Next "Countdown Free Clinic" -- Little Rock, AR. -- Saturday, November 21, 2009

The National Association of Free Clinics (NAFC) is the only nonprofit 501c(3) (ID# 56-2273242) organization whose mission is solely focused on the issues and needs of the more than 1,200 free clinics and the people they serve in the United States.

Founded in 2001 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., the NAFC is an effective advocate for the issues and concerns of free clinics, their volunteer workforce of doctors, dentists, nurses, therapists, pharmacists, nurse practitioners, technicians and other health care professionals, and the patients served by free clinics in communities throughout the nation.

Vision: To be a national voice and essential partner for building a healthy America.


Okay, Capitol Hill politicians, we're down to Health 'Insurance' Reform and some of you are still bucking the idea of an America where decent, timely health care is available to all the nation's citizens at reasonable costs. Now I know many of you have stock portfolios that may suffer a bit if the health, pharma, and insurance industries have their paws slammed in the great cookie jar by new legislation that aids and empowers the common good by putting corporate profits at abeyance. You can afford lower returns on your investments in the health industry sector for you have other lucrative cookie jars at your disposals.

And with my very low opinion of your morals, I believe that population control is part of your plans as you underfeed and un-house millions, prevent lower classes from getting medical care they need (including those made ill from eating chemical-laced foods your other portfolio pals invented), and outsourcing, then failing, to create jobs with which we may attempt to decently support our families.

But putting that belief aside, I ask you now to step out of the way, put controls on health care costs, and repair the health care mess you've allowed and enabled. If you don't step out of the way, your lack of common decency and shriveled humanitarian instincts will continue to hang out like a street walker's frilly bra strap which seems okay by you, for your plans include being ready for the revolution you're working furiously to inspire.

The anti-public-option ruling class should be ashamed that Americans must resort to free clinics and that some patients' conditions are beyond medical intervention due to lack of timely care. To be ashamed indicates you have consciences, yet as many people have remarked in recent years, you apparently have none, only artful rationalizations for your greed and selfishness.

Therefore, you must be led to improve your own karma by those who do have conciences and common good standards, for you made it plain long ago that you consider yourselves above such mundane considerations as being your brother's keeper. There you mess with a Higher Power than your own!

Well, here's a standing question for you from an author whose novels exposed the horrid social conditions of his day, and who expressed himself much better than this gnat of a blogger ever could:

Is it altogether a Utopian dream, that once in history a ruling class might be willing to make the great surrender, and permit social change to come about without hatred, turmoil, and waste of human life?

- Upton Sinclair, socialist and Pulitzer Prize winner (1943) for his novel, Dragon's Teeth.

So how about it, Republicans and GOP handmaidens of the Democratic Party?

As you dawdle and mount political theatrics, human beings are suffering grievously while you meet in your exalted committees which are paid for by the good graces of US taxpayers - some of whom are being forced by painful circumstances to attend the next 'public option' free clinic - if they can find one.

Astrology of Pres Obama and the Pharoah

If you have an interest on the question of who Pres. Barack Obama may be 'channeling' read this concerning the Nodal Axis of Destiny and other natal chart synchronicities for our 44th president.

Is Mr. Obama the personification of a famous Egyptian pharaoh? Is he Abraham Lincoln 'returned' to finish the job, perhaps?

Or: fill_in_the_reincarnation_blank for Pres. Obama who is certainly being asked to carry past life tasks forward (SN), based on circumstances most of which were not of his making.

To a Saturnian astrologer such as myself, this is enough to cause a world o'trouble even without Joan D'Arc and her warring Mars lurking behind Neptune's veils of unconsciousness and past-life theories.

This implies much South Node (unconscious; inherited) behavior and more than a little helping of projection onto others for what we should take responsibility for ourselves. No US president was ever handed the Oval Office reins with so few resources and umph to effect improvement.

Yes, I do want to believe that this isn't all part of a NWO script meant to herald riots across the globe. Many are already occurring and are often instigated by Mars and his short fuse of political bombs. Paid for by...someone...there's testy Mars, with Pluto's secret backing, continuing through the centuries to foment chaos in order to force change.

"Is it altogether a Utopian dream, that once in history a ruling class might be willing to make the great surrender, and permit social change to come about without hatred, turmoil, and waste of human life?"

-Upton Sinclair Sept 20, 1878; Sun Virgo-Moon Cancer's Images for Integration which melds the Sun's Virgo traits with the unconscious Moon in Luna's own sign of Cancer:

'A nutritionist serves his family organically grown chicken soup...The working mother...Two old Chinese women gossip about family problems as they work rhythmically in the rice paddies.' (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Chas & Suzi Harvey.)

Maybe the above Sinclair quote is a cup of steaming chicken soup, eh? Thing is, 'hatred, turmoil, and waste of human life' (aka, population control) are key parts of the restructuring agenda.

Now in my formative years, I was as happy a reader as anyone of such classics as Atlas Shrugged, Stranger in a Strange Land, 1984, Animal Farm - you know the list.

Brilliant authors provided literary ideas of horrible futures of totalitarianism and other nasty, anti-social -isms which may have resulted in quite explicit blueprints for those who needed such ideas to follow and mould to their requirements.

We may guess this, because they can read, too. And it was Edward Bernays' cynical use of his Uncle Sigmund Freud's work on mental/emotional control through the unconscious (1920s) that started the control-the-masses ball rolling in earnest and made possible our consumerism society which has now had the bubbled rug snatched out from under.

Since I recently posted a link to the BBC's excellent video series on Edward Bernays' work which enabled business and political use of public relations techniques (spark a 'need' unconsciously then fulfill it for a price) I will simply advise you to scroll below for the skinny on that thing we call consumerism and how it's been used against us by way of our unconscious desires.

You know, political candidates are merely products in the exalted world of manipulation and propaganda. We-the-people bought the poked pig the media and pundits kept pointing out to us - which is not to belittle Pres. Obama's talents - and now he must perform in lieu of all the swine before him who have led us to this sorry pass.

Lincoln's Sun is conjunct Mr. Obama's natal South Node, and vice versa. That's a large imperative imposed by the times which says that unconsciously, Pres. Obama will strive toward Lincoln's Solar goals, to be the best Aquarian he can be. The Sun in any chart, however, is not considered a karmic planet, but the Nodal Axis is.

That the current president may be aware of the links between them and their times can only aid Pres. Obama's journey on the path of balancing and re-righting as many of the wrongs of this Solar-based nation as he, in his presidency, has time to accomplish.

Otherwise, he may be 'channeling' in the dark.

Too bad so many bad actors insist upon standing in the president's way to the detriment of the common good. For with that, they obviously are not concerned, and they have their own plans, thanks.
