MEDIA and ELECTION REFORM and THIRD PARTIES!

We need THIRD PARTIES and INDEPENDENTS TO STAND UP and stop straddling the fence between the TWIN POWERS that got us into this mess from the beginning. And we need people to STOP LISTENING TO MAINSTREAM MEDIA as there is very little truth there...and we need the people that are running (that have INTEGRITY, HONESTY and GUTS) to stand up and SAY NO to being paid off. There are no "spoilers" in the political process...not when millions are kept from voting or their votes are disenfranchised by not being counted, or by the candidates who are disenfranchised by not being allowed to debate or get media coverage...VOTE YOUR VALUES and support candidates who are not a part of the TWIN POWER system, the same old, same old, good cop/bad cop, pay to play, lesser of two evils ELECTION SYSTEM that we currently have. SUPPORT AND VOTE for candidates who have values that match your own!!! And by the way, the word "electable" was made up by the media. A candidate is ELECTABLE when you vote for him or her. Not when the mainstream media tells you they are!!! LISTEN PEOPLE...run candidates from your community that uphold your VALUES...it is our only recourse now. Standing on the street corner with a sign is not cutting it anymore. It is too late for that (for most people). People are losing their livelihoods for doing it. We have to think of more constructive ways of changing the status quo. WE NEED ELECTION/MEDIA REFORM and we NEED IT NOW before the next elections cuz by then it will be too late!

FAB TREE HAB


FAB TREE HAB
Local Biota Living Graft Structure
See more at this link:
http://www.archinode.com/bienal.html
Principles:
This home concept is intended to replace the outdated design solutions at Habitat for Humanity. We propose a method to grow homes from native trees. A living structure is grafted into shape with prefabricated Computer Numeric Controlled (CNC) reusable scaffolds. Therefore, we enable dwellings to be fully integrated into an ecological community.

1. Composed with 100% living nutrients.
2. Make effective contributions to the ecosystem.
3. Accountable removal of human impacts.
4. Involve arboreal farming & production.
5. Subsume technology within terrestrial environs.
6. Circulate water & metabolic flows symbiotically.
7. Consider the life cycle, from use to disposal.

Too many events and not enough time...and NUMBERS, let's talk about those!

WOW! Climate Change, Blog Action Day, Powershift, Protest Against the Wartime Economy on O17, Circus McGurkis and so many more. Which of the Green groups and events are real and which ones are just a "green-wash?" Lots of info to disseminate and lots of events. Even more effort is concentrated on finding out which ones are worth attending or participating in. More to come on this...

The issues of the day: Healthcare, UNIVERSAL, NOT FOR PROFIT, SINGLE PAYER. Stop the War, Bring the Troops Home! This would end the mainstream media's economic crisis which is really a WARTIME ECONOMY!

Helping Florida and our citizens, especially returning troops by creating REAL SUSTAINABLE ENERGY since we would have more money to devote to GREEN JOBS for those who need work. Buy and support local, Green Businesses! Go Solar in the Sunshine State! If we have SUSTAINABLE GREEN ENERGY in place, we can then say NO to OFFSHORE OIL DRILLING!

Here is another number from the news I just watched...1 MILLION UNEMPLOYED in Florida. I think this is skewed though...this only includes those collecting unemployment. There are many more that are not eligible. Our true unemployment is probably around 20 to 25%.

Another number...58 million spent in military aid to Israel in 2008 alone. So this was the money spent on the weapons that were used against Gaza. And the weapons were made right here in Florida. This number is important, it should really piss people off, especially knowing that we are paying for this without our permission. The mainstream media will not say a word on this. It is "allowed" to happen.

As yet MORE numbers...Florida is 4rth in foreclosures. ..first states are Nevada, California and Arizona...big retirement states. I am sure that most of the foreclosures are due to catastrophic illness...Special K (Dennis Kucinich) says 62% of foreclosures are due to bankruptcy due to illness, etc. Important numbers when talking about our economic woes here.

No American dream for most...most people cannot even get approved for a home...I tried to get one with a VA loan two years ago and was denied TWICE...with a VA loan, how f*&^ed up is that? So in knowing this, how can this fact guarantee veterans much of the promised benefits and perks when they get home?
