Short of harm to another or the environment, this could work as a policy.

Knowing little to nothing about the Trans issue, one doesn’t touch upon the matter.  But inordinate interjection into the personal lives of others is a curiosity, and doesn’t feel healthy.  Having noticed and acknowledge the overall equilibrium from the Native American community on so many topics about nature and humanity, one tends to trust such views.

From lakotaaw info–When South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem signed HB 1080 into law on Feb. 14, it felt like a gut punch to me and many others. This horrible bill, which will prevent healthcare professionals from administering gender affirmative care to minors in my state, continues Noem’s pattern of attacking trans people for political gain. As a gender nonconforming individual, this issue is particularly close to my heart. So today, I hope you’ll read my blog and watch my short video, in which I share my perspective and fight back against a culture war that threatens children’s lives.

That’s not hyperbole. Discriminatory laws that target trans youth put already at-risk populations in further danger. These laws and the rhetoric that accompany them only increase the likelihood that trans kids will be targeted, bullied, and attacked. Studies show that giving access to gender-affirming care and activities drastically reduces the high risk of suicide faced by trans youth. Young people, like everyone else, want to be happy. They want to express who they truly are on the inside.

Far right politicians like Noem prefer to ignore all that and use the pain and uncertainty of gender nonconforming youth as a cynical political tool. It’s our job as a society to recognize and protect the most vulnerable among us — including children. But when our “leaders” place their own agenda to demonize the “woke mob” above the health and safety of trans kids, they’re doing the exact opposite.

Of course, this issue also dovetails with the larger pattern of bigoted politicians historically marginalizing communities of color to preserve their own power. Well, I’ve had enough — and I hope you have, too! Please check out the rest of my thoughts on this, then stand with me and so many other young people who live each day with a vision to create a more just and inclusive world.

On the topic of non-interference, shared by a NYRAD acquaintance from bygone NYS anti-fracking days, with appreciation.  —  https://www.facebook.com/billhuston/posts/pfbid034caVSp5txnNNPbH21mgRTaZVNpyQAascaDCKAEhmSsE2JGa3CWBNGvcBBPGLgaCnl   —

A recent visitor to the Double Helix Ranch came to pick up a couple of heifers he had purchased. He didn’t warn me that he was coming, so we had to ride around and find the herd. As we did, we had the following conversation:

Him: “Wow, you have great grass in this pasture. How long has it been since your cattle were in here?”–end of billhuston info–
A personal view is on the topic of the phenomenally natural interaction of Australian Indigenous people when living in traditional style, with their environment.  To understand or at least attempt to do so, by modern-day people, will remind us of the trade off between native ability and technological progress.  One wonders whether the so-called progress is a type of societal suicide.  Coincidentally it seems, according to reports, that the suicide rate of modern-day people is increasing, along with addled mental health.
Incidentally it seems that Siberian Indigenous people have also retained a link to that which modern-day people have willingly traded for convenience and advertising indulgence.

At least 23 protesters have been charged with domestic terrorism amid a week of action against the construction of “Cop City” in Atlanta, a proposed $90 million police training complex. Atlanta police detained 35 people and arrested 23 on the night of March 5, they claim, for vandalism against the Cop City construction site and violence towards police. Activists dispute this narrative. While video footage shows a small group torching the construction site and throwing fireworks towards police, according to activists, none of the 35 people detained were detained at the construction site itself. Earlier that day, demonstrators marched, and later attended a live music performance, as part of the larger week of action. Atlanta police detained protesters at these two events, activists report, which were both entirely peaceful.–end of popularresistance info–

Little to nothing is generally spoken of on the topic of the colonization of North America.  History in educational curriculum ignores the FACTS.    When Queen Elizabeth passed, MSM spoke of UK colonization around the globe while avoiding the same in the USA.  Outright lies as reported to have aired on a Right-supporting political “news” outlet is reported by Left-supporting political “news” outlets who apparently prefer censorship as an on-air method of bamboozling.

From popularresistance  —  https://popularresistance.org/defining-genocide-and-americas-selective-memory-when-it-comes-to-atrocities-committed-against-american-indians/        —

On December 9, 1984 the United Nations (UN) General Assembly approved the Genocide Convention and developed an international law that recognizes acts of genocide. Article 2 of the Genocide Convention lists the following acts. (a) Killing members of the group.  (b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group. (c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part. (d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group. (e) Forcibly transferring children of one group to another group. This criteria according to the UN convention constitutes genocide and is comparable to the canalization of the Americas (Simon 2007:52).  In Massachusetts in 1637, Captain John Endicott mounted a column of ninety men to Block Island. Their orders were to kill every male living there and steal as many children and women as possible due to the fact that they would “fetch a tidy sum in the West Indies slave markets” (Churchill 1997:171). This is only one example of the many instances recorded in the historical record and can be comparable to instances that have already been legally defined as genocide.

The massacre at Wounded Knee is another tragic event that is comparable to the second criteria listed above. –end of popularresistance info–

****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.

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!
