The importance of giving homemade gifts

Shane Ellison mentions on his own website, so I thought I’d check it out.  I’m struggling right now, but this site lifted my spirits.  Wonderful to read of kindred spirits.

I have found myself, someone who used to think that only store-bought gifts were superior and meant that I cared…ha.  Now I know the great joy in giving something that I’ve made myself –especially if I have made it well.

And if the receiver of the gift does not share in that joy…well, that is their issue to deal with.  Perhaps they will come to see the shallowness of store-bought versus homemade, perhaps not.  That is their journey to make.

One Nation, Under Drugs

I thought it time to revisit Shane Ellison’s website.  He is a former Big Pharma researcher that quit when he realized they were not in the business of making people well, but in it for greed, greed, greed.

This page of his website has some good videos, one of which is “One Nation, Under Drugs”.  There’s a funny one, too, of a mock Nancy Pelosi.

Near the end of the page, Ellison explains why he left Big Pharma.  Everyone should read this.

I also found a video, referred to by Fight Autism and Win website:

This video highlights the Reagan-era law that allows Big Pharma to poison people with no consequences.  And the taxpayers foot the bill for the damage the vaccines cause.  Sweet deal, eh?

NSA spying on spouses, girlfriends, etc.

I wish I could say I was surprised to read this, but no.  I really don’t know how this possibility was ignored by Congress when they enabled NSA and DHS to pry into innocent Americans’ private lives.  It’s like there was a collective passiveness about allowing them free reign to do as they please.

Well, ladies, how do you feel now that this surveillance includes following you around wherever you go??

Good God.  If you are that insecure about the relationship, break it off.  Because it’s over once the trust is gone.

And it’s been my experience that the one who is accusing the other of infidelity is actually the one committing it.  Or the one *thinking* about committing it, i.e., a roving eye.

This is just abominable.  An incredible violation of women’s rights.  And another example of entitlement – I have a right to violate her rights because she is MINE.

Being Peace…

Peace to you all, my friends. May you be warm and safe and dry.

Brahanism: This is the sum of duty: Do naught unto others which would cause you pain if done to you. (Mahabharata 5:1517)

Buddhism: Hurt not others in ways that you yourself would find hurtful. (Udana-Barga 5:18)

Confuscianism: Surely it is the maxim of loving-kindness: Do not do unto others what you would not have them do unto you. (Analets 15:23)

Taoisim: Regard your neighbor’s gain as your own gain and your neighbor’s loss as your own loss. (T’ai Shang Kan Ying P’ien)

Zoroastrianism: That nature alone is good which refrains from doing unto another whatsoever is not good for itself. (Dadistan-I-dinkik 94:5)

Judaism: What is hateful to you, do not to your fellowman. That is the entire law; all the rest is commentary. (Talmud, Shabbat 31a)

Christianity: So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up…
