A note to all politicians-

RE: Campaign donations, Really you have to put some more thought into timing, I for one am on a limited income paid once a month so I pay my bills get food count the few dollars I have to spend and make my 10.00 donation to Bernie maybe one more cause if it is important , I would love to do more but nowadays it just isn't doable , I'm sure there are a few million folks out there in similar situations, So sending hyperbolic ads really just becomes annoying as heck, please cut the drama pitch it is unseemly.

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

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.
