Are We There Yet?

Are We There Yet?
This is the sign that is over the front door of Aileen's and my house, our home, going OUT. Meaning that when someone leaves our house they are going into the ACTUAL Mental Ward.

I've always felt that way. When it is considered how much ugliness and killing and hatred there is in the world today, it actually makes perfect sense that this sign is over the door going out of the house.

Because that's where the real mental ward is.

System Update: Dragon NaturallySpeaking, Windows Live Writer, Windows 7, Blogging, Browsing

Dragon NaturallySpeaking:

I have gone back to using the KOSS headset microphone.  Because I'm finally getting to the point where the speech program is operating as correctly as it really ever will.  But more than that, I am now starting to move forward with his really getting into the nuts and bolts of what I wanted to write in my Journal.  And because I want to have a higher degree of accuracy and effectiveness from Dragon NaturallySpeaking.  It only makes sense that I go ahead and start using the Koss headset microphone.  Once again.  Because it really does have the highest degree of accuracy of any of the other microphones.

What I have also done is to save the user file that has my desktop microphone in it as well.  So that I can, should I need to do so, go back and forth between the two types of microphones.  But for the foreseeable future, I will be using the Koss headset microphone.

Blogging:

Windows Live Writer….

I have gone back to using Windows live writer.  And the reason is because, now that I have Firefox pretty much set up the way that it needs to be, in relation to Dragon NaturallySpeaking.  Firefox is now stable enough with my system.  Meaning, that with all the different types of programming I run on my system, Windows live writer now is operating well enough so that I can actually use it on my system without having the computer strain.

However, I am still going to be using the blogger blog template.  Which is of course online.  I just won't be using it anywhere near as much as I'm going to be using Windows live writer.

News Postings….

I am still doing news postings.  And I will continue to do so.  It's not really about the volume.  As much as it is about a particular news stories that I think that by talking about them in my Journal.  The result will be a broader degree of potential enlightenment that the reader will realize as a result of presenting certain news stories in the Journal.

Right now.  Of course, with the economics and the politics of the going on in the United States.  It really has been more of a focus for me to pay more attention to of course the financial situation going on in the United States.  Plus of course dealing with the political and sociopolitical and the socio-theological or religious aspects of what is actually taking place in the country.  There are probably a number of different ways that I could present some of these news stories.  But again I'm trying to present in and various ways that will be as easily understandable by the reader.  So a lot of times the positions I'm taking are absolutely the positions I actually feel strongly about.  However, when I feel strongly about a particular position I'm taking in my Journal.  There are probably six or seven different ways of attempting to illustrate why that particular subject is in fact meaningful to me.  In addition to why I believe talking about.  It is important my Journal.

Given the circumstances that are going on in the world right now.  Not only with regard to various cultural and socio-cultural and sociopolitical and socioeconomic circumstances that are taking place.  But in addition to the level of conflict is going on.  Socio-politically and socio-culturally.  I have pointed my focus in my articles in just a few different directions.  Additionally, because these economic and political circumstances are the way they are at this point.  That is one of the reasons why I am not doing certain other types of Journal articles as much as I would like.  Humanity's focus right now is in the area of what I call, the meat and potatoes of daily life.

Basically what I'm talking about is that people right now are not really open to discussing any more of the abstract or extended points of view with regard to a number of different issues.  Because most of humanity is focused on only two really very specific issues which is in fact, politics, and/or human rights.  In addition to the economic crisis that is still pending.

Once the use rather dynamic and extremely conflicted circumstances are not as severe as they are right now.  That will be the time.  Probably when I will get back to doing other types of Journal articles meaning other types of news articles.  Specifically with regard to some of the other aspects of what I am observing taking place in the world.  Meaning, of course, things like science and health and of course other areas.  It's just that right now in these days.  While Congress and the government are basically attempting to work out some kind of solution to the economic crisis.  It just doesn't make a lot of sense to be doing news stories on topics that are germane to what is actually taking place.

Browsers:

I have downloaded Google Chrome.  But part of the reason I did that is because I have certain programs that sort of pastor me about using Google Chrome.  I have said repeatedly that I do enjoy Google Chrome quite a bit.  But I also find Firefox conceptually and informationally to be more consistent with the way that my brain thinks.  That's really the bottom line.  Firefox is set up in such a way so that it just seems to be and actually is, much more consistent with the way that I think about things and how I process information.  I'm not going to get into the details of why that may in fact be so because the details are at the very least extraneous.

So while I have Google Chrome on my system.  I am still using Firefox which is working very well.  No problems whatsoever.

Personal:

I have a lot of work to do today.  I have to catch up on my e-mail and petitions.  Which I have sort of let slide during the Christmas holiday.  Additionally, I have a lot of things to take care of around the house.  Some of those things.  I will probably do tomorrow.  But some have to be done today.  So those few things and taking care of e-mail is pretty much what I'm planning on for the day.  Then perhaps a little TV and relaxation.

Thank you very much for listening.

"THEY CAME FIRST for the Communists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.

THEN THEY CAME for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.

THEN THEY CAME for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.

THEN THEY CAME for the Catholics,
and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant.

THEN THEY CAME for me
and by that time no one was left to speak up."

      Child Poverty Statistics:

    • 25,000 children die each day from poverty
    • 1041 children die every hour due to poverty
    • 17 children die every minute from poverty
    • 750,000 children die every month from poverty
    • 9,000,000 children die every year from poverty

    Child mortality Statistics:

    • 9.2 million children die every year
    • 780,000 children die every month
    • 26,000 children die every day
    • 18 children die every minute

    An estimated 9.2 million children under the age of five will die this year – nearly 26,000 per day or 18 every minute. This is greater than the annual number of deaths from 1. AIDS (2 million), malaria (900,000), and tuberculosis (1.5 million) combined. 2. Neonatal disorders, pneumonia and diarrhea are the major causes of under-five mortality.

    Globally, 80 percent of all child deaths are due to only a handful of causes: neonatal causes, pneumonia, diarrhea, and malaria. 3. Pneumonia or sepsis, pre-term delivery, and asphyxia at birth are the leading causes of neonatal deaths. Malnutrition is responsible for over a third of child deaths.

    From: http://www.globalhealth.org/child_health/child_mortality/

    And, according to recent United States statistics, there are approximately 43,000 suicides that take place, in the United States every single year. Thats wouldbe one suicide taking place, by children as young as 12, or possibly younger, up to our oldest citizens. Approximately every 15 minutes.
    Not one single penny that the pro-life movement spends on their so-called pro-life movement goes toward saving any of these “living” children’s lives. Not one single cent. Which means that not one single cent of the so-called pro-life movement is being used to save any of the amazing children and absolutely fantastic women, and men, who are being killed, or suffering horribly, every single minute. so naturally, it becomes impossible to conclude that the pro-life movement is pro-life at all, if they will not even save the lives of living children and men and women. But will always only be concerned with, and define life as the “fetus” only. And THAT’S NOT how their own God Jesus Christ defines life, in their own Bible.
    Which means that the pro-life movement is not pro-life at all. Because their money is “not” going to save any living life on this planet. Their money is only going toward forcing women to bear children against their will. And that’s not how their own God, Jesus Christ defines pro-life.

    With 78% of the population of the United States being Christian, (US Religious Demographic Statistics ) that also means that 78% of all the:
    Crimes
    Domestic Violence (national domestic violence statistics )
    Rapes
    Murders
    Hate Crimes
    Child Molestations
    Child Abuse (US Child Abuse Statistics )
    incidents that take place every year, are committed by approximately 78% of the population, meaning people who claim to be Christians. (US Religious Demographic Statistics ). And that is something that the Christian conservatives , and those who are Catholics, never seem to want to discuss, and in many, if not , cases, will lie about. Unless they are forced to do so, and/or tell the truth, in aecourts oflaw.

    And again, theirnownyGods,Jesus Christ saysin their own Bible, not to judge anyone, and not to hurt anything that God makes. That’s anything. So, these statistics are really meant to illustrate about being responsible for one’s own choices and actions. That would be, in their own Bible, free-will choices and free-will actions.

    My Statement On Religion
    For the record, I do not now, nor have I ever hated any human being on earth. I do not hate, regarding my spirituality, and spiritual beliefs, anything that God did make. Meaning that I do not hate the “humanity” that exists within any human being. However, God did not make the personal choices that humans make, regarding how they behave, and/or present themselves, to the world. So if a human being chooses, of their own free will to demonstrate their behavior with racism, bigotry, prejudice, and hatred for other humans, on the basis of their own free will choice as to how they define their spirituality within themselves, that is their own choice. So I do not hate any human being for being that which God did make. I hate only the choices and the manner in which humans have decided to demonstrate their behavior to one another. I do not hate religion. However, I will never give my support to “any” religion, that has ever caused harm to, or killed, a single human being, in any way, as a result of the religion demonstrating, or manifesting it’s presence in the world. If any religion has ever harmed or killed a single human being, I respect the right of all humans to believe what they want in life. I, personally, will under no circumstances give my support for any religion, or theological belief, that has ever harmed or killed even a single human being. This is what I have dedicated my life to as a spiritualist and a pacifist here on earth. So any attempt by anyone to portray me as hating anyone is a lie. Because that is not so. The foregoing clearly shows that I have no hatred for humankind or for any religion.

    My Pro-Life Statement
    For the record, I am pro-life . I do not support violence against, or the killing of any human being under any circumstances! And the only way that I ever deviate from that stand is that I do not believe that God has ever given any human the right to dictate to any woman how she is to arbitrate her life with the Almighty, and/or God . Therefore, I believe that all women deserve the right to choose for themselves the fate of their own bodies, pursuant to their relationship with the Almighty, and/or God . My position regarding this statement is more fully explained in my article entitled: Second Gear.
