Thom,

"It is now highly feasible to take care of everybody on Earth at a higher standard of living than any have ever known. It no longer has to be you or me. Selfishness is unnecessary." - Bucky Fuller

Two thirds of humanity dies of poverty related causes before the age of 40. But, the American Friends Service Committee has put together UN statistics showing that all the problems we have on Earth that have an estimated price tag (soil errosion, hunger, disease, education etc) can be solved with just 30% of global military spending. I've been pained to notice that you don't seem to agree. You seem to more or less write off the very poor and the Third World. I've been shocked by this. Please explain. Do you disagree with these assertions? What are your sources?

The Secret On TrumpCare Is Now Out


The Senate Republican healthcare bill is secret no more.

There's just one problem - it's not really a healthcare bill.

Don't let Mitch McConnell fool you.

Contrary to what you might have heard - Senate Republicans DID NOT unveil a healthcare bill yesterday.

They unveiled a tax cut for the rich DISGUISED as a healthcare bill.
