Black History Month includes the validity of a realistic trip down memory lane.
C-Span chose as their topic of call-in this morning, whether the abortion issue will influence your vote. This deflection is typical of MSM that is intent on promoting the Democratic/Republican duopoly.
The C-Span discussion about the Korean War was ushered in with an apparently government-inspired movie staging the pro-US perspective of our participation. The movie itself was a delightful reminder of one’s childhood in Upstate NY, where during so many auditorium-movie displays, students were mandated to watch hours of pro-capitalistic views that effectively indoctrinated into capitalism as democracy.
In capitalistic hierarchical Establishment, the idea of utopia is dismissed as unattainable, regardless of the qualification of the American people as “exceptional”. And so policies are in place that actualize profits for the wealthy and pain for everyone else. This is indeed governmental/business policy, and nothing more. It is not accepted around the world. If not Utopia, how about a fair shake. Consider Europe.
We might consider, while contemplating increasing poor mental health in the USA of individuals, the inane state of capitalistic hierarchical Establishment aggression and violence in its varied forms.
HR5 has been discussed by the R&D Duopoly. The topic is parental involvement in education of children.
Apparently this is the 20th anniversary of the “War in Iraq”. Many callers to C-Span expressed belated regrets for this anomaly of a military action by the USA. Better late than never. Many people were vehement in condemnation of this ill-fated military self-indulgence in the time and place. We also remember the media frenzy over “freedom fries” and “supporting our President”. Too bad our Presidents don’t support We The People.
Some people have had a front-row seat from the peanut gallery to the financial inanity in the USA over decades. Here’s a scenario
A remembrance of Pat Schroeder on CBS Nightly report yesterday mentioned that she was appointed to a Commission but needed to share the seat with a male associate due to her status as 1/2 a person in that time and place. Some women remember those days. We may return to them. Meanwhile too often it feels like the women who endured those places and times are expected to “just get over it”. And so a road to a return to that time is paved.
Have you heard the USSR Brezhnev joke ….From the book The Gates of Europe…..”But the Soviet economy was in no condition to accelerate anything other than rates of decline…….” ‘We were on the edge of an abyss………but since then we have made a huge step forward’……”
We need to remember reality, especially on the meaning of capital. Here are a few topics toward that end.
On involvement in Ukraine, US leaders have warned the US public that pain could be felt at home. How is this supportive of the USA and We The People?…..And to what end?–
An important and ignored topic is the negligence from elected officials and bureaucrats toward the local community members in the USA. Some politicians seem to cater to the whims of big-money interests using the deflection of the importance of the economy. The so-called economy envisioned by these bureaucrats and elected officials seem to be limited to the transfer of the wealth of the nation from the 100% to the 1%.
