Happy Memorial Day to all Veterans

Memorial Day is a day that our nation celebrates and pays respect to Armed Forces veterans that serve, have served, and those that sacrificed their life to provide the freedoms we enjoy every day.  As a veteran, I am proud to have served and I thank you for the well wishes you will be giving me and my fellow comrades on Monday.

I’m not soliciting “Thank You’s”.  This message stems from me thinking about the upcoming weekend and "veterans" in general.  I mean by definition, a veteran is someone who has had long service or experience in a particular occupation or field.  If we use that explanation you are a veteran…a veteran of a craft, an expertise, or the life you lead.  One of my favorite quotes is by Teddy Roosevelt.  Here it is:

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

See, you are a veteran, because you get up and you get into your arena and you get marred and sometimes come short in things.  You don’t stop, you don’t slow, you don’t quit…you get right back up the next day and enter the challenge ever convinced you’ll do more or better today than you did yesterday.  You run, jump, swim, paddle, whatever in order to get to your goal.  That is the energy and passion that puts you in a place that not many others will venture into because they fear failure.  You are battling like a soldier on a mission.  If you are not doing that or being what Teddy describes, well then, that is the ultimate failure. 

So you veterans of skill, take a minute during the long weekend to update your status, tweet, make a video, write a letter, buy a beer, and/or shake the hand of a Armed Forces member and then continue toward your triumph of high achievement.

Have a Happy Memorial Day weekend,
SGT Benjamin Ortega

The antients used Christinaity to initiate the "Beginnning of The End". Along the way they used it to initiate other tools which they will use to further mankind into decay and towards the Apoocalypse:::USA, "democracy", capitalism/corporations.
Of the tools they have used, religious, political, economic, social is by far the most damaging and seems reserved for those who have experienced each tactic:::
The god's social tool promoted moral decay, whether sexual, behavioral, professional, etc. It created an enviornment where indecency is the norm.

The dogs are dead.
And they're still incurring evil from their prior life(ves).
Junior Seau is a good example::The real, a 20-something in her next life, making progress, so the gods allow her clone host fake to committ suicide, allowing her off the hook incurring evil in her prior life. AND close the restaurant, her legacy in capitalism.
Al Davis should be so lucky.
The antient's leaders, politicians, celebrities, corporate executives, scientists/professionals are clone host fakes, fresh out of high school who woudln't know their ass from a hole in the ground. Without the gods doing their jobs THROUGH THEM they'd only be good for playing with themselves.

Because of their use of clone host fakes the gods have created a blameless society where nobody takes responsibility for the destruction which has occurred.
The BODs, CEOs and wealthy are fakes fresh out of high school, the gods no longer push anyone into it and instead used temptation, and the result is devistation the gods won't "make up" to the disfavored anymore.

There was a very real perception that bi-racial was much worse for the white than it was for the person of color. The liberal culture, which was designed and promoted with the god's tools to achieve their Apocalyptic goals, screamed racism when there was a very reasonable explanation for this reality::::
In this white punishment known as the United States the person of color has already adopted the disfavors/temptations intended for another race. But by associating/mating with a person of color the white is newly adopting the disfavors of another culture.
And this is the reason why people of color are not welcome in the United States. The gods control everything:::The perception they want to create, the thoughts they want you to have.
People of color can't recover from absorbing the temptations from two cultures. And why they become more and more like so many blacks in America:::Veterans at absorbing the temptations of two cultures.
To further illustrate this is why California's educational system/funding was ranked #1 when California was white:::Education being the basis of the affluent economic system. Now even public higher education has become unaffordable.

The gods behave monsterously in the course of managing Planet Earth, matching our decay, but they demand people be good if you are to have a chance to ascend as a child in a future life.
Not only is doing the right things important (praying, attoning for your sins, thinking the right way:::accepting humility, modesty, vulnerability), so is avoiding the wrong things important as well:::"Go and sin no more".
You NEED active parents who share wisdom to have a real chance to ascend into heaven in a future life, and you MUST be a good parent as well to have that opportunity in your next life.
