Very upsetting night. I believe my mom has entered another "phase", possibly the beginnings Of "Sun downers". She shows no drive or interests. She was a voracios reader abt a month ago. she hasn't really touched abook inthe last 2 weeks. Every task is becoming immensly more dificult. Keep her focused on task is becoming more dificult. 
AS a Boy Scout I took an oath "On my honor I will do my best To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; To help other people at all times;To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and mora...lly straight."
I know i fail in the "Duty to God" part but i'm talking abt the "Help other people at all time". I see this as important as the oath that I swore to my country. (and for y'all that know me, You know what that means to me).
I say all of that to say this. I will contiue to take of my mom to the best of my abilities "...I will do my best To do my duty..." to her.
 Abt 5 weeks ago mom got food poisoning (LOis it was my fault and I wont' take nay other answer). She was in the hosp for 5 days. Came home no problem. had to medic-1 a cpl of times, again, no prob. but abt 2 weeks ado I started noticing "cracks". I made little mental notes and left it that. When we went to the doc, i metnioned these things. Now he doesn't live with her 24/7 so he didnt take them as serious as i do. but over the last 2 weeks, the "cracks" getting bigger. She cant stand nearly as long as she could a month ago. She just "gives up". there's no fire to try. IN order to have a serious convo i have to continue say "mom look at me".
maybe I"m jsut having hard time accepting where she is at, i dont know. 
Someone once told me (I think it was Rock Pollard.. not sure); You dont take your pack off until the mission is accomplished. I will never take my pack off, instead I will continue to march.

 I think I need to find pictures from back inthe day (yea, when I was " that kid") and scan them so I can share them. That is still the image i have of my mom in myhead.

I have several entries from August theu the end of November.   The've been setup so only one person bedies myself can see them.
I did that because you asked me to.  Out of respect.   Well, it seems you dont return that same respect.......

Those entries, in the very near futurem are going to be laid open God and the world to see.  I have nothing to hide.
I admit to what I did wrong.   and adress it.  And our mutual freinds will see it all too.
LIke I've said so many times during our fights....   lets tell it all.   
I  believe in "Scorched earth policy".   we can go fown together; I dont care.

When this will happen, I'm not sure yet.  there're things you can do to stop this.  But Im betting you wont.

So, the 1st week of school is down.   very strange how it came abt.  I"m not going into it now.
Ihave one night class on mon and wed. oh well.

I continue to march as I stated before.  I may not be completely "healed" but I am getting there.

I have great friends, including a very special one, and you know who you are.

My dryer heating element had broek this week.  Fun.   But with another freind's help we fixed it.  Thank God.
I would've been sooo dead in the water.

I really hate when when people who say they're your "friend" stop talking to you for no reason they
are willing to share with you.   it just comes to a dead stop.  Thats bullshit.  and childish bullshit at that.

IM mad.   really mad.   not much i can do abt it, but i'm going to journal it anyway.
This being a "single parent to a special need person" sucks some days.   I"ll never let my "person" know that.
The anger comes from a broken promise by another person.  FINE!!!   Ive been dealing with it... i will till the end!
YOu meant to hurt me, but "That which doesnt hurt me, makes me stronger".   I will grow.
The sad thing, you wont.  Not until you deal with your inner demons.  I hope you do.
You'll be a happier person.  and maybe have a successful realtionship.  God knows i tried, hard.

Dont know where tomorrow is going to lead me.  I guess i dont really care right now.
I have to live one day at a time.

A Date Which Will Live in Infamy

December 8, 1941
Yesterday, December 7, 1941 - a date which will live in infamy - the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.

The United States was at peace with that nation and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with its Government and its Emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific. Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in Oahu, the Japanese Ambassador to the United States and his colleague delivered to the Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent American message. While this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or armed attack.

It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time the Japanese Government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace.

The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian Islands has caused severe damage to American naval and military forces. Very many American lives have been lost. In addition American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu.

Yesterday the Japanese Government also launched an attack against Malaya. Last night Japanese forces attacked Hong Kong. Last night Japanese forces attacked Guam. Last night Japanese forces attacked the Philippine Islands. Last night the Japanese attacked Wake Island. This morning the Japanese attacked Midway Island.

Japan has, therefore, undertaken a surprise offensive extending throughout the Pacific area. The facts of yesterday speak for themselves. The people of the United States have already formed their opinions and well understand the implicationsto the very life and safety of our nation.

As Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense.

Always will we remember the character of the onslaught against us. No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory.

I believe I interpret the will of the Congress and of the people when I assert that we will not only defend ourselves to the uttermost but will make very certain that this form of treachery shall never endanger us again.

Hostilities exist. There is no blinking at the fact that our people, our territory and our interests are in grave danger.

With confidence in our armed forces - with the unbounded determination of our people - we will gain the inevitable triumph - so help us God.

I ask that the Congress declare that since the unprovoked and dastardly attack by Japan on Sunday, December seventh, a state of war has existed between the United States and the Japanese Empire.

Nov. 25th, 2010 @ 10:41 am The true story of the first Thanksgiving
http://melvin-udall.livejournal.com/1047334.html (Coutesy of melvin_udall )

The Real Story of Thanksgiving, by Rush Limbaugh, what schools and parents do not teach their children about the pilgrims and the plenty of Thanksgiving.

"Now, you know the usual story of Thanksgiving: They landed. They had no clue where they were, no idea how to feed themselves. The Indians came out, showed 'em how to pop popcorn, fed 'em turkey, saved 'em basically -- and then white European settlers after that basically wiped out the Indian population. It's a horrible example. Not only is that not true, here is the part that's been omitted from what is still today taught as the traditional Thanksgiving story in many schools. 'The original contract the Pilgrims had entered into with their merchant-sponsors in London called for everything they produced to go into a common store,' when they got here, 'and each member of the community was entitled to one common share. All of the land they cleared and the houses they built belong to the community as well.

They were going to distribute it equally. All of the land they cleared and the houses they built belonged to the community as well. ... [William] Bradford, who had become the new governor of the colony, recognized that this form of collectivism was as costly and destructive to the Pilgrims as that first harsh winter, which had taken so many lives. He decided to take bold action."

Nov. 2nd, 2010 @ 10:57 am C-Dependancy
Current Location: United States, Washington, Olympia
Current Mood: sadsad
I got this from a  freind on anoterh social network sight.  

Codependency is about having little or no understanding of where I stop and you start.

I have the inability to take responsibility for my own feelings, thoughts, attitudes, etc., and at the same time believing that I caused your reality.

Codependency is about having a skewed, self-defeating thought process, belief system, and perception of reality and the world; generally formed by the dysfunctional ways we were raised. Recovery is about choosing to view things in a more accurate, positive and effective way.

Codependency is about denial and isolation.
Recovery is about owning my truth, going to meetings, sharing, reaching out, working the steps, and working a program.

Codependency is about reacting to everything that happens to me.
Recovery is about making choices based on self-care and taking action.

Codependency is about numbing my feelings.
Recovery is about learning to celebrate and feel my feelings, even the painful ones.

In one model of Codependency and Recovery, there are five primary symptoms of Codependency:

1. Low Self-Esteem
2. Impaired or Non-Existent Boundaries
3. Problems with Experiencing and Owning Our Reality
4. Inability to Meet Our Needs and Wants
5. Difficulty with Experiencing and Sharing Reality Moderately

Codependents Typically:
Are not aware of how they feel.
Have difficulty in identifying their feelings.
Have difficulty in expressing their feelings.
Tend to minimize, alter, or even deny the truth about how they feel.
Tend to fear and/or worry how others may respond to their feelings.
Give power over their own feelings to others.

Often Codependents:
Are more aware of what others feel.
Allow my serenity to be affected by outside influences
Allow my serenity to be affected by the other person’s struggles.
Allow my serenity to be affected by how others feel.
Condition feeling good about myself on being liked by others
Condition feeling good about myself on receiving approval from others.
Look to other’s feelings in determining what to do or say.

Also, Codependents Generally:
Are not aware of what I want.
Have difficulty in asking for what I want.
Are more concerned with what others want.
Find it easier to ask what others want.
Tend to put other people’s wants and needs before my own.
Look to other people’s wants or desires in determining what to do or say.

I need to guess at what is normal.
I am isolated from and afraid of people and authority figures.
I used to lie when it would be just as easy to tell the truth.
I am an approval seeker and have lost our identity in the process.
I have difficulty having fun.
I am frightened by angry people and personal criticism.
I judge ourselves harshly and have a low sense of self-esteem.
I have dependent personalities who are terrified of abandonment.
I used do anything to hold on to a relationship in order not to experience painful abandonment feelings which we received from living with people who were never there emotionally for us.
I over react to changes over which we do not have any control.
I experience guilt feelings when we stand up for ourselves instead of giving in to others.

Government agents can sneak onto your property in the middle of the night, put a GPS device on the bottom of your car and keep track of everywhere you go. This doesn't violate your Fourth Amendment rights, because you do not have any reasonable expectation of privacy in your own driveway - and no reasonable expectation that the government isn't tracking your movements.

Aug. 10th, 2010 @ 05:01 pm SEIU funnels hundreds of thousands to support state income tax (Initiative 1098)
Tags: ,
Something to think abt for those in the SEIU.


The Service Employees International Union (national and local chapters) has shelled out a combined $520,000 support a new state income tax in the form of Initiative 1098. The union is currently the largest contributor to support the income tax campaign.
Just last week, SEIU's DC headquarters sent a $200,000 contribution to "Washingtonians for education, health and tax relief," the campaign heading up the fight for an income tax. I'm sure I'm not the only one who sees the hilarity in the committee's abuse of the phrase "tax relief." Spin is the name of the game, apparently

Jul. 6th, 2010 @ 07:42 am FOXNews.com - Covered-Up Flag Mural Near Calif. Freeway Restored
Tags: ,

SUNOL, Calif. -- The American flag mural painted on concrete siding above Northern California freeway, then painted over by order of state officials, was returned to its former glory just in time for 4th of July.

The 35-foot long flag had been painted above Interstate 680 in Sunol, in clear view of commuters, by three men after the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington.

Caltrans officials determined last month that it was on state property and ordered it covered with gray paint, igniting a public furor. Two days later, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger apologized to the artists for the officials' decision.

On Saturday, two men decided to restore the mural. Steve Giordano and Jim Gallagher said they thought it was rude of Caltrans officials to cover up the flag right before the 4th of July.

Jan. 7th, 2010 @ 06:21 pm People always talk abt their "Brush w/ fame"...

Well..I wouldn't even call it a brush.  I'm not sure what I'd call it.

Many years ago..I don't know, maybe when i was abt 7 or 8.   My uncle (Harry) was a corrections person (not sure abt title) at the Juvenile hall (aka Donald E. Long home) in Portland, Or. 
While there, he befriended a young teen by the name of "Clay".  Clay had been in and out of ther and so my uncle, being the guy tha he was, offerd to be Clay's foster parent (remember this was like 1974/75/76).  And he became so.    
Clay changed his name to Chris and was adopted by Harry.  So now he was Chris Davison.  Chris Davison was a big problem child.  he'd stolen from my parents.  He attacked my uncle and stolen form him a number of times.  he'd get stoned and drunk. (remember, I lived in a "leave it to Beaver" existence).  My dad, Harry's identical twin brother, never liked Clay/Chris.  He didn't trust him.  He'd worked as a juvenile probation officer in Skamania county in Washington state.  And with good reason.  When I was maybe 5th grade or so, my uncle called dad and told him he needed help.  Clay/chris was beating him, almost puttin him in the hosp.   Dad had him arrested.
More stuff happened.  I don't really remember a lot of it. 
Clay/chris fianlly went inthe navy w/ a friend of his,  He moved in with him not too long after (or was it before) his 18th b-day.   Anyway, Clay/chris didn't make it all the way thru the navy and was discharged; with either a bad conduct or dishonorable discharge (again cant remember for sure).  I think it was over drugs or something.  Anyway he was out, and several times had run ins with the law.

Anyhow , Clay/chris had a little sister.   She liked to ice skate.  In Portland there was a really nice ice rink at the Loyd Center (large mall near downtown).  I forget why, but my uncle took us down there one day to watch her.   its been so long I don't remember the convo at all.  but I did watch her in amazement of her ability.  I couldn't ice skate to save my life (and still cant).

Ok, so this has been a a very roundabout way to get to this point.   Clay/chris's littel sister was none other than Tonya harding.  I've known this for quite awhile.  All i could say to myself when all her drama was going....how sad.

So today I decided to look onthe net to see if there was any mention of Clay/chris.  there is on her website:  http://www.tonyaharding.com/biography.htm 

Back in the early 80s (I think), Clay/chris, who by this time had fathered a child with a woman he was living with, was killed walking home from the store one evening.  He had been hit by a hit-&-run driver.  Another sad ending to an otherwise sad life.

Not real sure why i felt like writing this but I did.  so, there it is.

Dec. 7th, 2009 @ 03:39 pm Retired Lt Col Allen West on Fort Hood Massacre - well stated
I received the following in my email. I"m not one to just send out stuff willy-nilly:

I verified this on Snopes: http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/allenwest.asp

----- I’m quite sure this was the one who should have been the Pres! Damn!!!

The following is a statement released by Retired Lt. Col. Allen West:

Allen West

This past Thursday 13 American Soldiers were killed and another 30 wounded at a horrific mass shooting at US Army installation, Ft Hood Texas. As I watched in horror and then anger I recalled my two years of final service in the Army as a Battalion Commander at Ft Hood, 2002-2004.

My wife and two daughters were stunned at the incident having lived on the post in family housing.

A military installation, whether it is Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine, or Coast Guard, is supposed to be a safe sanctuary for our Warriors and their families. It is intended to provide a home whereby our "Band of Brothers and Sisters" can find solace and bond beyond just the foxhole but as family units.

A military installation is supposed to be a place where our Warriors train for war, to serve and protect our Nation.

Thursday, 5 November 2009 Ft Hood became a part of the battlefield in the war against Islamic totalitarianism and state sponsored terrorism.

There may be those who feel threatened by my words and would even recommend they not be uttered. To those individuals I say step aside because now is not the time for cowardice. Our Country has become so paralyzed by political correctness that we have allowed a vile and determined enemy to breach what should be the safest place in
America, an Army post.

We have become so politically correct that our media is more concerned about the stress of the shooter, Major Nidal Malik Hasan. The misplaced benevolence intending to portray him as a victim is despicable. The fact that there are some who have now created an entire new classification called; "pre-virtual vicarious Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)" is unconscionable.

This is not a "man caused disaster". It is what it is, an Islamic jihadist attack.

We have seen this before in 2003 when a SGT Hasan of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) threw hand grenades and opened fire into his Commanding Officer's tent in Kuwait. We have seen the foiled attempt of Albanian Muslims who sought to attack Ft Dix, NJ. Recently we saw a young convert to Islam named Carlos Bledsoe travel to Yemen, receive terrorist training, and return to gun down two US Soldiers at a Little Rock, Arkansas Army recruiting station. We thwarted another Islamic terrorist plot in North Carolina which had US Marine Corps Base, Quantico as a target.

What have we done with all these prevalent trends? Nothing.

What we see are recalcitrant leaders who are refusing to confront the issue, Islamic terrorist infiltration into
America, and possibly further into our Armed Services. Instead we have a multiculturalism and diversity syndrome on steroids.

Major Hasan should have never been transferred to Ft Hood, matter of fact he should have been Chaptered from the Army. His previous statements, poor evaluation reports, and the fact that the FBI had him under investigation for jihadist website posting should have been proof positive.

However, what we have is a typical liberal approach to find a victim, not the 13 and 30 Soldiers and Civilian, but rather the poor shooter. A shooter who we are told was a great American, who loved the Army and serving his Nation and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) stating that his actions had nothing to do with religious belief.

We know that Major Hasan deliberately planned this episode; he did give away his

possessions. He stood atop a table in the confined space of the Soldier Readiness Center shouting "Allahu Akhbar", same chant as the 9-11 terrorists and those we fight against overseas in the Iraq and Afghanistan theaters of operation.

No one in leadership seems willing to sound the alarm for the American people; they are therefore complicit in any future attacks. Our Congress should suspend the insidious action to vote on a preposterous and unconstitutional healthcare bill and resolve the issue of "protecting the American people".

The recent incidents in
Dearborn Michigan, Boston Massachusetts, Dallas Texas, and Chicago Illinois should bear witness to the fact that we have an Islamic terrorism issue in America. And don't have CAIR call me and try to issue a vanilla press statement; they are an illegitimate terrorist associated organization which should be disbanded.

We have
Saudi Arabia funding close to 80% of the mosques in the United States, one right here in South Florida, Pompano Beach. Are we building churches and synagogues in Saudi Arabia? Are "Kaffirs" and "Infidels" allowed travel to Mecca?

So much for peaceful coexistence.

Saudi Arabia is sponsoring radical Imams who enter into our prisons and convert young men into a virulent Wahabbist ideology..one resulting in four individuals wanting to destroy synagogues in New York with plastic explosives. Thank God the explosives were dummy. They are sponsoring textbooks which present Islamic centric revisionist history in our schools.

We must recognize that there is an urgent need to separate the theo-political radical Islamic ideology out of our American society. We must begin to demand surveillance of suspected Imams and mosques that are spreading hate and preaching the overthrow of our
Constitutional Republic..that speech is not protected under First Amendment, it is sedition and if done by an American treason.

There should not be some 30 Islamic terrorist training camps in
America that has nothing to do with First Amendment, Freedom of Religion. The Saudis are not our friends and any American political figure who believes such is delusional.

When tolerance becomes a one way street it certainly leads to cultural suicide. We are on that street Liberals cannot be trusted to defend our Republic, because their sympathies obviously lie with their perceived victim, Major Nidal Malik Hasan.

I make no apologies for these words, and anyone angered by them, please, go to Ft Hood and look into the eyes of the real victims. The tragedy at Ft Hood
Texas did not have to happen. Consider now the feelings of those there and on every military installation in the world. Consider the feelings of the Warriors deployed into combat zones who now are concerned that their loved ones at home are in a combat zone.

Ft Hood suffered an Islamic jihadist attack, stop the denial, and realize a simple point.
The reality of your enemy must become your own.

Steadfast and Loyal,

Lieutenant Colonel Allen B West (US Army, Ret)

Charge Sheets Released for Three Accused Sailors

From Special Operations Command, Central Public Affairs

MACDILL AFB, Fla. (NNS) -- In September 2009, evidence of possible detainee abuse came to light at a Forward Operating Base in Iraq.

Upon receipt of this evidence, Special Operations Command Central (SOCCENT) initiated an investigation which was conducted by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.

Based upon the evidence uncovered in this investigation, three Sailors were accused of making false official statements with the intent to deceive the investigator and dereliction of duty for failing to safeguard a detainee who was in their custody.

One of the three Sailors has been charged with assaulting the detainee after the prisoner had been apprehended and while he was in their custody at the base.

Another has been charged with an additional offense of impeding an investigation by unlawfully attempting to influence a witness in the investigation.

At the conclusion of the investigation, the three Sailors were offered non-judicial punishment as a means of resolving the allegations. All three Sailors exercised their right under Article 15 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice to refuse the administrative punishment. After this refusal, the attached charges were then referred to Special Courts-martial.

The Sailors are presumed innocent unless and until they are proven guilty at Courts-martial. The charges against the accused are merely accusations. SOCCENT is committed to ensuring that the Constitutional rights of the accused are protected and to maintaining good order and discipline.

Two of the Sailors are scheduled to be arraigned on Dec. 7 beginning at 9 a.m. at the Regional Legal Service Office at Naval Station Norfolk, Va. The proceeding is scheduled to last one hour.

The third Sailor's arraignment has not been scheduled. Trial dates are tentatively scheduled for mid-January 2010 at Naval Station Norfolk.

SOCCENT is the convening authority.

It would be inappropriate to comment further on a case that is currently in the pre-trial phase.
