What Goes Around Comes Around

Seffsaid Kindness from Pinterest

Just a reminder from the Internet about the benefits of Paying It Forward and what human kindness can do:

One day a man saw a old lady, stranded on the side of the road, but even in the dim light of day, he could see she needed help. So he pulled up in front of her Mercedes and got out. His Pontiac was still sputtering when he approached her. Even with the smile on his face, she was worried. No one had stopped to help for the last hour or so. Was he going to hurt her? He didn’t look safe; he looked poor and hungry.

He could see that she was frightened, standing out there in the cold. He knew how she felt. It was that chill which only fear can put in you.

He said, ‘I’m here to help you, ma’am. Why don’t you wait in the car where it’s warm? By the way, my name is Bryan Anderson.’

Well, all she had was a flat tire, but for an old lady, that was bad enough. Bryan crawled under the car looking for a place to put the jack, skinning his knuckles a time or two. Soon he was able to change the tire. But he had to get dirty and his hands hurt.

As he was tightening up the lug nuts, she rolled down the window and began to talk to him. She told him that she was from St. Louis and was only just passing through. She couldn’t thank him enough for coming to her aid.

Bryan just smiled as he closed her trunk. The lady asked how much she owed him. Any amount would have been all right with her. She already imagined all the awful things that could have happened had he not stopped.

Bryan never thought twice about being paid.

This was not a job to him. This was helping someone in need, and God knows there were plenty, who had given him a hand in the past. He had lived his whole life that way, and it never occurred to him to act any other way.

He told her that if she really wanted to pay him back, the next time she saw someone who needed help, she could give that person the assistance they needed, and Bryan added, ‘And think of me.’

He waited until she started her car and drove off. It had been a cold and depressing day, but he felt good as he headed for home, disappearing into the twilight.

A few miles down the road the lady saw a small cafe. She went in to grab a bite to eat, and take the chill off before she made the last leg of her trip home. It was a dingy looking restaurant. Outside were two old gas pumps. The whole scene was unfamiliar to her. The waitress came over and brought a clean towel to wipe her wet hair. She had a sweet smile, one that even being on her feet for the whole day couldn’t erase. The lady noticed the waitress was nearly eight months pregnant, but she never let the strain and aches change her attitude. The old lady wondered how someone who had so little could be so giving to a stranger. Then she remembered Bryan.

After the lady finished her meal, she paid with a hundred dollar bill. The waitress quickly went to get change for her hundred dollar bill, but the old lady had slipped right out the door. She was gone by the time the waitress came back. The waitress wondered where the lady could be… Then she noticed something written on the napkin.

There were tears in her eyes when she read what the lady wrote: ‘You don’t owe me anything.. I have been there too. Somebody once helped me out, the way I’m helping you. If you really want to pay me back, here is what you do: Do not let this chain of love end with you.’

Under the napkin were four more $100 bills.

Well, there were tables to clear, sugar bowls to fill, and people to serve, but the waitress made it through another day.. That night when she got home from work and climbed into bed, she was thinking about the money and what the lady had written. How could the lady have known how much she and her husband needed it? With the baby due next month, it was going to be hard….

She knew how worried her husband was, and as he lay sleeping next to her, she gave him a soft kiss and whispered soft and low, ‘Everything’s going to be all right. I love you, Bryan Anderson.’

There is an old saying ‘What goes around comes around.’ Today I sent you this story, and I’m asking you to pass it on. Let this light shine.

Good friends are like stars….You don’t always see them, but you know they are always there.

A War Against the West – published on 9-11-2001 by Israeli Institute IASPS

A War Against the West – published on 9-11-2001 by Israeli Institute IASPS article from The Vatic Project Blogspot.

Vatic Note: Its amazing how fast the head of IASPS (The Israeli Institute for Advanced Strategic and Political Studies) got this out on the day of the attack on 9-11. We did not even know at this point who had done the attack. So how did they know? Remember, Israeli’s inside the twin towers were warned to leave. So, this added to those other facts, shows they not only knew but were intimately involved in the full scope of the treasonous murder of American civilians. Hmmmm, and now with all the evidence that Mossad was in part a player in the 9-11 false flag along with our treasonous insiders, this document truly highlights the intent of that event and what they expected to gain from it. No wonder those mossad agents were celebrating on top of that van as they filmed the entire event. Look at how IASPS interpreted what they had done and blamed on the muslims. Is it clever? yes, but arrogance carries its own price. Its obvious this was all prepared before anyone ever knew who had done 9-11 until that evening and not before.

This pitting of one religion against another is clearly in the protocols and division and hate and fear being used to create their perfect storm for the new WW III in which the bankers own most of the military industrial complex companies that will profit from it and increase their access to ownership of oil fields at the same time. Sometimes its good to look back and see what we didn’t see that day and this is one of them. It simply puts the icing on the cake as to who were the major players in this deadly game for 3,000 of our unarmed civilians who had to choose horrible deaths, either fire or jumping. I never forgot watching that live and the horror those people had to go through to “choose” how to die, not whether they would die, but how. I won’t ever forgive israel for doing that to our people.

War Against the West
by Robert J. Loewenberg, President, IASPS
September 11, 2001

Today’s sensational attacks on the U. S., certainly by Muslims who were likely Arabs, are being described as “terrorist” acts by “madmen” for example by Chris Patton, EU. Others seeking an academic perspective along the lines of Sam Huntington, see the attacks as a new bi-polar division between Muslims and Western states and culture.

We Can Handle the Truth – Stop Trying to Hide the Truth from Us

We Can Handle the Truth – Stop Trying to Hide the Truth from Us from Information Clearing House:

The Peace Movement Should Stand With Military Whistleblower Bradley Manning

By Kevin Zeese

July 22, 2010 “Information Clearing House” — The peace movement needs to stand with Bradley Manning and Wikileaks in their efforts to let Americans see the truth about what the military is doing in our name. We can handle the truth! Indeed, we need to hear the truth, not propaganda about how great the U.S. military is performing, in order to be responsible citizens.

The news from Afghanistan and Iraq is not good, but Americans are not even told all the news – especially when it includes abuses, even war crimes, committed by the U.S. military. The U.S. is supposed to have civilian control of the military, as President Obama recently demonstrated when he fired General McChrystal, but the people are supposed to be ultimately in charge in a representative democracy. We need to know the truth in order to do our job as citizens and hold elected officials responsible.

Those who oppose war and militarism need to stand with Bradley Manning, the 22-year old Army private, who believed he saw war crimes being committed by the U.S. military and shared the information so the American public could know what the armed forces were doing. The most famous leak from Manning was the “Collateral Murder” video shared on the website. The video he reportedly leaked showed an Apache Helicopter attack by the U.S. military killing a dozen civilians and wounding two children.

Dying 5-Year-Old Boy Wants Christmas Cards

Noah Biorkman is a 5-year-old boy who is losing his 2 1/2 year battle with Neuroblastoma Cancer. Noah loves Christmas cards but he won’t live to see Christmas this year.

In February 2007 Noah was diagnosed with Stage IV Neuroblastoma Cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, Neuroblatoma Cancer is a form of cancer that starts in certain types of very primitive developing nerve cells found in an embryo or fetus. This type of cancer occurs in infants and young children and is rarely found in children that are older than 10 years.

Noah went into remission in August 2007 but relapsed in September 2008. Despite going through six different trials, the cancer has continued to spread.

The Biorkman family is celebrating Christmas this weekend. Diana Harrison Biorkman, Noah’s mother, has appealed for Christmas cards for her son. There are two addresses you can send them to.

Why we Need to Know the Truth About 9/11

Eight years after the attacks of 9/11, the ongoing Governmental secrecy surrounding the events of that fateful day is becoming impossible to maintain — the official 9/11 fairy tale has continuously unraveled — and the more the truth is revealed, the more it becomes evident that we need an honest investigation into the events of that day to reveal the truth of what happened and who was actually responsible for it.

As the truth has unraveled, once reputable entities have ignorantly tried to disguise the truth by claiming to debunk ‘conspiracy theories.’ More questions have been raised as a result of the ignorance and intentional deception of these ‘debunkers.’ People seeking the truth are not ‘conspiracy theorists.’ People seeking the truth want answers as to why the Government was complicit in allowing thousands of innocent people to die that day. They want to know why the unconstitutional ‘legislation’ is still destroying millions of lives and they want the actual perpetrators of those crimes held responsible for their crimes.

On 9/11, America was betrayed by a Treasonous government intent on trying to find a way to advance their deceptive criminal agenda. Try as they may, it’s becoming impossible to keep the truth of that day hidden.

The attacks of September 11, 2001 dramatically altered the course of freedom and Democracy. The attacks were used by an egregiously appointed criminal Presidential administration as an excuse to consistently terrorize an unsuspecting American public while keeping them in a constant state of fear.

A Visitor From The Past

Since it’s time for a reminder, this is a post from

A Visitor From The Past

For those who have not seen this classic poem by Thelen Paulk…

I had a dream the other night, I didn’t understand.
A figure walking through the mist, with flintlock in his hand.
His clothes were torn and dirty, as he stood there by my bed.
He took off his three-cornered hat, and speaking low, he said:

“We fought a revolution, to secure our liberty.
We wrote the Constitution, as a shield from tyranny.
For future generations, this legacy we gave.
In this, the land of the free and home of the brave.”

“The freedom we secured for you, we hoped you’d always keep.
But tyrants labored endlessly while your parents were asleep.
Your freedom gone, your courage lost, you’re no more than a slave. In this, the land of the free and home of the brave.”

Dying 4-Year-Old Wants Cards For Christmas

Hannah Garman is a 4-year-old who was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme, a rare, incurable brain cancer in October. She was given about 12 weeks to live. Her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was pregnant with Hannah. Doctors didn’t think her mother would survive the pregnancy without being treated so they took a chance and gave her chemo. She survived and gave birth to Hannah.

Hannah lost her mother to breast cancer when she was only 3.

When Hannah was asked what she wanted for Christmas she replied that she wanted to see how many Christmas cards she could get.

Hannah has lost most of her motor skills and is confined to bed. One of the few things she can do is open and play with the cards. Her room is full of them.

Hannah has an older brother and sister. Hannah’s father and her grandparents are caring for her.

One of the three addresses to send cards to Hannah is below:

Hannah Garman
259 North Reading Rd.
Ephrata, Pa. 17522

You can visit Hannah’s Caring Bridge page to see pictures of her and to get more information.

Time For A Closer Look At 9/11

Not that I’m a conspiracy theorist, because I’m not, but there are too many unanswered questions about the attacks of 9/11 that have led to the problems Americans are facing today — destruction of Constitutional Rights, Privacy and Freedom — bourne by a delusional presidential administration hell-bent on starting a war for personal and political profit and gains.

Allowing the government to investigate itself has proven to be the usual cluster you-know-what resulting in bushels of lies, misinformation and horse crap being fed to the public while a terroristic presidential administration continues to operate in secret with no oversight and corrupt incompetent leadership.

As with a lot of the other lies told to the public — while at the same time using political fear tactics to scare them and keep them obedient — by this administration, the “official” story of 9/11 has started to come unraveled.

Given the track record of this administration, it appears reasonable that outside investigations would be warranted. Especially since the federal courts keep making sure a lot of important information remains covered up.

An Ode to Common Sense

From the sad but true department. I couldn’t have said it better myself.  =)

The passing of our dear friend: “COMMON SENSE”
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.

He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:

  • Knowing when to come in out of the rain;
  • Why the early bird gets the worm;
  • Life isn’t always fair;
  • and maybe it was my fault.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).
