California State Rep. Brad Sherman Has Egg on his Face

Rep. Brad Sherman (D) CA
California State  Rep. Brad Sherman (D) has proposed a ban on cryptocurrencies at a House Financial Services Meeting on February 13, 2018:

"We should prohibit U.S. persons from buying or mining cryptocurrencies," he said. "Mining alone uses electricity which takes away from other needs and-or adds to the carbon footprint. As a store, as a medium of exchange, cryptocurrency accomplishes nothing except facilitating narcotics trafficking, terrorism, and tax evasion."

But, it appears that Mr. Sherman may have other than altruistic reasons for his opposition to the application of block-chain technology to decentralized types of currency: A quick search of Representative Sherman, shows that his biggest campaign contributors for 2017-2018 are Capital Group CompaniesRoyal Business Bank, and Allied Wallet: all of which are providers of  international banking, investment, and credit card services.

Although Democrats often point fingers at Republicans when it comes to favoring big money and corporate donors, it appears that they themselves are not above the practice. Is it possible Mr. Sherman is working on behalf of his donors who are threatened by the very existence of cryptocurrencies? Representative Sherman, you appear to have egg on your face.

THE COST OF WAR

"The Cost of War" a meme by David Settino Scott - 2015
I decided to celebrate this Memorial Day by creating a meme to express my feelings about the unacceptable cost of war. Mother Earth didn't come with any political borders and, in my opinion, there shouldn't be any. Humans need to learn that we are all in the same boat: a small and fragile boat upon the great sea of the cosmos. If we are going to survive as a race we must pull together all of our collective powers and resources to expand our reaches into the heavens. Waging war only serves to deplete our precious dwindling resources as well as our most precious commodity - human spirit. I don't think it should be necessary to point out the absurdity of killing each other in the name of our respective gods, but it appears there is still a lot of that going on. Let us discourage our young from becoming soldiers when what we really need are explorers.

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN 2013

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN 2013
It seems simple to me...just shut down those offices, elected and appointed, that are responsible for making the decisions which have  led us to this!

CONTACT YOUR REPRESENTATIVE ABOUT THE FUKUSHIMA NUCLEAR DISASTER

FUKUSHIMA NUCLEAR DISASTER THREATENS ENTIRE HUMAN RACE

For the last several months I have been monitoring the World's news networks for stories about the nuclear meltdown (now referred to as a "melt through") at Fukushima's Daiichi Nuclear Reactor. Because, uncontrolled radiation leaking from the damaged nuclear reactor could potentially destroy all life on the planet, it is in my opinion the biggest news event in human history.

Scouring the web-pages of CNN, MSNBC, Reuters, and the Associated Press, I haven't found much about this global crisis. Instead of finding many stories covering the nuclear disaster, I have mostly been finding stories about the British "royal baby", whistle-blowers like Bradley Manning, Edward Snowden or Julian Assange, and the drug habits of celebrities such as Lindsay Lohan. In fact, it has been difficult to find any stories about what is going on at Fukushima's Daiichi Reactor site--it appears that the only news networks that consider the story newsworthy are the UK's BBC news network, Al Jazeera (now only available in the U.S. as Al Jazeera America), and the only network to keep the story in it headlines, Russia Today, which has actually put a link on their front page for FUKUSHIMA LEAK--LIVE UPDATES.

Willful Ignorance?
After posting dozens of articles on my Facebook page, it became obvious to me that people just don't want to talk about what is likely to be the biggest disaster in human history. In fact, even my "activist" friends, the ones who are always calling for action against Monsanto and GMO foods, etc., didn't seem to have anything to say...no "Likes" or "Shares" for my posts about the unfolding story of the poisoning of our planet's oceans. In fact, it looks to me like my attempts to  make people aware of the disaster only makes them angry. Like ostriches with their heads in the sand, they appear to be in willful ignorance to the danger that is rapidly creeping its way across the Pacific Ocean and evaporating into our atmosphere.

Closing our eyes to the situation in Fukushima won't make the problem go away. Pretending it isn't happening won't make us safe from the radiation which is now spreading across our oceans and into our atmosphere. No amount of chocolate-chip happy, positive thinking is going to stop the poisonous radioactivity that is threatening all life on Earth.


In the meantime, we (the United States) still have troops deployed all over the world, fighting useless battles for oil when they should be trying to prevent the oncoming nuclear winter. Let's concentrate all of our national energy on dealing with this situation before it is too late.

What can you do?
I strongly urge everyone of who reads this to contact your representatives in congress by phone or by mail and demand that our federal government ends all overseas operations immediately and starts addressing this global catastrophe.

Contact Your Representative
FOLLOW THIS LINK to find the representatives for your state and contact them today! Once you have found your representative you may copy and paste the suggested text below into the contact form and send it as an email to your local representative.

Copy and Paste This Text:
I write you to request that you initiate action in congress to respond to the global disaster at Fukushima's leaking Daiichi nuclear power plant. The radiation leaking into the Pacific Ocean is a threat to all life on the planet. Our federal government is wasting billions of dollars fighting senseless wars overseas while we should instead be doing something to prevent the contamination of our global food supply. Thank you for your attention to this problem.

CHINA SYNDROME AT FUKUSHIMA!

Even though the food supply of the entire human race is at risk of being lost forever and the end of human civilization is likely, CNN's morning news program remains totally silent on the subject.

Instead, I am seeing stories about the new Jeep; the safety of drinking Diet Coke, and the Mayor of San Diego being banned from Hooters. No one seems to care that Planet Earth will very likely become uninhabitable within our lifetimes.

In my opinion, there is no other news story that is worthy of my time until something is done about the radioactivity leaking out of Japan's broken nuclear reactor. We need a global response effort and we need it now! This should be every nations priority. Fighting over land, religion, and cultural differences is sheer stupidity when we consider the fact that humanity may become extinct whithin a few short generations!

I am making a plea to the nations of the world and the collective news media to bring this story to the headlines. If there is nothing we can do to prevent the inevitable doom that we are all facing, then let us start taking measure to ensure the survival of our race. This should be the first story on our collective consciousness.
