The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Donald Trump Cannot Be President of the United States

Donald Trump Cannot Be President of the United States
The "grab 'em by the pussy" moment was disastrous for Trump's campaign; it reinforced the defining narrative of his sexism. But it drew his strongest supporters even closer to him, because it reminded them of the world they're losing. They want to live in an America where they can grab women by the pussy and brag about it to their friends. They want to casually use the n-word – just for the bad ones; they're not racist! – without being set upon by the PC police. They want what's coming to them, what's owed them.
And they are willing to burn down the world to get it.

What you cannot do is vote for Donald Trump and pretend that this is just another election, and he is just another candidate. It is your minimum duty as a citizen not to support a racist, sexist, unqualified, dishonest, corrupt manchild who celebrates everything that's ugly about America and not a single thing that's great about it.

No matter how left out or left behind you feel, voting for Trump is nothing short of a moral failure. It's a vicious act against the human beings, mostly women and people of color, who would suffer miserably under his presidency.
It's an act of violence against America itself, whose greatness has always been about progressing from more oppression to less – slowly, sometimes haltingly, but forward.
The promise on those red hats is to turn back in the other direction. The greatness they sell is a lie.

I couldn't possibly agree with you more.
As an American, I can't help but feel embarrassment that he made it this far. Neither candidate impresses me, but Trump is repellant.
Please pray for our country.

You have captured the essence of this man who thinks he deserves to be president while he spews forth lies and garbage to stir the minds of those who's only education has been Fox News. These are not bad people, but people frustrated by their circumstances and blindly following "The Donald" to a grotesque end. I pray that there are enough of us who see through his schemes and vote for the future of our country that our children and grandchildren deserve to inherit. This is an awesome post ... succinct and to the point :)

A disturbing and frightening image. I cannot believe that that man is going to be the next president of the USA. It is a sickenimg thought that he will be the most powerful man in the world.If you need exile? Come on over to my place.....
