This is not my original, but I like it!

 

“Do we use the word “POLITICS” to discribe the process so well.

 

“Poli” in Latin means “many”

and

‘Tics” meaning “bloodsucking creatures”

U.S. Government Accountability Office

Filed under: Uncategorized — Roxanne Kljucec @ 2:27 pm

I read an article on msnbc.msn.com by Andrew Taylor dated March 1,2011

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) also known as Government Watchdog did a study on government waste of billions of taxpayers dollars every year.

I shouldn’t have been in such a state of shock, but I was. I was not aware of the extreme waste and amount of our tax dollars that was involved until I read this article. Then I was angry and now I will share with you why.

Our federal government has programs, agencies, offices and initiatives within departments or government wide, that have duplicated and overlapped fragmented goals and activities to the same populations. These agencies are government missions, and consist of the agriculture, defense, economic development, energy, general government, health, homeland security, international affairs and social services. The amount of money being funded into these overlapping or fragmented programs isn’t known at this time. However, considering the amount of programs that are known this could result in tremendous savings of billions of tax payer dollars, annually.

Senator, Tom Coburn, Republican from Oklahoma is the driving force behind the study. Yes, there are politicians who want to make a difference and change things that are broken and do not work.

“Lawmakers and committees often defend programs jurisdictions as well as federal agencies. Disagreements produce gridlock, but the pressure to reduce and cut spending will test the ability of lawmakers and agencies to defend wasteful spending practices.”

We as Americans should start taking a stand against this recklessness and protest an end to the negligence that is being put upon us. This is legalized stealing from our hard earned paychecks! I phrase this so strongly because in my experience, we ask our government for help from any of the social services that we should be entitled to, and we are denied. The reason they use to turn us away is the rediculous poverty level statistics the government uses from the 1980’s!

What Do You Really Want?

Growing up I never really had any direction in my life. Most of my life I did what I thought I should be doing and lived my life not really giving it any thought. I worked a job for twenty six years and felt that after twenty one years, this wasn’t what I should be doing anymore. In the begining it was challenging and fun, when the challenge was gone I became board, stressed and I wasn’t satisfied or happy. I felt my life was so routine, there was no more passion. I allowed myself to be unhappy because I was making an excellent salary, close to six figures. One day I had a life threatening situation, it was at that point I realized what my purpose in life was.

We all have gentle nudges called instinct.  I realize when ever I ignore my instinct, I cheat or hurt myself. We need to stop following other peoples advice and live our life according to our own hearts and minds harmony. Of course there will be obstacles in our way, but I truly believe the universe supports the people who are following their destiny and passion. It is up to us to create our own happiness.

Cruelty in the Animal World

Filed under: Uncategorized — Roxanne Kljucec @ 2:48 am

I am going to write about a subject that is extremely important and sensitive to me. It is about the cruel, inhumane, horrific and senseless treatment that every animal endures at our hands. Whether it is for human consumption or for other animal’s food. Laboratory testing for cosmetics, shampoos, cleansers or medicine. For our entertainment, example being the circus and zoos. Animals from puppy mills for our pets or animals being raised for their fur for our vanity or being used for rediculous, senseless knickknacks. I am sure there are many more ways our society finds to abuse these precious animals. One other I almost forgot to mention, animal cruelty by the very people who are supposed to be responsible for them.

One of the worst situations I just witnessed today, was from a video I watched from PETA, The People of the Ethical Treatment for Animals. I am a member of this foundation that brings to light the truth and seriousness of these horrendous crimes. They hold nothing back in educating the public about the horrors these poor animals experience. The live undercover videos are extremely graphic to the point of disbelief.

My limbs went numb and I couldn’t breath from the shock that I witnessed in the video. This particular video was about the Military  trying to desensitize the soldiers for the killing of another human. They get three men together and a dog. One man holds the rear legs of this live dog and another man to hold the front legs. The third man is cutting the chest open with a long knife while the dog is screaming from the excruciating pain and torment of this heinous and sickening crime. Then he rips the heart out of this dog, passes it by every soldiers lips to get a taste of the blood. Please join in and let your voice be heard for these innocent and loving animals. I do warn you it is hard to watch! I am still shaking hours later.
