"We have looked for strength and security in military might.
We have attempted to defend ourselves with weapons of war.
We have brought great suffering  and destruction upon ourselves and others.
OUR WAY of dealing with terrorism's takings down a dangerous path of distrust and fear.
It is time to stop. Let us pause. It is time to seek true strength and security.
We cannot escape our interdependence with other people, with other nations in the world.
Let us look deeply and find a path of liberation.
It is possible to look at each other again with eyes of trust, camaraderie and love"

                                 THE EMPORER HAS NO WOES
                                           (There is a better way)

 The enemy today is not Afghanistan, the Taliban, terrorist, or other list

The enemy is poverty, deception, pride and greed.
 Hatred and militarism of those that have too much
and those that are in need.

An eye for an eye leaves both men blind
A helping hand is returned in kind.
There is a better way

Can we not see our arrogance, the puffed up attitude,
The firepower, body-armor, the hot meals we include.
Contrast their sparse existence, making designer clothes.
Do we think about the way they live, do we care about their woes?

 Toiling for millionaires, suffering, dying for pennies a day
Surely there must a better way.

We mourn and condemn the senseless death of OUR children at the hands of ones “demonic” and “deranged”
Yet THEIR children killed by Drones and missile strikes, “collateral damage,”
Don’t we find that strange.?

They that live close to the earth, “Barbaric” I hear you say 
   “Ours is the only way.”
Competing armies line up in a queue,
One by one they fail, another stands at bay.
Surely there must be a better way.

The commander boasts, I can kill at any time, any country
Anyone gets in my way.
Death list in hand like a child’s Christmas wish list,
Asking for a sleigh.
But a life is not a toy, these are human beings we slay.
Surely there must be a better way.

Has arrogance blinded you? Have you gone astray?
But “they want to kill Us” I often hear you say.
Oh, and we not them, pray.
Surely there must be a better way.

Speaking the truth is called aiding the enemy, today.
Those that dare resist incarcerated.
The keys are thrown away.
Held without trial or bail,  
As their memory fades away.

We don’t torture people here, not in the U.S.A.
We ship the off to foreign lands, sequester them away.
Across the border is far enough,
Good old Gitmo Bay.

They dare to go on hunger strike, they think we’ll turn them loose”
Strap ‘em down, stick a tube down their trough, stuff ‘em like a goose.
Our fallen we honor with pomp and ceremony.
Those we fell we piss on with hate and acrimony.

Politics are not about freedom or equality
But who can raise the higher fee.
 for favors and immunity
Civilized or Demoralized?
  There must be a better way.

 “Who is this man” I hear you say, “He speaks tyranny,
 He aides the enemy, don’t let him get away”
No your highness, I don’t aide the enemy,
I want to leave the world a better place.
I wish to serve and aide a loving human race.  

Let us bow our heads and pray
Join our hearts and hands today
And together find a better way
There is a better way

Obama Adviser John Brennan Confirms Targeted Drone Killings Overseas

President Obama’s top counterterrorism adviser has publicly confirmed that the United States has used drones to conduct targeted killings overseas. John Brennan spoke on Monday at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. He detailed and defended the killings.
John Brennan: "President Obama believes that, done carefully, deliberately and responsibly, we can be more transparent and still ensure our nation’s security. So let me say it as simply as I can. Yes, in full accordance with the law and in order to prevent terrorist attacks on the United States and to save American lives, the United States government conducts targeted strikes against specific al-Qaeda terrorists, sometimes using remotely piloted aircraft, often referred to publicly as drones. And I’m here today because President Obama has instructed us to be more open with the American people about these efforts." 

Activist Medea Benjamin Disrupts Brennan Drone Speech

Obama adviser John Brennan’s speech was disrupted by Medea Benjamin of CODEPINK. Over the weekend Benjamin helped organize the International Drone Summit in Washington, D.C.

Medea Benjamin: "How many people are you willing to sacrifice? Why are you lying to the American people and not saying how many innocents have been killed? I speak out on behalf of Tariq Aziz, a 16-year-old in Pakistan, who was killed because he wanted to document the drone strikes. I speak out on behalf of Abdulrahman al-Awlaki, a 16-year-old born in Denver, killed in Yemen, just because his father was someone we don’t like. I speak out on behalf of the Constitution, on behalf of the rule of law. I love the rule of law. I love my country. You are making us less safe by killing so many innocent people."

Eating Skittles While Black

Racial profiling hits an all time high in Sanford Florida or should one say low.

Eating Skittles while Black.
Are the Sanford Police guilty of corruption, misfeasance, malfeasance, incompetence, cover up or plain indifference to the murder of an African-American youth?

Police claim, they can find no contradiction to Zimmerman's self-defence claim. Do they want to, how hard did they look?
Zimmerman carrying a 9mm and outweighing the youth by eighty pounds.
Are the Police so incompetent, they cannot distinguish between the voice of the victim crying for help and his assailant?
where are the experts in this case while a killer walks free?
Why was Zimmerman stalking an innocent youth even after being told by the 911 dispatcher to back off?

Has our system of justice been so corroded that an African American youth innocently walking home, feeling secure, enjoying some candy in a gated community after visiting his father can be stalked by an overzealous, self appointed vigilante, who creates the very scenario he (zimmerman) alleges he was trying to prevent?

In any civilized society, I am sure the Florida Stand Your Ground Law, does not, should not condone the cowardly, racist profiling of an innocent unarmed African American youth,
Stalking him and wantonly taking his life.
Zimmerman, armed was stalking Trayvon, the youth posed no threat to his assailant or the community.

By his own words zimmerman created his own illusion. "This guy looks like he is up to no good or he's on drugs or something (yes, skittles and tea) it's raining he is just walking around looking about" (AND HE IS BLACK) "THESE------- COONS"

If this is not racist profiling, what is?

There is a Destructive culture at work in America, a culture attempting to exonerate the wrongdoer who is shielded under the cloak of some authority.
Be it Military, Police or vigilante, lest it may reflect a flawed system of Justice.
An image to be protected at any cost, the illusion, delusion of infallibility and superiority.

The truth of the matter may be, we are operating under a flawed system of Justice, every time we exonerate the wrongdoer with no regard for justice for the victims.
In so doing our system of Justice becomes a party to the injustice itself.

To be truly effective, a system of Justice must be equitable, lead by example and not engage in divisive rhetoric.

We must not blame the laws but rather the improper implementation, interpretation and enforcement of said laws.
