NY hasn’t as yet challenged our uniquely heavy-handed jerrymandering, or equitable inclusion of 3rd-Party candidates that currently face absurd standards for inclusion. The Republican/Democratic duopoly acts as a dictatorship in enacting laws to maintain their monopoly on elections that should never be in the hands of political Party corporations, but should be in the hands of the electorate.
A point can be made that lawfare has been perfected against the US public over decades, as laws are passed that support transfer of the wealth of the nation from the 100% to the 1%.
How do other people see us? Who is right and who is wrong?
C-Span airs at about 6:50AM a different entry into Student Cam 2023 (www.studentcam.org). The ideas are relevant and the idealism is admirable. Is it too cynical to mention that when students take on predatory educational-loan pay back, idealism may be replaced with cold reality. One hopes not.
TOUGH NUT TO CRACK
A key component in a democracy is people and our actions.
WHAT WE MUSTN’T TALK ABOUT
Is dictatorship when open reporting and citizen communication is stifled? Money isn’t Speech but can stifle Free Speech. Why aren’t more people talking about Citizens United?
NEW WORLD ORDER
Most people have heard spoken of, “the new world order”. This is consistently spoken of as to have been inculcated into the public thought process. We haven’t heard a logical and precise definition of what this will entail. This topic comes to mind due to a question that went unanswered from a C-Span caller at about 8:45AM in which a caller questioned about what “the new world order” as first mentioned by Bush (he didn’t say which Bush, but does it matter?) might be.
Is it a dictatorship, when transparency to the public is challenged and laws are enacted to benefit the elite while the majority of the public are used to that end?
Justice For All seems to be a catchy phrase unattached to FACT in the USA. It is better to be rich and guilty than poor and innocent in the justice system.
Fear more than reason may support the knee-jerk reaction of hyper funding the Pentagon in order to increase defense capabilities at the same time another recent reminder of inordinate danger looms over the public within the US borders as pertains to an obsolete and flimsy energy grid. The pentagon is purported to have misplaced about $22,000,000,000,000, that’s with a “T”.
THE PUBLIC AS ENABLERS
And the USA still denies its citizens a 1-payer comprehensive public health care system that would be less costly, more efficient, and inclusive.
REASON FOR THE SEASON
We needn’t ignore reality and then accept indoctrination.
The US public has been hearing endless descriptions of life in our nation, and the exceptional supremacy over lives of other people around the globe. In FACT, the rest of the globe is often so informed of US exceptionalism. MSM that represents the D&R duopoly are the mouthpiece for this information. But more and more we begin to hear alternative views that seem legitimate when we consider there must be more than one view. Consider a few other perspectives…
SHELL GAME TRADE
A reality-show President seems slowly to lose his polish to reality-show constituents. If the Republican Party could regain the sense of humor that is grounded in self confidence, perhaps they would elect Liz Cheney as Speaker of The House.
WHAT THEY DO, NOT WHAT THEY SAY
Does anyone believe the Establishment-imposed sanctions by elite US politicians do harm to any other than poor people? This includes the poor people of the USA as sanctions circle back onto the US public byway of high fuel prices and especially byway of, for example, the Trump tariff that was sold as an imposition upon China but is in FACT a tax on products manufactured outside of the USA and sold to the US public, when manufacturing has been outlawed in the USA by bad trade agreements inflicted by politicians at the behest of their corporate campaign donors promoted by Citizens United. The collaboration center for negotiation of such laws as have imposed inflation (price gouging) on the US public, may be found at www.alec.org.
