***** GOD BLESS PORTMAN. The Black Swan star’s directoral debut – based on Amos Oz’s A Tale of Love and Darkness – explores the ‘mythology’ surrounding the birth of the Jewish state. Is she ready for the inevitable backlash?
***** nd. Like turning over for more sleep after the alarm... HOW MUCH WE ADORE OUR DENIAL OF OUR FELLOW CREATURES NEEDS, SUFFERING.... I FEEL LIKE I NEVER UNDERSTOOD, UNTIL NOW.
My point isn't to dis my dad. If I could select anyone in history to be my dad, it would be him.
My point is to learn from my experience of this near greatest of all people I've ever known of.
He loved all of humanity, all of creation, unconditionally.
But he loved me nearly more than everything and everyone... and in that it was conditional love.
I wish he had loved me no more, and no less, than he loved every creature, all of creation.
I lost decades, my fault, on craving the supreme love he had for me. There was never any joy in that, There could NEVER be Joy in that - conditional Loving. Pleasure, yes. Lust, yes. Loving, no. Joy, no.
My life is now fully of his other side, Unconditional Loving - Immensely Painful with the pain of the world. Infinitely Loving. Infinitely Joyful. Every breath.

***** SPDF Day 52-29: I was thinking today, it is more clear to me than ever that all is lost... Democracy, near all that is good, near all of Creation, Palestine, the American Soul... but everyone, anyone, can be Saved, in this Life... from the degenerating, disintegrating world around them... if they, when they, as they... forget their own life, and devote their every breath to the neediest in the world. This is Heaven, Salvation, and no one can deprive them of it... but themselves. More than ever before it is desperately important that we each strive for this Salvation... that we might increase by whatever miniscule amount... the likelihood that someone else too might find the Path.
***** nd SPDF: Our Devotion to personal (and 'family') survival and pleasure... has finally doomed humankind, and all of creation. We've insanely embraced the way of 'cancer' over the way of Life. Our parents, the Creating generation, birthed the suicidal Consuming generation.
***** SPDF: I am adult-long devoted to human-crucial success, and to obstruct attempts likely to end in disaster.
This characteristic of mine has been true of me throughout my adulthood. It was central to who and what I was in my college and advanced degree educational life. It was centrally true of me during all of my business career. And it has been true of me ever since., I suspect, I am quite sure, it will be true of me until I take my last breath or degenerate into a different being psychologically.
My constitution is such that I am only interested in, I am only able, to participate in things that I think are monumentally important to humanity and to creation, and I am then unable to not devote myself to seeing what would constitute success, what would constitute failure, and to devote myself to the former and to stand in the way of the latter.
I've often thought, over many years now, I've often shared over many years now, of the example of the Space Shuttle Challenger. The space shuttle challenger blew up. It has been quite well documented that the failure was due to a part, an o ring, and my understanding is that quite clearly an engineer, or several engineers, knew of the potential risk before the launch, before the explosion. I don't know the details of that event beyond what I just said, but my life has been centered around somewhat life and death ventures so I know the territory quite well.
I know how desperately a team like that Challenger launch team wanted to meet deadlines, meet goals, have a success. I know the pressures on that engineer, or engineers, that had negative news, had bad news. I don't know of any life and death heroics that that engineer, or those engineers, waged to attempt to stop that tragic flight. They may have done so, but I'll guess they did not.
Either way, I'm not suggesting the problem was primarily theirs. Near certainly the problem was systemic, enterprisewide, the wrong value on success, lack of value on avoiding disaster.
Throughout my adulthood my devotion has been to achieve both mission critical success and to avoid mission disaster, to avoid enabling the masses of people involved that were not devoted to both.
On enterprises I've had some substantial successful impact, and much failure.
But I have never failed to make the attempt regardless of personal cost to me. And I suspect this will always be true of me.
***** "Who wants to put on the posterboards, go out to the street corner, and rant?... There is not a politician on earth wants to tell his or her constituents, "We've probably already blown our chance to avoid substantial suffering, but if we work really hard and devote our lives to the cause, we can somewhat reduce the even worse suffering that awaits our grandchildren."

***** My Future Plans... TINY MOBILE 'HOME' FOR A HOMELESS ACTIVIST (as was Jesus before us) (If you want to help, let me know)
LOL... some interesting voice-typos I see below, too. LOL. 'urine' in stead of 'yearn,' for example.
Actually, my second issue is our treatment of the world's poor generally, and the poor and homeless in the United States specifically. And really there is a second element of that, the lifestyles that we all aspire to, consuming hundreds, thousands, 10000 times our share of global resources, and by every objective measure making our selves less happy than countries like Scandinavia, Cuba, other countries that spend a tiny fraction of what we spend or aspire to spend... and have substantially greater joy, substantially greater quality of life.
A. Am I correct that it still is the law that except in high security areas it is 'legal' to sleep on the sidewalk (quite sure it is);
nd. Such a SHOCK! LIBERALS SIT AND IMPOTENTLY WHINE WHILE RETHUGLICANS GUT PUBLIC TRANSIT... AND THERE IS AN ACCIDENT. AMAZING!!!!!!! WHO WUDDA THUNK???
* For maybe 4 days now my body has felt very tired, as always happens after hospital visits for me, and anesthesia (colonoscopy), but other than that, I feel really normal... no obstructions, normal bowel movements for the first time in 3 years.....
* Note, when I broke the fast 20 days ago, that day I realized the farmers market was open, bought and consumed organic sauerkraut to restart the wee beasties in my gut... never paid attention to that... my bowel, when not obstructed, has bee NORMAL EVER SINCE! Greek yogurt, too.
* Sat and Sun I was at the White House to Free Palestine. Not since - too fatigued, weak, and too hot out, for me, yet. Today I have some tasks to execute. I expect to be on Capital $ Hill Thu and Fri; White House, Sat and Sun.
* Also, I'm spending time close to toilet while I learn the new rythms of my newly 'normal' bowel... when I can eat so I don't have to rush to toilet while I'm on post at White House... or Capital $ Hill.
* I am spending my time online in deep study of a range of issues - Israel's mutilation of Palestinians, TPP, chr'stian zionism, the Republican brain, Gross National Happiness (GNH) and related subjects, Happiness Psychology, Judaism (healthy and malignant cultism / zionism), etc....
* I expect this may be my last, or one of my last SPDF posts. I've always found that the end of the fast, trying to take food on a body that has forgotten, and in whom the wee beasties in the gut have died... is the most dangerous. This one was soooooooo dangerous that the docs kept me in hospital on watch for emergency surgery about 8 days due to 5 bowel obstruction events including a complete obstruction where the NG tube released a gargantuan 2 liters of stuff within 120 seconds. Hence the 52 days minus 20 days... a 72 day Offering, Ransom to Reedeem Palestine. Yes, to no avail.
* I now have the expectation of future bowel obstructions... due to the scar tissue from my cancer and other abdominal operations... and the damage done by each of the last 5 obstructions these last 20 days. The docs could operate but they are way loath to because, well, it would just create more scarring (the cause of the obstructions), and could damage the intestines... which is way dangerous. So, I just wait for the next one, and eat cautiously in the meantime.
* Within the next week I expect to finalize the Stop Palestines Death Fast Book.
* I have a thought I'm extremely passionate about for a way to amp up my four activist areas - Stop Palestines Death, Stop Ecocide, Creation Economy (near zero consumption, near total 'free' contribution living), and Humanity for we Homeless... all with one, relatively expensive (up front, zero over the years) tactic. It may push the boundaries of high-security DC tho my intent is nothing of the sort, and the limits of any financing I can secure... but I am exploring every option.... including something that would put my health insurance at risk, but for these causes, none of us can afford to be conservative... if there is anyone now, or in the future, on earth, that we Love. If I can work out the details I'll be providing the opportunity for folks to chip in to make it happen.

They finally released me about 5 p_m. The doctors are not hopeful that we have seen the last of this. Although they now think that these situations were exacerbated by my 52 day hunger strike, they do not consider that a major factor. With the abdominal surgery I've had, the liver section, the colectomy, the appendectomy, the hernia operation.... There is a lot of scar tissue inside. And each episode, of obstruction, and I've had 6 or 7 in the last 4 months, increases the odds of the next 1 occurring. Could occur tonight, tomorrow, next week, next month.....
Feeling quite symptom free so far tonight. My spirits are very good. I think I am adjusting to a different, new normal for my health. Time to get back to work.
I hope and expect to hit the white house early early tomorrow morning and Sunday morning, staying until late evening. On capitol hill Monday through Thursday early until late I hope. Working to ease the life of it least 1 person in Palestine if I can.
***** SPDF Day 52-15: Israel, the psychopathic nation. Is Zionism a collective personality disorder?
Justice is love expressing itself. Dominic Crossan paraphrase. 15 years ago or so a Methodist pastor, an African American woman in an upper class white church that I attended, told me at a conference one time, James, you love justice more than anyone I've ever seen. I replied strongly, and respectfully, that I strongly disagreed. I said, it is not justice that I love, but people. 12 years later now I realize that we were both correct. I learned in a Dominic Crossan book on the man Jesus, the historical Jesus, that I read about a year ago. In the book, one of his later ones, possibly on the Lord's Prayer, he said something like justice is love expressing itself. I think that's exactly right. Brilliant. Monumentally important understanding.

**** CRUCIAL.PLS READ. 'if Israel dropped its guns, not a single resident would be alive within days. If Syria, Hamas, the PLO, and Hezbollah droped their guns, there would be peace in the middle east.' ( this comment from a high school classmate from the white, criminally elitist, Wall Street banker suburb in northern New Jersey, Short Hills, in which I was raised and indoctrinated to my life of sociopathic white overprivilege, exploitation, subjugation... ).
MY REPLY. 'You are right. I stand corrected. You make a good point.
That's why the white plantation owners in the south needed to oppress, enslave, subjugate the n******. That's why the white European colonists needed to exterminate upwards to 100 million native Americans. That's why the white Europeans in South Africa needed to so savagely oppressed the blacks, stealing their resources, stealing their land, from those non white savages. That's why the white Australians have needed to exterminate and opress the Aborigines. That is why you white supremacists needed to exterminate upwards of 100 million blacks in the Congo. It is why you needed Jim Crow in the south, and your oppressive, white racist police forces across the United States today.
And yes, as you correctly assert, that is exactly why Israel today needs to imprison the rightful owners of the land between the river and the sea, those by nature, genetically, inferior, savage, godless Arab Muslims who demonstrated their subhuman, savage, evil, warlike, terrorist... nature by having the audacity to live peacefully with the 3% minority Jews for thousands of years in the land of Palestine, in their 500 villages, and their relatively advanced, civililized, peaceful, Godly, culture. It is why Israel needed to preemptively mount a massive terror campaign, Plan Dalet, in November of 1947, mount 30 to 50 atrocities including the rape of women, the summary execution of old men, pregnant women, children, such as in Deir Yassin, in November of 1947, expelling through terror and force 250 thousand of the native inhabitants against all international law, against the UN Charter that allowed for the creation of Israel, and against their explicit promises to the United Nations . It is why, among the population that unlike Europe had welcomed them as protection from the Nazis, it is why they needed to carefully and aggressively build military units in anticipation of the ethnic cleansing, incremental genocide, campaign that Ben Gurion engineered and preemptively launched in November 1947, and it is why every day since with ever increasing savagery, the white Israelis have needed to persecute, torment, terrorize, and terminate the Palestinians.
Unless you sociopathic white state terrorists oppress, exploit, rape, colonize, ethnically cleanse, mass murder , exterminate... the non-whites, they will kill you, you a assert, over, and over, and over, and over.... .
The only slight problem with what you say is that your argument is based on three things that are just ever so slightly questionable:
1. Ignoring that you white supremacists are the ones that actually do the mass murder, state terrorism, consummate deceit, consummate lives, unending exploitation, unending terrorism ,
2. It is not their behavior, the non-whites, but you're pathological rhetoric, insane, savage lies and propaganda about what the non-whites will do, that suggests that they would kill someone. Not their behavior. But hey, who's going to value their behavior over your lies, deceit, and propaganda. Of course what you whites say matters, and what they don't do, as inconvenient for us that may be, doesn't matter.
3. The non-whites ( any and every oppressed, occupied, population ) by international law have the right to resist by any and every means available the war criminality of you white, racist, bigoted, sociopathic, state terrorist colonizers, oppressors, exploiters,, robbers, subhumans... .
Have a nice day
12 p.m. update: The surgical team just came in and evaluated me. The head surgeon wants me to go back on regular diet immediately. IV removed. It is not that they are doubting any of my symptoms. it is simply their judgment that we should give it more time and see if my system can learn to cope with the incoming food. I should receive lunch momentarily. I'll have dinner. a meal tomorrow morning. If all of that goes well then they will discharge me tomorrow and we will see what happens. If and when there is the onset of another event then they have decided to administer a test that in time lapse watches the food go through my intestines so that they can better spot what is going on, where, more exactly.
