"Stop The Machine!" October2011.org


Check out this website.  I'm going to try to go to Washington DC October 6th and stay as long as possible which won't be too long but maybe more people will come and take over for those of us who can't stay.  And maybe we can get back and relieve other people who have to go home.  Maybe we can keep a large presence in the capitol until they have to listen to us!
We the People, don't want our country fighting three wars.  We think there are better ways to spend our money.  We could spend our money to provide the healthcare every other civilized country provides its citizens.  Or how about a decent college or technical school education for anyone who wants one.  We could develop energy systems that did not cause climate change.  We went to the moon once.  We could create a high speed rail and reduce fuel emissions.  We could do all that and more if we just quit going to war so the rich can make even more money.
Something is very wrong.  America has become the Big Bully on the playground that thinks she can push everyone around and get her way.  The United States can and does clear a pathway for any and every large corporation and bank to go into any weaker country and buy up and control all resources including workers so the very rich can keep getting richer by polluting, enslaving, controlling, raping, wasting and confiscating land from the foreign citizens who need it to grow their own food instead of producing various commodities such as Palm nuts to export for oil to be used in junk food.
Look and see who is going to be in Washington on Oct. 6th.  Several of my Heroes will be there.  Bill Moyers and Chris Hedges for example.  Maybe I'll see you there.

There Comes a Time

I love this speech from the late 50's, early 60's.  Is this about the war, civil rights?  I'm not sure.  I better find that information for you.  But meanwhile give it a look.

This is inspiring!  This is what I wish we heard more of.  Here is a man who speaks truth.  Please watch this video.
