Paranoid? Selfish? Delusional?

I know I’m being paranoid; I think I’m being selfish; I’m probably being delusional.

Donald Trump, with his casual denial of climate change is putting the whole earth’s population in danger of extinction in less than a century.

Hillary Clinton, with her love of conflict and war is putting a significant portion of earth’s population in danger of extinction from the results of nuclear war in the immediate future.

Concentration of Wealth and Power

"REQUIEM FOR THE AMERICAN DREAM is the definitive discourse with Noam Chomsky, widely regarded as the most importantintellectual alive, on the defining characteristic of our time - the deliberate concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a select few.

Through interviews filmed over four years, Chomsky unpacks the principles that have brought us to the crossroads of historically unprecedented inequality - tracing a half-century of policies designed to favor the most wealthy at the
expense of the majority - while also looking back on his own life of activism and political participation.

2016: Media Backs War Candidate But Wall St. Divided On Building Up US Instead As China Rises

DESCRIPTION:
But for media management, election 2016 would be a playing out in public of indecision within the ruling rich 1/10th of 1%, whether to switch to less profitable investing to build up USA, or continue wildly enriching themselves in wars & investing in higher profit rendering low wage 3rd world nations, at the same time helping these nations, led by China, to overtake the US & Europe in economic and political power sooner.

Cracker Jacks

This election is like opening a box of Cracker Jacks.

 

God only knows what Trump might do.

I take that back, God doesn’t know, and neither does Trump.

In the contradictory and bizarre word salads Trump serves up he is liable to say just about anything. In his speeches and tweets, he often starts with “a lot of people say,” followed by looney tunes claims and ending with, “you can look it up on the Internet.

However, I don’t believe he’d lead us to war.

David Schoales, Mollie Burke

I have favorite candidates for every office on the ballot, but the two for whom I feel greatest enthusiasm are David Schoales for Windham County Senator, and Mollie Burke, Brattleboro District 2 Representative.  

For years while the Clark-Canal Summer Program was going, as a volunteer, Mollie Burke taught art to neighborhood children. Hardly anyone knew about this: She did it solely because she is a good neighbor with love in her heart. Mollie talks with neighborhood people all the time, not just when electioneering. She is approachable, intelligent, responsive. We are fortunate to have an effective representative in the State House, and it is going to a pleasure to vote for her.
