FEW JOBS WERE ADDED IN 2017

OVER THE LAST SEVEN YEARS 2017 HAD THE SMALLEST INCREASE IN JOBS

ACCORDING TO BLS DATA ......WHY DO I NOT HEAR ABOUT THIS IN THE MEDIA?

Why the illusion of separation from each other could cause the Whole to Collapse

Humans feeling of separation from each other allows them to do all manner of things to each other that they would never do to themselves .By failing to see that they are doing these things to themselves ,we produce and reproduce unwelcome results in our daily lives and in our collective planetary experience .

Citizens United Vs. The Constitution

Article II Section 4 of the Constitution states that Bribery is a reason for impeachment and removal from office for all Civial Officers of the United States

The Supreme Court of the United States in "Citizens United" found that corporations could give/donate unlimited funds to the campaign funds of members of congress.

A few blaring inequities associated with Social Security

Historically, state & federal government “income” taxes have been, ultimately, used for projects and causes associated with “the commons”. And, often, higher wage earners, business owners, corporations, etc. have paid more, in total, to them.

Each state is a sovereign nation state unto itself, as well as a direct democracy

Each American state is a sovereign nation-state unto Itself by law. They ratified the Constitution in their capacity as such, while also doing so with each state being a direct democracy. The phrase "we the people of the United States", refers to each state respectively, each by the will of its respective voters. In doing so, the voters in each state overruled their government to elect State ratification conventions, but they did not authorize these conventions to unite their respective nation-states together as a single nation state callled "the United States of America."

Left and Right missing the fundamental issues at stake in the "cannabis" debate

One of the most critical issues of our time is an issue 'the people' have been diverted into tragically misunderstanding to be about the 'cannabis' plant, when in fact it's about the very foundation of who and what you are as a life form on this planet and your naturally endowed rights to defend and sustain your life as such.

Proposal for Federal Financing of Campaigns

Donald Trumps AMERICA FIRST

Trumps AMERICA FIRST , the US is 30th in the world in life expectancy. Canada is 12 th in the world in life expectancy. en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_life_expectancy

Thom - There is nothing in the Constitution that prevents convicting and jailing a sitting President

The media makes this assumption all the time, but the reality is that there is nothing that prevents indicting, trying, convicting, and even (in the case of treason) executing a sitting President or any other elected official. One of the most basic principles of this country is that no one is above the law. That includes Presidents. Admittedly, finding an unbiased jury would be incredibly difficult, but the fact that something is impractical does not mean it cannot legally be done.

Thanks.

Where were the Caucus Room Conspiracy comments during the shut-down?

Actually, the title says it all. Has anyone seen any mention of the CRC during the government shut-down. I blogged and called Sherrod Brown about it and just sent out an email querry on the subject to my entire mailing list. kww

the SILENCE is DEAFENING

Tuesday January 23, 2018Why more people aren't talking about the Asian oil spill as big as Paris.

It's an oil spill the size of Paris. But only now is the world's attention catching up with the vast scale of the disaster in the East China Sea — the largest tanker spill in decades.

Despicable Inequality

This gross, despicable inequality is the problem, worldwide. No number of pink cap protests, valid as they may be, will alone address or relieve this horror. Protests must be universal, must include and welcome – urge - ALL the 99 percent to join in active, boisterous dissent. Protestors should demand, as starters, a vigorous wealth tax and a near 100 percent inheritance tax. Anything less is whistling in the wind. Where the hell are the leaders?
