DEFINE FREE SPEECH

Do we hand over our Constitutional rights too compliantly?  As Affirmative Action is discussed by the Supreme Court, is this seriously more important than, for example, free and functional communication among humanity?  Indoctrination lends itself to self censorship.   read more

DEFINE INDIGENOUS

Americans may have an unusual view of Indigenous people and may use the description as a noun rather than an adjective.  When we view the rest of the world in provincial thinking, are we skewed, or is everyone else? read more

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. read more

TYRANNY BY LIFESTYLE

In the ’80’s, when Trickle Down was just beginning to be inculcated by Establishment and the wonders of globalism were envisioned (how did that turn out?)  a derogatory put-down to people who were skeptical, was the label Luddite. read more

FREE PRESS IN THE BALANCE

The cash sent overseas to “save democracy” would be better used to uplift We The People.  Knowledge is power and the American people possess neither. read more

SELF DETERMINATION

A reason I love NYS is that it is a hotbed of responsible citizens.  This is curious alongside a propensity to vote into positions of power, patriarchal Establishment types who seem to disregard local community wishes.  Authoritarianism conflicts with democracy.   read more

INDIGENOUS = HUMANITY

Simplicity probably offers the most clarity and this is FACTual in language as much as in anything.  Is it a coincidence that the English-speaking world has been at the forefront of exploitation and imperialism and that the language is intricate, while less aggressive societies are known to have fewer words but perhaps with more emphasis on emotion?  Who knows, but this is an interesting topic of thought on a dreamy Fall day.  May we still be capable of dreaming. read more

CHALLENGE DENIAL

Inculcation into visions of life from hierarchical Establishment characters has supported a system that is violent, oppressive, greedy, cruel and authoritarian.  Denial is required to ignore some of these realities. read more

PATRIARCHY IS GLOBAL


Anthropomorphizing of Creation stories by politicians and bureaucrats to excuse the all-to-human failure called war, by labeling, using language of institutionalized religion, which is patriarchal, by using such words as Armageddon, in a nation founded on principals that don’t seem to support either imperialism or state religions, could be a topic of discussion. read more

VOTE FOR POLICY OR CHARACTER?

C-Span presented the following discussion and well worth hearing.  As for Liz Cheney, I hold her in high regard for integrity but in low esteem for policy.  Trickle Down has worked well for the Cheney’s, but is a corrupt economic policy as regards free markets, in one person’s opinion. Especially partnered with Citizens United and www.alec.org, it is a system to transfer the wealth of the nation from to the top of the Pyramid Scheme.  But that’s as applies to the economy and the Reagan notions.  As applies to the integrity of Liz Cheney, this seems to pertain to democracy, and is a system, if voters are awake, that can challenge Trickle Down Theories even while those supporting democracy are proponents for Trickle Down..  And so one can imagine voting for Liz Cheney as compared to, for example, voting for a Duopoly-owned President mouthing admirable policies but lacking integrity. read more

PATRIARCHAL PRIVILEGE OF VOTIING

We need to remember to look behind the curtain at the mechanics of Establishment.  This is where the control and privilege grows. read more

PERSONALITY TAKES TIME


Is the personality of the young nation of the USA still under progress?

QUESTION STATUS QUO

Some people have called for a definition of progress in terms of peace, good health, and equality rather than a progress defined in terms of aggression, exploitation and greed.  It is incomprehensible when hearing policies and actions to make work, a progress that uses finite resources in pursuit of infinite growth.  How obvious can it be that “trickle down” promotes exactly that definition of progress.  In other words, those who follow this line of propaganda are simply whistling past the graveyard. read more

CLIMATE CHANGE, HURRICANE, AND WAR

Some people see the origin of Creation less as a man with a beard and wearing a night gown, standing in the clouds, and more like cause and effect orchestrated by each individual.  A C-Span caller the other day said the hurricane was a judgment on Florida for shipping migrants to Martha’s Vineyard. read more

CLIMATE CHANGE EFFECTS

Breathtakingly simplistic and snide.   And these are our leaders. read more
