A Bit of an Update, and Some Positive Gains!

https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/994768_10151664961542381_1848221376_n.jpg

When last I posted, my chief concern was the possibility that the local Council on Aging and Disability might be considering removing me from their client list. That could put a big stick in my spokes, so I spent some time on the phone with the supervisor of my case at the Council. I think she’s a decent sort, one who recognizes the inherent flaws in the system and who like many is trying to change things for the better from within.

Apart from the alarm in her voice at finding I’d heard about these ‘budget cuts’ and querying me about my sources…which I respectfully declined to answer; no journalist reveals his/her sources…it was an interesting and somewhat reassuring talk.

My supervisor assured me that while the Council is indeed under all kinds of pressure to cut costs and minimize outlays, a person with as legitimate a need as mine for the services they provide, especially at the minimal level I use, need not worry about being removed. Yes, they’re cutting costs and taking a good hard look at each case to assure that obvious players who are gaming the system and don’t actually need help are removed, there aren’t any plans to remove me.

That’s good news, but it doesn’t change the fact that the vast empire of debt and death (as Chris Duane aptly puts it) is collapsing, the dollar is fast losing its status as the world’s reserve currency, and sooner or later I will be left to fend for myself as it falls apart.

I’m glad the urgency is reduced, but it also doesn’t change the fact that I just won’t be physically able to fend for myself until my liberty of movement’s restored. I try and keep as upbeat as possible, but I confess this confinmement is doing me damage. I am well aware that I have some of the best friends and allies trying to help me get free, but there are times when I have to fight off periods of despair as  my life continues to bleed out, never to be regained. Then, too, there’s the frustration that I’m certain that I can make a difference even in a minor way…once I’m released. The to-do list of things I feel compelled to address, from establishing a dynamic relationship with the local county sheriff’s office, to following up on essays I’ve written, to confronting politicians and functionaries at the state Capitol and nearby counties, grows all the time.

Being human, the bleak reality does at times threaten to overwhelm me, I confess, especially in the quiet watches of the night when I’m alone with my thoughts. These moments pass sooner or later, and I often remind myself that I’m most definitely not alone in this, that hundreds of people of good will have contributed…and more are coming as I can reach them. Patience is something I’m learning more about all the time, and remembering that all the good I’ve seen so far is sure no fluke, especially since my appeal to the public is completely voluntary and no one owes me a thing…yet they choose freely to help. THAT is a big comfort.

Still, I have to remind everyone that the job’s not done yet. But apart from any altruistic impulses I’m giving donors an outlet for, there’s plenty of quid pro quo to help persuade the public to help thanks to the wonderful musical talents who’ve provided their creations to include in the thank-you package for everyone donating $4 or more, and April Reigne is contributing another copy of the Constitutional cases and materials book for the next Grand Prize drawing in a month or thereabouts. Brian Shadis’ superb work in crafting the above banner graphic makes it all more eye catching…thank you, Brian!…so no matter that I may get bummed from time to time, I know in my heart this effort’s going to succeed. Hey, it’s my life here, and as the cliche goes, ‘failure is not an option!’

Out and About

https://i2.wp.com/www.goradiocontrolled.com/acatalog/ChampImage4.jpg

Finally, after week after week of cruddy, rainy, cold and/or windy weather, I awoke from my nap just after dawn to find a lovely morning Out There.

Perfect flying weather, thought I, so I grabbed my trusty micro Aeronca Champ, my transmitter in its case with some freshly charged single cell batteries, and headed out. It wasn’t long before I felt the gusty breeze and saw the treetops tossing a bit that told me there would be no flying…a 1.3 ounce aircraft just doesn’t fare too well in a blustery wind, and given that it was my first outing of the season and I’m out of practice, I wasn’t about to risk injury to the plane.

No worries, I was out on a pretty day for the first time since late autumn. This was no time to squander it by returning home, so I pressed on to the bowling alley’s parking lot a mile away. Once in a great while the air warmed by the sun will counterbalance the system driving it to yield a net calming of the wind but today it only increased the wind’s velocity and the air’s instability. Big whoop…I was OUT, and it was glorious.

I spent an hour or so soaking up sunlight and feeling the free wind on my face, remembering that this was just a taste of what I’ll be able to experience once I’m freed from confinement. While there I experienced a reminder of why I like Tennessee so much; a nice older lady driving by stopped to inquire if all was well and if I needed any help. That’s honest human nature at work…she stopped because she wanted to, not because anyone had coerced or pushed her into doing so. Yet again I was confronted with another reminder that Americans are some of the most giving and helpful people around, giving the lie to our dismal coerced ‘charitable’ Welfare State that extracts resources from productive people at gunpoint to give itself the appearance of altruism, while even more wealth is stolen from ordinary people to continue America’s perpetual wars of aggression in the Warfare State.

This led me to thoughts of another captive, Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, the American POW I’ve written about before. Does he have days like I did today from time to time on nice days in Afghanistan? Does he wonder when he’ll quit being used as a political pawn so he can go home and get on with his life? I feel a lot of affinity with Bowe; the circumstances couldn’t be more different, but with all of the parallels I can’t help feeling some empathy for a man who’s lost four years of his life to captivity.

Unjust imprisonment sucks, pure and simple. Americans to a great degree have been held captive by the many schemes, scams and other dirty work foisted upon them by the arrogant elites, even when they aren’t physically restrained as I’ve been. I really would like the opportunity to get out of my fix and do what I can to reverse these crimes against my fellows. I’m trying my best from my desk, but four years of being stuck is having its effect; without the ability to get to work facing these people and communicating with the public it’s slowing me down and draining more precious energy I can’t afford to waste. Some days I feel sludgy, almost as if I’m trying to swim in pudding.

I hope you’ll donate whatever you can spare to Get Glenn Mobile! and tell your friends this is a worthwhile and legitimate cause. Those endorsement videos by high profile academics, artists and veterans wouldn’t have come about if the people who made them had any doubts that I’ll be a whole lot more useful out in the dynamic world of the living than trapped here at home. I hope you’ll be persuaded as well…we’re over $10,000 of the way to achieving the goal, and the sooner it’s met, the sooner I’ll be able to get busy working towards liberty for all of us!

Upping the Ante

So, today we see multiple bombs going off at the Boston Marathon.

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BH6kFLDCQAAcSDO.jpg

Also, earlier this week one of my fellow hosts at WeROAR was found dead. Details are sketchy, but he was 50ish and from what little I’ve gathered had no significant health issues. It may not mean a thing, may be pure coincidence, but from a totalitarian control freak’s perspective, it’s mighty damn convenient.

Folks, I’m still stuck here like a fly on flypaper. I’m not posting this stuff as a gimmick, but because I’m seriously creeped out. If there is a false flag op going on and a possible purge of loudmouths like me to take pressure off the goons, I’m easy meat.

PLEASE, can we get this fundraiser finished so I can at least reposition with my mom if necessary? I’m fully aware that no one owes me anything. I know a dietary change might well help me to some degree. But until I have the liberty that comes from the freedom of mobility, there isn’t a single thing I can do about any of it at the moment.

I’d like to keep pointing out the facts for the American people in an effort to better this country for everyone’s benefit…but right now I feel like I’m stuck on the railroad tracks with a train coming. I won’t be very effective at that task if it squashes me, and just at the moment I’m feeling mighty squashable. If you’ve considered donating even a small amount, and/or telling your friends about this project, NOW would be a really opportune time.

Thanks to all of you who’ve contributed in one way or another to Get Glenn Mobile! for your part in raising the over $10,000 in hand; now we just need to finish the job.

Alex Jones Hangs Up on My Call AND Throws Ethan Huff To the Wolves?!?

https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/580545_606283652720348_599848964_n.jpg

The other day I found myself in a conference call, shooting the breeze with a couple of WeROAR hosts including the site’s webmistress April Reigne after she’d just concluded an interview that mentioned Alex Jones’ tendency to run with alarmist topics. As I had some personal experience here, seeing his staff reporter Ethan Huff reference the article I wrote last year dealing with the dreadful persecution Andrew Wordes suffered at the hands of city officials in Roswell, Georgia that culminated in his fiery suicide.

In my essay, I discussed the possibility that Roswell might have been motivated to take Andrew’s property as part of a long-term land use scheme, but that ultimately after hearing from his friends and neighbors it became clear that the Roswell officials conducted their campaign to harass and ruin Andrew simply because they were a bunch of spiteful creeps who had the power to do so.

To my mind, this is an even greater threat than an external hazard posed by the U.N. and its Agenda 21 schemes, since it demonstrated the banal evil that power crazed government officials often demonstrate in an arbitrary and capricious way, but Mr. Huff and then Alex Jones skewed my point into a screed against Agenda 21, focusing only on this in the Infowars articles and on Alex’ show.
At this point, April decided we should call Alex while he was on air to set the record straight. After being on hold for ages, I got to speak with Alex, but as soon as he perceived my point, he refused to discuss it, acting as if I’d made vile imprecations against him, and muted me before hanging up. Most surprising, though, he claimed Ethan Huff wasn’t an Infowars contributor, which April quickly showed was false by pulling up articles written as recently as a couple of days earlier!

See and hear for yourselves from this excerpt that April posted…not only did Alex’ arrogance in refusing to discuss the subject preclude any constructive discussion of the dangers all Americans face from bureaucrats acting with reckless abandon to destroy peoples’ lives, a genuine domestic enemy we should all be aware of, but he also defamed Ethan Huff, whose only offense had been to skew the story…but who did credit my article as reference to allow people to decide for themselves the facts.
I appreciate Alex’ contributions to wake people up and clue them in to the real dangers of the world we live in, but his flamboyant showmanship seems to be dominating his stated purpose of pursuing the truth. I’m a bit disappointed here, but I’m glad April made sure people could see how it went down from our perspective…thank you, April!
As I enter my fourth year of housebound confinement due to physical disability, I am getting frantic to escape and do what I can to further folks’ awareness of ALL of the serious dangers we face as Americans, not to mention rejoining the land of the living. Won’t you please consider making even a small donation to help me?

The Music City Liberty Fest: Don’t Miss This One!

liberty fest

My friend Dan Hagen had some thoughts earlier this summer while we discussed the headway the liberty movement was making and how infectious the desire for freedom clearly was for so many Americans, as evidenced how thoroughly and speedily an event like Paul Fest had overshadowed the RNC in Tampa. It isn’t much of a leap from that to wanting to see more events like it all across the country (as lots of people have) celebrating and promoting liberty as vigorously as Ron Paul has so ably demonstrated is so good so but since Dan has the soul of a producer along with his musical talent (entirely a good thing, I think), he wasted no time in delving into the nuts and bolts of what it would take to make one happen right here in Nashville.

I don’t have the time to detail all of the wonderful and talented people who jumped on board the project without having to think twice, not to mention I’d end up kicking myself for every single person I neglected to list.

Yep, a total cop-out on my part, but when you see the impressive number of people involved with the development of the Music City Liberty Fest just on their Facebook page I think you’ll understand why I’m not going to tackle the subject. In the couple of months since I heard the first rumblings about it, the Music City Liberty Fest has developed into a solid venture. I’ve been privileged to assist in this by writing some copy for the Facebook page and helping with the editing and composition of the official press release to alert the public of the approaching event and I can tell you that this promises to be a real spectacle.

The Music City Liberty Fest was shaping up to be just the sort of happening that’s been a bittersweet thing for me in recent years, one that I’ve been delighted to support while simultaneously lamenting my inability to attend because of my small radius of movement…the issue that led to my beginning this blog and my Get Glenn Mobile fundraiser. I’d never hesitate to do all I could to let people know about great events…it’s just the right thing to do…but I confess it’s been a bit painful watching each come and go while stuck in my home here.

Not this time.

Imagine my happy surprise when Dan phoned me the other day to let me know that the Liberty Fest team had arranged for a disabled-capable taxi to bring me to and from the event, something I really can’t budget for on my own (and of course would not spend any of my donated funds for; they’re sacrosanct and will only go for the intended purpose of modifying my Honda) and had expected I’d have to miss. This is perfect on several levels, besides attending something I’m really interested in for the first time in years myself, it will break me out of the rut I’ve been in and hopefully also be an opportunity for me to raise some awareness of my situation and accelerate the fundraiser to secure my release from this long confinement.

Take a look at the latest flyer…with this lineup of musical artists and speakers, the Music City Liberty Fest is truly a can’t-miss celebration of liberty! While you’re at it, won’t you please drop a donation of any amount you can comfortably part with in my Indiegogo campaign to help restore my own liberty?

Taste of Freedom

The heat wave continues here in Nashville, but the mornings have been pleasant this week, not the awful steam bath they’ve been for the better part of two months. It’s been so ugly that it’s kept me cooped up as I was all winter…which isn’t a help when I’m trying to avoid going utterly stir crazy!
Being able to get out this week’s been therapeutic, blowing the cobwebs out of my brain and helping me get my mind right. Just being out in the world is a delight, and being able to give my reflexes and reaction time a good workout through flying my small R/C aircraft is a healthy thing. I repeat: these aren’t toys, but flying aircraft that respond instantly to every subtle control input. Please, whatever you do…don’t call them drones.

All this in a tiny and very portable package of foam and electronics that weighs just over an ounce is still a miraculous thing for me. Remember, aircraft like these were only a pipe dream just a few years earlier.

Despite the wonderful boost being able to participate in aeromodelling provides me, it remains just a taste of liberty that will only be restored to my life once fundraising is complete and I can get out of here in my Honda. I hope everyone out there is current with the state of the Indiegogo campaign and is aware that it will continue until it’s complete. Period. I’m relying on you, my friends and allies in the liberty movement to prove to the world how effective peaceful voluntary action can be in resolving situations like mine in their communities. We’re approahing the halfway mark…we can complete this quickly with your help!

Just A Reminder

radioio Bubba ONE live

If you missed my last post, I’m scheduled to appear tonight on ‘Dangerous Conversation’ with host Scott Ledger. Judging from my friend Dan Hagen‘s interview with him a few days ago, I expect a seriously fun time!

If you’re inclined, tune in tonight at 8PM CDT at Radio IO, and if you’re unable to make it then, the show’s rebroadcast on their ‘Bubba Two’ channel three hours later, that’s 11PM CDT.

See ya there!

EDIT: I just noticed that my initial Skype contact with Radio IO has a mention of the ‘interview tonight at 9p’ away from the main body of the message, so it looks like I’ll be on at 9 Central time with the rebroadcast at midnight, apologies for the oversight!

EDIT again…Whoops, maybe not, it’s 8:18 CDT and I’m up next

MY Matching Challenge As Inspired by Dr. Thomas E. Woods..and Yes, I’m Serious.

It took about a week for me to write an appropriate thank-you note to Dr. Thomas  E. Woods for his amazing matching challenge he issued on his Facebook page and on his web site’s blog on May 26th. If you missed it, at 10:20am Central Time on that day he challenged his readers to donate $1000 within the hour to Get Glenn Mobile!, and if they would, he’d match it.

Guess what. One of his Facebook readers did donate that thousand bucks not only within the hour but in under 15 minutes from the time the challenge was issued, I might add…and Tom Woods matched it.

Among all of the other donations that have resulted from the awareness-raising efforts of my friends and allies, especially the incomparable Tatiana Moroz, Nick Allison and Adam House of the Combat Veterans for Ron Paul, Jordan Page, and Jason Rink with their endorsement videos they appeared in with Tatiana, as well as others who’ve helped spread the word like Dennis Behreandt of the American Daily Herald and many more, the $2000 from these two gentlemen is the record setting highest.

While trying to find the right words for my note to Dr. Woods, I also found myself wondering just how in the heck could one top that matching offer…incredibly generous as it was, we’re still at about 1/3 of the needed funds to modify my Honda for wheelchair access, and not only is this prolonged confinement doing me real harm, but the clock is ticking if I’m to have even a hope of joining my brothers and friends at the RNC in Tampa in August.

An idea finally percolated through the olive loaf that passes for my brain. I think it’s a pretty good one, too, a challenge of my own that might just result in finishing my goal here in time.

I wrote that thank-you note to Dr. Woods a couple of days ago and included this idea with it. I haven’t heard back from him; either he’s as incredibly busy as usual (likeliest) or he’s burned out from seeing my name (very possible…I hope not but I’ve had to make an awful gadfly of myself to get some public attention for this project) and has me on some perma-ignore list, but I just don’t have the luxury of time at this point.

Here’s my challenge:

If someone with a high enough profile will make a YouTube video or come up with an even better promotion that results in my meeting my goal of $26,000 by the end of this month of June 2012, I will pledge to donate my home, my house here in Nashville, Tennessee after my death in my will to them or the charitable institution of their choice. There’s only one condition, if I should predecease my mom, who’s the executor of my will, she will manage and reside in it until she in turn passes. She’s pushing 75 and not likely to outlive me, unless I’m, say, murdered by goons at the RNC or in Roswell, GA when I go there to follow up on the story of torture and harassment that drove Andrew Wordes to his death...but I won’t leave her unprotected.

I was in such a state I didn’t think of the cost of getting my vehicle to and from Freedom Motors’ facility in Michigan to actually perform the modification, and of course at that time I had no inkling I’d be doing the writing I am. In a pinch I can finance those myself, but perhaps we can forestall this. SO…as a bonus, I’ll throw in my personal possessions, like my firearms, original art work and vintage and reproduction classic tinplate toy collection, stuff I’d planned to will to my few remaining friends, if the amount reaches $30,000 by the end of June 2012. If more than one person launches a publicity drive, incidentally, the winner will be whoever’s responsible for the most total views the blog receives…Wordpress stats will show this and I’ll post a screenshot of them.

It’s a nice house, of brick construction; it along with its detached 2 1/2 car garage are visible in my Krip Kam #2 video, and when I purchased it in 2001 it had just been appraised at approximately $148,000. Doubtless that amount has fallen somewhat since then as a result of the bursting of the housing bubble, but not only did I acquire it for substantially less than that, I’m sure it would still command a respectable price, since it’s in good shape, built on a 1/2 acre corner lot on a hill with (in my opinion) the best view in the neighborhood, and of course has that large and well-constructed garage. Let’s not forget that it’s also disabled-friendly, with the 3 stout ramps that the local Civitan Club built for me several years ago, plus I plan to have the side deck (which was rotten when I got the place, but at the price I paid I didn’t care) ripped out and a switchback wheelchair ramp built so I can get to my basement again.

My mortgage company, Chase, certainly knows it’s a plum given how many times they’ve tried to scam me out of it, including when I tried refinancing it to pay for my vehicle modification months before I began Get Glenn Mobile! out of desperation…but that’s a whole ‘nother story.

Let’s be clear…if my challenge is met, you or your institution of choice are not gonna get the house right away; I plan to live for a goodly number of years yet, and I have no plans to spend that time homeless. Besides, I’ll be paying the mortgage, insurance and taxes on it for several years more until the home loan’s paid off. This is not an offer for impatient people with a high time preference.

I’m completely serious about this. I have no spouse or dependents to leave this house to (and never will, given that MS has made such a train wreck of me, inside and out), nor any close relatives save my mom. When I eventually go, the house will go to someone, and I certainly don’t want the government getting their grubby mitts on it. Heck, if you’re inclined, you could donate the entire amount yourself and think of it as a long term investment; you or a deserving institution will eventually get a good house worth at least a hundred grand or thereabouts for just over $16K now ($21K to get my guns and other goodies), though if you elect to do that, I’d much rather you get the money to Freedom Motors in my name, PayPal would take a pretty big chunk of a fee out of the gross! My requirement doesn’t even include a guarantee of my being able to make the Tampa event, just the deadline of the end of June.

Incidentally, in my letter to Dr. Woods, I said I’d leave the house to the Mises Institute if he met the challenge. That offer still stands, of course, but as I said, I just don’t have the time to wait. Three years’ imprisonment is about all I can take, and I just canNOT face another winter cooped up inside. I’m not self destructive, but like HAL 9000, my mind is going and I can feel it. The signs of damage are subtle but very real, and I don’t want to end up in some creepy fugue state, sleeping most of the time, a useless lump like too many disabled people allow themselves to become .

As always, any questions, comments or constructive criticism are welcome. Other than that…game on!

As the late Maurice Sendak wrote: let the wild rumpus start!

The Allies Continue to Increase in Numbers and Strength!

New Gadsden Flag

I was delighted to see this latest entry on the Combat Veterans for Ron Paul’s web site by my good friend and brother in arms Nick Allison. These folks and their friends have quickly become some of my most stalwart allies, and I couldn’t be happier about that!

In a related note, I had this to say in a response to this wonderful post:

Y’know, I keep meeting people who step up and join in with my growing cadre of allies regularly lately, and most of their connections trace back to my original encounter with CVRP.
Today I quit being a wuss and contacted Kellie Swift-Wikel, the host at Truth Finders Network who conducted such a great interview with Tatiana Moroz the other day. A couple of PMs later and she unexpectedly announced that she was about to fire up a live broadcast, invited me to call in, and I ended up spending a good half hour or so on with her discussing my disability, blog and mobility cause as well as her own amazing story about her young daughter who’s afflicted with several serious maladies, some of which carry invisible symptoms similar to those of MS, yet is still a happy and spiritually sound kid.

She plugged the heck out of my Get Glenn Mobile! project throughout for her listeners and couldn’t have been a more accommodating host. Kellie’s one who really GETS it, and having her join the GGM! corps was mighty gratifying.

The warmth and willingness to help I’m seeing from people isn’t something I expected…but I’m not surprised. THIS is the face of the real America; it’s very much alive and eager to promote freedom in all its forms, just like I knew it was.

Kellie Swift-Wikel is one very smart, VERY gutsy lady. As with you CVRP guys, Tatiana Moroz and so many other good people I’ve encountered since I began this little adventure, I’m delighted and honored to know her.

If folks aren’t yet familiar with this great bunch, do yourselves a favor and check out Truth Finders Network at http://truthfindersnetwork.com/index.html!

I’ve said it before: this project is obviously going to succeed.  The only question is when. I’m not going into details yet, but I’ve taken a step to accelerate the awareness-raising efforts of the cause in an effort to see its goal reached this very month, which should free me in time to join my friends and newly discovered family in Tampa for the events surrounding the RNC. Let’s hope the plan works.

Horse Tradin!’

I’ve got the guilts for not updating in several days, but it’s been a busy week.

I thoroughly enjoyed my participation in last week’s internet radio program with Adam House and Nick Allison of the Combat Veterans for Ron Paul. My only regret was not being able to talk with Jordan Page and Alexander Mosley, the first two guests on the CVRP show. Beyond his obvious artistic skill as a musician, Jordan just strikes me as such a regular guy I’d enjoy conversing with, and given Alexander Mosley’s experience with foreign affairs that jibes with many of the issues that intrigue me, I bet a talk with him would be a memorable one. I hope I can be involved again with a future show and perhaps all that will happen!

In addition to that, I was recently disappointed when I discovered that my bad left hand’s function has deteriorated over the last few years to the point where I can’t work the slide on a full size semiauto pistol, so after some horse trading on several sites and a bunch of emails, I traded the SIG Sauer P239 that’s been my carry sidearm for years for a like-new Ruger SP101 .357 magnum revolver. I miss the SIG, but the Ruger’s a wonderfully built little beast and is just one more reason to get mobile. I’m years overdue for a trip to the range to practice and spend a couple of hours plinking with my .22 target pistol!

Even my mom got caught up in the firearm frenzy and announced she too was ready for a defensive gun of her own. More ads and emails followed, and yesterday she found herself the owner of a great little Smith & Wesson Model 642 .38 Special +P! She had to cough up the scratch for it, though I negotiated a good deal for her…as with my own trade that didn’t incur any financial outlay, I’m trying to raise funds here, not spend them, not even hers (any more than necessary)!

EDIT- That last line could be misread, it occurs to me. I consider funds raised for my mobility project absolutely sacrosanct, period. When I purchase the occasional item on eBay, for instance, I keep track of how much is coming out of the PayPal account, then transfer increments of $50 or so as needed back to that account from what’s in my checking account. I only have the one PayPal account, and I’m careful about bookkeeping!

I’m glad that’s done, I need to chill a bit and get back to writing. All this gun stuff’s given me a few ideas, not just for the blog, but for a new Herald article. I’d better get some rest and let my eyes uncross…
