I don't normally get too political here but a few things have happened recently that I feel I need to rant about. If you aren't interested in my political opinion, then I suggest you might want to skip today's rant. That being said, here goes.
Canadian Sentinel brought my attention to this little gem. Maybe I am naive but I thought the purpose of the UN was to promote peace between nations. I thought they were to remain neutral kind of like the courts. I guess I was wrong. The UN has been posting information about the Israeli troops and their positions and strategic information for the world to see. How can they do that in good concience? It makes my blood boil. If they did that about American troops,for example, there would not be a safe place for them to hide. Do they feel that since it is Israel it is okay? Where is the outcry? If you want, you can read the whole article here
My next little rant involves a local newspaper reporter. I won't mention his name because I refuse to give him any publicity whatsoever. We have always been on opposite sides of an issue. For example, he has a very big hatred of our local police force. I on the other hand have had nothing but good experiences with our police force. They have always been good to me and I support them wholeheartedly. This little rant involves "Wear Red Fridays". You all know how I feel about that. I support it. I feel that while the troops may not see the public wearing red, their families do and perhaps it will bring them some comfort to know that we understand the sacrifices made by both the soldiers and their families. This reporter has taken Red Fridays and turned it into something else. He is trying to tell people that by participating in Red Friday, putting a yellow ribbon on your car, or putting yellow ribbons on the lightposts, you are not supporting the troops. What it means is that you support the war. He once again misses the point. These men and women have seen things that you and I hope we never have to see or experience. Whether you support war or not, the point is to show these people that we understand them and their sacrifices and we thank them for it. To try and turn it into something it isn't makes me crazy. I am a stubbon person by nature. This reporters little campaign will not work on me. I am more determined than ever to wear red on fridays. I hope you do too.
Thus concludes my rant for the day. Thanks for listening.

You know I hurt myself again. I get no help from anyone. My husband is mad because of the money we were spending on Physio and medication. He is angry that I couldn't do everything. He is mad because I needed crutches and I needed a brace for my knee. He is mad because when I fell again, I didn't hurt myself more. He says if I hurt myself more, maybe I could have gotten surgery then gotten it all over with. He was attentive to me when we had to spend the weekend with his family, but as soon as we got home things changed. I asked him to drive me to drop off tickets for the team for the ball game. He told me since I can walk, I can drive myself. Then he got mad at me because I tried to walk to the bank and couldn't do it. He kept making comments about how I couldn't even walk right. I am too tired to fight anymore. Tuesday, my daughter's baseball team was to go to the Goldeyes game. Her team got to go onto the field with the Goldeyes. She got her hat signed by a player and got to stand with the team for the national anthem. What should have been the happiest night of her life did not end happy. As we were leaving there was a group of twentysomethings ahead of us. They were pushing each other and goofing around. One of them, hit my daughter. He looked and laughed. Now my daughter is in tears and my husband is furious. He pushed the guy and told him to appologize to my daughter. He refused and asked my husband what his problem was. M told him exactly what the problem was and what he had done to our daughter. The guy still refused to appologize. M pushed him again. Then his friends got into it. They started yelling at my husband and now my other daughter is terrified. She is screaming and the other one is crying and they still won't say he is sorry. Finally I got M to walk away. What a way to ruin an evening. The girls couldn't sleep that night and now my daughter has a bruise and a scrape on her chest where she was hit. I should have called the cops and had him charged. Now my anxiety is through the roof. I should have done more to protect my child. I just can't do anything right. I give up.
Fade to black.
I feel like I am all alone in the world. I didn't think I was a terrible person, but apparently I am. My neighbor sure didn't like me. I was outside with my husband, we were doing the same thing the neighbor was. Trying to fight off a huge infestation of wasps. My husband said "Look, C is outside trying to do the same thing we are" I was standing beside my husband at the time. I said "It is the new form of entertainment in the neighborhood" C looked over and said " Hi, M how are you doing?" He never once acknowledged me.What the fuck did I ever do to him. I know his wife hated me. Remember when she came over to complain because my kids were fighting on the lawn? Plus, she would never speak to me. We saw her at a local restaurant on Wed. She just walked right past us. When I went up to pay, she was right beside us. She turned and walked away.
My husband has no use for me, the neighbors hate me, my cat doesn't even like me. My so called best friend will never go out of his way to help me. He swore he would be there if I ever needed him but guess what. He wasn't. When I went to hospital, I asked him to come. He refused. He always had an excuse why he could never be there if I needed him.
I felt so beat up. I just can't fight anymore. Worse yet, I don't think I care to. I think I will just let it all fade to black.
Take care all....
Here we are again. Anyone interested in learning what I did on Friday?
I tried to milk surfing on my kitchen floor.I guess I am not very good. Who knew? The twins I look after had spilled their milk on the kitchen floor. So silly me thought it would be a good idea to clean it up. As I walked over to clean it up, I slipped on it and went for a little ride. Keep in mind, the gophers already tried to punnish me. I twisted my knee even more. I landed myself in the hospital emergency room.
The bright side of it is that I only had to wait an hour as oppossed to the usual 12 hours. My doctor was very nice looking too so it wasn't all bad. I am now on heavy duty pain killers. They also gave me crutches. Let's assess this for a minute. I ended up in this mess because I cannot walk on my own two feet. The solution? Give me drugs and two more feet to deal with. Does this sound like a disaster in the making to anyone else? Too bad this didn't bump up my surgery date at all.
I hope you all had a better weekend.

loop" so you'll know what's going on in case this takes off.
- RED FRIDAYS ----- Very soon, you will see a great many people wearing Red every Friday. The reason? Canadian who support our troops used to be called the "silent majority". We are no longer silent, and are voicing our love for God, country and home in record breaking numbers. We are not organized, boisterous or over-bearing. We get no liberal media coverage on TV, to reflect our message or our opinions.Many Canadians, like you, me and all our friends, simply want to recognize that the vast majority of Canada supports our troops. Our idea of showing solidarity and support for our troops with dignity and respect starts this Friday -and continues each and every Friday until the troops all come home, sending a deafening message that.. Every red-blooded Canadian who supports our men and women afar will wear something red.By word of mouth, press, TV -- let's make the Canada on every Friday a sea of red much like a homecoming football game in the bleachers.If every one of us who loves this country will share this with acquaintances, co-workers, friends, and family. It will not be long before Canada is covered in RED and it will let our troops know the once "silent" majority is on their side more than ever, certainly more than the media lets on.The first thing a soldier says when asked "What can we do to make things better for you?" is...We need your support and your prayers.Let's get the word out and lead with class and dignity, by example; and wear something red every Friday.
- IT IS YOUR CHOICE.THEIR BLOOD RUNS RED---- SO WEAR RED! --- Lest we Forget, Lest we Forget. HAVE A GREAT DAY! * This was forwarded to me by email. Please keep it going.
I know fridays are also FUCK YOU! FRIDAYS, but please support our troops too!
