I wish I had more time for activism because media in general is getting more important by the day. Family matters have (of course) superseded everything else, but I'm still here giving whatever time I can.
I also want to thank ALL of the Liberal Minded activists out there doing what you can!
Global Warming, even if completely wrong, doesn't change the fact that our planet is being degraded at an unsustainable rate.
Californian whose Catholic Irish ancestors moved from Ireland to the Bay Area before 1864. My parents still live in the house built by my family in 1864 in downtown Vallejo.
Married to a 1st grade public school teacher and we have 2 children, a 6 year old son and a 4 year old daughter.
We live on a 80+ acre ranch in the Coastal range mountains.
We have an organic orchard, with over 10 varieties of fruit.
I developed and maintain a natural spring for our water supply for 3 homes.I pump the water with solar photo voltaic panels 400 feet up a mountain for a gravity feed water system.
We are doing very well, but many are not, and that is one of the reasons I'm online, to help change that.
The Environment is my biggest concern, although many progressive issues touch me in sensitive places.
I feel the media is a big part of the answer to these problems.I'm a fan of George Seldes, who was a great investigative reporter/journalist for over 90 years, almost the entire 20th century. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Seldes.
