Marriage Meddlers

How I despise Marriage Meddlers - some ppl just love to stir the pot and enjoy watching it boil over - Men are the worst of this, in my experience! Go on, believe the lies, push my buttons, watch me react, see the aftermath and judge - since you are so free from sin.

HAMILTON

 "Stop whining and get over it. It's been almost a week!" say the same folks still upset about a war that ended more than 150 years ago.


let ALL the cockroaches crawl out - I want to know who and where they are - they have always been here - fuming - fermenting - the Only way we can rid us of these evil creatures - is let them think they won - let them expose themselves - hopefully they will burn as soon as the fly too close to the Sun!!

#THISISWHYIMARCH for the many reasons as stated - but speaking for myself - NOW for the 1st time #Trump has a Boss, as in Boss, I mean America --- and for 1st time #Trump has a female Boss, I mean Lady Liberty --- Trump is for the 1st time Ever Under # #ParentalGuidance --- I want #Trump to see us protesting and realize this - realize that he is now President for ALL of Us - NOT JUST President to his Supporters --- we have to keep nipping at his ankles -- his Achilles (greek mythology) ---- to make sure America stays on the progressive path to justice and greatness that we hold dear. As for the #Trumpets --- the cockroaches are exposed - they have always been here --- I am glad that the lights are on and we know who and where these cockroaches are --- we Now know where to step ---- all I can say -- I hope they fly so close to sun so that the wax melts off their wings and they crash down to reality ------ keep up the fight my brothers and sisters --- #FistUp

I personally know a anti-Obama person - she would always say how arrogant Obama was - well - now with her #Projection - has helped to elect the most arrogant person ever to be President -- Trump acts as if he is more important than America -- he will protect his legacy before America - America is his human shield  --- this Hamilton play protest proves it --- so much time spent on many tweets about the #Harassment and #Bully on Pence at play - but NOT ONE tweet addressing the #Harassment & #Bully on our fellow Americans --- again ---Trump sees himself more important than the people of America

What is Racism - how to deal with it

What l learned today from #SuperSoulSunday: Racism = not dealing with your own fear, pain and ignorance - easier to deflect it, blame it on others so you do not have to deal with your own truth - maybe best way to handle these people is with empathy - love them - for they might be the ones that need it the most.

We have met the enemy and he is us (Via Mamie Van Doren)

We have met the enemy and he is us. --Pogo
In "Letters from the Earth" Mark Twain wrote the following:
"Man is a Religious Animal. He is the only Religious Animal. He is the only animal that has the True Religion--several of them. He is the only animal that loves his neighbor as himself and cuts his throat if his theology isn't straight. He has made a graveyard of the globe in trying his honest best to smooth his brother's path to happiness and heaven."
Today's atrocity in Belgium highlights Twain's wisdom and prescience. A group of religious zealots strapped on some explosives this morning, and, in the rush hours at the airport and a metro station, detonated themselves, killing at least 30 and injuring 230 more. Paris, 9/11, Beirut, and the many other bloody incidents over the past two decades certainly could be called the opening shots in a religious war. We have reacted in kind, invading Afghanistan and Iraq, overthrowing Gaddafi, getting drawn into Syria, thinking that we can, with force, pound an extreme sect of a religion into quiet submission. But humans possess a serious flaw in their brain wiring: the necessity to fight over religious belief systems. As Twain says, we are the only member of the animal kingdom to do so. The Crusaders indulged in it for nearly 400 years, and nothing much changed except borders and body counts. It only gained a lot of real estate for the crusaders. The fighting over religion then and now is made all the more vicious by a blind faith on both sides that sees only its point of view as right and holy. I see no indication that this flaw can be recognized, repaired, or even understood. It is as involuntary as the patellar reflex, a deadly knee jerk to take the life of someone seen as a "non-believer." As ISIS and Al Qaeda spawn new extremists bent on martyrdom, OUR Christian zealots instinctively react with more killing. The right-wing douches in this year's campaign will be howling for more invasions after today--never mind that, sorry folks, but they won't be sending THEIR kids into the fighting. Before you know it, we'll have another 400-year religious blood bath, and this one will make the so-called Holy Crusades look like a county fair. Believe me, this is not pessimism. This is my recognition of the harsh reality that the veneer of civilization, culture, and refinement is very thin. Despite our iPhones and Ikeas, our Hubble telescopes and United Nations, our symphonies and artificial intelligence, we have not progressed past the 11th century.
Here's one last quote I particularly like: Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine, from "The Lion in Winter." She is speaking to her sons, who are fighting over succession to the throne of England held by her aging husband, Henry II:
"...Oh, my piglets, we are the origins of war: not history's forces, nor the times, nor justice, nor the lack of it, nor causes, nor religions, nor ideas, nor kinds of government, nor any other thing. We are the killers. We breed wars. We carry it like syphilis inside."

This is something we should all read at least once a week!!!!! Make sure you read to the end!!!!!! ...

Written by a 90 year old

This is something we should all read at least once a week!!!!! Make sure you read to the end!!!!!!

Written by Regina Brett, 90 years old, of the Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio .

"To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 42 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written.

My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more:

1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short – enjoy it..

4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.

5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

6. You don't have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.

7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.

8. Save for retirement starting with your first pay check.

9. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

10. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

11. It's OK to let your children see you cry.



12. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

13. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it...

14 Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

15. Get rid of anything that isn't useful. Clutter weighs you down in many ways.

16. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.

17. It's never too late to be happy. But it’s all up to you and no one else.

18. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.

19. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

20. Over prepare, then go with the flow.

21. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.

22. The most important sex organ is the brain.

23. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

24. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?'

25. Always choose life.

26. Forgive but don’t forget.

27. What other people think of you is none of your business.

28. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.

29. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

30. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does..

31. Believe in miracles.

32. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

33. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.

34. Your children get only one childhood.

35. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

36. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

37. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.

38. Envy is a waste of time. Accept what you already have not what you need.

39. The best is yet to come...

40. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

41. Yield.

42. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift."

Knox County cop fired immediately after photos show brutal choking of student

April 28
Usually, after charges of police brutality, police officials take their time reacting while they follow procedure to determine who did what. But this episode in Knoxville, Tenn., was so extreme and well-documented that the local sheriff fired the officer immediately.
Frank Phillips, a Knox County Sheriff’s officer, was fired Sunday night after a series of pictures taken by photographer John Messner were published in the Daily Mail in Britain. They showed an officer identified by the Sheriff’s Office as Phillips grabbing 21-year-old college student Jarod Dotson around the neck and squeezing him until he fell to his knees.
WBIR reports that law enforcement responded to a “disturbance” near the University of Tennessee where a house party with about 800 people had reportedly become unruly and spilled out into the street.
According to a police report, Dotson ignored repeated instructions to go inside, the Knoxville News Sentinel reported. Deputy Brandon Gilliam wrote in the official report that Dotson “began to physically resist officers’ instructions to place his hands behind his back, and at one point grabbed on to an officer’s leg.”
Messner, a freelance photographer who documented the incident, told The Washington Post that Dotson showed no signs of resisting arrest.
Messner’s still pictures, arranged by The Post in the GIF below, show two officers cuffing Dotson’s hands behind his back when Phillips came over and choked Dotson until he collapsed to his knees. Messner said that as Dotson was being pulled up he was smacked in the back of the head, “a snap-out-of-it kinda smack under the circumstances.”
Jarod Dotson was charged with public intoxication and resisting arrest. He was released from jail on a $500 bond Sunday morning.
In a press release on Sunday night, Sheriff Jimmy “J.J.” Jones said:
“In my 34 years of law enforcement experience, excessive force has never been tolerated. After an investigation by the Office of Professional Standards, I believe excessive force was used in this incident. The investigation will now be turned over to the Knox County Attorney General’s Office to determine any further action.”
