I will let this speak for itself-

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.

Poverty Republican style-


This crap needs to stop, They have set up a circle of poverty no matter how hard poor people work they can never break the cycle, Stop the war on the poor, Start the war on poverty.

The best argument-

For Bernie Sanders is not found at the rallies nor the websites, The best argument for Bernie is found in the latest book by Naomi Klein " This Changes Everything" Please take the time to read this book it will change your whole outlook on many issues and leave you with a new realization of how imparitive it is that this system change, I'm not trying to get you to buy a book I am trying to share with everyone so you too will understand how and why this country needs to change at its very core. Bouncing for Bernie

A Little story for your appraisal-

I had to go for a blood test at the local clinic the other day I went at the early AM to avoid the wait, So while waiting for the doors too open I got to talking with a couple whom were also waiting, I asked if they knew of Bernie they had not but then went into a tirade about Obama, I swear to god it sounded like Fox news was on, I let it go gave my blood and got out ASAP, I did not want to argue that early If I had said what i thought it would have been , So you hate Obama but you are at a clinic that would probably not exist if not for ACA , And judging from apperance you probably would not have Ins. People are amazingly moronic, I swear i could just see these two watching fox with a six pack of millwaukee's Best (yuk) just swallowing every word from Bill'O, So there it is in all it's idiocy.

About ruffburr

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.
