Out of touch politicians

It’s sad to see some many politicians upset and calling for boycotts of Burger King. They are so far out of touch on reality that they can’t see the policies they implement have caused this to happen. If a company sees an advantage merging with a company with a better tax code, good for them. Canada has a 26% business tax rate and the US has a 40% rate. Policies matter. Wake up America! Think before you vote! Take time to review candidates before voting.

Dads

As the kids get older and things change. It becomes very obvious how important being a dad is. I mess up everyday, but I try to learn from my mistakes and move forward. I don’t want to be my kids best friend, I want to be a mentor they can learn from and show by example. If you are am “I need more” parent your kids will see that and become like that. I’m trying to become a less is more parent. Saving is better than spending. Get a smaller house with better things inside. Find fun free things to do around your area. Become a 1 TV house. Grow a family garden. Plant a fruit tree. Just be a TRUE family unit.

Prayers

Please pray for everyone in Hawaii as the 2 hurricanes pass by the islands.

Also pray for everyone in areas throughout the world with wars going on. My god bless all the innocent affected.

Schools

Kids are heading back to school over the next month. Use this school year to see what your kids school needs and think of ways to help. Education is a family event. If your school rating is below average, try and get active and help improve the school. Teachers are in the class to guide kids and parents should be helping their kids learn what is being taught. If you don’t like what the school is teaching make it a point to be at school meetings and state why you think its wrong and provide a better solution. Become a true family unit and get involved. Start parent groups and brain-storm on ways to improve the schools in your area.
