"Criteria used to decide who is the person of the year"?
I ask that question because, in my opinion, to decide that this Pope, or any Pope over past 100 years, rates being selected as the person of the year, certainly, the criteria used to come to that conclusion didn't include words like:
"Truthfulness, Honesty, Righteousness, Conscientious, Integrity, Prudent, Inclusive, Openness, Honor".
However, if the criteria were to include words like these as the criteria, I would agree:
"Hypocrite, Greed, Dishonesty, Pedophilia, Rape, Lies, Bigotry, Un-equal, Obstruction, Illegal, Laundering, Protectionism".
In my opinion, any entity, and any person representing a entity that condones the blatant rape of boys isn't a entity that ought to be receiving any type of award that could be construed as "glorification".
There are yet, thousands of boys suffering from the rape and the removal of their innocence, who have yet to receive emotional or conscientious satisfaction from the entire Catholic Church, and to glorify the church by selecting a man as the man of the year, only pat the church on the back for choosing a man that behaves differently than the previous Pope.
How about the "Woman of the Catholic Church" who may as well be living in Pakistan or Afghanistan with respect to their equal treatment by the entirety of the Catholic Church, to include this Pope..., your man of the year?
How about the Gays that are demonized by this Catholic Church that purports "Love and Tolerance" in front of a microphone but denies equal treatment behind closed doors?
Thus Time, what are your criteria...., or is your selection
When you give from the heart, how you give does not matter.
When you give from your heart, the amount you give does not matter.
When you give from your heart, as your looking into the eyes of those that you are giving too,
you see "true love and appreciation".
When you giver from your heart, the sensations that run thru your consciousness is only equaled by the sensations of pure love that one feels from a child.
When you give because you can give, doesn't always net the same sensations of giving from your heart, but, to give because you can is a act that lifts your life's value to others, far above what you can ever expect.
When you give to others, you acknowledge the value of that person's life as being worthy, not to you, but, being worthy to someone.
If your "Rich", you could make so many hearts smile,
if only for a day.
If your "Rich" and you give to those that need, you enhance your value as a human being that shares his/her good fortunes, and to share is to "earn respect".
This is to easy.....
Israeli Netanyahu is the epitome of "Flawed Character" and his entire behavioral pattern continue to validate these facts right in front of the entire world to see
EACH AND EVERY DAY.
Israeli Leader Benjamin Netanyahu reason for not attending the Nelson Mandela's Memorial was his concerns for
"Security & Expenses"
Mind you, this is a man that just flew around the world, visiting every nation he could, to convince them that the Nuclear agreement that Iran just signed was a "Bad Deal", costing his nation, $hundreds of thousands of dollars.
This is a man that, per the referenced article:
" This, coming from a man who budgeted 10,000 shekels ($2,850) for his personal ice cream parlor and spent 6,000 shekels ($1,700) of Israeli taxpayers' money on scented candles for his homes."
" a report last week revealed it costs Israeli taxpayers 3.3 million shekels ($940,000) to maintain his three residences."
There were 91 Leaders from around the world this memorial, but not Netanyahu.
Here's my thoughts:
It's difficult to sit in a chair in front of the entire world, and honor a man for abolishing "Apartheid" in a nation, when you actually condone and support "Apartheid" in your own nation of Israel.
It's difficult to sit among 91 Leaders from around the world when 85 of them detest your presence, especially after you have stabbed half of them in the back.
ISRAEL, YOU GOT A HUGE PROBLEM
"men rule and they do so based on bigotry and ignorance".
In this ruling, the India Supreme Court nullifies a lower court's ruling
"decriminalize homosexuality", saying that "Courts" can't change laws, only "Law Makers" can change laws, so, the lower court's decision to change the law that deems
"Homosexuality as being a criminal act", can't be enacted, and the original law must stay in place until the law makers change that law.
Check this out:
This Law that criminalize homosexuality in India was passed during it's last "colonial-era", 100 years ago.
Thus, a law that was passed 100 years ago, has now been re-instated, and only the existing law makers in India can change that law.
Mind you, we are talking about a nation that views
"rape of woman" as serious as stealing a piece of candy out of a store.
Again, any government or any legal system is no more effective than than those who are in the seats of controls of that government or legal system.
Flawed Character in a Law Maker or a Judicial Representative equals a Flawed Government or a Flawed Judicial System, and we see it everyday.

In terms of "Lethal Drugs", Marijuana is ranked lower than Alcohol.
Since this nation, the U.S.A., has had a century long campaign to propagandize the affects of marijuana based on the flawed character of the majority of all elected law makers in the U.S. past, we have been conditioned to believe that "weed" is the ultimate "gateway drug".
However, CNN's Dr. Gupta's
about weed, is only a inkling of how even extremely educated members of the medical industry have been fooled by our own government representative's efforts to ensure that weed be demonized, and be the tool used to destroy hundreds of thousands of lives of young black men.
Access to Information is how we all gain enough information to be able to make good decisions for ourselves, and the internet has broken the seal of secrecy regarding the facts of all things, to include the facts about the true affects of weed.
Uruguay's decision to legalize marijuana is a prudent decision on a subject that has been misrepresented for at least 80 years.
Since you elected this dim wit into office, its your fault that he represents not just you, he represent this entire nation.

This Congressman's description of Muslim's as "Liars" is a despicable comment by an elected official, validating that his election was done by "Ignorant and Flawed Voters", because this type of unacceptable comments are not the first of it's kind by this Individual, and you, as a voter, should have known this as a fact of his character type.
The Republicans in the Senate have blocked so many federal appointees by President Obama that their number of blocks over the past 5 years have represented 50% of all blocked appointees by all the Presidents in this nations 237 year history.
If your a Republican, and..., now that you understand that the Republican Senators have blocked that many federal appointees, and you still consider these acts and actions by Republican's in the Senate as "conscientious decisions",
then I would suggest that you keep your mouth's shut
the next time you go to court and wonder why the judicial system has any flaws what so ever,
even as your "stripped search" after being arrested for a speeding ticket and find yourself in jail for disagreeing
with the police officer.
Obstructing justice is the attempt to stop or hinder the act of a police investigation by withholding or tampering with evidence.
The Abuse of Power is the act of purposely using your position to stop or influence a "thing" to your own desires.
The Republicans in the Senate..., acts of blocking federal appointees are acts of Abuse of Power,
and these acts directly affect the efficiency of this
United States Government, and this point cannot be overlooked.
We have allowed the Republicans to get away with
"Breach of Oath of Office"
"Abuse of Power as an Elected Official"
These acts have harmed Republicans, Democrats and Independents as well as this Nation Itself.
We Cannot Continue to allow this to take place....,
somebody has to go to jail.
Using the Death of Nelson Mandela
as a comparison to Obamacare, represent the epitome of how flawed the decision making processes are for all republican elected officials.
Using a "Black Icon" to attack another "Black Icon", by a politician who represent a political party that is racist, as expressed in opinions by "whites, blacks, hispanics & asians",
is a sign of extreme stupidity.
Rick Santorum.... You are a complete
Every time I feel a scratchy throat or a cough that suggests that I may have a bug in me, I find the nearest gym or spa that has a "Steam Room" and or "Sauna".
Physical Fitness has been part of my life since Jan. 1986, and using a steam room or sauna is something that I did to help relax my muscles after a workout, however, understanding that your body's defense against a flu is raising the body's temperature, and I use that same philosophy when ever I feel a bug coming on, and the results for me is "no extended affect" of any type of bug that enters my body.
My Advise: When you feel the first signs of a flu or cold, spend 1 hour in the Steam Room or Sauna two days or maybe a third days in a row, and you will mitigate any cold of flu germ damages that would normally cause you 1 or 2 days of shivering in the bed.
The Priorities are obvious in China and it's definitely not the people of China that tops the list.
Smog is a man made condition, and it's a specifically dangerous condition that can harm every citizen and not just some citizens.
Industry generate smog and its the leadership that either allow industry to create smog for profits, or it's the nation's leadership that put in place, rules and laws that control generated smog.
However, when the leadership is corrupt by businesses, or corrupted by "GREED", inhuman type living conditions can easily be created and this is the situation that currently exist in China.
To all China Citizens:
Remove Every Government Official
because corruption and greed is the only way that the air that you breath can end up in this condition and your lives are in danger each day that you are subjected to these types of polluted air conditions.
The Protests have been consistent in the cold weather, even to the extent that the citizens closed off the streets heading to the capital.
Even as violence have taken place and some property damage have taken place, with a huge percentage of the citizens protesting against re-joining with Moscow, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich takes his happy go lucky ass to Moscow and haves a private meeting with Russia's Putin.
There is such a thing as
"Complete Disregard of the Citizens Wants"
and it's these leaders who should be removed from office, tried for Treason & Fraud, and then placed in nice prison where extreme brutality takes place.
Every Elected Leader work for the citizens, and in this instance, when a huge percentage of the citizens demand something, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich is wrong for even considering any deal with Moscow.
For me, the 1971 move "Brian's Song", a absolutely wonderful movie, was the first time that I heard of the word "Cancer", and since then, Cancer has remained the same word of "fear" for us all, but, lately, science has begun chopping away at that word... with today's story providing a huge swing of the axe against one of the most destructive form of cancer, in the word "Leukemia".
Here's some of what's reported:
" In one study, all five adults and 19 of 22 children with acute lymphocyte leukemia, or ALL, had a complete remission, meaning no cancer could be found after treatment, although a few have relapsed since then. "
I'd call this a positive in the world of Medical Science.

There isn't a profession in the U.S. that haven't suffered from lack of quality customer services.
Doctors are over worked, Lawyers are over worked,
Teachers are over worked, and
Fast Food Restaurant Workers are over worked.
As those in these professions feel the wrath of under pay, it's the behavior of these under paid and over worked employees that cause all customers
"dissatisfaction and complaints".
CEO's & Stock Holders in companies have caused this entire problem because they are human beings who lack
The Human loves what it covets, but, what happens when the human never covets the poor?
For the fast food worker that makes $8 per hour, his pay as well as 31 others, equal 1 years pay for a CEO who is paid "$1 Mil" per year in bonuses.
Divide that number by 4, and that bonus of $1 Mil, would increase the pay of 31 employees who make $8 per hour, as well as 93 others, by more than $3 per hour, and as far as I'm concern, working as a fast food restaurant employee at $11 plus an hour, will change some attitudes.
How much does a CEO need in pay, and how much does a CEO need in annual pay?
Reducing a CEO's bonus by $1 Mil, can increase the pay of 124 employees for an entire year, which is more than enough employees to run possibly 4 McDonalds entire staff for 1 year.
ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, & FOX System of
The same 8 stories run continuously all day, by these 5 News Conglomerates, on a rotation that leaves all other good stories..., uncovered.
As you can imagine, political stories get a majority of the attention primarily because, it is those in politics that cause the most viewers to view these stations.
Additionally, you will notice how the same political leaders interview on each station in a systematic way, as if all the stations are in cahoots with each other to share the wealth of the one politician that is on the hot seat for some reason or another.
As you can imagine, it's these 5 big media companies that cause the great interest in these limited stories by only running these stories in a cooperative effort as a collective group, and oh by the way, these smart stations play the role of the propaganda machine for companies, politicians, and even the entertainment industry by placing the opposites side of any argument on the stage to perform for the camera.
Tonight, I seen this sequence of cooperative t. v. channels story planning that solidified my conclusion that they are working together by watching the coverage of the Nelson Mandela Death, in that, ABC & NBC's 7 p.m. news here on the east coast, both covered the Mandela Death, except, NBC did their coverage as the initial story of the hour, and ABC did the storm system coverage as their initial story, but just as NBC's coverage of Mandela ended, ABC's coverage of Nelson Mandela's Death began.
I know you know what I'm talking about..., and if you have ever wondered why so many stories go uncovered by these 5 stations, such as why haven't none of these big 5 stations honed on why 200 plus Republican House members signed the Grover Norquist Tax Protection Pledge, and why these House Members have not been charged with "Breach of Oath of Office" by signing a secret pledge outside their sworn oath of office?
The reason why they haven't been charged is because it is these 5 that soften these types of stories, and explode on the Obamacare stories..., all for "ratings".
Don't worry..., that's why websites like "ASK FMB" have come your rescue by covering "all" stories, and not just the 5 that the big 5 cover.
A Face Transplant shows successes unexpected
It's not often that we see a human being with a face destroyed by many different reasons, but, to consider that some day, the person that with the destroyed face, will have options to allow him/her to actually get a face transplant that actually works, is priceless.
There aren't any word in the many human language that can describe the results displayed in this story and words that I would have trouble finding, but, the words for the recipient of this new and functioning face, are outside of the ability of ther recipient to find, because no one else has been this successful in a face transplant.
Science & Technology continue to astonish us all, and for this guy, to be able to live again with a face, is a state of being that even he can't articulate.
Court papers: Toronto mayor tried to obtain tape
Crack Smoking Mayor Rob Ford
a complete embarrassment for the entire Canadian Nation.
For a year, he denied that he smoked crack, even when the video clearly showed his ass smoking crack, but, just as piss poor any's
nations judicial system is when it comes to elected officials,
it took them 1 entire year to finally get the video,
and only then did this crack smoking mayor, own up to his
What makes is so bad..., while denying it was him,
its now becoming apparent that he attempted to buy the video
from the crack dealer..... I think that's called
"Obstruction of Justice".
I find Bill Clinton particularly flawed, and I recognize that he's a politician first, which means that he can lie, and manipulate, all while not changing the rhythm of his heartbeat.
The word sociopath comes to mind, and that's what I would call former President Bill Clinton.
As an adult, there comes a time when having enough should eventually become a reality, but, for those who are warped mentally, the understanding of having enough doesn't register, thus, Bill Clinton's personality type requires the game of cat and mouse. He thrives off of the rush of lying and avoiding being caught in a lie.
When Clinton gets on t. v., he gains power, but, men of his character can easily be nullified by simply ignoring him.
I actually welled up reading this story because its a story about a child's action that provides security for the life of his father.
Gabriel Zermeño, 21, joined the Army National Guard and by doing so, his actions has allows his dad, José Zermeño, 53, to become an American Citizen.
This is a great example of "Taking Charge of Ones Life".
Instead of waiting for your government to act in your behalf, act for yourself, and the military has provided an option for Gabrial Zermeño that saves his father's mental and emotional state of mind by removing the burden and fear of being
I told you, pretty honorable for a child to do something that protects the parent.
