Can you choose?

Is a bigot or misogynist that voices his poisonous opinion (public affect aside) any more dangerous than the one that only acts on it while sporting a smile?
is it like this: “better the Devil you do than the Devil you don’t”
What do you think?
Unless what someone says is a provable fact it is just an opinion worth no more than anyone else’s.

Stop the madness

          During this election year I have seen folks almost come to blows over political views and choices. I am constantly hearing Republicans did this,Democrats did that etc etc.  It is a horrible reflection of our knee jerk, reactive society. There isn’t anyway the elected president will be able to turn the country into anything but what it is. Change takes time and a multitude of painful lessons. It is never instant comfortable change. Nirvana isn’t coming anytime soon. it certainly won’t be brought into being by a particular president or party. 
          There has to be a societal change that moves us out of the apathetic mentality to a hands on approach to government. A government monitored strictly by a civilian watch dog group with a means to report to the people with out the constraints of the need for ratings and investors.  Our system now is not broken it was set up to put the power into the hands of a few. It gotta change before anything else does.    
         A persons choice for the presidency doesn’t necessarily mean the person agrees with all of the candidates views. I have been a Bernie fan for years cause of his obvious honesty and integrity . I don’t agree with he stance on abortion ( allowing it past the first trimester) guns ( I don’t believe in Banning anything just strict licencing standards)
I don’t agree with his immigration stance almost open borders.( I believe their should be easy but totally vetted visas )
        To me,  beyond the first black president or the first woman president the most novel of all presidents (Or congress person) would be a man or woman of honor and integrity.
I know its a long shot but it is a dream of a father.

Gun Control

I am not a gun owner. Although I will have to become one in the near future due to a coyote problem at my farm in east Texas. I am not afraid of coyotes, so it isn’t an act of fear. But my animals will I’m sure be glad I had one when one of the coyotes are chasing them down. Now of course I don’t need an AR-15 to kill a coyote but I may need onto kill a pack of them.

I know when I buy that gun I will be in no danger of shooting myself or any unintended target. How do I know? Because I know what the weapon is capable of. I know that because I have seen the damage this weapon can do.  I know it, respect it and act accordingly.

I have a grandson and nieces and nephews under the age of responsibility so I would of course have a place to store the gun to keep them out of harm’s way. This again is the way to keep that type of tragedy from happening, so there is no need for fear. It is because of this awareness that no one will be hurt or killed because of a gun I bought regardless of model or capability.

I don’t believe in limiting the guns as much as I believe in licensing owners to be able to keep them. If someone wants to own a low caliber weapon for whatever reason it makes sense to make sure they can handle not only the responsibility, but also that they are proficient in its use and risks.

I think maybe there should be levels of licenses. The lowest level of gun license should cover minimal calibers and the top license only for the highly dangerous one. There should be liability insurance purchased on all levels and qualification covering marksmanship and weapon knowledge and storage.

It makes sense to register the guns to make it possible to trace a gun used in a crime. The owner of the gun should be held responsible for its use. If it is used in a crime and hasn’t been reported it stolen, they should be charged accordingly.

With all power comes responsibility in all areas from guns and weapons to political officials. Too much uncheck power is a danger to all. Disarming people when there is a very real threat of harm be it animal or human.

We are in a dangerous time and the need to be aware and ready is upon us. There is nowhere in our society that anyone is absolutely safe. It makes no sense to lay your safety solely in the hands of strangers’. The rampant corruption in our governments make it a possibility (However slim) a Nazi style takeover is possible. Being aware and ready is the best policy.

Hopefully someday we will have a society that everyone respects each other and believes in fair play and integrity.

But we aren’t there yet.

                                      Never Give Up!

In the sixties the much population raged against the machine that was our corrupt government. These soldiers of peace fought hard for peace and the end of the Viet Nam war . When that goal was realized and the war was ended, many  became appeased and slipped into social unconsciousness and became part of the “Machine”.

That can’t happen now.

Bernie helped start a movement that has the potential to make an amazing world for our kids and grand-kids.

It has to continue regardless if Bernie is elected or not.

Whether you are Republican, Democrat or Independent, changes must be made.
From abolishing corrupt two party system and electoral college to ending big businesses ability to buy elections and control of government by keeping politicians on their payroll.
We have to bring the control back to the people.

Stay centered with spirit body mind and spirit.
Have a clean spiritual center but hands that are ready to get dirty

The act of changing the world for future generations,
Is a profound SPIRITUAL ACT. and the responsibility of us all.

Who are you protesting?

I don’t know about anyone else but I am getting sick of this political circus,lying ,spinning, name calling ugh what a low brow endeavor.

I agree everyone should be informed and make their own choice of candidate for president (and congress)
But even tho it has been mentioned clearly as if it was fair and just, the party system is a lot of the problem. with very few making a stand against it.
Both parties are private organizations that can change rules at will. This allows them to ultimately pick who they want to run in the general election. what happen to “one man one vote?”though the vote of the American people can make it harder, the parties still have power to pick the candidate they want regardless.
If you feel you should protest and raise hell. The candidates aren’t the ones to protest, it is the parties themselves that need to be abolished.WE have the technology to count votes fairly with out delegates and that’s what we should be pushing for.
protesting candidates just makes fools out of everyone involved.

CHANGES

We are at a time of great change. I see it not only in the world,I also see it taking a great toll on my clients, family and friends. I have always said that the Universe gives you clues. It’s like it starts by whispering in your ear. Then it taps you on the shoulder and gives you outward sign.

Than if you still don’t listen it vigorously and sometimes painfully forces the issue.

But what is it?  is it an unseen force? Is it an omnipotent god? Or is the god force that we are all connected to? Could it be like some say, we have a contract with someone or something to do certain things? Maybe we do. Or maybe the contract is with our essence, or collective, maneuvering, testing and strengthening our understanding and command over our innate power. As we learn to command that power we in turn strengthen and raise the consciousness of the universe. Much like all the cells in your body that go through growth processes to strengthen and renew the body as a whole.

As we look at the political scene from an observer’s point of view we can see a pattern that is mirroring the scale of consciousness in our country and the world.

In the beginning the mankind was absolutely built on a “might makes right” type of system, like any animal species that has ever lived. As time went on the leader attained his position by might and manipulation and held it for generations by convincing the masses that these families were somehow more important and evolved. Unfortunately and to the detriment of mankind that thinking is still prevalent today.

Though much of the world the title of king or queen has been replaced with other names but the ultimate effect and behavior is the same. In the United States instead of a king, we have a president the name evoking a more modern and more businesslike sound and effect. We still however have the same situation for the most part. The president is treated as if he is a king while his wife are called the first lady and his family is the first family. The names were changed but the system is still in place. We have elections to “hire” representatives then we proceed to treat them as if they are better than the average man or woman in the country. In truth they are employees of the population and should be seen that way with the same expectations of any employee with the same checks and balances to keep them honest. There is a quote by someone I am not sure who, said “power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely” this was and is a true statement and needs to be addressed in all situations that effect the public.

It is because of this mindset we have a cast system that says some folks are above the law and some aren’t. A person with little assets are more apt to be arrested and incarcerated that someone of means especially if it is a person of color. There are people and businesses that bilk the population out of money and many time cause great harm but never get prosecuted. While the average person will be incarcerated for the smallest thing. It is in this way that our judicial system has become corrupt and untrustworthy. A police officer can maim and sometimes murder a suspect during an arrest for a traffic ticket and never be prosecuted as long as the government on that city or state can cover it up.

As we make changes in our society, balancing the scales of justice and power. Working to keep things as close to fair as possible the consciousness of the population in the country and the world raises and things become more manageable and more progressive for everyone.

But it isn’t something that can happen easily or quietly. Those in power and their benefactors will of course rail against the enlightened ones scoffing and defaming their hopes and ideas. The idea of everyone sharing equally the fruits of our society brings great rage. They fear the loss of their assets and station as prosperous and elite. They are so convincing, they actually have the people suffering in this greed based system fighting to keep their oppressors in control. Then, we have the people who base their beliefs and political leanings on mutual support among all of humanity. As they grow in numbers they inevitably overwhelm the opposition until they finally see the benefits of this way or thinking. When will this happen you ask? If you have noticed the rise in the public outcry for animal rights, rights for women and all sexual lifestyles. You can easily see it is happening now.

As we watch the political races between the authoritarians, ultra-conservative and the ultra-liberal it is easy to see the battle that I spoke of.  We see corruption in politics and media as the establishment does all it can to squelch the uprising. We see their underhanded methods being uncovered at every turn. This is in a sense the battle between good and evil we all have been told about. How will it end?

We shall soon see.
