ROBERT VENOSA has been a friend and a wonderful artist of higher realms.
He passed away on August 9th, but his art lives on. This week I have added some of his paintings into the art section below the news articles. Also I have added some art work
from his long time friend, wife, loving angel and also fantastic artist MARTINA HOFFMANN.
Check out my updated blog images towards the bottom.
As many of you know, I have been sending out this newsletter for over 7 years. I am committed to networking these articles and stay many hours a day researching. Our financial situation is very challenging as it is and the cost to keep the internet services also is a problem each month. I would like to thank the friends that have sent in donations to the service I provide. I am not asking for anyone to feel that they have to donate. My service is from the heart and it is a pleasure for me to outreach to as many people as possible. Many people write me back that they have benefited from the articles and thus the information provides a service. However, if anyone can send even a small donation to me through PayPal or otherwise, my family and I would be very very appreciative.
In any case, the 'links by george" will go on.
. We have a paypal contact at firstname.lastname@example.org

"Observe all men; thy self most." -Benjamin Franklin
"All war is based on deception." - Sun Tzu, in The Art of War
"The great thought, the great concern, the great anxiety of men is to restrict, as much as possible, the limits of their own responsibility." - Giosué Borsi
"With every civil right there has to be a corresponding civil obligation." - Edison Haines
"Whether or not you have children yourself, you are a parent to the next generation. If we can only stop thinking of children as individual property and think of them as the next generation, then we can realize we all have a role to play." - Charlotte Davis Kasl, Finding Joy, 1994
"The offspring of riches: Pride, vanity, ostentation, arrogance, tyranny" - Mark Twain

"As through this world I've wandered I've seen lots of funny men, Some will rob you with a six gun and some with a fountain pen." -- Woody Guthrie
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor." - Mark Twain
"One is absolutely sickened, not by the crimes that the wicked have committed, but by the punishments that the good have inflicted." - Oscar Wilde - (1854-1900)
"I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed." Martin Luther King, Jr.

"People can foresee the future only when it coincides with their own wishes, and the most grossly obvious facts can be ignored when they are unwelcome." - George Orwell
"None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
"We Americans are the ultimate innocents. We are forever desperate to believe that this time the government is telling us the truth." -Sydney Schanberg
"The general public are viewed as no more than ignorant and meddlesome outsiders, a bewildered herd. And it's the responsible men who have to make decisions and to protect society from the trampling and rage of the bewildered herd. Now since it's a democracy they - the herd, that is - are permitted occasionally to lend their weight to one or another member of the responsible class. That's called an election." - Noam Chomsky
"During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act" -- George Orwell
"Every ambitious would-be empire clarions it abroad that she is conquering the world to bring it peace, security and freedom, and is sacrificing her sons only for the most noble and humanitarian purposes. That is a lie, and it is an ancient lie, yet generations still rise and believe it! ...
If America ever does seek Empire, and most nations do, then planned reforms in our domestic life will be abandoned, States Rights will be abolished -- in order to impose a centralized government upon us for the purpose of internal repudiation of freedom, and adventures abroad.
The American Dream will then die -- on battlefields all over the world -- and a nation conceived in liberty will destroy liberty for Americans and impose tyranny on subject nations."
George S. Boutwell - (1818-1905) American statesman, Secretary of the Treasury under President Ulysses S. Grant, Governor of Massachusetts, Senator and Representative from Massachusetts
Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows that the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
That's how it goes
Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
Everybody knows that the captain lied
Everybody got this broken feeling
Like their father or their dog just died
