There’s something wrong with America

There’s something terribly wrong going on with America. You’ve got Nuns saying that Trump is the most pro-life President, that America has ever had. You have police shooting unarmed citizens in the back. You have white supremacist’s murderers being called heroes for murdering fellow Americans, for them daring to say that Black Lives Matters.

There’s something terribly wrong going on with America. Where children can cross borders with an AR15, just to murder human beings. While the police give them water bottles and cheering them, for children fighting for them.

There’s something terribly wrong going on with America. Where a man is told that “son of a bitch should be locked up” While calling white supremacists “fine people.

Diversity is an American value. It’s what makes any country awesome.

Halloween

*starts to sing*

Here a few of my favourite…Halloween…things…

Although I am Australian, I have celebrated Halloween in American before. I’ve been able to find quiet a few of my favourite things in Australia.

Enjoy…Be Safe!

I am Australian

I get asked this question…a lot! Especially since people have noticed that I am actually Australian, but seem to be heavily involved with American politics. I love it when people ask me “Why?”

People in America, mainly uneducated ones, don’t seem to realise that Trumps actions, his rulings, his tariffs affect people ALL AROUND THE WORLD…NOT just America. As a Globe we are far too connected to be “them vs us”. It’s just not possible anymore.

Take the Tariffs as an example: If it does happen, Trump will end up adding BILLIONS onto Australia’s debts. Australia also has a good exchange program with the Chinese, with children’s parents sending their children to each other countries. This would be too expensive to continue. Steel to build homes have gone up by at least 7k. Yes, Australians should be angry about that.

Too deny that our Politicians haven’t been influence by Trump is ridiculous. We have the lame politician called “Pauline Hanson” if you’ve never heard of her, it’s because she is a ridiculous politician. She’s the “leader” of the One Nation party and you’ll find that a lot of people who support Trump, support her. She is the politician that very recently put forward a motion saying that she wanted the House to say that “It’s okay to be white”. She toasted Trumps “victory” on live tv and then the report on her party was that they were dangerous. Yet, she still idolises him.

Teddy Bear Day =D

It’s an ideal time to get together with others for a teddy bear’s favourite activity, having a picnic, as immortalised in the classic song, ‘Teddy Bear’s Picnic.’ This was written in 1907, shortly after teddy bears were first manufactured in Europe and America. The American toy bears were named Teddy, in honour of President Theodore Roosevelt, who had refused to shoot a small captured bear on a hunting trip. Many teddy bears have become famous over the years, including Paddington Bear, Rupert Bear, Pudsey Bear and, of course, Winnie the Pooh.

If you know me, I am the teddy bear Queen! Even though I am pretty sure that it’s an American holiday.

I think I figured it out…

It’s not a gun problem, a mental health problem…

I honestly think the problem with American and it’s gun, is that it’s a completely self-entitlement problem.

You have a country that it’s entire background is based on purely a self-freedom.

Whenever I’ve ever gotten into a “discussion” (it’s hard to have a grown up discussion with people who are “gun nutty”) everything that they say is about themselves, it’s never about the people who got shot. “Their” rights,”their” freedoms”, you trying to take away “their” toys…ME, ME, ME…

You look at people like the Kardashians for example. They are a fantastic example of self entitlement. They have literally become “famous” and rich off of selfies and themselves…Is it really impressive though? That the Kardashians can play a country that are completely self obsessed with self anyways?

Or when people say “All Lives Matter”…well duh, but right now we are focusing on the Black Lives Matter because at the moment we are focusing on why are they getting unjustly shot in the streets…Can they just focus on that for like two seconds? I’m sure if they actually focused on BLM for more than a second rather than getting all knee jerky, they’d actually SEE the problem.

Now saying all this, clearly not ALL Americans are like this…In fact, I’d say the majority of Americans ARE about others, and not about ego. However, the problem is the people in power are all about “ME, ME, ME”

Amendments

So this is what “Amendment” means:

“a minor change or addition designed to improve a text, piece of legislation, etc.”

In others words…The word Amendment means it CAN be changed. Any of them. I was thinking about it…I am sure that the American forefather made it those words, so things can be changed. Although I was “told off” and told that the Government can’t touch the Bill of Rights…So why call them Amendments if they can’t be changed? Or if the people really want something changed, it can’t be? Or is it an American thing where everybody else has the same meaning for the word “amendment” and American just HAS to be different with it?

One month…Kind of…Halloween!

Now in Australia we don’t really celebrate Halloween, it’s still very much an American thing. However, it does seem to be on the rise “down under” Halloween has brought up some very important issues these last few years. From issues relating too appropriate costumes, to the decorations to “pranks”.

Also “A nightmare before Christmas” is my favourite…Just ever,lol

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Answer the 11 questions they gave you.
  • Nominate 11 blogs.
  • Give them 11 questions to answer.

The Questions I Was Asked:

  • Are you excited for any particular movie this fall / winter?

I cannot WAIT for the new Thor movie. I have seen all of the Marvel movies and I love how they’ve all interconnected. This one looks like it just full of awesome stuff the whole time. I can’t wait to see what Dr Strange does either. I didn’t expect to love the Dr Strange, but it’s probably one of my favourites and now I can’t wait to see what he does in this movie!

  • If you could go anywhere to see the fall foliage, where would you go, and why?

I would love to go England, I have been there during the Summer. However, I would love to see all of that green turn that beautiful yellow, brown and oranges. It would be fantastic.

  • Is there a new TV show that you are excited to watch?

I can’t wait to see the new Will and Grace series!

  • Do you have any Halloween traditions?

Since I live in Australia, we don’t really have Halloween here as a traditions, but it is definitely growing in popularity. The one that I really do love though is pretty much all of it honestly, haha! I just really love the whole spirit of Halloween. The themed parties, the costumes…I’m not really a scary movie type person though.

  • Who are your three favorite authors, and why?

Jodi Picoult – I love how she writes about topics that are now and relevant. What I love the most though is the twist that she always has.

I might just write about two that I’ve written below about. My other two favourite authors are C.S. Lewis and J.R.R Tolkien. I love the fantasy and how well written they are. One way that I can tell that I am enjoying the book is I make believe myself as a character in the book. I enjoy the book that much I wish to be apart of the book as well. A little embarrassing to admit but true.

  • Is there a particular author that you want to meet in person?

There is actually two authors that I would have loved to have met, but they are both dead now. I would have loved to have met C.S. Lewis and J.R.R Tolkien. While there are modern authors that I would want to meet in persons. These two authors have taken my imagination to places of happiness I never thought possible. It would have been amazing to be a fly on the wall of these authors!

  • Design your perfect library / reading nook / reading spot.

Wow! This could be a whole post in itself.

  • Do you use your local library?

Not only do I use my local Library, but I am now working at it also.

  • Do you shop for books on Black Friday / Cyber Monday?

Once again, because I am not American we don’t really have in store Black Fridays and Cyber Monday. However, thanks to the wonder that is the Internet, we actually have now started to get Internet deals for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Which I always take advantage of!

  • When you celebrate holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, etc., what book or books do you pack when you travel?

Oh this is a good question. I usually will take a favourite or two. I tend to not take many books, because not only is it kind of rude to read when you’re with your family. Especially at Christmas though I tend to always get a new book.

  • What is your favorite book to read during the holiday season?

I enjoy reading any favourites that I might have lying around. As mentioned above those as well, I tend too read any new books that I may have purchased or received as a present. So I don’t really have a set book that I’ll read. I am hoping though to purchase a tablets, I think it’d be great when I visit my partners family over the holidays. They all live out in the middle of nowhere and all pretty much go to bed early. Last year I got food poisoning, luckily though my partner had downloaded some movies to this little laptop he has.
