About 75 percent of the crude oil marketed here is sold off the books,
and they are doing trades that would be illegal if
it was a regulated market,

- Peter DeFazio

Similarly, establishing a firm timeline for bringing
our troops home could accelerate the development of
Iraqi security forces and deepen their commitment to
defending their own country and their own government.
- Peter DeFazio

Cowardice asks the question - is it safe?
Expediency asks the question - is it politic?

but one must take it BECAUSE it is right.

Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort
of feeling safe with a person;
having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words,

chaff and grain together,
knowing that a faithful hand will take and sift them,
keep what is worth keeping, and then,
with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.

Nor does a nursery gardener scent his roses.

You are not your mind. You, a Spiritual BEing,
are neither your mind nor your body.
Mind and body are your tools - to use as you choose.
Sometimes your body appears to have a will of its own,
as when it twitches or pains.
Likewise, your mind often appears to have its own will.
That incessant chattering of regret, disappointment, guilt,
shame, foreboding, worry, and fear
is your Rattlesnake Mind striking off on its own.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
