What should Obama have his sights set on in 2011?


Obama should try to clean up the mess that was made before he was in office, get us out of Iraq and Afghanistan and bring our boys back home.

What are your thoughts on WikiLeaks and Julian Assange?

What are your thoughts on WikiLeaks and Julian Assange?

He's providing a very important service for the country, if not the world. Unfortunately we live in a system that really demands questions and one that often doesn't provide answers. This is a vehicle maybe for that kind of freedom of thought and expression that probably can't be obtained in any other way.

What businesses should go into the Rittenhouse Building in Santa Cruz?

What businesses should go into the Rittenhouse Building in  Santa Cruz?
I'd like to see a quality music venue on this corner. We could use another venue in Santa Cruz that had Blues, R&B, Reggae— just the whole genre of music to give us better alternatives for music.

If you had your way, what would be one thing you’d like to see in Santa Cruz County that isn’t already set in place?

If you had your way, what would be one thing you’d like to see in Santa Cruz County that isn’t already set in place?

I think that we should have a public amphitheatre in the downtown area, very simple but beautiful—maybe cement so it can be used anytime for people to eat lunch, and also be available for people for art, presentations, whatever, to use a public space to express themselves.

What’s the best thing that happened in Santa Cruz County this year? And the worst?

What’s the best thing that  happened in Santa Cruz County this year? And the worst?

 

Definitely the worst thing that has happened over the last year in Santa Cruz has been the rise in gang violence. The best thing would have to be the increase in community activities and involvement.

Oprah? President?

Oprah? President?
No. I don't want any more celebrity presidents. I want a president with the political knowledge and background to help us get out of this mess.

We Hold These Truths to Be Self-Evident

Saturday, July 4, is the 239th birthday of the United States, commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence (the U.S. astrology chart has Aquarius moon—freedom for its people, by its people). Cancer, a liberating and initiating sign, is the “gate” where Spirit enters matter. Cancer receives and distributes Ray 3 (Divine Intelligence) and Ray 7 (new rules, new rhythms, new free nation under God). Cancer represents an intelligent freethinking humanity that can and must create right economics for the world. This means a policy of sharing, an opportunity for the U.S. when Venus (money, resources, possessions, etc.) retrogrades July and August in Leo (the heart of the matter). The United States has a unique spiritual task for the world: to lead humanity within and toward the light, accomplished by its people who must first awaken to this task, learn discrimination and be directed by the soul to assume the Herculean task of spiritual world leadership. Let us review the first words of our Constitution: “We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the United States of America.” Let us form that union together. The following is a review of the spiritual tasks for each sign. Read all the signs. They all apply to everyone.
