As a career professional, volunteer, mom, wife, and friend, I focus on the positive aspects of life, even when the road is rough getting there. Life is funny. How you treat others, how you handle situations, and how you live each day is your responsibility ... so are the outcomes.
I thought I lived in the Wisconsin, a state within the United States of America, where democracy, the majority, and discussions were held to do what is in the best interest of the masses. By definition, Wisconsin is becoming a dictatorship, “A government controlled by one person, or a small group of people. In this form of government the power rests entirely on the person or group of people, and can be obtained by force or by inheritance. The dictator(s) may also take away much of its peoples' freedom.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dictatorship)
As taxpayers and voters, we have a right to be able to make good decisions based on credible and accurate facts. The issue Wisconsin is facing with the budget is the lack of COMPLETE information available to us to determine for ourselves the exact impact Scott Walker’s decisions are going to have on our daily lives and families as a whole.
Good day to you, Ladies...I firmly believe we all have many things to be proud of, even when we feel life has not been in our favor. I hope the following excerpt from one of my favorite newletters gives you the incentive to celebrate the moments of your successes today and every day moving forward. It’s more fun to celebrate as we achieve. I hope each of you have an incredible 2011...Happy Holidays!
According to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 information posted on researchamerica.org, the state of Wisconsin was granted $141,056,206 to be spent on 297 projects within seven congressional districts. Continually focus is on influencing areas of the budget, which will encourage partnerships / building alliances with people and resource centers to increase jobs in our state. Given the large price tags per district listed below, how will the balance of these funds be allocated and to what projects? Thus far, how have these funds been dispersed? Who has been overseeing them to make sure they are being used for the purposes intended?
“I am on a mission,” is a phrase I am sure you have said or heard at one time or another. When you made the statement, did you only have one direction in mind, or were there various parts to what the “mission” may have entailed. I believe in this day and age, with the conundrum going on in our complicated lives, everyone should build a personal mission statement.
