I fell into a burning ring of fire. But I found this year’s Waterkeeper Alliance conference in Boulder, Colorado, by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. who delivered a provocative unscripted keynote that lambasted the carbon lobby for undermining democracy and subverting the common right to a healthy environment.

This is the best takedown I’ve ever witnessed.

Keith Olbermann delivers a special comment about Hillary Clinton and her recent reference to Robert Kennedy’s assassination and the inference to why she is continuing her campaign. “My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. I don’t understand it.”
She’s Sorry Again
I’m not saying she literally hopes he dies soon. (Plus, she’s apologized, so case closed, right?) But Hillary didn’t mean what she said this time just like she wasn’t exactly shouting out to hardworking white people, and Bill didn’t quite say Jesse equals Barack, and her surrogates never meant to push the whole image of him as a druggie in the ‘hood, and she never meant to reanimate the whole highly racial Jeremiah Wright hoo-ha by saying—gosh darn the timing, just as things were dying down—that he woulda never been her pick for pastor. But either Hillary Clinton is one smart, savvy, and occasionally even on-message politician—in which case she is well aware of what it means to reference the possible assassination of a black leader in this country—or she isn’t and doesn’t. It can’t be both.
No such thing as an accident
I think we know exactly what Hillary meant:
“Nice nominee you got there… sure would be a shame if anything happened to him.”
Awfully big-hearted of her to be willing to stick around through August, just in case….

Widely respected for her grab-’em-by-the-collar advice and tough love, Robbins drills through the mental clutter that stands between people and what they want. Her approach is smart, effective and entertaining.

Bill Haschke recently wrote “History is great at increasing understanding.”
The Wizard of Oz has been a family favorite movie since its beginning in the late 1930’s. It holds all the makings of a classic – good vs evil, fantasy to reality, flawed characters developing new strengths, and a journey into the unknown. Over the years I’ve enjoyed the movie with my family many times.
In a recent FB post there was a YouTube video link to a documentary by Bill Still about the real meanings of the Wizard of Oz. I know of Bill Still from his YouTube reporting videos and think that he’s a serious reporter. If you are concerned about the future of the USA then you need to have a perspective on USA history. I give you; The secret of Oz.
Moyers and Company July 2012. Bill Moyers and Chris Hedges discuss Hedges book ‘Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt’. The interview then segues into Hedges motivation to report as he does on the capitalist destructive connection to greed and why he takes personal front line action against corporations.
Here you have two brilliant people engaged in a discussion that is filled with pearls of wisdom, such as, what is the difference between truth and news.
Presented here for the historical facts that need to be remembered. NPR & Bill Moyers in 1987.
