NATURAL CAPITAL

We need to remember reality, especially on the meaning of capital.  Here are a few topics toward that end. read more

ENTITLEMENT vs EARNED BENEFIT

How many workers wonder when their Social Security Earned Benefit for which they pay, turned into a media-defined Social Security Entitlement.  Actually the transformation was over a much shorter time frame than was, for example, the transfer of the wealth of the nation from the 100% to the 1%. read more

DE-GROWTH AND REALITY

Unless we can speak FACTually rather than according to Establishment talking points, reality will allude us. read more

GENERATORS OR STADIUMS?

An important and ignored topic is the negligence from elected officials and bureaucrats toward the local community members in the USA.  Some politicians seem to cater to the whims of big-money interests using the deflection of the importance of the economy.  The so-called economy envisioned by these bureaucrats and elected officials seem to be limited to the transfer of the wealth of the nation from the 100% to the 1%. read more

DEMOCRATIZING THE ECONOMY


As long as we’re going to fixate on the economy rather than principles of our democratic Constitutional republic, we could start by democratizing the economy. read more

PRIORITIZE HEALTH

The US government seems more involved in policing the globe than protecting the US public.  Lack of a 1-payer universal health care policy is an example, at the same time the Pentagon is absorbing the wealth of the nation with no accountability and in FACT with disturbing evidence of having misplaced $22,000,000,000,000 (with a T) of taxpayer money.  C-Span hosted a discussion in which a caller questioned the reason for foreign aid to Israel, that is a wealthy nation.  Where is that money going and to what end?  Why is a wealthy foreign nation prioritized over a US public that is in need? read more

RECOGNIZE SUPPRESSION

When the Republican branch of the duopoly are in power they investigate the Democratic branch of the duopoly and vice versa.  This is an excellent bi-partisan deflection that keeps in power our 2-Party system and the oligarchy behind it.    Meanwhile local-community members around the globe and including the USA are warned we “must sacrifice” read more

What else can we do other than destroy nature and people? read more

THE WORLD ACCORDING TO ENTRENCHED INTERESTS


Climate Change and exploitation is probably due to a lack of imagination by Americans along with a troubling propensity to rally to the support of entrenched interests.   read more

LOOK BEHIND THE CURTAIN

One is under informed about the details of the following story about Brazil to analyze the contents.  But where one finds symptoms it is logical to look for a disease.  We know democracy is diminishing at an alarming rate around the globe ad most markedly in the supposed bastion of democracy called the USA.  Hierarchy are gaining wealth at the expense of the majority of humanity and this is explained by “running government like a business”.   Climate Change is too obvious to be denied by any other than the most dedicated environmental exploiters.  Climate Change is a price paid by Earth and humanity to promote hierarchical Establishment financial interests. read more

THE TRANSFER OF WEALTH TO THE WEALTHY IS GOING WELL

To simply understand 2 separate Trump bureaucratic policy enactments may raise questions.  “Tax cuts” are the rallying cry of Conservatives, and some of the electorate who may be non-wealthy seem to imagine they are included in said tax cuts, when FACTually only the wealthy and most often commercial interests may be the beneficiaries.  This seems to be the case in the Trump tax cut of January 2018.  Coincidentally also enacted was what seems to be a tax increase on mostly low-income Americans in the Trump tariff enactment. read more

DEFINE DOUBLE TALK

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

COOPERATION AND COMPETITION

How workable is it to have both cooperation and competition?  This feels like the message inherent in current Establishment rhetoric that is embedded within capitalistic hierarchy.  The oxymoron of urging competition and cooperation provides space for authority to lightly skip from one message to another in a way that confuses and controls.  Competition is the message to explain free market principles within capitalism which itself is an oxymoron, proven by run-away inflation.  Cooperation is the message of required patience by the public as hierarchy sends our manufacturing and good-paying jobs overseas for maximized profiteering.   read more

EARTH DAY PREP

A special celebration of our home occurs on April 22; but who doesn’t love their home each day? read more

DEFINE NATIONAL SECURITY

Mitch McConnell graced us with his view about expanded funding for The Military-Industrial Complex to enhance national security.  The view from Mitch McConnell is predictable when one considers reports of his familial connections to commercial interests in China.  National security for American oligarchs is often imagined in terms of “protecting American interests overseas” which is commercial interest in foreign nations.   read more
