Told in a dream, in 2000, I was going into politics, I woke up, in shock - I hated politics!


I stayed inside last night at a friend's home - I needed RELIEF. 

After seeing Donald Trump's transgenders not allowed in US armed forces edict on TV, I dreamt all night of being involved in that discussion and politics. I awoke understanding that the reason I live as I now do is part of my spiritual work assignment given to me in late 2000: that I would get involved in politics.

How else do I really address homeless issues, if I am not myself homeless? There really is no other way to do it with conviction and authority. My host last night said he hopes the assignment ends soon. Amen, I said.

On Trump's no transgenders in US military edict, compliments a former US military combat veteran amigo this morning:
In my Facebook timeline last night:
#45...NO TRANSGENDERS allowed in our military...smh...gets worse everyday...

Robert Dwyer Normally I try to stay out of this kind of forum. Sometimes I just can't help myself. So without getting to long winded. Personally I don't care what people do with their lives or their life choices, that don't affect me directly. But here is something to think about. Did you ever stop to think that there's another side to this issue. Did you ever think that maybe they have their safety in mind. Because from what I have seen there isn't much anyone can do to change the Neanderthals of the world and I would rather you safe than self righteous. Just a thought.

Maryfrances Mounts That's your opinion and I respect it...but...i belong to the LGBT community and there is a such thing called ...civil Rights...this punkass trump needs to go!!!! Impeach now..
Manage
Robert Dwyer I understand your frustration, though I play for the other team, both sexually and politically, I to believe in equal rights for all people, I do mean all. I have a multiracial family and living in the keys I have a deverse set of friends, gay, Spanish, black the list goes on and on. I love them dearly. But I also believe that open forums to discuss these type of issues without getting ones panties in bunch is a healthy thing. I believe it's the only way to reach a solution. Good luck on your quest for impeachment, these are tough times and I wish you well.

Beth Akabane An interesting point, but I seriously doubt that's their real motivation. Dump has never given a shit about anybody but himself.

Peggy Butler I am very much in favor of anyone's serving in the military who wants to do so, and I don't believe anyone who does so is "self-righteous", Robert Dwyer. It is a matter of civil rights that every America is entitled to have. And knowing how Donald Trump has mocked everyone in this country who is not like him, I don't for one moment think he has the safety of the transgender in mind. He said it is because of the "medical expense" - so as always he's totally ignorant of the persons of whom he's speaking. No transgender would go into the military to undergo surgery to complete a change. That's ignorant to even think it. But it's a nice thought on your part to think he's being altruistic in his thinking. That will never happen with this man, his family and his cronies. They could care less about the safety of no one except themselves.

Gene Franckowiak May I add tthis clarification: Trump did not invent this rule. The rule was in place for a long long time until Obama changed it.....so you ned to lump Trump in with Kennedy, Johnson, Carter, Reagan, Bush x 2, Bill clinton,etc......Trump only rescinded Obama's order......why is it a Democrat never blames anyone they like ????

Robert Dwyer I am loving this, great point! We are talking politics. They are all dirty, they all sign things that are beneficial to them at time and to the highest bidder. That's why the swamp needs to be drained, both sides. We need younger members with fresh ideas. The world is changing, we need people that can change with it.

Robert Dwyer You caught me off guard, I'm still trying to wrap my head around 2016
AnneThompson Patton That is wonderful news! Because ALL of my Grandchildren will now become transgender and they will never be sent to die in a foreign country for no good reason.
Manage
Terri Mazzotta That was my reaction. Sick of war machine anyway. Talking about the cost of transgender in the military what about the cost of all the poor men and women who come back blown apart lives destroyed even through anxiety and PTSD! This is bullshit distraction from healthcare and this shit will go to the court but who the fuck knows what's going to happen in the Supreme Court because we were robbed of a seat by the Republicans! I hate the US today. Until we can get the Senate and Congress right take care of people through universal healthcare and better education higher wages this place is a farce and I seriously am considering moving out of here I definitely will move if Donald Trump happens to win again or doesn't get impeached in the next four. No..im almost done with this and dont want to be a part of it. Its a daily outrage I cant take emotionally. Can you?
Manage
Peggy Butler Terri Mazzotta very well said, Terri Mazzotta! I made the mistake of turning on the noon news and I was so outraged, I was shaking. My first thought was instead of beginning to travel when I get my financial life in better order within the next year and a half, I think I just want out of here. I'm not a member of the LGBT community but I have many friends in it and they know I love them as they do me, but he and the Republicans are going way too far in trying their best to not only undo every good and decent thing President Obama has done for everyone in this country, but trying their best to undo the complete Civil Rights Act of the 60s! They are a selfish and despicable bunch in Washington and they make me almost ashamed of being an American born citizen of this country I once thought was the greatest in the world. They are quickly - and dear God to think it's only his 7th month in office - changing the face of the United States until we who love this country will soon no longer recognize it. I'm sure his supporters who also think no one but they are the chosen people of this country, are shouting with glee today - not all of them, but I would venture to say most of them. There are still some decent people who were misled into thinking he really was going to make America better. Maybe if I get out of the country, I will live twenty more years or more as I hope to do. Staying under this fascist regime is going to cause me and many more to go to an early grave, I'm afraid, from the reaction I have to every despicable 'ruling' he makes.

Terri Mazzotta I got heart palpitations earlier and turned off the news. Now I will go find a good netflix then read..talk a walk during sundown. Illwatch Rachel bc i adore her but no more morning news! Its ruining me. ☮️

Peggy Butler Never in my 60 + years of voting for Presidents, have I known a president to act the way this one does, to tweet his every thought and every action rather than do it as a presidential presence. Oh dear God, America is not going to survive this.

Sloan Bashinsky Gosh, riddle me this: Didn't Donald Duck boast during last year's election that he welcomed Caitlyn Jenner into his circle?

My brother was bisexual, in the closet; when someone who had it in for him was going to out him, he devised a theatrical suicide made to look like murder. He didn't get away with it, as far as the local medical examiner, police detective, FBI and I were concerned, but most people in Birmingham, Alabama and Alabama generally, believed, and still believe, he was murdered.

That aside, I wonder how Trump's generals and admirals feel about this? I think if I were a general or admiral, I would be wondering how my straight troops, who are the larger majority, feel about having gay and now transgender brother and sister troops in their midst, especially troops living in barracks, or in the field in war zones. War is very bad business.

Although I have never served in the US armed forces and do not know how American troops feel about this, I would think troops need to be single in eye. Not distracted. Their morale, safety and lives trump everything else, I think, including how LBGTs not in the armed forces think. So, I'd like to hear from US Army, Air Force, Navy, Special Forces, Marines, SEALS, DELTAS, etc., since it's their welfare and lives on the line.
Manage
Sloan Bashinsky In case anyone in this thread is wondering, I think Trump and Hillary were the two all-time worse candidates for president, and they mirror back to America itself.
Manage
Sloan Bashinsky I dreamt about this all last night, startng with former Key West Mayor now City Commissioner Jimmy Weekley trying to dragoon me into something and he was not happy with me, and then current Mayor Craig Cates came and started in on me, and then he told me this is why I live the way I do, which is I'm homeless, but that had to do with politics, as getting into politics was the assignment given to me in dream as I was passing through Tallahassee on a Greyhound bus from Los Angeles to Key West in late 2000. I awoke in a "state", because I really did not like politics.
Manage
Sloan Bashinsky Later dreams last night also were about politics, and I woke up in the wee hours and, since I was staying the night with a friend, for a break from my routine sleeping nights in the KWPD front lobby, I went online and this and related FB threads were staring at me, so i made a couple of comments here, and went back to sleep, and dreamt even more, pointing me toward the religious current.

Sloan Bashinsky In the Gospels, Jesus does not address LBGT. Paul, nowever, quoting Leviticus, condemns homosexulaity as an abomination. Paul was a Pharisee. As such, he had a solemn duty to marry and propagate God's chosen people, according to Jewish beliefs. Yet, nowhere in Paul's writings is an mention of him have had a wife or children. In his writings, Paul puts women below men in relation to God, Jesus. Only through her husband can a woman know Christ. Sex causes trouble, best to be like him, celibate; besides, Christ is returning soon, so no need to have more children. And, he had a thorn in the flesh he had asked God to remove, but God did not remove it. But he did not say what that thorn in the flesh was, but apparently it did not bother God. I once used that from Paul to persuade several young gay men in Birmingham, Alabama that Paul was gay and it did not matter to God, and for them to attend a progressive Sunday School class in an old inner city Southern Baptist church, the same church in which my grandfathers had been deacons and where both of my parents had gone to church in their youth, the same church I then was attending, and they gave the Sunday school class and church a try and they really liked it and came regularly on Sundays.
Manage
Sloan Bashinsky My host last night was Army Special Forces, who saw combat. He is straight. He has many LBGT friends. He had no problem with LBGTs being in the armed forces. His experience was transgenders tended to be unstable and they could not fit into strict everyone's the same, including haircuts, military life. I said, there was an LBGT at the city's homeless shelter who was a real prima donna, went out of his way to cause disturbance, get attention. The women didn't want him in their dorm or bathroom. The shelter staff had to jump through hoops to accommodate him and he demonstrated no gratitude or respect or sympathy for the effect he was having there. It was all about him.
Manage
Sloan Bashinsky I told my host that I felt this was the first presidential thing Trump has done, a really, tough, unpopular with many call. Not for America, but for America's military. I said I do not think the government should pay for sex change operations. I said, I had a vasectomy and a vasovasotomy (to reverse the vasectomy) and it never occurred to me that the government should pay for those operations. This is not the business of civilians who might be outraged. This is the business of the military, who are very different from civilians. My host said, the military mostly is made up of people from outside the big cities. I said the people screaming against this seem to be acting like it was done to them personally, and it has nothing to do with them. It has to do with people who sign up to get shot and killed, blown up. This is their call, and Trump is their boss.
Manage
Robert Dwyer Well Sloan, it looks like you gave this issue a lot of thought. I am a Vietnam era veteran and I to have been giving it some thought. Although I feel for the people involved, I can't find anything you said to be wrong. The only thing you didn't mention is that Military service is not a right. Did have a thought this morning, I guess there's a reason it's called selective service board.
Maryfrances Mounts Wth is wrong with you people...the government DOES not pay for sex change operations...wake up!!!!
Sloan Bashinsky Maybe what's wrong people who never were in the US military and have no clue what the general and admirals and their troops have to deal with, but this is so personal an issue to them, they cannot see anything but themselves?
Robert Dwyer So the articles that come up when you Google it are all wrong?Manage
Sloan Bashinsky The generals and admirals have tried to make it work, it was what their presidents ordered, yes? The generals and admirals fought wars they did not like, but it was what their presidents ordered, yes? I am saying, people who did not serve in the US military, especially in the field, especially in combat, who are so very polemic about the very small number of people who will be affected by Trump's decision, are protesting way too much about something they might know very little, nothing, if they have not been in the US military. There is plenty wrong with Trump, for which I hope he is held accountable before he leaves office. I do not think this is in that plenty, though.
Robert Dwyer I was referring to the articles about the pentagon and government paying for gender reassignment surgery.
Manage
Sloan Bashinsky roger that, thanks for pointing that out

On another Trump war front:

I'm probably alone in this, but I side with President Trump on the AG Sessions matter. It's as if Mr. Sessions did not want to face the inevitable accusations of favorable bias, and the expected media bias, in the "Russia investigation", so recused himself. I find that unacceptable behavior.
Of course, he may have felt he could not be unbiased, which would speak even more poorly of his suitability for the job.

Kenneth McMahan You may be right. However, my take on it was that Sessions, being loyal, may have recused himself believing that Trump's detractors wouldn't believe Sessions' findings anyway, so it might be better to force an independent investigation that would turn  up nothing and implode. Then, who could argue? The problem is, it was doomed when the deputy AG, in a boneheaded move, appointed Mueller, who apparently received no instructions on the limits of his focus.

Another issue Trump has with Sessions is, of course, Sessions' supposed weakness on going after Hillary Clinton. You'll recall that during the election, Trump was all about pursuing Hillary. After the election was over, Trump stated in an interview the Clintons had been through a lot and he didn't want to hurt them. I was stunned at the about face, but I'm guessing Sessions is following his boss's lead by not going hot after a Clinton investigation.

I'm not saying I'm right - just that my read is different on Sessions. 🙂

Bob Cleveland "..believing that Trump's detractors wouldn't believe Sessions' findings anyway ...". Hardly worthy of the AG. Pre-emptive action against the PResident?

Kenneth McMahan You may have found a hole in my theory, there. But I did find out that Sessions sought counsel with the staff attorneys before he made the decision to recuse, but I admittedly don't know why he decided to.
Remove
Bob Cleveland At the very least, he ought to have offered his recusal verbally to the President, and let it be Mr. Trump's decision. I'm guessing it wasn't.

Kenneth McMahan Yeah, I thought about that, too. Don't know why he wouldn't talk to Prez first, but Trump makes it sound as though he was blindsided.
Remove
Hank Walker Sessions spent so much time in the Senate, that I think he has gotten to used to going with the flow and letting things work themselves out. I do believe he lacks the urgency necessary for the post. My problem, however, is not with Trump's frustration; it is that Trump didn't handle it behind closed doors. A twitter storm and statements to the press about his AG are just not what I expect of the "Dignity or the Office."
Remove
Bob Cleveland Hank, as my other status said, his candor and bluntness were major assets in the campaign, but major liabilities in the presidency.
David Tomlinson Agree. See Thessalonians regarding the law. In my opinion the lawless cannot govern law, if the law is used for personal gain. Tsk tsk tsk

Charles W. Lugar I'm on board with you Bob. Sessions won't go after HRC either!!!

Sloan Bashinsky Sessions apparently lied in the beginning that he'd had no dealings with Russia. Wonder, though, if Trump knew from Sessions what had really happened, which suited Trump just fine, and then when Sessions got caught and had no real choice but to recuse himself, all hell broke loose - the webs we weave to deceive?

Bob Cleveland Unfortunately, i was out of the room......

Amen on the weaving!

Sloan Bashinsky I can't stand Trump, think he and Hillary both should be locked up. But, I swan, I think he made the right call on transgenders in US armed services. Perhaps his 1st presidential moment. Very tough controversial call, and I don't say that because I'm a right wing Christians, I'm not. I dreamt about that all night last night, after seeing it on TV.

R Dean Pesnell I don't think Mr. Sessions should have recused himself but I also think President Trump should handle this privately.
Remove
Sloan Bashinsky As a matter of law, Sessions should have recused himself, because he had been caught lying about his Russian contacts, he was a possible suspect, criminal defendant, charged with treason. Trump's problem is, his own son and several confidents lied about the same thing, face the same possible future; more than that, it's not believable that Trump was not in on it. No way Sessions could preside over that. it's time the Trump backers get the same shit out of their eyes and ears, that the Democrats/Hillary backers need to get out of their eyes and ears.

Sloan Bashinsky Trump makes himself look guilty talking about firing Sessions and Mueller. Trump's son and cronies make Trump look guilty. Here's what Putin wanted. He wanted the Magnitsky Act repealed. It was passed to keep a bunch of Russian oligarchs (mafia) out of America and not able to use American banks to launder their money. Read Bill Browder's RED NOTICE about how the Magnitsky Act was passed by Congress over strong resistance from President Obama, Sec. State Clinton and Senator Kerry, who was hoping to replace Clinton as Sec. of State. Also, Putin wanted US sanctions against Russia over the taking of the Crimea in Ukraine, and other sanctions lifted. The thinking is, quid pro quo, Trump got word to Putin he would try to do that, if he was elected. Putin tried to get Trump elected with leaks. Putin succeeded. Trump and his cronies and son and Session caught caught lying about never having talked with the Russians about Trump's campaign, Trump, etc. Here we are. Watergate, and worse. DNCgagte (which did in Bernie Sanders, and worse).

Sloan Bashinsky If the folks in the White House lips are moving, don't matter which party they belong to, they are lying until proven otherwise.

PRESIDENT ABDUL EL-SAYED?

Etch this man's name in your mind.

His name is Abdul El-Sayed.

After years of (OPENLY) being groomed by George Soros, he has been handpicked by the Left to be their next “champion” of Hope and Change.

He is 32 years old, born in the USA, and an extremely well educated Muslim Doctor in Detroit Michigan. (Education funded by Soros)

He is handsome, articulate, charismatic and smart.

He is sympathetic of the Muslim Brotherhood, and is running for Governor of Michigan. Which is Step 1 in his preparation to run for President of the United States.
He has the potential to be Obama #2, but far more openly Muslim.Abdulrahman Mohamed El-Sayed is an American physician, epidemiologist, public health advocate, and politician.
He has announced his candidacy for Governor of Michigan, running as a Democrat.
Wikipedia:
Born: October 31, 1984 (age 32), Michigan
Awards: Rhodes Scholarship; Paul and Daisy Soros; Fellowships for New Americans
Education: University of Michigan, Ann; Arbor (BA); Oriel College, Oxford (MA, PhD); Columbia University (MD) Political party: Democratic Party.
In 2020 he will be eligible to run for President!.
Democrats' mouths are watering in anticipation and raising money. Elizabeth "Pocahontas" Warren is already campaigning for him. Another Trojan horse?
Al Jazeera, which is widely read by Michigan's large Muslim population, is doing its best to help George Soros make him "YOUR" president in 2020!

They fix my gut with a method they probably never heard of and one is an M.D., but let me live on the street? You ask them.

I don't think this guy is a practicing Muslim, as to whether he can be "elected", the same thing was said about Obama and Trump, the word never is no longer valid when it comes to US politics! The important thing is to look far ahead and see who is propping up these people up and who benefits by their deeds, not their words, once they're elected!

If your daughters are not totally brain dead, they would know about fecal transplants for intestinal dysbiosis ... they might not be aware of how a microbiota dysbiosis can effect the immune systems and the brain, but it wouldn't take much effort for them to find out about it... IMO, it might be more effective than psychiatry and psychotropics!

I replied:


Must be a rat chewing on the cable. If my daughters ain't worried about me living on the street, why would they give a shit about my gut?

As for Obama #2, from the tout you proselytized:

Perhaps his platform will promise a camel's nose under every tent.

As for Obama2, I was just  responding to someone who had sent that piece to me, all I said was that it was plausible, not probable... given the fact that the majority of the registered voters are Democrats and growing... and given the fact that most, if not all, of the media is controlled by Democrats, all they need is somebody who is the antithesis of 4 years of an America-centric Trump administration; just like Obama was supposed to be the solution of 8 years of an interventionist Bush administration... they do play people and nothing changes!

As to your daughters, I defer to you who knows all the nuances and history of your relationship with them... but the mind and body are interconnected and treating one is treating the other... the one daughter seemed to indicate that she wanted to have a psychiatrist treat your mind directly as a prerequisite to helping you in other ways... treating your gut dysbiosis via fecal transplant might be an indirect way to meet her requirement... a way that you would be willing to go alone with that would not involved using psychotropics drugs.

Providing a place for you  should be unconditional, I agree with you on that, but they may be looking at the "whole picture", unlike you who seem to make no plans for tomorrow and let dreams or angels provide what's on your plate!!! 

I replied:


If they were looking at "the whole picture", you would not have written that to me. I actually do look at the whole picture. They are stuck in their own little myopic lives, relatively speaking. You, too, trying to assign everything to the "physical", clueless of what is all around you and inside of you. Including, it is "plausible" that Americans will elect that Muslim man, president. That would be a great candidate for the Democrats to make sure they never have another candidate in the White House.
