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.

Warning This Is a Rant-

WTF, All I see is how Hillary won the debate and how she's polling way above every one else etc etc etc. Are the citizens of this country so malleable that they will vote for the status quo candidates even when it is so Obvious that the status quo is a failure of Epic proportions, Climate destroyed, Inequality on both social and financial levels running rampant, America status in the world destroyed by wars of aggression for profit, Etc etc, And the Morons Are so scared of Change that they cling to the same old failed policies and politicians, Just gutless, Stand the F--k up like your forefathers and mothers for a better life for Your Self and for your Children, Dump the status quo.

The beginning of the End-

Of the neo-con game that has plagued the world for 35 years, http://utopiathecollapse.com/2015/08/26/german-media-european-refugee-crisis-is-the-result-of-u-s-economic-wars/ The scams and profiteering has the lights of truth beginning to see the true extent of the damage done by the greed and Imperial ambitions of a handful of ( enter your own epithet ) The people are awakening daily.

I just want to say -

The Republicans are expected to trash Bernie , The Democrats are not expected to trash Bernie , But it seems that all the 3rd wayers and many of the supposed good Dems are so scared of Bernie cutting off their payola gravy train that they are desperately trying to stop the juggernaut that is Bernie Sanders, They are trying to get old Joe to run with Elizabeth Warren thinking that will change the people's vote, Ask yourself why are they so scared of Bernie getting into power? The answer I come up with that Bernie will uncover the whole rotten system of business as usual in Washington and expose them all for the traitorous profiteering shills they are, I really hope that Elizabeth will not let them use her in an attempt to undermine Bernie's campaign, I believe she's better than that.
