WTF America?

FeaturedYa'll Trumping it?

OMG! How did we get here? Trump or Hillary? It was so obvious that Bernie Sanders won this election. The only logical choice to follow Obama. He only scratched the surface of what Bernie would only dig deeper into. Social correctness not political incorrectness. Embracing diversity of mankind and not using it for wars and social discontent.

Obama, what can I say? America’s first black President to visit a prison and care about the incarcerated, to approach Native American concerns, attempt a first approach to try to get insurance out of health care. Fight climate change and stop a war with Iran. Go to Mars instead of wars with Russia who just gave US and them send astronauts to the ISS a space station we keep with our friends in Russia.

They’ve Sold Your News Source

Everything is for sale. Your personal data, your government, your wedding and your funeral. It’s every man for himself and there’s a reason.  Wars have been for sale since before you were born and they charged you for them. It was your dime that did everything you never wanted done.

This is not sustainable as a species.

Hillary wants open borders, Trump wants closed borders. Trump wants to keep manufacturing home creating minimal wage jobs.  Hillary helping Walmart and other major Corps out source everything. Gambling on America’s ability for future tech, she is betting that we are smart enough to create the next tech to keep our economy going and hopefully growing. Reaching new frontiers.

Trumps’s world would refuel America with jobs in manufacturing and labor. Leaving the under class and uneducated in America defenseless and vulnerable to their needs of survival. Close the borders and close out the world has been repeated in history. It set china back 600 years. America’s biggest accomplishments came from foreign students via the H1B visa.

We steal smart people from other countries. We began doing this at the end of WWII.  Wernher von Braun and about 1400 others are the first time we saw America blatantly forgive war crimes for knowledge.  The H1B visa was only created to lure to smartest people on the planet to our universities and hopefully stay in America.

Everyone knows a NWO is coming. Does it take care of OUR basic needs first, or a bureaucracy of people living off our tax dollars. We are a ecosystem like it or not. This world, this current political system corrects us biologically or it corrupts us. What would you rather live in, a stagnant pond or a growing ocean of life. It’s up to us and what we want. That’s why I’m writing in #BernieSanders

Meet The Candy Maker

Missus Boom

Kara Paige Jones

Missus BoomOnce upon a time, there lived a girl in the woods that was a candy maker. She lived near a lake, calm and serene. But the girl had a dream, a dream of pastel dragon’s and a far away place, she called forever. That girl would one day grow up to become a lady. And that lady would soon recognize what the world was made of. Pastel dragon’s and far away dreams. She let her heart shine like a rainbow.  Then filled the world, with all it’s needs.

You think you need something, then realize you don’t. You think you forgot something, then realize it was something that you didn’t want. Life is a precious gift, and the sooner you realize that, the sooner you start to put all things into perspective. This is Kara Paige Jones, this is my daughter, and all her dreams.

Meet The Candy Maker for Dragons

Missus Boom’s Candies

This is My daughter, Kara Paige Jones. She is number 12 on my Bucket List. I have promised to take her to see Stonehenge and meet her cousin Carol. I also promised her she was next on my blog roll, and here she is. Kara was born in the middle of Texas but raised on a lake in Arkansas next to a National Forrest.  She lived with the deer and fox, beavers and squirrels. Dogs and cats, a bat or injured rooster. Animals followed her home all the time, needing medical attention or just a friend for awhile. She did this with people too.

She liked to make things growing up, art, beads, jewelry and fashion. She likes reading, detest bigotry and racism. She has a quest for knowledge and understanding the universe.  But mostly, she likes to find the beauty in the world and see people laugh.  Kara has made me proud to be a father, plus, it’s really hard to frown with a mouth full of Candy.  Now meet Kara  The Candy Maker.

Did you always know you would be a Candy Maker?

*A* Missus Boom
Not really, I hadn’t planned on it anyway.

Are you naturally blonde or brunette?

*A* Missus Boom
I’m not even sure any more.

*Q *What Do Your Shorts Say?
What’s your favorite candy and why?

That’d definitely have to be Ferrero Rocher chocolates.

*Q *What Do Your Shorts Say?
How do you like being interviewed?

Hoop Dance

Hoop Dancing To Goldfish

Hoop Dance

Katie Sunshine

When Katie Sunshine created her youtube account, she used it for listening to music. She listened to Goldfish, Shakira and Electric Guest, The Yeah Yeah Yeah’s. Popular and underground, she liked it all. Music I know you listen to, too. Miss Sunshine is now 26 and soon to become a elementary school art teacher… that likes to hula hoop. Thats right, I said hula hoop. And you havn’t seen anything like Katies hoops.
“Although the exact origins of hula hoops are unknown, children and adults around the world have played with hoops, twirling, rolling and throwing them throughout history.” [1] But, they have been found as early as the 5th century in Greece where it was both a form of excersize and play. In 13th century Scotland, they were also used as a form of excersize for patients with bad backs and bad hearts. And even up into the 1950’s s and 60’s where they were the center of attention at every party on the beach. The market was flooded with Hula Hoops, Bikini’s, and Annette Funichello. This is what Katie mirrors today. She has taken something so antique out of the closet and turned into a modern form of art and dance.
If you don’t believe me go watch Katie Sunshine for yourself. Then come back and tell me I’m wrong.


A graduate of The University of Arkansas, Katie became a Hula Hoop Exercise sensation. She posted her first video a little over three years ago hoop dancing to “Goldfish,” and then nothing. Goldfish is a big hit in South Africa and Denmark.
The usual flow of YouTube traffic, about two hundred views or so, nothing spectacular until a blogger, local to Denmark, was researching for an article covering a  show “Goldfish” was planning on preforming in Denmark and managed to stumble onto Katies video featuring music from the band. Linking her video to the blog, Katie Sunshine has of June 21st, 2012,  1,624,779 video views on YouTube. (Thats 1 million 6 hundred-thousand Views! and counting)

Stripper poles, over the last few years have became the trend for modern exercise in Hollywood. And it’s a fire that’s slowly spreading across the country. I alone have at least one friend who’s wife has a stripper pole in their living room.  To be perfectly fit you have to exercise like a stripper. Being on the pole is not only sexy, but empowers women in a way they might not have known they can be. Sure, you’re sexy, but it also tones your core, your arms and thighs, lifts your butt and can even get rid of the dreaded cankle. It’s a good workout. But, not every woman in America wants a stripper pole in their living room.  However, Hula Hoops can give you that same work out and take up far less space!  If you think you can keep up with Katie, go out and buy a hula hoop at the dollar store, they are cheap, or better yet do what Katie does and make it yourself!

Katie was kind enough to answer a few questions for me in a little interview.  I would like to welcome Katie Sunshine to What Do Your Shorts Say? The Magazine

Q. What Do Your Shorts Say?
Were You born in North West Arkansas?

A. Katie
No, I was born in Benton (Central Arkansas) but grew up in Northwest Arkansas. Northwest Arkansas still feels like home even though I live in central Arkansas…once again._

Q. What Do Your Shorts Say?
When did you get your first hula hoop?

A.Katie

I assume you mean my first hoop as an adult? Of course, I had a hula hoop as a kid, just like any kid does, but had long since forgotten how to hula hoop. I got my first hoop to dance/exercise with about 4 years ago, started practicing, and that’s where I am today!

Q. What Do Your Shorts Say?
What inspired you to dance?

A. Katie
I was first inspired to dance by another hula hoop girl I saw dancing at Yonder Mountain Music Fest in Ozark, AR. I was so mesmerized by her that I wasn’t even watching the concert! After seeing her, I was determined that I would one day be a hoop dancer like her and that’s what really got the ball rolling.

Q. What Do Your Shorts Say?
Did you always know you’d be a teacher?

A. Katie
No, I’ve always known that I would do something with art though. Teaching art is really enjoyable, I get to share my passion with young students and get to see their artwork too. I love it.

Q What Do Your Shorts Say?
What was your motivation to promote fittness?

A Katie
Personal fitness is something that’s always been very important in my life. I have always enjoyed exercising and I especially enjoy the feeling once a really strenuous workout is over! It gives me a feeling of accomplishment as well as a certain amount of satisfaction that I’ve done something good for my body. Exercise also leaves me feeling more energized and gives me an outlet for stress or anything else weighing me down at the moment. And of course when you can fun exercising, like when you’re hula hooping, it makes it even better!

Q What Do Your Shorts Say?
What do want to tell the world that they don’t know?

A Katie
I’m also a lover of the visual arts, not just the performing arts. I love to paint and take photographs and would welcome anyone to take a look at my paintings in addition to my hula hoop videos.

Q What Do Your Shorts Say?
I love your fuzzy leggings! Where did you get them?

A Katie
I got my fuzzy leggings as part of a Halloween costume. I love to wear costumes so wearing them gives me a feeling of being dressed up to have a good time, just like at Halloween.

Katie Sunshine

Katie Sunshines one million plus views got the attention of the local media. They produced a interview and her popularity continued to grow. She now performs at events and paints. She has preformed on the Phillies dugout with Phanatic and appeared on the Preston and & Steve show in Atlantic City.

YouTube surpassed 1 trillion views in 2011, compared to the Estimates for the 2008 Summer Olympics opening ceremony, global TV viewership varied between one and four billion, including an estimated 842 million viewers watching on the host Chinese broadcaster, as reported by FIFE and the NFL and others, which have been questioned by independent groups and audience figures cited in billions are considered practically unverifiable according to Wikipedia. And even if 4 billion is correct, that doesn’t even come close to 1 trillion. We have taken what was television and print ad into our own hands.

Finally, the power of broadcast media belongs to us. And when thats possible, then the stars of everything else, just like NFL athletes, can come out and shine.
