A Few Bad Men

Donald Trump we live in a world that has walls of racial inequities and injustices and those walls have to be torn down by groups like ours. Whose gonna do it you? You Mitch McConnell? We have a greater responsibility that you can possibly fathom. You fight to “Make America Great Again” and you curse Black Lives Matter. You have the luxury. You have the luxury of not experiencing what we do everyday, that Racism while seemingly invisible to you is an inherent part of American culture and our existence while grotesque, and incomprehensible, to you, is about making America live up to its promise that all people are created equal, about FINALLY MAKING AMERICA GREAT. We have neither the time, nor the inclination to explain ourselves, to a man who rises and sleeps under the freedoms of white privilege, and than questions why we demand equality! We’d rather you just said ‘thank you’, and went on your way. Otherwise We suggest you wake up and join us in the ever expanding Coalition of the Righteous and stand for equality. Either way, we don’t give a damn, what you think you makes America great.

We Are The Coalition Of The Righteous

GOP politicians are lining up to defend Trump’s racist tweets some going as far as too call them patriotic and informing us that we should just move on from this and get back to the business of governing. 

REALLY? Just move on from it? So now You’re going to tell US what is racist and what isn’t. Is this the same logic you used when you told us Slavery wasn’t racist, segregation wasn’t fine as long as it was separate but “equal”, red lining wasn’t racist. the shooting of unarmed black men of color were justified. 

No we can not simply move on from it.

Now more than ever we have a difficult time ahead of us. But we must shed our fear of it.

Why?

Because we are not here because of the path that lies before us but because of the path that lies behind us. Four hundred years we have endured slavery, racism, sexism, homophobia and the denial of basic human rights and with each step forward we take, with each of our achievement we accomplish it produces fear among those among who still preach hate, who look to divide, do not believe in the brotherhood of all but would rather hold onto the old ways of subjugation and bondage.

But we are rising up now, together as one, race, color, religion, creed, gender and national origin .  We are a coalition of the righteous and we are gathering momentum each and every day. We are going to create a world where color, gender, religious belief and country of origin doesn’t matter. A world without conflicts and killings. A world without borders and boundaries. A world united not divided, ruled by love not hate. A world where anything is possible.

Today we send a message to those who still cling to the past, those who still preach hatred, those who still wish to divide this great nation not on the content of our character but on the the color of our skin. Today we take OUR country back from the racist and bigoted. Today we tremble these amber waves of grain and purple mountain majesties from sea to shining sea. Today we remember, this is America where we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men and all women regardless of color are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of happiness.

Today we make them remember we are still here

Can You Dig It

I say the future is ours…
…if you can count!
Now, look what we have
here before us.
We’ve got the Muslims…
…sitting next to
the Jews.
We’ve got the Christians …
…right by the Atheists

The Whites up against the Blacks and the heterosexuals back to back with the homosexuals.

Nobody is wasting nobody.

That…
…is a miracle.
And miracles
is the way things ought to be.
You’re standing right now
with nine delegates from every race, nationality religion and sexual orientation
That’s over 7 and a half billion humans.
Now, put that in perspective and you’ll understand there ain’t but a handful of racist, misogynist, intolerant hate filled humans left in this whole world

Can you dig it?
Can you dig it?
Can you dig it?

Now here’s the sum total.
Unity and tolerance could run this world.
We could make it a paradise. Because we got the Earth

Can you dig it?

The problem in the past
has been those committed to hate and division turning us against one another.
We have been unable
to see the truth,
because we’ve been fighting
for 10 square feet of ground,
our turf, our little piece of turf.
That’s crap, brothers and sisters
The turf is ours by right
because it’s our turn.
All we have to do
is see the good in each other
We slowly root out the hate from each corner of the globe
Secure our territory,
secure our turf
because it’s all our turf and this Earth would be a paradise.

Can you dig it.

Power to the people Boogie to the beat

November 6, 2018 we must awaken with a single purpose:

To go to the polls and take government back from the charlatans who profess they have been elected to serve the people when the truth is they serve only themselves and the all mighty dollar.

To go to the polls and remove from the halls of government those who use hate and look to divide us so that they may expand their own power and increase their own wealth.

To go to the polls and restore what democracy truly is – The voice of the people.

On November 6, 2018 we must boogie to the new beat that is rising up in this country.

Racism based on the color of one skin fading away.

Discrimination based on one’s sexual orientation vanishing by the day

Disrespect of women no longer accepted as one of society’s dirty little norms

Bullying someone because they don’t fit neatly into a box that society claims is normal waning as we speak

Division being increasingly replaced by unity

Exclusion being increasingly replaced by inclusion

On November 6 we must rise as a people and boogie to the growing beat, that they are so desperate to shut down, and make America truly Great

The tears of a child

The tears of a child
The desperation of a parent
The signs of devastation all around

The laughter of the young
The comfort of a parent
The signs of abundance all around

This divides plays itself around the world. A world that is unique among our known cosmos. Blessed with a variety of natural resources when if shared correctly would eliminate the suffering amongst us. Sadly we have decided that the chase for monetary wealth should be prioritized over the well being of our fellow human. The irony being that the overwhelming number of us are more likely to be victims of devastation then beneficiaries of a great wealth.

The Aliens have decided – We’re not worthy

Alien #1: You are prepared to come before this council today with your recommendation on the humans?

Alien #2: I am.

Alien #1: Then this evaluation hearing shall come to order and you may proceed.

Alien #2: Thank you as you know I have always been a proponent of the humans as a species It is no secret that I have always found they are rather unique. Above all other life on Earth they are special because of their cognitive ability. When I was first tasked with evaluating them it was my hope that when faced with differences they would respond as many of our species have and use this ability to find common ground, to learn from each other and to grow as a species. Unfortunately that is not the case. Rather when faced with the unknown of another group my research has shown they choose, since the beginning of their time, not to use this ability to grow as a species but to make us versus them decisions along lines of race, ethnicity, gender, language group, religion, age, socioeconomic status, and so on. That combined with the human thirst for power and money has led them to turn their back on at best orto attempt to subjugate or even kill the other group at worst. This undoubtedly has stunted their development as a species over time yet they still do not change. Why? Well I have theorized and in my opinion their actions have proven this to be true the human mind despite all of its unique and special characteristics is lazy. When I say lazy what I mean is the human mind prefers to be comfortable. It is more comfortable to accept that which is familiar than that which is different. Even when they come to the realization that their actions are morally wrong and counterproductive to their society as a whole It is more comfortable to ignore this than to confront it. More importantly it appears that it is in their nature to live in the moment at the expense of their species future’s greater good, one can see that in how they treat their own planet. Coupled with their creation of and need for a socioeconomic system in which each group strives to climb over the other. One can only surmise that over the course of their history there has been the loss of great minds that may have developed over time in the groups that have resided near the bottom of the chain. Minds that if not extinguished would have flourished and led to the growth of the species as a whole. Regrettably it is this lack of self awareness that they are all human that I must say while having many tremendous qualities has proven they are clearly not ready to join us at this time.

Alien #1: Your recommendation has been entered humans admission to the the Advanced Collective of Universal Planets has been denied at this time.

 

An Open Message to GOP Leadership

An open message  to Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and other GOP leaders. We may not agree on much but deep down I bet you are as horrified as I am by President Trump’s response to Charlottesville. I bet you are embarrassed at the stain this man is leaving on your party. I know you gave lip service by INDIRECTLY denouncing some of his remarks via twitter but I bet you know you didn’t even come close to saying what needed to be said and saying it in front of a camera not via twitter. I will never totally agree with your legislative agenda but in a democracy to the winner goes the spoils and if you hold the power you have every right to push your agenda. But I assume you are smart enough to know that agenda can not include pushing hate and bigotry. Nor can it include giving aide and comfort to White Supremacist and Neo Nazis. It is time you stood up and took your party back from Donald Trump. Do not be afraid to lose the support of whatever percentage of his base believes his response to and the actions of hate groups was alright. These groups and this President do not represent the best of America they represent the worst. You can not keep America great, not make it great again because let’s face it that slogan was created to send a message seeped in racism, if you choose to stand idly by knowing what you see is wrong but doing nothing to stop it.

The Idea of America

Take a second today to place your hand over your heart and recite a pledge that would truly make America great

I pledge allegiance to the idea that is the United States of America, one people united under the banner of humanity, indivisible regardless of race, religion, gender, economic status and sexual orientation, with liberty and justice for all.

The Growth of the Deceitful

They come in all guises politicians, businessmen, celebrities, and yes even religious leaders. They say they care about you, that they want to bring healing to the masses. But in reality all they are looking too do is to deceive and separate. They do it to expand their own power and their own wealth. They do it at the expense of the same people they claim to care about and in these difficult times it is becoming increasingly easy for them to achieve their goals. Blessed with a silver tongue they prey on fears. They repeat something as fact over and over again without any collaborating evidence and to those who are struggling, grasping at straws for anything to hold on to it soon becomes fact. They use the fears of those who feel their voice has never been or is no longer being heard. They prey on this not to help bring the masses together, not to help uplift society but rather to increase their own power.

Fortunately history has shown us time and time again that their success will be fleeting. They may garner fame and accumulate wealth in the short-term but as the bible verse says their empire is built not on the rock but on sand and when the rains fall and the winds blow their empire will be swallowed up by that same sand on which it was built.
