postponed because of rain

naa, jury duty was just postponed till monday

not because of rain, that just sounded fancy - smile

which is a good thing for me

cuz i have something to say this morn

i was thinking - of the 'and now for something different'

from yesterday

see i saw a timeline they had done, which explained

in lawyers terms (laws and such)

how exactly corps got the power they have today

and that got me thinking about a blog i read last week

lamenting about the loss of what this country was founded on

huh???

founded on???

let's see, from my perspective

this country was founded by rich land owning white men
(they wrote our constitution which didn't include freedoms nor rights
for poor men, men of color or any woman ~ um, those were added on later ~ well kind-of)

who decided to try to annihilate the native people
(because they didn't believe in their god
even though they claim they came here to flee
from religious persecution in their own countries)

i could go on

but you get my drift...

so tell me -- really people -- has anything changed??

maybe what we need is to start over - scrap what we have

and create a~new??

and now for something completely different: Ken Wilber

That's what I keep saying Hon. Scrap it and start over again. But the big question is..... How? You know that 'they' don't want to give up what 'they' have.

the only problem with this is that a requirement for the foundation of a new civilization is.. land. unfortunately, there's none left. the only thing left is imperialism, which we may be seeing the beginning of.

like it or not, america is (was?) probably the last chance for getting things right.

i'm not holding my breath for social revolution.

I don't know. I'm an optimist that believes that a sweeping change in Congress would help put us back on the right path. And I believe in the majority of votors to affect that change at the polls. I think it behooves us all to make a concerted effort to talk up the position with people that don't see how important this change is to the United States.

great post and great questions.

I agree with bbc though. "they" aren't going to relinquish their power. no way, no how.

I think people will look back at this time in America's history and wish they would have did more to stop this administration

Right on azgoddess! I could not have said it any better! Great ideas came across the ocean, but they buried pretty soon after by persecution and slaughter of the natives of this country. And yes, there were no rights for people of color and women in society. And here we are arrived into the 21st century and we are killing thousands in other countries.

We need to scrap the whole thing and start all over, indeed!

You leave such flattering comments.

"the God in me sees and honors the god in you"

There's always a chance to set things right. Convincing the comfortable masses it time for a change is difficult, they always procrastinate, not today, they're too comfortable with things they way they are. We don't like to give up our comfort. They don't want to be let out of their cages, becuase our government is so good in convincing them that the cage is the best place for them.

It is time for a change!
