Terrorism In America......Organized Stalking.....Post # 2..............Letter to President Obama

Dear Mr. President,

Please stop ignoring the hundreds of thousands of victims of multiple stalkers.

Why does the Office For Victims of Crime offer assistance to victims of single stalkers, but not to victims of multiple stalkers/

De-criminalizing Marijuana Could Save Lives of Some--this Community Servant, for Example

Sad story this, http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/44316064/ns/us_news-crime_and_courts/?GT1=43001. Further, I wonder if the accused is actually believed by the police to be a suspect, or if he is simply a "target of convenience," a drifter sort with a record and no alibi. hmmmm.

Have Republicans Ruined the American Dream?

I believe the widening wealth inequality gap caused by Republicans, with Reaganomics being wildly embraced by the wealthy in the Republican Party, has put the American Dream on a fast path to ruination. Actually not only Americans but the industrialized nations of the EU face a much more bleak future. Atlantic Magazine saying "two thirds of all new income in America went to the top 1% of Americans between 2002 and 2007" tells us we are in trouble" since CIA Factbook also tells us "we are a more unequal nation than the Ivory Coast, Pakistan, Ethiopa and Kagakhstan!

Oil & Gas Industry doing society a great service by stimulating economy with violent weather?

The Unwitting Fortune Tellers

Toward the end of my stay in Taiwan, I wanted to go out the front door of Tung-Hong with my camera, just to take pictures to record what it is like there. My wife said that might make the place too identifiable, although it looked about like most other places in Kaohsiung, so I did not. I realized at that point that perhaps it would be better for me to record mental pictures of Taiwan, although it's really hard to summarize. I could imagine going out the door and walking a short distance to the convenience store nearby, or the restaurant, or the fish market.

fair taxation is driving me insane...

The whole ponit of a progressive tax, inheritance tax and capital gains tax is to PREVENT THE MASSING OF WEALTH.

There is no fairness, it is pure necessity if a free market system is to work.......all arguments against it are pure bullshit.

Republicans Band from Labor Day Parade in Wausau, Wisconsin

The event is organized and paid for in large part by unions. It's their party and republicans aren't supposed to show up. It is assumed that the ban has been extended to Jeffrey Immelt of GE the White House's job czar.

Earth's credit card has been maxed out!

If Earth's resources were a credit card, we have already maxed out our entire allocation for this year. The think thank Global Footprint Network announced that August 19th was “Earth Overshoot Day,” meaning that all the resources we use after that day exceed what our planet can produce in a single year.
