MEDITATION (Existence Has A Sound)

Humans are an extension of this universe. Our physical bodies are comprised of known elements of this universe on a molecular and atomic level. Our bodies are animated by that ’life spark‘(or soul) unique to each of us.
Upon entering this existence(birth) a vibration(sound) is initiated in everyone.

Shrinking Business Down to Size

A Capital Idea Part 51: Shrinking Business Down to Size

Our political system has been designed to favor big business for many years, regardless of what politicians may say. After all, it has been big business which has been writing the rules, or rather, lack of rules. This has led to the dysfunctional state of current economics in the United States and much of the world, by extension. It is incumbent upon us, the citizens, to undo this monopolistic system, for the good of everybody.

Are these gold commercials really necessary?

Thom...OK, I couldn't agree more with your assessment of the wacked right and their stochastic terrorism...but as an aside, what does your show, Ed Schultz's show, and various other radio shows on the socially responsible side of the radio get out of advertising gold? Granted, they aren't the indicted criminal companies advertising on other shows, but how much money do the gold merchants pay, that you and others choose to engage in selling (even moderately) the paranoia and fear of total societal collapse, and the fake solution that owning gold would somehow be advisable?

Detroit vs Hiroshima 65 years later

Ran into this reference from another user group. A photo essay comparing two cities:

This is Obama’s America

I’ll probably get a lot of flack for this post, but I got too many questions and there seems to be an elephant in the room regarding the recent shooting.

Righties don't need no stinking facts! They prevent honest debates. The last several years clearly show this.

Stonewall Jackson, a Confederate soldier in the Civil War said: "Always mystify, mislead and surprise the enemy if possible." Those tactics are effective in war and in peace, if all one cares about is winning the argument for the short run.

Life's Trap and the Way Out of It

An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

I've always thought that most of the good things that come an individual's way are not entirely of their own making. The right equates such an emphasis to "Socialism", a hackneyed misrepresentation that resonates with the fear inherent in the spectre of a government that completely owns the means of production, rather than merely regulating it.

Recall that Mayor Schricker was photographed with Carole Lombard just before her plane crashed leaving Fort Wayne.

Palin's Crosshairs

Crosshairs are placed on people. Map symbols are placed on maps. It’s a pretty simple concept, really.

1938 Polk's City Directory Evidence

The Standard Building, now called The Elektron Building is located at 215-217 Berry Street, Fort Wayne. It was, in its day, "The Standard of Fort Wayne," for excellence in business and law.

1938 is significant to The Kryder Company as the incorporation year of its subsidiary, The Standard Building Company of Fort Wayne, Indiana, Inc., shortly before The Walt Disney Company, Inc.

In terms of the world, it marked the merging of Austria into Germany.

Bankers and Politicians Colluded to Strip Middle Class of their Assets

The evidence is clear, I said it when it happened in a seventy page dissertation I sent to the White House and posted all over the Internet. That is to say, ‘clearly we have all been defrauded by our own government.’ They worked in sync with world and local bankers, while powerful lobbyist representing corporate interest fueled the diabolical plan to ruin and strip the middle class of their livelihoods, dignity and the security they once could provide their families.

The Biggie-size HELMKE Lie

Now that I am forced to see Paul Helmke grimacing commentary on my tv screen, it is time to illustrate document by document, year by year, exactly what Paul's father, attorney Walter P. Helmke and his Fort Wayne associates did to The Kryder Family, The Evans Trust and others, with their biggie-size estate lies and inbred Fort Wayne, Allen County City/County Complex adjacent to Freimann Square.

Why access to higher education should be available to all who qualify

(With an Irish blessing for all)

"His name was Fleming, and he was a poor Scottish farmer. One day, while trying to make a living for his family, he heard a cry for help coming from a nearby bog. He dropped his tools and ran to the bog. There, mired to his waist in black muck, was a terrified boy, screaming and struggling to free himself. Farmer Fleming saved the lad from what could have been a slow and terrifying death.

Gunman Entered Courthouse Exit

Fort Lauderdale, FL

A distraught man walked right through the exit doors of the Broward County Courthouse lobby yesterday. then produced a gun which he held to his neck. It was unnoticed by security personnel until the man seated himself in front of the elevators with the gun pointed at himself. The lobby was full of lawyers, stenographers, and people being sued or going to trial, as well as numerous Broward Sheriff personnel. There were no security officers posted at the exit doors.


This news is absolutely outrageous! Giving my beloved Oregon a 'D' regarding 'sex trafficking'? I can assure you that most of that sort of stuff isn't going on here in the Portland area - the Valley of Sickness, but it may go on about 158.3 miles west of here, well off into international waters. Although, if asked, "I don't recall."Those GPS devices we have are pretty damn accurate you know, and when it says '69', it means exactly '69 miles'-

Who Should an Economy Serve?

The top one percent own half of all the world's assets. In stark contrast, the bottom fifty percent of the world owns less than one percent. According to the 2014 Global Wealth Report from Credit Suisse, global inequality has surged since the 2008 financial collapse. The report explains that while global wealth has more than doubled since the year 2000, the vast majority of overall growth has gone to those who were already wealthy.
