The United States, absent on climate

It’s old news by this point, but, during the recent G7 summit in Biarritz, France, Donald Trump not only lobbied hard to get Russian dictator Vladimir Putin reinstated in the group, and made the case to have next year’s event at his failing, bedbug infested Doral golf club, but, like the coward that he is, […]

Michigan’s 6 ballot proposals and how I intend to vote

Other than trying my best to convince folks to vote for Syed Taj and Barack Obama, and against the likes of “mentally unbalanced” Tea Party-favorite Kerry Bentivolio, the race-baiting Pete Hoekstra, and the climate change denying serial liar Mitt Romney, I haven’t really said much about the upcoming election.
