People Demanding Action Poster SmallIt’s not necessary to love a person to find some areas of agreement and common experiences:  NSA spying victims, under-employment, unregulated Wall Street Banker caused recession, and our First Amendment of the U. S. Constitution guaranteeing all Americans

  • the freedom to be stupid or informed
  • to be an inhumane bully or give a voice to the voiceless
  • to be a billionaire terrified of gullible consumers transforming into informed voters or to champion the unity and equality of Human Rights, Civil Rights and Voting Rights

Whether faith or politics, earth steward or climate denier, ostrich or prophet – the needs of humanity, power grids, infrastructure and the earth have reached, the level of urgent time limits — and those resisting an American renewable transformation, tend also, to be against much of what is good for earth and its human inhabitants.

However, there is one universal mantra they chant:  no matter how we vote, who we marry, what our color or gender – we don’t matter.

The world’s population is consuming more food and water, faster than the earth can produce it.  And when supply and demand intersect the crossroad of scarcity, who shall be the first served life giving water and who, left to die fighting in the streets, over an aluminum can of artificial sweeteners?

The connection between California drought and an ocean encroaching on Florida beaches is clarity: Climate Change denying is Energy Apartheid and with our ballots we must unite against Governors, State Legislatures and Congress, for being unfit to govern.

Want to occupy something, Occupy this:

  • Even Bangladesh is installing solar panels at the rate of 70,000 a month
  • Fracking and Keystone pipeline have united cowboys with Indians and farmers with ranchers, against both
  • Americans use more energy between midnight New Year’s Eve and noon on January 2nd than the continent of Africa uses in a year.

The World Health Organization reports, there is massive migration in the Pacific as people race against death by Climate Injustice, but western Corporations create new Climate Refugees, every day.

Sixteen thousand Americans in Richmond, California having to go to the hospital, because Chevron repeatedly ignoring the humanity of remorse in favor of the laws of profit, is no accident of nature.

Who is it that insists oil dependency and fossil fuels are better for America’s financial, physical and mental health, than farmers and communities creating their own renewable free energy from corn cobs and batteries?

Who is denying our weather has changed dramatically for millions of Americans and Global Warming, whether due to Climate Change or not, will enslave our next generations if not deny them, their very existence?

Who’s fighting against The Clean Power Plan, an extension of the Clean Air Act?  And Why?

Historically, America’s energy sources have evolved, wood, coal, oil, natural gas, nuclear.  Why not in the 21st century take the next logical step to solar and wind energy?  Answer:  Fortunes will change from Wall Street board rooms to Main Street roof tops, and Corporatism’s Koch heads are petrified at the potential loss of their power over us.

This, not patriotic fervor, is why billionaires like Norman Braman and Sheldon Adelson spend tens of millions of their free speech to squelch our free elections.

Now, hold these truths to be self-evident:

  1. In revenge for the 1960s Civil Rights movement, we’ve inherited inequity in housing, incarceration and Food Desserts. What will those born in 2001 inherit?
  2. There are fewer gangsters on our streets, than in the suites on The Street
  3. All our social and financial issues erupt from our insatiable rape of earth, water, air and food-chains.

If keeping a job is so important you’d continue to work for the very company polluting your family’s drinking water, then consider the employment opportunities available to us, IF, instead of investing tax dollars in corporate welfare for recession creating Too Big To Fail Mega Banks, We The People invested in transforming America into a Solar Energy Powered, Super Power; controlled by local communities, instead of the Corporatism of Koch heads determined to dominate government on all levels and puppet string 99.9% of all Americans.

The most essential advocacy for Americans in 2015:  connect the dots connecting us, for truly all roads, Pinched Prosperity Place, Police State Street, Gun Violence Highway, Mass Incarceration Ave, Voter Intimidation Interstate and Bullies Boulevard – all lead to disappearing Florida, Mid-West tornado destruction and California drought – on the Climate Injustice Beltway.

Solutions for social, financial and employment challenges begin with ceasing our denial of Climate Change, for the cry of Mother Earth is increasingly urgent – and it will be too late if our grandchildren are left to dry her tears.

Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.

Joining an all-inclusive Climate Advocacy, we can recharge America and power up all Americans:

Bullies and Friends

Posted on Updated on

Bullies and Friends New PosterRed vs Blue, bonuses for rich, water shutoffs for poor, retired senior and aspiring youth, for better or worse, inequitable pay for women, the raped and the entitled — it’s all bullying, and we’re past due for our preventive inoculation.

No matter how deep the abyss or high mountains loom, knowledge and awareness are the solution:  ever since  Cain and Abel, the inhumane habitually badgered and intimidated human beings they perceived different, weaker or less worthy — at the workplace to control the workforce for the marketplace, in the military and on campuses filled with gender opposites attracting best and worst, defiling to maintain cave man rights to take the spoils, spoiling lives with alcoholic assault.

However, even a world seemingly overcomplicated with ceaseless demands and impotent bureaucracy, infused by those who need both redirect and misdirect the masses to serve up to the higher ups, implementing 24/7 dummied down maze of media myopic drool, that keeps our heads spinning with spin.  It’s just another infestation of bully manifestations.

Nonetheless, even the 1% behind the 2014 Bilderberg curtain pulling the bullied strings, can be deflated like a football by the Golden Rule.

Neither G.P.A., free Community College or four year student debt weighted; black, white, red, yellow or sky blue green; whether Middle School bully or High School bullied, Full Stop occurs only when the bully’s target is us enabled with the courage to turn, face the craven rat with a mirror reflecting his coward’s scowl, proclaiming, this far you have come, but no farther — I am not your doormat, for I distinguish between Bullies and Friends.

In every era, bullying, bullies and friends are rooted in history’s documentation, at all social & economic levels, and marital status, but it is the younger circle of friends most tragically impacted by the evolution of bullying into Trolling social media Likes for power yielding information, connecting the dots between Auschwitz death camps and New Millennium breath taking, life snatching, Bullicide.

While neither bullies nor bullying is limited to school yards, classrooms, voter polling places, private prisons, military deployment or police state city streets, our most intelligent response, realizing both bully and bullied are among our friends — be a reasonable voice.

Nip it in the Bud, perhaps remains a nation’s most reasonable call to action.  Stand with school friends who don’t feel safe, not hesitating to be device connected as security assurance, even in a teen’s bedroom.

As we celebrate the courage of Nebraska landowners standing tall against Keystone’s corporate political bullies, and the Friendship Nine sit-in against racial bullies, the prevention of sexual bullying is not in banning the potential female victim from Fraternity House bully pit parties, nor turning a blind eye to an elevator NFL wife beater, or a deaf ear to increasing numbers of spouses bullied on Super Bowl Sunday.

As long as bullying lives in the hearts and minds of those who can only justify themselves by imposing oppressive power over others, most rapists and other bullies will remain co-workers, bosses, dates, police, classmates, family and friends.

Our 21st century devices are at once both inroads for sexual predators and digital informational highways to education and human development connection.

The most mature response?  Immunize our children against all childhood diseases, including Bullicide; for like date rape, bullying thrives on adult ignorance of a child’s life – and cyber space bullying comes from both Bullies, and Friends, with deadly potential.

Perhaps three life lessons:  laugh as much as you can, especially at yourself, never miss an opportunity to say I love you, and always, regardless of their age, always listen to the children, for the younger we start the greater the save.
