A wonderful quote by Steve Jobbs with broad application:

"Your time is limited, don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your inner voice. Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. "

R.I.P., Steve.

There are times I've been accused of being a conspiracy junkie. To that I've been known to replay, "To believe there are NO conspiracies whatsoever afoot is to be horribly naïve."

Does anyone really believe we'll ever know what is actually contained in the Mueller Report? Does anyone actually believe in Trump's lily-white innocence? Does anyone question where Barr's loyalties lie? My personal response is a resounding NO!

My suspicion is that Trump & Company have scrutinized that report to the fullest extent and have found means to target anyone named therein that 'squawked' the new enemy. Rather than routine surveillance with cause, they're calling it 'illegal spying' and as far as the ruling parties are concerned, they're going to get theirs!

I believe Trump & Company, thugs that they are, know exactly how to deal with 'snitches' …. or anyone else that goes against the grain. Kathy Griffin knows his wrath; Kaepernick knows his wrath; the Dems know his wrath; John McCain knew his wrath; and I strongly suspect Avenatti is feeling his wrath with a multitude of trumped up charges brought forth by Trump appointed lawmen! Who else??

IMO, Trump is forever asserting, "Vengeance is MINE" with an ugly sneer of cold command and forever aligning with the true enemies …. Putin, Netanyahu, the Crown Prince of Saudi ... while spitting in the faces of our long standing allies.

THERE! Now … if you really want to know what I think ……. Not that it matters a twit anymore than what YOU think.

The Seven Deadly Sins

Whether you are Christian or otherwise, ponder this. The seven deadly sins were created by orthodox Christian monk, Evagrius Pontiicus, in the 4th century. Those deadly sins are …..

No. 1 = Gluttony ( excessive eating/drinking)
No. 2 = Envy (jealousy)
No. 3 = Lust (excessive sexual desire)
No. 4 = Wrath (extreme/uncontrolled anger)
No. 5 = Greed (desire for more, more more - power and/or wealth)
No. 6 = Sloth (laziness in thinking or movement)
No. 7 = Pride (excessively proud beyond reason)

Just wondering .... would every single one of them conceivably apply to anyone you might know? I have someone in mind, but I won't give myself away. Have at it

He does things Trump fashion with his in-your-face, dumb ass, 'look at me' crap no matter how low the level of interest. He's purely representative of the radical right.

Recent Headliner: "Republicans block U.S. Senate Democrats' move on making Mueller report public".

In February, I posted the following blog that received only 4 comments indicating little interest:

"I am passionate about what befalls my country - ever more so after watching Trump Dynasty on A & E tonight where Trump announced on a taped recording that 'The Mob respects me " and assured us that his achievements have been made possible through his 'associations'. Truth be told ... straight from the horse's mouth.

Mess with Trump and suffer the consequences. He has a network of thugs that'll take care of you. It's obvious to me that his appointees are in his pocket, including Barr, his newly appointed AG; and, including his stacking of the Supreme Court with the likes of Kavanaugh. Personally, I think Mueller has folded under threat and/or knowledge of the overwhelming forces against him in conceivably coming clean of his actual findings .... FEAR???? Thus, he operates close to the bone.

Trump is never happy to win the public debate through support of his 30 percent loyalists. He demands blood! His goal is to conquer the remaining 70 percent. He wants to DESTROY his adversaries out of vengeance and silence his opposition. He follows that vengeance to and beyond the grave as we've witnessed through his recent reiteration and condemnation of John McCain. There is NO end to his ugliness.

Currently, Avenatti is in his crosshairs and it appears Trump has sent his 'Lieutenants" to do him in. Today's headlines read: "Fraud case [against Avenatti] has connections to Trump". Do your homework. Check out who appointed the judge(s) and who brings forward the contrived, mounting charges.

While Trump has touted his oft repeated MAGA, he steps outside our boundaries by aligning himself with the likes of Putin, Netanyahu and the crown prince of Saudi and ignoring the rest of us!!

I guess I'm among those he calls 'evil and treasonous" for daring to confront what I can view through the smoke screen.

At the moment, I don't feel as though winter will EVER end here in central Wisconsin, and March threatens to come in like a Lion. We have had blizzard conditions that - without exaggeration - I've never known in this lifetime.

Before the heavy snows hit - accompanied by 40 to 60 mph high winds - it was just warm enough for rain that with falling temperatures turned to sleet, turned to a heavy accumulation of ice - not only on the walkways and roads but also on the cars in the parking lots … before they were buried in drifting snow.

OMG!

Today was a battle getting car doors to open, let alone attempting to move them for the plows to clear the lots. Car doors were literally iced shut and vehicles had to be hand, hard-pushed from the parking spaces.

More snow and cold in the forecast.

Saudi Arabia Added to List of Terror-Financing Nations ....

Newsweek … 3 days ago:

"The European Union added Saudi Arabia to its growing list of countries that lack tight control over money laundering and terrorism financing.

If all 28 European Union member states ratify the move, it will mean that European banks have to place tighter controls on transactions made with individuals or institutions from Saudi Arabia.

'We have established the strongest anti-money laundering standards in the world, but we have to make sure that dirty money from other countries does not find its way to our financial system," Vera Jourova, the European commissioner for justice said in a statement. "Dirty money is the lifeblood of organized crime and terrorism.'

The decision comes as President Donald Trump and his allies continue to defend Saudi Arabia’s leadership.

On Wednesday, the House passed a resolution to end U.S. military support for the Saudi-led coalition that is fighting a war in Yemen, which has caused a humanitarian crisis and put millions at risk of starvation. The legislation will now go back to the Senate for another vote, but President Trump has already threatened to veto the bill."

WTF???

We had a good foot of snow overnight, and it's STILL coming down. It's pretty, BUT awfully treacherous.
