IOTD …. Image of the day, #403 …. “Simple …. a resounding NO”!!

THERE’S A LIMIT …. SAYING NO

I must set aside the light tone of the most recent IOTD.

I’d been trying for lighthearted images to go along the Christmas spirit and the holidays.

However, due to the most recent development from the Republican front-runner for the 2016 Presidency, I feel the need to say a few short words:

NO …. ENOUGH

The rest is up for you to find out and decide for yourself.

By Arianna Huffington
Earlier today, (December 7, 2015), the candidate currently leading in the polls for the Republican presidential nomination called for a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.” That was, of course, Donald Trump. As Jeffrey Goldberg just tweeted, “Donald Trump is now an actual threat to national security. He’s providing jihadists ammunition for their campaign to demonize the US.”

A dear blogger friend taught me this concept.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

THIS IS VERY SERIOUS FOR ME

Clint has to do it again …. “Talking to an Empty Chair”!!


Clint

~~October 10, 2015~~ 

Clint Eastwood talked to invisible Obama

Back in 2012, the famous actor did something close to a standup routine at the RNC, asking questions of an imaginary President Obama in a chair next to the podium.

After grilling invisible Obama on jobs, Afghanistan, and more, Eastwood responded to the (rather rude) president: “I’m not gonna shut up.

It’s my turn.”

And later, pretending that Obama had asked him to relay an unpleasant message to Romney, Eastwood said:

“I’m not going to tell him to do that, he can’t do that to himself, you’re absolutely crazy.”

He rambled from topic to topic, knocking Obama along the way for flying around in a big plane and running negative ads. He called Joe Biden “the intellect of the Democratic Party. Kind of a grin with a body behind it.”

Who Will Be the Next Speaker?

Everyone thought it would be Kevin McCarthy

But the four-term congressman and second-ranking Republican in the House surprised everyone on Thursday by dropping out of the race to succeed John Boehner. The House Freedom Caucus, a group of the chamber’s conservative hard-liners, announced Wednesday it would support Representative Daniel Webster of Florida for speaker, casting doubt on whether McCarthy could get the 218 floor votes he would have needed to be elected later this month.

McCarthy, the immediate favorite for speaker, reportedly told members that he’s “not the right person” for the job.

So, who is?

In the meantime, Clint will have to repeat his action of talking to an empty chair.

How bad is that?

~~September 19, 2015~~ 

THE GLOBAL REFUGEE CRISIS

Tens of thousands of people are fleeing civil war and unrest to find new homes in Europe — sometimes with tragic consequences.

The U.N. estimates that more people have been displaced than at any time since World War II.

It’s Even Worse Than It Looks: How the American Constitutional System Collided With the Politics of Extremism

Thomas E. Mann

BLine

Thomas E. Mann (born September 10, 1944) is the W. Averell Harriman Chair and a senior fellow in Governance Studies at the Brookings Institution. He primarily studies and speaks on elections in the United States, campaign finance reform, Senate and filibuster reform, Congress, redistricting, and political polarization.

He was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and attended the University of Florida, where in 1966 he received a B.A. in political science, then went on to get an M.A. (1968) and Ph.D. (1977) at the University of Michigan. He first went to Washington D.C. in 1969, where he worked as a Congressional Fellow in the offices of Senator Philip A. Hart and Representative James G. O’Hara, both Democrats.

Between 1987 and 1999, he was Director of Governance Studies at Brookings. Before that, Mann was executive director of the American Political Science Association.

Mann is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. He is a recipient of the American Political Science Association’s Frank J. Goodnow and Charles E. Merriam Awards.

It’s Even Worse Than It Looks: How the American Constitutional System Collided With the New Politics of Extremism

2012 book of political analysis by Thomas E. Mann of the Brookings Institution and Norman J. Ornstein of the American Enterprise Institute, published by Basic Books. The authors state that the current U.S. Congress has reached a state of basic gridlock due to both major American political parties moving to solidly left-wing and right-wing sides, leaving the center, and becoming “vehemently adversarial”. They also state that, with the advent of the Tea Party movement and other activist groups calling for ideological purity, that the U.S. Republican Party has particularly moved to a fringe position “unpersuaded by the conventional understanding of facts”.

Something to think about …. “Now one in America … Or anywhere else”!!


NoOne

~~July 19, 2015~~ 

Or anywhere in the world for that matter

~GAY~

I remember the first time someone explained to me what the word gay meant.
We were in middle school
Playing on the swing set behind Stoy Elementary
“He’s so gay,” she said
Bitter disgust poured out of her mouth with every syllable
I could not think as to why being happy could be such a horrible thing
And so I asked
My exact words being
“What’s so wrong with being happy?”
Now both my friends looked at me weird
“Don’t you know what gay means?”
“Doesn’t it mean to be happy?”
“You’re such a little kid, gay does not mean happy.

Gay is a boy who likes another boy”
I stood there wondering why it mattered so much that a boy liked another boy;
why it was such a distasteful thing.
And why it meant gay couldn’t still mean happy.

ALMOST 4 MILLION UNITED STATES CITIZENS NEED YOUR IMMEDIATE ATTENTION

~ONE~

Allow Puerto Rico protection under bankruptcy law
In order to help the island negotiate with its creditors, Puerto Rico would greatly benefit from the protections afforded to United States cities and government entities under chapter 9 bankruptcy law.

~TWO~

Give Puerto Rico equal Medicare coverage
As United States citizens, Puerto Ricans pay the same Medicare taxes as Americans in every state. However, the island’s healthcare system gets only half the federal funding as the rest of the country. To make up for this, the Puerto Rican government has had to further strain its already limited economic resources.

Lift Jones Act restrictions on maritime trade to Puerto Rico
The Jones Act of 1920 currently allows only American ships, among the most expensive in the world, to carry goods between the United States mainland and the island. This limits competition and increases costs.
