Stock market down as China moves down?!: Washington$ doesn't have much incentive to act with Economic Patriotism.
Think about it. The 10%’rs who own 85% of the value of what is traded on the financial markets also owns our Washington politicians and dictate their behavior by giving them cash.
This blog will be my space to discuss the decline of America's media with a focus on cable and network news. Anyone who happens across this is welcome to comment and re-post with credit given. I love to engage with others who are saddened or angered by what's become of our daily & nightly newscasts.
If Black Lives Matter Was Truly A-Political And All About Parity and Justice, One Teensy Little Word Would've Done The Trick ---BLM "TOO"
I fear BLM is an Astro-Turf organization, much like what became of the aTea-Party movement. This has become a bogus political tool, almost right from the gates. Shame that they'd throw their fellow black Americans under the bus for personal engrandizement and enrichment. Bigger shame on the handlers who've corrupted and prostituted some sincere but unsophisticated young people for their own political purposes. But that's USA under Citizens United. Thanks, SCOTUS.
It might be caused by frustration, of course, but the point is - hysteria expresses itself through human behavior depending of what hormones are available. Uncontrollable crying fits happen in estrogen -rich bodies, while testosterone causes the same hysteria to express itself in uncontrollable aggression fits. And, of course, we have all seen infantile type hysteria expression in juvenile tantrums.
I still cannot agree with Bernie Sanders defining himself as "socialist" or "democratic socialist". Both definitions a/ not accurate (after all, Socialism, by definition, is government MONOPOLY, which Bernie opposes) and b/ tainted by negative connotations (too many dictators fancied themselves as "socialists”).
When I'm explaining Bernie's platform to my Republican and Conservative friends (and even to one Monarchist among them) , I use the description which certainly catches their attention and opens their minds:
So it's election time in Canada, unlike the US , we have tough restrictions on election spending by the candidates and our election period is 16 weeks.
Up for re election is Stephen Harper of Canada's Conservative Party. The question ALL Canadians are asking themselves , has he shown himself competent and trustworthy and the flat answer is NO. First these Conservatives have had 9 straight budget deficts, adding hundreds of millions of new debt to the backs of 35 million Canadians. Secondly they are as crooked as they come.
...that this unfortunate condition impairs human judgement to the extent of acting irrationally, against their own interests if there's a slightest chance of causing damage to the demonized group. It happens over and over again and still history teaches humanity nothing, we still cannot resist assisting our sworn enemies who openly proclaim our destruction as their primary objective - just because we hope those cannibals will destroy our allies first. Just think about how such despicable policy is going to damage US reputation as a trustworthy ally among world community.
Custodianship of the Commons: Pentagon intervenes in wildfires only when insurance companies are recording claims.
Obama’s\Demo-rats grade on stewardship and custodianship of the Peoples’ commons, including public forests, is one Big MASSIVE “F” as in complete failure.
Wildfires = 1) punctuated release of C02 and fine particulate matter into the atmosphere, and 2) a big boost in the Obama’s Mass Extinction, and 3) a massive taking of public property as a consequence of special interests.
Recently I have been reading Julia Serano's excellent book "Whipping Girl, A Transsexual Woman on Sexism and the Scapegoating of Femininity." In the book she referenced Gore Vidal's famous character Myra Breckinridge from the book of the same name.
Love is Progressive Part 47: Imperfect People, Perfect Love
It is an axiom that nobody is perfect. We all muddle through life with our imperfections, foibles and faults, some better than others. Both our imperfections and our differences contribute to the difficulty of relationships, whether they be intimate relationships, potential intimate relationships, family relationships, or friendships.
