they Talk the Talk but don’t Walk the Walk

Too many people spend so much time Talking about what we should do to *save the planet, *save the whales, *stop animal cruelty, *stop child abuse, *stop illegal immigration, etc., but they never actually Do anything that really makes a difference. They tend to enable the problem as opposed to fixing or ending it.

For example; instead of spending efforts to house all of the millions of abandoned dogs and cats, they should put a five-year ban on breeding. Those who violate this rule would be charged an enormous fine and possibly lose their pets.

Instead of trying to find new sources for fuel we should stop letting our members of congress and other wealthy people waste the fuel we have flying around on their private jets and cruising their yachts. And set a rule that no more than two cars per family is permitted.

we would not need new sources of power if every car dealership and department stores and shopping malls, etc. did not need to use overkill when it comes to lighting. It is an enormous waste.

Everyone is yelling save the  trees, don’t use plastic, go green!! Yet it’s our lawmakers and the big corporations that produce the products that are most harmful to our environment. The plastic and batteries used to make tech products. The tons of plastic used everyday for packaging at the warehouses that supply big businesses. And the stacks of paper that our govt. offices use to print useless information, are all beyond ridiculous and unnecessary If you have been to any govt. ran office or even a hospital lately you know what i mean by the stack of unnecessary paperwork they hand you on your way out the door.

If you want child abuse, domestic abuse and animal abuse to stop then make the punishment so severe that fear keeps people from becoming abusers. OR let the punishment fit the crime!!! that would definitely make people think twice. But slapping them on the hand or sending them to jail to hang with their buddies is not the answer And stop taking kids away from their parents and giving them to their grandparents. How stupid is that?? You are giving them to the people who raised the abusers in the first place

BUT WHAT DO I KNOW? I’M JUST A SIMPLE HICK CHICK.

NO SENSE AT ALL

A little GIRL who dreamed of someday graduating from a college university, had a less than perfect childhood, and began supporting herself at age 16.  SHE graduated a year early from high school, with honors, so at age 17  SHE was a  F/T employee and a  F/T college student.  At 18,after hearing that HER older sister was not going to complete the  last 3 months of business college due to no childcare, SHE left school and HER job to go help HER sister 2000 miles away. Six months later SHE returned and went back to work and school,  both full time.  Not long after that HER grandfather became ill. So, once again SHE put HER life and HER dreams on hold to leave the state. Once he was back on his feet SHE  returned to HER life of  school  and work. However, this time SHE also had the responsibility of caring for and supporting HER sister who was ten years younger.  SHE made sure that HER little sister needed for nothing .Even if that meant cutting back on HER classes/credits. WELL it is now ten years later and the little GIRL with the dream has NEVER given up. SHE still strives every day to succeed in reaching that goal.  HER gpa has always been 4.0.  SHE is a role model for  little girls around the world. by always conducting HERSELF as a lady, having the highest of morals, and always striving to do HER best; no matter what the task might be . SHE is described by all, as the most beautiful person inside and out, the most altruistic, benevolent, sincerely kind person you will ever know.  Yet in spite of all this, she may not fulfill  her dream because of the enormous cost in calif. to attend a university.  IF you are NOT a minority, IF you are NOT getting welfare, IF you do NOT have children out of wedlock and IF you work hard enough to get paid more than minimum wage, THEN YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN TO PAY FOR COLLEGE!!  It is  SAD AND DISAPPOINTING  that millionaires will help a reformed prisoner or a junkie in rehab go to college but not someone as outstanding as this young lady.    IT JUST MAKES NO SENSE AT ALL
