Time for Plan B
This is quite a pickle we’ve got ourselves into. ... The war in Ukraine is more than absurd – it is a sin against the planet. Old Thinking by Old Men Lacking Vision. ... Here we are with the information that the planet is teetering on the brink of climate devastation and maybe beyond a point of no return unless urgent measures are taken. And at the same time – war is happening – not just killing human beings but adding to the injury to Mother Earth. ... Plus, there is the threat of nuclear weapons being on “stand by”. What does that mean “stand by”? ... It certainly does not mean stand down or stand away or “Stand by Me”....

Can You Handle The Truth?
Solon: With this current adventure in Afghanistan in August 2021 with the Taliban apparently taking over the country in mere days, one has to wonder how this happened? Twenty years in country and then collapse. Twenty years almost to the day where it all started with September 11, 2021 and the War On Terror. One fact stands out - the American people have been lied to and deceived about this situation. Where is the truth or perhaps the bigger question - how long has this been going on ... this misrepresentation of the facts. The lies! ... Where did the lies start?...

George Floyd should still be alive.
Indigenous Environmental Network: Some may feel that justice has been served in this case but there is still much more work to be done. Despite the verdict in Chauvin’s case, the system that allowed for the murder of George Floyd is still intact. ... We need a system that dismantles the systems of white supremacy and invests in healing, care, safety, and true justice for all. ... Liberation for Black lives means liberation for us all...

Stand with Minorities - Be a Friend
As a white person it helps if you realize that minorities are treated differently by the white power structure and they as a minority are aware of that. Though hanging with a minority sometimes causes you to loose your privileged status, as well. ... Maybe it doesn't always help to support your minority friend but it can't hurt and it's still a good idea!...

November 22, 1963 - Another Day That Will Live in Infamy
It has been fifty six years and still no closure. We have lived whole lifetimes without knowing who was involved and why the killing of John Kennedy was perpetrated. Is it possible for an honest person to come forward now who knows the story and reveal what has long been hidden? Or have all the ones possible been eliminated and only the conspirators remain.... Perhaps now more than ever - truth is needed!(Reprinted)...

Who Killed Martin Luther King?
Do you remember Dick Nixon on tape about the Warren report into JFK's assasination- "That it was the biggest hoax ever perpetuated on the American people"? Well believing James Earl Ray as a lone assassin killed King has got to be the second biggest hoax! (Reprinted every year until justice is done) ... Update 2019: A Call to Reinvestigate American Assassinations -- President John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr., and Senator Robert F. Kennedy.

No On Gorsuch
This time demands an outstanding human being who is truly independent, not beholding to any group or entity. And certainly not beholding to the likes of Trump , Phil Anschutz and the Heritage Foundation. ... The future of the world is in the hands of a group of “smart guys” with no morals or ethics and little understanding ... The test for Gorsuch is whether he can stand up to the tidal wave that is coming or “dance with the one that brought him”... No confidence in that...

"Earth Day" is really a bit of a joke - on us, really. The earth is not part owner of this movement. The earth is not trying to save itself. It just is. Look around - the earth is doing its part. It's sending messages - almost everyday.
(How about this one - the same day as "Good Friday"

End of a Dynasty?
A few weeks before the assassination of JFK in 1963, there appeared in the Washington Post a short article about the Kennedy Dynasty and the presidency. It laid out a possible scenario that John would serve two terms, Robert two terms and then Ted two terms as president...And with the death of Ted this week the dynasty question appears to be settled.

Excel Energy Is A Crock
Denver, Colorado: Without electricity and heat for 36 hours in sub freezing temperatures. Blown off by Excel Energy customer service. Even after locating the problem electrical pole with blown fuses - still disregarded. Insulted. Time for a revolution!

Laying Off Workers Not The Right Answer
"The easy answer is to lay off the "workers" - after all you can't stop fixed costs like electricity, land and water. And "Wall Street" loves to see that answer - stock value automatically goes up. But hasn't "Wall Street" been proven seriously wrong lately?...Here is another approach...

They Lie - You Buy (it)
Now this same government (Remember Iraq-WMDs) is saying that they need 700 billion to save the economy. The details are sketchy as to what that money buys. But it looks like it's going directly to Wall Street, probably some banks or investment companies....Something doesn't seem right...But you buy it!
