Greatest Love of All by Whitney Houston

You have to love yourself first and then you can really love someone else. Peace, Barbara

I believe the children are our future,
Teach them well and let them lead the way
Show them all the beauty they possess inside
Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
Let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be

Everybody’s searching for a hero
People need someone to look up to
I never found anyone who fulfilled my needs
A lonely place to be, and so I learned to depend on me

I decided long ago never to walk in anyone’s shadow
If I fail, if I succeed, at least I lived as I believed.
No matter what they take from me they can’t take away my dignity

Because the greatest love of all is happening to me
I found the greatest love of all inside of me

The greatest love of all
Is easy to achieve learning to love yourself,
it is the…

This is What Should Have Happened Before…

This is because the government is open. The people know what we want.

Congress, we the people are your bosses. You forgot that but we won't at election time.

We the people freed ourselves from the British. We built the greatest country with the most rights and freedom. You should never forget that again.  Because this is the government for the people, by the people. This is our country and we make it great. I vow I will not vote for anyone who voted to close our government.



Finally!! The fever broke ……

The Senate still needs to vote this hour. I think they will vote for the bill. Let’s hope

It Is What It Is


It’s a complete capitulation by Republicans.

If you replaced “body” with “caucus,” you could ask the same question of House Speaker John Boehner. It was clear, from the start, that Boehner’s heart wasn’t in the shutdown or the fight to defund the Affordable Care Act. But now his caucus has lost its desire to fight as well. As reported by several outlets, Republicans have agreed to a “deal” that reopens the government through January 15, raises the debt ceiling through early February, allows the Treasury to resume “extraordinary measures” to delay hitting the debt limit, requires both chambers to reach a budget deal by December, provides back pay for federal workers, and requires enhanced income verification for Obamacare beneficiaries.

There’s nothing in here for Democrats, but that doesn’t matter: It’s a complete capitulation by Republicans, made worse by the beating they’ve taken in the court of public opinion…

Senators and Congress Representatives

“Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don’t stand in the doorway
Don’t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There’s a battle outside ragin‘.
It’ll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin’.”

― Bob Dylan.

Congress, we the people need you to stop all of the politics. It is fifteen hours until we default.  You are embarrassing us in front of the world. You are messing up the strength of America. And you are making 800,000 people suffer. They aren’t your neighbors because they don’t have your wealth, but they are your fellow citizens. The Constitution assures us we are equal. Yet you aren’t doing your job and you are still collecting your pay and receiving and using your benefits.

Our American Congress

Our American Congress

There are also the people effected by the government shutdown because the aftermath is trickling down. How will all of you be recorded in history?  Our future youth are going to be reading about you and your unpatriotic behavior in their history books Can you imagine what will be written about you. In my sixty three years I have never been this ashamed of being an American. I have been ashamed before. Take Vietnam for instance. Or Nixon’s clear lack of character and ethics.

I believe there is some racism involved. President Obama’s skin color isn’t an issue and if it is for you, then you are a racist and you will always find someone to hate. Racism is hatred and hatred tears apart all aspects of our society. This is not a civilized culture. You all may have forgotten what civil behavior really is. You have given our country a black eye. It isn’t too late to put your own special interests aside and do your job. Get our government open. The affordable health care act is law. The Supreme Court has upheld it. You are beating a dead horse.

These Founding men were radical and liberal.

These Founding men were radical and liberal.

Your time for getting even with each other, of obstructing justice, and teetering on the cliff of destroying our country is running out.  You are an embarrassment to the American people.  Make America strong again. Stop thinking about your own wants.  Think about the 98% who are really being hurt by your behavior.

OPEN UP OUR GOVERNMENT. OPEN IT TODAY. I vote and if you don’t open government, you will never get my vote and I know many who feel the same way.
