222. thank you for the olive branch

it is beautiful.

united we stand, divided we fall.

it is my understanding the president has followed a long held (since Lincoln) belief that choosing persons of other parties to hold positions in their cabinet to be an expression of true democracy and protection of our constitution. however, now such thinking is proving to be folly because the corporatists and republicans are blood and guts deceivers. they seem to only see our government and our citizens as their "precious" gold mine.they do not care for the people much less our environment. it is all only a means to an end - a big fat bank account.

as for the xl pipeline, president obama has said that he will not support anything which endangers the safety of our environment and people's lives. yet, there are those in high government offices who are interfering with investigations which have uncovered evidence of contamination & who are shutting down these very investigations.

we, the people who care about these issues cannot shut up nor let up at this point. sometimes i think the president hears us and other times, i'm not so sure. he heard us about climate change - but then signed for added drilling off our coasts. ???? wtf? yes, i am upset about this - having grown up in santa barbara and having witnessed our coastline dotted with oil platforms - and the horrible oil spill washed up on our beaches. i was in high school and a budding activist/environmentalist.

the environment is an important issue. did you know the head of the usda is former monsanto? along with toxic dna in our food supply, i see fracking and reckless mining of natural resources as destructive to the future of our loved ones and our planet.

many people in government & across the country have their hands in the financial pot, perhaps even our potus (i hope not !) through their investment portfolios. if you know folks with 401k's or 401c3's, they may not be fully aware of exactly where their retirement funds are invested (but they should!). when i had mine, i went green. not many investment firms offer this option. but i chose one that did.

as for my personal situation, it is not good. but i'm grateful because it could be worse. in fact, i know it would be worse if another goper was our potus.
