The Perfect slice……..

The perfect camp site where the only way to get to it is, drive a boat there loaded with your camping gear. I can’t say where it is, only because I don’t want to give away this hidden gem. You want peace and serenity? you will have plenty of it here, great place to unwind from the daily grind we all go through on our paths of our journey through life. Just sit and relax, while you breathe in the air which is the cleanest air you will ever breathe anywhere. The beauty of the Pines around you, while you set your tent on the carpet of the pine needles so soft that you will fall asleep as soon as you lay down. Set up your kitchen and dining area by the campfire at the waters edge, then enjoy breakfast with the sunrise and dinner by the sunset, it really doesn’t get any better than this. During the day go for walks and truly explore what is around you and have fun learning as you go. This is a campsite that truly is more beautiful than you can ever imagine, i have camped in a lot of places, even at 13,000 feet on a mountain in the Colorado Rockies, but this site? Now your talking a beauty of it’s own.

The Pine tree in the middle looked like it was just struck by lightening, judged by the freshness of the tree and the way it split down toward the bottom of the trunk, ¬† ¬†thank God I wasn’t around when the lightening struck, but when your camping deep within the woods around a lake as this, it is wise advice to always keep an eye to the sky and always be prepared for anything, including the presence of a Bear or two? True Camper’s who like the real primitive type of camping, aren’t wavered by these kind of threats, but they are well prepared for whatever situation that may cross their paths. For some their idea of camping is backing the trailer into a site and plugging into the electric and connecting the water hose for a flushing toilet? To me that is not camping, that is parking with all the comforts of home, true camping is to get out of your comfort zone and explore all that is around you, where you make your own enjoyment or simply just relax and clear your mind of all the crap within it, from the daily grind of this journey of life.

Camping is a sort of therapy, where it soothes your sole, clears the mind, so you can get back to truly being yourself, which is why the location of the site is the, or should be the number one priority. These big Public KOA campsites are okay, but your not going to get the same peace and serenity, like the campsite in the picture, the bigger campsites have daily activities laid out for you, but the whole idea behind real primitive camping is too escape the chains of our everyday life and be free, to explore, forget what time it is and just go with the flow, then learn to see the location of the sun in the sky and determine what time of day it is. We all walk a path through this journey of life and camping is a way to, clear our heads of all the crap in our daily lives, soothe the soul to truly relax, recharge our batteries, so we can get back to being who we truly are, instead of this fake portrayal of ourselves and pretending to be someone we are not.

 

” Camping isn’t just a way to relax or clear your head, it was a way of life at the beginning of Mankind”

” The Native Indians would camp everyday as they slept in their Tee Pee’s every night and made a camp fire for their Tribal rituals”

” The beauty of camping is to enjoy all there is around you”

” Camping for some is to back up the trailer and plug in the cord for their television and appliances, true camping is to unwind and get away from all the distractions”

 

The Power trip, that’s just a game.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Within every Government today throughout this Society, you have these Elected Officials that will stop at nothing, to gather the votes needed, so they can have this “Power Trip”, that does nothing but cushion their wallets, as they totally forget of who put them there in the first place.

We the People of this Society with our hard earned Tax dollars, are what controls the Government, but these Elected Officials forget that and totally think that the Government wouldn’t survive without their ideas. These men and woman within the Government will want the People to think they are on their side, but it is what goes on behind the closed doors, that truly gives these Officials their power trip and determines just how the game is played. These groups known as the Special Interest Groups simply buy each Candidate with very high prices of money just to vote a certain way, so their Organization can get all the benefits, over all the Ordinary Folk who drive this Government with their Tax dollars.

Then there is the size of the Government, with Committees made to support Committees……. do we really need all these Committees? Yes Government has grown two fold over the years and maybe it is time to downsize, like a Corporate Company does from time to time, to help in balancing their budget, reduce spending, so they can reduce their debt, which helps in increasing the profit margin. When the debt is reduced greatly with the profits going up, then you can reward the Tax paying Folk, with a nice Tax break, or even putting some tax cuts in place for the future of all. This should be the ” Common Sense” approach, but with all the Greed going on within our Elected Officials, they have lost touch with Common Sense and also, they have become disconnected from everything that is real around them.

You also have the two Party rule with the Democrats and the Republicans, these two Parties are controlled by the Establishments in power, ” The Establishment” is nothing more than Individuals with huge Ego’s, that want all the power and money and will treat all others as their Puppets just to get what they want. Just maybe our Government isn’t really controlled by who we vote for and put into office? Maybe it’s the Ego driven Establishment that really drives what goes on within our Government? The time is now for each of us as Individuals to step up to the plate and vote smarter, to put the power back in the hands of who really drives this Country and who makes this Country great, that being the hard working People that pay their taxes into the Governments, either being the State for which they live and the Federal of this great Country, the United States of America.

The Individuals we vote into our Governments, go into office and play the Power game not just with the other Elected Officials, but with the People that put them there, they each want all the power to feed their Ego’s, then become disconnected with everything else around them. With the feeding of the Ego’s, then follows the Greed which is fed to them by the Special Interest Groups, these Groups are supported by the Corporations with an endless amount of money, to get whatever they want and the ordinary Taxpayer will never see this amount of money, as they walk their paths through this journey of life.

 

” The Washington power game is only a game that you can play if you have great amounts of money”

” The Establishment is merely a group of Individuals with huge Ego’s that treat all others as they are their Puppets”

” Are they really elected officials that work for the people, or do they say scripted things told by the establishment in order to be elected to office”

 

As American as Apple Pie

The American Dream……… The true American Dream does not come as easy as we think it does, it takes very hard work on all our parts and it will never be handed to you on a silver platter. It is a lot more than the nice house with a white picket fence out front, the two cars within the garage, the families we help support and raise, the true American Dream comes with respect and dignity that is earned with hard work, which is something this Society has forgotten.

Within these pictures you have one with flowers, the other to some simply looks like a dirt road, with no vibrancy. The true American Dream starts as the dirt road and with hard work on all our parts, we all can see the beauty of the flowers, the Dream will never start with the flowers and if it does, then you will never know what it is to achieve the Respect and Dignity that follows the hard work.

The true American Dream has become lost within this lazy, I want it now Society. We all have become so lazy that we want everything given to us and have lost what the words ” hard work” really means. There is so much crap around us now a days, that it is harder to look deeply into what we see. Then you have to deal with the big Ego’s of some, that want nothing more but control everything around them and will do anything to get that power. It is never more clear than this Presidential race of 2016. The Establishments of both Parties want to control everything and have all of us as their Puppets. It does not happen this way and when it does, there is no more respect and dignity within this Society, which is why the true American Dream has become lost within the clouds of all our judgments.

The American Dream used to be as American as Apple pie and going to a Ball game, but with all the “Illegal” Immigrants coming here in droves, stealing all our jobs, how are we suppose to find a good job, so we can work hard in achieving the true American Dream? With all the Companies leaving and going to other Countries then selling their product back here, makes it even harder to find a good job, but yet they want us to buy their product? If we are not working than we can’t buy anything, let alone achieve the true American Dream. I understand the fact that America was built on and by Immigrants, but it was Immigrants that did it the right way, with a dream and that dream became the American Dream, when this continent became known as the United States of America. These Immigrants also worked very hard for their Dream to become a reality and without this hard work, America might not even of become America.

The time is now for each of us to look deeply into what we see, get back to the hard work that built this Country, get rid of the clouds surrounding our judgments and stop looking for the free ride that never comes. We also have to stop stepping on another mans shine and trying to become more powerful than the other. America was great then and it can be great again when we do it correctly, as we all walk our paths of this journey through life correctly, plus we all can enjoy what the American Dream truly stands for, while we all live in peace and happiness, being better and stronger moving forward.

 

” The American Dream takes hard work and dedication to achieve the goals of respect and dignity”

” Without the respect and dignity there is no dream, which then breeds other crap that is not truly who we are”

” Apple pie and Baseball are only the perks of living the American Dream, with the true American Dream these two don’t exist”

 

Play the Superbowl already!!!

The Superbowl is arguably the biggest sporting event of the year, within all the sports that are played throughout. We as fans have to live through all the Media hype, then deal with all the conspiracy theories of the sports media world, who if you haven’t noticed, know everything about every sport? Lets not forget all the millions spent by the Corporate world, just so they can get our attention of their product/products, then oh yea!! there is a Superbowl half time show, that in recent years have flopped bigger than Peyton Manning did, in last years Superbowl.

Those who enjoy the game of football and know the game of football, know that to get to the game, they have to tune out all the Drama in the week before the big game, lets not forget the players who are trying to practice and focus on executing every snap, so they can help their team win the game. Yes the NFL try’s to put their best foot forward, so they can attract more viewers to their product, what is their product? The player’s and the organizations that bring in the players, so they can try to win the Lombardi trophy. Football is a brand, just like an I-phone is the brand of the company Apple. With all the effort that goes into Superbowl week and all the money spent in preparation of the Superbowl, not to mention the money spent on all the TV. Ads during the big game, one would wonder what would happen, if this money was spent on building this great country and to help make Society better and stronger, for all that walk their path along their journey of life.

Football is a game, but it is a game that brings in huge amounts of money to the NFL(national football league). This isn’t even touching the betting part of the game through Vegas, when you add in this money, it dwarfs the amount the NFL brings in, through the betting side, lets just say the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Any kind of betting in any sport, is a chance anybody takes, with only a few actually making back plus, what they originally put in to the bet, then the ones that lose the bet, only bring out the hate on the team that cost them their bet, common sense will tell you that, if you don’t place the bet and just enjoy the game as a game, then you have nothing to hate and you can enjoy the game you are watching.

When you really think about the Superbowl and are really in touch with your empathetic side, you will truly see that, if a percentage of this money spent just on a game and spent wisely to help all throughout Society, just maybe our Society will become better for all. Instead of all the Companies and yes the NFL is a company also, would spend more money on training and hiring of more employees instead of cutting jobs, they will actually have more production and make more money than they are actually making now. It doesn’t take a Rocket Scientist to figure out that, football is a game and a game that brings in big money, just so a few can squander the money away from the ones that need it most. I like football and yes I have my favorite team, only that my true sport that i love more is Hockey. The difference between someone that likes a sport and someone that loves a sport is, the passion for the game and the knowledge you have of that sport. The passion and the knowledge is what gives you the energy to know the game within the game, understand that the sport is a business first and a sport second, each owner of any sport has to make money, so they can bring in the players needed to win a championship, but what most tend to forget? Money don’t buy the championship, you need the right players that play well with each other and form a bond for each other, the chemistry of the players is bigger than the actual money, cause without the chemistry the money spent is wasted money.

” The Superbowl is the biggest game of the year for any sport, but the hype and the money spent is bigger than the actual game itself”

” Football is a game that most get lost in, simply cause they truly don’t understand the game inside the game”

” football is a game of strategy, that which ever team has the best strategy on game day, will win that game on that day”
