JILL STEIN, ET AL. V. JOHN OLIVER, TIME/WARNER …

October 22nd, 2016

So, John Oliver (a comedian I really like) took a shot at Jill Stein and I’ve received two response emails this week from the Jill Stein and Ajamu Baraka campaign. The emails are summarized in this news item from the campaign’s website: We were pleasantly surprised when John Oliver’s research team reached out to us […]

FUCK YOU, EXCLAMATION POINT…!

September 21st, 2016

No words. Sorry. I simply have no words. Thankfully, David Sims, writing in Seth Meyers Proves He’s the Anti-Fallon for The Atlantic, does: When Jimmy Fallon talked to Donald Trump on The Tonight Show last week, he ruffled the presidential candidate’s hair. Seth Meyers, the host of Fallon’s former show Late Night, had a slightly […]

SORRY BERNIE, NONE OF THAT WILL HAPPEN…

September 19th, 2016

I respect Bernie Sanders. I think that Bernie is the closest we’ve come in a very long time to what I think a progressive politician should be. I do not doubt that Bernie is focused on stopping the election of Donald Trump by supporting the deeply flawed candidacy of Hillary Clinton. I am confident that […]

PRESIDENTIAL DEBATES: SCAMMING US SINCE 1988…

September 5th, 2016

I stopped watching the presidential debates when the League of Women Voters declared that the newly instituted corporation, The Commission on Presidential Debates, would “perpetrate a fraud on the American voter.” Seven debates (soon to be eight) later we can see just how big a fraud the commission has been. Green Party Presidential Candidate Jill […]

I SIGNED THE PETITION… YOU SHOULD SIGN TOO…

August 28th, 2016

We The People demand: To the Commission on Presidential Debates: We, the undersigned, demand that the Presidential debates include all Presidential candidates who have qualified for enough state ballots to be a choice for a majority of voters. Polls show that 50% of Americans do not identify as either Democrat or Republican. This means that […]

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 […]

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 […]
