My heart hurts so bad and I have no idea what to do about it, so you get a Facebook post!
Right now, I cant stand how privileged I am. I cant stand that I can travel any where and enjoy a holiday away from the US and know I won’t have a problem going home. I cant stand that I’m treated well everywhere I go. I can’t stand that I’m able to pretend that nothing is happening back home because I am not there. The reason why I can’t stand it is because most people aren’t as lucky as I am. They weren’t born in America, in a white body. They didn’t have it easy like I have. My life is so damn easy, I worry about things people wish they could worry about instead of their current situation.
I’m sorry to everyone who has felt pain and confusion and loss since the election. I hope everyone can see very soon that nobody is above someone else, no matter the amount of money you make, no matter your skin color, your age, or your religion. We are all equal and I think that scares some people to death.
Aint’ that America…> . Representative Bill Flores, Republican of Texas, called for an outright ban.
“I think they should be banned,” Mr. Flores told the newspaper The Hill. “There’s no reason for a typical gun owner to own anything that converts a semiautomatic to something that behaves like an automatic.”
In an often deadlocked Washington, none of the pronouncements guaranteed action. The National Rifle Association, which has poured tens of millions of dollars into Republican campaign coffers, remained mum on the bump stock discussion and could stop it cold.
And Erich Pratt, executive director of another gun rights group, Gun Owners of America, vowed to block any legislation.
London is beautiful, and we’re soaking it all in, as tomorrow morning we head to Dover for the cruise with a
burma travel agency like Myanmar Discovery.
Yesterday we did a bus tour and got a great overview and quick visit at some major areas.
So far today we’ve been to Buckingham Palace to see the change of the guards, a tour through The Westminster Abbey (where Princess Diana got married, along with Prince William & Kate. There are also many amazing people hurried here like Charles Darwin and Isaac Newton! And we just enjoyed a yummy fish & chips for lunch!
Cartier Queen’s Cup 2017
Following the recent event at Ham polo club, I will be supporting Fred Mannix Canada’s highest ranked polo player of the Sommeliers in the Cartier Queen’s Cup at Coworth Park, Ascot. They are playing Monterosso Polo team in league one. The leagues head to the final on the 18th June to be held in front of the royal family and many other recognizable people.
Natalie of #styleiconnat and #DailyMail fashion writer and myself will be in the guests tent. In turn will be encouraging more #fashion as usual via #SmythBarnes and Natalie’s new website launching in a few weeks. Like many sports events, the earlier tournaments are more accessible and provide more opportunities to learn the game.
Looking for nice sportswear variety at: Commodities Ltd. They offer many coupon codes, and they are free. I believe you will like them.
It was difficult but like a good journalist I tried endlessly and finally got an exclusive with Mr Peacock. After the rather intrusive comments about his conjugal habits, he was both livid and cautious. It took a bit of coaxing, a reminder of better times when the newspapers carried his pictures on the nation pages (whenever there was no interesting news picture to fill the space) and explaining the importance of his version of the story, and he agreed for a telephonic. Considering the heat outside, I agreed with some faux reluctance.
Q How has the journey of being the national bird been?
A I will be candid here, I was always aware of my beauty. Save with

Things like when you have it, flaunt it have only entered your language recently. I did it without any verbosity. But I was certainly humbled when the board decided. It is always nice to get recognition.
Q We hear that you had some close competition?
A Hah, yeah, the great Indian bustard. He is one charming fellow but do I need to explain why he could not win?
Q You think that’s fair?
A Oh, come on, stop digging up things from the past. We are good friends now. How can your national bird have a name like that.
Q Time for the hard questions.
(Some nervous gentlemanly chuckle followed by clearing of throat)
A Go ahead.
Q Are you a celibate?
A Well, let me put it this way: There are many kinds of celibates.
I would identify with the Salman Khan kind. In fact, one can even say that it is a state of mind.
Q Not going into more details of your personal life, would you agree with Mr Judge?
A There is no complete agreement or disagreement. There are multiple truths, multiple thoughts. A man on an acid trip can have his own truth and one on ganja can have his own. Every one has the right to have his truth and play with it when lonely.
Q Come on, you are trying to dribble out of the question with nonsense.
A See boss, I am answering your call for our friendship’s sake and I don’t want to stretch this any further. As a national bird I have some position and responsibility, I am not going to give it away and be called an anti-national by answering your twisted questions.
A mild click and then dial tone.
Well there’s 1st for everything right? First time ever I’ve ever gotten paid for leading a dance party and kicking it off in style when no one wanted to start…not sure how alI feel about it…actually correction, it feels pretty great…thx @rickybreaker @tomorrowland #houseofbooks #funnymoney #wellatleastImlaughing #dancelife #jusgoforit #youreitherinorout #iprefertobein #always #nosidelinebs #music #edm #dubstep #globalcommunity #sntomorrowland #sweetness #thesugaryman #candygram
This nation needs to have an honest debate about gun ownership not about the 2nd amendment.
Is it really a right to own a dozen military assault rifles that can fire in automatic ?
99.9 % of gun owners are law abiding citizens excercising their rights.
And only 1 in 10 gun owners are NRA members.
But somehow this nations’ politicians need to come up with something that prevents private citizen stockpiling of military grade guns.
Who shoots deer with machine guns ?
Many in the Far West militia movements believe the Federal government is the enemy.
They forget that the National Guard, state police, and local police are now jacked up if they ever want that fight.
Sadly, Waco proved that the FBI has tanks now. So there is that.
With Sandy Hook, Orlando, and now Vegas , we need to make all efforts that military grade weapons are legal weapons only for the military.
You want 12 shotguns … weird …but I can abide that legally.
As with Bugs Bunny…it is always Duck season.
You have 12 AR-15′s, I want the government to buy them back from you.
Confiscation is never going to work.
We are going to have to buy them back.
Laws about the buying of new ones is not going to work alone.
We are going to have to buy the military grade ones to get them out of civilian hands.
After Sandy Hook, there may have been a moment.
With Trump and GOP congress, there is just no way.
To end this post.
I am really proud of the people of Las Vegas.
Blood donors were lined up around the block by 4 am this morning.
God Bless them.
And God bless the US Air Force medics and doctors that came into the city from the nearby base.
Oh Full Moon Energy…..
As I sit in my presence of breath and prepare for the first weekend of Teacher Training course ShivaShakti & am grateful to all my teachers, to all the experiences and exchanges, to my beautiful beloved partner (my rock, my Shiva), to my amazing group of friends, work colleagues (both very often). I feel blessed to have you all in my life. You are one of the reasons all that I am and do is possible….. du fond du coeur
Via Bioneers, one can hope>> Contemporary Western fire science is integrating what Indigenous Peoples discovered over thousands of years of observation, and trial and error: fire is key to optimizing forest vitality and biodiversity. The merging of these two ways of knowing could signal the end to our misguided policy of fire suppression, and the beginning of fire-resilient communities with a new relationship to one of nature’s most elemental and fearful forces. With fire ecologists Chad Hanson and Frank Kanawha Lake.
Alerted to this by Steve Kent, a friend who helps spread the word on such issues. Here’s Steve’s note:
> The landmark trial of Michael Foster, a mental health counselor in his 50s, is underway this week in North Dakota’s Pembina County District Court. Foster faces felony charges that could potentially land him in jail for decades for shutting off the emergency valve on the Keystone 1 tar sands pipeline in North Dakota to fight climate change. He is one of five of #ShutItDown “valve-turners” who acted simultaneously in four states and successfully shut off the flow of tar sands bitumen from Canada into the US — the equivalent of 15% of daily US oil consumption. They targeted tar sands because it’s the most carbon-intensive, climate-damaging form of oil.
Foster’s trial is national news. At stake is the principle of whether he (and other climate activists whose trials are pending) will be allowed to cite evidence and testimony about climate impacts of tar sands to show his action was justified. Here’s how the Associated Press covered the issue this week. Here’s how Foster described it in a Newsweek column yesterday:
“The prosecution…moved to block me from presenting evidence of climate danger, the main reason I acted. Prosecutors argue jurors might be biased by hearing about climate change, or being shown evidence of how dirty fossil fuels like tar sands affect it, and what those impacts mean for North Dakotans and all of us. …As a matter of justice, it’s fundamental to have that discussion, and cite evidence to support it, in front of a jury.”
Today, Dr. James Hansen, perhaps the leading authority on climate change in the US, is arriving at Pembina County District Court to testify on Foster’s behalf. He has prepared a written expert report which finds that North Dakotans and all Americans are in danger from climate change, unless “meaningful action to confront the crisis” is taken now, especially on tar sands. But it is not clear whether the judge in the case will admit the report into evidence or allow Hansen or other climate experts to testify.
