Reality . . .

. . . coincidental that a (former) 'television reality' host, who harbors a peculiar affinity for 'winners', tweeted support of Reality?  (at the very least, amusing). . .


(from  https://www.cbsnews.com/news/reality-winner-former-nsa-contractor-deeply-regrets-leaking-classified-documents/)
". . . Reality Winner, the former NSA contractor who leaked a secret report on Russia's election hacking efforts to the media, responded Thursday to President Trump's tweet that called her sentence "so unfair." "I can't thank him enough," Winner said on "CBS This Morning" by phone from Lincoln County Jail in Georgia. . ."


(from http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4583088/How-Reality-Winner-got-unusual-name.html)
". . . Reality's father had the honor of naming his second daughter. . . 'He always wanted to have a 'Real Winner' so he named her Reality Leigh Winner. It's just a beautiful name. The plan was to call her Leigh because Reality is kind of a strange name but everyone who knew her just loved the name Reality and it stuck with her. . ."

Musick . . .


(from The Mourning Bride, by William Cosgrove)
". . . Musick has Charms to sooth a savage Breast,
 To soften Rocks, or bend a knotted Oak.
 I've read, that things inanimate have mov'd,
 And, as with living Souls, have been inform'd,
 By Magick Numbers and persuasive Sound.
 What then am I? Am I more senseless grown
 Than Trees, or Flint? O force of constant Woe!
 'Tis not in Harmony to calm my Griefs. . ."

Sticky . . .


. . . situations . . .


Sticky place to be
Sticky relationships
From which you can't get free

Stick to the point
Have a little fun
Until there's disagreement
Then just stick to your guns



Sticky

Frustration . . .


While there is nothing I'd like to see more than our government working properly, resolving issues of importance to the American people, in a non-partisan fashion for the betterment of all, I fear that this is, in actuality, impossible. The partisan divide, which began with the presidency of Barack Obama (read McConnell: "The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.") and continues today, in an even more toxic fashion (if that is imaginable), with the presidency of Donald J. Trump. The reasons for the current situation's dire prognosis are varied and many, but the point is that we do our country and our population no service by perpetuating the current political situation. Both 'sides' must either work together on government (and not waste precious time choosing sides about petty, superficial topics brought to our attention by small, superficial personality flaws) or we must take necessary action for which provision was made in the U.S. Constitution and simply 'get back to business.'

I Love . . .

. . . a parade . . .


. . . as does the president.

(http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/402284-trump-calls-dem-senator-loser-after-criticism-of-military-parade)
". . . Sen. Richard Blumenthal took to Twitter Thursday night to criticize President Donald Trump’s plan to hold a $92 million military parade, the president was quick to snap back with a tweet of his own, calling the Connecticut senator a “loser.”. . . Blumenthal shared a CNBC report citing the hefty price tag and called for those funds to be used to improve the quality of life for veterans rather than for a parade planned for Veterans Day 2019. . . “Real patriotism should mean $92 million to honor military service & benefit veterans, not glorify politicians. Improve vets health care, more jobs & skills, end vet homelessness & suicides — still killing at least 20 heroes every day,” Blumenthal tweeted around 7 p.m. Thursday. . ."

Siding . . .

. . . is NOT what this is about . . .


(http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/08/23/cruz-challenger-beto-orourke-dinged-for-saying-nothing-more-american-than-kneeling-during-anthem.html)
". . . Beto O’Rourke, the Democrat challenging GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in the midterm elections, is being slammed by Republicans for saying (included in detailed, thorough, intelligent and respectful remarks in answer to a question from the audience) there is “nothing more American” than kneeling during the national anthem. . . O’Rourke, a Democratic congressman, was asked at a recent campaign event about NFL players who kneel during the anthem. O’Rourke replied, “I can think of nothing more American than to peacefully stand up, or take a knee for your rights anytime, anywhere, any place.”. . . Cruz tweeted (in a not so thorough, intelligent and respectful manner), "Most Texans stand for the flag, but Hollywood liberals are so excited that Beto is siding with NFL players protesting the national anthem that Kevin Bacon just retweeted it. That means all of us us can now win Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon!" . . . "

Advice . . .



. . . is certainly easily obtained
At a rate of about 'a dime a dozen'
Experts abound
Some asking more
Others asking less
For sharing their precious wisdom
"Budget?" they ask
To which I say No
"Goals" they inquire
Well most certainly Yes!
I want to make music
For you and the rest

(from https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/white-house/trump-calm-now-white-house-allies-brace-potential-meltdown-n902986)
". . . Cohen's allegations are "interesting but not legally significant," said a source familiar with the matter. Even if Trump did order the payments, it's not a campaign finance violation, the source said, adding that Cohen isn't credible because his story keeps changing. . .Trump's story about the payments also has changed, as he initially told reporters he knew nothing about them. Trump later tweeted that he reimbursed Cohen for money paid to adult film actress Stormy Daniels. . ."

Você . . .

Voices of all hue and stripe
Can be heard throughout each day and night
Some are worth aBosley Beachten
But many are not
Yours is to choose

There's a voice of reason
There's a voice of discontent
There's a voice of great dishonesty
And a voice of great lament

But the voice I find most desirable
Is a voice I hear quite much
And I've always found it all I need
It's power can literally touch

The Lay . . .

. . . of the land evokes images, in my mind, of old cowboy movies replete with ten-gallon hat, many horses, six-shooters and lots and lots of wide-open spaces; the proverbial 'back forty.' In my current reality, the lay of the land means adjusting in terms of where to find what, and learning exactly how to get there. . .


(http://grammarist.com/idiom/lay-of-the-land-or-lie-of-the-land/)
Lay of the land is a phrase that figuratively or metaphorically means the current state of affairs, how something is organized. Literally, the lay of the land is the arrangement of features upon the land. One usually assesses the lay of the land in preparation for action. The idiom lay of the land is first recorded in 1819. A related idiom is the British phrase how the land lies, a usage that turns up in about 1700. According to Google Ngram Viewer, the use of the term lay of the land peaked in the early 1900s. Lay of the land is a North American phrase. . . Lie of the land is the British phrase that metaphorically means the current state of affairs, how something is organized. Literally, the lie of the land is the arrangement of features upon the land. In fact, lie of the land and lay of the land mean the same thing.

Teams . . .

. . . and their complications . . .


(from The First Tycoon; The Epic Life of Cornelius Vanderbilt by T.J. Stiles)
". . . The Bank War spun American politics in a centrifuge, concentrating the two impulses of the day into distinct parties. On one side were (Andrew) Jackson's followers, the Democratic Party - or the Democracy, as they called it - the party of individual equality and limited government. Under the slogan "Jackson, Commerce, and Our Country," they celebrated a market economy of real persons and republican simplicity. In opposition arose the Whigs, who were more trusting in the beneficial role of active government. At the time, the division between the two seemed as natural as a canyon. The Democrats had emerged out of the resistance to the eighteenth-century patricians and their culture of deference, out of battles against the limited franchise, aristocratic privileges, and mercantilist monopolies. Though their elected leaders often would make use of government's economic power, the most radical among them . . . championed laissez-faire as their definition of equal rights. . . "

Are You . . .

. . . STILL a fan? . . .

(from http://washingtonsources.org/trump-if-soldiers-were-real-patriots-they-wouldnt-take-a-pay-raise/)
". . . Trump spoke to troops at Fort Drum in advance of a signing ceremony for the 2019 national defense authorization, which includes a 2.6 percent pay raise for the troops. . . “We are proudly giving our troops the biggest pay increase in a decade,” Trump said. “I know you don’t want it because you’re very patriotic. You’ll say, just save the money. We’re going to pay down debt.”. . . Then Trump awkwardly launched into what perhaps was supposed to be a joke. Except the crowd didn’t seem to find it funny at all. . .“Does anybody not want it? Please raise your hand,” Trump he said. After scanning the crowd, he added, “What’s going on here? Are these real patriots? I don’t know, General. I don’t know. . . Perhaps Trump should spend less time “joking” about our troops and questioning their patriotism, and more time showing them the respect they deserve. . .”
