432 Hz musician needs help with eye surgery; might Rand Paul assist?

I met a musician recently who is working with 432 Hz music, Brian Collins. He helped me with my keyboard, and to thank him I wanted to share his site and his call for help: http://omega432.com/a-call-for-help -- he has an eye injury for which he needs funding to repair.

His music is here: http://brian9.bandcamp.com/

I am currently listening to "The Journey" from his album "Awakenings", which you can listen to here: http://brian9.bandcamp.com/album/awakenings

Hmm. (I just updated the subject.) I wonder, would it be possible to put this man in touch with Dr. Rand Paul, who sometimes performs charity eye surgeries? If anyone is in a position to do so, please consider mentioning it to him?

With love.

How I did almost 1/4000 of Ron Paul - DIY Home Birth

Admitted, headline misleading. But it's great for attention.

Ron Paul delivered more than 4000 babies. I delivered 1. And he was a 10'er.

Don’t know if you use this number rating system immediately after birth (color, breathing, body intact, etc), but I was the only one present, so I examined him, and announced: He is a 10! The Doctor on the phone, lying on the bedside, must have noted my rating, because looking at the birth papers, his rating states: 10!

What happened was that we never made it to the hospital with my 3rd kid. Having tried spending a long waiting time in the hospital, giving birth before, she was determined to stay at home as long as possible. And she did!

I called the doctor at the hospital, who was expecting us, to inform that I was unable to persuade her into the car, so they had to come to my house instead, for the delivery or a pickup.

They sent an ambulance, but when they arrived, it was all over: "I just put down the phone; I can see the color of his hair!"

Why the American Dream Requires a World in Flames


Recently, Charles Hugh Smith posted arguments for why the U.S. dollar is bound to get stronger rather than collapse the way most folks in the gold-n-liberty club have been expecting. To be sure, they have had the right perspective on the problems and reasonable expectations for very severe consequences. After all, there are endless historical examples of government financial malfeasance to prove the gold-n-liberty folks right -- from Diocletian's debasement to Zimbabwe's 100,000,000% inflation rate.

My Dad The Neocon, Turned On Me!

As long as I remember, my dad has been a neocon. Supporting Anders Fogh Rasmussen, The Bush Family, The Obama wars.

"We need to help Israel, look at their neighbors", OR "They (insert country) need military help, to get to where we are (democracy)"

For years since my own awakening (2007), I have been telling him: "We need to just leave these people alone"

Two days ago, my dad visited for coffee, the talk fell on current world affairs: ISIS, Gaza, Ukraine... I observed my dad take a sip of coffee, waiting for him, to tell me the Neoconservative truth, that somehow we NEED another war.

He sipped, and fell into thoughts, I let him be for a moment, then he uttered these words: "We need to just leave these people alone"

Whether WEATHER or something sinister is causing California's drought

Has anyone else noticed the disturbing trend of blaming weather for economic stagnation that is taking place? Allover we are seeing weather being blamed for poor economic conditions. Droughts and cold weather are being blamed for poor farming, manufacturing and retail output.

Saving Face is our Saving Grace

There's been a fair amount of criticism of Rand Paul lately and I want to address it. Let me be clear about how I feel: I don't question Rand Paul's integrity one bit, and I don't think anyone else should either. Just because he tailors his message differently to different audiences doesn't mean the outcome is any different: more liberty. Notice recently how he supported attacking Isis in the CONTEXT of defending the US embassy (a perfectly constitutional role for the military)? That allowed him to appear strong militarily, while still remaining constitutional. THAT is how it HAS to be done.

Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012

The Smith-Mundt Modernization Act of 2012 was a law designed to make it "legal" for the government to propagate lies and deceptions through the media. (The original Smith-Mundt Act made it a crime.)
Since that time, we have seen:
-the Colorado Joker
-Navy Yards
-another colorado operation
-Santa Barbara drive-by
-Fed-Ex Incident
-Las Vegas Joker
-Foley Beheading
-Pennsylvania State Police
-Boston marathon
-and of course...Sandy Hook

Funny, coming right after that "law," huh?

Who are we?

Who are we?


A post from the 2007 DP prompted me to post this response now, in the last quarter of 2014.

So, who are we?

We are activists. We were born of activism. We are Conspiracy Theorists. We have been CT since at least 1963 or since we were old enough to question things that didn't add up.

We are Truthers, we are preppers, and we are Constitutionalists. Since 9/11 we have learned that we need to be all of these things as, at the very least, America's long term future looks for the first time to be unsteady. Notwithstanding, of course, the might of the Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama new world order WAR machine and it's propensity to force democracy across the globe through the barrel of a gun. (The same WAR machines we now see in our towns pointing out the bogeymen among us but, I digress.)

We are happiness seekers. We pursue happiness. We seek to make a better life for our children. We STILL do that and that is who "we" are.

We are Christians, Atheists, Zionists and Anti-Zionists. We are Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, and of the Indian sub-continent. We have always held these beliefs and we have always figured out a way to peacefully co-eXist.

We are White, we are Black, we are Asian, we are Hispanic, we are Native American, and we are everything in between and all-encompassing.

Do Something Now!

Do Something Now!

Do something now,
You really know how,
Be the change you want to see,
Lift yourself and humanity.

Read a book and learn some more,
Like Ron Paul's Revolution or 1984,
Self-educate then educate,
Make a sign and demonstrate.

Practice non-aggression in all you do,
Tell them Big Brother's Watching You,
Please don't wait or hesitate,
Do something now, it's getting late.

Have love in your heart, don't be mean,
Resist the evil war machine,
Protect life in every way,
Stand up and have your say.

Let the world be your school,
Live The Golden Rule,

How I finally Managed to Ditch Fiat Currency Without Embracing Bitcoin.

There is so much that I want to say and it is important. This is the path that I have taken off the Federal Reserve counterfeit dollars and back to real money. The gold dollars. We don't need to use the Federal Reserve Notes anymore. Be patient with my writing and I will walk you through it.

Teachers Still Enthrall Them

Teachers Still Enthrall Them

Teachers still enthrall them with the story,
Of Ulysses and his glory,
How he saw the world, conquered every foe,
And set a Goddess' heart aglow,
How he tricked the Trojans with a wooden horse,
Returned to Penelope, of course,
All like some wonderful, exciting game,
Living happily ever after with fortune and fame.

The Iliad is usually omitted,
Especially the atrocities committed,
Of Priam weeping bitterly for his son,
Of Hector's body defiled,
Of multitudes beguiled,
Of the annihilation of an entire city,
Of so many slaughtered without pity.

Yes, I too am tired. So very tired.

I've read the posts here about being exhausted and not having the will to fight any longer. I too am tired. Very very tired. I've served with the Army Rangers, and I've fought both my battles and my personal demons. I've lost friends, and loved ones. I've won some battles, and lost many more. And come to realize that sometimes even when you "win" you lose, and that you can be "dead" right.
