We can get one of two people with the release of defensive end Michael Sam from the St. Louis Rams. Michael Sam can look at this release as a show of fairness that his skills were not good enough for the NFL and try harder while he is still young to be a better defensive player. Machael Sam can just as easily blame the release on discrimination. Which ever shows up the next couple days will be interesting to see. What character will triumph. Accepting or Deniel.  Everyone will have an opinion on the matter tossing their angry and venemous words at one another like a money with his poop in a display of banishing egos.

Please allow us to practice alternatives to shouting matches and blinding intolerance to be entertained by both sides.

The Gift of angry and hateful words does more harm to ourselves than it does to others. From “Mindfulness in Plain English” by Bhante Gunaratana – The Power of Loving Friendliness.

“When someone tries to make you angry or does something to hurt you, stay with your thoughts of loving friendliness toward that person. A person filled with thoughts of loving friendliness, the Buddha said is like the earth. Someone may try to make the earth disappear by digging at it with a hoe or an ax, but that is a futile act. No amount of digging – not in one life time or many life times – makes the earth vanish. The earth remains, unaffected, undiminished. Like the earth, a person full of loving friendliness is untouched by anger.”

Intolerance is never appeased by more intolerance. The Gay community trying to force others to accept their choices, but unwilling to accept other theirs choices is an example of intolerance appeased by more intolerance. Intolerance is a two way street. Christians and the Gay community pass one another all the time. They have harsh, hateful, and unkind words for one another. “By love alone is anger appeased.” ~ The Dhammapada

We are what the world is. If we want peace, love and acceptance – we must BE peace, love and acceptance. This message is for both sides of the debate.

Again, Bhante Gunaratana writes, “In another story from the Buddha’s life, there was a man named Akkosina, whose name means, “not getting angry.” But in fact, this man was exactly the opposite: he was always getting angry. When he heard the Buddha never got angry with anyone (even those who treated him horribly) he decided to visit him. He went up to Buddha and scolded him for all sorts of things, insulting him and calling him awful names. At the end of his tirade, Buddha asked this man if he had and friends and relatives. “Yes,” he replied. “When you visit them, do you take them gifts?” “Of course,” said the man. “I always bring them gifts.” “What happens if they don’t accept you gifts,” the Buddha asked. “Well, I just take them home and enjoy them with my own family.” “And likewise,” said the Buddha, “You have brought me a gift today that I don’t accept. You may take that gift home to your family.” With patience, wit, and loving friendliness, the Buddha invites us to change how we think about the gift of angry words.”

What about the gift of gentle kindness and understanding coming from both sides. Anger and resentment is the gift we carry within ourselves. Why are we so quick to give this funky gift to others when we can very easily give the gift of friendliness and understanding? Finally, Bhante Gunaratana, “We must let the power of loving friendliness shine through every encounter with others.”

Mindfulness Meditation means being in the present moment. To be fully aware of your situation and emotions. To observe them and not become attached to the ego that is attached to your opinion of SELF. Observe the breath. The breath is universal. It makes us one. We have very different beliefs, but we breath the same. Take a deep cleansing breath before allowing your ego to react. Give thanks to the breath. Send loving kindness towards those who bring the gift of hatred and anger with them, but do not accept the gift of intolerance. That is theirs to bear alone.

 

The problem with Democrats and their philsophy – well one of many – is they don’t think people can do anthing without their help. Abusers to the same thing to their victims. They have no faith or confidence in the individual. Progressives especially think low income people lack the imagination and drive to achieve anything and that is why they coddle them and keep them poor and stupid.

The politics of happiness never made anyone very happy. It helps having a scapegoat to blame everything on. Conservatives, Rich People, Koch Brothers – whatever. As long as you can point the finger at someone, nothing will ever improve. Try that in your own life. Keep repeating the same mistakes and blaming it on your parents, your spouse, your lover, your boss, and see how your life improves. Abusers do that to their victims.

When you convince people they are the victim of their circumstances and tell them their poverty is someone else’s fault, they will always be looking for someone or something else to lift them out of poverty and ignorance. That is where the Democrats come in saying, “I will save you.” They also say, “The Republicans don’t care about you.” Abusers say the same thing to their victims.

This philosophy of ‘mistakes were made, but not by me’ does not lift anyone out of poverty. tt never has. Basing votes on the color of a persons skin, their sexual parts, and their sexual orintation is rather shallow and limiting. Wringing concessions out of the American people while convincing the poor they are where they are and who they are because someone else put them there does not solve the problem. It empowers government and poltiicans which it is designed to do. It does not empower the Individual. It devalues them – on purpose.

But, if people are convinced they are the creators of their circumstances, the builder, maker, and shaper of their own destiny, the creator of their own life choices, there is nothing that a strong faith and will cannot accomplish – within reason of course. If you can dream it, you can be it. That is when the people begin to say, “No thanks Democrats, I can save myself”.

In a recent speech in Kansas City, President Obama addressed the crowd regarding Republicans saying, “Stop being mad all the time. Stop just hating all the time. Come on..”

“The suspicious believe everybody to be suspicious; liars feels secure in the thought that he is not so foolish to believe that there is such a phenomenon as a strictly truthful person ..”~ James Allen – The racist will believe everyone to be racists, the intolerant – intolerant. The hater will accuse others of being hateful. “Do you wish for kindness? Be kind. Do you ask for truth? Be true. What you give of yourself you find; Your World Is A Reflex Of YOU!” ~J. Allen

President Obama acts in bad faith. He thinks he can wish to be kind and act differently – and people will see that what he wishes to be – or what he expects others to be, and not what he actually is. If President Obama had shown an ounce of kindness towards the Republicans, Conservatives, or any other group that disagrees with his philosophy, his complaint maybe be justified. But, he hasn’t.

“When it is said that man defines himself, it is often perceived as stating that man can “wish” to be something – anything, a bird, for instance – and then be it. According to Sartre’s account, however, this would be a kind of bad faith. What is meant by the statement is that man is (1) defined only insofar as he acts and (2) that he is responsible for his actions.” ~Joseph Catalano

It can be said, for example, if a man acts with hatred towards other people (individuals who disagree with him) is, by that act, defined as a hateful person.

Sarte’s Existentialism is a Humanism: “man first of all exists, encounters himself, surges up in the world – and defines himself afterwards.”

Obama has it backwards. He thinks he can talk about being a kind person and then become one. Obama is still trying to comprehend himself and America is paying for it. Asking people to be kind when you do not practice it yourself is not only acting in bad faith, you are acting like a fraud of the first order.

It was an official IRS agent that called the Conservatives ‘assholes’ and went after a wing of the Republican party, Mr. President. Hate is a two way street and unfortunately, Democrats and Republicans are passing one another all the time. If you would have addressed both parties for their annimosity toward one another you may have seemed more Presidential. But, instead you chose to be partisan and an example of what is so wrong with our Government today.

Shameful.

Have your abortions. Have as many as you want. Defend the Mothers who carry it out. Whatever. Just stop complaining about how Selfish, Unkind, and Prejudice the World is. Be consistent. When you defend Self-centeredness and Prejudice acts, defend it for all people, not just Mothers.

If you defend a woman who plans a pregnancy and decides it is too flawed, ugly, and ignorant to see him/her/all take their first breath, defend their right to believe certain people are flawed, ugly, and ignorant and have no ounce of kindness to keep such thoughts to themselves. Defend that Bully.

If you defend the selfish act of not wanting to be responsible for another human being because they would be too burdensome, defend the right of all people who make a lot of money and decide that taking care of other people with the money they made would be too burdensome. Defend that Capitalist.

If you defend individuals who had an abortion because they are scornful
of beings with Down-Syndrome, defend the individuals who are scornful of Blacks, Hispanics, Gays, and Asians. There is no difference. Defend other people’s right to hate those who cannot change their physical or biological natures. Defend that Racist and Homophobe.

To sum up. Defend, Selfishness, Prejudice, and Unkindness for all people. Be consistant in your philosophy and beliefs. Defend the Bully, the Capitalist, the Racist and the Homophobe and NOT JUST MOTHERS HAVING ABORTIONS.

Socialism works, just with a different species. Ants and all collective insects are great socialists. Why? They have no reproductive freedom. Now, the goal of the Obama Administration, Democrats, Liberals, and Progressives is to make everyone an Ant through the horror called Obamacare.

Becoming collective is not in our nature so it must be forced upon us through lies, and distortion. A vote for a Democrat is a vote for an Ants Life – your wagons hitched to everyone else with no reproductive freedom and a Queen Bee that golfs all the time, goes on comedy shows to promote a hideous program, while the American people suffer.

Good going Liberals and Democrats. You have managed to turn America into an Ant Hill with no individuality, authenticity, or originality all in the name of an ideology that takes away reproductive freedom and turns humans into Humants.

Collective Marxist Socialism works for those who have no desire for self-exploration, self-awareness, or self-sufficiency. Does this mean the philosophy that worships an ants life should be forced upon us all. There are still people in America with the courage and desire to explore life on purpose. They do not seek an Ants experience. They seek a human experience.

Socialism works for ants, but does this mean we humans must become ants to make socialism work for us? Must we change our nature, our biological make-up to fit into a Collectivist colony? Must we continue to vote for Progressive Liberal Democrats who desire the human being give up individualism and reproductive freedom in order to explore the life of unoriginal banality?

So if an ants life is what you desire, keep voting for the Democrats. If not and you want to explore a life lived deliberately – I suggest perhaps a vote for an individual who believes in Individual Sovereignty and Reproductive Freedom.  

And, before you go thinking abortion is an example of reproductive freedom it is not. It is an atrocity. An act created by the human mind in order to live without self-awareness, self-accountability, self-respect, and self-belief.

Reproductive freedom means we have the choice of creating individual beings – not abolishing life or ripping it to shreds. Destroying life is called murder. So you see, the Democrats have taken the one thing that separates human beings from collective insects and distorted it in order to turn human beings into ants. A vote for a Democrat is a vote for inauthenticity. Welcome to your ant hill.

Liberal Progressivism can be defined as a political ideology that unites the left-leaning concept of government intervention with individual liberty. If that sounds ironic, it is. In other words, People are free to do what they want as long as their government can control their behavior and manage their life according to Liberal Progressive ideaology.

Phychic Fair

Having a private conversation? Big Government knows. It should be well accepted by now that politicians know how to live your life better than you. Individuals are incompetent fools with no sense of self-comprehension and that is why government officials should be in charge of people’s personal experiences, medical care, self-esteem, and finances. 

We cannot have people spending their own hard earned money on personal things that might make them individually happy. Selfishness does not belong in a Liberal Progressive run society unless you are a Politician, Government official or Entertainer then it is do as I say, not…
