Our November 2022 TV interview is positive, upbeat, creative, and encouraging.  Besides working to stop what we oppose, what if we also worked equally hard and skillfully to accomplish what we […]

U.S. is a “rogue nation” in failing to take humane, ethical actions that other nations have taken

September 13, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

The U.S. is the only (or almost the only) modern industrial nation that fails to help its people and the world in these important ways:   The U.S. health care system keeps ranking LAST among rich nations. The U.S. does not offer paid leave for new mothers, but 186 other nations do. The U.S. has not ratified the Cluster Munitions Treaty. The U.S. is one of only 14 members of the United Nations that have failed to ratify the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The U.S. is the only nation in the U.N. that has failed to […]

YES! We really CAN organize grassroots movements to solve big, hard, scary problems!

September 1, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Many important issues (climate, nuclear weapons, etc.) are big and scary to think about, so many people do not want to think about them.  Many people feel that those problems are so big and are imposed upon us by powerful forces (big businesses, the Pentagon, etc.).  This power imbalance causes many people feel that they are powerless to solve the problems because the problems were created and are perpetuated by forces that are so big and powerful, and that we are too small and weak to oppose them.  It’s easier to simply avoid dealing with them.  As a result, the […]

Joe Biden let Mitch McConnell fool him into appointing RIGHT-WING EXTREMIST, ANTI-CHOICE judge

July 5, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has a long history of making deals to trick Democrats into doing stupid things — and then violating his end of the promises.  These three articles from late June and early July 2022 report on a very recent example:   Biden Reportedly Cuts Deal With Mitch McConnell to Nominate Anti-Abortion Judge:  https://truthout.org/articles/biden-reportedly-cuts-deal-with-mitch-mcconnell-to-nominate-anti-abortion-judge/?eType=EmailBlastContent&eId=804fbf24-9b4d-4196-85c0-86d77ea4a1a8   Biden makes deal with McConnell on anti-abortion judicial nominee who was too corrupt for Trump:  https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2022/6/30/2107576/-Biden-makes-deal-with-McConnell-on-anti-abortion-judicial-nominee-who-was-too-corrupt-for-Trump?detail=emaildkre&pm_source=DKRE&pm_medium=email   Biden’s Planned Nomination of Anti-Abortion Judge Outrages Left:  https://www.bnnbloomberg.ca/biden-s-planned-nomination-of-anti-abortion-judge-outrages-left-1.1786795?link_id=9&can_id=1d662460c0abb8939c5044c82927552b&source=email-cassidy-hutchinson-showed-the-republican-party-what-patriotism-looks-like-2&email_referrer=email_1594721&email_subject=cruel-and-heartless-10-year-old-girl-denied-abortion-in-ohio

June 4, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

This was published on page 9 of the June-July 2022 issue of The Progressive magazine.  See www.progressive.org if you want to read more articles and/or subscribe.  The headline stated:  Elections Have (Deadly) Consequences “An analysis of data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Johns Hopkins University found that the sixteen states with the highest COVID-19 death rates since last summer were all run by Republicans.  Leading the pack was West Virginia at about 204 deaths per 100,000 people.  The states with the lowest rates, including California at fifty-eight deaths per 100,000, all had either Democratic governors or […]

ABOLISH THE FILIBUSTER in order to reduce gun violence and solve MANY other problems!

May 29, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

On MANY, MANY issues, the American people want to solve problems, but Senate Republicans (and “Democrats” Manchin and Sinema) keep using the filibuster to PREVENT the Senate from solving them!!! I remember the 1960s when racist Southern Democrats used the filibuster to prevent passing Civil Rights legislation.  In the late 1960s the parties flipped, and now it is the Republican Party that is extremely racist. Now Republican senators use the filibuster to PREVENT solving problems related to the environment, climate, poverty, racial justice, voting rights, health care, gun violence, economic justice, and many other issues. EXAMPLE:  GUN VIOLENCE:   Republicans keep […]

Let’s flip Texas’ S.B. 8 anti-abortion vigilante law to men who impregnate women without their explicit consent.

February 24, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

In 2021 Texas enacted into law S.B. 8.  It prohibits abortion anywhere in the state after about six weeks of pregnancy.  It delegates enforcement by deputizing ordinary individuals to sue abortion providers or anyone who “aids and abets” anyone getting an abortion in Texas.  The law offers a $10,000 reward — plus legal fees — for anyone who wins their lawsuit.  The law aggressively makes people vigilantes and bounty-hunters. The law has two main purposes:  (1) Prevent abortions.  (2) Harass and shut down any doctor, clinic, or other service who helps women get abortions. The law targets women.  But a […]

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, […]
