Beneath all isolation and fear, there is connection and love. That is all there ever actually is. And the only price to its sweet reception, my dear humanity, is the willingness to be seen, heard and felt in how much we desire that connection, how much we desire that love. It’s simple, but through vulnerability it can also become easy. Photo by Gerome Viavant.
“Painful as it will be”
FFS, the ‘exceptionalist’ hubris written as a given to a thoroughly propagandised audience of captives to promulgated mythos says it all right there!
Just “Who do we think we are?” – if ever stopping and thinking about it, something quite opposite to our national pre-programmed predisposition of world arbiter of All.
How long, how long, how long…?
Wake the fuck UP, U.S. citizens. They – the oligarchs’ – armed forces, are already murdering for profit and territory worldwide under that mythos, and now the same cabal of sonsabitches are dragging us into further conflict with Iran and ultimately, Russia.
Do NOT fuck with a people who know what life and death are.
A rightfully-proud people of great art and literature who lost 27 million of their family in WW II, while the U.S. “registers” 400 thousand combatants as casualties and claims to have “won the war”.
Why Obama’s petulant snub of the 70th anniversary of what the Russian people rightfully refer to as “The Great Patriotic War” still and will always rankle me to the day I die. ~ djo
“The loss of global respect and prestige seems to stick particularly in the throats of centrist liberals and the Beltway’s tiny clutch of moderate Republicans, hashtag-resistance sorts who consider Trump an appalling Caligula, a grotesque called into being by the fevered prejudices of the less educated corners of their nation, or else willed into existence by the Odoacer of our little Roman drama, Vladimir Putin.
They pine for Obama, a man who always seemed to imagine himself a kind of Eisenhower; he uttered all the correct soothing phrases, and he didn’t fart and gallivant like a toddler when called upon to perform on the world stage. They want the quiet order of Bretton Woods and the G20, balmy joint declarations and hot wars all around the Eurasian periphery that never cause us to break a sweat.
They want national prestige. This is why the whole Jerusalem-at-the-UN debacle so upset them: not because they especially care about the status of Jerusalem, which the U.S. has been fecklessly proclaiming the “eternal and undivided” capital of Israel for decades now, nor because they give one iota about Palestinians, but because they believe, in a strange reflection of the maddest madmen of the GWB era, that appearance is reality.”
Stared trading Cryptocurrencies 2 weeks ago
and turned $15,000 to over $75,000
The crazy thing is my results are small compared
to some people who got into Bitcoin years ago…
Just getting started & learning how to compress time
frames quickly so stay tuned 12 months from right now
when the compound effect really begins to take place…
*Results aren’t typical, so don’t be typical*
So… how do you do it?

Hi Facebook Fam,

In doing so, you’ll help my message reach more people AND gain greater credibility with those interested in booking me for podcasts, interviews, and speaking opportunities. Thank you, and see you all next year. <3
Hey, remember Obama’s Occupy Goon Squads?
Was the ‘world’ watching then too?
Paula Densnow — From my friend Saed Teymuri ” Burning banks, gas stations, judiciary offices, and attacking government buildings is NOT a peaceful protest. This is a plot for a coup. Why has the military not gone to fight against the violent protesters? The reason is that Washington likely has bought some folks. This actually looks like the typical US-backed coup.”
David J Otness The pattern is long-established – tried and true – and here we go again.
If you can’t or won’t see this for what it is – an excuse to make war on Iran – then may your God answer your prayers for your children and grandchildren who will be called to die or come home shattered forever following another US / Israeli invasion for profit, subjugation and territorial domination.
Only fools will fall for this latest international machination. “Demockeracy” and “Freedom” my ass. And btw, late-bloomers, HRC would have been pursuing the same course of action. Period.
Rogue Nation #1. U.S.A.
If you only knew, so many of you…
As is you cannot cope, cannot process, so well has your path of indifference and self-inconsequence been sown, planted and paved into your deepest recesses…
‘Aye, there be monsters out there’… your fears are well-founded. And as a prescient U.S. President once long-ago intoned – correctly – “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
So it is, so it has become, most of you are afraid of your own shadow, that too which has been sown, planted and paved into your deepest recesses…
D’ye see what you’ve been molded into by your ‘betters’?
Shadows, mere shadows of your better nature.
The silence is deafening. ~ djo
Happy New Year People!
I’ve spent the past two weeks taking some time offline to spend with family – I feel re-energised and ready to rock 2018!
As we move into the new year I sense a shift in social media – one where people are more mindful of what they post – I’ve had a lot of friends suffer this year and I think social can amplify the pain as they look through the window into others’ “perfect” lives -
That lovey-dovey status about how you love your partner and your relationship is perfect – hurting a friend who is going through a breakup.
The one about how super duper cute your baby is – hurting a friend who can’t have babies.
That one about the new car/house you bought – hurting a friend who is struggling to make ends meet.
I will continue to share my life online but I’m gonna try and be more mindful of what I post and how it might affect friends – a first for someone who has been unabashedly sharing for 10 years!
So my sister Lily is an artist, and she’s completely brilliant and incredibly ballsy in her work. Here’s a photo of her and a recent commission piece. To the right, an erotic art piece that when I first saw it was like, “ummm whoa, you did that!?” She brings a rich perspective into the way women are conditioned to embody themselves in society. Can you tell we’re related?
She’s a badass. You can follow her on instagram @lilyjbrown and check out her website for details in the comments below. She does commissions, she’s amazing, you should definitely check her out. I’ve posted some more of her art photos in the comments below.
