Pete, Rest in Peace
To My Old Brown Earth - Pete Seeger
TO MY OLD BROWN EARTH To my old brown earth And to my old blue sky I'll now give these last few molecules of "I." And you who sing, And you who stand nearby, I do charge you not to cry. Guard well our human chain, Watch well you keep it strong, As long as sun will shine. And this our home, Keep pure and sweet and green, For now I'm yours And you are also mine. Words and Music by Pete Seeger (1958) (c) 1964 (renewed) by Stormking Music Inc.
Amazing Autistic Girl
Little Girl With Autism Has an Amazing Voice
Emma was born with autism and has spent her entire life being unable to communicate with others… but God blessed her with an amazing voice, allowing her to speak through her amazing voice. You HAVE to listen to her perform the Whitney Houston classic “One Moment in Time.”
Thomas Paine's version of "you didn't build that":
"Separate an individual from society,and give him an island or a continent to possess,and he cannot acquire personal property. He cannot be rich. So inseparably are the means connected with the end,in all cases,that where the former do not exist the latter cannot be obtained. All accumulation, therefore,of personal property,beyond what a man's own hands produce, is derived to him by living in society; and he owes on every principle of justice,of gratitude,and of civilization,a part of that accumulation back again to society from whence the whole came"

In a Democracy Now! exclusive, former Black Panther Party leader Marshall "Eddie" Conway joins us less than 24 hours after his release from nearly 44 years in prison. Supporters describe Conway as one of the country’s longest-held political prisoners.

“I’m frankly sick and tired of the political preachers across this country telling me as a citizen that if I want to be a moral person, I must believe in “A”, “B”, “C”, and “D.” Just who do they think they are? And from where do they presume to claim the right to dictate their moral beliefs to me? And I am even more angry as a legislature who must endure the threats of every religious group who thinks it has some God-granted right to control my every roll call in the Senate. I am warning them today: I will fight them every step of the way if they try to dictate their moral convictions to all Americans in the name of “conservatism.” Barry Goldwater “Wonder what he would think of Santorum, and the Tea party congressmen and congresswomen.” The O’Leary

I Have A Dream Speech
Martin Luther King Speech, August 28, 1963
Diana: 'I have listened and watched video clips of this speech many times. I used to show it to my students and play a recording of the entire speech in January of every school year. We would discuss it afterward and the children were always very moved. It is one of my favorite memories of my entire teaching career.' The O'Leary: 'You know, most cite the phrase about the dream King had, but the entire speech is exquisite. It was probably the greatest that any Americans have ever heard. One must listen to it in its entirety to grasp the eloquence of it, to grasp the genius of the man. It was appropriate that he spoke it under the gaze of Lincoln. Every time I see and hear it, I cry buckets of tears. He was our finest orator, statesman, revolutionary, and national hero. He was, is our Gandhi. No wonder he was murdered.'
