Need a good laugh?

JZ Knight News

“Dear Red States:
We’re ticked off at your Neanderthal attitudes and politics and we’ve decided we’re leaving: “Legitimate rape.” is almost reason enough!

We in Oregon intend to form our own country and we’re taking the other Blue States with us.

In case you aren’t aware that includes New York, Hawaii, California, Washington, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and the rest of the Northeast.

We believe this split will be beneficial to the nation and especially to the people of the new country of The Enlightened States of America (E.S.A).

To sum up briefly:
You get Texas, Oklahoma and all the slave states.
We get stem cell research and the best beaches.
We get Andrew Cuomo and Elizabeth Warren. You get Bobby Jindal and Todd Akin.
We get the Statue of Liberty. You get OpryLand.
We get Intel and Microsoft.
You get WorldCom.
We get Harvard. You get Ole’ Miss.
We get 85 percent of America’s venture capital and entrepreneurs.
You get Alabama.
We get two-thirds of the tax revenue. You get to make the Red States pay their fair share.

Since our aggregate divorce rate is 22 percent lower than the Christian Coalition’s we get a bunch of happy families. You get a bunch of single moms.

Please be aware that the E.S.A. will be pro choice and anti war and we’re going to want all our citizens back from Afghanistan at once. If you need people to fight, ask your evangelicals. They have kids they’re apparently willing to send to their deaths for no purpose and they don’t care if you don’t show pictures of their children’s caskets coming home.

We wish you success in Afghanistan, and possibly Iran as well, but we’re not willing to spend our resources in these sorts of pursuits.

With the Blue States in hand we will have firm control of:
80% of the country’s fresh water,
more than 90% of the pineapple and lettuce,
92% of the nation’s fresh fruit,
95% of America’s quality wines (you can serve French wines at state dinners)
90% of all cheese,
90 percent of the high tech industry,
most of the US low sulfur coal,
all living redwoods, sequoias and condors,
all the Ivy and Seven Sister schools plus Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Cal Tech, Long Beach State, CAL, San Jose State and MIT.

With the Red States you will have to cope with:
88% of all obese Americans and their projected health care costs,
92% of all US mosquitoes,
nearly 100% of the tornadoes,
90% of the hurricanes,
99% of all Southern Baptists,
virtually 100% of all televangelists, Rush Limbaugh, Bob Jones University, Clemson and the University of Georgia.

We get Hollywood and Yosemite, thank you.

38% of those in the Red states believe Jonah was actually swallowed by a whale, 62% believe life is sacred unless we’re discussing the death penalty or gun laws,
44% say that evolution is only a theory, 53% that Saddam was involved in 9/11 and 61% of you crazy bastards believe you are people with higher morals then we lefties.

We’re taking the good weed too. You can have that crap they grow in Mexico.

Sincerely,
Stan Singer
Citizen of The Enlightened States of America”

Yelm, Washington. October 26, 2012 — JZ Knight and Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment have learned today that a group responsible for disseminating a misleading and heavily edited video has plans for another posting. The group has now threatened to post a new video that includes several hours of footage from an online event sponsored by the School. The School’s attorneys believe that this may violate copyright law and be in breach of a contract signed by one of the group’s members. The School is investigating and will seek legal protection if necessary.

The Daniel J. Evans Nisqually Stewardship Award is given once every five years to an individual who has demonstrated extraordinary leadership in helping preserve the Nisqually Watershed and delta. Five years ago, Governor Evans presented the first award to Billy Frank Jr.

On October 24th at the Nisqually Indian Tribe’s Braget Farm Conference Center, Billy Frank, Jr. presented this award to the Honorable Norm Dicks for his tireless work towards protecting salmon, wildlife, and habitats in the Nisqually watershed and throughout Puget Sound. Congressman Dicks’ has obtained funds for the expansion of the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge and helped direct funds to the refuge for the biggest estuary restoration on the West Coast. He assisted in settling a long standing dispute between the Nisqually Indian Tribe and Fort Lewis and then directed funds to build a critical fish hatchery as a part of that settlement. His leadership with Pacific Coastal Salmon Recovery funding has been critical in helping protect over 75% of the river’s mainstem riparian habitat. Most recently, Congressman Dicks was instrumental in getting funds to implement an innovative approach to salmon recovery with the creation of a weir to support the continued recovery of wild salmon in the Nisqually.

Rep. Dicks is the second recipient of this award.
The Nisqually River Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit committed to implementing the Nisqually Watershed Stewardship Plan., a locally based, fifty year plan to preserve and promote the Nisqually watershed that reaches from the glaciers of Mt. Rainier National Park to the delta in the Nisqually National Wildlife
Refuge.

Dave Champagne, the brother of Virginia Coverdale, contacted the media earlier this week but they did not share his side of Virginia’s story. He and his family asked RSE to forward his letter to you.

JZ Knight News, Press, Yelm and Thurston County Issues

I was a student in the Ramtha School for approximately ten years, from 1991 to 2001. I am not a current student and don’t represent the school. I remember the Ramtha School as very unorthodox but as a place of peace and empowerment. Although I no longer attend the school, most of my friends and family have attended at one time and we all think the world of the work they do there.

Virginia Coverdale is my sister. She is largely responsible for the creation and distribution of recent videos about the Ramtha School. These videos are deliberately edited to make it seem that the school is a dangerous haven for child abuse and homophobia. Firsthand I can say that is not even remotely true.

I am deeply saddened that my sister has allowed her personal unresolved hurts and grudges to taint and distort the truth and actions of this school of thousands of innocent people worldwide, many of whom I know to be decent and loving people. What is more disturbing to me — and the reason I am finally speaking up after many months of silence — is that the motivation for my sister’s actions is based purely on bitterness and anger.

Virginia had an affair with JZ Knight’s partner, James Flick, a couple of years ago. James had left my sister within weeks of the affair being found out. She felt humiliated and became rageful and angry, not just at James but at JZ Knight as well. Virginia spent much of her time obsessing over them both and she couldn’t let it go. In the past year Virginia’s obsession took the form of blogging with other disenfranchised ex-Ramtha School students about JZ Knight.

A few months ago, she told me and my family that she was working on the Andrew Barkis Campaign for Thurston County Commissioner. She said she was hoping if she did a good job helping him get elected, he would offer her a job after the election. We were all glad she was pursuing productive work and getting on with her life. She said part of her objective was to oust current County Commissioner Sandra Romero.

When we saw the videos she posted on YouTube and distributed to state and local officials, we were shocked and sickened but we were not surprised. I tried to convince myself this was just dirty politics . . . but the videos clearly showed us that she is taking her rage against JZ and the Ramtha School to a broader audience under the guise of a political agenda. Sandra Romero and the campaign against her was just a convenient excuse.

I never wanted to have to say these deeply personal things about my sister but I just can’t allow such blatant distortions of the Ramtha School to go undefended by someone who has both been there and knows Virginia’s motivations.

I’d like to add that I know BOTH Sandra Romero and Andrew Barkis personally. I don’t feel either one of them deserves to be attacked in any manner like this. Sandra Romero, especially, has my deepest sympathies.”

Plutocrats: The Rise of the New Global Super-Rich and the Fall of Everyone Else

- From National Public Radio (NPR)
“Journalist Chrystia Freeland has spent years reporting on the people who’ve reached the pinnacle of the business world. For her new book, Plutocrats: The Rise of the New Global Super-Rich and the Fall of Everyone Else, she traveled the world, interviewing the multimillionaires — and billionaires — who make up the world’s elite super-rich. Freeland says that many of today’s richest individuals gained their fortunes not from inheritance, but from actual work,” quoting NPR.

Listen to the story.

- “Why Are There So Few Female Plutocrats?”
“There are now more women than men in the workforce, except when it comes to the richest of the rich, where men still dominate while their well-educated wives happily redecorate their homes.”
Click here for “an excerpt from Chrystia Freeland’s new book, Plutocrats, on the strange absence of female billionaires,” quoting The Daily Beast.

- From Reuters
“Today’s plutocracy, as described by Chrystia Freeland, can make for an ugly spectacle. It is an increasingly stateless and distant class. The very rich may sometimes dress scruffily or express an affection for common tastes, but their wealth naturally separates them from the rest of the public. It isolates them physically, as they flit from palace to palace in private jets. And it isolates them psychically, as they grow comfortable with the view that their wealth is not merely the fruit of talent and work but the mark of superiority.

Their wealth and isolation often contributes to a shortfall in empathy (or exacerbates a pre-existing condition, which may have helped raise them to plutocratic status in the first place). They are more likely to feel deserving of rewards, well-earned or ill-gotten. And they are less likely to feel a twinge of hesitation or regret when inflicting hardship on business partners or employees in the name of efficiency and profit,” quoting Ryan Avent for Reuters.
