Sanders and any other Senator who didn’t show up for amendment vote should be ashamed.
Pretty much America right now.
“Free” is a bold headline, as it’s pay-what-you-can and the money does go to the artists. Definitely worth checking out. Some of my favorite bands of all time.
An excellent historical look at the lengths politicians have gone to shore up white (and usually male) minority power.
This is Zoey’s fifth year playing youth/girls hockey and my second as a volunteer. I’m so glad she has role models like Kendall Coyne and the Buffalo Beauts to look up to every time she steps on the ice.
Between this and climate change, the only moral and logical choice is a Green New Deal. Any argument against is simply (short-term fossil fuel industry) profits over people.
Such a good conversation.
Comes out April 3rd. I dig it.
Great interview. This makes me love @sharonvanetten even more. Hope she comes to Buffalo some day.
One of my fave albums of all time. Will be listening today.
The ultimate aim of society should be to make sure that people are not targeted, not harassed, and not murdered because of who they are, where they come from, who they love, or how they pray.
Or more simply, the algorithm:
You can find yourself wondering why you’re seeing this now — or knowing too well why it is so. You can feel amazing and awful — exult in and be repelled by life — in the space of seconds.
Shady at best, criminal at worst.
SO good. I don’t know how she plays Seventeen every night.
Extreme weather events, melting arctic ice, and species extinction expose the lie that growth can forever be prioritized over planetary boundaries.
“Fundamentally, it is a business model that is flawed —- capitalism is still functioning on the premise of endless resources.”
Also, endless growth and endless waste. None of which are sustainable. Yes, capitalism has improved the quality of life for many people. It has also left many behind – through inequality, oppression, and overwork.
Between inequality, climate change, and resource depletion something needs to change. I doubt America would ever go for socialism, so I am hoping for some kind of compassionate capitalism that blends elements of capitalism, socialism, and social justice. It’s going to take a bold vision and a lot of work – just hope we’re up for it. Time is running out before huge change is forced upon us by nature.
Just as an official impeachment inquiry of President Trump begins, a new study finds 38% of Americans were already stressed out by politics, with 11.5% saying they’re so stressed it’s making them physically ill, even if only a little.
I’ve talked to numerous friends about this subject. Based on the responses, I’d guess those numbers are low. I’m definitely in both categories.
This took me back to high school and freshman year of college. Absolutely love this album.
Crucial listening. Please give up 45 minutes of your life each week to follow this series. We grow as a country when we learn about the lives and history of our most marginalized.
Super good list.
Visit for the amazing art, stay for the vision of a forward thinking economy and just society that tackles climate change head on.
