All these old geezers sitting around each morning on the luxury of their seniors pensions , which the Liberal Democratic Party gave them through legislation in the 1930's , opposed I might add by the conservative party. ALL you old selfish shortsighted seniors couldn't give a damn about the world of the future, because of course in 20 years or less you'll all be dead.
The Alberta Tar Sands will contribute to the mass murder of 7000 million people here on earth. James Hansen, the director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies says that if Canada pursues its plan extracting this oil, and does it to the last drop, we’ll be polluting our environment with more carbon dioxide than ever before, with levels outrunning those from 2.5 million years ago, when the sea had been at least 50 feet higher than it is now. That’s that, but let’s also count the increasing desert area, higher food prices, poverty, starvation etc.
When will the rest of the cops who were present at the McDonald murder be fired for dereliction of duty, as they stood passively witnessing the murder and failed to protect the victim?
It rained the night before last here, and there might be more on the way today for Thanksgiving. I am always happy to have our water supply replenished, and water falling naturally in the yard (obviating the need to water the yard for the time being), but especially in this time of drought here in California. Okay, so The Weather Channel newsite says it was only 0.03 inches; that's better than nothing and it seemed more like 0.10 inch here. We always seem to get more rain here on the side of "Gorjilina mountain" (which is what I call it, after our faithful older cat).
And the way they do it is in fact illegal. One example is as follows:
“In Mexico, Chile and Turkey, where Laureate operates, for-profit universities are actually illegal. Laureate has put money into a struggling nonprofit school, getting positions on the board, then getting the school to hire Laureate for a variety of “services” including computer-advisory services and English courses. Laureate has also received funds for the use of its trademark.”
We need to stop hunting water fowl. We are in a mass extinction that is proving worse than the asteroidal impact that nailed the dinosaurs. What’s more, we’ve already reached + 1 degree Celsius and any further warming will be catastrophic. My god, we ‘ve gotta change!!
I think I found the campaign song for Donald Trump. It embodies his strengths, his hopes, his deepest beliefs.
Much has been said recently, in response to the war on drugs, about how the U.S. has wrongfully attached too much significance to Objective Knowledge and that Nixon's quest for sobriety has taken a great toll on our well-being, prosperity and ethics. I wonder if this is actually true or maybe we have it wrong in a somewhat subtler way.
Washington has been partnering with Walton family billionaires to block Walmart Workers attempts to increase wages.
Government is for the Rich.
The yearly equivalent of all the water used by 6 million people in the greater Toronto area is consumed in the extraction process of the tar sands. Over time billions of gallons of pure fresh water will be turned into an unrecoverable toxic sludge by tar sands extraction process, water poisoned for an eternity with over a 100 chemicals , including mercury , arsenic and lead.
