Trump & GOP - Welcome To The End of The World...

Thom plus logo Donald Trump and the entire Republican Party are so committed to keeping their billionaire donors happy, particularly those who make their money from fossil fuels, that they are not only deny science but now they are wrecking it.

Trump's administration is responsible for producing the climate survey on which major governmental decisions are based. And, with regard to climate change, they are saying that they will not consider anything that's going to happen after 2040, which is when the most severe consequences, including mass extinctions, are set to begin.

In exchange for money, the GOP is literally welcoming the end of the world.

5. Don't step on worms.

6. Don't eat the entrails of aardvarks.

6. Mine the cheese on the Moon.

7. Comprehend Bell's Theorem.

8. Close your eyes.

9. Tap your heels three times.

10. And think to yourself: "There's no place like home; there's no place like home; there's no place like home..."

11. But whatever you do, do not heed the dire warnings of virtually every climate scientist on the planet or take any other meaningful action in the short time left for humanity to actually mitigate the unfathomably expensive and deadly effects of human-caused climate catastrophe our children and grandchildren -- and every other lifeform -- will certainly suffer.

12. Oh yeah, and vote for Trump ...because, you know, JESUS!

The Supreme Court Broke Politics - How Do We Now Reform the Supreme Court?

Thom plus logo We complain about the state of American politics; about a mentally ill billionaire in the White House and a Republican Party crawling with hustlers and conmen, and a few in the Democratic Party as well. The complaints are legitimate, but most people don't realize why the situation is as bad as it is.
