Corporations contributing most to Climate Change being taxed and tasked with its obstruction
Government skipping vacations to adequately fund Public Education and research for Alzheimer's, Cancers and Zika cures

Imagine, progress is accepting both individual and global accountability for broken treaties, Guantanamo, and refugees fleeing wars.
Electing Barack Obama president would end racial discrimination
Exceptionalism is stealing Corn (& Thanksgiving) from Native Americans
15 million American children going to bed without food and our increasingly extreme weather, as prologue to food & water wars
Imagine America's progress without the political timing of a Congress grandstanding permission to sue Saudi Arabia -- without also considering indicting the Bush/Cheney Administration for every member of our military who died, was physically disabled or mentally & psychologically damaged because of its Mushroom Cloud deceit.
Imagine not being a nation of individuals too often maneuvered into ours not to reason why, ours but to do and die. Perhaps honoring those who tragically lost lives and loved ones fifteen years ago, is to be ever more vigilant in questioning those in authority who offer only talking points and cliche's.
Corporate owned Politicians and media repeat the mantra, America changed forever on September 11, 2001 -- but have you ever heard a sound-bite that suggests why? All of us know suicide is becoming an American epidemic -- especially among Veterans and Millennials, but why?
Why rising suicide rates, drug overdoses, community tensions, gun violence? Why our diminished self-certainty and loss of faith in our sustainability? Was it 9/11 or how oil wars for Wall Street profits used 9/11?
Is the Alt-Right a troubling flashback of suppressed memories like, Wounded Knee, the 1964 murder of three young Civil Rights workers or the 2003 invasion of a country that had nothing to do with 9/11?
