ARE YOU BEING EMOTIONALALLY BLACKMAILED?

WHAT IS EMOTIONAL BLACKMAIL AND HOW WHY DOES IT HAPPEN?

When someone else makes you responsible for their feelings.

And if you don’t do what they want –

They use obligation, guilt, and fear to pressure you into doing it.

Either you make me feel good…. or I will make you feel bad.

HAVE A SAFE HAPPY EASTER !

STAY STRONG FRIENDS !

LYRICS

Even if we both break down tonight
And you say you hate me, and we go to bed angry
I know everything will be alright
I’ll be here waiting, I promise I’m changing
I just need A little time to show you I’m worth it
I know that I can be a difficult person
I’m a stress case, drive you up the wall when I’m workin’
Actually, I’m probably worse when I’m not, you don’t deserve it
Make you nervous ’cause you know I’m a break soon
Every time I do, I say somethin’ that hurts you
Actin’ like I’m gone, but we both in the same room
I don’t like to be wrong, which I know you relate to
And I know I make you feel like you’re at the end of your rope
That’s when I look at you and tell you I’d be better alone
Just the pride talkin’, isn’t it? ‘Cause both of us know
I’m the definition of “wreck” if you look into my soul
Comes out the most when I feel I’m in a vulnerable place
Made a lot of mistakes I wish I knew how to erase
When I’m afraid, might get distant and I push you away
But no matter the case, I’ma do whatever it takes even if Even if we both break down tonight
And you say you hate me, and we go to bed angry
I know everything will be alright
I’ll be here waiting, I promise I’m changing
I just need Time (oh)
I, I need time (oh, oh)
I just need time (oh)
I, I need time (oh)
Time (oh), time (oh)Yeah, way before I bought you the ring
We were fighting back and forth like you were wearin’ the thing
Two passionate people not afraid to say what they think
Lead to passionate conversation when it’s hard to agree
You know me well, sittin’ on the edge of my seat
Lookin’ at life, over analyzin’ everything
Always depressed, tryna find a better version of me
Searching for somethin’ I know’s prolly right in front of my feet
Stubborn as me? Maybe not, but you’re close to it
Got a lot of issues, I’m tryin’ to work through ’em
Going to therapy for you’s somethin’ that’s worth doin’
When I know you been there for me through all of my worst moments
And I know it hurts knowing that I carry this weight on my chest
Making it difficult for me to open up and connect
Lot of regrets, I apologize for all of the stress
That’s not what I meant to do, you know I love you to death even if-Even if we both break down tonight
And you say you hate me, and we go to bed angry
I know everything will be alright
I’ll be here waiting, I promise I’m changing
I just need Time (oh)
I, I need time (oh, oh)
I just need time (oh)
I, I need time (oh)
Time (oh), time (oh)
I just need time (oh)
I, I need time (oh, oh)
I just need time (oh)
I, I need time (oh)
Time (oh), time (oh)

Issac Newton

Issac Newton was one of the greatest scientists of all time.

He laid out the three laws of motion in his masterpiece Principia Mathematica. He discovered the law of universal gravitation, the famous inverse-distance-squared law. Also he wrote deeply about light and optics after performing his own original experiments on light.

This guy invented calculus. He rejected the authority of the great Greek philosopher Aristotle and promoted experiment-based science. He challenged the established laws, theories, and ideas.

What was interesting to me was he was a very deep believer in a higher power. I never knew that..newton-photo-pound

He spent decades delving in the secrets of alchemy and science, but even longer studying the Bible, theology and church history.

Newton wrote 1.3 million words about theology and Biblical prophecy. He was a Christian. This all amounts to far more words written about  theology than all of Newton’s  writings about science combined.

His passion for the study of God’s word the Bible and it’s history was equally as consuming as all his interests in science and physics.

At the time of his death, he left more than a million words of notes on the Bible.

Six years after his death, Observations Upon the Prophecies of Daniel and the Apocalypse of St. John was published. Not only was Isaac a great scientist but also a dedicated student of the Bible.

One of Newton’s writings about the bible I will share with you.

Newton found multiple examples throughout history of reformations by God:

The worship which is due to this God we are to give to no other nor to ascribe anything absurd or contradictions to his nature or actions lest we be found to blaspheme him or to deny him or to make a step towards atheism or irreligion. . . .

For as often as mankind has swerved from them, God has made a reformation. When the sons of Adam erred and the thoughts of their heart became evil continually, God selected Noah to people a new world. And when the posterity of Noah transgressed and began to invoke dead men,

God selected Abraham and his posterity. And when they transgressed in Egypt God reformed them by Moses. And when they relapsed to idolatry and immorality, God sent Prophets to reform them and punished them by the Babylonian captivity. And when they that returned from captivity, mixed human inventions with the law of Moses under the name of traditions, and laid the stress of religion not upon the acts of the mind, but upon outward acts and ceremonies, God sent Christ to reform them.

And when the nation received him not, God called the Gentiles. And now the Gentiles have corrupted themselves, we may expect that God in due time will make a new reformation. And in all the reformations of religion hitherto made, the religion in respect of God and our neighbor is one and the same religion . . . so that this is the oldest religion in the world.

Aristotle and Plato lived about four hundred years before Christ and their impact on Western culture has been considerable. Newton was certainly heavily influenced by Jesus Christ and the early Christian writers, for he quoted them abundantly in his writings. Newton was born on the same day in 1642 that Galileo passed away, and he used many of Galileo’s findings in developing his famous laws of motion. Isaac Newton died in 1727.

Real quick – Galileo Galilei, though famous for his scientific achievements in astronomy, mathematics, and physics, and infamous for his controversy with the church was, in fact, a devout Christian who saw not a divorce of religion and science but only a healthy marriage: “God is known by nature in his works, and by doctrine in his revealed word.”

Very inspiring that the father of modern science would be so interested in the word. My personal take on the bible is many kings and rulers have tried to destroy it. You were killed if you had possession of one. Somehow it survived thousands of years. Coincidence?

We respect whatever you believe, all religions, all races, all people with a beating heart. However – I find it striking that these men who were so brilliant wrote about the word.

I also do not belong to a church at this time, the word of god is in your heart, your blood, and it needs not money or showmanship but real love and belief in the light.

“What we know is a drop, what we don’t know is an ocean.” – ISSAC NEWTON

Political Leaks

Emails leaked, the DNC leader resigns due to the email content… So where is our democracy? Has it been hijacked?

DNC_corruption

If Clinton takes in all this money from other countries for her comfort and the foundation – what does that really mean? What exactly is that money in exchange for? You think I would give you hundreds of thousands of dollars and not want anything back?

We must be United. Washington said we would never fail from foreign enemy’s, but from within. They knew before we did.

Were Just Getting Started

Ted Cruz and John Kasich have dropped out of the Republican presidential race.

There will still be many challenges to overcome, but we are with Trump. Strength has been gaining from the much needed right in the GOP.

We might have a leader with balls to put respect all around the world. China and Putin are powerful, and yet – they respect Trump.

Ted Cruz is done and out of the Republican presidential race, making headway for Donald to be the GOP Presidential nominee.

This was a shock as it seemed destined just a few weeks ago that we would end up a contested convention this summer. Cruz had insisted that he would stay in the race until June 7.

Following a painstaking loss to Donald Trump in Indiana, John also suspended his campaign.

Kasich was there all the way till the end – it has been reported that he called his closest friends saying “My heart is not in this.”

Donald Trump, who emerged as the presumptive GOP nominee Tuesday night -when Ted Cruz dropped out.

Trump needs 1,237 delegates needed to win the nomination before a contested convention. He has currently has over 1,000.

They put everything on the line in Indiana – and still got beaten.

We wholeheartedly respect these two men, and wish them the best of luck. They are still gears in the American engine.

I believe it takes heart and guts to run for President. Cruz and Kasich had both.

Mossack Fonseca

Unfortunately, all citizens have to pay taxes. We all need to pay our fair share. Nobody looks forward to it. It isn’t easy or fun – but it’s important in society that we contribute to our streets, roads, first respondents, and contribute to education.

In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes – Benjamin Franklin.

Today it was recently discovered that a global investigation has been started on Mossack Fonseca – the world’s fourth-largest offshore company provider. The Panama Papers, a hoard of 11.5m documents, show how long this activity has been occurring.

There was a massive leak of documents recently discovered, that for the first time, how active this bank was helping wealthy and powerful leaders cheat our system. They assisted in helping individuals to do everything in their power, both legal and illegal, to avoid paying taxes.

We rarely report illegal events, but as the USA tax due day slowly closes in, we feel our duty as Patriots to point out this disgrace of cheating our country and the world.

We are about America, and as much as I question the practices of the IRS, this discovery of documents paints an ugly picture of pure fraud on many levels.

The documents reveal the bank is a mill of offshore tax evasion, and tax havens. Data from the World Bank, IMF, UN, and central banks, show cash hidden between $21 and $32 trillion, where registered incorporation agents and law firms operate in small Caribbean countries.

They make the laundering of money and the “disappearance” of the wealthy, into untraceable numbers hidden behind shell companies, possible. The list ICIJ revealed 100,000 HSBC clients who had been dutifully avoiding the payment of taxes.mossack_FRAUD_stats_2

Thirty Two Trillion Dollars of Fraud. Unbelievable. These are immense numbers and it shows that the tax code needs to be corrected and enforced. Sadly, a better system is desperately needed to be put in it’s place. If you steal 32 trillion dollars – you are stealing from the world. Everything goes up when this injustice is done including inflation, devaluation of currency, and core corruption.

I believe taxes should be lowered, even for the rich. But when people cheat – it ruins this concept, and taxes are forced to rise.

We can only hope this will be prosecuted and I would also point out the huge amount of world leaders involved in this. Shocking to thenumber28.

The tax code needs to be over-hulled, simplified, and enforced.

Saint Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day 2016!

saint_valentine2

Today, on Febuary 14th, 2016 – let’s continued be inspired. To learn how to give more, to love greater, and to believe in the power of Virtue.

On Valentine’s day we see all the red flowers, cards, and a cycle of expectations and material things. While this is good in it’s own way, it isn’t the point and certainly not the only way to show love.

Love is beyond those pink ribbons, chocolate boxes, and post cards. While I give them myself, due to an expectation, we shouldn’t be required to.

Give flowers every month, chocolates every week. Give love everyday. Why not?

Why do we even have Valentine’s Day?

You can Thank Saint Valentine.

saint_valentine3

Saint Valentine was a Roman Priest during the reign of Emperor Claudias, who had persecuted members of the church at that particular time.

Claudias had enacted a law that prohibited the marriage of young people. This was based on the hypothesis that unmarried soldiers fought better than married soldiers – because married soldiers might be afraid to die if they had wives or families to go back to.

The legend claims that soldiers were sparse at the time so this was a big inconvenience to Emperor Claudias. Valentine also refused to sacrifice to the pagan roman gods, as Christ never commanded this.

Valentine lived in very harsh and critical times, and he had the courage to go against this confinement edict.

The church established that marriage was very sacred and believed that it was to be encouraged. This immediately presented a problem to the church about what to do.

The idea of encouraging people to marry, under God, was what Valentine was all about. And he secretly married them despite the edict law.

Valentine was eventually caught, imprisoned and tortured for performing marriage ceremonies against command of Emperor Claudius the second.

One of the men who was to judge him in line with the Roman law at the time was a man called Asterius, whose daughter was blind.

Valentine performed a miracle through God and Christ when he prayed with the daughter, and healed the young girl of blindness and sickness.

Because of this miracle, with such astonishing effect, the roman judge Asterius himself became a Christian as the result.

In the year of 269 AD, Valentine was sentenced to a three part execution of a beating, stoning, and finally decapitation.

The last words he wrote were in a note to Asterius’ daughter, and then he signed it, “from your Valentine.”

Valentine was killed because he did the right thing, he believed in marriage, love, and that men have the right under god to be married and united.

Valentine has come to be known as the patron Saint of Lovers. Before you enter into a Christian marriage, it requires a priest to secure your vows, under God.
saint_valentine1To this day, White friars Street Church is one church that house the remains of Valentine. Today, many people make the pilgrimage to the church to honor the courage, and memory of this Christian Saint.

Currently he holds the #1 lead at twenty eight percent.

Donald J Trump Leads at 28%

We endorse him and wish him luck tomorrow at the Iowa Caucus 2016 event on February 1st, 2016.

Our country has done great things, putting a man on the moon just touches the surface on the freedoms and social conquests for humanity that the USA has established.

I fear what the world would become without the USA. However corruption, politics, greed, and gluttony has destroyed a once mighty nation. Our forefathers are rolling in their graves.

We NEED to Make America Great Again.

I believe in his pledge, his vision, and trust him to get the job done correctly and honorably.

We here at thenumber28 salute you, Mr. Trump. Godspeed.

Currently Donald J. Trump has surged past Ted Cruz in Iowa, while Hillary Clinton is holding a three-point lead over Bernie Sanders, according to the final Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics poll before the Iowa caucuses.

Trump leads Texas Sen. Ted Cruz by 5 points.

Trump captures the support of 28 percent of likely caucus-goers, compared to 23 percent for Cruz, 15 percent for Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and 10 percent for former neurosurgeon Ben Carson.

On the Democratic, the data shows Clinton up over Sanders 45 to 42 percent, with just three percent for former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley.

I believe in America, I believe in Mr. Trump.

In God We Trust. Go Trump !!

Actor Bob Hoskins, in Roger Rabbit dead at 71

I loved who framed roger rabbit, and Bob has now passed.

He will be missed, another great loss.

Bob Hoskins, the pugnacious British actor known for playing gangsters, tough guys and working-class gentlemen in such films as “Who Framed Roger Rabbit,” “The Long Good Friday” and “Mermaids,” has died, publicist Clair Dobbs said Wednesday.

Hoskins was 71.

His passing comes nearly two years after he retired from acting following a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease.

Hoskins was perhaps best known for 1988’s live-action and animation hybrid “Who Framed Roger Rabbit.” In the comedy, he played detective Eddie Valiant, who hates “toons” — cartoon figures who live in a separate showbiz world bordering Valiant’s 1940s Los Angeles — and takes up the task of proving the innocence of the cartoon title character, accused of murder. The film was the second-highest grossing movie of 1988, after “Rain Man.”

He followed the turn with performances in a variety of films, including 1991’s “Hook” in which he played Smee, the pirate assistant of Captain Hook; 1995’s “Nixon” as FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover; and 2001’s “Last Orders” as the gambler friend of protagonist Michael Caine, whose pals gather to spread his ashes after his death.

Hoskins was nominated for an Oscar for 1986’s “Mona Lisa” as a cabdriver who establishes a relationship with a high-priced call girl. Caine was also in the film. Hoskins won both a BAFTA and Golden Globe for his performance.

Robert Hoskins was born on October 26, 1942, in Bury St. Edmunds, England, the only child of a bookkeeper and a cook. He dropped out of school at 15 and took jobs as a truck driver and window cleaner, among others, before falling into acting by accident: A friend was auditioning for a part and Hoskins, who was waiting nearby, was asked to try out. A natural, he got the role.

“I fit into this business like a sore foot into a soft shoe,” he told the UK paper The Telegraph in 2009.

In Britain, he gained fame for his performance as a Depression-era song-plugger in Dennis Potter’s miniseries “Pennies From Heaven,” later turned into a 1980 movie starring Steve Martin.

Though he had a handful of recognizable roles in films after “Pennies” — including 1980’s “The Long Good Friday,” 1982’s “Pink Floyd the Wall” and 1985’s “Brazil” (in which he played a gleefully malevolent repairman), it wasn’t until “Roger Rabbit” that he broke through to mainstream American audiences.

That film drove him a bit nuts, he told The Telegraph.

“I think I went a bit mad while working on that. Lost my mind. The voice of the rabbit was there just behind the camera all the time,” he recalled. “The trouble was, I had learnt how to hallucinate. My daughter had an invisible friend called Jeffrey and I played with her and this invisible friend until one day I actually saw the friend.”

It was his daughter, however, who set him straight.

“My daughter, when I came back from filming in San Francisco, she said ‘Dad, slow down, slow down. You’re going barmy, mate.’ And I was.”

Always a steady and straightforward worker — no “Method acting” for Hoskins — he appeared in at least one production every year from 1972 until his retirement in 2012.

“There’s two things I love about this business. One’s acting and the other one’s getting paid for it,” he told the UK paper The Guardian in 2007. “The rest of it is a mystery to me.”

In one of his last roles, he played the elf Muir in 2012’s “Snow White and the Huntsman.” In the 2011 TV miniseries and Peter Pan prequel “Neverland,” he played Smee — a character he had portrayed in “Hook.”

But true to his working-class roots — The Telegraph described his natural voice as “cockney as jellied eels” — he hated to put on airs.

“I met a little old fella in Regent’s Park when I was walking a character around. He said, ‘You are who you are, ain’t you?’ and I said, ‘Yeah, I am who I am.’ And he said, ‘That’s good. I grow roses,’ ” Hoskins recalled. “And we sat talking about roses all afternoon. It was wonderful.”

Hoskins is survived by his wife, Linda Banwell, and four children.

The President Moves us Forward

Tonight is the 28th of January – State of the Union –

We hope everyone had an amazing new year, and this year will be even better!

First 28th of the year – we are inspired by god and his wisdom – so as I try to stay positive as I break through the difficult times.

This State of our Union speech was on tonight given by the Prez. This is the 6th union speech given by President Obama. So, I gave it a go.

I really don’t know – but I do hope the President can delivery. I want to believe him. 5 years later – I just want to get us all moving on the same page. We balance each other.

Like 9/11 – America needs to be united before we can take on our Debt and world challenges. One thing he did say was climate change is a fact – and I do continue to feel that proved consecutive year after year, records in all.

The year of action. That’s what 2014 is all about for President Barack Obama, and it was the underlying theme of Tuesday night’s State of the Union address.

Felony DUI for Justin Bieber

EDIT: 9/17/2021 = WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES. I am glad that Justin has become an amazing human being and this is in his past. The post is here to let you know we all make mistakes, and we must not make the same ones twice.

Wishing him the best.

Drunk Driving Isn't Cool
We have a responsibility to our community not to drive intoxicated.

Children, elderly, mothers and fathers are driving the streets every single day.

Do you know someone who was affected by a drunk driver?

This just happened yesterday at 4am Miami time. He retired right into DUI and resisting arrest. Check out the scope:

Justin Bieber was charged with drunken driving, resisting arrest and driving without a valid license after police saw the pop star street racing early Thursday morning, Miami Beach police said.

“What the f*** did I do? Why did you stop me?” Bieber asked the police officer who pulled him over just after 4 a.m., according to the arrest report.

Bieber, 19, was released from a Miami jail an hour after he made a brief appearance through a video link before a Miami judge, who set a “standard” $2,500 bond Thursday afternoon.

He strutted out of the jail dressed in black, with a baggy hoodie covering his head. His pants appeared to be baggy leather. Bieber briefly sat on top of a black Cadillac Escalade, where he waved to screaming fans, before he was chauffeured away.

Bieber was booked into a Miami jail after failing a sobriety test, Miami Beach Police Chief Raymond Martinez told reporters Thursday.

Bieber “made some statements that he had consumed some alcohol, and that he had been smoking marijuana and consumed some prescription medication,” Martinez said.

A Miami Beach officer saw Bieber driving a yellow Lamborghini in a race against a red Ferrari in a residential area of Miami Beach, Martinez said. The cars were speeding at about 55 to 60 mph in a 30 mph zone, he said.


The officer pulled Bieber’s car over, but the singer was “was not cooperating with the officer’s instructions,” Martinez said.

“At first, he was a little belligerent, using some choice words questioning why he was being stopped and why the officer was even questioning him,” he said.

He allegedly ignored a police officer’s request to keep his hands on the car while he did “a cursory patdown for weapons,” the report said.

“I ain’t got no f***ing weapons,” the arresting officer quoted Bieber as saying. “Why do you have to search me? What the f*** is this about?”

The arrest report describes Bieber as having a “flushed face, bloodshot eyes, and the odor of alcohol on his breath.”

We are shocked that this young man is making all these terrible decisions in life. Thank god nobody was hurt or killed – drunk driving is very serious and I doubt this was the first time Mr. Bieber participated.

We hope you give back to the community and fight drunk drivers like yourself, abandon this lifestyle Justin and hire some advisors. And maybe get some limo drivers?

Alcohol was involved

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) 32,885 people died in traffic crashes in 2010 in the United States (latest figures available), including an estimated 10,228 people who died in drunk driving crashes, accounting for 31% of all traffic deaths that year.

Since NHTSA began recording alcohol-related statistics in 1982, drunk driving fatalities have decreased 52% from 21,113 in 1982. Since the inception of The Century Council and our national efforts to fight drunk driving, drunk driving fatalities have declined 35% from 15,827 in 1991. (Source: NHTSA/FARS, 2011)
