HERBALIFE UP!

 Let's talk about progress for a minute. Those who follow know I do 1 shake and 2 miles a day. Today was different. Did 3 miles in 44 minutes and didn't even know it! I attribute that to the regime I've put myself on plus, I take Restore at night which has helped in having a solid nights sleep. If taking #herbalife is helping me, what do you think it will do for you? There's only one way to find out

HERBALIFE UP!

 You know how the day is beginning. 12oz of almond milk, 2 scoops of cookies n cream shake, 1 scoop of prolesa, drink then 2 miles. It really is that easy. #Herbalife 

If you're just looking for an extra boost, you can't go wrong with the lift-off pills. Mix with 6-8 ounces of water, drink and your off! One of my customers was shocked that she had lost 2.5 lbs when she thought she'd been gaining. Even I noticed how flatter her stomach was. 

Losing weight really is that easy.

To Those Who Served

 


 

 

          A day of reflection is how I view 9/11, not just for the civilians that died that fateful day, but for the men and women who signed up and set out to avenge those who believed the United States would do nothing to fight back and defend ourselves.

          We saw that spirt on December 8th, 1941 after Pearl Harbor was attacked. Tens of thousands flocked to the recruiting stations to sign up and fight the enemy of the day.

          Then, like now, our enemies believed the United States to be weak and immoral. They were wrong then and they were wrong twenty years ago. Why?

          They grossly underestimate the valor, honor and integrity of our youth. They are the ones that answer the call. They are the ones that will go toe-to-toe with any foe, foreign or domestic. They are the ones who are the guardians of our nation.

          They do not focus on the politics of the day or the weak kneed who constantly yammer for peace, when it isn’t an option. They enlist and prepare to defend our great country.

         


          They come from all walks of life and ethnicities. Being killed or wounded isn’t foremost in their minds. Correcting a wrong and meting out justice is what they think about and they do!

          They put aside petty differences and ideologies. The only thing that matters is the comrade to their left or right; for their lives depend on them.

          They serve proudly, despite the ineptness of politicians and some of their leaders. They hold their heads high and backs stiff when the Stars and Stripes is raised. They are the first to stand and remove covers when the Star Spangled Banner is played. Why? Because they know the price they paid to protect the freedoms and liberties we all take for granted. They cried, laughed and bled with their fellow soldiers. They shared family photos and stories of their youth and adventures. They become one and because of that, are the most feared fighting force on the planet, something our enemies continually fail to recognize. 

          As we remember the innocent lives lost twenty years ago, let us not forget those that answered the call and kept our country safe and secure for the last twenty years.

          A warning to those who believe we are weak and won’t defend ourselves if and when attacked, you would be wise to study our history and how we, as a nation, react when provoked. It has never worked out in the favor of the aggressor. However, if you feel compelled to test our strength, and resolve, be prepared to pay the ultimate price! For we do not forgive and we do not forget those who try to trample on our rights and freedoms.

          For each headstone you see, remember this, four to ten or your insurgent brothers will fall and we will not stop until you are completely eradicated or reminded, not to awaken a sleeping giant, for our youth will answer the call and with great precision, take you out, one by one until the mission is complete.

          And when the dust has settled and the fight finished, we will proudly bury and honor those who sacrificed everything to keep us safe.

          So ask yourself this question, are you willing to pay the price?

Mortalities were 1,645/ day, an increase of 112 per day from last week. The average death toll per day for the last 620 days is 1,063. And increase of 7 from last week.

Worldwide Ranking mortalities/population, Bosnia .3028%, Brazil .28%, Columbia .2495%. Italy .2155%, Mexico .2137%, England .2013%, US .1999%, Spain .1825%, France .1744% and Sweden .1427%.

Six states, NY, NY CT, CA, MA, WA.  account for 23.832% of cases and 28% of mortalities. TX and FL respectively 18% and 17%. FL has the highest infection rate/population 16%.  TX, NJ 13%, NY, CA 12%, MA11% and CN 10%. Of the big four, new cases reported, NY 34,298, CA 68,875, TX 119,984 and FL 109,244.

          All of these numbers are generated from information obtained from the CDC and John Hopkins.

          In regards to vaccinations, the US is at 54.1% while the world is at 30.1% completely vaccinated.

          On a personal note, I did receive the first shot last week. Some will ask why. Some will ask why did it take so long. My answer to those questions is simple, none of your damn business. It’s a personal choice based on the information I’ve gathered over the last sixteen months and the career direction I’m taking. It has noting to do with what the media is constantly spewing, or those that attempt to shame those who won’t take it or those that chose not to be a guinea pig. That is what the media has pushing and continues to push today.

          Our parents and grand-parents were faced with the same decisions back in the 50’s when Jonas Salk introduced the polio vaccine after decades of research. It wasn’t widely received when they were informed, they would be infected with the disease to prevent the disease.  Excuse me? You’re going to put what in my body? Thank you, no. It was a choice until the school districts decided to have mandatory vaccinations for children, if they wanted to attend school.

          I don’t remember my parents hooting and hollering about the shot I would receive. They made sure I was where I was supposed to be, at the correct to get the shot. There was no mass media, twenty-four hour news pounding the populace to take it or not to take it. Our parents did the research and decided it was the right choice and that’s how I look at today’s vaccine. Turn off the TV, stop reading FB and twitter posts that have their own agenda. Do your own research and make the decision that is right for you.

Remembering 911 and the changes in America.

 

Wrote this two years ago. 

America after 911. Where are we today?

            Eighteen years ago, Americans woke up to another promising summer day. At 8:46am we sat in shock and awe at the news of a plane striking the North World Trade Tower. Initial reports were sketchy and unclear on what was happening.

            Could this have been an accident? Was it pilot error or equipment malfunction? While the news agencies attempted to digest the first crash, I was running every scenario I could draw upon to understand what had happened. At 9:03, everything changed. This wasn’t a random act-America was under attack. I walked into the office and one of the men asked me what I thought was happening. “We’re at war.”

            Shock turned to horror to anger. Who performed this cowardly act and why? America came together as they did on December 7th, 1941. We were all galvanized in a common goal of bringing those responsible to justice. If that meant war, then so be it. We had been attacked without provocation.

            We saw our elected officials finally stand together, holding hands and signing. It was time for petty political bickering to cease and take care of business. Even the press was onboard. But, unlike our parents and grandparents who thrived with a patriotic fervor for almost thirty years, our unity would be short lived. In less than three years, the press and democrats began questioning the President. The days of standing as one, was over. The daily business of pointless political bantering once again became the norm.

            Eighteen years later the landscape of the press and the political climate is no longer in the interest of the American public; they are solely pushing political agendas and damn the country.

I’ve heard all of the reasons on why this happened but none of them hold water!

            It’s twitter, Facebook, snapchat, tumbler, google, blogs or a host of other social media sites. Some will say it’s the liberal presses fault or the few conservative outlets that are spreading the hate, the lies, the disinformation and the dissension. To a small degree those are fair assumptions. But where does the real problem lay?

            Our parents and grandparents, whether democrat, republican or independent grew up in a country where law and order were respected. Teachers, police, first-responders and parents were respected. They were the ones molding the upcoming generations to be good citizens that would be accountable for their actions. This started changing with the formation of the Department of Education and allowing the courts to interfere with the operations of the public-school system. If a student felt they were being unjustly treated or had to participate in a school activity, such as gym class, they were no longer forced to. Forced to? I think not. It was part of growing up and learning how to accept defeat and disappointment. We didn’t receive participation trophies for showing up, we earned a trophy for finishing first, second or third, nor for showing up!

            I believe the first case that set the precedent was in Arkansas where there was a dress and hair code. Little Johnny’s hair was too long and the principal told him to go home and get it cut. A suit was filed and little Johnny’s parents won. While on the surface this might seem trivial; it wasn’t! More suits were filed through the years with similar rulings and repercussions. The High School I attended in Tulsa, Oklahoma, 76-78, became a shell of the school I knew. Why is it necessary to have police on campus? The only time I saw an officer in High School is when I was parking with my date or getting a ticket. Not on campus! Yet, that is now the norm. Why?

            Some call it progress. Progress indeed! Is putting law and order, accountability and personal responsibility on the shelf, progress? I think not. But that is the norm and it must stop! Imagine if the men that invaded, North Africa, Sicily, France, Belgium, Holland and Germany would have held a collective vote. Do think we would have defeated the Japanese at Midway, Tarawa, Saipan, Iwo Jima, Okinawa if present day attitudes had infected our military? NO! And let us not forget about the Airmen and Naval personal who swept the skies clear of Axis planes and cleared the sea routes of enemy intruders. With today’s thinking, it wouldn’t he happen and we’d be speaking German, Japanese or Italian. That’s a fact, Jack!

            With that said, the core problem has yet to be identified. It’s right there in front of your face. If it was a snake you’d have already been bitten. Well, if it’s so damn obvious, why can’t I see it? Look closer and harder. See it yet? No? Then pull out a mirror. That’s right, it’s you and us. We are the problem. We have let social media and the press, right or left influence every post and story. How many of you post useless meme’s degrading an opposing party thinking it’s funny or cute? How many futile arguments have you engaged in then retreated to your blanket fort or a tub of comfort food because the world is so mean and evil? Well, remember, you contributed to it and then ran away. If you have a valid point to make that adds to a discussion, research than comment, not vice-a-versa. And be ready for dissenting comments because in today’s climate you will have to be personally accountable for your actions. Can you handle that? Sure. You only have to turn off your phone, computer, laptop or tablet and the problem will go away, right? Wrong! It will only fester and continue to grow.

            Some say there is no way we can ever come together again. That is more media mind bending. Don’t believe me, then try this on for size. College football and the NFL seasons have kicked off. Between sixty to one hundred and ten thousand fans pack a stadium every weekend to watch THEIR team play. It is a fervent and sometime rabid atmosphere. Do you think for one minute all of those fans are from one political party? Do you think they all have the same likes and dislike? Do you think they will agree on the plays the coach calls during the game? Highly unlikely but they do have one common thread, they are cheering for their team. And that is what is missing in our society today. Instead of routing for the team, America, we are too consumed with supporting individual players. And since the players know that, they will act accordingly even if it isn’t in the best interests of the team. When that happens, what do the owners or coaches do with such an individual? They have a short “Come to Jesus Meeting” and give them a choice, join the team or you’re gone. That’s right, they were just held accountable for their actions.

            That is what is sorely lacking in America today. How can people work together when they spend all their time giving press conferences and discussing how they can’t agree on what color toilet paper they should be using? I know that’s a ludicrous example, but that is the climate in Washington DC today. The color doesn’t matter, the issue is, does it work. Color is irrelevant!

            It is time for us as a nation, “We the People,” to take back what our forefathers and ancestors fought and died for; a land of liberty, justice, freedom and accountability.
