ROKU Trending Tweets | Church Signs | Universal

Something the Orange Menace and the supposed “religious” people at the “Values” Summit would be wise to remember.

I faithfully watch Twitter everyday on ROKU with their Daily Trending Tweets. They alter as the day & night goes by . I decided to create my own impromptu postings of one’s I find trendingly outstanding. The following is just one of ‘THE BEST OF THE DAY SO FAR’ . . . Good Idea? We’ll see.  Intend to keep going until the Significant Messages have faded away. – j.kiley

Michael Bennett | #BlackLives Matter

So wrong on so many, many levels.

Michael Bennett . Pro Football Player . Member of Seattle Seahawks

Michael Bennett (Pro Player for Seattle Seahawks) was subdued by the Las Vegas PD. He was doing nothing more than responding to hearing gun shots. In his letter he questioned if he was going to die. He speaks of the treatment he receives. It is disgraceful. It does end when the LVPD realize Michael Bennett is a Pro Football player for the Seattle Seahawks. Then and only then do they release him. Keep in mind he did nothing more than being black in a situation where everyone was in fear for their lives after the shots were heard. This terrifying example of police brutally without cause shows exactly how important it is to believe in and support #BlackLivesMatter. Michael Bennett is also from Houston Texas and concerned about his home town. Read the letter below to hear about…

Wise Words for Troubled Times….

There are times when the troubles swirling around us seem overwhelming. When the last thing we seem able to do is stop and see with openness and clarity.  When in the midst of chaos, active, in-the-streets resistence looms paramount while art – and philosophy – often feel like rarified responses. In the recent issue of Poet’s Country Sam O’Hana sits down with American philosopher and gender theorist, Judith Butler to discuss an analysis of poetry at Guantanamo and International Consortium of Critical Theory Programs. Judith offers the following on just why and how we need art so badly in times like these. [Read the whole interview if you can – or at least part of it edited for Lit Hub. I’ve known Judith since we went to college together. Her words are always fascinating, thought provoking, and well worth your time.]

“Finally, it is hard to stay sensate during these times, to see and feel and hear what is happening. There is always the temptation to turn it all off, to exit, to suspend the knowledge of reality, to take leave. In some ways, literature and the arts help to make the world bearable so that we can tarry there longer with the desire to know and understand, to engage, and to transform what calls to be transformed.”

‘Silence of the Lambs’ director Jonathan Demme died at 73 | A Tribute

the secret keeper

“I was really hooked on movies at a very young age. The Manchurian Candidate (1962), along with Seven Days in May (1964), Fail-Safe (1964) and Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964) were this quartet of anarchistic black-and-white American movies, each of which did things that you just didn’t do in American movies, especially in the realm of irreverence toward politics and government institutions and the Army. I was what, 16, it was shocking, it was thrilling and, interestingly, it predated my exposure to the French New Wave so, in a way, this was the American, a certain kind of new wave in American movies.” – Jonathan Demme

Face of Trump Face of Trump [Mental Health Professionals Declaring Him Unable To Be President] Letter In The New York Time from February 9th 2017 letter-editor-from-mental-health-profession-declaring-him-unable-to-be-president

I am posting this now on March 4th 2017 to see if things have been getting worse. D.J.T or as I like to refer to him as ‘The Dangerous D.T.’ [DDT] has topped Nixon. Now who ever thought it possible Watergate would be made to appear like a small wave compared to the Tsunami brewing in Washington D.C. and especially at the White House. Let us wait and see what kind of ride this tale out of some story teller’s crazy mind will take us. ‘Fasten your seat belts – it’s going to be a bumpy night [I prefer ‘ride’].’ Leave it to All About Eve to give us the perfect line.  –  j.kiley

Election Anxiety | What’s Ahead

‘How Understanding Depression Helped Me Through Election Anxiety’
| Review by kiley
Article on Bipolar Advantage Blog

scary face behind the curtain - by kiley 17

scary face behind the curtain – by kiley 17

The title intrigued me. No fear – the article is simply written and some is about understanding the Bipolar-IN-Order state of being. Working on mood changes in a beneficial way. No one is perfect so it is a continual process to work toward my goals. Increasing my self awareness is essential. As I state No one is perfect but I am identifying when something is at too high an intensity level. I make a valiant effort to lower the intensity. Sometimes by my partner just saying Stop [I do hear Stop in my own head – not as perfect a method]. Not pretending its easy is important to remember. Patience and letting go into a Zen state – calm state is extremely important to achieve.

The part of the article that pertains to a great many of us who feel Election Anxiety [a major issue at present] and the imaginings of this writer [me]- how I have reached many fantasy levels in my dealings with Election Anxiety. It is a regular discussion in our home – election results – that is. My partner and I banter our thoughts as though in a tennis match. She feels the same about what we are saying regarding the Election Results but we express it in our own way. I imagine most of us think of ways beyond legalities of how to solve a problem like . . . (I even Hate saying his name – it gives me the creeps). When the thoughts of our upcoming future create overwhelming FEAR and ANXIETY – I start using Magic Thinking [it makes me feel better momentarily – but then I keep having to come up with more reasons the Inauguration will never happen]. Does it raise the level of Intensity in a manic state or draw one into a depression or sometimes into the in-between state. Either way there are methods in sorting out and letting go of the pressure.

This post on Bipolar Advantage regarding Election Anxiety is more than just for those who are Bipolar. The message reaches across all who are concerned with the insanity surrounding us in the political arena; and how do we go about living our lives unaware of why we feel such FEAR – F.E.A.R. = (False Evidence Appearing Real).

Spend a few moments and read this article. It may help you find some answers or at least temporary solutions needing repeating.
