By Jeremy Bloom For the season opener of Saturday Night Live, they got in a few digs at Hillary Clinton… and she got a few back. Turns out she’s actually really likable in person… And she’d love to take down Donald Trump… and the Keystone XL pipeline. 🙂 https://youtu.be/NV2nbVESJzc

By Jeremy Bloom President Obama is taking the climate change battle to the front lines in Alaska, where the disruption and destruction of global warming is at its most visible. As the President himself points out in the accompanying video, “Climate change once seemed like a problem for future generations. But for most Americans, it’s […]
Greetings from Aurora, Colorado, where we are joining a crowd of thousands for a big closing campaign rally by President Barack Obama. Capacity here is 20,000, and it looks like we’re going to reach that easily – which will make this the largest rally of Colorado’s election season. (Update – yes, this ended up being […]
Documenting the atrocities…. a comprehensive take-down video.
Mitt Romney is getting hammered this week as he tries to have it both ways: Either he’s the active CEO with the business skills to fix America’s problems, or he’s the passive investor who sits on the sidelines but can’t be held responsible for the creative destruction his companies wreaked, from Massachusetts to California. Now, the Obama […]
Is the message about sustainable agriculture finally breaking through? Watch this Chipotle-sponsored video, “Cultivate a Better World”, with a soundtrack by Willy Nelson(singing Radiohead!), and see what you think.
By David Brin Watch this segment of Neil deGrasse Tyson about America’s decline amid the changing landscape of modern science. I mean it. Watch this and make your uncles and cousins watch it. Half of our economic growth since WWII came from science and technology. This last decade was the first in 60 years in which the […]
They’re actually doing it – they’re making a movie of Dr. Seuss’ marvelous eco-fable, The Lorax.
And while Occupy Wall Street may speak for the 99 percent… of humans in the US (and maybe even on the planet), there hasn’t been much said so far about the 80 percent – which is how much of the planet’s biomass trees represent.
Well, when Danny DeVito speaks, people tend to listen, and Zac Efron and Taylor Swift are almost as cute animated as they are in real life…
Academy Award-winning director Jonathan Demme has taken his crew to Occupy Wall Street. In a tight, 15 minute short documentary, he illustrates democracy in action and peaceful protest. Can’t make it to lower Manhattan this week? Let Jonathan Demme’s camera take you there… Like what you just saw? Like us on Facebook for more updates! More on […]
Well, you know… we all want to change the world. But as we work through the next weeks, it’s important to remember where we’ve been, so we can get where we actually want to go, and not get steered down another dead end. One of the wonderful things about this revolution is the […]
Add one more wealthy voice to the mix supporting occupy Wall Street. Willy Nelson and his wife, Annie D’Angelo, have written a poem in support of the Occupy movement. (Video at the end, if you can ‘t wait…) We are the ones with the 99 We stand with humanity Against the insanity We’re the ones […]
Bill Maher got a great rant going at the end of yesterdays show. He just skewers the right-wingers who are (so far unsuccessfully) trying to frame Occupy Wall Street as a bunch of lazy hippies – rather than the reality, that it is an amazingly diverse cross-section of real America. Here’s what he has to […]
What an amazing creative out-pouring we’ve seen over the past few weeks! Now the folks who brought us The Story of Stuff animated short film are in the final stages of preparing their explanation – and they’re program for a sustainable future.
The Story of Broke talks about the myth that America is out of money… pushed by the dinosaurs who have failed, but are too big to adapt and move on.
As they put it, “The United States isn’t broke; we’re the richest country on the planet and a country in which the richest among us are doing exceptionally well. But the truth is, our economy is broken, producing more pollution, greenhouse gasses and garbage than any other country. In these and so many other ways, it just isn’t working. …The Story of Broke calls for a shift in government spending toward investments in clean, green solutions…
On Saturday night in Times Square, Iraq veteran Sgt Shamar Thomas made an impression on New York Police, in an impassioned plea for reason and calm that deflected the angry violence they were bringing to bear on the Occupy Wall Street protesters who had surged through Times Square. “There is no honor in this” Today, Sgt. […]
One thing keeps cropping up as people talk about Occupy Wall Street and why they’re so angry: Corporations have complete dominance of the political process. Thanks to the Supreme Court overturning 90 years of precedent and tossing out all restrictions on corporate political contributions, they can now spend unlimited amounts of money to elect or defeat any politician they choose.
Didn’t know that corporate campaign spending had been turned into a giant free-for-all? That was the Citizens United decision, which changed our political system in huge ways, and it’s why a lot of us are going out today and marching for a society in which people have as much say as corporations.
