Tells it like it is!

Please excuse the language...but this woman is PISSED...and right on the money!

Alan Simpson, Senator from Wyoming , Co-Chair of Obama's deficit commission, calls senior citizens the Greediest Generation as he compared "Social Security" to a Milk Cow with 310 million teats.

Here's a response in a letter from PATTY MYERS in Montana ... I think she is a little ticked off! She also tells it like it is!


"Hey Alan, let's get a few things straight..

1. As a career politician, you have been on the public dole for FIFTY YEARS.

2. I have been paying Social Security taxes for 48 YEARS (since I was 15 years old. I am now 63).

3 My Social Security payments, and those of millions of other Americans, were safely tucked away in an interest bearing account for decades until you political pukes decided to raid the account and give OUR money to a bunch of zero ambition losers in return for votes, thus bankrupting the system and turning Social Security into a Ponzi scheme that would have made Bernie Madoff proud..

4. Recently, just like Lucy & Charlie Brown, you and your ilk pulled the proverbial football away from millions of American seniors nearing retirement and moved the goalposts for full retirement from age 65 to age 67. NOW, you and your shill commission is proposing to move the goalposts YET AGAIN.

5. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying into Medicare from Day One, and now you morons propose to change the rules of the game. Why? Because you idiots mismanaged other parts of the economy to such an extent that you need to steal money from Medicare to pay the bills.

6. I, and millions of other Americans, have been paying income taxes our entire lives, and now you propose to increase our taxes yet again. Why? Because you incompetent bastards spent our money so profligately that you just kept on spending even after you ran out of money. Now, you come to the American taxpayers and say you need more to pay off YOUR debt. To add insult to injury, you label us "greedy" for calling "bullshit" on your incompetence. Well, Captain Bullshit, I have a few questions for YOU.

1. How much money have you earned from the American taxpayers during your pathetic 50-year political career?

2. At what age did you retire from your pathetic political career, and how much are you receiving in annual retirement benefits from the American taxpayers?

3. How much do you pay for YOUR government provided health insurance?

4. What cuts in YOUR retirement and health care benefits are you proposing in your disgusting deficit reduction proposal, or, as usual, have you exempted yourself and your political cronies?

It is you, Captain Bullshit, and your political co-conspirators called Congress who are the "greedy" ones. It is you and your fellow nutcases who have bankrupted America and stolen the American dream from millions of loyal, patriotic taxpayers. And for what? Votes. That's right, sir. You and yours have bankrupted America for the sole purpose of advancing your pathetic political careers. You know it, we know it, and you know that we know it.

And you can take that to the bank, you miserable son of a bitch.

Frankly some politicians need to remember that they work for the people. We are not here to serve them, it is supposed to be the other way around. 

The people... not the million... or billion dollar clients of the lobbyists...   I am not saying to shut down the companies... I am saying DO YOUR BLOODY JOBS! To the people that are supposed to be representing us. 

Disgusted in Wyoming!

Human Facade

I awoke this morning to find that my human facade had slipped during my time of rest. Blue skin, pale yellow eyes, lovely fangs ... all were showing. Frankly it was a relief to not have that pasty human skin stretched across my true identity.

Alas I am still in this realm, my time in this life is not yet complete. I enjoyed a moment of freedom, chuckled at the thought of how the human population would react if they saw what was actually here. I wonder how many others are stifled behind a human mask.

I stretched allowing my wings a full extension before tucking them tightly against my back. Snapped my tail too and fro, thinking of how I would like to tear this human suit to shreds and fly away.

Blast I tore the arm skin a bit, sliding back into it. Not too bad just a bit of blood and scarring. For being as fragile as it is, this skin is actually remarkable in it's resilience. Oh bother, the face is on crooked. One eyebrow is higher, ah, no that's where I tore it before and it gathered up a bit upon healing.

I am going to have to be more careful of this human skin. It does pretty well when fully on, but tearing out of it during rest times is taking it's toll.

Fangs are tucked away, human teeth in evidence. I've been grinding those down as well. Arrgh, truth be told I would love to use my fangs at times. Hehehehe...

Now for my tail, coil it up and tuck it away, and people wonder how I came to have that rounded bum.

Human facade restored...

Time for some coffee.

Forgiveness Is About Taking Care of Your Heart...

I wrote this a few days ago... and decided to go ahead and post it. 

November 12th 2011: I woke up angry and sad this morning.

Brokenhearted mourning what was lost, which may have never have actually been.

Trying to sort out what was real, and what was just another manipulation, upon manipulation.

So much pointless pain, destruction, loss, agony, over the years. A lifetime of lies and created crises. To what end?

I wonder was there any joy in this person's life at all?

Becoming sadder, angrier, and more frustrated as I struggled with the myriad tangle of emotions and deceptions coming to the conclusion that it is actually impossible to sort.

I thought about confronting this person. Not screaming (when that is truly what I feel like doing) but trying to have a conversation regarding such behaviors. Craving to hear just once, responsibility taken for one's own behaviors.

I've tried before to no avail. Said person is either unwilling or unable to accept responsibility for the words spoken, manipulations promoted, nor actions undertaken. Always there are proclamations of innocence, with showers of blame to be passed around. Never ever an acceptance of self responsibility.

I've come to realize such confrontation is pointless, leading only to more denial, manipulation, and outright lies. It is almost impossible for me to be around this person without rage boiling up from the very center of my being. Rage and love swirling around each other in a storm of conflicting boiling emotions.

When I was a child I believed every word that was said by this person. Ironically, after all that has been said and done over the years my first impulse is still to do so. The impulse to to jump in and take up this person's cause, to defend to the end still runs strong in my very soul.

Sadly, I now know (knowledge is not always a blessing) to step back and evaluate the situations as they arise. To check facts and try to stay out of the created crises and ensuing dramas. Note the try.

I have been told to cut off all association with this person, but that is not acceptable to me. This person has been in my life and me hers since my inception, and birth into this life.

There has been some joy, although even that is overshadowed by grief at this point. I do not understand the way she is, I hope she has had some joy in this life.

Her body is aged and nearing the end of it's time of functioning in this life. May she have peace as she passes on to the other side.

I am not responsible for her thoughts, words, and/or choices. Nor am I responsible for the consequences she brings upon herself.

I am, however, responsible for my own thoughts, words, and choices.

I have not now, nor have I ever, abandoned this person. I have however, had to learn some hard lessons. One being which, I can not "fix" her life. It is impossible for me to make her happy. The responsibility for her life and choices rests with her. Only she is capable of allowing happiness into her life.

This being said, she is not responsible for the rage and grief boiling within me. Only I am.

So, how do I release this typhoon of rage and grief that is tearing at my soul?

Forgive her.

How do I do that?!

Forgiveness is not an emotion, a feeling. It is a choice, a decision.

Yeah, ok... so what do I do?

Just do it! Forgiveness frees your heart from the rage and grief you have been clutching to your heart so tightly.

You mean I don't have to say or write to her to forgive her.

No, you do not. Forgiveness is not actually for the other person. It is for you. To set you free. To allow you to heal.

Ok, here goes.

I forgive you. I forgive you for intentionally and/or unintentionally hurting me.

Does this make me a great person?
No It does not... It just makes me a free person.
My heart is free to heal.

Forgiveness is about Taking care of Your Heart...

May you have peace and joy within you.

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."

— Steve Jobs

First of November...

Happy November 1st!
Halloween is done and gone.

Autumn is in full swing
The trees leaves dancing in colorful splendor

Nights are growing longer
The morning has a brisk bite of cold in the air

Winter's waiting round the corner.
Celebrate the moment...

An Autumn Leaf swirls to the ground
Bright in it's golds, reds, yellows...
A short life ... long remembered.


Life is a journey, enjoy the trip.
