Action Changes Things…

Action Changes Things…

When you are the anvil, hold you still; when you are the hammer, strike your fill.” –John Florio–
These words written in 1591, express a beautiful and economical; deep truth. That truth is, in order to live our lives we require these two balanced and related qualities. You could say that in today’s world they would be “humbleness” and “steadfastness “; both can work well even in distress; both can equal “strength in action”. We stand at a cross-road today, one of importance in both our humbleness and our steadfastness. We are both the object and the subject in this matter; and will either be the slave of fate or its master.

Truth is, there are and will be some situations and circumstances in which we will be unable to take action. They may strike at any hour with a shocking force. All we truly can do is brace ourselves against the shock and learn from it. These are our anvil moments.

There are also the other situations and conditions in which we will have the power to choose how to act. There will be times when we require our firmness and singleness of purpose. In those times we would do well to strike hard, and above all, strike at the right place and time. With just two other qualities…patience, and strength—“We the People” can endure anything, and achieve many positive things for ourselves, this nation, and the world. We can become our “Strength in Action” when we “Unite and Act”. I would suggest we become both the hammer and the anvil today; I would suggest we unite and act as one strong voice to say ENOUGH to corrupt government and business. “Action Changes Things”!

The scandalous actions of many in politics, and business today, would suggest that our fragile Democratic Republic is at risk of being stolen from US-All by a few who no longer desire a free and democratic nation of “Self Rule”. There may be those who read this article who will say “Just another conspiracy theory”. I would suggest to those who will cry conspiracy WAKE UP AND TRULY SMELL THE BURNT COFFEE! And I will suggest that there truly is a conspiracy against freedom throughout the world. In America, if “We the People” are to continue living in the “Land of the free, and Home of the brave” we must wake up to what is really happening in our wonderful Democratic Republic, and the world.

Our way of life is more today than ever before being threatened. Often the threats come from those sworn to protect our Constitution, Bill of Rights, and our Democratic Republic. Today this nation, under God, this nation, which still is the greatest experiment for a free people, this America with its still brilliant Constitution, and Bill of Rights; this nation of diverse people who still feel they have the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”; has at its fingertips the necessary instruments to take our country back from those who seem bent on destroying it from within. You may question what that instrument is. Simply put, it’s “We the people”; if we come together to “Form a more perfect Union”. The corrupt and unbalanced establishment doesn’t think we can, or will. That’s why they are becoming more blatant in their words and actions. It’s why we have an election in which neither candidate is trusted or liked.

The freedoms and liberties we Americans have have a cost to them, it’s not money, nor violence, or coercion of any kind. Rather it is participation, that’s what self rule is all about. It won’t happen through a system that is as corrupt as America has today. It can happen through the tweaking and fixing of the system that brought this nation to its independence. I’m not talking of taking up arms, or a rebellion through militia and solders; rather a “Movement” of a free people uniting in one great wave demanding what our great American documents guaranteed the day they were written. That being; “We the People”, of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure Domestic tranquility, provide for a common defense, promote general welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution and “Bill of Rights” for these “United States of America.”

There’s nothing in this statement that would allow for any small band of people to assume they should take away, or destroy the America that so many “American Hero’s”; since this declaration was written, have sacrificed their lives for. So, why should we allow such treachery to succeed? Our nation was formed from a movement to end certain political relationships, to assure God Given rights to every man and woman, to end an unjust government, to create equality among all men and women, to form a government that would protect the weak and poor from the wealthy and big business.

I was raised believing, (and still do), that “God created man and woman. Man and woman, created the Constitution; the Constitution created government; and Government created Corporations”. Today’s cynical world seems to teach that a rich few and corporations create government, corporations and the few run government, and Man and Woman are no more than “Human Resources, inventory”, to be used and abused for their profit. That worthless Federal Reserve Dollars are God. I would also suggest that most of the world, and this nation have been conditioned to believe the cynical are right today.

Truth is today we still have the power to stop the madness and create change. Truth is that if the government becomes corrupt; “We the People”, have the right to assemble and change the government; not by force of arms, rather by participating in our “self rule” process. I also suggest that one role of government is to protect the people from “out of control” big business. Again, I speak of a “Movement”. Again I am not suggesting violence or terrorism; today’s terrorists , for the most part are the ones wearing the suits and ties in the board rooms, on Wall street, in Congress, and at times in the White House, and many other countries. It’s time, time to fire or replace the bunch of them, both in government and business. It’s time we begin learning from the lessons presented from a corrupt establishment. It’s time to form a more perfect Union of free and prosperous people. It’s “Time for America to be great again for its people, (not that America isn’t great already); an America by and for the people; not corporations and the “Chosen few”. It’s time to bring equality and justice to people all over the world. Why can’t America export the idea that was our American Democratic Republic? This would be an “American Movement” that could save the world from a corporate sickness that is out to destroy the world for profit. You know what I’m talking about, corporate worships money and profit more than life.

I truly don’t see anything wrong with people assembling, marching, even demonstrating for change, or to be heard. As long as “We the People” do not become violent in our assembly. “Mohandas Gandhi proved in India that non-violence works better, and becomes more powerful as it moves. The concept of “civil and economic disobedience” as a vehicle for change against tyranny; nonviolence work so well.

I would hope America wakes up first rather than last. I also hope we unite against an oligarchy and corporate nightmare now, as anytime is a good time for a NON-violent revolution against any tyrannical agenda, even if it’s “Made in America”. It’s time to ACT as Action Changes Things.

2016 is a good time to change, just a thought:

This isn’t all we have AMERICA…


There are definitely many truly good people in this world; they choose to do as good as they can in everything that they think, say, and do. I think there are more good people than bad; problem is that the bad few seem to think they now own both the world and the people as they have taken most of the wealth. When will the “We the People” wake up to a well-planned American, and world take over by a few who are sick in their minds? When will America wake up to a corporatist coup to steal away our precious democratic republic? I’ve been called a lunatic for talking this way, but this proud American has been watching a sinister plan to destroy democracy and our democratic republic for years. I’m not trying to be a complainer a negative person, rather a realist.



American elections in 2016 are waking” We the People” up to a scam that will surely enslave us to a corporate nightmare; this was never intended by our founding fathers. The scam actually goes deeper than just the elections, the entire system that we live in is the problem. It’s a system that was formed long ago by an establishment whose main goal was to rule.



”We the People”, when divided as we are will help them succeed. Divided, we don’t stand a chance; they will succeed, but we still have a chance to stop the insanity that will enslave everyone in this country to a corporate conspiracy more sinister than the greatest dictators, empires, and monarchies could ever dream up. Our founding fathers never intended for this country to fall into such as a few seem bound to place us.



This isn’t the first time and probably won’t be the last that a banking, monetary scheme would be created to give control of America’s economy to the banks. Andrew Jackson pulled the charter of a bank called Bank of America because he didn’t feel it would be good for the country.    They successfully accomplished this in 1913 with the privately owned central bank we know as the “Federal Reserve”. Fact is, corporations and democracy don’t work well together.



Corporations are the truest form of one man rule when allowed to grow as corporations have in this country since the civil war. Our founding fathers evidently were aware of this; they developed one of the greatest ways to support democracy in government the world has ever known. They separated the powers of government and drafted rules to protect “We the People” and our republic from corporate greed and corruption. American government intended to stop corporations and to guarantee protection to “We the People” from both banks and corporations. Today’s multinational corporate monopolies and their money have all but destroyed those protections. They have even bribed our judicial branch and now are considered persons, with Citizens United they, and a few rich, are trying to buy our democratic elections.



Many have said as I will say now,” Our Republic is at risk; our freedoms, our liberties, our lives, and our right to pursue our happiness (as long as such pursuits do not create unnecessary harms on this country, the world, or people), is simply being destroyed for the greed of a few. I should say again that corporations allowed to run wild do not work well with democracies. Both have their place in our society, but a corporate Republic will never be an answer for a free people. In fact, most people would become sick to their stomach thinking that their freedom could be stolen away in such a cynical way, but, it’s happening right before our eyes. Social unrest seems to be the byproduct of such as George H Bush, Ronald Ragan, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Pres. Obama when unrestrained corporatism collides with a democratic, free people.



So why do I write this at this time? To say that our American problem will never be solved by either of the candidates, democratic or republican in 2016. Neither, as I have observed, will do any more than tell us they will while sending our country to ruin. They are both pathological liars, and corporatists. The media, both mainstream and alternative, constantly run stories exposing criminal acts. Both mainstream candidates popularity with the voters is lower than 51%. Both are trying to sway we free people into believing them while building just another establishment political machine. Both are surrounding themselves with the same billionaire class the establishment is all about. Neither seems to be any more than crooks and egomaniacs. I don’t see a prosperous future for “We the People” if either one becomes president.



You may say, we still have congress, if you think this you truly are the lunatic. Even our supreme court has become a nest of corporate thieves and scoundrels. I’m not saying that there are not honest representatives or justices, I am saying that they have become outnumbered by those who have sold “We the People” out.


We can, we will, and we must unite, stop arguing about two truly bad choices for president and clean our houses, both in Washington, and in the states. It simply is time, Bernie started a NON- violent revolution; it is for us to finish it. We don’t have to resort to violence, violence will just bring more violence. We can begin by not voting for either of the candidates presented on a bought and owned media. We can then use our constitutional right to express our grievances through civil and economic disobedience. But to vote for either of the mainstream candidates is to vote for another criminal establishment; and isn’t that what we want to get out of?



It’s not too late, it’s time America. Just a thought:

DocThis isn’t all we have AMERICA…

WAKE UP PEOPLE, the NON-violent revolution is here…


Unless things are done quickly, the time will come, and very soon, when no one now involved and living in this country, or the world, will have anything to say or do about its future. Large bodies do move slowly, but what we do between now and November 8 of 2016 will be immensely important for ourselves and our future generations.

There are those in positions of leadership that want to see a better world, and a better nation. There are more in leadership that do not want this. They are those that are payed tremendous amounts of money by a few who instruct them for what they want. These insidious people buy our leadership and the leadership for themselves; the world society is truly at risk. The well-being of the entire world and this country relies, and depends on” we the people” now more than any other time in mankind’s history.

Billions of people all over the planet ache for a better world. That “better world” will never be if their “new world order” becomes a reality. It is for that reason that leadership both in America, and around the world must change. Our world has been engulfed into two great wars, not a continent, not a race, had escaped the suffering and carnage. Leadership in its attempt to stay out of the hostilities ended up giving criminals and despots a means to completely enslave those they conquered.
Businesses all over the world I did well from the carnage. American leaders in business and banks saw their corporations do quite well through the funding of tyrannical dictatorships; and they still do. It should be obvious at that corporations and those who consider themselves elite have no true liking for most the people on this globe, or the planet itself. Truth is they just want the money that we generate; and they want more than anything else to control each and every one of us.

Today our world today seems ready to burst forth with new and even greater ferocity; it’s like a vicious volcanic cycle that has rolled on through generation upon generation. Leadership calls this progress. I question this, and say that our progress is only an illusion created by a few men’s ingenuity who seem bent on destruction for profit.

2016 will usher in presidential elections on November 8 when” We the People” will exercise our voting right and elect our next president and many of our representatives. I, for one find that I must question the ability of the majority of those running for the office of the president. It would seem that on one side hatriots rather than patriots rule. And on the other side patriots for a better world, and America standby while the insanity of the hatriots runs wild. I ask this question,” how can we have a world and a nation where sound reason prevails if our present system is allowed to live on?”

We are the ones who on our shoulders rest of the responsibility of a better world. Will we be responsible together for the best that we can be both as a nation and this world? Or will we be responsible for a dying world we now live in; the world our future generations will inherit.

I am reminded of an old poem that says it all for” we the people”. This old poem actually says that all for each and every one of us when it comes time to elect our leaders.
“ For want of a nail the shoe was lost,
for want of a shoe the horse was lost,
for want of a horse the writer was lost,
for want of a writer the battle was lost,
for the want of a battle the kingdom was lost,
and all for the want of a horseshoe now.”
We each and every one of us is the nail that will determine the future for us, the nation, and the world.

Through a bought and paid for Supreme Court, through a bought and paid for Congress; through the insidious, corrupt few even our elections are being rigged. By using rigged voting machines, machines that would flip votes, through gerrymandering and the buying of corrupt officials if we are not careful, and if we do not watch carefully America’s freedom, and a world of freedom may be sold to an oligarchy the world has never seen before. As was asked in my last blog,” patriotic or hatriot, which shall you be?”

Robert Louis Stevenson once said,” if your morals make you dreary, depend upon it they are wrong.” I would also add to this,” if your values are for greed, hatred, control or any other wrong, they should make you dreary. If the lust for control and power is your only driving force, then you will lead all who follow you into hellfire and darkness.”

Stevenson’s words did not mean that if your life is dull you should abandon any moral standards and seek your happiness in self-indulgence. They remind us all that the true goodness in life is the joyful living of life for us all equally. The courageous of us live with morals that are of a higher value. Those running for president and those running for seats in Congress would do good to display higher values and morals. Of all the candidates now running for president there is only one today that would seem to have those higher values and morals.

It will be up to us who will lead us, and we should bear the shame or the glory for what we will allow in leadership. Simply said,” We the People” will either form a more perfect union, or destroy completely what our founding fathers created in our declaration of independence.

I will close this by saying that the corporate real world will never allow for freedom to live. In fact the only difference between corporatism and National Socialism are the words. I for one will choose life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, I will choose freedom.

Just a thought,

Patriot…Hatriot…which will you be?

clock by danielsinoca_com

George C Marshall, a general from WWll, once said” We must take the nations of the world as they are, the human passions and prejudices of peoples as they exist, and find some way to secure a peaceful world.”
The former Secretary of State made this statement when he was still a military leader; today every American citizen, and the world should think of what it actually means. We must learn to live together notwithstanding a person’s color, religious beliefs, political beliefs, their education, or wealth, or anything else that would make them different in the eyes of the beholder. If we don’t we will most definitely die together!

As it is, “We the People” have been cunningly divided into groups of ‘hatriots”, hating the president, the poor and homeless; hating women, hating liberals, conservatives, hating those of color, and different religious beliefs, and more. A few “to rich”, corporate monopolies, and religious zealot’s”, with their dirty money and influence has, so far, done a good job creating the divides in “We the People”, both in America and the world today. I see and hear more hatriots each day. What gets me is they say they are patriots.

Americans especially, have come to the point of taking little thoughts and making them big problems. We have been brainwashed by this small organized group of people who consider themselves elite. Now it is accepted to hate those whose ideologies disagree with theirs. Well,” Life is too short to be little.” These wise words were spoken by Benjamin Disraeli, a conservative politician and writer in England. They should also be taken seriously. Life is too short to be little, and although important in their own right, all the differing opinions are of little consequence to people as a whole. When allowed to they simply create the hate that divides us all for easy conquer and control.

Harmony and teamwork between us all can only be found by accepting that we all have the right to disagree; that there will always be differences between us, and a true patriot of America’s basic rights would embrace the differences between us and agree that it was okay to be different. We live on this earth, for only a few decades; and we lose many irreplaceable hours worrying, or hating over injustices that, in a year’s time, will be forgotten. Why not apply our lives to worthwhile thoughts and actions or feelings; to real love’s; to the best of our “living life experience”? “Life is too short to be little” for any of we “human animals”. Why be little in our thoughts, words, or actions; it’s dangerous, especially in our overstressed country and world today.

We often allow ourselves to be upset by small things we should forget. Perhaps someone we helped has become ungrateful, someone we believed to be a friend has taken advantage of us; someone we depended on and trusted has shown they cannot be trusted, a reward we deserved has been denied us. We can feel such frustrations so strongly that we find it hard to work or sleep. Now, isn’t that irrational?

I’m not a Democrat or a Republican, I’m not on the left, or the right, I am both a conservative and liberal, depending on what I have to give both in material goods and spiritual. I’m an American and damned awful proud of that. America has become completely abstract and confused about what why where and how it will remain the greatest country and experiment the world has ever known.

I see America in a battle, not between political parties, not between a free people and its government; rather a battle between “We the People” a few extremely rich people and corporate monopolies. I see a wrong that grows every day, not between the haves and have-nots; rather a battle between those that have too much and expect to take even more from the people they have already taken too much from.

I listened to a gentleman speaking who inspired the writing that I’m doing here today. He said the best patriot is not a hatriot. Rather the best patriot is one who can embrace helping those less fortunate. America has become a nation divided more than Americans working together, of “takers” rather than makers. What ever happened to the givers?

Any intelligent effort to live in a nation, or world, of liberty and freedom for all must start with the ideal and promise of equality. To be a patriot doesn’t mean that one has to hate another because they are different, to be a hatriot on the other hand does. Harmony and cooperation between us all can only be found by accepting that different is good and a true patriot of the world and all its countries, including America would embrace the differences between us and agree that it was okay. In fact it’s good to be different. After all, diversity is the lubricant creation uses to create.

Life, although not little is full of little things; full of small pains and petty grievances which little remedies can cure. A true patriot would embrace both the little and big things as challenges that can make both the world, and America great. Challenges like the greed that spawns hatred, or the ignorance bad politicians, bad corporate leadership, bad religious leadership, and bad media spin off can be changed by a united, free people. Following the bad as truth will never have a peaceful, sustainable, abundant answer for our world. They will, on the other hand, continue to divide “We the People” for greedy, hateful, corrupt leadership to plunder. And “We the People” and the world slip into the abyss of endless suffering and fear.

It’s the small blows to our self-esteem, the indignities; the little jewels to our vanity which cause half the heartaches in the world. Half of the cases in our criminal courts, are offenses originating in little things; barroom brawls, domestic wrangling’s, and insulting remarks or disparaging words, rude actions; little things that often lead to assault and murder. If ordinary civility; the courtesy we expect to be shown to us were extended to every person with whom we come into contact in our daily lives, it would be a real contribution to human brother and sisterhood.

I am a firm believer in the “human being” that lives within the “human animal”; the majority of us don’t want to hurt anything, or hate anything. We simply pray for and pursue abundant happiness in a secure world, and America; is that so little? It’s your choice to be either a patriot or a hatriot. So instead of falling for the hatriots creed, stand together strong as one voice for change for a better world and nation. America is still the best place to live.

America was formed on three moral principles; life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. America was formed on the value of equality for all, not just white European immigrants. Be a patriot of both this great country and the world; be a patriot for change for the betterment of us all equally. Allow the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness to everyone as long as happiness does not destroy life or this wonderful planet needlessly.

Just a thought:
