The reason I love VP Joe Biden is his brain doesn’t have an off switch so I never know what word energies are going to come out of his mouth, like a few weeks ago when he correctly stated “There is no Republican Party.” Actually, the party of racist bigoted old rich white guys has been devolving since the night President Obama (Sir Dude )was first elected in 2008.
And that is why I’ve been puzzled for the past few years with the DNC‘s reluctance to back their fellow Democrats in regards to their election campaigns. Even more shocking is that instead of focusing on the mid terms of 2014, you, your colleague’s, and moderate pundits are pimping Hillary for 2016.
To top that off, last time I checked there were over 40 congressional persons leaving office this year, including 18 Democrats. If that weren’t enough, there are 36 states with gubernatorial races along with other state races this year. One would think that with the GOP in utter disarray this would be the perfect storm of opportunity in regards to winning all of these elections and returning our nation on the path to sanity.
As I’ve written many times before, each of us, individually and collectively, are responsible for our thoughts, words, and actions as these are energy which creates reality at any given moment. A month or so ago Rachel Maddow, Wordsmith Superhero extraordinaire, showed a chart of GOP appearances on MSM Sunday news programs that far exceeded those of Democrats. Why aren’t more of you out there spinning Democratic points of view??
Then a week or two ago, writer and wife of Sen. Sherrod Brown, Connie Schultz was on another MSNBC program. They were discussing what some tea bagger had said when Connie cringed and spoke up, basically telling the others that when you repeat their offense and negative word energies they are only feeding the GOP’s already bloated ego’s.
Case in point, what I call The Milbank Moment. Back in the spring of 2011 Dana Milbank called on other Wordsmith Superhero’s to stop talking and writing about Sarah Palin for one month. Most of them did and Sarah was toast just a few weeks later, her presidential aspirations crushed like a pistachio under an elephants foot (pun intended).
My point is that they GOP are very skilled Wordsmith Super Villains and have been for some time so all of you need to bone up on using key words to gin up the game. For instance, never use the word energy “entitlement”! Use “social safety net”, “food poverty” and “food security”. Like everything else, government is a form of business so never use the word energy “tax”, instead call it “revenue”. Or when discussing rebuilding our crumbling country, call it “an investment on the future”. Are you getting the picture now?
Being an optimistic creature it isn’t an insurmountable task to take back both houses of congress as well as many gubernatorial races, it just takes some strategy on multiple fronts to find what I call the simple stupid solutions.
First and foremost Eric Holder needs to utilize DOJ, FEC, and other agencies to aggressively go after the states that have gerrymandered districts, passed laws restricting voting rights, and allow ex-felon’s the right to vote. I would also encourage you and yours to have organizations like the ACLU, Southern Poverty Law Center, Anti Defamation League, and others to go after these laws as well as getting people registered to vote. As a last resort, bring in Sir Dude to sign off on some executive orders in those states that have taken advantage of voter rights.
You and others need to encourage Democratic deep pockets to start focusing their individual and collective wallets on state and the mid-term elections as opposed to Hillary’s in 2016. Once we become the majority party again, we can start the rebuilding of our nation on the mighty shoulders of empathy and compassion.
ISSUES TO FOCUS ON THIS YEAR
The three top issues facing our country are the environment, the false fear porn, and revenue generation, all of which are fixable with simple stupid solutions. In regards to the environment, 2014 is going to be remembered as the year of the three F’s – Floods, Fire, and Famine. And it’s not just our country that is and will be hammered, it’s happening around Spaceship Earth because of the actions of the few and space weather.
The floods coming this spring are going to wreak havoc in our nation’s breadbasket. As I wrote Sir
Dude last month “with peak oil and gaslong gone, and as the last of Spaceship Earth’s resources dwindle, these companies have to dig and drill deeper into the planetary crust, thus agitating the fault lines and creating earthquakes. With many very old nuclear plants sitting atop these fault lines and heavy spring flooding that’s expected in 2014, this is a recipe for disaster because of the weight of the water on top of these now fragile fault lines in addition to those highly polluted waters spreading across America’s breadbasket.”
With famine and food poverty/security worldwide, the American west has experienced a 5 year and counting drought, making not only animal feed scarce, but fruits, nuts, and vegetables for The Tribe as well in the very near future. With extreme weather now the norm for many reasons – geo-engineering being a big one - this will also affect the growers in the SE region of the US this year.
Our nation’s livestock populations, particularly cattle, are at a 60 year low. One reason is that freak fall snow storm that killed over 75,000head of cattle in ND. As for sheep and other livestock they tend to abort their fetuses or outright die because of Monsanto Roundup Ready Alfalfa (RRA) and other chemicals in their feed.
In regards to fire, it’s not just the American west coast that is suffering but many regions around the planet. Because of climate change, Spaceship Earth’s failing geomagnetic field, and space weather, it’s not going to be just fires, but there will be an uptick of volcano’s going off this year, displacing people and destroying food supplies.
The simple stupid solution? Start promoting urban farming,edible landscaping in local, state, and national parks, raising backyard chickens, etc. But you and First Lady Obama need to start these programs NOW! Food poverty is a HUGH problem in our country and others so it needs to a major focus this year.
FALSE FEAR PORN
When it comes to 9/11 and the start of the false fear war on 1.6 billion Muslims around Spaceship Earth, it has got to stop and we need to apologize to the planet for our collective actions against them. I’ll take the word of thousands of architects and engineers over the government that this was an inside job after the tech bubble of 2000 burst, to benefit the few , including Bush/Cheney family and friends. It is time that Truth of that day comes so we can utilize what little revenue that is coming in to rebuild our crumbling nation, creating jobs and lowering the income inequality.
Having worked in the defense industry I have seen the revolving door between DC and the false fear industry. Retired military, heads of the various agencies, and congress go to work for these companies or create their own to deepen their pockets at the expense of The Tribe (Humanity) worldwide. This morally reprehensible and unethically behavior has got to stop! Besides, diplomacy is so much cheaper in the long run.
Once we win back both houses of congress, laws will need to be passed to end this ever growing threat to all members of The Tribe.
As all American’s know congress has been bought by the large multinational businesses and banks so it appears highly unlikely the revenue loopholes with be closed anytime soon. However, that doesn’t mean the suggestion shouldn’t come up! Talk about it to the hilt, but also include suggestions like what I read recently from an economist - since companies like Wal-Mart pay virtually no revenue and no wages they are the biggest welfare “queens” in our country.
Therefore, propose that at the end of each fiscal year the Fed’s tax these companies for every dime that US tax payers had to provide to support their employee’s! Simple stupid, right!! Now this idea would really get the base going, generate revenue, and create jobs! It would need to be a multi-agency effort – IRS, USDA, SSI.
So again, please unity the Democratic Party with positive word energies and actions with clear intentions on what all of YOU can do to for The Tribe and our country.
Many thanks for taking the time to read my sincerest word energies. It’s all about “being the change I wish to see in the world.” Gandhi
