A Note From the Universe

These have always fascinated me, and I'm sure you'll appreciate today's note from the Universe.
For more information on "Notes from the Universe," click on the available link.

Life's so called "tests", Daniel, aren't really tests at all.

And to dispel a common misconception, they certainly aren't given by me.They're just the facts and circumstances one has crafted, that, ever so conveniently, draw attention to powers and comprehensions they've yet to claim.

Amazing how these things work themselves out, huh?

If anything, they're more like take-home tests, Daniel, if you know what I mean, that come with built in answers.

See The World As It Is

Some Great Daily Motivation for you from Mr. Max Steingart...

The truth is what it is.
It's neither good nor bad. It's simple reality.
Tailor your concepts to fit reality,
instead of trying to stuff reality into your concepts.
No matter what you believe, it won't change the facts.
If we all worked on the assumption
that what is accepted as true is really true, there would be little hope of advancement in the world.
Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.
If fifty million people say a foolish thing, it's still a foolish thing.
Successful people are realistic
and aren't trapped by false appearances.
Stay realistic on the road to success.

Accessing Your Abundance

This is not on the "political" side of things, but switching to the powerfully personal side.
If you visit Powerful Intentions, you'll see some information posted about Abundance. I've worked with a great coach, Teresa Romain, who helps people (and has greatly helped me) Access their Abundance which already exists inside all of us. We're all abundant human beings, we're all "Amazing" human beings, and we all should be aware that Abundance is our birthright. I encourage you to take a look at Teresa's Access Abundance Website and jump on back here and tell me what you think. I'd like to open up more great discussions with our readers about abundance, personal development, and--of course--politics.

A Change is Coming

I've been doing a lot of thinking in the last 24 hours or so about the status of this blog vs. my other blog. After much consideration, I'm considering changing the content of this blog. We'd still be commited to The Truth, however I may choose to report on many different things, not just the Right Wing (I can't believe I'm linking to that disgusting site! I am NOT an energy match for that!) and their evil (You'll love that! Bush is the Antichrist commentary...) ways.

However, over at my "other place" I've been learning about the values of being in a "vibrational match" to the things I desire. If I focus my intention on Bush, The Conservative Nazis, and all of that, am I not then focusing on exactly what I don't want? It then comes down to a decision...does this serve me? Does this site serve you? If so, comment on it, please. However, the New Blog here will be a place of information and uplifting as well (in relationship to having Powerful Intentions as well as knowing how to "fight back" against the Bush Regime, know their lies, and be informed). I look forward to hearing from you.

The New York Times : Bush Says Iran Speeds Output of A-Bomb Fuel

The New York Times is reporting that "Bush Says Iran Speeds Output of A-Bomb Fuel." This appears to be a part of a broader strategy by the Bush Administration to increase America's and the world community's awareness of Iran's possible attempts of building one or more nuclear weapons through Uranium Enrichment, which it agreed to stop in a message to the United Nations and European Union on November 14th, 2004. So, is Iran going to stop? Is this the beginning of the drumbeats of war marching us towards Iran in Invasion Number Three of the Bush Administration? We all need to start looking at this and deciding for ourselves. And when we do, we must make our voices heard, understood, and be gentle about it. We cannot let the world think that we blindly follow leadership without compelling evidence. We MUST NOT be duped again by this Administration and have another America-Dumbing experience on the U.N. Security Council when Colin Powell ruined the country's credability in his address on the Iraq's Weapons of Mass Destruction (still not found...). You decide. And let me know what you think.

This Weekend...

Well, it’s been another frustrating week. Still outsourced, but making a go of it. Well, actually I'm not. I'm looking very hard for work, and continue to try to make my home-based business. And I think that is where I'll ultimately find success. However, I must acquire money now, so am working on some Powerful Intentions to acquire money, experience abundance in my life, and recognize it at all times.

Enjoy your weekend! I'll write more on Sunday afternoon or Monday. You may want to check out where you can stay active. And if you're interested in your own business, you can check out An Inside Look at the company I'm involved with. For information on businesses like mine, you can also visit the Federal Trade Commission which discusses this type of business, so we can be working together in Integrity!


Action Alert: Anti-Gay Rev. Phelps back in Madison

The Anti-Gay, perverted AIDS funeral protester Rev. Phelps will be at East High School in Madison, WI on Saturday the 20th of November with his crew of haters to protest against the play "The Laramie Project," which deals with the after effects of the murder of the openly gay University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard.

Phelps calls East High's Principal "Satan's Pied Piper" because he is allowing the production of the play to go forward. The interesting comments are covered in a Capital Times editorial.

Phelps must go back to where he came from. He is not welcome here. And he is NOT a Christian, only delusionally thinks he is.

Report: Hunger affected 12 million families in 2003

My question regarding this report is very, very simple.
WHY, in America, are 12 million families going hungry?

I'm trying to gather some world statistics, and am almost afraid to know how poorly the US ranks among developed countries...
You can read CNN's report on it here:

Congress passes $800 billion debt limit hike

On CNN.com Inside Politics: The party line vote to make us all have more debt...: Congress passes $800 billion debt limit hike: "Congress sent President Bush an $800 billion boost in the federal borrowing limit on Thursday, spotlighting how the budget has lurched out of control in recent years and how hard it will be to afford future initiatives."

Wisconsin's Republican Assembly For Sale

The below courtesy of the Wisconsin Democratic Party.

Assembly Speaker John Gard once again put pay topolitics back on the front burner this week when he publicly announced that groups that supported Democratic candidates financially will not be welcome in Republican offices.
The statement sent a clear signal to the Capitol community that the support of the GOP majority is up for sale.

"John Gard has said this week that those who pay the rightcandidates get what they want in Wisconsin. He couldn't have made it clearer if he put a for sale sign on the door of the Assembly chamber," said Kim Warkentin, Executive Director of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.

Gard sent two very clear signals of how he intends to run State Assembly this week. First, he told reporters that he would instruct members of his caucus not to allow individuals who supported Democratic candidates into his office. Secondly, he appointed the criminally indicted, former Assembly Speaker Scott Jensen to the state's budget writing committee. As a member of the powerful Joint Finance Committee, Jensen will be in position to reward groups that funded Republican campaigns on behalf of himself and Gard.

Gard, also told reporters that groups that support Democratic candidates are "terrorist organizations" but said nothing about Republican special interest groups that spent millions attacking Democratic candidates in the 2004 election. Many of these GOP groups not mentioned, including Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce and an out-of-state group called All Children Matter, have strong ties to both Gard and Jensen.

"John Gard and Scott Jensen didn't learn one thing from the caucus scandal and three years later the Assembly Republican Caucus is back to business as usual," said Warkentin. "No one is buying John Gard's ridiculous attempt to portray himself as a reformer. The sad fact is nothing has changed in the GOP controlled legislature and these strong armed pay to play tactics are all the confirmation we need."

Where The Mind is Without Fear

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high

Where knowledge is free

Where the world has not been broken up into fragments

By narrow domestic walls

Where words come out from the depth of truth

Where tireless stiving stretches its arms towards perfection

Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way

Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit

Where the mind is led forward by thee

Into ever-widening thought and action

Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.

-Rabindranath Tagore

The Soul of the People Represented

"As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."

H.L. Mencken (1880 - 1956)

Looks like that day has arrived.

Al Qaeda With a Nuke?

Dire Al Qaeda Threat Amid CIA Turmoil, posted 14-Nov-2004 on Unknown Country is an interesting (and frightening) article claiming that Al Qaeda has stated it has a nuclear weapon (apparently at least one), and plans to detonate it "in the heart of America." There have been no reports of this in the MSM (Mainstream Media), only a report on a respected Italian News Website dated 11-Nov-2004. I encourage you to read the story and decide for yourself. Personally--It would not surprise me if Al Qaeda has been able to get their hands on one (or built one).

Is it The Culture, Stupid?

Frank Rich has a great opinion column in today’s New York Times titled "On ‘Moral Values,’ It’s Blue in a Landslide".

In it Frank discusses some interesting insights into the so called battle of the “Red v. Blue” and the myths that we’ve been allowed to accept as truth, when it is in fact, fiction. With numbers, polls, and a chilling reminder that while Rupert Murdoch extols his moral values through Fox News, he shamelessly promotes books and television shows on the rest of his networks that run counter-value to the Red State “moral values.” (For example…book promoted by Rita Cosby on Fox News’s “Big Story Weekend,” Jenna Jameson’s “How to Make Love Like a Porn Star”)

I encourage you to read his Column, and make your own, now informed, decisions. Enjoy!

Green & Libertarian Candidates Demand Ohio Recount

The Florida of 2004: OHIO. A recount will be taking place, as evidenced in this press release. David Schuster of MSNBC's Hardball has confirmed that this press release is indeed accurate. Will it change the outcome of the election? Will it finally expose the fraud that's been accused? What about Paper Trails for electronic machines?? Democracy is again in action, ladies and gentleman!! This could be fantastic news, or a dissapointing reinforcement. Either way, Democracy will be served, and maybe, just maybe, it will prevent fraud in 2006 and 2008. And maybe...and a longshot maybe at that...we'll not be inaugurating George W. Bush on January 20th, 2005. You can read the recount demand press release here. More information is available here and here.

Baghdad Burning: The Blog

Baghdad Burning is the diary entries of a 25 year-old woman living in Iraq. You won't find this information on CNN, MSNBC, and certainly not Fox News. There's always more to the story--and hearing it from the Iraqi people (and not an "insurgent," but after reading the Blog, some might claim she is, simply because they will not be able to comprehend what these people are going through) is worth the read. Enjoy. Be warned: This may be something you're not used to reading, and it is most certainly heart-wrenching. Unless your a cold-hearted...well...never mind.

Evangelicals Say They Led Charge For the GOP (washingtonpost.com)

Christian "Evangelicals" claim they created a Bush victory. Evangelicals Say They Led Charge For the GOP (washingtonpost.com)

BTW--I'm a Christian, and there'll be an article soon about why, as a Christian, I considered it a "sin" to vote for George W. Bush. He is clearly not the Christian Leader many think him to be. And, we voted for a president, not a pope.

Halliburton Bribed Nigerian Officials

Well, Halliburton is now admitting they "may" have bribed Nigerian officicials through the TSKJ Consortium. The US Justice Department as well as the countries of France and Nigeria have active investigations into the matter. The matter was discussed in a filing by Halliburton in a SEC filing dated Friday, November 5th. You can read the full story here, courtesy of Common Dreams. Thanks to Unfiltered on Air America Radio for alerting me to this story.

The Bush Agenda Begins

Well, it seems like the new Bush Agenda for his second unfortunate term is already showing itself. President Bush promised his base a constitutional ban on gay marriage, and news stories floating around today show that he's already considering the "moves" he can make to gaurantee passage. But good luck, Mr. Bush.

With a 55 seat majority, Republicans do not have the votes they need to pass a constitutional amendment. That's good news. Do we really need a constitutional amendment? I hardly think so. 11 states passed gay marriage bans all on their own on November 2nd, 2004--and this issue is best left to the states to determine (isn't that what Reagan's Republican Party was all about? Giving power back to the states?). Most states if given the opportunity to ban gay marriage will do so. I honestly can't think of a single state that wouldn't ban it. There's simply too much disinformation out there. The Gay and Lesbian population is simply to small to overcome a statewide referendum on marriage rights. It is unfortunate, but it is indeed, the truth.

My problem is this: WHY is the government involved in the business of marriage, anyway? Israel doesn't do it. Most of Europe doesn't do it. Most countries do not have a stake in law, they leave it up to their religious institutions. This is where it belongs here in the USA, too.

But, alas, things are the way things are. The Bush Agenda is on the move, and it is time to make sure we do what we can to keep our freedom. Next will be Social Security Privatization. Tax cuts made permanent. USA Patriot Act made permanent (without the needed changes to protect our freedoms). If things keep going the way they are in Iraq, we'll then have the draft return as well. This is not scare tactics, it's exactly what can happen under the Bush Administration. Everything listed (with the exception of the draft) is what Bush wants to do in his second term. It's even been said that he wants to make sure he "hits it hard" in January of 2005, and have as many of the Bush Agenda items completed before mid-term elections in 2006, because he's well aware that if his Agenda is pushed through, Republican Senators and House members will have a very large price to pay at the polls in November of 2006. I don't think America can afford to wait until 2006 to stop the Bush Agenda. Stay alert. Pay Attention. Be Active. Silence leads only to death. Democracy is far too precious to hand it over on a silver, oil-coated platter to George W. Bush and Company. Maybe Eliot Spitzer will investigate them next?

Democrats have values, too. Here's hoping that America Awakens.

Thousands of U.S. troops enter Fallujah

Now we need to be sure we're supporting our troops, as always. I just wish the Administration would have actually taken this action when we invaded the country, not waiting nearly 2 years to attack the insurgents. The other thing: Many comparisons to Vietnam are now openly being made, that this is the next "Hue City" (The Tet Offensive). Unfortunately, we all know that after the initial success of the Offensive, what happened in Vietnam. This IS the same, just on a smaller scale (so far). The attack on Fallujah is on: MSNBC - Thousands of U.S. troops enter Fallujah

Characteristics of Fascist Regimes

I ran across this information on the 'Net today. I put it up on my website for informational purposes. Draw your own conclusions. 14 Common Characteristics of Fascist Regimes

Bloggerman: George, John, and Warren...A Must Read!!

Seems like skepticism over a Bush win in Ohio has taken some interesting twists. Will the day come when Randi Rhodes will get to say "I told you so! The vote was rigged!!"? Only time will tell, and right now the time tide is turning in her direction. Keith Olbermann has an excellent blog on voting "issues" here: MSNBC Bloggerman: George, John, and Warren

Does History Repeat??

This quote definitely caught my attention. It sounds just a little too familiar for comfort, and it's not the only quote from this madman that has repurcussions in today's United States.

I'm not making comparisons, just stating the truth must be told at all times.

Bush Joke of the Day

Here's a classic from the 2004 campaign.
I've decided we might as well enjoy the jokes, since we've got 4 more years of the "Idiot in Chief."
"The President and Mrs. Bush were on 'Larry King' last night and the president said, 'America is absolutely better off today than it was 4 years ago.' Then he said, 'Did I say America? I meant Chevron.'" —Bill Maher

Man commits suicide at ground zero

So, the question may be asked...Why am I now a left-wing liberal weiner?
I created an article explaining what the reasons are.
A former Republican, ashamed that I actually cast my first Presidential vote for Bush 41. But, times have changed, I have changed, and the Right Wing and Bush Crime Family did it...
