He Is OUR President.

I dont agree with everything he says because our country gives us the freedom to pick what we believe.

He Is OUR President.

Yes. I am a white, middle class women. Yes. Not that it should matter to you but I'll let you know anyway. I voted for Trump.

I am pro-life and I believe in same sex marriages, you should get what you work for, not all homeless people are homeless because they are lazy, minimum wage shouldn't be raised to $15 an hour, Louisiana should change its constitution so we can do budget cuts in more places than just the 2 most important policies: education and health. I believe government funds like food stamps and welfare are not bad things if you truly need them and that women need equity.

On social media everyone seems to make all white people racist, all colored people thugs, all Chinese, Vietnamese, and Japanese people super smart. STEREOTYPES.

According to Merriam-Webster.com a stereotype is an often unfair and untrue belief that many people have about all people or things with a particular characteristic.

Just because I am white doesn't mean I am racist and just because I am a woman doesn't mean I am all for women equality. Saying all Muslims are terrorist is like saying all Whites are racist. Either way it's not accurate. Technically its equity first, equality later. You cant fight for women and men to be equal because we are not. We're different and can not be treated the same. However, if women fought for equity in how the world treats them, it would be a legitimate fight, since your demanding to have the same rights that men have. Equality only works when everyone starts at the same level, you have to have equity before equality.

I think we have a president who is finally willing to put its people first and a lot of people are just really pissed about it. But in case you didn't know; the US is over 19.8 trillion dollars in debt and has over 49,933 homeless veterans, 402,378 kids in the foster care system, along with 7.5 million of people unemployed. We cant even take care of our own people and you expect us to care for millions of others. America is not what it used to be and we are just incapable of helping everyone.

I am Pro-LIFE from a baby to elderly. Black, white, Muslim, it doesn't matter. A life is a life and this is not a Muslim ban. Its a ban against 7 countries that the majority of their population is Muslim. These countries are the countries listed by the Obama Administration as the counties of concern. But guess what? There are over 40 other countries in that surrounding area that's majority population is Muslim and they aren't ban. They aren't ban because they're has been no terrorist activity /alert/ worry coming from those places. This ban is technically not even a ban and its not permanent. They are going threw a vetting process which means they are doing background checks on people. When and If a person has been cleared they will be allowed back into the United States.President Obama did the same thing in 2011. Personally, I have no problems with people crossing the border, refugee, immigrant or just a visitor on vacation. I believe you are and should be welcome here if you come here to make a better life for yourself, applying for a visa/green card, etc, paying your taxes and being a productive member of the America society.

We call keep fighting and protesting but honestly it doesn't seem to be getting us anywhere. There was no riots, fighting, etc when the tables were turned the other way. No I don't agree with everything Trump says but that's with anything. Our country gives us the FREEDOM to let us pick and choose what we believe in. Trump wasn't even in office yet, and wasn't given a chance. So wait a few months and see where he gets us. He is our president.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
