Case In Point: Dominionist Santorum Takes On The Pope

Dominionist Rick Santorum Flickr/creative commons

Dominionism is a cult based on a political philosophy that seeks to make the U.S. government a christian theocracy. It’s been a force in America since the first Puritans, and it’s succeeding in undermining our democracy, now more than ever. We can laugh at the exposure of the dominionist cult called Quivverful worshipped by the […]

Your fridge is ground zero, Part 2 of 2

by David McLean Flickr/creative commons

“Hunger, in your neighborhood or anywhere in the world, is a violation of human rights, and caused by inhumane politics. Corporations have a responsibility to get the excess food to those who need it, and we all have a responsibility to demand that they do.” (Your fridge is ground zero, Part 1 of 2, 4/24/15) Yesterday, […]

Love Your Earth

Pascal B. for technovore Flickr/creative commons

Earth Peace Listen to the sound of the earth turning (Yoko Ono, Earth Day, April 22, 2015) We’ve been promoting the hashtag, #EarthDayIsEveryDay because the impact on climate change is still grossly underestimated. It is one of our key issues because if we ruin our planet, our search for social and economic justice means little. […]

Net Neutrality: Stop Congress

Flickr/creative commons

Dan Massey and I were there at the birth of the Internet, Dan directly involved in the research and development that brought it about. Based on the work of Alan Turing and others, the Internet was an expensive, tax-payer-funded, labor intensive product for the military. By the late 70s, it became a utility available to the […]

Back To The Future

My blog break turned out to be a bit longer than it should have, sorry. But if you have been following the Twitter/venusplusx feed you know I’ve been very busy with activists everywhere as we see, finally, an energizing of the forces for good despite the pain of getting to our destination. And it is […]

Part 2: Take Heart, Evidence Pouring In Hourly

Flickr/creative commons

Yesterday, I revisited my pre-election theory that progressives and all non-Republicans will see the greater good of a Republican takeover of the Senate and their increased footprint in the House. And I promised to riff on a few memes to substantiate that soon after. (Part 1 here.) There’s nothing to fear since these election results are actually bringing […]

Take Heart, Evidence Pouring in Hourly (Part 1)

The far right believes they have a chance to remake the world into the christian, capitalist theocracy they have always wanted. Even liberal media says, “If they win this election cycle they will do things that would reverse history for 75 years!” But none of that’s going to happen. Just before the U.S. Election a week ago, I […]

Shamans Discover Special Interests

A primitive man who lived in a cave a long, long time ago once abstracted the idea that you can make a living, even a very good living as a shaman. He was largely self-appointed to intercede between and on behalf of other men and the existing natural resources. Most important, he consulted on what […]
