It's getting to be a broken record re XL Pipeline. I cannot seem to convince my blue dog dem Congressman that tar sands oil and this pipeline is a bad thing. He can't see past the few jobs in my state that it will, or has created. He is for alternative green energy as well, but I think he voted to keep subsidies with big oil vs spreading some of it to emerging technologies re renewable energies.

I want to step back a little from the constant strum of the latest Trump scandal to the most recent outrage, the Trump constantly popping into the news literally every day. I don't remember this during the Obama administration or any other presidency frankly of my lifetime.

Every day they look for some way to get in the news even if it's negative.

From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:

From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
