“Hmm, have mercy
The blues , the blues is a healer
Blues, blues, is a healing healer
It healed, healed, healed
Heal, heal, heal!
All over the world, all over the world
It’s a healer”
“…in really scary societies all public conversation is an exercise in using words to mean their opposites —”
If we invest in alternative energy, we can establish colonies on the moon and explore the stars.
“All of us are more than fed up with mediocrity, hypocrisy, lesser-evil, trickle-down, less-than-perfect settling for spending trillions and killing millions for munitions firms and billionaires who pay no taxes and steal what we pay.
“Obama said his rule without law gave him the right to murder at will. Trump agrees. ”
“…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
We can’t continue spending trillions killing millions for billionaires in pursuit of corporate empire.
“Bernie Sanders said very clearly in the debates with Clinton (and in public statements) that he intends to continue Obama’s 31 wars of choice against smaller and less powerful nations who did not attack us.”
Dr. Jill Stein has a plan for revolutionary change. She wants to put everyday people back in charge.
Hillary will not be good for women, people of color, non-millionaires in America… or anyone in 27 nations where she wants … More
“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.”
The truth is powerful.
All current American conflicts (including the West Bank and Gaza) … involve CIA destabilization, attacks, bombings, invasions and/or occupations for exploitation, extraction and extortion.

Jill Stein was honored to learn yesterday (Wed. Feb. 26,2016) that Chris Hedges,
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and fearless truth-teller, published an article on Truthdig entitled: “Why I Support Dr. Jill Stein for President”.
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.
