From a Simple Woman’s Day Blog

I was reading some “mom” blogs and came across a mom who used The Simple Woman’s Day Blog format. I thought it was neat… I’ll give it a try.

Outside my window. . .it’s pretty dark on my road with the exception of the yellow glow under the street lights.

I am thinking. . .about how I need to just take a deep breath and relax.

From the learning room. . .nothing right now, because it’s 10:30 at night.

I am thankful for. . .my family.

From the kitchen. . .is Bradley’s left over birthday cake…and it is very tempting.

I am wearing. . .my PJ’s. Paisley bottoms and a green shirt.

I am creating. . .special journals for each of the kids.

I am going. . .to write a book one day.

I am reading. . .Paula Deen’s autobiography.

I am hoping. . .that I get a good nights rest and keep a good attitude.

I am hearing. . .My daughter making silly nonsense. She is purposely trying to drive me nuts.

Around the house. . .packed boxes, packing tape, permanent marker, bubble wrap….the story of my life from now until we move.

One of my favorite things. . .reading a good book.

A few plans for the rest of the week. . .taking the kids to the local corn maze and then drinking hot chocolate after we get done.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing. . .sorry I am not proficient at getting pictures on here yet. Don’t laugh at me.

Wealth Redistribution

Well, now the latest story is about Obama’s tax plan…in his own words he said he wants to “spread the wealth around”. What’s with that? Doesn’t that smack of socialism or Marxism? Also he wants to give a yearly tax credit (money back) to those who aren’t even paying any taxes into the system!! How is that fair? Those of us who took it upon ourselves to become educated, have or had good jobs and make a decent living need to redistribute the wealth? What is the incentive to do well if it’s going to be taxed right out of you? While others NOT paying taxes are getting money sent to them???? I deeply resent that. Now, before anyone jumps on me about giving to the poor…..not being my brother’s keeper…..I have ALWAYS donated my time and money to various charities, ever since I understood the point of it. I gave because I WANTED too, not because I was FORCED too by the government. What is the incentive to try and better yourself if you know that you are going to be taxed to death for actually working and making something of yourself? And why is it my responsibility to pay for those who choose to not work, or who didn’t excel in school or for that matter didn’t even try to do well? Yes, there are people like that out there. Where does personal responsibility for your own self come into this? The American people for the most part are a giving group of people–when people are down and out we want to help, but we want it to be OUR choice.

Go to the Heritage Foundation at / and look up the article on Obama’s plan. Read it for yourself. Be enlightened.
