Yes we must start from the ground up.
1) Get rid of the Federal Reserve
2) Go more local. I am involved in my local Village government and the people running our Village are honest, hard working and noble/moral people.
3) Research, turn off those damn ipods, cell phones, video games, romance novels, TV, and connect with your neighbors and community.
4) Rebel...............we must unite and rebel against the tyranny that has overshadowed our planet.
5) Service to others. You are either a me or we person. If you are a me person, you are (IMO) a contributing factor to the degradation of humanity on
Thank you so much for your quality contribution, for having wonderful communication skills, to put this into the perspective that I wanted to see.
Although due to having seen the control that certain wealthy individuals who slum in poorer ghettos of humanity seem to do, there a few of us wide
awake single mothers, who have lived on the fringe, in the trenches, who see that even at the lower levels, its heavily managed, ie. programs, they
work all the levels of the pryamid to their advantage. Someone is actually being paid to further corrupt and associate with my friends very
attractive coc aine addicted daughter who has been both a participant and a victim of this usary of humanity.
So I see both street wisdom, and programs.
Joni Mitchell had an album that bombed, at the market, but was one of my favorites aside from her early classics, Dog Eat Dog, and one of the lines
was "The watchful ones amongst the slaves", and always knew it to mean that those who don't fit into the middle bubble truly have the wisdom, as if
they are walking the path of the kings.
Yet, watching the homeless men I see (and I don't see the women and children) meet up on their bikes at the 7/11, there does seem to be a bit of a
black market economy going on, and I can't blame them either, yet, it creates a problem for me in the kind of involvement as I went through nearly a
decade with abuse, and black market lifestyle on the side, from my ex and his friends, and woke up 100% to issues I'd never known about, I was handing
out bottles of milk, using the last of my milk up for my own babes, to give to his addicted friends baby, and then go pawn myself to ensure we got
through the month. Dealing with issues where a father, who usually was hard working, but didn't spend his money on his family (that"s the most common
situation), insisting she and 3 children, one a baby could eat on 100 a month while he drank over a 1000 with his freinds and who knows what else, and
the milk cost alone in that family should have been more like 150.
My family, I mix whole milk jugs with powdered skim milk, though for drinking we cant really stand the mixed, though it almost tastes like 2%, and
with 5 boys, now 4, cereal, tea, coffee, glasses of milk, cooking, mixed in bulk it still costs well over 100 a month for milk, and an enormous amount
each month to feed the family.
So we've dealt with issues that were huge, and my heart bleeds for people. None of this should even be illegal, so that everything would be done in a
different way to begin with.
But they've worked very hard to destroy families and traumatize children. That is another issue, due to my own experience and disability/5 boys, yet
staying home and providing food nonstop, games nonstop to the kids, we've had my household filled with 8 or more boys, some very troubled by foster
homes and very affected by the drugs and trauma done, and it was trauma for us, things would go missing, my sons had to be forced to quit smoking, due
to bad influences, but you'd surprised at how many corrupted kids just adored my dissarayed, kids camp, where the kids don't go out, they hang in, and
stay out of trouble.
Thankfully we moved, and got away from it all, but those years were the most informative ones, like hands on learning, and great trauma.
I know nowadays its more and more middle class that can be affected. Anyone can lose their home, and even those working at good jobs, a nurse for
example, a single wage earner, with 3 kids, needs to pay 1200-1500 a month often just for rent for a family size. Its beyond belief that we live in a
world like this.
Finding solutions will have to come from the bottom up, for the middle class are too indoctrinated in the system, and live in bubbles, taught to cast
blame on others, the divide and conquer techniques used.
I have lots of ideas, always have, but what makes it very difficult for poor, disabled, single moms, or anyone seeing the problems who are not in
those bubbles, is they feel unequal, and their opinions unvalued, for most people in a community have respect for the haves, not the have nots, and
tend to blame others.
So its very hard to work up the courage to speak out close to home. Yet, have realized that if the platform is down this way, addressing straight off
the top, this kind of control of the poor, and that we are now speaking up with dignity, then there is a good chance to make it grow.
It can become a light. Its overcoming the fear of speaking up and facing blame and prejudice and penalities when your poor, though solutions may be
evident to some.
Yes, I'm going to work on some of the ideas, I've had and welcome all contributors. Because if we can make that presence, that counsel of citizens
who problem solve and educate the greater communities, this year, in communities, this could tip the polarity balance of our planet.
Also, send a message to those mismanaging it.
I've encountered in my dealings with police and professionals, in the past, that there is a lot of guilt there. And I really think if a group is
formed and a presence, articles, street journalism, accountability and even fund raising needed, there is Guilt there and it can be tapped, and
whenever one sees evidence the person isn't callous it means this someone to work on, if they're in a higher up position or a position to
