Can the lessons of history save the USA?

Can the lessons of history save the USA?

ben franklin

This article was written a few years ago…you tell me if this looks familiar now:


In 1887  Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at  the University of Edinburgh , had this to say  about the fall of the Athenian Republic some  2,000 years prior: “A democracy is  always temporary in nature; it simply cannot  exist as a permanent form of government. A  democracy will continue to exist up until the  time that voters discover that they can vote  themselves generous gifts from the public  treasury. From that moment on, the  majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public  treasury, with the result that every democracy  will finally collapse over loose fiscal  policy, (which is) always followed by  a dictatorship.”

“The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from  the beginning of history, has been about 200  years. During those 200 years, these nations  always progressed through the following  sequence:

From bondage to spiritual  faith;
From spiritual faith to great  courage;
From courage to  liberty;
From liberty to  abundance;
From abundance to  complacency;
From complacency to  apathy;
From apathy to  dependence; From dependence back into  bondage.”

The Obituary follows:

Born  1776, Died 2016

It doesn’t hurt to read  this several times.

Professor Joseph  Olson of Hamline University School of Law  in St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some  interesting facts concerning the last  Presidential election:

Number of  States won  by:           Obama:  19                    Romney: 29
Square miles of land won  by:      Obama:  580,000      Romney:  2,427,000
Population of counties won  by: Obama: 127 million  Romney: 143  million
Murder rate per 100,000  residents in counties won  by:  Obama:  13.2              Romney: 2.1

Professor Olson adds:

“In  aggregate, the map of the territory Romney  won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying  citizens of the country. Obama  territory mostly encompassed those citizens  living in low income tenements and living off  various forms of  government welfare…” Olson  believes the United States is now somewhere  between the “complacency and apathy” phase of  Professor Tyler’s definition of democracy,  with some forty percent of the nation’s  population already having reached the  “governmental dependency”  phase. If  Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to  twenty million criminal invaders called  illegals – and  they vote – then we can say goodbye to the  USA in fewer than five years.

Messages from water and beyond…..

Messages from water and beyond…..
Right Side Image

OK guys I wasn’t going to start writing again now but I feel COMPELLED to share this with you NOW!  I want to make a conscious effort to say more positive words. Because the fact remains that if we are made up of between 60 to 70% water, and this water is influenced in this way (see video) then what do negative words do to us?  To our children?  To our employees or the waitress down the street?

I have to become more aware of what I’m saying…… Please leave a comment if you feel so inclined.

Thank you,




Technology to blow your mind….

Sometimes when I’m feeling overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of negative things that we hear about everyday, it makes me feel better to know that people are out there inventing incredible things to make this world a MUCH better place.  So check this out:

Proof that thoughts influence health… and more.


“When your heart is open to possibilities,

you start to notice small things that can lead to enormous discoveries”

(Masaru Emoto “The Hidden Messages in Water”).

I’ve noticed lately…..after being stuck in a huge rut for AT LEAST the last 20 years……that once I opened the door to a new experience just a little bit, that the discoveries started to come at me at an accelerated rate. I’ve started to learn more and discover more each and every day.

Yesterday I received two books I bought from Amazon (both by Masaru Emoto” who wrote these books about water. He discovered that when he spoke positive words, like LOVE, the water formed crystals that were perfect, colorful & beautiful or when he spoke negative words like “Hate” the crystals that formed were imperfect, dull and ugly).

His publisher’s opening statement said:

“This book has the potential to profoundly transform your world view.  Using high-speed photography, Dr. Masaru Emoto discovered that crystals formed in frozen water reveal changes when specific, concentrated thoughts are directed toward them.  He found that water from clear springs & water that has been exposed to loving words show brilliant complex and colorful snowflake patterns.  In contrast, polluted water or water exposed to negative thoughts forms incomplete, asymmetrical patterns with dull colors.  The implications of this research create a new awareness of how we can positively impact the earth and our personal health”

The author himself goes on to say  “Modern researchers have shown that the condition of the mind has a direct impact on the condition of the body.”  I believe this is true and I’m going to start to write about this on a consistent basis…… I want to make this discovery WITH YOU….and together we can figure out what we have to do or think or say to change our lives and our health and to find the happiness that all humans search for their whole lives.

This is all for day as I’m super busy BUT I am going to write more as often as I can and as frequently as I discover these incredible new things.  PLEASE join me….and please invite your loved ones that you want to take along for this ride.

To conclude….let me say consider that we as humans start out as 90% water when we’re infants, then we gradually decrease our water content until we end up at about 70% in a health adult.  Imagine that if simple THOUGHTS and WORDS can influence the structure of water, and we’re made up of WATER…..then isn’t it safe to say that those negative or positive words are influencing our health and who we are?  Next time….what else are we influencing with our negative thoughts?  (or bank accounts?  Our love lives?  Our lot in life?)

God bless you all and talk to you soon.  Emily

(please comment….I so very much want to talk to each and every one of you…THANK YOU).



The Secret world of Animal Intelligence…

The Secret world of Animal Intelligence…

I found this story yesterday and checked to make sure it was legit…..but the results were inconclusive.  So let me know if you find out otherwise….BTW I’m so tired of being duped by Hollywood…..we all do have to be careful that we’re not just trudging along like a bunch of lemurs.  Ever since the Animal Channel ran that multi-hour “Mockumentary” about “mermaids” which I sat through INANELY from beginning to end, I’m afraid I’ve gotten to be a little jaded.  Seriously that irks me to no end…..we have so much great stuff we can learn and discover in this world…..what was the purpose of not only CREATING but having all of us sit through something that wasn’t even true?…..especially because they made it out TO be true.  We could have been doing something constructive….something that added to our purpose and being instead of deducted from it.  I promise you something, I will never share anything with you that’s not true, on purpose.

Lawrence Anthony

Lawrence Anthony, a legend in South Africa and author of 3 books including the bestseller, “The Elephant Whisperer.” He bravely rescued wildlife and rehabilitated elephants all over the globe from human atrocities, including the courageous rescue of Baghdad Zoo animals during the US invasion in 2003. On March 7, 2012 Lawrence Anthony died.  He is remembered and missed by his wife, 2 sons, 2 grandsons, and numerous elephants. Two days after his passing, the wild elephants showed up at his home led by two large matriarchs. Separate wild herds arrived in droves to say goodbye to their beloved ‘man-friend’. A total of 31 elephants had patiently walked over 12 miles to get to his South African House.  Witnessing elephants walkingthis spectacle, humans

were obviously in awe not only because of the supreme intelligence and precise timing that these elephants sensed about Lawrence’s passing, but also because of the profound memory and emotion the beloved animals evoked in such an organized way: Walking slowly, for days, making their way in a solemn one-by-one queue from their habitat to his house.

Lawrence’s wife, Francoise, was especially touched, knowing that the elephants had not been to his house prior to that day for well over 3 years! But yet they knew where they were going. The elephants obviously wanted to pay their deep respects, honoring their friend who’d saved their lives – so much respect that they stayed for 2 days 2 nights without eating anything. Then one morning, they left, making their long journey back home.


  Perhaps Animals are more intelligent and cognizant that we realize?  We humans have industrialized and commercialized the “manufacture” of animals and do you suppose that some day we’ll find out that these animals have a brand of intelligence that matches or even exceeds that which we have as humans?  All I can say is think about it.  Think about it…..
