HEALTH IS ILLUSIVE
Capitalistic hierarchical Establishment in collaboration with state-run-corporate-owned MSM own the conversation that promotes running governments like a business that on a continuum is organized crime. This isn’t healthy for people or environment. Climate Change is a glaring evidence of the result.
https://socialistproject.ca/2021/11/g20-states-scheme-avoid-commitments-cop26/#more –Although the 26th meeting of the United Nations Conference of Parties (COP) in Glasgow, Scotland, is currently generating more news headlines than this year’s G20 summit, wealthy nations made many of their preliminary decisions on climate change at their club meeting before the global climate gathering. While they came to agreement on a handful of issues, such as cutting off funding to coal plants, and getting to “net-zero” emissions in a few decades, climate advocates slammed the pledges as “the bare minimum.” Draghi admitted, “It’s easy to suggest difficult things. It’s very very difficult to actually execute them.”–end of bullet info–
The same politicians posing at COP26 ignore regulation of commercial interests on the topic of profiteering byway of exploitation of natural resources (environment) and human resources (humanity)l What they do, not what they say…….——Monitization (sic) of both people and environment for profit is precisely implicit in capitalism. Is this truly what you want for your family? –https://popularresistance.org/wall-streets-latest-scheme-is-monetizing-nature-itself/ –[E]ven the creators of NACs admit that the ultimate goal is to extract near-infinite profits from the natural processes they seek to quantify and then monetize….Framed with the lofty talk of “sustainability” and “conservation”, media reports on the move in outlets like Fortune couldn’t avoid noting that NACs open the doors to “a new form of sustainable investment” which “has enthralled the likes of BlackRock CEO Larry Fink over the past several years even though there remain big, unanswered questions about it.”Webb cites researcher and journalist Cory Morningstar, who maintains that one of the aims of creating “Nature’s Economy” and packaging it via NACs is to drastically advance massive land grab efforts made by Wall Street and the oligarch class in recent years, including those made by Wall Street firms and billionaires like Bill Gates during the COVID crisis. The land grabs facilitated through the development of NACs, however, will largely target indigenous communities in the developing world.–end of popularresistance info–
NACs seem to be the modern version of the Discovery Doctrine –http://ili.nativeweb.org/sdrm_art.html –When Christopher Columbus first set foot on the white sands of Guanahani island, he performed a ceremony to “take possession” of the land for the king and queen of Spain, acting under the international laws of Western Christendom. Although the story of Columbus’ “discovery” has taken on mythological proportions in most of the Western world, few people are aware that his act of “possession” was based on a religious doctrine now known in history as the Doctrine of Discovery. Even fewer people realize that today – five centuries later – the United States government still uses this archaic Judeo-Christian doctrine to deny the rights of Native American Indians.–end of discovery doctrine info———NACs need to be monitored closely, if permitted at all. We need to discuss free markets as opposed to organized crime and exploitation.
Another interesting result of questionable governance is the “problem” of Social Security. The fund into which workers have paid over 30, 40,and 50 years is advertised as running out of money. The solution? Cutting back on benefits and requiring elders to work into their 70’s and 80’s. Meanwhile youngsters are urged to take out extraordinary debt to fund education in institutions of higher learning to make them job-ready for employment that is unavailable at a requisite remuneration. As boldly as natural resources are exploited, so are human resources exploited.
Trade training is looked down upon by too many of those indoctrinated into belief that life isn’t worth living without a debt-encumbered degree from an institution of higher learning that too often won’t insure a living wage. And so a vibrant workforce enthusiastic to launch life into autonomy and self-respect doesn’t happen, with the result of the share of young workers for contributions into the system of Social Security, is missing. And parents who have paid into the system are supporting too many would-be workers at the time when they could enjoy said self-respect and autonomy by contributing in a meaningful way to the society in which we all live. And by the way, live a fulfilling life.
The framework for this curious social system seems more promoting of our Pyramid-Scheme economy than functions of a workable system that could be described in the Preamble to the US Constitution–We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.—end of preamble—
That I’m sounding too much like a Republican troubles me, too. The circle may be complete when Republicans take seriously the reality of Climate Change. That the Democratic/Republican duopoly apparently is working a system of good-cop-bad-cop to maintain the interests of the 1% isn’t lost on some people.
If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Some people have remembered the delight of existence in a natural ecology and have been rewarded by The Creator with an effortless garden that is natural and needs no maintenance or expense. It is the symbiotic relationship between nature and humanity, if only we can let it be—-https://www.audubon.org/news/native-trees-incredible-fall-foliage-and-birds-love-them?ms=digital-eng-email-ea-x-engagement_20211104_eng-email_fall-trees&utm_source=ea&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=engagement_20211104_eng-email&utm_content=fall-trees&emci=75236de2-d140-ec11-9820-c896653b26c8&emdi=61d195b2-d440-ec11-9820-c896653b26c8&ceid=399811 — Now that the foliage is finally turning, we get to indulge in fiery-topped trees and landscapes for the next several weeks.But trees provide more than just eye candy: Native species especially help foster entire ecosystems by sheltering and feeding wildlife.—–It could be thought that those who recognie the gifts of The Creator are as surely sheltered and fed by wildlife.–end of audubon info–
It is necessary for humanity to demand an end to imperialism, greed, and the resulting wars that have enriched those at the top of our Pyramid Scheme economy if Climate Change is to be taken seriously…..what they do, not what they say——-https://www.jonathan-cook.net/2021-11-08/military-pollution-climate/ —Leaders at the COP26 summit have no intention of tackling the growing environmental impacts caused by their ‘defence’ spendingUnlike the farming and logging industries, or the manufacturing industries, or the fossil fuel industries, efforts to curb the growth in military spending – let alone reverse it – are off the table at the COP26 summit.–end of jonathan-cook info–
C-Span is a forum where views of members of the public can be heard. –7:25AM–caller–paraphrase–People want pipelines to open up to bring down the cost of gasoline.
In FACT, that “opening up pipelines will bring down the cost of gasoline in the USA” is validly questionable. The Keystone Pipeline will bring Canadian tar sands oil from Canada to an US seaport to ship to China.
Aside from this FACT about the Keystone Pipeline the US fossil fuel industry sells product to foreign nations regardless of raising prices to US consumers. Government also grossly subsidies the industry, according to reports— https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-021-02847-2 –Fossil-fuel subsidies are one of the biggest financial barriers hampering the world’s shift to renewable energy sources. Each year, governments around the world pour around half a trillion dollars into artificially lowering the price of fossil fuels — more than triple what renewables receive. This is despite repeated pledges by politicians to end this kind of support, including statements from the G7 and G20 groups of nations.–end of nature info–
A direct link has been identified between the fossil fuel industry and Climate Change. If our politicians pass laws that shelter the fossil fuel industry, a reason can be imagined in the bribery implicit in money in politics via Citizens United. Stated differently, the US taxpayer-funded subsidies passed to the fossil fuel industry underpins campaign contributions to politicians byway of Citizens United that is causing Climate Change. This seems an odd concept of governance.

We are watching an astounding diversity of views expressed from the public from all walks of life, demanding a system change. The system that needs changing seems to be capitalism that is propagandized as being the best system for the most people. This advertisement has been proved to be wrong. We could try free markets that in FACT are not capitalism.
Politicians bought into public office via Citizens United including contributions from the health care industry have argued that a 1-payer comprehensive public health care policy will dilute the excellence of health care in the USA and lead to higher prices and rationing of health care. In FACT, capitalism is undermining public health in the USA—-http://healthjusticemonitor.org/ —Summary: A new study quantifies the loss in life expectancy due to COVID-19 in nations around the world. The US is in the worst tier, with a drop of nearly two years. Blame lays at the feet of mishandling by Trump, but also long-term degradation of public health and primary care access. Both must be rebuilt.

https://bracingviews.com/2021/11/09/our-national-health-care-plan/ –Fifteen years ago, I saw a bumper sticker on a colleague’s car:Our National Health Care Plan — Don’t Get Sick.That’s about as succinct an expression of U.S. health care as you can make. We have no national health care plan. Your only hope is not to get sick, or, if you do get a serious (read: expensive) illness, to die quickly before you and yours are bankrupted.Profiting from sickness is truly an “exceptional” feature of American capitalism. Isn’t it wonderful that you have the “freedom” to purchase private, for-profit, health insurance that costs you hundreds of dollars a month, with deductibles of $5000 or $10,000 or higher, with co-pays and various other costs and restrictions? Truly, freedom isn’t free!A reminder: Joe Biden ran against Medicare for all and said he’d veto it if it ever reached his desk, which it obviously won’t. But he did promise a public (government-provided) option for health care, a promise he has failed to keep, just as Barack Obama failed to keep his promise for a public option in 2008-09. And the Democrats wonder why so many people either don’t vote or vote for an even more pro-business party.–end of bracingviews info–
The Democratic Establishment are aghast over the dropping poll numbers of Biden, a President shoe-horned into office by pharmacy-purchased endorsement by politicians wealthy with campaign contributions, having cut the legs from beneath the Presidential candidate a majority of Democrats and Independents were tending, in the person of Bernie Sanders. Independents and Democrats were then advised to “hold your nose and vote”. What could go wrong?

Others forged a path toward human rights for women not so very long ago, and while struggling with restrictions more marked than do young women of 2021. Dependence on the good will of the same entities intent on maintaining control may not be wise. To rely on the foundations upon which original female rights were built may make more sense.

Let’s get Stronger, Bolder & Ready!
Saturday, November 13th at 11AM – 3:30PM – Online
We’ll be talking about reproductive justice and abortion rights; the intersections of voting rights and women’s economic empowerment, and what we can all do to advance a social justice agenda. Together, we can be Stronger, Bolder & Ready to stop the attacks on our autonomy and freedom and defend our rights for generations to come. Sign-up NOW and get the full day’s agenda below!—–end of now info–If reliance upon patriarchal condescension isn’t supporting human rights for you, please fall back on the ages-old strength of the feminine.An interesting change on the topic of patriarchal presumption was displayed Monday morning on Morning Joe at about 6:55AM. Awaiting Washington Journal on C-Span that begins its forum of public call-in at 7:00AM each day, one landed on Morning Joe to see Rev. Al. Rev. Al has been in the bulwark of misogyny as political campaign strategy, in one persons’ view…..especially toward white women (his words, not mine). Rev. Al may have come to realize the patriarchal ploy of pitting one woman against another is becoming too obvious. Instead Rev; Al was trumpeting the valuable characteristics of black women. Well, if Rev. Al says so, it must be true. But anyway to at least hear patriarchal Establishment praising one group of women in place of denigrating another group of women is a start. Of course, neither strategy is necessary if the FACT of women’s rights as human rights was recognized. My good man, you do not need to pander to women; we know we’re legitimate. But the change in tone was a positive step in the right direction.NOW, for example, makes no bones about the rights of women and in FACT, everyone. Access the information from NOW and you will recognize dignity and respect over pandering.We have much work to do.
We deserve better. https://www.lwv.org/newsroom/press-releases/league-refuses-help-perpetrate-fraud–LEAGUE REFUSES TO “HELP PERPETRATE A FRAUD”
