american way: THE UNITED STATES MILITARY PAST PRESENT OR FUTURE I HONOR YOU ALL - 03/23/13 12:00 PM
I know you, I know of you and will always remember you. You see I live in a country that was hard fought to be what it is. America is a land of liberty where one can travel great distances in many directions without being interrupted or interfered with. On the way you can enjoy anyone's hospitality, ideas, products or services and really and literally ...have a good day... FORCES THAT PROTECT AND SERVE There is a price on this planet for the above statement and the United States Military pays it in full every day all year long even while (9 comments)
american way: WHOEVER CONTROLS WHAT PEOPLE WANT CONTROLS PEOPLE THE BANKS AT WORK - 08/11/11 03:17 PM
Power, wealth and ruling can be traced back to the basics which is simply the title of the post. He who has the gold rules is rampant right now instead of the golden rule which is to do unto others as you would have them do unto you. The staples of the human being who journeys is food, shelter and clothing. We are being held hostage on shelter THE PROBLEM IS COMPLEX ON PURPOSE TO HIDE THE SOLUTION I apologize for over simplifying this problem. I am sure that you can complicate it with an explanation that would rival an Einstein (2 comments)
american way: OWNING A PIECE OF LAND IS IN THE DNA...HUMAN ROOTS IF YOU WILL - 08/04/11 11:05 AM
There is something in us where we take a plot of land, a location, a spot and when we decide to stay with it, it now becomes more than a visiting place. It is a home. Nature does it too! Animals roam around all day long, but at the end of the day, they go to one spot. That one spot is now their HOME. We do that too! VACATION HOUSE HOME It used to be that when you vacationed over and over again to one place, considering buying something at that place was the next logical step thus the vacation (3 comments)
american way: THE AMERICAN WAY IS WORTH LIVING AND DYING FOR...thank you - 05/28/11 10:47 AM
Ever since my son joined the Marine Corps and became of service to the country, I became more aware of what it means to have a country to serve for. Millions of people have gone before my thoughts did and have given their lives so that I may write this post of gratitude and acknowledgment THEY LOVE AMERICA... If you have ever visited a town or a city that is located near a military base, you see the prime youth of America in the arm forces enjoying themselves on their leave days. What do they do? Exactly what you and I (2 comments)
american way: MOVIES, POPCORN, CANDY....ITS NOT A PERFECT TIME, BUT A GOOD TIME - 05/23/11 10:47 AM
The quality of movies continues to disappoint. Until they make things that make sense first and then money second...well that will never happen. I went to see Thor because I collected the comics growing up. The movie is flawed and the plot trite, but seeing on the big screen helps the medicine go down smoother MOVIE POPCORN...YUM I haven't had movie popcorn in a while which is really decent popcorn mixed with a special popping oil. It is a calorie generator, but it soothes the savage beast. I decided to add a candy to it and studied the choices..Junior Mints leaped (3 comments)
american way: THE AMERICAN SYSTEM....LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL....YES PLEASE - 03/23/11 11:10 AM
Wherever you see anything being ruled by a tyrant or some domineering factor, there is major dysfunction at work. When you add money to it, it becomes a dark power masquerading as normalcy out in the open with gall. There is no love bonding the tyrant and his close circle of friends. Whole countries are run like this FEAR BINDS THEM TO EACH OTHER It has to do with money, fear of death and privileges. The tyrant has to make sure he doesn't over pay or reward because that empowers others to become tyrants in the making creating an overthrow scenario. (0 comments)
american way: 2011....we need to put the "CAN" back into...... Ameri-CAN - 11/29/10 04:06 PM
I plan to take the New Year and make it do something...well NEW. I thought that is how it works. Out with old, in with New. I am reading miscellaneous articles that are saying otherwise. That makes me reflect on our current leadership...and wonder I read and heard that gains in unemployment will not take place. Some are predicting another 2 years. I don't know about that, I just know that it wont pick-up right away. Now that's a problem needs immediate attention I read and heard that Real Estate is expecting any gains until 2012 or more. Until then, depreciating (6 comments)
american way: THIS COUNTRY IS BEING LOOTED....from the top..... - 10/19/10 09:18 AM
I am thinking of the time when all the bankers were summoned to Washington to help avert problems in the Real Estate and Finance Industry...what do they do..? All fly down in corporate jets. Remember that one..? We knew there and then that the whole banking industry was a sham and the people running it not far behind either..... But wait, it really takes a funny turn...these same people who were outed successfully qualified for billions of dollars of BAIL-OUT money. They had the last laugh on us all and he who laughs last, laughs best. The insult to all this, (8 comments)
american way: THE NEW PITCH TO BUY A HOME...........IT'S THE OLD PITCH COME BACK..... - 09/25/10 08:45 AM
I wrote a comment that gave birth to this post. I have had many interactions with foreigners who come into this country and purchase inexpensive properties in acceptable neighborhoods. It is not their dream home. You see...to these type of people, just owning something is the biggest thrill of their lives.... They understand the following..... 1. They now own something in the United States of America....this is something we tend to minimize for some reason. Let that sink in....they own a piece of America.......wow! 2. They are now building equity and have a future they can count on. They went in (15 comments)
american way: AMERICA'S FASCINATION....and skill....WITH NICK NAMES.............. - 09/16/10 08:16 AM
The American way is so much fun when it comes to certain things. I mean we do snacks, sports, and diversion pretty well. We like our toys and our BBQ's together with holidays and making or spending money. We are imitated all over the world and hated by those who don't understand us or who haven't tried it before they knocked it. NICKNAME:...... A DESCRIPTIVE NAME TO REPLACE A REAL NAME Something we really excel at is NICK NAMES.....we have nick names for everything. People, places, items, and habits...let's take just a glance of some of our silliness.... TRY TRANSLATING: All (7 comments)
american way: WHERE WWWWW IS A WWWW, THERE IS A WWWW - 09/01/10 11:44 AM
Here's a goody that got me through some rough spots. I even used this to raise the kids and...to correct people who were negative or just plain stubborn. People..... who have given up or argue things cannot be done. Anything is possible as long as you are above ground....Have you figured it out yet?......you either used it or it was used on you
WHERE THERE IS A WILL..... THERE IS A WAY I remember many times not having things and wondering how to go about trying to have them. The easy ways are the most attractive and if you can (5 comments)
american way: BEING IN THE RIGHT PLACE.........AT THE RIGHT TIME......... - 07/26/10 10:09 AM
I learned the first rule of making a living which was to do business, you have to be in business. All mature, seasoned professionals or young hungry "hit the ground running" types.... in whatever field of endeavor you are in....... usually act out business plans or use their SAVVY on a day to day basis with predictable results.........we do business...... Even our best efforts, planning, farming an area, networking or negotiating a deal can work out well or can fall short for reasons out of our control. When you have done all you can do, well, that is all you can (0 comments)
