George Washington




As a political activist for decades, I have rejoiced in victories for the people and mourned in defeats. I chose the pen name "George Washington" because - as Washington's biographies show - he wasn't a very good strategist, but he was incredibly persistent. He hung in again and again during the worst setbacks and bleakest winters for years. That is what made him great: he simply refused to quit. George Washington therefore inspires me to be a life-long activist.




As an attorney and former law school professor, I am a firm believer that no one - even the high and mighty - are above the law.



As someone trained in environmental systems analysis, I am always looking at how different trends influence each other ... and the big picture.

U.S. Wants to Bomb ISIS In Syria ... Maybe We Should (cough) First Stop ARMING THEM? Arming one side of Syria's multi-sided and bloody civil war will come back to haunt us. Past decisions by the U.S. to arm insurgencies in Libya, Angola, Central America and Afghanistan helped sustain brutal conflicts in those regions for decades.

Top Financial Experts Say World War 3 Is Coming -- Unless We Stop It Poll after poll shows that the American people don't want to get involved in any more wars. After all, we spent trillions in Iraq and Afghanistan, and Americans are exhausted. Not only does a top Pentagon official say we're no safer -- and perhaps less safe -- after 13 years of war, but it has now been shown that war hurts our economy.
