I was involved in a discussion tonight with my wife and daughter and yes, it got a little heated. No tempers, just let us say lively. Anyway, it was about BLM and why can blacks call each other certain derogatory names, yet whites can't. We finally reached the point where we agreed that certain cultures have taken derogatory words and milked the venom out of them, among their own culture and people, but let an outsider say the same thing and all hell breaks loose.
This is where we are today! We can't have civil conversations anymore because we all come at a problem from different viewpoints and can't find common ground.
I guess what I am getting at is that we are different, yet we are the same. We all have hangups about one another.
I truly believe we are in the end times for mankind. I give humans about another 100 years, just based on the trajectory and speed in which we are destroying ourselves and our planet. Look around you. I don't care how old you are, the world has changed for the worst in your lifetime!
The storms are bigger, the fires are more frequent and larger, flooding in Miami is becoming a regular thing, the oceans are dying from loss of salinity from the melting arctic and antarctic glaciers We have stripped the earth of it's resources and poisoned our land, air and water We don't have that much time before Mother Earth says goodbye, I don't want you anymore. So if you have any kind of brain that can see into the future, look right now, because you future lies in the decisions you make in the coming months. We will not have another chance! If we don't kick these bastards, and yes I mean BASTARDS, to the curb right now, we have no one to blame but ourselves.
With that, I will say goodnight and may peace find it's way to your door (if you have one). You never know these days!
Being as how I am 73 years old and 7th generation American of German , Scots, Irish and French descent, I think I definitely have opinions of present-day politics as compared to 65 years ago! I was raised in my political views by one of my favorite Republican Presidents, Dwight David Eisenhower. Even he, a decorated war commander and Republican President, saw the danger in 1960 of where our country was headed. constant war, the Military-Industrial complex.
And look where we are today! The most corrupt administration I have ever witnessed in my lifetime, yet 40 % of our population refuses to see it. I try to engage in a quiet conversation with supporters of #45 and all they come back with are the same talking points, no originality. They are dead inside! I've never seen anything like it!
Joseph Goebbels was Hitlers PR man and Propaganda Minister. His philosophy was that if you tell the same lie repeatedly, after 2 months it becomes fact and nothing you can do will reverse that in the mind of a brainwashed person.
This is where we are today, in America. 40% of our population is brainwashed by the Republican Party and it's not a coincidence. They have attacked for many years with lies and distortions, the minds of average Americans, struggling to live on meager wages and allowing them just enough to keep them from taking up arms against the government. No, it's better to take up arms against one another, thereby doing their dirty work for them so they can grab all the assets and leave you with nothing. And believe me, they have already succeeded. One thing they failed to recognize is that you must maintain a balance between people with money and people without. Otherwise, when no one has any money to buy things, businesses go bankrupt, Sound familiar? this is where we are today, morally and financially bankrupt.
Keep up your delusions, tRumpers, you will always pay at the checkout!
Have a great day and may you find peace in your life! I have!
I have decided that I will not listen to or watch any political ads this time around. Let them waste millions of dollars that could be put to better use.
I can guaranty that ads by the Republicans will be distortions of the truth, simply because of how they have handled the government the past 4 years and them trying to stay out of jail! I will base my vote not on ads but performance and common sense.
They will say Biden did this many years ago or Biden did that. They wil tell you how they suffered so greatly under an Obama/Biden administration without saying a word about GW's or tRump's administrations, which were both total disasters!
They won't say a word about the 20,000+ and counting lies that tRump has told, causing millions to lose their jobs and hundreds of thousands to lose their lives. No, they won't tell you that.
What they will tell you is that under a Biden presidency America will look like it has for the past 4 years as though none of this is tRump's fault.
No, they'll say it's all Obama/Bidens fault. Like where in the hell have we been and who has been running the country for the past 4 years? The republican senate has blocked any progress on pressing issues except tax breaks for the wealthy for the past 12 years while America rots and the planet dies from pollution.
I don't know about you, but my mind was made up long ago and no political ad will change that! I only hope that there are millions more like me and we have a somewhat reasonable chance of having a legitimate election. Believe me, there are many bad actors in the shadows who would like it to be otherwise. Vote like your lives and livelihood depend on it, because they do!
As always, I wish you peace and happiness.
When 40% of the registered voters in this country still believe that donald trump is a viable person to carry on the title of President --- we have a problem!
When DJT continues, on a daily basis, to commit crimes and there is literally no means of stopping him --- we have a problem!
When Russia is continuing their efforts to
de-legitimize our elections --- we have a problem!
When the entire states of California and Oregon are being annihilated by fire due to climate change and literally half our nation does not believe it nor will our government help because they gave all the money to their wealthy donors --- we have a problem!
When 200,000 of our fellow countrymen are deceased because DJT committed genocide by lying and concealing the true scope of the virus in the beginning of the pandemic and refused to help the states --- we have a problem!
I know this only scratches the surface of the vast quantity of problems this country faces because many, for unknown reasons, will again vote for the Orange Idiot, but if you have any sense of decency or empathy, you will not be one of them!
I just know it will be a long road back to sanity!
As always, may peace find it's way to you!
If it wasn't so deadly serious, the downfall of tRump would be hilarious. It is fully under way and this clown is left without a circus! Woodward's tapes of the Orange Afterbirth admitting on a recorded conversation that he purposely held back on informing the public of the deadly consequences of Covid 19. Does this make all of you supporters proud to be so stupid as to believe a word this "man" utters?
Your time will come, as soon as we get this under control and wrest the Presidency back into the hands of someone qualified to hold that office again!
I don't feel a damn bit sorry for you and yours. In fact, I hope you finally feel the pain and suffering that you have put the rest of us through for the past 4 years. You will now have to go find your rocks and crawl back beneath them, because you will no longer have a place in our civilized world. You blew it big time.
I hope it was worth it, because it sure as hell wasn't from decent peoples viewpoints!
The world around djt is collapsing in real time and we couldn't be happier, because we can finally see some daylight for a change! As for the rest of us, it is time to go all out and push these bastards into the gutters and prisons where they belong. VOTE, VOTE, VOTE! Just don't do it TWICE!
As always, may peace finally find it's way back to America!
Hillary for AG of the United States! Lock them up!
It is time, America --
To completely demolish a political party in our country!
To banish into oblivion the hatred and anger of the short-sighted Republicans and White Nationalists!
To send a message to those whose only aim is the Rapture that not everyone feels the way they do! If you want to go, go! I'm happy here!
To send a message to the chronically greedy rich that the worlds resources are to be shared, not hoarded for their personal benefit and enjoyment!
To stop this hatred of others simply because they do not fall in line with your world view, or look the way you do!
I've thought many times that DJT is an aberration, but he's not. He is the poster child of an element of our society that is intent on one thing and that is something that we must ALWAYS be vigilant about, domination of others! There will always be a group who feel the the world is their oyster. We cannot afford to let them dominate others! They have been doing it for too long!
To elevate a person like DJT to the highest office in our land tells very much about the people who did the elevating. He is hollow, devoid of any consciousness or feelings for others except contempt. Simply look at the faces of his family. He has done to them what his father did to him!
We have seen this same scenario repeated throughout history if you only open your eyes. Why do we never learn? There is no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, only misery.
Take it upon yourselves to end this again, by regaining your sanity if you can. Otherwise, we are doomed to again repeat the mistakes of the past and right now the outlook is not good!
As always, may you find peace in your own life.
As a seasoned veteran of The Resistance, I am heartened by the past several days news reports concerning the turd floating around in the whirlpool of scandals.
Reports of his campaign committee being broke!
Reports of DeJoy being implicated in campaign fraud for ten years!
Reports of Osama Bin Laden's niece endorsing the Orange Afterbirth!
His military scandals being brought to light!
Reports of the Walter Reed episode coming out!
Reports of leaks of damaging info being leaked by insiders!
Michael Cohen's book being published today with many salacious details about the Orange Afterbirth and his pedophile yearnings, the younger the better, including Cohen's daughter!
Canceling all ad buys except DC!
The MSM finally growing a pair and doing what they did during Watergate, investigative journalism!
I don't know about you, but to me this is hopefully the beginning of the end of this nightmare!
We must simply DESTROY the Republican Party in this election! We cannot afford to allow it to exist any longer!
Let's go for a 6 million vote cushion this time, hopefully
As usual, may peace find it's way to your door!
I am forever wondering what it will take to shake tRump supporters off their game. Maybe the fact that he considers military personnel who go to war "suckers and losers" might do it. I doubt it, but what the hell, one can always hope.
Then comes the "series of mini-strokes" and "possible heart attack" that no one knows anything about! Plus "Adderal Dependency".
How much more do you need? Oh, I forgot, you don't believe in FACTS because they go against all you believe in! And besides, that Kool-Aid is so refreshing on a bright summer day! And besides, that Joe person is such a loser, he can't possibly save us from financial ruin. Oh, wait a minute, didn't he and that black man save our economy once and now he has to do it again?
tRump is boffing Ivanka and has been for years, but Biden can't hug a child without being called a pedophile? Get real!
I can no longer insult your intelligence, mainly because you have to have some to start with. But you have to live with yourselves, not me.I imagine that is a fate worse than death!
So until the next time, may peace be with you. dennismoconnor.com
I don't know about you, but I am physically and emotionally drained from the past 3 1/2 years.
Now I am being told by my granddaughter that if I delete people from my Facebook page because of their beliefs I am being childish. If that's the case I will continue to be so.
Anyone, and I do mean anyone, who can still support that bag of shit they choose to call their "president" does not need to be in my life. I don't regret that!
If you choose to ignore the facts of what he has done to this country and it's people, I really don't need you in my life.
I am a senior on Social Security, having worked and paid into it my entire life. Now if that fool gets reelected and stops the payroll tax, guess what? All that I earned will be gone, along with millions of other seniors.
DJT is THE most dangerous cancer in this country at the present time! And if you don't see it, you are blind. You choose not to see!
Personally, I am fed up with all of it but I can't quit. I have a 7 year old great grandson that I love with all my life and I can't give up on his future. If you wish to be stupid or blind, so be it. But I choose not to!
So, in other words, I will say the truth as I see it and if you can't take it, don't read it.
Donald John Trump is a traitor, a con man, a vile racist, a pedophile, a sexual deviate, a rapist, a financial disaster,a liar, and wants to be a king and overlord.
We cannot let it happen! We must destroy him and his followers in this next election! Failure is not an option!
I truly hope you find peace in your life, I know I will after November 3rd, provided enough of us vote to remove the cancer.
Folks, if you don't think this country is in mortal danger of collapse into tyranny, think again!
We have an autocratic lunatic in the WH, who will stop at nothing to get his way!
We have white nationalists taking over our police forces, who are being allowed to let brother nationalists kill innocent protesters and judges who allow that killer to have a month to turn himself in.
We have top cops - the sherrif and police chief-- who say that the victims " shouldn't have been out after curfew" so they brought this upon themselves!
I will ask again "what does it take" before you realize you are being used?
The world I have known my entire life has disappeared before my eyes in the past 4 years. We used to care for one another. No more!
We fought Nazi's on foreign soil, not here!
This game is getting serious, in fact it's beyond serious.
We may not make it to the November elections, what with all the lunatics out there! They are very close to dismantling our system of government and democracy. But many of you choose, for some unknown reason, to not see it! Believe me when say it, you will come to regret your blind allegiance to DJT and his minions. I guaranty it!
As always, may peace find it's way to you.
As I lay in bed this morning, I was dreaming, and it was very vivid. To me, the human brain is an amazing piece of work.
I am able to envision many things, especially designing things. I can move parts around until they fit, including stories. Which brings me to my point.
In today's political and social environment, we are so easily manipulated and led to believe what our brains think is reasonable. Makes no difference whether it is correct or not, if it seems reasonable or possible, it can become truth. Unless you have a critical-thinking brain like mine. I dissect everything,
I don't have ideas that can't be changed.
I am open to new ideas all the time, as my philosophy is forever changing with the times. What I may have believed many years ago can change with the times, because the times change and you must adapt to the present or you will be left behind. With age comes wisdom.
I see the anger and hatred of pitting one race against another as a sign of weak minds and their thinking processes being manipulated by propaganda, meant to affect changes in society to benefit the ones in power in order to maintain that power. And many fall for it. Too many!
Yet you have the power to change, you simply refuse to use it. I cannot imagine how others think, because I am not capable of thinking with a closed mind.
But I know that even I have ingrained remnants of my past that guide parts of my life, like it or not. I simply try to override those thoughts if I can.
I was raised with little financial comfort (poor), so I am frugal. But I have finally overcome most of that and finally lead a comfortable life in my skin.
If nothing else should stick, remember this. None of us have any choice to whom and to what circumstances we are born into. But strip off the skin and it's color and we are all the same! Every single one of us! We are humans ! To berate any of us, we are berating ourselves.
You can change if you really want to, but many are too comfortable in their anger to change. For that, I feel sorry for you, because you have no idea what you are missing. Good friendships, interesting life stories, opportunities. Think about it!
May peace be with you in your path through life and may you find it in your life to love others for who they are, not what they look like!
BLUE TSUNAMI 2020!
This election it has been said would be about who has the most enthusiasm. Well, I'm going to do something I am dread to do and that is to watch the Republican answer to what I just finished watching. So much for the "sleepy Joe' bullshit!
I attended the first and second Women;s Marches, the first in DC, the second in Philadelphia. What I noticed more than anything was the enthusiasm factor. Here were people much like me that knew what was about to descend upon us. We knew how bad tRump was going to be for our country. I just don't think any of us thought it would be as bad as it has been.
But still, we now have a glimmer of hope for the future in our sights! What I watched the past 4 nights was wonderful, but was also the culmination of that enthusiasm of 2017 and the years after. Did we get knocked around very badly? Yes. But we are a resilient people. We will bring back the dignity and respect for the office of The President of The United States of America! We can afford no less!
I have seen that resiliency first hand, I have felt the need to resist tyranny. I ran for public office in 2018 and met many people. I saw the enthusiasm factor in that election and expect to see the continuation of it in this election.
Joe Biden is a good and decent man. Kamala Harris is a good and decent woman. Together they will make a great team, just based on the past 3 1/2 years of resistance they have put together. We must end this saga of American History and put it behind us, after we make them all pay for the corruption and desecration of our constitution. Nothing less!
May peace finally make it's way back to all of us.
Let's talk about the children and Covid!.
Having just spent 2 months with my great grandson, I learned much about his fears. I can't imagine what is going through his mind on a daily basis, but I know it's paramount in his mind. How do you deal with those fears without creating more?
We have, for the past 4 years, gone swimming in the condo pool. For 3 days while I was there, he didn't want to swim. I finally convinced him it was safe, but the fear was there.
Now imagine what he feels about school!
Imagine how all the children feel being forced to attend school in the middle of a deadly pandemic!
Fortunately he attends a small private school, where he has been since he was 1, but that doesn't eliminate his fears. Now picture children attending public schools. I know I would be frightened!
I don't know what the answer is, I just know the fear is there and affecting them in ways we don't know yet. So bear with them and listen to them.
Thanks to all and may peace find it's way to your doorstep!
We have once again reached a point in time where gullibility and naivete reign supreme in our population. Much of this is due to the fact that the average person cannot or will not think for themselves, thereby requiring that someone else do their thinking for them so they are not responsible for the outcome of their decisions. This usually leads to an authoritarian figure controlling you, whether it be a "president or a "preacher". BAAAAH!
I know I go on about this, but it is true! Take religion for example. You are indoctrinated from birth to believe in a fictional being who will make the hard decisions for you and will always be there to guide you. Yet the fallacies of this thinking will haunt you, because you are unable to see the differences in everyday life. If two families, neighbors, attend the same church together, why do you say god saved me if a tornado kills the family next door, but spares you? Are you any better than the family next door?
Which brings me to my point today. You are being led like you are a dog on a leash with a choke collar and you are blindly following into absolute disaster. What will it take before you see this? You are in a cult, much like the followers of Jim Jones and you have sipped the Kool-aid, you just haven't swallowed it yet.
Death is on your doorstep, but you refuse to believe it. Covid is real, but you say it's not. Wearing a mask is an infringement on my rights! I don't care about others I come in contact with! Let them wear the mask!
Financial ruin is on your doorstep, but you refuse to believe it. Millions out of work with no help, no future jobs, losing their homes, no food! But you don't care, it hasn't affected you yet! You still believe that DJT is the second coming of christ.
If this fits the scenario that you live by, I truly feel sorry for you, For you will never find true peace. True peace will never be found in a book nor can it be found because you go to church on Sunday.It must come from within, knowing that you live a decent life not out of fear but in spite of it!
This country has always been and always will be a country of immigrants. Our ancestors stole it from the original immigrants, our ancestors enslaved others to do their dirty work and our present day system has made slaves of all of us except for a privileged few. We are slaves to the almighty dollar and the wealthy own us because of it!
I really don't see any light at the end of the tunnel, because we refuse to change. Many more will die soon, whether it be from the virus, hunger or violence. Only you have the ability to change it!
VOTE BLUE THE ENTIRE TICKET! And may peace find it's way to you!
I fear that I am slowly but surely reaching the point of no return. I fear this because when I don't really give a shit about what happens to the idiots that still believe in DJT, I have given up on America.
I consider myself to be among the more fortunate of this country, because I worked hard in my younger years and used my knowledge and talents to be secure in my old age. Many did not have that opportunity.
My wife and I moved to Maine 15 years ago and bought a house with acreage, so now we have shelter, water in 2 wells, wood for heat and gardens to grow food. We have turkey and deer around us. Plus we owe nothing to anyone.
Barring any unforeseen disasters, we are good to go.
But many others-- too many in fact-- do not have that security, which will eventually make us targets when the economy fully collapses, which may not be long!
If you live in a large city with no place to go or have no means to get there, you are screwed! No food, no place to live, on the streets with no job or means to make money, you're screwed.
But don't come looking my way, because I don't care any more. If you are dumb enough to vote for that asshole as your "savior" you deserve what you get.
As always, may peace find it's way to you!
