Who is the hell is Lawrence Lessig?

You’re about to find out.lvws

First, go here

Impressed?

Mr. Lessig is actually qualified to run for what we are still calling high office here in the good ol’ US of A, but his real goal is not all the accolades and power that come with the job.

This Is His Goal:
“We Need to Fix Our Democracy: Lawrence Lessig Weighs Presidential Run to Rid Money from Politics”

Are you even more impressed now?

With all of the excitement in the current presidential derby I was caught up in the whole Donald Trump escapade. I wasn’t going to bother voting until Trump stepped in when I thought, “What fun!”

Now, some might take that particular attitude as the words of an irresponsible, flippant, nay nihilistic citizen, but with a dimes worth of difference between the two parties, the banks and corporations holding all the cards and money, we’re not living in a free society, a democracy or even a republic anymore, Trump at least shook things up. C’mon, he admitted paying politicians to do his will, the media should have been all over that statement like white on rice, but the media is owned by guys just like Trump; worse even, who buy and sell politicians for lunch. They aren’t going to talk about the puppet-masters on the corporate owned MSM news channels! Dictatorships never do. Thing is, we know what Trump said is true, we’ve known for a long time it’s all true, yet when one of their own says it out loud we can actually taste it, we can experience the truth behind his words physically, like a punch in the face.

So Freedom: what exactly is that? Here’s someone who can soundly explain the idea of what freedom is supposed to look like.

Oh, and don’t get me started on the Diebold Machines.
Yes, that HBO Documentary is dated, but it’s only gotten worse and computers easier to hack by nefarious underlings and Congress has done absolutely nothing to fix this.

Anyway…  along comes Lawrence; I think some call him Larry; been following and watching this guy for over a decade, anyway he comes up with this idea on how to take our government back.

Now I had already resigned myself in great part to secession. I figured after the next election the banks will own everything including us, it’s the next step in this taking-forever-unfolding-economic-collapse, but I rolled Lessig’s idea around in my nut a bit and I thought, ‘Here is a secret door that could actually be a game changer!’ cause let’s face it, eventually we will have to come to our senses and do the right thing, right?

The Bottom Line: Give it a go, you got nothing to lose, seriously, unless you’re the 1% you have absolutely nothing left to lose and absolutely everything to gain.

Lessig is going to blow your mind, his campaign requires you to think differently about political campaigns – definitely, not what you’re used to, but should be?

Remember: “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

Lessigs approach will put an end to the insanity. The only question is, are you tired of being insane?

Here are some more in-depth links I offer up for your exploration do the research!

I’ll add more as time goes on. So check back for updates.

Donald Trump

Democrats do not inspire me to vote at all – they have screwed progressive left and right for at least the last 20 years.

Bernie Sanders who is supposed to be the beacon of a socialist progressive movement built nothing in his 30 years other than a soapbox which he stood on taking the opportunity to utter some choice, but empty words on the floor of the House and Senate all the while collecting a pretty hefty government paycheck for that privilege – $175k a year, plus benefits and a spectacular pension. 30 years as a progressive socialist democrat and what coalition did he build? Nothing. But, he has stood by the funding of every war and proxy-war under Clinton, Bush and Obama and he stands with Israel on everything even as they slaughtered over 600 innocent children in Gaza last summer. Actually, Bernie’s actions appear to be more pro-Israel than pro-American.

It’s next to impossible for a progressive to even think of voting for the GOP, however, Ron Paul was outside the GOP box, he was anti-war and anti-bank bailout, he gained plenty of points with progressives on the moral high ground. However, when he ran for president in 2012 the MSM and the GOP kept fudging the numbers even though he actually won the early primaries. Further, during the party nomination the GOP changed the rules at the last minute preventing Ron Paul from making a statement, so of course the GOP can’t be trusted.

trumppomWhich brings us to Donald Trump -The Donald- already the GOP is trying to give him a hard time because he’s not beholden to their corporate master and corporate contributors like the rest and the party, and with his rhetoric he’s spilling the beans on all the corruption within the system; both parties, something he admits to being very well versed in and has taken full and whole advantage of.

This in turn makes Trump the anti-candidate’s candidate, which broadens his appeal to a citizenry of those fed-up with the two parties and those refusing to even show up to the polls in 2016. Trump is gathering little r republicans as well as little d democrats and everyone around and in-between.

Along with playing-the-system for decades he’s a tough to like on a number of personal levels. The question is then, do you need to love or like the guy who gets the job done? Do you like everyone at work or everyone in your neighborhood? Trump is not beholden to a party or big business and though there are more than a few topics we wouldn’t see eye-to-eye on I see no other candidate who has the rare opportunity to disrupt this corrupt crony capitalist two party war mongering bank bail outing dictatorship.

Do you?

In some ways the hopeful and hard working American People are taking a gamble, who side is Donald Trump on? Does he really believe what he says about making America great again, or is his run for the Presidency of the United States of America pure ego, legacy leaving, or worse, an elaborate vulture capitalist plot to sell the country off piece by piece in a leveraged buy-out?

Trump uses the word “killer” when it comes to making or cutting a deal, he says that because these people, these corporations, these lobbyist and all these politicians behind the scenes are all killers and that being a practicing killer in finance himself he knows what makes these people tick and how to deal with them.

I know I’m tired of being killed, and I’m thinking maybe it’s time to hire a killer to kill the killers.

So I ask this question, could Donald Trump be America’s Harry Tuttle?

Can you trust him?

Cecil The Lion’s Legacy

stopthisto

I  understand the phenomenon happening now over the death of Cecil the Lion, but I think there’s a better approach to this problem, let’s create a legacy for Cecil by developing a mutual collaboration.

When it seems that war is looming let’s send in the animals and lots of streaming cameras!

The more rare and manageable the species the better.

The more live streaming cameras cast the more people around the world will connect with those on the verge of disaster.

Now it’s clear sending a lion into a village full of children wouldn’t be very practical; quite dangerous really, and putting such a noble creature into a cage in front of a school seems rather cruel and doesn’t really accomplish the empathic goals many of us would wish to achieve. So, how about we send…

Cute Wild Ponies!
OMG! No one would dream of dropping bombs on these little miniatures and what a wonderful wild pet for children to frolic around with.
Little-Pony

Baby elephants!
What a sweety pie! maybe they can be breed to stay small or just given on loan from India. Such a wonderful animal for an older child to care for, very loyal and protective which children living under harsh and war torn conditions need most.
babelet

Rare butterflies…
Endless beauty to admire and look at in the garden the children will be tending, always teaching us to be graceful, gentle and kind.

butter

Alpaca everything!
Not only endless cuteness, they bring with them food and clothing.
happyshee……….too-cute-baby-kid-goat

Peacocks –
Imagine walking down the street and this is one of your wild neighbors?
peacock

and of course lots and lots of cute kittens :)
pretty-kitty

These wonderful animals will protect the innocent people, the children who are being pushed into death and suffering over wars created by some very greedy people which is always for their own profit.

We saw how people were moved by the death of Cecil, the change and woo, all that energy they made in less than 24 hours.

Let’s start with the children of Gaza, Yemen,  Syria where ever there is war, send all the lovely wonderful rare and cute animals to bless and protect them, along with the people who will teach them how to care and love them.

How could something so wonderful be a bad thing?

Let this be Cecil’s Legacy –  don’t let him die in vain.

Convert your outrage over his death to direct action.

Let these powers know you will be heard if one of these animals and the children they surround are harmed.

If you have financial influence, or know a benevolent wealthy benefactors or person who could fund such a project, drop this tiny seed into their brain.  Do it for Cecil.

Marinaleda, a Socialist Utopia in Spain

lightbulb
Title: In Search of Juan Manuel Sánchez Gordillo; a socialists utopia
I’d like to make a daily or bi-weekly Youtube/Vimeo video in search of Juan Manuel Sánchez Gordillo, find out what he did or is doing during this world wide financial crises. I want to get an in-depth view of the village, including; working in the fields, stores, factories and help build the homes. As a commoner, educator and citizen journalist I want to learn first hand how this all works cooperatively. Upon returning I want to then figure out how to create a similar community in the US. I have to raise funds to get myself there and then follow-up in the US to accomplish this legally. If you know the best way to raise these funds or wish to sponsor this project let me know.

Here are some materials about the man and this place, what’s different is I want to document my experiences actually doing the work and living in and with this community.
