Another 4 letter word: Love
Last night, my honey and I sat down to watch President Obama give his State of the Union Speech, and this morning I feel better than I have in a long, long time.But I knew even before-hand that this would be a momentous and game-changing speech. How, you may ask? Well, let me tell you!
I should tell you that I live in the Boston area, and a few months before Obama's election, a reporter named Marjory Eagan wrote a column stating that all these women had contacted her with the odd story of having had a sexual dream about Barack Obama! Yes, her e-mail was flooded with women who had all had the same dream...maybe not in detail, but in content.
And, lo and behold, I too had had a dream about the soon-to-be President! But it was not sexual in nature...not at all.
My dream was of Barack Obama and myself sitting at a table in a little diner. It was dark, and there was a candle on the table between us. After a few moment of just eye contact, Mr. Obama reached across the table and handed me a piece of paper which had 4 lines written on it, in poetry form. I can't remember the exact words, but it was something about planting seeds and they will grow. Something about soil and earth and renewal......
When I woke up, there was a great feeling of peace, and "everything will be allright".
So, when I heard that other women had had dreams of Obama, it was one of those strange moments in time. I knew there was something auspicious about him. Something magical. Something pre-ordained.
And I'm no eternal optimist, believe me. I have been so down on this country since Bush and Cheney were in charge. I am no Pollyanna either, believing there is good in everybody. I know better than that. But there is something about Barack Obama that is "un-catchable", something child-like and trusting behind the wisdom. I wonder that his mother must have put some very strong caring qualities in him at an early age.
I came to listen and observe him very carefully from then on. One little trick I like to do is turn the sound off on the tv and just watch when a person is talking--see how they move, their facial expressions, their little oddities of behavior...
And with Obama, there is no doubt he has a great smile...and a great laugh too. This tells me a lot on a personal level, as nothing is more important than laughter. And a positive glow just shines from him.
Well, so-- not too much longer after that, I was blogging on the local blog and we were talking about Obama. The song "Let it Grow" by Eric Clapton suddenly popped into my head, and it was then that the gist of my dream hit me! I understood what Obama was trying to tell me.
It's in the words of the song itself:
"Time is getting shorter and there's much for you to do.
Only ask and you will get what you are needing,
The rest is up to you.
Plant your love and let it grow."
The answer to our dilemma in this world is to love! Plant your love as a seed, nurture it, and it will grow. It's the same message Jesus sent. Same message Ghandi sent. Same message Martin Luther King and Malcolm X at the end of his life sent. It's what we all used to learn long ago. Love is the answer. All you need is Love. Remember?
It was then that I knew that the 60's vibe IS back. We have a golden opportunity here and now to choose a new way of operating in the world.
And I read all the negatives, all the accusations, all the dire warnings about Obama. But I just don't believe them. My heart and my intuition tell me different.
It's time for us to reclaim what was killed the last time around by the barrels of Industrial Guns. It's time to remember what the 60's stood for before the agents of the dark side infiltrated and destroyed all that was good....and murdered many a good fighter for truth, justice and love.
The difference now is that we are the agents of infiltration. We are the ones operating in secret in order to destroy the growing cabal. And the best thing about it is they can't touch us. They can't stop a prayer!...a positive thought!...an intention of love!
It's as simple as that. And old as time.

This is how you do it.....not only do we pay more taxes to the fed, we are better at shit.
– According to research data from COVID Act Now, a multidisciplinary team of health experts and leaders, Massachusetts is one of four states on track to contain the COVID-19 outbreak.
Researchers credit the states low infection and positive test rate, available ICU beds, and contact tracing program.
The other three states currently on track to contain the virus and prevent a second outbreak are Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey.
According to the data, Massachusetts is seeing a 2.4 percent positive test rate and people who do test positive for the virus are infecting 0.76 other people.
“Because each person is infecting less than one other person, the total number of current cases in Massachusetts is shrinking,” wrote COVID Act Now researchers.
The state also has roughly 2,000 ICU beds with an estimated 1,295 currently available.
Researchers believe the Commonwealth has enough available ICU beds to absorb a second wave of cases if one happens to hit.
Massachusetts’s contact tracing program has been an effective weapon in the fight against the virus.
The data shows that Massachusetts has 2,500 contact tracers.
Researchers estimate that the contact tracers are likely able to trace 100 percent of the new COVID-19 infections in 48 hours.
“When this level of tracing is coupled with widely available testing, COVID can be contained without restoring lockdowns,” researchers wrote.“
Everywhere I go, people are masked. And I see some pretty nice looking ones....and they look comfortable.

In our land -- of fruited plains and purple mountains’ majesty, of fresh water seas and human loveliness of every hue, we are not subjects of an anointed one. We are citizens. We do not have to have a convulsion of regicide to lead to yet another insecure monarch.
We can vote this monster out of the government. Here, we rule.
Old and young, sick and well, scared and bold, we can rise, ballot in hand, and vote for plain Joe Biden, a decent man who is committed to what is most dear about our land: the notion that we are created equal and endowed with the inalienable rights of life and liberty.”

Cause you do know, those of you who suddenly want to put aside differences, that Trump retweeted a comment that said “Democrats are the enemy of America”, right?
Can you truthfully say you want unity when you support him?
I don’t think so. You’ve picked your side, made your bed. Lie in it.

Leslie McCowen (author) from Cape Cod, USA on February 19, 2020:
See so many people bashing Bloomberg.
These people aren’t:
“Rush, who had endorsed Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) before her exit from the race early last month, said he had been contacted by former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-Mass.) campaigns before he decided to endorse Bloomberg.
“He alone, among the current Democratic candidates, has been the clearest, the most focused, and the most reasonable voice for addressing the depressed state of the African-American economy,” Rush said of Bloomberg in a statement. “His Greenwood Initiative is not only inspirational, it's practical and it's doable.”
“Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has now gained the backing of more than 100 mayors, according to his campaign.
And one of the new names on the growing list of Bloomberg supporters is a familiar one to voters this cycle: He's a former Joe Biden supporter who has flipped over to supporting Bloomberg.
“I scanned the field and originally thought that Joe Biden was the candidate who most closely represented my beliefs," said Kinston, North Carolina, Mayor Don Hardy. "But after hearing what Mike Bloomberg has to say -- on gun safety, economic justice, equity, the environment, health care, the planet -- I changed my mind."
“I first met Mike when I was searching for ways to fight against the dangerous gun laws that ripped my son from my life,” McBath said in a statement. “Mike gave grieving mothers like me a way to stand up and fight back. Nobody running for president has done more for the gun violence prevention movement than Mike.”
Looks like the awful, horrible billionaire has done a lot of good things.....
Class warfare isn’t the issue. Ideological warfare is!

I agree with Carville. Sanders for one, is not a democrat! Stop this game!
Warren has great ideas, but they won’t sell in electoral college land.
My guy is Biden.....solid dem. But......he does have competition with Bloomberg. Bloomberg can get the Republicans who’d rather not vote for Tramp.
Lots of mayors are backing him, as is Bobby Rush.
And pulllease! To say dems have moved left is ridiculous! They've had to move right! Remember Roosevelt’s “peoples bill of rights”.....MLK’s “poor people’s march” with Yang’s freedom dividend?
No, Clinton moved them right....and they had to.
He, like Obama, was pragmatic. You can’t have everything! But if you want anything, you’d better include the heartland dems, who will turn on you on a dime...*cough!*
Both Biden and Bloomberg can get frustrated Repubs.....and Indies. It’s highly doubtful Sanders and Warren can.....because most Indies lean right, imo.
It’s why they are small......they can’t get left and right to agree together. And why Sanders siphons off dems. Grrrrr
Dems better listen to Carville......*please**please**please*

Rick Wilson says if you nominate Sanders, you’ll lose 45 states.
He’s made a career of making republicans the primary force in gvt they are.
Listen to him.
—Union members fought hard for their healthcare benefits.....they don’t want to give them up for state care.
—Socialism, tax and spend, taking your money....etc etc....and people on twitter say trump (thanks to Putin) has some very very damaging tapes of sanders. Remember, he’s compromised, too.
—his ties with the nra are real. Twice they helped him win an election.
—There are pro life democrats....sanders is not a Christian.
He won’t win, and if you want trump out..... don’t choose sanders!

3. Background checks on private transfers

A cabal of rich men tried to get the military to take out this man with these ideas....Smedley Butler stopped them.
They wanted to do it to Obama, too. This march on Washington they were planning, to force him out. Never happened, but the menacing attitude never left. Ever. “Lock her up”
They can’t stand sharing. Anything. And they have co-opted America to the point where poor people will fight so rich can rip them off!
Not me. I still remember a kind, caring America. Yes I know there have always been rascals and racism and hatred. But I know we were better than this!
Nancy Pelosi is reminding me of that. Obama did. Hillary did.
And so did John McCain.
As long as I live, I will fight for the kind, caring Americ that I was priveledged to know.
And sorry, these billionaires, who hornswaggled you all into thinking they have got away with it will have to take a spanking.

“An interesting question from @YouGovUS. Democrats want a candidate for Congress who is more like Obama than Bernie by 54-29.”
Stop pushing Sanders as a democrat. He’s not. Real dems don’t hate Hillary.

Holy Moly.....look at Obama's new portrait!! It's like my dream!
"My dream was of Barack Obama and myself sitting at a table in a little diner. It was dark, and there was a candle on the table between us. After a few moment of just eye contact, Mr. Obama reached across the table and handed me a piece of paper which had 4 lines written on it, in poetry form. I can't remember the exact words, but it was something about planting seeds and they will grow. Something about soil and earth and renewal......
When I woke up, there was a great feeling of peace, and "everything will be allright".
Let it Grow, by Eric Clapton.....

Democrats better realize we are not amused with their shenanigans either.
If they put up Gillibrand, I cannot do it. I will not vote for her.
Ruining a person's reputation on a lie is just as bad as supporting a person with a horrible reputation.
That stunt you pulled on Franken makes me want to scream. And all for political gain for women?
That's not gain. You gave in to the worst type of right wing tactics.
That makes you weak and unprincipled, Senator.
As Al said, there is a war on truth going on.
Dam sure not keeping alliance with those who are part of it.
2018....the year of the dog. You know what that means. Loyalty. Unconditional love for friends....but sniffing out enemies.
Don't care about these political climbers....we should be loyal to the ideals of America, and those who LIVE BY THEM.

For all you people who say dems and repubs are all the same....
Dem sexual assaulter Weinstein is ruined.
Repub sexual assaulter Trump is prez.

Oh and you trumpees who wore t-shirts with trump holding hillarys head and calling her c*nt....you can kiss my entire behind!

How about we skip that wall, and use those billions to help flood victims.

That is what youve been preaching, is it not?
We can all agree on this, can we not?

I am a democrat. Hillary clinton was a great candidate to rep my ideals. She did not screw up, she got screwed.
Sanders does not rep me, nor is he a democrat.
Kindly do not speak for me as if you rep all dems.
I want nothing to do with the teaparty bernie bros and broettes.
Its so insulting to hear an independent cheered while browbeating the dem.
Clinton and sanders were aligned 97% of their platform.
How is it anyone gets to say shes not progressive?
Ill tell you. 30 years of bad-mouthing from the rabid right, And 1 year bad-mouthing from sanders and jill stein; both agents of moscow.

speaking of wikileaks....what happened to mrs wikileaks?
everyday for a year here there was a new three or four wiki posts or breitbart meme. so much so that a fellow hubber congratulated her on helping get trump elected!!
what happened to that??

for everybody here who spent the last 8 yrs decrying obamas drone strikes, here is one for you:
"trumps yemen raid killed 23 civilians, including 10 children. pregnant woman shot in stomache, baby later died"
not to mention, the navy seal who died, who im sure youll never forget.

personally, i think they will be sorry they EVER started.

dear Sanders supporters.....here is your problem: Sanders is an independent who caucused w the dems. he used the dem party to try and win presidency. you do not now get to be angry at the dems for picking the dem!!!
you do not get to tell them they're not democrat enough or left enough to please you.
you should have become indie and Sanders should have had the guts to stay one.
instead, he used words against the dem, which Dumpy the fascist is repeating all over america.
and where are his tax returns? Jane still working on them?
young people my azz. the techies should understand who will butter their bread. and everyone railing against the tpp,there is the other side of the story. I heard a person in adm say it would be 100 times worse if we are not involved and in the mix.
Herbert walker Bush gave us away a long time ago. all we can do now is mitigate the damage.
and I hope you enjoy Dumpy using Sanders words against Hillary to scam the young people into voting for the new inquisition.
Leslie McCowen (author) from Cape Cod, USA on March 30, 2016:
You know the old saying what comes around goes around....
I have to say Sanders spokesman Weaver is a real nasty one. Same nasty attitude Sarandon has towards Clinton.
But we know all about Clinton. The good, the bad and the ugly.
We haven't heard the Sanders bad yet. And you know what?
This guy is playing a game. Yes, he talks a great one, but why is it I listened to every single Vermont resident running for Senate against him call him a corporate sell out?
Well, it's going to come out if and when the media decides to do it. Because it's there.
And i wonder if the media is waiting....letting him crow on his victories, his crowds, the real "man of the people" schpeel that America loves.
Because they must know.
He only released a tax return for one year.
All his assets are in wife's name.
He received mysterious 10 million dollar donation from DC, and has been warned twice by FEC for campaign shenanigans.
I feel we are being duped. Duped and taken for a ride by an ego, just like Trump.
This guy Sanders raises and spends more money than anyone.
And he's not a Democrat. His supporters really hate the democrat running, yet use the party she represents.
Well, maybe he's not a regular guy, either. Maybe he's quite wealthy himself. Not billionaire class, for sure, but millionaire quite possibly.
His campaign is rapidly going the trash Clinton route, and I can't help but see that rotten scoundrel Rove smiling in the background. Letting Sanders help do the dirty work against his arch nemesis the Clintons.
Laying waste to the Democratic party at the same time.
You don't like the status quo?
Think you'll burn it down and get what?
Barack Obama was against Citizens United, spoke against it in a national speech!
What happened to him?
Those right wing creeps in professional politics are salivating for a Sanders win. And i fear his ego is running away....who will prop him up after its burned down?
Don't expect a lot of support, after you've trashed everyone you claim to be a part of.
He's hiding things. That can only bode for trouble.
I think they're waiting for the right moment to attack. After he's destroyed Clinton, they come for him.
You will get your revolution.
*just my opinion*

David Brooks article I Miss Barack Obama....
I'm going to miss him, too. That great smile, and his kindness.
If anyone can show me kindness in the air anymore, I'll be shocked. We are so used to mean!
Heck, there used to be kindness in disagreement, too. Now, if you dont agree, you hate America, not a real American and why don't you leave the country!!!
People probly think a president has to be mean and tough. How tough is it to kick people when they're down?
And how many hearts can u win being mean?
It's such fake bravado. It's so easy to be mean. Anyone who acts like a schoolyard bully is not getting my vote.
Anyone who supports a schoolyard bully: ditto
Someone who shows kindness in the face of power will.

I just have one question....if youre a law abiding, peace loving hunter, why do you need ak 47, 30 shot clips, or vest piercing bullets?
And why are you against baning them? Unless you feel the need to use them one day.
You are the ones demigoguing this issue.
Somehow, taking away AK 47 from public domain is infringing your rights?
And yet, your religion is intimately involved in my personal life. No principles whatsoever!
Leslie McCowen (author) from Cape Cod, USA on January 26, 2016:
Yay yay yay Obama!
Obama bans solitary confinement for juveniles in fed prisons.
Now, lets make it system-wide ban for all prisons everywhere!
G d system put in place by religion. Let inmates "get closer to god", like nuns and monks.
Why so much sadism connected w religion? What about love?
Til Tuesday 'what about love'....great song!

Hmmm. I wonder what Rense and Wiedner think now that Palin endorsed Trump, and he gushed over her?
I know for a fact, they cant stand her.
What "genius"" move is this, besides cow towing to the Baggers for votes?
This, i gotta hear.

"Let's not forget that freedom is more powerful than fear"--Prez Obama
Leslie McCowen (author) from Cape Cod, USA on November 16, 2015:
I for one , am glad Obama is there...and yes, USA better be on high alert.
With Obama, US gvt does not agree that BDS is anti-Semitic, refuses to recognize occupied Golan Heights as belonging to Israel, and has called for a return to pre 1967 borders.
So yeah--we'd better be on alert..as I'm sure Obama is.
A neo-con president most certainly would be playing right into Bibi's hands, like our Congress does.
**and here come the "Jew Hater!" "Anti-Semite" blah blah blah.
I'm an America lover, which means I stand for all people's everywhere. Abuse must stop: Including that being meted out by us.
Break the Chains that bind us.
We are "Give me your poor, your tired, your hungry"....not bomb them to smithereens.
*Semper Fi*...in honor of my uncle, who, like Smedley Butler, saw and realized the horror and futility of war.
Leslie McCowen (author) from Cape Cod, USA on November 13, 2015:
Heard tpp discussed briefly on radio this am. Guy from commerce dpt??? don't remember--a US gvt employee. He said we are not the only country signing partnerships, and it will be much worse without tpp and the protections it offers.
I trust him and I trust Obama. So sue me.
