Occupy Kingwood – A Sustainable Form Of The Occupy Movement (2012-06-30)


Occupy Kingwood VIEW SLIDE SHOW DOWNLOAD ALL We’ve completed 28 consecutive weeks of Occupy Kingwood. We are well on our way to complete our 52 consecutive weeks at the corner of Kingwood Drive and West Lake Houston Parkway. We do this every Saturday between 9 AM and 10:30 AM. I am still amazed that neither of our local newspapers papers (Kingwood Observer and The Tribune) has published this long running event. We have been interviewed and videotaped by at least one of their … [Read more...]

It is all about Networking. Can my friend’s service help you?


I met Erin on a flight between Denver and Eugene, Oregon. Of course we discussed what? What is it that I mostly talk about? POLITICs. Anyway we started discussing the new paradigm. Success going forward for those of us in the middle class will be self employment. No longer should you expect fringe benefits or any type of loyalty from corporations. Just as you are a commodity to a corporation, so must a corporation be to you. What am I saying? Ultimately be your own boss. Find a company or companies you can collaborate with and be your own master. With the advent of the Affordable Care Act it will become easier in 2014 because you will no longer be tethered to a corporation for your healthcare. You will no longer fear losing your healthcare if you decided to go solo and innovate. That is what Erin is doing. She told me about the company she was collaborating with. In fact she was on her way back with a few other folk from Oregon from attending a conference. She was already on the ball as she was ready to … [Read more...]

Obama Dancing & Gloating After Supreme Court Upholds Obamacare (Affordable Care Act) ACA


I must admit that I am having fun for now. We finally won one out of the Supreme Court. We lost Citizens United which will have a materially negative effect on the election. We lost 2010 which put the country on a 2 year continual slide from a bunch that has no clue what governing means. Well hell, I will be enjoying this victory and playing for a few days. Then it will be back to work to counter the barrage of lies and misinformation that will be addressed to my American brothers and sisters.Fighting evil never ends.

Where Did I Go Wrong With My Daughter? Cockroaches Beware


I was Skyping with my daughter for about 15 minutes. She was excited with her new exercise program. She believes she can compete with this old fart but this old man is only old in age. Anyway we got off and about half hour later my cellphone rang. This “little” girl of mine was screaming her brains out. “Daaaaaaaadddddddd. Daaaaaaaaaadddd”. My heart is in my throat now because I think something is wrong. She calms down and says: “There is a cockroach by the stereo”. I must admit initially being annoyed because her wailing sounded like she was being attacked. She then said she did not have any RAID and she was scared of a beast that weighs less than an ounce. She then asked if she should spray some Clorax on it. “NO ASHLEY, DON’T YOU KNOW THAT WILL DISCOLOR WHATEVER IT TOUCHES”, “Yes dad, I know but I am not leaving that roach there” . “EVER HEARD OF A SLIPPER ASHLEY?” “Yes but he may fly dad”. “ASHLEY GET A DAMN BROOM AND KILL THE THING. LOOK KID, I AM BUSY AND GOTTA GO”. “So you are gonna be that way eh … [Read more...]

First CNN iReport Debate (Mark Ivy v Egberto Willies–Moderated by Christina Zdanowicz)


This is going to be a contentious political season. The Right will be a bastion of misinformation with the specific goal of having the working middle class vote against one’s own interest. It is a provable fact that Republic policies beginning with their objection to the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is detrimental to most Americans. They have the funds, the control of the mainstream media, and the ability to lie without consequence. Sadly Republicans also have an active and controlled Evangelical base that has dismissed the teachings of Jesus Christ based on their support of Republican policies that are based on Atheist Ayn Rand’s (on religion, on altruism) teachings. The Romney/Ryan budget that Mitt Romney says he will implement, that over time provides draconian cuts in our safety net (Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid) was written by congressman Paul Ryan. Paul Ryan states that he grew up reading her material and states that she inspired him so much that her books are required reading for his … [Read more...]

Obamacare (ACA) Must Be Defended And Promoted Now As First Step To Middle Class Rebirth


The most conservative Supreme Court in history just upheld the health care law as constitutional. This is a victory for American families. It means lower costs, more coverage, and insurance companies can't rip us off anymore. It’s the law. Health care costs are a national crisis. The Court affirmed that our Constitution empowers our elected leaders to create national solutions. They affirmed that the “individual mandate” is a constitutional free rider fee that you don’t pay if you already have health insurance. The Court agreed that the rest of us shouldn’t keep paying for free riders. Right Wing politicians and their corporate funders have wasted taxpayer time and hundreds of millions of dollars attacking the law -- and they’ve vowed to keep doing so. Obamacare protects us against free riders, reins in insurance companies, and it's upheld by the Constitution. It’s time to move forward. Right Wing politicians and their right-wing media allies are trying to brand the Supreme Court's decision upholding … [Read more...]

President Obama Speech – Supreme Court Upholds Affordable Care Act –Obamacare


Transcript: President Barack Obama's Remarks on the Supreme Court's Decision on the Affordable Care Act These remarks were delivered in the East Room of the White House beginning at 12:15 p.m. EDT. The President: Good afternoon. Earlier today, the Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act — the name of the health care reform we passed two years ago. In doing so, they've reaffirmed a fundamental principle that here in America — in the wealthiest nation on Earth – no illness or accident should lead to any family's financial ruin. I know there will be a lot of discussion today about the politics of all this, about who won and who lost. That's how these things tend to be viewed here in Washington. But that discussion completely misses the point. Whatever the politics, today's decision was a victory for people all over this country whose lives will be more secure because of this law and the Supreme Court's decision to uphold it. And because this law has a direct impact on so many … [Read more...]

Affordable Care Act (ACA) Obamacare Is Upheld–Chief Justice Roberts Saves The Supreme Court


Obamacare is law. The Affordable Care Act is law. I predicted passage with a 6 to 3 vote. We got a victory with a 5 to 4 vote. I was surprised that Justice Kennedy dissented. Chief Justice John Roberts saved the Supreme Court from itself. The United States Supreme Court which had decidedly taken a partisan stance, a Right Wing stance, from appointing George Bush as President in 2000 to allowing unlimited money in politics via the Citizens United case was in danger of becoming just an arm of the Republican Party. If the Supreme Court had not upheld this law, millions of Americans would have been in dire straits. In fact many of our brothers and sisters would have in fact died directly from said result. Now that it is law and officially sanctioned by the Supreme Court it is high time that all of the misinformation, lies, and immoral attacks stop. It is the responsibility of all of us to deny the moneyed interest that are driving the misinformation from having further success in maligning the premise of the … [Read more...]
