It is now a sad time here in the United States. President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order saying that refugees from certain African and Middle Eastern countries will not be allowed to enter the country and will be detained if they try and do so.

This makes me really sad, angry, and depressed. We are all immigrants one way or another in this wonderful country I call home. I understand there are some word wide terrorist groups that we have to watch out for, but what happened to letting different people from all over the world visit and maybe someday live here?

Maybe it’s just me, but I love when people from all over the world visit. I love talking with them, learning their cultures, and telling them why I love here.

All I can say is; President Trump, let these people in!

God Bless America.

Kirk Cousins and the Washington Redskins

I don’t know about you, but I’m getting sick and tired of hearing people say that Cousins should leave DC. All I am going to ask is; if he does, who do you want as his replacement? I’ve heard outrageous remarks from Tony Romo to Colt McCoy to RG3 to Nate Sudfeld.

I’m sorry, but right now Captain Kirk is the best quarterback the Redskins have had since either Jason Campbell or Patrick Ramsey or if you really want to go far back; Mark Rypien. The reason why all three left is not because they couldn’t win the big games, but because they just couldn’t stay healthy. That isn’t a problem with Kirk Cousins last time I heard and/or checked.

While Cousins may struggle at times, all quarterbacks tend to. have a bad game or two. Oh and while we are at it, let’s put some of the blame on some other players for him having a bad game or two. Oh and how about that horrible defense? That cost the Redskins a few games too.

If Cousins does leave, I will not be just angry at them for letting a really good player go, but I will laugh at them each and every time they finish below 500 for the season.

What do you think?

Why I didn’t say Merry Christmas or Happy New Year on social media.

You may find this opinion piece unpopular and that is okay. I do this blog not because I have to, but because I want to.

Now that Christmas and New Year’s have came and went, I can get this piece of information out.

Do you know why I didn’t wish anyone a Merry Christmas or a Happy New Year on social media? It’s because I have friends, colleagues, etc, that don’t celebrate either one. On the Christmas side, they either celebrate Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or they don’t even celebrate it at all. As for New Year’s, some people could either care less that it is the New Year, or help take part in Chinese New Year. Remember, the Gregorian calendar is the one you look to for New Years.

I’m not being politically correct, I’m just looking out for other people in other backgrounds who may find it offensive that we don’t include them in their celebrations.

There is a reason why we say Happy Holidays now and not just Merry Christmas.

Brief absence..

I know I haven’t written lately, but never fear, I’m still here.

My physical health is okay, and my mental health is meh.

Starting with my mental health; I have seen a therapist for the past month to two months. It helps some, but there are times I still have issues. For an example, I almost had a panic attack at work one night as one of my top leaders started asking me all these questions and every time I didn’t know an answer or gave an answer he didn’t like, he just shrugged it off. What made it worse is that he did it unexpectedly too. A few nights after that, I had an anxiety attack as I was talking to a friend about it. I was rapidly breathing, my heart was racing, and there were moments where I almost couldn’t breathe. Since then, I have had another anxiety attack, but that one I was able to calm myself down.

As for my physical health; I still have my lingering shoulder pain from when I hurt it in our softball tournament back in August. I still have a bad knee that has plagued me since high school and I know is falling apart on me. I also think I have a strained neck that has brought me down a few times at work because the pain has been bad. I also have a bigger concern. My heart has been giving me some issues at times. There are times where my beats per minute is in the 80-90 range and then all of the sudden it jumps up to near 120-130+. Not only that, my oxygen saturation level drops off and it worries me because there are times I can’t breathe.

So yeah, how are you doing?
