NATIONALIZE RISK AND PRIVATIZE PROFIT
Somehow it feels like corruption when activists are charged under RICO laws, while corporate so-called accident risk is nationalized and profits are privatized.
First we might wish to understand those we determine are “the other”.
VIEW FROM THE HEART
A welcome reminder from an associate-in-advocacy from the anti-fracking efforts, about reality
FARM WORKERS AND DENIAL
NYS has passed legislation that would mandate overtime pay for farm workers after 40-hours-per week. Some local lawmakers have expressed concern that lack of understanding about the erratic time schedules in farm work will place undue burdens upon farm employers.
The Green Party conversations attempt an exchange between people with differing views in a clear exchange of ideas.
IGNORANCE IS AN EXCUSE
Perhaps the stories we tell ourselves are the deflection we need to go on.
MIDDLEMEN OF WWIII
We will find the middlemen between the producers and the consumers, “earning” wealth.
FREE SPEECH POLICING
While money is called Free Speech, Free Speech is held as suspicious behavior by Establishment.
INDUSTRIAL EXPERIMENT ON HUMANITY
As a child of the 50’s, childhood diabetes wasn’t typical. Today reports suggest childhood diabetes is growing. A personal opine is a memory from around 1970 in which one first began to hear about the interjection of corporate interests into the public school system that was explained as profiting both industry and the school system. At that time the first industrial inspiration was soda machines in school systems. So what about the health care costs that devolved onto the general public due to atrocious nutritional habits, while the public school system and industry profited? This seems a perfect setup for public/private partnerships that are so advertised as promoting economic well being. Another definition could be nationalizing risk while privatizing profit.
COURAGE TO CHANGE
Change requires courage and imagination. Propaganda helps to ensure the public have neither.
DO IT LIKE A GIRL
How’s patriarchy going for us?

WHEN THE AMERICAN DREAM BECOMES ENTITLEMENTS
In one’s imagination, the Ohio train derailment tragedy is the physical manifestation of the impact on Americans by the end-days of capitalism. The American Dream became entitlements following the Establishment rigging of government for their own enrichment.
WHAT WE MUSTN’T TALK ABOUT
Is dictatorship when open reporting and citizen communication is stifled? Money isn’t Speech but can stifle Free Speech. Why aren’t more people talking about Citizens United?
THE VALUE OF UFO’S
The value of the recent UFO concerns in the USA that has an infinitesimal chance of being aliens from outside of our universe, is the attention-grabbing ability that may accrue toward those who may otherwise be running around in red caps and annoying others. A significant value is to shine light into the dark corner of government secrecy that is out of sync with a democracy.
