OUR DWINDLING ECONOMY

Posted in NEWS, SOCIETY on September 8, 2009 by taralceleste

I have seen our country go through many a thing and survive. But I can’t help but notice that this is our gravest time with the economy dwindling and people suffering from money problems. Houses are being foreclosed upon and good families are losing their homes, families are sleeping in tent communities by the lakes in certain states, they are suffering as they try to provide for their families trying to keep food on the table. Some families are being laid off and unable to find new jobs, having to go on unemployment, food stamps and receive cash benefits from their states. Obama is at the very heart of this. He promised us that he would fix the unemployment crisis and instead has focused more on health care and the war. A healthcare bill is being passed that does not very well help us citizens, but instead is only being passed so that the government can make money from it. It says that it will in fact help us, but we have had bills passed like this before that eventually help only the government make money. Every state and country is suffering the crisis, but Alaska stays strong and is the only country at the moment that has many jobs and is thriving. Maybe all americans should migrate to alaska for security in life?

What the hell is with this Recession, or Depression? Whatever they’re calling it now. Everytime I drive through town to do errands in Derry NH, there’s always a foreclosure sign getting put up, or that’s been sitting there forever. I mean, I drove down the street last week by my house and I counted four in a row. Our town is going to be a frigging ghost town before we know it because of this Recession bullshit. I thought Obama was supposed to be making things better for us? It doesn’t seem like we’re getting anywhere.

I have been trying to apply to all section 8 housing programs available and almost every single one in every state is closed. Can you believe that? I was completely dumbfounded. So I’m stuck in a househould that is just pure, constant negativity, because I am a single mom trying to support my son on state assistance, since he is just so needy that he won’t stay with anyone else but me and my mother. Not to mention I can only get a job for minimum wage. That isn’t going to support us in our own apartment. So I have moved on to subsidized housing, but there isn’t much help for single moms who are struggling and trying to make a new start. That is something Obama should work on.

NADYA SULEMAN…OCTUPLETS

Posted in HISTORY, NEWS, PARENTING on February 24, 2009 by taralceleste

WHILE I BELIEVE THAT THE OCTUPLETS ARE PRECIOUS AS ARE NADYA SULEMAN’S OTHER CHILDREN, I DO NOT BELIEVE IN WHAT SHE IS DOING. I CAN’T STAND BY SOMEONE’S DECISION TO NOT ONLY BE SINGLE AND HAVE FOURTEEN CHILDREN, BUT ALSO FORGE A FAKE NAME ON THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE FOR THE FATHER, EXPECT WELFARE AND THE PUBLIC TAXPAYERS’ TO FOOT THE BILL FOR HER AND HER CHILDREN AND THEN CREATE A WEBSITE ASKING FOR DONATIONS. NOT TO MENTION HER POOR MOTHER HAVING TO BE CRAMMED WITH HER KIDS AND HER IN THAT HOUSE, PLUS HER 8 KIDS THAT WILL BE COMING HOME. THAT ISĀ  NOT A GOOD ENVIROMENT FOR THOSE KIDS, THEY NEED SPACE, THEIR OWN BEDROOMS AND A CLEAN HOME. NADYA HAS GOT THAT HOME A MESS FROM WHAT I HAVE SEEN IN PICTURES AND INTERVIEWS. I FEEL FOR HER MOTHER IN HER SITUATION. AND THIS ANGELINA JOLIE OBSESSION HAS GOTTEN WAY OUT OF HAND. I MEAN ANGELINA IS FREAKED OUT ABOUT IT AND I DON’T BLAME HER. SHE HAD PLASTIC SURGERY TO LOOK LIKE HER AND APPARENTLY SHE TRIES TO TALK LIKE HER TOO, NOT TO MENTION THERE IS SPECULATION THAT SHE BEGAN HAVING ALL THESE CHILDREN TO MIMIC ANGELINA’S LIFESTYLE. THAT IS REALLY CREEPY AND IF I WAS ANGELINA I WOULD BE REALLY WORRIED ABOUT WHAT THE NEXT STEP WOULD BE. SHE’S ALREADY TRIED TO CONTACT ANGELINA AS WELL. I FEEL THAT SINCE SHE HAD ALL THESE CHILDREN KNOWING SHE WAS SINGLE AND WITHOUT A HOME, SHE NEEDS TO FOOT THE BILL FOR HER OWN KIDS, NOT US TAXPAYERS. SHE HAS NO RIGHT TO ASK THE PUBLIC TO CARE FOR HER CHILDREN. SHE GIVES THE SINGLE PARENTS WHO NEED THE HELP DESPERATELY FROM THE STATE, A VERY BAD NAME. PARENTS LIKE ME, WHO IS UNABLE TO WORK AT THE MOMENT DUE TO MY SON UNWILLING TO STAY WITH ANYONE ELSE BECAUSE HE IS EXTREMELY FUSSY AND DOES NOT HAVE THAT NEST EGG THAT WOULD GREATLY HELP. BUT FOR PARENTS LIKE ME IT’S A SHORT TERM THING UNTIL WE GET BACK ON OUR FEET. FOR HER, IT’S A LIFESTYLE AND THAT SHOULD BE AGAINST SOME KIND OF LAW TO PROTECT TAXPAYER’S MONEY. I HAVE INCLUDED A VIDEO OF THE SUPPOSED FATHER’S INTERVIEW ON GOOD MORNING AMERICA. I THINK IT IS VERY SAD AND I FEEL FOR HIM.

BRAVE LITTLE DEER

Posted in NEWS with tags , , on September 30, 2008 by taralceleste

Meet a deer little handful called Rupert who was delivered by Caesarean section after his mother was killed by a car

He is growing up without a mother’s love. But this tiny muntjac fawn appears to have a lucky streak nonetheless.

He was born three weeks early after his mother was hit by a car.

Vets battled to save her but she died soon afterwards.

Rupert

Orphan: Muntjac fawn Rupert was delivered by Caesarean section after
his mother was killed by a car. He was just six inches tall and weighed
500 grams

Deer

Sleepy head: The male has short antlers, usually four inches or less,
and uses them to push enemies off balance so he can wound them with his
two-inch upper canine teeth. The small deer is also called the barking
deer

The little orphan, delivered by Caesarean section, was just six
inches tall and, at 500 grams, weighed little more than a bag of sugar.

It looked like he, too, would face a tough fight for survival.

But
staff at Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital in Buckinghamshire believe
Rupert, as he has been named, will make a full recovery after his
dramatic arrival.

At five days old, he is being kept in an incubator and has just opened his eyes.

Wee thing: Rupert is growing into quite a handful. The muntjac grows to
37 inches in length, and weighs between 22 and 40lbs when fully grown

Les Stocker, founder of Tiggywinkles, said: ‘Rupert’s mother had
very severe injuries. We brought him out and got him breathing and then
he went into an incubator on oxygen. He is now being fed by a tube.’

‘Deer are very, very tricky but this one has spirit. He’s an extremely feisty little guy and quite pushy,’ he added.

Muntjac
are the oldest known deer, appearing 15-35 million years ago, with
remains found in Miocene deposits in France and Germany.

First steps: An unspecified species of muntjac was introduced to the
grounds of Woburn Abbey in Bedfordshire in the 19th century by the then
Duke of Bedford

Deer

Alien species: Larger numbers of muntjac escaped from Whipsnade Zoo,
and they are the more likely ancestors, in addition to other releases

The present-day species are native to south-east Asia and can be
found from India and Sri Lanka to southern China, Taiwan, Japan and
Indonesian islands.

Reeves’s Muntjac has been introduced to England and is now common in some areas there.

Inhabiting tropical regions, the deer have no seasonal rut and mating can take place at any time of year.

However, this behaviour is retained by populations introduced to temperate countries.

Males have short antlers, which can regrow but they tend to fight for territory with their tusks.

Deer

Widespread: Muntjac colonies exist throughout England below Derbyshire,
and the population continues to grow. Small groupings of muntjacs have
been seen in large urban parks in the Islington, Highgate, East Ham,
Finchley and Greenwich areas of London

I THOUGHT THIS ARTICLE WAS VERY TOUCHING AND IT MAKES ME NOT LIKE HUNTING EVEN MORE THAN I ALREADY DO.
