    Happy Earth Day! All this sheltering in -place is giving Mother Earth a breather.

    PBO tweeted: “Climate change will force far harsher changes on our kids.”
    Michael Moore said similar on Colbert last night…that COVID-19 is a ‘movie trailer’ for the coming climate fallout.
    He’s been working for 4 years on a movie on this topic, and released it yesterday. Now online free.
    n.b. Moore is optimistic that we can step up.

    1. Chuck Todd is a total asshole as opposed to half of an asshole.
    2. I like “Love it or List it.”
    3. My wife is from Jamaica, we’re tempted to move there and live in a hut on the beach.
    4. Georgia is on the cusp of offering human sacrifices to the gods of stupidity.

      Sounds like a good plan Don.

      Love it or List it Vancouver is one of my faves.

      How can the people on the Right be convinced that adults were once fetuses too … so that they would be less eager to offer human sacrifices?

    The Mayor of Las Vegas is hell bent on opening up her town. This is going to be glorious, it is going to be spectacle, like Evel Knievel trying to jump the fountains of Caesars Palace.

      I assume if we are lucky enough to remove both Trump and McConnell in the November election we will still be in trouble for the rest of November, December and January till the inauguration. I assume they both will steamroll more Conservative judges and bills through Congress that we all will be unhappy with. I am not sure if we can block those attempts. However, it would be a million times worse if they win.

    ⁣On this day 50 years ago, millions of people from every corner of our country joined in common cause to demand basic protections to safeguard our planet for future generations. The first Earth Day helped transform the ways we interact with the world around us, and it changed how we viewed our impact on the natural world––inspiring the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency and landmark legislation that protected the air we breathe, the water we drank, and the animals that lived alongside us. ⠀ ⠀ Today, we’re reminded more than ever of the role we play–and the responsibility of our government––to ensure that we do not pass a world beyond repair on to our children. And that starts by not denying the evidence presented by scientists and climate activists around climate change. We must demand more from our government, return to the Paris Agreement, and work to lead the world in reducing the pollution that continues to cause climate change. And science is telling us to go much further––we must continue to accelerate progress on bold new green initiatives that make our economy a clean energy innovator. ⠀ ⠀ When I think of the world I want to see in the future for my daughters––and the children across the world––I’m reminded that there is so much more we need to do to take care of the one planet we've got, and it’s up to all of us to demand and lead that change.

    They just can’t bring themselves to realize that all norms of conduct are USELESS.

    Step 1 to preventing millions from dying is arresting Trump.

    In honor of Earth Day here is the Michael Jackson …..Earth Song. “What about sunrise, what about rain. What about all the things you said we were to gain. What about killing fields, Is there a time. What about all the things that you said were yours and mines. Did you ever stop to notice, all the blood we’ve shed before. Did you ever stop to notice, this crying Earth this weeping shore. What have we done to the world, look what we’ve done. What about all the peace, that you pledge your only Son. What about flowering fields, is there a time. What about all the dreams , that you said were yours and mines. Did you ever stop to notice all the children dead from war, did you ever stop to notice, this crying Earth, these weeping shores. I used to dream, I used to glance beyond the stars.Now I don’t know where we are, although I know…..

        -thanks, got it HD!!
        Tearing down our forests for timber…cow farms for fast food outfits…and razing forests for soy beans like they do in the Amazon MUST END. Our planet is crying out for our help. We like our skies blue and our rivers clean, our kids are seeing that right now. Let’s make a noise before big business as usual gets back in the driving seat. We can end fossil fuels if we make a plan and follow through…
        Ahhhhhhh, our magnificent Earth is taking a clean breath right now.

    please read this thread…and tell me what you think about it…

    • April 23, 2020 at 10:12 am

      Very likely a large degree of truth to that. Trump is obsessed with money and will do anything that other wealthy people tell him to do, especially Putin, who is super wealthy because he’s stolen moneybag intimidation for decades and Trump is very jealous of that. I guess that’s capitalism.

    • April 23, 2020 at 11:35 am

      Thanks again Sheila!
      I think Trump would push us all out of top floor window to keep himself from going to jail,
      and keep the money flowing to his pocket. Imo the McConnell right wing would be happy with a russian style oligarchy and mafia corruption. They don’t want democracy, they want faux democracy, where they set the rules and agenda behind the scenes. Which is how Putin works. Demolish government and attack the press and you can get your rich guys into power who will (your point) save greedy capitalism
      and block the sharing of wealth and public resources = Even in the worst pandemic.

      Ohhhhhhh that is my question even in dreams !! Thank you for asking this.
      We know the jails are crashing with COVID-19 and we know ICE is sick.
      Is Trump is covering up the death toll on the border? That would be consistent with everything we know about him. The vile Trump-Miller-McConnell-Bannon legacy finally come home to roost.
      –May justice be won and done.
