Fair MY Royal Hinie, Rose Quartz, and Pretty in Air Pollution

First off --
The Fairness Doctrine is back and if we don't stop it and stop it now the only news you will get online or off will be under hard fisted censorship. If you think it's outrageous that all the mainstream media is now is a huge private advertising campaign, how do you think you'll like it when blogs ( this one) get zapped because they say something we aren't allowed to say - not allowed to know. There isn't anything fair about this doctrine - just another fancy, sweet, comfy name to disguise the stench and venom of a Fascist rule. This is it. Stop it now or forever hold your peace - or go to jail if you aren't good at keeping your real thoughts out of print or off radio waves. If you don't know who to contact in your state, go to and you can find out who all your state representatives are and their contact information. This is important stuff people - we need EVERYONE to stay free, not just a few who you think can do it for you.

Okay - on to the stuff the rockhounds and green zoners want to know.

With the sun shining and temperatures soaring to the high 40's it just seemed right to get my daily dose of Vitamin D on the mountain tops North of town yesterday. I've only been here (Wenatchee, WA) a bit over a month and we've had snow most of the time so I haven't gotten to do a lot of rockhounding yet and everything here is new territory to explore.

It was awesome on the mountain. Still a bit chilly but not freezing. A bit muddy, too but dry enough to be walkable. Munch and I (Munchie is my pet rot and best pal) strolled around the top where it's more like walking gentle hills than climbing mountains - getting there is a heck of a haul though. This mountain (Burch) is practically made of quartz from what I can see. Not one drop of agate, jasper, or crystals that I could find but I did pick up a few real nice chunks of rose quartz. To be honest I've seen better ones - none compares to the rose quartz in S. Dakota, but this was nice so I brought a couple of chunks home. At least I got to bring something back even if it only makes it to the rock garden out front. Not bad for winter in the North. There are metal flakes in the quartz in some places, too. Some of it's mica, but there's also pyrite so I'm in the mind that somewhere in the streams downhill there might be some gold. There is gold in this area - I live about a mile or two from the old gold mine.

While I was on top I also had one awesome view of the town below. It's not that large of a town, maybe 40 thousand at the top of the numbers, but more likely closer to 30 thou. The layer of smog coating the town was astounding though........and, yep, oh yeah - here comes the rant.........

How the heck can anyone with one drop of sanity worry about C02 - which is not a pollutant, but a natural gas that is actually necessary for plants and protects them during times of warming - when there is so damned much other crap in the air? This town is a canyon/valley so the crap gets trapped, but it's still in our planetary air once it gets blown off. . Factory soot with god knows what in it - carbon monoxide, which IS a pollutant and a very toxic one at that, for just a few examples. Fortunately for us, it only collects like this once in a while when it's real cold; there's a lot of people who live in that crap 24/7.

It' really makes me wonder what people are thinking when they live in or go to cities where the air is like that all the time and then they talk about not wearing make-up because it's not good for their skin. Got big news here - make-up is a lot better for your skin than that crap presuming you are using the right make-ups without any hardcore toxic chemicals in it. You wouldn't catch me out dead without make-up walking around in that pollution.

Sure, yeah, make-up can choke your pores - but I'd rather have a bit of talc in my pores than that black gunk in the air choking them. I know the ingredients in my make-up and they are non-toxic. I know the chemicals in that smog are toxic. It isn't bad enough that the smog will coat your skin -some of it can soak in and cause some major damage. I'd much rather have that stuff coating a protective layer of non-toxic make-up than my skin where it can process me into a facsimile of someone auditioning for a spot in a California Raisins commercial.

So if you are running around being green by not wearing make-up you better think twice about the condition of the air in your area. If you wipe your face when you come home and your washcloth has black on it, you'd be doing yourself one fine favor to go grab yourself some nice non-toxic, cruelty free (not tested on animals) make-up. It will protect you from the poison while making you look alluring...uh...if you apply it right. Some of it can even protect you a bit from sun rays so you won't be tempted to slap any of that highly toxic sunscreen all over yourself.

If you are worried about make-up clogging your pores, rest assured, it won't clog them any worse than the toxins in the air. The trick is washing it off. You need to wash it off well. I can't tell you anything further about that because it's in my skin care guide and, darned it, call me greedy, but I am not giving away ALL of my secrets free. The main point, anyway, is that it's good to be green, but still need to use some common sense about it. The earth has become a toxic waste dump and you need to think about whether what you are doing for yourself is really as productive as it might seem to be on the surface.

Secession, Sunscreen and Irony

Okay, I guess I have this thing working, remedially at best, but working.

It's a bit hard to be a techno-idiot in this day and age. It's a bit hard to try to live without technology though, even if it baffles you. We have kinda gotten way from what's real in a major way. If you don't think so just look around at everyone who our politicians have thinking these bailouts" and "sustenance packages" are actually a good thing. Thank God the situation has gotten so bizarre that people are starting to smell the coffee. Now it's just a matter of getting word out when we find the little piles of BS that have been spread around to infect us. I'm out to toss a few of those piles back in the owner's yards in here. So pick up a shovel and and come along with me and help clean up this mess.

Congratulations - New Hampshire on your Secession Bill, Resolution 6. Hopefully, the rest of us will be falling in line behind you before all guns are only owned by our military and police and pointed our way as our kids sing Obama anthems while they march along to their forced public service duties or, if they are old enough, the military, because by that time all that proposed excitement comes down we sure won't be allowed to say much about it.

I keep hearing people wishing their politicians would "learn" but nobody seems all to interested in doing any teaching. Just bitch at em and then re-elect em and let em raise their own salaries practically yearly. My question is when will the PEOPLE start learning? Thought we did that during WWII but it seems I am mistaken. The Bushes would have never have set foot on US soil again let alone take the highest office had that been true. If you're happy grazing and chewing your cud on the way to the slaughterhouse, this blog isn't gonna be for you.

It's time for everyone to call, fax, mail, or email your reps and tell them to get your state resolutions up and running, too. Everyone wants American Freedoms - Everyone needs to stand up for them - yeah that means you, too. Even someone totally worthless can write an email.
You can find your reps at:

Somewhere down the line someone was able to rig us up to believe that the only way to have value in our lives was to own more than the guy next door. It's backfired in a darned big way. People will buy any crap that they are told to buy now - no matter what it will do to you. Look at sunscreen -- oh yeah, for those of you who know me, you know I'm on my way to one major rant -- so why don't I just get to it.

I saw this commercial on tv yesterday for this event - a walk to protest breast cancer. Yep - we are doing our part to "speak out against breast cancer". Bet that cancer will just run when it sees we are speaking out against it. I am betting a bit further than half of the people involved in this silliness will be just smearing on the sunscreen while they walk. Yep - go out and slap on a good coat of the very stuff that is now linked to elevations of breast cancer and all other forms of reproductive system diseases and malformities to protest the diseases. That's logic American Style. Hallelujeah.

Not only do sunscreens have tons of synthetic chemicals that mimic estrogen (yeah slap a good dose on your little boys, too) but also a nice bunch of carcinogenics and some stuff that alters DNA and fudges up your genes as well. It also keeps your body from absorbing Vitamin D3 from the sun. Deficiencies of this vitamin/hormone/regulator is deadly. If you are in doubt about that just take a look at the stats that show how diseases and syndromes of all sorts are on the rise and parallel the rise in the use of sunscreen.

So why don't we hear about it? After all the medical community supports it (although many doctors and health institutions are now changing their minds) and the FDA approves it. Well - look at how much money the manufacturers are spending to get it out to us. They spend fortunes that could support whole communities to lobby for it. If you attend an FDA event related to the study or approval of this toxic waste you will quickly find that it was funded by the very sunscreen manufacturers that the FDA is supposed to be monitoring. Guess who funds research on the products? Gives grants to researcher? Supports our Educational factions?

Somehow, the pandemic disease and malaise caused by Sunscreen/Vitamin D3 deficiency finally got so alarming that independent research got into the picture. Somehow this REAL information started getting to doctors and to the public and it's spreading, but obviously not fast enough - because we've got a whole bunch of women in pink t-shirts on the MARCH against breast cancer, slathering sunscreen all over themselves so they don't accidentally get any of that healing Vit D3 that could save them from it.

Now forgive me for not thinking more highly of the people actually misled enough to actually waste their time participating in this event as I know they are just responding as our money sucking non-profit sectors have conditioned them to,'t it make more sense to see these pink shirts all gathered at the steps of the FDA building screaming their lungs out about the sanctioned use of deadly chemicals in their skin care products? I mean, if you're going to fight the disease, shouldn't you go after the faction that is responsible for the proliferation of the very crap that causes it? Can't you can feel just as good about marching in ways that really might make a difference as you can marching in some half-assed show that isn't going to do much of anything but raise more money to sustain non-profit staffs. How bout marching to raise money to lobby the hell out of Congress to do something about the out-of-control favoritism for the money of the sunscreen manufacturers? Match em buck for buck and maybe we'd get something done, eh?

Of course, if we wanted to be real smart about the whole situation, we'd just boycott sunscreen manufacturers in the first place.

Sure - some people burn easily and some are gonna be in the sun longer than is good for their skin, but how about letting your body get an adequate amount of Vitamin D3 before applying protection - and then use natural blockers that won't make you sick as a dog or kill you - or stick on a wide brimmed hat and some clothes when you've had enough sun and just forget about painting any goop on yourself for a change, just in case 5 years from now you find out it is deadly. Maybe when you've had enough sun you might just consider moving into shaded areas?

Well that's my take on it all. Go ahead and have your marches and make a show out of it. Support your local non-profits no matter where their money goes or how much value they are adding to life with them. Do as you are programmed to do, put your money where you are programed to put it. Use whatever products are pitched to you by a corporately controlled Medical community, FDA, Government, and Media.

When you are really serious about breast cancer - or any other disease, maybe just stop using the crap that's gonna give it to you. When you are tired of the BS - get rid of anyone at the top that slings it. If people are getting sick in ways or numbers that people didn't used to get sick you can bet your sweet toxins that there is a Corporation behind it and a Government approval to back them up if there's money in it for them. You can bet BS supporting causes of illness will infilter into every bit of information you read or hear at all levels of "public interest".

The bottom line is that if people start getting sick en mass in ways they didn't before - look to what chemicals and products are being pumped into them that weren't before, then spread that word everywhere you can spread it. With enough of us finding truth, they can't kill us with lies.

Hi Everyone

Just getting set up right now - I'll be back in a minute.
The sun is shining so I'm gonna soak up some Vitamin D3 while I have the chance.
The computer is always here - sunshine isn't. Trust me on that one.
