Lift up one another to get the job done!

United we stand divided we don't

“ It’s not about black or white, yellow or brown, being rich or poor, smart or dumb. What matters is that we work together and lift up one another to get the job done. “

If you understand what I’m saying then pass the word on!

The disconnect  is that we are not quite grasping the fact that we need each other.  Rather than warring with one another and hoarding all the resources into a pile to pillage and plunder.  Rather than exploiting one that is weaker than you and taking from them, you will find it is much more rewarding to teach and nurture those weaker or less fortunate than you. In return, you will find they as well will share their strengths giving much in return as they have received.  An equitable exchange is fair and allows for mutual respect bringing all parties involved closer in harmony so that we may move and function as one.

We are one in essence and that essence is humanity.  Humanity consists of many different dimensions, depths, facets, layers, qualities, traits.  These diversities are so eloquently displayed in the myriad of beautiful cultures that exist here on this planet.  We are so blessed to be able to witness each other in our glory.  Do you not understand that when you extinguish one of those lights you kill off an integral aspect of the whole.  We all in our many diversities create the beauty that signifies humanity.  This world and the passing of this challenge is far bigger than one group, one race, one ideology.  It is only in given each other mutual respect that a natural peace ensues and the pieces are able to come together and work in harmony as intended.

Life is for a season this we know, how many seasons do we have left to get it right before that stage is reset, this no one knows.  But it would seem that we have lost our way blinded by the lust for power, greed, and control.

 

division-values-all-copy

In order for us to truly become a great nation we must overcome our fears, expanding our boundaries to new heights, depths and lengths never before were seen, nor imagined.  This can only be done by accepting the inevitable change before us.  Shrinking back into our old comfortable ways is not an option, press forward always.

The Bill of Rights

The Bill of Rights was added to the Constitution by the framers in the form of amendments.

Can a divided America heal?

How can the US recover after the negative, partisan presidential election of 2016? Social psychologist Jonathan Haidt studies the morals that form the basis of our political choices. In conversation with TED Curator Chris Anderson, he describes the patterns of thinking and historical causes that have led to such sharp divisions in America — and provides a vision for how the country might move forward.

Repetitive cycles of destructiveness must cease.

The human experience, the great experiment.

evolving publications 10/30/16

 

This challenge goes out to the individual reader that is reading this and to the world at large.
The challenge: understanding the current times requires knowledge of the past so that we can direct our future.
Let us come to a full understanding of our current condition. With the hope that we may embrace the human experience in its fullness. The hope is that we realize that man is ready to move forward out of his cocoon and metamorphosis into a new creation.

 

he2560x1440

The new creation requires new thoughts; mental expansion beyond the known territory into the unknown.
New ways of living out this existence may require A deeper understanding of our humanity. We can all be in agreement that the old ways must be shed for they are no longer beneficial to us in our transformation. But rather it would only serve to hold us back and entrap us in a repetitive cycle of destructiveness.  But we are all to familiar with this as we have been repeating this for Aeons, ad infinitum.

“Here we are so technologically advanced yet we still treat each other like dirt” I think we can do better than this folks!

SOUND OFF~~~~~ WHERE WE TELL IT LIKE IT IS ~~~~~~~ AND YOU RESPOND

What is it folks, I need your help with this, how do you even began to form your lips to shape the words to define the outright double standard that exist in this society.  Its just blatantly disgustingly obvious that this sickness is getting worse and the stench is unbearable.  It looks as though gangrene is setting in and some members will have to be cut out to stop the spread. Or the hell with it we can at this rate continue to watch the sickness spread.

Is it me or this election year seems to be increasing the spread of outright ludicrous behavior,  or is it that this spirit has always existed, and with some encouragement has felt the need; to like a festering blackhead explode to the surface in all its glory.

I would have to say that folks that we are merely seeing the beginning; this pot has been brewing for a long time and has yet to boil over.  Unfortunately no one said that it was going to be pretty.  We all have the right of expression as living beings its just that some of us on this third rock from the sun feel that their rights, “TRUMP“, others rights.  And under this false ideology a sense of privilege and superiority begins to set in the deep recesses of the mind and if this is programmed and set in the mind for generations a sort of delusion sets in place.

Well enough of that we live it everyday FOLKS,  the truth is this strong delusion is in the air you breath and in the water you drink.   Thats right folks in your face day in and day out to the point its depressing, lets not even get started on the Grand Illusion, that even David Blaine the master illusionist, cannot out due and that is of the illusion of The Great Melting Pot.

Outrage Over Bundy Verdict: White Militants Acquitted While Native Protesters Brutalized

 | October 28, 2016

SHARES

After Thursday’s Bundy verdict and Standing Rock response, the judicial system seems to be communicating loud and clear that white lives matter more.

On the same day that Ammon Bundy and his gang of domestic terrorists were acquitted for taking over federal property while armed to the teeth, over 100 Native Americans protecting their own land were arrested, gassed, beaten with batons, and shot with rubber bullets. The difference in how each group was treated couldn’t be more stark.

From the very beginning, the system was set up to favor the Bundys. Shortly after the takeover of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge in rural Oregon took place earlier this year, the police response was muted.

“During Saturday’s rally, not a police officer was visible. And so far law enforcement agencies have not approached the refuge or blocked access to the territory,” The Oregonian reported in January.

Even though the wildlife refuge was on federal property, no FBI agents or military units were deployed to remove the Bundy militia from the building. The Bundys’ acquittal came from an all-white jury, who took just 6 hours of deliberation to find the gang not guilty of the crimes they were charged for, despite the Bundys livestreaming the event to the world. And as the Associated Press reported, the threat of violence was very real, as federal authorities recovered nearly 17,000 live rounds of ammunition at the bird sanctuary, as well as almost 2,000 shell casings from rounds previously fired.

To contrast, the response from both state law enforcement and private security to the nonviolent civil disobedience exercised by the Standing Rock Sioux at the site of the Dakota Access Pipeline was incredibly heavy-handed. As water protector Dallas Goldtooth wrote on his Facebook profile, Native Americans protesting pipeline construction were dragged out of a religious ceremony at gunpoint, one of their horses was so badly injured by private security that it had to be put down, and national guardsmen were used to clear the protest site despite an order from President Obama’s Department of Justice halting pipeline constructionwithin 20 miles of the Missouri River.

The Sacred Stone Camp further described the violence carried out against unarmed indigenous protesters in a post to their website:

In addition to pepper spray and percussion grenades, shotguns were fired into the crowd with less lethal ammunition and a sound cannon was used (see images below).  At least one person was tased and the barbed hook lodged in his face, just outside his eye. Another was hit in the face by a rubber bullet… A member of the International Indigenous Youth Council (IIYC) that had her wrist broken during a mass-arrest on October 22nd was hurt again after an officer gripped her visibly injured wrist and twisted it during an attempted arrest. At least six other members of the youth council verified that they had been maced up to five times and were also shot and hit with bean bags.

German Lopez, a writer for Vox.comsummed up the injustice of the Bundy verdict:

“It is impossible to ignore race here. This was a group of armed white people, mostly men, taking over a facility. Just imagine: What would happen if a group of armed black men, protesting police brutality, tried to take over a police facility and hold it hostage for more than a month?” Lopez wrote. “Would they even come out alive and get to trial? Would a jury find them and their cause relatable, making it easier to send them back home with no prison time?”

Buddy Brothers Acquitted in Armed Rebellion at Oregon Wildlife Refuge

 | October 28, 2016
 

Ammon and Ryan Bundy, along with five of their followers, were just acquitted of federal conspiracy and weapons charges, despite admitting to participating in an armed occupation of a federally owned Oregon wildlife sanctuary for six weeks last January and February.

The defendants were acquitted of conspiracy and firearm charges, but jurors were unable to come to a decision on Ryan Bundy’s property theft offense.

None of the defendants denied taking part in the insurrection, but the Bundy’s rebellion struck a chord among ultraconservative activists and militia groups who were eager to rally around their fight against federal government control of local land. A juror was actually dismissed a day before the acquittal over concerns that he or she was unfairly biased.

While Bundy’s armed rebellion led to a standoff and eventually violence with police, the defendant’s lawyersargued that prosecutors did not prove that they had conspired to prevent federal employees of the Fish and Wildlife Service or the Bureau of Land Management from doing their jobs.

These acquittals of armed white ranchers come on the same day as dozens of unarmed Native American protesters were arrested by police in full riot gear while peacefully protesting the construction of the DAPL pipeline in North Dakota.

A separate trial for Ammon, Ryan, Cliven, and a few other Bundy men is slated for next year, this time in Nevada.

Signs of the Collapse of a decaying infrastructure. Or is it just business as Usual?

Cable News Silent as Police Face Off with Dakota Pipeline Protesters (PHOTOS/VIDEOS)

 


The standoff between water protectors protesting the construction of a multi-billion dollar oil pipeline and police forces has intensified today.

Well over a hundred officers in militarized riot gear have assembled in a line in direct confrontation with protesters, demanding that they move south, arresting those who refuse to move. Police say they have vowed to “take necessary steps to move trespassers from private property.” As of this writing, no major cable news networks have devoted significant coverage to the pipeline protests.

This standoff comes just a few days after a series of mass arrests against protesters, journalists, and filmmakers. Authorities claimed that the protesters were engaging in mass rioting, despite the fact that the protesters carry no weapons and continue to emphasize peaceful resistance tactics.

The Guardian has reported that the assembled forces feature officers from “across the state” and that a request for assistance has been made for out-of-state officers. The National Guard is also present, allegedly only “in a support role.”

Officers have deployed sound cannons against protesters in an attempt to get them to leave. According to tech blog Gizmodo, LRAD sound cannons have been known to cause permanent hearing loss.

Protesters are blockading the state highway with their own bodies, vehicles, and at one point a tire fire to prevent police forces from advancing.

“If there is any aggression and any violence, it will not be from our people!” declared one protester.

Protesters have taken to livestreaming to tens of thousands of people to speak out about the confrontations on social media, encouraging them to call local representatives, as well President Obama and Hillary Clinton, both of whom have remained mostly silent on this issue.

Virtually all reporting on this confrontation has been from social media and smaller outlets like Democracy Now! and Unicorn Riot. As of this writing, this developing story is absent from the homepages of CNN, Fox News, and NBC News.

“You guys are the media,” said Atsa E’sha Hoferer in a livestream. “I went to jail for you guys and your children and your grandchildren… We are a prayerful people. We have no weapons, no guns.”
