Are These Anti Romney Videos Effective?

Mitt Romney versus Reality - YouTube:

'via Blog this'

This one makes clear that Romney will say anything without regard for truth. Let's amend that. He's a bald-faced liar. I actually think the lies are served up to him by his staff. His free lance speech is his Achilles Heel.

BUT.

Is this video effective? I think not. Find a Republican like Susan Eisenhower to relay the content of this video and you have a winner. I wish I could be in the middle of this. I win prizes for what I do. My only problem is I am old and no one answers my emails. If this post falls on anyone with influence, it contains gold - for free.  .

How Real Entrepreneurs Beat Dreary Forecasts

Some Dreary Forecasts From Recovery Skeptics - NYTimes.com:
Premises: There is a goldmine in re-conceptualizing society. Beyond sprawl. Beyond cars. Beyond oil. Beyond stratification.
Entrepreneurial visionaries could: Reclaim sprawl. Move beyond car glut. Move beyond oil. Appeal to the market for a move beyond stratification toward face to face community.
Fallout from the first movement toward this notion: New communities dense enough to enable a viable local economy. Shopping beyond today - kiosks in walkable communities woman-ed  by experts with computers and big screens able to find anything in a given category and have it delivered ASAP. Same pattern for most everything including health and education and much recreation. Communities where everyone lives, works and plays. As these proliferate they take on character and are easily reached by public transpoortation between such communities.

We always need a Jane Jacobs reminder

Jane Jacobs « Project for Public Spaces - Placemaking for Communities: "“With humility and common sense, she taught the world how to understand and value cities through direct observation, persistent questioning and discovery. Her faith in the wisdom of local citizens lives on in the civic battles in which she participated and her wisdom lives on in the writing of her nine seminal books.” — The Center for the Living City at Purchase College"

Poetic Revolution Time Revaluing as We Go

A world structured as ours is Has no need to fall In violence between Two sides The mass of us are all in the same boat No matter where we live We have the means We only need the consciousness To counter the disparity Remove distractions Start to march from here to here From there to there Revaluing as we go Poetic revolution time

Can poetry vanquish poverty indeed it can

Can poetry vanquish poverty
Indeed it can
Indeed it will and soon
We're at a point where poetry and logic
Can prevail




Pervasive Poetry Will Win the World this Century

Little is said of global poverty Acute in Yemen not unknown next door All puppet strings that play at keeping it at bay Will soon fall to pervasive poetry

Convenient falsehood to obscure what's true

Romance is used by business to help Convince us that romance makes all things well Convenient falsehood to obscure what's true That romance is hardly the top value The top value is non-idolatry Then helpfulness and then democracy Then tolerance these four are Abba's way Not for holidays for every day

I'll celebrate when women stop being stoned

I'll celebrate when women stop being stoned And when our jails do not dehumanize And when society is structured to mute crime And raise the banner of new neighborhood And people bent on trading bad for good If this sounds bitter please it's not There's more to love than romance we all know Too bad we take so long to learn the plot How many marriages was sheer romance ago

Romantic love evolved from tougher times

Romantic love evolved from tougher times Whose vestiges remain around the world In abuse patriarchy honor crimes It's time a flag of freedom be unfurled
