If we wanted to squeeze close, everyone in the world could stand shoulder-to-shoulder on the island of Zanzibar.”
“We can flood our years with sunshine — with the divine climate of kindness, and we can drain to the last drop the golden cup of joy.”
We can rebuild sustainable infrastructure and restore human resources by choosing peace over war.
“…We have an historic opportunity for a great global healing and renewal. If we will accept the challenge of nonviolent activism with faith, courage, and determination, we can bring this great vision of a world united in peace and harmony from a distant ideal into glowing reality.”
~Coretta Scott King
It’s like we’re slippin’ into darkness…
The Democrats and Republicans are both right wing. Period.
“Our generation is on the verge of the most profound catastrophe the human species has ever faced. Death threats to the living earth are coming from all sides. Water, sunlight, air and soil are all threatened.”
Corporate wars and profiteering have already bankrupted the nation. If we continue down this road, a global recession will occur and we will be in full retreat from 800 military bases while dying oceans flood all shores.
We need a Green New Deal
While stepping back from governing to politic, look pretty and tell lies… Obama allowed the CIA, the Pentagon, profiteers and criminals to attack dozens of nations who have not attacked us for destruction, extraction, exploitation and extortion. This shameful display of aggression, in our name, has made America a pariah state.
“Obama said his rule without law gave him the right to murder at will. Trump agrees. It is critical to wake up everyday people before we lose the rest of our civil rights.”
“…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.”
Today’s explosive increase in human CO2 emissions and warming of the oceans are recreating the conditions of the great Permian extinction 300 million years ago
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!
We cannot continue fighting 27 simultaneous, unprovoked and unwinnable wars. This has bankrupted the nation.
Time heals all wounds…
“Bernie Sanders said very clearly in the debates with Clinton (and in public statements) that he intends to continue Obama’s 25 wars of choice against smaller and less powerful nations who did not attack us.”
Hillary will not be good for women, people of color, non-millionaires in America… or anyone in 27 nations where she wants … More
“At home, militarized police departments allow officers to kill unarmed citizens at will with zero accountability. And our leaders export aggression overseas with illegal drones known to kill an average of 50 innocents per strike.”
“The minute we stand up, we are unstoppable. It’s time to forget the lesser evil and fight for the greater good.”…
Los Angeles: I sat down for an interview with Robert Scheer of Truthdig, who has interviewed every president for the past 40 years. Towards the end he told me – on the record – “I’ve spent quite a bit of time interviewing people who became president or who were president… And so, just in this short interview – there’s no question in my mind that you’re every bit the equal or superior to all of the presidential candidates that I’ve talked to.” Needless to say, I was honored to get a thumbs-up from Robert Scheer, who hasn’t previously been a fan of independent politics. Yet another sign of the rapidly changing political landscape!
