The Tao of Politics

One of my main concerns is: how can I make a difference? There are thousands of political blogs out there. It’s easy to get lost in that ocean. So I may blog about politics on occasion, or I may blog about health issues, depending on where my interests lead me, and where I feel I can contribute something of significance.

Greenland’s two mile thick ice sheet is melting faster than it was five years ago.

In this video, Davis Guggenheim interviews Al Gore.

50,000 Iraqis have died since the US invasion of their country in 2003. This is 20,000 more people dead than previously acknowledged. And this, just like the 2500+ American troops dead, is not just a number, but represents actual human deaths, thanks in great part to the actions of George War Bush and Duck! Cheney. The Iraqis are humans too, and they deserve for us to leave so that the killing, for them, can stop. It’s not just about us.

People in Cyprus used to be very healthy. Then the United States exported its appallingly bad diet to the Cypriot people. Now Cyprus suffers from alarming rates of obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. In short, they’re becoming just like the Americans.

As if this really matters, with all the bad stuff out there in the environment, in our food, etc, lemons are said to help fight cancer. Doesn’t the Mediterranean diet use a lot of lemons? Oh, but that’s right, the Mediterranean diet is disappearing, being supplanted by the American diet. USA! USA!

Speaking of pollution, there was a disturbing story about San Francisco, autism, and mercury pollution. See what I mean? You can just be minding your own business, living in one of the nicest areas of the country, and something sinister can be lurking in the environment that can ruin all that.

This is probably what disturbs me the most: you cannot be careful enough to avoid all the stuff out there that can kill you or that can make you sick. Furthermore, NO ONE IS ACCOUNTABLE! This may be the largest crime in history. And the deaths are all chalked up to “natural causes” when in reality they are probably caused by industrialization, hardly natural.
