Win an AR-15 Weapon - $10 Police Raffle Ticket - See PICS

AR-15s. The killing spree weapon of choice. easy to customize, cheaper ammo, soft recoil.

Raffle Tickets only cost $10 $20 $30 - A bargain for such expensive semi-automatic weapon.

AFTER AN HOUR OR SO OF RESEARCH, I found that Police & Firemen sell Raffle Tickets for AR-15s all across America.

Here are some Raffle flyers. (FOP in posters means Fraternal Order of Police)







To see how widespread this is, maybe near you, Google search - Police Gun Raffle - or FOP Gun Raffle or Firemen Gun Raffle or Cop Gun Raffle or just plain "Gun Raffle"

Click on "images" if your not in the mood to read.

Police also RESELL CONFISCATED guns.

A HS Basebal team has second gun raffle. OMG!


FUBARRED - Police Sell Confiscated AR15s, Uzis - Video

Police departments sell Confiscated weapons, have been for 25 years!



...."According to documents obtained by CBS News, over a two-year period San Francisco police sold or traded more than 100 of their assault weapons, including AR-15s and Uzis....

According to contracts and shipping records, over the last seven years, the Detroit Police Department made nearly a million dollars selling 14 tons of used weapons, mostly handguns, to a Vermont dealer.."

Police departments also get military weapons from the USMilitary

".....Some 82 local police departments in Massachusetts, many of them hamlets with little or no violent crime and no known terrorist threats, have obtained 1,068 weapons under a federal program that distributes surplus guns from the US military......"

New Tiny Homes House Homeless - Seattle Area - Pics Included

Hope for Humanity is Alive and well in Seattle areas.

Seattle Rocks - Tiny homes are just the latest addition to the Seattle area's huge, coordinated effort to provide shelter, meals, and services to its thousands of homeless.
http://greaterseattlecares.org/encampments/

This is such a great HUMANE idea. Housing is becoming too expensive for too many people throughout the USA.



"An organization in Seattle, Washington will open up a tiny house village on Wednesday to provide 40 homes to families living on the streets.

Built by the homelessness advocacy group Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI) on a piece of land that the agency owns, the 40 tiny houses will provide much-needed temporary shelter to serve about 70 people who are among the city’s swelling homeless population. The houses, which are 12-foot by eight-foot, will be staffed by two full-time workers who will ensure the security of the village. There will also be a communal kitchen......"

Lutheran church in Seattle WA USA donated land for tiny homes to provide shelter for the homeless.

"....Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd put up the land for the village — the first of its kind in Seattle.

Each house cost about $2,200 to build and residents will pay $90 a month for utilities."

They will serve as a model for more tiny house villages and as an alternative to “Nicklelsville,” an organized homeless camp in the city.

The houses will provide temporary housing, until occupants can be housed in permanent homes..."

Seattle has a growing homeless population due to gentrification, job losses, addiction, and others social issues.

A huge effort is working to keep the thousands of Puget Sound homeless alive.

Rx & Rehab Suggestions for Your Politically Polluted Minds

May I prescribe an Rx and rehab for your politically polluted minds?

1. Limit your exposure to the daily bullshit distractions. Max exposure, 1 hr in the AM and 1 hr PM. Did you used to read the Nat'l Enquirer all day? NO, AM i right?

Let us not devolve, as tempting and juicy as the distractions may sound. It is a coup to harm your brain.

Find, support, and/or report important news, not Junior High-like, endorphin-damaging garbage gossip perpetuated by the desperate, morally challenged, and ratings-needy.

When we perpetuate the political gossip garbage being served up every freaking day, we are perpetuating the harm it does, true?

I have started to limit myself to THEFERRET for a fun garbage gossip update. Laughter is healthy.

2. Take time each day to uplift your spirit or, at the very least, tune out. Be kind. Help uplift others. Meditation really helps.

3. Imagine the world the way you want it to be. Their is power in numbers. The more of us taking time to IMAGINE the sooner this world will ascend to our collective vision. Young, old, healthy, or infirm. There is nothing that can stop our COLLECTIVE IMAGINATION for good.

This song helps me. Listen to music that uplifts your heart and mind. Music is medicine.

John Lennon in Imagine! with Lyrics!


Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace

You, you may say
I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world

You, you may say
I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will live as one.

We need each other now more than ever.

Kick the lie.

We have never been and will never be independent.


We Are Interdependent NOT Independent - Kick the Lie

Individualism is not independence.

Individualism is a personal expression.

Vive la différence

Vive la country that protects la différence.

The social human species has always been and will always be interdependent.

A lie was foisted on the populace. Individualism was equated with independence.

Just for a moment, feel yourself and your family all alone. How long would you survive?

We used to be a smaller, community-wide, state-wide interdependent species.

We are now a world-wide interdependent species, am I right?

I think technologies have brought us together socially and in many other ways.

The grocery store shouts our international interdependence, true?

All that is missing, imho, is our outspoken opinions that we need each other. That each member contributing their part is valued and appreciated.

It is time for the voices of the many to speak out on behalf of each other in unison.

The lie must first be dispelled. We are not independent. We need each other now more then ever.


That said:

Thank you to all the people throughout the world that are working to cloth and feed my family.

I will try to raise awareness that we all need each other, that our contributions are worthy of a decent living standard, and that all are treated with dignity.

I will be kind to all I meet each day. A smile will reach out to all asking nothing in return.

I dare to envision and hope for a better world than the one run by Greed that greases the halls of power with the booty stolen from the hands that actually produce something of value.

Please join and do the same.

DIGNITY FOR ALL!

Dream of the day that generosity is hailed and wealth is shunned.

In that day the Law of Sufficiency will be freed from the shackles of the greedy and heartless.

A late night rant.

Thank you and good night.

Europeans are Opting for Meat Substitutes 450% Increase



Products that worked as meat alternatives were by far the most popular sector, boasting a growth of 451%. Researchers also reported an increase of 196% for vegan products and of 73 % for gluten-free products.

https://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/meat-substitutes-europe-grown-451/



My favorite meat substitute burger is a grilled portabello mushroom with all the burger fixings under the sun.

My Instapot, idiot-proof pressure cooker makes beans and rice easily and perfectly completely unattended. I pop in the ingredients, put on the cover, push a couple of buttons and go off to do other things. The Instapot turns itself off and keeps food warm. The best invention. Now available at Target for $99. So much better than overcooked crock pot veggies, imo.



My fav is Moong Dal aka Kichari. It is Indian medicine, soothes my soul ☺️🙏

Save some money, too. The Instapot paid for itself in 30 days.

I feel better, too.

Save a cow
Save a pig
Save a chicken
Save a ton of cash
Do a jig.

Go for mostly plant based proteins and enjoy that meat once a week.

Oh, almost forgot to mention the life saving properties of chick peas/garbonzo. The list of health benefits is long. But my fave is a satisfying cleansing (trying to be delicately classy here)

Beans and rice combined are a better source of nutrients than meat.

What are your fav meat substitutes recipes or foods

We are ONE Nation, Indivisible - Pics Speaks Volumes

We can and must stand up to divisiveness TOGETHER!

These pics were taken going on 8 years ago at the One Nation DC Rally - 10.2.10

The weather was perfect. The sense of being a united people was breathtaking.

WE can and do STAND TOGETHER.

Don't buy the negative propaganda being spewed 24/7, designed to beat us down, to depress our hopes, to dash our dreams, and to convince us we fight a losing battle.

We have not lost.
