From the Albuquerque Tea Party on Tax Day (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
If the Tea Party feels targeted by the IRS, then how on earth should the 48% feel?
If my memory serves me right the IRS recently gave more than 39,000 rich people a pass on criminal charges and for not paying income tax on BILLIONS. These tax-cheats got called on the carpet big time and let off the hook at the same time. I don’t remember hearing any static from the Tea Party about that. Hell, if you can evade paying taxes on millions, why would people making “kibbles & bits” be hounded about not paying taxes on a few or less thousand dollars each year? We the 48% are the ones who should be protesting, standing toe-to-toe against the Tea Party. This is ridiculous. Apparently it’s time for every group whose been targeted by the IRS, FBI and police department in America to come out and protest. …..
Why do so many women care about other people’s opinion of them, should they not answer questions that don’t concern the asking party? Don’t they know opinion’s are like the ass; everybody has one? One’s opinion is rarely based on fact and never constructed with caution. You see there’s no investment in an opinion, because it’s usually unfounded, half-baked and generated for the sole purpose of stroking the ego of the bearer. Bottom line: “don’t ask me questions about stuff that don’t concern you!” And I don’t care if you get mad when I don’t!
When a woman or anybody for that matter asks me a question that crosses the stranger, casual friend or co-worker line; one question always comes to mind. The question is; “why do you care? Really, I think to myself; is your life that tight and on track that you have time to question me about what’s going on in mine? I don’t think so! Better yet…does what I eat make you poop or; how would you knowing what I earn change how your paycheck looks? Will knowing what kind of work my husband does improve your lifestyle, if not…….why do you care?
“don’t ask me questions about stuff that don’t concern you!”
Women who wake up to just to ruin another person’s day or dip in places they should not dip chaff my butt. I say to them “please get a life and stay out of mine.” And believe me, I know misery loves company, therefore I keep myself armed at all times. When it comes to this situation I become a woman of few words. This is the one time it’s OK to answer a question with a question. The best throw-back question is: “why do you ask?”
R.I.P. Mrs. Olivette Davis… It’s 5:00 am and I’m wide awake with a message on my mind. I’m reminded of something my sister Phyllis in LA said last week. We were talking about a life changing situation and she said “Don’t try and put a question mark where God put a period.” So many times we make that mistake, especially when He comes back for those we love. It’s not everyday one can boast about having more than one mother figure in their life, at more than one given time. However, I can. God blessed me with a loving mother and more than one mother figure in my life from time to time. This weekend my heart is heavy, because it seems another has been called home and I only have one more left like her. The one called last Friday is actually my ex-mother-in-law, but she was never ex-d out in my life. In fact, it was her who was there to explain what I was experiencing when My water broke for the first time, in September of 1975 when I gave birth to my first-born. In the middle of the night I awoke unable to stop peeing….because she was right around the corner…I called her before calling mom in California. When I called her I said; “I can’t stop peeing!” She replied: “Child you water broke, I’ll be right there” That’s the kind of mother she was to everybody she knew. R.I.P. Mrs. Olivette Davis…
How do we sleep at night, knowing children suffer at the hands of those who give birth to them just as often or more than they do as a result of a strangers touch. Home grown abuser’s are a common element in family units these days. That’s an ugly reality. The silence and secrets involving child abuse inadvertently lurks in millions of seemingly normal households in these United States of America. Why can’t we stop it?
