CORRUPTION BASED ON MONEY
Due to inferior education about history in the USA, overlooked and misunderstood seems the opposite relationship between “The Red Faction” and fascism. MSM upheld by commerce/state has worked over decades to cloud the FACT that in WWII Russia and the USA were allies.
Eminent Domain when corporations own politicians, take on a different meaning.
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.
BETTER LATE THAN NEVER
Judging from calls to C-Span recently, it would seem a growing number of Americans are noticing that any presumption about US democracy or freedom is instead a dictatorship by the Republican/Democratic duopoly.
THEORY OR PRACTICE?
Theories of democracy rather than practice of democracy seems the bait-and-switch of hierarchy. Hierarchy, please recall, would naturally oppose democratic practice.
LIKE PRINTING YUR OWN MONEY
This phrase is attributed to Ron Finley who (paraphrase) says growing your own food is like printing your own money.
MONEY IS NOT SPEECH
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 generally hosts public call-in sessions in which people can speak to their personal topics of interests. These are the most interesting call-in sessions, in one person’s opinion. This morning a caller at about 9:20AM, on the topic of Trans sports people in women’s sports events, suggested Trans men’s teams and Trans women’s teams as being most fair. Another type of sports event could be a blended Trans men and Trans Women teams as being appropriate, if it is presumed that it is appropriate for women’s teams to be mandated to host Trans participants.
DEFINE WAR CRIME
Is it only a war if the destruction is against foreign governments, or does it include humanity and nature as the targets?
DICTATORSHIP OR ORGANIZED CRIME?
A time existed when posing this question would have felt uncomfortable. That ship has sailed.
TOUGH NUT TO CRACK
A key component in a democracy is people and our actions.
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.
GUNS AND CITIZENS UNITED
Is Citizens United the uniting factor in the decline suspected in the USA, of meaningful values? In other words, is corruption becoming apparent.?
EVERYONE HAS A PRICE
A call-in topic his morning was asking the question of the definition of “woke”.
CAPITALISTIC USE OF THE FEMININE
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.
