An important and ignored topic is the negligence from elected officials and bureaucrats toward the local community members in the USA.  Some politicians seem to cater to the whims of big-money interests using the deflection of the importance of the economy.  The so-called economy envisioned by these bureaucrats and elected officials seem to be limited to the transfer of the wealth of the nation from the 100% to the 1%.

NYS is currently experiencing an intense winter-weather event and especially in the Western portion of NYS.

Politicians beholden to big-money campaign donations byway of Citizens United have promoted the definition of “the economy” in terms that are acceptable to oligarchs.      –Families in western New York were scrambling to find food, medicine and other essentials Monday after a historic blizzard blocked roads and cut off electricity, forcing many major supermarkets and pharmacies to close.

Aday after Gov. Kathy Hochul strong-armed $564.8 million in casino revenues out of the Seneca Nation and targeted it to the new Buffalo Bills stadium, the tribe’s president Wednesday reacted with an angry statement that attacked the governor’s husband for his employer’s potential ties to the new facility.–end of buffalonews info––2-5-million-upgrades-              –“I was confident from the very beginning that baseball would stay in the city of Binghamton,” Mayor Rich David said, “and once we had a new owner who shared that vision, it’s really about how we work together to accomplish our common goals.”

Since then, the former Binghamton Mets underwent a name change to the Binghamton Rumble Ponies, and a $2.5 million project to upgrade their stadium was underway. Some of those improvements include a new picnic deck area that overlooks the field, a new kids zone and a family center on the third base line.

What’s the connection?  One person’s opinion is as follows—–

***People in the Southern Tier have watched a business model from politicians that includes ‘splaining to the locals the reason they want a baseball stadium

***Nothing against baseball stadiums, but when funded by taxpayer dollars and benefiting oligarchs from outside of our region, questions are logical

***Some people believe better use of said funding can be imagined

***Some people have suggested more support for local health care, day care, or funding for local first responders, many of whom are volunteers

In light of the tragedy that is unfolding in Erie County, here’s another few ideas.  The money could fund larger snow plows and sanders, and how about each Upstate NY household receive a generator?

Whoever can’t imagine the need for a household generator in Upstate NY, hasn’t spent 4 days without electricity (heat) in an Upstate NY snow storm.  The USA spends untold dollars on military equipment, and currently for Ukraine, while local US communities go begging and worse.

These are reason some people are less spoil sports on the topic of ball stadiums than they are  enthusiastic on the topic of lifesaving measures for the locals.

Also we could have manufacturing facilities in the region for said lifesaving equipment, along with local installation and maintenance of equipment, that would keep the wealth of the local community local.

Curious is the ongoing reminder from obsolete energy industries that solar and wind energy production isn’t reliable.    —

Mr. Camp reveals, by the way, the Cuban attack on US embassy personnel was found to be crickets.  Having not heard that, still the little guys can drive one over the edge in August.  They, however, are nothing as compared to the ticks.  Learn to recognize real theats.

****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—–          —#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.       —

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 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.

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!
