Because of voting time Bill Hicks

Because of it being voting time mostly noted for how voting goes in
small towns with people with Tea Party stickers on their trucks etc.
There is a need to stand up for yourself! Like the need to get out and vote!

~~~~Elizabeth Warren: Dems must "stand up and fight"
"What the Democrats have to do is be willing to stand up and fight," she tells
CNN. Asked if the party hasn't been willing to do that, she responds:
"I just think we can use a little more of that. I think we can use a little more
of standing up and saying this is what it's about, and I'm willing to do it."

Why? Well if you knew Bush had a DUI and was from Texas would
you vote him in?

Look what happened by staying home and not voting!
Why let stupid people run things? Like voting people in that want low taxes,
when the poor does not pay much taxes and know low taxes makes cuts to
their help they get. And the cost they will have to pay to make up the loss!
"Tax experts believe that if 766 passes, local governments will be forced to
raise property taxes and local fees to compensate for the loss of revenue."

This is voting time it's time to kick the ass of stupid people when voting!
Stupidity is not a point of view!
Get out there and vote. Best noted in the words of Bill Hicks!

Finding peace, balance in your life

Have you ever wondered what if ISIS ends up taking over everything
and the US goes poof, no more US so ISIS has nothing to fight
against anymore. Would ISIS find peace or would they war monger
and find something else to fight about?

I see the point of that as just a form of natural selection.
In the end with no more places to battle I do think ISIS would start
to cut off their own heads in protest, ending in no more ISIS in form
with natural selection!

In the mean time everyone does need to find their peace / balance in their life.
To make life better for them and others! As a group we need to help
each other and work as a group, not to end up in Natural selection!

This is more noted as in the poor how they show up at places like the
Red-Lobster and high dollar places dressed bad to get a drink of tea.
Showing their poverty, walking all over town to show their poverty.
Showing the need for better pay like a poverty crusade!
To let the rich know the poor just does not magically vanish, Poof!
The point is to support the poor so they don't bring
everyone down with them! The poor makes you poor also.

So help others and pay people better. You would think people would like
to see the many poor with money to burn! Instead of stay home on the
weekend people with no sales and badly dressed people all over town.
Helping them makes you more sales and money yourself!
And does not scare away the rich people!

Paying better makes more taxes payed from the higher wages and more people
with money to burn making more jobs for many as there will be a need for jobs
to make the many things the many with better pay are buying now!
Paying better makes jobs!

So really finding peace, balance in your life makes one great thing in your life.
And for all from better pay!

JFK on a UFO and Obama time traveler.

In the 1990's I had a dream once that I was on a UFO in a waiting room.
And this guy kept coming and leaving the room. He had much of his head
missing and it grossed out the others that was there waiting.
But I saw him as JFK I talked to him a bit, I asked if he knew
who shot him he said he did not know, it happened behind him.
He then said that he had a headache and he got up and left.
I remember me or someone said "Elvis has left the building"
as he walked out of the room.
Well it was more true than I knew at the time! Who knew!

But being strange as it is for the times I had to pass that story on.
Now to Obama being a time traveler, really strange when you think about it.
But to the fact of if he knew how people would of acted about him.
Like the W.A.S.P types as it seems today. Would he of ran?

Franklin D. Roosevelt's approval ratings was also low after Social Security
got started. Many are glad we have it now! People don't like change!
This is the same for Obama Care. It's all norm!
"Obama Care going along like the Social Security Act. Nothing new"

Would Obama of went for it, if he knew nothing would of altered the time
we are in now. Think about it, if 100 years from now will all those that
stepped up and did the right thing not for yourself but for the real truth,
will they be in a history book. I hope so.
Like Franklin D. Roosevelt might of thought about being in the history books
in his time. It's mind blowing stuff when you think about it. Positivity! 

Other than all of that what would of Abe done?

Carl Jung Red Book

I heard about Carl Jung's work on the Red Book when I was in
college in the 1990's. At the time I was not into that kind of stuff.
I was in my dark ages back then in college but still
I found things interesting for the times.

The Red Book fits in with Terence Mckenna's research when you look
at it. Sort of strange!

~~~~Carl Jung
Jung proposed and developed the concepts of extraversion and introversion; archetypes,
and the collective unconscious. His work has been influential in psychiatry and in
the study of religion, philosophy, archeology, anthropology, literature, and related fields.
He was a prolific writer, though many of his works were not published until after his death.

The central concept of analytical psychology is individuation the psychological process
of integrating the opposites, including the conscious with the unconscious,
while still maintaining their relative autonomy.
Jung considered individuation to be the central process of human development.

Red Book:
In 1913, at the age of thirty-eight, Jung experienced a horrible
"confrontation with the unconscious". He saw visions and heard voices.
He worried at times that he was "menaced by a psychosis" or was
"doing a schizophrenia". He decided that it was valuable experience and, in private,
he induced hallucinations or, in his words, "active imaginations".
He recorded everything he felt in small journals. Jung began to transcribe his notes
into a large red leather-bound book, on which he worked intermittently for sixteen years

~~~~Red Book (Jung)
"From December 1913 onward, he carried on in the same procedure: deliberately evoking
a fantasy in a waking state, and then entering into it as into a drama.
These fantasies may be understood as a type of dramatized thinking in pictorial form....
In retrospect, he recalled that his scientific question was to see what took place when he
switched off consciousness. The example of dreams indicated the existence of background
activity, and he wanted to give this a possibility of emerging, just as one does
when taking mescaline."

Jung initially recorded his "visions", or "fantasies, or "imaginations" all terms used by
Jung to describe his activity in a series of six journals now known collectively as the
"Black Books". This journal record begins on 12 November 1913,
and continues with intensity through the summer of 1914; subsequent entries were
added up through at least the 1930s. Biographer Barbara Hannah, who was close to
Jung throughout the last three decades of his life, compared Jung's imaginative experiences
recounted in his journals to the encounter of Menelaus with Proteus in the Odyssey.
Jung, she said, "made it a rule never to let a figure or figures that he encountered leave
until they had told him why they had appeared to him."

After the outbreak of World War I in August of 1914, Jung perceived that his visionary
experience was not only of personal relevance, but entwined with a crucial cultural moment.
In late-1914 and 1915 he compiled the visions from the journals, along with his additional
commentary on each imaginative episode, into an initial manuscript. 
This manuscript was the beginning of Liber Novus.

In 1915 Jung began artfully transcribing this draft text into the illuminated calligraphic
volume that would subsequently become known as the Red Book. In 1917 he
compiled a further supplementary manuscript of visionary material and commentary,
which he titled "Scrutinies"; this also was apparently intended for transcription into his
red folio volume, the "Red Book". Although Jung labored on the artful transcription
of this corpus of manuscript material into the calligraphic folio of the Red Book for
sixteen years, he never completed the task. Only approximately two-thirds of
Jung's manuscript text was transcribed into the Red Book by 1930, when he abandoned
further work on the calligraphic transcription of his draft material into the Red Book.

The published edition of The Red Book: Liber Novus includes all of Jung's manuscript
material prepared for Liber Novus, and not just the portion of the text transcribed by 
Jung into the calligraphic red book volume.

Walmart a $476 billion sales cutting workers benefits

Have you been to Walmart lately? I noticed at the Walmart where I live
seems to be running out of bags in produce. You have to put your produce
in a white walmart grocery bag here.
A corporation that made $476 billion last year in sales.
being out of bags?

Even in study at Walmart paying $12 an hour with cost soaked up in
sales at no cost.

So to say "Wal-Mart cuts health benefits for 30,000 part-timers."
Really? I sure don't see my Walmart here as hurting, it's full of people!

~~~~Wal-Mart cuts health benefits for 30,000 part-timers.
The cut applies to part-timers who work fewer than 30 hours a week,
Wal-Mart about 2% of the company's U.S. workforce.
More of Wal-Mart's employees signed up for health benefits this year than the
company expected, which boosted the company's costs.
One reason for the increase in sign-ups could be Obamacare, which requires
most everyone to have health coverage, though Wal-Mart did not make that
connection. Employees who lost the Wal-Mart coverage option would now be
eligible for government subsidies on Obamacare exchanges.
That could work out to a better deal, especially for lower-paid employees.

***Note it sounds like Walmart is wanting to pass off the cost to everyone else.
Being Walmart as it runs today is not that bad running.

~~~~Wal-Mart Expects 30% Rise In E-Commerce Revenues This Year.
The world’s largest retailer, Wal-Mart operates close to 4,000 stores in the U.S.,
which leaves minimal room for its store expansion. As a result, the retailer relies on
increases in same-store sales and growth in e-commerce business for a big portion
of its revenue growth. However, Wal-Mart’s comparable sales growth has been
negative for the past five quarters, due to the sluggish economic environment in the U.S.
On the other hand, the company’s e-commerce revenues have grown at a
robust pace driven by several initiatives deployed over the last few years.

Despite this hefty growth, the e-commerce channel hasn’t had a noticeable impact
on the retailer’s results as it accounts for less than 3% of Wal-Mart’s overall sales.
Even as the retailer witnessed double-digit growth in e-commerce revenues in
Q1 fiscal 2015, the channel contributed just 30 basis points to its U.S.
comparable sales. Nevertheless, e-commerce is one of the two most important growth
channels (other being smaller format stores) for the company that are likely to play
a crucial role in the long run. In a recent shareholder meeting, Wal-Mart stated that its
e-commerce revenues are likely to increase to $13 billion this year from $10 billion
in fiscal 2014. Even though e-commerce business doesn’t look significant at the moment,
it is worthwhile to discuss the future of this channel given the tremendous potential it holds.

***Now is the time to call Wal-Mart and ask them why they are cutting
healthcare making us all pay for it. Walmart is not hurting!

Ebola Outbreak to be preventive or not to be

Ebola is a nasty little bug when it is nasty, but for the most part you need to
know what it is and what not to do.

All that can really be done if you have it is to call 911 and let them know stay home.
As for workers let the pro take care of it. And for all other bad things take preventive
actions use bleach if needed or other high up disinfectants!
That would be more needed for the more likely viruses than getting
Ebola more like E.Coli is what you need to worry about!

Many want to ban flights in from hot zones of Ebola but that just
does not work when you could just get your ticket to a non infected zone
and take a bus or rent a car to where you need to go etc.
Jump flights, bounce around a bit! There are ways if things are banned!
Like banning illegal aliens from coming to the US "Poof here we are!"

But to be safe with the flu, etc, just be aware when you go to a Walmart
or other stores knowing they are big accessed public places there is more
chances to run in to something there.

Also in many towns many workers will work sick being they can't miss anymore
days at work they have no sick time or bad attendance policy's work places have
forces the workers to work sick.

The issue of Ebola is just not just at one place it's all the places in town you live at.
If someone in your small town gets it and works sick!
But the issue is more on the Flu than anything! 

Really all you need to do is to just take preventive actions.
Clean you hands, don't use the bathroom at Walmart etc! Take care of yourself!

For the workers. Clean door handles, bathrooms etc, disinfecting all you can and
for workplaces to get more staff in doing this action.
Don't think in the do more with less staffing if things look bad!
It's panic time, maintenance time stops give everyone bleach or something
until things look better around you!

Ebola is just a small worry controlled. More people get the common cold than Ebola!

A Q&A with Dr. James Childs
Dr. James “Jamie” Childs is a zoonotic disease specialist at the Yale School of
Public Health who worked on a previous outbreak of Ebola virus.
The deadly disease is currently afflicting several countries in Africa
(Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone) and has triggered fears that it could
spread into territories where it has previously been unknown. Prior to coming to
Yale, Dr. Childs worked at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and
spent four weeks on the ground in Kikwit, Zaire
(now the Democratic Republic of the Congo) in 1995 investigating an outbreak
of the disease that killed 280 of the 318 people infected.
Dr. Childs currently works on a range of other zoonotic diseases,
including hantaviruses, arenaviruses, rabies and vector-borne,
or environmentally transmitted bacteria, including
rickettsia, borrelia and leptospira. He joined Yale in 2004.

Why is the Ebola virus so deadly?
JC: Ebola causes multisystem diseases with vascular involvement leading to
bleeding under the skin, in internal organs, or from the mouth, eyes or ears.
However, patients rarely die directly from blood loss, but show shock, nervous system,
kidney or pulmonary malfunctions, coma, delirium, and seizures.
The patho-physiologic causes of bleeding abnormalities vary with the etiologic agent
and include endothelial cell tropism with attendant capillary leakage and disseminated
intravascular coagulation. Ebola viruses vary in their ability to cause human infection,
disease and death. The five currently differentiated species in the genus Ebola virus
(Family: Filoviridae) have different virulence for humans. The Zaire species of Ebola,
currently circulating in West Africa causes mortality of up to 85 percent among humans,
while the Sudan species causes mortality in the 50 percent to 60 percent range.

How is the virus transmitted? 
JC: These are zoonotic agents, which circulate among bats in their natural
maintenance cycle. Animals other than humans, most notably the great apes,
are susceptible to infection and the fatal disease caused by Ebola viruses.
In many instances we do not know the immediate source of exposure involving the
index human case, but butchering meat obtained from a freshly dead chimpanzee has
been directly linked to a small outbreak. Once a human is infected the virus can be
directly transmitted to another human without the further need of reintroduction from
the extra-human reservoir species. Close human-to-human contact is required for
Ebola virus transmission as the virus is shed in body excretions, secretions and blood.
There is no aerosol transmission, such as occurs with measles and influenza virus. 
As the load of virus can be very high in blood and contaminated waste products,
extreme caution and stringent barrier-protection techniques are essential when using
needles or sharp instruments in the care of infected patients.
Sexual transmission by infectious semen may be a rare occurrence after
apparent recovery from infection.

What are its symptoms?
JC: The incubation period of Ebola hemorrhagic fever ranges from a few days to
weeks. However, the onset of febrile disease is abrupt, prostrating, and often
accompanied by severe headache and sore throat. Gastrointestinal complications
with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea usually follow and high titers of virus are then
present in the blood and feces. At this point laboratory examinations usually show
low white blood cell and platelet counts and internal and external bleeding abnormalities
are evident; a rash is sometimes present.

Too often an epidemic of Ebola virus begins in a hospital setting where physicians,
nurses and technicians, lacking critical barrier protection or sterile equipment,
are exposed to infectious bodily materials. Seemingly routine procedure on an
Ebola patient presenting with early, non-readily differentiated symptoms can lead to
multiple infections among attending health care workers.
Disease can rapidly spread through health workers at a hospital with disastrous
results including closures of hospitals and clinics. Patients must then be treated at home,
usually by family members who, in turn, are at risk of becoming infected.
Added to that is the difficulty of safely disposing of the highly infectious bodies
of the recently dead. One of the major challenges to effective control of Ebola
is that the symptoms and signs of early infection cannot be readily distinguished from
those associated with numerous parasitic diseases, such as malaria, or other viral infections
afflicting persons in endemic regions of Central and West Africa.
