Everyday thing?

I’ve thought about it and I think I’m going to do it.

This is just a post saying that I will try and make this blog a daily item on my list to try and get done every day before I leave for work. Especially since there is something going on each and every day that makes me go “hmmm…”

Hopefully it works.


My take on “Decision 2016”

It’s looking more and more likely that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will receive the nominations for their respected parties.

To me, I don’t see a problem with that. Both candidates have shown that they are more than capable of running for office and you could have an election that is too close to call just like in 2000. Whether or not either one will be a good President is too early to tell. Especially with some of their ideas.

However, there are some people that can’t stand either one and are refusing to vote if it does in fact come down to the two of them. Here is what you should do if you don’t like either one:

  1. Find something that interests you. Who knows, maybe a candidate does have the same belief as you.
  2. Go to a rally. That will show you how a candidate really is.
  3. Vote. Push your friends and family to vote too. Even if it is for the independent, vote anyway.
  4. Don’t complain if your candidate doesn’t win. If you did vote, then you could make a strong case on your complaint. If you didn’t vote, you have no right to. You can only blame yourself.

I have voted in every election since I was eligible to and I always will, even if I don’t like who is running.

This election will not just determine the fate of the nation, but will determine the fate of our children see our county. Let’s get America back to where it belongs; at the top of everything.

When a famous person dies..

2016. What a year. We’ve seen so many celebrities, actors, politicians, and so many others “kick the can” already and it is only April 26th.

David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Glenn Frey, Boutros Boutros-Ghali, Rob Ford, and now Prince.

Don’t get me wrong, I have had a lot of respect for people such as Frey, Rickman, Prince, and all of the musicians, celebrities, and actors, but I feel more at a loss when a politician or someone in the military or someone in the law enforcement community passes away.

Call me a hypocrite or something like that, but it’s true. We should be mourning the loss of the ones that make our own (not just the United States) country great.

Ghali? He was a diplomat from Egypt and the Secretary-General of the United Nations.

Ford? He may have been controversial, but he made Canada right.

All the military personnel and first responders? They give their all every single day to make sure we stay safe no matter what is going on in the world. They are also there when we need them and stay with us until the event is over. Despite what some people say, I’m always thankful for the military and those that respond when there is an issue.

Those are the ones we should be more concerned about as a society, not so much a famous person. How many of them actually know that said famous person when they pass away?

Think about that before you pay your respects and change your Facebook around for “said” famous person.
