About Me

Live Your Life - So live your life so the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their views, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and of service to your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide. Always give a word or sign of salute when meeting or passing a stranger if in a lonely place. Show respect to all people, but grovel to none. When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life and strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies in yourself. Touch not the poisonous firewater that makes wise ones turn to fools and robs them of their visions. When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home. -Tecumseh

The Billion Dollar a Month Club: A Runaway Transfer of Wealth to the Super-Rich

Our national wealth has grown by an astonishing $30 trillion since the recession, but most of it has gone to people who were already wealthy.
We are living through a massive redistribution of America's net worth to the beneficiaries of a financial industry that has used cunning and money and power to impose their version of economic "freedom" while deregulating any policies that might have stopped the incessant transfer of wealth.
It's getting worse, by the year and by the month. President Obama's claim that "We've recovered faster and come farther than almost any other advanced country on Earth" applies largely to the people whose wealth accumulation has dramatically pulled up the averages. The evidence is staring us in the face, but the super-rich are only watching their portfolios.

<snip>

The rest of us own a smaller and smaller share of a nation that we, and our ancestors before us, all helped to build. Unprincipled members of business and government have taken away the financial regulations and progressive taxes that once protected the majority of Americans. It has been argued that a Financial Speculation Tax might be the best approach to stop the wealth transfer carnage. We have to do something. The splitting of our society is nearly beyond repair.

Military healthcare (TriCare) is supported by Tax Dollars. If we are not healthy enough to

work and make enough money to support our Military then the House Of Cards will cave in on itself.

We all need to support each other.

We all need the same HealthCare.

How hard is this to understand?

Our candidates did not have the courage of their convinctions. And they suck at

campaigning. Honestly, we should consider hiring Campaign Managers away from Repubs.

What Shakespeare Character Are You?

You are Luciana
“That love I begg'd for you he begg'd of me.”

You are a textbook idealist. When you fall in love, it is head over heels...and usually, it's love at first sight! No matter, since you are all heedless optimism and idealism. As a result, you can be a bit sensitive and your heart (and ego!) has been bruised more than once. Your friends value you for your good nature and positive outlook on life. You can be sneaky and crafty when you go after what you want, and it doesn't always turn out how you expect - but it does always ends up for the best!

Courage of Their Convictions.

would be the phrase.

When one has it, they sound strong, brave, fearless.

Granted The TeaParty Repubs sound Crazy with what they have chosen to be convinced in but, the courage of it comes through and that is what is attractive to people.

Fess up DUers, who here has hit a deer with their vehicle?

You swerved, but still hit the deer. Now you may face a raise in your car insurance rates for something you feel you could not avoid. Even if you have never had this experience several insurance companies are raising rates in states with high or rapidly increasing rates of deer strikes.

Currently West Virginia has the highest rate of deer strikes, where your odds of hitting a deer are one in 39, followed by Michigan, where insurance rate increases are directly correlated with an increase in deer strikes. So, unless you plan to move to Hawaii, where your chances of hitting a deer are only one in 10,000, you may want to take some precautions.

Accidents with deer occur most frequently between October and December which is mating season. Collisions with deer are increasing due to deforestation and building in rural areas forcing deer out of their natural habitats and into more highly populated areas.

The collision rates have increased the most in New Jersey and Nebraska where statistics show a 54% increase in the number of car versus deer accidents in the past two years.
