Good. I hope he stays on the national stage as long as he can. And, who knows? (Remember when folks swore Obama would never beat Hils?)
 
"We are witnessing the largest upsurge of economic populism in recent American history. The fight for a $15 minimum wage, the opposition to the Trans Pacific Partnership, the avowed concern about widening inequality even among Republican candidates, and the surging popularity of Senator +Bernie Sanders all give evidence.

Unlike the Occupy Movement, which eschewed politics, this new movement is committed to political change. Does it herald a fundamental change in America?" -- #RobertReich -- https://www.facebook.com/RBReich/posts/1022057027806893

If you're feeling down on your dreams today, Patti Smith has something to say about that. In 2012, the punk rock icon spoke to a group of young people about what life is really about. Her speech may be a few years old, but her message is a timeles...

"Noam Chomsky: How Climate Change Became a 'Liberal Hoax'
In this sixth video in the series "Peak Oil and a Changing Climate" from The Nation and On The Earth Productions, linguist, philosopher and political activist Noam Chomsky talks about the Chamber of Commerce, the American Petroleum Institute and other business lobbies enthusiastically carrying out campaigns "to try and convince the population that global warming is a liberal hoax." According to Chomsky, this massive public relations campaign has succeeded in leading a good portion of the population into doubting the human causes of global warming.

"Known for his criticism of the media, Chomsky doesn't hold back in this clip, laying blame on mainstream media outlets such as the New York Times, which will run frontpage articles on what meteorologists think about global warming. "Meteorologists are pretty faces reading scripts telling you whether it's going to rain tomorrow," Chomsky says. "What do they have to say any more than your barber?" All this is part of the media's pursuit of "fabled objectivity."

"Of particular concern for Chomsky is the atmosphere of anger, fear and hostility that currently reigns in America. The public's hatred of Democrats, Republicans, big business and banks and the public's distrust of scientists all lead to general disregard for the findings of "pointy-headed elitists." The 2010 elections could be interpreted as a "death knell for the species" because most of the new Republicans in Congress are global warming deniers. "If this was happening in some small country," Chomsky concludes, "it wouldn't matter much. But when it's happening in the richest, most powerful country in the world, it's a danger to the survival of the species." "

Here's the deal!  Coal ash coats the picnic table outside and  you have to wash it before you can eat there.  But you are pulling particulate matter into your lungs that cannot be washed away and the contents found in the coal ash is really dangerous and has a tremendous potential to threaten human health.
