Too Many Negative Vibes

By jerrybeller / August 10, 2016

There’re too many negative vibes in Americans and humans. How about we take a day in the United States and the world to celebrate what we have because we live today. Only those at the very bottom have the right to be angry. All the other complainers are bellyachers as generations before would say.  FOCUS […]


White People, Black people, Brown People

By jerrybeller / July 30, 2016

Everybody stop using “WHITE PEOPLE” or “BLACK PEOPLE” or “BROWN PEOPLE” unless what you’re talking about pertains to everybody who ever lived in one or the other race. It’s usually bigotry when somebody starts a sentence with “White People” or “Black People.” No race holds a monopoly on character, honesty, strength, courage, humanism, common sense; nor on […]

Facebook Friends – Less is more!

By jerrybeller / January 19, 2016

Most people want ten zillion Facebook friends, but I just want a few real friends. I’ve auditioned over 2,000 Facebook friends the past couple of years but decided it was mostly nonsense.

Too many of these conversations are one-dimensional. Having been a worker and run my […]

Much older today than I once was, these are some of the lessons learned along the journey.

For most of us, the worst case of inequality would be one percent of the world population owning 99 percent of the world’s wealth. It’s also a major focus of my upcoming book. INEQUALITY TREND New studies suggest we’re heading towards the worst-case scenario. One percent of the world’s population will soon own 99 percent of […]

There’s much to learn in the Noam Chomsky interview. He explains to Abby Martin the shift to the right in both political parties.
