Toward Soviet America ? | An Appeal to Learn from the Mistakes of the Past


                This is a comment in response to a very interesting take on America by Xavier Lerma of Pravda posted on Liberty Newswire. It is easy to forget the past and to keep on persisting forward illogically, but there is quiet plainly a lot that needs to be learnt from history, not just our own but theirs as well. I apologize to many of my liberal friends reading this and especially those who work in the media industry. I believe that one can really learn a lot no matter where they are from, in that you have grown and done really well as directed and instructed to successfully propagate and promote all the many strong sentiments to the contrary and to give shape and power to this blinding and overpowering fanaticism over the last few years. It is indeed really hurtful and baffling to be labelled illiterate. I'd like to think and imagine that perhaps being gullible, irrational and willing is what has portrayed us with an otherwise undeserving, uncharacteristic and shameful identity such as this.

My response to the article,


                   "Whatever concept one may hold, from a metaphysical point of view, concerning the freedom of the will, certainly its appearances, which are human actions, like every other natural event, are determined by universal laws. However obscure their causes, history, which is concerned with narrating these appearances, permits us to hope that if we attend to the play of freedom of the human will in the large, we may be able to discern a regular movement in it, and that what seems complex and chaotic in the single individual may be seen from the standpoint of the human race as a whole to be a steady and progressive though slow evolution of its original endowment." 
~ Immanuel Kant.
Taken from, "Idea for a Universal History from a Cosmopolitan Point of View" (1784)

             Perhaps it ought to be considered more of a concise summary and a gist, outlining the World's perspective of this country and the tough times and challenging position it finds itself in. Strong Words of Advice and more importantly a very well defined Warning to all the powers that usurp Freedom and dare to prevail against Free men. The only thing a lot of Americans would do well to read over and over again is what Putin said regarding the military, "...instead of solving the problem, militarization pushes it to a deeper level. It draws away from the economy immense financial and material resources, which could have been used much more efficiently elsewhere." , he has all the backing this country and the NWO can never even imagine or dream of at this stage. They hate what happened to them in their painful history and they rarely ever try to conceal the facts, their pain or their shame..... It's only beneficial and apt that such voices of solidarity and concern be heard.

"Mankind is so much the same, in all times and places, that history informs us of nothing new or strange in this particular. Its chief use is only to discover the constant and universal principles of human nature." 
~ David Hume

Here's the original post as seen on Pravda,

            "Putin in 2009 outlined his strategy for economic success. Alas, poor Obama did the opposite but nevertheless was re-elected. Bye, bye Miss American Pie. The Communists have won in America with Obama but failed miserably in Russia with Zyuganov who only received 17% of the vote. Vladimir Putin was re-elected as President keeping the NWO order out of Russia while America continues to repeat the Soviet mistake.

After Obama was elected in his first term as president the then Prime Minister of Russia, Vladimir Putin gave a speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland in January of 2009. Ignored by the West as usual, Putin gave insightful and helpful advice to help the world economy and saying the world should avoid the Soviet mistake.

Recently, Obama has been re-elected for a 2nd term by an illiterate society and he is ready to continue his lies of less taxes while he raises them. He gives speeches of peace and love in the world while he promotes wars as he did in Egypt, Libya and Syria. He plans his next war is with Iran as he fires or demotes his generals who get in the way.

"Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it." 
~ George Santayana 

Putin said regarding the military,

"...instead of solving the problem, militarization pushes it to a deeper level. It draws away from the economy immense financial and material resources, which could have been used much more efficiently elsewhere."

Well, any normal individual understands that as true but liberalism is a psychosis . O'bomber even keeps the war going along the Mexican border with projects like "fast and furious" and there is still no sign of ending it.  He is a Communist without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so. How shrewd he is in America. His cult of personality mesmerizes those who cannot go beyond their ignorance. They will continue to follow him like those fools who still praise Lenin and Stalin in Russia.  Obama's fools and Stalin's fools share the same drink of illusion.

Reading Putin's speech without knowing the author, one would think it was written by Reagan or another conservative in America. The speech promotes smaller government and less taxes. It comes as no surprise to those who know Putin as a conservative. Vladimir Putin went on to say:

"...we are reducing taxes on production, investing money in the economy. We are optimizing state expenses.

 The second possible mistake would be excessive interference into the economic life of the country and the absolute faith into the all-mightiness of the state.

There are no grounds to suggest that by putting the responsibility over to the state, one can achieve better results.

Unreasonable expansion of the budget deficit, accumulation of the national debt - are as destructive as an adventurous stock market game.

During the time of the Soviet Union the role of the state in economy was made absolute, which eventually lead to the total non-competitiveness of the economy. That lesson cost us very dearly. I am sure no one would want history to repeat itself."

President Vladimir Putin could never have imagined anyone so ignorant or so willing to destroy their people like Obama much less seeing millions vote for someone like Obama. They read history in America don't they? Alas, the schools in the U.S. were conquered by the Communists long ago and history was revised thus paving the way for their Communist presidents. Obama has bailed out those businesses that voted for him and increased the debt to over 16 trillion with an ever increasing unemployment rate especially among blacks and other minorities. All the while promoting his agenda.

"We must seek support in the moral values that have ensured the progress of our civilization. Honesty and hard work, responsibility and faith in our strength are bound to bring us success."- Vladimir Putin

The red, white and blue still flies happily but only in Russia. Russia still has St George defeating the Dragon with the symbol of the cross on its' flag. The ACLU and other atheist groups in America would never allow the US flag with such religious symbols. Lawsuits a plenty against religious freedom and expression in the land of the free. Christianity in the U.S. is under attack as it was during the early period of the Soviet Union when religious symbols were against the law.   

Let's give American voters the benefit of the doubt and say it was all voter fraud and not ignorance or stupidity in electing a man who does not even know what to do and refuses help from Russia when there was an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Instead we'll say it's true that the Communists usage of electronic voting was just a plan to manipulate the vote. Soros and his ownership of the company that counts the US votes in Spain helped put their puppet in power in the White House. According to the Huffington Post, residents in all 50 states have filed petitions to secede from the Unites States. We'll say that these Americans are hostages to the Communists in power. How long will their government reign tyranny upon them?

Russia lost its' civil war with the Reds and millions suffered torture and death for almost 75 years under the tyranny of the United Soviet Socialist Republic. Russians survived with a new and stronger faith in God and ever growing Christian Church. The question is how long will the once "Land of the Free" remain the United Socialist States of America?  Their suffering has only begun. Bye bye Miss American Pie!  You know the song you hippies. Sing it! Don't you remember? 

The 1971 hit song by American song writer Don McLean :)

"And, as I watched him on the stage my hands were clenched in fists of rage.

No angel born in Hell could break that Satan's spell

And, as the flames climbed high into the night to light the sacrificial rite, I saw...

Satan laughing with delight the day the music died

He was singing, bye bye Miss American Pie

Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry

Them good ol' boys were drinking whiskey and rye, singing...

This'll be the day that I die

This'll be the day that I die

So, the question remains:

How long will America suffer and to what depths?"

"History is for human self-knowledge ... the only clue to what man can do is what man has done. The value of history, then, is that it teaches us what man has done and thus what man is."

Rich America ~ A Rich Idea Indeed. Does it Still Stand a Fighting Chance

This is a comment in response to a post on

The original message,
"Do you think the wealthy should pay more tax? Share your views "

My comment in response,

The Fruits of your Dreams Come Alive and Emerge Only through Toil and Labor
" We often hear of wealthy Americans investing overseas. Now, if we increase taxes for them we will start hearing of how they're either moving out altogether, forfeiting their citizenship or finding new loop holes and havens in ways the average person can never possibly fathom. Taxes hurt most of us, just think of what exactly are we paying for: Mismanaged funds? Wastage? Unwanted Excesses? Irrelevant policies and needless programs? Interventions that burn more of our hard earned money than anything else? If you cut taxes, you make it easier for the average enterprise, the smallest of contractors and subcontractors to breathe, stay alive and compete. By increasing the tax burden you put a weight on communities, businesses and the people of this Nation unlike anything they're used to bearing. This was never a Socialist Nation with a big government that needs loads of your money in taxes just to stay operational and then still manage to build these massive debts. It was a Nation where Free enterprises thrived and businesses supported other businesses and everyone else. Investors stop investing not because they started searching for tax havens and new and more promising opportunities overseas but because we fell behind at some point, all our fancy corporate upper management folks mismanaged and threw away the trust placed on them. Our education system has been dealt a sad and unfortunate blow that has necessitated the need for a highly skilled work force to be migrated in from abroad. There has been such poor planning and neglect when it comes to such things. We are seeing political deadlocks and even a needless crisis emerge like never before. To top it all of just observing and examining our health care system, some of its unethical practices that cater more to profiteering than saving lives explains just how many Americans chose to take and take without ever giving back or contributing to raising the bar for this Nation, its communities and people. Individuals and businesses ought to take pride in their work and strive to be the best of the best, there always has to be an ever ready and alive intent to compete. Only then will you get to see the fear disappear, the trust grow back and the funds flying in from every little tax haven that's out there. You can't fight with the choices the rich have but you can definitely work with them if you are sensible and open minded enough to understand how the global market place and economy functions.

The "Right Level of Taxation", An illusion in the Eye of the Beholder

This is a comment in response to a post on LibertyNewswire,

The Original post (I'm hoping this is just another case of the usual sarcasm),

" JFK was obviously an idiot.

God Bless JFK. God Bless America.


        The "right" level of taxation, if there is such a thing, is often purely so, only in the eye of the beholder. The most prominently stated reasons for tax reform are either wrong or dangerously oversimplified. The lower tax rate offsets taxes paid at the corporate level, encourages risk taking, investments and entrepreneurship, offsets the effects of inflation, and prevents "lock-in". 

P.S ~ So you think being allegedly 'idiotic' is why great and celebrated Leaders such as him have sadly had to pay with their priceless lives. Regardless of such tragic Truths, this will always remain a Free country, striving to remain free without the social burdens of excessive taxation on the one end and debt slavery on the other. Watch the republicans if they succeed in the coming weeks and many of these naysayers avoiding the obvious and the practical will probably choose to swallow  these baseless ideas that are against lowered tax rates. 

              The best way to reduce poverty is through stronger economic growth. Growth means more jobs, which is a surefire instrument in the fight against poverty and a painfully slow recovery. Building a strong economy means keeping taxes and government spending low.  For example, when a state has a low tax burden, economic growth is stronger. Economic growth delivers more job creation and higher per capita and higher median family incomes. Economic growth is always a powerful means to encourage and pull people and extract whole communities and local economies out of poverty. Although some policymakers seem understandably deluded and misguided in trying to justify high taxes for the sake of the poor, the higher taxes and related spending do little to reduce poverty rates. Rather it is proven and clear to see that states with healthier, investor friendly and more welcoming economic climates fair better and have much more success in lifting people out of poverty. 

             The socio-economic causes and circumstances of, and solutions to, poverty are very complex and numerous indeed, but one policy is clear: Low tax rates are a significant factor in achieving the universal goal of poverty reduction whilst simultaneously facilitating economic recovery and stimulating growth.

The Spirit of Freedom is The Spirit of Love

        Re-posting this interesting excerpt seen on Intellectual Takeout ,

"All riches must finally fall into the gap between thoughts and things. Governed by mind but caught in matter, assets must afford an income stream that is expected to continue. The expectation may shift as swiftly as thought, but things, alas, are all too solid and slow to change. The kaleidoscope of shifting valuations, flashing gains and losses as it is turned in the hands of time, in the grip of 'news,' distributes and redistributes the wealth of the world far more quickly and surely than any scheme of the state.

The belief that wealth consists not chiefly in ideas, attitudes, moral codes, and mental disciplines but in definable static things that can be seized and redistributed — that is the materialist superstition. It stultified the works of Marx and other prophets of violence and envy. It betrays every person who seeks to redistribute wealth by coercion. It balks every socialist revolutionary who imagines that by seizing the so-called means of production he can capture the crucial capital of an economy. It baffles nearly every conglomerateur who believes he can safely enter new industries by buying rather than by learning them. It confounds every bureaucrat of science who imagines he can buy or steal the fruits of research and development.

Even if it wished to, the government could not capture America’s wealth from its 1 percent of the 1 percent. As Marxist despots and tribal socialists from Cuba to Greece have discovered to their huge disappointment, governments can neither create wealth nor effectively redistribute it. They can only expropriate and watch it dissipate. If we continue to harass, overtax, and oppressively regulate entrepreneurs, our liberal politicians will be shocked and horrified to discover how swiftly the physical tokens of the means of production dissolve into so much corroded wire, abandoned batteries, scrap metal, and wasteland rot."

~ George Gilder, 'Unleash the Mind'


         Isn't it amazing how we fail to learn, or 'Unleash the Mind' as Gilder rightly put it, despite so many of these examples that remain lost and buried in the forgotten pages of history. The diverse values that make this country so unique and blessed, indeed are of a very personal Nature. Despite all the adversities including the shifting tides of globalization it is extremely difficult and close to impossible to shake or take something so personal away. Sadly, you only understand the meaning of what is dear and priceless when it is lost or when you have newly discovered what you have never had.....

    This is another article I wrote a while ago relating to the same subject. I wanted to share some of these deeper sentiments and thoughts from around the world,

The Spirit of Freedom is The Spirit of Love

    This is a response made to a very valid, interesting and mind opening note made by my friend Princess Erika de Krutova,

" I do not understand. America is so strong on freedoms. I have read your Constitution many times in an effort to incorporate some ideas and items into our country. How is it that freedoms can be taken away? Everyone in my country and almost all I know across Europe envy the American way of life and freedom it brings." - Princess Erika de Krutova

Here are some of the colorful and inspiring responses that were made.........

Sherry Lee: "Freedom cannot be taken away of heart mind and spirit but evil people empowered by satan want to enslave because that is the nature of the beast. They want to destroy happiness on the planet and light and fill every soul with terror. I have worked with these people. There is no logic, love or sanity in their universe. Only darkness. They create destruction. If they enslave a few they will enslave the world through advanced technology. I wrote a book about this. It is called 'In Satan We Trust'- Age of destruction. The devil gains whatever power he can. The foolish servants of the anti Christ dominate to get control. Anyone with half a brain knows this sick power won't stay in the hands of a few. It will spread and lead to world destruction unless it is stopped. This can't have a good outcome...."

Michael Scott:"Seems to be a combination of greed based economics and an evil need to change something established by a previous person in power. Freedom is a commodity it seems in so many ways and a country can go bankrupt in private and turn the tables of any constitution. There is much to say abou this. I am so glad you are asking. It is wonderful to hear you interest and passions......"

Simon Templar:"When considering American freedom you should start with the Declaration of Independence "We hold these truths as self evident..." Then move on to the Constitution. The Constitution is more of a document outlining how the national government should operate and the authorities it is granted. The first ten Amendments secure many of the freedoms that Americans enjoy. However, the power of big government is always a threat to those rights. The Constitution clearly states that those powers not enumerated within the document are reserved to the states and the people. However, the "New Deal" the federal government usurped many of those rights under the banner of the "Interstate Commerce Clause." The degradation of rights among the American people can be directly attributed to this one interpretation of the Constitution. Freedom is lost through fear. When fear enters our society the people willingly forfeit their freedoms so that they feel safe and secure. Therefore, you will always see some incident that creates fear in the people, economy problems, terrorism, etc. prior to the government removing rights and liberties. And always remember, there is the ideal of American freedom and the reality that those freedoms are always subject to a politician's interpretation........"

My comment and response to add to this excellent discussion,

        I agree with several of the valid points made by Simon. I strongly believe that this ' Ideal of American freedom' is still truly well within the reach of all Americans regardless of the political environment, primarily because this ideal and the very Spirit of it is something deeply rooted in the hearts and minds of almost every generation of Americans to date. You must never alienate the fact that the capitalism we have here and the economy it supports has thrived alongside this freedom. Perhaps most of the doubts, wider issues, corruptions, fears and the rest of the problems we face today stem from the inherent flaws of capitalism, whether it is the uneven distribution of wealth, opportunities or the current ill health of our economy. For better or for worse, with time change is imminent and inevitable. As far as the ideas of corruption, uneven distribution of power and abuse of authority are concerned we are still in the infantile stages as compared to some of the well established cultural norms and structures elsewhere in the world. As long as Americans can still vote, Politicians can and will be replaced. As long as Americans still have a voice and some of the brave and pro active journalists continue to do their jobs we will always question, expose and root out any and every form of high handed corruption that threatens our freedom and liberty. Freedom is a rare quality, with many facets and dimensions. This ' Ideal of American freedom' is more than just a sentiment; it is immaculate and has no hypocrisy or so called evil infiltrating its definition since its birth several centuries ago. This is something emotional, psychological and most certainly something beautiful and spiritual that every American carries deep within his heart and mind. Psychologically, yes, I agree that fear comes and goes but most certainly it has a role and a part to play in giving us the window of opportunity to weed and root out some of the flaws and socio-economic problems we face today. Unlike many resentful perceptions, this Freedom is something very obvious in almost every generation of Americans. If you compare an average American with let's say someone else there is something very obvious, unique and special in the way he/she is thinking, evolving and functioning, that sense of independence has a very strong personal side to it, which has been handed down from generation to generation and can rub off very easily on someone who is open minded and open hearted enough to accept the truth that is innate and germane to this freedom and to this nation. Perhaps the only serious threat that many of us overlook and side step is the fact that if what we face today continues to dwell and grow, creating an environment where corruption, high handedness and abuse of authority prevails and instills growing fears in the hearts and minds of our young working men and women, the youth of this nation and the new generation, then we risk creating a generational gap and may fail to propagate this gift of freedom to our children and to our future. This to me is very unlikely because of the level of awareness that is currently widespread among the educated, enlightened and bright minds that serve as the wheels, the engine, the fuel and the driving force of this nation. 

          On a broader economic context, capitalism has its cycles, and just as they did during the great depression, the Americans of today will face and overcome this test with the strength of our Spirit. They will never fail to surge this nation forward and this ' Ideal of Freedom' is certainly somewhat of an untainted divine gift that serves as their God given right to continue to face their fears, problems and strive forward into a future filled with socio-economic and cultural evolution, opportunities to growth and prosperity for all, and the many countless gifts that come with carrying the ideal of Freedom in your heart. The Spirit of freedom will never fail those who have placed their trust in it. That's what it takes to be an American. This, my opinion, is the Truth that I have had to live with, the Truth that I have observed and the Truth that I continue to study. 

        It doesn't matter where you're from or where you're going, this sense of freedom will stick and stay with your Soul no matter what. As they say Freedom isn't free but it is worth so much more than all the gold in the world, and we treasure it with all our hearts and all our lives.

     Many thanks to my friend Princess Erika de Krutova and her friends for providing such an insightful and eye opening discussion. I hope, pray and wish everyone the best of what the Spirit of freedom has to offer and give to all its children.

Love, Peace, Freedom, Best Wishes & Blessings to You All,

The Wise in the Storm

This is a comment in response to a post by Politicus USA,

You can read it at the link below,

“The wise man in the storm prays to God, not for safety from danger, but deliverance from fear” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson 

     You have been blessed with the best of faculties, intelligence and abilities so that you may use it as creatively as your Life and its trials require of you. You can help yourself in the middle of any storm, that is how rich your innate gifts can be when you care enough to discover and use them.

Dear Politicus,  
                      You don't need a "wrathologist".. lol . If you really need to know or to write or.. to entertain your intrigues, inferences and ideas about God's Intelligence, know that whatever it may be it is just as Fair as it is Free. It is a latent witness that pervades anything and everything without exceptions or favorites. It is only in our limited Human perceptions that such a bias and illusion seems to exist. Open yours eyes and minds to the mysterious, things that you can't comprehend till you are humble enough to grow, to Love, to admire, to appreciate, to learn and to know. One needs an open heart to develop and cultivate such an endless understanding within ones mind and intelligence. Even an emotion as ineffable as Love can at best only get you remotely near the presence of the Truth.

P.S ~ Men Observe and Study the Laws that Govern and Regulate Nature. Their Knowledge of it is just as limited as their present Human Condition and its Intelligence. Men can only harness what they know, they can wonderfully create with it, but that does not mean that they created the Truth that blessed their desires, diligence and efforts.

“Life does not consist mainly, or even largely, of facts and happenings. It consists mainly of the storm of thought that is forever flowing through one's head.” ~ Mark Twain

"Faith begins when reason finds its limit and knowledge fails to express. Faith begins when belief  continues in its quest to build its bridges across to the Truth."

Freeing the Creative Flow ~ A Flourish at the Frontiers of the Human Condition

"If you have anything really valuable to contribute to the world, it will come through the expression of your own personality, that single spark of divinity that sets you off and makes you different from every other living creature." ~Bruce Barton

This is a comment in response to a post by my friend Nuria Fuente,

Below is an Excerpt from the original entry,

"Radu Balanescu, a Grand Master of the Grand National Lodge of Romania, summed up what intellectuals do, why they are important, and what awaits any group that fails to generate them among its members, when he noted that "an elite intellectual, a thinker, is a person who restores to humanity its essence. This is the motive for the gigantic impact thinkers have had in the history of the world. This is the reason why collectivities deprived of great thinkers decay relatively quickly, pervert themselves and are eliminated toward the edge of human history."


'  Really well written, Nuria. Thank you for sharing this observation. 

"Imposing The Edge of Human history" 
as opposed to 
"Exploring and Expanding the Frontiers of the Human condition" 

The Reality of Redemption Requires Loving and Tireless hands 

     This curbing edge.. this limiting boundary is what is being defined in the United States of today. The trend has also had a more wider and adverse impact on the quality of life of the individual as it pertains to his/her Personal Freedoms and the most fundamental levels of both inner and outer Liberties.  Owed to several factors  both internal and external, many of the warnings that the founding fathers stated seem to have come alive to a significant extent. Sadly it is just a little too much to ask of such a collective to produce the likes of Jacques-Geoges Plumet, or Alain Bauer. The very Spirit of Creative flow has been hindered at its roots to create an increasingly dependent and servile society with an equally inhuman sense of social order. Every Human life is precious, meaningful, gifted and beautiful. Granting this boundless attribution and meaning to an individual is the only harmonious way to ensure the health, growth, evolution and significance of a greater collective comprised of such individuals. 

         Free men are attributed with an essential and kind sense of hospitality, mutual respect and a voluntary desire to preserve, collaborate and work towards a state of stability, prosperity and social harmony. Such words describe the nature of many more things that have been stripped off late from the free as they are forced to comply and conform to questionable standards, stereotypes, ideologies and schools of thought that serve agendas and personal interests more than anything else . It is a shame indeed to state the obvious but as I am sure people all around the world know, there is also a deliberation to slowly but surely crack down on instruments that can provide or ensure such a sense of individuality, independence and freedom. It should suffice to say that we live in an increasingly global society with its many entities that intend to exercise a greater influence in reshaping America and the American identity. Given these facts I personally feel it is not entirely fair to remark that America has failed or ceased to produce the likes of such Architects of Humanity, Thought and the collective Conscience that shapes us. It seems what we have or are in the process of building is a social machine instead. It may not impress as much and it may be a hallmark of what nullifies true Human Potential but it is still roughly comparable to a communist regime that works and extracts from its clearly designated set of parts. People are not parts, it is indeed a sad and hateful thing to enslave a person. It is kind of like capturing and fastening chains around a wild animal that was always designed and born to roam free. It is an unnatural act that is contrary to what makes us Human.

Your Life is a Gift. The Greatest Service You can do is to be Free and Fruitful in Living its Truth. 

       "There are one-story intellects, two-story intellects, and three-story intellects with sky-lights. All fact collectors, who have no aim beyond their facts, are one-story men. Two-story men compare, reason generalize, using the labors of the fact collectors as well as their own. Three-story men idealize, imagine, predict, their best illumination comes from above, through the skylight." ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes

            The most beautiful thing that we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.

          What You Believe in, Serves as your path. You are Entitled to the Truth, only if You are Free to Shape and Author your beliefs, lessons and experiences with the Life that you live. No one can do what is expected of You. Your path and these steps are yours alone to walk.  '

An Inclusive & Free America ? From Circles & Whispers to Measured Opinions..... ?

"Wealth is an offspring of Liberty and True Independence. Peace is a creation spawned by Freedom and Choice, it is a gift showered upon those that toil and strive away from the false tranquility of servitude." ~ Jai Krishna Ponnappan

       It is easy to find out just why migrating to Europe never seems like such a bad idea to many. These are very interesting times indeed. A while ago, one would have never even entertained or considered such a thought. I understand why some people with vested interests and self inflicted dependencies get on their knees and bow down, and strive to serve, promote, mimic and emulate a communist China. By observation Marxism and Communism are still far away but a centrally controlled Socialist police state definitely seems to be in the works. And it looks like some very blessed people down south have had enough of watching this country change. Unfortunately all they need is to take themselves seriously. They seem resourceful enough to be serious about such a stance. Just as an observation I guess..perhaps, America has changed or begun the process of such an uncharacteristic step away from its defining values ..but it really does seem like some Americans haven't.

Measured opinions carry a lot of weight. One shouldn't have to retract them or apologize for having a voice. Opinions.....One can't help but study them.

Judge Tom Head was on a local TV news show making his case for a tax increase, when he said hiring extra sheriff's deputies would especially be needed if Obama wins in November.

"He's going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the U.N., and what is going to happen when that happens?," Head asked.
"I'm thinking the worst. Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe. And we're not just talking a few riots here and demonstrations, we're talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy.
"Now what's going to happen if we do that, if the public decides to do that? He's going to send in U.N. troops. I don't want 'em in Lubbock County. OK. So I'm going to stand in front of their armored personnel carrier and say 'you're not coming in here'.
"And the sheriff, I've already asked him, I said 'you gonna back me' he said, 'yeah, I'll back you'. Well, I don't want a bunch of rookies back there. I want trained, equipped, seasoned veteran officers to back me."

P.S ~ Just as a note it is important to understand that one person can never be solely responsible for works that require the efforts and minds of many. It is amazing how a Nation so Free could possibly relate to "Made with Communism" while cultivating needless dependencies that hurt its own people and their independence.

The Snow Lion is Rising ~ Tibet shall be Free!

This is a comment in response to,

"The Middle-Way Approach is proposed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama to peacefully resolve the issue of Tibet and to bring about stability and co-existence between the Tibetan and Chinese peoples based on equality and mutual co-operation. It is also a policy adopted democratically by the Central Tibetan Administration and the Tibetan people through a series of discussions held over a long time. This brief introduction to the Middle-Way policy and its history is intended for the Tibetan people inside and outside Tibet - and all those interested - to have a better understanding of the issues involved...

‎... The Tibetan people do not accept the present status of Tibet under the People's Republic of China. At the same time, they do not seek independence for Tibet, which is a historical fact. Treading a middle path in between these two lies the policy and means to achieve a genuine autonomy for all Tibetans living in the three traditional provinces of Tibet within the framework of the People's Republic of China. This is called the Middle-Way Approach..."

Please Help Put An End to the 
Systematic Genocide in Tibet

           Yes all of the above is very true, as it occurred and played out several decades ago. With time comes change as is stated here, "Unfortunately, the Chinese army unleashed a harsh military crackdown in Lhasa, Tibet's capital, and this convinced His Holiness the Dalai Lama that his hope for co-existence with the Chinese government was no longer possible. Under the circumstances, he had no other option but to seek refuge in India and work in exile for the freedom and happiness of all the Tibetan people." There is no Truth or promise in consistent deception, inhumane cruelty and betrayal. P.S ~ I understand that there is perhaps no means within such a path to gauge or read the minds, hearts, agendas and ambitions of the communist regime and its leadership, but when a nation has grown to an extent where such negotiations or consideration becomes trivial, irrelevant and obsolete, the cause of such an approach and its people fall far short of achieving Peace through non-violence, mutual benefit, unity of nationalities and social stability. During this time they have been systematically suppressed and eliminated. The people of Tibet know only too well that the reality today is the polar opposite of the Middle - Way Approach. It is admirable indeed and in many ways reminds us of Mahatma Gandhi. There is hope in that Lord Buddha has no spokesperson but Himself, and I pray may His blessings be with those who stay strong as they walk in His footsteps and persist with prayers and hopes for peace.

From The United Nations For a Free Tibet,

Fighting for Tibet with compassion against an ever increasingly violent China.

Every year, thousands flee Tibet. Those able to survive the dangerous journey over the Himalaya Mountains first make their way to Dharamsala, India, where their spiritual leader, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, lives in exile. It is here, that the seat of the Tibetan Government in Exile has been established.

Today, there are approximately 200,000 Tibetans living in exile worldwide (in 40 countries) while another 6,000,000 still struggle against oppression in their homeland; illegally occupied by China. Thousands have ‘disappeared’ and thousands more remain in prisons or forced labor camps.

The situation in Tibet is worsening as the Chinese Government continues to ravage Tibet by torturing, killing and denying Tibetans their basic human rights, as well as destroying the environment. Tibet’s culture, natural resources, wildlife and fragile ecosystem are facing extinction due to over 50 years of mismanagement and abuse under the People’s Republic of China.

Rich in the arts, Tibetan culture is one of the most ancient cultures on this planet. In our tumultuous world, much can be learned from the gentle and peaceful Tibetans; their Buddhist philosophy exemplifies, most importantly kindness and compassion.
Since it is vital that the world does not allow this unique and precious culture to perish, ALL NATIONS must STAND UNITED for a FREE TIBET…until the Tibetans have freedom in their own country, genuine autonomy, and a sincere chance to be heard to get their country back.

Without our Help, There will no Longer be a Tibet to Save.

We are: UNITED NATIONS FOR A FREE TIBET. Tibet shall be free!
General information: we are NOT like the SFT or RTYC, although we respect them 100% for the work they are doing and never shall use any words against them: in fact, many of us have financially supported them over the years.
We are a much more middle way and information group: we encourage everyone to learn about Tibet, to write letters, to sign petitions, to truly get involved, to boycott *made in China* and to support the Tibetans inside and outside Tibet. We support others and share their messages, their requests for demonstrations etc. We participate in many of those demonstrations and lobbying.
We are not a group which is climbing buildings and so forth: --we are more the ones doing work on the background..such as making sure Tibets message gets heard in front of the European Parliament.
Also, we have made sure that the petition hundreds of you signed the last few weeks, called *China: stop the genocide in Tibet and China* has been delivered to Pres Obama yesterday and to several Chinese Embassies as well.

Further, we are with 75 team members now in 38 countries who are building their own groups ..we are not so much in the USA at all, because the SFT and RTYC with thousands of Tibetans and supporters, are already around: we are on places no one is, like the United Arab Emirates.
We hope you understand our work and continue to support us with your presence and help.

We are Volunteers, most of UNFFT's core team members are Buddhists and work with love and compassion in our hearts for Tibet.

Time is running out for the Dragon...the Snow Lion is rising.....♥

We must not be here in 10 years from now, not even in 5 years from now. Because by then, Tibet shall be free. And if not, we have failed* --

"The United Nations for a Free Tibet (UNFFT) was founded to raise awareness of gross human rights violations committed against Tibetans in their homeland by the Communist Chinese Regime (CCP) which has occupied Tibet for more than 60 years. UNFFT's mission is to educate the public and to advocate for an end to the oppression and atrocities brought by the brutal Chinese occupation. With over 50,000 members across the globe, we are a strong ally of Tibet. UNFFT is registered in the United States as a non-profit 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization and is run entirely by volunteers."

Wake Up World! Do Not Stay a Silent Witness.
Do Not turn Away from the Plight of the Defenseless and the Voiceless.
Please Help Put an End to the Killing

Peace is the Road to Peace

" Peace comes from being able to contribute to Peace. Peace is the way and the road that leads to Peace. Say NO to war, violence and bloodshed. Strive to pursue and stay committed to Peace from both within and without, and you'll find that an Eternity full of it eagerly awaits to greet You. " ~Jai Krishna Ponnappan

This is a comment in response to a post on congressman John Fleming's page,

"Iran renews its vow to remove the "tumor" that is Israel. Will Obama be there to defend our most cherished middle-east ally? "

P.S ~ Both Iranian and Israeli people want Peace with each other! Do not confuse the govt. with the people! People matter.. and Hearts matter most. Peace is what they want and Peace is what they'll get. 


U.S. Representative John Fleming : Jai, the people are not in control of the Iranian army or the development of nukes. Therein lies the problem.

Jai Krishna Ponnappan: Thank You for your reply, John. Looking back at the recent past there are strong and justified reasons why U.S intervention was restricted to being strictly diplomatic, steadily increasing pressure through sanctions and all other possible measures that involve dealing with countries engaged bilaterally with Iran. All other governments concerned are representative and are not authorized or warranted to destabilize the current fiscal or geo-political climate both in and out of the region. Both people and governments would have to be prepared to deal, counter and pay for the inevitable consequences of such interventions and commitments. Strategic, defense and intelligence analysts are already aware of where the West as a whole measures up with regards to the proxy war being lost in Syria. It is never too hard or difficult to simulate or assess the approximate costs or our capacity to deal with a situation or carry out an intervention especially when peace, tactfulness and diplomacy are what our leaders are expected to exhibit and exercise prior to spending from our existing dysfunctional budget and sending our men and women back out into the region to make needless sacrifices that could and should be avoided. The cost of War both Human and otherwise is burdensome and a threat to the long process of restoring this Nation's economic balance and Fiscal integrity. Above all let us not forget that this involves this country, its people, their voices and their immediate and pressing concerns.

Revolutions that Begin in the Heart

            A comment in response to this post on,

You'll find the post at,

So here's A Warm Welcome to the Real World,



P.S ~ Revolutions revolve around real people and not around political puppets and those who exercise instability and uncertainty at the expense of the Nation's future. There are plenty of rich intelligent people who don't waste their precious time and energy to speak of politics and who will most certainly be boycotting the elections like they have always done because regardless of who you vote for, you will be voting for ??? You know who.. just as much as they do.

               >> If you truly care about people, be there.. when and where they and your immediate community needs you the most. If you love your version of politics, your opinions and your vanity about the same, try and change.. get practical and make attempts at questioning yourselves and being more realistic. Stop blindly believing in what you are told and get on with life. Focus on Changing your day..that is the only real revolution which is within every man's reach, everything else is an entertaining and sensational distraction designed for the willing sheep.

"The only people who deserve to be called ignorant are those that ignore others and their plight." 

~ Blessings & Best Regards,
Jai Krishna Ponnappan
