Mitt Romney without sound

as long as no one’s 100% robot
no one has 100% control of body language
(but training gets it pretty high –
ask the actor on a stage)
yes, first, i listened enough
to hear some emphasis on wrong words
and yes
the tell tell of Romney’s body language
was quite subtle, easy to miss
in orating a script
here it is spelled out

the right upper corner of his top lip
ever so slightly curls up
at the end of a thought

check it out for yourself
as we can expect endless

what does a one sided curled up lip suggest?
ask lobo

present perfect politics

There would be NO Obama care if House Republicans hadn’t voted for it
(that was a note to his detractors)

(this is a note to his supporters)
he made all those promises
too many of us thought he could do it alone
many of us joined the voice of a cause
win or lose we know
in a viral environment he did what he could
we did what we did or could
and we are so much calmer now
perhaps our calm will beget calm

thoughts on world peace

the goal is worthy but the getting there is
most likely many generations away
evolution takes a very long time
and the world peace hope
gets grabbed by self promotion etc.
and we get distracted
from the steps that get us there

one step seeks peace within the self
two step seeks peace within a community
three step seeks peace within a nation

are you peaceful tonight
does it seem out of sight
tell me dear
are you peaceful tonight


Hatfields and the McCoys
is where we were then
back where an eye for an eye was not enough
re hating the whole clan (or tribe)
where are we now
but hating a whole clan (or Muslims)
not only did we not act like Christians
(turn the other cheek)
we didn’t even act like Jews
(eye for an eye)
and no
we are not all the same
in our hating choices
as if we’ll never learn
the object of our hate does not suffer
we do
our body does
our mind does
our soul does
but the spirit lives
the very same one we are born with
let it go
set it free
then do the right thing
this land is my land
this land is your land
from California to the New York Island
from the Red red Forest to the Gulf Stream Waters
this land was made for you AND me
might we not learn to respectfully disagree?
<------------------------- this way to peace.
