Primavera | a short film

The storyteller narrates . his words speak a delicate Truth . Hope is wished for . a small joy is brought into his life . it awakens a feeling of connecting . optimism is hard to find in certain moments in life . this short film fills a moment full while listening to the words spoken so exquisitely. – j.kiley

Ugly as Dorian Gray


I would like to know why tax-payers money is being used so the President can go to Mar-a-Lago almost every weekend since the Inauguration & members of his family can go to Aspen or other locations – for business and pleasure – at the people’s expense.

Local businesses & residents have to endure a total disruption to their lives and livelihoods, with incomes suffering and even identities being called into question when they are returning to their private homes. Not to mention the strain put on the cities of New York and Palm Beach. It costs approximately $3 Million per weekend at Mar-a-Lago. Five visits so far equals approximately $15 Million. Add that to the costs to the nation of securing Trump Tower and you’re talking approximately $100 million from the national treasury to allow him and his family to live in the opulent luxury to which they were accustomed. And he’s only been president for 2 months. The total costs of Mira-a-lago & Aspen & other jaunts down the road are inestimable.

Who knows exactly how much the Trump-family bilking of the National Treasury will cost us, the tax payers, to cover all these unnecessary expenses for the continued future of this presidency. The White House is a palatial residence. Camp David is there for Presidents to go to relax. And to meet with other heads of state. He is the President & not meant to live in gold-plated luxury. Living his high life when he turns around and rips up all the programs that help the less fortunate is shameful. If he refuses to use the residence and security provided all previous presidents, then we should, as a Country, send him a bill for all these added expenses. I would also include New York City’s expenses to maintain protection for Trump Towers which the President has not been using. Of course, it would make sense for his wife to move with their son to the White House & be protected.  It’s the polite thing to do – they’re not the only people who call Trump Tower home. And I am sure there are great schools in the Washington D.C. area. Maybe a charter school is available.

Aspen is described as the quintessential American ski town

Since the President obviously wants to destroy the public schools & all other, non-defense departments of the government, it might do his son good to associate with children from more honest, moral backgrounds. They might be able to teach him lessons his father never will. The games Bannon & the President are playing are not as invisible as they might think. Just leave the White House & stop ripping off the people you promised to help if you were elected. Oh, that’s right: in actuality you didn’t win the election. The Electoral College is obsolete & your Presidency is nothing more than a joke. I am waiting for you to leave voluntarily before you are found out and tried for treason. And I would like you to know we know you lie all the time & then spin the lies about your lies, trying to cause a disoriented sense of reality. You are not fooling anyone. Soon the despotic emperor will be seen for what he is: in place of his new clothes, there will be nothing but his small-handed, naked self. Ugly as Dorian Gray’s portrait in the attic.

Camp David was Good enough for John F. Kennedy and his family, why Not-My-President? Is it not opulent enough for you? Maybe you need to take a visit with Nature. It might just clear your mind and enable you to see the world with a keener eye. OMG! I must be losing my mind. Who do I think I am talking to?

Face of Trump [Mental Health Professionals Declaring Him Unable To Be President] Letter In The New York Time from February 9th 2017

letter-editor-from-mental-health-profession-declaring-him-unable-to-be-president

I am posting this now on March 4th 2017 to see if things have been getting worse. D.J.T or as I like to refer to him as ‘The Dangerous D.T.’ [DDT] has topped Nixon. Now who ever thought it possible Watergate would be made to appear like a small wave compared to the Tsunami brewing in Washington D.C. and especially at the White House. Let us wait and see what kind of ride this tale out of some story teller’s crazy mind will take us. ‘Fasten your seat belts – it’s going to be a bumpy night [I prefer ‘ride’].’ Leave it to All About Eve to give us the perfect line.  –  j.kiley

“The truth about the world is that anything is possible. Had you not seen it all from birth and thereby bled it of its strangeness it would appear to you for what it is, a fevered dream, a trance with chimeras having neither analogue nor precedent, whose ultimate destination is unspeakable and calamitous beyond reckoning. . .The universe is no narrow thing and the order within it is not constrained by any latitude in its conception to repeat what exists in one part in any other part. Even in this world more things exist without our knowledge than with it and the order in creation which you see is that which you have put there, like a string in a maze, so that you shall not lose your way. For existence has its own order and that no (wo)man’s mind can compass, that mind itself being but a fact among others.”

ILLUSIONS
by j.kiley

Maybe truth doesn’t exist
And control is an illusion
Lies – reality in disguise
Fantasy – view inside our minds
Where real reveals its identity
On how the Wheel revolves
Inside the Universal expanse

Maybe truth doesn’t exist
Minds unable to recognize clarity
From living inside the insanity
We are prisoners of our own transgressions
Words overflowing have lost meaning
Telling stories repetitiously
Correcting reality by changing it
Altering outcomes while evolving

An Open Letter To Donald Trump From Some Angry Women.

'maggie the cat'

‘maggie the cat’

A feeling of strength surges through my female body while I read this blog post EXPOSING Mr. Trump for the disgrace he IS as a human & how disgusting he is as a sexual assaulter & for his demeaning of all women. Women are stronger now, more than ever, and we won’t let Mr. Trump take us back to the days of a Nazi Germany mentality, where all who were not white, wealthy & powerful were considered as worthless & deserving of extermination. We are not in that place anymore & hopefully, we will never, EVER, return to such a devastating existence. Mr. Trump cannot be elected as President of these United States of America. It would mean the destruction of the US & would bring devastation to the entire World. PLEASE VOTE – MAKE IT COUNT! Think carefully when you cast your vote. READ THIS POST IN ITS ENTIRETY! The ANGRY WOMAN who wrote maggie-the-cat-paw-print1this Treatise is brilliant! It will tell all women who Mr. Trump is. His Secrets Are Revealed. BRAVA!

Dear Mr. Trump… can I call you Mr. Trump? Is that ok? I want you to be happy, that’s very important to me.

Before I get started, let me say this letter isn’t from all women. The Trumpettes surely won’t approve of this message. But this is from most women.

We see right through you. We have all known you at some point. Your ways are not unfamiliar to us. We see through you because we’ve been dealing with you our whole lives.

We heard you call women pigs. And disgusting. And stupid. And bimbos.

We watched as you called a former Ms. Universe “Ms. Piggy” and then spent four days continuing to insult her.

We see your weakness. Your lust for attention at any cost, your need to denigrate women. We see all of it. And we’re mad.

Yes. We’re mad. And fired up. And here’s the thing about us……

Bullshit!

An important message for all those who want to understand what really is Bullshit. It’s not a lie. That can be found out. It would be nice to live in a world without so much Bullshit. Instead to have some honest reality. Thinking and developing one’s ideas and sharing them. Listen to a wise message coming from a person who shows wisdom which is refreshing. – j.kiley

BULLSHIT! – Harry Frankfurt

Harry Frankfurt is an American philosopher and author of the New York Times Best Seller “On Bullshit”. Although first conceived as an essay over 30 years ago, his theory on bullshit is more relevant than ever before.

BULLSHIT! aims to further our understanding of what bullshit is, why there’s so much of it, and how it can be a greater enemy to the truth than lies.
