"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality,
tied in a single garment of destiny.
Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly."
-- Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King


   As America moves closer to the brink…

It’s increasingly more difficult to remain positive about the fate of the nation given the horrendous mismanagement of our country during the past 35-45 years…and increasingly more important for folks to become self reliant is every area of living.  The Congressional Budget Office released some more gloomy data about the growing gaps of tax collections, income disparity, and more.

As more baby-boomers retire outlays will increase while tax revenues decrease and the gap will exceed 30% of revenues by 2030…for Social Security payouts the end game could arrive sooner, perhaps by the mid-2020s.

Obama’s un-Affordable Care Act will likely on worsen things including employment, yet leaders in Washington still act like drunken teens behind the wheel of an out-of-control car and it is the citizens who are, as always, picking up the tab for their mismanagement.

Today’s issue include some items I pulled at random from my bag of useful stuff…


Dozen Roses - Low as $12.99!

Most places charge the highest prices of the year for roses around Valentine's Day. There are a few unconventional places to check to avoid this annual winter snowjob. Here are some unexpected places to check: Aldi ($12.99), Walmart ($15.88), Target ($17.99), Walgreens ($19.99), Whole Foods (yes, Whole Foods... $25 for TWO DOZEN roses) and your local supermarket. Don't expect to find long stems, however.


It's simple to detox your laundry. Swap traditional detergents, bleaches and softeners for natural options. Our guidelines will help you purchase green laundry products, our recipes will help you make your own cleaners at home.

Bleach: Use natural-mineral based bleach alternatives that are much kinder to the Earth and your family than harsh chlorine bleach.

Fabric Softener: Add ¼ cup of baking soda-which also works as a brightener-to the wash. When using liquid detergent, add the baking soda during the wash cycle; when using powder, add the baking soda during the rinse cycle.

Fragrance: If you want to add fragrance, do so during the drying cycle. Put a few drops of essential oil on a cotton cloth, and toss it into the dryer with wet clothes.

Treat Grease Stains: For best results, treat stains while they're fresh. Cover the oily spot with a mixture of Borax and warm water and let it sit - 20 minutes for a light, fresh stain, and two hours for a heavy, set stain-then rinse with cold water.

Athletes foot fix…use the mild antiseptic boric acid:  Mix 2 tsp. of boric acid with one cup of water and apply to rash areas twice daily.  Takes about two weeks.

The reality challenged masses require other freebies to grab them by the short hairs such as beer, babes and bongs or that other opiate, the Bread and Circuses sometimes confused as sports.
