May Day! May Day:  Dancing In the Street – Headlined on OpEdNews.com 5/3/15

Posted on Updated on

Moon over AmericaAugust 9, 2014, Ferguson Missouri, black man shot by cop, left on ground, dead, ID:  Michael Brown.  Early morning April 12, 2015, 26-year-old Freddie Gray made eye contact with Baltimore police on west side — a week later, on sheeted hospital bed, died, after a rough ride.

Somewhere between Brown & Gray, white discovers what black always knew about some blue.  Yellow journalism and Red politicians scrambling to comprehend new reality, juggle incline, tap dancing for Right position:  Pink union mouth piece holds the ol’ gray line, now blue.

Now somehow the Christian thing to do, is to become pragmatic as the Jew, for after being exterminated by the millions, you grasp, as night follows the day, militarized force enforcing community curfew, in a moment can snatch life’s breath away.

What if Love Thy Neighbor as Thyself — rather than creating martyrs with bullets penetrating flesh — by the thousands we march silently through every city, not like Sherman to the sea, but softening as we go, SCOTUS marriage hearts, changing minds with massive Stand By Me:  reaping what we sow, twice we’ve overwhelmed Wall Street elections’ dough.

Alas, tis not the rioters for Media show that direct in what direction we must go.  Though if it bleeds ratings is their motivation, our smart phones now lift our voices in equal augmentation.  Thus we stand like Lady Liberty, in contemplation, ignited by total information on pedestal for all to see, if only we know our complete history.

Despite fear and seeds of hate blooming still in our nation, we can embrace all regardless of gender, political or sexual persuasion.  Now pressing hard upon us as a choice, trusting in We The People, we overcome paid K Street puppets, puppeteering to keep us feeble.

No president, not on the money can be solo perfect solution, for as long as we march off to war to fill the coffers of those Too Big to Jail for restitution, we’ll continue to brew a Tea stained fault-line as earth destroyers electing to take us back again, to Guantanamo’s waterboarding shame.

But we’re not here to fill in the Jersey Bridge gang hollow, but to refrain from political POVs, which once out from the shadows and at the keel, seek to supplant our roots and unravel what was once our New Deal.

Choosing to ignore Voter ID as Jim Crow epilogue, we forget White’s Only derision is not past but prologue.  It’s what, Separate But Equal bequeaths our present prejudice and future decision.

Yet unlike women on the battlefields of minimum wage, Constitutional inequality, domestic violence and campus rape, no Wall Street banker was ever forced to abuse the public trust, as 17th Amendment reversing Governors running our Koch States

Now, ours is not to reason why, but ours is surely, to reason, for Right or Left, this is our story, front and center:

  • Why have we only just noticed more people of color are shot by good and bad men and women with one thing in common – Wayne Lapierre’s bottom line?
  • Why do we argue over who’s responsible for Climate Change and The Great Recession instead of pooling our diversity for universal solutions?
  • How do we elect common sense and human decency?
  • When will we turn off media talking heads and turn out politicians offering only talking points?
  • Why do we allow Madison Ave and Wall Street marketing to distract us from becoming people demanding action
  • As we are all living longer, why not fund Alzheimer’s research instead of perpetual war

What we have been is no longer a guarantee, for in one brief shining moment we can lose our destiny, if we fail to embrace, We Are Family.

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
