Not to feel exasperated or defeated or despondent because your days aren't packed with wise and moral actions. But to get back up when you fail, to celebrate behaving like a human—however imperfectly—and fully embrace the pursuit you've embarked on.

However, not all truth is what it seems and some of us recognise the truth but still ride the storm. Victory can come within that storm knowing what should be admitted and still riding to victory all the same.

Mans best friend used to be the Dog...
Now it's the Microwave
That post was on 31st May 2009, #840.

It has taken a long time to prove it wrong, but in today's news it proves a dog is one of the only creatures that gives unconditional love, friendship and devotion. well like everything, you have to pick the right one. :xyxthumbs

And another couple of thought provoking issues, it begs the question did those released, fight against those who should be imprisoned? If only life was black and white, it never is.

Under no circumstances have I lied. Sure enough, nothing I said was true. However, I dreamed a dream quite different from the truth and all my remarks were truly accurate and in accordance with it. The reason I seek an apology from you all.

Mr President are the police in your country corrupt?

Yes of course they are. They are there to prevent violence and keep the peace. Their pay is low and they find in this poor country they may not get any. So you may be stopped for a traffic offence that did not happen and an on-the-spot fine is pocketed by them - quite right too. They may confiscate illegal goods that are completely legal. You may be arrested and jailed when you did not commit an offence and someone will pay a hefty fine to get you out - the police take some and the rest goes into the government coffers - very excellent.

Are Government Officials also corrupt?

How dare you certainly not. Some corrupt mining company directors seek mining permits to ravish our resources. They are told that to get a mining permit certain Government Officials could help them through the red tape. They pay up $8 million and they get some and the Government the rest - the people get little - very excellent indeed.

With an election coming up on the 20th of this month, people will remember they voted us in to reduce the corruption and once again we stand on this platform as we have done so. No corruption in Government at all it is now only the evil Mining companies absolutely at fault.

I implore the people to vote on December 20, 2023. There vacancies on Wednesday to help put the ballots into boxes!

According to Jacques Mukena, Senior Governance Researcher at Ebuteli Institute, the election will most likely not be completely free and fair, but believes Tshisekedi and the CENI are aware of the fact that they would be under closer scrutiny than in 2018 because more local and international observers would be watching. Additionally, candidates such as Delly Sesanga have already declared that they would believe the Catholic Church’s opinion of who won the elections, not CENI’s.[3]

Sinking the ship.
Some people in life are so absolutely determined to be Captain and if it does not happen they will sink the ship even though they endanger themselves and all the crew.
Sometimes it is more about getting the hump or sulking as the former Prime Minister of the UK Edward Heath did in 1978. Margaret Thatcher became the leader of the Conservative Party and later Prime Minister. Heath got the hump so much that it continued until his death on July 17, 2005
Did Queen Elizabeth like Edward Heath? The two reportedly shared relatively opposing world views, and in Ben Pimlott's book Elizabeth II and the Monarchy a source revealed the Queen "was never comfortable with him." Equally, Heath is reported to have found his private audiences with the monarch "frosty." 8 Nov 2022
The Incredible Sulk, as it was known in political circles, had endured for more than two decades, and would continue until he died.: https://www.independent.co.uk/voice...inister-what-was-he-really-like-a7984996.html
