Month: September 2014

For centuries people, like pre-converted Constantine, Treaty of Versailles opportunist Adolf and oil stained Mushroom Cloud gang have used our fear to so stress us that our brain’s command center – its higher cognitive function – shuts down faster than Mitch Mad Hatter McConnell shuts down our government at a tea party.
Fear turns rational neighbors into irrational mobs, often swinging a country off balance in a Right-Wing direction – the very nemesis of what’s good for any country.
However, despite our 5-4 Supreme Court and vacation focused Congress, We the People can rise above our best ever, knowing, it’s not the Koch cross we bear, but how well we carry on, while bearing it to its burial place under an avalanche of raised minimum wages, equal pay for equal work and humanitarian votes.
To be successful in war and peace, we need the rational judgment of a brain not dominated by fear mongers. Our National Voter Registration Day, September 23, 2014 and November 4, 2014 Election Day are comeback chances for Constitutional reason overcoming the Police State of Our Union.
Voting is the way we fight for an America: truly free from the mockery of self-serving conservative Wall Street corporatism, totally honest with itself about Wolfowitz oil wars and Cheney Guantanamo Torture chambers and their contribution to our economic toll, military toil and double crossing election officials – and the true patriotic path to humanity toward each other.
In the voting war for America’s survival, expect daily battles between: those who profit from the sale of war & those who die in them; The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) vs. Equal Economic Opportunity for all; Those who expected an easier retirement vs. those who’ve always had it easy; those for all Americans enjoying an environmentally safe world and those who don’t give a damn about clean water, diminishing food supply or quality of life on earth.
Armed with facts, voters transform us from NRA neo-cons and NSA Twitter characters to informed citizens engaged in protecting our children and elections, from those fearing the humanity of those who outnumber their inhumanity. Educated voting instructs Wall Street moguls that our children no longer fight to uphold dictates of Koch government cronies.
There can be no bragging rights for stewardship of the earth without caring for all that lives upon it — and for pretenders who rape the environment, let us focus heart, mind and vote on global healthcare, being cognitively aware that the Enteroviruses epidemic attacking American Children especially those with Asthma, with what seems, at first a bad cold, and Ebola attacking West African children, are but the tip of an ignored iceberg — while corporatism’s Pentagon militarizes our police, infiltrates our elections with unreasonable Photo ID Laws and erodes this truth: Even when a hanging offense, our Founding Fathers, proclaimed all of America, a Free Speech Zone, minus Open Carry.
Are we to be a nation that permits spousal abuse if offenders score high enough or are we to win the game of life by demanding equality and justice for both the male and female of the species?
Do we choose to be Koch ramrodded by Kris Kobach and Sam Brownback, or shall we stand with Kansas citizens expected to vote, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further?
Shall we interpret law through the eyes of Bob McCulloch and minorities through the sights of Darren Wilson or shall we vote: all Americans are created equal?
Eighteen year old Hannah Graham is one of five young women abducted in Central Virginia in the last five years. When will we vote to hold accountable those who degrade women and children, and destroy community communion?

Beyond the little blossom of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are the thorns of disappearing clean air, safe drinking water, quality nutrition and independent thinking – the little things that don’t come cheaply, but freely determine individual and national direction: half full or half empty, love or infamy, war or peace.
So why, in state-of-the-art devices overload, are we more scattered, pre-occupied, overweight, in debt and too fearfully disconnected to get it?
A maze of polls, phone prompts, media blurring our roller coaster losses: thinking, vision, creating, balance, truth — and we’re missing it!
Why the intentional customer service contact website confusion, when even banks know a little Tweet exposes sneaky fees, and tossed UPS packages expressing little time for a little fragile package delivery sensitivity.
The longer we prefer Red vs Blue over fighting for each other, the longer we miss out and the faster America fades away.
It’s automatic assault weapons freely distributed by Pentagon puppets possessing little vision, sanctioning infiltration of little town America.
It’s the cash deposited in campaigns of little Cesares, to launder our elections with corporate and congressional bleach.
It’s failing to overturn Citizens United, to keep big money in and little people out.
When we the working people are belittled by voter ID laws, and States cut budgets, and the arts, but keep financial hands off athletic programs, America scores very little.
A little point of order: It’s NFL bottom line greed and fan apathy toward spousal abuse, imitating Bishops and Popes ignoring abused children, that depreciates our greater good.
Missing a little historical perspective on He kept us out of war Wilson, knowing too little regional history about ancient Middle East religious antagonism and next to nothing about just how much was left behind for the black man to clean up, there is little truth in the news, and little news in the truth.
Belittling a President dragged kicking and screaming into war, while hailing to the chief of war crimes and cheering for scoring bullies – is the work of little minds.
However, a little reality check into the imbalance between recession reality and the life of sports celebrities, political candidates and Corporate boards, we behold these truths: a politicized Supreme Court, an opportunistic Congress of Cowards too vacation oriented to honor its Constitutional duties and a media too mired in its own repetitious Pablum to know the difference – and that is The Gist of the excrement NFL owners and political pretenders to the throne of decency have outsourced equal economic opportunity.
As Americans accept responsibility and embrace accountability, by extension, America’s direction is exceptional among nations; But those yearning to repeal what’s in a name, Obamacare, are moral midgets standing on the backs of America’s 99.99% financially humbled, with student loan bludgeons.
Being exceptional means facing the truth about the not so little trends of Mother Earth’s rising temperatures, confused seasons, solar anger and global food consumption outpacing our ability to produce and corporate willingness to manufacture.
To be made worthy of individual praise and international respect, we need more than a little awareness of, and empathy for, the sometimes muffled or disguised pleas for help from battered wives, abused children and gun violence victims and shooters.
Hear those unashamedly paid $8.50 hourly, and grasp that millions of Americans go to bed hungry, while multi-millionaires profit from fans of those who equate sportsmanship with scoring abused women and children, as definition of manhood and the direction of our nation — and we are missing it.
