Why does a billionaire space race have Branson and Bezos competing on spending millions on being first in outer space?

And why call it historic? This is not the first time billionaires burned through gobs of money and resources to accomplish something a monkey did 72 years ago. Wake up and face reality, folks.

What's Your Story?

Storytelling has the power to bend the arc toward justice. But the work of exposing injustices and bringing forgotten history to life can be long and grueling and deserves to be told.

Discriminated and abused individuals hold some of the most compelling stories imaginable yet they've been systematically silenced. But their humanity, while denied, cannot be erased.  

While many of the names and stories are still unknown, they live on in their minds and this platform can allow anyone to make it history for all to learn from.

Community Organizers

We need Community organizing - Folks sharing common problems with a group that acts to solve their shared self-interest.

Supporters of Democracy have found themselves in a difficult situation. Until they can distinguish between what’s true and what’s false, then the marketplace of truths won’t work and our democracy may perish.

Organized Power

The White House has banned burgers. Covid vaccines have implanted microchips.

Women Are Best

Everyone knows by now that women are smarter, and much better leaders, caretakers, bosses, children, parents, and colleagues.

The Democrats vs The GOP

Submitted by ub on Thu, 04/08/2021 - 08:26

The United States of America is showing its dark and ugly visage which may be a reason for serious concern in the near future.

Some would say that over the last four years of the Grand Old Party was full of lies, empty promises, hot air, tax breaks for the one percent and The Wall.

Be Loyal To Local News

The Northeast News in Kansas City sent a powerful message by running a blank front page and asking readers to consider a future without a local news source. 

The message was loud and clearly sent that Democracy not only dies in darkness but also if local news is allowed to diminish.

❤️ LOVE 💗

Submitted by ub on Sun, 03/21/2021 - 08:23

Before we can love anyone else, we must first learn to love ourselves and try to be the best human being we can possibly be.

It happens to be the most powerful emotion. Love also occurs when you get that feeling from someone else. The butterflies in your stomach, knowing that someone else cares for you almost as much as you do.

One of the most common issues in relationships is the communication barrier. Everyone experiences love differently, and it’s easy to miss the mark when it comes to showing that you care.

Living For Democracy?

Last night, I was channel surfing and stopped to watch #MSNBC’s @Lawrence on cable TV. O’Donnell, whom I had met years earlier when Lawrence was a guest on The McLaughlin Group program I was co-producing. On last night's show  Lawrence was interviewing Aaron Sorkin and Sasha Baron Cohen about their award-winning film. 

Happy Someday

Someday humanity will learn that our lives are precious and we must look out for one another and learn how to preserve the earth.

Forget about all the lars spreading conspiracy theories and focus on a shared goal of a harmonious existence with the earth that we must share, all of us must take environmental safety and quality as a top priority in all aspects of our business while pursuing a sustainable planet before humans ruin it for future generations for the sake of increasing individual wealth as a result of a senseless power grab.
