The sad thing about this post is it’s basically the same post we used for when the Parkland shooting happened.  We don’t want templates like this in our country and it will continue as long as assault rifles are in the hands of these killers.  Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims and their families.

A SAD DAY in AMERICA

We have NOTHING else to report except God Bless the victims and their families.

Twitter —- #MPRaccoon went Viral

We happen to be watching the Weather Channel yesterday and they played a video of a baby raccoon that had climbed up the UBS Building in St. Paul Minneapolis.  The raccoon was up very high and climbing, and then stopped about four stories from the top to rest on a window ledge.  There are all kinds of pictures and some experts said that raccoons have no problem climbing building with an exterior of rough stone like the UBS Building.  This got our interest because the raccoon was so high up and just a little guy.

Then last night around midnight (PST) we were on Twitter and noticed #MPRaccoon under the “Trending” box and clicked on it.  It seems that people all over this great planet we following and tweeting about the raccoon.  All were concerned about the raccoon’s safety and what was the latest news.  We happen to arrive when it was announced that there were people on top of the building attempting to coax the raccoon to the top so they could capture it and give it food and water.  The raccoon was moving up and down the side of the building and at about 4:30 AM PST the guys on the roof managed to capture the raccoon.

We would guess there were about 1,500 + tweets an hour for a good four hours and people we concerned and completely focused on a safe ending.  There were people from just about every country on this planet.  Some said they saw what was going on and could not get back to sleep or some said they were getting up for work and had to get the latest news.  It was like the world came together totally focused on the baby raccoon’s safety.  We were in constant “tweet” mode with everyone.  It was awesome sharing and chatting.  Thanks @Twitter !

Just when the raccoon got to the roof and was saved by those guys we tuned in to @CNN “Early Start” and Dave Briggs said that in a few minutes they would be reporting on the “viral” baby raccoon.  Great timing on Dave’s part and Dave would probably be famous for scooping all the other news networks with this story.  So we waited, 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 20 minutes, and 30 minutes and nothing!  Dave did the “tease” and then DID NOT do the story.  Needless to say we were pissed and we Tweeted that @davebriggstv should be boycotted along with @CNN because they did  not run the story that hundreds of thousands of people were waiting for.  This is why Trump calls @CNN “Fake News” we guess.  They say one thing and do not follow through.  So Dave went from “famous” to “dirt bag” in just a few minutes.  It seems Dave got hooked on Trump’s plane landing and dumped the raccoon story.  Nobody at that time of the morning cared about watching a 747’s land, smoke the tires, and taxi.  They wanted the raccoon story.  Dave my man, your next job with @CNN will be the on the floating ice cap reporting on how the seals are holding up with global warming and even though the temperature is 50 below zero the penguins’ seem healthy.  Stay warm dude!

So the latest today is the raccoon was feed and checked out and released back into the woods.  There tweets still going but overall everyone is happy to see it was an awesome ending. When the raccoon got to the roof it was like a weight was lifted and he was safe at last.  Let’s give a shout out to the U.B.S. folks on the roof that saved the raccoon.  We thought that U.B.S. should have built the raccoon a luxury house and provided food forever because they got all that free publicity, but at least the little guy is free to roam.

We would like to thank all the folks that hung in there last night and we believe that the positive energy coming from everyone had something to do with a great ending.

We have nothing else to report except we are going back to the “trending” #MPRaccoon to see if the raccoon folks are as happy as we are.  Thanks to all the new followers and existing followers for support our blog.  God Bless all of you.

Belief System – Dearly Beloved …..

Dearly beloved we are gathered here to watch the death of a once great nation, The United States of America.  Like the great Atlantis, negative energy seeped in and grew to appoint of destroying that great city.  The same negative energy has crept in to the Federal Government of the U.S.A. and has grown to create a cesspool of corruption.  When innocent children are being brutally murdered in their schools several times and the leaders do nothing to remedy this situation because of the corruption, we the people can stand-up and register to vote.  We the people can vote in November 2018 and get rid of scum filling the cesspool.

 In the mean time we are looking to our subscribers and anyone (Worldwide) who is reading this post to take spiritual action and heal our once great country by sending positive energy to eliminate the negative energy and replace it with the energy of God’s Love.  We have been in the middle of a circle healing and because the energy was so strong, had to move out of the middle of the circle.  With all of us creating this energy healing we can make a difference and we can send the positive energy everyday until the country is healed.  We are not asking for a full long meditation, we are asking when you have a few minutes of free time to take a few deep breaths and think “Dear God/Universe we are asking you to send positive energy to the Federal Government of the U.S.A. in Washington, DC. To remove the negative energy and replace it with your Love Energy, Amen.”

This is all we are asking.  When you’re driving to work and you get stuck in a traffic jam, right after your prayer to clear the traffic add the “Dear God….”, phrase.  When you’re holding your sick baby and wondering how you going to take care of your baby since you don’t have health-care, you pray to God for the answer please add to the end of your prayer the “Dear God….”, phrase.  When you wake up in the morning and nature calls and your sitting on your throne praying to God that you don’t get laid off from your job, please add the “Dear God….”, phrase. (Because you’re on your throne you can feel presidential)  If you’re a young teen guy and your in class praying that that cute girl sitting next to you will go out with you this coming weekend, please add to your prayer the “Dear God….”, phrase.  If your in England enjoying some tea and crumpets and thanking God for this fine snack, please add the “Dear God….”, phrase to the end of your prayer.  If your is Sweden on your way to the hospital and thanking God for the free health-care all your citizens of your country enjoy, please add the “Dear God….”, phrase to the end of your prayer.  If your in Italy and your thanking God that you Mother took two days of her valuable time to make fresh pasta for your lunch today please add the “Dear God….”, phrase to the end of your prayer. (Send us some of that pasta please).  If your in a car with your newly sixteen year old child teaching them to drive and your thanking God that your alive after they decided smash the accelerator to the floor to see what kind of power the station wagon has, please add the “Dear God….”, phrase to the end of your prayer.  If your on the South Side of Chicago and managed to dodge several bullets during a gang fight and your thanking God that you survived, please add the “Dear God….”, phrase to the end of your prayer.  If you are on a jet zooming across the country and your are praying to God that the young tot behind you will get tired quickly and stop kicking the back of your seat, please add the “Dear God….”, phrase to the end of your prayer.  If you’re golfing and you have just hit the greatest drive of you life and your praying to God that you will hit the next shot on the green close to the hole, please add the “Dear God….”, phrase to the end of your prayer. (Remember to not take a big divot because the blades of grass might contain souls in training)  If you’re a #1 Grandpa and your walking down the sidewalk holding the hand of your grandchild who you love beyond words and thanking God for this moment in your life, please add the “Dear God….”, phrase to your prayer.  If you are at a stop light and you are praying to God for all green lights from here on please add the “Dear God….”, phrase to the end of your prayer.(Might now get greens, but no guarantee)

Of course if you have more time than a few seconds then please join us in a full length mediation (30-60 minutes) by taking three deep breaths and then dedicating the meditation by starting with the “Dear God….”, phrase and then with a quiet mind enjoy the meditation.  Know that any time you set aside to say the phrase will speak volumes to God and The Universe and multiply the effect by the shear numbers of people saying the phrase.

We are dedicating this post to our dad who was a medic in WWII and was captured at the Battle of Bastogne because he stayed behind to attend to the wounded.  Then was transferred to a prison camp where if was assign to the make-shift hospital where without any medications took acre of the incoming injured as best he could.  When Patton liberated the camp he came home a proud American and worked all his life to help others and became a major voice in the “Prisoners of War” movement, the American Legion, and helped many people who needed jobs, get jobs.  My dad was a “PATRIOT” and even though he has passed, we are proud to be his son and we loved our dad for everything he accomplished for humanity.

We have nothing to add except to tell you that our dad back in 1969 had the foresight to tell us to stay in the computer field and some day we would have access to the entire world and when we have that access, to help as many people as we can.

God Bless all our subscribers and all that read this post.  We can change the world peacefully and we are going to do it.  Namaste

Sad Day in Houston Texas and All of the USA

The sad thing about this post is it’s basically the same post we used for when the Parkland shooting happened.  We don’t want templates like this in our country and it will continue as long as assault rifles are in the hands of these killers of our children.  Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims and their families.

A SAD DAY in AMERICA

We have NOTHING else to report.

March For Our Lives – The Beginning

Well folks we must tell you that we have not been this inspired in a vary long time.  We have been meditating for months for some sort of solution to all the gun killings in this country and today our intentions have been answered.  Our last post noted how much power you can have when you work as a group and the Parkland Students formulated an idea, gave it tons of energy, and created  a revolution that started today with a world wide march.  These students are not messing around and they “get it” and have “BS detectors”.  They know the vote matters and they know the NRA controls 99.999% of the GOP by giving them money for campaigns.  It’s all on-line and easily found.  The Students are going to call out these guys / gals and invite them to a town hall meeting.  If they refuse, invite the opponent.

We sat and watched all the speakers and saw and we were so proud of all these students we were in tears most of the time.  A million people turned up in Washington DC and millions all around the world.  Where was the POTUS?  Where else golfing in FL just a few miles from Parkland and of course, silent.  This is what the students are going to change.  Marco Rubio was called out today for his hypocrisy on gun control and should probably be updating his resume for the next time he runs.  Marco received 3.3 million from the NRA.  Wait till they check John McCain 7.7 million, Richard Burr 6.9 Million just to name a few.  On the right side bar under “search” enter “NRA” and you will see a list of the top 10 senate and congress persons that received money from the NRA. We posted this November 11, 2017 and March, 2018.

Here is a link for “MARCHFOROURLIVES” Mission Statement.  (Click on it)

We plan to be “living” on this site and promoting this site here.  We are a baby boomer and marched against the Viet Nam War. In Chicago watched the cops beat the crap out of our friends as we were forced to break up the march.  Today they wouldn’t dare that today, but we bet the old guys were thinking about it.  So Baby Boomer’s of America lets help these students save our grand-children.  Just like them we can regenerate that energy we had back then and add it to the student energy and get the change done.

To all out there in cyber-land every night when you go to sleep send out the intent for the Students to be successful and picture an America & world without guns that kill thousands every year.  Check out our posts on meditation and with enough of us sending energy the change will be quick.

We remember where we were when JFK was shot and now we remember where we were when the MARCH FOR OUR LIVES event took place.

We have nothing to report right now, but will be sending updates often.

Sad Day in Southerland Springs, Texas and the United States of America

My fellow Americans once again we have coward shooting at a church in Southerland Springs, Texas with 20+ dead including women and children. The shooter is dead after a short chase. Many details are still unclear.  The daughter of the pastor is reported to be one of the victims.

Our prayers and with all the victims involved in this tragic event.

We have nothing to add at this time but will be following events on CNN.

Folks, we can only say that until strong gun control is in place these type of incidents will continue and its up to us to get something done.  The WH, Congress, and Senate have their heads up their butts because the NRA donates big time to the GOP.  They hem haw around for a few days, then NOTHING gets done.  Call your representatives and DEMAND GUN CONTROL NOW!

Four Gun Control Laws rejected by the Senate

Filed under: General Nothing — alaboutnothing @ 9:12 pm
Tags: , , , , , ,

2nd-nraFour gun control laws were presented to the Senate on Monday and all four were “shot” down by the Republicans.  The Democrats say “It’s because the Republicans want to sell guns to ISIS.”  No surprise there, but I have not seen any response on CNN by the Republican folks about ISIS guns.

Based on what has been reported and what we have seen in the news, most of the Republicans get large donations from the NRA for campaign funds.  It seems like to us the Republicans have been anti-gun control for years anyway, so another no surprise on the gun law block.

Today the Democrats are staging a “sit-in” in congress and we applaud the Democrats for standing up and attempting to get something down about guns instead of sitting back and hoping the issue will go away.  (This s the Republican way of dealing with gun issues)

This probably will be discussed for months and taking time away form Congress and the Senate to address other issues.

Why don’t we just repeal the 2nd Amendment?  It was written 200+ years ago when it seemed needed, but now, we don’t see why it’s needed.

Here is what the 2nd Amendment says:

Passed by Congress September 25, 1789. Ratified December 15, 1791. The first 10 amendments form the Bill of Rights.  The 2nd Amendment is as follows: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Because all the states are now in place “a well regulated Militia does not need to tend to the security of a free state.”  As far as we know all the states are free these days.

“The right of the people to keep and bear arms” is no longer needed so let’s get rid of this amendment and fee up the entire BS” going back and forth about gun control between the politicians.

Let’s let the people of the United States of America decide.  There are 318 million people in the US and about 200 million are voters.  About 3% are blocking the gun control laws and we want a majority vote to decide.  There are two ways to repeal an amendment:

The United States Constitution is unusually difficult to amend.  As spelled out in Article V, the Constitution can be amended in one of two basic ways.

First, amendment can take place by a vote of two-thirds of both the House of Representatives and the Senate followed by a ratification of three-fourths of the various state legislatures or conventions in three-fourths of the states (ratification by thirty-eight states would be required to ratify an amendment today).  This first method of amendment is the only one used to date, and in all but the case of the 21st Amendment, state ratification took place in legislatures rather than state conventions.

Second, the Constitution might be amended by a Convention called for this purpose by two-thirds of the state legislatures, if the Convention’s proposed amendments are later ratified by three-fourths of the state legislatures (or conventions in three-fourths of the states).

We go with the “Second” choice mainly because the “First” depends on Congress and the Senate and they are why we are proposing to repeal the 2nd Amendment by the people of the United Sates.  About the only way to use the 1st choice is to vote for and elect all the Democratic candidates for Congress and the Senate.  When there are a three-fourths + majority then a vote can take place.  We want gun control now so we need to get going on the appeal.  Later down the line if we can agree on a new 2nd Amendment that reflects circumstances `that exist now, we can re-instate a “new” 2nd Amendment.

We have nothing to add right now, but we will keep on top of these gun control events and report them as we see fit.  (Sam).
