Thanks 86! After School Program with Tee-Shirt

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "86 Scores again!":

I started seeing most organizations as After School Program with Tee-Shirt while I was studying how human organizations oriented to enact change work, or don't work, more accurately.  Having raised the question in my mind I started looking for organizations which had been successful.  This was depressing.  

I left the Libertarian Party, founded in 1971, because it was ineffective.  Instead of dispassionately identifying ways to accomplish the stated goals, freedom, justice, individual rights, it became bogged down in how to raise money and pay salaries for employees who, naturally, had not the foggiest how to accomplish their goals.  They wanted to be paid, first and foremost.  

 Worse, many of the most damaging innovations now being applied to policy originated in Libertarian Think Tanks.  Among these are privatization and carbon credits, both the brain children of Bob Poole, Founder of Reason Foundation and Reason Magazine.  Bob was a friend of mine but when it  became obvious privatization applied to the prison system was turning incarceration into a cash cow for corporations he stopped returning calls, to me and to other former friends.  Money trumped the vision for freedom.  

Now, you would have thought the Kochs could put profits on the back burner, but no, their motive for political action was money. Again, letting the love of money become the focus and refusing to look with honest eyes at your own actions destroys the potential for reaching the real goal, which was, and remains, individual rights.  

The same pattern repeated itself in the Perot Movement, the Tea Parties, and then in the Ron Paul Movement.  It is also present in the Patriot Movement and in the Environmental Movement and the Anti-War Movement. 

Now ask yourself a question - what has RMN done to change anything? Are we closer to experiencing the individual freedom and autonomy which is at the foundation of Natural Rights because RMN exists?  No.  For a moment think action, not reading articles originating from a myriad of other sources but the goal.  What is the goal / mission for RMN?  At the top of their home page you see, "Shining a light in a world filled with darkness." 

After you see what next?  Effective action does not take place spontaneously.  It takes planning to reach the goal.  It is emotionally satisfying to find people who want information but that is only the first step on a much longer path.  

I call it after school Program, with Tee-shirt because it keeps activists and donors entertained so they FEEL like something is going right but this is, in effect, a drug which pacifies instead of building from success to success.  Nearly every environmental group wants to claim credit for Obama's veto when it was the most weasel-worded veto ever written.  But because so many are desperate for any shred of good news Obama is lauded.  

And, again.  What has RMN accomplished except to make you 'feel' like someone is listening? 

RMN has no agents who write original content.  RMN has no where near 150 reposters.  It is not independent unless you mean 'independent' like a pirate ship.  There are a few places on the Web where a real dialog on anything can take place - RMN is not one of them.  At RMN all depends on the unchallengeable whim of Rayelan and Hobie.  

The popularity of RMN has plummeted  for these reasons. People are looking for something which really works.  They are hungry to a reality of freedom.  Notice how the legalization of marijuana and industrial hemp has moved more states to adopt the measure.  Giving people freedom breeds more freedom and opportunity.  

This is why the Libertarian Party loses half, or more than half, of its membership every year.  It is not succeeding.  Goals are firmly fixed in the future, the promised future for which all fervently hope never arrives.  

Planning requires work, discernment, and the use of capital not for consumption but to ensure resources are available.  

Solutions which work do so because they solve the existing problems in human culture which have been designed in to perpetuate top down organization.  

People don't know what the solutions will be but they will recognize it when it appears.  Expect a rush like people exiting a burning theater.  

Never settle for an Afterschool Program with Tee-shirt.  Freedom.  Never settle for less.

It's March and the Fundrazr Widget is Empty - Thank You for Your Help

    Server is due Need $400.00

    I also need $500.00 to pay the rent on the new house.

    I was $400 overdrawn on the account where my social security comes in. I had no idea that I had a number of automatic withdrawals on that account. I also had no idea that the bank had not put up all of the $36.00 overdraft fees.

    My SS check is what I normally pay the rent with. I also use this card to pay for the auto-renewal of my domains. I used to use Paypal to do that, but we lost because there was no money in Paypal. So I switched them to my private account. I usually monitor this account well enough to be on top of things like this. But with my best friend Buck having major problems with his back and not being able to walk, my mind was more on getting him well and not on anything else. Add to my distraction, the cost of the vet and medication.

    Buck walked yesterday evening for the first time since his problems. He still limps on the right side. His right leg is the one that was most affected. I've had a three legged cat and a three legged dog, so I know he will soon learn to not use the bad leg at all.

    With all the overdraft charges and automatic withdrawals I have $164.00 left out of $1,254.19.

    I need $600.00 more just to pay the rent and $400.00 for the server.

    I am planning on making a huge effort to move most of my furniture out of the house this week. I also have to appear in court. The freeloader is taking me to small claims court to pay for things she thinks I owe her. I have hours of research to do so that I can prove that her charges were NOT paid for by her... but by me. Thank God Paypal keeps track of all my expenses going back years.

    I was given a number of things to sell to make up this $600.00.

    Here is one of them. It's a man's citrine ring size 10. It's from the Suzanne Summers collection from the Home Shopping Channel. It's gold plate. I think. I will have to do some research on it to find out what it is. I took one of the rings to a pawn shop a number of months ago. We both thought it was solid gold. We were told it wasn't, it was gold plate. But I never followed up to find out what the manufacturer says it is. I will do this and let you know before it's sold.

    Of course women can wear it but you would have to get one of those ring sizers. What ever the metal is that it is made out of, it can't be resized by cutting it down. It has to have a re-sizer put in.

    I am opening up the auction in a few hours. There will be lots of things for sale.

    As I said, this move is costing me 10 times more than I ever imagined. I still have to rent a truck for the large furniture. Most of the rest has been moved in my Jeep or a friend pickup truck. We're going to try to move some of the bigger things today in his pickup, but if we can't, we have to find a truck.

    I am also going to have to find someone to plow the driveway. We got stuck yesterday after taking a load out. My vet's husband just happened to be there plowing our neighbors driveway. One thing I have found out about my new neighbors... they help out neighbors. I'm going to have to have an open house and invite them all. Maybe one of them has a plow to plow the field where my Victory Garden is going. I've already started the seeds. By the time the snow and freezing weather has stopped, I will have small plants ready to put out.


    1. And the con goes on, yeah, yeah! The Con Goes ON!

      Can Readers take her off as a dependent on their taxes? They really should, considering how much they pay to support her.

      Better plan on the truck, Rayelan. And the friend, by the way is Deadly Handyman. Rayelan never misses a chance to dramatize for the bucks. That is why she named Buck, Buck. She knew he would be good material and is he ever!

  2. My dining room in the new house used to be a porch, then it was a sun room... and finally it became the formal dining room. It has windows on three sides and gets strong afternoon sun. So that it going to become my seed starting room.

    But back to reality. I need $1150 to pay the server and the rent. And I need it by the 5th.

    I can get all of my furniture moved, but I still can't move out until the court date for the eviction which is sometime this month. I have a futon bed to sleep on. and I will put my computer on a TV tray.

    My landlord formally evicted me and the freeloader. I guess that means I don't have to pay the rent any longer. I was planning on paying him as long as she was here, but with the eviction notice, my lawyer tells me I no longer have to pay him. I know I won't get my $700.00 deposit back,. but I will still leave the house in rentable condition... FAR better that what it was when I rented it.

    If you can help me with the rent on my new house and the server fees, I will never be able to thank you enough. Please check out the auction page in a few hours to see the things I am selling to raise enough money to pay for the move and the cleanup of this house.

    At the moment, my life is going from one crisis to another, and I haven't even told you about the bad tires from too many nails and screws going into them... which meant I had to buy two new ones, and it seems that I am going to have to buy two more to make the Jeep stable in this weather. I don't really know if it's the tires or the brakes, but if I apply the brakes, sometimes I skid. Which is quite frightening when I am in 4 lane traffic. I applied the brakes at a red light and slid sideways all across a 4 lane road and came to rest in the driveway of a muffler shop. No damage. Thank God that none of the drivers, who had just gotten the green light, crashed into me. No damage was done to the car. I just backed it up and went on.


  3. I know that this will not last. The freeloader will be out of my life soon and legally she is entitled to nothing and a judge will see through her lies. I am praying that she gets some kind of punishment for bringing a case to court that is a total lie. People are punished for perjury. Are they punished for bringing a case to court that is a complete lie? I just don't know.

    If you can help right now, I truly need it. I'm not asking for more than usual. I am just asking that it be given earlier than usual.

    Thank you for all the help you elite group of donors have given me throughout the years that I have been asking for help. RMN is going to be 19 year old this June. I was able to pay all expenses during the first years. My husband was alive and I was teaching. After he died and I had to quit teaching to care for my mother, I only had to start asking for help with RMN. Until I got his social security and VA benefits, I was living off his very tiny life insurance. I used it to make the $3,000 a month payment on my house in California. After my mother died, I moved to Ohio and let the house be sold on a short sale. Prices had gone down so much I couldn't sell it for what I still had owing on it. I essentially walked away from a beautifully remodeled home. Believe, me... I still miss it. It wasn't much but I loved it. If you want to see the photos on zillow, you can see them from this page.

    I think you will see why I miss it. But I sure don't miss the $3,000 mortgage. Needless to say, I have not been able to afford a house in Ohio that is as nice on the inside as the house in California was.

    Thank you for all the help you have given. Hopefully after the move there will be no more emergencies. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

    And to the writers who wrote telling my to charge a subscription, I just can't do that. I have always believed that the general population needs to be able to read RMN. We have information that is valuable to everyone and I have always made sure that everyone could read RMN without having to subscribe.

    I would probably have the money to do everything I needed to do to RMN and my own life, but I would lose the reason I started RMN which was to educate the world. I have paid a very large price for going this way.

    Note: the photo shows a ring that is certainly not a man's ring...

  4. That is not a man's ring and it is not citrine

    1. Yes, and I included the link in my comment, which btw I had to add her post in 3 parts. Where is the rest of her post?


  5. See the link, it is peridot in a flower shaped design. Details don't matter to Rayelan either, evidently.

    1. You're supposed to buy because she touched it personally.

    2. Imagine, Raye has no clue, doesn't check the fees and interest rates, she's just lucky to have some 3500 per month to fill the holes. 3500 x 12 = 42,000.

      I got the impression Raye can't deal with money and doesn't have a clue how to calculate bankster interest rates. Like most people nowadays she's hobbling (hobieing LOL) on credit cards, will say, instead of being on the plus without having to pay credit fees aka interest rates (apart from annual fix amount for the credit card itself) she appears to be always in the negative, unbalanced. Assumed, for example, she has 4 credit cards each of them could be OVERDRAWN with 5000 bucks maximum, this would mean she has a total debt of up to 20,000 dollars by the end of the month. If she can't see the problem or if she feels no need to pay back step by step until she is equal then she has to pay the highest interest rates (besides so called micro credits, the NWO scam to small businesses in the so-called third world). If she's in debt with a limit of 20,000 per month on credit cards and if she gets monthly 3500 then she's still in debt with 16,500 every month, the whole year thru (that's what banksters like the most). Why do I elaborate on this? Because the interest rates for overdrawing, that is for taking advantage of the 'generous' financial bridging the bank allows without special credit contract flanked by insurance fees or other securities, well these interest rates are, as far as I know, between 12 to 16 per cent, some companies charge up to 30 per cent. If you take an electronic calculator it will tell you, let's take 15 percent interest as an example, that you have to pay 1500 dollars in the first year if you are always in the negative with 10,000 dollars. But what do we see after 2, 3, 4 or 5 years? Interest calculation is done EXPONENTIALLY! Most people don't know what this is.
      After 2 years it costs 3225 dollars for not having balanced your bank card, after 3 years it's 5209, after 4 years it's 7440 and after 5 years it's 10,114 you have to pay to the bank in form of interest rates because you did not try to reduce the gap on your credit cards to zero. Using credit cards is the biggest rip-off for bank costumers.

      Might be interesting to know how much of the money (the gullible 'RMN Conned Tributors' paying for the Reposting Room) goes in fact to the banks ONLY because Raye is too sleazy with bills and doesn't know how resp. want to calculate the total costs of living on credit cards.

      By the way, last month of February, if I didn't miss something, miraculous Shadow Soul at least 3 times paid 500 Fund Razr dollars to keep RMN running. Stands Shadow Soul for Stupid Servant or is it a paraphrase for Secret Service?


      Please correct me if I'm wrong or forgot something.

  6. Rayelan is a bald faced LIAR. Her home was purchased for $210,000 in 2001. The only way she had a $3000 per month payment is if she took out a second or refinanced the whole thing for $500,000 or so and kept the cash. The interest on the original loan would have been $1050 or less, principal $200 or less Taxes $169 and insurance probably about $75 per month.

    Unless she did a cash out refi, or second there is no way she was upside down.
