What’s up With These Anti-Trump Riots?


trump-rally-chicago-1-1024x683

If you didn’t vote for Trump then you probably won’t like me.  I support our new president 100% and so does the majority of America because despite the early claim to Hillary winning the popular vote, Trump won that and the electorates.  I am proud for our new president and I’m disgusted in the riots and violence that has become of this election.

What is more disturbing is George Soro’s and other elite groups are behind funding these riots and paying protesters to organize them.  George Soro’s is a man who profits from crashing economies and currencies.  Chaos is the perfect breeding ground for his fortunes.  Half of these people don’t even know what they’re protesting.  I bet you the majority of them didn’t even vote.  The riots aren’t what scare me.  It’s the chaos and division of our country that can lead to civil war, violence, crashing of economy and currency and rise in crime.  When people are breaking your car and house windows and stealing  your shit, please unfriend me if you rioted and supported Hillary.

This election was nasty.  Trump said things to attack Hillary that didn’t mean anything, and Hillary used the media to portray Trump in a not-so-flattering light.  Yes, they picked on his character flaws.  He’s an impatient, egomaniac and has a poor temperament. And he grabs women by the pussy.  I think this just humanized him.  I think the people are sick of “holier-than-thou” crooked politicians who are smart and cover their tracks.  I think Trump is too honest and straight forward and says what he means to be labeled a politician and that is refreshing in the eyes of the people who are seeking genuine change.  People say we survived Bush.  I use to make $200k a year when Bush was in.  Since Obama was in I make half of that.  My income crashed in 2008.

In my eyes, I have never lived in fear, or lived in an America where the racial divide is worse than it is today.  To me… we survived Obama.  And Obama is not YET out of office and in the time between now and inauguration, who know’s if we’ll make it before Obama delays Trump’s presidency and declares Marshall Law.  The legal issues just conveniently showed up around election time and I think the people don’t put stock into that because they see through the ugly obstacles of politics and winning an election.  The people spoke, and Trump won.

If you want to riot and be treasonous, then please go for it.  I say imprison rioters and they can build and maintain the wall.  But rioters are seeking a resolution.  Rioting does not fix anything in this circumstance.  If you think Trump is going to get impeached because you’re rioting, you are WRONG.  He won this election which means there are more people who want him in office than those protesting.  Or at least they were the ones to show up on election day.  By rioting you are continuing to divide this country and give the wolves ground to capitalize on the fall of America.  If there is a civil war, I don’t think majority of you would be able to back it up or bare arms.  I’m telling you, I’d be ready if you want to infringe on our rights and make this place an ugly place.  I’m with Trump.

Hillary leaving without giving a speech.  Obama doing nothing for these riots.  I think Trump needs to give a presidential speech.  And Obama and Hillary need to step up and be leaders and speak to these rioters.  They need to know that everything is going to be ok, and they need to respect the president.  It’s sad that our leaders are nowhere to be found.  And Obama is secretly planning an Iraq deployment that military soldiers are forbidden to discuss until after the election.

Please, let’s give him a chance to do his job.  He has discussed lowering  taxes for everyone across the board.  Marijuana is a go.  Gay rights he intends to let them keep.  Abortion he prefers to stay out of and allow the state to make those laws, and we can live with that.  Melania has talked about cyber bullying which I think is a huge deal.  Ivanka has proposed paid maternity leave.  And Trump hasn’t proposed an immediate 10 million refugees being deported.  He has started with beginning with the 2-3 million with criminal records and those in prison.  He is taking things slowly and methodically and so far all the talks of what he’s done is good.  Let’s focus on the good and give him a chance.  When you disagree with a policy change or something he is doing, then please protest.  But stop protesting his character defamation the media has painted him in a poor light.  GIVE HIM A CHANCE.  Let’s be civil and let him save our country.  I sincerely feel he has a diplomatic approach and his family has a desire to “Make America Great Again.”  Saving our nation is more important than hotel vacancies as Donald and Invanka stated in their 60 Minutes interviewer.  This is bigger than anything and I commend the Trump family for taking on this difficult position in a difficult time.   #teamtrump #maga

Be an Educated Consumer


Ethical Consumerism is an important movement toward corporate reform.   In the past, it was a goal for companies to drain every dollar from your pocket, by using provocative advertisements, catchy slogans, celebrity endorsements, demographic/age/sex profiling, highly developed psychological tactics and expensive marketing campaigns.  In today’s economy, companies stress corporates responsibility to use ethical marketing tactics and build consumer awareness around their products.

Are you an educated consumer?  There are a lot of gray areas that we as consumers are unaware of.  Do you fully understand what factors complete your purchase?  Is it a memorable advertisement you saw in a magazine? Price?  Quality? Brand/Label? Design?  Did you walk in the store because a cute sales person was in the front?  Or did the smell of lemon scented candles entice your senses, envoking energy and positivity?

Today, one of the biggest trends in fashion is “going green.”  The misconception, misinformed consumers face.  Not all green is good.  For example, green cotton may take more energy to crop and care for because the lack of pesticides.  Bamboo is a great new green fabric, however it takes many synthetic chemicals to process is into a fabric.  You need to carefully look into your products and manufacturing to truly understand the manufacturing, marketing, and distribution practices.  For example, hybrid cars are suppose to be “energy efficient” vehicles that run off of electricity vs. gas, and better for the environment.  Although the price of running it is lower, and you may get some free perks in certain cities, such as free parking, the carbon print is actually worse for the environment than your regular SUV.

In the past, I wrote a blog mocking PETA.  I personally am a huge fan of leather and fur.  I have several fur bags and shoes including mink, oscillot, and I would die for a leopard or a tiger fur.  #JUSTSAYING.   Fur and Leathers are a great natural textile that comes from the earth.  It is long lasting, strong, durable, warm, and high in quality.  I viewed some animal cruelty videos sent to me by some angry PETA members.  Although, I do believe they are cruel, I still stand by my opinions, that pushy PETA members trying to push their beliefs on the world is annoying.  Not all companies are run by cruel animal abusers.  I agree, there should be laws to prosecute employees not in correct practice of properly putting the animals under.

Another unethical practice in the world of fashion is the issue of manufacturing.   We all know that Nike pays children .25 a day to make shoes.  And in some areas in China, they are polluting the ocean with chemicals.  Does this affect YOUR purchasing choices?  With China owning our asses, and our nation in debt and economy in shambles, many believe it is ethical to boycott trades form China.  That would mean no more shopping at Walmart.  Did you know that our economy RELIES on the cheap affordable Chinese goods.  So doing so would hurt Americans.  China actually has laws limiting the number of imports that comes into the country.  That means they are hording the debt and hording the American dollar, which is bad for us.  So if we decide to stop buying from them, that could create a huge war between America and China.

I ❤ the Sexy American Apparel ads, but I never shop there.

AMERICAN APPAREL = COOL CAPITALISTS GONE WILD

American Apparel prides itself on it’s ethical employee environment and manufacturing practices.  I don’t ever personally shop there, because I think it is overpriced medium quality clothing that I don’t really care for.  But I believe a major marketing selling point for them is them being an ethical American company.  Turns out, they run illegal sweat shops, and are being sued by employees for sexual harassment, poor working environments, and under minimum wage wages.  As far as their marketing goes, their advertisements are super provocative.  I see nothing wrong with provocative advertising, however, it is wise to recognize this as marketing tactics, and be knowledgable in the fact that it does not negatively impact our buying decisions as consumers.

the Unethical Ethics of American Apparel Facebook

That is the way of the world, and I don’t see things every changing or getting better.  Corporations run the world.  Poor ethics have become an irreversible way of trade.  Globalization, corporations and unethical standards have become the standard.

The healing powers of MORINGA “the Miracle Tree”


I first was introduced to Moringa during a stressful time when I was about 7 months pregnant.  I was extremely sick and throwing up and could barely keep any food down.  Not even a fruit popsicle.  Tired of staying at my boyfriend’s house, I went to my parents house.  My Mom said she had just gotten a new drink called Zija.

I had been sick for months.  At first it tasted kind of funny, like a slightly sweet light guava juice with wheat grass in it.  It had a small bite at the tip of the tongue, but that goes away after you get use to it. It tastes better chilled and comes in a tiny can made from a different type of material other than aluminum because that preserves it’s shelf life and doesn’t give off the harmful poisons most of us aren’t knowledgeable  about that aluminum cans do.

I immediately had energy, and ate a huge dinner.  I drank Zija for the rest of my pregnancy and felt great and energetic and had few problems.  Inspired by my personal experiences I decided to become a marketer for Zija.  As it is a MLM company, some people can shy away from that.  But MLM companies can be highly successful if you can set up your downline correctly.  My dad spent $10,000 on big shipments of Zija and brought them out to sell personally.  He bought it under someone under me, so I got commission as well, as the company has a 10 level pay out system.  I drank Zija for years, but unfortunately as the bad economy hit, so did my income, and a $100 a month for 30 cans was just too much. The thing that was interesting about Zija is that there was a formula (I believe it was called Z-atin) they had in it that made your body utilize all the nutrients and absorb more of all that healthy goodness than your body normal would.  This was an all natural drink.  No preservatives, no colors, no artificial flavors.

The main ingredient is a common tree called Moringa.  In Hawaii the Filipino’s all have it growing in their yard.  They call it Calamungi.  In Africa, it is called Malawi.  Madonna’s charitable organization, “Raising Malawi”  in the city of Lilongwe is about growing plants because of their great nutritional and healing values.  It started with Madonna planting a Moringa tree.

The benefits of Moringa are many.

  • 7 types of Vitamins
  • 6 types of Minerals
  • 18 types of Amino acids
  • 46 types Anti-oxidants
  • High concentration of natural Anti-inflammatory agents
  • Natural Anti-toxins, Anti- tumors, Anti-bacterial and Anti fungal.

Moringa Oleifera main medicinal uses:

  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Cleans the body from toxins and heavy metals
  • Extermination of parasites in the intestines
  • Supporting treatment during radiation and chemotherapy
  • Supporting treatment during lack of appetite in children and adults
  • Helping with Osteoporosis treatment
  • Supporting with Diabetes treatment
  • Intestine infections
  • Gum infections
  • Prostate infection
  • Various skin diseases
  • Breathing disease
  • Head aches and Migraines
  • Arthritis
  • Gout
  • Hair Loss

A bottle of Moringa capsules could cost as much as $40! But I might just buy them so I don’t have to deal with mess of powder.

An inexpensive alternative?  My mom now grows her own Moringa trees and dries the leaves and makes it into a powder.  It is easy to care for, is drought resistant, can be grown in poor conditions, and dirt with low ph levels and doesn’t require much care.  Moringa is a wild growing, hardy tree.  Although it is hard to mix with water, as all the pieces of leaves float and don’t mix well, it still is highly effective when I am sick.

Giving birth to Kai was easy, even though she was almost 8 lbs.  She’s a big girl, and is the biggest child in her classroom.  Perhaps she is so healthy and big because of my use of Zija when I was pregnant.  When she was little I continued to give her Zija.   She was healthy and didn’t have her first flu until she was over 1 year old.  It’s also a great alternative to boost your work out.  All those nasty supplements on the market can be harmful for your body.  Who am I to talk?  I have been living on Lipo6 for months now.

Out of all the Moringa forms I have tried, I believe the Zija drink is the most effective.  Maybe because of the Z-Atin formula created to boost the effects.  But possibly, it is a placebo in my head.
