Acknowledgement of Indigenous Peoples at Thanksgiving 2020

This Thanksgiving, PEG is featuring a guest contribution from Patricia Anderson, a member of Temple Beth Emeth that acknowledges and honors indigenous peoples in Michigan. We say the words, “We acknowledge with respect,” but are we who live here now truly being respectful of the gifts and losses of the people who shared their lands with us? It was suggested that perhaps, as a small gesture of respect, of thanks beyond the words of acknowledgment, some of us may wish to make a contribution to local organizations that support Native American communities in Michigan with food and other resources.

Who continues to be screwed? (Part II in Electoral College Series)

The current system of determining electoral votes vary from state to state and “Battleground” states receive 7% more federal grants than “spectator” states, twice as many presidential disaster declarations, more Superfund enforcement exemptions, and more No Child Left Behind law exemptions. Lastly, these statutes have allowed five of our 45 Presidents to take office without having won the most popular votes nationwide.
