Is Homeland Security repressing OWS


Is Homeland Security repressing OWS
If so this should be exposed.
If not there should be a public denial.
We were not born here to have Homeland Security 
Acting against us

Politico is pathetic launching Americans are lazy meme


Politico launched the Obama liar meme.
Politico headlined Obama's remark 
confessing US government laziness in pursuing business abroad
Suggesting he has called Americans lazy
An outright lie
The media followed in lockstep
Perry and Romney made despicable use of this big lie
I wish every American would understand this.
Send this to a friend in Iowa.

Slanted Coverage Underlines Police NY Injuries

Occupy is on the march. But during this day of activism well over 100 have been arrested and well over ten have been injured. Coverage has emphasized injuries to some five police officers, none serious. The Mayor has definitely implied that trouble emanates from Occupy.

The moral is that there will be no fair coverage because coverage is part of what Occupy has to deal with by dealing with society as it is. The inference is that it makes sense to choose actions that are hard to pin as disruptive. Strikes seem to me the most potent weapon.

Nevertheless it is interesting to see Occupy deal with the slanted media. Given popular sympathy for Occupy, I think it is doing very well thank you. What is obvious is that the movement builds. I hope it is a century long movement because it will take a century to achieve the necessary remaking of this world.

Maybe Occupy will really bite the bullet and challenge the lordship of oil and the automobile and sprawl.

The Four Freedoms Are Consistent With The Values and Goals of Occupy

Franklin D. Roosevelt, The "Four Freedoms" Address to Congress:

"In the future days, which we seek to make secure, we look forward to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms.

The first is freedom of speech and expression -- everywhere in the world.

The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way -- everywhere in the world.

The third is freedom from want -- which, translated into world terms, means economic understandings which will secure to every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants -- everywhere in the world.

The fourth is freedom from fear -- which, translated into world terms, means a world-wide reduction of armaments to such a point and in such a thorough fashion that no nation will be in a position to commit an act of physical aggression against any neighbor-- anywhere in the world."

Strikes are Better Than Disruptions


Strikes are better than disruptions 
Simply because as a message to the world
A stoppage is a more nonviolent act
And can be more massive at the same time
Disruptions elicit false reporting slanted to official narratives
They turn off viewers
A focused strike aimed at fairness and
Affirmation of the four freedoms
Is apposite

Your spirit and your body, they are one

Abba's Way:

Your spirit and your body, they are one;
Despisers of the body will not hear.
Still Abba speaks. Good news. A new day comes.
One day our wholeness will be crystal clear.

Hope in the struggle to move to better energy solutions

Better batteries: New technology improves both energy capacity and charge rate in rechargeable batteries: " Imagine a cellphone battery that stayed charged for more than a week and recharged in just 15 minutes. That dream battery could be closer to reality thanks to Northwestern University research."

Texas has influenced events negatively for decades

College Repub. calls Obama assassination ‘tempting’ | The Raw Story:

'via Blog this'

This is par for the course in the Lone Star state. A cauldron of hatred for our President just as it was in 1963 when the target was JFK. This woman is the dregs. Part of the dynamic that I have long called the jaws of hell. The biggest error of conspiracy theorists has been to ignore the probability that Oswald acted alone or in concert as part of a conspiracy. Somebody ran Oswald just as someone ran James Earl Ray and most probably Sirhan Sirhan. Single shooters fail. Successful ones are assisted by an operative culture of hate, an environment that tilts and tilts until evil manifests in all its resplendence and banality. That the woman could say she was joking suggests that she has been schooled in the same bilious yard occupied by Rick Perry.

Today's Corporate Phone Set-Up Should Be Deep-Sixed


Current call modes are the direct result of out automobile sprawl society
In my car free cyber community you would have everything face to face 
You would walk a mile or less to reach anything
You would find representatives in kiosks
They would complete transactions of all sorts
If you had to wait there would be tables and chairs

US Immigration Creeps Toward Fairness



Sad sad our treatment of the immigrant
But now at least some sense is creeping in
When we affirm the values already within
We move a tiny step toward where all win
