As one who doesn’t take seriously Marjorie Taylor Greene and who believes she does herself a disservice by continuing in manic right-wing chauvinism, one is still surprised to agree with her assertion that an audit is required on the topic of the US funding to Ukraine for the war with Russia.
Political Parties aren’t intended to run the nation. Neither branch of the Duopoly, D&R, seem to have placed this principle over self interest.
A Free Press is necessary for democracy. Differing views are important. Sophisticated analysis is possible when opposing ideas are considered.
Few of the public are aware of the decade-long struggle against human rights violations and natural rights violations in the Northeast, and most notably along the border of NYS and Pa.. A reason is censorship by corporate-owned government-influenced MSM. During the decade-long anti-fracking struggle, little to nothing was reported on local news about local-community advocacy to uphold human and natural rights. One doesn’t recall in the last week ore so, a news report that as Shapiro says, the penalties against corporate harm are historic. Perhaps I missed the local news report that could have encouraged local community members that incidentally, justice happens. Devoid of a Free Press, one appreciates social media, which is denigrated by corporate-owned government-run MSM
The conversation around paid sick days for railroad workers can spark healthy discussion.
When you say what the rest of us should be able to figure out for ourselves anyway, you get censored—
Complexity is built into the system to enable control. Meanwhile, a few dedicated high-value principles are all that is really needed. But where would corruption hide?
And the USA still denies its citizens a 1-payer comprehensive public health care system that would be less costly, more efficient, and inclusive.
We needn’t ignore reality and then accept indoctrination.
On this small-business Saturday, free market concepts should be important. In the USA, corporate-owned politicians have put into place laws and policies that significantly undermine local sole proprietorship in favor of chain store privilege.
Today C-Span at around 2:30PM, is airing a Congressional Q&A on the topic of US Drone Strikes. This is an eyeopener on a topic about which most people have a passing awareness and little more. Transparency is stressed by such groups as the ACLU, and defended against by some politicians. That drones are used by one nation against the citizens of another seems to be beyond the pale.
The public has no idea what goes on behind closed doors pertaining to politics. In NYS this was called 3-men-in-a-room politics. Or was it 2-men? Who knows?
When the Republican branch of the duopoly are in power they investigate the Democratic branch of the duopoly and vice versa. This is an excellent bi-partisan deflection that keeps in power our 2-Party system and the oligarchy behind it. Meanwhile local-community members around the globe and including the USA are warned we “must sacrifice”
World peace is a good way to honor our Veterans and to challenge Climate Change, by the way.
Too often freedom for one person comes at the liability of another. Socialism could be a label to suggest balancing away from exploitation of this type, if it must be labeled. Another phrase could be respect for natural, human, and civil rights. Either way, everyone should have a voice in defining freedom, not only the hierarchy.
