TERM LIMITS NEEDED FOR CONGRESS

“I’d like to address our state of affairs about our U.S. congressmen and the multitude of people running for our president’s job in our next election in the USA.

None of them has the backbone to address term limits for all congressmen. It was the best thing we ever did when we made a two-term limit for the president of the United States.

The only thing the congressmen think about, who have been in over two terms, is what do I need to do to be sure I have a secure retirement and a medical plan for the rest of my life for doing nothing.

If we kicked out all the congressmen that have exceeded two terms, the new blood that would take their place could not possibly be any worse than what we have now.

I think anyone running for president who would put two-term limits on his agenda and mean it would be our next president of the United States.”

Thoughts for today, #177 …. “The Power of Grandmas”!!


Grands

~~June 15, 2015~~ 

A grandmother’s job never ends.

Many grandmothers in our society step in to raise children when their mother is unavailable. Even in the best of situations, having a grandmother to help with child raising and to provide a softer touch is often a welcome intrusion. The other side of the issue is that grandmothers have to realize when it is time to step back and keep their mouths shut. If there is a healthy father and mother, they are the ones with the final say in how to raise their children.

Grandma’s Wings

Grandma, I wonder
where you keep your wings.

Are they hung in your closet
with the rest of your things?

Do you put them away
and just use them at night

or give them to Rosie
to polish up bright.

I know you have wings,
for this must be true,

’cause God always gives
them to Angels just like you.

Something to think about ….. “FACT: Disparity and Inequality”

RICHEST 250 PEOPLE IN THE WORLD

This list is billionaire guaranteed!!!

Not narrowed to one category, this list contains the richest people of the entire world. This list is purely based off of net worth and only contains individuals with a net worth that exceeds $1 billion. From business tycoons to the entertainment industry, anyone is eligible to make it as long as they have the cash.

FIND THE LIST HERE

The world’s wealthiest people aren’t known for travelling by bus, but if they fancied a change of scene then the richest 85 people on the globe – who between them control as much wealth as the poorest half of the global population put together – could squeeze onto a single double-decker.

The extent to which so much global wealth has become corralled by a virtual handful of the so-called ‘global elite’ is exposed in a new report from Oxfam.

It warned that those richest 85 people across the globe share a combined wealth of £1tn, as much as the poorest 3.5 billion of the world’s population.

The “Power of Words Award” …. from the IdealisticRebel!!


Power

~~February 20, 2015~~ 

It Is What It Is” has been nominated for a new blog award created by a incredibly wonderful blogger and friend The IdealisticRebel. We are humbled and honored by this nomination and accept the award. 

It has special meaning to us because many a’times we wonder if what we post has any effect on anyone out there reading, visiting and leaving their comments.

Sometimes we think that the state of our world is beyond repair and wonder where we are headed and if it’s really worth the effort.

This award has renovated our desire to continue and to try to make a difference. 

BlackBor

~~IN HER OWN WORDS~~ 

I have designed this award because so many feel they can’t change the world. They can. You can. Your words, your blog can educate, raise awareness, change opinions and raise spirits. Through your blog you are reaching people you may never have effected any other way.

So this is for all who click away on the computer with a heart full of love, kindness, compassion and caring. For all of you who write to correct wrongs and injustices. For all of you who work to bring light into our world and hope to people’s lives. You are all heroes in my book.

Please accept this heart-felt award and pass it on to those in your WordPress family who deserve it. Let’s keep it going for the entire year. May it inspire all with light, words, and love for the human family.

You all know how much I hate rules, so please just

*post the award on your blog*

*thank the person who gave it to you*

*pass it on to those whom you deem worthy*

*let your nominees know*

THERE ARE REALLY NO RULES

BlackBor

JUST REMEMBER: OUR WORDS CAN CHANGE THE WORLD

BlackBor

I’m fully aware that some of you do not accept awards and that is fine.

Number One

What does it mean to be the best?
You’re beyond the pack and the rest.
Among my cousins, you’re number one,
We always talk, and have so much fun.

This title, you have clearly earned,
Over the years, from you I have learned.
Thank you for always being there,
And simply showing, how much you care.

Hope our friendship and bond only grows,
Your actions speak volumes, it really shows.
A cousin like you, I’m exceptionally proud,
You bring me sunshine, and remove every cloud.

There’s nothing better than meeting after a long time of being away. There’s a lot of comfort in knowing that time and distance do not affect the love we have in our hearts for each other. We pick up where we left off, we catch up and show lots of love. It’s as if we have always been together.  

Sharing memories …. remembering!

Cousins who haven’t seen each other for a long time. Cousins meeting for the first time.
