My main intent is to expose the fear-mongering machine; and with any luck, disarm the machine by arming people with information. It's real news that the mainstream ignores, things I consider to be smokescreens, plus a few ideas on what to do about it all. Please see the bottom of the blog for older posts and a wide variety of resources that I consider need-to-know info.

Forgotten About Burma Already?

I'm not so surprised, it was mainly brought forward as a smoke-screen for the real issues that needed your attention anyway, however...

If you are seriously interested in the issue, and have little knowledge about it (like me), then go get your comprehensive education here:

Part One "Burma? What About Burma?"

Part Two "Some Basics"

Part Three "History 1"

Part Four "History 2"

Part Five "Colonial Rule, Buddhist Monks, and World War"

Part Six "Democratic Republic"

Thanks to my friend Maggie that has done a tremendous job at putting this very informative series together. Bravo Maggie Mou!!!

I haven't forgotten about Burma, no way. Unfortunately its been lumped in with a multitude of other scary topics, issues, and world problems.

I didn't blog about though, I just don't know how, honestly. I can barely stand to read about it.

Thank you for the links, however. I think I'll be adding them to my blog.

About Me

My photo
I had been writing a News & Politics column for an online magazine for a little over three years, and just last fall opened this blog to continue publication. I also had the pleasure of being the associate producer for a progressive talk radio host for about a year. Alittle of everything... I've advised small businesses, and I paint all kinds of things (boxes, figurines, greeting cards, personalized children's and other dish-wares, decor...). I still paint when I can, but mainly I'm manage a wholesale company for a Fair Trade, eco-friendly Jewelry & Homewares designer/producer out of Bali called, Verlu. You can see a full catalog of our line on the website, and there is now a list of our retailers for you to visit too. "Wear in everybody's Good Health!"
The political opinions expressed in this blog are in no way related to Verlu. The proud Progressive in me is thrilled to say I'm working with a company that operates in a manner respectful to both Mother Earth & Humanity; however, Progressive Mews is not meant to reflect any opinion - aside from my very own.
