The Day The Earth Stood Still, great film, way ahead of its time. I watched a video on youtube I never realized how long Mr. Aykroyd has been researching and following UFOs,( ufology ) and other life forces in our universe. He has had the fascination, and intrigue since he was a kid. We had the Roswell incident, there is a list of sightings that goes way back in centuries. I believe, one obvious reason, our immense universe.
Animals prove it all the time, we can communicate without words, because I am a human being, I can communicate in multiple ways. Hence my blog, to express my thoughts, opinions, experiences. Sandy taught me that regardless of words, she always loves me, she would lay down her life for me.
This is a tough time for me, those of you who have never had a pet dog, or other animal, you are missing out. I respect not everyone likes having, and raising one in their home, however you miss out on great lessons that animals teach you. My dog has been the best friend I have ever had. She has loved me unconditionally and she has protected me, been my body guard. She is, and has been one of my most loyal friends.
The timing could not be worse, my dogs life is ending and my boyfriends brother is struggling with health issues, I can not go into specifics with his, because it is a private matter for him, and I pretty much write about experiences, circumstances, that affect me directly in my life.
I wish people would do the research on the VietnamWar, like many of our other wars. Wars have never been the answer, solution, and the U.S. always lies about their reason for going into them. Yes lies. I wrote a blog on November 30, 2010 about Daniel Ellsberg, it prompted me to re mention it. I recently got an email containing a link regarding Jane Fonda, hateful untruthful lies they still write about her. She stood for injustice, lies being told to our soldiers, and U.S. citizens about the events leading up to, and about the war. I would love to know what the Vietnamese say or think about Ms. Fonda.
We took her to the vet yesterday and I got the worst news. My beautiful dog has bone cancer in her elbow that is why she can not use her leg, and the cancer has spread to her lungs and ribs. I am so sorry for her, my poor babies organs are collapsing, she is slowly dying. I was hoping we had gotten all the cancer. ( she was operated on last May with adenocarcinoma in her mammary gland) She is the best dog, friend I could ever have been blessed with. I have never experienced a direct immediate family loss until now, and its too much. As the tears run down my face, I was not expecting this outcome yet, the facts are not good, however maybe a miracle could happen. She is so brave, still nurturing and still loving after 10 years, worrying about us, despite her condition. I do not want to lose her. I try not to cry near her because she senses all that.
Its a double whammy because it affects my boyfriend just as hard, he is losing his buddy. Cancer has played a big part of his life with ones close to him. This is a hard time for our hearts.
I hope that people really start to think about the huge significance of Martin Luther King, he stood up for everyone that was being discriminated, the poor, military vets, race, sexual orientation, religion, etc. He was not biased, he was not only thinking of his race, he saw inequality happening everywhere. The most obvious group were the blacks who where getting mistreated they had no legal rights, voting, owning a home. He understood in a country of freedom, all must be free and have the same rights, not some. And we still have small versions of Mr. Kings crusade, however it should be bigger, most recently our Occupy Wallstreet brothers and sisters, Our LGBT etc.
If we do not stand for everyone to have the same rights, then our Government and its legislation continue to have power over us, eliminating all our rights, our freedoms. If you single out groups such as homosexuals, gender, equal pay, people who have fire arms, people without health coverage, over taxing the poor, people of a different race, by limiting or taking away our inalienable rights for certain groups, a republic country will never happen. We, the citizens of the U.S., keep the continuance of ignorance alive, keeping ourselves divided and defeated for not standing up for each others rights, and amended rights in the Constitution.
If lawful rights are being taken away from groups of citizens, and we do nothing, the powers see the ignorance we display amongst ourselves, our brothers and sisters, we take no action to stand for equality, so it is happening to all of us. We are getting screwed and it is time to get our heads out of our butts and to start paying attention to the important issues and choices, rather than the many superficial choices we have.
It ‘s weird to think that there is a part of me that shines less. I am Spanish and American. I come from parents of two different cultures, my heredity is encoded in me. We are full of depth and mystery, however there are parts that are integral to who we are. I know that my American culture has dominated more in my life than my Spanish. This is not an omission of rejecting my Spanish roots, its recognizing that I have not balanced it well. Most people I meet can visually see I am mixed however I do not have an accent.
It just hit me a couple days ago, I feel like I’m wanting to embrace all of me, celebrate all of who I am. ( I have done this to a certain degree but this feels different) I think helping my boyfriends niece with Spanish got my wheels turning. Going back to Spain a couple years ago, being surrounded by family, its part of me.
I posted a blog February 17th,2012 regarding dictators that the U.S. has removed through the decades and I think about Muammar Gaddafi, being removed, killed in 2011, under President Obama’s presidency. The Libyans tell a very different story about their Libya and Gaddafi from the one we are given, fed by our media. students site , I found this link because I wanted to know the news broadcasting agencies for Libya and other reporting news stories not being reported. There are many resources on the internet to do the research, investigate, question what is orchestrated in front of you.
What is going on with the flu ? Who besides the CDC is reporting on the out break and numbers of affected individuals in the U.S. I know of a case that the child was diagnosed with the flu and his parents were prescribed Tami flu for protection against child (diagnosed with flu) , the parents were directed by doctor to take it, and that crap prescribed was not cheap !
Remember the swine flu ?
CNN eliminated its entire department of international investigating , this was done last spring 03/2012, WTF ? Journalist have been traveling abroad for stories for eons, what kind of crap is that, what kind of news will CNN be providing ? Pictures Photoshopped, TV footage that is made up, this is why you can not rely on the media folks. On The Daily Show, you can catch Jon Oliver speaking to an ex CNN journalist Kaj Larsen, and Brad Adgate. (he is a media analyst, SVP research, for Horizon Media) (Still trying to find out about Horizon Media, who the heck are they ?) If anyone has researched this company please fill me in, in the mean time I will continue to research.
The Newsroom on HBO, a TV series that I’m assuming is basically a mockery of our news system in the U.S., not sure however I will report back when I watch it.
If you have not seen it, the three parts to a Paradise lost, you must. It is a documentary documenting 18 years with 4 separate films on the real case that took place in the state of Arkansas that begun on May 5 1993 . I watched all 4 films, the three parts of paradise lost and West of Memphis.
This documentary, the time invested, all the professionals from camera crew to attorneys who donated their time freely for the last 18 years to stand up for human rights, god bless all of you. They felt it was paramount to stand up for the three boys who were unjustly, corruptly sentenced to jail for a crime they may or may not have committed. From the arrest to the trial it was all botched,made up, nothing was researched, forensics, interviews, It had many holes, and stunk like swiss cheese. Why did Hollywood get involved ?
Thank you HBO, thank you, for reminding us that we have a horrible legal system and that most citizens do not get media worthy attention. Citizens in the U.S. can face horrible injustice, many real people do all the time . We need to be reminded that not everyone will walk away, people will stand and come together, and reason, logic, truth can or should prevail in the end. They want people across the world to invoke critical thinking, the media as well. as our justice system distorts legal rights.
How many times have you seen, heard about new DNA testing that exonerated wrongful guilty sentencing for many innocent people who have served many years in prison needlessly.
