Haiti/Thoughts/Things to do for weekend of 1-14-09

I hope the 2nd full week of the New Decade finds you well, and your New Years Resolutions are going strong! If tired of the cold and snow, good news O-H-I-O, we are in for a January thaw with above normal temps! Maybe we will be reminded grass really is green?
 
If your resolution is to have better fitness, make more money, maybe get a new car. I can help with all of this! Please let me know if you are interested in weight loss products, vitamins for a better you, drinks that will give you more (non-edgy) energy, more income, or a new car. I do it, you can too!!! www.visalus.com (or page being built www.loseweightnewark.com)

HELP NEEDED:
In the past few days there has been a horrible natural disaster to a neighboring country to the south. Haiti has experienced the worst Natural Disaster in over 200 years. Some may think who cares, we need to worry about ourselves. Well…we do need to think of ourselves, and neighbors. Here in Central Ohio we have many who give time, efforts, talents, and monies in the form of Missionary work. I have been speaking to some of them. It is easy to donate monies and many in National Press are asking to donate to The Red Cross. 1st The Red Cross IS NOT A NON-PROFIT! 2nd The monies you send are NOT going to Haiti but to an ORGANIZATION that is assisting Haitians.

FURTHERMORE…with the exception of Elizabeth Dole, and Clara Barton (Red Cross Founder) the organization does not go above and beyond…it is a BUSINESS (not that that is entirely wrong). I will even point out that in some situations, when our brave men & women have come out of the battlefields there have been 2 tables set up distributing coffee. One table manned by volunteers would give coffee away, while The Red Cross charged for the service. NEED MORE? The Red Cross takes YOUR DONATED BLOOD from Blood Drives and SELLS IT TO OUR ARMED FORCES.

I encourage you NOT TO DONATE TO THE RED CROSS DURING THIS TIME. I suggest you donate to organizations that the funding goes directly to relief efforts. One such I recommend (and is staffed by a local, and a friend of mine IN HAITI) is www.haitianchristian.org

So please help LOCALS help others who are in need.

At the risk of offending, I personally think this is a blessing in disguise to the citizens of Haiti. The country has never been stable and many have been in poverty at the result of a corrupt and neglectful government. All one needs to do is look at the time of rule of Papa Doc and Baby Doc in The 80’s.
With all the international Governments involved and providing funding, resources and ITS’ OWN CITIZENS/VOLUNTEERS, I hope  that the delegations involved will FORCE The Haitian Government to clean up it’s act and better the lives of it’s citizens.

THOUGHTS:
I need to revisit last weeks mailing. I would like to blame spell check, but will “kinda” assume responsibility. In the New Years Resolutions I stated relationships outside of “Fiances'” what was meant was “Finances”

“The Bodies a temple that’s what we’re taught, I treated this one like an old Honkey Tonk”-Kenny Chesney
This past week has been kinda a rough one for me, after going through what I affectionately call Hell week “of 2-A-Day workouts” I have developed some serious tenderness and pain in my right bicep. It is kinda frustrating to work so hard and have setbacks. But part of my own personal maturing is to listen to my body (and others opinions) and back off when needed. So…for the next week and a half I will be doing cardio only.
 
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
Listen to parents in this video. Their 4 year old kid is suspended for his long hair. They don’t want to “hold him down against his will” to cut his hair. WHAT!?!?! The kid has no ideer what he wants!!! SO…the kid is in “in-school” suspension. AT LEAST he is not expelled and will not have the incredible articulate communication style of his moms. “His hair ain’t botherin’ nobody, it ain’t no different than any other boy with long hair.” Hey mom, their is no other males with long hair at the school, they would be suspended. GREAT YET ANOTHER KID WHO WILL END UP BEING CARED FOR WITH OUR TAX DOLLARS!

POLITICS:
So the Dems have double standards! They force out The Republicans’ Trent Lott, yet refuse to ask their own Harry Reid to step down. Neither Lott nor Reid statements were offensive to me, however when one group cries fowl and demands Lott be removed, and then cries victim when one of their own is under fire, I have a real problem with this. Once again the Democratic party is not only fueling apathy and victim mentality, but now acting the part.

It will also be an even more exciting Gubernatorial Race in O-H-I-O. As Kasich takes on Strickland. Both have naked their running mates for Lt Governor. Kasick selected Auditor Mary Taylor who hold currently is the Only Statewide Office Holder for the Rebublicans. Strickland however has named Judge Yvette McGee Brown. Brown stepped out of the spotlight to work with her charities of choice, Childrens Hospital and The “Y.” I guess the Political Bug and bit her again and as she once was wants back into the spotlight so, just like her cases she was presiding over…the race will be all about her! She has done a lot of good for the local area-however SHE WILL TELL YOU HOW MUCH GOOD SHE HAS DONE!!! The 4 story pictures of her on the side of the YWCA in Downtown Columbus is not nealry as big as her ego!

SPORTS:
CONGRADULATIONS TO THE NCAA NATIONAL CHAMPION ALABAMA!
Even in a loss we saw Texas’ Freshman Quarterback grow from an Athlete to a Man. This kid is gonna be great!!!

Speaking of GREAT…The Buckeyes are Ranked Pre-Season #5 and returning all but 2 starters. Add a more Mature (and healthy Terrel Pryor) and LOOK OUT NATION!!! PLUS we have THE SINGLE BEST HOME SCHEDULE EVER!!! On paper…all we have to do is beat “The U.” This will not be easy on September 11th ’cause The U is back! I was really looking forward to this game ’till I found out a close friend is getting married on this date. GOTTA ASK JASON WHAT WERE YOU THINKING? But I must think the world of you and Raven, your Bride to be-cause I will be at your wedding. But it should be an exciting ride for Buckeye nation next year. At least be more stable than the resent “Class” moments displayed by Pete Carol (leaving after allegations of violations), and Lane Kiffin (leaving Tenn after only one year).
