Our Office Fish Likes Ellen!

Thought you all could use some humor this Thursday afternoon...

Meet, Nate!  Nate enjoys long swims in his bowl, and of course, Ellen Degeneres!  We named him Nate because he absolutely HATES anything other than green in his bowl.  He is very particular about the color scheme in his environment, thus, "deeming" him worthy of being named after our favorite designer, Nate Berkus!  Here he is, enjoying some Ellen TV!!!  Oh yes, we almost forgot...he LOVES watching finding Nemo too...maybe that's why he is so hooked on Ellen?

I'm NOT Sorry! I LOVE America!

I have to write this post today because I think it's important!  Initially when I read through the comments of my post from September 11-about a review of Obama's America 2016-I was taken back!  Here's the comment...

AND-I'd written a very long response to the now "Anonymous" (now) un-follower....but I thought since they don't follow anymore, they might not get it.  SO-please read the comments under that'll find it...there are only two.'s what I say to you...."Anonymous"...

Actually-the article was written by Scott Paulson, who happens to write political news and commentary for CBS Local and and teaches English at a community college in Chicago...typical very liberal.  It didn't come from Fox News.  I apologize if I've offended you.  I'm simply exercising Freedom of Speech, which just so happens to be protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.  And, you're exercising yours, which is why I'm leaving it up here.
It's a great film, and I thought the commentary was very well written, and non-partisan.  AND-if you must know, I'm a fiscal Conservative, and social Liberal...much like a Libertarian.

HOWEVER, I see why you think I'm a right-wing extremist-I have a different opinion of President Obama than you-(which, lemme guess-makes me a racist too?) I think Obama's policies are bologna,  his supercilious demeanor actually makes me cringe, and he's an embarrassment to our Great Country!

I see you've changed your name to Anonymous-well, I'm not hiding behind anything.  This is my blog and I'm not afraid to stand up for what I believe in.  I want my kids to have a better life than I did-I want them to live in the land of opportunity.  I want them to recognize that they, just like you and me, were created equal, endowed by their Creator-given rights such as Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness-and also just like you and me, they have freedoms that my Great-Grandfather fought for in WWII-and my cousin -and a few friends of mine whose husbands fight for every day.  Certainly you, and everyone else can appreciate that-that's why we can agree to disagree right?  Isn't that what our Great Country is all about in the first place?

I appreciate your opinion.  There's nothing like sparring first thing in the morning-  I'm not going to call you names, rather-I'll just disagree with you.  It's too bad you can't do the same because all of my projects, DIY's, tutorials and such-well, they're non-partisan.  I'm not going to apologize for for being an American, and having an opinion of my own because too much blood has been shed so I can have this Freedom-to have my own opinion!

Happy Friday!

So there you have it!  If you're still a reader-I'm happy to have you here.  And if you're political views are different than mine-I'm still happy to have you here.
