Universal Single-Payer Health Care: We need it NOW more than ever!

October 5, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

We Need Universal Single-Payer Health Care Now! The September 2020 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” examines our nation’s persistent failure to provide health care for everybody, persistent failure to control costs, and chronic injustices in paying the bills.  The U.S. spends twice as much per capita than other nations do, but many millions of Americans have no health care at all, and Americans’ health outcomes are worse than other nations. Two knowledgeable guests explain the problems in clear, understandable ways – and they propose a smart, cost-effective way to cover everybody with high quality health care at lower cost than […]

Recent actions by Trump & Republicans validate what I wrote and posted here about their mania to PREVENT government from functioning well.

August 31, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

In 2017 I wrote a thorough essay explaining that Trump, the Republican Party, big business, and other conservatives are hell-bent to PREVENT the government from solving problems.  Their whole “worldview” supports their mania to enable their elites (whites, rich people, big business, “patriotic” Americans, etc.) DOMINATE EVERYBODY ELSE. Although decent people want fairness and justice throughout our society and in the economy, and fairness and peace in our nation’s dealing with other nations, Trump, Republicans, etc., reject that and are RADICALLY DESTROYING humane governmental, social and economic policies in order to enable rich, racist, cruel people to PREVENT the government […]

More evidence of Trump’s HORRIBLE INCOMPETENCE AND MISMANAGEMENT of the pandemic

August 4, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Trump’s mismanagement of COVID-19 led to more than one million new cases in 15 days in late July 2020.  SEE THIS: https://www.pfaw.org/blog-posts/falsehoods-and-failures-trump-during-covid-19-july-24?utm_medium=email&utm_source=nl&utm_campaign=july2020   MOST of the Americans who died in the pandemic died BECAUSE OF TRUMP.  See www.TrumpDeathClock.com A competent estimate in July 2020 was that 87,655 Americans died from COVID-19 because of Trump’s failure to act effectively. Also, see this:  In January 2020, the Trump administration was advised that immediate action was required to stop the spread of COVID-19. According to NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci, “there was a lot of pushback” to this advice. President Trump declined to act until March […]

Call COVID-19 the “TrumpVirus” because his incompetence and cruelty made U.S. #1 in infections and deaths.

August 4, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Trump refuses to take responsibility for any of his many horrible decisions and failures.  He blames the Coronavirus on Chinese people, Democratic governors, the news media, and so forth, but he refuses to admit that Trump’s own stupidity, ego, incompetence, mismanagement made the crisis much, much worse than it would have been if we had a competent president. When he took power in January 2017 the Executive Branch agencies included two offices that were responsible for watching out for pandemics and planning in advance how to effectively manage pandemics in case they emerge.  Trump ABOLISHED those, so he PREVENTED our […]

Trump repeatedly, incompetently ignored warnings about COVID-19

July 26, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Here is a list of almost three dozen warnings Trump ignored about the coming pandemic: The June-July 2020 issue of The Progressive magazine (www.progressive.org) listed this sequence of almost three dozen warnings that Trump received that the Coronavirus crisis was coming, but Trump stupidly, incompetently, negligently refused to heed any of these warnings.  For more than three years (from January 2017 to May 2020) Trump should have paid attention and taken actions to protect our nation, but instead he denied and belittled the problem, and he allowed the pandemic to make the U.S. the very worst nation in the world […]

If you think Coronavirus is disruptive and deadly, it is NOTHING compared to nuclear war!

July 5, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Nuclear weapons are an EXTREMELY SERIOUS problem, but the public and news media pay almost no attention to the danger — which could DESTROY THE WORLD in just a few minutes! People are paying attention to the Coronavirus pandemic, so let’s pivot from that to consider how disruptive and deadly a nuclear war would be. The Coronavirus pandemic is seriously disrupting our world. Trump escalated the disruptions and increased the deaths by denying the reality, preventing the government from planning for pandemics, and suppressing the knowledge of scientists and doctors. A nuclear war would be much more disruptive and cause […]

Trump’s re-election goal is to keep the pandemic danger high and prevent voting by mail. Then sensible people STAY HOME and his loyal cult followers will turn out and vote.

June 30, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Put these few facts together: Democratic candidates are more likely to win when large numbers of people vote. In a number of states ruled by Republicans, those states do several things to reduce voter turnout — and to make it hard for racial minorities, young people, and poor people to vote, because those people tend to vote for Democrats. Voting by mail significantly increases voter turnout.  Trump and Republicans strongly oppose this, because they want to SUPPRESS voter turnout. The Coronavirus pandemic makes it dangerous to vote in person (in the 45 states that do not have voting by mail). […]

Trump, Republicans and conservatives keep making the pandemic WORSE AND WORSE!

June 28, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Republicans are NOT “pro-life.”  They keep sacrificing people’s lives to the Coronavirus pandemic in order to help businesses produce and sell. Trump, Republicans and conservatives show horrible negativity and denialism against the honest science that we need in order to save our lives. Here are just a few examples from late June 2020: This article explains the late June 2020 surge in new Coronavirus cases: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/the-us-s-new-surge-in-coronavirus-cases-explained/ar-BB162ob2?ocid=spartan-ntp-feeds   Trump’s crazy psychology: Zero empathy for victims.

Military weapons could NOT save us from Coronavirus! We must REDUCE weaponry and care for people instead!

June 21, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

If your only tool is a hammer, you will treat every problem as if it were a nail. The U.S. is SO HEAVILY MILITARIZED that our REAL SECURITY is SUFFERING!!! Congress keeps wasting our tax dollars on military weapons that DID NOT PROTECT US from Coronavirus. Trump eliminated two federal offices that had been planning to deal with pandemics because he wanted to spend that money on militarism. Read this one-page article that I wrote a few days ago: Military weapons could not save us from Coronavirus Ordinary people need to organize a powerful grassroots movement to SLASH the Pentagon […]

Trump’s seriously dysfunctional psychology keeps getting worse — with VERY DANGEROUS implications.

June 16, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

I keep seeing more and more information about Trump’s serious psychological problems.  Trump’s bizarre, reckless, hate-filled rhetoric and behavior are alarming — and DANGEROUS for our nation and for the world.  Also, many psychologists and psychologists keep writing and speaking about his psychological disabilities and dangers. He is absolutely obsessed with bragging about himself and what an excellent job he is doing as President.  He said his performance regarding Coronavirus would rate 10 on a 10-point scale.  Even when he is supposed to be honoring somebody else, he exploits that occasion and focuses largely on praising himself.  He wasted taxpayers’ […]

Trump’s WAR AGAINST HONEST SCIENCE is hurting our health — and hurting planet earth

Trump and Republicans are hell-bent to PREVENT government from solving problems!

Our nation, our people, our environment, our health — EVERYTHING — is suffering under the weight of a HUGE NUMBER OF PROBLEMS! But Trump and the Republicans are HELL-BENT TO PREVENT GOVERNMENT FROM SOLVING the problems! A while ago I wrote a thorough article that examines and criticizes the worldview of the conservatives that has been hurting us in many ways.  The article is long but full of insights.  I encourage people to read it here:  This Currently Dominant Worldview Hurts Us in Many Ways — and PREVENTS Governments from Solving Problems The Coronavirus pandemic, massive unemployment, racial injustices, police […]
