In my run for U.S. Senate against Utah's Orrin Hatch, I posted many progressive ideas and principles that I internalized over the years. I'm leaving that site up indefinitely, since it describes what I believe most members of our species truly want: www.voteutah.us. I thank those who sent such wonderful comments, even though it forced me to go buy a few larger hats, which were among my top campaign expenses (just kidding). My forever-to-write novel (now my favorite book for some unfathomable reason), A Summer with Freeman, finally got out the door, via Kindle and CreateSpace. Readers of this site, and anyone else with two or more brain cells who want some "serious humorous relief" may want to check it out: http://www.opednews.com/articles/A-Summer-with-Freeman-nov-by-Daniel-Geery-130528-385.html My family and I lived off the grid in an earth-sheltered, solar powered underground house for 15 years, starting in the early '80s, proving, at least to myself, the feasibility of solar power. Such a feat would be much infinitely easier with off-the-shelf materials available now, though the bureaucracy holding us back is probably worse. http://www.opednews.com/articles/Living-on-Sunshine-Underg-by-Daniel-Geery-110318-547.html I wrote a book on earth-sheltered solar greenhouses that has many good ideas, but should be condensed from 400 down to 50 pages, with new info from living off the grid. It's on my "to do" list, but you can find used copies kicking around online. Just don't get the one I see for $250, being hawked by some capitalist... well, some capitalist. I'm 68 with what is now a 26 year old heart--literally, as it was transplanted in 2005 (a virus, they think). This is why I strongly encourage you and everyone else to be an organ donor--and get a heart transplant if you're over 50, unless your name is Dick Cheney. I may be the only tenured teacher you'll meet who got fired with a perfect teaching record. I spent seven years in court fighting that, only to find out that little guys always lose (http://www.opednews.com/articles/Letter-to-NEA-Leadership--by-Daniel-Geery-101027-833.html; recommended reading if you happen to be a parent, teacher, or concerned citizen). I managed to get another teaching job, working in a multi-cultural elementary school for ten years (we had well over 20 native tongues when I left, proving to me that we don't need war to get along--no one even got killed there!). http://www.opednews.com/articles/opedne_daniel_g_060716_alternatives_to_exti.htm I spent a few thousand hours working on upward-gliding airships, after reading The Deltoid Pumpkin Seed by John McPhee. But I did my modelling in the water, so it took only two years and 5,000 models to get a shape that worked. You can Google "aquaglider" to learn more about these. As far as I know, this invention represents the first alteration of Archimedes'principle, spelled out 2,500 years ago. "Airside," the water toys evolved into more of a cigar shape, as this was easier to engineer. Also, solar panels now come as thin as half a manila folder, making it possible for airships to be solar powered. You can see one of the four I made in action by Googling "hyperblimp"(along with many related, advanced versions). Along with others, I was honored to receive a Charles Lindbergh Foundation Award, to use my airships to study right whales off Argentina. Now we just have to make it happen and are long overdue, for reasons that would probably not fit on the internet. In 2010 I married a beautiful woman who is an excellent writer and editor, in addition to being a gourmet cook, gardener, kind, gentle, warm, funny, spiritual, and extremely loving. We met via "Plenty-of-Fish" and a number of seemingly cosmic connections. Christine wrote Heart Full of Hope, which many readers have raved about, as you may note on Amazon. I get blitzed reading the news damn near every day, and wonder why I do it, especially when it's the same old sh*t recycled, just more of it. In spite of Barbara Ehrenreich and reality, I'm a sucker for positive thinking and have read many books on it. I find many many of them insane and the source of much negativity on my part. My favorites these days are by Alan Cohen, who seems to speak my language, and likewise thinks a bit like Albert Einstein did (as do I on this note). Albert: "Try and penetrate with our limited means the secrets of nature and you will find that, behind all the discernible laws and connections, there remains something subtle, intangible and inexplicable. Veneration for this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion. To that extent, in fact, I am religious." Though I rapidly note that I've kept alive my deceased and "devout atheist" friend's book, http://www.opednews.com/articles/The-Foundation-of-Religion-by-Daniel-Geery-110510-382.html Lastly, kudos to Rob Kall and those who make OEN the site that it is: one of the last bastions of free speech.

Candidate Dr. Jill Stein: America's Multi-Organ Failure Part of the way the U.S. Empire's elections are rigged is the corporate media's censorship of third-party candidates, despite their nationwide campaign efforts.The Green Party, running Dr. Jill Stein for President, has been totally ignored by the establishment. Abby Martin sits down with Dr. Stein to look at how her career in medicine helped her diagnose America's "multi-organ failure,"

The More the Establishment Attacks a Candidate, or Hides One, the more you know... After Tulsi exposed the soul and sickness of Kamala Harris for the world to see, the more the Oligarchs have gone insane, both trying to smear and bury Tulsi, and eradicate Kamala Harris' record. I consider these kinds of reactions among the best indicator of who to vote for or not vote for. Want some evidence of how a record is buried? Graham Elwood explains well in 10 minutes.

Base of Our Food Chain Largely Gone I have long been reading and learning about extinctions, "little ones" such as the Furbish lousewort, to the grander extinctions that have punctuated evolution on Earth--such as the one that led to the demise of the dinosaur and the rise of mammals and Homo sapiens (five or more of which the genus Homo kicked off some time ago, many of them being here far longer than our self-named "wise selves" so far).

Quite Possibly a Greater and More Imminent Danger than WW3 I've been aware of climate change since 1977, when reading Energy for Survival: An alternative to extinction. Then kicked in the head again in 1997, in an article in Orion Magazine, which made six predictions that have all since come true, with a vengeance. And of course again in the past two decades or so, when we read about this in the headlines (as freak storms, etc.).

Removing a Third of Earth's Lungs (with many thanks to the CIA!) Looks like Brazil is in deep sh*t--and so is the rest of the planet, with this news alone (!). Something like a third of the Amazon will be farmed, paved, or "sold" for whatever, meaning dissecting and trashing what has been called "the lungs of the planet."

Why Tulsi for President? She explains it well in this short video. Here is but one example of Tulsi Gabbard giving a relatively short talk and responding to questions, in Des Moine Iowa.She has not just the credibility, given her background, but also the poise, stamina, what I'd call mass appeal, and intimate knowledge on the tip of her tongue, about what's going on around us and to us. With her central plank of running the military intelligently and sparingly resonates well with me.

Anyone doubting that climate change can be reversed has simply got their head in the sand.Like so many biologists and climatologists, minus a relative handful, even the brightest among them has great trouble concluding with four simple but incredibly obvious words...

Bulldozing the Garden We are living in a madhouse of our own creation, a full-blown insane asylum, a loony bin of global proportions. We are ravishing the earth, sucking its resources dry, destroying the very support systems that all life on the planet depends on. What can be done to stop bulldozing the Garden of Earth?

Is George Bush Insane? Today's lesson is about how to recognize one particularly insane individual. I feel the need to write this because there are still a number of people who have not recognized that this individual is insane-and by that word, I mean wholly detached from the world around him, and thus exceedingly dangerous given the power at his disposal.

Assange Exposes Democrat Fascists, Torturers & Warmongers Jimmy Dore further exposes the inmates who have taken over the insane asylum we are living in. To those who voted for Hillary Clinton, I'd call this a must watch, since you brought us Trump. But that is just the tip of the iceberg. To anyone still supporting Bernie, this is equally important.

The End-of-Scene Era These are a few "compelling examples" of biosphere collapse, from February-March, 2019. The scenes speak all too well for themselves.

No one has a clue as to what to actually do.

CrossTalk on Tulsi Gabbard and more... Peter Lavelle calls himself "a conservative," I would call him a knowledgeable, fact based commentator. I watch a great many of his shows. Here is discussing a few topics with guests from different places and perspectives, as he always has on his program, covering a number of topics, all interesting. It is the section on Tulsi Gabbard that prompted this post.

To collapse or to continue? No more helium-- a sign of global warming? Do we have the brains and the will to avert the disasters coming our way? A harbinger of events to come bears a message.

For Sander's Advocates in Utah What a great showing at our Grassroots meeting on Saturday! A lot of energy in the room as we prepared for Neighborhood Caucuses on March 22 at 7:00 pm (your only chance to vote in the 2016 Democratic Presidential primary). We also heard from our Democratic candidates for County Council At-Large B and mapped our plan for 2016. Needed: Pulling hiding Dems out of hiding.
