"We're Not Broke!" Michael Moore in WI (video) & Pluto/Chiron

In may last post I linked to this video of Michael Moore speaking at the rally in Madison, Wisconsin on Saturday, March 5, 2011. Tonight my friend Alex at GOP Astrology sent along the code so I'm placing the video here in a new post where I can handily listen to its inspiring message whenever I want.

Oh, and you're welcomed to listen and watch, too, as you wish or in case you missed it!

Given all the various attacks upon the American people these days, perhaps all those tiresome posts I published here over the last few years about the class warfare duo of Pluto/Chiron weren't so crazy after all.

On December 1999, powerful manipulator Pluto and wounded Chiron conjoined at '12Sag' ("A Flag Turned Into an Eagle That Crows" - politicians have been crowing a lot in Wisconsin of late) = US natal Ascendant. Pluto and Chiron were parallel (similar to a strong conjunction and useful for timing purposes) in mid-August 2004.

And you know how the Moon represents The People and The Public (and Publicity and the mood of the people) in a Mundane Astrology chart?

Well, here is an image of the Inauguration 2001 Horoscope, a relic of the first Oath of Office taken by usurper George W. Bush. In 8th house of Debt, Credit, Shared Resources, Big Business, Banking, Death, and Transformation (W certainly did that), you'll see the Moon snugged (too close for comfort) between...wait for it...the plutocracy duo, Pluto and Chiron.

Such were the excruciating 8 years of the SCOTUS-installed Bush-Cheney regime which had to be, among other things, one of the longest heists in history which met the cameras in 2008 when its rottenness burst open to public view and cold, lonely winds blew through our nation's near-empty Treasury Department.

And the crooks were hiding in plain sight...

Rallies Across America: We Are All Wisconsin (2.26.11)

This pass-along arrived in a MoveOn Newsletter and it sounds like a great idea for American workers to rally this Saturday (Feb 26) in support of those in Wisconsin now on the front lines. Besides, the front lines are arriving soon to a pension or paycheck near you:

50-State Mobilization to Save the American Dream

Calling all students, teachers, union members, workers, patriots, public servants, unemployed folks, progressives, and people of conscience:

In Wisconsin and around our country, the American Dream is under fierce attack. Instead of creating jobs, Republicans are giving tax breaks to corporations and the very rich, and then cutting funding for education, police, emergency response and vital human services. The right to organize is on the chopping block. The American Dream is slipping out of reach for more and more Americans, and we have to fight back.

We call for emergency rallies in front of every statehouse this Saturday at noon to stand in solidarity with the people of Wisconsin. Demand an end to the attacks on workers' rights and public services across the country. Demand investment, to create decent jobs for the millions of people who desperately want to work. And demand that the rich and powerful pay their fair share.

We are all Wisconsin.

We are all Americans.

Add your endorsement and this Saturday we will stand together to save the American Dream.

Clicking below will add your name so you can start spreading the word:

Call for Action.

Thanks for all you do.

–Daniel, Lenore, Joan, Justin, and the rest of the team

P.S. In addition to allies like PCCC, Color of Change, CREDO Action, Democracy for America, Campaign for Community Change, National People's Action, TrueMajority, US Action, Progressive Majority, and Courage Campaign, green jobs visionary Van Jones has joined this call to action as well. His inspiring words from The Huffington Post this morning are worth quoting:

"In the past 24 months, those of us who longed for positive change have gone from hope to heartbreak. But hope is returning to America—at last—thanks largely to the courageous stand of the heroes and heroines of Wisconsin.

Reinvigorated by the idealism and fighting spirit on display right now in America's heartland, the movement for "hope and change" has a rare, second chance. It can renew itself and become again a national force with which to be reckoned.

Over the next hours and days, all who love this country need to do everything possible to spread the "spirit of Madison" to all 50 states. This does not mean we need to occupy 50 state capitol buildings; things elsewhere are not yet that dire. But this weekend, the best of America should rally on the steps of every statehouse in the union."

In defense of the ultra-rich

Given the enormous income gap in America these days between worker and CEO, is it possible to defend the ultra-rich?

Update 11:09 am edt: this link I nabbed from a (Twitter) tweet by Ashton Kutcher detailing the UK's rich class who are suffering as well with few exceptions. Wonder what Mr. al Fayed knew and when did he know it?
