If only!!!   "A Peaceful Future!"

Last year, Google asked young artists across the US to create a doodle about what they see for the future.   Google gave their congratulations to Sarah Harrison from Connecticut in the 10th-12th grade group on being named the National Finalist of the 2016-17 Doodle 4 Google Contest for her doodle "A Peaceful Future".

Google states that it's honored to award Sarah with a $30K college scholarship and a $50K technology award for her school, as well as sharing her doodle on the Google homepage for the world to see.

See more entries here!   This gives me hope in the young folks!   And yes people...we need hope and congratulations to Sarah!

Fake News that feeds to the Right!!!

I think many "Trump Americans" believe that everything was just "peachy creamy" until that Negro Muslim from Kenya entered the White House!
Correct…or am I missing something?

People...this man is sick and not fit to be the President of the United States!!!   Wake up America!!!

I'm afraid so many Americans have been a victim of racism and "FAKE" news!!!   Below, are just a few quotes from the "Alt-right" and the so called 'Fake News' and "The Donald" that I'm aware of:
  • President Obama allegedly said..."We are no longer JUST a Christian nation"!!!   What he actually said was…"and NOW we are a nation of many religions"!!!
  • "In May 2009, President Obama dismissed our 21st annual National Day of Prayer ceremony at the White House under the ruse of "not wanting to offend anyone".   Here are the FACTS!
  • Sept. 25, 2009, a Muslim Prayer Day was held on the west front of the U.S. Capitol Building, the site where U.S. Presidents have been inaugurated since 1981.   Here are the FACTS!
  • February17-19, 2015, A Muslim prayer was recited at the start of the second day of the White House summit on “Countering Violent Extremism,” but no other religious text was presented during the portion of the event that was open to the press.   I can't find any FACTS on this one.   All of this nonsense does appear on all the Christian and/or right-wing "bat sh*t crazy" web sites.   Just google what I've underlined above and find out for yourself!
  • Former President Obama encouraged schools to teach the Quran for extra credit, while at the same time, we cannot even talk about the Bible, God, pray, or salute the American Flag.   Here are the FACTS!
  • "How refreshing and beautiful that our your First Lady, Melania Trump was in Melbourne, Florida on February 18, 2017.   Instead of the normal “pumping up” of the crowd, (immigrant) Melania chose to start the rally off with the Lord’s Prayer."   How sweet!   "Blacks for "Trump"!!!   Are you "effing" kidding me???

OK...nevermind!   "The 1st Lady gave this anti-p*ssy grabbing speech!

Aside from the 1st Lady's videos, it appears as though the source of most of this "fake news" stuff is also posted on the wacko Snopes website?   I suggest checking out for the "OTHER" facts!

I was under the impression that America was founded on religious tolerance and not on accepting just one dominant religion?   I guess I'd better go back and check out this whole Pilgrims/Plymouth Rock thing or am I missing something?   I think Pew Research is on my side on this one (via Wikipedia).

On a positive note…although it wasn't on the "National Day of Prayer"…at least "The Donald" (your president) did ask ALL of us to prey pray for Arnold Schwarenegger for improved "Apprentice" ratings during the "National Prayer Breakfast" on February 2nd!   Please ask Donald to send me an e-mail when he opens that 1st coal mine!!!

The "Russian Salad Dressing" Agenda!

Dear Ms. Ryan,
I didn’t watch yesterday’s White House press briefing but, as I’m sure you know, it’s all over MSNBC, CNN, the New York Times and other “Fake News” sources.

I was appalled at the way Sean Spicer lambasted you.   It’s not his first time!!!   I’m sure it would not have been the professional thing to do, but I wish you, and others, would have just gotten up and walked out!!!

I’ve had similar thoughts when he responds to other members of the press.   I wish they would just stand up and walk out and have others follow!   Now that would be news!   His temperament appears to be similar to his boss!

I no longer watch these press briefings on a daily basis.   When I do watch, I often change the channel to something else!   Why?   Sean Spicer!   He’s Kellyanne Conway’s twin brother!

Hang tough and next time...walk out!   You can bet that there will be a next time!!!

Respectfully yours!

One!   Zero!   Zero!   Zero!!!!

In spite of yesterday's "bitching" post, it just dawned on me that this is my one thousandth post!!!   I'm happy about my little space here on the internet and I'm glad I started this.   My inspiration back then?   It was the birth of my grandson!   He's here just over seven years now and still calls me Dude!!! spite of the "bitching", I'm happy and I'm grateful for all that I have!!!

An update from Mosul, Iraq!   A boy & his bike!

I bitch about at lot of things these days:
  • They announced we'd be on the ground at White Plains airport in 15 minutes.   Nevermind!   We're landing @ LaGuardia in 10 minutes!   But car is @ White plains and it's midnight!
  • the cable went out!   That's twice in 4 days!!!
  • the mail didn't come until 5:00PM today.   Do you believe it!
  • the long lines at the Post office!   Why am I dealing with stamps anymore?
  • the long lines at the DMV (dept. of Motor Vehicles).
  • who stole my parking space???
  • when are they gonna patch these potholes on Interstate I95???
  • the supermarket advertised Haagan-Daz ice cream, a dollar off!   Can't find it!   No more left???
  • the weatherman forecasted 50+ degrees today!   It ain't!!!
  • does anyone look up from their cell phone anymore?
  • where is my g*d-damn cellphone???
  • my age & memory capacity!   Ugh!   How old am I anyway?
  • where is the g*d-damn TV/cable remote control???
  • Then there's always the Velvetta Cheeta in the White House!!!   Ugh!!
I'm sure there are many more things that I can add to my "bitch" list.   Then I stop and take a look at the picture above and realize I need to stop bitching!   I wish I could find this boy and bring him and his bike to America!   Sorry Velvetta Chetta...but that's how I feel!
