I AM THE 53%

My Dad worked nights so I could go to private school and get the best education possible.
I started working on the day it became legal for someone to hire me- my 16th birthday.
I’ve plunged toilets, cleaned up puke, and interned for free- because I believe hard work is how you achieve the American Dream, NOT government handouts.
I want a family but I realize that I cannot afford one right now, so I work hard so that one day I can.
I took out students loans, and will probably take out more- because I believe education is an important self-investment.
I have some credit card debt, but I don’t blame Wall Street or greedy corporations-I blame myself for buying too many shoes!
I don’t like the direction our country is going but instead of sitting around with a sign, I ran for office, I volunteer for candidates I believe in, and I WORK to affect change.
I AM THE 53%

Open Message to “Occupy Wall Street”

Dear Occupy Wall Street:

GROW UP!

Hi, my name is Deanna. I work hard and go to school. I’m paying a lot of money for school because I want to better myself. I work hard at my job because I believe the American Dream is earned, not given by the government. I take out student loans, and I understand why they need to be paid back. I went two years without health care and didn’t complain. I live within my means and do not blame any one else for any debt that I accrue. I am in the Tea Party. I do not get paid for that, I do not quit my job to participate. I do not call for violence or violate the law in my protest. I do not violate property rights. I know what I believe in:

God

The Sanctity Of Life

A Small Government

Low Taxes

Hard Work

I don’t expect anyone to give me things for free. I don’t think the government is my sugar daddy. I might fall in the category of “poor” but I do not blame wall street, and I know that increasing taxes on the people who create jobs in this country will NOT CREATE JOBS!

So I have some advice for you:

Go Home

Take a Shower

Go to class

Get a Job

Get off your butt

Work Hard

GROW UP AND STOP BLAMING EVERYONE ELSE FOR YOUR PROBLEMS!!!!!!

Her name is Joanne Schiebel. In 1954, she was a young unmarried college student who discovered that she was pregnant. In the 1950s, her options were limited. She could have had an abortion – but the procedure was both dangerous and illegal. She could have gotten married, but she wasn’t ready and didn’t want to interrupt her education. Joanne opted, instead, to give birth to the baby and put it up …for adoption.And so it was that in 1955, a California couple named Paul and Clara adopted a baby boy, born out-of-wedlock, that they named Steven.This adopted baby grew into a man who changed the world. We celebrate his life and his accomplishments and wish him the best in the afterlife. The baby’s name is Steve Jobs.

If you are thankful for the life of Steve Jobs; if you are thankful for the contributions he has made to the world and your life then today…thank his mother Joanne Schiebel for choosing life.

Imagine for a moment how many Steve Jobs have been aborted. Perhaps the baby that God gave us to cure Cancer? Perhaps the baby that would have grown up and invented an alternate fuel method that would decrease or completely nullify our dependency on gas?

I saw this on Facebook and I was shocked, I had no idea that Steve Jobs was adopted. As the world mourns the life of this visionary, we must remember that he was only able to do what he did because HIS MOTHER CHOSE LIFE.
Everyday there are 4,000 innocent children lost in the name of “choice”. That’s 4,000 potential Steve Jobs, Mother Theresas, Presidents, Writers, Doctors, Teachers, Pastors, Missionaries, Scientists, and Visionaries.
As someone who was adopted, I can speak to the idea of potential with authority. I’m not done with my life yet, and I believe that I can continue to affect change. I will continue to fight against abortion until all of my innocent brothers and sisters have the chance to do the same.
