LIFE AND DEATH

newborn   Funeral

It’s one of the greatest mysteries to mankind.  It’s right there with “How did we get here” and “What are we here for”?  Ask any E.R. doctor that’s revived a patient from death what He or She thinks about the concept of an after life.  Most will be quick to say, they believe that the brain continues to function in a realm that we cannot identify on this level of consciousness.  They’ve probably heard too many identical stories about the bright light.

The Reality TV Show “I Survived” had a spin off show called “I Survived….Beyond and Back. (ISB&B)  The stories were based on testifmonies then recreations of Near Death Experiences. (NDEs) If you want to read hundreds of these testimonies; There’s a website called The Near Death Experience Research Foundation (NDERF) The Url is http://www.NDERF.ORG.  Be sure to click on the drop down menu and

In the 2nd Season of ISB&B, an Emergency Room doctor has a heart attack and is brain dead for almost 15 minutes.  In the medical world, if your brain goes without oxygen for 3 minutes, you are considered brain damaged.  If you do recover, your chances of walking, talking and thinking without impairment is very rare.  Your chances of winning the lottery is better.  But since the on-call E.R. doctor was a

friend of the patient, he would not give up.  My guess, (something the TV producers didn’t show) is that the E.R. doctor gave his friend every benefit of the doubt and pulled out all of the stops. (Cardio-epinephrin, Defibrillation, and 15 minutes of CPR) As you might have guessed, his friend came back with no brain damage at all.  This was incredible.  The first question his friend asked the patient once he was back was: “Did you see the White Light”?  The doctor/patient’s response was: “No but I entered the tunnel“.

If you read a hundred or so NDERF studies or watch the full series of ISB&B, there are several common stories the NDErs recall.

1. An out of body experience

2. Being drawn towards a Bright yet warm and loving white light.

3. Being greeted by relatives who have died.

4. A life review.  Some call it judgement

5. Some say they saw an entitiy they thought was Jesus.

6. Many heard a relative say: “It’s not your time” or were given a choice to return.

7. During the life review, the NDEr saw how every action had a reaction in the form of an unintended consequence.

8. When the soul returns to the body, almost all say they flew with a “swooshing” sound like that of a vacuum and were instantly back in their body.

9. Almost all of them said they no longer fear death because they know that the “soul” keeps on……

For the majority of the Series; the stories are the same.  Surgery goes bad, or an accident happens or the person is having a heart attack. Then they may have an out of body experience and see the surgical or first responders working on a body (not knowing it’s their body)  Then the deceased relatives greet them.  Then the Bright light.  Then they relive every moment of their life in a fast forward motion, yet every moment is lucid and it’s like they are “reliving” it. Then someone says: “It’s not your time”. Then the swooshing sound, then they’re back in their body.

HOWEVER ~

In the final episode of one season; A person identified as Matthew is shot in the head by a drive by shooter in Atlanta. In a split second he is dead and in a place he refers to as Hell. No bright light, no relatives, no warm puppies or tunnel. He’s shackled over an “abyss” and naked. He hears the moans and cries of others (gnashing of teeth) and feels nothing but FEAR and is surrounded by darkness.

You can go to the BIO site to watch this episode, but his message was, HELL DOES EXIST. It’s real and you’re soul (or quantum spiritual existence)is going to go to one of two places.

I’ve always preached (really) that you shouldn’t fear Hell or judgment day. FEAR TODAY. If you find yourself in HELL it’s because you didn’t take today seriously.

Beauty is in the Eye of the Viewer

Cinderella

I once took a class called “Finding the Love of Your Life”.  It was a video course that was produced by Dr. Neil Clark Warren.  Yes the same Dr. Warren in his commercials for EHarmony.com. One section in the course focused on a question that has puzzled me all of my life.

Why do we find certain people more attractive than others? And why are some women perceived as very attractive to a majority of men?

Dr. Warren says it’s our childhood scripting that is the programming of our fantasy partner.  In other words: “Hollywood”.

Snow

Somewhere in the DNA of the seeds of Puberty lay the visions of Beauty as described by Disney. If you study the characters of “Sleeping Beauty” “Snow White” or even “Cinderella” you’ll find that Disney preferred a light skinned Caucasian girl with Big Eyes, a small nose, and big lips. Prominent cheek bones were also common. These images are what keep cosmetic surgeons busy every day.  Rhinoplasty makes your nose smaller. Blepharoplasty makes your eye bigger (by reducing the eyelids). And of course what would Angelina Jolie be without collagen in those lips?

As you can see, This was the image little boys were told to look for; and the goal little girls were told to aim for. I guess it would have helped to be Nordic or Scandinavian.

Barbie        Jessica_0

So we go thru life using these mental images as what we need to attain to be successful in life. If you’re a minority; forget it. This isn’t the country for you. You blondes wonder why Hispanic girls have a chip on their shoulders? EVEN in the movie KING KONG the Gorilla was offered up a female human sacrifice with a BLONDE WIG. So can we blame Walt Disney for the 50% divorce rate in America Today? Perhaps there’s enough blame to go around all of Hollywood. But ultimately we only have ourselves to blame. Self-esteem is not something that comes from society’s norms. As children, we are taught with positive and negative re-enforcement. If we do something good, your parents tell you so. If you do something bad, you are admonished. So as children, we are always looking outside (from someone other than ourselves) for “confirmations” of our behavior.  Unfortunately, this doesn’t stop at behavior. We do the same thing for our profession, our lifestyle and of course our appearance.

In Science, we use what is called a “control” to determine what is normal to give us “desirable” results. And as humans, we want to use that same type of paradigm (pronounced “pair- uh- dime) or method of thinking. So as a young “virile” male; if I can mate with someone that looks like “Barbie”, then that reflects on my ability to attract women.  It says nothing about my ability to have a lasting relationship (see Hollywood marriages).
Dr. Warren went on to classify people that were seeking a mate in 3 categories.

1. Breezers – (I’m paraphrasing) or people that look like Hollywood’s perception of Beauty. These people never have to look for a date. Their always having people hit on them and their biggest problem is weeding out the one’s they dislike. I guess this would be the Jennifers, Brads, Bens and Angelinas of the world.

2. The Short Shrifted – You know who you are. I guess the best phrase that describes this bunch is from the Woody Allen movie “Annie Hall” Woody quotes Groucho Marx when describing his relationships. He says “I would never want to be in a club that would have me as a member”. I think this describes the sort of “Programmed” social suicide that keeps many humans from being happy. I’ve seen it many times with financially successful people. We don’t want what we don’t have; we want what we can’t have. Short Shrifted people think they’re too good for what has come their way. The problem is, all of their decision making criteria is based on physical attributes.

3. The desperate – Yes, these are people with just the opposite problem of the short Shrifted. They lack self-esteem and are drawn to anyone that will look at them twice. They mistake attention for attraction. It’s very sad because true beauty lies within the person. And these people sell themselves short.
Hollywood has sold us a bill of goods. They want us to think that a mindless bimbo has more going for her than mother Theresa. The more women gained from the civil rights movement of the 60’s; the more Hollywood has denigrated them by focusing on their physical attributes. True beauty doesn’t come from Revlon. It doesn’t come from having the right genetic makeup. It’s not about what you have, where you live, what you wear or what you drive. It’s about what you are. To millions of shallow girls, they find their role models in Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus. In their Hollywood programmed mind; “if only I could look like her all of my problems would be over”.

Jenbie

It’s very sad. As long as we keep using “Video” as a form of parenting, we will continue to support this self-destructive myth. When little girls long to be more like mother Theresa, or Sally Ride and Men start appreciating women as beings and not physical possessions; then will there be hope for future generations. Only then will the divorce rate start to decline. Only then will humanity start to scratch the surface of its’ potential.

A Tale of 2 Lincolns

 five

Abraham Lincoln is the face on a 5 dollar bill.

 

When I’m in a “giving mood” I have no problems sharing a 5 with someone in need.  There in lays the problem. I’ve softened over the years.  Before the current disaster of an administration; I use to be harsh on “beggars”.  But before Obama, it was not hard to get a job

My story begins as I am entering the Carmel Crossroads Safeway grocery store.  I see an old grizzly guy in very faded woodland camouflage  He had a ZZ Top beard and looked thin.  He looked DOWN and I felt for the guy because I felt he was probably a fellow veteran.  So I told him on the way in: “Stick around brother and I’ll have something for you on the way out”.

3 days later I was walking Sasha and Wolfgang.  We came up on the cutest little 5 or 6 year old girl and her home made lemonade stand.  I was going to give her something just for showing a fine work ethic.  So I pull out a Five. (It’s all I have).  I gave it to her and she poured me a glass of minute maid lemonade. “It was the BEST lemonade I have ever consumed anywhere”.  As I was walking away with the 2 dogs I could hear in the background: ” HEY MOMMY LOOK”!  I felt really good to have made her day because she was looking really DOWN.

That same day I had to go to Safeway to pick up something I needed for dinner that night.  I saw the same guy in camos. He looks at me and says: “Can ya help a veteran”?  I said: “Bro, I gave you a five two days ago”.  His answer was: “You did”?

Now I’m not the first to say that I’m the most recognizable person on the Monterey peninsula after Clint Eastwood.  But like Einstein; I wear the same pants and shirt every day. I have several black mock turtle necks and 4 pair of modern camo pants.  I also have hair like Paul Stanley of Kiss.

So this guy had no clue that I had helped him out nor did he seem to care.  I meant nothing more than another sucker giving him money.

On the bright side, a few weeks later Sasha, Wolfgang and myself were walking and a cute little girl road by on her Bicycle and smiled at me and said: “HI”!  It took me a while to figure out that She was the little girl at the Lemon aid stand.  So you tell me who appreciated the five dollars?  Who did the money have the bigger effect on?

 The Lemon-aid was worth every penny

 

A Smile to last a lifetime

 KimBasinger4Kim Basinger  

 One day I was crossing Admiralty way in Marina Del Rey and I caught Kim Basinger looking at me. She smiled, I raised my sunglasses and looked around me to see if it was me she was smiling at. It was. I looked back and she was already up the stairs to the Hotel. (She went into the Double Tree Hotel) But that moment will always be with me as long as I have this set of memories. I can’t remember half the people I’ve slept with, but I’ll always remember that smile. And that is all it was meant to be…….. 
“A smile and a dream beats Sex and a Divorce every time” ~ Ace Andres
Kim
I’ve come to the absolute conclusion that the love that comes from a smile of admiration far outweighs the sex,intimacy and eventual divorce that comes with taking the smile seriously. As insecure humans, we often take a simple smile or flirt as a repositioning of our self esteem. For some reason, men feel that if we marry this person, they will continue to have the same effect on our hunger for attention. The truth is, sometimes a smile is just a smile. A smile however; taken in it’s proper context is far more valuable than a smile that was pursued only to find out years later that all it was meant to be was a smile.
Just a word of advice:  “Enjoy the smile for what it is”.

THE DANA PERINO BARBIE

Heidi Dana

Co-host “Little Heidi” who resembles Dana Perino

I have a production I’m working on called Red Ace.  It features a 12″ version of myself as the talk show host. (one of my inner most desires, AND the little Ace looks just like me) My co-host as you can see looks a LOT like Tiny “D”, and the show wouldn’t be a true talk show without a sidekick who laughed at all of my stupid jokes so I have an 8″ tall Greg Gutfeld.  I’ve got 12″ guests lined up from Ronald Reagan to Ironman.  From Jackie Chan to Jack Bauer.  From Michael Jackson to Elvis.

Hair

We’re still working on trying to make the Greg Gutfeld figure look more like Greg and less like Anakin Skywalker.  At this point he looks more like the 6th grade version of Greg, but I ask: “Could anyone really tell the difference”?

FAITH IS TRULY THE VICTORY

Job

You can pretty much tell what’s on a person’s mind by what they’re reading.  I find this one of the most profound readings ever written.  Talk about the ultimate “Quagmire” How do you plead your case in no win forum?  His Wife is of no help, she says: “Why don’t you just curse God and die”.  But instead, he “Vents”.  This is the ultimate Rant of Rants.

“I loathe my own life; I will give full vent to my complaint; I will speak in the bitterness of my soul.

  “I will say to God, ‘Do not condemn me; Let me know why You contend with me.

‘Is it right for You indeed to oppress, To reject the labor of Your hands, And to look favorably on the schemes of the wicked?

‘Have You eyes of flesh? Or do You see as a man sees?

  ‘Are Your days as the days of a mortal, Or Your years as man’s years,

That You should seek for my guilt And search after my sin?

‘According to Your knowledge I am indeed not guilty, Yet there is no deliverance from Your hand.

‘Your hands fashioned and made me altogether, And would You destroy me?

  ‘Remember now, that You have made me as clay; And would You turn me into dust again?

  ‘Did You not pour me out like milk And curdle me like cheese;

  Clothe me with skin and flesh, And knit me together with bones and sinews?

‘You have granted me life and loving kindness; And Your care has preserved my spirit.

‘Yet these things You have concealed in Your heart; I know that this is within You:

If I sin, then You would take note of me, And would not acquit me of my guilt.

‘If I am wicked, woe to me! And if I am righteous, I dare not lift up my head. I am sated with disgrace and conscious of my misery.

  ‘Should my head be lifted up, You would hunt me like a lion; And again You would show Your power against me.

‘You renew Your witnesses against me And increase Your anger toward me; Hardship after hardship is with me.

‘Why then have You brought me out of the womb? Would that I had died and no eye had seen me!

‘I should have been as though I had not been, Carried from womb to tomb.’

“Would He not let my few days alone? Withdraw from me that I may have a little cheer   Before I go—and I shall not return— To the land of darkness and deep shadow,

  The land of utter gloom as darkness itself, Of deep shadow without order, And which shines as the darkness.”  ~ Job Chapter 10

Even in his time of pain and despair; Job refuses to curse God.  For Job knows that unlike those who will not respond to you, He knows God is silent for a reason. He knows God is Omnipresent and hears his pleas.  I am far from the righteous man Job was and will always consider myself the worst sinner on earth. Yet I seek to as righteous as Job, yet deep inside, “I know me” and “God knows me”.  In this case, Faith Truly is the Victory.

2 years and 60 pounds lighter – How?

My Secret

60 pounds over 2 years

On February 15th 2012, I visited my doctor and she made me get on the scale.  Much to my surprise, I found out why I had high blood pressure.  Some things you can’t blame totally on Obama.  But I was consederably overweight.  Not obese but overweight.

I was starting to suffer all of the symptoms of an obese person, (borderline type II diabetes, my glucose stayed on the high parameters of normal and the most painful thing, gout),  but I looked proportional.  I looked large but not fat.  I use to lift weights in highschool so I’m use to having large shoulders and pecks.  That’s not a good thing.  It enables you to exist in denial.  Now I swim in my old jackets that I couldn’t zip up.

To make a very ugly and long story short, I went home and said I’m not touching another beer and all I’m going to consume are protien shakes. I was embarrassed and had hit rock bottom.

I played sports in highschool and American Legion Baseball before I went into the military so I know what it’s like to be in great shape.  This was that “aha” moment that I needed.  I found that when I quit having 2 Heinikens a night I started sleeping better.

The protien shakes were becoming a pain in the ass though.  But one night I was watching “Undercover CEO”.  It was a cute show while it lasted.  It was a show about the CEO of a corporation dressing up like a stranger and working as a janitor or entry level customer service worker.  They would fly to a remote part of the country on their G4 and show up in their Taco Bell uniform.

One night I was watching this episode of a CEO that was trying his hardest to lose weight and he was eating nothing but Peanut Butter on a slice of bread.  I tried it and it did a great job of ridding my body of the hunger.  As for the peanut ; Talk it over with your doctor, but I use Laura Scudder’s “All Natural” crunchy.  I avoid “organic” because Peanuts need to be sprayed to keep aflatoxins from growing.  Aflatoxins are very bad for your liver.  Now people will say: “But isn’t peanut butter really fattening”?  It doesn’t have a high fat content but the great part is that it’s mono-saturated.  It has “Good Cholesterol”/ “Good Fat”.  This is the stuff that lowers your low density lipids or LDL Cholesterol aka “BAD CHOLESTEROL”  It also lowers your triglycerides.  (I save a lot of money on statins and beta blockers) But again, it works for me, check with your doctor before you try it.  As for my one meal of the day, some nights it’s Chinese food, other nights it’s ground sirloin burgers in a myriad of ways.

I still eat one good meal a day and about 3 slices of bread with Laura Scudder’s natural Peanut Butter (approx. 2 table spoonfulls per slice.  Since February 15th 2012, I’ve lost almost 60 pounds. I don’t miss the alcohol.  In fact I think we have an extra 150.00 bucks a month we use to spend on Heineken.  (Not to mention the 20 bucks a day we use to spend on lunch).

It works for me.  I take vitamin supplements and try and get a serious amount of green vegetables in that one meal a day that I eat.  All together I probably consume 1200 calories a day.  The Ideal weight loss program is to lose 2.5 pounds a month.  If I did my math right, that’s 30 pounds a year which is what I’ve done.  If you crash diet, your body will more than likely put the pounds back on plus a few more.  If you diet in an unhealthy way, you could die like Terri Schiavo.  (Enzyme imbalance).

If the peanut butter doesn’t do it for you, just try cutting every thing you eat in half.  Get rid of the drinks, (Alcohol or sodas) both are useless calories.

By the way,  with Obamacare being in our future, I no longer need Lipitor or BP lowering medicine, which is a great thing.

THE FIRST CUT IS THE DEEPEST?

Cat rod-stewart

Cat Stevens wrote: “The First Cut is the Deepest”.  The First Cut is the Deepest?  Naw the last cut is the deepest and the most painful.

With social media and the ability to find that girl that sat in the 1st row, 3rd seat in your sophomore algebra class, or the ability to just say hi on your smart phone, I’ve discovered something; a phenomena if I may, that I find quite disturbing.

I have a list of people that I “THOUGHT” I was close to.  People that “I KNOW” can get in touch with me, yet prefer to let things lay in the past.  And what I hate the most is wondering if I was the A$$ hole, or they’re being an A$$ hole.

Let’s put cyber technology aside.  Are some things best left as history?  Or will you, in the long run, regret not being able to say one last good-bye?  Steve Martin writes a very important line in the Movie L.A. story that is incredibly profound for a comedian.  He says why is it you never know when exactly you fell in love; but you always remember the exact moment it’s over?

Thus I say: “The last cut is the deepest”.  Being turned down is part of life.  Being turned down after being accepted is painful. (If it meant anything to you).  But worse than being turned down after being accepted is being turned down without knowing why.  It does not allow closure.

Sometimes people are just busy.  Sometimes people have short memories and sometimes people are just selfish.  Life goes on and some things just need to be filed under E for enigmatic.  If not, you will hurt yourself trying to take blame for something that you have nothing to do with.

Unless someone comes out and tells you that they want nothing further to do with you, then they fall under one of the above categories.  Oh wait, there is one more: “They’re too thoughtless to let you know why they can’t/won’t/or haven’t replied to your outreach”.

I guess, just as the enemy often considers kindness a weakness, the self centered consider kindness a gratuity.  Or even worse, we (The Seeker) mistake kindness for friendship.

Life is short.  Sometimes we need to: “Let it be”.

SEX WITH GHOSTS

Ghost

It was the 21st annual Stanford University Paranormal Investigators conference at the Hoover Pavilion.  A group of about 250 were in attendance.  The premise was the documentation and verification of Apparitions or “Ghosts”.

Present were the usual television speakers and mediums who you might see on the SyFy channel or even H2.  In attendance was Zak Bagans, Jason Hawthorn,  Amy Allan, Char, Chip Coffee, Theresa Caputo and Kim Russo just to name a few.  The host was professor Erick Von Daniken.

After the cordial greetings and the introduction of the panel, the Host started out by asking if he could see a show of hands of those who have had a paranormal experience.  Approximately 220 participants raised their hands.

The speakers next question was: “Has anyone seen and been touched by a spirit or ghost”.  Only about 75 raised their hands.  Out of the 75; the host asked how many had been in what they would consider an intimate encounter with a ghost.  Only three people raised their hands.  The Professor asked the three to stand up.  With great anticipation he asked: “Out of the three of you; did you actually have sex with a ghost (An Incubus or Succubus) two of the three sat down just leaving one old fellow dressed in a flannel shirt and overalls.

This was fantastic.  With jubilant excitement, Dr. Von Daniken asked once again, REALLY; You’ve had sex with an actual Ghost?  The audience member asked if he could repeat the question.  Once again: “Did you actually have sex with a Ghost”?

The gentleman replied: “Oh Ghosts.  Hell no.  I thought you said goats”.

TEARS FOR DRESDEN

Dresden statue

Dresden was the capital city of Saxon in Germany.  It was of no military significance to anyone.  Not even the Third Reich.  Dresden was as much of a military threat as Couer d’ Alene , Idaho is today.  It was one of those places where you park the car, walk down main street and feel safe.  Not on February 13th 1945.

This will be a short article as writing about 2/13/1945 makes my stomach hurt, my eyes tear up and it makes me angry for the rest of the day.  The memory robs me of my “Freedom”.  There are two things that my country (The same one I fought for) did that make me less than proud to be an American.  (And please don’t take this like a stupid Michelle Obama statement) The first is the genocide of the indigenous people of North America, The Native Americans.  The 2nd was the attempted Genocide of the German people which was the Idea of Winston Churchill in cooperation with F.D.R.  I’ve provided links above if want to read the details.

In a nut shell, because I can feel my stomach knotting up already, the Red Army (Russia) had crossed into Berlin.  This Army was a lawless band of killers hell bent on revenge and immorality.  They destroyed and raped anything that moved on their way to Berlin.

****************************************************************

Mass rapes

From The Article on Wikipedia: “Russian War Crimes” Sub category- “Mass Rapes”

Following the Red Army’s capture of Berlin in 1945, Soviet troops raped German women and girls as young as eight years old.[73] Estimates of the total number of victims range from tens of thousands to two million.[74]

After the summer of 1945, Soviet soldiers caught raping civilians were usually punished to some degree, ranging from arrest to execution.[75] The rapes continued, however, until the winter of 1947–48, when Soviet occupation authorities finally confined troops to strictly guarded posts and camps.[76]

***************************************************************

When word that the Red Army was approaching Berlin in January of 1945; many of the German Women and Children left Berlin for the supposed safer confines of Dresden.

The Head of R.A.F. Bomber Command Arthur “Bomber” Harris is known for his sadistical war crime statement just prior to the Bombing of Dresden. “We’ll show the Russians we can win this war with our Bombers“.

But it wasn’t that simple.  They didn’t just massacre the people of Dresden.  Prior to the night of the 13th of February 1945, British fighters strafed the “German Trail of tears” from Berlin to Dresden, killing not only Women, Children and the Elderly, but even their pets.  What they couldn’t hit with their .30 caliber machine guns they hit with Bombs.

The Berlin refugees that made it to Dresden thought they were safe.  But that night 3 waves of 722 British and 527 American heavy Bombers made a ruthless Bombing raid on Dresden.  The Ordnance they were dropping were not conventional bombs, rather thermite “Fire Bombs”. The Bombs were not designed to explode a factory of building, but designed to start a “Fire Storm” which it did successfully.  It was the WWII equivalent to Napalm.

Dresden

I am at the point where this article is about to turn into a hateful rant.

So I will just post the speeches given by F.D.R. and Winston Churchill in regards to the Mass Murders (War Crimes) that took place in 13 cities at the close of the war in Germany.  Then I will make my statement in closing.

“We have got to be tough with Germany and I mean the German people, not just the Nazis. You either have to castrate the German people or you have got to treat them in such a manner so they can’t just go on reproducing people who want to continue the way they have in the past.” ~ Roosevelt

Dredeaths

No these are not Jews.  They are Germans.

FDR’s Justification for the genocidal bombing of Germany.

Operation Thunderclap was designed to kill civilians (NOT SOLDIERS) fleeing from the Red Army for their own safety because both FDR and Churchill were afraid of the so called German Race. The targeted cities of operation Clarion were nothing more than state sponsored murders. No better than Hitler’s war on the Jew. (Nuremburg was targeted because it was an “Ideological city”) Britain killed 3 times as many German civilians as U.S. Bombers. Britain hit Germany with 20 times the payload Germany hit Britain with.

You must understand that this war is not against Hitler or National Socialism,  but against the strength of the German people, which is to be smashed once and  for all, regardless of whether it is in the hands of Hitler or a Jesuit priest.” ~Winston Churchill

Yes, War is Hell and Hitler and his cronies committed the worst war crimes imaginable.  But That was Hitler, not the German people.  It brings shame to me to know that America had a part in this atrocity.  The same F.D.R. that allowed America to participate in these lawless executions, also incarcerated 110,000 Americans of Asian ethnicity on the West Coast of The United States.

All I can say to the German people is: Ich bin sehr traurig.
