    “We must dissent from the indifference. We must dissent from the apathy. We must dissent from the fear, the hatred and the mistrust. We must dissent from a nation that has buried its head in the sand, waiting in vain for the needs of its poor, its elderly, and its sick to disappear and just blow away. We must dissent from a government that has left its young without jobs, education or hope. We must dissent from the poverty of vision and the absence of moral leadership. We must dissent because America can do better, because America has no choice but to do better.” Thurgood Marshall

    5. Thank you for the link. This is the kind of advocacy I did for many years while

    I was taking care of my disabled daughter. This is where I can make a difference.

      7. Thank you for the much needed advocacy you have already done!

      You can and will make a difference with any further advocacy you wish to provide, many voices are needed in a land where such advocacy remains nothing more than white noise in a room full of nonsense, contrived and or unreported “news”, and distractions of “propaganda of the day” no matter which left/right side such propaganda is loudly echoed.

      The battle is between the .01%, their purchased lapdogs, and the rest of us, referred to as the 99%. There are many more disabled children that still need the wisdom of one that has already been involved in such advocacy. There are also any number of impoverished levels of people from the houseless to the elderly that cannot afford medicine and heat and all points between should you find a way to lend support there as well.

      Welcome back aboard!

    "The NSA’s capability at any time could be turned around on the American people, and no American would have any privacy left, such is the capability to monitor everything. There would be no place to hide."  Frank Church "When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it." - Frederic Bastiat, 1848
