I'm So Sick of MSM Giving the Orange Monster a Platform Every Damned Second of the Day!

Get it through your heads, ignore the fat fucker! You can easily discuss his lies without playing a clip every time! And how many times do I need to see the 60 Minutes interview when I didn't want to see it the first time????

Here, maybe this will convince you:

What Would Happen If Everyone Truly Believed Everything Is One?

The belief that everything in the universe is part of the same fundamental whole exists throughout many cultures and philosophical, religious, spiritual, and scientific traditions, as captured by the phrase 'all that is.' The Nobel winner Erwin Schrodinger once observed that quantum physics is compatible with the notion that there is indeed a basic oneness of the universe. Therefore, despite it seeming as though the world is full of many divisions, many people throughout the course of human history and even today truly believe that individual things are part of some fundamental entity.

In a recent series of studies, Kate Diebels and Mark Leary set out to find out. In their first study, they found that only 20.3% of participants had thought about the oneness of all things "often" or "many times", while 25.9% of people "seldom" thought about the oneness of all things, and 12.5% of people "never" had thought about it.

Those who scored higher on this scale were much more likely to have an identity that extends beyond the individual to encompass wider aspects of humankind, life, nature, and even the cosmos. In fact, a belief in oneness was more strongly related to feeling connected with distant people and aspects of the natural world than with people with whom one is close! Also, while a belief in oneness was related to actual experiences of oneness ("mystical experiences" ), there was no relationship between a belief in oneness and feeling closer to God during a spiritual experience.

Well, I have certainly given quite a bit of thought about oneness. What about you?

The Rump is fine with state sponsored terrorism, so long as he can make money off it

He's ok with his terrorist friends in Saudi carrying out torture, murder, and dismemberment of a WaPo reporter because Rump has imaginary big money deals with the Saudi government. He's a sick bastard. Sick, sick, sick!

This fucker would be completely fine dealing with Bin Laden if he could make a dollar out of it. Make no mistake about it. Our president sponsors terrorism.



This says it all:

Is Anyone Else Deleting More Than Posting Today?

Good God it is difficult to maintain "civility" and not break forum rules.

Girl, 8, pulls a 1,500-year-old sword from a lake in Sweden

An eight-year-old found a pre-Viking-era sword while swimming in a lake in Sweden during the summer.

Saga Vanecek found the relic in the Vidostern lake while at her family's holiday home in Jonkoping County.

The sword was initially reported to be 1,000 years old, but experts at the local museum now believe it may date to around 1,500 years ago.

"It's not every day that you step on a sword in the lake!" Mikael Nordstrom from the museum said.

Can you imagine?! She must have been thrilled.

I Found Trump's Biggest Fan

The day after the 2016 election, Lynette Villano, a 72-year-old widow and clerk for the Wyoming Valley Sanitary Authority in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, sent her grandson Connor Mulvey a text message:

“I guess you can probably figure out that I’m very happy today,” Lynnette began. “Donald Trump is to your generation what Ronald Reagan was to ours. I am so fortunate to have been part of both. … He defied conventional wisdom at every turn. … Hopefully, I will be going to the Inauguration.”

Connor, who was then starting his senior year as an undergraduate at Tulane, replied almost immediately.

“Donald Trump is a bigoted imbecile who tapped into the racism and ignorance in America,” he texted. “You’re right, he is like Ronald Reagan. He’s going to leave this country in ruins and completely ignore minorities’ problems. The fact that he ‘won’ this election is a blemish on the history of the United States. I will not be recognizing him as my President, because much like George W. Bush he failed to win the popular vote. The only difference is that I believe Bush was a good person who was manipulated by those around him. Donald is an arrogant asshole with a history of abuse, mistreatment, and greed. He and his supporters should be ashamed of themselves, but it’s evident they lack the self-reflective capabilities to do so. I want you to think long and hard about what you’ve aided in. My LGBT friends are scared. My Muslim friends are scared. My Hispanic friends are scared. My female friends are scared. I’m scared. The fact that you’ve gone along with his disgraceful rhetoric the entire way through disappoints me to no end. Congratulations, you’ve damaged America. I hope it was worth it.”

While Lynette concedes Trump made the unifying pledge, she now thinks that he has too many enemies to follow through on it. “There is just as much responsibility from the Never Trump people, the Hollywood Left, CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the swamp in D.C., late night TV, Black Lives Matter—I could go on and on,” she says. “Half of the country hates the president. Do you really think there is anything he can say or do that that will bring us together? I’m all for promoting civility, but we are so divided and people are so dug in, it’s hard to have a conversation.”

Well, Lynette, I hope it was worth losing your grandson and your country. I will not be reaching out to you.

GET YOUR FLU SHOTS NOW!!!

I just got mine this morning. Hearing this yesterday convinced me I needed to get it done ASAP:

There are a lot of misconceptions out there about the flu shot.

But following a winter in which more than 80,000 people died from flu-related illnesses in the U.S. — the highest death toll in more than 40 years — infectious disease experts are ramping up efforts to get the word out.

https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2018/10/01/652140517/think-you-dont-need-a-flu-shot-here-are-5-reasons-to-change-your-mind


I can only remember getting it once, but that was enough for me. I don't see why so many people just chance it.

I'm saying it right now. Even if K withdraws, there must be investigations

Withdrawing does not equate to justice.

Edit: even if he is nominated, he should be investigated.

What do you make of Senator Flake's comments?

Is it indicative of the way some Rs really think but are afraid to say because of pressure from either Rump or their constituents? Or is it part of the show, allowed by Mitch because it makes the Rs look like they still have some compassion?

So if Rosenstein quits, Rump can pick whomever he wants who has already been cleared?

Did I hear that right?

If he is fired, then there is a line of succession. If true, Rosenstein needs to stay the hell put. Chain himself to his desk!
