Dear Palestinian People

palestinianflagI know this is beyond a complex issue, but I can’t take it any more. Please leave Gaza and the West Bank. I know you have a rich history. I know you are a proud, hard working people, I know you are lovers of the land. I know it will feel like defeat if you leave, but I can’t watch your suffering any more.

Please, get out!

Go to the UN and demand a new home.
Demand the best home and land on the planet.
Demand the right of return for all Palestinians to this new homeland.
Demand in your constitution that there must always be a Palestinian majority in your country; just like Israel demands there must be a Jewish majority.
Demand Israel pay reparations for the next 50 years.
Demand the US, EU, RU, UK, SA, and all the Nations and who sat by watching the death of your children and your suffering with complacency help find a place to your liking.
Demand that activists for justice and peace help be your voice and consider what is for your best interest.

Let Israel wallow in the blood they split.
Let God take care of their crimes against your children.
Let Israel be surrounded by all the other hostile Arab nations night after night Arabs, who didn’t give a shit about you or your children.

Dear Palestinian People, please WALK AWAY!
Take all you can from this, demand the best land to grow your olives and oranges again and make it clear without any doubt that no one can or will ever take this new land away from you or your people again.

Dear Palestinian People, if you do not do this now or soon you will become extinct. Genocide is in your future, get out now and let Israel be the problem of the nations that surround her.

Be free.
Live in Peace.
Pray for the dead and your ancestors and prey most of all that you do not become the bullies and murderers your oppressors have become.

Legalised Cannabis’s Corporate Takeover

Something to be aware of

NPR
smells like pot cash, where do you put it? 45:min in
(fyi- the interview before this was very interesting – the internet of everything – jeremy rifkin, zero marginal cost. 39:min in) play

NOW – you knew this was coming too…

Man Gets FIRED Because Employer Saw Him On The News Buying LEGAL Marijuana!

…what if you’re not a pot smoker and you walk by someone smoking or your neighbor/roommate stinks up the house and because of these other people’s second hand smoke you fail a drug test at your job and are fired?

you knew that’s coming too…

imagine if you’re from out of state, a state that has harsh drug laws, you can’t risk going to Washington State or Colorado because you may be forced to breathe second hand pot smoke and could fail a drug test upon your return.

you knew that’s coming too…

the pot restrictions in other states incumber interstate commerce now, that can not stand. Pot is not liquor; washing out of your system in 24 hours – the active ingredient; THC, in pot sticks around in your system for almost a month. Therefore, any US state that criminalizes pot should ban all state employees from going to Colorado and Washington State.

You know that’s coming too…

Spreading Seeds

seedThe Idea: Spreading Seeds

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” – R Buckminster Fuller

To engage the will rightly one must also engage the heart and mind.

Goal: To build an economic self-sustainable community that becomes an open-source role model for other like minds to copy, build upon, adjust to their community needs and share.

The community will be transparent in its financials, its values will embrace clean safe shelter, clean water and food, the creation of work with meaningful purpose guided by just and sound ethics, the development of common sense education and good health, and the promises of free and open communication to all who participate.

We reach out and invite visionaries Dr. Michael Hudson, Neil Barofsky, Max Keiser, Ronnie Moas, Howard Buffett, Pierre Omydiar, Larry Page and other open and like minds to guide us financially in order to secure clean land and help us develop a sound economy through micro-economic sustainable structures.

We will strive to bring forward an enlighten social consciousness incorporating the modern thoughts, writings and lectures by such people as ; Christopher Hedges, George Galloway, Russell Brand, Robert Steele, Ralph Nader, Ron Paul, Jacque Fresco, Medea Benjamin, Edward Snowden, Jeramey Scahill,  Birgitta Jonsdottir, Julian Assange, Matt Taibbi, Chelsea Manning, Jane Hamsher, Luke Rudkowski and The Fellows at Juice Rap News.

We invite innovative speakers and practitioners who embrace both old world common sense practices while developing healthy innovative technologies that help us remain true to our self-sustaining goals while keeping them in balance with our community values.

The world is not wanting of ideas, but ideas are in need of focus.

This idea is not hard, in fact, it’s older than dirt.

The hardest step is going from zero to one.

Let us begin.

Bowe Bergdahl

Here are the video interview from July 14, 2009
Taliban Video Shows Captive US Soldier In Afghanistan

Part 1

Part 2
Part 3

This is a very complex situation – I have not studied it at any great length.

I have listen to this interview several times and of course there is no way for me to know if this is real, staged, intentionally set up or all of the above.

Is this man a traitor, a military spy, a CIA agent, or a foolish young kid stuck in the cross-hairs of a bad situation?

The circumstances and details of his release are also unknown to me.

My opinions are therefore based on more or less “gut feelings” which is not a basis for facts nor should it be regarded as the truth.

However, now that he is released we will have the opportunity for better insight and perhaps better able to judge for ourselves what really took place in 2009.

As for the exchange – my gut feeling is that the administration and military will find his actions as treasonous and they will lock him up for life in order to send a message to all those who join and express any descent.

My advice if he did walk off either by intent or by accident, keep your mouth shut and get out of this country, find a better place to live that will grant you protection and immunity, ASAP.

To Bowe’s parents, get your son a very good lawyer and psychologist who is well known and on the cutting edge of science to protect his civil rights.

I got a gut feeling your real nightmare has just begun.

Rethinking the Future

IMG_4581“We should do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living.

It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest.

The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living.

We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory he must justify his right to exist.

So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors.

The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living.” – R Buckminster Fuller

What is commodity fetishism – it is the perception of the social relationships involved in production, not as relationships among people, but as economic relationships among the money and commodities exchanged in market trade. As such, commodity fetishism transforms the subjective, abstract aspects of economic value into objective, real things that people believe have intrinsic value. — Basically, when your STUFF is more important than people.

Santa Barbara – Middle East

sbIt’s all over the news this Memorial Weekend.

Some guy, the perfect gentlemen, started the long holiday weekend by killing his two roommates and their guest with a hammer and some butcher knives – blood was oozing out from under the door.

Then after uploading a youtube video and his 141 page manifesto went off on a rampage with three guns and over 400 bullets.

Three guns, he said, because in the end he was going to use two of them to shoot himself in the head and wanted three just in case one jammed.

Setting aside that this guy was a complete mental case covered in a nut job; which unfortunately ended up being the page 8 story in this more than bizarre doom video game tragedy — If given a time machine I’d go back 23 years, have a sit down with his mum and highly encourage her to go ahead and have the abortion. I’d gently put my hand on her shoulder and tell her knowingly, it’s not worth it, it’s really not worth it, allow this seed to die.

In the end, and I feel relatively sure that if this strange creature could not get his hands on a gun I reckon he would have used that beautiful band new shiny black BMW to mow down a lot more pretty blondes and poor-assholes-not-even-half-white-slobs thus causing way more damage than he actually did.


Now, I also understand why the father of victim Christopher Martinez is angry, and I took special note that he was very concerned about the little children at Sandyhook, he said after all, he had a whole 20 years with his son.

Course that’s not what I would have said (knock on wood) in his position, but I understand that people react in different ways when under unimaginable stress and grief.

Quite honestly, I really don’t know what to say or think about this whole event cause every time I try and wrap my head around it I keep thinking of all the little kids we [the good ol' USA] are droning and slaughtering everyday around the world in the name of freedom, and I know that unless we really really dig deep we will never ever hear their names uttered across our TV screens, like, Christopher, Katherine, Veronica or Elliot.

Ya know, they tell you in the military that if you ever get caught by the enemy keep saying your name so the person(s) who captured you will regard you as a human being. “Hi, my name is JOE, my MOTHER named me JOE after my FATHER JOE. Do you have a MOTHER and a FATHER? What are their NAMES? Mine is JOE. Tell me YOUR NAME,” You get the idea.

When I think about this whole Santa Barbara scenario and then think about the drones in the middle east I just go numb.

obama_drones_children_460

Then after a while my mind drifts off and I begin to wonder, what were the names of the three Asian kids?

SUCK IT BIG OIL!

don’t let them buy it and hide it
Students Design a Car That Gets 2,824 MPG

ev_6_prototypegasolineA three-wheeled, teardrop-shaped car has won Shell’s (RDSA) Eco-marathon Americas competition, a yearly contest that pits teams of students against each other in a race to build energy-efficient vehicles.

The winning group, from Université Laval in Quebec, overcame technical setbacks, including excess friction short circuits, to achieve an efficiency of 2,824 miles per gallon. To put that in perspective, the prototype could travel from New York to Los Angeles on less than a gallon of fuel. And that figure is still well below the 3,587 miles per gallon the same school achieved last year. (Université Laval has won five out of the last six Shell competitions.)

The marathon was held in Houston, where teams competed in one of two classes: Prototype, which focuses on maximum efficiency, and UrbanConcept, which takes into account passenger comfort. Cars enter one of seven categories to run on conventional gas and diesel, biofuels, fuel made from natural gas, hydrogen, solar, or electricity. Over several days, teams drive a fixed number of laps around a circuit, traveling as far as they can on the equivalent of a gallon of fuel. Organizers calculate their energy efficiency and award $2,000 to the winner of each class.

Mater Dei High School, in Evansville, Ind., took top honors in the UrbanConcept category for its flying-saucer-like gas-fueled vehicle, reaching an efficiency of 849 mpg. Ford’s (F) electric Focus manages a relatively scant 108 mpg on city streets.

So if a group of students can build a hyper-efficient vehicle, what’s standing in the way of carmakers doing the same? For starters, these prototypes are built to conserve fuel, not for everyday safety and speed.

Still, the projects are inspiring troves of innovative concepts. For instance, an electric-battery vehicle from Saint Thomas Academy in Mendota Heights, Minn., featured a 3D-printed steering wheel that included a button for radio communication between the driver and the rest of the team. St. Paul’s School, from Covington, La., fashioned the seat in its diesel vehicle from kombucha, a microbial culture that can be consumed as tea or, in this case, turned into vegetable leather. Perhaps Detroit’s automakers are the ones who should be taking notes.

the banks own us

bankI plane to write about this extensively over the next few weeks, and of course it’s all very simple and something we all know, deeply suspect or feel in our bones, but we keep trying to fight it in the same old fashion way.

In short, and in the fewest words possible, the banks own us.

Sure there are some who can skate for a while on top, but in the end they will find a way to crush even the skeeters.

I submit that there is enough historical evidence and documents to come to this conclusion. However, facing this grim truth is a whole other can of worms.

There are three immediate solutions:
1. Buy your freedom for as long as it lasts.
2. Form an autonomous community of trusted and like mine, become self-sustaining.
3. Revolution.

Regardless, no matter which way you go the banks will always get their cut on the front, the middle or the back end of things.

And though it may seem like many are waking up, don’t be fooled. Complaining is not action, and be assured the indoctrination runs deep.

What I hope to do over the next few weeks is post links to solidify my conclusion for public consumption.

If you are aware of what I am  working towards and wish to share your findings through links or documents that BRIEFLY explain this observation and  conclusion please feel free to post them in the reply.

I’m not looking for conspiracy theories; the Jesuits or Illuminati, I’m looking for documented  direct observations over the past two centuries from people who have experienced this same revelation. have written about this  and the solutions they drew upon.

Cirque du distraction – Bundy Ranch

In this ring we have the infamous team of Hannity and Stewart
hs
Both Stewart and Hannity skipped, dodged and flipped over a lot of details that essentially makes them both political hacks – plenty of twisting and turning ensues.

You’ll need to catch up on this one…
Stewart: Apocalypse Cow!
Hannity: “He’s Obsessed with Me”


just a few obvious points:bundy-ranch-cow-facebook
Hannity made it sound like the BLM created a mass grave of cows – it was 6 – hardly a slaughter, and under the circumstances the BLM disposed of them properly. If you saw how your burgers are made this was not that big a deal; unless you’re a vegetarian then you already know and it’s probably why you’re a vegetarian. Then he presents more spin by showing pictures of a giant backhoe digging up the cows using just the right camera angle making the viewer think some hidden genocidal slaughter took place.

Stewart on the other hand refused to address that Bundy’s family herds have been grazing on the land for several generations, he then makes it sound like our benevolent government let him continue on for 20 years more – PURE SPIN – the question should have been, why the hell did this ineffective Federal Government drag its feet for 20 years helping to put an American Citizens in this horrible position? Talk about passive aggressive. That’s no way to run a government.

side note: Here’s another example of ineffective passive aggressive government.

This whole thing is a bullshit distraction from some very important issues, what should be or rather our lack of priorities: US sending troops into Poland, interfering in the Ukraine, droning people all over the middle east; including Americans, sending military into Africa, the NSA lies about spying on Americans; which makes Richard Nixon look like a saint, Israel/Palestine (stop laughing), allowing the continued torture of human beings whilst war criminals roam free, and the endless bailing out of crooked banks with no jail time for the crimes they committed.

All of the above reaffirms that the US is too big to fail and needs to be broken up – but be aware – there’s a push to unite the US and Canada (Russiaphobia) making the upper half of the continent  one country hovering in the background, (more on that conversation here).

Bottom line is this whole Bundy thing is a big Cirque du distraction.


okay then, so whatever – if this is how it’s going to go down, if this is part of a color or heifer revolution I guess as they say, let the games begin!


Steps in, Sean Shealy of Burning Man, he wants an after-party over at the Bundy Ranch where you can run naked, enter a contest to measure your penis and shit in the water – click

and things get ugly


Here’s something Stewart’s writers could have reported on – bringing some very needed attention, exposure and could have created a sense of comradery amongst us all through this man, 84 year old Shoshone Chief Raymond Yowell – an opportunity missed by the pretend left .


In this episode of Divide and Conquer the agenda continues as we gear up again for the no choices no voices 2016 right left campaigns.

Aren’t y’all tired of this crap, yet?

How about walking away from this beast and forming an alternative self-sustaining organic community?

- anyone want to get back to the basics?
.
you are what you think
.
.

a little update:
I think Bundy is an old man and a bigot- so what? I don’t want to live near the guy. As far as I’m concerned he and his ilk should be allowed to secede, as I believe me and my ilk should have that same right.

I also think the MSM is tripping on this guy – they should pity him and say good riddance to a dying breed, but they are using this old man to divide and conquer the nation and for profit.

If they weren’t they would be talking about more important issues (see above).

So the MSM told us something we already knew, every extreme group has their morons, but this is something the corporate MSM feels they can showcase to keep the majority divided. To all those who fall for this shit, I don’t want to live near you either, if you’re falling for this crap you’re about as stupid as this old man.

Study – US Is an Oligarchy Not a Democracy

oligarchsMajor Study Finds That The US Is An Oligarchy
Zachary Davies Boren

The US government does not represent the interests of the majority of the country’s citizens, but is instead ruled by those of the rich and powerful, a new study from Princeton and Northwestern Universities has concluded.

The report, entitled Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups, and Average Citizens, used extensive policy data collected from between the years of 1981 and 2002 to empirically determine the state of the US political system.

After sifting through nearly 1,800 US policies enacted in that period and comparing them to the expressed preferences of average Americans (50th percentile of income), affluent Americans (90th percentile) and large special interests groups, researchers concluded that the United States is dominated by its economic elite.

The peer-reviewed study, which will be taught at these universities in September, says: “The central point that emerges from our research is that economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on US government policy, while mass-based interest groups and average citizens have little or no independent influence.”

Researchers concluded that US government policies rarely align with the the preferences of the majority of Americans, but do favour special interests and lobbying organizations: “When a majority of citizens disagrees with economic elites and/or with organized interests, they generally lose. Moreover, because of the strong status quo bias built into the US political system, even when fairly large majorities of Americans favour policy change, they generally do not get it.”

The positions of powerful interest groups are “not substantially correlated with the preferences of average citizens”, but the politics of average Americans and affluent Americans sometimes does overlap. This merely a coincidence, the report says, with the the interests of the average American being served almost exclusively when it also serves those of the richest 10 per cent.

The theory of “biased pluralism” that the Princeton and Northwestern researchers believe the US system fits holds that policy outcomes “tend to tilt towards the wishes of corporations and business and professional associations.”

The study comes in the wake of McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, a controversial piece of legislation passed in The Supreme Court that abolished campaign contribution limits, and record low approval ratings for the US congress.

sadists

ahSomeone asked me for a different word to describe bankers and the corporate super rich. Many words and phrases were offered, but after thinking about this for a number of weeks I arrived at the conclusion that bankers and the corporate super rich are sadists.

Sadism is a behavioral disorder characterized by callous, vicious, manipulative, and degrading behavior expressed towards other people.

Gandhi once said, “Poverty is the worst form of violence.”

When you have a small group of people who hold so much wealth, not two or three times more wealth, but thousands of times more wealth, wealth given by the earth for free, transformed and manipulated, and when that wealth isn’t put to good and moral use spread amongst the people through raised living standards, education, good nutrition and accumulated health care from thousands of years of history and public research that makes you a fucking sadist.

If you are a moral human being you know there are absolutely no excuses in this age with all the knowledge and wealth we have accumulated throughout the whole of human history that can not be efficiently dispersed for the betterment of all humans beings on this planet. There are absolutely no excuses unless, you are a sadist.

And if you think these sadist have earned and deserve every penny of their wealth and opportunity; whether by the luck of a sperm, a large collection of suckers or just plan dumb luck, that makes you their degenerate sycophant (ds).
.

It’s time to play your part, without any doubt in your words and with every gesture it’s time to decide where and with whom you stand.

ahthumb

.
.

note to self -
Hypotheses: The super rich control and own everything.
Observations: 2014 – The Bundy ranch made headway with the perceived threat of violence. 1968 – After the death of MLK black communities across the US made headway by rising up with outbursts of violence, unity under one cause. Numbers matter, Organization Skills Required, Leadership Skills Needed, United Philosophy/Cause, Doing The Right and Just Thing, Giving Up Is Not An Option.
Theory: When standing up to sadists and their boot licking toadies they will cower.
Test: TBA

.

What to do with these sadists and their ds, thoughts?
