Confession time. Literally, for several years now, I’ve dabbled with the website but have always placed my trust and confidence in trying other options as my main sources of income. They work for a while. But I always end up coming back here.
And, here is blogging, writing, podcasting, …creating… Restarts are a bitch. And yet, I find peace in letting out my thoughts and opinions.
So, for the umpteenth time, here we go! Anything and everything are going to be my topics, and I’m loving every minute of it. Join me. Support me. Tell your people about me. Let’s go.
Have you ever had someone tell you “Don’t take it personal”? My response is, How can I not?
You are personally talking to me. I am the one standing in front of you. I am the one you are addressing. So, if we are being real, I think it’s a cop out to say “Don’t take it personal”. Because, they probably don’t want to address what is coming as reciprocation.
I’ve heard the term used especially in business. As if, them, adding that little jewel of a phrase, is going to emotionally detach you. No, sir… It was me personally putting in the time, thought and effort into doing whatever it was that needed to be done, so I am personally invested.
As a matter of fact, it is my belief that everything we do is “personal” … that’s why when someone offends you, or says or does something that you don’t agree with, you want them to take “Personal Responsibility“.
So, please– speak your truth, but don’t try to patronize or belittle the situation by dismissing the personal. You said what you said, or did what you did… So now, just be prepared for the follow up.
Peace and blessings.

Thank you all! I tend to be a bit withdrawn and reserved during personal losses. Some of you may not know, but my Dad passed on January 27, 2022. It was during a very busy time, so I’ve taken a little time to recharge and reflect.
I want to thank those who knew me and my family for reaching out and sending us your thoughts, prayers, condolences and best wishes. We thank you and appreciate all that you have done. I appreciate you all tremendously!
…Looking forward to interacting with you all again real soon… We have things to talk about and work to do!
I said that once my Nomad Internet experience was over, I would return here to give an update on the transaction—regardless of the outcome. Welcome to Part 2…
Good News!!! It ended a lot better than it started. Today, I received notice that the refund(s) had been credited. And, they were! Let’s discuss.
A day or two after I posted the first article, “Let’s Talk About Nomad Internet, My Review”, Nomad customer support sent me a link to a page that instructed how to process refund and print the return label. Basically I had to send them back the device first (which I gladly did), and then they would begin the refund process after they received it. I had to mail it through USPS (Us Postal). The instructions stated that it would probably take another 10-14 days, but I actually think the process took about a week.
We primarily communicated by emails and the process went relatively well.
I am disappointed that the product didn’t work for me, however; because I was really looking forward to an Internet package that was portable and that I could use anywhere. But, I’m glad that I was able to move on, without a loss, to try something new.
Concerning this experience however, I am glad that it turned out the way that it did. Either way though, I want to encourage you, as a consumer, to speak your peace. If you are paying for a service or product you should expect to get something that works for you. If it doesn’t, then say something. It might help you, the business, and others. Try to be fair, but always speak your truth, and state your expectations. Don’t be afraid to speak up for yourself.
My search continues for a good service, but actually my regular cellphone speeds are pretty good…sometimes. But, that’s another topic for another post.
When candidate Joe Biden in essence said that “nothing would fundamentally change”, I think people should have believed that was what he meant. If they would have believed him then, it would not be a surprise to them now that the watered down “Build Back Better Act” was all that was going to be offered in the first place. He doesn’t seem to be interested in real progressive issues. Nor do I believe he tries hard to pass progressives policies. President Biden talks a good game in public; but looks like he’s an elbow rubber in private. I truly hope I am wrong about this, but– that is what it looks like.
So here we are; with the #BuildBackBetter plan headed down the #ObamaCare road of weak legislation #BoughtByBusiness. I gotta tell you, this is frustrating and disheartening. DEMOCRATS SEEM TO BE LOSERS JUST LIKE REPUBLICANS… MAYBE NOT AS BIG, BUT LOSERS JUST THE SAME. AND, THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA IS ALSO A TOOL OF BIG BUSINESS. There ya’ go, I said it. …I’ll probably be discussing my opinions on that in future posts.
For now, let’s continue talking about the Democrats and their disastrous style of leadership. Democrats start out negotiating with themselves (in a bad way) even before negotiations start. They seem to be timid and too cautious to speak up boldly for the people they’re supposed to represent; and they give up at the first sign of a legislative fight. That’s why it puzzles me that #Progressives seem to always feel the need to run as a #Democrat. Advice: STOP IT!!! It doesn’t work!!! They disown you every time! Do your own thing. And keep doing it until you win.
I honestly believe many, if not most voters, have gone through the same iterations I did. The Republican party– they sucked. The Democrats– they were weak. That is why I’m nonaffiliated. I love it and I’m ready to vote for people who are ready to fight for average people.
The Democratic Party should realize their party is being taken over by Republicans. I need Progressives to step forward and be progressive–before you get drug down with the Democrats. You know they are going to blame you for any losses and take credit for any wins. That being said, if you want to add to your ranks, reclaim your energy and power.
Don’t be afraid to stand alone, and don’t compromise. Make them come to you, instead of you running behind them. Doing so only makes you look weak right now. You represent a large voting block and you have a year to show people you can govern; and govern well. You need more progressives –so ask the American people to get more progressives voted into office. It’s your time. Do something with it.
