Important Facts

child abuseI read this article that has a list of things you can do instead of hurting a child and that cracks me up because if you CAN hurt a child then you are screwed up in the head and should seek help the minute you notice you are beginning to lose patients. If you know you are not good with children then don’t have them and if you accidentally get pregnant then there is something called adoption. I will continue to add facts as I come across them.

I have three children so I know how hard it is to be a 24/7 parent, however hitting/yelling is never the answer, all hitting/yelling does is screw the child up and makes your job as a parent harder. If you treat everyone including your children the way you want them to behave and treat others then your children act like you and treat others as you do. Kids are like little parrots, monkey see monkey do, therefore if your children are uncontrollable or are just brats then take a hard look in the mirror because these children are just mimicking their parents. Maybe we should start beating the parents for not doing there job correctly. It’s really not that hard to act the way you want to be treated and the way you want your children to act and behave towards others.

Did you know that more than 5 children die everyday as a result of child abuse?
Approximately 80% of children who die as a result of child abuse are under 4 years old.
It’s estimated that 50 to 60% of fatalities due to maltreatment are not recorded as such on death certificates.
About 30% of abused/neglected children will abuse their own children later in life.
84% of inmates were abused as children.
Over 80% of children abused are abused by someone they know (parent, caregiver, neighbor, close family friend, ect.)


Senior Drivers

Fuck you too! Get off the road you old fart before the next thing you hit is a child.
Fuck you too! Get off the road you old fart before the next thing you hit is a child.

I have been looking up car accident statistics for about a week and I find that this is a huge problem not only in Arizona but everywhere. Since there are so many baby boomers the problem is only going to get worse. I have seen a few articles on people saying that we should also be looking at teen drivers, claiming that teen drivers cause as many accidents as senior drivers, however in my search through the statistics that is not true. So if this is such a problem why isn’t anything being done about it? According to the Arizona DOT by the year 2030, older drivers are expected to account for 18.9% of all vehicles driven (HOW FUCKING SCARY IS THIS?)

So I’m sitting in the DMV today for a duplicate license (because some ass hole stole my wallet on X-mas eve, a story for another time.) When I notice this man who had to be at least 90 years old, couldn’t walk without holding onto the counters and his whole body shaking like a leaf. I’m listening to them talk and realize that this man was there to get his license. I watched as he works his way through people (clinging to people and counters as he went so as not to fall). Now this old man had to do an eye test lol, the second he got there he say’s “my eye’s are great” ha,ha well just because his eyes are great doesn’t mean he could react fast enough to any given situation, and as bad as he shakes I’m surprised he could keep the wheel straight. This old mans reflexes were shot and the fact that he was shaking uncontrollable should have been a sign that he doesn’t need his license. Low and behold this old man walked out of the DMV with his new license. HOW?

I live in Arizona, and anyone who lives here will tell you that the snowbirds are dangerous, stupid drivers. Most snowbirds are retiree’s and once snowbird season comes, watch out. These old people will turn down the wrong side of the road, the wrong side of the freeway, they will drive on and off the sidewalks, they pull out in front of you when you are doing 60 mph then they go 40 mph. Now come on you cannot tell me that the death rate for car accidents doesn’t go up when these snowbirds come our way.

This article has nothing to do with Arizona, however it does have to do with senior citizens driving. There is some great information in this article for those of you who have parents that should no longer be driving.

Sorry this is just a bitch post, if I cannot use my blog to talk about the things that bother me that why have it?

Here are links to some statistics and articles on senior drivers

Church, to go or not to go?

ChurchGrowing up I was raised as a Christian, I went to church every weekend and went to bible study on weekdays. Since growing up and coming out “so to speak” I have realized that most people in church, no matter their religion are hypocrites. How could you preach about how God love’s you and how God is all forgiving, then turn around and say that if you are gay, or if you are black or if you don’t abide by the “rules” of the bible you are going to hell. I went to this church the other day and just happened to listen to the class that was going on, the lady was telling children that they would go to hell if they didn’t abide by gods wish’s. I am sorry but if someone ever told that to one of my children I would beat the crap out of them. I do believe in a higher power but I do not believe that you will go to hell if you mess up or if you like that same sex or if you are a different color.

Church goers are always talking about helping others but what they really mean is “well help you as long as you attend our services and get brainwashed like the rest of them. Sorry people but I carry my own belief’s and I believe that everyone else should as well. So what if I don’t believe in your religion, I do believe. I think that as long as your heart is in the rite place then there’s your church, it’s better than what you will get from going to church.

Great post!

The Bottom of a Bottle

A Walk That Symbolises My Life

The morning starts I abruptly wake
Resist, fight, but I must rise
Today is a fantastic new day
Time for me to start my walk
A walk that symbolises my life

Layers of clothing I sleepily adorn
Sleepy, weary, but I must come alive
Another SoberDay has passed
A new one is beginning with this walk
A walk that symbolises my life

In to the darkness my feet do step
Tenderly, slowly, but I must find my stride
A new morning is slowly rising
Steps into the moonlight I will take on
A walk that symbolises my life

The darkness subsides as I journey
Confident, alive, but I must press on
Gracefully the sunlight spreads
My feet take a path from darkness to light on
A walk that symbolises my life

Today Cannot Be Forgotten

For the Children at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, ConnI am creating this page for all the tragedies that America has watched getting worse and worse as they go.

My 10 year old daughter asks me yesterday if she could show me a video she found on youtube and I was floored when I watched. This is an amazing and worth the watch. Beware this video may choke you up.

Chardon High School Shooting on Feb. 27th 2012

Russell King Jr
Demetrius Hewlin
Daniel Parmertor
And one other wounded

You may notice that I am not mentioning the shooters names, that is because they don’t deserve to continue to be remembered and I for one am not going to contribute to their remembrance. The only people mentioned on this place are the victims, not the monsters that caused the suffering and heart ache.

I will continue to update this page with the other violent crimes in 2012 that we have endured.

Child abuse is rising due to the economy falling

child-deaths-per-day-line_9-30-2011Alright this just pisses me off, just because your life is harder right now doesn’t mean any children should have to suffer for it. Now mind you, it is my personal opinion that child abuse is rising because of economic hardship but I have kept my eye on the child abuse rise and I truly believe it’s because parents are so stressed out that they take it out on the one’s who can’t give it back. Just because your life is harder gives you no right to abuse your children for it. They are innocent until we as parents take their innocence or let others take it by not teaching our children any better. Yea times are hard for EVERYONE right now but that is no reason for treating your children like shit. All you dumb ass parents who are going home to yell, scream, or hit your children need to remember something, these children are going to be taking care of you when you cannot anymore and I hope like hell you get the same treatment as you gave to your children.

Everyone is stressed to the max now but you have to be the adult and when you notice that you are beginning to get pissed or if you are pissed then don’t go home for an extra 10 minuted and use that time to meditate and put yourselves in the kind of mood that children deserve. It doesn’t take all that long to calm yourself, that is if you try. I really wish Anonymous would find all these parents and post their addresses online hell after all if we let the people take care of these bastards then we wouldn’t have to pay for their stay in prison and we wouldn’t have to pay to feed them. Hell life would be allot better and cheaper if we the people took care of these idiots instead of the police.

Beware of Army, Navy, Marines, and Air Force Recruiters!

Stop lying to our children to get them to serve our country.
Stop lying to our children to get them to serve our country.

My 18 year old comes home the other day saying “I’m going to join the National Guard,” I talked to a recruiter and he said that I would get paid $200.00 a day. They also said that they would pay for all of his schooling and that he would only have to join for 3 years. Yea Right… My partner did some research and found out that you only get paid for one or two days a month and your pay isn’t all that. We also found out that unless you stay enlisted for 6 years they will NOT help pay for your college. Here my son was all excited thinking it would be worth it just to help support his family and never even suspecting that the recruiters lie through their teeth to get you enrolled because they have a quota they have to hit. Bull shit, why the hell is the Government letting their enrollment officers lie to children just to hit quota. Well there are two less 18 year old’s going into the National Guard.

I believe that you shouldn’t lie to children to get them to serve our country, I don’t even think that they are old enough to see what you see when you are called into action. We found out that 85% of newly enrolled people end up getting a dishonorable discharge because they cannot hack it. Well they are still children and shouldn’t have to hack it. They treat  and talk to you like shit in training because if you can be broke they want you to break before you go to war. Bull shit, how about just being bluntly honest because if they want to serve our country then that shouldn’t change their minds. Instead they lie to get you enrolled then they beat you down mentally and physically to try to break you. Well guess what, people should be given the ability to decide for themselves if they can take it or not and the recruiter are taking their right’s to decide for themselves by lying to everyone enrolling. Excuse my french but these dumb bastards would keep more of the people they recruit if they would BE HONEST. LOL the Government being honest what a concept. I doubt that I or my children will ever see that happen in our lifetimes.

And we are so proud to say that the people in our country have freedom, my ass, if we had as much freedom as the Government want’s us to believe then they wouldn’t have to lie every time they open their mouth’s.

This weekend was for play while the kids went away!

Children Be Gone!Boy oh boy, I never thought I would know how it feels to get rid of ALL 3 kids for the whole weekend. I dropped the 2 little one’s off at Grandma’s and I didn’t figure my 18 year old would even be home this weekend. So what a surprise when he and his friend came walking in the door today. LOL we practically begged him to go to his Grandma’s and let his Dad take him to work in the morning Whhhoooaaaa yyyeeeaaa it worked.Keep in mind that me and my wife have not had one whole day without kids letalone a hole weekend in years. So I have had the whole weekend to do what I want.

LOL unfortunately I spent it sitting on my butt right here and in between  bathroom brakes I managed to clean the upstairs bathroom and sweep the downstairs. Now I know that I have no life because I revolve myself around my children so much that I forget about what I need, such as friends, a life outside of this house. However I can fix that problem now because Grandma and their Dad moved back here to Arizona so I will be getting more practice at not having kids 24/7.

It’s been so long that I don’t even know if I can make friends anymore, but I use to have thousands of friends everywhere. It seem’s that when I revolved my life around your kids, I didn’t even notice that my friends were dwindling away until the night I finally get a break, that’s when I realized that my old friends are gone and if I want to try and make more I had better take better care of the friendship no matter how much time my family takes. I personally think that my anxiety and depression comes from no life outside of my home life. Well wish me luck and maybe next time I will actually leave the house and try to make friends.

I need to get caught back up

Our World as we know itFor awhile it seemed that I couldn’t get enough of blogging. Now it seems hard to find anything to blog about. I stopped watching the news because every time I watched it just made me want to move my ass to the middle of no where, survive off the land and make my own civilization. It seems like everywhere you turn there is more destruction or no one is doing anything which is worse. I talked to my Mom the other day and she was freaking out about damn President Obama and Mitt Romney not agreeing. All my mom see’s is one of the worst depressions ever. I cannot think that we will either live or die during a major depression. I have to believe that there is more, I mean why would someone create all of this just to end it in death? No we have been here in spirit for allot longer than we have lived and I do believe we will continue to live and learn just as we have.

I have been reading allot of inspirational books lately to try and help me stay focused on me and my current surroundings so I can try and enjoy life again instead of wonder what is coming. Whatever it is, I think that after all is said and done, will eventually benefit us all. Keep your chins up. I’ll update my book reading on goodreads so you all can check them out if you’re interested. Well past my bedtime so thanks for reading me. Hopefully I will have more interesting topics to blog about next time.
