1. About 2020 Presidential Debates: Debates Factors

Thank you for reading this info, for your information this page contains over 3,500 words…so it’s not a simple tweet OR message. More info about debates has been prepared and is linked by me here.

Debates Factors

The rules & more with debates & writing are done to assist people to have the ability to share as well as to get the time others do to share in these situations & with these events. I have read info about debates, plus has spent A LITTLE time debating, there were issues with the debates that were partially moderator faults AND partially candidate faults. This could be because all the candidates fell into the ‘it’s allowed, why don’t I’ failure.

Debates are generally prepared to bring out various opinions on important issues & matters. This isn’t a way to discuss things courteously, because it allows the various issues to be brought forth that may be hiding in the background of other aspects with issues & events. In addition it’s done to find out different aspects and opinions about issues. While I was in college there were debates on issues that had YES & NO variables, but the Presidential debates and the VP debate didn’t seem as cut and dried.

Results of the 1st Trump & Biden Debate of 2020

The results of the first debate between Trump & Biden were based on the debate styles as well as how the candidates acted in front of the audience. This is where I wish there was a debate style that was easier to follow, I got super upset and turned the channel to a non-debate share.

There are contentions about who won the debate, but I’m also wondering if Trump was suffering fever and possibly other ‘cold/ virus’ symptoms. When I am high in temperature, having a sore throat, having aching lungs, and also with high sugar there is less of a calm attitude and my actions aren’t as easy as normal because of  body suffering stress and issues.

My ONE Debate During College

While in college the debate plans were put forward months before the debates began. The issues were topics of interest with life in society. The rules were added when the debate assignments were handed out, we had weeks to prepare and to practice these with the team works.

The debate styles were expected to be kept, as part of the grade for the class, for the presidential & VP debates the people are trying to get info as well as learn more about their candidates. The debate results will be determined with the election results as long as individuals that vote remotely also make sure their votes were taken accurately, AND if the boxes aren’t stuffed with false voting.

There are different types of rules and patterns with different styles of debates. I only had one debate in college and it was one topic that she chose to support that she debated on with her team. There are various rules that were part of the team debate that weren’t part of the presidential OR vice presidential debates because those were multiple topic debates with single debaters. The classical debate, as shared by H.W. Wilson’s 1957 book, is a team debate this means the rules with Presidential and VP debates aren’t normalized.

Below are some links to debates types & rules variations, but Ten Simple Rules for Debating, by Nullus Maximus Posted on April 21, 2016 has given me a way to show how the Presidential & VP debating was performed badly. Any of the info under the heading below that’s in [square brackets] has been added by me, the links are all to the post with the title shared above.

Practical Debate Guidelines

[Debates are expressions of opinion and facts that are based on evidence as well as emotion. BUT the candidates that are parts of the debate should work to remember that they are sharing for others to learn, to find out, to know about, not for their opinions to be loved, but for their opinions to be shared with facts & perspectives that the 3rd parties can relate to & understand. These actions help others to look beyond their emotions to the aspects of issues & perspectives that can influence their participation towards the OR with the aspects under discussion.]

Ten Simple Rules for Debating, by Nullus Maximus Posted on April 21, 2016 with my comments added [in square brackets] about the 2020 debates actions and her opinions of those debate procedures:

A significant amount of my recent work has been written in response to arguments made by other libertarian thinkers. As such, the time is ripe for a guide to how this is best done. This article will take the reader through the process of an exchange of ideas from start to finish, and explain my ten simple rules for debating. Those who follow these rules are guaranteed to become more successful debaters, as well as less stressed and overworked.

  1. Pick your battles. While a person of little renown may have enough time to engage with whomever one pleases at whatever length one desires, people who have less time to spend engaging in debates must choose which opponents to engage and which to ignore, as well as how long to engage each opponent. It is best to have a consistent rubric for this, which will be discussed further in rules 2 and 9.

[For every moderator question multiple topic areas are brought up, notes can be taken, and answers to those topics can be shifted, BUT the audience is the focus of this sharing and the reason info is shared.]

2. Engage only those worthy of being engaged. Some people are capable of maintaining a rational discourse, while other people cannot seem to communicate without resorting to personal attacks, profanity, threats, and other such uncivil behavior.

[Taking issue with the personal insults is stupid, for the debating unless the attack is a focus of the issues, it’s better to bring the issues to the fore & keep those as focus for the answers. The more time Trump says “and you Mr. Biden OR Biden says, “and you President Trump” are seconds being wasted in contending things that may not be worthy of commenting on.]

Some people have interesting and novel insights, while other people insist upon bringing up points which have been refuted a thousand times.

[Previously refuted issues and more can be prepared for, with info links, like the Presidential website OR Biden’s site with facts that can be mentioned as check the facts info, with the facts summarized if they are pertinent for the topics. Care is needed to not make the debates boring though.]

Some people are experts in the fields of which they speak, while other people do not stick to their lasts. Some people make the effort to properly support an argument, while other people Gish gallop. A person’s behavior in this regard is a strong indicator of whether that person is worthy of one’s attention.

[The debate facts and comments should be based on what is pertinent with the issues and the results of those issues. For instance when it comes to climate control, which Harris & Pence discussed, there is the issue of the California Wildfires partially built because of the lack of forest management. In addition there are issues raised with how Biden plans to raise taxes & cut Trump tax cuts supported by Harris, Senator of CA. A State that’s the most in debt for the whole nation.]

Note that other debaters will judge you by a similar standard, so be the kind of person that someone else would be willing to debate.

[This is Trump’s last time going for President, Biden is also likely to suffer such severe Alzheimer’s that he won’t be debating as a presidential candidate again. But the candidates are ALL planning to work as representatives for the U.S. in the coming 4 years, so who are they going to be for us the people of the nation? So this isn’t an issue of the other future debaters, this is an issue about how the American people will percieve their candidates with the upcoming elections.]

3. Do your research. If you know a topic in great detail, you will be more able to counter any argument your opponent may make.

An uninformed debater is an incompetent debater.

An unprepared debater is a sloppy debater.

Also, make sure that the sources you study are reliable.

[Accurately quoted information, like “210,000 Corona Deaths” with the Corona death reports being faked with flu, pneumonia, bronchitis, & other deaths being added to the Corona death reports as shared by Senator Harris on 10/7/20 are ‘presently determined’ as facts, may be contention issues that aren’t a value to contend with a debate.]

If the opponent is competent, a misinformed debater will be an embarrassed debater.

[Argumentative debaters often have little fact to back up their shares, they can win if they bring up issues that cause arguments that actually don’t discuss issues that they are ignorant of OR have no info about, but smart debaters who have no facts are also likely to prepare to be contentious enough to cause arguments and side track the opponent debaters.]

4. Do not [speak] to convince the opponent; [SPEAK] TO CONVINCE A THIRD PARTY. In many cases, a person worthy of being engaged will be firmly entrenched in a position, and it may even be against the nature of the format for your opponent to come over to your side. Focus instead on convincing the audience, whether they be people watching a live debate or reading a correspondence. This methodology is stated explicitly in some debate formats, but it is sound strategy regardless.

[At times debates can utilize visuals also, but this is dependent on the debate rules and more. With any debate that gets read like Presidential Debate transcripts may be, there’s a need to remember that many will read some of the info, so what info is shared that’s worth reading? If there were visuals for the presidential debates OR other debates there is also a need to make sure the visuals aren’t time wasters NOR are they hard to understand, AND they should also be verifiable for the audiences.

For my one college debate, in 2013, about the put into law ACA, U.S. healthcare law, which I was against, I used the photo image of the new healthcare law mass from Senator McConnell’s office & Steve Hayward, of Obamacare regs, which is now removed from this link & then the 11,000 info with the line by Rhapsodie based on an approximate mass versus the  real size of the U.S. Constitution.

The team used some images, but like good shares we controlled those, AND we also took the time to prepare specified shares so the focus was on what we talked about not the visuals which were only backup supporting what we were talking about.

Also, UNLIKE the presidential debates my debate was done with a team against another team supporting the opposite of the issue.

This meant that we had a lot of time for a single topic, we also had this as part of our class, which meant how we followed the debate rules impacted the grade results with our debating, so there wasn’t the over speak allowed unless we wanted to reduce our grades.]

5. Base your arguments upon logic (logos), not emotion (pathos) or authority (ethos). A debate is properly won by using reason and evidence to demonstrate that one’s position is superior to that of one’s opponent.

Detouring into appeals to emotion can help one connect with the audience or provoke an opponent into a misstep, BUT this does NOT advance one’s case in a rigorous manner [unless it’s driving into the point of the topic being discussed OR the issues working to be shared].

Appealing to the authority of oneself or someone else can dissuade a weak opponent or convince a less intelligent audience, but attempting this against a strong opponent in front of a knowledgeable audience is a recipe for disaster.

[For example with my college debate, with the team against the national healthcare, I could have used information of my own life, BUT as a team member my focus was on an aspect of the topic NOT all the aspects of the topic. With the topic I worked to share the aspect of this issue that were likely more relatable by others. The legal aspects which was part of my debate is a lot smaller than the multiple issues the Presidential Debates are contending.]

6. Relentlessly attack logical fallacies and weak arguments. It is important to [figure] out every shortcoming that you can find in your opponent’s case. Doing so will make you more skilled in identifying logical fallacies & weak arguments, [pointing these out]… means that opponents will be less able to get away with sloppy reasoning in future debates. [This will also support your arguments more.]

Do not worry about being pedantic; your job is to find all weaknesses in your opponent’s case & illuminate them to make your case appear stronger by comparison. [But you need to take care that the contentions aren’t boring the audience. The topic focus & issues that are contended can be multitudinous, that’s why note taking is so important. That’s also why taking the time to find the focuses, practice the issues debating with various types of personal opponents who aren’t on stage contenders, plus also possibly also summarizing additional info that’s not focus, can assist in leading the sharing.

Instead of just saying,  “You are wrong about…” OR wasting time in contentious words, taking the time to make sure to share “the facts about…” then sharing those, can reduce time waste as well as make more points supporting your sharing.]

7. Focus on the task at hand. A debate can easily go off track, especially if the subject matter is wide, deep, or both. Avoid making arguments that neither support your case nor attack your opponent’s case. Only go into the weeds if your opponent takes you there [and staying there is a necessity]; the person who begins the foray into many different minutiae is usually running out of solid logic and evidence.

[The task of the debate is harder to focus on if an individual is so involved in it OR so emotional about it, but it’s also a reason they should be more prepared to support their sharing well for others who aren’t as involved OR impacted with the issues.

If a person is mowing their lawn and trimming their hedge that’s the focus, if they go to the field because there’s a pretty flower OR a dead tree to take care of, the lawn work isn’t getting done and the field work is off topic at this time. The pretty flower OR the dead tree can be ‘works’ planned OR done later…BUT they will take time from the present task. If George takes Mary to the field to discuss the tree, they are both not on the lawn…It may be good if Mary can say to George, “That’s not the focus now, here’s what’s being discussed…”, BUT at times the issue is so important it should be discussed. Like if the dead tree threatened the yard walk.]

8. Destroy arguments, not people. Be respectful of your [audience, so] at least be as respectful of your opponent as he or she is of you[, or be as respectful of them as you would the audience]. Resorting to personal attacks (or escalating them if they are already in use) is a refuge of a person with weak arguments, and it will make people less willing to consider your case on its merits. Remember, your job is to defeat your opponent’s arguments, not his or her character.

[A debater that falls to the attacking actions of their opponent actually fails in their debating. An issue with the candidate debates is that the candidates are suffering personal attacks because of personal stands and personal issues. These Presidential debates should be about the Presidential position BUT attacks on Trump through the last years are continuing with the debates.]

9. Know when to quit.

There comes a point in every debate at which further discussion has diminishing returns or even becomes completely pointless. It is important to learn to identify that point and stop there.

Sometimes this will be clear; an opponent may even announce that a particular round will be his or her closing argument. If this happens, respond with a closing argument of your own and be finished; do not repeatedly pummel the opponent after he or she has left the debate.

This may also be the case in a timed or response-limited debate, in which case one should abide by the rules of the format.

[This should be considered more with the future Presidential debates, because many people are only getting media otherwise, so the facts that are shared about the issues for Americans are super pertinent to share & discuss.]

In other cases, it will be a matter of personal judgment to decide to walk away from a debate.

[A really difficult issue with the Presidential debates is the bias of the moderators, which means they are driving towards points and issues that they hold and want answers to. This is difficult because:

        1. They have their own political opinions [they would have to be dead not to have an opinion].
        2. There are multiple sides to every question & how it’s presented;

These topics have been so complicated the issues can’t be shown as headers for viewers to know what the queries were, this also likely means the candidates aren’t given a clear enough query to debate.

The topics have so much preceding info, that they influence the question and what it is. While some info is useful, the opinions expressed by the moderators take the info out of debate and into discussion.

Point 10 follows below, after the Debate Query Examples.

Debate Query Examples

For BAD examples are non-debate queries NOT debate queries which have sides:

What are your opinions on how the opposition has handled Corona Virus’ issues?

What has your party done against Corona Virus?

What do you say about how the protests are being handled in Chicago?

What are the issues with the facts about Corona Virus as are being reported?]

Instead debate queries which have sides, should have ways that the sides can each be distinguished, these were some of the 2013 debate issues that were discussed in my Business Ethics class at Alfred State College under Professor Damrath:

Does the Obama Health Care System benefit the Americans?

Should Recreational Drugs be Legalized

Should illegal aliens be granted amnesty

Is Employer Monitoring Email Justified

Plus others

The debates with unclear queries, issues that are only parts of the debates that have been avoided by the moderators. The topics should educate and inform the audiences, while the actions of the debaters can also educate and inform the audiences those can also cause audience members to act like I did.

I was so upset with the early part of the first presidential debate she shifted the channel. Because of making notes with the VP debate and because of wanting to learn about Harris, I continued through the debate. At least taking the time to type out notes kept me from getting too upset about the lack of info that was really shared.]

Finally the LAST of the Ten Simple Rules for Debating

by Nullus Maximus Posted on April 21, 2016 with Rhapsodie’s comments added about the 2020 debates actions

10. Handle both defeat and victory appropriately. No one likes a sore loser or a bad winner.

If you lose a debate, reflect on how and why you lost. Then, take the necessary steps to avoid losing in the same manner in a future debate. This may involve more study of the debate topic, [especially if it’s one that will arise again,] reviewing logical fallacies, or even changing one’s position on an issue.

If you win, do not gloat or boast. Accept victory graciously, then check your discourse for arguments that could have been stronger or presented more effectively.]

My Conclusion

Each presidential & VP debate is a chance to show the American people who their candidates are AND how they respond to conflicting opinions & plans. I’m concerned about this election because I fear democrats will stuff the polls with false votes. So, with the VP debate,

I’m glad Pence didn’t answer the hand over question, if President Trump steps down because there are stuffed votes it would mean liars will be in office and we will all be dropped into the shit. If Trump steps down because there are factual votes, then our people have made their choice for Biden. If Biden/Harris contend the votes for Trump/Pence, then I’ll be happy the election processes were done mostly correctly.

I’m glad to learn that Harris is a Senator from California, it gives me more research ability & info about her.

The copied info article has ended before here as shared above. After beginning the info with my words above in [square] quotes until the end of quoting another author now are just my additions. Thank you for reading this info, I’m sorry that the original post was messed up the FREE service is in no way as good as the paid service I previously utilized.

#17- Rhapsodie’s Visual PAIN Diary- April 2017

More here continuing from #16- Visual PAIN Diary- Winter into Spring 2017- Worse & Better At the present time, my LEFT Forearm, LEFT Calf, RIGHT Calf, RIGHT Forearm, LEFT Rotator Cuff, RIGHT Shoulder, 2nd to smallest toe on my Left foot, are my only real PAIN ISSUES that shift and vary with bone strain in movements. 

Presently

I generally get upmost days without any pain, but my movements during the day can and sometimes do cause PAIN.  A wrong step or a wrong lift can give me lightning pain followed by swelling and an ache that diminishes without more stress if I do not repeat that motion within the next week.

Sleeping is made way more difficult, because my left calf feels like it splits when I rest on my right side for 15 minutes or any more.  The exercises for my lower left ankle/calf assigned with physical therapy have increased and advanced the fever of my right calf. It only aches like a bruise presently.

Walking with my left calf wrapped causes pain like shoving micro spears into my bones near the last place a spike of pain happened if I’m on uneven ground and barefoot.  Walking with shoes and bracing causes me to ache whenever I take a step wrong at the store, like from pushing a shopping cart.  My right calf ONLY hurts when rubbed by hand to remove the swelling that centers over the fracture, that is as yet untreated, and when the fever in the calf gets bad my body temperature rises also.

ANTIBIOTICS CONTINUE TO REMAIN THE ONLY PAIN TREATMENT that removes pain.  But doctors’ have continued to ignore this sign of infections in the body. Prescribed treatments only fiddlefarden by brain to disguise from it the reality of pain.

  • Steroid– I was allergic so only 2 doses out of 7 were taken, a week of no pain, but I really injured areas that weren’t felt as being in pain.  Over 3 months of working to recover to the point I was previous to taking a single dose.
  • Acetaminophen/Cod 3o mg & Turmeric Cur-cumin– 24 hours of sleep with 36 hours of fuzzed brain, fluffing away the pain in disguising the problems from nerve central.
  • Aspirin/Ibuprofen– 5 to 12 hours of sleep
  • NSAID Cream– Anti-Inflammatory, I’ve only used one dose so far.

The fever in my right calf has been regrowing, today April 15th my temperature was over a degree above normal. The area of swelling on my right calf is not associated with ‘bone injury,’ but surgery was mentioned to me this last week.  My left arm though is the problem we’ve discussed through this set of blog posts, with the Visual PAIN Diary- From September 2013 into April 2017,

this is the last post for that section of this PAIN Care blog. Because I believe the plate for my LEFT arm has been moving around.  And thus the movement of the plate means that the areas of pressure from grip have shifted when pressing in areas also.

My sleep is again being problematic.  Because of so much lack of care, lack of physically moving properly regularly I’m almost incapable of walking presently.  The present medical system is set up to make sure anywhere there is a problem on your body you have to go in for a separate visit.

The Left shoulder injury could probably have been avoided if there had been care for my lower arm, but there hasn’t been, and I’m still having problems with my left lower arm & the recovery exercises for the shoulder exacerbate the problems with swelling of my Left Forearm.

But beyond them is how the patient will continue to suffer into the future and the cost settlements for injuries that are as yet uncared for as well as uncalculated into the lack of care … The lack of care results have led to a weak left arm, added to taking my ability to do the enjoyable tasks I still love as shared in the beginning of the document.

NEEDING LEFT ARM BRACING FOR ALL NORMAL TASKS,

many of which are avoided because of the work stress spiking pains:

  • Holding a bowl of soup, a small notebook, anything at all really with my lower left arm results in spiking and shifting pain with a single move.
    •  It’s really hard to eat a bowl of cereal.
  • Taking out trash, on the kitchen 15 gallon can has not been done, by me in over 2 years, my previous work at McDonalds involved lifting larger trash bags regularly.
  • Sorting through my storage of season clothes exchange took over 2 weeks, pain hindered me as did my arm not being powerful enough to brace a suit on a hanger single handedly with my left hand.
    • I have not washed a sink full of dishes since the week of the Steroid NO PAIN;
  • SWOLLEN NUMB FINGERS, specifically the 2 middle ones of my left hand, started feeling pinched about the summer of 2015 after the Steroid week & this reoccured in September & October of 2016.
  • SWOLLEN HAND, if my Left Arm is not angled up to sleep, I awake with it totally numb.
More ARM Work PROBLEMS,
  • Watering my plants is uncomfortable with my 1 quart watering container. 2 hands work best.
  • Adding water to the humidifier is done with the smallest cooking pot in the house, the 2 to 3.5 cup one. That’s between 16 and 28 ounces, a gallon of milk has to be lifted with 2 hands.
  • Lifting my drink mug with my left hand aches.
  • I do not comb my hair or brush my teeth with my left hand anymore either.
  • Washing Dishes, 1 piece at a time,
  • After doing anything normally easy for over 1 hour,
    • except for using the typing keyboard, it’s okay with resting my arm on the brace pad on my tucked down bear.
  • I haven’t sewn, sketched, crafted, read a book that weighs more than a Harlequin in over 6 months because my left arm can’t support the weight or the use angle stresses presently.

Just earlier this week a metal L door handle touched the upper edge of the YELLOW ORANGE bruise pain on the picture, the pressure felt like having a hand slap onto a bloody purple bruise beneath the skin. That area has never caused me any pain in the past; I would rate that at somewhere near ONE but less than that.  It’s the persistent re-ache that is most annoying.

Because months have passed since my last entry I’m adding details from the present situation and the pain shifting.  A situation which the doctors have listed as chronic pain, they’re stupid about that, but then they only read what others share with them before making a diagnosis. The February 2018 post demonstrates how the so called ‘chronic pain’ isn’t, it’s in fact circumstantial driven by life AND lack of proper treatment.

#16- Visual PAIN Diary- Winter into Spring 2017- Worse & Better

The pain splitting AND swelling that resulted from the shoulder bracing demonstrated to me that also the injuries of my left calf were splintering as I feel towards my knee and towards my ankle.  With use my left arm is splintering towards my wrist.  This is not normal but maybe people with dense bones are more likely to have this happen because of the greater bone resistance to splitting breaks which separate bone parts completely.

Winter & Spring 2017 Swelling & Splitting Pain Tied Together

At present my Lower LEFT Arm suffers swelling and more, pictures from February to April of 2017 are demonstrative visuals. As you can see with the pictures, the swelling green section is over the lower forearm bone, it has not reached the wrist bones, but it is very close.

Osteoclasts were not allowed to work the separated bone into the freshened injury after the Father’s Day Fall of 2014.  After pushing a part of the bone down behind the plate as it was in my arm then did not realign on the injury properly, thus it did not heal onto the base bone properly.

This is only part of Rhapsodie’s issues, but having bones improperly cared for can weaken the overall body of any person.

  • How do multiple repeated spreading fractures weaken a person?
  • How does the lack of correct bone care hurt and add problems beyond pain?

There are definite answers to these questions, but in consideration of my left arm, more and more physical weakness hinders my physical activity and the muscle mass decrease has allowed my injured bone areas to sprawl with greater touchable ease and the lack of use has caused more body problems as well as fear that Osteoarthritis & Rheumatoid Arthritis will be suffered more than it ever should have because of NO DOCTORAL CARE & self patient education.

A person should work to retain body balances, if they do not work towards this through their life they could suffer more and more as we see repeatedly.  Originally the PAIN problems I had were just rated by me as accidents in which I would heal from with time.  But the years of growing issues, evidenced on these pages demonstrates how initial pain problems diagnosed incorrectly can expand and become worse problems for both patients and their serving medical people.  Especially when medical people don’t take the time to investigate more than ‘tell us how you would rate the pain?’  Followed by let’s prescribe a ‘drug.’

To me that’s not work to investigate or learn anything, if you reported to the local police that you saw a car off the road in an odd area with skid tracks through the snow an investigative vehicle would be sent to the location. The problem would be taken care of before the police left the area abandoned with no care for the people.

If the work to pursue diagnostics was done with a little more accurate understanding of the real pain being felt with the medical requests then there could be better care with hopefully less cost as well as time wasted for both the patient searching for care and the doctors who are working to provide care.

  • Why is it if a patient talks about pain, there is no care given?

NO wonder there are so many people suffering ‘prescription drug problems.’  For me, pain is a sign of problems, taking drugs to minimize pain weaken my body and add to problems I could get.

Presently

I generally get upmost days without any pain, but my movements during the day can and sometimes do cause Pain.  A wrong step or a wrong lift can give me lightning pain followed by swelling and an ache that diminishes without more stress.  Sleeping is made way more difficult, because my left calf feels like it splits when I rest on my right side for 15 minutes or any more

WHOOPS DISEASE-3. Males

Whoops disease symptoms for males and females are different, An Arrow-b here’s one link to find out the details I’ve lived with. Animals can get this from humans also. My cat Mystin has displayed some of the human male symptoms.  Human’s can die because our society is majorily ignorant about the existence of this disease.  And because our health system has less doctors than it needs to work properly with full government health care.  I’ve been sick for the last 10 years, first from May or was it July 2008, but so are the males in my life.mixed 065

But their symptoms are somewhat different than the female symptoms.

MALE CAUSE & SYMPTOMS:

  1. Inhaling someone else’s sneeze juice OR drinking the fuzzy pead on water in the TROPICS or in another container that’s not purified OR cleaned correctly.
  2. Feeling ‘not right’ within a couple of hours or days. Generally noticed within days or weeks ‘something is not right’.
  3. SLIGHT congestion in the lungs, generally begins at the start progressing into colds within the first 1 to 6 months after contracting the disease, but this graduates in time to sneezing BUT less than the females.
  4. SNEEZES- from the 1st year to a continuous month then more on and off.
    • SNEEZES that start and grow and grow calm down and repeatedly for some years passing on more disease for others even the animals in your life.
      • The sneezes get harder and louder the longer they are had. AND
      • they hurt also.
    • Evening & night sneezes increase and hurt more as time goes on, the first one of the night is usually the most painful, but the damage to the lungs can mean less sneezes BUT it may not be that way for everyone.
    • Then there is A MONTH OF FLU like symptoms, including:
      • Congestion;
      • Diarrhea;
      • Phlegmy cough;
      • Exhaustion;
      • Higher temperatures
  5. Itchy skin that both males and females get from dry skin is very common. When the skin feels itchy DO NOT SCRATCH IT WITH YOUR NAILS or ANY OTHER SHARP OBJECT. Instead find a roughly textured cloth or use your fingers to rub away the itch.  This also works with bug bites, because it releases the area inflammation that generally adds to itchiness, but it doesn’t raise up more blood that will increase the inflammation in the healing processes.
    • There is an additional itch to worry about also with this disease.
      • Initially, about year 2 to 4, the bug feet on the skin itchies, with NO bugs were light and I rubbed those areas, but in 3 areas I scratched- the end of my nose and on my upper arms, until I rethought and stopped.
      • About the 7th or 8th year this has returned with a mass of rash on the body and in the places that did the scratching with the slightly itchy skin. These were in the exact same spots, but my life wasn’t tremendously worsened, because I avoided ripping my skin and digging for the itchies earlier.
        • I still feel little bug feet crawling on my body, but there’s nothing there so I rub the area &/OR leave it and they stop.
        • Presently, starting in 2017 into 2018, the men in my life are suffering what they think are fleas, ripping open their itchies because of not knowing that their earlier itching’s caused this exacerbated itchy feeling.
  6. Sores on the left thigh that seem nasty for 7 to 14 days, doctors MISDIAGNOSE THIS also at about 3 to 4 years.
  7. Age differences in disease for men, I may not have all the facts for all the ages, so please comment on details I’m missing:
    • This is for the men between 30 and ….
      • Gut Rash on the body, similar to Shingles but NOT for 30 to 60 days in a 5 to 7 year time period.
    • For men between 14 and 30?
      • A hunch back that comes about for some months, and then disappears leaving a normal body shape that’s still sick.
    • For men over 50
      • The feet of the men begin hardening, doctors call that arthritis, but it gets so bad that constant movement, squinching & rubbing can really help reduce the hardening.
        • There are notes in treatment, because after the disease is treated the bones, tendons, and muscles of the feet which haven’t been moving can really cause issues working normally again. So massages and more as well as muscle and stretch exercises can assist the feet in regaining natural movement over time, hopefully done progressively to avoid damage to the bones, tendons, and more. They also sell massaging devices, and other feet exercising equipment, a teeter totter board can help also.
  8. Higher sugars, that range in the range closer to real diabetes, but they vary with normal sugars, so it’s not Diabetes-
  1. Also there are mood changes.
    • One month of severe deathly depression,
    • At least 4 to 6 weeks of one nice week one mean week.
    • And other depression mood swings that last for about 2 to 4 years.
  2. Additionally there are the days and weeks of memory loss,
    • “I didn’t say that.”
      • When they said it so nicely and meaningfully earlier, you may want to take vocal recordings because this has happened at least 3 times and it may be different with your men.
  3. Males also lose their hearing for volume control, from their mouths, so
    • They talk LOUDLY instead of speak for a 3 to 12 month time period, generally biweekly Saturdays are their loudest.
    • They do not think they are being loud but their voices expand and fill the whole space, so if you’re having waxy ears and listening, the sound is amplified more and hurts.
    • Additionally they want things turned up louder, because it’s harder for them to hear.
      • This may be because of the mass of wax in the ears, mentioned below.
  4. Heavy wax build up in the ears causes a sort of ‘deafness’ that comes in the 4 to 10 year.
    • The wax buildup starts as heavy liquid coming from the ears that feels very watery when a person is sleeping.
      • Initially normally wax colors get very dark and
      • While previously the EARS WAXES WERE WATERY.
    • Now they are really yellow and heavier. Unless they are brown or black from bloody discharge also. So
      • Using the mix of rubbing alcohol and aloe juice heats and allows the waxy build up to run out.
        1. I mix up the aloe juice and rubbing alcohol in small container,
        2. Then put a towel on my pillow for each ear,
        3. Then using an eye-dropper fill the ear that’s up, and let it stay in the ear for 3 to 5 minutes, THEN
        4. I tip my head down and do the same with the other ear,
      • This may be repeated if I still feel the need for the release.
  5. Males also have water weight gain, but it’s mostly all belly & chest gain not real body weight gain.
    • Appetite shifts increase, so that people retain weight and even gain it with fluids, but they are not eating properly towards the ends of the disease.
    • It’s sad that the less a person eats the more ‘weight’ they gain in this disease. SO the Scales are always lying.
      1. AND men as well as women that are trying to lose weight, need to take care with this disease infecting them.
      2. They should be making sure they are getting the correct nutrition to stay alive, because this disease decreases the appetite for food while enhancing the fluid needs of the body.
  6. And there is hair and skin loss, that grows as time progresses and
    • The more showers a person takes the more hair and skin they lose.
  7. There are also the Planters Warts that come, but aren’t really planter’s warts because they do not infect others. BUT they do disappear with treatment of the real ‘wart’ disease.
  8. There are also sleep situations that are not normal, that seem to happen in the 6th & 7th year of symptoms.  The can’t sleep episodes with a pattern of
    • 8 hours 1 night
    • 5 hours 1 night,
    • 3 hours 1 night,
    • 5 hours 1 night,
    • 8 hours 1 night
    • After these patterns end they get weeks of sleeplessness that grows worse and worse, especially if they already have sleep apnea because this makes it worse.
  9. Also there are the muscle cramping’s, of
    • The left leg, year 2 to 4
    • The left foot, year 5 to 6 and
    • The upper left shoulder, year 7 to 8.
  10. Then there are the groin rashes.
    • Starting first with raised dots that are in the upper leg V’s.
    • Spreading to a rash through all the upper groin hair.
      • A treatment that seems to work well is Bag Balm which can be purchased in many pharmacies & pet supply stores.
        • It’s a mix of an antiseptic, lanolin, and petroleum jelly, Wikipedia mentions how the ingredients of the past were likely to have been varied because the present ingredients are as listed above.
  11. There are also blood pressure problems, so the doctors are treating the symptoms resulting from the Whoops Disease problems and their assumptions about a patient’s weight Body Mass type.
  12. About year 10, the men also get a ringworm looking patch on the front of their right legs, this includes red dots that stick out, are dry, and stick away from their legs AND it comes again on their rear right shoulder being super, super itchy.  Using Bag Balm OR the Petro-Carbo Salve can assist them in fighting this drying itchy bumpy rash, for about 24 hours.
  13. The I don’t care what you say, I’m not listening to you head gesture
    • This gesture demonstrates how the man is thinking. It shows that he is consciously dismissing you and what you say. When he’s too busy to listen OR is just not hearing you he doesn’t display this gesture.
      • It’s a head & neck jerk of the chin and an arrogant shoulder pose, it can hurt and it’s likely to be a part of recovery with women who do it 1 to 3 times dramatically only.
      • Men tend to do this for 2 to 4 weeks.

And I’ve not remembered everything, because I’ve only seen the events of the men in my life. But it’s somewhat odd that the symptoms run the same parallel by sex and lung size in humans even if they are genetically from different bloodlines for millennia of time.

WHOOPS DISEASE-2. Females

WHOOPS DISEASE, what is it?  Well it’s what I’ve named what is as yet a disease listed as unknown by the majority of medical society.  Nobody is looking for the symptoms and I got sick from being sneezed on.

Do you know how easy a sneeze crosses the air?

Ive affected my kitty? By sneezing on him and making his life horrid. And he shows the male signs, that’s for the following post because Whoops disease symptoms for males and females are different, An Arrow-b here’s a couple of links to find out the details I’ve lived with.

Me again 2015

ME- 2015

I’ve been sick for the last 10 years, first from May or was it July 2008 and of course I’m aging too, we all are, but nothing is so abnormal as to seem wrong for anyone but me.

FEMALE CAUSE & SYMPTOMS:

  1. Inhaling someone else’s sneeze juice OR drinking the fuzzy pead on water in the TROPICS.
  2. Feeling not right within a couple of hours. Generally noticed within days or weeks.
  3. Congestion in the lungs, which generally begins at the start progressing into colds within the first 3 to 6 months that continue can, and for me Rhapsodie McClintick did turn into bronchitis or pneumonia symptoms within the first 1 TO 2 years and it continues… so it’s viewed as an allergy by doctors after the bronchial and pneumatic treatments failthen later they progress to treating you with asthma inhalers which only increase lung space for the parasites to gain fluid from blood out of,
    • the lung coughs come out crystal clear and dry to white flaky crud.
    • The only cold treatment that works is
      • GINGER for the INFLAMMATION
        • Cider vinegar & honey help it taste good, and the Cider vinegar and honey is GREAT for the ACID REFLUX.
      • CHAMOMILE TEA– DAILY for the SINUS CONGESTION
        • This does lead to Asthma diagnosis’ by doctors that don’t do full scale proper tests with proper equipment. Within the first 2 to 3 years.
        • BECAUSE IT IS NOT ASTHMA! THE DRUGS DO NOT WORK for more than making more lung space for the microscopic organisms that have invaded your lungs.
      • LICORICE ROOT– FOR lung DE-CONGESTION
        • The dose for uses is a lot less than packages recommend, but that’s healthier for users. I only use 10 drops of the Swanson’s Liquid Licorice Root extract when the packaging says 48 to 56 as a dose.
    • SNEEZES that start and grow and grow calm down and repeatedly for some years passing on more disease for others even the animals in your life.
      • The early sneezes result in crystallizing looks on the fluids that are expelled and dry on darker materials also, like with coughs in the earlier stages.
  4. Acid Re-flux begins, if you don’t already have it, about 2 to 3 years into the disease and it remains throughout. It will eat away your vocal system also. The acid re-flux is because your lungs absorb moisture while you sleep as well as while you’re awake. During sleep the ‘acid re-flux’ happens because your lungs are breathing in moisture from the stomach area, thus causing acid re-flux, so the treatment with a daily dose before bed of:
    • 2 tsp. CIDER VINEGAR &
    • 5 tsp. of real HONEY,
    • 1cup hot water, and
    • Aloe juice to cool the drink AND soothe the throat
      • These combined are a great ‘cheap’ and healthier help against acid re-flux.
      • My sore throats, resulting from untreated acid re-flux, because I didn’t recognize the symptoms of stinky mouth, sore throat, and other things.
      • Additionally the AND mouth dryness is not assisted by water, but by milk, so more liquid is drunk that’s not calorie free.
      • BADLY
        • The over the counter medications, are only for use for a limited time. AND
        • The ‘medicine’ treatment above enhances the potassium absorption in your system, SO
      • it’s better for you if you’re in danger of kidney disease OR want a continual treatment to avoid the ‘acid-re-flux drugs’ when you can use natural treatment right before when you brush your teeth.
        • This is done to keep the acid of the cider vinegar, less with the unpasteurized from eating at your teeth, because the brushing and rinsing of your mouth with water should minimize the effects of the acid, and doing it right before bed is the best for sleep time acid-re-flux problems.
  5. Bunions Begin around the same time after the acid re-flux starts.
    • My family doesn’t have bunions, and I do now, this may be true for everyone, but it really helps to avoid having surgery to remove the bunions when after the disease is treated properly they disappear.
    • b. bunions on both feet
  6. Higher sugars above 120 but below 130 have been found from Whoops disease:
    • Just recently the doctors have rearranged their diagnosis for Type 1 diabetes, but I still believe that anything, consistently, over 130 is unhealthy,
    • anything above 120 is slightly uncomfortable, it gets more so the higher the sugar is.
  7. Itchy skin that both males and females get from dry skin is very common. When the skin feels itchy DO NOT SCRATCH IT WITH YOUR NAILS or ANY OTHER SHARP OBJECT. Instead find a roughly textured cloth or use your fingers to rub away the itch.  This also works with bug bites, because it releases the area inflammation that generally adds to itchiness, but it doesn’t raise up more blood that will increase the inflammation in the healing processes.
    • There is an additional itch to worry about also with this disease.
      • Initially, about year 2 to 4, the bug feet on the skin itchies, with NO bugs were light and I rubbed those areas, but in 3 areas I scratched- the end of my nose and on my upper arms, until I rethought and stopped.
      • About the 7th or 8th year this has returned with a mass of rash on the body and in the places that did the scratching with the slightly itchy skin. These were in the exact same spots, but my life wasn’t tremendously worsened, because I avoided ripping my skin and digging for the itchies earlier.
        • I still feel little bug feet crawling on my body, but there’s nothing there so I rub the area &/OR leave it and they stop.
  8. The 2nd year of the Disease has 1 outrageously loud and angry yelling episode, this only happens once.
    • But the sneezing does not begin until after the singular yelling episode.
      • The sneezing gets harder as time progresses the deeper and more painful the more time the sneezes continue for.
    • The frequency of the sneezing increases, so that with some of us, it’s like we’re in a smoky room with no ventilation.
      • Sneeze sets that repeat frequently AND
      • are infectious to anyone breathing in any of our sneeze smear.
  9. My hands, fingernails & toe nails have altered
    • from how smooth they used to be, to being wrinkled rougher on top in a finger length type of wrinkle that runs down the nail from the cuticle to the tip of the finger nails.
    • My hands have aged weirdly they look older than my aunt’s who is 11 years older than I am.
    • Additionally there has been cuticle growth on my finger and toe nails that is larger and tougher than normal, sense since youth I’ve shoved my cuticles back I’ve continued to do so. Recently the cuticle stains remain on my fingers, …
    • P1700371- 3 fingers
    • .Recently, in 2018, year 10 for me there has been staining of the cuticle remains. I used a nail brush to scrub it clean tonight.
    • AND my pinky toes are losing the top layer of skin, it turns flaky white and I can scrape it off with my finger nails, I try to avoid it a lot. AND use of foot cream that’s a mix of a hydrating cream, glycerin, and aloe seems to help keep things from getting too tough on my legs.
    • Hangnails that rip down have come and gone, with treatment the superglue works really well.
    • The ripping & cracking fingernails,
      • The ripped nail edges are being treated with a nail file, because one is carried with me all of the time, my left hand nails are rip cracking the opposite of my right hand on the exact same fingers.
      • BUT my nails are acting super dry like my hair is, so having them break at the tips seems quite normal for how dry I’ve been.
    • b. ripping finger nails
    • Flat topped thumb nails and the one on my left hand has seemed to start cracking on my right hand the small ditch on my flat topped thumbnail seems to be getting worse here are some pictures from my thumbs today.
    • b. flat topped thumbnails w-possible cracks
    • Hangnails also result– So use of super glue to seal those areas is best, generally that washes off in 6 to 12 hours, but the healed area may need re-treatment OR it may not.
  10. Dry Skin this has impacted many aspects of my body, that I feel more than others really see.
    • Hands wrinkled & dry– shared above.
    • Skin sloughing off my body with baths and showers.
      • Getting dandruff when I’ve never had it in my life.
        • Reduce this with super moisturizing shampoo & conditioner AND making sure to keep drinking; drinking; drinking.
        • It’s the worst right after the shower after my hair dries, without using a hair dryer, my head feels like I have a lot scraping to do to let my skin breathe and there’s a lot of flaking.
      • Baths & showers leave teaspoon measures of white skin in the catch cage before the shower drain.
        • I’ve always lost hair, but now the skin mixed with the hair makes the hair paste in the drain.
      • Vagina full of loose skin that feels & appears like a paste, AND it is super itchy because it’s moist and stopping air flow to the skin.
        • I use a douche, which I’ve modified from the original by adding a hole at the tip of the inserter. My mix, which works requires dual uses one right after the other to reduce leave behinds.
          • Adding a 1/ 2 with a water & Aloe Vera juice mixed at a ratio of 2/3 water to 1/3 Aloe juice. Doing the math for the individual amounts with the full mixture as a base means:
            • Water- 0.5 (as 1/ 2) ÷ (0.666) or 2/3rds= 0.333
            • Aloe Vera juice- 0.5 (as 1/ 2) ÷ (0.333) or 1/3rd= 0.1.667
          • With the cleansing agent of 1/2 of cider vinegar.
  11. The 3rd year began occasions where the body sweats like you’re swimming in water, for hours on end,
      • for one 24 hour period to a week I was so sweaty a dry cotton wash cloth sitting on my bare leg absorbed more than a squeezable amount of water.
      • There were multiple times since 2013 when I awoke with the bed soaked from my sweat, the mattress soaked so much that it was still damp the next day. AND
      • it happened just a couple of days ago, ‘death sweats’ I named them, because my lungs are so bad now I can barely breathe in the tub OR in trying to sleep.
  12. Thirst dramatically increases in the 6th year and the thirst continues to increase so that about a gallon or more is drank each day, but the water adds to the body weight without draining away properly, this article continues plus [PLEASE READ MY CHART WITH DETAILS, AT WHOOPS DISEASE 2b.

#11- About Government & Regulation vs. LOVE & Freedom

The “U.S. Constitution has been shared in some slight degree with the recent posts here, but so have contentions about the government and how it’s regulations diverge from the “Constitution”.  Because of this please remember that the theme of that document defines the purpose of the regulations in that document:

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote [get behind, boost, not make] the general welfare, and secure [fortify, preserve, assure, (Webster’s New World Thesaurus, 1990)]] the blessings of liberty [the rights supposedly natural to man- freedom; independence; power of choice, (Webster’s New World Thesaurus, 1990)] to ourselves and our posterity [our children’s future, our descendant’s future, (Webster’s New World Thesaurus, 1990)], do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

A document prepared by men of faith, that to a degree professed a belief in God’s hand in this government and who worked, in Rhapsodie’s opinion towards LOVE.  There are multiple comments shared with the statements of previous posts, but it’s always important to remember and connect the theme of the “U. S. Constitution to the articles & sections of the “U.S. Constitution” with interpretations of it.

Take for example how the Commerce Clause interpretation, from the Constitutional definition, has affected freedom and LOVE while increasing the power of the dollar and the government.  The clause is constitutionalized under stare decisis because the Supreme Court made this judgement in interpretation, in 1832 the federal government is now empowered to control all commerce in the United States, unless they determine that there is an unsubstantial effect to interstate commerce with a business.

Rhapsodie has read multiple legal cases that cause her to see this as bad, not good for the free people in the United States. “In 1942, for example, the Supreme Court held that wheat production by an individual farmer intended wholly for consumption on his own farm was subject to federal regulation.” (Clarkson, 2012) How would an individual’s consumption of wheat raised on his own land, in his own state for eating by his own family cause ANY problem with interstate trade? Oh, maybe it would mean he wouldn’t buy wheat from another state, but he could buy wheat from his own state anyway, so this interpretation has led to federal regulation, not freedom for the people.

While the commerce clause interpretation could have legitimate value and purpose, the 175, size 6 font, double column, text book sized, pages of the U.C.C. (Uniform Commercial Code) is just a section of the law used to control people by business in the United States and this controlling effects the Native American peoples also. It’s not based on freedom and lLOVE it’s based on control and maximization of money in controlling. The blessings of liberty are actually minimized with these laws; the general welfare of the public is diminished by capturing souls in the cost of life with national healthcare and its minimization of the people’s control of their own lives.

This short dissertation shows how the actions that don’t demonstrate LOVE can fail, and since “LOVE never fails” there’s a need to make sure all regulations and control systems are done with a base of LOVE instead of Selfish Pride. The theme for the whole “United States Constitution shows that these shared aspects of control are unconstitutional and ungodly, at least in accord with Rhapsodie’s interpretations. But her sharing here is only based on a limited examination of the history of the United States and the definitions of this country. There is more for you to see, so read even if you decide to disagree.

#10- About Government & Regulation vs. LOVE & Freedom

On her opinion that neither the Executive Branch, the president of the U.S., or the Legislative branch would have any rights in altering the laws of a people viewed as individual nations. They also shouldn’t have any right to diminish freedom of all because of the fear of a few. There may have been alterations to the regulations or laws in accord with the Native American’s, but they aren’t Constitutional amendments.  There are also more present discrepancies, with regards to present law and regulations in the United States versus Constitutional definitions. Let’s start with defining property, isn’t it possession that is not another’s?

Land, money, furniture any property can be undermined by diminished wealth, if the value of the money I make at work is minimized by the government, because of National Health Care, then why should I work for any extra? If I pay for everyone else’s health care with the work I do, why should I work at all? If the freedom I was promised from the property and prosperity I gain is given to others why should I continue to care about life or other’s lives? Versus the Puritan work ethic, which endures in the North East of the United States, and in Rhapsodie’s opinion, which empowers a person who works to the value of the work done, the money gained growing freedom’s power with the knowledge of the value shared with the world versus the government regulations have taken the empowerment away from the people.

  • Article II, section 3 [The President, of the United States,] shall from time to time give to the Congress information of the state of the union, and recommend [give advice in regards] to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; . . .
  • Article II, section 9 The migration or importation of such persons as any of the States now existing shall think proper to admit, shall not be prohibited [there is no approval mentioned] by the Congress prior to the year one thousand eight hundred and eight [1808], but a tax or duty may be imposed on such importation, not exceeding ten dollars for each person. . . {No capitation, or other direct, tax shall be laid, unless in proportion to the census or enumeration herein before directed to be taken.}5
  • Article II, section 8 The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States [the nation, not the individualized people]; but all duties, imposts and excises shall be uniform [as in the SAME] throughout the United States; . . . To establish a uniform [the SAME] rule of naturalization . . .
  • Article II, section 6 The Senators and Representatives shall receive a . . . compensation for their services, to be ascertained by law, and paid out of the treasury of the United States.
  • Article I, section 8 The Congress shall have Power . . . To make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into execution the foregoing powers, [shared in section 8 ONLY] and all other powers vested by this Constitution in the government of the United States, or in any department or officer thereof.

Which to Rhapsodie means in accord with the theme of the whole constitution, “We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote [get behind, boost, not make] the general welfare, and secure [fortify, preserve, assure, (Webster’s New World Thesaurus, 1990)]] the blessings of liberty [the rights supposedly natural to man- freedom; independence; power of choice, (Webster’s New World Thesaurus, 1990)] to ourselves and our posterity [our children’s future, our descendant’s future, (Webster’s New World Thesaurus, 1990)], do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Not for the judicial, legislative, or executive governors of this country, but for the people of this land now and into the future.

  • Article I, section 8 To regulate commerce with foreign nations, and among the several states, and with the Indian tribes;” which was in 1824 interpreted, by the Supreme Court with a controlling and freedom diminishing definition. “The Court ruled that commerce within the states could also be regulated by national government as long as commerce substantially affected commerce involving more than one state.” (Clarkson, 2012)

#09- About Government & Regulation vs. LOVE & Freedom

For Rhapsodie the theme of the “U.S. Constitution” hasn’t been followed with regards to actions done with the people of this country.

This theme, should infiltrate every interpretation of Constitutional law designation.  “We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union [a union is a connection, not a separation], establish justice, insure domestic tranquility , provide for the common [accepted] defense, promote [get behind, boost, not make] the general welfare, and secure [fortify, preserve, assure, (Webster’s New World Thesaurus, 1990)]] the blessings of liberty [the rights supposedly natural to man- freedom; independence; power of choice, (Webster’s New World Thesaurus, 1990)] to ourselves and our posterity [our children’s future, our descendant’s future, (Webster’s New World Thesaurus, 1990)], do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

According to Rhapsodie this was shared, not for the judicial, legislative, or executive governors of this country, but for the people of this land now and into the futureThe Bureau of Indian Affairs continues to handle the difficult task of caring for people within this country that are of another nation, previous posts showed how there were failures in the past.

  • Because the Constitution vested the Legislative Branch with plenary power over Indian Affairs, states have no authority over tribal governments unless expressly authorized by Congress. While federally recognized tribes generally are not subordinate to states, they can have a government-to-government relationship with these other sovereigns, [to a very limited extent] as well. 
  •  They can also become citizens of their tribes or villages as enrolled tribal members.
  •  American Indians and Alaska Natives have the same rights as other citizens to hold public office. 
  • Over one-half of the total U.S. American Indian and Alaska Native population now live away from their tribal lands. 
  • However, most return home to
    • visit relatives;
    • attend family gatherings and celebrations;
    • participate in religious, cultural, or community activities;
    • work for their tribal governments;
    • operate businesses;
    • vote in tribal elections or run for tribal office;
    • retire; or
    • to be buried.

But the present government still adds regulations to the life of citizens that will probably cause problems for the future posterity of this country’s people.   When examining the Constitution you can see how freedom based on equality and LOVE was shared, in accord with the writer’s understanding of LOVE and the principles established in the law of the Iroquois & 5 Nations.

  • Article IV, section 4 provides that “[t]he United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic [internal against the country] violence.” Or against violence from the federal government against the State.
  •  Article IV, section 2 The citizens of each state shall be entitled to all privileges and immunities of citizens in the several states.
  •  Article III, section 2 The judicial power shall extend to all cases, in law and equity, arising under this Constitution, the laws of the United States, and treaties made, or which shall be made, under their authority; . . . In all cases affecting ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, and those in which a state shall be party, the Supreme Court shall have original jurisdiction.

See how reading this section in correspondence with the information about Native American peoples and Congress above effects Rhapsodie with sorrow.  But there is hope because we are a people that can still use the Constitutional freedom’s given us by our ancestors to have more freedom with more responsibility.

#08- About Government & Regulation vs. LOVE & Freedom

What European American’s value is land, what Native American’s valued was land but a free land understood and used by nations in regards with the needs of the tribe. Now that Native American’s are provided land of reservations, often the poorest and most unfriendly areas, there is limited reason to see value in what is held.

Original Native American’s did possess the land, but in accord with Forbes online article of December 13, 2011, Why Are Indian Reservations So Poor? A Look At The Bottom 1%:

Prosperity is built on property rights, and reservations often have neither [prosperity or property rights]. They’re a demonstration of what happens when property rights are weak or non-existent. . . It’s a look that’s common worldwide, wherever secure property rights are lacking—much of Africa and South America, inner city housing projects and rent-controlled apartment buildings in the U.S., Indian reservations.

Property of land is a key in feeling a connection to life and driving values for people.

Historically, most of today’s federally recognized tribes received federal recognition status through treaties, acts of Congress, presidential executive orders or other federal administrative actions, or federal court decisions.  The Bureau of Indian Affairs for the United States shares details about policies and procedures of the U.S. government in regards to Native Americans.

  • In 1978, the Interior Department issued regulations governing the Federal Acknowledgment Process (FAP) to handle requests for federal recognition from Indian groups whose character and history varied widely in a uniform manner.  These regulations – 25 C.F.R. Part 83 – were revised in 1994 and are still in effect.
  • Also in 1994, Congress enacted Public Law 103-454, the Federally Recognized Indian Tribe List Act (108 Stat. 4791, 4792), which formally established three ways in which an Indian group may become federally recognized:
    • By Act of Congress,
    • By the administrative procedures under 25 C.F.R. Part 83, or
    • By decision of a United States court.
  • However, a tribe whose relationship with the United States has been expressly terminated by Congress may not use the Federal Acknowledgment Process.  Only Congress can restore federal recognition to a “terminated” tribe.
    • The Federally Recognized Indian Tribe List Act also requires the Secretary of the Interior to publish annually a list of the federally recognized tribes in the Federal Register
  • According to the U.S. Bureau of the Census, the estimated population of American Indians and Alaska Natives, including those of more than one race, as of July 1, 2007, was 4.5 million, or 1.5 per cent of the total U.S. population.  In the BIA’s 2005 American Indian Population and Labor Force Report, the latest available, the total number of enrolled members of the (then) 561 federally recognized tribes was shown to be less than half the Census number, or 1,978,099.
  • American Indians and Alaska Natives are citizens of the United States and of the individual states, counties, cities, and towns where they reside. 
  • The relationship between federally recognized tribes and the United States is one between sovereigns, i.e., between a government and a government. This “government-to-government” principle, which is grounded in the United States Constitution, has helped to shape the long history of relations between the federal government and these tribal nations.

Ah, but Rhapsodie’s limited research is proving a different fact. The Native American tribes are being treated as states without power away from U.S. federal government control. And while the Civil War was started over States Rights, Rhapsodie is afraid to share these words, because of incorrect interpretations of constitutional privileges by the U.S. government. Oh, wait a moment the U.S. Constitution is being trashed anyway.

#07- About Government & Regulation vs. LOVE & Freedom

The “Constitution of the United States was written in regards to protect the people from the problems of the past and problems that the past shows could return again in the future. Problems like tyrants, minimal Upper Class controlling, taxing, and defining law and huge Lower Class living under control, without freedom, without choice were to a great degree taken away. “There will still be the poor among you,” were words shared with the nation of Israel, but LOVE as a guide and direction to remember the poor by leaving food for gathering was done. The food was to be gathered by the poor, it was to be worked for by the poor, this legal provision was made so that there was provision in this world not only for the people but also for the growth of LOVE.  According to BIA.gov:

Congress ended treaty-making with Indian tribes in 1871.  Since then, relations with Indian groups have been formalized and/or codified by Congressional acts, Executive Orders, and Executive Agreements.

  • [In Rhapsodie’s opinion, defining Native American Tribes as American states, not individual nations.]
  • In addition, American Indians and Alaska Natives can access education, health, welfare, and other social service programs available to all citizens, if they are eligible.
    • [So if the US government doesn’t recognize the tribe as Native American, the people aren’t eligible for the provisions in this section.]
  • Limitations on inherent tribal powers of self-government are few, but do include the same limitations applicable to states, e.g., neither tribes nor states have the power to make war, engage in foreign relations, or print and issue currency.

But none of this includes the original tribal freedom associated with lack of boundaries for the Native American peoples..

  • [The 1824 precedent case defining a word in the U.S. Constitution, can also control all commerce in Native American lands that happens between the people and the surrounding U.S. controlled lands, to such a degree that the States of the land decide how interactive business is done on the Native American lands. (Clarkson, 2012)]
  • [And if the federal government doesn’t recognize a tribe they may also not have an identity as American citizens, but they may, more research is necessary for this point.]

The fact that there is so much control, by the government of the U.S. that the Native American peoples have to go through the United States Government to be defined as a tribe or a people with inherit rights of the people is really unloving. Again according to the words at BIA.gov:

  • Article 1, Section 8 of the United States Constitution vests Congress, and by extension the Executive and Judicial branches of our government, with the authority to engage in relations with the tribes, thereby firmly placing tribes within the constitutional fabric of our nation.
  • That is, a tribe that has a government-to-government relationshipand a special trust relationship with the United States.
  •  These special trust and government-to-government relationships entail certain legally enforceable obligations and responsibilities on the part of the United States to persons who are enrolled members of such tribes. 
  • Eligibility requirements for federal services will differ from program to program.
  • Likewise, the eligibility criteria for enrollment (or membership) in a tribe will differ from tribe to tribe.
  • federally recognized tribe is an American Indian or Alaska Native tribal entity that is recognized as having a government-to-government relationship with the United States, with the responsibilities, powers, limitations, and obligations attached to that designation, and is eligible for funding and services from the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
  • Furthermore, federally recognized tribes are recognized as possessing certain inherent rights of self-government (i.e., tribal sovereignty) and are entitled to receive certain federal benefits, services, and protections because of their special relationship with the United States.  At present, there are 566 federally recognized American Indian and Alaska Native tribes and village.

More also needs to be understood, and further words should incite all United States Citizens to drive for the Constitution with LOVING interpretation.
