LOUD VOICES OF HIERARCHY
The capitalistic hierarchical Establishment political sound bite that “we must protect American interests overseas and spread democracy around the world”, could be taken seriously if the US-citizen interests were first protected at home, and if Americans enjoyed democratic liberty. In FACT, US foreign policy feels to be protection of oligarch interests around the globe with disregard to global local communities. Imperialism seems to be a fascist proclivity. We The People are left in the dust.
“If you’re wondering about who the real traitors are, they’re the ones who voted to give our weapons manufacturers $40 billion to send missiles to Ukraine when we don’t even have baby formula,” @blackintheempir tweeted.Florida Republican Congresswoman Kat Cammon accused the Biden administration of stockpiling baby formula at the border for illegal immigrants while Americans ran out.

C-Span hosted conversation that included the waning baby formula supply in the USA. 8:20AM–guest—paraphrase—-Back in the 50’s mothers made their own “formula” using evaporated milk, water, and dark Karo syrup. As one who was delighted by the appearance of a little sister in the early ’50’s, one remembers the unrelenting presence of dark Karo syrup in our kitchen. I’ve always wondered about the reason for so much Karo syrup in our house, and that seems to answer the question. One also remembers relentless cotton diapers hanging on the clothes line.
The caller to C-Span shared the recipe she said she found online. She also mentioned that this recipe doesn’t include vitamins that can be secured after a discussion with a pharmacist as to those necessary.
One almost might think the extraordinary expense of raising children in 2022 has to do with industrial marketing. Do we really need to be so complicated?
This idea runs parallel to the absurd costs paid by so many consumers for technology that may or may not be helpful, considering the expense required.

Why is law enforcement charged with arresting people who are addressing Climate Change? Why in the Southern Tier of NYS has law enforcement urged laws to “crack down” on those they label as activists/protesters, who appear to be concerned and responsible citizens?
From socialistproject — https://socialistproject.ca/2022/05/as-planet-warms-sacrificing-lives-for-profits/#more –Because corporate profit-based considerations have constantly dictated our energy use and climate policies, we have effectively decided that major sacrifices of lives – most likely poor people of color – will be worth the pain of relying on fossil fuels for energy.—end of socialistproject info–
Ironic is the inordinate US involvement in the military action between Russia and Ukraine, which some people believe was encouraged using insinuation of “Western values”, when so much is left undone in our own neighborhoods. Peace is a prerequisite.From PANYS.org –After the horrific mass shooting of 13 people, killing 10, in the Tops Supermarket in Buffalo, the Western New York Peace Center (WNYPC) decided to proceed with the Women’s March WNY 2022: Solidarity, Victory and Healing because the organizers felt is was more important than ever to come together in solidarity and healing as a community. Today we share some videos from the WNYPC’s Facebook Page where they are also posting ways you can help the community. If you would like to support the Western New York Peace Center so that they can continue the healing in Buffalo, here is a donation link. The Western New York Peace Center was founded in 1967 by Buffalonians as a chapter of Rev. Dr. King’s Clergy and Laity Concerned, They workfor peace through justice at home and abroad. They are also a valued chapter of Peace Action New York State. Several leaders of PANYS come from the Center, including PANYS President Jim Anderson, Upstate Vice-President of PANYS, Vicki Ross, and the current center’s Executive Director, Deidra Elmel.

The idea that God (in whatever way each imagines He/She/cause-and-effect) can be found in the dark matter, is fascinating. https://portside.org/2022-05-15/god-dark-matter-and-falling-cats-conversation-2022-templeton-prize-winner-frank-wilczek –Frank Wilczek, a Nobel Prize–winning theoretical physicist and author, has been announced as the recipient of the 2022 Templeton Prize, which is valued at more than $1.3 million. The annual award honors those “who harness the power of the sciences to explore the deepest questions of the universe and humankind’s place and purpose within it,” according to a press release from the John Templeton Foundation. Previous recipients include scientists such as Jane Goodall, Marcelo Gleiser and Martin Rees, as well as religious or political leaders such as Mother Theresa and Desmond Tutu.–end of portside info–The book The Secret Teachings of Jesus translated by Marvin W. Meyer includes The Secret Book of John. Not an expert on the Bible, one still wonders that this is excluded by institutionalized resources. The information is astounding.
Having watched misogyny used as a campaign talking point during the 2020 Democratic Presidential campaign, one holds no expectation from Democrats on topics about women. To use the phrase coined by Democratic campaign strategies, much was blamed on women for the woes of the world……..”especially white women”. This is a suspiciously institutionalized mindset.https://www.gp.org/democrats_are_culpable –While the popular sentiment may be to “vote blue” to protect abortion rights, this runs afoul of history. In 1974, then-Senator Joe Biden stated in regards to Roe v. Wade, “I don’t like the Supreme Court decision on abortion. I think it went too far.” He went on to say, “I don’t think that a woman has the sole right to say what should happen to her body.” A few years later in 1982, Biden was one of only two Democratic lawmakers who supported a constitutional amendment that allowed states to overturn Roe v. Wade and pass their own laws on abortion. Just nine years later, Joe Biden would then be largely to blame for the confirmation of anti-abortion Justice Clarence Thomas.–end of gp info–One holds out enthusiasm when one remembers that the majority of voters are neither Republican or Democratic. The political Party corporations insinuate differently, but not FACTually.

The US Constitution doesn’t seem to sanction elections run by political Parties, and to permit control of political debates by political Parties seems equally corrupt.

Centralization is the lifeblood of the R&D duopoly. It’s the way to enforce capitalism onto workers in 2022.
