Look around at how the 1% are working full time to make more working people poor so that they can continue their lifestyle.  The more poor, the better off those at the top will be as we fight among ourselves for the table scraps.

Fair question - dems taking the house, T Party death grip being released
is NECESSARY, but TOTALLY NOT sufficient.  BUT ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY.

This is the party that today has elevated Opinion to the level of PHD
scholar, authoritative history, science.  No.  That is the height of
hypocrisy. They would NOT do it if a loved one were immediately
involved - their OPINION to fly a 747, operate on their daughter's
brain, design their cell phone....  Grotesque, self-indulgent, deadly
insanity.  And if they WOULD do this to their loved one, those
around them in this country would stop them. INSANE, criminally.

T Party/GOP today is a deadly barrier - tool of the 400 families that have
as much wealth as the bottom 150 million of us - Fascism, by
definition.  They must be gotten out of any control- states too.

The Dems, today, are more than willing (cept the red states) to allow
what is needed - EXCEPT - yes, corp money and uber-rich money
will be a massive obstacle. 

But with dem, dem, dem - we citizens have a chance.  Otherwise,
we're just out of time.

Eisenhower could not win a primary today, nor Reagan.  CRIMINAL
INSANITY IN TODAY'S GOP.

Is there really a difference tween the parties?  I think we have ample
answer today - where would we be in healthcare, equal pay for women,
gay rights, Iran, Syria, Auto Industry, National Debt, Deficit, Economy.... 
Regardless of one's preference, yes, there is a huge difference.

60% of Americans or more, near 50% of Republicans WANT:

* Immigration reform
* Obamacare IMPLEMENTED
* Iran peace agreement
* CARBON CONTROL LEGISLATION....

100% blocked by 40 grievously gerrymandered T Party house districts.  ANTI-DEMOCRACY.
TREASON.

Depression Update: I remain in about as profound a crisis of 'who am I' as one can have - many, many, many weeks now - maybe nigh on a year....

From a note to a friend - 

I remain in about as profound a crisis of 'who am I' as one can have - many, many, many weeks now - maybe as long as half a year.  Not knowing who I am I can't know what I will do; and nor can anyone else count on me, yet.  I haven't been 'Loving,' actually, in truth for much of that time - only saw that today.  My Heart is so Dead with all the Evil in the world that my Loving has been obliterated. The world is so much more evil, lost, by orders of magnitude than I'd seen these recent decades - well, I thought I was on the Titanic with time to turn it; and now I see I'm on the Titanic AFTER it has hit the iceberg.  They are very different worlds and I haven't yet found my Life in this post-iceberg Titanic.  I am not berating myself - I do the best I can.  But no one can at all count on me at this time.  I'm very, very, very lost. Working, meditating, praying... to find myself, maybe making progress, but only time will tell.  (((HUGS)))  I'm not completely without hope of solving this, but it is pretty Dark right now.  It does seem, that for the moment, I'll need to back away from the daily, intensive, near all day long look and republishing of the horror that I've been doing.  I don't know what to do.

Mansfield Council Votes In Support of Fracking Waste Ban In Ohio. frackthemedia.com

"City officials and citizens of Mansfield Ohio continue to move forward in protecting communities against the inundation of hydraulic fracturing waste disposal. In a unanimous vote, Mansfield City Council passed resolution 13-343 which strongly supports the passage of Ohio House Bill 148. HB 148 proposes prohibiting the disposal of brine by deep well injection and land application in the state of Ohio. Ohio is targeted as a toxic dumping ground by the oil and gas industry and Ohio residents are seeing an increasing amount of waste flowing into their communities. As local municipalities fight to prevent the influx of toxic waste, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources continues to permit Class II injection wells and welcome millions of gallons of hazardous waste from inside and outside the state. In 2012 almost six hundred million gallons of toxic fracking waste was dumped on Ohio communities via injection and almost sixty percent of that came from out of state."

At 6am this morning, members of Rising Tide Toronto successfully shut down construction for Enbridge's Line 9 pipeline in North Toronto. Five people, including two priests, locked down to equipment to prevent further work on this project. Approximately 40 workers were sent home for the day and activists continue to occupy the construction site.

So we were up early today! Folks have locked down to equipment on Enbridges construction site in North Toronto. Please support the people putting their bodies on the line at #lockdownline9 by contacting the National Energy Board right now. Tell them to reject Enbridge's  #Line9 reversal proposal, and to respect First Nations and the Canadian constitution.  Let them know that communities across Ontario are saying no to Enbridge's #Line9 reversal. Enbridge has stated that they will decommission this pipeline if its reversal is not approved.  Tell the #NEB to say no to Line 9.

Call them Toll free: 1-800-899-1265
Email them at info@neb-one.gc.ca

please share and have a great day! “The National Energy Board has not approved the reversal of the Enbridge Line 9 pipeline. Amidst outstanding land claims and treaty violations all along the route, there has been no consultation with First Nations. This pipeline must be decommissioned and construction towards this project must stop.” – Amanda Lickers, Member of Six Nations of Grand River

“We are taking a stand today because this project will facilitate the expansion of the tar sands. Moreover, this reversal puts the millions of people along line 9 route at risk.” – Meghan Mills, Rising Tide Toronto

"The health of Aamjiwnaang is suffering from the effects from Canada's Chemical Valley as a result of Environmental Racism. We need to act now in defence of the land we depend on before Enbridge permanently destroys our territories. This is a human rights issue that effects future generations of all peoples.” – Vanessa Gray, Aamjiwnaang and Sarnia Against Pipelines .
