When I entered college in the fall of 1965, I didn’t know anything about how our U.S. Congress worked. I didn’t understand the ramifications of entrenched corruption, good old boy clubs and how corporations greased the palms of our elected officials to overlook our laws or pass what they wanted.
In my senior year, my mother struggled to balance the check book and raise our family. She worked at a church where the priests sexually harassed her. She came home in tears at times. I lack any clue as to how she survived all those years being single. In fact, she remained single the rest of her life.
With all of that, my brother Rex and I found ourselves being picked on, beat up and hassled by the top four bullies of the school. As you can imagine, at 6’2 ½” and 180 pounds, I wasn’t a pip-squeak anymore. I started lifting weights with Charles Atlas instruction.
In our 120-year-old farm house, I grew up with four siblings. My younger years saw me using an outhouse until age seven. We took baths in a tub until I turned seven when we finally installed a toilet and shower. Wow, hot water, a sink in the kitchen and a Maytag stove that still works today.
The last time I visited my mother before she passed away, I walked into her room with my wife, and sat for 30 minutes telling my mom how much I appreciated her being a super mother during my childhood. I thanked her for a litany of events that stood out in my mind. I covered everything from birthdays to sporting events to camping to helping take my first bicycle ride.
What have my wife and I done to save and preserve our health? We eat all natural, non-GMO, certified organic fruits, vegetables and food products. We READ the contents of everything we buy. We shop at Natural Grocers. We used to shop at Whole Foods...
Since I’ve bicycled across America 15 times and across six continents in the past 44 years, I witnessed the land being trashed at 12 miles per hour. Farmers toss their tractors, combines and farm equipment into fields to rot and rust for the next 10 million years. I’ve seen motor homes and trailers abandoned all over the USA.
MS-13 gangs thrive with their drug distribution networks because your Senators and House member fail to do anything to secure the borders. Result: drug addiction deaths accelerate dramatically annually.
Once you lose your core identity as a country; your country cannot survive. And, you can’t get your successful ethos back. A country like India lurches into each day as a mass of overpopulated, illiterate, unhealthy, conflicted citizens who don’t know their identity, what culture or where they stand.
We, the American people, pay our House and Senate members huge salaries to make our country work. Starting pay runs $174,000.00 for a bartender voted into the House of Representatives with virtually no qualifications, whatsoever. We pay an anti-American Somalian refugee voted into the House, with no qualifications, a whopping $174,000.00 to disparage our country
This summer, on my 40-state journey around the United States, I witnessed women, men and teens texting by the thousands. They texted racing down the highway, in gridlock traffic, and at stop lights. I saw a school bus driver texting driving down the road, I-70 in Denver, Colorado.
Dear Fellow American: our Congress remains on schedule to import another 110 million minorities from over 100 third world countries. If they succeed within the next 30 years, do you think our country, and/or your children stand a chance at survival?
So, as you can see, technology may have given us a washer-dryer, kitchen stove and air conditioning—but today, it’s giving us more consequences than anything that ever popped out of Pandora’s Box.
Every time I see a bumper sticker reading, “Support Our Troops”, I want to puke. After 18 years fighting two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, what do we have to show for it? Answer: nothing but human misery!
We desperately need a national conversation on what kind of a civilization we expect to bequeath to our children. If we keep on this path, it will be an unbreathable nightmare of too many cars, smokestacks and carbon exhaust for anyone to breathe.
If we keep electing the same old, entrenched and corrupt politicians, we face monumental continued malfeasance in a government that refuses to solve our country’s myriad problems and move forward. We MUST change course.
Let’s publish this knowledge in every media center in America. Let’s deal with our future before it becomes our ugly present. In fact, by reading this commentary, what kind of a world would you like to hand over to your kids? Because if you fail to act, fail to speak up—your kids face an extremely unpleasant “Tragedy of the Commons” in their future.
During my 40-state bike journey around America this summer, I witnessed, up close and personal, exactly what’s happening to our country. More than 90 percent of Americans don’t possess a clue as to what’s happening to them and the rest of us, and our major cities. Most of our big cities, welfare magnets, no longer can be called “American cities” because immigrants dominate them.
America cannot continue to exist with endless and exponential immigration growth. Everything faces limits: Number of people in a pool. Number of people on a dance floor. Number of people in restaurant. Number of people on an airplane
Judges do nothing to sustain the laws already on the books: US Code 8, Section 1324, makes it a crime to employ, house or transport an illegal alien living within the USA. Fines: $2,000.00 per illegal hired and up to 5 years in prison. The American Civil Liberties Union thwarts our laws at every juncture. They must be the most Un-American organization operating in the United States.
As you can see, Brenda Walker walks the walk and sees what she sees in California, which might be deemed our latest third world country with its 11,000 homeless. But that’s combined with 60,000 homeless in Los Angeles, 6,000 homeless in Seattle and 10,000 homeless in my city of Denver, Colorado.
In Minneapolis, Minnesota, 55 percent of the Somali immigrants preferred Sharia Law over American law. In fact, they de facto practice it. Problem: Sharia Law runs counter to U.S. Constitutional Law. No women’s rights, animal rights, no free speech, no free choice of dress, no choice of religion, etc.
I saw chemical-spewing airplanes spraying poisons across thousands of acres of crops. I saw tractors spraying poisons upon endless fields of the foods we eat. I saw signs on corn fields showing the Genetically Modified Organism filled with artificial DNA at the hands of blind, stupid and greedy crop scientists—from Monsanto and Bayer.
As I traveled throughout 40 states of America this summer, and over 20 of her major cities, the American people lack any clue as to the rapid transformation of this country into a polyglot of cultures...
I once knew a friend who carried grudges against those who wronged him. He piled them into a potato sack that he slung over his shoulder everyday when he traveled to work. When I saw him for lunch one day, he carried on with new additions to his “potato sack full of grudges.”
Struggling author and single mom J.K. Rowling lived off welfare when she began writing the first "Harry Potter" book. She now commands the title of the richest working woman in the United Kingdom.
From that single event in my life, I have never complained once since 1984. I take each day as a gift. I love each second on my touring bike, road bike and mountain bike. I promised myself to live a life worth remembering.
You will find the tyranny of resistance fades as you walk or gallop toward your happiness in work, play and friends. You won’t wish for what you see in the poster on your cubicle wall, you will live it for real.
The energy of life on this planet strives to organize into relationships. As with water, you watch it thrive in many forms such as snow, rain, ice and vapor. It gathers as clouds in the sky, which eventually, falls as rain or snow.
Thus, peace and harmony thrive among Bhutan’s citizens. No murders, no headaches, no prescription drugs, no alcoholism, no gridlock, no air pollution, no slums and no social unrest.
Thirdly, in all discouragements, you must release the “feelings” and embrace your heart. Whether you can do this by talking to a friend or loved one, in the end, you must come to terms with yourself and love yourself.
For parents willing to plant vibrant seeds in the gardens of their children’s minds, they must leave the Smart phone on the kitchen table. Play with their children at the park. Laugh while pushing them ever higher on the swing or race them down the slides or spin on the merry-go-round.
Everyone smiled while you spoke your answer. In reality, most people don’t possess an inkling about their life-purpose. Many lose any chance of pursuing their dreams because they get caught up in life by getting married, raising children and working a job.
It is your willingness to struggle through it, to present yourself at the doorstep of Nature or in front of a canvas or mountain peak. You might be a writer struggling with a plot or character. Adventure advances as you express it.
Exercise daily to blow off excess energy in the body to release your mind to express itself. Eat healthy foods to maintain a lean frame. That, in turn, allows you emotional balance that originates with your relationship with friends, families and co-workers.
The creative dynamo thrives in you by your receptivity. As a writer, I look for new ideas daily. Above my computer on the corkboard for the past 40 years, a small card reads: “The Idea Fairy may strike at any time—so be alert and write her idea down, so she will feel appreciated and come back often.”
Much of life in every civilization revolves around money, power and status. Some youngsters enjoy instant success from their parents while others begin in poverty. Everyone learns the ways of the world by the time they reach 18.
In order to become a person who relishes daily living, you enjoy the choice to create a “Positive” mindset. You may feed the “animal” in your mind with your highest and best thoughts. You may be an introvert or an extrovert. By changing your thinking, you brighten and enliven every cell in your body. By changing your thoughts to positive energy, you create a positive outcome.
Second, harness your youthful exuberance not only in your teen years, but choose to maintain your energies throughout your entire life. It’s been said, “Life deals you high and low cards, but you play with the hand you’re dealt. You can bluff your way through or you can play it straight. Either way, you win or lose on your chosen merits, talents, skills, education and actions.
First, change your view of yourself. Are you a victim or a product or a tragedy? You decide. You choose your relationship with any of your challenges or situations. In the end, the universe doesn’t bequeath you a positive or negative thought pattern. You choose it and you live it. Either way, you evolve your life by your choices. If you run from something, it consumes you. When you face it, you devour it.
Most Americans enjoy two-week vacations with scant time to climb Mt. Everest or raft the Amazon. Others feel so locked into their jobs that nothing or no one can change their fate.
In my own hiking times through the woods in acceptance of solitude, I feel the “sweet spot” of temperature playing upon my skin. I feel the essence of light shining through my eyes. I accept my quiet essence pulsing into the energies of life. Once I reconnect with every blood cell charging through my body, I churn with delight.
Your friendships may revolve around a beer, wine or dancing. You might go for a walk, a bicycle ride or the movies. You might backpack, ski or raft a river. You share moments of danger, serenity or wonder at a sunset. During those times, you develop feelings through laughter, stories and shared opinions on an array of topics.
To sit around a campfire with a stick while you poke the glowing embers before you, may be one of the most tangible of all visible mysteries of the universe. You stare into pulsing energy that feeds your soul. Warmth comforts your sense of belonging to the wilderness.
If you work in a school, company, fast food joint, office or any other organization that forces you into contact with other people—you must deal with one or two characters that drive you nuts. They may be arrogant, rude, aggressive or impudent.
I read aloud this second secret to happiness daily. I engage the energy of London’s wisdom for squeezing every second out of every day. That may mean contemplative thought and grateful moments versus quickening intensity. I understand that each moment of living constitutes a marvelous endowment.
From 50, they face the last third of their lives with a sense of a downhill slide. Most never lived any “great” moments or vanquished any dragons let alone navigated a great sailing ship called the Black Pearl like Captain Jack Sparrow. None took off through space like the Next Generation on the Starship Enterprise.
“The path to your destiny has “forks in road” that require the imperfect ability to discern the difference between opportunity and pitfalls,” he said. “You will make mistakes in judgment. You will fail often. But remember to make those failures into stepping-stones toward your ultimate success. Never get down on yourself. None of it comes easy, but it gets easier as you travel the path with a good attitude, application by work and your ingenuity.
Do you want your children to face the ominous ecological, sociological and cultural clashes they will encounter with an added 50 million legal immigrants? Do you want your kids to face 100 different languages in your schools? In Denver, my city, we must contend with 173 different languages in our classrooms. Do you want to pay ever-increasing amounts of your taxes toward housing...
