"As you all know I have been struggling to find a way to earn money to hopefully buy my Grandpas house from my parent's someday.. But, I also want to be able to pay them back for their generosity paying off my medical bills, and other things.. But, I can not seem to get my foot in the door to a paying job no matter how hard I try.. Transportation issues is a large part of it.. The other part is is injuries.. But I refuse to be labeled disabled and I do not want to end up in government ran programs to support myself.. So I been trying my hardest to make sales on here.. But that is not going so well I earned 11 cents from one sale total this entire year.. "

But I am still not happy with them not telling me they changed their policy to charge us money if we were not making sales.. So 20$ earned through 80$ worth of sales.. Basically went to nothing.. By the time I covered withdraw and banking fees I would have been left with one dollar after it all. So I have been very unhappy with what happened to me through that store in the end. .. If my sales ever pick up I will Also sell my items on lulu and amazon later on.. My books and chants mainly.. and my graphics in my stores I may sell as prints eventually. But they will end up as colleges since the prints are not as clear in definition as I wish since most of those photos were taking when a mini innovage digital camera, the rest I drew on paint or bitmap image.. then saved into a jpeg or gif., before I put them up on a store.. So the drawings took quite a bit of time to do.

I hope and pray my sales pick up soon. I also hope to get caught up in everything so I can add more items to the stores..  and Get on with writing my new books.

My Group and I call it RAIL REAL ACTION IN LOVE! ... OZZY RAIL AGAINST THEM! TAKE REAL ACTION IN LOVE! .. And sue them for abusing your group's song. All of Ozzys Fans ought to join the opposing groups and help block these people from protesting and harassing people the more people that peacefully stand between them and the target the less effect and hurt they will cause! Also every individual that this group harasses ought to press charges, and file restraining orders. That will also help in the long run. ie ie Ie LOVE the Crazy Train! and I love Ozzy! May the Spirit of Crazy Train blow right through their wall of hate, and leave it burning on it's tracks to dust!"

"If you are on facebook feel free to add me as Casey Heinzism to your friends list, and add like the DNatureofDTrain fan page.. I consider this a special post sorry I have fallen so far behind in posting I been healing from minor injuries from a fight I got into when a man grabbed my wrist and tried to pull me into the basement last week.. I am hoping to resume normal posting as time goes on I am okay just sore and have a small lump on my wrist, so I am working hard to get caught up as well as not to overdue and further irritate my sore wrist." - DNatureofDTrain


"I am all for freedom of speech and protest.. But there is just certain things and places you never do or go to for your protests. Crashing anyones funeral is wrong, Harassing and getting into the faces of anyone who is greiving over the loss of a family member who just died is downright wrong let alone.. picketing a funeral in this manner.. You can hate people, and still be enemies and show eachother high honor and respect, as Jesus taught us to do in LOVE for one another. Does not mean you have to love them as your friends. LOVE your enemies. 

It is not and never will be right. The Phelps family is just as bad as the Terry Jones idiot who thought it was cute to burn the Qu'ran, and mislead the media into all the lies about the supposed New York City victory mosque built on ground zero. These Extremists nuts are getting away with harassing people FAR to much and often. Freedom of speech is one thing. But crashing another's sacred rite and claiming to be a church Is and always will be AGAINST G-D!.. We need to bring back the universal way of treating others as we wanted to be treated, Living life, in respect and love as best as we can. Not giving into the low blow ways of these seriously sick people." - DNatureofDTrain
