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.

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. The Secret Government is an interlocking network of official functionaries, spies, mercenaries, ex-generals, profiteers and superpatriots, who, for a variety of motives, operate outside the legitimate institutions of government.

Wealth Inequality in America
Published on Nov 20, 2012
Infographics on the distribution of wealth in America, highlighting both the inequality and the difference between our perception of inequality and the actual numbers. The reality is often not what we think it is.
I found this video in a FB post from my Senator. The clear description is perfectly supported by the animated graphics. Together, the dramatic message is powerful and undisputable.
Vermont goes all in by setting up their very own ACA single payer system.
The program will be fully operational by 2017.There will be no more premiums, deductibles, copay’s, hospital bills or anything else aimed at making insurance companies a profit. Further, all hospitals and healthcare providers will now be nonprofit.
This system will provide an instant boost to the Vermont economy. On the one side, you have workers that no longer have to worry about paying medical costs or a monthly premium and are able to use that money for other things. On the other side, you have the burden of paying insurance taken off of the employers side, who will be able to use the saved money to provide a better wage and/or reinvest in their company through updated infrastructure and added jobs. It is a win-win solution.
