THE DAYS OF DOOM ARE COMING


“I cannot believe that this is happening in America” will be words commonly heard in our country.





In 2012, or more likely in 2016 there will be a Republican in The White House but this will be like no other Republican President in our lifetimes.  This Republican President, backed by like-minded radicals in The Congress, The Senate, and State Governments will resemble the Fundamental governments found in The Middle East.



The “2011 Egyptian Revolution” took place following a popular uprising that began on January 25th  2011. The uprising was mainly a campaign of non-violent civil resistance, which featured a series of demonstrations, marches, acts of civil disobedience, and labour strikes. 


Millions of protesters from a variety of socio-economic and religious backgrounds demanded the overthrow of the regime of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. Despite being predominantly peaceful in nature, the revolution was not without violent clashes between security forces and protesters.  The days of such protests are coming to America.


Today’s Republican party has no problem with lying and spinning to get its way. They have no compunction calling Barack Obama “Anti-American” or “palling around with terrorists” or “Not born in this country”.  Today’s Republican party will repeat a lie until they convince
people that what they say is the truth.  



Today’s Republican party is openly against Healthcare for the poor, Unions, A Woman’s right to choose, Public Broadcasting, Gay Marriage, Gays in the military, Planned Parenthood,  The Environmental Protection Agency, Minority Rights, Muslims and Mexicans..  and they aren't the slightest bit bashful about it either.


In Wisconsin in Feb 2011 a Republican named Scott Walker became governor and immediately began to dismantle unions in the state. Even though public opinion was against him and even though the people protested the governor continued until he removed the worker’s rights to collectively bargain. Imagine that.. a politician making overwhelmingly unpopular moves to remove a right.  That reality is today’s Republican party.


In Nov 2010 Republicans won a majority in The House of Representatives in the days after the win it was widely accepted that they won because the public “wanted Democrats and Republicans to work together on the economy and job growth”. What did the Republicans do? 



They immediately began to attack Public Broadcasting, Planned Parenthood and Medicare (to name a few non-job related actions they took).  Ending Medicare and changing it into a “voucher program” has consistently polled badly with The American People..  Democrat, Republican AND Independent voter’s have consistently said that they do NOT like The Republican Paul Ryan plan to end medicare.. Do you think this has stopped the Republicans?  No, quite the opposite.. The Republicans have doubled-down and now will just repeat the same lies like a mantra until they get the people to believe them and until the can fool the democrats into agreeing with their plans.


What is America going to look like when there is no “safety net”?  What will this country look like when there is no healthcare for the poor and elderly? What will we be when all we are are tax cuts for the rich and no worker rights?  An America where some are believed to be MORE American based on where they live or their race?  An America with a religious test on all you do and who you are?  An America where equality is a myth and gays are forced back into the closet?  



America will look like the fundamentalist governments we see in the middle east where the people in power have little to no regard for the people.  If and when we get a Republican President the people will continue to be stripped of their power and rights, mark my words.


Bolstered by the propaganda of Fox News, right wing talk radio and campaign donations by corporations and the super-rich, The Republican President and his cohorts will bring in what I call “The Days of Doom” where protests will become commonplace.. Today's Republican party doesnt care about public opinion they only care about POWER.  Eventually, the police and military will be turned on the protesters...   If today’s Republican party remains the same, the next Republican party will usher in THE DAYS OF DOOM.

Happy Father's Day to YOU and YOURS!!

THE PROBLEM WITH NETWORKS & MOVIE COMPANIES!!!

This is a simple issue.  Networks & Movie Companies are going to have to put more effort into respecting their audiences.


The 2 biggest problems today are movies that are just LOUSY and networks that cancel shows because "the audience isn't big enough"..  NOBODY wants to see a lousy movie and NOBODY wants to invest time in a show to have it canceled before there is a resolution to the plot.






First of all, in today's technological world with text messages, email,  & twitter a person sitting in a movie theatre can tell ALL of their friends and followers that a movie sucks on THE FIRST DAY that movie is out. The days when flashy ads could fool people for weeks into seeing a shitty movie are over.. Today, if you want success YOU HAVE TO TAKE THE TIME TO MAKE THE MOVIE A GOOD MOVIE.


Secondly, TV Networks have got to WAKE UP.. You can't keep cancelling TV Shows.  No matter the ratings, if people invest their time to follow the plot of a show HOW DARE you end the show before the plot has been resolved? How dare you then ask the SAME people to invest their time in new shows every fall??


Once a network buys a show it should buy a FULL SEASON of the show and if the network decides to pull the show from the air it should STILL be available on the network's website... This would provide its viewers the plot resolution they deserve.


WAKE UP Networks and Movie Companies!! We live in a new world that makes part of your job harder but doing the hard work will make success much much easier!

MINDFULNESS



Mindfulness is a form of self-awareness training adapted from Buddhist mindfulness 
meditation. It has been adapted for use in treatment of depression, especially preventing 
relapse and for assisting with mood regulation.  
It has been described as a state of being in the present, accepting things for what they are, 
i.e. non-judgementally. 

It was originally developed to assist with mood regulation and has been found to have considerable health benefits.   
These exercises are designed to introduce the principles-



One Minute Exercise
Sit in front of a clock or watch that you can use to time the passing of one 
minute. Your task is to focus your entire attention on your breathing, and 
nothing else, for the minute.  Have a go - do it now. 

Mindful Eating: 
This involves sitting down at a table and eating a meal without engaging in any 
other activities - no newspaper, book, TV, radio, music, or talking.  
Now eat your meal paying full attention to which piece of food you select to eat, 
how it looks, how it smells, how you cut the food, the muscles you use to raise 
it to your mouth, the texture and taste of the food as you chew it slowly. 
You may be amazed at how different food tastes when eaten in this way and 
how filling a meal can be. It is also very good for the digestion. 


Mindful Walking: 
Here the same principle, while walking you concentrate on the feel of the 
ground under your feet, your breathing while walking. Just observe what is 
around you as you walk, staying IN THE PRESENT. Let your other thoughts 
go, just look at the sky, the view, the other walkers; feel the wind, the 
temperature on your skin; enjoy the moment.
