We aren't dismantling our system; we are building on the vision of what our system was always meant to be
We need to be realistic about how flattering comparisons to the U.S. can be used a shield to avoid talking about pressing issues

I haven't noticed many of these wealthy film idols advocating for poor people who can't even pay for the most basic, reliable oil-based technologies. Cutting off affordable petroleum-based resources isn't just frivolous; it's harmful to the most vulnerable people in society.

When I first heard about the Women's March on Washington back in November, I felt called to get involved. I've used my words and my voice over the years, but have never physically marched. It was finally the time! I decided to stand with the thousands of other concerned citizens and march in solidarity here in Toronto.
The grand plans of socialism are doomed once put into practice, several characters surmise, even before the rise of Windrip. But fascism can somehow use that existing path and exploit it for its own.

It is unbelievable to me that such a man can be elected president, but it serves as a warning that the politics of sexism, racism and fear still have great currency. It shows that the progress we thought we had made on the equality of women was as fragile as many in the women's movement had been warning all along. We still have a very long way to go.

Imagine. You, me or anyone else in a democracy deciding that because we are really convinced it's somebody's time, that we can then use our position of power to rig that outcome. How much more tragic when that Presidential candidate may have resulted in a Democrat like Bernie Sanders. Piling on the tragedy is the likelihood that a Sanders presidency could've brought a Democratic majority in the Senate and the House.
It was not just an attempt to repudiate the republican candidate; it was a message soaked in a superiority complex dressed up as political savvy and delivered by messengers who seemed to all stop taking their anxiety meds after the primary was over. They are a posse of frantic doomsday preachers whose empty rhetoric helped cement the Trump presidency, and now that he has won they are doubling down by protesting democracy itself.

By pushing further and further to the right, the Republican leadership laid the groundwork for a blustering, racist, sexist demagogue to win the nomination. And in doing so, they undermined the possibility of finding a reasonable, moderate candidate within their own ranks. When every Republican candidate has to swear fealty to a rightwing credo, is it really surprising that this year's field of presidential wannabes was so pathetically weak?
I've got aging on my mind right now. Last Spring I celebrated a not insignificant birthday. Who am I kidding? They're all significant now. A few months ago I watched Isabel Allende's Ted Talk on living passionately at 71. It really inspired me. I've done a lot of thinking about age and aging since, and I've come to the following conclusions.
As astrology predicted, what happened during the conjunction of Uranus and Pluto in the '60s, would manifest globally when these two planets reached their first square. If you haven't heard, we just came out of a three-year period (2012 to 2015) where we experienced seven exact squares of Uranus and Pluto!
He could have chosen a different path in support of principle and conviction by offering a viable alternative to those who are not satisfied with how things are going. He could have risen to the challenge by forming an alternative to both Trump and Clinton.

The Vermont senator vows his "revolution" will continue.
Here's a thought, Bernie. You could decide you're forming a new party: The Progressive Party, say. Millions of donations would carry you, millions of independents would cheer and vote for you. Progressives would run for Congress. The U.S. political culture would finally gain a progressive flag to wave -- for a long time into the future.

The talk on corporately owned mainstream media (MSM) is of a historic moment on Tuesday, when, if you count Hillary's 400 plus superdelegates, her total number can go above the needed 2383, and, the talk goes, she becomes the Democrats' presumptive nominee -- the first woman to win a nomination for president. Yes, this would be something to celebrate. If true.

Bernie Sanders' candidacy, one that was largely written off before it was even off the ground, has irked the Democrat establishment and front-runner Hillary Clinton almost as much as it has inspired millions of Americans to see beyond the bells and whistles of a typical presidential campaign.

It's almost summertime and that means it's time to choose some books to read at the beach, at the cottage or, if you're running for president, on the campaign trail. Here's what this year's candidates say they're currently reading and what books are actually sitting on their nightstands.

America was so preoccupied with fear that it made the entire world afraid. We were all so terrified of each other that our silent killer slipped into our homes without protest. They say that there were some people who tried to warn us... but we didn't listen, and we paid the price.
If you are hiring summer students, have teenagers slouching around the house, or you are a forward-thinking CEO, you are spending some time thinking about Gen Z. The follow-on generation to the Millennials is something of an unknown to most. The biggest question: how they are going to perform in the workforce?
