I am an Environmental Health and Safety Professional, as well as a science/technical writer for a variety of news and professional publications. I have been a citizen activist since 2009, and am one of the co-founders of the San Diego-based group, Southern California Tax Revolt Coalition.

Astute Legal Insurrection readers remarked that much of the "climate change" dialog in this country seems to be directed at getting citizens to support United Nation's Agenda 21.

Around the same time, the "stimulus" legislation that eventually became the American Recovery and Investment Act was being bandied about the halls of Congress with tons of hyper-partisan theater. Now, it seems the...

I am responding to Professor Jacobson's recent post, The Tea Party tsunami at the gates. As the Media Director of SoCal Tax Revolt Coalition (SCTRC), San Diego's original Tea Party group, I wanted to share my analysis that it won't be a tsunami -- it will...
