Bill & Hillary

Oct. 12, 2020 by admin - Comments: 2

Bill and Hillary Clinton are celebrating a major milestone: 45 years of marriage.

The former president and secretary of state marked their wedding anniversary on Sunday with posts on their respective social media pages.

"October 11th was a beautiful day 45 years ago," Bill Clinton, 74, wrote on Twitter alongside a sweet image of the pair. "Still is. The bride was beautiful too. And still is. Happy Anniversary, Hillary. I love you."

For her own post, the former Democratic presidential nominee shared a throwback photo from their 1975 wedding. "Forty-five years," she captioned the picture. "Never a dull moment, and you're still my best friend. Love you, Bill."

The Swift Passage

Seems like only yesterday that I was worried about becoming old; well here I am turning 71 on Nov the 3rd. I would like to say to fate: "do not pass go do not turn 71" but alas, life is not a game; life is the "real-deal"!

So I hold my head high and thank the good lord that I am reasonably healthy, reasonably sane and still strummin' my guitar.

Circus of Clowns

Jan. 02, 2021 by admin - Comments: 4

A large number of Americans have started receiving the $600 stimulus money this editor included. Is it enough? Considering the impact of the COVID-19 virus pandemic on the American people, $10,000 would not be enough; though it would be a tremendous boost to the economy. However that is unrealistic but the $2000 payments called for would be a "Helluv-a-lot Better" than the tiny $600 payments.

The "Circus of Clowns" in the Republican party currently holding offices are a disgrace to the democratic system and should all be shot; or at least fired and hopefully the new Biden Administration will be able to flush out the rats from the ship and make sure the people get the remainder of the $2000 in their pocket.

Live And Let Live

Are you wondering why the world is in so much chaos? Does it feel like we are on the brink of a civil war? Are you wondering why we can't get along? Are you frustrated with the endless bickering between Republicans and Democrats?

Corona virus isn't to blame. The problem isn't our failure to elect the right person. Look in the mirror. We are to blame. We are the cause of our own problems. Fortunately, we are also the solution. We can bring about a much more free, peaceful, and virtuous world where people live in harmony and celebrate differences. I'm not pushing any religious views on you. People of faith and people of no faith can peacefully coexist just fine. So can all reasonable people; regardless of skin color, sexual orientation, or even economic status. We don't need to have an endless struggle with each other. It needs to end immediately. I'm suggesting one critically important principle to you: Live and Let Live. Can you get on board with this idea?

Can you truly accept that competent adults have the right to peacefully live their lives as they choose; even if they choose to live in ways you morally disagree with? Or, ways that are unhealthy? Or, unwise? All we need to do is simply agree to Live and Let Live. Does this seem too simple and naive?

To the extent we have allowed others to peacefully live their lives as they choose, freedom and peace have resulted. Prosperity follows freedom and peace. We urgently need to unite around the principle that initiating aggression, even to achieve laudable goals, is always wrong. All laws should reflect this basic principle. Without first agreeing upon this basic principle, arguing about anything else is a waste of time. I'm not advocating pacificism. Reasonable self-defense is a response to aggression; not aggression itself. If we truly believe all people ought to have equal rights, we need a Movement that has such a principle as the anchor of its philosophy. Let's commit to aspirational values such as tolerance, open mindedness, voluntary kindness, rational thought, honesty, civility and a commitment to pursuing truth.

We must recognize that in order for you to live the life you want in peace and freedom you must extend that same right to your neighbor. Your right to pursue your life as you choose cannot infringe upon another's to do the same. If we all adhere to this simple truth, we can live in a free and prosperous society where human happiness is maximized and suffering is minimized. It's that simple. We must oppose all forms of initiated aggression if we are ever to achieve a peaceful world. We can solve our problems within this pro-peace framework.I challenge you to seriously envision a world where all laws are consistent with the Live and Let Live Principle. Intrigued?
