America's Beautiful Spring of the Year
We Americans should be looking forward to a new beginning after the last two years we battled through.
Now would be the time to plan our family vacation when school is out. We could always feel safe and secure in our country to visit other states and travel to Paris if we wanted to, or any other country.
Was the American dream just a dream? Are we now living in a nightmare? Will there always be a war somewhere? Why can't we buy food now like in 2019? And especially, I want to fill my tank with gas and just ride around the countryside. We should be out in the sunshine on a picnic by the river or the beach--even better.
NATO --The North American Treaty Organization
NATO, per my research, is hated by Russia's President Putin. NATO demanded that Putin immediately stop the war. I am sure Putin's laugh echoed throughout his fabulous domain.
Since NATO will not send its troops into the Baltics because they are afraid it will start WW3, Hello! We are in WW3 now. Are you waiting for Russian troops to land on the Alaskan shores and take over Alaska? Putin wants Alaska.
Forgive me for saying this—but my mother's PTO (Parents and Teachers Organization) would be faster in moving against Putin since he destroyed the country of Ukraine. Putin is the reason 4.3 million children in Ukraine are displaced. 4.3 million children—that is half of the children's population in Ukraine.

My first question is why are all members of Congress not Americans? This is America and we do not want any foreign influencers making decisions about our country.
Congress sits on their hands and makes no rules to this effect. At least 76 members of Congress, which equals 14% of the 117th Congress, were born in another country or have a parent born in another country.
I personally call them foreign influencers. I hope these people are checked out by all the security agencies like the FBI and Homeland Security.
Threats or kidnapping of a family member could be used to apply pressure to do their bidding as well as other Congress members.
Where are our leaders that we elected to protect our country and its people? They seem to have their own agenda outlined with greed, money in their pocket, and all the power they can claim.
President Biden Joins the Business Roundtables
At the CEO Quarterly meeting, our President Biden delivered an updated speech to businesses. This is a very informative and needed speech by our president. A current event speech with a heads-up on the dangers we face in the coming days in security.
Towards the end of his speech, it is clear what he said about the 'New World Order.' Hear it in his own words.
President Biden's Speech
My Political Opinion about President Biden and President Trump
President Trump has done a lot for the United States of America and its citizens. We could buy gas for $2.17 per gallon, and yesterday I paid $4.49 per gallon. Before the pandemic started, the grocery shelves were full.
President Trump was a strong president and, since he was not a politician but a businessman, he knew how to handle most issues that arose during his term.
We did not experience high prices at the grocery store or gas stations with President Trump.
President Biden has acted in the American people's best interests with the exception of stopping the pipeline and dealing with terrorists to negotiate gasoline deals. His expectation of all Americans purchasing electric vehicles at 60,000 is unrealistic.
Electric cars, per my research, are at least $19,000 to $25,000 more expensive than the same model of gas-operated cars.
People can barely buy enough groceries to feed their families. I, like many others, can only afford to eat one meal a day, and most of the time it is without meat or veggies.
I know it is way over my head. I drive a 1999 Rodeo SE Isuzu—it is 23 years old. I bought it new in 1999. This is my baby--I named it "Giddy-Up-Go. I pray it will last a little longer. I can only buy a few gallons at a time, like most people. However, you never hear about how people are still struggling in the small towns and rural areas of Florida and other states.
Our state of Florida did not get a stimulus or any kind of check from our governor, Ron DeSantis, like many states did. However, now he is running and asking for donations from the people who cannot buy food and gas. You cannot make this up.
Some governors cannot relate to the people, nor understand their struggles since the present government in office has made life in America the worst ever.
Our ancestors came from different countries to settle a new land eons ago. I cannot swear to how the world was then or the type of people that were waiting for the ships to land.
I know these brave people came with all their possessions they could carry. Many paid for their journey by selling everything they owned, and many became indentured servants for seven (7) years or more to pay off their debt. The heartbreak was that many died on the journey.
Despite the fact that we have been through a terrible two years, strong Americans in the United States have such kind and caring hearts. And some are still suffering from the pandemic and inflation.
Open hearts are the Americans, and many other countries' ways of sharing with the people of Ukraine. The Ukrainians have escaped the terror of an evil dictator who does not even care for his own people—as he speaks of cleansing.
I am American-born and I will not accept a world where babies, women, and the elderly are killed. What a barbaric world we live in when young boys are sent into battle along with fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and nephews.
I trust President Biden to complete the work he has started in saving as many lives as possible. He walks quietly, but will his soft words carry the message to the evil power that only wants to kill.
Americans First--Party Choice Should be Second
I always vote for the person---not the party. All members of each party are not clones. Therefore, not all members think the same on issues.
So much time is wasted on both parties trying to destroy the other, until not a lot is accomplished. The members, most of the time, act like children playing in a sandbox, fighting over a shovel and pail. One has the shovel and the other one has the pail--and cannot find the solution to the dilemma.
They need to work together to better serve the American people and their country. It seems to get worse with each new president.
I am thinking maybe we need a woman president. Most of the women in my family are strong and make the best decisions for their families, no matter how difficult the issues might be.
Yes, a strong woman. And then I think who in our government now would make a great president. Someone who is not owned by lobbyists, influencers, elephants, or donkeys (HA!)
I know if our government does not put Americans and the United States of America first--we will become a third world country without money or food. And then, we would not need gas!
