Clamoring For Change - A really great blog covering a range of issues. Mission Statement: “Clamoring for Change is a space that seeks to bring together people who are interested in effecting meaningful societal change regarding important social issues. We hope to help reduce societal polarization and promote civil dialogue by building a community of people with diverse views, opinions, and ideas, who are willing to share, listen, and learn—people who not only want to bring about change but who are also open to experiencing change themselves.


I was first attracted to it when I read an article in the AJC (1/12/18) by the blog’s originator Dr. Guy Nave, a professor of religion at Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. That article pertained to what I have always thought is one of the most interesting moments in American history.


That is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy, and how that legacy has been subverted and ‘cleansed’ by mass media to essentially ignore the last year of his life. On April 4, 1967 he significantly and heroically broadened the scope of his movement from racism, equal opportunity and poverty to include the issues of US militarism and extreme materialism.


On that day he gave his ‘Beyond Vietnam’ speech at Riverside Church in New York City, one of the highlights of which was his statement that the United States is “the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today.” He was assassinated exactly one year later, and 4 days after Lyndon Johnson had announced his intention not to run for re-election. It was clear that Dr. King’s message was beginning to get traction with the political left, and gain the attention of a very large segment of the American people.


The suppliers of the military-industrial complex knew that they were about to lose control.

Stop FBI - For some reason, Obama has empowered the FBI to crack down on legal and peaceful anti-war demonstrators. Patrick Fitzgerald, the guy who got the Bush Admin off the hook in the Plame affair, put pressure on both juries that went after Blago boy after he threatened to quit doing business with BoA is leading the way. This initiative flies in the face of everything we thought Obama stood for and also by the way the Constitution’s First and Fourth Amendments. Stop FBI fights Obama’s aggressive anti-American initiative. Click on their ‘About’ link for a quick synopsis of their reason for coming into being.

After-Shock: New book from Robert Reich outlines how disparity in incomes by 2007 had raised the portion going to the richest 1% to the same level that existed just before the 1929 meltdown. The rest of us were denied the income necessary to purchase the goods that we produced. Worker productivity had been increasing for almost 100 years, but worker take home pay has remained stagnant at 1970 levels. That’s always a recipe for economic decline. One of the Reich’s recommendations: improved Medicare for all - Single Payer.
