Michael Grab has mastered the art of stone balancing. He explains how he does it. “The most fundamental element of balancing in a physical sense is finding some kind of “tripod” for the rock to stand on. Every rock is covered in a variety of tiny to large indentations that can act as a tripod for the rock to stand upright, or in most orientations you can think of with other rocks. By paying close attention to the feeling of the rocks, you will start to feel even the smallest clicks as the notches of the rocks in contact are moving over one another. In the finer point balances, these clicks can be felt on a scale smaller than millimeters. Some point balances will give the illusion of weightlessness as the rocks look to be barely touching. Parallel to the physical element of finding tripods, the most fundamental non-physical element is harder to explain through words. In a nutshell, I am referring to meditation, or finding a zero point or silence within yourself. Some balances can apply significant pressure on your mind and your patience. The challenge is overcoming any doubt that may arise.”

These dudes are fucking legit. They don’t just show up one day in court, either, they actually make friends with the kids and let them know they have a support system and that there are people in the world who care about them and will always have their back. And less important, but also cool, is that the few times a couple of them have come into my cafe, they’ve been super friendly and polite and when I told one of the guys that I noticed his Bikers Against Child Abuse patch and wanted him to know how awesome I thought he was because of it, he got kind of shy and blushed and said, “The kids are the awesome ones, we just let them know they’re allowed to be brave.”

My blog is a zero dollar blog, thank you very much Mrs. Feinstein.
But seriously, who the hell do politicians think they are trying to dictate who is granted nature’s rights?
This is a prominent DEMOCRAT senator from California. Senator Diane Feinstein. She is justifying why the bill of rights does not apply to everyone. She introduced a bill that would make the Freedom of Speech valid only for government-approved and government-licensed news media.
In case you don’t know what a right is, I will remind you of the words in the constitution…
In order to prevent abuse of power by the federal government…
Congress shall make no law abridging…
The freedom of speech.
The right to bear arms.
The right to practice religion.
The right to protest…
What the fuck.
Freedom of Speech is for every single American, Senator. It’s what gives me the RIGHT to say that you’re a fucking moron, and it’s a travesty to this nation that you are in a position of any kind of influence and power.
This is absolutely not okay.
California has a funny idea of what democracy and freedom means, and I hope that she gets booted out of the Senate sooner rather than later. That’s ridiculous. I’d like to see her “verify” where in the hell it says freedom of speech is for “educated” professionals; the last time I checked most of our earlier American politicians weren’t exactly Doctorate holding geniuses.
