Bernie backs American aggression

Bernie Sanders, George Bush, Barack Obama, Dick Cheney, Hillary Clinton, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Ronnie Reagan, Elizabeth Warren and the rest of the Millionaire’s Glee Club agree on continued aggression abroad to enhance the corporate bottom line.

Bernie Sanders is invested in endless war, regardless of the costs…  This is how he supports Hillary the Hawk. 

Sanders’ positions on Gaza, U. S. Wars of Choice and munitions profiteering are right-leaning conservative options for maintaining the status quo.

This is not acceptable from Trump, Clinton, Bush, Obama, Cruz or Sanders.

We can shut down 27 corporate wars of choice, stop production of a dysfunctional bomber. and reinvest trillions in rebuilding infrastructure and exporting information, education, agriculture, technology and peace instead of disinformation, ignorance, munitions, aggression and war.

 Flogging the dead horse of unending war is unacceptable, unsustainable and untenable.

We must continue to raise these issues, even when Bernie says shut up.

Bernie Sanders, George Bush, Barack Obama, Dick Cheney, Hillary Clinton, Bernie2George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Ronnie Reagan, Elizabeth Warren and the rest of the Millionaires’ Glee Club agree on continued aggression abroad to enhance the corporate bottom line.  Perhaps we can learn from the past 36 years of macho male misadventures and mistakes.

rainy4We need peace with honor. Shut down the corporate wars and reinvest in peace and productivity instead of bombs. The bottom line is peace or war. The only potential president with an offer on the table which begins with peace is Doctor Jill Stein. She can lead this nation to healing, recovery and reconstruction.

news3-1We can export agriculture, scientific solutions to environmental challenges, medical technology and the arts and practical skills we continue to develop and refine while we repair, replace, expand and augment existing U. S. infrastructure.

Peace is the key and courage is the cure.

https://thewordsmithcollection.wordpress.com/…/turn…/


guest_stein-640x360Dr. Jill Stein can provide the critical transition from exporting munitions, terror and war… to exporting knowledge, technology and medical and agricultural expertise… along with peace in our time.

Let’s allow her to help heal a nation in distress.

Stein was endorsed for President in 2012 by Noam Chomsky, a linguist, author and activist, and by Chris Hedges, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and war correspondent, among others. She is as real as it gets.”

Violence, Beatings, Murder and War are not “Solutions.”

The way to stop the killing is to stop the killing. A primary example is the death penalty. It is now illegal in 18 states but 32 states keep murdering prisoners anyhow. Some killed are innocents who committed no crime.

Murdering prisoners, abusive police, avoidable wars, unnecessary conflicts and elusive peace.  These problems begin early and they begin at home. Beating Children is ALWAYS wrong. Excuses for violently abusing a child ARE NOT reasons. The way to stop the violence is to stop the violence.

obamaOur last president continued four wars of choice and started 23 more.  We are told that endless war is unavoidable.

This is a lie.

https://thewordsmithcollection.wordpress.com/2014/09/26/the-bush-obama-agenda-27-wars/

resistPre-emptive violence is aggression. Killing prisoners who pose no threat or 50 innocents with a drone is urder. And wars of choice are crimes and an abomination.

Violence, Murder and Wars of choice have never been solutions. These scourges are the PROBLEMS.

heartless
But you would not know this by listening to American radio and TV, reading the newspaper or endorsing either party on both sides of the corporate aisle. We are in more wars than at any time since
World War Two. Everything is connected. They are murdering our children and getting away with it.

Join the Revolution.

post4Only one candidate in 2016 rejected aggression against children, black people, prisoners, peasants, everyday people and nations. This doctor stood up for peace, justice and freedom.

We could have voted for real solutions in 2016. If we organize, educate and wake up the American people, we can shut down wars and rebuild a nation.

The Last Judgement…

“Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods.”

  • visions4Is it silly or melodramatic… according to most Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, Atheists, Muslims, Agnostics, Existentialists, Humanists, Wizards, Christians, Shamans, Astrologers, Writers, Poets, Philosophers, Musicians, Teachers, Scientists, Fortune Tellers, Cartoonists, Artists and others… ?


    lotharlorraine

    “Last judgments” are blind-faith fear-mongering nonsense most often championed by paid priests or preachers fired up to scare … for purposes of placation, divination, control and despair. I never could accept “goin’ to hell” evangelism. In a large universe, perhaps beyond our ken, we can enjoy life, people with good hearts and explore the limits of imagination in creative leaps… without reinventing demons.

    cosmicDavidIcke

    Fortunately, many people are letting go of fear… in favor of joy.
    Those traditions of kings, churches and princesses… include rituals and myths: sad vestiges of forgotten yesterdays. But t
    oday makes more sense, embracing without fear, compromise or surrender. Life is short and too fine for worries….

    Franz-Kafka-Quotes-3“I’m not an atheist, and I don’t think I can call myself
    a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn’t know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God. We see the universe marvelously arranged and obeying certain laws but only dimly understand these laws. Our limited minds grasp the mysterious force that moves the constellations.”


    emmeline-pankhurst1

    “I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation, whose purposes are modeled after our own – a God, in short, who is but a reflection of human frailty. It is enough for me to contemplate the mystery of conscious life perpetuating itself through all eternity, to reflect upon the marvelous structure of the universe which we can dimly perceive and to try humbly to comprehend even an infinitesimal part of the intelligence manifested in Nature.”


    History_Einstein_for_end_of_Nuclear_Proliferation_Speech_SF_still_624x352“The scientist is possessed by the sense of universal causation. His religious feeling takes the form of a rapturous amazement at the harmony of natural law, which reveals an intelligence of such superiority that , compared with it, all the systematic thinking and acting of human beings is an utterly insignificant reflection.”

    “Everything that the human race has done and thought is concerned with the satisfaction of deeply felt needs and the assuagement of pain. One has to keep this constantly in mind if one wishes to understand spiritual movements and their development. Feeling and longing are the motive force behind all human endeavor and human creation, in however exalted a guise the latter may present themselves to us.”

Dreams, dreamers and dreaming

“Hold fast to dreams /
For if dreams die / Life is a broken-winged bird /
That cannot fly.”

― Langston Hughes

Sweet Dreams…



dream2

You may say I’m a dreamer,
but I’m not the only one.

I hope someday you’ll join us.
And the world will live as one.
John Lennon


Dreams

Langston Hughes, 19021967

raresouldotcomHold fast to dreams 
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.

Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.

Albert Einstein


…“Some might think that the creativity, imagination, and flights of fancy that give my life meaning are insanity.

Vladimir Nabokov



Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve imagined.”

Henry David Thoreau

visions1

“You said, ‘They’re harmless dreamers and they’re loved by the people.’ ‘What,’ I asked you, ‘is harmless about a dreamer, and what,’ I asked you, ‘is harmless about the love of the people? Revolution only needs good dreamers who remember their dreams.

Tennessee Williams


“You are never too old to set another goal or to

dream a new dream.

― C. S. Lewis



The world of reality has its limits; the world of imagination is boundless.


Jean-Jacques Rousseau



visions2

All people dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their mind, wake in the morning to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous people, For they dream their dreams with open eyes, And make them come true.

D.H. Lawrence



“All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.

Edgar Allan Poe


visions3

“Our life is composed greatly from dreams, from the unconscious, and they must be brought into connection with action. They must be woven together. ”

Anaïs Nin


“My own heroes are the dreamers, those men and women who tried to make the world a better place than when they found it, whether in small ways or great ones. Some succeeded, some failed, most had mixed results… but it is the effort that’s heroic, as I see it. Win or lose, I admire those who fight the good fight.

George R.R. Martin


visions4

“Dreams, if they’re any good, are always a little bit crazy. ”

Ray Charles



“Yes: I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.”

Oscar Wilde, The Critic as Artist

“I’ll let you be in my dreams if I can be in yours


Bob Dylan,
Lyrics:1962 2001

“Our strategy should be not only to confront empire, but to lay siege to it.  To deprive it of oxygen. To shame it. To mock it.  With our art, our music, our literature, our stubbornness, our joy, our brilliance, our sheer relentlessness – and our ability to tell our own stories. Stories that are different from the ones we’re being brainwashed to believe.”

Arundhati Roy

Dr. Martin Luther King’s family and personal friend/attorney, William F. Pepper, won a civil trial that found US government agencies guilty of assassination/wrongful death.
