It's time we hold our government accountable!

"If we really want to tell the truth in an infallible way;
we've got corporate greed [starting with the gas companies] running a muck,
we don't have enough jobs for or a living wage for fellow citizens,
unavailable health care and child care for MILLIONS,
disgraceful school system,
failing infrastructure
and then you have a political sphere where you can't have a debate or dialog about these issues. And then we've got imperial occupation in Iraq.
That's the makings of a collapse of an empire.

There is a spiritual dimension that's not reducible just to the political because part of our empire has to do with the spiritual malnutrition and moral constipation in our society which is greed, bigotry, indifferent to others (especially those who are suffering) as appose to compassion and a concern about public interest and common good

21% of our precious children are living in poverty in the richest nation in the history of this world....that's a moral disgrace."
