THE CENSORS have shut down another Group

An announcement from MsLinda …
PLEASE HEED HER CALL
5:5 = Learning the Comms
Yesterday I received word that some of our voices were silenced on Social Media.
The shot fired… came from out of the blue, and without warning.
But, it wasn’t aimed at just one person in our community. It was targeted at everyone. Our comrades. Our neighbors. Our friends.
ALL of us.
It was aimed and fired at “We the People” of the United States of America. The people who were given the inalienable and Consitutional Right of the 1st Ammendment, for Freedom of Speech.
It was an attempt to mute those who will not go quietly into the good night and meddle with the most important election in American history.
An act of treason from a foreign AND domestic enemy.
There is a reason there are those who want us divided, and work tirelessly to instigate fighting from within the ranks.
A house divided against itself, cannot stand.
Divided and on our own, we are weak.
United, we are strong… especially in this Digital Battlefield!
It’s ON!
Now is the time to ROAR with a unified voice at the bullies who have crossed the line. PUSH BACK without violence while moving forward in unison. Stay steady.
Here is a brief explanation on how to cause a message or news story to go viral, (their biggest fear) but it MUST be a team effort.
Your Orders…
1) Copy and Paste this letter and send to 5 people as a private ANNOUNCEMENT. No more… just five! You don’t want to trigger warning bells.
2) Those 5 recipients do the same, and so on, and so on.
3) Follow this template with all breaking news stories. Wash and Repeat.
DO NOT SHARE ANY URL’s or identity markers as we, and others have a target on our backs. Copy and Paste Only. It is the message that is important… not the glory.
It’s that simple. Like an old fashioned Chain Letter.
Continue to seek the truth, and you will find it.
Continue to Speak the Truth, and you will be wearing the Full Armor of God.

CAN HE ANSWER ANY OF THESE QUESTIONS

with what has come out in the REAL news (msm won’t report) there are some real hard hitting questions Mr B needs to answer. All are facts of past deeds, he just need to acknowledge them.

QUESTIONS FOR JOE BIDEN:

  1. Why did members of your family keep getting lucrative business opportunities overseas while you were vice president?
  2. How did your brother, Frank, secure $45,000,000 in taxpayer loans from the Obama administration for his Caribbean projects?
  3. How did a newly-minted firm employing your other brother, James, receive a $1.5 billion contract to build homes in Iraq despite having no experience in construction or international development?
  4. Why did your son Hunter accompany you on your official trip to Beijing in December 2013? What did he do on that trip? Who did he meet with? What should the American public make of the fact that just 10 days after this trip, your son’s boutique private equity firm secured a $1 billion investment deal from the state-owned bank of China (later expanded to $1.5 billion) despite having no prior experience in China, and with this deal, the Chinese government granted your son’s firm a first-of-its-kind arrangement to operate in the the recently formed Shanghai Free-Trade Zone—a perk not granted to any of the large established financial institutions?
  5. Should the American public be concerned that your son’s private equity firm partnered with a Chinese government-owned aerospace and defense conglomerate to facilitate the purchase of an American company that produced strategically sensitive dual-use military technology that the Chinese government wanted?
  6. Does your “Build Back Better” proposal contain any provisions to ensure that American taxpayer-funded technology is not bought off by Chinese state-backed enterprises working with private equity firms like your son’s?
  7. Back in 2000, you voted in favor of giving permanent Normal Trade Relations (NTR) to China. At the time, you said that this would not lead to “the collapse of the American manufacturing economy” because China is “about the size of the Netherlands” and could not possibly become “our major economic competitor.” Furthermore, you predicted that free trade with China would establish “a path toward ever greater political and economic freedom” for the people of China. Do you still stand by these statements today after 3.4 million American jobs have been lost to China and millions of China’s citizens have been imprisoned, surveilled, disappeared, and used as slave labor by an increasingly authoritarian regime enriched by 20 years of record trade imbalances from flagrant trade violations?
  8. The People’s Republic of China has a bold plan called “Made in China 2025” to dominate the key technologies of the future in order to overtake the United States militarily and economically. Do you still contend that China is “not competition for us”?
  9. Why did you promote the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) to financial special interest groups when research was clear that the deal would make it easier for corporations to move U.S. jobs overseas?
  10. Do you believe Xi Jinping kept his promise to Barack Obama to end cyber-espionage against the United States? If not, what are you prepared to do about it?
  11. Do you accept that the coronavirus originated in China? Do you think China was honest with the world in its handling of the coronavirus? Are you satisfied with China’s explanations for how it spread? Do you believe their claims about the number of cases and fatalities in China?
  12. Do you think China should be held responsible in any way for its handling of the coronavirus? If not, why not? What, if any, repercussions should there be for China in its handling of the coronavirus?
  13. Did you suggest investigating Michael Flynn under the Logan Act, as Peter Strzok’s notes suggest?
  14. You said in your DNC acceptance speech that America is ready to “do the hard work of rooting out our systemic racism.” What did you do in your 36 years as a U.S senator and 8 years as vice president to root out systemic racism? Why didn’t it work?
  15. You have called for “revolutionary institutional changes.” What does that mean in practice?
  16. You have vowed to rescind the Trump tax cuts. Can you think of a single example of a country that recovered from a recession by raising taxes?

THAT TIME OF THE YEAR again

No, not the holidays that seem to run together back to back from HalloweenThankGivingChristmas (oh and New Years as well)

Most don’t have to deal with this till later in Life. OPEN ENROLLMENT for Medicare has begun. That is the time between Oct15 to Dec 7th ( I think)

Well I plan to stay with the medical plan I have had all last year…..JUST GET ME A NEW DOCTOR!!!! Took two and a half days to finally get a new doctor set up. They gave me several names all within my city limits (transportation can be an issue for me sometimes). I had to call these doctors to make sure if they took my plan…then wanted to ask question of them about certain issues I have but was told to get my new ID set up and then call back .

Ok, picked the lucky one to be my new doctor….had to call insurance company back…ended up talking with at least 3 different people. DO YOU KNOW YOU HAVE ANSWER the same personal question to ID yourself with each person you talk to.

One of my latest issues is the hearing aids I have…can’t get them professional cleaned until next year in Feb. So hearing the person on the cell was hard enough….yes, I tried the speaker. But even that didn’t work.

Well finally muggled through and now have a new doctor…but can’t even set up an appointment till I get the new card.

So on to the question at hand…yes I figure most would wonder why I want to change doctors. This CV19 (bs) this doc was so condescending towards me. She would belittle me for reasons I gave as to what I wanted or wouldn’t allow to have done to me. She actually screamed at me on a video chat after blood work when I told her I wouldn’t be taking the Prescription meds she insisted I take because my cholesterol # were over the top, They weren’t but maybe 5 points different from normal # of my age.( She didn’t think I knew how to read the results)

This is why I always say…Don’t Allow Doctors (any Medical persons) to use Scare tactics on you. One of my first posts dealt with medical issues I have been through. I was given the expiration of 10 years when I was born, now I will be turning 67 in 2021. I have had two life saving surgeries ( open heart and Ileostomy). I had several other surgeries in my life time. Ear Drum (both ears) and all three kids were born C section.

Have told Doctors many times ….if it has to come out and I can still function, so be it if you have to take it out…(you can live without certain organs!!) But I will NEVER allow anything to be placed INTO me (my body, not mesh, no foreign stuff, etc)

I am also (for myself only, my decision) anti-Vax and won’t take the ongoing Rx med they feel I need. Let’s try another way. I want the options, but my wants and feeling don’t seem to matter.

I have lived this long without taking any Prescriptions (the on going life long ones) so WHY THE HECK SHOULD I NOW!

If I could get away with Never seeing another doctor again, I would. But I understand I need to stay up with my Cholesterol levels . Yes I do have the fat deposits in my veins.

Though I have issues (again in old age) with my heart (again) I still want that control of how and when my medical affects me.

So, has anyone had issues with the doctors in their life?

I’ve Been NOMINATED!

No not some political or position of a company or town. It came out of the UnExpected arena we call the Internet. It is called the Liebster Award which only exists on the internet and given to bloggers by other bloggers. The earliest case of the award goes as far back as 2011. (NOW FINDING IT IS FROM GERMAN LANGUAGE0) Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.

The person who Nominated me is SHERYL of https://sherylslight.wordpress.com/

Yes the award does change your outlook and attitude in the long run. Unlike you Sherly, I didn’t wake up to the news….actual found out about it from a comment you made on one of my blog posts towards the end of the day. Here lately I have be caught up with the Election process working in the Mail In Ballot dept, starting the Early Election come next week. Also will be at the local precinct as a poll worker. So with just afew followers on my blog I will get back to nominating others once this election stuff if over and done.

Do want to answer Sherly’s questions she gave me…so here goes.~

  1. What is your favorite childhood memory? Hands down would have to be the times spent up at Lake Havasu (on the California side) My step father at the time had friends who invited us up and after awhile we would spend the weekends and vacations there (grant you, this would be a 5 hour trip from home to the lake).
  2. Why did you start blogging? I have tried my hand at it a few times in the past but just couldn’t seem to keep up due to other things in life ~mostly moving place to place And now I seem to be more settled and (like an old women) set in my ways….can do more and know how to continue
  3. Who is your favorite actor? I’m no longer having any bit of feeling the “LOVE” for them anymore….most are fake….BUT STILL HAVE SOME I really wish were still here. Fave actor who no longer is with us would be Johnny of Dirty Dancing~ Patrick Swayze
  4. What is your favorite holiday? Don’t really do much for holiday now. Kids are gone and on their own. Most can agree, the holidays are now so commercial and blend into one another you don’t know what is what. Now I don’t believe in the HALLOWEEN one as much. The only celebration of that day would have to do with my mother having her birthday that day.
  5. If you could go anywhere all expenses paid, where would you go? Well that one has already taken place. Last year my son and his wife presented me with my first Grand SON . I have other grandkids (all girls) So when he asked if I would like to come to German to spend Christmas with him, his wife and the three kids and he would pay to get me there and back.
  6. What is your favorite music? Been an OLDIES fan for years. Grew up with mostly the Bubble Gum music. Watched the Jackson Five before Michael went solo. The Osmonds before Donny became part of the group.
  7. What is your favorite food to eat? Tuna ~ you can do loads of different things with a can of tuna
  8. If you could travel to any place in the world, where would you go? SWEDEN ~ my mother’s parents are from Sweden. Would love to see the family country side.
  9. What positives have come out of the coronavirus for you? Well I am NOT sick, Don’t know anyone who actually had it. Tell you the truth, not much positives have come from this whole thing ….
  10. What would you tell your teenage self in a letter? You Will Make It To Old AGE
  11. If you could turn back time where would you go? The early mid 1970 during the period of getting out on my own and before mom died. Didn’t spend much time with her at the period due to the man she married (didn’t care for) and my learning my way around the world as an almost adult.

Well there you have it….actually could do some more post on some of these questions. I do promise to get back to the other part of this once we know the outcome of our future in NOV 2020

Speak (ing) Your Mind

How do you define “Speaking your Mind” I call it as to saying what you think about something directly.

How to speak my mind?

Be Empathetic
Stay Calm
Don’t Wait
Confront People Who Interrupt
Be Concise

And above all, don’t worry over what others think or rebut on the subject. You can speak your mind without offending others ~ or can you. Being general and not calling out by name.

Are you prone to speaking your mind…before or after you have thought it out? Is is HOW you speak your mind or do you just speak IN your mind and not VERBALIZE it?

This has been something I have had to deal with. Not much for speaking my mind most of my life, but lately have had a few thoughts go public on social media platforms. Then I get the negative and insulting comments. My general comment was I felt those who want to send back the MIB by mail are lazy. It is to much the easy way out. If you complain over the ballots possible getting lost or trashed ….then get up and take it to the county office in person. NOW IF YOU ARE OFFENDED by that, it is on you….

EXAMPLE~ so many have been complaining over the way, how and whatever on the Mail In Ballots (also the Florida Voter Registering Website has crashed and they extended the cutoff by a day) There was the same questioning and demands of knowing that their vote was excepted and counted.

MAIL IN BALLOTES (my thoughts) need to be taken to the county seat in person. This would insure that your ballot is in the place it needs to be….the election office ….and no delays or going through other steps…like your post office and mail service before getting to the office of the Election Board.

Great site for How to Speak your Mind  will elevate your confidence, you will be more resolute in your beliefs, cause people to take note.

A Forbes acritical on how to have an Opinion Without Being ‘Opinionated’ in 7 ways

Found this blog post on how not to make others feel wrong from you speaking your mind

IDEA ~How to communicate authentically without judgment so others will stay open to your thoughts? It may help to use these phrases:

I notice that…
Are you willing to…
I’m curious about…
Here’s how I’m feeling, what are you feeling?
Are you open to hearing my thoughts and feelings around this?
Here’s what I desire for our relationship…what do you want?
Are you willing to listen to my point of view, even if it may not be the same as yours?
I’m feeling disappointed or not okay with….because what’s important to me is…
I think/believe that…what do you think/believe?
What exactly did you mean by…
I just want to understand where you’re coming from, can you say more about…?

Phrases to avoid that come across as criticism and judgment, as they may cause defensiveness and affect other’s ability to be authentic with you:

You should…
You never….
You always…
Why can’t you get that….
What’s wrong with you?
Why or how can you not see that…
I’m so disappointed that you…
How could you…?
I can’t believe you…
You are so…

Another blog post of TINY BUDDHA deals close to home for me. They had a section that started like this….While I lacked the willpower to express my own ideas, I found myself in a state of annoyance and frustration from allowing others to indirectly control my life. Feeling helpless and unaware of who I really was took a toll on my mental well-being. This is still happening to this day……

a few more ways

Being assertive not rude and Speak up anyway. Leaving you with some interesting Speaking Your Mind Quotes

Well just working on this post, I have learned a lot. Now just to put it into play. Do you agree or disagree?

The Friday Four # 3

am 66 going on 67 first part of 2021, just thankful to be alive (STILL). Don’t think of turning back the clock. Improving as time goes forward. I am doing much more now than I have in years (or decades ) gone by.

Not tats for me, don’t care for the pain I have seen of others who have.

As for Halloween, no longer celebrate it. This is my remembrance of mom’s Birthday. And as for those scary movies….most are just remakes in a different light (so to speak)

Keep it alive

Rory is the host of Friday Four

** “Age is just a number…” – Okay – do you believe this and if so, what number is it, and more importantly what number are you?

There are two ways we age;

Physically and

Mentally

My physical age is 58, going on to 59. My body and it’s parts are that age and there is absolutely no use denying that. I have to look after my body considering its age and use it accordingly. Eating and exercising keeping in mind my age is very important.

As to my mental age, it all depends on how I think. If I think I’m old, I’ll feel old. If I think I’m young yet, I’ll feel accordingly. The verve and will to enjoy life, to learn new things, and being open to change are the things that keep us young. Being fixed in our way…

ETSY STORE ~ self plug

My STORE is now up and running. Am uploading loads of pictures as fast as money and time allow.

With so many of the photos I have from over the years, from Taxi driving days to everyday stuff….

Esty isn’t that hard to set up. The fact you pay a small .20cents for each upload isn’t all that bad. In my case as low (fixed) income I can’t just up load a lot at one time. I know now my account is charged on the 3rd of the month so the budgeting can be usefull.

Do check the site out and let me know what you think of it so far.

Thanks 🙂

I am SOOOO proud of myself

Always waiting till the last moment to take the online courses and assessments for being a Poll Worker. Putting off things is a flaw of mine.

Still have to take the Hands on class coming up in two days ~ see I put things off to the last moments!

There were four sections, the first took 40 minutes to watch and then a 20 question test. I passed with 100% correct. Usually get one or two wrong. And I got 100% on all 4 sections.

Not on to the Hands on class on Thurs. Guess it is just a refresher course! Also will have a hands on class come mid Oct for the Early voting. They tell me there are some differences for this process.

There was also a section in the courses for this…All common sense

My Earliest Memories

WoW, this post brought back loads of memories. Going on 67 years of life for me the second month of 2021 ( if still here and kicking) Earliest memory would be the bee sting on the bottom of my foot with the little sucker being the size of my foot ~ I was 2 yrs old.

Just remember, at that age when a boy hits you He LIKES you, You answering back with revenge, is liking him as well. Mother’s advice back then. As for those saddle shoes…hated them to! BUT I had to have special soles on them due to my pigeon toe walk .

Was the only girl in Junior High that didn’t wear a bra…nothing there to hold up ….so my mom tells me. PE class was a tragic time for me.

What ever happen to the wholesome cartoon shown only one day of the week. Most are just violent and distasteful.

Sheryl's Light

I am going to be sixty-two this coming November. I get to join the 2020 COVID birthdays. Maybe I’ll get a super cool mask as a present…I’m kinda kidding! Depends on the mask. I just had a thought about I wonder if they will put facemasks in a time capsule? Back to turning a year older.

I was going through my emails coming across my young friend Sarah’s blog LifeIsBetterInRed where she blogged about sitting down at the table for meals with your family which brought me back to when I was growing up sparking off memories of my youth; of my earliest memories.

When you grow older certain memories are etched in stone while others fade away like the fog over the mountains burn off as the sun gets hotter. That’s why family photos are so important at least to me. So let’s take a glimpse into my young…
