Hillary Clinton and Earth Day

In honor of Earth Day I would like to say something serious for a moment. (ZZZZZZZZZ) Please read on...

I have always had the passionate conviction that we live in a time absolutely crucial to the continued existence of our planet.
Although I no longer live as I did for years.... as a vegan living off the land with no electricity, car, or running water... the conviction is still just as strong. We have to make huge changes on our planet or we are all toast.

I believe with heart and soul that Hillary Clinton is a person who will guide us as a country and as a planet into the right direction. I believe Hillary is a rare and powerful spirit of good.
If the purpose of my life is to play the fool for Hillary with a paintbrush, then lucky me, I can't think of a better way to spend it.


(The Fool, painted on a car hood)


Here's what Hillary said today regarding Earth Day.....

“We’re trying to green diplomacy and we want to do it every day, not just on Earth Day. That starts with our foreign policy, and accepting that climate change is more than a scientific phenomenon. It’s a political challenge, it’s an economic force, it’s a security threat, and a moral imperative. We’ve already seen the results of climate change, which has, because of rising waters, because of desertification, displaced communities, and jeopardized food and water supplies, helped to spread epidemics and threatened the continued existence of island nations."

Hear Hear! Great speech, Big Brass! I agree wholeheartedly.

Hey, maybe in the vein of the wonderful Fool you've posted here...how about Hillary as the Empress (for Earth Day)....eh? Would be way cool!

Maybe also the High Priestess...but, Empress is so Earthy.
