Save a family, sign a petition, play it forward. COALITION FIGHTS FOR A MORATORIUM ON ALL FORECLOSURES WHILE STOPPING FORECLOSURES AND EVICTIONS, ONE AT A TIME
 
Stopping foreclosures and evictions is a great way to get involved. Or just sign a petition, share and play it forward.

"As Americans we have not acknowledged the horrors of war and it seems we never will. We consider ourselves a generous and compassionate nation and in some cases we are, however, those cases are usually the result of some weather-related disaster like a tsunami, hurricane or earthquake. When it comes to war our compassion seems to be limited to our troops and does not include or extend to the innocent loss of life." http://soldiersforthecause.org/2013/03/18/collateral-damage/

The debate over cannabis for the treatment of chronic pain has spilled over into the treatment of PTSD. The author is a very nice women whose mother died of cancer and who subsequently became a marijuana advocate. http://mychronicrelief.com/cannabis-ptsd-treatment/ #ptsd   #ptsdawareness   #veterans  
PTSD treatment is generally considered inadequate by the 7.7M Americans who have it. Medical cannabis is considered to be effective PTSD treatment by many.

#Chomsky: Instead of "Illegal" Threat to #Syria, U.S. Should Back #ChemicalWeapons Ban in All Nations -- http://www.democracynow.org/2013/9/11/chomsky_instead_of_illegal_threat_to

"The Russian plan is a godsend for Obama," Chomsky says. "It saves him from what would look like a very serious defeat. He has not been able to obtain virtually any international support, and it looked as though Congress wasn’t going to support it either, which would leave him completely out on a limb.

Proper use of everyone-loses-their-mind-Joker meme.

The #Istanbul Commune? An update from Taksim -- http://roarmag.org/2013/06/istanbul-commune-taksim-square-protests/

A Turkish activist reports that a “great movement from below” has forced the government to allow a temporary commune to grow in the heart of Istanbul.

Editor’s note: the following update reached us on Tuesday night through the friend of an activist on the ground in Istanbul. Since at least 16 young activists have already been arrested for “inciting participation in the protests” through social media, we are deliberately leaving the author anonymous.

The short update reproduced here powerfully portrays the autonomous zone being created in the heart of Istanbul, eliciting historical parallels with the Paris Commune of 1871 and Revolutionary Barcelona of the 1930s.

Introduction
We are a group of veterans across the country who support the Occupy Wall Street Movement. We believe that the voices of veterans can help convince Americans to join in the support of the 99%. Veterans have been used as a political capital by politicians for thousands of years. In the military one is stripped of their individuality, but somehow that individuality is amplified rather than diminished. True individuality involves doing the right thing, not by dogma or the expectation of being watched, but by having a close link to what is right. It is time to start using that political capital ourselves by raising awareness to the cause as the individuals we have been inadvertently trained to be.
