An open space for global conversation
Over the last 20 years I have heard a lot of talk, seen documentaries and Youtube videos on the topic of the Mayan Doomsday date of December 21, 2012. Although many of the theories that people have may sound possible, I believe we will all be waking up in our beds on December 22, 2012, that is if we don't die of natural causes, accidents or violent crime first.
I do believe, however, that 2012 may be the year that we may see the end of the world as we know it. Due to present…Continue

The immortal words of Jesus says "Judge not ... and ye shall not be judge by your own measures." When I see this scripture I believe that he is speaking about judging the condition of a person's soul; judging on a spiritual level. If I point at a man and say, that man is going to hell because he's a thief, an adulterer, etc. then I am guilty of judging.
However If I see a man running out of a bank with a mask on carrying a bag of loot while the alarms are going off, I can call that…Continue

Recently I submitted my blog on class bigotry to my local newspaper office as a letter to the editor. It may go into publication.
I am testing the waters in my community to do either one of two things, start an Occupy Movement group and/or make a run for the city council in the next election.
The small town I live in has a population of less than 10,000 and most are poor or in poverty. There is a growing problem in the community of what I call "Class Bigotry" where the poor is…Continue

I just posted this on my personal Facebook page this morning ...
Even though I support the efforts of the Occupy Movement, I strongly believe that the biggest way we can change our nation and the world is by learning to care for each other. The argument I hear many people say about those who visit food pantries or seek other aid is that they are playing the system and want something for nothing. Although you may have a few that do that, the majority of people are just struggling and…Continue
I have a great idea. I wish we could have an evict a banker day where we could force bankers to live in a dark back alley for a day or two in the cold, just so they could get a feel of what it's like to be homeless. Make sure they don't have any money or credit/debit cards on them first. Give them some old newspaper for insulation and tell them they have to dumpster dive for their dinner. Make sure the alley is in a high crime and poverty area so they would know what it's like to be alone…Continue

Hello. If you are reading this now then you are part of the resistance.
Recently, Rick Perry stated in a television commercial that it is not fair that gays have the right to serve openly in the military while children are not allowed to have prayer or Bible studies in public schools.
FACT: Neither President Obama nor the Congress had a hand in allowing gays to serve openly in the military. This was a decision made during a Supreme Court Case earlier this…Continue

Hello. If you are reading this right now then you are part of the resistance.
I really love reading and hearing about Occupy’s newest plans to occupy foreclosed properties. The foreclosure crisis that hit America in recent years was created by banks’ predatory lending practices. Now the time has come to make them pay. Although I consider this an excellent enterprise for the Occupy Movement to go after banks and Wall Street, there is an even bigger enemy that is largely being ignored…Continue

If you are reading this message you are part of the resistance.
My computer is 100% up to power now after my 3-year-old hard drive went kaput. I'm back up using a smaller spare drive that I had stored away. Yesterday morning I worked on my system at 3:00 a.m. and had it back up before 4:30 a.m. The rest of the day after work was spent on fine tuning. I will be using this computer sparingly until I get a bigger drive at Best Buy this weekend, meaning no graphics programs.

I know that my blog heading will attract a lot of attention out there and it should. If you read this you will not only learn what just happened to me, but you may receive some good encouragement if this should ever happen to you.
Yesterday, I have done a survey on my Facebook page and discovered that three individuals (two of them were family members) had "unfriended" me from their Facebook pages. This does not surprise me because all three of them were devoted right-wingers who have…Continue
This is my very first blog ever, so bear with me.
MYTH 1: THE OCCUPY MOVEMENT IS A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO WANT SOMETHING FOR NOTHING.
FACT: The majority of people who I have seen and heard do not want a hand out but a hand-up. The truth is that the 1% receive millions more in welfare than a single mother who receives a state welfare check. This is called corporate welfare and is suppose to help stimulate the economy and create jobs. It…Continue
