I blog on Blue Oregon

kind of site. You can burn a lot of time there if your mind twists in a certain direction.
Last night a reponse to one of my posts lit up a bulb for me. Or re-lit it, really. It reminded me that the conflict that makes politics and progress so hard really isn't about Republican v… Continue

Oregon's trying to pull itself part way out of its big financial hole with Ballot Measures 66 and 67, which marginally increase taxes on wealthy individuals and corporations. As I write we're about 24 hours away from knowing whether or not Oregonians will buy in.
So many feelings and issues have been stirred by this campaign. One of them -- deep anger and resentment at banks, credit card companies and Wall Street -- has… Continue

Taking a break from intense, earnest attempts to ask the Big Questions, this post is just about a good idea. A simple idea. Most good ones are.
Tired as they are of the word "sustainability," people I know wants to move towards it. How, though? With obstacles so big, with a starting point than can be so discouraging, how do we actually build a sustainable world?

Here in Ashland, Oregon, in the State of Jefferson, we WILL do what Lincoln was assassinated for attempting to do,
We will create a debt free independently printed currency, that those in our container of conciousness decide and choose to accept and exchange as a tool representing value, based on our SOUL TOIL, LABOR or creative contribution. Reducing all inflation and creating a real value for real soul toil and creative endeavor for… Continue

Simply stop/abstain from paying your mortgage or rent.
Sound Crazy, not as crazy as the idea that we have to "pay" to be alive, especially with money that was/is created out of thin air. In fact, some courts have ruled in your favor. There has already been a precedent:

Martin Luther King didn’t change the world, unfortunately, but he changed what he could. His vision, passion, determination, and of course, his dream, fueled him to accomplish his goals with the kind of courage and resilience that makes history. Very Capricorn.
There’s very little myself or anyone else could say about Dr. King at this point that would be new; he said it all, right up to the end when with his dying breath he told his friend, "Ben, make sure you play "Take My Hand,… Continue

Did you know that 30 years ago few people had even heard of osteoporosis? In the early 1980s the pharmaceutical industry launched a massive campaign to promote awareness of what was a very rare disease characterized by brittle and fragile bones. Suddenly, there erupted a lot of fear among people. Doctors—also buying into the propaganda—felt inclined to identify and treat patients for the disease.

How does an average citizen deal with the constant position of being stolen from by the banks, that the banks continually put us in?
They are there looking at us, the average citizen as a means to steal money which they did not work for or do any
creative/productive or added value endeavor.
This is most clear in the "fee" system which allows them to steal hundreds upon hundreds of millions of dollars, if not
billions of dollars from people, you and… Continue
