Letter From A Florida Teacher

This is a subject close to my heart:
Do you know that we have adult students at the school where I teach who are not US citizens and who get the PELL grant, which is a federal grant (no pay back required) plus other federal grants to go to school ?
One student from the Dominican Republic told me that she didn't want me to find a job for her after she finished my program, because she was getting housing from our housing department and she was getting a PELL grant which paid for her total tuition and books, plus money leftover. She was looking into WAIT which gives students a CREDIT CARD for gas to come to school, and into CARIBE which is a special program (check it out - I did) for immigrants and it pays for child care and all sorts of needs while they go to school or training.
The one student I just mentioned told me she was not going to be a US Citizen because she plans to return to the Dominican Republic someday and that she 'loves HER country.' I asked her if she felt guilty taking what the US is giving her and then not even bothering to become a citizen and she told me that it doesn't bother her, because that is what the money is there for! I asked the CARIBE administration about their program and if you ARE a US Citizen, you don't qualify for their program.
And all the while, I am working a full day, my son-in-law works more than 60 hours a week, and everyone in my family works and pays for our education Something is wrong here. I am sorry but after hearing they want to sing the National Anthem in Spanish - enough is enough. Nowhere did they sing it in Italian, Polish, Irish (Celtic), German or any other language because of immigration. It was written by Francis Scott Key and should be sung word for word the way it was written. The news broadcasts even gave the translation -- not even close. Sorry if this offends anyone but this is
"MY COUNTRY."
IF IT IS YOUR COUNTRY SPEAK UP -- I am not against immigration -- just come through like everyone else. Get a sponsor; have a place to lay your head; have a job; pay your taxes, live by the rules
AND LEARN THE LANGUAGE as all other immigrants have in the past -- and GOD BLESS AMERICA!
PART OF THE PROBLEM?
Think about this: If it offends someone then-- YOU'RE PART OF THE PROBLEM! It is Time for America to speak up, it is people like this that make it harder for some one like me and you to get ahead)

Fresh Veggies........






The green beans are putting on blooms











The yellow summer squash are making and I'm ready for a good pan of fried squash.......









I'm ready for some fresh slaw or steamed cabbage....aren't you?












The tomatoes, are ready for fried green tomatoes, so am I......

Yum..yum.......fresh veggies.....it's amazing how lazy people are, these days......they just don't take the time to do the good things in life, like raising vegetables.....they are so much better tasting than store bought, and better for you. These are in my garden and I really enjoy eating them.

FREEDOM ISN'T FREE.......












I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG, OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA ,
AND TO THE REPUBLIC, FOR WHICH IT STANDS, ONE NATION, UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!
















It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God. Therefore,

I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a problem

in having ‘In God! We Trust’ on our money,

and having ‘God’ in the Pledge of Allegiance.


I believe it’s time we stand up for what we believe!

LET ME SEE IF I HAVE THIS STRAIGHT:

HIS FATHER WAS A KENYAN, MOSLEM, BLACK- WE HAVE SEEN PICTURES OF HIS AFRICAN FAMILY.

HIS MOTHER IS A KANSAN, ATHIEST, WHITE-

WHERE ARE THE PICTURES OF HIS KANSAN, WHITE MOTHER AND HIS WHITE GRANDPARENTS WHO RAISED HIM ?

HIS FATHER DESERTED HIS MOTHER AND HIM WHEN HE WAS VERY YOUNG AND WENT BACK TO HIS FAMILY IN KENYA.

HIS MOTHER MARRIED AN INDONESIAN MOSLEM AND TOOK HIM TO JAKARTA WHERE HE WAS SCHOOLED IN A MOSLEM SCHOOL.

HIS MOTHER RETURNED TO HAWAII, AND HE WAS RAISED BY HIS WHITE KANSAN GRANDPARENTS.

HE LATER WENT TO THE BEST HIGH DOLLAR SCHOOLS.... HOW?

HE LIVES IN A $1.4 MILLION DOLLAR HOUSE THAT HE ACQUIRED THROUGH A DEAL WITH A WEALTHY FUND RAISER...... HOW?

HE 'WORKED' AS A CIVIL RIGHTS ACTIVIST IN CHICAGO. HE HAS NEVER HELD A PRODUCTIVE JOB. THE PRESIDENCY IS NOT A CIVIL RIGHTS POST. NOR IS IT SUBJECT TO AFFIRMATIVE ACTION SET ASIDES.

HE ENTERED POLITICS AT THE STATE LEVEL AND THEN THE NATIONAL LEVEL, WHERE HE HAS MINIMAL EXPERIENCE.

HE IS PROUD OF HIS 'AFRICAN HERITAGE', BUT IT SEEMS THAT HIS ONLY AFRICAN CONNECTION WAS THAT HIS AFRICAN FATHER GOT A WHITE GIRL PREGNANT AND DESERTED HER. I DIDN'T KNOW THAT SPERM CARRIED A 'CULTURAL' GENE.

WHERE IS THE PRIDE IN HIS WHITE CULTURE?
HE GOES TO AN 'AFROCENTRIC' CHURCH THAT HATES WHITES, HATES JEWS, AND BLAMES AMERICA FOR ALL THE WORLD'S PERCEIVED FAULTS.

AND THEN REPEATEDLY COVERS UP FOR THE PASTOR AND THE CHURCH.

HE CLAIMS THAT HE COULD NOT CONFRONT HIS PASTOR BUT HE WANTS US TO BELIEVE THAT HE CAN CONFRONT NORTH KOREA AND IRAN.... RIGHT !!!

YEAH, I THINK I SEE HOW HE COULD BE A UNITER AND BRING US TOGETHER.

I THINK THE HOPE IS THAT HE HOPES NO ONE WILL PUT THE PIECES TOGETHER !!

Half-Witt

A man owned a small farm in Kansas. The Kansas State Wage and Hour
Department claimed he was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an
agent out to interview him.

'I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them,' demanded the
agent.

'Well,' replied the farmer, 'there's my farm hand who's been with me for
three years. I pay him $200 a week plus free room and board.'

'The cook has been here for 18 months, and I pay her $150 per week plus
free room and board.'

'Then there's the half-wit who works about 18 hours every day and does
about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, pays
his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of bourbon every Saturday
night. He also sleeps with my wife occasionally.'

'That's the guy I want to talk to -- the half-wit,' says the agent.

'That would be me,' replied the farmer.

Post Turtle

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old Oklahoma rancher, whose hand was caught in a gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.
Eventually the topic got around to Barack Obama and his bid to be our President.
The old rancher said,'Well, ya know, Obama is a 'post turtle'.'
Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a 'post turtle' was.
The old rancher said, 'When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a 'post turtle'.'
The old man saw a puzzled look on the doctor's face, so he continued to explain.
'You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he is up there, and you just want to help the dumb ass get down.'

He Won't Leave

I thought for a few minutes, yesterday, that I had finally accomplished, the effort to get this person, out of the house. I was told that he couldn't take my way of doing things any longer, and as soon as he got up enough money, he was going to move......Boy, that was an easy one for him to say, since he's already got up this morning, sweetie sweet and kissing me bye, when he left for work.......... :( He hasn't kissed me for days......and now all of a sudden, he does......sucking up, is what I call it......I wish he'd stick to the plan.......I ready for it to go into effect.

Wish It Was Over

It's just about time, to get this thing over with........but, every time this person, just hangs on like a clinging vine. I told him, he needed to stop saying he was leaving and do it. He, keeps finding things to put me down or gripe at me about. So, if he's that unhappy, then he don't need to be here, end of story. I hope he gets it over with before it comes to a bitter end, it's been bad enough lately as it is. He'll sit around and pout all day, today, since we had another flare up yesterday. No new thing with him........and I'm at the point I don't care anymore......

Yuck What A Mess........

It's just too much, always having to put up with his mess. He thinks he's so great, and yet he can't even pick up after himself. He's nasty and lazy and I wish I'd never gotten into this relationship. When will I ever learn how men are? I should know better by now, as old as I am. You'd think I run the other way every time a man looked at me. This just can't be happening to me...I'm not this stupid....and yet I find more about me that I don't like.......letting some asshole guy treat me this way......I just can't get over it.

10 Things to Ponder in 2008

Number 10
Life is sexually transmitted.


Number 9
Good health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.


Number 8
Men have two emotions: Hungry and Horny. If you see him without an erection, make him a sandwich .


Number 7
Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day, teach a person to use the internet and they won't

bother you for weeks.


Number 6
Some people are like a Slinky .. Not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you

shove them down the stairs.


Number 5
Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospitals dying of nothing.


Number 4
All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to Criticism.


Number 3
Why does a slight tax increase cost you $200.00 and a substantial tax cut saves you $30.00?


Number 2
In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is Weird and people take Prozac to

make it normal.


And The Number 1 Thought For 2008 :
We know exactly where one cow with Mad-cow-disease is located among millions and millions of cows in

America but we haven't got a clue as to where millions of illegal immigrants and terrorists are located.

Maybe we should put the Department of Agriculture in charge of Immigration?


" Life is like a jar of Jalapeno peppers

What you do today, might Burn Your Ass Tomorrow!

My Outlook for Today.....

Today's Outlook: Although the Moon remains in moody Cancer today, energetic Mars finally leaves this emotional sign to roar his way into the fiery realm of Leo the Lion. We may be able to ride the wave of positive energy for the next couple of months, for Mars is happy to be back in a sign where the action is. Meanwhile, expansive Jupiter begins its retrograde phase, encouraging us to make the most of an opportunity we already have, rather than chasing new ones.
