What’s the best thing Obama can be doing for the country right now?

What’s the best thing Obama can be doing for the country right now?


Resign. Probably the worst president we've had to date, he's taking us in a direction the founding fathers never intended us to be. He's a great believer in big government, which is just the opposite of where we need to be heading. So I'm hoping that there is a huge reversal of leadership as a result of the election on Tuesday.

What’s the most scared you've ever been?

What’s the most scared  you've ever been?

When I was little my uncle used to go outside of our bedroom window when we were going to sleep and he would start to scratch on the window. We'd think that somebody was trying to get in. I literally connot remember being more scared, it was petrifying. And then after a while we realized it was him.

How will you know when the recession is over?

How will you know when the recession is over?
The recession will probably be over when people will be able to buy homes again, sell their homes if they want to, have jobs, and not worry every day about making ends meet.

If money were not an object, what would you do with your life?

If money were not an object, what would you do with your life?

 

Travel the world, take care of my bills and all my family’s bills. Also create an institute that would give back to everybody, like an art or a culinary institute.

What is the best and worst about being your gender?

What is the best and worst about being your gender?

 

Worst is preconception about how you’re supposed to act and behave
of your gender. And the best is you get to wear great clothes.

What are your thoughts on building a mosque two blocks from Ground Zero?

What are your thoughts on building a mosque two blocks from Ground Zero?

 

I think that it's ridiculous that people are protesting it and that it's a racist and stereotyping kind of a thing.  Just because certain factions of the Islamic state committed violent acts against Americans it doesn't condemn all the people that are American citizens and have a right to practice their faith. Forgiveness is much more powerful than holding resentment and it would help everybody.

Gemini Festival of Goodwill, World Invocation Day

This entire week is a preparation by the New Group of World Servers (NGWS) for the June full moon (Tuesday) and to welcome the Forces of Reconstruction, great outer planetary forces streaming into the Earth at the Gemini Solar Festival. The Gemini Festival at the June full moon is called the Festival of Goodwill and World Invocation Day (recitation of the Great Invocation, the mantram of direction for humanity, hourly around the world). During the (12 degrees) Gemini festival, the Wesak blessing of the will-to-good is released and radiated (Gemini distributes) to humanity. When the will-to-good is received, humanity is then able to radiate goodwill to each other and to the kingdoms. The Gemini Festival is the third of the Three Spring Festivals (triangle of Force), setting the spiritual template and resources for Earth for the rest of the year (‘til next spring). This festival recognizes the true spirit of humanity—aspiring toward and seeking the will of God, dedicated to right human relation. At the full moon, the Divine nature of humanity is recognized. Christ stands with humanity, leader of his people, “the Eldest in a great family of brothers” (Romans VIII, 29.) Each year at the Gemini festival, Christ preaches the last sermon of Buddha, His brother, a sermon calling forth human and spiritual unity, represented by an outflow of love (work of the Christ) and wisdom (work of the Buddha). The forces of reconstruction stream in during the Festival, ushering in an era of pronounced creative activity, rebuilding the tangible world on new creative lines. This necessitates the total destruction of the old forms no longer useful for the new world era. Everyone is invited. Join us everyone for this Festival of Goodwill by reciting the Great Invocation.
