Help Lee & McGovern End the War in Afghanistan


I signed a petition to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama which says:

"President Obama should seek explicit Congressional approval before signing any agreement to keep thousands of U.S. troops in Afghanistan indefinitely for a new mission after 2014. Members of Congress should support efforts led by Barbara Lee, Jim McGovern, and Walter Jones to force a Congressional debate and vote on whether to keep thousands of U.S. troops in Afghanistan."

I just signed this, you should too.

The NSA has far too much power to spy on innocent Americans without any meaningful oversight. It's gotten so bad that even one of the original ultra-conservative authors of the Patriot Act, Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, joined with progressive stalwart Rep. John Conyers and Senator Patrick Leahy in introducing a bipartisan NSA reform bill. It's a good first step, and we need to show the House and the Senate that there's popular support for Congress starting the process of restoring our constitutional rights.

I just signed this petition -- will you?

 I just took action to demand that the New York Times and Washington Post follow the lead of the L.A. Times and adopt policies of refusing to publish any letters to the editor or other content that denies climate change. I think you should too. http://www.credomobilize.com/petitions/tell-the-washington-post-and-new-york-times-don-t-promote-climate-change-denial?sp_ref=16592132.4.941.e.0.2&source=mailto_sp

The award, named after the most famous extinct species on Earth, is given out every year.

This year has brought many threats to imperiled species and wildlands and many deserving winners to choose from. Vote now and invite your friends. Voting closes at midnight Oct. 30.

My Mother Was Killed by a U.S. Drone


I signed a petition to U.S. Department of State which says:

"In 2012, my 67 year-old Mother was killed by a U.S. drone strike, and now the State Department is preventing us from sharing our story with the American public and Legislature.

Please urge the Department of State to immediately approve a visa for our lawyer, Shahzad Akbar, so that he may escort my family to the United States and allow Congress to hear the first hand account of what it is like living under drones."

My response to the DFA. #syria #assad #chemicalweapons

US military intervention in Syria will damage US reputation and the economy. It is an unwarranted intervention that Congress is not likely to approve, and it will not make Americans safer. Instead it will expose the the country to the same blowback and hostility that we have been seeing for more than 10 years. This is not the right time for the US to police international agreements. Finally, US military intervention is not supported by the American people. This plan should be set aside, for more pressing matters.
