The Wisdom of Will Rogers

They were very religious people that come over here from the old country. They were very human. They would shoot a couple of Indians on their way to every prayer meeting.”

— Will Rogers – Cherokee

Word.  We have to kill people in order to save them…while going against “thou shalt not kill”…

And this quote really spoke of Rogers’ wisdom and “getting it”.

“Every man’s religion is good. There is none of it bad. We are all trying to arrive at the same place according to our own conscience and teachings. It don’t matter which road you take.”

Absolutely!

More Native American wisdom here.

 

**edited to add:  I found this tidbit of Rogers’ death:

While Rogers is now touted as the Favorite Son of Oklahoma, he never lived there. Born in the Cherokee Nation in 1879, Rogers grew up among his people. He left home to travel the world in 1902, five years before Indian Territory – renamed Oklahoma – was subsumed into the United States. ”We spoiled the best Territory in the World to make a State,” Rogers wrote. Only later would he master the lariat and become one of the most popular men in the country. He would return home throughout his life and always hoped to reside there after his stint in popular culture. Unfortunately, he died in a 1935 plane crash before he was able to retire.

 

…died in a plane crash…hmmm….

Living the Good Life…

…you know, Living the Good Life has taken on a whole new meaning since my re-evaluating what I considered important…

Living Sustainably brings such satisfaction.  When we can use our brains to figure out ways to have what we want without hurting the Earth makes me happy.

And it makes me doubly more so when I see that spark among the young.  I really was giving up hope that they were not “getting it”. I had talked with the young women about using cloth pads and I was resoundingly rebuffed with “eeewww” bordering on hysteria.

sigh…

But then Zero Waste Chef, Ann Marie Bonneau puts together her wonderful website on all the ways she and those like-minded are carrying on where the Boomers left off.  ::does happy dance::

So, she has a great post on naturally carbonated lemonade, complete with ginger bug.  I am now proudly making my very first ginger bug.  Took me awhile to get here after all the upheaval this past year, but I’m here and plugging away.

Another great blog she had was on making kale chips using a solar oven.  There is a great link on solar oven festivals…or if you prefer, the website also just has instructions for solar cookers.  I love the one comment on someone using their car’s windshield as their “cooker”.

I noticed in the comments on a blog on microbead-free toothpaste that has a comment on yet another young one who has a great blog on reducing plastic, plastic, plastic.  If you watch the short video on zero waste chef’s site, you will understand what a huge impact microbeads have on the environment.  What’s really scary is that people think plastic is recyclable.  It isn’t!  I know, I know, they give us these neat recycle containers and we think we’re doing the environment a favor by putting our plastic garbage in them (I was one of the gullable).  But we’re not — the plastic is not, by its nature, able to decompose and transform into something that gives life, as nature’s cycle of life has brilliantly worked out.  Plastic just gets smaller, and smaller, until it becomes a scary microbead.  It doesn’t transform into something useful…it’s plastic FOREVER.

I just saw a movie on the mountains of plastic and how bad things really are:  albatross return to a certain island to mate every year.  The ocean brings in all types of plastic garbage…the film’s writer found plastic dating back twenty years!!    The birds ingest small bits of plastic, thinking they are food.  It was disgusting and disheartening to see them scooping up dead birds into one huge pile.  What are we doing to them? To us?

 

 

Another false flag: London

The minute they blamed it on ISIS, I knew it was yet another false flag:

 

The people running away are like actors in a movie….oh, wait….

And the second video states there was a practice drill three days before…wow, what a coincidence! /snark

And, of course, the actors wearing their number badges gives them away as being fakes.  Good Lord.

Of the videos I have seen, and comments on them, they haven’t made mention of March 22 as being the birthday of Mary Magdalene….hmmm….I wonder….

All the research money can buy…

Reblogging this for all the info included. Yeah, I feel pretty strongly about forced vaccinations on unsuspecting people, little or big, who are made ill.

(I am sorry if some of you are tired of this topic.  It’s on my radar right now and I’m going with it.  This is too serious.Those that make a profit off of them are powerful and wealthy enough to persuade people to do something that is against their own best interest.)

…the “study” on the link between the MMR and autism is the best “research” money can buy.

From Dachel Media Report:

Gupta: “So did Hannah have some sort of predisposition and then the vaccines tipped her over the edge into developing autism?  What is your belief now?”

Poling: I don’t believe that vaccines are the only way that you can tip over a child like Hannah to regress and have an encephalopathy, and regress into autism.  There are probably multiple triggers.  In my daughter, it was clearly the vaccinations. That was our experience.  In other…

Woman who was treated as a liar

has seen her day in court.  Good for her.  I am sorry she had to endure not only the crime but being re-victimized by those who were supposed to help her.  What a nightmare.

Muller was not charged with a sex crime because there is no appropriate federal law

What…???  No appropriate federal law for this crime?  Why, in 2017, is this type of assault not applicable under federal law?

Last, I leave you with the best comment:

Manic depressives don’t kidnap and torture people, psychopaths do.
