Don't drink the water.
Don't breathe the air.
Don't eat the food.
You drink the water.
You breathe the air.
You eat the food.
Now do you care?
What's in our water?
What's in our air?
What's in our food?
You'll get your share.
We should have been requiring corporate responsibity for the pollutants and toxins they produce and release into our water and air and soils. Now they get limits on their legal liability for the consequences. So sad our country lost its way til all was contaminated...well at least the millionaires and billionaires are happy. Get government out of corporations' control, end corporate personhood, and go Green...and demand profit sharing for all workers and an end to insider elitist ways. Human rights, not corporate welfare, is the first duty of government.”
“We must move urgently to legislatively require totally 100% Green processes & products that leave no toxic chemicals and Persistent Organo-Pollutants that poison the rest of us. Hold these corporate malpractitioneners to account in the courts, communities and elections. There is no way in current law to make corporations fully pay for the damage they're doing. They have limited liability laws to protect the big polluters, not the People and natural world they contaminate for thousands of years other generations are being forgotten in the calculus of greed. End corporate Personhood and end limited liability and end the right to pollute. Your grandchildren will thank you.”
“Fight the Frackers in the courts, in the communities and in the elections. End corporation personhood and end limited liability laws which protect those companies damaging our water supplies, our water tables, our geological structural integrity and our common heritage before they leave the world ruined for future generations.”
“Govs should terminate all mining/drilling licenses and all limited liability legal rights for companies involved in fracking our subterranean and suboceanic regions. All Fracking should STOP Today. Petro corporations: their greed has no means of abatement.”
“IMHO SCOTUS will confirm this is a right all Americans hold unalienably. Many thanks to the Justice Dept.”

“They have said more or less said that fourteen times already since 1888. The United States Supreme Court has stated that marriage is a fundamental right of all individuals. In these cases, the Court has reaffirmed that “freedom of personal choice in matters of marriage” is “one of the liberties protected by the Due Process Clause,” “essential to the orderly pursuit of happiness by free men,” and “sheltered by the Fourteenth Amendment against the State’s unwarranted usurpation, disregard, or disrespect.”
“In America and the world, freely consenting adults have a basic & unalienable human right to love & marry the person of their mutual choice. At long last with this decision by the Feds, the U.S. Constitution 14th Amendment's guarantee of Equal Protection of the Law for all Americans is being applied. Good news I say.. Now let's get on with establishing universal equal human rights everywhere for all men and women. Til all are Free, none are truly free.Or as MLK stated: "Justice delayed is... justice denied".”
“They're building a globalist corporate macro-economy that makes governments their welfare provisioners, rather than the People's First, Foremost, and Always. This kind of 'Public Personage' is selected for their Mediocrity, Cruelty and willingness to collude with the Planet Managers some call the Illuminati, but it's a simple matter of King Money Rules. Let us shut down Oligarchic Corporatocracy and shut down the GOP and start the New People's We the People Party.”
“Now we know the macro managers of our world are often in cahoots in all kinds of criminal activites for political purposes. End the fear mongering of elite corporate media controllers and governance by Oligarchs and Corporate Lobbyists... and tell America the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.”

“What article did you read? If you want to tell America the truth, at least stick to the topic at hand. Instead you spew a collection of cliches.”
“Hey they only made tens of thousands of middle class men and women and families and sick and elderly wait longer and burn more of that fuel the elites say tir corporate pals claim to be improving all the time. All the Time wasted and fuel wasted....oh that'll also make everyone's fuel costs higher and pollution costs to the public health higher. Good job Chris. Now could somebody show these big bullies the door to oblivion and let them get back to blocking their neighbors' driveways when they vote for them liberal democrats. Sadly the days of sticking together are a distant memory replaced by gangsters in nice suits and big corporation elites treating more and more average working class Americans like a class in servitude to a bunch of lawyer Oligarchs. Arrest them all.”
“He & the corporate media had him all dressed up as a hero of the average guy. Now we know he's part of the retributional Repubs who used their offices to pose as good guys while fleecing the little people for the wolves. Isn't anyone amazed yet at the level these guys will go to hurt other Americans? Hmmm I smell mendacity, a strong whiff of riggable freeway controls, Diebold riggable voting machines, and made in China labels saying "Mission Accomplished" and agit prop Faux & Sky Mired-duck International propaganda feeding frenzies. Don't blame America, blame corporate corruption connivances with government insider elites playing us all to maximize our fear, their profits and the corporate state takeover. Christie is damaged goods.”
“Bless you Nelson Mandela. Now let us spread the Rainbow Nation worldwide with equal rights including economic rights to prosperity and universal gay and lesbian and str8 people's equality and women equal to men and everyone safe from corporate exploitation and environmental contamination. If we learn to share this Earth as One People united in peace, we will lift everyone up in love and end tyranny forever.”
“Africa and the world is mourning the passing of this great freedom & justice advocate. Bless you Helen Clark for remembering Nelson Mandela, the man and his legacy. The great tree has fallen, but many leaders today grew bolder for universal human rights, women's equality and empowerment, and his Rainbow Nation includes equality for gay and lesbians too. Love to all in unity today.
"A riot is the language of the unheard" MLK
"Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable" ~JFK
Were JFK & MLK condoning violence? Of course not. They were begging for real justice and equality for their people so that a rainbow nation could emerge. We revere Mandela for enduring as a symbol of moral leadership in the face of oppression. That he wanted equality and brotherhood and love to grow between the races and prosperity and rights to flow to all people only sanctifies his legend.”

“Anybody here seen my old friend Nelson?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He freed a lot of people, but life cannot forever go on.
I just looked around and he was gone.
Like Abraham, Martin, Bobby, and John.”
“If all these denialists are so sure there's no serious science indicating we're in the midst of global accelerated climate change of the anthropogenic kind, tell us then, why these same corporations are buying insurance against just such risk-management outcomes? As long as we're on the subject, how can corporations be gifted human rights and limited liability at the same time?”

“Maybe they have special DNA and can breathe crap.”
“These Tea Party madhatters just get crazier by the day. Homosexuality, bisexuality & samesex pairings occur in all mammalian species and in not one other species is there any harassment. TP worships inequality, iniquity, money (not God) and greed as they abuse of all other creatures on Earth and are abusers of our own children and women and gays and minorities. No other species needs a dime to live. No other species needs a set of ridiculous 'rules' they want to dys-educate the young with so they can conjob every poorly eductaed person to join them in sharing a breakfast of bigotry and a luncheon of lunacy and a dinner of destructiveness.
America should ban all political activity by those getting taxfree status claiming God told them to run our country into the pit while these strumpet trumpeteers of rat droppings run the world for corporations and corrupt billionaires boys clubbers. Truly America and the world are lost in dogmatist trollville and humanity needs to stop their conjob control of our country, our government and pass laws to legally ostracize them and shut down their media corporates and taxfree status of these tricksters. The majority of AIDS cases are among pseudoreligious sexists. The majority of child abuse and violence in the home and bashers of wives are one and the same group of dumb fundamentalists, so I gave them the name 'Talebangelicals' more than a decade ago. The only difference between them and Satan is camouflage.”
“I was re-writing when it posted, so here's what I meant to say: Good on California. NZ is stuck on just about the worst level of alcohol abuse as a 'norm' thanks to the big pockets of the int. alcohol industry lobbies and political leaders telling this place how normal it is while children are born with FAS *foetal alcohol syndrome & the over 40s here are bound towards early dementia and cirrhosis and family violence while emergency rooms get plenty of youth alcohol overdoses regularly. There's lots of anti-cannabis propaganda but not one show of real life inside care facilities for those who are already destroyed by alcoholism. We can't even get med cannabis 20 years after California and most states. It's all controlled here by gangs. We now know alcohol is the most dangerous and deadly drug legally available, easy for kids to get at home.. There's no lethal dose level for cannabis. Let's let adults decide for themselves what to putin their own bodies and let's end the control of drugs by gangs and mafia warlords. Then at least the money from taxes and regulation can go to find solutions for all the mindless damage being done by booze & over-the-counter meds and legal highs such as legal synthetic cannabis here and around the world. If there was any consistency cannabis would be legal and alcohol would be banned. Still I say let adults do with their bodies as they choose with the full risks explained.”
