Day 245: House of Cards

It’s been a rough couple of weeks for me physically as I’ve been continuing my alternative treatment plan for cancer. With not feeling very well I’m hesitant to admit that I’ve been watching a little bit of television, and after having researched the topic, have become somewhat educated about how our political/money system operates.

So, it’s interesting, how the facts about how our world exists are everywhere to be understood if only we’ll use what is here and educate ourselves further and then, change it to serve us with a solution that will be Best for All – instead of accepting and allowing the rules of the Elite to Enslave us.
house of cards
The particular television show that I’ll be referring to is called ‘House of Cards‘. The show centers around Francis Underwood who is basically a Majority Whip who has his hands in/on every secret in politics, and, is willing to betray anyone and everyone in his attempt to become President.  Now obviously this is a television series however, research for yourself to see how accurate the moves within it are.

Alright so, if you don’t know, here’s the definition of a Majority Whip:

“an official in a political party whose primary purpose is to ensure party discipline in a legislature. Whips are a party’s “enforcers”, who typically offer inducements and threaten punishments for party members to ensure that they vote according to the official party policy. A whip’s role is also to ensure that the elected representatives of their party are in attendance when important votes are taken. The usage comes from the hunting term “whipping in”, i.e. preventing hounds from wandering away from the pack.” ~ Wikipedia

‘Party discipline’ is also important to understand

“Party discipline is the ability of a parliamentary group of a political party to get its members to support the policies of their party leadership. In liberal democracies, it usually refers to the control that party leaders have over their caucus members in the legislature. Party discipline is important for all systems of government that allow parties to hold political power because it determines the degree to which the governmental infrastructure will be affected by legitimate political processes.” ~Wikipedia

So, how does one get it’s members to support certain policies and how is ‘party discipline’ enforced? With Money.  Money is what gives one the Power. Now, the Lobbyist plays a key role in how the Power roles shift and are Inflated with Money and are backed by Major Corporations/ Elite who are the only ones who have the money it takes to enforce such ‘party discipline’.

What industries spend the most Money on Lobbying?

The following data was recorded by the Senate Office of Public Records. The top 10 industries for 2009 were:

Pharmaceuticals/Health Products – $199,323,702

Insurance – $122,065,251

Oil & Gas – $120,669,855

Electric Utilities – $108,163,536

Business Associations – $92,696,817

Computers/Internet – $88,847,937

Misc Manufacturing & Distributing – $84,363,782

TV/Movies/Music – $77,861,927

Hospitals/Nursing Homes – $77,465,842

Education – $73,913,389

“If you’re good at this game, you’ve provided your congressional quarterback with everything under the sun—including fundraisers, golf outings, travel, meals, and premium event tickets. Now you’re on your way. The American people may not know the details of what you just did, but they kind of suspect it’s happening and they hate it. And they should hate it, since it’s killing our country. Unfortunately, until we can change this system, that’s how the sausage is made.” ~Former Lobbyist Jack Abramoff

Yes, that’s how the sausage is made, it’s made of Money, a lot of Money and Deceit. It’s what keeps things as they are, where the majority continue to support the rich to become richer and most of us, we aren’t even educated enough to BEGIN to understand the basics of how this current money/political system operates. The fact is there will be no real Education reform because there is no profit to be made in that.

In fact, look again at the above numbers for proof that less and less is spent on Education reform and how what’s important and profitable is the Pharmaceutical/Drug Industry. All the while more than half of the federal prisoners incarcerated in 2010 were for drug crimes according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics.

Who of us has the Money to get a Bill to pass Congress anyway?  Only the Rich.

“I’m talking about giving a gift to somebody who makes a decision on behalf of the public. At the end of the day, that’s really what bribery is. But it is done everyday and it is still being done. The truth is there were very few members who I could even name or could think of who didn’t at some level participate in that.” ~ Former Lobbyist Jack Abramoff

That’s what it comes down to. This is how Countries are Governed. This is how Poverty exists and this is how the Systems that Govern our World operate and strangely enough, we’re OK with that.

I won’t pretend to know or understand every detail because I’m still Educating myself about how and why our current World/Money/Systems exists as they do.  However, what I do understand is that at some level,  we All realize that everything is Not OK.  How most of us are so busy trying to survive that we’ve failed to see that we’re not even aware of what we’re accepting and allowing.

There’s no time for blame and if we’re not even willing to see the facts – even as they’re presented to us even through the television shows we watch daily- if we’re not willing to change that which is enslaving us by our own hands, then folks, we’re in serious trouble. So much so that one can see how we bicker, compete and fight with each other, instead of coming together to bring about a Real Solution,  to bring an End to our own enslavement.

Our current world systems are run and operated by crooks who have all the money and it’s us,  the slaves who give them their power.   It’s Enough.

It’s simple. Educate yourself about the Living Income Guaranteed proposal.

If we’ve got the time to sit in front of the television,  then we better make time to study that which will set us free for real.

“People look at politicians and celebrities on the TV and the newspapers, glossy magazines – what do they see? “I’m just like them.” That’s what they say. “I’m special. I’m different. I could be any one of them.” Well guess what, you can’t. You know why? Cause in reality, mediocrity is where most people live. Mediocrity is the elephant in the room. It’s ubiquitous. Mediocrity in your schools. It’s in your dreams. It’s in your family. And those of us who know this – those of us who understand the disease of the dull – we do something about it. We do more because we have to. The deck was always stacked against us. You’re either a big leaguer, or you’re a slave clawing your way onto the “C” train.” ~ Former Lobbyist Jack Abramoff

Day 165: On the take

The point I’m seeing within myself and am applying self-forgiveness for is manipulation and the extent that I have seen that I will go in how I have manipulated myself and others in my attempt at surviving within our current world/money system.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to be ‘on the take’, where I’ve lived my life always seeking to take from what is here yet never willing to give unconditionally to all that which I believed I had the right to take.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to bombard myself with secret fears of giving in to the desires of my mind thus ‘taking from’ that which gives me life as who I am as my physical body.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that when I am on the take I am willing to use, abuse and manipulate to get what I want when I want it.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that when I’m on the take I will tell you what you want to hear to try and make you trust me and then I will swoop in and thank you for giving me that which you swore you would never let go of because that’s how evil lives.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that when I’m on the take I have one goal in mind and that is that I am always looking for ways to make money and I won’t care who has to go without in order for me to reach my goal.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize how when I am on the take I am accepting and allowing myself to be used up within a world/money system that plays us against each other and yet we don’t realizes the odds are always in favor of the world/money system as the win.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to have spent my life always feeling like I had to look out for me and if that meant that I had to take from others then so be it, and within that not realizing that I was never actually living because I was constantly paying for the service of being able to live.

When and as I see myself thinking about ways to take from others instead of giving – I stop, I breathe. I see, realize and understand that it is vital that I direct me as my mind instead of my mind directing me. Thus, I commit myself to stop existing in self-interest and greed and stop manipulating others and to instead ground myself here standing in support of a world according to what’s best for all.

I commit myself to facing who I am as the role that I play within our current world/money system.

I commit myself to slow myself down and stop allowing myself to rush through my life as I see, realize and understand that in my rushing I have been abusing myself and others as myself.

I commit myself to not give up on myself as I continue walking this process because I see, realize and understand how I have been manipulating myself in how I’ve been participating in thoughts of fear and frustration according to some recent pain and changes within and as my physical body.

Day 117: The Right to Die

Tears of desperate locked-in syndrome sufferer Tony Nicklinson as High Court rules he CAN’T ask a doctor to end his life – –

The above article is about a 58-year-old father of two who is mentally sound but paralyzed from the neck down and unable to speak. For two years he’s been battling to persuade three judges of the High Court to rule that if and when he decides he wants to die, that doctors will be immune from prosecution if they help him to do so. Recently, he lost in his war for ‘the right’ to end his life.

His wife said her husband was ‘absolutely heartbroken’ because he’s been condemned by the law to ‘a life of increasing indignity and misery’.

It’s a strange thing to read, that someone is ‘fighting’ the laws of our current world/money system for the right to end one’s life so that they won’t have to suffer a life of ‘indignity and misery’. Because obviously, the laws of our current world/money system have already denied ‘the right for All to be able to live a life in dignity’ – where 30,000 plus children die a miserable death every single day from starvation.

Who the hell cares about their indignity and misery? They’re starving to death! They don’t have the luxury of a two year court battle to survive life.

There is something here we had better grasp – that how we experience ourselves within our world, is by our own creation as consciousness, which we agree to and manifest within our world accordingly.

Like it or not – we’re All responsible for how every single one of us experience life, whether that be through the suffering/misery resulting from having a stroke or the daily shocking statistics of 30,000 + children starving to death.

If there’s misery, pain, suffering, anguish and suppression amongst us, where one wishes they would die but are unable to – that is what it is as a direct result of our current world/money system. It’s time for us to realize that ALL challenges we face are according to what I / WE have accepted and allowed ourselves to be and become.

The Question is – what have we accepted and allowed ourselves to become?

For Life on Earth to actually change – where No one suffers and every single life is given equal support and assistance according to individual needs – that require us to stop who we are in/as self-interest, ego and greed.

In order to provide effective life support according to what’s best for self, requires a system where we come together as a group, to take self-responsibility and support a world/money system according to what’s best for All.

There is ONLY ONE solution where peaceful change is possible, that is through an Equal Money System.

I commit myself to comprehend completely for myself to thus show how one cannot escape facing/forgiving self – because even in death self must take self-responsibility for Self as Life as All in All ways Equally.

I commit myself to Never stop supporting an Equal Money System which will provide All living beings with The Right to Experience LIFE in DIGNITY.

I commit myself to show how an Equal Money System will allow each one of us the ability to clarify and redefine ourselves through self-directed choices of/as self-responsibility for and as All Living beings.

I commit myself to show how with an Equal Money System, the Right of Life will give each individual being the right to exist in dignity in/as Heaven on Earth – where fighting to live and die will not be a battle nor even a QUESTion within the minds of men.

I commit myself to show how life within an Equal Money System will replace struggling to survive to that of Harmony Amongst Neighbors.

I commit myself to Life in Equality as Heaven on Earth wherein ego, greed and self-interest become obsolete as expressions.

I commit myself to Life in Equality as Heaven on Earth where Equal Money will pave the way for Peace and a Dignified Life for All.

Day 114: Know Thyself

Eating egg yolks is as ‘bad as smoking’ in speeding up coronary heart disease – –

I used to believe whatever nonsense someone threw my way before I began walking the Journey to Life in writing and applying self-forgiveness, wherein I’ve realized that, hey, I can take self-responsibility for myself and for my world as myself and make decisions based upon what I have investigated and lived as, and how what’s best for me is according to what’s best for All.

It’s time we ask ourselves why is it that we wait around for somebody to tell us what to eat, what to believe in, how to behave, and what is best for who we are as our physical body.

So yes, I’ve come to realize that what is written in the above article, is simply Not a fact. I have been lowering my cholesterol for the past 6 months, and in doing so, I’ve been eating eggs at least 5 days out of every week. If you look at people who have normal cholesterol, you’ll find that it’s Not cholesterol that clogs arteries – it’s foods high in saturated and hydrogenated fats, and all that ‘white’ stuff, such as flour and sugar that leads to our demise.

An egg contains only two grams of saturated fat and 75 calories versus seven grams of saturated fat and 268 calories one will find in a small 3 1/2 ounce hamburger patty. Eggs actually qualify as “low in saturated fat”.

A point here to realize is, that if one’s cholesterol is high, then clearly it’s time to change one’s eating habits and lifestyle. Thus, take self-responsibility and investigate for self what is best for ones physical body, and make adjustments accordingly. Common sense is key and is something we as humanity are certainly lacking in.

If we want more nutritious eggs, then we better investigate what the hens are being fed. Did you know that hens that are fed on barnyard plant food produce eggs that are lower in cholesterol than commercially fed caged hens?

I mean, we allow hormones, antibiotics and pesticides to be injected in almost every food item we purchase! So is it really a surprise that more and more humans are becoming downright fat and sick? No, it isn’t. At this point, the egg yolk – is the least of our concerns.

We are knee deep in bullshit and there is not one single person to blame because we are All accepting and allowing ourselves to be contained and enslaved within it.

Stop buying into what those who have all the money want you to believe. Investigate the Solution that will give each and every one of us that which has Never existed within this world. A Life of Dignity as Heaven on Earth with Equal Money.

*On the trail of the land grabbers: The British imperialists snapping up swathes of Africa to cash in on the world’s food shortage – and forcing out small farmers – –

I forgive myself for not realizing the extent that human behaviour can be bought and sold all in the name of progress.

I forgive myself for not realizing that I can be paid to believe that which I believe and still not realize my knowledge has been bought and paid for in the name of progress.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that through land grabbers seeking profit over life the soil of our earth is dying and we call it making progress.

I forgive myself for not realizing how through continuing to support our current world/money system all biodiversity of our forest’s is being destroyed and we refer to that as making progress.

I forgive myself for not realizing how we’re destroying our communities through expelling people from their land in the hopes of striking it rich from large scale farm producers who offer big dreams/money to those who aren’t able to resist the promise/money that we’re making ‘progress’.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to not realize that when someone references the amount of progress we’re making – what they’re really referring to is the amount of money they’re hoping to make.

I forgive myself for not realizing that in the name of progress is the nature of myself in becoming the fear of being inconvenienced.

I forgive myself for not realizing that ‘in the name of progress, aka ‘money’, we will accept and allow that which results in destruction and misery to ourselves and the land of our earth/water/air.

I forgive myself for not realizing the harmful repercussions that are felt painfully by native communities and small scale farmers who are forced/bribed to leave their land whether through selling and/or through thugs and threats which replace checkbooks as negotiation tools – when the selling of one’s land is refused.

I forgive myself for not realizing that farmers need practical support not small lump sums of money as bribery and/or eviction notices.

I forgive myself for not realizing how in my want, want, want, I’ve failed to see, realize and understand what the growing and producing of the foods I want to eat are the results of/and what other’s are loosing in the process of in the name of making progress.

I forgive myself for not realizing the amount of chemicals in the foods I’m eating because as long as the food looks good and tastes good, then I’ve not cared to question what goes into producing it – in the name of progress.

I forgive myself for not realizing that the industrialized food system IS unsustainable and can’t go on this way because mono-cultures are in-fact very dangerous in that a large number of the same species are being grown together without variation – which is actually unheard of in nature, because nature doesn’t have mono-cultures.

I forgive myself that I haven’t seen, realized and understood that when we grow to much of the same thing, we end up with to many pests of that same thing all in the name of progress.

I forgive myself for not realizing that the only reason we are able to grow the exact same species of the same animal in close confinement is because we are using antibiotics to keep them alive – in the name of progress.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed a system where we’ve taken the livestock, the animals, off of the farms and put them in factories/mono-cultures – where in order to keep them healthy, their waste is full of hormones, antibiotics and pesticides, thus, we create pollution problems where there wasn’t one.

I forgive myself for not realizing that mono-cultures of corn, soy, rice and cotton have the same issue, where it takes an immense amount of fertilizer and pesticides to keep the crops healthy, in the name of progress.

I forgive myself for Not realizing that the chemicals and technology that conventional agriculture uses is aimed at eliminating risks so they can produce the most efficiently (make the most money), no matter the fact that it’s not good for our environment, the farmers, our rural communities, or the consumers, yet, we continue to accept and allow the growth of conventional agriculture in the name of progress.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed a world/money system that is so hell bent on productivity and profit that we are depleting life sustaining nutrients from our entire ecosystem, our soil, water, air and society as a whole and then we actually believe we’re making progress.

I forgive myself that I’ve not realized that when we keep animals on farms their manure is a blessing in that we can use it to replenish the soil by closing the nutrient cycle because animals eat crop wastes – the parts of the plant we don’t eat and/or sell – so, farm animals produce fertility for other crops – the animals feed the plants and the plants feed the animals and life progresses as a system of life supporting life.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed a world/money system that has taken the solution of animals and plants working together supporting one another and separated it into a system of problems which is creating illness, disease, and destruction of nature and life itself – in the name of progress.

I forgive myself for not realizing that nature doesn’t like mono-cultures and that sooner or later she destroys them – in the name of progress in supporting a world where All living beings experience life in dignity.

I commit myself to show how we destroy in the name of survival and call it progress.

I commit myself to expose the lies made in the name of progress while we rape, deplete and destroy the natural resources given for and as all Life on Earth.

I commit myself to show that the only progress being made within our world is the progress of control by those who have All the Money/Power – that’s not progress, that enslavement.

I commit myself to stop seeking experiences of convenience over life according to what’s best for All.

I commit myself to challenge our current industrialized food /money system by replacing it with that of an Equal Money System.

I commit myself to support an education/world/money system which secures the natural habitat of livestock/farm animals and plantations.

I commit myself to show the common sense in how mono-cultures are destroying our soil and the very nature of life here on Earth.

I commit myself to show how an Equal Money System is the Solution to restoring our soil, land, trees/forests and streams/rivers in order to preserve the natural living of life on earth.

I commit myself to educating others in how with Equal Money all living beings will experience a life of dignity according to what’s best for All.
