obama’s “my son” comment regarding Trayvon’s tragic slaying was a distasteful attempt at redirecting Public emotion to support his campaign.
Don’t politicize people’s deaths – don’t even get close to it. Their lives amounted to more than offering someone else, even the president, a tasteless opportunity to try to manipulate public sentiment.
A Capital Idea Part 113: A Model for Progress
I think I may be nearing the end of my capital ideas blog post series. I say I think I may be nearing its end, because new topics keep popping up. I want to endeavor in this post and the next few most likely, to discuss how to build a lasting social model for continuous progress in the economic and political realms.
Two obscenely wealthy brothers-playing with peoples lives for fun? HMMMMM? ANYBODY EVER SEE -"Trading Places"?
Peace my friends
My condolences are extended to the family and friends. And now I have to look inward at myself and those like me. This tragic death of what appeared to be a spotless victim, a young American looking forward to a dream. In my opinion this does not call for atonement, this is a call for change. This is a call for self-evaluation. Is this what we want for ourselves, more gun violence. It is the responsibility of the right wing fear mongers and proponents for deregulation of gun laws, to account for the laws they have created.
They can't count votes correctly, their laws apparently allow for sanctioned killings with no police investigation, and I am thinking that Florida acts more like a lawless territory than a State. Can't we give America's Banana Republic a time out? Possibly re-organize it in with Puerto Rico when they vote for Statehood in November? Then, at least we wouldn't have the expense of a new flag. Give the panhandle to the adjoining States and let San Juan administrate the lower half?
A Youtube Plea For Peace From an Isreali Father
Please share this, it's a video that should go viral. Go to youtube and comment, I did:
Meanwhile Obama is in Cushing, Oklahoma praising the construction of the Keystone Pipeline! This at +11F!!
God help us All: Obama in Oklahoma extolling the virtues of more Keystone Pipeline when the earth is already faced with +11F.
We’ve probably already obliterated ourselves by plunging the globe into the Holocene-Anthrocene thermal maximum with such gusto that to even consider such a “game over” climate move like the Keystone Pipeline is pure, unadulterated suicide.
Just joined to tell Tom I'm going to call him "Tom Oreilly" or "Bill Hartmann" from now on.
Has anyone thought of nationalizing the oil industry here in the US? I think it is a very good idea for several reasons. For one, we would get Wall Street out of our back pockets. Two, it would give us control of the amounts being drilled, refined, and distributed. Three, it would reduce foriegn dependence on oil. And it would enhance national security by reducing big moneys strangle hold on our government.
