1300+ Mini-Chernobyls in the US Alone The HBO mini-series on Chernobyl is a true horror story. It shows bureaucratic lying, incompetence, cowardice and idiocy, with decisions that cause the deaths of many thousands. But there are over 1300 highly contaminated superfund sites. They are not as bad as Chernobyl or Fukushima, but they are bad & the may have killed or are killing people. What we can learn from HBO's Chernobyl mini-series is how bad these sites can be

Mueller Statement Makes it Clear. Tell Your Cong. Rep: Time to Impeach Essential words from the report: "If we had confidence the president clearly did not commit a crime we would have said so." "Charging the president with a crime was not an option we could consider." "Constitution requires a process other than the criminal justice system to formally accuse the president." It is time to open impeachment hearings.

My First Book Signing for Bottom-up Revolution I did my first book signing on Sunday, May 26th, at Barnes & Noble, Willow Grove. It's an exciting part of becoming an author. But I wasn't sure when I was on the way. After all, it was scheduled on Memorial day weekend and I was kind of bummed.

Bernie Sander's Credit Card Interest Cap is a Direct Attack On Biden's Benefactors Bernie Sander's cap on credit card interest is a brilliant direct attack on Joe Biden's biggest benefactors-- the credit card banks. He's calling the banks loan sharks. How do you think Joe will respond? This will be interesting.

Don't Believe. Question The Positive US Economic News. Use Trump's Lying There are excellent reasons to consider the likelihood that the reports of great economic news are not true-- that they are either direct lies or based on misleading use of statistics. This is how honest news reporters and analysts should be responding to the glowing claims coming out of the Trump government.

Bernie Says Terrorists Should be Allowed to Vote. Is He Right This is a law that ends up being highly racist and discriminatory. It should be a federal law that every US citizen has a right to vote. Think of it like you think of freedom of speech-- another constitutionally guaranteed right. A true defender of the constitution will defend bigots and haters rights to free speech. The same should be true for the right to vote.

Jail Them For Contempt of Congress There is a growing list of Trump appointees and administration people who are refusing to subpoenas to appear before congress. Trump is stonewalling and saying there will be no cooperation. It is time to show Trump and the American people that the Democrats were elected to control the House for a reason, and that they are going to do their job.

Impeachment Is Not Just About the Conviction. There are Different Fruits Impeachment is not just about the trial and conviction in the senate, far from it. There are different fruits to be harvested. There are many politicians and pundits who are only focusing on the idea that impeachment in the house is only meaningful if the senate finishes the job and removes Trump. That's just so wrong.

Aggressive House Trump Investigation Only Morally Effective Option The Mueller report and other investigations raise accusations and questions that the House must address. Since a complicit Republican leadership in the Senate will block most legislation coming out of the House, and Trump will veto most legislation the House produces that the Senate supports, the investigation of Trump is probably the most effective, historically significant and morally effective thing doable

Time Magazine's Archaic, Misguided Top-Down "100 Most Influential People" Time has released another list-- the Time 100 most influential people, 2019. The problem is, the way they create the list is extremely top-down, pretty much the opposite of the way influence and power has been flowing for the last 20 years or more.
