Can DU be both a scaffold and a rabbit hole?

Looking back to move forward.

It’s becoming more and more evident as time passes that the indigenous peoples of our planet, slaughtered in untold millions over the last 500 years by colonial and imperialistic nations, were and are more adept at living within the parameters of their environments. Conveniently, conquerors like Europeans and their next generations of colonial offspring created gods and holy cabals who commanded this destruction of these more environmentally advanced civilizations. Only now, when the modern world stands at the edge of extinction are a few looking back to those earlier destroyed and ridiculed for leadership and answers. Sadly, greed, ignorance, and hubris are still in charge and madly speeding towards the cliff.

Why is Biden supporting the Line 5 pipeline?

This project is is in direct opposition to Indigenous rights, clean water safety, and any form of Climate Catastrophe awareness. Wtf.

Rolling Coal, I'm sure we can all agree, is some really stupid shit.

Yet, how many millions of people still frolic about our oceans on these nasty behemoths?

Katie Porter is my rep and I couldn't be prouder of her.

Do you like your rep’s approach, or do wish they’d be more courageous, outspoken, and active?

What say you?

What if we...

It is time for the USA to stop looking for and creating enemies. China is not our enemy. It is time to cut the bloated War Department budget in half and use half to build the best sustainable, peaceful nation we can be. We poses no legitimate moral high ground. It is time to flush stale lies like manifest destiny, dominion, and nation building (read meddling covertly in the affairs of other countries) and join the world as a nation among nations. If we take these actions, then perhaps we will stand a chance of averting Climate Catastrophe.

Thank goodness for Amy Goodman's news and perspective, speaking truth to power.

Mr. Hoh seemed to actually be informed and matter of fact.

The horseshit coming down on MSM, everyone’s denial that we were nation building, the insistence that women’s lot was so much better under the propped up, corrupt government when the majority of women still suffered the age old indignaties, the silent blind eye to drug lords etc. makes it impossible to believe anything “official”.

There is more written about and are more photos and vids posted depicting Agent Orange

than there are about President Biden and important pending legislation before lawmakers. Does anyone but me think this is just way fucking out of whack? All these proposals before Congress must be viewed through the lens of Climate Emergency and not through a pair of nasty orange colored glasses. DU is obsessed with the Orange menace.

In a time when our planet is racing downhill into the chaos of Climate Catastrophe,

the entire political world, led by our super rich and corporate overlords, is a willful clusterfuck, an orchestrated tempest in a teapot, a clamor of misdirection and false imperatives so in grained in societies as to systematically overwhelm factual, scientific reason and the focused, universal response required in the few minutes remain8ng of our eleventh hour.

I’m a grandfather and it simply breaks my heart I must encourage my grandchildren to prepare to adapt. Any official help for their futures will be terminally minimal and hopelessly late.

It's taken me nearly ten years to reach 2000 posts.

This is what I say today:

While I feel way too little time is devoted to our environmental emergency, I find most discussions here on DU informative and thought provoking.

Thanks to all Dems here for caring, and to my fellow progressives—Keep pushing left.
