The Lives of Black People Matter

I want to start this off by saying “Yes, the Lives of Black People Matter”
The children of color matter. They deserve a life without fear of gangs and warfare in their neighborhoods.  They deserve an education that will allow them to prosper and grow to achieve their dreams.

They deserve to not be looked at as the color of their skin, but as the equals they are.

But the organization ‘Black Lives Matter’ does not really care about Black People.

They are an organization of people that are paid well by the George Soros organization to cause upheaval and disruption. They are not the protestors.  They are an organization meant to drive the wedge of hate amongst the people.  To divide us as humans and a Nation.

If BLM truly cared they would not be spouting hate at people and police. They would not be destroying the businesses of innocent hard working people of all races. Vandalizing  and burning the cities.

Bringing up the darkness of the past, that was ugly, will not make the future brighter.

If the Lives of the Black People truly mattered to BLM they would be in the city ghettos and the poor side of town helping the children and the people. Working with the police to clean up the neighborhoods. Mentoring the young, teaching a better way.  Showing them how to achieve and work toward  a life of good choices so they can reach their dreams.

They could be helping the young to succeed and work creating mentoring programs and helping by working  to get them the  education needed to get ahead and be able to look forward for a better tomorrow.

There is no one arguing that what happened in Minnesota was right. It was not.  And yes, there are some bad police out there. But there are a majority of good police, that do care, and want to help.

Anger and rioting is not the answer.  It fixes nothing. It closes minds, creates the racism and fear. That is not protesting. That is breaking the law. And should be dealt with as such.

There is a confusion amongst most people. BLM organization and “The Lives of Black People Mattering” is not the same thing. It is not.   They are two different groups of people some peacefully protesting, And the other dividing and destroying the hope for the future by exploiting the needs of their own people.

Don’t let the bad people destroy what is good about our country.  Don’t let the media, and the far left socialists  guide you as some blind sheep being lead by wolves.  Because this in not who we are as a race of People.

We are all Better Than This.

Pennies on the Dollar

I know sometimes I watch too much TV.  Or should I say listen to too much TV.. I seldom just sit and watch it.. There are just to many things to get done to actually sit and watch it.. Well anyway….

I was listening and turning down the volume of the usual blast of loud commercials when I heard one that really bothered me.. “Do you owe over $10.000 to the government in tax debt.. If you do we could settle your tax debt for just pennies on the dollar…”

What.. pennies on the dollar? and they made enough money to have to pay $10,000 dollars in taxes.. And now I hear they won’t even have to pay most of them.. Why the heck not?  I have to pay mine. Everyone I know struggling or not has to pay theirs.  How come some fancy TV advertising lawyer can get some rich person standing in front of a near million dollar home out of paying most of their taxes.. “And we didn’t even have to lose our home”  Well, Yea Rah! for them. I’d be standing there smiling like a cheshire cat too if I just got the tax people to say “okay, hey don’t worry about it..

Every year the little guy like me pays my couple thousand to Uncle Sam.  Struggling to pay them religiously out of our paychecks.  Heaven forbid I am even late in paying the couple hundred that they didn’t get from my pay. For a  $70 mistake my tax prepared did on my taxes one year, they put a lien on my house with threat of selling it at public auction within months of the error. Seventy dollars and they were going to garnish our wages and sell our house and not let us tag our cars.. And these people who owe tens of thousands of dollars are not going to have to pay most of theirs..  What is wrong with this picture?

What makes them so special?  Why do my taxes that I have t pay go up every year and they are giving tax relief forgivemess to enough people that they have a commercial to target them?  Is that fair?

I still think of that little mistake my tax preparer made everytime I see that commercial and it makes me mad all over again. Of course I had a smile on my face when I found out it was a computer glitch that didn’t calculate the taxes correctly for our area at the good old IRS.. It took several months of worrying about losing our house and having to repay what we didn’t owe in the first place to keep them from putting a lein on the house and cars. Then we get a letter with a check saying, oh sorry our mistake here is your check back..  (paraphrasing of course, but you get the gist)

Maybe,  instead of this obvious, generous amount of people who owe the IRS huge amounts of back taxes being forgiven, they had to pay their taxes like the rest of us hard working middle and lower class americans, we wouldn’t have to watch our taxes go up, yet again, next year.

What is wrong with America???.
