I Refuse to be a “Sheeple” or a “Mindless Zombie”

2 Comments

 

Folks, I’ve gone ahead & added more to my comments from yesterday, with a bit of editing thrown in as well but the message remains the same.  I can’t stress enough how lately, I just don’t recognize my own country anymore. It’s like so many of us have become a bunch of Zombies, no longer thinking for themselves. It’s appears so many have been “trained” to listen to the commands of the media or their favorite millionaire pop star when making some of life’s biggest choices on how to deal with very important issues during such troubling times.

In this year 2012, election year, I still can’t believe so many American citizens are selling out by choosing a presidential candidate, because they are told their candidate can’t win.  ‎WAKE UP PEOPLE!  If these candidates they have chosen for you are not what you stand for, then don’t vote for them. Please do your homework & if they don’t measure up to your standards, then ignore who the media tells you is “electable!”

Instead I beg you to think for yourselves & avoid being brainwashed “sheeple”, whether it be in politics or any day in your life that you discover a cause based on a personal belief.  You should always choose to put up a good fight. Don’t give in to the pressure of the majority. Like our ancestors, that’s an admirable quality that shaped us into great Americans & made this country an amazing one & I am deeply appreciative & proud to be a part of continuing this patriotic tradition.  

When you stick to your principles and live, act out, vote, survive the criticism & live to tell the story with pride; it’s so much easier to sleep at night & live with yourself. Taking the right action based on the facts & your own opinion & beliefs, makes you a much better person,  neighbor, husband/wife or family member & it gives us “free citizens” (not subjects which is how we’ve been treated here lately in America), a much better country & world to live in.

Again, don’t settle for something less that what you believe in. Every day above ground is another chance to get it right. You’re not dead yet. Go out & start today! Your candidate “can win” if enough of us help them do it! 

Don’t settle for something less than you believe in

“May the Best Team Win” (No more participation trophies)

Leave a comment

I’m a football fan. I appreciate good teams & hard work. I have been a Detroit & Miami fan my whole life pretty much. Now I just enjoy the games & the talent. I think the teams that made the finals all had a chance & sometimes we don’t like all the calls made by the refs, but only one gets the superbowl trophy & rings. That’s the way it’s supposed to be. It gives each team motivation in the future to strive to be better. Going for the trophy or the gold metals in the olympics, striving to reach the stars, the top of the summit & improve & be the best that we can be is what it’s all about.

I was fortunate enough to be taught & learned how to acheive goals & give it my all at a young age. This helps us in life & losing sometimes helps us win later on. In today’s society, there are too many trophies. You’ve heard about it so much lately. Everyone gets a “participation trophy”. I think this is one of the reasons so many of us have gotten so lazy. We’ve lost sight of what motivates us to improve & succeed. It’s gotten too easy & now everyone gets rewarded, even when they didn’t go that extra mile.

So here’s to the winners. They worked hard to get where they are & they are another example of what hard work does in the long run.

Regarding a fever: The natural way for thousands of years:

Leave a comment

 

Regarding antibiotics or drugs for a fever: The suggestion that the intelligent human body would raise its own temperature until it caused brain damage is one of the most patently absurd contentions I have ever heard. Metabolism consists of the absorption of nutrients and the elimination of wastes (toxins). The heat is necessary to accelerate the elimination of toxins, which have accumulated beyond the body’s ability to tolerate them.

* ANOTHER QUOTE FROM A WELL KNOWN DR: “In my over thirty years of experience, I have never seen or even heard of a single person, young or old, who actually died from a fever, unless the fever patient was drugged with antibiotics. A fever is used to facilitate the elimination of toxins. In some instances the burden of a toxic drug, with its own inherent side effects adding to the already existing burden of excess toxins in the body, will injure or kill a fever patient. In other words, it’s the drugs that killed and the fever was blamed.”

 ‎”A DR’s OPINION ON WHAT YOU SHOULD DO: “Do not fear a fever. It is one of the most common and obvious means by which the intelligent body protects itself. A patient with a fever should take no drugs, eat very, very lightly (ideally, fresh fruit and juices exclusively), drink water, stay still, use cool (not cold) compresses on the forehead, chest and back of the neck, and allow the body to do what it is trying to do without interference. The fever will then accomplish its intended task and subside. This is an instance when drugs can only hurt.

 Here’s an excerp from a book that discusses the Lymph system & why it’s so important to practice prevention for health & keep the Lymph system clean, which is exactly what a fever is trying to do to protect your body!

 * “You must be wondering, and rightly so, why, if a clean lymph system is so important to health, it is not more widely understood. The answer is money. There’s no money in it. A clean lymph system prevents ill health before it happens. The entire health-care industry in the United States, which generates $1.3 trillion a year (that’s $3.5 billion every day, weekends included), entirely depends on treating people after they’re sick. There are no products to sell that flush the lymph system and keep it clean.”

 *FOOTNOTE:

One source of this info comes from excerps of a book called “Fit For LIfe Not Fat for Life” by Harvey Diamond who also co-authored a book called “Fit for Life” in 1983. He’s talking about the Lymph system & how there is not as much money in prevention vs the healthcare industry. He has been living a natural lifestyle since the 1970’s & is living proof that letting our bodies heal themselves & prevention is the way to go.

New Year’s 2012 (Restoring Freedom)

Leave a comment

It’s a new year in the Free World
Majestic clouds roll by
with a cool breeze off the water
I sit and ponder why

A world that looks so peaceful
could end up such a mess
we blink for just a moment
Enough I can not stress

Just what I think we’re headed for
Might never been the same
It’s much too late to worry now
Of fault and who’s to blame

It’s time for us to take a stand
Indeed we must make haste
For the price we paid for freedom
Is far too great to waste

Instead let’s look for answers
And leaders who are just
To help redeem our principles
Restore our nation, our trust

For all this pointing fingers
The lies, deceit and hate
And choosing to ignore the task
Could easily seal our fate

It’s time to bring together
Once great is now forlorn
With pride, hope and love
In the image she was born

So on this of all New Years
I beg you, please reflect
And choose your part, no goal too small
return our dignity and respect

I don’t believe we’ve lost her yet
We must stop keeping score
Instead seek wisdom from our past
To learn there’s so much more

Bless all those who gave us strength
From generations past
To know their dreams were not in vain
And truly meant to last
