THIS CAN WIPE OUT ALL OF HUMANITY WITHOUT FALLING A SINGLE BUILDING AS A WAR MIGHT DO! – Chimeras – An animal made of mixed animal or human bodies. Only an idiot (defined as high I.Q. scientist) would believe that you will not create new deadly diseases by doing this! In 1997 it was banned for obvious concern but now the smell of Money $$, may be far more destructive than any Atom Bomb! A pig with human organs (for transplant) will surely pass pig (porcine) diseases to all of us as the pathogens learn to adapt to the human organs in the pigs. Look at the list of lunatic surgeons, who tortured dying people in “surgical experiments” in this article. Don’t ever imagine that surgeons, scientists, and researchers are idealists! They are as greedy as anyone else!
THE GIFT OF CULTURAL DIVERSITY IS FOR PEOPLE NOT CORPORATIONS.
We have all heard a story that begins like this: “When they came for the Jews, I stood silent, When they came for the Gypsy’s, I said nothing, Now their coming for me; who will stand up for me?”
In very few words this historical reminder of Germany’s greatest failure, reminds us of a similar experience and one of the reasons our founding fathers formed America. Our nation was to be a cohesive nation made strong, not weak, by our differences! We would respect the minorities and treat them as equals. We chose to do this for selfish reasons as well as idealistic ones. One of these selfish being our own protection, as the German story reminds us. Of course we, in our great experiment with democracy, have learned of many more reasons to be diverse.
In the poem, “I hear America Singing,” by Walt Whitman, we discover some of the magic that professional diversity affords us. Each industrious worker is seen doing his job. As Americans we should remember the different nations that joined us each bringing their unique skill. This is the key to our longevity and what has made us greater than any other nation on Earth!
Since I was a little kid, I heard stories of the Mohawks who helped build skyscrapers. In 1886, a Canadian company, building a bridge over the St. Lawrence river discovered the Mohawk’s fearless nature, when they hired them to help build the bridge. The Mohawks climbed steel like it was second nature. When a span collapsed killing 30 of their tribesmen, they came in greater numbers seeing it as a challenge not a failure.
About half of the 19th century Italian immigrants were laborers, compared to 1/3 of the Irish and Germans. Contracted out by professional labor brokers known as “Padrones” they dug tunnels, built bridges, laid tracks and helped build skyscrapers. In Chicago over 90% of the steel workers were Italians.
Each nation brought its skills and the blessings of its unique gene pool and culture. The Jews became lawyers, doctors and business owners. The Irish made our cities safe as, policemen, firemen and other city workers. The list goes on and on…
But back to the story of “When they came for the Jews…” President Eisenhower warned us to beware of the “Military Industrial Complex.” He was warning us of the dangerous political influence that corporate America had discovered was within its grasp. He was warning us that we needed to stay true to our principles by keeping the values of our founding fathers, our Judeo-Christian values.
Now nearly a quarter of a century back, corporate America was noting that it could not balance its books, when it kept its contractual obligations to its employees. For example, GM had promised to be the healthcare “god” to its workers and this expenditure was now causing them to pass along too much of this financial burden to car buyers. Many corporations were guilty of this as well, as in promising retirement plans they could not afford later. Our Government was one of the very worst of those in promising both to its employees and then passing along this unearned expense to taxpayers.
In the Clinton era, an unholy alliance was forming. Corporate money for elections, if you take the burden off the corporate books and put it on the taxpayers! Hillary could now smell election victory as the first female president; all she needed was healthcare reform.
Government should be about doing the right thing for the people but, it has become about getting re-elected and serving whatever master has the most money. This it turns out, is the corporate alliance that Ike warned us about. As a result, the medical profession, then made of loosely knit organizations of individual entrepreneurs became their target. The real issues of health care reform and efficiency were never tackled because it dealt with death and dying. Death and dying means dealing with religious values as well as philosophical ones, which are hard to face and too easy to skirt. A huge majority of healthcare expenses comes from what we call “heroic” efforts to keep the sick, dying, very old alive. This effort often ends in their suffering a degrading death at the hands of too many technicians and doctors. Witness to this is in the form of the ever growing number of Living Wills, Do Not Resuscitate Agreements and Health Care Proxys.
The doctors of America were the ideal target for corporate savings; they were small business owners and had no unions to defend them.. Over the next quarter century doctors were then bled into bankruptcy. As a result, individual doctors, practicing privately, are now a rarity. Doctor’s incomes have dropped so significantly, thanks to corporate run managed care, that the majority of doctors are part time mom’s or foreigners from impoverished nations such as India (not to say the Indians are not excellent doctors).
In every song we need a refrain that repeats, so here it comes again. “When they came for the Jews…” Are you beginning to see that pattern of history?
The corporations next discovered that they could make more money if they hired foreigners from third world nations and yet still claimed to be American companies. They claimed to be American companies to keep all the benefits of your paying for their defense with your life should they be threatened. Of course your life would not matter as they fired you and hired the workers overseas. Oh yes, they would bribe you with the short sighted benefit of low cost Chinese products, until your bank account ran out. Soon you and your neighbors lost their jobs and were forced into low paying service jobs at Home Depot or Walmart to sell the foreign products that were putting you out of work.
More recently the government has decided that the taxpayers should pay for corporate failures by being obligated to pay for corporate financial losses and fraud.
Lets try the refrain again with a little update, “When they came for the Doctors, I stood silent, When they came for the blue collar workers, I said nothing, Now they are coming for me; who will stand up for me?”
When you laugh at the disorganized rag tag protestors of “Wall Street.” Remember you are part of America and their concerns are in many ways yours. If you are an aging Hippy or a proud Viet Nam era vet note that you are not dead yet. America is not dead yet. America gains its power from diversity not homogeneity. Before they take America, take it back! Overcome the illusions of disagreement and remember that we are all in this together and for Each Other. Corporations and Governments are soul-less institutions that have taken over the rights of God’s children. Trump promised to bring business back to America to employ Americans and he promised to keep the influence of government for the people, by the people and of the people (not corporate bribes to congressmen). Let’s see that Trump keeps his promises and not let the media divide Americans.
I believe our founding fathers would organize against the corporatocracy that has taken over America, what about you? Hold Trump to his promises and stay united for all.
The Supreme Court’s decision to unfetter corporate political contributions needs to be reversed by local action!
Bernie Sanders had a point in his quest for the reversal of Citizens United in 2012 but not the method to attack it. Bernie wanted a constitutional Amendment to reverse Citizens United; however using a sledgehammer to kill ants is not logical as it consequent side effects are too widespread. Bernie’s approach was just as illogical even though his goal was good for America.
Giving corporations the rights of human beings, specifically freedom of speech but defined in cash, makes no sense to most Americans. In fact it is odious! The citizens of America have forever fought the battle of efforts by the corporate wealthy to establish a corporatocracy and before corporation’s existed by those who wished for a Plutocracy.
Five years of the resultant legislative action and reaction (after Citizens United) is hard to reverse, just as will be the failed attempt at national healthcare by those who legislated for ObamaCare. ObamaCare may be changed in name and in structure but its roots like that of many invasive plants will never be fully removed.
In the case of Citizens United, a grassroots effort to chip away at its foundations accross America may be our best bet. There is clear precedent for this approach when you consider the results of efforts to maintain the Right To Bear Arms and those of the movement to allow for Gay Marriage. Here is a story much on this point from The Atlantic…..
Who Makes Your Electronics And Missiles?
On September 29th 2011, 6 years ago, China launched its Tiangong-1 Space Lab (video). Launched on a Long-March rocket from the Gobi desert, it was the first step towards the creation of a Space Station to be completed in 2020. The year 2020, is the year that the international space station was to be scheduled for decommission (better known as the junk yard). If a new one is not built, or something done to extend the life of the current one, this will leave China with the Earth’s only space station!
China is not currently part of the International space station project because the US had refused to let it become part of the project. One reason is because of US concerns about China’s military goals for space. Not at all unreasonable.
If you recall, it was building roads that helped the Roman Empire expand and become a historic power. Through history the power of transportation, communication and technology has been an asset in times of war or even cold war. If concerns about China are real, should they be making most of our technology? The answer is obvious!
How far has China gone in the direction of dominating space? Almost nothing is seen in our news media regarding their achievements. Here are a few to ponder: In 2003, China put its first man in space, In 2008 China achieved its first space walk, In 2010 China launched its first unmanned mission to the Moon to map its surface (probably a precursor to a future lunar landing). Make no mistake about it, China has forward thinking leadership and plans to be a space faring power! China Aims to Become Global aerospace power, Says President Xi Jinping
It is clearly time to see that our government helps stimulate the growth of industry and technology in America. Leaving it to Transnational corporations, with no allegiance to America is tantamount to inviting a Trojan Horse into the Pentagon. Most of our very large corporations are more concerned about shareholder profit than America’s future. This myopia, is helping fuel the economic challenges of America. Stimulating local manufacturing and regaining President Kennedy’s focus on space is essential to the future of our children and our Nation’s existence. Lets hope that Donald Trump can see this future and work to restore our nation’s self reliance. Depending upon China for our technology is not a very wise decision for our long term survival.
What is Ubuntu?
Ubuntu is a free computer operating system and a philosophy of human kindness and cooperation. It has produced a miracle in both areas that is worth understanding. It has the potential to help establish world peace as a model for human cooperation. Read this article and learn why!
Ubuntu as a Free Computer operating system (OS): Only 40 paid programmers work for Canonical Ltd., which is responsible for coordinating thousands of volunteer programmers and developers from around the world who create and maintain Ubuntu. Ubuntu is an operating system, like windows, but many consider it far better. Unlike Windows it is Free and most of the software you would ever need to install on it is Also Free! For 99% of my work, I have not used windows in years; I use Ubuntu! Just like your smartphone can download thousands of free apps for Ubuntu. Consider a few that I use that are totally free (but the equivalent for windows might cost thousands of dollars):
- Audacity – a full music / sound recording editing studio on your desktop
- GIMP – An image manipulation program that lets you create and modify pictures like Photoshop
- Browsers: Chrome, Opera or FireFox and many others
- Libreoffice – An office suite much like Microsoft Office but completely free
- Rhythmbox – an excellent music organizer and player
- BackUps – With BackUps you can copy your current computer’s music, images, programs and settings and in Re-Create it on ANY NEW COMPUTER effortlessly!
- Here are six things that Ubuntu does better than windows
How is it possible that thousands of brilliant programmers worldwide donate their time, skills and knowledge for free for you?
Ubuntu is sponsored by the UK-based company Canonical Ltd., owned by South African entrepreneur Mark Shuttleworth. Canonical generates revenue by selling technical support and services related to Ubuntu, while the operating system itself is entirely free of charge. The Ubuntu project is entirely committed to the principles of free software development; people are encouraged to use free software, improve it, and pass it on (its code is available so anyone can modify and improve it and share it anew)! In other words, other than a small financially self sustaining leadership group, Canonical, Ubuntu is a miracle of human cooperation by thousands of gifted people across the world who work as a team to improve the quality of human life for all of us!
Pictured here to the right of this text is some of the team at a gathering for volunteer developers.
Ubuntu as a way of life — Archbishop Desmond Tutu offered a definition of Ubuntu in a 1999 book: A person with Ubuntu is open and available to others, affirming of others, does not feel threatened that others are able and good, based from a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that he or she belongs in a greater whole and is diminished when others are humiliated or diminished, when others are tortured or oppressed.
One of the sayings in our country is Ubuntu is the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can’t exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our interconnectedness. You can’t be human all by yourself, and when you have this quality – Ubuntu – you are known for your generosity. We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole World. When you do well, it spreads out; it is for the whole of humanity. The philosophy of Ubuntu has influenced many world wide. For example: The Peace Project, The Peace Education Project and there is more to come.
As human beings, the Judeo-Christian bible reminds us that we struggle with two forces. One is the physical desire to selfishly seek wealth and power that does not create value for society (such as might come from rebuilding a city or creating jobs) while the other side is the more spiritual side that recognizes the Creator’s plan for all of humanity to live in harmony and peace. From the Judeo-Christian viewpoint we recognize Abraham as the near “perfect man” who taught us how to live in harmony by example of the way he lived. Ubuntu like Abraham, does not deny the accumulation of wealth and power as long as it is used for the betterment of all. Could we ever achieve that goal? The stories of Ubuntu, as shared above, hint at this possibility.
It is always difficult to educate people while keeping them awake. Years of college has attuned me to identifying people who are sitting upright in chairs with open eyes and still in deep sleep.
It is far better to entertain, as Walt Disney said, with the hopes of educating then to educate with the hope of entertaining. Much of my Sci-fi, Sci-fantasy writings deal with questions of the potential for people living by the principles of Ubuntu. I explore, through adventure and imagination, what could happen if we learn to live in harmony (Ubuntu) and if not. I am constantly reminded as I write of the potential for human harmony as all my writing, research, social communication etc is done with the reliable results of the people who believe in Ubuntu, on an Ubuntu powered computer.
1. GMO FOODS (Any of them)
The Situation: GMO foods encourage the massive spraying of herbicides on our topsoils, polluting the ground, waterways, animals and humans. Scientific studies have shown the RoundUp Ready genes in GMO foods to transfer to our intestinal flora and the pesticide producing genes, called Bt-toxins, to be present in both unborn fetuses and their mothers. In short, GMO foods pollute our environment and our bodies. No long term health studies of GMO foods have been performed on humans. In addition to polluting our bodies with mutant DNA, eating RoundUp Ready GMO foods insures a hefty dose of herbicide given that GMO crops are even more heavily sprayed than conventional non-organic crops. The environmental, political, economic, and social damage by GMO foods is staggering. GMO foods include corn, soybeans, sugar beets, potatoes, alfalfa, canola, potato, papaya, rice, honey, squash, rapeseed, tomatoes, sweet corn, tobacco, peas, and more.
The Solution: Check that all the food you purchase is non-GMO. Demand a halt to GMO foods any chance you get. Support mandatory labeling of GMO foods. Buy ORGANIC. Plant a garden

2. CANNED TOMATOES
The Expert: Fredrick vom Saal, PhD, an endocrinologist at the University of Missouri who studies bisphenol-A.
The Situation: The resin linings of tin cans contain bisphenol-A, a synthetic estrogen that has been linked to ailments ranging from reproductive problems to heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. Unfortunately, acidity (a prominent characteristic of tomatoes) causes BPA to leach into your food. Studies show that the BPA in most people’s body exceeds the amount that suppresses sperm production or causes chromosomal damage to the eggs of animals. “You can get 50 mcg of BPA per liter out of a tomato can, and that’s a level that is going to impact people, particularly the young,” says vom Saal. “I won’t go near canned tomatoes.”
The Solution: Choose tomatoes in glass bottles (which do not need resin linings), such as the brands Bionaturae and Coluccio. You can also get several types in Tetra Pak boxes, like Trader Joe’s and Pomi.
3. CORN-FED BEEF
The Expert: Joel Salatin, co-owner of Polyface Farms and author of half a dozen books on sustainable farming.
The Situation: Cattle evolved to eat grass, not grains. But farmers today feed their animals corn and soybeans, which fatten up the animals faster for slaughter. More money for cattle farmers (and lower prices at the grocery store) means a lot less nutrition for us. A recent comprehensive study conducted by the USDA and researchers from Clemson University found that compared with corn-fed beef, grass-fed beef is higher in beta-carotene, vitamin E, omega-3s, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), calcium, magnesium, and potassium; lower in inflammatory omega-6s; and lower in saturated fats that have been linked to heart disease. “We need to respect the fact that cows are herbivores, and that does not mean feeding them corn and chicken manure,” says Salatin.
The Solution: Buy grass-fed beef, which can be found at specialty grocers, farmers’ markets, and nationally at Whole Foods. It’s usually labeled because it demands a premium, but if you don’t see it, ask your butcher.

4. MICROWAVE POPCORN
The Expert: Olga Naidenko, PhD, a senior scientist for the Environmental Working Group.
The Situation: Chemicals, including perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), in the lining of the bag, are part of a class of compounds that may be linked to infertility in humans, according to a recent study from UCLA. In animal testing, the chemicals cause liver, testicular, and pancreatic cancer. Studies show that microwaving causes the chemicals to vaporize—and migrate into your popcorn. “They stay in your body for years and accumulate there,” says Naidenko, which is why researchers worry that levels in humans could approach the amounts causing cancers in laboratory animals. DuPont and other manufacturers have promised to phase out PFOA by 2015 under a voluntary EPA plan, but millions of bags of popcorn will be sold between now and then.
The Solution: Pop natural kernels the old-fashioned way: in a skillet. For flavorings, you can add real butter or dried seasonings, such as dillweed, vegetable flakes, or soup mix.
5. FARMED SALMON
The Expert: David Carpenter, MD, director of the Institute for Health and the Environment at the University at Albany and publisher of a major study in the journal Science on contamination in fish.
The Situation: Nature didn’t intend for salmon to be crammed into pens and fed soy, poultry litter, and hydrolyzed chicken feathers. As a result, farmed salmon is lower in vitamin D and higher in contaminants, including carcinogens, PCBs, brominated flame retardants, and pesticides such as dioxin and DDT. According to Carpenter, the most contaminated fish come from Northern Europe, which can be found on American menus. “You can only safely eat one of these salmon dinners every 5 months without increasing your risk of cancer,” says Carpenter, whose 2004 fish contamination study got broad media attention. “It’s that bad.” Preliminary science has also linked DDT to diabetes and obesity, but some nutritionists believe the benefits of omega-3s outweigh the risks. There is also concern about the high level of antibiotics and pesticides used to treat these fish. When you eat farmed salmon, you get dosed with the same drugs and chemicals.
The Solution: Switch to wild-caught Alaska salmon. If the package says fresh Atlantic, it’s farmed. There are no commercial fisheries left for wild Atlantic salmon.
6. MILK PRODUCED WITH ARTIFICIAL HORMONES
The Expert: Rick North, project director of the Campaign for Safe Food at the Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility and former CEO of the Oregon division of the American Cancer Society.
The Situation: Milk producers treat their dairy cattle with recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH or rBST, as it is also known) to boost milk production. But rBGH also increases udder infections and even pus in the milk. It also leads to higher levels of a hormone called insulin-like growth factor in milk. In people, high levels of IGF-1 may contribute to breast, prostate, and colon cancers. “When the government approved rBGH, it was thought that IGF-1 from milk would be broken down in the human digestive tract,” says North. As it turns out, the casein in milk protects most of it, according to several independent studies. “There’s not 100% proof that this is increasing cancer in humans,” admits North. “However, it’s banned in most industrialized countries.”
The Solution: Check labels for rBGH-free, rBST-free, produced without artificial hormones, or organic milk. These phrases indicate rBGH-free products.
7. CONVENTIONAL APPLES
The Expert: Mark Kastel, former executive for agribusiness and co-director of the Cornucopia Institute, a farm-policy research group that supports organic foods
The Situation: If fall fruits held a “most doused in pesticides contest,” apples would win. Why? They are individually grafted (descended from a single tree) so that each variety maintains its distinctive flavor. As such, apples don’t develop resistance to pests and are sprayed frequently. The industry maintains that these residues are not harmful. But Kastel counters that it’s just common sense to minimize exposure by avoiding the most doused produce, like apples. “Farm workers have higher rates of many cancers,” he says. And increasing numbers of studies are starting to link a higher body burden of pesticides (from all sources) with Parkinson’s disease.
The Solution: Buy organic apples. If you can’t afford organic, be sure to wash and peel them first.

NOTE: This article is nearly 5 years old and yet food has gotten worse and not better!
Rosie O’donnel, an Elitist celebrity egotists who thinks you and I are drooling idiots continues to use the spotlight of Hollywood to try to overthrow American free choice and American values (none of which she could ever represent).
This elitist snob who considers the voice of middle America and those Americans who have suffered financial ruin for the last 20 years, meaningless drivel!
She does so by using her wealth and access to media to call for martial law to prevent Trumps inauguration! Its another way of saying this to America. “Middle America, American urban slum dwellers, disenfranchised blue collar workers of Detroit, you have no value! You have no meaning! You have no vote! You have no mind I respect!”
It’s time to DEFUND HOLLYWOOD and all those who have been made absurdly wealthy by the people they have no respect for, you and I!
Meryl Streep used the money middle America paid at the theater to diss Middle America and anyone who is not in her west coast wealthy snob circle.
Meryl knows what we don’t, she like Rosie is just smarter and wiser than all of us average Americans.
She, Rosie and her colleagues picture you as lying drunk in front of a TV watching sports events and getting fat on beer and pizza.
She doesn’t think that you can think because you are not a hollywood star!
It’s the same situation in the United Nations, where incredibly wealthy Islamic nations have used their financial power to turn the U.N. into an anti-Israeli club to try to destroy the only true Democracy in the middle east.
This is nothing more than an effort to decrease American power in the
middle east and fulfill Obama and Kerry’s vision of a One World Order. I for one will not let them dismantle America without a fight!
I do not give up the nation my father fought for in WW II and its allies like Israel, I will not give our nation to those like George Soros who funds his one world order dream with his huge wealth and overblown ego.
Actors whose greatest skill is being someone other than who they are (in other words a professional liar) do not now nor have they ever represented mainstream American values! Their wealth keeps them fully out of touch
with what matters to Americans other than on the coast where their vested financial interest ally against the rest of us.
Actors are just another example of the unequal distribution of wealth that has given the power of the media to people who don’t represent us! We need to tell.them to shut up by
taking away their
An Entertainment Tax on Entertainers!
I suggest an entertainment Tax on all actors, sports…public entertainers on stage or screen of 90%.
I am sure they would support this knowing that this tax be used to support their favorite charity, the poor and disenfranchised Americans they always publicly cry for when arriving in their personal jets.
What was it in the distance; hard to see on this overcast day? It looked like a cigar with a pencil strapped to it; but, it was in fact the result of millions of years of mankind’s dreams, America’s unified pride and the results of individual freedom to achieve our dreams! As the sun came up from behind the clouds and lit the landscape the view shifted.
Joe stood near the water’s edge and observed this now gleaming pencil like object, pointing skyward, a half mile away across the intercostal. At that distant point in Canaveral it was T minus 30 seconds and the tension was building in the crowd of thousands. These people, like Joe, stood in the now hot florida sun, several deep from the road, waiting the experience of a lifetime. Hand held transistor radios reported from every direction weather and launch status in a cacophony much like standing in flock of excited seagulls.
Joe watched intently as the distant gantry rolled back and misty plumes of gas flared skyward from the dangling hoses. T Minus 5 seconds and crowd began to cheer! Then Zero hour and the flames erupted like a newborn sun beneath the ship. The very Earth below Joe’s feet began to vibrate but it was hard to tell if it was the thundering giant a half mile away or the crowds screaming, cheering and jumping up and down with excitement. Joe was sure it was both.
The niagara like cascade of water, cooling the launch pad, created clouds of steam so huge as to engulf and rise above, the now snail like ascent, of our dreams creation in its caressing arms. Then as if on cue, the huge rocket accelerated skyward to the awe of Joe and millions lost in their screams of joy and visions of America’s future. ……………. It was then we Knew America Was Great!
It was before the corruption of congress, the executive office and bribes from Industry, sucked the spirit, dreams, hope and financial strength out of Americans. It was before the creation of the corporate cronyism that now rules America.
Freedom entails risks! I for one will vote For Change! We cannot afford to go on with the corruption that Hillary is financed by!
Do trees have brains and talk to each other? They are intelligent, express emotions and make friends, claims a new book. Read this brief fascinating story from the Daily Mail. Judge for yourself and then read my short story The First Child’s Plan. I call it fiction but you will understand….. here is the story from the Daily Mail:
- Some research claims trees are able to communicate with each other
- Forester Peter Wohlleben believes they are able to transmit information
- Scientists are starting to ask whether trees possess intelligence and brains
If that’s true — and my experience as a forester convinces me it is — then they must be able to store and transmit information.
And scientists are beginning to ask: is it possible that trees possess intelligence, and memories, and emotions? So, to cut to the quick, do trees have brains?
It sounds incredible, but when you discover how trees talk to each other, feel pain, nurture each other, even care for their close relatives and organise themselves into communities, it’s hard to be sceptical.
Read More From The Daily Mail: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3792036/Do-trees-brains.html
My Comment: This BASIC concept is frequently found in my “sci-fi” stories; however, when you think about what this article discloses, if you can think outside the box, you might begin to wonder, if trees talk why not planets? Why not solar systems? Why not Galaxies? In our egocentric religious dreams of being the center of God’s universe, science to its own myopia and self deception supported the religious myth by defining the intellectual superiority of man over all. Man, who uses scientific justification to destroy the environment out of an illusion of his grand scientific understanding of all around him and self his self importance. …………….. Read on and then possibly wonder how the Earth might rid itself of a parasite called humanity, The First Child’s Plan.
With Corruption In Congress and Evident In Those Who Call Themselves “Presidential Candidates,” How Big An Affect Would Electing A New Pig At The Trough Have?
The Short YouTube Video, Power Of Networks, helps us understand that our votes (or actions) do more than elect one man, they can change a nation! Political and social
scientist, James Fowler and Nicholas Christakas in their book “Connected: The Surprising Power of Our Social Networks and How They Shape Our Lives” explain the dramatic affects relationships have on any and all groups (like our nation). They explain that we are connected like schools of fish and flocks of birds. However the friends who live a 100 miles away have just as much affect as the friends who live next door, even if you only meet with them once or twice a year. Even more important is that your friend’s friend’s friends have an influence on you! This can determine whether you are altruistic, depressed, positive and even obese.
Consider that to find the perfect mate, you would theoretically have to date 6,000 people. However, if each of us knows 20 people and each of those people know 20 people and they each know 20 people, this network would put us in touch with 8,000 people who are just 3 degrees of separation away from us! So in a reasonable environment we can find the ideal mate without just throwing dice.
Back to the presidential election. If each of us with ethics, decent values and courage makes an effort to share those values and concerns with people we know, like and trust (our network), we have the power to influence the behavior of 8,000 people! Its not Uncle Sam who needs you, it is our country who needs you! Get involved now in writing, speaking, meeting and sharing your true feelings about the “dirt” that are running our country. If YOU do, over the next 3 months our country will be pregnant with people who want and CAN bring about change that will save our nation from ruin and our children from a life of misery and domination by corporate corruption and foreign powers.
