Totally Inspired Mind: Where Positive Minds Congregate
I was trying to put into words the term for when you do something just because it is right but not because it EASY or THE STATUS QUO. A fellow writer and blogger friend of mine called it “moral courage” the other day.
We are all connected on this big, water covered planet we call earth. There is only one of them, so if we mess it up or the people who inhabit it, we never have a chance to go back and fix it. Life on earth as we know it is a “one shot deal” so we better get it right the first time and quit living as though everything is expendable.
We have a throwaway society anymore and people and the apathy towards people in general has gone along with the trash we throw away. It shouldn’t be and I am not saying that all people are apathetic, because of course they are not. There are just many who could do far more than they do for others they meet in everyday life.
Once the water systems are polluted, what do we do?
Just these thoughts are good ones to ponder in terms of how we should be making sure there are no oil spills killing our fish and wildlife and ruining the water.
Human beings have a lot in common with the earth in that they are both mostly composed of water. Without it, all life ceases to be.
What about bombs and the warfare, chemical or otherwise? Since I was married to a rocket scientist and he was the master of logic and science; since we were married for fifteen years, I chose to take with me the best of what I learned and the best of our memories together. Why throw a bomb that will kill thousands of innocent women, children, and ruin the land around it, making it impossible to plant anything-just to wipe out that one “target”? It isn’t logical to me.
Why not find and train more people who speak the languages of the countries we are fighting right now, or at least have our military people in like Afghanistan and Syria?
Try something you haven’t tried before.
Success models are made up of prototypes that worked. Once you know the model, you can strive to create one that works as well or supersedes it.
How about our budget that the so-called great leaders in the United States of America have concocted?

There has not been any trace of anyone from the two Bush’s to Reagan who has ever tried to come up with a budget that would start paying off the debt already incurred. Obama keeps spending and China owns more of America. It’s like a dirty American secret that nobody wants to take accountability for.
Will our next president of the United States make sure the priorities are in the right places? I certainly hope so, but rather than seeing human beings who invented great leadership skills, I see Trump as an overgrown brat who tragically never grew up. I see Clinton with major trust issues going in the office, after breaching national securiy. Wish you did with a lot more than just sharing emails! People lost lives because of those emails and that cannot be overstated.
I haven’t sat through one debate becauase it is not one by true definition. A debate is where people are asked intelligent, hard-hitting questions and they answer them , and an intelligent fashion . Trump and Clinton are good at insulting each other and name calling and badgering. I had little tolerance for badgering in elementary school and I have absolutely zero tolerance for that kind of behavior now.
Is there some kind of moral conduct and we can demand that of our presidential candidates?
It’s almost as though you need a referee make in a boxing match.
‘ve never seen a time in our political history where we’ve needed in an actual referee like it’s a boxing match verses to great minds talking about what they would each do. We never had that in the election from the get-go
I am not sure what kind of actual good they can accomplish, since they are not showing the best of who they are when that is exactly what they should be doing!
This is idiocy and being that I was born and raised in The United States and never want to see the day when China owns America.
What is going on is a vicious cycle of stupidity, borrowing on China’s credit and we are looking the fool in the eyes of other countries.
Before I get on a this one topic alone, that infuriates me at the stupidity and complete lack of responsibility on the parts of all who work for the government for not prioritizing paying the debt of the USA.
I hope I see the day when a budget is created and adhered to. I hope I see the day when we have a new president who has one known social security number, and stands for things that benefit Americans instead of big businesses.
I hope I see the day when you can get a job in America without having to know Vietnamese or Spanish, when it is America you are trying to get the job and not Vietnam or Mexico.
I hope I see the day when people try to be more kind and tolerant of each other’s differences.
Movie makers, producers and directors put positive and empowering messages out there instead coming up with a crime show give goofballs and psychos ideas to blow things up and kill people in movie theaters. Values can and could dictate our society, if we all wanted that badly enough.
I hope I see the day when our president realizes that every action has a chain reaction be it a bomb, something that is not needed that tax payer’s end up paying for. China is buying more of America up every day as the imaginary credit card is used.
They print up so much “play money” that I don’t think they understand in the real world, for you and I and everyone else, we all have to pay our debts. Why isn’t the White House and those who write the checks accountable as we are?
Breaking laws to fit personal agendas doesn’t make me proud of the current leadership. Can’t we as Americans demand to see how the money is spent? They are working for the American people and are supposed to be our ambassadors.
What are your major concerns for our country? What would you like to see happen in the next year in America?
Please Mr. President Obama, well you’re still president- open your eyes, wake up and be accountable for what you spend regarding our country.
Students arming Syrian terrorist and creating Isis why don’t you look at all the veterans who have no homes?
What did you think of raising the cost of living index for all people who are disabled on SSI and SSDI?
Why don’t you see that every American in every state can live in dignity and peace and have all their Corporal needs met before you think of taking money we don’t have and giving it to other countries?
NOW is a good time to create and adhere to a workable budget, not just hype.
Start caring and acting responsibly and care about America being owned my Americans and how we take care of it now is the gift we will hand down to our children.
God our Father, Giver of life,
We entrust The United States of America to your loving care.
You are The Rock on which this nation was founded. You alone are the true source of our cherished rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Reclaim this land For Your Glory and dwell among Your people.
Send your spirit to touch the hearts of our nation’s leaders. Open their minds to the great worth of human life and the responsibilities that that accompany human freedom.
Remind your people that true happiness is rooted in seeking and doing Your will.
Through the intercession of Mary Immaculate, patroness of our land, grant us the courage to reject the culture of death.
Lead us into the New Millennium of life.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
This beautiful prayer comes from a wonderful prayer book of mine from the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington DC called Prayers for All Occasions.

They’re located at 400 Michigan Avenue, Ann.. Washington, DC 20017 – 1566.

The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Jefferson.
I have one of his books and found it from in an antique store years ago.
He wrote several books and was a very good writer. This one is in public domain and I found it on Google Books, the cold Google Play Books.
You can read some of his inaugural addresses on here and you can find them in the table of contents. I thought if I’m the only one on WordPress to write about him and to remember the day then so be it. If you’re in school learning history this is exceptional.
Always look on other Google Play Books or LibriVox audiobooks before you buy one! Chances are you can find them on one or the other for a greatly reduced price because it’s an ebook.
As you’ll see even though he lived in the 1700’s, the truth still resonates in his words today, even more so to me. I wish he was president today because he would have listened to the voice of the American people, who are in essence America. He would have adhered to the Constitution the United States of America I’m not taking prepaid vacations all over the world like the president we have today.
He helped shape Freedom as we know it today in the United States of America by being the author of the Declaration of Independence. He helped define Freedom as we know it, as well as all of the military people throughout the years who have made sacrifices and died for it.
I hope and pray our next leader does a better job than what’s in there now.

Here is a wonderful poem I like to think of as a visualization, because when I read it, I could picture what this depicts:
I hope you enjoy this as much as I did from the blog Mind Wonder Blog.

As I have been adding videos, categorizing old posts so none say “uncategorized” and the other laborious things involving keeping this up and running and working….I just got word that there were 61 new followers here.
I will say I am so pleased that I can give joy to so many people and that my readers think that what I write educates them, inspires them and shows them new ways of thinking. I changed the format of the site today. What do you think of the changes I made?
Until I put up the next post that I wrote yesterday at Starbucks, about 2000 words, I bid you all a wonderful evening. It is raining here in southern California.
Still looking for a place that I can afford.
I also contacted my attorney to get a meeting with the mayor of Los Angeles to so I can discuss issues like taking the CA Budget and increasing the allocated funds for the disabled community like myself about 50 million dollars. That would provide the voucher I desperately need now to afford a one bedroom place somewhere in Orange County now. I would be helping about 200,000 other disabled people who don’t have the fortitude or courage or persistence I do, if I am successful. Everything I have ever done in my life I have been success at.
When I accomplish something in life I picture me shooting a basketball over the top of the moon. I figure if I come in a little next to the top of the moon, I am still doing damn good. Things need to be changed in Orange County, and since Orange County doesn’t have a mayor but it has needs, I will begin there.
I will be writing a petition showing what will be done with the money that I am asking for, but let’s put it this way. I haven’t driven for nearly 15 years and have seen countless disabled people in wheel chairs who are homeless! One person like that is too many! I have seen a dozen on a regular basis and talked to them and heard their stories. It is TRAGIC and they are American Citizens who have civil rights and deserve to live in integrity with roofs over their heads, a place to sleep and a pillow under their heads, not to mention some where to wash themselves and take care of themselves properly. WE have the money in CA to take care of everybody. The money is there period. It needs to be allocated differently and maybe some people’s salaries need to be cut a little to take care of everybody and let everybody live in dignity.
Veterans are another sore issue with me, and my dad was one and crippled in a wheel chair needing 24 hour assistance in the end of his life, ending last September 2012. I have bought care packages for at least a dozen Vets who proudly served this country to end up crippled in a wheelchair forgotten as though they don’t exist! That is outrageous. What kind of country are we that we don’t care of the very people who served and protected all of us?
These are other issues I will be discussing with the Mayor of Los Angeles. I am a good writer, I can write the speeches I give, and have been on television before using teleprompters on a commercial I did for Orange County News Channel when I was the Director for The Epilepsy Foundation. It was the first commercial produced and aired about epilepsy in over 50 years.
I am a catalyst for Positive Change. I never wanted to get into politics but I care about the big picture and don’t see things through the eye of a pin like so many congress people who are rich and don’t know the real life struggles of day to day.
I know I suffered because a lot of the way we do things in this country, which in many respects are wrong and unfair to single men, single women like myself, and giving priority to women with kids, acting as though every one else doesn’t exist or isn’t important. I want to see everyone treated the same with the same opportunities no matter what color their skin or if they have a child or how much they have their bank account.
I have ideas for a Health Care System that I want to propose to President Obama, but it will take a trip to the White House to show it to him.
It is worth it.
I could change the lives of millions of people if I did. Someone has to care to begin with. That person is going to be Antonio Viliagosi who I sent repeat faxes to with no contact back. My attorney called him and I am sure now he knows I mean business.
I wish that the most important things were the easiest to obtain in life, but they aren’t.
“The open mouth gets fed” as they say or “the one that makes the most noise gets heard.”
I know that when the mayor sees me, and talks to me, it will be harder to forget me. Then things begin to happen to change the way things are…..for the better.
have had Vietnamese men at Starbucks when discussing politics and promoting English in this county and opening the job market up for everybody who can do the job, hiring interpreters for those who need it
