Screen Grab from the Dystonia Foundation … (Make September Dystonia Awareness Month)

PADUCAH, Kentucky – Primarily I’d like to hear from my Dystonia friends tonight but the question(s) I have are open. Meaning anyone outside of them is welcome to answer it as well. As a civil society we are better off with all points of view anyways, right?

I wondered tonight, posed the question(s) earlier on twitter today, “Where do you all stand on med. #marijuana? Helpful of harmful for #dystonia?” So far, I’ve only heard from one of my friends. So far.

A Medical Medusa overlaid a Marijuana Leaf …

Medical marijuana has cured, in fact its base, rather the marijuana plant’s base, THC has been known to cure thousands if not hundreds of thousands of diseases, cancers, seizures and more. Science, medicine are that much farther down the road of advancement toward the wonder-working power of this little green plant. It is, for all intents and purposes the peanut of its day.

Madame Marie Curie …

The late great Dr. George Washington Carver and Madame Marie Curie herself would dare to live to experiment on such a plant. Science and medicine herself are still unlocking its little green doors long after the bones of both such medical and scientific geniuses have passed from this life to the next.

So I’m wondering with the clearly devastating effects that this disease, dystonia, has on millions around the world, where my friends would stand on the encroachment of such a subject, such a possibility? Would the Dystonia Community be open to treatment of this disease by way of the cannabis plant and its component THC?

Leave me a comment guys.

Book Recommendation, In The Light of Ebola Epidemic …

Northeastern AFRICA – Newsmax Magazine On line REPORTS that the World Health Organization says they will see 10,000 Ebola Cases a week before December 1 this year. Unbelievable, if true!

In light of that fact and other far more mitigating circumstances I thought it invaluable, prudent to share a MUST GET, MUST READ book with you all today. “Emerging Viruses: AIDS & Ebola: Nature, Accident or Intentional?” By Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz, D.M.D.,M.P.H. ..

This book will open your eyes, your heart, your mind, your soul and your spirit to how the Governments of the United States and the World do business in your and my good name. Especially in light of the goings on in Africa, Mother Africa …

Continent of Africa … Mother Africa I’m deeply sorry that the White Man is STILL raping you… #StopRapingAfrica

Stop Raping Africa! Stop killing her people with infection, disease, famine, flood, pestilence, and more! More importantly CDC and World Health Organization STOP Experimenting on Us! Stop experimenting on Animals! It’s just craziness. Madness. The CDC and World Health Organization have inflicted and infected more hurt, harm and danger upon the world, at the behest of the United States of America, than any other “civic-minded,” organizations the world over. And that’s not saying much.

Arm your selves with the truth. Gird well your mind, and heart with the knowledge of the written and very well-informed words of Dr. Horowitz TO DAY. Thank you for reading. Follow and Share My Blog or Like this post below.

#Blog: “Support #DystoniaAwareness Month: A #WeThePeople #petition..” By Rhett E. Column; #SayWhatNews, #AXJ, #FreePress

dystoniascreengrab 2014

Screen Grab from the Dystonia Foundation … (Make September Dystonia Awareness Month) ..

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Recently I made some new social media friends, The Dystonia Foundation of America. The friendship has been my honor and my privilege to make. They have proved informative, educational and positive as we work toward both a cure and informing the World of this DISEASE.

Simply put and simply stated Dystonia disease is a neurological disease. Much like that of ALS or  Lou Gehrig’s disease. Often times crippling. Often times fatal. It renders our fellow human beings useless in so many ways and it is unfortunate.

My new social media friends reached out to me through twitter, and it has been a budding friendship ever since. But our interests in each other doesn’t end there. Instead I have decided to join arms with my new friends to  petition President Obama to make the Month of September National #DystoniaAwareness Month!

Although cures for this disease are rare and still limited in scope they are becoming more advanced as science and technology catches up with it. It is my sincere hope and fervent prayer that all who read this posting will join with us. Link arms. And work together to both fight this disease and make the World well aware of it. Thank you for your time and consideration always. Follow this and other blogs anytime here or to the right side of the post.

Peace.

REMOVE or RESIGN: Attorney Bob McCullouch MUST GO! #Ferguson, #JusticeForMikeBrown

Big Mike Brown

Michael Brown, Jr. …

FERGUSON TOWNSHIP, MO. — Early this morning I sat down at my computer and began to look up contact information for Missouri State Government Leadership.

The Reason: Justice for Mike Brown, Jr.

Once found I went to MoveOn.org and started this formal petition. Started, in this way, We, the undersigned of this petition are calling for Missouri Governor Jay Nixon to REMOVE Saint Louis Prosecuting Attorney Robert P. McCullouch from the adjudication of the Michael Brown, Jr. Case, for biases and prejudices, OR for Governor Nixon to RESIGN immediately for dereliction of duty, as Governor, by a failure to act as requested on behalf of the People of his State and in particular the Citizenship of Ferguson Township, MO. and Saint Louis County, MO. Michael Brown, Jr.’s funeral is going on right now as I right this blog post. Soon his family will officially lay their child to rest but the FACT REMAINS there has been no justice. No arrest of Officer Darren Wilson. No voluntary recusal of Attorney McCullouch. WHY?

There is no rhyme or reason for this injustice. Or for the simple, honorable requests of the Citizens of Ferguson and Saint Louis County to not be honored. For the death of Michael Brown, Jr. to be not in vain. Soon enough the media circus will pack up their clown cars, megaphones, and big top tents and move on to the next salacious story but Michael Brown, Jr.’s family and friends will remain. Injustice will remain, IF. Unless and until we as a Concerned Collective rise up in one accord agreement and make the Powers that Be in Jefferson City, MO. to LISTEN this injustice will remain unanswered.

Not to long ago I called upon the Citizens of Ferguson, Concerned Citizens of Missouri to MARCH 2 Jefferson City and take the petitions that they had originally signed for Attorney McCullouch to recuse himself from the Michael Brown Case voluntarily because of very real and serious concerns.

To give you a bit of background: Last week Citizens of Ferguson, Concerned Citizens of Missouri took those recusal petitions to Attorney McCullouch in Clayton, MO., to the Saint Louis County Courthouse, but and initially the citizens were denied entry into the courthouse by Clayton Police. Can you imagine? Denied access, denied entry into a public building? Their courthouse. Access denied. Justice delayed, is justice denied!

WHY? Answer: The powers that be just want this to go away. The death of Michael Brown, Jr., while tragic, is really not that big of a deal to them, after all it wasn’t their white child that was killed by police. Not that much to be overly concerned about. Frankly, and respectfully, “one less N***er to have to deal with and take care of in the world. Next. …” This, I promise you, is the attitude. The true and right approach of governance. Of leadership in the Show Me State. Because, and believe it or not, Missouri is STILL a, “Southern State”. Racism. Racists. ALL still abide. Bottom line. And unless and until we as a Concerned Collective remove it from the root. Remove it from our presence it will remain. It will abide and abound. Growing in exponential power.

And so Concerned Collective the Work of Justice IS NOT DONE. The Work of #JusticeForMikeBrown remains unfinished. His remains, though laid to rest, will not rest in peace until there is an answer given for his senseless death. Are you prepared to do the work? We welcome you openly.

Until then, “Good night and good luck #Ferguson …”

Invisible Illness MCS

From one of my #dystonia friends…

Originally posted on Of Storms and Peace:

I finally got over my writer’s block for this piece I was trying to write for and invisible illness project. I don’t know if it will suit their needs, so thought I would post it here as well.

As soon as the door of the Doctor’s office opened I was hit by a wall of smells making all my symptoms instantly worse. I gritted my teeth and went on in and waited uncomfortably for my name to be called. The minutes seemed to drag on forever. I just wanted to hurry up and be done so I could escape back outside into the fresh air.

You see, I have an invisible illness. It’s called MCS (multiple chemical sensitivity) it’s often misunderstood and under recognized. It causes fatigue, pain, migraines, and breathing problems to name a few… For me, it is also a trigger to make my twitches and spasms of…

Sign the petition to Lowe’s and Home Depot: Stop selling plants with bee-killing pesticides!

Bee pollinating flower

Lowe’s, Home Depot and other garden retailers are selling plants labeled as “bee-friendly,” leading customers to believe they’re helping bee populations thrive. However, our allies over at Friends of the Earth just released a study that reveals that more than half of these plants actually contain a pesticide that can harm or kill bees.

We need to get these bee-killing plants off store shelves. In order to do that, we’re combining forces with our allies and partners across the country to demand action. The plan is to deliver hundreds of thousands of petitions to Lowe’s and Home Depot next week.

[Human Condition NEWS] Round-Up from the Heart®

Folks!

As we get into the holiday season and get on the road to be with family & friends it is important to remember that many an American, many an American child will go hungry this holiday season.

That is why I am urging you and those you know and love, care so much about to consider making a one-time-only donation (perhaps even a month to month donation, some time in the near future.) to my friends at Feeding America / Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland …

They are great people! And will see that your financial contribution is used, wisely, down to the last possible penny.

They do yeoman work, almost daily, to feed those who cannot otherwise afford a decent meal much less a place to cook one in.

In soup kitchens, churches and community centers across the country they bring good, wholesome, healthy food to the mouths of the hungriest amongst us, the very least of these, and in so doing sustain and preserve a life meant for other things, other far more important things than going hungry.

Join us!

Join my friends and together lets help Feed America this year! Thank you and be well.

‘Derived from the consent of the governed.’ The Federal Building & US Courthouse in Paducah, Ky. What happened?

federal building in paducah, ky.

United States Courthouse and Federal Building in Paducah, Ky. ..

PADUCAH, Kentucky – It used to be that when one walked into the U.S. Courthouse and Federal Building at 501 Broadway in Paducah, Ky. you could see just about anyone. A judge. A clerk. A U.S. Secret Service Agent. Even an Agent with the F.B.I. It mattered not. You didn’t need an appointment. Didn’t need to get expressed written permission. Donate a kidney. You could, eons ago, walk in to the federal building and courthouse for the United States of America’s Department of Justice and see anybody and his brother.

Because everybody knew everybody, everybody was local. You ate dinner with the judge and breakfast with the U.S. Attorney for this court system. This district! Now, today, not so much.

Federal bankruptcy court conducted …

Last Friday I had to go to the courthouse for a meeting and to pick up some paperwork but because I didn’t have a ‘necessary pre-authorization’ to enter the building and specifically see someone, per the check-in station at the front door, I had to practically sign my life away with the duty desk for this once mighty oak in the recesses of the Ship of State. WHY? Answer: Who Am I? Why Me?

Yours Truly… Rhett E. Column; #SayWhatNews, #AXJ, #FreePress Correspondent …

Not to brag but ages and ages hence, long before Tuesday, 11 September 2001 I might add, I used to be somebody. Used to be able to walk right in the front door of places not unlike this one, without a ‘necessary pre-authorization’ notice, walk up to the second floor or hit the button on the main elevator to the top two floors and go see Judge So in So or U.S. Attorney So in So. And it mattered not what they may or may not be doing because 9 out of 10 times they were free and readily available to meet and speak to, despite the workload.

a working judge, 2014 ...

A Judge At Work …

So, I wonder what happened? Where did we go wrong? Who Am I? Why Me?

Just some of the many questions I have for the powers that be within our judicial system. Now I realize that I may not get to many answers. May get no answers at all given the fact that these days there’s been a U-Haul truck parked out back on the dock at the R.F.K. Main Justice Building these days.

‘Bedroom bookshelf right Mr. Holder?’

And so it goes…

But if I can’t get in my courthouse without giving the check-in guys a kidney imagine what it must be like for others.

It’s not an exacting quote but based on this speech and many others before and since this speech I should, anybody should, be able to get into my federal courthouse without having to give my blood type. Bottom line.

Yet, still and all that’s not the case! I am still, years later, years after the FACT that SEAL Team 6 put one in the head and two in the chest of the ‘Most Wanted and Hated Man in the Free World’ unable to gain access without ‘pre-authorization’.

Osama bin Laden …

WHY? I would venture to say, hazard a guess, whistle past the graveyard of discontent and say Mr. bin Laden has little to do with it. In fact I’d say it has to do with the fact that my wife has had her civil and human rights rooked from her by our United States Federal Government and I give more than a tinkers damn about it and because I do give more than a tinkers damn about it I am made to be persona non grad da down at the courthouse. Made to feel less than because I didn’t phone ahead according to their records. ‘Unaware of my supposed meeting and picking up of paperwork.’

A Mural of Truth …

And so it goes…

So while it is true that the United States Federal Building and Courthouse at 501 Broadway in Paducah, Ky. is but a shell of its once former glory. Such is not the case for lacking. It is because I am doing all I can to remind the so-called ‘powers that be’ that ‘power, truly is, derived from the consent of the governed.’

The David Patterson TRUTH Meme … Courtesy of the David Patterson for United States Senate 2014 Facebook Page & Campaign … http://www.david4senate.com

HARRODSBURG, Kentucky – This is the last best posting for today, since yesterday. And its to do with a follow-up on my series for U.S. Senate Candidate David Patterson here in Kentucky.

David, as you all know by now, is the 2014 Libertarian Candidate for United States Senate and he is being blacked out. CENSORED.

CENSORED by an Establishment, an Elite Ruling Class that is in its last hell-bent throes for power. Desperate to hang on to the last best vestiges of a bygone era of doing business and holding court over you and I.

Last night two of the six candidates for United States Senate here in Kentucky debated on Kentucky Educational Television (K.E.T.) for a little over an hour. Being careful, since it was their first, last, and only publicly televised debate, to do damage to each other but with reverent honor and distinction for the institution known as the United States Senate.

Grimes and McConnell got it on, so to speak, for all the marbles. Leaving nothing to chance. No political stone left unturned. No mountain top, peak or and perhaps even valley left uncharted.

And if you were an establishment person, an institution person McConnell and Grimes both did you proud. And now, now its up to you to decide. To get out and vote! Go to the polls and vote for your establishment candidate of choice. Home stretch and all. ‘Spahn and Sain and Pray for Rain.’

SpahnAndSain

Former Boston Braves Greats Warren Spahn & Johnny Sain …

That like the Boston Braves greats of old that somehow the Establishment, the Ruling Class of the Political Day has attempted to Spawn an Insane protactinium theory that McConnell and Lundergan-Grimes is all that there is under the bright sunshine of ‘Our Old Kentucky Home’ to choose from. That, that is it. That’s all. You, you just have to, well, I don’t think anyone but these two could demonstrate any better what it is that you are supposed to do on November the 4th 2014 fellow voter …

Team Mitch 2014

Former McConnell 2014 Campaign Manager Jesse R. Benton (left) and incumbent U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell, Republican-Kentucky (right)

Especially here in the Bluegrass State anyways…

That yeah, you know its painful. Like anything we had hoped to have you someone to choose from this year. We gave it the old college try in Primary 2013-2014 boy, we truly and surely did, but try as we may, try as we might we just couldn’t find anyone else any better than McConnell and Grimes, Grimes and McConnell. So, so that’s it. And so you’ll just have to go into the voting booth or up to your favorite electronic voting machine, and cast your lot with McConnell or Grimes.

This, this third-party stuff man, listen you, you just don’t wanna fool with any of that stuff man! Why you’ll just be a wastin’ your time is all. Not only that you’ll be a wastin’ your vote, thrownin’ it a way BIG TIME! And you don’t wanna do somethin’ as thick-headed as that now do ya? Well do ya?!

Third party vote smird thardy vote. Independent Kentucky, ha that’s a laugh! Sounds more like Kentucky horse pucky ta me is all. And it should be ta you too!

WHY, why a vote for one uh them guys and u’ll just be a votin’ for the guy, oh shucks I mean gal, that you, I mean us, I mean we, really don’t want up in their anyways. Sides she’ll just set Kentucky back 50 years in the Senatorial process ole Alison will. Just like Mitch has been a tryin’ ta tell us is all. Listen he’s, he’s established up there. Brings home the bacon and stuff. And if you cast your lot with Alison it’ll just leave ole Rand Paul up there all by his lonesome and you really don’t wanna do that to good ole Doc Rand Paul now do ya? Well do ya?!

Well alright then.. So c’mon now, let’s get this here thing ta gether, hold your nose, I mean,vote for Mitch McConnell for 6 more years, shut up about it and go away. Mitch u’ll decide, he’ll decide for himself whilst he’s up in Washington a representin’ you and me whether or not he wants ta re tire.

Sides he’s elderly and he needs more time to think! And 30 more, I mean six more years to decide a what he wants ta do is plenty a time.

And so it goes… Or so they want for it to go anyways!

But and alas you and I do have a choice. Choices galore when we go into that voting booth or approach that favorite electronic voting machine or even the old paper ballot on November the 4th… Especially here in Kentucky!

We have every opportunity. Every chance to change and in fact shift the political para dime on its very axis.

That is why between now and November the 4th 2014 I invite and encourage you to get to know the other, other guy. The little guy or gal that doesn’t have that D or R attached to their name.

That is not bought, sold, and traded to the highest Koch Brothers bid. That doesn’t pick up the phone and hit 1 for David Bossie every time a vote to REPEAL ‘Citizens United’ comes up in the United States Senate.

bossie msnbc photo

Mr. David Bossie, President and Founder of the Citizens United Group …

Someone that won’t be ‘beholden to the special interests in Washington’ truly! And that’s for real.

Across the country and throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky a slew of third-party candidates exists and is waiting for your vote!

SO, this year, this November the 4th, “Election Day 2014 in America”. VOTE! V-O-T-E… #VoteBetter, #VoteSmarter and #VoteLibertarian just to piss off the Establishment! #SeeYouAtThePolls

Until then, “Good night and good luck fellow voter…”

Peace.
