The Visionary Activist Show – Recovery Re-Combobulating Show


robinrosebennett2012photoRadio show pre-recorded, (because Caroline is journeying out to a gathering of activists, then convening Post-Election woof woof Town Hall on Tuesday, November 15th 7pm at Open Secret in San Rafael, CA) with guest herbalist, author, and teacher Robin Rose Bennett, author of  “Healing Magic” and “The Gift of Healing Herbs,” our mild recovery re-combobulating show, with recipes for moving towards woofy sanity…





And here be Michael Moore’s recipe:

Morning After To-Do List:

  1. Take over the Democratic Party and return it to the people. They have failed us miserably.
  2. Fire all pundits, predictors, pollsters and anyone else in the media who had a narrative they wouldn’t let go of and refused to listen to or acknowledge what was really going on. Those same bloviators will now tell us we must “heal the divide” and “come together.” They will pull more hooey like that out of their ass in the days to come. Turn them off.
  3. Any Democratic member of Congress who didn’t wake up this morning ready to fight, resist and obstruct in the way Republicans did against President Obama every day for eight full years must step out of the way and let those of us who know the score lead the way in stopping the meanness and the madness that’s about to begin.
  4. Everyone must stop saying they are “stunned” and “shocked”. What you mean to say is that you were in a bubble and weren’t paying attention to your fellow Americans and their despair. YEARS of being neglected by both parties, the anger and the need for revenge against the system only grew. Along came a TV star they liked whose plan was to destroy both parties and tell them all “You’re fired!” Trump’s victory is no surprise. He was never a joke. Treating him as one only strengthened him. He is both a creature and a creation of the media and the media will never own that.
  5. You must say this sentence to everyone you meet today: “HILLARY CLINTON WON THE POPULAR VOTE!” The MAJORITY of our fellow Americans preferred Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. Period. Fact. If you woke up this morning thinking you live in an effed-up country, you don’t. The majority of your fellow Americans wanted Hillary, not Trump. The only reason he’s president is because of an arcane, insane 18th-century idea called the Electoral College. Until we change that, we’ll continue to have presidents we didn’t elect and didn’t want. You live in a country where a majority of its citizens have said they believe there’s climate change, they believe women should be paid the same as men, they want a debt-free college education, they don’t want us invading countries, they want a raise in the minimum wage and they want a single-payer true universal health care system. None of that has changed. We live in a country where the majority agree with the “liberal” position. We just lack the liberal leadership to make that happen (see: #1 above).

Let’s try to get this all done by noon today.

    I love your guest’s invoking Alice Walker’s grandmother spirit; it reminds me of Isabel Allende’s naming the extra-dimensional being she encountered while imbibing Ayahuasca. She named her the “Grandmother Spirit.”

    Mirth: Yes, it’s true: You cannot laugh and be afraid at the same time (I’m paraphrasing Stephen Colbert from election night). Bless artful, loving satire and keep your sense of humor healthy folks! We’re gonna need it.
    I’d like to offer a blessing, if I may.
    I saw a bumper sticker today said “Billionaires can’t buy the — and at the end of the line was a circle with a sparrow in it. And it reminded me of the moment when the bird alighted on the edge of the podium where Bernie Sanders was orating for tens of thousands of people. The rally stopped, Bernie’s face lighted up like a little kid’s. The bird hung out for a while; everyone waited. And then it took off, and everyone cheered, Bernie broke out into an even bigger grin. Check it out on Youtube.

    We’re capable of having moments like that in a presidential campaign.

    That’s really who we are, in large part.
