Which is the bigger issue— disenfranchising voters or voter fraud?

Which is the bigger issue— disenfranchising voters or voter fraud?

Disenfranchised voters pose a far greater threat to our democracy than anything that we can imagine, because if we don’t have participation we have the electoral college which will never elect the right person.

What do you think is the difference between organic and conventional produce?

What do you think is the  difference between organic and conventional produce?

I think it has to do with how it's raised and the additives that they put in fertilizer. I think that it's critical that we pay attention to that. And we haven't in the past.

Is it time for new gun laws in the United States? Why?

Is it time for new gun laws in the United States? Why?

Semi-automatics should be outlawed—period. I'm kind of on the fence on the rest of the gun laws. I wish that we lived in a place that we didn’t have to have gun control, but unfortunately they are available to too many crazy people. So, definitely ban semi-automatics for personal use.

Will you go to D-League Warriors games in Santa Cruz?

Yeah, I would. I'm a basketball fan, and we need more things like that, where people can go and have some fun. If they build it and actually use it for what they say they’re going to use it for, yes, I would do that.

Do you think that we as a nation are becoming more polarized? If so, why?

Do you think that we as a nation are becoming more polarized?  If so, why?

I think so. There's many common issues that we’re all facing and we find unity in this economy. Everybody is going through their struggles. I think unity is the best savior.

Two Fish Bound by a Golden Cord

Until March 20, (Spring Equinox), Earth and her kingdoms (mineral, plant, animal, human) experience the influence of Pisces, sign of the World Savior. Whereas the task of Aquarius is as world server, the Pisces task is saving the world—tasks given to the two fishes. Pisces never really enters matter, and as the last sign of the zodiac includes all the signs. During Pisces, having gathered all the gifts of the previous 11 signs, it is a good time to prepare for new initiating plans when Aries (sign of beginnings) begins. No wonder Pisces, like Scorpio, is so difficult (both are ruled by Pluto, planet of death, new life, regeneration, transformations). Both signs (with Scorpio drowning in dark and deep waters) find life on Earth a hardship, disorienting (from the spiritual perspective), at times feeling betrayed. Life is a paradox, especially for Pisces. Each zodiacal sign represents and distributes a different phase and facet (12) of the Soul’s diamond light, Pisces is the “Light of Life itself, ending forever the darkness of matter.” It takes two fish to complete this work (creating eventually an extraordinary human being). One fish turned toward the material world (in order to understand matter), the other fish toward the heavenly world. Around the two fish is a silvery cord binding them together. The two fish are forever bound until all of humanity is redeemed (lifted up into the Light). This is the dedication of all world saviors (Buddha, Christ, the NGWS). Thus the sacrifice and suffering experienced by Pisces. Knowing these things about Pisces, let us help them all we can. Sometimes all of humanity is Pisces.
