We gotta post more positive stuff...

We have to continue to develop our intrinsic ability to be positive and happy. I've almost avoided the Daily Paul the past week b/c there have been few positive posts.

Corruption Perception Index/Trannsparency 2010

Denmark, New Zealand, Singapore, Finland, Sweden top least corrupt countries.

Mexico, Indonesia, Russia ranked poorly of course and Soamalia was the worst with Iraq and Afghanistan being right behind.

OK. Hear's some POSITIVE news for you.

Someone I've known for over 20 years. Her and her husband are/were staunch Democrats, loved Bill Clinton and always spewed the same ole liberal dribble. Her husband once called me an uninformed boob. I could hardly have an intelligent conversation with them. They got divorced and I had no desire to keep up with either one of them after they split and we moved. But my wife who is a "True Saint" has kept up with and helped this woman over the years.

My wife is going to visit her this weekend and she talked to her on the phone last night. WOW! What a shocker. Among other bad things she said about Obama and government in general she said; "It is clear that our whole society has been or is being conditioned to depend on government."

Wholly cow! Hell is freezing over folks. To hear this woman speak this simple truth or to speak "evil" of the Democrats and their Messiah is remarkable. Talk about CHANGE.

Check out this post.

That *was* fun to watch. (12MM hits)

Yours is...

Let's spend our time helping out an RP delegate running for Senate instead of re-posting links from Drudge, Breitbart and Infowars.

I'm Positive!

Positively negative...


a retired school teacher in . . .

our community went to southeast Asia to help people remove land mines--

he is now helping local farmers grow coffee organically--

I won't say more, because I don't want to identify where I live--

but there are hopeful things happening everywhere; usually people prefer not to talk about the good things they are doing--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

I could post a youtube or more--

and tell about some personal experiences that would make you weep with hope--

but it's too personal--

The world has always been a harsh place, and it's no less harsh now than ever, but there IS hope in the world; I can verify that--

Oh, I just found one that isn't personal at all; I can share this:


it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--


Are You Positive?

We don't need positive stuff. We need to speak the truth and straighten out the mess that idiots like McConnell and Reid created..

Being positive and speaking the truth

aren't mutually exclusive. I don't think Dave7 is suggesting we change our mission. Rather, just that when we come across news items, articles, opinion pieces, pictures, etc. that are of interest, we might post some more of those that reflect what is positive and good in the world - not only the messes that have been made, which *can* get depressing (especially when exaggerated). People can be motivated by what's bad or what's good. What's good is what makes it all worth it. But also, hearing of the victories of others can be inspiring.

For instance, even IF you are one of the global-corporation apologists here or simply enjoy knowing that, if the rat research is to some degree predictive, your family line might include those who have severely depressed immune systems or are grotesquely deformed, as least until the generation where the males become sterile, that is, even if you did *not* smile at that post where the girl spoke of her achievement getting thousands of signatures to petition Girl Scouts to have non-GMO cookies... it did provide an example of what you can do when you set an objective and, keeping a positive attitude, devote yourself to achieving it.

You gotta think positive, emalvini.

Everything is wonderful. We're all happy and well fed. We watch Dancing with the Stars. We drink our beer. We watch our porn. Everything is just peachy. Why are you so damn negative???? (satire of course)

I Knew It! You're Working For The NSA..

You know all my secrets...


Positive "stuff" you say?

While I'm not concerned about "positive" itself.

The posts have become VERY petty as of late. I believe we are being maliciously targeted by JIDF and similar troll posters.

They hate their liberty. So they want to drag the site in the mud thinking we are going to change our minds.

Be positive, make a difference, get involved!

Being positive is good

I was just curious of your sig line? lol. I "hear" it as:


Because there are no word breaks, did you mean it this way? lol

Well smart move then. Protect and defend


The periodical format of DP makes it unique for community building. And the positive flow is pretty constant. We're a beset but upbeat community. And we remind people to keep the fun in it but temporary outrage can make the coolest water instantly evaporate.

The rivers still flow and we recharge.

Ordinarily I'd say no YOU have to post more positive stuff but take a break by all means. Maybe something else is getting you down.

And soft as we are (MUA HA HA HA HA HA!), you know this is the real game. And it's rough out there. Rough in here too.

Me, Cudnoski and Bill3 are in an implicit (sometimes explicit) communication through humor and it's reached a point of competition. We're very self-consciously trying to make you laugh.

And there are days when being a humorist is like selling heat in a desert. Nobody wants it or you.

So anyways, while we are a movement of diverse skills and many doctors, sometimes you are your own best doctor. So take some time. Listen to yourself and your body. Come back when you are ready and in the way you want.


Most of those who think so actually don't and most of those who think sew actually rip.

I pray

and pray and pray but it seems like my prayers are not being answered. Its hard to be positive now a days. It sucks man

and among these are which we do not understand

The process of the European conquest of the Americas is a 600 year long story.

The whole time people were furiously praying to God, to their ancestors, to the mountains, to the sky and finally begging the clouds and trees for help.

Thousands of years of faith and belief were eradicated one one poor, frightened soul at a time...or sometimes in groups. Take away the people and you take away the culture and the songs.

Is God taken away? Or did He just go away and leave us?

Did we ever have God in our lives to begin with? Or did we deceive ourselves?

Some say it's the highest and most unforgivable sin to curse God. Well if so I totally missed the cosmic bus of grace. I have turned up my face to the heavens and shaken my fist many times. And I have spent way too much time in my life being angry at God.

I get angry at God for countenancing injustice and simply not EFFING FIXING IT. PLEASE, MAKE IT STOP, IT'S BEYOND ENDURANCE. How can you be able to do anything and yet do nothing oh God?

And here's me. The Great Warrior Priest Smudge Pot. And I am a priest. Supposed to be anyways. And I am a man of faith.


Honestly besides genetics I really do not know. I know the sound of my master's voice, I know the voice of the Earth and I know the sound of the bell when it rings.

But I do not know why. And I can't tell you what is "real" in context. It's all real. Everything. It's all now, it's all here and it's all happening. For real.

And I think you know this. And I think it's why you asked.

Most of those who think so actually don't and most of those who think sew actually rip.
