Never be sad
Unhappy
Tired of your life
Always try
and try
and try

Life has ups and downs
Everyone knows it
Be happy
Work hard
And see the results
come clear

Enjoy your life
Life is short
Life is good
Life is sweet
It is very sweet

Beware of “Corporate” Petitions at “Respected” Petition sites

Recently, another “action” group representing for-profit colleges circulated a similar kind of petition looking good but trying to protect their ability to convince adult students still eligible for student loans that their degree is a doorway to a new future but really is up to $40,000 for an Associate of Arts degree.

Second Look Behind the Headlines

Culture War, Class War

Culture War is Class War disguised. The Wealthy Elite--the "Filthy Rich"--foment Culture War in society to distract and cover their real economic motives. Culture War, Class War explores the resulting cultural divide--how it was instigated and kept alive for fifty years in America by certain elite powers and how and why they choose to benefit while tearing families in two and keeping America paralyzed.
