…How did we come to this…?

… Social Security … Medicare … Medicare … Child Protective Services … Education … topics at the top of many lists waved inducing mindless foaming at the mouth ideological responses …

…How did we come to this…?  

At what point did we make an elementary transition to become stridently fixed to fundamentally polarizing dogma…?   

When was compromise, negotiating in good-faith and conciliation replaced with in-your-face, shrill, cacophonous and discordant tenets…?

And upon whose shoulders does it fall to move into a posture encouraging each of us to leave at the door our raucous inflexibility…?

Was each of us willing, we need only look in the closest mirror and that image reflected back to us holds that key. 

And therein lays our first challenge as we are, each of us, deeply entrenched in the elaborately constructed apparent infallibility of our now highly polished time honed positions.  

Even looking in the mirror reveals nothing new and often only serves to reinforce our already deeply entrench polarized positions…

imageIt takes real tenacity to even choose to look in any mirror and more to address that which is revealed.

Updates: Quartszite, AZ State of Emergency?

clip_image004Things in Quartszite, Arizona continue to heat up after City Council ordered the removal of Jennifer Jones who was then arrestedat a meeting in late June.

Mayor Ed Foster was compelled by a cop in tactical gear to go to an impromptu, secret council meeting this past Sunday. He refused and went by himself. After Foster protested that the meeting was illegal, the door was locked even though it was supposedly “public.”

Apparently, the meeting was prompted by the chief of police where they discussed some threatening emails, recent activist outbursts, and declared a state of emergency. More information in the article and videos below.

Yesterday: The mayor ordered the regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday, July 12 cancelled and left. Council members held that Sunday’s meeting was “presumptively” legal until proved otherwise and continued the meeting without the mayor despite a loud “nay” of disapproval from opposing public attendees.

Mayor Claims Quartzsite, Arizona Under Martial Law After State Of Emergency Declared During Secret Meeting

Quartzsite, Arizona, the town now infamous for arresting a citizen for speaking during a public city council meeting, has apparently declared martial law.

This, according to Quartzsite Mayor Ed Foster, happened after a secret meeting was held during which the city council voted in favor of declaring a state of emergency.

Jennifer Jones, the woman who has gone on a full scale crusade against corruption in the small town of 3,600, posted an urgent update on her blog The Desert Freedom Press.

“At about noon today, the town council, at the request of the police chief, declared an official state of emergency. Sgt Xavier Frausto was dressed in tactical gear when he and the police chief demanded the mayor get in their car,” wrote Jones.

That’s right, according to this report, police in tactical gear ordered a sitting mayor to a potentially illegal secret meeting.

The Mayor instead drove himself to the meeting which he himself later called illegal.

World Net Daily spoke with Jennifer Jones who now fears for her safety in the small town 2 hours outside of Phoenix.

“They’ve got their tactical gear on, the police chief and his sergeant,” Jones said. “I don’t know what that means. I need to get the word out in case they come here. I am very concerned for my safety.”

An Arizona Republic report confirms that Quartzite Mayor Ed Foster has indeed called the situation in his town a form of martial law but also quotes the Vice Mayor as saying that while she condems the meeting, martial law is not necessarily the right word to use.

“Foster said the council had imposed martial law, but Vice Mayor Barbara Cowell said that does not accurately characterize the action. She added that the city attorney had condoned the meeting and that a recording of the session will be made accessible to the public today,” The Arizona Republic reported.

The situation in Quartzsite has been heating up as the story of Jennifer Jones and her unlawful arrest during a city council meeting has gained momentum after being covered by multiple mainstream newspapers.

The initial arrest came as Jennifer was exposing the corruption of the local city council as well as the police chief who is already under investigation by The Arizona State Dept of Public Safety.

then let’s talk …

 

…As we choose to wag our finger at Hollywood it might be time to investigate just who owns and controls the movie industry … the major player$ …  Murdoch/News Corporation …. Viacom …Time Warner … Disney … Sony … Comcast/General Electric …

Then make the time to investigate who their principal stockholders are …

The entertainment industry is no stranger to government propaganda campaigns, and the latest Hollywood flicks are no exception. A quick look at the trailer for the upcoming release of the movie …  Contagion … (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4sYS…) …  reveals what appears to be a massive brainwashing campaign designed to prepare the American psyche for the next intentional release of a bioengineered virus — and it also conveniently and subtly programs viewers into accepting the idea that vaccines might be the solution to a major, devastating disease outbreak.

This tactic is nothing new, of course. If you look back at the themes of major moviereleases over the past several decades and compare them to what ends up taking place in the real world not too long after, it becomes eerily clear that Hollywood is deeply connected to the agendas of those that are now in control of various world governments, including the US government.

Many, if not most, movies released today appear to be nothing more than psychological manipulation designed to either dull the minds of the people into accepting a certain agenda, or to literally condition people’s minds for upcoming disastrous events.

PROPAGANDA  ON  ALL  LEVELS

… IS THIS GREEN … ?

… IS THIS GREEN … ?

So true!

In the line at the  store, the cashier told the older woman that she should
bring her own grocery  bag because plastic bags weren’t good for the environment.

 

The woman apologized to him and explained,
"We didn’t have the green thing back in my day."
 
The clerk responded, "That’s our problem
today

The former  generation did not care enough to save our environment."
 
He was right,  that generation didn’t have the green thing in its day.  Back then, they  returned their milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the store.  The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over.  So they really were recycled.
 
But they didn’t have the green thing back in that customer’s day.
 
In her day, they walked up stairs, because they didn’t have an escalator in every store and office building.  They walked to the grocery store and didn’t climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time they had to go two blocks.
 
But she was right. They didn’t have the green thing in her day.
 
Back then, they washed the baby’s diapers because they didn’t have the throw-away kind.  They dried clothes on a line, not in an energy gobbling machine burning up 220 volts – wind and solar power really did dry the clothes.  Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing.

But that old lady is right, they didn’t have the green thing back in her day.
 
Back then, they had one TV, or radio, in the  house – not a TV in every room.  And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief, not a screen the size of the state of Montana .  In the kitchen, they blended and stirred by hand because they didn’t have electric machines to do everything for you.  When they packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, they used a wadded up old newspaper to cushion it, not styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap.
 
Back then, they didn’t fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the lawn.   They used a push mower that ran on human power.   They exercised by working so they didn’t need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity.
 
But she’s right, they didn’t have the green thing back then.
 
They drank from a fountain when they were thirsty instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time they had a drink of water.  They refilled their writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and they replaced the razor blades in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull.
 
But they didn’t have the green thing back then.
 
Back then, people took the streetcar or a bus and kids rode their bikes to school or walked instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour taxi service.  They had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances.  And they didn’t need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 2,000 miles out  in space in order to find the nearest pizza joint.
 
But isn’t it sad the current generation laments how wasteful the old folks were just because they didn’t have the green thing back then?

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you … Elaine …

Water as a Corporate Concern

 

Posted By Elizabeth Cutright July 12th, 2011 12:51pm PST …  http://www.waterefficiency.net/blogs/we-editors-blog/water-as-a-corporate-concern-83711.aspx

 

Late last year, the Carbon Disclosure project released its first report under its new program, CDP Water Disclosure. The report details the impact water scarcity is having on the multinational corporations across the globe. The findings highlighted a reality that many of the world’s largest corporations are already experiencing firsthand—that water resource management is not just a public policy issue, it’s a corporate and commercial issue as well.

 

The report was compiled from the results of responses garnered from a questionnaire initially sent out to 302 companies (about 50% of the companies’ contacts, a result that the CDP calls “impressive for the program’s first year). With questions ranging from water strategies to management plans, along with queries about the water-related risks and opportunities anticipated by respondents, the questionnaire ultimately highlights corporate water use “within the context of local scarcity or abundance.”

 

The information in the final report was generated on behalf of “137 institutional investors representing US $16 trillion in assets” and their desire to “increase transparency and accountability on water scarcity and other water-related issues, and to inform the global market place on investment risks and commercial opportunities”. The hope is that the data provided in the report will allow multinational corporations—many of whom are of the largest water users in the regions in which they operate—to strategize and adapt in the face of increased scarcity and the consumer demand for increased sustainability.

 

Some key findings of the CDP Water Disclosure:


• 96% of responding companies were able to identify whether or not they are exposed to water risk and more than half of those reporting risks, classifying them as current or near-term (1–5 years).
• 39% of companies are already experiencing detrimental impacts relating to water, including disruption to operations from drought or flooding, declining water quality necessitating costly onsite pre-treatment, and increases in water prices, as well as fines and litigation relating to pollution incidents.
• Water security is already high on the corporate agenda with 67% reporting responsibility for water-related issues at the board or executive committee level.
• The majority of companies (89%) have already developed specific water policies, strategies, and plans, and 60% have set water-related performance targets.

 

The CDP report is not alone in identifying water resource management as a key corporate concern. This week, in a blog entitled “Changing How Businesses Think About Water,” Snehel Desai (global marketing director for Dow Chemical Company’s Water and Process Solutions Business) writes, “By thinking differently about water and valuing it as a critical resource, firms can increase their bottom line, while having a more positive impact on their local communities.” 

 

Desai goes on to explain that while businesses may care about water stewardship, “without incentives to improve water productivity, companies will focus elsewhere.”  According to Desai, increased crop yields and the resulting reduction in water use makes US agricultural industry a perfect example of successful incentivized water resource management. “Because agriculture accounts for about 70% of world water use,” says Desai,  “the industry has had the strongest incentive and greatest impact.”

 

Ultimately, focusing on water resource management as part of a whole corporate structure can only improve the bottom line and streamline the operations of the world’s largest companies.  As Desai says, “Companies that rethink their water use and increase water productivity get better bottom-line performance and improved profits in the long-term. And by thinking of themselves as stewards of the water supply, firms can bring immeasurable benefits to their surrounding communities.”
