  • How much longer will Americans allow themselves to be abused by Republicans?   2 weeks 6 days ago

    The Republicans are very good at giving bills great names that basically do the opposite of what they are. The Trust Act. Is a Republicon bill to cut Social Security and Medicare.

  • How much longer will Americans allow themselves to be abused by Republicans?   2 weeks 6 days ago

    There are three Democrats that have signed on to the "TRUST Act" of Mitt Romney.

    They are Kristen Sinema, Joe Manchin and Doug Jones of Alabama, none of them are up for election this cycle, and thus feel free to take a bribe from Wall Street. I sincerely hope that Pelosi does not take this up, but expect to be disappointed.

    Thom had Beyond Nuclear on yesterday to discuss the 60 million bribery case in Ohio with First Energy and its 2 Nukes in Ohio. It also own 2 reactors in PA. There is also a recent case in SC where SCANA was building 2 reactors. The CEO is convicted of pocketing about a Billion. You can bet that there is a similar scandel in GA where they are building 2 reactors to the tune of $30 billion. An example of The potential corruption in the nuclear industry is in how many cancelled plants there are.

    People are already referring to this era as The Reckoning. That is an action term or it can mean a settlement. I prefer to call it The Reflection. It suits the times. The origin of reflection is the Latin word reflectere meaning “to bend backwards, turn away” as a verb, or as a noun it’s “a remark made after turning back one’s thought on a subject”.

    The ability to disseminate information and capture images of humans and their interactions has become remarkable. It truly has forced us to see where we are, what we are doing, and to reflect on where we’ve been. By taking a good look in the mirror, perhaps we can reclaim the status of the word "humanity".

    To do so we must get through this last horrible bit of anxiety and fear while we do the WORK. Onward and upward until we can look at ourselves and say "that looks better!"

    I believe that what Trump and the Republicans are doing (i.e., related to Covid 19 and immigration) is GENOCIDE against Black and Hispanics. Do you have statistics on the percentage of Blacks and Hispanics who have died of Covid 19 compared with the total who have died??

  • How much longer will Americans allow themselves to be abused by Republicans?   2 weeks 6 days ago

    Exactly.

    One of the most absurd untruths perpetrated by corporate media financial pundits, their Wall Street masters, and right-wing "think" tanks, which until recently has been consistently reflected in polling concerning Trump's single most important advantage among low-information and ill-informed voters (the power of propaganda), is that Republicans are good for the economy -- the real economy -- much more so than Democrats.

    History proves otherwise. But reliable Republican voters, especially Trump supporters, are not interested in the truth; they only want to believe convenient and comfortable lies that fit their delusional worldviews -- pablum fed to them by stovepiped "news" sources spinning the self-dealing agendas of the rich, the powerful, and the few.

    The most telling thing about Trump supporters is, that the more Obama did to rescue the US from economic collapse, end the mortgage crisis, bring healthcare to tens of millions, save the American auto industry and regulate banking to insure that the average person would not be screwed out of their life savings, the more the Trumpers despised him. The more Trump does to bankrupt the treasury by funneling money though tax breaks to the rich, steal taxpayer money by scheduling government events and using taxpayer money to accommodate foreign representivies at his properties, incredible bungling of the Covid-19 crisis resulting in over one hundred forty thousand American deaths and on and on and on, the more they adore him.

    “person man woman camera tv”…what a fucking genius!

    Let’s face it, the US has always been a schizophrenic, yin yang duality of white supremacy, greed and fear to validate and facilitate our western expansion, contrasted with a sense of morality, justice and equality as a result of the era of enlightenment. Even this represents a revolutionary important governmental evolution that recognized that all people are equal in the eyes of the law. From our modern perspective its hard for the majority of us to believe that there was ever any doubt about this.

    Enter Donald Trump…proving that not only is there a substantial portion of the population that is still mired down in Medieval ethics unable to evolve to a higher plane. They are so bitter that they were subjected to the leadership of a black president, in response they rabidly embraced the ascension of the most morally corrupt, perversely deviant, pathological lying, despicably sadistic biped to be their messiah, as long as he validated their own greed and sense of white superiority…the nation be damned!

    Republicans can only understand the concept of “the carrot and the stick” as the proper method of controlling behavior. Should, by some miracle, Democrats regain control of the government…Republicans must be shown a lot more “stick” and a lot less “carrot.”

    George W Bush was made the president in 2000 because the US Supreme Court justices moved to halt the vote recount in Florida. In particular Antonine Scalia and Sanda Day O'Connor had publically stated their hatred for Al Gore. Scalia was also in the pockets of the energy industry and so he was also protecting his patrons.

    My granddaughter is a suburban mom from outside Portland. Her husband is a police officer. She sent this account: 'I planned on going home early last night, so I wasn’t as prepared as usual. Generally I get pepper sprayed which is slightly different than tear gas and doesn’t irritate my eyes nearly as much. Last night for some reason I was one of the very few who could still see. Most people were pretty blinded, including J who is usually very physically tough that way. I led him to a wall and was able to “go back in” and lead at least 6 more people to a safe route out. It was wild. I grabbed J, dragged him around the corner, flushed out his eyes and then got to work on other people. Before the blinding amounts of gas went off (there was already a few canisters deployed but nothing like it was a couple minutes later where people weren’t even able to see) I caught a lady who almost fell over from the flash bang that went off right by us. I think she thought there had been a car crash, or explosion or something dangerous. I was steadying her and pointing over to it saying “It’s ok. You got this. That was just a flash bang. They are just like really loud cherry bombs we set off as kids. It’s ok, you’re safe. Look at it, see, it just smokes now! Let’s get upwind.” It was surreal to be the “seasoned” protester who was able to help. I really hope no more people get seriously hurt. I have never acted like I did last night. I’ve become every type of protester and have been frustrated night after night by their actions that I am even part of a lawsuit against Portland from a sh**ty interaction in June. Sh**ty enough I reached out to an atty after it happened. But I’ve NEVER been as mad as I was last night. I was standing on a barricade thing in the middle of a barrage of rubber bullets with tear gas and explosions all around me giving the double bird to an officer who was dressed all in camo. I was yelling “Suck my d**k from behind you little b**ch! You look like a weak a** coward hiding behind all your little protective gear and your big bad gun! That scope and suppressor doesn’t trick me you mother f***er! You fire that sh** at me from this range you’ll never work again mother fu**er! Get the f**k out of my town and get a real job like the rest of us. Stop s*cking off the Donald's t*ts! We can show you how to not bend over for him!” '

  • We have now reached peak Libertarianism - and it is literally killing us   3 weeks 19 hours ago

    When you listed the federal agencies run by lobbists you forgot to mention the entire money system which is the operating system for all the rest. And this system has been run by lobbyists and special interests (pun intended) since back to the Roman Empire according to my understanding of David Graeber's work on the subject. When the operating system of accounting for/annotating of the economic activity of the populace is done with accounting units that are themselves a creation of and by and for the very special interest folk at the top, it makes little sense to say we must get billionaires and their money out of politics unless you are also calling for an entirely different way of doing this thing called money.

    The thing is that the very way that we are doing money cannot stop creating instability, and it cannot stop enabling the creation of imperialist billionaires and all that goes with that. It simply is Not Possible that the way we are doing the thing called money can produce any different results. The system itself creates instability. It is built right into the structure of the system. So moral indignation will not effect change unless that indignation motivates people to get out of the insanity of the current way we do money and we envision a way to do accounting using a definition of money that is not authoritarian and imperialistic. There really is a simle way of looking at this thing called money that literally takes the power away from the special interests. Money is just an abstract representational device to keep track of something else - not itself!
    Narayana Kocherlakota, former President of the Minneapolis Fed puts it in these words:
    “My argument demonstrates the vacuity of the three standard explanations of the role of fiat money in an economy: money acts as a store of value, a medium of exchange, and a unit of account....The traditional explanations for the presence of money in an economy are more descriptive of its functions than explanatory. The true explanation for money’s presence is that money is a record-keeping device.”
    https://www.minneapolisfed.org/research/qr/qr2231.pdf (pages 2-3)

    Once we come to know that that is the role of money then lots of other stuff falls out. No magical imperial money creator. No interest on the creation of or fees for the use of the accounting unit. No 'precreation' of the accounting unit ahead of and apart from the economic activity that it is an abstract representation of.

    The libertarian folk like to suggest that the market is what rules everything - but the market cannot even take its rightful place within human interactivity so long as the control over the creation of the abstract accounting unit is a separate function from all the rest of the economic activity and so long as the accounting unit is itself bought and sold as one of the commodities in that same market! THAT is an absurdity and lies at the heart of the way to address all this insanity.

    We already know that the illegitimate claim of superiority of one class over another in feudal class based systems or caste systems is bogus. But we seem oblivious to the illegitimate superiority claims and ill-gotten gains in status when applying math acumen to abstract insanities like usury, fractional reserve money creation, increases from derivatives of make believe systems of “value” all created out of thin air!

    Marc Gauvin of the MSTA puts it like this:
    "All we can do is share knowledge and make it as easy as possible for as many as possible to understand how money cannot be both a record of value and a tradable commodity and why that legally invalidates current practices that are only assumed to be valid but are proven not to be.

    We along with other leading experts such Naryana Kocherlakota Towsend et al have considered everything you discuss and more and have concluded that money's only technological role is that of a record-keeping device.
    Our approach uses formal (decidable) semantic analysis, information theory and dynamic systems control and stability theory to arrive unequivocally at the same conclusion Kocherlokato does but adding what the record is of i.e. value.

    What has never been done so far is to make the link between the fact of a complete lack of formal definition and specification of money, the "vacuousness" of common notions of money and universally stated legal requirements for validity of money contracts. See:

    http://www.mrcenter.info/Doc/ConferencePapers/2015/MRC_2015_Gauvin_Meira_Final_Release_Amendement_for_Publication.pdf

    Our purpose now is to make this common knowledge and focus on these facts before the current unconscionable transfer of the majority of key life support assets and infrastructure culminates and is made practically irreversible.

    The idea being that once the deeds to the controlling shares of life support on the planet have been transferred via such contracts and under the hitherto unchallenged cursory assumption of their validity, then the legal argument to reverse them becomes practically irreversible because of the inability to disprove the presumption of having operated in good faith under said practices, that failed to be adequately proven invalid or even challenged at the time of their auspicious execution. All this being a systemic effect of the incongruence of the logic underlying money, irrespective of the wishes of any agents acting under its yoke."

    "Make America white again"? America was never all white. What about our Natve Americans? They have a right to be here. They were here before the white people started coming here. We need to get that monster out of office, as well as the rest of the Nazi eugenicists out of their offices, any way we can. Voting them out may not be enough.

    Pssst! Whatabout evidently swallows modern-day American fascism hook, line, and sinker with myopic posts and one-sided links to the far, far right of Attila the Hun, defending the flagrantly unconstitutional and illegal tactics of the "Brownshirts" of the Department of Homeland Security, which borrowed its title from the German concept of "der heimatland," cited extensively by the Nazis to inspire a white (Aryan) national identity among its citizens.

    I need to dwell on his issue. Thom reports that the police unions of Portland, Chicago and NY have asked for federal troops.

    The unions have no authority to ask for anything. This is a gross violation of their contracts with the city's. The mayors could and should use this as a valid reason to negate the contracts, then set about trimming down and reorganizing the police departments.

    Seattle has a progress mayor who is a lesbian, and a black female police chief, whom I assume has progressive tendencies, yet they are unable to reign in the police. The same with Minneapolis, it has a progressive mayor and progressive chief (I think) but is unable to reign in the thugs in blue.

    Progressives should be focusing their attention on, and finding ways to negate (fire) the so called benevolent associations of these police departments. But I am sure that such action by the heads of the police unions are sufficient grounds to negate any contracts and maybe even prosecute the union head.

    I was an SEIU shop steward and pro union, but these so called police benevolent associations are not genuine unions and only a handful are associated with any national union organization.

  • Will Trump's Secret Police Succeed in Provoking Riots in Your City?   3 weeks 1 day ago

    This talk about Senators trying to push legislation, and Congress passing legislation is well and good, however the Senate will not pass any legislation that restricts Trump, now will Trump sign it. So it is an exercise in futility, great PR I suppose for elections, but an exercise in futility none the less.

    It seems to me that the only answer is for the Democratic governors to mobilize the National Guard and have them arrest these invaders. I don't buy the excuse that they don't have the authority. These camoflagued thugs are invaders, breaking the law, they weren't invited in and they are not authorized by any Federal law. Perhaps they can guard federal buildings, but when they step one foot over federal property they are criminals.

    Mayors can not count on their cops, nor the county sheriff, as those organizations are compromised (Oath keepers) and are as fascist as the Trump administration.

    The only option then is the National Guard, however that does raise an issue of Trump mobilizing the National Guard. A problem occurs because it places the National Guard in the position of arresting federal "law enforcement". I am not a lawyer or constitutional authority, and would like to know all of the ramifications .

    My question is why don't the mayors fire the police and cut the contract with the police unions, after all the unions that have prevailed on Trump to invade the cities have voided their contract, if any, with the city.

Trump is willing to let more people die to steal an election. Will he get away with it?

Thom plus logo Last year the US Postal Service delivered over 1 billion prescriptions to Americans. It's the main way that veterans get their medications, and increasingly all across America people are getting their pharmaceuticals that way.

Donald Trump doesn't care. He doesn't care how many people die because their medications are late and they go into diabetic shock or their blood pressure explodes. He just doesn't care.
