Cheer for Earth Planet!

http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/the-naacp-returns-to-relevance-with-a-vote-on-same-sex-marriage/2012/05/21/gIQAaVpYgU_story.html?wpisrc=nl_opinions

Today, I would have thought there would be bugles, drums, and voices from everywhere - but instead, we just have Eugene Robinson and his "Opinion", which I think is WONDERFULLY THOUGHTFUL! Well, here's a CHEER for our Earth Planet - and, perhaps, many more when others wake-up!

More Control!

http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/role-of-american-capitalism-on-trial/2012/05/20/gIQAj7k2dU_story_1.gmail

This Evening,

I choose "MORE CONTROL" - there are still "TOO" many "BAD" folks around our Earth Planet who JUST WANT IT FOR THEMSELVES!

Its Only You!

I WANT TO SHARE,

For my own thoughtful, thinking mind, as "The Old Goat" goes older, I find this "writing" to be wonderfully interesting - sort of like the simple choices that everyone, from a early child through old age, can "learn" EVERYDAY, OR NOT! It's for "you" to "choose" - no one else can decide for you!

ISN'T IT WONDERFUL?

Simple, yet Complex!

http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/redistricting-moderates-out-of-congress/2012/05/17/gIQA4uu2WU_story.html?wpisrc=nl_opinions

Another Day,

This is "simple", yet "complex", "thinking" - something that each of us SHOULD start the day with, BUT mostly don't want to - because "we" don't have the time for this kind of "thought-thinking"!

Spread The Power!

http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/its-time-to-break-up-the-big-banks/2012/05/15/gIQApOEvQU_story.html?wpisrc=nl_opinions

Yes, and the only way that "power" can be handled around our Earth Planet, is to "spread" the "regular" folks "fairly", as well as the "leaders", so the "balance" stays on the "middle", where sane, thoughtful, thinking needs to be - otherwise, anarchy will come around again, and again, and again, without any "cycle" to be stopped!

Thats Good!

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/05/14/opinion/can-islamists-be-liberals.html?_r=1&nl=opinion&emc=edit_ty_20120514

"...Islamists will become only more moderate when they are not oppressed, and only more pragmatic as they face the responsibility of governing..." - That's Good - The Old Goat!

My Own Thinking...!

http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/05/10/can-physics-and-philosophy-get-along/?nl=opinion&emc=edit_ty_20120511

My own thinking, as I go towards my own time to cut away from my own life - seems fairly simple! I have several thoughts for you to share - if you want it?

***There is a "power" everywhere - "we" all know it is there, "we" do not need to understand it, "we" can just live it until each of us cuts away from there own life!

***There are basic "choices" that each of us have (to more or less) - one of them is to try to be good, instead of bad, to Earth Planet and what it is on and in it!

***There are wonderful new "things" around each of our "corners" that "we" can explore - and there are always more, around another "corner", when "we" have the the expertise to sharpen our "minds" and figure stuff out!

***Our Earth Planet needs help in order to make things work better NOW - lets pick you and me and anyone else that wants to "play" and get into the "game" of life!

The Lifeline!

http://www.npr.org/2012/05/11/152466134/same-bible-different-verdict-on-gay-marriage?ft=3#commentBlock

On The News Everywhere,

All religious, philosophic writings, from every time and place in Earth Planet, have always come from a "human" mind - that has been "translated" from some "other" power, to be understood for "us"! But,there has never been a "link" from that "other" power to "us", except in some "human" minds that decided about faith within there "own" human thinking! The "link" just does not have a "translation" that "we" can "understand" - now, or probably never ever!

For me, it's OK just to try to live as good a life as I can - until I cut my own lifeline, and find out if there is another available!

Its Good!

http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/the-us-governments-outdated-view-of-china/2012/05/10/gIQAUvgaGU_story.html?wpisrc=nl_opinions

To Earth Planet,

WE HAVE ARRIVED - TO EVERYONE, TO EVERYPLACE - THAT'S GOOD!

"...The Internet is the first medium in the history of Communist rule in China that the government has not been able to fully control. The authorities hire hundreds of thousands of police and spend billions of yuan annually monitoring the Web and blocking unwanted messages. Yet for hundreds of millions of Chinese, the Internet continues to grow as a source of uncensored news and platform for popular expression. Regarding Chen, Internet opinion has been overwhelmingly positive..."

We WIN!

http://campaignstops.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/05/09/liberty-and-justice-for-all/?nl=opinion&emc=edit_ty_20120510

A step towards another level of civilization - our USA is trying again! There will be much thought as "we" work through the steps, but it seems that "humanity" will really WIN this time!

Entwined!

http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/obamas-moment-on-gay-marriage/2012/05/08/gIQAjACUBU_story.html?wpisrc=nl_opinions

This is the "twined", between "religion" and "sociology", that must be "entwined" - if "we" ever get over it! It's just simple logic, and civilization good step forward with this - if "we" want to!

Wonderfully Concise!

http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/new-models-will-allow-investigative-journalism-to-thrive/2012/05/07/gIQA8ovEAU_story.html?wpisrc=nl_opinions

Today, Katrina vanden Heuvel, Editor and publisher of the Nation magazine, seems to be wonderfully concise in her writing - the Earth Planet needs much more thoughtful, writing and thinking, if "we" can step forward with the our civilization!

The Presidents Club

Today,

As I am reading this book (The Presidents Club), I am thinking about how Sociology works. "Scientifically", we seem to be going forward to the moon and the stars - while the "Social" matters, in Earth Planet ,seem to be "cycling" around, and around, and around, like a dark, dirty, pool, with no end in sight!

Well, the "choice" is within each persons own mind - "Try Again or Fail", which "choice" will you use?

Your Own Choice!

https://mail.google.com/mail/#inbox/137283517ffd3c4c

"When Religious Leaders Lose Their Faith"

Just for my own thinking, as an Old Goat, faith, religion, atheism, etc., goes with each humans own thinking - regardless of who anyone else might try to change it - unless you want to! That's because no other human can know anymore than you can about this "stuff"!

So, there is huge power that we can feel within each human mind, but we cannot ever really understand behind it! Therefor, each of us humans can make the most of our time in life, or not - it is our own choice!

For me, I choose to do the best that I can, while my mind is still available to try - including helping others in our Earth Planet!

Forward, not Backward!

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/07/charles-barkley-mitt-romn_n_1492697.html?igoogle=1

For ME - I wish that more of these folks (like Charles Barkley) would "chime" in, instead of "muting" out! The Earth Planet needs "progressive", not "conservative" thinking, in order to "explore" forward, not backward!

Balance Again!

http://rendezvous.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/05/06/denouement-in-france/

I think the quotes ("-") are probably correct:


"The present backlash, however, may be driven less by ideology than by a generalized discontent with any government that has failed to live up to expectations," Harvey writes. "That has led some to turn not to the left but also, in the case of France and Greece, to the siren calls of the far right."

But, the amount of "turmoil" from the Earth Planet, SUGGESTS that more of the "regular folks" will TRY AGAIN to BALANCE with THOUGHT instead of ANGER - which would be better for ALL!

The Game Starts Again!

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/05/obama-2012-rallies_n_1483491.html?igoogle=1

Well, the "game" is now on - but, the adversaries started the "war" when Obama was elected 4 years earlier! I guess that there have been many other Presidents (in our USA history) that have had to tackle the "wars" between "conservatives" and "progressives" that seem to go out to the "fringes" instead of thinking and acting for "most", in the "balanced" middle - where sane folks still live - with The Old Goat!

    PAPAFOOTE's Interests:

    About Me: "The Old Goat" Since my Joanna has let go of her life, Charlie (my little companion dog) and I (Papa Foote, "The Traveling Man") were still walking down the "road of live" - smelling the thoughts of the world. But now, since my stroke has started to creep into my old body, my mind is still with the "Eagles Flying Higher" but mostly, I just want to try to squeeze my thinking and writing into just a few words that count towards a better world - like no more anger and selfish thinking that comes from warring between human clans instead of helping each other in our World! My choices are my own - from my inner-self! "Thoughts" Plant Kiindness and Harvest Love Beware of Charlatans* *False expert: Somebody who falsely claims a special skill or expertise - Early 17th century: "to babble, patter," an imitation of the sound of empty talk! Keep Your Mind Open and Balanced Try To Be True To Your Inner-Self "Facts" Some "Facts" are actually truths that we are able to uncover and understand! Some "Facts" are only truths until something changes as we become able to understand more! Some "Facts" will never become truths because we will never be able to understand! "So" That is why the human mind has trouble with "factual conclusions"!
