We need a President who will boldly go where no President has gone before

As you all know, I have been following around Presidential Nominee Pepper. Pepper is the first bird to ever be nominated for President! Pepper has been working hard. He is hitting animal shelters, prisons, and the homeless. He is going where no Presidential candidate has ever gone and speaking to people no Presidential candidate has spoken to before. He hears their pleads and concerns and has based his campaign on them. He recently wrote this campaign speech and I hope you all enjoy it as much as the rest of us have! He has also chosen Chong as his Vice President to run with.

PEPPER CHONG

As I sit back and watch all the political hype between the news and social media, I am struck with what the Law of Attraction would call a vision moment. I have a vision of a President. I see a President that can fulfill what no other President could before. I have a list of needs this President and any politician should be ready and able to make so.

Here is my list:

  1. NOT a career politician. I find that many politician’s make a career out of running and they keep giving themselves raises. They are not in tune with what real life is. They don’t have to worry about eating or where they live. It is all given to them and with the salary they give themselves, they can enjoy the good life. No politician should be allowed to get rich on the back of the poor.
  2. Business man. Yes, definitely should be someone who knows how to run a business since part of what our country is, is a business
  3. Small business experience. Why? Because this way our politician will be interested in helping people create jobs for our citizens.
  4. Knows taxes and payroll. I know this sounds funny, but think about it a minute. This person is helping to create tax laws which will affect payroll and what is taken out of your check each time you get paid. I want someone who knows this and has experienced this as part of his/her daily life. This is a possible hardship to all Americans and should be looked at whenever you go to vote for a politician.
  5. Can budget. Come on this is big even for a CEO of a company. Look at what we owe. Trillions of dollars and it keeps growing in the negative. Would you let your school or business do this? No. So why should our government be allowed to. Social Security was set up as a pension plan for those who don’t have one and I, for one, would love to see it go back to that and not use to give some politician a golfing vacation.
  6. Foreign affairs. It would be great if all had this but really, not many do. Even career politicians don’t have this. What I mean is, someone who has done business, negotiated with, and knows the culture of each country. When you think about our trade agreements and our goods/services being fairly distributed throughout the world, we need someone who knows and can get this done.
  7. Military experience – Folks, we have to remember that the President is the Commander-in-Chief of the military. We need someone who understands and knows how to command the military during the time of peace and the time of war. We need someone with a head on their shoulders who knows that war isn’t always the first or right step. We need a skilled negotiator that can control a situation before sending in the swat team.
  8. Won’t allow lobbyists sorry companies but I think my rights should trump your right to push an unwanted item like a cancer causing vaccine (HPV) on my kids or me. It is time we get the lobbyists out of Washington and start really working for the people of this country.
  9. Will work for animal rights.  THIS IS A BIG ONE FOR ME! HOW MANY OF THE VIDEOS HAVE YOU SEEN WHERE A WORKER AT BUTTERBALL HAS RAPED A TURKEY OR A COW IS BEATEN, RAPED, AND TORTURED BEFORE BEING BEHEADED! THIS IS NUMBER ONE ON MY LIST. IF SOMEONE ISN’T AN ANIMAL ACTIVIST, I DON’T WANT YOU IN OFFICE. I DON’T CARE ABOUT YOUR DEBATE THINKING AN ANIMAL DOESN’T KNOW EMOTIONS OR FEEL. THEY DO! THEY HAVE A NERVOUS SYSTEM JUST LIKE YOU DO. THEY HAVE RED BLOOD JUST LIKE YOU DO. THEY EXPERIENCE LIFE JUST LIKE YOU DO! JUST BECAUSE A TREE BLEEDS SAP DOESN’T MEAN IT DOESN’T BLEED. SAP IS THE TREE’S BLOOD. SO BEFORE YOU GO BANGING STICKS ON A TREE, REMEMBER THAT! A TREE HAS ROOTS. IT FEEDS, DRINKS, AND FEELS FROM ITS ROOTS. WE ARE IN A RACE WAR NOT ONLY WITH OUR OWN HUMAN RACE BUT WITH EVERY LIVING RACE OF SENTIENT BEINGS ON THIS PLANET. WE ARE THE PROBLEM. WE ARE THE DESTROYERS. ANIMALS HUNT TO EAT. HUMANS HUNT FOR SPORT AND TO HANG A HEAD ON THE WALL. ANIMALS KILL THE WEAK SO THEY WON’T GET HUNTED DOWN AND KILLED BY THE ENEMY. WE KILL BECAUSE WE LIKE THE FEELING. THIS IS WHY WE HAVE SERIAL MURDERERS BECAUSE THEY LOVE THE FEELING OF KILLING. WE ARE THE PROBLEM WITH THIS PLANET NOT THE OTHER SENTIENT BEINGS, BUT US. Now I will get off my soap box about this but I want a President and Congress with the Supreme Court to really know, this is important, and it needs to be addressed properly. I want to see our Congress and President behind us in the NO KILL SHELTER movement. I think this would be wonderful to see, our President and Congress volunteering at animal shelters and giving back to communities even by serving in soup kitchens. I never see a politician go to animal shelters, prisons, or to homeless shelters when they are campaigning.
  10. Can enforce laws against any type of abuse to human, animals, plants, or water sentient lifeforms. This goes along with number 9. Nothing, I mean NOTHING, on this planet deserves to be tortured for anyone amusement. Just because humans think they are better doesn’t mean they are. Humans are destructive. Humans are mean. Humans need to get back to being peacemakers and lovers. We need to get back to respect. IF we need laws to remind people of that, then we need them. Common sense should prevail but sometimes it never does which is why we have laws that seem so comical. It is because people have forgotten common sense and humanity.
  11. Felonies. Yes we all know people who have them and some for really good reasons. But I don’t think this should be an excuse to take away your right to vote for life nor your Second Amendment rights for life. Now, hear me out. Look at all the felonies we have in this country. Is it fair that someone who commits fraud should no longer own a gun or vote? I can understand if you go in with a pistol and shoot up a 7Eleven, then I think you shouldn’t be allowed your weapon for a while but still, you should be allowed to vote. I think for Second Amendment rights it should be by the crime and once you have done your time, you should be on a list for like 7 or 10 years and if you don’t do any more crimes after that, then your right should be reinstated. We hold judgment over people even after prison which is wrong. Would you hold that same judgment on your child who just got out of time out? No. You move on and if they keep repeating the pattern you do your best to change the behavior. This is the same with prison. Some people never learn and we know this. But others do, and I think they should be given the respect they deserve. If you think about all our laws and you think about all the things that could make you a felon, then you will see what I am talking about. You could someday be in the same situation, wouldn’t you want dignity and respect once you came out? Wouldn’t you want your right to vote or have a firearm? We all would and we all should.
  12. Will work for us. Yes, for us. They are our representative in Congress or as President. We need someone who will listen. Now I understand that they need to go by what the majority of Americans want but not everyone wants the same thing. I want a President who can compromise enough to give us all what we deserve. We need a President who will look at the needs of the all and fulfill that knowing it will give everyone the opportunity they deserve in life.
  13. Will find ways to make all businesses pay a living wage in all countries. You want the truth in why your jobs are going to other countries. Here it is. Those countries pay their workers a dollar a week and force them to live at the job to make money. If the whole world made a law stating everyone makes the exact same wage, with the same benefits, and the same hours to work, then we will see less moving of factories to other countries and more people living life as they should. It could be the one move that could end world hunger.
  14. Will stand by our Ambassadors and citizens abroad. There are so many examples I could give you but I think you all know. We need someone who can send in lawyers, who can get our citizens out, or can provide healthcare when in need.
  15. Will allow immigrants who come through proper channels and will return those who come in illegally. I have no issues with anyone who is an immigrant, but I don’t think you should be allowed to stay illegally. If you want to stay, then I think you need to apply for citizenship or an extended visa. I don’t think anyone should be allowed to stay in a country illegally. No other country allows this, why should we? It isn’t about race or being an immigrant, it is about how you got here. I think this is our one saving grace if we want to stop human trafficking on this planet as well. We need all countries on board with this.
  16. Isn’t interested in hiding information from Americans but is willing to be honest and truthful about facts. I think this says it all. Look at the lies and cover ups we all keep denying is happening this election year. Trump may not be all that mature, but at least he didn’t steal from the White House nor lied about something happening when he knew it happened. He doesn’t hide his bankruptcies but has used them as learning experiences. I wish we could say the same about all our politicians.
  17. Willing to fight injustices and make a more loving, peaceful planet that is safe and abundant for all. This some will say is a fantasy, but I say it can happen. We can make a better planet if we all work together and set aside petty ideals. We all want the same thing. We all want a roof over our head, our pets, food, clothes, and most of all love. We all want our families safe. We all want to enjoy our planet and its many pleasures without worrying about being blown up. We can do this. We must do this. We have to find ways to use less and live more. We can do this as a whole planet where no one goes hungry and everyone has. It can be done. We just all need to agree on it.
  18. Respect all. This is important folks. It really is. Do you really want someone in office that just cares about him or herself? Do you want someone there who is just in it for the money and perks? Don’t you want someone who is going to help create a society where everyone is equal and no one is abused not even a bug crawling on the ground. I know, some bugs deserve to die but if we are really honest with ourselves we know, that bug has a life and it deserves to live it. I just don’t believe it deserves to live if it is destroying a tree. To that tree, that bug is a parasite. Maybe we need a vaccine against bugs for the trees? But then, even that can cause cancer and we need less cancer on this planet and more life!

Baby Baby Needs Coffee! A Nothing Episode From Da Hen House.

babybabyhidesface

Have a wonderful day while we are writing. Just a little post to let you know we are still here. We are working on stories. Baby Baby, Mr. Nose, and myself are keeping busy. We are working on part 3 of the Katie story. We have the book we are working on plus we are working on a fantasy story for fantasy Friday and a mystery for Monday.  Not sure if we will have them done for this week but you will know as soon as they get up.

20229122404_d1914dd286_m

We have been brainstorming on how to make extra cash here on the farm. We were thinking about have a meet the chickens coffee day! We are thinking about having a petting zoo. We are thinking about having an egg day hunt where you can pretend it is Easter and look for eggs around the yard. Could even get out the tractor and wagon for hay rides!

Who needs cats when a rooster will do?
Who needs cats when a rooster will do?

This young rooster is competing with the cats! He is mousing. I had to get a picture of him out mouse hunting.

Found out I won’t be going back to work as soon as I thought. Looks like more problems with the liver and pancreas. That means I keep selling eggs and finding other ways to make money with the farm until I can get back. I can’t do anything to strenuous right now which sucks. Good thing Dave and the girls can clean the coop.

May your moon shine brightly. May your harvest be abundant.

Sunday’s Best Round Up News About Nothing At All

The best news I have for you all is…………The chicken coop only needs a new door and some siding. We took the old door and put it on til we can get a new one. We have the roof up and the chickens in. They even have a porch. After my surgery I will take newer pics of the new coop with all the tools cleaned up but I do have some from today.

19818218173_3c15bd7cf1_m20412954326_2f7d9da2be_m

The chickens are really excited about their new porch. Our big, fat, mean roo is already thinking he is cock of the walk on the porch.

Cheech and Chong seem to not really care about anything but worms.

We tore down the old coop. It served its purpose until this one was made. A moment of silence for the old coop!

My rockstar is trying to be a farmer today. lol.

20251763780_145c6a3e57_m

Isn’t she cute?! Yeah she will go far in the modeling world.

Tonight we have thunderstorms which sucks. Last night we had the best sunset. Well, until the next best sunset anyway.

I only had my flip phone to take the sunset photos so they aren’t spectacular. Neither is this picture of so called deer. I wish I would have taken my Fire phone. You can’t even see the deer in this picture.

I have the best cat ever. I just love sitting around talking to my Dirt Bag. He is so cute and lovable. He sits and actually meows back to me like we are having a conversation.

20251172388_d1e8a05a25_m

There he is sitting like a prince. He thinks he is king of the homestead!

I had a fellow blogger give me some excellent advice. She told me about EverNote. Holy crap Batman! That is an excellent program. It is like OneNote on steroids. If you need something to house your articles and let you write at the same time, get Evernote. I just love it.

May your rain fall softly. May your rooster crow at dawn.

Hump Day Coffee Madness With Cheech & Chong From the Hen House!

Our pot of coffee is made. We added sprinkles to our coffee. We are out of whipped cream 😦

19928836539_7a26a51762_m

It is a great morning today. A cool breeze is blowing. Baby Baby and I are playing with the minions. I need to go to town soon for supplies. I am very grateful the docs gave me a different med for the acid reflux. I can have a few cups of coffee now. It has to be like tea but I can have some. I added a shake of yellow sprinkles to my cafe this morning.

I made a pot of Black Cherry Crisp. Very good black but for a kicker, I added in a chocolate creamer. I tried it with the white chocolate as well. Oh, you talk about heaven!

19928903659_3af522f574_m19928905799_50408cd41e_m

It is suppose to get up to 83 degrees. The cats are already coming in. I have pictures of how dead they were yesterday. Today isn’t going to be any different. I had to help one of Dave’s clients take a van off of his trailer. That was a mistake. Now my tummy hurts. Dave is off with Adrian cutting down trees. They are both making money getting trees trimmed, stumps removed, and taking down dead trees. A Yooper has to do what a Yooper has to do. Plenty of people now have firewood in their yard thanks to those two.

20105038901_bf882bf1c4_m20091728072_5001e0f238_m20091691402_040261a9a8_m19911577278_65d2f5aba1_m

I got a picture of Cheech and Chong up in the cherry tree.

19912974349_57215cdaf3_m

They are so damn cute. Up in the tree, they are. They flew up there.

Lastly, here is last nights moon. It is getting fuller. We are suppose to have a blue moon this month. Can you believe it is already July 29th? Man, how time flies.

Baby Baby and I are off to continue writing Saturday’s story. I will write another nothing episode later.

A Nothing Episode About Taco Tuesday With More Pics of Cheech & Chong

Baby Baby and I started our day outside finishing the story for Friday. We have that done and scheduled. That will be my first here so cross your fingers let’s all hope it works. Baby Baby can still fly so to protect him I put him in a cage. He doesn’t like the cage but it is for his safety. I took a picture of him. I told him to pose for his picture and smile.

That is what I got. Leave it to a bird.

It has been in the 80’s here lately. That is hot for da UP especially since we are used to 30 below. We are all soaking up the heat and loving it. I got a picture of Ryder sleeping in the sunshine and shade of our cherry tree. I loves being outside. He is a rescue dog. He is part beagle and part basset hound. He is going blind so we keep him on a chain. He likes to run when spooked and with my road, well, I don’t want him killed.

IMG_20150728_1050512_rewind

The cats have all been laying around looking dead. They are feral and come into my house at the hottest moments of the day to sleep. Why they want to sleep in a house that is hotter than outside I will never know. Zelda’s babies are now playing. I had to give these cats some sort of name so I could get them vet care. I have been taking in ferals left and right to get spayed and neutered. We call Zelda’s babies Carmen (pure white one), Jude (black and white), and Ruby (the only girl who is orange, black, and white). They are getting so big. Soon it will be time for their vet visits.

I made tacos for supper tonight. Yes, Yoopers do eat something besides pasties! We even enjoy pannu kakku for breakfast or dessert. The girls have been asking for tacos for about a month or so now. I had to give in especially when I found little boats to use.

IMG_20150728_1648592_rewindIMG_20150728_1649410_rewind

I have wild raspberries growing throughout my yard. I really love them. They are tiny compared to what you get in the store but they are way more yummy. Sweeter than the store ones as well. I am thinking about transplanting all of the bushes to one area of my yard. That should make picking them easier.

IMG_20150728_1057585_rewind

And now the pictures everyone really wants to see and the two celebrities of the chicken farm, our mini Rhode Island Reds, Cheech and Chong! I know my mom wants to take them home. They are the cutest little things ever. They squeak when they crow. They are funny. They make the hen house. Here they are. Hot off the presses. Fresh photos from just today!

May your water stay fresh and cold. May your days be filled with plenty. Til next time!

Love the Hen House!

Tuesday Morning Coffee Brief with Cheech & Chong!

UPDATE

I decided to test this with my Flickr account. I love drinking from this cup.What is your favorite cup to drink from? I label this my movie cup Tuesday. I love getting coffee mugs with movies or television shows on them. They are unique.

This is a test. Testing! Testing! Quiet on the set!

You may now go back to your regularly scheduled coffee drinking.
