Safe Flying

If you’re flying over the holidays try and keep these things in mind:

First: The Fourth Amendment of the Constitution:

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

Next:

“A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both.” ~ Dwight D. Eisenhower

And finally:

“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” ~ Benjamin Franklin

As a people we should be totally ashamed that we’ve let things (and by things I mean our government and fear mongering fourth estate) get so out of hand that we’ve granted the right of search to a company that has less than a (approx.) 25% “catch” rate for anything related to harming us while we fly…

We are all morons and deserve the metaphorical (and near literal) raping of our persons, country and planet…

Lost Generation

A palindrome reads the same backwards as forward.This video reads the exact opposite backwards as forward.  Not only does it read the opposite, the meaning is the exact opposite.
This is only a 1 minute, 44 second video and it is brilliant.   Make sure you read as well as listen…forward and backward. 
              

This is a video that was submitted in a contest by a 20-year old.   The contest was titled "u @ 50"  by  AARP. This video won second place. When they showed it, everyone in the room was awe-struck and broke into spontaneous applause.  So simple and yet so brilliant. Take a minute and watch it.


Synchronicity Quick Post

Almost twenty years ago a woman I worked with did a numerical "reading" of me based on my name and birthdate. Two things it revealed was that I have both an innate ability to get to the heart of a matter (who won the pool?), and that my life is filled with a touch of enchantment…

While I am not a big believer in the supernatural, I have noticed – especially as I've gotten older – that riding the synchronicity highway is getting easier every year… And that I "need" to get out of my own way, so that I can walk that walk more often… Because when I do, amazing things happen.
