Sigh.

I did not vote for the man, but it is never cool to suggest the Presidemt be murdered. You are starting to smell like dog shit on the sidewalk on this one. Jazz neeeds to learn many things from you, hatred and intolerance should not be among them.

I don't think McCain is a bad guy, but he spent more time on character assassination than on discussing his policy plataform which suggests a certain lack of integrity on his part.

I agree with anonymous 4:58 PM, specially because you are 1/2 black. Don't you know that spanish people is considered black!!!!
And anonymous 6:08 AM you are 100% right, and I think I know who you are.

Well i did vote for Obama ! And Im proud to be an american in this time in our history . jamie

shelley said...

Racist, huh? :) Am I racist for hating Obama, or for another reason? If Obama was 100% white and stood for all the same shit, I'd hate him jut as much as I hate him now. I hate him for being a socialist (not a communist, Boston Joe, but damn close) and for wanting the govt to take over our health care (seriously, deal with Medicaid for 1 month while you are sick and see if you still want the govt to take over!) and for basically disagreeing with everything I believe. My kid will be HOME SCHOOLED!!! If that makes me racist, then I guess I am racist...

...but yeah, in real life I am racist. :) But not against all blacks, only against niggers. And the person who called me half-black- wtf??? Have you seen my pics? I am as white as they come! There are WHITE CUBANS on one side of my family (Cubans can be white, brown, or black; my Cuban family is all white) but there isn't a drop of blackness in me. That's just ign'int.

Hey Shell, well you know we definitely differ on our political stances, but you know I still love ya. Just wanted to drop ya a line. I sent you email and granted you access to my now locked journal. Will you let me know if you got it or not? Take Care.

Michelle said...

Yer right, I did leave out some information... I also skipped a grade, and the school I graduated validictorian at was private Christian school. Motherfucker what?

You're defending yourself probably because you are also trying to convince yourself of your lies! I do not even think you are mature enough yet to really understand the sacrifice and dedication one needs to have to home school. Can you even keep a no brainer Mon.-Fri. JOB??? NO? Well good luck!

I don't think that anyone has to make the final decision regarding homeschooling right now.

Of course a parent is **always** teaching at home but for the more formal commitment of homeschooling parents around here take it one year at a time. This means you might homeschool pre-K & K but not the rest or you might start with 2nd grade and go through HS. Some parents do a combination where they home school the academics but the child goes to the public school for art or whatever.

Up here anyway, there are groups of homeschooling parents you can join & do things with like homeschool enrichment activities but complete the academic course work at home.

Keep your options & your mind open. My children go to a charter school & if you asked me when my daughter was a few months old, I would have said "No way" but we are there now and we like it. So you don't really know what option you'll see as best later.

And FYI ... if your baby is screaming all of the time ... she IS going through withdrawal. You aren't doing anyone, but yourself, a favor. Don't kid yourself, kiddo!

Be prepared, and I'm not HOPING this for you, simply stating fact, be prepared for your kid to hate you.

Hey,

Congrats on your beautiful daughter. I haven't posted a comment here in quite awhile and than I check your blog and there she is..You daughter. Thank you for posting the part about her not suffering one iota for you being on methadone. The stigmas persist and it is ignorance. Please stay well..As far as Obama, sigh, I think at this point we are in such a mess, I don't know how he is going to fulfill all the promises he has made to the public. It isn't possible. Again, Good for you Michelle...

Welcome to our future! I doubt Michelle voted but she is HEAVILY relying on the government's (our tax paying dollars) support. So sad.

Michelle said...

I'm on medicaid (well, I'm trying to be, actually I payed for my last pediatrician appointment with cash) but not welfare or food stamps... is that "HEAVILY relying on the govt"?? Weirdo.

your baby is pretty ugly michelle. I've definitely seen much better looking babies. I hope she is not as stupid as you.

"your baby is pretty ugly michelle. I've definitely seen much better looking babies."

Now come on, I may not be Michelle's biggest fan but there is no reason to attack the kid. And yes, I'm the 'weirdo' she just referred to. :)

If refusing to use people to get ahead in life is considered being a weirdo, I'm proud to wear the tag!

Just leave the kid out of it is all I'm sayin'.

Peace, love and socialism! This country is going down the tubes real fast. :(

Lori said...

Ok, don't you think there is enough problems in our society today? Why attack a human being who is doing the best she can to improve the quality of her life, and the life of her child? I remember reading her blog when she started and I only see positive changes. No one on this planet is perfect. To call a baby ugly is sinking rather low. Everyone has demons, drugs, booze, porn, something. It is the people who come to terms with their monsters and attempt to change that should be praised, not verbally attacked.

LMAO ... I thought 'white guy' Greg was the baby daddy.

I love how the stories continually change.

Michelle said...

The father isn't hispanic, the father is Greg who, as you said, is a blond blue eyed white guy. But I am half Cuban, although I look 100% white. I'm not sure why her hair is so dark!

Capitalism will never die in this country, it is the very source of our motivation not to mention an infrastructure entirely devote to profit and yield. More importantly, however, there is an economic disparity which overlaps capitalism and becomes a severe reflection of greed. Big corporations do run this country presently and our economic reliance on such unethical (seen in sub-prime mortgages & the bait/switch technique with investors and small business owner equity/refinancing) methodology and henceforth the recession is just a reflection of this big money greed. Obama isn't a socialist, he's a catalyst for the much needed reform that this country needs. Our government is way out of wack, a complete extreme, so extreme changes need to be implemented, it is the only way to strike a balance, an equilibrium if you will. You could look at it like physics, pulling a rope in the opposite direction will yield an equal rate of tension and the rope will be strong and balanced. Any increase in pull from either end will make the rope unstable. People tend to stick to hot topic issues, such as medical insurance, in a very superficial way. We should have socialized insurance on top of private insurance. No one is saying get rid of classes but as a responsible government employed by the citizens who work jobs (which include the lower echelon of the pyramidal working class) they should have options that work for them! They should have tax credits that afford them the option to get better health care. To deny a person a health care coverage based on a,b and c is unconsitutional and very unamerican. It falls into the category of profit and loss, of corporate ledgers and privitization of standard of living. Whoever wants to remain in this war is myopic and insists that more young men & women die for another 50 years in order to colonize a country rich in natural resources. It's bullshit. Patriotism is founded on the fundamental law that each person is essential to that country, we are merely a large biological organism and the individual is just a part of the whole. With a constant uncessary strain on another part the organism will not function - that's what they want. But we have to be united in the fact that we all at least get the opportunity to succeed. Life in and of itself already has it's battles.

"Capitalism will never die in this country"

Our country is in peril and capitalism is indeed DEAD!!! The writing is on the wall, you can only choose to ignore it.

"Obama isn't a socialist, he's a catalyst for the much needed reform that this country needs."

Do your research, he is INDEED a socialist and still has yet to prove his US citizenship. Just because a speech writer came up with a campaign based on the word CHANGE doesn't mean change is going to happen in a positive way.

"We should have socialized insurance on top of private insurance."

That is an oxymoron and you just reiterated what I read from your comments ... you support socialism and the socialist dictator that will soon take the seat as our next president.

"No one is saying get rid of classes but as a responsible government employed by the citizens who work jobs (which include the lower echelon of the pyramidal working class) they should have options that work for them!"

Again, reiterating the fact that you INDEED support the socialistic path our country is now headed in. You need to realize that the government is supposed to work for us but that hasn't been the case for decades. The bailout should have confirmed this to you.

Research Dr. Ron Paul. I think you will agree with where he stands. Too bad that man isn't our next president ... all hope died when he wasn't "S"elected for the Republican ticket.

Again, welcome to the USSA!

Michelle said...

I fought with Medicaid for months and they ended up fucking me in the end. Anyone who wants 'socialized medicine', aka "FREE" govt healthcare, should be forced to sign up for Medicaid the DAY they get sick, and then see what happens. How long will your application take? When will you see a doctor? Will you get to see one ever? How many trips will you make to the office? Those govt employees make the same paycheck if you get helped or if you get fucked! If the govt takes over our health care we will all die slowly.

And yes, Obama IS a socialist- just look up the word. He fits it like a glove.

Please elaborate on how you feel capitalism is dead? The writing I see on the wall is merely the script of a failing pursuit of capitalism in it's misguidance of governmental use. Capitalism is alive and well, is it not obvious on how we exploit numerous countries daily...like say, Venezuela, illegal workers, Turkey, Cambodia...sweatshops here in the U.S? Capitalism is merely the ability of financial gain b/c the individual owns the means of production. I can see how you could feel capitalism is dead b/c the individual here is basically replaced with huge conglomerates who squeeze the middle and lower class for all their worth..but you know, that is capitalism - financial gain by those who own their means so I really don't agree in the slightest that capitalism is dead.

In terms of the president-elect's issue on citizenship? Give me a break, it's just a blatant attempt of defamation as if Obama didn't have enough against him. Prove his citizenship? I can assure you that any issue that huge would've been brought up in the years before his plan to run for president unless, of course, it was a conspiracy. But I'm not one for conspiracy theories.

Socialism...I am very aware of what it means. I'm also very aware that you are obviously a jaded individual in terms of the government, we all are. The bailout only proved to me that it was a necessary evil, as if Obama should be held responsible for our current administration's lack of vision and obvious corrosion of ethics. Of course he had to vote for the bailout, if not our recession would be far worse than a discussion on a blog. Socialism indicates a collective involvement in everything (usually in the form of a government).
Honestly, the government should have a pretty big involvement in insurance. Michelle's comment is proof of that. With all the privatization of insurance and the low quality care of governmental insurance because of the PROFIT (ahem, capitalism) of privatization then obviously we need a balance between the two! Do I personally think everyone deserves health care, damn right I do. Because you know who gets squeezed the most - the middle class and that's me. And I'm a student and I dont' have insurance b/c I don't qualify for healthcare with the government and I don't make enough money to buy my own. And I'm putting myself through a master's program and working my tail off and I still get worried when I'm sick and I still have to get my wisdom teeth pulled. So give me a break with regards to the horrible truth of medicare. Given a chance it could work but with everything it takes time. I want my children to have that and if it means I have to take the brunt of the change, so be it. The government has failed us before, but we don't do things because we are fearful of failure but because we need it to succeed. Try and try again is the motto.

I don't think I'm a socialist, I just think there are certain fundamental societal institutions that should work for the common wealth. That allows an economy to thrive. It's apparent in other world powers. Productive citizens make for a productive market, make for a higher standard of living and a tighter grasp of foreign affairs. History tells us the government has failed us so why continue pushing a square into a circle? People are so afraid in this country, it's very pathetic. And to correlate the U.S.A with the U.S.S.R is just propaganda back into this world of impending doom. But of course, that's just my opinion on things and now that Obama will be the President all we can really do is wait and see. We can argue all we want on what will happen but it's all conjecture. Both of us could be surprised.

If only capitalism would finally die instead of our "leaders" endlessly trying to rehabilitate the failed model. We have had socialism for years, for the rich. Bailouts are taking public money and putting it in private hands.

Before you criticize socialism, quit medicaid.

You were "validictorian" [sic] yet, not quite smart enough to realize that you were developing a pretty intense drug problem? You got pregnant while on Methadone, and attest that your daughter did not suffer withdrawal symptoms? What did they do, taper her off in utero? You're kidding yourself if you think you didn't risk your daughter's life with your selfish, disgusting behavior. Mothers like you are the worst, fooling first yourself, and then later, your child.

Once an addict, always an addict; way to set your daughter up for failure.
