Well-funded, vigorous voter turnout drives in ten states that are driven exclusively by the civic community. Freed of the shackles of the serial loser DNC, this independent civic drive can easily turn the tide in these key electoral swing states.

A new Kavanaugh Watch group -- lean and sharp -- needs to be created to publicize the Five Corporatist Judges. Their unjust decisions, hiding behind stylized plausibility and casuistry, need to be unmasked and regularly relayed to the American people. Their speeches to the Federalist Society and other plutocratic audiences need to be publicized and critiqued. Importantly their refusal to recuse themselves must be reported
SHARE Friday, May 18, 2018 Trump: Making America Dread Again
Trump's marauders are raging through one agency after another, revoking, freezing, or suspending lifesaving health/safety protections. Weaker job safety, auto safety, air and water pollution standards, and pesticide protections spell death, sickness, and illnesses with their attendant family anguish and costs, including to taxpayers.

While Trump tweets and hopefully reconsiders his earlier cruel budget cuts for FEMA and other life-saving federal agencies -- such as the Centers for Disease Control and the EPA -- the people are swinging into action on the ground. May they swing into wise and just action in the next elections -- both as new candidates and, high horizon, informed voters. For there is a much better America to be had.

Given the retrograde pits inhabited by our ruling politicians and the avaricious over-reach of myopic big-business bosses, the self-described pillars of our society must step up to reverse the decline of our country. Stand tall in support of justice in these trying times.
SHARE Wednesday, April 26, 2017 Trump's Hundred Days of Rage and Rapacity
The Lawless-loving corporatists have worked overtime to besmirch the word "regulation" (or law and order for corporations) and edify the word "deregulation," to help bring about their dream state of dismantled or weakened regulation.

Why isn't the Democratic Party landsliding the worst and cruelest Republican Party in the past 162 years?
Just take a glance at their record votes and you'll wonder why the Republican representatives don't just incorporate themselves and be done with any pretense that they are real people.

If you cannot use the law to pursue your rights -- say health coverage -- under fine-print contracts or gain adequate compensation for your wrongful injuries, you are being strapped by lawlessness through the design of the power elites. They, of course, live under their own rules -- monetarily greased through their plunder of the political economy --

Bernie Sanders is facing the verdict of closed primaries in many states which bar independent voters from voting for any of the Democratic or Republican candidates. Pointedly, Senator Sanders won only one of the five states with primaries on April 26, 2016: Rhode Island. Why? Because that state has an open primary allowing independent voters, heavily pro-Sanders, to carry him to victory.

Just when the prospects for single-payer or full Medicare for everyone, with free choice of doctors and hospitals, appear to be going nowhere, from Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley comes a stirring that could go national and make single-payer a reality.

As the FOIA approaches its 50th year, it faces a disturbing backlash from scientists tied to the agrichemical company Monsanto and its allies. In March, the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified the herbicide glyphosate -- which is sprayed as Roundup on many genetically engineered crops -- as "probably carcinogenic to humans."
SHARE Saturday, September 26, 2015 Mass Media: Raise Your Expectations for Your Country
The mass media, with usual exceptions, have allowed themselves to be pulled down to the level of the political circus. If the Republican Party's early primary campaigns for the presidential nomination had an elephant and a clown car, Ringling Brothers would be in trouble.

The taxpayers elected you -- and therefore pay your salary -- with the expectation that you would be responsible legislators, but your behavior as Committee and Subcommittee chairs, along with that of House Speaker Boehner, regarding the IRS has been wholly irresponsible.

Nobody is forcing skilled workers from less developed countries to come to the US other than dictators, but if the US wants peace, stability and better livelihoods to have a chance, it has to tell its giant corporations to pull back on their gluttonous appetite to recruit the "cream of the crop" from these countries and invest in American skills.

The Bush/Cheney sociocide of Iraq, together with the loss of tens of thousands of U.S. soldiers' lives, countless injuries and illnesses, registers, with the passage of time, no recognition by you that you did anything wrong nor have you accepted responsibility for the illegality of your military actions without a Congressional declaration of war.
SHARE Friday, October 4, 2013 Congressional "Mad Dogs" Render the Powerful Powerless
Why have all these power brokers suddenly become powerless, including all the business lobbies? One explanation is that hyped-up Tea Party activists can threaten primaries against moderate Republicans. In addition these "mad dogs" are in a feeding frenzy and cannot see any reality beyond their pack.

You'd think Ted Cruz would have used his time to talk specifically about the suffering that uninsured people and their children are going through, especially in the Lone Star State. Or about what could replace Obamacare other than his repeated "free market" solution, which is to say the "pay or die" profiteering, tax-subsidized corporate system.
