If we invest in alternative energy, we can establish colonies on the moon and explore the stars. We are a young civilization, we humans beings… and it is too early to write us off.
“A revolution is a struggle to the death between the future and the past,” Fidel once memorably said. Though the man has died, the ideas for which he struggled and to which he dedicated his life will undoubtedly live on, not just in Cuba but anywhere imperialism and the exploitation of the weak by the strong is a fact of life.”
Today’s explosive increase in human CO2 emissions and warming of the oceans are recreating the conditions of the great Permian extinction 300 million years ago
Election year nonsense can be very painful.
We cannot continue spending trillions killing millions for billionaires in pursuit of corporate empire. Economists agree this military madness will bankrupt the country and destroy the nation between 2020 and 2030. We are teetering on the brink.

Jamar Clark, 11/15/15 Minneapolis, MN:
Two Minneapolis police officers shot Clark, claiming he “interfered” with emergency responders helping an assault victim. Activists and witnesses maintain that Clark was unarmed and handcuffed when he was shot.
No officers have been charged with a crime for killing Jamar.
“Bernie Sanders said very clearly in the debates with Clinton (and in public statements) that he intends to continue Obama’s 25 wars of choice against smaller and less powerful nations who did not attack us.”
Hillary will not be good for women, people of color, non-millionaires in America… or anyone in 27 nations where she wants to continue Obama’s wars. She will not be good for … Continue reading
… A report by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has found that populations of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish have declined on average by 52 per cent in the last 40 years. And for freshwater creatures the situation is even bleaker, with population collapse of more than three quarters over the same period.
“In March 2011, Clinton supported the NATO attacks on Libya to aid rebels in their attempts to overthrow Moammar Gadhafi, which … led to Libya becoming the failed state that it is today.”
American foreign policy under Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama, when considered by the non-partisan observer, has a sense of continuity – and escalating and expanding aggressiveness.
All of us are more than fed up with mediocrity, hypocrisy, lesser-evil, trickle-down, less-than-perfect settling for spending trillions and killing millions for munitions firms and billionaires who pay no taxes and steal what we pay.
“We have become the aggressor: exporting terror, munitions and wars in attacks on smaller and less powerful nations. “We spend trillions, killing millions, for the benefit of billionaires who pay no taxes, steal the taxes we pay and remain oblivious to concerns about our health, security and education.”
The action managed to shut down the rally for close to ten minutes — to Trump’s audible dismay. At one point, the chants of “USA” brought things to such a halt that Trump resorted to begging for police action.
“Where are the police? Get ’em out,” he says at one point. “Get ’em out.”
“…we are now fighting 27 simultaneous wars… and have been building an empire based on more than 800 offensive military outposts. We sell arms to both sides of artificial conflicts sponsored by the CIA and/or the Pentagon. This increasing and expanding empire, selling unending wars for profit, can only bankrupt the nation.”
Bernie Sanders has a very public record, in the congressional record. He votes to support the expansion of empire through wars for profit. The truth matters. Even when, for some … Continue reading
About 17,000 jazz fans are expected to attend about 30 shows during the 12th annual Portland Jazz Festival, which kicked off Feb. 17, and runs through Sunday, March 1.
Jill Stein was honored to learn yesterday (Wed. Feb. 26,2016) that Chris Hedges,
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and fearless truth-teller, published an article on Truthdig entitled: “Why I Support Dr. Jill Stein for President”.
Los Angeles: I sat down for an interview with Robert Scheer of Truthdig, who has interviewed every president for the past 40 years. Towards the end he told me – on the record – “I’ve spent quite a bit of time interviewing people who became president or who were president… And so, just in this short interview – there’s no question in my mind that you’re every bit the equal or superior to all of the presidential candidates that I’ve talked to.” Needless to say, I was honored to get a thumbs-up from Robert Scheer, who hasn’t previously been a fan of independent politics. Yet another sign of the rapidly changing political landscape!
