Speeches, Quotes, & Life Happenings

I didn’t write these.

I cam across these in the last 96 hours & wanted to share.

Dwight D. Eisenhower’s Chance at Peace.

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.
This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. It is two electric power plants, each serving a town of 60,000 population. It is two fine, fully equipped hospitals. It is some fifty miles of concrete pavement. We pay for a single fighter with a half-million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people. . . . This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron

Also Marianne Williamson’s Our Deepest Fear

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.’ We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Hasn’t Changed Much

Good Afternoon & Happy Tuesday,

This entry is coming to you post-lunch because I didn’t have time to do it this morning.

Today is Tuesday 10/02/V3.3 & it is see your Congressman on a main drag in your town.

I got up 92 mins before my 1st shift, that didn’t give me much time to do other stuff.

I took my self in the kitchen & washed some dishes. I don’t know how they got dirty. I called Kim cause she tweeted Call Me Maybe. I obliged & called her maybe, although no one has called me, even though I put the same request out. WHAT’S going on folks, it is the same number that was out there before she wrote that song.

The word of the day is hamartia which is tragic flaw.

Well at 08.00 I went to my 3rd job until about 13.00. I then saw Congressmen Lee Terry walking around the Benson neighborhood.

I’m sitting in the parking lot of my 2nd job, waiting for it to start in 55 hours. Also sharing my points of wisdom that I have gathered since the last post.

Did you know that The Weather Channel & others have decided that they will be naming storms this winter season. Isn’t that a stupid idea or what? I know that you can’t make an honest assumption of this policy, cause I have already told you it was stupid. NO you can either agree with me or disagree with me. Don’t worry, you won’t be banned. I hope Athena isn’t the only storm, if we get to Zeus, WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO? I don’t know how we lived so long in The United States of America without doing this. NO I didn’t finish reading the article, cause as I previously stated. IT IS STUPID

NO one gets banned from The Official Blog of Vernon J.

Well we are over the magic 300 word count, which means nothing. I have unlimited words to share with you. This isn’t another social network’s update, where there is a limit.

My morning is good, my afternoon will be good.

Vernon J out until the next time.

Quotes from the World for Tuesday 10/02/MMXII

What might be taken for a precocious genius is the genius of childhood. When the child grows up, it disappears without a trace. It may happen that this boy will become a real painter some day, or even a great painter. But then he will have to begin everything again, from zero.

Pablo Picasso
Pablo Picasso (1881–1973), Spanish artist. Quoted in Gyula Brassaï, Picasso and Company, p. 86 (1964, trans. 1966).
