Ask Todd… Until the Holy Spirit does break us we might not awake. Avoid the flesh, avoid self-will. Let go. As long as you play God, even for yourself. Lay down your self-will. Be willing to be broken. It is the circumstance that finally brings us to the real strength we all require. The one person is out there that will complete you and them; that which once was once yours is now His, after you do fully give away. Live for Him. Repent; submit your self-will to Him. Dictate to God how you are hoping, our stubborn will are in His control. You want to take credit for is not yours; honest repentance is an act only he understands. We play God in life. Are we willing to lay it all down? What do you have, what have you got your hands on that you’re willing to hand over to him to create, in your own being, a more malleable lump of clay to be shaped more into the likeness of His son? What does your stubborn will consider that is your personal ability, that no one can, or will, ever have the power to take from you? Let’s assure you: whatever is can be gone in a split moment. All our hopes, all our lofty self-opinion, all of our power and or talent. Grasp that gift; take too much pride from whatever we think as ours, the talent He‘s put A finger on, prepare it for it’s demise. See, our self centeredness, our vain activities we use to only show off; that is has a bullseye on for His act of Love. Love sometimes means stripping away what you think is you, what what we believe makes us more than others. Be happy to hand it over, be willing to let what be a provision for the glory of God. A thing is only worth it’s joy is it’s succession; that. A painting is a perpetual gift; to all. be happy and give it away. Only then will it ever be ours. http://texaslegacy.org/transcripts/george-russell https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkgwegM1Xdc icruise.com/cruise-lines/norwegian-cruise-line.html wordpress.com/post/onlizinenet.wordpress.com/2320 https://music.youtube.com/watch?v=28Fp-yazJxw&list=RDTMAK5uy_kset8DisdE7LSD4TNjEVvrKRTmG7a56sY .o./’ THANKS TODD
The Story of the Carolina
Originally built in 1927, the Carolina Theatre in uptown Charlotte is being lovingly restored to its original splendor and will soon serve as a dynamic civic hub.
The Carolina Theatre closed in 1978, but it was never forgotten. The Carolina Theatre held special memories for thousands who attended events during her prime; and for others it represented a piece of architectural history too important to tear down. For 40 years, political leaders like former Councilwoman Patsy Kinsey, organizations like the Carolina Theatre Preservation Society and community activists like Charlie Clayton, Lisa Lee Morgan, Sally Van Allen, and John Apple pursued development options for the Theatre. Their efforts to raise awareness of the theatre and its historical significance to the community ensured that the theatre would not be torn down and preserved the opportunity for future restoration.
In Spring of 2012, Foundation For The Carolinas approached the City of Charlotte requesting that the Carolina Theatre be gifted to the Foundation. FFTC felt it was uniquely positioned to lead the development of the Carolina Theatre property. As the adjacent neighbor/property owner, the Foundation had a vested interest in the site and sought to ensure that the property was a compliment to the surrounding neighborhood, a landmark for Tryon Street and a strong civic and entertainment destination for Charlotte’s Uptown.
As a nonprofit, the Foundation had no market-driven financial requirements for the Theatre’s development. It had the opportunity to leverage the airspace above the Theatre for development, and had the ability to bring philanthropy to the table to accomplish the renovation. The Foundation was awarded the Carolina Theatre and its associated land in 2013 by the City of Charlotte. With this gift, the Foundation announced a $51.5 million capital campaign to launch the formal rebirth of the Carolina Theatre.
Carolina Theatre’s primary focus will be civic uses such as lectures, town hall gatherings, annual meetings, symposiums, and panel discussions, with secondary uses to include film, arts and entertainment. The space will serve as an extension to the conference space in the Foundation’s headquarters and provide the Foundation with an additional offering for its public, private and nonprofit clients.
in so doing create activity.
To become the community’s most beloved theatre – a place everyone goes to talk, laugh, think and connect.

War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.I believe in adequate defense at the coastline and nothing else. If a nation comes over here to fight, then we’ll fight. The trouble with America’s that when the dollar only earns 6 percent over here, then it gets restless and goes overseas to get 100 percent. Then the flag follows the dollar and the soldiers follow the flag.I wouldn’t go to war again as I have done to protect some lousy investment of the bankers. There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of all our homes; the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket.There is never ever a trick in the racketeering bag that military gang is blind to. It has its “finger men” are to point out enemies, it’s “muscle men” to destroy enemies, its “brain men” to plan war preparations, and a “Big Boss” Super-Nationalistic-Capitalism.It may seem odd for me, a military man to adopt as compared; Truthfulness compels me to. I spent thirty- three years and four months in active military service as a member of this country’s most agile military force, the Marine Corps. I did serve in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General in The United States Marine Corps. And during that period, I spent most of my time being a high class muscle- man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.I suspected I was just part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all the members of the military profession, I never had a thought of my own until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military service. I helped make Mexico, especially Tampico, safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefits of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912 (where have I heard that name before?). I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested.During those years, I had, as the boys in the back room would say, a swell racket. Looking back on it, I feel that I could have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.
At the time of his death, Major General Smedley Darlington Butler, also known as “The Fighting Quaker”, was the most decorated Marine in US history; he was the only person to be awarded a Marine Corps Brevet Medal and a Medal of Honor for two separate military actions. He had also become an unrelenting voice against the business of war.
Raised by prominent Quaker parents, Smedley Butler defied his pacifist lineage by joining the Marines just before his 17th birthday. He served in Honduras, Nicaragua, Mexico and Haiti (earning his Medals of Honor in Mexico and Haiti). Butler was known for his leadership and commitment to the welfare of the men under his command. He rose quickly through the ranks to become, at age 48, one of the youngest major generals.
Prior to World War II, Butler spoke out against what he saw as admiration for Fascism and for Italy´s leader Benito Mussolini. He was punished for telling an unfavorable story about Mussolini, avoided court-martial by accepting a reprimand. Because of his rank, he was able to write his own reprimand and never apologized to Mussolini.
Butler retired from the military in 1931. By then, he was beginning to question US involvement in foreign conflicts. He had come to believe that war–in particular WWI–was really a profitable business for the few and at the expense of thousands of lives. He thought of himself as a cog in the imperialist war machine.
In a booklet titled War is a Racket, Butler wrote, “In the World War [I] a mere handful garnered the profits of the conflict. At least 21,000 new millionaires and billionaires were made in the United States during the World War….How many of these war millionaires shouldered a rifle?….The general public shoulders the bill. And what is this bill? …Newly placed gravestones. Mangled bodies. Shattered minds…For a great many years, as a soldier, I had a suspicion that war was a racket; not until I retired to civil life did I fully realize it. Now that I see the international war clouds gathering, as they are today, I must face it and speak out.”
War is a Racket grew out of a series of speeches Butler gave to whatever group wanted to hear his views. Though he faced criticism, Butler was steadfast in his beliefs about war, US imperialism, and a growing Pro-Fascist movement. He spoke frankly and honestly about his experiences and opinions, and was very popular with the American public.
In 1934, Butler went before the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) to expose a conspiracy against the government. He had been recruited by a group of wealthy Pro-Fascists who had hoped to use him in a coup against President Franklin D. Roosevelt. He went along, gathering intelligence about the plot, and took it to Congress. Butler’s assertions were not aggressively pursued, and the matter was largely dismissed. However, an internal report to Congress from HUAC confirmed the veracity of the plot.
Smedley Butler died in 1940, but his presence is still very much alive. The Boston, Massachusetts chapter of Veterans For Peace is named the “Smedley D. Butler Brigade”, and he is featured in the documentary The Corporation.
