'Proper Parenting Goal: that the child never be ripped from Our Father's Kingdom, their Heart, the place of God (Good) within.' SL (more)

From a note to my Sister -

Affloholics - Affloholism is our national western Religion.  All else is just part of it, and/or enabling it.  Clinical addiction to stuff, superiority, powerful organizations.

Working in the  background for me for more than a dozen years, well, really for more than 30 years since my first bio-kid arrived, but in a new way since I placed myself as a counselor 12 years ago in one of the largest, neediest elementary schools in the country:  What do I want for these kids?  What do I want to for every kid?

The first time I had a clear answer I felt was getting really close, was this morning as I hiked to my 'office' (coffee shop) from my granite mattress at the Obama's. 

What I want for every kid is to Never be ripped from Our Father's Kingdom, the Heart within, and the place of God (Good) within which is in the same realm, but even higher.  If I had the strength, and wisdom, this would be my Overriding goal as a parent - #1.  The abortion that calls itself 'church' should be exactly for this goal, and instead it is the #1 enabler of forced removal of our kids from the Kingdom into the Hell of capitalistic c'ristianity.

All this to your point below of what we do to the materially rich, as well as to the poor in this country.  Victims all.  Affloholics all.

Curing affloholism, being the antidote, being the cure to affloholism on a mass scale, the only hope - becoming / building what Jesus would recognize as a church (NOT 'christian') the only potential cure, by whatever name.

The blindness we spoke of yesterday - affloholism, exactly the blindness, delusion, DENIAL of the alcoholic, only triggered differently.

Obama's Global Warming Plan: Band-Aids for Wildlife

'Pr. Obama, stand firm. I believe that the majority of the american people will stand with you...”



I'm sorry friend, what planet are you from? The one central miscalcula­tion Pr. Obama has made is that the US people would stand with him, ON ANYTHING. Wanna know what 'standing' looks like?



* Egypt a year ago;

* Civil Rights workers.

* THE TEA PARTY



Are you really blind to this, or do you simply lack the courage to face and write the truth? True 'Standing' is WHETHER OR NOT ANYONE ELSE DOES, INCLUDING THE PRESIDENT. Can you imagine Gandhi, King, those at their side appealing to the 'Leader,' President, whatever, in the way you are?



Pr. Obama is doing EVERYTHING possible given that it is clear that the US people, except the insane right-wing­-nuts, WON'T STAND FOR ANYTHING.



YOU get us to stand. Pr. Obama already is. His mark of stupidity is to not finally face how spineless we Lefties are, to throw the upcoming election, we're dead of our own cowardly denial already, and go off and enjoy the next 4 years with his magnificen­t family. He deserves it, and we deserve the implosion of everything worthwhile in the US, in Creation. ... We've earned that.



But our, eternity's children haven't earned that, so STOP POINTING AT OBAMA, AND POINT THE ONLY PLACE SALVATION CAN COME FROM, US, GET US TO STAND, OR at least risk everything in your attempt, as you ask Pr. Obama to do. sl

Obama's America: More Warren Buffett's Secretary Than Warren Buffett

Mr. Roy, 'culture editor,' ok. But if a 'culture editor' is going to write of something like 'leadershi­p' shouldn't they know what they are talking about? James Bond, a Leader? M, a Leader?



This is entertaini­ng friend, but profoundly ignorant on a topic of historic proportion­s. Gandhi was a Leader. FDR was a Leader. MLK Jr. was a Leader. Aung San Suu Kyi is a Leader. Wael Ghonim is a Leader. They, unlike you, would all agree, that Pr. Obama is the greatest Leader the world yet has seen.



Change your focus from 'Leader' to 'Thug,' 'Bully,' or the like, and your article works.

The sum total of donations I've received this last month is $10, that I recall.  I've not done the math, but I'll guess I received $10 per minute when I worked for over-privilege.

I do a lot with what I'm given.  Sitting on my granite bed in the 40 degree cold, as folks benign and threatening walked past, I watched, downloaded, parsed, and uploaded Pr. Obama's SOTU last night in 7 segments, and as of now about 15,000 viewings across all 7 segments.

I wonder how many, with infinitely more material resources than I, used them to similar impact during the same time.

We are really in trouble.  Affloholic Zombie Addicts.

'Assisi understood his call to be 'rebuilding' the Church.  That's what I, and All are called to. But NOT the Abortion - christianity' SL

SL here. This will seem harsh, but I'm sure it is not -

I continue to fail those brought the closest to me.  I'm sorry.  What I'm referring to is my so-far,  uncontrolled tendency to 'broadcast,' to SHOUT those revelations that are Given to me (emails, email, emails....) Over and over through the last decade I've struggled with this failing, made a little progress, but I continue to revert, too much.  I'm sorry. 

My point is, I'll continue to try, and probably make some progress.

The way YOU may experience that progress is by the withdrawal of my responsiveness to you.  If this occurs, it will be as an intended Service to you, as your Brother, my Duty, the Duty of Love. 

Here's the bottom line - What I'm CERTAIN I'm called to do is to share all that I'm Given at the blog below.  Any of you that choose to not subscribe, or to not follow, consume the Daily Summary:
A. Will always be my brother or sister, that is, I will be yours!
B.  But I promise to reduce my tendency to enable your Neglect, by withdrawing my responsiveness to you.

As Good (God) is my witness there is zero veiled in this note to you. NO, I do  not Judge that you Should follow along.  But I must Respect that if you do not, that is a significant indication I have little to offer You, and respect that, and if it is a poor decision on your part, to not enable you by my over-compensation, that has been my failing too, too, too, too... often.

But no, neither can I promise you that I'll not continue to fail you in this too often. But I know I'll try harder.
