There is something Wrong with How Government Deals with Veterans

Now it’s time to talk about all the “Programs” that are supposed to be helping #Veterans. I think the government can make better use of funding if they just cut checks directly to veterans. Everybody wants to “Thank” Veterans for their service, but few actually provide good assistance.

And why are veterans disjointed from the military, for the most part, once they separate or retire?  The same energy should go into supporting Veterans directly by the military when they leave, as you had to get us to join.  Everybody sees the “big picture”.  So, you should lead by example.  Read More

I am Thankful and Grateful

Recently, I had a thought session.  I was wondering if I could be disappointed, dissatisfied; yet thankful and grateful all at the same time.  And, my conclusive answer is, Yes.  This is how…

First, I am very thankful and grateful to Word/God for life, health, and strength; and the ability and power to do what I must.  At the same time, I recognize the current state and situation that I find myself (which constantly changes).  Sometimes, that leads to frustration, dissatisfaction and disappointment; but, I work hard at NOT murmuring– instead I focus more on being prayerful.

I find that prayer/meditation and supplication, with thanksgiving (as the Bible mentions in Philippians 4:6) takes me outside of my problem and situation and allows me the space to breathe and think; and, in that space, I find peace. 

I’ve learned that it is ok to feel and work through your feelings, work through them and still maintain an attitude of gratefulness and thanksgiving.  The process allows me to “Be angry; yet sin not” because in the end, I’m still thankful and grateful.  It’s good to know that I don’t need to be hypocritical or fake in my walk with the Word.  If you are still working things out in your walk of faith, I encourage you to keep pressing, keep believing; keep being thankful and grateful. Selah.

This Is Why We Must Make Republicans And Democrats Minority Parties In Congress…

They both technically are Republican, and neither represent the people as they should. I am going to lay this out in its simplest terms because this is how it was revealed to me.  Politics have always been relative to money and power.  But at some point, back in the day, the Republicans, the party of Lincoln, got involved with fighting to end slavery.  Eventually, those in the Democratic party who were fervent in their efforts to deny people their earned rights, took over the Republican party; leaving the Democratic party as a weaker version of the Republican party (because they all didn’t leave).

I Think Unions and Employment Agencies Should Have a Paradigm Shift

Unions and employment agencies both serve a good purpose in the workforce.  Now, however, it seems like there is a void that is not being filled, and somebody needs to fill it.  Many workers have their resumes out there, but either the pay is too low, or in areas where workers aren’t currently located.

What if, unions, employment agencies and these workers networked and created viable co-ops?  With a slight change in operational procedures unions and employment agencies could help workers organize and raise the needed capital to form their own small companies.  They could also assist with management, training, and identifying needs to be addressed locally, nationally and globally. Thus, reviving communities all over America. 

When Medicare-For-All passes, and it will eventually pass, unions would need to change the services they offer, and this will be a great role for them and employment agencies to fulfill.  The could also provide co-ops with negotiation training so that they can compete for government contracts to provide goods and services across the nation.  Time to discuss — what do you think?

It Is Time For An Education Overhaul

Comments are closed.

All my kids are grown, but I’m still interested in the overall community and how to advance the ideals of education; full, and truthful education; education that includes the histories of ALL people living in America.  I like the thought of public education, but, I’m becoming more and more a fan of Khan Academy, and programs like it too.  Mainly because of the what ifs.  You know, things like:
