The people we know have a stored history of us, who we are, things we do and have done, in a true measure of who we are as people. We are intimately connected to that stored knowledge in their minds. And so it is when we lose someone like that, it affects us, just as intimately as we are tied to them through those shared experiences. It is no wonder therefore when you lose someone, the more intimate, the more intensely you feel the loss. What is surprising at times though is, the loss you feel reflects the feelings you actually had all those years. And you may not even have ever realized it. Until it was too late.

Life, can be hard. but living it well, is not that difficult. And in living it well, others are induced, if even a little bit, to live it well either alongside you, or beyond your sight.

When we have scary thoughts we wish to know ourselves to be scary and dangerous, too. Eventually we can more easily "see" dangerous people all around us. And we can be made, afaid.

It's cheekiness. It's incredulity. It's humorous diatribe.

In the end, the worse it can be, the only response is to make fun of that which brought about your demise.

The world is beginning to discover just how dangerous it is to misconceive the difference between true genius and what merely appears to be genius. Claiming something as "genius" has been tossed about far too lightly for far too long. All too frequently what we have deemed as "genius" merely appeared to be so. Simply because we did not understand how it came into being while it was not actually the result of genius, To then label someone as genius can lend to them a credibility fully undeserved. Normally this isn't that big of a deal. But when you make someone like that president of the United States it is a gross mistake that can not only affect the entire world, but can damage it beyond our ability to correct it.

I do not believe that at this time we need to or are even capable of raising the disaffected and misinformed common citizen (e.g., Trump supporters) to the level of intellectualism we all need in order to functionally exist. Rather we need to lower intellectualism (or at least appear to do so for them to pay attention and eventually heal with a fealty to it), to the level of those common citizens so they can begin once again to even access it. Only then will we eventually be able to discuss returning as a nation to the noble and valiant efforts we should be involved in of raising our state of intellectualism in a healthy and ongoing manner.

The virtues of absolutism are inversely proportionate to its effectiveness.

Life can be so mundane that it is easy to forget we are always four degrees of separation away from death. Sometimes, less.

It's good to respect and carry on traditions as they tie us to the past giving us a sense of continuity. Unless they are stupid traditions that should be abandoned, when we then need to make new and better traditions. Especially once they have been shown to be exactly that. However in not abandoning them and especially at that point, you will find that only stupid people continue to respect and carry them on. There is nothing more powerful for any single entity, than it's opposite.

Life can be a rabid bitch at times, but then, I stand taller than Life.

I do not object to theists holding their views. Quite the contrary, I support free thought and belief as one finds it. I merely differ with theism just as theists themselves differ among over their own God or Gods. I simply object to those who try to replace science with theism, as their own God gave us science to use in order to protect and support ourselves in this world and beyond.

I find it odd and sadly ironic that those who most fear our government appear to be the same who brought the current reasons for fear of our government to fruition.

Check this out. Literally any stupid crap you post to Facebook or elsewhere online, is immediately legally copyrighted and officially considered a quote when reprinted anywhere else.

I find it interesting how many people who legally carry a gun, shouldn't even be allowed to drive a car let alone own a gun, or secretly carry it around those people who just piss them off far too much of the time. And they drive.

It's sad how many have forgotten that America is about freedom while crying how it is all about...freedom. Freedom however in their image and desires but not as they see it, the image and desires of ALL rational and reasonable American's freedom.

If as has wisely been stated, travel is the antidote to ignorance, Donald Trump is most definitely going to need a star ship. And he should take most of Congressional Republicans with him.

Right "wingnuts" are not what you may think. If you know what a wingnut is for a bolt, a "right wingnut" is a merely a person who is missing one of those two wings on the nut... and only has the right one. They are therefore, to be clear, defective. Leading to yet another well worn euphemism in that it leads to their having a "screw loose".

Strive to be and do good. To be good not great. Greatness comes from practicing goodness, from doing great good. Not from trying to be great. Striving to be greatly good goes astray far less than striving to be great. Striving only to be great all too frequently leads to great harm, all in the name of doing great good.

Life, and love, hurts. Whenever you try to find ways to make it easier on yourself, try also to find a way to bring someone or someones along with you. Trust me. It will pay off in the long and the short runs. Most importantly for more than just you.

Especially if you ever want my help... don't give me reasons why you can't. Give me reasons how you are going to do.

Politics in one's country should really be a badge of honor and pride and yet nearly world wide, it's far too often simply an embarrassment.

Reality: A shared generality of perception we cannot all agree upon and yet in broad scope, we do.

One does not face down fear by completely eliminating it; especially when that requires transferring the pain of it to those who do not deserve to receive it.

Love, from fear, should be repellent. .

Time modifies the caliber of information.

All too often what is smart, merely seems soft to a weak mind. Beware those weak minds because they hold a mindset that leads to leaders whose talk is rough, who position themselves as stronger over others, and who address those others as weak.
