Under the Guise of Democracy…What Has America Become?

Continuing on this subject, let’s take a look at the forms of governing that function under the guise of “Democracy.”

FascismA form of far-right, authoritarian ultra-nationalism, characterized by dictatorial powers, forcible suppression of opposition, and strong regimentation of society and the economy.

Nazism…It is described as a form of fascism against liberal democracy and the parliamentary system…incorporating antisemitism, anti-communism, scientific racism, and the use of eugenics, which is a set of beliefs and practices aimed to improve the genetic quality of a human population.

Kleptocracy…Government by those who seek chiefly status and personal gain at the expense of the governed.

All of these are at work here in America…under the guise of democracy.

The saddest realization of this is people are courted by deception into believing that their voices will be heard…and their wants and needs will be implemented…if they elect the candidate who is the most persuasive of their chosen party in convincing their constituents of such…only delivering compromised versions of what the masses truly need to live a life of quality and promise to a life inclusive of “the American Dream.”

The Trump years provided a sobering inside view into how much Fascism…Nazism and Kleptocracy has situated specific doctrines of their belief and practices into “democracy” by destroying and undermining the principles of Democracy…while exposing the real motives and desires of the Republican Party…carefully orchestrated by McConnell…who carried out Trump’s agenda because it encapsulated the core of McConnell’s beliefs, wants and needs to protect “White privilege and supremacy, while robbing Republican and Democratic citizens of opportunities and finances to realize their entitlements to the “American Dream.” Mitch McConnell is “Old South…Old Conservative…Old Racist”… and a total threat to Change and America moving forward with the times…

Americans…”Baby-Boomers” and Generation X” have grown tired and indifferent to politicians and their empty and half-ass promises to get them into office or keep them there, so they can continue pushing their own self-interests at the expense and sacrifice of the American people… when it comes to money and power for the politicians…Republicans and Democrats which make up the American constituency become “just people” after elections…and all suffer together under the will of corrupt, self-serving politicians on both sides of the aisle…

The truth is a mind-blower and disappointing…

What has America become?

Where are we headed?

What we see is what we get…if we are not honest with ourselves and what is going on around us.

There is no greatness in a nation of division…racism…supremacy…regression…oppression…spiritual bankruptcy…immigration denial from a country populated by immigration…cultural hatred…chaos…pushing democracy by destroying and dismantling its own democracy…denying essential liberties and life sustaining elements to the citizens of its country…a country bent on destroying itself…by wiping out the best of its change and progress…condemning itself to go down in flames….

Under the Guise of Democracy…

This…is what America has become….

Salvation depends upon the collective courage to rid our country of the “poison politics” and those who spread them with such delicious brainwashing of the American public… to keep themselves in office…

Complacency will ensure our country’s descend…

What has America become to you?

Be truthful in your pondering…and take a good long look at what is going on around you…

Don’t fool yourself and don’t fall…

Under the Guise of Democracy…..

Happy Mother’s Day…Everyday!

Mother Earth…Moms…and those who stand in doing the nurturing…supporting…and loving as moms do…

Happy Mother’s Day…Everyday!

To mothers who are still watching over us from their transitional perch…we know you are with us…and we are thankful for your love…support…nurturing…protection and encouragement which surrounds us…and reminds us…that the circle of love is not broken when the body rests after its journey…

Without Mother Earth…and Moms…would there be life?

Remember to show your love…

Remember how much you are loved…

Remember who taught you love…

Everyday…is Mother’s Day…

Hug your mom…

Take in a deep breath…and remember without Mother Earth…

Air…would be rare…

Happy Mother’s Day to mothers everywhere….

Thank you Mother Earth…thank you mom and mothers around the planet…

For sustaining us…

Every…day…..

Under The Guise of Democracy…

Under the Guise of Democracy…

Nazism…Fascism…Kleptocracy…Seven days into May has shown the real and true face of American politics…spelling doom for America and its citizens.  “Conditional Freedom” is what we have in America…and what we’ve always had…real freedom is not and never has been a guarantee for all Americans… Where in the world does anyone have the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint?

Wherever there are people, and wherever there are those who wield power or government over others…there are impositions of will over the masses…never really the will of the people…because even the will of the people comes into play and conflict with choices that aren’t in alignment with their own… What people fail to comprehend and practice is what may be good and agreeable to you…may not be good and agreeable for another.

Why can’t people stop trying to make others accept their way of thinking when it comes to life and living? As long as what someone else chooses does not infringe upon your right to live your own life as you see fit, why must there be an imposition of your will upon another?

Let us take Roe v. Wade…

Why can’t a woman have choice and privacy as to how she manages her body?  What right does anyone have to decide… aside from any woman… who lives inside her body, or not?

The right to life isn’t respected by people.

Overturning Roe v. Wade is hypocritical at best…

How can people who profess to be “pro-life” justify the indiscriminate and continued murdering of Black Americans? Don’t they have the right to life?

The question of life and viability regarding pregnancy isn’t an issue that should extend itself to anyone who is not faced with such decisions…outside of the women who may find themselves in a position of choice…

Whatever choice is made, women’s health and well being should be the concern.

Before Roe v. Wade became a precedent of law, protecting a pregnant woman’s liberty to choose to have an abortion without excessive government restriction, many women sought out means that put their health and lives at great risk…

As a little girl, I remember a friend of my mother’s who had eight children.  One night my mom received a call…Her friend had discovered she was pregnant and another child was not an option…This was back in the 1960’s…She decided on an abortion…it wasn’t performed by a doctor…and she died. 

Self-righteous views and savior complexes are not needed…no one has the right to decide…condemn…or run interference with a woman’s choice over her body…no matter what…because she will find a way to find a solution…her solution…not yours or anyone else’s… Therefore, safety and well being are the solutions…not your will…Conditional freedom…which is not freedom. 

What has America become?

We will continue…

May Day…May Day…Help The Human Race!

On the Eve of April 30th…one thing is painfully clear…the human race has crossed over into the danger zone…

As we transition into the fifth month of 2022, we enter into “critical mass.” The world is at war. No matter how one chooses to view it, we are swimming in chaos and destructive scenarios…around the globe. Don’t fool yourselves…there are imminent energies of some kind of life-altering change…swirling around each and everyone…living and breathing on this planet of ours…and each and everyone of us will be a part or instigator of that change…

Putin has set the world on its ear with his change…His self-centered views and actions…He has changed and altered lives of millions of people…due to his grandiose…outdated and counter-moralistic approach to “leadership” in being a tyrant and destroyer…instead of a “Shepherd of Peace….A Light in the world”…He has chosen to be…”The Blight of the world”….There is no salvation or honor in destroying humanity’s innocence…Children…Women…Men…not only in his country with his life-stifling tactics…but in his brother and sister countries…Ukraine and other surrounding countries he has battered into submission with his ‘leadership” of fear…oppression…and death. Those who follow this type of “shepherding” are destined to perish…there is no “greatness” ever achieved following that which destroys….

Here in the United States…we are lead by those who seek to “alter” truth for their own gain…in deceitful, self-aggrandized “leadership”…in our government…on both sides of the aisle. People are surviving on promises which are meant to be broken…disguised with meager attempts to make a difference in a country shaped by racism and self-proclaimed privilege which only takes what has been brutally attained in the quest of “humanness”…back to the “dawning of the Dark ages, in progress….

President Biden continues to dole out pieces of a “slice of pie” to American people by constantly deferring actions that could render millions of people a new lease on life…and give a shot in the arm to our economy…by forgiving student loans…His refusal to step into the role of someone who finally lives up to the promises made to the people…to be a real 21st century leader…has fallen instead, to his promises which mostly reflect those he made to himself…by finally achieving his long term dream…of the Presidency.

What does it all mean if you can’t bring about change to “loopholes” designed to keep people from truly living lives of happiness…freedom…liberty…peace…and fulfillment…when they are constantly living in servitude to a government that serves itself…at the expense of it’s constituents?

Biden is a true ‘politician.’ Unlike his fellow peers who have developed an open and boastful stance conveying their unsavory and unholy political scams, schemes and disloyalties to democracy…he embraces democracy…selectively.

It is “heart” which changes a nation…not promises here and there to pacify constituents…”Heart” is demonstrated in the easing of life for citizens to make a better life…not tightening the grip with economic vices…student loans are a gold mine for it’s investors…is Biden one? Or just dedicated to corporate America by way of his ties to Delaware? Deferments prolong the agony of the burden…along with “selective” forgiveness.

How much “American pie” can be devoured by the select few?

A tree is known by it’s fruit…and the trees that are continually planted on the Hill…yield the same…strange fruit…time after time…the tree looks promising…yet the fruit always leaves something to be desired in quality…quantity…and taste….

The First Black this…the First Latino that…The First Asian…The First Native American…the First Immigrant…How long will “We the People” be subjugated to the divisions of those “self-appointed, deliverer few” immigrants descended from immigrants from the Mayflower? Whatever “good” or “progress” which has since been made…has been grossly overshadowed…misplaced…and lost…to self-righteousness and ego raising…rendering chaos and aimless reasoning in a country that once had the proper ingredients to be a light on the journey of “humanity.” Yet, we are still struggling to maintain…our…”civility.”

A couple in their sixty’s…went for a walk in concord, New Hampshire…a little over a week ago…and were found days later…murdered…with no leads…an interracial couple…out for an afternoon walk…are now “statistics.” Living in a state that was once the third in the nation in “klansmen.” Did “Trumpism” give rise to the head of this snake? Do the math…

Adults are being attacked by gangs of “children.” Morals and values have disintegrated into a new type of juvenile delinquency…and “adult leadership.”

The more things change…the more they remain the same… Struggling to keep food on the table…a roof over the head…while grasping at chasing a dream that is no longer attainable for many…is swiftly becoming America’s graveyard.

Billionaires who can change the fate of the world…by making it better where it truly affects the lives of people for the better…in neighborhoods around the country…and around the globe…choose to control and shape lives with their “whims.’ After all…they can really afford to create their own perceptions of “Mt. Olympus”…world domination…and managing platforms to further enhance…”Free Speech.”

The same deterioration is running rampant around our world…which is self-created…

May Day…May Day…Help the Human Race…

Have we fallen so far from grace that any hope of salvation may result in humanity turning to ash?

Let us observe what emerges in the coming month of May….

Earth Day…

Earth sustains and nurtures life in all its forms every day of the year….

One day is dedicated to Earth each year…

What if Earth decided to limit her resources to humanity and the plant and animal kingdoms for one day out of the year? Where would life be?

So why are we so bent on honoring the planet for one day…while continuing to destroy it the other 364 or in the case of Leap Year, 365 days?

Without the Earth, humanity could not survive…all life as we know it would cease to exist.

It is time to stop fooling ourselves into believing that the planet is limitless in its supply…and do whatever we can to make sure that we have a place to live… As it stands now…we will all be “homeless” in a handful of years…not decades…years. War destroys…taking lives and contaminating the planet, yet, “rationalization” delays putting an end to those who callously disrupt the flow of life that Earth provides.

On this Earth Day…vow to make the preservation and restoration of the planet a mission…everyday of your life…

Where would we be without the beauty and the incredible wonders of our planet?

The forests…the trees…the rivers…streams…lakes…oceans?

Mountains…hills…valleys…?

Continents…?

Homeless….

Give back…

Save the planet…

Our lives depend on it.

Happy Earth Day….

Easter Sunday…New Life…Can We Rise As Well?

Easter Sunday marks the Resurrection…and everlasting life…

New life…Can we rise as well?

We have been given another opportunity to embrace life and living by understanding that we create who we are and what we become. We choose life by connecting with humanity in service and love…We must step away from selfishness and the art of creating sins with the belief that they are inconsequential and limited to the maker…

The gift of salvation is not to be mocked…

When we really understand what has been done on humanity’s behalf by the sacrifice of the Lamb, Jesus…We will gain the gifts…the gifts he possessed…and said that we as well can and will do greater works than he…He and the Almighty believed in humanity more than humanity believes in and of itself…

Communion with one another is our salvation…

We have been entrusted with the role of Good Shepherd…

We have been given the chance to rise and become risen in understanding and passing on the real meaning of Love and its transformational energy…and becoming a practicing witness of the resulting, life- changing miracles.

Humanity depends on its understanding of the meaning of Easter.

No matter how you choose to express your spirituality…or not. It will not change your connectivity to humanity…or how you affect others by the way you choose to live your life. Your actions or non-actions…affect the growth or regression of life everywhere on the planet in all it’s forms.

What we can control of what happens between us on this planet…we have created…the Good…The Bad…The Ugly…and the Horrific…

We can change…

We can rise…

We can accept the Gift…

We can unify our planet…after all…Division is a “people” creation…promoted daily.

Easter Sunday…

New Life…

New Beginnings…

Can we rise as well?

These Easter Sundays are not limitless…

Soon…choices will no longer be an option…

We can rise…

We must believe.

Happy Easter…..

Good Friday…He Took Away The Sins of the World…Did We Bring Them Back?

With his death, Christ took away the sins of the world…Did we bring them back?

Good Friday is a day of mourning of this supreme sacrifice given by Christ to secure humanity a passage into everlasting life….

What have we done with our salvation?

Take a look around your immediate surroundings…then take a look around the world…

There is still so much human induced pain and suffering upon immediate family…friends…co-workers…strangers…animals…the planet…for reasons that are far and away from sacrifice…compassion…and selflessness…

The origin of “compassion” comes from Latin which means “to suffer with.” A greater commitment that not only means to have sympathy but to suffer along with whoever is suffering… This is how Christ gave his life for humanity…He made the ultimate sacrifice by suffering along with humanity in taking humanity’s sins and suffering upon himself.

It appears as though the sins of the world are back…a hundredfold! This time…we are being reminded that we can choose to uphold the great sacrifice and show of compassion that was made on humanity’s behalf…to ensure the salvation that we have been given…Holy Week culminating with Good Friday…isn’t an occurrence that comes just once a year…Love…Sacrifice…Compassion…are always with us to exercise every second of everyday.

There are those who believe that sins will never be accounted for, and therefore, they make it their mission in life to violate every universal law which extends into laws of humanity, without believing their actions consequential…Every human breath and action is held accountable…and will be satisfied…There is nothing random in the universe…From black holes to meteors crashing to Earth…Everything holds meaning and accountability….

Use this day of Good Friday to understand its significance…and yours.

The gift of salvation was made with compassion…sacrifice…love…and the knowing and belief…that humanity was worth it…

He took away the sins of the world…Have we brought them back?

Search your hearts…

It is there…you will find the answer…

And…Salvation….

Holy Thursday…Maundy Thursday…

Holy Thursday…Maundy Thursday…

“Love one another as I have loved you.”

The Last Supper…

Jesus washed the feet of his disciples…teaching them to serve…to love and to serve…

What has happened to humanity?

How we have divided ourselves!

To not believe…does not give passage to evil.

To be without love…is to be soulless…

These times are meant to “see” who we really are…and what we have become…

These times are meant to separate the wheat from the chaff…

These are the times of self-confrontation…

These are times of enlightenment…

These are times of the bottomless pit…

These are the times of salvation…

Holy Thursday is the day we command ourselves to choose…

To rise…or to fall…

Eternal life…or Eternal damnation…

It has nothing to do with belief…

It has everything to do with…to be…or not to be…

Love is not a religion…

It is a way of life…

He who is always with you…is…here…

Reminding us with Holy Week…

And…

It’s meaning…

His Coming was not to create a new religion…

He came to bring The Truth…

And the Way to Light…

The Path…Is Love…

Enter the Light of Love through Service to Humanity…

The greatest lesson…

“Love one another as I have loved you.”

Unconditionally….

Holy Week…A Time To Remember…

Today marks the beginning of Holy Week for many who still understand the importance of their spirituality…

This week is filled with trials…tribulations…sacrifice…regeneration…salvation…eternal life…

During this most holy of weeks in humanity’s existence…take the time to remember…reflect…and grasp the true meaning of what it really means to sacrifice life for salvation and continuance…

So much has been forgotten by humankind…

What the gift of life really is all about…

What it means to forgive…

What salvation of the soul represents…

Remember…

Remember…

Reflect…

Give thanks…

Welcome humility…

Welcome the grace to begin again…

Reach out to be reached…

Reach out to be that anchor…

Call upon your power of Love…

Through God…and His Messengers…

However you see Him/Her…

Many roads lead to the same destination…

A Savior showed the way…

Remember that Light…bring it to the surface…

The world so needs it now…

Holy Week is here…

Don’t let it pass you by….

Remember….

Comments…Thoughts…and Questions…

Comments…Thoughts…and Questions…

G.I. Jane was a movie about a woman rising to the occasion in a male dominated military…namely the US Navy’s SEAL/C.R.T. program. The program had a standard 60% dropout rate for men…LT. Jordan O’Neill, (Demi Moore’s character) was determined to prove everyone wrong about her passing the program. She succeeds… The joke made was referencing a haircut…not a condition…the movie was a testament to the spirit of women and their ability to overcome adversity and triumph against all odds…The Smiths clearly failed to rise above and made it personal…and costly…to their detriment. Violence is never the answer to displeasure…

Chris Rock emerged with gains, respectability… and as a person who rose above an unnecessarily, volatile situation…it was the bringer of the physical action who belittled himself…. excuses do not equal passage to put hands on another perpetuating physical harm or verbal abuse…Everyday we are all faced with trials of our evolutionary process to rise above that which would pull us down into the depths of self-destructive and caustic behaviors…toward ourselves, as well as others…and we choose…

Save America? Muzzle Trump and the GOP…

Will America ever live up to its name of “United States of America”? Are we headed for that great graveyard of past empires that have crashed and burned into oblivion?

Forgiving…mending…and healing the past…will lead the way to unity…along with restructuring the present political parties to really be the voice of the people…and a nation of democracy.

Staying on course with the present GOP will surely condemn the nation to ruin…their loyalties are not rooted in Democracy…The majority of the Republican party promote poisonous theories and ideals, placing their party above the Constitution…Liberty…and Freedom….as well as real service to their American constituents…on both sides of the political spectrum. They promote division and the hateful doctrines which continue to keep America divided….

We must not walk blindly into harmful principles and voting changes that will render our country a remnant of what it can be again…America, the Beautiful…

Imperialism is slavery…it has no place on American soil…Those Republican Senators that are praising Putin along with a fallen, narcissistic businessman bent on controlling a nation through a passive-aggressive GOP political party…chipping away at American democracy…places our nation nearer to an eve of destruction…

All over the world…we have witnessed that rules are only made to be broken…applicable to some, yet not to others….If we cannot contain and put a stop to the tyrants masquerading as politicians in our own country…how can a tyrant and demonic presence such as Putin be stopped? Others with Putin’s agenda are just waiting in the wings to further wreak havoc and destruction upon unsuspecting populations who are only interested in living a good life in peace…with freedom.

Ukraine is fighting the good fight…they believe in Ukraine….they believe in freedom…and they are dying for that belief and dedication and loyalty…. to democracy and peace…

Those nations in the world…along with America…must stand up to peace and freedom…by fighting alongside Ukraine, in addition to sanctions…we must do more than the impossible….

We must not fool ourselves into believing that this aggression and genocide perpetrated by Putin and his Russia…is not on our doorsteps…it is…and our boots are already in it.

We are faced with the monumental task of literally healing the world…

We cannot afford to fly off the handle in pursuit of the mundane and self-absorbed…trite…chest-beating heroics…

Before life can be lived…

There must come an appreciation for it…

On every level and spectrum of life…

Our purpose…

Is….?
