When you say what the rest of us should be able to figure out for ourselves anyway, you get censored—
The Secret Reason The US Is Still In Syria

A point can be made that a curious collaboration between bureaucrats and politicians and big-money interests around the globe, have worked to profit at the expense of local community members and the environment. Due to censorship through MSM and even local news reports, few will be aware of the struggle that has gone on for nearly 20 years in the Northeast, due to fracking. — https://stateimpact.npr.org/pennsylvania/2022/11/29/gasland-driller-pleads-guilty-will-pay-millions-for-new-water-system-in-dimock/ —
“There were failures at every level,” he said. “The local elected officials where someone would normally go, ignored them. The regulators whose job it is to set the boundaries for industry to operate in, failed.”
Shapiro and residents also pointed the finger at the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.
“It’s the people’s lawyer who got it done,” said Spitzer, a retired school teacher. “Our own elected officials, DEP, EPA failed us miserably.”–end of npr info–
C-Span hosted discussions today on the topic of the railroad strike threat. This is a threat to the public due to abuse of railroad employees by their employers, who don’t seem to recognize violations of human rights. Nobody should be denied paid sick days, although in 2022 working people seem to have forgotten that in the past, paid sick days were typical.
A comment to C-Span arrived at about 7:44AM. Why do unions support financially, the Democratic Party. One sees a distinction between union bosses and rank-and-file union members. Hierarchy seems to consist of union bosses, politicians, and CEO’s, the stage for their…..let’s use the war-game euphemism and call it a theater…..consists of rank-and-file union members and the public.
This is capitalism, which is more enchanting in theory than it is in practice.
So Joe Biden is known to be a friend of unions because he says so, or because union bosses choose to give campaign money to the Democrats. One recalls the for-profit endorsements that shoe-horned Biden into a Presidential primary win. One would think voters might begin to connect the dots.
The USA doesn’t even have a 1-payer comprehensive public health care policy, as do other industrialized nations; so why should a worker have a paid sick day? (sarcasm)
What Is US Doing In Africa? Ann Garrison & Lee Camp

Here’s food for thought……Ann Garrison suggest that a nation that doesn’t have ostentatious display, is a good thing……….Let’s talk about this…..
****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. https://www.lwv.org/newsroom/press-releases/league-refuses-help-perpetrate-fraud–LEAGUE REFUSES TO “HELP PERPETRATE A FRAUD”
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!
