Collaborate on a song and video about Peace, Earth, Sustainability or Rights!

The mission right now is to join together over the Internet or in person, but over the net will work fine and make a song encouraging Peace, taking care of Earth, living Sustainable or supporting people’s Rights!

Quick answers to questions you may have…

1) Do I need to be a professional singer, musician, rapper, spoken word artist, writer, poet, video editor, artist, etc?
No, you just need to care and want to speak up and encourage a better way through a song and video.

2) Do I need to have experience in doing this before?
Nope.

3) Does this cost money?
No.

4) Will we make money from this?
No, this will just be shared out. Whoever all is involved will all hold rights to what we do so that all involved have a say in how it’s shared and so forth but this is strictly non commercial.

5) How do we do this?
Lots of different ways can work, we can choose whatever is best for all involved. It could be as simple as let’s say it’s just 2 people, you have a poem and want music to it so you record yourself even if just on your phone’s voice recorder or video and then send to me (more on that later), I make music and see what you think, if it’s good then we get someone to make a video so we can share it out or we make one by ourselves. 
Or if multiple people are involved we can have what people have as ideas or additions on a sharing site I can have set up which will be free for us to use.

6) Does the song have to be fancy and will we worry about it being “perfect”?
No. We’ll be able to make it sound good but the focus isn’t getting an award or making it sound real polished and just like something on the radio.

Basically we just do this, we don’t second guess ourselves. We make something that encourages a better world. That intention and our efforts can help the world and that’s as far as we concern ourselves. This is meant to be fun and help us and help the world, so let’s do this NOW!

I play acoustic and electric guitar, bass, some keys, harmonica, hand drums, drums, can can program in sequences along with having tons of synths and other sounds, so I can cover a fair amount or just a tiny bit, whatever the song calls for and whoever’s involved thinks is best is fine by me. 

Drop me a line through the contact form here and let’s get this roiling, we can do this nice and easy and I can answer any questions you have so contact and let’s do this!

Plus PLEASE SHARE this with anyone who may be interested!

Peace.

 

Health Ins debate is shifting focus. We need Single Payer, NOT ACA or TRUMPCARE!

The media and politicians have everyone worried (and rightly so, health care is very important) but they are doing this to distract from the fact that the vast majority of Americans want Single Payer health insurance.
The raised rates, non coverage for pre-existing conditions etc are caused BY the Insurance Industry. The government doesn’t cause it, the greed of the insurance industry does.

Rate hikes, denial of payment… ALL of those are decisions by insurance companies. They are a middle man that is not needed. Why are we all giving someone money for our care and then letting them keep as much as they want?

Last year the CEO of United Health made $63,000,000 (Sixty Three MILLION dollars) in ONE year.
That’s over $181,000 a day/seven days a week/365 days a year.
How many people sent their money in just so that ONE man could be a multi millionaire?

How many other industry execs are taking home massive pay?
And where does that money come from? It comes from people sending in money for health care. It comes from you.

Administrative costs are always going to be there, but there is no acceptable reason for it being that high. The USA spends more on administration than any other country AND the USA is way down the list on how healthy our population is.

Virtually all advanced countries in the world have various versions of Single Payer universal health care and they are healthier. People being healthier helps everyone INCLUDING business and corporations. They don’t have people calling in sick as often, they don’t have people keeling over from a heart attack that could have been avoided if they’d been able to get preventative maintenance health care.

A high percentage of people in the US have insurance but can’t afford copay, so even if they get to the Dr, if a prescription is written out they can’t afford to get it and take the medicine.
That’s easily avoidable.
Single payer.

So, don’t get worked up and defend the ACA (ObamaCare), get worked up and vocal and DEMAND they implement Single Payer and then get rid of the ACA.
The ACA and Trumpcare and any other scheme based on private insurance is always going to have people getting rich from our money.
Get private insurance out of the loop, Single Payer is the only way that we will ever have a decent health care setup in this country.
Demand Single Payer.

Below is a video where it’s spelled out covering most of the same stuff but adds a bit more but BEWARE there is a bit of ROUGH LANGUAGE so if you have sensitive ears don’t watch it.
I am adding it here because she is right and her tossing out a few 4 letter words is much less offensive to me than people dying due to not having the ability to visit the Dr, afford prescriptions and not being able to live.

.
Please think about this and get vocal for what helps us all, works more efficiently (yes, I know government isn’t the most efficient, but Single Payer would still be better and we can work on making our government better whereas if industry can make money they will NEVER change)
Corporations don’t care about life, they only care about money.

Peace.

Nonviolent civil resistance & opposing repressive or unacceptable policy successfully & peacefully.

If you really want to successfully change this world and shift it towards peace, sustainability, justice and unity, you will need to know what works and what doesn’t.

Luckily the best tactics align with the end goal. There is no need to deviate into behavior that one thinks is wrong in an attempt to rid the world of what one thinks is wrong.

Many ways to address injustice, oppression, a country falling into totalitarianism or many other unacceptable things without resorting to physical force.

Please watch the video, read the article, download and print out the 2 pdfs, check out the Indivisible group and check back for more to be added or contact me with what needs be a part of this for people to learn from and use in our efforts to achieve a better world.
