I started my facebook sabbatical 

Call it a new years resolution if you want, but my plans are to read more during my time off. I did it last year and I will do it again, just wait and see.

I also intent to learn to play my piano/keyboard, something that has been on my “to do” list for a long time now.

No need to wish me luck… I’ve got this!

If she is being abused, why doesn’t she…?

Ahh, but in my daughters situation, he has proven HIMself to be the crazy one; time and time again.
But there is the baby (needing her father), the threats of suicide, and who else knows what, that “forces” her to stay. ***sigh***

Achoo Achoo… Aaa-Aaa-Achoo

My daughter has this thing that instead of one or two sneezes, she will sneeze 5, 6 or maybe 7 times in a row.

Personally I feel any more than three sneezes in a row, just means there’s no help for you. (LoL)
~but then I’m digressing.

I don’t like the “bless you” I often hear, and here is the reason why; I do not want to “be less” better. I want to “be more” better .
I do not “be less” anyone, and I don’t want to be “be lessed” by anyone either, for that matter.

I say “be more” for your sake, not mine.
But I’m not offended, no way.
So don’t worry… Be Happy.

How Trustworthy is the Mainstream Media?

Mainstream Media (msm)? More like Baaah News Media. ~Baaahd Wolf

DNews

Do the words “whistleblowing” and “journalism” belong in the same sentence? It seems today, the job of the investigative journalist is to dodge career bullets as they write their “explosive” article and toe the proverbial sponsorship line when investigating content.

The Mainstream Media sponsorship of content isn’t something new, but over the last few years, it has become increasingly evident, the extent to which companies such as CNN, MSNBC are so many more media corporations, are doctoring their content to the needs of those higher up. Journalists who opt to report the truth tend to suffer in silence.; and are often kept in the dark about these paid sponsorships. Journalists who dare to present facts away from fiction in the face of conflict-of-interest, journalists who dare have the audacity to report factual content are being silenced, persecuted by peers and sometimes unemployed.

CIA-media partnerships have moved strength to strength since…

VA Has Been Shredding Documents Needed for Veterans’ Claims

VA Has Been Shredding Documents Needed for Veterans’ Claims

Stars and Stripes | Apr 16, 2016 | by Dianna Cahn
Department of Veterans Affairs investigators conducted spot checks at 10 veterans benefits offices around the country and came to a disturbing conclusion: The VA has been systemically shredding documents related to veterans’ claims — some potentially affecting their benefits.
The VA Office of Inspector General conducted the surprise audit at 10 regional offices on July 20, 2015, after an investigation into inappropriate shredding in Los Angeles found that staff there was destroying veterans’ mail related to claims, according to an OIG report released Thursday.
Investigators arrived unannounced at regional offices and sifted through 438,000 documents awaiting destruction as of 11 a.m. Of 155 claims-related documents, 69 were found to have been incorrectly placed in shred bins at six of the regional offices: Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, New Orleans, Philadelphia and Reno, Nev. There were none at Baltimore, Oakland, San Juan and St. Petersburg, Fla.
Investigators determined that two of the 69 documents affected benefits directly, nine had the potential to affect benefits and the rest would not affect benefits but were required to be in the claims folders before destruction and were not there.
It was enough, the report said, to conclude that not only were the problems systemic, the impact could be serious.
“The potential effect should not be minimized,” the report concluded. “Considering that there are 56 [VA regional offices], and if weekly shredding is conducted, it is highly likely that claims-related documents at other VAROs are being improperly scheduled for destruction that could result in loss of claims and evidence, incorrect decisions and delays in claims processing.”
The findings were the latest in a stream of mishandling of veterans care and benefits at the beleaguered Department of Veterans Affairs. The VA has been embroiled in scandal since the spring of 2014, when revelations emerged that the appointment wait list at the Phoenix VA Medical Center was so long that managers had manipulated the schedules to cover up delays. Patients had languished for months and in some cases years awaiting treatment. Some of them died before receiving care.
In February, the inspector general’s office, under pressure to publicize its findings, released dozens of investigations into wait times at various VA hospitals showing the problem persists across the system.
In Thursday’s report, the inspector general’s office determined that the errors in destroying claims documents in general stemmed from a lack of understanding of the Veteran’s Benefits Administration policy on managing paper records. The VBA’s policy was revised in 2011, three years after the policy was created. The report said management and staff found the policy “unclear and confusing.”
It also found that records management staff were often tasked with other duties that sometimes diverted them from their duties of reviewing documents scheduled for destruction.
“VBA’s policy is outdated, lacks standardized procedures for records management staff and increases the likelihood for VARO staff to destroy claims-related documents without supervisory-level review,” the report said.
The OIG’s office recommended that the Acting Under Secretary for Benefits Danny Pummill revise the policy to ensure claims documents are clearly identified, and that there are detailed and standardized procedures for records management staff to review documents. It also called for safeguards to ensure that the documents get the mandated levels of review, that employees comply with the policy and that supervisors conduct periodic reviews of the claims-related documents slated for shredding.
In its response, the Veteran’s Benefits Administration concurred with the recommendations and agreed to revise the policy and also realign staff responsibilities to “ensure procedures are in place to track all shredding violations identified.”
But it denied that the findings indicated a systemic issue.
“VBA knows that every veteran’s record is important and regrets these human errors,” the response said. “However we disagree that a fraction of a percentage error rate is indicative of a systemic issue.”

Breastfeeding? Not natural, not better

Philosophies of a Disenchanted Scholar

I can’t believe how far this SJW influence has come.
They will happily ruin people’s lives for the sake of politics.
Breastfeeding is the definition of natural, it’s a condition of being mammal, and every reasonable study conducted has proven it is better.

http://www.examiner.com/article/pediatrics-journal-says-to-stop-calling-breastfeeding-natural

A new article in the journal Pediatrics is calling on health professionals to stop saying thatbreastfeeding is natural, arguing that doing so gives the impression that natural parenting practices are healthier. The authors have started a public campaign to end the positive use of the word natural, claiming that it is associated with such “problematic” practices as home birth, homeschooling and the rejection of GMO foods, and that natural parenting movements are interfering with vaccination efforts.

In the article, Unintended Consequences of Invoking the “Natural” in Breastfeeding Promotion, Jessica Martucci and Anne Barnhill, Medical Ethics and Health Policy researchers at Penn Medicine, wrote:

Only 6% of Americans trust the mainstream media: All the lies about vaccines, GMOs and false economic statistics are finally sinking in

Americans are growing increasingly disillusioned, as the mainstream media continues to lie to them about vital issues such as vaccines, the economy and GMOs.

While a number of people have been looking at the mainstream media with a skeptical eye for some time now, the majority of the population has generally shrugged this off as they go about their daily lives. However, as the state of affairs in the country continues to head in a negative direction on nearly every front, people are getting fed up with the lies and turning toward independent news sources in greater numbers.

People are no longer stuck settling for one of just three major networks for their news, thanks to the expansion of cable, the internet and smartphones. This helps them move away from government talking points and news tainted by corporate influence.

Pennsylvania Becomes 24th State to Legalize Medical Marijuana

Is this truth OR is this fiction?
Sadly, it is NOT my state.

After the state House voted in favor of the medical marijuana bill, marijuana activists were biting their nails for fear the Senate would find a way to slow or stall the bill, but the bill passed last week.

Supporters knew they’d been successful, as Governor Tom Wolf had vowed to sign it into law. And the governor did not disappoint. Wolf signed the bill on Sunday, making Pennsylvania the 24th state in the nation to embrace marijuana as a legitimate form of medical treatment.

Wolf said:

“This is really a great day for Pennsylvania. This is really a great day for all of us.” [1]

Cheers and applause broke out in the capitol rotunda in Harrisburg when the law was passed. Northumberland County resident Maria Belkadi wept with joy. Her 7-year-old son, Marksen, suffers from severe autism and sometimes screams for hours. Belkadi has…

How to cope with information overload

According to Forbes Magazine, the average worker receives about 200 emails a week. In the last five years we have embraced a bewildering variety of messaging apps and social media platforms. To stay on top of our lives, we’re obliged to read official communications, go through bills and bank statements, and work our way through piles of dreary virtual paperwork. We’re bombarded with data on hourly basis, from rolling news channels, online newsfeeds, automatic notifications and many other sources. The more ambitious and curious of us also have personal reading lists, with hundreds of unread books crammed onto our Kindle or I-pad. The volume of information we have to process is unparalleled in human history and our brain often struggles to deal with it, slipping into a “zombie” mode…

“A SHORT NOTE ABOUT APRIL 19/MAY 1ST”

Time will tell what tomorrow brings.
In a scary way, I’m looking forward to it, come what may.

Brian McCarthy

Tomorrow is April 19, and given the history of this date and the current state of the world,.I don’t think anyone should be surprised if something really BIG happens either tomorrow, or on April 20.

I say this because April 19/20 in recent times have been days when gruesome events seem to occur, many of which are arguably staged events, or at the very least very dubious.

1)Remember Waco? ———-April 19, 1993.

2) Remember the “Oklahoma City bombing?” ——-April 19,1995

3) Remember the Columbine massacre?——–April 20, 1999

4) Remember the Deepwater Horizon oil explosion?——April 20, 2010

But tomorrow, April 19,2016, something that is far more ominous is taking place—-the new “Asian International Investment Bank”(Which opened on Jan.16,2016) which is based in Beijing is announcing their new “gold backed Yuan” which will be put into circulation.

What makes this news “ominous” is that not only is this new bank not…
