New Year, New Attitude.
Any dog can be feared…
The more you try to be the PERFECT parent, the more your child will believe they have to be the PERFECT child to you. The anxiety can destroy the child’s capacity to be happy, to have fun, to enjoy any moment …. to the point the child cannot believe you love them unless they are perfect.
I support the right for every American to have at least one gun; and I support having the right to self defense against police; cops are no different than the citizens they claim to serve and protect. Actually, they are. They are public servants, allegedly, here to protect the people from harm and wrong. They are supposed to be the peace keepers, the ones you call in times of crisis; safety and the ‘good guys’. In addition, they should be held to higher punitive standards.
Yet in America even when the first “Police/Sheriff” squad was founded it was not founded based on those principles…at least not for equally. After slavery ‘ended’ in the South police, more or less, became the new ‘title’ for what previously was known as the ‘overseer’. Meaning, keeping Blacks oppressed and whites ‘safe’. In the Northern parts of America Police mainly focused on petty crimes…

Environmental groups in Vancouver, Wash. are rallying for the rapid development of a $1.3 billion real estate project along the Columbia River. We know, we know: Why would environmentalists want to see the bank of a river plastered with 32 acres of shops, office buildings, and apartment towers? To block something even worse: oil.
Here’s the scoop: The development, called Waterfront, would sit two miles west of the proposed terminal. Oil trains would pass within a few hundred feet of the project’s towers. So, if there was ever a teensy mishap — a spill, or perchance a derailment? — public safety would be at risk. If Waterfront, which was approved back in November 2013, is built soon, it will make for a steep path to approval for the oil terminal.
That gigantic terminal would transfer North Dakota crude oil by rail cars to barges, on which trains would pass through Vancouver each day, carrying approximately 360,000…

I often question the logic in things,
The reality of nature.
From the outside looking in,
The realm is so small,
I can almost taste my destination,
Fluttering in my possession.
On the other side a tree,
And how being sane,
Isn’t just part of living,
But also a part of living insane.
We all know where sinners go,
But sin has apparently always been thee norm.
We all know of the profoundless attempts to reconstruct the world.
How our fate is seemingly out of boundaries,
Unto nations eager to rebel,
Motivated by greed and Hell.
Why waist a gifted moment,
On a regret that is not even rewarding?
Why anticipate an everlasting enduring love,
When humanity is nothing but CRUEL?
“A man of a few words,” he said. “I hope I am expressing my feelings to you through my silence.”
Silence and words: two contradictory words with similar effects. How so? Silence is saying nothing. It’s non vocal, but can express a lot of feelings, which are sometimes stronger than the feelings words can express.
Silence can express pain.
Silence can express suffering.
Silence can express satisfaction.
Silence can express gratitude.
Silence can express humbleness.
Silence can express wisdom.
To be silent can be the expression of many things, but how do we know what feelings the silence expresses? By looking at ones eyes, you can tell what they are trying to say silently. It is said that the eyes are the windows to ones’ soul, and it is true. The eyes have intricate movements and expressions that say more than a thousand words.
The expression of the eyes can…
