    • How The Metaphysics Of Capitalism Destroyed The World
      Back in 1968 the book “Limits to Growth” stormed the world. Computer models predicted that humans would run out of almost every resource, overshoot carying capacity, then crash. It was well known and widely discussed and combined with the oil crashes, made the 70s a ferment of practical and theoretical work on alternative energy, different ways of farming an […]

Obama’s Vice-Presidential Double Bind

How will Barack Obama handle the delicate issues surrounding his choice of candidate to share the ticket with (if he becomes the nominee). He is is a very difficult spot, and it’s likely he won’t want to make a decision soon. However, he may be forced to do so. So many Democrats are calling for a “unity ticket” and the longer he waits the more speculation there will be about whether he will ask Hillary Clinton to share the ticket with him. Continue reading

Thursday- To do’s

Ack! I just turned my oatmeal into soup. How do you fix that?

Anyway, I want to remind you guys that you only have a couple more weekends to make history in PA. This weekend and especially next weekend, will be important GOTV opportunities for those of you who want Hillary to kick Obama’s @$$. I know where I’ll be going this weekend. But, you ask, how can *I* get involved, Riverdaughter? I’m so glad you asked. To volunteer for Hillary in PA, check out this page: Pennsylvania for Hillary. Make History!

BTW, I have room in my car for a fellow traveller from the NJ area if anyone wants to come with me tomorrow. My mom has an extra bed. Lemme know if you’re interested in the comments.

In other news:

  • Elton John says “there’s no one more qualified to lead this country” than Hillary.  He was in NYC to raise money for Hillary last night.  John also said, “I’m amazed by the misogynistic attitudes of some of the people in this country. And I say to hell with them …. I love you Hillary, I’ll be there for you.”  Awwwww.  Let’s all Crocodile Rock!
  • Pelosi nixes Unity ticket again.  The lady doth protest too much, methinks.  What could Nancy be thinking?  Surely, SURELY, she isn’t contemplating herself as Barack’s running mate?  Would she?  It’s just a thought.  Please tell me how this couldn’t happen.  (OTOH, it would explain an awful lot)  On the other side, polls indicate that McCain and Condoleeza Rice would make a winning pair.  Fess up, guys, you’ve been freeping this poll, haven’t you?  You sly dogs.  😉
  • Mr. Committment needs more time to assess the situation regarding China and Tibet before weighing in on whether to suggest a boycott.  Well, that was clear.
  • Oh, Wait!  It’s not McCain and Rice.  It’s McCain and BLOOMBERG.  Well, that will solve the fundraising issue.
