America’s Unjust Justice System ~ Bryan Stevenson’s Ted talk ~ Please Lend Your Ears

Facebook does indeed have merit as an information source when such insightful pieces comes through the news feed. Bill Moyers’ site shared this online via What Matters Today  http://billmoyers.com/2013/03/28/wealth-not-culpability-shapes-outcomes-in-court/    If you’re not sure why you should take the time to listen to Bryan Stevenson, please take a chance and listen for a few minutes before moving on. Give this a chance because Stevenson is good, really good, and well worth twenty-four minutes of your time.

Can’t we create a better world for everyone?

There’s much more on important issues from poverty, prisons, to Keystone XL on Moyers and Comapny http://billmoyers.com/

Who’s afraid of Emma Goldman?

 How scary can one woman be? Hmm? Apparently Emma Goldman (1896-1940) was more than the U.S. government could stand because “we” deported her to Russia because of her anarchistic political ideology.  Goldman seems to have had quite a knack for hitting all sorts of hot topics from advocating for workers’ rights to birth control to free love and political violence.  I do believe she’d outright terrify Tea Party women even more than anti-Walker protestors in Mad-city. She’d eat Sarah Palin alive.  I’d bet money on Goldman soundly walloping Her Majesty Clinton one on one in the intellectual toughness ring.  At the moment I can’t think of a single modern-day woman who could hold her own with the likes of Emma Goldman. Anyone care to make some suggestions?  Vandana Shiva perhaps?

Venezuela Warms America’s Poor

In spite of record profits by Shell, BP, Exxon, Chevron and Mobil–it is Citgo of Venezuela that donates heating oil to Americans in need of warmth.

“Every year, we hear from families who struggle each and every day to put food on the table and heat their homes,” said Joseph P. Kennedy II, President of Citizens Energy Corporation. “We are deeply grateful to CITGO and the people of Venezuela for their generosity to those who need help keeping their families warm. Every year, we ask major oil companies and oil-producing nations to help our senior citizens and the poor make it through winter, and only one company, CITGO, and one country, Venezuela, has responded to our appeals.”

Would you blog for peace?

Bloggers blog, right? Duh. We write short and long posts about everything from sex and drugs to forest slugs and oil spill slime.  There are over 300,000 bloggers just in WordPress land.  Lots more in the cyber-space beyond.  Blogging goes on around the globe.  In WordPress we find each other via tags and networking. We can connect with people in different time zones all day long.  We work the world-wide web like cyber demons sharing our humor,  poems, paintings, photographs, pains, joys, news, opinions, and everything else under the sun.  I wonder how many bloggers would blog a plea for world peace.  Just one blog post in the manner of one’s choice–poem, art, music, just a simple few words to signify that you desire peace around the world. How many bloggers would blog for peace? I don’t know.  I am  curious.  Shall we find out?

If you blog a plea for peace in the world please leave a link to your peace post.
