This is a safe place
between wars, arguments,
rhetoric, truth, poetry,
science and fiction.
“I’m for truth, no matter who tells it. I’m for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I’m a human being, first and foremost, and as such I’m for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.”
― Malcolm X
We can surrender to fear, war, hate, violence, injustice and inequity. And we have failed. Or we can refuse to surrender. Courage conquers fear. Peace trumps war. Love is stronger than hate. Violence begets violence. Injustice for one is injustice for all. And while we are not all equal, there is no reason on earth why the richest and most powerful nation on the planet cannot live up to its creed.
“Get up, stand up, Stand up for your rights. Get up, stand up, Don’t give up the fight.”
― Bob Marley, Bob Marley – Legend
We can become the peace
we seek if we work for justice.
No fear, no compromise, and no surrender.
“The question is not if we will
be extremists, but what kind of
extremists we will be.
The nation and the world are
in dire need of creative extremists.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.
“Peace is the only battle worth waging.”
― Albert Camus
“Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace.”
― Amelia Earhart

provide your own commentary…
take action, and be the peace we seek.
Instead of surrendering to war,
we must seek victory in peace.
“Ravens are the birds I’ll miss most when I die. If only the darkness into which we must look were composed of the black light of their limber intelligence. If only we did not have to die at all. Instead, become ravens.”
Conservatives vs Liberals
is a Corporate Con Game…
False Choices; Logical Fallacies.
We are both liberal and conservative…
We want to conserve what we value
(the environment, U.S. Constitution,
the Bill of Rights, Civil Rights, Human
Rights, Peace, Justice and Freedom)
and we need proactive civic-engagement
with the American liberal and progressive agenda.
