Why Hillary Will Be President
Semi-Satire: Why Hillary Clinton Will Be President
It has already been decided. The insiders have Hillary's election scripted for maximum ratings. It will look like a big race between power elite potentates for the ultimate prize - President of the United States. The plan is to split the conservative vote between a Republican and a populist Independent with libertarian sentiments. Remember Ross Perot? He split the conservative vote to get Bill elected. It worked back then. And Hillary is the designated driver this time around.

Robert O'Leary, BA (UMASS@Amherst-Class of '89), JD (WNEC School of Law-Class of '92), BioAcoustic Research Associate & Soundhealth Practitioner (BARA - Institute of BioAcoustic Biology - July, 2011), has had an abiding interest in alternative health since the early 1970's when he was inspired, by an American Lung Association commercial at school, to go home & convince his parents to quit 15 years of smoking. They did, & then the family adopted more holistic & healthy life-style choices which benefitted their lives.

Thereafter, Robert became an attorney, earned advanced martial arts belt levels [in Kajukenbo (the Emperado Method) & American Kempo under Grandmaster Kalaii Kano Griffin & some of his Instructors], became a singer/songwriter performer [releasing 3 regional CD's with his brothers, Paul & Seanunder the group name, Future Now], & his greatest & proudest achievement -becoming a Father. Robert brought this background to a new field - BioAcoustic Soundhealth [a/k/a "Vocal Profiling" & "BioAcoustic Biology"] - for which he became a practitioner in July, 2011, through Albany, OH's Institute of BioAcoustic Biology. This alternative modality, called an "Integrative Medicine " by the NIH, is relatively new to New England. It works by analyzing voice recordings in order to get information, about a client's state of health, to provide them with information & tones which will support their body's ability to self-heal & beautify. Robert is proud to have the opportunity to bring the knowledge & benefits of this modality to individuals & businesses in the New England States; through the opening of his office, RoMaYa Sound Health & Beauty, in East Longmeadow, Massachusetts.

Guest Category: 
Guest Occupation: 
Teacher of DREAMS
Guest Biography: 

David Rivinus began studying dreams while working with children at a mental health clinic in the late 1960s. During that time, he attended seminars offered by Gestalt therapists who were also dream experts. This led to him developing his own simple, effective method of dream interpretation. While doing his research, he was struck by how “dreamlike” the unusual events of waking life can be. His understanding that one can analyze and interpret these waking life events, reaching the same kinds of profound, helpful insights that one gains from nighttime dreams, revolutionized his approach to dreams and their purpose in our lives. Since then, he has taught dream classes on three continents and in four languages, highlighting both nighttime and “waking” dreams. In 2012, he was a presenter at the annual conference of the International Association for the Study of Dreams. He participates in online dream-related blogs, teaches dream classes via Skype and conference calls, and regularly facilitates a local dream seminar in his home town of Portland, Oregon. He wrote the book "Always Dreaming--Gaining Insights from the Metaphors of our Sleeping and Waking Lives" to document his findings.

Stan Goff
Guest Occupation: 
Activist/Writer
Guest Biography: 

STAN GOFF grew up in a staunchly conservative, anti-communist family. In 1970, he joined the Army. Goff retired in 1996 as a Special Forces Master Sergeant. During his tenure, he was sent to Vietnam, Haiti, Panama, Colombia, and Somalia, participating in several different military attachments. Goff would later write that his time spent in Latin America shifted his politics to the left. His experiences, particularly in Haiti, are recounted in his 2000 book, Hideous Dream: A Soldier’s Memoir of the US Invasion of Haiti.

In between stints in the military, Goff studied literature and philosophy at Garland Community College, Henderson State College, and the University of Arkansas at Monticello. Soon after retirement, Goff began a career in activism, studying Marxism and briefly joining the Communist Party USA.

After the September 11, 2001 attacks, Goff became active as a speaker against an invasion of Iraq. His status as a veteran gave him credence and popularity with anti-war activists. In 2003, Goff wrote “Bring ‘Em On?” for the online journal Counterpunch. It was a response to the taunting phrase “Bring ‘em on!” uttered by President Bush regarding Iraqi guerrillas.  In the article, Goff compared the Iraq war to his experience in Vietnam. He wrote of being told by a fellow veteran that “All Vietnamese were the enemy…this was a race war. Within one month, it was apparent that everything he told me was true, and that every reason that was given to the American Public for the war was not true.” He ended by stating that President Bush’s “legitimacy has been eroded as even the mainstream press has discovered that the pretext for the war was a lie. It may have been control over the oil, after all.”

The popularity of this article led to the formation, with other veterans and activists, of the organization Bring Them Home Now.

His 2004 book, Full Spectrum Disorder: The Military in the New American Century, critiques US foreign policy. According to the publisher, Goff “depicts the new ‘American Empire’ as over-reliant on technology, ignorant of the lessons of history, and backward in the stereotyping of other countries.”

Goff began studying and writing about feminism, particularly how it relates to war. This re-examination is brought together in his article “Sex and War”, where he argues that war is not an instinct of man, but rather, “men are made into killers by governments, corporations, and systems of power.” His latest book is a compilation of essays called Energy War.

Guest Occupation: 
Alan Watts Archivist
Guest Biography: 


MARK WATTS, the eldest son of Alan, continues to preserve the legacy of his father through maintaining a library of writing and recordings – both visual and audio at the Alan Watts Mountian Center. In addition to online publishing, the Center’s goal is to continue make the Alan Watts archive accessible for education and creative productions by providing materials to libraries, educators, producers, writers, musicians, editors, animators, and others.

Early Years

Alan Watts was born in London in 1915, at the start of the first World War. At a young age he became fascinated with the Far East, and at fourteen he began to write and was published in the Journal of the London Buddhist Lodge before writing his first booklet on Zen in 1932. He moved to New York in 1938 and then to Chicago, where he served as an Episcopal priest for six years before leaving the Church. In 1950, he moved to upstate New York before going on to San Francisco to teach at the Academy of Asian Studies. Among Alan Watts' earliest influences were the novelist Sax Rohmer and Zen scholars D.T. Suzuki and Christmas Humpreys. In late 1950, he visited with Joseph Campbell and composer John Cage in NYC.
 

Worldview

Alan Watts was profoundly influenced by the East Indian philosophies of Vedanta and Buddhism, and by Taoist thought, which is reflected in Zen poetry and the arts of China and Japan. After leaving the Church, he never became a member of another organized religion, and although he wrote and spoke extensively about Zen Buddhism, he was criticized by American Buddhist practicioners for not sitting regularly in zazen. Alan Watts responded simply by saying, "A cat sits until it is done sitting, and then gets up, stretches, and walks away."


1950's and early '60's

After teaching at the Academy of Asian Studies in San Francisco, he became Dean and began to give regular radio talks on KPFA, the Berkeley free radio station. In 1957, he published his bestselling Way of Zen, and in 1958 returned to Europe where he met with C.G. Jung. He was an early subject in pioneering psychedelic trials, and, after recording two seasons of the public television series Eastern Wisdom and Modern Life, traveled to Japan several times in the early sixties. By the late sixties, he had become a counterculture celebrity, and traveled widely to speak at universities and growth centers across the US and Europe.
 

Later Years

By the early seventies, Alan Watts had become a foremost interpreter of Eastern thought for the West, and was widely published in periodicals including Earth, Elle, Playboy, and Redbook. He appeared on CBS television's Camera Three in 1969, and in 1971 he recorded a pilot for a new show titled A Conversation with Myself for NET, the precursor to PBS. When the series was not produced, he recorded the shows with his son Mark and his long-time audio archivist Henry Jacobs in 1972. Overall, Alan Watts developed an extensive audio library of nearly 400 talks and wrote more than 25 books during his lifetime, including his final volume, Tao: The Watercourse Way. Alan Watts died in his sleep in November of 1973, after returning from an intensive international lecture tour.

 

ABOUT 'WHY NOT NOW?' - NEW DOCUMENTARY ABOUT THE LIFE OF ALAN WATTS...

Why Not Now? is a documentary film on the life and works of Alan Watts, and follows his life-journey and philosophy as it emerged and was embraced by the youth of the counter culture and subsequent generations. Why Not Now? has was been screened before half-a-dozen audiences and met with enthusiastic applause, with one viewer commenting that it was "a time machine that takes you back to the real heart of the revolution!"

The documentary includes classic interviews, vintage film, art, and photos. to which we added contemporary footage of Japan and Big Sur, music by Garth Brooks, animation by Simpson's animator Eddie Rosas, and Japanese-style woodcut prints by Tom Killion, brought to life by special effects artist Bruce Walters. The result is a refreshing and engaging look at Alan Watts in the language and media of his time, directed by his son, Mark Watts. Each film comes with a bonus DVD disc with an hour off additional material, The Essential Alan Watts, a well as "The Animated Alan Watts", featuring vintage animations from The Fine Art of Goofing Off and shorts by the creators of SouthPark.

Guest Biography: 

David Dees began his airbrush art career in the fast paced world of corporate advertising. Begging his way onto a staff position aDAVID DEES began his airbrush art career in the fast paced world of corporate advertising. Begging his way onto a staff position at an Atlanta sweatshop, Graphics Group studios, Dees was soon dealing with cutthroat art directors from New
York to Chicago, creating the eye catching visuals that sold everything from cartoon package designs on kids cereal boxes, to billboards of dazzling electronics, to the newest soft drink ads.

In the eighties, setting up freelance shop in Los Angeles, Dees had success with the movie industry, painting hundreds of video covers, movie ad campaigns, and store displays for his clients Paramount, Hanna-Barbera, and Walt Disney Studios.
 
Then, an interest in childrens book illustrations led to a long standing association with Sesame Street, where his colorful and wacky illustrations of Cookie Monster, Big Bird, and the muppets were featured in Sesame Street Magazine nearly every month for the last 15 years, including seven covers, and recently, four Sesame Street children books for Random House and Readers Digest Publishing.
 
These days, long since replacing the liquid airbrushed acrylic paint with photoshop digital art, high technology has revitalized the look and feel of his artwork.

Then, in 2006, Dees came up with an original style of Political art commentary inspired by the 9/11 truth movement and a passion to fight the New World Order agenda.
