Born and raised catholic, I will forever thank my young CCD teacher in 3rd grade who told us we didn't need to take the Bible literally. The fact I still remember it more than 50 years later shows how impactful it was. I continued going to church through high school but I was done once I went to college. I got a degree in Plastics engineering and realized soon after how much I hated most of the plastics industry. Made my way eventually into teaching where I currently work. I was married for over 20 years but I'm now on my own with 2 grown children. I'm still interested in learning and experiencing new adventures (went ziplining and skydiving for my 60th birthday). Love reading, movies, and playing games.

NHjulie comments on Jul 17, 2019:
Do you remember when Obama was running for reelection, Republicans were all over the idea that it was the beginning of Nazi Germany again. There was even a woman who was a survivor explaining the similarities like socialized medicine, gun control and preschool education. Hmmm. Such horrible things those damned democrats were trying to do.https://www.mediamatters.org/blog/2014/03/21/conservatives-cant-stop-making-nazi-references/198558 On the other hand, the idiot in chief's administration (including all the milktoast republicans who refuse to speak up) fights against all of our basic rights: freedom of speech, freedom of the press, equality for all. He has created a "state news" in Fox where people are only seeing a very filtered news cycle. He is pitting races against each other, demeaning people of color and making them the "reason" for everything that is bad in their lives. It's literally text book behavior. I even read that Ivana said in divorce proceedings that tRump had a book of Hitler's speeches on his bedside table (I know hard to believe he would actually be able to read a book but it was probably there for years so he could read it a paragraph at a time). The similarities are just getting way too frequent and more and more extreme.

I don't understand how he can get away with all this crap. Whenever there has been a democratic president, I have spoken out when I didn't agree with what they are doing. The most I have heard any republican that I know say is they just wish he would stop tweeting or he says some stupid stuff. Nothing about policies, profiting off the prsidency, ruining international relationships, destroying the reputation of America that it took Obama some many years to try and improve. I can't stand it.

NHjulie comments on Jun 18, 2019:
Remember way back in 2009 when Obama wanted ARRA to be twice as big but the Republicans wouldn't agree to it because it would cause too much debt? Unfortunately he compromised. Those extra infrastructure projects would have fixed many of the current problems, helped the economy even more (which is why they really didn't want it) and I doubt the debt would be as big as it is now.

Pretty sure I've seen him talk about that before, because I can remember people calling him out on the fact that he didn't know he was limited to two terms. Pretty sure if he somehow does two terms, the economy will have tanked by then , crumbling under the horrific debt we are rolling up, plus many of his other policies will come to fruition and people will realize just how bad they were.

NHjulie comments on Jun 2, 2019:
Sorry, I don't agree that all people who work for the government are "on the gravy train". Often people who went into public sector jobs, did so at much lower rates than those who went into private. Because they often formed unions to make sure they at least had reasonable benefits, they are now still in those unions whereas the public sector is eliminating those benefits. Have some taken advantage? Sure, but IMO not the majority.
