Wait a minute. Instead of paying through advertisements, data brokers and infotrolls, I can just pay the creator directly? Novel! Sorry I couldn’t afford afford the nuclear option.

Michael, thank you!

Now is the time to launch a publicly owned/operated social media platform. For the people, by the people. Democratically run.

On the climate emergency, we need to nationalize the Oil&Gas industry because they will never do what is in the best interest of us or the planet. Also nationalize all electric infrastructure w/heavy investment in solar, wind, geothermal, carbon capture, etc.

To pay for all this, I propose we confiscate all wealth above ~$40 million to fix our broken planet. We can give them an IOU for the funds in case we succeed in not going extinct (our current path) and what will their billions be worth when we are all dead.

Finally, we must realize that the corporate agenda does not include us, our concerns, our health or future. We tried to harness greed to get us some things and then greed harnessed us.

Keep up the good work. I appreciate it immensely!

I will never forget that you allowed me to hold a premiere screening Fahrenheit 9/11 in Newport , RI (and boy did I take the heat from locals although the theater was packed.) You did so graciously and with no strings attached. I've been a loyal fan ever since!

As a longtime member of Mike's Militia, I stand ready to serve.

Like, um, drinks maybe. Or a tennis ball.

I’ve only been a member for a few minutes and already a useful link! This is inspiring me to completely be off Facebook and just get content from like-minded people. Thank you Anita!

Seconding this, as could use some cheering up. Suspect others could as well. I was 20 when Saigon fell, and this past weekend was more like a bad flashback than deja but.

And thanks to Mike for starting this. I am in Springfield MO, a place a lot of you know of after the past couple months. The bible thumpers have always been exasperating, but now that most are on the anti vax wagon, they are dangerous.

And then there’s That Guy. Like the way Mike said we got rid of him. Not around here, we haven’t. At least most of the yard signs are gone now. :-(

Regards Michael. You've been a voice in the wilderness for so long on so many issues. Please keep up the noise. Some aren't paying attention still.

Thank you, Michael, for fighting the good fight! I am tired of all the mean-spirited trolling on FB also. I am going to send my email address to my FB friends and jump off. I'm not on Twitter because of 45, and I like Instagram, so will just be on there. There are many other platforms, but I dont have the energy for them all. I look forward to your weekly posts! Onward through the fog!
