About Me

Let me get this out of the way first: I am a Canadian. Half Canadienne, Half Norwegian. I am a woman. I endeavor to keep my posts objective. My slant is definitely towards a democracy that works on a meritocracy that is based, ideally, on a starting point of a level playing ground and a fair kick at the can, no matter your passion, so long as it embodies fairness and justice to all the peoples of the earth, and of course, to mother earth herself. Thank you for helping me learn more through the dialogue here on DU.

New book release: Watch Out - Clinton's War on Women

As always, beware the source (not NT, but the Nixon/Reagan advisor/author).

Hillary's late appeal in NH - WOW! Bernie has won either way!

Can someone figure out how to get the video from democracynow.org for today at 9 minutes? Hillary's speech is pure Bernie. Hopefully it is sincere, but you gotta say, Bernie wins!!!

New article and videos from Canada: Is Bernie Sanders the Star Wars of Politics?


A narrative of hope, of deep near mythic yearnings for a better world, of a ‘force’ awakening within, the survival of a planet at stake…where have we seen this before? As with Star Wars, the Sanders’ brand, his story, taps into our deepest longings. We want to believe the promise of ‘a new hope.’ We want to believe a better world is possible. We want to believe that by uniting together as a people we can awaken a force that can defeat the dark side. Unlike any other candidate, Sanders acknowledges the unparalleled influence banks and large corporations have on politics and on people’s lives –our lives. In Sanders’ narrative, these entities have become so large, so influential, so corrupt, so dangerous that they are akin to the Galactic Empire and not one but several Death Stars.
