You know as I watched this film it hit me that of all the groups that have suffered discrimination, inequality( race, gender, sexuality, religion) whether it be the Indians, Jews, the blacks, women have suffered the most and the longest, and we are still suffering. Many great women have stood up for us through decades and in this day and time women need to unite and fight together, the inequality and injustice that has been going on for women in developing countries as well as under developed ones. There has been war on women for decades.
Women have been the backbone of the world, we are the yin to the yang, without women humanity would not exist ! Women took care of everything in any time of war when the men fled off in combat, and we are still doing it. We are not second class citizens, we are citizens. We need all our sisters to come together for one another. We let too many distractions, fashion, weight, make up, get in the way of the real issues at hand, we make a stand together and not wait for men to define our worth, we rally together for today and always. We set the standard of beauty, not anyone else.
Humanity is all inclusive and until we start treating everyone equal there will always be injustice and abuse of power. I know what I speak of because I am a woman working in a primarily male dominant field in landscaping. I knew what I was getting into. I brought my skills to the job, I have excelled and yet some men want to make it a gender issue, not I. Some try to push me to the brink and for what, and why? Why is my work measured constantly , or questioned constantly ? I work side by side fellow co workers why is my bar not set, it seems I get questioned, measured however everyone else is set. I am the first female working in the landscaping division for my company so I was hoping to breeze through in this day and age however we still have obstacles. Your gender does not dictate superiority or authority, or inferiority.
I want Wall Street , the banks, real estate brokers, to pay back all the money they stole and are still stealing ! All the bailout money was a sham just putting money in pockets of thieves and mismanaged funds. Why were bonuses and company trips being payed out while companies were going under ? Where is the investigation ? They all need to be prosecuted for insider trading, and manipulating the markets. Our occupy wall street brothers and sisters have been trying to fight for us protesting all over the world and especially in New York. Here is a great article and video on how most citizens are getting screwed on their investments.
The U.S. dollar , Qaddafi wanted to get off the dollar with the denar video just like Saddam Hussein to use euro, and look what happened to them.
2012 Forbes article , Neil Barofsky and his book , there is information all over the internet to look at the disastrous issues facing all of us. You can fact check and discover it all for yourself.
I love to see citizens come together to stand up to their deceitful government. There has been corruption for many years in Brazil and the citizens are tired and they are not going to take it anymore. They made headway during the world cup when the massive stadium was built while their country and citizens have been doing without, their economy, education, housing etc…
We have a huge population of citizens here in America who are not happy, and I hope there comes a time, soon, that we all come together to get, and start the change we want and have deserved for many years here. We the population, the real numbers, dictate what businesses, government agencies, governing bodies thrive and are needed.
Remember our brothers and sisters of Occupy Wall Street, that was a huge message. Wall Street is the key holder, gate keeper of all commodities. Oil companies, banks, etc… control and extort our government, our congress representatives have been for sell for years, its time to stop all of that.

Russell Brand is just simply brilliant. He has his own YouTube channel and does radio, is a comedian, writer, activist,has done movies and voices on several movies, etc… He is someone who seems to have been self reflecting, self examining, himself, and the world around him. He has been improving his ways and always has something worthy to say. One of the biggest things you do in life is self examination and making improvements where you can. He has tried on drugs, fame, and through it all still displays his creative side in all of his work. As a comedian he has said a lot. I love the great comedians, and he is definitely one of them ! He has a new book out, Revolution.
Josh Fox put hydraulic fracturing on the map for us with Gasland 1 & 2. Since 2010, what is our progression on fighting back the big company ? Mr. Fox is currently doing a tour traveling in his state of Pennsylvania and New York doing his lectures on getting off our dependency of fossil fuels and a contest for the public to write in on.
There is a great video on this page of EarthJustice about a couple (Mr. & Mrs. Slotterback) who took the steps to save Rider Park by getting a petition signed by their community, your state, or others states that we all live in, and travel in, could be next ! Here is another great video, Mr. Heatley is a scientist and a member of RDA , putting his credentials into his lectures across the globe. Drilling is happening all over the world, not just in the U.S. !
OPEC is on my mind. The Daily Signal wrote an article back in October 26, 2014 regarding the drop in price of gasoline at the pump. Mr. Steven Moore wrote the article and mentioned our expansion with fracking and horizontal drilling. This process was brought to light to us by Josh Fox when he did his documentaries Gas land. What do the residents in Oklahoma , Texas and North Dakota have to say about this process, there is a lot of drilling going on in those states. Do the residence in those states see a drastic change in the air, their water source ?
Two different men sharing their information with us in very different ways, however they both wanted to share how it would affect us.
Josh Harris saw what the way of the internet would be in the 90’s, the documentary, by Ondi Timoner, We live In Public, was crazy to see how spot on someones understanding, vision of the future of technology was, is. Do you agree with him regarding where the public life will lead us ?
Edward Snowden he spoke out against, blew the whistle on our government spying on Americans, and of countries abroad. He worked for the NSA and saw the enormous data collection, he knew it was not right, they were not scaling back like President Obama had pledged when taking over the oval office, they were increasing access to our privacy ! We are not the terrorists so why are we being watched ? Citizenfour is a documentary made with Mr. Snowden, by Laura Poitras to illuminate and make citizens aware of this secretive, wrong, espionage to be used against us, not the terrorist.
Love Joe Rogan, not only a comedian, a very multi talented individual. He has a podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience its on You Tube, he has been doing it since 2009, so there is a collection of interesting videos with an array of great guests, one in particular “Freeway” Rick Ross . Mr. Ross wrote a book about his life in the drug business and Mr. Gary Webb did investigative research on crack-cocaine in Los Angeles linking Mr. Ross, the CIA and Contras cocaine trafficking in the U.S., and so did Michael Rupert. A movie was made, Kill The Messenger, to tell the story and so was a documentary, Freeway : Crack In The System.
There are 331 gas stations, 138 banks and credit unions , 297 churches , in Pensacola, FL . Why do we have so many in our city ? This is overkill, these businesses thrive, and why is that ? ( besides the fact that we use and frequent them) These three are reasons we are at war, killing each other and in financial distress around the world .

I get to share with my family here and abroad the actual locations, places I lived or went to in Jacksonville, Florida. Riverside was one of my favorite areas of Jacksonville. I lived in several places throughout Riverside. I lived off of Hendricks St. I use to walk the streets in the neighborhood and would frequent St Johns Ave. I ate at Biscottis regularly. At one point I resided off Riviera Parkway apartments on the water on the right hand side. I would eat lunch at the Jacksonville Landing when I worked at the State Employees Credit Union (used to be Government Employees Credit Union). I also lived off Riverside Ave. I lived in Jacksonville from 1990 to 2001. I met some amazing people and friends there. It is a place that holds fond memories in my heart.
Today is Valentines Day and I have a lot of love, not only for my honey bunny, for my family and friends who have demonstrated and been an extension of love.
