HOW TO STOP THE EMPIRE –the Trump era reboot

We are now in the Trump era. Even if the folks attempting to tip over Trump by begging electors to vote against the state totals, we will never be able as a nation to escape what has been wrought on us by this election. And I suspect all attempts to reboot the election will fail. […]

How to Stop the Empire in your living room!

I spent my Saturday performing in Zuccotti Park/Liberty Square, the place where OWS started some five years ago. The newest version of HOW TO STOP THE EMPIRE WHILE KEEPING YOUR DAY JOB kicked off around 1 PM and I had a decent crowd of people there to listen. I brought new material in on the […]

Sanders end-game and the DNC

Sign the 9-11 petition, dammit

I call it that because I was left with a certain feeling of lack of…information post 9/11 when the Commission report came out. How can […]
