Staying Positive

1

Sometimes forces in the world can be overwhelming. We find ourselves second guessing ourselves, doubting our abilities and losing faith in our beliefs. In those trying moments, it is important to remain positive, and to stay positive.

Here’s a few things you can do to help stay positive.

1. MEDITATION

Meditate for 10-15 minutes

Meditation is amazing. It helps to create positive energy in your world, and teaches you how to reinforce the balance you’ve had in your life. 10-15 minutes of meditation a day can have lasting effects on your self-esteem and spirituality.

2. RUNNING

Run 3 times a week

Running helps the mind release endorphins that help to counter stress. Going for a run a few times a week is a great way to reinforce positivity, and is also very healthy for the body.

3. SMILE

Smile!

Smile more. It seems simple, because it is simple. Regardless of the circumstances, smile. It takes very little effort to smile, and the benefit is instant gratification.

4. BE KIND

Be kind

Being kind is a great way to reinforce positive vibes in your life. Giving to the needy, volunteering at a shelter or donating clothes to Goodwill are all great ways to be kind. Even holding the door open for someone, as a courtesy, will go a long way.

5. THINK POSITIVE

Think positive

Think positive, and put a barrier around your negative thoughts. When you find yourself feeling helpless, train your mind to think about positive places, positive people, and overall positive things. Your mind has a lot of information, and not all of it is bad. Pull out the good stuff, and keep doing it.

6. GET PROPER AMOUNT OF SLEEP

Get 7 to 8 hours of sleeo

Getting the proper amount of sleep can be very important. Some people find themselves overworked, and they eventually burn out. Reevaluate your sleep schedule, and make sure that you get enough daily sleep. After a few days, you’ll find yourself much more positive.

7. TAKE A BREAK FROM SOCIAL MEDIA

Take a break and do something else.

It is easy to get swallowed into to social media, and sometimes that can have very negative effects. Take a break. Put down your cellphone, close your laptop and go for a walk. Go to bookstore and check out some new novels. Go try a new entree at your favorite restaurant. There are countless things to do, and social media isn’t going anywhere.

It Is Time To End Gun Violence In The USA

0

The United States of America has a problem, and the problem is gun violence. Decades of senseless gun deaths now plague The United States, and almost no one has done anything about in. In Congress, representatives try to hold logical and sensible debates and discussions about the topic, but to no avail. They fall short, because they fail to capitalize on what the second amendment, our right to bear arms, truly means.

The Second Amendment is now a constitutional law with too many interpretations. The amendment reads, “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”. Within the fine-print of the law, it clearly states that those, and only those in support of the amendment, may carry and utilize a firearm. Though this law was written over a century ago, in today’s world it has been manipulated in its interpretation to further boast arms and weapons sales. Today, across the United States, any American now has the legal right to walk into a store and purchase how many firearms and ammunition they so please. To maintain their status to do so, they have to be registered within their state, and not do anything illegal enough for them to lose their rights to arm themselves. While some states make registration hard (with tough background checks and other procedures), some states make it easy enough to walk into a store without being registered, and registering right there on the spot.

So while purchasing weapons in every American’s now inherited right, is it actually legal? Clearly, the states and municipalities ultimately enforce the laws, but the second amendment clearly states that weapon bearers are for the military, and any supporting militia. Supporting militias include security guards, police officers, troopers, and of course, the National Guard. That being said, why is it so easy for Americans to purchase firearms? It is because it is a great business for the United States.

Recent statistics show that the number of gun deaths has increased over a 5 year period.

In 2017 it is reported that 39,773 died as the result of gun violence. The pattern did not change for the year 2018, and very notables persons have died this year to gun violence. One of those people were Nipsey Hussle, a Los Angeles based hip-hop artist who died of an apparent homicide March 31st, 2019 as the result of gun violence. Another person was shot and killed that same day. The son of one of Philadelphia’s high ranking police officers found out that Sunday that his child was killed as a result of gun violence.

So when, and where will this senseless violence end? Will the people’s representative begin to enforce the second amendment as it should be, or will they continue to allow every countryman and woman bear weapons to their heart’s content? Our culture now embraces gun violence, in music, television and radio. It is all around us, and businesses make billions from it every year. The Military Industrial Complex also makes billions every year off of weapons sales. It is rich within our society, and enforcing the second amendment as it should be, limiting firearms to only the military and supported militias, is the only way to end this senseless gun violence.

I am afraid there may be no other way, and it must happen. So many lives have been taken, and so many more will go because of senseless gun violence.

The FBI Investigation is Over

0

Earlier in the week, The FBI submitted their investigation of Donald Trump and his associates. The investigation has been the talking point, and primary focus of many news agencies.

President Trump, despite several of his colleagues and campaign associates facing legal troubles, continues to call the overall investigation a witch hunt.

Now, news agencies and The American People, and President Trump, await the release of information in Robert Mueller’s investigative actions against the President.

What will throttle, or should I say, revitalize America’s economy? What modern achievement, which in mass use could benefit people in variances of society, and grant us a reemerging economy? What new idea or creation will be what filters the massive debt that The USA holds?

Will there ever be such an idea?

I am no economist, so it would be difficult for me to give you the answers to my question. I, myself question how the United States of America will surpass the debt that it holds. It almost stands at 23 Trillion Dollars. When I was young, 1 trillion wasn’t a number that I would imagine to be our nation’s debt. Then again, who would I have been for it to have mattered?

No one, basically.

But I am looking at it now, as I have before, as millions of people have, this overwhelming debt that The USA now holds. We live in the era of technological advances, and we coexist with some of the world’s greatest minds. Their creations though, their magnificent gifts to the world fails to solve America’s debt. Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook will not be the business to revitalize America’s economy.

The obvious Military Industrial Complex fuels The President’s current bid for a wall along the southern border. The President foolishly failed to amass enough money to complete the wall, forcing America to withstand a government shutdown while in conjunction activating the distress factors of declaring a National Emergency for the unguarded portions of the southern border.

And, a Space Force.

Will The United States of America ever try to remove their debts?

If not, why not start making some things free?

The American Dream is not dead, Mr. President. It is alive, and We, The People, are aware.

How Strong is America’s Defense? #StateOfEmergency

0

The obvious answer is very strong. Hundreds of billions of dollars is now spent annually on America’s Defense. The United States Army is as strong as ever, and every other branch appears to exist without much flaw. As a matter of fact, one can conduct a bit of research and decipher that often times, too much is spent on the Department of Defense. Whirlwind headlines of Navy coffee mugs costing thousands of dollars can be a prime example of a Nation’s military with a budget that appears to have no end.

So my question is, with a military spread all over the entire world and allies spanning every continent, why has The President declared a State of Emergency?

The U.S. Government was recently Shut down for over 31 days, the longest recorded government shutdown in recorded history. With a military so strong, in a robust and prosperous Capitalist society, a shutdown is now the tail end to what appears to be a declaration of an emerging crisis.

In recent month’s time, there were reports of an invasion along the southern border, an actual cry from the President which has led him to orchestrate a campaign of border defense. His campaign includes most importantly, a 2000 mile long border wall between The U.S. and Mexico. Without rehashing the terrible war of words President Trump has had with others over this wall, it is easy to understand that he was incapable of acquiring the funds necessary to complete his campaign promise of building a massive border wall.

This, only days after a month long Government Shutdown, and after only acquiring 1 billion dollars of the 30+ or so billion dollars needed for his project, The President has now issued a State of Emergency.

How long does this remain in effect? Who does it effect? Are we as weak as he perceives? What is to come?

Perhaps the most important question may be, are we going to be invaded?

What a world of conspiracy. This is no Russian folk tale.

The Resignation of General James Norman Mattis, Secretary of Defense.

0

In a powerful display of opposition to President Trump announcing a complete withdrawal of troops from Syria, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis submitted his letter of resignation. The letter, pictured below, highlights many facets that General Mattis enjoyed while Secretary of Defense, but the letter also plainly States to the President that he does not agree with the decision to withdraw troops from Syria, arguing that the move abandons allies on the battlefield.

Despite the resignation of General Mattis, and what appears to be a bipartisan pushback from both Republicans and Democrats, President Trump remains resilient in his decision to withdraw troops, explaining to the American People that ISIS has been defeated, and that he has been more successful than any President in modern history in defeating ISIS.

Several officials and News outlets have reported that the decision to withdraw troops was not advised by Senior military officials or The Pentagon, and that this is move done largely in part by Donald Trump.

Again, despite pushback from every angle, Trump remains resilient in downsizing the battlefields overseas, with rumors now floating the agenda that The President also intends to withdraw as many as 9,000 troops from Afghanistan as early as January.

General Mattis served four decades in The United States Marine Corps. He ends his career on a high note, putting countrymen and his allies before self. He will officially depart Trump’s Administration February 2019.
