Life

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Envelope Pushers.”

I think of all the test pilots and astronauts, inventors and other creative people who are always pushing the limits of their lives and careers. For those people who do such is a testament of how we as a people in the Universe respond to such things as adversity, compassion, toleration of the physical and metal challenges that we come across some time in our existence.

I for one push the extremes of Law, Politics and personal challenges whenever possible so as not to become another victim of “fate” that a sedentary attitude towards life itself and the conflicts along with rewards can stifle a person into a melancholy existence.

Risks and rewards are inherent to a persons ability to cope with everyday problems that are mostly not within their realm of “control?”. To what end such becomes relevant whether the reward(s) is comparable to the “risk”.  If we did not have test pilots would we have flight or safe flight?, would inventors who did not risk their reputations and fortunes have given us worthwhile items for our daily existence?, creative artist’s who risk their arts knowing not whether good or bad criticism will reward or deny them have given magnificent works.

So I say take a risk and reap a reward or not is better than letting life slip away because you may fear the consequences of an idea, thought or action.

Join Us in the Fight For Net Neutrality

The WordPress.com Blog

“Net Neutrality” is the simple but powerful principle that cable and broadband providers must treat all internet traffic equally. Whether you’re loading a blog post on WordPress.com, streaming House of Cards on Netflix, or browsing handcrafted tea cozies on Etsy, your internet provider can’t degrade your connection speed, block sites, or charge a toll based on the content that you’re viewing.

Net neutrality has defined the internet since its inception, and it’s hard to argue with the results: the internet is the most powerful engine of economic growth and free expression in history. Most importantly, the open internet is characterized by companies, products, and ideas that survive or fail depending on their own merit — not on whether they have preferred deals in place with a broadband service provider. Unfortunately, the principle of net neutrality, and the open internet that we know and love, is under attack.

Net Neutrality under…

Financial Meltdown

For those to whom that keep repeating that to arrest, prosecution and hopefully imprisonment of the people responsible for fraud, robbery and perjury from the corporate and financial sectors that brought about the meltdown is irresponsible.

First, since you seem to think this, you should have measures in place to prevent such an occurrence.

Second, everyone is applicable to the laws.

Third, if you cannot apply the laws of this Nation equally to everyone, then you need to quit and we will find people who are willing to do so.

The Baghdad Bitch

  Ok, Iraq wants us to bomb them there rebels, we can’t legally do it so here is the deal we give them:

We leave our people there in the “green zone” ( instead of pulling them out and just using the phones and computers to conduct business ) and tell everyone that we have to commit troops to go over there and protect our people, then we wait until we can get one killed and then we can ok the air force to start their bombing campaign ( we keep the the money rolling into the coffers of the arsenal suppliers and they keep us happy ( knows whut I mean? ). 

 Dunna worry, the public always buys it.

Constitutional Rights

!. a) Collective Bargaining…. Denying the right to group for any purpose is anathema to the founding of the United States, for without the Collective Bargaining of the Founders, the US would still be a territory of Britain.

   b) Union Charges…. would you also consider requiring people who do not own a vehicle to pay for auto insurance? They have the benefits of those who do own vehicles and pay for insurance which is also (Bargained for) between Insurers and the People’s Advocate (Insurance Commissioner) but the non-owners are not required to supplement the owners and insurers.

 

2.  The President of the United States has within his Authority to appoint Person(s) to jobs that affect/effect the operation of the Nation when Congress fails to act.( Would we deny the appointment of the Vice President to the office of President based on Congresses willing to politicize the appointment ( such as the President being assassinated ), appointments are for the benefit of the Citizens of the United States not the Congress ( they need to quit fooligaging and make timely decisions). This power is granted by the people. The welfare of the Nation is his responsibility as well as Congresses ( the appointments can also be temporary until Congress ends it’s little tantrum ).

 

3. Abortion…. to allow/deny birth control is to answer the question of when does an individuals life begin? Does life begin at the introduction of the sperm to the egg( at which time the cell division begins( without this effect occurring their would be no life )) or at the moment of birth( such as when the newborn first partakes of lung induced breathing )?

  The case here is whether the right of one individual is more important than another’s, contraception should only be provided for as part of employment only when it is an Health issue( It is known that not all contraceptive use is related to one’s Health ).

 

4.  Buffer Laws… the rights of constitutional protections are mitigated when the personal rights of another individual would suffer( such as the loss of life, health or financial). Some protections are necessary whether actual or perceived to protect all individuals from becoming subservient to mob rule( Tyranny of any form should banished ).    

Creating For the Universe

  The only way you as an atheist/scientist/monkey can do to prove your rabid rants is to create something UNIQUE to the universe.

You cannot use what already exist’s within it or from your other fantasies of 5th or 9th dimensions, etc…

That means no using the already existent Molecules that are prevalent everywhere.

So put on your Beanie and start conjuring or

just enjoy ur Banana.

The Parasites or Who Owns Your Balls?

 Now if you follow from the twitter account y’all know that I am not particularly fond of politicians, however what I know and write is sometimes not within your knowledge of why I write what I do, but recently I came across an article written by Mitchell Plitnick, titled (Supreme Court to Rule on Explosive Jerusalem Passport Issue).

  I’m not gonna comment on the issue itself but rather the politics around it.

  The article states that when members of the current executive offices were members of the congressional offices, that they voted entirely different. Now we do know that the vast majority of politicians floats wherever the pharts blow them but in this one respect of how they viewed this issue says a lot about them. 

  When they were members of the congressional offices they tend to vote for whoever owns their wallets (sorry, that list is too long to list here), but when they trip over to the executive offices, they vote for whoever owns their job ( we know who that is).

  It is this wishy washy attitude they all have and it cost’s us the citizens much turmoil and aggravation with them. There are only a few in each of the three(3) branches of the US government that actually stay straight and steady across their political careers (I would list who they are but I don’t want their heads to get all biggy), 

  I am referencing this particular article because of it’s exact nature of the conflicting powers of who controls who on matters of political positioning. We elected those members of the congressional and executive offices to oversee the conflicts and benefits of the states of this union and to fairly deal with other nations (to which they seem poorly suited to do).

  So if you follow this link (http://www.lobelog.com/supreme-court-to-rule-on-explosive-jerusalem-passport-issue/ ) to the article and then do some research on the differences of their voting when they were employed by one branch from/to the other, you will come to understand why it is important for you the citizen to engage more frequently in political discussions at all levels of government.

 Read the article and the material relating to the issue (but not the issue itself) and you can get a better insight of your elected officials.
