TREEHUGGER AND HISTORY

That the phrase treehugger originated byway of followers of Hindu and possibly again byway of followers of Buddhism come as no surprise. read more

PRIORITIZE HEALTH

The US government seems more involved in policing the globe than protecting the US public.  Lack of a 1-payer universal health care policy is an example, at the same time the Pentagon is absorbing the wealth of the nation with no accountability and in FACT with disturbing evidence of having misplaced $22,000,000,000,000 (with a T) of taxpayer money.  C-Span hosted a discussion in which a caller questioned the reason for foreign aid to Israel, that is a wealthy nation.  Where is that money going and to what end?  Why is a wealthy foreign nation prioritized over a US public that is in need? read more

CORPORATE RULE

Conversations about tariffs are long overdue.  Tariffs that support sale of US products are sensible.  When the products add to Climate Change as compared to products from foreign nations, an obvious problem has arisen.  While the Trump tariffs seem to have been imposed on only a targeted group of products, it is of interest that after imposition prices of many products manufactured in foreign nations automatically rose, even if the Trump tariff wasn’t imposed upon those particular products. read more

DEFINE MONEY LAUNDERING

One would love to talk about Climate Change; but first one must wade through the corruption. read more

TRADITIONS

World peace is a good way to honor our Veterans and to challenge Climate Change, by the way. read more

FREEDOM ISN’T FREE

Too often freedom for one person comes at the liability of another.  Socialism could be a label to suggest balancing away from exploitation of this type, if it must be labeled.  Another phrase could be respect for natural, human, and civil rights.  Either way, everyone should have a voice in defining freedom, not only the hierarchy. read more

NATIVE WISDOM BEYOND CLIMATE CHANGE

C-Span hosted a call-in discussion on the topic of age limits for political-office holders.  This seems to bring to mind cultures that respect the experience of elders while young people are leaders. Americans need look no further for a model than Native communities.  But principles need to be measured in terms of wisdom and experience as compared to terms of greed and privilege.  If this isn’t the case, a critical limitation on knowledge stops us in 1619, as seems to be the case. read more

QUESTION DICTATORSHIP

The US public has been hearing endless descriptions of life in our nation, and the exceptional supremacy over lives of other people around the globe.  In FACT, the rest of the globe is often so informed of US exceptionalism.  MSM that represents the D&R duopoly are the mouthpiece for this information.  But more and more we begin to hear alternative views that seem legitimate when we consider there must be more than one view.  Consider a few other perspectives… read more

TRY LOGIC


In a Pyramid Scheme economy, logic isn’t required. read more

DEFINE FREE SPEECH

Do we hand over our Constitutional rights too compliantly?  As Affirmative Action is discussed by the Supreme Court, is this seriously more important than, for example, free and functional communication among humanity?  Indoctrination lends itself to self censorship.   read more

WHAT THEY DO, NOT WHAT THEY SAY

Does anyone believe the Establishment-imposed sanctions by elite US politicians do harm to any other than poor people?  This includes the poor people of the USA  as sanctions circle back onto the US public byway of high fuel prices and especially byway of, for example, the Trump tariff that was sold as an imposition upon China but is in FACT a tax on products manufactured outside of the USA and sold to the US public, when manufacturing has been outlawed in the USA by bad trade agreements inflicted by politicians at the behest of their corporate campaign donors promoted by Citizens United.  The collaboration center for negotiation of such laws as have imposed inflation (price gouging) on the US public, may be found at www.alec.org. read more

THE WORLD ACCORDING TO ENTRENCHED INTERESTS


Climate Change and exploitation is probably due to a lack of imagination by Americans along with a troubling propensity to rally to the support of entrenched interests.   read more

SELF DETERMINATION

A reason I love NYS is that it is a hotbed of responsible citizens.  This is curious alongside a propensity to vote into positions of power, patriarchal Establishment types who seem to disregard local community wishes.  Authoritarianism conflicts with democracy.   read more

INDIGENOUS = HUMANITY

Simplicity probably offers the most clarity and this is FACTual in language as much as in anything.  Is it a coincidence that the English-speaking world has been at the forefront of exploitation and imperialism and that the language is intricate, while less aggressive societies are known to have fewer words but perhaps with more emphasis on emotion?  Who knows, but this is an interesting topic of thought on a dreamy Fall day.  May we still be capable of dreaming. read more

CLIMATE CHANGE, HURRICANE, AND WAR

Some people see the origin of Creation less as a man with a beard and wearing a night gown, standing in the clouds, and more like cause and effect orchestrated by each individual.  A C-Span caller the other day said the hurricane was a judgment on Florida for shipping migrants to Martha’s Vineyard. read more
