Lesser of two evils vote is counterproductive and morally corrupt

There’s probably never been a US presidential election where both likely nominees are more despised by more people. Millions on both sides plan to vote for the least despicable candidate. Do you need more proof our political system is corrupt to the core? Continue reading

Hillary Clinton’s deliberate deceit

Hillary Clinton is an exceptionally skillful politician. Collectively, she and her husband Bill have parlayed their political experience into at least $125 million in speaking fees alone. According to Bloomberg, Hillary was paid $12 million in the 16 months after leaving her role as US secretary of state. Knowing she’d likely run for president, Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank and Morgan Stanley (and other big Wall Street corporations) gladly paid her $2.9 million in speaking fees alone. The same Wall Street corporations then gave her campaign super PACs millions more. Coincidence? Continue reading

Criminalize political lies or civilization dies

The vast social injustice rife throughout the world is reaching a tipping point. The people of Planet Earth are mad as hell and they’re not going to take it anymore. The ecological devastation and immense human suffering caused by collaborating, corrupt governments around the world is awakening all humanity to a common cause. The time is ripe for a worldwide political revolution. Continue reading

An elegantly simple way to revolutionize government

What started as a somewhat complex mathematical analysis of the game of politics using game theory (the mathematical study of strategic decision making) has evolved years later into an extraordinarily simple idea that would revolutionize government at all levels. Continue reading

Criminalize political lies to save planet earth

If we lie to our government it’s a serious crime. Why isn’t it an even more serious crime when our government lies to us? If crime is willful action that harms others, and we punish crime based on the extent of its harm, why aren’t we criminalizing and severely punishing political lies, which often result in great harm, including massive death and suffering throughout the world? Continue reading

Top 10 reasons to legalize marijuana now

Prohibition creates, sustains and handsomely rewards the illegal drug industry while pretending to fight that very same industry. Continue reading

Why humanity is doomed unless our schools start teaching our children how to think

Proposing a new discipline called sound thinking

At a bare minimum, our children must acquire skills in the “3 Rs” (reading, writing and ‘rithmetic) to succeed in life. Humanity is dangerously past due adding a fourth critical R to our children’s curriculum—reason (actually something much broader than reason, which I call sound thinking, outlined below). Continue reading

EXPOSED: Official Game Rules of American Politics (satire)

The game of American Politics is played by skilled politicians (called players), but controlled by an elite ruling class of oligarchs (called owners). The game is comparable in many ways to pro baseball, except there are only two competing teams (called Republicans and Democrats). Like pro baseball, 1) the players work for the owners, not for the people who finance the game, 2) the players are well paid (especially highly skilled players), but the big profits go to the owners, and, 3) like baseball, the big profits in American Politics come from the pockets of the masses of people observing the game (called fans).

Neutralizing Citizens United won’t get big money out of government

Greatly reducing the value of political influence is the only way

The Supreme Court ruling on Citizens United versus the Federal Election Commission is a grave threat to America’s already faltering democracy. This ruling essentially legalizes the well-under-way takeover of our government by big corporations. To claim corporations are persons and are thus protected by our First Amendment is an absurd abomination. Continue reading

Either controlled demolition was used on 9/11 or the controlled demolition industry is guilty of massive fraud

The controlled demolition industry claims it takes months of preparation and meticulously placed and timed explosives (especially on lower floors) to neatly collapse a modern steel-framed building into its footprint. But our government claims this elaborate preparation and careful execution is obviously unnecessary. Either we’re being lied to by our government or we’re being lied to by the controlled demolition industry. Continue reading

Satire: Experts’ stunning confession proves controlled demolition NOT responsible for 9/11 WTC destruction

Nobody can deny the neat collapse of three World Trade Center buildings into their footprints at nearly free-fall speeds looks exactly like so-called “controlled demolition.” And yes, high-rise fires (many bigger, more intense, and longer lasting than those at the WTC) had never come close to bringing down a modern steel-framed building until it happened THREE times in one day on 9/11. But just because something looks like a duck, walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, smells like a duck, tastes like a duck, and wears a tee shirt that reads: I’M A DUCK, YOU IDIOT!!!!, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a duck. Continue reading

The supreme political problem: Why isn’t big money in government the overwhelming focus of political blogs?

As long as big money continues to dominate our political system, railing against the countless examples of unfairness or incompetence in our government is just idle chatter. Trying to solve any government problem without first addressing big money is merely hacking at the branches of evil. Big money in government is the root cause of practically every woe discussed on our political blogs. Until we solve the supreme political problem, everything else will remain essentially unchanged (or get even worse). Continue reading

A manifesto for the impending second American revolution

The vast social injustice rife throughout the world has finally reached a tipping point. The smell of revolution is ripe in the air. We the people of planet earth have finally had enough. The immense human suffering caused by collaborating, corrupt governments throughout the world is about to awaken all humanity to a common cause. Continue reading

Why our government would fear Wikiarguments more than WikiLeaks

Forcing congressional accountability

In its landmark ruling on the Pentagon Papers, the US Supreme Court said, “Only a free and unrestrained press can effectively expose deception in government. And paramount among the responsibilities of a free press is the duty to prevent any part of the government from deceiving the people and sending them off to distant lands to die of foreign fevers and foreign shot and shell.” Continue reading
