Apathy, The American Way? | Collateral Murder

I know, many people are in denial; they don’t want to hear it. It is easier to turn a blind eye, look the other way, deny it . . . But it is happening, and for obvious reasons: Those who think they can entrust their children’s future to the entity who is in power right now are in delusion. Check this:  A Collateral Murder  (And for exposing the truth, private Manning is awaiting trial and Julian Assange (WikiLeaks) extradition.) 

But in spite of everything, the occupation is growing. In spite of the mainstream media hiding it, the Occupy Movement is thriving . . . Look! It is global!

 14 Arrested at Cruz Home, Vowing Needless Foreclosure “Stops Here” 

“We will reoccupy the Cruz home AGAIN tomorrow at 2pm on the one month anniversary of our 24/7 eviction blockade at the Cruz family home. Freddie Mac, PNC Bank, and Mayor Rybak have a choice to make: waste more city resources arresting peaceful protesters, or work to keep the Cruz family in their home. WE SHALL NOT BE MOVED.” 

Wake up! for whatever we sow, we shall also reap. Let’s clean house!

Memorial Day | Remembering the Fallen!

Greetings! I am a veteran. I was lucky I wasn’t sent to Viet Nam. Lucky, not only because I probably would have died there, or worse, but also because it was one of the most filthy and unjust wars we have ever fought. It left millions of Vietnamese dead, and about 58,000 American troops buried . . . for nothing! To satisfy the greed and hunger for power of  a few people in power, our “puppet leaders” plunged the country into war after JFK was assassinated. The Speech That Got John F. Kennedy Killed | YouTube

Remember?

The current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are not that much different.  My Lai is still happening there. Private Manning is in jail for doing his duty and denouncing war crimes: A Collateral Murder (Watch these videos to watch our troops engaging the “enemy” and an eyewitness’ (soldier) account – third video)

Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces, and we should honor their commitment. But we must admit that we have been deceived. There is no one threatening our freedom in Iraq or Afghanistan. AE 9/11 Truth There was no one threatening our freedom in Viet Nam, for that matter.  We have been cannon fodder for the 1%. They are making big money on our blood, and on our enemies‘  blood. And, really, there is no honor in dying for such scum. Let’s bring our troops back. Let’s save their lives and our country’s future. Let’s demand their return. Let’s be veterans for peace!

The enemy is not “out there.” It is inside, stealing our democracy and freedom: A Central Bank’s Scheme

Why did they die?

Have a good Memorial Day weekend . . . but don’t forget. And don’t be fooled.

Message to Occupy Wall Street | Justice | 9/11

Occupy!

I found this in a recent OccupyWallStreet post, and I agree.

The First Feminist General Assembly is Thursday, May 17 at 6:30 in Washington Square Park. “Gender justice is crucial to economic justice, say the organizers. No society is truly democratic without sexual and gender-identity freedom.” 

I agree. But I can’t understand the lack of interest OWS has in the  e v i d e n c e (no theory or speculation here: AE 9/11 Truthshowing that 9/11 was done by controlled demolition. Isn’t justice needed for a “truly democratic society?” Two wars are being waged due to 9/11 . . . and look what I found in the news (Democracy Now) recently:

“The United States has issued what could be its most forceful threat to date of a potential attack on Iran. Speaking at a public event in Jerusalem, the U.S. ambassador to Israel, Dan Shapiro, said the Obama administration has made preparations for military action. Shapiro said the United States would prefer a peaceful resolution to the standoff over Iran’s nuclear activities. But he added: “That doesn’t mean that the [military] option is not fully available. And not just available, but it’s ready. The necessary planning has been done to ensure that it’s ready.”

Don’t you think that we should all be concerned? Shouldn’t Occupy Wall Street  use that e v i d e n c e  to educate the police and the military so that they will join us in the pursuit of peace and justice? 9/11 is not a thing of the past; the perpetrators are still free and planning . . . the enemy, whoever it is, is inside. We must use all our resources. We must all work together for a better world. Over 100 police officers died on 9/11. Let’s educate them! And let’s find out who was behind 9/11.

You wouldn’t know it from watching CNN, but thousands of people have gathered this week in Chicago and elsewhere to peacefully express their indignation at a political system dominated by war and austerity.

Papago Park I Hole in the Rock | Wilko

Papago Park

Hole in the Rock

Papago Park, a view from the hole in the rock, it is cool here.

You can fish in this small lake, but swimming is not allowed.

And today is 104 degrees fahrenheit, so a jump in the lake would have been nice. Nothing like the desert to help you appreciate water. While still in Tucson I was walking one day to the University’s library. Tucson is not as hot as Phoenix, but that day the temperature  was about 100 degrees, and, after walking several blocks, I had to stop for water at Wilko, one of the restaurants at University Boulevard (Park and University). The beautiful young lady at the bar pulled out an ice-cold bottle of water and an equally ice-cold glass, and I drank two glasses of that water. Ah! Nothing like the desert to help you appreciate nothing other than water!

In scottsdale is quiet now, but there is action here, in November they were fighting ALEC

OccupyPhoenix has moved to Scottsdale, Az for the next four days, and will join with Salt River Pima (Akimel O’odham) Tohono O’odham (formerly Papago, of the sublime basket-making) First Americans to protest against the American Legislative Exchange Council’s (ALEC) “States and Nation Policy Summit” in the Phoenix suburb of Scottsdale November 29 – December 3.

You all know of ALEC, but here’s a review for minds that have too many Bad Guys to remember in these days that cause constant head-swiveling to keep up with their dastardly plans and deeds.  From the website alecexposed.com:”

“ALEC is not a lobby; it is not a front group. It is much more powerful than that. Through ALEC, behind closed doors, corporations hand state legislators the changes to the law they desire that directly benefit their bottom line. Along with legislators, corporations have membership in ALEC. Corporations sit on all nine ALEC task forces and vote with legislators to approve “model” bills. They have their own corporate governing board which meets jointly with the legislative board. (ALEC says that corporations do not vote on the board.) Corporations fund almost all of ALEC’s operations. Participating legislators, overwhelmingly conservative Republicans, then bring those proposals home and introduce them in statehouses across the land as their own brilliant ideas and important public policy innovations—without disclosing that corporations crafted and voted on the bills. ALEC boasts that it has over 1,000 of these bills introduced by legislative members every year, with one in every five of them enacted into law. ALEC describes itself as a “unique,” “unparalleled” and “unmatched” organization. We agree. It is as if a state legislature had been reconstituted, yet corporations had pushed the people out the door.”
