Oil Billionaire Demands University of Oklahoma Fire Scientists for Exposing Fracking Risks

Why millions of Americans trust the oil industry on matters of environmental sciences baffles me. It’s easily one of the most corrupt industries on the planet, yet millions of Americans blindly act as if there’s nothing unethical about anything that they do. I’ve often compared big oil to big tobacco from just a few decades […]

Bill Pushed by Texas Republicans, Big Oil, Disgustingly Sets Out to Directly Undermine Democracy

In this country we have several ways in which we use our voting power. We elect House representatives to represent each of our individual districts; we elect senators to represent our state; and we let the popular vote within each state determine which presidential candidate gets that state’s electoral votes, which ultimately decides who becomes […]

Nebraska Farmer Humiliates Big Oil Committee, Asks Them to Drink Water Polluted by Fracking (Video)

While I’m too young to remember the peak of big tobacco’s true absurdity (“doctor recommended” cigarettes, “scientific” evidence “proving” smoking isn’t unhealthy), I can’t help but feel we’re seeing almost the exact same level of ridiculousness from big oil today.

Texas Town Known as ‘The Birthplace of Fracking’ Passes Ban on Controversial Process Loved by Big Oil

Despite all the bad news coming from election night, there was some good news for liberals or pretty much anyone who wants to protect the environment. Voters in Denton, Texas, the place where fracking was invented, voted to ban the process that many claim is extremely harmful to the environment. Over 25K votes were cast, […]

Cindy Sheehan: Headlines of the Near Future

Although I can’t escape the imperial goings on around the globe — unconditional peace always being my main focus and motivation — I am running for governor of California. However, if California is managed correctly we could easily be a global force for awesomeness (had to say it, since I am a “Valley Girl”). So, […]

Would You Vote For This Candidate?

I come from an increasingly dying breed of political activists.  I’m someone who urges compromise while it seems much of the country has allowed the words to be a symbol for “weakness” and “defeat.” We claim that we want a functioning government, yet continue to elect more partisan politicians than ever before.  While I see […]
