Call To Action: Save Social Security Nov 30th. Sign Petition

The Republicans on the Deficit committee want to cut Social Security tell them Hell NO!. November 30, today, Hit your representatives in congress hard, call, email, let them know "Hands off Social Security"!

he Co-Chairs of the president’s Deficit Commission have proposed deep cuts to Social Security under the guise of reducing the budget deficit. They want to cut benefits for middle-class workers and reduce annual Cost of Living Adjustments. On top of that, they want to increase the retirement age to 69.
We must stop them!
Tuesday, November 30, is the National Call-In Day to say “No!” to Social Security and Medicare benefit cuts. We need every person to call their senators and representative and demand that they keep Social Security intact. Nothing can happen to Social Security unless Congress lets it.
Call the Capitol Switchboard at
(800) 962-3524 or (202) 224-3121.
When you call, tell them:
  • Cutting Social Security will not reduce the budget deficit: Social Security is funded separately, from employee contributions. It is entirely self-sufficient—even at today’s retirement age and funding levels—until 2037.
  • Americans are hurting right now: The only thing that these misbegotten changes to Social Security and Medicare will do is to harm its beneficiaries—the disabled, the retired, the middle class, and the poor.
  • Every dollar paid out from Social Security goes right back into the economy. People who receive Social Security house, feed, and clothe themselves with the payments.
  • Face the elephant in the room: Military spending must be cut. Progressives members will be in DC lobbying Congresscut military spending while the rest of the country makes calls on November 30.
Let’s make this a call-in day that Congress will never forget.

We Need More Whistle Blowers Because Governments and the Filthy Rich Lie

The classified diplomatic cables released by online whistle-blower WikiLeaks and reported on by news organizations in the United States and Europe provided often unflattering assessments of foreign leaders, ranging from U.S. allies such as Germany and Italy to other nations like Libya, Iran and Afghanistan.

Hetep and Respect I did my time in the military service during Vietnam. If anything is clear it is that the government and the filthy rich lie. My view is honesty is the best policy.
A Cultural Literacy Minute: Governments and the filthy rich lie. It is the job of the people who the government belongs to, to get the truth,the facts and nothing but the facts so help us God.
The docs were offered to the Gov't to redact what needed to be redacted and they refused. The wanted an all or nothing deal and they got it.
I voted for President Obama and open government. He has made government more open just look at the White House website. Or better yet what the VA has to report to us ex-soldiers it's customer this year, sharing part of its readiness reports. Big improvement. That does not mean his government does not lie to us the people as all government do. I want the facts I don't care who is in office.
We just got the facts from a whistle blower Mr. Potter a great American hero like all whistle blowers that expose lies and propaganda designed to fool us the public. Disinformation designed to disrupt a citizens ability to make judgement based on the facts, like the body count crap from Nam.
Le Monde said another memo asked U.S. diplomats to collect basic contact information about U.N. officials that included Internet passwords, credit card numbers and frequent flyer numbers. They were asked to obtain fingerprints, ID photos, DNA and iris scans of people of interest to the United States, Le Monde said.
If our government will do this to UN officials what do you think they will do to you. Or what do you think George, the torturer, Bush has already had done to you and I.
If George, the torturer, Bush goes to London to try to sell his book he could be arrested like Pinochet the international torture criminal.
What we need now is a Bush whistle blower now that his book is out and his lies are in print. What really happened on 911?
Next we need someone in that Republican Corporate crack mule treasonous Supreme Court to blow the whistle on how tables and chairs (corporations) got the same rights as human beings.
Hero, not only is the whistle blow a hero in the best American tradition of the Republican Nixion felon era, I hope this courageous individual inspires at least Bush and SCOTUS whistle blowers to step forward on behalf of the middle class and the working man and woman and shine light on the filthy rich and into our government.

For discussion and more details see MSNBC/NewsVine

There are even some people on the right who get this, as Mr. Paul says when truth becomes treason we are in trouble. I to would like to see some Federal Reserve leaks. Now that might be enough to get Americans pissed enough to shut the Federal Reserve which, is not federal and has no reserves, down.

Ron Paul: ‘What we need is more WikiLeaks’

"Push Michael Moore Off a Cliff:" Health Insurance Corps Are Evil

MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann Plays Excerpt of Democracy Now! Interview With Health Insurance Whistleblower Wendell Potter on Industry’s Attack on Michael Moore’s "Sicko" Video

Concrete evidence that the Insurance corporations spent massive amounts of money (82 million) as a result of SCOTUS treasonous behavor, to trick the baggers into voting against their own health care interests. It has now been revealed from the inside that Insurance corporations are really a sham protection racket. In fact, if you paid the mob for protection you would get an organization with more integrity.

Let's Go To The Video Tape

It seems to me that the attack on Mr. Moore and SickO constitute criminal activity and a federal investigation is in order. This is on top of the fact that we already have sworn testimony before congress that insurance corporations hired doctors to kill patients for profit. If the AMA and the FDA are to have any credibility they must disassociate themselves from criminals.

Two things should happen as a result of Mr. Potter's brave revelations in his new book Death Spin. 1. everyone seriously interested in understanding and discussing Democratic Health Care Reform in America should see "SickO" and read Death Spin as a minimum.

We the American people, assuming jobs are back on track in 2012, must make putting the public Option back in HCR the number one election issue. When tables and chairs (Corporations,)who do not have the rights of humans, openly try to harm the American people they must be punished. The cat is out of the bag. In 2012, the only debate should be between single payer and a public option as the HCR upgrade. We must give the President and his party the massive mandate he needs to make this happen in the first 100 days of his second term.

For the real deal you have to see Amy Goodman, simply the best reporter in America since Walter Cronkite. Democracy Now did a whole series you should see on the great Mr. Potter and his new book.
I do not feel I have heard the news each day until I hear Amy.

If you comment please let us know if you
saw or plan to see SickO

The Two Stories of Thanksgiving 2010

{{Potd/2005-11-24 (en)}}Image via WikipediaStory one: Pilgrims sit down to eat with Native Americans, or Story two, Pilgrims sit down and eat Native Americans on "Thanksgiving". The question posed is, which is the real story? And how should you view and interact with the holiday thanksgiving?

In School, I learned that the Pilgrims had black hats and gold shinny buckles and sat down and had a wonderful meal with their friends the Native Americans in 1621. I thought this was the way things looked, because this is what my teachers and parents told me. This is not like Christmas, they wouldn't lie about this would they?

I was in middle age, before I learned that this was not the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help my teacher’s God. I would not say they “lied”, however, the Europeans that were invading Turtle Island did not have cloths as described. They whore much less flamboyant plain everyday work cloths. In addition, most Native Americans would tell you that these were not the friendliest folks that ever landed on Turtle Island.

Historians Joel A. Rogers, Dr. Rev. Ishakamusa Barashango and others report that 44 of the Pilgrims died in their first winter in America due to laziness and mental illness. Further, they report that not only did they fail to take the advice of the Native Americans regarding planting and providing for themselves. They actually stole corn from, killed and would eat the Native Americans and each other.

John Smith's Map of the Powhatan Nation he "renamed" Virginia - Larger Map

See the following quote from Captain John Smith (1580-1631) "So great was our famine that a savage we slew and buried, the poorer sort took him up again and ate him; and so did divers ones another boiled and stewed with herbs. And one amongst the rest did kill his wife, powdered her and had eaten part of her."

The General History of Virginia Fourth Book Page 294 (1606-1625)

So what is the real story of Thanksgiving? Did European Americans eat with Native Americans or did European Americans eat Native Americans?

In Closing, let me point out that the reason for informing you about the "The Two Stories of Thanksgiving", is to cause all Americans to think more deeply about this important American holiday. Should we stop celebrating Thanksgiving, No! Thanksgiving should and can be a Culturally Healthy event. As a general proposition families getting together to celebrate family unity, and the harvests of family and friends for the year, is a good thing.

However, we must have an accurate picture of the past, if Ma'at (Truth, balance) is to be served in the present and the future. So the bigger question is, what stories do we tell our children, regarding early American relationships to Native Americans. This holiday is a time to ask ( or re-ask) ourselves, What is, and what ought to be, our political, social and spiritual relationship to Native Americans?

See the Cultural Literacy Minutes below.

1. Who were the good and bad guys in American Cowboy and "Indian" movies of the 1960's and earlier?
Note: your answer to the above question will tell you something about your cultural orientation to Native Americans.

2. "Indian" = DoubleSpeak (Cultural Poisoning) - Antidote = Native American, Indigenous People, Mohawk, Chippewa, etc.

3. There are also Black Indians among us. This is the Third Story of Thanksgiving, click here.

To view a discussion with Native Americans and other Americans that has been going on for many years visit this link. WARNING This is the old Wild West of the Internet before spell check and before I knew anything about writing.

Our (Americans) relationship to our Native American brothers and sisters has not been Culturally Healthy. I have reactivated your ancestral memory about three of the stories, there are many more, learn about them. It is the Twenty First century, Obama is the President, God is in her heaven and we now have the tools to cure this dis-ease of telling less then the full historical truth to our children and each other.

It starts with you. So what are you going to do about it?

14 Ways 90 % Tax On Filthy Rich Fixes Our Economy

A return to Eisenhower-era 90% top tax rates helps fix our economy and country in several ways:

1) It makes it take longer to end up with a fortune. In fact it makes people build andearn a fortune, instead of shooting for quick windfalls. This forces long-term thinking and planning instead of short-term scheming and scamming. If grabbing everything in sight and running doesn’t pay off anymore, you have to change your strategy.

4) Combined with badly-needed cuts in military spending – we spend more on military than all other countries on earthcombined – taxing the wealthy ends budget deficits and starts paying off the massive Reagan/Bush debt. This reduces and ultimately eliminates the share of the budget that goes to pay interest. The United States now has to pay a huge share of its budget just to cover the interest on the borrowing that tax cuts made necessary. Paying off the debt would remove this huge drag on our economy. (Never mind that Alan Greenspan famously called for Bush’s tax cuts by saying it was dangerous to pay off our debt – now that same Alan Greenspan says we need to cut benefits to retired people because our debt is so high.)


14 Ways a 90 Percent Top Tax Rate Fixes Our Economy and Our Country | OurFuture.org

Another way to think about America's challenge of paying for what she wants is the Maximum Wage concept. We have all heard about the Minimum Wage, but what is the relationship between the two and what should it be?

What we are really talking about in this article is a kind of basic financial cultural literacy necessary to understand American human development and human development in general. A nation's rising economic development does not necessarily lead to rising human development (health, education and welfare) for its citizens. Every citizen should have a working knowledge of these relationships if one is to vote in one's self-interest. There are reasons we cannot let the corporate crack mules, known as TeaBaggers, turn America into a corpocracy.  For more information I recommend a  web site called Too Much. The site is an important resource on economic excess and inequality. Personally, I love the abundance of graphs for the average man at the site.

How do you think we should Pay for Health Care Reform and the other things our country needs.

Open Letter to the White Right - 2008 Election

The European American anti-racism activist Tim Wise, after the United States 2008 Midterm Election that produced the infamous TeaBag House of Representatives wrote, "An Open Letter to the White Right,On the Occasion of Your Recent, Successful Temper Tantrum". (Video)

In this article you will find the full text of Mr. Wise's letter and a video of him responding to questions regarding his letter. You will also meet the African American Cultural Traitor Allen West, the TeaBag Congressmen from Florida, responding to the letter on behalf of his constituents the Confederate Party, that drinks tea.

Tim Wise has lectured at over 600 universities and taught anti-racism technology to police, educators and other. In my opinion he was understandably pissed a at the lack of Cultural Health regarding some members of his ethnic group and their voting performance. Understandably, he did a most edifying rant, venting only as Tim can, his frustration with his fellows that every American should read and think about.
Cultural Health Alert
If you are culturally sensitive do not proceed beyond this point

Let's Go to the Video Tape

It is good to see Mr. Wise rise after the long night of November second. It is unfortunate to see the Sleeping Giant, Mr. West, still sleep at the cultural switch in broad daylight.


These are the opening remarks of Tim's letter. I can just imagine him sitting there, in the early hours of the morning looking at his TV and watching the map on the screen turning red. As an African American watching the same TV, this was not a good day. I must admit it did not occur to me at the time to call or email Tim, a fellow American who has worked long and hard to improve our National cultural Health, and ask him how he felt. Reading this letter was important because it enabled me to feel what Tim felt.

An Open Letter to the White Right, On the Occasion of Your Recent, Successful Temper Tantrum

Wed Nov 03, 2010 at 04:59:20 AM PST

For all y’all rich folks, enjoy that champagne, or whatever fancy ass Scotch you drink.

And for y’all a bit lower on the economic scale, enjoy your Pabst Blue Ribbon, or whatever shitty ass beer you favor.

Whatever the case, and whatever your economic station, know this…

You need to drink up.

And quickly.

And heavily.

Because your time is limited.

Real damned limited.

So party while you can, but mind the increasingly loud clock ticking away in the corners of your consciousness.

The clock that reminds you how little time you and yours have left.

Not much more now.

Tick, tock.

Tick, tock.



The letter in full can be found here.

This is one of those important letters you need to make time to share.

Black Chinese Suffers Racism in China

African Americans have their counterpart in China. An African Chinese Girl, Lou Jing, suffering from Cultural Poisoning thinks she is Chinese and gets a Cultural Literacy Shock when she enters a Chines talent show on National TV (Video)

Just in case you thought that Cultural Poisoning was limited to Africans in America, think again. While the West invented the dis-ease the East apparently has caught some of it too. China is 90% homogeneous and so is South Africa. In the interest of Cultural Literacy how do South Africans feel about Chinese Africans?

If you hit the link you are now probabley saying to yourself, just when I thought I heard everything, "Chinese is the new Black", wow.  No, we are not done yet with your Chinese Cultural Literacy Lesson. Where do the Chinese come from, DNA has the scientific answer. Finally, let us take an archeological and linguistic look at the historicity of the Chinese ethnic group.

I think you will agree, while this has been a short Cultural Literacy Lesson, it is an eye opener for most individuals that have only been taught from the narrow perspective of only one of the three major worldviews.

2010 Veterans Day, My Dad, Health Care and Me

Veterans day came this week and it reminded me of my dad and my time in the service. We both needed health care while serving and we got the best the Army had to offer. Shouldn't all citizens have access to quality health care?

My Dad on the left WWII and Aunk Vietnam

Did you know that most veterans don't get Veterans Administration health care unless they have a service related illness/injury or meet means test requirements? This means many "middle class" Vets don't have VA or any other health care. 25% of the nation's homeless are veterans. 2,226 Uninsured Vets Died in 2008Somehow these realities don't seem to me like we are remembering our veterans like we should. 
Health Care Reform (HCR) is now law, did you notice that there are no provisions in this law for "no cost health care" for all veterans? It strikes me today, that on these days of remembrance, we can and should do more for our vets and their families. I propose that we make the next HCR adjustment the addition of "No Cost, Veterans Administration Health Care benefits, including dental, for all veterans for all time. I would like to call it the Veterans No Cost HCR Amendment. 
This year America is at a cross roads that can profoundly effect our veterans for decades to come.In the Midterm Election (R)egressives have been elected to the house of Representatives. They have told the American People not only do they plan not to help our veterans but hurt veterans like me by revoking HCR and social security. My question to you is, how can we get the Regressives to be Progressive on the Veterans No Cost HCR Amendment? If we can not get the Regs to stand with our Vets, How do we get the job done anyway?
Veterans day and  Memoral day are both special to me. They are days to remember and honor our country's serving, served and fallen and our Culture's serving, served and fallen. On these days I especially remember my dad Marlin in World War II, and his fathers in World War Zero (WW0).

Every Holy Day (holiday)  is a Cultural Literacy opportunity. To learn more about World War Zero, hit the link and tell me what you think. Newsvine - Memorial Day - My Dad and My Culture

If you are one of the 2+ Billion Black people in the world you should know about WW0. All human beings should know about all the major wars, for it is our best defense against  having them happen again. If you are an African American in the military you have a duty to know about WW0, WWI and WWII, not just the last two.

Teabaggers WERE YOU MAD WHEN..........?

This is one of those short powerful pieces that every progressive and regressive in America should read.

After The 8 Years Of The Bush/Cheney Disaster, Now You Get Mad?

You didn't get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.
You didn't get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate Energy policy and push us to invade Iraq .
You didn't get mad when a covert CIA operative got outed.
You didn't get mad when the Patriot Act got passed.
You didn't get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us. You didn't get mad when we spent over 800 billion (and counting) on said illegal war.
You didn't get mad when Bush borrowed more money from foreign sources than the previous 42 Presidents combined.
You didn't get mad when over 10 billion dollars in cash just disappeared in Iraq .
You didn't get mad when you found out we were torturing people.
You didn't get mad when Bush embraced trade and outsourcing policies that shipped 6 million American jobs out of the country.
You didn't get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.
You didn't get mad when we didn't catch Bin Laden.
You didn't get mad when Bush rang up 10 trillion dollars in combined budget and current account deficits.
You didn't get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.
You didn't get mad when we let a major US city, New Orleans drown.
You didn't get mad when we gave people who had more money than they could spend, the filthy rich, over a trillion dollars in taxbreaks. You didn't get mad with the worst 8 years of job creations in several decades.
You didn't get mad when over 200,000 US Citizens lost their lives because they had no health insurance.
You didn't get mad when lack of oversight and regulations from the Bush Administration caused US Citizens to lose 12 trillion dollars in investments, retirement, and home values.
No.....You finally got mad
When a black man was elected President and decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick.
Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, job losses by the millions, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, and the worst economic disaster since 1929 are all okay with you, but helping fellow Americans who are sick...Oh, Hell No!!

Thursday November 11, is Veterans Day 2010 in the U.S. This very special day is a day to commemorate all military personnel who have served the U.S. in every war, and show our thanks and respect.

Hetep and Respect to all my fellow veterans especially, my Dad Marlin. I do not have the soldier's name in the picture but God bless you as you remind us.

My Quotes for the day,
In every war there is a war within a war

The Nation that fights together stays together, when they agree on the reason.

To win war everyone must know that there is a war - World War Zero (WW0)

No war should be forgotten, less we have it again.

Love the soldiers who walk among us and our honorable fighting ancestors, for it is because they stood that we stand today.

White America Has Lost Its Mind

The White brain, beset with worries, finally goes haywire in spectacular fashion. A remarkable view of European Americans suffering from Cultural Poisoning behaving like lunatics (Video)

Lets Go To The Video Tape

About 12:01 on the afternoon of January 20, 2009, the white American mind began to unravel.

It had been a pretty good run up to that point. The brains of white folks had been humming along cogently for near on 400 years on this continent, with little sign that any serious trouble was brewing. White people, after all, had managed to invent a spiffy new form of self-government so that all white men (and, eventually, women) could have a say in how white people were taxed and governed. White minds had also nearly universally occupied just about every branch of that government and, for more than two centuries, had kept sole possession of the leadership of its executive branch (whose parsonage, after all, is called the White House).

But when that streak was broken—and, for the first time, a non-white president accepted the oath of office—white America rapidly began to lose its grip.

As with other forms of dementia, the signs weren't obvious at first.
For the full Village Voice story click here

It is interesting to see Cultural Poisoning Detox play out in such a national public way on TV for all the world to see. The new TeaBag House will not actually go to congress until January 2011 and look what is already being reported.

- House plans to revoke HCR, Social Security and Medicare
- New Tea Party House members tell Latino Americans elected to house to go back to Mexico.
- New Tea Party House members say Republicans are "enemies of the people"

At first the title of this piece just seemed funny and a little over done, hmm,

Bush vs. Obama Job Creation Infographics (Video)

The Bush vs. Obama Jobs graph shows the last 3 years ending in October 2010 with a video explanation of what it means. The second Democrat vs. Republican Jobs graph shows the job growth under the last 11 Presidents. In 5 minutes you can cut past all the Jobs doublespeak and look at the job facts by party.

Let's Go To The Video Tape

Source: Click Here

If this is the reality, what happened in the mid term election. The criminal corporation's Astroturf Tea Party frightened and duped the American people, based on their Republican PR philosophy that the masses are asses and we can sell them anything.

This job creation reality that we are experiencing is consistent with Democrat vs Republican historic job creation facts see graph below:

What does it show? Under Democratic presidencies, job creation goes up. Every Democrat who followed a Republican did better than the Republican who preceded them. Every Republican who followed a Democrat produced fewer jobs than their predecessor.
And before anyone jumps on the "but that was because they got all the jobs that were started up under the previous administration," notice that where Republican followed Republican, the second administration came out worse than the first. When Democrat followed Democrat (for which we don't have nearly enough examples) job creation improved in the second administration.

And we can be thankful that McCain didn't follow Bush. Based on the pattern, we'd be down 8 million jobs by the time Palin finished off the first term.
Source: Click Here

The question is, how do we help the President and his Democratic TeamAmerica continue their successful job creation for us, despite the extremest TeaBag House that will be pushing their Masses Are Asses agenda to kill middle class jobs.

One thing that we can do is make sure everyone you know sees these Job Creation Infographics. Knowledge is power, the bad actors cannot dupe the middle class and workers in general if they have the job creation facts. We have come to far to turn back now. This is what change looks like, let's show it.

Exhibit Sheds Light on African Bible Secrets - Video

A British exhibit focusing on the African Bible "Book of the Dead" follows ancient Egyptians' journey from death to the afterlife. The West continues to improve its understanding of Classical African Civilization, Kemet (Ancient Egypt) Spirituality and Religion with this exhibit.

The video Should be viewed with a Cultural Health grain of salt for example, "The book of the Dead" is a culturally poisoned term used by invading grave robbers who stole the African Bible more properly called the Nuk Au Neter, from the tombs of buried Africans.

Let's Go to the Video Tape

Important Cultural Literacy exhibit. Very interesting video of the shinny ones' (ancestors) rarely seen artifacts.

The Nuk Au Neter was a testament to the positive life of the deceased African who it was buried with. It would contain spiritual elements of the departed's life like the 42 Commandments a subset of which, we still find in the modern religions of our day, Along with Classical African Words like Amen.

McDonald’s furious after San Francisco bans Happy Meals

"Fast food giant McDonald's said Wednesday it was 'extremely disappointed' at a ruling by San Francisco authorities banning high-calorie Happy Meals, which entice children to eat with free toys."

Cultural commentary:

Physical Health is important and those who attack our physical health with food poisoning for profit should be stopped. The golden arches of death should not be allowed to use the spider (clown) and toys to trick children into eating those gut bombs they call hamburgers . Children are not yet able to defend their health and may adults are not smart enough (can't overcome the immoral advertising to their children) to defend their children's health. 
Food poisoning for profit is as bad as Cultural Poisoning for profit.

America Got Screwed - Recovery Over - TP Gridlock in

America officially Screwed itself yesterday. The recovery has ended, Tea Party Gridlock is official. The just say no Republicans have the congress but will pass nothing. So what happens to the American middle class?

First what happened, the Democrats got a shock the Bush undead are back. The corporate criminals bought the Supreme Court. The treasonous supreme court bought the election by ruling that corporations are human beings and can put unlimited money into electing  corporate shills to congress. 

The bottom line is that corporate criminals were successful at joining forces with ignorance and hate in the Confederate Party, that drinks tea to defeat the will of the majority of American voters from the national election.

What does it all mean? it means the middle class is screwed. We are dead in the water. The government for all practical purposes is frozen. Recovery is dead, Education is dead, Health Care Reform will not improve. all efforts to take America to a new Green economy are dead, big oil is back. I hope I am wrong. but this is a big defeat for Dems and their middle class. The party of "no" was bad, the Tea Party is worse. I think their first major act will be to shut down the government. 

The good news is that their are now enough wacko's in the congress that the President has something to run against, the Republican congress. The corporations will run Palin for President because she is an empty vessel like Reagan and Bush. Only a small part of the electorate (base 30%) vote in the midterm. So now Dems know what will happen if they do not show up at the polls. The National election is a different story, most thinking Americans are in. If we do not wake up in 2012 then the corporations will officially own America and we will be living in an empty democracy. 

It will take some time to digest what just happened. Right now, I am very disappointed in America. It is hard to see the way forward, what do you think?
