The truth of what this bill really is and the destruction it would do, doesn’t support its passage. Only lies and deceptions can be used to promote it. It’s an $880 billion cut in health insurance subsidies for those who need it the most and an $880 billion tax windfall for the wealthiest Americans.

Let me explain. The rhetoric from mainstream climate groups (and many scientists) over the past few years has sounded something like this: ‘if we don’t seriously reduce our carbon dioxide levels, our grandchildren will be in big trouble by 2100’. With that deadline 84 years away, the tendency is to become complacent. But nearly all such assertions about a 2100 deadline are based on carbon dioxide concentrations alone.

“If you’d been honest, you wouldn’t have had Crazy Rudy yammering about how she had all these coughing fits which proved she had ebola-zika-AIDS-IBS-zombieism. You helped cause the very situation that made you want to lie about her condition, get it?”

Death stalks Bushwick. A production still from Planet Hospice.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with me or my work, My name is Dan. I am the simple performance artist. I sing, I dance (kinda) and I tell the funny story. I’ve been writing plays since the 1970’s, and some 19 of them have been produced on some […]

“By removing the need for doctors to be licensed, we could get all kinds of new and exciting approaches in medicine! Why not let a barista do liposuction? A jackhammer operator give a colonoscopy? Or a clown be a brain surgeon?”

Scalia explained, “History now poses a threat to the white male conservative Christian’s life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. That being the case, this court has no other choice but to order history to cease and desist.

Texas Floods

The disconnect between those Americans essentially supporting greater Climate Change and more frequent and terrible natural disasters that some of them dying in, is astounding.

We are running on borrowed time, folks. Every country needs to do all it can to lessen their effects on our environment.Every person should do all he or she can to cut their own carbon footprint.

The beauty of forests, lakes, rivers,and all the other resourses nature has given us.
