Hello On-line friends and family, how are all of you doing?  I do hope your week was as nice as mine.  Gosh, I hope many of you on the East Coast are doing fine after Hurricane Sandy and the Nor'easter.  To so many of you throughout the United States, I hope you are doing good after these elections.

The morning of November 7th, I woke up to my husband "Todd’s" words: “was I dreaming, or did Obama win the elections?”  Then he looked at me with a smile after I said: “nope you are not dreaming,” and began singing “Second Time Around.” (The 1979 hit song by R & B Group “Shalamar”)  LOL!  So of course, these past three days this is the song both Todd and  I have been singing, especially the chorus: 

"The second time around;

Ooh, the second time is so much better, baby;

The second Time around;

And I’ll make it better than the first time."

On that wonderful day - November 7th, in the area of the US where I reside it was dreary and cloudy due to the Nor’easter (winter storm) that had moved in over us; [as well as over many other States along the East Coast;] however, I SAW NOTHING BUT BLUE SKIES WITH BRIGHT RAYS OF SUNLIGHT.  

Oh yes…on that wonderful day November 7th, it was full of calmness; but truly one full of love, smiles, a feeling of great relief and pride; as well as silent joys; all because of President Barack Obama’s outstanding victory ~~~ of being elected to another term as President of the United States of America.  This remarkable, intelligent man HAS BEEN elected once again by the people of America to lead them; as well as manage the affairs of their much-loved country (USA) for another 4 years.  Hooray!

Clearly America has changed…don’t you think?  And without a doubt the American people have spoken loud and clear!  They came out and voted in record numbers for the person they believe in, and trust wholeheartedly.  Most importantly, they have voted for the person they believe WILL lead their beloved country to brighter days, and to a bright and prosperous future.  I am very pleased and thankful that President Obama has (1) been afforded the special opportunity to finish all he has started during his first 4 years in office; and  (2) will continue fighting to complete, plus succeed in all he has began working on ~~~ so that he can deliver all he has promised the American people.

I must say though the airwaves and networks that are owned/run by the “Right Wing Wackos” and “nut-jobs,” which are always full of rhetoric coming out of the mouths of the Republican Political Pundits and Strategists; as well as folks who are wayyyy to the right --- HAVE BEEN EERILY QUIET!  Not only on November 7th, but yesterday November 8th, as well as today November 9th.  I suppose all their predictions of President Obama losing the Electoral vote by a 100 or so margin, in addition to losing the Popular Vote WAS PROFOUNDLY INCORRECT...WRONG!  Obviously they must be in a serious state of shock; because over these 4 years and even over these recent months, and final days of campaigning they would never “shut up” with their negative…hateful talk (just stressing and stressing on their silly “talking points” regarding how Obama’s policies have failed, his inabilities to do anything for America, and bla…bla…bla!) 

Hum, I’ve been observing the Republicans as well as the Independents over these past 3 days (after the elections;) and I find them to be acting awfully strange!  I’m wondering though is it just Todd and I, or does it seem that their inevitable barrage of nasty…hateful talk and comments merely turned to whispers, and in many cases their voices HAVE BEEN SILENCED [due to the election results?]  I get the distinct impression that they are heart broken and grieving.  Further, due to their comments on the airwaves; it is apparent they are outwardly blaming each other for their loss; and to me [personally] it seems as though they may be imploding.  Which of course have been big WOW moments for both myself and Todd!  Awe…well, perhaps they will figure out their problems and work out the solutions/answers regarding their party.  Clearly millions…upon millions in America have!

So now that this important election is over; I’ve got to recap, plus “rub in” the exciting results for a minute to my Republican and Independent friends [hehehe].  Our 44th President Barack H. Obama IS elected to a 2nd TERM, and the results of his overwhelming and victorious win are: (1) Electoral Votes received: 303 to Gov. Romney’s 206; and the % of the Popular vote is: 50.5% to Romney’s 47.9%.  I don’t believe all the results from the State of Florida are in, as well as the results of the e-mail and fax votes from the Hurricane ravaged State of New Jersey, plus the results from the Absentee Ballots; so it may even be MUCH HIGHER NUMBERS for the President. 

On a personal note, I am so pleased with the voter turnout.  It was truly awesome!  As I focused on the results by each county in several different states; it is clear that  many were passionate about voting, and these past 4 years have made a world of difference to those who never felt it was important.  Indeed, President Barack Obama has given many something to FIGHT for---VOTE for---and something to be PROUD off.  Now many are comfortable knowing that they are seen, their voices are heard; and most importantly their vote count!  Moreover, many in America are pleased to see (1) that the powers that be have finally realized there is a very large group of people here that count, as well as their votes; and (2) that a large amount are smart enough and organized enough to go out and exercise their rights (especially to vote!)  Undoubtedly, this has made a world of difference in the 2012 elections.

As I bring my thoughts to a close about this exciting time in history, I must say I strongly feel deep in my heart these upcoming 4 years will be phenomenal for America and the American people.  President Obama will work harder than he has done over the past 4 years to make these United States of America perfect.  HE MUST, AND SIMPLY HAS TO!!!  We too must commit to help him, by staying engaged in the Political System.  I close my writings of President Obama, and his wonderful win with an excerpt of his victory speech---See below:

…And tonight, despite all the hardship we've been through, despite all the frustrations of Washington, I've never been more hopeful about our future.  

I have never been more hopeful about America.  And I ask you to sustain that hope.  I'm not talking about blind optimism, the kind of hope that just ignores the enormity of the tasks ahead or the roadblocks that stand in our path.  I'm not talking about the wishful idealism that allows us to just sit on the sidelines or shirk from a fight.  I have always believed that hope is that stubborn thing inside us that insists, despite all the evidence to the contrary, that something better awaits us so long as we have the courage to keep reaching, to keep working, to keep fighting.

America, I believe we can build on the progress we've made and continue to fight for new jobs and new opportunity and new security for the middle class.  I believe we can keep the promise of our founders, the idea that if you're willing to work hard, it doesn't matter who you are or where you come from or what you look like or where you love.  It doesn't matter whether you're Black or White or Hispanic or Asian or Native American or young or old or rich or poor, able, disabled, gay or straight.  You can make it here in America if you're willing to try.  

I believe we can seize this future together because we are not as divided as our politics suggests.  We're not as cynical as the pundits believe.  We are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions, and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states.  We are, and forever will be the United States of America.

And together with your help and God's grace we will continue our journey forward and remind the world just why it is that we live in the greatest nation on Earth..."

CONGRATULATIONS PRESIDENT BARACK H. OBAMA ON A WONDERFUL WIN.  CONGRATULATIONS TO YOUR BEAUTIFUL FAMILY, AS WELL AS TO YOUR HARD WORKING TEAM!  WE AT ARIOUS WISH YOU ALL THE BEST IN YOUR 2nd TERM [4 YEARS] AS PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.  IT’S INDEED A LOVELY DAY IN THE U.S.A.

 

Today - Friday, November 9th, makes it 11 days after Hurricane Sandy made landfall; and along her pathway she has wreaked major havoc and destruction to many States on the Eastern Seaboard; as well as caused heartache and sorrow to the lives of many who reside in these States.  Yet again, just a few days ago many in these same States have been hit hard by a “Nor'easter” that traveled directly over the Eastern Seaboard causing the same type of havoc; plus dropping quite a bit of snow (several feet), rain; and high winds. 

We at Arious Entertainment Group would like to express our deepest sympathies to the many suffering from Sandy’s wrath, and the “Nor'easter”; as well as to those who are affected in some way or another by the devastation both vicious storms have cause.  We deeply feel your pain and share your worries and concerns; as you struggle to clean up, rebuild, and put the pieces back together in your life.   To those who have lost loved ones, we know how much your heart is aching, and the sorrow you feel is unbearable.  But please know that you are not alone in this time if grief.  We pray that strength is bestowed upon you, so that you can make it through this extremely difficult time.

In my previous e-Newsletter I stated I DID NOT have a good feeling about Hurricane Sandy; and simply stated I had this bad feeling due to “Todd” and I experiencing her wrath on the waters of the Caribbean during our recent vacation (as we were cruising back to the states.)  And exactly what I felt; is what occurred, plus much…much more.

As you are aware Super Storm Hurricane sandy being 1000 miles wide; with 90 mph winds and torrential rains; completely destroyed cities with: (1) massive floods of water; (2) incredible steady high winds that uprooted and toppled trees to the ground, and on to homes as well as power lines; plus (3) caused incredible fires due to ruptured gas lines resulting in 100s of homes and/or businesses bursting into flames, and smoldering to the ground.  Even heavy snowfall, which inundated the higher elevations of states - such as: Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and some parts of Ohio.

Scores of people are STILL homeless today; and those whose homes made it through the storm have been without power and water; and many today are still without power and water.   The death toll is climbing daily (currently approximately 110 people have lost their lives in the United States and approximately 78 in the Caribbean).  And the total economic damage from this Super Storm is estimated to reach over 55 billion (in loses to the region.)  As you are aware, New Jersey and New York was hit very hard; but of the two: New Jersey was hit the hardest.  Millions are still without power; there is gas rationing taking place; people are still being rescued; and many are still in shelters.  Voting was even extended in NJ until today Friday.

 

Oh dear… Super Storm Sandy has left me in awe of nature’s power!  And the tumult is unbelievable; plus its aftermath is truly saddening!  Gosh, this Super Storm is the second costliest storm in U.S. history after Hurricane Katrina.  

Well, you must have seen the devastating images of the destruction on every TV Station, cable channel, and on the Internet and social networks; as well as heard about many heartbreaking issues on every radio station.  Therefore, I will not add any more photos. 

Plus now that the elections are over, we must truly focus on helping those in the Emergency Disaster areas recover from Hurricane Sandy, and this week’s severe “Nor'easter”.  So below I have added some important information for those who are a part of our on-line family and who may need help…want help.    Go ahead and read the below information which is a detailed list of “Resources for Disaster Assistance.”
