C-Span touched on several topics today, one being welfare as we know it.  Hierarchical rhetoric is taking on a tediously nonsensical tone, some people think.

9:16AM–clip run with Newt Gingrich in 1995 saying we need to end welfare as we know it.    (At the time, one recalls bringing up the anomaly of the FACT that it was Reagan who ended the Welfare-to-Work Program that trained individuals into employable viability while paying welfare.  That Gingrich attempted this Republican bait-and-switch is disingenuous.)

We could discuss the reason we avoid like the plaque the subject of support for worker-owned business in favor of a top-down business model that controls workers including their wages while supporting employers ostensibly for the good of the worker.https://www.c-span.org/video/?521950-4/washington-journal-edward-berkowitz-sanford-schram-discuss-1996-welfare-reform-law&live      — JULY 24, 2022 | PART OF WASHINGTON JOURNAL 07/24/2022

Mr. Martino in speaking of the issues that will motivate voters mentioned pocketbook issues, and insinuated that Choice isn’t one such motivator.  The charming naivete that Choice isn’t a pocketbook issue must be challenged.  It is inconsistent in an economic system that includes laws and policies that support the interests of hierarchy rather than women and children, to surmise that a drop in the price of gasoline will encourage a woman to carry to term, because she believes she can now raise the child in dignity.   Capitalism doesn’t afford space for human dignity.  That is a pocketbook issue.

Laws protect hierarchy.  https://portside.org/2022-07-23/structuring-economy-give-money-rich-inflationary?utm_source=portside-general&utm_medium=email     –This is the reason Stryker’s agenda offers little real hope for the working class, regardless of how it polls. On the other hand, today’s inflation should show us very directly how attacking the policies that redistribute so much income upward would help the working class.

Servant Of The Corrupt——-By Pedro Gonzalez, Consortium News. In February 2021, by order of President Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukraine shut down three domestic television channels, accusing them of spreading Russian “propaganda.” Three months later, Zelenksky arrested Viktor Medvedchuk, who was at the time leading the second-biggest party in Ukraine’s national parliament, the pro-Russia and Eurosceptic Opposition Platform for Life (OPZZh). Zelensky didn’t have trouble incinerating vaunted democratic norms well-before Russia crossed the Rubicon into Ukraine this year.

Climate Change like Choice has been ignored by the Democratic/Republican duopoly as campaign topics and governing policy.  

Climate Change is an existential threat.

Some people have ignored 3rd-Party genius and ideas due to the unfamiliar tone of genuine concepts, after the boredom of Democratic/Republican duopoly rhetoric.  

Who’s ready for fresh ideas?—–

#GreenSocialist Notes, Episode 82 with Special Guest Michael Oretade

Streamed live 18 hours ago This week Howie will be joined by special guest Michael Oretade, Green candidate for Connecticut State Senate, District 1!

****As one who would be perfectly contented to retain the Senate if they adhered to Oaths of Office more than to Citizens United campaign donations, one is interested in a topic raised as to the reason we maintain the US Senate—-
 This is a reminder of how much we don’t know.  This brings one around to Howie Hawkins, who continues to impress with original thought.  We also could acknowledge Hawkins often speaks to censored information.
One such topic about which one would never have even considered, is whether the USA needs The Senate.  Apparently The Senate is little other than expensive window dressing, promoting hierarchical interests, and too often placed in positions of power by big-money via Citizens United.  But the public gets to fund this curiosity of pompous supremacy.  Who knew?
The Democratic Branch of the Republican/Democratic Duopoly are especially functional in voter suppression—–https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BNbdkuU1edw          —#GreenSocialist Notes #76
Howie Hawkins brings up the concept of whether the USA needs the Senate.  Apparently according to some people, the Senate isn’t necessary.  This brings up the blockage from the Senate of many bills that would benefit We The People.  Combined with Citizens United that promotes big-money interest choice of Senators, in which laws are passed that benefit big-money interest rather than We The People, and that We The People support economically, the members of the Senate, this seems a good topic for discussion.
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.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQ7kn2-GEmM       —

Ross Perot in 1992 on NAFTA and the “Giant Sucking Sound”

Centralization is the lifeblood of the R&D duopoly.  It’s the way to enforce capitalism onto workers in 2022.———————–We can do better———-

That “we are a 2-Party system” is a fabrication of the Republican/Democratic duopoly and spread by MSM.  In FACT the majority of voters aren’t either registered Democratic or Republican.  The censorship about this info must be envied by bureaucrats of the Former USSR and their simplistic style of 1-Party elections.  
Regardless of which character sits in the Oval Office, We The People have work to do to maintain principles of our democratic (small d) Constitutional republic.  Several items to challenge—*We need the integrity of ranked-choice voting so voters won’t feel compelled to “hold your nose and vote”*Censored debates must be stopped.  The Democratic/Republican duopoly pretends to legitimate debates in what is nothing other than another campaign show.  Independent debates run by uninterested sponsors such as The League of Women Voters, must be restored.  (Access www.debates.org to understand the extent of duopoly control).  The so-called Debate Commission is a corporation to promote the Democratic corporation and Republican corporation, not to inform We The People*Challenge and stop gerrymandering that is a trick especially of the Republican branch of the duopoly.*Stop voter suppression by political Parties, and especially confront and stop Party suppression, which is the over-arching approach to voter suppression.  Party suppression seems to have been the responsibility of the Democratic corporation*Promote by law ranked-choice voting, so we won’t be told again, by D&R duopoly, to “hold your nose and vote”If these issues are handled, our next elections can be honorable. *******************************************************************https://news.gallup.com/poll/15370/party-affiliation.aspx—-Political Party affiliation of voters.

WITHDRAWS SUPPORT FROM FINAL PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE–end of lwv info–Murray Bookchin, who founded social ecology, a theory that strongly influenced early Green Socialist thought, strongly advocated the discussion and study group as the first step of any revolutionary movement. A group of individuals meets to expand their knowledge of radical thought and form a radical intellectual community; through the give and take of discussion, can eventually form ideas for next steps in organizing and political activity. According to Bookchin, study groups help create solidarity and a shared language — with a shared coherent vision — for building a mass, organizing, political movement!

Along with Climate Change, many people oppose the imperialism of the USA under control of the Republican/Democratic duopoly.  Use of the wealth of our nation should be to enhance quality of life for We The People rather than for imperialism.  Some people vote accordingly.
