GWDF2 D14b Less pain today. WOOHOO!

Well, I can't hardly walk standing fully straight or normal speed, hurts stomach too much. 

But WOW, I'm nothing but grateful for feeling better than yesterday.  Nothing but grateful. The Creator sent in two angels to get me meds yesterday, out of the Blue, and maybe the meds helped; maybe it is just the natural cycle of whatever it is that's broken inside me.

But whatever.  I'm nothing but grateful, nothing but grateful that it doesn't hurt as much as yesterday.  So far, I can work through the pain I have, today. Thank Creator.

I'm continuing my diversion from Book 4 -  "Actionable Essentials 2 - Dr. Lester Brown's Words," and finishing Book 1 - "Global Warming's Death.  Fast,"  to absorb all I can learn from the DNC and RNC coverage and speeches.  In another day or so of that I expect to go full time on the books for maybe 2 weeks more, get them done, and spend every second I have left on the Zero Calorie, Global Warming's Death Fast, and phone work for Pr. Obama.

Except today, for about 4 hours, I'll visit with my best friend, the woman I was married to for 2 and a half decades.  She's coming to visit from Phila.  Miracle.

GWDF2 D14a Meds on the way. Kindness - So rare. Just received.

The city psychologist / homeless outreach... that has visited me before, stopped by this morning.  I've kept him copied on key posts regarding the death fast, and my work, these last few weeks since he and another visited.

My life these last 10 years, in the non-business world, has taught me the slow, relentless, consistent lesson that it is stunningly hard to tell who someone is.  I'm not lauding the business world, but it is a world of metrics way more than the world I've been in these last 10 years ago.  In the business world people are constantly, monthly, quarterly up against metrics, and something of them is reavealed in how they perform - something significant - enough so that a large portion of who they are can be discerned, to themselves, let alone to and by others.  This difficulty in discernment is rarely a matter of intended deceit.  It is a matter that knowing ourselves, let alone others, is a massively intense, complex, demanding, difficult effort which rarely we make, and which we rarely have help, or helpful information in.

What's that diversion all about Loving?  Maybe nothing.

In any case, what appeared to me to be genuine kindness, respect (as a fellow human being), concern... from this Homeless Outreach fellow, was deeply nice this morning.  We talked, well, I talked, he listened, for about 10-15 minutes.  He brought a potassium rich drink - 19% rda, woohoo.

It so happened that last night was night #2 of major pain attack - abdominal  http://jesusgodgoodetcnjay.blogspot.com/2012/09/gwdf2-d14b-pain-attacks-rob-last-night.html .  And it has continued throughout the day.  Pretty miserable and very debilitating.  In our brief dialog I related this to the kind man.  'Maybe I can get things straightened out for you regarding the insurance.'  It is through his help that I have Medicaid in the first place, and food stamps.  'I don't want you to suffer through the weekend.  Maybe I can help today.' I didn't think these were empty words, but I also had no expectations.

I just heard from him via email.  He worked with my kind doctor, they determined that the drug store didn't have my correct insurance information - and the drug store was so engaged in being nasty to me they never bothered to say so, twice - and doctor Cardile straightened it out today.

I've been quite ill since last night, in much pain, am fairly exhasted.  This was a really, really, really nice lift.

Thank you both.

GWDF2 D14b Pain attacks rob last night and today, thus far

Last night was the 2nd night of pain attacks, abdominal, since the one several weeks ago that wound up in hospitalization.  Damn!  And between the fatigue that yielded, and continuing pain through 3pm today I've been able to get almost no work done.

Except, spending an hour or so on Fact-check articles for DNC speeches of last night and the night before.  Maybe the pain is from that.  :-(  . Damn.  I trust Pr. Obama, and the DNC.  They are fighting for us.  But somewhere, some time, I need to be able to trust what folks say, as well.  Damn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GWDF2 D14a Re-electing Obama, saving America, 200 billion, my final days will be spent on this

There are two books I must finish:
1.  Actionable Essentials 2 - the words of Dr. Lester Brown.
2.  Updated Book 1 - Global Warming's Death. Fast.

This should take me 2 more weeks.  But what then?

Well, I've known that my major contribution then is to put the last measure of my devotion behind what I've written, lived, and spoken about averting Environmental Armageddon, standing on the shoulders of the world's most qualified Doctors - WWIII interrupted.  Well, ok, but that will take probably 4-8 weeks before I'm in an urn or force fed for my remaining years in an istitution.  Ok.

Last night and tonight I remembered, and re-discovered what I'll spend the rest of my time on; just what I devoted EVERYTHING to 4 years ago.  I've said and written what needs to be said and written on averting Environmental Armageddon.  Beginning in about weeks, dropping from 800 to zero calorie Death Fast, I'll do what I can to drive it toward people's hearts, until mine stops, or is destroyed by the status quo.

But some of the time, in early weeks anyway of the zero calorie part, I'll remain lucid.  There is much, much, much I planned to study.

But there is too much at stake - the future of America, and as goes America, so goes the world.

Soon, I'll get a cell phone funded for unlimited use for the next 2 months - and I'll be on the phone most every lucid moment working as a volunteer for DNC/BarackObama.com after the books are done, to Re-elect Pr. Obama, and keep Gordon Gecko out of the hen house.  With my last breath.

Oh, uh, no.  I haven't heard Pr. Obama tonight.  He hasn't yet spoken.  I've heard enough.  I know enough.

This is what I expect.

GWDF D14a Wiki- Self-Immolations since 1960 - US, WW

 Email note sent to several friends, followed by Post, below -


"Whoever makes extreme unviolent action impossible, makes violence, misery, mass torture..., and now, extinction of all life on earth, inevitable (Book 3: NASAs Dr. Hansen - for...everyday citizens)."  Loving, informed by John Adams, and JFK (JFK, or was it Bobby, like MLK Jr, was deeply changed, and motivated by the the Buddhist self-immolations in Vietnam).

That we may no longer have humans like MLK Jr., with enough humanity/sanity to be inspired, does not change the relative strength of such weapons, but Death Fast is the right weapon for today; and/or wave upon wave of ceaseless, until victory is won, hunger strikes, to death's door but not through, regroup, recover, restart... till we win.  By way of analogy, everything else is the equivalent of spit-balls against Iran's deep nuclear labs.  The Pentagon would break the rank of, and discharge any such mental and intellectual lunatics that suggested such spit-balls. 

But against environmental armageddon?  Against the most highly financed mercenary army in world history, the $20 to 70 trillion fossil fuel industry?  Spitballs have been the order of the day (blogging, writing (to inflame, not to empower, or to generate commensurate action); hopeless, token, time-killing legislative bull shit like the Cap and Trade treason of 2 years ago; 4 hour jailings (what a desecration of history's real unviolent actions and actors) for what, 15 or 30 years now? 

And such deluded, left-wing-nut Deniers of history of change, and personal duty, show every sign of continuing doing the same thing another 15 - 30 years (Einstein's definition of insanity; Loving's definition of Denial and Delusion, well, yes, insanity); even though it may be just 15 or 30 weeks, or months at the most, that the next 200 billion kids have left.  My God. 

No God could have mercy on our Souls for such cowardice, failure of imagination, failure of humanity, failure of Heart, failure of Loving.

And NO God can undo what we are in the last stages of finalizing - Hell on earth.

Only we can.

----- Post, below --------------

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_political_self-immolations 

I don't think that self-immolation is the right weapon for use in the US, or by me.  But we don't know what the right weapon is to defeat the WWIII, Terror War, Holocaust... being visited on the next 200 billion kids, either.  And, if there is anyone sane, or honest, we know that no one, maybe literally no one, is stepping up in any way that honestly, rationally, historically, psychologically... has a prayer of stopping our mass insanity of side-line sitting, blogging, talking, watching, talking, planning, talking, writing, planning, discussing... before all opportunity to save a future is gone, if indeed time still remains - Dr. Hansen (Book 3: NASAs Dr. Hansen - for...everyday citizens) - Someone(s) have got to give us a chance of beginning - SSSSSTTTTTTOOOOOPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!

Let it be me, but not by self-immolation, I expect.  Death Fast, or Death By Force Feeding in a mental ward for decades, not self-immolation, is the correct weapon for today, to begin a real, hopeful, meaningful, commensurate, historically rational... process of 'SSSSSSSSSTTTTTTTTTTTTOOOOOOOOOOPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!! In time.
