The Heart..

According to Webster: heart, (in context)  Anatomy. 1. The chambered, muscular organ in vertebrates that pumps blood received from the veins into the arteries, thereby maintaining the flow of blood through the entire circulatory system.

In another vein, (Pun Intended?) ..you decide.

(a. The vital center and source of one’s being, emotions, and sensibilities.)

( b. The repository of one’s deepest and sincerest feelings and beliefs.)

(c. The Capacity for sympathy or generosity.)

The heart can also be the core or center of an object, project or a region, i.e., (The heart of America)

..as well as a symbol to define the suit in a deck of playing cards.

  

Love; and the Heart…

 

Love is an emotion of strong affection and personal attachment. Love is also a virtue representing all of human kindness, compassion, and affection; and “the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another”. Love may also be described as actions towards others or oneself based on compassion, or as actions towards others based on affection.

In English, love refers to a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes, ranging from pleasure (“I loved that meal”) to interpersonal attraction (“I love my partner”). “Love” may refer specifically to the passionate desire and intimacy of romantic love, to the sexual love of eros, to the emotional closeness of familial love, to the platonic love that defines friendship, or to the profound oneness or devotion of religious love. This diversity of uses and meanings, combined with the complexity of the feelings involved, makes love unusually difficult to consistently define, compared to other emotional states.

Love in its various forms acts as a major facilitator of interpersonal relationships and, owing to its central psychological importance, is one of the most common themes in the creative arts.

Love may be understood as part of the survival instinct, a function to keep human beings together against menaces and to facilitate the continuation of the species. (Source Wikipedia)

Anatomy; the human heart…

 

The human heart is a muscular organ that provides a continuous blood circulation through the cardiac cycle and is one of the most vital organs in the human body. The heart is divided into four main chambers: the two upper chambers are called the left and right Atrium and two lower chambers are called the right and left Ventricle.There is a thick wall of muscle separating the right side and the left side of the heart called the septum. Normally with each beat the right ventricle pumps the same amount of blood into the lungs that the left ventricle pumps out into the body. Physicians commonly refer to the right atrium and right ventricle together as the right heart and to the left atrium and ventricle as the left heart. (Source Wikipedia)

Betrayal; and the heart…

 

A broken heart (or heartbreak) is a common metaphor used to describe the intense emotional pain or suffering one feels after losing a loved one, whether through death, divorce, breakup, physical separation, or romantic rejection.

Heartbreak is usually associated with losing a family member or spouse, though losing a parent, child, pet, lover or close friend can all “break one’s heart”, and it is frequently experienced during grief and bereavement. The phrase refers to the physical pain one may feel in the chest as a result of the loss, although it also by extension includes the emotional trauma of loss even where it is not experienced as somatic pain. Although “heartbreak” ordinarily does not imply any physical defect in the heart, there is a condition known as “broken heart syndrome” or Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, where a traumatising incident triggers the brain to distribute chemicals that weaken heart tissue.

The heartland of America…

 

Heartland is an American term referring to states of the Union that – as in the words of one commentator – “don’t touch an ocean,” whether the Atlantic or Pacific. At least as early as 2010, however, the term Heartland is used in a non-derogatory sense to not only refer to the Midwestern United States, but also states of the “Bible Belt” and any other states belonging to the so-called “red states.” i.e., ( Republican.)

According to the United States Census Bureau, the mean center of population in the U.S. in 2010 was in or around “Texas County, Missouri.” In 2000 it had been northeast from there, in Phelps County, Missouri. It is projected for the mean center of population to leave the Mid-West and enter the Western U.S. by the middle of the twenty-first century. (Note that when Alaska and Hawaii were admitted to the Union in 1960, the geographic center of the United States moved from Smith County, Kansas to “Butte County,” South Dakota.) i.e., ( the geographical location that I call home).  (Source Wikipedia)

Betrayal; of the heartland of America…

 

According to Webster: be·tray“al, (in context) To be false or disloyal.

Editorial: “In my humble, albeit considered opinion,” there is nothing more disloyal and false than to accept a reward, i.e., (tax remuneration) for a product (federal highway or bridge) or a service, (protection against foreign invasion) i.e., (to include invasion from foreign commerce) that is not, ..and has not delivered. “We the people” of the United States of America pay taxes in good faith to a government comprised of individuals, who either on a two, four or six year rotation, pledge to us, “we the people,” to provide protection and services at least at a minimum equal to the fees that we pay.

As “rank and pathetic” as this may sound, I for one do not believe that I or the “rank and file” American taxpaying citizen, ..is, ..or has ever received any benefit from “our” government to justify a $16 trillion debt.

Come on America, Barack Obama is not the government, nor are the 535 Congress men and women who spend “our” money. We are the government, “we the people,” ..isn’t there anyone in this country other than me who believes that we, “we the people, “are not getting our money’s worth with this group of individuals?

Think about it, I’ll be back tomorrow if everything goes well with my cardiologist this afternoon.
