Clouds of Pollen in the Spring

Nothing like some scientific knowledge to fill in the blanks, those blanks being the desolate stretches in our brains which result in a lack of understanding and appreciation for the magnificent workings of nature. Continue reading

Gay Whales

I remember back in the 90s seeing a bumper sticker . . . Nuke the gay whales! I thought it was pretty funny at the time. But it’s no longer a joking matter. It’s now the newest battle cry in our president’s noble struggle to make America great again. Continue reading

What Red State vs. Blue State Looks Like To An Ant

We are being kept disorganized and submissive by focusing on what divides us instead of what unites us. Bickering and name-calling only postpones serious efforts to address the greatest challenges we have ever faced and assures the inevitability of collapse and possible extinction of the human race. It’s time to put aside the “gang colors” of political parties and get some serious work done. We can start with the current election. If candidates don’t want to talk about real issues, they don’t deserve our votes. 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 Hands-Down Ultimate Super-Bowl of Showdowns!

You know how on the last page of a book it says, ‘The End’. Then you put the book down and life pretty much goes on like normal, except either you need to return the book to the library or take it down to a used book store and get a couple bucks for it. Well, this time we really mean it. So pay attention! Continue reading

TPP . . . just extrapolate and you’ll get it.

The TPP trade agreement runs over 5,000 pages. There is so much to criticize about this diabolical gift to corporations, we could go on for months detailing its egregious agenda and ruthless grab for power. Much of the analysis and resulting critique is very technical. Most people can be forgiven for having their eyes glaze over and their attention wander. I offer this simple anecdotal report to make this complex issue real and accessible.

Let’s Try To Figure This Out

The bulk of climate change denial studies is generated by bought-and-paid-for lackeys who WORK FOR THE FOSSIL FUEL INDUSTRY! While it represents only 3% of the scientific publications on this critical topic, the PR campaign by giant oil, gas, and coal corporations has been highly effective, so the public remains evenly split. Even for those who are concerned about the threat of climate change to civilization, the self-serving deceptions by participants in the recent COP21 fiasco produce a luster of false hope and delusion. Fortunately, this fools no one who is really paying attention. Unfortunately, it portends bleak prospects for any massive substantial reform of our economic and environmental policies. Coordinated disinformation and willful denial are a devastating combination. Continue reading

Let’s just shake hands and smile for the camera!

John Kerry will represent the U.S. at the upcoming UN climate conference next month in Paris. But he can’t be bothered with legalities. He’s there to have a nice chat, smile and wave for the cameras, and tell the world America is really concerned about climate change. He really cares and so does Obama … cross their hearts and hope to die. Continue reading

NEAR agenda . . . does not include hypoallergenic lipstick.

The agenda of the NEAR Foundation offers a breathtaking vision for social, economic, and political reform. On the other hand, what kind of world would it be without hypoallergenic cosmetics? Continue reading
