Love is Progressive Part 24: The Revolution Will Be Twittered

A revolution is coming, whether we know it or not.

Those who won't want it, won't see it coming,

Nor will those who are politically unaware;

Even many revolutionaries won't see it coming.

Bur once it starts, there will be no stopping it.

.................................................................................

It all starts so innocuously,

With a computer.

Who would have thought it?

$3.7 tril divided by $300 per solar panel=35 solar panels for every american for the price of war

What will it take?

Instead of sending young Americans to die in a war that has cost an estimated 3.7 trillion dollars thus far, was based on false evidence, has made us less safe, has caused psychological illness in our soldiers, and also alienated us from people around the world, I would like everybody to understand what we could have done with 3.7 trillion dollars to make us more safe as a country, keep the troops home, and help keep our air and water clean.

Arctic Sea Ice problem actually worse than thought.

And Oblahblah approves a highly risky pipeline for the extremely dirty Canadian Tar Sands, thanks a lot Enbridge! Our politicians, lobbyists, and executives that contributed to climate collapse need to be prosecuted.

Coming Food Insecurity DEMANDS Wall St be banned from trading in Commodities, Food stuffs, Water, and otherwise inputs to Agriculture and Consumer Goods.

Already, the 99% is unable to afford Wall St’s parasitic participation in necessary goods and services. The situation is growing worse by the day as our global environment continues to degrade.

International Concentration of Wealth: the cost of Obama’s Ukraine policies are being born by the 99% and not the 1% who stand to benefit from the billions in modernization contracts Ukraine represents.

Who has Russia imposed counter sanctions against, and who stands to profit if Ukraine turns to the West for modernization?

In America war profiteering is legal when there is no one in our government willing to prosecute for it because it benefits the rich.

Unbridled Free Market or Predator State: Nestle bullying struggling small towns to turn over all their fresh water.

The town of Fryeburg, Maine, is not big — but it's got a huge problem on its hands. Nestlé is pushing the town to turn over its water system in a contract that could last as long as 45 years! Now, we're in the midst of an expensive legal battle to protect Fryeburg's water and stop this contract from going through.

BIBLICAL JUSTIFICATIONS FOR ISRAELI WAR CRIMES

KILLING OF CHILDREN

LEVITICUS 26:27-29 God threatened hostility, punishing people for their sins "seven times over," making them eat the flesh of their sons and daughters.

NUMBERS 31:17-18 God commanded Moses to kill all of the male Midianite children and "kill every woman who has slept with a man, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man." The virgins were presumably raped.

It was always Obama's plan to loot Afghanistan for its minerals.

Using the American military to enrich the 1%'s Corporations is unethical even if it results in campaign contributions.
