Help… in a pickle

Leave a comment

In better than eight years with rescue animals (all) at home, I’ve never looked back… until now. My wife and I recently had a vehicle go down and we can’t work without one. What was being dealt with (easily enough) before is an anchor- small barge. I’d like to think there are still some animal lovers out there… I just need a little help to get me through this rough patch. This is new to me… asking in this fashion but I’ll eat hot dogs before I’ll see my animals miss a meal. Please take a look to this link here… a clearer picture to defray. Any help would be deeply and dearly appreciated!

No more ‘slick-willy’ and her (Mrs. Bill/Hillary) 52 card pick-up

1 Comment

 

[This is shared for people like Wendy Bugliari, and those short-sighted to want one thing over another (still) and not see we often get what we need. Here is to being positive about what happened over desiring to see it as they’d so choose it to be. Let the house-of-cards fall (finally) and be done with it. Move on and get over it… lead, follow or get out of the way!]

 

 

Now that we know what Trump was asking here… and the ‘who exactly’ is known… along with the litany of other dirty tricks- Rodney King said it best,”Why can’t we all just get along?”

 

 

Is this truly what one has called,”Christmas in October“… for Trump, and (it’s about time) vindication of a very ambitious smear tactic by Hillary and the DNC? I’d say so… if there is going to be ‘a game of 52 card pick-up, let it be with Hillary behind bars for willfully and knowingly violating ‘reported expenditures’ during the campaign. If she can ‘slick-willy’ her way out of: doing what she did during the campaign (actions and speech), gloss over the truth and even try to change our impression of Benghazi (her facts and what AfriCOM saw with a drone don’t jive… no protestors were present before the attack [top military officials in Stuttgart, Germany (Africom headquarters) watched live feed from a Predator drone]), aiding an International cause placed higher than American values (aid and comfort) or Americans themselves, or covering for Bill with his Weinstein-like behavior… it sounds like some would have been happier with her comforting lies- FROM THE BOTTOM of a deplorable DECK. Maybe she attended Tony Blair’s Faith Foundation (UN aided) before padding her own (an avowed globalist)! More on the ‘Faith Foundation’ here.

 

 

So I ask you,”Do actions speak louder than words?

 

 

This reminds me of What Rep. Wilson said the other day (without emotion over La David T. Johnson) because it is self-seeking, like the one above. Just a teaspoon of sugar makes the poison go down (easier) than having to choke someone, right? What chokes you up?

“Can you hear the words of Chevy Chase ringing in your ears?”

When Jane Fonda did the BBC interview, last week, she put back on the same old ‘Hanoi Jane’ hat she has always worn- leftist and Communist (anti-American through-and-through)! She claims to be proud of ‘the resistance’ and we should be proud of her, right? I don’t think so, neither to her actions nor of those by Linda Sarsour, one of the ‘Woman’s March’ organizers- against Trump! Since the resistance is coming from the left (I’m one too but I’m also a Vet), I will not follow in the flow of it by: taking a knee (knowing the history of Ft. McHenry [See below] and Ft. Pillow), kneel to hypocrisy by complacency (thinking as social media would have us all to think, act or say) or forfeit what it means to be an American that truly values this country, people (all of us) or those whom might oppose us (the so-called resistance). What Jane forgot was to place God first… and to honor the providence of His decisions being supreme, among the affairs of mankind, and what it means to encourage the sense of duty to what liberty avails to us with such freedom! Ironic she should spout her dislike in Great Britain (the UK) through the BBC… don’t you think?

 

 

 

Her Father, a Veteran also, would roll in the grave if ‘he only knew.’ Little wonder they didn’t talk for so long a time… after ‘her jaunt’ to Vietnam! Being mad at Trump but to support the woman that enabled Bill so many years… just another Weinstein Hollywood experience- this is bare naked hypocrisy! This is the crossroad of complacency and mediocrity, and they’d call it the resistance! I call it comforting the enemy… and think she might have tucked in the Taliban like Bergdahl did!

“The point of philosophy (today) fails us to inspire amelioration or grant fulfillment 3*”©

(*… 1 is from a contemporary perspective, narrative, 2 will be a blend of politics and religiousness, 3 has to do with philology [thoughts on thinking… and the use of philosophy] and current events [the Las Vegas shooting], and 4 will be limited to a Christian perspective only.)

 

Fallow is shallow
and it defrays life itself
of lasting, Press On!

 

When it comes to what the Greeks valued most, it would seem, it would be philosophy (that which told you what one was engaged with in any particular endeavor) but more than this was philology itself- ‘The love of learning’. Philosophy was used to define the nature of the world in which they lived in a secular fashion- without being religious in nature1️⃣. This was the beginning of what many might hold as ‘the building blocks leading to science itself’. From Thales of Miletus, Anaximander… through Plato, Aristotle and Socrates, whatever was discussed was based on ‘reason’ to substantiate it. Even reason was under heavy scrutiny, as by Xenophanes, ridiculing the notion of different nationalities maintaining ethnocentric views to either anthropomorphism or personification of natural phenomena to gods of their own choice. This led to Epicurus and the developement of a complete separation between science and religion as a whole. Pythagoras sought to keep them as combined thoughts, both religious beliefs and reason being of equal importance, forming the symbiotic relationship of one to the other.

 

1… This is known today as Secular humanism; which pertains to the belief humanity is capable of being moral and can achieve self-fulfillment without belief in God.

 

Philosophy thus defined: the reasons people did what they did, why they did it (not as if to justify their actions), and became the methodology (unconcerned with any solutions to social issues) used and associated to whatever one studied or practiced- without regard to any specific religion or god directly. Every facet of Greek life incorporated a reason for the behavior of participation, and the reason was explained by the philosophy of each endeavor, from neophyte to alum. Please look under Ancient Greek Philosophy found here, or here with Ancient History Encyclopedia, on Greek Philosophy… affording a clear view of what is referenced to and why! On the last link, pay attention to the very start of it, or the first three (brief) sentences.

 

Take for example the convergence of philosophies that come to together when there is something that gains the attention of all people- like the Las Vegas shooting. To date, this is one of the largest death tolls, an ‘active shooter event’, and everyone jumps on the bandwagon for various reasons (philosophy at work… being applied). Two of the first few to come into view on this event were ISIS and Hillary- oddly enough. ISIS claimed responsibility, calling Paddock “a soldier of the Islamic State” but the FBI has discarded the reported details as stated. As for Hillary, after a brief ’tweet’ of support for those who lost loved ones, she went to the heart of what she stood for…

 

[What is seen below comes from https://finance.yahoo.com/news/hillary-clinton-goes-nra-response-144612934.html ]

 

In a series of follow-up tweets, Clinton wrote that the country “must put politics aside” and “stand up to the NRA,” specifically citing the organization’s stance on gun silencers.

 

My question is ‘how can we put politics aside’ when the one, coming from the losing party, continues to seek her own ‘Agenda (21)’ first?

 

 

Professors are making absurd claims (presenting personal philosophy over curriculum) regardless to truth or reality of the situation, innocent people losing their lives attending an ‘American Musical venue’. This is not then a philosophy… but a philosophy driven push to alter one’s mind from the thoughts we might have- the ability to think for ourselves instead of being spoon-fed what to think! See below…

 

[Below an abstract of a professor(?) at Drexel University.]

 

“But liberals will drown out all discourse with a deafening chorus screeching ‘gun control.’ To believe that someone who would shoot down 50 people wouldn’t circumvent any gun law you pass is the height of delusion. The narrative of white victimization has been gradually built over the past 40 years. It is the spinal column of Trumpism, and most extreme form is the white genocide myth. Yesterday was a morbid symptom of what happens… ”

 

Then the formation of what happens with further reason for Paddock possibly dealing with depression- and the use of anti-depressants. From an article in the Las Vegas Review-Journal online. See below… an abstract.

 

” …was prescribed an anti-anxiety drug in June that can lead to aggressive behavior, the Las Vegas Review-Journal has learned.”

 

Even to lead us all on is ’the Fake-News’ News articles portraying a less than realistic covering of ‘real humans caught in the worst of situations’ and concerned more with where they might spin it. Really! Is this what we term Social Media or ‘Unsocial Media’? Shame on you… Facebook, Twitter and Google! Is it true… what I’ll continue to go on thinking in the future!

 

[A brief snippet… an abstract on ‘conditions’ the public was placed under.]

 

“… Facebook and Google users would have seen these fake Vegas stories right next to legitimate reports from major news organizations.”

 

This was ‘a human story’ being mutilated for political interests in points elsewhere but on the issues that truly mattered: innocents injured or killed, a sad plight by large area and those in attendance trapped, when cornered a suicide… and left with no explanation. All we have to go on is the strength of statistics used to carry a ‘burden of (possibility) speculation… the why it was done’ and to be there for all of those people having survived the experience of one man’s madness– philosophy gone wrong.

 

95% of people who complete suicide have a diagnosable psychiatric illness at the time of death, according to the Journal of American Medical Association. Understanding that depression is the leading cause of suicide, that mental health issues are behind more than 90% of lethal suicidal acts, is critically important for suicide prevention.

 

Where is hope seen… offered by the philosophies of so many- where is fulfillment found?
