What I Learned From Walt Disney

Never underestimate the power of The Muppets.

Excellent customer service really makes the cost, time and heat exhaustion you suffer worth it. Disney employees are supercalifragilistic to park visitors.

Epcot rocks. Cannot wait for Food & Wine Festival in September.

The Magic Kingdom is overrated. Except for Splash Mountain. That ride is the best. Especially if you Fast Pass it.

Except for The Muppets, forget Hollywood. Toy Story Land is neat architect-wise, but Andy needs some shade and stuff to do pronto. Very disappointed. Slinky and the aliens don’t cut it.

Most importantly, try to rip your visitors off as much as possible with exorbiant prices for food and souvenirs. Sandwiches and Wal-Mart, anyone?

It rains, sometimes pours. Every. Single. Day. At precisely 3:00 PM. With lightning and th

Bring good walking shoes. You’ll be doing a lot of it.

We Learn To Live When We Learn To Give

I don’t understand why people refuse to accept there’s good and bad in everyone.

Before anything else, we are all human beings.  We all breathe air, bleed blood, sleep, eat, defecate, procreate, we are all born and we all die.  And we all have the ability to be good people and bad people.

It doesn’t matter what sex you are, what your sexual orientation is, what your religious beliefs are, what your political beliefs are, your skin color, what country you’re from, etc.  Nobody. Is. Perfect.

Given this information, how can any person, and there are many, point at two other people, perfect strangers, a man and his mother from Mexico, and call them “rapists and animals”?  Yet this happened to Esteban Guzman and his mother while they were working. How can any one person target another person because of their religion?  Yet we have with the banning of Muslims from other countries.  How can any one person reject another person because they are seeking a better life for themselves?  Yet we have with the separation of families and the imprisonment of thousands of immigrant children across the country.

Who are the good and the bad in these circumstances?  Are they really who we perceive them to be?

For all these incidences, the tables could have easily been turned.  It could’ve been a fat white woman working in her yard with her son when a Mexican man approached her and began calling her names.  Just because she was a fat white woman.  We could have the banning of all other religions except Muslim.  And Americans could be the ones fleeing a war-torn country for a better life somewhere else, only to be separated at the border, of any country, and their children are put in cages to live like dogs.

It’s difficult to understand what someone is experiencing when you haven’t gone through it yourself.  Maybe if we think before calling someone out for being different from us, we could stop being so hateful of others for something they have no control over.  We could give of ourselves and start caring for our fellow human beings instead of acting like imbeciles.

Just because there’s a puppet master in Washington it doesn’t mean you have to be his puppet.

Elite

The other night at his most recent pep rally SHITHOLE said to his brainwashed sheep:  “The elite.  Why are they elite?  I have a much better apartment than they do.  I am smarter than they are.  I am richer than they are.  I became president and they didn’t.  And I am representing the greatest, smartest, most loyal people on earth, the deplorables”.

What SHITHOLE doesn’t realize is that It takes a lot more than material possessions and a prestigious “title” that was achieved illegally to make one “elite”.

By definition the word “elite” means “the best”.  SHITHOLE is far from “the best”.  If anything, he is “the worst”—in other words “deplorable”.  Which is what he referred to his followers as.  And that’s exactly what he is as well.

To be “elite” one must not only be “the best” but they must be “the best” at what they do.  Michael Jordan was “elite” at basketball.  Bill Gates is “elite” at technology and business.  There can be more than one who is “elite” at something.  There are many “elite” insurance companies.  Several get A+ ratings.  There are many “elite” musicians, actors, artists, writers, athletes, etc.  It’s difficult to name one as “the best”.  So they often get lumped into the “elite” category.

SHITHOLE isn’t “the best” at anything.  Not business.  Not negotiating.  Not speaking.  Not tweeting.  Not even an illegitimate “presidency”.  He couldn’t even steal it without getting caught.  Shit, from what many have said, he’s not even “good” at sex, not much being “the best”.  He’s not even “the best” at lying because you always know when he’s lying.  A “good” liar is one who can at least try to do it right.  He can’t even do that.  It’s pathetic if you can’t even be “the best” at lying.

So, yeah, SHITHOLE can brag about having this, that and the other thing but having those things makes him far from being “elite”.  They just make him a greedy son-of-a-bitch who is the most miserable person on the planet.  And it shows.  Every. Single. Day.

Six down, six to go

Today marks a milestone in my child’s life.  She has now completed half of her educational years.

Today my baby graduates from the sixth grade and grammar school.  It’s been a long, tedious and at times heart-wrenching journey for not only my daughter, but us, her parents.  Especially this year.  We started out the school year doing virtual school at home.  Although it may be good for some, it was not for us.  Fortunately we chose to go back to the brick and mortar school before we got too far in.  It was the right decision.

My thanks go out to the principal, teachers and staff at EBES.  Without you we would never had made it through these past seven years.  This school is the gem of our regional school district.  Although my daughter will encounter many other schools in the rest of her educational tenure, EBES will always remain as the best.

Thanks for all you go through to help educate our children.
