It’s Not Marxism, Paranoid Stupid
Dear Editors [New York Times]:
On the New York Times best seller list is a book by Fox Comedy News, Mark Levin, titled, American Marxism. From the various reviews I have read, I have no desire to purchase this book. I might wish to borrow it from a local library, read it, and then return it.
I will use a better word to describe Mark Levin than paranoid stupid. How about paranoid ignorant? This at least means I have hope ignorance will lead Levin to open mind, become humble, and LEARN and GAIN WISDOM. Will it? My doubts are high.
I have met too many people in upstate New York and elsewhere who are paranoid regarding the Bolsheviks of 1917 or the Castro communists of 1959-60. One would think the ones who recall their grandfathers and the Bolsheviks would have, by now, recognized that they are being paranoid. I am sick and tired of hearing such paranoid jerks attack Americans, many of us descended from the American Revolutionaries and earlier. Like me. They insult me. They insult many of us who are good people. A Sunday school teacher who taught us about geography of the Middle East during the time of Christ and other Christian ideas is falsely called a communist because he is a Democrat. I observed this crap as a kid growing up in m hometown. That teacher never taught us about the communes developed by early Christians. I learned that later in life. Plus I also learned about the comparison to American hippies during Vietnam who created communes. In both cases, according to the documentary of FACTS that I viewed, neighther the communes of the early Christians or those of the hippie communities, opposed to the Vietnam conflict, had a common thread which meant they did not survive. That common thread is also present with Trump, Hitler, Mussolini, Nazis, fascists, and the Bolsheviks. It is described as “power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” The paranoid ignorant ones force us all into a corner with ideas for dictatorial powers with “power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Perhaps Levin needs to consider this and stop the BS of paranoia which helps him sell a book.
My book would be about true regulated capitalism and balance in capitalism. But does it get published in order to get on the NY Times best seller lists? Not on your life.
I, too, get falsely accused of being socialist or communist. Such paranoid people who do this refuse to listen to what I say about improving capitalism. They believe free markets are the ONLY answer – the END ALL, while ignoring the evidence from the 18th-century theologian and author of writings like Wealth of Nations and Theories of Moral Sentiment. In those writings, Adam Smith proved for us, based on economic events in the late 18th Century similar to the George W. Bush recession of 2008. Idiots tarnish good people’s character, as well as the solutions which just might work, in the name of emotions, paranoia, individualism (anti-vaxer idiots), and instant gratification so prevalent they become as violent as the Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, QAnon and push for “liberty with guns.” It is actually, liberty for one group to attain power and control. White folks. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
That is what these paranoid stupid idiots want for America. In the process, they remove “liberty and justice for all.” After repetition of the Pledge of Allegiance all those times, these paranoid stupid idiots become hypocrites, endorsing their form of religion in a nation which was built with ideas for separation of church and state.
It’s stupidity, stupid, and there is no ambiguity to it. It’s pretty plain and simple. I don’t force my religion on others, but those who wish to do so attempt to find validation with words like “interpretation” of separation of church and state. There is no interpretation. It’s pretty damn clear. You wisth to have me force my religious beliefs through law and SCOTUS, I can attempt to do it. But I don’t. Why? Because actions to promote one religion over others within our democracy removes “liberty and justice for all.” I refuse to dot that. Goddamn those who want to force ME to be a heterosexual by way of laws and SCOTUS because I am NOT heterosexual. Just to borrow one example. A person in a Rick Scott run hospital in Florida told me that I am a sinner. He denied my liberty and justice for all, as I was lying on an ER bed with congestive heart failure. Goddamn Rick Scott and anyone in that hospital chain which wishes to push for legislation and judges at the Federal level which will endorse THEIR religious ideas in this regard. No one forces GODDAMN Rick Scott to be a homosexual. My apologies for using such words, but imagine being in an ER and being told by an asshole that one is a sinner. Pretty damn clear and no “interpretation” of the ideas of separation of church and state. So I say, GODDAMN such people and with fervor. If I am saying GODDAMN to those who don’t know what it means to be a true believer of God and the fact that we are all children of God, then I don’t want that person sitting in the U.S. Senate and using the GODDAMN filibuster there to stampede our government. I am even critical of President Biden for refusing to stop that GODDAMN filibuster. He can do better than that because it’s not his “father’s’ U.S. Senate anymore.
Adam Smith endorsed the ideas that imperfect humans with their imperfect human institutions need to have regulation because free markets are overtaken by greed, selfishness, and individualism which then destroys capitalist competition and creates huge corporate monopolies. Such big corporations are like a centralized socialism and Bolshevik style communism, as well as a Hitler/Mussolini/Tojo type of government and economics. I may have once voted for Bernie Sanders, but I adamantly oppose centralized minimum wages because cost of living differences around this nation are very different. Again. This answer, minimum wage, is more useful to centralized unregulated corporations and destroys local small businesses like those in upstate NY. There might be other things for which I like Bernie Sanders, but not this one. But I don’t tarnish his image, as the Bolshevik-induced paranoid stupidity or that of a Marco Rubio from Cuba.
In the process, small business is destroyed and then socialists address issues related ONLY to management and enslaved workers. Along comes a pandemic and suddenly the way to handle it is to only consider things which are pertinent to big corporate monopolies and the job creation. Nothing is considered for how we can create opportunities for entrepreneurs and American ingenuity. To the paranoid jerks who fear Bolsheviks and Castro, all they do is look for how to enslave people with big corporations and their own false interpretations about what God is about. That is as bad as Marxism which taught that religion is the “opiate of the masses.”
In the process of all of this, the paranoid jerks descended from the Bolsheviks and the Cuban ones (who beat in the skull of a teacher in Florida for not agreeing with their system of dictatorship which came from a man named Battista who was just as bad as Castro; czars who were just as bad as the Bolsheviks). I am sick and tired of these people with their paranoid stupidity and such loud mouths and money (i.e., Levin of Fox and the stupidity of his book) that I sometimes wish to scream, “it takes a village” or “let us coexist and work collectively to solve our problems by ridding this nation of the GODDAMN political spectrum which people cling to and then we have extremists on the right and the left (more right extremists than left, but listen to the stupidity of Fox and Trump and one would think there is just as much on the left – BS because I have not yet met one person who proclaims they are part of Antifa (Anti-fascists). But I have met plenty who hide their actions under a sheet or are violent like Proud Boys. Perhaps I am stupid, would you say? I don’t think so. THINK.
This is my nation. Interesting how Bolsheviks and the Castro communists were homophobic. The Cuban author, L’Arenas, worked for Castro in that revolution, but that gay man was then spit out by the very people for whom he worked. Imprisoned by Castro, he contracted the HIV virus and then moved to the USA where he died. On the Statue of Liberty: “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.” Goddamn the hypocrites who wish to remove that idea from America. For it is immigrants who helped build America, from the days of Italian servitude building the Erie Canal, one of the biggest influences on building commerce in New York state and for this nation, making this nation GREAT. No. someone wants to put a Goddamn wall up, ignoring this statement about liberty and not finding SOLUTIONS in order to better handle the situations at the border. Why don’t we be like the Bolsheviks and build a wall, you damn stupid jackasses? Then procure a book by Mark Levin, American Marxism which wrongly portrays good people as being Marxists. How about a book titled, American Regulated Capitalism and Democracy in Order to Make America Great Again? I have read writings of a Republicans whom Donald Trump has tweeted his displeasure and this guy has written about regulated capitalism. I suppose these jackass stupid paranoid ones think Joe Scarborough is a Marxist or communist, too? Then, those on the left, the extremists of bleeding heart liberals, will also not line up behind what Scarborough says? Probably not, due to American individualism which has resulted in DUI offenses, Prohibition, war on drugs, importation of Afghan poppies (for drugs), anti-marijuana dolts who force DUI on us within communities, based on THEIR religious beliefs imposed upon all of us (Baptists particularly) and not ocming to agreement as to how abortions can be handled with reasonable integrity, considering protection of both mother and child and screw the religious aspect of it (I had a great-grandmother, wife of a Methodist pastor, die in the days before abortions because both mother and child died and she never got to live and give this world more children – or those who use coat hangers and die).
So rather than being able to publish a book contrary and contentious with the stupidity of what Mark Levin says, I write diatribes like this one with great length. Need I apologize? I think not. The issue is individualism and instant gratification which has destroyed savings and loans and replaced them with credit cards and debt, stupid. Thus, it makes it far more difficult to do savings for the future. Automobiles have destroyed passenger trains and buses for the public. It’s the individualism and instant gratification becoming predominant in America today, not Marxism, stupid. But then, these stupid ones with their paranoia are just like the stupidity of Karl Marx himself who had no brain at all. People who resemble one way like to point the fingers at others who they believe have the very qualities they represent. Unbelievable.
PBS Frontline Report: Human beings do it better than computers
After spending today speaking with the scumbag automated system put in place by a huge corporation which caters to hedge hogs, greed, selfishness, and love of money, I ended the day by listening to the PBS Frontline report about the Boeing 737 Max. I come away scratching my head about the common thread which runs through my personal experience with an automated system and the deaths of 300+ people. My experience is not a life and death experience. But it does leave us feeling as if no one gives one damn about the time it takes humans to deal with automated systems which are really screwed up because the big fat pigs at the top, making 10005 plus more than what the ones at the top made in the 1970s by getting rid of human beings.
The automated systems being used on the aircraft are designed to take away the ability of human pilots to have better control over the aircraft. The digital parts then miscalculate and the planes go down, killing all passengers. Love of money, materialism, greed, individualistic fat pigs at the top, and selfishness override human beings. These guys do not give one damn about the people who died in those crashes. It was made very evident today.
The fat pigs at the top of huge corporate conglomerates which automate their customer services, from a newspaper media company to an electric utility to Internet service providers to mobile phone providers (and others), these pigs at the top are not being held accountable. It took an awful lot of corrupt handling of the FAA (by Boeing), over a long period of time, and investigative reporting which finally brought down the CEO at Boeing. FINALLY.
And freaking Mitch McConnell works to make things even worse by using the money he made from taxpayers to suppress voters and taxpayers in various states because that is the only way such freaking Republicans know how to win an election. They cannot win on issues. Whether politician like McConnell or the hedge hog big fat pigs, there is the similarity of a lack of concern for people, across the board.
Finally, in the end, the famiiies of those who died in the crashes won big money in a lawsuit. Another example of reactionary actions rather than tough proactive actions being taken by lawyers and politicians (as with personal injury lawsuits and workman’s comp) PRIOR to something like these events. The lousy deregulation environment for “free markets,” by Reagan, Republicans and freaking lousy Libertarians has brought this down on America today. I believe we need to stand up strongly and change to the proactive and dump the reactionary BS. The reactionary stuff is about awarding money, another example of love of money, rather than putting human interests first in a proactive manner. Tell me. Exactly what good does it do for those people to NOT have their loved ones, but have money instead? You cannot take your toys to heaven, especially when humans are crating a hell on earth.
I have written about this theme over and over and over again. Yet, we see how hard it is to find a solution from crashes and come to a reactionary resolution. Also, how short will the memories of Americans be, after those who suffered, the victims and the families, get resolution. If one person suffers, we all suffer. When will Americans learn from what has happened and be more vocal about the suffering which has an impact on all of us? How long does it take for people to stand up and take the stand, rather than working with freaking lousy Republicans who are trying to repress the voting in America and don’t do one damn thing to solve the problems of America in a proactive way?
Furthermore, the Boeing executive did exactly what many healthcare workers have been doing to me and many of my diabetic friends. If the expensive medications don’t work, then blame the patients. Same thing at Boeing. Blame the human pilots when those pilots had their hands tied when trying to reverse the hellish thing the automated system was doing to the aircraft. Blame the humans because it costs less to take care of digital machines than it does to take care of human beings. Blame those who are victims of the process of giving only blanket solutions which might not work for some people on a one to one basis. Blame the demand side of the market, in favor of the freaking lousy Reagan attitude about supply side economics. How about if we hold the fat pigs at the top accountable more often? How about if we hold fat pig McConnell and the lousy Republican followers of Trump? How about if we hold THEM accountable for COVID-19 and the lack of putting forth a war on a pandemic? Hospitals which transported patients to nursing homes across state lines are the responsibility of Trump and the lousy Republicans who go along with him and that lousy fascist leadership. They have no interest in human lives. Oh, that’s right. I already said that.
Why do my medications no longer work for me? The money used to pay for this crap, either by me or by way of Medicare, is being wasted when not working. Why? In my early stages of type II diabetes, a doctor over-prescribed metformin and I was left with lactic acidosis. Lactic acidosis CAN BE FATAL. I count my blessings because, while it ended up giving me some heart problems, I survived. I am a survivor, but we are not talking about cancer. We are talking about the wrong dosage of prescriptions made by a medical doctor and never identified by a pharmacist. The net result was the hospital costs picked up by big insurance. Those costs COULD have been avoided.
Then, when endocrinologists began putting me on insulin, I took two dosages from two different injections each day. I was warned that my numbers might go to low so I should carry glucose tablets with me. How many times did I use those tablets? Zero times. My numbers never went down to hypoglycemic levels. Yet, there was more concern about that than to fix the problem as to why I rarely got my glucose levels below 100. Sure. My A1C did decrease. But my fat on my bones went up exponentially, from 220 up to nearly 280. Just look at the photos of me in 2016 and look at me today. Then to discover that one of the common effects of insulin is to give weight gain.
Today, I am off the insulin injections (Tresiba). By no longer injecting insulin and utilizing an injection of a medicine by Novo Nordisk, I was able to get my glucose levels down and took off enough weight to drop back down to the 220 range. But, I am on the plateau of 220 or so, as I have been for years and can never dispose of the fats on the abdomen. Research shows that fat on the abdomen is what blocks any insulin, even that produced by the body, in doing its job.
And my glucose levels seem to not be responding at all to all of the meds I am now taking. Thus, healthcare workers blame ME, as did the executive at Boeing blame the human pilots. Mr/Ms Healthcare Worker, I have been exercising and cannot drop the weight on the abdomen, so give me a suggestion for what I can do? Mr/Ms Healthcare Worker: “you are not doing enough.” It’s my fault – the fault of the patient, right? “You need to do situps.” I don’t do situps but regularly do standing up toe touchers and others to exercise the same as siups do. I sometimes do the situps, but if I cannot do them, I do the ones to exercise the abdomen in other ways. I ride a stationary bike and/or walk nearly every day. But. It’s my fault, don’t you know. I have heard other diabetics in Florida among the older population describe this situation, similar to mine, so I don’t speak alone.
After all. I am a human being and we need to blame human beings, right? Isn’t that what America has become? A nation which blames imperfect human beings and refusing to find rational solutions? After experiencing what I describe with my type II diabetes, what I experience with lousy customer service run by automated systems, and now what I heard tonight about what Boeing did (with influence over Congress and the FAA), I really am appalled when I add all of this up in America today. Then a Republican leadership unconcerned about the people of America and only about their pocketbooks with a love of money, I find it all very appalling, especially when stupid people wish to blame the Democrats. About the only Democrats i would blame is the bitch from Arizona and the blue dog from West Virginia. Arizona where the bitch is likely running scared at the voter suppression out there. Sorry. Perhaps I should not call her a bitch. One particular bitch out in Arizona is actually the leader of the Republican Party out there. She turns the Democrat out there into someone whom I call a bitch.
My hats off to those who did the story on Frontline. We need far more of those types of stories, especially stories to expose the corruption of Mitch McConnell and the Republican leadership, plus Rick Scott, Ron DeSantis, and Marco Rubio of Florida. Rick Scott with a fifth. Methodist or not, he is an asshole. And the ones who cry “Marxist Democrats” are the ones who ARE the Marxists, as they push the lies of propaganda upon the population and call themselves Republicans when, indeed, they are doing what the Bolshevik (Marxists) did in Russia in 1917. RINOs and DINOs wake up to what truly is happening in America today.
