It's About Nothing More, Nothing Less.......It's a Pretty Big Thing

Dear America,

when I first heard the news, I first thought it was a media stunt -- as this guy was kinda big like that.

But sadly, I was wrong.  We have lost a loudmouth, brash, courageous, conservative crusader this morning; Andrew Breitbart, creator of BigGovernment.com and many other conservative web hangouts, has died at the age of 43.

A little something I gained from Breitbart's footprint left upon the world, was that sometimes the provocative is true...of course, sometimes it is not; but clearly, the inherent duty of the citizenry is to decipher the message more completely --  weighing in both context and something I call 'processing', actually doing the investigative discovery in search of the whole truth before reacting.

Anymore, as the world wide web proves every day -- not everything we read or hear is true; sometimes, part of the story is true, and part of the story is sensationalized; sometimes, what is written as 'fact' is false.

which brings me to the rich advise I got this morning on astrology.com via yahoo! horoscopes:
"you may be feeling pretty sassy, 
but try to keep your mouth 
on a five-second delay if you can help it."

so true.

if only.

after nearly fifty years of being me, you have no idea how difficult putting a lid on it truly is...

...but oh how quickly we feel the pain when our words come back to bite us, right?

...but maybe it's just me.

Me thinks there were moments in Breitbart's short life when he wished he kept his big mouth shut; for he was quite bold about it, and certainly on a mission, wasn't he; he didn't just play provocateur around the dinner table, or within his circle of friends and associates -- he used the biggest stage on earth, totally unafraid and seemingly unaffected on the outside.

Surely, considering the news this morning, he was affected.  Deeply.  So much so, it might have managed to get the best of him long before he thought he was done. 

God bless you, Andrew; and whether you are one who can see the good in him, or not, let us hope to find agreement in the gift of hindsight -- be your own investigative journalist.  Find the truth and see if it matches with your own truth before speaking; give yourself a 'five-second' delay; speak with conviction and integrity or don't speak at all.  Be honest with the world and more importantly, yourself.  And always do your very best.

If you know me, little G, then you know I love, love, love Emerson.  I go to him often.  And here's what he told me today:

"All things are double, one against another. -- Tit for tat; eye for an eye;  a tooth for a tooth; blood for blood; measure for measure; love for love.  -- Give, and it shall be given you.  -- He that watereth shall be watered himself. -- What will you have?  quoth God; pay for it and take it.  -- Nothing venture, nothing have. -- Thou shalt be paid exactly for what thou hast done, no more, no less. -- Who does not work shall not eat. -- Harm watch, harm catch.  -- Curses always recoil on the head of him who imprecates them. -- If you put a chain around the neck of a slave, the other end fastens itself around your own. -- Bad counsel confounds the advisor.  -- The devil is an ass.

It is thus written, because it is thus in life. Our action is overmastered and characterized above our will by the law of nature.  We aim at a petty end quite aside from the public good, but our act arranges itself by irresistible magnetism in a line with the poles of the world.

A man cannot speak but he judges himself...Every opinion reacts on him who utters it...You cannot do wrong without suffering wrong."

the law of nature is a force that cannot be denied or dismissed, even if only out of ignorance.

Of course, maybe when we are done sending the world a message, maybe we are just done.  our time on earth is just finished, nothing more, nothing less.

oh but the gift of learning about life as we live it is just so precious!

we are alive! to do GOOD! things in this world, not bad.

what is wrong with us, that these days we just don't get that?

or if we do... you know, "get it"...
how is it that we just no longer tap into the tools available to all of us to truly master it anymore?  The greater good surrounding us lives in our history and in our future, only if we are courageous enough to live from a better core.   Just as garbage in, garbage out works at the speed of light in the real world -- so does good in, good out (and sometimes even remarkably faster).

regarding all the things that are wrong with us...it's affects are seen by how we choose to live, separately and collectively. Our heart and soul and mind is healthy enough to fix all things, for that is how we are made.

and believe it or not, it's the truth.  long proven over the winds of time.

make it a GOOD day, G

in other news, some lingering fumes on the latest news on gas prices -- our local talk radio guy, Mike Slater, reported a direct link of gas prices to the local economy like this:  for every 10 cents/gallon increase, eight to ten million dollars/month gets evaporated from the local market.  poof!  [Gas is up like 26 cents since January]  I listen to Slater daily, and from my experience listening to him regularly, I trust him and this information   -- but as always, feel free to investigate.
