“Maybe it's not the drones over Afghanistan that should worry us most. While we rightly consider those, an army of drones proliferates right over our heads in the Western world. I think we should be most concerned about that.”

“Thanks for mentioning the irregularities of the jet stream. No doubt, you're also concerned about climate change. I only checked out a few comments above yours, and was beginning to believe climate change was not an issue for anyone here.”

“Oh ya I am very concerned about it.. Even more restless because it's become a corporate political bench mark. irony here is that the U.S is the slowest one to recipricate real change. The rest of the world is doing their darn best and all we do is talk. It is becaues the rest of the world doesn't have the besotted selfish oll industry on it's shores. They practically buy the government here. While we in the states can argue till the next droubt other nations more vulnerable to the slightest changes can't afford that dithering. They already suffer huge society wide wipe outs. The middle east and northern Africa, South east Asia are being hammered. Our news tell us this upheavel is over religion.. In reallity is over survival . And yes when men are desperate they will cling to their religion and guns.. But should we not ask what made them desperate in the first place? climate change did. ”

“It involves a lot of personal stress and sacrifice to protest on the streets. Whatever they are, they don't sound like losers to me. .Neither were the Egyptians, despite their terrible reversals of late.”

“The media has worked VERY HARD to discredit anyone who doesn't "go along to get along".

In the coming months, you will see an INCREASE in the number of people "charged" with child pornography, and the people you will see charged, are the very ones who are the most vocal about our government's policies and actions. Their names and their reputations will be SMEARED and RUINED in the media, they will be forced to do the "PERP WALK" when in fact they are innocent.

People are being harassed, threatened, and intimidated in RECORD NUMBERS, and for what? FOR SPEAKING OUT, that's what. For getting the FACTS.

And especially for REFUSING TO GO ALONG TO GET ALONG!

When you hear of someone that you once admired, someone that is fighting for DEMOCRACY, CIVIL RIGHTS, someone who is fighting against CORPORATE GREED and MALFEASANCE, and when you hear of their being "charged" with an evil crime? When you think to yourself, "Wow, I never would have guessed", when you believe the worst about someone just because you read it in Mainstream Media?

That's how you know that person is really doing SOME GOOD in the world!”

“It's a good question. The population was less than half what it is now. The global ecosystem was relatively intact. An effective and visionary president was on board. We are in a much more dire place today.

Imagination often guides action. We can imagine a world where JFK lived, the Civil Rights bill enacted, the environment spared, the Viet Nam war squelched. Why can't we go back to that (imaginary) point, and start all over, conceptually, setting aside all the post 1963 dysfunction? Could that provide a template for concerted, unified action to resist ensuing collapse?”

“Well that was a particular case that seemed contrary to the thrust of the article. But I agree with you in general. Among the atheists that I know, I get a sense of anger at and contempt for believers. So what's the solution? Atheists have every right to their belief (or non belief), but they also are, de facto, separated from the large swathe of humanity, who are believers. I suppose atheists tend to believe that if they were more in charge, and if the evangelicals (and/or other believers) would vanish, the world would be a better place. I just don't see where the world has time for this sort of schism just now (with so many crises to resolve), but I don't have a solution for it.”

“Possibly. And we may also fail to energize average people who could well have a better sense (in their bones) of the interrelationships than the intelligentsia could imagine. But I guess climate change is the one for which scientists have the best and most troubling measurements?”

Steve Sortino on Nov 8, 2013 at 22:10:00

“Well - it's the one that definitely gets people going more than anything else, but there are VERY troubling measurements elsewhere. I also agree that the vitriol is turning off many people who are going to be required as part of any solution. Many of them, yes, could be geniuses that might've helped solved the problem with innovation.”

“Collapse of the biosphere's ability to sustain life often falls under the heading of climate change. But it is more likely a perfect storm that includes chemical pollution, soil damage, ocean death, deforestation, economic collapse...every aspect of life--physical and social-- under and affected by industrial civilization.”

“There are always other issues. But that doesn't make abortion rights (or women's rights or civil rights) go away or become less immediate.”

Armando Bendito on Nov 7, 2013 at 18:32:05

“Rush's point is simply that the Democrat party can blow the dog whistle of abortion rights and thereby make inaudible arguments concerning other issues. Because Democrats can't win on issues like the economy, education, crime, etctera, to the degree they can win on abortion, the Democrats have every incentive to raise the issue of abortion at every chance they get. Thus, with the constant whistleblowing, the constant drumbeat, one would have the impression (the wrong impression according to Rush) that women care only about abortion.

I don't think Rush is making an argument about the merits of abortion. Nor is he saying that women only care about abortion. Rather, he is merely stating that if you followed politics casually then you would have the impression that women only care about abortion, that women are "abortion machines." He's saying that's an insult to women. But, because the abortion issue is a political winner for Democrats the abortion issue will continue to be prominent.”

“Wall Street executives broke the law and hurt millions of people. Were any of them arrested and made to die in jail? Arguably (VERY arguably) someone smoking pot hurts nobody but themselves. Why does a possibly harmless substance warrant prison and death? What should happen when laws are unjust? Even if a law is just and somebody breaks it, do they deserve to be so callously treated that they die?”
