DON’T POKE MAMA BEAR
MSM have divided into right wing and left wing, presentations that have captured and isolated large portions of the public. This coincides with the same surgical separation by the 2 branches of the Democratic/Republican duopoly that would most properly identify as the American Capitalist Party. And then MSM refers to each group in language that refers to strange identification with sports teams that are nothing short of embarrassing. And so indoctrination is inflicted painlessly. In contrast, in the Former USSR, violence was used….how barbaric. It’s good to be exceptional, but possibly not quite as awakened.
C-Span hosted relevant discussions about matters that effect the majoirty of the public today.
9:10AM–caller–paraphrase–As one who worked in the hospital industry processing pharmaceutical bills for cardiac patients, the difference for Medicare patients of cost for (Zarelto and eloquis) drugs was about $400 to $500 per month as compared to Medicaid patients with costs of $3.00 or $0 per month revealed exploitation of older people (paraphrase).
Prejudice and bigotry toward older Americans was especially broadcast for one self-expounding state-run-corporate-owned MSM broadcaster, first with the NYTimes, then on MSNBC, and now on NPR, as she continually spread the lie that Medicaid and Medicare were exactly the same except on was for young people and the other for old people. And she would add that being old itself is a health risk, as though obesity isn’t. A few thoughts–*Medicare is a system of health care into which workers paid into over 30, 40, and 50 years, and the premium for old people currently is about $1,740 annually and increases each year*Medicaid does not require these preliminary and ongoing contributions in order to be covered*Co-pays and deductibles apply under Medicare but don’t under Medicaid
One is disturbed by the obvious ageism that appear acceptable, not to mention the outright lies broadcast on MSM. One also wonders at the level of ignorance of such broadcasters on a topic to which they speak.
Meanwhile many of the elders so demeaned continue to pay property taxes to fund school systems that are graduating such ignorance into the public.
One has long questioned a public educational system that trains students into capitalistic hierarchy including ignorance about price gouging, monopolies, fraud, and corruption which appear ignored by a highly questionable graduates of institutions of higher learning.
This leads to another C-Span discussion this morning about parents and the system of education in the USA. Some people believe students would be well-served if educated about honesty, analytical reasoning, autonomy, and equality. Instead the common-core style of education indoctrinates into capitalism that is predatory and hierarchical.

Christa Case Bryant Discusses Parents & Politics
Christa Case Bryant from The Christian Science Monitor discusses her recent piece about how the political parties are vying to be “the party of parents.”–end of c-span info–
9:15AM–paraphrase–guest–On the topic of McAuliffe about “interference” by parents into their children’s education, “don’t poke Mama Bear”. Education has for too long been cordoned off to parents, while capitalistic hierarchical Establishment indoctrinate children into compliance as consumers rather than autonomy as citizens. Democrats presume to care about equality but seem to play good cop to the bad cop of Republicans, both of which Parties are owned by big-money interests via Citizens United.
One’s concern about the common-core educational system is decidedly about ignoring abuse of humanity for profit, and specifically one can mention slavery which is the ultimate in exploitation of environment and people as natural resources and human resources. Having urged for years, recognition of this educational anomaly, one wonders at the reason parents haven’t spoken out sooner.
One imagines the condescending warning from hierarchy to “leave it to the experts” is one reason. Another reason is the exploitation of the American family by capitalistic hierarchy. Families are simply so put upon, mandated, overworked and worn out, as to be silly.
When we speak of public institutions, we are speaking of service over profiteering. Advertising and indoctrination have skewed this reality into seeing greed as being good–https://popularresistance.org/public-private-partnerships-are-quietly-hollowing-out-our-public-libraries/ –Many are capitalist groupies who see unionized employees working for the government as leeches. This anti-worker sentiment within the administrative ranks of many public libraries has made it easier for one of the most nefarious grifts in the U.S. economic system to take hold: the public-private partnership, a Reagan-era arrangement in which private industry “partners” with the public sector, claiming to be able to deliver more for less in service to the public.Just the name makes me sick — the slick, corporate double-speak of it and the way partnership implies that these arrangements aren’t an insidious attack on public institutions. Perhaps the most nauseating of these assaults on the commons is one that has been silently infiltrating one of our most cherished public spaces: public libraries.Library Systems and Services (LS&S) is a for-profit, private company that has been quietly infiltrating public libraries since 1997 when it successfully negotiated a contract to privatize the county library system in Riverside County, California. In the ‘90s and through the first decade of the 2000s, LS&S operated using a business model that will be familiar to anyone who follows local government issues in the U.S.: a private company descends on a municipal or county government that is in financially poor shape, and offers to take over (or “outsource”) management of a public service, like a library, for a fraction of the cost. This business model changed slightly, and alarmingly, about a decade ago.–end of popularresistance info–We’re selling away dignity and freedom.
What is one to make of the double talk as suggested below?What they do not what they say. Double talk is apparent at COP26—That COP26 is a patriarchal presumption that seems associated with an idea that exploitation of the environment as a natural resource for profiteering particularly includes The Military Industrial Complex as a prime beneficiary and motivator. The voices of people who prefer peace would be more helpful at COP26 than would be the voices of Establishment hierarchy, if saving the planet is the reason –https://popularresistance.org/us-peace-prize-awarded-to-world-beyond-war/ –The 2021 US Peace Prize has been awarded to World BEYOND War “for exceptional global advocacy and creative peace education to end war and dismantle the war machine.”Michael Knox, Chair of the US Peace Memorial Foundation, thanked World BEYOND War and its members “for years of outstanding and prolific antiwar actions and extensive peace educational projects involving many people and organizations. We appreciate your leadership and the significant impact your members and programs have had throughout the world.”–end of popularresistance info–
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—–end of curiously contradictory styles of double talk from Establishment——-
