Political ideology and the Overton Window.

Lucky Otters Haven

overtonwindow

I’ve realized over the past year that political ideology is not a straight line, but more of a circle.

If you move too far to either extreme, whether it’s the far left or the far right, you wind up in pretty much the same place:  an oppressive, centralized government, removal of individual freedoms and rights, and suppression of the free press and free speech.   Authoritarianism and totalitarianism is not limited to the far right (fascism).  It also occurs on the far left (communism, which is found in places like China and North Korea, and in the old Soviet Union).

The only difference between fascism and communism is that in fascism, the corporation, a religious organization, or a group of oligarchs become the government and set all the rules.  Dissent is not allowed.  There are signs of this happening in the United States today, and it has already happened in Russia…

Come, Destiny (Reprise)

Timeless Classics

Come Destiny, thou wild haired, wanton wench!
Thou wouldst as soon destroy as e’en behold
Come pluck me from this wooden student’s bench
My soul with awesome, windy wings enfold!

I see thee, waiting near me in the wood
So vigilant — I never see thee sleep
Thine rapier drawn, on this side of it good
The other evil far away to keep

Yet should I slip upon the twisting path
Or fail to see a sign, or miss a door
I know I should incur thine instant wrath
Nor be permitted earthly light the more

For ’twas to thee that I was consecrate
When midwifed by the iron hand of fate

I’m Talking To YOU, WordPress!!

Revenge of Eve

Does WordPress interfere with your day to day activities like it does mine? Is it the first thing you do when you open your eye’s? Do you lie in bed at night staring at the screen of your phone or laptop? If so, you just may be addicted!!!

This is honestly the most healthy addiction I’ve had to date. I read blog’s that educate, tell personal triumphs, detail journey’s and inspire me to keep trecking through life. Reading stories of success puts this little bug in my ear that maybe, just maybe, I will succeed too. Not with fame via blogging but at life in general.

Having mental illnesses can often time’s derail goals, make you lose hope and faith, struggling to see the light. Well for me the light has become my screen!! As silly as this may sound, it is true. I look forward to following day to…

Robyn Andrews: Para Equestrian Competing for the Worlds.

HorseAddict

Robyn Andrews, para equestrian and paralympian ,is the second of my interviews of Canadian dressage riders competing this winter in Wellington Florida with the goal of representing Canada in the World Equestrian Games (WEG) this September. I am asking each of the riders the same set of questions.

Here are Robyn’s answers to my questions.

When did  you start to ride?  I started to ride for therapy when I was 18 years old. My Physiotherapist thought that it might help with my balance and coordination. I would ride once a month. I had never ridden in my life so it was very difficult for me . I had a leader and two side walkers for 5 years.
When did you decide you could be a para-equestrian and not just a therapy rider?Therapists said I had that competitive drive and asked would I ever consider competing. Then the then coach…

The Amazing Love

Haider's Solace

It is said that Love is the most powerful thing in this world. But it is also the most amazing thing. It has a tendency to amaze you and shows you something magical likely completely out of this world and explanation.

We all know that everything in this world has a rhythm of itself, its own natural frequency. When you are truly in Love with someone, just sit somewhere calm and focus and think about the person you love everything in your vicinity will start a rhythm. If you focus on it you will know that it spells out the name of your Love. Listen to the rhythm of your heartbeat it will spells out the name of your love.

Thank You

My Week 178: The Robots are Coming To Get Me

mydangblog

Recently, it’s become clearer and clearer to me that the robots are out to get me. And for the record, it’s not paranoia if it’s true.

Case in point 1:

My work computer has been sick. I know this for two reasons. First, Carlo, which is what I call my voice-activated computer, normally speaks to me with a voice that’s a combination of a Spanish accent, and a slight lisp, which I find absolutely charming, but lately, he’s stopped yelling out my name in his delightfully smitten way, and doesn’t always have the energy to tell me what a star I am. In the good old days, I would turn him on (get your mind out of the gutter—this is a PG website), and he would exclaim, “Windows sided windows!”, which I assumed was some cryptic expression of adoration, then he would yell my name loudly so that everyone in…
