A Declaration of Independence from Corporate America

A Declaration of the People of the United States of America, introduced this day July 4th, 2017

A dozen score and one year ago a group of brave individuals changed the course of history by championing a remarkable idea: that governments ought exist only to serve the needs and rights of the people they seek to govern, and if they do not achieve this objective the people themselves have the right not merely to seek redress, but to alter or abolish the government itself.


Bragging is sooo unCanadian so please excuse this very rare indulgence.

California issues for Single Payer Health Care

The problem with the Cal Legislature bill 562 doesn't have a funding mechanism for single payer health care. Any measure that raises taxes Must pass both the Assembly and Senate by 2/3 supermajority vote. Also SF Local Talk show Peter B Collins who has guest hosted on Thom's program in the past pointed out that in 1988 voters passed a Prop 98 Constitutional Amendment that mandates 40% Of All Taxes in the General Fund must go to schools. So any new tax measure for health care must deal with that law.

The myth of medical savings

Recently I underwent routine neck surgery that was supposed to require a single night in the hospital pre-op. Following the surgery I was sent home with instructions of proper care and restrictions. At approximately 2:00 am I began having trouble breathing, felt like drowning and went to the emergency room. Following examination I was once again prepped for emergency surgery, put to sleep and awoke aproximately a month later. I was kept in a medical coma to recover from the surgery.


Awe those pictures of Canada's pristine lakes and rivers, the vastness of our land , all that breathing space. SCREECH!! Lets get serious about our and Canada's future. ALL those forests are predicted to become tinder dry as climate change accelerates on our planet. Forest fires like that of Ft McMurray will become more frequent, fierce and uncontrollable. Those pristine rivers and lakes in Alberta are turning toxic from the tar sands extraction.

Inspection- Here Comes One Party Rule

The danger behind the The Nation's overdue article on the plan to end representative governance is not any mistake, or error... unless you include a lack of deeper analysis.

How Do We Take Back the Military From the Billionaire Owned Military Industrial Complex?

Thom plus logo Democrats (Bernie & Lee) in the senate proposed legislation saying what the Constitution already says: that Trump can't go to war with Iran without congressional authorization. Every Republican on the committee, except Rand Paul, voted against it.
