“For man holds in his mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty and all forms of human life.” President Kennedy could have included all life on earth.
Why do corporate conservatives deny the threat of their nuclear products simmering deep in the earth? Because we increase dependency on Nestlé’s privatized water and put faith in Clean Coal, Fracking and Exxon didn’t you know?
Could the hyperlink connecting two dozen GOP senators cutting off hundreds of millions in contributions to the United Nations’ Green Climate Fund and billionaire hatred for Collectivism be, terror of our connecting the dots between west coast drought, Texas floods, mid-west tornadoes, radically vacillating temperatures, post Congress careers and corporate bottom-lines?
Why do Republican Senators vote against aid for Flint children drinking lead laden water, while bringing snowballs to Congress in support of Climate Change denial?

Truth is, though historically silenced, women have led humanity with reason and accountability, inspiring social awareness, social justice and social change.
