A Useful Reminder from Bill McKibben

McKibben provides a good New Year’s reminder on money in politics, and specifically on how corporate money has influenced the votes and the debate on the Keystone pipeline. He was one of over 1000 people arrested for protesting against it, and he knows the science. Like him, I’ll try to be hopefully naive enough to believe it is possible for us to get our political system back from the moneyed interests.

About JP

We're two guys who met in college, in 1980. We've stayed in touch, and like to talk politics, current events, music and religion. JP is nore liberal than Sid, but not in every way. We figure that dialogue stimulates ideas, moderates perspective, and is in general friendly. These are things we need badly in these dangerous times. The blog name is taken from a song by Bruce Cockburn.
