Does Love trump Hate?

Marianne Williamson spoke the truth about love trumping hate.

But she could have said it better.

The media is poking fun of Marianne Williamson's response to the debate's last question. But a lot of what she said during the debate was right on. We need to take a bigger view of things.

The truth, the bigger picture, is we are really at a dynamic evolutionary tipping point in our world. We could say we're at the changing of the Ages, at the End Times, at an evolutionary tipping point. But we need to create excitement about change rather than fear.

1. We have to leave behind an old view of the world that is no longer relevant in our sophisticated technological world. We need a new cultural paradigm.

2. We have to leave behind the dehumanizing patriarchal belief that women and people of color are less worthy than white men. We're all equal and yet different. Embrace the difference.

3. We have to stop being a consumer society in a capitalistic system and learn to live a more balanced, sustainable lifestyle.

4. We have to become caretakers of our planet and her resources rather than plunderers of her treasures.

5. We have to reduce the population which means making birth control available to everyone.

- Advertisement -

6. We have to stop wars, which are wasteful and cruel. A sign of a perverted masculine need to protect and defend. Now, we cloak it in those needs, but in reality, we go to war to demand our own way. To dominate others. For greed.

7. We have to balance the economy so that 1% of the population doesn't control 90% of the wealth. The economy should only be a tool for a culture -- not its center. We have put the economy in the center of our concerns and not the people, who should be there. It's our government after all, isn't it?

Why Democrats Need to learn the Art of Slogans.

You mean like how the fraud NObama used "Hope and Change" to get elected and then proceeded to do the exact opposite for the 99% which led directly to trump? Luckily I saw through his snake oil in 2008.

Here's a Dem slogan:

"Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me."

Here you go, Janet


According to the United States Flag Code, hanging the flag upside down is a signal that the owner of the flag is in extreme danger. The person's life or property has to be threatened. If the flag is hung upside down, military personnel recognize this as a call for help.

Thanks, 911TRUTH. This makes the homeowner's display even more appropriate, IMO. (But it's likely he'll get in trouble)

If 100 million of us did the same thing (this silent, non-violent scream), do you think the military would come to the aid of their country?

Definitely a risky thought. But I've long thought that awakened, non-compliant police and military might be our only hope. Because they are the only ones with the scary fire-power and the means of arrest.

It's a long shot, I know. What do you think?

I agree. There are wonderful police and military people who will not fight the revolution but will peacefully defend others the people who are protesting, just as the Water Defenders protected the pipeline protestors.


Hopefully, they'll be our warriors.

Those 100M would probably be named as 'Enemies of the State' and treated according to the Patriot Act provisions as enemy combatants for daring not to comply.

Would our glorious 'heroes' support such a protest? Doubtful, very doubtful.

Just today Nike is being vilified over a pair of patriotic sneakers they stopped selling, so flying a flag upside down would be looked upon as treason.

I don't doubt you for a second. That's why we would, in my fantasy, need millions. Then maybe, with or without 'heroes,' they wouldn't catch, jail or kill us all. But, of course, we must be willing to die... or worse.


I think so many of us are struggling against a deep sense of futility. It is a pit I fall into often and it makes me understand those who just don't want to know. I'm sick of witnessing suffering.

It appears to be too late; I hope it isn't.

Reply to Janet Supriano:   New Content

I am glad it occurred to me. If I had thought of it before I would have replied to 911TRUTH with an upside down flag a long time ago.

911TRUTH, I once read the meaning of the flag flying upside down was a statement this country was in trouble. I did not know the meaning was stated in a "flag code" I did not know existed that said the owner was in extreme danger. The "owner" of the flag is the United States of America. I think, I mean I know, this country is in danger for a whole host of reasons; not danger from another country, danger from what we have done and continue to do to ourselves. We are destroying ourselves.

I posted it for two reasons. One, it was to say to 911TRUTH I am on your side. Two, this article by Cathy Lynn was inviting suggestions for a Dem slogan. I am suggesting it as a slogan for this country. What an easy way for 100 million or more to make a statement. But of course, while there are a lot of citizens that understand how screwed up things are, it is only a small percentage of the total number. By far most still think as long as there is football on Saturdays and Sundays and they can watch Netflix 'till after midnight, and they cannot see the forest for the trees and still think 9/11 was done by Muslims, things are just rosy. Some, fly the flag upright all year long.

The third of my two reasons, I think a great slogan would be, "I Ain't Marching Anymore."

It could be rephrased, "WE Ain't Marching Anymore!"

It's legal to BURN the flag, as an expression of free speech, isn't it?!

Why would it be "disrespectful" to simply hang it in a different orientation?

It's just a flag.

I agree with you, Cathy, that Marianne is on to something by broadening the conversation, changing the language of political debate, and calling us to our Deeper Selves. So, how about: "Make Americans Prosperous Again" (MAPA)? That would give Democrats a chance to retell the story of Roosevelt's New Deal and its success for working class Americans. It would also set up conversation about the promise of a Green New Deal that would benefit ALL Americans in a similar way. Finally, it would contrast sharply with Trump's MAGA whose neoliberalism benefits only the few.

What a great song for the sinking ship we are on!

It would have played great on the Titanic. Maybe it would have cheered everybody up. They wouldn't have been saying "Why Me?" They would instead have been listening to this music smiling and saying, "That's the way it goes, it be what it be. Bye Bye. Nothing lasts forever ..."

Everybody, let's do what Janet has said. Everybody, let's go dancing in the streets ... while there is still time.

That would be a great slogan!

The Who Lyrics

"Won't Get Fooled Again"

We'll be fighting in the streets
With our children at our feet
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgement of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again

The change, it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the fold, that's all
And the world looks just the same
And history ain't changed
'Cause the banners, they are flown in the last war

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
No, no!

I'll move myself and my family aside
If we happen to be left half alive
I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky
Oh I know that the hypnotized never lie
Do ya?

There's nothing in the streets
Looks any different to me
And the slogans are replaced, by the bye
And a parting on the left
Is now a parting on the right

And the beards have all grown longer overnight

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
Don't get fooled again
No, no!

Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss


The Who - Won't Get Fooled Again (Live at Kilburn 1977) The Who - Won't Get Fooled Again (Live at Kilburn 1977). Sorry for the splitted video. And don't forget to listen at full blasted volume and use HEADPHONES!

Geez, David Watts. Couldn't be more perfect for this post and this country.

Maybe we can't pick the contestants' slogans,

But the People's slogan: Won't get fooled again!

(the Kinks have a song for everything, don't they?)

I think Zappo's sells a campaign button that says "Nobody--2020"

(Sales support the Greanville Post)

How about "Won't Get Fooled AGAIN!" on red, white and blue T-shirts?

The Kinks do have a lot of songs but that is not one of them. The "Who" recorded the song, "Won't Get Fooled Again." The Kinks recorded "David Watts." I wish I could be like David Watts.

David Watts Written by: Ray Davies

Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa
Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa

I am a dull and simple lad
Can not tell water from champagne
And I have never met the queen
And I wish I could have all that he has got
I wish I could be like David Watts

Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa
Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa

And when I lie on my pillow at night
I dream I could fight like David Watts
Lead the school team to victory
And take my exams and pass the lot

(Wish I could be)
Wish I could be like David Watts
(Wish I could be)
Wish I could be like David Watts
(Wish I could be)
Conduct my life like David Watts
(Wish I could be)
I wish I could be like David Watts

Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa
Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa

He is the head boy at the school
He is the captain of the team
He is so gay and fancy free
And I wish all his money belonged to me
I wish I could be like David Watts

Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa
Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa

And all the girls in the neighborhood
Try to go out with David Watts
They try their best but can't succeed
For he is of pure and noble breed

Wish I could be like
Wish I could be like
Wish I could be like

Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa
Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa
(repeat)

I like the Kinks singing their song but I like the harp too. This cover has a harp. :)

"It's the military, stupid."

Or to bring in the p/u truck owning, flyover americans: "Roads not wars."

Cut the military budget to the bare minimum for defense and there's enough money to bring America from back of the pack of developed nations in terms of every measure of well being to first... where it should be all things considered.

That's how you end death and planetary destruction without raising a dime in taxes and without the obnoxious moral posturing so typical of democrats who are usually more interested in being regarded as superior to the deplorables than winning with them as partners.

Books not bombs.

War is making us poor.

Freedom dies when government lies.

We will sell no politician before his time.

No taxation without representation.

The happiest place on earth!

Leave the conniving to us.

It's finger lickin' good!

Trix are for kids!

Just do it!

Very good video!

A recent comment of mine to make a point:

"What I like to do is watch the ice disappearing in satellite videos in super-slow motion. I keep making the video ever more super slow; yet, the ice continues to vanish unsettlingly quickly. One thing though in watching it in super-slow-mo is, it does make it appear to be ever so slightly less alarmingly terrifying."

Before creating dazzling slogans ...

1) Honesty is first and foremost.

2) Knowing what you stand for is essential.

3) Impeccable listening skills are required.

4) Honest open communication with future constituents must be embraced 24/7/265.

Otherwise you end up with THIS.

As Beto would say: "Entiendes mi amigo?"

A SEPTUGENARIAN is a member of a cult, who only eats chlorophyll-based single cell organisms during September. The rest of the year these typically anti-social paranoids live on pork rinds and beer.

Oh, there you are Nels. I told you quite a long time ago you are a smart guy who knows how to write often beyond me comprehension. But right now? I don't feel so dumb. There are only two words in your comment I had to look up in the dictionary. I feel like I am making progress. :)

How kind of you! My ma used to make ambrosia. We couldn't afford marshmallows, so she substituted mothballs. Did you know I'm actually a novelist? I'm writing my 9th novel right now, almost finished with the first draft. It's a multicultural drug trafficking romance, set in Japan and Africa.

My novels are full of such nonsense as I occasionally drop here. I can't help myself. I have cerebral synaptic randomitis. It's caused when a fetus is cross-pollinated by a Mexican jumping bean. You might like my political satire, Blinders Keepers. It's used by DARPA to reverse engineer schizophrenia.

From Amazon:

"Blinders Keepers is social-political satire in the tradition of Jonathan Swift, Kurt Vonnegut and Joseph Heller, but revved up and spit-shined to take on the historical new levels of absurdity and dysfunction of the 21st Century."

From a few of the reviews:


"I AM ONLY 2% into the book and it has blown every other good book I've read, and there are plenty, away on heart catching openings."

"John Rachel's *Blinders KeeperS* is a *tour de force*"

"I recomend this book to every one it's brilliant. "

"It drew me in and unlike most books that I never finish, I found myself going back for more until alas there was no more. That is about the best compliment I can give..."

"Bang! Rachel nailed it again!"

"Wow, this author never disappoints...he knows how to keep your attention as he did with this satire read."

"Blinders Keepers" is the latest star of my "show this to the next person who says indie novels suck" list. Here's your novel by an unknown writer, from a press so indie it amounts to "self-publishing by proxy", with an oddball, non directive title and a vague cover. What's to like? Well... THE BOOK! It's WAY cool.
