07.10 Plastic Has A Big Carbon Footprint — But That Isn't The Whole Story [Fixing our world begins by educating your consciousness with the best truth from trustworthy news sources—so you'll then insist truly bad things will get fixed. But if instead you are educated by untrustworthy news sources—then your consciousness could be warped to where you are hating and fighting with your best friends. Clue: untrustworthy news sources never seriously report news about the world's most critical emergency—Global warming.]

07.16 Turnstile teaching [The problem is NOT the color of students skin, as our fake President reflexively thinks. The problem is the lax attitude and deficient funding by government to always do a much better job for a better future.]

07.15 Trump Takes Pelosi's Side Against AOC and The Squad as Intraparty Fight Over Immigration Continues [Its about much more than immigration, its about the Corporate Dominance—by many of the same companies, even—over both major Political Parties.

07.13 After a Police Shooting, Ethiopian Israelis Seek a ‘Black Lives Matter’ Reckoning [Since so-called modern humans evolved there have been 10,000 generations of people. It is extremely far-fetched to think anyone is racially pure. SO ALL THIS HATE IS INCREDIBLY STUPID.]
07.13 Brazil’s President May Appoint Son, Friend to the Trumps, as Ambassador to U.S. [Friend of the Trumps, so we know they're all brain-dead except about near-term profits. They are clear-cutting the Amazon Rain Forest to feed-then-butcher millions of methane farting cows, over and over. Yep, that's there business plan. So therefore the rest of the world will hopefully plant billions of trees elsewhere to sequester CO2 to offset what the Bolsonaro family and investors are destroying. What's wrong with this picture?]
07.13 Trump’s Cruelty and Mexico’s Duty [Our president is immoral to his core and reacts to things like a child, not understanding that his actions are often crueler than they should be. And that cruelty will never completely be excused or forgotten—the people's hatred of Trump is growing, like the Texan's hatred when President General Santa Anna laid seige to the Alamo, which was Mexico's territory at the time...]
Md. Green Party Protests Exclusion from Gubernatorial Debates
“Martin O’Malley and Robert Ehrlich do not want democracy, and their behavior in this matter attests to that,” says Maria Allwine, the Green Party candidate for State Senate from the 43rd District.When the campaign staff of Green Party gubernatorial candidate Ed Boyd learned from WJZ-TV Channel 13 that there would be a debate between Mayor Martin O’Malley and Governor Robert Ehrlich that would be taped on Saturday, October 14 at Coppin State College, they sought to have Boyd included. They called WJZ every day of the week prior to the debate, but were told that no information was being released.
The Boyd campaign was finally informed that there would be not one, but two debates scheduled for Saturday, October 14, but Boyd was excluded from both of them.
The first was filmed live at Maryland Public Television studios at 7PM, and was simucast on WBAL Channel 11. The second was the taped WJZ Channel 13 debate, which was held at 1PM and will be shown at 7PM on Monday, October 16.
“Clearly, the candidates do not even want to debate one another, let alone debate me,” said Green Party candidate for Governor Ed Boyd, noting how the O’Malley and Ehrlich camps, along with the networks, did not notify the public of the details even the day before the events.
Boyd added, “It is also clear that O’Malley and Ehrlich also fear that the Green Party positions will stand out from theirs if I am included." He felt the two other candidates would not want it brought out that they both support the death penalty, support the Intercounty Connector highway project, and oppose universal health care.
“Martin O’Malley and Robert Ehrlich do not want democracy, and their behavior in this matter attests to that,” says Maria Allwine, the Green Party candidate for State Senate from the 43rd District. “We are disappointed by these shenanigans, but we are not surprised.”
There was a Maryland Green Party protest at the site of the debate at Maryland Public Television in Owings Mills on Saturday, October 14.
Earlier on Saturday, Boyd showed his support for the Algebra Project during their Freedom Fall event at Greenmount Cemetery. “Supporting our school kids in their hour of need is far more important than hearing O’Malley and Ehrlich blabbing to each other over things they’ve never done or of what they promise to do, but will never deliver on,” said Boyd.
For more information, call the Boyd campaign office at 410-913-2395.
