Another link for the holidays .

It is not that bleak. Everything seems to be looking up!

I know that the news, press and general tone tries to get us down,

But every measure of happiness seems to be going up.

Hug your kids/wife/husband/neighbor/dog/cat....

Have some love in your life.

My son's best friend was killed on Friday night. He was 17.

He was at our house all the time. Kind of like another son. I saw him 6 hours before he died. My son is wreaked.

Don't miss the chance to love.

Be nice.

It's a matter of brain chemicals if you really look at why some people are doom and why some are positive. I've been depressed and still get it at times, I've also been upbeat and happy enjoying life.

I only go to doom, apocalypse, and get into the negative things when I myself am negative. People who aren't happy with the world and most importantly their lives at the present time will go into doom, even fantasize about it. It expresses in different ways with different people.

Some are Christian and are fixated on the end times, bible prophecies indicating that war and disaster is about to happen. Millions and billions of unbeliever will soon die with only some Christians caught in it, if any, and those all goto heaven to be with the Lord so it's a win/win. The rapture; the Christians get to be with the Lord while the evil world gets brutally tortured and the human race is mostly destroyed. They'd never admit it, but the thought is pleasing. Why would you want to go immediately if you're really enjoying life and want to spread good?

Others are in a darker place mentally and don't mind going because their lives aren't fulfilling, so long as most everyone else goes with them. I like to call it a global suicide bomber of ideas. Some intellectual types will flirt with disaster and doom porn, watching hours of videos and reading pages of material. Then, they formulate long posts laying out what might happen, when and why. Like an educated argument to convince others that it might or will happen. I have to ask what the point or purpose of that really is.

It's like patting someone on the back in real life and saying, "Hey, how are you? I hope you're enjoying your day. You and everyone you care about is going to catastrophically die soon and here's why."

Anti-Trump Vox forgot to highlight where this wealth has come from.

Hasn't most of this money been syphoned from US Taxpayers against our will via the likes of the United Nations and other "wealth redistribution" entities.

This is one of the best feelin' real down.
Last thing he recorded.
What else could he do after this?
A blues magnum opus and a swan song.
Brings me to tears every time.
