Longing for the Past Puts One on the Wrong Side of History.

Do you occasionally receive chain e-mails from friends and/or relatives?

We probably all do.

These can be fun, harmless missives full of images that make us laugh or educate us.

These can also be indicative of the sender’s political, religious, or other leanings.

I got one about 5 years ago that has been on my […]

Scott Pruitt is the Bear Guarding the EPA-Beehive – It’s a Blatant Conflict of Interest.

I wrote a book a few years ago about honeybee colony collapse that outlines the legal obstacles to applying scientific solutions to the problem, plus obstacles posed by wealthy and powerful corporations, which include the money that they throw at politicians and the lobbyists they hire to achieve this. The corporations inflict permanent damage on […]

A Show for Those of Us on the Autism Spectrum Rather Than for the Majority

Jim Parsons narrates the spinoff of The Big Bang Theory in Young Sheldon, playing, as usual, the adult version of the character. We never see him, and we are not meant to. That works, and I have been enjoying the show.

When I like a show, I do what I can to boost its ratings […]

Journalists Are Delighted to Disgust Bigots

Journalists are delighted when bigots are disgusted that they can present anything they wish to present.

They live to do that.

It is their mission in life.

It is their raison d’être.

Okay, you get the idea. I fun iterating it several ways.

Authoritarian bigots who disdain in-depth reporting backed up by sound research […]

Enjoy Saying “No”. Don’t Apologize. Resist the Haters.

We are in the middle of a resource war that is fueled in the United States by resentment, hateful behavior, and populism.

In other parts of the world, resource war involves all of that plus necessities such as living space, food, clothing, health care, education, and jobs.

There are areas of the Middle East where […]

Fight Attempts to Weaponize Freedom of Speech

Taking down statues that commemorate the Confederate past has served as the latest excuse for race and hate riots in the Untied States of America.

Heather Heyer, a white liberal woman, was run over by an Amerikkkan Nazi this weekend, and killed.

This is domestic terrorism, not an exercise of any right in the U.S. […]

It’s Earth Overshoot Day! And It’s Earlier Than Last Year, as Usual

Time to check the world population clock again.

Let’s see what it says…

http://www.worldometers.info/world-population/

We’re at 7,522,504,008 humans now.

Earth Overshoot Day comes earlier each year.

Earth Overshoot Day marks the point in the calendar at which our species as a whole has officially used up all of the resources – food, water, and […]

Say NO to Orwellian, Fascist Demand for Voter Data

A hollow, meaningless Independence Day is upon us.

Many of our rights are being attacked – rights that I, for one, am not willing to part with.

The right to voter privacy is one of them.

Trump, in his endless quest to stroke his own weak ego, wants our voter data.

He hopes that, if […]

The GOP Agenda is Hateful, But the Rose Garden is Beautiful

Today is the Summer Solstice.

It’s a time to enjoy the longest day of the year and smell the roses.

It’s a day when one is meant to be happy.

Happy Summer Solstice!

Well…not so happy.

The GOP keeps getting its way with elections and its politicians keep breaking their oaths to uphold […]

Disgracing the Nation

We had a nice vacation with Trump – the #Pumpkingropenfuhrer – out of the country.

Now he’s back, damn it.

We have a vacuous celebrity of a Thief-in-Chief who leaves you-name-it to his crooked son-in-law to study up on, handle, and otherwise deal with anything and everything that comes up.

Trump is a guy with […]
