The Sower’s Way

There are huge problems trying to understand a transition to sustainable energy in terms of politics. Who is for; who is against; what corporate business models would it screw up? Oh, Jobs! Oh, Economy! Not in this election, because THIS election is CRITICAL! We have more IMMEDIATE problems to deal with!

That’s why the Green Party candidate for President is the¬†only candidate trying to make this an issue in the election. The other candidates, supported wholeheartedly by the corporate press, ignore, evade and dismiss the issue or occasionally make rhetorical gestures not substantiated by actual policy.

Essentially, there is so much BS on the subject that trying to approach it from a political angle is like Grant’s army trying to approach Vicksburg by wading through swamps. It’s a hopeless task. We had better find another route. Continue reading


Why Jill Stein Has My Vote

Jill Event 1

I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the event mentioned in the image above. Two highlights for the day – accidentally got to met Green Party VP Candidate Ajamu Braka back stage when I went out to get some stuff out of the car and we got to hear Jill Stein’s stump speech live and direct.

Some people will vote for Jill because of her New Green Deal plan which involves a massive national effort a la FDR’s New Deal in which we will not only make a massive shift toward renewable energy in the US, but also employ lots of people doing so. Sure, I like that.

Some people will vote for Jill because she believe WATER IS A HUMAN right and she will do everything in her power to protect and preserve what we have as well as make fresh, safe drinking water available to everyone. Yup, I gotta agree with this.

Others find her plan to slash military spending in half and use that money to help forgive student debt and pay for college tuition for those who want to attend college. That is certainly an admirable position.

Those people who have been crushed by medical debt will not doubt support her promise to provide single payer health care – health insurance for ALL – to the only developed nation on the planet that does not year have it. I can get behind this since I am still paying for cancer treatment I received in 2012.

Jill Stein & Ajamu Baraka in Detroit.

Her promise to end our failed War on Drugs will no doubt resonate with thousands of people from all walks of life and all political persuasions. Works for me.

Her rejection of Political Action Committee bucks and her refusal to take Corporate Money in her campaign speaks volumes to Bernie Sanders supporters and to anyone smart enough to decry the ridiculous influence of money in politics. Amen, sister!

All Green Party Candidates are PAC Free!

All of those reasons are great. Jill’s vision that ALL of us are interconnected and of equal importance is music to my ears. Speaking of music – now we are getting to the one thing Jill did in Detroit that sealed my vote – She jammed on the congas with a stage full of Detroit’s most talented musicians.

Way to go Jill – you got me!

Jill Stein is NOT anti-vaccine use.


Having encountered this rumor from a college student, I thought we might address here.

Rather than argue the point, I will refer readers to They are certainly non-partisan when it comes to de-bunking or proving internet “truths” such as this one.

Snopes gives it a “False”. They even went so far as to contact Dr. Stein via Twitter and Jill answered with this: “As a medical doctor of course I support vaccinations. I have a problem with the FDA being controlled by drug companies.”

Here is the Snopes like so you can read it yourself: Jill Stein on Vaccines
