Between them, doctors Jill Stein and Margaret Flowers have been arrested nine times. In the face of injustice in America, rather than look the other way and stick to practicing medicine, they decided to do something about it.

Stein and Flowers serve as president and secretary of health, respectively, for the Green Shadow Cabinet, a new organization formed to speak out against dysfunctional government and offer alternative policies. Each fights against political corruption and a host of grievances that that have led many people to cynicism and despair. […]

  5. Presenting anything to the UN is a total waste of time. We know who controls the UN. As for politicians, make them live with the disadvantaged for a good year, let them experience that which they expect the populace to have to live with. One requirement for becoming a politician: come from a disadvantaged background. Limit the term Senators and Congressmen can serve – reduce corruption. Right to vote a democracy does not make.

  6. Can’t help but consider what a stark contrast these highly intelligent and principled women present in comparison to Hillary Clinton. It seems that former law professor Elizabeth Warren is gaining a lot of attention these days, though.

    I don’t have any snappy answer to all this political shenaniganology, but I do know that we need some honest people with visionary brains & more sincere joy in the US White House, not just the make-believe TPP puppetry cut-outs of genetically-toxic-bullshit merchants.

    In a “bipolar” world ~ and I mean manically-depressive ~ that flashmob rendition of Beethoven’s astonishing Ode, certainly touches a sensitive nerve ~ it is after all, the official anthem of the European Union and the Council of Europe & we Europeans need all the joy we can muster these days…

    • From Sen Warren’s website:

      “I support the approach President Obama – joined by a bipartisan consensus in Congress – has taken in working to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. A nuclear Iran would be a threat to the United States, our allies, the region, and the world. I support strong economic sanctions in conjunction with other countries that have placed serious political pressure on Iran, as well as vigorous diplomacy to try to resolve the situation through negotiations. Like the President, I believe that careless talk of rushing to war is unhelpful, and, like the President, I believe the United States must take the necessary steps to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon.”

      Glad you enjoyed the Flash Mob video, too, David. Absolutely moving. Music is so powerful.

      • Indeed it is. Thanks Lo for this mind-boggling Warren statement. peskyvera is doubtless right ~ actually, maybe not; this law Professor shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near the Senate by the sound of this “careless talk.” Personally I think sanctions are evil, so she certainly doesn’t get my vote of confidence.

        People who advocate such cruel measures as a political instrument of malicious “enforcement” should go live the experience & get real ~ that will change their creature-comfortable minds…that is, unless they are totally convinced sick babies & scant medicine for all are the necessary bane of “higher civilization…”

        • Sanctions are an act of war, in my opinion, not to mention incredibly unethical, like you mentioned the deaths of children. I could not support/vote for Elizabeth Warren as a Senator or a president.
