According to

When compared to girls who are sexually active with boys near their own age, these girls (those who have been sexually abused) are more likely to:

  • have multiple sex partners
  • drop out of school
  • engage in dangerous sexual behaviors
  • become pregnant
  • run away from home
  • be lured into prostitution
  • abuse drugs or alcohol
  • end up on welfare
  • be estranged from friends and family
  • be in physically abusive relationships
  • become divorced

Trust me when I say … I didn’t need to double-check these statics.  There will be women who read this, and know how true this is.  This is the profile for young girls who have been sexually abused.  Anyone you recognize?  If so … reach out to them.

Or … we can, as parents … sit down with our children … as soon as possible … and, talk with them about child predators. We can, as parents … let them know that no one has a right to touch them in private areas.  We can, as parents … let them know we are there for them … we love them … we support them … and … that … they CAN “tell someone.”  We can stop this … before it begins.

“Together, we are pulling out the weeds!”

When Did “Rich” Become A Bad Word?

I make it a habit to respect other people’s Facebook profile pages, therefore, when I see something that I don’t agree with, or that is downright upsetting … I just keep on moving.  And, I expect the same respect from others, concerning my page.  Now, that does not mean that I will not let off a little steam on MY profile.  So, here goes.

 I just read some “words of wisdom” from someone … which is, in my opinion … the worst advice one could give, but … does sum up why America is no longer a well-respected country, known for its pride in ,.. and commitment for … excellence. 

This “Life Guru” suggests there is no difference is a $5.00 bottle of wine and a $200.00 bottle of wine.  It’s just “grape juice.”  I would suggest the Guru as never had a really good $200.00+ bottle of wine.  There is most certainly a difference. 

The Guru suggests that there is no difference in a Honda or a Mercedes-Benz … both will “get you there.”  I would suggest that it isn’t just about the “destination” … it IS about how you get there, as well.   I could go on and use the modest home/mansion example (it’s all just living space to the “Guru.” … clothes …. on and on.  Trust me, there is a difference.

 What really bothered me was the “Life Guru’s” suggestion to parents to tell their children to not strive to be rich … but to be … “happy.”  My thought is … why not strive for both.

 For one thing, happiness is not reserved only for those without a lot of money.  And, “rich” can mean different things to different people.  Basically, for some, just being able to pay bills and live in a comfortable home is rich.  The one thing I don’t understand, however, is … when “rich” became such a bad thing?

 Per the “life Guru” … instead of parents encouraging their child to excel, work hard and to strive for the best life possible … to his or her ability (which also benefits the his/her children he/she brings into the world, by the way) … just do whatever “makes him/her” happy. 

 Perhaps, studying Greek history, or pottery.  The inference is one doesn’t need a lot of money to be “happy,” so why bother knocking yourself out?  Just be average, don’t strive for anything more than you need, and just … “have fun.”

 Are today’s parents seriously not encouraging their children to be the best they can be?  Are they seriously telling their children that they will never be happy driving an expensive car, having a beautiful home, and living life to the fullest??  Are they seriously saying don’t work hard just to make more because “you can’t be happy … and rich?”

 Being highly successful … personally and financially is not only about the money.  Even more importantly, it’s about feeling good about oneself.  It’s about the pride one feels when one looks around at his/her accomplishments.  It’s about one’s self-worth.  Those attributes are priceless.  But those attributes are earned, not just given.  The home, the cars, the clothes … yes … they are secondary.  They are the residuals of the hard work.  And … they can be awesome residuals!

 My point is this … instead of this “Life Guru” suggesting that parents tell the children not to strive for “rich” (whatever that is to an individual) …but to “be happy, instead.”  How about we tell how children to strive for both.  It is attainable … and a heck of a lot more rewarding.

Forbes Likes This Company For Women

Forbes is a global media company, focusing on business, investing, technology, entrepreneurship, leadership, and lifestyle.  Here is what they had to say about the awesome company for which I am an Ambassador.

“There was a huge opportunity here, a white space that could be filled. No one was telling a lifestyle story, no one was concentrating on affordable luxury, and no one was addressing a vast group of smart savvy women.” … Forbes Magazine


And … now, what I think … about that.

I love the unique and exciting woman behind this company.  I love the commissions and the bonuses, (the whole comp plan).  I love inviting ladies over, lighting a candle, sipping wine, Prosecco, whatever … the small talk … showing off the high-end quality merchandise … helping my “Hosts” achieve the rewards of hosting.

I love getting calls, with people asking me about a particular item, or my opinion on a piece of jewelry for a gift.  I love the high-tech back office.  I love the fact that there is no inventory and everything I show my guests is mine.

I love the fact that if I walked away from this business, a week later (which I would NEVER DO) … I would not have lost ONE PENNY because I still have the beautiful scarves, jewelry, and handbags that were purchased at hundreds of dollars (if not $1000.00) less that retail.  And, this is just some of the reasons I love India Hicks.

Forbes is right.  No one was addressing a vast group of smart savvy women … that is … before India Hicks.

I’m building my tribe now and if you are one smart savvy lady, that loves doing what I love … we really should talk!

Family Dance? No Thanks, I’m Sitting This One Out

Just one more way to erode the parental role of parents, in this case … the father.  Instead of “changing the name from Father-Daughter” dance to “Family” dance … how about working on emphasizing the importance of having a father … in a child’s life.

Yes, it is sad to see  someone at a “dance” without a Father with whom to dance … but … the real tragedy is that same someone doesn’t have a Father … in … her … life.

THAT is what needs to be addressed … instead of continuing the devaluation of Motherhood and Fatherhood … with a “Family” Dance.

Family dance?   How about doing a “little dance” on the head of all the deadbeat fathers who think impregnating women is sport … and makes him “a man.”

Meanwhile … for all of the responsible fathers, who understand the enormous responsibility of being a “father” … let them (and, their fortunate young daughters) … have their dance.

They Can All Make-Believe That I’m Watching

I have seen a few comments regarding a certain awards show.  I am not watching.  Actually, I haven’t watched for years.  But … NO … it isn’t because they are using their platform and notoriety to bash our President.  I would not sit through two hours of them bashing ANYONE.

 I will not sit there and watch two hours of hypocrisy.  I would not sit there watching all the bizarre outfits, or the women wearing “next-to-nothing”, showing off as much of their breasts and butt they can, while claiming to be advocates for women’s rights and demanding … “respect” … and claiming to be outraged by anything they find remotely “offensive” (although some is true).

 I have no respect for people who are blessed to live in beautiful homes (sometimes 3 or 4), drive fancy cars, vacation in exotic ports, so far removed from “regular” people, and yet, use their platform, and their notoriety to expound their political beliefs under the guise of “caring about people” at award shows.

 If they wanted to use the time for anything other than to graciously accept an award for their work … and, if they truly cared about “the people” … then why aren’t they talking about how much money they have donated to promote the cure for cancer or leukemia, or help the children at St. Jude, or help veterans who are homeless, and all homeless people, and ask everyone in the room, and watching to do the same?  Why not talk about rebuilding neighborhoods and schools?  Why? 

 Because, in my humble opinion, they …really … don’t … care.  Bashing the President and conservatives secures future work for them.  It’s all a lie.  It’s all … make-believe.

So, while they are on the stage, ranting and raving about their rights and the rights of others (that fits their views) and letting people into this country who ignore our laws and processes, and will contribute little to nothing to America … while they are gushing all over their “successes” tonight … they can make-believe that I am watching.

The Cold Stone Truth about Lady Liberty

The emotional “Statue of Liberty argument” is popping up again, due to President Trump’s temporary travel ban on people coming from seven countries known to be hotbeds of ISIS activity.  In truth … “Lady Liberty” may not be what some people think she is.  Her “warm, welcoming heart” may not be as “warm” and “welcoming” as the left would like to think, and, here is why.

The Statue of Liberty was not conceived and sculpted as a symbol of immigration. It was originally intended … from France … to the United States … as a monument to the principles of international republicanism.  It was a symbol of the alliance between France and the United States during the American Revolution.  The poem by Emma Lazarus was not a part of the original Statue of Liberty.  The poem came later … and is due to a fundraiser event.

Money was needed for the base and pedestal of the statue.  Fundraising for the additions began in 1882. The committee organized a large number of money-raising events.   As part of one such effort, an auction of art and manuscripts was included.  Poet, Emma Lazarus, was asked to donate an original work.  She wrote … and, donated the poem … “The New Colossus.”

The poem is on a tablet that is affixed to the base of the pedestal.  (It was not a part of the original stature.)  It was a donation of “art” used to raise money to pay for the base and the pedestal.

While the words are indeed, beautiful … they are not an obligation, a declaration, a law, nor a part of our Constitution, giving people (and foreign governments) the right to force their way on our soil, without going through the proper processes now in place … and, the strenuous processes to come.

To be clear … nowhere on the plaque, or in the poem, does it say, please come on in and change our culture, our religion, our patriotism … or … if you are of mind … kill us.  Nor does it, in any way, take away our rights as American Citizens, to challenge, and refuse … the influx of people deemed as a threat to our country.

And, that … is the cold stone truth about Lady Liberty.

The Inconvenience of National Security

The people who were caught traveling and then detained … were caught in the middle of President Trump’s Executive Order and a temporary travel ban.  No one was purposely detained for harassment.  It doesn’t matter who the people are … or … who they worked for … there will be people inconvenienced, if they come here without the proper paperwork and authorization, and from countries marked as hotbeds of ISIS activity.  It should be noted … this is a temporary travel ban.

People at the Boston Marathon, the twelve fatally shot days after giving the murderers a baby shower, and the innocent victims, simply enjoying a night out at a club, have been inconvenienced, as well.  Have we forgotten about them? …Don’t they matter?  Are twelve people inconvenienced at an airport because they did not prepare earlier enough for this more important?

CAIR, Clinton’s friend (their close friend) (D) Virginia Governor McAuliffe, Muslim leaders, and warm-fuzzy protesters were delighted and ready to jump on this.  These are the people that we should be upset with, and not President Trump, who is living up to his campaign promises to keep this country safe.

This is exactly what he promised to do.  He said he was going to put this in place as soon as possible, once in office.  He was voted into office, because of his campaign promises.

It is unfortunate that we are at war with ISIS and people in other countries, who have found it very easy to come into this country, previously.  It is unfortunate that so many American lives have been lost, due to the easy access of terrorists, prior to this administration.  It is unfortunate that some, from other countries may be detained and inconvenienced.

It is however, good to know that our President is keeping his promises, putting the safety of Americans first, and, just a week after being sworn into office …his policies are working.

People Have a Right to Protest – No Matter How Hypocritical

 People have a right to protest. They have a right to assemble peacefully.  Sometimes it helps to bring change.  And sometimes, it brings out the hypocrisy of people demanding center stage, and having no clue what to say and why they are really there.  That is exactly what I think of the “Women’s March” today. 

 A “war on women?”.  How misguided and hypocritical can people be!  If these people want to know what a “war on women” … truly is … they need to talk with Ayann Hirsi Ali.  This woman was caught in a “war on women” and, in comparison … it makes these fools look small and petty.

 They should read her books:

Infidel: My Life, Heretic -Why Islam Needs a Reformation Now-The Caged Virgin-Nomad: From Islam to America

 The people participating in this march have no clue what a “war on women” really is.  They have no clue why they were even there.  In fact, many were paid.

And, the irony is, these people don’t even realize that they are pawns of the Organizational leaders … from Planned Parenthood, to Gloria Steinem … that are using them to hang onto, even a shred, of relevancy.

 Yes, they have a right to protest and to assemble peacefully … no matter how misguided and hypocritical they are.  It is … after all … America.

Who the Enemies of Donald J. Trump Really Are on January 20, 2017

On January 20, 2017, Donald J. Trump will be sworn in as our 45th President of the United States.  He will be sworn in to defend America from ALL enemies, foreign and domestic.  The emphasis, today is on “domestic.”

Communism, Socialism, and Anarchism are here, in America.  The protesters you see tomorrow, they are not Patriots who love this country and feel that, somehow, we are going in the wrong direction by denying Globalism.  These are paid protestors, these are college kids indoctrinated by liberal college Professors, these are illegals, from other countries, trying to tear down America.  These are women who will cry “shock and disgust” at Donald Trump’s language, but will happily buy their children tickets to see Miley Cyrus have sex with a crucifix, Beyonce, half-dressed, shaking her butt, singing about getting laid, and the latest songs filled with violence, disrespect for women, and sexual lewdness.

America is under attack, and President Donald J. Trump has arrived in the 11th hour.  The evidence is in the protests you see tomorrow.  Know who, and what these individuals are.  Know that they have nothing to do … what-so-ever … with the preservation of America, but everything to do with the deterioration of .

I highly suggest you watch this in order to get a better understanding of what is really going on.  If we better understand it … we can stop it.
