#ICantBreathe: America’s Rising or Setting Sun?

Posted on Updated on

Too Big To FailStaten Island Choke-hold or Cleveland bullets, we need rise above the darkness of political and corporate conservatives, for it is their greed for power that feeds racism, rape and poverty – keeping us in our place.

Armed only with the wisdom of Gandhi and courage of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, rise up in peaceful protest and following the money, honor the dead, remembering…

  • Effective action is taking our non-violent protests to the doorways and bank accounts of Corporatism
  • Deny your money to K and Wall Street people behind the culling of you, they deem dispensable
  • Boycott, not bullets defeat money power that needs a controlled citizenry.

Racism is not limited to white police and black youth, any more than rape is about sex.  Both are products of need for superiority, a fear of equality, diversity, informed thinking voters, and even educated consumers.

Let there be Light:  All Life Matters!

Women matter.  Black & brown lives matter.  The life of planet earth and all life upon it matters.

The lives of school teacher Ibolya Ryan in Abu Dhabi and 33 year old journalist Luke Somers mattered, both murdered because they personified a potential and promise that clashed with local religious perceptions and conservative beliefs.

Let there be Light:  In America conservatives jeer at border children, throw chicken and beer bottles before a peaceful multi-racial procession from Ferguson to Jefferson City, because Conservatives can’t imagine the light is for anyone less pink than they.

Let there be Light:  What is past is prologue for those who simply will not be color blind enough to see, reliving our past, drives us into our current events, dangerously propelling us into a future replete with repetitive violence:  racism, rape and police state sanctioned murder – funded by mass quantities of undisclosed political campaign contributions to insure a specific return:  super conservative wealth corrupts by destabilizing the Middle Class and corralling the poor in poverty — and it all matters!

Let there be Light:  The Great Recession was manufactured, to increase the divide between the haves and have-nots, and this kind of darkness can snuff out the light of our nation and the potential of our humanity, as quickly as a villainous group of law enforcers force the very breath of life out of a fellow human being.

Let there be Light:  The enemy of 99% of Americans is not each other.  Red vs. Blue is mass manipulation, as Open Carry is but a NRA tool and rogue police Conservatism’s foot soldiers – whose goal is as old as Biblical testament and as new as the last unarmed person murdered.

Detroit Water CorporatismBoth Ferguson and videoed choke holding are products of a few billionaires using Conservative Media, compromised Judges, Right Wing Governors and a K Street corrupted Congress, dominated by Conservatives who hate governing as much as they are complicit in the demise of the wellbeing of the citizens they are elected to preserve, protect and defend.

Let there be Light:  The motivation of shadows bankrolling the Conservative Republican agenda, is not the patriotism of our Founding Fathers, and certainly does not reflect the sacrifice of millions of Americans on battlefields, in classrooms, working multiple jobs – nor does it define the vast number of first responders, who ran toward the targets of 9/11, not to kill civilians, but to save them.

Let there be Light:  Most teachers, firefighters and police, choose to serve to educate us about, and protect us from, people like Timothy Loehmann, Darren Wilson, George Zimmerman and yes, Wayne LaPierre and even Pat Lynch.

To claim all police are like the four who beat Rodney King, is as ignorant as, all black people are cop killers — but not indicting when we have video proof of murder by chokehold suggests we are thought, easily duped.

Let there be Light:  Every person’s death, rape, denial of equal economic opportunity, affordable healthcare and a superior education without financial burden, diminishes us as a nation.

Knowing that here on earth God’s work must truly be our own, let us lie down in the green pastures of The Street, for when we know our enemy as ourselves, there will be Light!Dr. Martin Luther King Jr

2 U Who Inherit the 

Posted on Updated on

Earth 2

Now, you who Inherit the Wind, coal ash water, fired up earth — no burying heads in sand, hearts in partying, nor minds in oblivious whining – for in lost elections there is liberal education to recapture the essence of citizenship, civility and creative economic opportunity.

Free at last, free at last!  Thank Conservative dollars Almighty, #PBO is free at last, to be all we voting Yes We Can believers, hoped he’d change us into being.

You who will inherit the earth can be forgiven for thinking Obama could change American politics and even save the world single handedly, for thanks to us, so did he:  from Chicago’s Grant Park November 4, 2008, when we cried tears of joy with Oprah until, Happy Days Are Here Again faded under the residue of the Mushroom Cloud administration, with Conservative Republicans, delivering us unto Recession and Wall Street unto Too Big To Jail.

Y/Millennium, you inherit the earth from Baby Boomers, without the I Have a Dream wisdom of Thoreau, if you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.  Instead, in part due to I got this, we, self-satisfied that electing a different looking president, guaranteed a different looking results, went home.

If you’re under 40 years old, you are going to inherit the earth we allow the old white predominately male bonus laden Wall Street CEO’s and their Congressional puppets leave us.

Before 140 character attention vapors evaporate, or irresistible Instagram urges plow asunder new butt cheeks discussion, let’s consider…

  • Whether a peaceful Hands Up protester or police state racist; a twenty something voter or political coaster; a misinformed or uninformed thirties Open Carry Right Wing Nutcase or Nader gator Green Energy part-time park tent Occupier — you will inherit the earth the Koch brothers and Koch heads like Mitch McConnell, Sheldon Adelson, John Boehner, Karl Rove, Ted Cruz, pork slicer Joni Ernst and pig torturer Chris Christie bequeath you — unless we expose and repudiate such earthly inheritance and vote globally.
  • When limiting individual focus to personal issues like student loans or Net Neutrality, you may inherit the earth left behind by Attorneys General Alberto Gonzales & Eric Holder DOJ designated Too Big to Fail, unless we become a part of a conversation broader than the latest bar or sports score.
  • Whether we acknowledge, or not, the impact on us by ISIS be-headings, our tax dollars bombing, military and campus rape, school shootings’ acceptance, hazing & pledging deaths, reality show of fixable gender and racial inequities in our income and prison ratios — without our electoral attention, you will inherit an earth starved of essential equity, blotted out by food, environment and even jobs that kill more people born after 1974 faster, than birthrate before Watergate.
  • Being redirected by pocket lined Republicans killing Jobs Bill or oil soaked Keystone pipeline sod, or not knowing calling it Obamacare or Affordable Care Act, it’s the Insurance Companies’ economy stupid, you will inherit a TPP Corporatism scorched earth without Single Payer, Medicare for All, Extended Medicaid but with, overcrowded emergency room panic.
  • If we can’t hyperlink our Ellis Island past and Statue of Liberty inheritance with our Immigration vs. Deportation future; if social devices prevent critical thinking, then those under 30 inherit an earth of melting icebergs, fossil fuel emissions and top heavy economic imbalance, instead of a freed from the shackles of corporate obstruction and Conservative gridlock, though neither saint nor messiah Obama – a chess player finally free, with our help, to make his game changer moves for Z/Boomlets who will inherit the earth.Z Boomlets Generation
