VOTE FOR PEACE
The rhetoric from Establishment is often to pray for peace. Would we be more in tune with reality to vote for peace?
Forever war can only continue with complicity. And by the way, shouldn’t Congress approve wars?—-
30 Dems RETRACT Statement For Peace!

The following 60’s anti-war reminder is timely because this week heard from a young local-news reporter, an innocent statement that hid a lie. She mentioned that someone had “volunteered for the Vietnam War. I’ve heard military personnel on MSM use the phrase volunteer, with pride at the large number of youngsters who signed up to go to Vietnam in the ’60’s. This is a FACT that hides the TRUTH. Youngsters out of high school were drafted o fight for capitalism in Vietnam in the ’60’s and this meant being drafted into the army where apparently was the highest risk. The death rate in Vietnam was high. If one “volunteered” one could choose the marines, air force, or navy which were also risky, but slightly less so than the army. The 2022 youngster reporting FACTS rather than TRUTH isn’t indicative of a Free Press, or for that matter an informed education.
https://www.movementandthemadman.com/ —The MOVEMENT and the “MADMAN” shows how two antiwar protests in the fall of 1969 — the largest the country had ever seen — caused President Nixon to cancel what he called his “madman” plans for a massive escalation of the U.S. war in Vietnam, including his threats to use nuclear weapons.

No one in their right mind would not agree that war is a patriarchal construct that is a fundamental threat to the safety of children and women. Because war is profitable it is beneficial to patriarchy to maintain an undercurrent of subservience from those who are not a part of patriarchy. To that end patriarchy is about this business of repression.

This is an apt moment to mention that Herschel Walker warns patriarchy that if they come after me, they’ll come after you (paraphrase). This feels like a referral to the following—
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

*Of interest is mention of socialists being targeted first….hmmm…..
*Walker is sounding resoundingly like a victim
*And why are the mean women (good place to use the “b” word, patriarchy) picking on Herschel Walker and the Republicans?
*What have the Republicans and HW done to women?
*Oh, wait, you mean the human rights violations against women when patriarchy demands rights over women
*It’s almost like the war mongers understand the advantage of control over half the population who is harmed in patriarchy, including advantages of predatory economies and war
One is aware of those who hold in their hands women’s human rights are those officiating within a war machine. Vote accordingly.
Democrats ask ‘what’s the endgame,’ then withdraw the question (which nonetheless persists).

Portside offers perspective on the Proxy War with Russia at the same time any underlying rationale is ignored, as pertains to US-public interests. One cares nothing about the personality failings of Putin. One recognizes the destruction of war.
Has the public been deluded into believing what is good for patriarchy which includes a rigged economy and imperialism, is also good for local-community members?

The results have been disastrous—and in some cases, helped lead to the most recent crisis. While these partnerships differ from privatization because the city still owns the utilities, they are a harbinger of what privatization could entail.

Water is a topic of concern across the nation. https://wnbf.com/binghamton-johnson-city-sewage-plant-lawsuit-settlement/
Some people have spoken of priority placed on a growth too defined in terms of greed, privilege, and politics rather than on the health of local community interest.
Infinite growth using finite resources seems harmful.

Native Americans And White Farmers Form An Unlikely Alliance–Farmers have long supported oil pipelines, Fischbach told NBC News, because “we all need fuel and gas to run. But now they’re realizing that maybe, maybe the Native Americans weren’t all wrong. Because it wasn’t just an issue about whether we needed something — it’s an issue of protecting the environment, protecting our land, and protecting your own rights.”After Calling For Negotiations To End Ukraine War, DSA And ‘Progressive’ Democrats Demand Escalation

From www.hawkinsmattera.org — Despite efforts by the New York State Democratic Party and their functionaries to silence us, we have broken through to the media with this campaign’s message of Inclusive Democracy, a Green New Deal, and an Economic Bill of Rights. We ask that you share this important news coverage to your community, families and allies:
- Capital Tonight Video: Green Party wages daunting write-in campaign to win back ballot access in New York
- Albany Times Union Op-Ed: Kathy Hochul, Lee Zeldin and nobody else
“Walk into any supermarket and you’ll find a variety of breakfast cereals to match nearly any taste. Shop online and you can select, say, shoes to meet your idiosyncratic preferences.
This is what we’ve come to expect in this age of choice. Almost everywhere there are alternatives to the same-old boring whatever. Nearly everywhere, we have options to satisfy every niche, variety that feels infinite and empowering.
Everywhere, except at the ballot box…”
- The New York Times: For First Time Since 1946, New Yorkers Have Just 2 Choices for Governor
“…this year, for the first time in over 75 years, the state ballot appears destined to offer only two choices: Gov. Kathy Hochul, a Democrat, and Representative Lee Zeldin, a Republican.
The paucity of options is largely due to former Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, who championed changes in election law two years ago that made it far more difficult for third parties to get on the ballot. The changes to ballot access law tripled the number of voter signatures required for groups to get on the November ballot and forced political parties to qualify every two years instead of four.”
- Focus on Albany Video: A conversation with Howie Hawkins about the campaign for Governor
The Times nails the issue: Cuomo, Hochul, and their Legislature Lackeys have brought democracy in New York to a 75-year low. And the bar was already disgracefully low.
But we can beat this and make our elections more fair and equitable than ever — with your help. We ask that you donate to this campaign today so we can continue fighting through Election Day.
And, speaking of Election Day, we ask that you take a moment to look at how you will need to write in our names for Governor and Lt. Governor, and to share this information with voters:
