EXXON, NOT ISIL/ISIS, IS OUR GREATEST THREAT…

August 21st, 2016

We have spent billions creating a security infrastructure to keep us safe from a threat that pales in comparison to the existential danger to humanity: Global Warming/Climate Change. We are playing shuffleboard on the Titanic while the waters rush in. Writing in Green Party candidate Jill Stein calls for climate state of emergency for The […]

A REALLY GREAT USE OF YOUR 64 MINUTES…

August 18th, 2016

Marc Lamont Hill, writing in For real progressives, Jill Stein is now the only choice for The Guardian, makes his case: The stakes of Wednesday night’s CNN Green party town hall were high—third-party candidates are rarely allowed entry into the corporate media universe, which thrives on the false narrative that only two parties exist here […]

MARGE PIERCY: THE LOW ROAD

August 16th, 2016

If I had to clear my library of all other writers, Marge Piercy would remain. No writer has more deeply affected my education and my attitudes toward so many issues of social and political justice. Yesterday I noticed an uptick in hits on a particular post I wrote back in December 2012. Today, only 84 […]

BERNIE JILL OR BUST…!

August 11th, 2016

As I expected, the fight against the plutocracy is moving down ticket while working to push Jill Stein’s numbers high enough to get her in the debates. Victor Tiffany co-founder of Revolt Against Plutocracy emails: Fellow revolutionaries, There is a push to replace members of Congress with Berniecrats and other progressive revolutionaries. Revolt Against Plutocracy […]

HOUSTON, WE HAVE A SOLUTION…

August 5th, 2016

Tom Dart, reporting in ‘The only other option’: Bernie Sanders backers turn to Green party’s Jill Stein for The Guardian writes: [T]hen [Bernie Sanders] lost the Democratic presidential primary to Hillary Clinton, and backed her for the White House last month at the national convention. That was where [Vanessa] Tijerina and Sanders diverged. “A lot […]

WHY GARY JOHNSON IS NOT MY GUY…

August 5th, 2016

There are some existential perils so great and so imminent that only government is capable of addressing and shutting down that threat. Global warming/Climate change is just such a danger and while I get the whole libertarian concept of keeping hands off the liberty of others, when the monster is in my bedroom splashing gasoline […]

BERNIE JILL OR BUST…

August 5th, 2016

All systems are rigged to favor those who write the rules or, as Johnny Hart reminded us: Always remember the Golden Rule: He who has the gold makes the rules. The only way to win when faced with a non-win situation is, like cadet James Tiberius Kirk, to break the rules. Victor Tiffany, Co-Founder, Revolt […]

SORRY BERNIE, JILL’S GETTING MY DOLLARS NOW…

August 4th, 2016

Bernie emails: Jeff, Election days come and go, but the struggle for economic, social, racial and environmental justice continues. Together, we built something special and unprecedented through our presidential campaign. Now, we are going to take the next steps for our political revolution. We are building a new organization called Our Revolution. Our goal will […]

DANAE SPEAKS FOR DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS…

August 3rd, 2016

[Updated @ 1600, see below…] [Update @ 1600: Scott Adams writes: Clinton’s side (which is my side too, for my personal safety) has made you fear the imaginary monster under the bed so you’ll ignore the thief going through your drawers. That’s weapons-grade persuasion. Of course, Wiley understands that monsters under the bed are non-partisan […]

LESSER EVIL, NO… VOTE GREATER GOOD, YES…!

August 3rd, 2016

There is a 90 percent chance that I will vote for Jill Stein in November. As for the other 10 percent, I may still choose to write in Bernie, but that looks less likely every day. I did vote for Jill Stein in 2012 (just like I voted for Ralph Nader in 1996) so I […]

NINA TURNER ON THE NIGHTLY SHOW PANEL…

PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT…

July 22nd, 2016

There has been a political conspiracy meme running this election year(s) that Donald Trump is actually in cahoots with the Clintons, more effectively than anyone could have imagined, to destroy the traditional Republican candidates and then self-destruct so that Hillary can dance into the White House. Or, maybe the run is all a prank gone […]

THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE LOVES HILLARY…?

July 21st, 2016

As if anyone needs the final little nudge to convince them that both parties are fucked because they’re both so far up the asses of the billionaires that Charon gets more sunlight, then consider this headline from The Intercept: Chamber of Commerce May Prefer Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump. Zaid Jilani writes: The president of […]

NINA TURNER AND JILL STEIN IN 2016…?

July 17th, 2016

When I checked my stats for yesterday I noticed a sudden interest in a post from 13 February: NINA TURNER A VICE PRESIDENTIAL CONTENDER…? In that post I wrote: So, yesterday I got into a fairly heated debate with a co-worker about Hilary Clinton vs. Bernie Sanders. At one point I said that there were […]

I FEEL LIKE A CLEVELAND INDIANS FAN…

July 12th, 2016

I’m no sports fan, but today I have an inkling what coming so close time after time after time and then losing feels like. I finally get the feeling of mumbling “wait until next year” into your beer. I’ll get right to the nut. I got a 1,422-word email from Bernie five hours ago. The […]

THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS IS STILL EVIL…

July 9th, 2016

In my book evil is like dark or cold, the absence of their opposites good, light and heat. So, for me, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump both represent the absence of good and voting for either is a negative vote for my country; a country and a constitution I gave 11 years of my life […]

NINA TURNER A VICE PRESIDENTIAL CONTENDER…?

February 13th, 2016

So, yesterday I got into a fairly heated debate with a co-worker about Hilary Clinton vs. Bernie Sanders. At one point I said that there were plenty of women I would happily vote for as our next president. (In 2014 I voted for two women running for President/Vice President: Jill Stein and Cheri Honkala). Clinton […]

IF YOU HAVE NOT YET VOTED, CONSIDER…

November 6th, 2012

Glenn Greenwald writes: This, to me, has always been the most uniquely pernicious aspect of the War on Terror civil liberties assaults of the last decade: they will not end when the “war” does because the “war” will have no end. Each new power is embedded permanently into the political framework, incrementally transforming the political […]

THE TWITTER CURSE…

November 5th, 2012

[Updated on 8 November.] Mano Singham writes: Dana Millbank reports on what he saw during the debates. He said that the reporters were not in the auditorium but were in a separate room in which the debate was shown on a large screen. But the reporters were also glued to their laptop screens reading other […]

FIND ME A REPUBLICAN REJECTING FEMA HELP…

November 4th, 2012

Matt Taibbi writes: In the abstract, most Americans want a smaller and less intrusive government. In reality, what Americans really want is a government that spends less money on other people. Elect Jill Stein and Cheri Honkala…
