Turn On Tune In and Rise Up!

Posted in Change, Future by guittard on September 29, 2009

Music and art can change our World for the good. You already know how chaotic it is these days if you are awake: Swine Flu hype, G20 Riots, Vaccinations, Nuclear Standoffs, RFID chips, health care arguments, economy, Iraq War, terrorism, the New World Order, 1st amendment violations, unemployment, and the list can go on and on.

Now if we all rise up together we can push the oppressive things out of the way. I have compiled a Jamendo only playlist of artists I really like because of their honesty and musical quality. Please download at the link below and pass around. We can do this. It isn’t over and as long as we are breathing we can do something.

And here is another idea: If you can play guitar or piano, sing or write, get going and make a song about whatever you are going through. No matter what. Flood the internet with your viewpoint. Let’s not give in to the elite bullies in charge who want to manipulate, con and destroy us with their fear-mongering. These are all distractions.

if you paint or draw do that, too. Flood the internet with your world. We have more numbers behind us than those elite. They hide behind their power and wealth. Come and get going.

Make youtube videos, too and post. Do it!

Here’s where you can play or download the playlist for free:

Wake Up Now Americans!!!

Posted in Family, Life, Society by guittard on February 20, 2009

A lot of stuff is going on right now that is more than mind-boggling.  There are a lot of folks out there that have been negligent, ignorant, selfish and greedy.  This I believe is why all this bailout, stimulus package has come about.

Do you think that throwing money at these people will help?  No!  Because it is an internal problem of the mind.  It is bad habits and total disregard for doing the right thing.  Yeah, in the old days people worked hard to get somethere.  There are a lot of Americans still today that do work hard to get somewhere. 

My Great Great Grandfather immigrated from France in 1846 to Ohio.  He didn’t know English.  He learned it and struggled his way to become a country doctor in New Bedford, Ohio.  He struggled through hard winters and cared after people with pneumonia and other diseases of the day.  There were no cars and he went around by horseback making calls on patients and would be gone from home days at a time.  THIS IS AMERICA!

Many people have the “lottery” mentality wishing for everything under the sun to come there way without any lifting of fingers.  It is sickening.  I believe America will fight the good fight.  There is something higher at play, here.  Will we exist as a nation of hard workers or a nation of “lottery” lovers.  The time is now to wake up and not settle for the mediocre, “I can’t” mentality.  Get up, stand up, rise up!  For God, For Country, For Honor!

Whose in charge here?  We have forgotten what the country was made of.  Overseas we get trashed for how America is now.  They expect us to lead!  How can we lead if we can’t even see through the confusion and chaos?  I lived overseas for two and a half years and I was confronted on few occasions about American Politics.  Let’s put it aside and go back to our roots.  It’s burning within each of us.  And by the way, Mr. Attorney General, Americans are not cowards.  Shame on you!  They stand for what is right.

Serving Two Masters

Posted in Life by guittard on January 7, 2009

Okay, so I’ve been back in the States for over a month now.  It was as if I was skydiving back into this bombed out zone.  I’ve been bombarded with talk on “Bail Outs.”  It’s getting rather old and funny now.  Actually a man on the street asked me for money but he used the word “bail out.”  I think most Americans are obsessed with money and I have way back when chosen to not have money guide my life decisions.

I write this now without a job or that security blanket that everybody is obessed about.  You know the insurance package, the benefits, etc.  I think there is a lot more to life than benefits and insurance and pay raises and working up the ladder and new cars, and houses, and loans. 

And I am aware that once you have kids, and a wife that things change but I will keep my head to the grindstone as they say.  Money is not bigger than God.  I just spent 2 1/2 years over in a poor country called Bulgaria.  It’s a joke how materialistic America has become and I intend not to fall in this trap. 

I know what it is like to have money.  I lived the high life in California for three years before 9/11 tanked the stock market in 2001.  I thought like everybody else.   But when you lose it you begin to think something else is more important.  Back in an article I was in the Dallas Morning News I told the newspaper lady interviewing me that I wouldn’t settle.  I think a lot of people have settled for  a mediocre unfullfilling, meaningless life.  I have had a rough time of it with this decision but it’s not over.  As long as I breathe, I can live.  America needs this!!

Matthew 6:24 (New International Version)

 

 24“No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.
