I have 7 fans: Become a Fan. You'll get emails whenever I post articles on OpEdNews
Vince is a freelance writer from Arizona, a contributing writer for many web sites, and a lifetime founding member of the Alliance of Atomic Veterans. The 21st century, once so full of shining promise, now threatens to force countless millions of us at home and abroad into a dark abyss of languishing poverty and silent servitude; a lowly prodigy of painful struggle and suffering that could stream for generations to come. I'm wishing for a miracle, before it is too late, the masses will figure it out and will stand as one and roar. So, pass the word -- it's past time to take back what is ours -- the American Dream where the pursuit of happiness, the ability to live in a free and peaceful nation is a reality. We bought it, and we paid for it. It's time to take it back.

The Sword of Injustice: A Western Shoshone Tragedy Vs Nevada Millionaire Rancher Cliven Bundy
Now that Bundy got his cattle back, will the Koch Brothers quietly come to his aid and pay his fines for him? Or, perhaps some other filthy rich fat cat such as Sheldon Adelson? Will they both gallop in on their white horses with cash registers in their saddlebags? If so, expect a lot of future political posturing to be exploited out of this ordeal.

Why Stopping The Ward Valley Nuclear Waste Dump Is Worth Remembering...
Members of the Ft. Mohave Indian Tribe have always known the true value of gratitude, love and respect for our sacred Mother Earth and all life that lives upon it. This is also well known in Shamanic traditions from all cultures on all continents. However, too many of us have not yet learned to live in harmony with nature. It is imperative that we do so if we are to survive in a world worth living.

The Passing of Anthony Guarisco
IAAV/AAV was a 501(c)3 non profit organization that worked on behalf of Veterans who participated in the 1940s and '50s in U.S. atmospheric nuclear weapons testing and were injured as a result of their exposure to radiation released from the weapon detonations. Anthony Guarisco, an atomic veteran who honorably served in both WWII and Korea, was the founder and director.
Friday, August 16, 2013 Regardless of Screeching Media Banter, Whistleblowers are our Bravest Heroes
Currently, Bradley Manning is being thoroughly ostracized in the mainstream media that is working overtime to demonize him as a confused, abused nut-job with conflicting gender identity issues. Never mind the fact that he's an honorable U.S. soldier (with a conscience) who blew-the-whistle and exposed U.S. hypocrisy.

Edward Snowden Has Awakened the Sleeping Giant
Thanks to the sobering revelations of NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, the world has been given a glimpse of the abuse of power (and trust) that our governments have breached. Indeed, the gravity of this "hijacking of humanity" is a crime against "life" itself.

America is Dying (But don't blame me, I'm just the messenger)
I thought this was the home of the brave and land of the free! Why do we seem content to roll over for this crap? For some time now, I have seen this fundamental shift quickly escalate. I have watched my fellow citizens eagerly give-up huge swaths of liberty and freedom in exchange for vague promises of increased security. Why? Have we lost all common sense along with our druthers?

Pawns Are Always Expendable When Played
If I could ask the Highest Deity for one small favor, one simple concession--it would be that all politicians who support or voted in favor of going to war -- including the Generals who think it's cool to play God with human lives on their chessboard of death via covert action or otherwise--that they attend each soldier's funeral and look into the eyes of each family member and explain to them why their loved ones are dead!

Evaluating The Grim And Finding Viable Solutions
Our leaders and news media clowns all try to convince us that "The terrorists hate us for our freedoms." But those of us who did our homework know better. You can't have a foreign policy objective that dictates marching around the globe with jackboots taking (by force) whatever you want to satisfy stockholders, without some blow-back.

No More Mr. Nice Guy: Enough is ENOUGH!
Turn off the TV. Grow a garden. Do not let our children enlist in the military. Do not work for the corporations of the military industrial complex. Be wise consumers and do not invest your hard-earned money with them. Get involved and support grassroots organizations that represent peace and goodwill.
Thursday, April 19, 2012 Realize Your True Potential and Let's Create A Society Worth Living!
At this point in time we are almost completely dependent on a corrupt corporate apparatus for our survival, an apparatus that places profits before people. And, It has nothing at all to do with the true nature of man and our relationship to this earth or to each other, yet we depend upon it for our food, for our housing, for our information and even for our entertainment.

Poverty in America -- From Riches to Rags
Like a pebble dropped in a pond, everything we do affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others. The choices we make will have far-reaching consequences. Each of us carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse.

Occupy With a Vengeance! Change is a Messy Affair, But it Has to be Done
Change is a messy affair, but it has be done regardless of the opposition we face. Amen. Take pride in knowing the silver-spoon devils will soon reap the full effect of our public discourse. The great American Occupation has only started and Revolution is now eminent.
Thursday, November 3, 2011 The Importance Of The Occupy Movement
People of all walks of life are highly motivated -- students, teachers, seniors, workers, the unemployed, the homeless, veterans, civilians, unions and the list is endless. All have joined hands to voice their frustration, their grievances at a corrupt system that begs for change.

Us against Them
There are six billion souls on this planet and, if we unite under one banner and join the world revolution that's currently sweeping the globe, we can gain the needed footing to remove these parasites of insanity from our presence.

There and Back Again: Sobering Thoughts about the Nuclear Madness We All Face
It makes little or no difference if exposure comes from an "atomic warhead" or from a "nuclear reactor meltdown." The end result is the same -- people suffer horribly and die. And just like the world revolution that's currently being waged around the globe with hardly a whisper in mainstream media, it will not be televised or reported.

The Audacity of Hopelessness and Betrayal
After enduring eight years of Bush hypocrisy, Senator Barack Obama easily took the Oval Office in 2008 on a hope and a prayer for "change." Well, here we are in the summer of 2011. Our country thirstier than ever for that change he spoke of.
Friday, June 10, 2011 Solar Storms, CME's, and All Things Considered. Are you Ready?
When it comes to being prepared for possible disasters, most people mistakenly take the "wait and see" stance and then wonder why the response is feeble at best and pathetic at the least. Remember Katrina? Can you imagine what would happen if the whole U.S. electrical grid went down for any length of time? Do you think the government is prepared? Think again.
Friday, December 24, 2010 Kayoko's Cherry Trees: A Testament Of Why The A-Bomb should Never Be Dropped Again.
With all the nuclear weapons ready to launch at a minute's notice around the globe, and in lieu of recent events involving North and South Korea flexing their military muscle; especially with North Korea threatening to drop a nuclear bomb on South Korea -- this true story should serve as a lesson for all humanity.

Consumers Beware: Monsanto Is A Global Multinational Biotech-Killer
As the inventor of genetically modified (GMO) crops and food products, Monsanto is a major producer of agriculture (GMO) seeds specifically designed to yield only "sterile" seeds from farmers' next harvests; thus, causing economic and environmental disaster for farmers at home and abroad.

Never Forget The Lessons Of Yesterday For The Sake Of Tomorrow
Americans are a powerful force when we combine our efforts under one banner. Get involved. Spread the word. We must close this Godforsaken nuclear nuthatch once and for all before more radiated Kool-Aid is doled out or before we destroy not only ourselves but the hopes of those not yet born.
Thursday, February 5, 2009 Basement Zombie Spews More Hate And Politics of Fear...
Sorry, Dick, your fear-mongering no longer has the desired effect. The time of hateful redundancy is over. It's time to look ahead and push forward with this new administration to birth a hopeful tomorrow that will eventually offer promise and prosperity.

Tons of Bricks Lighter
Following behind Bush is proving to be no easy task. Obama definitely inherited the biggest mess this nation has ever seen. I welcome his wise leadership in this challenging time. And...I am grateful to have him grace the helm to fix our nation's reputation, economy and humanity.

John McCain In A "Nutshell"-- Philanderer, War Pimp, Bush Policy Clone, and Neocon Liar...
I could go on about the many neocon atrocities McCain has performed throughout his career as a Senator and war pimp for the Bush administration. It's an endless track record -- most of which is public record, easily found for those willing to take the time. So, for all you undecided skeptics, by all means, review his voting record for it is unbridled proof of how he constantly sold us out to K-street lobbyists.
Friday, August 15, 2008 The 7th Anniversary Of 9/11 And The Cycle Of War
a single day should not go by without all of us doing everything we can to inform others of what the heck is going on. Get involved, or get ready to reap a methodical whirlwind that promises to deliver more progressive death and destruction.

The Plan Is To Get Everyone "Micro-Chipped"
In this authoritarian driven 21st century so full of numerous Orwellian creations, a long developed scientific control tactic may soon be realized in our lifetime in order to steal everyone's personal freedom. Yes, the powers that be want to implant tiny little microchips into our bodies for surveillance purposes, behavior manipulation, and more...
Thursday, June 12, 2008 The Long Road Ahead Will Be Hard-Earned
Understand this, the Federal Reserve scam is no foolish conspiracy theory. It's real. It exists. It's illegal. And it's still currently conducting business today on American soil. And its owners are getting rich beyond belief. Rest assured, this will continue unabated unless we unite against them to take back what is ours -- our country, our lives and our sacred financial freedom -- all of which will lie in limbo until we do.

Could Iran's New "Oil Bourse" Spark a War with the US or Israel?
It truly is unfortunate for us that real soon, US war ships will probably start launching smart missiles and mini nukes at Iran because of nervous Wall Street investors and crazy war hawks...and that in itself is an "anchor drag" of magnanimous misfortune for everyone involved.
