Anymore You can think Of?
Increasingly I have become more and more disturbed about the people globally who are being persecuted "for their words". Since when do we charge and incarcerate people for writing?. The concept of terrorism in the heat of anger-I outta kill you, he screams. Suddenly the police show up and arrest you for terrorist threats. A women writes about something she feels is wrong-Bridget Bardo-and she is found guilty of inciting hatred. How does one incite hatred?
I think that people who hate, do it of there own choosing.
When we can no longer express ourselves for fear of recriminations isn't that called repression?.
Didn't Freedom of speech have something to do with our fundamental rights?
Maybe I'm old but I thought the right to say something was important.
The War on Our Civil Liberties (2004)
"A documentary that investigates the ways in which the civil liberties of American citizens
and immigrants have been rolled back since the September 11 and the Patriot Act." -imdb.com

This Blog is dedicated to the millions of young men who never came home.
And my two sons, who I am very proud of,who through the Grace of God-Did get home
Scientists have predicted:
A world population of 9,309,051,539 By 2050
Oil supplies will end at some point
All our agriculture depends on fertilizers made from oil.
Millions are already starving to death globally
Land use is totally destroying natural habitat globally
Global warming is increasing ,tornados,hurricanes,floods and other natural disasters.
Clean drinking water is more and more difficult to obtain everywhere.
Open land except for parks and agriculture is becoming non-existant.
More and More people will die from disease because of poor sanitation and lack of fresh water.
Global economies are dependant on consumption, yet that very thing is what is destroying the planet.
The only REAL solutions:
Mandatory sterilization, Fixed number of children,mandatory abortions.
Oil use dictated by need and supply,fixed travel allotments
Mandatory requirements of eco sustainable lifestyles, similar to the indian.
Mandatory implementation of green technology
The demise of the personal automobile
The end of democracy as we know it.
Forced pollution control on ALL manufacturing.
Forced lifestyle implementation-ie, you live where and how you are told.
Routine execution of the old,handicapped,mentally ill and everyone else who provides nothing.
If population increases do not stop the above senerio is not just possible but probable. It will happen out of the desire of our species to survive. Or perhaps it will all end due to wars waged for natural resources. Rats eat each other out of lack of space and food.
All that can be done is change-change your lifestyle,change your habits,change your expectations.
It will not matter to me, I will be dead
But my children and grand children will be here-I pity them, all I can offer is hope-But I fear it is empty hope.
The human race has lost its way.
Yes sadly the world is replete with more doom and gloom. It is extending to every facet of human life and every nation. From economic hardship, to the very serious problems of global warming. I have been writing for years trying to get people to open there eyes. My blog is full of messages written as much as 15 years ago, trying to get people to take action.
But in this holiday season there are some reasons for hope.
Today a global warming conferance has taken significant steps towards addressing the problem.
With a new presidential election soon to take place we have a real opportunity to elect someone who is willing to make sacrifices for the greater public good. And the candidates to fullfill the promise.
Technology is advancing at record breaking pace to try and solve the current and future issues we face as a species.
Awarenesss and the desire to "do something" is gaining momentum
Hundreds of thousands here in America are demanding a return to the fundamental principles of the constitution and American democracy.
The protection of global animal species has taken on a renewed interest, and action is taking place instead of just talk.
Though the path is still unclear the american and foreign auto makers are desperately working for solutions to american dependance on foreign oil.
Green technology is growing, and the uses expanding.
The message about human rights and dignity expands with the ever increasing functionality and spread of the internet.
The internet has provided a forum for people like you and I, bypassing the political restraints and negative capital issues which affect free speech, the right to know, and political agenda.
So there is HOPE Charlie, a form of hope I havn't felt in a very long time.
I wish you and your family a wonderful and Joyous Holiday Season!
And a prayer that 2008 will be the year history records as the year the world woke up.
To Move Forward-
Sometimes You Have To Look
Give Peace A Chance!
