Can Time Inc. Survive the Kochs? November 28, 2017 By
..."This year, among the Kochs’ aims is to spend a projected four hundred million dollars in contributions from themselves and a small group of allied conservative donors they have assembled, to insure Republican victories in the 2018 midterm elections. Ordinarily, political reporters for Time magazine would chronicle this blatant attempt by the Kochs and their allies to buy political influence in the coming election cycle. Will they feel as free to do so now?"...

New campaign starts to ban all nuclear weapons

Needed now more than ever...

From ICAN: International Campaign to Ban Nuclear Weapons

A new, creative campaign, nuclearban.us, has been launched to move the US toward banning all nuclear weapons. 


Until the United States signs, ratifies and implements this Treaty, WE THE PEOPLE can be working through our cities and towns, schools, businesses, unions and faith communities to comply with this Treaty - and you yourself can sign up to become personally Treaty Compliant right here, right now!

From the campaign website:
"On July 7th, 2017, the countries of the United Nations adopted, by 122 to 1, the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. ICAN - the International Campaign for the Abolition of Nuclear Weapons - was awarded the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize for spearheading this effort.

The new Treaty makes nuclear weapons illegal. The question is no longer 'do we need them?' or 'should we have them?' but 'how will we get rid of them?' The Treaty lays out the steps to achieve the total elimination of all nuclear weapons. We now have to come to terms with this new reality."...
