Post Happy Thoughts Here :D

I don't know about you guys, but this seems to have been a very rough couple of weeks in particular.

FLDS fiasco, searching laptops and electronics without need for warrant or even cause, DNA testing of all children, food shortage scares, delegates getting stripped of their seats...and all the other stuff...

* sigh* Sometimes it makes me wonder whether I should even keep trying. (Don't worry; I do still keep trying and am out there pitching yet. In fact, right now I'm in the midst of taking over a dying Meetup that would otherwise be closed down by the current leader.)

But we all need a little injection of hope and light now and then, no?

Even the news from PA (which was excellent!) was muddied by some reports of vote fraud and other spirit-draining stuff. Criminy sakes, as my mom would say.

So this is just a little corner for brightness and cheer. I'm forcing myself to think of some good news; perhaps you all can add a line of something to be grateful for and happy about. As least, I hope you can.

My good news observation: the Daily Paul seems to have its recent mysql bug fixed!

Your turn.

the weather has warmed up and the cherry blossoms are in bloom. My venue is opening again, and I just booked a big act. It's going to be a good summer.

I'm happy

The DP is proof that the grassroots support for Ron Paul and his peaceful message of individual liberty is large, real, and not going away!

thank you for being such
an incredibly smart and witty dailypaul girl!

~ and for starting this thread ~

I know we all try to keep our chins up and be positive, and *believe me* ...I also know that some days are harder than others. They can be downright heartbreaking when we realize there are many more rivers to cross. But still, so much of what we have accomplished is abso*freakin*lutely unprecedented and makes me SO proud...

(Heck, Andrew Malcolm at the LA Times thinks we're simply fascinatin'!)


I love my brothers and sisters in freedom at the dailypaul, and I am grateful for Dr. Paul and Michael and his website for being the catalysts of all this joy and happiness we have experienced!!!

★_The Revolution should be fun! ~ Ron Paul

optimistic in spite of the evidence

What's to be happy about?

80 million (and counting) armed Americans.

Stoners in every town who (though cautiously suspicious) are generally happy to help you score.

Selfish airlines who realize that dead passengers are bad for business.

Dentists who understand how to use anaesthesia.

Greedy farmers who are delighted to trade their wholesome produce for my filthy lucre.

The English language, and centuries of literature to entertain and enlighten me.

Poetry, music, dragonflies, and wild irises.

Cerveza frija, chicas caliente, y mota.

I'll stop before this list gets too tedious and syrupy.

But I will add -- my own will, which insists on happiness, and a mind clever enough to recognize the differences between happiness and euphoria, and between sadness and frustration.

We must remember to stay

We must remember to stay focused on that which we desire, ANYTHING else is a distraction and will take away from our goal.
Remember our true numbers are not yet known, but they will be.
All things that are done in the dark WILL be brought to the light.
This rEVOLution has gone global! There is NOTHING that can stop the awakening that is taking place. Once the truth is out, there is no turning back.

Again, stay focused on that which you desire.

Does my burka make my butt look fatwa?

I count this web site a blessing.

I count Ron Paul and his family a blessing. I count my fellow enlightened patriots a blessing. The sun was out and the weather was wonderful what a blessing. Learning not to plan to far in the future but enjoy every moment. If it doesn't get any better than this I'm ok with that. The movement is not dead it is morphing and continues to develop. I take pride in being a part of something so noble as restoring the Republic. I know that I am a good person because I stand with Dr. Paul and his message, this gives me peace
and hope. I am contented this makes me happy. Thank you for reminding me of all my blessings.

Don't Worry... "Be Happy" ;-)

I was happy, I [awoke] this day, I was happy, to [hear] my Son rattling in the bathroom, I was happy, to get up out of bed and put my [feet] on the floor, I was happy, to [see] whats in the fridge and make [breakfast] for us, I was happy, to be able to [get in my car and drive] him to school this morning [Strike that school remark] :-P I was happy, to spend [time] at this fine site today, I am happy, [RIGHT NOW]. I'm hoping, that tomorrow I can experience the same happiness? Then I think of how many people will not wake up from their slumber tomorrow. How many people are unable to experience the joys of a child. How many people can not rise out of bed and put their feet on the floor. How many people that have no roof over their heads, cars to drive, and internet service. I have compassion for those with so much less then I and at the same time I'm happy in retrospect for what I have. When ya bottom out, there is only one way to go :-) I am in control of myself, If I choose to be sad, then I'm gonna be sad :-( If I choose to be happy, then I will be HAPPY :-) I like to be happy just like you... :-)

Got this in my email today:

It cheered me up, notice the Republicans and Revolution in it.

Jesus also had twelve opossums

The Bible explained by kids - truth has been redefined!

In case you're a little foggy on your biblical history, let these
junior church students help you with
this complete overview of the Bible, compiled from their essays:

In the beginning, which occurred near the start, there was nothing but
God, darkness, and some gas. The Bible says, 'The Lord thy God is
one,' but I think He must be a lot older than that Anyway, God said,
'Give me a light!' and someone did. Then God made the world. He split
the Adam and made Eve. Adam and Eve were naked, but they weren't
embarrassed because mirrors hadn't been invented yet. Adam and Eve
disobeyed God by eating one bad apple, so they were driven from the
Garden of Eden. Not sure what they were driven in though, because
they didn't have cars

Adam and Eve had a son, Cain, who hated his brother as long as he was
Abel. Pretty soon all of the
early people died off, except for Methuselah, who lived to be like a
million or something.

One of the next important peo ple was Noah, who was a good guy, but
one of his kids was kind of a ham.
Noah built a large boat and put his family and some animals on it. He
asked some other people to join
him, but they said they would have to take a rain check.

After Noah came Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Jacob was more famous than
his brother, Esau, because Esau sold Jacob his birthmark in exchange
for some pot roast. Jacob had a son named Joseph who wore a really
loud sports coat.

Another important Bible guy is Moses, whose real name was Charlton
Heston. Moses led the Israel Lights out of Egypt and a way from the
evil Pharaoh after God sent ten plagues on Pharaoh's people. These
plagues included frogs, mice, lice, bowels, and no cable. God fed the
Israel Lights every day with manicotti. Then He gave them His top ten
Commandments. These include don't lie, cheat, smoke, dance, or covet
your neighbor's bottom (the Bible uses a bad word for bottom that I'm
not supposed to say. But my Dad uses it sometimes when he talks about
the President). Oh, yeah, I just thought of one more:
Humor they father and they mother.
One of Moses' best helpers was Joshua who was the first Bible guy to
use spies. Joshua fought the battle of Geritol and the fence fell over
on the town.

After Joshua came David. He got to be king by killing a giant with a
slingshot. He had a son named Solomon who had about 300 wives and 500
porcupines. My teacher says he was wise, but that doesn't sound very
wise to me. After Solomon there were a bunch of major league
prophets. One of these
was Jonah, who was swallowed by a big whale and then barfed up on the shore.

There were also some minor league prophets, but I guess we don't have
to worry about them.

After the Old Testament came the New Testament. Jesus is the star of
the New Testament. He was born in Bethlehem in a barn. (I wish I had
been born in a barn, too, because my mom is always saying to me,
'Close the door! Were you born in a barn' It would be nice to say, 'As
a matter of fact, I was.')

During His life, Jesus had many arguments with sinners like the
Pharisees and the Republicans.
Jesus also had twelve opossums. The worst one was Judas Asparagus.
Judas was so evil that they named a terrible vegetable after him.

Jesus was a great man. He healed many leopards and even preached to
some Germans on the Mount. But the Republicans and all those guys put
Jesus on trial before Pontius the Pilot. Pilot didn't stick up for
Jesus. He just washed his hands instead.

Anyways, Jesus died for our sins, then came back to life again. He
went up to Heaven but will be back at the end of the Aluminum. His
return is foretold in the book of Revolution.

Revolutions Require Angry, Worn Out, Pissed Off People

Once you free yourself from the matrix, you can not get back in. Just remind yourself that you're a lot smarter now than you were a year or two ago. Even though the truth may wear on you, the Ignorant Bliss that most Americans are in is only temporary and when SHTF, compared to most people, you will be feeling like a million bucks.

Well, maybe revolutions do require

angry, worn out, pissed off people, but not all are that way, look at our leader, Ron Paul, he has worked for so long, and I do think he is a little pissed off at times, but he seems to never wear out all these years. How fortunate for us for him to get this Revolution going!

I agree. Knowing what he

I agree. Knowing what he knows, I don't know how Ron Paul can maintain his cool. Somehow, he is able to argue and deal with complete morons and never lose his temper (other than a video I saw of him on trash TV back in 1988). I, myself am not able to do that. I can not stay calm when I am dealing with complete braindeads and their ignorance pisses me off.
I do, however, believe that Ron Paul has to be extremely angry about our government's doings. If he wasn't, he wouldn't be running for president.

Unless...and I hate even mentioning it...

Paul is a red herring. Most people ignore me on this but if given a few brain cells it makes utterly perfect sense. Employing a RH has many advantages and he may have been groomed his entire career for this election--their plans are more elaborate than you know--you have to research deep to know this, but I think many know this already. Do you really think the NWO/Globalists/Banksters are going to allow Ron Paul to thwart their sixty years' worth of plans? Never going to happen folks.. even if he were to be elected there are ways to remedy the situation....

That said, I shall vote for Paul because he cured my apathy and if elected I think he would be the greatest president we've ever had. It just seems too good to be true and I trust you can see that as well. If not, you really do not know what we are up against....

"The body is but a vessel for the soul,
A puppet which bends to the soul's tyranny.
And lo, the body is not eternal,
For it must feed on the flesh of others,
Lest it return to the dust whence it came.
Therefore the soul deceives and despises."

Ohhh, yes, we need some happy thoughts

Here's one: We have a leader who has been fighting with these frustrating government leaders for a long time, and he has been patient, forever working, consistent, and caring for the American people. Myself included, there are few here who would have been as patient as he. He is continuing his work, and showing us how to carry on with his work, to redo this country.
Here's another: with all the gloom and doom in the news, and not in the news, but going on all around the world, we have a God who is merciful

Please, the rest of you, put some more, We all need some.

Hm. Not much to be happy about, I guess.

Well, hopefulfilled (and I love your handle, btw), it seems your and xntryk1's cute Onion repost are the only good thoughts offered up.

I was hoping for more...I'm usually a revolution cheerleader, but recently, it all seems to be almost beyond hope...perhaps I'm not the only one feeling this way, or I suspect we'd have more responses.

Convince me that the light at the end of the tunnel is not an oncoming train. No; not "convince me" so much as, let's share with each other any evidence of the very real likelihood of a positive outcome from all this. I want to believe!!

Still, I take comfort in John Adams' words, just before the first American revolution:

"What's about to happen is almost too big for my grasp. We don't have men fit for these times. We lack education, experience in the world, money, everything. I feel an unutterable anxiety. God grant us wisdom and strength in the coming months."

And yet...they seemed to come out of the mess okay.

I actually wrote about that here, in an attempt to bring encouragement to myself and others...

Fanowalt I feel you.

John Adams' words is exactly how I feel about the United States today.

This very well could be the Beginning of a New Revolution. Let's keep it one of love for as long as integrity permits.

We can all say what needs to be done, but who here led by example today?

Wow, that's really good fanofwalt!

I missed the other thread "Sound familiar?" because the title did not catch my eye, but I love the quotes and think they are highly relevant.

Thanks, but I don't know if you are

a Christian or not, but my name is actually because of my faith, so, I guess when I get down like I have been lately, because of what is going on, I read Psalm 37. It is about how the evil schemers of the world CAN'T win, and will get their due. Sometimes the Daily Paul and the folks here and Ron Paul himself give me hope, but lately only God does. Sorry if you aren't a believer. I have no problem with those who aren't, but I would have trouble having hope all the time without it.
