STRONG MEN

One requests forbearance for the following copy and paste.  One was unaware of a follow-up incident reported on local news that again shines light in dark Southern Tier corners.  The newest story follows the copy and paste that sets the stage for the concern from some people about a growing ‘ole boy insinuation that may be founded upon the current “strong man” ideas of governance expressed by some mediocre political hacks.  Some people view these self-defined “strong men” as the typical historical patriarchy that uses brutality, greed, and self-interest in place of statespersonship.Copy and paste—– read more

CURTAIN OF INDOCTRINATION


A Free Press is illusive in the USA in 2023.  Collaboration between business interests and government currently control a preponderance of what passes as news; and censorship seems used to silence diverse views.

CHANGE REQUIRED

Need one bring up the “p” word?  And for the group of people subscribing to membership in that club of privilege, who seem still trying to grow up, the rest of us are becoming ever less willing to wait for your metamorphosis into the adult world. read more

PEOPLE ELICIT DEMOCRACY

Gratitude to Bill Huston for reminding that the delicate topic of Home Rule has been incidental to CELDF, which offers a democracy school.  In other words, this group reminds We The People that human rights are relevant, and how best to secure them.  read more

NEWS BLACK-OUT

This summer we seem to have reached a tipping point about effects of global warming on humanity and nature that would permit denial as an obviously inane view.  And so Establishment has assumed a policy of mitigation as to the impact, rather than dealing with the underlying anomalies of lifestyle that contributed to the global warming.  This seems to be a policy that indulges big-money campaign donors who profit by the harmful policies that contribute to global warming, and is based on dependence of lawmakers on the largess of Citizens United, to their personal well being.  This leaves out attention to the needs of We The People. read more

NEWS BY DEFLECTION


Weary as one becomes of setting the record straight, but due to MSM obfuscation, one supposes one must.  So here goes—— read more

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. read more

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. read more

MAY DAY

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. read more

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. read more
