I went through some posts. There are a lot of questions. One I feel I have to address which was the question of why I supported Obama. I did so because he was the lesser of two evils. I actually voted for Hillary Clinton in the first primary. I was worried about him being to weak a personality for the job. But I know if Obama hadn’t won we would be in a HORRIBLE DEPRESSION unlike anything people have seen since Germany’s depression that led up to the rise of the Nazi party.
I had hoped he would be more powerful in his leadership, but privately I did warn those who voted for him I wasn’t sure he could hold up to all the pressure. I think he is a good person and wants to do what’s right – this is partially his problem and also his greatest asset – the thing that makes people love him. I also think he is very rational which unfortunately is a problem right now. He doesn’t seem to know how to fight the irrational fringe right groups that are holding this nation hostage and he doesn’t seem to have the gumption to stand up to the many corporate interests and plutocrats that a ball cracker like Hillary would have.
I feel that he is a truly good man and because of this is blind to the darker nature of his enemies. Where as Hillary is a realist – she knows how down and dirty it can get and she’ll rip the head off any snake that tries to unseat her. This makes her look mean and menacing and a bit intimidating, even unappealing. And this is the reason she lost to Obama. He appealed to the left because he represented everything we wanted to be true – no matter how ridiculous it may have been in terms of implementation – the idea that all people should be treated with dignity and have health care like every other industrialized nation, etc. Those are the things people on the left really love because their religion is humanism.
Ironically the left exhibit the traits that Christ taught much more than those on the right who right pooh-pooh these Christian ideals as being too unrealistic or not their personal problem. But the truth is when one of us suffers we all suffer. The more poverty there is – the more crime there is and so on. Supporting others with our tax dollars is a better use of it than invading countries for their oil. And I think that is the main difference between the left and right. The right wants an empire in which the US is untouchable – at the expense of its own citizens. Where every man is out for himself and no one gets ahead unless they are lucky enough to be born into power and privilege.
The left wants to stay out of everyone’s business and take care of people who are needy and if we can take care of people in other countries – great lets help when we can. Obama spoke to that fundamental hope in us humanitarians, but alas, as all modern presidents have done so far he has been a disappointment mostly because I believe the system itself has been shown for what it is – a corroded, corrupted mess that needs to be cleaned up. That job requires someone with tremendous personal strength and no fear. Those people are not easy to come by.
The other issue I wanted to address was the notion that I think all is doomed. I personally do not feel this way. I do feel there is always hope. Zoma the entity I channel is not usually so negative, but there is something I can feel coming down the pike that is big, bad and ugly and I believe Zoma is trying to warn us about it.
However with every death there is a rebirth and our empire has gotten to a place of being stretched too thin and is in peril. That does not mean that it is the end of all life on earth – it does mean major changes we will have to adapt to. I think many of us are in the process of figuring out how to adapt to these things right now. The one thing that is out of our hands is the state of our world and that state is not healthy. There are scientists working on radical things right now (this line of thinking was started about a decade ago – I am currently reading a book about it called Hacking the Planet) in which we proactively change the earth basically through terra forming experiments to see if we can keep the polar ice caps from melting anymore and stop the ozone from thinning.
I have enormous faith in the ingenuity and brilliance of human beings as individuals working together. My fear right now is we are being isolated. We are talking virtually, many people are so involved in this virtual world that I’ve seen them almost get hit by cars because they are too busy texting to notice where they actually are walking. While we are now more connected than ever we are also less so.
We have truly entered the Aquarian age. These new issues are very Aquarian in nature. Aquarius rules friendships, hopes and wishes. The web provides (many of us) with a safe haven to project whatever we want onto people we don’t really know. I think this can be good for some and create other social issues which we are now beginning to see. For example I heard one mother complain that her daughter had a sleepover party and all the girls brought their cell phones so none of the kids talked to each other. The girl was very distraught and upset that her party wasn’t going well. The mother asked someone for advice and they said you have to make a rule that the cell phones are put into a basket when they come into the party and if they need to call their parents they can do so from a land line. Now, that’s kind of the negative side effect of the feeling of connection because it’s a perfect example of how people are all around us who we don’t talk to – real neighbors, real potential friends at local stores but instead we have “facebook” friends who we may never meet – who can’t really be there for us if we get sick or need someone to help us move, etc.
Technology is ultimately what we make of it. I’m sure we are in phase that is a lot like the industrial revolution of the last turn of the century. That was a big mess for a long time until it was regulated. The web has opened up so much and given us a lot, but it has also taken away just as much (killed many sacred cows – the record industry, the publishing industry, film and TV are starting to see the effects and the list goes on.) People are figuring out ways to monetize this new system of commerce. Or greatest hope for a new economy rests with young people. I believe it is actually part of their spiritual gift – many of these kids were born during the 1980s and 1990s when Uranus was conjunct Neptune in Capricorn and sextiling Pluto. They understand big structures, and how to revise old failing systems. They are already changing things for the better.
I do however see two roads here – as I always have – one that is an evolution of our race and a new dawn of remarkable scientific achievement. The other is all the turmoil it will take to get us to the other side. But you are right in that hope is always the thing we must have – if you lose that you lose everything and there is always hope and goodness just as we are all part of God and a plan much bigger than our individual lives.

Thanks for your insights on Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. something tells me there is a bigger issue with the far right extremists. They would have done the exact same tactic by blocking votes no matter who would be in the White House. I, like you voted for Hillary, and was disappointed when she lost the primary, but my husband said, she can be incredibly divisive and easily provokes. hhmm, I think the GOP or anyone conservative is easily angered and incites crisis after crisis. The GOP’s are addicted to pain and drama.
the thing is, you need someone to work on both sides of the aisle, and I believe Obama has done as far as he can go. he usually is for the most part on the side of the Republicans, but they hate him so much, the GOP have allowed themselves to get caught up with the ugly hatred stemming from the far right. Tea party activists are controlled, groomed by the Koch Brothers, and the big Tobacco industry. They’re all about anti government period. have you watched the two part film Atlas Shrugged? you might watch it sometime as it can reveal the ultimate goal of the billionaires sights are to do whatever they want , whenever they want, and without regulations. But, they want to control the middle class and the poor/disabled for their own gain. and that is profit through privatization.
Ultimately, Denise, this war is about anti government anything to do with Federal Government. it’s the far right having their very own revolution…. anyone who is not ai Republican sitting in the White House, they will oppose again and again. Look at Bill Clinton, and they even went as far to impeached him. That is the name of the game with the GOP politicians. They’re ugly and they’re mean and will do whatever it takes to create turmoil to be used as a distraction.
There focus is on social issues, not jobs or the economy.
There number one goal is to overturn Roe vs Wade state by state. It’s the far rights dream to have all abortions be illegal. A strange twisted fairy tale the Tea party have promoted a fascist agenda. There activists are just idiotic and evil.
Obama does have it much worse than Bill Clinton did, and chances are, it will be the same BS if Hillary wins the WH 2016.
Hi Marie, I agree with mostly all of what you said. We live in a very harsh divisive reality.. You’re right even if Hillary were to win. It would be the same old crap. Maybe even more hatred spewed…I believe that we can change. But we must tackle all aspects that afflict the human condition like poverty, crime, disease etc. And to me that means investigating very deeply and trying to find the solutions. But that seems to be foreign nowadays.
This is why I wrote previously on here that I accept whatever happens. I’m not sure what we can do except try to recover.
I hope you’ll be able to play this powerful you tube video filmed back in 2006 with Bradley Whitford and Pres Obama film’s narrative is on the Far Right extremists radical agenda to outstrip all Federal laws. it’s about an hour long, and I found it to be informative and fascinating film.
I also was a Hillary supporter, because I knew the horrible truth of what Republicans have wrought, beginning with Reagan, Bush I and culminating in the tragic consequences of a corrupted electoral process that enabled Bush Jr. to steal an election and proceed to smash the last remnants of our Democracy under his foot. I knew Hillary was strong enough to face the truth and deal with these people better than the charismatic Barack Obama. I liked them both, but I really felt it was time for a woman to be elected and was disappointed when she lost.
I have tried, Denise, to the point of exhaustion to explain, educated, get people to see that they are being duped by Republicans. It’s so easy to look up their records (for me, anyway) and come to this conclusion independently if you don’t listen to those with an agenda, like Fox News, Koch Brothers backed “think tanks”, our corrupted media. History is there to see, but now because we have gotten rid of the Fairness Doctrine and don’t seem to have a law on the books for the media to show integrity and sound judgment by having to LEGALLY be held accountable for what they tell the public….we have an ignorant public that blames the government and cannot distinguish truth from fact, enemy from friend and literally vote against their own interests. I have personally failed and continue to fail everyday in my attempts to educate, but since I am unemployed….this is what I do, or at least try to do.
Thank you very much for your insights. I can imagine how frustrating it must be to “see” these things, because I saw/knew the destruction coming with the stolen 2000 election, but felt very much alone because everybody else seemed to be oblivious of this.
I agree with Marie on the GOP 100%. It is obvious to all who can see.
Blessings and Light,
Gosh, I feel like I’m communicating my thoughts to a wall. I don’t think Denise has ever answered me. Not trying to stir anything up, but it would be nice to be acknowledged from time to time. I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels a bit ignored.
I’m sorry I don’t know what you wanted an answer to. I’ve been off blog for a while because my kid got really sick. I’m also working as well. Lot’s going on. Yes, to Amanda Knox being innocent. ABSOLUTELY. I do not believe and never did get the intuition she was guilty in any way except that she was extremely naive and this was her downfall.
aah, I was wondering if you missed my question(s). it was the very first one posted. I was asking if you feel the GOP party would split in two parties. something like that… Teaparty vs Republicans.
as for Amanda Knox, I was not too concerned about her , I don’t know why, I just think their investigation was sloppy and tainted to some degree. I think she will be found innocent (again). Italians can be too passionate at times they tend to overlook simple answers or logic. lol I mean look at their last PM election. My husband says they are Italians what do you expect?
I hope your kid will get better, I think she will. lots of prayers to her and your family.
I’ll answer you! Lots of other people are enjoying your comments. (I strongly suspect that Denise is fully occupied looking after her sick daughter at the moment.) Unlike most control-freak bloggers, at least she doesn’t vet the comments before posting them.
Best wishes from Simon
oh dear, I’m sorry Simon, I know I’ve lost my patience… I’m not the best with patience, really. I do have a lot on my plate, and some days it’s just becomes too much. again, I’m sorry for imploding. warmly..
No problem at all. I hope that things will improve for you soon. (As a matter of fact I don’t have much patience myself!)
Best wishes from Simon
What I should have said is that I hope your plate becomes lighter and lighter until it eventually floats over the horizon like a frisbee.
Best wishes from Simon
Thank you Simon, You’re very kind… wishing you the best too, Marie
Obama is not a good man just because he’s a Democrat. How could you be so blind to his negative energy? It oozes from him. I have been doing Reiki for years and I knew years ago that Obama was bad energy. He is not a lightworker. All these scandals going on right now absolutely do trace back to Obama. He is a New World Order stooge and pawn of Goldman Sachs and the big banks. That you’d make him out to be good while insinuating all Republicans are evil is because you’ve bought into the false right/left paradigm. Some Democrats are good, and some Republicans are good. Most establishment Democrats and Republicans are bad, however. It’s both parties that are controlled by big money.
You and the other commenters above are totally misinformed about the nature of people who are libertarians and/or in the Tea Party. You write “The left wants to stay out of everyone’s business and take care of people who are needy and if we can take care of people in other countries – great lets help when we can.” Actually, libertarians feel that way. We just don’t think the government should be the vehicle – people can do this themselves WITHOUT the central state.
Furthermore, the left absolutely wants to be in people’s business by taking money by force through coercive taxation and then spending it through the government monopoly rather than letting people choose what charities they want to support through voluntary donations. It’s an important distinction that perhaps you don’t understand yet, but look up the concept of “voluntaryism” and maybe you’ll get it.
I wonder who taught you Reiki? what is your view on the Teaparty today being what you wrote was several months ago. The Tea party are the most hateful spiteful group of people who call themselves Christians are Christians in name only.
Obama is not perfect, but certainly better than the Republicans that actually do not care about anyone but their corporate masters that want to control this country according to their narrative which would equate to Capitalist Russia.
The Tea party masquerading as Libertarians are frauds.
I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s a very easy on the eyes which
makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often.
Did you hire out a designer to create your theme? Outstanding work!
