American Escape?

American-style democracy: The voters can almost unfailingly be counted on to vote against their own interests.

(Pender Island, British Columbia) - universal healthcare A few years ago I had a TIA—Transient Ischemic Attack—or mini-stroke. An ambulance arrived a few minutes later and I was transported to the Foothills Hospital in Calgary. (My out-of-pocket cost for this trip was $110 although I didn’t have to pay it until later.)

At the hospital a few hours later I had an MRI. I was in hospital for a total of five days. I did not have to pay anything for this—my out-of-pocket cost was $0. There was no deductible or co-pay. It’s called “universal health care”.

Failure of TrumpCare Incites Mixed Reactions

The Republican bill to repeal Obamacare has failed.

(SALEM, Ore.) - Paul Ryan House leaders cancelled today’s vote on the American Health Care Act, or “TrumpCare,” because the bill lacks the support to pass.

Oregon's Senator Jeff Merkley says now is the time to fix what's broken with ObamaCare. "Following today’s TrumpCare failure, it’s time for Republicans to cease and desist in their plans to destroy American health care. I’m happy to work with anyone, from either side of the aisle, to explore these or any other ideas that would improve health care for working Americans."

Merkley Calls on Americans to Resist Trump`s Dangerous Tilt Toward Authoritarianism

Senator denounces Trump’s attacks on judiciary and opponents, scapegoating of minorities

(WASHINGTON D.C.) - Senator Merkley "He has inflamed people’s anger toward immigrants, toward religious minorities, toward refugees. And he has undermined or attacked individuals who publicly stand up to him and the shortcomings of his policies,” Merkley said.

“These are strategies of authoritarian leaders throughout history, and are incompatible with our government. We must call out these strategies, and we must resist these strategies.”

Basil of Al-Walaja: RIP

Others will speak of his martyrdom; I will speak of his life and what he told me. Basil would have wanted it told this way.

(OCCUPIED PALESTINE) - Basil of Al-Walaja In 2009, I met Basil and Shireen and started joining them in demonstrations in Al-Walaja village. On 6 March 2017, Basil was murdered by the Israeli army. He was 31-years old.

"...we had so many problems...the displaced and the refugees, taking our water rights, the wall built on our land, home demolitions, apartheid, residency rights. Resistance is normal reaction [to this]... Palestine is a microcosm of the world, its history that of mankind. What happens here is an indicator of things to come around the world.”

Is America Circling the Drain (updated)?

I live in Canada, beyond the reach of Donald Trump's deportation forces. I have no plan to ever visit the U.S. in the rest of my lifetime.

(Pender Island, British Columbia) - circling the drain I was 15 in October 1962 when the Cuban Missile Crisis overwhelmed much of the world's consciousness.

As Oliver Stone commented in his series The untold history of the United States: “Children watched the news, their parents full of fear.” In my experience, the fear was palpable and seemingly everywhere.

Trump vs The Media

Mistrust of science and critical thinking in this country is a growing problem... one that a snake oil salesman knows and panders to.

(SAN FRANCISCO) - trump snake oil With the destruction of 16 primary challengers and a well-known political figure in his rear-view mirror, Trump has now zeroed in on his old opponent, the media. Why? Because the media is out to get him. Or maybe they are just fact checking.

During the primaries and general election, Trump's assault on the media was quite successful. He ran a media campaign directly against the media, helping himself to the copious media attention available to a TV star while disparaging journalists at every podium and venue.

Comfort the Afflicted

Look at the evidence provided and judge for yourself

(OCCUPIED PALESTINE) - Palestine We in occupied Palestine continue to be guardedly optimistic even after watching the Kafkaesque political "plays" being performed to confuse the public and keep them in the dark and keep them fighting each other while the RICH GET RICHER AND THE POOR GET POORER.

Remember to follow the money. But what we common people need to do is refuse the baiting, join hands, and think of the environment, sustainability, hope, love, kindness to one another (while yes exposing the myths and challenging the elites).
