Without badmouthing any party here, can you tell me...
Which party has slowly but methodically morphed into a party of backroom plotting Christian fundamentalist who wield their bibles like shields and their crosses like swords?
Which party poses as the blind faithful, when convenient, who in reality are closet racists, war criminals, thieves, and cheats in Armani suits aimed at diminishing any Americans who are unlike them?
Which party has become the epitome of why the rest of the world believes the United States has lost her credibility?
Which party can be described as entrenched obstructionists?
If any of these describes your party of preference... maybe you should defect.

Without badmouthing any party here, can you tell me...
60 years ago to the minute, as of 6:30 AM this very morning, I was born in Carson Memorial Hospital in Brooklyn, New York. As this birthday has approached I have looked at my life, the ups...the downs...the successes...and the failures, and tried to assimilate some sort of rhyme or reason to it all. Yet, I keep returning to one fact, applicable to each and every one of us, that I believe to be the most important.Read More »from THE BIG 6-0
Regardless of our successes, however you may weigh success, life itself is the true gift. For it matters not if you may be pauper or prince in this life, but rather that you live. I say live in present tense because from conception each and every one of us embarked upon a journey through eternity.
The older we get, time, can be described as our greatest enemy. And it is in the knowing that time is nonexistent in the next world, as we continue our journey, that replaces apprehension of its rapid passing with thoughts of calm peacefulness.
The fact that one
Just a few short questions... and I will not argue about it. I was a BIG supporter of Barack Obama as many may well know. But he has seemingly been a disapointment to many Americans. As for me I still support him, but sometimes I'm pulled both ways.Read More »from WHAT WE WHO SUPPORTED OBAMA THINK NOW
For instance, I loved the way he got Bin Laden, but I don't feel good about him sending troops into Africa. (just to use as two examples of many other issues) In this economy what can he be thinking?
How do you feel?
Has he pleased you and disappointed you at the same time?
Is he the problem or Congress?
I know there are many haters out there who hated him then and hate him now, and who will feel compelled to weigh in here. But you are not the ones I want to hear from with your prejudice and generally bad attitudes. I want to hear from those of you out there like me who supported him then, yet now...just don't know anymore.
I fully intend to print out this posting and its comments and send them in a letter to the White House.
Near death experiences are identified as experiences associated with actual clinical death. People declared clinically dead have literally reawakened describing sensations of total detachment from their bodies, feelings of floating above the bed, feelings of total serenity and warmth, and of course...visions of the light.
With the latest developments in resuscitation and new technology many more people are being brought back from the brink of death, all of whom have their stories, all of which are very similar.
While science explains many of these stories as hallucinations or events that are imagined, and things that occur naturally when the body shuts down, others say there is too much overwhelming similarity to discount after death experiences as hallucinations, and regard them as evidence of an afterlife.
Literally millions of Americans claim to have had NDE (near death experiences). Below are a number of the things that many of them commonly experience. These areRead More »from NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCES FACT OR FICTION
The following is an excerpt from the writers epilogue of my novel entitled..."Sang` Blanc the Dark Prophecy". It is my hope that you will, at the very least, find it to be entertaining and thought provoking. Sang` Blanc was published back around 2001, and in essence is a story about the birth life and death of the Antichrist in New Orleans at the turn of the 18th century. This excerpt was copied and pasted from the original submitted manuscript and may vary slightly from the published version....Read More »from THE HORROR LURKING JUST OUT OF OUR VIEW
Sang` Blanc/Lane--190 XIII
That which can be considered to be the most malignant horror is that which is unseen, and that which is unknown. The ancient Vikings, when in thick fog at sea, would fire an arrow into the fog at regular intervals, fearful of what horror lurked ahead just out of their view.
At times, in our everyday lives, it often seems as though we ourselves are surrounded by a thick fog through which we cannot see the horror that lurks ahead
When we see the carved lines of Nazca viewed from space it becomes vividly apparent that what we are seeing is an ancient landing strip constructed for space craft. Below is only one image, but you will find many on line.Read More »from THE LINES OF NAZCA
The distinguishing proof to this claim by all logical sense is that these designs and figures are so vast... "they can only be seen from the sky". And further, if man had tried to create such designs and figures from his vantage point on the ground, they could have never been implemented with such precision and exhibiting measurements of such exactitude.
It may seem logical and safe for people to say that we are alone in the universe. But it is neither true nor factual. We are "not" alone in the universe. The universe contains perhaps billions of galaxies, and the likelihood that this planet was once visited by beings from other galaxies is overwhelmingly compelling in such images.
It becomes and fits mans mold of god and creationism and all the
Our future will be the direct outcome of our present. The thoughts we think, the things we do, indeed our very dreams we dream for ourselves are building our future one brick at a time as surely as the master builder brick by brick constructs the mansion he is contracted to build.
It is believed that if one can some how ignore the things in their lives that they are unhappy with and imagine their future as a horn of plenty that is overflowing, they shall indeed begin to rise above their sorry present state. These are not new thoughts. Great thinkers of the past philosophized these things many centuries ago.
The power of thought can only work in our favor if we think the right thoughts, and discard the wrong ones. The law of attraction will always work its magic if we but let it, and that magic is the simple fact that like attracts like.Read More »from OUR FUTURE HAPPINESS
Worry, despair, desperation, apprehension, and doubt are thoughts that secure that very future. How many times have we heard said...
Throughout history man has been fascinated with the possibility of time travel. Why, the very idea of being able to travel into the future for a view of history literally before it happened was so enthralling, that some of the greatest minds of the time conducted extensive research into the prospect of time travel.
Although current experimentation in time travel is being conducted yet today, Albert Einstein formulated his own theory about it many years ago. It was Einstein's belief that our past, present, and future are all happening right now, simultaneously. Further, were we able to simply adjust our mental vibrations, we would be able to travel through the very fabric of time. Perhaps Nostradamus was able to do so. This could explain how he could so accurately predict the future.
While traveling into the future certainly holds its fascinations, wouldn't it be marvelous to have the ability to travel into the past? Imagine, if you could perfect Einstein's technique youRead More »from TRAVELERS IN TIME
I'd like to think I have mellowed with time / age, but for the life of me I cannot really say that this is the case. I am older, yes, but I do not really feel it. Often is the time that I find myself getting passionate about something, or emotionally involved, and then all pissed off, and when that happens mellow is no longer really part of the equation. I have really worked on not being such an A hole about things that concern me so, but I cannot help being opinionated...that's what makes me...well...

I have avoided blogging about politics, religion, or other provocative subjects, because with opinions being at great variance regarding such topics I always seem to end up having words with someone. Then it gets ugly before I know it. This has actually lost me friends because as an Italian Scorpio, temperance, tolerance, or backing down to avoid conflict are not qualities that are in my nature. But as a true to myself Italian I can honestly say that I do live by the "Italian"
Not long ago I found myself deeply regretting something I had done many years ago that wished I hadn't. It set my mind to thinking…
Our past is comprised of thousands, or perhaps millions of memories. Weather you are one who never reflects on such things, or one who judges yourself often, the fact is, the past cannot be changed. Sometimes we may try to make amends for things that we were responsible for in the past, although no recompense will ever erase it.
We "all" feel the pain of things that hurt us in the past, and the sting and disillusion associated with such memories are escaped by no one. Yet because regret is considered to be such a negative emotion, you always hear people say "I have no regrets". Let me say to you…everyone has regrets, even if they refuse to admit it. But I am realizing that it is in how we deal with regrets in the aftermath of such things that determines the happiness we will be capable of feeling as time moves forward.
