My apologies to black america-

I just want to take a moment to say how sorry I am and offer my condolences to all who have died in Carolina, I find myself embarrassed and ashamed to be a white person in today's America, The ignorance of some of my kind has amazed even me , Guess what All people are just people how much pigment one has is irrelevant, lifestyle is ones own choice, Killing for some imagined long past time in history is just insanity! Once again my deepest condolences.

I wonder if-

This delay in The TTP process will add a wrinkle to the Bildenburg meeting in the Alps ? ( I hope so) just a thought.

I just canceled out of a jury and I thought I'd let you know why, I had made a decision hit the proper button which looked like it registered my vote but gave me message that I hadn't completed jury duty etc I tried to repeat the process a couple times

Hello my fellow Bernie brothers / sisters

I'm glad to be here and am pulling for us all to get Bernie in the white house, I have an idea for making a u tube film that would expose the right wing for their goals while ending it with one of Bernie's great speeches, but alas I lack the technical skill to do so If anyone is interested in helping me see this happen please let me know the title would be " Right wing paradise" " a pictionary" we could give any proceeds to Bernie's campaign if the thought peeks your interest please contact me through D. U.

PS. I really believe that this could make a difference if done right, As corny or crazy as it sounds the idea came to me in a dream , so either the cheese has slid off my cracker or it is meant to happen, For now I'm going with meant to happen.

I found it finally lol

Hi folks, glad I found you, I am using medical cannabis for cancer and depression, I've decided that I will not do chemo after watching my mother and many friends over the years suffer through that particular form of hell, so I'm doing CBD regimen for what ails me we will see how that works out but I would rather have quality of life rather than quantity I'm doing a 1% THC with my cbd plus I've been and still smoke the weed, any way glad to be here to learn from others

Hillary /Bernie and all this sniping

I just can't hold this back, Enough , Let's talk about what's at stake in this election, As I see it in a nutshell it is we who are the people who desire to see the true promise of America rekindled , To do so we must end the corporate end run around all laws of the U.S. , We must end politicians for nothing but profit running this country, If we are to succeed we must all pull together no matter which candidate you support, Case in point myself I will support Bernie as he is the candidate I see as the best to accomplish the afore mentioned goals , But if push comes to shove I will vote for Hillary even though I have a hard time seeing her standing up against the corporate influence in politics, The one thing that we all should be doing is making sure that all GOP wing nuts are absolutely not elected to anything, Not even dog catcher, That as I see it should be our priority, So that's my rant , With so much at stake we must pull together !

Help me stop fracking in CA. (petition)

I would at least like to put it up front to Jerry that he's blowing millions of gal. of water per day for no real reason.

I just started a petition on Care2: Demand Jerry Brown stop fracking in California now!. I'm hoping that if enough people sign my petition, we can make a difference. Right now I've got 11 signatures — will you help me collect more by adding your name, and then use the links below to share it on social media?

Here's a link to the petition: http://www.care2.com/go/z/e/ALfaO/zoyY/bDMM_

End of Dollar dominance?

So I thought this might be foretelling of the disaster that greed and avarice of politicians and big banks have wrought upon us, http://utopiathecollapse.com/2015/03/31/making-of-a-new-world-order-uk-and-europe-turns-to-china-for-future-funding-in-new-world-bank-established-by-china/ So much for financial security in america.

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?

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.
