Bill Black: Occupy Wall Street

A Message to All Police Officers, From Occupy Wall Street

Honesty: The Only Policy

Don’t believe the lies.  Don’t allow yourself to be spoon-fed information.  Real freedom, true freedom is not free (currently).  Every purchase is a vote.  Every donation is a vote.  Even when voting with dollars there are those out there blocking your way to the ballet box?  Don’t give up.  If you run into a roadblock, go around it, under it, over it or through it.  Let your voice be heard.  Let your vote be counted.  Don’t buy into the bull$hit.  Be the change you want to see in the world.  Buy the change you want to see in the world.

What do MasterCard, Visa, Bank of America, Paypal and Western Union all have in common? They help you pay for what you want? Well, yes… that is unless you want to help WikiLeaks make the world a better place. To see the shocking details, please go to http://www.wikileaks.org/banking-blockade.html

Conversations with Great Minds: Tom Shadyac

I’m posting this video because of the first half, but it’s all worth watching.  I’m looking forward to seeing Shadyac’s film “I AM”.  If you’ve seen it already I would love to hear your thoughts.  🙂

Renowned director and filmmaker, Tom Shadyac joins Thom for the first half hour of “Conversations with Great Minds”. They discuss how his love for film-making and how a very difficult experience led him to make a seminal documentary about some of the biggest challenges facing the world. In the second half of the show, Thom discusses the House’s decision to pass Speaker Boehner’s budget plan in the Weekly Rumble.

And here’s the trailer for “I AM”:

Oh!  And an awesome followup interview:

Government: Earth

The Robin Hood Tax

October 2nd

As if the month of October being Domestic Violence Awareness Month wasn’t good enough, October 2nd is the International Day of Non-Violence.  Could it be a coincidence that October 2nd is also Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday?  I think not.  😉

Be the change you want to see in the world.

The future depends on what we do in the present.

Is a world without violence such a hard thing to imagine?  We have far more in common than our disagreements would lead us to believe. We all want to be respected. We all want to be loved. We all want to be part of something. The good news? We are all a part of something; the human race. Now all that’s left to do is love and respect one another.  Violence?  Not even a part of the equation.

Christianity:

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

.

Buddhism:

“Putting oneself in the place of another, one should not kill nor cause another to kill.”

.

Confucianism:

“Never impose on others what you would not choose for yourself.”

.

Hinduism:

“One should never do that to another which one regards as injurious to one’s own self.”

.

Islam:

“Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you.”

.

Judaism:

“The stranger who resides with you shall be to you as one of your citizens; you shall love him as yourself.”

.

Taoism:

“Regard your neighbor’s gain as your own gain, and your neighbor’s loss as your own loss.”

.

Rodney King:

“Can’t we all just get along?”

.

Nothing to it, but to do it.  No more verbal hobbies.  We all need to put these words into action.  Be kind to one another, respect each other and love one another.  Now go play nice.  🙂

.

Happy Birthday Gandhi!
