Lifeblood of Decision Makers:  Image – Money – Votes – Power: OpEdNews.com Headline

Posted on Updated on

We need to stop banging our brainpower against banks instead of bankers, chastising Corporatism instead of CEOs and thumping Trump instead of trumping individual Koch-heads.

We need to sever our lifeline between lowlife lobbyists, gobbling Governors and corrupted Congress, by invading their space, and in serial peaceful assembly, hound the hording takers by increasing Call in Days.

In addition to marching in the street, let’s block driveways, corporate parking lots and entrances to government offices, so when decision makers look down through a glass darkly, they no longer see Boehner’s ants but democracy’s numbers.

Invading decision makers in ever increasing numbers, we light our path from under greedy uber power needing to keep us under their spell, into the light of being their earthly hell.

The individuals with whom we seek a face-to-face are far fewer than we and weakened by dismissively underestimating us.

Knowing they are serving poisoned food and water, suffocating life on earth, killing with endless waring lies and snuffing out the future of all younger than forty – they cling to Robber Baron infrastructure and do it anyway.

We are energized by identifying the marionettes dancing to dissonant tunes played by puppeteers without a public face.  Although unable to reveal those we cannot see, let’s divulge to those we know, the consequences of robbing, raping and pillaging USA.

This is not a time of Revolution or Civil War reruns, nor any form of violence.  This is a rebirth of freedom that demands the courage to stand tall, stand united – even in boycotting silent laser beam focus, directed at the heartless, soulless, arrogantly shameless decision makers who are laughing at us and the plight they’ve bequeathed us.

None of which will matter, however, to either valiant vanquished or vile villains if we keep enabling wannabe masters racing to Frack us with oil slicking, pipeline leaking, factory farming, water polluting and life chocking air.

Know this truth to be self-evident, our complete devastation in the next 25-75 years – brought upon us by those who know they’re killing us, but nonetheless, laugh all the way to the decision makers at Wells Fargo, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, Deutsche Bank et al – is only a dire possibility, not immanent to the fool-hearty – for foolishness dictates, there’s time to frolic, because poorer nations populated by darker complexions will have their food and clean water supply discontinued first.

When We the People recognize decision makers, like Koch’s Mitch McConnell, bigot Jeff Sessions and Paul Ryan’s Scott Walker are killing us, but our organized mutually beneficial causes choose to fail separately rather than grasp victory with the union needed in current power play heaped upon us by offenders of freedom – we die.

Forevermore, we must be, Out of Many, One!

Decision makers have money, but all our marches demonstrate, we are the numbers.  No CEO or elected official inner circle can win against united advocacy – nor can separate but equal causes defeat advertising billions.

However, when a moderate Center and all Left of Center prioritize having collective power over self-defeating turf battles, we will not be welcome mats for Trump/Putin/Pence/Sessions urinating Fascism all over our America the Beautiful.


  • Why will America, except for Puerto Rico and Florida, be one of the last nations to self-destruct?
  • Why are industry polluting facilities only built in neighborhoods populated by people of color?

Despite our current administration of human ticks, We the People reflect more international heroes like a Thai Soccer Coach, NATO and The Queen – when we embody the essence of our 1776 Declaration and 1863 Address.

King’s, all of God’s Children, still teaches importance of internalizing lessons of Gandhi’s fasting and Denzel’s Malcolm X – so we are emboldened by the hope in a reopened Emmitt Till murder investigation, Peter Strzok v Gowdy GOP – to hold accountable, presidential power inciting violence.

Now, let’s confront political image, expose bribes, halt gerrymandered votes threatening our 2020 Census, castigate CEO power and nullify the takers, taking our United States of America.

PS: if you think private and public decision makers will warn us like they did in Flint Michigan — you’re right.


Forgive them Father, for They Know Not What Trump is Doing – OpEdNews.com Headline

Weary of Joe Scarborough’s insisting Trump is not the warped, but predictable extension of, Taft’s Little Brown Brothers, Hoover’s Hoovervilles, Eisenhower’s Dulles Brothers infestation, Nixon’s assault on Checks and Balances, Reagan’s Trickle-Down mistakes were made on the backs of hardworking Americans, and the endless war for more, brought to us by Cheney & Wolfowitz.

Conservatism has been America’s ball and chain since Conservatives in the Second Continental Congress forced Thomas Jefferson to strike from our Declaration of Independence the abolishment of slavery.

How long will Republicans lie to themselves about how much they’ve abandoned Abraham Lincoln’s preserve, protect and defend the United States of America, Gettysburg standard.

And, so it is still with Trey Gowdy and Jim Jordan.  The former spending over 7.8 million taxpayer dollars over two and a half years, for nothing – and the latter choosing to ignore pleas for help from molested children.

Why do Republicans re-elect the apocryphal, I’m not a crook?

Nonetheless, no reasonable person can believe the Democratic Party has been a consistent, or even honorable shield for, We the People, but its Center-Left lineup of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor & Elena Kagan, Bobby Kennedy, Bill & Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama reveal an evolution, more often than not, dedicated to an American Dream shared by all, regardless of skin color, sexual persuasion or even political party.

How long will Republicans defend the proposition of condemning those who fail to lock-step with Conservative sexual, religious and political mindset – while worshiping a president who violates women, isolates children and profanes all forms of religion, including Christianity?

How long will Liberals insist we were ever united or civil with each other – even after WWII yielded few Justice for All victories on the home-front?

Is it not yet clear that, while desperate to use White House as ATM for Trump Brand, our 45th president is 86ing American forward and upward progress using Stand-Up – proving, perhaps, the one thing he understands is, There’s No Business Like Showbusiness.

How often have, We the People elected smiles and rhetoric without integrity?

No, it’s not just Trump, and Republicans are not the only ones making misguided and unfortunate choices for who we vote to employ on behalf of family, friends and fellow human beings.  However, since that infamous down escalator ride, Conservatism has revealed the ugliest America can be.

It’s intentionally challenging to know when to let go, why to ever turn the other cheek, where to stand tall with, this far but no farther — and how peaceful assembly resistance saves us from becoming what we’re against.

Like the ACLU and Rutherford Institute, I stand with those who revere our Constitution, as not only a sacred document, but a breathing counselor mentoring us in an all-inclusive, Golden Rule.

11% of the American population, including my father and four of his brothers, answered the call to be, the Greatest Generation, defending and projecting the extensive values of our Democratic Republic, the United States of America – including, whether they realized it or not, children molested while Church and State adults remained inseparable in their silence.

When will Democrats, Independents and Republicans recognize that The Gettysburg Address, defines The American Dream, as the very antagonist to the U. S. Army reneging on promise of citizenship for serving an ungrateful nation.

With assistance from 2016 non-voters, Trump’s dictatorship envy, now secedes 40% of voting Americans – forming a confederacy of comrades so twisting our interpretation of Land of the Free, it has created a mock world dangerously colluding with altered mental states.

When will Conservatives and religious zealots recognize the real 2018 American making his triumphal entry into Jerusalem riding an over-sized pig, amidst mesmerized cheerleaders applauding his violation of their God and our Country?

Instinctively, I sometimes recoil from Trump, longing to nullify the collective antagonists to American progress – but refusing to settle for less than the ideals of Presidents Josiah Bartlett and Andrew Shepherd – I shake off any cloning of hate’s desire for revenge – because I never want to see, those who cheer and applaud an administration ridiculing the physically challenged, sexually harassed and children suffering without the comfort of parents, reflected in my mirror.

Do you?
