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 […]

Earth Overshoot Day is Earlier Than Last Year – That’s Normal, and That’s Bad

The Global Footprint Network has released this year’s calculation for Earth Overshoot Day.

On August 2nd, 2017, we will observe – not celebrate – Earth Overshoot Day.

Each year, Earth Overshoot Day is earlier than the previous one. Last year, it was on August 8th. This chart predicts the end of June in 2030.

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 […]

Whiny, Fascist Tattle-Tale Politician Assails a Citizen’s 1st Amendment Right

The letter that appears in this blog post, along with its post-script – an illegal post-script – ought to be filed under U.S. News, NOT Politics, due to its blatant breach of the oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution. It was sent by U.S. Representative Rodney Frelinghuysen, R-NJ, pleading to Lakeland Bank for donations. In […]

The GOP Refuses to Hear the People

Last night, I saw a video online that expresses a symptom of the decline of democracy.

It is disturbing on a level that I think most people will miss at first, because they will get caught up in the emotion of the individuals concerned, so I’m going to describe it, because this other, deeper, underlying […]

Populism is the Enemy – NOT Population Studies

Well, at last, after weeks on end of watching populism rear its hideous hydra of a head, a voice from the population scientists has been heard.

Bill Nye – the Science Guy – took on the question of reproduction in developed nations.

He said that, considering the fact that our resource use is far tougher […]

Meet Julia, the Muppet with Autism. Trump and the GOP Want to Defund Her.

Meet Julia, the Muppet with autism, who has just joined the cast of Sesame Street – she’s the redhead with the toy bunny. Neurotypical kids will learn how to interact with kids on the autism spectrum, and be taught to accept us.

Julia, the Muppet with autism, holding her toy bunny, debuts on PBS. […]

The Chinese Built a Wall. The Mongols Still Got In. Think About That.

I guess you just can’t fix stupid, thoughtless, or unreasonable.

Still, the urge to try is irresistible, and the need to educate remains.

Donald J. Trump wants to build a wall, charge up the cost for the materials, labor, and deaths on the job to the American people, and then bill the Mexicans for it. […]

For Those Who Wonder Why the GOP Politicians Are Doing This…

…it is because the GOP politicians just don’t care about ethics nor their oaths to serve their constituents. They are so embittered that liberals got to make the reforms that we wanted and so many of them and they have given up and decided to cheat, because that’s the only way that they will be […]

Orwellian Monsters – Human and Computer

Here it is: the Orwellian monster that is Cambridge Analytica.

Extra! Extra! Read all about it…

The Data That Turned the World Upside Down

It has a data-gathering practice called OCEAN, an acronym for openness, conscientiousness, extroversion, agreeableness, neuroticism. It analyzes all that data to see what sort of voter you are. This corporation is […]
