I'm still smarting after the turn down I got when the Maine Army National Guard wouldn't allow me into the Arctic ice melting jamboree they had in Bangor earlier this week.  Mr. Big was gathering to say their devious blessings over "new gifts" from the very Earth they so despise.

I've often wondered if Mr. Big was from another galaxy and just landed here by accident, or had intentionally come here to mine the hell out of us.  We are all the worker bees.

But things got out-of-hand and now there are too many of us and the oli-i-garchy is trying to thin the herd.  Wars, plagues, famines ... they don't care.  Mr. Big has other fish to fry.

Extraction and mega industrial development - exploiting every damn speck of ground for whatever they can get out of it.  The people are left in the back wash.

Human liberation and ecological kinship are our goals.  Our best hope for survival is with the indigenous wisdom that understands how to live on the Earth.  The people of the north have always walked faithfully in their frozen world - only taking what was needed to survive.  A balance in nature.

Now Mr. Big is eager to grab the oil and natural gas under the shrinking Arctic ice and everything changes.  Imagine the oil spills, the military bases, and the warships competing for control.  You know how this works....

Those warships are getting more and more expensive as Obama rewards his oligarchic sponsors, the Crown family in Chicago, that hold majority stock in warship builder General Dynamics corporation.

All these things comeback to a core, a center.  The program of Mr. Big is to control everyone and everything on the planet.  The wedding of capital and government.

Our program is harmony.

Mr. Big ain't interested in harmony.
