Love Is Love No Matter How We Love

Love is Progressive Part 25: Love is Love No Matter How We Love

True love has at least an element of unconditionality. This means accepting and loving people as they are. It also means that everyone is different, not only in who they are, but in how they love. We should all understand that and be grateful for each person's contributions and loving spirit, no matter what form it takes.

Declaration of InDefendence

let us unite...

The split between progressives and regressives. Which one do you fall into?

There is obviously a split between the enlightened who understand the destructive power of grouping people together in order to create division (divide and conquer) and those still stuck in the Republican/Democrat, Black White, our team good/their team bad paradigm. I would have to say at this point, anyone still saying our team good, their team bad is either getting paid to do it or is simply refusing to look at history.

"We began planning the Revolutionary War in order to issue our own money again" -Benjamin Franklin

Yikes, more conspiracy theory presidents

“Whoever controls the volume of money in our country is absolute master
of all industry and commerce…when you realize that the entire system is
very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the
top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and
depression originate.”
- James Garfield, 20th President Of U.S. Assassinated 1881

IF MILITARY ADS CONTAINED HEALTH WARNINGS

Spoof on "Army Strong" TV Commercial (seen on Free Speech TV)

THE COMMERCIAL:

"The dictionary defines 'strong'
As having moral or intellectual power
As striking or superior of its kind
But with all due respect to Webster,
There's strong--and then there's Army strong."

THE SPOOF:

(If military ads carried health warnings).

The United States Army may not be right for everyone.

WHY WE DON'T NEED TO START ANY NEW WARS

The War on Terror never ends…it just goes on and on my friend…some people started fighting it not knowing what it was…and they’ll continue fighting it forever just because…the War on Terror never ends…it just goes on and on my friend…some people started fighting it not knowing what it was…and they’ll continue fighting it forever just because…the War on Terror never ends…it just goes on and on my friend…some people started fighting it not knowing what it was…and they’ll continue fighting it forever

TOO MUCH IS NEVER ENOUGH

The total amount of gold in the world is enough to fill three-and-a-half Olympic-sized swimming pools,
or 308,000 cubic feet or 2,310,000 U.S. gallons, AND I WANT IT ALL!!!

And I want the world’s money supply, too, all six and a half quadrillion dollars…

A COLLECTION OF PHONY STATISTICS FOR POLITICIANS AND OTHER PROFESSIONAL LIARS.

These easy-to-use phony statistics can be used by politicians and liars alike with dramatic effects on fooling people.

Disclaimer. As part of my continuing mission to misinform and confuse as many people as I can, I always back up all my false claims with false statistics. You must believe these at your own risk.

STUPIDITY TAX PLAN

Since lowering taxes, especially on the wealthy, has left most governments with a shortage of money, I thought of a good idea to solve this problem—a stupidity tax. Whether or not this would serve as a deterrent to stupidity would remain to be seen, however, there could be no doubt, considering the amount of stupidity in the world, that this would be a way of solving our financial crises. After all, a little stupidity repeated millions and billions of times goes a long way.

(THE UPDATED) RECIPE FOR DISASTER

RECIPE FOR DISASTER

Collect the following ingredients (can all be found in the U.S.):

CORPORATIONS MAY BE PEOPLE AFTER ALL

When the Supreme Court decided that “corporations are people” my immediate reaction was that this was complete nonsense. How could a corporation be a people? A corporation is after all an abstract entity, not a person. But then I started to realize that there are some things that corporations do that are distinctly human and I changed my mind, sort of.

Why income tax is not necessary to fund the federal government

Can this statement possibly be true? In order to answer this question, Americans must first understand what is the source of the money that funds the government and where it goes. Contrary to the sound bites issued by the two mainstream political parties, the reality of how the system actually works will not only open your eyes, but hopefully stimulate the American people to demand that the thievery underway come to an end.

PETITION: EPA poised to approve staggeringly large Pebble Mine, nearly as deep as the Grand Canyon, larger than Manhattan, with waste that would fill a football stadium up to 3,900 times.

And the people behind the project are stone cold crooks without a shadow of doubt.

This from protect our national parks:

BULLSHIT NPR!: To push down the price of oil you can either let Wall St trade off expectations of an increase in domestic production (supply), or nationalize the energy markets, have government set the price, and skip the environmental devastation involve

Nationalized energy markets will go a long way to lessen the amount of negative externalities – that have real cash value - the People are stuck with under having to undertake measures domestically that will convince Wall St traders to lower their trading price expectations.

First Columbia took on their drug lords, now they're taking on their billionaires...why can't we?

America’s billionaires are driving this nation’s poverty epidemic. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

As we speak, working-class Americans are getting screwed over by policies that favor the wealthy elite, and leave everyone else in the dust. As a result, more and more Americans are living in poverty.
