It looks like he’s trying to say something in particular, know what I mean?

He is giving a speech about Libya in front of the LIncoln Memorial same place that Obama graced for Martin Luther King Day a whale back. I walked around it once a bunch.

He is thinking with his fingers and rolls this thoughts between his thumb and his forefinger as if it helps.

Reminds me of a certain hand signal that both Bill Clinton and Barack Obama use to stress a point. Something they learned to use in their political aspirations trained by who the heck knows but probably via Rhodes Scholarships for their commitment to the common good and their character LOL, but they also have the ability to feel your pain when they often create a crisis. Obama more than the the first. I think he is past the pain.

Sometimes you gotta go back to actually move forward. And I don’t mean going back to reminisce or chase ghosts. I mean go back to see where you came from.

Where you ben, see how you got here, see where you’re goin’.

I know there are those that say, “You can’t go back.”

Screen Shot 2015-03-28 at 6.49.41 PM

Yes, you can.

Just have to look in the right place.

I’ve been driving a Lincoln since long before anybody paid me to drive one.

I didn’t do it to be cool.

I didn’t do it to make a statement.

I just like it.

“I think that’s old Cyrus”

“1800 pounds and do whatever the heck I want”

“I can respect that”

“Take the long way, huh?” (nods in agreement)

Thank you, Cyrus.

(I think he is referring to SImon of Cyrene who carried the cross, porpoisedly.) I don’t really have any idea why he called the longhorn Cyrus, but it’s possible.

Chris Stevens on a mule or donkey? I think he thinks he is Jesus.

Which reminds me of a time when I was at the Grand Canyon and brought my dog Skipper, a cute black Pomeranian with a little heart nose.

Looked like a bear when he was a puppy and I got him because I took care of a puppy named Rocky who was also a black Pomeranian. I dropped the puppy once by mistake on cement, but he was okay. I think. He was squiggling a bunch and fell out of my arms on to cement which was scary cause he whimpered. He was a Christmas present for this woman’s daughter and I was keeping it for her so she could surprise her daughter and I fell in love with that breed of dog because they are so cute. She was the teacher and owner of a Court Reporting School that I attended, but never completed. Got to 225 words per minute but never got the other type training you are supposed to get when being educated so I felt a bit unable to continue with the education because it was lacking every other aspect of the business which is really important when attempting to get into a career. My sister went also and got up to about 200 words a minute on the Short hand machine but never finished school either. It may have been sort of a court reporting phase in our lives. The owner rarely was at her business and basically we taught ourselves, for the most part, and paid a lot of money doing it. Cushy business. Sort of a hot shot. Anyway while at the Grand Canyon I had Skipper in my hands and started to slip down some loose dirt into the Grand Canyon. Luckily I didn’t slip further and was able to keep Skipper in my arms. Then a bunch of mules with people on them who had muled down and up the trail at the Grand Canyon approached and the leader of the group said “I sure hope that dog doesn’t bark.”  or “You better hope that dog doesn’t bark.” I was on the inside of the pathway. They were on the outside of the pathway, so it would have been their misfortune. Skipper was a barker. He attacked vacuum cleaners and brooms ferociously. I think the family that we got him from abused the animals as puppies so he had a natural fear of certain appliances and he liked to bark when the doorbell rang, etc. He barked a lot, sometimes incessantly. So I held him close and got next to the wall of the canyon and they muled by me without a bark but he was stretching his neck to see them and looked fearful and like he wanted to bark. Whew that was close. They don’t have many barriers at the Grand Canyon. In fact a husband of a friend of my sister fell into the Grand Canyon on a hike with his family and died. Anyway there were letters involved and no one knows if he just looked down and got dizzy, committed suicide, thought he could fly, or had a heart attack. He just wasn’t there behind them anymore, until they found him below. Left his kids without their dad. Strange story. Nice daughter. It’s been a long time and I can’t remember their names because we weren’t really friends or very close.

My husband, now ex, before we were married got stoned and with his band of friends smoked a joint (or were stoned more than likely because it is pretty stupid to do that) on the balancing rock until a Park Ranger came and told them to carefully get off it one by one because it was balancing and could stop balancing at any moment. I have no idea which one because there seems to be quite a few kind of like the Shrouds of Turin but it was a precarious place to be. When you look down the Grand Canyon it is black and it is steep in certain areas and is dangerous if you aren’t really

careful or cavalier.

Memorial of Ambassador Chris Stevens no longer on a mule. Looks like a fir tree of some kind, perhaps a con-if-er, in gravel. It is supposed to represent him somehow.

Dust Bowl

Comes A Time – Neil Young

Pope Benedict and Shimon Perez also planted a tree for peace together. I recall JFK planted a tree in Canada for some reason with a bunch of Canadians I wonder if it was in Calgary, ALBERTA (which is east of British Columbia). He shoveled a bunch of dirt for it anyway. It’s probably a Rhodes reward for politics and their conception for the common good. Helps to prevent a dust bowl. Kind of like naming a building for a donation.

The guy on the right looks like a press man. I can’t remember his name but was very famous in his time. I included it in the transcript of CBS News compilation of the JFK assassination:


Some funny spoofs on the Lincoln ad:

Ellen DeGeneres Hilariously Spoofs Matthew McConaughey’s Lincoln Car Commercial

I really like Ellen Degeneres, though I rarely get the chance to see her show. The reason I like her is she doesn’t look like she is ravenous even though in this ad she is eating brownies. In the stores I see makeup and hair colorings with pictures of women on the products and they look like they want to eat you alive. She doesn’t look that way in her ads. Unaffected. I think they need to make women look less predatory since most the time they aren’t in real life. I don’t think it helps to sell the products and I don’t think it is good for young girls or women to emulate. It might help the problems we have in this country to some degree if we tone it down a bit.

Jim Carrey Lincoln “Ads” Nail Matthew McConaughey Lincoln Spots: SNL

Maybe it’s a coincidence but the woman to the right of the brother of Ambassador Chris Stevens at his memorial in San Francisco sure looked like the same woman at Sandy Hook Elementary who purportedly lost a child in the hoax and seems to be one and the same with the cavalier actor husband (I could come up with many names but I’ll resist the temptation) in a picture with Obama in his disarming attempt and his futile attempt to step on our rights to defend ourselves, but there is a lot of that kind of shit goin’ on ever since Benghazi.
