Change Takes Time
Quality isn’t a flash-in-the-pan. Particularly when We The People have been sufficiently preoccupied attempting to survive as we vote into positions of public office, sycophants to big-money interests both of which know the price of everything and the value of nothing. Anyone with the perspective of perhaps 60 or 70 years of life, will laugh at themselves say 50 years ago. —-https://www.organicconsumers.org/bytes/war-life?utm_medium=email&utm_source=engagingnetworks&utm_campaign=OB+676&utm_content=OB+676–With the passing last week of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, we were reminded of the many issues she stood for and fought for, and of some of her words of wisdom.
This one often-cited quote attributed to Ginsburg hits close to home for those of us trying to reform food and farming policy:“Real change, enduring change, happens one step at a time.”–end of organicconsumers info–
That change takes time doesn’t mean action shouldn’t be taken immediately, but it does mean results worthy of such action are worth the commitment of patience..
Of an age to enjoy perspective, the work of environmentalists is for the future, not for ourselves—-https://www.desmogblog.com/2020/09/18/court-youth-climate-lawsuit-washington-inslee-fires?utm_source=DeSmog%20Weekly%20Newsletter–As rampant wildfires worsened by climate change continued to batter the western U.S. this week, a Washington state appeals court examined the question of whether young people should be allowed to sue their state government over the climate crisis. The hearing, held Thursday, September 17, is part of a case brought by 13 Washington youth against the Evergreen State.That case, Aji P. et al. v. State of Washington, argues that the government is violating the youths’ fundamental rights under the state constitution through policies that perpetuate fossil fuels and fail to reduce carbon emissions rapidly enough to avoid catastrophic climate consequences. At a time when the state is literally on fire and climate calamity impossible to ignore, the court appeared skeptical of the state’s argument that the political branches of government are doing enough to address the crisis and that climate change doesn’t undermine fundamental rights protected by the constitution.–end of desmogblog info———————————————-Meet the protectors of our tomorrows—https://www.ourchildrenstrust.org/meet-the-washington-youth-plaintiffs
The capitalism in the Democratic/Republican duopoly have in recent Presidential Administrations, strengthened the violations of human, civil and environmental rights toward local community members as both branches of this big-money-interest-connected corporate political Party codify such violations within trade agreements—-https://www.desmogblog.com/2020/09/23/agribusiness-lobby-groups-us-uk-post-brexit-trade-deal-climate-denial?utm_source=DeSmog%20Weekly%20Newsletter–The ongoing US-UK trade talks have been seen by some lobby groups as an opportunity to strip back environmental and food safety regulations to allow them to sell products – pesticides, hormone-fed meat, genetically modified crops (GMOs), and chemicals – that have been previously banned under EU law. The groups represent industries worth billions of dollars, and are supported by some of the world’s largest polluters. ALEC has since 2004 been a member of Cooler Heads Coalition (CHC), an informal group of climate science denial organisations, and is a member of the Atlas Network of free-market organisations. ALEC has received at least $1,880,700 in grants from ExxonMobil since 1997, according to the Climate Investigations Centre and $3,241,620 from Koch foundations between 1997-2017, according to Greenpeace. It also has a long history of climate science denial which led to an exodus of high-profile members in recent years. –end of desmogblog info–
Obama was a staunch defender and promoter of TPP, that included language that undermined civil, environmental, and human rights of local US communities, in order to comply with multi-national corporations. When people concerned for the environment and worried about Climate Change, challenged the leadership of Obama, the political corporate strategists have accused as racist, such protests. This is a dismally cynical abuse of corporate political propaganda, and absurdly off-base.

Everything that comes out of my mouth is going to be filtered through the lens of you despising my existence. That’s the metaphorical adding-of-fire

Mandates to be silent are used toward environmentalists by corporate political Party strategists. The voice of duopoly political strategists are not worthy to be matched against those speaking truth to power.

BIDEN Blasts BERNIE in Attempt To Get VOTES!
In order to avoid confusion, Bernie Sanders wants everyone to vote for Joe Biden.
Bernie Sanders is also the same person with the backbone to continue on his typically serious messages—-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hNJHiQ7-xQ—-Bernie Sanders says Trump threatens to undermine American democracy
We may take a step toward democracy when censorship of 3rd-Party candidates stops, and 3rd-Party candidates are permitted a voice in debates.
With all respect for Bernie Sanders, one no longer wishes to “hold one’s nose and vote”; democracy is preferred.
In 2016, 40% of registered voters stayed home. If Democratic voters voted for Biden and Republican voters voted for Trump, and the 40% of voters who have had enough of corruption voted for the Green Party Presidential candidate Howie Hawkins, Hawkins will be our next President of the USA.
Voters will not be required to vote against their conscience, as is required by the Republican/Democratic duopoly.
From another middle child and child of the ’60’s, Happy Birthday to Ann Wilson. Music was indeed a type of religion for many people of the time.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7htRait9hM–Happy Birthday, Ann Wilson: A Tribute to the Queen of Rock
To set a stage for future generations to enjoy the possibilities of our democratic (small d) Constitutional republic as surely as was the case for children of the ’60’s (not to suggest it was an easy time), to move past the tethers mandated by capitalistic hierarchical Establishment, we need clean, fair, and free elections that We The People do not have in 2020.

Demand inclusion in debates of 3rd-Party Presidential candidates such as Howie Hawkins of the Green Party, in order to understand the difference between value and price. You will hear a politician running for public office who has a strong grasp on reality, and policies that are in keeping with requirements of We The People, in Howie Hawkins—
A vote for Green Party Presidential candidate Howie Hawkins is to ensure that you honor your own voice—-https://www.c-span.org/video/?473680-3/washington-journal-howie-hawkins-discusses-green-party-platform—

And many of the most non-Establishment voters are in the Green Party.
**************************************As a Green Party registered voter routinely, one re-registers every 4 years into the Democratic Party to be able to cast a vote in the Democratic Primary for Bernie Sanders. One is positive one is not alone in doing so.Lost in the fog of political corruption over several decades, is the fact that the Presidential debates were once in the capable hands of the League of Women Voters—-https://www.lwv.org/newsroom/press-releases/league-refuses-help-perpetrate-fraud—-Most objectionable to the League, Neuman said, were conditions in the agreement that gave the campaigns unprecedented control over the proceedings. Neuman called “outrageous” the campaigns’ demands that they control the selection of questioners, the composition of the audience, hall access for the press and other issues.”The campaigns’ agreement is a closed-door masterpiece,” Neuman said. “Never in the history of the League of Women Voters have two candidates’ organizations come to us with such stringent, unyielding and self-serving demands.”Neuman said she and the League regretted that the American people have had no real opportunities to judge the presidential nominees outside of campaign-controlled environments.—-end of lwv info—In other words, (paraphrase) patriarchy says, “we’ll handle it from here, little ladies”—https://straty.com/controlling-outcomes-controlling-table-stakes/—After studying the election process in 1985, the bipartisan National Commission on Elections recommended “turning over the sponsorship of Presidential debates to the two major parties”. The CPD was established in 1987 by the chairmen of the Democratic and Republican Parties to “take control of the Presidential debates”. The commission was staffed by members from the two parties and chaired by the heads of the Democratic and Republican parties… (wikipedia)
—end of straty info—https://www.debates.org/—The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) was established in 1987 to ensure, for the benefit of the American electorate, that general election debates between or among the leading candidates for the offices of President and Vice President of the United States are a permanent part of the electoral process. CPD’s primary purpose is to sponsor and produce the quadrennial general election debates and to undertake research and educational activities relating to the debates. The organization, which is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, 501(c)(3) corporation, sponsored all of the presidential debates in 1988, 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012, and 2016
—end of debates info—The Commission on Presidential Debates, replacing the League of Women Voters, controls who can debate and on which topics. They call this educating the public, others may see this as brainwashing. The CPD would profit by hearing from We The People, as to concerns about censorship. The censorship seems to have become so blatant, that petitions to the CPD have reached into the hundreds of thousands.

Brown* Deceased© COPYRIGHT 2020 THE COMMI—end of debates so-called leadership—-This also filters out any other than Democratic Establishment and Republican Establishment views. This means We The People have nothing to say in our own governance.Consider the large number of voters who do not embrace the policies of either of the Democratic Establishment or Republican Establishment, and the fact that the Democratic Establishment and Republican Establishment have swindled the American electorate out of unbiased information directly from possible Presidential choices; often outside of the Capitalist Party D&R. Since these disgusting events in the ’80’s, state-run/corporate-owned MSM has consistently indoctrinated We The People into accepting the falsehood that “we are a 2-Party system”. This has had the effect of rending illegitimate, the deeply legitimate tradition of free, clean, and fair elections.
In other words, politicians are now choosing their voters, rather than voters choosing their politicians.
Acting on the human frailty of ignorance combined with arrogance, and using as an example the Democratic Establishment, one recognizes what is called a Democratic Base that believes in their right to dictate to others, their voting choices. —–https://www.haudenosauneeconfederacy.com/influence-on-democracy/https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2pIDtvTydkU&t=638s
