It's time again to answer questions from you, my vigilant fans! Got a question for the Governor? Sound off at ora.tv/offthegrid/askjesse.
Thomas Devlin from Indiana has asked: How do we end the corporate control of our politicians, is campaign finance reform the answer?
It certainly is, but good luck on getting it.
You would have to get the politicians to do it, and they’re not going to bite the hand that feeds them.
The only other alternative is to stop electing Democrats and Republicans. The moment we do that, we could implicate campaign finance laws. That could then possible eliminate the corporate takeover of our politicians.
But until that happens, the United States is in a world of trouble.
Gordon McGuire from Arizona has asked: Do you have any interest in the Jimmy Hoffa investigation?
I read about Jimmy Hoffa only occasionally. His name pops up in some of the history material I read.
I guess the bottom line would be why would benefit from finding out where Hoffa is?
Mark Ruggieri from Rhode Island has asked: I've always wondered what was it like working with Gorilla Monsoon? You two were terrific!
Thank you! It was a lot of fun.
Gorilla Monsoon was a great big powerful man, but he also had a great sense of humor. He had good timing and it was always thoroughly enjoyable to work with him.
It was one of those jobs where when you went to work, you always felt good about it because of the people you worked with.
Michelle Shanks Nunezon Facebook asks: What is the #1 thing we can do to stop the police state from completely taking over?
The #1 thing we could do is to be vigilant citizens. We need exercise our 1st amendment rights in the correct manner, which means non-violent.
You lose the sympathy of the general public if you bring violence.
We can protest, march, and get the point across without violence.
Michael Saveme Silverman on Facebook asks: Is violence or the threat of violence ever justified against an innocent person??
If you’re an innocent person, you should never have the threat of violence put in front of you. We’re all together too violent of a society.
I think we need to move away form war. It's time we realize that war is man at its worst, not its best.
