I suppose there could be many other things to talk about. But I'm not really bothered about my age. Years ago it was a thing for a woman not to tell of her age and considered rude if someone were to ask it. But now more and more people are becoming health conscious and that is reducing the oxidative stress that is put upon the body. Oxidative stress is an imbalance between the antioxidants and free radicals in the body. When these free radicals are out of balance they damage DNA, proteins along with fatty tissue in the body. This causes they body to develop diseases and is what causes the body to age. This is because the free radicals do a lot of damage to the growing cells in the body by causing impairment to cellular DNA. Once the body has a mutation of harmful DNA it begins to age and one's health will decline as a result. I'm into supplements because the fast and processed foods that are made honestly cause our bodies to age quicker than we would like them to. My regimen really started as a way to keep from getting hungry because I did not have money to eat lunch. So I calculated how much I would need in a months time to eat and I found that by taking supplements that I would save more money because they were a lot cheaper(when bought in bulk) and used on a daily basis. This meant that I only spent a few dollars a day for lunch by consuming these supplements, and therefore didn't have to go worrying about being hungry because the supplements helped me throughout the day. I still continue my regimen to this day because salaries seem to not include what it costs to eat these days, but the supplements last over a period of time and can save on the average of two meals per day. Eating can be quite expensive. So I tell my age and let people think what they want because in a few more years if I'm too old to work perhaps they will allow people to retire without penalty in collecting of social security. Really, if the job market has a problem with my age or becomes discriminatory with regard to it- people should be allowed to collect their social security because they would then be unable to find jobs or employment. So tell your age, yay!
Why is it that only immigrants are seen as "dreamers" in this country? It is as if some biased person who was out for their own personal interest and belief along with other people, took the MLK speech of "I Have a Dream" and turned it into a "Wade In The Water" mission for some. Honestly, where was the equality all citizens of this country. I'm speaking in adult terms because unless you're trying to reclaim your time you don't tell or imply to a fully grown adult, who did get an education to stay and mooch off of their parents, to rectify equality or equal treatment. This to me was simple regression, due to the fact that progress was halted or stalled due to the second class citizen treatment. Another way of say this is that second class citizens had to create their own opportunities for success or job satisfaction since they would not be accepted among the foundation of companies already established because such people are viewed upon as second class. If you ask me honestly, I think the whole civil rights movement was made a mockery of by using immigrants and the outsourcing of jobs to "reclaim the time" by keeping slavery ever present. Now if that isn't paranoia, insecurity, immature then I don't know what else is. Supremacy is usually to blame because these people are preoccupied with the sacrifice of others that do not look like them, so immigration is just the tool that is used to take the dream and provide it to others so to speak. You can't hate on an immigrant because they want freedom just as anyone else. The supremacist usually then creates a society of slavery within mom and pop parameters, so that one can do a tedious job day in and out, without too much assistance, as they exclude the second class citizen from other types of employment. Which is really pathetic because, you know as well as I do when working around certain types of people if they have any imperfections that challenge or affect the Aryan psyche, these people usually don't want them around, hence that means that's why they put them around the second class citizen. Which means that in terms of modern day slavery these are the jobs these idiots created. I can go on and on about the misery I went through in working for a doctor's office, but I will save that for a creative day. The question here is that once people make it ashore, or when things go belly up, recession, depression, inflation, due to the lack of spending etc.; will the government become upset or have a cow at the second rate citizen for trying to obtain money to eat, and have a place to stay and clothes to wear and transportation to get to and from? Why should they be? I mean, they gave all of that and then some to the immigrant and did not get upset and imply to go and stay with their parents. I get it, the second class citizen is in this country to work be it second class due to bias and the immigrant is put ahead of them to create oppression among the second class citizen. But if one wades too long, due to the reclaiming of time, the second coming is a dish served cold...
I like to use the word job because career to me is when you do something you actually choose instead of someone else choosing a job for you. I mean, don't you hate it when someone picks a job or livelihood so to speak for you as if they are doing the job themselves. Sure, it's easy for them because they don't have to do that job. Why do people think they know someone so well that they have a person do jobs that are not in their best interest, somewhat abusive and not to their liking? This means that you are probably doing a job for someone else. Like a duty or sacrifice, yup this sucks because not only are you being deprived of several things a career should provide for you, you are also doing a job that you don't like and being in a place you don't want to be, and one's happiness becomes of question. But if someone truly cared, why would they constantly make you unhappy? Then again, I answered my own question, it was to make someone else happy and to of course sacrifice. They great thing about a temp job is that you get to work at different places so you don't get bored as easily as you learn different things. If you dislike the people the job is not permanent so you don't have to worry about some forever in contact or keep in touch thing especially when you plan to ditch the people once the job ends. The not so good thing about a temp job is that you may not be on an assignment that is regular or long term, so if work is not constant or daily your will your income will be affected. You can only collect so much unemployment, so it would probably be best to find permanent work, so that at least you have a job to go to versus only working when a job becomes available. Permanent jobs used to provide benefits but to save money along with doing a sacrifice, things like vacation time, personal days, retirement savings, health insurance are not always provided, so does it matter anymore if one works temp or permanent? Who knows, if employers or business do not wan't to pay the rising cost of minimum wage then they will not pay for days off. Usually, smaller companies are the worst to work for because they do not have to comply with many of the laws and they are usually the ones who have the worst disposition towards their employees. So stay away from small companies especially if the job is permanent because there are usually no benefits associated with working for one. Permanent is best in a larger company, and those smaller ones are only good when doing temp jobs.
They say when it ain't broke don't fix it. True, true, but here's the thing when you need to try avoid being broke you need to get that side hustle on in order to try and get something for retirement. American sees most people as lazy and those who don't do good. So we don't want to contribute to the years afterwards of working. I've said this before that I get the reason why retirement has become a non issue in the workplace due to the fact than an employer does not want to provide money or subsidy when one is not in the office. What is really "nonsensical" is that they barely pay you enough when you are in the office or what is known as living wages. Now, what does this have to do with reinventing yourself? Well, one has to establish a sort of happiness within this horrible world whereby laws against workplace cruelty are for everyone and not just for some and people need to be protected from those who have hostile religious convictions. Yeah, now if that were done, most of the stress would be removed from people in the workplace. Although, there are those evil people who become upset when they feel people aren't working enough-so they walk around angry all day, but if we were to measure their religious convictions we would find a bias in there somewhere. Reinventing to me has to do with being able to live in a world where I can still be me or pursue what ever thing or passion I want to pursue while still working or being at a job to provide an income subsidy for myself. This takes time and a lot of effort considering that one spends just about one half of a day working, traveling and getting ready for and being at a job that does not pay very much. Yes, reinvention is necessary because one needs to be happy within and hopefully one day that hustle of invention will provide for retirement years later. It's a difficult thing to try and do but one just needs to find their true self and not be that person or being that one wants to make a religious conviction of cruelty out of in the workplace. I found that reinvention of myself establishes me as the person I want to be instead of being that person someone wants you to be, despite someone remaining in their religious convictions or stance regarding cruelty or purpose in the workplace. If you're only existing for what someone wants you to be then you probably won't make yourself happy. So there is work and then comes their reinvention of self so that one can do and be happy with all there is with what they wanted to do in life before people had a meeting with the minds and wanted those to 'mind clear' by implementing cruelty in the workplace by using hostile religious convictions and other forms of cruelty to establish an agenda towards a type of person. Yes, reinvention is necessary because it is the balance of cruelty and abuse these things happen to be. Reinvention is the mother of necessity...
Let's be real here, most of us can't wait for retirement. I'm not really worried about what I will do when I retire, because I know what I will not have to do any longer and that is work. Working is not only what you do once you arrive because you need to work but it's the grind of getting there and getting home also. They say work is not supposed to be fun, so now you should understand why people can't wait to retire. I vote that people should be able to make voluntary contributions to social security and medicare, in that social security and medicare are automatically deducted from paychecks of those who work for an employer. If you are self employed then you are responsible for making the deductions of an employer and employee, as this depends on how you work either as a business or independent worker. Which means in order to collect from social security and or medicare you have to pay into it. But what if you wanted to retire early? There is no law that says what age is too young to retire. Although, there is an age when you are eligible to collect your social security and medicare benefits, otherwise it would be a waste to leave them uncollected, since they money and benefits are yours and you have earned them by working. The law should be adjusted to accommodate those who want to retire early by paying into the social security system/medicare voluntarily. The more people contribute to the system in their early years of working, the more social security has to invest with to keep up with the demand of people retiring and the increasing cost of living. If a person even doubles or triples the amount of social security/medicare he or she contributes then, that money can be put to use by social security many years before a person actually retires. For example: if at the age of thirty, a person decides to take part in the voluntary social security and medicare contribution program. They continue to contribute money and their projected monthly payout will be adjusted according to what is contributed yearly. Which means that one can receive the maximum payout of social security regardless of what they earned or how long they worked because it is voluntary and not limited due to salary restrictions. Once they contribute enough to receive the maximum amount they need not pay into the system anymore because they have maxed out on contributions, with a mandatory twenty-five to thirty year contribution; after all is said and done that person may be able to retire at sixty or maybe even sooner. The great part for social security/medicare is that they receive an increase of contributions twenty-five or thirty years before people or retirees are eligible to collect it. In doing so this can alleviate the employment sector to make way for younger workers and those who are sixty or getting there and need their social security to be an amount worth the cost of living, so they can finally retire after working for so many years. If work is not supposed to be fun, then who want's to do it until they of course die? Let's remove this obstacle by having voluntary contributions to social security and medicare.
This seems like a long one. You know when you go to vote and hope that it will make a difference and you find that you just keep putting the same types of people in office. It's disappointing when this happens because their elected term turns out to be a very long one due to all of the problems a city may have. Mount Vernon New York is too small a town to go through what it does and is quite old enough to know the difference between many things. The problem here is we tend to put czar's or dictators in office who may have other political ambitions and are using the town to create a reputation for their political career. You may say well what is the problem? Despite the fact that a town may become bankrupt and without the necessary resources to keep it functioning, it still exists and appears like any other one in the area, but truthfully much damage has resulted due to the amount of years an elected official has been allowed to stay in office. Is it possible to change the law for towns that have under a certain amount of people and are not very large area wise so that in the event there is a leader that is not able to govern the town the way it should be, then another election can be held within three years to put another elected official in? It's not a bad idea and I only say it because when you have people or ones that hold office and they stay for eight years or so they can really ruin a town. If the state were to compare what a town had regarding resources before such elected official entered office and then compare it to what it has now along with the agenda of accomplishment, the people along with the state will see if they have the right person in office. This needs to be done every two years or so and if it is found that such an elected official has other aspirations and is just using a town to establish themselves, then it may be time for that person to move on after three years. This would reduce the time a person stays in office and so that a city or town is not a risk in any way due to a misguided government. In small towns whereby you have the same structure as a larger one in terms of voting, we neglect the larger picture because a smaller town may have fewer resources and once you get someone in office who does not have ones best interest, things get depleted rather quickly. In small towns you need to reduce this amount of time to prevent bankruptcy and possible take over due to unsatisfactory government. Four years may not seem like a long time but when the goals are not directed on what they need to be then that time is basically wasted, due to the outcome of the situations that occur. I vote that smaller towns or cities have elections every three years to prevent corrupt infrastructure from ruining them.
Like many people I like to load up on supplements. Why? Well it's cost effective and helps keep me in good health. Now, I know there are not many studies that will indicate that taking supplements will overall improve your health than eating a balanced diet; but for some who do it as a daily ritual you will find that they prefer to take the supplements so that they do not have to eat the processed foods to try and get some nutritious value out of them. Foods, even the cheaper kind that you find in wholesale or bulk buying stores are always having recalls for this and that so you still may be eating something that is not very good for you although it is food. The problem here is that, are we doing ourselves more harm than good by avoiding foods due to their highly processed and fatty content? Is any of that health worthy? Food is supposed to be enjoyable and not eaten like you are in space with no gravity to hold it down on your plate or napkin or whatever you eat off of. But if you are one of those who work through lunch, or become too tired to cook when you come home or lose your appetite when it's hot or even have the winter just give me a warm bowl of something kind of hunger then perhaps you are missing out on your daily nutrients because you are not eating a balanced diet. The food pill is designed to provide the body with actual meals in pill form. In doing so all of the processed and preservatives additives are taken out of the food and the food pill only contains the nutrients that are good for you. The food pill is designed for very picky eaters, people who are elderly or even ill. Hospitals spend many a dollar giving supplements in a IV bag to provide nutrition to a patient when the same food can given intravenous or in pill or powder form. For example chicken, fish and other poultry can be condensed into a pill for human consumption for those to digest and still get the nutritious value of eating those things. The same thing can be done with fruits and vegetables. By having a pill for of each, the body can have to correct amount of nutrients without the fatty content along with other additives that are in the foods to preserve them and to make food sustainable to last for a while before it is eaten. In caring for a sickly person the food pill is ideal because if they are unable to eat or won't eat they will not miss out on the much needed proteins and nutrients. Food pills made up of poultry, vegetables and fruits will have the actual value of having a meal without the preparation of one and will benefit those who are difficult to feed or who are under constraints and cannot eat regular meals. The food pill is not intended to replace the regular approach of preparing and eating meals, but it is an alternative one can use when actual eating is difficult or becomes too much of a chore. You don't need a medical prescription to buy and use the food pill and it can be sold in supermarkets or wherever you purchase supplements.
Being a temp is similar to working a job where you're the only one in the office. If you happen to not be in one day you have to do the work that you didn't do when you were out. So of course when you're a temp you don't get paid for days off; this includes holidays or sick time or personal days. This means that like being the only one in the office you had best to come into work or you will be affected one way or another. Also, depending on the temp agency not all of them provide benefits. So one can work but if an agency does not want to provide benefits then an assignment ends or they will provide benefits for a small amount of time and then you're on your own(the assignment ends). It's all about money and contribution, when companies have to pay they no longer want you on their payroll especially for things like health insurance, retirement and you know days off. But you have to look at it from the independent standpoint of things. With my salary I can't afford health insurance, so it would be free or next to nothing if I get it through the New York State of Health, and in that instance this all does not bother me since I am into the alternative health vibe and try not to have any real use for health insurance. So why pay for something you don't use except for emergencies? Retirement, I totally get it, why should a job or employer contribute to something that will be used when you are not working? I mean once you're retired you're home or in another state or country somewhere so why should they pay for you being elsewhere but in the office? Yes, it's become obvious that this is something you have to work out yourself. This includes days off including holidays because, you are not working those hours. I do wish that temporary or employment agencies would develop a program, think of developing countries(and they say the USA does not mimic a third world nation), that would allow a worker to set aside money as in a 'Days Off Savings Plan' for days off including holidays and personal days that could be used if a worker needs a day off or wanted to redeem a certain amount of money for the days that they don't get paid for. This would work like any savings plan, but it is deducted from your check in the amount of your choosing each week if you opt into the days off savings plan. As the money adds up and then when the holiday or personal time comes about you can request a portion of that money to be redeemed to you on your next paycheck. This way you're not so down and out when you get paid. The days off savings plan is entirely yours and the money belongs to you and all of the money you set aside will be given to you once an assignment ends or you no longer work for the agency or if you request it. I know, nobody wants to pay and you have to be part of the elite for company types of benefits, but with the days off savings plan, this introduces more choices for those who are usually left solo...
What defines moving forward? Is it getting a job paying more money and enabling one to afford benefits and being able to take care of themselves without relying on someone for rent and food etc.? Or is it that conversation that involves a "higher" paying job whereby one is employed to sacrifice for others(see last years events and clothing). In doing so you don't make much money and the benefits are usually for someone else. The world is made up of this concept and unfortunately has a warped setting in that it regresses society because as you guessed it this is the perfect way to be "uncivil" if you are of the confederate nature since those jobs often involve very, very, very tedious labor and as a result does not accomplish moving forward with regards to a persons success in life. But, it just makes it such that existing as a "higher being" is a way to treat people in life. Now, some things are not done deliberately and some things occur because they are desired to be that way since the equation of people is still not accepted as equal or on par to be civil enough to be around them in comparing salary and wages, benefits. So what does moving forward really mean? Would it be honest to say one is really moving back? Would it be honest to say one is ignorant in their attempts to have one move back? Would it be honest to say one is biased since they deliberately wanted someone to move back? There is caution to those who have biases against them because those that do have a disregard for their lives in that they have oppressed them and cause a certain amount of duress, you may even fear them because they live out of their own stupidity and lack of self worth. Moving forward should be just that as in one should be allowed to live life on their own terms and not be dictated by people who feel that regression is the only way to provide for the masses of people. In terms of doing what you like to do, we can always co-exist. That is a more appropriate term for the way that I live since oppression has become what is regular everyday being and the fact that society has excluded those in many aspects in that this is one of the few choices one has to figure out to make. When moving forward means existing or becoming a "higher being", co-existing becomes a way of life...
Mount Vernon,New York is a town with very little money. Usually that's what happens when you don't have a population of wealthy white collar workers. But, hey it's a town to live in and for the most part it's less expensive than other places in Westchester County. The problem is that the town is in need of garbage trucks and there seems to be a lack of money to buy, rent or lease them. Mount Vernon is not a town that advertises very much and in that instance they may want to offer to advertise a company, brand or product to defray the cost of paying for the much needed garbage trucks. For example: Each new garbage truck could be equipped with an electronic billboard that can be open to the advertiser of the towns choice. Huh? Let's say another wireless competitor comes into town and is looking for customers and has cellphone and cable tv type apps or products to sell. When you don't make a lot of money you are usually looking to save a buck, so they set up shop in the poorer towns to get customers, but without advertising people will not know what they actually have to offer. The wireless competitor needs customers to stay in business and a way to get customers is by advertising. If Mount Vernon had a billboard on their garbage trucks, they could advertise the wireless company and use that money towards paying for the new or slightly used garbage trucks. Revenue is a huge factor for this town and when you don't get money in taxes, donations or fund raisers to keep the town going there has to be a way to pay for things that a city government needs to out of necessity. It should not be seen as illegal because people advertise around town all of the time, as long as the money is appropriated to where it needs to be then there should be no problem. Why hasn't anyone appealed to the state government in terms of grants to fund a vital need for this community? I know there are cutbacks everywhere, but there should be money available to obtain good,decent garbage trucks for a town that is not very large. Who knows, there may be another city in Westchester who has garbage trucks that are still in good condition and they may be willing to donate them, if they are getting new ones. Mount Vernon needs to stop the trash talk and find intuitive ways to collect it!
