...It's your job to consider ALL the evidence -- funny, absurd and horrifying truth... (?)
Geno,These are hand carved, ribbon grained Koa wood paddles. Koa is indigenous to the Big Island Hawaii, and nowhere else in the world. These paddles are great gifts, and make wonderful wall hangings. Each one is totally unique, and has a deep hand rubbed finish. See what you can do for a paddle sale. I typically get five hundred to six hundred, but one is yours to do with as you wish. If you choose to sell it I will ship it from here, you keep the coin.Keep it Real!******************So.... I guess I will ask for a donation of $450.00 and my friend will send this gorgeous paddle to you, he carved himself.As some know I am living out of my van and sure could use the dough.
I think we are by our angers and arguments... we need to allow each other to be exactly who we are.... we aren't the enemy... so please.... no more of the making anyone feeling bad.... That is directed at me too... I will bite my tongue as well...
Some fine craftsmanship there in those paddles. They appear to be specific for ocean paddling, and wouldn't last too long on the rocky rivers I've paddled. As you said though, they are more of a piece of art to hang on the wall. I'll keep my eyes open for a sale, however, Daryl's suggestion (1:04am) below is a good one! Good job on the tune as well!
Geno - You should give the measurements of the paddle in case somebody decides to use them for their intended purpose.Depends on a persons reach, ya know.And ya did good on the song; words in it are more real than you probably realize.
Thanks... I'll ask about the size....
My "dream job"? Carve things from wood, like furniture....Wasn't aware of the deep satisfaction that comes from creating with one's own hands. To me, wood is sacred.Last year I had to cut a piece of cedar with a saw in the garage with a hand saw. I was in heaven with the odor in the garage for hours from the sawdust!!Broke my heart a number of years ago when I read that the last existing "Liberty Tree" was cut down in some idiotville town in the south, I think. just broke my heart to read it.....~darylluke.
Reminds me of someone cutting down the worlds oldest known cypress here in Florida about a year ago.
Geno,Is there a reason you refuse to put up the hit-counter?~darylluke.
Is there any reason for wanting it?
we average 1200 a day, never more than 1350 never less than 900....
Geno,If you are where I think you are, stroll on down to that yacht club. Take some printed up pictures of it with you with the name of that wood. Perhaps the carver can give you some pics of him making them, too? People there have some coin, man. You know! I bet you can easily get a grand, and they'll put it over their fancy country club mantle at the bar or something. That grain is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful!Then, there is the high-end shop on Michigan Ave. Do some research to find where to go....Don't give this away for a mere $450, please!~darylluke.
I'm not in Chicago....
If someone knows someone of wealth who is into this.... these oars are perfection... crafted by "Phil" a first class wood worker... please forward this to them.
Bravo Geno........Unity is not uniformity. I am confident enough in who I am to not have to try and shape the world in my own image. People who are wounded build walls of self protection. They become "rock throwers." at anything outside of their self protected paradigm. Walls are built out of politics, religion, philosophy and wealth can be the anesthesia for it all. If this site is to have meaningful dialogue than all the trash talk needs to occur in therapy sessions behind closed doors not publicly displayed thru angry outbursts of ignorant bitterness. Otherwise we are relegated to background chatter, not a meaningful part of change.
well, we don't have a tiny fraction of the nastiness I see everywhere else but when someone dresses a person down the dialogue turns into a tennis match rather than a discussion...
totally agree. no need for it at all. Hope your really not living out of your van. if you are I have room for you here. Don't have much but always enjoy getting to know someone new.
Yeah, half in a van and half where I can borrow time, such as my old office.... They tolerate me although I don't pay rent anymore.... I can get in to use the bathroom and microwave and some times the internet....I have been homeless probably several years of my adult life so it's not new to me.... I have lived guerilla warfare style enough to know it's just another passing phase... a by product of being very anti-establishment....Thanks for the room offer but optimal freedom comes with not invading another's space...Unless of course you live in Acapulco Condo Heaven or whatever it is Hugh is hawking...;)
no, nothing fancy here in the rural country side I am afraid. just the basics. we have drawn down our lifestyle to its simpliest form of shelter and food. joy and happiness are not circumstancial in most cases. happy to lend a hand if you ever need it. Cheers!
Ah, so now we have yet another one who thinks they are fit to tell us what 'we need to do'.Neo, go suck an egg. If you want things your way, then go start your own web site.YOU are the one who needs a psych or therapy and 'i'm gonna give you some' if you dont get back in your own space, and let others have THEIRS!
ahhhh, now there is a intelligent response from a stable individual. Continue to hide behind those walls Abby, thats where you belong.
Neo - Save your breath; it will get you nowhere.You look real funny with your lips glued to John's ass.And its BECAUSE I'm stable that I can see straight through you. You are a big friend seeker, nothing much genuine about you. In here trying to be liked by everybody; well I don't care much for you one bit.Just another phoney xtian.
How funny. Can only laugh at you Abby. Really fun to watch your antics.
Beautiful paddles. I am an avid canoe enthusiast. Really appreciate the wood work on these works of art. I have several wooden canoe paddles that I cherish. Something almost spiritual paddling with them. Feels "trashy," to use metal or synthetic equipment. Pass along a heart felt "well done," to the craftsman.
Between you all bringing me good stuff as content and all the stuff on my other blog it's easy to keep up with a daily or every other day new post.... There is so much lost history and news to get up before who knows what and when happens...I would love if people continue to revisit old posts and add links or thoughts that will help others know how to question for themselves, what avenues to take. This can be a sort of library.Please look at the Yuri videos...Very significant history, psychology and sociology....
I have also told John I am more valuable as an Ally or conduit to people if they don't see me as his "boy"....It is a constant battle for me to be tough and reasonable and humbly accept those things that are beyond my wheel house as something someone more qualified than I can take on....We are a collective right now.... and as much as I generally reject that.... a prototype of a collective that allows debate without sly infiltration and subversion is a useful demonstration...Of course I have no idea who I am really talking to, could be just me and the Pentagon for all I know.
I for one have never considered you as anyone's boy.......
I had to wrestle off what was anger to opposing opinion on various things John and I got in heated debate on.... I need to keep the umbrage out of perspective.... It is dangerous because what if I did threaten something better by doing what I do.... finding the flaw....
One has to realize...some power structure wanted us to have these videos...Money masters... Loose Change.... Yri... One explanation is factions trying to get truth out,another explanation, trying to create civil war....identify the small fraction smart enough to care and isolate those who will never see the significance....and what if that is all about who will live and die?Could be you know.... Which brings me to another concept I think we should debate....We commonly state everything is relative....But when a billionaire plots to make more billions in questionable ways....Is that the same as a poor dude who takes ten dollars from petty cash to get some food?Or let's say the billionaire is addicted to money...wants more than he could possibly need and the poor guy is addicted to meth....He needs 50 dollars a day to feed his habit... We can argue the billionaire provides jobs and pays taxes and such....But the meth guy... provides jobs too...cops, prisons, social workers, prisons...funeral homes...and the meth guy got to where he is by certain billionaire funded agencies like the Pulitzer prize winning author Gary Webb outed in 1985 of the CIA putting crack cocaine into the black neighborhoods... obviously to create the problems the Wackenhutt private prison systems get huge contracts to clean up... among others...Some people say...help them to help themselves again....others say, they fell off the bike and it's their problem if they can't get back on....Every once in a while media shows us cities packed with poor people in squalor and yet I drive across this country and see hundreds and thousands of square feet of nothing but soil...It is said the entire population of 7 billion could have their own acre in Texas...So we are fed this idea of over population when my contention is... We can do algae farms, hemp fields, catfish farms...etc. Organically... and the so calledMONEYIs just a matter of a digital math equation of a floor and a ceiling... what comes in from the production and what goes out to the expenses...The greedy freaks who use their wealth to prey on children and power abuses want to be isolated by that huge divide between rich and poor but what I speak of is easily achievable as simple math and the determination to make it so...
Geno,I really like & appreciate these explanations you give for unposted questions to you. Kinda like you intuit the bloggers questions about/to you and you kinda ramble in a round about extremely coherent way.The reason I want a counter up here is: When new visitors come, it is one of the first things they look at. Me? I give a shit. Do it. Don't. It was about the blog, and not about me. Never is(usually). Kinda sums it up for how I feel in general, too.Sorry to hear about ur van. Smiled when you gave kudos/thanks to gifters.Though, lastly, I will find the energy to give a crap if you decide the unthinkable and burn this place down. At worse, pass it off. DO NOT DESTROY what is an obvious wonderful CREATION.~darylluke.
Abby,Kindly tone it down, please.Yet, maybe I am turning into a defeated pussy....So, carry on.... Enjoy yourself scratching & clawing.(There really is a better way to get ideas across.)~darylluke.
Daryl - I only have one point: I cannot stand ass-kissers. Period. The second point is I can't stand double minded people. (thats why I gave you kudos for your downright straightforwardness, crass, or not, its REAL)
sorry Geno....I am spread too thin right now....a lot of money out and none has come back in yet.....but it will ...in time....however....my door is always open....wife is not a bad cook....2nd best internet connection money can buy available for residential...
Your donation last month was very generous and no one has to feel they have to donate... What I would like to find is a wealthy Patriot who can keep me going... but the generosity of the poor and sort of surviving is humbling and embarrassing to even accept... Go RV!

Dearest Geno,The Duffster over at VT simply lays it out for us as an insider what is going on in the big agency's and the military in this over two year old article....http://www.veteranstoday.com/2010/10/08/gordon-duff-unrelinquished-power-the-military-coup-we-never-saw/The Duffster talks about the brain dead dominionist Christians....and believe me I sat in there church's for decades....they are not fit nor should they be in command of any agency or any military command and I will go farther there attitudes put there beliefs above those of their oaths to the constitution....They are in league with the Mormon's another christian cult and of course our pals the Zionist Jews ....what strange bed fellows....He talks about the military academy's taken over like West Point and The Air academy in CO.....by such folks and how the officer corps are now infested with such folks and control who gets promotion....Its worse than that and they stole nuclear weapons and the command structure is compromised with traitors...this is of course all very possible and I do understand how these structures do work...A young relative is back in the service now who used his two tours in war zones to get his education and he is now in a command position and he hates evangelical Christians for there absolute traitorous attitudes and their incompetance on duty and he plans to root them out...my understanding is that there are many more like him....The Duff is a huge insider and his posts are not neccessaryly directed towards us but toward those in the agency's and military...one has to identify the targets in any combat operation.... and that is what the duff is doing IMO....He has another great article on the unspoken civil war now going on in many levels of government....and the privitization issues of the agency's and in the military which handed power over to corporations that are indeed foreign enemy's....The Duff is right on the money IMO....and this is heavy shyt and its speak up or go to a focking camp and I ain't goin to one ....The Military has already put out a policy against prosletelyzing on duty and they plan on Courts Marshals for this offense....this is not the Military picking on poor Christians but rooting out problems....and more power to them....These Christians have what is called Reconstuctionist theology put simply that we as Christians must dominate all areas of society and military agency's and in other words what they have in mind is theocracy backed by military might pledged to our wonderful 51st state....And I love Stone's words...watch the Synogogue's and if they are empty and a drill is going on prepare to be nuked....I honestly do not think that this monsterous plan can succeed but ya never know....I think as Fulford and others have said that this will be and is being stopped...Yet desperate and crazy people do crazy desperate things....Nine
Hey John,If yer in Wisconsin we shall pick up Geno for a beer over at a great WI micro brewer...http://tyranena.com/bitter-woman-ipa/It is an India pale and is called bitter woman and I dedicate it to dearest Abby....Nine
Well I guess I am going to talk about it here and that is the subject of spirituality...And the concept of duality and what the Bible says or does not say...Most Christians of the fundamental nature subscribe to the absolute nature of good vs evil where I would view duality as out dated spirituality.Why? If God created everything and then put man into that creation as a free person than there was free choice....and with that choice came the choice to do evil....and where did that idea come from??It even says in the bible that you will know and become like "us" meaning like God himself....yet that is truth...and spirituality is within all and we are god as it were...So IMO, good vs evil or man vs woman or whatever else one can come up with is duality in its very nature.....The old testement vs the new....Some would say that there is a great field of energy out there that all are a part of and that the creation is part of this and that there is a source and some would say that all is energy or vibration....some would say that things are not dual in nature but singular in nature and that it is one or unified....good vs evil with evil running rampant in our world suggesting a huge imbalance and some would say that there is an imbalance of male/female energy....with a return of the power of the female energy in this new age....Some would say that male/female balance was always there but co-oppted by some for there own power....and that new spirituality requires a return to that balance....Of course these are things well above my pay grade....Nine
