How is it that President Trump is pro-vaxx and hasn’t lost my support?

Well, I’m not a zealot.

I think people think I live this quiet life of a nun who never sins! Oh, the scandal when people find out I sin too!

We all have our own right to live our lives as we choose to, that’s the point, right? My point in sharing the many reasons eating junk is bad for you, is not to create a mindless cult that lives off oatmeal, but to let people know that there are a great many more options than we know with lots of detailed information to consider.

I’ve made a lot of fuss over Walmart, which to me is the face of Big Tech because Walmart affects so many. Their lower prices leave us shopping there instead of getting the same product for more elsewhere, elsewhere being where us businesses are trying to be successful. But I have to admit that I do not hate them for their success nor do I resent them for it; Mr. Walton had the same right the rest of us do at success. My problem lies in this being just one piece of the puzzle in the grand scheme of our deliberate collective struggle to make it in life.

It used to be that one income could easily support a family home with plenty left over for a comfortable life, now we can’t have a home to ourselves without needing a roommate, or with the necessity of both mom and dad to have jobs to make ends meet leaving babies to be raised by daycares and babysitters.

I have found that being a parent is the hardest job to have, and I have worked both heavily physical and heavily mental jobs. The job of a parent is tough especially today with the pressures of the Medical Industry on how what is “safe” is being delivered by Big Pharma, what “healthcare” is “supposed” to look like, and we must all abide and agree upon the same milestones our babies are supposed to meet otherwise they are slow or there must be something wrong with them or us. Or with the heavy presence Board of Education in our lives, being told how we are to raise our kids or else we are irresponsible parents.

I’ll never forget when a coworker told me that her son was put in counseling and had been for a while and she wasn’t made aware of it. No one talked to her about it or asked her anything, this child’s teachers and school staff took it upon themselves to put him into counseling all on their own because he was a bit of a troublemaker. I can’t tell you what I would do if someone else parented either of my sons like this without my consent. Am I saying counseling is bad? Of course not, what is horrible is assuming that one can take it upon themselves to dictate what is an issue and how it should be dealt with when it comes to someone else’s kids. Aka, the staff at this school felt entitled.

I choose not to send my kids to public school for this reason and many others. One big reason I choose to homeschool is because of an interview with a woman who was on the Board of Education for many years. She said obedience is what is taught in public schools, that it’s worker bees they want not critical thinkers who would question the narrative, she even used the words “slaves” when describing what the point of public school is; yet it’s my kids who are pitied for not contributing in this.

If there was a private school in my area that aligned with our beliefs such as a Montessori School, I would be all over that. I care about my kids’ education, I would like to think more so than the average parent, just not the way the majority do. It is so important to me that my kids think critically that they question absolutely everything in life. My partner and I were both naturally rebellious growing up, these genes have intensified in my kids. I want them to have all the ammo in their arsenal they can have when they rebel too, it can’t be just passion but informative reasons and consequences that could be avoided. I want them to know they can stand on their own 2 feet and accomplish whatever the world throws at them with ease, if they try hard every day too.


At the beginning of this plandemic, POTUS tried to tell people that Convid is a hoax and he was demonized for it. The majority of the people are sheep, and the sheeple want a vaccine, they are afraid! They can be seen driving alone in their cars wearing masks or gathering in groups at one person’s home as long as it’s not a holiday they were told not to celebrate.


I try not to judge these people, or even pity them for that matter, if they wanted to know better, they would, ignorance is a choice; but one must never underestimate the power and repercussions of fear.

When I say vaccines are harmful, I don’t expect everyone listening to believe me immediately and stop vaccinating. Though I need to stop expecting anything at all cos the only one hindered is me when expecting, a small part of me does expect people to investigate. Investigations are left to the same puppets of the cabal, they are cogs in a machine and don’t know it themselves, and then we expect them to see the dangers and warn us.

We pray to God hoping this external entity will save us and take no measures to save ourselves then laugh at those seeking to save us. What a sick cycle the cabal has meticulously crafted.

How much can we blame on the cabal and how much is up to us? It is a baby’s fault for grabbing a cup of water and spilling it or is it the caretaker’s fault for leaving it within babies reach? In this scenario the people are the baby, and the caretaker is the government putting the vaccine where it can be reached. What we fail to realize is that we are babies because we are ignorant, we base our choices on blind faith that governmental and private institutions have dictated our trust; and that’s what I mean to shatter. A blind faith in the medical institution has many side effects leading up to death, it’s listed on countless medications. And a blind faith in the Board of Education has its side effects that can be seen for example in a child’s chance to not learn how to read if the parent/guardian is not making sure they do because not every school, not every teacher makes sure that every child does learn to read by the 2nd grade.

I let a family member know that when my kids are older and have been homeschooled for a few years already and they decide they want to go to public school then it would be up to them. They said, “that’s good!” and seemed relieved. Sigh, I’m also not a dictator.

So, does this mean I only ever eat vegetables and never chips? That I never go to Walmart or shop at Amazon? That every single detail in my life is researched? That sounds stressful as hell. I commend the people who can eat a strict plant-based diet, that’s doing it right and one will see the best benefits. I cook for a family of 4 and my family eats a lot, sometimes I need the help of a pre-made plant-based burger found in the frozen section. As much as I try, I don’t always prepare to have things ordered and ready to be here on time when we need them.

Why do I have to be perfect anyway to talk about these things? No one is. It’s almost as if my reputation is based on whether or not I follow my own rhetoric. I try! I try my damnest every day to do the best I can, that’s all I have for you, when I eat chips, judge me, go ahead, but I’ll wonder what all you ate that day as well. Eating is a very personal thing that is individual, and we all have the right to eat what we want, I eat chips knowing that my life could be shortened by it vs. being lengthened by eating celery, that’s my right and I choose it.

My point is that I’m not trying to tell anyone what to do though I can see how that can be misconstrued, I’m just trying to let people know that there are options and so many things to consider when making said choices. The grey in between the black and white is what we leave up to politicians, all I’m saying is we don’t have to do that, we can inform ourselves and conduct ourselves accordingly. I would rather do that then succumb to being told what to do, even if I’m called crazy for it.

I don’t have to explain myself to anyone, that’s not what this is. What this is, is reminding ourselves that no one is perfect so we can stop being so hard on ourselves, and to study, look things up, see what happens. I say I eat chips then you look up all the different kinds and what the side effects of eating them are and then you can call me crazy!

We can eat what we want, vaccinate ourselves and our kids if that’s what we think is best, shop where is most convenient, my question is, what side effects do these actions have in the long term?

My love for humanity, and for the planet, has set me on a path of healing through love, compassion, and understanding. I'm originally from a big city in the big state of Texas, making my personality quite large. I then landed in a small town that's out-of-puzzles gorgeous where people still wave at each other when coming across each other in the street. This transition has helped my development and tried relationships with distance and sacrifice. I have 2 beautiful boys, Silas and Declan, and their loving father, Curtis, who make my world go round. My political views all stem from wanting to protect this beauty in all its forms.
