The American Dream Has Been Hijacked by Capitalists by Johnny Hill Foreword by Walter Davis.



Any form of government can be abusive to its citizens. Some how, the capitalists have convinced democracies around the world that capitalism is NOT abusive. Only communism and socialism are abusive the pound into our heads.

It is not communism or socialism that have shipped our jobs overseas, hoarded money, stolen our houses in foreclosures, destroyed our environment in the name of profit and sent our children off to die in wars ...in the name of profit.

Some how, the people ....who put our society and communities...in the central focus...have become the bad guys (communists, socialists, union members) ...and those who want to profit no matter what happens to our communities..are now...the good guys.

The people who open large corporations...take all the profits out of our communities are the good guys. Look around the country...strip malls...the same old story...same old cancer...7/11, Walmart, McDonalds, Carls Junior, Sallys, Burger King, Coke, Pepsi (with their cancerous caramel flavored drinks), Chevron, Shell, Arco....CEOs that make billions while our kids...or families get paid very little...the dollar does not circulate in our community...it is vacuumed up immediately and our fire departments...police departments...schools suffer from lack of funding.

This is a very good article, that puts this American tragedy into perspective. We are screwed unless we look at history, learn the true meaning of words like communism, socialism (the eastern European forms were not pure...just as our democracy is not pure)...and...we must unite...we must hold our government, and businesses.....and media accountable...and stop playing the public affairs game. 

Read this excellent article by Johnny Hill of Liberal America. Pass it on....savor it...take action.

Consider joining me on a worldwide campaign to counter the disaster public affairs has brought upon us.

Poverty is Not an Accident

Robert Reich ..How to deal with Low Wage Employers


HOW TO DEAL WITH LOW-WAGE EMPLOYERS. I met yesterday with a former executive of a big corporation who had a good idea. Taxpayers spend at least $55 billion a year on benefits (Medicaid, food stamps, etc.) to working people whose employers don’t pay enough to provide them and their families a decent standard of living. So in effect we’re subsidizing these employers – many of which (like Walmart) are large and profitable. His idea was to tax these employers by that amount. It would be easy enough to do since the IRS and the states have the Social Security numbers of all employees who receive these benefits, and can connect them to their employers. Not only would this “lousy-pay” tax be fair to other companies that pay higher wages and don’t get the subsidy. It would also help replenish federal and state budgets. And it would prod these low-paying corporations to raise wages so their employees don’t have to rely on taxpayer-financed benefits. What do you think?

Arts for Peace Project
Theme: Civil Rights

[SDCPJ] Anti-militarist Web site recently updated

This is to let you know that NEW articles and updated content have recently been posted at http://www.comdsd.org/, the Web site of the San Diego-based Committee Opposed to Militarism and the Draft (COMD).
 
The current update includes three articles from the latest issue of COMD's printed newsletter, Draft NOtices:
 
- "Signs of a Coming Push to Further Militarize Schools," by Rick Jahnkow, analyzes the Pentagon's recent warnings of a possible recruiting crisis and the likelihood that it would lead Congress to impose a greater military presence in the public school system.
 
- "Immigration Reform and the Military." Jesus D. Mendez Carbajal reviews recent Obama administration changes in immigration policy and exposes the military-driven agenda behind these decisions. 
 
- "Legal Changes in Military Sexual Assault," by Kathy Gilberd, describes some legal changes that have resulted in increased reporting of sexual assaults in the military, but also cautions that problems remain and require continued pressure on the military.
 
In addition to the above three articles, the current printed version of Draft NOtices celebrates its 35th year of publication and includes articles on the goals of corporate school reform and a community's overwhelming vote against converting their local middle school into a military academy.
 
To order the complete printed version of Draft NOtices, visit the Web site's Draft NOtices page.

Designed Beanies 4 U  | Trying to motivate people to show their unique side. Instead of the cookie cutter look.


My name is Lisa Guerrero the owner and designer of a unique one of a kind, hand crocheted beanies, slouchies, hats, headbands, baby blankets and more. I learned to crochet at the tender age of 8 years old by a family friend. I hurt my back 5 years ago so I've not been able to find employment. While I decided a few years ago I needed to make my own income. So I put what I've learned as a child towards my future and started making crocheted items. Now I don't make the old designs your granny wore but you'll find the up to date looks as well as my new designs. I listen to the client and give you what your looking for a unique look that's all yours.


Don't get caught wearing the same thing everyone else is wearing!!! Be unique, wear your team colors and stand out in the crowd. Match that outfit or toss on a slouchie in the rush of morning. Turn a bad hair day into a "wow" you look good with a headband, loose slouchie with holes, so even if its hot you get air flow and stay cool but look good.


I also have been trying to motivate the musicians to promote your name on a beanie not a big name like Nike. Yes they're great and you're wearing them on your feet, but there not paying you to promote their name.  Get the public to recognize your name as an artist.  I do custom orders as well.

[SDCPJ] Why we need YOU to join the Keystone Pledge of Resistance

Dear Friends,

Over the past few months SanDiego350.org has held 3 Keystone (KXL) Pledge of Resistance trainings to prepare participants for peaceful, dignified civil disobedience. Our goal is to pressure President Obama to live up to his inaugural statement "We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations" by rejecting the Keystone Pipeline and moving forward with a bold climate plan. Over 60 people have been trained so far in San Diego. Our goal is 100. This is part of a national pledge of resistance organized by Credo, Rainforest Action Network, and The Other 98%, which over 75,000 people across the country have signed.

It has been incredibly inspiring to join with a group of people who are deeply committed to climate action. Participants have spoken movingly about their concern for their children, grandchildren, and people around the country and the world who are already seeing significant climate impacts. Time is short for us to avert the worst impacts of climate and we believe it is time for climate activists to get out of their comfort zones and follow in the footsteps of Martin Luther King Jr., Gandhi, Alice Paul, Nelson Mandela and the millions of people who have successfully used nonviolent civil disobedience to advance just causes like civil rights and women's suffrage.

San Diego has been asked to be one of 3 groups that will hold its KXL civil disobedience action shortly after the State Department publishes the final Environmental Impact Report (assuming it echoes the draft EIS in recommending the project move forward). This early action is intended to show the seriousness of the national campaign and its participants around the country. No one knows when the EIS will be released, but it could be at any time now. We have a great leadership team that is working to get our logistics set up to be ready to go when our group is called.

Please take one or more of these three steps TODAY to help make this a successful campaign:

1) RSVP NOW: For our next training, this coming Saturday: January 11, 2014, 9:00am-1:30pm in La Jolla (location sent w/ confirmation)

2) DONATE / PLEDGE NOW: Make a donation to help cover fines (or a pledge to help with bail) for some of our courageous participants who need help with funds   

3) SPREAD THE WORD: To others who may be able to participate or donate via email, social media, etc.

We can't do this without you! Please act today, and feel free to contact us with questions.

On behalf of the many awesome activists working on this project,
