CREATION...  Human life begins in bright flash of light as a sperm meets an egg, scientists have shown for the first time, after capturing the astonishing ‘fireworks’ on film.
An explosion of tiny sparks erupts from the egg at the exact moment of conception.

Imagine, if you will, coming home from work one day and finding a barbarian with the emotional and intellectual development of a four-year old suddenly living in your spare bedroom, and because it's been mandated by the state there's virtually nothing you can do to remove him. It gets worse, the new guest's favorite toy is a machete and he has ripped down the cross you have the wall and thrown it into a burning pile containing your Bible and the American flag. Correct me if I'm wrong, that is exactly what BathHouse Batty Obama's just done with these 10,000 strangers from Syria who now live among us, uninvited, unwelcome, unvetted, and totally dangerous and unpredictable. Now he and Hilliary want millions more.

There are Christians into replacement theology, but the persecution and destruction of Christians is sourced in hell. The same Muslim mindset that helped Hitler wipe out Jews in 40's Europe has snuck into the US government and forged an unholy alliance with the pro-palistinian left to target Christians and Jews for oppression, exclusion, and eventual genocide. The Muslims are not quiet about this, but know that 7 million Jews and many Christians live in the US, and see the US as a new land for conquest, and genocide of their traditional enemies. Some of those "in name only" Christians in Congress are supported Obama's deal to give nuclear bombs to Iran!. Now Obama has sent billions in laundered cash that will be used to support terrorism.
It’s Time We Faced the Facts about the Muslim World
Here is a plain, inarguable truth: A series of Muslim immigrants and “visitors” are responsible for killing more Americans on American soil than the combined militaries of Imperial Japan and Nazi Germany. Two more attacks over the weekend [last weekend] left 38 Americans wounded, and it appears that both were carried out by Muslim immigrants.

Despite making up a tiny fraction of the American population, Muslims are responsible for exponentially more terror deaths than any other meaningful American community.

Yet when any politician or pundit suggests restrictions or even special scrutiny applied to Muslim immigrants — especially Muslim immigrants or visitors from jihadist conflict zones — entire sectors of the Left (and some on the right) recoil in shock and horror. Whenever there’s a terror attack, there’s an almost palpable desperation to determine that the attacker was not Muslim and the attack had “no connection” to international terror, in spite of the fact that it is now ISIS and al-Qaeda strategy to inspire lone wolves

This isn’t invidious discrimination; it’s evidence-based policy-making. It’s not bigotry; it’s national defense. When “diversity” brings death, it’s time to shed fairy-tale ideologies and recognize grim truth. The Muslim world has a problem. It’s time our nation responded accordingly.
Islam has a serious problem. America needs to start acting accordingly.

They, our Muslim brothers and sisters must rid themselves of this cancer that is killing them. For those Muslim Americans, do as I do, and keep them in your prayers.

The More I read about him the more I like him..
You will too.

Not like an Obama or a Clinton that needs to leverage the position of President to hustle a buck.

Trump will not have to house his Mother In Law at the White house or fake positions for his kids so they can get a free ride on a plane to Africa and Spain listing them as Secretaries ( Like Obama and Michelle did)


Even in college, Donald Trump was brash
PHILADELPHIA — The new student arrived at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton business school in 1966, driving a Ford convertible and sporting a mop of blond hair as outsized as his ambitions. A junior transfer from Fordham University in the Bronx, the young man was an outsider on the Ivy League campus in Philadelphia, with few friends.

But that did not temper his swagger.

When a professor asked students in his small class why they had chosen to study real estate, the new student stood up.

“I’m going to be the king of New York real estate.”

The professor peered over his glasses and said, “What’s your name, son?”

Trump’s surge is historic

Trump is the personification of a 21st-century America fascinated by the super rich and obsessed with celebrity, historians said.

We’ve seen Trump’s theatrics on TV
Trump spectacle comes at a cost

“I am Donald Trump.”

Some of the other students rolled their eyes.

“Sit down, you [expletive],” Louis Calomaris recalled thinking, with a laugh. “That was our introduction to Donald Trump.”

The brash, blunt, and sometimes bombastic personality that has helped Trump upend the early stages of the 2016 Republican presidential primary campaign — and which has been a hallmark of his business and reality TV entertainment careers — was already in full bloom during his college years, according to more than a dozen Wharton classmates interviewed by the Globe.

“I recognize this person,” said Joseph Cohen, who was in Trump’s tightknit group of real estate students. “He was certainly verbal, and unequivocal. If he had something to say, he said it. Like he says today.”

Calomaris agreed, “The same style, same outspokenness, same braggadocio. It’s quintessentially Don.”

Forthrightness valued

Even before arriving on the leafy campus at the University of Pennsylvania, Trump had some cause for confidence. During his high school years at New York Military Academy, a boarding school for boys 60 miles north of Manhattan, he stood out as an athlete, pitching for the baseball team and playing tight end on the football team. He also played soccer on a team dominated by students from Latin America, and was voted class “Ladies Man’’ by his all-male peers.

Among his duties was storing and maintaining the M1 rifles for the cadets on his dorm floor. He was so meticulous about cleanliness that one former roommate remembers him folding his underwear into squares and stacking them neatly on the shelf.

Some of his childhood friends said Trump’s blunt speaking style may be rooted in his years at the military academy, where he was sent at age 13 after some disciplinary issues. (He punched his second-grade music teacher, he wrote in a 1987 book, because he didn’t think the teacher knew enough about music.)

“Honesty and straightforwardness was the rule of law” at the academy, said Ted Levine, one of Trump’s high school roommates who now runs a packaging and supply company in New Jersey. “It got ingrained in us that you don’t lie, cheat or steal, or tolerate those who do . . . You just say the way it is.”

During rides home from school on a Port Authority bus, the young Donald would point out all the buildings built by his father, Fred Trump, a well-known developer who specialized in apartment complexes.

“We’d go through Queens and he’d say, ‘My dad, he built all those homes over there,’ ” said Specht, a Trump classmate in high school as well as at Wharton who went on to a career in investment banking. “He’d look out, very proud.”

Trump said in the interview that it was his having spent so much time away from home that led him not to apply to Wharton as a freshman. Instead, he spent his first two college years living at home in Queens and commuting to Fordham.

“I had very good marks. And I was a good student generally speaking,” Trump said. “But I wanted to be home for a couple of years because I was away for five years. So I wanted to spend time home, get to know my family — when you’re away, you’re away right?”

After two years at Fordham, “I got in quickly and easily” to the Wharton undergraduate program, Donald Trump said.

After two years at Fordham, “I got in quickly and easily” to the Wharton undergraduate program, Trump said. “And it’s one of the hardest schools to get into in the country — always has been.”

Around the time Trump was admitted, there were 8,000 candidates vying for 1,700 spots in the freshman class, according to school records. The process could be more difficult for transfer students like Trump. Tuition was $1,770 for the academic year.

Flipped properties in college

Trump arrived on a campus dotted with elm trees and featuring a prominent statue of Benjamin Franklin, surrounded by a combustible and violent city. The campus was gripped by anger over the Vietnam War. Trump received draft deferments while in college and, just after graduation, he was granted a medical deferment for what Trump has since said was bone spurs in his heels.

Trump said he did not participate with his fellow Penn students in antiwar demonstrations. “I wasn’t a fan of the Vietnam War, that I can tell you,” he said. “But I wasn’t a marcher.”

Trump rented an apartment close to campus in a four-story row house that a fellow tenant remembers being infested with cockroaches. The area was so run down that a burned-out car sat out front for weeks before the city finally removed it.

His senior year, Trump lived a few blocks away in an old building about to be condemned and torn down. The rooms were small, with little more than a bed, a closet, and a kitchenette with a small refrigerator and a two-burner stove. It sat across from a popular bar called the Bull and Barrel that offered hamburger specials for 20 cents.

“They weren’t great,” Trump says of his accommodations. “They were old townhouses with 12 units in each, small units.”

He drove a green Ford Fairlane convertible, and had a fondness for fried oysters from an off-campus Howard Johnson’s. He stuck out by carrying a briefcase on campus while most students toted books under their arms.

“I could tell he was different,” said Ted Pollard, who transferred to Wharton the same year as Trump and later founded a health information company. “We were all preppies in our tweed coats and polka dot ties. He was dressed up in a nice sports coat and jacket. He was just more businesslike.”

“He was cut from a different cloth, and it was quite obvious,” he added. “He was more aloof. More focused than we were . . . We were wondering what we wanted to do when we grow up. He was already there.”

Trump had one clear advantage over his peers: a financial head start from his father. With about $2 million in loans from his dad, he confirmed, he started buying up properties in Philadelphia soon after he arrived at Wharton.

“It’s always been a natural instinct,” he said. “I would fix up houses, fix up little buildings. Fix them up and sell them, rent them and live in them, and do all sorts of things with them. Made a little money during college.”

In a review of Philadelphia property records in the 1960s, the Globe couldn’t locate any with Trump’s name, but he said that even then he used aliases to hide his involvement.

“I didn’t want people to know I was buying, because I started to develop a good reputation for being a good buyer,” he said. “Once they start knowing your name, the price goes up. So I would use corporate names or I would use different names. I developed a little reputation for making good deals and I didn’t want them to charge me. If they knew my name, they would have charged me more money. Some things never change.”

Trump said his good track record of flipping properties pleased his father.

“He was always impressed — he was a strong guy, my father — he was always impressed I never failed. I would always buy them and sell them for more than I bought them for.’’

Trump was named entrepreneur of the year by Wharton in 1984, he was on the school’s oversight board in 1987, and his photo used to hang on a Hall of Fame wall honoring highly successful alumni (it was stolen in 1991, according to the school newspaper, and a spokesman for the school said he is not aware of any current Hall of Fame).

But there is no physical reminder on campus of Trump’s presence there, in part because he has not donated enough.

“I may at some point. I have great feeling for the school,” Trump said. “It’s something I could conceivably do. I’ve donated, but nothing very substantial.”

Poised to build an empire

On graduation day, Trump and his Wharton classmates were seated near the front of the auditorium. The commencement address was given by William S. Paley, a Wharton alum who was a pioneer at CBS in a medium that Trump would later master: television.

Trump, dressed in a black gown and yellow sash, paused with his father outside a granite building for a photo. Fred Trump is beaming, and his son would soon begin working with his father, building his own real estate empire.

Trump would attempt to become, as he said when he first arrived on campus, the next Bill Zeckendorf, a legendary Manhattan developer known for flamboyance.

“The weather was beautiful, my parents were there, and it was a nice day,” Donald Trump remembers. “You graduate from a great school. I did well. That was the beginning right? The real beginning was that day. It was terrific.”




When you are not beholden to the POWER BROKERS in the establishment that till now has decided the WINNERS AND LOSERS.... THE BITCH AND WHINE AND SEEK TO DESTROY THE USURPER!

The Media has become petty and shrill and bitchy and it sick to watch so called People who are supposed to give opinions in a dignified manner become overzealous harpies who attack Donald Trump because in their wildest wet dreams they never imagined Trump taking the Country by storm, and his ascendancy could disrupt their income stream. Who would tune in to hear everything is going great for America??

So they are hammering him at FOX.. day in and day out. Only Sean Hannity seems to be fair with Donald Trump.

Look unlike all the other "begging bowl" Conservatives and Democrat candidates, who have to kiss ass to appease donors and special interest groups and lobbyists just to make sure they have money to stay relevant, TRUMP DOES NOT HAVE TO BEG FOR AIR TIME OR FOR DONORS..

So he is not beholden to anyone. Boy does that piss off the CONTROL FREAKS IN MEDIA AND THE TALKING HEAD ESTABLISHMENT.

Screw Rich Lowrey and George Will and Megyn Kelly and Krauthammer. They earn a living by sitting in front of a Camera, Radio or Lap tap and spouting NOTHING that ever actually created anything. Like a Car or an engine or building or a widget or even Software.

THEY SELL "ETHER BULLSHIT"... ALSO KNOW AS HOT AIR and their "Why America is bad" books that they expect us to buy!


Screw their Talking heads, dump their books and ignore their sponsors!

Art is the secret handshake of the children of God, the inside joke among those with souls...
I believe we are all Souls/Spiritual energy, created by God in his image, having a human experience, possibly to correct past errors in judgment. A lot of people have that mixed up and think it's the other way around... SOMETIMES I SITS AND THINKS AND SOMETIMES I JUST PAINTS AND THINKS… When we were created and entered this earth we were put here to meet our loved ones, our friends, our eternal family, to find the most important one, to start life all over again with different experiences, to correct past experiences, build new ones, same soul different being?  As the shell was being formed we received the expression of God’s intent and vision for our new life, sight, and hearing, thought and speech, intelligence and emotions, will and desire, personality, and identity. We received a soul. Without the soul, we are a computer without software.  Can we overcome our past experiences, do we dare take chances, a different path, that leads to rewards which can help with a better life or (the soon-to-be tomorrow?)  The beauty of a man or woman is not in their facial features but reflected in their soul. It is the caring that they lovingly give and the passion they show. They are an evolved soul. Steps ahead of the narcissistic lying psychopaths, who can be very charming, but who, in the end, have all the depth of a gnat.  The beauty of the evolved soul grows with the passing years.  It's wonderful and beautiful if/when you find someone that is in love with your mind. Someone that wants to undress your conscience and make love to your thoughts. Someone that wants to watch you slowly take down all the walls you've built up around your mind and let them inside. It's not about the shell.  It's about being a friend.  "A friend is a person with whom I may be sincere.  Before him I may think aloud..." Emerson

“A soulmate is an ongoing connection with another individual that the soul picks up again in various times and places over lifetimes. We are attracted to another person at a soul level not because that person is our unique complement, but because by being with that individual, we are somehow provided with an impetus to become whole ourselves.” Edgar Cayce

SOMETIMES I THINKS...  I'm Breathing...  I'm Alive...  I'm Blessed...  God Is Good!  I've come to realize that the only people I need in my life are the ones who need me in theirs even when I have nothing else to offer but myself and friendship...   SOMETIMES I THINKS... It feels better not to talk. At all. About anything. To anyone.  SOMETIMES I change my mind... SOMETIMES I THINKS it's fine... ♫♪Music♪♫  ٩(˘◡˘)۶    “Without Music life would be a mistake.”  ¸ ¸. ✶ * ♪ ♫ . ¸ ¸.   

Never seen nothing like this before... Love this song! 
BB King & Gary Moore - The Thrill Is Gone   This falls into the realm of the divine... Life would be a mistake without music! 
 Love, ٩(˘◡˘)۶ ME!  More Bob Dylan...  Emotionally Yours...  Come baby, find me, come baby, remind me of where I once begun. Come baby, show me, show me you know me, tell me you're the one. 
Love the Eagles ٩(˘◡˘)۶ !  No More Cloudy Days if I ever find this guy I'm a goner... Baby, I would never make you cry.  I would never make you blue.  I would never let you down.  I would never be untrue. 
Junior Wells - I'll Take Care Of You... 

I am a Christian First and Foremost... A Mackerel Snapper...    ٩(˘◡˘)۶  A Roman Catholic and aware of all the flaws.  The basics of dogma and the churches many flaws have been worked out with my daily talks betwixt God and Me.  Having very,very, serious doubts about Pope Francis...  Psalm 25: “Take not away my soul, O God, with the wicked: nor my life with blood thirsty men. In whose hands are iniquities, their right hand is filled with gifts.”   I truly miss Pope Benedict XVI and pray for his return.

The older I get, the smarter I get, sorta, kinda.  Looking at history it seems that since at least the 20th century all global struggles are really about a belief in God, Judeo-Christianity, it's value system, teaching, and just about everything else.  The opening of the United States Declaration of Independence states as follows:  We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed;...  The United States of America is the only country in history to have defined itself as Judeo-Christian. The west's value system comes from Judeo-Christianity, with communism/socialism/liberalism/obamism being the removal of it. I still remember when Democrat's booed God, It was a shock and an eye-opener... The middle east wants to spread Islamic values. Islam is a warrior religion of aggression and cruelty all done in the name of Islam. Massive destruction of Christians and non-believers is its true nature…  War is expected from political entities, not from a religion.  Almost every major African conflict has a tie to Islam or Christianity. Spreading capitalism or westernizing countries are simply making them adopt Judeo-Christian concepts. Which I totally agree with.

DID YOU KNOW... 1st Bible printed in English in America was in 1782 by the approval of U.S. Congress for use in our public schools! 
DID YOU KNOW... In 1857 the U.S. Capitol Building was the largest church in the United States with over 2000 people attending per week! 
DID YOU KNOW...America's Founders never placed the words 'separation of church and state' in any of our official Founding documents! 

Immorality is un-American, and a threat to National Security.  All the Islamic Muslim Terrorists, all the Communists, all the Joseph Stalins, all the Adolf Hitlers, all the BathHouseBattyBarackINSANEObamas, rolled into one isn't nearly the threat to National Security as immorality is, Abortion is on the top of the list.  ABORTION IS EVIL and doesn't make you un-pregnant.  Your choice of abortion makes you the Mother who killed her child.   That leaves The Father, Sister, Brother, Grandparent, Aunt, Uncle, Cousin...of a Dead Baby.   The big problem is and has been the indoctrination of our young with thought presenting the government's version of reality they wish them to see in school, then encouraging them to be and accept their evil. The indoctrination of Me! Me! Me! I Want! Want! Want!  Unfortunately, after participating in evil they realize exactly what they have done, they suffer the guilt and horror of their actions for the rest of their lives.  The whole family suffers... Now you have to live with the fact that your child has probably been painfully murdered, tortured and chopped up Dr.Mengele style and sold for body parts by Planned Parenthood.  

Topics I like. Love, and Ideas for the intellectually inclined: Art, Sculpture, Photography, Religion, God The Father, Son And Holy Spirit...  Physics, Science, The Theory Of Everything, Politics, Genealogy, Grandchildren, Gardening, are just the tip of the iceberg.  Love, Love, Love Music, Painting, Sculpture, Reading, old movies, computer, sewing, and crochet. I would like to make and read everything before I die. 

My Country Tis Of Thee...  I can't really slap a label across my head but... I guess you could call me very, very, very Conservative and now very disenchanted about having to vote Republican.  I'm more of a leave-me-the-hell-alone-ist!  I belonged to the Libertarian Party at one time, but they were and are too Liberal. I would never ever vote for Communism or a Nazicrat. I think I still have very, very, minor Libertarian leanings. I like Ted Cruz.  Christians and Jews had better unite and vote against those who promote [Libidiots & DemoRAT's] Islamic/Muslim Brotherhood Terrorists.  Trey Goudy would be a perfect Supreme Court Justice, so would Thomas Sowell.  I am a purest when it comes to the Constitution. Definitely not a "living document." It is "the law" that America was founded on! A Nation established for "We The People", under God, with liberty and justice for all. Most of our law is based on the Ten Commandments, God's law. The law for mankind. Something to think about changing... 
"We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force."  ~ Ayn Rand

Things That Aren't Really That Important But Will Say Them Anyhow: Unless you circle me and/or I circle you back, you don't get to see any photo's or +1's  Also Important: Fuggedaboutit!  I do not do Hangouts or Video Chats with Anyone EVAH!!!!   Outside of my family and a few friends, I am an introvert. I would have been, and could be a complete loner. I believe in the power of prayer. Cantankerous. Persnickety. Lovable. Kind. Enjoy company sometimes.  Not looking for anything from anyone, but, If you have depth, emotion, a strong mind, an interesting mind, a touch of odd [I call it Soulshine or Intelligence], can make me think and smile… I will follow you back…. If I discover you are dishonest, untrustworthy, a liar, or playing me, I will block you in a heartbeat, no matter how much I care for you ٩(˘◡˘)۶  If I really care about you don't worry I will probably unblock you after I calm down unless you are a narcissistic psychopath ツ 

My Favorite Quotes:  “Adore God. Reverence and cherish your parents. Love your neighbor as yourself, and your country more than yourself. Be just. Be true. Murmur not at the ways of Providence.” —Thomas Jefferson 

"Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.” - Arthur Conan Doyle 

“My importance to the world is relatively small. On the other hand, my importance to myself is tremendous. I am all I have to work with, to play with, to suffer and to enjoy. It is not the eyes of others that I am wary of, but of my own. I do not intend to let myself down more than I can possibly help, and I find that the fewer illusions I have about myself or the world around me, the better company I am for myself.”  ― Noël Coward 

"We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we are really not alone. ~Orson Welles 

“A friend is a person with whom I may be sincere. Before him I may think aloud. I am arrived at last in the presence of a man so real and equal, that I may drop even those undermost garments of dissimulation, courtesy, and second thought, which men never put off, and may deal with him with the simplicity and wholeness with which one chemical atom meets another.” Ralph Waldo EmersonEssays: First Series

"Having resentment is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die" -- Malachy McCourt 

"Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names." - John F. Kennedy 

 “There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.  Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens?  What's there in that for anyone?  But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted and you create a nation of law-breakers -- and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system.” —Ayn Rand  

 “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” - John Adams 

Hate Crimes are a horrific, Orwellian tool of the left that exist solely to punish people for thinking the wrong way.  Declaring "thought" as a new crime against a privileged class of people based on their choice of behavior is just the beginning of what is to destroy America. ~Unknown 

Man has always sacrificed truth to his vanity, comfort and advantage. He lives... by make-believe. ~W. Somerset Maugham, The Summing Up, 1938 

 We can ignore reality, but we cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality ~ Ayn Rand 

Every truth passes through three stages before it is recognized. In the first, it is ridiculed, in the second it is opposed, in the third it is regarded as self-evident. ~Arthur Schopenhauer 

My experiences with science led me to God. To be forced to believe only one conclusion that everything in the universe happened by chance would violate the very objectivity of science, itself. Certainly, there are those who argue that the universe evolved out of a random process, but what random process could produce the brain of a man or the system of the human eye? Some people say science has been unable to prove the existence of God, but must we really light a candle to see the sun?” – Wernher Von Braun, Rocket Scientist 1912-1977.

Socialism will not help the poor. Rather it reduces everyone to the same lowest common denominator of poverty and misery, while at the same time drying up the very sources of capital. ~ Pope Leo XIII

“Prior to capitalism, the way people amassed great wealth was by looting, plundering and enslaving their fellow man. Capitalism made it possible to become wealthy by serving your fellow man.” ― Walter E. Williams 

“A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”  ― Marcus Tullius Cicero 

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be 'cured' against one's will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals. But to be punished, however severely, because we have deserved it, because we 'ought to have known better,' is to be treated as a human person made in God's image." - C.S. Lewis 

"There are 100 billion stars in the Milky Way galaxy, roughly the same as the number of neurons in our brain. You may have to travel twenty-four trillion miles, to the first star outside our solar system, to find an object as complex as what is sitting on your shoulders. The mind and the universe pose the greatest scientific challenge of all, but they also share a curious relationship. On one hand, they are polar opposites. One is concerned with the vastness of outer space, where we encounter strange denizens like black holes, exploding stars, and colliding galaxies. The other is concerned with inner space, where we find our most intimate and private hopes and desires. The mind is no farther than our next thought, yet we are often clueless when asked to articulate and explain it."  — Dr. Michio Kaku, THE FUTURE OF THE MIND: The Scientific Quest to Understand, Enhance, and Empower the Mind 

“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail” -Benjamin Franklin 

"Life is hard; it's harder if you're stupid" -John Wayne 

“It is amazing that people who think we cannot afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, and medication somehow think that we can afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, medication and a government bureaucracy to administer it.” ~Thomas Sowell
