It seems about perspective.. it will all depend
Is the "sky the limit"?" Without beginning or end.
Can what you believe become appalling
If you simply believe the... "sky is falling"

Can a circle be described by just the "outer' or "inner"
Or a person just described as a "loser" or "winner"
Can you box yourself in..... and logic abides.
When you try to build a box, with only two sides

To make someone's life just an illusion.
of your own values..run by confusion.
And allow yourself to be amused.
To speak of confusion
As to confuse the confused.

How Do You LIke Your Steak

There are things about the way people think and what they do..that provides some insight into their political way of thinking.

If i was a Fortune teller.....and had a choice of knowing your astrological sign or how you preferred your steak.. to tell me something about yourself... I'd choose the steak..

Given... ONLY, ONLY, ONLY..... a choice between medium rare and well d.. which would you prefer?

Your choice will tell a lot about how you think....Your unyielding "perception"of things, your willingness to take a chance. if your looking for the good or just avoiding the bad..If your willing to let whatever it is... to speak for itself...How you accentuate the differences in things.

Another thing is how "the grass is always greener".. how either.. diounts their own circumstances or sees the reality of it... but promotes the circumstances of others.. never applying their own lives to others.. For example... a person on welfare is benefiting, a millionaire has to taxes.. It's just that simple to them..
They do it all the time... their neighbors, their friends.. how they view them in unrealistic terms...maybe you "make' less , but you have fewer bills. maybe you make less ...but you don't have the same burdens of responsibility.. Like maybe you don't have to alimony, or the full ticket.. for your kids college......Or own a vacation home.. an expensive car maintenance.. or having to live up to a standard of appearances, that accompany having extra ..
Those would be the people who have more.. But people who have less can do the same thing..diount themselves and promote others unrealistically..

So if I was a fortune teller... and i knew you liked your steak well d.....that you see the differences more than the similarities... that you were avoiding the 'bad' instead of taking a chance for the "good"........
and that you had an unrealistic view of others.

Although, it wouldn't be a certainty... I could make a pretty good guess... You'd be a Trump supporter..

Heroes, Bias, and Lies

I challenge the way people think of these things....

I challenge Trump's idea that McCain is not a hero.. because he got caught.
I challenge that because it's a bold.. out and out LIE. I challenge that as the mind game Trump's plays to justify himself. Because the truth is McCain is a hero ... because he got caught.

Heroes......for the most part... don't survive..... Yet, in our warped sense of a definition, enhance by Trump..to be a hero, one must survive.. But the death or destruction of hero, defines what a hero is..
A hero allows himself to be a potential victim for a greater good.

Trump is NO hero...Trump doesn't know what hero is. To Trump a hero is just a stupid person that allows himself to be a victim.. A true hero....WINS

For any Conservatives in their heart.. that's true and just...It's the writing on the wall that can Never be erased.. No matter how much "WHITE" wash you use..

The irony... is that with Trump.. Conservative can now become Heroes.
Just listen to John McCain, Jeff Flake, and Mark Sanford....True heroes of the Conservative movement.. People who are willing to sacrifice for the "greater" good.. Not a single one of them has sacrificed their Conservatism....they are sacrificing YOUR Conservatism
In a world full of bias and Lies... full of the self serving, and the self protecting.....Their TRUTH shines through....It's born from their life's experiences of mistakes, trials and errors, consequences, and self awareness.
They are not heroes, NOW.. because you fools have denied them....but they will be...
The irony again.......... That they are heroes....BECAUSE YOU HAVE DENIED THEM.......without that ...they couldn't be heroes.
Without that.. they would have NOTHING to sacrifice..

It's very important to try and put Trump in some perspective that we all can understand.

I almost always blast him.. because I disagree.. but I am constantly trying to figure out how others don't agree with me..Why it's not obvious..

Their are a couple of common traits s must have with Trump to support him..
First is winning matters, more than anything else.
Results matter.. and how you get those results rarely matters.

Again it's the "Truth of the Lies".....
What we know about Trump.. is that he's not crazy and he's not stupid..yet he lies.
even more than lying there is no perspective in anything he says..In his mind, it's all by design, for the purpose to win and achieve a desire result. That's what he does.
The ideas of right or wrong or truth and lies..doesn't matter to Trump..he'll use ANYTHING to achieve a desire result.

It's becomes an upside down world..
Where the Left only looks at the ways and means , and the right looks at the results.
There is an hypocrisy and irony to both sides... with the idea of the "part" of something and the whole of something.

In Trump's world..."rules are for fools" you the game to win... and if a rule prevents that.. you change the rule. In Trump's world.. any road to victory is a good road. the stuff you have to 'travel' through to get there doesn't matter.
Of course, the Left thinks it does matter, and they become just as hypocritical as the right. Because it only matters, because they want to make it matter. They make it matter to themselves, when it doesn't matter to Trump and his supporters
The Trump effects...brings down the veils.....And what we are seeing is the Left can't live by the rules they are trying to uphold.....The Trump effect has eroded the Left to the same point.. where winning and results are the only thing that matters.

Fanatic Activism... and open comment to Maisie

I don't wish to defend KIm...simply point out a fact that ELUDES you...

You are confronted with a world of "fanatic activism"...Of Muslims, China, and Putin.
All with designs. to create their own world..The idea of the WHAT.. they are trying to impose..Is never as great as the imposition.. you miss that point altogether.

So we oppose "fanatic activism.".. trying to impose 's fanaticism on some else..

There should be a difference between fanatic activism.. at home and abroad..The exporting of fanatic activism, as opposed to the containment of it in an individual country. .Kim may be a fanatic.. but in terms of the world.. he is not a fanatic activist.

So what is that "eludes" you?..... Both at home and abroad..

It's in that difference of the fighting of fanatics and fighting of fanatic activists., the understanding the imposition... each is trying to impose.. THE REAL imposition of their actions.. or an imposition of ideas that is simply opposes your own ideas. How you manipulate the imposition of ideas...into fanatic activism..

Those that you would label, either as fanatics or fanatic activist......have simply thing in common... they don't see themselves that way.. but each and every of them... sees YOU that way.

So if it's America First you want.. you got it. America is first, at the top of the heap, in "fanatic activism" both at home and abroad..... and YOU are at the top of the top of the heap.

Listening to all this crap about this Summit.. is amazing...

come on folks.. we're dealing with Donald Trump....

The Art of the Deal is to operate from a position of strength or a perception of a position of strength. Trump believes he can make unbelievable deal because... He is the president of the United States....the greatest strength in the world.

What comes with that is reverence and compliance.

Ironically... the same kind of reverence and compliance that Kim Jong has in North Korea...but not in the world..The same kind of reverence and compliance Putin has...

This summit is a Sham..... Kim Jong ain't going to cow tow, and Trump can't do any less than expect to TAKE too much.

What going to happen is this summit.. is not for an agreement...it's for an excuse..
The final distraction for Russian interference.. Trump is cornered....Peace ain't going to get it done..

MAYBE SOME HAVE ALWAYS KNOWN IT
MAYBE OTHERS HAVE FIGURED IT OUT
IT TOOK ME A LONG TIME TO DO IT
AND THAT'S WHAT THIS POEM ABOUT

THE GRASS IS ALWAYS GREENER
BEYOND THE HILLS, THERE IT “LIES”
THE SKY CAN NEVER FEEL “BLUE”
LIKE THE “BLUE” IN SOMEONE'S EYES

SUCCESS ISN'T MEASURED BY FAILURE
WHEN A MEASURE... IT SHOULDN'T BE
YET...IF MEASURING ONE'S SELF IS FAILURE
THEN FAILURE IS ALL THERE CAN BE

BEAUTY IS ONLY A COMPARISON
OF THE HAVE'S AND THE HAVE NOT'S
BUT IF BEAUTY IS ONLY A COMPARISON
THEN BEAUTY YOU HAVEN'T GOT

INTELLIGENCE MEAUSRED BY I.Q.
IS JUST A NUMBER IN YOUR HEAD
FOR COMMON SENSE IS ABOUT WHAT YOU DO
INTELLIGENCE DETERMINES.. WHERE IT'S LED.

JEALOUSLY AND EGOTISM
DON'T MAKE A GOOD PAIR
ONLY LOVE AND ACCEPTANCE
CAN GET YOU ANYWHERE

THE DECEPTION OF PERCEPTION
BETWEEN REALITY AND FANTASY
IF YOU DON'T ALREADY NEED WHAT YOU HAVE
YOU'LL NEVER BECOME.... WHAT YOU NEED TO BE

SO WHEN YOU THINK OF WHAT SHOULD BE
OR WHO YOU'D LIKE TO BE
WHEN THINK OF WHAT COULD BE
AND WHO YOU WANT TO BE

THINK THAT YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL.
AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO REACH THAT FAR
FOR ALL IS IN YOUR FIGURE TIPS
IF YOU JUST...... BE WHO YOU ARE

Freedom of Speech

The idea of Freedom...can be the strongest thing or the most fragile. Strong when it's your Freedom and fragile when it's about the Freedom of others. the hypocrisy of that is reflected in every bill of the Bill of Rights and the HOW we interpret them....and How our interpretation is NOT about FREEDOM or RIGHTS
Freedom of Speech. and limiting it..in the name of "Hate" speech..
My problem with it is....... who gets to decide?
Certainly not the speaker.... just like every else...Roseanne wasn't thinking in the term of hate... but speaking words interpreted in the terms of hate.
People that hear her words.... Get to make up their minds as to how hateful it was..They get to decide...
For those who would decide she's right.....we can't make that a crime.... we can, however, make the ACTIONS that result from those thoughts....criminal.. Even the idea that it's a crime to use speech to 'incite" criminal behavior...is redundant... for it is the responsibility of the criminal, and not what incites him/her.. because if that was the case nobody would be responsible... as "life" can "incite" criminal behavior..

So when it comes down to it....People deciding to limit freedom of speech....doesn't limit the thought of the speaker.....in fact has nothing to do with the "Freedom" of speech at all........but
THE FREEDOM TO LISTEN

So it's about the HOW ...A HOW that is a controlling affront to every.. Even more so...to those who see it as hateful... than those that do not. It's about who gets to make your decisions for YOU, and It's simply NOT about "FREEDOM" at all.
It's about how strong THEIR freedom is.. and how fragile YOUR freedom is.

That's the year I graduated from high school...It is also a four part special on CNN about the year that changed America.... My gosh... I had forgotten so much..and my realization of that time..about that time... was My Truth....but it wasn't THE TRUTH....I was an "insider" looking out....Although there was conflict within myself....I never could fully relate to an "outsider" looking in.
What I realized is that history is repeating itself.. but in reverse..

I'm not taking "sides" here because when it comes down to it.. taking sides has always been the problem.
One needs to understand the simplicity of the base of the problem, before one can understand and correct all the complications that result from it.
Political, racial, economic, and social has always had the same base problem...the "INSIDERS" and the "OUTSIDERS". When in fact.. there is no such thing .. only that which you create in your own mind...

In 1968.. I didn't see clearly...didn't know what I was looking at..
A presidential election year... I didn't know...who was representing and what they were representing........Johnson, Humphrey, MCcarthy, and RFK. I never realized the certainty of Humphrey nomination.. I thought we were free to decide.. any chance of that freedom was removed when RFK was killed...It killed our freedom, which at that time MAY have already been dead with JFK but we didn't know it.
Then there was Nixon, Rockefeller and Wallace... Unbelievable the support Wallace got..and that minority has never vanished........and a new era of campaign strategy, was developed. that has taken us here.. to where we are now..
The racial problems....magnified...by a little realized garbage man strike in Memphis.
Martin Luther King...and the right to protest peacefully came under fire. And with the idea of peace came death to MLK..
That old men could create a war in which young men had to died..
In amazement i watched the Chicago Democrat Convention, and the situations at colleges and Universities, especially Columbia...And I saw police brutality that was NOT racially motivated.. That the beatdown.. was not so much about black "outsiders" as it was White "outsiders"... ""traitors always get the worst of it...as opposed to the enemy..
Yes. it was both appalling and absurd.........And now we want to Repeat it. In fact we have repeated it.. It lost then.. and it will lose NOW.
Yes repeating history and hoping for a different outcome..Yes, that is absurd.

I'm getting ready to go.... It's not going to be with a bang, but a whimpers... Almost everybody here is looking for agreement or disagreement.. I look for neither.
I do challenge people... everyone equally....and within an instant ..can tell if they accept my challenge or refuse it.
There were two people here who I KNEW accepted it... Leaf and TX....They didn't have to tell me.. I knew.
TX is best one..because he can even deny it... but my last poem...he gave a two word response "Stop that"...My gosh, I have never been more grateful for a response...It said it all.......All that I wanted and All I needed....
Leaf said.. I was one of the reason he was still here.. Most of you don't get it, because you won't think about it.....I don't close doors. I try to open them..leaf understood it.
Leaf departure.. is a challenge to me also...there's more to life than dealing with this.. so for the time being "Sayonara"....
I never challenged Leaf about it... That's not me...I don't do that... If i can't say it to your face. I won't say it behind your back..
So ET...under your breathe you can say "good riddens"....And have a chance to develop your own "little minions".. like maisie does......you see, LIZ doesn't understand jealousy he thinks it's about him.... but I do.....I've seen it for the last 15 years.. in you... I've seen how you operate....underhanded...You'll NEVER live down "elgible" and before that.. all your "little minions".. You were maisie before there even was a maisie.. You were an Adolpho, before than even was an Adolpho....And you are a Liz, before ...Liz even knows what a LIZ is.
