“All This is That” – the Beach Boys

I’ve never met Joe LoBrutto Psychic Medium in person. A year ago, something told me I may be crossing paths with him and to be ready. So I got my baseball bat and waited. Then I realized that voice inside my head was telling that this was a good man and not to be frightened. Soon I would start to see his name at random events and times. The voices again were telling me to reach out to him, that he was on to something.  Big.  I went by his website and left a comment.

Since then, we have spoken many times and I have even been on his radio show.  It was great meeting and talking with another male intuitive, especially one with his heart in the heavens and his butt on the ground.

Joe said he had a book coming out and he would send me one.

I just received  “Is There More to Life Than What We Know?”. This book is more than a “How to”  (although there are excellent tips and exercises to improve intuition). The writings  are a platform for Joe’s ” Spirit Guides” to bring messages of hope and peace in a way that’s  beautifully easy to understand.


The world is changing and the story of this book is how to best prepare for the earthly and spiritual events ahead. These guides (my favorite is the humorous ,Celtic spirit named Patrick who teaches that laughter raises our vibrations) give us insight to heaven, life after death, angels, extraterrestrials, and Jesus. There is no doubt that LoBrutto has tapped into guidance greater than himself  and does a great job of  showing us the ups and downs of finding that guidance. The book is an enjoyable read…kind of like riding in the car with a friend while he tells stories of places you’ve never been and can’t wait to get there!

Thanks again Joe for my signed copy of the book. It now serves as an educational tome that I utilize with my clients. The book reminds me of how important trust is in this line of  work. I’m learning to trust my guides much more these days….

The book is available at Amazon.com

Here is a rare video of Joe in action…

‘I was lyin’ in my room and the news came on t.v.superman2
A lotta people out there hurtin’ and it really scares me

Hey love and mercy that’s what you need tonight
So, love and mercy to you and your friends tonight…”

“Love and Mercy”- Brian Wilson

Did you see today’s breaking news? A former health insurance executive just went on record saying that right-wing mobs at town halls are the result of “stealth efforts by health insurance companies.”1 And The Huffington Post reports that dirty energy companies are helping bankroll the mobs.2

It’s infuriating—but the good news is that everyday folks are fighting back. And the great news is that we’re making strides. In city after city, MoveOn Councils are proving to the media that the vast majority of Americans support the change agenda that President Obama ran on.

As we ramp up our “Real Voices for Change” campaign, here are some recent inspiring stories from MoveOn Councils around the country:

* We’re keeping it positive. At a town hall in Charlottesville, Virginia, national media were expecting a hostile and extremist crowd—but Rep. Tom Perriello was met by a large and very friendly group. NBC reported, for the most part the crowd was subdued and in support of reforming the system.3 An event with Rep. Joe Sestak in Philadelphia, where the local MoveOn Council helped to turn people out, was “overwhelmingly civil.”4 In Denver, at a high-profile event with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a few right-wing protesters compared President Obama to Hitler—but progressive protesters vastly outnumbered them.5

ReaganAndSuperman* We’re making direct contact with decision-makers. At a Jobs Fair in northwest Indiana, Council Coordinator David Lambeth handed a flyer supporting a REAL public option directly to Senator Evan Bayh—a key vote on health care reform—and had a quick conversation with him. The Council had organized a flyering event at that Jobs Fair precisely to create such a face-to-face opportunity.

* The media is taking notice. Our signs and footage from MoveOn events are all over the news, including several national spots on MSNBC and NBC Nightly News (one of the most-watched shows on TV). And in one wild moment, conservative Tom Tancredo—a former Colorado congressman—actually waved a MoveOn health care sign on MSNBC!

* We’re getting good responses from members of Congress—even in “red” states. In Johnson County, KS, the Council organized a “honk and wave” outside of Rep. Dennis Moore’s office. (Rep. Moore is a “blue dog” who supports the public option.) As Organizer Ian Rogers reported:

Despite some right-wing protesters who showed up and tried to disrupt the event, the members stayed strong and their efforts paid off. About twenty minutes after the right-wing protesters showed, Rep. Moore himself drove by theheathcareprotest2 honk and wave. He honked, the tea-baggers booed, and Moore gave the thumbs up to our people and honked again.

Thank you so much for all you’re doing to push back against the misconception that right-wing extremists speak for all of us. And there’s much more to do in the weeks ahead—keep it up.

From the SingleWoman.com website …..

If you are a single woman, right now you are the forgotten constituent in this very important healthcare reform debate.

202px-Loislane_comicsIn previous articles, we’ve explained that single women in their twenties – pay more than men the same age.

(I guess that’s a way for our insurance companies to tell us that we’re high maintenance. That’s okay: they are slowly taking away the once-included- in- your-premium preventative healthcare that makes that an issue — you know, things like pap smears and and mammograms.)

And despite paying more than our male counterparts, we also make less than them, which means healthcare costs are a bigger portion of our overall income.

Isn’t any surprise that many women can’t afford any healthcare at all?

So, who is keeping you from getting a government-paid benefit enjoyed by every other First World country?

Your elected officials. These are the same people who have their own, generous healthcare plans — thanks to you, who voted them into their positions.

Worse yet, they are being paid by our insurance companies, the pharmaceutical companies, and hospital corporations to make sure we never get the one thing every other government on earth offers its citizens: free healthcare.175126-wonder-woman_400

These companies are also sending mobs to shout down any town hall meetings where the issue of a government healthcare option can be discussed.

Well, we  have a voice, too.

Don’t be shouted down.

// Sign our petition here.

Our goal is 100,000 signatures by Labor Day, which we will then present it to the Senate and the Congress.

The simple truth: it’s now or never. If our elected officials know we’re watching the money flowing from us and to them, if they know our next vote will be to their competitors, they’ll have to listen to us.

So make your voice heard.

“Celebrate the News”- The Beach Boys

With today’s technology I find it easier and easier to find views similar to my own. Whether it be politics or music whatever I like, whatever my view, whatever my position I can find the group to support it. But is that where the wisdom is? If  I always surround myself with those who always support my views exactly, will I ever learn anything. Will I ever be challenged?

I don’t view myself as a conservative or a liberal. I’m somewhere in the middle. I feel as if there is more room for negotiation in the center. But lately, it seems like a lonely place. Is there room for pieces from both sides? Do I have to be right to be happy?

I just saw this clip, “Our Critics Keep Us Honest” on YouTube from a young Pastor named Andy Pliskin. Without a doubt this guy has a great take on this subject. Andy, thanks for the time you took to examine this and keep up the good “works”.

fox__friendsI spend a lot of time watching the news. Probably too much. I watch CNN,MSNBC,and FOX. Lately my opinion about FOX has changed. When I first began to watch I was impressed by the coverage of the troops during the war and rallied behind their support for the soldiers and their families. Being more of a independent, I understood the importance of having a network that would cover the more conservative slant of the election.

But now, I’m not so sure. With the addition of Glenn Beck and the hiatus of Alan Colmes , things aren’t so” fair and balanced”. There seems to be a lot of fear being broadcasted. That somehow all of us are about lose everything. At some point shouldn’t we be focused on what we want instead of what we don’t want?

Some of you may love the following article and some of you may hate it. I do think that Deepak Chopra’s blogpost gives us pause to think and that is important. Tell the world what you think. Its important ……

From Deepak Chopra.com-

It’s mysterious how swiftly a society can collectively change its mind. As rapidly as the financial markets crashed, so has Fox News’s credibility. What was gospel to an entire segment of voters and viewers just a few months ago has become a desperate flapping in the wind. Some may view this as part of the swing cycle that politics is heir to. But from the Reagan era forward, certain truths were held to be self-evident, and far from inventing anything, Fox News simply put the high gloss of mass media on them.

If you tune in to Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, or the network’s humbler toilers in the vineyard, their tactics haven’t changed. They must be shocked to find themselves stranded, all the more because it seemed to happen overnight.

In the spirit of Emerson’s dictum that evil is the absence of good, it’s worth recalling where good was absent just a year ago. Here are the working beliefs of the Fox News credo.deepak

Article 1: The worst aspects of human nature are actually cherished freedoms.
This is Fox News’s main rallying cry. Hating minorities, despising gays, ridiculing women’s rights, and slandering the ACLU all fall under the rubric of precious liberties.

Article 2: God loves gun owners.
Fox News rabidly seizes the high ground when it comes to law and order, an issue that is seen primarily as a loaded gun under every pillow and a triple-bolted front door.

Article 3: Patriotism is the last refuge of ratings wars.
Here the old axiom that patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels has been updated (but by no means abandoned). Every Fox News commentator earns his battle scars by wrapping himself in the bloody flag, without ever personally endangering his own skin, of course.

Article 4: Ideology is way better than thinking.
Pre-chewed ideas are more easily digested than actual thinking. But ideology goes one better by answering every doubt in advance. Thus Fox News is never in doubt. Truth is as automatic as a gum ball machine.

Article 5: The mind’s primary use is for bellowing.
I advise any prospective guest on Fox News to demand that there be no shouting. This immediately decouples the mind of O’Reilly and Hannity. Their most basic assumption is that any guest, once shouted down, has lost the debate. (I tested this gambit out personally and can vouch for its effectiveness.)

Article 6: Shamelessness is next to godliness.
In other words, you can sin at leisure as long as you keep pointing out other people’s sins. Long a tactic enshrined in the Book of Hypocrisy, Fox News has turned holier-than-thou into a moneymaker.

Article 7: Don’t bother me with the facts. My mind is already closed.
This is really just a corollary to the belief in ideology, but it deserves its own chapter and verse because of the ironical light it casts on the Fox News logo, “Fair and balanced.”

Article 8: The little guy is always mad.
On the whole, Fox News tries to make the little guy feel that he is always right and those pointy-headed educated elitists always wrong. But sometimes the little guy proves tricky, as when he doesn’t like Republican deficits and foreign wars. Luckily, Fox News always has a fallback — the little guy is always blistered about something, and a little kerosene is a marvelous accelerant, as they say in arson investigations.

Article 9: “They” are about to get you — watch out!
The bulk of Fox News’s sanctimony rests on its pledge to look out for everyday working Joes. Since there is no record of the network actually protecting something realistic like clean air, freedom from assault weapons, and safety in the workplace, what is really being safeguarded is the right to be freaking paranoid every minute of the day.

Article 10: If I just said it, it must be right.
Here, as in several other places, Fox News is indistinguishable from a drunken frat party where not only is bellowing a sign of intelligence, but never backing down, however cockeyed your last statement may be, shows that you are a man.

I am not a communicant in this particular creed, so I’m sure I’ve left out some key passages in the gospel. For full knowledge one would have to delve deep into the Old Testament of Fox News (i.e., the minutes of the John Birch Society 1958-date). Daily viewing will keep one abreast of new anathemas (i.e., socialism) and potential saviors (Sarah Palin). Or you could take the easy way out and celebrate the waning of Fox News’s belief system and the cleaner air left behind.

congressWould health insurance companies have to compete if there was a public insurance option? Would it keep private companies honest? Does competition equal socialism?  Is public and private options the best way? Will all the great doctors of the US  move to some remote island? Will Congress actually fix this broken system called “health care”? Read on…

Get this: If Congress passes Obama’s plan and Americans are given the choice of a public health insurance option similar to Medicare, we could all save up to 30% on our health care premiums.1 That’s a huge savings, and we’d still get high-quality coverage and be able to choose our doctors.

And even if you choose to keep your current insurance, you’d save anyway. You see, HMOs and big insurance companies are the only game in town right now—so they overcharge us to boost profits and pay out CEO bonuses. If Obama’s plan passes, they’d have to compete with it, and their prices would have to be more honest.

Lower premiums for us means lower profits for them, so insurance companies are putting extreme pressure on Congress to drop the public health insurance option. But Americans deserve to have this choice—and it’s necessary to help rein in out-of-control health care costs.

Imagine how different things would be if we all had quality health care that costs up to 30% less than what we’re paying now. Would you use the money toward college for a child? A safe retirement? Or maybe you’ll finally be able to afford the treatment or medicines you need.

Can you click the link below to tell Congress how Obama’s public health insurance option would change your life? We’ll send all the answers to Congress, as part of our campaign to make sure we get real health care reform this year.


The simple truth is that having the choice of a public health insurance option would make all of our lives better. Here’s why:

  • Health care costs are spiraling out of control. From 2000 to 2008, health insurance premiums increased five times faster than wages.2
  • A public health insurance option would provide an affordable, quality alternative. Two new studies show that Americans could save 25% or more off of a traditional private plan.3 The New York Times says this would “keep the private plans honest.”4 They’ll have to lower rates and offer better value to compete.
  • Plus, a public health insurance option would be reliable coverage for all. Private insurers are notorious for dumping people with little notice.5 A public option would allow consumers who’ve been dropped—or just don’t like their current coverage—to switch to a steady public choice. 
  • Thankfully, the public health insurance option is gaining steam in Congress. The 77-member Progressive Caucus recently endorsed the policy.6 And the chairmen of five critical congressional committees came out in support.7

    Now we need to get the rest of Washington on board. Can you help by telling Congress how the choice would help you?
