life. Before Anne Sullivan entered Helen Keller’s dark and Silent world, she didn’t understand why she was there and didn’t understand that everything had a meeting and everything had a name in this world. I suggest you read any of the books that Helen Keller wrote. Your life and your attitude will be forever changed. She was brilliant and it was Anne Sullivan that brought out that brilliance hiding like a tulip waiting to bloom buried deep in the Earth.
From Helen Keller daily.

Smith Magazine is a wonderful magazine I just discovered by doing a search on Google.
The most difficult thing in writing I think, used to be succinct and concise say what you want and few words. It’s not so much pinpointing the right descriptive terms and saying what you want, but for most writers it’s trimming excess verbage.
Is it hard to write but then again I’m going to try my hand at my imagination along with it.
If you’ve never written a six-word story before well join the club!

You each are like special gifts that I unwrap each day when I read your comments and also explore your own blogs, stories and photographs.
I am very blessed to know you all through WordPress, and others through Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and some fresh air addresses and phone numbers. ( I am not on Facebookmuch any more due to it being too distracting on my goals I am trying to accomplish.)
I am a voice-to-voice and face-to-face kind of person anyway. I don’t like to text and it was clear using messaging thing, because I start feeling like a robot rather than a human being.
Keep being wonderful and special and I will keep trying to empower, educate, entertain and inspire you back!

We’re Still Here – http://wp.me/p46axJ-pb
The theme today on Totally Inspired Mind is “the high desert”….I searched “high desert” on the Reader on my WordPress app on my Galaxy Note 4 I am writing this with. Up came wonderful, vibrant, refreshing stories from writer/photographer/bloggers living in New Mexico, Arizona and Nevada- which is how I spotted Jolyn Young’s true life story about what it’s like to be married to a Rancher and cowboy and to live in the Wild West.
Jolyn’s story “We’really Still Here” inspired me. Her photos, which I to use as illustrations later, and in her story of what it is like to live in a rustic, rural wilderness that at times is so harsh yet so beautiful.
I was born in Tucson, Arizona and I remember as a kid at 4 years old, the black stallions running in the Prairie surrounding red and purple painted mountains and seeing Indian tee pees. I went crazy every time I saw a “horsie”-as I called them then, and still think they’re one of the most beautiful animals that walk the earth.
So check out read Jolyn’s story and you’ll see her photos when you click on the link. The ones I have embellishe’d this article with were especially selected from Zedge by me. You can save them as wallpapers for your computer or smart devices.
So, from the big city girl me enjoy this insight into the life of a country girl Jolyn Young..
She makes me want to get my tripod out you’re going to take my Nikon out on the open range and go shoot some pictures and go ride a horse!

Totally Inspired Mind: Where Positive Minds Congregate
I was trying to put into words the term for when you do something just because it is right but not because it EASY or THE STATUS QUO. A fellow writer and blogger friend of mine called it “moral courage” the other day.
We are all connected on this big, water covered planet we call earth. There is only one of them, so if we mess it up or the people who inhabit it, we never have a chance to go back and fix it. Life on earth as we know it is a “one shot deal” so we better get it right the first time and quit living as though everything is expendable.
We have a throwaway society anymore and people and the apathy towards people in general has gone along with the trash we throw away. It shouldn’t be and I am not saying that all people are apathetic, because of course they are not. There are just many who could do far more than they do for others they meet in everyday life.
Once the water systems are polluted, what do we do?
Just these thoughts are good ones to ponder in terms of how we should be making sure there are no oil spills killing our fish and wildlife and ruining the water.
Human beings have a lot in common with the earth in that they are both mostly composed of water. Without it, all life ceases to be.
What about bombs and the warfare, chemical or otherwise? Since I was married to a rocket scientist and he was the master of logic and science; since we were married for fifteen years, I chose to take with me the best of what I learned and the best of our memories together. Why throw a bomb that will kill thousands of innocent women, children, and ruin the land around it, making it impossible to plant anything-just to wipe out that one “target”? It isn’t logical to me.
Why not find and train more people who speak the languages of the countries we are fighting right now, or at least have our military people in like Afghanistan and Syria?
Try something you haven’t tried before.
Success models are made up of prototypes that worked. Once you know the model, you can strive to create one that works as well or supersedes it.
How about our budget that the so-called great leaders in the United States of America have concocted?

There has not been any trace of anyone from the two Bush’s to Reagan who has ever tried to come up with a budget that would start paying off the debt already incurred. Obama keeps spending and China owns more of America. It’s like a dirty American secret that nobody wants to take accountability for.
Will our next president of the United States make sure the priorities are in the right places? I certainly hope so, but rather than seeing human beings who invented great leadership skills, I see Trump as an overgrown brat who tragically never grew up. I see Clinton with major trust issues going in the office, after breaching national securiy. Wish you did with a lot more than just sharing emails! People lost lives because of those emails and that cannot be overstated.
I haven’t sat through one debate becauase it is not one by true definition. A debate is where people are asked intelligent, hard-hitting questions and they answer them , and an intelligent fashion . Trump and Clinton are good at insulting each other and name calling and badgering. I had little tolerance for badgering in elementary school and I have absolutely zero tolerance for that kind of behavior now.
Is there some kind of moral conduct and we can demand that of our presidential candidates?
It’s almost as though you need a referee make in a boxing match.
‘ve never seen a time in our political history where we’ve needed in an actual referee like it’s a boxing match verses to great minds talking about what they would each do. We never had that in the election from the get-go
I am not sure what kind of actual good they can accomplish, since they are not showing the best of who they are when that is exactly what they should be doing!
This is idiocy and being that I was born and raised in The United States and never want to see the day when China owns America.
What is going on is a vicious cycle of stupidity, borrowing on China’s credit and we are looking the fool in the eyes of other countries.
Before I get on a this one topic alone, that infuriates me at the stupidity and complete lack of responsibility on the parts of all who work for the government for not prioritizing paying the debt of the USA.
I hope I see the day when a budget is created and adhered to. I hope I see the day when we have a new president who has one known social security number, and stands for things that benefit Americans instead of big businesses.
I hope I see the day when you can get a job in America without having to know Vietnamese or Spanish, when it is America you are trying to get the job and not Vietnam or Mexico.
I hope I see the day when people try to be more kind and tolerant of each other’s differences.
Movie makers, producers and directors put positive and empowering messages out there instead coming up with a crime show give goofballs and psychos ideas to blow things up and kill people in movie theaters. Values can and could dictate our society, if we all wanted that badly enough.
I hope I see the day when our president realizes that every action has a chain reaction be it a bomb, something that is not needed that tax payer’s end up paying for. China is buying more of America up every day as the imaginary credit card is used.
They print up so much “play money” that I don’t think they understand in the real world, for you and I and everyone else, we all have to pay our debts. Why isn’t the White House and those who write the checks accountable as we are?
Breaking laws to fit personal agendas doesn’t make me proud of the current leadership. Can’t we as Americans demand to see how the money is spent? They are working for the American people and are supposed to be our ambassadors.
What are your major concerns for our country? What would you like to see happen in the next year in America?
Please Mr. President Obama, well you’re still president- open your eyes, wake up and be accountable for what you spend regarding our country.
Students arming Syrian terrorist and creating Isis why don’t you look at all the veterans who have no homes?
What did you think of raising the cost of living index for all people who are disabled on SSI and SSDI?
Why don’t you see that every American in every state can live in dignity and peace and have all their Corporal needs met before you think of taking money we don’t have and giving it to other countries?
NOW is a good time to create and adhere to a workable budget, not just hype.
Start caring and acting responsibly and care about America being owned my Americans and how we take care of it now is the gift we will hand down to our children.
