When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another…
This is how we started. We are surrounded by corporations today control your first cup of coffee to your pillow you put your heads down upon at night. They provide necessary things… They take away necessary things as well. The question is how much power do they have and how sure are you about that.
Power of the Purse is simple idea. Dark money (untraceable donations) controls the political landscape. It affects both sides of the aisle. It had produced a network of twisted loops on who gave what. We needed a clear transparent access to political donations. We control what we spend where and when. Messages in financial strength tend to get noticed. Please consider this.
If you can agree with these few simple problems for the average citizen, help us share the message that we may inspire change.
Dark money has more power than an individual’s votes do.
Corporations have a much more favorable tax rate than the middle class and they kept all their available deductions
Transparency is essential to knowing who is supporting what messages; therefore, all corporate donors identified and special interests requied to disclose whether their funds are originated.
Their influences of the political world will create budget short falls that in most recent budget. These calls for $1.5 trillion cuts to SSI benefits, $1.5 trillion to Medicare benefits, the defunding of veteran programs implemented in spring 2018, the calling for selling off US government assets including the Veterans Administration & US Postal Service to private entities. It enters your benefits you either paid into or gave up you’re life to serve. Its about profits versus fair share. You vs them. Which side are you on?
COMING AUGUST 2018
These are some of the largest political contributors. They do contribute some to both parties, however, usually favor Republican candidates.
Please note some of these are chains or franchises. Local businesses will get a bump out of this. Keep the money locally & keep jobs locally too.
Won’t you stand with us. We are a few hundred now but looking to add right in your neighborhood. No dues. No requests for your time. Unless you would help by sharig this on your favorite…hell we’ll be happy with your list favorite Social media.
Gentle flame dances
Upon unsettled winds
We see the light
It holds our way forward
Shadows will reach us
They tell us its dimming
But still the light glows
It has shown for generations
Twilight always brought tomorrow
Our faith rewarded every time
The flame speaks if we listen
It burns brightest against the dark
These truths are self evident
We are our own masters
But do we stay in the light
Freedom is ours to share
In a land far away, we took apart a great nation. Hundreds of thousands died & were wounded in the hope a nation born to be free could overcome itself. Today, we should look back to see were we came from.
Following the American Civil War, in 1868 the first national observance of a regional traditional event gained ground. Tokens & personal mementos were placed to honor those who lost their lives in battle. Honoring the dead was not an option but the survivors duty to respect ther fallen.
We can not hallow these grounds ad those who came before us gave so much. (paraphrasing here). Whether you have served (thank you) or not, it’s important we remember. Families were shattered to preserve what wer have. I can not, will not participate in the strife of today on this day. We call it Memorial Day on US. Past is forgotten ad it may offend.
Ther Confederate States of America handed is this day (and Department of Justice too). Honor was part of their society, so were other things we don’t wish to carry on.
Thank you to those in harm’s way. We can never repay you for the sacrifices
These are some of the 1032+ identified petroglyphs at V bar V ranch. The historical site is located right off I17 at the southern exit to Sedona. It’s east of the freeway by about 1 mile.
The V bar V was one of many ranches in the area. The family preserved the petroglyphs and donated the land. Red Rocks pass (same pass used around Sedona) can be purchased here. Its a level trail that is about 1500 feet from parking lot to petroglyphs. Morning sun will get you best pictures. And don’t wait till afternoon the hours are limited. They are open Friday thru Monday, 9AM to 3PM
“Clearly, you can see it is a cycle of killing. The arrows are death at their own hands as they bowed and surrendered more and more to the white man.” Jenny looks at her Grandfather.
“Honey, it wasn’t that simple. Half the tribes used us to get rid of their rivals. We took land they weren’t using and set up farms and cities.” Grandpa points at the ring with his cane “This is a bone colored ring with a couple of arrows and blood. Hell, you could make something better with some paste and paper.”
“Grandpa! He is a world renowned artist. They brought this here to commemorate the opening of Indian Hills at Columbus Circle. It’s a real piece of art.” Jenny looks at Grandpa like she has seen a holy relic
“It’s a piece of work, all right! But you’re shopping at a place named for the guy who ended the Indians way of life.” Grandpa looks around at the glass enclosures and brightly colored banners. “Yep! Those Indians sure would like all this spread out here.”

Washed down in syrup
Another liquid fizz
Lingering need for more
The world versus me
They haven’t got a chance!
Teflon hero immune
To cause and others
Right by self-interest
Center attention resides
Places build up within others
Written on banner
Held hands high
Little Big Horn awaits
If you only know
Sharing isn’t caring
Leavening the field
Dragging you down here
Blame and hate
Chains keeping you down
Across all views
Problems involving everything
Excited drawing blood
Hoping pain caused
Damage little concern
One more million
One more collection
Things horridly glorious
Poor only want nothing
All that shines
All that glitters
Attention span withers
Dreams awash vision
Mind dances fancy thoughts
Incredible drowse embraces
My work drifts away
Soul joins the shadows
Flesh dripping taste
Candys last linger clings
Forbidden flavor always best
Touch builds memory
Desire creating scene
A long time ago there were eight capital sins, corrupted souls got lazy and combined aspects of a few. Besides 7 sounds better as deadly sins
Officially it’s Memorial Day in the US. But it was once Decoration Day. The origins of this run deep. The Union troops first celebrated the holiday on May 30, 1868. But their were ones before that.
April 26,1866 was the first offical celebration of the Civil War dead in the south. The gravesodd the Confederate troops were decorated with ribbons and buttons. It was a symbol of homespun touches. The south want left with much. Most of the people in the south eye fast from rich before the war.
There small marking on Anniversary of major battles were common for both Northern and Southern graves. This was a war that no one thought would ever come. It’s a war that started with only a Northern Army and Northern Navy. The South were farmers with little industry. Every able bodied man who wasn’t a plantain owner fought in the South.
The Northern Armies were full of troops that well to do people paid others to take their place. In the North, a grand horse race track called Saratoga opened in the height of the war. The Southern people raced to Richmond to riot for bread. The honor of the fighters for the South was not lost that all but Gettysburg was fought in their homes, their fields, over their crops.
Both sides died in a war to force the country back together. From the beginning when families watch on the side lines outside Alexandria. To the surrender at Appomattox Courthouse. These men lead to a celebration to honor all those lost in battle under Stars and Stripes
