John and Teresa Kerry appeared in L.A. last night to talk about their new book “This Moment on Earth” It is a book about our environment and what we can do individually to help stop greenhouses gasses and global warming. It is also about the products that we use that may be harmful to us. They pointed out the Canada’s version of the food and drug administration has banned hundreds of products in the same time that we in the U.S. have only banned about a half a dozen. These are things we use around the house that could potentially be carcinogenic.
At one point Kerry was taking questions and some republican yahoo plant who showed up in overalls so he could rant about immigration and union workers, he complained about how he is going backward, working more making less with less benefits and blaming it all on immigrants. Kerry shut him up by saying that regardless of your view on immigration the laws must be followed and Its the employers that are breaking the law but are seldom charged. He also took the guy to task by saying that a lot of union workers voted for Reagan, Bush and Bush, when it is the Democrats that are the ones that are looking out for the working man. He said that they vote against their own self interest because they get caught up in the whole “God, Guns, and Gays” Issues that republicans use as wedge issues (for the not so intelligent… Kerry didn’t say that part I did)
After the talk John and Teresa signed some books and got to meet some of the people who have shown up. I will be doing a full review of the book soon. Stay tuned.
