Give Your Money Away Challenge #GYMAC

billionaires“We should do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living.” -R Buckminster Fuller

Government hasn’t worked for the little people since Jimmy Carter, roughly 36 years, and it ain’t going to work in the future for them either – YET – these wealthy so called Liberals and Christians have done little to nothing that helps the poor – they all seem fine with keeping a broken government, course they profit large off of the dream to fix it, their money invested in the stock-market they criticize, but we all know it will never be fixed and they will continue to profit. Is it a lie they tell themselves? Only human after all.

So here’s my challenge to all the upper 20% of liberal left, progressives, democrats – whatever you call yourselves these days – and those who call themselves Good Christians, GIVE YOUR MONEY AWAY CHALLENGE #GYMAC.

Make being greedy rich shameful again (#MGRSA? too many acronyms?). See who can give the most away to as many people as possible who can work to live their dream and not go completely broke. Bypass the wealthy bankers and stockholders, invest directly in real live people.

What the giver will receive: the incalculable adoration of most of the human species. Is that not enough?

Spread Joy and call it an Art Project.

Add conditions to the funds if you like, pay people to work at something they love to do, that will benefit others.  Mentor a student, sponsor a protégé.  Y’all got lawyers/agents to draw up a contracts, right? Be like Christ or Buddha and just GIVE IT AWAY lottery style if you must! You can spread it out, use it as a tax write off, promote yourself as the best human being on the planet. Become a real entrepreneur, a mensch, show the republicans you can do great things for business, the planet AND real people by allowing those who receive the funds to keep their dignity, maybe actually work towards fixing that broken government you’ve been talking about, all at the same time.

Don’t you think it’s time?

Unless, that’s not what you really want? We know keeping the status quo keeps your pockets full. Is that what you’re all about? We wonder…

The Industrial Revolution is Over – Technology has changed everything, it should also change our burdens; so we were told. Time to share the wealth! Move Forward! Onward and Upward as a species. Face it, most of you just got lucky, right time, right place, a little drive.

Regardless of how you got there, Just Do It!  Please, do something good.

Find some hard working people, lost people, desperate people, good people hanging by a thread and reach out, give them a helping hand or a leg up, throw a lottery; luck be a lady, or fund some good idea;  get 10% of the profits if it works and then fund more people.

Honestly, what’s $15k/$20k a year to a multi-millionaire or billionaire?

Promote #basicincome, DO SOMETHING instead of always profiting off our misery.

It’s a win win for you anyway you look at it.

p.s. I don’t mean to be harsh or sarcastic, but people are committing suicide because they see no hope, mostly because of debt; medical, student and otherwise. They no longer have job security, they live in constant fear and anxiety, no way to plan ahead or reach for greater goals. No longer do we see an increase in wages for average people, not even for the cost of living, and the loss of benefits, health care, no holiday pay or vacations wages, even after years of service, why go on? Many people’s greatest hope is winning the lottery that’s what it has come down to – pure luck. It’s understandable to wonder what is the point of going on, or to even bring a child into such a world and it is an even harsher reality when people see crooked bankers bailed out with their labor, and still receiving bonuses, CEOs making 1000 time more than the average worker as their income falls, and of course the endless wars which diminished all of our standard of living, with the shame that the slaughter of innocent people is being done in our name, we have lost our moral compass. If you have the means you really need to start giving back or grant these people final peace and honestly state openly that you are a Malthusian Darwinist – but please do not call yourself a liberal or Christian, that is a horrible trick and a sin to play on another human being.

p.p.s. Someone asked me how do you get on the Random Actors List?
I say click on the links and that will give you a pretty good idea of what makes a random actor, a real mensch. I don’t have a scientific method set up to analyze it, but I figure at least 50% of your time and wealth is probably a good start. I would also say a hand written letter (typed is okay too) or some token of appreciation, from the people you have helped would become priceless works of art. I personally have a story of a token given to me a long time ago, I’ll share that story here .

 

p.p.p.s. YES, YES and YES, I was raised in a hard core FDR, JFK, LBJ, Jimmy Carter Democrat environment, but I’ve seen the democratic party become a corporate owned entity conglomerate starting with the Clintons and now Obama. I saw the DNC work to destroy the Greens and cheat Bernie Sanders. This is not the party of FDR, JFK, LBJ or Jimmy Carter any more, those days have been over for decades, you need to face that fact. The little people no longer have a voice anywhere in government. Both parties are controlled by banks and corporations. The only way to even try and restore it is for wealthy liberals to put up the fund that restores the life and dignity of the little guy, the voiceless, the working people again. Your protests will do little to nothing, they have already put you in cages, tapped the phones of activist organizers, made whistle-blowers criminals. How can you not see this? If the wealthy liberals  do not do this act I’m afraid then we can only assume they are in on the deal, their own personal profits mean more to them than their fellow citizens. Let’s hope they get on the correct side of history.

 

Can’t just bitch any more, you have to build.

Barrett Brown To Be Released!

I, Barrett Brown, Have Returned

hbgary emails

FINALLY!
not-barrett-brown ;)Barrett Brown is an imprisoned US journalist and the founder of Project PM, a crowd-sourced investigation into the cyber-industrial complex. He was described as an unofficial spokesperson for Anonymous before he renounced his ties to the collective in 2011. He’s written two books, in addition to several articles about politics and journalism in the digital age. In 2012, the FBI raided his house, and later that year Barrett was indicted in 12 federal charges relating to the 2011 Stratfor hack. The most controversial charge, linking to the hacked data, was dropped, but in 2015 Brown was still sentenced to 63 months in prison. Reporters Without Borders cited Barrett’s prosecution among its reasons for the United States dropping 14 spots on its press freedom rankings in 2014.

Barrett continues to write a column from jail for The Intercept, for which he has won a National Magazine Award and a New York Press Club journalism award.

On 16 July 2015, the Courage Foundation announced that Barrett is the organization’s fifth beneficiary. Courage relaunched Brown’s site with a new overview of Barrett’s case and Project PM’s work, in addition to compilations of Barrett’s journalism, books, legal documents and media appearances.

In addition to legal and commissary fees, Barrett was ordered to pay $890,250 in fines and restitution as part of his sentence. Barrett urgently needs your support.

Barrett is scheduled for release from prison to a halfway house on 29 November 2016.

How To Change The World Overnight
For the Good.

#1. Close All The Wall Street Banks.
#2. Take All Profits Out Of Weapon Sales.

In short, only Congress should control the money, and declare ALL the wars.

otherwise… prison is the new plantation, debt is the new reservation, war (conflict) is a culture of death.

The Most Hated Man In America – And I Think He’s Great!

Martin Shkreli is the most hated man misunderstood man in America and I think he’s great!

shkreli

“It is a crime for any citizen to sink away from controversy” -Solon

Martin Shkreli, draws a lot of vitriol once people recognize who he is.
When I first heard about this guy and the drug his firm picked up, developed and inflated over 500% my ears perked up and I thought, ‘here we go again, another Alessio Rastani looking to cash in on the misery of others. “Free Market Capitalism” at its worst USA! USA! USA!

However, since this story first made headlines last summer [2015] and as it has unfolded I’ve had a change of heart.

I’m convinced now not only is this man an artist, what he is doing, through his actions, is exposing the dirty underbelly of not only big pharma, but the whole health care industry from big insurance, to hospitals, to medical labs, staff and yes, Congress. We are being “edu-tained.”

It’s amazing how much hate has been thrusted upon one man when it is the whole health care system that is really rotten to the core.

First, let’s take a little step back into the past, for instance the marketing agreements given to big pharma by Congress for R&D, most of which is done at the university level, at tax payer expense. Yes, you Joe Taxpaying Public pay for all the years of research and development, all those meticulous and endless experiments and a good number of clinicals well before any drug is handed over to big pharma.

For example, let’s take one drug in particular, Bristol Myer Squibb’s (BMS) Taxol, this drug; a derivative of the yew tree, was developed at the University of Florida. BMS secured the patent to a drug that works to cure ovarian cancer.

Back in 2000 if a doctor recommended this drug to a woman with ovarian cancer the cost would run $2,300 per treatment, with a minimum of at least 6 treatments (roughly $14k), and after reevaluation perhaps another 6 or more treatments could be required – cancer is unpredictable. If you’re an older woman on a fixed income of say $20k a year, with no insurance, how do you afford that? Simple, you don’t, you suffer from the disease and die.

Was there any outrage by the public over the price of the life saving drug Taxol like there was over Martin Shkreli drug Daraprim? Absolutely none. It wasn’t even reported by the corporate owned media.

Martin Shkreli has done us all a tremendous service – he simply brought to the forefront, as a lone wolf, what big pharma does every day, treat us like fodder, and the ones with the most money, suffer less, live longer and better.

Now, there’s one thing the media hasn’t told us about Martin Shkreli, they didn’t tell anyone that those who need his drug, those who can’t afford the treatments will receive the drug upon request for free, yes, FREE. That he himself will bend over backwards to make sure those who can ill-afford the needed treatment receive what is required. Further, more of the profits from his drugs have gone into developing and producing rare drugs big pharma doesn’t want to bother with because they are rare and cause an undervalue to their profit margins.

The MSM demonizes this man simply for ad-revenue, and all the vilification and years of anger we feel towards big pharma is directed at one individual, when in reality it is the large corporations that are not only stealing our tax payer University R&D dollars, but taking what we give to each other as part of the common good and acting mostly as the middle-man selling it back to us for inflated prices, causing endless suffering and the death of our loved ones.

In a way, we do this to ourselves because we are unaware of their trickery and overwhelmed with just making ends meet. The bottom line is we have the power to understand the process and change it if we want, but it’s not a priority because we can’t seem to take the time. Maybe that will change. Martin’s instillation art, which is his life, is making people think, and trust me, it’s a good thing. Martin is really a natural born, modern teacher. Something we are just beginning to get a grip on.

This is why I want to say thank you to Martin Shkreli for being so brave by bringing this topic forward. I hope he continues running circles around the media holding this concern up high for all to see, at least until people make the connection that it is not one man holding health care hostage, but these large corporations holding us prisoners for their own deep and greedy pockets and our own ignorance.

I ask that he let us forget his charity, at least a little while longer, before his true humanity rises like cream to the top.

Maybe this time the American People will see who the daemons really are – Big Pharma, Big Medical, Big Media and Congress. Now that you know, what will you do?

In these times, buy accident or design, Martin Shkreli is a hero.
