1 Jacket + 4 Dresses = More Fab Glam-Centric Ideas
+ A New President Has Been Elected … Now What?
(Fabulous Fall Styles + There’s More To Life Than Govt. + Child Labor in Fashion)
OK, here’s the latest … and let’s get going, because this will be the next to last blog issue for the remainder of the year. (I’m taking a December hiatus.)
Below, are more fabulous outfit ideas for the glam-centric (glamorous eccentric) in you, or the sensible fashion plate in you — explore — let them carry you through the new year and beyond. Theses are altogether transitional-seasonless-timeless-gorgeous-practical, fashion-for-keeps. Order now, wear forever, is pretty much the idea.
Indeed, we’ve got a new president … like it or not, (some do, some don't) and no single person could or would have pleased everyone, that’s impossible. Thank goodness there’s more to life than government. The more deeply we understand this, the better. Frankly, being governed is overrated, presidents tend to be largely more talk than anything else, as there are bigger powers at play. So relying on big brother is mostly a loosing game, the sooner we take responsibility for our own lives, the freer and happier we shall be, and more likely to live in a brotherhood of man, rather than in a divide & conquer system that needs our discord in order to survive and thrive. #FoodForThought — *Below, I have some guidance regarding this idea … it may help y’all feel better.

Here's Your After Election Recommended Reading — Especially prudent for the independent thinkers among you. We don’t give ourselves enough credit — we have both the intelligence, the talents, and wherewithal (mostly) in order to govern ourselves. (Hint, being a reactionary does not help!) It’s just that … that’s not something we’ve had the opportunity to practice, nor been told is possible. It is high time that we begin, and there’s no time like the present, to pick ourselves up and dust ourselves off and be our own keeper. Because politicians will ALWAYS let us down and government is seldom an answer to people’s problems. Best to take care of one another in whatever way we can. Practice kindness, empathy, compassion, understanding … stop waiting for the right president-elect-savior to come along, most are sold-out even before they take the helm. We the people have more in common than not, let’s be more loving toward one another. Solutions arise out of cool heads prevailing … it is UP TO US. Decades of selling out (wall st. govt./the war machine) has led us to this point, but we can be better for each other than any leader ever could. — OK, these are my thoughts on the matter + some reading to follow that thread. Also, going forward, (if you're the voting kind) give 3rd parties more serious consideration, reject the status quo, stop participating in a broken system that does not serve you.
To Make America Great, Trump Should Fire Himself and Let the Future Take Over — “Bleeding edge science is now confirming what the brilliant economists Mises and Hayek said many decades ago: Central planning in complex systems is not only impossible, it’s inevitably destructive. — According to an analysis by mathematicians at the New England Complex Systems Institute (NECSI), society has become far too complex for representative democracy to work. And it’s been that way for a while. — In fact, according to complexity theory, the United States would probably be better off without a president. — So, the best thing Trump could do, if what the NECSI data scientists are saying is true, is fire himself and take it easy for the next four years.”
The Mind-Blowing Truth of Living Free in an Unfree World —“It isn’t necessary,” Browne writes, “to join a massive campaign to reconstruct the society in which you live, nor do you have to patiently re-educate everyone you deal with. There’s a way that depends entirely upon what you choose to do. You can be free without changing the world. You can live your life as you want to live it — no matter what others decide to do with their lives.” — How is this possible, you ask? Two words, attributed to Socrates, sum up the first and most important step to living a truly free life: “Know thyself.”
Forget the Elections: 13 Ways to Make Empathy Great Again — If your only source of information is the media, it’s probably hard to believe this is true. (This goes for alt-media, too, unfortunately. Which, I’ll be the first to admit, isn’t without its own biases.) — But if you’ve never hit the streets and looked square in the eyes of people of all stripes — even those who you wildly disagree with — it’s easy to dehumanize “them.” Hate “them.” See them as the “other.”
The End of Politics: Blessed Are The Meek — “…the presidential elections are absolutely irrelevant to our vision of the future. And the absurdity you are witnessing this year is simply the last gasps of a dying breed. — F*ck it. Let it die. Walk away. — In our vision of tomorrow, politicking, especially in the name of “security,” or, more hilarious, in the name of “compassion,” will be considered abhorrent. — Two reasons… 1. Good ideas don’t require force. 2. Politics, as it exists today, is backed by violence. — Today’s idea of compassion — voting for a gang of violent thieves to use force as a way to make less-fortunate people dependent upon them — is tomorrow’s idea of blatant barbarism.”
