The Peace Movement in America: Status Report

The world is rushing headlong toward world war, risking nuclear annihilation and the end of the human race. Eliminating geopolitical idiocy, imperial hubris, and monomaniacal delusions of conquest by challenging our warmongering elites with an effective plan of action should be what shapes and defines the struggle of those noble organizations attempting to abolish war and promote peace throughout the world. Otherwise, the next time I file an update, the response will be … “What peace movement?” Continue reading

The Politics of Panic and Puerile Propaganda

Every day I scan the pages and websites of main stream media and nowhere can I find a discussion of truly critical issues, much less a serious attempt to address them with cogent, creative, promising solutions. This should be shocking but it’s not. It’s the new normal. Continue reading

Russian Roulette

This presidential election is like playing Russian roulette. Voting for Hillary Clinton means they will load six bullets, filling the cylinder. Voting for Donald Trump means they will insert five bullets, leaving one chamber open. Voting for Jill Stein means there will be no bullets in the gun. Gosh … what should I do? Last time I checked, my skull wasn’t bulletproof. Continue reading

More Bases More Bombs More War

The building of new military bases must end. The unnecessary expansion of U.S. military presence throughout the world is bankrupting our economy, incriminating each and every American citizen in horrifying war crimes, risking World War III, and ultimately will collapse the nation and take down the great American experiment. Continue reading

What part of “Listen to me!” didn’t you understand?

It appears that there is one sane person running for president, and that person is to an impressive degree “listening” to the American public and willing to fight for a better life for all Americans, not just the privileged few. Unfortunately, Mr. Sanders doesn’t understand that the policies he currently embraces on defense and international relations will sabotage his noble intentions and the quality of life for everyday Americans will continue to decline, if we don’t end up in a nuclear war with Russia and/or China, in which case there won’t be any life on Earth at all. It’s up to us to straighten him out! Sanders has some solid ideas and a good heart. But on the military and American empire, unfortunately he’s dead wrong. If he wants our votes, we should put him on notice. He must rethink these critical items and clean up his act. Then and only then can we give him our 100% support. Continue reading

Russia Bad! America Good!

The white hat-black hat characterization of the crisis in the Ukraine and Putin’s role is simplistic and dangerous. Extending it to suggest that Russia’s actions are entirely malevolent and bad, America’s are similarly beneficent and good is a prescription for disaster and possibly World War III. Both America and Russia have done some foolish and deceptive things, as well as positive, constructive things. Time to retire the fairy tales. We are all saints and sinners in the game of international politics. Risking total annihilation of humankind seems like a rather high price to win this year’s Good Fairy Trophy. Continue reading

Irony Deficiency Anemia

Irony can be mildly amusing or horribly grating. The inability of our political leaders to appreciate the self-sabotaging irony of their misguided policies will ultimately destroy America as we know it. Continue reading

Militarizing The Police – Part 4

The police are not only being militarized with equipment but with a mentality that makes the average, peaceful, law-abiding citizen the enemy. Continue reading
