My letter to Nancy Pelosi
91% of Americans do not want the US to engage in any military action in Syria.Â Over and over again,Â Americans haveÂ shown the way to their elected represented representatives and those representativesÂ have been deaf to their voices. What unimaginable hubris is driving members of Congress like yourself, to commit an even more serious war crime than […]
Comments on the PBS documentary "Coal"
(The documentary “Coal” aired on PBS last week and is available now online here.) I was extremely disappointed in the content of this program.

Bury My Heart In Electoral Politics
The ballot box just isn’t working for the 99%. 12 years of electoral politics have done nothing to stop the alarming erosion of the very foundations of our nation.

Common Dreams: States Settle forâ€¦a Poke in the Eye
States Settle forâ€¦a Poke in the Eye “The $26 billion settlement that state authorities wrangled out of the nationâ€™s five biggest banks amounts to peanuts compared to the damage that was done to homeowners across the country.”
What financial crisis?
The collapse of the world financial system is still in full swing. Â Good information is thin on the ground because those most culpable are doing their best to hide the full implications of their crimes. No one really knows how many trillions of worthless derivatives were created.Â New crisis arise almost daily like mushrooms after […]
Pull Up Some Dust and Sit down
Every social movement has its music.Â Â From the union movementÂ Â in the early part of theÂ 20th CenturyÂ to the 60’s revolution to Africa’s apartheid;Â Â everywhere voices were raised together against the forces of injustice and misrule.Â Â There are important reasons why music belongs in every revolution. MusicÂ Â penetrates to deeper levels of consciousness than mere language. The discipline forces simplicity uponÂ Â the […]
