Because I know most people in the US, at least, are fully focused on the presidential election for the next couple of days, blogging is on hold until after the final count is in.

It’s time for me to say something about the United States presidential race.  I did not want to take a stance this early.  But I find that I am firmly behind the patterns of Ron Paul as a Republican Nominee.  Google him.  He’s in the book of faces.  He’s on the You Tubes.

I traditionally vote democrat.  I think many “democrats” could get behind Ron Paul’s idea of “Constitutionalists.”

EDIT – 1.07.08 – Update – Ron Paul lost the last primary to Mike Huckabee. Who is for some reason wanting to follow my twitter…. Rally up when your state comes about in these primaries!)

Remember the date: December 19, 2007. The formal founding of the nation of Lakotah.

This is one for the history books.

The Lakota Tribe of Native Americans has withdrawn all treaties with the United States.  These treaties go back for around 150 years.  They have declared their land as an independent country, setting up a passport system, driver’s license system, and foreign embassies.  Citizen’s will not have to pay any taxes, as long as they renounce their US citizenship.

This is a HUGE event.  I can’t point that out enough.  The information I’ve been able to find hasn’t had much detail, but there are so many things I want to know. 

What is the immigration policy?  How are basic services(i.e. water, power, etc..) provided?  What laws will make this different from the United States?

This is extremely fascinating to me, and you can bet I’ll be posting more info on it as it becomes available.  For now, check out some of these links:

Fox News
Boing Boing

Further information will be posted as I learn more and as more is in the news.  If anyone has information on this, I would love to hear it.  Comment or Email me at lhasa.jack(at)gmail.com.

As many of you know, there aren’t too many causes that I stand firmly behind. For the most part, I just don’t care. Very few “great travesties” really hit home with me. Well, this is one of them.

Here’s a quote from the site:

“Officials in the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are now seeking public comment on the agency’s proposal to accept Wyoming’s disastrous wolf management plan and to give Idaho and Wyoming vast new powers to kill wolves — even while these magnificent animals remain listed under the Endangered Species Act.”

Here’s what’s happening. The government wants to take these wolves off of the endangered species list. This could work, assuming these states would put a plan into effect that would insure the current wild population would remain healthy and continue to grow.

But, listen to this statement and tell me if you think this is what’s going to happen.

“In January, Idaho Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter said that once the wolves are de-listed, his state would kill all but 100 of the wolves, making the decades-long efforts to strengthen wolf populations in vain.”

Governor Otter has made it clear: These animals will not be protected!

So, if you have any kind of human heart, I think it’s easy to see how much wolves mean to the human race. Wolves are a powerful archetype that still affects the conciousness of every man, woman, and child. Wolves are one of the last creatures in the world that represent true freedom. It’s going to take a lot of people to help keep these animals from going extinct. I don’t think that people can handle a world without wolves.

So, if you haven’t heard about this, check the link.

So, apparently, this, frankly, hilarious advertising scheme has upset some of the locals.

Isn’t it about time we got over ourselves a little bit? It’s biodegradable. It’s going to wash away with the next rain. So let it go. It’s not like it’s graffiti that’s going to be there forever.

And honestly, who knows who painted the original giant? Maybe he was just a commercial for a cartoon too.
