A Pink post, of all things. Go figure.

The NEWS has put me in a very very black mood.  I was having some trouble venting in a manner that is socially acceptable.  My word choices were not suitable for general reading audiences.  Then I came across Pink’s so on target song, “Dear Mr. President,” and my problem was solved for the moment.  It’s so easy to interchange faces, names and images and still have the song relate its point. I wonder, how do any politicians, oil executives, lobbyists, corporate greed hogs, sleep ever. Apparently they all DO sleep very well in their warm comfy beds. That’s the difference between “them” and those of us who wonder about their callous disregard for anything except MONEY–and power-control.  

If you’ve been to Washington D.C. then you’ve encountered the homeless people who live there everywhere. Well, not in the park directly across from the White House. Oh no. No homeless folk allowed to sleep under those wonderful old trees  in full view of the President’s abode.

Now Haiti’s ongoing chaos reveals another side of the political Janus Faces that play at governing. Need I write more than one word? Cholera.  Let’s consider New Orleans’ ongoing issues and how that disaster has been and continues to be handled.  Does anyone have anything positive to relate about Government ‘help’ in regard to Katrina? Hmm?

The people beat the Feds to the punchline  regarding the ice storm power outage disaster on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation.  Oh and how cold does it get in South Dakota on a sunny winter day? So cold you can not breathe. People freeze to death inside their homes. 

Yes, it was the American people at large who responded before the Federal Government could even find Cherry Creek on a map. It’s people who are concerned about other people, our environment, our future–NOT our so called “leaders” who are led by the nose by the military industrial complex, big business, and Wall Street.  My point being–if we want a non-polluted Earth, clean energy, excellent education, quality health care for everyone,  meaningful employment for everyone–we need to create it ourselves. Those rich politicians feeding from the corporate trough have proven they have no interest in anything that does not benefit them and their  cronies.  Our problem is that they may succeed in making Earth too toxic for humans before we get our acts together.  What a future for the children of the world.

Cancun for everyone–but who cares? Not US.

    we can do so much and we have done so much but it are the small scale effort made by ordinary people who make a BIG difference

    we should not despair but instead spread the word what we can do encouraging others and support them who do

    there are lots of good companies small business which we can support

    lots of subsidies goes to BIG companies who have LOTS of profit $300 billion a year is spent by world government on subsidies to fossil-fuel companies

    In 2006, tHe US Government spent 22,981 million dollars in foreign aid…while the country debated the necessity of health care for children…a sad state of affairs…that has not end…seems like the play the Mouse that Roared still has more truth in it than we would want to admit.
