US groups honouring Paris climate pledges despite Trump

US states, cities and businesses signed up to ‘America’s pledge’ to combat global warning have a combined economic power equal to the world’s third-biggest economy. The US states, cities and businesses that have signed up to reduce greenhouse gas emissions despite president Donald Trump’s threats to withdraw from the Paris agreement would, if put together, have the clout of the world’s third biggest economy, after the US and China.  Continue reading

As we have misused our richest land, we have misused ourselves; as we have wasted our bountiful water, we have wasted ourselves; as we have diminished the lives of one whole segment of our people, we have diminished ourselves. 


Why Corporations Need Permanent Tax Cuts (Spoiler Alert:They Don’t)

By Jane Edwards

Corporations are people. This is so, because Chief Justice John Roberts, in 2010, hijacked a case that the court was hearing so that he could eliminate any law that prevented money from being used to influence legislation. Chief Justice Roberts, in his divine wisdom, joined by four other elitists on his court, conspired to breathe the breath of life into Corporation’s nostrils, and Corporation became a living person. OK. So, Corporations don’t actually have nostrils. Devil’s in the details.


Vaping 101 – Health Relation, Benefits, Dangers, Fun Facts, And More

Five Myths About Female Veterans

Jerri Bell, a retired naval officer, is a co-author, with Tracy Crow, of “It’s My Country Too: Women’s Military Stories From the American Revolution to Afghanistan.” – in the Washington Post

Veterans Day is an occasion to recall the service of our troops. But women’s stories have often been absent from those recollections. Works of fiction and nonfiction, memoirs (such as Mary Jennings Hegar’s), documentaries (including “The Invisible War”) and dramas (such as “Blood Stripe”) have helped show this side of the armed forces. Still, myths about female veterans endure. Kayla Williams, who wrote a memoir about serving as an Army linguist in Iraq, remembers an infantryman who was “sure that women troops would be flown by helicopter to shower every three days.” Here are some of the most persistent misconceptions.   Continue reading
