I am in the age bracket with enough underlying health issues that if I contacted a serious respiratory infection I would probably kick the ol’ bucket. I wear my mask when I go out somewhere among people. I wipe down my steering wheel, my door handle and my groceries or any other products I get off the shelves. I still have plenty of work to do and keep busy all the time.
When this happy time first started I immediately began to research. No, I did not sit and gape at CNN or MSNBC or Fox News 24/7. In fact, I did not watch a single news show. (I haven’t since 2012) What I soon found out was that the information on where the virus originated was a fraud. They did not sell bats at the fish market in Wuhan. Fact.
Then as the wise and well connected media professional that I am, I soon discovered the massive deception being disseminated by the ‘main street media’. No surprise there. Further investigation revealed the same old profit thieving criminals ready to pounce on people when they were down. Fuck you, Bill Gates. Always at the ready to stick a syringe up anybodies ass.
Did I mention the American Medical Association, most Pharmaceutical Companies, Health Care vendors and many Doctors and researchers are not healers? They are profit motivated entities. Nothing wrong with profit motivation. That is unless you mask it behind a healing concern for humanity. Might as well hire a Shaman or witch doctor instead.
So I understand how many are scared. Dead people is real. I also discovered medical professionals fudging cause of death to boost Covid death records and to increase Federal monies from their ‘reported’ statistics. So whether you are hunkered down in a ghetto shack or a concrete bunker on a Caribe island with pineapples, palm fronds and your pussy cat, I understand.
Many of my friends also fear Global Warming, yet they are clueless when it comes to comet and asteroid visitations of the past. They ignore pollution to cast it under an umbrella called global warming to prop up the rich getting richer under a farce they call carbon credits. See the parallels yet?
Few are willing to contemplate the thought this may well be an engineered crisis to serve several demented purposes by a host of truly sinister evil people that concern themselves not, as my friend so appropriately coined it, ‘collateral damage’. The fact remains, aside from the number of deaths large or small, the damage the social distancing and shutdown of working peoples livelihoods, may well be even more detrimental to our society as a whole.
It seems what people fear the most are people that ARE sick going out in public and spreading it to others. An understandable concern. Understand the reason so many contracted the virus in New York and New Jersey was for one simple fact. Their lives are centered around the subway and those that travel on the subways. So what we should really be doing is gathering much more accurate information and disseminating it publicly —- accurately.
People are not getting that. So they are pissed they are being lied to. They are pissed our Congress is sitting on their asses in their cushy mansions eating gourmet ice cream and our intelligencia are sitting in their ivory towers buying stock in the ‘vaccine cure’. Personally, I enjoy seeing a lot less dumbasses on the road. I enjoy the cleaner air. And knowing some people that should be quarantined, are.
One fact remains. Our lives will never be the same. In my opinion, this was a test run for a bio attack. In fact, I will venture one step further and say this was an INTENTIONAL bio attack. So now we have to adjust our life styles to earn and feed ourselves by expanding our horizons. I also feel it’s about time we focused on more actual creative invention, quality production and true artistic relevance.
Too long we have been manufacturing too many bullshit fall apart products. We have gotten lazy at building better mouse traps or solving simple things to make our products and everyones lives better. We have turned art into an elitist self gratification instead of a universal message as it should be.
So there is no damn reason you should be bored or can’t figure out how to make an extra nickel or two. Go back to the basics. You are connected instantaneously to the entire world. To every customer you could ever possibly need. Live your life! Do it.
Fear not death. Fear living life as if you were dead.

I have spent a considerable amount of time in the past months studying the Biblical texts that were not included in the Bible. The easiest way to look at the spiritual importance of God and Christ is in terms of the First Covenant and the Second Covenant. The First Covenant was the revelation of the Ten Commandments. The Ten Commandments were restrictive guidelines to live by.
The Second Covenant was the Coming of Christ. Whether you see Jesus Christ as a physical presence that lived on the Earth 2000 years ago, or a symbolic representation of a prophet. It is generally understood his message was ‘love’. So the Second Covenant was the message of love. His message of love was revolutionary because at the time of the Romans, and even before . . . daily life was kill or be killed.
The First Covenant gave humanity restrictive guidelines to live by. These values were not much different then the Native American virtues. These values are thousands of years old and do not change ever! The Second Covenant was NOT restrictive. It was the message of love. It isn’t that the Second Covenant supersedes the First Covenant. It is not a replacement. It is a message clarifying the Word of God. Everything in the Ten Commandments are representative of love. The message of Christ was LOVE. The Word of God is LOVE.
All of the major religions, Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, have been fostering a lie for thousands of years now. Christ taught by example. His followers included women such as Mary Magdalene. My friends that know me have heard me relay this message before. After Christ died, Mary Magdalene told the other Apostles that she was given a teaching that Christ did not share with the other Apostles. The other Apostles did not believe her and would not hear her. There is an important teaching there, too.
One of the Apostles convinced the others to hear her out. She then shared the teaching with the other Apostles. Christ’s message was ‘to teach others how to teach enlightenment’. Read that again. It was not how to teach enlightenment. It was teaching others ‘how’ to teach enlightenment. This was the first most important revelation in my life just ten or so years ago, after all of my years of Catholic upbringing and studying philosophies and religions.
The important significance of the two Covenants of God was my own personal most important second revelation just a few months ago. The life of Christ was a message of inclusion. Christ was inclusive of women as equal in the ministry of his teachings and of the Word of God. This has not been the general practice of Judaism since inception. This was not the practice of Christianity after the Council of Nicaea. In fact it was the opposite. They eradicated any symbolism or text where women where shown to be equal in the ministry of God and Christ.
Islam has always included these restrictions for women. There is only one woman mentioned by name in the Koran. She is Mary, mother of Jesus. Two entire chapters of the Koran are named after her and speak of her. It is important to understand at this point that the Koran is much like the New and Old Testament Bibles. In fact, parts of the Koran are based on the Judaic and the Christian Bible. While all three have gems of truth, knowledge and teachings, they were all written by men. And as such, many of the edicts, fatwa’s, doctrines and traditions were written by men or religious groups or churches with the specific goal of controlling others or the behavior of others.
Which brings me back to the topic of forgiveness and repentance. The Catholic Church early on, and hence, Christianity, focused on Christ’s death on the cross as a form of repentance and forgiveness for original sin. These Christian concepts, along with the idea of resurrection, are all concepts of the early Church, written to gain favors for the early Popes and Bishops. And to reign strict control over followers of Christianity. But let me be clear here. This was not the belief of the earliest Christians. Which were later considered heretics by the Church.
Which leads me to my final point. Christianity as dictated by the Churches, focuses on the dogma surrounding the death of Christ, forgiveness for original sin through the knowledge and belief in Christ, Resurrection, and Ascension into heaven. Many religions believe in a second coming, or the future arrival of a great prophet. My personal belief is Christ never died on the cross. I believe in the Living Christ. Here on Earth right now through others and through love.
Unlike the Christian Doctrine, I do not believe you have to ‘know and believe’ in Christ to attain a paradise in heaven. Good people that know and share love, in even the most remote areas of the world that have never heard of Christ, are just as welcome in the paradise of life after death. In fact, Christ’s own beliefs are in actuality more akin to the Buddhist and Eastern concepts of atonement of the soul and reincarnation.
So the answer is LOVE. It will never give you a strict code of regulation on what you should or should not forgive. It is the flexibility of the Second Covenant that gives you the decisive conscience to make decisions based on the First and Second Covenant. The Word of God as revealed by the Ten Commandments, and love, as taught by Christ in the Second Covenant.

God said love
then he said
do it again.
Man said when?
I did it again.
Man said where?
God said where not.
Man said why?
God said look at the sky
look at the Earth.
all you see around is birth.
Look in between,
all you are is why.
Man said when?
again and again.
Man said where?
God said in the desert there,
Man said who?
everything inside you.
Man said how?
everything around you.
everyone around you.
God said love.
You have my Word.
It is easier to understand if you refer to it as the First Covemant and the Second Covenant. The books of the Old Testament were the First Covenant. The Covenant of Moses, Abraham, God, and His people with the promise of the Arc and the guidance of the Ten Commandments.
The Second Covenant was the coming of Christ. The New Testament.
And the Old Testament is not complete. There are still stories and writings buried somewhere in the Earth. It is a Living Bible. As is the New Testament. The New Testament is a simple message. The message of love. At a time when all was Barbarians and Romans killing each other.
So the Second Covenant was a message of love. Whereas the First Covenant (the Ten Commandments) were strict guidelines of behaviour, the Second Covenant was not so much strict guidelines, as it was a much broader guidance to live by.
Reading more of the texts excluded at The Council of Nicaea, we find the true secondary message of the Second Covenant. This was a most recent Epiphany for me (the second major Epiphany in a decade or so). This is also where all three churches have been lying to everyone for thousands of years now. Including Islam, which although a much more recent belief system, is based on both the Old and New Testament.
Women were an essential force in the Ministry of Christ. The Church Council buried this fact in their male dominated Saviour concept. Women were relegated to second string. As they had been in much of Talmudic and Judaic Law. And certainly are in Islamic practice. As well as in Hindi beliefs
The male/female identity of God is accepted in Hindi, but not so much in others. Mary Magdalene was an Apostle of the Teachings of Christ. The Teaching she received from Christ was not shared with the other Apostles. See this allegorically if you must.
After Christ died, her mission was to reveal the Teaching to the Apostles. None of the Apostles believed Christ had revealed a distinct message to her which they themselves did not receive. One of the Apostles spoke up for her and asked the others to hear her out. There is an important Teaching in this also.
The most important Teaching of course was love. But the New Testament (as it is now) and the Church, focus on the redemption of original sin and the miracle of the Resurrection after death. Hence, Christ as the Saviour of our souls and the promise of eternal life.
On these two points they seemed to have confuscated the message. Christ’s message of love IS the redemption. Live by the message of love and you have fulfilled the Second Covenant (the New Testament). The Old Testament was still important, but the message of the New Covenant had precedence because it was all the more inclusive.
The Council of Nicaea put a chokehold on Christianity that is still held taut by most Christian sects. Confession, Resurrection after death, eternal life through redemption . . . all are based on Church Doctrine, not so much on the Spiritual Teachings of love.
Redemption and Resurrection are actually Buddhist and Hindi Teachings, as well as present in other ancient belief systems. Reincarnation.
The message Mary Magdalene was given by Christ to share with the apostles after his death was much less complex. In so many ways just as important as the message of love. In fact, they are inexorably entwined.
It had little to do with Confession, redemption or Resurrection. All are submissive Church Doctrines.
Her message was to learn to teach others how to teach enlightenment.
Know thyself. Life is a moving dance connected by a thread to every musical note ever created. On every island are hidden treasures. And for every hidden treasure found musical notes will inspire you to dance. So dance often.
‘on the streets of Rome the roads are paved with desire’
In a small cafe in Rome
sit I in my latte espresso,
The streets are hills
where all roads lead.
A gas pump
pumps the smell of petrol
young girls in their skin tights
old men dream, cry
reshape a future
no longer theirs.
In business they give nothing away
the begging is stealing
and the prize vanishes
once your hungry fingers
a sparkling light invisible.
Where do the signals
of the hustling bustling strada
direct the lost and wandering
Without stars or visions
Without the future of an anchored past?
Without a cigarette to hold
between two fingers.
Without smoke to hide
Buzzing boys on scooters
and girls on motorcycles
swarming worker bees
pace the afternoon air
directing the incessant
active backdrop stage of noise
for ice cream eating aging beauties
tongue licking spinning ice cream cones
spinning vanilla upper lip memories
of once best nights satisfied
yet even now
Where did your gas pump stop spinning?
When did it stop pumping
fairy tale novels romance?
Holy sister keeps the steeple bells ringing
where all else pulses silent
hushed by the smiles of bright blue skies
turned dark and cloudy black.
Where did your pump stop pumping?
When did your wars become death star battles?
Why has the diamond sky never lit your way?
The graffiti walls do not conceal any answers.
The petrol smell pump
keeps every designer baby carriage rolling.
The pulsating sirens gift only more questions.
What does the business meeting want?
What does the endless night desire?
What does the greed of possession refuse to give?
Where do you buy your next human touch?
From pigeons lonely for the next crumb.

They run like colts
in river beds of colored wines
flicking whatever berries
at each other
They both understand the language
wondering with each other.
when they hurt each other.
Suffering for each others pain
when they dance
in each others rain.
BLM (Black Lives Matter) is a case study in irony. While they promote their cause that black lives matter, they also seem to endorse the fact that white lives do not. A hateful and certainly racist opinion, no doubt.
I cannot (and do not) believe that the majority of intelligent black Americans believe in this violent hatred. I give them much more credit than all of the current stupidity and idiocy. I do recognize the fact that there is a significant minority of vengeful black racists that insist on violent civil disobedience and on fueling the fires of hatred. In effect, promoting killing and death.
And I do very much feel that Barack Obama has further fueled the hatred instead of endorsing unity and peace, as many truly believed he would. Despite what any of my friends may think or feel (or anyone else) – – – he is a failure. He had the opportunity to unite and heal. Instead he chose to further promote exclusivity, elitism, segregating protectionist legislation, divisiveness and hatred. It is a direct reflection of his lack of character and continued incompetence.
The reality for all of us is that BLM and any other groups promoting such hatred are no different than the Ku Klux Klan, or foreign terrorist organizations. War is easy to incite. Just about anyone can do it. Peace, on the other hand, is a cause that has to be worked on every single day. It is an arduous and often long term process with miraculous results.
I applaud all of my friends and celebrities such as Ringo Starr that are promoting peace. But unfortunately, in order to have peace you must FIGHT hatred. Promoting peace and love is all good and well, but without fighting ignorance, hatred and violence it means nothing.
God Bless and guide with strength the families of those brave American heroes that died in the line of duty protecting our freedoms and our rights to live peacefully. And have mercy on the family of the misguided young man that committed the barbarous acts of evil, under the guise of hateful groups and individuals such as Black Lives Matter.
Her soft hands
warmly knead my flour
a precious cargo
booming to land another flawless mission.
To Paris on her smell.
He doesn’t feel the final rivet snap
shielding the butt tip of his cockpit
as it rips apart
on his final approach
to her runway.
He smells the Paris of her hands baking.
The Khawaarij (Kharijites) are one of the deviant sects, as is proven by the texts and by scholarly consensus. Al-Bukhaari and Muslim narrated that Yusayr ibn ‘Amr said: I said to Sahl ibn Hunayf: Did you hear the Prophet say anything about the Khawaarij? He said: I heard him say – and he gestured with his hand towards Iraq –: “From there will emerge people who recite the Qur’an, but it will not go past their collarbones. They will pass out of Islam as an arrow passes out of the prey.”
Ibn Maajah narrated that Ibn Abi Awfa said: The Messenger of Allah said: “The Khawaarij are the dogs of Hell.”
Where did such a violent ideology presumably based on a religion spring from?
Who Were The Kharijites?
Who exactly were the Kharijites? They were an early offshoot of Islam that developed during the civil war between the Prophet Muhammad’s cousin Ali and the governor of Damascus Mu’awiyah.
The Muslim state enjoyed relative stability under the caliphates of Abu Bakr and Umar ibn Al Khattab. During the caliphate of Uthman ibn Affan, the third Caliph, discord began to seep into the state. This discord ultimately resulted in the assassination of Uthman by renegades. A dispute, then, arose over the succession of Uthman: some supported Ali, the Prophet’s cousin, and others supported Mu’awiyah, the governor of Damascus and Uthman’s relative.
This dispute culminated in the Battle of Siffin in 657. The initial battle went against Mu’awiayh. When he directed his forces to place copies of the Qur’an on their lances, indicating their desire to submit to binding arbitration “based on the Qur’an,” the forces of Ali refused to fight. Once the terms of the arbitration were set, a group of Muslims objected to the whole principle of arbitration and rebelled against both Ali and Mu’awiyah. These were the Kharijites. They declared them infidels worthy of murder. Even though Ali defeated most of them at the Battle of Nahrawan in 658, a group survived and ultimately assassinated Ali in 661.
Kharijite belief is a form of radical fundamentalism. As noted in the Wikipedia entry, “They preached uncompromising adherence to the teachings of the Qur’an in defiance of corrupt authorities.” They also preached “absolute equality of the faithful” and maintained that “only the most pious should be caliph…even if he were an Abyssinian slave (the lowest social class of the era).” They spread their ideology violently, declaring anyone who does not believe as they do – even those who committed any major sins – as “infidels,” whose blood is allowed to be shed. They committed many atrocities against fellow Muslims, including the hacking to death of one of the governor’s of Ali and his pregnant wife.
The radical and violent extremists of today act very much like the Kharijites of old. They claim to commit their evil in the name of God and doing righteousness, just like the Kharijites of old. They believe that those who do not espouse their radical views as “infidels” worthy of death, just like the Kharijites of old. They have committed – and continue to commit – horrific acts of violence against fellow Muslims, just like the Kharijites of old.
More on the History and Ideology of the Kawaareej: The Kawaareej and Their Renewed Ideology
The Deceptions of the Kawarij have been acknowledged by Muslim Scholars:
So how are the Khawarij connected to modern day terrorists? It is because their brutal and violent sect continues to this very day. They have evolved into a very powerful modern faction that also claims Islam as their religious base. This group is very powerful in Saudi Arabia and has been the driving force behind extremist terrorist activities in the Middle East, the United States and many other nations throughout the world for at least the past fifty years. They also have very wealthy financiers connected with oil profits in the Middle East and now also in other parts of the world. Who are these dogs of war?
They refer to themselves as the Wahhabi sect of Islam. Although in reality, many of their ideals and practices are far from traditional Islam. Like the Khawarij, they renounce Idolatry. So they have destroyed significant archaeological and Muslim historical sites on the Saudi peninsula over the years. Let me be clear. The entire Saudi government and people are not Wahabi. But the Wahabi sect has had siginificant influence on both the government and the people throughout their history. It is one of the reasons the country is so extreme in the control of peoples lives.
There are many examples of Wahabis extending their tentacles into sensitive areas of the world to increase their attempts at world domination. I don’t use that term lightly. I know it sounds like a script from the The Man From U.N.C.L.E or a James Bond chapter, but there is a significant truth to it. It has even been written that the Wahabi sect was originally created by the British to reinforce their power in the world.
One other fact is certain. And it answers the question of why radical sects claiming to be Muslim have taken such a strong foothold in the USA and especially strong in areas like Michigan. In the late 60’s and early 70’s, the wealthy oil-rich Saudi Wahabis strategically provided funding to establish Mosques to preach their radical form of religion throughout the USA starting in Chicago. Chicago at the time was the home of The Nation of Islam. And although The Nation of Islam had little to do with real Islam, a young prodigy named Malcom X was increasing their following by the thousands. This seemed a perfect seeding ground for the Wahabis.
And it was. They continued to seed Mosques throughout the USA and provided educational funding to young black ‘prospects’. I won’t make any connection to any current government leader in the USA, but the connections do exist, concealed away as they might be. Eventually Malcolm X made a trip to Mecca and realized some Muslims actually had blonde hair and blue eyes, and everybody got along just fine without the divisive practices so prevalent and endorsed in the USA. Malcolm decided to break with The Nation of Islam and their heretic leader, Louis Farrakhan. A few weeks later he was assassinated. I won’t make the connection, but others have done so quite convincingly.
But the Wahhabis continued to seed and preach their radical hate in Mosques they funded and built throughout the USA and later in England, France and other European nations. Eventually they spread the hate to other countries in Africa, Asia, and throughout the Middle East. But don’t take my word for it. Do the research yourself. Please keep in mind, not all Saudis are Wahabis and not all Wahabis are terrorists. But the ideology and it’s spread throughout the world has created an environment of hate and violence. This is not the peace and love of any religion we know of.
Here are a few links for further reading and research. I did some of the filtering for you as there is an abundance of some information and a scarcity of others.
A few definitions to understand from Wiki:
Finally, I conclude with an article on the importance and adherence to Wahabi philosophy within Daesh and an article on the Genghis Kahn tactics of Daesh. And a recent sobering article on why Daesh has initiated their own self-destruction.
This last video, like some of the articles, has to be filtered. But the video does provide some very important insights on the inner workings of the intelligence community and the Jihad movement.
I hope this essay has been productive for anyone seeking the answers. The better we understand the ideology we are fighting, the better we are prepared to educate on an ideology that not only conquers the evil, but also fortifies a much better worldview for everyone exploring or undecided. The only way to win the war is to win through ideology. Violence, hatred and the torture and killing of innocent people is wrong. This is an ideologic value that is thousands of years old. Much older than any distorted pseudo-religious and warped, man construed doctrine of ignorance. Those that survive the battlefield will be held accountable for their cruelty and callous disregard for human life. All of these are actions contrary to the teachings of Mohamed, Christ, Buddha, God and Allah.
(Revised link check February 2019)
POLITICS AND RELIGION:
The History of Man – Part One
God has no preference between a man and a woman. They are both equal in the eyes of God. God has no preference between a Christian, a Jew, a Muslim and a Buddhist. They are all equal in the eyes of God as long as they respect the creation of God’s Nature. The laws of God are universal and timeless. The interpretations of God’s laws by men are often flawed and selfish. Prophets are good people because they interpret the laws of God to men in a fair and just way. And they are at times, both exalted and persecuted, because they dole out fairness and justice to all men equally. But not all men consider themselves equal to other men in their own eyes.
Religions have killed in the name of God for thousands of years. Even Atheism has killed millions. Religious conversion has often been forced at the end of the sword or the gun. The concept itself is contrary to religious dogma. To believe and have faith in God is a personal and voluntary decision. If religion has to be forced upon someone, it is no longer religion. It becomes politics. Politics is a dogmatic belief created by men to impose their own idealistic idiosyncrasies upon others.
Recently, we have been daunted by ‘terrorism’. Men have terrorized each other, also for thousands of years. ‘Evolution’ is a gradual change over time. ‘Revolution’ is an abrupt social change forced by human political activity. It is important to differentiate between violent revolution and peaceful revolution. Peaceful revolution uses peaceful means to inspire dynamic change in a society. Jesus Christ, Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King were peaceful revolutionaries. They distinctly instructed their followers not to incite violence. Peaceful revolutions create long term change that develops firm roots within a social structure. They do so, because the social structure is mostly in agreement with the implemented changes.
Violent revolutions are short lived. Because similar to forcing religion upon someone, the ‘idealism’ will not be personal, nor will it be voluntary. So the political or religious facade will be discarded at the earliest opportune time. We have many examples of this in recent history. Two of the more significant instances is the failure of the Bolshevik Revolution with the fall of the USSR, and the failure of Mao’s Great Plan with the introduction of Capitalism in China.
A more recent example of a violent revolutionary that has killed millions is Castro’s crony Argentinian friend, Ernesto Guevara. His violent ideology and homicidal tactics continue to be idolized throughout the third world and in countries where some groups gravitate toward him as a ‘heroic’ figure. Heroic he is not. His actual claim to fame is as a mass murderer. His philosophy and early tactics soon inspired and activated other terrorist organizations to mimic and augment his callous violence toward humanity.
Targets were no longer strictly soldiers and warriors on the honorable battlefield. The days of respect among generals and for each others fallen soldiers ended with the bearded devil. And continues with other modern bearded demons. In many Muslim areas throughout the world, groups of fanatical and often violent individuals have incited the same senseless violence against innocent people. Without honor, without compassion and without tolerance, which are three of the most important foundations of all religions.
All of these groups have at least one thing in common. They all consider themselves devout followers of Islam. The truth is, they are all Islamic heretics, prostituting the cleanliness of Islam into a Satanic abomination of evil. They are the merciless. And they continue to taunt and kill the merciful.
Arrows Missing The Target – Part Two
Living in the Middle East I have met hundreds of Muslims from all over the world. Iraq, Iran, Jordan, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sudan, Somalia, Morocco, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, India, Bangladesh, the Philippines, Nepal, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Turkey, Armenia, Uzbekistan, and others. All of the people I have met are good people. They just want to work an honest job to feed their families. And be able to go to sleep safely to get up the next day and do it again.
Everyone I’ve spoken to wants the same exact thing. But there are those out there, as small a minority as they might be, that would prefer to force their ideals and their values on others through force. This is the evil in the world. And it is easy to recognize. Unless sometimes when the evil comes from the lips of a Rabbi or a Priest or an Imam. Their position as an intermediary to God, gives them undisputed credibility in the eyes of many people that are less than grounded in a solid foundation of belief.
So I had to understand WHY this happened. And that is when I started to research. Eventually I found three connections that completely explained the answers I was seeking. But they were not evident. They were not widely discussed or covered by the media. In fact, the opposite was true. The information was meticulously kept concealed. Finding the answers required sifting through volumes of misinformation and discovering carefully hidden historical facts.
to be continued
Education begins with teaching pre-K and kindergarten children how to communicate with each other. Teaching basic social communication skills is even more important than reading and math. The Lakota Tribes have a list of 12 values that should be taught to every one of our children from the moment they step into the educational system. These are values that have not changed in tens of thousands of years. They include Humility, Perseverance, Respect, Honor, Love, Sacrifice, Truth, Compassion, Bravery, Fortitude, Generosity and Wisdom.
We must learn to teach every child as an individual with individual strengths and weaknesses. Once a year is sufficient to test a student. We should nurture their strengths and their loves by guiding them to develop them. And we should gently reinforce their learning in the areas where they are not as strong. Education should be a choice of adventures, not a competition to subvert others.
Businesses should be investing in education at every grade level. Not as a way to advertise their business, but as a way to develop and recruit the very best talent in the field or area the business wants to grow. Higher education should not be just a ‘stepping stone’. It should be a long term investment for both the student and the business. We must look beyond the generic grade point average to examine individual strengths. Creating a tighter fit for both, the student developing their passion for a career, and the business developing the very best talent to assure a long term relationship.
It’s almost time for me to head back home
but today I feel a darkness creeping
across the globe dark forces seeping
they find the holes when I am sleeping
or when I am not fighting them and keeping
them on the defensive.
They are greedy green mean machines.
Real powers and real forces. There are those that
don’t believe me. They don’t see them every day.
So they give them holidays, so they can do what they may, and take away, more of what you pay and pay. They do not understand that only they can stop them. But they must fight them every day. Without a holiday. Believe what I say.
Drugs you don’t need.
Healing plants you can’t have.
Poisons in your food to make you pay.
Wars and weapons to pay and pay in lives.
Watching and listening, taking away your dignity,
your humanity, your joy.
Tricks to fool you, pay you to work,
then take your money away.
You never own anything. They own you.
You can stop them.
You must stop them.
Stop the banks from stealing.
Stop the companies from cheating.
Stop the people from lying.
Stop the government from killing.
Love is not religion.
Love is not a competition.
Love is not waiting for the reward.
Love is Nature.
