Not Required: Federal Government’s Opinion, Approval, nor Permission

“As a Union of States … we simply don’t need the Federal government’s opinion, we don’t need their approval and we don’t need their permission to protect our people.”
~ KrisAnne Hall
President – Liberty First University, Biochemist, Russian Linguist (US Army), Constitutional Lawyer (First Amendment Law), Host – The KrisAnne Hall Show & Patriot
“The Tenth Amendment reinforces the principles of separation of powers and federalism by providing that powers not granted to the federal government by the Constitution, nor prohibited to the states, are reserved to the states or the people. The amendment provides no new powers or rights to the states, but rather preserves their authority in all matters not specifically granted to the federal government.”

Assumptions We Make

“We make assumptions about people based on their size. We decide who they are. We decide what they’re worth.

Is my value based only on your perception? Or is your opinion of me not my responsibility?”

Who Determines Your Self-Worth?

Impossible Is …

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who
find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given
than to explore the power they have to change it.
Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare.
Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”
~ Muhammad Ali
a.k.a Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr.,
Boxer & Heavyweight Champion of the World (1964-1979, 3X)

Some of the Most Beautiful Parts of Life

While single, I couldn’t believe “how much people would judge a woman’s worth
or judge how successful she is based on whether or not she’s married.
And I’m not slamming marriage — marriage and family are some of the most beautiful parts of my life.
But everybody meets their own person in their own time,
and I don’t think a woman should be looked at like,
‘Oh, you’re still not married?’ Why do people still think that way?!”
~ Holly Madison
Model, Showgirl, Television Personality & Author
