Courage Earth

I've titled this Courage Earth for two reasons: one, for it's connection to The Center for Courage and Renewal; the other because it will take courage to accomplish what is required for the healing of our planet.

Obama is unfit to hold public office.

And the solution is not to re-elect him and give him a fresh cess pool of Democrats in Congress.

We need a third party candidate for President.

The experience of Both Parties incumbents – including obama - is grounded in Cash based politics and that makes them unacceptable.

And this makes them unfit to hold public office in the New 99% America.

Bullying is really, really awful ...

except, of course, when it's religous based:

'But the [Michigan anti-bullying] bill also has language that says requirements don't "prohibit a statement of a sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction of a school employee, school volunteer, pupil, or a pupil's parent or guardian."'

Less manufacturing jobs is a good thing!

Hardly a day goes by without Thom lamenting the loss of the U.S. manufacturing base, and with it, jobs. Usually the blame is placed on China, or Reaganomics.

It's nice, frequently heated rhetoric. But it's also utter nonsense.
