Martin Luther King: the quintessential Capricorn

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

Thieving Bankers

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
