“Call of Duty” of Another Kind

Originally posted on Call of the Re-Wild:

I feel a Call of Duty, and I don’t mean the videogame. This post goes out to all the men and women who are addicted to video games like Call of Duty, or to TV,  the internet, shopping, their phone…whatever it is, it’s an addiction to distraction. Distraction from the sometimes mundane reality of one’s life and the fear of the unknown that comes when taking steps to change it.

So many people feel stuck, feel trapped in their jobs, trapped in whatever situation they’re in. They also feel a call to something more and are frustrated by the feeling that something is missing. Distraction is avoidance of that uncomfortable feeling. But sometimes we need to take a deep look at ourselves and get that reality check in order to figure out what we’re missing out on. Because what you’re missing out on is living your life’s fullest purpose.

You are on the cusp, at the beginning of a new and wondrous way of relating to one another as the Tsunami of Love continues to intensify and bring into the collective awareness the realization that Love is the only way to resolve issues and conflicts whether between individuals, families, political or religious belief systems, or nations.  It has taken you many eons to approach this point, this tipping point in human consciousness, and you should congratulate yourselves on the amazing progress that you have collectively achieved in the last three or four decades.

“Out there,” in the illusory world that you are helping to wake up, this does not seem to be the case, as conflicts and disagreements appear to be escalating, but what is in fact happening is that all the hidden…

Sunken ships discovered in the Aegean

28 July, 2014 – aprilholloway

A team of underwater archaeologists from Dokuz Eylül University’s Institute of Marine Science and Technology (IMST) have discovered eight new shipwrecks in the Aegean Sea, near Antalya in Turkey, according to a report in Hurriyet Daily News.  The ships are believed to belong to the Ottoman era and will be handed over to the Bodrum Museum of Underwater Archaeology for study and hopefully later display to the public.

The IMST, which trains underwater archaeology graduate students to investigation ancient shipwrecks, determine ancient sea trade routes, and examine ancient harbours and their submerged remains, was conducting underwater research on sunken ships between Datça peninsula and Antalya, when they discovered the eight new sunken ships.

This is one way to use up leftover grilled watermelon.

Wait, people grill watermelon?

Grilled Watermelon Salsa

  • 2 cups grilled watermelon diced small
  • 1 green bell pepper diced small
  • 1 small red onion diced fine
  • 1 large tomato diced small
  • 2 jalapenos diced fine
  • 2 tbsp basil cut into fine ribbons
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Mix everything together and season with salt and pepper. Let refrigerate for two hours before serving.

For those who are wondering here is how to grill watermelon: Slice melon into 1 1/2″ thick wedges. Discard rind. Rub sea salt into fruit and let stand over a rack in the sink for an hour. Rinse off fruit and pat dry. Drizzle with olive oil and grill over direct heat until slightly charred, about five minutes per side.

Israel

When I am speaking of Israel it is NOT the country, it’s the people in power. The people of Israel are as innocent as we are.
A few get into power and start to represent Nations, individual people are not the Nation.
We are not there to see what is happening, but you can go on history, who are friends with whom. And it’s country after country, some things are not what people say they are, you see it, and you can not see anything else but the truth, sorry.

I do not fault any race, because it is not regarding race, it’s
about the human race. That’s how I see it, and we all need love and concern.
Much luv and peace.

In 1848, French economist and statesman, Frederic Bastiat wrote, “The state is the great fictitious entity by which everyone seeks to live at the expense of everyone else.”

I would also add that the state has a habit – particularly lately — of perverting the meaning of words and the word of law to suit its own aims.

I served 22 years in the United States Army and come from a family of service to this nation, as my dad served in the Army in World War II, my older brother in Vietnam as a Marine, and now my nephew as the second Army officer and the fourth in the lineage of West combat veterans. To me, that’s the definition of patriotism, but not so in the case of our progressive socialist President Obama.

As they do so often, liberal progressives work hard to…

And where is the Lefts outrage over these Palestinian children’s deaths?

Originally posted on The Daley Gator:

As i have said before, the only thing consistent about the Left, is their inconsistency

Hamas killed hundreds of children in the construction of its extensive tunnel network, built partly to carry out attacks on children across the Gaza border in Israel. That report–confirmed by Hamas itself–emerged in 2012, not from the Israeli government, but the sympathetic Journal of Palestine Studies, in an article that otherwise celebrated the secret tunnel system as a symbol of Palestinian resistance to the Israeli “siege” of the Gaza Strip.

The article, “Gaza’s Tunnel Phenomenon: The Unintended Dynamics of Israel’s Siege,” was published in the Summer 2012 edition of the Journal by Nicholas Pelham, who writes for the Economist and the New York Review of Books, according to his bio. It is receiving new attention thanks to Myer Freimann of Tablet, an online journal of Jewish affairs, whose post about Hamas’s…

Former Ambassador: Muslims Attack Christians, and Obama Sides With Muslims

Originally posted on Socialism is not the Answer:

Conservative Tribune

President Obama seems to favor the Muslim world, particularly those who practice radical Islam, more than any other people belonging to a religious group.

Obama is currently funding Islamic terrorists in the Hamas organization as they continue to rage against Israel, and he’s even called for the Jewish nation to surrender to the demands of this group, even if it means sacrificing their safety.

Given his attitude toward radical Muslim groups, it wouldn’t be too far fetched to assume that the president would have little interest in the cruel ways that Islamic practitioners are treating Christians around the world, especially in the Middle East.

Christianity is under attack, here in the U.S., and also in Muslim countries, yet Obama has done nothing to stand up for religious freedom and help Christians fight off these aggressive attackers.
