The Big Brother YouTube Ad Dissing Hillary

Can we believe Obama when he says he had nothing to do with the YouTube ad that dissed Hillary? He has strong ties to the company that made the video. Something doesn't sound right.

Who Does The White House Think They're Kidding?

CNN reports:

The White House will allow key presidential aide Karl Rove and former counsel Harriet Miers to be interviewed by committees probing the firings of U.S. attorneys, but they will not testify under oath, Rep. Chris Cannon says.

The White House is too stupid to know that the rest of us know how stupid they are! Someone needs to tell them that by refusing to testify under oath, it means they are LYING.

Growing Movement to Impeach Bush for War Crimes

Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson (a Democrat) is the latest person to call for the impeachment of George W. Bush. A article says the following, among other things:

“I do not say this lightly, but the record is plain: President Bush is a war criminal,” Anderson, a Democrat in heavily Republican Utah, said in another stinging denunciation of the Republican president. “He must be held accountable.”

Hear, hear.

Our New STOP GLOBAL WARMING Bumper Sticker

Our exclusive bumper sticker says:


Buy this and display it and help save the earth! Buy a bunch and send them to friends and to politicians.

Please note: We created this bumper sticker as a public service. We don't make any profit on this item.

Here's some info in mainstream media about how science shows that switching to a vegan diet does more to help prevent global warming than switching to a hybrid car. And here's an article about a recent scientific study.

Urge Congress To Act Against Global Warming

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi wrote the following:

As one of my first acts as Speaker, I took action addressing this critical issue and introduced a plan to create a Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming. This special committee will develop recommendations on policies, strategies, technologies, and other innovations to reduce our dependence on foreign oil and greenhouse gas emissions, while maintaining our economic competitiveness. Next week, Vice President Al Gore will testify before Congress, bringing his career of activism on this issue to the fight in the Congress. A global leader on combating climate change, he has helped to educate people around the world and has moved so many to real action. By coming to Congress, his testimony will help us shape the kind of reforms we need and garner even more attention to this growing crisis. Together, we have the opportunity to affect change so great that it can make a difference for future generations. We need your support today if we are going to reverse the disastrous effects of global warming.

She provided this link making it easy to contact Congress.

Al Gore wrote the following:

On March 21st, I will testify before Congress on the immediate action that needs to be taken to end the climate crisis. At the hearing, I will deliver the 294,374 messages you signed, demonstrating that hundreds of thousands of people share my sense of urgency.

Please ask your friends to sign our message to Congress today by visiting:

Jay Leno on Peta's asking Gore to Go Vegan

In his comedy monologue tonight, Jay Leno mentioned PETA's asking Al Gore to really help stop global warming by going vegan. Jay then added his own comment: "I only eat meat that's been run over by a Prius, roadkill hit by a hybrid."

Worldwide Scientists Say Global Warming To Cause Grave Damage to Earth and People

Worldwide scientists say effects of global warming will cause grave damage to the earth and its people. Here's an excerpt from an Associated Press Article:

"Things are happening and happening faster than we expected," said Patricia Romero Lankao of the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colo., one of the many co-authors of the new report. The draft document says scientists are highly confident that many current problems -- change in species' habits and habitats, more acidified oceans, loss of wetlands, bleaching of coral reefs, and increases in allergy-inducing pollen -- can be blamed on global warming. For example, the report says North America "has already experienced substantial ecosystem, social and cultural disruption from recent climate extremes," such as hurricanes and wildfires. But the present is nothing compared to the future. Global warming soon will "affect everyone's life ... it's the poor sectors that will be most affected," Romero Lankao said.

And co-author Terry Root of Stanford University said: "We truly are standing at the edge of mass extinction" of species.

Many - not all - of those effects can be prevented, the report says, if within a generation the world slows down its emissions of carbon dioxide and if the level of greenhouse gases sticking around in the atmosphere stabilizes. If that's the case, the report says "most major impacts on human welfare would be avoided; but some major impacts on ecosystems are likely to occur."

Because of this, I personally urge people to switch to a plant-based way of eating, which can stop global warming!

Proposed Legislation to Give California Newborns $500 Savings Accounts

California has proposed legislation that would provide $500 savings accounts for all babies born in the state. Here's an excerpt from an Associated Press article about it:

Under the bill, every child born in California after Jan. 1, 2008, would receive the money, regardless of their parents' income or immigration status. Recipients would repay the state's initial $500 investment once they turn 18.

The money may be used for three purposes: college or continuing education, a down payment on a home or a retirement account.

"This is the essence of equal opportunity. Every child, every person ought to get a head start," said Sen. Darrell Steinberg, D-Sacramento, who introduced the bill with Sen. Bob Dutton, R-Rancho Cucamonga.

About 566,000 children are expected to be born in California next year.
If families added $50 a month to the state's initial contribution, the savings account would grow to nearly $17,500 at 5 percent interest over 18 years. Steinberg said that would promote saving money in a culture that now is carrying record levels of debt and has the lowest savings rate since the Great Depression.

Here's an opposing view.

And here's my response to the person who wrote the opposing view:

Question for the person who posted this article, for this person who opposes the proposal to give California newborns $500 savings accounts:

If you had been born to a poor family, and if this law had been in effect when you were born, would you not have wanted this $500 savings account opened in your name?

If you're concerned that non-California taxpayers will reap the benefits of this law (a law that would be funded by California taxpayers), why not lobby for the law to be enacted in ALL states, as a Federal law? That would make more sense, and would go a long way towards providing equality for those children who, through no choice of their own are born into poor families and families with no investing savvy.

Hillary's Great Idea Re: Energy

In this video, Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton proposes having oil companies donate some of their windfall profits to promote new clean energy technologies through a Strategic Energy Fund. Among the many things the fund would do to prevent global warming, it would quadruple the tax breaks for the makers of clean energy vehicles, and it would invest $9 billion in an energy research initiative

Hillary says in this video that someone once said "There's nothing wrong with America that can't be fixed by what's right with America."

How very true. You go, girl!

Shades of Bill as "First Gentleman"?

Newsweek's Eleanor Clift writes about what life might be like for Bill Clinton as First Gentleman if Hillary becomes President. Here's an excerpt from her interview with the husband of Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm:

If Hillary wins, what will we do with Bill? Finding a role for the First Gentleman could be as challenging for Hillary as finding a way out of Iraq. A lot has been written about the plight of the political spouse, who is usually a woman. With the rise of women in politics, there’s a whole new genre, the male spouse, which places the man in the unaccustomed supporting role.

I'm sure Bill will be a very supportive First Gentleman and will set a great example for all future ones.

Another Female Has Entered the Presidential Race

I'm having a tough time making a choice, with such an abundance of riches--so many good people running for President. Hillary Clinton appeals to me because I really want to see a woman in office, a woman with humanistic values. Edwards and Obama and Gore appeal to me because they've got good values--and Gore particularly, because we already elected him president and the election was stolen from him, and because of his longstanding commitment to the environment and his early position against the war. I like Kucinich because he's so independent and never supported the war, and because he's a vegan, too.

And now there's another choice, Susie Flynn, whose campaign (being floated by The Children's Defense Fund) is focusing on the more than nine million children in the US who have no health insurance. I think it's great that there's another woman in the race. I'm sure Hilary isn't threatened by her, as nine-year-old Susie lacks Hillary's experience. Maybe she can be Hillary's running mate.
