As ever buy a book, book a show… You can scroll down to my power to the people-John Lennon Memorial Friday the 13th Giant Quarter-Ring Sidewalk Street Show blog if you are ready to join the love army. Well are you?
Go Back We’re Going the Wrong Way
Arizona’s striking teachers had to explain the facts of life to the states conservative politicians. The tyranny of only cutting taxes and never raising them ever-ever-ever is capute. It turns out the cost to our future, the loss of not investing in our youngsters might save money in the present but will bankrupt our nation’s future.
A productive well educated future worker is far more valuable than another round of tax cuts that end up in the pockets of a golf playing Cadillac driving-private equity-carried interest deduction gluttonous-capitalist who is well past the most productive years in their now much shorter less influential lives.
Making Change Makes People Happy
That my card carrying teacher union sympathizing brothers and sisters is but a first shot with a water pistol across the bow of a scorched earth winner take all now collapsing conservative all wet revolution.
I’ll take only one more moment to do a tap dancing victory lap on the forehead of the foul mouthed former disgraced adulterous Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. His intemperate trolling rhetoric has infected our constitutional form of government until now. Now is the moment when his kind are rounded up and sent in one miserable pile of venomous pythons to insult one another on a cruise ship of no return. Goodbye.
More and More of Us, Less and Less of Them
Now that we are getting back to basics. Now that we are beginning to understand we need to do a few things right. You know we need schools and teachers. We need health care. We need a social security system. We need to focus on clean air and water. We need to fix our energy system and do something about the climate.
Seems so simple doesn’t it? Getting the basic things right means we will have the time and energy to handle the more complicated things. Keep the faith. Helping our teachers so they can help our children is simply doing something besides helping the high and financially mighty.
Let’s go peeps…
