High Society - Who THEY are

Ever heard the phrase; "THEY are behind it all." or "It's all THEIR fault, or "THEY are just Liars, Murders & Thieves."
'THEY' this or 'THEY' that, but have you ever truly wondered who "THEY " are? Some think "THEY" are the government, but THEY aren' TRUTH, 'THEY' own the government. 'THEY' decide who gets to play and who has to pay. 'THEY' figure it should be up to them as to who lives and who dies...but again, I ask you; "Who are THEY?"
As mentioned in the past, to find the right answers, we must first find the right questions.
Has anyone ever noticed that we have a "High Society", but no "Low Society". I mean, we have a 'Low Class', a 'Medium Class', and a 'High Class', but we only have "society" in general, or "High Society". Strange that it is 'High Society'and not GOD, that dictates how people are allowed to live and how they are not. Are the decisions being made based on NEED or GREED? Are these ByLaws made for the benefit of the many by the few, or for the exclusion and control of the many by the few? Society calls itself "civilized", and yet has built itself up by being anything but.
Here is a piece of writing from the year 1845 that provides a bleak and sobering thought even today, as poverty and torture continues in the "FREE WORLD", but is prevented from being FACTUALLY reported by the media. Whether by force or choice, they only "Make the NEWS instead of Report the TRUTH."
"When one individual inflicts bodily injury upon another, such injury that death results, we call the deed manslaughter; when the assailant knew in advance that the injury would be fatal, we call this deed MURDER.
But when society places hundreds of proletarians, which is quite as much a death by violence as that by the sword or bullet;
When it deprives thousands of the necessities of life, places them under conditions in which they are unable to live- forces them, with the strong arm of the law, to remain in such conditions until that death ensues, which is the inevitable consequence- knows that these thousands of victims must perish and yet permits these conditions to remain,
it's deed is MURDER.
Just as surely we the deed of the single individual;
disguised, malicious murder, murder against which none can defend himself, which does not seem what it is, because no man sees the murderer, because the death of the victim seems a natural one, since the offence is more of one of omission than of commission.
But MURDER it remains..."
- frederick engels (1845)
Now what are you going to do about it...perhaps you have been unaware that by your actions of supporting society, you have FACTUALLY been making yourselves accessory to MURDER on a spiritual level. It's the entire; "I gave at the office" mentallity that has brought us to where we are. Stop giving at the office and start to make it personal...stop giving money to corrupt organizations that defer the monies away from those they are supposed to be helping and DO IT YOURSELF.
LEARN the TRUTH, and the wisdom of Jesus, when he shared the story of the "GOOD SAMARITAN."
He didn't say act as the Holy Man, or the countryman, BOTH of whom walked past the man in need, but to act as the good Samaritan who saw a person in NEED, and helped them, even though he was NOT a countryman, nor a person of his FAITH...he WAS a person in NEED.
Blessings & Shalom

Hockey: Sport or Spoof

Canada Wins Gold vs Russia
But at what cost has our sport been changed. The honourable Stephen Harper (ever notice how they get to call themselves "honourable" without actually being "honourable"...but I digress) was interviewed between periods during Canada's attempt to 3-peat as GOLD medal winners, and during this interview he called himself a "hockey purest"...but what does that mean?
It's been said you can tell alot about someone by how they play a game. I imagine it also says alot about a people by how they create their games. Do they make it easier to cheat and fix it to their favour? Or do they create a level playing field?
What does it mean when we allow our sport to be changed to accomidate TV ratings?
When claims are made to make the sport safer by adding the instigator rule to decrease fighting, but they don't add automatic icing to save players from crashing into the boards after racing for the puck.
Where are the more serious injuries really coming from?
What are the real reasons for taking a "penalty shot" and turning it into a game deciding factor for team play? This is a play that was given to someone when they made the heroic effort of getting a breakaway, and then being tripped up or interfeared with. This is not just something handed out because they don't want people getting too much value for ther money...after all, three periods of overtime is a whole new game people should be paying extra for.
They say it is to increase the excitment, but I find it boring waiting around for players to skate in one at a time, instead of the mad scrammbles that can occur from end to end. Maybe they should just create another game where guys just keep skating in on goal, and every 30 or so shots switch goalies...but don't try to call it hockey.
It certainly puts the advantage on the team who has the puck hog STAR players and takes away from the team that plays as a team.
As far as I can remember, neither Wayne Gretzky, nor Rocket Richard, nor Bobby Orr, nor any other GREAT player was EVER on the ice by himself for his entire carrer. As far as I remember, someone else dug the puck out of the corners for them and gave them an amazing pass, or they passed off to someone else who put it into the net for them, or had their goalie make an amazing save after they had their pass picked off.
Please understand. I'm not trying to take anything away from these amazing individuals, I'm only reminding everyone...they had help.
I love Bobby Orr and what he and others have done for minor hockey and putting the FUN back into the game. Perhaps it is long overdue for another review of HOW we adults play this GAME and the example we are setting for our children and then remind ourselves that before the word "HOCKEY"...comes the word "PLAY".
