I hope my friend MC Yogi does a 2012 version of Vote for Hope. Until then this Vote for Hope Video is EXCELLENT! I first heard the song and met MC Yogi at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado. I was there at the invitation of the Convention to premiere “Y Yoga Movie” August 2008. Seems like a lifetime ago. This past week i have felt glimmers of the Obama I loved and supported… Maybe change is back on the table… Time for us to REMEMBER CHANGE & MAKE IT HAPPEN!
Please share your thoughts, comments and feelings here regarding your hopes, dreams and inspirations for change we can believe in! Time to begin the conversation and take advantage of a Guttenburg press moment as an “agent of change” (Eisenstein)
If you haven’t figured out how this scam against the American middle class is being perpetrated, watch this Dylan Ratigan clip. This the real deal of how it is working (or not)… Now what can we do to make it right and get back to the American Dream and wake up from this American Nightmare… Please share your comments, suggestions and stories of how we can change the direction of the river. The aristocracy of Multi-Millionaires and Billionaires controlling our formally free country has got to end. America used to be a country where you could start at the bottom and end up on the top based on hard work, ethical values & moral behavior. This was all based on a level playing field…
With all the corruption and greed at the top; trying to gut our social programs, buy our politicians and do everything but the RIGHT THING this Winston Churchill thought gives me the enthusiasm and strength to fight on… How dare the Congress and elected officials continue to receive paychecks when soldiers and many more hard working people are left hungry, homeless and without hope. My first thought is if the leadership who are owned by the rich shut down OUR government maybe we as a country of hardworking middle class Americans, should SHUT OUR COUNTRY DOWN… Having money means nothing if there is nowhere to spend it…. WE THE PEOPLE could in a Gandhi inspired way bring it all to a peaceful unprofitable halt until sanity returns to OUR government.
“During the Second World War, Winston Churchill’s finance minister said Britain should cut arts funding to support the war effort.
Churchill’s response: ‘Then what are we fighting for?’ “
Please add your personal thoughts and comments on how WE the PEOPLE can squeeze the top until they understand what BEING A HUMAN-BEING & an AMERICAN really means! Time is fleeting and we as a tribe, culture and community need to have THE CONVERSATION with our leadership so they understand the power of 300,000,000 free loving and awesome American. This is a fight we can have and is worth fighting!
Goodnight and Good Luck my fellow Americans,

To the unemployed, sick, disabled and poor:
I’m unemployed over two years now, a 99er without any benefits for three months. I followed Unemployed Friends almost from its start, never posted until now, but am grateful for my time with you all. I did as asked with calls and e-mails, etc. I’ve a confession to make to you all. I’m a criminal.
I’ve obeyed the 10 commandments and all laws except: I’m unemployed and that’s now a crime, I’m poor and that’s a crime, I’m worthless surplus population and that’s a crime, I’m a main street American Citizen born and raised in the USA and that’s now a crime, and I’m euthanizing myself as I write this note — so arrest my corpse. This isn’t a call for help, the deed is done, it’s not what I wanted. Death is my best available option. It’s not just that my bank account is $4, that I’ve not eaten in a week, not because hunger pangs are agonizing (I’m a wimp), not because I live in physical and mental anguish, not because the landlady is banging on the door non-stop and I face eviction, not that Congress and President have sent a strong message they no longer help the unemployed. It’s because I’m a law abiding though worthless, long-term unemployed older man who is surplus population. Had I used my college education to rip people off and steal from the elderly, poor, disabled and main street Americans I would be wearing different shoes now — a petty king. Hard work, honesty, loving kindness, charity and mercy, and becoming unemployed and destitute unable to pay your bills are all considered foolishness and high crimes in America now. Whereas stealing and lying and cheating and being greedy to excess and destroying the fabric of America is rewarded and protected — even making such people petty king and petty queens among us.
