Cavana Faithwalker's insight:
Another type of boycott is label reading. One becomes empowered by knowing what is in a product. One makes a decision about what to do. You can gradually ween yourself off of deadly super duper sucrose and other artificial sweetners and deadly sugar derivatives. Some won't have to ween and will be able to drop products like the bad habits they are.
In order to do the boycott effectively I will have to take a list with me when I go shopping... Guess I'll get it lamenated.
A poet will face life in prison in Qatar after penning verses that state officials deemed insulting to the nation's emir and an incitement to topple the government, his attorney told news agencies Thursday. ...
People flock to Mumbai and are mislead by "weeping Jesus." So often religion is at odds with truth and physical evidence. Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you. Of course it doesn't mean just widows and orphans but at the time and in the place this was written these two groups held the most helpless of society; I doubt that it is much different in 2013.
All organizations be they churches, temples, mosques, social service agencies or governments are oganizations that work against the good of human kind out of human and organizational nature. The number one "instinct" of organizations (which I believe the U.S. and most of the world consider a legal person) and people is self preservation.
Once a church forms we must realize, the church it self must acknowledge that it puts its existence and comfort ahead of worshipping (upholding) the Life, the Way, the Truth.
Governments put self preservation ahead of the common good of the people en mass that they serve.
It is up to all individuals to see this and realize individuals do the same thing. Once we realize this we can balance it against our actions on behalf of others. Next step the more we realize that we are all one then we find ourselves being holistically healthy so as to benefit others. Then we will see that a huge part of our own self preservation, happiness and wholeness hinges on giving, loving and meeting the needs of others. We will see we have needs that others need to fill.

Obama, Romney and the Low-Wage Future of America...
"They will hire people to take care of their large homes and to tutor their children in Chinese, tennis, and sophisticated strategies for getting into the best private schools and universities. They will hire personal assistants to shop, pay their bills, and run their errands. Coaches will come to their homes to instruct them in physical fitness, mental relaxation, and spiritual transcendence. They will need maids, cooks, and gardeners."
I see only one possibility for our society to move past and heal from our increasingly dangerous impasse: to have real conversations with one another. And I don't mean scripted, talking-point-filled debates that turn into a wrestling match.
This piece is self-serving, preachy and finger wagging but at least one good point is made: "Perhaps the most valuable thing to come from our lunch would be the chance for Dan to know me a bit more -- and for me to know him. And I think it would be wonderful if Dan could learn more about the same-sex couples I know who are creating such beautiful families and bring such great gifts to the church." If we could listen to each other and synthesize instead of being on the ready with a comment, argument or quip. If we could what would happen? Let's try it. However it seems clear to me that Jesus didn't come to earth to "pull everyone together," but to preach the Kingdom and show what ultimate love is and to be that love incarnate and to give us life and life more abundantly through his sacrificial death and resurrection, that we could love like him and be reconciled to God, but it ain't always pretty people.
