It seems that today, authorities use these additional powers given them to harass kids, regular folks, and start censoring and moving toward more of an authoritarian state because of such broad powers. The kid did nothing wrong, and I doubt their was any obstruction of justice or whatever they wrote down in order to try and prosecute the child. If we do not stand for something we will fall for anything. This wrong and they know it and so do we. They need to release the kid, apologize and the prosecutor and the police officer need to be fired. Is this the “moderate encroachment” that our President says he is OK with. Look, I may love the guy, speaking of the President, but I do not agree with what he has now fully ushered in through his incessant defense of a wrong doing. Now, local law enforcement and officials seem to be following suit too. All in the name of “security” I bet.

Governments around the world seem to just not give a damn about their constituents, each showing it in varied ways, and for some violence against its people included.

Via Business Insider: “As the war over income inequality wages on, super-rich Seattle entrepreneur Nick Hanauer has been raising the hackles of his fellow 1-percenters, espousing the contrarian argument that rich people don’t actually create jobs. The position is controversial — so much so that TED is refusing to post a talk that Hanauer gave on the subject. National Journal reports today that TED officials decided not to put Hanauer’s March 1 speech up online after deeming his remarks “too politically controversial” for the site…”.
Can’t really say anything to that except that the Native American does have a point. Wow!! I can see why the Native-American would feel this way since even now the lands that should be reserved to them and for them are being encroached upon by government and businesses. Again, WOW!!
This is awesome. A school conformed to nature not nature having to conform itself to man-made things. I definitely need to take a page from this. I need to apply it both inwardly and outwardly to be one with nature as much as possible and when possible. Regardless to which faith, dogma, or religion one ascribes to, we all came from the earth and if we were to live and walk in harmony with nature, many of us would be further along in life, spiritually, myself included. However, this is a good read, pretty short. Hope it gets you thinking.
The double standard in our culture today. Why do we set the bar so high for some and not others? Why do we set a bar at all? We should not compare, differentiate, deliberately set apart people because of race, economic, gender, and/or faith status. When we accept people for whom they are and not for who they used to be or even who they aspire to be, we can then learn to love them and help them where they need help, when they ask for it and only intervene when they cannot help themselves. Let us walk in love.
