"Die Isis"

Off the Governator's 22 Freeway at the Fairview exit I saw three men down on their luck but not in their spirits. From first appearances, they seem to be homeless veterans who increasingly occupy the street corners and freeway exits; they are opportunists seeking a spare dime from the ashtrays of each passing vehicle becoming the de facto toll collectors of the stop lights. Sometimes the faces change and I'll see a woman instead... perhaps a single mother?

Carl's Garden

Carl's Garden

Carl was a quiet man.. He didn't talk much.

He would always greet you with a big smile and a firm handshake.

Even after living in our neighborhood for over 50 years,
No one could really say they knew him very well.

Before his retirement, he took the bus to work each morning. The lone sight of him walking down the street often worried us. He had a slight limp from a bullet wound received in WWII.

Hard Times

HARD TIMES HEAD

This morning, the Muslim Brotherhood warned the United States that if the United States continued meddling in Syria, Egypt , Libya , and other potential hot spots in the Middle East, they intend to cut off America 's supply of 7-11 and Motel 6 managers.

If this action does not yield sufficient results, cab drivers will be next, followed by Dell, AT&T, and AOL customer service reps.

Finally, if all else fails, they have threatened to not send us any more presidents.

It's gonna get ugly, people.

How Can I Keep My Wealth

I have a chunk that I'm trying to build to invest in a home, either here or in Mongolia, and/or start a business here or in Mongolia. I have three years I think before I can build enough to begin, because I don't want to start with debt. Debt will be incurred either through moving or through running a business, therefore I have to start with zero.

A Catholic Hairdryer

A Catholic Hairdryer

In school, students are taught that lying is a sin. However, instructors also advised that
using a bit of imagination it was OK to express the truth differently without lying.
Here is an example of those teachings:

Getting a Hairdryer Through Customs.

An attractive young woman on a flight from Ireland asked the Priest beside her,
'Father, may I ask a favor?'
'Of course child. What may I do for you?'
'Well, I bought my mother an expensive hair dryer for her birthday.
It is unopened but well over the Customs limits and I'm afraid they'll

I Got A Knock on the Door Today, or, Why Fascism is Ascendant in America Today

So I got a knock on the door from a canvasser for a BART Director candidate.

Some background. BART is Bay Area Rapid Transit. It's the Bay Area's light rail system, and by far the crown jewel of the country's light rail systems, in my opinion. It's clean, it's comfortable, the ride is smooth, the trains are pretty reliable.

My Sunday School Lesson: The man who quit money


http://youtu.be/cDGZqaA9G9s

I woke up this morning really needing to be fed spiritually. I have'nt been to church in sometime and was missing the spiritual food and sense of community that I grew up with and still need. I came across this video and Daniel spoke to me and so I share it with my Daily Paul family.

Although I don't think I can live like Daniel does, his story and his perspective on many things I respect. I admire his humanness and feel deeply moved by him and the life he chose to live. I love you my Freedom family, and I am grateful to you and to Micheal for bringing us together. Peace and Love.
