Vipassana Meditation 10 Day Retreat

https://www.dhamma.org/

The ten day course is free, then donations are requested to keep the course going. I began looking into this because it is what Kong-Pop U-Yen practices, and he sees the Universe in a way that makes beautiful sense. He does his best to explain to idiots like me, but he also claims that his practice of Vipassana is why he perceives so clearly. I want to get me some.

OK, I can afford it, I can even get someone to cover the farm for 10 days to go, so what next...?

The Lordship Right!

Let me hopefully not be the first to say this, but I don't believe anything they say anymore...anything. Eight hours after this historic, breaking news the advertisements prior and after the historic news are as ever choreographed and timed and paid for with the handsomest ransoms. Lies are truths and truths are condemnable. And the lies are so predicated upon the conditioned and rhetorical minds they insist we succumb to...shameless fools!

The Problem With Police

I can't with full conscience blame the police totally for all the incidents that have recently taken place. From the killing of twelve year old Tamir Rice in Ohio, to the actions taken against protesters during Occupy Wall Street, the police are not the only ones to blame. I would even go further and say the police have very little blame placed upon them. The politicians are the ones to blame for one hundred percent of the events that have taken place these last few years. Sure, the police have some responsibility in a moral aspect to respect their fellow man and women by refusing to comply with the orders demanded by politicians even if that sacrifices their jobs. We the people also are to blame for demanding government do something about everything and not demanding them to do nothing about something.

Politicians are elected to govern within the restrictions set by the federal and state constitutions. For the last few decades or more, politicians have violated that restriction for political gain. They want the people to see that they are doing something. When something horrible happens, the politicians are right there to promise new laws and restrictions and the people allow this to happen.

The issue today with all these incidence involving police is a direct consequence of years of laws that are nonsense. From the war on drugs to the attempted soda ban, these are "laws" that create conflict. The politicians write the "laws" and they send the police to do their dirty work. Naturally, the ones who are seen as aggressors will hold the blame such as the police are now, and the politicians who caused the aggression will use the situation to their advantage when the people cry for them to do something, which is also happening now.

These are your dreams as well

I recently began formatting a Dream Journal i kept back in 2007 and began to develop the delusion that i could be a published author. Throughout the editing process, i was amazed at my writings from seven years ago, much of it i'm reading again for the first time since writing it. Long story short, in January of 2007, i had just been dumped after a six year relationship, and decided to quit smoking weed, and start keeping a dream journal. Every morning, i would wake up and spill last nights dream onto my laptop, and kept this practice up for about a year.

Quick tax question, thought experiment

Example 1: I have a 1 dollar FRN. Say out of a lucky situation, I'm able to buy a $10,000 car (at least it's blue book value), from a guy that just wanted a cheeseburger and needed a dollar. He had a car, and we made a transaction. Am I taxed on that capital gain. I mean, I made $9,999 in that transaction. I believe I have to pay the tax when I sell the car, but, really do I need to at this point, even after the sale?

Nystrom, the Jap.

Pssst.

Hey.

Tell me something I don't know about you. This is kind of like DP truth or dare, only without the dare. We can do that one later.

Tell me something true about you.

I'll start: If I titled it, I'd call it "Nystrom, the Jap."

- - -

While I am American for the virtue and accident of birth, i.e., having been born on the soil of the Empire, my mother was a citizen of the country of Japan. She worked, as a copytypist (as in, to make copies), for the U.S. Army Occupation of Japan secretarial pool.

I am NOT a Conservative. I am a Liberal like our Founding Fathers!

One day we will wake up and become aware of the ways we have been manipulated and controlled. We have been purposefully deceived through the misuse of language. Liberal as defined by Google:

lib·er·al
ˈlib(ə)rəl/
adjective
adjective: liberal

1.
open to new behavior or opinions and willing to discard traditional values.
"they have more liberal views toward marriage and divorce than some people"
favorable to or respectful of individual rights and freedoms.
"liberal citizenship laws"
synonyms: tolerant, unprejudiced, unbigoted, broad-minded, open-minded, enlightened; More
permissive, free, free and easy, easygoing, libertarian, indulgent, lenient
"the values of a liberal society"
antonyms: narrow-minded, bigoted
(in a political context) favoring maximum individual liberty in political and social reform.
"a liberal democratic state"
synonyms: progressive, advanced, modern, forward-looking, forward-thinking, progressivist, enlightened, reformist, radical

I will admit this is not the entire definition on Google. This is only the first portion. It goes on and on and eventually turns back on itself. Our founding Father's called themselves liberal as well:

Why Liberty Lives in New Hampshire - Marc Clair and Mike Vine Discuss on the Lions of Liberty Podcast!

In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, I am joined by Mike Vine of the Free State Project to discuss the film “101 Reasons Liberty Lives in New Hampshire.” Mike describes how he became a libertarian at the young age of 13, and what eventually drove him to move to New Hampshire as part of the Free State Project. Mike and I discuss a few of the reasons presented in the film, and how the Free State Project could be a model for creating political change in other states and even countries.

Banksters last dance

“It is no coincidence that the century of total war coincided with the century of central banking.”

― Ron Paul, End the Fed
__________________________________

Banksters last dance

The orchestra plays its last songs
The printing presses act as drums
Streets of our towns
Filled with tear gas

Everyone clap your hands
Let your blood red lips
Kiss good bye's
To the dollar bills

As this Titanic sinks
Hangman's noose awaits
Lady usury her black robes
Become dressed in flames

Banksters last dance

Restoration of the planet arrives
People in every country holding hands

Meet Kevin Yoder

"Yoder, a second-term congressman whose largest contributors are in the finance industry, introduced the provision(that put taxpayers on the hook for the 303 Trillion dollar derivatives market) last summer. It was literally written by Citigroup executives, but Yoder took their language and rolled it into an amendment to a spending bill in a House subcommittee meeting. It got swept into the year-end spending package because it "was within the scope of negotiations" on it, according to an Appropriations Committee aide."
