Life lesson’s. It ain’t easy, life is tough.

Any person with any life experience at all should know “It ain’t easy, life is tough”. Some just can’t figure it out though and are going to be in for a very rude awaking when life get’s real for them,( youth of today, College students and “snowflakes” in mind here s9549_LifeIsTough_BLK_CRM__38446.1373400142.380.500 ).

I got my first job at around, honestly I can’t remember but it was young. My parent’s got divorced when I was 10 I believe. My Mom loaded us kids, all 4 of us into a little VW bug and drove from Connecticut to California. It was quite a shock and no doubt a learning experience to go from the Connecticut school system at the time to California’s.

We landed in Norwalk California. I went to school dressed like we did in Connecticut, nice tie and well dressed. You can imagine how that went off, not well. To add to that I had almost reached my full height of 6’2 and had a mustache. Everyone thought I was a narc and acted accordingly, lots of fun./s

After I couldn’t play football or basketball anymore do to knee and ankle problems from Nogales High school I talked my Mom into signing papers so I could join the Army at 17. Spend my whole tour in Neckarsulm Germany as a Pershing Missile crewman, another learning opportunity. At the time for the most part the people were very nice to soldiers, had a lot of racial stuff going on though on all the post’s. Germany is very beautiful and would really like to go back one day and show my wife but Europe not the safest place in the world right now, especially for Americans.

When I got out of the service I went to work for Sunny Delight, met and married my first wife there. After quitting moved on to Coca Cola, left there on not so good terms. Still can’t kick that rebellious rage against the system and I’m doing things my way, party hard nature, UPDATE: ( Forgot to mention, the memory is not so good any more. After spending almost a year in a hospital, a direct result of the hard partying I finally gave up the partying in my late twenties early thirties’. I learn the hard way, the only way, LOL.) cost me in the Army too BTW. Had a few other jobs after that and tried my hand at my own business twice. Finally got into transportation in the early 90’s working for Laidlaw for about 2 years, became a born again Christian during that time then moved on and settled into driving a city bus in Riverside California for about 17 years with a total career in transportation of 19 years.

In 2009 I had to retire early do to medical problems. Man, wasn’t expecting or planning on that,( That party hard stuff in my early years had caught up with me among other medical issues). I had planned to work there my full 20 years and then take a serious look at retirement. My plan included having all my bills paid, retirement pay and hopefully a little income from stocks I had, seling my house and moving out of California and may be getting a little part time job. It wasn’t to be though.

In 2008 I met my second and current wife, still married and happy.

Obama was president, my income was now cut more than half then what it was, the economy was was in the tank to say the least. Those Government plans Obama invented that were supposed to help struggling homeowners didn’t. I lost my house of 12 years, had to file for bankruptcy like a lot of other Americans at the time. Had to sell all my stocks and drain my savings. Hooah!

UPDATE: I forgot to mention during this time I got tagged by the IRS and the State of California about the time Conservative were being targeted by the IRS. I blogged about a couple of times back then, “Last year I stopped using HR Block because their software moved a number to the California State income tax that cost me $564 plus interest and fines on my 2008 tax return.

Of course HR Block says they are not responsible for their software.

I have just started making payments.

I used Turbotax for 2011 got a return then on March 22nd 2013 the IRS informed me a owe them $2100 and change for 2011 do on April 17th, nothing like last minute notice.” If you’re interested you can check it out here.> I am absolutely sure Obumer and the Progressive Liberal machine will fix everything. And Here.> I hate California, liberal land USA.

When I had retired my wife suggested I file for disability. I was brought up we don’t take handouts, we work. Being the proud, Christian, Conservative, Blue Collar Working American I am I refused to do it telling her the way I was raised. I tried to go back to work part time in 2012 I think it was. Thought I was feeling good enough to give it a shot but it only lasted about 3 months and the medical stuff decided to interfere again.

So, in 2015 or last year I can’t remember I decide to try and file for disability,( $1,300 and change just doesn’t get it ). I filled out all the paperwork went to their doctor’s and did everything I was supposed to do. Their doctor even agreed I couldn’t work if I remember right. I was told I didn’t qualify and was denied. I thought how can this be? I thought about appealing it then as per their suggestion talked to a lawyer, a couple of them who said they would take my case. then I finally got to get a sit down with a good lawyer I heard about and was supposed to be really good. He told me I had been out of the workforce to long so no matter what you won’t qualify. If I had listen to my wife and done it when I first retired there wouldn’t have been a problem as she reminded me the other day.

Last year after finally getting tired of paying more each year for my health care coverage since Obamacare took effect through the place I retired from. Quite by accident really, I found out I was eligible for IEHP which I guess is some sort of government health care coverage. Don’t really care, It’s not costing me anything. I also found out I’m eligible for the infamous “Obama Phone”. My 100 year old flip phone finally quit working and I was paying, actually my wife was paying a little over thirty a month for it, (sad to say $30 a month right now means a lot ). Why was she paying  for my phone? Because I pay all the other bills except for groceries. Anyways, got my “Obama Phone” which got me started on this post. I’m having some problems with the two companies involved or responsible for the program, like any government run program it doesn’t work well. I called one company and explained the situation and they told me to call the other company, I did and they directed me back to the other and they did the same thing and then I got transferred 3 times and hung up on twice not to mention having a very hard time understanding people that don’t speak english. I finally gave up. Life-is-toughMostly because of that party hard attitude when I was younger my body is falling apart at the ripe old ages of 58, most times I feel a lot older then that. I have friends and know of people that got it a lot worse then I do. I really don’t think I got it that bad at all actually, just struggle a little but the bills are paid, have a roof over my head and food on the table. No biggy really just wanted to share some life lessons in case some youngsters comes across this post. “It ain’t easy, life is tough”, not always fair get over it, 668c4be78624c1720adeb05b1c790c22 do the best you can and get on with it.

My plane now is to make it to be able to collect my Social Security and enjoy a little more income and be able do a little more, will probably take it early. I’ve read some pretty good articles making a good case for taking it early. So hopefully “Life” doesn’t decide to mess with this plan. BTW, it irks me like you wouldn’t imagine when I hear Social Security referred to as a “Entitlement”. I’ve paid into that for my whole working life like millions of Americans. It’ so supposed to be a supplement and be there for us, it’s NOT a Entitlement, we worked for it and paid for it! We shouldn’t be penalised for the government’s mismanagement and raids on the system.

Well, that’s it. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time, feel free to comment, like and share. God bless America and you.life-is-beautiful-quote-1

Sick to death of the politics of healthcare.

I’m so sick of the politics, hysteria, hypocrisy from the left and the right about this.
The Republicans screwed up by not having something ready to go after bitching about it for all theses years. They said they tried but Harry Reid blocked it all the way and I for one believed them and I’m sure he did. Sure Obama would have never signed anything they did but they should of had something ready to go.

Ted Cruz was my guy but once Mr Trump was the nominee I supported and voted for him. The more I watch and learn about him the more I support him. I truly believe he loves this country and wants what’s best for it and is willing to do what it takes. Anyone with just a little common sense or objectivity could see this. I didn’t like or vote for Obama but when he became the president I was willing to wait and see how he did thinking maybe he wouldn’t be that bad. Boy, was I wrong. Once I saw what he was doing and how he was governing I was not willing any more to give him the benefit of the doubt. The damage that man did to this country will take years to fix and it appears he’s still working on it behind the scenes but that’s another story. Eventually we will get things cleaned up. Nonetheless we made it through and we did it right and we voted to make a change. Now we have to do the same thing again. That’s how it works folks and it doesn’t happen overnight.

President Trump has always said he wanted it to be a smooth transition of Healthcare. So doing it in stages like they are talking about makes sense. I believe the CBO does have it wrong. They got it wrong on Obama care, why would they all of a sudden get it right now. The dems forced this crap on us, didn’t even try to work with anyone on it and to say they lied about would be a understatement. Pelosi,(“We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it”) and Schumer are a joke and just like the rest of left their hypocrisy knows no bounds.

I don’t know, go figure. I do know this stuff is crazy and there is no way you’re going to get the straight story from the “Lamestream Media”. Hopefully after President Trump gets things done and he continues to keep his promises like none of the other politicians have done and “Make America Great Again” we can get back to the way things are supposed to be and the government will get out of our business and just do what they are hired to do.

Let’s give it and the President a chance, it hasn’t even been 60 days yet. Get a grip people.

God bless America and you.

Looney’s on the Left, Progressivism and some headlines.

Looney’s on the Left, progressivism. You just can’t make this stuff up, makes you scratch your head and wonder in amazement. I find myself having to take more and more brakes from the news and social media just to keep my head from exploding or braking the TV.

You have to start with one of the leaders of the pack Harry Reid.  “Thousands of Americans have been adversely affected by Obamacare, and their stories are now part of the national discussion on healthcare.But according to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, they are all lying.” Read about it here. Harry Reid called on to apologize for calling suffering Americans liars

Reid: ‘All of’ the Obamacare Horror Stories Are Untrue

“Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is being hammered by Republican lawmakers after he claimed on the Senate floor that all the ObamaCare “horror stories” being circulated are untrue.” Read about it here. Reid hammered by GOP after claiming all ObamaCare ‘horror stories’ untrue

A Michigan democrat Rep. Gary Peters jumped on the bandwagon to go after another American citizen, (which this administration is good at and more then happy to do) Julie Boonstra for having the ODASITY to speak up and share how ObamaCare has effected her. “Fox News’ Megyn Kelly put forth a passionate defense of Julie Boonstra on Tuesday, ripping Rep. Gary Peters, D-Mich., for “attacking a leukemia patient.” Read about it here. Megyn Kelly rips bully congressman in passionate defense of leukemia patient

Megyn Kelly’s Epic Takedown

The “Community Organizer” and chief “Having previously appointed an entire, new legislative body, a completely new Congress, in addition to the one that is already duly elected, and then appointing himself both Senator and Member of this new House of Representatives, the President, acting as this new Congress has now written additional law, which he, as President, also approves.  The President issues this new law as an edict which states unequivocally that “…it will let people keep health insurance plans that would otherwise be out of compliance with ObamaCare for another two years…” Read about it here.

From “Best of Cain”  “We should know by now that stuff like track record and achievement are no longer even ancillary to the matter of choosing a president. They’re now completely irrelevant. The election of Obama established that, and his re-election cemented it. Democrats don’t expect Obama to get results. They expect him to protect their hold on power.” Read more about it and check out the video here. VIDEO: Fans at DNC meeting can’t name a single Hillary accomplishment

5 Things To Know About The President’s FY 2015 Budget

What did the press say about “pen and phone”? Not so unthinkable in todays world. “The ground work has already been laid, that in the event of a national  emergency, with a mere stroke of Obama’s pen this is how martial  law could play out.  This is, in part, what Justice Antonin Scalia referenced last month.”  Read more about it here.

“Someday, and it will be sooner rather than later, liberals will have to face the  cold hard truth. It will be the consequence of playing radical games and telling  blatant lies while attempting to project their hypocrisy onto others. Through  what can best be described as a vile self-hatred, liberals attempt to portray  patriotic, Christian Americans as all that’s wrong with America..”  Read more about it here.

More good reads on Progressivism.

“The Soviet Story” was a revelatory “documentary on progressivism.” In a revealing excerpt, George Bernard Shaw, the famous playwright and literary critic was filmed in the early 1930s openly defending Hitler, mass murder and genocidal eugenics. The documentary explains liberals’ love affair with fascism, saying: The left supported Hitler not because he deceived them. They knew Hitler would kill. He said he would. In fact, it was why they supported him.The progressive movement has always been filled with socialist and liberal intellectuals who love to praise depraved tyrants like Mussolini, Lenin, Stalin and Hitler as men of action who, unlike the bureaucrats in our democracies, could get things done.” Read more about it here. The Liberal-Fascist Axisabout

“There isn’t very much progress in the progressive movement. Progress is the  expansion of possibilities. Progressives however have a Malthusian obsession  with the scarcity of all things. They believe that we are about to run out of  everything from energy to water to wealth and education and that like starving  survivors on a lifeboat we have to redistribute everything.”

The  progressive outlook predates the notion of progress. Its ideal is a static  society, sustainable in its material practices and so utterly moral in its  social attributes that it becomes immune to change. It is founded on the  intertwining of the material and the moral through the insistence that the  scarcity of material things makes their redistribution mandatory by an activist  moral elite.”  Read more about it here. Progressives Without Progress

An excellent and eye opening read. “Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa was the highest-ranking Soviet bloc intelligence official ever to defect to the West. He exposed the massive crimes and corruption of his former boss, Romanian President Nicolae Ceauescu, giving the dictator a nervous breakdown and prompting him to post two different million-dollar bounties on Pacepa’s head and send assassination squads to the U.S. to find his former spy chief and kill him. Pacepa, at 85, today lives in the U.S. as a “proud American citizen.” Read more about it here. U.S. progressives ‘concealing the road to Marxism,’ says top defector

“The average Obama voter, you know, for the most part clueless and guild ridden had no clue they were voting for the most corrupt individual to occupy the White House in U.S. History.

Notre Dame Professor on Obamacare ……

The unveiling of the dictatorial debacle that is Obama care absolutely flabbergasts me. It is stunning on so many levels, but the most shocking aspect of it for me is watching millions of free Americans stand idly by while this man, his minions in Congress, and his cheerleaders in the press systematically dismantle our Constitution, steal our money, and crush our freedoms.

The President, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid (with no small help from Justice John Roberts) take away our health care, and we allow it. They take away our insurance, and we allow it. They take away our doctors…

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Conservatives and Christians.Now “Lets Roll”.

Happy New Year and as Paul wrote to Timothy, “Grace, mercy and peace from GOD the FATHER and CHRIST JESUS our LORD”!

2 Corinthians 5:17 New King James Version (NKJV) 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

I haven’t been social much last few days. Wanted to just take a step back, forget about the news and all the “Talking Points” for a little and the weather here has been so great just wanted to get out and enjoy GOD’s handiwork for awhile. I really enjoyed and related to this mornings devotional. Don’t read everyday but most days and when I do of course GOD speaks to my heart! Check it out

“SHOW AND TELL”

“I’m NOT one to wear my faith on my sleeve. Christians can do a disservice to unbelievers by being obnoxious or judgmental.

I’m a chapel leader and have been since my second year in the minors.

People know where I I’m coming from with out my having to harp on it all the time. I know that the message of CHRIST offends because it calls sin sin and says we are all sinners.

There’s no way to soften the truth. It’s jarring and can alienate people until they begin to realize that it’s true.

My pushing it down everyone’s throat will not make it any easier for them to investigate what it’s all about.

I just tell people about GOD naturally, when opportunities arise or when I’m asked. It’s amazing how many people notice when you’re straight.

If your not a carouser, not a womanizer, not foul-mouthed, not a gossip, it get’s around!

We’re far from perfect. We fail. There are people who may think we are insincere or who think we’re judgmental.

I can’t defend myself against people who say I’m phony. Only my family, my true friends and I know who I really am inside. I’ll have to answer for that someday.

I can only do and be what I think GOD want’s me to do and be. I never want to embarrass HIM or bring HIM shame.”

Author: Orel Hershiser

I can relate to this, it  just really speaks and encourages me and is how I feel. Remember GOD didn’t make us all pastor’s, evangelists so on. He made us all different, with different gifts and callings, our job is to be as faithful as we can to what HE’s called us to do and be.

As 2013 passes and 2014 begins there is a lot ahead of us. A couple of things I hope we all remember is what a few truly Conservative and bibles believing Christians did in 2013.

A handful of true Conservative with the backing of “The People” did some pretty amazing things if you think about and took a stand against “The Status Quo”, the establishment GOP and the Progressive movement that is dead set on the “Fundamental Chang of America” and the removal of GOD from our history, remembrance and country.

“The People” stood up, stood together and backed a man for his right to say in public the TRUTH of the bible. “The People” saw that it IS possible to take a stand against the progressive’s and the liberal GOD denying democrat party and the fewer then ( being generous here) 5% of the population that is hell bent on “The fundamental Change of America”.

2013 brought to light what a lot of Conservative had been warning about for years. The I.R.S scandal, Benghazi, the massive failure of the administrations foreign polices and more often then not siding with Americas enemy’s then her allies, N.S.A., election fraud the out right lying and miss guidance of the American people and of course Obamacare.

Let’s not forget the defining silence from this administration as Christian around the world are being purged from the earth and in this country being silenced and attacked by the very government it helped set up in the begging of this great country.

2014 is the year when we can start to take our country back. It will take years to fix what the Progressives and the most recently administration has done to this country but in 2014 we can start to finish what started in 2010 but has been paused because people believed the establishment GOP and the politicians that didn’t keep there promises to defend the Constitution and Conservative values.

“If we Christians banded together and took a stand, perhaps we wouldn’t be losing so much ground in what the media is calling the “cultural war.” However, it is not a cultural war—it is a religious war against Christians and the biblical truths we stand for. Some churches have fallen into the trap of being politically correct, under the disguise of tolerance.” Read more, Franklin Graham: Duck Dynasty and the Ducking Church

So, my hope and prayer for the new year is that people will remember, pray, stand together and start on the road to bring this country back to it’s former glory and the “Light on The Hill” status that set us apart from all others lead by GOD. There is a definite choice to be maid between the GOD denying Democrats led by the Progressive movement, the GOP establishment and RINO’s and the TRUE Conservatives and bible believing Americans with respect for all.

2 Timothy 1:7 New English Translation (NET) 7 “For God did not give us a Spirit of fear but of power and love and self-control.”
