Fukushima; Pacific Ocean Catastrophe Confirmed

The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts has reported the first large study which confirms what has been said from day one, on 3/11/2011, that Fukushima could be a major long term life extinction event, rather than how it is portrayed now; as a minor 10% of Chernobyl type of accident.


According to the study, there are major genetic changes happening in ocean life forms 600 miles out from Fukushima. This was discovered through the many buoys put out by Woods Hole. They found due high radiation levels in ocean water far away from Fukushima, which in turn caused massive genetic changes in ocean creatures. 


(Warning; the following videos contain adult language.)

A Fukushima Pacific Ocean Catastrophe Has Been Confirmed 4/4/12 kevin d. blanch:

http://youtu.be/84pszFh7n9U via @youtube

In the next video below, Kevin reports that radioactive contaminated fish are being exported to other countries from Japan, without radiation testing on either end (and that eating these fish causes harm.)


Kevin is reporting that these fish test 37 times HIGHER than the emergency safety limits allowed for people in Japan, the few times that they were tested. 


The Japanese are desperate for money… where will they get it? They are in deeper debt than the Greeks, who are toasted and roasted financially speaking. Now Fukushima is putting a financial nail in their coffin. 


No wonder the government is telling everyone it is safe to move back to Fushima. Could they be telling anyone anything to get the least bit of money short term, and avoid legal costs and damages long term? Time will tell. 


The Japanese cannot eat their own food or drink their own water, in vast areas around Fukushima, because in their opinion it is too dangerous to just eat food or water without testing it, or knowing the source is absolutely clean. 


According to Kevin, many people in Japan have stopped drinking any water or eating any food grown in Japan, because they either do not trust the growers, the food, the water or the authorities who say it is all ‘safe’. 


Who really knows where radiation contaminated food, fish, fowl, beef, chicken or liquids may come from, because desperate farmers and fishermen may mislabel it or drive somewhere else to sell it. Fishermen may dock in a different port that does not have the taboo Fukushima label on it. 


It is too hard for individuals to test for radiation in food or water, without an expensive $15,000 radiation tester that specifically tests food or water for low level radiation that may cause harm long term. A standard Geiger Counter, even an expensive one, will NOT test food or water for low level radiation, unless it has HIGH amounts of surface radiation contamination. 

The only way to be safe from eating an invisible, tasteless and deadly radioactive poison  is to avoid all food grown within 250-500 miles of a nuclear accident. This means most of Japan is out of bounds for ‘safe’ food or drink. 


So why is Japan still growing food, harvesting fish and then selling it all overseas? Hmmmmm, interesting question….. 




If you do not know what is going on and why Kevin is so upset, in the following video, Kevin explains what has been going on for the last year, since March 11th, 2011.

Ukraine raises $785m to seal Chernobyl under new ‘shell’




The current sarcophogus is shown above, along with a short video of what the workers have to put up with just to keep it from collapsing in on itself. Ukraine is spending a huge percentage of its total yearly budget on the consequences of the Chernobyl accident. Because this leaking steel shield is at the end of its life, it needs a new ‘lid’ put over it. 


“The ruined nuclear reactor at Chernobyl is to be sealed within a 20,000-tonne steel shield designed to prevent any further radiation from escaping for 100 years. It would be large enough to enclose St Paul’s Cathedral in London, or the Statue of Liberty. “


http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2011/apr/19/ukraine-funding-chernobyl-arch#start-of-comments

The total costs to build and move this arch over the grave of a Chernobyl reactor are estimated to be 1.8 BILLION Dollars. My bet is that this will double or  more before they are done. 


Nuclear power has a failure rate that is terrible. The industry is covering up and lying about a HUGE nuclear disaster about every 25 years or so. These covered up disasters are growing worse, and becoming not just national disasters, but potential global life extinction events, as with Fukushima. We can no longer afford the lies, coverups, secrecy and propoganda put out by the industry, utililies and regulators, in addition to their government allies.


Assuming that this horrible nuclear facility accident rate continues, TAXPAYERS can look forward to having to build and maintain 4 of these every 100 years totaling 4,000 of these huge concrete/steel sarcophogi in just 1,000 years. 

Since each arch only lasts 100 years, humanity will probably spend all of the excess beyond just basic survival in rebuilding, maintaining and operating these huge toxic radioactive waste containers which will have to be rebuilt over and over and over again for at least 25,000 years. 

Multiply 2 BILLION Dollars times 4000 of these covers, and that still does not BEGIN to solve the problem of what to do with nuclear waste which also must be guarded 25,000 years or longer. 

How does nuclear energy have any future at all, assuming rate payers and the nuclear industry have to pay for all of this? The answer is NONE. That is why they are foisting the cost off on the whole globe and all of it’s citizens, who are lied to and fed propoganda about how ‘safe’ and ‘cheap’ nuclear power is. 



Yup, now fork over another 2 TRILLION for another one of these accidents at Fukushima. Japan is bankrupt; they just do not realize it yet. maybe that is why they did not try to fix it and just let three reactors melt through. They KNEW that they did not have the money in the bank to even TRY to fix it. 


At least Russia tried to stop the corium from going into the ground with 1 million people. Japan tossed 50 people and some sea water at the problem and hoped for the best.

Uranium Mines Dot Navajo Land, Neglected and Still Perilous

CAMERON, Ariz. — “In the summer of 2010, a Navajo cattle rancher named Larry Gordy stumbled upon an abandoned uranium mine in the middle of his grazing land and figured he had better call in the feds. Engineers from the Environmental Protection Agency arrived a few months later, Geiger counters in hand, and found radioactivity levels that buried the needles on their equipment.” Read more at;http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/01/us/uranium-mines-dot-navajo-land-neglected-and-still-perilous.html

Bottom line, native peoples all over the world continue to be exposed to high levels of toxic radiation such as radon, uranium and radium both by inhaling the radioactive dust and by direct exposure to exterior radiation from the exposed ore that is blowing around with the wind. 
Radon and radium as well as uranium are known to cause bone, liver, breast and lung cancer.

It has been proven that these radioactive elements cause harm as well as deaths, because Congress passed the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act, which was enacted to pay for the health consequences and deaths caused by uranium mining. So far, the program has granted “$1.5 billion for 23,408 approved claims since it was enacted in 1990.”

Uranium Mining; Broken Promises, Broken Rainbow

On December 1974 Congress passed Public Law 93-531 “The Navajo-Hopi Land Settlement Act”. It authorized the partitioning of the Joint Use Area (JUA) and established the Navajo-Hopi 

Indian Relocation Commission (NHIRC) which moved Navajo people from the reservation lands. Countless of the most traditionally and culturally intact Dineh (Navajo) people were forced to re-locate to cities like Shiprock and Tuba City.


This 1985 documentary traces the history of both tribes and the events that led to this devastating land grab by Peabody Coal and Bechtel Corporations, assisted by our own government(major players included Barry Goldwater, Morris Udall, John McCain, and President Ford). The goal: access, oil, gas, coal and uranium ore.

War is a Racket

Note; there is some adult language in the videos below. 

“War is a Racket by Smedley Butler is a famous speech denouncing the military industrial complex. This speech by two-time Congressional Medal of Honor recipient exposes war profits that benefit few at the expense of many. 

Throughout his distinguished career in the Marines, Smedley Darlington Butler demonstrated that true patriotism does not mean blind allegiance to government policies with which one does not agree.”


Wars have to started on lies. What kind of lies? Until the Civil War, there were no medals. A medal that rewards people for killing other people is part of the propoganda of war. 

War propoganda also consists of war being sold by God’s representatives, in church and political houses of worship. Those who sell war worship in the temple where many false idols of money, power and influence are the subject of adoration and honor. 

The only people who vote on whether to go to war are the few, the 1% representatives. These reps are most often NOT part of the war, have never served in war trenches, and have never been exposed to the horrors of war. 

These 1% representatives do not lead the soldiers into battle. They only visit ‘front lines’ when the shooting stops and when they are sure there is no risk of being shot at. 

These 1% representatives of the military industrial complex are safely tucked into their beds at night, while spending taxpayer money on underground shelters, where they can hide if things do not go as well as they planned for. 

The huge no bid profits contained in war and the fight against ‘terrorism’, almost ensures that war will continue forever, unless people rise up and stop the military industrial complex. Even President Eisenhower in his Farewell address warned against the military industrial complex. 


The military industrial complex has only GROWN in both power, influence and total wealth since he warned us against this tide of war propoganda. 
The host of Survivor tells it like it is in his YouTube Video;
The 1% loves to divide and conquer. They use propoganda on the mass media that they own, and convince people that they need to fight each other. Meanwhile, they are laughing behind the scenes, taking all of the money, and slurping up taxpayer money via corporate welfare. 
Most of these large military industrial related corporations not only do not pay ANY taxes, they also are making record profits in this awful economic time, AND they collect corporate welfare, all at the same time. For them, this is win win win. For all of us, it is lose, lose, lose.  When asked to stop collecting this ‘socialist’ entitlement money, they say that would be ‘raising taxes’ on them. 
The war budget is increasing in this awful economic time, while everyone else is being cut to the bone. Where is the money going? To the 1%, who are making record profits, paying no taxes, and hoodwinking everyone with their lies, propoganda and mass media mind ‘programming’.

UN Proposal To Establish Ecocide; Prevent Damage To Environment

LONDON (AlertNet) – “Current environmental measures do not go far enough to protect the planet, argues Polly Higgins, an international environmental lawyer and the author of “Eradicating Ecocide”, a book about criminalising the destruction of ecosystems.” http://youtu.be/0gHnBbEOjVc

“Voted by the Ecologist as one of the “Worlds Top 10 Visionary Thinkers” for her earlier work advancing the Universal Declaration of Planetary Rights.

In April 2010 Polly submitted a legal proposal to the United Nations to create a 5th Crime Against Peace – that crime is the crime of Ecocide.

Polly has submitted a second proposal to the United Nations: the Crime of Ecocide. Ecocide is a 5th Crime Against Peace, yet to be recognized alongside Genocide, Crimes Against Humanity, War Crimes and Crimes of Aggression.”


For more information about book and about this concept, go to; http://thelazyenvironmentalist.blogspot.com/2011/01/blog-post.html
If humanity does not value human life, the Earth or each other enough to protect these, then destruction of all of these is the only outcome. We are traveling down this road to destruction of all life on the planet. We are committing genocide of not only humans, but animals, insects, plants, trees and all life on the planet. How? 

We are using DU weapons globally, with devastating results. Read; Depleted Uranium Effects InThe Human Body, via A Green Road Blog  http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/03/depleted-uranium-effects-in-human-body.html

We are not respecting Earth and the miracle of life on the planet. Here is just one way that this is happening; 12 reasons why all nuclearpower plants must be shut down http://agreenroad.blogspot.com/2012/03/12-reasons-why-all-nuclear-power-plants.html
Large corporations lie systematically, while taking over all democratic institutions. To see how it works in just one monopolistic industry, read about the; 30ways the nuclear industry deceives everyone; 

There may still be time to turn things around with a Green Revolution, by passing laws against ecocide, and prosecuting those who violate this law. But even more important is the need for each individual to take actions in their own life, to make a positive difference.

Switch utility company energy providers so that you use only Zero Carbon renewable energy, such as wind, water, solar. Many states allow you to switch, with just a phone call. 

Use more fair trade, local, and green products and service providers, such as driving all electric cars, hydrogen fuel cells, etc.  Support the solutions, rather than the problems. Stop using things like styrofoam plates, plastic bags and nuclear power related products.

Eat organic foods, and buy only natural products not made from oil products. Avoid plastics whenever possible. Do not buy hardwood products from the Amazon rain forest. 

Make your home more energy efficient. Start small and keep adding things, like CFL or even better; LED lights. Switch to more energy efficient appliances, and read labels when shopping for energy use on items such as TV, etc. 

Reduce your carbon footprint and live more in harmony with Earth and her natural processes, rather than in ways that destroy her and all human life.

Go inside and explore who you are. Explore the concept of consciousness. What is this, and how does it work? Where can consciousness be found, and how can it be accessed? Hint… start meditating and getting together with others who meditate. The reason to do this, is because we must open up to our dark side, the unconscious side that controls what we do and how we do it. 

Work on finding the root causes for addictions; such as shopping, gambling, drinking, drugs, etc. Everyone is addicted, it is only a choice of what we are addicted to. There are many 12 step groups to attend and work the steps with a sponsor. Even if you do not have a problem, attend an Al Anon group and explore the effects on you of those around you that are addicted.


There is a positive energy revolution happening, and you can be part of that revolution. To find out more, read the following article; Sustainable Energy [R]evolution | Greenpeace International

What Hospitals Won’t Tell You – Vital Strategies that Could Save Your Life

By Dr. Mercola
Dr. Andrew Saul has over 35 years of experience in natural health education, and holds a number of certificates for teaching clinical nutrition.

He’s a recipient of the Citizens for Health Outstanding Health Freedom Activist Award, and was named as one of the seven natural health pioneers byPsychology Today.

Dr. Saul is currently editor-in-chief of TheOrthomolecular Medicine News Service, and has authored over 100 publications and seven books, including Hospitals and Health: Your Orthomolecular Guide to a Shorter Hospital Stayi, which is the topic of this interview.

He is perhaps most prominently known for his appearance in the film Food Matters.


Dr. Saul’s Book Interview; Hospitals and Health

Dr. Saul co-authored Hospitals and Health with Dr. Steve Hickey, and Dr. Abram Hoffer, the famous Canadian psychiatrist who, in 1953, demonstrated that high doses of niacin could cure schizophrenia and other similar mental disorders.

“Dr. Hoffer, in his study of biochemistry… noted that over the years there had been attempts to treat psychiatric illnesses by communities that didn’t have hospitals. One was the Quaker community. And the Quakers, Dr. Hoffer said, found that if they took the mentally ill; put them in a nice house, gave them good food, and gave them compassionate care, they had a 50 percent cure rate,” Dr. Saul says.

“Dr. Hoffer commented that drugs have about 10 percent cure rate. He was thinking that drugs might actually be going in the wrong direction, and hospitals give a lot of drugs… When people go into the hospital, they’re going to have problems… Statistically, there are so many errors in hospitals that the average works out to one error per patient per day at the minimum. If you’re in a hospital for four days, you can expect four medical errors in that time.”

According to the 2011 Health Grades Hospital Quality in America noticed doctors or hospitalStudyii, the incidence rate of medical harm occurring in the United States is estimated to be over 40,000 harmful and/or lethal errors each and EVERY day.

Hospitals have become particularly notorious for spreading lethal infections. In the United States, more than 2 million people are affected by hospital-acquired infections each year, and a whopping 100,000 people die as a result. According to the Health Grades report, analysis of approximately 40 million Medicare patients’ records from 2007 through 2009 showed that 1 in 9 patients developed such hospital-acquired infections! The saddest part is, most of these cases could likely have been easily prevented with better infection control in hospitals—simple things such as doctors and nurses washing their hands between each patient, for example.

Hospitals, home and nursing home care account for over one-third of the $2.6 trillion the United States spends for health care.iii This is TRIPLE what we surrender to drug companies. It wouldn’t be so bad if we actually received major benefits for this investment, but, as Dr. Saul’s book reveals, this oftentimes is not the case…
Hospital Nutrition and Supplements

However, there are solutions; it is possible to make hospitals better, and the book addresses this in depth. Nutrition is a key element. As Dr. Saul points out, hospital food is almost universally associated with bad food. Most of it is highly processed, but you can sometimes get better fare simply by asking for a vegetarian meal. He also explains why it can be helpful to get a simple note from your primary care physician if you take vitamins and want to continue taking them while in the hospital. And, your rights, should the staff insist you can’t take them while staying there.

“If you want to take vitamins in the hospital, go ahead and do it,” Dr. Saul says. “On the other hand, if the hospital, your physician, or surgeon, can explain to you why, for a particular procedure or a particular medication, you cannot take the vitamin, then you can accommodate that request if they are highly specific. Usually what happens is they’ll say,

“You can’t take any vitamins.” But that’s just not true. Everyone should take vitamin C before they go to the hospital. They should take vitamin C before they go to the dentist for less infection, less pain, quicker healing time, and less bleeding. The same is true with surgery. People who take high doses of vitamin C are much less likely to have blood clotting in healing, inflammation, and other complications that, unfortunately, are fairly familiar among surgical staff.

If someone says, “You can’t take vitamin E because we’re going to give you Warfarin (Coumadin),” that’s a reasonable point. But then… there is evidence that if you take the vitamin E, you don’t need Warfarin.

I had a client once who had this exact dilemma. He had thrombophlebitis, and he was on Warfarin. He wanted to take vitamin E instead… He said, “Well, what should I do?” I said, “The best thing to do is to gradually decrease the drug with your doctor’s cooperation while increasing the vitamin – again, with your doctor’s cooperation. Talk to your doctor. The doctor that put you on the drugs should be the one that you’ll talk to about the drugs.”… He said, “I don’t want to talk to the doctor about this.” He actually was afraid to talk to his doctor. He did not want the confrontation. What he did instead was he just started taking the vitamin E. Eventually, his clotting time was extended to the point where the doctor said,

“What’s going on?”

… Too much Warfarin causes extended bleeding. Too much vitamin E can also cause slightly extended bleeding, but not out of the normal range. I said to him… “You got to talk to your doctor. If your doctor’s asking what’s going on, [then] tell him. He’ll take you off the Coumadin.” The fellow talked to the doctor, and the doctor took him off the vitamin E…”

Unfortunately, that’s a typical example of “standard care.” Dr. Saul, on the other hand, believes one of the first things doctors need to do is to make sure each patient has a multivitamin with each meal. The same goes for inmates in prisons, and senior citizens in nursing homes.

“Diets in institutions are terrible,” Dr. Saul says. “We can change that right away. People have to refuse the crap that they put on the plate and demand fresh, whole, unprocessed food. If enough people do that, the hospitals will do it. This is something that we can do. Vitamins, multivitamin supplements we can do…

The next thing that you can do is demand to be addressed by your title. Do not let them call you by your first name. You are a Mr., Ms., Mrs., or a Dr. This is a small point seemingly, but it can actually change your care.

Another thing that people need to do when they go into the hospital, and I got this from a nurse herself, she said, “Bring a guard.

I would never let a family member go into the hospital alone. Make absolutely sure that a friend or family member is with them 24 hours a day.” What does this do? It makes sure that mistakes aren’t made, or if mistakes are made, you’ve got a witness. At the very least, the person is going to have some company. That’s something we can do. Not everybody has an advocate. Not everybody has family members available, but this is still a doable situation. What else can we do about hospitals? We can avoid them…”

Knowing How to Play “the Hospital Game” Can Help Keep You Alive

One of the reasons I am so passionate about sharing the information on this site about healthy eating, exercise, and stress management with you is because it can help keep you OUT of the hospital. But if you do have to go there, you need to know how to play the game.

“Dr. Steve Hickey is an authority on game theory, cybernetics, and all kinds of mathematical stuff…” Dr. Saul says. “Dr. Hickey wrote a chapter in Hospitals and Health specifically on the “hospital game” and how to play it. He… demonstrates that the outcome depends on you… If you just go in… [they] take you to bed and you keep quiet, you’re what Dr. Hoffer calls a “pious patient.”

Pious patients tend to get killed.

… The lowest estimate makes hospitals one of the top 10 causes of deaths in the United States… The highest estimate makes hospital and drugs the number one cause of death in the United States…

We can fix this problem. We can make a change. But the only way it’s going to happen is if you know how to play the game. That’s why Hospitals and Health – I think – will really come in handy. Abraham Hoffer practiced for 55 years. He ran hospitals. He had so much experience, and what does it still boil down to? Common sense – good food, good care, as few drugs as possible, and taking charge of your own health.”
Why Avoiding Elective Procedures During July May Be a Lifesaving Choice

What’s my personal recommendation when it comes to hospital stays? Naturally, my number one suggestion is to avoid hospitals unless it’s an absolute emergency and you need life-saving medical attention. In such cases, it’s worth taking Dr. Saul’s recommendation to bring a personal advocate; a relative or friend who can speak up for you and ensure you’re given proper care if you can’t do so yourself.

If you’re having an elective medical procedure done, remember that this gives you greater leeway and personal choice—use it!

Many believe training hospitals will provide them with the latest and greatest care, but they can actually be more dangerous. As a general rule, avoid elective surgeries and procedures during the month of July because this is when brand new residents begin their training. 


According to a 2010 report in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, lethal medication errors consistently spike by about 10 percent each July, particularly in teaching hospitals, due to the inexperience of new residents.iv Also be cautious of weekends.

“Sometimes, your best bet for a hospital is a relatively small local one,” Dr. Saul advises.
Who has the MOST Power During Your Hospital Stay?

“The most important thing to remember is this: the hospital power structure,” Dr. Saul says. “No matter what hospital you go in… Maybe you’ve got to be in a teaching hospital. Maybe you don’t have a lot of choices. Maybe you are there because of financial issues. Maybe it’s because of geographical issues. Maybe it’s because it was an emergency, and you woke up in the hospital. Maybe you have to be there on a weekend…

The question is, “Are you going to walk out the front door, or be wheeled out the back?”

Now, here’s what people need to do. They need to understand that when they are faced with hospitalization, the most powerful person in the most entire hospital system is the patient.

The system works on the assumption that the patient will not claim that power… You might have set that up with a document. If you have a power of attorney, a living will, or other types of paperwork or someone is responsible, then we know who’s responsible. But let’s say that it’s just an ordinary situation—the patient has the most power.

A patient can say, “No. Do not touch me.” And they can’t. If they do, it’s assault, and you can call the police. Now, they might say, “Well, on your way in, you signed this form.”

You can unsign it. You can revoke your permission. Just because somebody has permission to do one thing, it doesn’t mean that they have the permission to do everything. There’s no such thing as a situation that you cannot reverse. If you can make amendments to the U.S. Constitution, you can change your mind about your own personal healthcare. It concerns your very life. You don’t want to cry wolf for no reason, but the patient has the potential to put a stop to anything; absolutely anything.

If the patient doesn’t know that, if they’re not conscious, or if they just don’t have the moxie to do it, the next most powerful person is the spouse. The spouse has enormous influence and can do almost as much as the patient. If the patient is incapacitated, the spouse can probably do much more than the patient.

If there is no spouse present, the next most powerful people in the system are the children of the patient… You’ll notice that I haven’t mentioned doctors or hospital administrators once. That’s because they don’t have the power. They really don’t. They just want you to think that you do. It is an illusion that they run the place. The answer is – you do. They’re offering you products and services, and they’re trying to get you to accept them without question.

… [W]hen you go to the hospital, bring along a black Sharpie pen, and cross out anything that you don’t like in the contract. Put big giant X’s through entire clauses and pages, and do not sign it. And when they say, “We’re not going to admit you,” you say, “Please put it in writing that you refuse to admit me.” What do you think your lawyers are going to do with that? They have to [admit you]. They absolutely have to…

It’s a game, and you can win it. But you can’t win it if you don’t know the rules. And basically, they don’t tell you the rules. In Hospitals and Health, we do.”

The book, Hospitals and Health is available through any online bookseller, including Amazon, or you can order an autographed copy at www.DoctorYourself.com


Knowing how to prevent disease so you can avoid hospitals in the first place is clearly your best bet. But knowing what to do to make your hospital stay as safe and healing as possible is equally important. For the inside scoop, I highly recommend reading the book.

Sustainable Energy [R]evolution | Greenpeace International


The Sustainable Energy [R]evolution is the practical solution to our energy needs. It offers a sustainable path to quit dirty, dangerous fuels by transitioning to renewable energy and energy efficiency.

Coal, Oil, and Nuclear energy monopolies get 12 times more subsidies than solar and renewable energy companies. A majority of the pollution and carbon emissions are coming from these industries, which cause diseases, deaths, and global warming. 


The UN calls climate change caused by global warming the greatest threat to humanity existing today. 


The largest and most destructive practices on Earth are getting the most ‘free’ money from taxpayers, while the most sustainable, green, clean and safe energy sources are getting the LEAST money from taxpayers, via subsidies. What is wrong with this picture? 


Renewable energy sources are dropping, while the ‘dirty’ fuels are increasing in price. Would it not make more sense to go with clean fuels that are also decentralized and safer, much more resistant to terrorist attacks? 


New investment in solar, wind and renewables is now exceeding nuclear, coal and oil. China is investing huge amounts of money in renewables. Every two hours, China is putting up a huge wind turbine. 


Renewable energy sources can be installed in small villages that are not connected to the grid. 


In Europe in 2009, over 50% of all new energy sources consisted of renewable energy sources. This trend is accelerating. Europe has committed to stopping all nuclear power plants in a few years. 


In one lifetime, HUGE changes can and will happen. Change is the only constant. We have to make change happen. We have to demand that government serve US, not just huge corporations that represent the 1% who care only about profits. It will require that we learn about efficiency, and saving energy via simple easy to use methods. 


We have to fight dirty energy and support CLEAN energy, with new laws like Europe has. Denmark has a large renewable source. Their government made this choice because the CITIZENS demanded it, and the government had no choice but to give it to them. 


We are living at the tipping point. Every person is important. Every person makes a difference. We are each responsible for our actions, our decisions. We can try to move in the right direction, if not for ourselves, then for seven future generations of our children.

Trayvon Martin; Brutal Murder, or Justified Defense of Life?

17 year old Trayvon was wearing a hoodie, carrying some candy, had a soda and was talking on a cellphone with his sister. Somehow, Trayvon used these dangerous ‘weapons’ to viciously attack a MUCH larger, heavily armed, muscular Neighborhood Watch guy, who had just called in to police to report that he was following a ‘suspicious’ character. They told him to stop following this guy. He persisted and confronted Trayvon. 





Witnesses reported hearing calls for help and then shots fired. Trayvons body was found by police. There was no blood, bruising or other damage on the much larger ‘victim’ of a cruel and vicious life threatening ‘attack’ with candy, soda and a cellphone.


This heavily armed Trayvon was supposedly beating this Neighborhood Watch guys head on the concrete sidewalk and bashing in his nose, while talking on his cellphone, drinking soda and eating candy. WOW..

For more details on what happened, the issues involved and actual voice recordings, click on this link.     http://motherjones.com/politics/2012/03/what-happened-trayvon-martin-explained

It seems the The Florida law that allowed this to happen was created by ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council. Have you heard of ALEC yet?

……………………………………………………………….


Last Friday, President Obama reminded the country how personal Trayvon Martin’s death feels to any parent of a Black child. He said, “You know, if I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”[1]

There is no doubt that Trayvon — a 17-year-old boy armed only with Skittles and iced tea — was considered “suspicious” and subsequently killed because of the color of his skin. 


But many on the right — including presidential candidates Rick Santorum[2] and Newt Gingrich[3] — want to avoid acknowledging the clear role that race and stereotypes played in this case. Instead, they’re attacking the President for telling the truth, and they’re trying to push race out of the picture.

We have reached a critical moment. Americans of all walks of life are talking openly and honestly about racial profiling, targeting and the dehumanization of Black boys and men. We can’t stand by while politicians who claim to want to lead all Americans play dumb and deny the racial realities surrounding Trayvon’s death.

Please join me in calling on the Republican National Committee — which leads the party and coordinates the GOP’s election strategy — to withhold its support from any candidate who uses Trayvon Martin’s killing to divide Americans and distort honest conversations about race for political gain. If the RNC refuses, it will send a clear message about the GOP’s willingness to lead on the most critical issues facing all Americans. Click here to take action, and please ask your friends and family to do the same:
http://act.colorofchange.org/sign/trayvon_gop?referring_akid=.281883.ICLthP&source=taf

Trayvon’s death had everything to do with what he looked like. But some conservatives are determined to deny the reality of racial prejudice in America and the mortal threat it poses.

It’s no great surprise that right-wing radio host Rush Limbaugh responded to President Obama’s comments last week by saying, “It is the least important thing, what the kid looks like.”[4] But Americans have reason to expect better from the GOP’s presidential candidates, men who claim to be able to represent all of us.

Rick Santorum accused the President of trying to “drive a wedge in America.”[5] Newt Gingrich lashed out with: “What the president said, in a sense, is disgraceful. It’s not a question of who that young man looked like.”[6]

The Republican National Committee, chaired by Reince Priebus, has the power to rein in cynical, dishonest comments like these. The RNC develops and promotes the Republican political platform and coordinates its fundraising and election strategy.

Please join me in calling on the RNC to withhold its support from any GOP candidate who responds to Trayvon Martin’s killing by sweeping its race-related realities under the rug. If the RNC refuses, it will send a clear message about the party’s willingness to lead on the most critical issues facing Americans. And when you sign, please ask your friends and family to do the same.
