Going on Nothing

22 Mar

“You have to be willing to get the shot that no one else will do.”  You have to be willing work and work hard.

This video is about the poverty that’s been endured by a videographer in order to pursue his passion.

His story resonates with me because I’ve also lived in or near poverty for most of the past 30 years in order to pursue my passion–and I’ve been blessed by every day spent in that pursuit.

His story also resonates with me as a lesson to all who claim, “I love freedom, I even love God–but there’s nothing I can do.”  If you really want to do it, don’t wait on a government grant or a publisher’s advance payment.  Just get up off the couch and start doing.  Learn to “go” on “nothing”–other than your passion and your faith.

    how inspiring…not being a TARGETED INDIVIDUAL or a victim of Harrassment by probably makes it a lot easier…to basically, like do that….film work.

    curiously, Mass Murder isn’t a compelling issue to examine for people hooped up on Fantasy and PRETEND….

    The plan was to build a luxury apartment complex on one of the mountains overlooking the capital. The area was known to all as “Holyland.”

    The plan, however, would require changing the area’s landscape via the construction of tower blocks, in what would later be described as “an unprecedented volume.”

    the vigor of youth, the determination to find a way…the unrelenting assault on faux boundaries imposed by those who would keep us enslaved…to perfidy and nihilism….therein our hopes and dreams reside…

    Remember the Alamo… PALESTINE ….Waco…OKC & 911.

    Also remember the people who did nothing for fear of being “targeted”.

    “One is the loneliest number” when someone hides, hunkers down, and keeps a low profile and never ventures outside of their own little foxhole. “One is the loneliest number” when people are so scared they won’t even use their own names. “One is the loneliest number” when people who dare to act at all, only act in secret.

      Most friends and family, sound familiar?; have run and hidden, not one time did they stand up…having been targeted most of my life, I thought something was wrong with me; not!

      Real names? Really? I find it disconcerting to hear allies in the exposure of evil poke, prod, and chide those of us who would protect themselves against reprisal. Speaking truth with one’s own name is to take the fast road to “being listed,” targeted for eventual setup, and ultimately being harrassed, intimidated, or disappeared into silence. Anonymity is a PROTECTOR of truth, an extender of life. It allows more of us to say more and to speak for a greater number of months or years before getting destroyed or compromised. Real names? Who cares what my name is? Of what importance are shapes of the letters on my birth certificate? It’s the facts, thank you. It’s the exposure, thank you very much. And when the object of our truth is a Leviathan with the full power of an advanced technological police state … I mean, really … get with the program.

        To: Exactly my point,
        You got it. If I commit a “real crime” what difference does it make what my name is? However, it is of extreme importance to the powers that be,i.e,,e g., your/my name & S.S.N. I cannot have a name if I “give it” to “anyone” & I cannot “give” anyone of them something I don’t have, i.e., a S.S.N. BUT they can give us 3 hots & a cot for not giving them the “info” they want. I do not have ANY Government ISSUE ID. I am ISSUE from/of my Mother & Father.The ‘probable cause for an arrest this day & time is, “probably cause we want to.” I kid you not. I believe you know this anyway. I DO.

    define secret..

    like is the opposite of Secret…{WITH PROOF} telling friends and family and neighbors that REAL TERRORISTS are murdering people huddled in a Church/Home while the media tells LIES on all the “NEWS” broadcasts…

    being ARRESTED in PUBLIC on a Bogus charge…have allegations made that are untrue, defamatory, have all means of support removed, be rendered homeless, and then attacked repeatedly by aggressive psychopathic STATE actors with “advanced Technology” to inflict extreme discomfort among other unpleasant realities…associated with being a TARGETED INDIVIDUAL
    while being dragged into court on a bogus charge for 6 &1/2 years..


    Janet Morris of the U.S. Global Strategy Council, a proponent of non-lethal weapons, believes that “We can better serve our national interests at home and abroad by projecting power without indiscriminately taking lives or destroying property.” In a recent position paper, she has identified some two dozen non-lethal weapons anti-personnel and anti-materiel technologies and called for the development of a national non-lethal policy and strategy to promote and guide their development.

    But the articulation of such a policy, including its proper limitations, has been stymied, she says, by the rigorous secrecy imposed on the subject.

    In many cases, the non-lethal approach merely involved gang stalking…

    Did Timothy McVeigh secretly invent a massive SUCK bomb…did the Al Quida Boys cooking Pancakes at the World Trade center have to keep their Secret Pancake Recipe a secret…?

    A group of American business and political leaders are building a pro-Israel media “war room” in Washington, D.C. The group will be called “Emet”—which in Hebrew means “truth.” Emet will try to address biased media coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and also make the case that the conflict, while serious and important, pales in comparison to the larger geo-strategic threat posed to the United States and the West by Iran and Iraq, both of whom are trying to build and/or acquire weapons of mass destruction. Funding Emet is Leonard Abramson; he sold U.S. Healthcare to Aetna in the mid-1990s for $8.9 billion. Abramson has recruited a powerful board of directors, including Bernie Marcus, founder of Home Depot; Les Wexner, founder of The Limited; Edgar Bronfman Sr., who once owned Seagram’s; and Lou Ranieri, a major Wall Street player who now co-owns one of Israel’s largest banks. Also joining the board are Jeane Kirkpatrick, former U.S. Ambassador to the UN, and Jack Kemp.

    one feller told me one time that its hard to remain anonymous with your picture on the wall at the post office, but that was like 30 years ago…

    “Do Establish Justice”, is an Ideal at odds with “Let’s let the Enemies of Truth and Justice print the currency, Own the Media and operate a Crackhouse called Congress.

    I like how he does not notice the weights he bears to bring about an accomplishment or desire he wishes to have. I believe that he knows his limits, but as he continues his LIFE (work) he knows that he gets stronger and able to accomplish more and more of his desires. He is only limited by his mind.
