Due Diligence…Just Checkin’ In
Just checking in today…one of the traits of the internet, I’ve noticed, is that if a site (especially a fundraising site like this) falls dormant for too long, it effectively ceases to exist for many people since it’s not in their proximity radar.
Not I, I’m in it for the haul, as I’ve stated plenty of times before. My goal of modifying my Honda for wheelchair access isn’t a luxury or a ‘gee-it’d be-nice-to-have’ device, and it certainly isn’t frivolous. No, it’s an absolutely essential addition if I’m ever to recover a lot of my life that multiple sclerosis snatched away. Not a gripe, but a reminder; imagine yourself unable to accomplish the zillions of things you can do now without any real thought or effort. There’s just no way to use a disabled capable taxi for these, at a $40-$50 minimum or more per trip, that’d be an express ticket to the poorhouse. In even a clinical and emotionless view, I’m losing my humanity as this confinement continues by the unchanging and very limited factors of my existence, and I for one will be overjoyed once I recover that freedom of mobility and begin rebuilding my confidence in myself that’s been eroded simply through inability to do the things I can.
There’s so much going on in our world that I also feel a constant compulsion to get out and involve myself in it, interviewing, reporting on and just interacting with the public. I have no illusions that my input can effect huge changes for the better, but I’ve maintained for a long time that restoring and preserving liberty requires all of us to cooperate as best we can in promoting freedom to the majority of Americans still stuck in the vicious circle of conventional politics. I try to do what I can, occasionally writing and regularly broadcasting, with an emphasis on real world and viable means to combat the spreading darkness of tyranny. This is such a critical time for Americans and others around the world, and the forces of fear and control sure do seem overwhelming at times, but the alternative is to aquiesce and allow your consent to them, which is just unacceptable to me.
It’s important to repeatedly demonstrate that the goons are by no means as powerful as they’d like us to think they are, that they need us while we don’t need them at all…and the puffed up scary display is not only inaccurate, but serves as a distraction for the fact that we outnumber them by many orders of magnitude, and could peacefully dispose of them simply by withdrawing our consent to their lethal power crazed control. I’m pleased that after ages of recommending the film A Bug’s Life for showing how easily this can be communicated to people, and as I expected, someone had gone to the trouble of posting the salient clip, one more tool to deflate the propaganda. Thank goodness for YouTube!:
For the moment, I’ll keep doing that, while searching for ways to make my site and voice more visible and audible, the $11,000+ accrued over the past couple of years validates the notion that if I can reach new people, a small percentage will reliably contribute, even a little, to help.
So, I’ll keep on keeping on, and I know that sooner or later my persistence will pay off and I’ll get my freedom back.
I spend a lot of my time looking for great guests to speak with on the Freedom Finders show I host, and I think folks will like what’s in the works for future shows. The fundraiser itself continues, and I want to make sure that everyone knows that while the Grand Prizes for donors from time to time are available…or not…I like the idea of providing some immediate quid pro quo for anyone donating $4 or more, and I’ll keep sending the thank-you package of 4 really good original songs to these donors. Not only can you do a moral good by helping remedy an unjust situation, but you’ll get some immediate bang for the buck.
If you haven’t before, please drop a few bucks in the fund if you can, and tell your friends and family about this project, if you would. The sooner this gets done, the sooner I can get to work, limited though it is, on a much more effective level. Plus, I really hate being the public nuisance I’ve had to become and will be one very happy person when I no longer have to keep looking for that hand up.
Don’t forget that Freedom Finders show every Wednesday and Thursday evening beginning at 9PM Central/ 10PM Eastern, the best is yet to come!
