Hmm ... lemme see: he
Promoted compassion
Back in the day when it
Wasn't exactly in fashion.

I wrote a series of poems about someone who died recently ... someone close to me ... and about my perception of the human race ...

1.

As I sit here in the darkness
I wonder whence man's travesty will ever end
Death, murder, suicide, hunger, depravity, poverty
All ignored as we make this journey thru life

At last our dying Mother Earth has taken center stage.

Thanks to Al Gore's global concert, the major media are finally filling with coverage of the climate crisis. It all comes with a dire dual realization: our economy will collapse, and we could all die, if something drastic is not done. But what?

Instead of painting herself into a corner and forever being remembered for saying that "Impeachment is off the table"-- it's time for Nancy Pelosi to say to the Republicans in Congress, "We're ready when you are."

Some people believe global warming is a hoax. Or they think it's just a petty matter for tree-hugging radicals to fret about. Or they think it's a partisan issue, raised only by the extreme left wing.

Well, the cat got out of the bag early as it so often does. I was going to announce on July 10 (my 50th birthday) before our Journey for Humanity that I would run against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) if she didn't put impeachment back on the table before our tour reached DC on July 23. Impeachment was never hers to take off the table as it is a Constitutional remedy for BushCo, not an optional smorgasbord choice. However, the story was leaked to the AP and we couldn't keep the big announcement under wraps.

Once again the American media, so quick to hype absurdly improbable risks and disasters such as West Nile Virus or Ebola outbreaks, has ignored a real one: in this case, the likelihood that global warming disaster is much more imminent than the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report has led us to believe.

The latest poll by American Research Group that 54 percent of Americans favor impeaching Vice President Dick Cheney, and that 46 percent favor impeaching President Bush, is encouraging news for impeachment advocates. Despite a corporate media blackout on impeachment that means almost nobody in the country knows that there is already a Cheney impeachment bill in the House with 14 co-sponsors (HR 333), over half the country nonetheless wants Cheney to get the boot.

Cynthia Bogard: Goracle Rising

I had the feeling the first time I saw An Inconvenient Truth. I had it when I read The Assault on Reason. I had it again when I saw his understated, partially holographic presence at Live Earth.
