The best explanation of passive/aggressive behavior I’ve seen is the following——It’s a large dog with his front paws on your shoulders, licking your face, and peeing on your shoes.  

An example could be to refer to “Karens” rather than using the “B” word, due to delicacy.

And so comes to mind the Republican/Democratic duopoly.  One wonders why.

FACTually, the US isn’t intended to squabble over whether to pay our accumulated debt, but rather to negotiate during budget talks.  One suspects both branches of the Republican/Democratic duopoly got what they wanted, because capitalistic hierarchical Establishment interests are connected.      –“No one got everything they wanted but the American people got what they needed,” Biden said, highlighting the “compromise and consensus” in the deal. “We averted an economic crisis and an economic collapse.”

The people in the path of the Mountain Pipeline were harmed by the debt-ceiling negotiations, which permitting was never actually a requirement in a negotiation about paying US debt that also was not a prerequisite to anything.  Big business won and people and the environment lost under corporatist Joe Biden and McCarth, Jeffries and McConnell..     –The Fiscal Responsibility Act orders expedited approval of all permits needed to complete the pipeline, which has been opposed by climate and conservation groups as well as local residents along its path. Backers of the plan say it would boost U.S. energy infrastructure and jobs in Appalachia and the Southeast.

Lee Camp discusses Russia, and touches upon the suspicions in Russia of Nazi’s.  Why are Americans becoming so comfortable with Hazi’s?

One recalls a starry-eyed CNN talking head asking Wolff Blitzer, lord help us, “is it true about Russia” (when confronted with the novel idea that Russia fought against Hitler’s Nazi’s)?   And so goes our educational system…..go ask Wolff Blitzer.       —

Going back long before Russia invaded Ukraine, the US MSM portrayed speech about WWII, if they engaged in such, as though Russia was on the opposite side from the USA in WWII.  Some MSM talking head innocents, when confronted with the reality that Russia was the mainstay in the struggle against Hitler’s Nazi’s, seemed shocked….SHOCKED…..

And so goes indoctrination.

To understand the price paid by Russian local communities during WWII will help Americans to consider the trepidation some Russians may feel toward Nazi’s.      –On September 8, 1941, German forces closed in around the Soviet city of Leningrad, initiating a siege that would last nearly 900 days and claim the lives of 800,000 civilians.

World War II’s most infamous siege began a little over two months after the launch of “Operation Barbarossa,” Adolf Hitler’s surprise invasion of the Soviet Union.

During WWII while American youth groups were forming teams to monitor the American skies for Nazi planes, Russian local communities were eating wood to stay alive…….tomato….tomoto……

The C-Span call-in discussion this morning was about whether the US voting age should be changed.  The voting age was changed from 21 to 18 in 1971 after a campaign by young people demanding this change because if boys were drafted into the military to die for capitalism at the age of 18, they should be able to also vote.  Young people in 1971 were different from of 2023, one may observe.   —

In 2023, one has heard a sufficient number of MSM talking heads touch on the reality of bad treatment toward Veterans returning from Vietnam without mentioning the high number of returning Vietnam Veterans who were implicit in the anti-war movement.  Go figure.

One person’s observation is that youngsters of 2023 are more intelligent and sophisticated than in 1971, but probably with lower common sense.  Youngsters of 2023 also seem more torpid.  That’s probably a good thing for Establishment.  

Someone mentioned the FACT that the brains of teens aren’t fully developed as yet.  Alternatively the other side of that coin is the stagnant indoctrination into Establishment-think that happens via a capitalistic education and then inculcation into corporate indenture.  By this time a young person’s brain will have developed but into what?

Capture of the adult minds of voters into each branch of the Democratic/Republican duopoly, both of which promote capitalism, but display as offering alternatives, seems more frightening that a mind pre indoctrination but not fully developed.      –“In recent days, some actions by visitors have led to the endangerment of people and wildlife and resulted in the death of wildlife,” the park said in a news release on Thursday. “The park calls on visitors to protect wildlife by understanding how their actions can negatively impact wildlife.

From lakotalaw———        It’s important that enterprising reporters cover Native issues in the right way. Today, I’m happy to highlight a solid example of such reporting. When protest is a crime, part one: the Standing Rock effect is the first of a multi-part podcast from the talented team at Outside/In, a division of New Hampshire Public Radio. It examines the criminalization of protest in America through the lens of Indigenous resistance. Both my father, Lakota Law co-director Chase Iron Eyes, and I sat down with reporter and producer Justine Paradis to lend our perspectives. I encourage you to listen to what we had to say.

In 2016 and 2017, when we formed the resistance camps at Standing Rock to stop the Dakota Access pipeline (DAPL), it quickly became apparent that our movement was going to have an unusual kind of impact. Other tribes showed up in force. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez traveled to our homelands and decided while there to run for office. U.S. veterans arrived on the scene in support of our cause, rattling the established order. In all, tens of thousands of people helped us make worldwide news, and we succeeded in raising public consciousness to the point that President Obama actually shut DAPL’s construction down.

You probably know what happened next. Newly elected, Donald Trump quickly overturned Obama’s decision and fast-tracked the pipeline. And then, the conservative backlash really kicked in. Over the next several years, states began creating policies meant to chill citizens’ right to free expression under the guise of infrastructure protection. The federal government even tried to make it legal for law enforcement to kill protestors. Thankfully, after people like you sent thousands of messages to legislators, that particular bill didn’t make it out of the Senate.

Nevertheless, things remain tenuous today, and that’s why we must keep shining our lights on nefarious efforts to silence our voices and roll back our rights. Using clips and a series of interviews that include personal stories — like my own about watching my mother get arrested — Justine and her team deftly do just that. They examine the NoDAPL movement, various forms of direct action, and the history of Indigenous resistance. Please give the podcast a listen, and share it with your network. Then keep your eye out for the second episode, slated to drop later this week!

Wopila tanka — thank you for being a part of our resistance.

By the way, jut a local news note, In Upstate NY I’ve just turned on the H.vac to counteract the Canadian fires…….WTF?……No Climate Change here……bring on the Mountain Pipeline permitting and more fossil fuels…..I’m actually concerned about the wildlife outside.  I must admit the peach-colored sunlight coming in the kitchen window is beautiful.        —

Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters EXPLOSIVE Interview Sets Record Straight

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!
