Mocked by the White house Press Secretary, one need only consider the source.  If you can turn it into a joke, perhaps the deluded will giggle.

(He isn’t thought to have actually fiddled; the Roman public could have only wished that’s what he was doing. Can we get Biden to fiddle? We would all be better off if fiddling was what Trump was about.)    —

The DNC campaign strategy seems to continue to be snarky disrespect for “the other”.  It’s probably better than ‘splaining to their voters the reasons they aren’t fulfilling campaign promises.  

Manipulative tactics are in place by US government bureaucrats and politicians that literally undermine principles of democracy.  To label protesters as domestic terrorists is a tactic that needs a discussion  —          —In January, police killed the environmental activist known as Tortuguita in a hail of bullets, while they, an autopsy revealed, sat cross-legged with their hands up. The medical examiner ruled it homicide.

There isn’t more you can do to someone protesting your actions than kill them, but authorities are trying to ruin the lives of many others with domestic terrorism charges that call for many years in prison. The state actors behind Cop City, if you somehow can’t see it, are engaging in the overt employment of the very overreaching, harmful powers activists are concerned the facility will foment.

Known by the friends they keep——         –On the heels of launching an effort to raise the federal minimum wage to $17 an hour over five years, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders on Monday announced upcoming rallies to demand the pay hike in three states, where he will be joined by Bishop William Barber II.

Bernie Sanders pals around with Bishop Barber II, while Joe Biden has Jim Clyburn.  —

Not a mistake, they know what they’re doing.  Also the abandonment of debt relief for college funding for pupils, it was Biden who encouraged removal of educational debt from bankruptcy availability that was previously available.  Availability of bankruptcy as is permitted for other debt, would give borrowers control as to how much if any, and when to pay back.  The reason educational debt is excluded may be reinforced safety for lenders and encouraged relentless college tuition costs.  So goes Biden.—-   –Environmental protection groups warned that the text of the so-called Fiscal Responsibility Act of 2023—which, if approved by Congress in the coming days would hold federal nonmilitary spending at its current level in the coming year and increase it by 1% in 2025—includes a ” colossal error” by the Biden administration.

The following is a report from RT.  Russia is our enemy, so skepticism is the logical attitude with which to approach this story.  But the view is raised as to those supporting “The West” as applies to the war between Ukraine and Russia, based upon a notion that the people of Ukraine want “Western values” to prevail, is the complication of NATO that is challenging Russia, questionable in Serbia when Serbian protesters are challenged by NATO troops.  Eventually the absurdity that is at the core of every war becomes apparent.–        –Video footage published by RT Balkan has captured the moment a protest by Serbs in northern Kosovo devolved into a melee between the demonstrators and NATO’s Kosovo Force (KFOR).

The protestors faced off against KFOR soldiers outside municipal buildings in the town of Zvecan on Monday morning, where a newly-installed ethnic Albanian mayor was set to take office following an election boycotted by the town’s Serb majority.Following the melee on Monday, NATO and Western officials blamed the Serb protesters for instigating violence. Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic accused Kosovo’s Albanian prime minister, Albin Kurti, of trying to “provoke a major conflict between the Serbs and NATO,” and warned that Serbia “will not allow a pogrom or the killing of its people.”–end of rt info—-

One doesn’t expect many Americans to read the history of the region, but if they did, at least the complexity of Eastern Europe would be better understood.  American chauvinism too easily paints with a broad brush, current events that are a snap-shot-in-time of a fascinating history.  —    –The book’s twenty-eight chapters, divided into five sections, do a masterful job of tracing Ukraine’s immense diversity—geographical, economic, political, cultural, and religious—and how Ukrainian politicians, intellectuals, military, and religious leaders have navigated the diverse claims made about its people and to their land. Often, these claims were literal, as in the 1667 partitioning of the Cossack state, or Hetmanate, between Muscovy and Poland. Fifty years later, Russia’s victory over Sweden at Poltava and the subsequent labeling of Ukraine’s eastern half as “Little Russia” populated by “Little Russians” forged an enduring narrative that remains central to Putin’s justification for the February 2022 invasion. At the same time, Plokhy amply demonstrates how Ukrainian rulers and thinkers influenced Russian institutions; for example, how monks at the Cave monastery helped to establish Kyiv as the first capital of the Muscovite tsars, “the myth still accepted by most Russians today about the Kyivan origins of their nation” (121). In the twentieth century, Ukrainian leaders’ support for Moscow both was crucial to Soviet achievements and made them the targets of purges. Moreover, Plokhy reminds readers that Khrushchev, Brezhnev, and Gorbachev all had family ties to Ukraine.

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.       —

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 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!
