Leadership defintions, Climate Change, and the COnstitution

Standard

On Christmas day it is forecast to be 65 degrees in the hottest year on record. Yet the opinions of the experts on the subject are tossed away by people who are entrusted with our long term security.

Do you as a career politician, have a well researched reason for ignoring the experts on the subject?

I’d think about one, because it’s going to come to a vote, and you will both be asked to decide, and to explain your reason why.

The only oath a President swears to is to uphold the Constitution. A fair question to any would be President, is how would a proposed ban on Muslim immigrants be affected by the first Amendment. In this Constitutionally challenged time, the best thing a person wanting to up hold the Constitution can do is to cite the first amendment, and it would be great to get the presidential candidates on record saying the first amendment.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

The gun violence in this country is epidemic. I do not think gun control alone is a solution, but nothing about the second amendment prohibits regulation on individual gun ownership, and I would like to re- examine the concept of “well-regulated militia”. More human killing devices do not inherently lower violence rates. THe question as to why in this day and age you should feel that some stakes is life or death is crazy, and speaks to larger imbalances in the society. There are spaces for people, we produce enough food, and there are enough people who need stuff to do that we can start doing all of the things that need to be done, and still have time to live well. But we all have to learn how to do so more responsibly, and start with themselves. (I’m looking at you, self)

Any place where human lives, from vehicular accidents, to gun fire are being expended without good reason, are priorities of the society, and the principals which govern it.

 

 

 

 

Sunday’s ask(last)

Standard

Today’s Ask

I ask our President for use of the remainder of the stimulus green energy loan guarantees as

insurance for green bonds, with an approved leveraging ratio of 12 to 1. This will put $100

billion dollars of private investment to use in homes and communities throughout this great

nation, and provide business certainty for investment purposes. Given the American

responisbilty for the technologies involved in this,  I think looking to provide a similar

underwriting of $10 Billion dollars worth of deals in developing nations is reasonable.

I also ask that government funded training services, and educational stipends for research

education be put into play, which likely requires Congressional approval. We also need to

put research dollars into play for the development of methods to absorb and utilize excess

thermal energy, or to reflect it into space as albedo. A carbon tax, possibly revenue

neutral is certainly a common sense step toward adjusting pricing long term, as are building

efficency and local carbon neutral supply thresholds
I ask that the President be willing to hold Congress in session until they answer common

sense call to action, especially given the likely the strength of positive effect on

American jobs.

I ask the American people, to turn some of their attention to rational, educated discussion

of the issues at hand; with the humility to self educate on the meanings of the core

principles underlying issues, with deference less to party, and more towards community, and

country stabilizing and improvement.

I ask that they put forth responsible investments, toward making their communities better,

and see that as a responsibility of having more than they need to survive, and a greater

responsibilty, and better use to guaranteeing the continuance of the family than to leave it

in a bank account for inheiritance. This is an urgent priority, for future generation.

I ask the American people to celebrate the President’s veto of Congress’s attempt to limit

the use of executive actions, and to send a clear message to the Congress that we want them

concerned with doing their own jobs well.

I would ask them to give their response to my asks.

I would also ask that

Today’s Acknowledgement

The firm commitments made by corporate powers that be and business, means a vast capital

shift towards energy efficency and cleaner, more locally developed energy, a mile stone in

terms of committment and business certainties for investment. It promises to be a busy,

prosperous and tumultous year on markets. Some shall rise, and some shall fall.

Today’s word of Caution.

At this point, with our climate already in shift, we must act with all due haste and provide

solid commitment to managing our energy usage as a species, and energy input as a planet.

My two biggest causes: Rebrand America accoriding to it’s own laws (civics education and

implementation), and Rebuild America, into a more resilent and less waste
I would also add sharpening our focus on Education, and Medicine

Today’s Promise:

I promise that if we answer these asks, our society will be put on a path to greater good,

and we will know more and be more ready to handle any changes that come forward, and

understand ourselves better, and our days will be more useful and beneficial towards one

another.
We will need to begin to measure and ask questions with a more robust, and critical eye

towards the truth. As a society.
