a fit over Fire & Fury

Thank you Michael Wolff! You’ve given us a classic in the genre of  ‘What’s good for the goose…’ ; not a battle of the sexes but showman to showman. Bravo!  fire-and-fury-wolff

As you can see, BILLIONS of us–more than have read any other book in the history of words <or glyphs> from ALL corners of this planet (and probably several other orbs) are not only reading, but reveling in #FireandFury. Lies and hyperbole are all the rage at the fact-free WhiteHouse, so how can #Fake45 and crew complain about anything Mr. Wolff writes?  🤡  Continue reading

… and justice for ALL ?

Hey #FAKE45, don’t threaten us with disrespecting the flag. Every day you disrespect “We the People“– Americans.  If not blacks, the #NFL, women, the disabled, Latinos, Hispanics, now it’s #PuertoRicans who face it, you did not realize WERE Americans.  You embarrass us and yourself every day. But, since it’s my compassionate side that I truly want to cultivate, despite my propensity to respond just as #Nasty and insultingly as you,  I offer a diagnosis instead of another insult.  It may sound harsh, but the truth is you are sick.

Yep, I honestly believe you are sociopathic, meaning you suffer from Antisocial Personality Disorder.  Only a professional can say for sure, but many of us see the symptoms:  disregard for the feelings of others, lack of remorse or shame, manipulative, extremely egocentric, and often lies in order to achieve one’s goals. Sound familiar?  Now, add to this the strong possibility of dementia. Dementia covers a large category of symptoms that can include Alzheimer’s, but also other brain trauma or disease.  Those symptoms are recognized by increasing disrespectful and aggressive behaviors. See a pattern? 

It’s no joke when many of us tweet begging the professionals to speak up and for Congress to consider the #25th Amendment— which provides for removal of the President in case of incapacitation. We could also call it the Captain Queeg clause  (Look up The Caine Mutiny.)

Peeps, when it comes to Trump, I have tweeted the answer to all your questions of “why is he so…”   He’s a demented sociopath.  It’s not a horrible insult,  I believe it’s true.  It is way beyond #SAD that a madman holds the nuclear codes and is ruining our beautiful America (in many ways.)  So, it’s not the players who #TakeAKnee  or #Nasty women (like me) who are denigrating this Country. It is YOU, Trump!  And, also our Congress who must open their eyes and See Clearly that it’s time to remove him. Otherwise, we may not have a nation left to defend.  Get busy!  You too, #Mueller!

Good Karma?

On the first day, actually in the first hour, of Anthony Scaramucci’s new gig as #Fake45’s White House Communications Director, he claimed Trump has “really good karma.” EnsoOMWhat?
The former hedge fund manager is not Seeing Clearly* how karma works. 🤑 CNN’s lovable Jake Tapper wasn’t much clearer claiming karma “takes place in the next life.”

It’s trendy thinking that yoga means physical postures and karma is only tied to an afterlife, but actually neither is true.  Yoga refers to practice, usually a spiritual practice, and karma is cause and effect (which can ripen immediately or much later.) Either way Trump is FAR from generating “good karma.”

Nothing limits karmic consequences to a future life…  in fact, “extreme thoughts of malice” often ripen quickly (in this lifetime.) We can “purify” (clear karma) or continue on mindlessly, uncontrollably repeating our patterns (sound like our fearless leader?)  While “negative” actions can result in a miserable future life, in Buddhist thinking it’s also possible to prevent future rebirths through beneficial actions in this life. Who knew karma was so complicated, Moochie!

As you can see, it’s basically impossible for me to write about Trump without generating angst, anger and karmic consequence for myself.  It’s why I stopped blogging about him. I’m convinced the candidate and and his campaign colluded in Russian espionage to get into the White House and don’t understand why the “MSM” is so willing to accept that he won legitimately. Let #Mueller or a totally independent, bipartisan commission decide that.

Why am I and others so suspicious of Trump’s Russian connections? 1) there are an INCREDIBLE number of ties and links (to use Trump lingo) so many that a Buddhist might call it “auspicious” (but that exalted term is reserved for “good karma” not dirty tricks. ) 2) follow the money. Financial trails are quite revealing. In this case, after the Donald had stiffed all the U.S. banks (call that “bad karma”), he found friendlier funding sources through Deutsche Bank, Chinese and Russian banks and maybe some in Cypress.

And, it’s impossible to search Trump topics without encountering nefarious web sites. Russian and Ukranian hackers and bots have created so many #FakeNews sites, that unless you are a savvy web user, you can easily get sucked into scam sites and stories. I’ve noticed that if I click on some of these dubious links I get virus warnings (from my non-Russian security software) and often my VOIP (internet-based) phone rings! This happens on my desktop PC. I don’t know what the karmic consequences are of following such links on a phone or tablet.  I try not to.

Bottom line: the difference between real news and #FakeNews is not what Donald Trump thinks; it’s actual, factual information on established news sites not made-up stories created by hackers. When reporters or journalists use the term “sourced” part of the sourcing is knowing who you are speaking to (okay, “to whom”– Trumpism is wearing down my standards.)

I could go on and on, but let me close where we began, with karma.  When asked about the Chinese military torturing and killing Tibetan monks, His Holiness the Dalai Lama has commented:  “No I don’t hate Chinese people for the terrible human rights violations their government engages in. But, I do feel compassion for the future suffering they are creating for themselves.” That answer, my friends, is good karma.
