Regarding Obama:  For 6 years I would gladly have taken a bullet to save his life. Now I don't know that I would try and stop his bleeding. Palestine, TPP, backing Hillary, drone assassinations/murders on steroids, night raids on South American immigrants, persecution of Snowden and other heroic whistle blowers, Syrian and Yemen mass murder, increasing armaments to Israel, increasing armaments to Saudi Arabia and Egypt.....

***** There came a time when if ever there had been the opportunity to save the Titanic, the time for that opportunity had objectively past. The task at hand is not to stop global warming. Yes, we have everything that we need to do so except for the one indispensable ingredient: enough sane, Loving, human beings to sacrifice their lives to do so. Other than that Mrs Lincoln, how was the play. So what remains is two things and they are related: to minimize the suffering of the survivors in this and succeeding generations, and to live as a human being should live regardless of the fact that the Titanic won't be saved. In doing this the greatest Spiritual, emotional, mercy is delivered, not only to oneself, but to any of the temporary survivors that see the example and embrace it for themselves.

Materially rich folks want their world, their city, their town, their block... to be without poor folks. I want my world, and certainly my city, my town, my block.... to be without rich folks, or certainly with very few, if they behave themselves.

Those of us who are at all enlightened know reflexively, and somewhat practice, that in a personal relationship there is one thing, and one thing only that we can change, me, myself, ourself. We know almost instinctively and reflexively because we have heard it so often, that we cannot, cannot, cannot, change anyone else to achieve the change we want to see in that personal relationship. We can only change our self. But the left, the best intended, the most informed, rarely if ever carry that understanding into an arena where it is not a one on one personal relationship, but probably a situation involving many many many many people. But nothing changes with respect to the fact that the only thing that one can change is one self. I think my moment by moment reaction to the evils, the atrocities, that I spend all day studying around the world, first and foremost in Palestine, one way or another this is my reaction time and time and time again. I am horrified at the otherwise well-intended people that work to make President Obama change, the Republicans change, the deprived and frightened white people in this country change, Netanyahu change, the UN, the oil industry...change. They look to change anyone and everyone except the only person that they are in a position to change, themselves, and of course, that is the last person in the world that they intend to change.

***** Our nervous system is designed to be capable of different ways of being. These are all encompassing like operating systems, operating environments. They take constant work to build and maintain and therefore it is virtually impossible to maintain more than one or to switch from one to another. The notion of paradigm comes into play here. My early life experiences caused me to build the paradigm of oneness with creation, by whatever name, or no name at all. Not one in a million in our culture is caused to create this paradigm; rather most are discouraged from doing so by the extreme punishments for doing so. I was and AM, no credit to me, some combination of unable, and profoundly morally unwilling, to create and employ the paradigm of Group, nation, me.

Without exaggeration white so called Christians of European origin have been breathtakingly brilliant, excellent, perfect at locating, defiling, corrupting and destroying the most godly cultures that the earth has ever seen, the American Indigenous, the African indigenous, and now the indigenous in Palestine and elsewhere in the Middle East and North Africa. If there is a Satan we are it. We are it.

***** "No", I said. "I am NOT good. I am profoundly selfish. I simply know that it is me that US Israel is executing, massacring, murdering. It is my rights. It is my rule of law. It is my children. It is my body. It is me." Almost everyone around me here in Washington DC, here in the United States, we the authors of this Holocaust, almost all of us are blind to the truth, that it is we that are being murdered. Blind, as I was for most of my decades. But I'm less blind now. This I said to a young teacher on Sunday who was aghast at my committed Palestine activism. I am at all out war in resistance to the war being waged on me, in Palestine, by US Israel.

By no stretch of the imagination did Obama save America. He may have turned the Titanic a tiny bit. He may have slowed the Titanic a tiny bit. Would anyone in history have done a better job? I can't think of anyone, particularly if their skin was turned black before they took office in 2008. Was he ever the well intended man I thought he was? I don't know anymore. I don't know if I ever will. My best theory is that there is a small circle that controls the government machine. They keep themselves hidden until the President is elected. And then they reveal themselves and literally scare the s*** out of him. I can't see any other way to explain Obama.  http://jesusgodgoodetcnjay.blogspot.com/2016/02/james-sanders-supporters-are-fraud-if.html

***** James: The Sanders supporters are a fraud, if, as we did in 2008 and again in 2012, go home after the elections as though anything significant has been won. Chris Hedges: the Democratic Party is the old Republican Party rebranded. The Sanders campaign is a fraud, and can lead to nothing but disappointment. Hedges is sadly, correct, if he is telling us that the entire Democratic machine is against us before, during, and forever after any given election. Their loyalty is to the corporate fascist status quo. Chris Hedges, our consummate, our ultimate intellectual today. A disturbing article. Maybe it is just a cry for attention by Chris. Maybe it is a poorly worded attempt to wake us up. Maybe he is attempting to give Sanders an opportunity to step things up. Maybe he is right.

Hillary is a bureaucrat, NOT a leader.  You know the difference, correct? She couldn't, she WOULDN'T, lead a group of preschoolers out of a burning building.  She would create policies , organize committees, phone political cronies,  pontificate to the press, blame others, raise election funds and make excuses why the children can't be saved, instead. All the while believing herself to be a great leader, and  deep inside knowing she is a total fraud, and terrified that others will see the truth, too.

***** Must must read!!! War Is Realizing the Israelizing of the World

http://original.antiwar.com/dan_sanchez/2015/12/21/war-is-realizing-the-israelizing-of-the-world/

To my shock......

To my shock I may accept the apartment that is available to me. It is a very difficult decision for me, but I have done great due diligence and if it holds that with the apartment I can serve not only me but at least regularly a dear friend with special needs, and possibly the occasional zero risk zero maintenance homeless person or true activist, then as early as the end of this week I may commit to a one year lease. I also feel, if it holds that in all likelihood I can help others directly with this apartment, then I also perceive that my second issue which is homelessness, poverty, gentrification, can be better advocated for by me if I am a person with an apartment, a normal resident of the city who was long homeless himself, as opposed to continuing as a homeless person. This is not a decision about which I am happy, or unhappy. My only desire in life is to be as helpful to the neediest with each breath, with each penny, as I possibly can be. And what I have just outlined appears to be how things are sorting out.

The thought of spending hundreds of dollars a month on me that I have not been spending is sheer agony for me. I need billions billions of dollars, quite literally, for my human family that is suffering so badly. Now with few exceptions I eat for free. One hot meal per day that I turn into two meals per day, a small supper and a cold larger meal in the afternoon. And I spend about $4 a day on coffee or an orange or a banana in some combination to morally justify using a restroom in a restaurant while I am on all day post in the free Palestine vigil at various strategic locations around Washington DC 7 days per week. Thus I am free so far to joy fully donate every penny to those who serve the needy and Palestine, those who work productively for human rights for Palestine, in support of Syrian refugees, Doctors Without Borders, etc. I am horrified by the idea of diverting even a penny from those.

If I accept the apartment it will be entirely unfurnished, literally, but for a mattress on the floor, and possibly a small refrigerator. I intend to harness the excess electricity I generate with this vehicle from the Sun for most or all of my indoor energy needs by carrying a battery to and fro. I envision beans and rice as my staple meal which is not too much different than what I have gotten in the shelter, and at sometimes I will eat at the homeless food truck and make monthly donations to the operator of that truck so that I am NOT a burden on them. So then I also minimize costs. 

if this transpires, and there are a few big if's which have to do with whether or not I'll be allowed to have frequent guests, if this transpires I anticipate very substantially ramping up my advocacy for the poor, homeless, disenfranchised here in Washington. I have no illusion I'll be able to make any significant difference. But if the apartment materializes then I feel myself moving substantially to add that advocacy alongside the advocacy for Palestine. I'm not certain why within me having the apartment is so strongly linked with that move, but I feel that it is.




The degree to which we don't live out the love inside of us is the degree to which we truly suffer. And there are those who have shown us that, the truth is, there is no price too great to pay to love fully. I experience my recent decades has learning to follow their example. It is heaven. It looks like hell, but it is heaven. Those lifestyles that look like heaven, are hell.
