Picking your battles

This is kinda a natural extension of my last post.  Let's face it, there are literally thousands of "battles" going on right now.  Hundreds of wars..... war on women, war on drugs, war on terrorism, war on children, war on our elders, war on.... well I think you get the point.

There is absolutely NO way that any one individual can battle in all these wars.  I think you'd agree.

So pick your battles but don't get mad or upset when someone else picks other battles to fight.

I understand: humans just cannot treat other humans, humanely.  Humans just cannot help trying to control other humans.  Humans just cannot seem to stop trying to gather power to themselves over other humans.

Yet that is the answer.  Just each individual human treat each individual human .... humane.

What does it mean to be "humane"?

Here are some things that I think fall into that category:

- show love
- show respect
- allow dignity
- give a helping hand
- protect the innocent
- teach
- learn
- be kind
- develop real relationships
- concentrate on the good parts
- do not tolerate evil

Feel free to add others since this is by no means a complete list.

Million "fill in the blank" marches

I think before it is all said and done, there will be a million "million -something- marches" going on over in DC.

We had the "million muslim" march which ended up with only about two dozen who showed up.

We had the "million biker" march with a HUGE turnout.

This weekend we are having the "million trucker" march where several items are being expressed: support for the constitution, gas prices, dissatisfaction with how the gov is being run...etc.

During this Trucker March, there is also going to be a Million Veteran's March.... that will be this Sunday folks!

Already another is being organized for Nov 5th..... a "million masks" march...begun by none other than the infamous "Anonymous" group.

Personally, I'd like to see a 'million MARSHAL march' where the United States Marshal's go into DC and arrest all those gov people who are committing treason.  This includes the Prez himself.

I'm not affiliated with any political party, nor do I want to be, they are disgusting IMO...and I'm disgusted with how this country has allowed their government to distort the Constitution.

America is a or shall I say, WAS a very unique country.  Never had any country have such vast INDIVIDUAL rights acknowledged.  Now whether this country was 'founded on God' or not... well I have a different view than most but that is not really what made this country unique.  It was the acknowledgement that INDIVIDUALS have rights that are THERE no matter who says what.  They are our rights given due to the fact we are simply alive and human.

Were they 'bestowed' by God?  I think so.  Right along with free will.  But even that is (sorta) irrelevant since the fact is they are NOT bestowed on us by OTHER MEN or OUR GOVERNMENT/S.  Therefore, no one has the "right" to take them away.... too bad so many are so willing to GIVE them away.

Side note:  It has never worked to punish the innocent for the crimes of the guilty.

Now all that said, I'm not surprised.  And dear readers, I hope you are ready because it's gonna get worse.

Individuals (and maybe their immediate families) will survive, but this government.... in fact; ALL governments... are not going to.

Buckle up!  Life is about to get much more bumpy.
