 In Seattle, wasting food will now earn you a scarlet letter — well, a scarlet tag, to be more accurate. The bright red tag, posted on a garbage bin, tells everyone who sees it that you’ve violated a new city law that makes it illegal to put food into trash cans. “I’m sure neighbors are going to see these on their other neighbors’ cans,” says Rodney Watkins, a lead driver for Recology CleanScapes, a waste contractor for the city. He’s on the front lines of enforcing these rules.

The council vote to pass the new composting measure was a unanimous 9-to-0. No public hearing was required.
 They act like terrorists, they regularly kill civilians like terrorists, but the White House does not consider the Afghan Taliban to be a terrorist group.

They do carry out tactics that are akin to terrorism. They do pursue terror attacks in an effort to try to advance their agenda,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest explained today, but “they have a different classification.”

Semantics aside, the Taliban is suspected in multiple attacks over just the last 48 hours that have killed more than 30 people, including a suicide bombing attack on a funeral in Afghanistan today that killed 16 and wounded 39.
Even so, the White House does not call the Afghan Taliban a terrorist organization, Earnest explained, because they are “different than an organization like al Qaeda that has a much broader global aspiration to carry out acts of violence and acts of terror against Americans and American interests all around the globe.”
Office puts chips under staff’s skin

Want to gain entry to your office, get on a bus, or perhaps buy a sandwich? We’re all getting used to swiping a card to do all these things. But at Epicenter, a new hi-tech office block in Sweden, they are trying a different approach – a chip under the skin.

Felicio de Costa, whose company is one of the tenants, arrives at the front door and holds his hand against it to gain entry. Inside he does the same thing to get into the office space he rents, and he can also wave his hand to operate the photocopier.

That’s all because he has a tiny RFID (radio-frequency identification) chip, about the size of a grain of rice, implanted in his hand. Soon, others among the 700 people expected to occupy the complex will also be offered the chance to be chipped. Along with access to doors and photocopiers, they’re promised further services in the longer run, including the ability to pay in the cafe with a touch of a hand.

 A fourth grader in Kermit, Texas was suspended for making “terroristic threats” after allegedly telling a classmate that he had a “magic ring” that could make the boy disappear, the Odessa American reports. According to Kermit Elementary School officials, 9-year-old Aiden Steward told a classmate that he possessed a magic ring forged in Mount Doom — a fictional location from J.R.R. Tolkien’s Hobbit and Lord of the Rings series.

 Kermit Elementary Principal Roxanne Greer told the Odessa American that she could not comment on the suspension, because “all student stuff is confidential,” but Steward said that she told him that any and all threats to a child’s safety — including magical ones — would be taken seriously by the school.

“I assure you my son lacks the magical powers necessary to threaten his friend’s existence,” he added. “If he did, I’m sure he’d bring him right back. “

Tied to my news report the other day…
 student stuff? The administrator can’t find a proper word for the situation.
What about if  they start locking up Christians who threaten children’s eternal souls to hell, and promise that magical Jesus is coming back to destroy the planet!

 “I felt uncomfortable, and I didn’t want to do it,” 11-year-old Eliza Medina. “I felt like they violated my privacy.” She was one of about two dozen elementary students who were rounded up in the small town 90 miles southwest of Fort Worth. Eliza’s mother, Maria Medina, said boys were taken to one room, girls to another, and they were ordered “to pull down their pants to check them to see if they could find anything.”

Show Notes:
Zero Tolerance Policies
Almost all school districts in America have zero tolerance policies, including ones regarding weapons, drugs, bullying, fighting and so on.
While these may look good on paper, in practice, they suck in more ways than can be counted.
For those that don’t know, zero tolerance policies ake it so that if a student is guilty of violating whatever policy is in place, they are immediately suspended or expelled from school, with little hope of fighting the issue.
This is due to the fact that the Supreme Court has consistently avoided taking any cases involving zero tolerance policies, leaving it up to the states to have the final say on what happens in their districts.
The Foolishness of it all
Let’s be frank.  There ARE pros and cons to this issue…
On one hand, ZTP’s DO make it plain that safety is of the utmost importance for our kids while they are in school.
On the other hand, there is a lot of nonsense flowing around the issue.
Let’s take some cases in point here…
A 5 year old was forced to sign a contract (without her mother present, mind you, and before 18 years of age, the legal age that one must be in order to be held to a contract…) that she would not kill anyone else or herself…
… for drawing a picture “resembling a gun” and pointing her crayon at someone and saying “pew pew pew.”
A crayon.
What the freak, people?
Another case in point…
A 13 year old student is suspended for threatening a teacher with a weapon.  The weapon? A rubber band.  The way they threatended them? By tossing it on the desk when they were asked to remove it from their wrist.
How about another one?
 “Two boys, ages 9 and 10, were charged with felonies and taken away from school in handcuffs, accused of making violent drawings of stick figures.
“The boys were arrested Monday on charges of making a written threat to kill or harm another person, a second-degree felony. The special education students used pencil and red crayon to draw primitive stick figure scenes on scrap paper that showed a 10-year-old classmate being stabbed and hung, police said.”
How about…
Terrorist threat” criminal charges were filed against two 8-year-olds in Irvington, N.J., for “playing cops and robbers with a paper gun.”
There are, literally, hundreds of cases and stories about this type of thing happening.
It’s not new
The sad fact is, it’s not new.  This stuff has been going on for decades, but it’s just getting worse.
When are people in America going to actually wake up and say, “Look, this stuff has GOT to be stopped”?
It makes our schools look stupid, it makes our politicians look even stupider than they already are (just proving a point, I guess), and it makes US look stupid as a nation.
As individuals, we have to stand up for those that can’t stand up for themselves.  Remember how I always talk about the phrase, “for the children?” Well, this is one case where I would say it’s safe to use it for good, for once.


For as long as humanity has existed, we have searched to find the answers to what we are… where we have come from… what is the nature of reality?

We are a species that has suffered from amnesia for almost the entire time it has exsited.

so much evidence has shown that we are not just derived from some primal primate species, but that we have some higher potential, some higher purpose.

And that we, as a species, have been here far longer than modern science tries to claim.

one of the questions that has plagued us is, what is the nature of ourselves? Are we good, but do bad things? Or are we evil beings, fallen from grace, and trying to push our way back to the gates of heaven, so to speak?

Therein lies the question of our duality, and whether we are simply a species that has clawed its way up to the top of the food chain, or are here to be droplets of the universe, consciously existing to experience all the things that the nature of reality has to offer.

Are we dual-minded?

There IS a lot of evidence to show that, yes, we are, indeed.  We have a brain, and that brain has certain characteristics that are designed for our survival.  Tings like the fight or flight instinct, for instance, lends credence to the idea that we were once something lesser, and this is a vestigial remnant of that time in our dark prehistory.

Yet, we are also conscious beings.  We think, we feel and we act according to those thoughts and feelings.  Science has not come up with an explanation for the conscious mind, nor how it developed and functions.

So that brings about a great number of questions, does it not?

Are we more than simply the sum of our parts, as spiritual traditions would claim? Or are we simply the body going through the motions of being alive, from one generation to the next?

Most people try to say that, when it comes to the duality of our natures, it is simply a matter of good versus evil.  That there are negative things, and all negative things are evil and only fulfill evil purposes, while positive experiences and events are inherently good.

That is, simply, not the case.

Events, themselves are, much like information, neither positive or negative.  It just “is.”

How we react to these things, however, IS positive or negative.  Whether as individuals or as a species, we can and do react positively and negatively to events.

And yet,  the events themselves, whether it is a car driving down a road, or a building falling after a terrorist attack, are neither aspect.

How we view them or react to them is.

You see, it’s all a matter of perspective.  Positive things can come from negative things, it is just a matter of how you look, at whether you perceive, those aspects of it.

You see, we are all walking down the middle of a road…

(road story)

So, you see, we are always in the middle, perched between these two aspects of reality.  We can change our view at any time, if we so desire.

Now, one small problem that occurs is this…

Science has found that, as a default, we tend to look towards the negative.  This is because it is a survival instinct, built into the brain.

You can refer to my previous episode, Forgiveness and the Insane Mind, for an in depth analysis of how the mind works against us in it’s fight to survive, but, in short…

The mind is always focused on one thing, and one thing only.  Survival.  It will strive to keep you in the mode you are currently in, no matter  how much stress you have, worry you have, what dangers you are in, or what problems are occurring, because it is focused only on keeping you alive.  That is its purpose.

So, because of that, we have a difficult time changing the way we look at things.  We are alive, and if we viewed things differently, we’d die.  At least, according to our mind.

Everything that has occurred with you up until this very moment has brought you to be alive, and your mind will not want you to change things, because you will die.

So you see, to me, duality is not some aspect of good vs evil within us, as many spiritual traditions teach.  Instead, it is a fight against ourselves, a stand between our conscious and our unconscious.

We have always got the choice between looking at the negative or looking at the positive.  We have always got the choice of deciding that we will change the way we live and function, because we have free will, and the ability to decide for ourselves our own fate.

Not to be constrained by what the mind is doing, in it’s fight to keep us alive, but, rather, to go forward with the thought that we can choose to choose.

We don’t have to live by instinct, alone.  That is for brutes.

We ARE a part of the universe.  We are made of the very essence of it, are we not?

We carry with us the atoms of creation, and we can choose to think of ourselves in that way, as opposed to being controlled by what we don’t even understand.

You see, there are those out there that would use you.  They would abuse you.  They would take advantage of your un-ness and your lack of thought.

These people, these brutes, these dark masters of this world, want you to not know that you are something else.  They do not want you to understand that you are outside of yourself.

They do not want you to realize that the universe and all things within it are one giant computer, and that you are playing a game on one of the many multitudes of computers connected to it.

That is the true nature of reality.  All things are interconnected together in the universe by a wonderfully complex computer code.  That you, as the being that you are, are a computer operating system, with many apps and games installed, each of which contributes to you as a whole.

Just like any computer game, you can change what you are doing at any time.  You can turn the game off and load up a different one.  You can tweak your settings so that you have the best game you can possibly have.

But, no, the dark masters, these hackers that have invaded our systems, don’t want you to realize that.

Instead, they have installed virus after virus on you, overloading your system and stealing your data, your very life force, your power supply, to augment their own and to create the game that they want to play.

They understand te nature of the game.  They understand the way the reality simulator works.  They understand, and they use it against you.

Remember I said that there are things that science has found within us, those pre-programmed trigger effects that can be done at any given moment, depending on the circumstance?

The dark masters, the powers that be, whatever name you want to call them, they know this too.  And they use it against you at all turns.

Look at the media.  Look how they play you, every time you turn on the TV, listen to the radio or look at a magazine.

It’s always pushing an agenda.  There is no real news.  There is only the agenda, whatever buzzword terms they are using that week.

Look at right now.  It’s all ebola ebola ebola.  Crisis crisis crisis.

Yet, the reality of the situation is far less dramatic than they would have you believe.

FEAR!  Why are you not afraid?  FEAR IT ALL!

You are not afraid!Q  There must be something wrong with you!  You are a conspiracy theorist!

Here! Have some drugs!  You are laughing too much! Have this drug, that will make you stop laughing!

Oh, there’s side effects?  Here, have some more drugs to counter those side effects.  Warning, the side effect curing medicine might kill you or you might bleed a little from your butt.  But that’s okay, isn’t it?  Now you’re normal.  Now you’re conforming.  Good little minion.  You will do well in our new world we are creating for you.

Oh, you don’t like that thought?>  Here, have some more.

Oh this one is waking up a little!  Here!  Watch Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda video! It’s totally original except for all of the parts that were rehashed from previous things.  Watch the video!  She’s shaking her butt, isn’t that enticing?> Ooh!  Now you can join the other 250 million people that have watched it in the 2 weeks since it’s been released.

Do you see/ Do you see?

They love to distract, to pull you away from the deeper thoughts, from the things that they know would end them in a heartbeat.

They don’t want us to know these things.  They have been doing it to us since the beginning.

They were once the priest classes, doling out to the great unwashed masses what they claimed God wanted them to know.  They spoke words that God will destroy them if they did not do exactly as the priests said.

“Bring us our dinner!” they said, as they demanded that the sacrifices be made.

Oh, God said that the first portion would go to him.  That went into the fire, sacrificed to appease the Gods that brought us sins.

The rest went to the priests.  They, the ones sitting in sanctimonious halos and hypocritical words, they, who would fatten themselves off of the work of the laborers.

Oh, but they were there to SAVE them.  They were there to make sure that all of our souls went on to the heavenly estates, or to Valhalla, or to the Elysian Fields.

They still do that today, living off of the tithes of the congregations, making sure to fill you up with the thought that you are sinful and that you will surely perish…

They just have to have that 10%.

But it is not jut the pastors and priests.  Those are old world leftovers, hangouts for the people that need to have their religious beliefs.  Not that I am knocking those, mind.  I just know how the priests operate.  What thy do with religion is not what you do.

No, the new “priests” are the purveyors of the “now.”  The “If you don’t have this RIGHT NOW you’ll be doomed!” mind set that is surrounding us was created by these men in black, these dark masters, these puppet masters that control the strings.

They, the ones with the real knowledge of how reality works, those that know and understand the truths of our origins, those are the ones controlling the masses throught he media, through the politics, through everything that causes us to be divided, losing the sense of what is really real.

That reality is that we are all connected, all together, in this thought experiment that the universe is running.

We are intimately connected together, forever traveling through the universe at light speed.  We are all breathing the same air, the same energies pass through us, the same emotions that i feel are the same emotions you feel.  We are all one.

Stop being divided by them.  Stop letting the priests of Chaos and Blight rule you.  Stop believing the lies.

You don’t need someone to tell you that you are the same as someone else, you don’t need to have someone tell you that what you say or do to someone else, impacts you as well.

You know these things, because that is a universal truth.

That is the true reality.  That is what it means to be here.

We are all just playing this elaborate game, set up to explore what it means to be human, to think and to feel, to love and to lose.  We are all here to learn and experience and grow.

Those dark ones? Those Priests of Chaos and Blight?

They are trying to cheat.  Will you let them keep cheating at the game?

Don’t divide yourself, don’t let them win.  Don’t let them make you think taht you are any better or worse than anyone else.  All of us are equal.  All of us live, breathe and die, and all of us think and feel in the same ways.

Remember, information is neither positive or negative.  It just is.  What you do with it is what changes who you are and how you will be for the rest of your days here.

Don’t let those days be planned out by someone other than yourself.  Wake up to the things going on around you!

Stand up against the things going on around you!

Speak the truth, and know that no matter what, you did what, in the end, is the right thing to do.

To do otherwise, to hide the truth and to make yourself better than anyone else makes you into, “oohh I have s secret!  I can’t tell you, because you’re not ready for it!”  Oh but you’ll reveal it for the low price of 39.95, right?

You’ll lead people to the promised land for the cheap price of 3 easy payments of 1/3 of their soul each.

We already have enough priests.  We need more God.

A drop of water in a waterfall exists only for a moment, during its moment of falling from one moment to the next, and then it disappears.
It’s existence was not what it was while it was with the rest, nor what it will be at the end of its singular moment in time.
It’s that way with life.
You only exist in this MOMENT.  There is no past.  That person no longer exists.  There is no future.  That person does not exist.  It is only you, right here, right now, that exists.  What are you going to do with that moment>?
Are you sitting and waiting for the next moment to come? Are you looking at the future and wasting the one moment you have?
Leave the future to itself.  You can appreciate the moment then.  But what you have, right now, in this singular moment, is all that you are, all that you have been destined to be, and all that matters.
What are you doing with this moment in time?
Don’t worry about your flaws;.  Diamonds are the most beautiful when they are flawed.  It’s what reflects the light, glinting and shining back at you as you stare at it.
Stop looking at yourself as a ump of coal. You are not that.  You are a diamond, and you are SHINING BRIGHT!
