Recently, I had an email from my (one and only) Montana congressman, Denny Rehberg. I signed up for his email newsletter because I like to respond to his polls and then add comments like: "hell has a special place for you." (Not that I believe in hell...)
He was boasting -- BOASTING -- about his success in defunding the Health Care Law.  This after I had written, begging him to reconsider his position because it would mean that I have no hope. This, on the same evening that I received thousands of dollars in medical bills in the mail because I have no insurance since becoming unemployed.  I had assured him that none of my family or friends would ever consider voting for him in his run for U.S. Senate unless he changed his position.  The original reply to my email was, "Thank you for your input."  And then I received this horrible, boastful piece of email trash that wounded me so badly that my head throbbed and my vision blurred and I thought I might pass out.  He claimed he was doing the bidding of the American people (which ones, exactly, because I am beginning to wonder if he actually knows any). To brag about the harm he had just wrought made me wonder if my crazy brother-in-law is right and Rehberg is not a human at all, but rather some lizard-creature from outer space.  
The threefold law is my only consolation.  He will receive threefold what he has perpetrated.  In my imagination this involves things like David-Copperfield-ish poverty along with wicked and icky boil-ish diseases that eat his flesh.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    karma is not instant, after all, and the Threefold Law works on its own calendar -- one that's often substantially longer than a human lifespan.
    We only know that the soul that currently calls itself Denny Rehberg will, sooner or later, will get his due. But bear in mind that "reward" comes in ways we don't easily recognize. Bad energy put out stays around the person. They walk around literally bathing in the negativity that comes out of them. That may not give them boils, or affect their bank account. But their evolution as an enlightened entity, the spiritual doors that are open to them, even how much joy and love they find beyond the pure, base material existance . . . these are all effects, too. Scrooge wasn't exactly singing and dancing before the sprits came, you know.
    Just as the good that comes to the good isn't always measurable in dollars, can't always be seen with the naked eye, so is the bad that comes to the bad. It's an article of faith, and we just have to keep faith on it.

    There comes a time when every team must learn to make individual sacrifices.

    an ugly email, I would have no problem invoking whatever power there is out there, to teach him the lessons of hubris. As I have said, I am no passive Witch. Harm me, I will harm you right back, it's self-defense.

    Am I a "good witch"? or a 'bad witch?

    It depends on how angry you make me.

      it is awfully tempting to wish bad things on power-brokers who are literally killing people.  And I don't ever hear any of them talking about how there are people now whose option is death.

        it is neither good nor bad, and if I am harmed, I will exact a penalty. The Universe is not "loving" it is cold and unfeeling. When you deny the duality of your deities, you strip them of meaning.  The "Threefold Law" is recent. Magickally, it's history begins in 1949. Prior to that? nothing. Its intent is to make you, the "spell-caster" that you are absolutely certain that what you are doing is right. No hesitation. No second thoughts , no remorse once the spell is cast. It is to make you think long and hard before you cast. If you have to be reminded, well....

        They don't talk, because they don't give shit, and if they do, it's in terms of "money saved".  Their piety is wrapped in gold from other mens pockets. They believe these are "End Times" so screw the "Hard Times" everyone else is experiencing. They believe in an 19th century American Christian fallacy called The Rapture and as each "End of the World" prophecy passes, they cut their false prophets slack and continue on.

        Money is energy. Those that know how to use its energy use it for good and ill. Yet we begrudge ALL who have money. Why shouldn't I use my talents to move up? Even the "overearners" are "underearners" in some facet of their lives. They made choices.
