Area 51 – US Secret X-Base

Posted in Commercial Corporations, History, Military, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on October 23, 2019 by Drogo

Area 51 is part of the Nevada Test Site area, run by Top-Secret Military and Industrial Corporations. The facilities use scientists and engineers to work on weapons and ‘ufo’ vehicles. ‘U.F.O.’ simply means ‘unidentified flying object’. Some speculate that aliens are responsible for many ufos; but even if only humans are operating ufos (even just the ones that have been documented by the military and scientific civilians), Area 51 and related operations would still be worth studying.

The New Red Scare

Posted in Commercial Corporations, Legal / Laws, news, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 22, 2019 by Drogo

The new Red Scare in America is not being pushed by the Republicans who did so last time (headed by McCarthy). The new foreign agent propaganda was spread by Hillary’s DNC. The corporate lies are aimed at environmentalists and peace-activists that would never vote for corporate sell-outs, and would rather vote Green Party, Independent, or stay home in protest. Jill Stein visited Russia along with many other politicians, because politicians often travel to other countries and try to network with allies and even meet with enemies; but the DNC started a rumor that somehow Stein had more Russian power than the Clintons who did millions of dollars worth of deals with Russians. The DNC propaganda story is that somehow through vague propaganda, without actually hacking votes, Russia won the election for Trump and also controls the Green Party. Hillary Clinton actually tried again to push this narrative herself on CNN, by smearing Tulsi Gabbard and Jill Stein as ‘Russian assets’ (or agents). There is less evidence to even make those claims, than there would be evidence to charge Clinton with foreign influence. Part of the reason to accuse others, can be to distract attention from the truth about Clinton and DNC crimes. Russia is not even Communist anymore, it is Capitalist like us, and does business with rich plutocrats like the Clintons and Trumps all the time.

Does anyone out there have a memory of at least one person reading one of Hillary Clinton’s emails that said she wanted to push the “Russia story” long before her DNC did? It may have said something like “Perhaps we should use the ‘Russia narrative’ against them?”, suggesting that they push propaganda about Russia before they started smearing Jill Stein, and before Russia-Gate. I have had one other person say they remember hearing that too, but have not heard reference about since after the new Red Scare by the DNC began. If you know anything about her early reference to their propaganda plan, please comment below.

Capitalism vs Communism Death Tolls

Posted in Critical Commentary of Civilization, Economics, History, Military, Politics, Sustainability, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 11, 2019 by Drogo

The genocide totals by Communist and Fascist regimes should be considered in the historic context of the political labels as a response to Capitalism, and why that was. Both ideologies operated economically as National Capitalism, of state market authoritarian control (totalitarianism). Genocide death tolls in this article include mass murder, war fatalities, and fatal causalities by various means (armed and unarmed killings).

Communism (Marxism in general) was a response to the horrors of Capitalism (wage exploitation, resource wars, and mass poverty). Marxists wanted democratic worker owned industry and government, not the dictatorships that they got. Fascism (National Industry) was the loyal child of Capitalism (not free-market, but monopolistic state crony capitalism run like a corporation, anti-democracy).

If we blame Nazis for starting WW2 then all military deaths on both sides (Allies + Axis) can be blamed on Fascism, which would bring the total killings for Fascists (4 regimes) to over 55 million (30m civilian genocide + 25m WW2 military). Communists still come in highest (25 regimes) at 75-100 million. Again all of them functioned as Capitalist Dictatorships, with very little social welfare for the masses, compared to the money spent on elites (business bosses and paid politicians) or the militaries.

Blaming economic-political systems gets messy, because how they function may not represent the ideology of their label. Capitalism and Christianity are responsible for more deaths than Communism and Atheism, as they existed for longer periods with more countries including Monarchies. So we could just add up all the death tolls of countries that call themselves Capitalist, and not include Fascist genocides.

ATTEMPTING THE IMPOSSIBLE – CALCULATING CAPITALISM’S DEATH TOLL

“Ignoring big wars due to capitalism and only focusing on US action and only including one year for things that are systemic (ie. poverty), which is being really damn conservative because Japan engaged in brutal imperialism, we get a total of 205,000,000 killed directly or indirectly because of capitalism.” – Guerilla Ontology

“Capitalist Genocide includes, but is not limited to:

United States:

US intervention in Latin America: 6.3 million dead
Invasion of Philippines: 650,000-3 million dead
Afghanistan: 1.2 million dead
Vietnam War: 10 million dead
Korean War: 10 million dead
Yugoslavia: 300,000 dead
Iran-Iraq War (US funding both sides): 1 million dead
US intervention in Congo: 5 million dead
US Civil War (financial vs land capitalists) 650,000 dead
Native American genocide: 95 million dead
African slave trade: 150 million dead
Indonesian purges against communists: 1 million dead (underestimate)
US Bombing of Laos and Cambodia: at least 1 million dead
US backed dictators: at least a few million

Britain:

Bengal Famine: 10 million dead
British Occupation of India: 20 million dead
Famine in Held British India: 30 million
Irish potato famine (British farmers could have helped): 1.5 million

Japanese imperialism in China and Asia: 12 million
South African apartheid: 3.5 million
Spanish Civil War: 350,000
French colonies: 1 million dead

Note that this does not include the number of children and adults alike in the First World, Second World, or Third World who have died from hunger and lack of access to basic needs of life. In total, the death toll of capitalism exceeds 1 billion. ” – Death Tolls of Socialism And Capitalism

What has killed more people: Communism or Capitalism?

600,000,000 Capitalist killings are added in the 3rd article.

*

Communist genocide probably includes military battle deaths, but not Capitalist countries who use some form of Marxism (USA, England, etc), but does include Communist countries who use National Capitalism economically, and some forms of State Marxism internally for distribution. Communism death tolls are usually over-estimated by combining 25 dictatorial regimes that have called themselves ‘Communist’ or ‘Socialist’.

According to R. J. Rummel‘s book Death by Government (1994), about 110 million people, foreign and domestic, were killed by communist democide from 1900 to 1987.

In his introduction to the Black Book of Communism (1999), Stéphane Courtois gave a “rough approximation, based on unofficial estimates” approaching 100 million killed.

According to Benjamin Valentino in 2005, the number of non-combatants killed by communist regimes in the Soviet Union, People’s Republic of China and Cambodia alone ranged from a low of 21 million to a high of 70 million.

In 2011, Matthew White published his rough total of 70 million “people who died under communist regimes from execution, labor camps, famine, ethnic cleansing, and desperate flight in leaky boats”, not counting those killed in wars.

Communist Mass Killings (genocides) total = 70-100 million apx.

So the largest estimate for Capitalism is 1.6 Billion (1,600,000,000) killings, which is much higher than the newer political-economic governments of Communism, Socialism, or Fascism. We could be generous to both and say that Communism and Capitalism have both killed over 200 million people combined, by discounting the history of Capitalism before 1900 and after 1950, and not blaming Communists or Fascist Capitalists for WW2.

The Decline of American White Men

Posted in Critical Commentary of Civilization, Economics, jobs, Medical, Military, news, relationships, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 5, 2019 by Drogo

Post-Modern White Male Destruction: Causes of Our Resentment, Anger, & Despair

American white men are self-destructing more than ever before since WW2 due to a return to Great Depression economic poverty for the masses, and most of our wealth going to the rich elites. We comprise a large percentage of the US population, but despite not being a minority, we are increasingly killing ourselves and others in a desperate struggle to maintain our ‘dominant legacy’ (social profile expectations based on cultural history). If you know white men who are acting more desperate, hooked on hard meth or heroin, and more masochist and sadistic please know it is not just you, it is part of a systemic problem that has to do with self worth decline compared to the last generation. Decreasing wealth for white men, compounded by mortgage and student debt which decimated the middle-class after years of subjugation working for free to fund institutions, we find ourselves less likely to support ourselves, and certainly not mates or family dependents. These problems of expectation affect our honor, and we hate ourselves and want to blame other poor people within shooting range. Before debating this issue, it is important to study the statistics of sustainability.

More people die from poverty than terrorism. According to TED speaker Dan Gilbert, more people die from poverty than if a terrorist detonated a nuke; statistically ‘Why We Make Bad Decisions‘.  Also ‘Poverty isn’t a lack of character; it’s a lack of cash‘ according to Rutger Bregman, and other humanists.  [ Poverty stats ]

Mass incarceration does not help. Even if blacks are proportionately in prison more, we have more of our whole population in jail than any other country. Between 1980 and 2015, the number of people incarcerated in America increased from roughly 500,000 to over 2 million. The Bureau of Justice Statistics reports that 35% of state prisoners are white, 38% are black, and 21% are Hispanic. Our national population of poverty is enforced with taxes that pay for the prisons, police, and military. [ Stats of mass incarceration: NAACP ‘Criminal Justice Facts‘;  Sentencing Project;  USA has the largest ‘Prison Population‘ in the World (click on the chart to sort = 2,121,600) ]

Yes meth and heroin are largely a white people problem. ‘Christian White Men’ are more likely to use those hard drugs in poverty today. [ Stats for drug addiction: AAC; MH Race Stats for Drug Addiction; NIH ‘Drug Treatment Facts‘; NCBI Race & Gender Studies

Our average life span has been reduced according to critical studies. Men already died younger on average than women, but now whites in general are living shorter lives, despite medical advances. [ NPR ‘Deaths of Despair’ ]

Poverty causes many to join the Military, where we still feel suicidal despite guaranteed pay and benefits; because the ‘War On Terror’ is perpetual and demoralizing (see MIC). Never forget all the soldier suicides during the endless war on terror. Since 2001 apx 22 die a day (144,000+) RIP. Women are more likely to report mental fatigue, so that needs to be accounted for in the raw data; because men are more likely to act out rather than report themselves for problems (‘macho pride’ social stereo-type issue). [ Veteran Suicides by State ‘Once A Soldier’; Veteran Suicide Hotline 1-800-273-8255; ‘Playing with War Wisdom‘ ]

Yes Trump is a symptom of our problem.  [ ‘REAL Reasons For Trump’s Impeachment‘ Redacted Tonight; Trump is a con-artist scamming bigoted rapist Chump ]

Yes mass shootings are symptoms of our problems. ‘Christian White Men’ are terrorists more often than Muslims or anyone else in America. [ Statistics of Mass Shootings by Race ]

Access to guns and explosives for psychotic men in every state, with no substantial health care plan for mental illness does not help.  [ Gun & Explosive stats – ATF ]

Less jobs paying a living wage, relative to the cost of living, is at the heart of our problem [Michael Moore’s films; Noam Chomsky’s ‘Requiem for the American Dream‘]. Companies prefer to use migrant workers who work for less (and automation), rather than pay middle-class wages. Capitalist corporations corrupt government against the good of the people (aka general population). Despite all these problems with our system, there is some hope for us to increase our standards of living proposed by the Next System Project (NSP), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), and Bernie Sanders with the Green New Deal.  [ NSP Democratic Investment Bank; AOC GND; Sanders’ GND ]

Speak out about the larger problems, and surprise neo-fascist racists by explaining why minorities are not to blame for big problems that affect the majority of the population (which includes minorities). Surprise! Our economic problems are not solved by race wars, although the rich elites who own corporations are fine with neo-fascists like Trump because race wars benefit them. Be smart, don’t blame race for a plutocratic system that keeps us all down. We all benefit when we come together and cooperate to make change as ‘We The People’!

GREEN NEW DEAL – Our Revolution 2019

Posted in Climate Change, Cooperatives / Communities / Networks / Travels, Economics, Environmentalism, Ethics & Morals, Legal / Laws, news, Organic Development, Politics, Sustainability, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 30, 2019 by Drogo

SCOD Transcript from the Sanders for President 2020 Website

The Green New Deal (GND) concept is public domain and so there are various versions (AOC, Sanders, SCOD) as thesis theories that propose comprehensive plans. This SCOD version is published as part of the Sanders’ ‘Our Revolution’ (evolved from Occupy) movement. Shout out to Standing Rock! [Listen to the Audio Recording of the GND read by Drogo Empedocles]

 

Statement Introduction and Assumptions:

The climate crisis is the single greatest challenge facing our country, The United States of America (USA); and also our single greatest opportunity to build a more sustainable egalitarian future in America, but we must act immediately. Climate change is a global emergency. The Amazon rainforest is burning, and Greenland’s ice shelf is melting. People across the world are already experiencing the deadly consequences of climate change; as extreme weather events like heat waves, wildfires, droughts, floods, and hurricanes have disturbed or destroyed millions of lives in communities, ecosystems, and economies. Poor lower working class and homeless people have borne this burden; many of them were formerly members of the devastated middle class who lost their jobs, families, homes, and property during the Great Recession. The scientific community tells us we have about a decade to transform our energy system away from fossil fuels, towards greater energy efficiency and sustainable renewable energy. We are going to make this planet great again, and healthy and habitable for us, our children, grandchildren, and future generations. Rising temperatures and extreme weather compounded by unrestrained crony corporate political power at the highest levels in government have created health and financial emergencies, causing many Americans to be disabled or commit suicide (see military statistics for soldier suicides and lethal drug epidemics). We must guarantee health care, housing, and a good-paying job to every American, especially to those who have been historically excluded from economic security (aka the basics of modern survival).

The scope of the challenge ahead shares similarities with the crisis faced by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) in the 1940s. FDR’s ‘New Deal’ was successful at creating a larger middle class by improving the livelihoods of lower class workers. Battling World War 2 on two fronts, from East to West, the United States came together within 3 years and restructured the entire economy in order to win the war and defeat fascism (corporate government). As president, Bernie Sanders will boldly direct our nationalist patriotic power to embrace the moral imperative of addressing environmental terrorism threats. Environmental threats affect us more than other forms of terrorism due to corporations that create climate change pollution, poison natural resources, and weaponize racism (Coal Mine Wars). Over-population combined with reduction of resources and wealth for the majority of the population has led to support for hateful mass murder (public shootings). Our environment is not just natural, but also social, cultural, economic, and political (artificial). Those artificial aspects of our environment are dependent on people, so we must mobilize millions of people across the country in support of the Green New Deal (The GND depends on us). From the Oval Office to the streets, Bernie will help generate cooperative ‘Our Revolution’ spirit for changing our system (We The People). We can gather sustainable will power together for energy and transportation technology, and economic progress. Bernie Sanders has the courage, the vision, and the record to face down the greed of fossil fuel executives, and the millionaire and billionaire upper classes who have sabotaged environmental action. While being a millionaire now, President Bernie will accept his share of national responsibility (wealth taxes), and welcome the hatred of those among his upper class who refuse to sacrifice to solve crises they helped create. Bernie will lead our country in this Green New Deal movement, and bring the world together to defeat the existing threats of climate change and corporate control. Please join the GND movement with us!

President, Bernie Sanders Will Avert Climate Catastrophe and Create 20 Million Jobs

Main Proposal Plan:

As president, Bernie Sanders will launch the decade of the Green New Deal, a ten-year, nationwide mobilization centered around justice and equity during which climate change will be factored into virtually every area of policy, from immigration to trade to foreign policy and beyond. This plan outlines some of the most significant goals we have set and steps we will take during this mobilization, including (SCOD consolidated bullet points):

  1. Create 100% Renewable Energy – by expanding alternative sources for electricity and transportation by no later than 2030 and complete decarbonization by 2050; consistent with the United Nations (UN) Panel on Climate Change goals; by expanding the existing federal Power Marketing Administrations (PMA) to build new solar, wind, water, and geothermal energy infra-structure.
  1. Create 20 million new green jobs needed to solve the climate crisis. These jobs will be good paying, union jobs with strong benefits and safety standards in steel and auto manufacturing, construction, energy efficiency retrofitting, coding and server farms, and renewable power plants. We will also create millions of jobs in sustainable agriculture, engineering, a reimagined and expanded Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC), fully fund the Land and Water Conservation Corps, and preserve our public lands.
  1. Declare National Emergency for Transition – federal spending to be transferred from creating pollution, to ending pollution. Climate Change and the Great Recession are National Emergencies, so we will invest $16.3 trillion for public mobilization of resources to include more minority communities and democracy in the work-place.
  1. Transition workers from fossil fuels to renewable energy. Workers often are neglected by corporations and politicians. We will guarantee five years of a worker’s current salary, housing assistance, job training, health care, pension support, and priority job placement for any displaced worker, as well as early retirement support for those who need it.
  1. Save families money – weatherizing homes, lowering energy bills, building better public transportation, providing grants and trade-in programs for families and small businesses to purchase high-efficiency electric vehicles, and rebuilding our inefficient and crumbling infrastructure, including deploying universal, affordable high-speed internet.
  1. Supporting small family farms – by investing in ecologically regenerative and sustainable agriculture. This plan will transform our agricultural system to fight climate change with agro-ecology, provide perma-culture local foods, and break the corporate stranglehold on farmers and ranchers. [see Revitalizing Rural America plan (RRA)]
  1. Justice for frontline communities – special help for under-resourced groups, communities of color, Native Americans, people with disabilities, children and the elderly through a $40 billion Climate Justice Resiliency Fund (CJRF); providing those border or fence-line communities a just transition including real jobs, resilient infrastructure, economic development.
  1. Reduce global emissions throughout the world – by providing $200 billion to the Green Climate Fund (GCF), rejoining the Paris Agreement, and reasserting US international leadership in the global fight against climate change.
  1. US emission reductions – The United States has for over a century spewed carbon pollution emissions into the atmosphere in order to gain economic standing in the world. Therefore, we have an outsized obligation to help less industrialized nations meet their targets while improving quality of life. We will reduce domestic emissions by at least 71 percent by 2030 and reduce emissions among less industrialized nations by 36 percent by 2030; the total equivalent of reducing our domestic emissions by 161%.
  1. Massive investments in research and development. We will invest in public research to drastically reduce the cost of energy storage, electric vehicles, and make our plastic more sustainable through advanced chemistry. [see free Community College plan]
  1. This GND plan pays for itself over 15 years. – by Making the fossil fuel industry pay for their pollution, through litigation, fees, and taxes, and eliminating federal fossil fuel subsidies; by Generating revenue from the wholesale of energy produced by the regional Power Marketing Authorities. Revenues will be collected from 2023-2035, and after 2035 electricity will be virtually free, aside from operations and maintenance costs.; by Scaling back military spending on maintaining global oil dependence.; by Collecting new income tax revenue from the 20 million new jobs created by the plan.; by Reduced need for federal and state safety net spending due to the creation of millions of good-paying, unionized jobs – Making the wealthy and large corporations pay their fair share. The cost of inaction is unacceptable. Economists estimate that if we do not take action, we will lose $34.5 trillion in economic activity by the end of the century. And the benefits are enormous:  by taking bold and decisive action, we will save $2.9 trillion over 10 years, $21 trillion over 30 years, and $70.4 trillion over 80 years. Also the ecological value of preserving living green resources should be calculated into our current economy.
  1. Environmental Economy vs Corporate Greed – We cannot accomplish any of these goals without taking on the fossil fuel billionaires whose greed lies at the very heart of the climate crisis. These executives have spent hundreds of millions of dollars protecting their profits at the expense of our future, and they will do whatever it takes to squeeze every last penny out of the Earth. Bernie promises to go further than any other presidential candidate in history to end the fossil fuel industry’s greed, including by making the industry pay for its pollution and prosecuting it for the damage it has caused. Most importantly, we must build an unprecedented grassroots movement that is powerful enough to take them on, and win. Young people, advocates, tribes, cities and states all over this country have already begun this important work, and we will continue to follow their lead. Regional Economic Development – Provide targeted regional economic development. Communities especially in need of assistance during our transition to a clean energy economy will be eligible for an additional funding for economic development investments through regional commissions and authorities. Our federal regional commissions make targeted economic development investments in rural America. These commissions have funded projects that enhance workforce competitiveness, build and repair infrastructure, and increase community capacity like broadband projects, clean drinking water, organic farming, and energy efficiency.

Funding will be distributed Regionally as follows:

  • $2.53 billion for the Appalachian Regional Commission
  • $506.4 million for the Delta Regional Authority
  • $304 million for the Denali Commission
  • $405 million for the Northern Border Regional Commission
  • $94 million for the Southeast Crescent Regional Commission 
  • $2.02 billion for Economic Development Assistance Programs
  • Infrastructure investments for impacted communities. We will provide $130 billion for counties impacted by climate change with funding for water, broadband, and electric grid infrastructure investments.
  • Connect consumers with local farms and healthy foods. Establish a victory lawns and gardens initiative through a $36 billion investment to help urban, rural, and suburban Americans transform their lawns into food-producing or reforested spaces that sequester carbon and save water. Lawns account for 40 million acres in America, and we spend tens of billions of dollars each year taking care of them each year. Let’s reinvest that money in climate smart practices that encourage everyone to be a part of the solution.
  • Invest $14.7 billion in cooperatively owned grocery stores. Local groceries and co-ops are more likely to buy local products, which will help grow markets for farmers to sell their goods. We will also use these funds to bring grocery stores to food deserts ensuring all people have access to healthy, local food. 
  • Incentivize schools to procure locally produced foods. Institutional purchasing can be a huge boost to local producers and build local farm economies. We will give a meal incentive for schools that acquire at least 30 percent of their food from local sources. Invest $31 billion in local food processing, including slaughter and dairy processing. Rampant consolidation in processing has led to a lack of facilities for small-scale, local producers. Investing in local facilities will help smaller producers to compete with the Tyson Foods of the world. Allow meat slaughtered at state inspected facilities to be sold across state lines, to compete with imported meat.

Trumpism: Symptoms of Corporate Crisis

Posted in Artificial Chemical Products, Climate Change, Critical Commentary of Civilization, Ethics & Morals, Legal / Laws, news, Sustainability, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 25, 2019 by Drogo

Trump is a symptom of a larger crony corporate problem.

Sanders earns votes from workers because he gets the problems.

This economy really sucks, and has gotten worse every year since the 1990s for most people as far as cost of living and flow of lower and middle class income goes. The unemployment rate does not account for the larger numbers of people under-employed, unemployed and do not get unemployment benefits, and those not included in those other categories in Federal Records, so the real number of people in America who cannot pay their bills is much higher than is officially recognized.

Global Warming means mass murder. People need to know that industries who fuel Global Climate Change are committing mass murder, due to the political and environmental destabilizing that happens in extreme conditions on all levels of civilization, into the future for as long as the artificially caused imbalance happens. Overall global temperatures rise, climate pattern become more erratic, polar ice melts, sea levels rise, coasts go under water, political migrant crises and harder working conditions for outside labor cause economic and social civil wars, and the problems compound over decades and generations (see Bill Nye or scientists who can speak to non-scientists about it, if you don’t like Al Gore).

 

How does Trump compare to other presidents? Who else dismantled safety regulations and protection studies for the environment and all products (cutting EPA, USDA, NASA, NOAA, NPS, Dept of Education)?? Trump publicly sides with Nazis against Peace Activists which makes him worse than most modern presidents, and possibly Nixon considering Nixon gave in and created the EPA from public pressure to try to control pollution. Trump is an inside trader, con man who has committed fraud multiple times on large scales, profiting from being president in violation of the emoluments clause of the constitution, and then there are his cases of rape and pedophilia that are on official court record by the victims. People accuse Hillary of murder based on a theory I looked into, but it did not seem worse than what Trump may have done (Epstein) as he is clearly capable and has incited violence at his rallies and in tweets, and there is senate testimony that he threatens people mafia style in his regular business deals. Oh yeah he signed the Dakota Pipeline into effect as soon as he got in office, despite the victory of Standing Rock, and promotes continuing global warming, which means mass murder due to worsening conditions combined with race wars he promotes (Border Concentration Camps & Wall & Ice Raids).

Trumpism is not just about Trump, he is just the chump puppet face of corporate corruption for a world wide phenomenon of nationalist unrest and economic inequality. Other countries already had nationalist reactionary problems, and now have their own versions of Trump, emboldened by his words and actions. Fascism is in power and on the rise in more and more other nations. Italy, Greece, England (Brexit), Spain, China, Hong Kong, Central and South America… all have conservative nationalist movements that want to use violence on minorities and migrants (bigotry) as red herrings for systemic problems that have other causes. Even countries like Mexico and Canada have neo-liberal corporate politicians that want to cut down more forests and keep polluting (more oil pipe-lines) for Capitalism, although they do not want to use violence as much as neo-conservatives. Therefore it is clear that grassroots democracy and Green New Deals are the only way ahead for progressive humanists, regardless of party politics.

Keep Looking Up Sunflowers!

Sunflowers are not afraid to look proudly into the sky at the Sun. We can handle the truth of our political reality, and take democratic responsibility. RISE UP children of the SUN!!! The sky is our limit. We have the right to grow organic gardens! We have the right to vote for who we want! We have the right to pursue our dreams!

The Federal ‘REAL ID’ program in Maryland is forcing every legal citizen to show additional proof they are not illegal, because they messed up, rather than do some research and only call in those that are suspected as illegal. In Nazi Germany they started with the Jews, but made every one live under martial law. The real terrorists are the ones perpetuating violence on a mass scale in the world for profit. Keep looking up beautiful sunflowers.

The World Wars gave national profits to corporations, while we killed each-other in other countries. To know why it happened, we should look at the corporations that profited, even on the losing sides of the world wars. I think Ike was talking about them when he mentioned the MIC. Our private prisons are like fascist concentration camps, because they profit from mass incarceration. Our fossil fuel companies control our politicians using lobbyists, denying our votes for green jobs and less pollution. We allow a few people to take our national wealth and use it against us.

For the sake of freedom, we should not give up hope. We should exercise the freedoms we still have, and push against those being taken away from us. Examine the cases, investigate news claims, and research history so that you can feel more confident you are acting on behalf of your own interests, and the greater good. Patriotism means defending the rights of the people, sometimes against the bosses. Many of us have already protested, boycotted, and participated in Our Revolution (The Peace Movement). Dare to hope, dream, and keep taking action in broad daylight!!!
