Better Way Getting Closer 6
It’s five o’clock in the morning and we have been up all night looking for a way to start this latest blog entry. With so many things to talk about regarding the Better Way, one would think it would be very easy to just rattle off some more stuff about technology or whatever. Even we think that sometimes. But not so. Sometimes we have to wait for hours or even days for the next information flow to begin. We have an endless flow of thoughts going through our head, but somehow, we can’t get them translated to paper anywhere near as often as we would like. In our last blog, we copied over quite a bit about building islands out in the Pacific and I was wondering if I had somehow derailed our train of thought by reverting to writing from nearly 20 years ago. This is one of the less explainable parts of what we have been doing all these years, when we can’t seem to get the thoughts onto paper. But that is just the way this has worked for me; for us, for over 40 years. I can go back to the very day that we started this phase of what we are doing and remember how different and strange what happened to me that day was. We have had fitful starts, written and then destroyed hundreds of pages of material, and even went so far as to write a book that was subsequently rejected by the first publisher to whom we sent it. We ended up throwing that away too. Why? It seems that it all had to do with our learning process. It is the very same process that anyone interested in following our trail would have to endure. We have had a few people who imagined they could do this. The only thing was, they wanted me to help them do it. That we cannot do. This is between God and me; God and I, take your pick. We can’t do that for anyone. Our job is to pass along information and eventually bring to people the things of a Better Way that we have been working on for so long. We cannot be anyone’s intercessor for God. Despite a huge booming business that has emerged over the centuries claiming to do that very thing for people, in the final analysis it is you and God, and no one else. That is in part why we had to throw away so much writing. We had to learn that very thing our self, before we realized how true it is. Like most of you likely do, when we thought of God, we automatically thought of religion. That seemed to be the lock and key marriage that no one could dispute. Yet in truth, that is simply what through centuries of conditioning, people have been persuaded to believe. And when you don’t really have any true conflicting evidence, it just doesn’t occur to you to think or believe otherwise.
We began to suspicion that a big reason people have been letting religions intercede with God for them is because they are simply afraid of God. Frankly, it doesn’t take a lot of reading or listening to the religious messages to see why people might be afraid of God. He seems to be a huge contradiction of personalities. One time He supposedly loves you, then another He is going to send you off to a fiery eternity of torture. It had me scared of Him, with seemingly no way at all around it but to submit to the “salvation” demands of the religions. It might be that we would still be stuck in that very spot if not for what transpired one sunny December afternoon in 1975. I can’t set any stage for you, we can only relate some of what happened. From it even you might see that I could easily consider myself one of the most fortunate men on earth. Or, you could be a lot jealous. If that be the case, all we can say is talk to God about it, that’s what we have been doing since that wonderful day.
Ok, so why should you be jealous? Don’t rightly know. When we run into it, we wonder some too. I suspect that God has plenty of jobs for people who actually want one, but you do have to want it. And, you have to take it on His terms, not yours. It is most likely however, that we could relate to you every day of our adventure since that fateful day, and tell you that it all was necessary and even years before that were necessary too, your feet might ice up very fast. Not you? Ok by me, but tell that to God. It has not been a pretty journey, nor have we been a heroic trooper some of the time (too much of the time maybe). We have even worried at times that maybe we would be fired. But after a very long while we finally came to understand that if we needed to be fired; if it was actually going to happen, we would never have been hired in the first place. Does not God know everything? Does not He know the past, the present, and the future? Of course, He does, He is God. He creates all those things. So, I finally got what He was very gently showing me for a very long time, if He didn’t want me, He would have never hired me; He would have never chosen me if you prefer. People don’t seem to like to hear about anyone being “chosen”, so we use the term tepidly and with more than a little caution. Interestingly enough, a lot more people get chosen than have any interest in answering up. As we understand it now, God always knew that we would take the job, but He also offered it to huge numbers of people before it finally got to me. Why? Because they needed it more than we did. Why that is is pretty simple, they had farther to go to get through the gate than we did. Don’t be so surprised, we may not be all that bad. There are people who are better off, some who are worse off. Lots of you are in the middle too. Not so bad, not so good. Of course, there are those who figure they are more to the good side than the other direction, which could be why many to most of them were offered our job before it got to me. You are not really the so-called “middle class”, but you very well could be in the middle.
The other day we were talking to a person who is very dear to me and one of the things he said to me was that he was not interested in the religious stuff, only the technical stuff. That seems to be the position of a lot of people. Is that because religion is so woeful, or God is so scary, or what? Or is it that everyone seems to be an expert about God, which they somehow can only relate to through some sort of religion? People often like to preach to others, or at least they like to tell you how what they believe is better or more right than what you believe. And to the contrary, they want to hear no part of it. I can tell you, but don’t tell me seems to be the manta of the religious day. So, we are not too surprised when we introduce people to our writing through instruments like our blog here, and they want to shy away and say no thanks. Yep, that is a bit frustrating for me. It is a lot like we are talking to an empty auditorium. It is what happens when you mention God anywhere but in the accepted places, like churches. You can get away with a few words, but after that, take it to the church. Well then, this world is my church I suppose. If that is how it has to be, no problem. You may have already suspected that we really do intend to have said church one day. Mainly we *like* to talk about God, and rather than bore the masses with it, it seems wise to simply have a place where if people go there, they know what to expect. A Better Way is a lot of things to a lot of people (all hopefully, but we fear that won’t be the case). There is a lot that people need to hear about God related to that Better Way, because there is none without Him. It will come about when it is supposed to and that will be because He makes it so, not me. That is the business of God, and for that He hired me. The church part is Him allowing us to pass on what we have learned about him personally, share my personal experiences, and hopefully teach others how they too can learn how to communicate with God as we do. We are no one’s intercessor. We don’t carry anyone’s message to God. We won’t intercede for them, NO ONE can do that, regardless of what they claim or in whose name they claim it. God talks to you, you talk to God, as simple as that.
We listen to a lot of people going about the business of this world without ever really including God in it. That is definitely where the Better Way is different, it totally and completely includes God. The problems of this world do not get solved or fixed because it isn’t done with God’s help and direction. You don’t go to church to get that, you go to God. You don’t pray to God, you talk to God. And you don’t sit around waiting for “voices” to give you the word, you pay attention, try to learn and never be completely satisfied with what you think you know. You could be wrong, and you will be wrong, a lot. But if you let God help, the wrongs don’t hurt, they teach and you learn. It takes very little comprehension to see that the vast majority of the people of this world do not include any such effort in their daily lives. Some figure they do it when they go to church, or when they pray, and that takes care of it. God is our Creator, He lives with us. He isn’t “out there” somewhere, while we are all here struggling to get by. I know this is more of the God stuff than most want to hear. But we have one up on you here, ours is real. The stuff is real, the Better Way is real, and most certainly our God is real. (Not my God, our God; yours and mine. I don’t own Him, nor do you. Actually, He owns us. You might want to think about that now and then. This might seem like a bit of a rant, it isn’t. It is just one man trying to get you (whoever you are) to open your eyes and realize that you are about to embark on a journey you likely do not think even possible. Who really believes in regeneration? Who really believes in continuing life that is not full of pain and sickness? Who really hopes that their future can be better than anything they have ever imagined? Not many from what we have seen so far. But we are telling you it is coming. This is not the second coming, whatever that is supposed to be (yes, we are well-schooled on it). This isn’t Jesus coming back to save the day, or the lost souls, or whomever he is supposed to save. Truthfully, we have had to wrestle with the issue of Jesus from the very beginning. We do wonder some, even to this day. Jesus is so ingrained in anything to do with God for more than a billion people, it is nearly impossible to be entirely free of him or the story. It is a Biblical story, coming from a Bible that has a lot of stories and a lot of accounts of things God supposedly did or didn’t do. The best I can say for the Bible is most assuredly God has His two cents worth in there too, just as He certainly does in everything cranked out religiously, trying to convince people of this or that. That is because God is also the defender of those He creates. He sees to it that for those who really are seeking the truth, they can find at least triggers which will help them think their way through to God. We learned that about the Bible, and that is why we still make references to it from time to time. Don’t forget those who tell you the Bible (or any other ‘sacred’ book) has to be all right or all wrong, tells you that because they know there is truth in there and the only thing they can do is try to get you to accept their scams along with that truth. I guess we could call the extra something besides a scam, but that seems to fit it pretty well. Religion is a big business. Both for making money, and for controlling people. Zoroaster preceded Jesus by many years, as many as 1500 years or more, depending on whose account you go by. There were books (scripts) written about him too. Some of that writing matches Biblical writings exactly. Look it up. He too was supposedly the son of God. Yeah, I was disappointed too. What we found more recently about Zoroaster is that more variations have crept into the supposed history of that religion over the last 40 years or so. After we suggested you look it up, we did the same, just to be sure of our information. Lots of the latest “scholars” have been pouring out all sorts of new data, so it seems to have muddied the waters considerably. Thus, seek cautiously.
So, are the preachers, pastors, priests and whomever else all evil? I rather doubt it. Specifically, we can say that is extremely unlikely. What is more likely is that some people (men and women) try so hard to believe, that they do. They then spend a lot of time trying to reinforce what they believe, and that easily consumes them. There is something that nags at them (if that is the word?). That something is God, nudging them to *keep going*; don’t stop just because you *think* you have it right. Seek out more, you know, as in, seek and you will find. (Yes, it is “seek and ye shall find”.) For them, if they had pressed on, they would have soon quit what they were doing and maybe got down to doing something more helpful. They may yet get that opportunity… (We like those three little dots of emphasis. We think they are cute.)
We are not trying to rock your boat. You can read this before you can see any reality associated with the Better Way. Thus, you are sort of flying blind. We often tell people that we do not expect anyone to walk away from Jesus or the Bible or whatever icons they use just because we say what we say. You have to make your own peace with God to do that. If you really do believe God exists, then understand that if you are trying, He knows that. You are not in trouble for believing who they say Jesus was/is, or that the Bible is all fact; truth, unless you already know the actual fact of it. We tell people to continue believing what you will, as long as you find it necessary. There will be lots of things you can get involved in with the Better Way while holding on to those beliefs. But to get involved will begin to make changes in you. The more you participate, the more you will change, and as far as we know, you will change your understandings about God all by yourself (actually it will be with God’s help). You will have to avoid the Better Way to avoid that. Stay out of our stores, stay away from our products and avoid listening to us too much. Do that and you may be able to avoid changing your beliefs. You will know you are making a mistake however, so you’ll have to plan for that too.
This is not generally the way change is presented. Most change comes in little bits and pieces, often over a period of many decades. For that reason, it is usual for people to sit back and wait, letting change come to them. True to form, that seems to be what people want to do in the case of the Better Way and the message that goes with it. It is bothersome for us in one way, but believe me waiting is very difficult, and we have found those who have expressed some interest in the Better Way nearly always get stumped by the wait. We sort of figure that the wait isn’t a wait at all, rather the situation that God has always had a date set and simply got us started well in advance of that date. That gave us a lot of time to learn a lot of things. So, it isn’t really waiting at all, it is doing things that need to be done before you have to put them to use. That’s how it would be for anyone else, and that has not been looked upon too favorably. People seem to want things now, not at some far off future date. Far off future apparently translates to “probably isn’t true”. Let’s move on.
FUN HAD BY ALL!
Well just after writing the above, my computer software went south. At first it looked like all was lost because we could not get this computer to boot no matter what we did. As you can see on the blog, we put out an S.O.S. for some suggestions. Early yesterday we received a call from our good friend Charlie. Charlie has on many occasions over the past years been right there to help with our computer problems that would come up. He lives 70 miles away, so I have to admit I didn’t think of him at first. But he called and said that he had read the S.O.S. on the blog and offered help. He even offered to drive down to Oroville and bring me another program boot disc to see if it might work. Later that day (yesterday), that is just what he did. Lo and behold, he did get my computer to boot with another program instead of the Windows program. He used something called Linux Green if I understand it right. Well, things booted right up and we could see that it wasn’t a hardware problem, but a software problem. We were able to locate my blog files and copy them off onto a thumb drive. Once that was done, we copied everything on the hard drive to an external hard drive. Then we plugged in my mirror drive where we had an 11/16 copy of the Windows software plus everything else on the hard drive at the time, and copied it all over. After a couple of hours, we were back in business, even if I was set back to November, 2016. That left me with various updates to make and having to copy back some later date files. But the big thing was I didn’t lose everything! All thanks to the help from a) God, and b) my good friend Charlie! In fact, I do think Charlie was a Godsend for sure. Why we crashed we don’t know, but it looks to me like God had Charlie just waiting in the wings so help would be there. Charlie had even taken a week off from work and was as available as could be! What a wonderful finish to a distressful problem beginning. Thank you, Sir, and thank you Charlie! (AND also thank you James, who gave me several workable ideas on how to find out what was wrong and even try several things that might make it work. He was on standby for us to go to his house -70 miles away in the other direction – to help hands on if necessary. Great friends, both of them!)
We think the events that we just noted are a good example of how things happen, and how God works at times. I don’t really think God had my computer software go south. That looked a lot more like tampering (which I likely had to have a hand in for sure), including the possibility of me just being careless or sloppy. I don’t recognize anything we did to effect that, but somehow something messed the software up. But surely God knew that was going to happen. We see lots of things that indicate He did and had us even prepare for this event. Charlie just ‘happened’ to take a look at the Linux program and decide to download a copy of it onto a DVD. I just ‘happened’ to decide to put out a call for help on the blog, which I generally never do. Yet we did. Not often do we do that. I can’t actually remember when we did it last. We had tried everything we knew but couldn’t get it going. So, Charlie was there. Then, since we needed to save all our critical files (blog, finances, business, LMT, etc.), we needed a big hard drive to copy everything over. It just so happens that 2-3 years ago, we bought an external WD hard drive that has been just sitting in the box waiting to be used. Sue just happened to notice it, got it, and we were in business. I didn’t really have a use for the hard drive when we bought it, it was just a good buy, but it has set in the office, waiting. We have experienced a lifetime of such ‘coincidences’. Except, we totally believe that these are not coincidences. God helps *or* wants to help lots of people this way. You just have to be willing in the right way, and not simply expecting God to be waiting on you hand and foot. So, this to me was a great example of how God can and does help people when they are willing to be helped.
If you sit and watch much news, you should be struck by the increased audacity showing its ugly head today. Very clearly, the majority of Democrats and the media, seem to hate our current president, Donald Trump with a passion. The only real reason we can identify is because he says he is going to change how things work in government. Because he is (supposedly) not a politician, he seems to be drawing the ire of all sorts of people, even people from his own Republican party. A thought here: If Mr. Trump is not a politician, why is he a Republican? Is it because that was the only way he could get on the ballot at all? Perhaps. It is very difficult to qualify for the ballot in all 50 states if you are not a Democrat or Republican. We could ask why that is, but unless you have been living under a rock, you should have figured that out by now. Remember yo-yoism? Well, it definitely has a hand in how governments work. Don’t think otherwise. The system in the United States is no different than every other system in this world as to being tailored to suit yo-yo operations, not that of God’s way. There is no question at all that if there is to ever be a Better Way, a lot of things are going to have to change. If you have been following our blog at all, you should see that we talk about a lot of things that simply have no way of coming to fruition without there being major changes in attitudes and ways among the people, and within the various levels of government. That can seem like an impossible issue to resolve, except with God, nothing is impossible. Thus, we will go on, seemingly blind to the way thigs are, and talk about the way things can be. We fully expect that it will indeed be God who makes that all possible. We have very little faith in any possibility of politicians making it possible. We will go into a few things that just happen to be forefront political items right at the moment and you can see what we mean.
Right off the bat there is currently a lot of talk about some changes in the current tax structure. Both sides of the aisle (again, why are there only two sides?) are doing little more than playing political games with the issue and if there actually are any tax changes made, they will mostly be not much except those with more money will likely benefit more than others, albeit in various clandestine ways. In the end, perhaps the so-called middle class will get a benefit or two, and perhaps lose some by losing deductions on other taxes they pay. We really have no idea what congress will settle on, or what the president is willing to sign, we’re just passing along some speculation based on current conversations. But to be sure, it won’t go anywhere near what it should be and will be in a Better Way. Again, we are projecting here, because we see no approval of our ideas by any of the government crowds. We think there will be more than a little bit pf approval from the general public. Of course, they will likely all say that our ideas are all impossible, so actual agreement will not likely be there. Most people are defeated by the reality of it has always been politics as usual, and seems like that will always be the case. Notwithstanding that, this is much how we see things working in the Better Way. At least think about what we say, you might find it interesting.
The best tax plan that can be implemented at the moment is no taxes. That’s right, income taxes should be eliminated entirely, both for individual and for business. Besides that, the plethora of other taxes, showing and hidden, should also be eliminated. Beyond that, this tax elimination should extend down through every level of government, right down to local government. In short, ALL taxes should be eliminated immediately, if not sooner. Also eliminated would be all those fees that people have to pay in one form or another. The Social Security taxes or fees, whatever you want to call it, would be eliminated as well. In sum, absolutely nothing should be deducted from a person’s wages. Businesses should have to pay nothing of any kind. And just in case you might think we have left something out where people are paying, that should be eliminated too, whatever it might be. There should be no sales tax, no road tax, no excise tax, no luxury tax, no any kind of tax. These are all excuse methods to take money away from people and put it into the pot for those who run things. No wonder the politicians spend more time and effort in trying to get elected and re-elected. It is a pretty profitable gig. And, no wonder that there are very protective methods in place to tightly control just who can get into that circle at all, from the top on down. There should be no fees for things like licensing your vehicles; any kind of vehicles, road, boats, flying or otherwise. There should be no fees for permits. To be sure there do need to be permits and licenses of different kinds, it is just that there should be no fees associated with any of them. This is a brief, not an extensive document, so we may have left out other places where the governments are taxing or charging fees. Even though we had not noted it by name, all property taxes would be included in that no tax declaration. Taxes/fees and any other excuse to collect some money should be eliminated from all transportation, services, etc. In sum, no fees, no taxes, no kidding. Eliminate all of it immediately. After that, cancel all back taxes and fees owed, both for business and for individuals. Do not make any refunds either. The system would just be frozen, then eliminated. The only related money that should be collected is money associate with direct fraud and theft. The latter two being an option, but we can see where they should apply because of the blatant dishonesty involved.
That is a quick picture of how things should be changed in government, immediately. Of course, you can see that if all of it were applied, most of the revenue of the governments (all levels) would be eliminated. For centuries, it has been common practice for the government/ rulers of the people to tax them to whatever degree was seen fit. Sometimes the taxes were more, sometimes less, but most of the time taxation has always been there. Various and sundry ‘fees’ were also applied anywhere they could be schemed up, as little more than a way to increase sapping revenue from the people and more often than not, the businesses under the government or ruler’s control. Wars have been fought, hundreds of millions of people have died, and the methods have never stopped. They change with the times, but they never stop. In the end, the system only dreams up more ways to get more money from the people. Whoever runs the system gets the money of course. Obviously, next comes the big question of how then would the governments get the revenue they needed to run them? We haven’t overlooked this at all in our apparent zeal to eliminate taxes and fees. Not by a long shot. We just wonder how many of you who have been reading this blog might think you have some ideas on what our answer to that question would be. We won’t keep you guessing. In the first place, it conspicuously has to do directly with God. So, God is the first answer. After that, everything else is tied in to Him as well. All we will be talking about then in some form or fashion, ties directly to God. Even we do not see any way at all that in this world making the changes we talk about could be possible. Maybe that is why it all looks so impossible, people don’t generally think of God in any sort of help or direction like this. But we also don’t have any history of God ever being given a chance. Isn’t that interesting. God has never been given a chance, yet people believe that He can’t, couldn’t or wouldn’t do it. One has to wonder how people can be so sure of something they have no history of ever being tried not being possible. Well, here we are telling you that you are going to be in for a considerable surprise. What we hope is that you are all wise enough to learn from what you see and begin changing your ways. Doing so will make getting through the gate a very easy venture indeed.
Let us go back to a basic premise that we told you about in an earlier entry of this blog. We told you that part of the Better Way is to ignore all the current reasons people have for going day to day until they die, and turning them to training and building skill experience so they could both prepare themselves to get though the gate, and make themselves qualified to do so. That means that we intend to ignore and abandon all other ambitions that people have because no matter what those ambitions might be; no matter how noble (?), altruistic, satisfying or profitable any of those ambitions might be, they ALL end in death. They always have and always will. Why then would we want to steer you to any of them, no matter how profitable or attractive they might seem or be? We do not have one good reason for doing so, so we don’t. Because we do have a course that will take anyone who wants to change through the gate where continued living is waiting, that is what we see as the best we can do for people right now. We call it the Better Way because it will always be improving, just as you saw with our accounts of how we will build islands, 1998 version and today’s 2017 version. If you think you can find the *best* way, go for it. We doubt you will find it however, but if you think you will, go ahead and try. It is our understanding that the *best* way is far beyond the understanding or preparedness of anyone here, including yoyos. Thus, our Better Way.
Everything the Better Way will do is aimed at that ultimate goal for each and every person, to get them through the gate. We do not exclude yo-yos in that, although that is something God will have to arrange with them because we have no access to them, nor would we seek any out. That is not our job, our job has to do with the people here, all of them. That said, lets’ try to explain just how we would finance not only the Better Way, but all the government programs as well. You have not yet learned the extent of the BW programs, but we will enlighten you as we go. First, let us ask a simple question. Given the business atmosphere and attitudes of today, about how much revenue do you think the BW programs, facilities and products that we have discussed thus far would generate? Let’s have you look again at only a few products for starters. Take our Drygas for vehicles. You will likely see it start in the beginning neighborhood of $1 per gallon. It will increase mileage for a vehicle by at least 10%. We can and eventually will go lower in price, we are just starting out with a higher price. How much of the business do you think we can draw? Don’t forget there is a version of drygas for every type of conventional fuel, diesel, aviation, butane, propane, kerosene, etc. Just consider the gross revenue for all that if you can imagine it. Never mind cost for now, or expenses. We will cover those later. Besides the drygas, just go through all our blog writings so far and try to imagine what sort of revenue we might develop out of all our LMT products and services. It is not that important, but give it a whirl anyway. Also, remember that we have not told you of 1/10th of 1% of all we will have access to in the Better Way. We have been working on this for a very long time. Thus far we have invented and developed thousands of products and services, thousands. If you estimated less than a few trillion dollars, you are guessing low. And again, note how much has been talked about thus far. That is what will generate those initial trillions. More than that, that amount will come from very low prices that will be going even lower. While you might say that will decrease revenue, don’t forget we will be adding a lot more as we go and the result of that will be to considerably increase revenue. BUT, you should also note that we are talking about just revenue coming from the United States. There is an entire world out there which also needs help through the Better Way. Given the state a lot of those people are in, and the condition of their countries, it is to be sure that there will be less revenue coming from a lot of those other countries. The United States and some other better heeled “first world” countries and peoples, will indeed be paying for more than a lot of the other countries. The lesser countries and their people will need more help and that will increase costs involved. That is one of the reasons that the drygas prices will start higher than they will be later on. It is giving people an opportunity to contribute toward that help the other people of the world need. If some don’t want to contribute, they simply don’t have to buy our products and services. We do not take donations. We do not solicit donations, ever, so buying our products and services is the only way anyone can contribute toward helping others in the Better Way.
If we were like some people in this world who have made billions of dollars profit from God’s services and technology, we would be pressing for the highest prices people would be willing to pay and cutting costs as low as possible so we could make and squirrel away billions of dollars of profit. Even at higher prices, there is no doubt our revenue would be in the trillions, as would be our profit. Note we said what they have are God’s services and God’s technology, albeit somewhat mangled. It came from God, and had it not, there would be none in this world and we would indeed be living like cavemen. Believe that or not, but it is the truth. Unless you know of some other creator besides God…
We are not like those people. So instead of doing things their way, we will do things God’s way. Remember once more what the real purpose is behind the Better Way. It is to get everyone we can through the gate and on to continued living. Continued living that obviously includes regeneration. Prices, profits, even services and products are all determined according to that goal. There is no other goal for us at all. For those people who choose to join with us and help in the BW, that has to be their goal as well. If it isn’t, then they can still work toward reaching their own gate, but it will take them more time and some additional work and difficulty. Would you expect it to be any different than that? Simply stated, you help more, the more it helps you and the better you fare. It is a pretty simple equation. So, beyond a level of living God determines for us, and what that costs, all the rest of the profits generated anywhere in the Better Way will go into the ‘help people’ pot. Out of that pot will come all the revenue for all government expenses and all other Better Way expenses. At first, because there is a timetable to the Better Way growth, plus there will be some inordinately high expenses while we are getting people to try the Better Way, we will indeed need additional revenue. That revenue will come from God; as arranged by God. It will come in the form of our own expense account. We will then pay for any and everything that needs additional revenue. Some needs examples we see are matters like the U.S. national debt, which is now over $21 trillion, as absurd as that figure sounds. There are absolutely no plans in the works or even imagined to pay off that debt, it is only steadily increased while kicking the repayment can on down the road where future generations can tackle the problem. Given current attitudes, the can kicking will just continue there too. Instead of doing that, we will pay off the national debt by loaning to the country, interest free, whatever it takes to absolve that debt. We in turn will have a plan by which we will progressively forgive portions of the debt as the country meets specified goals toward helping other people in the world. Just a side note here. About the only thing this represents in the “America First” jargon, is that we see the United States having the responsibility because of their position of wealth and power, to be the first to stand up and take on the help giving that comes through the Better Way. A lot of people here have all but abandoned the rest of the world in terms of any interest in helping them. It has indeed become a “me first” society here and that is definitely something that conflicts with the basic purpose of the Better Way. As to how God will provide that additional revenue, He will provide as much base products like gold, silver, etc., as are needed. We will then use the products as monetary exchange to debt holders. The exchange is final, and non-arbitrary. We will pay based on a current market price and make the exchange accordingly. The debt holder can only take their payment, there is no refusal. Refusal will only result in the debt being cancelled and no further claims acknowledged. Exchange prices will favor the debt holder, allowing for some potential for falling gold (etc.) prices. We will compensate for that potential drop in prices. Generally, we will set a base price value that is well below what the market is willing to bear. If it does try to go lower than that, then we will continue to support that set price, making it relatively impossible for the market to drop below our set price. You usually want to buy at a lower price, but few are willing to sell at a lower price. That is simple economics.
Yes, we know that much to all of this will be scoffed at by all who imagine themselves to be serious thinkers. These aren’t your ways at the moment, and they certainly are not the ways of the world right now. It seems that God mentioned something about that, “My ways are not your ways,” He said. Try to remember that.
We have other programs that do not generate any profit revenue at all. Our health care program, the Better Way Health Assurance (BWHA) is such a program. The program will provide full and complete health care for everyone, period. The cost per person will be $10 per month. Qualified families will pay $10 for each parent, then an additional $5 for each of their children. That means legal children. Any other person they might be taking care of will have to pay the $10 individual price. So, a family of 3 to however many children will pay a total of $25 a month. If there is only 1 parent, it will be $10 each for the parent and $5 for the one child, then a maxim of $25 total for any other children. If anyone cannot initially pay the $10 per month, we will pay it for them until such time as they can pay it. The same applies to the family rate if that cannot be paid. Don’t forget that we can hire anybody, so while an initial situation might require the help, a person should be able to go to work and pay their own way. In the case of a parent who has to stay home with their children, we consider that a job and will have a pay schedule for that to anyone working in the Better Way program. Otherwise we do have other arrangements. The health care program includes any valid health need, including dental. It does not include arbitrary procedures, like face lifts, so-called beauty treatments and so forth. Those are elective issues that we will not cover. Some of it we will do, some of it we will not do. If we will do an elective procedure, we will charge established rates for the procedure. In all genuine health needs situations, no one is ever turned away. We do of course, have to establish a complete system of health care facilities, which we will begin doing once we begin our Better Way program. We may either buy some existing facilities, or contract them to provide health care to our patients until we can establish our own facilities. By doing that, we can offer our BWHA program much sooner than we otherwise could. This of course could drive up the initial costs of the program considerably. Once we are able to handle all our patients with our own technology, costs will come down considerably. We have been planning different aspects of this for many years. We assume of course, that when we say costs, you know that we are referring to what it will cost the BW, not the people. We have already noted what the cost to the people will be, $10 per person, or less with a collective family.
Another BW program that is very important concerns the road and highway system in the United States. (Of course, when we go out to other countries, the same applications will be made there as well.) The cost of maintaining the roads in this country is way higher than it should be. There is not much use in lamenting why that is, it just is and needs to be addressed. We will be able to do that on a total scale basis. Presently, the main construction materials used for roads are concrete and asphalt (or blacktop, same thing). We expect to remove both of these kinds of materials and use some entirely new LMT products that can last much, much longer. The materials have just about no wear at all, so in most cases, putting down a road is the end of it. That road will last indefinitely until by choice it is removed, changed or whatever. The available materials list is somewhat long, and not of any particular interest at the moment. What is of interest is how the roads will hold up and how much maintenance they will require. One of the main types we expect to use is a material somewhat like a very firm rubber, although it is not rubber at all. It is a water product, and has several different versions for a variety of needs. There are many technical things built right into the roadway surface material. That is done because it is cheap to do so and allows various road features to be placed anywhere along its surface. LMT products often are made this way, simply because it is easier than adding on some feature at some later date. We also assume in many products that progress will be made and needs or qualification of use will change. That just makes it easier to add features as they are needed or are earned. An example is an LMT vehicle like a car (or buggy as we sometimes refer to them). All cars are built to drive, float and fly. Which of these features can be used is determined by who is using the vehicle and what are their qualifications. It is easier to do this in the beginning rather than add kits on later, or have to switch to entirely new vehicles.
We generally make roadway material in big rolls, usually very thin and several miles long. They are laid out much in the same way as the skidrail track is rolled out. A roller unit moves along just above the ground rolling out the material. As it rolls out it passes through expanders that expand the material from its basic form of an extremely thin layer, to a layer somewhere between 2” and 6” thick. This is only the standard thickness, not the actual capacity of the material. The material can expand to well over 100’ thick. There are a few situations where that thickness might be needed. You will see later. The material also is expanded sideways, to form up to six lanes wide if necessary, although we are talking here mostly about 1 or 2 lanes wide. A lane is 12’ to 15’ wide. If it is a two-lane road, there is an additional foot width in the middle for lane division markers. There are also side markers on the edges of the road. Prior to this material being laid out, there is the obvious road preparation. With conventional construction, this is the main part of the construction and commonly takes weeks and months to complete a few miles of road. More time is involved when there are things like bridges involved. Our construction is quite a bit different than that. Obviously, there is some engineering involved, but because that is pretty basic with us, we won’t dwell on it a lot. A lot of the engineering of the road is built right into the road material. We will have a machine that travels along the determined roadway course doing the following: It will scan ahead to determine elevations, total road width and various other conditions. It will lower itself to the desired elevation and begin by removing any material that is in the way. All this material is completely reprocessed, so there is no waste material. Because of this, the machine is able to set and maintain a steady pace. For the moment, we will call this machine the Surface Building Machine, or SBM. The SBM is also taking some of the material it removes and converts it into a very porous type of base that has CLUs added to it so it has the same expansion capability as the road surface layer has. The purpose of this material is to fill gaps, small gullies and the like. We do not use culverts, instead we use this base material. It has the ability to accept and pass through water in very high volumes, more volume than even a swollen creek would have. There will be times when larger gaps will require bridges, we will get to that in a moment. We generally cut the roadway down into the ground a foot or two. But because we are also trying to maintain level and small grade changes, the ground will at times fall away because of undulations in the ground surface. In these places, the base material will only expand to about 1’-2’ thick. When the ground falls away more than this, the bottom of the base will remain perfectly rigid and bridge over the dip. These bridged areas can be over 100’ long before we determine the need for another bridge under the road base. We do NOT have to actually add a bridge for distances beyond that. The base material has a version of drysteel, one of the DSX formulas (base drysteel is DSX-243), added to it. A 1’ thick layer of base can easily span 20 miles with no other support and absolutely no sag to it. It would have to be curved downward some to allow for the earth’s curvature of course. Following a groundplane will implement that curve. As a side note, the actual road surface layer has the very same strength. We do at times add bridges for their aesthetic value. Bridges are often fine feats of engineering that are very enjoyable to look at besides being functional. In our case, there is no real need function here, so they are added mainly for their beauty.
Another feature of the road base is that it can hold a considerable amount of water through absorption as noted earlier. In fact, the entire base becomes a sort of holding tank for water. At selective places like gullies, creek crossings and even river crossings, the water can be released. This is done by making a magnetic “hole” where water can go out. Such holes are placed as previously noted, so water is not released in other areas of the road where it could possibly flood. Given all that, you can assume that we will lay down some mileage of road base. Following closely behind the SBM is the machine that rolls out the road surface layer. We shall call that machine a road surface machine, or RSM. (Acronyms save a lot of typing.) The RSM will keep up with the SBM, so behind the two, the basic road is installed. It would not be unusual for these machines to operate at a pace of 5 miles per hour or more. Some of it depends on what sort of materials the SBM is encountering. In general, the road layout is determined by a variety of conditions. If need be we can cut larger swaths through hills, but if too large, we often opt for a travel door to pass the area. In steep mountainous areas, we will often skirt around a cliff rather than cut into it. This is in effect making a bridge along the cliff for the distance necessary. These options are often made in terms of their scenic value. We will even include scenic rest stops on some of these cliff bridges. In places where it is prudent, magnafences are added to either totally restrict passage, or to limit passage. Where there is a possibility of rock falls or winter avalanches, we install overhead magnafence covers like we do with skidrails.
The road surface has its own built-in speed limits. Most likely the road surface will be green, with white or yellow dividing lines. When you approach a stop sign, the road surface will turn yellow. Much closer to the stop sign, the surface turns to a light pink, then gradually turns darker red as you approach. Right at the stop sign the color is the same red as the stop sign. These are fixed colors of the road surface. The thing is, the green allows you to travel the speed limit. We will set a maximum speed limit for the area of the road you are on. When the surface color turns to light yellow then gradually to darker yellow until it hits the pink area, your vehicle will be slowed down if you do not begin slowing down because of the upcoming stop sign. This slowing will progressively continue into the pink and up to the full red at the stop. Your vehicle will stop somewhat abruptly if you did not brake soon enough. Leaving the road to stop you will be uncomfortable, but it will stop you, always. There is no way to proceed through the stop sign until you havecome to a complete stop and the way is clear to continue. When the way to continue is clear, your lane in the intersection will turn green. This is a basic explanation, there is a lot more to it however. The very same coloring system is used for traffic lights. The road stays green while the light is green. When it turns yellow, the road surface leading up to the light will turn yellow. When it turns red, the yellow starts further back and the red progression appears. There is no way to run a red light and there is no way for cars to collide. There will be of course, all sorts of safety features for these new roads, besides the ones just mentioned. The road surface is such that a vehicle can skid very little on it. It is not possible to spin the tires, even in winter or in the rain. The mean temperature of the road surface is around 70 degrees, which means it cannot ice over no matter what the weather. The surface will also absorb rain, so it stays nearly completely dry. We have noted earlier where the water goes. The sides of the road are slightly tapered to merge with the shoulders of the road with no drop-off. Where the center line is double, cars cannot pass over it, nor can they pass over a solid line on their side of the road. They also cannot leave the roadway at high speed. They have to be going slower than 10 mph or so to leave the road onto the shoulder. We expect to redo all the roads in the country eventually. Not only will doing this vastly improve the safety of the roads, it will also greatly reduce the cost of road maintenance and upkeep. There is the initial investment in the new road surfaces, but that is absorbed by the Better Way, which means of course, it will be paid for by us.
We may visit the road matter a little later on, but for now we have extended this blog entry a bit beyond its normal length. So, we will leave off for now and be back soon with the next chapter, Better Way Getting Closer 7. See you there.
