Everything wrong with Santa

“Why is Santa an anagram for Satan? I mean, besides the fact that both have the same amounts of the same letters. Just consider the many other similarities between the two figures: both of them are red, both of them like to laugh, both of them give presents to children and both of them are kings of an ungodly underworld of unspeakable horror and suffering. Coincidence? I THINK NOT.” 
― Sam Logan

  • Santa is one of the first Lies we tell our Children
  1. Which creates false faith
  2. A belief in a false miracle
  3. A belief in false happiness
  • Santa Creates Greed
  1. Leads to Materialism
  2. Teaches toys are replaceable
  3. Teaches one must have the latest thing
  • Needless Spending
  1. Adults go in debt over the Santa concept
  2. If Santa can do anything that means I have to buy that gift. I do not want to let down my child. Santa can never let down a child. That would be lying to your child about the original lie. We cannot have the child question why Santa could not provide.
  3. Adults work overtime which leads to a loss of valuable family time just to pay for the gifts that were started by a Lie
  • We buy things our children do not need
  1. Toy cars, planes, trucks
  2. Electronics galore (a five year old does not need a cell phone!)
  3. The latest style of clothes (You know those shoes are only going to last six months. Why not buy high quality shoes without the label?)
  • Santa Never Stops
  1. Adults buy into this crap
  2. We allow our children to sit on a STRANGERS lap
  3. We allow our children to sit on the lap anyway even if they are scared (another reason why that child lost trust in you!)
  4. We buy Santa decorations
  5. We spend millions of dollars on his face
  6. Santa is a Trademark of both Coke and Macy’s
  7. Which encourages horrible food habits and needless spending

This year stop the lie please!  Tell your children that we give gifts as a way to share with one another. If you are Christian you can include the Jesus story as well. If you are a different religion try to incorporate it in a way that your child can understand giving in the right context. For example:  The three wise men brought baby Jesus gifts because the world was happy he was here. Every year we give gifts to show someone that we do care and we are happy they are here and that everyone is cared about.

Teach your children gifts come from the heart and not the store. There are thousands of craft ideas and projects to create gifts at home that children can be involved in. They do not need to go to the local Waldrug and buy stuff made in China for their family.

STOP SETTING THEM UP FOR FAILURE. 

This is REAL LIFE

 

 

This is A FAKE LIFE

 

A Chat for the Ladies…

“Dignity does not consist in possessing honors, but in the consciousness that we deserve them.” 
― Aristotle

 

Ladies whatever happened to our sense of dignity in modern society? Why do we allow ourselves to be portrayed in such horrific ways? We are portrayed as tools on the front of a Play Boy cover. Some kind of meat that people can drool over. We are portrayed as being the perfect wives with the perfect body and homes in magazines. We are told to look a certain way and to always go out in make up. 

Let me tell you something you have probably not been told in a long time. You look great without make up! You are not a doll. We fought for centuries to gain a place in this society. Now we are told that our natural skin our natural eye color is not good enough. We are told that our breast size is not big enough. We are told that if we do choose to stay at home even without having kids that we are lazy. That we need to provide our way through. But then we are told we are lazy and gross if the house is a mess because we work full time.

Ladies give it a break! You cannot have both worlds. To be a true home maker means doing the laundry, cooking food from scratch, knowing how to sew, keeping the home clean and organized. To be a true worker means to excel in the workplace and focus on money. If your with someone that loves homemaking and you love working then that works too! You should never be told where your place is in society. Your heart knows where your place is. If you are a mom honestly your place is with your children. If you are a single mom then do all you can to one day work from home. Your children do not need to be told how to grow up by strangers in the school system. That is something I will blog on later. The horrors of both the public and private school systems. 

Why do you feel like you have to give yourself away? If you are not married please save your body and be single. A condom will not protect you from STDs. In fact condoms contain spermicides that will cause you to be sterile. If you are using condoms now to avoid pregnancy you are only weakening your chances to get pregnant later in life. Your best choice is to remain celibate. In 2011 Psychology Today put out an article called Sex: Intelligent Intercourse. Here is a quote from that article. 

People with high executive functioning—in judgment, decision-making, and impulse control—usually have what’s called a slow life history strategy, notes Aurelio José Figueredo, an evolutionary psychologist at the University of Arizona: They tend to have fewer partners and less sex but more resources (such as money and status) to invest in potential offspring.

http://www.psychologytoday.com/articles/201108/sex-intelligent-intercourse

If you are already saving yourself please keep doing so. Do not feel like you need to find a guy because your friends are making fun of you. You are not missing a lot. I waited until I was married and I do not regret it. I was made fun of a lot. I was told you have no idea what you are missing. I would say how? I wont know until I try it. So I am not missing anything. Why create an urge that was not there? That is added stress.

You will be the shoulder others cry on when they find out that they are pregnant earlier then they expected to be or they have a life threatening disease. Focus on having an adventure in your early twenties. I settled down at 21 it was too early for me looking back on my life now. I do not regret getting married or getting married to the person that I did. I regret being 21 at doing that. Now that I am 27 I know myself a lot better. I think I would have had a stronger future if I had waited until I was in my late 20s to get married. Maybe my lesson I had to learn can help you. That is why I shared it. Please just let people make fun of you but take the time to enjoy being free. 

If you are in your late twenties and still have not found the right person don’t settle to be a mom. You can always adopt later on in life. You do not NEED to create life. There are children who are alive right now who are desperate and NEED your love. Foster parents are also needed. Babies become teenagers. Teenagers become adults. Your baby will not stay cute forever. He or she will need an education a good education. The worst thing you can do is raise a child that cannot think for him or herself. We do not need more children that are created to sit in front of a TV. We have had enough of that and look where it has got us. Not very far. We need thinkers, creators, inventors, artists, healers, and teachers badly. We do not need slave and drone children. 

If you have thought about homeschooling please go for it! If you are a single mom who has to work understandable. Please find a talent that you can make money at home doing! Be home with your children! However do not quit your job this second because of this blog. If you do work as hard as you can to put food on the table that is good. Not every parent does that. However pick that one crazy dream and follow it. J.K. Rowling wrote Harry Potter in a cafe on napkins………….

Another thing that bothers me with being female the way that we are expected to dress. It is so hard to find something that will cover all parts of the body! Not everyone enjoys clothes that cling to their breasts or stick to their bum! You do not need to be viewed and loved for your physical attributes. Flaunting what you have will cause negative attention. You really want to keep that to yourself. You want people to notice your personality and your kind soul. Not your breasts and your butt. 

While we are discussing the physical I am going to go a little off the deep end. Shaving! Stop shaving the pubic area! You hit puberty for a reason. It is because you develop from looking like a little girl into a woman. You are not a little girl so why should you look like one? If you are a male reading this it is gross IF you are into that sort of thing.(I have met males who find females that shave disgusting)  Children have no hair! Do you find children attractive? I hope not.

So why would you expect women to be shaven? There is nothing sexy about taking an adult part of the body and making it child like! You have pubic hair so feces and urine do not go into the vagina or urethra. Same with a male. You have pubic hair to keep bacteria and viruses from going into your urethra. The hair is coarse because it traps the stuff you do not want inside of you. If you do not have it the bacteria will breed into the open areas. Those open areas go directly into your body. I am sure you shower once a day at least. It does not matter. Bacteria builds throughout the day. I am sure you use the bathroom more then once a day at work and you cannot shower at work in between going to the bathroom. What happens when you start to sweat? Toilet paper does not kill bacteria and viruses! You do not want to have to go to the ER for random severe pain and have some stranger dealing with a situation that could have been prevented in the first place. 

Now I am not encouraging looking like the Yetti either. Stay trimmed but do not wax or shave. Shaving also leaves you open to getting cuts. What if you nick an area and you get bacteria in your blood stream? Fecal bacteria is fatal in the blood. So the next time you hear people saying people who do not shave are gross just laugh in your brain. Your not going to get an infection because you choose to have hair. 

Be proud of having an adult body. 

Your body. You need to take care of it. I am seeing a horrible mindset reversal in social media. Women are now posting that it is cool to be chunky. Having a big butt is in and having curves is in. If you are NATURALLY curvy that is fine. Be NATURALLY curvy. However be proud if you are .  There is no pride in being chunky due to your own choices. Now if you are over weight due to a health disorder that is different. I have been there. I was on medications that made me blow up faster then a baby orca before. It took me years of sweat and tears just to be able to figure out how to be healthy. For me I found eating vegetarian, lactose, and gluten free is best. I am tired of people taking pride in being unhealthy. Having a heart attack is not sexy! Rock climbing, hiking, dancing, running, walking, etc is. If you eat as healthy as you possibly can and you are active and you still hold onto weight then that is who you are! Take pride in that also! 

If you have a large breast size do not flaunt it. You do not have to push your breasts into your face and wear a low cut top to have us notice! We really do not care as human beings. I want to know that there is intelligence in your brain. Breasts are not intended to be sex objects (listen up men!). They are used to feed babies! That is it! Your big size is no different then my smaller size and they all do the same thing! I do not understand the big deal. 

This topic was written out of love not to judge. If you have made mistakes in life or life is not the way it was supposed to turn out for you that is okay. If you are a young mom be the best young mom to that child! However if you are struggling with the children that you do have do not create more. Focus your resources on the life that you do have. If you are blessed in many ways then by all means procreate! Life is amazing and should be created! But life should not be created due to a one night drunken fling or affair. 

Please start living with pride. Do not display your body as a trademark through make up, clothes, tattoos, getting drunk, and getting laid. You are not owned you are not a trademark. Please be free no matter what age you are. I do not care if you are 15 or 75. Focus on your mind Ladies! Be intelligent! Your bodies are just a physical thing. What is inside truly counts! It shows when I meet someone who focuses on their mind over their body. Those are the people I call my friends.

Thanks for reading this. 

 

 

 

 

What Are We Desperate For?

Chris Martin Writes

I won’t lie. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the entire year. And it’s not because I’m thankful. It’s all about the food. I start looking forward to the Thanksgiving meal the day after Thanksgiving. I mean, come on. Turkey. Mashed potatoes. Stuffing. Pumpkin pie. Gravy. Okay, I need to stop and wipe up the puddle of drool on my keyboard. Just because I look forward to the food doesn’t mean I’m not thankful for what I have in my life. I strive to be thankful every day, not just during the month of November. I don’t join the masses and write something I’m thankful for on Facebook every day during the month. I’m not saying there is anything wrong with that because there isn’t. I just think we all fall into a pattern.

During Christmas, everyone celebrates the birth of Christ. We should be celebrating that every single day. Easter…

What defines you

Your job is not to make anyone happy. Your job is to make you happy. Those who taught you were here before you. Chances are they will pass on before your time is done. If you spend your entire life impressing them who will be happy for you then after they are gone?  Will you even be happy with yourself? Or did you just live out your life for them? -ME

 

 

Insanity it is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. Look at the generations above you. We have done things the same way over and over again.  Your children still stay locked up in buildings “learning” and “preparing” for the new world.  How can you learn and prepare for the adult world by staying separate from it? After 7 hours of being locked up in classrooms you would come home and do homework, sporting events, chores, maybe hang out with a friend and go to bed. Then restart. See our lives are scheduled for us before we even have the choices to schedule our own! How fair is that? Its not. That brings a whole new light to the term family planning.  When you graduate from high school you go to college if you are lucky, get a job, and maybe have kids with a lifetime partner. I mean that when I say you are lucky if you find someone that will be there for your entire life. Then you retire with the possibility of then traveling however you will be on so many medications from being a part of the system you will simply sleep and die. Working hard to obtain what the Kardashian family has is hard work.

 

Your life is not the one other people have dictated from you. Your life is yours. Do not let time steal it. If you have a crazy insane dream do it. There is no such thing as failure. I repeat there is NO such thing as failure. As long as you are learning you are not failing. Lets say you drop the last of your funds into a dream. Your dream plans fail. If they did not fail would you have met the new people on that journey? Traveled to where you traveled? What are the benefits of the failure? Start creating a failure plan with a future plan! What are the long term benefits if it does not go the way I expect? 

 

I am taking a break with insanity. I am taking off a year from the mainstream existence of society to simply live.  I have so much free time right now I do not even know what to do with it! With that free time I have came up with an ideas I never would have dreamed of if I kept doing what I was told to do. I have spent so many hours learning, reading, and working out. I have dropped 90 pounds so far and I have such a greater understanding of life. 

 

I tried doing the planning that I was taught to do by my parents, teachers, and community. It failed. Now that I am in my mid twenties it is time to redefine my life. I have came to terms with the idea that somethings are simply not going to happen. 

 

 

Put the Giving back into Thanksgiving

“If the white man wants to live in peace with the Indian, he can live in peace…..Treat all men alike. Give them all the same law. Give them all an even chance to live and grow. All men were made by the same Great Spirit Chief. They are all brothers. The Earth is the mother of all people, and all people should have equal rights upon it…….Let me be a free man, free to travel, free to stop, free to work, free to trade….where I choose my own teachers, free to follow the religion of my fathers, free to think and talk and act for myself, and I will obey every law, or submit to the penalty.”  – Chief JosephNez Perce

 

I have a lot to be grateful for this year on Thanksgiving as everyone else should be. Do I really need to take just ONE day out of the year to give thanks and celebrate? Shouldn’t every bite of food from every meal contain a thought of “Thank you” behind it? 

Why do we create such an outrageous big deal behind it? Do we really have to schedule it in the calender to remember to say thanks? 

We gather every year to remember our ancestors. They were people who were fleeing persecution or looking to gain land.  We did not understand how to survive when we landed here. The land seemed empty and there were not any typical buildings in sight. The weather was cold and the food was scarce. The Native Americans gave us the knowledge to grow food. That is why we take today to eat such a large meal. It is supposed to remind us that food is a gift from the land. It is not always going to be there. There are times where there will be plenty so treasure those moments do not take them for granted! However there will be times when food will lack in abundance. Look at the bees? They are dropping by the millions. Without them you would not eat. 

While we celebrate the Native Americans of today are starving and dyeing of thirst. Our land is dyeing with them. See they knew this land before you. We were born with this land we will die as our earth continues to die.

 Your Creator or creators whomever he or she may be gave you seeds. Try this. Take your hand and set it open palm facing up on the table. I want you to think really hard about what a seed looks like. Then Open your eyes. Do you have a seed? I doubt it. You cannot create the seed that gave you those mashed potatoes. You cannot create the egg that created that turkey. Walmart did not create your Turkey! Neither did Safeway! 

Teach your children that this land is a gift. That you once played on the streets that they now play on. Teach them that you used to hike in the parks that they are hiking in today. They have to understand that there will be people after them just like there were people before them. 

Imagine that your body carries lego men and women. Your body represents the earth. Now your blood represents the oil. Imagine all the lego men drilling into your veins over and over again. Non stop. That is what we are doing when we continue to frack. We frack to keep the system going. Keeping the system going gives us our supplies everything from food to entertainment. 

We need to not just say we are grateful. The ones that gave us our life need us to show that we are grateful. Get off the TVs, Facebook, and Football today. Please. Please at least take a part of the day to give back to the earth in some way. We made a commitment a few weeks ago to be vegetarian. That is our way of giving Thanks. Giving up meat for the better good of not only our bodies but our planet. (Random Gross fact: Meat can sit in the intestines for 20 days!)

Have you ever heard of a plant called hemp? If we break her down into oil she can fill our tanks.  We no longer need to pump the blood from the earth. Hemp seeds also contain more protein then any living meat source ever could! If you are eating a bloody animal over hemp seeds you are wasting your money! Logically speaking you are.

We need to develop the tools to utilize the oil that has already been provided for us ABOVE the earth. 

Please stop just saying Thank you. Put the Give into Thanks GIVING.  For one year just make a commitment to do as little harm as possible! 

 

 

Where did you go?

 

 

Where is my generation? The ones that were born in the 80’s and 90’s where did you go? I used to see you outside playing in the street or the fields. I haven’t seen you outside playing in a a long time. Did 9/11 kick your rear ends to hard? Did you drink to much or party to much after 21? Since when did you become your parents? I thought we were the rebellious generation with minds of our own. What happened? Now you are doing the same thing your parents did. 

 Did you turn 18 and forget what it was like to be a child? Did you focus too much on college and that false promise of success? Are you to busy working behind a desk now to pay off the bills associated with false success? Or were you very successful college went well now are you to busy working for that corporate owner? Or are you that corporate owner? 

Where are your children? Why are you not playing outside with them? Where are your laughing kids in the streets? When will you kick them outside to make memories? 

I remember what it was like to be a child. I remember what it was like to be pushed away from the TVs. Cell phones were not something every person owned.  I ran around my neighborhood without a cell phone guess what I survived and no I did not get kidnapped. 

It is sad watching the people you care about grow up and get older. I remember being a child and making vows of how our lives will go as adults. How many of you are doing that? 

How many promises to that childhood did you let down?

How long will you ignore that inner child before you go play?

When will you come out from behind your desks, tvs, cell phones, and cars? (I miss you)

Or are you going to stay behind them until you are trapped in a nursing home and you are too old to do anything about it? 

Things really have not changed much. The children of today will be behind desks too. They will forget what it was like to play one day also. What kind of example are you going to choose to be? Are you going to raise a generation that only understands work , electronics, and war? Or can the 90s generation that I remember raise a generation of free people? 

Wake up 90s generation! Do you want your children to experience the same war hell you experienced? Do you want them waking up and screaming every night because they cannot get phases of their life out of their heads? Do you want them more drugged up then you are? 

Come on pull your kids away from the I pad or TV it will be okay. It is okay to pull all the cushions off the couch and make a fort today and just read. It is okay to call into work and take your kids to a state park for a hike they haven’t ever had! It is okay to take a ball to the local field and play ball. It is okay to buy yourself a coloring book and color with your 4 year old. I promise. Nobody will make fun of you and your child will love you more!

That is my challenge for you. Raise your children to not become slaves to a system. Raise them to know what it is like to love and not kill. Shut off the violence and kick them outside. How long has it been since you went for a bike ride Mom and Dad? 

“In the 1950s kids lost their innocence.
They were liberated from their parents by well-paying jobs, cars, and lyrics in music that gave rise to a new term —the generation gap.

In the 1960s, kids lost their authority.
It was a decade of protest—church, state, and parents were all called into question and found wanting. Their authority was rejected, yet nothing ever replaced it.

In the 1970s, kids lost their love. It was the decade of me-ism dominated by hyphenated words beginning with self.
Self-image, Self-esteem, Self-assertion….It made for a lonely world. Kids learned everything there was to know about sex and forgot everything there was to know about love, and no one had the nerve to tell them there was a difference.

In the 1980s, kids lost their hope.
Stripped of innocence, authority and love and plagued by the horror of a nuclear nightmare, large and growing numbers of this generation stopped believing in the future.

In the 1990s kids lost their power to reason. Less and less were they taught the very basics of language, truth, and logic and they grew up with the irrationality of a postmodern world.

In the new millennium, kids woke up and found out that somewhere in the midst of all this change, they had lost their imagination. Violence and perversion entertained them till none could talk of killing innocents since none was innocent anymore.” 
― Ravi ZachariasRecapture the Wonder

 

What will we lose with the next generation? When will all of you come out and play? I am waiting for you and I cannot wait to see and meet you!
