To logically criticize obviously questionable FACTS will bring charges of being “anti” something or other. This seems to be a way to censor that which should and often isn’t discussed in public.
One who remembers the rage after the 9/11 attack in NYC reportedly implicating the Saudi Arabian oligarchs, understands the rage of Israeli citizens who just last week protested the corruption in their own government. This includes an Israel thate seems intent on eradicating Palestinian lifestyle choice of farming and local-community business in favor of “work permits” in Israel.
Too soon to get worn down, boys and girls. Nature is our ally, and we are hers’.
The best explanation of passive/aggressive behavior I’ve seen is the following——It’s a large dog with his front paws on your shoulders, licking your face, and peeing on your shoes.
C-Span hosted conversations about Memorial Day.
8:40AM–caller–paraphrase–The military is good at transitioning citizens into soldiers but not the transition from a soldier into a citizen.
American foreign policy seems to have devolved into military promotion and action. This is in compliance to benefits for The Military-Industrial Complex. The Military-Industrial Complex is the engine for world-wide oligarchy. Military action has replaced declared war, giving unspecified bureaucrats and politicians ability to wage war according to personal whim (The Bush/Cheney “War in Iraq” is an example), and relieves Congress of its responsibilities the better to pretend to outrage and innocence. Our bureaucratically-labeled “Proxy War with Russia in Ukraine” is an insult to intelligence.
One is grateful for reminders of the reality of the era of the ’70’s that can be characterized by involvement in social issues by young people. The issues eventually were captured into political camps for campaign purposes, as subtly as the young people were strained off to the service of those who could be suspected as being the perpetrators of the problems in he first place. Earth Day seems a great time to consider the underlying malevolence beneath the entirety.
C-Span is illuminating as usual. A caller spoke of the wealth of military equipment the USA has left around the globe, free for the taking by others. She implied this is a bad idea.
The point is made that the US leadership might have served the US better by understanding Afghanistan, now that the Taliban is back in control……as though they ever weren’t. The Frontline guest Martin Smith was a guest on C-Span, and also intimated that Afghanistan may not be the only misunderstood nation into which deluded US leaders are forcing “Western values”. And so goes American chauvinism.
Some people see value in each of patriarchy and matriarchy when they are in balance and cooperative. Currently and over many centuries, the globe has experienced wildly out-of-balance patriarchy. We can envision better. —
American chauvinism that chooses to define the world according to US views seems self-indulgence.
C-Span hosted CSIS Keith Jones this morning on the topic of a diminishing military capability for the USA. An inability to find this on C-Span, the name may be wrong, but one believes it is correct. The CSIS rep discussed military readiness of the USA. He shared that our military equipment is depleted. He went on to worry on air that the Abrams tanks wouldn’t be available to Ukraine immediately, that will be sent by the USA. And then he said that the time frame by which Ukraine would receive the Abrams tanks may
Some people recognize Trump for the deflection that has been his use by the Democratic/Republican duopoly. Meanwhile the real issues that impact the lives of the public go unaddressed.
When the Republican branch of the duopoly are in power they investigate the Democratic branch of the duopoly and vice versa. This is an excellent bi-partisan deflection that keeps in power our 2-Party system and the oligarchy behind it. Meanwhile local-community members around the globe and including the USA are warned we “must sacrifice”
At least questions are being raised. Some of the public are noticing that something fishy is going on.
