Words from a quirky bird

And I don't mean this to sound disrespectful, but does it matter? How we got here, I mean. My point is that even if we can see we're not where we thought or are supposed to be, that we know getting there is possible, the question becomes one of how. The why of it hasn't been as evident as it is now in just over a century. As the platform of the 1892 Populist party illustrates in its preamble, we've been here before.

Use the energy of that fear to help as the effort to set proper what has gone awry needs every spirited and sensitive but sensible hand, heart and head available. The PTB has put generations of layered efforts to create this moment in global time. They are as incorrect as every fallen empire would come to know, as economist Michael Hudson rightly employed the term "dumb parasites" when describing the financial services industry during a recent interview with Real News Network's Paul Jay.

Many organizations to get involved with to make a difference in the reclamation process. Pick your peeve of issues and get in the trenches, it's gotta beat the fear of not. For me it's the equal application and enforcement of the rule of law, and media integrity. Check out Common Dreams sidebar of 'America's Progressive Community', it's a little outdated but there's still lots to choose from.

One chirper's little corner
What are words for? To communicate, to sell, to label, to condition. Here I use them in a variety of forms to facilitate a way forward through the PTB's dark and sadistic maze. I am a progressive and the job is bringing that forward to now. I stand proudly by the democratic principle and when the party or the platform that bears its name stand apart from that, I'm obliged to follow suit in standing opposed to it.

Enough about political matters and on to the meo myo bio thing. I reside in the Pacific Northwest, parent of 3, add one if you include the dog and a spouse I stand back to back with when things get tough. I have some education as a journalist, here trying to push what was once a pen and is now a bunch of keys. The skill set in this high tech world is a slow work in progress.

See you in the threads. Sew good things to say as this is a sharp crowd and in more ways than one.
