Some are calling it Obama punting, but I say that the protesters who were arrested at the White House gates and elsewhere, Bill McKibben, 350.org and the 10,000 plus protesters who circled the Whitehouse this past weekend flat out WON!!.

President Obama has postponed a decision on the pipeline until 2013, after the next election. 

There's a good chance that things will change then. As an incumbent, Obama will be accountable to those who elected him-- the corporate donors. Or if Obama loses, and a Republican is in the White House, the question will only be how much corporate welfare will be given to expedite the construction of the pipeline. 

But for now, activists and protesters have something to be proud about. They stopped the pipeline for some time. 

Protest and activism are slow processes. They are incremental, with stops and starts, making little steps of progress. Today, a significant step was made and protests and people who engaged in civil disobedience helped make that step.

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
