"No challenge poses a greater threat to future generations than climate change."
The President's Science Advisor Answers Your Climate Questions
6,845 Americans Died and 900,000 Were Injured in Iraq and Afghanistan. Say 'No' to Obama's War. President Obama is asking for a new war against ISIS. According to Foreign Policy, Obama's request to Congress is vague, includes "limited ground troops," and fails to address any solution to the bloody divide between Sunni and Shia in Iraq. If we haven't defeated "terror" after over a decade of two wars that will cost up to $6 trillion then what makes Obama think we'll be victorious this time? Read more at huffingtonpost.com
Negotiations are taking place behind closed doors right now that could mean the loss of thousands of manufacturing and automotive jobs, yet not a lot of people are talking about it. The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal would be devastating to our economy here in Michigan and across the country. Please take a couple of minutes and watch the video below from former Labor Secretary Robert Reich to learn a bit more about the TPP, who really benefits from it, and the effects it would have on our country. Make no mistake, if fast-tracked is passed, TPP would hurt our competitiveness and contribute to a race to the bottom in wages and exports. Dan Kildee.
The new revelations about the Bush administration's secret torture program are sickening. But today, one of the key legal architects of the torture program, former White House counsel Alberto Gonzales, is the dean of a Christian law school. Gonzales has never apologized or repented for his role in drafting and approving the infamous memos that provided the administration's legal justification for torture. Tell Christian university: Torture is unchristian. Fire Alberto Gonzales.

Obama's SOTU promoting higher taxes on the wealthy, infrastructure spending, and free community college was ALL SHOW (and NO GO). There is no chance any of it will pass. Why didn't he propose these things when there was a Democratic majority in congress 6 years ago? Meanwhile he is the primary sponsor of the Trans Pacific Partnership (or SHAFTA, the South American - Asian free trade agreement), which promises to be worse for us than Nafta. Let's see if he vetos any of the Republican agenda. He already signed on for derivative de-regulation in last December's budget deal. Sheldon Wolberg

Dear lovers and defenders of Democracy, We all give to charities that provide aid and support and vital assistance on so many levels, this time of year. We write letters and speak as advocates and support good candidates who share our vision.

Their addresses are on Google. Jeanne Korsh
