Zimbabwe has been hard hit by years of drought and financial collapse.

We're raising funds to complete a well which will supply water for a small rural town's people, farm animals and crops.

If you've set up a gofundme or indigogo page or two, please contact me asap.

Thanks, Jude

I think it is good to see many facets of an issue so that one can make a truly informed decision. This article by a physician is interesting in this regard:
What the Covid Vaccine Hype Fails to Mention
https://mises.org/wire/what-covid-va...-fails-mention

In addition to several other key points, he says:
Quote My colleagues include resident physicians and faculty physicians who work with covid patients on a daily basis. I have asked a number of my colleagues whether they will be first in line for the new vaccine. I have yet to hear any of my colleagues respond affirmatively. The reasons for hesitancy are that the uncertainties about safety exceed what they perceive to be a small benefit. In other words, my colleagues would prefer to take their chances with covid rather than beta test the vaccine. Many of my colleagues want to see the safety data after a year of use before getting vaccinated; these colleagues are concerned about possible autoimmune side effects that may not appear for months after vaccination.

About half the countries in this world have had and still have vaccination requirements for entry from certain areas. Mostly for yellow fever. Most schools in most states require certain vaccinations. These laws have been in place for at least 62 years. I expect there will be many companies that deal directly with elderly patients that will require covid vaccination. There is nothing new here. This is not some new dystopian nightmare but business as usual.

Gratitude expressed by:

Most of the vaccine will go UPS. The military will fly some here and there for show so Trump can puff his contribution. If you want to be vaccinated and are in the risk group approved you will be able to get it at many of same places you can get a flu shot. If you belong to Kaiser you will likely get it there, Same with other HMOs.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...e-distribution
500 million syringes with two doses required = 250 million people or about 75% of the US population. When you make a plan you also must figure in many percent for imperfect distribution of syringes and a certain amount of loss due to damage etc. So maybe enough for 65% vaccination of the public

As far as is mRNA dangerous? You bet it is. Its exactly what this corona virus and other viruses use to turn certain of your cells into virus factories churning out more corona virus that go out and do the same. We don't know all the long term effects of covid, but we do know there appears to be some very bad ones in a percentage of those infected. On the other hand the mRNA vaccines turn some of your muscle cells into factories that churn out the spikes of this corona virus. Your body then mounts multiple defenses against those spikes.

One difference being those spikes are unable to replicate so unlike the actual virus they are limited by the volume in the shot you get. Every time you get a viral infection that virus is injecting certain of your cells with it's mNRA to manipulate that cell into a virus replication factory.

My point is the virus and the vaccine use almost identical biological mechanisms. Most likely we are all going to get one or the other. It's my belief the vaccine is far less likely to harm and every complication that could happen with the vaccine is more than likely possible with the virus and many more.

WaccoBB WaccoBB Coronavirus Conspiracy Theories
Thank you again for trying to keep us aware of the cognitive dissonance involved in COVID-19 fears and irrational laws. I'm reposting this on other sites so more eyes can see, beyond any with blinders on. For many it will be too late, as history repeats itself led by unconscious leaders bent on maintaining power by seducing us with a prize of "Happytalism".

The United Nations New World Order Project is trying to rebrand the idea of a one-world government as “Happytalism”


The United Nations New World Order Project

is attempting to rebrand the idea of a one-world technocratic totalitarian government as “HAPPYTALISM”, which sounds like something straight out of Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World. So let’s all pop some soma and get into it...
According to this article

published last July:
The United Nations New Economic Paradigm (NEP) Project is calling on all people, and all nations to adopt 'HAPPYTALISM' over capitalism/socialism, to set humanity free once and for all, achieve the UN's 17 global goals by 2030, and ultimately, the UN's 2012 call for a new economic paradigm which achieves the global happiness and well-being of all life on earth by 2050.

The article goes on state that “HAPPYTALISM” draws its inspiration from the U.S. Declaration of Independence, which is irony at its finest. The Declaration of Independence sought to overturn the long abuses and powers of tyrants.
“HAPPYTALISM”, on the other hand, is a term being pushed by an organization whose primary objective is the implementation of a one-world government. By seeking to repurpose the 4th of July as a day the world’s nations adopt and implement “HAPPYTALISM”, the United Nations New Economic Paradigm is attempting to subvert what the U.S. Independence Day stands for:

Where necessary and appropriate that on this July 4 US Independence Day, the United Nations New Economic Paradigm is calling on all people, and all nations, to adopt and implement 'HAPPYTALISM' as a new economic genus and human development paradigm, to replace obsolete, old world and inadequate systems such as capitalism, socialism, communism, mercantilism, feudalism, among others.

The term alone, “HAPPYTALISM”, seems to command that you MUST be happy with it, regardless of what HAPPYTALISM-in-action looks like. George Carlin once wisely said: “Government wants to control information and control language because that's the way you control thought, and basically that's the game they're in.” This think tank devised oxymoron is thought-controlling propaganda at its best, targeting the critical-thinking deficient masses with the empty promise of how wonderful the New World Order is going to be for all of humanity.

On this day for giving Thanks.. and in gratitude for this community, I wanted to respond to the idea of 'victim' in this thread. Despite horrific things happening to us - whether individually or collectively, 'victim' does not have to be our permanent 'identity'... Nor is it a simple walk in the park to grow into a wider deeper sense of Self.

Ego was meant to be a helper/navigator for our time/space journey, yet has become captain in the consciousness of many. It can and does obstruct our knowing that we are all joined and what affects one truly affects all. There are many fine teachers we are lucky to have among us to show us how healing can be done. They are from many traditions (religious, spiritual, secular) and no traditions and include: Eckhart Tolle, Pema Chodron, Rupert Spira, Byron Katie, Nelson Mandela, Dalai Lama, Gandhi, Erich Fromm, Viktor Frankl, Reinhold Niebuhr, and so many others... who know deeply of suffering (individual and/or collective) and allowed it to become a vehicle for their awakening.

Perhaps Kahlil Gibran said it best -- in terms of the pain we each experience via others' unconsciousness:

Quote And a woman spoke, saying, Tell us of Pain.
And he said:
Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.
Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain.
And could you keep your heart in wonder at the daily miracles of your life, your pain would not seem less wondrous than your joy;
And you would accept the seasons of your heart, even as you have always accepted the seasons that pass over your fields.
And you would watch with serenity through the winters of your grief.

Much of your pain is self-chosen.
It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self.
Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility:
For his hand, though heavy and hard, is guided by the tender hand of the Unseen,
And the cup he brings, though it burn your lips, has been fashioned of the clay which the Potter has moistened with His own sacred tears.

From The Prophet (Knopf, 1923).

Quote Pamela L wrote:
wow....Mayacaman...I had to wonder what point you were endeavoring to make using Barry's whole name five times in your missive. For me, that gave your writing a zealous tone that made it hard for me to get a sense you were rational. What you wrote came across to me as reactionary and "holier than thou." I did not follow up on your links, but may return to a couple. One thing I do feel is that something is terribly wrong in this world, corruption in high places etc.. and kindness is important.......
Pamela, I took heed to your admonition and cut two of the "Barry Chertov's" from my screed. But do you understand the difference between "anger" & "irrationality"? My anger towards the moderator of this website is quite legitimate. **It is the fruit of a long chain of abuse.

In point of fact, I am not able to post very much in this, "his" forum without it being either mocked, moved to the "conspiracy theory" ghetto of the Ninth Ward =OR= receiving the missive from Barry that it is being marginalized & "Excluded from the Digest." I get the exact same missive (example, quoted verbatim, above) whether I post Prose =OR= Poetry.

In point of fact, I have been "niggerized" by Barry Chertov. No, I am not a racist. To "niggerize" is a legitimate word [describing bad behavior] in the American dialect of the English language. Also, I received permission from my old friend Lumukanda (a member of the brain trust of the original, Oakland Chapter of the Black Panther Party) to speak of myself as an "old Field Negro". Truth be told, we are All just "old field Negros" to the Masters who run the Global Plantation.

I confess, I am a bit raw these days on account of being burned out of my house and home on the night of September 27, 2020. Not only did I lose everything that I had with the exception of twelve banjos and my cat; I nearly was burned to death. If you prefer to think of me as "irrational" rather than "recovering" from a serious trauma, that is up to you.

Besides that, I would suggest that you open the links and read what is on the other side of them. They are my footnotes. I always provide footnotes.



I published five thousand copies of that anti-war missive during the six weeks of the First Gulf War, at the cost of roughly forty dollars a thousand. It was samisdat-ed all around the World. It was the first time that many had heard of the Bank for International Settlements - the first World Bank, which deals in Gold Reserve balances between nations, was founded in 1930, and which functioned all during World War II with a Nazi Banker on the Board of Directors. The B.I.S. is located in Basel Switzerland. This is not a "conspiracy theory." It is a fact.

A graduate student in Political Science at Cal, Berkeley -whose name I can not produce because all of my archives were turned into ashes on the night of September 27, 2020- obtained a copy of that Anti-War tract from a certain John Van, who in the 1990's used to table on Telegraph Avenue, and sell Anti-War literature & radical regalia.

This grad student in Political Science, in turn, made many copies of that missive of mine, and personally gave one to every professor at the University of California at Berkeley. Fact. I am not making this up. Later, after he had heard the feedback from all of those professors, he notified me because he wanted to meet the one who had produced that missive. When we met, he recorded the interview.

He informed me that all of the professors at Cal were amazed that the whole schema of the world financial apparatus could be encapsulated on the two sides of a single sheet of *8 1/2"*x *11" *foolscap. They were further amazed that the one who had been able to produce that summary was not a lettered academic, but a mere carpenter / woodworker and musical instrument maker. Again, I am not making this up. It is a true story. It happened.



Sincerely,

Mark Walter Evans

Mayacaman, I am so sorry about your daunting losses and that you barely escaped with your life. I, for one, am glad you are still on the planet... You are raw and tender.... and who wouldn't be after such an uprooting.

I would say a few things: Your worth is not dependent on anyone - or everyone's - acknowledging it. I wish you didn't take Barry's editing as a personal attack (Four Agreements) and, then, attack him back. Though after your explaining about his interviewing you etc - I can see better how it might feel like editing is personal. There is much of the prophet in you... more seeing, less harangue is good... whether or not we get your message, some do. I do, though I ignore repeated messages. AND.....

Quote A Blessing For the New Year

Beannacht
For Josie

On the day when
The weight deadens
On your shoulders
And you stumble,
May the clay dance
To balance you.

And when your eyes
Freeze behind
The grey window
And the ghost of loss
Gets into you,
May a flock of colours,
Indigo, red, green
And azure blue,
Come to awaken in you
A meadow of delight.

When the canvas frays
In the currach of thought
And a stain of ocean
Blackens beneath you,
May there come across the waters
A path of yellow moonlight
To bring you safely home.

May the nourishment of the earth be yours,
May the clarity of light be yours,
May the fluency of the ocean be yours,
May the protection of the ancestors be yours.

And so may a slow
Wind work these words
Of love around you,
An invisible cloak
To mind your life.

~ from To Bless the Space Between Us, A Book of Blessings
by John O'Donohue

Re The Prophet quote:
Exceedingly worthy quote, M/M. Thanks for posting it.
I find it helpful to accompany it with this one from Stephen Levine:
"The greatest obstacle to our spiritual growth is our unwillingness to let go of our suffering."
Amen to that.

The Freedom to be Stupid
From: Star Man     
Posted: November 27, 2020, 2:17 am
The Supreme Court has enshrined the Right to be Stupid among the fundamental rights of American citizenship. The Court agreed that the rights of citizens to freely assemble in religious practice outweighed the science based rules that would have limited the rights of citizens to gather in large groups for religious ceremonies in order to protect their health. Citizens will now be able to test for themselves whether belief in God's love can protect them from infection.

America is at a major choice point. In a conflict between medical science and religious orthodoxy, the SCOTUS has sided with religion. Science says stay home and wear a mask. The Rabbis and priests say come to church, gather in large groups, ignore science, and your faith will protect you. Citizens can choose to stay home and practice their faith there. They may find just as much solace in reading scripture in the family as they would in church.

The Corona Virus is neither Catholic or Jew, Jehova's Witness or Seventh Day Adventist. We appear poised at the dawn of a new form of herd immunity. Some of the people who attend large religious services will get Covid and will carry it out into the community where they will spread it. Many will die who would not otherwise die. The people who stay home, who observe all safety protocols, who wear masks and avoid large gatherings will for the most part survive. As the others die out, the virus will die with them and in a few years it will be safe to return to an open society because the virus and all its carriers will be dead and along with them the religion that told them the lie that faith would protect them. The only faith that will protect us from infection is faith in medical science. Star Man

To a Passer-By on Thanksgiving Day


Gentle Reader,
it is good that you have paused
along your way, accepting
the silent invitation of these lines


For it was you I had in mind
when I sat to write these words,
you, holding a paper cup
of lukewarm dark roast coffee
and a satchel filled with groceries,
or you, clutching the dog’s leash
in one hand, with the other
pushing a stroller around the corner,
and even you, whom I had not
imagined in such precise terms


For you I drew my pen across the empty page
as earlier I drew my garden rake
again and again through withered grass
and over the buried front walk,
metal tines clawing wet concrete
gathering sodden maple leaves,
potent gift of high summer sun
turning then returning now to earth


For you I cleared a solitary path
prepared the way for your lonely passage
so that a mere moment of your journey
through the detritus of this world
might be blessed by an open space
awaiting your arrival,
conspicuous in its care,
this page inscribed in answer
to the ground now scraped bare.


- Seth H. Truby
