Whoa Nelly, grab a Big Cat by the tail to stop the spin... take a humongous breath, my darling-est KitKats... wow, woooweee, these times are smacking most of us around, certainly the Kougaress... she’s doing her darndest to hold on, and grip with her claws... cause, the tornado it’s here and more giant twisters are on the way... yeah, it’s Dorothy time as in the Wizard of Oz... for a whole lot of us.
Here’s a look at the original meaning of the book ~ oh yeah, OZ is ounces as in gold and silver ounces, or ‘oz’.
THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ

A MONEY REFORM PARABLE
Alistair McConnachie writes
Prosperity, January 2001
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum (Chicago, 1900) is a parable about Money Reform and the 1890s Midwestern political movement led by William Jennings Bryan (1860-1925); three times candidate for President of the United States. From 1891-1895 Bryan served in the House of Representatives, where he advocated the coinage of silver at a fixed ratio with gold, in order to break the bankers' monopoly and manipulation of the gold-backed currency.
So... here we are in essentially the same horrific economic mess that occurred in the 1890s and in the 1930s. What’s the answer? The basics are all in the story. We, the People, need to take our money back. Dorothy took her power back. And, she took it back to Kansas.
Money is actually silver and gold. It is not paper. It is not Federal Reserve Notes, or what is labeled as a dollar bill. That is, according to our US Constitution.
No, this Big Cat is not advocating a gold and silver standard. And, gold and silver coins are all well and good, to a certain extent. No, we, within our communities, must decide on how we accomplish commerce among ourselves. Barter, trading work for work. Coinage. Perhaps, establishing our own banks that provide debt-free currency.
Since taxation is always the power to destroy an individual, a community, or a state, and a nation, if we the people do not eliminate it, then our hard work, our labors, *we* will remain enslaved to the Global Banksters.
Ask yourselves: why should our elected government have to *borrow* from the Federal Reserve at a usury interest rate? Why can’t we, as a nation, simply print our own currency?
Then ask yourselves, why were President Abraham Lincoln and President John F. Kennedy assassinated? Both men had this in common. President Lincoln created ‘greenbacks’ to finance the war, or a government-printed currency. This was an end around the global banksters of his time.
President Kennedy desired a true Camelot for all of us Americans. One way he intended to accomplish this was by an end-around the Federal Reserve [which is neither federal, nor a reserve, but a privately-owned corporation]. Here’s a portion from an article which says it far better than this Big Cat can explain it ~
President Kennedy, the Federal Reserve
and Executive Order 11110
by Cedric X.
On June 4, 1963, a little known attempt was made to strip the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the government at interest. On that day President John F. Kennedy signed Executive Order No. 11110 that returned to the U.S. government the power to issue currency, without going through the Federal Reserve. Mr. Kennedy's order gave the Treasury the power "to issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver dollars in the Treasury." This meant that for every ounce of silver in the U.S. Treasury's vault, the government could introduce new money into circulation. In all, Kennedy brought nearly $4.3 billion in U.S. notes into circulation. The ramifications of this bill are enormous.
With the stroke of a pen, Mr. Kennedy was on his way to putting the Federal Reserve Bank of New York out of business. If enough of these silver certificates were to come into circulation they would have eliminated the demand for Federal Reserve notes. This is because the silver certificates are backed by silver and the Federal Reserve notes are not backed by anything. Executive Order 11110 could have prevented the national debt from reaching its current level, because it would have given the government the ability to repay its debt without going to the Federal Reserve and being charged interest in order to create the new money. Executive Order 11110 gave the U.S. the ability to create its own money backed by silver.
After Mr. Kennedy was assassinated just five months later, no more silver certificates were issued. The Final Call has learned that the Executive Order was never repealed by any U.S. President through an Executive Order and is still valid.

So, Dorothy followed the yellow brick or golden brick road and reclaimed her silver slippers. She reclaimed her life and her prosperity. Gee, now there’s a great moral to a story. It makes the Kougar want to pen her own version. Sadly, though, time is not on her side.
Further note: Moi does not favor silver slippers over ruby slippers as far as her choice in footwear. Actually, she would adore a pair of ruby slippers, a pair of silver slippers and a pair of golden slippers. She’s a glitter Cat girl, at times.

Sultry Sunday- An Erotica Cult Following
by Dawne Prochilo
Recently while discussing favorite authors with acquaintances- I mentioned some names that are familiar to me- they stared blankly at me.
On July 11-12, the New Moon in Cancer is also a powerful total Solar Eclipse and it will make for at time of heightened awareness for all of us.
Although, this eclipse is total, it will not be seen by many people since its pathway lies over the South Pacific Ocean and will be visible only in places like Cook Islands, Easter Island and several isolated atolls. However, it is predicted to have very intense, interesting as well as profound energies that will impact all of us!
During a solar eclipse, the Moon is positioned in between the Sun and Earth, cutting off the light of the Sun. A solar eclipse always occurs during a New Moon and is considered to denote the start or beginning of something new in our lives. Eclipses challenge us to develop our lives in some way. We can turn our backs on the hints from the universe, but that usually means in a few day's or week's time we may end up having to make changes which are forced on us.
This solar eclipse New Moon in Cancer makes aspects to Neptune and to Mars, just as Mars begins to close in on Saturn in the last decant of Virgo. Saturn itself is less than a degree away from its entrance into Libra, where it will form an almost perfect square with Pluto, and where we will experience the most potent expression yet of its ongoing opposition to Uranus.
This particular eclipse is in a series that we have experienced before in 1991-1992, so if we look back to those years, we may get a hint of what needs to be given a shakeup in our lives. It may bring to a successful conclusion a situation which has been bothering some of us for a while. Don't worry if initially things seem worse, since you'll then turn a corner into better times ahead.
What is vital is that we get our heads and our hearts together and really focus. A solar eclipse occurs when the Sun and the Moon are together as seen from Earth in an especially sensitive zone. So we need to have our yin and yang in balance. What we want needs to be in alliance with what we should be doing. If we can focus, and act from our core center using all our energies, then the results will follow.
As a general rule, we feel the impact of eclipses in the areas that are governed by the sign or sector of the zodiac that the eclipse occurs in. This solar eclipse is in Cancer so all things Cancerian will be in focus. On a personal level, solar eclipses can have a major impact, if it occurs in conjunction with one of our natal planets. So be especially careful if your Sun sign, Moon sign or Ascendant is in Cancer. Where the eclipse falls in the chart is significant, as the energies expressed by its house placement will show the areas of life that are affected by the new beginning that is implied.

Happy Courtship on another Earth
X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...
Part 560 ~
Sylva shouted, “Summer 2010!” Seconds later, she slumped back down onto the bed. Dread seized her, and she asked, “Is it still 2009 here?” Again that strange silence enveloped her. She waited, her patience strained. ‘Yes. It was necessary to show you the future,’ the angelic voice answered. ‘The future of this Earth realm depends on that knowledge.’ Sylva scrunched her brow hard as she attempted to put the puzzle pieces together. “If this is still 2009 here, what about the plasma bomb?” Something delicate as feathers brushed the side of her face. ‘Return your mind to your Zeke. Guide him.’
Zeke pondered fast. “Your talking about a gradual release of energy.” Jamison gave a nod. “We’ll do a careful investigation and assessment. Find out if a gradual release is possible. If it is, then the sea and Earth will absorb the bomb’s energy. There will be geological consequences, no doubt,” Jamison forestalled Zeke’s question. “But far less consequence than an explosion,” Zeke continued. “If we can find an imbalance in our Earth, there’s a slim chance we can direct the bomb’s force there,” his dad offered. “There’s a natural grid line through Mexico City. It could alleviate future volcanic activity.”

Did you know a *secret treaty*, global in nature, and being done through the UN [United Nations], is in the process of being brought about, and may even be signed. This treaty would mean TOTAL CONTROL OVER THE INTERNET via the FCC and what has been called Internet II, here in the USA. It means taxes and utter spying tyranny [Big Brother] over what you can and cannot do on the Internet. And, yes, the changes would be probably be *incremental*. Unless, there is a world war, and THEY can justify immediate seizure, and immediate take over.
