"Stress R Us"

Thanks to Thom for addressing, if in passing, human overpopulation during today's Free Speech TV program. Rarely does anyone in the media have the courage to do this. I'm a retired neuropsychiatrist and, now, arm-chair neuroscientist, who's written a free e-book PDF by the above title. Just Google the title. What I've discovered in my extensive literature searches fits with my 40 year experience in medical practice: population density stress is the basic cause of ALL human "diseases of civiization", none of which are fo

No, courage is not dead.

Clikck on this link if you doubt it. The world desperately needs more Bob Geldofs and many more people who hear them and then decide to DO something:

Inspection- On Being Too Cocky

 The Virginia and New Jersey victories were certainly welcome. But let's not get cocky: historically that has screwed us damn near every time. Election fraud makes this even worse because even if those who are who are cocky are right it throws a wild card into the mix: as in it becomes more a matter how successful they are which can only be countered by how vigilant we are. "Vigilant" rather than, well, "cocky."

Use US Foreign Policy to Create Cultural Shift About Women

To begin the major cultural shift about women with our foreign policy, let the US lead an effort to create greater appreciation and empowerment of women in Afghanistan by implementing a two-part financial incentive program.

TALK about SOCIALISM

TALK about SOCIALISM, American corporations the largest owned by the 1/10 of one percent of the population that own 90% of all the money, also get the American tax payer to cough almost a thousand billion dollars a year (trillion) to pay for a standing military to protect the wealthiest Americans worldwide business interests and they pass it off as protecting America and the Americans as usual unquestioningly compliant buy the whole fraud hook line and sinker.

Sanders, Zuckerberg, Biden; post-classical politics at the end of hysteria

The reason for this post is Biden's recent speech. It seems that the Democratic Party's main priority right now is quashing any kind of reconciliation with the more progressive wing as represented by Sanders. That being said, there are some memes out there falsely insinuating that Biden explicitly referred to Sanders. More egregious are the accusations of pedophilia flung around wantonly. This kind of thing is not consistent wtih Sanders' ethics.

I Want a President Who Will Say...

What I want is a President who will say,

(best if read in the voice of a throaty rancher, or Wilfred Brimley)

“OK, NRA, the numbers and the American people say that gun violence is a problem in our country. Those numbers simply must come down, and I don’t care how they do.

Has Corporate Speech silenced my own in Government?

The court decisions from "Bank of the United States v. Deveaux" in 1809 which started this whole corporations were citizens thing to "Citizens United v. FEC" in 2010 which expanded their reach; basically has drowned out our speech. The "Buckley v. Valeo" case in 1976 and the 8 or so other decisions inbetween 1809 to 2014; have in my opinion completely silenced our form of free speech when it comes to our government.

Are our voices drowning in the politcal ocean?

Growing up as a child in the 80's and 90's I was never concerned with the world of politics. My father was a Repulican, and my mother was a Democrat. Anytime politics were involved at the dinner conversation it was always interesting albeit my father was always the "victor" because he was dad. Only later in life did I realize how incredible my mother was in her victories for she never had to be acknowledged for her successes. They were just successes. Silent or outspokenly loud they were always taken with a great sense of humility, and appreciation.

Can Humanity Be Saved?
