2018 WISH LIST

1)  I wish Trump wasn’t our president.

However, I would not want Hillary Clinton for president either.

2) I wish Republicans would not have total control of our three branches of government.

However, I would not want Democrats to have that control either.

3) I wish Congress and the U.S. Supreme Court would have term limits as the president does.

4) I wish both political parties would “repeal” their rule that does not allow Independents to  vote In primaries. This is un-democratic.

5) I wish Democrats would quit choosing candidates from “old guard” politicians.  They lost in 2016 for this very reason. Why not choose someone who is honest and sincere?

6) I wish all politicians would start listening to the voter rather than the corporations who fund their campaigns and tell them what laws to pass.

7)  I wish there would be laws against lobbyists and members of congress from making “back-room” deals.

8)  I wish MSM would “give us a break” from the 24/7 “reports” of Trump’s latest tweets or comments.  We all know how quick he is with his thoughtless remarks. If we really want to read them, we can go to his website ourselves. We don’t need MSM.

9)  I wish people would show their “humanity” rather than their “anger”.

10) I wish everyone health, happiness and a better New Year.

 

The End

 

P.S. Having problems with WP on this one.

WHAT???

I have been having many problems with WordPress.  Can’t log in because won’t accept the only password I have used since starting this site. Even when I change the password, they still won’t accept because either the “user name” or the “password” is incorrect. I had to sign in with email address (even though it’  now out in cyberspace) just to get into my WordPress site.

Then, I get this:

Renew politicsbahhumbug.me

What is going on with WordPress???

WordPress does not have way to publish items on my page.

I read many articles I would like to forward to my WordPress site.  However, forwarding to  WordPress is not available on most of these articles.  So, I will just do it manually.

There is a good article on”The Hill” site today (12/30/17.  The Title is “A Year later, an investigation in search of a crime.”

 

 

WRITING IS HAPPINESS

For me, writing is what “makes my day”.  It is a part of me that will never be completely finished.

Each time I write an article my thoughts expand, my mind concentrates and I feel “free” to share my most intimate thoughts with someone.  As one writer put it, “writing to me is the same as the ability to walk, talk, and think.” It gives the reader “bits of my soul, my heart, my mind and my spirit”.  It is a consummate part of me.

This world is full of any subject one can write about.  There is so much more information out there to research and, in doing so, I learn more about the world.  The nightly news gives us a “snapshot” of what is going on in the world at the moment.   To fully understand why it is happening, one must delve into more of the subject ourselves.

History gives us many lessons as to the outcome of the actions taken today that will affect the future.  Learning of countries where millions are starving puts us to action to get involved in helping to feed them. Learning millions are being murdered by their own government gets us involved to speak out against dictators and wars and, to help those who survive.  We are all capable of helping any of them if we open our hearts to the pain and suffering in this world.  It is easy to watch the news and then forget about it because we don’t have to deal with those life and death situations. However, there are people right here in America who need help  providing a home for their families, feeding them, getting them medical help, transportation, etc. so, the need is also here.  It’s up to each of us to do what we can to help humankind.

I will not be writing for a while as life has given me a health problem that needs attention.  God willing, it won’t be too long before I can get back to the pleasure of writing once again.

“NIGHT OWL”

I am “coming out of the closet” to reveal a much misunderstood genetic trait.

It’s time for all “night owls” to do the same.  We live in a world where our biological clock is not in sync with the rest of society and, we need all the support we can get.

As far back as I can remember, I always wondered why I was different.  Why I couldn’t go to sleep when the rest of the family did.  Oh, I would go to bed but not to sleep.  As a child, when the rest of the household was sound asleep, I was wide awake, basking in the stillness of the night.  This was MY time, when no one could interrupt my thoughts and my mind could take flight into the dreams of the future.

The abruptness of reality returned all too soon as each of my three siblings took turns trying to wake me as they left for the school day.  I would hear the first call, return to sleep and, only when I knew it was the last call would I get up.  It’s amazing, how, in a state of semi-consciousness, I managed to get myself dressed and to school on time.

I have tried all kinds of well meaning advice from friends to change this nocturnal schedule.   “Early to bed – Early to Rise” did not make me healthy, wealthy or wise.  It made me tired!

Although many years have since passed when I had no choice but to do with less sleep (marriage, children and work), I am still on the same biological clock and, still out of sync with the rest of society.  The big difference now is I don’t have to get up to take care of anyone.  I can sleep as late as I want.  Although my friends and family are accepting, I know they don’t fully understand.

Nothing can change my “inner clock”.  It is set on “permanent” and does not have an alarm that goes off just because I have to get up early.  It is part of my total makeup.  I cannot change this genetic trait any more than a person could change brown eyes to blue by wishing it so.

There is  a “medical” term for this.  It is called “circadian rhythm ”.   It explains this as an inability to fall asleep at a desired, “conventional” clock time and awaken at a “socially acceptable” morning time.

‘When allowed to choose their preferred sleep schedule”, people exhibit sleep of normal quality and duration for their age and maintain a stable but delayed “relationship of entertainment” to the 24 hour, sleep-wake patterns.  The “circadian clock” is not in phase with, and cannot be “entrained” to, the 24 hour light-dark cycle.

BACK TO THE 1800’s

America has regressed to the 1800’s and early 1900’s. The Edwardian Era of Britain.  At that time the “Aristocracy” (wealthy families with Manor houses and vast estates) determined the fate of all other citizens of Britain.  Since only land owners could vote, this entitled the aristocracy to sit in the House of Lords (Britain’s upper house of government) and veto any law they didn’t like.  Powerful families ran the country from these estates.  They would invite the “power brokers” to their estates for the week-end to “lobby” them on what laws to pass.  Does this sound familiar?  It should!

Today wealthy families and corporations determine the fate of the citizens of the United States.  Especially since the United States Supreme Court has “entitled” them the right to spend as much money as they want to “buy elections”.  These wealthy families and corporations lobby the power brokers (members of congress) with invites to their “Manor Houses” and all paid expensive trips to any country they want to vacation in.  We have gone back to the time of the “Aristocracy” when the land owners controlled Britain!  This same control today by wealthy families and corporations is not only of the citizen of the United States.  It is the control of the presidency, congress and all federal, state and local elections.  Money buys votes!   The money spent on ads lying about the opposition can determine the outcome of any election.  Remember the “Swift Boat” Veterans untrue political ads about John Kerry in 2004?

How are “We The People” going to get our country back from these 2015 United States “Aristocrats”??

 

Recommended Posts on Reader – BahHumbug!

I just renewed my account and am back to WordPress.  I haven’t posted for a couple months and have not read the “Reader” either.

When I clicked on the Reader today, to my dismay, I found as many “Recommended Posts”  as there are of posts I follow.  I am so disgusted!  They are endless and no way to get rid of them.  Why am I paying for my posts when WP advertises other posts on the Reader?  Shame on WorldPress!

 

 

See Them Run
