Hep C Awareness - Raising Funds to Raise Awareness and Get Cured

Somehow I have contracted Hepatitis C and have known about it for about five years now.  My physician, who also had Hep C tried me on the usual Interferon treatment but it did not work.  Unfortunately this wonderful man passed suddenly at the young age of 62.  I was heart broken.  Since his passing in 2013 the Medical Center in our area, Northeast Washington Medical Group has not replaced him nor offers treatment for Hep C. The only option is a Three hour each way trip to Spokane WA. 

As some of you know I have decided to not let this disease overshadow my life.  I have so much hope as last December a new drug Harvoni was released and has an excellent cure rate. The problem is that the cost currently is nearly $100,000. With so many around the world in need of a cure now it seems unconscionable that this would be the case. So much for Global Finance...

With transportation and hope to help others I am trying to raise $120,000 to bring to light the outrageous dichotomy of this dilemma.  The more people who understand how Insurance and Big Pharma play into the cure, it is my hope to raise the awareness that working class people can't afford "the cure".

For me, I have Medicare that pays 80% but I live on $1000 a month and do not qualify for supplemental medicaid. I have a daughter in High School who got her first job but does not have her drivers license yet so we drive her an hour each way to work.  She failed her first attempt at her drivers test as it was July 3rd and our little town of Colville was like a freeway that day. Since she still needs a little more training I am enjoying the time with her in the car and laughing at her DJ style of radio choices.  Even the things that go wrong have a silver lining.

I want to thank everyone who helped me so far.  We have raised $215 which will help me pay a co-pay I could not afford. I had a Liver biopsy last year and the company won't release the results until they are paid, in essence holding my medical records hostage even though 80% was paid.

I hope you don't mind receiving updates as I try to raise awareness of Hep C.  Thank You.


Ending all Wars through truth in Peace

I can hardly believe it has been years since I posted to Light of the Matter.  I have so much going on working to help those around me including myself.

When I was 16 I met a teacher, Prem Rawat (wopg.org) who began teaching at the age of 4. I had a Nirvana/NDE (Near Death Experience). When I heard him speak for the first time there was just a handful of people listening.  What he said was perfect for me as I was struggling to understand the vision I had and his words explained it as if we had been to the same place together. Through out the years I have been a part of this organization as it dawned into the world's largest Peace Organization in the world teaching way more than meditation techniques but as a beacon of light in my life.

That said, I want people to know what I know. That peace is a state of being in the moment and truly knowing how precious this life is.

As the wars continue I have continued to work for peace through writing and talking to others one by one. I hope to continue blogging and return to sharing this incredible life we are given regardless of circumstance.  I like many others struggle from check to check, month to month, day to day, breath by breath constantly reminded that I have the most precious gift of all, I got to experience Creation, the Universal Oneness of life...


A Return to Words

A year has passed since I have posted on this blog.  Part of the reason I have stopped writing is that Freedom of Speech in the United States is so threatened, so dangerous.  I do not say this lightly.  The military/police state developing is astonishing, as incidents like the Anaheim shootings and protests have displayed, besides the years of incidents like the Republican Convention and the Occupy Movement.

I highly recommend reflection and meditation, social media development and local unity for those of us who have been watching with eyes wide open throughout our lives.  This year has been a year of reflection for me.   My life on our farm within the boundaries of an Indian Reservation has been very peace filled.  I am amazed daily to hear only nature and the vibration of it with very few vehicles passing by or over head.

Every day I learn more and more about living as a non-tribal resident facing racism and frustration as everyone tries to get by.

Since Amazon carries my blog I have been notified that I must keep writing, I realized that my fear is senseless and that the more I share the more I receive.

I have been following media issues as always and have come to see the future rising up to the challenges and overcoming obstacles as life always does.

So thank you to those of you who have read my words, I will try to start sharing again.

What We CAN Do - Peace and Prosperity For Global Freedom

Egypt may just be the first to face the challenge of creating a free public electoral media ..
..with a voting system akin to ATM's ...
it must happen and it will happen, the question is when? 
or will another  Country will be the First?  

When we experience injustice in our lives the first inclination must be to stop, reflect upon our role in it, take responsibility and choose to act or not, what ever the greater good requires.

When you understand that all debts are paid then you understand FAITH. Sometimes the reward is greater when you Go Zen..."Let things come as they may come and go as they may Go.." Unfortunately this too creates an imbalance (the birth of Heaven and Hell, my benevolence creates your ignorance). So this is life, the chase for balance.  When you come to understand and stop in your tracks and see relationships as they are, then you must accept that for humanity to exist, this veil of imbalance exists.  It too is very precious and very delicate. We must be humble enough to accept amends that others deem and to thwart the strike of ignorance that sees not the mirror and to be the mirror. All of us are guilty and innocent and it is very humbling.

As for Politics, it is easy to see that what has happened in Egypt is secondary.  Change still is best served through peaceful means of election and due and fair process.  The problem is that without Fair Voice for all Candidates there can not be a fair election.  This has been the imbalance of the United States and it is ingrained in its roots from GB (Great Britain) and NA (Native America) conflicts from the start. So what we have is the ability to rise beyond the imbalance of our predecessors through awareness in order to create a clean slate.

There must be a clear and concise way to let every voice be presented without financial backing, fairly accessible from the government (The people) themselves, perhaps a free media electoral network provided for exactly that.

The problem is the Media is the Power Structure at the moment and elections are a multi-billion dollar business.  Networks have no intention of letting this avenue of thought be broadcast.  But together we can choose equal access for all candidates and a fair voting system with new checks and balances using secure social security cards and voting encryption.  It's very possible and we must have the political will to create it and the faith to trust that we do the right thing and change to facilitate it and let things fall in place as they will.

Egypt may just be the first to face the challenge of creating a free public electoral media for politics with a voting system akin to ATM's and successfully do this FIRST.  We will see, but it must happen and it will happen, the question is when? or will another  Country will be the First? 


Merging Tracks - Advanced Visualization

(Writing takes a backseat to Job and Family these days, so a quick apology for not posting as much as I would like) Pranam.

Unlike Grooves of a Record on an old LP and more like a ReWritable CD, so are the paths in life set down through eternity.  Learning the navigate the Merge is a lesson that one thing can not be rewritten without other things being affected and learning that we do not have to be stuck on tracks, depends on where we are in time.

If we could all just sit forever without risk then life would not be.  We have to work, we have needs, the joy of it is immeasurable and the risk of it exact. You can not walk across the grass without disturbing the blades of grass, but perhaps the grass has been patiently waiting to move.  We can not see things the way early tracks are, we have to have the vision to see things as they exist in pure state.

Sharing with others, then others also share. It does not matter that there are many who do not understand, those who do share such gratitude. This is an incredible path, beautiful, bliss filled with love.

When I see people around the world trying peacefully to mobilize to create better lives for themselves and those around them, I know that we all must help, because we are all a part of this creation and it is important to be awake and be able to drive in this day and age, we must take the wheel and drive...

PWK - Verbiage to correctly identify Free Religious Preference

P.W.K. - Person Who Knows (God), or Person with Knowledge - Back in the days of Rome, Leaders thought that the true understanding of God was dangerous, thus knowledge and teachings be best left for leaders of the Church, who then would interpret and teach to the commoners.  The fear being that misinterpretation would cause commoners to abandon moral authority, to have no reason for moral behavior. Those days are long gone. No Longer is a person who does not belong to one church or another have to be labeled as an atheist or agnostic, people can choose a personal path to moral choice through practice of their choice, by good behavior.

The truth is that here at the Dawn of the New Millennium millions around the planet have a grasp, knowledge and true understanding of the truth, hidden throughout the ages and mankind has not come apart.  In fact, just the opposite is true, the greater the understanding the more conscious, compassionate, brave, humble beings are in great reverence for all life.

A Master who teaches techniques of meditation so that each person can find this revelation from within, from themselves calls those who "Know" Knowledge and "People With Knowledge" or P.W.K.

Not mysterious, nothing to do with believing in magic, crystals or the occult, nothing to do with abandoning religions, or lifestyle, just simply, people around the world who know the same truth.


A Better Quality of Life for Everyone

As we watch the Middle East reflect the frustrations of the people it is important to focus in and understand what the people want. The focus of what is wanted is Global.

Better Quality of Life:
For Everyone regardless of education, financial means, religious perspective, racial definition:
  • Racial Heritage does not define people and should not be stereotyped. Embracing heritage to share the roots of culture should be used to bring people together and offers incredible opportunity.
  • Education level is important, but keeping the services of all workers wages in line with another is important in a balanced society.  The concept that people are worth astronomically more because of demand is unconscionable and must not be used to hold hostage fees for services.
  • Financial means should not limit education. Education must be available for everyone based on aptitude not on wealth.  MONOPOLIZING education and thus wages and fields MUST END.  It is a failed model and MUST NOT BE REPLICATED around the Globe.
  • Religious perspective MUST NOT be a function or edeavor of Government. We must get beyond the rites rituals and dogma and see that freedom of religion must be a personal introspection, not an organized financial network.
  • Healthy food for everyone around the planet with free trade to encourage self-reliance farming, gardening, production to encourage stewardship of the lands and integration of nature in living.
  • Clean water, wells, filtration systems as a basic right and the wise use of and understanding taught of ecology and natural order.
  • Shelter is a basic human right. Living in homes with high consuption of energy requirements has to end. Community buildings must be available in neighborhoods for use of the people.
  • People can not be packed into high rises with no ground to use of walk on and still feel human.  The living  space for human beings must not resemble caged living.
Population Consideration:
  • The goal of balanced growth the natural order has to be a result of an educated people. Each person has to choose to limit family size to what is sustainable without assistance and it must be not be a function of government.
Clothing and other Commodities:
  • A better quality of life means an exchange of products like clothing, cookware, tools etc. that are responsible recycled and exchanged to enchance not destroy the planet.
  • Art, private prodution, entrepreneurial creations all can be a function of a more balanced life.
There is not a lack of jobs, just a lack of sharing the benefit of them.
  • No longer can Corporations or the Financial Markets blindly acquess for personal gain under THE GUIDE of DOING WORK FOR HUMANITY.
  • Enslaving the working class to move the resources in and out of a community and on to specific Capitals within Countries and Around the Globe is a BAD MODEL. WAGES have to include benefits, profit sharing bringing a better quality of life everywhere.
CRIME Control:
  • There are always those who will not grow, will not contribute who choose crime and try to justify their actions but most people do not behave in this manner and those who do have psychological needs that must be addressed.
  • WE NEED MORE LAWYERS, Better ACCESS to Representation and COSTS that are UNDER CONTROL for ALL PEOPLE. 
  • JUSTICE in LAW is a Fundamental Right.  We must have a JUSTICE SYSTEM not a Legal System.
All and all it is important to understand that those who want change can't always verbalize their demands clearly, as they have been under duress for too long.  Those who want a better communities with freedom and justice for all must mobilize and grasp these fundamental human rights for everyone.


Historic Week for Freedom of Speech

Mainstream Media was upstaged by the White House this week with a Historic LIVE Stream of The State of The Union Address and live discussions on the Official Whitehouse Website in tandem with Facebook.

The most remarkable aspect of the live discussion was that it did not block comments or users.  Although there definitely was room for improvement, like staying the annoying cut and paste posters, who tried to dominate discussions, each user could control most of the activity.

If ever I criticized President Obama for failing to use the power of the technology that got him elected, for not mobilizing the disenfranchised who have been peacfully waiting for his lead, for not Running with the Incredible technology at the control of his Helm, I take it back.

I have to admit I was in absolute awe, assured that President Obama finally Ran with it, " Face in the Wind" in front and in lead. Congratuations to all who have begun down the road to listening to "The People" , the teams behind the scenes who pulled it off, but there is still much work to do.

Change comes hard and Unity takes everyone to tango, but perhaps the leaders are starting to understand that when the outcry becomes great from The Working Class, somebody is not doing their job in the evolution of democracy.

I know there are many who do not see the light at the end of the tunnel because it is clear that both political parties have long been of the same wealth and class.  TRUE Freedom of the Press, clearly a check and balance embeded in the Constitution, has been silent for so long now, crushed by the machine of corporate globalization, but not decimated. It is a twinkling back, a glimmer slowly reflecting the voices so long not heard.  Fantastic that not one was blocked on the live discussions, even mainstream media hasn't dared to do that.

On this day as the people of Egypt take to the streets, empowered by unalinable rights for fair working wages and quality of life, it should be a stark reminder as a lessen to the leaders of this Country who for so long now have turned a cold shoulder to the Working Class of America that Peaceful resolution in the form of Communications to bring to light Needs and Crys of the people is best served by listening to find resolutions through peaceful means.

It is time that businesses implement Profit Sharing, that Wages are competitive even in non-competitive markets, that morality of employers involve personal investment in the families of the employees who depend on them, that businesses not just milk the workers to reap the most profits to go duplicate and subjicate community after community in America and then around the globe.  This is the beginning of the end of irresponsibility and all parties and all people must come together and demand nothing less.

There is plenty of wealth abundant on the planet. It must be developed, nutured, created and distributed for all people without distruction of the earth.  We have the capability, the technology and desire to end poverty, to end crime and the source of crime and to work less, have more by building a society that embraces it's ability use shared time to create a new entrepreneurial spirit to enjoy life and see it as the beautiful gift it is.

Heart of Compassion - Being at Peace - Living in Gratitude

It's important to understand that everything is a culmination of everything else.

What is revealed through each of us is an ever changing role.  Often we criticize to later realize that we did not fully grasp enough to comprehend what we judged and yet we must use discernment to make choices and live.  We are all guilty and we are all innocent.

Knowing that the script is constantly changing it is important to accept and be aware that no matter how noble one's behavior, there will always be those who see the opposite.  Such it is with Great Teachers.

Often I am critical of religion, religious teachers and dogma but this must be understood in context and not misinterpreted. What is happening in this day and time is beyond the books. Individuals who experience and Know That Which Is, choose; is there or isn't there God? The ego of man often sees nothing, forgets all that came about for the revelation, the vast extraordinariness of the disclosure, failing to remember the revelation was never of just one's own doing. Often I am dismayed at how many to who this is revealed are disappointed, blame great teachers, become bitter or arrogant.  In contrast so many are overcome with thankfulness, appreciation, continuation on the ever continuing path. There is no arrival, but a pause, time to reflect and be in peace with a heart of complete compassion in knowing how much was given, how vast life is.

So do not misinterpret because of a lack of insight. If religion is an evolution in time, then the last great teaching is transforming now. No Judgement, but a genuine regard for all whom what is sought be found, to
Be Still and Know. Common Sense is not enough, Extraordinary Sense is rare.

The critique is to motivate and bring to action those who see all that needs assistance and use wealth and power, in selflessness with an attitude of gratitude, a mind of steadfastness, enjoyment and reverence of all life. Leaders who live simply that others may live, controlling without owning, honestly giving and receiving.

The future is upon the elders to let the children lead, at peace.


The Challenge is Alive. - In Honor of MLK Jr.

When you live in a community where you do not have a voice, a vote or equal rights, you have to wonder at what point does some one hear your struggle?

So it continues on Indian Reservations Across the United States today, Tribes caught in Blood Quantum laws unwilling to challenge a decision in fear of the Answer.  Today I understand more than ever the reflection of my heart that so long ago was touched by Martin Luther King Jr., the Los Angeles Race Riots, The struggle for Civil Rights.  As a child it consumed me and as an Adult I am not Free from it, because I failed to see that often the victims become the victimizers and innocent, well-wishers get caught in a struggle they tried to set themselves apart from. ColvilleOnline.webs.com/politicsoftribes.htm

It is easy not to blame anyone, easy to see that some things evolve when men do nothing and easy to see that those who do not act against that which is wrong are as guilty as those who act badly.  But life moves on and all things transform, this is certain.

As I write of the struggle of the Working Class in America it is appropriate that the following except be considered today in honor of Martin Luther King Junior:

I've Been to The Mountaintop

...Now, what does all this mean in the great period of history? It means that we've got to stay together. We've got to stay together and maintain unity. You know, whenever Pharaoh wanted to prolong the period of slavery in Egypt, he had a favorite, favorite formula for doing it. What was that? He kept the slaves fighting among themselves. But whenever the slaves get together, something happens in Pharaoh's court, and he cannot hold the slaves in slavery. When the slaves get together, that's the beginning of getting out of slavery. Now let us maintain unity.
Secondly, let us keep the issues where they are. The issue is injustice. The issue is the refusal of Memphis to be fair and honest in its dealings with its public servants, who happen to be sanitation workers. Now, we've got to keep attention on that. That's always the problem with a little violence. You know what happened the other day, and the press dealt only with the window-breaking. I read the articles. They very seldom got around to mentioning the fact that one thousand, three hundred sanitation workers were on strike, and that Memphis is not being fair to them, and that Mayor Loeb is in dire need of a doctor. They didn't get around to that.
Now we're going to march again, and we've got to march again, in order to put the issue where it is supposed to be. And force everybody to see that there are thirteen hundred of God's children here suffering, sometimes going hungry, going through dark and dreary nights wondering how this thing is going to come out. That's the issue. And we've got to say to the nation: we know it's coming out. For when people get caught up with that which is right and they are willing to sacrifice for it, there is no stopping point short of victory....

....Well, I don't know what will happen now. We've got some difficult days ahead. But it doesn't matter with me now. Because I've been to the mountaintop. And I don't mind. Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I've looked over. And I've seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land. And I'm happy, tonight. I'm not worried about anything. I'm not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.

Wish You Were Here....


A Demeanor to Hear, Understand and Repond, Appropriately

Obama must live up to the promises he made to get elected and reflect the real values that stand for America: Working Hard Brings Rewards, not Roulette is Best Won by The House. 

The Business of America should not be the same as The Government of America.  Competitiveness may prove profitable but profit is not success.  "A" Type personalities may be the face that seems to control both business and government in America today but that is not representative of "The People" as "The People" are all Citizens of this Country and we must find a better way to take care of all people.

Since moving to "Rural America" I have come to embrace both sides of the political spectrum and clearly see the voices that are missing in political representation today. There is much to be said about the struggle of the Impoverished where generations have lived simply and made do.  There is also much to say about the Entitled, who see no bounds in growth and prosperity. But what I have come to understand is the bridge between the classes that erase the classes and the systems that create the ravines in the first place.

Sara Palin was lifted by Senator McCain which was actually quite remarkable in light of the differences that the partnership spanned.  Yet I have been gravely critical of Palin because of her lack of compassion and the concern that violence would be a first option in her dealings rather than a last resort.

To the contrary, I also have been critical and concerned with Obama and Biden as well because Obama lacked a clear understanding of the sacred, also a part of the dogmatic followers not up to date with what is happening in the world on a deeper level.

It is concerning, that our Government is a form of theocracy, not so different than the regimes villainized in other parts of the world. When only Christians can hold office we are in trouble as a Nation.  It is not the club memberships that should define character but actions that should and so it is with moral interpretation.

When Sara Palin used "crosshairs" to "target" areas it was a clear example that backs the criticism that Palin lacks the temperance to lead.  That the media she loves to criticize was not calling her on it was concerning.  Yet in her defense I am going to provide her comments on the Arizona Incident, because I understand her message and I write because I am concerned that simple, working class people are the exact demographic that is being taken advantage of in the race of GLOBALIZATION.

"Like millions of Americans I learned of the tragic events in Arizona on Saturday, and my heart broke for the innocent victims. No words can fill the hole left by the death of an innocent, but we do mourn for the victims' families as we express our sympathy.
I agree with the sentiments shared yesterday at the beautiful Catholic mass held in honor of the victims. The mass will hopefully help begin a healing process for the families touched by this tragedy and for our country.
Our exceptional nation, so vibrant with ideas and the passionate exchange and debate of ideas, is a light to the rest of the world. Congresswoman Giffords and her constituents were exercising their right to exchange ideas that day, to celebrate our Republic's core values and peacefully assemble to petition our government. It's inexcusable and incomprehensible why a single evil man took the lives of peaceful citizens that day.
There is a bittersweet irony that the strength of the American spirit shines brightest in times of tragedy. We saw that in Arizona. We saw the tenacity of those clinging to life, the compassion of those who kept the victims alive, and the heroism of those who overpowered a deranged gunman.
Like many, I've spent the past few days reflecting on what happened and praying for guidance. After this shocking tragedy, I listened at first puzzled, then with concern, and now with sadness, to the irresponsible statements from people attempting to apportion blame for this terrible event.
President Reagan said, "We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions." Acts of monstrous criminality stand on their own. They begin and end with the criminals who commit them, not collectively with all the citizens of a state, not with those who listen to talk radio, not with maps of swing districts used by both sides of the aisle, not with law-abiding citizens who respectfully exercise their First Amendment rights at campaign rallies, not with those who proudly voted in the last election.
The last election was all about taking responsibility for our country's future. President Obama and I may not agree on everything, but I know he would join me in affirming the health of our democratic process. Two years ago his party was victorious. Last November, the other party won. In both elections the will of the American people was heard, and the peaceful transition of power proved yet again the enduring strength of our Republic.
Vigorous and spirited public debates during elections are among our most cherished traditions. And after the election, we shake hands and get back to work, and often both sides find common ground back in D.C. and elsewhere. If you don't like a person's vision for the country, you're free to debate that vision. If you don't like their ideas, you're free to propose better ideas. But, especially within hours of a tragedy unfolding, journalists and pundits should not manufacture a blood libel that serves only to incite the very hatred and violence they purport to condemn. That is reprehensible.
There are those who claim political rhetoric is to blame for the despicable act of this deranged, apparently apolitical criminal. And they claim political debate has somehow gotten more heated just recently. But when was it less heated? Back in those "calm days" when political figures literally settled their differences with dueling pistols? In an ideal world all discourse would be civil and all disagreements cordial. But our Founding Fathers knew they weren't designing a system for perfect men and women. If men and women were angels, there would be no need for government. Our Founders' genius was to design a system that helped settle the inevitable conflicts caused by our imperfect passions in civil ways. So, we must condemn violence if our Republic is to endure.
As I said while campaigning for others last March in Arizona during a very heated primary race, "We know violence isn't the answer. When we 'take up our arms', we're talking about our vote." Yes, our debates are full of passion, but we settle our political differences respectfully at the ballot box - as we did just two months ago, and as our Republic enables us to do again in the next election, and the next. That's who we are as Americans and how we were meant to be. Public discourse and debate isn't a sign of crisis, but of our enduring strength. It is part of why America is exceptional.
No one should be deterred from speaking up and speaking out in peaceful dissent, and we certainly must not be deterred by those who embrace evil and call it good. And we will not be stopped from celebrating the greatness of our country and our foundational freedoms by those who mock its greatness by being intolerant of differing opinion and seeking to muzzle dissent with shrill cries of imagined insults.
Just days before she was shot, Congresswoman Giffords read the First Amendment on the floor of the House. It was a beautiful moment and more than simply "symbolic," as some claim, to have the Constitution read by our Congress. I am confident she knew that reading our sacred charter of liberty was more than just "symbolic." But less than a week after Congresswoman Giffords reaffirmed our protected freedoms, another member of Congress announced that he would propose a law that would criminalize speech he found offensive.
It is in the hour when our values are challenged that we must remain resolved to protect those values. Recall how the events of 9-11 challenged our values and we had to fight the tendency to trade our freedoms for perceived security. And so it is today.
Let us honor those precious lives cut short in Tucson by praying for them and their families and by cherishing their memories. Let us pray for the full recovery of the wounded. And let us pray for our country. In times like this we need God's guidance and the peace He provides. We need strength to not let the random acts of a criminal turn us against ourselves, or weaken our solid foundation, or provide a pretext to stifle debate.
America must be stronger than the evil we saw displayed last week. We are better than the mindless finger-pointing we endured in the wake of the tragedy. We will come out of this stronger and more united in our desire to peacefully engage in the great debates of our time, to respectfully embrace our differences in a positive manner, and to unite in the knowledge that, though our ideas may be different, we must all strive for a better future for our country. May God bless America.
- Sarah Palin

The line of being Conservative or Liberal should be blurred and replaced by a deeper understanding to create a better model and let it flourish naturally. This is the Change that is needed.  

Obama must live up to the promises he made to get elected and reflect the real values that stand for America: Working Hard Brings Rewards, not Roulette is Best Won by The House.


Prevailing PEACE - Words must be the only battleground of the AGE

Peace is the message of our day. To see the conflicts others are lost in and not be lost in it ourselves.  True is this today in the aftermath of the Arizona Tragedy.  Understanding all points of view, it is clear to see that ignoring what is happening is also the wrong thing to do. 

Violence is always wrong. Words and peaceful communications must be the arena to find solutions to overcome concerns of all citizens. When the outcry is this loud, government must not ignore the cause of the effect.

It is interesting to see how media reacts. We have seen already a rush to blame the messengers, rather than understand the message.  The problem has an answer; slow down.

It is important to provide insight to politicians, to representatives, to those dedicating their lives to service in need of solutions.  This is why opinion editorials must be written by those who have nothing to gain or lose by providing clarity of the matter.  It is easy to see when you are not in the thick of it.

FREEDOM must prevail but it also is an aspect of SELF DETERMINATION, meaning that if you choose wrong the consequences also follow.  Therefore we give that others also give to us, take that others may give and forgive so that we will be forgiven without suffering the consequences.  This is the importance of education and respect to learn from our elders if our elders have wisdom to provide.  If not, there is conflict.

Therefore, SOLUTIONS are the goal of COMMUNICATIONS, Not Conflict, Not Financial Gain. This is the importance of a FREE PRESS, Free Media, FREE SPEECH. This is what we must protect.


The Dawn of Globalization - The Curve of Accountability

Global Lifestyle is an incredible lifestyle, with the ability to travel, live, work, meet and enjoy people from all over the planet. Here at the dawn of globalization, it is important to make sure that all the inequalities Western Civilization has suffered are not transferred into the global arena. These problems historically are Entitlement, Civil and Equal Rights, Fair and Equal Governance, Gender Discrimination, Stewardship of the Lands and Care for Balance of Nature, to name a few.  Most of these problems have not been solved and risk going global if we fail to first acknowledge them and then do nothing about it.

Each of these problems transcend the others. Entitlement, specifically inherited wealth is intertwined with materialism and greed therefore compassion, benevolence and sharing can't be expected, thus the need of governance that is not purchased and is provided through equal governance must exist so that disparity of wages does not become the new global crisis.

The Constitution of the United States is not an "End-ALL, Be-ALL" document to last all time and eternity.  It was written by those tolerant or participating as Lords with Slaves before Knowledge, communications and computer technology existed.  There has to be refinement of government theory to keep up with the times.
America is imbalanced and the recent decade of political upheavals is reflective of the concern everyone is aware of from every level of citizenship.

The key to overcoming the imbalance is to control out-of-control disparity of wage and income without declaring it "Un-American". The idea that capitalism should not be checked and balanced is ludicrous, as the the ORIGINAL INTENTION of the Nation is Of, By and For "The People", including The Working Class who have been abandoned by Government and Corporations.

The system in place now guarantees HIGH WAGES to INEXPERIENCED but well trained and educated adolescents primarily of "Entitled" heritage who monopolized the system and purchased political power for their own gain. OPPORTUNITY for Children of the WORKING CLASS decimated, as the currency of the past few generations was a mix of "Who you Knew" not just "What you Knew" and how willing you were to be complacent in the whole inequity. Intelligent, humble, good men and women with decades of experience are being used and cast off with social benefits disintegrating and the so called experts, inexperienced, without insight, not yet wise or capable of comprehending the enormous contributions of other generations are holding power and the concern is great.

The NUMBER ONE FIX to bring to greatest sway back to balance for the greatest number of people and stop the risk of GLOBAL POVERTY is to force businesses from expanding until the rise of FAIR, QUALITY OF LIFE, GOOD LIVING WAGES are brought into balance for everyone, not just the careers demanding the highest wages due to monopolization of access of University Education to obtain them. The whole system is askew but it can be corrected.

It is time that Clerks, Cashiers, Administrative Professionals, Technicians; to name a few of the underpaid masses whose work is absolutely essential, who's lack of demand and abundance of jobs therefore have been taken advantage of by corporations who have been allowed to pay POVERTY WAGES with NO BENEFITS, endorsed through silence by a blind eyed PURCHASED GOVERNMENT.

The Working Class MUST WAKE UP and DEMAND a better system of government that takes into account the changes that came as lifestyle changed in American and is changing around the globe.  Truly, the whole situation is SHAMEFUL and this is not the AMERICA the Founding Fathers envisioned. This can not be the model the rest of the world employs.

Fair Representation may have to be ONE VOTE per CITIZEN, abandoning the concept of REPRESENTATIVES, if the opportunities for fair representation does not exist. If Social Security Cards became secure, like banking cards, with a online means for each person to validate their vote, the future of fair governance could begin.

Cleanliness, organization, action, focus, relaxation, partnership, excellence... These are some of the concepts anyone in any walk of life can embrace and live.


The Perfection of Impefection

In the Knowledge of Truth, there are those around the world who deem those who do not truly understand God as somehow guilty, ungodly or somehow lesser.  When you truly understand then it is easy to see the danger in this thinking with the full understanding of how to not get caught in the drama of either.  Understand that it too is a part of each of us, from the concentration of work, joyful living, one-mindfulness, ignorance has it's place too and from this also comes storing of worldly knowledge, also a part of humanity.

So much suffering comes from judgment. It is easy to say; let things come as they may come and go as they may go, but free will involves us, life implores us, others intertwine us and choices are not always black or white. We love, we get involved, we communicate and correct wrong thinking to find solutions, to discover our mistakes, open and transparent so we may share and live together in peace and awe of all that is.

Much is the talk of the Circle of Life, yet within the circle is the transcendance of the action of thriving, freely moving and growing and synergizing. We are also this. We have the ability to interact in a way that is mutually beneficial. When we understand that the relationships we endeavor are a part of creation, that all that is, is a response of all that can be, then we learn that acceptance and integration of appreciation and truth in acceptance of disappointment is a reflection of free will, to react in a heart of great love and compassion, awe and inspiration, forgiveness and understanding that there should be no judgment, as despite all good behavior, no one can control all that happens.

What we need is greater understanding, openness, honesty and transparency, so that we may choose better and understand the burden of true democracy is educated involvement.  We must implement and build governance into a new model of service to country and humanity. When we choose leaders, we need to know that they know, that they have the capacity to understand and who speak truth and implore others, through example, to implement fairness and justice in practice.

Enjoying all the world offers is possible, if everyone else could enjoy it also.  Until then...


What the World Needs Now - Action and Organization for All.

These are the Service Organizations Needed Today for A Better World:
End Greed and Reverence of Opulence,
Secure Profit Sharing and Fair Living Wages
Embrace Multiculturalism, 
Teach Unity - Crime and War are Mostly A Result of Needs Not Met

Upon receiving a Christmas email from The White House today, I noticed a link to Serve.Gov that then linked to AllForGood.Org  One of the greatest complaints of my life has been the treatment of insignificance I have received due to my perspective of Holistic "so called "New Age" understanding of Life and a demand for Living Wages and Fair Wages for Mainstream jobs.  Such as that, the core of the work ethic of my life has been and is to Serve my Community, my Family and Friends and the World as a whole.

So I was excited to see this link as an invitation to "Serve" as it seems to me that those who are given this benevolent opportunity have primarily shunned me and my kind as the lunatic fringe.  Knowing that common sense is not common, that extraordinary sense develops great compassion, as few truly understand that which is so simple, yet elusive to the masses.

I clicked on the links and found that the images and choices were a rather military type reflection of service such as these listed categories: MLK Day, Education, Haiti, Hunger, Animals, Health, Seniors, Technology, Poverty...in that order.

To me the greatest way to change the world is to change the heart of people and to me, in American one of the greatest problems with the system is the lack of awareness of truth individually thus reflecting in the actions of the people who have risen to power and the base that put them there.

So I searched for an opportunity to help on topics such as: Greed, Multiculturalism, Unity, Living Wages and found no real opportunities to reach out and serve in my community or anywhere close which seems a reflection of the times, those who live lifestyles of opulence, excess, judgment regardless of race (because as a "White" Euro-American Woman I have known discrimination for both being "White" and being a woman) and the use of religion to set people apart as if they were somehow better because they read and study the lives of those who experience that experience of "God".

I too found a way to embrace the things that are a challenge to me; to enjoy the fine things of life while still living on a budget, to at least respect those who like expensive gifts more than caring for the needy, those who hate the rich without understanding hard work and rigid chains to the bonds of the beast and the spiritual teachers who fail to mention that enlightenment leads you back to life, the reflection of what you are living on different vibratory levels. We all find different things challenging. Embracing life and using discernment to be in the circle you belong in, without judgment or regret with the freedom to transcend all.

So this Holiday season, I think it is important to take the Holiday with you and to live it everyday.  Buy gifts year round, don't do Christmas Crazy, give within your means and cook like Martha Stewart...but help people around the world, especially in your own backyard, starting with your own neighborhood first, without snobbery and judgment.

It is time that those who have the power and can do so will do more to mobilize me and others like me who have no desire to wade in excess when so many have so little.

PLEASE, lets use communications to put people to work.  Let's job share if we have to.  Let's take less and share more when we can.  Let's lose the stigma of low wage thus low value. Let's teach the children better and make the world more.

What the World Needs Now is Action and Organization for All.


ABOUT - Creating a Free Press Site for your Area

Happy Holidays Members and Friends of The Free Press.us and ColvilleOnline.com !

As you know, Advertising is the core of every Political Election from local to Presidential and all the money goes through the hands of Media Moguls and Global Corporations.
Americans inadvertently support the beast that keeps them down.

In order to change this, a Truly Free Press Owned and Operated by "The People Equally" is the only solution to providing fair and equal points of views. This is no simple task but I think the answer is a linked network created by locals, linked Nationally and Globally, with a rotation of headlines and advertisements or no advertisements at all, is the solution. Profits then are reinvested and contributors get paid , rather than paying to contribute.

The point is, Together, we decide.
Build a Free Site, tag it, "The Free Press.us Member Site" or "TheFreePressGlobal Member Site", send notification to TheFreePress.us@hotmail.com to add your site and it will be linked in a global Free Press Site list of TheFreePressGlobal.com Free Press Websites we will promote together.

I have built a local Colville Area Website in my spare time (It definitely needs work) over the past years and thanks to Webs it has not cost me more than a couple bucks to do it.  Each and everyone of us can build a free website for their area and link together until there is a network of Free Presses around the globe, not owned by Corporate Media like Fox, CNN, ABC, MSNBC etc.....

I am asking you all for ideas, suggestions, posts, through our forums as we start to build a new website to link all the sites through. I bought a few dot com names like TheFreePressGlobal.com which I am going to use for now to drum up support and educate others on how to change politics back to "The People" through Transparency by Media which is the element of the Checks and Balances that got trampled in the USA.

The only way to change Politics and Politicians is to remove the finance of the Media that gets paid and stays in power no matter who wins elections.

On September 11, 2001 I was watching the news with my morning coffee. As the reports came in of the first plane flying into the World Trade Center I watched in surprise and disappointment. By the time I watched the second plane hit the building I knew that America would forever be changed.

The Original "Free Press" was located on 1 East Colorado, in Pasadena, California in the 1960's. My father purchased the building and I walked the remnants of it as a youth. My father passed away on September 22, 2001, eleven days after 911, heartbroken and saddened that the country he loved so very much had been attacked. My Father, George Gulyas was a Hungarian Immigrant who came to the US during the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 and I felt the pride he had when he became a US citizen and to this day I will never forget it.

America is the face of every race and every faith coming together in hope that one day we will see the unity of our existence. That when there is less we will all take less and when there is abundance we will all share in it. It is reaching for the highest ideal possible, no matter the obstacles and looking for hands to reach farther with, together, all over the world.

On the first Anniversary of 911 it was apparent to me that Americans did not understand what 911 was really about, when for so many of us, who spent a lifetime studying world religion and world politics clearly understood it was about the Israel/Palestinian Dispute.

By March of 2003, as former President Bush announced plans to invade Iraq, despite no support from the United Nations I was dismayed. As the Media sat silenced in reporting the truth of the matter, it was apparent that every person who could needed to use every avenue at their disposal stop our military from engaging in war over the resources of foreign nations, a military who has for too long been used to secure the assets of the wealthy rather than protect and serve the homeland. This is not the way of the majority of Americans. And it is time to bring our military home from throughout the world.

I purchased the dot com "The Free Press.US " on September 11, 2002 in hope of finding other Artists, Writers, Musicians, Teachers...and the like, who were willing to come together to and create a Truly Free Press, by creating one in every community, not purchased and paid for by advertisers with an agenda and capable of breaking a press financially if they did not like the reflection of its stories. Knowing that there must be a Free Press with reciprocal forums for an opportunity to educate Americans and clarify misunderstandings so there would be no reason for another 911.

There must be a free press of the people, by the people, for the people. It is my hope that every community start one, today.

I look forward to finding writers, artists and like-minded humanitarians to help one another in friendship, community and sharing of skills.

Remember the Unity that is the source of the teachings, this and every Holiday Season.

Best and Warmest Wishes this Winter,

Cynthia Rushton  CynthiaRushton@hotmail.com 

Nothing to Gain, Nothing to Lose,
Love You and Life.. Be Here Now.

For all of Us.


FREEDUMB - Journalists Must Do Better Than That

How Long Before Other Nations Start Sanctioning US? 
Stop the flow of billions of tax payer dollars across the globe in military spending.  

So yes WikiLeaks is technically NOT a Media Outlet and Assange is NOT a journalist, but maybe that's the lesson every Media Outlet and Journalist had best wake up and learn, while the former becomes the sacrificial lamb because Media and Journalists were NOT doing their Job. Has this not been the lesson of the whole debacle of the War in Iraq and Afghanistan? Who do we trust to give us the truth to make moral decisions and serve us, harmoniously with the entire world?

America spent decades criticizing Russia and other factions for the same type of behavior it now displays, disappearing dissidents and shooting the messengers. 

THE MESSAGE must be the focus of JOURNALISTS around the world, so clearly stated by journalist Jeremy Scahill in The Nation:
"The documents provide concrete evidence of widespread US killings of Afghan civilians and attempts to cover up killings, and they portray unaccountable Special Operations forces as roaming the country hunting people—literally. They describe incidents of mass outrage sparked by the killing of civilians and confirm that the United States is funding both sides of the war through bribes paid to the Taliban and other resistance forces."
From Clinton to Bush to Obama, a misguided understanding is the core problem in understanding how to serve good. POLITICIANS NEED TO REMEMBER WHAT COUNTRY and WHOSE PEOPLE they are supposed to serve.

The core of consciousness asks the question WHY. Why are extremists doing what they are doing, what is the relationship of the involvement, is the history of the fact slanted by the source and who is responsible for the cause of their action? The goal fair solutions, the truth, unbiased Media fiction, just the facts are not enough, Journalists must do better than that.

JOURNALISTS MUST NOT be fooled into losing sight of the history of America's involvement in the Middle East. Remember; Why did America back the Taliban? Ultimately, when Israel fired on America back in the Six Day War on the USS Liberty, Israel sealed it's fate, but American politicians continue to hush that up.  The focus is that we do not unequivocally support ISRAEL committing genocide against Arabs and we do not support Arabs who will not work diplomatically and peacefully.

Obama supported the close of one third of the military bases, in the Deficit Proposal, although it failed to pass. A STABLE AMERICAN PUBLIC, (working class) is the CORE example for a STABLE WORLD. People of all races, religions and creeds must work together peacefully and end the injustice that is the source of extremism. That is where we are at this time and the momentum must be quickened.

So much wrong is done in the name of "Good" that it is amazing that history is so often forgotten. The Violent, Bad Actors across the Global Spectrum need to be recognized before they have a chance to do great damage, the concern is what to do when those entrusted prove unworthy of trust, especially if they have the biggest gun?  We can not be the World's Military and politicians need to bring our Military HOME and stop the bleeding of our economy by putting a stop to the flow of billions of tax payer dollars across the globe in military spending.

How Long Before Other Nations Start Sanctioning US?


The Future Upon Us - Everyone Shares

It is important that history (and the younger generations taking the helm) remember all the writers, artists and even the dogmatics who could not see the consequences of their undivided allegiance even when the elders they revered were completely misguided in their understanding of accountability.  In common, the shared many things, no matter how heated the debates became, THEY ALL CARED. Many things are often lost in battle of words but all in all, the future is upon us with the explosion of E-Publishing.

Difficult as it was, it took a united desire to make life better for others, even when so many were primarily concerned with making life better for themselves. With all the problems in America, truly anyone willing to take what ever jobs available and speak up to those around them to make life better, have experienced even poverty at a level unprecedented.

I know the personal choices so many made to walk away from jobs, churches, family and not condone or participate in physical violence as others supported War, Torture, the Monopolies Corruption laced throughout the Financial Industry and the Professional Industries where Justice is set aside for Legal Systems.  In All history will view these times and bring better technologies and simplifications and continue to strive for greater good. Writers, Artists and other free thinkers were a casualty of this age and it dimmed it's head.

As E-Publishing moves into it's Dawn we should all be thankful to have lived long enough to see this age arrive. I wish many I knew could truly understand the greatest revelations of our day and that humanity around the world will understand.  As a woman, knowing what I know I am in awe that others still adhere to old age ways, keeping others down, especially women and I wish I could do more to help others everyday.

I used to imagine E-Readers in my mind, clearly seeing them and wondering when the technology would arrive that would put one in my hand.  Now that the information age is here, we must work together to make sure that which is worth hearing finds a way to rise and be heard.  We must work hard to help hard working people have access to that which has become available, making life better for everyone, not just the few who haven't shown much compassion or interest in helping even those who work so hard for them.


Access DENIED - WIKILEAKS Traffic Jammed Website - BY DESIGN?

PS; CNN attempting an interview with Julian Assange, where he walked out on the interviewer who claimed that "she had to ask the question", is yet another incident of support indicative of the obvious; that journalists are not free to work as they deem, in order to be on the payroll they must be willing to be controlled as a part of a media who support their superiors viewpoint, a controlled agenda.

WikiLeaks Warlogs Servers could not be accessed by many private individuals today, this private citizen included. Not that I think anything new or shocking or any more embarrassing than it already has been would be revealed, I don't think the Government or media should block citizens from accessing what is already on display around the world. The issue should be who and why it had to be leaked rather than provided and why those involved are not honest and transparent in the first place, rather than coddling their true opinion.

Truth is difficult to find and comes with consequences, but imagine the time savings that could ensue if truth was the norm for diplomacy around the world. I for one do not blame the Saudi Prince and wonder if the world is ready to say "Get with the Times" to the Entire Dogmatic World addicted to ritual and complicating the simplest of goals. Not reading "The Leaks", I feel assured that I am not missing much that I can not already conjecture.

That said, it is a good example of discretion to determine if the Block of access is Random, from Traffic Jammed or By Design.  Clearly the question comes to play as to what the MORAL responsibility is in acknowledging the information.  As a writer, degreed journalist, and humanitarian, making money by donations and subscriptions, and working a real job, I clearly find good and bad on both sides of the argument. LEAKS in General ARE IMPORTANT and MUST BE ALLOWED for a democratic society to evolve.

Clearly Media has failed to provide fair and equal facts, including Democracy Now and Amy Goodman who always slights past the fact that ISRAEL destabilized the Middle East by having a NUCLEAR ARSENAL, undisclosed, backed unequivocally by the Politicians put in place by the Corporate Power Structure of the USA, in whole who are akin to the Heads of Media.  I beg to question who is controlling who? I implore everyone, tell the truth and don't be unabashed about it.

It is becoming more and more clear that Israel controls America and not the other way around and it is time to end the undisclosed partnership that destabilizes the entire Mid-East. As an American, I find this unreported Arsenal disturbing and I would like to see Amy Goodman and Democracy Now be more akin to Journalist Jeremy Scahill (I recommend you read HIS ARTICLE for truth about "The Leaks") and toss the unabashed allegiance to the Old Way Mentality transparent of Politics of Israel.

To clarify further, I support Link TV and Democracy now as Amy, Carlos and the whole team are near and dear to my heart and I have spent many a morning tuned in, what I need to say is that I also take in mainstream media and learn from both but I want more from both and KNOW both are capable of honestly, transparency and taking the repercussions just as the rest of us. When truly understood, it's not that you can't straddle the fence, the truth is there is no fence.

Independent Writers can not afford to provide independent fact finding and research thus Free Media depends on INDIVIDUALS to get out information that has urgency if it is deemed to disclose fact that others in positions of power have held back for discriminatory reason.  Therefore great discretion should taken by individuals to ensure that DISCRETION become the responsibility of the END READER. There is no Editor, Fact Checker, Privacy Screen in place. EACH INDIVIDUAL READER MUST USE DISCRETION in this new age of information.

It is VERY CRITICAL that Independent Fact is provided in fair and equal access and websites pass on information that others don't necessarily want out there all the time, but are not necessarily noticed because there is not great interest in them. It is the only when the masses are directly affected by leaked information, that they go viral.

Opinion Editorials are difficult to write when the facts are trickled down only from Corporate Media distillers.
Unfortunately, opinion of what is news worthy and what is not, is discretionary and unbiased is in the eye of the beholder. US and THEM Politics is a Great Problem around the globe and Everyone MUST deeply consider Original Intention and Transparency. After all We truly are all One Tribe.

I remain, unedited and off the cuff... May these thoughts be challenged and willingly redefined, the consequences where they rest.

Deep in the Meditation of Peace of the ONE which we all are a part, We wash our hands of this.


The PR Star Machine - From Pop Stars to Presidents?

In the true fashion of the "Star Machine"  responsible for every sensation from the Beatles, to Britney Spears, from American Idol to Taylor Swift, forgone is earning notoriety and fame as "The Machine" has an agenda that few see the details of.
When you look at the history of Advertising and Public Relations, you see how the Publicity Machine began controlling elections from Sheriffs to Rock Starts since the advent of TV and commercial sponsors.  Once upon a time sponsors backed newspapers and events, lending their good community reputation to support others who supported benevolence to build better communities.  But soon things became more like mafia than main street and partnerships became monopoly's vying for viewers and competition narrowed control to the point we are at today, relationships are currency and there is a delusion of righteousness that the parties themselves are oblivious to.

With the "Fox" network claiming to be the "Alternative" network, you got to wonder who do these people think they are kidding?  Unfortunately, the last election declared the answer to that.  Otherwise, the goal is valid but the method to achieve it and the vehicle to attain it is absolutely titanic.

With the TLC Palin reality show, the Book and all the other recent displays, it is clear that the pop cultural "Star Machine" is being penetrated by politics, as evidenced with this Palin Experiment, packaged and purchased by Evangelical America, promoted by "Fox", the network that makes no apologies in putting the potential candidate on the Payroll.

It is TRANSPARENT to see how SPLITTING UP THE REPUBLICAN VOTE come 2012 will be so easy to accomplish.

As for Palin, an excellent spokesperson for Americans of European Decent who as I previously noted, should take offense for constantly being labeled as "WHITES", as if it were some Global Evil. Unfortunately she shows no affinity in being a part of "White America" who stood up for Civil and Equal Rights, and for Peace and the End to the war in Vietnam.  It is these same conservatives who labeled all who supported Civil and Equal Rights as Bleeding Heart Liberals and still does so today as if both were a villainous wrong. It is evident that Palin and so many of the younger generations who support her and the Tea Party don't understand or were around to remember why so many are confused as to which Party to Trust as "THE PARTY" for "ALL" THE PEOPLE.

As evidenced in this snippet from her book regarding Michelle Obama's comment that she clearly misconstrues as she flippantly displays a lack of compassion for the joy people of color felt to finally have representation at the highest level of American Government:

"Certainly his wife expressed this view when she said during the 2008 campaign 
that she had never felt proud of her country until her husband started winning elections. 
In retrospect, I guess this shouldn’t surprise us,
since both of them spent almost two decades in the pews of the Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s church 
listening to his rants against America and white people",

It is obvious that Palin enjoys being flippant and has little compassion for the suffering and sacrifice so many made to give others a chance to live in peace and prosperity. If this is THE moral representative of the Conservative Right, I rest my case.

The Public Relations Star Machine is sealing the deal and using Palin as a Pawn which can be foreseen as the precursor that will actually get Barack Obama re-elected. All I can say is, You Go Girl.

If you follow my Blog then you know that as amusing as I find Sara Palin and the whole Tea Party, and the transparent, overwhelmingly free media it has been given, you know that it concerns me that any person or group still believing that the teacher is more important than implementing the teaching, that the most joyous event ever will be the end of the world, and amongst other issues of misinterpretation, that there is such a thing as a Holy Soldier; continues to gain support and control of America.

Don't get me wrong, I take a holistic approach to all matters including politics as I don't believe a person's moral life should or can be separated from every other aspect of their life, no matter how fair or unbiased they claim to be.  So instead, it is important to delve deeply into persona and find people to lead politically who know the key to balance and thrive.

I hope that someone else who is brave will speak out and chance speaking the truth.


The politics of Religious Voting - The Lord Has Returned...So Now What?

Great Teachers have appeared 
throughout time and eternity and they all share one thing, 
they are all Human.

So let’s suppose we could  fast forward to a time of great revelation, when leaders of churches all across America and around the Globe have come to accept that reincarnation was the answer to a soul’s eternity, thus the only way the lord could return, was as another great teacher, trying once again to get human beings to love and care for one another. Again it could not be proven, so most would write it off as foolish or crazy, but those who experienced glimpses of this knowledge, would once again struggle to understand, and another religion would dawn. Is this not the cycle man has been in for thousands of years?

So here we are again, and one day, history will look back and see how foolish American society was and how incredibly dangerous it is to have allowed any one country to develop such a large military network and arsenal where such instability of helm existed.

Mid Easterners call Americans imbeciles because the majority, (especially those in financial and political control in America), have no true grasp of enlightened knowledge that Mid-Eastern religion accepts in whole. Right or Wrong, Good or Bad, the struggle between understandings is a conflict that should be moot.  The point being that communication, not violence must be the solution.

So Fast Forward to a different age of understanding where misinterpretation of the Christian Doctrine is widely accepted as the result of corruption from the start and a new understanding with a basis of humanism is the core of the teaching of churches who come to see and teach the sacred interconnectedness of all life, understanding that what happens is not some benevolent reward or punishment, but more of a result of random, but created outcomes, based in whole in harmony with scientific law and continuity of Nature.

Fast forward and take away the organization of separate, selfish, imbalance of finance and desire to impress  and you might find a way to use government for the better of society to guarantee food, clothes and shelter to all as a basic right, thus you will have less crime, poverty and violence eliminating the basis for war. If we stopped and asked WHY those who cry out are crying, we will solve the problem from developing in the first place.

Religion is the aftermath of true enlightenment.  It can never solve humanities problems.  Yet here we are in 2010 where membership in religious organizations is a precursor to power, wealth and political control of government.  This is, in itself, a sign that religion has once again gotten it all so wrong and the majority of Americans know it.

So do we mobilize and stop the Country from becoming a tool for the religious extremists in America?
We Speak OUT LOUD and we use words, not weapons and make our neighbors wake up and realize that what they want the most is right with them, and in their grasp, if they would be still and Know the truth.
In effect, We Love Them, Better…


The "Land Doesn't Meet Loan" problem - Banking and Finance Investments Needed in Rural America

OK, Short of a miracle of benevolence to balance out what Unchecked Capitalism has done to Society as a whole, investors would do well to look at Rural America, which is a vast portion of America, and create new products that serve to develop the immense amounts of raw real estate acreage that can be purchased across the nation.

Here on the North Columbia River just North of Spokane, WA there a glut of land, many with cabins and mobile homes, available in the real estate market, but with few financial loan packages or low price non-conforming loans to allow purchase of acreage with reasonable down payments for working class people who are taking low paying jobs rather than sit on welfare and unemployment. It would benefit everyone if banks and financial investors invested in them.

This" land doesn't meet loan" problem is a case in point across the country, but banks and financial institutions are not seeing the opportunity this market requires. If investors would take a look and invest in real workers, with real assets perhaps the mess could clean itself up expeditiously.

Investment is not a wholesome way to make a living and it is apparent that the fiscal disaster, trying to be the face of the future is a farce.  It amazes me what lifestyles people will pursue to avoid doing menial chores, but when you simplify the matter, wealthy investors are spoiled arrogant souls that are transparently in need of digging in the mud. It would certainly do them good to walk the walk and stop talking the talk until they change who and what they support.

So simply said, investing a rural America is good for all of America.


The New Work Week - 1/3 Straight Job, 1/3 Entreprenuer, 1/3 Personal Time

Conservative, Liberal, Labor, Republican, Democrat, Eastern, Western...The labels are meaningless, the generalizations pointless as the lines are completely blurred. This is a New Age, where the means to engage in a balanced and good life requires cooperation from the masses.  The computer age has changed everything, thus the benefit of this New Dawn can not pool into few hands or it is criminal. Currency must flow and stay flowing and work must be a shared, cooperative between mainstream job hours and personal and creative time. One Third of the Work Cycle dedicated to Main Stream Job Contribution, One Third Free to Pursue Freely in a Creative Endeavor of ones choosing, One dedicated to personal care and family.

Lifestyle is the Key to understanding where and how to fill the gaps and clamp the surplus and bring greater prosperity and quality of life throughout the world.  It can be done and it must start with each person, private business and overseen by government, because service to community is healthy and it is an innately embedded desire that we all share in abundance for true peace to exist.  It is never enough that one has plenty when others have little, it goes against instinct and it is this shared experience that is true wealth.

Each and every one of us must display better behavior for a better world. It has to start with each and every one of us and we must learn to bring our economy and our lives into balance without sacrificing the intricacies and delicacies that make this age so fun and attractive.  CREATIVITY is Key.

Imagine a world where we share the work necessary to have abundance and balance for a sustainable world by giving each other the gift of more time to pursue an entrepreneurial endeavor, whether it's a farm or its art, if its music or if its parenting.  If we think right, we can act right.

From Farm Subsidies to Food Stamps, we have seen that no man is an island and a community requires care and concern for everyone with a greater understanding that sometimes when people don't contribute there is a serious mental, physical, (or even perhaps spiritual), impediment that requires a solution that includes assistance. And this, a balanced Society must provide, but it must recognize and implement a solution that gives reward for creativity and positivity.

The Solution, more free time, greater sharing of wages and jobs, and a standard of living that gives everyone the opportunity to mobilize to save and invest, create and dream, sing and dance, volunteer and serve...A Third Period of Time that allows people a choice to better their lives or enjoy what they have.

As the computer age arrived the workplace became a competitive battle for the fittest.  Those who excelled at multitasking were given more and more duties. From retail clerks to kitchen cooks, Executives to Log Haulers, all were forced to take on other duties from janitorial to technical as job after job was streamlined and smashed.  The Result was government, government and more government and taxes making the whole circle self defeating.

So the imbalance is quite simple to see and the solution quite simple to deploy, but those who have must give up some so that those who have gone without may have the opportunity to catch up so the playing field can be replanted with the opportunity to be re-landscaped into what this third period of creativity can provide.

Now, lets see what groups get on board to do the right thing BY CHOICE.
If the right thing was always done by choice 
we wouldn't need government to impose upon people 
but to be an avenue of implementation.


Deficit Panel - Who Do You Trust? Really?

Before you consider what is happening in Politics, 
and the proposals of the Deficit Panel, 
Just Breathe....

So when this Thanksgiving arrives, look at the circle you are surrounded in from your job to your neighbors to the family you dine with at holidays and at home.  Look in the eyes of the people you know and don't say a word, take in who they really are.  Imagine them without all their stuff, their clothes, their cars, all dressed the same, sitting on a beach, fending from scratch.  Who are they, who are you and how does it feel?

The first things you may hear about the proposed changes the Bi-Partisan Deficit Panel has made may be the proposal to lower Social Security cost of living increases or the raising of the retirement age to 69. Appalling if you haven't much else after working your whole life, scratching by while others live in what seems to be opulence and decadence. Angering and embarrassing, aren't they? But hold on,that is not the whole truth, and the coverage by the mainstream media to inflame the working class is in itself transparent.

If Social Security is a trigger point for you, you are not alone.  In fact, according the the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, the median salary for all Americans is actually about $2,500 a month in 2009, so over the past 50 years, the majority of Americans could not save for retirement if they wanted to.  Add competition and the GREED of housing investors and the politicians who allowed the wholesale packaging of home loans as a commodity, and you can see why the majority of the working class through the past generations had no chance to beat the system.

So before you react to the bipartisan deficit commission who announced Wednesday a proposal that includes reducing the annual cost-of-living increases for Social Security, gradually raising the retirement age to 69 and taking aim at popular tax breaks such as the mortgage interest deduction, DOWNLOAD THE ACTUAL PROPOSAL, and take a look for yourself. There are some awesome strategies in the plan that will be better than what is happening now.

Then imagine yourself back on the beach. Do you trust in those who didn't NEED to go to school to educate themselves, (through they may have, they would educate themselves no matter what).  Do you trust those who get the fish and then share it, so filled with the joy of sharing, they didn't need much energy from the fish. Do you trust the ones who took the fish and added roots and seeds and made a stew? 

Face it, you trust in those who can create, who motivate those who have lost their will, who share and give and find joy throughout it all. Are you the one who or who trusted the ones, who took charge and took the fish from the guy, who  thought because he caught it, he and only he could eat it?

Now Breathe... and decide, 
which one you want to be.


2010 -The Year of THUD! The Aftermath of the Election - Same as it Ever Was

It saddens me to see people who have so much who still want more. 
So I am waiting to see CHRISTIANS GROW UP.  Point Blank.

Welcome to the Aftermath of the November 2010 elections where despite the shift back to Republican Control of The House, the shift is not as drastic as it may seem.  The shift we see is age 40 and under Peer Voting, where throughout their lives they have had one influence as most of their teachers, preachers and social smattering of this group have been the evangelical club, where attendance is not mandatory, study is not required, forgiveness is available for the asking.

Good paying jobs in America in the past three decades became a competition and the winners were a club of like-minded, clean-cut, workaholics, who all could relate to each other. The Tea Party is an inkling of a younger more tolerant version of the "The Club" but it still is "The Club" and Obama was a part of "The Club" but not "The Party".

So the agenda is still the same, no one discussing the indiscriminate bombing of people without giving them a day in court or charging them with any crimes. No one talking about the bleeding of currency throughout the Globe to over 500 military bases around the world, the control of business to Corporations who have streamlined jobs and made slaves of the working class. No talk of how this change will come about, just that they will be the ones to be paid to bring it.

 What I see is the face of the Peace filled, of the enlightened, awake in a land cast in a dream state looking for heaven.  I see them humble, without homes of their own, or jobs that pay or a way use their incredible talents, being used by dispassionate beings who would rather crack jokes about human suffering than change the world, heal the fights, feed the hungry and share peace from the knowledge so available for the asking.

It saddens me to see people who have so much who still want more. So I am waiting to see CHRISTIANS GROW UP.  Point Blank.

If we don't demand more, we won't get it.  
I am demanding more!


The Natural American Party - A New Political Party that Puts USA First

Cutting back is cutting our throats, with a massive humanity 
we need massive currency movement, 
everyone has to participate, 
not just those hoarding currency, damming the flow. 
I am asking the CEO's of every major broadcasting company 
and media outlet to grow, think differently and let this view be known.

After watching Fareed Zakaria GPS - Restoring the American Dream, Zakaria interviews the CEO of Coca Cola and Alcoa, amongst others and comes up with the idea that America needs a Federal Value Added Tax, a federal tax of an additional 7% on all purchases.

Talk about the absolute wrong thing to do, our leaders are so incapable of knowing what to do with the coffers they collect now, unable to balance the budget they already have, spreading currency about the globe, nesting quantity over quality, enforced by a military increasingly trending zero accountability and private control.

There needs to be New Political Party, but unlike the Gun Toting, simplistic and uneducated "Tea Party", perhaps a "Natural American Party", a party that puts the priority of building back a strong America by keeping American Dollars and American Military in America to build back the economy of America first, before it can go play "Big Brother" around the Globe. And every Country around the world needs to do the same thing and meet on equal footing.

We need "A Natural American Party" that recognizes that we are all in it together, that is funded by a CHANGED political system and I am asking those in power and privilege to recognize that true prosperity requires a well cared-for society, even if that means job sharing and more free time for art, music, hobbies, socialization, travel... Cutting back is cutting our throats because with a massive humanity we need massive currency movement, everyone has to participate not just those hoarding all the currency damming the flow.  I am asking the CEO's of every major broadcasting company and media outlet to grow, think differently and let this view be known!

If you read my blog, you might know that I believe the only thing that will change the world for the better is if each and every one of us changes our selves and our own backyard by living simply,supporting local farmers and ranchers, by growing a garden, cooking what's available, buying locally; independent when possible, making and creating again and stop investing and supporting people who live lifestyles you can't see therefore can't make accountable.

Build back manufacturing, stop buying  everything from Levi's to toothbrushes unless they are made in America and encourage a better quality of life for everyone, everywhere, which will circulate currency without greater consumption of commodities.

Wake up people and KNOW that balance is the answer, always was and always is.  Be still and Know.

Enjoy Life, Ideas are free for the taking.
