I cannot support Joe Lyin’, period…It does not matter who he picks, for his failing campaign.

Bernie Sanders is over…I don’t believe he will ever actually get anything done for us.

Bernie has shown himself to be to much of a player in the game…and the very fact that he can throw his support behind a guy, who’s currently being accused of rape?…

…I know…I know…

…Being who and what I am, I am naturally suspicious of rape accusations…as I know it is way to easy, to throw the word “rape” around in this culture…with total, reckless abandon…and little to no personal consequence for making false claims.

…Thing is…when you add this into all the other losing variables haunting Joe…and the very fact that he’s the establishment shill, in direct opposition to, essentially, everything Bernie supporters need and fight for…

…How could Bernie even imagine getting behind Joe?…This is total insanity…

After doing this a second time [the first with Hillary]…Bernie has destroyed his integrity.

I’m not turning on Bernie…nor blackballing mention of him here…

I still generally like Bernie…I hope he continues to be around for another decade or so, fighting for good policies…but, realistically…he is not going any higher in office, than he currently is…at best, he can hang onto his current seat for as long as he wants it, and is still in command of his mental faculties.

…It doesn’t make a whole lot of difference, putting Bernie into a VP position like this…We’d all still be selling out, getting behind Joe Lyin’.

The Solutions to the Climate Crisis No One is Talking About with Robert Reich…

01) The Solutions to the Climate Crisis No One is Talking About with Robert Reich


“Former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich explains why we must not go back to normal after this coronavirus crisis ends, and breaks down four key steps we must take to prevent total climate catastrophe.

First, create green jobs. Investing in renewable energy could create millions of family sustaining, union jobs and build the infrastructure we need for marginalized communities to access clean water and air.

Second, stop dirty energy. A massive investment in renewable energy jobs isn’t enough to combat the climate crisis. If we are going to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, we must tackle the problem at its source: Stop digging up and burning more oil, gas, and coal.

Third, kick fossil fuel companies out of our politics. For decades, companies like Exxon, Chevron, Shell, and BP have been polluting our democracy by pouring billions of dollars into our politics and bankrolling elected officials to enact policies that protect their profits. The oil and gas industry spent over $103 million on the 2016 federal elections alone.

Fourth, require the fossil fuel companies that have profited from environmental injustice to compensate the communities they’ve harmed.
As if buying off our democracy wasn’t enough, these corporations have also deliberately misled the public for years on the amount of damage their products have been causing.

If these solutions sound drastic to you, it’s because they are. They have to be if we have any hope of keeping our planet habitable. The climate crisis is not a far-off apocalyptic nightmare — it is our present day.”
