Kochs’ efforts to debunk Climate Collapse make them guilty of Crimes Against Humanity.

And this is not a sensational claim if you read the Hague’s definition of Crimes Against Humanity. Our political leadership needs to deal with their fear of the superrich to take the action needed – namely seizing their wealth for the Government and prosecuting David and Charles Koch to the fullest extent of ANY and ALL laws.

Climate action’s “free rider” problem.

If a country doesn’t take profound action to postpone climate collapse for as long as possible, then they don’t get our assistance. Which means the "free market" can go to hell, because if another country propells us into climate choas sooner rather than later, then the US stops food shipments, military assistance, financial aid, first aid, etc.

new age

The “Next America” about which Paul Taylor writes includes inter-generational reliance required in the face of diminishing resources, and apparently examines the roles of members of these extended ‘families’. Income/assets of workers are intended to provide an economic support for member ambitions/expectations (“upward mobility”), but the socio-economic objectives and motivations have changed. What social ‘advancement’ is merited and value-added ‘enrichment’ can be anticipated are seemingly askew. Attention getting is easier within echo chambers of “new n

Should the Democrats

Pick Chicago to host the upcoming Democratic convention in 2016? Well, they should. Hilary Clinton came from Park Ridge a suburb of Chicago and President Obama did go to University of Chicago and his wife was on the broad of the University's Medical Center or no because Mayor Emanuel has a member of the Koch Brother off spring Steve Koch in his cabinet now and while he was President Obama's chief of Staff and after all “those Koch's are the devil!”

Inspection-Of Political Correctness and the Word War

The year? Well, probably about 1996 because I was arguing with a former client about Bill Clinton. He had just "outed" me as politically incorrect: not a member of what eventually became the Tea Bag movement. It wasn't hard to avoid up with him until towards the end of our business relationship. Look: arguing with clients about politics, in my opinion, is bad form. Besides, all I had to do, and still do with many of these folks, is sit through the rants and, hopefully, find something I could safely comment on with not much more than a word or two: usually a very broad point like government isn't all that efficient.

WASHINGTON (CBS DC) -- A new White House petition has been launched calling for the state of Alaska to secede from the U.S. and rejoin Russia....The petition -- called "Alaska back To Russia" -- has nearly 30,000 signatures after being created March 21 by S.V. of Anchorage.

The petitioner does not explain or provide any reason why Alaska should rejoin Russia, but just states: "Vote for secession of Alaska from the United States and joining Russia."

The petition, which is strangely worded, describes how Alaska was settled and populated by native Russians.
