Thank You Jah

Thank You Jah - Boom Viniyard

Let's make this a universal thanksgiving for all people and beings, not just a Yankee Thanksgiving unfortunately neutralized by slaughtering millions of sentient beings that we call turkeys, so here is a thanksgiving to Jah, the Rastafarian/Reggae term for the universal Creator.

This musical expression of thanks is especially poignant, because Boom Viniyard is acknowledging thanks to Jah despite the awful hurricane destruction that devastated the Caribbean several months ago.

Media Quote for the Day

"Our dominant media are ultimately accountable only to corporate boards whose mission is not 'life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness' for the whole body of our republic, but the aggrandizement of corporate executives and shareholders." — Bill Moyers

Amazing Abundance

It's creativity like this that proves Jean Campbell's thesis--there is Abundance all around us. We only need to open ourselves up to the possibilities. Imagine making water out of air....Some Canadians did; Four Elements has created a household appliance that makes water out of air. This invention will definitely "crimp up" the plans of those creepy corporate CEO who were on course to control the world's water supply. So much for the predicted water wars.

It is definitely time for what Jean likes to call A-Bun-Dance.

Another Bush Corporate Media Myth Exposed

The corporate media has done an outstanding job of limiting debate and options available to the American people. The corporate propaganda promotes the myth that the US media is liberal.
The actual bias is "corporate control" not liberal theology.

How angry would the American people be with George Bush and the corporations of America if it was well known that we could have deposed Saddam Hussein without an invasion, no loss of life, and without bankrupting America. The truth? Saddam Hussein offered to leave Iraq weeks before Bush invaded Iraq and this has been "KNOWN" all along and NOT been reported. A few reports have emerged in the US over the years but the media refused to report it the story has not become well known.

Doubt what I say? Then check out the multiple sources here.

Bush and the corporate media and their cronies lie to America and they have made huge profits from this.

Seems to me we need some new laws and regulations. What if..

No One could Profit from War. Corporations like to say they have the same "rights" as people (which I still dispute.) How about corporations have to be liable and responsible for their actions just like everyone else. Therefore, anything defense related has to be done at cost...actual costs NOT inflated costs. Corporate officers and top management should be prosecuted for any criminal decisions and activities that they participate in. Corporate decisions and policies should have a paper trail that can be accessed by regulatory authorities.

Media Corporations have to replace their fake news programs with citizen journalists chosen by local communities and regional communities that they serve. We will always have a need for sound local news reporting.

We should also realize that there are other areas where profit should not be allowed. I'm thinking clean air and clean water....these are basic human rights and corporations are currently trying to buy up the world's water. In fact, our nations banks are currently engaged in trying to purchase water rights in their unquenchable greed...the unquenchable greed that has currently landed us into our current economic predicament.

Shouldn't our Justice System go after the evildoers "especially" if they were the leaders making the biggest profits from this mess we are in? It's not about revenge it's about deterrence. We need to put an end to folks profiting from lying, stealing, torturing and killing for profits and/or power. The big fish should not be let off the hook if our justice system is going to be set right.

I remain hopeful that some on the extreme right are not lost in their Kool-Aid addiction and they will start to question many of the myths they currently swallow and will join the rest of the grassroots as we put the pressure on all our elected officials to serve our nation honorably,


Mosquito Update: Lately the posts have been sporadic due to new endeavors that the folks on this blog are exploring including the possibility of relocating to another communities for Alma, Star and possibly Mosquito.

acCongratulation to Mac on the recent publication of his book. Way to Go Mac!

Quote for the day

What is objectionable, what is dangerous about extremists, is not that they are extreme, but that they are intolerant. The evil is not what they say about their cause, but what they say about their opponents.--Robert F. Kennedy
