US imperialism is based upon the notion of “spreading democracy” around the globe as the US inflicts capitalism which is hierarchical and anti-democratic upon American citizens at home.  Reagan accosted America with Reaganomics so now Biden in a strange twist of emulation chooses to hook his star to the “Trickle Down” principles and has self-labeled policies as Bidenomics.  So Biden can inflict “Trickle Down” without saying the offensive reality.

Other language gymnastics are apparent.  Mr. Holtz-Eskin stared into the C-Span camera this morning (link below) and boldly informed the American people that “inflation is coming down”, as he ‘splained to a caller who asked the reason for the anomaly of “inflation coming down” while costs for living are not.

One hears little to nothing about the costs of insurance, both home and auto, that have increased,  by way of the liability transferred to the general public of global warming that is a component in the unprecedented profits by business that uses natural resources and human resources as though business are entitled to both.  

Social Security was mentioned by several callers, and the misstatement that Social Security is an entitlement was corrected by callers who reminded that Social Security is an Earned Benefit paid for by the workers over 10, 20, 30, 40, or 50 years of tax on income.  Capitalistic hierarchy recently attempted the bait-and-switch, using state/business-owned MSM to spread the lie that Social Security is an entitlement.  Anyone can investigate for themselves the financial industry/government approved training of financial representatives in any and all levels of education to find that financial representatives have been schooled that Social Security is an Earned Benefit and then said reps were marched out into the public to spread the good news.  This surely motivated compliant workers to contribute seriously large portions of remuneration to the government for their future Earned Benefit.  All levels of training such as LUTC, ChFC, CLU and CFP use the Social Security standard of Earned Benefit.

Legislatively-mandated continuing education use the standard of Earned Benefit for Social Security.

If Social Security Earned Benefits are now entitlements, this feels like a monumental bait-and-switch by the legislative/business partnership that has worked to transform “our system” from a democracy to capitalism.  

And this is education in the financial industry.  Education under control of hierarchical capitalism is as cynical.  One has heard those holding degrees from institutions of higher learning parrot notions of superiority when FACTually they are simply indoctrinated into capitalism.  They are also shackled to capitalism by ridiculous levels of student debt that enriched hierarchy while diminishing the mental capacities of graduates to critically think.  Hubris seems the only gained characteristic from too much of the educational system.

Mr.Holtz-Eakin was also asked about the puny taxation of corporations in 2023 as compared to the robust taxation of corporations in the 1950’s.  His answer was another of interest as Mr. Holtz-Eakin said (paraphrase) that in the ’50;s US corporations held a worldwide monopoly and could therefore afford said taxation, in direct challenge to the FACT of unheard-of profiteering of corporations in 2023.  And to add insult to injury, Mr. Holtz-Eakin said this without giggling.

Douglas Holtz-Eakin on President Biden’s Economic Record

Douglas Holtz-Eakin talked about the U.S. economy and Biden administration economic policies.

As to the new-found propaganda from politicians and MSM about a slowing of inflation, could the reason be to indoctrinate Social security Earned Benefits recipients into accepting a paltry COLA requisite with reduced inflation that is double talk rather than based on cost of living.  Hmmm……

An excellent topic for discussion on C-Span that you won’t hear due to compliance to a corrupt system is Citizens United.  The highly questionable Supreme Court inflicted legalized but not legitimized corruption in our electoral process by supporting an odd view that money is Speech.  Also the weird notion is included that corporations are people.  Factually we now have a municipality considering allowing corporations to vote in local elections as “people”.  

https://apnews.com/article/local-elections-voting-corporate-entities-c9d0e49f5e475b45cb957fbec110d3e7  – DOVER, Del. (AP) — Lawmakers in the Delaware House of Representatives have approved legislation authorizing a small town in the southern part of the state to allow business entities, including corporations and limited liability companies, to vote in municipal elections.

Biden, one heard, jokes about preference of corporations over people by quipping “I’m from Delaware, you know”….snorkel, snorkel….

By the way, isn’t Delaware the home of shell corporations that so many politicians and oligarchs use to keep private their personal finances from prying citizen eyes. 

https://news.uchicago.edu/how-tax-dodging-and-corporate-secrecy-found-home-delaware-hal-weitzman  – In his new book, What’s The Matter With Delaware?, Weitzman goes down the complex Delaware rabbit hole to discover how this tiny U.S. state became the incorporation capital of the world—uncovering everything from criminal conspiracies to wealthy tax avoidance to political dark money.

The troublesome public/private partnership as manifested by the Hillary Clinton State-Department/Clinton Foundation is an example of in-your-face actions by oligarchs.  The switch from democracy to capitalism put the US on a track of a continuum toward organized crime, where in 2023 we have arrived.

But as Zurlina Mawell ‘splained about Obama, “everybody does it”.   Apparently so in some spheres of acquaintance.

And not to be outdone, it appears anything the Democrats can do, the Republicans can do better.  Consider—




During a Congressional hearing about the PGA/LIV merger, a PGA rep elevated the conversation by saying he wasn’t sufficiently racist to condemn an entire nation in reference to Saudi Arabia, as though the implication of Saudi Arabia into the 9/11 attack on NYC and the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center didn’t happen.

Such convoluting of ideas is precisely hierarchical.

Anderson Cooper challenges the ability for Cornel West to mention the millions of Iraqi’s killed in the US “war on terrorism”.  Combined with the implication of Saudi Arabia in the 9/11 attack, and the response from the USA against not Saudi Arabia, and the new business connections between Saudi Arabia and the USA, and one’s head spins.  Who are we?

One heard a MSM speaker remind Americans of the Constitutionally protected right to travel.  Who would suggest differently; but what about common sense?  Advertising is the tool by which some people have been indoctrinated into viewing travel as an act of sophistication and superiority, rather like owning a degree from an institution of higher learning.  Be that as it may, in our current global warming crisis, and considering the general critical thinking skills of so many people, travel may not work any better than holding a degree to institutions of higher learning.  Infinite growth using finite resources is nonsense, even if Constitutional.

Denial may be embedded in the thinking of so many who straddle the transportation v. global warming expanding chasm.  Some lawmakers stress the need for helicopter rides for the tourists to national parks when such frivolous childishness uphold both deterioration of wild places and the environment.  Anecdotally one recalls a national park speech by Obama who vacuously seemed to interject fun into a trip to the wilderness parks, by suggesting a stop on the way to purchase an off-track vehicle with which to terrorize people and animals in otherwise pristine recesses.

House Session

The House votes 351-69 to approve a five-year FAA Reauthorization Bill.

Travel is supported by hierarchical Establishment as the sport of the day, probably due to the ubiquitous money-leaking into the pockets of capitalists.  MSNBC recently aired an interview with a serious author who discussed the reality of global warming, and then the MSM talking head cheerily switched to a discussion of how best to use AI to ensure your travel was sufficiently attuned to global warming-weather catastrophes that could “inconvenience” the vapid traveler, and so the better to side step the troublesome catastrophe.  And so goes news.

I grow tired of saying it. So this will be the last time. If churches want to butt into politics — then they can start paying some taxes too. Agree?–end of lakotaman 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.
