About Me

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.

Thursday December 3, 2020..Gratitude...

Today I am sober, alive, and well..Very grateful for all these qualities.
Also, today I am abstinent with my food, and look forward to tomorrow.

I thought I hated Nixon, (still do) but I hate Trump much more..

Nixon was a minor crook as they say. (wiretaps, lying, associates lying, erasing tapes, etc.) Trump is a certified killer. Total incompetence that caused death. That is it, and that is all.

Not just movies...but...."Feel Good Movies"...At the end, a person feels ..."good"

No real violence in these four movies.....(Yes, the 3rd one is a Shakespeare play, a movie too)

It's a...A Wonderful Life, Arsenic and Old Lace, Taming of the Shrew, It's a Mad, Mad, Mad World

About "Wearing a Mask"..will become as common as.."Putting On A Seatbelt:

Yes, When you get into a car, you put it on. It saves lives. Many true stories about that....

Mask wearing will be exactly the same. Awful, petty, ugly....but,................

It saves lives...!!!!!...

.....I remember arguing in a high school class (in late 80s) that I taught, about .....wearing a seatbelt...

This was long before it became a law in almost all states....(?).

Now, you just do it...same with masks...Everyone will just ....do it..It will become part of the deal...

A fight broke out between lawmakers, (Taiwan) pig guts were thrown: CNN

The real reason that Trump is not only stupid, but totally incompetent.

....Let's try to imagine another person as President of the United States. A threat to the United States is approaching. It is a very dangerous threat. Some kind of "flu" or much worse. A threat that could kill
thousands of people.....What to do???

.....Simple answer: Call in a group of experts on this, "flu" and ask these experts what to do.

Pick your experts from a variety of very highly qualified people who study the problem. Ask other countries what have they done..

.Then, here is the key....Follow the advise of the experts and leaders of other countries on what to do with the"flu" and have one of those "experts" follow up to make sure what was supposed to be "done" was/is done...

So how long would this take?
Let's say the meeting is called for 11am in the morning, and is over by 1pm. Not complicated since "others have dealt with the problem"...then the President could talk to his advisors and hear out what to do...Then start to ...."do it"...Maybe this talk takes another day..

....Let's say the this getting the info stuff takes ........one day, and getting started take: one day
Yep....two days....just 2 days........................ (maybe getting started takes 2 days, not one)
Now the President of the United States has help, and once the orders were given, lots of people would
help to save lives from ............"the flu"
..... Why?....Lots of people in the U.S.A. care about ........"saving lives"

Sadly, and ironically, Donald Trump is currently the President of the United States
doesn't give a "shit" or"a damn about saving lives." How do I know?

........ Because if Trump gave a shit about this topic, he would have done something about it.

A wonderful poem to share on Thanksgiving Day...

I learned this poem 63 years ago in 5th grade...in Miss Sullivan's class. Please read entire poem,
it is short, ...and it is a classic, Thank You

Abou Ben Adhem

By Leigh Hunt

Abou Ben Adhem (may his tribe increase!)
Awoke one night from a deep dream of peace,
And saw, within the moonlight in his room,
Making it rich, and like a lily in bloom,
An angel writing in a book of gold:ó
Exceeding peace had made Ben Adhem bold

And to the presence in the room he said,
"What writest thou?"óThe vision raised its head,
And with a look made of all sweet accord,
Answered, "The names of those who love the Lord."
"And is mine one?" said Abou. "Nay, not so,"
Replied the angel. Abou spoke more low,

But cheerly still; and said, "I pray thee, then
Write me as one that loves his fellow men."
The angel wrote, and vanished. The next night
It came again with a great wakening light,
And showed the names whom love of God had blest,
And lo! Ben Adhem's name led all the rest.
