  1. In deed a true shame and one our society must correct immediately if we are ever to be accepted as an example of what other countries who carry the notion they want to be “Just like America.”

  2. The thing is Tom, I think America has already largely lost that eminence. We’ve become the meanest bully on the block.

  3. Barbra, I’ll agree with you, but I also have faith that our country will come to the realization that most of the homeless, at one time, do not want to be in the situation they’re in and society will afford them a second chance to regain themselves.

    I also believe throwing direct welfare money is not what the majority of homeless really want. Instead they desire a simple, fair “opportunity” to be productive and a contributor again to our main stream of life.

    I’ve followed your postings (two months) and both you and I have addressed this topic before, speaking for myself; I feel the both us are aiding the homeless by keeping issues such as this in the public’s eyes. Please keep up posting on this issue by knowing you have my support and hopefully others will joy in with you.

    • I worked with homeless veterans for 2.5 years. Aside from the issue of casting used up veterans aside (which angers me greatly) your assessment is correct in that the majority of those who are homeless want a ‘normal’ life. One vet, John, was desperate for that, telling me he wanted to pay bills, have pots and pans in a cupboard, a place to sleep at night.

      Thank you for continuing to speak out in defense of those who are homeless. I think it is important that the issue be as visible as possible.

  4. “Humanity neither progresses nor evolves by Nature. One can evolve; humanity cannot, for evolution proceeds only consciously.

    Yet humanity must evolve or perish.

    The process of social evolution is the process of individual evolution, the formation of a conscious nucleus within humanity. Even 200 conscious individuals would change the whole of life on earth.

    The individuals forming this inner circle of humanity, though they evolved by different ways, always agree and understand one another. Misunderstandings belong to the outer circle of sleeping people whose confusion of tongues and inevitable discord attest to their ignorance.

    In order to help others one must first learn to help oneself. People’s consuming interest in changing others is a sign of laziness in working on their own evolution.

    Wars cannot be stopped by ordinary means; they are the result of cosmic forces acting upon organic life on earth. The energy made available by mass destruction of life is necesary for the cosmos in the abscence of consciousness in humanity.”

    • Many thousands of individuals who are (moving towards becoming more) conscious are devoting their lives to help change the whole of life on earth.

      We do it to stay sane, to be a part of the solution, because we love. We know that when others suffer, we too suffer and that none are free until all are free!

  5. Six or seven million people have lost their jobs over the last year in the U.S., about a half million a month. Foreclosures will continue for at least a few more years. It looks like it’s going to get a lot worse before it gets better. I’m sure we’re going to have a lot more homeless people and many due to no fault of their own.

    We are witnessing the biggest wealth transfer in history. The middle class is being destroyed to benefit a few. This is a coup. Our government is now controlled by the big money interests who cause these boom and bust cycles and profit from both. It didn’t happen over night, It’s a battle that’s been raging for thousands of years. The people of this country have been lulled to sleep and I don’t know what’s going to wake them up.
    “Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws.”
    Mayer Amschel Rothschild, International Banker
    What can we do about It? If you want to understand what’s happening and why, follow the money.

    There is an effort now to gain control of our future. The Federal Reserve Transparency Act – HR 1207 now has 179 co-sponsors. Learn about that.

    It’s nice to think that we could create a more just government and a more sane world by electing the right people and implementing the right policies, I wouldn’t bet the farm on it though, we have too much momentum in the wrong direction. In the meantime, get involved in your local community. Help create sustainable economies. Grow your own garden. By doing so we can deprive “the system” of our energies. Make your own place a place of beauty, sanity and refuge.

    with best intentions,
