Legalize Marijuana Nationwide and Free All the Cannabis Prisoners. We could use the extra money to pay for healthcare for all.

August 10, 2017

The USA would receive a fortune in VOLUNTARY Taxes. If you don’t smoke you wouldn’t pay a cent. We could also cut Taxpayer expenses currently wasted on Incarceration and Law Enforcement. It’s a Win-Win situation. More money going into the Treasury and Less going out.  In addition, states that have legal medical marijuana have fewer deaths due to opioid addiction. Some people simply choose the safer drug… DUH…

Who could Possibly be in Favor of keeping Cannabis Illegal?
Corporations that are in the business of incarceration.

Law Enforcement makes money by arresting people, then warehousing them in jail. While ACTUAL crime is on the wane, cannabis arrests are easy and low risk. REAL criminals are often dangerous. Cannabis Criminals are Often Stoned… and easygoing…

and… all these people depend on Prohibition for their Paycheck…

Judges, lawyers, police, bail bondsmen, prison guards, construction workers that build prisons, social workers that talk to the families left behind, involuntary rehab clinics, fertilizer salesman, grow-light salesman, realtors that rent abandoned houses to be used as farms… There is a huge industry that will have sales reduced if Marijuana is legalized…

also…

Criminals depend on Marijuana being Illegal to Protect their Profits. With Legal Marijuana, the Mexican Mafia would be in deep trouble… Are they bribing Senators and Congressmen? We do not know because that money is in cash and not traceable…

How I Meditate. It’s easy to do and It improves mental health… AND… It Accelerates Global Awakening!

July 22, 2017

I lie down and close my eyes. Then I focus my attention on my breathing. Slow deep breaths with a silent verbal statement during each breath.

For Example:

[Inhale] My mind is completely relaxed  [Exhale] … [Inhale] My body is completely relaxed [Exhale] …  [Inhale] I’m going deeper and deeper into a Hypnotic Trance [Exhale] … [Inhale] God… [Exhale] …  [Inhale] Make me a Channel of thy peace [Exhale] … [Inhale] Where there is Sickness may I bring Health [Exhale] … [Inhale] God… [Exhale] … [Inhale] God… [Exhale] … [Inhale] God… [Exhale] …  [Inhale] God… [Exhale] … [Inhale] God… [Exhale] … [Inhale] God… [Exhale] …  [Inhale] God… [Exhale] … [Inhale] God… [Exhale] … [Inhale] God… [Exhale] …

and then repeat the entire prayer again and again…

Sometimes I ask God What I should write on my Blog… Looking for divine inspiration for these words… seeking a little wisdom to share… Then I type my Ideas into the internet for people to read and share…

other times I ask God What should I do with my Art programs? Looking for basic concepts to express using Potatoshop?

Sometimes I fall asleep and have Colorful Dreams where I go visit an Art Gallery and see Imaginary Paintings…

It is possible to do this style of Meditation while walking. Focus your attention on your breathing, think positive uplifting thoughts and thank God for this wonderful world. Choose your own God to thank. [Inhale] thank you  [Exhale] [Inhale] thank you  [Exhale] [Inhale] thank you  [Exhale] [Inhale] thank you  [Exhale] [Inhale] thank you  [Exhale] Watch where you are going and observe the beautiful flowers and trees… they are your brothers and sisters… Observe the beautiful rivers, oceans and the morning dew on the trees… we are mostly water and it’s healing to view water… or swim… Some people find the Mantra “OM” is a powerful word. It rhymes with HOME but it’s a word in a language that’s not English. Ram Dass recommends Mantras written in Sanskrit but I find that they are confusing… He meditates by repeating “RAM” while paying attention to his breathing… That doesn’t work for me because RAM in English stands for Random Access Memory – a computer term or a Brand name of a TRUCK or a male sheep or goat… It doesn’t do me any good to focus my thoughts on a BIG TRUCK… SO, I choose my own Mantra… “Thank You” works for me.

If your current God turns out to be a disaster then fire that God and find a different one that works! There are over one million different Gods in Hinduism alone. and… there are Many different Religions or lack of Religions in practice in the world today. Do you worship Money? Is that working out? Do you currently worship Jesus or Allah? Well, those paths work just fine for many people but… if they are leading you to chronic unhappiness then simply stop doing that. Just Stop with the self inflicted punishment and choose something else. What about worshipping a plant or worshipping ALL plants and ALL animals? We are all one big happy family… Try dancing around a campfire at night while playing the drums… Might work!

Lie with Statistics – Learn How to Create Misleading Bar Charts
Bar charts that use a resized photograph instead of a bar Automatically give the viewer an exaggerated idea… RESIZE the photo using constrained proportions. This gives the illusion that a increase of Two times is displayed as a Four times increase in area. This technique was used a lot by the newspaper USA TODAY.

meta-chart-accurate-representation-of-data
Normal, Accurate Bar Chart.

meta-chart-distorted-image-resize-statistics-lie
Distorted Chart Using a Resized Photo as bars in the bar chart.

Double the Height = Four Times the Area.

Visually Exaggerating Change. It’s an Illusion. A Magic trick.

Compare the two charts. What do you see? Report results in the comments section below. It appears to me that the bottom chart shows a situation that is More Significant than the top chart…
I learned this from Dr Kim of Humboldt State University. Thanks! Dr. Kim.

Question. a Quest for an Ion… Like CERN and subatomic physics…

July 15, 2012

So, there has been great strides forward in physics… The articles I have read make me wonder… since this discovery is of a truly fundamental nature, what IS the Higgs Boson and how will it effect our understanding of reality… It is FUN to QUESTION REALITY.Image

I do not pretend to actually understand what it is that they have discovered but… It seems that this particle is what causes mass to exist at all. AND it helps to explain why spiral galaxies don’t simply expand forever instantly… There is a fundamental mystery being explored there. Thanks CERN. For Your Information: That is where Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web. He needed a way to navigate easily from one computer file to another… so he invented the LINK. Pretty profound Idea… Here is a LINK: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tim_Berners-Lee

Peace Rally in Eureka, CA. “Aware, Awake and Appalled” says the sign…

For years we have held Peace Marches and Rallies in Eureka. Starting in 2003 before the War in Iraq started and every year since… Eventually, the President of the United States got the message and the War in Iraq ended. Except for the Blackwater Mercenaries… They remain… but, they are civilians and employed to protect our oil companies… The 1% feel it’s a good investment. That’s why our Peace Protest has turned into an OCCUPATION.
