Success

If I could free
More than I enslave
If I could inspire
More than I repress
That would be successful.

If I could remove
More stumbling blocks than I place.
If I could live in moderation
More than excess.
That would be successful.

If I could remain balanced
More than tip the scales
If I caused smiles
More than duress.
That would be successful.

If I could be
More than I do
Without thought of
My own success.
Then, and only then
Would I be successful.

Letter to CP24

Continuing in the letter theme and making today a letter day. Here is a copy of a letter I sent to and had sent back by, CP24 in Toronto, Canada.

Nov. 10th
RE: Report on CP24's Legal Briefs (Tasers)
ATTN: To ALL Whom This Concerns
Blessings & Warnings
Unbeknown to you, you have already been blessed by my lack of a phone or an internet connection, lest you receive the full brunt of my fury and disgust. As it stands, you are only getting the calmed version that comes from sitting in front of a keyboard. I realize you will never report this, so you might note that is not why I AM, taking the time to write it.
Regarding tonight's report on tasers, which i only consider, yet another example of; "Making the NEWS" instead of "Reporting the TRUTH".
Important FACTS,(Just a few) the media keep omitting in ALL of your reports on this, and other related issues:
"Murder" is not defined by the weapon used, but by Actions resulting in DEATH...Premeditated or not...in TRUTH, 4 heavily armed and armoured, RCMP Officers attacked and murdered an unarmed Polish man, (who shall remain nameless in honour of ALL who have been murdered at the hands of police and kept in silence), who had already surrendered at Vancouver Airport.
Both, "Accessory After the FACT" and "Conspiracy to Commit Murder, After the FACT", refer to EVERYONE who willfully participates in the cover up of that crime. This would include; every single cop who witnessed the crime and didn't make the arrest...every single prosecutor and government official who likewise, refused to issue arrests and prosecute these crimes...every single reporter who called it a "Death", instead of reporting his "MURDER", who says; "he died", instead of saying; "He was killed by police and this crime was covered up by every single law enforcement official, right up to Prime Minister Harper himself, who has refused to take action and instead stands behind the murderers."
This is the same side of the line Bush and his Supporters are standing on. This is where Governments all around the world stand...This is where religion and society itself stands and is the very foundation on which it has built itself.
It might be important to point out at this time however, that it is also the "opposite side of the line" from where CHRIST stood.
At least in Christs time, people were smart enough to at least recognize a line had been drawn in the sand, even if they weren't wise enough to not cross it.
You use words that have no meaning and report lies as TRUTH with an arrogence and stupidity that fails to recognize the winds of change are already blowing.
You speak in a manner that suggests the unrighteous and dishonest shall always have power, that they are greater than GOD, and you need not worry about darkening your soul with their lies by repeating them...There are those of us in this world who do not appreciate having folks piss down our backs and tell us it's raining.
IMPORTANT SIDETRACK: I've also noticed now that November is here, the media is again stacking the numbers in favour of your war propaganda. For instance, I often hear about the number of Canadians killed in Battle on foreign lands, fighting for freedom during this great war, or that great war...But not about the number of veterans who have died on the streets of their own country from poverty and neglect, by the delayed and refused aid of the very government and people they fought for.
i've heard about the numbers who have given their lives in glory...But not about how many have had their lives stolen and are now homeless from a lack of affordable housing, or how many are constantly being "Moved Along" by police and literally "Marched to their Deaths", EVERY SINGLE DAY.
I humbly recommend you take a closer look to SEE which side of the line you are really on, lest you be in for a HUGE SHOCK in the NOW HERE future.
IMPORTANT SIDENOTE: (I AM, the "Sign of Jonah", and there are only four years left in this birthing cycle and then, dead or alive, I shall finish fullfilling the final prophecies for the "END of DAY's" and bring about the final cleansing and restoration of JUSTICE and CHRIST to the Earth.)
While i recognize that just because i say this, doesn't mean it's true...i hope you also realize that just because you don't believe it, doesn't mean it's not. Remember; "i don't think i know...i just know i'm thinking."
This will be THE END of my Blessings and Warnings for now.
(FROM: a 10 yr survivor of multiple & provable, police threats, attacks and Death Squad tactics in the cities of Toronto Ont, Kingston Ont, Vancouver BC, Victoria BC, and L.A. USA that has been denied BOTH Justice and Freedom of the Press)

Letter Back To A Friend.

Blessings Everyone:

I was attempting to get caught up on my emails(down to 250 so far...please be patient if you are in that list or maybe re-send...I've been offline and this too is just a brief stopover).

It was during this catchup phase that i ran across this reply from a friend(whose name shall remain nameless in recognition of many who have responded in similar kind). I thought I'd share this reply and my response as a sort of mass mailing to address, en masse, the like-minded.

The Reply:

Had "Have" AC
Had "Have"
Not Had "Of"
I find it hard to take it seriously if one cannot even get the language right. Had I "have" (or "Of") spent more time in English class...................


My Response:

Hey Bro:


Not sure what you are talking about here...I'm guessin' (silent "G") you've heard of something called "SLANG". Though, I find it hard to believe you would even have issues with a spelling mistake, or grammatical error of any kind, that justifies your ignoring cries for help, or standing against and stop supporting those who abuse, torture and murder.
While you are in your box, on this kick of proper language and using the rules and definitions of others however; PLEASE, pay careful attention to the word "Martyr"; derived from the Greek, meaning: "To witness"...Not as defined by most dictionaries, which FACTUALLY describes what society DOES to the witness, rather than defines the words TRUTH. What dictionaries define is really another word altogether, this misleading definition is used as a means to SCARE people away from the TRUTH...while lying and silence to the TRUTH are BOTH richly rewarded...If you remember, even Einstein considered the latter to be the greater of the two evils.
I must admit i don't have those fancy speechwriters like Bush and Harper who say such brilliant things that make you folks follow them instead...and I failed grade 9 typing...yet somehow, I can still recognize rihgt from wrnog, no matter how it's spelt. (Did i spell "spelt" right? cause it's not in my spellchecker and I want you to take this seriously, even though I AM, a clown.) Of course, had you spent more time in English class yourself, you might have corrected me correctly, remembering SLANG is also a recognized form of writing, especially between friends...(At least I didn't say; "You'ze Guys")
I also recognize that when I give my support to LIARS, MURDERERS and THIEVES, it puts me in BAD company. Even with my lack of writing skills, I still recognize the stupidity behind the statements; "I was just following orders." or "Doing what I was told", "It's not my job." or "That's the way we do it, cause that's the way it's always been done." etc.etc.
I recognize as well, that most of the lies like these, that have been passed on to me, came from my parents, who learned them from their parents, etc as taught to them by society, because LIES are the driving force behind "Society".
I also recognize the only way to break this cycle is to STOP repeating the lies.
Just like I recognize that when I buy "NIKE"(Just a corporate example, not the end all and be all of evil industry), I'm supporting child slavery in China...so I don't.
I recognize that ALL of MY actions have consequences and EVERYTHING i do has meaning...as well as everything i don't do. I recognize that when people say things aren't as bad here as somewhere else, that really just means that if i don't do something about it now...they will be.
I fully recognize the propaganda of the NEWS that tells us how many soldiers have died overseas fighting for our freedom, but fails to mention that well over 1000 times that number are killed by PLANNED neglect on Canadian streets every month, caused DIRECTLY from being denied this said "Freedom". PAID for by people like yourself, who continue to give your support to the killers, instead of refusing that support and standing with the victims. You can say I don't really know anything about your life now and am not in any position to judge, but I'm guessing you've paid your taxes, and maybe even voted for people who support and continue to stand behind the murder of MILLIONS of PEOPLE, both foreign and domestic...And who continue to rape and destroy the lands and waters for financial gain...Stealing the very FUTURE of ALL our existence if we continue following.
I'm also guessing you've paid your dues, though for years ACTRA has been attempting to "Force me Out", withholding monies, royalties, extra charges, etc. because I was "Homeless". "My agency" already did it...even in violation of our contract. I refused to "jump through hoops" and being told I'm not allowed to have that kind of attitude because I'm Canadian. Though, I'm in no position, nor have any real desire to sue anyone...Yet, for some reason, i didn't, and still don't notice ANY of my UNIONIZED brothers and sisters standing behind me, protecting themselves and each other from this type of behavior and discrimination. Despite being homeless, broke, etc. when I got an email years later from "My Agency" saying I'd been requested for "SAW 2"...i said "no"...despite being told how I'm making a big mistake if i ever want to work in this industry again.

Please understand, you know i love you and care about you and I'm not trying to BLAME you, or say that I'm better than you in any way, but only help you SEE what's really going on. As a new parent, I'm guessing you are learning even more that children are sponges...But what are they REALLY learning from US?
Not from what we tell them, but by what we show them.
What are children really learning when we do those commercials for the products we tell them we can't have or shouldn't buy?
What are children really learning when we keep paying taxes to governments that are stealing and wasting the money murdering it's own citizens...while we just complain and DO NOTHING about it, but continue to support and complain?
What are they learning when we sell them into slavery at birth by CAPITALIZING their names and then further inducting them into slavery by encouraging them to get Slave Identification Numbers (SIN cards), or do you not recognize the ironic metaphor of being "without SIN" during the "END of DAYS". Tell me again about this legacy we are leaving behind...is it tied to BUSH's legacy?
What excuses are we giving them for OUR cowardice and non-action against injustice? That having our chance to get a big screen TV is more important than saving lives and establishing TRUTH and JUSTICE. How is it better for anyone, other than the liars, to teach children to accept these lies, rather than to question and stand against them.
Instead of continually asking what is wrong with kids these days and blaming it on video games or TV shows, when are we going to take responsibility for what's on the NEWS, and SEE what's really meant by TV programming?

All words and grammar aside...it is our ACTIONS and NON-ACTIONS that teach most of what they learn.
Seriously, how do you expect me to take you seriously, when after I share all these things, you only take issue with the grammar of how it's been said, rather than the root of what's being shared. That just sounds like a lame excuse to not even hear me, rather than a reason not to listen. Please keep in mind...I don't ask anything of anyone, that I haven't already done myself.
I AM, without SIN, not without ability.
I AM, without ID, not without identity.
I AM, without a bank account, not without resources.
I AM, without an address, not without a place to live.
I AM, without a house, not without a home.
I AM, not a member of society.
I AM...A member of GOD (Guardians Of Destiny)
Can YOUR leaders say the same? Now anyone can SAY these folks are not their leaders, but so long as they continue to support them and do as they are told, their ACTIONS SPEAK for them and say they are.

Looking is not the same as seeing...Seeing provides TRUTH.
Hearing is not the same as listening...Listening implies ACTION.
Wisdom is not the "Accumulation of Knowledge'...Wisdom is the proper"Application of Knowledge" (This is why the ancient's warned; "Do not seek to know...Seek to be wise.")
I still love *ya brother.

your humble servant,

*("ya" is slang for "YOU")

Dalai Lama Spam

Winner of today's SPAM award goes to...The Dalai Lama. Now i fully realize, this probably wasn't photo-shopped by the Holy Dude himself, and this is just another example of how words are used, abused and shared by folks.

In the past, i have extended an open invitation to the Dalai Lama, which still exists(and all others that call themselves leaders) to spend a moment and walk with me, but he has yet to receive this message to heart. It leaves me thinking however, if he had of spent say; even "Seven days in Canada" with me, as i would be currently unable to spend Seven Years in Tibet" with him, he might have shared the three "L's" instead of the three "R's".
3. Follow the Three L's
>LOVE, GOD(by whatever name you use) with all your heart and soul and have FAITH.
>LOVE, thy neighbor as you would...
>...LOVE thy 'SELF'.
with this trinity of understanding, it is simple to live and just be, instead of wondering what to do.

He might even have shared a greater understanding of the VAST difference between your wants and needs.
4. Your wants and needs are NOT the same thing, though they often mirror each other. Your needs are always provided for you on your journey, exactly where and when you TRULY need them. Your only true obligation is to take the journey...as you go, you grow in FAITH and STRENGTH.

He might too have shared the VAST difference between "Compassion and Sympathy" with "EMPATHY"...And the HUGE similarities of 7notes, 7colors and 7 senses. That everyone is an artist searching for their medium, and we are all musicians seeking our instrument. Finding out who you are in the eyes of the ONE, that created you.

This post isn't meant to be sarcastic in tone, but it is meant to be honest and truthful.

An "Ancient" Gathering

Welcome to My World
An Open Invitation to anyone and everyone in the world
that has the word ANCIENT in their name.

I was thinking, as I have met a fairly large number of cool people that also have the word "ancient" hidden in their name, we could all get together and have an ancient gathering of ancient minds and maybe actually seek out REAL solutions to the VERY REAL problems that are being compounded by greedy stupidity.
We could have meetings every solstice(to make it easy to remember) gathered from the four corners of the earth and keep moving the location to help everyone get there.

We could gather together ancient's on every continent at once.
We could be the ancient people.

I Found THIS Today

I was walking down the street and looked down to see "THIS".
I never realized how much fun I could have with THIS.
I was asking people all over if they had lost THIS.
Some people thought THAT was funny, but THIS is funny.
I was also asking people if they were looking for THIS...
If they had ever seen THIS...
Do they know what THIS is...
The entire rest of the afternoon was spent having fun with THIS.
Though, some people tried to take THIS away from me.
I told them they would never get THIS by force.
Please share THIS with everyone.

GOD's Questions

Just to give folks an idea of what their trial might be like when they are JUDGED.

The chief prosecutor during these proceedings shall be GOD (High Exalted Grand Imperial Omnipotent Stomper - to some). Your defense attorney will be the devil (are you surprised most lawyers are in Hell) and I AM, your judge (Judgement of Mankind was deferred to the 'Son of Man'.)

Prime Minister Apologizes

Part One


Part Two
Here's what he did...simply said; "I'm sorry."
He doesn't understand that saying "you're sorry"
only means you're sorry you didn't get away with it,
BEING sorry means it doesn't keep happening.
Here's what he didn't do...END the policies that STILL KILL.
Stop RAPING the lands and waters.
Stop displacing and stealing from the natives and poor.
Stop putting property rights BEFORE human rights.
Stop the 85% incarceration rate for first time native offenders
VS
the 9% incarceration rate for ALL other races COMBINED.
Stop robbing natives of their dignity by enslaving, incarcerating, or corrupting them.
In FACT, this is just a SMALL mention of the HUGE number of things
Mr. Harper DIDN'T do when he simply said..."sorry",
as though it WASN'T done on PURPOSE,
as though it was just some horrible mistake.
If you'd like to see how this relates to other issues(that natives can definitely relate to), go see the beginning of the Charter Challenge that has begun in Victoria, BC.
I guess that since Mr Harper has yet to comment on this issue either,
he must be preparing ANOTHER apology.
Message back to Mr. Harper, regardless of ANYTHING my native brothers and sisters say in response to your PRESS RELEASE...I wanted to personally make you aware...I have it on EXCELLENT authority, your words have fallen SHORT of GOD's ears.

2007 Victoria Reviewed

Submitted by richard on Sat, 2008-01-05.

Another year has passed and the situations facing homeless people on the streets of Victoria remain horrific. 109 people died while living homeless on the streets of Victoria in 2007, this statistic is based on the number of funeral services held at ‘Our Place’ which is the primary drop-in center in downtown Victoria. On average, 2 homeless people died every week in Victoria in 2007, up slightly from 106 deaths in 2006.
In February 2007 the ‘Homeless Needs Survey’ counted 1242 people as homeless or unstably housed and at risk of becoming homeless.
In December the ‘Mayor’s Task Force on Breaking the Cycle of Mental Illness, Addiction and Homelessness’ announced that 1550 people were considered to be homeless on the streets of Victoria. These two research projects cost taxpayers approximately $500,000 and used up thousands of volunteer hours. The conclusions are documented in two massive documents that simply state that homeless people need homes. They call for action but to date none has been forthcoming from any level of government.
In October the Victoria Steering Committee on Homelessness launched a website to help inform the public about ways to help the homeless through action: www.ourwayhome.ca In October the Vancouver Island Health Authority attempted to close Laurel House, a drop in center for people living with mental illness, but faced fierce opposition from members, a house occupation, and outrage from the general public. Closure was suspended for six months. Many of these people are on the brink of street life. VIHA cut down 30 endangered Arbutus trees in order to prevent homeless people sleeping under them, and were fined by the City of Victoria for destroying the endangered trees. The Needle Exchange, run with funding from VIHA, was evicted from its downtown location.
The City of Victoria and the Attorney General of British Columbia have worked hard throughout the year to keep a constitutional issue from being heard by a BC Supreme Court Judge. The question is whether the public has the right to sleep outside on publicly owned land when there is no other place to sleep due to a lack of affordable housing or emergency shelter. The point being that jailing people for sleeping when there is no other place to sleep is against the human rights and freedoms as defined by the Canadian Constitution. The City of Victoria has not responded to a Judge who wants a firm definition of the word 'abode' in the context of its use in a city bylaw which prohibits sleeping outdoors, or for that matter sitting, standing, lying, and squatting on public space.
The mayor has ordered police to post signs stating “No Loitering, Camping, Soliciting, or Trespassing” at stores all over the downtown core. Legally, these signs take the onus off the property owner or store manager to formerly launch a complaint and allow police to act on their own to remove people from private property. Using the ‘chattel’ bylaw Mayor Allan Lowe and the Council of Victoria have mandated that the City Police force take backpacks away from street people. Any belongs that are set down on sidewalks or streets are confiscated and a fine must be paid to reclaim the item. Hundreds of homeless people have had backpacks, blankets, foam, tarps, and other items taken away.
In April, with a great deal of media spin, Premier Gordon Campbell announced that the province of BC spent $80 million towards low income housing, protecting 996 affordable housing units by buying 15 buildings in Vancouver, Victoria and Burnaby. However, these units were all occupies and no new housing was made available for homeless people. $250 million has been set aside to building affordable housing but no housing construction has begun and the money has not seen the light of day.
In May Premier Gordon Campbell increased his own salary by 54% with an increase of $89,000 on top of what he already makes. All MLA’s increase their wage by %29 although the minority NDP, unable to stop the bill from passing, donated their wage increase to charity. Victoria’s apartment vacancy rate is 0.5%, one of the lowest in Canada. The minimum rent for a bachelor suite is $500 per month, if you can find it and more likely around $650. 2 bedroom apartments are a minimum of $1000. Welfare in British Columbia is one of the lowest in the country at $235 for support of a single person with $375 maximum for shelter. The highest rate of income assistance is for a 2 parent family with children at $401.06 support and a maximum rent of $820.
British Columbia has the highest poverty rate in Canada.
