Wegman’s is an awesome place to buy groceries. They have a huge selection of organic items and they also have very affordable prices on everyday grocery items. I get lost in the “home and holiday” area, barely making it out without hurting my bank account on some new glasses or plates. I go there to buy balloons for bdays, awesome fruit tarts in the Patisserie and cards and little gifts for people. And I get a few groceries as well.:)
As I was walking by the coffee shop (yes, the grocery store is fab!!!) I noticed the woman in the bakery baking bread with her head wrapped, clearly a Muslim woman. Then I looked at the Sushi bar and saw an Asian woman wrapping sushi, I looked over at the sandwich shop and saw a white guy (American) preparing some subs for the lunch crowd. And I could go through every department and find people from many different religious backgrounds from many different nations. This is the case all over the D.C. metro area and I really do think it is wonderful.
Many races, nationalities, religions working under one roof together in harmony. There was no yelling, or segregation or persecution. People were talking to one another and smiling and interacting (Wegman’s also hires good people) and I thought why the hell can’t the world leaders act this way? So we are letting the WORLD-not just our country, but the WORLD as we know it crumble to pieces because world leaders act like a–holes. I don’t understand why more people are not in the streets everyday protesting about the way our government leaders and other ones around the world are not doing their jobs! I wish that fire could be put under people’s behinds to make them realize that all of the bad things that are happening could be stopped if proper action was taken. If we had proper leadership and they followed laws already on the books. If I were someone with any form of celebrity, I would start a movement of some kind.
We do not need another bureaucratic machine to tell us more things that we already know. We need to just do what makes sense to pretty much anyone with, hmmmmm, I don’t know a fourth grade education. So here is my unsolicited advice. If anyone disagrees, keep moving on. This post is like our country now, an oligarchy. What is mandated will be done, naysayers beware:)
First: Close our borders completely, because we are freaking vulnerable. I can’t help with the amnesty mess, just start with shutting ANYONE from moving into our country for the time being.
Second: Stop giving money to countries that hate us.
Third: Do not create new programs for a free ride for people because we are broke.
Fourth: Make people that do get free housing and food that are physically able work for it in some way.
Fifth: Have a stricter system for deciding who gets assistance and hire people that are educated and intelligent to run the system so that they make smart decisions based on real life scenarios.
For example: my friend desperately needs disability with a stroke and sepsis and can’t work and her electricity is about to get cut off and she is 60 years old!! She gets 200 dollars a month for food and no rent assistance and is selling beloved items to stay alive. So, I am not against help for people that are DESERVING of it.
Sixth: Hire an accountant or 200 because we have no budget!!!
Seventh: Clean out the White House and all of Capitol Hill and start over. FROM SCRATCH…
I would love to be of service to other countries and give them some tips, but I am too aggravated and irritated with our mess to give assistance at this time.When the powers that be grow a brain and use it in the right way, then perhaps I can offer suggestions to other areas of the world.
I am done.
