With all the ranting, blaming, and complaining about who is responsible for the USA’s shut down, I thought it time to remind everyone laughter promotes Emotional Intelligence.   These two cartoons are my political rant of the day.

LAUGH A BIT MORE – Jay leno jokes

“We’ve got the government shutdown, but the beginning of Obamacare. You know what that means? You can now complain to your doctor about the government making you sick.”

“How many are worried about a government shutdown? How many are more worried about it starting back up?”

“I’m glad the government has shut down. Think about it, for the first time in years it’s safe to talk on the phone and send emails without anybody listening in.”

Thank you Jay Leno.

Finally, a Laughing Yoga Video


In addition to laughing more,  think about what matters; finding common ground makes solutions possible and solutions matter more than blaming and complaining.



This post was inspired by Word Press’ Daily Prompt  Your country asks you to run for Prime Minister of the ‘Net — do you accept? If so, what will your platform be? Mine:  Practice kindness, laugh more, hate hate, remember what matters.
