Paying For The Peace Dividend

Be as skeptical as you want, paying for the Peace Dividend with a major realignment of our priorities and tax law, is the easy part. Fighting off the barrage of pseudo-scholarly neoliberal propaganda will be the challenge. The autocrats who now being criminally enriched by the current regime of crony capitalism and pay-for-play politics will battle this with every dirty trick they can come up with. Truth and fairness are on our side. We must not waver. We can pay for this. We can do this! Continue reading

The “I’ll vote for Jill if you will” Pledge Campaign

No more “lesser evil” voting or concerns about “throwing your vote away”! There’s a way to establish a plurality victory for Dr. Jill Stein, Green Party candidate for president. Why hold your nose and vote for either a sociopathic egomaniac or a psychopathic war criminal, when you can put a brilliant woman in the White House who will serve the needs of all Americans, not just the billionaire class? Dr. Jill Stein, America’s first female president!

The BS Challenge

Cheer leading and hero-worship are the easy part. Revolution is hard work. So here’s my challenge to all those people feeling the Bern. Are your hearts truly filled with the awe-inspiring message of Bernie Sanders? Are you ready to do some heavy-lifting? Or is Chris Hedges right? Is this just more BS along the historical road to disintegration and collapse? If you’re serious, there’s important work to be done. Continue reading

Nothing new . . . but who knew or even knows now?

Sometimes it is difficult to make sense out of some of the foreign policy decisions our leaders make. Why did we attack Iraq twice? Why did we destroy Libya? Why did we start the crisis in the Ukraine? Why do we overthrow the democratically elected leaders of some nations, court the friendship and favor of monarchists and tyrants? Why are we now aggressively provoking conflict with Russia and confronting China? This book goes the long mile toward explaining what underlies some of America’s most nefarious activities on the international front. Continue reading

The Real Debt Ceiling

THEY OWN! WE OWE! And that’s how you get the worst wealth inequality in our history. Other than a handful of legislators __ Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren certainly are talking about it __ and our president who gives lip service to this critical issue, there is no one in public life who is serious about addressing this threat to our existence as a nation. No one! Just about everyone in elected office __ to a man, to a woman __ needs to be replaced. Target date November 2016!
