Imagination is the Cure…

If we invest in alternative energy, we can establish colonies on the moon and explore the stars.

Humans are carbon-based beings.  And we are NOT suffering from overpopulation.

This is a myth.

We can shut down wars of choice and reinvest those funds in infrastructure, alternative energy, education, health care, housing and peace. We have solutions.

We need not go back to living in caves to survive. We have viable solutions, but crazy people spend trillions on war… making sustainable alternatives impossible.

resist
I can ride my bicycle down to the creek and go fishing, get in my electric truck and drive across the nation, sail a ship across the ocean and fly a solar-powered plane anywhere on the planet. Investing in alternative energy, we can establish moon colonies and explore the stars.

We are young, we humans beings… and it’s too early to write us off.

Technology is not the problem. War, greed and stupidity are the problems.

We can shut down the wars and hold the cons accountable by organizing, educating and agitating.  This has been working across human history.

Between 2000 and 2050, it is expected to grow by 0.77 percent.[3] So yes, because 0.77 is greater than zero, it is a positive growth rate, and the world population will continue to grow.

“…the whole world is sinking and we’re not goin’ down slow. It’s way past time to organize, resist, stand up and fight back.”

Looks like we get to pay our dues

crazytrump

19% of America
voted for Trump.
But 81% of America
did not vote
to get chumped.

 


 

The unfortunate part is that Obama and Trump are on the same page: Trump will keep spending trillions to kill and displace millions. These unnecessary conflicts will continue our downward spiral into fiscal chaos, global depression and retreat… while oceans rise to flood all shores.

resist
This nation, already bankrupt, will continue down the same “wars and profiteering” highway.  The only  escape from this insanity is: secure the peace, rebuild infrastructure, restore civil rights and export knowledge, technology and peace while trying to save the planet.

But so far, it looks like Trump is part of the same old millionaire’s glee club. 95% of the rest of us are not in the club.  We can expect more jobs exported angrytrumpoverseas, sinking incomes and rising health care costs… with banksters robbing us blind and stealing our homes while the CIA is hijacking our future.

 

 

Four years of paid college education along with universal, single-payer, non-profit health care are not in Trump’s deck.  (He’s dealing from the same deck used by the last five presidents.)

 
Trump is in office because neither party offered a qualified candidate. Sometimes wolftrumpwe have to suffer because of incompetents, liars and crooks, but we don’t have to like it.
 

We deserve a leader gutsy enough to secure the peace. This did not happen in November 2016 and will not happen until we demand it.

Til’ then we’re screwed.

 

crazytrump


Trump, Clinton, Sanders. Obama and their ilk are unwilling to change. They allow transnational corporations to have their way with the American people.  And planet Earth hangs in the balance.



 

Trump, the orange con man, is a sociopath. His narcissism, thin skin, fragile ego, sanctimonious ignorance, pouting twitter tweets and adolescent outlook are bright red flags.  He’s got a screw loose.

 
trump-selfie



Our new president is self-possessed and delusional. Donald is prejudiced against people of color, Mexicans and women.  Trump acts like a petulant rebellious teenager.  Don John thinks everybody is out to get him. This childlike paranoia is not presidential and may be dangerous for this nation.  

 

Any corporate media promoted “rage” against Trump has nothing to do with this nightmare. What people feel about Trump is not the vitriol pretended in mainstream media presses. Most everyday Americans feel pity and/or disgust at Donald’s lewd, petty and vitriolic hate. 81% of the nation did not vote for Donald.

This orange boy-man needs to grow up real quick.

occupy
We deserve better.

And meanwhile…
the whole world is sinking and we’re not goin’ down slow.
It’s way past time to organize, resist, stand up and fight back.

Fidel Castro: An International Hero

“A revolution is a struggle to the death between the future and the past,” Fidel once memorably said. Though the man has died, the ideas for which he struggled and to which he dedicated his life will undoubtedly live on, not just in Cuba but anywhere imperialism and the exploitation of the weak by the strong is a fact of life.”

bn-qy549_fidel__m_20161126075116

Castro was a flawed man, but he saved lives in Cuba, Africa and across the planet. He rescued Cuba from the Batista dictatorship and provided free health care and the highest literacy rates on the planet.

 
These accomplishments were huge, in spite of billions of U. S. dollars spent to isolate and harm
the Cuban people and their revolution.


Some facts you may not know…

Less than 20% of U. S. congress members are women.
Nearly half of the Cuban Parliament seats are held by women.
Cuba has a higher GDP growth rate than America.
 
Cuba has a lower unemployment rate than America.

castro_fidelito_2
According to a study conducted in late April by the U.S. Department of Education and the National Institute of Literacy, 32 million adults in the U.S. can’t read. That’s 14 percent of the population. 21 percent of adults in the U.S. read below a 5th grade level, and 19 percent of high school graduates can’t read.

The American literacy rate is around 86%

Cuba has the highest literacy rate on the planet: 99.8%

(along with Latvia and Estonia)


Fidel Castro was a great friend to Africa, to countries in the Global South and to the Non-Aligned Movement. His place in history is assured.
 

fidel-castro-rtoday-720x593

“Fidel, as he is known to all in Cuba and worldwide, is recognized as the principal leader of the Cuban Revolution, for his relentless struggle in overthrowing the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista on January 1, 1959.

 


Most importantly, Fidel inspired Cuban workers, students and peasants to carry on the fight against U.S. imperialism and go forward to build socialism.

Despite all their propaganda, U.S. imperialists know that it is not Fidel Castro alone who made and sustained the Cuban revolution. The Cuban people as a whole worked and struggled to defend their socialist revolution and their liberation.

Fidel’s unique capacity as an audacious military and political leader earned him the rightful title of “Comandante en Jefe,” and the deep admiration of the Cuban people.

Despite a relentless CIA campaign of demonization and assassination plots, Fidel not only survived, but emerged defiant as an immensely popular and revered leader in the worldwide anti-imperialist movement.



…Cuba’s alliance with Venezuela’s revolutionary process following Hugo fidel-castro-gives-rare-possible-farewell-speech-at-cubas-communist-party-congressChávez’s election as president, has breathed new life into the hopes and aspirations for all Latin America and the oppressed peoples of the world.

 
“This is why the U.S. empire demonizes Fidel Castro.
But it is also why his stature grows and the Cuban revolution continues to inspire others to fight for liberation.”

“By defying Yankee imperialism for 50 years, instituting the best healthcare, child immunization and literacy systems in the Western Hemisphere (surpassing the US and Canada), exporting doctors to countries in need all over the globe (the Bush administration turned down his offer to send medical teams to New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina), and being an unrepentant advocate of the poor and exploited it is no surprise that millions will mourn his passing.”


1992
Fidel Castro passed away at age 90.
Standing well over 6 feet (1.8m) tall, the bearded Castro was for years a cigar-chomping bulwark of ideological resistance to the United States.

Native Americans Under Assault

https://revolutionresource.org/2016/11/20/stand-up-for-standing-rock-sioux/

Stand up for Standing Rock Sioux

This assault on native American tribes is illegal, immoral and an abomination. This is not who we are. Resist!

sr5Cannon Ball, ND– Hundreds of water protectors were injured at the Standing Rock encampments when law enforcement blasted them with water cannons in freezing temperatures Sunday evening.   The attacks came as water protectors used a semi-truck to remove burnt military vehicles that police had chained to concrete barriers weeks ago, blocking traffic on Highway 1806.  Water protectors’ efforts to clear the road and improve access to the camp for emergency services were met with tear gas, an LRAD (Long Range Acoustic Device), stinger grenades, rubber bullets, and indiscriminate use of a water cannon with an air temperature of 26 degrees Fahrenheit. Some flares shot by law enforcement started grass fires which were ignored by the water cannons and had to be extinguished by water protectors. Law enforcement also shot down three media drones and targeted journalists with less lethal rounds.

sr3National Lawyers Guild legal observers on the frontlines have confirmed that multiple people were unconscious and bleeding after being shot in the head with rubber bullets.  One elder went into cardiac arrest at the frontlines but medics administered CPR and were able to resuscitate him.  The camp’s medical staff and facilities are overwhelmed and the local community of Cannonball has opened their school gymnasium for emergency relief.

2016-09-16-1474044012-2676960-defend_the_sacredUnarmed people are brutalized by thugs with badges. Obama does nothing. When will he send Federal Troops to restrain these thugs from illegal and unconstitutional assaults on innocents.

War is not the answer…

Election year nonsense can be very painful.

kingtrumpElection year nonsense can be very painful.
The Republican party bragged about wanting to spend trillions killing millions in avoidable wars for billionaires… and the Democratic party lied about wanting to spend trillions killing millions in avoidable wars for billionaires.



With Trump, Clinton or Obama… this was a losing proposition. 

81-kpqrfqzl-_sl1500_


We had two actual choices:

One choice was Trump or Clinton for wars on the road to ruin

 

The other choice was Dr. Jill Stein and The Green New Deal: securing the peace and investing in people, progress and the planet.

War was not the answer. 

angrytrump


But mainstream media represented the corporate elite and gave us entertainment instead of hard news.

So we got Trumped.
 

Now that the deed is done, we can’t pretend anymore.
We can secure the peace and rebuild the nation or let the bottom fall out.  


Time to organize.   Si se puede.

War is not Peace. Ask the victims.

If we continue expanding unprovoked wars of aggression, before 2030 we will be in full retreat while rising seas flood nuclear reactors and our coastal cities.

hillarynutI am flabbergasted that otherwise intelligent progressives are willing to pretend Hilary Clinton is not a corporate shill and war-monger.

 

obama_yes_we_can_murderReasons why Hillary Clinton won’t be good for women… or anyone else. “It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realise why Hillary Clinton’s hawkish foreign policy might be a problem when it comes to women’s rights. Unless you believe that the lives of women elsewhere don’t matter…”

 
 
…Clinton has been much more than a bit player in the Syrian crisis. Her diplomat Ambassador Christopher Stevens in Benghazi was killed as he was running a CIA operation to ship Libyan heavy weapons to Syria. queen hillaryClinton herself took the lead role in organizing the so-called “Friends of Syria” to back the CIA-led insurgency.
 
 
In a climate in which war-weary Americans are making their opposition to U.S. intervention and war profiteering heard, Clinton, who served in the U.S. Senate from 2001 to 2009 and as Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013, has supported every major recent U.S. war and intervention.

Hillary: The Amoral Laughing Ghoul: Hillary has spent trillions, killing millions for billionaires who support her.
 
Facts remain. If we keep pretending… this will end the American experiment.
 
If we continue expanding unprovoked wars of aggression, before 2030 we will be in full retreat while rising seas flood nuclear reactors and our coastal cities.

About Hillary
scaryclintonHillary’s crimes cannot be erased…
“In March 2011, Clinton supported the NATO attacks on Libya to aid rebels in their attempts to overthrow Moammar Gadhafi, which … led to Libya becoming the failed state that it is today.”

Hillary Clinton is a war hawk. Is this what we need?

Hillary Clinton advocates American aggression against nations whose people have not attacked us.
She supports CIA destabilization tactics, unprovoked attacks, invasions, illegal wars, occupations, exploitation and overt imperialism
Neither Hillary nor Trump will do.
We cannot continue unprovoked American aggression for profit.
hillaryhawkWhen asked about moral scruples, Hillary the hawk’s response was:
“What difference, at this point, does it make?”
“Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.”
― Aldous Huxley
Donnie and Hillary may have royal ambitions, but they are not presidential material. And we do not need a king or queen.

Trump or Clinton will sink all ships

We cannot continue spending trillions killing millions for billionaires in pursuit of corporate empire. Global economists agree this has already bankrupted the country and will destroy the nation between 2020 and 2030. We are teetering on the brink.

queen hillarykingtrump
Donnie and Hillary both had royal ambitions, but neither one of them is presidential material.  And we do not need a king or queen.

Obama declared that he, as the American president, had the “right of kings” to murder at will without due process of law. According to this theory, a president can murder anyone, anywhere, anytime, for any reason… or without providing any reason at all. Congress did not challenge this rank treason because they are mostly cowards, thieves and profiteers.  Our new King Trump and would be Queen Hillary agree with this insanity and do not belong anywhere near the White House.  Voting for either of these clowns makes no sense

https://thewordsmithcollection.wordpress.com/2016/07/20/neither-hillary-nor-trump-will-do/

 

no1

27 simultaneous, expanding wars of unprovoked aggression is a bad platform. Launching thousands of drones known to kill an average of 50 innocents per strike and bombing smaller and less powerful nations will only continue to create more enemies and make us even less secure.

war-is-money

We cannot continue spending trillions killing millions for billionaires in pursuit of corporate empire. Economists agree this military madness will bankrupt the country and destroy the nation between 2020 and 2030.  We are teetering on the brink.

cropped-cropped-peace-justice11

Our future is in our hands. If we had voted for Dr. Jill Stein and the Green New Deal (voting values instead of fears)  we could have taken back the nation, secured the peace, established justice and guaranteed freedom.

But that time has passed and we are in serious trouble.
