Anonymous layaway ‘angel’ pays $50,000 for Walmart gifts.

I am so happy that there are some people in our country who will use the money they have to help others not so fortunate.   Hugs

Linda Tirado on the realities of living in bootstrap America: daily annoyances for most people are catastrophic for poor people..

I am so sorry for these people, one reason is because I have been there.  In fact recently due to my losing my job, due to my so very bad health,  I couldn’t work or earn an income.   Because of our loss of income, we couldn’t pay our electric and had it shut off.   We have no cable TV and to save money I had my phone shut off.  How would you make it today with out a phone.   I worry often about food although Ron has worked over time and even taken other shifts to make money and keep us fed.   I wanted only the tree and lights for Christmas, Ron is torn because he can’t give me much more than I have.   For me it is enough.   For him it is harder.    I don’t know how I will pay back the money I have borrowed until I get my disability because each time I think we have finally gotten ahead, something happens that puts us right back on desperation.   I am so tired of living this close to losing.   However there is no other way for us.   We have it better than some.   Better than a lot of people in many respects.   However don’t try to get me to feel bad your paying a small 16 percent tax on the millions you made this year.   Don’t complain about the taxes you paid when you bring home 150 grand and have no worries and have cars and boats and toys.    I have food and I am thankful for that.   I have friends which money can not buy and are worth more than anything.    So please read this post above and understand what it is now like for the poor in America.    The forgotten poor.    Hugs

Addicting Info – Non-Profit Report Exposes The 10 Worst Charities In America (VIDEO).

OK, here is the information on the different charities you and I want to donate to.  I have to tell you that I have been taken in and duped before.   Here are two different reports and I recommend you read each.   My wonderful brother Randy has told me he uses his computer when some one asks over the phone to quickly check up on them.   We all want to help, yet none of us wants our money to go to scam artiest.    Please check out any charity before you give them money, or you may be just throwing your hard earned money in a fire pit.   Many hugs and loves.

We the People | Center for American Progress.

This is part of the last two posts I made.  However this one has specific suggestions as to what we need to do and accomplish to protect our selves.   It is a very dangerous time for us.   Legally married gay people are being denied drivers licences in my state because the state doesn’t want to honor legal gay marriages.   It is all due to bigotry.   Imagine the state telling a straight couple they can’t get drivers licences because they have a married  name.   I plan to take Ron’s name.   I will have to fight to get my drivers licence changed.   A court battle when we have little money.   Ron wants to put me on his insurance as his spouse however for years his employer has resisted that.   I have even seen doctors refuse to honor same sex partners written and legal documents because they felt being gay was a sin before their god.   I watched them try to deny visitation and consultation to married gay people claiming they did not have to because the state did not have marriage equality.   What fight will we have to get my insurance coverage.   I am worried.   We need the federal government to step in and help.   We need the Supreme Court to make sure we have our legal right to marriage equality in all fifty states.    We need this now.   Because as we wait the ones being hurt are the gay people, gay families.   The ones fighting our having equal rights say it harms no one to wait.   Well it does harm each of us gay people , and each of OUR families.    Hugs

Another version of a very important read.   Hugs

State of LGBT Rights: Married on Sunday, but Fired…

Filed under: Bigotry, Homosexual, News, Political — Scottie @ 15:42

This is a very important read.  I did not know some of these things my self.  I have no idea how bad things are for others, but I know the struggle we fight.   I hope that people understand that the fight for our equality is far from over and needs a lot more work.   It has become more than marriage equality, it is about being treated as equal citizens and respected with out difference from others.    So it seems that our fight is going to be a long one and one we have to win.    I wonder if the straight people would agree to these things if they knew it could apply to them also.   How would they feel about this happening to them.   Please lend your voice, your talent, your blogs to creating a society where we really are all equal.   Hugs

Barton: America Must Have ‘A Biblical View On Computer Programming’ | Right Wing Watch.

The only reason I am posting this is to show how clear it is that these people want a theocracy here in the USA and they want a christian version of Sharia law.   Really they constantly complain and rail against the idea of it for other religions, they want us to bomb and fight the ones doing it over seas, yet for this country and us they want to force it on us.   Now it is clear that they want to violate all our civil rights to build their God driven country.    I am sure that others can say this better than I.    I just wanted to show how fake they really are.   Hugs

Barber And Staver: The Fight Against Gay Marriage Is ‘The Next Civil Rights Movement’ | Right Wing Watch.

Oh I love this.  They are so blind they can’t see what is so ironic and funny about what they are trying to say.   They claim that this is a civil rights fight, but not for us homosexuals.   No we are morally wrong.  They claim we are not born this way, and in no way can such a “disgusting practice” as being loving to the same sex be a civil right.   No they claim that this is a religious civil rights fight.    See even though all the arguments they try to come up with against homosexuality really do apply to their religions, they don’t see it.  You are not born religious, you learn it as you are a child, you are indoctrinated into a religion.   In fact many religions recruit, yes recruit people especially children.  They even have a saying, getting kids when they are young and they will stay in the church.    So who is really targeting the kids, who is doing the recruiting.  I get really tired of the wolf in the sheep’s clothing crying victim.  They are not the victim, they are making the rest of us the victims.   They want to take away our rights, but not just the rights of homosexuals, no they want to enshrine their own religion as the only one and use it to make everyone follow it, make laws on it only, regardless of others views.   Now tell me who is violating the civil rights of others.    Many hugs
