...and I Think It's Gonna Rain...



"Loving Annabelle" writer/director Katherine Brooks just posted this video about New Orleans on her myspace blog, and I thought you guys would be interested. It is really touching...



I think the part about the rich man is true, but honestly it isn't JUST his responsibility. It's all of our responsibility. How many of us have given 5% of our worth to the cause?

Just something to think about from both sides of the coin.

Arlan I love you dearly...But education about the rich man is our responsibility also.
1. Over 1 million foreclosures and Tax delinquencies at proportions that are greater than the great depression...
2. Government and Corporations collaboration to extort the maximum $ from a population that is in a spending frenzy (probably to stave off depression) and mass Narcissism leaves us with -.01% savaings at the end of the month...This means at the end of the month the majority of the banking populace is in debt by .01%, This means that we have no savings. Also the worst since the Great Depression.
3.The monthly War Debt rising by 8 Billion a month.This debt is making corporations rich. Thus breaking this countries economic back... We all know that this war is wrong and was started for economic reasons that we see have not benefited us,we thought at least gas prices would stay at $3.00.
4. Our vote has been compromised at the cost of billions for hackable machines....The government posed a sham...Hanging chads , every county in the usa has bought electronic machines with matching funds from the government, Billions of dollars to have a vote that has an accuracy level that can throw elections with no way to really dissent.
5. We are mandated to buy isurance to drive yet there is virtually no regulation of Insurance Companies, So when you wreck your car you can count on unfair settlements as way of life that is reaping insurance companies billions even during huge catastrophes... The State Insurance Boards are generally ex insurance CEO's that have taken any the peoples ability to get fair settlement...
6. Please Watch Spike Lees Documentary about New Orleans and you will understand how The Rich Man is our government and We have been failed..
7. Vote Obama for change and hope...but realize that if change is to come it will be slow and that we must grasp the Democratic Party under good leadership and hold office for longer than 8 years.The 2 term ping pong party has to end..end....
8. Americas great Corpoarations have outsourced our labor.Our jobs are going to cheaper labor nations,,,America in its depression has been being brainwashed to think that the targets of the erosion of our way of life are,,,,A,Gays. Because we want benefits,the struggling non gays see this as a smaller slice of pie....and B, The illegal immigrants are stealing our jobs and services.....
We know this is not true in our hearts just as the German population new they were wrong but they were in the same economic situation we are...The corporations want us to take the burden that is and has been their responsibility... If we cannot get our government to rebuild New Orleans then how can we expect help for an obviously failing economy...We can't. We must demand it and soon... Thank you CJ Bartyzel
