Help Wanted.  This is your place, too.  It is open to all who can abide by this list of core principles.  Why?  Glad you asked.

The vision is, simply: Unifying America to accelerate prosperous liberty through active principles of indomitable Love.

Since this is about people who buy into that vision and value the principles, it is really like saying, “You want you.”  Really.  You do.  Trust me.  Or Trust yourself.  Whichever.

Tonight’s Speech by POTUS at joint session of Congress

Great speech tonight by the POTUS at the joint session of Congress.  There are those out there who were rooting for him to fail.  There are those out there who were cynical at each word.  Honestly, the feel of the words were pretty good.  The specifics will be a real big challenge.  REAL BIG.

Speech Grade: A (Graded on a serious curve)

But here’s what matters: what gets *DONE*

Lean On Me

Hello all.

Yeah dude, that blows chunks. I feel ya. Tell me more. I’m listening

What if Bernie Sanders endorsed the Ark of History?

We’re just sayin’. 😉

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt) endorsing the Ark of History on the floor of the US Senate, and asking about “slash tags”

People are saying that this photo isn’t doctored, and doesn’t even have health insurance under the likely-to-be-budget-reconciled-into-oblivion Affordable Care Act.  We hear that a lot.

Man!  Bernie Sanders giving us a plug on the floor of the Senate!  This is going to be big!  Yuuuuuuuge!

Listening to someone who voted differently

Merry Christmas!

Did you hear that I saved a bunch of money on Christmas!!  How?  I talked about politics on Facebook!!!

Kidding.  Totally kidding.  I spent part of this holiday time socializing with family members who did not vote the way I did.  We didn’t talk about politics much.  My plan was to first listen.  Understand. Continue reading Listening to someone who voted differently

What do you call the @#%!$% who voted differently in #elections2016?

Frankly, there is a lack of compassion and mutual understanding, and, well, Love.  I don’t hear those voices in our national discourse.

Answer: “My Fellow Americans

Yeah – if you want to demonize the other politicians, so be it.  But the voters?  Just like you, voters had their reasons. Continue reading What do you call the @#%!$% who voted differently in #elections2016?
