Hey Folks,
Dog blest us by Rocking Down angels from the Promised Land in more ways then one. Rock and Roll are the 7 Pearls of Thunder kept secret in Revelation 10. You can also see the last advice to John in Revelation 22:10-11 was basically Let It Be.

The Worker Ownership of Mondragon, the Unions could make work here in America in no time. If only DC or Stave govt. would give the Unions the power to work out all the details. Things like, worker owners getting 90% of the profits. That would surely help fix with pensions, which would help S.S. and or health care too.
But I also want 80% of the profits from the TV to go to the Cities, Counties and States, for health care and or Social Security. The same as the oil, telephone and big pharm-med.
But we would also have to switch over 50% of the Guns and Bombs budget to build the electric car we can plug into our solar powered roofs. Which would put generations to work on something useful!

“History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and it’s issuance.” James Madison (1751-1836), President. 




From Ash Trent THE LOST SON 



"A young widower, who loved his five year old son very much, was away on business when bandits came who burned down the whole village and took his son away. When the man returned, he saw the ruins and panicked. They took the burnt corpse of an infant to be his son and cried uncontrollably. He organized a cremation ceremony, collected the ashes and put them in a beautiful little bag which he always kept with him.
Soon after-wards, his real son escaped from the bandits and found his way home. He arrived at his father's new cottage at midnight and knocked at the door. The father, still grieving asked: "Who is it?" The child answered, it is me papa, open the door!" But in his agitated state of mind, convinced his son was dead, the father thought that some young boy was making fun of him. He shouted: "Go away" and continued to cry. After some time, the child left.
Father and son never saw each other again."
After this story, the Buddha said: "Sometime, somewhere, you take something to be the truth. If you cling to it so much, even when the truth comes in person and knocks on your door, you will not open it."

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood. Article 1.UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS

Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, color, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty. Article 2.UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS


Great advances in man`s knowledge are always accepted at first by those very few who have the courage to question old accepted premises, and the depth of intellect to understand that which provides greater understanding. The majority are content to cling comfortably to the old until it has all but crumbled around them. Man is now incredibly close to the greatest changes ever witnessed. To witness these changes with the safety of understanding means that we must question many of our accepted theories and be prepared to accept that which seems to provide greater clarity

The metaphysical, the consciousness of man, is about to be separated from its physical surrounds for a brief period of change and renewal. The man who identifies with and understands only the physical energies will experience ignorance and agony. Those who can step away will be the observers and under standers of change, and will experience the heights of the civilization to follow

"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."

Thomas Jefferson, (Attributed)
3rd president of US (1743 - 1826)___
Lincoln's Monetary Breakthrough

The bankers had Lincoln's government over a barrel, just as Wall Street has Congress in its vice-like grip today. The North needed money to fund a war, and the bankers were willing to lend it only under circumstances that amounted to extortion, involving staggering interest rates of 24 to 36 percent. Lincoln saw that this would bankrupt the North and asked a trusted colleague to research the matter and find a solution. In what may be the best piece of advice ever given to a sitting President, Colonel Dick Taylor of Illinois reported back that the Union had the power under the Constitution to solve its financing problem by printing its money as a sovereign government. Taylor said:

“Just get Congress to pass a bill authorizing the printing of full legal tender treasury notes . . . and pay your soldiers with them and go ahead and win your war with them also. If you make them full legal tender . . . they will have the full sanction of the government and be just as good as any money; as Congress is given that express right by the Constitution.”
 


"Gentlemen, I have had men watching you for a long time and I am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter, I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves. I intend to rout you out, and by the Eternal God, I will rout you out." -- Andrew Jackson



An avidity to punish is always dangerous to liberty. It leads men to stretch, to misinterpret, and to misapply even the best of laws. He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates his duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself." --Thomas Paine




'There is no means of avoiding the final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as the result of voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion, or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved. ''-Ludwig von Mises,1949





What you do not make free will never grow.  The idea that you can make others grow and help their growth, that you can direct and guide them, always retaining for your self the Freedom of the Teacher, is NONSENSE, a Dangerous LIE which has retarded the growth of millions and millions of Human Beings in the World.  Let Man have the Light of Liberty.  That is the only condition for growth...Loyalty to petrified opinion has never yet broke a chain or freed a Human Soul.” -~Samuel Clemons




"When shall it be said in any country of the world, my poor are happy; neither ignorance or distress is to be found among them; my jails are empty of prisoners, my streets of beggars; the aged are not in want, the taxes are not oppressive...when these things can be said, then may that country boast of its constitution and government." 
~ Thomas Paine

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, — go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!”  -~Samual Adams






Somebody said that it couldn’t be done,


But, he with a chuckle replied


That "maybe it couldn’t," but he would be one



Who wouldn’t say so till he’d tried.


So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin



O
n his face. If he worried he hid it.



He started to sing as he tackled the thing


That couldn’t be done, and he did it.


Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you’ll never do that;


At least no one has done it";



But he took off his coat and he took off his hat,


And the first thing we knew he’d begun it.


With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,


Without any doubting or quiddit,


He started to sing as he tackled the thing


That couldn’t be done, and he did it.


There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,


There are thousands to prophesy failure;



There are thousands to point out to you one by one, 


The dangers that wait to assail you.


But just buckle it in with a bit of a grin,
Just take off your coat and go to it;



Just start to sing as you tackle the thing


That "couldn’t be done," and you’ll do it.




DO NOT GO GENTLE INTO 
THAT GOOD NIGHT




Do not go gentle into that good night, 


Old age should burn and rage at close of day; 


Rage, rage against the dying of the light.


Though wise men at their end know dark is right, 


Because their words had forked no lightning they 


Do not go gentle into that good night.



Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright 


Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay, 


Rage, rage against the dying of the light.



Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight, 


And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way, 


Do not go gentle into that good night.



Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight 


Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay, 


Rage, rage against the dying of the light.



And you, my father, there on the sad height, 


Curse, bless me now with your fierce tears, I pray. 


Do not go gentle into that good night. 


Rage, rage against the dying of the light.



Dylan Thomas

"Warriors of the Rainbow"




There was an old lady, from the "Cree" tribe, 
named "Eyes of Fire", 
who prophesied that one day, because of the white mans' 
or Yo-ne-gis' greed, there would come a time, when the 
fish would die in the streams, the birds would fall from 
the air, the waters would be blackened, and the trees 
would no longer be, mankind as we would 
know it, would all but cease to exist.




There would come a time when the "keepers of the legend, 
stories, culture rituals, and myths, 
and all the Ancient Tribal Customs" 
would be needed to restore us to health. 
They would be mankinds’ key to survival, 
they were the "Warriors of the Rainbow".




There would come a day of awakening 
when all the peoples of all the tribes 
would form a New World of Justice, Peace, 
Freedom and recognition of the Great Spirit.




The "Warriors of the Rainbow" would spread these messages and 
teach all peoples of the Earth or "Elohi". They would teach them 
how to live the "Way of the Great Spirit". 
They would tell them of how the world today 
has turned away from the Great Spirit 
and that is why our Earth is "Sick".




The "Warriors of the Rainbow" would show the peoples that 
this "Ancient Being" (the Great Spirit), is full of love 
and understanding, and teach them 
how to make the "Earth or Elohi" beautiful again.




These Warriors would give the people principles or rules 
to follow to make their path right with the world. 
These principles would be those of the Ancient Tribes. 
The Warriors of the Rainbow would teach the people of the 
ancient practices of Unity, Love and Understanding. They would 
teach of Harmony among people in all four comers of the Earth.




Like the Ancient Tribes, they would teach the people 
how to pray to the Great Spirit with love that 
flows like the beautiful mountain stream, 
and flows along the path to the ocean of life. 
Once again, they would be able 
to feel joy in solitude and in councils.




They would be free of petty jealousies and love all mankind 
as their brothers, regardless of color, race or religion. 
They would feel happiness enter their hearts, and become 
as one with the entire human race.




Their hearts would be pure and radiate warmth, understanding 
and respect for all mankind, Nature, and the Great Spirit. 
They would once again fill their minds, hearts, souls, 
and deeds with the purest of thoughts. 
They would seek the beauty 
of the Master of Life - the Great Spirit! 
They would find strength and beauty in prayer 
and the solitudes of life.




Their children would once again be able to run free 
and enjoy the treasures of Nature and Mother Earth. 
Free from the fears of toxins and destruction, 
wrought by the Yo-ne-gi and his practices of greed.




The rivers would again run clear, the forests be abundant 
and beautiful, the animals and birds would be replenished.
The powers of the plants and animals would again be respected 
and conservation of all that is beautiful 
would become a way of life.




The poor, sick and needy would be cared for by 
their brothers and sisters of the Earth. 
These practices would again become a part of their daily lives.




The leaders of the people would be chosen in the old way 
- not by their political party, or who could speak the loudest, 
boast the most, or by name calling or mud slinging, 
but by those whose actions spoke the loudest.




Those who demonstrated their love, wisdom, and courage and 
those who showed that they could and did work for the good of all, 
would be chosen as the leaders or Chiefs. 
They would be chosen by their "quality" and not the 
amount of money they had obtained. Like the thoughtful 
and devoted "Ancient Chiefs", 
they would understand the people with love, 
and see that their young were educated 
with the love and wisdom of their surroundings. 
They would show them that miracles 
can be accomplished to heal this world of its ills, 
and restore it to health and beauty.




The tasks of these "Warriors of the Rainbow" are many and great. 
There will be terrifying mountains of ignorance to conquer
and they shall find prejudice and hatred. 
They must be dedicated, unwavering in their strength, 
and strong of heart. They will find willing hearts 
and minds that will follow them on this road 
of returning "Mother Earth" to beauty and plenty - once more.




The day will come, it is not far away. 
The day that we shall see how we owe our 
very existence to the people of all tribes that have 
maintained their culture and heritage. 
Those that have kept the rituals, 
stories, legends, and myths alive. It will be with this knowledge, 
the knowledge that they have preserved, 
that we shall once again return 
to "harmony" with Nature, Mother Earth, and mankind. It will be 
with this knowledge that we shall find our "Key to our Survival".




This is the story of the "Warriors of the Rainbow" and this is 
my reason for protecting the culture, heritage, and knowledge 
of my ancestors. 
I know that the day "Eyes of Fire" spoke of - will come! 
I want my children and grandchildren 
to be prepared to accept this task. 
The task of being one of the 
"Warriors of the Rainbow".




Lelanie Fuller Anderson "The Cherokee Lady", 
relates the above story that her grandmother 
told her when she was a young girl.
