The Economics of Extraction Debt

No longer do Robber Barons need to plunder villages with swords and arms. With regulatory and/or judicial complicity, the extraction industry can jab a siphon into our veins and drain our lives away. They simply appropriate our air and water, and transform them into wealth for themselves. In essence, Extraction Debt is the modern weapon of corporate pillage.

How do you go about changing the status quo that shows women make less than 80% of what men do, for the same work?

Anti-abortion? Let’s talk.

Did you know that 66% of pro-choice advocates also favor more abortion restrictions?

Parental Rights

You don’t need to have any experience with family law to become a family court judge in WV. You can run if you’re a bankruptcy lawyer. The WV Family Court system is a ghastly mess.

WV<3 guns
