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.


  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
        • Cider vinegar & honey help it taste good, and the Cider vinegar and honey is GREAT for the ACID REFLUX.
      • 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.
    • 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, and
    • 1cup hot water
      • 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
  10. 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.
  1. 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.
    • My sore throat, mentioned above is not assisted by water, but by milk, so more liquid is drunk that’s not calorie free.
    • Severe thirst so that the mouth needs liquid every 10 to 15 minutes has happened from beginning about the 7 to 8 year period, at least for Rhapsodie. Things may be varied with people with different size lungs, I have large lungs for my frame.
      • The thirst gets so great that the mouth and throat dries out and hurts without a drink every 10 to 15 minutes.
      • The drinking need has dramatically increased AS HAS THE peeing amount. As of January 2018
        • I’m up to drinking over 1.25- 2 gallons per day, this is a combination of-
          1. Water,
          2. Tea water,
          3. Milk,
          4. Sparkling water,
          5. Tea with water, AND
          6. Nutrition Plus to keep my calories at a good spot.
        • Going to the bathroom,
          1. Every 1 to 2 hours, during waking times AND
          2. 2 to 3 times during sleep.
          3. Approximately 1.20 gallons about 80% or more of what is drank.
        • There is also how comfortable the shower or bath feels, which means more time is spent with water because the body is super dehydrated unless more than a gallon is drunk per day.
  1. There is also water weight gain that is noticed in the legs and ankles, on the face, thighs, belly, breasts, upper arms, chin, and other areas. AND this is the same with men.
    • There were also blood pressure problems, so the doctors tried to add blood pressure medicine, when there is not a real problem ‘blood pressure problem’ because they aren’t treating the disease, that clogs the lungs and poisons the body, only the symptoms resulting from the disease.
      • But it’s not a problem now.
    • There are cholesterol problems because I’m eating so little, that I’ve tried to enhance the caloric intake with less food, meaning higher fat food. Lower fat high calorie food is super expensive and very costly for a no income person.
      • So I’m using Red Yeast Rice & Lysine, from the vitamin areas, when I remember to do so, which should be done as dose needs daily.
    • 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.
      • For the 4 to 10 year range the appetite diminishes and this continues to increase as time goes on.
        • BUT for my mother who’s mature, they has been an increase in appetite.
      • Taking supplementary nutrient drinks and drinking whole milk has assisted me in improving my calories from the 2013 amount of 1400 calories per day on average up to the 1603 calories a day on average in 2018.
        • With the diminished appetite the body weight has increased while, food calories are less than healthy. AND
        • Doctors treat you as if you’re fat, when you’re not really eating enough to be healthy.
          1. What was it, in the German concentration camps a 1,200 calorie per day diet ‘was okay’. AND the world saw images of people that were given 900 to 1,200 calories a day, after the Allies got to the camps, and to this day we judder in horror.
        • In fact I’ve charted my calories since 2013 and the numbers show:

calorie snip for wordpress Whoops disease b

        • I’m doing great eating 1600 on average each day per month for 4 months, up and down some, but that’s good because I feel less weak and wobbly. Additionally, my bones are less likely to break more than they were when I wasn’t eating enough to stay healthy, even with doing no physical labor.
        • I’ve been as low as 1200 per month on average for four months more than once, previous to making a good account of my eating, for almost a year I was eating less than 900 calories a day, while my doctors were believing the scale, as an accurate body mass index, instead of the truth in my records.
          • You can see in the 2015 image how it looks like I’m growing a double chin, that’s also a part of whoops disease.
Me again 2015
2015 Rhapsodie
b. Rhapsodie w-photo picture- P1680061
2018 Rhapsodie
  • Additionally you can see how in the 2018 image that I look fat. BUT
    • my right hand the one that’s used all of the time looks like bones with skin.
  • My feet have shrunk in shoe size, my hands were smaller, but
    • now they are the correct size for when I was at my prime weight.

10. Additionally there are the hemorrhoids that grow from bowel movement increases and variations that increase the more fluid you take in.

  • About my 5th year with the disease, 2013 I’d poop what looked like quarts of shit at a time.
  • About my 6th year with Whoops, I had one nasty it felt like a baseball of poop, hard round and dry like a mud ball that sat out for days.
    • Sorry, I had to use my fingers or die of the pain, and I used the scrub brush and soap as soon as the relief was gotten.
    • In 2016 I had another nasty spell with golf balls of poop that were dry little chunks clogging me up until pulled out.
      • The hemorrhoids grew from baseball season, 6th year, and now I use the Bag Balm [search engine web page] OR petroleum jelly almost every time I’m on the pot.
  • Recently softer diarrhea poops are more common because of all the milk I’m drinking without a lot of fiber, I think.

11. Also there are mood changes that are most dramatic in the 6th to 10th years, but made worse by the ignorance of so called ‘doctors’ and the money they want you to spend for visiting specialists with no results:

  • About the 6.5 month stage for me, there was
    • One month of severe I DON’T CARE attitude.
    • About 2 to 5 months later there are moods of severe calm than there are weeks of calm days followed by angry days.
  • Recently, the 10th year, I’ve suffered the I DON’T CARE attitude for months, with extreme mood swings and upsets.
    • Partially because of ignorant doctors and more…

12. 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.
  • Then they were white and heavier.
  • NOW they are golden yellow & very dry from how my temperature has been out of wack.
    • If people around you are LOUD and if you’re having waxy ears and listening, the sound is amplified more and hurts.
  • Most of my headaches recently have resulted from noise, and I know my ears get clogged. 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 and 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.

13. And there has been & are odd swellings and itchiness for the last 5 years progressively getting worse with time.

ME- Eye swelling 3- 2015
Oddly Swollen & Hollow Eye Space

                                One example is shared with the next picture at my eye above.

  • There have also been
    • odd throat swellings,
    • odd groin swellings,
    • an odd behind the ear lump,
    • under arm swellings and itchiness’s,
      • the under arm itchies have continued to the present day as have the nose itchies and I treat them the same with Bag Balm, that you can buy in a ‘farm care’ OR pet place.
        • Walmart used to sell that in the pet department where I used to work, that’s I how got acquainted with it. It’s some sort of antiseptic, with lanolin and petroleum jelly. AND the rashes ‘go away’ until another week OR day of treatment depending on the location of the itch. And
        • odd right & left hand swellings that I do not associate with other injuries.

14. Additional rash locations have come about, for me the oddest has been my belly button, BUT I’ve treated that the same way as the underarm rash itchies and the itchiness on the nose mentioned right above.

  • For me treating the underarm rash itchy with Bag Balm can assist them in fighting this drying itchy bumpy rash, initially for over a week, but then later in the disease once a day before bed or after my shower or bath before bed.

15. Over the last years I’ve suffered water blisters that feel like pencil stub bubbles on the end of my fingers.

  • It’s kind of odd because they came about 3 months apart, the one on my thumb I’ve lasted for almost exactly 3 weeks. So there wasn’t popping I use a sugar picker and poke a hole and bleed out the excess water in that blister, I’ve done that every other day for the last 7.
  • Also I’ve gotten white heads, pimple blisters, on my face and when they are popped they result with an oil layer over water that seeps out for as long as it’s allowed to. It’s 8 to 12 times more water than oil smear or pus. I can reduce them by squeezing any skin area, but the water expulsion is ABNORMAL.
    • Additionally boil like lumps have appeared on my face, groin, chest, and they do not reduce they sit their for months until they start to hurt and can be reduced.

16. Eye balls feel super dry, like they are un-lubricated,

  • In 2013 the optical doctors informed me that my eyes were dry, but
    • expensive eye solution is wasteful for helping my eyes when SALINE SOLUTION &/OR the protein heavy equate brand MULTI PURPOSE SOLUTION, which is also used for contacts are the great for hydrating & stopping my eyes from itching.
      • Presently I’m using a tablespoon of MULTI PURPOSE SOLUTION on my eyes weekly. Versus using the same amount of saline solution daily.

17. LUNGS- The whoops disease lives in the lungs, it causes all the other body problems because the lungs are an air and blood filtering system for the whole body. And the shit of the ‘microscopic organisms’ pollutes the body. Additionally the lack of clean air the body takes in adds poisoning to the blood. For me, my lungs:

  • Start burning, really low, in the 2nd year,
  • by the 4th year the lower lungs are a lot heavier and burn a lot, and breathing diminishes more,
  • in the 6th year the middle of the lungs feel a block, and
  • after that the upper lungs gain heaviness and in the 7th year they start burning,
  • by the 8th year the upper lungs progressively get more burning periods and more of the throat hurts too, also breathing is A LOT WORSE.
  • For the last 24 months, 2017 to 2019, my lungs are burning daily in the upper zones.
    • For the summer with no AC the lungs feel heavy, and the breathing is a lot harder.
      • AC does dehumidify the air, but it causes my throat to burn also, while the hot dry wood heat air also dries the air, my lungs don’t while my throat does when I’m not drinking milk.
    • For Winter
      • the wood stove dry air, it’s so dry that using a humidifier greatly helps, but I’m thinking that if it’s the microscopic waterborne organism’s then the dry air is keeping me alive as well as enhancing my thirst.

18. And there is hair and skin loss, much greater in amounts and frequency than normal, in general the more baths & showers a person takes the more hair & skin they lose.

  • SKIN LOSS, seems to come with being so dry.
    • Each shower I take causes me to lose at least 1 teaspoon, or more, of skin that’s what remains in the fine screened drain grate clogging it unusably.
      • The skin loss amounts continue to increase so that if I take a bath the tub has skin floating in a layer on the water when I’m done in the tub.
      • My face, hands, legs, and arms are peeling visibly daily, the same as the tub is my sink after washing my face in the morning or scrubbing my feet at night.
    • I’ve never had dandruff, I do all the time now, but my mom recommended the baby shampoo and it works to decrease dandruff itching at a smaller cost than dandruff shampoos.
      • BUT the dry skin on the scalp continues, and the remains are not dusting’s of dandruff, the skin flakes off in larger ‘between’ hair pieces. You can see the skin sections floating down through the air like snow.
  • HAIR LOSS, I still have my own hair, at least some of it AND I do not regularly dye or perm my hair, I don’t use a hair dryer OR hair curler, but
    • I’m losing about 4 times the amount of hair I ever used to.
      • 8 years ago my comb collected less hair per month than it now collects daily.
      • My hair has always collected in the drain, but now I can fill a collection screen cup with each of my shampooing rinses.
    • I’m not 50 and I’ve had bald spots on my head because of the dramatic amount of hair loss that isn’t continuing now, even though I’m eating healthier with the Equate Nutritional drinks from Walmart.
      • Other than the previous comments that were true, about a year ago my hair started growing in at about 3 times the normal rate.

19. There are also sleep situations that are not normal. Around the 5th year and continuing to the present my sleep has been odd.

  • Super tiredness that increased so that 10 to 14 hours a day were normal sleep happened this last year for months.
    • One day I slept straight through except one bathroom break for 24 hours.
  • Then there were months where every time I went to sleep I was awakened and
    • This was weird because it was a cycle of 3 days odd up to one day normal for over 1 month.
    • And during this time there were odd dreams.
  • I’m still having weird and odd sleep cycles, that are exacerbated when I do consume enough nutrition in the previous days.

20. Additionally taking the Ibuprofen is like taking a sleeping pill, I think, drugging me for over 24 hours with a foggy head and no ability to do more than stay awake.

  • Previously if I took A COMBINATION OF ACETAMINOPHEN’S &/OR IBUPROFEN they cause 1 to 3 hours of vibrating abnormal shakiness. And that has happened for over 5 months, but IT’S GOING AWAY NOW.
    • The shakiness has diminished tremendously with my nutritional value increases.
  • So if you’re suffering whoops disease, I’d suggest not taking any acetaminophen OR ibuprofen until after you’re ready for bed. If you were driving with it, ….

21. Over the last 8 months I’ve been having dizzy spells, starting on Saturdays, that are increasing in amount and effect.

  • My mother has been suffering these for a long time now, but
    • the disease has a normal lung female with 6 to 9 months, 3 days and 3 hours getting worse and worse as time progresses. So
  • for me with the larger lungs my dizziness may extend longer.
    • I’ve been having the Saturday dizziness from about last November starting at 9 weeks, then increasing to 6 weeks, then 3 weeks, and
    • now once a week and this last week has been going on since Friday.
    • So it may be my last week of dizziness or it may mean worse weeks are ahead.

22. I have all the ‘medically mentioned’ signs for, 

  • these tropical waterborne parasites/ organisms, yes I’ve lost the ‘medical PDF’ record and the disease name has changed frequently, but I have all the signs of Whoops disease so you may also.
  • And be prepared your doctors will try to treat you for asthma, blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, and anything else they can prescribe a drug for to get you out of their hair AND they will not be treating the problem that’s killing you.
  • For testing, a waterborne parasite a urine test is used, and the test needs to be done within 24 hours after the sample is collected. IF the place you go for tests ships in amounts to a hospital lab, it’s likely a bad place to use for this type of test. Because from peeing in the cup until the test needs to be less than 24 hours, or the results will be inaccurate.

Please remember these are notes for the disease with me, my mother who got it from me is suffering ahead of me now because her lungs are a lot smaller than mine. Originally her symptoms followed mine, now they are ahead of mine. BUT because of her age, past menopause, her symptoms are different in some ways and degrees. There are some similar male and female symptoms mentioned but the timelines and the depths of problems vary to a great degree by the size of the lungs and the sex of the person.

Because my cat suffers the male symptoms in my timeline, I’m wondering if there’s a chemical animal human disease correspondence.  Eventually that may be discussed more in the WHOOPS DISEASE-5. Nano Mites? post.  The following post is organized to discuss what male humans in my life are suffering, because my sneezes carried to them.

#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)

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.

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

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

  • 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.


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

Circumstances of the past always effect the present, but the mind and heart of each individual is not their parents or their grandparents. Mr. Means fighting for native American rights tried to share his life of meaning and value for his people and for the world in which he lived. He did more than speak out about his people, according to the multiple comments at Russell Means Freedom website. “His value for the Native American people and their own history was aptly demonstrated with a principle goal[with] the establishment of a “Total Immersion School”, [PDF Link for T.R.E.A.T.Y. Strategic Planning Power Point Download] . . . , where children are immersed in the language, culture, science, music and storytelling of their own people.

His death on October 22, 2012 limited his fight for his people, but Rhapsodie sees more need in following the established principles of LOVE based on freedom that’s already been shared with the “Constitution of the United States” without any alterations that aren’t original amendments but are, in her opinion, most probably “changed for light and transient [not needs, just passing by, not remaining] causes.” [Declaration of Independence, 1976]

The Health Care Law recently instituted can be viewed as good and bad by different people depending on their lives and their situations. But Rhapsodie as an American, diabetic since the age of five finds that the freedom lost with the money being taken to care for a nation of people is just as bad as the financial control of other nations on states of the United States during the time of the “Articles of Confederation.

Comparison of the actions of the U.S. government with the Native American people was originally organized because they were to be nation states within the United States, but the government continues to alter and change, research on Mr. Means website caused me to question the reason people would stay in areas like the Lakota reservations. More research adds value to the facts located at

  • From 1778 to 1871, the United States’ relations with individual American Indian nations indigenous to what is now the U.S. were defined and conducted largely through the treaty-making process.
    • These “contracts among nations” recognized and established unique sets of rights, benefits, and conditions for the treaty-making tribes who agreed to cede of millions of acres of their homelands to the United States and accept its protection. 
  • Like other treaty obligations of the United States, Indian treaties are considered to be “the supreme law of the land,” and they are the foundation upon which federal Indian law and the federal Indian trust relationship is based. [ . . . .T]here is no single federal or tribal criterion or standard that establishes a person’s identity as American Indian or Alaska Native.
  • The rights, protections, and services provided by the United States to individual American Indians and Alaska Natives flow not from a person’s identity as such in an ethnological sense, but because he or she is a member of a federally recognized.
