Standing Rock Feb 21, 2017- What Today Means

After months of protest and after an incredible amount of injustice towards Native American sisters and brothers, the government has officially declared it will cut off access to the main resistance camp at Standing Rock, Oceti Sakowin, shutting it down, and most likely forcing its inhabitants out.

They are peacefully protesting. They are conducting behavior that is protected by the US constitution. So why are they being treated like criminals and terrorists?

I pray for the water protectors. They are taking on the most difficult battle of all Americans, because they are fighting the Unstoppable Empire, the very beast itself.

What has really changed? This is how they have been treated for many decades. Centuries. Nothing has changed between the relationship of the American government and the original Americans, except in all the ways the American government has deceived its people.

This is what occurs when profits are put before people. When oil flowing through pipes is more important than the lives of people.

This is not an overreaction. This is a very real fight for survival. There water is now in more danger than ever before. Just like our grandmother Earth.

Pray for Standing Rock.

19th of September 2016- Apartheid, Racism, Slavery- Alive and Well.

A short introduction video to the Palestinian/Israel conflict.

Another day here in California. Away from the genocide, the destruction, and Apartheid taking place in the middle east (all with the consent of my countrymen and government.)

It sure is a drag. which weighs down on me every single day.

It is 2016 and what civilization has fought for so long to expel, things such as racism and genocide, apartheid, discrimination, war- are all today thriving.

The bombs are still dropping. The drones are still striking. The corporations are still pulling the strings of the puppet politicians. The masses are still hypnotized in every aspect of their lives.

Will any of this ever change? What can stop this super power government from funding more brutal occupation?

Idk where im going with this. But It is something I need to express.

Update

Disclaimer: (post is full of personal bias and my own perspective)

Bernie sanders wins Indiana primary. If he can become the democratic nominee, then he would definitely win over trump in the final election.

There are simply too many right minded people to vote Trump into office.

Well, at least I hope so.

Hilary and Bernie are neck and neck- Hilary with the support of the mega-rich, upper class and upper middle class, and Bernie with the “millennials” and more liberal Americans. this has been a very “entertaining” election, perhaps the most so in the last two decades.

And how does this concern me? Well, i personally believe having anyone but Bernie would be catastrophic.

Hilary- Aside from her unquestionable allegiance to Israel, she has many flaws that stand out to me. Her warmongering approach, her disconnect with the vast majority of Americans.

Trump- Racist.

Bernie- Not perfect. But hes at least pointing this massive ship towards the shores of real progress.

Well, I am going to be writing more.

Goodnight.

 

 

Hello Orange County!

1-4-16

Today is Monday and its the first Monday of the new year! People are scurrying off to work and getting used to being on the grind again!

As for me, I sit at home looking for a job over the internet.

I’m a broke, no-job-having ass fool. But hey, I can still speak to people around the world via WordPress right?

I don’t know what I am getting at. I start school in about a month. Hopefully only have one more semester at Fullerton College, a junior college very close to the Cal State Fullerton.

This is the winter time blues alright. my cat just died. that really sucked. here’s a picture of him: Ludwig_2015.JPG

Right now in the news, uhm, well there is a lot going on.

One ‘trending’ story is the so-called patriots that are occupying a federal building in washington. thats garnering a lot of attention.

Saudi Arabia just executed 47 people in one day. Iranians stormed the Saudi embassy and basically burned it down.

Well, I will keep scouring the internet for news and relevant information for your life.

Follow my blog! I typically write about the Southern California area, events, artists, music, skateboarding especially.

Take it easy guys.

This Week- Monday Dec 6th

Southern California– Today in the news; more on the two killers in San Bernardino.

They are both Muslims. This is HUGE. do you have any idea of what kind of impact this is going to have on public perceptions of Islam in the US?

How long has it been, really, since we have associated terrorism with Islam, since 9/11?

Well, since then, Americans have increasingly begun to place all Muslim’s into one category; capable of causing great harm and destruction.

Why? because an extremely small portion of the over 1 billion Muslims on this planet have claimed that their acts of terrorism are religiously motivated.

Which, for those who cannot disseminate between radicalized, violent individuals and followers of one of the five major world religions, equals:

all Muslims are somehow connected to terrorism, are extremists and are more likely than any other ethic group or religious group of committing acts of terror.

And you see, the events in San Bernardino, “only confirm this.” it reinforces this stupid yet wide-held belief.

It is my opinion that this is all a ploy.

whose ploy, you ask.

Well, the ploy of those who can gain from this division and isolation of Muslims. Maybe, perhaps, those with an interest to interject themselves into the middle east, home and heart of “the Muslim people.”

Perhaps a minority group being labeled terrorists allows said group to be targeted as the root of our suffering, and their extermination the path to our peace.

More on this later.

Monday September 28th- What are you and I really doing today?

The Blood Moon last night symbolized the transformation of darkness to light- the deepening of blackness to complete obscurity, and then to the eventual unveiling of a bright white light.

We can all be seen as this- life breaks us down and puts a shadow over our mind, and suddenly we are found in a solid black abyss of sorrow and confusion. But from this, a cleansing. We are given the opportunity to resurrect anew.

The hardship of life for each of us is a great opportunity to understand the sorrow of others and why our help is greatly appreciated.


Southern California is going about its regular routine today. People attending to their jobs, students flocking to class and filling the libraries. There is always so much going on it is hard to really understand what kind of progress is being made by our society as a whole.

Some would say we are laying the foundation for a better tomorrow for ourselves and for the next generation, others would say we are fighting injustices and securing the well being of those that are less fortunate than most in today’s society, such as minority groups, the homeless, and orphans.

Whatever we are doing as a whole, however, depends completely on ourselves and how we are reacting to the world around us. While there are people who wish to continue to control the masses, through popular culture and other ego-entertainment, there are those wishing to free others from suffering, those trying to awaken others who are still asleep.

Each day we build upon the efforts of yesterday, and we are always creating and destroying. Ultimately, it depends on ourselves. The greatest work we can afford the world is the work we conduct upon ourselves; the spiritual path of compassion, understanding and love.

When we understand that each of us plays an intrinsic role and we each have a great responsibility, we will all start to make the world a better place, and the collective unconscious will, more and more, begin to heal the wounds made upon this world, the wounds of hate and selfishness.

“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” – Rumi
