Congrats to Obama and the DNC
This is brief–I was writing a long piece on the whole ‘fake news’ imbroglio and the word count was in the 2,500+ range so I’ve put it aside for the moment. This is a meme that covers things a tad more succinctly: Regardless of one’s politics, I think we all owe President Obama and Hillary […]
Pedal to the metal (updated)
Trump is ‘transitioning’ as he gets ready to be sworn in. And his Transition team includes people who are going to throw out all efforts to measure or control global heating. He’s even sworn to pull out of the Paris COP 21 agreement, even though it will mean little in terms of sacrifice. Some politicians […]
Reliving the Weimar Republic
I wrote many months ago about the Weimar Republic and how and why it collapsed into fascism once conditions got bad enough. Remember? Bad stuff happening now that Trump has unleashed all his ugly hate in his choices for the people to staff his new administration. Not surprising. I’m amazed that it took everyone so […]
Cog-ni-tive Dis-so-nance in 2016
There’s a year’s worth of blog material in the news over the past five days (and no, I’m not talking about my birthday). I wouldn’t ever have to do anything artsy fartsy here again (memo to self–why is spellcheck okay with ‘artsy’, not with ‘fartsy’?). I hear there was an election that didn’t go the […]
Waiting for next Wednesday
I hate to say this, but unless The Donald falls down and breaks a hip (he IS 70), he will win the presidency next Tuesday. The accumulated drip-drip-drip of bad news for Clinton has reached a point where she cannot pull enough independent voters to win. The re-opened FBI investigation (which seems to dove-tail with […]
A WWII style mobilization on climate (and other BS)
Among the many DNC platform planks forced on the Hillary Clinton campaign by the Bernie campaign was a forceful item on climate and fighting global warming: We believe the United States must lead in forging a robust global solution to the climate crisis. We are committed to a national mobilization, and to leading a global […]
Trump on rigged elections–Crazy?
I really hate Donald Trump. I’m not just saying that now. I’ve posted numerous articles here about him. I definitely do not think he deserves to be president (though I don’t think Clinton does, either–read this). Both of these ‘human hairballs’ are facing indictment for crimes that could rise to the level of impeachable offenses. […]
Assange to be seized? Already dead?
Just up on the Internet–Ecuador is about to extradite Julian Assange to the US for his Wikileaks revelations about the Clinton campaign. My latest news (as of 12:30 NY time) is that Assange has threatened to take his own life rather than be arrested. It’s possible that he’s already dead–rumors are flying. Wikileaks has just […]
I get lots of article feeds from multiple perspectives. This is due to my early support of Bernie Sanders. Many of those who were working in that cause are now putting up articles about Clinton that are sometimes fomented by right-wing sources (Breitbart and Daily Caller come to mind). I also get plenty of anti-Trump […]
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 […]
