"The Lakota Indians, who gave the world legendary warriors Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse, have withdrawn from treaties with the United States, leaders said Wednesday."
Oh Happy Day.
The Lakota Indians are teaching the rest of us how to save ourselves. Like Gandhi said "Do not participate in anything you believe is evil." What the United States did and is doing to the American Indians (and the rest of us) is evil.
America's Titanic economy is only a reflection of how worthless we've become. War for oil, food for fuel, nature illegal, corrupt government, genetically modified foods, all these stupid policies have consequences.
It's time for a value added process, starting from within.
I was trying to explain a picture in a book about slavery to my 8 year old granddaughter. She asked why the slaves didn't just walk off the plantations. Of course I explained about plantation brutality, paddy rollers, re-arrest with a new slave master, and Jim Crow.
The core of her question stuck with me.
Violence solves nothing but we can take our power back from man made "masters" or "experts." Unlike slavery and Jim Crow days, we have thought tools, brain mirrors, that can show us the big picture and help us find our role in it to support the highest good.
Maybe we all should follow the Lakota Indians lead and take our freedom back based on broken government agreements, and become what my brothers, the great singers Thomas and Tarmo Urb call "Citizen of Sun."
We really are one.

Chauncey Bailey did his best to let folks know what's really going on.
At the time of his murder, Chauncey was also working on a story about police corruption in Oakland according to his editor.
"Oakland Post Publisher Paul Cobb has said Bailey was investigating the bakery's bankruptcy and other financial doings as well as stories about police corruption. Cobb has denied telling police - as a detective's notes indicate - that Bailey was probing the bakery's role in "murders and other felonious activity." (Source has taken the original article down by 11/10/07 or available for cost originally posted: insidebayarea.com/oaklandtribune/ci_7139746)
Witnesses report that the killer fled the scene, not ran into the bakery after the shooting to hide the gun. The police raid justification was 'they just happened to be going in the bakery in a pre-scheduled raid' and "found" the gun.'
The day after Chauncey's family cleaned out his apartment, a family member reported that his computer was stolen out of the back of an old car they had it in overnight.
I confess I'm jaded.
I thought Gary Webb and Hunter Thompson were as bad as it could get.
The whole truth is not in yet.
If the gun was found in the bakery, why did the shooter have to leave, only to return and hide the gun close to where the murder happened?
When did he/gun return to be "found" the next day by a pre-scheduled raid?
Did anyone put the janitor up to killing the reporter, if it was him who did it?
What was in the police story about corruption that Chauncey was working on at the time of his murder?
Without his home computer, will the publisher reveal what's in the newsroom computer, Chauncey's last stories.
Could the story that contributed to his murder be in there?
Inquiring minds need to know.

In the mid 1990’s a series of articles written by Gary Webb were published in the San Jose Mercury News about why so much crack appeared on the urban streets of America in the mid 1980's. It contained answers to the question of how so many people, what seemed like the best and brightest, were suddenly addicted to the deadly drug.
“According to the San Jose Mercury News, (Webb’s Report) Nicaraguan Contras, run by the CIA, delivered tons of cut-rate cocaine to a young Los Angeles drug dealer named "Freeway" Rick Ross. Ross, a street-wise drug dealer of mythic reputation, turned the cocaine into crack and supplied the Crips and Bloods street gangs, which saturated the market with crack and used the profits to arm themselves with automatic weapons.
The Crips and Bloods developed chapters throughout the west. Ross later moved to Cincinnati and helped spread the crack epidemic across the country. Cocaine was supplied to Ross by Oscar Danilo Blandon Reyes, former leader of the guerrilla army named the Fuerza Democratica Nicaraguense (Nicaraguan Democratic Force) or FDN.
Blandon used the millions of dollars paid to him by Ross to buy weapons and equipment for his anticommunist army that unsuccessfully tried to overthrow Nicaragua's Sandinista government in the 1980s. "It is one of the most bizarre alliances in modern history: the union of a U.S.-backed army attempting to overthrow a revolutionary socialist government and Uzi-toting 'gangstas' of Compton and South Central Los Angeles," the Mercury News reported.”
Gary Webb was the author of the articles explaining how crack took over urban America so quickly. To me he is an American hero because he brought the truth to the American people at great cost to himself.
The case of the death of Gary Webb has all the ear marks of a murder, not a suicide, with a government cover-up possibility. In case you feel the language is too strong, check out what happened to Webb, whose book, Dark Alliance : The CIA, the Contras, and the Crack Cocaine Explosion, looks deep into Iran Contra. Webb's book provides documentation that the U.S. government during the Reagan years was responsible for the explosion of crack in the 1980's. Webb said he had more information to reveal.
Gary Webb was a journalist. Something was done to verify the material he presented. It's called the Iran Contra Affair.
Freeway Rick in Los Angeles, who is in jail for his role, has admitted to coordinating the efforts. "There are no poppy fields in Harlem," is a line from the movie “New Jack City” that still is true.
The suicide story goes that Webb shot himself twice in the head after leaving a note for the moving men. As a reporter, words were important to him.
If he was going to commit suicide, would he have left a note to the moving men that read, "Please do not enter. Call 911 and ask for an ambulance."?
People ask for 911 when they are trying to live, not with the intention to kill oneself strong enough to shoot themselves in the head twice with a 38.
If his determination to die was so great that he shot himself twice in the head, he would have saved 911 a trip and asked for the coroner to be sent. As a writer, I assume he was a man of words and truth was important to him. He risked his life for it, and lost it.
I’ve witnessed the effects of crack since the 1980's and have over the years lost many folks to the pandemic no matter what I did. Elected and appointed officials refused to deal with the subject in Harlem, treating it like they were treating AIDS.
Crack was introduced in a gentle way. It usually happened when a person was over their head in an emotional situation, like the death of a loved one, and was casually offered crack as a way not to feel all the pain in the moment. Or as a party favor shared by folks who thought the host was their friend or family.
Most did not understand what it was the first time they hit it. Within a few days, addiction would set in. Another customer, another contributor to the Iran Contra fund.
Many reported that the only time after the first few free hits they got free crack again, was when they were trying to quit, or until that notion passed.
The only folks I know who broke the addiction did so through the Lord. The rest are hopelessly lost, still.
Here's some of the material available for your review.
From The Nation: "Webb's tale is a sad one. He was on to something but botched part of how he handled it. He then was blasted and ostracized. He was wrong on some important details but he was, in a way, closer to the truth than many of his establishment media critics who neglected the story of the real CIA-contra-cocaine connection. In 1998, a CIA inspector general's report acknowledged that the CIA had indeed worked with suspected drugrunners while supporting the contras.
A Senator named John Kerry had investigated these links years earlier, and the media had mostly ignored his findings. After Webb published his articles, the media spent more time crushing Webb than pursuing the full story. It is only because of Webb's work--as flawed as it was--that the CIA IG inquiry happened.
So, then, it is only because of Webb that US citizens have confirmation from the CIA that it partnered up with suspected drug traffickers in the just-say-no years and that the Reagan Administration, consumed with a desire to overthrow the Sandinistas in Nicaragua, allied itself with drug thugs."
From the Portland Independent Media Center: "A quick reiteration of the official obituary waffle is as follows: reported first, a suicide with multiple wounds to the head, then a suicide with a wound to the head, then there's a speculated shotgun wound to the face, by Mike Ruppert, because of a verbal report, given to Ruppert from the coroner's office implying that Webb's face was beyond recognition , and finally 2 wounds to the head with a .38 caliber revolver.
Incidentally his gun was kept in the nightstand next to his bed. It was his Dad's gun. Nice touch of detail here. But what does it tell us? Maybe, Gary was concerned, because he had been the recipient of death threats? Maybe that's the REAL reason he had a gun in a drawer next to his bed. According to an informative and revealing article /audio segment, on Alex Jone's Prison Planet website, Gary did indeed have something to be very worried about: Ricky Ross, one of Gary Webb's primary sources had spoken to Gary in the days before his death.
Gary told Ricky that he had seen men scaling down the pipes outside his home and that they were obviously not burglars but 'government people'. Gary also told Ricky that he had been receiving death threats and was being regularly followed. It was also mentioned that Gary was working on a new story concerning the CIA and drug trafficking. Moreover, why was there so much confusion about the method and number of wounds? Was it that difficult to sort out? Or was something else going-on? I really liked the potshot in the final obituary about the feverish conspiracy theorists on the internet who had been calling the coroner's office, demanding to know the number of wounds Webb ACTUALLY sustained. Now trying to determine factual details based on confused reports makes you a conspiracy theorist. Move on folks, nothing to see here! "
The Media Awareness Project has listed an article from the San Francisco Bay Guardian explaining the terror Webb was living with in this interview. "...Then the Mercury publicly disowned the story-without ever giving Webb or readers a convincing reason why. The paper's editors had encouraged Webb in his research, but in the firestorm that followed "Dark Alliance"'s publication they retracted their support for the series. After the controversy, the Merc, which is owned by media giant Knight-Ridder, exiled Webb from its Sacramento bureau to the police beat in Cupertino. Webb left the paper and expanded "Dark Alliance" into a book of the same name. Just published by Seven Stories, it reinforces Webb's investigations with newly uncovered evidence. But the mainstream media are ignoring this new evidence too: the Post, the New York Times, and the L.A.
Titnes have all ignored Webb's book-no reviews, no news stories, no coverage at all.
But as Rep. Maxine Waters (who wrote a strong introduction for the book ) told me, "Gary Webb has uncovered one of the dirtiest little secrets of the Reagan administration -that we, as a government, introduced a drug to America's inner cities that is literally killing thousands of kids, and that we did it purely for short-term political gain in support of a cause that didn't deserve our support in any way. For reporting that, Webb lost his job. But the book provides vindication."
We interviewed Webb by telephone while he was in Seattle promoting his book.
Bay Guardian: Did you do much new reporting and research for the book after the series ran?
Gary Webb: A lot of stuff came out after the series ran. We got 3,000 pages of new documents from the L.A. Sheriff's Department's investigation that was just amazing. Probably 90 percent of the book is new.
BG: What were your most interesting or unexpected new findings?
GW: Some of the most interesting is the stuff the Mercurys News chickened out on and wouldn't run. What was going on in the DEA's office in Costa Rica, where the U.S. drug agents were supposed to be investigating drug crimes but were either looking the other way or, as a customs investigation found, were trafficking drugs themselves. This conspiracy went farther than the CIA. It was so liberating to have the chance to lay out everything you have in context and explain to people why it matters.
BG: How did you get the new information?
GW: FOIA requests, tips, and the CIA Inspector General's January report. And anytime you do a big story people come out of the woodwork, and we had a number of those --specifically this fellow Enrique Miranda, who was an aide to drug lord Norwin Meneses.
BG: One of the main criticisms of the series was that you didn't have a smoking gun. Do you think you have one now?
GW: When you're dealing with the CIA, you're lucky to find any f*cking paper at all, much less a smoking gun. You're never going to find a CIA memo that says, "Go sell crack in L.A." So you have to gather as much evidence as you can, take a good hard look at what you've got, and a legitimate conclusion can become very obvious.
BG: Why do you think the mainstream press --from your own paper to the Washington Post, the L.A. Times, and the New York Times -- went so far out of their way to discredit your series?
GW: Because it's a very dangerous story. It makes people think bad things about their country and their government. Newspapers will let you think bad things about a certain politician, but when you start questioning the foundations of our democracy they say, "He's a troublemaker, a zealot, a maniac."
BG: Were there any valid criticisms that you went back and reconfirmed, or any holes that you subsequently filled?
GW: Sure, absolutely. I've said all along that some parts of that series should have been explained more fully. It was accurate but incomplete. What I tried to do with the book is show all the other evidence that we couldn't get into the newspaper, or were actually prohibited from writing for the newspaper. Initially it was a problem of space, but in the end it was self-censorship on behalf of Mercury News management.
BG: Do you think the decision was made in Knight-Ridder's super-headquarters, or was it strictly Merc management?
GW: I don't know, but I do know Knight-Ridder has backed the decision all the way. I think the thing that frightened them the most about my story was that suddenly there was this whole reactivation of activist black groups getting together and demanding some political changes in Washington. And I think, honest to God, that they were more scared by the Senate Intelligence Committee hearings than anything, when hundreds of citizens actually showed up to watch their government in action and started hooting at the antics they were witnessing. It scared the living hell out of them.
BG: So what happens next? Do you hope Congress finally moves to do a full investigations?
GW: I think we may actually create enough pressure to force the government to release the rest of the reports we've done on this. The public has to get riled up, though, or the government won't do anything. I've been told that the key 600-page report on this, the one that contains the secret agreement between the Justice Department and the CIA allowing the CIA not to report drug trafficking, will never be released, will never be declassified. I don't imagine the CIA will ever be very eager to let that one loose."
Here's the final piece for why I believe Gary Webb's death was a possible murder and a probable cover-up.
The Sacramento County Coroner's Office website says: "The Sacramento County Coroner's Office is mandated by the California Government Code § 27491 et seq. to determine the circumstances, manner, and cause of sudden or unexplained deaths in Sacramento County.... When a death appears to be from natural causes, the cause of death may be available after 11:00 a.m. the morning following the death. However, when the death is the result of a homicide, suicide, automobile accident, and in many natural deaths, the cause of death will not be available for several weeks because the forensic pathologist will order toxicology tests. This does not delay the release of the body."
Yet, in the case of the death of Gary Webb the Associated Press reported: "Gary Webb, Reporter Who Linked CIA to Drug Sales, Dead at 49 The Associated Press Published: Dec 12, 2004 SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Gary Webb, a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter who wrote a controversial series of stories linking the CIA to crack cocaine trafficking in Los Angeles, has died at age 49.
Webb was found Friday morning at his home in Sacramento County, dead of an apparent suicide. Moving-company workers called authorities after discovering a note posted on his front door that read, "Please do not enter. Call 911 and ask for an ambulance." Webb died of a gunshot wound to the head, according to the Sacramento County coroner's office."
I received an e-mail from "From The Wildnerness:" in response to my questioning, which is where the first report of shotgun use came from.
FTW staff "Admin" 1/31/05
"Gary Webb knew very well that police offcers cannot declare a homicide or suicide crime scene until the victim is pronounced dead. Police officers cannot pronounce death. Only doctors and paramedics.
Therefore the logical step is to always contact paramedics first and they are the first to enter the secne after a body is discovered. It's simple."
Without access to the official reports with supporting documentation, I really don't know if it's simple. How can anybody know?
Like any good reporter, I look at who benefits most when something like this happens.
Webb was about to get rich from his book. A sitting congress person wrote the intro. He had just sold his house so he was probably sitting on some cash. Even if he had nothing, money was coming.
He was an in demand speaker who finally was stepping on stage to talk about his work. In other words, he was a man with a purpose. Suicide makes no sense here.
If he just spoke about what was proven in Iran Contra, he had plenty of material to work with. The flaw is not with the truth.
What information did Gary have about folks in the Reagan administration and crack that was new? Where are they now? Why would anybody want to murder Gary Webb?
The inventor Bruce DePalma once wrote "Truth has a ring to it which is unmistakable to those in search of it."
Iran Contra was real. Check it out.

I asked this question awhile ago and never got an answer. In case the problem is I need to ask again, I'm still asking.
Did Peter Jennings die of World Trade Center Illness?
World Trade Center Illness is one of those things that demand we look at both sides of the coin, the cause and the effect. I've been looking for a straight answer about what type of cancer did Peter Jennings have. If you know, please leave a note on this blog.
I know the media is saying lung cancer, but was it on the internal (small cell) or external (large - non-small-cell).
Peter Jennings was one of the many heroes of 9/11, reporting on the drama of the day for 16 hours straight. As a person living in New York City at the beginning of this century, he was exposed to many of the toxins from the WTC. Despite the government theory that the dust from the WTC magically stopped around 14th Street, in reality it traveled as far as the winds could carry it. Paper from the buildings were found as far east as Long Island.
If Jennings had small cell lung cancer, then it was probably from smoking. If he had non-small cell cancer, then that's caused by chemical exposure, like what happened as a result of the pulverized material from the WTC.
I think there is a possibility that Jennings is the first big name personality to die from WTC Illness.
This is just a theory based on chemical and other toxic materials from the WTC that he and others in the area were/are exposed to and their known impact on health. Not rocket science.
I can't find anywhere the real reason he passed, just the general catch all phrase "lung cancer."
Yet it seemed so fast, like squamous cell cancer.
I think, mostly due to the silence around the type of lung cancer that Jennings had, that he possibly got his lung cancer from exposure to the chemicals from the demolition of the WTC.
I've been suspicious of Jennings cancer based on my mother in love, Edith Akuna, passing in April, 2005 from squamous cell cancer on the exterior of her lungs.
Squamous cell is usually a skin cancer, but it can happen on internal organs.
Edith was a smoker too and I initially assumed that her lung cancer was from that. But then I learned that internal squamous cell cancer does not come from smoking, it comes from industrial grade chemical and other toxic material exposure on internal organs.
When the buildings fell New Yorkers were put on lock down. There is no way around it, the EPA lied and there was danger in the dust. The dust from the pulverized buildings and materials inside include according to the WTC TOXIC MATERIAL LIST FROM Natural Resources Defense Council -NRDC REPORT: Building Materials (1.2 million tons), Jet Fuel (thousands of gallons), Dioxins, Mercury from computers and light bulbs, Asbestos (300-400 Tons), Concrete (424,000 Tons), Fiberglass, Lead from 50,000 Personal Computers - (4 lbs. lead ea. or 200,000 lbs. of pulverized lead released into the air), Main Frame Computers (300), Wire and cables (Hundreds of miles) Transformer Oil contaminated with PCB's (130,000 gallons), to name a few.
People in the area breathed, ate and drank the chemicals. It was on their skin, in the water they bathed in. On the toys their children played with. In the curtains they looked through as they redefined their lives.
"Another possibility is that Jennings had late stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) or a very aggressive type of NSCLC, such as large-cell undifferentiated carcinoma, which accounts for about 10% to 15% of all NSCLC. This aggressive cancer can be found in any part of the lung and it carries a very poor prognosis. " From Medpagetoday.com
Many rescue workers are already getting sick, and others in the area are experiencing reduced vitality shall we say.
Was Jennings cancer a normal, small cell cancer or a squamous (non-small cell) cancer? If it was regular cancer, then that makes the point no less valid. People in NY, NJ and CT have been exposed to known carcinogens and the clock is ticking.
Whether I’m correct or not regarding Jennings, we’ve got work to do.
I've been writing the City of New York and finally got a response.
I told them that their strategy of waiting to see what happens was incorrect because by the time they found the problem, it would be too late.
From: Robert M. Brackbill, Ph.D, M.P.H Principal Investigator World Trade Center Registry NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene He wrote about the World Trade Center Health Registry (April 4, 2005):
"We will be doing epidemiological follow-up including re-surveying enrollees and measuring incidence of diseases that take longer to develop by using cancer registries and death certificates. Follow-up will be very important for our being able to ascertain the presence of such problems you describe, which warrant further investigation. If adverse health effects are identified at any point during the 20 year follow-up of registry enrollees (of which we have over 71,000), a comprehensive description of those findings will be posted on our website and communicated through the press and directly to health care providers." With all we know about the results of exposure to toxic material like asbestos, benzene, etc., they are waiting to see if there is a problem which “warrants further investigation” so they can write a “comprehensive description of those findings.”
What the !#%&. I’m not accusing the medical community of malice. Just being good business people developing customers.
Rather than stress means to reduce the chance of developing cancer like early detection, proper nutrition, medical hemp, etc., they say they’ll let us know if something develops.
We don't need a description of what’s happening. Common sense addresses that. There is much information already available about the results from exposure to those materials.
What is needed are health strategies for people to minimize their risk of getting sick from the exposures. The time to address this issue so something could be done has just about passed.
Here’s what I think needs to be done.
1. Regular health screening and treatment needs to be available at no cost for all exposed, beginning with those who don’t have any health insurance.
Since that group is most likely to not have seen a doctor recently, and may be too poor to afford a healthy diet, clean water, etc., I believe they are at great risk to develop cancer.
2. Legalize hemp and tax it at 20% to cover health care costs and other social programs.
With billions of dollars of marijuana sold every year, the tax could be a substantial revenue source.
3. More research needs to be done on how to effectively deal with these cancers. Consider “Sharks Don't Get Cancer : How Shark Cartilage Could Save Your Life” by William I. Lane and Linda Comac.
I’ve posted on line for free a copy of Niro Markoff Assistent’s book WHY I SURVIVE AIDS. The second part of her book has great exercises and life style suggestions for reversing disease. She healed herself from HIV with ARC back in 1986.
Her book was originally published by Simon and Schuster, but then Simon and Schuster was purchased and the option on Niro’s book dropped.
SCIENCE AND HEALTH by Mary Baker Eddy is also on line for free.
4. Consider the old Water Cure from the book BACK TO EDEN by Jethro Kloss. The problem is the toxins in the body, so a solution may be to keep ones body, inside and out, as clean as possible. Distilled water draws more toxins and minerals, so take a mineral supplement or add more mineral rich foods to your diet should you switch to a cleaner water like distilled.
5. Demand action from the elected and appointed officials now.
6. Talk with local health care folks about the real dangers from exposure to toxic materials.
7. Get to the truth about what really happened on 9/11. Broken and burned buildings are one thing, pulverized toxic material, quite another.
8. Incorporate hemp and hydrotherapy into healing strategies. Check out Richard M. Davis' USA Hemp Museum as a starting research point. I put up a page called "Apply Medical Marijuana to World Trade Center Illness".
9. Pray and meditate. Then share your conclusions too.
If Jennings death was from WTC toxic exposure, then he would do for WTC Illness what Rock Hudson did for AIDS. There are still folks walking around like they don't have a clue this is going on.
Caroline Myss in her book “Anatomy of the Spirit : The Seven Stages of Power and Healing” speaks of “Wisdom Erases Karma.” It’s time to wise up on this issue.
Those responsible for 9/11 were also responsible for telling the EPA to alter the safety report and put the city on lock down, forcing the people to be exposed to the toxins.
If you have not done so already, go to reopen911.org or do a search for "9/11 was an inside job." One of the many issue they address is a piece on the toxins from the WTC. There you will also see the evidence that 9/11 WTC, buildings 1, 2 and 7 (which was not hit by a plane) all fell in the same style, that of a controlled demolition, making the air the consistency of Drano.
In conclusion, for the above reasons I think that Peter Jennings may have died from World Trade Center related toxins, and thousands more are in grave danger as a result of the controlled demolition known as 9/11.
We are overcoming now.

A great journalist was murdered on the streets of Oakland, CA. Nobody seems to know why, only that it was probably a hit. His name is Chauncey Bailey. He was my brother-in-law, my journalistic hero, and a man cut down in his prime.
As this interview demonstrates, there are people of great class and talent ignored by main stream media for decades while men without answers hog the attention of the money media.
Al Sharpton and Armstrong Williams are the men of my generation who got the mic on the news. The world did not appreciate him enough. A pearl of a man he was.
Chauncey fought for truth be it in Oakland or Detroit. If there was a truth to be told that would help the community he was serving, he got it out in a way folks could easily understand.
God knows Chauncey's work and has finally given Edward R. Murrow an equal in the realm of heaven. His work survives him and will be serving as a journalistic standard for decades to come.
"New America Media Executive Director Sandy Close said of Bailey, "Chauncey was a co-founder of New America Media and one of the best investigative journalists working bar none. He was brave in the face of whatever challenges he had to confront, especially any institution, public or private, that was not living up to the communities expectations and standards. He loved focusing on the local and global, he was adept at connecting the Bay Area Black community to the international African diaspora. He once said. "All of the ethnic media are like fingers on a hand. Only together will we be strong like a fist.' Chauncey Bailey was distinguished by his work in the Oakland Tribune, Oakland post, San Francisco Sun Reporter, San Franciscvo Bayview, Soul Beat TV and Our TV among others. He will be sorely missed.""
Like many in California and Michigan, we've been blessed by Chauncey's insight, and pray for greater glory for him. Lord know's he's earned it in this life based on the work he did including:
The Tobacco Industry and Blacks
GOD BLESS CHAUNCEY BAILEY. WELL DONE MY BROTHER. WELL DONE.

In this post 9/11 lie, we are suppose to exchange freedom for the illusion of safety.
Congessman Kucinich during the debate took a stand on the freedom to love whom one chooses. For those against love or who insist on controlling who other people love, this may be the wrong thing to say.
But for those of us who love this country and the freedom it holds, follow Willie Nelson's lead and support Congressman Kucinich for president in '08.
With Kucinich, we no longer have to choose the lesser of two evils for president. Folks my age, over 50, know what I'm talking about.
Here's Kucinich on the freedom to love.
From the YouTube/CNN Democratic Debate
"COOPER: Our next question is on a topic that got a lot of response from YouTube viewers. Let's watch.
QUESTION: Hi. My name is Mary.
QUESTION: And my name is Jen.
QUESTION: And we're from Brooklyn, New York.
If you were elected president of the United States, would you allow us to be married to each other?
COOPER: Congressman Kucinich?
KUCINICH: Mary and Jen, the answer to your question is yes. And let me tell you why.
Because if our Constitution really means what it says, that all are created equal, if it really means what it says, that there should be equality of opportunity before the law, then our brothers and sisters who happen to be gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered should have the same rights accorded to them as anyone else, and that includes the ability to have a civil marriage ceremony.
Yes, I support you. And welcome to a better and a new America under a President Kucinich administration.
Vote Kucinich for positive change. Restore America to her rightful role in world peace, as an innovator.
For those who have a problem with unconditional love, I urge you to read the groundbreaking book LOVING SOMEONE GAY.
Whatsoever we do to any of the Lord's children, we do to him.
RESTORE AMERICA - VOTE KUCINICH AND LET THE PEOPLE GET BACK OUR FREEDOM.

The decisions to not challenge the EPA’s claims that the air was safe to breathe, the water safe to drink at the time the claims were made; or the dynamics behind voting for and supporting the Iraq War, are up now. Clinton, Edwards and others may not survive the results of their actions or inactions as 9/11 Truth comes to the forefront of the conversation, led by the Firefighters Union in NYC. I’m sorry is not always enough.
As alternatives, folks are doing T charts of Ron Paul (R) vs. Denis Kucinich (D). After all, Bill Maher says Ron Paul is his hero, and I respect Bill Maher. He’s spoken great truth. Yet, dynamic thinker Willie Nelson is backing Denis Kucinich.
Here’s my Ron Paul side of the T chart.
‘I ain’t sayin’ he’s a gold digger, but he ain’t messin with no broke, broke.............’
Straight out of the military/congressional part of Eisehnower's farewell address, Ron Paul was a 70's supporter of Ronald Reagan, the one who failed to fund early AIDS research and introduced crack into the Black community for a slush fund called Iran Contra. For more on the evil in the Reagan administration read Dark Alliance The CIA, the Contras, and the Crack Cocaine Explosion by Gary Webb and And the Band Played On: Politics, People, and the AIDS Epidemic by Randy Shilts and William Greider.
Ronald Reagan was “the front man” for the neo nazis in charge when they took over openly in 1980 and allowed the hostages to be released after he took office. Prescott Bush, the president’s grandfather, was censured by congress for being Hitler’s US banker. This is public record.
Paul's early support of Ronald Reagan helped open the door for no to low AIDS funding for whatever reason, and crack into the Black community (Iran Contra) in the 80’s. So many healing, brilliant souls were slaughtered as a result of those decisions about under funding AIDS and introducing crack to people when they were at their weakest, like the end of a relationship, the death of a loved one, an innocent party favor promoted as used by the cool. The gang system in Los Angeles was created to market crack and keep fear alive in the population. Tookie Williams was executed for a reason that had nothing to do with the charges against him.
With AIDS and crack, ancillary lives in the millions were also shattered due to a loved one’s experience with either situation.
Given the ravages from Reagan, I see where Ron Paul’s racist label came from. The results of their actions or inactions, knowingly or not, are still impacting.
Here's from the CDC short sheet of information on AIDS a dozen years after Reagan took control.
“These are answers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to questions concerning the scope of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the United States.
1. How many people have died of AIDS in the United States?
June 5, 1992, marked 11 years since the first published report in the United States of what we now know was AIDS. During this time, the number of AIDS deaths has increased each year, from 135 deaths in 1981 to more than 30,000 deaths in 1991. More than 23,000 deaths have been reported for 1992, with reporting still incomplete. According to projections, the cumulative number of deaths from HIV infection and AIDS will likely exceed 300,000 by the end of 1994.
2. How many people are infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that approximately 1 million people are currently infected with HIV in this country alone, representing approximately 1 in 250 Americans.”
The NIH reports regarding crack use
“National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH)*****
In 2005, 33.7 million Americans aged 12 and over reported lifetime use of cocaine, and 7.9 million reported using crack. About 5.5 million reported annual use of cocaine, and 1.4 million reported using crack. An estimated 2.4 million Americans reported current use of cocaine, a significant increase from the previous year, and 682,000 reported using crack, which was also significantly higher than in 2004 (467,000). There were an estimated 872,000 new users of cocaine in 2005 (approximately 2,400 per day), and most were aged 18 or older although the average age of first use among recent initiates age 12 to 49 was 19.7 years.
The percentage of youth ages 12 to 17 reporting lifetime use of cocaine was 2.3 percent in 2005. Among young adults aged 18 to 25, the rate was 15.1 percent, showing no significant difference from the previous year.”
So much for the war on drugs. It’s always been a war against the people anyway.
A positive Ron Paul note. He did sponsor the Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2007.
This bill has been lost in the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security since 4/20/07. ”
and is warning folks that the folks behind 9/11 have another surprise in store for us, if they can get away with it.
Kucinich for President. http://kucinich.us/ Kucinich is not owned by business, will establish a department of peace, is a hemp advocate and good person.

1. Use hemp to scrub the air of the excess greenhouse gas.
2. Shift immediately to clean energy. Replace toxic processes, like making paper from wood, with non toxic processes, like making paper from hemp.
3. Harvest the breaking ice bergs and use that water for drinking and irrigating crops.
4. Plan the possible shift from bee to wind pollinated foods in case the bees don't return next year.
5. Restore truth and competency to government. Shift it back to old school. The Will of the People.
6. To better coordinate the distribution of food, water, health solutions and shelter, make computer access and skills available as rights to communicate and learn.
7. Take time every day to look within for answers. Follow your thoughts to their source if you're not already doing so.

There is a Real ID Act Rebellion going on.
I am so grateful for the bravery displayed by the states standing up to the Real ID Act, and all the citizens who support them in their actions. The American Congress is concerned if a Mexican family moves next door who didn't fill out their papers right and not the many losses of freedom, like the freedom to go to Canada, or Mexico, free speech, fair trial, etc.
The Real ID Act is another tool Nazis use to more easily arrest the people, and assure their compliance in paying off the government debt. To accept the Read ID Act is to accept the consequences at the moment when your 'papers' have been declared invalid, lost in transit, dropped for affiliation, or for whatever reason.
It’s like we’re in the movie Casablanca. The words that usually follow an unfulfilled request of 'papers please', or whatever reason, like they thought they were in danger, are, as you're running in fear, "Get Set, Point, Fire." That's what the tape recorder repeated that was recording during the Kent State murders.
From the great website Common Dreams
"For 37 years the official cover story has been that a mysterious shot rang out and the young Guardsmen panicked, firing directly into the “mob” of students.
This week, (5/7/07) that cover story was definitively proven to be a lie.
Prior to the shooting, a student named Terry Strubbe put a microphone at the window of his dorm, which overlooked the rally. According to the Associated Press, the 20-second tape is filled with “screaming anti-war protectors followed by the sound of gunfire.”
But in an amplified version of the tape, a Guard officer is also heard shouting “Right here! Get Set! Point! Fire!”
The sound of gunshots follow the word “Point.” Four students soon lay dead. Two days later, two more would die at Jackson State University, as police fired without provocation into a dorm."
9/11 is another example of the government turning its weapons on We The People.
Sending people to war for toxic energy is another.
These evil folks, who want papers on free people, must learn that our souls are not for sale. The Lord, the creator and sustainer of all, holds the papers on me, not the plantation of the United States. That's what it means to be free.
If you have not done so already, please read the on line, an about 100 pages ebook.
The book is called:HOW I CLOBBERED EVERY BUREAUCRATIC CASH-CONFISCATORY AGENCYKNOWN TO MAN ... a Spiritual Economics Book on $$$ and Remembering Who You Are by: Mary Elizabeth: CroftThe book is posted for free as an ebook at:
It's a work of understanding.
This book adds additional insight into the drama.
Given the level of debt this country is in, they need to card the straw men to secure their loans. Like Herod and the baby Jesus’ family, an accurate accounting is required to secure the debt. I'm sure I'm not the only citizen who has done her best to stay out of the system since '84. Like Dr. E. K. Ross said, 'once I learned I could do without, the rest was relatively easy.'
To support the government in its current form is to support murder, torture, corruption, legislated toxic environment, and failed health & education systems.
If this Real ID Act goes through, make sure you can get your life down to two suitcases quickly. Pack your bags for the concentration camps that are being built in advance, just in case. More efficient that way.
"THE LAND OF THE FREE...AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE."
Time to turn this situation around.
Just say no to the Real ID Act. It's really just another tool the government can use to put us to death on request.

The basis for Sicko is already experienced.
We know our doctors have become business people by law, our government protects industry and the super rich, and 9/11 was an inside job. We know that the government lied about the dangers in the dust from the exploded World Trade Center and has denied health care to many suffering from World Trade Center Illness. My site on WTC Illness is http://www.geocities.com/cureworks2.
Without seeing a frame of Sicko, we know what's in that movie made by a master film maker. We've been playing it in our minds since AIDS hit about the same time that HMO's came on the scene. I’m sure this movie reveals the 3 card Monty game called Medicine, Inc. that is based in amazing greed. It will take the amazing grace of truth to re-set our health priority from money to patient care.
Please don't read that all medical professionals are greedy. We have some great healers, like Los Angeles' Dr. Leroy Vaughn, or New York's Dr. Ivan Black and others who have managed to keep patients first. Some of our greatest heroes, like the two doctors mentioned, are in medicine. Yet, money as the priority is an unnecessary burden to place on healers, with so much work to do. Time and money spent on insurance paperwork is taken away from patient care in many cases. Some care decisions are made by non medical people without a vested interest in the outcome other than money. No wonder health care is in the state it is in.
Medical mistakes and secondary infections picked up in a hospital are now the leading cause of death. The whole healthcare conversation is about how to pay for it rather than how to implement and improve it. Crazy.
A simple shift from money to health as the foundation of decision making in health care will make a radically positive change. The focus will be on prevention, cause, rather than the costs of dealing with the effects, sickness.
Simple steps like cleaning up the environment, the hospitals, the food and water supplies can reduce the need for health care. Hemp scrubs the air of the greenhouse gas CO2 as it grows and burns clean as biofuel so it should be re-incorporated into the ecosystem immediately.
Stress kills and is at cause for many illnesses. Adjusting our systems to reduce stress, rather that create high pressure dramas is another. Legalizing hemp and promoting hydrotherapy are other stress reducers that have a positive impact on health.
It's time to dismantle the Industrial Age's fear machine and empower the Information Age's enlightenment machines so we can work together and solve our problems.
I look forward to seeing Sicko and the constructive change it can bring to the vital area of caring for the health of the world's population. It's now July 17th and the movie still has not come to Lake Havasu City, AZ nor is it available on line. I wait in faith.
Truth is the only hope we have for freedom. Michael Moore has a track record of delivering truth.

We have been had, took, bamboozled, and if we don’t take our power back, we’re dead. I want to live. How about you?
The word evil is live spelled backwards. Based on results, there is evil in the White House and it’s up to We The People to clean it out. Demand truth and justice, please.
We are at the most critical time in human history. Albert Einstein said if the bees leave then man has 4 years left. The disappearing bees is a fact. The rapture is in process. It’s time for each soul to take a stand for good or evil, survival or death. Let's do what we can to survive.
We need Al Gore in the White House now. Today.
The number one issue we are dealing with is the environment. The leading environmentalist in the country is Al Gore.
I’ve been working with Richard M. Davis of the USA Hemp Museum on his recently release book HEMP FOR VICTORY: A GLOBAL WARMING SOLUTION.
In the book Richard gives chapter and verse of how to use hemp to help solve the problem of global warming. Hemp is a biomass champion that scrubs the air of the excess greenhouse gas CO2 as it grows and burns clean as biofuel four times more efficient than corn. Hemp oil can do anything fossil oil can do, only without polluting.
An additional service that hemp can serve is to supplement the upcoming food crisis because hemp is a wind pollinated plant. A 20% recreational hemp tax could finance large scale growing on unused federal land and create a slush fund to help folks out dealing with natural disasters, i.e. Katrina.
I write about Richard’s work because with all this information on how to heal our environment by reducing the cause, excess CO2, the way the government is structured, we just keep on burning overpriced toxic energy, taking toxic medicine, and killing ourselves to the beat of fear on earth.
With Bush, this solution is still illegal. Gore can restore sanity to our government and possibly our environment.
I want my president back, the one who received the most votes. Restore Gore to his rightful role. Commission John Kerry, the other elected President of the United States to serve as Vice President. These men have made their positions on the environment known. The choice is ours.
We can still have an ’08 election (or one 4 years from when Gore/Kerry is restored to President). Yet, this next year is key to our survival and to have it in the hands of George Bush is folly. The closer we are to the truth, the more freedom we have.
The little oil pimp should rule no more.

Freedom of the press is an illusion in America. That can change on a dime with your help. Use the web to contact the media and demand truth be restored to news.
The press ignores the real issues, like toxic energy is killing the earth, and talks about the price of gas could go to $4 a gallon.
It’s been going on a long time. Bush Sr.’s father, Prescott Bush, was Hitler's US banker (yes, the president of the United States is the grandson of Hitler’s US Banker). The Nazis, who the European community was wise enough to throw out, came to America, and are now fully in power by stolen elections, a gutted constitution, and fear, fear, fear.
To keep the planet on toxic energy took fear. It is difficult to pump fear in the face of truth. Millions of people from around the world marched in protest to the Iraq war. Thousands of people protested the Bush invocation as he was guarded into the White House. While witnesses on 9/11 were saying “explosions” we were told the building fell, or burnt as a result of being hit by planes. Little to no coverage of what's really going on.
Back in the early 80's, the media was reporting that AIDS was a gay disease that was a death sentence, that crack was the result of weak souls who could not control themselves, oil was the way to go, and money was the most important thing in America.
Of course now we know that:
AIDS is not a gay disease, never was. They were just the cases most reported by the media. Twenty years after her healing without traditional medicine by working with The Healer Within, Niro Markoff is still alive and healthy, teaching folks from her experience.
Crack was the result of targeting individuals during difficult times for addiction so the Reagan administration could have a slush fund (Iran Contra), Check out Gary Webb’s book DARK ALLIANCE about Iran Contra, the book that got him killed.
Oil is killing us and American greed has caused her to sell out like crack whores in search of a fix.
The problem reaches all the way up to the FCC. The son of a general was made the head of the Federal Communications Commission. Michael Powell, son of Colin, actively threw honest reporters off the air. He left shortly after his father left his job as Secretary of State. It’s just the way things have been done for a long time. Here’s some more national examples.
1. The great, former CBS chief Watergate reporter Daniel Shorr was fired for working to get the truth out.
If you don’t know who Daniel Shorr, is:
"Schorr attracted the anger of the Nixon White House. In 1971, after a dispute with White House aides, Schorr's friends, neighbors, and co-workers were questioned by the FBI about his habits. They were told that Schorr was under consideration for a high-level position in the environmental area. Schorr knew nothing about it. Later, during the Watergate hearings, it was revealed that Nixon aides had drawn up a list of enemies, and Daniel Schorr was on that list. Famously, Schorr read the list aloud on live TV, surprised to be reading his own name in that context. Schorr won Emmys for news reporting in 1972, 1973, and 1974 .After Nixon's resignation, Schorr attracted controversy when he received and published the leaked Pike Commission's report about illegal CIA and FBI activities in 1976. Called to testify before Congress, he refused to identify his source on First Amendment grounds, risking imprisonment. This did not mollify CBS executives, and Schorr resigned his position in September 1976.
He is now a senior news analyst for National Public Radio."
When CBS News refused to allow Shorr to report a story, he then gave the story to the Village Voice to get out. It was one of those 'you'll never work in this town again if your loyalty is to the truth' messages that was heard loud and clear. It was 5 years before Ted Turner brought Shorr back to the forefront when Turner asked Shorr’s help to create what is now CNN.
2. Successful American journalist Rita Cosby had the courage to call Ira Einhorn to tell him her show was going to do a story. Ira Einhorn was put in a murder frame for speaking up for the environment back in the 1970’s. Yet the courts continue to simply refuse to hear the appeals. There is no scientific evidence he murdered Holly Maddux, not a stitch.
I don’t think Rita Cosby had time to hang up the phone before they decided to cancel her show and let her contract run out.
In my opinion, Rita Cosby is another great journalist who has lost her job as a result of having the courage to look at the truth when the country is being run by People Of The Lie. Cosby needs to be her own television network, and sell the shows to others. She can start with a web back and bring web reporting up a couple of levels.
Other notable journalist standing for truth include.
3. Keith Olberman at MSNBC who is leading the charge for truth and justice on his show Countdown. Check out his videos on you tube, Google and yahoo for a taste.
4. Veteran reporter Helen Thomas has spoken truth to power many times. Her words must seem prophetic to some now. “George Bush Is The Worst President Ever”.
5. Rosie O’Donnell is being raked over the coals (bad choice of words) for speaking up about the truth of 9/11. It was an inside job.
6.. Hunter Thompson, the first interview in the Loose Change video was suicided. He was a reporter who spoke the truth. He reportedly committed suicide while on the phone with his wife with his daughter-in-law and grandchild in the house.
7. Phil Donohue was taken off of MSNBC for questioning what was going on with the war. The same thing happened to my sister, Robin Hardin, on a local level when she was ripped off the air in Detroit for asking questions about what was going on in her city, despite the fact that her ratings were good.
8. Gary Webb’s research on Iran Contra revealed the evil and racism in American government. He was suicided on moving day into his new house. The coroner's report said Webb shot himself twice in the head, with a shotgun.
9. Dan Rather and the 60 Minutes team did the piece on the president’s lack of military service. It cost Rather a 50 year association with CBS. He went straight to the future Dan Rather Reports in HDTV. You go boy!
There are many more examples.
There is nothing we cannot overcome, and the corruption in the American government is about to be flushed. Not violently, but by the light of truth. The Bush Administration stole the 2000 and 2004 elections. They were responsible for 9/11. Now what?
I thank the traditional media for the signs they are showing that they are waking up.
I thank the Lord for the web and its ability to place truth along side of the illusions.
It is up to us to separate the wheat from the shaft. This many grains, we all need to be involved.

Virgin Atlantic is to announce today that one of its 747 jumbo jets will be used to demonstrate that biofuels can power an aircraft. The project, which includes Boeing and General Electric, the engine-maker, hopes to have the “green” jumbo airborne in 2008.”
It's past time to get off of toxic energy so we can stop global warming and heal the environment. If an energy source kills us or hurts the environment, get off of it. Stop using it. Replace it with non-toxic alternatives like biofuels, solar, wind, hydro, magnetic and the like. This is not complex. It is only the greed of toxic energy that has us killing ourselves so the industry can keep getting record profits. Greed is when it's all about the dollar. It's time to be about saving our lives.
Richard M. Davis of the USA Hemp Museum, http://www.hempmuseum.org/ just finished a book called HEMP FOR VICTORY: A GLOBAL WARMING SOLUTION.
The book is about how hemp scrubs the air of the excess greenhouse gas CO2 as it grows, and burns clean as a biofuel. Davis includes a piece from the US Department Of Agriculture written in 1913 that’s all about hemp and what a wonderful plant it is, how to grow and process it, etc. He applies the successful HEMP FOR VICTORY program used in World War II to the modern problem of global warming.
A tax on recreational hemp would finance growing hemp on 20% of unused federal land and provide a bonanza of job and business ownership opportunities, fully funded. The excess funds could be used to help with the effects of global warming, i.e. some the victims of Katrina still need to be resettled.
Tain't fittin. Just tain't fittin' what 'da Bushwacker and 'da insurance companies done did to dem. We should fix that!
Looks like the book is just in time for the future. The first signs of the great shift to common sense, healing global warming, have begun. Enjoy the journey.
Here’s the entire article from:
"Virgin plans to fly 747 on biofuel in 200824th April 2007
The first commercial aircraft to be powered by biofuel will fly next year in what could be a significant step towards airlines reducing their oil consumption and carbon dioxide emissions.
Virgin Atlantic is to announce today that one of its 747 jumbo jets will be used to demonstrate that biofuels can power an aircraft. The project, which includes Boeing and General Electric, the engine-maker, hopes to have the “green” jumbo airborne in 2008.
The airline and its partners are testing up to eight biofuels to determine which is most effective at altitude. Ethanol, which is becoming an increasingly popular alternative to petrol in cars, has been rejected because it does not burn well in thin-oxygen environments.
The idea of replacing petrol with biofuel in cars is a significant trend in the car industry. Last year Ford announced a £1 billion research project to convert more of its vehicles to these new fuel sources.
However, converting an aircraft to run on biofuel was thought to be a much longer-term project and the announcement from Virgin today will surprise those in the industry who have scorned the idea.
Virgin hopes that biofuel-powered aircraft could be operating commercially within five years, which could help to cut significantly the airline industry’s carbon dioxide emissions. At present air travel contributes 2 per cent to 3 per cent of climate-change gases, but that level is increasing as the activity expands. The industry is investing in lighter aircraft and new engines to improve fuel efficiency, but biofuels could eliminate oil dependence entirely.
Sir Richard Branson, the chairman of Virgin Atlantic, launched an alternative fuels division last year, pledging the profits from his airline and trains for the next ten years.
A source close to the biofuel project said: “Everyone was saying that flying a plane with alternative energy sources was a decade away, but it is going much faster than that. The demonstration by a 747 next year will be a milestone in the airline industry’s attempts to reduce its CO2 emissions and cut its fuel bills.”

Let’s make a global warming miracle here.
Since we all live on the earth, we each must make her a priority too.
From: A Course in Miracles, Workbook, Lesson 23, 5.1-6
"...you are not trapped in the world you see, because its cause can be changed. This change requires, first, that the cause be identified and then let go, so that it can be replaced. The first two steps in this process require your cooperation. The final one does not."
WE “ARE NOT TRAPPED IN THE WORLD WE SEE”
We can change our way of living. It's time to put down the drama and deal with the issues at hand at the level of cause and effect. Together, we can do it.
What’s true about global warming? There are excess levels of the greenhouse gas CO2 in the air, at cause for the documented heating of the earth. The glaciers are melting. The weather is changing rapidly. 80% of the adult bee population left the hives in February ’07. Einstein said we’ve got 4 years from when the bees left the hives to be on the earth. The clock is ticking and a solution to global warming is illegal...at least illegal from the perspective of the oil controlled government. I beg of you, if you are in the United States to support the Industrial Hemp Act of 2007.
“This change requires, first, that the cause be identified”
One of the main problems at cause for global warming is excess CO2. While folks argue about the source of the excess gas, science says it's affecting the planet in a not so positive way for our survival here. If you have not done so yet, please see Al Gore’s AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH.
“and then let go”
Let us let go of lifestyles that are killing us. Toxic energy and polluting the environment does not support life.
Now, stop pretending not to know there is a simple solution to reversing the effects of excess CO2 in the air. That is by removing the cause - sufficiently reducing the excess greenhouse gas, CO2.
How? HEMP. HEMP. HEMP.
My friend at the USA Hemp Museum, Richard M. Davis, has a new book, HEMP FOR VICTORY: A GLOBAL WARMING SOLUTION. It's available in both color and black&white on line at lulu.com. The book was conceived at last year's Los Angels Million Marijuana March.
Richard M. Davis is scheduled to speak at this year's Global Marijuana March, ’07 in Los Angeles, the first Saturday in May.
Richard has in his book information we need to save ourselves from the results of using toxic energy. If you are interested in doing something to save your life, and man’s existence on the world, I urge you to buy and read his book when it’s available. In the meantime, visit the USA Hemp Museum’s bio fuels room. Richard’s working on a plan to use the old HEMP FOR VICTORY program successfully run during WWII as an effort to help win the war.
Just a few things I learned from Richard's book:
1. Hemp is a bio mass champion when it comes to scrubbing the air of excess CO2 gas as it grows.
2. As a bio fuel, hemp burns clean and many power plants are already adapted to burn hemp. It can be processed to run in both diesel and automatic engines for cars, planes, trains, etc.
3. After harvest, the hemp plants can also be used for paper, wood, fabric and at least 50,000 other productive uses.
4. Since hemp is wind pollinated and not bee pollinated, it can step up as a food source to feed hungry populations, building peace on earth by reducing stress in individual lives.
We’ve made part of nature illegal, soiled her delicate balance, and wonder why we have a problem with the environment. How dare us tell nature what she can and can not grow. Actions have consequences, as do reactions.
“The first two steps in this process require your cooperation.”
Let’s take some positive actions and save ourselves. Here's a few recommendations from the book.
1. Legalize hemp, tax it at 20%. Use part of those funds to help people dealing with global warming, i.e. Hurricane Katrina victims. Use another part to finance hemp growing. Immediately make available 10-20% of un-used federal land for family farmers to grow hemp to scrub the air of excess CO2. The federal government owns about 650 million acres of land (not counting DOD) so a lot of unemployed workers could find jobs and start small businesses. Monitor the environment for maximum effectiveness.
2. Make available hemp and other alternative, clean, environmentally supportive energies like wind, solar, hydro and magnetic.
“The final one does not.”
Logic says if we reduce the cause, our part - the effect will naturally be reduced, if it's not too late already.

I support her courage and stand for truth. I don't understand how one of the greatest journalists ever, Barbara Walters, could not be demanding answers to the questions raised regarding 9/11.
Please incorporate into your speaking and being your own personal call to investigate the events of 9/11 and other acts of terror by George Bush's band of Nazis. His grandfather, Prescott Bush, was Hitler's US banker. This rabbit hole is deep and long, going back to Samuel Bush.
I pray that Rosie goes back to doing her own show. And this time I'll watch. If the networks don't touch it, the web will welcome it. Her show would be a VIEW OF THE TRUTH. How the world would heal if we would use the communications tools available to us to save ourselves, like using hemp to scrub the air of the excess greenhouse CO2 gas.
We also need to stop being played and demand truth and justice in government.
The system is killing us and we need to get a grip. Look around you.
Paying more is no security that toxic food is not on your dinner table.
Over the last century or so the government has legislated acceptable pollution levels - creating our poisoned environment.
By law, i.e. hemp, they created unnecessary stress in personal lives with countless WAR ON WHATEVER that was truly a war on the American people.
Drama was created to shift the art of healing from LOVE to money based. The doctors and nurses were forced to become business people first, rather than healers.
A flat out abomination is that the ill, many children and seniors are being left behind due to the illusion of unsecured funds.
Incorporate truth into media and government. It's healing.
Begin by supporting Rosie ODonnel in her call to Investigate 9/11. It was an inside job.

I saw no shooter in the window in the newly released footage. I'm open to the possibility I saw what I wanted to see.
JFK Assassination--George Jefferies Film is both posted above and broadcast on YouTube
On that piece is the picture of the School Book Depository
Time: 00:35 from beginning 00:05 from the end.
When the JFK assassination happened I remember my father saying 'it was a set up.' He said the same thing about Hoffa.
No wonder the photographer just put the film away. Those who have evidence against the government's story are in danger of immediate death, and there was a lot of death surrounding that case.
That School Book Depository footage, had it been released at the time, would have put the Warren Commission's single bullet theory to the truth razor of 'here's the picture, where's the shooter?'
We had all this drama about what happened to the bullet once it entered the car, but now we can add 'show us on the picture where the person is who made the shot United States Senator Arlen Specter (R - PA), author of the single bullet theory?
Please check it out. A flood of truth is better than a trickle. 9/11, war for oil, JFK&MLK&RFK assassinations , Iran Contra, etc., the flood of information cannot be stopped.
The 60's was back in the day when President of the United States meant something other than oppression and fear. JFK held within his palm the hope of a nation.
Now we must carry papers in America, turn our back on the nation's mission of accepting others in search of freedom, and continue to do the wrong thing, day, after day, after century.
Unless we change within ourselves now.
Like 9/11, it was just another drama to keep the industrial/military/congressional complex in place.
When folks simply demand only truth in our lives and affairs, we can figure out the best way to get along and heal the planet. Now would be a good time to do it. Let Divine Justice restore balance.
