The Chinese ties and stuff don't bother me but selling a part of our history as a country does bother me...

The dog gone government can by some goofy bic pens for a meeting of the house and spend something totally outrageous for the ink pens that cost squat to buy, and I could have bought them myself & paid for them and delivered them for squat, compared to what they paid for 25 ink pens!!!! Tens of thousands of wasted dollars..Thats where there money is going flaunting it around like it grows on trees pay crazy expensive prices for things that should be dealt with just like we do... by what you need and don't be so bloody extravagant! Its a bloody pen for crying out loud not6 the hand of God!

Are you talking about China or America?

By the way it just irritates me that our government can be so blatantly wasteful!

I am in a bad spot as I just shipped my baby off into the military and I am really on the fence over it.. I know we all need to defend our countries ... but when it is your baby... and he just turned age to vote.. now they are going to train him to kill someone.. and take the life of another human being.. The repruccussions are horrible... He will never be the young man I raised..  again... They just take them so young... they always have.. I hate it I hate it at any age.... I am just getting to be an old bitter women when it comes to the government..

They control everything else children working discipline  which is good for the most part.. , but yet they can take a young children so impressionable and go to their schools and recruit them for killing.. and thats not abuse...  NEVERMIND.. I sent him away yesterday and it still hurts......

There's no way to avoid it Karen, every mother feels like you, trying to hold on and not let go so nothing will change. My mom is different, she's really excited about Don going into the navy, right now he's at the academy...just because they joined doesn't mean they will kill people. There's hundreds of jobs that veer from that path.

He is a mechanic and they are starting him in engineering building bridges as well as taking them out.  I hope your right .. I know all mothers feel it.. My family have a history in the service.. but it never gets easier! Thanks Ben.

If there's only one thing I'm good at, it's probably cheering people up. No problem.

YOUR WELCOME Ben.. but there will be no cutting of wrists young man.... you are too important of a human being as each of us are regardless of what our inner thoughts tell us!!
I have felt that way before but it is just us trying to give up on our selves... somtimes its just easier to give up, so we can't be lazy... we need to be strong and confident.....and believe in our own abilities no matter how hard that is!  reversible arrow
