URGENT! Tell WA State Senate to pass SJM 8006 to Prevent Nuclear War

March 8, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

We got a WA State Senate committee to pass a resolution calling upon Congress to take a sensible step to prevent nuclear war. But it is stuck in the Senate Rules Committee. We must move SJM 8006 from the Senate Rules Committee to the Senate Floor for a vote by next Wednesday March 13, 2019, so it can move on to the House. PLEASE contact members of the WA State Senate Rules Committee.  Phone numbers are on this list:  http://leg.wa.gov/Senate/Committees/RULE/Pages/MembersStaff.aspx  Also — if SJM 8006 goes to the Senate Floor, contact your WA state senators.  See their names and contact […]

Congress must take smart, strong new actions!

After this link about one of Congress’s major problems, I will provide links to proposals for how to solve the problems: How Congress Became a ‘Cathouse’ of Prostitutes Paying Off Their Pimps: https://www.opednews.com/articles/How-Congress-Became-a-Cat-by-Bernard-Starr-Blagojevich_Bribery-Influence-Peddling_Citizens-United_Citizens-United-Vs-Federal-Elections-Commission-181117-463.html   Public opinion polling keeps showing that the American people have VERY NEGATIVE views of Congress.  We must push Congress to stop its corruption, to become much smarter, to stop being so timid, and to take positive actions that serve the broad public interest (instead of rich donors and big business and the military-industrial complex).   This link goes to what www.Indivisible.org wants the next Congress to […]

Nuclear Weapons and Patriarchy Are Closely Interrelated!

March 7, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

This 9-minute video speech “connects the dots” between nuclear weapons and patriarchy. Without blaming any individuals, this smart, insightful woman clearly exposes the systemic links. Let’s reach out to people who care about feminism and help them connect with the peace movement. Likewise, this short video can help the peace movement connect with feminism. Truly, we are all in this together. I encourage watching this smart short video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2rXpp10uS7I        

Interesting information — and some satire — about Trump’s “Wall”

March 7, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

Watch this brilliant, funny, VERY SHORT video about “walls” : https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2019/2/6/1832784/-New-Mexico-s-new-governor-releases-hilariously-quirky-video-literally-busting-thru-Trump-s-wall?detail=emaildkre   Here is another great 1-minute satirical video about Trump’s “wall emergency” : http://www.markfiore.com/january-march-2019/2019/2/20/its-a-wall-emergency?ss_source=sscampaigns&ss_campaign_id=5c78396f17d9610001979274&ss_email_id=5c784314b6eaa40001713af4&ss_campaign_name=New+Animation%3A+Stormy+Summit+and+A+Wall+Emergency&ss_campaign_sent_date=2019-02-28T20%3A24%3A42Z   Beto O’Rourke’s good video about immigrants and Trump’s insane border wall: Although Beto O’Rourke (from Texas) is not very progressive about some things (e.g., he is very subservient to big business), he has good values related to protecting human rights, and he is eager to reach out to the public on behalf of minorities, immigrants, and other folks whose human rights are in danger.  This 7-minute video is good:  https://www.msnbc.com/all-in/watch/the-border-has-never-been-as-safe-and-secure-as-it-is-now-1442974787669   Trump’s thinking is […]

Repeal the Trump/Republican tax law that rips us off and enriches rich people and corporations

March 7, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

Trump and the Republicans LIED TO US when they said the tax scam they pushed through Congress in December 2017 would be good for ordinary people.  They promised it would create jobs. We knew then — and we have solid proof now — that they were lying to us.  Their “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” has been an absolute DISASTER for ordinary people and a GIGANTIC WINDFALL for extremely rich people and big business.   Several credible non-profit organizations and progressive journalists have laid out the facts.  Here are some highlights, with links for more information and several petitions to […]

Right-Wing Christianity is the OPPOSITE of what Jesus taught and practiced!

March 1, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

Americans claim they love Jesus, but actually they hate his politics.  See this article:  https://www.opednews.com/articles/Though-Americans-Claim-to-by-Mike-Rivage-Seul-American-Capitalism_American-Culture_American-Foreign-Policy_American-Terror-190223-511.html   Mike Pence, the Dominionists, and their theology of power pervert authentic Christianity.  See this article:  https://www.counterpunch.org/2019/01/30/a-theology-of-power-mike-pence-and-the-dominionists/   Jerry Falwell Jr. says Jesus’ teachings don’t apply to politics.  A great progressive non-profit organization, Faithful America (www.faithfulamerica.org) sends smart, conscientious e-mails.  In early January 2019 they sent this:  “In a Washington Post interview this week, Jerry Falwell Jr., the president of Liberty University, said that a poor person never gave anyone a job or gave anybody charity “in any real volume.”  He argued that Jesus’ teachings […]

NEWS — DANGER — OPPORTUNITY re: Military Draft

March 1, 2019 GlenAnderson 0

A federal judge rules it’s unconstitutional to register ONLY men for the military draft. For a long time before that decision, the federal government had been studying what to do about the draft: — Register women too — Require mandatory “national service” in military or civilian jobs — Abolish the draft altogether. I’ve been following this closely, and there is no indication yet what decision the federal inquiry will propose. Now that a federal judge has ruled it unconstitutional to register only men, this forces the issue into one of the options listed above. See this article: https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2019/02/24/military-draft-judge-rules-male-only-registration-unconstitutional/2968872002/   MORE […]
