Still “Kicking”, and still breathing!


Though it has been quite a while since I was last active on this and a few other blogs,

One of those things about not having internet at home (DAMNED internet market needs MORE competition, not more meddlesome regulation!), it makes things a bit more difficult to keep on top of things online (especially concerning my own websites). There is absolutely NO REASON, whatsoever, that internet service should be so damned expensive (AND – with bandwidth caps too???).

So, it does take me a bit longer to get around to things online (because I also have a very busy “outside life” too).

At least my self-hosted blog site seems to be well-secured and “hardened”. It took me many months of researching, testing, and implementing good, solid security protocols that would work well with WordPress (and hopefully with the soon-to-be installed WooCommerce too). Once I can get my other websites restored AND equally secured, I want to start selling some of my own hand-crafted items online.

Also,

For those who may have an interest,

Because I have had a registered organization within my home state for quite some time (BTW: called “TEMPLE OF THE ANCIENT DRAGONS Shamanic Ministries”), I was seriously considering converting it to an LLC (Limited-Liability Company) or perhaps a full-blown S-type Corporation (using the “INC” tag at the end of the name, if you will) – so that it can become a fully-fledged “religious” institution. (By “religious”, I do not mean anything doctrinal nor dogmatic, like the usual established “religions”, but a place of spiritual worship and reverence – as well as a place of “Higher-Learning”.) Therefore, I am in the process of designing and writing a full Seminary Course on Dragon-Spirituality and Dragon-Shamanism. I hope to create a fairly substantive and thoughtful course, for those who wish to learn as I have learned: By actually Experiencing the presence of the Great Dragons, as well as working as partners with them. I want to realize the dream of sharing the relationship with the many varied and very Ancient and Wise Dragons, so that others who are genuinely interested, can find and further build upon their own relationships with the Ancient Dragons. This is to become the center-point of where others discover their own personal “religion”, and how it can become a great and wonderful avenue of personal empowerment and enlightenment – with the Dragons’ help and guidance. — So, this may sound like a tall order for me to accomplish. However, being that I no longer have the external interferences that plagued my personal mission for years (bad relationships have a habit of doing these kinds of disruptions, often to be felt for years afterward), there should be NO BARRIERS to my accomplishing this “Labor of Love” any longer.

So, the “Temple of The Ancient Dragons” (as a Shamanic Ministry, and then some),

Is to be the starting point of this personal mission, and that in which to build upon the successes, and upon more successes. As I have seen it for many a year, the great Wisdom of the Ancient Dragons is now needed more than ever, if we, as a species and kind, are to make it through these troubling times of this age. Our Ancient, Earthly Ancestors had the power and the wisdom in their times, to see themselves through the troubles of their day. So there is no reason why We can not rediscover those same principles and wisdoms, and apply them to our own daily lives for the better.

So, until we Meet again,

– Ne’Shae Daasha! ! !

“Temple of The Ancient Dragons” – is back on-line!


For those who have been wondering, waiting, and in any other fashion: pondering;

The Temple of The Ancient Dragons has been put back into action, and made some improvements and a little “house-keeping”, too.

Most of my new posts about Dragon Spirituality, Shamanism, and other general Naturalist/Pagan/Celestial Spirituality will be published there ( at: https://www.templeoftheancientdragons.org/ ). Yes, the site is protected with SSL, so there should be very little problem with “middle-man”-type attacks, etc. Also, the “Temple’s Guestbook”, my “Home of Dragon’s Eye”, and other informative pages/areas will be restored to full fairly soon.

After nearly a year of being off-line (and the unfortunate series of “hang-ups”, let-downs, distractions, etc.),

I can firmly say: “The Dragon-Temple” is BACK, and the Dragons shall be honored once more! ! !

A WELL-PLAYED HAND: HOW AMERICA (AND THE WORLD) HAVE BEEN FOOLED (Yet again).


After a weekend of deep thought and reflection,

I had to wake up and realize, once again, that I too, felt as if I also had a personal stake in the “election” of 2016. Though, I took a “wait-and-see” approach to the whole scene, I still felt pulled in to the festive look and feel of the moment. Then the proverbial “hang-over”, after the party, finally wears off, and the truth once again, shows THE reality.

To make things fairly simple and easy to comprehend: The election process, in MOST of the world’s governments and regimes, still falls firmly into place, under the control of those who have decided “election outcomes” long before the People become aware of WHO will become the next contenders. All our hopes, dreams, and many other desires, are well-known to those who are firmly in control of the world’s systems. These great and cunning wielders of power have had many years to perfect the art of illusion.

One thing that serves me very well when doing an “after-analysis” (or an “after-action review”, as the more military-minded may refer to it) of the whole process, and such things like “hotly-contested” events, like “elections”, and that is memory of past events, and how they played out. The “elections” of 2016 in the United States of America being NO EXCEPTION. When one can take a detached, dispassionate view of neutrality, towards such events, one often sees the sheer cunning and amazing amount of effort that went into crafting so convincing an illusion.

It should be plain as day to some, by now, that these “elections” are pure fantasy and only give the appearance, illution if you will, of any real choice. What is most amazing to me: Much of the “alternative media”, and other small “journalism” sites and organizations, have also fallen into the well-played illusion. Some of the alternative journalists, I used to trust in very much, have begun to show some of the amount of control exerted upon them. Certain sites and blogs, once use to report and showcase the truth about the controlled system of “elections”, and the political power-plays for control over public perception. We all love the idea of the “good guys” championing over the “bad guys”, but this also distracts from the very fact that BOTH sides are usually firmly under the control of the VERY SAME SYSTEM AND ITS MANAGERS! It does one very little good to “bet on a horse in the race, that is -against- the adversary’s interests, when it is that -adversary- who owns ALL the horses in the race!”

Let’s start examining this previous “election”, by going over some of the more interesting details that many may not notice.

Typically,

Our “elections” are often commonly-understood as “voting for the lesser of two evils”.

The problem with this theory is, if we are STILL voting for an evil, what are we really accomplishing? No matter what we do, “evil” still wins, whether a little, or a lot! Just as Mercury is toxic and deadly, whether given at the rate of 10uG (micro-grams) per day, or up to 10mG per day, the end result is – YOU WILL STILL END UP DEAD, BECAUSE MERCURY (AT EITHER OF THOSE RATES) IS STILL LETHAL! ! ! Yet, we are expected (and encouraged) to ignore that reality, when it is the “pushers” who stand to benefit in the end. All one needed to do, prior to some crafty changes in election-financing laws, was look at how each candidate’s campaign was either financed or supported.

An interesting observation here:

One candidate was already worth billions of U.S. dollars when he ran for office. The other chose to use many hidden sources of political funding, most of it outright illegal, to fund the campaign. The “billionaire” even played well, the idea of waving off the President’s normal salary schedule (a brilliant “hero” move for the gullible masses!) to look even more like he was “for the little guy”! Yet, no one thinks to question in HOW it was he was able to attain, and even maintain such levels of wealth and power, in a grossly corrupt and unbalanced world economy as we have now. There are many other innovative and entrepreneurial souls out there in the human side of the world, but so very few ever get to realize such status and wealth (usually, only after he/she has also sold out on principles and ethics). PLUS, if such wealth is based solely upon the value of a controlled currency, or based solely on “paper”, then such wealth is unstable and can soon be worthless overnight, if deemed so by those who control the world economy and its basis of value! This has been the sheer weakness behind debt-based economies, and “monetized debt” (to use the bankers’ own parlance) for as many centuries that such economic models have been practiced. So, would you STILL trust such an individual to stand against a system, in which his own wealth is dependent upon? One who is worth so much in “paper”, is not likely to challenge the power of those who control the value of his “paper”. – Sounds like the perfect puppet, to install into a position of power, and “public trust”!

Now, an old adage that should be resurfacing on account of this well-played illusion-of-choice, called the “Election of 2016”:

The most believable lies, always incorporate large amounts of the truth. ”

Could this also be said of a well-crafted illusion, like the “illusion of choice”? If Candidate “A” was a devout Communist, and Candidate “B” was lesser a Communist, but more of a “light Socialist”, yet NEITHER truly supported the Individual’s right of choice, have we really gained anything by voting for “the lesser of two evils” when in what is supposed to be a “Representative Republic”? If Candidate “A” was for MORE government intervention and involvement in personal matters, while Candidate “B” was for MORE rights for big-business and more decision-making BY the executives of big-business, yet – the “little guy” is STILL left without any choice in the matter as to he/she would live, and what rights he/she can expect to enjoy? – Do the People still win in some way, or is that simply another illusion of “choice”, crafted by a convincing “second-hand reality” we call “elections”?

Now, let’s get to the bottom of this scheme, and how it has worked so well, year after year after year.

The globalists know very well how angry the world’s People are, with the disintegrating quality of life, the unfairness of the “system” and its players’ treatment of the People, the constant state of warfare and endless destruction of life and of the People’s lands. The globalists know that the People are getting combative, because they are becoming much better informed as to what is going on, and how corrupt and CRIMINAL this “world system” is. The globalists know that their power is being openly challenged by an ever-increasing number of very unhappy People. They know that the “world wide web” has become an exceptional tool and learning resource for up-to-the-minute updated info on what is happening around the world. The globalists know that they are having to change tactics, and become more innovative in exerting their power over the People of this world. They are also having to devise new ways of hiding the mechanisms of their control. – I very seriously doubt that these globalists are really in any state of panic (another well-performed public image) over their control system being actively challenged. They have usually been several steps ahead of the rest of humanity. With the incredible rise in surveillance technologies, and how to more-discreetly employ them, they are constantly knowledgeable on the latest trends in human behavior, and the general attitudes of the human population.

Therefore,

Having “elections” step up the excitement, create the “hopeful” atmosphere, and various other cunning forms of emotional-manipulations, these globalists have once again shown how masterful they are, at controlling the human population through constant manipulation. This being very much the part in the Grand Illusion, that very aware folks like Jon Rappoport, Dr. Ron Paul, and a few others have thought of as “The Matrix”. (This, in reference to the movie mini-series by that name.) – The problem is, if you partook of this shameful, illusion-of-choice “election” of 2016 (or many previous ones) without realizing the falsehoods behind them, did you REALLY take the “Red Pill”??? – Is taking any of these proverbial “Pills”, doing any good?

Do any of you even remember, let alone KNOW, that Dr. Ron Paul ran for President of the United States, three times, and THREE TIMES, the “media” did not even acknowledge his candidacy until late in the game? The media even refused to acknowledge Dr. Paul’s stunning victories in the various “straw-polls”, leading up to the primaries. Yet, Mr. Donald Trump was supposedly so hated for his “anti-establishment” talking-points and rhetoric, that the media spent countless hours on negative publicity of him and his campaign (think: “FREE-PUBLICITY”)!?!? – What’s more, the “seismic shift” of the “election” exit polls? ? ? – Something fishy here, perhaps? ? ?

Then,

The usual public reaction upon “reporting” the final exit poll results! – That was the masterpiece of this wonderful illusion-of-choice, we call “elections”. What’s more, EVEN much of the “alternative media” got behind the wheel in helping to steer public opinion towards “the underdog candidate”! ! ! – PURE BRILLIANCE of executing a well-played, well-scripted illusion-of-choice, we call “elections”! – Does this not smell of something funny to you? ? ? Does this not have a familiar ring, from events of past “elections”? ? ? Do you not feel like you were played for fools, as I did for even a short time? ? ?

Dr. Ron Paul nailed it on the head, on his website several months ago: “America may be in for a big disappointment come election day.” – NICE, Dr. Paul! I’d say YOU nailed it right on the head!

From my taking a “wait-and-see” attitude, and “giving the Donald a chance”, has served me well to cause me to “back up, and regroup”, and really SEE the Big Game as it has been played upon America AND the world. Just seeing some of the earliest choices for cabinet-level positions, has had me very concerned at what these united states of America face after Inauguration Day of 2017! This Nationalists’ “Dream Team”, also looks more like a “War-Hawks’ Dream Team”, a “Corporatists’ Dream Team”, a “Privatizationists’ Dream Team”, and “More Corporate-Welfare Dream Team”, an “Israel-Firster Dream Team”, and a “Facists’ Dream Team”! – Each and every future “appointment”, has some serious history behind him/her, and none of it very good for this “Land of The Free, Home of The Brave”!

Think about it for a moment. Where does John Bolton fit in, when it comes to the grand game? How about Frank Gaffney? What about William Kristol? So far, ALL THREE of these folks are part of the list of authors of the dreaded “Rebuilding America’s Defenses: A Project for the New American Century”, published on the AMERICAN ENTERPRISE INSTITUTE’s (A.E.I.) website! ! ! – These three are pro-war, neo-con, neo-feudalists! – Is THAT the sort of people we, as a Nation, want deciding policy for the next four or even eight years? ? ? Then, we have Senator Jeff Sessions, a definite pro-war, neo-con, neo-feudalist type! Then, *** GASP!!! ***, we have Ingrid Newkirk as a ‘possible’ cabinet-level pick? I seriously hope not! She is one of those who wishes to get government to outlaw any and all forms of human interaction with ANY non-human animals! This EVEN GOES FOR COMPANION ANIMALS AND ANY THERAPY WHICH INVOLVES HUMAN AND ANIMAL INTERACTION! Nevermind that some of today’s brighter areas of modern medicine, has seen animal-based human therapy as exceptionally beneficial and healing (we are talking physical, emotional, and social therapies, where (non-human) animals play a very big part in the healing process). Yet, the folks like Ms. Newkirk, many members of P.E.T.A., and EVEN the infamously corrupt A.S.P.C.A. see ANY human-and-animal interaction as detrimental to the (non-human) animals, and a violation of the (non-human) animals’ rights! As to Ret. Lt.Gen. Michael Flynn, being billed as “anti-ISIS”, I have major concerns of him also being very pro-war, with some neo-con slant. Call me paranoid, but the fact does not change that we are STILL talking “Washington insiders” making up a considerable portion of what is shaping up to be the next administration. As to Mike Pompeo, I am very troubled on his continued support of the high-tech surveillance “police-state” that we are having to endure now. It was already bad enough that the Obama Administration saw to it, that the “surveillance state” continued to grow, far beyond any reasonable boundary necessary for “national security”. So, Mr. Pompeo’s stance on this issue has me seriously concerned if the United States of America will ever get to enjoy the right of privacy again. I am still out looking for more info on Mr. Steve Bannon. I have not been too impressed with Breitbart “News”, over the years, and especially with its subtle, but noticeable “neo-con” slanted view of the issues. It seems that when Andrew Breitbart (the site’s founder) was murdered (as I see it), his legacy “news” organization greatly changed in its way of reporting. Either way, it looks like another set-up upon America in the making!

I’d hate to be the one to say it, folks but . . .

– “AMERICA, I THINK WE HAVE BEEN *NEO*-CONNED, ONCE AGAIN!”

It makes NO DIFFERENCE to simply trade in one globalist puppet for another! Something that I really wish the “alternative media” would rather have not forgotten, in this frenzied “cult-of-personality” that occurred this last “election” season (as has been the case in many previous “election” seasons). No matter which direction the exit-poll results were swayed, the “Matrix” is still the ultimate winner, NOT the People! Time to wake up, People. If your “vote” really meant anything, if your desire for changes for the better was a real passion, if your heart really was set on making life better, not only here in America, but the around the world in general, YOU would be an active player in that process of change! Our “officials”, in their present capacity, and in the fact that they are still “human”, and prone to those very same human tendencies of being corruptible, should NOT be the ones to be held responsible for those changes YOU seek. YOU, ME, and all individual human beings should be an active part of the process of those changes. So long as we continue to trust others to do FOR us, that which WE should be doing on our own, we will continue to be betrayed by those who have expertly USED our feelings and emotions against us, and used our political processes as a distraction from our REAL responsibilities.

When one begins to fully understand the concept of “controlled-opposition”, and one begins to see controlled “elections” (and the media-controlled selection of ‘candidates’ to parade before the people), one can finally come to realize how PHONY the whole “election” process really is! ! ! – This is also a world-wide program. When we have the proverbial “left” on the one side, and the proverbial “right” (or, supposed “alt-right” by the controlled leftists) on the other, and we have the master “string-pullers” controlling BOTH (as IF there was really any substantive difference whatsoever) parties, sides, or factions (whichever term works best, here), does it REALLY make much difference when the program of “GLOBALISM” still proceeds ahead, as planned, regardless how fast or how slow its progress? This is very much like being presented with the choice of what color chains shall you willingly accept? There is NEVER any mention of, “WHY are ANY chains necessary nor warranted”? TRUE Freedom is NOT for sale, at ANY price!

We, The People are supposed to be the guarantors of our liberties and freedoms.

Our Nation’s Original Founders had those thoughts and beliefs, centuries ago. They communicated those beliefs and rationales through their various memoirs, speeches, and through the various charters they formed. They perfectly understood the absolute need for an informed and very involved public, when it came to safeguarding the very rights, freedoms, and liberties they themselves held so dear and inviolate. They understood the historic fact that governments, of every stripe, color, and type could easily devolve into tyranny and despotism, if left to their own devices, because of a disinterested, uninvolved People. Why “vote” for more slavery, more taxes, less freedom, fewer choices, more war, and more death? ? ? Why even vote at all, if you are not even going to accept that “voting” is only A PART OF YOUR “CIVIC DUTY”? The rest of these “civic duties” should also include; constantly keeping your officials accountable to the Rule of Law (that is, the “Common Law”, NOT fiat law), reminding them of their duties towards their fellow countrymen in favor over their own personal interests, honor and keep their solemn oaths – even “campaign promises”, to foster the enshrined principles of “Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness” that helped to make this Nation great, and guard against tyranny in even the smallest crevices of society. – If WE are NOT actively doing these things, as we go about our daily lives, then we are giving our consent to being controlled (“governed”) by the whims of those in power.

Thus, this past “election” season should be as a reminder to us all, to not let ourselves be distracted from our TRUE responsibilities: “Guaranteeing our own freedoms and liberties, as well as those of others, by keeping constant vigil, even when things get chaotic. These are NOT responsibilities to be so easily handed over to those in
positions of authority and public trust!

That includes toward the future President of our Nation, and beyond.

Be smart, America! Be wise, be wary, be vigilant, and be ever watchful, in safeguarding our own freedoms and liberties, because the tyrants ever labor, through day and night, to devise new ways, to enslave us all, and keep us ignorant of the fact! – PLEASE, don’t go back to sleep, now! Just because the “elections” are over, and “the game” is on the T.V., does NOT mean it is time to relax, and let the “system” do its thing! Too many times, do our “elections” end up being like “beauty pageants” and “who can out swing whom” trials, instead of really getting down to actual solutions and reforming or abolishing bad policy. This political pendulum swinging of “left-and-right-and-back-again” has done much to confuse and distract from the most pressing issues: Our National Pride, Our economic viability, The alienation of Our Individual AND Collective Natural Rights, and most of all – Getting the U.S.A. OUT of the business of being the “world’s policeman”. These are just a few areas to start the changes for the better, but we really need to start somewhere. Those changes need to be because of all of us, and our commitment to BEING that change. We can not trust our destinies to those in office, without our being ever-so-watchful of them.

WE need to stay alert, in order to stay alive, or we WILL lose everything, and not even know it happened!

Oh No! Don’t do it, Mr. Trump!


It seems to me that,

The manipulators of political-control in this country, are trying their best to influence the future political make up of the next administration. Now, with the possible appointments of past pro-war “neo-cons”, to the heart of the possible Trump Presidential Cabinet, leaves me and many other TRUE Liberty-Lovers very highly concerned. Time for the Great People of this Great Land to take a stand now, and champion true liberty and freedom by decrying the personages being seriously considered for appointments to positions of political power. OUR very future is at stake (still, and ever more so).

“Trust is slowly earned, and easily lost.”

Part of my initial reasoning for taking a “wait-and-see” approach, before placing any considerable trust within President-Elect Donald J Trump:

Was in remembering his visits with Henry Kissinger (the former Secretary of State who got us involved in the quagmire of the Vietnam War), Newt Gingrich (who has been consistently pro-war in his desire for further meddling into the affairs of the Middle East, especially when he was still the Speaker of the House). These two figures have been involved in many shady dealings and pro-war policies that have helped to cost the united states of America, untold billions of dollars, and many tens- (if not, hundreds-) of thousands of American and allied lives. The “united states” is STILL feeling the economic back-spin from these egregious wars!

More bothersome still,

It seems he is also considering appointing  John Bolton (who fully supported and championed the big lie of “Saddam’s possession of weapons of mass-destruction” claim, and its attendant excuse for the devastation of the countries of Afghanistan and Iraq [let alone, their miserable conditions after all that!] ), as well as William Kristol (one of several pro-war neo-cons who drafted the infamous document (excuse) for war with Afghanistan and Iraq: “Project For The New American Century“, out of: The “American Enterprise Institute”, Along with Bolton, Frank Gaffney (of “The National Center for Security Policy”- another pro-war neo-con “think tank”) – as another possible appointee.

It seems the more things “change”, the MORE they remain the same!

“Have we NOT been down this road BEFORE? ? ?”

What does it take (besides a massive conversation with The People) to get the point across that: It is THESE kinds of people who get us all into more “hot water”, and into more expensive outlays (also in terms of great tragic loss of human life). We have had ENOUGH of these pecuniary, expensive, unnecessary “wars”, and definitely had enough of the over-policing of our (usually) peaceful Peoples of these united states (all under the excuse of “national security”)!

Please, Oh Dear God(dess), PLEASE – NO MORE of these Washington Insiders! ! !

Get them ALL out of the way, and out of places for them to do us all harm! If you do not show us how serious you are about “cleaning house”, when it comes to dealing with the venomous “lobbyists” and “global-loyalists” (starting with some of your “appointments”), you have all but betrayed the trust that MANY of America’s voters have placed within you, Mr. Trump. It is past time to start ditching many of the “professional politicians” who have been gleefully feeding from the public trough, all the while we have more and more American People, left upon the streets to starve – and with no real future of opportunities left to them!

It is past time, to make some serious, realistic, and ethical changes, in HOW our Representative-Republic does the People’s Business.

OMG! The “Trump-Haters” Abound, And Not a Thing To Credit The Elections.


 Oh boy! Two days after the election results are finalized, and WHOA! This mis-info, dis-info, and every type of psychological manipulation ever imaged is being played out in these united states.

I did not see this much hatred with the loss of Albert Gore’s run.

Did not see this much hatred with James E. Carter’s loss of s second-term bid.

Did not see this much hatred with George Herbert Walker Bush’s bid for a second-term.

WTF, boys and girls!!!

Have we truly lost all sense of reason and dignity, that we have folks even vowing to to work against the new President-Elect – EVEN by “Republican” members of BOTH Houses of Congress?!?!?

What’s more,

What about all the stupid, asinine death threats – all over an election result? – I even got a good look at the election results map of the united states. Ya know, the one that is color-coded as in Red for “conservative” (or Republican) and Blue for “liberal” (Democrat)? ? ? – Seems pretty clear cut-and-dried to me! A majority of America’s People (to include many African-Americans, Hispanics, and others) have voted in droves in the hopes for REAL CHANGE! The election results could be given as a sign that “America is FED-UP with the sour direction this once harmonious country has been heading, for at LEAST (28) twenty-eight years!” The past “leadership” has been leading us all down the drain, and into absolute despotism.

This election result was made possible by enough People saying, “We are SICK and TIRED of going nowhere but DOWN!”

And now,

The “other party’s” favorites (mainly, ones who have benefited most from all the hand-outs, paid for by OTHER PEOPLE’s MONEY) are fearing the absolute worst, by – behaving their worst! – Such sick, twisted, demented, and immature children, who need to grow up and start seriously thinking, WHAT it is that will help this Nation heal from the wounds of the past (and some, not-too-distant past), and HOW “WE” (together), can make this country a proud place to live in again. (George Soro’s, Bill Gates, David Rockefeller, et al – need NOT apply!)

As I said before,

I am not for counting this as a full victory yet.

Mr. Trump, You will have to prove to me, and many others, that WE, THE PEOPLE, placed our faith and confidence in the right Being, for the job as President of the United States. I would have personally trusted Dr. Jill Stein a little more, but I am sooo relieved that the Bush-Clinton Dynasty may FINALLY be done, and on the way out!

BTW, America:

Just because you voted, and your vote just happened to be one of the winning side,

Does NOT mean your (collectively “OUR”) responsibilities are over and done with! The VOTE, is only the first step, from a series of steps, to helping revitalize our great Nation. Our “collective homework” begins by making sure the reasons for our votes are honored, respected, and OBEYED. We, The People are supposed to be the guarantors of our freedoms and liberties. The “elected” are supposed to support that which We, The People have ordained, in line and thinking of the original intent of these United States of America, and the reasons of its founding!

In other words,

DO NOT GO BACK TO SLEEP AND FORGET YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES! WE, need to make damned sure that our “votes” were not in vain.

Thank you, and good day!

The Roar Heard ‘Round The World.


Well, this year’s election came and went, and oh WOW, what of the “fireworks” that emanated!

I will not be celebrating yet, because I still need to see action, that will prove whether or not, U.S.A. truly did have a “choice”. Have seen many different instances of the various campaign promises and “oaths”, and have been oft disappointed at the REALITY of what became of those lofty-sounding promises. We should all know that the average life-expectancy of a campaign promise, is good until “election day” is over. A sad, but oft repeated fact of any entrenched political system.

So,

My plea to the new President-Elect,

Please be honorable, and truthfully honor the promises you made, publicly, to the very People (an apparent majority, to include much of the “minority” segments of the population) who placed their trust and confidence in you. Please be thoughtful of the fact that, the U.S.A. was once the kind of Nation, that fostered the political and business climate, that enabled you to succeed (and fail, a few times – only to “bounce back”, brilliantly) in achieving your dreams! We all would very much like to see the U.S.A. re-embrace those true, free and open, entrepreneurial market principles. The “American Dream” needs revitalizing, and rebirth. The corrupt, in our business circles, need to be reined in, and encouraged to support our domestic market, and labor force again. The corrosive “speculation markets” must also be reined in! They are what further the predatory, inflationary practices, that are destroying the U.S.A.’s global competitiveness.

Please see the Nation for its People, and the People of this Nation.

Our Nation, and its original confederated colonies (later, “Republics”), was born of a revolutionary idea: “That a Free People, can become a Great People, in a Great Land.” – This idea, STILL rings true, today. All the various “social-engineers” and “think tanks” have accomplished, is the dilution and outright destruction of the virtues that, though it was imperfect, set the stage and the evolution, of a Nation to become better than anything like it before; NOT out of racism, NOT out of class-ism, NOT from any “one-size-fits-all” political approach, but from the true drive to succeed, and share the benefits by our own choice, and actions, out of our genuine love and compassion for our Brothers and Sisters (human, and non-human). We do NOT need excessive regulation upon our lives! We do NOT need excessive taxation, to support those things and programs that actually weaken us! We do NOT need to throw our money away, to foreign nations and states, under the idea that we “need” to buy their friendship and allegiance (foreign aid)! We need to be able to help ourselves first, and then – at our personal option – help others who are also in need. Genuine charity speaks for itself, in the actions it is bestowed, rather than “commanded” by bureaucrats, who wish to picture themselves as “saviors of mankind“.

– “By their fruits, Ye shall Know Them.”

Please be as real, honest, and open – about being human, being REAL, and being “American”!

Though I may not be of legal (Constitutional) qualifications to ever “run for this office”, myself,

I will still support those, who support the truth and spiritual principles of the Constitution of the United States (of America) of 1787, and it being foundationed upon the Declaration of Independence of 1776, and its tenets. At least this, until a closer-to-perfect system of freedom, liberty, peace, love, and light be the basis of life for our wonderful Republic, and its many State-Republics.

Until then,

I will remain a casual observer, but a hopeful one! That is, until you have proven yourself to me, to be the REAL DEAL.

Let’s Set this Story Straight, for Once and for All, Shall We?


Very interesting that a particular story seems to be making very vocal rounds about the news world and the internet:

I am talking about the hunting excursion, in Africa, involving an American dentist, who apparently has some serious money to burn, and is being held up world wide as a heinous villain. I am talking about Mr. Walter Palmer and the hunting-guide outfit that accompanied him to the spot where he shot a Lion named “Cecil”. It is very disturbing that the cacophonous calls of him being a “murderer” and an absolutely horrible human being for his part in the killing of Cecil.

So,

Is this to be another call to eliminate the institution of “hunting”, and ban all sorts of outdoorsmanship of any similarity? – The shrill, emotionally-charged chorus-calls behind such movements and publicized statements just shows the irrationality of the whole issue by various groups of people who have only emotion and fantasy to base their actions on. It just the sort of “touchy-feely” opportunism that overrides commonsense and rational thinking, that begets unrealistic and often totalitarian responses of more regulation and “laws” to further regulate the people’s activities. However, what is really being accomplished here, and to what end?

We all like to see the cute little babies of virtually all animal species, and watch their playful antics. We all enjoy a good story of a beautiful family in the wilds, and the often breath-taking views of the scenery on a bright, sun-lit day somewhere far off in the distance. However, are these same “loving people” also in touch with the darker shades of Nature, and the many horrors that often play out in the most unexpected and heart-wrenching fashion? Do these people truly understand the principles and actions behind the Will of Nature? – Methinks not!

I have personally seen much of BOTH faces of the natural world, being that I also live very near some of the most desolate and most unforgiving environments that Nature has to offer the great Northwest of the United States. I have personally seen the constant struggle for survival of many different species of life, both large and very small, as they live precariously from day to day. Life is very hard, and sometimes – very short for some individuals in the Natural World. There is Life and Death in Nature, and sometimes, either or neither can be very beautiful, or very horrible! Nature just is what it is. Nature can be both merciful, and heart-rendingly merciless in Her dealings with any and all species and individuals.

We, as a supposedly highly-sentient species, should KNOW all of this, even if by merely observing these truths played out in front of us, daily and always. Hunting is the province of the predator species (which includes we humans), and the prey – the subject of the hunt. (I know, I know! We have “grocery stores”! WHO needs to hunt anymore?) – Well, to rely upon an artificiated convenience (like grocery stores, pharmacies, etc.) without truly acknowledging that these conveniences come at great effort, and great cost to continue, do we even realize that these “conveniences”, may one day, no longer be convenient nor accessible due to some unforeseen “disaster” or disruption in the supply chains. If all of our conveniences were to suddenly become “unavailable” and not-so convenient, what happens to those who lack the basic survival skills needed to navigate through those contingencies???

If we are to take a close look at things, rationally, in today’s world, we should begin to realize that Nature had the first recipe for existence AND survival. Nature’s adage: “Survival of the fittest”. This means that these terrible struggles that most of Nature’s (non-human) children go through, are part of the tempering process by which the strongest and most able the species, are the ones who stand the best chance of survival, and go on to produce more of their species. This is an immutable fact of Nature!

Also what’s pertinent in respect to Nature:

Waste not, want not!

We, as a sentient species, should also know that Nature wants to maintain a balance in the natural world. If we are to have plenty of game and such, in which to hunt AND (hopefully) utilize to the fullest, we should be smart about taking ONLY WHAT WE WILL RIGHTLY USE. – I have never been a big fan of “trophy”-hunting, as most of the “trophy-hunters” seem only interested in obtaining something to hang on the walls of their homes as a memento of their “conquering Nature”! What about the other usable parts and pieces of these animals? There are many hungry people in this world (by artificiated design of the globalists) who would be fed by the remains of the carcass of the deceased. What about the parts usable for clothing, as there surely are many who can not afford to procure their own clothing for protection from the elements? AND, what about being grateful for the challenge the animal gave while it was still alive, and grateful for its destiny being placed into your hands? (As like the various ancient peoples did.)

* * *

The only crimes I can conceivably consider for Mr. Palmer AND the hunting-guide outfit who traveled with him:

Mr. Palmer: – Poaching, by means of illegal enticement of an animal from a preserve, for the purposes of killing it outside of that preserve. – And – Waste and Abuse of animal through cruel and unusual treatment and negligence. –> “If you wound it, you had best go after it and finish killing it!

The Hunting Guides: – Accessory to poaching, aiding and abetting poaching, conspiracy to commit and/or allow, and complicity to poaching, aiding and abetting the illegal enticement of a game animals from a preserve, for the purposes of allowing the hunter to kill it outside of that preserve.

The most damning of all:

If Mr. Palmer did indeed allow the animal HE WOUNDED to wander and suffer from his inflicted injuries for over fourty hours, then shame on HIM! – I am from “The Old School” of hunting: “If you shoot it and wound it, YOU go after it and FINISH THE JOB of killing it, so as to put it out of its misery!

There ARE at least some hunters with a rational moral of ethics.

To those who wish to see the total ending of all hunting, period:

– “You are outside the bounds of rationality and reason. Perhaps you do not TRULY understand how cruel Nature can be, and often is, especially when it is Her predators doing the hunting.

I appologize for the infrequent posts.


Things have been rather hectic these last few weeks.

I am getting ready to move into an apartment very soon, and my dear Dad is right now in the hospital in the Cardiac Unit Intensive Care. So far, my third day’s visit with him, and he looks like he is improving in general mobility and outlook. Now, I positively know where MY stubbornness comes from! ( * * LOL! * * ) Anyway, been an especially busy week (this and last one), as I have quite a limited amount of time on-line (hopefully, until I am moved in and settled).

So, please bear with me, as I still try to get life sorted out.

I want to graciously thank all of my “followers” and readers out there. All of you are the main reason why I keep this blog going! THAT is what makes it all the worthwhile, even in the busiest of times.

– Thank you, and many Blessings, to all of you.

Attention CITIZENS OF THE USA: Why I will NOT Be Celebrating “4th of July” The Same Way You Will Be.


Angry Red Dragon. (c) Anne Stokes – at: http://www.topdesignmag.com/

I find very little reason to be celebratory of a now-shallow, futile LIE of a “holiday”, in light of the way the United States of America’s current state of affairs be, these days!

Instead,

I will spend the day, which is more like an ordinary day to me, with lots of prayer and supplication to those I pray to, for the sake of all of us, as a “nation” of People, not “laws”. I will also seek to spend a majority of the day teaching the People WHY this day should be better honored and cherished, by actually living it to its full meaning and intent: “The preservation and expression of FREEDOM and LIBERTY for ALL, not just the select, politically-favored few.

We have, for far too long, allowed those who are unfit to rule over us, dictate what we can and can not do, what we can and can not say, what we can and can not think, what we can and can not believe, what are and are not our enforceable rights, – all under “the color of law”! We have been superficial, very lazy, lying to ourselves, allowed ourselves to be continuously lied to and about, allowed others to dictate to us who and what we are, and worst of all – SUPPORTED ALL OF THESE WRONGS, BECAUSE: “THEY ARE THE LAW”! I am soooo sick of hearing it, time and time again, excuses of every stripe and color being used to justify WHY we should give up on the remainder of our rights, and enjoy the “safety” being provided to us through this legalized “protection rackett”, all because the so-called experts and “legal scholars” keep telling us “it’s for your own good, your protection“.

So really,

Just exactly WHAT reason is there to “celebrate” the ever-so-increasing, gradual corruption and enslavement of an entire “nation of The People” that presupposed itself to be the “Land of the Free, Home of the Brave“??? Have we been so softened up by all the TV-sports, “enter(train)ment”, “church” sermons telling us to “obey, without question all orders by government“, and the continued assaults on our personal health and actual safety FROM despotism, all because it is all supposed to be “good for us“??? Even the genuine Divinely-Inspired Souls would see the huge disconnect from reality here! Especially those of us who, in reality, “walk with the Dragons and their delegated guides” should know the difference between these lies (all of them) from what is supposed to be the Natural, Divine Reality of Being, AND experiencing life – and all it has to offer!

So please indulge me, for a moment,

As I relate and pass on to you, WHY the Dragons, and the Dragon-Symbolism mean so much to me, WHY they play such a significant role in my daily life, AND WHY they are the basis of my spirituality and my practices. This may also explain WHY the modern “church” despises anything related to “dragon” and dragon-symbolism. This may take us a little down that unknown path of what it is truly like to be “dragon” and/or of the Dragon-Soul. This is a path I explore, every moment of every day. Not a single day passes by, where I do not at least render a prayer, a “thank you”, or some spiritual and Divine act of interaction with the Dragons of the other realms, and of this one. There is not one instance where I would ever be curseful or upbraiding towards my Dragon Family and their (and my) allies.

For one,

My belief system became evident, several years ago, as to WHY it was actually incompatible with most (if not virtually ALL) of the current “new-age” movement, as well as incompatible with the modern “churches”: It was because it is a path of Self-Realization, and individual responsibility. Dragons grow old and wise on the food of individual-empowerment through realization, personal responsibility and accountability, and living to the highest standards of integrity, coupled with knowing which battles are worth fighting for, and fighting the valiant fight when called upon to do so. The might of a Dragon, is in his (or her) Heart, to start with. The Great Fires of Courage and Strength, are what powers any goal a Dragon may have. The Heart, is where all the energy and power is concentrated, by force of Will, and discharged towards achieving the intended goal. This is done with forethought, measurement, and a sharp focus on achieving the end result, while braving the “elements” of fear, uncertainty, and apprehension, through constant practice and refinement. The Dragon does NOT shy away from controversy, as a matter of any perceived political pursuasion nor pressures, in order to achieve that which is right, balanced, and in keeping with the Divine Natural Law of things.

Two,

The Dragon seeks total liberty to be, and to express itself as a Divine and Powerful Being. The Dragon knows when He/She is being imposed upon, by an opposing force that seeks His/Her enslavement and eventual “destruction”. The Dragon is not so easily enslaved, and not so easily beguiled into accepting a servile role. The Dragon is a co-creator in the Universe, and beyond. One of the main things of a Creator AND/OR Co-Creator goes on to “create” (and, if necessary, destroy), are Realities. These be created from the voids of Chaos, and the ashes of the various false “realities”. – THAT, is why many “churches” and their doctrines fear the Dragon, and all He/She stands for!

Thirdly,

In talking about this day, in the supposed “Age of Reason”, it seems that everything about today, and all that occurs now, is everything BUT reasonable. Those who scream the loudest about “tolerance”, are everything BUT tolerant of the differences of opinions, beliefs, political thinking and persuasion, and life habits. The “Age of Reason” has been anything BUT reasonable, across the entirety of the Natural “Human Condition” and experience! The Dragon is all about Reason, and the Natural consequences behind it, and BECAUSE of it. The Dragon constantly may define and redefine His/Her own reality, and affect a part of the shared reality. It is THIS particular Power that most modern “Witches” pay lipservice to, but often times, relegate to wishful thinking on their part. Then, THAT becomes nothing more than a mere fantasy, to only be talk-shopped about, but not truly acted upon! The Dragon, should be regarded by ALL witches, as the ultimate, archetypal essence of what it is to be, a Divine Being, filled with the Power to make any possibility happen.

To bring this all Home:

I harken all ye, to heare this message, for one and all,

It is time to fully wake up! Your houses and denizaries are about to burn in the fecundities of out-of-control political power and averice. Those who lord over you do NOT care of nor about you! You are but a pawn in their grandeose “game” of posturing and power-plays. There is proof, fact, and evidence aplenty – that your country (and mine) now burn on the funeral pyres of apathy, laziness, ignorance, mendacity, and self-righteous false-indignity. Our wonderful “nation”, “Land of the Free, Home of the Brave” – is being summarily cremated and put out to the realm of the forgotten! Those things and deeds we choose to NOT do today, will be deeds and acts never known, and never ventured, towards the possibility of a brighter future, for ALL OF US, not just for the select few, who have all our (pillaged) resources at their disposal. The Dragon can not, and shall not help us all, if we are to refuse to help ourselves, and our various kin, from the problems and travails we helped ourselves into! The Dragons only help those, who show their worthiness of receiving their help. – The true sign of the respect of free will!

Our past and ancestry knew of the Power and the Wisdom of the Dragon. So where have WE gone wrong, in these modern times? ? ? The Dragon, as a liberator, simply shows us how, and guides us towards, LIBERATION FROM ANOTHER’S YOKE OF SLAVERY, IF – we choose do to so. If it is one major lesson that the Dragons have led me to: It is that FREEDOM STARTS FROM WITHIN!

Then, and ONLY THEN, can Freedom truly Ring,

In this Land of the Free, Home of the Brave!

National Holidays We Are In Danger of Losing: The Typical Remaking of American Culture and Traditions.


As political-correctness pressures and media propagandizing are pushing us to adopt new “norms”, what is there left to salvage of the honorable moments of the history of the United States of America?

Establishing “standards” of what it is to be “normal”.

When personal choice becomes subjectivized and rationalized away, in favor of the “new normal”, what is there left, for the individual being to celebrate as part of his citizenship (also a thing becoming of the past)? The last twenty or so years have seen some astonishing changes and transformation from what many of us held as part of our traditions and culture. Many of these changes, not so positive and “inclusive” of all. We have also seen a radical re-interpretation of many of our laws and codes. Many of these changes, resulting in more outside interference and involvement of “government”, and less room for dissent.

We are also seeing, at mind-numbing and blinding speed, the chorus calls to rewrite many important parts of our history, both collective and individual, all because “we do not like those parts”. So, what ARE we to learn of our past history, and FROM our past history? If we are to neglect and ignore those parts that are unfavorable to us, then WHAT are we to learn and HOW are we to learn to not repeat those very same mistakes and tragedies? “He who forgets history, is doomed to repeat it!” (adlibbed, of course). Are we going down a road that is altogether to familiar to the aware, and totally unknown to the oblivious?

In order to examine the current state of affairs in this fashion,

We should look at the political pressures for changing, or altogether abolishing, several of our venerated, national holidays and celebrations.

1 ) Fourth of July – as opposed to “Independence Day“:

– Independence Day is (soon to be “was”) a celebration of the United States of America’s liberation from tyrannical rule of the English Crown. The British Empire was a force to reckoned with in the old world, along with its titan commercial interests like the British East-India Trading Company. Most of the colonial exploits of the British Empire were for not only expanding imperial influence, but also for more opportunities to “trade” with other nations (as well as the resulting exploitation of those populations by the mercantilists).

The exploitation of the American Colonists, over time, became so unbearable due to increasing taxation to the benefit of the empire and its friendly businesses. This tilted form of economy made it so that most of the individualist-minded business folk were adversly affected by these increased expenses, while the more “crown-friendly” businesses benefited handsomely. It was events like these, and the furthered oppressions against the colonists (burning of “unlicensed” printing houses, intentional disarming of the general populace, etc.), as well as the unrestrained power and unchecked authority of the British military, that became the rallying cry for independence from the British Empire. Repeated attempts for treaties and agreements for parity of the colonists were ignored, and often – ruthlessly oppressed with more stringent measures against the colonists. After a long and brutal war that saw the American Colonists as victorious of Britain, our fledgling nation’s existence was assured of a fresh start, and a hard-earned self-determination.

What amazes me these days, is the quiet but growing call to celebrate “Interdependence Day”, instead. This comes from those who blindly (or even arrogantly) support the concept of a “global citizen”, and further the destruction of the idea and institution of the “nation-state”. Even the various United Nations’ charters call all of the signatories, “State-Parties”. Just as today, most of the businesses poster-child “July 4th”, or “4th of July” on there banners, instead of the proper reason WHY July 4th is the specific date celebrated: INDEPENDENCE DAY.

So,

The subterfuge goes on.

2 ) Father’s Day (complete with all of the necessary distractions from the true purposes of honoring the “Father”).

This year, 2015, and even locally where I live, it has become plain as day just how much the concept of a “Father” having any importance in society, has been under constant attack! Most of the leverage for dismissing the role and importance of “Dad” in family matters, started with the World War II years. This was then followed, to great effect, by the 60’s “Sexual Revolution” and the resulting additional push for women’s rights (as under the auspices of Patria Ireland and Gloria Steinem, and their “National Organization for Women”).

Under the forced social currents of change, many of the men-exclusive institutions have been done away with. The “social-justice” workers have tirelessly fought with the political system for various changes, and done so with much noise and vigor in support of the causes. Among some of the feats, the removal and subsequent outlawing of men’s-only social clubs, bars, and virtually any other vestige of men-only activities and gatherings. Yet, there are plenty (if not over-represented) of women-only functions, social clubs, “sales”, publications, entertainment venues, etc.

From those times onward, the role of “Father” has been steadily chipped away and side-lined. All one has to do is pay close attention to much of passes for “entertainment” and even most of the commercials often portray the man (and sometimes as the father) as an incompetent boob, or even a totally clueless fool, while portraying the women as the ultra-smart problem-solver. This has succeeded, for several generations of young Americans, in painting “dad” as a fool and incapable of doing anything right. This has also made parenting effectively far more difficult for BOTH parents (mom and dad).

Then, let’s get to the example of what happened locally (Boise, Idaho):

It used to be, every Father’s Day – Sunday, that we would have the presence of all sorts of classic cars and hot-rods displayed along a designated, closed-off street all day. This was in the spirit of Father’s Day, and was typically a “tradition” put on by the local classic car enthusiast clubs. This year, again – 2015, the classic cars show was done the previous Saturday evening (which was too dark by that hour, for me to clearly-photograph any of the cars with my camera-phone, like I wanted too) instead! What also transpired that very same Saturday, the Gay-Pride March and Festival, the World Citizen Festival, and a few other smaller but well-promoted “festivals” – AT THE SAME TIME!!! – The Father’s Day occasion had to compete with other interests, all because it’s schedule was moved up to Saturday, instead of the traditional Sunday!

Well, I guess THAT was supposed to be a “Happy Father’s Day“? ! ? ! ?

3 ) Thanksgiving Day (even though it was originally observed on a different calendar day, it still stood for “giving thanks for all the things we have”).

Thanksgiving Day has many different counterparts throughout much of the world. The giving and expression of gratitude has been a very important part of many cultures, past and present. The Paleo-Pagans and other ancient cultures had their many different ways of expressing gratitude, and to whom and/or what they gave the praise to. One of the important effects of being grateful for those things we have, and for the ability to supply ourselves and others’ needs, is that we have a tendency of recognizing that such things are often hard-won and hard-earned. We are less-likely to waste and squander what we are grateful for!

The current political pressures seek to try to remove this part of our culture (as much of our hyper-commercialization has given us the “throw-away-society” that we have today) and have even used the divisive rhetoric that it is a “separation-of-church-and-state” issue that they do so. The current invocation of Thanksgiving Day is derived from the Christian (and earlier, Catholic) litergy and doctrines. However, not only these religions express the act of gratefulness, as many other cultures which preceded them by thousands of years have also done. It has become far too common that any holiday that does not commercialize as well (like Christmas, Easter, Halloween, etc.), nor provide such outstanding profit potential, gets silently passed by or abdicated altogether. (This may also be part and parcel to the big push by “animal-rights” campaign groups, to “wean” Americans away from consuming meats of any animal type.)

So, enjoy your Thanksgiving Day, while you still have that fresh-baked turkey available to you!

4 ) Flag Day – Almost NO ONE even knows of the existence of this particular day!

This was the day to celebrate the adoption of our national flag, the Stars and Stripes, as begun with the first Flag of the Thirteen Colonies, as envisioned by the Nation’s Founders and sewn by Betsy Ross. This became the flag of our national identity, and symbolic of our nation’s struggle for independence.

= Some national holidays that are being systematically changed drastically from their original intents: =

5 ) Christmas/Christmas Day – This is being overshadowed by other expressions such as Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Ramadan, and other cultural holidays, exclusive of American culture.

Because “Christmas” is viewed as “exclusivist” and too “Christian” for a nation that honors separation of church and state by the political powers (usually from the more-fascististic movements), it is being quietly discarded in favor of the other cultural expressions of similar holidays. Heavy emphasis is placed on more-loudly promoting the other holidays, because the political system continues the message that “Americans have no culture“. This is a favorite ploy of theirs to further denigrate and minimize the positive contributions of the United States of America, and anything even remotely reminiscent of old European culture.

6 ) Easter/Easter Sunday – Seems to mean something only for hyper-consumerism and commercialization anymore.

* * *

Though I have lost track of a few others myself,

I think this short list is enough to convey a sense of “wow” in that these have been steady pressures, acted upon by many of the so-called civil-rights and social-justice warriors.

If there are any that I may missed, and you feel the need to include them, I am open to other comments on this subject.
