You cant ever wake up!

You cant ever wake up!

Just a reminder,
We are all still asleep,
Yes, even me, the one and only,… Mc Cobb.
We wake into moments of clarity,
only to fall back to sleep.
We exist in this reality and therefore cannot be anything but asleep,
for this is only a dream world.

A Dream I Had

A Dream I Had

Ever had a dream that was so real, it stayed with you all day? I had one such dream this morning and cannot forget it, so I thought I would put it out there for all of you.

It was nighttime, clear skies, stars bright, and my brother and I was looking up at this triangular dark spot moving in the sky. When it passed through the sky, the stars that it should have blocked seem to act as if they were never blocked, but you could tell something passed because it was like moving a glass passed something, ever slightly would the stars move like air moves the grass. I tried to get my Father to see the object in the sky, but he could not see it. I knew what it was immediately but had never seen it in action, it was a stealth in full stealth mode.

Seconds later we, I’m not sure who all was in the building, we hiding from somebody or some group of people, a man sitting in a chair, He is one of them, military, cheeks are “bruised” bleeding, he is out of breath, sick, an off look about him, he appears distraught. I look at him and with compassing I said, “ its viral, isn’t it?” He answered “Yes”.

The dream is still fuzzy in by mind, I am questioning which took place first, but the vividness of the man, the question I asked and the Stealth flying over me are as real as my memories of Talking with my brother today.

Same as Cash my butt!

Same as Cash my butt!

Ever seen the advertisement,
“ American Express Travelers check, they are same as cash”.

I would like to warn those travelers thinking of using this product. I have been traveling as many of you are about to do, and thought it would be a bad idea to carry cash. I went to the bank and gave them my cash and for a fee they gave me back travelers check. They told me it was same as cash.

I soon was thirteen hours from home, with no cash, only these damn checks. I started trying to spend them, and was surprised that most of the cashers were so young they had never heard them. I was placed in very embarrassing spot not having any cash and the managers not wanting to accept “checks”. They told me they do not cash checks.

I was turned down time after time. I called to complain to American Express, but they told me the stores did not half to take them. Wow! They tell us they are the same as cash but hear in the real world, most people look at them as checks and they won’t cash them.

So next time you want to be safe and not carry cash and you think you will purchase some travelers checks, DON’T!!! You may find yourself with no way to pay for your gas or food and no place to turn for help in some place far from your bank and far from home.

Nights without hope, Days without dreams

Nights without hope, Days without dreams

So many of you out there are looking for something, or someone to believe in, I am too. It seems that the trust in anyone in government is, shall we say…lacking. We live in what should be the greatest country in the world, but is falling short of that goal.
People in other parts of the world are angry with us. Why is that? Could be that our beautiful country has been misled by a few greedy people? Have we become so accustom to getting the shaft that we just won’t do anything. Have we become the beaten child that thinks they deserve the treatment? Have we become like the housewife who never gets treated with respect and still decides to stay for, “that’s just reality”?
I hope we have not given up. I know it is hard, but do you remember a time when Kennedy was around? I don’t care which one, because they both had a power in them that gave this great country hope. But like others, like Martin Luther King, that gave us hope, but were killed right in front of our eyes.
We must start to demand more from those in power. We must protest the lack of caring in our own government. We must be lead by people that truly are great leaders, leaders that give hope to the people, leaders that unite our nation and unite countries of the world, a leader that is not in it for the power to make a select few friends happy, but a leader that sees the world as a fragile gift, a gift that can be a curse if wise decisions aren’t made. We need leaders that can speak properly and show that they have the mind to think, not just try to repeat what some writer put on a teleprompter. We need leaders who posses in themselves a concience and a heart for making good decisions.
In closing I open my heart to the world around me and speak the little peace we are still allowed too, as of now, with the knowledge that the reality that we are being watched so as not to step out of line too much. I leave you with my quite plea for change, change that will last.
May your life be filled with compassion, and forgiveness, so that you will see what path is best for all human kind, and the animals that share it. We have lost too many of both in recent years. Thank you all for reading this little rant. I hope it inspires you to not accept a life lead by those who are not good leaders. Demand better.
