SueInCa

I am a soon to be 59 Nana to Anthony who is 11. I live in Benicia CA with my husband and Shih Tsu. I worked in Banking and the Financial Industry for 24 years in Fraud, Risk Management, Account Management, Program Management, Project Management and Customer Service. I was a Fraud Investigator for Credit Card and Merchant Business and investigated internal fraud and responded to Bank robberies. I was also management in most of these positions. Now I am content to find a part time job where I am just a worker bee, no more corporate BS for this gal. I also make jewelry. I can spend hours in a bead shop just touching all the fine baubles. Only another beader would understand that one.

The Hermanas Mirabal(as they are referred to) were four Dominican political dissidents who opposed the dictatorship of Rafael Trujillo. They called themselves Las Mariposas (the butterflies) because that was the name Minerva Mirabal gave to herself in her underground activities.

VAWA – There Should Never Have Been a Debate On It’s Merits

The thing is why, as a member nation of the United Nations, would anyone in this country think it ok to withhold certain human rights from certain people? And why would Republicans in Congress hold up re-authorization of a bill for almost two years for the reasons stated above?

America and Democracy Are Not For Sale Boys

Would the nation stand up and say no to the oligarchs who are trying to buy this country for themselves? Well I see I should have had faith all along.

When Will The Poor Get Their Chance?

Sometime when you have a few hours to spend, peruse the want ads, you will find entry level jobs for college graduates with at least a Bachelor of Arts starting not much higher than $30k a year, and for High School graduates, they are lucky if it is around $10 to $20k, and that is if you can find help wanted listings at all.

Figuring Out The Far Right Republicans

It is confusing to many as to how this party has so alienated itself and chosen to disregard the truths that many of us hold and have for probably our entire lifetimes. I don’t want to say their movement to the far right is because of President Obama but I do believe his election to the highest office in our land has contributed to their movement.

When The LIBOR is Manipulated You Should Care

The current LIBOR interest rate scandal, involving hundreds of trillions in international derivatives trade, shows how the really big boys play. These modern international bankers are in a class of thieves unlike even the best that came before them. The scandal over LIBOR which is short for London Interbank Offered Rate has resulted in a huge fine for Barclays but it also threatens to ensnare some of the world’s top financiers, including banks in our country.

Bill Moyers – McCarthyism in the 21st Century

I was not old enough to watch, much less understand the impact of the McCarthy hearings in the 50’s but I know to this day something was seriously wrong...

So You Want To Buy A House?

All you really want is a home you can live in comfortably, have the family over, let the grandkids run through...well there are people out there who don't want you to have it.

When the Chips Were Down, Mitt Romney Cut and Ran – To France

“He told us that he had gotten the uniform from his father,” George Romney, then the Governor of Michigan, whose security detail was staffed by uniformed troopers. “He told us that he was using it to pull over drivers on the road. He also had a red flashing light that he would attach to the top of his white Rambler.”……..

Religious Right and The Council on National Policy(CNP)

Over the past three decades since the early 1970’s, there has been the deliberate manipulation of significant segments of the population, most of them undoubtedly sincere believing people, around the ideology of ‘born-again’ evangelical Christian Fundamentalism to create what we now refer to as the Christian Right or Dominionists. Within the broad spectrum of fundamentalist denominations there are some currents which are particularly alarming. Sarah Palin comes out of such a milieu.
