Thank You For Your Service. Please Work For peace

http://namayaproductions.com/thank-you-for-your-service-please-work-for-...

I had my veterans for peace hat on and a
young man came by and said,
“Thank you for your service, sir.”
And he shook my hand.

“Thank you.” I said. “But
can you do me a favor?”

He seemed surprised, but
quickly said, “Yes, sir.”

What Happens Next After 46 Vote?

Now that the 46 proposal has been defeated by all 4 towns voting, can we get some discussion & info about what happens next?  I kept hearing that if it was turned down "the state will impose" a plan on the towns.  But I also know there's some sort of alternative group that has apparently already been meeting and is now maybe gearing up to provide an alternative proposal to the state before whatever the deadline is for that.

There have been a number of e-mails back & forth among Guilford citizens today.  My sense is that the alternative initiative is more active in other towns, not so much in Guilford, and I think people here are eager to know about this.

Thanks, Don

Brattleboro Teachers and Parents Beware of Act 46 Merger

I believe strongly that an Act 46 merger will negatively affect the children and the teachers in the Brattleboro schools. As we all know, Brattleboro has a much higher rate of poverty than other towns in the WESEU and we also have many families who have been negatively affected by the opioid epidemic with families being disrupted and children in foster care or being raised by caring grandparents.

School Merger a Bad Idea

I hope members of our community will vote against consolidating our local school boards into a centralized mega-board. A consolidated board would remove the power to make locally responsive decisions and intentionally sever the bonds between communities and their schools. A single board will find itself so busy administering multiple facilities that expediency will force them to limit local input.

Some have argued that centralized authority would be more efficient and better for kids. In fact, we have a remarkably responsive, efficient system already. We do not have to merge. School boards already have the power to work together to make needed changes

New Hat

I just got a new “Tinfoil Hat” and I’m itching to try it out. The Las Vegas incident seems like an ideal opportunity.

While it is too soon to know if there are signs that the Las Vegas attack was a false flag, possibly supported
and enabled by what Ron Paul and others refer to as the Deep State, anyone who does not at least ask the question has not been paying attention.

There is convincing evidence that law enforcement is not telling us the whole story.

Gematria: The Elite's Obsession With Numbers

The world we live in today is controlled by an elite cabal. Very wealthy men and women own the land, control the religions,secret societies, the media, the banks, and the resources. They don't care about us. They treat us like cattle. To be branded, taxed and milked dry. They have been ruling since before the days of Babylon and probably much longer. They have installed puppet governments around the world that represent them not us. The sooner people realize this the better off we will be.

This elite cabal are obsessed with numbers and rituals. They study the caballah (where the word cabal comes from) and as part of their practice they are well versed in Gematria. This elite that controls the media, 5-6 corporations control the media, codes all their stories and sports with Gematria.
