The Great 2000s Awakening - We Are Exposing the Corporate Wizard of Oz Game

I remember in the late 60s we tried
to connect the dots between
corporate games and our actual lives
In fact I believe we may have had
the first modern Wall Street protest
when we were fighting to get churches to agree to
reparations for years of ecclesiastical racism


Now we are connecting the dots
Koch products create and manifest sprawl.

I have tried through my work on Twitter
to establish a clear connection between
with Koch and other GOP attack and voter suppression efforts
and the desire of these forces to sustain the oppressive order they have created

Sprawl is its signature
but because most of us value aspects of it
it is a terribly difficult task
to link the highway you drive to work on
with the suppression at the polls
If you visit here you will find a good deal
that relates to this problem
and how to solve it

This election may be the biggest
step to connecting the dots
that we have had
bigger than 2008

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis
The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …

Obama Ads Should Be Grass Roots Cinema Verite

ShortFormContent at Blogger: How President Obama Can Win Christian Conservatives:

'via Blog this'

To counter the invidious efforts of Karl Rove and the Brothers Koch, simple videos of everyday people expressing gratitude for specific results from specific things that the President has achieved will create a signature response that will turn the tables on the Super PACs.

There could be an intro that flags lies distortions and anonymous attacks as unreal and even criminal and a cut to what is real, recognizable and not anonymous I am (name). I have lived here in (name) for (time). Thanks to (President Obama's (name) Act ... and so forth for ten seconds. Close with a continuation of the story narrated over evocative images and simple acoustic music.

This would be a fantastic way to counter the attacks on the President. For every specific attack, a video that shows the truth. And grass roots people who intend to vote for the President.
