America has become poor in a few short years. Look at some facts. We are based on a buy this economy and only export a small amount. We have a goods and services economy, People cannot live on minimum wage. People here illegally and some citizens throw trash all along the highways because they could care less. This causes the land to be dangerous for humans and wild life.
If you live on land near many trees and dry ground, just tossing out a cigarette and injure or cause many deaths. Fires are fueled by Oxygen in the air we breath, or by fuel such as wood from trees.
If a fireman or woman is out fighting another fire, guess what? They probably cannot stop your home from burning up with all your stuff you collected over many years. Hope you have home insurance, but lives cannot be replaced.
The German people make the best cars and goods. I speak from
The only Country now in good economical shape is Germany. They work for a living and expect nothing for free. They make the best precision cars in the world, and do not cut corners. This is why they are expensive.Read More »from Why is the American Economy Bad?
America could learn a few lessons from them. I speak from experience. Americans are working themselves to death. Yet, many refuse to work at all.
I watch people because I am an artist. The grocery stores are full of children who want nothing to eat but candy. Everyone is in a hurry. For what? To spend yourselves rich?
When you give your children something they have not worked for, it usually means nothing. Think about it. Children learn by what they live with.
America is based on a buy this economy. While many have so much credit card debt and medical bills, they will not live long enough to pay off. Student loans too. Too high of interest. Too much homelessness.
Media is run by large companies. I believe America could learn a few things from Germany.
Their banks are
I have been a writer over 50 years. I try to let my readers know what I write is my personal opinion. I want them to think and become more educated for a better life.
Many years ago I finished a four year University degree at a major Texas University. I had great teachers all through the five years I studied and had enough credits for a Master's degree.Read More »from Obesity and Hope
America has become a Nation with too many people who are over weight. Lifetime good life style choices are the key. It is all very simple. I speak from experience. What you eat and drink you wear in flesh and fat. What goes in will either be used for the body's fuel or stored in fat cells.
To be a good weight for your height make sure you know what body type your frame is. This frame we inherit from our parents.
When you get up in the mornings, drink some good water and as you lay there start moving. Our bodies are made to move. Then before breakfast the most important meal of the day, exercise and shower.
If you have diabetes, learn to control your blood sugar.
Take care of your health. Sweat is a good thing. It is how the body lets go of excess water. It is dangerous if over done. This can
As a retired American Nurse, America used to have the best medical care for her people in the World, but not in the last 30 years from what i have seen. Many times Doctors and Nurses come here because of a better lifestyle but have no grasp of the culture or its language and mistakes get made and humans die.Read More »from In Defense of Old People Bad Odors
I read this article about how the elderly have bad smells. How condescending to our elders. China honors their elderly because the older humans have life experience and can teach the young ones how to live well.
Dental health is the best indicator of overall health. Dentures do cause an bad odor because of the vast amount of bacteria in a human's mouth. Many Countries cultures do not kiss anyone but their marriage partner. The reason is obvious. Saliva carries diseases and so does blood.
As humans age, their bladder muscle weakens and they are prone to infections. Use white non perfumed toilet paper and women need to wipe from the front to the back while sitting on the toilet.
Music is easy if you know the basics. I started learning music when I was about six years old.Read More »from Piano Playing
So for the past 55 or so years I have played, sang and written music.
I have had three really great teachers.
The first dedicated his life to music. His name is Doctor Brent Stratton. He had traveled all over the World with his Father who was a colonel in armed services. He never married because to teach and write classical music was his life. He is about 80 years old now. He was the minister of music for the First Christian Church in Texas. He started the first handbell choir in America and brought handbells over from England. He said I was his most gifted student and most hard to teach.
I could not stand to practice. I would just sit and stare at the piano and it frustrated me.
I play by note and by what I hear in my head. We used to call this playing by ear. I would listen to a song and then play it.
Later at one University I was taught by a former Nun named Ms. Bebb, then one
Here is a common picture in America and this has been so in many cities for about the last 60 years.Read More »from American Homes Today
In the past year I lived in two neighbor hoods where illegals took American jobs.
Contractors hire them because they believe they are saving money. The truth is from what I saw they are not communicating and doing poor work. I saw a foundation of a home that cost one American over one million dollars. Too bad he does not know that his foundation is already cracked. He does not have a trained eye and it is none of my business.
America to save a few dollars you are wasting your time. There are plenty of young strong American men and women in shelters who would love to have a job but no to them.
I have a relative that lives in a foreign Country. She laughs about all the pictures sent to America of their slums and starving babies. She said all that is just to get American money.
We have road crews picking up trash along highways from tax dollars. I say let people who do not break the
In the later part of 2010 my parents were murdered in their own home. A felon in Texas was appointed as sole care giver by a judge.Read More »from Elder Neglect
He stole most of their life savings and is free today and was never charged.
This person was so full of lies, he fooled Adult Protection and the local police department. He almost killed my daughter and got her fired from her job.
I am working to get many old Texas laws changed. Why? So this will not happen to others in the future.
I am posting their picture along with one of my Father. Adult Protection did not do their job. Compassion lost out.
My brother was evicted from their home while he was trying to protect them because of the behind the scenes felon named John.
John has caused so much misery in my family that still continues to the day.
He is free and was never charged even though he neglected them and left them alone for days at a time.
My Father who Adult Protection said was not neglected.My parents were murdered by a felon in their own home and John is still free.
One of my good friends Betty asked me what I enjoy doing the other day. After much contemplation, I knew. Reading. I enjoy Bible study , meeting new people. reading poetry , feeding wild animals. reading anew to understand Henry David Thoreau's books that taught me in my younger days to think for myself. I cannot believe what some humans do to their young. Or do not do for them.Read More »from Joy of Living
I honestly wonder why I like Thoreau's books so much. He lived in another time before computers and such. He was a naturalist. He said writers are usually poor persons. He said we work to provide a nest for self and family and food. This is what makes us human.
Humans were given dominion over animals. I saw a field recently with beautiful horses wearing blankets as a winter storm was coming. Without knowing that family I could tell he cared for his animals. I saw farms with no wind break wall for cattle. They do not care. Maybe they will learn how to be better when they get a few animal doctor bills or loose
