What would you do if - SUPPORT OF FUNDS, FRIENDS AND FAMILY WERE NO ISSUE? DO THAT NOW!!!!!!

Want to find the path that Jesus, King, Gandhi, Eleanor R., Rosa Parks, God... all gave their lives to help you find?

1.  Meditate on this question for as many minutes, or hours as necessary to arrive at a deep, gut level, heart level answer:  What would you do if - SUPPORT OF FUNDS, FRIENDS AND FAMILY WERE NO ISSUE? 

2.  When you arrive at a strong get sense, BEGIN.  DO THAT NOW!!!!!!, or say goodby to Life, Love, Passion, Meaning, Worth to Humanity, Destiny, Calling, Fulfillment, God...; and say hello to emptiness, sadness, meaninglessness, harmfulness to others (you'll spread the disease), waste of life, joylessness, lifelessness... TRAGEDY.

This is the path to Life traveled by ALLLLLLL that have found It.  Can you think of any exceptions?  There are none.

If students are the hope of a sick society, what does that say of the non-students?

Those of us with even the slightest knowledge of social change in the last 70 years know the central role students play.  Right?

What does that say of we older folk - mid 20's an up?  Not good.  We are the obstacle to the young, counter to Life, Truth, Love.  This is NOT a function of age per se. It is a function of atrophy, and immersion time in the toxic bath of western cultural values, that we must shake off or God damn us for being an obstacle to the future, theirs AND OURS.

They are aLive.  We older tend to die, but that is not what God, that is not what our genes ordain. 

The indispensable intellect Ashley Montague said in the mid 1900's, in his book "Growing Young," and I paraphrase,  "I aspire to die as young as possible, as late in life as I possibly can."

****Students hold mother of all lobbying days

"Lobby days" are a Washington staple. But the one held Monday was unique both for its size and who participated.

More than 12,000 high school- and college-age students attended Power Shift '09, a four-day conference organized by the Energy Action Coalition (EAC), a consortium of environmentalist and progressive student groups, held at the D.C. Convention Center over the weekend.

StartL SLOWING DDDOOOWWWNNNNN

At long last I've done the right thing and returned a laptop I was borrowing.  Should have done it many months ago.  Was not right to keep it so long.
The impact?  I lose half my daily computer time because the time at the Peace Vigil, well, now that is out.  Yes, I can hear the cheering from some.  In any case that is the deal, so all of my 4 sites will suffer.  It is a funny God we have.  Or does something like this happen because we IGNORE that God?

POWER SHIFT 09. "And the children shall lead us." SL finds hope for the first time. As sliver.

StartL, JUST SAW YOU ON NEWS CHANNEL 8 - CLIMATE ACTION / MARCH / PLANT LOCK DOWN

START,

JUST SAW YOU ON NEWS CHANNEL 8, TWO MINUTES AGO :)

AND ACTRESS DARRYL HANNAH. ON THE COAL BURNING ISSUE!

WASHINGTON — More than 2,000 clean-energy activists converged at a coal-fired power plant on Capitol Hill on Monday for a protest they billed as the largest display of civil disobedience on the climate crisis in U.S. history.

Willing to be arrested for their cause, they encircled and blocked entrances to the plant, which powers the U.S. Capitol and House and Senate office buildings.

But this particular plant may be the least of the protesters' worries.

Less than a week before the rally, congressional leaders requested the plant's full conversion to natural gas. Organizers were taking credit.

"There are no gifts in this world," said Vermont author and environmentalist Bill McKibben told a cheering crowd. "There is only organizing and movements and people doing what it takes to make change happen and that's what we're doing."

Obama Ready for Battle With Budget Critics [He's a fool if he thinks we are going to join him. Right?]

http://voices.washingtonpost.com/44/2009/02/28/obama_ready_for_battle_with_bu.html?hpid=topnews
"I know these steps won't sit well with the special interests and lobbyists who are invested in the old way of doing business," Obama said. "And I know they're gearing up for a fight as we speak. My message to them is this: So am I."
