ExxonMobil and Iran did business under secretary of State nominee Tillerson

ExxonMobil and Iran did business under secretary of State nominee Tillerson

Whaaat?? That has to qualify as treason. Undermining America's security and rule of law.

Let alone the post below: that burning fossil fuel is creating an increasingly dangerous planet.

NOT a RESPONSIBLE, TRUSTWORTHY SECRETARY OF STATE CANDIDATE AT ALL. #rejecttillerson

"Finding loopholes to make lucrative business deals with geo-political adversaries, while showing no clear regard for U.S. national interests, is not a resume builder for a prospective diplomat-in-chief," Menendez said in a statement to USA TODAY. "This is one of the many issues I look forward to hearing more about during the upcoming confirmation hearings.”

As Donald Trump Denies Climate Change, These Kids Die of It -- NY Times

Here

I post this story with tears running down my face. I'm sick in my stomach and my heart rate is up.
Is this the world in which we want to live?
Is this the world we must ignore while people like Trump pursue greed at all costs?

Michelle Obama: 'We are gonna be there for the next president' - POLITICO

Michelle Obama: 'We are gonna be there for the next president' - POLITICO

This was a great interview. What a classy lady. We will miss the Obama's terribly.

Taking the high road, being inclusive, working for a clean environment and combating climate change, working for families, being a role model for women and people of color. Really a such a great, great person.

Sunset, Venice 12/20/2012
I've been thinking some about the Winter Solstice, the Mayan end of the 30,000-year-cycle on 12/21/12.

What if in fact the world did end? To live consciously, even though this probably will not happen, it is honest to take a bit of an inventory.

Am I happy with how I've lived my life? (Yesterday, I thought mostly yes, with some areas for improvement, as below.) Are there changes I would make?
Would I have tried to forgive those that were hostile or disappointing to me?
Would I spend more time with those I loved the most, telling them that, feeling that more?
Would I be happier, grateful for what I have, what I've experienced, the joy, the beauty in this world?

Maybe the answer is yes to all of the above.
So this time can serve as a point of rebirth for all of us. If we think about it.

Because somewhere I realized I think maybe mankind deserves it. !
The way we are killing each other, killing the planet.
How selfish we are, and snotty to those around us. Petty, competitive. Why is this? Do we have to behave this way? (I say no, it greatly detracts and misdirects energy from the full-time celebration in which we could engage, the great multi-cultural, multi-rhythmic dance we can sustain here.)

Maybe God or the Great Universe is fed up, and will pull the rug out from under us.
Don't think I can say we could blame Him/Her/It.

But it probably won't happen. (Probably not! This time.)

Still we are finite on this ride.

It is a time to think, am I happy with how I've lived my life?
Hopefully most of us can say yes.

For the part of us that have a little worry, a little sadness....
This is the time to be present.
This is the time to be the person you want to be, that can die at peace, that can hope to every day be able to look yourself and the Universe in the eye and say, how beautiful, smiling, and thank you. Let's do that.
