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’ […]

Locally and nationwide, we must CHANGE THE POLITICAL CULTURE. Sign up for these practical workshops.

June 15, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Governments are the LAST to figure things out. (Mainstream news media are the next-to-last.) They will do what we want ONLY WHEN a strong nonviolent grassroots movement forces them to do what is needed. Recent history has proved this a number of times. (In the 1960s Congress passed civil rights legislation only because the Civil Rights Movement forced them to. President Obama opposed LGBTQ rights to marriage until the grassroots movement forced him to support equal rights. The list goes on and on.) Our local community includes a number of people who want to protect the environment – and protect […]

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

June 12, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

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 […]

A Muslim woman replied cleverly to a man’s anti-Muslim tweet

May 13, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Recently a man sent this anti-Muslim tweet: You think COVID-19 is bad?  Give me a break.  Wait until Mislims hit critical mass in America.  You’ll look back on these times fondly.   A Muslim woman replied with this tweet: Sweetie everyone’s already washing their hands five+ times a day, covering their face, not shaking hands + avoiding bars.  Not only are we already here, you’re all Muslim.  Salam brother.        

PART 2 of “Choose a Better Worldview to Build a Better World”

The December 2018 episode of “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV program is PART 2 (following up on the November episode) of the topic, “Choose a Better Worldview to Build a Better World.”  The November program focused especially on problems with worldview that has been dominating the U.S., and the December program focuses more on solutions and how to achieve them. Cable TV subscribers in Thurston County WA can watch the December program on TCTV channel 22 three times a week all month long:  every Monday at 1:30 pm, every Wednesday at 5:00 pm, and every Thursday at 9:00 pm.

Trump is mismanaging the Coronavirus pandemic in several ways

February 27, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Trump says Coronavirus will end soon by itself (just like he says the climate hoax is only a temporary blip from which temperatures will soon return to normal all by themselves). Trump and the Republicans have been VIGOROUSLY trying to take away people’s health care. “How Can the US Confront Coronavirus With 28 Million People Uninsured?”  That’s the headline of this article:  https://truthout.org/articles/how-can-the-us-confront-coronavirus-with-28-million-people-uninsured/?eType=EmailBlastContent&eId=15b13ca9-b4b1-4b7e-8943-c7940ab56757 Also, Trump’s decision to put Pence in charge of Coronavirus is utterly stupid and wrong.  See this:  https://a.msn.com/r/2/BB10tK6y?m=en-us&referrerID=InAppShare   I have found informative, science-based, understandable videos about the Coronavirus at www.peakprosperity.com.  There’s other stuff on that website too, but […]

U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar Has a Plan to Revolutionize U.S. Foreign Policy

February 27, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Ever since the 1940s, the U.S.’s foreign policy has been overwhelmingly bi-partisan.  Regardless of which party is running the Executive Branch or the Congress, the U.S. has promoted a U.S. empire that has dominated much of the world politically, economically and militarily. Dick Cheney’s horribly stupid and cruel Endless War on Terrorism persisted through 8 years of George W. Bush’s presidency — and through 8 more years of Obama.  Obama actually ESCALATED some aspects of the Bush-Cheney abuses!  Obama escalated the drone wars, deployed military “Special Forces” to parts of Africa, radically increased the deportation of Latin American immigrants, and […]

This TV program and the transcript start by confronting the serious problems in our […]

Obama was far too timid for 8 years. His “centrism” hurt the USA and helped to elect Trump.

January 26, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

The Democratic Party keeps glorifying Barack Obama and claiming he had a terrific legacy. Actually, Obama governed like a “CENTRIST” REPUBLICAN!  He kept caving in to Republicans.  He failed to take positive actions within his power.  Instead, he promoted War and Wall Street.  Obama was a grossly inadequate president!   When Obama took office in January 2009, Democrats had majorities in both the House and the Senate. He could have done a lot if he had wanted to. The massive support from labor unions and non-profit organizations got him elected. They had some hot priorities. But Obama and the Democrats running […]

THESE should be Articles of Impeachment to remove Trump!

December 29, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

Trump has committed MANY, MANY violations of the Constitution and MANY, MANY violations of federal law. But the House Democrats have given him a FREE RIDE — negligently EXONERATED him — for NEARLY ALL of those violations, which REALLY ARE IMPEACHABLE OFFENSES! THESE ITEMS IDENTIFY SOME TRULY IMPEACHABLE OFFENSES.  The House should create Articles of Impeachment for these:   Ted Rall, who — besides being a skilled cartoonist — is also a savvy political analyst, urges these impeachable offenses:   https://www.opednews.com/articles/The-Articles-of-Impeachmen-by-Ted-Rall-Articles-Of-Impeachment_Bipartisan_Conviction_Senate-191228-892.html   Paul Blumenthal urged impeaching Trump for these reasons:  https://www.huffpost.com/entry/trump-impeachment-impeachable-act_n_5de6edb3e4b0913e6f872731?ncid=newsltushpmgpolitics   One of the strongest, most consistent non-profit organizations urging […]

How to achieve peace and true security

December 13, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

People keep worrying about “national security.”  But that is a dead end — and a misleading distraction — unless we understand that MILITARISM ITSELF IS THE PROBLEM and that our nation can be secure ONLY if we help the rest of the world to be secure in more profound ways than mere militarism can accomplish. See the insightful article I wrote at this link: Article on peace and true security            

House Democrats helped COVER UP Trump’s many crimes and violations of the Constitution!

December 11, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats allowed Trump to ESCALATE his crimes and his violations of the Constitution for almost three years.  Trump is a bully, so he recognized the Democrats’ timidity as EXONERATION and an opportunity to ESCALATE into doing worse and worse things. From Trump’s VERY FIRST DAY IN OFFICE he was using his presidential power to enrich himself.  This BLATANTLY VIOLATES the Constitution’s explicit prohibition against “emoluments” (a late-1700s word for this kind of corruption), both for enriching himself from domestic sources and from foreign sources by exploiting his powers as President of the […]
