Hi John, I think you’ve landed on a significant observation. While I’m not certain that the bloated lords of Greed would ever abandon a target consumer (nor do I believe they’ve lost interest in us - witness all the garish obnoxious commercials), impoverished demographics seem to spend hugely disproportionate amounts of money on worthless shit that gives them the temporary illusion of status.
Was it John Steinbeck who said that poor people don’t see themselves as poor, but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires?
One of my characters (written ca. 2004) says, “...[T]he seduction of materialism is powerful. Especially to an oppressed people with little in the way of hope. And, should it triumph, it will surely suck the life from them...”
As always, a pleasure.

Buy levonorgestrel without prescription, By John Johnson
I sit at my computer on a warm-hot summer day in the Valley, unsure about what I want to write. I turn to MSNBC and see photos and reports celebrating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. Among the main speakers are Joan Baez and Bob Dylan, levonorgestrel buy online, and in a second I’m carried back to 1963. Fda approved levonorgestrel, Back to the days of real hope, love and friendships.
I sit in my little rented guest house in Van Nuys working on the September issue, find cheap levonorgestrel, reminded of why I still do it. I have a fine landlady who subscribes to Change-Links, and a little patio where I feed the neighborhood squirrels, as I recall those heady times, buy levonorgestrel without prescription. Cheap levonorgestrel without prescription, At Valley State College, now Cal State Northridge, I helped organize the first SDS chapter in LA, get levonorgestrel. One of the first to join was Lynn Halmi, Levonorgestrel online without prescription, whom I dated. She and I opened an SDS office on Hoover Street where I put out an SDS newsletter.

Buy levonorgestrel without prescription, We worked closely with the Brown Berets and Black Panther Party and I made friends with two key organizers, Leroy Huggins and Bunchy Carter, who were later assassinated by the FBI (using patsies).
A year later Lynn moved to Berkeley. Levonorgestrel pills, I visited her there a few times but it was too far away for us to maintain a relationship. She was the first person to talk with me about anarchism in a serious political way. She knew about Bakunin, levonorgestrel pill, Malatesta, Levonorgestrel buy drug, Emma Goldman and other famous anarchist organizers, whose books and biographies I hungrily read. My thanks to Lynn Halmi and others like her for spreading the truth, buy levonorgestrel without prescription. They all made a difference, cheap levonorgestrel in usa.
After a big anti-war and Dow Chemical demonstration I organized at Cal State LA, Cheapest levonorgestrel price, I was warned that the cops were going make nocturnal raids and arrest those involved.

Buy levonorgestrel without prescription, I mentioned in another issue that Lynn saved be again.

Out of the crowd a car drives up and its Lynn with her sister. She quickly lets me in and drives through the cops. Discount levonorgestrel, After the massive anti-war actions faded I then dug into community and labor organizing, helping to form groups in poor neighborhoods. Some of us got jobs in factories, levonorgestrel information. I ended up in a warehouse at Olive View Hospital in Sylmar. Compare levonorgestrel prices online, By the 1980’s many of those groups faded away. Soon I lost touch with most radical groups, buy levonorgestrel without prescription. Though for a time I maintained relationships with some folks connected to the Weathermen.

Buy levonorgestrel without prescription, Lynn has long since been married and lives somewhere up north.

These days and for the last several years I’ve been close to a woman with whom I was close during the late sixties. We had lost touch but she heard me on KPFK talking about Change Links a number of years ago and gave me a call. We got together and have been since and she too has saved me, so in that regard my life doesn’t change much.
But the stealthy changes going on all around us accelerate: Corporate America and its police state are still on the move, decimating civil liberties. Jobs by the millions have been shipped to places where workers endure horrible conditions for slave wages. Hundreds of phony pro-corporate elections have boosted the power of phony puppet leaders who flagrantly abuse the power. Only a few countries now remain that attempt to defy US imperialism.

The lot had been a strawberry farm, discount yagara online, made vacant when the Japanese owner was carted off to an internment camps. It stayed vacant for about 15 years.

Chaparral Fireland, Cheap yagara from canada, occasional contributing writer and regular editor and proofreader for Change-Links, responds to John’s column:
I was almost seven months old when the US joined the war in Europe. One of my earliest, most vivid memories was VJ day, four years later. Buy yagara herbal viagra without prescription, My family had a home in Studio City, and on this hot August day we were all hanging out around the pool. Suddenly, low price yagara, some family friends burst into the backyard to where we were, shouting, “The war is over. The war is over!”
This was far more interesting than anything I’d ever experienced; for I’d never seen grownups burst into or out of anywhere. Yagara in australia, On top of that, they all were hugging and kissing. Laughing and crying. Real hugs and kisses, buy yagara herbal viagra without prescription. Real laughter and tears. Also grownup “firsts” for these then innocent eyes.

Quietly, I left the pool, walked to the small intersection a few houses away and — despite the prohibition against my doing so — crossed the street alone and continued walking. Buy yagara herbal viagra without prescription, All the while the pavement burned my feet while the sun dried my damp hair and bottom. All the while, Yagara free delivery, the noise of honking horns became louder and more continuous.
When I got to the major intersection cars were parked at all angles in the street, people pouring from them and from houses and apartments, this time, a sea of grownups embracing, kissing, online yagara, laughing and weeping. All of it real. Urgent. Immediate, buy yagara herbal viagra without prescription. And — in the cognition and language of a four year old child — I observed and declared the following:
Perhaps it’s true that I’ll grow up, Drug yagara online purchase, someday. But I’ll never put my exuberance, my laughter and my tears so far away that it takes some huge event, like the end of a war, to shake them loose.
When I returned to the pool, yagara malaysia, no one had noticed my absence. Just as — throughout history — appallingly few grownups notice the sly transition from seemingly benign times to the open persecution of designated undesirables, absurd legislation and draconian reprisals replacing the quaint concepts of honor, transparency and fair play. Buy yagara herbal viagra without prescription, And, despite my resolve, only a few years later my own tears were tinged with terror and grief, as well as an abysmal sense of hollow isolation, when I participated in my first “drop drill,” and learned about the horrifying atomic weapon resulting in that so-called “victory” over Japan that my parents had so joyously celebrated.

Amazingly, they tipped their riot helmets at me and passed me through the line, buy yagara herbal viagra without prescription. Despite that, the long day ended with bloodied faces and cracked skulls.
During the late eighties I was close friends with an American-Japanese woman. Her eighth birthday was August 8, 1945, buy yagara without prescription, the same day as the bombing of Hiroshima, which she’d witnessed from the doorway of her village home. From that day onward, she was unable to celebrate her birthday. Buy yagara herbal viagra without prescription, In 1988 several of her friends threw her a party. Lowest price for yagara, We were about a dozen women sharing hunky videos, pizza and ice cream, applying our knowledge of herbal, chakra and meridian healing with one another as well as our laughter and tears (both real!). Later, she and I sat under the midnight sky atop Mulholland in her hot tub, sharing memories of our lives, losses and miracles.
I lost touch with her shortly after she phoned me a year or two later to say that she was returning to Yosemite, where her parents’ thriving apple orchard had been before they were interned, and their property stolen by Yankee carpetbaggers. Was she returning to reclaim her ancestral heritage. Or to start a new life near her son and his family who already lived there. Whatever it was, I failed to notice the sly transition that carried this precious friend away from me, and out of my life.

OK. There’s the fiscal cliff – a self-inflicted economic hotfoot, but nothing irrevocable.
Then there’s the physical cliff – the remorseless warming of our planet driven by human emissions and the laws of physics, already irrevocable, Price of clomid, and drifting toward a full-scale planetary disaster of biblical proportions if we don’t take drastic actions.
As the world meets at Doha, Qatar for yet another attempt to reign in global warming, guess which one the press, order clomid cheap online, Congress, pundits, Drug clomid, the president and other assorted beltway seers are obsessing on.
You got it. The fiscal cliff.
And while the fiscal cliff could hurt many people for an election cycle or two, its effects are limited in time and geography, clomid pills, and it is easily avoided using popular policies, assuming a little guts and leadership from Democrats and the President.
Global warming, on the other hand, is … well … global. We're already locked into severe adverse consequences for centuries, and scientists believe that unless we do something drastic and soon, it is likely to trigger feedbacks which make the world warmer than any of our models suggest. Ultimately, over the long term, methane releases from clathrates and permafrost could become self-reinforcing, proceeding on their own power and raising temperatures far higher than anything the Earth has experienced in over 55 million years and keeping them there for eons, buy clomid without prescription. Cheap clomid tablet, The litany of horror the physical cliff would create is long and dire. Extinction of half of all species, sea levels rising continuously for centuries, a billion refugees by 2050, record droughts, discount clomid online, expanding deserts, famine, Clomid cheap price, epic storms, as many as a billion deaths … on and on and on.
The fiscal cliff? Certainly it could impose hardships on people. The enforced austerity would likely do here in the US, what it is doing in Europe – cause a deep and serious recession. But this would be reversible. We’d need only quit swallowing Republican talking points about austerity, cheap clomid on internet, government incompetence, and the mythical power of the private sector to confer prosperity by pure serendipity … to turn our economy around. Lowest price for clomid, If we’re smart, the policies we use to cut greenhouse gasses could cut the deficit, create jobs and save the economy while saving the world.
As we go into the Doha talks you’ll hear conservatives saying we can’t afford to tackle climate change while the economy is down, buy clomid online cheap, because cutting fossil fuel use would hurt our economy. Buy clomid without prescription, But here’s the thing. If we’re smart, the policies we use to cut greenhouse gasses could cut the deficit, create jobs and save the economy while saving the world.
For example, Clomid pharmacy, clean energy investments create three times as many jobs per dollar than spending on fossil fuel does. And as more people work, the economy flourishes, tax revenue goes up, cheap clomid pill, and government expenditures go down. Which of course, cuts deficits. So jobs go up while emissions go down. Overnight clomid, And a modest carbon tax would raise as much as $1.25 trillion in revenue over the next decade, while cutting carbon.
Given this reality, every dollar we spend on fossil fuels at the expense of clean energy, find clomid no prescription required, actually destroys jobs and costs us money.
You’d think, given this reality and the mandate Democrats got in the recent election, the President would be putting together a strategy that uses increased taxes on the rich, and cuts to fossil fuel subsidies to fund investments in clean energy infrastructure. Not only would this create jobs, but it would position the US to be a leader in the manufacture of clean energy infrastructure and hardware – the technology of the 21st Century, buy clomid without prescription.
And then there’s that save the world thing. Cheap clomid pharmacy, Yet shortly after the election, Obama had this to say about climate change and the economic crisis:
Understandably, I think the American people right now have been so focused and will continue to be focused on our economy and jobs and growth that, you know, clomid approved, if the message is somehow we're going to ignore jobs and growth simply to address climate change, I don't think anybody's going to go for that. Clomid purchase, I won't go for that.
Really, Mr. President? Business leaders know better. Buy clomid without prescription, Here’s what a GE Vice President had to say about this false dichotomy:
There’s this theory that you have to pick one: economics or environmental performance. That’s nonsense, cheap clomid overnight delivery. Innovation is the way you can have both.
Last year clean energy technology generated more than a trillion dollars to our economy. Next year it will exceed that. And prices for renewable energy are plummeting, while the cost of oil and coal is going up. Clomid buy drug, It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that if you want jobs, growth and tax revenue, you want to put your money into clean energy.
But it does take leadership and a little political courage to take on the new axis of stupidity and greed formed by the Republican Party and fossil fuel interests, purchase clomid no rx.
Doha will mark a turning point in history. The path we take will define our future. Down one path is devastation, widespread misery, and irrevocable loss. Down the other is prosperity and a sustainable world, buy clomid without prescription.
The choice is ours. The time is now. History will hardly note what we did with the fiscal cliff, but if we fail to address the physical cliff, we will be judged and found wanting.
