A Snapshot of Former President Jimmy Carter's Views on Russia, The Ukraine and The United States of America...

by Dan Getz, International Blogger
www.danCE4ONE.blogspot.com
Reporting from Parkland Health & Hospital System, Dallas, TX

This article was actually written about a week ago with regard to a LIVE INTERVIEW between former President Jimmy Carter and David Letterman on the David Letterman Show.

I had the privilege tonight of watching and listening to the interview of former United States of America's President, Jimmy Carter by David Letterman.

Many times, the greatest men with the greatest minds are not recognized as such until after their death. Fortunately tonight, the World was able to join the United States of America in hearing and seeing such a man, while he is still very much ALIVE and not during a eulogy at his funeral some day.

As discussed during their conversation, Jimmy Carter is one of 38 living family members; is 93 years old; has 21 grandchildren (including 12 grandchildren and 9 GREAT grandchildren, one of which is ahead in the polls for becoming the next Governor of Georgia).

Similar to Russia's current invasion of The Ukraine, over the Christmas Weekend of 1979 Russia attempted to invade Afghanistan.  According to Mr. Carter, and while he was in office, economic sanctions implemented by the United States were very effective in causing Russian leadership to change their minds and position, and ultimately withdraw their troops from Afganistan.  Regardless of sanctions or the declared position of the United States and G-7 committee, it is Jimmy Carter's opinion that the invasion of Crimea (part of the Ukraine) was inevitable, and should Putin choose to stop there and not continue his agression, occupation and invasion of the remainder of the Ukraine, there will be no need for any further sanctions, including the existing sanctions in place (which currently only includes freezing the assets of several key Russian leaders).

In a nutshell, THAT is Jimmy Carter's snapshot view of Russia and The Ukraine.

The remainder of Letterman's and Carter's conversation centered around the United States, specifically the abuse and murder of WOMEN, the need to actively CONSERVE ENERGY and NATURAL RESOURCES and to ensure that CLEAN and SAFE drinking water is available to EVERY human being on the EARTH today.

In 1979, then President Jimmy Carter, had 36 solar panels installed on the Oval Office of the White House in an effort to conserve energy and bring awareness of the need to duplicate these efforts, first in our Nation, and then the World.  Upon his subsequent loss in the Presidential Race to United State's President Ronald Reagan, these panels were removed by Reagan, in an effort to avoid the admission that the United States, primarily, and the World secondarily, has been and is the greatest contributor to the waste of Natural Resources, primarily Petroleum, and according to former President Jimmy Carter.

With regard to concentrated efforts to conserve energy and our earth's natural resources, Jimmy Carter believes that Global Warming is a legitimate threat and stated that former President George H.W. Bush was a "Champion of Saving Energy."  Jimmy Carter has recently published a book entitled, "A Call for Action: Women, Religion, Violence and Power" (see http://www.amazon.com/Call-Action-Women-Religion-Violence/dp/1476773955/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1396366443&sr=8-1&keywords=a+call+for+action) which addresses, and provides solutions for issues like this, the abuse of women and a number of other current issues and injustices.

During tonight's interview, Jimmy Carter started with the most dramatic statistic he was aware of, with regard to the systematic and wide-spread abuse of females:  160 MILLION girls are missing, have been aborted, or are murdered shortly after their birth by parents who wanted a boy rather than a girl.  Carter visits China every year to discuss this issue and others with the government of China in an effort to dramatically reduce this statistic as China has for decades enforced a policy of significantly limiting the birth of females by Chinese citizens.  This policy has so significantly reduced the birth of females that there is currently a very large shortage of woman for men to marry, which according to Carter largely contributes to the sex and slave trade, since many men then choose to buy a bride because they are unable to find one on their own.

I learned something tonight that I was never made aware of before this interview between Jimmy Carter and David Letterman.  Atlanta, Georgia is currently the primary center of the sex trade, due in large part to the fact that Atlanta is home to one of the World's largest airports.  According to statistics Carter made his audience aware of tonight, an average pimp can make, on average, about $20,000 (USD) per prostitute that he "manages", while the purchase of a girl or woman on the black market ranges from around $1,000 (USD) to $8,000 (USD).

According to additional statistics that Jimmy Carter cited, Colleges, Universities and The United States Military are the primary culprit in the abuse of women within the United States.  The reason Carter gave for this is because, according to Carter and his humanitarian foundation (see The Carter Center at: http://www.cartercenter.org/index.html), all these entities are "all about" protecting their own reputation and financial assets, rather than pursuing justice and vindication for all the women that are regularly raped and abused at Colleges and University campuses as well as at many of the United States' Military bases.  Again, according to Carter, only 4% of rapes that occur every year at Colleges and Universities are ever reported, and only 1/6 of this statistic (i.e. 1/6 of 4%) with regard to the rapes and incidents of female abuse  that occur within the United States Military are reported.  Successful prosecution of these cases that are reported occurs much less than that.  Prior to serving our country in the capacity of the President of the United States of America, Jimmy Carter served as a Naval Commanding Officer in the United States Military so knows first hand of not only the abuse he and his organization has been bringing awareness to for many years, but is a determined, dedicated and strong advocate for the victims of this abuse.

One of the most shocking statistics I heard former President Jimmy Carter disclose was this:  90% of all Egyptian girls have their genitals forcibly removed or cut before they are 4 years old for the sole purpose of preventing women from enjoying sexual intercourse.  This statistic jumps another 5% to 95% in the country of Sudan.

The last topic that Jimmy Carter and David Letterman discussed was the direct result of stagnant, polluted and unsafe drinking water.  It is called the Guinea Worm (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dracunculiasis), which grows up to 30 inches long inside a person's stomach when they consume water of this type.  When Jimmy Carter and his foundation began their efforts in bringing awareness to, and actively combating this issue, there were 3 1/2 million known cases in at least 20 different countries.  Today that number, primarily due to the efforts of Jimmy Carter and others who have listened to, and joined this cause, has been reduced to 146 cases in a handful of different countries.

To learn more details about these issues and other cases, causes and solutions for INJUSTICE be sure to visit www.Amazon.com and purchase Jimmy Carter's brand new book entitled, "A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence and Power." (see http://www.amazon.com/Call-Action-Women-Religion-Violence/dp/1476773955/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1396366443&sr=8-1&keywords=a+call+for+action)

THIS is WHO i am...

"FOLLOW me on FACEBOOK...Because this is WHO i am...https://t.co/azoxoGnL6b AND http://t.co/rDKWK0cGY1 (Password to VIEW is DAILYBREAD)." was tweeted from @Dance4ONE a few moments ago.

I have been inspired by MANY throughout this JOURNEY called LIFE...Pink, through her song entitled "TRY" was the primary inspiration of TRYING...Dan Getz...the BRAND NEW Vimeo Video Shot, Edited and Produced by The Arrington Group in Dallas, TX [http://t.co/rDKWK0cGY1 (Password to VIEW is DAILYBREAD)].

LIBERY WALK by Miley Cyrus has inspired me many times to step out well beyond the societal "norms"...

Taylor Swift continues to amaze and inspire me through her multiple genres of music (country, hip-hop, rock, etc.) and multi-directional facets of art and creativity (clothing and perfume lines, movies, TV, music, etc.).

My friend Tina, lead singer for Deaf Angel, has inspired me EVERY time I listen to her song entitled "Directions" from their newest album "Brutally Beautiful" (http://www.reverbnation.com/play_now/song_18160355).

But today, Henry David Thorough inspired me to BELIEVE and STEP OUT again through this quote of his..."Go CONFIDENTIALLY in the DIRECTION of your DREAMS. LIVE the LIFE you have IMAGINED."

There are MANY, MANY more people that have lead me to this place of CONFIDENT CONTENTMENT in FINALLY knowing WHO i REALLY am...and I am truly grateful...particularly for the ones...the family members...the fairweather "friends"...the back stabbers... who made my life a LIVING HELL...through your mis-judgements, sarcasm, mockery, and painful rejection of who i am, time and time again...For without you I could not have possibly realized how stuck and hopeless and directionless I had become in my mundane and ridiculously hilarious conformity and co-dependence on what SOCIETY...through YOU... thought was best for me.

But I choose to LOOK FORWARD, and NOT look BACK...and to focus on the TRUE friends who have TAUGHT me to truly LIVE...Thank you and May God richly bless YOU for loving me, and leading me to the LIGHT at the end of a VERY DARK and PAINFUL Tunnel...

Dance4ONE demands JUSTICE...UNJUST Hard-Line Wal-Mart Managers Hold to Corporate Policy DEMANDING Customer Wait 9 Hours for Refund

by Dan Getz, Blogger for
www.Dance4One.blogspot.com
Reporting from Rowlett, TX,
October 7, 2013 at 1:00 pm CST

Until the prophetic "LET" declared in Amos 5:24 COMPLETELY REPLACES the "UNTIL" aptly and intuitively spoken by Martin Luther King, Jr. when he said on August 28, 1963, "Until Justice Rolls Like the Waters...and Righteousness Like the Mighty Stream..." Injustice will REMAIN INDEFINITELY. This is precisely the reason that Wal-Mart continues to struggle through a mryiad of problems and...INJUSTICE. 
Take for instance the fact brought to the surface by the Occupy Movement/ through it's 99% vs. the 1% campaign...that the CEO of Wal-Mart (Michael Duke) makes more in ONE hour than the aveage Wal-Mart worker will make in an ENTIRE year...or $16,826.92 per hour, vs. $8.75 per hour (see http://abcnews.go.com/Business/walmart-ceo-pay-hour-workers-year/story?id=11067470).  Liberty and Justice for ALL???  I think NOT.  Give me LIBERTY or Give me DEATH?  Perhaps.

Today, yet again, INJUSTICE "wagged it's ugly head" at a Wal-Mart located in Dallas, TX.(or more precisely, the store located at 3155 W. Wheatland Road, Dallas, TX 75237 which can be contacted at 972-709-1400).  A customer who visited this particular store for the first time this morning, has been a loyal customer of Wal-Mart for several decades, but wished to remain anonymous, stated the following to Dance4ONE:

"At approximately 11:30 pm yesterday evening I made about a $15.00 purchase at the Wal-Mart located between Highway 67 and Interstate 20 on Wheatland.  The only reason I was at this particular Wal-Mart was that in order to arrive at a new job assignment in Cedar Hill at 5:00 a.m. today I had to catch the D.A.R.T. Blue Line and Bus Route 466 prior to midnight the night before and then catch a taxi early the next morning (i.e. today) to travel the remaining distance to my final destination...in other words, I was merely killing some time during an otherwise uneventful...and sleepless evening/early morning.

At approximately 3:00 a.m. when I contacted the taxi service to request a taxi and get a precise amount of what the fare would be, I quickly realized I was going to be about $10 short on the fare, and needed to return about $10 worth of merchandise so that I could pay the cab driver and arrive to my new job assignment on time...which would be 5:00 a.m.

Thinking that a customer should, and would be handled as such...a CUSTOMER, I was shocked when I was told that any return and refund could ONLY be done during ANY Wal-Mart's established Customer Service Hours, which happened to be 7 am to 10 pm at this particular location.  The Manager went on to reiterate, when bluntly asked, that 'Yes, even if a CUSTOMER made a purchase at 10:00 pm and promptly realized at 10:01 pm that he needed to return the merchandise he had just just purchased, he would HAVE to wait NINE HOURS...until 7 am the next morning to make the return and receive his or her refund.'    When I explained my situation in more detail, and that if I was not able to pay the taxi driver and arrive on my first day to my brand new job assignment I would most likely be fired, the Customer Service Manager (I believe her name was Elizabeth) was not only extremely rude and blunt in her tone, attitude and body posture, but was cold and firm in her position that 'It was logistically IMPOSSIBLE to issue a refund outside of this established company-wide policy dictating the ONLY TIMES refunds could be issued, not only at this particular store, but at ANY Wal-Mart store across the country.  When I finally was granted my request to speak to her boss and make the same, logical appeal to her, I was told exactly the same thing, except with more coldness, rudeness AND resolve NOT to serve the Customer...namely ME.

I ultimately got to my destination due to a kind-hearted and symathetic cab driver named 'Charles' with Yellow Cab who allowed me to short pay him for his service.  When I returned to the same Wal-Mart store this morning around 7:48 am (due to a communication issue between the agency I work for and the foreman of the company I was sent to whereby my assignment has been delayed a day) to return the merchandise for my refund (so that I could pay the bus fare for the return to my home), I was told by Customer Service Representative, "Shun" the TRUTH that 'Yes, it was a corporate policy to only issue refunds during the specified and established Customer Service Hours, BUT that exeptions COULD be made, particularly when dealing with situations where a CUSTOMER would be significantly and negatively impacted if an exception to this policy was NOT made.' 

Shun went on to say that were no logistical and/or equipment limitations (as both 'Elizabeth' and her boss adamantly stated) that would prevent this transaction from being made outside of the established Customer Service Hours, and that a MANUAL OVER-RIDE was not only possible, but very clearly should have been performed."

Dance4ONE would love to hear your input on this article.  Do you agree or disagree or do you have your own story or stories of INJUSTICE that NEED to be TOLD, either at a Wal-Mart or ANY other facet of society within the United States or...WORLD?  FACEBOOK MESSAGE either Dan Getz or Dance4One (Group or Page) and be sure to check US out at either of our two websites, www.Dance4One.blogspot.com and www.Dance4OneWarringStoragePawnStars.blogspot.com, YouTube Channel 1213!966dan, Twitter @Dance4One, LinkedIn (Dan Getz) or http://vimeo.com/7150425 (Recent Video PROFESSIONALLY Shot, Edited and Produced by the Arrington Group, and inspired, in part by Pink's TRY and entitled "TRYing...Dan Getz" and is MY STORY).

Ghana Ministry of Health Unable to Pay it's Nurses for Last FOUR months

by Dan Getz, International Blogger,
aka "The Dance'In Newz Boy,
Reporting from Rowlett, TX

Today, an undentified source, a nurse who currently lives and works in Ghana, stated, "...and for the past four months i have not seen any salary...this makes things much worst for me..."  When asked by Dance4One owner and blogger, Dan Getz, "Why are they not paying you?" the nurse replied, "...that is from the government...things are not good here as compare to that of your place or europe...things here are so different...". 

When further questioned, "How do you pay your rent and other obligations??", the unidentified nurse currently employed by the Ghana Ministry of Health stated, "...well i have been having problems with so many things...just trying to keep all this by myself...i am currently having problems with the owner of my apartment and my bills as well..."

This is not a new thing for Ghana.  In 2009, the Health Ministry of Ghana ordered the payment of nurses salaries that were five years in arrears.  Quoting directly from this article (http://www.ghanabusinessnews.com/2009/08/07/health-ministry-orders-payment-of-nurses%E2%80%99-salary-arrears/. ),
"Dr. George Sipa-Adjah Yankey, the Minister of Health, said it was pathetic that some nurses and other health workers had not received their salaries for the past five years." 

In a more recent article that confirms and explains the primary reason the Ghana Ministry of Health, or more accurately the HIPC (Heavily Indebted Poor Countries, see http://www.imf.org/external/pubs/ft/scr/2004/cr04209.pdf) fund  is unable to pay it's nurses, and multiple statutory funds (including the Health Fund, District Assemblies' Common Fund, and the Ghana Education Trust Fund (GETFund)), the writer stated today, September 18, 2013, that "Parliament will meet Finance Minister, Seth Terkper and officials from the Controller and Accountant General Department (CAGD) to discuss government's freeze on their HIPC accounts and its failure to make payments into various statutory funds." (see http://politics.myjoyonline.com/pages/news/201309/113364.php, posted TODAY, September 18, 2013 at 3:26 GMT).

This is a breaking news story.  As further details emerge, they can be seen here...at www.Dance4One.blogspot.com FIRST...where people in 124 countries and counting...roughly 3/5 of the WORLD, are reading and getting their NEWZ on politics, religion, education, history, and MORE...FIRST.

Kidd Kraddick...A Return to the HEARTBEAT of America

by Dan Getz, International Blogger
www.Dance4One.blogspot.com

My friend and colleague, Jessica Miller told me recently, "Write from your heart.  Write about what you do every day", after listening to me complain about a particular part of my business not panning out like I thought it would.  The last few days I have done exactly that, and there is a "flow" in my writing like I have never experienced before...at least not for a very, very long time.

It is now being reported that Kidd Kraddick died this past Saturday of a preventable and easily treatable heart disease, rather than the previously reported probable cause of death...a brain aneurism.

I am not here to past judgment or dwell on the fact that the "Kidd" should have done this or that.  Anthony Hopkins, playing a part in a thriller called "The Bear" made this statement about the "should haves" and shames of life when a man that ultimately "died of shame" kept dwelling on his mistakes and making statements like "I should have done this...or that": (paraphrased) "People, in the wilderness ultimately die of shame.  They start dwelling on their mistakes.  They  begin saying things like "I should have done this or that"...and ultimately they fail to do the ONE thing that could have saved them...THINK."

But Kidd Kraddick did NOT die in SHAME.  Did he make a mistake in not getting this checked on sooner? Maybe.  But the KIDD Lived his life in a way that was the polar opposite of shame.  He, at some point in his life, chose to BE and LIVE and RETURN TO the "Heartbeat of America"...an era about 50 or 60 years ago where people actually cared for and looked out for eachother...a time when Presidents like JRK and Civil Rights Activists like Martin Luther King, Jr. Dared to go against the grain, LIVE and go the extra mile or two to aid their fellow man...or woman...even to the point of laying down their own life.

Won't you join me in celebrating the LIFE of people like JRK, Martin Luther King Jr., Kidd Kraddick and countless other RENOWN and UNKNOWN individuals and groups of individuals who have taught US to LIVE through their LIVING, and the laying down of their own lives for US?  Do not let this simply be a fleeting moment decision or whim.  As NIKE has stated over and over through a VERY effective ad campaign...JUST DO IT.
