Chief rock cover-(HUGE)

Welcome to the website of Deb E. Dee, a wild rock and roller who really cooks, and mountain woman to boot that is not shy about her love of country music , and the country. And yes, Deb E. Dee is her real name, though she has sometimes been known by others.  photo HaloofPeace75dpipng.png Deb: "This is a picture that I painted from memory of the wondrous halo rainbow that appearred over the noon prayer circle at the 1988 Rainbow Gathering of the Tribes held in the Angelina National Forest in Texas in 1988.It had been a difficult gathering for many.The heat was sweltering. The state and national police were wreaking havoc among the attendees, and one woman, "No Guns" was her name, had been run over by an irate and sick minded individual driving a truck through the crowd as she danced to celebrate non-violence. She lay in critical condition in a nearby hospital.The tradition of the Rainbow Tribe is that we meet to pray for peace on the fourth of July, here in the states. It is an international gathering , and circles are formed on that day the world over.We had been observing silence according to Rainbow Family Tradition since midnight the previous night.We gathered at eleven AM, also a tradition, and held hands in a circle for silent prayer for one hour. At exactly 12 noon, just as we were to observe breaking of the silence, I felt drops of water. I looked up to see my friend Iris (Iris, by the way is also, and not co-incidentally, I believe, the name of an ancient goddess of the rainbow) crying and with the sun over our circle and the clouds all around, we all looked up to see this most beautiful circular halo rainbow directly over our prayer circle. Peace, Love and Organics, and Goddess Blessings to all. "  Photobucket Photobucket "For our edification oand education-I have to ask-why have we allowed fear to erase from our U.S national conscience our memories of these important tenets of conscience and accountability? Does anyone remember the atrocities of Nazi Germany? Why have we seemingly learned nothing? To hell with the rule of the dollar.IT IS NOT THE BOTTOM LINE! I have been very blessed to have had or to have been able to earn what I need, Which is not a lot, usually. I live very simply, often busking on the street to earn a few bucks, Sometimes that is a way to make some money with my music, but mostly I mean peace of mind. I often sleep in a tent just down from the hilltop medicine wheel, and seek no partner. I really do have the sun in the morning and the moon at night. Life is difficult sometimes but very very good. I have been able to live freely and mak my music and art. I am a survivor of a very unfortunate and violent past rife with abuse, but am still richly blessed with a lot of love in my life, a family and a few very good friends, and though I am in a wheelchair most of the time these days, reasonably good health so far. Enough about me. Pen and Ink by Tim Andries. Untitled Pen and Ink by Tim Andries Here's something we need to understand about who we call 'Nature' :When we think about it, it's a sweeping generalization to knock " NATURE". We ARE nature, and we can determine our own to a great extent. How can we not see that We have a Mother who honors each species right to determine who they will be, being the Goddess of Freedom that she is, and a large number of the people I know have chosen to express Nature in the face of tragedy and stupidity by being kind , helpful and brave .That's what I hope to do. That's the beauty of Nature. A butterfly makes no sense; it is vulnerable and lives to dance in the air and show off it's beautiful wings, even though this makes it more easily eaten by the bird. Nature red in tooth and claw, yes, but there is more to it than that, and even that kind of death may be better than dying in a hospital. Nature is change, too.Let's change back to avoiding fear and panic from indulging in it. It is counter-productive. Nuremberg Principles From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia : The Nuremberg Principles were a set of guidelines for determining what constitutes a war crime. The document was created by necessity during the Nuremberg Trials of Nazi party members following World War II. Under UN General Assembly Resolution 177 (II), paragraph (a), the International Law Commission was directed to "formulate the principles of international law recognized in the Charter of the Nuremberg Tribunal and in the judgment of the Tribunal." In the course of the consideration of this subject, the question arose as to whether or not the Commission should ascertain to what extent the principles contained in the Charter and judgment constituted principles of international law. The conclusion was that since the Nuremberg Principles had been affirmed by the General Assembly, the task entrusted to the Commission was not to express any appreciation of these principles as principles of international law but merely to formulate them. The text below was adopted by the Commission at its second session. The Report of the Commission also contains commentaries on the principles (see Yearbook of the Intemational Law Commission, 1950, Vol. II, pp. 374-378).[1] The guidelines are as follows: Contents [hide] 1 Principle I 2 Principle II 3 Principle III 4 Principle IV 5 Principle V 6 Principle VI 7 Principle VII 8 See also 9 References 10 Further reading 11 Footnotes [edit] Principle I Any person who commits an act which constitutes a crime under international law is responsible therefore and liable to punishment. [edit] Principle II The fact that internal law does not impose a penalty for an act which constitutes a crime under international law does not relieve the person who committed the act from responsibility under international law. [edit] Principle III The fact that a person who committed an act which constitutes a crime under international law acted as Head of State or responsible government official does not relieve him from responsibility under international law. [edit] Principle IV The fact that a person acted pursuant to order of his Government or of a superior does not relieve him from responsibility under international law, provided a moral choice was in fact possible to him. [edit] Principle V Any person charged with a crime under international law has the right to a fair trial on the facts and law. [edit] Principle VI The crimes hereinafter set out are punishable as crimes under international law: (a) Crimes against peace: (i) Planning, preparation, initiation or waging of a war of aggression or a war in violation of international treaties, agreements or assurances; (ii) Participation in a common plan or conspiracy for the accomplishment of any of the acts mentioned under (i).
