About Me

Go placidly amidst the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

A question re:9/11 (not a truther honest question)

OK over the last few years I've read /watched everything that has to do with 9/11, I still end up with one nagging question which is the original P.N.A.C. document by the heritage foundation ie: Bush boys et.al. regarding the coincidence of this document being written several years earlier than 9/11 among other coincidentally questionable phrases is,The main way to obtain the consent of the people it would take a Dec.7th type of attack then low and behold 9/11, I am not a truther but I would love to find a answer to this one nagging question I keep asking myself , Can this really be a coincidence?

My 2c on the Hillary question

I have been reading the Hillary bashing and the pro Hillary discussion and I must ask when all is said and done aren't you going to vote the democratic ticket? Sure I'd like to vote for Bernie and/or Elizabeth W we'll see how it shakes out but no matter what I,m not voting for any Right winger's so I'll vote the best way I can to stop the republican crooks at all levels. So stop the argument already and G.O.T.V. That's all I have to say about that.

Where is the outrage ?

I cant believe that this pervert and his wife will just get away with this,It is beyond all reason that this will just be swept under the news cycle, to top it off these pukes are defending them and even on D.U. i've only seen 1 O.P. Shameful.

Thought of the day!

You can be as religious as you like, If you have no moral compass it matters not.

I Rand Pauled some of this Post-

I was reading the post "Jesus must be so embarrassed" and It came to mind that this should be an argument out in public showing the total disregard that R/W er's and supposedly Christan fundies actually have for the teachings of Jesus,
"Jesus was always preaching compassion and acceptance for the most marginalized in his time, those pushed to the edges of society by the condemnation of secular and religious authorities. He saved his sharpest criticism for those who claimed to be religious, but seemed the most reluctant to reach out in love to society's outcast. From the religiously observant priest and Levite who passed by the man mugged and left for dead (and ultimately saved by The Good Samaritan), to the religious leaders who criticized him for dining with notorious sinners, Jesus rebuked those who claimed to do the loving will of God, but had little evidence to show for it."

My point being that if every time one of these pricks start to use "The Lord's" will arguments to screw over people and/or promote their own agenda, The above paragraph should be thrown in their face time and time again until the general public finally figures out that they are Lying Hippocrates.

Namaste , A little token-

Seems as if it might help if I add a little token of inspiration, I find this while basic and simple, Profound and a beautifully put together : , Enjoy
