#64 /100 Reasons I Blog4Peace / hateful coloring book

 Doesn't anyone pay attention ? What happened to trying to write the truth ?  I planned a different blog today ...
But I am going to explode if I don't get this out now!




The very ink with which all history is written is merely fluid prejudice. 
~Mark Twain, Following the Equator


Too many historical writers are the votaries of cults, which, by definition are dedicated to whitewashing warts and hanging halos.  ~Thomas A. Bailey

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to fulfill it" George Santayana

  It has become too easy to see that the luckless men of the past lived by mistakes, even absurd beliefs, so we may well fail in a decent respect for them, and forget that historians of the future will point out that we too lived by myths.  ~Herbert J. Muller, Freedom in the Western World


Legend:  A lie that has attained the dignity of age.  ~H.L. Mencken

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:32  King James Bible
digging for the truth can be hard
 Okay I think I took enough time finding these quotes above to calm down to write something myself. 
Before my second cup of coffee I had gotten so Angry I had to go outside to try to get my blood pressure from boiling! 
So what got me so mad you ask ? Would you believe a coloring book ?

An author named "Wayne Bell"  is ringing a bell of Hatred !


 Bell has written a children's Coloring book packed with lies! Calling it History! Yes it is his-story but not facts ! 


It is teaching Hate and Racist values in my opinion. 

This coloring book for kids,  tells a " history lesson" of terrorist attacks on the United States and the war on terrorism to an extreme degree , which is Filled with propaganda ?


He said "9/11 Coloring Book Seeks To Tell Kids 'Truth' About Terrorism" . 
I say it is filled with Hype and Hate . you can click this link to see some of the pages.

'We Shall Never Forget 9/11' Kids Coloring Book - Graphic Coloring Novel

this book Offers Hate Not Hope

a child's coloring book that has to be rated PG?

Rated PG - Parental Guidance Suggested 

This is a quote from this sick man that wrote it !
Bell said "people's feedback to that page has been positive. Parents tell him that when they show their kids that image, they understand that "we got him." "If you bomb our country, America will chase you 'til the very end," he said. "That's what it shows." Bell insists it's not ideological, described himself as a "very liberal" guy, and his company has published all types of books.



I say ...

The American History books were taken from the schools because they were Full of Bias writings ,racist, sexist, ethnocentric, and down right Lies. 
These are what I was taught as a  child !?? Lots of these lies are still believed and taught to kids from people that still believe them because it was in our School books . 
Remember the one that  "Columbus Discovered the Earth is Round" ?  check this link out...

The 5 Most Ridiculous Lies You Were Taught In History Class

 I like this ... It gives me hope.

Civilization is a stream with banks. 

The stream is sometimes filled with blood from people killing, stealing, shouting and doing the things historians usually record, while on the banks, unnoticed, people build homes, make love, raise children, sing songs, write poetry and even whittle statues.  
The story of civilization is the story of what happened on the banks.  Historians are pessimists because they ignore the banks for the river.  
~Will Durant


Friends all I can say is Read what you buy for your kids !
Many years ago , I bought 20 coloring books for a Sunday school class called "Old Testament  stories" it said it had the Ten commandments shown on 2 pages ... only 9 were there ,plus one of those were written wrong ! ? I later looked to realize they were made in China.   


Well that is my rant today on why I blog for Peace.
If  people can get away with publishing lies and hate to children ...We are always going to have wars and lives being destroyed. 


Till tomorrow 
Wishing Peace and Blessings upon You all.

DEA Upholds Federal Marijuana Monopoly, Obstructing Privately-Funded FDA Research

The DEA's refusal to break NIDA's monopoly on the supply of marijuana for research has direct implications for non-government-funded research. On April 28, 2011, the FDA cleared MAPS' proposed study of marijuana for U.S. veterans with chronic, treatment-resistant posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). That same day, MAPS submitted the protocol for review by the Public Health Service (PHS) and NIDA, a procedure required for marijuana research because of the NIDA monopoly (but not for studies of any other controlled substance). Almost four months later, NIDA is still silent about whether it will agree to sell MAPS marijuana for the study. Without it, the study cannot go forward.
The DEA's protection of NIDA's monopoly has blocked privately funded medical marijuana research for four decades. Until the Obama administration instructs the DEA to change its tune, state-level medical marijuana reform efforts are the only way for patients to get safe and legal access to the medicine their physicians recommend.

North Carolina Legislature Considers Medical Marijuana Measure

Urge Your Representative to Support

 House Bill 577 amends state law to “authorize an individual to use marijuana for medical purposes as directed by a physician.” HB 577 would allow patients both the ability to cultivate their own cannabis at home or to purchase it at state licensed distribution centers.

Hemp is better ask Dupont 
Cannabis varieties thrived for ten to twelve thousand years - providing all the things people needed. Cannabis fibers was used by everyone, making things for themselves. Everyone was a creator and a manufacturer - and cannabis knowledge evolved slowly but surely everywhere on earth.
Yes, it was this plant that led us to all the modern knowledge of today - and what has the corrupt government done to say thank you?
That’s right, they have outlawed it - They have stolen all the knowledge that has taken thousands of years to evolve into useful knowledge, and given it to the petrochemical industries to misuse and abuse the world with ever since.
Power and greed are both addictive to the extent of insanity.





Police arrested an estimated 858,408 persons for cannabis violations in 2009. Of those charged with cannabis violations, approximately 89 percent were charged with possession only. An American is arrested for violating cannabis laws every 30 seconds.

#66 /100 Reasons I Blog4Peace / Monopoly part 4



Will Education become a Monopoly Game? 
In the beginning, most consumers don’t care about the side effects as the benefits outweigh the risks. When everyone is using the same OS and software the IT guys don’t need to bother converting them into other formats etc. and if a web service offers me so many services for free I might as well share some personal information with it to make the experience even better.
Looking at it from the education angle, the same as described above is of course somewhat true for budget stretched schools and colleges. Isn’t it far better to invest into a platform that offers the best applications, is cross-compatible to different popular devices and on the cutting edge of technology? Parents don’t need to bother to invest in dedicated devices, we just saw the idea of the Kno fail. And what did Kno pivot into? An application for the most popular tablet, the iPad.
And this leads me to the question who is going to have the monopoly on education in the future and how it may look like. Should the state take more control over the decisions which devices and software / applications get credited like in the publishing space? Should publishers that already have the long term expertise in developing textbooks and other education-related material work together more closely with hardware manufacturers? Should there be a dedicated device similar to the long awaited $35 tablet in India for the education space?





February 18, 2010 America's Global Weapons Monopoly
 this is a strong statement found in the link above 
Don't for a second think that the American global monopoly on weapons sales is accidental or unintentional. The constant and lucrative growth of this market for U.S. weapons makers has been ensured by shrewd strategic planning. Washington is constantly thinking of new and inventive ways to flog its deadly wares throughout the world. 


Well I can't say this has been fun . I have actually gotten a headache looking for this information . 

As  I have said before , I am learning if you have a real argument with what I have posted here ... Teach me, but keep it civil . 



Peace and Blessings be upon you all.

#67 /100 Reasons I Blog4Peace / monopoly part3

 This is a topic that could be covered for weeks !
Monopoly??? 
Since I have spent a lot of my life avoiding politics I am learning as I go . 
This being said , I try to find the most bias information I can and try to form my Own thoughts from what I learn. This is no easy task !?
  




Monopoly definition http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/monopoly
1. exclusive control of the market supply of a product or service
2. a. an enterprise exercising this control

b. the product or service so controlled
3. law  the exclusive right or privilege granted to a person, company, etc, by the state to purchase, manufacture, use, or sell some commodity or to carry on trade in a specified country or area
4. exclusive control, possession, or use of something

United States antitrust law definition

 The United States antitrust law is the body of laws that prohibits anti-competitive behavior (monopoly) and unfair business practices. Antitrust laws are intended to encourage competition in the marketplace. These competition laws make illegal certain practices deemed to hurt businesses or consumers or both, or generally to violate standards of ethical behavior. Government agencies known as competition regulators, along with private litigants, apply the antitrust and consumer protection laws in hopes of preventing market failure. 

The term antitrust was originally formulated to combat "business trusts", now more commonly known as cartels. Other countries use the term "competition law". Many countries including most of the Western world have antitrust laws of some form; for example the European Union has provisions under the Treaty of Rome to maintain fair competition, as does Australia under its Trade Practices Act 1974.



I decided after searching for the definition of Monopoly I would do a search on "American Monopoly" with the News filter ... this seems to be a less used tag than 10 years ago. maybe it is time to bring it back!

these are some of what I found.  

Whatever you want to call it or name it as you see it. The Oil Cartel, The Banking Cartel, The Diamond Cartel, the Pharmaceutical Cartel, The Medical Cartel and soon to be the food Cartel all seek to use the force of government to attack their competition . John D Rockefeller stated that competition is a sin. Monopolies do not happen in a vacuum. These corporate monsters arise with government intervention and help. Why I am saying this to you? It is because all these corporations now write the legislation and lobby congress to pass it into law. They write these laws in a specific way where the laws do not apply to them and shut down their competition. They have lawyers in the US Justice Department to make sure no anti trust litigation ever becomes known exposing their anti competitive practices. 

 I can see I will have to do more tomorrow on this topic...

Till then 

Peace and Blessings be upon you.
