Standing Rock

Standing Rock consisted of 3 or more camps. The camps are called Oceti, Rosebud and Sacred Stone and the one that Oceti is moving to called Black Hoop, at this time. OK, now that we know that, what is Standing Rock? A large group of Native American people put their foot down and said no more. No more stealing land, no more stealing resources on that land and no more killing the land. They came to the conclusion, as best I can see, to say “we are not going to fight you but we will stop you from destroying our land by standing in your way and not letting you run an oil line through our land and we will do this by praying about it and for you”.

When they said “no more”, they called for support and got probably one of the largest group of US Military veterans to show up in history. About twice as many as they expected and could support. This did make for a lot of problems but it got the worlds attention. What people are unaware of is that even though this started out as fighting the crude oil pipelines, a lot of oil based products are still being used like nylon, plastic water bottles and Styrofoam. I question peoples motives when I hear them say things like “Oil based products will always be needed” or they would rather start a gasoline generator and not care if they are paying the people they are fighting against for it. Of course then there is the throw away Styrofoam and plastic utensils and cups and lets not forget the propane. The throw away society is just hurting the world and its not going to stop till we stop using the garbage they are selling.


Don't miss-understand as your reading this. I get that somethings must be used as long as others are “illegal” but ALL of them can be replaced if we can get past the concept that its that or nothing. Germany is proving that solar power can replace nuclear power and yet FAR to many people in the USA can’t see past the end of their noises and the lies they have been told all their lives. Its these things that I hated about Occupy and now, making me hate Standing Rock.

Lies? The government lies to you. Your people that your there to help lies to you. Without the truth, what are you supposed to do? I get that secrecy is important but with out the truth, how are you supposed to make intelligent decisions? If the people your there to help tells you that we are going to war when the reality is that its a call to help move, how is someone supposed to know what to do?





Below is a letter to the members of Eagles Nest, the vets camp on Sacred Stone and all that came to Standing Rock:

Dear Eagles Nest,
I am sorry. Sorry, I am unable to show you a better way and sorry that you refuse to learn a better way. Everything I have tried to tell you has been for your
benefit. What did I get out of this experience? Nothing but a lesson that you will never change and will continue to pay the enemy. The enemy in not on the other side of the river. The enemy are the ones you keep paying and mostly yourself.
The enemy are the corporations and you keep supporting them. They are the same people that tell you that you must use gasoline to power your car, coal and nuclear power to run your homes. They are the same ones that set “rules” that you must use plastic or sterilize everything because if you don’t you will get sick and die. The truth is that, they are the ones killing you with fluoride, GMO’s, plastic, oil and many other “products”. Until you change your way of thinking, the war your fighting will continue. Every rubber bullet, or tear gas they shoot at you has been bought by you. Make no mistake, they will kill you if you get in their way. In this case, even if you stop the oil line, they still get millions of dollars in fake money but your president will not stop, even when he orders them to use rocket launchers. If you get in their way, you will learn the hard way, they will not stop but till then, you will keep supporting the same system and you will never make a change to save our mother earth.
The Christin program you follow, does not work like you think it does. It is made to keep you doing the things you do in support of the system. When I hear “mandatory prayer”, I just hear how your a hypocrite and don’t even know it. It saddens me to my soul when anyone puts gasoline in a generator for power and not think twice about it. Rather then “Oh, that is just Oscur” how about asking yourself “How will this effect my grandkids?” the way the native Americans claim to. Yes, even they do these things and that hurts me even more because I thought better of them and seem to be more aware then anyone I have ever met. The one thing I promised myself and the members of the Eagles Nest is that I would get the mess hall off the generator and on “alternative power”, I have done ... for 3 days. Now its up to you to “live within your means”. To be honest, I doubt you will ever until you learn that all you have been taught all of your life is a lie.
Your friend, Oscur Journey



I’m not a fiction writer nor am I a writer in general but lets try to tell a story:
There once was a planet ruled by a group of people called the “upper class”. These people would do anything to make themselves bigger and better and give themselves more power over the rest of the world. These people would make things up to get the rest of the people (the middle class and lower class) the do what they want,to make themselves even more
powerful. They created a device that controls the rest of the people. A leach that is embedded into the mind. This leach feeds off the things that people consume. The parasite’s favorite foods are poison the the body it inhabits. That is OK since this leach is passed on to the next generation. Its to bad that the next generation is weaker and dumber. The elite make things that feeds the leach and destroys the host. They will never infest their own group because they know what its doing to the rest of the world but that doesn’t concern them. They also, know that they are destroying the very same world that they live on. It doesn’t matter to them because they think nothing else matters except the fake power they continue to gain. This goes on and on for decade after decade until the planet finely cleans herself of the infection called humans if she, mother earth, can and hasn't’ been damaged beyond repair, by then. A few have stopped hearing the leach but have yet to completely reject it. It still grows and still keeps the host distracted with the lies of the upper class. Until its completely removed, there is NO HOPE and no future for this planet. The saddest part is that the rest of the people can remove it but after over 5 years, its still very much alive and getting stronger every day. This leach continues to help you come up with excuses as to why it can’t be done.

When the people stop using crude (no this is not a spelling error) oil plastic bottles, coal and nuclear power plants and things that are killing the planet and stop poisoning ourselves with chemicals mother earth did not make, then and only then will we as a species survive and move into the 21st century. Until we get the people setting the rules to stop collecting fake money, we will continue to be in the “new dark ages” and those people will keep telling the leach to lie to us.

Austin TX

What can I do to help? What do I get out of helping people in need?

A parking lot next to the Salvation Army and the ARCH, the cities homeless shelters is a "meeting place for cops". And it looks like its used to intimidate people that must sleep on the sidewalks around the place because they just don't have the space.

Why is this continuing? Simple: if someone isn't making money, they must come up with a way to get more from people who have none. They fine homeless people for panhandling and trespassing and since they have no money, send the homeless people to jail where the jails make money from slave labor, guards make money from babysitting them and clothes manufacturing makes money for the jumpsuit and food industry makes money feeding (yes, I said feeding people, after all, that IS all we are to them).

A place called Community First Village is ran by a non-profit called Mobile Loaves & Fishes (this group is often seen in mobile food trucks but no one knows when or where they will show up, Austin is the most disorganized city I have ever seen) charges $225 per month to live in a tent. The village is a giant advertisement for construction companies that "donated" supplies and time to build some of the "tiny houses". More pictures can be found on #HomelessEcoVille's site.

I often hear people say things like "if you starve to death in ____ city, its your own fault". With portions like this at Caritas of Austin, I can't see how they can think that. Fortunately, the Trinity Center does a little "breakfast" after "announcements and devotion", of course because homeless people are not allowed to be normal and have coffee till they hear "the word" and the ones "helping" have already had their coffee and breakfast. It really does get to be a drag, not being Christian some days and are forced to sit through other people's believes.

Even #Homeless don't like Trump
Austin, apparently supersedes the state as well as the US Constitution because, Austin says you can not be within 15 feet of a public building and smoke but the state of Texas says you can't be within 20 feet of the door. While writing this blog, a guy had to park is bike where it can be seen from inside the "public library", because he couldn't lock it to a bike rack several feet away and could not see it. He was threatened with arrest if he did not move it. Because the guy cannot afford a lock for his bike, he cannot partake if a public library service.

I had the opportunity to work day labor for 21 days.One of these jobs I went on was a furniture moving job. All the brand new furniture came in boxes that had "made in ___" on them and not one was "made in USA". The guy that hired us, was getting upset with the "bad" job we where doing. It took all my will power not to tell him "buy American" and walk off the job because at one point in my life, I worked in a furniture manufacturing plant that no longer exists. Day labor serves: After 21 days, I had earned $1235 and take home of $984. How when your spending $500 or more a month on rent, does one live? Oh, and by the way do not get sick.

In conclusion, we must mention the worst place of all. A place called Angle House. If the board of health where to stop by ANY place that is this filthy, how fast would it be closed? How old must someone be to be treated like an adult? Go to this place, find insects in your soup and not considering it healthy, not want to eat it. Then, you are suddenly talked to as if a child. "If your not going to eat something, don't take it".

Ask yourself every day: Why am I doing this?

Independence


Can a person live without depending on a community? Must a group of people depend on others? Why must I depend on a group of people making money on my being in their program?

I wish someone would answer these questions because I don't understand why no one seems to think a person can live with out a group of people setting rules for them. No one seems to get the idea that a community can be self supporting and self sustaining with out others often times making money off them.
#HomelessEcoVille can be 100% independent and never need outside sources.  Is it possible for a group of people growing and raising food, reclaiming things that most simply put into land fills? If someone where to put an acre of land in the name of #HomelessEcoVille, I would be there so fast. Life CAN be simple again. DO NOT tell me I need someone to manage my money, make sure I eat all the right foods or go to bed at a set time. Stop treating me like I know nothing and need a parent to supervise me. Most homeless people ARE adults. Stop making money from your oil companies by forcing me to use a Styrofoam cup. Stop acting like your better then me because YOU have red blood just like me and walk on two legs just like me. I am not better then you because of the color of my skin or yours. The day the WHOLE world starts working together, is the day we will stop living in the Dark Ages. I can grow my own food, I can build my own house. I don't need you standing over me and telling me how to wipe my ass. I don't need you telling me that the Styrofoam coffee cup is a must. I can use a re-usable one that doesn't destroy the planet and make you money.

If my writings piss you off, tough shit, your part of the problem.

Religon

Homeless services? Why does a person seek out help? For religion? For food? For shelter?

For any living thing to survive, the first thing is food, second is
shelter. Where does religion come in? Don't misunderstand me. We humans tend to need to believe in a higher power. The problem is when some are under the impression that this "higher power" must come before anything. If that means, an emergence problem must be addressed, some simply don't care.

Why is it so important that a group of people serving a meal must hold that meal and force you to listen to someone elses beliefs? Who is to say that Christianity is the correct way? What about Buddhism? How about Druidism? None if this matters when you have no food.

The other day, I was at a "Day Center" that proclaims to be there to help homeless people. The first thing that they do every day is, read from the bible. Nothing else is permitted before that. When a person said that he had to make an emergency phone call, he was told no. Naturally he was already upset and this didn't help. The day center band him because his personal emergency was not as important as the preaching that we must endure even if its not our personal beliefs.

The US Constitution's First Amendment says: "free exercise of religion" but most of the time, this is not true if your homeless. Another example of not having freedom of religion is Salvation Army. ALWAYS, they must "pray" for you and must pray over your food. Now, someone wants to force this on you as well:Teach Little Girls To Be Christian, Submissive, And Pure For Future.


Not all people, homeless or not, are christian or some deviation of that faith so, STOP FORCING YOUR WILL ON OTHERS. I chose my way and that is a very personal choice. If I am interested in your ways, I will ask, trust me on this. When one group wants to kill you for that, what does that say about that group?

Until we come together as ONE people, ONE planet, we will NOT move into the 21st century.

#Homeless

One of the problems with being homeless is a lot of time on your hands. I fill that void with sci-fi's, mistries and fantasy novals. I just finished reading "W is for Wasted" by Sue Grafton. Its about a private investor that gets caught up in the lives of some homeless people.
In the end, two homeless men died. The eulogy is so INCREDIBLE, I have to share it. If it doesn't touch your heart, I feel sorry for you.

We are here this afternoon to mourn the passing of two good friends. Terrence and Felix. They where homeless.  Their ways were not those we most desire for ourselves, but that didn't make them wrong. We seem determined to save the homeless, to fix them, to change them into something other than what they are.  We want them to be like us, but they are not.
The homeless do not want our pity, nor do they deserve our scorn. Our judgements about them, for good or for ill, negate their right to live as they please. Both the urge to rescue and the need to condemn fail to take into account the concept of personal liberty, which they may exercise as they see fit as long as their actions fall within the law. The homeless are not lesser mortals. For Terrace and Felix, their battles were within and their victories hard-won. I think of these two men as soldiers of the poor,  part of an army of the disaffiliated. The homeless have established a nation within a nation but we are not at war. Why should we not coexist in peace when we may be in greater need of salvation than they?
This is what the homeless long for: respect, freedom from hunger,  shelter from the elements, safety, the companionship of like-minded. They want to live without fear. They want to enjoy the probity of the open air without the risk of bodily harm. They want to be warm. They want the comfort of a clean bed when they are ill, relief from pain, a hand offered in friendship. Ordinary conversion. Simple needs. Why are their choices so hard for us to accept?
What you see before you is their home. This is their dwelling place. This grass, this sunlight, these palms, this mighty ocean, the moon, the stars, the clouds, overhead though they sometimes harbor rain. Under this canopy they have staked out a life for themselves. For Terrence and for Felix, this is also the wide bridge over which they passed from life into death. Their graves will be unmarked but that does not mean they are forgotten. The earth remembers them, evern as it gathers them tenderly into its embrace.  The sky still claims them and we who honor them will hold them dear from this day forward.

Although the author nails this perfectly,  she did miss it just a little. There IS a war against the homeless people out there. Share this with your friends.

Columbia SC

Why is it that people serving meals to homeless seem to believe they must preach and convert everyone to the faith they follow?

That is what the church called Cafe Ministries thinks. Although I was to far away to video this, I heard them say something along the lines of "If you can not respect the church or the preacher, we will take your meal ticket away." Another group on Wednesdays, insists on preaching at you for about half an hour before serving a meal. One thing all of them have in common is Columbia is that unless its a Christian holiday, they all FEED outside like homeless people are just mere animals when some cities I've been to, they SERVE indoors.
The Hotdog Man
I fail to see why it is that homeless people MUST be forced to hear the book they talk of in order to get a meal. Doesn't that book say something about feeding the sheep before preaching to them? If I wanted to get preached at, I'd go to a church. If I wanted to get treated like an animal, I'd go to a zoo and fight in just nice with them. Serving a person, lifts them up but feeding them, keeps them down.
The hot dog guy of Gainesville FL or The hot dog man of Columbia SC. A short and to the point like the video below from Columbia.
Food Not Bombs
In fact, the place I'm making this blog, I had a guy approach me with $5 saying that I could get something other then coffee for breakfast. Then he started preaching, I handed the money back and said no thank you.



My other question is, why are these folks (although they often have GREAT meals) are they so willing to give food and other supplies, are they not willing to help get off the streets? +Bryant King came up with a great idea called #HomelessEcoVille and yet, the same people that will only give hand outs, won't give a hand up.
