Weigh in [Saturday

Of course, I have something to say about the Paris attack.

It pains me to live in a world filled with so much hate. Where the media controls our minds and makes us believe anything.

There were plenty of other attacks in the world in the past week but the media focuses on Isis and their attack on Paris. 

My Facebook news feed is filled with Muslim hating bigots. What people have to realize is that Muslims also hates Isis. That we need to band together and hates Isis together, not Muslims. I feel terrible for the kind Muslims in the world, how people use September 11th as a reason to hate all of them.

I hate the fact that I work for the United States government. I feel as if I am literally sitting back and watching a war about to happen, just watching it unfold before my eyes, fueled by the media and the zombies who watch and believe the lies. Whether people want to believe it or not, this is yet another religious war. Christians against Muslims. Thank goodness the government can use that to their advantage.

I have friends who are Muslim. Islam is so extremely close to the Christian religion. From the Bible to the Quran. Muslims have the same ideologies as Christians, be good to others, live a good life, spread the word of our God. Of course many Christians want to believe that all Muslims live as extremist, that all Muslims are jihadi. People need to understand that this is the same thing as the Westboro Baptist Church. I don't believe that many Christians want to accept the Westboro Church as their religion. People need to educate themselves.

A terrible thing happened in Paris yesterday, and lots of people lost their lives this week. We are all the same race, the human race. We need to stand together. For Paris, for Beirut and the people affected by those bombings, for the earthquake victims in Japan,  for the bombing at the funeral in Baghdad, for all the refugees who want to escape terror but are being blamed. Pray for the world.

"This issue, of course, isn’t unique to Islam. The Ku Klux Klan burns crosses and preaches hate in the name of Jesus Christ, and the ostensibly Christian “Lord’s Resistance Army” regularly ravages villages and recruits child soldiers in Western Africa. Hindu extremists burned mosques and sparked violence in India in the 1990s. Buddhist extremists exist, and are spewing hatred in several parts of Asia. But in all of these cases, the vast majority of believers worked or are working to disavow the actions of fanatics and preserve the core, peaceful principles of their faith — just as Muslims are now doing with ISIS."

I can't help but feel like we are about to enter into World War 3. Russia has all this suspicious activity going on, US is moving mass shipments of warfare equipment across Europe, and everyone in the National Guard at my base was just forced to sign on mobilization letter, which means we're acknowledging that we could be mobilized at any point in time. Supposedly we have always had forms like this but I don't understand how I've been in this long and have never seen one. It is something that is pretty new to everyone. And I'm not going to lie, I slightly feel as if the whole Mike Brown things is a huge distraction from everyone right now. The media has certainly turned everyone against each other on the topic of race , but that is just the conspiracy theorist in me talking...

Does anyone know how to add an account on here? I have a word press blog, and I would like to add that account to my LJ so when I post to WordPress, my post will show in LJ.

Any ideas?

I'm a very big fan of Roy Lichtenstein, so I tried recreating his art in the form of a costume. I had seen it done in the past and wanted to give it a shot.

A all my fish are dying. 6 in the last two days. I'm pretty upset about it. I tested all the water levels and everything keeps coming up fine.

This is my first tank, does anyone know what it could be? If the water is fine... it's gotta be some sort of contagious disease. That's the only thing I can think.

I looked up ich, and it's a possibility, but not all the fish had white speckles.

Any thoughts?

I know I have been on an easily predicted LJ hiatus, I usually do this every few months for the past year. So yes, it's about that time again when your inbox's fill with overloads of LJ comments from me. Sorry. I just like catching up with everyone's lives.

I have friends on here who I don't really know as much as I would like, and that of course means you know just as much about me... which prompts me to want to make another "About me" update.


So here goes...Collapse )

4 day weekend. One of the few perks of being a government employee.

And even better, nothing planned except for relaxing. Yaaay.

I've opened a senior citizen home, for the canine type only.
Meet scooby and Gage.


Gage is 13. She was an owner surrender. They were moving and simply didn't want to take her. I asked why and they said "well she's 13, and she isn't breeding anymore."
They even had an appointment to put her down. I hate them.



Scooby is 9. His owner was also moving. I asked her her situation and she said she was in the run. She continued to tell me that her estranged husband beat her (it was visible) and she was living with friend to friend and was being placed in a battered womens home and she couldn't take him. She was hysterical and it made me tear up when she was hugging him and cried "this is all my fault, I'm so sorry. You'll always be my best friend."

This was one of the few times I actually felt bad. She didn't want to give him up, but had to. This doesn't happen often.

Went to see my grandma in Pennsylvania a couple weeks ago. She's cute. She's 80 something and straight out of Germany.

While we were there we visited (broke into) the grounds of Pennhurst Asylum. It was pretty creepy.

No one would go into a building. Joe, my brother and myself wanted to but weren't given enough time.

It was a place used in the 1900's for people to drop off their mentally handicapped family members. It was built in 1908 and closed in 1986 due to the staff members mistreatment to the patients. It was only built to accommodate less than 500 and housed over 2000.



While we were outside of one of the buildings... there was terrible moaning coming from inside. It happened about 4 times then stopped. Creepy.

I guess i don't understand this whole Zimmerman/Martin case.

It seems so simple.

Did the kid get into trouble in school? Maybe.

Did he have a rap sheet as long as Texas?
It's possible.

Did he have a weapon on him when he was shot and killed?
No. He didn't. He was unarmed.


In Michigan, anyone who carries their concealed pistol license knows that you don't even draw your gun on someone unless they have a weapon. Is that not a standard thing around the country?

Whether attacked or not, Zimmerman had an unfair advantage and killed a kid who didn't have a weapon. He had even notified the police of Martins suspicious activity before the scuffle took place, why not wait 5 extra minutes til authorities got there?

I hadn't gone for fire works since 2006. I must say that this year was one of the best 4th's i ever had.

Went to the store: got ribs, potatoes, Cole slaw and fruit.
Went to grandpa's with Marley.
BBQ'd for gpa and brother.
Played with sparklers with brother.
Dressed Marley up.
Headed to fire works with brother.

We got into Owosso around 9pm and walked around town a bit. By 930 Liz called and said she was there so we walked back, sparklers in hand. We stopped for ice cream (my last ice cream for awhile) and it was amazing. Went up to the court house and found Liz, who was there with her mom and brother. The five of us sat and played with sparklers until the show started.

After the show, we departed. Justin told me to light a sparkler in the truck. Even though i said no at first, i was happy he was opening up with me, so i said what the heck. I lit the sparkler, rolled the window down, and it was awesome! I let him do one and we drove down the road both with sparklers out the window.

I am pretty sure that he had a blast. I really enjoyed it too because I never get to go out with him because I am working all the time and plus it was nice for him to get out of the house. I really think he enjoyed it.

I really wanted to take Marley with me to the fireworks but I didn't want the fireworks to scare her so I left her at my grandpas. looking back I think she would have been completely fine, the fireworks weren't as loud as I expected them to be. But I am glad that she got to stay with my grandpa and play with his dogs. I know she had a good time.

Thanks every one for the Marley support! I appreciate all the thoughts!! She's doing well still.

I decided not to go through with chemo, only a small percentage live up to a year after chemo. Majority get a couple months extra after chemo. Some only a few weeks. I would rather not take my chances and put her through that. So she was given an estimate of two months. It has been almost a month exactly.

Her lymph nodes are huge, but her spirits are high. She's still happy and energetic. The prednisone was prescribed too keep the swelling down, but it only helps so much. I feel like she only has a couple weeks until they'll be too big to where she won't wanna eat... And I'll have to make my decision then.

Every day since diagnosis I've made sure we do something fun. Here's the first 5 days...

sorry for being a bad friend...

I hate the world right now. my best friend is dying and there is nothing I can do about it.

when the vet called me to give me the diagnosis, my whole world stopped.

I already figured that it was cancer, but hearing that it was 100 percent was much harder. I am a complete mess, and I am absolutely devastated.

apparently lymphoma is so fast and aggressive that most dogs only have about 2 months to live from the time they are diagnosed.

for the past few days, I have been considering all my options. my initial thoughts were that if it did come back as cancer, i would do nothing and let her live out the rest of her life with no treatment. No stress.

Then i talked to a lady all the way out in Arizona. She did pursue chemo for her dog and he lived an extra year and a half. I guess chemo for dogs doesn't have the same side effects as it does for humans, yet ironically they use the same exact medicine. In dogs, it always comes back. There is no cure.

I would feel too selfish doing chemo on her just to keep her around for an uncertain account of time. Could be a year... Could only be only three weeks after chemotherapy until the cancer comes back. I couldn't do that to her or myself for that matter.

After talking to this lady though, i found out there's still other options. There's medication i can get to control the swelling of the lymph nodes, to help her breath, eat and drink normally. Maybe prolong her life an extra month at most.

If i can keep her comfortable and happy, i will do absolutely everything in my power to do so.

We're not just going to lie down and take it.
