OPINION: On Christmas Eve my neighbor, Betty Miramontes of Puerto Vallarta’s Business Association, told me about a Humpback that got entangled in fish nets and couldn’t be saved. She said they needed help getting the word out how to better protect our beloved whales in beautiful Banderas Bay.
OPINION: The clown car carnival is upon us! Yes, the brigade of braggarts hoping for the GOP presidential nomination is swarming across the country (or at least the states with Republican primaries). It appears that many of the buffoons have not yet formulated their campaign slogans. We’re here to help.
Sincerely-Held Beliefs: Religiosity is an odious mistake of candidates from both major political parties
OPINION: Religiosity is an odious mistake of candidates from both major political parties but is especially prevalent among members of the rightwing nutjob cabal. But the religious behave in the same manner as radical extremists by claiming extra-special rights for 'sincerely-held beliefs.' If they want to play by those rules, let's look at my sincerely-held beliefs.
EARTHRISING is a Series on How we can lift each other up higher and higher through harnessing our Imagination, Ancient Tribal Wisdom, Green Technology & Heart...
OPINION (by John Scott G): Here at the headquarters of the Anti-Conservative Team, we were fortunate to gain an interview with two of the GOP's behind-the-scenes operatives, men who eschew publicity because of their ties to the Koch brothers' evil empire of anti-Americanism.
OPINION: A large number of people are being used as unpaid 'volunteers' in what might be called The Termination of Life Project and older generations need to apologize to everyone under 18 for creating conditions that will slowly, inexorably eat away at their lives.
OPINION: Every day from now until the GOP's anti-American political convention in the summer of 2016 there will be horrifying speeches delivered by egomaniacs who are hoping to be anointed as the leading rightwing nutjob. What if their bloviating contained statements of truth instead of the standard conservative lies?
OPINION: The policies, positions, and practices of Conservatives can be immensely helpful to you -- assuming you're a wealthy person or a corporation. But for the vast majority of people, Conservatism is an evil pestilence that leads to pain, disease, starvation, and the breakdown of everything valuable that should accrue to you from living in a civilized society.
OPINION: Senator Jim Jeffords, my fellow Rutland Vermont skier, just passed on at 80, but his heroic contributions live on, including one that has been virtually a secret. With the help of EIGHT Native American leaders, he helped reduce U.S. dental mercury by 48%, which has spread to 105 countries.
OPINION: The conservative cabal is wide-ranging and well-funded. Collaborating with their primary co-conspirators in the GOP, conservatives are working hard to destroy everything good and decent about the United States of America. #GOPvsUSA
OPINION: What do normal, decent people believe? By comparison, what do conservatives believe? As anyone with an I.Q. above 80 knows, it's a matter of fact versus fiction, truth versus lies, reality versus 'cloud-cuckoo-land.' Come with us now as we compare and contrast the understanding of progressives versus the wish-upon-a-black-hole beliefs of conservatives.
OPINION: Walk a mile in someone else's shoes, the proverb states. In other words, have some empathy. All righty then, I will try spending a day as a RWNJDB (rightwing nutjob douchebag) and see how it feels.
OPINION: Freedom comes at a price. People in the USA have the right to be stupid, just as the rest of us have the right to mock them or shun them. But when they form into a know-nothing, obfuscating, and obstructionist political party, the true cost of freedom begins to be experienced.
OPINION (SATIRE): With a shudder in my soul and hand sanitizer in my pocket, I went to interview a couple of operatives in the bowels of the conservative cabal. Er, conservative coven. Um, conservative clan? Just WTH do you call this human debris, anyway?
OPINION: There are many reasons people vote Republican besides stupidity and racism. With so much doubt and confusion swirling around "the moron party," we thought it was a good time to provide this little test. You can try this quick and easy examination for yourself as well as give a copy to close family members, friends, coworkers, neighbors, and that weird uncle who always ruins your family gatherings by spouting rightwing nutjob nonsense he heard on "the Fox News."
OPINION: As an Olympic skier, I want to thank all those who prayed for the joy and safety of everyone at Russia’s surprisingly “awesome” games. Joining with the Olympic families, were Christian Scientists, Native Americans, Aetherius Society, Monks of Moscow and so many more to help preserve this greatest force for Peace, Understanding, Healing, and Unity for over 1,000 years in Ancient times, and 100 years in Modern times.
OPINION: Are you running for public office in a district full of incredibly dim-witted people? Hello republican candidates! Worried about attracting a large number of moron voters? Not to worry, GOP Outfitters is ready to serve you.
OPINION: To further help heal and unite America, on February 26, New Mexico’s Sipapu ski area announced that it is joining Pajarito Mt and Ski Santa Fe in offering landmark affordable skiing and snowboarding opportunities to the tribes of New Mexico and Arizona.
OPINION: The Olympics has been the greatest force for Peace, Understanding, Healing, and Unity for over 1000 years in Ancient times and 100 years in Modern times. Given that Olympic heroes have inspired countless youth to be happily healthy, productive, brilliant and generous, we hope you will take a moment to join this world prayer for “The Joy and Safety of the Sochi Olympics,” heartened by how it has worked for the last five Olympics.
OPINION: After a friend wrote me about seeing a TV show called 'Focus on New Mexico,' we both started wondering if GOP-controlled states have similar programs. Of course they do! Let's take a peek at the outline for one of their offerings.
