Jesse Jackson and John McCain,2933,379901,00.html

Jesse Jackson recently cried ‘I’m sorry’ for calling Barack Obama ‘a nut case’ and using the N-word. Presidential hopeful John McCain had a few salacious and untrue words to say about Obama and McCain immediately wept, ‘Mea culpa; I apologize for the lies I told about Barack Obama’. There seems to be a gut-check referendum on people of stature calling out other well-known folks and then back-tracking faster than a hot fudge sundae can melt. What’s up? These half-truth pinheads didn’t have a momma hen like ma mere else they wouldn’t have lived to have to apologize, but then I grew up when folks still had manners. They have been gone with the wind since movie stars became royalty and the Clintons came into power in Washington.

Like my late and great best friend, Texas hooter and hollerer, Darrell Mae Harris used to say about an obnoxious blowhard hayseed, “He let his humming bird mouth overload his elephantine a--,” and I agree with her. We are living in such torturous times, with oil escalating, stocks tanking, sub-prime wrecking, terrorism threatening, and most of all, we are facing all the bullshit that we created and it ain’t fun and it’s causing us all to look to blame and shame anybody else in order to get the blame off Mame or us. And it is my learned opinion that it is this blame game that is causing otherwise decent testosterone and hormone ilk and types to call out someone in the public eye who may or may not be guilty of the name calling.

When I get up every morning and look in the mirror I say, “Okay, buster; face the day and see what mess of your own making you are going to have to clean up today.” I never, ever, ever say that the government is trying to break the bank—clean me out. I refuse to blame oil prices on my economic woes. I can always drive less. Bicycle. Walk. Stay home. And I cannot in good conscience throw brick bats at the Stock Market when everybody knows that it is the same as gambling in Las Vegas. I know a lot of wealthy people who like to crow how smart and rich they are when the market escalator goes up, up, up, and they snarl and blame and spread toxic thought impressions when the escalator goes to the bottom. If anyone is still reading this article just know that we have all been living in la-la land about the good times. And if I hear one more person tell me how good the times were when Bill Clinton was president, I am going to sentence them to a long and boring but honest course in Astrology 101. Hillbilly Bill inherited the folderol and fakery of a false economy built around smoke and mirrors rather than having done anything to make the good times roll.

To be true to why all famous faces have been getting in deep do-do lately for saying the darndest things about other big pieces of stuff can be chalked up to the faster-than-the- speed-of-light info-world of the internet and more specifically blogdom. And in the spirit of fair and balanced may I say that a lot of reportage consists of 10-second sound bites and images that do not tell a true story.

Having written what I have written, I am reminded of what the Divine Miss M, Bette Midler, said to a heckler once in a stadium in Cleveland, “Shut your hole, honey, mine’s making money”.



He is AUTHOR OF Clearing for the Millennium, �Signs and Wonders-Understanding the language of God and You're Not Who You Think You Are-A Breakthrough Guide to Discover your Authentic Self will be published by Atria Books, a division of Simon & Schuster in December of this year.

A member of the National Association of Transpersonal Psychology and the American Federation of Astrologers, Gaulden founded the Sedona Intensive, a personal growth and empowerment program, to help clients retrieve their authentic selves and tap into their inner power.

Gaulden coined the term astroanalysis-a combination of Jungian psychology and astrology-to describe how he helps free clients from compulsions, addictions, and unresolved issues, which keep them from living a life of peace and joy.

Albert saw things others didn't and heard what they couldn't from the age of two. When he was five he asked his mother why she seemed more like his dad and his dad more like the mother. As a pre-schooler he was tuned into the rich world of intuition and past lives even though he had no one to shepherd him through these recollections and recalls. At Birmingham-Southern he click connected with the unique psychological work and world of Swiss psychoanalyst, Dr. Carl Jung and his take on the shadow self. Gaulden believes that all-seeing and all-knowing is born within a child and it is the false and mundane world that erases his memory of what is really true. The integration of the divided self, putting one back together through a conscious fusion with his or her shadow is the underpinning of his work in the Sedona Intensive.

Albert studied with renowned astrology Byrd Knapp, Darrell Harris and Katharine de Jersey, as well as took Awareness Classes with Lee Jones at the Spiritualist Church in Los Angeles in the 70's, and attended the Corrado Academy of Perception in 1978 which led to his meeting actor John Travolta using the tools of manifestation learned at the Academy, and selling John El Adobe de Tajiguas, a 35-acre estate that abutted Ronald Reagan's ranch near Gaviota Beach in Southern California.

Gaulden worked in 1986 with international-best selling author of The Celestine Prophecy, James Redfield in Albert's innovative and one-of-a-kind personal empowerment program, the Sedona Intensive, which he founded in 1982. Albert was hired to use his gifts as an astro-intuitive to help cast Redfield's movie of The Celestine Prophecy.

Gaulden travels the world to teach and speak and finds Egypt particularly one of the most intriguing countries in the world. In December he will be returning with a tour group of clients and friends to the Land of the Nile and Pharaohs and the Great Pyramid of Cheops, the Sphinx and other ancient digs and monuments in Upper and Lower Egypt.

His clients include sports figures, actors, royalty, Wall Street executives, men and women and young people from all walks of life who are eager to face those defects of character that keep them from being who they really are. He rigorously maintains the anonymity of his clients.

Additionally, Gaulden is a motivational speaker on such popular themes as "Mr. Right is Usually Mr. Wrong-Falling in Love With Make-Believe", "Take Your Power Back", "The Power of a Great Idea", the Death of Terror and the Rebirth of Bliss, �"Why Relationships Don't Work but How They Can" and many other provocative topics.
