There is NO CLEAN ENERGY!

There is NO CLEAN ENERGY!


As we begin to change our paradigms, we must accept – there is NO CLEAN ENERGY!


The use of energy ALWAYS leaves something other than action. “Clean” technology always leaves behind something in a form useful and needed elsewhere, so well expressed in… Read full post »

once more, brainstorming...

 

Working together . . .


I wish to acknowledge first and foremost – living in the U.S., it's a whole lot easier for me to speak about people in Israel, both the recognized portion and the not recognized portion, i.e. Palestine, or Israeli occupied territories… Read full post »

Nothing brings people together like a common “enemy”

In this case – water, potable water

Water has always been a concern in the Middle East. Now, more and more, it's a concern – around the world.

Corporations are buying it, bottling… Read full post »

The Holy Land Concerto

Some – brainstorming . . .

I would love to begin some constructive dialogue :-)


the Concerto – changing the paradigm from the God model of the old testament, a violent, domineering God, separate and “above” to a “power with” God that is part OF . . .… Read full post »

a new start to an old blog...

It's been a very frustrating time -

trying to find better ways of expressing myself and the purpose of this blog.

Meanwhile, i've come up with a new name - i put it as a sub-title, but it did not show - may change the main title, just not right now.

Currently, it's all… Read full post »

Mr. Israeli P.M., and Mr. O. and Congress,

There are very few people in the world not aware of your, uh, “dislike” for Mr. Ahmadinejad, and disregard for the lives of Iranian people – of course, in the name of “security” . . .

But . . .… Read full post »

The Israel Conundrum

As so often happens – what is spoken and heard is the pain, violence, wants, proposed solutions, etc...

as with the State of Israel, the problem is not spoken, clearly defined.

Here it is – as I see it –


Israel/Palestine - the REAL problem...

It's that time of year again -

Israel “culling” it's Gaza citizens – you could call it – a zionist ritual – in the name of “self defense”.


I'm certain, at this moment, most Palestinian People, as well as many others around the world are – really angry… Read full post »

Healthful EconomieSSS!

Healthful  EconomieSSS!

The u.s. style economy - a few people create money out of nothing and demand more than they create, more than exists, in return - is a cancer that destroys not only as Robert Kennedy mentioned - everything that makes life worth living...

What's the world WE want?

 

We can have it... if enough people want it.

Some people will automatically start screaming - socialism, that's bad, it doesn't work, etc., etc., etc.

I will not disagree with them.

 

Doesn't something seem out of balance if "the wealthiest nation" to ever be is overnight… Read full post »

Living in the White House must bring about difficult decisions...

First let me explain - governments, including but not limited to the U. S. and Israel are fictions. When I anthropomorphise thses fictions, I really mean - the administrations, those that make laws for others, The Establishment.

They have varying levels of support, or not, from those whose money… Read full post »

 

 

Has "humanity' really changed over the millennium???

There are those for whom the game is "power over" others, and there are others for whom the game is "power with" others.

Most people continue to play on the side of "power over", believing they can be on "the winning… Read full post »

The Israeli Conundrum

Either:

Israel continue to deny citizenship to the natives it governs in the West Bank and Gaza and in good Orwellian language continue to tell itself it is a Jewish democracy surrounded by enemies who want to destroy it

or
