You know what? Fuck the hate, I’m done with it. Trump wants the hate to divide our country. United we stand divided we fall..remember that? An America divided is exactly what trump wants & I’m falling for it. So, say it with me “fuck the hate” or words you prefer. I really am, I’m done with it. Hate has to take itself somewhere else because I no longer have it. I won’t allow myself to be controlled like that anymore. By giving into the trump hate, you are allowing yourself to be manipulated by trump, when enough hate exists the divided will fall & trump will win. Don’t allow that to happen. Fuck the hate! I don’t expect this to come easy to anyone, it’s even hard for me, but this change is necessary to overcome trump. I didn’t say complacency. Not at all. And i’ll still get pissed but, fuck the hate. The feeling of that destructive emotion being lifted from my shoulders is an incredible feeling, one that trump does not want you to feel. I’m going to say it one last time. #fuckthehate
I don’t know if it’s because i’m turning a year older soon or if i’m just evaluating my life for no good reason, but I do know that life at almost 59 is as awesome as it can get.
I may not have money but i’m wealthy beyond belief. I have a place to live, a few friends, many have died over the last few years, many of them younger than me, but hell that just makes me want to live even more.
I have two daughters that seem to adore me as I them. My wife is the most unbelievable, courageous and loving women i’ve ever meet. We will not survive well without each other, but someday we’ll have to. That’s for another day, not today. She is my entire reason I have made it through the shit I have, and believe in nothing but goodness, did I say goodness, I meant greatness.
Bad things happen, but never believe they will. It will steal your soul right out from under you. None of us live a perfect life but we don’t have to succumb to imperfection. The thoughts in your head can determine your life’s future.
Just because i’m the wealthiest man on the planet does not mean you can’t compete with me. There’s always a reason to love your life. It can be the simplest thing, like a smell you like or maybe just a color. It can be a thousand little things that you normally don’t even notice. Notice them!
Distance yourself from people that make you sad or feel bad about yourself, they are thriving on your insecurities. Don’t give them fuel.
I know i’m extremely lucky to have my family, but it wasn’t always that way, yet here I am the wealthiest man in America.
Find your reason to love your life. There are hundreds of ways to do it. If you can’t find a reason to love your life then the fault only lies within yourself. You can change that and it’s all free. No charge. Just remember that to love your life you first must love yourself and there are so many ways to do that.
Unfortunately to love yourself is a journey that only you can take. It can take sometime and effort but, and i’m not kidding here, it can be done. I know i’ve done it. I’m living the dream. You can too, just believe that you are capable of loving, even something as small as a flower. That’s a damn good start. It will turn into so much more.
So take that leap of faith and realize you are a wealthy person and always have been.

I am Bipolar and the methods I came up with works, you just have to believe.
Never think about yesterday, it’s gone! Don’t think about tomorrow, it’s not here yet and will take care of itself. Only live for today, the moment or even the hour if needed.
Remember! The only thing you truly have to do is BREATH. Everything else is an elective.
All days are Great, just some are better than others. Tell this to yourself until you believe it.
I was talking to my wife tonight, about nothing important, at that moment I thought I would give every dime I had just to talk to her, then I realized that I hadn’t a dime to give, so I thought that I would give her every second I had left on this planet just to find out what kind of a day she had.

I think a lot of people don’t understand what real romance is. Anyone can buy flowers, candy, and jewelry, there’s no love in that. The true romantic things in life are those little things you do every day to show you care, and that you’re thinking of them.
It’s going out of your way to make them happy. The way you hold her hand when you know she’s scared, or save the last piece of cake for her. The random text in the middle of the day, just to say “I love you” or “I miss you”.
The way she stops to kiss you when she passes by. It’s dedicating her favorite song to her, and letting her eat your fries; telling her she’s beautiful, even when she’s in her sweats; with her hair in a ponytail and no makeup.
It’s putting your favorite show on pause so she can tell you about her day, and laughing at her jokes even the lame ones. It’s slow dancing in the kitchen and kissing in the rain. Romance isn’t about buying, it’s about giving. True romance is in the gestures.

At the end of life, what really matters is not what we bought, but what we built; not what we have, but what we shared; not our competence, but our character; and not our success, but our significance. Live a life that matters. Live a life of love.

Intimacy is not about sex. It’s about having revealing conversations that last till 4 am. It’s about sharing secrets and fears. It’s about giving someone your attention when 10 others are asking for it. And it’s about that someone special alway being in the back of your mind no matter how busy you are.

I was talking to my oldest daughter tonight and realized that she is at the age, that she is just beginning to live the best years of her life. This epiphany is only realized by memories of my own youth, and I must state, that I’m extremely happy at my age now, and would not go back for anything, but there is no denying it, that those certain years which are different for all of us, were just something special.
My daughter is 23, and is a fiercely independent, free, wild spirit, as I was at her age, only being a male made it a bit different. I told her, that at her age, she has about 15 of her best years ahead of her, give or take a few. I told her to enjoy every second of those years and stay safe. As I talked to her I had a freight train of emotions come rushing through my head all at once, remembering those years that she now will be experiencing. About those that will come in and out of her life, and the ones that will affect her forever, the loves, losses, joy, fulfillment, terror, heartache and unbelievable self worth, at not having to rely on anyone for anything, for what feels like the rest of your life.
I am very proud of my daughter, she makes a very good living, she will not judge others, and she will not accept being judged by others. She is everyone’s best friend or worst nightmare depending on how she is treated. She is walking, no running down the same path that I did when I was her age, it’s maybe not the best path, but I personally wouldn’t change a thing, it made me who I am today. Her best friend is fun, and living in the moment, although she has learned a certain amount of responsibility that is part of, coming of age.
My daughter will have my complete support as she goes through life, and a little advice when needed. Although if you know anyone that’s in their 20’s and already doesn’t know everything I would be surprised. I sure thought I did. Oh well, that’s another story, or are they the same it’s hard to tell at times. I love my daughter very deeply, and I must let her live her own journey through life, hell, that’s what makes it so scary and exciting at the sametime. If she falls I will pick her up, dust her off and send her back out there, after all I’m her father that’s what I’m supposed to do. Really all I can do is say prayers for her safety and well being. Her life is now entirely hers to live, and I shall continue to encourage her to live it to the fullest every single day, without regrets.

When is a man a man. Is it when he works 60 or 70 hours a week. Is it when he has had sex with 40 or 50 women and believes he is a god in bed. Is it the car he drives. Is it the amount of weight he can lift. Is it because he can manipulate, intimidate, hurt people or be a tough guy. Is it because of the friends he uses and believes he gets away with it. Is it the amount of physical pain he can endure. Is it when he uses drugs and alcohol to feel superior. Is it when he abuses his mate and others. Is it the amount of wealth he can accumulate, and a big house to live in.
Or is a man a man, someone that can admit his faults and put other people’s feelings above his own. Is he a man if he only wants what’s best for his loved ones, or is hopelessly in love with one women, and all he wants is for her to be happy for the rest of her life. Is he less of a man for his failures and disappointments in life. Is he still a man if he has deep feelings and is not afraid to show them. Or is a man simply someone that has love, compassion, understanding and has done absolutely the best he can to live his life with dignity and honor.

I went to my local convenience store to buy an energy drink, It was early In the morning. When I got to the door and started to go inside, someone behind me started calling me names, like you fuck head. Well that didn’t set well with me, but I thought maybe he has had a bad morning. I didn’t know, so I took a different approach to the situation, and said I apologize sir, and went on to ask him if he was having a bad day, and if their was anything I could do to help. I always try to keep a positive attitude, I never have a bad day, just some are better than others. After I talked to the gentleman nicely and respectfully, he became very nice and thoughtful to me and the other people around him. It may not always work and you do need to be on the defensive as I was, but I just didn’t show it, and you don’t show fear. But as we walked out of the store together we both said good bye and have a wonderful day. A kind positive attitude is everything. It has worked for me many times when the situation could have easily gotten out of control. I’m not saying this is the answer for all situations, but most normal people just need a kind word sometimes. I do have a temper but I have learned how to control it. Have a nice day.

After it had been revealed that Bernie Sanders has gotten 1/30th of the coverage that Donald Trump has received on the network news, the Sanders campaign issued a statement calling on the corporate news to give Sanders the same coverage as other candidates.
The Sanders campaign said in a statement:
Sen. Bernie Sanders has made big gains in Iowa, leads most New Hampshire polls and fares better than Hillary Clinton in general election matchups against Donald Trump and other Republican White House hopefuls.
But the insurgent campaign that has drawn the biggest crowds on the presidential campaign trail has been all but ignored on the flagship television network newscasts, according to Tyndall Report, which tracks nightly news coverage by NBC, CBS and ABC.
“The corporately-owned may not like Bernie’s anti-establishment views but for the sake of American democracy they must allow for a fair debate in this presidential campaign,” said Jeff Weaver, Sanders’ campaign manager. “Bernie must receive the same level of coverage on the nightly news as other leading candidates.”
There is no objective metric that the media can use to justify their blackout of his campaign. Sanders polls equal to or better Trump. Sen. Sanders beats Trump in potential head to head election matchups. Sen. Sanders has consistently drawn bigger crowds than any other candidate. Sanders is a legitimate presidential contender, yet he is being ignored by the corporate network news.
The explanation is that Sanders is a threat to the billionaires and corporations who own the networks. The corporate press has convinced itself that America is a conservative nation that has no interest in liberal politics, and that voters are too stupid to care about the issues. Both of these self-serving fallacies allow the corporate press to treat news like entertainment while devoting most of their political airtime to politicians who will serve their pro-corporate agenda.
The corporate network news’ treatment of Sen. Sanders is proof of the pro-conservative bias that has overtaken the nightly news broadcasts. Both Sanders and Clinton supporters have long suspected pro-Republican bias, and the nightly news neglect of Bernie Sanders has proven that their suspicions were both accurate and true.
