I hope you are having a terrific summer.
Do you know anything about Uniontown, Pennsylvania? If so, please email us any information you have. We need to find a place to live there. John starts a job there on the 18th of August. Details have still not been worked out yet. It is going to be a tough move.
Monday night, our apartment building got firebombed. John was very quick in putting out the fire. Fortunately, no one was hurt thanks to John's quick reacting and foresight in buying a fire extinguisher. The police have one of the bottles, but no one has done anything. They will not lift the prints off of the bottle until they have an actual suspect's name. We suspect it had something to do with the teen that lived upstairs with his grandmother who we heard was involved with drugs. But the police still have not questioned him. We have called the police, the district attorney's office, tried to call the chief of police, and called the mayor's office. No one is doing anything. So John stays up every night with his loaded pistols to protect us. Thank God that we still have the right to bear arms. Otherwise we would have no protection.
Write when you can.

At the farmer's market Saturday, there was a gentleman there who was compaining that he had 3 grown kids and only one of them has given him any grandchildren. What right does a parent tell a child to get pregnant. How ludicrious. It is not anyones responsibility to make their parents grandparents. After all, they are not going to be the one raising them. I work with a woman that made her 17 year old daughter keep a child conceived from a rape that the daughter did not want. But the woman I work with made her keep the child because it was her grandchild.
Parents tell you to listen to them, and then when you do, they tell you not to blame them. It is solely your fault. I think Billy Joel said it best when he sang, "I don't care what you say any more, it is my life. Go ahead with your own life. Leave me alone. ... "
Our apartment just got firebombed. Nothing like this has ever happened before and I am scared. The fire department and police said it was intentional. We do not know if they were targeting us or the people upstairs from us. Here we are worried about terrorism in other countries and we should be worried about the terrorism happening here. We are at war with crime.

It is time we started questioning our politicians and find our why we are in a serious recession? Why did we declare war on Iraq? Why are we destroying rain forests? Why are people in the world starving to death when farmers are paid money not to grow food? If you were the moon looking down on us, or better yet, God, what kind of questions would you ask, and what would you think of us? Do you care?

July 15th will be my 3 month anniversary at work. July 16th will be my 39th birthday. I am working both days. Tuesday, from 6am to around 11:30am doing the breakfast bar, and then Wednesday from 3pm to 11pm working front desk. Since I have to work 7am to 3pm Thursday, I will not be able to go out and celebrate my birthday. So I need to start early.:-)
Now for thoughts on politics:I am proud of Senator Byrd for standing up against Bush and the war machine. It is nice to see other Senators finally getting a clue. The Romans tried this and fell. Plus, the way this administration has lied and irresponsibly manipulated our country should be condemned, not rewarded. In the next election, the only person I can think of that would be worse than Bush is Lieberman. So I still have no clue who I will be voting for. But you can trust I will be voting despite Bushes illegal activities at the polls. We all know he was not elected in, but was nominated in through the supreme court and with the help of his brother in Florida. God help our country. Please.
The economy here sucks. And now Bush is making matters worse by changing overtime laws. Already, I will come into work and work off the clock for about a half hour sometimes before clocking in. It is common practice here in the states for employees to work off the clock so they do not get overtime. Walmart has made a practice of it and everyone knows it here. Managers at some Walmart stores will tell employees to clock out and then finish their work. And now Bush is planning to make it worse. In Europe, they get vacation time. There is no law here that requires an employer to give vacation time. Our country is quickly falling downhill, and anyone who speaks out is accused of being a traitor or unpatriotic. Our forefathers are probably turning in their graves right now of shame for all the work they have done is being undone like a fire destroying a beautiful forest. It is sad.
Corporations need to be held accountable for their actions. And their should be a law that companies who had a ceo that is now vice-president, should not be given government jobs. Especially when no other companies were allowed to bid for the job. It is just plain wrong.
It is also wrong that monopoly laws are being repealed and newsgroups are being owned by large corporations.
God help us all.
