March For Our Lives – The Beginning

Well folks we must tell you that we have not been this inspired in a vary long time.  We have been meditating for months for some sort of solution to all the gun killings in this country and today our intentions have been answered.  Our last post noted how much power you can have when you work as a group and the Parkland Students formulated an idea, gave it tons of energy, and created  a revolution that started today with a world wide march.  These students are not messing around and they “get it” and have “BS detectors”.  They know the vote matters and they know the NRA controls 99.999% of the GOP by giving them money for campaigns.  It’s all on-line and easily found.  The Students are going to call out these guys / gals and invite them to a town hall meeting.  If they refuse, invite the opponent.

We sat and watched all the speakers and saw and we were so proud of all these students we were in tears most of the time.  A million people turned up in Washington DC and millions all around the world.  Where was the POTUS?  Where else golfing in FL just a few miles from Parkland and of course, silent.  This is what the students are going to change.  Marco Rubio was called out today for his hypocrisy on gun control and should probably be updating his resume for the next time he runs.  Marco received 3.3 million from the NRA.  Wait till they check John McCain 7.7 million, Richard Burr 6.9 Million just to name a few.  On the right side bar under “search” enter “NRA” and you will see a list of the top 10 senate and congress persons that received money from the NRA. We posted this November 11, 2017 and March, 2018.

Here is a link for “MARCHFOROURLIVES” Mission Statement.  (Click on it)

We plan to be “living” on this site and promoting this site here.  We are a baby boomer and marched against the Viet Nam War. In Chicago watched the cops beat the crap out of our friends as we were forced to break up the march.  Today they wouldn’t dare that today, but we bet the old guys were thinking about it.  So Baby Boomer’s of America lets help these students save our grand-children.  Just like them we can regenerate that energy we had back then and add it to the student energy and get the change done.

To all out there in cyber-land every night when you go to sleep send out the intent for the Students to be successful and picture an America & world without guns that kill thousands every year.  Check out our posts on meditation and with enough of us sending energy the change will be quick.

We remember where we were when JFK was shot and now we remember where we were when the MARCH FOR OUR LIVES event took place.

We have nothing to report right now, but will be sending updates often.

Gun Control – Gun Control Laws – Post from 11/09/2017


We rarely post something not on the positive side but we could not sit here and not say anything about all those innocent victims of shootings starting with way back with Sandy Hook.  Nothing has been said much over the last ninety days and today I turn on the TV and see that the GOP is more interested in getting a phony tax bill passed than GUN CONTROL laws.  So I want to show you why the GOP is not and will not go up against the NRA.  Below is a list of the top 10 Senate and House members that receive donations from the NRA.  The list comes from the NY Times and we invite you to go Google and get the entire list.  Most GOP members get donations and about a handful of DMS.  You will be amazed.  Now its not against the law to accept donations, but if you look at the amounts you will see why they (GOP)  don’t want to risk losing the huge amounts.

The first line on list is the member name and State.  The next line is what they said when the shooting event took place.  The third is the NRA Amount they have received.  The comments see to be a template for each time a shooting happens.

There are numerous articles posted on the web.  We go the above list from the NY Times, but this is the shot list. Just about every GOP Senator and House member gets NRA donations. A few Democrats.  Go to GOOGLE and search “NRA GOP DONATIONS”.  Then sort trough the hundreds of links.

We have nothing to add except to say to the folks out there “Call your state rep and tell him or her that you want gun control not phony tax plans.” To all the victims we are praying for the families and all concerned.

Sad Day in Southerland Springs, Texas and the United States of America

My fellow Americans once again we have coward shooting at a church in Southerland Springs, Texas with 20+ dead including women and children. The shooter is dead after a short chase. Many details are still unclear.  The daughter of the pastor is reported to be one of the victims.

Our prayers and with all the victims involved in this tragic event.

We have nothing to add at this time but will be following events on CNN.

Folks, we can only say that until strong gun control is in place these type of incidents will continue and its up to us to get something done.  The WH, Congress, and Senate have their heads up their butts because the NRA donates big time to the GOP.  They hem haw around for a few days, then NOTHING gets done.  Call your representatives and DEMAND GUN CONTROL NOW!
