People grow through experience
if they meet life honestly and courageously.
This is how character is built.

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) The Hualapai Tribe has renewed a ban on uranium mining on its land near the Grand Canyon, joining other American Indian tribes in opposing what they see as a threat to their environment and their culture.

The tribal ban adds to a temporary mining ban on nearly 1 million federally owned acres around the Grand Canyon. The combined actions mean uranium-bearing lands in northern Arizona open to companies hungry to resume mining are growing scarce.

HOW many times... in the HISTORY of ABUSE of the "NATIVE" INDIAN... has the LANDS of these PEOPLE been put to VIOLATIONS as well as these WONDERFUL AMAZING LIVES!

The INDIAN Lands... swindled from them, extorted from them... and than after a PREMISE of a "TREATY" by USA government in coerce signing by INDIAN PEOPLE who had been TORTURED, TERRORIZED, MURDERED, HUNTED down, and in other unimaginable ways VIOLATED... the VERY LANDS on "THE "WHITE MAN's PAPER" WORD AND VOW" were than OBSTRUCTED to the INDIAN... and TAKEN with VIOLATIONS to THE INDIANS once again... when OIL, when GOLD etc was "found".




THE FACT IS ALL PEOPLE OF EVERY NATION OUGHT TO BE ALARMED, OUTRAGED and INTOLERANT of TREACHERY TO THE INDIAN LIVES! AND THIS INCLUDES further attempts of the USA in any capacity to further make attempts on THEIR LAND... !


WOULD any NATION among ALL OUR NATIONS... inclusive the USA... tolerate SUCH TERRORISM as the USA has PUMMELED upon INDIAN LIVES! I say "NO!"


FACE THE FACTS THAT APOLOGY IS LONG OVER DUE... PUBLIC APOLOGY!
TO THE INDIAN PEOPLE!
...along with MUSH WORK of RESTITUTION for the VISCIOUS WRONGS DONE TO THESE PEOPLE!


THE USA will find itself "WATCHED" by EVERY NATION... and for it's ABUSES of THE INDIAN and WHATEVER OTHER AREAS OF TYRANNY and TYRANCY the USA attempts to exaggerate power... UNTIL THE NATIONS HAVE HAD ENOUGH!
THAN the SANCTIONS will COME QUICKLY... THAN there will be great repercussions ON THE USA itself, on the USA businesses involved... and ACCOUNTABILITY WILL NOT BE ANY LONGER ESCAPABLE!


IT IS FAR BETTER THING... to BE A NATION... and A PEOPLE... that ACKNOWLDEGES WRONG DOING... and ...WITH GREAT DILIGENCE LABORS to UNDO the WRONGS DONE as much as is POSSIBLE to ACHIEVE (for one matter --- one cannot REPLACE the LIVES murdered... of the INDIAN) ... TO MAKE AMENDS that can be MADE... TO OWN UP to RESPONSIBILITY!

AND do so before IT IS NOT NEGOTIABLE to attempt such any longer!

THAT IS WISDOM.
THAT IS A JUST LIFE's INTEGRITY and CHARACTER...
thus IS THE DIVINE CHARACTER OF ALL NATIONS of MERIT!


AT LEAST of the PEOPLE that the USA itself insists on as "upon land of the USA" within the CONTINENANTL USA... it is CONTINUED CHARACTER of the INDIAN PEOPLE... to REFUSE ABUSE of the ENVIRONMENT!

WHY aren't the CHURCH GOING Christians, those of the USA... having WORKS that STATE TO us ONE AND ALL... the same LEVEL of INTEGRITY! It is overdue.


I am ASHAMED of the churches across the USA... with their RELIGIOUS intent... and LACK OF EFFORTS to LABOR to SECURE SUCH MATTERS AS NEVER AGAIN VIOLENCE to even one LIFE! YOU FIND GAY CITIZENS, INDIAN PEOPLE, BUDDHISTS and others MARCHING, WRITING PETITIONS, WORKING DILIGENTLY to END VIOLENCE and other OPPRESSIVE DEVICES of TERRORISM committed by USA citizens upon USA citizens and or ANY OTHER NATION of PEOPLE by USA citizens!
WHY are the MASSIVE numbers of "CHRISTIANS" of the USA... NOT LABORING DILIGENTLY to SECURE TO WOMEN : EQUALITY, JUST WAGES, NEVER AGAIN ABUSE BY HUSBAND... NEVER TOLERATED WHATSOEVER, NO TOLERANCE OF RAPE of FEMALE POPULATION (albeit the GREATER NUMBER of RAPISTS across the USA by USA statistics are THE HETERO males and their VICTIMS are FEMALE LIVES!!!) in any of THE TERRORISTIC VIOLENCE that RAPE IS! etc


WHERE are the CHRISTIAN PEOPLE "UNITED" to INSIST NEVER TOLERANCE OF "dirty cops"!!!


WHERE are the CHRISTIAN PEOPLE "UNITED" with NO TOLERANCE of the PRISONS of the USA "entitled" to VIOLATE LIVES THERE!!!


WHERE are the CHRISTIAN PEOPLE "UNITED" across the USA to END THESE otherwise "ACCEPTABLE USA PRACTISES" of TREACHERY against USA CITIZENS LIVES... !

WHERE?


WHERE are the CHRISTIAN PEOPLE "UNITED" in GREAT PAIN STAKING LABOR TO ENSURE THAT every PRISON has been INVESTIGATED... across the USA... and THE INNOCENT WRONGLY INCARCERATED ARE FREED with GREAT APOLOGY... AS OUGHT ONE OF CHARACTER and having a GOOD RELATIONSHIHP WITH ALMIGHTY GOD!

THE BELOVED of Our HISTORIES... Geronimo, Hatshepsut, the Roosevelts, HAPATIA, Joan of ARC, the PHAROAH Who EMBRACED Joseph of EGYPT and STAVED OFF FAMINE that would have BROUGHT DEATH AMONG OTHER PLAGUE TO MASSES, Deborah and Jael... and many many other PROFOUND LIVES among them Princess Diana!

WHAT of THE DUTY of EACH OF us... EVERY NATION... to UPHOLD Just TREATMENT.

...I am familiar with the fact ROME insisted that the religion "Christian" BE ROMAN... the CHRISTIAN RELIGION, ROME FORCED this RELIGION of ROME's onto PEOPLE... and ROME such a MENACING TREACHEROUS VILE AND CORRUPTED NATION that EAGERLY TORTURED MURDERED TERRORIZED NATIONS OF PEOPLE... soon found itself DESTROYED ENTIRELY!

In the very "BIBLE" that is "CELEBRATED" among "CHRISTIAN" religion... is a story of a BELOVED FRIEND OF GOD... name of JEREMIAH...
JEREMIAH was WRONGLY INPRISONED!
Inprisoned for the fact that JEREMIAH stated there MUST COME IMPROVEMENT!
IT IS NOT NEGOTIABLE... IS NOT OPTIONAL!
JEREMIAH... stated that DUTY TO ALL LIVES was THE DEMAND and MUST COME!

Jeremiah's VIOLATED LIFE is "spoken of" in that "CHRISTIAN" folded "bible" as he was TREACHEROUSLY TREATED for NO CRIME... and LEFT IN A PRISON.


THE USA, every CITIZEN of the USA... OWES to ALL PEOPLE... RIGHT LIVING!

CERTAINLY the INDIAN PEOPLE... like the WRONGLY ACCUSED IN PRISONS... like the FEMALE LIVES ignored and CONTINUED as the VICTIMIZED by TERRORISTIC RAPE among other USA practises by its HETERO male population... AND OTHER CRIMES of the USA that EASILY so very LONG AGO would have NOT EXISTED THIS DAY THIS HOUR... to be NOW IN OUR PRESCENCE... to ACKNOWLEDGE and to BRING to a SCREECHING HALT! ...MUST BE CEASED!


The battle for the individual rights of women
is one of long standing
and
none of us should countenance anything which undermines it.
Eleanor Roosevelt


FAR BETTER that the PEOPLE of the USA... DEMAND this.
FAR FAR BETTER that the PEOPLE of the USA... LABOR with all DILIGENCE and SECURE this.

DUTY is not a "selection from one's closet" of WHAT to DAWN of one's day!


Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events;
small minds discuss people.
Eleanor Roosevelt


I cannot think that we are useless or God would not have created us. There is one God looking down on us all. We are all the children of one God. The sun, the darkness, the winds are all listening to what we have to say.
Geronimo

They took all the trees
And put them in a tree museum
And they charged all the people
A dollar and a half just to see'em.
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
Till it's gone.
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot.
Joni Mitchell, Big Yellow Taxi

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.

I don't know anything about the new mining methods but it will still produce waste and I doubt that the company will keep to its word regarding cleanup. Even if it dies, there is no guarantee that every single scrap of contamination will be properly cleaned up.

I think that the Indians have been through enough with the government HELPING them. All that has done for them amounts to slums to live in and archaic living conditions .It is always the same, and look what the government has done. Animals struggling to get off the endangered list, are being hunted down & shot at from helicopters, land is being dug up and sewage is being dumped there and covered over, only to reappear years later as a toxic dump. The government will have to repay for all the damage it has done, unfortunately, by that time it will be too late.

I think it would be a grande idea for the entire indian
nations to go on a full scale riot to get what has
been taken from them..........
This country was theirs, is theirs.

Others have rioted and got their way. Haven't they???????
