Energy, Memes, and Money: When you are on your way to vote and your friend shows you that officials are selected not elected @truth society If voting could truly change the world it would be illegal. - Even if your vote does count, you are given the choice between two candidates who are heavily funded by corporations and individuals with specific agendas. The politicians are further bought with lobbying. - “You can’t take a congressman to lunch for $25 and buy him a steak. But you can take him to a fundraising lunch and not only buy him that steak, but give him $25,000 extra and call it a fundraiser.” – Former lobbyist Jack Abramoff - The people who really run the show, the puppet masters, derive their power from the private banking system. - “Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes it's laws" — Mayer Amschel Rothschild - Real change starts with YOU. Voting with your actions to support local, sustainable, and healthy businesses and ideas. Being the change you wish to see in the world. That is where the real revolution is happening. - “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” -Socrates - To change the current reality you don’t work within its rules but instead make the existing system obsolete by creating something better. - “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” -Einstein - “Presidents are selected not elected.” -President Roosevelt

Bad, Fail, and Future: 15 Things to Give Up If You Want to Be Happy 1. Give up your need to always be right. Would I rather be right, or would I rather be kind?-Wayne Dyer 2. Give up your need for control. By letting it go, it all gets done. The world is won by those who let it go. When you try & try, the world is beyond winning. Lao Tzu 3. Give up on blaming others A man can fail many times, but he isn't a failure until he begins to blame somebody else.- John Burroughs 4. Give up your self-defeating self-talk. The mind is a superb instrument if used rightly. Used wrongly, however, it becomes very destructive. Eckhart Tolle 5. Give up your limiting beliefs. A belief is not an idea held by the mind; it is an idea that holds the mind. -Elly Roselle 6. Give up complaining. You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because thorns have roses. Ziggy 7. Give up the luxury of criticism. Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others.- Christian D. Larsen 8. Give up your need to impress others. Don't try to impress others. Let them have the fun of impressing you.-James R. Fisher, Jr. 9. Give up your resistance to change. Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.- Joseph Campbel 10. Give up labels. The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don't know anything about.-Wayne Dyer 11. Give up on your fears. The only thing we have to fear is fear itself. -Franklin Delano Roosevelt 12. Give up your excuses. 99% of failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses. -George Washington Carver 13. Give up the past Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Christian D. Larsen 14. Give up attachment. The wise individual doesn't get too attached to any of life's pleasures, knowing that wonderful science is hard at work proving it's bad for him. Bill Vaughan 15. Give up living your life to other people's expectations. The world is a mirror and reflects back your expectations. What you get is what you see. You create your own reality.- Denis Waitley Source: http://worldobserveronline.com/2012/04/25/15- things-you-should-give-up-to-be-happy you should probably go to TheMetaPicture.com srsfunny:If You Want To Be Happy

Arguing, College, and Joe Biden: let's get it popping. Biden/Obama 2020 yeah yeah i know @WeCloutChase The 22nd amendment would allow Joe Biden to run as President and Barrack Obama as his VP. Just saying. Show this thread 600 hst3000: libertarirynn: hst3000: libertarirynn: coolmanfromthepast: libertarirynn: hst3000: libertarirynn: The constitutionality of this would likely be questioned by the electoral college but it miiiight get through depending on how strictly they interpret the 22nd amendment, since Obama would not technically be being “elected” to the office of president, which is the explicit provisional language in the amendment (Not that somebody couldn’t theoretically hold the office more than twice, but that they could not be elected to it twice). All that said it would be a shitshow but mighty entertaining. 12th amendment, guys: No person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States. Obama is an unconstitutional selection. Not exactly: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2015/08/06/could-joe-biden-pick-barack-obama-as-his-running-mate-yes-but/?utm_term=.dc9a5700ef57 All the WaPo article means is that “It’s okay when Democrats violate the Constitution!” It literally does not say that at all and I question if you even read it. I have… opinions… on Dorf. Obama is ineligible for the office. Saying ‘well he’s only ineligible to be ELECTED’ is stupid shenanigans. Like saying you’re allowed to be in a house because while they said ‘don’t come in this door’ you came in through the WINDOW. You can’t back door a non citizen into the presidency this way, I see no reason why this would be different for term limitations. You can call it “stupid shenanigans” all you want but this is how the law works. Every phrase, comma, and word choice matters. If there is even a window there is a lawyer who will argue that point. I’m certainly not in support of this idea, I’m just saying you can’t hand wave a legal argument because you’re pretty sure it meant something that’s not explicitly stated. The fact is the amendment could have explicitly said “no former president can ever hold the office more than twice under any circumstances”, but it doesn’t say that, it says they cannot be elected. There is a difference. Being elected is the default way to become president. I don’t doubt someone would argue it, but it’s a STUPID ARGUMENT. The rest of the argument in that article is ‘well there’s no law saying the parties can’t run a dog for election’ type of crap. “Being elected is the default way to become president” Yes but it’s not the only way. Teddy Roosevelt not initially get elected to the office, he became president when McKinley died. Whether or not it’s a stupid argument is beside the point. We’re talking about theoretical legality.
