Jim Hightower lists this sequence of recent right-wing domination of U.S. Supreme Court decisions

May 22, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

This came from www.hightowerlowdown.org in relation to the leak of the U.S. Supreme Court’s upcoming decision overturning the past half century of women’s right to choose abortion:   With the leak of a draft Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade, the right-wing takeover of the Court has now smacked us in the face. Meanwhile, Hightower has for many years preached about the particularly un-democratic nature of the Court – an unelected body of nine sitting in judgment for 340 million — and we thought we’d share some of our “greatest hits” on how we got here. Brush up on your […]

Republicans like to SAY they are “the party of Lincoln,” but they DO THEY OPPOSITE!

May 22, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Republicans like to SAY they are “the party of Lincoln, but actually they DO THE OPPOSITE!   Lincoln freed the slaves and fought the Civil War to end slavery, BUT: Republicans allow their party members to bring Confederate flags to Republican Party events. Republicans pass laws to prevent teaching school children about racial discrimination in U.S. history. Republicans have prevented immigrants from African nations. Republicans vigorously oppose efforts to reduce gun violence, even though Lincoln himself was murdered by a gun.   If Republicans REALLY were “the party of Lincoln, they would STRONGLY SUPPORT: Black Pride Black Lives Matter Teaching […]

Big Money in Elections Corrupts Our Government

May 19, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

While this TV series – “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” – deals with a wide variety of issues related to peace, social justice, economics, the environment, and so forth, the June 2022 interview focuses on a strategically smart way to help us SOLVE ANY public policy problem you care about. This month’s interview shows how we could solve big problems if we would get Big Money out of politics!  Huge amounts of money corrupt election campaigns.  Huge amounts of money corrupt all levels of government – our nation, states, and local governments – and prevent them from solving problems. Certainly, an honest […]

Corruption in Congress: They own stocks in companies that profit from the wars they support.

April 22, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Voters hate corruption.  Congress keeps allowing itself to be corrupted in a few ways, including: – Allowing big businesses to donate to their campaigns and thereby pressure Congress members to do what their major donors have paid them to do – Owning, buying, and selling stock in businesses.  Congress makes decisions that can enrich the companies that they own. Nowadays a big problem is the fact that some members of Congress own stocks in companies that make military weapons, so those members of Congress get even more rich by passing bigger and bigger military budgets — and supporting more wars […]

Trump needs to be President again in order to provide legal protection from accountability

March 31, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

I don’t think I ever posted this to my blog until now.  I wrote this blog post while Trump was President and people were pushing to impeach him and drive him out of office, so the headline I had prepared for this blog post was this: If Trump were to leave office, he’d face many prosecutions and prison sentences. EXPECT HIS COUP & CHAOS to escalate! Now much of this blog post is still relevant a few years after I had written it:   For years now, many psychologists and psychologists have exposed Trump’s extreme mental disabilities, including his narcissism […]

World Citizenship — See fascinating information here

March 22, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

The April 2022 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” provides fresh insights and a creative alternative that can get the whole world unstuck from nationalistic antagonisms and endless wars. Wars have raged for thousands of years of wars, but they have never produced lasting peace.  The promoters of World War I promised that it would be “the war to end all wars.”  Have we had a century of peace since 1918? When we are chronically stuck in a dysfunctional system, we need to challenge the long-standing assumptions.  We need to think creatively – “think outside the box” – and choose positive […]

Now it’s CONFIRMED: Trump SIGNIFICANTLY DID UNDERCOUNT MINORITIES in the 2020 census.

March 12, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

In the past few years I have posted several news reports of Trump’s DELIBERATE, RACIST, PARTISAN abuse of the 2020 census in order to undercount minorities and unfairly help the Republican Party.  I have copied a few of them below — after THESE NEW CONFIRMED REPORTS that TRUMP DID INDEED SIGNIFICANTLY UNDERCOUNT MINORITIES.   NEW INFORMATION in March 2020:   A reliable source reported this on March 10, 2022:  The 2020 Census missed 18.8 million Americans – the biggest net undercount in three decades. The Census Bureau said that while the overall population total of 323 million was accurate, it […]

Look at what politicians & powerful people ACTUALLY DO. Don’t be fooled by their glib platitudes.

January 29, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Politicians, businesses, and other powerful sources keep doing bad things but try to fool people by saying glib platitudes.  Do NOT believe at face value what they say.  Look at what they ACTUALLY DO. For four years the U.S. was ruled by someone who said he would “Make America Great.”  His actual policies did the opposite. Politicians and businesses keep saying things that the people want to hear, but their actual policies violate the public’s interests. Platitudes and hypocrisies have been around for a very long time.  Jesus kept denouncing people who kept trying to impress people with their religiosity, […]

The filibuster and the deception of “bi-partisanship” prevents our nation from solving serious problems!

January 25, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

First, let’s be clear that the filibuster is NOT in the Constitution!  The filibuster is merely a rule that the Senate imposed upon itself.  This silly rule could be abolished if the Senate wanted to pass important legislation. The filibuster is a way for a minority of senators to prevent a majority (51 to 59 of them) from passing legislation to solve our nation’s problems.  The filibuster was used repeatedly to prevent the Senate from passing Civil Rights legislation long ago.  It is used now to prevent passing legislation that would solve serious problems regarding voting rights, the environment, the […]

Martin Luther King urged a “Radical Revolution of Values” — Learn about this here.

January 17, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Our society and our whole world are in several serious crises all at once. Powerful forces keep making things worse.  They want to intimidate us — to make us sit down and shut up so they can continue to oppress us. But better values do exist, and nonviolence is actually more powerful than The Establishment.  (My free online workshop series “Nonviolent Grassroots Organizing” helps us understand and use nonviolence in clever, strategic ways.)  Ever since the Civil Rights Movement’s era, I have appreciated Martin Luther King’s strong, bold, radical message and his methodology.  I have read his books and studied […]

The U.S.’s “democracy” is seriously weakening!

January 17, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

The U.S. likes to think of itself as the best democracy in the world — and a beacon and role model for other nations. American politicians like to brag about this. But ACTUALLY, the U.S.’s democracy has been SERIOUSLY WEAKENING for a number of years — and in several ways. Our nation suffers many serious problems, but extremely rich people and big businesses profit from those problems (pollution, low wages, racial injustices, an out-of-control and constantly escalating war machine, elections that are dominated by Big Money, news media that favor the Establishment, Republicans’ many deliberate actions to cheat in elections […]
