Continued success noted..

With the recent news reports related to criminal justice topics, combined with much of the reform based activity coming from the Vatican.. We add to our success in the growth of positive awareness's, reform activities related to global/U.S. monetary, religious, environment, criminal justice targets. It took years of work to help bring forth the current changes coming out of the Vatican.

Current efforts are now being focused towards accelerating rate of needed change, as well as continued focus on the growth of awareness needed in bringing about "it takes a village-inclusiveness"  while ending current negatives related to "it takes a village-armed with torches and pitch forks- processes of needless and harmful exclusions"

Finally... Wide spread reports across nation of criminal court processes/conviction review efforts getting more fully under way.

While I rejoice at this increase in awareness and activity, I mourn the thousands upon thousands of lives needlessly/unjustly, negatively impacted or destroyed by these related McCarthy-istic era/processes of wrongful or "over-convicted/punished" criminal court processes, that were/are being allowed to go on due to fear based policy creation, dangerous cultural shifts away from an appreciation for concepts supportive of liberty and justice, and under funding of critical criminal court infrastructures, Infrastructure originally put in place to help protect all accused. -and thus the innocent as well.

(You go back 20 -30 yrs, and yes we had problems with perceived and real inconsistency, or flat out lack of accountability in criminal sentencing processes/law making. Our country began a needed shift--but the process became hi-jacked by those who used fear vs reason/research based reforms, plus the "war on drugs" was incorporated/grafted to the process--the sheeple went along as planned due to successful dumbing down and media conditioning/impact. - Then the recession of 07/08 hit in earnest.. A national/cultural disaster that will take decades to mitigate results.)

Another victory for the 100's, 1000's people and organizations similar to the Sunrise Foundation that are helping to bring about the above mentioned positive awareness shift.

CSM 

Our courts have been getting it wrong at least 4.1%  in capital cases..yes we have been sending innocent people to their deaths through out the modern era.. It's worse for non-capital cases.. 100,000 thousand factually innocent people in our prisons today?- perhaps more..?..millions who have made it back out into society and walk the streets today, as permanent second class citizens ..What kind of a godless, animalistic society could permit this to go on?? USA.. Largest prison population in the world..per capita, as well as just numerically. Land of the free--Bullshit, not even close....( free to be un -educated, free to stumble around and act upon opinions with out the support of facts, ect..)

Free ?... free to operate societally in far to many instances, with no greater sophistication of thought or process than those times in which people were burned for being witches or heretics..

We are a culture of the 15-30 second sound bite, we have allowed critical aspects of our society to become corrupted, in our desire to increase ease of control over important community operations, we have betrayed those hard won human abilities/appreciations for intellectual honesty, reason.. in so doing we are slowly rendering extinct-(currently endangered)- the concept/responsibility for facilitative dialog as an integral part of the process in our governmental operations.. (all aspects)--from the local town hall, or parent teacher conference, to the halls of Congress or United Nations. 

And the world of "Idiocracy " grows.. to be culminated by what will be refered to by our decendants as "the big swim".. this being, the period of our history where the global population drops to around 600 million..

U.S. Attorney General- Mr. Eric Holder

Dear Mr Holder. You served our nation, it's citizens with honor and integrity. You helped to restore aspects of trust/reason and integrity to processes that had been lacking in needed quantities of same for far too long..

Best wishes on your future endeavors...I hope with all my heart, that whom ever is chosen to take the position next, follows your lead and builds upon, in a positive fashion, your legacy.

Realistic Monetarism, Realistic Reality Based Monetarism- It's for real.

Realistic Monetarism-- I was asked "if it's "real"? Would it work? Yes, it's real..Yes, it works!!! Consider this..We are currently spending approx 2.8 billion dollars per day more than we take in, in tax revenues...We are currently sitting at $17.8 trillion dollars on our National Debt.. That's $17.8 trillion dollars we have spent as a nation over and above tax revenues..Some we have borrowed..some we have essentially created out of thin air..

We need to consider the possibility that those funds borrowed, were borrowed, in order to help maintain the illusion behind U.S. and other global fiat currencies. An illusion, which is, that currency/money represents a finite resource within our traditional understandings of the term.-- ..I.E. that money is a resource like wheat, or gasoline..... but it is not..

Look what we have been doing..the wheels have not come off the bus....Let's lose the pretext.. Let's let everyone in on the game..

Clearly we see the potentials..It's the future..It's where we are going if we are going to survive, productively, progressively as a species..

Clearly if properly managed..hundreds of billions could be additionally infused into the economy..to the benefit of the poor, the sick,. the environment..ect.. and done safely!!!

This process could occur in every national economy across the globe..

 "Realistic Monetarism".. It's the future!! It's the next global economic "ism".

Ukraine---

As long as the west continues to embrace a "Neville Chamberlain" strategy in the Ukraine, rest assured, history will repeat itself given the opportunity..At this time, due to delays, it is very unlikely that it would be productive for the United States to provide much more aggressive, non-economic/sanction based support without the support of it's European allies. Europe and the USA need to be thinking in terms of a "Berlin Airlift" united style of effort, in conjunction with the same degree of resolve found during that period, as well as that seen during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Ship, tanker leases need to be being actively and publicly explored. Alternative supply lines created. I E. assets required to make an embargo of Russian gas/oil feasible need to be seen being actively sought out. While earlier in the crisis some moves could have been made without telegraphing significantly ahead of time these related intentions, now the Russian Government needs to be told quietly, non publicly.. that they need to seal their borders with Eastern Ukraine, in regards to any and all military support, The cross border artillery use must end..Or NATO/USA will come in and help seal the borders,  and keep, create the foundations for peace, themselves,, and if Russia wants a war they cannot win,, If President Putin wishes to explore an end to his political career similar to what Saddam Hussein experienced..Then by all means order Russian military forces to fire upon allied peace keepers. Bottom line, the violence must stop, if the current situation is allowed to continue, odds of escalation, or unacceptable outcomes will grow.

(Ukraine should be a battle of ideas, with the Ukrainian government and people able to freely interact/ socialize and do business with those people, organizations that they individually or collectively feel would be in their best interests,,Instead of what is currently ongoing..I would like the steps needed to end the violence taken, followed by the international community getting to see the West, Russia, as well as the global community come together in a spirit of co-operation, making the best proposals for Ukraine, and then I would like to see this process spread across the globe.)

Re: Hardlines... Sometimes being able to see the brick wall that could potentially present, can allow more co-operative policy creation/decisions, and dialog to occur?

Africa, ongoing Ebola outbreak

I hope the people, organizations responsible for tracking and resolving such events are doing their jobs.. I would suggest/hope that developed/western countries are putting in place the needed number of investigators, and trained medical personnel needed to double, perhaps triple the numbers currently deployed. I would hope that these people would be ready to go within a couple weeks if not sooner if the number of new cases does not drop significantly soon. Infected people escaping from hospitals in a nations capital, or becoming highly symptomatic on jet airliners, not what we want to be seeing at this time. CSM

Point of consideration being..without sounding disproportionately concerned based upon the realities of Ebola's current degree of communicability. Organisms will typically attempt to evolve in the direction that will give them the best chance of survival...Including virus's... Each out break provides the virus an opportunity to evolve into a strain which could possess a greater degree of communicability. Why play around, get out in front of the outbreak, eliminate potentials for said evolution.

Pope Francis-- Marijuana policy statement about as wrong as you can be.

Reports claim that Pope Francis is against the legalization of marijuana..Pope demonstrates he is still capable of being about as wrong or demonstratively ignorant of needed reforms in this area as is humanly possible. Nothing "needed" in support of justice, or truth, or the promotion of a healthier society exists within Pope's stated position.

Iraq...

It has just been reported that the monthly death toll from sectarian, or anti government violence has climbed to nearly 800 persons.. Roughly being broken down as 600 civilian, and 200 security force personnel. 

I keep hearing the voice of some idiot saying "mission accomplished"..

I continue to see some clear similarities between current events in Iraq, and those events that took place in Vietnam ending in 1975.

Update: What about separation of church and state? and Tigard Tualatin School District another troubling situation not addressed?

On two Posts dated Aug 23,25, 2010..

I recently re-read these posts..I am not overly satisfied with the entirety of these posts, as they tend to be overly wordy, and they lacked clarity on some important issues that I did not catch first time through.

I think a point I was considering, one of many, was that we currently are able to separate from employment in the public sector those people that belong or support notorious hate/discriminatory groups. I also found the efforts that universities take to accommodate those students who are rightfully offended by the presence of such thinkers, who are members of the teaching faculty, of interest. I think I then extrapolated, as our awareness's continue to grow about discriminatory groups and processes..What about mainstream social groups or religions that have been causing life destroying harms through their ongoing discriminatory "cultural/intellectual" processes. Why should a person or group get a pass on accountability just because they claim the harm they do is based upon their faith/religion- I say that they, or their group should not..We just need to be sure and not go too far into areas of past historical failures while we address these very real social shortcomings.

We need to be sure and stay away from those other failures while we attempt to discuss and then resolve, in a positive fashion, these very real societal harmful contributors. 

And really if you have/had a religious organization/s willing to use it's political/financial power to destroy lives or pass legislation that allows groups of people to be targeted by these "church's" discriminatory processes, Why should the members of these organizations be surprised if they find that by their actions, they/their groups have finally reached the point that the backlash to said actions becomes similar to that experienced by the more notorious hate/discriminatory groups in our society.

(The realities behind these truths raises some tough problems, but issues and problems that must be addressed regardless. How do we have real/honest needed conversations about harmful processes and their real/actual origins, and create from those conversations other needed progressive growth in awareness's or realities that will be actually able to aid human society in the time lines required. For human society must face the real and pressing need to accomplish some very critical global/regional course corrections..and do so without factually crossing lines that should not be crossed, or inflaming the irrational natures/reactions of those no longer capable of having rational conversations about very important human social/cultural issues in need of reform/ improvement?)

So.... 

I think the general conclusions/concerns are still right on the money..I think that there is some measurable validity, as with some forms of police profiling, that problematic behaviors may be noted or experienced within certain groups/or associative organizations. I also think that some personal associations, such as being a card carrying KKK, or Skin Head member may be a valid dis-qualifier for many public sector, tax payer funded positions of employment, and the courts of the U.S. agree.

So, to be clear, on the issue of hiring for public sector, tax payer funded employment positions..I do not support any process that would, in the overwhelming number of real world possibilities, support any process where a persons religious affiliations would be something that would have to be disclosed or even discussed, or sought after. Simple affiliation is not a fair, safe, appropriate/reliable indicator in and of itself, in this particular area. 

I do support more vigorous hiring standards training and processes that would screen out those persons that have discriminatory beliefs. ( Pretty much, discrimination in all things has a overwhelmingly strong link to ignorance and intellectual dishonesty. Address these societal shortcomings and you would help eliminate discriminatory processes.)

Again acceptable processes would look very much like those that have been successful in eliminating those persons that embrace racial or gender discrimination from the ranks of public sector, tax payer funded employment positions. Noting that as of this date, in these areas room for improvement, as problems still exists, remain.

I am concerned that Putin's perception that Obama is a wimp may lead to further Russian Military intervention in the Ukraine and the deaths of innocent civilians?

Yup.. I hope I am wrong..

WWlll, wish I could say it's was absolutely not a possibility. 

Update: 5/2/14 Family member asked if I thought Obama was a wimp. No, absolutely not. I just hope he has a better view of things than I do. Which is a hope that I have found to be forlorn on more than one or two occasions in the past.

Ukraine- It's time for the U.S. and NATO to put troops on the ground in Ukraine.

Western Intelligence should have an actionable idea about what the current degree of public support exists in eastern Ukraine, regarding the militant pro Russian separatists. If the majority of the population just wants to get along and live in peace with one another, and if the actions or threats of violence presented by the actions of the pro-Russian separatists is not acceptable to the majority of the Eastern Ukraine populace..The time for NATO/U.S. ground forces to be quickly deployed in effective defensive positions along the Ukrainian border with Russia, as well as the between the recently redrawn Crimean borders and eastern Ukraine, Is now.

Key question then being.. If Russia/Putin effectively removed as a source of support or sustenance for the pro-Russian separatists militant efforts will majority of eastern Ukrainian population       stand down and allow non-violent solutions to be created or found? 

The Ukrainian national forces could retake needed areas and facilities. Deal with the Crimea later.

We cannot telegraph Russia/President Putin that this is in fact going to happen. President Putin/Russia needs to quickly exert it's/his full political-diplomatic capability, and get the Pro-Russian separatists to honor the recent agreement, that calls for dis-armament and surrendering of Ukrainian assets to current Ukrainian Gov. If that is, Russia/President Putin wishes to avoid the above NATO/U.S. move.

Tragic Jewish Center Shooting- Kansas
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and families of the victims in this senseless incident. Arrested suspect, a reported former kkk grand dragon..I will never understand this...How can a persons thoughts become so distorted/deranged.

The Ukraine, Russia, President Putin

Dear President Putin,

Many of your thoughts, beliefs, are well known.

Conjecture about a restoration of a political entity similar to that which existed during the days of the USSR is not realistic under the realities of current global evolutions. As to current situation in the Ukraine..

It is reasonable, as long as you go no further and damage to/or loss of human life does not further result, to expect Ukraine, NATO, The West to support long term security arrangements for Russian military bases/interests in the Crimea 

It is reasonable to, as long as you back up, and remove Russian Military operations from Ukrainian sovereign territory, to expect, Ukraine, NATO, The West to support strongly worded trade protections/access treaty's supportive of Russian export interests.

Sir, Economically Your/Russia position is the weaker one, you cannot prevail, you can only do more harm to your country than to others in both the long term, as well as short term. 

Militarily the Russian position is untenable, no chance for victory under the horrible prospects related to what will transpire if the major parties involved come into such a conflict.

You can still save face, as things stand now..but if things go much further, that will not be possible and ultimately it is projected that your own people will become frustrated with your efforts and your energies will be spent in trying to survive politically at home. 

Sincerely

Colin Stuart McCoy - The Sunrise Foundation 

Update: 3/19/14  President Putin is pushing too hard. The key to best possible outcomes and positively managed future potential lie in non-violence, dialog and diplomacy. The aggressiveness with which President Putin is pursuing his objectives will force the West and NATO to respond with not only more aggressive sanctions but resource re-allocations which will allow Russian gas exports shipped through the Ukraine to be eventually blocked, with the West, NATO then being in a better position to withstand the difficulties that would be more pronounced otherwise. President Putin fears/knows that if he allows pure self determination, conducted without the presence of Russian troops...That issues of personal freedom, and personal economic advantage will become apparent to all involved. Ukraine shifts/re-aligns with the west. His conduct, if it results in more death and property destruction will devolve into open military conflict that the west will not simply sit aside and watch. If his efforts continue, and he pushes further into eastern Ukraine, he will trigger an economic situation in which he/Russia will not benefit, will actually be seriously negatively impacted. Plus he will have created a civil war potential within the re-drawn borders. This is not an acceptable way to progress. As has been noted, Putin's behavior, negates much of the realities historic and otherwise upon which strengthens the Russian position-perspective, and paints Putin as just another petty dictator with ignorant Russian television personalities putting out ridiculous "nuclear threat" language potentials. Dangerous, distracting, unacceptable.

Update: 3/28/14 If western intelligence analysts conclude that Putin does in fact intend to invade/push further into Ukraine militarily. If the goal is to take action that will prevent this, and in so doing prevent all that would result. The U.S. and NATO, upon invitation from Ukraine, must put troops on the ground. It must be made clear that if Russia intends to invade, that the Russian military will have to go through the U.S., NATO forces..Implication being, if this is how Putin wants to play it.. It will mean war with the west. ( I am at a loss as to what Putin is trying to accomplish- to me it appears-troop build up, military supply line establishment- to be insanity personified? ) 

President Putin needs to be told, if it is concluded that the Russian military activity along the Ukrainian border is not "normal"..that said activity must cease and de-escalate or U.S., NATO Troops will begin to be deployed, upon Ukrainian invitation, along the border regions within Ukraine.

Update: 4/11/14 Russia claims Ukraine has an outstanding debt obligation for past Gas/energy shipments/discounts, in the range of approximately $34 Billion give or take..If true..and if we value Ukraine having the best chance to positively resolve all current issues with Russia.. I think the U.S. & NATO countries need to put a fair payment plan on the table that protects everyones interest, and should do so as quickly as possible.

Ukraine

Very well done...tremendous respect/humility for sacrifices made by those willing to fight for their ideals. Bravery of the nature being displayed is where we can see that collective repositories of knowledge and awareness related to those things that people used to proclaim, as being self evident, still exist and are proclaimed once again.."we (humanity) will be free".."we will not give up our right to self determination".

CSM 

My thoughts were shared on this developing situation back in March of 2012. It is always hard to tell if your voice or efforts are being heard..Sometimes it's a matter of thoughtful timing, and multiple creative placements best suited for hoped for dissemination. Other times you just have to try and be one of the shouting, horn blowing, drum beating "Whos" as in "Horton hears a", and hope/pray for the best.

Past post revisited- 9-9-12 The Democrat Party USA Utterly Corrupt and Manipulative

Occasionally I will go back through past posts..and find problems with their content or construction,, The above "Titled" post is such a case. In this post I was making a strong statement about serious integrity issues within the Democrat party USA.. These conclusions were based, in part,  upon an event at the National Convention in which language had been changed in an important part of the party platform. In my past post it is "garbled/mangled" concerning what the outcome of the voice vote was. A motion to Keep/restore the deleted language was held.Clearly,clearly, clearly--3 times a vote was called, and it was clear that the majority present wanted the language restored..Yet party leaders corrupted the vote tally process, right in front of multiple cameras..and called the results in favor of the clear minority.
