Lord’s Day: Morrissey on Animals’ Lives and Our Choices

Meat is Actually Murder. Go Veggie

I’d encourage us all to watch “Earthlings” again and see what we are doing to Billions of God’s Living Creatures every year. A famous fast food chain touts “Billions Served” as if the Billions were the people who come to eat their ‘food’

The Animals are the REAL Billions. ‘Served up’ in various ‘food products’ and clothing choices we make on a regular basis.

He said it right in the Video. “We don’t need it… we weren’t designed to eat it… and it’s Cancer causing”

Push Pause on the automatic reach for meat, eggs, and yes,…dairy… long enough to think about where these “Food Products” come from and what Processes and Production Practices has to go into what you put ‘into’ your and your family’s mouths and stomachs. Continue reading

Finishing Well Friday: The Witness of a Life Well Lived

Kayla finished well and did as Jesus did, serving others.  Please pray for her family during this time of loss and mourning.

She didn’t just talk about helping people or serving them in their suffering. She suffered with them and lived a life of giving.

So we have to just Accept a 50% Cancer Rate??

I say B.S… Go Veggie !!

By the way… my Cholesterol is down 30 points since going Vegetarian in Jnaiuary. My last testing was in October and my Total Cholesterol was at 208 (not bad for my genetics) This month’s testing for work?? 178 and BP 122/86.

Great results already. Go Veggie to have a better chance of being the Exception rather than the ‘Norm’ of people getting Cancer during your lifetime.

Lord’s Day: The Post Civil War ‘Heroes’ were the North American ‘Hitlers’

Hitler Got His Ideas for Jewish Extermination and Concentration Camps from US

I just finished reading two books. One on the Killing of Crazy Horse and the other on Crazy Horse and Custer. What I came away with was a sad and horrifying image of the Post Civil War Government’s Genocidal bent to once and for all deal with the ‘Indian Problem’ with our own version of the Final Solution.

Native Americans would be rounded up on Reservations, away from  their Ancestral Lands to make way for us the ‘Pure Race’ to settle and crisscross with Railroads. The boldly stated and unapologetic Goal of this New Post Civil War Government now in control of the United States was the impoverishment, decimation and eventual Extermination of the many varied Native American Tribes and Bands.

And Hitler took his cues from our Successes in doing so not even worried that we would intervene. ‘Why would we?”

At the same time He was doing it to the Jews and anyone else who his Aryan Super Race deemed inferior or problematic…

FDR was doing it HERE in the United States to American Citizens of Japanese and German decent in what were ‘quaintly’ called Internment camps.

To-may-to, to-mah-to. Internment Camps… Reservations… Concentration Camps…

Death Camps either way full of disease, starvation, filth and Death.

History seems to be double kind to the Victor (mostly because they get to write their own successes and revise their own defeats and atrocities as necessary evils in a time of War)

Reading these two books and preparing to read another that I picked up on Red Cloud, I’m struck by the barbarity of my own country and the similarity of the Victors of the Civil War with the philosophy, brutality, and utter contempt for human life possessed by the Nationalist Socialist Party of Adolph Hitler and Nazi Germany. (by the way… in the early 1900’s, the National Socialist party here in the US ‘rebranded as the Progressive Party_ of which there were prominent figures and politicians in BOTH Republican and Democratic camps… Theodore Roosevelt Republican and Woodrow Wilson Democrat. Modern examples would be Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton)

The Killing of Crazy Horse by Thomas Powers

Crazy Horse and Custer by Stephen Ambrose

All of us as Americans should be asking ourselves what happened to the America of the several independent yet voluntarily associated and confederated States Declared in 1776, made free from an oppressive foreign government by the Revolutionary War and established by the first Constitution in the history of mankind?

What was it about the so called Civil War that made our country the pattern of Total Warfare and Genocide for the most brutal and murderous Regime of the 20th Century?

Happy Birthday, Langston Hughes. Poet that preceded the Dream of which MLK spoke

Poet of the Dream of which MLK Jr spoke and the Broken Winged Bird that Maya Angelou referred.

Harlem

By Langston Hughes 1902–1967 Langston Hughes

What happens to a dream deferred?
      Does it dry up
      like a raisin in the sun?
      Or fester like a sore—
      And then run?
      Does it stink like rotten meat?
      Or crust and sugar over—
      like a syrupy sweet?
      Maybe it just sags
      like a heavy load.
      Or does it explode?
