#FNFRIDAY Here's a little poem I wrote a while back! We may say we are unashamed of our past when we really are ashamed! This is truth to that feeling! Xo
I sing in vein
Underneath the crystal current
In hopes it’ll all just wash away
Stuck in your pouring rain
And I’m unashamed…..
Am I unashamed?
Flashbacks of grey
And I’m Locked away
Token me a lie again
So fragile then
A broken hearted girl
Searching for an answer
Searching for the world
In the pits of midnights abyss
No one deserves to live like this
I’m bleeding in your bliss
You favor Judas you share his kiss
Upon my cheek
As Tear drops rain at heavens feet
I cry to sleep.
Forgive them father for they not know what they do….
Forgive me father for I’ve dined with devils in hopes of saving their souls too….
Yet I’m unashamed….that I sing in vein.
My poems don’t always stick to the rhyme scheme of things! No rules here! xo
#WorldWednesday Wondering what the whole Occupy Movement is about? Check out their mission statement!
As we gather together in solidarity to express a feeling of mass injustice, we must not lose sight of what brought us together. We write so that all people who feel wronged by the corporate forces of the world can know that we are your allies.
As one people, united, we acknowledge the reality: that the future of the human race requires the cooperation of its members; that our system must protect our rights, and upon corruption of that system, it is up to the individuals to protect their own rights, and those of their neighbors; that a democratic government derives its just power from the people, but corporations do not seek consent to extract wealth from the people and the Earth; and that no true democracy is attainable when the process is determined by economic power. We come to you at a time when corporations, which place profit over people, self-interest over justice, and oppression over equality, run our governments.
We have peaceably assembled here, as is our right, to let these facts be known.
They have taken our houses through an illegal foreclosure process, despite not having the original mortgage.
They have taken bailouts from taxpayers with impunity, and continue to give Executives exorbitant bonuses.
They have perpetuated inequality and discrimination in the workplace based on age, the color of one’s skin, sex, gender identity and sexual orientation.
They have poisoned the food supply through negligence, and undermined the farming system through monopolization.
They have profited off of the torture, confinement, and cruel treatment of countless nonhuman animals, and actively hide these practices.
They have continuously sought to strip employees of the right to negotiate for better pay and safer working conditions.
They have held students hostage with tens of thousands of dollars of debt on education, which is itself a human right.
They have consistently outsourced labor and used that outsourcing as leverage to cut workers’ healthcare and pay.
They have influenced the courts to achieve the same rights as people, with none of the culpability or responsibility.
They have spent millions of dollars on legal teams that look for ways to get them out of contracts in regards to health insurance.
They have sold our privacy as a commodity.
They have used the military and police force to prevent freedom of the press.
They have deliberately declined to recall faulty products endangering lives in pursuit of profit.
They determine economic policy, despite the catastrophic failures their policies have produced and continue to produce.
They have donated large sums of money to politicians supposed to be regulating them. They continue to block alternate forms of energy to keep us dependent on oil.
They continue to block generic forms of medicine that could save people’s lives in order to protect investments that have already turned a substantive profit.
They have purposely covered up oil spills, accidents, faulty bookkeeping, and inactive ingredients in pursuit of profit.
They purposefully keep people misinformed and fearful through their control of the media.
They have accepted private contracts to murder prisoners even when presented with serious doubts about their guilt.
They have perpetuated colonialism at home and abroad. They have participated in the torture and murder of innocent civilians overseas.
They continue to create weapons of mass destruction in order to receive government contracts. *
To the people of the world,
We, the New York City General Assembly occupying Wall Street in Liberty Square, urge you to assert your power.
Exercise your right to peaceably assemble; occupy public space; create a process to address the problems we face, and generate solutions accessible to everyone.
To all communities that take action and form groups in the spirit of direct democracy, we offer support, documentation, and all of the resources at our disposal.
#FNFriday - Happy Weekend #PepSquad I'm taking you on a Journey! A night in DC!
Hey Megaphans! Hope all is well with you guys! I have been on the east coast for a few weeks visiting family and taking a little break! I wanted to keep you all involved in my day to day life so I decided to blog everyday! As my break is coming to an end, i wanted to share with you some photo’s that I took one night after spending a night on the streets of DC. I’m the type of girl who loves to experience all aspects of life! You can find me at a private event in Hollywood and you can find me roaming through the streets of your local town. There are so many wonderful types of people so why not take the time to experience it all? No boundaries.
One Saturday night my sisters and a few friends of mine decided to take over Adams Morgan Street in Washington D.C. And that we Did! I can say that it was one of the most adventurous club missions that I have ever been on!
Very interesting crowd here! This was our first stop! SMH don’t remember the name! But I DO remember these!! lol Don’t ask how I got it….the cool kids on campus get whatever they want! Haha jk
I’m not sure what’s really leaking in here….but it wasn’t bad to me! The music was actually live in here! I love to be where the people are!!!
Walking around and meeting people was actually very fun! The streets are very diverse! You can find anything from Jamaican, Ethiopian, to Pop and Hip Hop places! I embrace diversity so it was really a great experience!
With my Bff Court! xo
This guy started break dancing in front of me and my girls! Was so fun to hang with! Great dance battle between him and Court!
#TastyThursday - My Mom Has Me Addicted 2 This! Pumpkin Bread/Pumpkin Muffins! #pepsquad #megaphans
As the holidays are creeping near some of my favorite holiday dishes and desserts are being created in the kitchen and are being sold in stores! I currently shop at organic food store called Trader Joes, Most of you may not realize that regular grocery stores sell foods sprayed with pesticides, injected with hormones, and zapped with radiation. I don’t think that’s the way that God intended our food to be, if he did than our foods would already be radiated and injected with hormones.
But back the the program, after visiting my sisters school (Hence the picture with the construction Paper made Turkey Man) we took a visit to our local Trader Joe’s and bought one of my favorite things: Pumpkin Bread and Muffin Mix! It is so simple to make just like the box says you add Eggs, Oil and Water! This Pumpkin mix is sold only during this time of year so hurry to your local Trader Joe’s and buy a few! Eat it with something warm i prefer Organic Chamomile Tea , yummy yummy! xoxo
#WorldWendesday Don't believe that our Internet freedom could be gone by tomorrow? Wake up call! I've got proof! Check it out!
The “Stop Online Piracy Act” or SOPA gives private entities the power to blacklist websites at will. And it violates the due process rights of the thousands of users who could see their sites disappear from the Internet. The crime? Doing something as innocent as posting videos of themselves singing along to their favorite songs.
Learning from China?
These are the sorts of heavy-handed Web controls you’d expect to see in China, not in the United States.
SOPA (HR 3261) not only lets companies silence websites but also allows banks to freeze financial deposits to the accounts of website owners, potentially forcing falsely accused Internet enterprises out of business.
The bill was intended to discourage illegal copyright violations, but it addresses this problem by giving corporations way too much authority over the way the Internet works. It deputizes the private sector with the power to disconnect the URLs of any websites corporations contend are behaving improperly.
It gives private entities unprecedented power to rewrite the Internet’s domain name system (DNS), which translates your website request into an IP address to connect you to the correct location. After receiving a complaint from a company like Viacom or Sony Music, the government would force Internet providers and search engines to redirect users’ attempts to reach the websites that they chose.
The idea that SOPA would protect against online piracy and other Web crimes is a Hollywood pipe dream. As a technical solution, redirecting DNS would be virtually useless in stopping sophisticated online piracy — but it would have a strong deterrent effect on casual producers and consumers of Internet content.
As such the consequences for free speech would be grave. Imagine your kid sister creates a “fansite” featuring videos of her singing Taylor Swift songs into a hairbrush. The bill not only gives Swift’s record label the authority to “disappear” your sister’s site from the Web but could also land her in jail, where she would face severe penalties and a long prison term.
#TemptationTuesday- 5 ways to Naturally Exfoliate your skin!
BY BRENDA LYTTLE ⋅ NOVEMBER 11, 2011
Ask any fashion diva or drop-dead 365Gorgeous woman and she will tell you that the best way to keep your skin soft and radiantly beautiful is to exfoliate it regularly. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to do this. Your kitchen will yield so many natural products that you will find yourself scrubbing your skin as you work.
*Sugar – This is something that you use the first thing in the morning with your tea or coffee. This extremely good scrub removes the dead surface cells and gives you a radiant and soft skin. You can make your own sugar scrub at home by mixing equal quantities of cane sugar and oil or glycerin. Add fresh aloe vera gel to it to enhance its properties. Massage this mixture on your skin and leave it one for a few minutes. Rinse it off well with water. You can also use this as a body scrub. It will leave your body and feet soft, smooth and silky.
*Salt – This kitchen essential should be a essential part of your beauty routine too. Mix equal quantities of sea salt and olive oil and add a dash of orange or apricot oil to it. You have a moisturizing body and face scrub ready that will leave your body hydrated and refreshed.
*Oatmeal – If you thought that oatmeal was good only for a healthy breakfast, then you have another thought coming. Use raw oats with ¼ teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and 1 teaspoon of honey to scrub your face. Massage it in circular movements to slough off the dead epithelial cells. It is also known to promote cellular turnover.
*Green Tea – This tea that is rich in antioxidants is good for internal and external health. It is a good body scrub that can be used for sensitive acne prone skin. Green tea is rich in anti-oxidants and hence protects skin from free radicals.
*Walnuts – Mix equal quantities of yogurt with ground walnuts and scrub your face with it. Yogurt has anti bacterial properties and when it combines with walnut that has exfoliating properties, it makes an excellent scrub. It is also good for sensitive skin. Be sure to leave it on your skin for a few minutes before you rinse it off. All these can be easily found in kitchens. While sugar, salt and oatmeal are staples in all kitchens, walnuts and green tea are easily available too. Use them for a beautiful skin and glow with health.
*Guest post by Brenda Lyttle. Brenda Lyttle is a health and beauty expert who began writing for publications in her community in 2005 and now commands an authority in writing on healthy living, fitness, and anti-aging related topics. She is also a strong believer of the goodness of GHR1000, a popular HGH supplement, but insists that exercising can never be replaced by any supplement whatsoever.

HELLO AND MUCH LOVE TO ALL OF MY #MEGAPHANS OF THE #PEPSQUAD HOPE YOUR WEEK IS GOING WELL! I’VE GOTTA SHARE THIS RECIPE WITH YOU GUYS! I WOULDN’T BE RIGHT IF I DIDN’T GIVE THIS POSTING’S CREDIT TO MY SISSY @PINUPBARBI3 :D OBSESSED WITH STARBUCKS PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE SHE MADE THESE AT HOME ONE DAY AND THEY CAME OUT AMAZING! IF YOUR A COFFEE LOVER YOU MUST TAKE THESE SIMPLE STEPS TO CREATE THIS YUMMY FALL FAVORITE! WHIPPED CREAM NEVER LOOKED SO F’N SEXY!
Pumpkin Spice Latte (Vegan, Gluten Free)
1. Make coffee (a pot, a cup, in whatever fashion and however you prefer making your coffee. The stronger the better)
2. Make Pumpkin Milk
1 c milk (I used almond milk but use any kind you want from half and half to rice milk)
1/4 heaping cup pumpkin puree (more if you really love pumpkin)
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice blend, or to taste
1 tsp cinnamon, or to taste
1 tsp vanilla extract
sweetener of choice, to taste (I suggest 2 tbsp agave or 2 tbsp brown sugar or a pinch of stevia to taste; or try honey, maple syrup, etc. to taste)
Optional: pinch of ground nutmeg, ginger, garam masala, cardamom, or other warming spices to taste
Directions: Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and whiskwell by hand or blend all ingredients using a Vita or blender
Optional: Warm the finished pumpkin milk mixture in the microwave or on the stovetop (I do a quick nuke of about 1 minute)
3. Pour 1 c of brewed coffee into a mug and pour half the pumpkin milk mixture over the top of the coffee and enjoy. (Optional: Finish by garnishing with real whipped cream/whipped topping such as CoolWhip orTruWhip; and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice/cinnamon on top)
The other half of the pumpkin milk mixture is for the refill you know you will want. If you truly don’t want a refill, refrigerate it for up to a few days and use for your next latte, in a smoothie, or drink it as is. As long as you’re dirtying dishes, I always make a little extra for refills or for later.
The spices will not “blend” or entirely dissolve. This is to be expected and normal. If this bothers you, this may not the recipe for you and you may want to experiment with other recipes or techniques.
All spices and seasonings are to taste; in this case, mine. If you want to reduce the spices (or increase them), obviously adjust everything according to your own taste preferences. Some people may find the amounts I used a bit strong, but I like robust flavors.
#WorldWednesday Learn to Understand How The Federal Reserve Works! Knowledge is Power!
Welcome to World Wednesday’s! Every Wednesday we will be discovering and uncovering global information that is not normally discussed on popular blog sites and news channels. Information that is vital for you to know and understand. I believe that it is important to know the history of the people who are controlling important aspects of your life just as it would be important to know the history behind someone that you are dating or marrying! You don’t want to wake up one day handcuffed to your bed (not in the sexy way) because you never took the time to pay attention to the red flags and look into your partners’ background!! All nice people are not good people and many nice people are manipulative snakes. Knowledge is power some people hold the knowledge so they can keep the power. Think about that.
This Wednesday we will be uncovering the Federal Reserve! Many people are yip yapping about oh my goodness the President this, omg bank of America that, WTF Wall Street Whaat and they have no clue about the problem within the problem! Here are some eye opening facts about the Federal Reserve:
The Federal Reserve is NOT a part of the government as many people believe it’s a PRIVATELY owned corporation separate from the government.
Money, or for better words “bank credits that serve as cash” are created by the banking system when loans are made, so the Federal Reserve creates money out of air and loans it to the government with interest attached! All forms of currency are not issued by our government but by private banks.
Here’s a little scenario I found on a website to explain how this works:
1. government BORROWS1 billion dollars as a ” loan ” from the private bank.
2. private bank gives a 1 billion dollar credit to the government ( makes the money out of thin air ).
3. government now OWES1 billion dollars PLUS INTEREST to private bank.
4. private bank only created ” money ” for the principle and NOT the interest.
5. Even if government paid back the 1 billion dollars it would STILL owe the ” INTEREST ” on the ” loan.”
6. Therefore government must take out a second loan ( L2 ) to pay the interest on loan number 1 ( L1).
7. Private bank creates ” money ” for principle of loan L2 but NOT the interest of loan L2.
8. Government, even after paying off the interest of loan L1, and the principle of L2, still owes the interest of L2 as that was ( in our example ) never created yet.
9. Government must take out loan number 3 ( L3 ) to pay the interest on L2.
10. This process must be infinitely repeated as the interest to pay a loan is never made when the loan is made and must be obtained for payment of the previous loan by a new loan for the interest itself.
The Ultimate results of This:
The nation is FOREVER in debt to the private bank.
The accumulated debt and interest on the loans from the private bank only grows greater. It will NEVER be smaller.
More and more of the labor of the citizens of the nation must be spent in paying interest to the private bank for their ” loans ” to the nation.
Income taxes are unconstitutionally imposed by the hijacked government which is now under the control of the private bank and they are continually raised to pay interest to the private bank for the ” privilege ” of its ” loan ” to the nation.
The debt to the private bank, WHICH YOU KNOW AS THE ” NATIONAL DEBT,”can NEVER be smaller nor or can it ever be paid ( go to www.algaoaktree.com and click on the ” money ” link for the reasons why this is true ).
The financial and monetary policies of the nation are dedicated not to serving the interests of the citizens of the nation but to serving the interests of the real controllers of the nation and its future - the private, and unaccountable, bank which enslaves the citizens to it as it drains off the resources of the nation as its profit for allowing the nation to use the money substitute which it created out of nothing.
So what do you all think about this? The USA was built on a different set of rules… in this day and age the government unconstutionally gives its money making authority to a private bank by borrowing it from a private bank with interest attached. The USA, based on the authority of its own constitution (just as in the past), should have stuck to issuing money amongst the people to create the commerce of the nation. This way the government would be funded by the return of that money via taxes specified by the Constitution taxes (indirect taxes: tariffs, excises and imposts) all INTEREST FREE. Here’s an example of how this would flow:
Government wants to have 1 billion dollars in circulation to aid commerce within the nation.
Government issues 1 billion dollars into circulation to both aid commerce and to pay for government activities.
Government is funded by monies received via indirect taxes.
Government owes no money, either interest or principle, to any private interest as a result of this process.
No ” direct ” taxes ( such as a income tax ) are either needed nor imposed for either the functioning of government or to pay the principle or interest of any loan to any private corporation.
FACTS : Under this Principle our nation grew to be the greatest nation in the world ( most powerful and wealthiest ) WITHOUT a income tax.
So much revenue was produced by this Principle to run the government that the legislators in Washington literally didn’t know how to spend it all and had regular surpluses in government funding.
Giving the Federal Reserve this power has made so many other things in our world toxic, to start making a real change we must start with the root issue. The root issue is this toxic system.

#MegaphanMonday - Holiday dedicated to all #megaphans of the #psquad!! First Up- Jason Arias :D
Hello Pep Squad! I am introducing our new segment every Monday out of the week called “Megaphan Mondays” Where I show support to Megaphans all around the universe! It’s your special holiday where you get to shine!! Without you there is no me and I truly believe in my heart that each one of you matters I support your dreams to the fullest!! So lets introduce the first Megaphan for Megaphan Mondays, Jason Arias!
Jason Arias is a 22 year old Producer who has been involved in music for about five years so far! He has a big range of influences!! I found this interesting because so do I, i guess that you can say that our Ipods are both BiPolar. His biggest influences are Hans Zimmer and Linkin Park which are two different sounds! I have never heard of anyone saying that a major film scorer was a big influence on their musical sounds so i think that this is fantastic! I told Jason when i first heard his music that he has his own sound and as he keeps mastering his art it will just grow more!
I love to do music becuase uts the best way to express myself and how i feel. You’ve heard it for yourself so maybe you can hear the passion and love in my music. I chose to use my artist name “Focus” because at that time in my life is was a foundation and something to grasp, hold onto and keep my head straight. It kept me out of troble and was a way that i can feel good about myself when oftan times i feel i’ve lived up to nothing. I have a son hes now the fuse to the fire that i have. I want people to feel free when they hear my music and when they go to my concerts ( when i have them lol) i want them to feel a sense of freedom from reality.
