LAW AND MERITOCRACY
Laws seem to be the impetus for maintaining and supporting a privileged class of people that in 2023 can be called oligarchs. In a nation that pretends to equality and justice in the law, we all know it is better to be rich and guilty than poor and innocent in our justice system.
LIBERTY AND THE WILD
That women have been trained to suspect our own viability is the practice of patriarchy. For instance, the demeaning way Trump speaks about women bolsters his personal ego at the cost of female vitality. We find this attitude sometime violently so and sometime mired within religious restraint, from too many places in hierarchical Establishment. Women can fill their requisite space as intended by the Creator without defining from others.
LISTEN TO YOUR GRIFTER
Apparently grifters will say it as often as possible, hoping it will begin to sound true.
May Day is an American holiday. Who knew?
https://www.rbth.com/lifestyle/330314-may-first-in-russia –May 1 became International Labor Day after the tragedy at Haymarket Square in Chicago, Illinois, USA. In early May 1886, demonstrations were held in Chicago and other US cities demanding an eight-hour working day. It might seem a no-brainer today, but in the late 19th century many tycoons did not believe that workers had the right to sleep.
FREE PRESS, HEALTH CARE, AND BIDEN
With the Biden announcement about running for the Presidency in 2024, several thoughts come to mind.
MERGER BETWEEN STATE AND CORPORATE POWER
Definitely indicative of dictatorship. This is what “running government like a business” looks like.
COLONIZED MIND THOUGHT
Denial must be the official mindset to forget North America is colonized. The result seems to have been destruction of nature and and acceptance of Climate Change. The latest “breaking news”? Little Rock, Arkansas.
HR5 has been discussed by the R&D Duopoly. The topic is parental involvement in education of children.
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.
PROGRESS OR DYSTOPIA?
The reminder of the old film called Soylent Green arose while hearing a commercial intended to sell fruit and vegetable related nutrition vitamins using the phrase (paraphrase) –get nutrients of fruits and vegetables without expensive trips to the grocery store.
The FACT is raised in this Kim Brown discussion, about local and often volunteer firefighters who didn’t know the type of chemicals in the fire in Palestine, OH that they fought. Some Upstate NY anti-fracking advocates are quite aware of the problem of industrial insinuation of chemicals into local neighborhoods with the possible disasters that are described as “accidents will happen”, and are a part of the nationalizing of risk and privatizing of profiteering that is embedded in capitalism.
THE VALUE OF UFO’S
The value of the recent UFO concerns in the USA that has an infinitesimal chance of being aliens from outside of our universe, is the attention-grabbing ability that may accrue toward those who may otherwise be running around in red caps and annoying others. A significant value is to shine light into the dark corner of government secrecy that is out of sync with a democracy.
WE’RE ALL “THE OTHER”
The trouble with exceptionalism is a tendency to overlook excellence in “the other”
PROTECT AND SERVE
Is this about policing or the environment? You choose. Some people believe desecration of the environment is promoted within a strong police state.
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’……”
