Could This Restore Our Planet?



What if there was a holistic energy solution that once implemented would bring a healthy planet, solve the worlds, pollution problems by removing the Greenhouse gases, produce Bio-fuel, organic food, allow people to live tax free, and bring income to the community in a myriad of ways. There is a man who says it can be done. His Name is James Anderson and he has designed something he swears will do all I just stated. It is called the ORB integrated systems.. and it is just that. James Anderson has taken proven-to-work technologies and integrated them into a single holistic planatary solution.

James Anderson is convinced that this system is what will heal this planet. " I have has spent 30 years researching all the problems of sustainable energy and finding true solutions" James stated. He is asking no money from anyone right now so we can explore this without feeling like we are being asked to buy something.

Some time back there was a similar concept called a Venus project. The Venus project gave a utopia concept in a Star Trek kinda way. It gathered money from people and never came through with the design. People yelled fraud of course and many called it a cult. After interviewing James Anderson the Designer of ORB Systems.. His statement was this regarding the Venus Project.. "The Venus Project could not work because there were flaws in the entire design which his system has eliminated".

Besides James is not trying to create a Utopia. He is just trying to heal the Earth. So give it a look..investigate it..see what you think..

We owe it to our children, our grandchildren and all life on this planet to investigate and consider all possible solutions to the trashy planet we as humans have created.

Nigeria: Make torture a crime now!

Imagine spending the last eight years in jail for a crime you confessed to under torture; after police beat you, shot you in the hand, and hung you up in a cell for hours. Your forced confession has been used to sentence you to death.

This is the life of Moses Akatugba, who was charged with stealing three phones and other items, and his treatment reflects how torture is used across Nigeria: as the main tactic for extracting information from suspects in police and military custody.

Sign our petition now calling for the Nigerian government to pass a bill into law criminalizing torture.

Nigeria has a historic opportunity to pass a bill against torture and make it a crime, before the National Assembly is dissolved with the February 2015 elections. The Nigerian Constitution prohibits torture, as does international human rights law - but this is not enough, and victims deserve justice.

Help us stop torture in Nigeria and make sure no one else suffers like Moses, at the hands of torturers.
Sign the petition urging the Nigerian Assembly to make torture a crime.

Many thanks,

Danny Vannucchi,
Stop Torture campaigner

Please sign this petition to the government of Luxembourg


Big news coming out of Luxembourg! Some of the world’s biggest companies, from Dyson to FedEx and from Burberry to Amazon -- they’ve all secured secret sweetheart tax deals from Luxembourg, that has allowed many to slash their tax bills, in some cases to almost nothing.

The Luxembourg Prime Minister is unrepentant. He says “Luxembourg was not breaking any rules.” Of course it's not -- his government devised rules to exploit loopholes in international tax law!
Luxembourg is a tiny place where small ripples can make big waves, where the government is open and accessible. So if we make a lot of noise, we would have a big impact on the government there.

Let’s show Luxembourg's government that we’re fed up with them facilitating corporate tax dodging.

Thanks to a global investigation carried out by over 80 journalists in 26 countries, we know the truth about how the biggest global corporations have cheated us. They’ve used complex webs of internal loans, interest payments and funnelled profits through Luxembourg subsidiaries. What’s truly shocking is that the ‘sweetheart’ deals are all approved by Luxembourg and not illegal. It’s nothing more than a massive tax con-trick.

The expose blows the lid off how global mega-corporations are ripping off ordinary taxpayers right around the world, from the UK and US to Brazil and China. -- but they can only continue to cheat us because of tax havens like Luxembourg.

SumOfUs was created in part to hold tax dodging corporations accountable. This is a huge opportunity created by some outstanding investigative journalism to really show the politicians of Luxembourg that they can no longer aid and abet corporate tax dodgers.
Can you post a quick message to the government of Luxembourg?

Now Is the Time to Expand Social Security

Bernie Sanders: Social Security Needs to be Expanded!

Published on Nov 4, 2014
Alex Lawson, executive director of Social Security Works, talks with Senator Bernie Sanders about expanding our Social Security system.



No matter what form it comes in (a concession in budget negotiations, a so called “grand bargain” to reform earned benefits, or as a way to avoid another government shutdown), we know what is coming.

Republicans and Wall Street front groups are coming for our earned benefits.

Tell Democrats in Washington to stand strong against any compromise that includes cuts to Social Security. Tell them that winning in 2016 depends on their strength in opposing cuts and fighting to expand Social Security benefits.

Tell Washington Democrats that expanding Social Security is not only excellent policy, it is excellent politics. And when they stand with us, we’ll fight for them.

We need to expand, not cut, our Social Security system. 

Raise you voice on Social Security expansion HERE.

No More Job-Killing Trade Agreements

Congress: Vote no on "fast-track" authority for the Trans-Pacific Partnership. American jobs are too important to rush through another bad trade agreement.

No to Republibama Government

Early indications are that neither the new Republican Congress nor the Democratic minority (nor President Obama) will be pushing for national legislation on the model of what voters just passed in ballot initiatives across the country: raising the minimum wage, banning fracking, funding schools, taxing millionaires and billionaires, legalizing marijuana, reducing prison sentences, providing paid sick leave, and imposing background checks on gun purchases.

On the contrary, the Republican Congress expects to find a willing partner in President Obama for a conservative agenda that only a minority of Americans support. The White House and Republicans are talking up the NAFTA-on-steroids Trans-Pacific Partnership that nobody campaigned on.

Obama apparently will delay until January a vote on the war he's already intensifying in Iraq and Syria. His FCC is pushing for the elimination of internet neutrality. The new Congress will be pushing for the tar sands pipeline that Obama has for years refused to stop.

Obama's surveillance state will have a willing partner, as will his agenda of burying information on the crimes of his predecessor.

And if you expect Congressional Democrats to push back strongly in support of middle class and working class Americans, you see something in them that many voters don't.

Click here to say no to war, environmental destruction, and media monopolies.

Click here to say yes to a higher minimum wage, a smaller military, smaller prisons, and more investment in schools.

Click here for the progressive initiatives that passed on November 4th even if few candidates worthy of them were on the ballots.

Click here if you know that social change takes a lot more than voting, and you're ready to work for it.

Tell President Obama: Fix the FCC and protect the Internet

 

Sign the petition!

 

Tell President Obama:

"FCC Chair Tom Wheeler is advancing a plan that would kill the open Internet. It’s time to live up to your promise and stop him."

Over the last four months, you and more than 3 million Americans called on the FCC to enact strong rules to protect the open Internet. But it’s apparently not enough for Tom Wheeler, President Obama’s chair of the agency...
