Reblogged this on 1EarthUnited and commented: Taxes, taxes, taxes! If US citizen, then move to Puerto Rico and pay only 4% corporate, Act 20 & 22! Lowest tax rate if you don’t want to give up US citizenship.

Aeyrie 

If they want to leave I say, “Adios! Don’ let the door hit ‘ya… If they either can’t or won’t help then getting out of the way is the right thing to do. As for me, I’m staying. She’s the land of my birth for better or worse. I’m not going to abandon her when the going gets tough. I think she’s worth saving, and evidently a lot of other people have thought so too. They gave their lives for her.

I like the quote by Hunter S. Thompson: “When the going gets weird the weird turn pro.” (That man knew something about weird.) There’s a lot of spiritual-type work to do here. I was weird enough to come to help, so maybe by the time we’ve gotten the ‘ol gal going in the right direction I will have turned pro.

Pearl 

Well…what I’m seeing here is a mass of Trump Haters…as far left as anyone can get. They have ZERO idea of the truth about DJT. What he’s done FOR our nation is absolutely unfathomable, and last night, during the State of the Union Address Trump had a 76% approval rating. But what made it greater, is that the Main Stream was forced to report the truth…it was their polls. Even many on the Dem side had no idea of his successes. Why? Because our main stream media LIES….and lies, and lies, and lies even more.

Take 90 minutes and listen. You’ll know exactly ‘why’ conservatives and former democrats who’ve switched over to Republican, love him so much. He ‘is’ a man of peace, he does ‘not’ want wars, and is why he’s pulling back all of our troops, no matter what they say.

Lada Ray 

Pearl, I’d agree with a lot of what you say about neo-libs, democrats and mass media. But how’s Fox any better?.. And c’mon! Trump ‘is a man of peace, he does ‘not’ want wars, and is why he’s pulling back all of our troops’ ?..

Pulling from where? From Syria, only because the US simply lost there to Russia and couldn’t unseat Assad? And only after Trump tried and failed to bomb Syria several times!

OR NOT pulling out and continuing to turn Ukraine against Russia?

OR preparing an invasion of Venezuela, which Trump cannot do only because Venezuelan army and Russia/ China won’t let him? That’s your ‘man of peace’?

OR, what about Trump announcing the biggest ever Pentagon budget?

PLUS! The NEW SPACE ARMS RACE TRUMP INTENDS TO START!

PLUS! TRUMP UNILATERALLY PULLING OUT OF NUCLEAR AGREEMENTS WITH RUSSIA, SO TO UNTIE THE US MILITARY-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX’S HANDS FOR A NEW ROUND OF EVEN MORE DESTRUCTIVE ARMS RACE!

Man of peace? Really?

Robert 

Considering the dire state of the US I would be glad to get out with just the shirt on my back and abundantly good health.

Pearl 

A question or so, Robert. Why do you hate the U.S.? What is your problem? You’re free to leave anytime to want to. No one is holding you back. What is the DIRE state you are referring to? I’m not seeing anything like that, and I’m 69 years old. I’m happy that Trump is doing what he’s doing…finally…someone to clean up everyone’s dirty mess. He’s literally finishing up the plans that John F. Kennedy was trying to do. If you’re into drugs, get help. Want money for school because you don’t have it, Apply for a Pell Grant. I used that as well. If you need a job, then go apply. There’s 300,000 new ones available. What is so horrible other than N.Y. with the new Infanticide Law? That’s what’s horrible. Murdering innocent babies when they’re literally born! Trump is writing the NO Partial Birth Abortion Law…and Democrats don’t want that. These are the things that make a lifestyle horrible.

He’s done totally amazing things in 2 years. He’s busting his hump on Trade Deals that are fair. He’s creating Peace in other nations…or trying to. He got China to stop stealing our intellectual property rights…and created 4 million new jobs total. The Employment Rate is record setting; Tax cut first was corporations, to bring them back to the US. For 2018 was for individuals…remember, the Crumbs?

We’re the #1 Oil Producers/exporters now. Trump is rebuilding this country as it was meant to be, and that’s a Republic. We are NOT a socialist nation, Robert and we never will be. Socialism doesn’t work. The LEADERS get it all, and dish out to the masses Crumbs. Look at what happened in Venezuela. People are starving…and he kept all the money that the U.S. gave them. You have ALL the Constitutional rights in tact.

Robert…plainly stated? Our lives are what WE make them. WE are the sole OWNERS of our Lives, and our lives are the sum total of OUR own decisions. No one can live our lives for us. But you wanna know what I do when I slip out of my good mood? I look at other people who’s image of reality is not as good as it could be. And every single one of us are in charge of that. Sometimes I dwell too much on the bad things. Then I pick up my bible, or read another book, or watch a video about a subject I’m interested in. I make this escape for a little while, and then reach inside to get those answers.

No matter what side of the political fence you’re on…it doesn’t matter. I could not stand Obama…so you know what I did? I pleased myself…I looked inside then had a silent conversation with myself and I found more answers about me, and that made me happy.

Our lives is not about money, position, power…it’s about what it means to us to be here. We can experience a Heaven on Earth…but we need to choose and desire it to happen for us. Everything else is just external baggage, that has no place running our lives. We need to focus on our needs, and greatest desires, then look for very creative ways to fulfill those. And sometimes, we can have more literal ‘fun’ with that than anything else.

On my own…I’m a very poor woman. Yet…I have many things that I want in my life that make me much happier than glorious wealth. I go outside and look at the wonders of the sky above, the vibrant colors that I’m so blessed to see. The simple things in this life mount up, and after awhile…a lot time I wasted on feeling sad just evaporates. Try that. Think about you…and the things you love the most. Come spring, take a very long walk in the woods and look how simple things are for life there. Life is easy, if we choose to make it that way.

Much love kiddo…and I pray you find what you’re looking for, because the way I see it at my age?…every single day that we live and draw breaths from the air, we have been blessed by heaven. Take care, kiddo. :)…and always remember…we are ‘not’ our politics. If we stand with that?…then your life will be lost in the world that you were pushed into, by trying to figure it all out.

Just think and care about you…and those you care about. I walk away from ALL of it many days. I’ve literally thrown my phone on the floor because I’m sick and tired of hearing the same stuff from the same people all the time..Always remember…it’s all about you, and no one else. I suggest you read “The Celestine Prophecy” by James Redfield…and if you can, purchase the CD…they made a movie from the book. It’s THE most beautiful representation of learning to feel hope and fulfillment. And when I’m down…I just pick up that movie at night and watch it. How many times doesn’t matter…it’s all about ‘taking care of ourselves and our future’…and creating our own ‘heaven on earth.’

Lada Ray 

‘it’s all about ‘taking care of ourselves and our future’…and creating our own ‘heaven on earth.’

Pearl, what if you see that something is wrong with the country around you? Would you still ‘take care of yourself and care about your own future, as long as you live well…’ And who cares what’s happening around you? This is what the marvelous book you are recommending is about, isn’t it? Sure, it’s great for individual personal growth and for your personal peace of mind too. And for your internal energy the peace of mind and inspiration is a must. Each of us has to take care of our inner world.

But it doesn’t help with the situation in the country or the world at large, as bad things happen when good people are silent. I can tell you that caring about your happiness alone and not caring about the world around you will eventually lead to a complete disaster, as is proven by the example of Ukraine.

What if some people see what’s happening around them as wrong, in their best consciousness? Are they bad people in your judgment?

What if they are right and you are wrong?

Or what if there is no right or wrong and everyone has their own karma and destiny to experience?

Lada Ray 

Pearl wrote: “We’re the #1 Oil Producers/exporters now”

This is a complete nonsense and it’s apparently based on untruthful data circulated by Trump and/or republicans to make the sheeple feel good. Good thing the world doesn’t listen to the US any more.

US is very far from being ‘the number one exporter of oil.’ Producer, maybe, but strongly debatable. Most of oil produced in the US, so you know, Pearl, is consumed BY THE US, and only a little exported. Moreover, US still imports oil, by the way, from hated by you Venezuela.

Don’t even get me started on the terribly harmful for the environment fracking process, which is mostly used for natural gas in the US, but a little for oil, too.

Not to mention how bad oil is for the environment, about which you seem to forget, Pearl.

And don’t get me started on the US gas wars in order to grab, like a highway bandit, the share of other countries, while subduing EU in the process.

Nothing to be proud of, Pearl!

  1. Reblogged this on 1EarthUnited and commented:

    The wider our perspective and consciousness level, the greater our ability to give back and correct mistakes or injustices.
    Pearl, you mentioned that socialism doesn’t work. That’s true when our collective level of consciousness does not support mutual cooperation and respect that is foundational for socialism or communism to work. People must WANT to do it for the benefit of all, and that starts from the top down. But what if the top is corrupt and no one does anything to change the system?
    On a higher level beyond the physical, Marxist notion of “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs”, can apply regarding social responsibility, moral statesmanship and safeguarding human rights for all ppl, not just a select group of “exceptional” Americans.
    Have you ever wondered why socialist experiments never work well in practice? Because opposing ideological forces attack it, like the West attacking the Soviet Union with treats of war, propaganda, media, mis-education in our schools, disinfo campaigns from CIA, regime change etc.
    For an example closer to home, just look at ACA… ObamaCare. US noble attempt at “socializing” universal health care confronts corporate insurance, medical establishment and lackey politicians from the right who did everything in their power to bankrupt the system. Instead of working with bipartisanship to help make it work, greed, fear, money and power sought to make it a failure. See what Lada means by expanding one’s world view and trying to help fix the world’s problems by raising consciousness, opening one’s eyes, and coming from the heart! Peace

  2. Very interesting post, Ms Ray. I would guess that the world’s elite would very much like it if we all focused on gratifying personal desires rather than rising up out of their clutches. And I suppose Pearl’s comment shows how much people remain invested in Mr. Trump, even as his actions betray every person who voted for him, as did Mr. Obama and the Bushes and Clinton before him, all the way back to LBJ. I like the old saying: Pay attention to what politicians do, not what they say. Not sure how anyone could view the US, at this late stage in its psychopathology, as anything other than an extreme danger to itself and others, meaning all of humanity. I suspect it is too much to hope that Imperial America, as it attempts a scorched-earth action against its long-overdue appointment with karma, will go down without an enormously damaging fight. But we can hope.

  3. I always liked the below quote when discussing with people who say. There is nothing you can do or I will just worry about myself:

    “In Germany they came first for the Communists,
    and I didn’t speak up
    because I wasn’t a Communist.

    Then they came for the Jews,
    and I didn’t speak up
    because I wasn’t a Jew.

    Then they came for the trade unionists,
    and I didn’t speak up
    because I wasn’t a trade unionist.

    Then they came for the Catholics,
    and I didn’t speak up
    because I was a Protestant.

    Then they came for me,
    and by that time no one was left
    to speak up for me.

  4. Dear Pearl, you have the mistaken assumption that I live in the US. I don’t and I don’t do drugs either, including the officially approved ones, there’s no telling what’s in them. Suggest you google Dr John Bergmann for the low-down of the pharmaceutical industry. Try RT.com and Sputniknews.com and Davidicke.com and not forgetting all the info Lada has been putting out in industrial quantities, just to get a handle on what is going on in the world and to try and understand the prevailing level of conciousness. It appears that the entities in charge of the US are a vindictive bunch and are trying to bully the rest of the world into submission and failed miserably in Syria and are now attempting to destroy Venezeula, which was doing fine until they strangled their economy, hence all the shortages there. It’s not rocket science. If you assidiously followed Lada’s heads ups on South America you would understand that all the woes there are largely down to US regime change, which their state dept spokesperson said they don’t do. Victoria Nuland and the US ambassador to Ukraine were busy fomenting regime change in Ukraine in 2014 and US got it’s knickers in a twist when Crimea voted overwhelmingly to rejoin Russia. Which said, Russia never needed to invade Crimea as they were leasing the naval base there from Ukraine. US has been peddling unsavoury stories about Russia since 1945, which fooled me for a long time and I resent being lied to. US is so frightened of losing it’s empire that they just do spiteful, vindictive things to hold on but they will lose it. So, personally, I wouldn’t want to live in the US. Having read your reply, you sound remarkably like my sister in London. She speaks to me in the same sort of way, as though she’s superior to me; could be because she went to a convent school. LOL. Incidently I don’t do religion. Anyway, best of luck with your chosen lifestyle.

  5. Lada Ray, please understand that people like ‘Pearl’ are why this country is going to go the route of Rome and completely collapse. Millions care not for the other person, so long as their family is doing fine. Americans are not ones for caring about the world as a whole and in part, I think this is because Americans are basically isolated from the rest of the world. We only have Canada and Mexico and those in Latin American countries to contend with and so we are not like the people over in Europe since people there have the ability to ride a train from one country to another in no time flat. Our isolation is a huge problem and has led to a sense of superiority and exceptionalism only because no real vicious wars have been fought on American soil other than by Americans. No foreign ‘enemy’ has come here because of the geographical situation except for when the Japanese struck Pearl Harbor.

    Americans are a selfish and self serving lot; an every man for himself situation. That is a bad way to be, but that is America. For how can anyone with a sense of ‘other’ not see that America is wrong in staging a coup in a country that it has no business involving itself in? We have millions of poor, homeless, hungry people here in America who are living on the streets and in their vehicles and yet we have no problem with them living like that because if we did, we would be demanding that our tax dollars be used to house them when instead we voice no complaint when our tax dollars are invested in staging a coup in Venezuela or in Syria or used to wage war in Iraq over lies or in Afghanistan just because we want their opium shipped here and straight into the veins of Americans thanks in part to their doctors getting Americans hooked on opium through pain pills. For anyone to say that Trump is for peace is like saying that Bill Clinton did not engage in sexual activities with Monica Lewinsky; both are blatantly untrue and are outrageous lies. But Americans love lies because then they can excuse the vicious atrocities committed by America against the world.

    America needs to descend into the hell of its own making so that the rest of the world can get on with the business of living. I pray that the rest of the world makes this collapsing empire called, America, obsolete! It is my greatest and most fervent hope! And I am so thankful that Russia and China are the voices of reason in the midst of America’s insanity, lunacy and depravity. May Russia and China continue to protect sovereign nations from American hegemony.

    • Not only Americans are selfish and a self serving lot. West europeans are the same. They see themselves as holders of justice, civic rights, values and quality of life and the rest of the world as third world, period.

  9. Please everyone remember that we are all on the same journey but not all in the same place at the same time. The challenge for those who can see what is happening is that not all of us have come into this lifetime to be skilful communicators or activists. Knowing what we do, how we can make a difference and still come from love?
