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?
Thoughts become things... choose the good ones!®

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

Some Great Daily Motivation for you from Mr. Max Steingart...
SEE THE WORLD AS IT IS
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.

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.
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.

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!
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.

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:

The sale site is going to be on Daniel's Build Your Future Now! website. If you're interested in advance of the posting, let me know by sending me an e-mail. I'm going to be selling it for $190, which is a full $120 less than the current sales price for a similar model, and I'm throwing in some Screen Protectors as well. ;-)

GARD PUSHES PAY TO PLAY BACK ON THE LEGISLATIVE AGENDA
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 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.

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!

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.

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.

I'm not making comparisons, just stating the truth must be told at all times.
"The victor will never be asked if he told the truth"
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

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...
You can see the reason here:
Yes, the Truth is Out There, and I'm doing my part to piss off the Right Wing.

We have not been defeated, nor have we even been set back because of the defeat of 2004. This is the beginning--activism must not stop, if it does, we all lose.
