|.. or Rarámuri, as they call themselves. They are an Amerindian tribe of Mexico that has managed to avoid virtually every problem that has plagued we Indians north of the border. Their cancer, diabetes and suicide rates are at or near zero. Their longevity has their 50 year olds running marathons and their 80 year olds going on 40 mile hikes. Their communities exhibit virtually no crime, with theft, murder and rape nearly nonexistent. There are no police, no government of any kind and they have little to no use for money. Their economy is based on doing one another favors and trading the occasional barrel of corn beer (the production and consumption of which occupies about a third of their lives.) One of their favorite pass times is going on 200+ mile runs without stopping. They still speak their native language and practice their tribal ways. They make their living as they always have, growing corn, beans and squash and raising live stock.|
|From the perspective of their cash income and material wealth, they are likely among the poorest people in the world. But looking deeper, they appear to be the happiest, longest living, healthiest people on earth who have solved virtually every societal and health problem that plagues the rest of the modern world. They largely avoid the outside world. No census taker has been able to find enough them to count them, though their estimated population is between 50,000 and 70,000. No federal department of the Mexican government concerns itself with taking care of them. There is no BIA to impose a government upon them. No Indian Health, no casinos to give them jobs. No welfare, no social services, no government support of any kind. Rather than destroying them, alcohol is an important part of their indigenous culture.|
|Maybe we American Indians and Alaska Natives have something to learn from them. They have succeeded in virtually every category in which we have failed. They, too, have faced enslavement, murder, theft of their lands, attempted assimilation, and disease. Yet they prosper.
OKAY, so once again we have reached the “time of the year”. The Time this country loves to remind us of ‘what happened’. The Time “Terrorist Threats” rise and the Time people show their differences.
I posted on a friends FB entry … she wrote how this song made her cry because it was about 9/11 and then all her other friends responded with the same thing….
Well… being the rebel I am, and using my right as an American Citizen, using my FREEDOM OF SPEECH, I wrote on there how I think it’s time to quit reminding us all of that day. It’s been ten years, they don’t need to start 2 weeks prior to September 11th , reminding us what happend. WE ALL KNOW WHAT HAPPENED. Now, how we all view this day in history is a different story. How do I see it? Let me tell you of the ways, since my reply was deleted.
The ATTACKS were an inside Job. The proof is everywhere. Watch Zeitgeist, it’s all over the internet. I’ve also watched plenty of other shows and reports and discussions on the very same subject. And no matter how politicians love to twist and turn your, their, our brains, it still doesn’t proof anything.
Bush was the first president in history (at least my history) that was questioned on his election (BOTH TIMES). It never took until the next morning, nor the next week to determine if all the votes counted up right.
It’s also very obvious that Bush jr. was only in for the Revenge that Bush sr. couldn’t cheat his way towards. In NO TIME of his time as President, Bush Jr. declared war on a Nation which was always known to be our so called “enemy”. But how come the bush family was also close friends with the Husseins as well as the Bin Ladins. Now seriously! Only a BLIND person would believe the Fucking Hogwash they fed you all after these “attacks”. Do we forget the fact that over and over and over it was also mentioned that WE, THE UNITED STATES trained these so called terrorists in TERRORISM as well as supplied the WEAPONS to teach them how to use them the “Right” way?
Hell, when they ask me where I was when the attacks happened I can tell you exactly where I was. At home. Watching TV. I had just gotten up from taking my second snooze after my kids had gone off to school. When I heard of these news, I called a good friend of mine, whom was busy moving that day. He told me that they were also sitting watching it.
My believe in Mankind as well as my believe in fairness was totally destroyed that day. I stopped picking up my phone as well as opening my door. I felt dirty, wrong to be a human. Buying into this deceit, this mass-murder this country i call my home committed. It also opened my eyes to the fact that ALL governments are corrupt.
That day I realized that dying will only be a relieve to my suffering. I am ASHAMED to be part of this species, in every way. I for one cannot wait to die.
That day I realized that there is another side. That the dead do exist and try to communicate with us. I guess there was one wonderful thing that came out of all of this. I turned towards Spirituality and I found peace within. It made me look towards death in a very “chill” way. It made me unafraid of death and what is to follow. Do I really know if it’s the truth? Nah, not really. It could only be an escape to whatever mental problem I have but I love to believe that I am right.
I say, get over it…. Look at some of the other things that happened that year? Those attacks were NOT the middle of the universe… Some people in this wide world don’t even KNOW about it, nor care.

Peace Out! (oh wait, peace doesn’t exist anymore! Even amongst friends we turn into enemies on this subject!) But you don’t know about the many women that have been raped in Africa just to destroy one “Breed”, having these women being disowned by their families, friends, villages….killing their own infants to hope their way back into acceptance.
You don’t know about the many children, parentless, no families (that claims them), no hope, running the streets of many cities in this world.
You don’t know, nor care about the young children being sold to factories around the world so their families can eat, being forced into slavery, often beat to death for not pulling their part, being forced to sleep on cots that are their beds, as well as their workstations, stacked three high at times.
Do you care about the FAT SLIMY MONEY LOADED PERVS taking trips to Asian Countries, having sex with girls younger than your own children?
DO YOU? Do you realize there isn’t JUST you, your once a year grief (which you are reminded of a month ahead of time to make sure it even sinks in by the time “it” rolls around?)? D-O Y-O-U?
I was thinking about this today, almost everything someone does, says or feels can be expressed with a song. Not necessarily the exact meaning OF the song, but the words IN the song.
Let me give you a few examples:
Someone drops a cup of coffee in front of me and says: “Oh No” … this song might come to mind:
Or I see a parent yell at their kid for something really stupid, this comes to mind:
…. it’s not hard to have a tune stuck in your head ANY time ANY situation of your life….
