Westminster Abbey to Give Thanks for Nuclear Weapons Last week I tweeted this: "The U.S. military wants to fly small nuclear power plants into wars in order to power the wars' weaponry. Because there was some chance we might not all die fast enough if nothing this stupid was tried." I linked to a report on this insane idea. Someone replied: "The Navy already does this."

The Resistance Takes a Stand for Keeping Trump in Office I'm old enough to remember when Nancy Pelosi was telling us that Trump would impeach himself. Now, Trump's "not worth it," as if impeachment is a favor you bestow on those most worthy. Jerrold Nadler is proposing to fine Trump for refusing to comply with subpoenas. Do you grasp the full meaning of that last one?

Savagery and Its Promoters and Profiteers Max Blumenthal's new book, "The Management of Savagery: How America's National Security State Fueled the Rise of Al Qaeda, ISIS, and Donald Trump," is over 300 pages and wastes not a word. It also does far more than it claims.

Testimony for the National Commission on Military, National, and Public Service I recommend that we actually find common ground to what little extent it exists with those who say that we should treasure women so much that we would never send them off to kill or die. Then we should work to expand that admirable outlook to include men too. Can't we treasure men that much?

If You Want to Be President, Show Us Your Budget No presidential candidate has now or within living memory ever produced a proposed federal budget, or ever been asked in any debate or interview, to even approximate give or take $100 billion what they'd like spent where, or even just whether militarism would be better at 70%, 60%, 50%, 40%, or 30% of federal discretionary spending.

Congress Should Begin Impeachment, But Not the Way You Think Back before Donald Trump was inaugurated, I wrote an article called "Fantasies About Russia Could Doom Opposition to Trump." Perhaps it is less quixotic, or perhaps it is more, to hope that, after more than two years of being barraged with those fantasies, but with their main focus having publicly flopped, more people will now be open to trying something else.

When the Irish Ambassador Talks About Independence in Charlottesville I very much hope someone will take the time to videotape themselves asking His Excellency how Ireland can be considered independent when the U.S. military uses Ireland's airports to fight U.S. wars, in gross violation of Ireland's legal commitment to neutrality and against the will of the people of Ireland.

How Not to Go to War If you saw a book in Barnes and Noble called "How Not to Go to War," wouldn't you assume it was a guide to the proper equipment every good warrior should have when they head off to do a little killing, or perhaps something like this U.S. news article on "How Not to Go to War Against ISIS" which is all about what law you should pretend authorizes a violation of the UN Charter and the Kellogg-Briand Pact?

UVA Finally Pays a Living Wage I think we can tentatively draw a few possible, and all of them encouraging, conclusions from the fact that the University of Virginia has announced a $15 per hour minimum wage for its direct employees.
