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!  www.indiahicks.com/rep/debbiebarth

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.

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.

MERYL STREEP, I DON’T NEED YOU

So, Meryl Streep said something like … without them, all we would have is football (and something else …) Well Meryl, I love football and I don’t need you, in fact … didn’t know you still made movies.

I have tried to watch some of the movies that have been released over the last few years, and the only ones that I thought had any value were American Sniper and Lone Survivor. You didn’t have as much as a cameo in either movie.

None of you can speak from the heart … you all need scripts in order to converse. It’s my opinion that most of you will sleep with a goat, if it would get you a part in a movie.

Aside from a script, I doubt if any of you read. You all talk about Trump’s foul mouth, but it doesn’t seem to stop you from wearing see-through clothes that enhance your … enhanced boobs, butts, etc., on the red carpet, or taking a starring role as sleazy con artists with foul mouths, with no regard to the message you are sending our children.

You talk about how great Socialism is and how we should “help” the poor, as you buy mansions in 3 different locations, drive $300,000 vehicles and spend more on lunch that most people make in one month. How many of you have invited illegals to come live with you? How many kids have you put through college that could not have otherwise gone to college? How many of you have “cheap” labor cleaning your pools and cleaning up after one of your drunken, pill-induced, free-for-alls?

How many of you have been in the military and served your country. How many burning houses have you ran into to save lives? How many times have you run toward gun fire, instead away from it?

In fact, seriously … what have YOU ever done for this country?

No Meryl, I really don’t need you. I happen to love football, and I do like to read … books, newspapers, journals, etc. In fact … rather than to spend my money going to movies and supporting your bad language, sleazy-looking clothes, drinking and drug problems, and your need for adulation … (you as in YOU and your movie making one-night-wonders) … I decided to buy myself a Kindle Oasis e-reader.

Seriously … I … don’t … need … you.

THE DUALITY OF JULIAN ASSANGE

As did many, I watched the Sean Hannity interview with Julian Assange, last night.  For me, it wasn’t just about the alleged Russian hack and influence on this previous election.  It was about the man, Julian Assange, himself.  It is the “duality” of the man who perplexes me.  Aside from the fact he needs a good hair-cut, I still haven’t figured him out.

Does he consider himself a force of evil or a force of good?  Does he think of himself as a journalist, the founder of what has become a powerful media force over the last ten years, a hacker, a con man … a rapist … or … an innocent man … who is trapped (by others) in a nightmare of revenge for past actions, falsely accused of rape, who is simply getting the truth to the American people?

He said, last night that only one person knew the real truth about the Wiki-leaks exposure of the John Podesta/Hillary Clinton emails.  That person is him.  And, I suppose, he is the only one that knows “who” Julian Assange is … and what drives his ambitions.

It is true that John Podesta’s emails were hacked.  Seriously … his password was “password?”  I do not condone “hacking.”  It is a despicable action, and most people would be embarrassed (probably losing some friends, a job … or a very angry spouse.)  On the other hand, these were government official’s emails, of which … Julian Assange and Wiki-leaks exposed the true ugliness and hypocrisy of politics, and politicians.  He allowed us to see the inner workings of the people who could have very well been packing-up to move to the White House.  Julian Assange confirmed everything we had always felt about the politicians we have given our trust, but had never had confirmed.

It is also true that Julian Assange exposed the emails via Wiki-leaks, but, no one is saying he was responsible for the hacking.  That dubious honor is being placed on the Russians.  To date … neither the Obama Administration, the CIA, nor the FBI has come forth with concrete evidence that Russia is responsible for the hack. (I’m not even going into the ridiculous claim that Russia “won” the election for Trump.)  Assange very clearly … several times … stated (last night) that Russia was not behind the hacking.  The faked outrage coming from the left, because many people choose to believe Assange and Wiki-leaks (with a 10 year perfect credibility reputation) over our government agencies (just look at their credibility over the last ten years) is laughable.  Our government agencies have … well-earned … our mistrust.

But … back to Julian Assange.  Not only has he been behind a treasure trove of leaks, (A Somali assignation order, Sarah Palin’s yahoo email account, military e-mail docs, etc.), Sweden wants him back in court for the alleged sexual misconduct and rape of two women.

As much as I think hacking is despicable, I can’t even begin to say how much I despise a rapist.  However … again, the proof, if any, is non-existent (or locked away, somewhere), as it is only an allegation at this point.  According to Assange, the two women involved dropped the charges years ago.  They are not accusing him of sexual misconduct, the Swedish government is.  Assange states he had already been cleared by the State Prosecutor, in Stockholm, Sweden.  He states that he has been detained illegally for the last six years.

So, who really is Julian Assange?  Will we ever know the truth?  Is he the man Sweden is trying, all these years, to prove he is?  Do we condemn him for encouraging hacks, and leaking information on an international level?  Or is he a falsely accused man, imprisoned in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London … and, a hero to be appreciated by the American people, for exposing us to the unsavory, power-greedy hypocrites, who may have become our new leaders.

And, that … is the duality of Julian Assange.

STATE EDUCATION AGENCIES ARE “PASSING THE TRASH” TO OTHER SCHOOLS

Most parents are no longer under the misconception that their children are entirely safe in schools, these days.  And, they would be right to feel this way … but, perhaps … there are even more reasons for concerns over your child’s safety, than one may know.  And, this problem may come as a huge surprise to you.

I am not talking about the bullying, or the gun-shooting incidences that are plaguing our schools.  I am talking about the teachers with whom you place your child’s safety.  Some of whom, sexually abuse your children, are caught, and, are allowed to “quietly” move on to other schools, sometimes, with a financial settlement.  It’s called … “Passing The Trash.”

According to a recent story in USA Today, written by Steve Reilly, state education agencies across the country have ignored a federal ban on signing secrecy deals with teachers suspected of abusing minors, a practice informally known as “passing the trash.”  These contracts hide details of sexual behavior and sometimes pay teachers to quit their jobs quietly.  The secrecy makes it easier for troubled teachers to find new jobs working with children.

In the most comprehensive national review of teacher discipline to date, USA TODAY examined educator misconduct and licensure databases from every state, reviewed thousands of pages of court filings and employment records and surveyed state education officials to determine how teachers who engage in misconduct remain in the education system.

The findings include a New Jersey teacher who molested five elementary school students, an Oregon substitute teacher who reached under a table to touch a student’s genitals and an Illinois teacher who forced elementary students to eat food off his crotch. In each instance, the teacher had been disciplined for sexual misbehavior in a prior school district.

I will be posting more of their findings during the week.  Below, however, is the entire story, from which I will be posting my information.

Have you had the “real” … first talk … with your young children, yet?  The talk where you let them know that no one has a right to touch them in their private areas?  The talk where you let them know that they can come to you at any time and you will listen to them … and stand by them?

If not, I urge you to do so.  It’s not going to get better for your child, once they are out of your sight.  Indeed, it is my belief; it will only get worse … IF … we don’t stop the child predators.  Together we can do this.  Together … we can start pulling out the weeds!
