The Democrats are good but…

The Democrats are openminded. And that’s good. But they’ve been so openminded that they’ve lost their brains enough times to cause serious concerns about their sanity and America’s future.

That’s why the Republicans might have the better following by truly free thinkers. And why they’re probably better for the United States in the long run. The republicans have their own madness, looking for that good place only found in God: life, liberty, and (the pursuit of) happiness. Democrats as the opposition sounds just right for them today.

When you see democrats act undemocratic, uncharacteristically unfriendly, near foolishly, and according to some mundane philosophy and a hatred of one. Should one not also again fear their reign?

If you can give solid foundations to at least one of these statements, then you must have a case to vote against.

‘I love you’ rings in my head

Thinking of how many times I’ve heard them

Those words, they appear in me now and again

Whether you’re here or some where

‘I love you,’ rings in my head

You were in love with me yesterday

“What have you done to me”
I still remember those words
“I can’t get you out of my head”
You were so in love — with me

That you wanted me like I wanted you
Was a feeling of heaven in my world
That’s someone else’s heaven now
You were in love with me yesterday

“Knowing and doing are two different things, …”

“… especially when it comes to pleasure.” An ‘o so true’ statement by Levitt and Dubner in Superfreakonomics.

It got me thinking…

Knowing and doing are two different things, especially when it comes to [a] pleasure:

Have you ever known the pleasure of pride or ignorance, or of ‘happiness’ or an addiction, etc, to prevent some one (I, for instance) from seeing/following the ‘truth?’ Likely yes, at least on television.

Knowing and doing are two different things, especially when it comes to [a] pain:

Have you ever known the pain of future responsibility or success, or of failure or ridicule, or of losing a pleasure or a happiness, etc, to prevent some one (I, for imstance) from doing the ‘truth?’

Knowing and doing are two different things, especially when ….
[Complete the statement for you, then move—on/off—as you please.]

And you might find that knowing and doing are two different things, especially when it’s not inconvenient for them to be so.

So, if I want change, it would be helpful to make it inconvenient for knowing and doing to be different.

Contented

She has travelled wide
I’ve only lived in town
I’m happy for her
And me, contented

My car is old
And sometimes I walk
I am happy for the mechanic
And me, contented

My wife is awesome
She’s my wife
I am happy with her
Contented

Grateful — 2017

Sometimes we do not have the words that fully go with the feeling and associated expression. But ‘I am grateful’ is a simple summary that works very well.

I am grateful!

We went through several threats, uncertainties, buyers remorse, good choices, bad choices….
We had to recover several times, and we did.
We had opportunities come demanding a price that we paid happily although it cost us.
We made new friends, and reconnected with timeless friends.
People made our lives better; we made some other’s lives better
….

Again, I am grateful to God for the year 2017. 

Cheers

Happy New year, 2018
