War & Peace

I do what I can, and invite you to do what you can to create a more peaceful world

This one man band  does it with music…

lyrics

just us

if a tree falls in the woods, and nobodys around
they ask does it make a noise when it hits the ground?
if shots ring out on a desert night, and nobody hears it
does anyone answer for the loss of those spirits?

oh my lord oh my lord

and there aint no one to hear their prayer
there aint no camera filming there
aint no one to hear their calls
there aint nobody listening

there’s no peace now
because there’s no justice
there’s no peace now
because there’s no justice
there’s just us

tides rising, what you gonna do about it?
get canoe for your crew and forget about it
you are not obliged to turn the cheek
and feel free to change the station when the children weep
i’m gonna be sick man, we’re in such a fix man
i got no hope or rope, and i’m knee deep in quicksand
the richer the rich man, the poorer the poor get
nobody cares until its right on your doorstep
who got the time to wear another mans shoes?
who got the time to hear another mans blues?
but you might wanna help see your brother through,
you might need your brother when they’re coming for you

there’s no peace now, because there’s no justice
there’s no peace now, because there’s no justice

*
there’s just us

so tell me, how do you recognize your brother?
same mother, same land, or same color?

well, i guess that’s the way its got to be
could everbody play on the same team?
is that the way its got to be?
could everybody play on the same team?

united we stand, united how we come
we unite the people to the sound of the drum

there’s no peace now, because there’s no justice
there’s no peace now, because there’s no justice

*
there’s just us

BP spill – Excellent!

Excuse me?

Could there really be an excellent  side to this terrible Gulf oil disaster? Believe it or not, I think so. Let me share my view of this oily mess in the Gulf with you in a glass half full sort of way and see if you don’t agree…at least a little.

At this time the whole world can not help but focus on how it’s energy needs are supplied.  The people of the world now have the greatest opportunity we could have ever imagined to make changes for the better.  A pretty large statement, a pretty bold premise, I know.   How can individuals make a difference in how the world operates when multinational corporations and governments seem to be the ones that have so much control over how things go?  Well, remember the  adage  to “Be the change you wish to see in the world”?

Well, what if we change our ideas?

One by one.

What if we (you, the readers) decide there must be a better way to meet our needs for energy generation?  What if we (you, the readers) decide that giving corporations all that ability to affect our world is not such a good idea?  What if we (all of us ) then go on to look for ways that things can be changed around us or by us?

This change of ideas is the easiest change to make.  One that is within the reach of all of us.  It may not impact the world on a global level right away. The effects of these changes may not be visible all at once,  but small incremental changes add up.  Some people may begin to question political leaders,  some people may begin to look at how corporations are set up,  some people may be inspired to invent new energy alternatives.

It is time to begin to understand that the  ideas you have in your head about energy,  governments, and corporations are important. They affect your decisions, and those affect the world.  Beginning to see yourself as a powerful catalyst for change in the world right here and right now by deciding for something better changes not only your world, but the world around you.

Imagine the impact of millions of ideas in millions of heads changing for the better.

It matters what you think.  It does make a difference.

The glass is half full, and the world is waiting.

are “they” afraid of you?

(Photo: Bob and Cory Parks)Media Research Center Truck Advertising in downtown NYC October 1010.  An article from CNSNews.com about this media campaign for truth can be found here.

*****

“We are not afraid to entrust the American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies and competitive values. For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.”
President John F. Kennedy

Contrast that with this quote from Katherine Graham, Washington Post  publisher and member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

“We live in a dirty and dangerous world. There are some things the general public does not need to know, and shouldn’t. I believe democracy flourishes when the government can take legitimate steps to keep its secrets and when the press can decide whether to print what it knows.”
Katherine Graham, editor of the Washington Post

As the billboard trucks and advertisements of the Media Research Center travel through the centers of media power calling for the Truth, I encourage you to ask yourself whether the truth is a good thing for YOU to know, and why.

My answer is a  clear, resounding, YES!  A  government for the people, by the people and of the people, ought to know what the people are doing and what difficulties they are  up against.

Who exactly are “the people?”  Are you one of them?  And who are “they?” Are you one of them? To me,  these are very important questions for all of US to answer clearly.

E Pluribus Unum- out of many, One.

great seal US
