The Money Masters

Ever wonder where your money goes? Ever wonder where the all the revenue collected by the United States treasury goes? Wonder no more.

Keep in mind this video was created long before the ‘bailout’. I know of no one who believes banks should have gotten nearly a trillion dollars after losing almost seven trillion.

Why is it that auto manufacturers are subjected to close scrutiny and required to accept stringent guidelines for about 45 billion yet financial institutions are given eight hundred billion carte blanche?

Watch the video – it’s long but well worth your time.

Love Lifes’ Confusion

In the mist of random words one can find truth. Let the words flow from you and listen to what they may tell you. Never let others tell you through negative ways that they can show you the answers to life, for those answers will come with clouds of darkness. Listen instead to the rambling words of those who carry the love of life inside their Being.

Fast Food Politics

We are still in a stuggle for our freedoms. Most people look at the day and see the weather, its good, its bad. For me, I still see the day for what is is, an opportunity to make change. I find myself getting into C-Span and watching congress debate. The more I watch, the more I find myself realizing that I may be like them. I care about what affects me and my values. For me to make any change I must get involved. This is what we should all do. If you really care about government, you may need to change your career. Its easy being a polititian from behind the counter at the fast food restarant.

Media Manipulation

You are being manipulated. Some would have you believe it is for your own good. As Edward Bernays, widely considered one of the fathers of public relations said in his 1928 book ‘Propaganda’

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. …We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. …In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons…who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.”

True Conspiracies?

One of the most perplexing, political conspiracy theories of our time is, of course, the theory that the U.S. government was behind the tragedies that occurred on September 11, 2001. A host of claims have been made, yet, three theories stand out as being the most common among conspiracy theorists: 1) Controlled demolitions used to bring down the WTC towers; 2) cruise missile used to attack the Pentagon; and, 3) the shooting down of Flight 93.

Unfortunately, the war in Iraq combined with the numerous failures of the current administration serve as useful fodder for grand conspiracies of this magnitude. The long history of distrust against government has proven to be a useful defense mechanism, as most Americans have always encouraged a healthy degree of skepticism when being presented with information from an authority figure. Therefore, from the perspective of the brave American protecting his liberties and rights, the “truth” movement seems refreshing–almost invigorating.

Yet, the line between rational and irrational thought becomes thinner and less prevalent during dark times. Conspiracy theories gain momentum not from convincing scientific evidence presented in their arguments, but rather from mass hysteria and paranoia.”

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.

Trapped like a dreamer waiting to wake up.

As you begin to enter my world, reading every word image by image, I can only wonder where this will take us. I open my mind and let my words enter my hands as they become letters on the page. As I read what is written I feel we are connected in time.
You, help me write ideas that we share in the heart. The thoughts flow from my mind as if I’m being told each word, not thinking of what I’ m writing, or even how it will come out.
Imagine that there is no time, that somehow your thoughts are mine. We write what must be written. Sharing our deepest needs like souls from the same mother. We are not existing in the natural world now, but are in the world of imagination, trapped like a dreamer waiting to wake up. Slowly, word by word the illusions become reality, your thoughts become mine, and my emotions become yours. Together we can enlighten ourselves to the answers we seek, sharing this journey as friends walking the same path.
