The Lord (Word) Is With You

“And the Spirit of God came upon Azariah the son of Oded: and said unto him, Hear ye me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin; The Lord is with you , while ye be with him; and if ye seek him, he will be found of you; but if ye forsake him, he will forsake you.” ~II Chronicles 15:1-2

Do you need a reason to meditate and “think on good things”?  This could possibly be it!  John, Chapter 1 teaches that God is Word. And when we focus on that Word that gives life, we win.  Now, here in Chronicles, it alludes to the fact that if we stick with the Word, it will be with us.  Yet, when we move away from the Word, it moves away from us, which technically is all about perspective.  I often think of the Word as being a set of instructions or a recipe.  If you do a, b, c, and d, then your results will be this.  

However, if you do e, f, g, and h, then your results will be that.  We often make things more complicated than they actually have to be.  Today, I encourage you to take the time and effort to rest, meditate and get back to the current moment.  Take it in. Be appreciative to the Most High. Be thankful and glad in knowing that –The Lord is with you.✊🏾

Good Job Georgia

Georgia!  You did it.  All of you pulled together to pick a candidate that will hopefully represent the state well.  Now, we in North Carolina need to finish our job as well.  Getting rid of the Republican majority to help Governor Cooper is the best thing we can do.

My philosophy, it is always better to have and not need; than to need and not have.  Conservatives don’t seem to understand that having liberties to do is a good thing.  Therefore, you can choose to do or not to do a thing.  Restricting access to resources always leads to problems, issues, and subverting the law.  And subversion is usually done by the very people who put the laws in place.

I applaud you for you actions and for the courage you all have shown in overcoming roadblocks Republicans and conservatives intended for your downfall.

…Now if Florida and the rest of the south could…

The Reason I Talk Junk about Democrats is Because, I Want Them to Do Better

I want Democrats to do so much better than they have done over the past 40 years. From what I’ve seen from the majority of Democrats is the willingness to fight against #Progressives and others who might be to the left of them. But that same energy does not exist in fights with Republicans.  

They are more apt to try to prove their conservatism than to show a willingness to vote for progressive legislation for the American people. And then comes the handwringing.

If you learn nothing more, nor do anything else—leave Progressives alone. There is a reason I am no longer a Democrat or Republican. I am not a fan of the two-party modal. It is disturbing to see progressive candidates vilified. I’m also sad to see Progressives and Independents run as Democrats. Please stop. The primaries is technically your time to shine. Even if Republicans and Democrats don’t want to give you oxygen in their rooms, take it! Get online. Use all the social medias. Ask your supporters for a ‘post’ or a ‘re-post’ instead of just going for the cash.  

What candidates want and need is traction. A re-blog or a re-post would both encourage the supporter to learn more about the candidate and show support for the candidate. Two years until the next election, use every second wisely. 

For the record, some of these people in the Democratic Party lost their race in 2022 because people didn’t know where they stood. A Democratic Republican look-a-like isn’t worth electing for many. 

Tim Ryan…? In My Opinion, Ohio Needs Rank Choice Voting like Alaska

By wooing and chasing Republicans, #TimRyan seems like he wants to support #Corporate/#Business America rather than the actual people. 😒 [side eye] Why Tim? You’re looking like a wannabe Republican.  Once you head down that road, it’s hard for some of us to take you seriously.

You do know that the people are the ones who will keep you in office right?  If I were an Independent or Progressive I would not be rushing to the polls to support you.

That is why I think Rank Choice Voting would benefit Ohio greatly.  Not only Ohio though, I think the nation would benefit greatly from a voting system like that.  In essence, you would write down your first, second, and third candidates in the order of your preference.  And, as the votes are tallied, depending on the percentage of votes received someone will eventually emerge that should be a consensus candidate amongst voters.  It might be decided in the 1st round; but most assuredly by the 3rd round.

Alaska recently used rank choice voting to elect Peltola over Palin in their runoff election.  After the election was done, most people seemed to agree that the process was simple and the outcome, fair.  And, Palin walked off into the sunset for the time being.

Let’s consider this type of voting for the entire nation.  Imagine we could technically even the playing field for independent candidates who are not backed by a major political party like the Republicans or Democrats.  People could here their message and decide if they should be given a chance to represent their community or state.  It’s time for change.  Let’s make it happen.

Let’s Take a Look at Distilled and Other types of Water

2 Comments

I was looking up information on WebMD recently about the different types of water.  Certain types of equipment mention using distilled water specifically.  I was surprised at the information I found and thought it would be interesting to share.  Summarily it stated that:

Distilled Water

It’s steam from boiling water that has been cooled and returned to the liquid state.  Salt, minerals and other organic materials have been removed from the boiling process.

Tap Water

This is water that comes straight from the faucet.  It may usually have been disinfected with chlorine and sediments removed.

Filtered Water

Filtered water is tap water that has been strained through filters to remove chlorine and other bacteria based on targeted chemicals.

Purified Water

This is water that is free of microbes and chemicals through the process of reverse osmosis.  This is achieved by forcing water through a membrane to get rid of chemicals, minerals and microbes.  Other methods of purifying water is described in the WebMD article.

Spring Water

Though not specifically discussed in the initial article that the other types of water were mentioned in, Spring Water should definitely be mentioned in this conversation.  Spring Water is also known as Mineral Water…although mineral water can also be made artificially by adding salts and other items back to distilled water.  This water comes from natural springs where moving underground water is used without processing.
