United? What does the 'united' in United States of America now stand for? What exactly during these contentious, deeply divisive, tragically troubled times does it mean? Were we ever united? Or is it just more boilerplate mythology that allows us to hide from the real truth? That being the 'us' (we the conquerors) vs. 'them' (slaves, Native Americans) world view, that was and still is the historical foundation for our national unity?
A limited nuclear war will go a long way towards brightening our future., From InText

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!

Along Came Joe Some criticize Vice-President Biden for his gaffs. His gaffs are trivial compared to the actual stands he has taken over the years on a wide variety of issues. Gaffs are for laughs. Sinister policies are not funny when a man is running for the highest office in the land.

Julian Assange: Could 50,000 People Provide a Human Corridor? Julian Assange should be getting a Nobel Prize, not being persecuted. What can we do to save this courageous, heroic man? Can we get 50,000 people to show up at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London to provide him a "human corridor" to escape to another embassy? They can't arrest or kill 50,000 people.

Be Afraid ... Be Very Afraid! The sales pitch for military expansion and more astronomical defense spending has just reached a whole new level of hysteria. Washington DC is flabbergasted! Someone figured out we can't win a war against Russia or China. (Like we've won any wars since WWII but let's not be negative.) But there's a small detail left entirely out of this discussion. What kind of war are these peddlers of paranoia talking about?

Guillotine or Exile? How about a new law for the 1%? Pay your taxes or you're out of here. We'll give them a Certificate of Appreciation for their mansions and vacation homes, which will be turned into homeless shelters, alternative schools, hospices to provide care for people who are lacking proper health care, centers for peace studies.

The Richest Sociopath in the World Jeff Bezos is referred to as 'The Richest Man in the World' and his personal fortune, while growing by $191,000 each minute, is currently estimated at $168 billion. We need to correct that labeling. He should henceforth be called 'The Richest Sociopath in the World.'

Book Review: "The Russian Peace Threat: Pentagon on Alert" by Ron Ridenour Ron Ridenour's masterfully-written indictment of U.S. militarism and its take-all-prisoners imperial project is of such breathtaking scope and astonishing depth, it would be hard to exaggerate its value and timeliness,as the foreign policy of the Empire of Chaos now as never before in recorded history, steers the world toward apocalyptic confrontation and puts the survival of the entire human race at risk.

Book Review: Healing the Land with Tao by Gary Lindorff Intentionally or not, with his new book "Healing the Land with Tao",Gary Lindorff has created a loosely structured operating manual for the soul. We'll all get different messages and meanings. We will benefit to differing degrees. But if I could choose only one book to help break the chains of my mental and spiritual incarceration, it would be this book.

CFAR Candidates: The Real Deal Yes, there's hope in the midst of the mass of toxic sludge clogging our electoral machinery. Along comes the grass-roots voter-based initiative called CFAR, Contract For American Renewal. It takes the guesswork out of voting by exposing the phonies and frauds. The CFAR is a populist uprising targeting the November 2018 election, introducing honesty, integrity, transparency, and accountability back into the electoral process.

A Cure For Mad Trump Disease Mad Trump Disease has not just infected the Oval Office. It's running rampant through the media and most of the political establishment. Insanity is the new normal. I don't want to blow the ending of this article, so I'll just say this: When the inmates have taken over the institution, it's still the person with the keys who decides who locks the doors at night.

Trump's Gone Too Far This Time! Things just keep getting weirder with the current administration. In a surprising and highly controversial move, President Donald Trump by executive order today made Russian the official language of the United States of America.

Candidate Contracts: Why Populist Candidates Will Want to Sign the Contract This article is meant to clear any misconceptions and dispel related fears about the candidate contract strategy. I am addressing the populist-progressive candidates themselves -- the only ones worthy of the strategy, the only ones worthy in my opinion of holding public office.

Candidate Contracts: Weaponizing Populist Electoral Campaigns A short time ago, I characterized the practical intent, the rubber-hits-the-road goal of the candidate contract strategy in these words: "The purpose of the candidate contract strategy is to get the good guys elected and throw the bad guys out of office." That sums it up as succinctly as I know how. Time to put the strategy to work. This article tells how we do it.

Candidate Contracts: A Democratic Renewal Here is a video and text explaining how candidate contracts take the guesswork out of voting and set a whole, new standard for electoral integrity in our country. This will answer any questions on why this unprecedented approach is now necessary, and what the ethical and political basis is for making such a proposal.

No Candidate Contract No Vote Our democracy is in the middle of an existential crisis. That hardly suggests we should turn to those who have been participating in, often instrumental in engineering the mess, to see what their latest bright ideas are. In fact, it demands some fresh blood, some fresh thinking, some fresh ideas! Thus we need to clean house in Washington DC. That's what the candidate contract is intended to do.
