WHAT HAS BEEN ALLOWED IS THE INCURSION OF AN OLIGARCHY

In my last blog written in July 2017, I opened with the following observation: Within the core of our freedoms, lie the avenues powerful individuals use to take away the rights of citizens and the controls of government designed and evolved to serve all.  Americans are now aware of the reality that subversive forces have made excessive headway in destroying our rights. What has been…

THE COUP TO DESTROY THE AMERICAN DREAM

Within the core of our freedoms, lie the avenues powerful individuals use to take away the rights of citizens and the controls of government designed and evolved to serve all. Americans are now aware of the reality that subversive forces have made excessive headway in destroying our rights. What has been allowed is the incursion of an Oligarchy: The few exploiting the many.  We are…

ENDING THE FUTILITY CAUSED BY INACTION BLOG PART III

It is true that humanity is nearing a point where we have poisoned our planet. We have expanded until we are in danger of exhausting our options and now hope science can enhance the chances of our survival. We continue to increase the number of people that need food, clothing, shelter, medical care, meaningful employment and security based upon the rule of law. We Earthlings…

ARE WE AWAKE? PART II of III

When I was about fourteen, I was given a photo of my maternal grandfather who had died long before I was born. I picked up the photo and stared into my own eyes, like looking into a mirror. Strange energy tingled through me. I still recall that connection. What I learned changed the way I got to know people. As a teacher, I saw my…

CHALLENGING A FAILED POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC SYSTEM PART I of III blogs

America is now led by people who have power because they do not follow the ethical and moral concepts that I once thought inviolate. We are experiencing the exact opposite of what I was taught, what I taught students, and what I believe. I am being forced to re-examine the values that have guided me for over 77 years, and to try to understand those…

LIBERTARIANS ARE PIRATES

Libertarians now working to control legislatures and governments find these words offensive: WE THE PEOPLE These words are the basis of our government. The government that has brought people together to build America. America does not exist to support those who feel that it is their right to profit from or destroy collective efforts like public schools, environmental protections, and laws designed to stop those…

Getting Our Heads Out Of The Morass

Edward R. Murrow once said: “I am in a financial morass from which I am unable to extricate myself.” Many States are in a political morass as a result of a planned assault on America. The question is, how do we extricate ourselves? In Arizona, one of the most corrupt states, leaders are emerging who know how. They use facts and data, and social media…

NEVER AGAIN! NOW THE EVIDENCE IS IRREFUTABLE…

NOW THE EVIDENCE IS IRREFUTABLE… While America was asleep at least three groups have moved to control American Education: Group one, the most damaging, is motivated by gaining access to the tax dollars citizens pay for public education. They hide behind a pretense of serving children and building America’s future. They are ruthless pirates who have no allegiance to anything but their own wealth and…

The Ignorant Mindset Destroying American Education

To get the most out of this blog, view Ted Talks 2011 – Knowledge Is Power.  #1:  Sir Ken Robinson; and  #5: Salman Kahn, and the Kahn Academy. I selected these two excellent presentations for many reasons, but the most important reveal is when Bill Gates comes on stage with Salman Kahn. His reaction and comments – those of a major player in the reform…

We Honor Diane Ravich

I finished reading Reign of Error as my family explored Colorado’s  beauty, not long  after stopping at 12,180 feet above sea level, overlooking the Continental Divide and Trail Ridge Road. That eagle’s view of beauty, and my mind’s view of America, made the book even more special.  From that vantage point, with Diane’s information filling my head, I thought of the America We The People…
