Worshipping growth is not sustainable, and nothing will change until attitudes change. All true. Generally a good, informative read, especially the following synopsis which seems to support the graph and how we feel:
What happens, in brief, is that the costs of growth rise faster than the benefits, until finally they overwhelm growth itself and…

from an illusory past like Fascism’s references to former failed states. Nor can we survive under an ideology of an idealized future, a picture that socialism sometimes paints. Fascism eventually kills everyone because nothing it worships actually lives. Among fascists, (and wall-street worshippers) they actually fear and hate each other, but…[Read more]

A. DNC wouldn’t let her speak at the convention.
B. DNC wouldn’t listen to her platform.
C. DNC ran candidates against her candidates.
D. DNC doesn’t want her voters (or Bernie’s) to bust their bubble or money stream.
This is all just a foil. Bernie sounds like he has given up on Joe already, and prepping for an AOC takeover of the Democratic…[Read more]

Competing for seats? Listen to the will of the voters? Coalitions with fellow members who disagree with my tribe?
That sounds too much like work.

In addition to the Ebola vaccine being buried (despite public funded research), there are also a few nuggets giving lie to the corporate myth of ‘freeing’ innovation:

Nearly every word from the mouths of most politicians.
It was focused upon one child who’s attitude is everything because that child can command his thoughts through bold actions.
Bigotry, prejudism, and other disgusting biases of hatred are entrenched social diseases. No word or symbol is going to change those people. The American militia adopted the Yankee Doodle Dandee label empowering them to…[Read more]

“Within just a few generations, the continents of the Americas were virtually emptied of their native inhabitants – some academics estimate that approximately 20 million people may have died in the years following the European invasion – up to 95% of the population of the Americas.”

Unless he is self promoting.
The COVID-19 seems to be smart enough to know that Trump is it’s best agent for proliferating, so it wants Trump to keep doing what he is doing. With over a million US cases and counting, the virus could not ask for a more effective President.
“Make America’s Grave Again” seems to be its motto.

It explains so much. The question is, who would they ever trust to change their lives for the better? How can we get to that point? I know their experience has brought negative results, but this will ensure that it stays that way!

to pad the pocket of his puppeteers, claiming that the Democrats are holding up Federal support for the ‘American people’. Apparently his definition of the American people is limited to the 1%. The rest of us need to pull ourselves up by our bootstraps. Whatever that means.
Things have changed dramatically in the past week. I’m sure a lot of those who have voted for Biden realize now that he does not support Medical for all. They were not paying close enough attention. They now know that Bernie is the only answer for our problems. Bernie is the best direction for the US.

As the most trusted politician, Bernie is the only leader putting his concern for the American people first. Other politicians can only see citizens as consumers and economic chattel. Congress placing banking needs 1st tells you all you need to know about their obliviousness to what is coming.

around his definition of Democratic Socialism except for his referrals to Scandinavian governments that benefit from general cultural uniformity.

Among Bernie’s achievements was to have gathered such a wide swath of cultures into a powerful movement, unlike any government in Scandanavia.…[Read more]

But Uncle Joe last night said that this wasn’t true! Then he selected the worst case scenario (Italy) to prove we don’t need M4A. He prefers to always remain in crisis mode, like the Republican Congress. Yeah. It will cost more, and more people will die, but it works so well as a sound bite. Plus, it’s easy to understand how to act in a crisis. I…[Read more]
