#1- About Bible Readers Reading Enjoyment Being Enhanced

I’ve read the Bible, most of my reading has been done with the New World Translation, of 1984 with footnotes and cross references. BUT I also have looked into the King James Version, NIV (New International Version), and others over time. For me the reading of the Bible has developed as I’ve grown over time, but just today I received my first copy of a Bible that was ordered chronologically.

Because of buying it on eBay I originally posted a review just based on what I found from looking through that book. BUT my original complaint wasn’t posted… I’m so glad because after reading through the facts I later learned some of the problems of that book were added into my commenting as praises which were inaccuracies. Now the correct comments are shared because of taking a little more time to assess the accuracy of that version of the Bible.

What Chronological Bible?

The 2013 Bible, is actually a great book… It’s the One Year Chronological Bible and it has many reading values.

It’s not too small OR too large.

General Book Style To Read

It is a really nice read, the paragraph & spacing style of the printed pages allow readers to associate the material with any other books that aren’t Bibles OR college material of the 2 column type. The material format and print size, between 10 & 12 font, mean that it’s easier to read than the smaller print Bibles.

The author’s have taken the time to work on this book as is seen with how the material is compiled and shared.

Ordered Timewise Chronologically by Events

It’s great that the Bible was reordered from the canonical style, ordered from Genesis to Revelation classically by books that have chapters and verses.  There is a reference to the canonical ways of the Bible at the end of this version. It includes references to this chronological style with page numbers listed near the canonical/ classical references that are shared with this Bible.

In addition with the chronological information it adds the timeframes for readers of when the events happen through the reading. As you can see in the slightly tilted image below:

Reading this Bible

This chronological Bible has the sections separated into 365 days of reading starting with January 1st, but NO ONE HAS to read the Bible that slowly OR at those times OR even in that order. But this writing by Tyndale has shared for us a way to read through most of the Bible with a lot more insight into the historical nature of the scriptures. It’s styled based on Biblical events as they happened, as I put onto the cover with my noting, but not with how OR when they written.

 

This should make for a great time-a-logical writing, but there is more readers can do for reading accuracy.

Time-A-Logical Reading

I appreciate that they compiled the material with aspects like the timeline of events with Judah and Israel that includes the writer’s lives over those times. The writing time references they used, the additional historical notes and details that are added as references, plus footnotes that allow readers to find more info about the scriptures as they read. The yearly timeline shared doesn’t need to be used at all for great reading through this book. BUT as you can see I need a readers way to get to sections of those timelines, so the addition of flags and tags was made for me on my addition.

Can be Used with Classical/ Canonical Bible’s Also

While it’s not ordered canonically it does have the scripture chapters, versus listed with the reading, so an individual can pull out the classical canonical format and compare OR even read those scriptures if they find the chronological style not as useful with times and works being done.

For instance if I was at a meeting and someone told me to open up Jeremiah 12:3 it would be easier to do that with a canonical Bible. I could still do that with this Bible by going to the Canonical Scripture Index at the end of the Bible to find what pages had that scripture. BUT it would be a lot faster in some situations just using the classic styling Bible’s for some uses, but I really really like this style for reading and understanding the scriptural story better.

Faults of This Bible

Faults with Reading this book are that the events are chronologically ordered by the events that happen not the time of the writing about the events. They tried to order the writer’s words by how they relate to when they were written, but there are reasons that I don’t agree with those orders. For book, story, and Bible readers there are ways to get more value out of the material as well as more understanding, at least from non-fictional materials.

That is a factor that readers’ can use to find MORE value from with the reading!

Enhanced Bible Reading Enjoyment for US ALL!!!

The Bible is a book covering a couple of thousands of years of history. For all of us with the multiple writers it means that the chronological telling can have many various forms that we can find and enjoy. I’m looking at buying versions that include archeological facts and details, different aspects of story sharing variables also. BUT it’s important for all scholarly readers to take the time to do more than just read a book, so that they can learn more than just how one telling of a story shares the words of the story.

Writers & Events Impact the Tales

For all books, like the Bible writers and events impact the details of what is told and how those details are shared.

For example the series of books, the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John about Jesus’ on earth were all recorded at different times and for different readers. There are different timelines of story that impact the connections with readers. So for my reading I’ll use a chronological telling at this time, with using understanding of the writings that may differ from others.

This, One Year, Bible has

  • MARK’s writing from about 55 to 65AD,
  • LUKE’s from 60AD,
  • MATTHEW’s from 60 to 65AD,
  • JOHN’s from 85 to 90AD…

The New World Translation timeline is different

  • MATTHEW’s writing completed in 41AD,
  • LUKE’s writing completed between 56 and 58AD,
  • MARK’s 60 to 65AD, and finally
  • JOHN’s ending at about 98AD.

This means reading understanding can differ based on opinions of when & why things were written.

I’m not going to historically tell you details of this info, but it’s useful to consider the various writing times as well as the different writer’s reasons for writing to the readers they were sharing with because of how this varies what they share, how they share it, it can also influence considerations of what was written when and how. In addition who the writer’s were & are influences the stories that they tell and how they tell them. Let me simplify this a bit with a modern example.

A- Simplified fictional modern example

If I were to witness a car accident, and Bill was we both are seeing things from our own views. If Melinda was in the accident and George also saw it from another perspective there are 4 views of the exact same event. All of us could have witnessed various aspects of the accident and that can mean that we tell the story of the accident with different details and views of what was seen.

  • If Melinda’s car had just come out of the shop being repaired.
  • If George saw a lug nut bouncing down the road., if
  • I had seen the tire hit hit the curb, while on the car, and
  • if Bill had thought he saw the driver driving weird

each of the perspectives are telling parts of the story. There’s more to the story based on what was happening when we were telling things and why we were telling things also.

So no story has a single way of being shared. For this means that the gospels also have alternate details and perspectives from both the writers and with the readers that can influence how the stories were shared and how the readers get those.

Additional Gospels in Perspectives

Let’s consider this from the version of story times I think is more accurate.

  • MATTHEW’s writing completed in 41AD,
  • LUKE’s writing completed between 56 and 58AD,
  • MARK’s 60 to 65AD, and finally
  • JOHN’s ending at about 98AD.

Matthew

MATTHEW as a Jew and a tax collector, was a person that kept accounts of things, which likely also means he took notes of stuff over time, and his accounts were some of the first in writing mainly because he was sharing with Jews the stories he had gathered with time. The Jews who came into contact with disciples of Jesus, those who were impacted by events with his death, those who witnessed his resurrection and many more likely had questions. Because he was writing within 10 years of Jesus’ death it’s assumed that a lot of his info could have been a compilation of his notes from events, but also this means those details could have been referenced by the other gospel writers.

Luke and Mark wrote their scriptural accounts about 15 to 20 years after Matthew.

Luke

It’s supposed that LUKE was writing material in a detailed manner that is often attributed to how as a physician he would be noting details of types related to physical aspects and results. Luke’s notice of physical aspects of people, the healing, and the details of those events can explain why he didn’t comment as much on the reactions of the crowds in many events. The aspects of this being shared by him 15 years after Matthew’s account also mean that the additional points and details are not only backing up Matthew’s account they are also reinforcing aspects of the story as well as adding details to what was shared.

Mark’s account came about 5 years later.

Mark

The account of MARK began to be shared in Rome. “According to ancient tradition, Mark’s gospel was first made public in Rome.” (Aid to Bible Understanding, p. 1114, 1971). Mark likely spoke primarily with early Christians, partially because of his age with events from Jesus’ life, and because of how he related with the Christian church/ congregational/ organizational developments. Mark could have been “the young young man who escaped, partially naked, when Jesus was captured.” (Aid to Bible Understanding, p. 1113; 1971). I assume from this that it’s likely he was a teenager, who got out of home, at night, went to the garden to spy on the events he caught ear of previously. Likely an uninvited guest of the events.

“Ancient tradition indicates that Peter provided the basic information for Mark’s Gospel..Although Mark appears to have written primarily for the Romans, this record does contain [info] from the Hebrew scriptures.” (Aid to Bible Understanding, p. 1113; 1114, 1971). This is also likely to tell us that Mark’s words were written to people who grew up hearing of Jesus, but those who hadn’t witnessed much in accord with the events of Jesus being alive.

That shouldn’t be a surprise if this Mark’s “Hebrew name was John”. (Aid to Bible Understanding, p. 1111, 1971). This also means that Mark was a Jew by birth. The people were distinct religiously in many ways…but the story was the same in many respects. Differences were from how people lived and what they believed as readers would have had an impact on how things were written in many ways.

John

The writings of John are totally distinct because what he wrote was after living times with the early Christians being killed and hurt from beliefs about the Christ and times they were living in. In addition John had witnessed the events of visions and more that caused him to write Revelation which means there is a lot of detail in his account of Jesus’ life that could have meant very little when being witnessed that may have had a lot of impact later after seeing, hearing, and witnessing things that had happened from beyond those events.

For instance John had likely spent a little time reading the events of Saul (Paul) who saw Jesus/Michael. In addition the details of John often had bits and parts that were missed by those living around Jesus and other gospel writers. These writings while from different people, written in different ways, aren’t written to be any more than what we read, but they are so much more.

B- Modern Example Detailed Some More

What if with our modern example more could be found from getting perspectives of the viewers of those events?

What if that car accident had more to show us?

“All of us could have witnessed various aspects of the accident and that can mean that we tell the story of the accident with different details and views of what was seen.” This also means we could tell of different aspects that pertain to the exact same event.

  • If Melinda’s car had just come out of the shop being repaired.

What if the shop had a new person, a kid, who had forgotten to bolt the tires onto the rims correctly? What if the shop owner hadn’t been in the shop, so the kid made the mistake of saying the car was ready to go without having made sure all the work details were finished accurately? So Melinda was driving down the road with a car that wasn’t working right?

  • If George saw a lug nut bouncing down the road.

George could have been seeing part of the incident before anything else that was major was witnessed by any other viewers. BUT Melinda was likely to have been trying to handle things as they were happening.

  • I had seen the tire hit hit the curb, while on the car.

Melinda had been working to get the car stopped safely, before the tire wobbled off the car. I didn’t know that, I could have assumed that she was drunk. The car is the proof of what has happened with this incident.

  • if Bill had thought he saw the driver driving weird.

Bill could have also thought that Melinda was driving drunkenly, but he could have seen more because he has more knowledge of cars and driving than I do.

CONCLUSION

“Each of the perspectives are telling parts of the story,” but there’s so much more that we have to be readers/ viewers using faith as well as knowledge to look beyond the surface of what is shared to find more in the events as they are shared.

This post is #1, I’m not sure if I’m going to add any more OR not, but I do have plans to get other Bible’s with other chronological ordering in addition to that I hope these Bible’s let me gain more insight into the events of the Bible that I will share…so for now enjoy your reading.

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-1. Animals

Do you love your animals?

Some of us love them & make them as sick as we are!

Whoops I just sneezed at you, did you get my disease, I sure hope not!

Whoops did you swallow my sneeze, uh oh, I don’t know it’s real name, so I hope you didn’t get Whoops Disease.

Whoops is a disease that is some sort of waterborne microscopic organism with so many normal symptoms that your ignorant doctors make misdiagnosis repeatedly for other diseases.

The symptoms are listed in the following pages, they effect humans and animals.  Do you love your animals?

I love mine, and made him as sick as me! But his vet has the treatment, that saline was added to, for the general treatment of parasites.  Because sneezing on him has made his health as horrid as mine, well maybe my 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 Mystin displays the male symptoms, and he’s still alive, maybe because he got one ‘weak parasite treatment correctly at the veterinary office, but he needs the concentrate multiplied by 10.

Mystin 2008

A clear sign for animals is the single long cut on both of the front canines, that begins AFTER SNEEZES, THE TEETH which WILL HEAL FINE if the long cuts are cleaned 3 to 6 times before they start healing, with the pet toothpaste & infant brush, AND allowed to fully heal with no touching, if the skin is broken by finger nail or toothbrush after they start healing, then the poor animal has a yucky canine. If the tooth is not brushed the teeth can starve the critter or they can heal with yuck in them.

THE SNEEZES which can KILL when the animal has them repetitiously and cannot sleep, THE SYMPTOMS LIVE A TIMELINE OF EVENTS OVER YEARS OF TIME. But there is also the food problems from the acid re-flux that swell the throat and make it hard to swallow anything not fluid. Being unable to eat and the sneezes are death dealing, I’ve helped my baby with soft kitty food AND chicken fatty water, because that’s what he prefers. He’ll drink tuna juice, but he does not tuna in olive oil. Beef  & lamb & turkey juice and other fish juices might be nice.

The itchy problems, from dry skin, are more advanced with the animals because the critters like cats and dogs with fur covered skin have hair that means only claws dig through to itch their skin.  Thus the scabs from the itching grow with the itchiness, and I hope my animal gets correct treatment before a painfully raw scratch causes and infection that leads to death through an attack or another disease. Additionally, there are weeks where he’s been blind. I think if he gets the proper parasitic treatment while he’s not blind he’ll be able to see fine for the rest of his life.

The amount of liquid intake increases the peeing need, and it also causes the body to suffer diarrhea, my poor little kitty keeps going potty about 3 to 5 times more than normal. He’s so sick right now with the diarrhea he smells stinky and he has been sleeping outside on the porch for running to the yard.

THE HUMAN SYMPTOMS ARE , in some ways, THE ANIMALS SYMPTOMS, but the animals can die from poor teeth possibly, acid re-flux, and from lack of sleep with sneezing because they have trouble sneezing laying down.  And there are side effects that alter the body compositionally and because of multiple thoughts on this disease I now am assuming that this is a technologically advancing disease.

My baby disappeared over a year ago I believe he died in the wilderness of home, I still cry missing him at times and so upset I made him sick when he could be treated at Lakewood Vets.

#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.

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.

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 BIA.gov:

  • 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.

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

People in power with the proper respect of responsibility are allowing freedom to live, which means other people will act on their own intentions. FREEDOM IS CHAOTIC, so what has happened to the Native American’s could happen again. FREEDOM IS UNORGANIZED, and with the short 70 or 80 years of life we all have presently, organization is key in keeping life understood. FREEDOM IS LOVING and Godly LOVE can be defined for following, from 1 Corinthians 13: 4- 8a, here:

LOVE is long-suffering and kind. LOVE is not jealous, it does not brag, does not get puffed up. Does not behave [vilely and evilly], does not [focus on] its own interests, does not become provoked. It does not keep account of the injury. It does not rejoice over unrighteousness, but it rejoices with truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. LOVE never fails!

Using the living aspects of love in contrast with the self-serving aspects of pride we can draw comparisons for ourselves and our actions.

Selfish Pride is impatient and brutal. Selfish Pride is not trusting, it does not apologize, does not get true humility. Does not behave honorably and worthily, does not watch out for others interests, does not stay concerned. It does not forget incidents of mistake or offense. It does not rejoice over true justice, true nobility, and true fairness, but it rejoices with deception and falsehood. It drags all things, suspects all things, doubts all things, weakens all things. Selfish Pride always fails!

The contrasts between selfish pride and LOVE are distinguishing, but as we all know every person created needs to grow to develop both physically and personably as does every nation of people. To condemn a person of the present for the actions of similar, not the same, people in the past doesn’t allow that person the freedom to become who they are going to be.

For the present people of the United States including all Native American peoples fighting to keep the “Constitution of the United States for value in the present world, and this begins with reading that document and fighting to keep those rights as defined with the theme and its variable factors. Beyond that is the need to demonstrate LOVE as chief, George W. Harkins, of the Choctaw tribe did in 1832 with his letter to the American people. His fear for his people, and the other Native American’s was demonstrated as was his concern and care for the world in which he lived. Even if people like Mr. Harkins suffered with the fear grown from Selfish Pride, is an American example, our people should all learn how to LOVE properly in accord with circumstances in life.
