Election Day Votes

Issue

Happy daze are here again, so let us hope there is no suspicious activity surrounding this one and while today's races may not have anywhere near the buzz as a presidential election, there are plenty seats and important issues at stake.

Voters from many cities and states around this great country will vote for their chosen local representatives, while New Jersey and Virginia will choose their next governors. The battle for Virginia's governor will be of particular interest as many are calling it a bellwether for Trump's impact on midterm elections in 2018.

Good God Almighty?

Why did innocence meet a sad and sudden death at yet another American church? At least 26 men, women, and children were massacred inside a small community church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, yesterday when a lone gunman entered during morning prayers and opened fire with an automatic weapon.

This madness has to stop before any more innocent Americans die. They are calling it a human mistake. Air Force Error Allowed Texas Gunman to Buy Weapons https://nyti.ms/2j7nUwD

Stop The Madness

Why does any sports enthusiast need an assault weapon? Too many rifles have been used for hunting down innocent lives in the last five years alone.

I attended a neighbor's memorial services this weekend. I expected to be safe in a place of worship. Are we no longer secure in the house of The Lord? How did so many defenseless people lose their lives when a gunman carrying an assault rifle kills 26 at small community church?

They work for all of US. Congress and @POTUS must DO SOMETHING NOW!

Contact your representatives and let them know what you want and need from them TODAY.

The Trump Card?

Idea

Is POTUS really willing to meet with North Korea's Kim Jong-un after a US Pentagon warning that only an invasion can disarm the rogue leader?

Sunday Church Massacre

Problem

A madman opened fire inside a small town Texas church, killing more than two dozen people. The armor-clad gunman shot churchgoers inside a rural Texas church during Sunday services, killing 26 people.

This is the largest mass shooting in the state's history, according to public safety officials.

Twenty-six people were killed during the shooting at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

It was 9 years ago today, that Barack Obama was elected the first African-American President of the United States. Barack Hussein Obama II is an American politician who served two terms as the 44th President of the United States from 2009 to 2017. He is the first African American to have served our nation.

Life Imitating Art

Issue

It has been said that life imitates art. A philosophical position that holds the direct opposite of Aristotelian mimesis. Its most notable proponent was Oscar Wilde, who in his 1889 essay The Decay of Lying that, "Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life" https://prezi.com/lzfjdxdrtuum/the-decay-of-lying-a-close-reading-of-osc...

Everyday life is full of real news, not fake as we have been continually and repeatedly told. Just because someone won't admit they are wrong when they've made mistakes or does not like it when they are caught doing something unethical, or illegal and deny it claiming its fake news doesn't make it so.

Life is full of uplifting, and improbable tales. Some of which are athletic events which have a tendency of healing communities and countries devastated by heavy losses or reeling from a major political upheaval.

Some films are produced based-on-true-events, like the major motion picture "Invictus" https://youtu.be/wKlNQ2YVLck and there are so many other true-life stories celebrating the enduring ideal of an inspirational underdog.

However, for those who do not believe in miracles, allow me to show you the following real news documentaries. This will remind you of a day the cold war was fought between democracy and communism as it played out by our amazing hockey team. The American Eagle beat the Russian bear. It's considered by many to be the greatest sports moment of the 20th century. The Miracle on Ice occurred in 1980 when the USA beat Russia. America did it once and we will do it again. https://youtu.be/f-K-mm8Bqik

There are other unforgettable, heart-stopping moments in my own life, like when NY METS baseball star Mike Piazza’s slammed a monumental home run against Atlanta Braves at Shea Stadium in 2001, as 40,000 disbelieving and amazed fans wept tears of joy just days after 9/11. Mike Piazza's post-9/11 homer helps NY heal https://youtu.be/hQhH6yZ8lxw This is when a sporting life is capable of awing and uniting all of us at the same time.

Most recently, when the Astros won the World Series of Baseball for the first time ever after a devastating hurricane hit Houston. http://www.houstonchronicle.com/sports/astros/article/2005-Astros-share-...

The explanation why The NYC Marathon goes on as scheduled just days after another act of terror was carried out in NYC. Security ramps up in NYC ahead of marathon https://youtu.be/mMY_X_R5kNI

As George Bernard Shaw said 'If history repeats itself, and the unexpected always happens, how incapable must man be of learning from experience.' Do you remember which nation had their athletes disqualified for doping? Can we learn the lesson of The Olympics in Sochi that shows us Russians cheat and when they get caught, they will not admit it and will continue denying it?

It was standing room only for Jay Howard's City Island memorial service at Trinity Church. The 76-year-old may have lost his battle with cancer, but he will not be forgotten. Our thoughts and prayers go to his widow, Norma and all the members of his extended family.

Jay Howard loved angels and he really was a guardian angel in City Island according to those who spoke and echoed these sentiments saying City Island will never be the same, or Jay was a rock for our community center, Trinity church and so much more.

Coffee Boy Spills The Beans

Problem

George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty for lying to federal agents about contacts with Russians in 2016 while having a starring role as a foreign-policy surrogate for Donald Trump. You don't allow someone at that table if they are low-level staffers and the images confirm that action speaks louder than words.

POTUS, who says he has a great memory now claims he does not remember him. Papadopoulos has been called a coffee boy, but could he be more a Covfefe?

President Trump on March 2016 meeting with George Papadopoulos: “I don’t remember much about that meeting.” http://cnn.it/2A2v9t9
