You want to rant and rave?

 As a Southern Navy Wife, I take pride in my nation. I take pride in our boys in uniform. I take pride in the wives of our communities. With that being said, where is your pride? I have listened at the commissary, seen it on Facebook, followed you on Twitter... Where is your pride? Why are we airing our dirty laundry for the world to see? If we have a problem with the way things are run, what are we supposed to do? CALL YOUR GOVERNOR!! How many of you have called and talked to your governor? I know I haven't. Shame on us! We are quick to step back and point the finger, but remember what your momma always told you, " for every finger you are pointing, there are 4 pointing right back at you!" Let's stop bashing the government our men are fighting to protect and uphold. And let's start taking some accountability for ourselves! You want to change things around here?! It starts with you! And me!! So here is to calling our Governors in the morning!
  And Ladies! Please remember, they don't want to hear about how bad you have it, they want to hear you tell them "STAND UP FOR US!" Don't waste their time with your sob story, a brief conversation letting them know we have faith in them will do. Be polite, but be firm! "We want the pay check we have earned, please and thank you!" I have faith in all of you! Do the right thing!!
  Secondly, if you still want to help... 
 Make a couple of extra plates at your dinner table, there are bound to be the couple of people who are going to need it. Let's pool together and make this work folks! Remember, we are a family. And for alot of us, this is the only family we have. Be loving, be kind, be gracious, and make your glass half FULL! 
  Until I see you again, 

- Cam

Day one on the job and I am stumped

Just getting this site up was a fete in itself... BUT here I am!
This is here so that we as the smaller sector of the US can have somewhat of a say so. I know that this isn't going to make big headlines, and I know that we can all rant and rave about things that are not fair, but let's use this site to try to find ways to make the unfair, fair again. I have a dear friend who is knowledgeable in what seems like ALL aspects of life, it may help that she has been around for a lot longer than most of us. Whatever the reason, I aim to be as educated as she is in this area of my life.
 I feel it is a shame that I do not know how to vote. I know how to vote in the state of Georgia, but in California I need an absentee slip? See?! I honestly don't even know what I need to vote here. And to be frank, I don't know how to find out what to get, or where to go to get informed. I wonder how many other people feel this way? If you do not vote, honestly you have no right to gripe and complain... BUT we all still do! Well for the time being let's all read and educate ourselves AND THEN VOTE! And then we will have the right to gripe and complain! So here goes nothing! Let the rants, raves, AND encouragement begin!
