#### Accepting donations for the upcoming three thousand mile trip to Florida and back in the free Palestine solar bike car. As of today, so that the mission can take place, the money that I have for food for the next two months is 0. I'm fine with that, but the mission isn't going to last very long, I'm not going to exist very long, unless that changes. Not my job. My job is to undertake the mission. Yesterday and today it became clear that the trip requires investment in a $1,600 (installed) transmission, https://www.rohloff.de/en/products/speedhub/, an internally geared bike Hub,  literally the only Hub in the world robust enough* for the stress I put on this vehicle. The Standard hub has just broken for the sixth time. Although that Hub is under warranty it is just not feasible to undertake this first 3000 leg of the Nationwide tour coming up without a reliable gear system. The trip is going to happen,  and I'm going deep into debt now so that it does. How long it lasts, how long I last, depends on whether donations are forthcoming and/or the assistance I've requested prior, which has not materialized at all, in the form of individuals or organizations points South that want to provide a meal, a place for a sleeping bag that is safe, shelter from hurricanes literally... The Pay Pal is at Start underscore loving at yahoo.com. You should share this opportunity with anyone that you think wants to see the mission succeed. The mission is described here. http://jesusgodgoodetcnjay.blogspot.com/2016/08/your-help-needed-searching-for-life-in.html

* There's a remote chance that one other Hub could do the job, at roughly half the price, the Shimano alfine 11, and with the help of a highly-qualified very decent bike shop locally that too is being explored.

***** If our citizen cowardice and inaction, if our liberal Citizen inaction and cowardice, are not to blame for the world's problems then there is no hope because no one can set things right except for we American citizens, we liberal American citizens. To someone that is outraged that I would not send Obama to Louisiana until they stop denying climate change:  I'm an American, I live in America, I believe that America5 deserves and Americans  deserve need Untold misery for our criminal neglect and how we allow our government to trample people all around the world. That means that I would suffer for that to happen. I take responsibility for the actions of my government. The buck stops with me. In my book, and in the real world, the buck stops with we citizens. You need not feel the same. But that's how I feel and that's how I act..... and to a long time friend  who is horrified at my stance on this, I reject citizens blaming what is 99.99 9% of what we f****** liberals do. Oh, except ourselves, we never blame ourselves. I embrace total responsibility, personal responsibility, personal f****** citizen no excuse buck stops here responsibility. If you are only understanding that now about me, thank goodness you are understanding it now. I am happy to be rejected, I welcome being rejected,  unfriended,  whatever, by all who do not Embrace this. It is totally right and just that those who do not Embrace this would unfriend me. James

Throughout my entire adulthood I disallow myself the luxury of optimism, or pessimism. I demand of myself to enable my mission with reality as close as I can get to it and that tends to be extremely harsh, so harsh that few have learned how to deal with it. Any role I've played as transformational Catalyst throughout my adulthood has entirely relied on this willingness to face and bear harsh realities that virtually no one else will. Reality will assert itself. The sooner I can find it and face it the more time I have to change it. I refuse to sacrifice that advantage. I'll continue to the pay the price of increased isolation to do so.

My view is that Revolution is the only thing that can save us, anti violent, and that in Revolution the president is irrelevant, the Congress is irrelevant, the revolution prevails when the revolutionaries have become the relevant entity. It will not happen until more and more of us get past the illusion that the government will save us or that the government is the problem. Our cowardice, our inaction is the problem.

I see no hope. I have no hope. But I see needless suffering. So I fight on.

No offense friend. I say the following with all due respect. I think Albert Einstein was a great physicist. I don't care where he was born. It does not affect my respect for his abilities as a scientist. I don't care where he died or how he died. That has no impact on what I understand to be his great contribution as a man. Jesus was the most Divine embodiment of unconditional loving that I have yet seen. I don't care where he was born. I don't care who his mother was. I don't care where he died. I don't care where he went after he died. I care about what he showed us as a possibility for how to be, how to live, in this life. I don't know anyone that agrees with me. I do know people in history that have agreed with me. Jesus agreed with me. Martin Luther King jr. agreed with me. Gandhi agreed with me. Teresa of Calcutta agreed with me. Leo Tolstoy agreed with me. There have been a few others. But the masses totally disagree with me.
I also couldn't care less whether the Prophet Muhammad was transported from Medina or wherever. Anyway, that isn't true that I don't care. I am horrified that we care about these Fairytales instead of looking at the goodness that these men did and following their example. I hate that.

I am not interested in the fairy tales. I am interested in the man Jesus. To try and learn to be like he was. Gandhi was interested in that. So was Martin Luther King. A major source for them was Leo Tolstoy and his books, the gospel in brief, and, the kingdom of God is within you. I do found those very helpful. I find the words of Jesus in the Bible very helpful and informative. I find the works of the scholar Dominic crossan very helpful. Most of what so-called Christians find helpful I find abomination. Be well friend. James

"those with more intelligence and the capacity to use it… are less likely to spend so much time socializing because they are focused on some other longer term objective,” Carol Graham, who researches the economics of happiness for the Brookings Institute, told The Washington Post.

### Early September I depart possibly the day after my consult with my cancer doctor. And if she can't meet with me soon enough I'll just leave anyway. My current guess is soon as September 2nd.  In the meantime I'll be occupying the campuses in the Washington DC Region as folks return to college. I'll occupy with free Palestine Fusion Bikar.

###.  Shared with the Saint of a Dr., she who has beaten my cancer so far. A consistantly Divine presence in my life 6 years or more now:    Never once in my life have I done anything because Jesus said it or did it. I'm not proud of that nor ashamed. Somehow that's just not how I work.  I have to learn things on my own. The things I have always needed to know I can't learn with nearly the conviction I have to learn without doing it on my own, finding the tallest possible shoulders I can stand on of course, but ultimately learning it on my own. I am always profoundly informed by Jesus,  and others. I've been deeply informed by his words and example since my earliest memories. But I have never done anything because he said to or because he had done it. But when the spirit moves me in some unexpected important direction, it is rare that quickly Jesus words and or example don't come to mind in a way explaining what the spirit just moved me to do.

When out of the blue the spirit moved me to go on This 3000 MI fishing Expedition, http://jesusgodgoodetcnjay.blogspot.com/2016/08/your-help-needed-searching-for-life-in.htmlhttp://jesusgodgoodetcnjay.blogspot.com/2016/08/your-help-needed-searching-for-life-in.html the following came into my mind. 'I came to bring a fire and oh how I wish it was raging.'

That's exactly how I feel. I want that more than anything else. I'll pay any personal price for it. Even though I expect to totally fail, I will not fail to try.

Doc C, just this moment something else occurred to me, just this moment because of my encounter with you today, the following now also comes into my mind, you are to be Fishers of Men.

There, you've moved me once again to Great emotion. Your Divine presence.

If you knew that there is no heaven outside of this life ( it's true ) , and you knew you were going to die tomorrow, what would you be doing today? Why aren't you doing that???
