IT’S THE DUOPOLY, STUPID….

What do MAGA voters and the Democratic Base have in common?  Some people could guess, the commonality is being hoodwinked by separate branches of the Republican/Democratic Duopoly. read more

WHY IS LIFE EXPECTANCY DROPPING?

In a nation where the life expectancy continues to drop and water is unavailable to growing numbers of people, we might question funding of foreign wars that seems beneficial to American oligarchs but at the cost of US citizens. read more

PREDATORY INFLATION


The story of several oligarchs pulling strings behind the scenes obscures the more relevant story of institutionalized hierarchical process that feels too similar to a Pyramid Scheme economy.  Fascism may more nearly be the correct definition since the system is held in place less by persuasion and more by laws. read more

DILEMMA

Liz Cheney has acted as a supporter of democracy to an extent that caused personal harm to her, and she is anti-Choice and possibly pro-capitalist.  This seems to imply that a politician who is probably pro-capitalist, has valued democracy over hierarchical privilege. read more

IS INFLATION THE EUPHEMISM FOR GOUGING?


Some people call it gouging while some people call it inflation.  Hoodwinked is the result. read more

WHITE SUPREMACY IS A STATE OF MIND

C-Span hosted discussions from the general public that are more pertinent to reality than most of anything heard from our so-called leaders.   read more

BAIT AND SWITCH IN POLITICS

The good news about the state of governance in the USA is that more of the electorate is beginning to pay attention and question those who are in power. read more

WOMEN AS BAIT

“Made a deal with the devil”?   It’s like we’ve identified the devil.  Some people were excoriated in the 2020 Presidential election when they didn’t “hold your nose and vote”.  Can we hear from the Democratic-base voices?  The campaign-strategy accusations of racism seem curiously close to home. read more

RELIGION AND POLITICS

One wonders if it is supposed to be impolite, discussion about politics or religion, the better for hierarchical Establishment to use both to control We The People.  Perhaps this also keeps the public in the dark about ideas other than those in each particular cubicle of thinking. read more

THE GOOD GUYS

One takes a wild guess here that the shooter was male; and armed for specifically said occurrence when a “good guy with a gun” was needed.  Domestic violence targets will attest to the benignity of such characters until they’re not.   read more

DEFINE DOUBLE TALK

It’s like they think we can’t see them. read more

CODED FOR POLITICS


Anyone who has been a consumer for 50 years or more is aware of the reality of planned obsolescence.  We surely have a throw-away society with consumers indoctrinated into expectations of products that are cheap, superficial, often useless, and manufactured for short-term use in order to encourage repurchase on an ongoing treadmill.  Our landfills are testimonies to progress based on greed, exploitation and privilege rather than progress based on good health, equality, and peace.   read more

IS ECONOMY EUPHEMISM FOR DICTATORSHIP?

If people were living in a dictatorship, could control best be wielded over said people by using euphemism rather than direct challenge of control due to dictatorship? For example, if hierarchy stated boldly that the system of government precisely was in place to protect and promote interests of said hierarchy, said people could become restless.  But if an idea was imposed in place of the concept of a system in place to protect and promote hierarchy, was used in place of direct language, people could become compliant.  What if the euphemism used was “the economy”?  Is this notion worthy of discussion? read more

PEACE AND LIBERTY

What is the message that is sent either accidentally or intentionally sent by John Lennon as he mimics the stance of our Lady Liberty?  Can we manifest both liberty and peace? read more

LEAD BY EXAMPLE

Remembering that the Haudenosaunee are said to be the origin of principles included in the US Constitution that don’t appear to rest on a foundation of capitalism but rather on a foundation of free enterprise as pertains to but are not limited to financial matters, hope continues that culture as lived pre-colonization can triumph.  Time will tell.  Meanwhile, Upstate NY is benefiting, so far, from said leadership.  The hope builds that we remember nature and the wilderness. read more
