Hey, I know! Rather than stopping the slaughter of children in Palestine, and Yemen, so much trouble, let's go vegan, and save pets from flooding. So much easier.

I thought I was done voting. I fight in other ways. But it just occurs to me that I can't take the chance that young folks won't stand up. And I wouldn't know until too late.

$2,000 from someone I've never met when the mission was dead without it a year ago on the West Coast. A months lodging and technical assistance in North Carolina at the beginning of the voyage when the electrical system melted and needed a complete rebuild. Roadside help and then Weeks Later lodging south of Lansing Michigan. There are people dear in my life that have made relatively huge contributions that enable this mission to continue. But absolute strangers I just mentioned. And at least half of those are Trump supporters. And obviously I am not. Obviously my values would be considered liberal but that's not correct. My values are also deeply conservative, loyalty, dependability, hard work, personal responsibility. But everyone on the outside would conclude liberal and yet huge support from those I don't know have come at least half and maybe more from Trump supporters. There is no goodness that is reachable in Trump and his inner circle. They are all crime family. Totally lost. But the same is true of all but one or two Democrats in Washington DC that gladly all but hold the gun shooting Palestinian children in the head or burning them was white phosphorus funded by us and manufactured in US. But the further one gets away from the cities the population goes from practically zero to not quite zero that there is still some element of soul that can be tapped. James

And then this huge shiny black pickup truck just swerved so he could come within inches of me blaring its horn as it got next to me trying to scare the s*** out of me. They failed. Just revealing their sickness. What is dying to me? LOL. Absolute certainty it's a trump supporter. They are so hurting, so cowardly, so lost, so fearful, but they lash out and everything. Totally understandable. Horrible. And the trucker is that are universally showing such reverence and care for this vehicle as they give wide berth in passing are mostly all Trump supporters as well. Such troubled times.

Regarding miracles. In a video log three days ago or so were searching for, this was discussed by me and a friend in crisis found it hugely helpful. That doesn't mean either of us are correct but my life experience has depended upon working miracles which occasionally have been catalyzed by me. The video observes there that sometimes miracles happen, sometimes, after and only after we have given all that we have to give and are about to break, not stop, but break and we will not stop. Sometimes, rarely, Creator, whatever that is seems to find that so irritating that it pays attention and maybe gives a little nudge and sometimes that's what's needed. The idea that there is some little man behind the curtain that pushes buttons is horrible to me. It trivializes everything. It makes a mockery of all truth. But something does happen sometimes. It has just occurred to me based on reflecting on many many decades of experience, is that what sometimes happens is the extraordinary effort, offering or paying of price extraordinary, by the individual and sometimes the group, breaks through the noise of our systems. Our cultural systems, our psychological systems, our systems of government or medical care or whatever it might be. There is all sorts of noise there, a technical systems term. And sometimes the impossible effort against impossible odds is able to raise the situation above that noise and energies get focused and the impossible becomes possible.  Even above the Noise Within oneself, and the Noise Within the people around who could otherwise be mobilized in an important way, even Within  the subject needing help if that's the case.  It causes an energy Transcendence  that enables the healing powers of nature, the wisdom of nature,  a Transcendent Focus to come to bear. And something else too. It raises the one attempting the miracle to a level of intimate interaction with the necessary forces that enable and inform performance that otherwise would be impossible. Rarely, but that's how it works.

The purpose of the American government is to convince and or coerce the citizens of America to demand an absolute minimum for themselves and to gladly sacrifice their lives and even die heroically in the service of the financial and intellectual Elites. A necessary component of this of course is the so-called middle-class who serve as a passive aggressive buffer against the less financially advantaged masses in service of the corporate Masters. If you disagree please tell me the facts contrary to what I've just described, the broad facts not isolated.

A gentleman on Facebook messaged me saying extremely positive and affirming things about what I post on Facebook and how I am trying to be in the world. Clearly it came from deep in his heart. He expressed a hope that we could enter into a correspondence that might help with some work that he is doing. This was my reply: Friend, a few others that it seems like you have seen some value in what I have found and the path that I walk, I have pretty universally failed and I think in large part it's because I tried to make it easier than it can be to learn what I have learned. So I am going to attempt to avoid making the same mistake with you. If at such point you were to spend, or anyone like you, where to spend hours, many hours at my blog which tends to be posts that are most about my path and less about politics, at the point that someone like you had spent hours and hours and still felt the need for us to speak informed by what you had read then I would be extremely glad for that dialogue. I'm no Einstein but my every breath is to try and understand things much more important than Einstein was devoted to and I think I've made progress. What disrespect for the process Einstein would show if when someone approached him with interest he did not insist that they first read his works and try deeply to understand them before engaging in personal dialogue? Three sites actually. Jesusgodgoodetcnjay.blogspot.com, http://www.lsgiabeing.com, and https://m.facebook.com/BeingChristlikeness/ Hugs

"Dear James, Thank you for reminding us what being a human being looks like. I send blessings your way. D..." was the note on a substantial PayPal donation last night from a Facebook friend that I think I have never met in person and rarely correspond with. I was so moved, I am so moved, at such words, such trust, such affirmation, such faith. It was difficult to sleep all night trying to digest such a thought. I pray I am worthy of such words, it's all I have hope in, it's all I try to be.

In two weeks the vehicle should be up to the task of these mountains finally, and in 6 months finally out of red ink, thanks to for donations in the last 2 weeks. This update was just sent to the very largest of the donors explaining..... Hers, hers JH'S and YOURS donations are more timely and important than you know. The stresses on the vehicle continue and the evidence piles up that it is finally up to the stresses in part thanks to you. But there remain two substantial expenditures which thanks to you, one of my two dearest friends from Standing Rock, an unmet Facebook sister, and JH who donates $100 every month, met him on that March from Philadelphia to Washington DC, two major expenditures remain which we'll be able to make with huge credit card debt which will remain for six months but we can now sustain that. And if the vehicle is as stable as I think we're finally out of the woods and have all the capability that the environment requires. Every once in awhile a 13 or 14 percent climb pops up out of nowhere. A week ago the only place for 50 miles where we could park for the night was the Snoqualmie Casino. Beautiful, in the foothill mountains, and the huge parking lot required going down and then back up a probably 13 or 14 percent grade. We just barely made it. Any steeper and we were stuck, and way too much stress on the solar vehicle. And although it's a bit technical after excruciating failures, very expensive 6 months ago, regenerative braking is now possible and it is immensely important. But it is only semi permanent and still has risk to it that it could fail. In about a week I'll be back down on the Columbia River I expect where there are two extremely able machine shops that I've encountered. And with the donations of you four there should be the funds to really make this a permanent fixture. And with the stronger motor and the regenerative braking with the days getting so much shorter the new motor should substantially increase the amount of electricity we can put back in the battery going down these mountains. There, that's probably more than you wanted to know.

The goal is to arrive Vancouver on the 21st, with no assumption that Customs will let me out of the country. Tomorrow is 50 miles plan, to a casino parking lot that it seems might allow one to stop for the night in the parking lot. Two-thirds of the way is a UPS Store where the passport hopefully will arrive and bike shop where a spare tire and some tubes can be purchased. And a failing bearing addressed. This body and soul is very very tired in recent days. Combination of tremendous physical exertion and huge distress at the ascendant evil in the world. Travel today was fairly light, much downhill. Several hours this afternoon were spent on maintaining worn tires and other issues. Hopefully this forest service road will be okay for the night and it is the plan to stay here and leave early tomorrow morning hopefully to beat some of whatever morning traffic there may be. Although the Outlook is sunny for the coming week the power of the sun is cut by probably a third with all the smoke in the air from the Miriam fire. Travel each day will require about 50 miles which is a bit longer than desired but in this area of extreme evil inequality the rich folks don't much take to anyone that does not own their own secluded property. And the non Rich locals are understandably outraged at the influx of people to their area pushing them to the margins. research has gone into trying to identify places where stopping for the night will be okay and unless the information is faulty if we are able to travel about 50 miles a day it should work. The plan remains to travel south from Vancouver once the work there is done along the coast. But this has not been planned in any detail and there is Verizon signal in this area so hopefully tonight some of that planning will begin.
