Save the planet. We've all been on notice since "Silent Spring" and have done little to head off disaster. Now we have a President who cares more about money than having a planet to live on. How sad it is when we have a President as an example to our children of what not to grow up to be.

We have to spawn real hope for the young - every day they witness growing problems with sustainability issues. In short it is time to breathe fresh hope in peace. We have to learn to CARE more again - together !

its is patently clear the US system is riddled with corruption - it is a farce to say it offers a democratic system. For too long the politicians have been a front for aiding vested interests. Inequality is rife as the "fat cats" indulge to excess!

Wasn't just Rome but also Greek, Egyptian,etc . Those, then, in power and with affluence practised debauchery, corruption, extreme human rights abuses, etc etc. They could do or command ANYTHING at a whim. They fell and WE ARE NOT IMMUNE! When a, relatively, small "elite" has more wealth than a number of countries we are in strife ! It's heading right our way  sooner than most think!

Inspired young people rising to the challenge of educating "dumb-ass" politicians ! This is exactly what is needed as these active young souls will inherit our legacy and our massive mistakes ! Never be daunted especially by idiots in high office !

Trump, the twerp, wants to stand and gush over "his military toys" and the troops (your sons and daughters) who will fight the wars HE WAS EXCUSED FROM ON HEALTH GROUNDS!! Then remember the "ghosts" - vets lost, maimed, wrecked  that he and his mates have forgotten - they are screwed! Trump wants a parade for puffery and SELF grandiosity. Deny him the chance !

It is said that "self praise is no recommendation" but in this statement Trump got it half right -many are, and were, idiots but the real sad part is more than a few are intent on remaining idiots! This includes the US womenfolk who support him after his filthy, foul-mouthed CONTINUING  behavior! He needs to be criminally charged!

This sort of treatment to the "downtrod" is totally unacceptable  especially in a society where MASSIVE tax cuts have been given to the mega-wealthy!

Kushner Under Fire for Receiving $30M From Israeli Firm While Shaping Middle East Policy | Common Dreams - Nepotism under Trump is rife ! That a World power has stooped to this level highlights a sordid system. All along, family and a proliferation of cronyism has been the style - and the US public allow this? This assumes proportions that are completely absurd and discredited.  In short, a democratic sham "unfit for purpose"!  Get it sorted or lose all credibility - it's a farce currently!

"Are you comfortable with having Jared Kushner be the beneficiary of huge amounts of Israeli financing at the same time he's overseeing U.S. foreign policy on Israel?"

"We must act together. And we must act strategically. 2018 is the year the people fight back like never before."

Whatever way everything evolves the public must acknowledge that confrontation in a nuclear age offers the potential to destroy the existence of ALL ! Bruised egos of  callous, self-indulgent, brainless "leaders"  is preferable to any holocaust devouring us all ! Any thought of utopia after a distinct expenditure of the joint over-supply of nuclear weapons has to be complete madness. !!!

The Mad Man Theory: Nixon, Trump and Bolton - CounterPunch.org

Early in Richard Nixon’s presidency, he told his chief of staff Bob Haldeman that his secret strategy for ending the Vietnam War was to threaten the use of nuclear weapons. Nixon opined that President Eisenhower’s nuclear threats in 1953 brought a quick end to the Korean War, and that he planned to use the same principle of threatening maximum force. Nixon called it the “madman theory,” getting the North Vietnamese to “believe…I might do anything to stop the war.” More

It's Time For Corporate America To Stand Up To Republican Climate Deniers "AND SO SAY ALL OF US"! Not much money to be made, after all, when all the liquidity is in the tight-fisted hands of the few!  This is where and when the "wake-up call" must start !  As more are destined to poverty and brutal serfdom there is not much solace for corporates there !  This is where the cudgels come-out  and people have to say it as it is !

While the Two Koreas Talk, Trump Is Throwing Shade | By Christine Ahn . That North Korea has been hostile, bullying and a rotten regime stomping over human rights is clear BUT the actions of the USA, especially as seen at the Winter Olympics were appalling! It only served to exacerbate the threat of a major war in which event watch "draft-dodger", cowardly, Trump first to seek cover down in the bunkers"! He prefers others to fight as his history shows!

While the Two Koreas Talk, Trump Is Throwing Shade

The White House seems hell bent on hijacking an Olympic moment of inter-Korean unity.
