While We Still Have Time

In spite of the grimness of the times in which we live, there is still hope. If you feel, like I do, that the usual discourse about matters of critical concern tends to be superficial, misguided, and false, then you might find some solace and inspiration here. I will try to offer insight and a holistic perspective on events and issues, and hopefully serve as a catalyst for raising the level of dialogue on this planet.

I was born in 1945, shortly before atom bombs were dropped on Japan. I served in the U.S. Army from 1968 to 1971. I earned master's degrees in Economics and Educational Psychology, and certificates in Web Page Design and as a Teacher of English as a Second Language. I followed an Indian guru for eight years, which immersed me in meditative practices and an attitude of reaching a higher level of being. A blog post listing the meditative practices I have pursued can be seen here.

Stopping the Bush crime family

Send him to the showers!A note about comments: Someone placed a virus on a comment yesterday, so I deleted it and disabled the comments feature on the blog. Hardly anyone commented anyway, so it won't be missed. I have not had to deal with viruses before, and today I did some intensive study on the subject. Apple sure looks like a good idea.

I hadn't planned on writing anything today, but since I'm here, there are things to realize (apologies to the Chambers Brothers). The buzz on the Web today seems to be about how to stop the Bush crime family from bombing Iran. The BCF plan is likely to be to drop "Bunker buster" nuclear weapons, or as Bush would say, "nucular."

At the risk of being tiresome and redundant, I feel the need to reiterate that as an entire species, if Homo Sapiens is not capable of preventing the publicly known, heinously criminal, premeditated mass murder by a small criminal gang, then Homo Sapiens does not deserve to be at the top of the food chain, and will not be for very long. Especially when the premeditated mass murder involves radioactive contamination of not just the targeted country, but its neighbors, and the rest of the planet as well. I spent the day today surrounded by idiots, so just based on what some economists call "casual empiricism," the future of the species does not look promising. The idiot factor in the United States of America runs very high, well over 50%. Probably somewhere around 80%. Don't let Bush's declining poll numbers fool you. They can change overnight, and probably will if he succeeds in bombing Iran. He had a 90% approval level when the "Shock and awe" bombing was slaughtering people in Iraq.

But all is not lost. I don't think I've said it on this blog before, but it is a matter of faith with me that this planet, and the life that exists on it, were not created in order to be destroyed by men, degenerate, deluded, or otherwise. So I trust in Divine intervention.

That is not to say that we should do nothing. Faith is good to have, but it is not an excuse for laziness or presumption. If nothing else, we can minimize the harm done as the Bush crime family pushes towards nuclear war.

So first of all, we should recognize that the Bush crime family, though it has many members who play significant roles in making it function, at its core has only five people who are vital for its "success." They are Bush himself - the front man, Dick Cheney - the alpha male, Donald Rumsfeld - the field coordinator, Condoleeza Rice - the international liaison and bureaucratic solidifier, and Karl Rove - the strategist and propagandist.

If we want to stop World War III, these are the people who must be stopped. It isn't as hard as it seems. But it does take a lot of work. One thing to bear in mind is that a lot of the reason the BCF wants to attack Iran is that they need to stay one step ahead of the law, lest they find themselves under indictment and headed for jail. Support in whatever form we can muster should be given to the investigation into the Valerie Plame leak by U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald. Support for the various investigations of Jack Abramoff and Tom DeLay are also necessary. More investigations of the September 11, 2001 attacks and the Iraq war should be conducted. And let's not forget the mysterious plantings of Anthrax around the nation's capitol, as well as other places. Further investigations, like the negligence related to Hurricane Katrina, also should be supported. A Congressman or ten can be recalled for their criminality.

But for the average citizen an item in yesterday's news offers the best inspiration for what to do. Dick Cheney decided to show up for the opening game of the Washington Nationals baseball team, and threw the ceremonial first pitch. He was vigorously booed by most of the people in attendance. Eyewitness accounts were called in on today's Stephanie Miller Show, and it sounded like great fun. This is "People's Democracy," not held hostage by election fraud, media propaganda, or party elites. This is the treatment to give to the Quintumvirate wherever they go. Boo them. Sue them. Eschew them. Ask them pointed questions about their criminal behavior and plans. Tell them to get out of town and never come back. Tell your elected representatives to challenge them. Call on the generals and admirals to publicly condemn them, and to refuse to cooperate. Call on the diplomats to publicly condemn them. Call on foreign leaders, followers, and everyone else to publicly condemn them. Call on all pilots to disobey the illegal commands for mass murder. Call on all support personnel to refuse to go along with crimes against humanity. Demand impeachment, war crimes trials, and imprisonment for everyone involved in crimes against humanity. Make up your own actions. We're all humans. We have intelligence, even if it lies dormant in most of us.

Look at Cheney's face in the picture. He doesn't look so Darth Vader-like, does he? He looks like an angry, weak, humiliated old man. He may be bent on revenge, but he's no stronger than we let him be. It's the "Wizard of Oz" syndrome, and it's the same for all the Bush crime family, and all their supporters and enablers. They are all weak people, talented only in their ability to create the illusion of power. Think about it. George W. Bush, a man who can't even speak properly, who never accomplished anything in his entire life, and he has the whole world at bay over his intention to bomb a country with "nucular" weapons. What a farce! The gods are truly laughing themselves silly over this one. If you have ever wondered what the laughing Buddha statues are all about, could there be a better example?

A new age of enlightenment should be starting any day now.
