In the late 50’s my Grandpa Edelman said to me. “The difference between China and the U. S. is that in China, you are either dirt poor or filthy rich, there is no middle class. In America, we have a middle class doing fairly well. A man can make a living with the wife not having to work outside the home.” Now, China has 500 million citizens in their middle class. That is really great for China. It is time to change the 1% owning more than 99%. That is a disgrace and we are not going to allow that greed to continue. When you are no longer buying their products, that serves to drive a stake into the hearts of the rulers. That is called, purchasing power.
Today, we remember Howard Zinn, who left us 5 years ago.
“To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness.
What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places—and there are so many—where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.
And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.”

Terry Cook No, we will not wait for some grand Utopian future. Nor will consider a marvelous victory, till all prisoners of our War on Drugs are released with a metal and a check for being saviors of the seed. OH BOY, I’ve GOT the nerve, and I’ve got the ONLY plan!!! The question to you my Brothers & Sisters is, do you have the courage to bring the 1% down from it’s rule? For the first time in our history of living in a modern day dark age, we have the ability to win our WAR to Survive as a Nation and of humanity on this planet. Wall Street and the Bankers will never get 1 cent of a bailout again in the future. I’ll tell you why. We are transforming from being a society being dependent for most of our needs, to a far more positive, for the common man, direction. We’ll call our new way of living, “The alternative to banks, insurance companies, wall street, and fossil fuel by becoming, The Self Sufficient Revolution.” It is not that hard to run any company out of business, especially if those associations are made up of greedy guts, like WALMART, Boeing, and General Electric. As long as the powerful rulers have us believe it’s their way or the highway, they call the shots.
We need 200 million voters to send the message to the wealthy controllers, we have alternatives and so do you. Elect Bernie Sanders our next President will made it easy to keep the banks, insurance empires, investing firms from practicing their greedy ways. The fossil fuel Kingdom has a very good option coming their way. That option is to keep all employees at their desks, doing the same job, with their ingredient to produce their products, cease to be fossil oil. Replaced with hemp, a non poison material that has no limit to it’s potential and supply. So stop wasting your money, being against us in our current War to Survive, the trashing our planet has endured so far. Investors will continue to pull out of your stocks to go green. Your only solution is to join the rest of us having our future #1 priority be our Earth’s Health. 80% of the average American’s paycheck goes to energy of some kind. That is the King of Shake Downs folks, followed by the 4 previous (all connected) mentioned institutions.
Our new direction is thetopcatplan.com bringing to all fifty states, the hemp industry, hydrogen, and self-sufficient economy. The bankers and wall street have their power over the common man as long as the average person is convinced they are the rulers. We are taking our country back to what our founding fathers intended it to be. End the Drug WAR, free our people from living with tyranny over the mind of man. Use our Armed Forces to defend OUR country, We don’t need one more drop of fossil oil, the answer my friend, is blowing in the wind. Top Cat II
