TRIP DOWN HISTORY LANE

HOW DID IT BEGIN?

It seems that a lot of effort has been placed in the celebration of our planet, Mother Earth.

In the United States, the ‘Environmental Protection Agency‘ was created to assure that norms and regulations were put in place to do this country’s part in the worldwide effort to protect this planet.

At the time of this writing, it looks like all those efforts are in the process of dismantling by the current EPA top official in association with the Executive branch of the current government.

That cannot be allowed. Grassroot efforts must be undertaken once again to assure that Mother Earth is protected.

In this instance, history MUST repeat itself.

Remember, there is no ‘Planet B’!

 “We need the tonic of wildness – to wade sometimes in marshes where the bittern and the meadow-hen lurk, and hear the booming of the snipe; to smell the whispering sedge where only some wilder and more solitary fowl builds her nest, and the mink crawls with its belly close to the ground. At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be infinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.”

~Henry David Thoreau~

EARTH DAY 2018

~THERE’S A LOT DO TO STILL~

I was 20 years old in 1970.

I remember the establishment of this day. I took a summer class in college all about the environment in my country, Puerto Rico. I bought books, I read them all. I became aware of Bill McKibben (The End of Nature), Jeffrey Hollender (How To Make the World a Better Place), The Earthworks Group (50 Simple Things You Can Do series) and many more.

I was young, idealistic adult and a believer that my generation would change things.

As I look back today, it saddens me to see that I was wrong.

More than ever, there’s a lot of work to do today.

Here are some of my ‘green books’!! 

img_8875 Earth Day 1970, an event to increase public awareness of the world’s environmental problems, is celebrated in the United States for the first time.

Millions of Americans, including students from thousands of colleges and universities, participated in rallies, marches, and educational programs.

Earth Day was the brainchild of Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin, a staunch environmentalist who hoped to provide unity to the grassroots environmental movement and increase ecological awareness.

“The objective was to get a nationwide demonstration of concern for the environment so large that it would shake the political establishment out of its lethargy,” Senator Nelson said, “and, finally, force this issue permanently onto the national political agenda.”

Earth Day indeed increased environmental awareness in America, and in July of that year the Environmental Protection Agency was established by special executive order to regulate and enforce national pollution legislation.

CORRUPTION RUNS IN THE FAMILY 

First, the Daughter, then the Mother, then the Father

I was wondering last night, when the news of the confirmation came out, who was the Democratic senator who voted for Jeff Sessions.

It didn’t take long to find out this morning.

His name is John Manchin.

He’s a ‘so-called Democrat” from the state of West Virginia.

Here’s the dirt on him and his wife.

Remember the EpiPen hoopla from a while ago?

Turns out it wasn’t only the ‘PharmaGuy“!

There’s a ‘PharmaGal“!

Welcome to the New America, where anything can be bought!

Sad reality!

~Democratic Senator Voted To Confirm Career Racist Sessions~

John Prager on February 9, 2017 5:19 am ·
Apparently, West Virginia Democrat – not to be confused with real Democrats – Joe Manchin effectively told voter he doesn’t want his job anymore when he was the only person supposedly on “our side” who voted to confirm lifetime racist and embarrassment to humanity Jeff Sessions as Attorney General.

Manchin, who reportedly considered switching to Republican just after the 2016 election (though he denies it), has been on the wrong side of history many times in his career. Not only did he vote with Republicans to terminate funding for Planned Parenthood after right-wing “activists” produced heavily-edited propaganda videos that claimed the women’s health organization sells “baby parts,” but he is so deep in the pockets of the coal industry that the lint is jealous.

On top of that, Manchin has been endorsed by the NRA and has supported legislation that sought to prevent the EPA from regulating greenhouse gas.

While Manchin has been criticized for all of that in the past, his decision to support a career racist for Attorney General is bringing a sh*tstorm his way that he seems to have failed to anticipate.

~Senator’s Wife Used Education Position To Boost Daughter’s EpiPen Sales~

Robert Donachie

September 20, 2016

Finance Reporter

 

The wife of a prominent US Senator, Gail Manchin, used her position as head of the National Association of State Boards of Education (NASB) to boost her daughter’s EpiPen sales, according to recent reports

EpiPen, short for epinephrine injection, is a life-saving auto-injection device for those with serious allergies that cause anaphylactic shock.

CEO Heather Bresch of Mylan, the company that makes EpiPen’s, caught flack after reports revealed Bresch raised the price of EpiPen’s 461 percent since acquiring the drug in 2007.

Further adding fuel to public outcry was the fact that Bresch’s salary rose from $2,453,456 in 2007 and skyrocketed 671 percent to $18,931,068 in 2015

Keystone Pipeline …. Time to veto, Mr. President!


Key

~~February 4, 2015~~ 

Today, the EPA came out and said that the tar sands oil transported by the Keystone XL pipeline would pose a number of risks, including potential oil spills and significant increases in greenhouse gas emissions.

It’s time to reject this pipeline once and for all!

Tell President Obama to keep his promise and VETO the KXL
