Nelson Mandela and Political action

May Nelson Mandela rest in peace and my sincere condolences to his Family.
There is no easy way to say goodby to a truly wise Friend and Leader. May South Africans not forget him.

There are many Politically or Religiously motivate aspiring "Leaders" who still believe that Fear, Intimidation and Bullying is the way to move their Cause forward, hopefully the loss of such a Generous spirit will make those who cannot compromise "Pause and think" of what they can really do that will lead to a "Better World" for their followers.

There are Irish and Middle Eastern activists and Politicians who can learn from Nelson Mandela's legacy. I hope they do.

Banking and social justice

Here is a well thought out commentary on the behavior of banks.

Are they really just trying to line the pockets of the management or do they actually contribute to the good functioning of society.

This is an interesting view that is worth listening too.

Good luck America.chris_hedges_at_goldman_sachs_mock_trial

Dear Mr. Putin

Dear Mr. Putin,

How are you going to make Syria comply with your Chemical weapon plan?

Russia and Syria

The proposal by the Russians to take control of and Chemical weapons or material in Syria is good if they can deliver.

A real test of US diplomacy is for President Obama to keep pushing Putin to deliver.

Russia as now put it's own credibility on the line in full view of the world media and the United Nations.

It is a far bigger test of US leadership to see this proposal through to the end in partnership with Putin and the UN than just throwing explosives at Syrian military targets.

Go for it Obama (and Cameron et al)

Good Luck

Syria again

At last there seems to be some action to show proof of Syrian evil action to Russian President Putin and the Chinese leadership.

Clearly this is an essential step toward convincing the Syrian leadership of their need to start caring for the Syrian people rather than kill them.

The rebel movement is not doing anyone any favors either, as they are mostly only looking for their own political needs, not those of the Syrian people.

Keep trying, do not let the arms lobby win the day.

Good luck for all of us.

Syria action

Syria Action. To really be the good guy, Shame the regime by putting the $millions that will be spent bombing, by giving Direct Humanitarian AID to the Syrians that have been deplaced by the war by the action of Both sides. This would not be quite the MAcho action that the Hawks want. But it would actually improve conditions and quality of live for the refgees!!! Go Do it , Obama, Hollande and Cameron.. NOW no UN resolution needed.

Big Business is only about Money..

Big Business is only about Money and the politicians are only about Re-election.

And when the products are damaging to the future of humanity, what can be done?

The President in his second term at least does not have to be quite so concerned about votes, but what will he do (what can he do) when chemicals are damaging the food chain, and the drugs from the pharmaceutical companies are destroying our immune system?

Does he actually have the power to change things? No, the laws are actually made by those who want votes above all else..... so we have no chance.

And the Corporate leaders are putting short term profit before the welfare of society...

Its getting very risky..

Put some pressure on if you know how.

Arm Syrian Rebels

More killings and profit for the Arms industry is the only guaranteed outcome of a change in US policy regarding the Civil war in Syria.
Have to compete with the Russian Arms industry....

Sad.. Sad..
