The liberal progressive I was when I was in HS who 30 years ago rallied for environmental causes and alternative, renewable clean energy THEN, when I graduated HS and still am today who is STILL trying to bail out the Titanic with a thimble when it comes to wanting peace, a clean planet, social justice and healthcare for all to name but a FEW of the things I've been for but I am NEVER going to give up because change never comes EASY. Strange creatures people are that the most simple of concepts they cannot wrap themselves around as this predislection for violence, dominance and the need to control evertything and see this religious superiority,wealth and power thing or refusal to change one's mind over HOW we make or use energy has us in perpetual wars and so on the path to our inevtiable DESTRUCTION if we don't change this attitute right NOW. What part of "stupid" can't people get here already? Man but driling, mining, fracking, dumping endless crap into our oceans, rivers, toxins in our lands, chemicals in our livestock, the seeds we plant and the lands we plant them in and contaminating everything with nuclear waste and blowing up the earth with bombs and pro-creating like rats when we cannot even feed the people that are already here while passing laws stating birth control is "immoral and a SIN" and developing green energy and trying to use IT or manufacturing fuel efficent automobiles is a liberal CONSPIRACY THEORY an is UnAmericanb now" because the oil and gas industry wants to dominate us all like they have been for over a HUNDRED DAMN YEARS is so cool and just? Come ON People!!!! Is THIS what you want to leave behind for your kids??? A polluted wasteland of death and destruction all because some greedy corporations and brain dead leaders want to keep it up for short term profits and personal gain for themsleves and not you and so you can keep dumping a few bucks of cheaper gas in your tank while thoudands more die in wars over this and the earth dies? Money can always be made another way tomorrow. Clean air, water, soil and food and those very basic building blocks of life we ALL depend on to live as we do now cannot be replaced or "made tomorrow". Think. Oh for once in your lives, THINK beyond today and even tomorrow and what some greedy, selfish dingbats who claim to be so "holy and righteous" tell you as they WANT you to live in denial and ignorance, want your CHILDREN to live in denial and ignoirance which is why all of a sudden a college education is "elitist and snobbery" that should NOT be available to just ANYBODY, especially us average blue collar working stiffs and our kids. Shit, we are not even deserving of decent public schools anymore so cut THEIR funding all the more and those rotten "thug teachers" while we're at it.
No, no and NO. Dumbed down and STUPID is NOT what where we need to anymore then we already have. Get up, get involved and get in charge. Learn, learn, learn and learn some more.
Keeping my head shaved until we stop stupid WARS, end these useless tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires and starting fixing America by investing in CONSTRUCTION, not DESTRUCTION!!!
Live and Let Live
What Gives Me Hope
There ARE people out there that have not gone COMPLETELY crazy. Now to go out, keep FINDING them and getting them engaged enough to DO something and not be afraid to.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
The word tax and spend is not a dirty word and nor is LIBERAL!!! It's what we've been spending things ON that has been the problem for far too long baby and what our taxes have used FOR that has been the problem as well. Now get down to business and let's fix THOSE problems, eh?
What/who changed my life and why
There a lot because I read strictly auto-biographries, biographries and history and you can't go wrong when the people and events you're reading about are TRUE. Life is too short to fill your head with BS. I have to say Chris Hedges writing, where he has been, what he has done and how he thinks truly fascinates as well inspires me greatly along with his intelligence. So have Ted and Bobby Kennedy, Eleanor Roosevelt and Mahatma Ghandi. If there is a man I would give anything to have walked with, Ghandi is IT.
