Help My Son Get Home

Please check this link out.  Nate is in dire straights and needs to get back home to get back on his feet.   Wife is ill and he just lost his job, today.  Please consider donating.  Thanks!

         $5,000 goal

Hi there. My name is Nate and my goal is to basically get my life back on track and take care of myself and my wife. 
I use to be in the Navy as a Sonar operator on a Submarine. Honorable Discharge a few years ago, and from there I worked as a contractor in an IT Dep. I ended up getting injured on the job and was "In Breach of Contract" due to having to miss days. They fired me, and gave me an $800 workers comp check. 
Now on top of that, I was still injured, my bank tells me since I am enrolled in account protection plan for my auto loan , (if I ever lost my job ect) they can take up payments till I am back on my feet.  This worked out well for about 4 months (I was still injured for a while after I lost that previous job) I finally am able to get another job, not nearly as good, but the kicker is about the same time, the same bank that encouraged me to not make payments tells me "It was an overlook on our end, since your job was contracted job (for well over a year , but still contract job) it made my payment protection plan invalid and I wasn't able to use it. So at this point I'm 4 months behind on my car and they are calling me everyday.
At this point we are in Connecticut and I get a great job offer in Michigan. Talking it over we decide that is the bast course of action to take and we move out here.  Now my wife is a type 1 diabetic (since the age of 15) and she had plenty of supplies, until we find out we "Make too much for state insurance", but still can't afford the OBAMACARE health plan. They plan they lied about tellin us it would cover all her diabetic supplies(insulin, ect) just the same as our old state policy did (Back in CT).  It did not cover any of that. We've been stuck paying $300 for a month supply of 1 type of insulin for her. 
So back to the car, the bank decides the half payment I give them wasn't good enough and I wake up one sunday morning with no car, and even though I express to them why this happened and they are the ones who told me to stop making payments for my "Protection plan to be used, " they do not care. I managed to get my things out of the car, luckily my boss was able to rent me a car.
Already not thinking clearly because of inurance issues with medical and now this car and at first thinking I won't have a job because of that bank, long story short here , I go in to a panic in search for a replacement car to continue with my life.  Unfotunately there are alot of people that prey on people in need, such as the car dealer I dealt with.  Over paid, I've had to make replacements on parts every month and still have a almost $300 car payment.  The dealer lies and tells me in order to trade it in I have to make a first payment , then to just come back in.  I do that and his story changes to, Well we need another $500 down. (not how he explained in detail how it would work before).  Now as of this past friday, my car was hit on the way to work. It still drives but the front bumper is missing and I can't drive it at night as (its missing a headlight) and the other one must have got disconnected.Needs a really bad alignment now. Just another expense and just as that any kind of car insurance went out the window when medical costs went through the roof. I know my priorities and thats my Wife's safety and longevity of life.  
My goal now is to get back to my home state where I have more of my own resources and I can actually take care of my wife and myself.  I have tried just about everything I can think of, but with such high medical costs for no reason except for obamacare and thresholds being wrong for insurance, It's impossible to even attempt to get ahead. 
This is so important to me because I want to be able to move forward with my life, and not be in an endless  cycle of people taking advantage of people and being at the bottom. 
Thank you for taking the time to read this. The debt I can never pay back would be huge and I would look at anyone that helps as a savior to my family at this point. Simple text on a screen can never truly express how much of a blessing this would be.
UPDATE: My boss fired me stating "we need a full time employee and they are trying to run a business"  . So now I'm looking for a job on top of all this.

GOP Asinine Antics

Dear GOP, let this be a warning to you.

Mittens et al are planning to boycott the RNC convention.  Well, good, we don’t need their support!  Mittens, AKA Mitt Romney, is attacking Donald Trump in a way he should have attacked Obama four years ago.  Is Romney miffed he did not win the election of 2012, or is he afraid of losing his fringe benefits in DC if an outsider is elected by the vast majority of Americans?   After all, it is we the people who are supposed to choose our elected officials.  Romney did not even attempt to be a viable candidate in 2012, anymore than McCain did in 2008.   

The GOP is planning to break the rules, or rather reinvent the rules, to suit their own personal pockets at the convention.  One such asinine comment by Steve Lonegan about Trump and the Republican Party, "doesn't seem to care about the damage he's doing".   

Excuse me, you think you can go against the will of the people and change the rules to get the result you want?  Doesn’t work that way.  You people who are not siding with Trump are causing the damage, but I believe that you already know that.

That is precisely why this county is in such a shambles – people like Romney, Bush (all of them), Lonegan, McCain, Graham, Kaisch, gang of 8 member Rubio, and all the other turncoats who have been bought and sold by the shenanigans of the elected individuals who have forgotten who it is that put them there. 

The Dump Trump people should be removed from office and not allowed to take a position in government again.  Changing the rules in the middle of the game is as unethical as it gets.  These people should be ashamed.  Oh, no, seems to me, and millions of other Americans that they’re afraid that Trump will spill the beans on all of the illegal activities and all of the pandering that really goes on in Washington.

Hillary Clinton (IMO) is a pathological liar who is lying if she is talking.  Going by her actions through the years, she is only interested power, at any cost.

Republicans at the convention, let me warn you.  If you dare to disrupt the people’s choice of Donald Trump to put in a pansy boy, we will write in Donald Trump’s name.  He is not perfect, but he is not afraid to do the right thing for this country.  Actually, Trump has more backbone than the vast majority of the GOP.  He is not always on target, but he is a far better candidate than we have seen in many years. 

Sarah Palin accurately calls them, "rats."


GOP, be warned.  Your jobs are on the line because we will remember when we vote!

Eye Eye

The branch stabs the eye and blood pours from the eye amidst excruciating pain…….

Here I am picking the dead junk off my beautiful vine rose bush that happens to be taller than I am – over 5’5” – when I zero in on the branch that has the most dead leaves, when ZAM, (is that a new word??) I feel a sharp stabbing pain in my left eye.

…Pain that was excruciating and permeated throughout my whole body. A dumb branch (of course it wasn’t really dumb, no comments please) stabbed me in the dead center of my left eye.

Hubby was at the end of the driveway approximately one half-acre away on his way to work, unknown his beloved was in a distress. Here I am in unspeakable pain, left hand over left eye, blood on my right hand (presumably spouting from said eye) wondering if there is enough gas in the truck to go to the hospital, can I see to call hubby, see to drive, or what…

My mind wanted to race and tell me all of the possible injuries that could occur – eye popping out, eye smashed, eye with a hole in it etc etc. but I knew the importance of speaking only God’s word, positive thinking, or whatever you want to call it, but I knew timing was critical.

The only words that would come out of my mouth were, “I am healed by the stripes of Jesus…” I’m yelling this (at no-one in particular) and running into the house to the bathroom, amid dripping blood on the front porch, and when I reach the bathroom I am almost afraid to take my hand away from my eye. Would the blood come gushing out of my eye, would part of my eye come out, or worse, would my eye just pop out.

When I finally braved the removal of my hand from my eye, I saw no blood.

However, there was a small branch about one quarter of an inch that came out from the corner of my eye. Then my contact lens came out looking like it had been attacked by a jack hammer. I’m splashing oodles of cold water on and into my eye and inspecting it as best I could for any possible damage and I am still trying to make a decision on what to do. Yes, I’m still yelling God’s word throughout this ordeal. Then the rest of the lens came out! The branch had torn a quarter of an inch off my lens - grrrr. Looking in the mirror, all I could see (ha ha) was a bloodshot eye and feel a little pain, but I could see with the eye – as much as anyone can see who is short-sighted.

The next day I did not wear the contact lens in the left eye and it was a little funny as I wear one lens for distance and one lens for close-up. The missing lens was from the eye for close-up work – yes, it was amusing to watch me I’m sure  I’m a teacher of special needs children and I’m demonstrating how to cook a grilled cheese sandwich – minus the close-up lens!!

The only evidence of the incident is blood on the front porch that dripped as I was running into the house. I may keep it there as a reminder of Gods faithfulness when we choose Him.

Yes, the eye is perfectly normal and healthy.

I didn’t think to take pictures – duh – but, to me anyway, it speaks volumes of speaking the Word of God in critical situations. Yes, there are times we visit the doctor, but many times the words we speak make or break what happens to us.

I have nothing profound to say at this point. Remember though, our thoughts become words and our words carry power.

Hugs :)
