Trump's Toxic Start

Well, personally I never gave him a chance, but this writer did, THEN:
1. Restarted the Keystone XL and Dakota Access Pipelines.
2. Instituted a federal hiring freeze that blocked 2,000 vital, new positions at the VA, and indefinitely suspended Army childcare programs for vets.
3. Approved a raid in Yemen that killed 30 people including at least 10 civilians, many of whom were women and children, as well as U.S. Navy Seal Ryan Owens.
4. Reinstated and strengthened the global ...gag rule thereby pulling all world-wide federal funding from any institutions that even attempt to educate patients about abortion.
5. Rescinded federal bathroom protections for trans students.
6. Used the office of the presidency to criticize Nordstrom, a private company, for no longer selling his daughter’s clothing line.
7. Didn’t fully divest from his businesses and has transferred many of his companies to his sons opening the door for a litany of potential conflicts of interest.
8. Didn’t release his tax returns like he promised, and has no plans to do so.
9. Demonized and repeatedly attacked the free press in order to build a propaganda machine.
10. Signed a bill reversing the Stream Protection Rule making it far easier for coal companies to dump mining waste in rivers, lakes and streams.
11. Announced plans to sign executive orders lifting a coal mining ban on federal land, and lifting or limiting restrictions on greenhouse gas emissions
12. Signed an executive order, later ruled to be unconstitutional, barring immigrants and travelers from 7 Muslim-majority nations from entering the U.S.
13. Lied about inauguration crowd size.
14. Lied about the size of his electoral college victory.
15. Lied about attacks in Sweden, yet never mentioned attacks in Kansas or Quebec perpetrated by white men on people of color.
16. Lied about being solely responsible for Lockheed Martin cutting $700 million from the F-35 program.
17. Lied about the New York Times failing.
18. Lied about Chris Cuomo never asking Senator Blumenthal about misrepresenting his service in Vietnam.

Eternal True Love

Trump taking same path to power as Hitler

Yes, I am going to share what horrible things I have learned from interviewing WW2 vets!
Trump’s rhetoric about terrorism is meant to scare people. He can then use that fear to get what he wants.
So he starts off with a Muslim Travel ban on seven countries. It doesn’t matter whether the ban is effective or not.
Trump just wants to keep terrorism on people’s minds and start to build fear. He can then set the stage for a major power grab.
Hitler did the same thing in Germany 84 years ago
 years ago. He used a domestic terror attack to consolidate his power.
The incident in question is known as the Reichstag Fire...
Actually, Trump looks a lot more like Mussolini.
And he is a big bag of stinking wind like Mussolini!

Take time to play and enjoy Life, it is Divine Time!

Seven earth-sized planets revolving around a not-too-distant sun.

2. There’s more politics to cover, but first, let’s broaden our perspective.
The discovery of seven Earth-sized planets revolving around a not-too-distant sun gives us earthlings our first realistic chance to search for signs of life outside our solar system.
And a “ring of fire” eclipse — when the moon moves between the sun and the Earth, but doesn’t completely block the sun — will be visible over parts of South America and the southern and western tips of Africa. (Elsewhere, you can watch it now on this live stream.)

To live in gratitude is to touch...

To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven.

Listen to their heart's song,

Listen, listen to your heart's song too. Believe in yourself and risk spontaneity, create, play and enjoy a delightful day.
Listen, listen to their heart's song
We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that something deep inside us is valuable, worth listening to, worthy ...of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.

Love your ego, watch your thoughts, even your negative thoughts about your "ego".


How Your Thoughts Become Your Destiny (Fractal Enlightenment)
Ga...ry Z McGee
correct-your-mind “Watch your thoughts, they become words. Watch your words, they become actions. Watch your actions, they become habits. Watch your habits, they become character. Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.” – Unknown
The preceding quote has been attributed to many people: the Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu, the transcendentalist Ralph Waldo Emerson, the Buddha, and even a supermarket magnate named Frank Outlaw, among others. But who actually wrote the quote isn’t nearly as important as it having been writ. In this article we will break down this curious quote by tracing the seed of Thought to the flower of Destiny, and see what we can learn along the way.
Watch your thoughts, they become words
“But if thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought.” –George Orwell
Every single word originated from the fallibility of the human mind. Our skulls are like little cul-de-sacs of thought just waiting to spring into words. Our brains are tiny galaxies going through the motion of creating a multitude of thoughts through the firing of billions of synapses. The only way we can share these thoughts with each other is through words. But first our thoughts need to be clear enough to become words.
This seems simple, but sometimes it’s the little things, the basics, that prevent us from being clear with each other. Sometimes getting the horse back in front of the cart is as simple as clearing our minds (the art of no-mind) so that our thoughts are clear enough to become words, while also being okay with the fact that we will never be completely clear on anything – quite the existential gamble.
“No philosophy,” William James asserted, “can ever be anything but a summary sketch, a picture of the world in abridgment, a foreshortened bird’s-eye view of the perspective of events.” So it goes also with our thoughts. Our thoughts can only ever be rough drafts of what we’re perceiving, terse outlines of an unfathomably huge cosmos.

And another look at the state of the world and this Nation:

Bannon has emerged in the minds of many Trump opponents as a mysterious and menacing puppeteer, portrayed as a harrowing Grim Reaper on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” He is best known for being the former executive chairman of Breitbart News, a conservative news site. Bannon once called Breitbart a “platform” for the alt-right, a small movement whose adherents are known for espousing racist, anti-Semitic and sexist points of view.
Former Ohio governor Ted Strickland (D) said Bannon is a “dangerous person driven by an authoritarian ideology who, I fear, has more influence than anyone in the administration.”
“This is a mean, vicious, intolerant group,” Strickland continued. “I’ve never seen anything like this in my political life.”
He has talked of war with not only Isis but with China also. 


Believe it or not, the world is

The world is evolving from imperfection to perfection. It needs all love and sympathy; great tenderness and watchfulness are required from each one of us.

WW2 vets with veteran grandfather holding his granddaughter

WW II wounded hero with granddaughter of veteran holding her and Chaplain on right. It was a great beautful meeting of four generations.

Reassure by gratitude that...

While we cry ourselves to sleep, gratitude waits patiently to console and reassure us; there is a landscape larger than the one we can see.

Fear is a natural reaction to...

It is going to be harder to rid ourselves of the crazy clown, when he surrounds himself with all these Generals. Our country is becoming more and more like a third world one tragically. Next, we will see soldiers everywhere with their machine guns looking very paranoid. Sad, very sad

Step 2: With attention on the person, repeat to yourself, "Just like me, this person is trying to avoid suffering in his life." Step 3: With attention on the person, repeat to yourself, "Just like me, this person has known sadness, loneliness and despair." Step 4: With attention on the person, repeat to yourself, "Just like me, this person is seeking to fulfill his needs." Step 5: With attention on the person, repeat to yourself, "Just like me, this person is LEARNING ABOUT LIFE." 

A process, not an epiphany...

While resting and refreshing our busy brain, meditation is...

Do these politicians really support our "troops".

Actually, I think they are anti-patriots, many of them anyway.
While these hypocrites love pandering to veterans, their actions speak much louder than their empty words.
