folks

Lot’s of folks have the attitude that protests, voting, calling your representatives and all the activities that a democracy entails don’t work. They could be right but consider that even if they don’t work, they elevate consciousness, they elevate the collective conscience, they bring publicity, they force people to confront their lackadaisical attitudes. The more that participate the more likely that a revolution will sweep across nations. Revolutions gain momentum one person at a time until it becomes a momentum, an unstoppable force- history proves that human rights have improved over the years…

I’m currently binge watching Hill Street Blues on Hulu and am enjoying it immensely. In light of the current state of our police in general, the producers- even if Hollywood- give a view of police and community relations that may well be lacking these days. The Hill Street cops don’t go in with guns blazing at every traffic stop or hostage situation even if the perpetrator is armed- they try to negotiate and if they fail feel remorse. Since I have mostly lived in the country since 1975, rural cops don’t face the pressures that big city cops face- but that is no excuse to be the thugs that many seem to be. Back to the Hill Street series, it is funny without a laugh track (extra bonus for me), dramatic with a bit of schmaltz, often poignant and very well thought out for a weekly series. As an added bonus many of the guests went on to their own series or had parts in others. All in all, it’s worth viewing even if you have seen it before or even more so if you have never seen it. It ranks right up there with Barney Miller, LA Law and numerous other series that ran for more than 5 years. And without commercials it is a real joy. Each episode is 48 minutes, although early TV had 52 minutes, with today’s TV 42 minutes or less for an hour show.

bankrupt

Bankrupting is the elites way of stripping assets directly into their pockets. Get a loan, default on it and never have to pay it back. It’s like buying a new car and as soon as you drive it off the lot, it’s worth less- that’s the corporate profit taken right off the top…

regress

From your point of view and that simply is the problem- what choice do regressives have? However, we only have ourselves to blame from LBJ, Nixon, Ford, Reagan and so on as each one and their congresses have further tightened the noose until we are at the point where presidents are equally abhorrent to each party. And that has gotten worse since Citizens United decision by a conservative court. Conservatives hate the government but don’t recognize that corporations run the government but yet think corporations are their saviors – it’s a joke straight out of 1984. Conservatives have been running this country for almost 40 years and are able to blame all our problems on immigrants, China and the plethora of boogie men when congress gave the tax credits to corporations to move jobs out of the United States, run up the deficits to fight endless wars and give even more subsidies to corporations and regressives are so asleep they applaud- look at your pro-Trump websites- all you see is are posts like “Is Trump doing a good job?” No discussion of what he and the GOP actually advocate and are going to pass in the next four years. So I see the problem is that regressives and HRC supporters are actually proud of their ignorance- I don’t see it changing anytime soon- so yea, good luck buddy enjoy the pollution, enjoy having your retirement taken away, enjoy working for shit wages- you’ve earned it!

genocide

The recent attention being made to the extreme right relies on its acceptance as an ideology. The goal is genocidal anarchy and the right and consent to kill, injure, arrest and destroy property of anyone who doesn’t think like they do, look like they do and adhere to mythical values that only fools describe as “freedom.” That is why it must be shut down before it snowballs into an unstoppable avalanche…

econ

There are three basic economies- 1) Wall Street and the use of government subsidies for the elites; 2) the lower economy that is self contained in the poor where limited money circulates; 3) The overlapping economy where the rich prey on the poor with big box stores, big oil and power companies and the use of local governments to extract taxes and user fees. Anyone with half a brain needs to understand that the more money that circulates- even if it is in the hands of the poor for seconds- the better the lifestyle of the lower classes. What we have seen is that at any one time the money supply is finite and concentrated in the hands of the elite bubble and never sees the light of day to the lower classes. Wall Street uses their control to extract even more money in fees on pension funds, bank accounts and insurance. The rest of the economy is limited by the infinitesimal amounts of money circulating at any given time which percentages are extracted by the elites daily. This is simply the libertarian model where profits are privatized and risks passed to the government and the people. This is not capitalism by any stretch of the imagination.

deSade

Those who are unhappy clutch at shadows, and to give themselves an enjoyment that truth refuses them, they artfully bring into being all sorts of illusions.

March

Have you heard this before? “Marches don’t work,” “Voting don’t work,” “Calling your congressperson don’t work”- Every major change or revolution has happened because people got out into the streets. When people were ignored, they struck- refused to work. If that didn’t work, they revolted and changed their government.
I’m not saying it’s easy to change wrong-headed policies, it’s more than a few words on a page. Slowly but surely people are being backed into the proverbial corner…
