What America means to me

I am a globalist, a One-World-ist. I believe nations and borders are evil and dangerous and deplete the economic well being of people everywhere. Therefore, why does the 4th of July and the spirit behind it mean so much to me? Answer: Because the 4th of July is not about loyalty to a nation. It is about declaring independence from a repressive state or empire and forming “a more perfect union” “of the people, by the people and for the people”. And even though the words in quotes are from later dates, the spirit of equality and inalienable entitlement to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” that was actually invoked on this date, are contained in them. To me, America is much less a place or a nation than an idea and an ideal which is better than who we can sometimes be yet matches who we can be if we at all times strive for self-improvement and for a more perfect union among ourselves. It is an ideal of universality. Jefferson clearly declares “All men…”, including woMEN, not only American born men, and further stresses this universality by declaring that we are all created equal and therefore that to violate that equality is to sin against the Creator Him/Her/Itself.

Further, he declares that that the entitlements to life (which can only be guaranteed by universal health care, availability of antioxidant healthy food and gun rights that are used only responsibly through strict laws and enforcement), liberty (which can only be maintained and affirmed by using it responsibly so as to affirm and protect all others’ liberty no matter who they are or what land they are from) and the pursuit of happiness are inalienable.

I believe America can only fulfill our mission as Americans when we enact into our Constitution these 3 inalienable rights as inviolable law and, further, when we expand our Constitution’s both rules and liberties to all peoples, when everywhere is that ideal land of America, not the America of today but the America envisioned in these founding words so many years ago yet which are so many light years ahead of the really bad attitude with which this country is being governed today.

And the Constitution’s preamble to “form a more perfect union” means to me that each day we all, both collectively and individually, must try harder to advance our lives as well ad the founding spirit of our democracy and let up in making ourselves “more perfect” and better united each day. It is to this that I pledge allegiance.

I am a writer being forced to be a medical transcriptionist in a system that is verged by the fear of many and the immorality of a few to collapse very soon and leave us all, rich or poor, in much bigger trouble.
The teachers in school said the few spoil it for the many but they never taught us how to fix that and look what our world has turned into. They were just talking about the one or two kids who act out and that’s why there was no way they could help us figure out how to stop the kids with 2-digit ages above 20 who have gotten their fingers on the controls of our financial system and are enslaving us into their reign of terror with no effective accounting or oversight.

i am very young

As long as I’m alive, I will stay young. Whether it’s nurturing the next generation, fighting for equal justice for all or awakening people to the beauty of their lives, I will be totally vibrant and alive. What I was too scared, too sick and too overwhelmed to do for too long, I will be doing 3-fold for a very long time ahead. I dare all you 20-year, 30-year olds, to try to keep up with me.

Weakness

Weakness is by no means a lack of strength. Weakness is the strength of evil over good. It is the lack of a resolute will to use one’s brain and whatever means one has to build a strong defense again evil. I know this because it was not strong people who gave me my cold infection. It was people with weak immune systems, unable to ward it off, who caused me to pick up their bacteria. Among strong people, I would have been strong. Likewise, it was many weak people who fell for Donald Trump’s deception and enabled him to beat Hillary Clinton. He didn’t win on strength. He won on the of strength in the minds of many people who are weak.

How Politics Became Obscene

MARC GINSBURG’S DAILY VIRAL POLITICAL VIDEO

March 27, 2016

 

What makes politics obscene―and everybody knows―or most everybody knows it is obscene―is that the Republicans have, over these past several decades, successfully demonized responsibility and taking responsibility as tyranny or dictatorship while lauding and touting the licentious freedom to use your economic power‒if you’re lucky to have it‒to dominate, squeeze out, starve and impoverish―to basically subjugate others using your obscene and licentious economic power in what amounts to slavery―as the real freedom to be desired―calling anyone who uses the power of the government of the United States of America that our founders gave us in 1789 to interfere with and stop that enslavement a tyrant or a dictator. When democratically elected government has been framed and objectified as the problem, the enemy to be taken down―as has definitely been the case since Ronald Reagan first did so in 1980―we are certainly in big trouble and in big danger. The enemy we won our independence from―tyranny―has now infiltrated our very system and deceived enough Americans into thinking it to be good, wonderful and desirous and to think that real democracy and protection from these very evil people as being communism, in order to enable them to continue strangling most of us economically under the legality of political freedom, the very freedom that puts us all in grave danger and which ends up having the same effect as the political tryanny of tyrants and dictators.

DNC CHAIRMAN

FADE IN:
INT – INSIDE A THEATER WASHINGTON, D.C. NIGHT
CAPTION: JANUARY 2006, WASHINGTON, D.C.

PEOPLE are watching a play, Shakespeare’s Hamlet. The
lighting is low with the light coming somewhere from the
side, slightly towards the back. The VOICES of the ACTORS
can be heard in the background.

FIRST CLOWN ACTOR (o.s.)
(from distance)
…argal, he that is not guilty of
his own death shortens not his own
life.

MIKE GREENBAUM, an early 40s looking slightly slim, youthful
but serious looking professional, and his date, ALICE, a
younger attractive, thin, blond, are there.

SECOND CLOWN ACTOR (o.s.)
(from distance)
But is this law?

MIKE and ALICE both are dressed in professional attire,
MIKE’S clothes looking more disheveled, hers with a lot more
care plus sense of wanting to look nice for the date.

FIRST CLOWN ACTOR (o.s.)
(from distance)
Ay, marry, is’t; crowner’s quest
law.

MIKE starts looking more and more disoriented. He turns to
ALICE and whispers.

MIKE
Do you have any candy?

ALICE looks a mixture of annoyed and concerned and whispers
back.

ALICE
You forgot again?
(She searches her clothes and bag.)
I’ve got gum.

MIKE
Sugarless?

ALICE
Yeah…I’m sorry.

MIKE
You don’t need to diet.

ALICE
(smiling shyly)
Can you make it to the snack bar
without passing out of insulin
shock?

FIRST CLOWN ACTOR (o.s.)
(from distance)
…and the more pity that great
folk should have countenance in
this world to drown or hang
themselves..

Mike quickly gets up and moves uncomfortably through the
aisle, saying “excuse me” several times to people as he
brushes by them.flag-over-capitol-story

Introverts and Extraverts #4

My goal in my political movies is to turn the introverted expression of moderate progressive politics into an extraverted expression so loud that extraverts cannot help but notice, the way Randi Rhodes created a radio talk show of the nature of the typical extraverted right wing shows of that type that abound in people’s ears.
