The First Peace by Black Elk

The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us ~ Black Elk

Why Are We Not Thriving?

While growing up, Foster Gamble wondered what the secret behind creation of the Universe was. Then as he grew to adulthood, he wondered why most people of the world were not thriving. In the documentary, “Thrive,” Mr. Gamble takes you through his stages of seeking answers, discovering more questions, and the information that took him down paths he never expected. What’s more, Mr. Gamble offers solutions of what each of us can do to create a world where everyone thrives.

Synopsis of Thrive from his website, http://www.thrivemovement.com -

“THRIVE is an unconventional documentary that lifts the veil on what’s REALLY going on in our world by following the money upstream — uncovering the global consolidation of power in nearly every aspect of our lives. Weaving together breakthroughs in science, consciousness and activism, THRIVE offers real solutions, empowering us with unprecedented and bold strategies for reclaiming our lives and our future.”

The Supreme Court ruled that Corporations are people. Really? Do corporations breath, eat, breed and bleed? I didn’t think so. Since that ruling, all America has seen our politicians sell themselves and our country to the highest bidder with disastrous results.

It wasn’t just one, or even two, things that lead America to economic destruction. Wall Street played a big role, but so did corporations, as well as a few other sectors. By flooding money into our elections, and paying for lobbyists that influenced government policies, corporations and the wealthy gained huge benefits. The rich got richer with little or no regard to how it would affect the rest of America. Because of this, the rest of us watched our wages and benefits drop, and even worse, jobs disappear.

US Preventative Jim McGovern has proposed a constitutional amendment that would make it clear, once and for all, that corporations are not people. One has to really wonder if the Supreme Court judges really believed the American people would never catch on? This ruling is an example of how corrupt the whole system is. It’s time for us to set it right. Watch Representative McGovern’s discuss his proposed amendment.

Why Occupy Wall Street Needs Michael Bloomberg

Keith Olbermann: Why Occupy Wall Street needs Michael Bloomberg

Times are tough and have been for a long time here in the United States, with no signs of getting better any time soon. People are fed up with austerity. Thus enters the Occupy Wall Street protests.

Your view of the Occupy Wall Street movement will depend on where you are getting your information from. Major news medias? In most cases, you won’t get even a closely accurate coverage of the motivation behind OWS. So where can we turn to get the more accurate news and information regarding OWS, what their complaints are and how they are being received by the authorities?

Oddly enough, most of the unbiased news comes from news agencies outside of the US. Such as RT found at rt.com/usa/news and Al-Jazeera found at http://www.aljazeera.com/news/americas/. One we have here inside the US is Keith Olbermann.

In the video below, Keith gives a special commentary on why Occupy Wall Street Needs New York City’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg

Seven Economic Lies Told By Republicans

Seven Economic Lies Told By Republicans

Times are hard across the world and people’s voices are not being heard by their political leaders. Citizens are weary of unemployment, underemployment, high costs of fuel, food, housing, health care and education. They’re tired of bailing out wealthy institutions and seeing the wealthy get richer, while they, the middle and poor classes, get poorer. Here in the United States, Republicans and the Tea Party have made several statements to justify feeding the already wealthy, while promoting even deeper cuts to benefits to the middle and poor classes. Here is a video that states the facts, one by one, with historic facts.
