It’s happening again
On a recent newspaper front page, we were assaulted by a story covering a white supremacists rally, along with counter protests, at Stone Mountain,GA. There are stories about who can use which bathroom, which flag will fly, and non-stop coverage of a racist running for the Republican nomination. I see over coverage of the reality tv star, formally known as Bruce Jenner.
Whether those of us who are of an age to remember rotary phones want to acknowledge it or not, we are currently in an era of social media politics. The vast majority of Americans now derive their political inclinations from what they see, and read on the web. A tragic side effect of easy information is that binary thinking, and sociological affirmation via Facebook memes have become the new norm.
US News and World Report: We have given the Oceans a death sentence to be carried out in “just a decade or so.”
Remember that when you vote for fracking Hillary (but hey! She and Obama got rich off it so what the hell)
Longtime Hillary insider proffers narrative on how Hillary might shirk her obligation to reform Wall St

"Sanders fares much better than Hillary Clinton in matchups with Trump and other Republican White House hopefuls". Do Democrats risk losing the White House with a weaker electable candidate?
I wonder whether those participating in the "I'm pissed off" so I won't vote for Hillary meme have any idea what they are actually suggesting? If a Republican gets into the White House in 2017, they will have the coat-tails to hold the Senate and House. That means:
One - The Supreme Court is lost for at least a generation, if not forever.
Two - Stopping Global Climate Change by phasing out the carbon economy? They don't even believe its real. (thanks to zapdam for pointing out I forgot to include this)
The 1950's and 60's seen the greatest growth in middle class incomes and numbers in the history of the world.
Canada is doing just fine, thank you. Don't blame Lincoln. If Washington had lost the revolution we'd be part of Greater Canada & slavery would have been wiped out much sooner. Curses to general Washington. Hail to the Queen.
It is clear now, that in his last days in office Obama has dropped all pretense of ever having worked for Working Class Americans. We don’t need more concentration, or rather “transfers” of wealth via trade deals.
This from Greenpeace:
An out-of-control tuna industry is killing sharks and devastating our oceans.
What’s worse? Some of the most destructive tuna ends up on the shelves at your local Walmart.
