Washington Journal customarily hosts excellent call-in opportunities, but monopolized toward interests of the capitalistic hierarchical Establishment. This is a disservice to the electorate.
Due to one’s ignorance on many topics of law, one finds it helpful to research the topic of interest.
One requests forbearance for the following copy and paste. One was unaware of a follow-up incident reported on local news that again shines light in dark Southern Tier corners. The newest story follows the copy and paste that sets the stage for the concern from some people about a growing ‘ole boy insinuation that may be founded upon the current “strong man” ideas of governance expressed by some mediocre political hacks. Some people view these self-defined “strong men” as the typical historical patriarchy that uses brutality, greed, and self-interest in place of statespersonship.Copy and paste—–
C-Span hosted a call-in discussion today asking the US taxpayer whether their taxes justified the services received. Most people expressed the FACT that low-income earners carried the bulk of the burden while politicians use funding to buoy the fortunes of American and foreign oligarchs (my interpretation). This is surely an outcome of the illegitimate Supreme Court decision called Citizens United that legalized corruption in our electoral process that has enriched so-called lawmakers, (most unduly and corruptly influenced by foreign–money and big-money interest lobbyists and PAC’s to pass oligarch-friendly laws), while practicing dereliction of duty toward We The People (my interpretation).
Isn’t it the duty of our lawmakers to criticize US involvement in the wars of foreign nation, and our own, especially when genocide seems to be the goal of said war?–
C-Span opened their phones for so many excellent views that to choose just a few would be impossible. One is heartened that so many Americans have awakened to the corruption in our government as we have meandered down the path of “running government like a business”. This on a continuum is organized crime.
This morning C-Span hosted a discussion about the Israeli/Hamas fiasco. An ocean liner seems to have turned as so many callers spoke of the distinction between Hamas and Palestinian communities, and the context preceding the weekend attack which included the destruction of Palestinian homes and crops by Israel.
It;s been quite a while since autoworkers were laid off, factories in the US closed, jobs shipped overseas, and the beginning of incredible profits by the auto industry and fabulous payout to CEO’s. Workers remaining took drastic pay cuts, lost benefits, and were denied a defined benefit retirement plan.
A change is in the wind in MSM as it catches the tail end of awakening to governance in the USA that seems intent on destroying democracy.
We spend too much time worrying about the curtain rather than the wizard.
Corporate-privilege laws aren’t a gift from God. They are indicative of governing corruption.
A Free Press is illusive in the USA in 2023. Collaboration between business interests and government currently control a preponderance of what passes as news; and censorship seems used to silence diverse views.
This summer we seem to have reached a tipping point about effects of global warming on humanity and nature that would permit denial as an obviously inane view. And so Establishment has assumed a policy of mitigation as to the impact, rather than dealing with the underlying anomalies of lifestyle that contributed to the global warming. This seems to be a policy that indulges big-money campaign donors who profit by the harmful policies that contribute to global warming, and is based on dependence of lawmakers on the largess of Citizens United, to their personal well being. This leaves out attention to the needs of We The People.
Some in hierarchical Establishment recognize a need to indoctrinate the public that pagan lifestyle is undesirable. The concept of individual autonomy doesn’t comport comfortably with hierarchy.
