The sooner Americans figure out there's no two party system the better.  There is only one party and that my friends is a corporate party that serves the 1% and the corporations.  Our government has been taken over by corporate forces that have no loyalty to any nation but only to profit and they will exploit all humanity and the planet until collapse.  Because like Chris Hedges says, "The only word they know is, "More!"


Stop NDAA by Jill Dalton

But here's the rub we live on a finite planet with finite resources.  As corporate forces continue to rape and pillage mother earth we'll all be fighting for scraps.  The so-called elites and the 1% believe their money will save them and for a time it probably will but rest assured when there's no clean water or clean air and the planet's completely radio active from all the nuclear spills and the oceans are polluted by the oil spills and only used as a dumping ground for plastic and chemical wastes no amount of money will save these greedy bastards.  They're going down just like the rest of us.  The only difference is they'll be shocked, as they believe their own hype.

But alas, we have to keep bearing witness to these atrocities even when nobody else does.  It's no time to get discouraged because my dream is one-day the 100 th monkey will figure out what's really going on and then we'll all be washing our coconuts.  Until then one must keep the faith, keep showing up, standing up and speaking truth to power.

On my way home I again pass by the transit workers and this time stop to listen to their grievances.  They get it.  Our 29 billion dollar mayor is trying to break their union.  I encourage them, "Don't let them do it.  Stay strong."


Bill of Rights by Jill Dalton

Throughout history all totalitarian regimes have eventually turned on their own citizens.  The violence always comes home to roost but like Gandhi said,

"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you and then you win."
