Have to empty my head again

First I want to start by saying thanks to those you who read this blog and gave me encouragment. And to anyone who feels they want to exercise their free speech and be snarky to my comments, that’s fine. But this is my blog and I also have the right to trash your comment which I will do. If I want to be criticized, I’ll talk to my husband. LOL Kidding.

Anyway, I have lately been concerned about this whole Fed monetizing the debt…I just wish I listened and learned more in college when I took Economics. It’s only been recently with the start up of our own business and then the economic downturn, that I’ve been getting a crash course. But I can’t say I fully understand and am able to absorb the huge amount of information out there on this topic. So I’m not sure what to do.

There are those that have the survivalist attitude that think we should all be building bunkers, storing food, starting their own food garden, etc. I have never had much skill with this type of thing. Even planning for hurricanes is not all that easy for me. But is it really the same thing anyway? Planning for a hurricane really only takes a good two to three weeks worth of stuff. I wouldn’t know where to begin for some sort of huge food shortage problem. I wouldn’t really be fearful at all if I thought that there were good and honorable capitalists in charge of our government right now. It seems like the people who want power have more of a say than the people who want to make a profit. That conerns me.

Then there are those going about their lives not worried at all about this…or at least not expressing their concern. I wish I could be them. I keep trying to find information out there that will help me to stop worrying about it, but I’ve yet to see anything. Please feel free to post in comments any articles or news that would make me less worried.

And what about this lunatic George Soros? How can one man be all that powerful? Don’t get me wrong, I know there are evil people in the world and he may very well be one of them. But honestly, he’s only a man and there is no MAN on earth that really scares me that much. Men die…and this particular man is closer to that prospect due to his age. At that point he will have to answer to God and I have no doubts that he will know way better than me just what to do with this man. I don’t know, I just don’t really fear him. I do think that he could cause a lot of trouble and could cause a lot of damage to our economic system. But when have we ever allowed one flawed man to destroy millions of lives without holding him accountable eventually? Not to say I WANT disaster, but it’s not like he’s got some sort of army and is going to take over the world (cue Pinky and the Brain). Come to think of it, he is a lot like Pinky.

But this Fed does need to be stopped. I DO NOT like that they have as much power as they do. And I really think THIS may be the one big issue that brings the left and the right together. I don’t know anyone on the left that is all that thrilled with big unaccountable government agencies (well, at least ones not associated with protecting the environment and continuing the nanny state). The Fed is the epitome of what the left dispises and we all know they are working in cahoots with the evil Wall Street tycoons right? (That was snarky by the way on my part). In any case, I think there might be something here with bringing the country together to fight a common cause.

I just hope that if this crazy high inflation occurs due to the Fed’s actions, that it doesn’t happen before the holidays. I don’t relish telling my kids we won’t be having a Christmas this year.

Oh well…once again, thanks for indulging me. I know I am not a great writer and I basically write like I talk, but it is rather cathartic. This morning I woke up at around 5:30 and couldn’t get back to sleep because of thoughts like this as well as, concerned about all the stuff I have to do today to prepare for our families mini-vacation to Disney this weekend. I hate it when that happens. Writing things down does help because it’s like putting it in a box up on the shelf and I don’t need to think about it anymore. Thanks again all!

Okay, I have to vent

After the election I expected to hear nothing but crickets from my liberal friends, but instead I heard a whole slew of other things that boggled my mind. Of course this was mostly just on Facebook where I really don’t feel it’s appropriate to get into a virtual shouting match with friends and family. I really don’t appreciate it when they make snide comments to my political posts, so I don’t do it to them. But some of them had me really biting my tongue.

Most were basically about how stupid the citizens of Florida were for voting for a “felon” which is a reference to Rick Scott and then just an overall disgust with Allen West as well. Believe me it took all the power of my being to restrain from calling all opposers of Allen West RAAACIST, since for the past 2 years anyone who has opposed the current President was called just that…but I digress.

One friend actually said “it’s time to move to California”…which honestly shocked me. How could anyone who knows anything about government, economics or just LIFE, think that California is a good place to be right now? Do you not see that California is pretty much in the same state as Greece is right now? Do they not see that businesses are fleeing from California and that entitlements are in no way going to be able to be paid for…let alone distributed to the masses!?

Personally, I think if there was ever a state that should just secede from the union and start their own country it’s California. And then all the folks in Massachussets and New York could all move there…they could have their own socialist regime and live in their idea of utopia with all the unicorns and rainbows they could muster. But one thing is for sure…don’t be coming to the United States to bail you out when you inevitably fail “The Socialist Republic of California”. If you think socialism works so well, fine…have at it, but leave the rest of us free enterprise, individual liberty loving Americans ALONE!

To be completely honest, I love California as a state…it is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. Northern California has the most gorgeous weather in the world and I love that you can go to the beach and go skiing all in one state! And the people that I’ve known there are smart and creative and have so much to give to society…except so many of them have come to the idea that they are just simply ENTITLED. That they deserve all the fortune and fame they can get just because of their simple existence. Of course, that is just an observation based on their voting habits, and I know there are plenty of God fearing conservatives there too. My advice to them is “GET OUT”! It is going down, and I don’t think the odds are in your favor that you can save it.

As for Florida and our “stupidity” in voting the way we did, I really resented that sentiment. Never before had I prepared for an election the way I did for this one. I went and studied the candidates, what they believed, the kind of policies they supported and how much I thought they could manage to keep out of my life. Because to me, that is what it’s really about…do the stuff that government is supposed to do, but leave me alone! I also studied all the amendments up for vote this time and read both sides of the arguments. So to say I was stupid because I didn’t want to elect a big government, power hungry Democrat, does NOT mean I’m stupid. It just means that I care about the life I am giving to my children. The thought of them not having the same opportunities I was given literally keeps me up at night.

You know what I say to you liberals? The same type of thing you all say to me…DON’T worry, I know better what is good for you…you need your freedom…you need to be free to fail and succeed how you choose to…don’t worry, you can do it…you can actually work for a living without the government caring for you from cradle to grave. Trust me. As Rex¬†from Toy Story says “YOU’VE JUST GOT TO BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!”

This is the first political blog post I’ve ever done but I have so much more inside me that I need to get out. Thank you for indulging me this first time.
