We are very near a very important tipping point: The awakening of a large-enough segment of the population to the systemic imposition of a manipulative, exploitative, and tyrannical system based on collusion between nefarious corporatist cartels and the bought off political class (of both parties).

Rejoice; enjoy this beautiful Friday; get your mojo back.  The sentries of freedom and democracy are once again assembling the troops to beat back a familiar threat: Megalomaniacal, avaricious, and fascistic tyrants who driven by unquenchable greed and power lust seem to always find a way to soil every generation by taking advantage of a distracted populace and a weakened, unprincipled and money-grabbing political class.

Once again, Progressives are called to duty, as the only group in society who is always at the ready when the exploitative forces of tyranny raise their disgusting heads.

There is a lot going on below the surface as Progressives and social justice activists get ready for the Spring 2013 offensive.

One very well-organize offensive will take the form of huge massive protests in Washington, D.C., lead by environmentalists and progressive groups.  There are some heavy-hitters involved, including The Sierra Club, and Credo Mobile, among others: Liberals prepare to battle Obama on [Keystone XL] fuel pipeline:

Environmentalists are drawing a line in the tar sands with a series of high-profile demonstrations planned this month in Washington.

The timing of the protests is crucial because sometime before April, Obama will receive the State Department's recommendation on whether to green-light the 1,700-mile Canada-to-Texas pipeline, forcing him to make a decision he delayed during last year's presidential campaign to avoid alienating his liberal base.

Liberals who bided their time through four years of little action from the White House on climate change, and who bit their tongues during the 2012 campaign, expect payback.

[BTW, knowing that we have an imperfect political system, I'm an Obama supporter and voted for him twice.  I just know that in this nation's history, presidents need a little bit of tough love and a little bit of prodding by the people, to do the right thing.]

But that's not all!  There is lot more coming, as multiple progressive groups around the country, including Occupy Wall Street, gear up for the next round of demonstrating once again who's boss in a democracy: THE PEOPLE.

We will not let these very tiny group of human parasites impose their tyranny on society; not here in the good-old USA; not on our watch.  The gig is up!

Yes, we have a lot of work to do; a lot of cleaning up.  We need to re-establish the proper regulatory framework that was taken down down during the last 40 years or so.  We need to regain every single constitutional right that was weakened through corporatist-paid legislation with the help of these very sorry class of politicians on the take.

It will all be done; all of it!  We will first clean this stench of corruption, get back on the right path, and move towards a better future and a more perfect union.

These rent-seekers, this cabal who thus far has been counting on the American people remaining dormant, victims of their propaganda, will soon realize that their scheming, and their lying, and their obfuscation, and their cheap narcissistic greed, and their counting on the protection of the bought-off political class, will turn out to be feeble in the face of a groundswell and uprising of millions and millions of people who have awakened.

So everybody, have a nice Friday, reach out to all the progressive organizations getting ready to move on for the Spring 2013 offensive, and don't forget to support the effort in every way you can, including with time and resources.  This is your democracy; you are responsible for it!

P.S. I'm forming a Think Tank focused on reaching out to all social justice activist and progressive organizations, and Occupy Wall Street, to find ways to come up with collaborative strategies focused on outreach (to the citizenry), and coordinated and highly effective strategies for taking on the corruption that has engulfed our nation, and finding ways to not only defeat these nefarious forces, but to bring them to justice.  I am very, very impressed with the people who have joined the group so far!  If you are interested, contact me at:

He explains the situation very succinctly!  But yes, it can get better, if we all join forces.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
