President of the Czech Republic Encourages Taking up Arms to Protect Themselves

While still in France, I have been hearing much talk about the confusion between helping refugees and also not helping them. Seems most of these refugees want alot out of the kindness of people and it is getting hard for country men and women to continue helping them. These people who left their own country might really be considered cowards, many say, leaving their own country behind and not defending it. Now they want daily handouts for free. Is this a natural or predetermined action?

So when these transients do not get their free feed, they act out like terrorists? Who knows? Or are these people really behind a purpose? Or are these people being manipulated for a darker agenda?

The European Union required that all nations give up their right to bare arms and leave all the guns to any armies. But the problems that came out of that are huge and the armiesmay not always be there for their people.

Milos Zeman, the President of the Czech Republic, tells citizens to arm themselves in order to defend against terrorism.

Quote: “In the wake of all the recent terrorist attacks, Czech President Milos Zeman reportedly  told his constituents that they should arm themselves for what he called a potential “super-Holocaust” carried out by Muslim invaders. He wants to make sure that people are able to defend themselves until help arrives. Shortly after he said this, the Czech government decided to show their support by proposing a law allowing citizens to fight back against terrorists using their own guns. They will vote on it later in the summer. If other countries did this, terrorist attacks would not be as widely devastating.

Earlier this week, for instance, knife-wielding terrorists killed seven people and injured countless others. Since the UK already has extremely strict gun laws, the pedestrians were largely helpless. To protect themselves, the best that some could do was throw bottles and chairs at the attackers. However, if any of the pedestrians had a gun, they could have easily stopped the attackers from hurting others.

And a week before the London bridge attack, terrorists invaded Marawi, a small city in the Philippines. Since the civilians were largely unarmed, the jihadists were able to break into jails and release captured extremists, steal guns and government vehicles, set fire to buildings, and kidnap helpless people. Undeniably, if the citizens were armed, the situation would have likely turned out much differently.”

It is becoming harder to travel these days.

Dig Out that Seed and See if it is Growing!

sproutIf you have planted seeds before, you know that when a seed sprouts it has very tender roots and if you dig it out to see them, you probably will break off some of the beginnings of this plant.

Now know I am not a President Trump supporter, I did not vote for him. Yet I wonder if people let him alone enough to makes his own roots in the oval office if perhaps we will see the best from him.

Media has to bash his every move and keep North Americans polarised, that is just what they do.

So I want to chime in on his movement to dump the USA involvement with the Paris Accord on Climate Change.

No one really got to read that Accord, did you?? The whole written agreement? President Trump did.

prestrump

What did he see that he did not like for our country? An overburden on the USA that costs in ways we do not need to pay, is how it appears to be summed up.

Remember he is dumping the ole systems of control and manipulation through what appears to be good for people.

As a business CEO, now of the USA, he is working to revive our country with a different perspective than the previous lawyers that held this office. Can we give him some space to do this work?

So many north americans know how deeply corrupt and dishonest our government has been in the past, passing bills and laws that favor the rich and powerful. The Paris Accord is one such document, that does not benefit North America.

enviroment consciousness

We can still work on our Atmosphere and Enviroment together, we know what needs to be done. We do not need some law that binds us to paying out money to those who do not really care about climate change. This is what the Paris Accord is. It is an effort to bully money away from hard-working USA citizens for reasons we are never told.

Now it is also obvious that President Trump is clueless about the environment and sustainability practices, and that is where the citizens need due diligence. Know he had a certain background in which he probably never once went camping in our excellent public parks and knows only the insides of high dollar hotel rooms. This is where “we the people” must assist this administration to keep in mind the need for sustainability, even with or without climate changes.

Climates change, every so many decades, as it is the natural cycles of earth. Humanities heaviest burden of Earth is that of ignorance of these cycles and how to work with Earth to continue to supply us with our needs.

garbage

Replanting what we take, maintaining the quality of water and oceans, taking the time to recycle what we have and using only what we need helps to preserve resources for the future.

Take out 1000 forest trees and plant 3000 more, will keep the supply healthy. Any business knows not to ‘run out’ of the basic materials for their livelihood. So it is with Earth and the way nature works.

This is something that must be taught to every generation! When I see whole townships living with large garbage dumps, scurrying around the piles of stench like rats, I wonder where their parents were and why did they not get any teachings about health, and preserving cleanliness. There is a missing link there.

plastic boat

Convenience seems to overrule common sense, that when you drink out of 30 plastic bottles a month there is a creation of garbage. Where does that go?

No one thinks about it. Drink and toss. {Or make a boat!!??!!}

Now multiply that  times every piece of garbage any one household has and we have trash to the likes the world has never seen. Back 100 years ago this was not a problem!

This is NOT a government problem, but a problem on every community, township and city level. If our Earth is heating up due to mankind’s creations of cars and industry, there are ways to change it enough to harmonize with Earth.

But world-wide agreements and accords never insure the commitments of their people, just to superficial laws that few enforce those who seem out-of-bounds. It takes so much more than that.

Most of the public schools in the USA teach about recycling and basic environmental issues. We are moving in the right direction.

community work

Many schools also have community gardens for teaching and supplementing the cafeteria food.

Most children know not to pull up a plant to look at its roots as it will most likely die. Yet here we have someone who was voted and won to be our President and now all people are pushed to do it to remove him, before he can get good and necessary things done. How crazy is that?

dandilion roots

Can we apply this logic to our new president? Can we give him some room to really do the work he envisioned?

Yes, he is uncommon to this office and makes it hard for people to understand that to change things for the better, he needs to be uncommon.

“We the People” need to supplement and supply the “balance” of his work through our own communities.

It is time WE work out our concerns without running to daddy and whining helplessly.

We must model what we wish to see in our country, rather than keep bitching loudly. The cacophony of discord is not productive, and keeps many people focused on blaming some one for things they COULD do their own self.

Dump the Paris Accord on Climate Change and keep our President Trump rooted in his office so he can trim back the governmental spending so USA can be strong again.

USA Congress Infected with Deadly Impeachmentitis Virus

usa pressses

How many presidents have we had who were shouted at to leave the office for their choices, or face  impeachment?  Impeachmentitis Virus is what I read somewhere and it is infectious.

At least since 1990, all presidents heard the call for their impeachment; this virus enters in to rooms of Congress and spins around.  So now how many people are infected and focusing on impeachment rather than their job?

This virus has infected this Congress, which then places our tax dollars going to work in jeopardy. When the focus of Congress man and women turn to retaliation and spite, you know the virus is now deeply imbedded.

impeachments

Instead of focusing on an excellent health bill reform, citizens get crap, a fast concoction of liquid ass-ests that favor the health insurance industry profit margin alone. Fast shit.

Instead of rethinking how to deal with our joined boarders with Mexico, we get some half back modern version of the Berlin wall.

Remember that the Berlin wall came down and so it was a waste of money in the long run and really it ruined so many lives, divided those who were unified. My friends in Texas say their state is filled with 40% Mexican and part Mexican people and so it would be like Germany all over again.

Oh and guess what, this money is coming from the chopping up of Medicaid and other social programs that get cut. So when you are sick, perhaps go kiss this new wall.

fast lane

This is the outcome of FAST.

Fast everything.

You wait in line at a store behind one person for about two minutes and already the clerk must say how sorry she is for your wait. Huh? Those two minutes were good for me as I looked again to see if I got all I came for. What is the hurry?

Want it Now is insanity.  The Itlatian Cream Cake made from scratch is baked at a certain rate for perfection. Microwave cakes are no match for the slow baked version.

How can congress really put together a Health Care Revision in just a few months? They cannot and that is why the one they made is so rejected. It will be a horror for most people if it passed. All rates will go up even more. Even with Obamacare they boasted no insurance rates would go up that they would go down, but the second year they all went up more and gave less coverage. The salami slicing is in full force.

Father Checking Son's Forehead for Fever ca. 2003

This new fast-lane bill specifies that the older you get the higher your premium will be. It is under the idea that youth are healthy and elderly are very sick so they need to pay the bigger premiums. Health insurance companies need to make big profits off of sick people so the money must come from somewhere.

If you are elderly, you might need to just check out early as you will never afford any care under this bill as it hikes up costs for elderly at over 800%.

In a conversation I heard man in France suggest that perhaps he should go to the USA and open a Morphine Elder Care Retreat, where they check in to check out; slowly increasing the morphine so they do not know they die early. Or perhaps the USA government is looking to the movie Logans Run for inspiration.

poor middle class

Another twisted part of the fast-lane health bill is that they forgot that most USA citizens have little to no retirement savings, so they will not be buying health insurance at all. They will be lucky to eat.

Through the years, large corporations cashed in their workers retirement programs stealing people’s ability to live without a job when they get older. Now people are bitter and they are not making as much money either, due to the economy.

Our new president touted that the economy would be an easy fix for him, but I guess he never said ‘when’ he would get around to it. He is too busy with trying to pass fast-lane crap, swatting tweets, and cutting the government back to a manageable size.

The cutting of government staff and offices is essential and yet it may be why this virus broke out in the first place. It is not about Russia.

The fact that he talks to Russia could really be good thing, diplomacy. We should not be at odds with that large country. The media are trying to beat an old ‘cold-war drum’ that already is rotten and decayed. The millennials were not really there, and do not know or care about that history. It may be time to truly just work the peace angle instead.(?)

Our new president has been in office not even a half of a year and already the virus is popping up everywhere. The cacophony of uncooperative voices just shows that Congress is infected; thus our whole country suffers. Even our once funny comedians, like Bill Maher, has lost all humor as he suffers greatly with this virus. He is painful to watch as are so many of our elected.

Instead of steering this new president with wisdom, knowledge and research so that more informed views and outcomes might be created, the head pounding repetition of past mis-takes are now the only thing an infected person can do. He did this, he did that, cough, puke.

Not a Dress Rehearsal

“In a society in which nearly everybody is dominated by somebody else’s mind or by a disembodied mind, it becomes increasingly difficult to learn the truth about the activities of governments and corporations, about the quality or value of products, or about the health of one’s own place and economy.

In such a society, also, our private economies will depend less and less upon the private ownership of real, usable property, and more and more upon property that is institutional and abstract, beyond individual control, such as money, insurance policies, certificates of deposit, stocks, and shares.

And as our private economies become more abstract, the mutual, free helps and pleasures of family and community life will be supplanted by a kind of displaced or placeless citizenship and by commerce with impersonal and self-interested suppliers…

we-da-sheeple

Thus, although we are not slaves in name, and cannot be carried to market and sold as somebody else’s legal chattels, we are free only within narrow limits.

For all our talk about liberation and personal autonomy, there are few choices that we are free to make. What would be the point, for example, if a majority of our people decided to be self-employed?

The great enemy of freedom is the alignment of political power with wealth.

This alignment destroys the commonwealth – that is, the natural wealth of localities and the local economies of household, neighborhood, and community – and so destroys democracy, of which the commonwealth is the foundation and practical means.”

~ Wendell Berry

Immigration Ban Considerations

President Trump placed a ban on immigrants arriving from certain countries, as he told us he would when running. Now the news is filled with all kinds of stories we might not have ever heard before.  Blog deleted…. topsy turvy we go onward!

Update: Ban is reversed! 

My personal opinion revolves around President Trump’s great bias against people and groups of people, like Women, people of other ethnicity than Caucasian, and religious people other than Christianity, so in essence he revolves around a tiny 2% of humanity and so are his concerns. What a very small man indeed.

How can such a man rise to an office that serves a greater people when he only sees 2%?

How do a nation of multi-cultural backgrounds, geneology, religions and expressions just sit back and watch?

Stepping in to a New Year

Today it is quite the marvel to read how the present media rage  is working to have Americans agree to a war with Russia. Stirring the pot by evicting their diplomats, sniveling about hacking…. come on now…. is this ridiculous or what?!! The USA government does their own hacking and spies on everyone world-wide of their interest.

Why do ‘they’ really want war? YES< They love to go to war when the USA  economy tanks.

slight-of-hand

It is their “go-to” practice to keep the public focused angrily towards anyone other than their bad governance.

So will the North American public eat this bowl of jello politics? Congealed shavings of nit-picks. Seems that war can be caused by trivial pursuits.

Guess that is why so many people backed Mr. Trump, as they want our economy and pursiut of happiness to be the real focus of USA government. USA has great talent.

There is no reason why our economy should be frail, but it is.

People are talking everywhere that their children cannot make a living, that too many people are without jobs, that food is so expensive, that rents and mortgages have gone past the reasonable and affordable point, in to the crazy zone.

I keep waiting for their digital stamp to place on all real news and a stamp for fake news. What fun that could be! Yet it shows that those who are illogical in government are panicing.

Moving into 2017 will be interesting; for those very people who think they can manipulate the public through eternity may find themselves no longer being listened to. The alternative people have come to replace the insane.

Mr. Trump is proof that there is another way to construct our collective states towards sustainability, and opt out of undeclared wars.

Wars spend taxpayers money and the governments black market money in unthinkable amounts and leaves the people poor and hungry.  Yet the tales told makes people believe they will come out better if they agree to beating down another country. What a twist of logic.

Would it not be a better investment to do commerce with other countries, and to help other countries become strong economies as well?

peace_war_money__miguel_villalba_snchez__elchicotriste_

As the hippies pointed out, that if the war money was just spent on the states and people, that we would be an amazing country.

Step lightly, choose wisely, for this next year could be our greatest or just plain sad.

I am not sure why people are saying 2016 was a bad year, seems like there was some admirable changes for the better and for all people.

Guess if you want to promote a war, you got to get people angry and focused on the anything and anyone “bad”. Each story builds in to a feeding frenzy and reactive measures.Mistakes happen.

It is our duty to our own families to keep our focus on what is good and right no matter where we live in the world.

Happy New Year! (Just another choice!)

Holiday Swing

The Holiday Season is in full force this winter. It is something many people love and enjoy. It is something that many people hate and detest.

Cause of cheers and beers, the holidays come on like a bull, demanding certain social rituals that really do not fit all.

define

The poor cannot participate. They just have their meals, or no meals, and just feel left out. They wonder why it is that in such a giving season, why is it that they are left behind. The santa myth is one they already had to dispel to their children.

It is also a season where all the religions fight over whose season it is anyway. They each want sole custody of the perfect holiday and celebration they teach in their own specific belief system.

Even with all the religious teachings of sharing and giving, it is the righteous that get downright mean and nasty this time of year when confronted with the diversity in celebratory ways of this season.

So many people are celebrating how much they can spend on their friends and family, hoping for the grandiose thank yous and gushing, blushing. Seeing this all over the world, really, as it is not one country that celebrates.

Each seasons is full of natures reality and purpose; to grow and recede, to warm and then cool, to provide food and then pause. Winter was when the food would appear thin until spring and even summer in most places, so the push was to harvest enough to get by during the dormant season. This harvest season remake is now popularly called Christmas. Today people of all faiths participate in a more shared way so that it includes more people.

Many of the former rituals used during this time got a remake, as in a ‘santa’, evergreen trees, giving, sharing, feeding, laughing and getting drunk.

One day the conglomerate of winter celebrations may merge in to something that is not so exclusive. Maybe it can be shifted so that people are not so desperately lonely, or hungry. It is a very strange mix that people blindly redo every year.

How does the rich cope, by watching “A Christmas Carol” and then go feast on cookies; moral lesson was included in the day.

To Fake or Not To Fake

So much chatter at the morning coffee with my friends about the “Fake News” pandemic we are having. I am not sure if I should get the vaccination or not.

They are livid as the news is barely news to begin with. Most stories can be told in one sentence Bill keeps repeating. And of course there goes, the 9-11 was fake. And how/who random personalities might also be fake (ie, clone).

Oh, faked elections, fake Russian hacking, and indecisiveness on which of the lesser evils running for president were more fake. The guys were on a roll.

fishy-news

Part of my mind wonders off thinking fake news is nothing new. Most gossip is fake news.

Partial discussions may as well be fake news. Telling your parents you got better grades in school than you did, fake.

We live in a world fully accepting “Fake”.

We now have fake boobs, fake penises, fake hair, fake bank accounts, fake art, lip sync; it is just part of life, is it not?

Some people revel in the fakeness, just for fun!

We have fake butter, fake foods, fake leaders, fake personalities, oh, and just so you know, Hollywood fakes alot!

What about that poker face, fake. Fake it till you make it.

I remember that time my family stopped at a motel for the night, sister and I raced to their large swimming pool. Getting there first I leaped in, damn, this water nearly ice it is so cold!  As I popped my head out of the water, shivering, looking for the closest ladder out, my sweet older sister standing cautiously at the edge asks me if the water was cold. “No, its fine”  was all I could say without my chattering teeth giving it away, Faked! Oh yea she jumped.

Standing Rock Issue Gets Army Backing

What were the odds that the protest at Standing Rock would truly block the passage of an oil pipeline under a lake? But it happened. The Department of the Army will not allow it as planned. (Story)

standing-rock-protest

Yet, as it has been stated, and  a deep focus of this event is the corporate ‘self claimed immunity to laws” of the USA.

The protection of life-giving water is the primary focus. For when water becomes polluted with oil, it kills life. Even small seepage, a slow drip will end life and life forms.

So even as there is a sense of victory, there is also that dread of that corporation ignoring more laws and ruining the water of the land.

This is not over by far. Please pray, voice and share what it going on there. It was the international media awareness that forced the players on the side of the corporation to step back. Perhaps this is the placebo effect, perhaps it is real. But when you are dealing with liars, cheats and law-breakers, you must still stand watch.

standing

Keep this alive for as long as it is needed, through social media, as it is the way the law-abiding people can thwart those who think they are above the law.

This pipeline goes for 1,172 miles,  costing $3.8 billion,  yet the corporation ignores all laws calling for an environmental impact statement of their project, and instead filed for many tiny segment, chopping this long pipeline as thought it was many separate projects. This is how they pretend they have the right to do what they want. But the oil that is intended to flow through it is one long stream of oil, thus one project in need of a real environmental impact statement. That statement would definitely deny the corporation access.

Why did this pass without following the law? Money. Not money itself, but the greed of investors who have money to buy off law enforcement, governors, politicians and by-pass the laws of the land. (I heard even Mr. Trump has invested 2 million dollars to get royalties/profits off of its end product, which is selling oil to China. This needs immediate attention before Trump gets in to the presidency he will vote for his investment. He is a man of money and very little ethics.)

The deeper issue then is “can greed really take life away from anyone, just because they have the money to do it?”

This is a call to stop the rich bastards from pretending they have more rights that others, that they can kill indirectly anyone who they deem as less-than-them.

water-is-sacred

This is a call for our Earth and the REAL protection of our water resources which is suffering greatly planet wide. This is a call to stand up for what is right and healthy.

It is time to flush the “money trump card down the well of wrongdoing”.

Voice your concerns through social media and all outlets that form a peaceful resolution to this ugly project. It is the people all over the world talking about this who help bring forward those of good consciousness to come and assist in this legal battle. Many thanks to all who have spread the word!

Water is life.

Without clean water, most life forms on earth will die, fast. Only rocks remain in a barren world.

If you do not think so, then you can try going without water in any form for a month and let us know what you then think. (yes, that means all your sodas, teas, wine, beer, soups, most foods….)

A plant without water just dies. 6542-000060

What the most controversial part is that these people pushing for the oil pipeline through rivers and lakes all drink water. Guess they buy the bottled kind so they think that water is just a commodity like a soda. Perhaps they have never been camping where they must drink from a river, nor swam in a lake. Perhaps they never went fishing in their whole life. Maybe they mix all their foods with beer which they think it is water-free.

No one has the right to pollute or jeopardize the purity of water!

Stand together and we will make the difference. We preserve the purity of water for our children.
