As always we in NON-Corporate Media share our wisdom and those who have ears can/must act.

I was recently dealt a surprise health-care crisis, and thanks to the weak Insurance-Profit-Philic system, I received the care that allows me to type/think this morning. Later we'll see what piece the piper wants.

Over the decades I've stood against the legal racism of the 60s and the bloody wars from VietNam to Grenada from Panama to Honduras to the Gulf/Af/Pak -- and Iraq again and again.

I watched as the savagery of "Law" with its Dogs/Batons and horses has now evolved to storm troopers with tanks and pepper spray and I've seen our rallies consigned to tiny caged free-speech zones.

We've seen the accelerated destruction of the dwindling resources of the middle class. I see the nightmares those depression babies (our parents/aunts/uncles) warned us about have all too horribly come true.

I have decided as have many on these and similar pages have, that what remaining life I'm granted will be spent supporting my freedom-loving sisters and brothers and reminding all who would listen to alternate media -- We must bind ourselves to a better paradigm to simply have a future. Not just for our children and grandchildren but for their great grandchildren this is most seriously ominously true.

We grew up many of us loving nature, spending time in her glory only to discover, to our horror, callous hands would gladly poison and betray her, strip-mining, paving and polluting our futures.

We all knew and rehearsed the promises. We chanted the slogans "with liberty and justice for all" and yet again we watched that hope, that promise which seemed briefly in reach... sputter, falter and finally sprawl still borne in a profit-making flourish of dubious short-term merit then vanish justice was evidently not too big to fail.

The American Dream reduced again, the across-the-board assault on American justice now seen in tinted in color-coded terror alerts. Now visible in infallible bankers and untouchable enforcers and torturers.

Now we see our privacy, and the First and Fourth Amendments, struck-away by a new blend of Corprofit-ized Supreme Coutiers.

Where do we stand for the future?

It must be arm-in-arm. In our search for community, justice, civil rights, voting rights and a livable green world. We can't afford 200 organizations here in Florida waging 200 separate fights for clean water!

We must be One Citizen! Not citizen four plus two hundred million other separate citizens. But we must work together or they will indeed own and chip and strangle our grandchildren as we are reduced to a greasy spot where a noble experiment was once conducted, and not at all for the benefit of the TPP.

But we need to resurrect the vision of a new civic dream of self rule. Not for the benefit of the merchant class or the princelings of profit but for every mother's beloved child. We must work together.

Solidarity & Peace
