Notes from Friends 7–UnSpun

5 02 2008

Finally, someone is questioning the power…of suggestions, particularly in politics. Again, the source is Bill Moyers (darn that Bill Moyers!!!) and the guest, Kathleen Hall Jamieson.

is old news any different than “new-news?”
Je sui desole, you’ll get to click on the link below to get the build up to “Super Tuesday”. Learn how truly minor Super Tuesday really is.

“super tuesday” what does it mean now?

(thank you for paying attention.)

Check out the power of suggestion around the endorsements of Hilary by the Farmworkers Union and of Obama by Caroline and Senator Ted.

So here’s the link:

UnSpun

Question: Might looking at suggestions given to viewers by the recent Media be somewhat worthwhile? If so, why?





Notes from Friends 6–Ron Paul

Ron Paul in Denver. Observe not only the words but the way the words are said. (Not just Ron Paul, anyone)

Question: What can be learned by looking at the man’s actions as he speaks? Of any candidate? Observe the jaw, the gestures. What is he saying here??

Thank you for your comment!

New Celeb-Filled Music Video for Obama
Song from Black Eyed Peas’ will.i.am Inspired by Obama Speech

Feb. 2, 2008

Celebrity-filled music videos have been used to support many social movements, from famine relief for Africa, to support for American farmers, to opposition to apartheid in South Africa.
But rarely have celebrities and musicians banded together to create new music in the heat of a presidential campaign.
The Black Eyed Peas’ frontman, songwriter and producer known as will.i.am, along with director and filmmaker Jesse Dylan, son of another socially active musician, Bob Dylan, released a new song Friday that attempts to do just that.
The music video “Yes We Can” premiered on ABCNewsNow’s “What’s the Buzz” on Friday. It was inspired, will.i.am told ABC’s Alisha Davis, by Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential campaign and in particular by the speech he has gave after the New Hampshire primary.
“It made me reflect on the freedoms I have, going to school where I went to school, and the people that came before Obama like Martin Luther King, presidents like Abraham Lincoln that paved the way for me to be sitting here on ABCNews and making a song from Obama’s speech,” will.i.am said.
“The speech was inspiring about making change in America and I believe what it says and I hope everybody votes,” Dylan said.
The music video includes excerpts from the Obama speech and appearances from a range of celebrities including: Scarlett Johansson, John Legend, Herbie Hancock, Kate Walsh, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Adam Rodriquez, Kelly Hu, Adam Rodriquez, Amber Valetta and Nick Cannon.
When word got out about the song, will.i.am and Dylan said people were eager to participate.
“I’m blown away by how many people wanted to come and be a part of it in a short amount of time. It was all out of love and hope for change and really representing America and looking at the world,” will.i.am said.
Dylan and will.i.am say they did not coordinate the production or release of this video with the Obama campaign and the filmmakers say they don’t even know if Obama is aware of the video.
“We didn’t talk to anybody there… We just came together because it was an inspirational song about change coming out of his speech,” Dylan said.
And what change do will.i.am and Dylan say they hope to see?
“Education, America’s finance, getting our dollar back to where it should be, stopping the war, health and international policies,” they said.

Notes from Friends 1–Red Skelton–Pledge of Allegiance

4 02 2008

I’ve sent this blog out to less people than you can count on the fingers of one hand. It’s been a private blog, a chance for me to work through some of the suggestions from the recent the News Media. Now, these friends are sending their own notes back. So this begins the portion of the Blog, “Notes from Friends.” Why? It’s more fun to post these notes than lose them somewhere on the computer!

Check it out from a friend on the West Coast:

While I know it is difficult to compete with the “Super Bowl” this weekend, here is a reminder to all of us from a comedian (now passed making laughter in heavenly theater) who shared our understanding that laughter is a transform power. Comedian Red Skelton moving explanation of the pledge of allegiance and our Republic. http://patriotfiles.org/Pledge.htm — with his prescient concern for the great ignorance in our country today.

It appears the only candidate who gets the fact that America is a Republic (not a “democracy”) governed by the people for the people, and not by our government, is Barak Obama. Obama brings his vision focused on that and he does not “smile” as a rehearsed face. We see his openness and fundamental vision for and of America is genuinely grounded in this understanding.

The difference between him and the other candidates is Barak keeps referring, and deferring to the people, in all of his speeches. Obama’s vision and message of change is not pertaining to “health plans, etc.” — it is that the people can take back America since they are the sovereign government, not the military, not those elected, and not special interest groups, is real. We can govern individually, and together, ourselves.

The Clintons are part of the Old School which does not subscribe to this, and neither do the Republicans (or the other parties which are actually all horns of the same beast so to speak — parties are not the governing ideology here as some would have us believe). In the last 30 years of Clintons and Bushes things have deteriorated badly in the world, regardless of the “business profits” Americans made during those years. The Clintons only want power, and are not an example of integrity or new vision as their past record and behavior discloses.

This election is important to participate in voting and sharing this understanding of America (that it is a Republic and not a “democracy” as has been distorted). It is my understanding that Barak is part of the new 21st century, not any of the other candidates.

If you agree, please share with others as you and all of us are fighting for America to regain our sovereign freedom as the founding fathers intended (which Red Skelton so touchingly reminds).

(*Bear in mind that an aim of this Blog, “suggestation,” or Sugar Station, is to look at the power of suggestions, whatever they might be. And to check it out for self. Not to be a spoil sport or anything. Besides, it’s also good to get informed on all the different points of view, agree or disagee. Knowledge is valuable.)

This said, it sure is hard to resist that Red Skelton! Eh? He was one of my favorites as a kid. And a fine American. He was part of what I call, “Dad’s America.” Give it another look, http://patriotfiles.org/Pledge.htm
