Relationships VERSUS Dictatorships and How to Know the Difference....

 Hello!  Welcome back to "Colorado Kimmie" and Happy New Year!  This is actually my first post for 2023.  I've been working on a few other posts, but they're just not quite done yet.  And, I wanted to get some content shared, so I hope this resonates with a reader who has some good goals for finding love in 2023.  This post is meant as a guide for you, because I'm rooting for anyone open to love!

First, I want to share that I've been guilty of it in a good majority of my dating life:  dating without purpose.  If you are someone who dates without a purpose or any goal, just beware that you can become stuck in relationship purgatory.  YES dating should be fun!  But, void of goals or purpose or communicating what you desire out of the relationship (or any grounding), you're more likely to become a feather in the wind blowing around, not setting healthy boundaries for yourself, and not seeing signs of relationship doom (when to cut slingload, abort mission and save your precious time).  

What exactly makes for a healthy relationship?  To me, it's awareness, dealing with conflict in a respectful way, sharing values, and mutual connection (admiration and growing TOWARDS each other).  Yes, I'm writing this for anyone (man or woman) who is seeking a mutually respectful long-term relationship in 2023.  

The first thing to remember is that words are only words.  Someone can tell you they love you and respect you; however, actions and patterns show how much someone truly feels about you as a long-term relationship partner.  I'm about to lay out some major red flags that indicate you're in a dictatorship in which one person is only seeking dominance/control of you.  It's easy to become fooled because many of these dictatorships begin with adoration and then slowly turn up the abuse.  But soon you experience the devaluation stage and then the final discard  which make you feel like trash.  

Please note, I'm not a licensed counselor/therapist and my blog legal disclaimer outlines that my posts are merely for entertainment purposes.  However, at 43 I feel like I have enough life experience, interpersonal and psychology interest, and dating under my belt to be able to share what I consider to be major red flags.  As soon as you detect these, please do not discount them as a "one off" happenstance.  Speak up immediately to address the concerns.  The healthiest relationships are not the ones with zero conflict.  The power couples are actually the teams that know how to have healthy discourse and build and get through conflict.  On the flip side, the couples who don't last are the ones who never face conflict, stonewall the other, and hold grudges and silent treatments.

By addressing these things, you allow your partner to see and have self-awareness.  However, if you address these and patterns immediately reemerge, you should RUN, not walk away from the disrespectful dictatorship.  Most importantly, a healthy relationship should never be about losing yourself.  Nothing that is FOR you will require you to sacrifice your lovely unique self, take away your voice, or tear away at your freedoms.  

So let's jump in to red flags...(and to me these are all non-negotiables)

Name Calling:

This is any name calling whatsoever.  Whether it's "Annoying," "Stupid," "Crazy," name calling does nothing to build towards you.  To the contrary, it pushes you away.  A lot of times it's followed with, "Can't you take a joke?"  "You're too sensitive!"  Not only does name calling do absolutely nothing to resolve conflict, it actually causes more of it!  

Constantly interrupts you, belittles you, silences you, talks down to you like you're a child, or gives you the look (usually eye roll), mainly shuts you down:

This behavior indicates that they don't really give a shit about anything you think.  Sorry not to sugar coat it, but you need to hear this.  If you are sharing something you are passionate about and you get shut down by statements like "I don't care," that's not only rude and inconsiderate, it's a clear indication that the person is not seeking connection TOWARDS you, but only dominance and control OVER you.  Further, a really intimidated + insecure partner silences a voice of truth or passion.  Any partner who is working towards a connection with you will never take away your voice or freedoms of expression. Ever!  In fact what you'll find out is if you stick around long enough - what they think is always more important that what you think.  You'll even find them bringing up the exact same topics they didn't want to hear you speak about, because it's only important when they talk about it.

No independence:

Controlling or crazy jealous behavior!  If they question every time you're on your phone EVEN when they're doing something else as well, it's a flag.  Any controlling or jealous tendencies indicate that they are internalizing some major trust issues from the past and projecting them onto you.  A healthy mature relationship has complete trust.  A lot of women, especially, will take trust issues as flattery at first, but it's not.  And, it gets progressively worse.  It is not your job to remedy these deep rooted trust issues.  They need to be in a therapist's chair.  In fact, I read somewhere that a lot of people are in therapy to heal from those who refuse to go to therapy.  Is that not ironic?  If there is no trust, RUN - FLAG!

Use your insecurities or vulnerabilities against you:

When you share a painful part of your past or open up about anything that requires a level of vulnerability and this information in turn, is melted down into bullets to shoot back at you?  That's just mean spirited!  This is belittling and hurtful and definitely not building any connections towards you.  It's a major FLAG!

Calling all the shots and never consulting with you:

Suddenly you find yourself having all plans made for you without deciding together.  It's never anything you want to do, EVER!  Your personal interests and suggestions or ideas about what to do are often discarded.

Overly Critical and Extreme Highs and Lows:

You never feel like you're good enough!  The benchmark is always moved.  Even when you're trying to do a favor, you are criticized for doing it wrong.  One minute you get this hot feeling and the next minute a really cold feeling.  It's not only mixed signals, it's not knowing which person you're going to get so you end up being pensive with a sick nervous system because you feel like you're constantly walking on eggshells and they could explode at any moment.

Telling you how you should feel as opposed to validating how YOU truly feel:

This behavior indicates legit ZERO self awareness.  If you're constantly  being told "It's no big deal," "you're taking it wrong," "you're too sensitive," and just they are constantly invalidating how something made you feel, it's showing zero connection.  The cold truth:  Someone can demonstrate zero interest to understand you, EVEN when you're by their side sitting right next to them.  You are just a warm body next to them who they can dominate and control.

Silent Treatment:

Silent treatments are immature, rude, dysfunctional, and manipulative to the core!  This behavior includes turning away from you while you're talking or texting about your feelings and is completley devoid of any loving connection  Refusing to talk or engage with you, also known as stonewalling someone, keeps any issue in constant gridlock and never resolved.  It's selfish and a complete power move.  Even worse, they can't talk about any emotions and refuse to acknowledge your emotions every single time conflict arises.  FLAG!

Lying:

It doesn't matter what kind of lie it is or if it's a little white lie.  Gaslighting is the biggest concern - when you bring up something that was said and it's outright denied.  Gaslighting will eventually make you question your own sanity!  FLAG!

Do any of these sound familiar and maybe patterns of flags you're not picking up or noticing?

Hopefully this post is helpful too you on your 2023 dating journey.  If I've missed any important ones, leave me a comment below.  You've got this, and I'm rooting for you!  Dating requires you to get out of your comfort zone, be authentic, and be vulnerable.  Pay attention to your gut, your nervous system, and how you personally feel around a potential life partner.  Don't discount red flag behavior.  Behavior, not words, is the true indication of how they feel about you.  Most importantly, the right person will make you fall in love with yourself too!  

Love, 

Kimmie

Why We Can't Read Cool Books Anymore...

Good day to you!  

I wanted to squeeze in one more blog in 2022 and I'll just start by mentioning one name...Mary Phagan.  Ever heard of her?  The name was vaguely familiar to me as a child, and it turns out my Great Aunt Mattie played this song on the piano when I came to visit as a child.  Honestly, I don't think I ever paid attention to the lyrics, but I can still hear her sing the name "Mary Phagan":  

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jmdGO3lqQeE                                         

or this version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nHuNnexwdPs

Kinda creepy, no?

I would venture to say MOST people who were the product of public schoolling (like me) and who have been in the process of unlearning indoctrinations and all the lies we were told in this standardizing institution called public school  (such as - Kennedy was assasinated by a random lone gunman - which has recently been proven to be a BIG lie by our government) - we never, ever heard of Mary Phagan, unless you had a cool great aunt give you piano lessons.  What about the name Leo Max Frank?  Ring a bell?  These are names you should know in order to understand why so many books are banned in our country!

Mary Phagaan

Let me start back in 1913.  Thirteen year old Mary Phagan was on her way to a patriotic parade on Confederate Memorial Day all festively dressed and ready to have a good time.  Before attending the events, she swung by her place of employment at The National Pencil Company in Atlanta, Georgia to pick up her paycheck from her boss, Leo Max Frank, a wealthy Jew.  The paycheck was a whopping $1.20 (adjusted for inflation in 2022, it would be $36.09) for her child labor services.  While at the factory that day (in the middle of the day - broad daylight outside), she was attacked, her panties ripped (more than likely an attempt to sexually abuse her), and she was eventually found dead and mutilated in the basement of the factory.

Leo Max Frank

Initially and early into the investigation there were several suspects (pretty much anyone at the factory that day), but eventually the superintendent of the factory, Leo Max Frank was found guilty by a jury of his peers and sentenced to hang for Mary's brutal murder.  

However, before Frank was to meet his death sentence, the outgoing Governor of Georgia commuted Frank's death sentence from death by hanging to life in prison (still acknowledging guilt but because he was Jewish, a lighter sentence was decided - and this was 30 years BEFORE the Holocaust).  This was mostly as a result of the Jewish community sizably financing campaigns (and, because Frank belonged to a huge Jewish fraternal order).  But, Mary Phagan's community was LIVID after hearing of the commuted sentence.  They broke into the jail and dragged Frank out of his cell and lynched him outside. 

The Jewish community was OUTRAGED.  How could this happen?  And, they demanded justice.  One major outcome of the lynching was the formation of a non-profit called the Jewish Antidefamation League, or the ADL for short.  This organization is responsible for banning A WHOLE LOT of books in this country.  Why?  Well, the narrative was, at the time, that BOTH the trial and the subsequent lynching were a result of antisemitic rhetoric.

Even today, Frank's innocence is still strongly advocated.  President Biden even exclaimed Frank's innocence.  But, is Frank's alleged innocence a result of actual FACTS or century-old Jewish propaganda?  After the full blown investigation, it came down to two men who could have possibly brutally murdered Mary, and Frank was one of them.  Frank had a reputation as well!  It was said he was condescending, miserly, and sexist.  He was a horrible person!  So these things don’t make you a murderer, but it sure as shit doesn’t paint doesn’t paint anyone in a good light.  So, let’s dive into the facts!

Here is a link to some of the facts presented at the trial and backed by eye witnesses: https://nationalvanguard.org/2013/04/100-reasons-proving-leo-frank-is-guilty/.

Now to the aftermath of this lynching: the OG cancel culture! Let's take a look at the list of books banned by the ADL:  I bet you thought I'd be posting a link here but, JUST KIDDING!  The ADL won't even reveal the exponentially longer than life list of books they banned from schools and bookstores!  Hear me out!  This is just a general rule of thumb: if a book is banned, you need to try to find to it and read it and decide for yourself why the ADL banned it!  There’s one book on the list that I can’t even mention here, because the ADL would blacklist me from society.

Since 1913, there have been several critics question the organization's mantra "to fight antisemitism and all forms of bigotry," the legitimacy of the organization, and potential underlying motives, especially since the organization has since grown into a mega-powerhouse as one of the most powerful socio-political organizations weilding a lot of influential power in the USA and across the globe.  Yet they only contribute to one political party of censorship.  

My brother visiting the graveside of Mary Phagan…

The more ya know!  Happy New Year!

Love, 

Kimmie

Go Broncos!

 Merry Christmas (a few days late)!

So a little back story…

In a pretty massive quarterback deal, the Broncos purchased Russell Wilson (from the Seattle Seahawks) in an agreement that reached a five year extension in a $245 million contract that includes a $165 million GUARANTEE!  I had no idea pro football players raked in this kind of dough!  Oh but the guarantee…this means if Wilson breaks a leg or can’t play for any reason, he is guaranteed to “walk” away with $165 million - without even playing or throwing a football!  A whopping $296 million and 7 years now tie the knot with Russell and the Broncs!

So what’s all the bitching and belly moaning about?  Well, turns out Wilson can’t play in this elevation, and apparently the contract was executed before seeing this athlete in action in the Mile High city!  I scored amazing tickets to a game to see what all the horse whining was about, but Russell wasn’t even playing this game!  A second string Canadian QB brought in a big win for Denver! 

Here are some pics of my $400 a seat club level Mile High Empower Stadium trip against Arizona Cardinals:


I sat next to a ginger tribe member! 


Bronco dude dancing it out above the scoreboard…

Nice warm fireplace by the bar…with club level seating you could come inside the “club” and warm up!

Some copter action…

Loved this van!

What’s a stadium experience without the ice cream of the future…Dippin’ Dots…


Panorama view with this biscuit eater…

Denver actually played well!!


Club level Carolina pork bbw at G-Que …these are the bbq pork nachos only they were already out of tortilla chips and made these on top of kettle chips…oh…my….God.



And, did I mention the Broncos took the WIN!!!!  Overall this was a great first experience for me!  Not only was this my first Denver Broncos game, but this was my first NFL game ever!  I also learned the NFL is split into American and National leagues just like baseball!  Who knew!?  I love life and continually learning new things.

Love,

The Military-Industrial...It's Complex!

Wow, mid/December already?  Where has this year gone??

Hiking up to Mother Cabrini’s Shrine here in Colorado!

And, could it get even crazier?  Yes.  Big Pharma admitted the vaccine never prevented the contraction AND/OR transmission of COVID-19 right after millions of Americans lost their employment for refusing to inject an experimental drug into their arms!  I mean we’re dealing with novel spike proteins (messenger RNA with zero clinical trials and furthermore these companies are making billions off this stuff with zero liability, completely exonerated - all while the People who are making the rules are invested in the stock.  It’s wronger than two little boys kissin’ in church.  Have you wondered why there are so many airline delays?  Are you completely glossing over we fired thousands of airline pilots for refusing experimental medicine?  We never had these problems before.  You plan on it now…to sleep in airlines.  

And, even crazier, AFTER those two bold-faced lies, many Americans still are hanging on to third lie that the vaccine is boldly working as a therapeutic - something that doesn’t completely prevent but reduces symptoms (which isn't even the definition of a vaccine).   I mean WTF is it?  Have you ever seen a flu vaccine that required ongoing boosters!?  And most people who have gotten the vaccine are catching Covid at a higher rate and more often than unvaccinated because they’re immunity has been suppressed.  Don’t believe me?  Biden has had every shot under the moon and THE best healthcare and he has still contracted it three times that we know of.  Oh well, he can’t smell little girls’ hair.  I mean if Trump had sniffed just one little girls’ hair the Left would be burning down City blocks.  We aren’t ready to talk about sudden death, paralysis, myocarditis, Bell’s Palsy, seizures, shingles…JUST as long as it’s not Covid, we don’t care!  How will historians judge this absurd stupidity.  We trade in a stroke for a sore throat.

So why are people reluctant to admit they were wrong?  When it’s so obvious.  Why keep gaslighting people like me that smelled the bullshit from the 30th floor.  You're just not ready to apologize yet to your family and friends for being a complete ass hat and putting full faith in a shady/unscrupulous industry that makes money off you being sick?  Google these companies’ stock prices if you don’t believe me - from 2019 to current.  And, full allegiance to a short little prick who wouldn't know science if it hit him in his dick, and the almighty dollar, of course.  He even went against his own science when the money was right.  And, to this day no one knows exactly what amount of royalties Fauci got for promoting the jab.  But, we DO know he announced his retirement as THE highest paid government official in America this year - because he’s not only filthy rich but he knows the House is about to go Republican and more than likely start investigations into his practices!  Even China is admitting openly now that Fauci helped to fund gain-of-function research on Covid-19.  Gain-of-function is a fancy word for HE HELPED FUND BIOLOGICAL warfare to get Orange Man out   All with your tax dollars.  I think it goes without saying all sane people right now would trade in Orange man for the shit show the past three years!

The Warren Commission papers just revealed that the CIA played a major role in the assassination of JFK.  And, we have another highly suspicious election under our belts.  What happened to the days of paper ballots and learning the victor THE NIGHT OF THE ELECTION??  We are now in the age of ballot harvesting, chasing, muling and other unethical activity we don’t even know about yet.   And think about this:  we have been bombarded for the past two years by the Left on how popular Biden is and that he legitimately got the most votes of any Upright walking animal in the Universe AND is doing unequivocally THE best job of any US President in history (because the mainstream media tells us so, you see) - YET they wanna replace this guy now in 2024!?!  I went to public school in Tennessee but there’s this saying “you don’t fix what’s not broken!”  Recap- just in case you slept during civics, there’s these things called the Primaries.  Biden lost Iowa, New Hampshire and SC is debatable.  And he hid in his basement and never campaigned - and when he did he was licking ice cream and petting small children.  This is the cherry on the sundae…he had brain surgery in 1989 and failed the third grade.  You’d never see this among dolphins or elephants.  Only humans would allow the dumbest and weakest leading the population.

While 2022 has been as equally a shit show as the preceding years, I believe more and more people are understanding one thing to be true: A scary and unstoppable military-industrial complex.

The military-industrial complex...what is it, exactly?  Is it a secret cabal/"Deep State" within our own government?  A complex that secretly runs everything keeping us in perpetual war with each other? Multiple governments working as one?  Who or what was Eisenhauer warning us about in his farewell speech?  It seems as though this past US President is foreshadowing a perpetual war in which this machine or complex not only sells/manufactures/distributes guns, bombs, steel, viruses/germs, and armaments, but it controls both sides and make a lot of money in the process.  In Alabama, there is a factory that makes missiles that are being shipped to the Ukraine.  And each one sells for hundreds of thousands of dollars.  Yet they’re not being sold - they’re being gifted courtesy of your tax dollars.  Are you ready to list Ukraine as your dependent on your next tax refund?  I’m sure you could count Vladimir the wheat farmer or Helga, the potassium miner as a dependent.  Getting back to Alabama, while we are helping Washington, DC and the military industrial-complex who has them on strings launder money through a Ukrainian war, meanwhile people in Alabama are living in Lean-to’s covered with tarps to keep the rain water out.  But if you sell missiles, you like war - not housing Americans or civil engineering projects.  After all, when you’re a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

Have you come out of the coma (both institutional and public school indoctrinations) to realize that our country and our world is ruled and operated by a handful of puppet masters who draw country lines, party lines, and have been modernized, incentivized and globalized post WWII? Yes, our elected leaders are nothing short of puppets on strings.  Again, let's look to what Dwight Eisenhauer, who saved us from WWII (the most tragic loss of life in an Industrial Age), warned the entire country about in the post-Nazi era right on the heels of a Soviet takeover.  He speaks to a New World Order he actually helped create, and then was allegedly rushed off to the Palm Springs Airport!  

In a speech lasting roughly 10 minutes given on January 17, 1961, given from the Oval Office, Americans were shocked to hear President Eisenhauer's strong warnings of a Military-Industrial Complex, also described as a necessary help evil (note: I decided to include the entire farewell speech as opposed to excerpts, because everyone should read this.  And, instead of highlighting the warnings, I wanted you to find them for yourself):

My fellow Americans:

Three days from now, after half a century in the service of our country, I shall lay down the responsibilities of office as, in traditional and solemn ceremony, the authority of the Presidency is vested in my successor.

This evening I come to you with a message of leave-taking and farewell, and to share a few final thoughts with you, my countrymen.

Like every other citizen, I wish the new President, and all who will labor with him, Godspeed. I pray that the coming years will be blessed with peace and prosperity for all.

Our people expect their President and the Congress to find essential agreement on issues of great moment, the wise resolution of which will better shape the future of the Nation.

My own relations with the Congress, which began on a remote and tenuous basis when, long ago, a member of the Senate appointed me to West Point, have since ranged to the intimate during the war and immediate post-war period, and, finally, to the mutually interdependent during these past eight years.

In this final relationship, the Congress and the Administration have, on most vital issues, cooperated well, to serve the national good rather than mere partisanship, and so have assured that the business of the Nation should go forward. So, my official relationship with the Congress ends in a feeling, on my part, of gratitude that we have been able to do so much together.

(pause)

We now stand ten years past the midpoint of a century that has witnessed four major wars among great nations. Three of these involved our own country. Despite these holocausts America is today the strongest, the most influential and most productive nation in the world. Understandably proud of this pre-eminence, we yet realize that America's leadership and prestige depend, not merely upon our unmatched material progress, riches and military strength, but on how we use our power in the interests of world peace and human betterment.

(pause)

Throughout America's adventure in free government, our basic purposes have been to keep the peace; to foster progress in human achievement, and to enhance liberty, dignity and integrity among people and among nations. To strive for less would be unworthy of a free and religious people. Any failure traceable to arrogance, or our lack of comprehension or readiness to sacrifice would inflict upon us grievous hurt both at home and abroad.

Progress toward these noble goals is persistently threatened by the conflict now engulfing the world. It commands our whole attention, absorbs our very beings. We face a hostile ideology-global in scope, atheistic in character, ruthless in purpose, and insidious in method. Unhappily the danger it poses promises to be of indefinite duration. To meet it successfully, there is called for, not so much the emotional and transitory sacrifices of crisis, but rather those which enable us to carry forward steadily, surely, and without complaint the burdens of a prolonged and complex struggle-with liberty at stake. Only thus shall we remain, despite every provocation, on our charted course toward permanent peace and human betterment.

Crises there will continue to be. In meeting them, whether foreign or domestic, great or small, there is a recurring temptation to feel that some spectacular and costly action could become the miraculous solution to all current difficulties. A huge increase in newer elements of our defense; development of unrealistic programs to cure every ill in agriculture; a dramatic expansion in basic and applied research-these and many other possibilities, each possibly promising in itself, may be suggested as the only way to the road we wish to travel.

But each proposal must be weighed in the light of a broader consideration: the need to maintain balance in and among national programs-balance between the private and the public economy, balance between cost and hoped for advantage-balance between the clearly necessary and the comfortably desirable; balance between our essential requirements as a nation and the duties imposed by the nation upon the individual; balance between action of the moment and the national welfare of the future. Good judgment seeks balance and progress; lack of it eventually finds imbalance and frustration.

The record of many decades stands as proof that our people and their government have, in the main, understood these truths and have responded to them well, in the face of stress and threat. But threats, new in kind or degree, constantly arise. I mention two only.

(pause) 

A vital element in keeping the peace is our military establishment. Our arms must be mighty, ready for instant action, so that no potential aggressor may be tempted to risk his own destruction.

Our military organization today bears little relation to that known by any of my predecessors in peace time, or indeed by the fighting men of World War II or Korea.

Until the latest of our world conflicts, the United States had no armaments industry. American makers of plowshares could, with time and as required, make swords as well. But now we can no longer risk emergency improvisation of national defense; we have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportions. Added to this, three and a half million men and women are directly engaged in the defense establishment. We annually spend on military security more than the net income of all United State corporations.

This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence-economic, political, even spiritual-is felt in every city, every state house, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.

Akin to, and largely responsible for the sweeping changes in our industrial-military posture, has been the technological revolution during recent decades.

In this revolution, research has become central; it also becomes more formalized, complex, and costly. A steadily increasing share is conducted for, by, or at the direction of, the Federal government.

Today, the solitary inventor, tinkering in his shop, has been over shadowed by task forces of scientists in laboratories and testing fields. In the same fashion, the free university, historically the fountainhead of free ideas and scientific discovery, has experienced a revolution in the conduct of research. Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity. For every old blackboard there are now hundreds of new electronic computers.

The prospect of domination of the nation's scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded.

Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.

It is the task of statesmanship to mold, to balance, and to integrate these and other forces, new and old, within the principles of our democratic system-ever aiming toward the supreme goals of our free society.

(pause)

Another factor in maintaining balance involves the element of time. As we peer into society's future, we-you and I, and our government-must avoid the impulse to live only for today, plundering, for our own ease and convenience, the precious resources of tomorrow. We cannot mortgage the material assets of our grandchildren without risking the loss also of their political and spiritual heritage. We want democracy to survive for all generations to come, not to become the insolvent phantom of tomorrow.

(pause) 

Down the long lane of the history yet to be written America knows that this world of ours, ever growing smaller, must avoid becoming a community of dreadful fear and hate, and be, instead, a proud confederation of mutual trust and respect.

Such a confederation must be one of equals. The weakest must come to the conference table with the same confidence as do we, protected as we are by our moral, economic, and military strength. That table, though scarred by many past frustrations, cannot be abandoned for the certain agony of the battlefield.

Disarmament, with mutual honor and confidence, is a continuing imperative. Together we must learn how to compose difference, not with arms, but with intellect and decent purpose. Because this need is so sharp and apparent I confess that I lay down my official responsibilities in this field with a definite sense of disappointment. As one who has witnessed the horror and the lingering sadness of war-as one who knows that another war could utterly destroy this civilization which has been so slowly and painfully built over thousands of years-I wish I could say tonight that a lasting peace is in sight.

Happily, I can say that war has been avoided. Steady progress toward our ultimate goal has been made. But, so much remains to be done. As a private citizen, I shall never cease to do what little I can to help the world advance along that road.

(pause) 

So-in this my last good night to you as your President-I thank you for the many opportunities you have given me for public service in war and peace. I trust that in that service you find somethings worthy; as for the rest of it, I know you will find ways to improve performance in the future.

You and I-my fellow citizens-need to be strong in our faith that all nations, under God, will reach the goal of peace with justice. May we be ever unswerving in devotion to principle, confident but humble with power, diligent in pursuit of the Nation's great goals.

To all the peoples of the world, I once more give expression to America's prayerful and continuing inspiration:

We pray that peoples of all faiths, all races, all nations, may have their great human needs satisfied; that those now denied opportunity shall come to enjoy it to the full; that all who yearn for freedom may experience its spiritual blessings; that those who have freedom will understand, also, its heavy responsibilities; that all who are insensitive to the needs of others will learn charity; that the scourges of poverty, disease and ignorance will be made to disappear from the earth, and that, in the goodness of time, all peoples will come to live together in a peace guaranteed by the binding force of mutual respect and love.

(end)

Now take a quick moment of silence to compare this eloquent Presidential speech to the incoherent mumblings of Biden.  Seriously, YouTube any of these for comparison!

Final note from author:  


I strongly believe most Americans are all about supporting the weak and the marginalized, within reason! However, when does it become fair that less than 1% of the population, roughly 8,000,000,000 people and growing, constantly make the sweeping decisions for the rest of us?  And, just how weak and marginalized is this 1% when fake and manufactured story after story emerged from our Main Stream Media?  And when will the rest of America wake up to the fact that our media is controlled by the Military-Industrial Complex right down to the exact repetitive buzz words you hear on every single station like a broken record?  After all, as Joseph Goebbels, a Nazi propagandist discovered: “Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth!”

I fear not death just the manner in which it comes.

"Who Hurt You, Kimmie?"..."My Own Expectations"

 Hey Pals! 

I hope you had an excellent Thanksgiving (my favorite holiday of the entire year as a bonafide foodie).  Plus I got to cuddle with two little Ewoks (shih tzus) for a week straight!  It was heaven.  Now I understand why these are emotional support dogs.

Walking down by the Mississippi River at Mud Island and looking at all the properties I used to manage in another life.
Still, my favorite house on the river.  Minimalist and modern,
Like me!

Earlier today I was inspired to write something weighing on my heart, and although I still want to share those same sentiments, an odd and unexpected occurrence happened to me this afternoon that put a new perspective, or spin, on things.

I take a train into the city at least three times a week, and I never ever ever ever EVER have totally missed my stop.  But, I just had such a weird day today - especially picking up on some weird energies from people.  Anyway, I was on the train home from downtown Denver and just got so engrossed in thought that this young woman came up to me and touched me on the shoulder and said, "Ma'am, this is the last stop."  And, I looked up expecting to see the train cop or an Rail Transit of Denver employee, but it was a fellow passenger.  And, she just smiled with the most beautiful, warm smile.  And, I laughed and thought briefly, "Geez, Kimmie how long would you have sat here?"  But, I fumbled with my bag and explained to the girl that I totally missed my stop by not paying attention.

We walked off the train together and it was cold!  Usually I can handle the dry cold in Colorado until the wind starts blowing...brrrrrrr.  I immediately noticed this other woman.  I'm not really sure if she's homeless but she clearly suffers from a mental disorder or some sort of demons.  I remember her from one day when I was sitting on the train at Union Station.  I was reading a book and waiting for the train for my train to leave and she boarded, suddenly got right up in my face, and started shouting some really crazy things.  And, there she was again, today, shouting "you stupid f*ckin' n*gger, f*ck you!"  (along with a host of other rather unflattering names and slurs.)  I mean, I think she may be imagining people?

And, I turned back around and the girl was still standing there with me.  She had just stopped (usually everyone is in such a hurry to get home) and just kept this warm smile on her face watching the lady with me.  It was such a truly genuine beautiful smile.  She wasn't beautiful like in the way of photoshopped perfection you see online.  She was a better kind of beautiful.  She glowed.  And, she looked at me and then looked up at the sky and she said, "Well, it's getting kinda dark.  Would you like for me to stand here with you so you're not scared?"  And, I looked at her in her eyes and she was being completely sincere.  I explained that I would be fine even though I kinda wanted her to keep standing there, because I was so drawn to her light, kindness, and warmth.  And, I needed it.  Perhaps to reignite my own dimmed light.  And, in an ultimate act of kindness as I stood there shivering, she took off her gloves and asked me if I needed them.  I politely declined and she smiled again and said, "well, I'm heading to my warm car and won't need them."  I asked for her name and she said "Dannie!  What's yours?"  I told her my name and thanked her for her kindness.  And, then she turned around one last time and said, "I'm sorry I've already forgotten your name."  And, that's when I knew she was me...or who I'm supposed to be.  Let me explain.

And, I'm telling you this because it was just us alone on this train deck - not a single soul around (aside from the woman possibly suffering from schizophrenia who had eventually walked away to start crying in a bus stop and you could hear her faint whimpers).  And, I think after recent life experiences and being let down by own expectations of humanity, God was showing me a reflection of me and who I am and who I am supposed to be to the world.  Dannie, thanks for the reminder!  Dannie said she always takes this same train, but I've never seen her before.  I've been taking this train for roughly 10 months and am a professional people watcher!  She was a great illustrative example of the light I'm supposed to shine.

And, now to the sentiments I wanted to share.  Everyone has a vice, and everyone has a toxic trait, if not many.  To say you don't have either is simply lying to yourself.  We are all toxic in some way.  But, the key point here is to recognize it and work on it.  We are all unfinished.  Vices.  As I said, everyone has one.  Also, everyone has a chapter they don't read out loud.  Today I spoke with one of my closest friends.  Believe it or not, we met on Match.com, a dating website, and have remained friends to this day.  Our best memories of living in South Carolina are each other and the fun times we had.  Today he told me that he is one year sober.  And, I wish I was closer to be able to celebrate with a nice dinner and walk on the beach and maybe a shot of bourbon wit a lime twist.  Just kidding.  We started talking about vices and then weaknesses, and I realized one of my greatest setbacks or vulnerabilities is that I walk into situations assuming everyone was raised like me.  My Achilles' tendon/heal is my own expectations.  It's actually called an anchoring bias.  I'll let you look it up, but it effects how one judges stimuli.  And, it really goes without saying that the past few years have made it really hard dealing with this susceptibility.  


Seriously, though my expectations are very low.  I'm basically like, "please just be a decent person," and I can't seem to find that.  Is it just me who has recently succumbed to, "wow, what a cesspool of shit this world has become?"  I mean frankly in a relationship, I'm one of the most low maintenance females I know.  For the most part, I do not like to be smothered and enjoy my space and alone time.  Make me laugh - and that is a huge bonus.  Inspire me, even better.  But, I ask that you don't lie to me and that you keep promises, plans, and commitments.  And, it's laughable how hard it is to find that these days.  People are too busy trying to psychoanalyze everyone instead of just being a genuinely good person and practicing love.  I mean it's really sad, if it wasn't so funny.  Emotional intelligence has become a rarity.  Dating for me has been reduced to:  Spending 4-6 weeks in someone's company to glean why they're single in the first place.

But, here's the thing.  Things could be worse than to be let down by my own expectations.  Granted, I'm blessed that I'm in a position not to ever have to settle: I'm independent and self-sufficient.  The worst thing is I could very well be them - pardoned by the world!  And, it's okay to be like "Just because the world acts like monsters...nah, that ain't for me."  And what a miserable place to be in - to be them.  Because the way people treat you has nothing to do with you.  It's a reflection of how they feel about themselves.  If you don't love yourself, there's absolutely no way to love another.  If you don't respect yourself, you can't respect others.  Period.

So, please don't let the dullness in others take away your shine.  You deserve to be filled the same way you pour.  Keep loving and keep shining.  What's meant for you will find it's way.  Just relax, and enjoy the trip.  Fortunately for me, I live in a large city that was just ranked #3 as best dating in the USA.  Meaning, if a guy treats like shit, believe it.  Shrug it of, get back on the saddle (after you've shined your boots of course).  The ladies are in the driver’s seat with so many single men in Denver!  Oh this reminds me of a quick joke:  “I had someone of a religious breakup…yeah, he thought he was God and I didn’t.”

Lastly, don’t forget to smile.  I know it causes wrinkles but it’s beautiful.  Focus on the Dannies in the world and that radiance and energy will start a whole damn fire!  It's contagious.

Love, 

Kimmie

GO VOTE!!!

 

‘Merica!!!


My biggest wish for this election is a new Governor for Colorado.  Fingers crossed for HEIDI!!!

Isn’t it weird that the same party that went on and on and on about Russian interference and collusion in the 2016 election also said there’s no way the 2020 election was rigged!?!  For a senile pedophile with no track record to run on who spent the entire year in his basement -50 years I’m Washington and has nothing to show for it and we’re suppose to believe he got 80 million votes, more than Obama.  Trump legally won the most votes in history.  It doesn’t take a genius to see his rallies sell out while Biden is boo’d out of every stadium with chants of “Fuck Joe Biden.”  

Business Law class will teach you that Delaware (the very first state - the 1st to ratify the Constitution) ranks as the #1 in corporate incorporations in America!  Why are so many corporations across America incorporating in Delaware!?!  Well, for starters - it’s cheap, it’s extremely simple, and there are some pretty nice tax benefits.   

Delaware Dufus (or Biden to some) represents Corporate America.  Delaware LOVES this man.  He represents credit card companies and champions their causes in Washington DC - companies who get rich off preying on Americans with outlandish interest rates!  Yet the overwhelming majority of Biden supporters claim to hate capitalism and the greed of corporate America!  Connecting the irony dots yet?   Delaware Dufus epitomizes corporate America!

This also may come as a shock to some, but has anyone wondered why Delaware Dufus spends more time in Delaware than he does in DC?  Well the answer is very clear.  All meetings conducted at the White House require a visitors log and every visitor is required to state his or her business.  There is full transparency as to the comings and goings of all guests.  But his Delaware home is considered a private residence and he doesn’t have to produce any log or any records at all!  So why wouldn’t he conduct the majority of his business dealings in Delaware with zero transparency to the American public?!

A bit off topic, but the more ya know!  You’re not anti establishment when you’re Ridin with Biden so please stahhhhp already!!!

Riding the red wave,

Salmon Patties for the Win!

My little brother just asked me for this recipe for Salmon Cakes (or as we called them growing up, Salmon Patties).  This is a Southern delicacy sorta like cowboy caviar…which, by the way, pairs nicely with these tasty salmon morsels.  Anyways, instead of texting this to him, I thought it would be best to share out on my blog so everyone can try it, and it’s out there in perpetuity as my legacy.  Oh, did I say it’s pretty inexpensive to make and AS good as crab cakes!?!  Pretty important in Joe Biden “inflation out the ass” land!

I knew I only had one shot to plate this and I failed.  I feel like usually my presentation is much better.  But the drizzles of remoulade all bled together by the time I found my phone. 

Okay, so first, get your ass to the market.  And pick up the following:

1 14oz can of pink tuna 

1 onion (you mince up 1/2 for this recipe)

2 eggs

3/4 cups of bread crumbs but I use these tasty Kellogg’s club crackers and I really think it’s so much better   

1 tsp lemon juice 

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp ground pepper

Drain your salmon (but keep the juice for later) and finger check for any bones as you drop in a bowl.   Add on the onions and mix!  Now add in your eggs and crackers and add back in the juice from the can and lemon juice.  Add salt and pepper.  Now shape your cakes while your olive oil heats on the stove.   Next drop them in for 5 minutes on each side and please watch for spitting oil that might pop out!  In other words, don’t stand too close!

Ohhhh I’m not even done!  You’ll wanna dip these in a remoulade sauce.  This one is my fave:

1/2 cup of Mayo 

2 teaspoons of hot horseradish 

1 tablespoon of pickle juice  

2 teaspoons of lemon juice 

2.5 teaspoons of paprika 

1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder 

1/2 teaspoon of Old Bay Seasoning   Mmmmm

Mix with a whisk!  Whalllaaaaa!

I hope you enjoy this southern treat!  My grandmama in South Carolina used to make these but we would dip them in ketchup or tartar sauce.  And I just think this remoulade jazzes it up so much better! 

Cowboy caviar is basically a bean salad with some BAM flavor It’s usually made with black eyed peas.  But in my pic, I made it with a three bean salad, some Serrano peppers, cilantro, opinions, and tomatoes.  I threw in a splash or two of Greek dressing!

Happy cooking!
