Remembering Who We Are, we remember what to Honor

Posted on Updated on

All my uncles were Veterans. My Dad, of both WWII and Korea. All said, wars change those who fight them.

I say, corporations have now changed War, so only the funeral homes and they win them.

Still as a Veteran who sang his way through wartime with The Soldiers Chorus of the Army Field Band, I bow before and salute all Veterans who have sacrificed their blood, body parts, time with loved ones and life here on earth, for they are the best among us.

I ask only that as we honor those who sacrificed for America, let us also honor the equality, justice and freedom for which they fought for ALL Americans, regardless of political, racial, religious or sexual persuasion, in particular for those who gave them life: women!

For American women, human rights are impossible without Equal Rights.

The Equal Rights Amendment needs three States, unbiased Legislators and the all American crowd to become Law in “The Land of the Free.”

“Is Anybody there?” “Does Anybody Care?” “Does Anybody See What I See?!?”

Please share to show your support, and embrace the power of the crowd.

Thank You.

Embracing the Power of The Crowd

Posted on Updated on

Consider the Arab Spring, Egyptian elections, deadly Syrian streets and Iranian inspections; Consider the non-collapse of Murdoch & Rush but Lieutenants entombed, evaporating sponsors and exposed tarnished occupational brands;Consider how low the low will go to dilute “United We Stand” and embrace the power of the crowd.

Consider FB’s limitless greed, groups and petitions, LinkedIn discussions, Klout of Stumbleupon and Tweets all atwitter preaching to the choir; consider the disunity of ‘so many causes, so little time,’ vs. the reality of only one war over money; Consider rebirth of “Out of Many, One” and embrace the power of the crowd.

Consider the numbers: theirs in dollars, ours in souls; Consider friends, relatives and frienemies all citizens of the 99%; Consider “job creation” is not a product of political party or trickle down corporate thinking, and only a bit of small business and government intervention; Consider ‘We the Customers & Shoppers:’ are the magic that creates the jobs, then embrace all of “We the People” as the power of the crowd.

Consider the recession driven Greek & American link to Bank of America, CITI and Wells Fargo bound by Bush League and embrace the crowd who pushes SEC investigation of past transgressions, present JPMorgan Chase losses and future Goldman Sachs & Morgan Stanley insider selloffs; Consider we are a people treading and trading in a red sea of nation drowning lies, and embrace the power of the crowd, before we disappear before our eyes.

Consider Romney Trump chain and claim we expected Obama’s almighty reversal of corporate induced tragedy, blinded by Oprah’s tears our fears hoping out loud, we bowed out feeling unneeded, unheeded and having done what’s needed; Consider a President juggling dozens of balls way over our heads, easily doubling as White House Correspondents’ Dinner “Stand Up’ while ordering century’s most important hit before bed.

Consider our choices: cut taxes for rich using debt ceiling as Capone bat, or end our Left Right civil war with peaceful revolution, embracing the power of the crowd as best solution.

Consider when Left, Right and Center begin working on that which we can agree, we’ll rehearse the process for future work on that which we are strongly opposed, and embrace the power of the crowd.

Consider “A House Divided Against Itself Cannot Stand,” and pledge to amend our laws with lawmakers favoring feminine equality, voting rights without picture ID suppression and an end to bullying everywhere — embracing the power of the crowd to forbear.

Consider the power of humanity in silent parade through the streets, into the dens of those who would make us obsolete and embrace the power of the crowd to unseat:

# convincing employees of offending corporations to strike on the first Friday of each month, or at least walkout as the 99% parade encircles their building

# refusing every Wednesday to buy gasoline anywhere

# Social network announcing and holding Town Halls two Thursdays a month in a corporate lobby, entrance way or parking garage entrance

# using peaceful protesting rallies for voter registration, picture ID assistance and ex-felon rights restoration

# boycotting Corporation and financial institutions that caused our 2008 economic collapse

# embracing crowd power of Tea Party, Churches/Synagogues/Mosques, Moderates, Independents, Women, No Labels, Progressive Democrats of America, all races, Occupy and LGBT

# invading the halls and offices of Congress with monthly visits

# continuing money transfers from corrupted banks to Community Credit Unions

# once a week peacefully encircling offending corporation’s regional HQs withpeaceful marches for justice”

And embrace the power of the 99% crowd.
