Predatory Delay

Clicking on a blank area, or on the time and date link in the Twitter link below (from the Twitter account of Alex Steffen) will show an entire thread of posts, introducing the notion of “Predatory delay”. This is the force we are facing now with our Climate Crisis. What Houston shows us, yet again, is that we live in a Continue Reading

The “Cultural Cancer” that has infested the American Church

This was just posted to the Facebook Page of “The Christian Left” For decades most “Christians” have lectured everyone around them telling them that to be a “Christian” you must be a Republican. They talk about everything that happens in culture and politics based on that belief, that right-wing ideology is the “Christian” ideology and everything else is evil, especially Continue Reading

No Is Not Enough: Lessons from the Financial Crisis and beyond

I am struck this morning, while reading Naomi Klein’s account of various uprisings in different countries being saddled with austerity/shock treatments, that our country may well have brought on the Trump phenomenon by basically missing the opportunity to self-correct ,or heed the voices crying out during the Occupy movement of 2011-2012.

The EPA does actually mark an acknowledgment of needed collaborative effort

I am incensed about the EPA appointment, NOT because the EPA, which has existed since December 2, 1970, has successfully PROTECTED us from wreaking havoc on the ecosystem. It obviously has not.

I feel that we in the People’s Climate movement, and those in the interfaith community should not be waiting for the Climate March on April 29 to act on our outrage that Pruitt has been confirmed; much less the corrupt , un-accountable, rushed nature of such a vote, pushed by that ultimate of “Patron Compromiser” , idiot “leaders”, Mitch McConnell.

Occupy the Pruitt EPA

Occupy the Pruitt-led EPA.  The head of National Security violates basic National Security protocol. He’s now gone. The appointed head of the Dept of Education is an opponent of public education. Now the EPA head is an opponent of Environmental Protection and an insane, science denying idiot with no scruples about enriching himself at the peril of what he is Continue Reading

The nationality of a Kingdom apart

Seeing a confederate flag in a picture, and reading of how “it’s not racist, but a symbol of ‘States Rights’”, I wonder what the symbol for “ecological destruction” rebranded as “Free market rights” would be. Capitalism? What’s the “flag”? Some might argue the stars and stripes itself. Then we’d be into the heart of the matter, I suppose. Where do Continue Reading
