They Can’t Take That Away From Me!


Wow! What a difference four years make. As I read this post I find myself battered and bruised some of my most cherished beliefs urinated on by the very sentinels I looked to protect them. The funny thing is that despite it all, THAT feeling cannot be stolen away from me—THIS IS ME BREATHING! Bring on your worst!

November 4, 2012 ·
What an amazing thing we are to experience. On Tuesday, We The People, will engage in more than just the mechanical act of casting a ballot for candidate A or B. We are having a grand ball for America and she will be dressed in her finest attire; DEMOCRACY.

There are countless stories that you have share throughout the year that reverberate in my mind; some are good and bad, the hardworking farmer remembered by his niece as she proudly cast a vote for LGBT rights. The Koch brothers sending out a “voter information packet” to its 45,000 employees letting them know who’s running, who’s a Republican and how to vote for those Republicans—-intimidation at it’s best.

Yes, there will be fraud; Republicans will try to prevent people from voting. In the end there is nothing that you, a malcontent lunatic, candidate, man, woman, peon, lord, sinner or saint can ever do to dissuade me from filling my lungs with, mostly, clean air and gaze at America—– and see beauty and democracy–the day I lose that feeling is the that day I die.

But my deathbed, irony not invited, is not today; hopefully not thereafter for a long time, will not be on Tuesday. No, on Tuesday I will be Asking that beautiful Dame America to cloak me in its magnificent gown of democracy— I want to feel it wash me away.

    Tonight on the History Channel (9 p.m. CST)
    Nostradamus: Election 2016
    “Nostradamus may have predicted the outcome of the 2016 U.S. presidential election; the seer refers to an epic battle between a ‘Masculine Woman’ and an ‘Audacious Bawler,’ while foretelling a time of great trouble in the wake of the election.”

    I think I’ll watch just to see if Nostradamus is closer to an accurate prediction than the current “seers” like Nate Silver, etc.

    Hillary Clinton is the person under the public eye for more than thirty years, trampled to the ground so many time yet Hillary Clinton rises up again to be even more stronger than ever.

    This Country a pluralistic the most powerful Nation in the World was built by immigrants to be the the melting pot of so many colors and religion.
    Let`s keep our legacy stronger as we move on and not allowed Donald Trump to stampede all over us to make it a Nation of privileged ones only.

    Please vote carefully, remember that Donald Trump is a thin skinned racist bully who is only for himself and revenge is his only motto.

    Not much of a coup.

    FBI Affirms July Decision Not To Charge Clinton, After Review Of Weiner Emails http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2016/11/06/500929164/comey-we-have-not-changed-our-conclusions-as-fbi-finishes-clinton-email-review

    “Following up on his letter that set off a firestorm of speculation just two weeks before U.S. voters head to the polls to choose a new president, FBI Director James Comey says the investigative team that analyzed a new trove of emails that were either to or from Hillary Clinton has finished it work — and that the review doesn’t change the findings he put forth in July.”

      Donald J. Trump is not sleeping much these days.

      In the final days of the presidential campaign, Mr. Trump’s candidacy is a jarring split screen: the choreographed show of calm and confidence orchestrated by his staff, and the neediness and vulnerability of a once-boastful candidate now uncertain of victory.

      On the surface, there is the semblance of stability that is robbing Hillary Clinton of her most potent weapon: Mr. Trump’s self-sabotaging eruptions, which have repeatedly undermined his candidacy. Underneath that veneer, turbulence still reigns, making it difficult for him to overcome all of the obstacles blocking his path to the White House.

      The contrasts pervade his campaign. Aides to Mr. Trump have finally wrested away the Twitter account that he used to colorfully — and often counterproductively — savage his rivals. But offline, Mr. Trump still privately muses about all of the ways he will punish his enemies after Election Day, including a threat to fund a “super PAC” with vengeance as its core mission.

    “Of the 11 proxy items (PDF) Exxon shareholders put forth for a vote this year, six dealt with climate. None passed, but the votes (PDF) they attracted sent a message: Investors want Exxon to take better measure of the risks climate change pose.
    Two proxies in particular got sizable support. One, asking Exxon to commit to the goal of limiting global temperature increases to 2 degrees Celsius—the general target laid out by the Paris accord—received 18.5 percent of total votes. The second, which called on Exxon to issue a report on the impact that climate-change policies will have on its business, got 38 percent. That proxy was submitted by New York state’s public-employee pension fund, which owns more than 11 million shares. ”
