Yes We Can Grow Up

Bob is totally awesome. Completely and utterly. Awesome.

YES WE CAN — declare our independence from debt bondage.

YES WE CAN — refuse to feed the aristocratic parasites on Wall Street and in the big bank system.

YES WE CAN – create local economies of support to carry us through these bad times.

YES WE CAN — close our ears to the lies of politicians and corporation aristocrats.

YES WE CAN — learn to think for ourselves.

YES WE CAN — end the American Empire and bring our troops and fleets home.

YES WE CAN — turn OFF our televisions and turn ON our brains.

YES WE CAN — work together with our neighbors to build communities of peace, safety, and safety.

And . . .

NO WE CAN’T — do the same things that we have always done and expect something different to happen.

NO WE CAN’T — trust the government to defend our interests.

NO WE CAN’T — keep our money in big banks or on Wall Street and expect financial security and safety.

NO WE CAN’T — keep on polluting the earth and its biosphere as if tomorrow doesn’t matter.

It’s up to us, and our individual decisions.  Think carefully how you spend that next dollar and who you listen to for advice.

"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you are licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what." No idea where that last quote came from, but I like it!
