The intent of this blog is to promote human equality, human progress, human peace and justice, and optimism. To accomplish this, to encourage the discussion of ideas after identifying and discovering problems, and then creating positive solutions for "we the people," in order to provide for the "general welfare" and "domestic tranquility" of America now and its "posterity" into the future. To encourage an emphasis on separation of religion and state for all, no matter if this is for those "of faith" in a Maker / Creator (Deists, God-loving people, Christians, various people of spirituality) and atheists or agnostics.

The New York Times gives you: “The Violent Fantasies of [tRUMPican] Blake Masters of Arizona”

Blake Masters is running for the U.S. Senate and endorsed by tRUMP. He wants to accomplish: “mandating patriotic curriculums in schools, supporting the formation of “native-born” families, banning abortion and pornography, and turning back the rights revolution for L.G.B.T.Q. Americans.”

Perhaps to immigrants, I could suggest he build a fortress all around Florida shores and that will solve the problems, no doubt? 

Read it and weep. Or read it and be moved to action against this dictatorial idiot who wishes to rid us of things like freedom of religion, guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution and live in the past rather than learn from the past and allow us all to move forward in peace and justice for all humanity.  I am not saying this as a “bleeding heart” liberal, but as a Christian who understands what Jesus Christ was truly about.  Blake and the “New Right” have absolutely no idea what humanity and Christ are truly about. And I did not dictate to him what his beliefs should be about religion, LGBTQ, anti-abortion. But he wishes to dictate to us and force his ideas down our throats. 

Fix or Destroy?

The Beatles: “All you need is love… love is all you need, love is all you need.”

The Beatles: “With a little help from my friends.”

The Beatles: “Come together…” and coexist.

The Beatles:

You say you want a revolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
You tell me that it’s evolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world

But when you talk about destruction
Don’t you know that you can count me out

Don’t you know it’s gonna be
All right?
Don’t you know it’s gonna be (all right)
Don’t you know it’s gonna be (all right)

You say you’ll change the constitution
Well, you know
We’d all love to change your head
You tell me it’s the institution
Well, you know
You better free your mind instead

But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao
You ain’t going to make it with anyone anyhow

Don’t you know it’s gonna be (all right)
Don’t you know it’s gonna be (all right)
Don’t you know it’s gonna be (all right)

Stevie Wonder: “love’s in need of love today…”

Somebody says to me, “Americans don’t like change.” Oh, yeah? Then why is it that followers of propaganda broadcasting Fox are getting on board for a Trumpican type of change called DESTRUCTION? That is change.

There are two forms of change. (1) Destroy and (2) reform. Destroy is done with a dictatorship and leaves many people out. Reform is done with democracy and works to attempt to embrace as many as possible, even though it is IMPERFECT as humans and human institutions are. If the person who said this said, “Americans don’t like reform,” I would believe it. But too many Americans are giving in to the FUCKING … yes I said FUCKING…. Nazi fascists in the form of people like FUCKING Trump or FUCKING Palladino or FUCKING ROMAN CATHOLIC RON DESANTIS. FUCKING people who don’t deserve a life because they only want to destroy what is good in America, due to the imperfections THEY DON’T LIKE. Excuse me for using the acronym FORNICATION UNDER CONSENT OF KING (OR QUEEN).

It is not with arrogance I say this. It is with love of country and what the Founding Fathers of this nation gave us. Deists, not Christians, in the Founding Fathers. This is NOT a Christian nation, but a secular nation with the freedom to worship and hold spiritual beliefs each one of us chooses. That is part of LIBERTY and FREEDOM, protected by many people in the past who put their lives on the line to protect this LIBERTY and FREEDOM … LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL. Trumpicans have no idea what LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL, with all its IMPERFECTIONS, truly means. The arrogant ones are those who follow Fox, Murdoch the asshole and all those others.

Yes, Americans don’t like change. But the change they embrace is destruction of what has made this nation great over many years.

Here are the things which are being done to put in place CHANGE for the sake of the wealthy and the FUCKING puritanical Protestants and American Roman Catholic bishops – dictators, plus for the sake of wealthy fat pigs and the corporate welfare they continue to enforce CHANGE upon America for the benefit of ONLY corporate welfare. This list demonstrates how the person who made this statement about “Americans don’t want change,” to be an imbecilic remark not worth considering. That’s the STUPIDITY in America today. Rather than work to do change which is in the form of REFORM and considering how to make life better for America, theses fucking assholes devote our tax dollars and money to shit so as to destroy, destroy, destroy, not reform, reform, reform.

1. Abortion and Roe v. Wade. It has its imperfections, but the FUCKING AMERICAN CATHOLIC ROMAN BISHOPS, with money from FUCKING LOUSY AMERICANS just want it destroyed and ignore the young folks rape and date rape, from public schools to college and above. Destroy, destroy, destroy, not reform, reform, reform.

2. Rick the Prick Scott, Reagan and the privatization of America’s public hospitals. Destroy, destroy, destroy, not reform, reform, reform.

3. Betsy DeVoss and the Bush family with others (Jeb Bush) to endorse wishes of the Roman Catholic bishops and the fucking pigs who are recipients of corporate welfare, work to privatize public education by DESTROYING public education and then claiming, “it does not work.” That is bullshit because public education, if funded correctly, has proven to work in America. Destroy, destroy, destroy, not reform, reform, reform.

3. The Bush Republicans and their destruction of the FS&L system put in place by FDR and the Democrats. Change for the sake of whom? Neil Bush or George W. Bush and his money in the Cayman Islands rather than invested in America – you know, the fucking idiot who said, “what’s good for business is good for America.” Translated from the corporate welfare pigs: “what’s good for corporate welfare is good for America.” Destroy, destroy, destroy, not reform, reform, reform.

4. The Reagan deregulation and destruction and eventual destruction of PUHCA legislation under Shrub gave us supply-side economics and destroyed the ideas of capitalism called supply AND DEMAND. All of these CHANGES were done and many Americans just embraced them, like lemmings being led off a cliff. Destroy, destroy, destroy, not reform, reform, reform.

5. The change to thumbing practices with noses in cell phones was done with the net result of destruction of local newspapers and a claim, “no one wants to read newspapers any more.” Fuck that because when you remove the local content and DICTATE and PUSH nationalized news upon the people, of COURSE THEY WON’T READ IT. It polarized America in the process while stupid idiots in the lower classes simply went along with the changes and, in fact with this peer pressure groupthink they FORCE us to accept these changes, working with the change mastering destroyers. Destroy, destroy, destroy, not reform, reform, reform.

6. Local broadcasting destroyed in order to make room for the fucking THUMBING and NOSES IN THE MOBILE and for the corporate welfare system to be strengthened. There are people who live on the hills of upstate New York in lower dense populations than those in the valleys who get better reception of local broadcasting than those in the valleys where the population is slightly more dense. And there are those who are ready to defend these changes made, as if it is all for the “sake of money.” Go to hell. If it were, then we would have radio and television which was powerful enough to reach the hills AND the valleys. Fuck the FCC for allowing this, in the name of honor for cell phones. Changes, for sure. Changes in the form of DESTRUCTION. And lousy Americans just sitting idly by and allowing such destruction. Destroy, destroy, destroy, not reform, reform, reform.

7. Don’t pay taxes and place a heavier burden on those who do who don’t want to act like rats and turn in those who do not. In many cases, I am on the same side of those who don’t pay it, but I believe in this nation to try to do my best to pay taxes, not be a criminal and NOT pay taxes. I understand why they don’t want to pay regressive income taxes or don’t want to pay taxes on services, especially if it is a small business which finds accountants and lawyers hired to help them pay taxes are eating into their profits, something which did not happen before “Rocky’s Tax” in NY and income taxes anywhere. Tariffs supported American business and its domestic products, while putting taxes on imported goods which were commonly snarfed up by wealthy fat pigs and robber barons in America. Tariffs are a FORM of VALUE-ADDED TAX. But no, we have fucking lousy regressive income taxes, fucking lousy sales taxes, corporate welfare fat pigs keeping Social Security insolvent by not paying as much into it as the common folk (and resisting the change but endorsing the destruction of ALL Social Security, plus moves under Shrub to change Medicare for the sake of big insurance and big pharma so as to sabotage and create and atmosphere that the common folk jump on the bandwagon like a bunch of lemmings being led over a cliff). Destroy, destroy, destroy, not reform, reform, reform.

Need I go on? I could add a number of other things in which there is change, but change only for the benefit of the corporate welfare state, not for WE THE PEOPLE, the first words of the U.S. Constitution. Or not to create liberty and justice for all. Or not to endorse the ideas about “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” for ALL Americans. They do a better job in socialist-capitalist Scandinavia than here in America. Survey after survey says the Danes are the “happiest people on earth.” They don’t have dictatorships, but democracies, alongside the capitalist PRIVATE businesses like Volvo which operate in a capitalist SUPPLY AND DEMAND system, not pretending that robber baron-induced supply-side economics is capitalism. In America, liars, liars, pants on fire. And lemmings in the common folk who are so stupid and idiotic they go along. Silly me for being so mean in saying this. After all, with decades of Trumpican type sabotage of PUBLIC EDUCATION, I should feel sorry for these people. Not if they insist on digging in their heals and perhaps saying I am arrogant. I don’t feel sorry for them with their lack of ability to LISTEN and LEARN. Without the listen and learn, perhaps I should feel sorry for them. But what good does feeling sorry for such people do for America, the land I love.

In line with what I say, let us consider what Warren Buffett and others have said.

Warren Buffett says what? The results of a search in Google can tell us some. But he has recommended easy changes and fixes which might work. But even Warren Buffett is NOT PERFECT. He is just one of many Americans with suggestions for America. One thing I do recall is that the U.S. Code (the words which conclude all the legislation in this nation) is convoluted and that Congress needs to take a vacation from legislating for a time and review that U.S. Code, tossing out all that is part of it which is really too convoluted. Unlike the Trumpicans who want to toss out parts of the U.S. Constitution after taking an oath to defend it (like FUCKING Clarence Thomas and Kavanaugh and Barrett with regard to religious freedom in this nation), the aim should be the U.S. Code. Did Buffett say this? Seems like I recall hearing about it at one time. Read all about it. The results of a search on Google. Read all about it. That’s the way it was… Read and weep.

Local Binghamton CBS affiliate, channel 12

Dear Sirs or Madams (of CBS Sixty Minutes):

We regularly watch Sixty Minutes and appreciate having this news AND information source available to us. We despise Fox News with its lies. the National Association of Broadcasters needs to put Fox out of business. 

We have a bumper sticker which reads: “We get our NEWS from Comedy Central and our entertainment from Fox News.”  That about describes what we have to the nth degree in America today, due to the Republican destruction of the Fairness Doctrine which was put in place in the 1940s to guard against Nazi propaganda which had destroyed Germany.  In the 1940s, everyone was in agreement, so this was a bipartisan decision.

For some 20 years or more, I have written to publications and the media. I have used local newspapers and local television outlets, as well as networks. I write to Sixty Minutes, especially when I hear the recently repeated story about robots (Anderson Cooper?).  I write about many other news reports. With the demise of local news, by hedgefund lovers of money (also a recent story on Sixty Minutes), I have watched as my writings have not been published.  At first, I was puzzled. As time has gone by and with the wisdom of age, I have discovered the reasons.  Both your Sixty Minutes report and an article in The Economist and other publications have unraveled the mystery and puzzle to me.  When one relies only on intuition and observation of actual events at a Florida newspaper and elsewhere, it is good to find out that what I have been writing about what I KNOW has been correct, it is sad that no one pays attention to me anymore.  At one time, before the older great journalists retired – the people of good will running local newspaper – I was accepted. Now I feel as if I am on the outside looking in when most of what I have written has been correct.

Wat I am finding is that my distribution to a local Binghamton Fox affiliate has been read by such people at Fox. What do they do? Just as Trump does. Put a spin on what I say that is in line with their lies and re-distribute.  There is no teamwork among people of good will in the media business and that is a crying shame.  So, I have removed the Fox affiliate from my distribution.  I have removed Sean Hanity from my distribution list. 

With this being said, what about the other three Binghamton television network affiliates? NBC and ABC affiliates in Binghamton are run by one owner. The local news comes from one outlet: Newschannel 34, the ABC affiliate.  The PBS affiliate has no local news, only the PBS Newshour and other PBS network news analysis. 

This situation leaves the local CBS affiliate, WBNG, channel 12.  The local news is not always “local, but taken from “wire” stories on CNN and other news places. CBS Channel 12 had the best local news source in this area, back in the years when I was growing up.  Today, I would have to say this Grey Company local affiliate is not THE BEST, but it sure is better than Fox 40. 

What bothers me about local channel 12 is the fact it no longer accepts email. This is the device I have used to distribute what I write.  Why does channel 12 do this? Why does a news AND INFORMATION channel not read what I write any more? What the hell is going on? Here we are and I can say my likes and dislikes are pretty much on the same page as channel 12. But none of my writing is accepted there.  Don’t get me wrong. There is never 100% agreement with any humans or human organizations. But my judgment is that, unlike Fox, they don’t lie. They are not liars, liars pants on fire.

Yesterday, I was in an area in which a local Solid Gold radio broadcast (Equinox) was difficult to receive as we have a country music station interfering. So, in the car, we turned to another local radio station with music more acceptable to us, though it was NOT solid gold.  In this area, there are pockets where hills block one signal and from some valley comes another. Back in the days of my youth, with mostly AM broadcasts, that never happened here. Even when FM was introduced, it never happened. We received ALL Binghamton stations plus other smaller city stations. Today, we senior citizens are being relegated to purchasing, on a lower revenue stream in our family budget, Sirius XM. At one time, it was all FREE, FREE, FREE – supported by local advertisers.  But yesterday, in the car, when listening to this other station because we were FORCED to do so by rules emanating from the FCC which is controlled by big business when it should be a third party representing the DEMAND SIDE of the market or WE THE PEOPLE.  It is represented by those on the SUPPLY SIDE of the market. Period.  Money is used to validate this. BS on that because free broadcast once DID make money and could still make money, just not feed the already filled to the brim pockets of those with hedgefund investments like the guy Sixty Minutes reported on who now owns a multitude of newspapers and can buy a mansion in Miami when most of us have had to leave Florida because we cannot afford the housing there (along with factors of heat, humidity, and hurricanes with outrageous costs to put money into an insurance hole for hurricanes and never see it again).  But on this radio station we were FORCED to turn to, as a Cuban citizen might be forced when Castro put a block on many broadcasts from Miami, we listened to the news. At the end, we discovered we were FORCED to listen to Fox News. Fox News ended the broadcast with “all America loves Fox News.” Another lie because all America DOES NOT love Fox News. They say it to inspire groupthink from peer pressure and get Republicans elected. I call the Republicans “republicunts” and “repugnicans” because, due to Fox News, the Republicans have become perverted and are NOT like the Republicans I knew one time, associated with, and was a registered Republican. BTW. How much media is covering those of us who have found that “republicunts” and “repugnicans” have forced us to leave the party? Instead I hear crap about Democrats. 

Interestingly enough, the story on Fox News which we heard and which surprised us, was a condemnation of Joe Biden. It was absurd as this news report did not just report the news, as was the function under the Fairness Doctrine, but made a comment about how bad Biden was because he stood up to Big Oil.  In other words, he stood up to the Koch brothers, Texas slick oil men, and others.  Fox News did not say that, did they? They wish to force the Keystone Oil Pipeline and only do that by drawing a false picture of alternative fuels. Had we been more in line with alternative fuels, due to Fox News, we would not be stuck today with the a dilemma which mirrors the results of the 1973 oil embargo.  It was republicunts which put the axe on alternative fuels – for the sake of BIG OIL

This harks back to a Sixty Minutes report many years ago about the development of green technology and alternative fuels with the help of government “incubator” money for business in America.  The report was a great one in which we the people learned that America, perhaps being blocked by BIG OIL back in those days(?), did not have investors to buy up those companies because it required deep pocket-ed investors for the long term development of such alternatives.  Your report told about investors from China who were purchasing these “startups.”  And to Fox News people, they blame government dollars being thrown to China, while they never report on how much Big Oil was sabotaging Americans who may have wanted to invest, so as to hold the control in thic country. It is the basis for attacks against Democrats, while, as is always the case (and with gun safety and domestic terrorism), it is the Fox followers and their sabotage which are the root cause – with their evil love of money. 

With all of this explanation, I return to the issue of local news CBS affiliate, channel 12. Back in the days when television was first begun, I recall channel 12 being both CBS and ABC. The local NBC affiliate is now Fox40 and a new NBC affiliate was formed after that change happened.  Channel 12 was the only VHF affiliate at that time. It still really is the only “digital” VHF, except perhaps the local NBC affiliate run by ABC affiliate channel 34. Thus, in those early years, few people actually invested in a UHF antenna. I know my dad did not. It was stupid of the FCC to do that, especially when we compare to the city of Scranton where ALL the local affiliates have been UHF and VHF has not existed there. If there were smart people on the FCC back then, they would have handed all the VHF to bigger cities such as Syracuse, Rochester, and so forth. With the VHF affiliate in Binghamton and no one investing in UHF antennas, but purchasing huge VHF antennas to receive channel 12 of Binghamton and the Syracuse VHF stations, that station in Binghamton left the other network broadcasts in the dark as underdogs to channel 12. The news reporting on channels 40 and 34, quite frankly my dear, SUCKED.

When channel 12 was both CBS and ABC, we got to see, in the late 1950s when I was at pre-K age, Mickey Mouse Club. It was broadcast on ABC, so channel 12 picked it up.  (Ironic that ABC is now owned by Disney and the “mouse”).  Thus, my favoritism of CBS channel 12, which went to CBS only at the time channel 34 was created (WBJA) as an ABC affiliate (see the story about the history of channel 34: https://tvstations.fandom.com/wiki/WIVT ). 

Thus, with the sabotage of my stories conducted by Fox and the fact that a better news station (CBS 12 of Binghamton) rejects email, I have to protest this situation because good people are not coming together to solve this problem in America. This is not polarization. It is the news and information being taken over by one network when we have four networks. Fox operates in the same way as the communist party or Nazi party control of broadcasting in a dictatorship. 

I repeat. That is NOT polarization so bleeding heart liberals need to stop being so damn diplomatic about it all and calling it polarization.  I despised the Capitol 4th concert this past week (on PBS) because, once again, it tries to be nice and talk about a divided America. It is NOT divided. It is a nation with the stage being set for dictatorial control just like that of Hitler and Goebbels. We need to stop pussyfooting around with all this BS for bleeding heart diplomacy – as if that is going to fix the problem.  Given the evidence in history in other nations, THIS BLEEDING HEART DIPLOMACY WILL NOT FIX THE PROBLEM OF THIS NATION HEADING TOWARDS A DICTATORSHIP. IT WILL NOT. I have been correct in EVERYTHING I HAVE SAID AND WRITTEN SINCE THE ELECTION OF RONALD REAGAN IN 1980, so TO BE IGNORED NOW IS REALLY ASININE.  To not be able to write to the local CBS affiliate is asinine, too.  You people need to collect the information, not be concerned about how nice Fox or republicunts or repugnicans are treated.  Stop the BS of bleeding hearts.  Stop scoffing at people like me and ignoring what we are saying. 

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. People of America consider what German Niemoller said: 

“First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.’

This quote was one of many which inspired the creation of the Fairness Doctrine in late 1940s USA.  Cowards are the ones who realize I am correct and use what I write to the detriment of people of good will among the Democrats AND true Republicans (i.e., the Lincoln Project).  It is about time journalism and media reared its head loud and strong against such actions. 

Why does local CBS affiliate channel 12 NOT accept email? What the hell is this in forcing us to do? All to go to ONE monopolized platform called Facebook? Or forcing us to go to social media only?  Forcing us to listen to the lies of Fox and other outlets of hatred?  Listen to the DEMAND SIDE of a capitalist market which SHOULD exist with balance between supply and demand. I speak about such balance and keep in mind this is just as the checks and balances are SUPPOSED to exist in our government between executive, legislative, and judicial, but has been SABOTAGED by people like Trump, Giuliani, McConnell, Thomas, Kavanaugh, Barrett, Kevin McCarthy, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Gaetz, and many other sodomites who enjoy rape of women, but not homosexuality. 

For the DEMAND SIDE, I am speaking. Now pay attention to many of us who want checks and balances in government and economics, not a dictatorship of the SUPPLY-SIDERS.

Crying About Spilled Milk as Heard on the Street

😁😁😁What is heard on the street these days? People from the World War II generation with whom I worked in a corporation would often sit and have coffee, discussing “what is the street talk?” Often we came to have knowledge about what is going on in the world which surrounds us. Thinking about that, as i listen to people.

What we DID NOT hear on the street in those days was talk of people with snotty snobbish spoiled-brat attitudes. I hear that on the street quite regularly today. Is this the result of the raising of my generation by those who followed Dr. Spock? Was it caused by followers on Ayn Rand who promoted “the virtue of selfishness?” Is it caused by those invigorated by libertarian/anarchists who say “anything goes?” Is it caused by a portion of the media which appeals to snotty snobbish spoiled-brat people so as to get their testosterone and adrenaline flowing strong and just want it to be said what they like to hear and such snotty folks don’t want to learn? As a result of this, is this caused by peer pressure and groupthink among cliques of people who are being led by mafia-type wealthy ones? After all, the old fraternal organizations are being destroyed.

That word, “destroyed.” How many times have I heard Republicunt Repugnican leaders use that word? Destroy, as those on the street, like lemmings, follow the call of the evil spirit, thinking they will go off to heaven when they are being led off a cliff.

Heard “on the street.” An older man, probably an older one in my own generation, is talkinga about “how bad the world is.” OK. If I could, my reply would be, “what are you doing about it? Just sitting around bloviating about how bad it is? It is like a person crying over spilled milk and letting it dribble over the side and rot, rather than to clean it up. Where is the, “I am mad as hell and ain’t going to take it anymore.” Instead, too many people moan and cry and cry and moan – and think this will accomplish something.

Then, I hear this “on the street.” “Well, the Founding Fathers caused a problem because they owned slaves.” Oh? So, rather than taking the time to explain how much we have learned, over the centuries, about this situation, and moved to change it, what the hell is this person doing but dredging up old wounds and not thinking about what we can do, after LEARNING from that situation? What are the concepts for which we can learn from this? Defend the 2nd Amendment and pick up a weapon? Be hateful as possible towards those trying to make things right? Make false claims that this is a “christian nation” and there was no intent for separation of church and state and freedom to have our own beliefs? Ignoring the fact that most of the Founding Fathers may have attended Christian churches, but were actually Deists, free to maintain what ever belief they wished to maintain. No. I heard someone dredging up old wounds, ignoring how far the African-Americans in the USA have come and how far we need to go to progress even more. Someone crying in the sour milk, rather than helping to clean up the sour milk and pour fresh milk. That is what I heard and it is abominable, to say the least. Something I never heard spoken of when conversing with those of the World War II generation at coffee, many years ago in a corporation.

What is systemic racism?

The word, “systemic” defined with anatomy of the body: “affecting the body in general.” Blood circulation or vaccination against disease in the body of a human being. As for plants, “systemic pesticide” is good for the body of a plant because it is absorbed in the root system and circulated through the plant and is toxic to insects and fungus, but not to the plant. The COVID-19 vaccine can be described as a “systemic” reaction to, perhaps, create immunity and antibodies by “flowing” flowing through the body. A shot to counter toxic snake venom in the human body is a “systemic” reaction for the sake of the human body and to counter the affect of a toxin.

So, where does that lead us with regard to “systemic racism” in society? Rev. Tiffany Thomas said, “People are tired of marching. People are tired of hashtag protests. People want some systemic change.” Very ambiguous, with the word, “change,” because “change” means many different things to different people. Individualism predominates over societal change and sometimes to the detriment of different parts of society, as systemic granules are toxic to aphids or powdery mildew.

Systemic poverty permeates a portion of society, while greedy wealth individuals like Trump and the Republicunt Repugnicans hold many people hostage to this existence and tell lies to get others to follow them.

Systemic racism? According to good.is, systemic racism is defined in this way: “Systemic racism goes beyond individual beliefs and feelings about people of other races. It means that the systems on which a society functions—the economic system, the education system, the heathcare system, the criminal justice system, etc.—are both infused with and impacted by the racism within which they were created and maintained.”

As with the systemic granules used to repel insects with a toxin, the “toxic” part of racism is hidden within white racists who believe they are NOT racist, as they smile politely and nicely about the black race. Then there comes an older man who, on the street, can only find negative things to say about the Founding Fathers because he (or she) really and truly only thinks about how bad African-Americans have caused problems for our society, by the mere existence of the race. In this way, the person ignores all the advances which have been made to overcome slavery, racism, and bigotry, also ignoring the great things our Founding Fathers did to establish this nation and establish it with many freedoms, including the freedom to maintain our own religious beliefs and have a peaceful life and liberty, with the ability to seek happiness. Liberty and justice for all means we also acknowledge how well this nation has done, in spite of the imperfections which still exist. Putting down the Founding Fathers because they had slaves accomplishes what? Nothing but negativity towards the black race and does so with the peer pressure groupthink within the white community, like creating a toxin within a plant. Systemic.

Why do I mention this? Because the person on the street also mentions how “happy people in Scandinavian nations are. No quarrel with that assessment, as we are aware of the conclusions of surveys which establish Scandinavian nations like Denmark as having the “happiest people on earth.” The conclusion of this person is that they have socialism in the Scandinavian nations. Socialist democracies, not dictatorships. True, for sure. No argument there, either.

But once again, this goes back to the systemic racism part of America. Why, you ask me? Because there never was any slavery in the Scandinavian nations and not sure there is a number of colored folks there. So, thus, the nation works well with socialism in a white-oriented society. Bad. In other words, someone described Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Denmark as having “homogeneous populations.” Like homogenized milk, the cream and the milk are mixed together to provide a well-mixed beverage. There is nothing outside white mixed into a homogenized milk. After homogenization, we can add chocolate in the form of syrup or powder, but it never becomes homogenized in the white milk.

What the “man on the street” failed to recognize is that socialism in this nation is blocked by the white folks who don’t wish to add chocolate to the mix. He whimpered about why there are so many Americans who reject socialist democracy when there is proof it works. I just explained the reason, but no one is thinking about that.

And a black Clarence Thomas also wants to be segregated, so likely goes along with the white crowd and disdains things about socialism which tends to work with those “homogenized” together like an integrated society. Except for one difference in Scandinavia. They don’t have as many of the colored to homogenize or integrate. It can also be described by an example of a black African nation trying to “homogenize” white folks into the nation, without white folks pushing for apartheid and/or segregation.

Until the man on the street and the peer pressure / groupthink changes it’s freaking lousy attitude of hatred, individualism, and selfishness in America, we will continue to have problems. So, my question is to the “man on the street,” what are you going to do about this situation so as to SOLVE the problem by not relying on freaking lousy ideology (liberal or conservative) and freaking lousy animosities towards economic systems which actually might work.

And the person on the street fails to recognize that I can go out on a limb and say that Scandinavian nations reserve portions of society which need socialism for socialism. Other portions of society that need long-term capitalist ideas for investments and returns on investments and price structures based on supply and demand in capitalism. They are rational in their approach and do not have minimum wage laws at all because their top part of society acknowledges those who don’t have it all and need opportunities. Volvo is not a “nationalized” company owned by the government. Prices are based on capitalist competition, not destruction of competitors by fat pigs of monopoly. Whether monopolies or nationalized industries such as the ones in communist nations produce shoddy products and services at high prices. We already have such shoddy and high prices here and at the local level, with people who advertise their electrical business but don’t fulfill their promises and get the work done. Such people are just like those in a communist nation, not the type of socialist-capitalist-democracy nations in Scandinavia.

To freaking lousy Clarence Thomas and others. Go to hell. Because the Chinese communists do not have long-term capitalist investments of resources like pensions and Social Security. America does and the Republicunt Repugnicans want to destroy these parts of American society which separate us from being like communists. In the process, the Republicunt Repugnicans confuse people like the “people on the street,” make them paranoid as hell in crying over spilled milk, holds them hostage to the fantasies of Trump-Rick the Prick-McConnell-DeSatan fascist pigs. They pay members of the SCOTUS and in other areas to do their dirty work and make themselves look good.

Come on, Joe Biden, get tough with them and stop pussy-footing around, as chaos emerges by deliberate creation on the “street where I live” and we are not being led to a “cloud nine” or “several stories high,” with delight, but many people fantasize that we are or are crying about spilled milk. These are mostly stupid ones with guns or lack of intelligence or both, having no desire to learn and gain wisdom so as to accomplish something good for America’s future.

Reproductive Rights, HUMAN BEINGS (WE THE PEOPLE), and America

May 13 is a date which lives in my memory. On May 13, 1965, my mom gave birth to my little sister. But on May 13, 1965, a Thursday and not Friday the 13th, my mom had a stillbirth. She had gone full term – 9 months – carrying this baby and the baby was born already dead. At Johnson City, NY’s Wilson Memorial Hospital (now UHS), my mom had a stillbirth.

In later years, my mom mentioned that she felt the baby die in her womb a few days before, on Mother’s Day. My mom mentioned that the mortician in Newark Valley noted the baby had an enlarged head and several other defects. To my mom, she thought being stillborn saved the life of the only girl for whom she gave birth.

For me who believes in a resurrection, I believe that in some way, God brought my little sister to be with God and some day I may be able to meet her. That is my belief.

What I don’t like is the words of an anti-abortionist whose name shall remain nameless, who felt it was the fault of a god and turned to a religious cult which opposed abortions. This same person also faulted a god for the loss of about three or four fetus due to “spontaneous abortions.” These are better known as miscarriages.

I am opposed to abortions. I teach, not preach. I place the rights of human beings above those of a fetus because there is a resurrection, based on a man who walked the earth and his father sacrificed him for the human race. These idiots who insist on DICTATING to the rest of us do not even consider cradle to grave societal healthcare and follow the words of freaking lousy lawyers who block us from attaining cradle to grave healthcare by making money of their damn lawsuits which are many times made by freaks and liars.

Instead, I go by the words of a Crosby Stills Nash & Young song:

Teach your children well

Their father’s hell

Did slowly go by

And feed them on your dreams

The one they pick’s

The one you’ll know by

Then a change in lyrics:

Teach your parents well

Their children’s hell

Will slowly go by

And feed them on your dreams

The one they pick’s

The one you’ll know by

Don’t you ever ask them, “Why?”

If they told you, you would cry

So, just look at them and sigh

And know they love you

The song is not about a group of puritans dictating to society and destroying reproductive rights. It’s about the human race. I even mentioned this belief to a black man I knew who said he supported anti-abortion efforts for society. The reason? In order to expand the black race. I was blunt and told this man that it is not about a race and the color of the skin, but about the human race. Perhaps I need to tell this to a freaking man with pubic hairs on a soda can and named Clarence Thomas. Maybe this should be said to a white man who sits on the SCOTUS, even though there were allegations given by women about his disrespect for women while dating. I speak of Brett Kavanaugh.

What about some of the others who helped push us to this brink of dictatorship? For instance, female-groping Trump?

How about corrupt McConnell who never earned his money in a legitimate way? McConnell. A lawyer. A career lawyer who does the work of the mob from puritanical s**t of people. Puritanical. He became rich by doing the work of the puritanical s**t of America.

Read the drama, The Crucible. It demonstrates that the TRUE reason for witch trials in New England was because of money, not religion. Yet, everyone believes it is religion to be dictated to everyone. Our U.S. Constitution gives us religious freedom. These dolts and idiots who intend to destroy reproductive rights do so on the basis of THEIR religious beliefs. For the rest of us, the majority of Americans, these s**theads take away our religious freedom. In stories like The Crucible, we hear about attempts to confiscate property, like a bunch of Marxist Communists, especially when the property is water front property. In those years, waterways were the primary means of transportation.

With this being said, if one were to read a book from Cornell University Press, we find a TRUE report of the false execution of a member of the Cornell family in Rhode Island, due to lies about apparitions being admissible in the court. This event happened in colonial America (late 17th Century) before we wrote the U.S. Constitution after throwing off the British Crown. The property in which this man who was falsely executed would have inherited was purportedly (from the best I can figure out, based on some records of the past – and I COULD BE WRONG – so don’t go for being wrong, if I am, but for the point I am TRYING to make here) located on a waterway.

How do I get from reproductive rights to these descriptions? Because the Cornells came here from England in 1638. They are recorded as being members of St. Mary’s Church of England church (Episcopal in America). Their relatives are buried there and the records demonstrate the family being at this church, located in Saffron on Walden, County Essex, England. We still need more research on this, but circumstantial evidence says that 1638 was at a time when there were events on the horizon and certainly the family realized the polarization of a society in England. I speak about the later puritanical dictatorship of Cromwell taking over in England, beheading King Charles, and starting the English Civil War. In the late 1600s, when the puritanical rule ended in England, too many of them apparently ended up coming to New England. it caused great upheaval in the Cornell family by persecuting those who may NOT have been in accordance with the religious practices of puritanical crap.

The Cornells then fled to Rhode Island with Baptist Roger Williams and the one persecuted named Anne Hutchinson. In other words, people came here to America to escape persecution based on religious beliefs. Then, the puritans come here and began to persecute the others who came here to escape persecution themselves. If Clarence Thomas, Brett Kavanaugh, and others on SCOTUS had any brains to understand this type of America. I met add this area in the northeastern area of America was one of the first to shed this nation of enslavement of Africans. The slave ship or two which was confiscated in order to set people free. Other measures for the work of those who wished to end slavery.

In fact, a descendant of this Cornell family, Ezra Cornell, was purportedly an early member of the Republican Party of New York, due to his stand for the abolition of slavery. His son, Alonzo B. Cornell, was one of the first Republican governors of New York. Today, this political party has been commandeered by puritanical s**t who wish to dictate THEIR beliefs on society. These beliefs are ones of hatred for the human race, far from what Ezra Cornell and other members of the original Republicans represented. They protect one element, fetus in the womb, while never taking any interest in those outside the womb, except to impose hateful attitudes and denying cradle to grave healthcare, and not allowing “WE THE PEOPLE” to understand our children and others who have identified that they have a natural inclination towards romance and sex. To add to this last statement, “…the one they pick’s the one you’ll know by…” Ask me about the number of young people from McConnell’s Kentucky who were abandoned by their families, out of fear that “NURTURING” overrides “NATURE.” The kids then go live on the streets in Florida, due to parents who don’t know how to teach their children, but PREACH and DICTATE to their children. WE THE PEOPLE don’t want such idiots and dolts determining their ideas about a supposed “justice” and dictate it in any method they want to do, whether the bitch in the 17th Century and her apparitions and lying, to the bitch (and others) today who think there is a requirement impose THEIR rules on all of us and call it “justice.” Sure. Tarnish the opposition. It ends up more than just the tarnishing. It ends up achieving THEIR justice with execution and genocide, like a Putin in Russia, not like America. America was formed as a result of throwing off royalty and aristocratic SUPPLY SIDER dictatorship. It was the era of “enlightenment” in which enlightened thinkers spoke about using balance, both in politics and economics. Most importantly, America was formed with a quest for religious freedom. You support anti-reproductive rights or same-sex relationships, you are imposing a religious belief on all our society.

Amanpour & Company, May 4-5, 2022

Dear Amanpour & Company:

Where do I begin? In viewing this program tonight, I begin with some of the last words spoken by Ms. Amanpour:  “human rights.”  With the issue before the SCOTUS tonight, “human rights” is important. But the Democrat who wishes to challenge Kemp of Georgia has said this one other thing, which was not mentioned. We cannot have peace without justice. The SCOTUS is SUPPOSED to be about doing the job of JUSTICES in order to assure justice and domestic tranquility. The dolts who are sitting in the current day majority, appointed by men who DID NOT win the popular vote in presidential elections, are possibly making some lousy decisions which move America away from “human justice.”

Democracy can provide peace AND justice and do so far beyond the consideration of “human rights.” We should have learned this from the American Civil War and the subsequent lousy crap which happened when a Democrat won only one term for president and then came back for a second term and we overturned what Republican Reconstruction had done and ushered in Jim Crow. But too much stupidity and lack of reasoning demonstrates too many have not learned from history. The woman from Georgia is correct. The Human rights are part of this is important, but “peace without justice” is what is truly appropriate and that is not being said. I don’t know how I can get across what I am trying to say in all of this.  Ms. Amanpour is correct, but I still do not believe we are going far enough.

I have female friends who have sent me disparaging remarks about Ayn Rand and her “virtue of selfishness” ideals.  Ayn Rand came here from Russia where they have never learned what democracy and capitalism is TRULY about. But out of feeling sorry for her, people came to her side in all things. I had females who sent me information challenging this atheist from Russia who had such a profound influence on America with the ideas of “selfish” individualism.

At the same time, these females who have expressed disdain over Ayn Rand also express very deep support of the ideas for PRO CHOICE and the woman’s right to an abortion. That is the SAME THING AYN RAND SUPPORTED. The right of a woman to have an abortion.  Ayn Rand.  But we are still stuck on Ayn Rand and her principle of the “virtue of selfishness.” Gloria Steinem speaking last night plus the other woman on the opposite side of the picture BOTH represented the thoughts about individual selfishness. Some of my female friends might like Steinem, but how about considering this junk and vicious behavior in America – the POLARIZATION OF AMERICA – due to individualism and selfishness.  The issue is about human rights, but more importantly about HUMAN JUSTICE, as Stacey Abrams of Georgia has said. 

Theocracies, fascist autocracies like Hitler and Mussolini, communist regimes like Joseph Stalin, and now with Putin’s plutocracy all have one thing in common. Establish “peace” by means of execution of enemies, just like any Mafia of ANY culture would do (and I am not just singling out Italians, so let me make that very clear) and by means of genocide.  By putting sunder their opposition, they then can say “they establish peace.” The Confederate bastards of the 19th Century had the same motive. Murder all the black people and we can have peace. They carried it forward after Grover Cleveland and other Democrats of the late 1800s pushed this crap upon the American public, like “gerrymanderers” in Dixie are doing today.  Another lesson from history which is ignored. 

Those who spoke tonight, besides Chris Christie, spoke about many things, but ignored anything I am trying to say.  The best part this evening was listening, for a short time, to author, Margaret Atwood. It was too short of a time because she made some very good points about LEARNING FROM HISTORY.  But it was cut short and that was disappointing.

Related to Canadian author, Atwood, is something which I relate to all of this. It may have no relationship at all. But one thing is this. I am related to another Canadian author, now deceased.  His name was Hugh MacLennan.  My great-grandmother was Angeline MacLennan. She hailed from central Pennsylvania in a town called Orwigsburg (Schuylkill County).  Angie MacLennan married my great-grandfather who lived on the New Jersey side of the Philadelphia metropolitan area.  That was Rev. Joseph Smith Eldridge, a pastor in the Methodist Church for many years.

Rev. Joseph and Angeline “Angie” MacLennan, had a daughter they named Clara Permelia Eldridge. When Clara was barely four years of age, she lost her mother, Angie (MacLennan) Eldridge.  Why? Because in 1903, abortions were NOT ALLOWED. Angie died in childbirth, along with that child which was due to be born in 1903. This lack of abortion snuffed out the life of a mom. That mom was unable to celebrate Mother’s Day with her one child. She was not able to celebrate Mother’s Day with any other POSSIBLE children, had she been able to have an abortion.  It was a legitimate marriage and legitimate children.  But the complications snuffed out the life of a MacLennan woman, related to Canadian author, Hugh MacLennan.  And to think the stupidity of those on the current day SCOTUS might just leave the door open for states (in Dixie, particularly) to ban abortion of ANY KIND, even if the life of a mother is threatened or there has been rape involved. It is a move backward. It is interesting that Atwood, author of The Handmaid’s Tale, relates to what the theocracy in Cambridge, MA, once did to other Americans. More recent Cambridge, she explained, was used for her setting in the book, due to the legacy from the past in which puritanical folks treated other people with s**t (my word, not Atwood’s word).  But Atwood was cut short and we never heard more from her an that is sad.  For the example is about “peace without justice” which prevailed in 17th Century New England and things like the Salem Witch Trials and other modes of execution.

Ezra Cornell, founder (co-leader, whatever) of Cornell University, can trace his lineage back to 17th Century Rhode Island and the wrongful execution of his ancestor named Thomas Cornell, Jr, at the hands of such puritanical s**t.  Read all about it in a book published by the Cornell University Press and titled, Killed Strangely. It is about the murder of Thomas, Jr’s mother, Rebecca (Briggs) Cornell. Rebecca (Briggs) Cornell also happens to be my ancestor, too. 

Ezra Cornell was one of many founders of the REPUBLICAN PARTY in central New York, due to his standing up for the abolition of slavery in Dixie. 

What about Clara Eldridge? She married my grandfather, Floyd B. Schoonmaker, after completing her music degree at what is now Ithaca College, but was, at the time, called Ithaca Conservatory of Music. That was during the era of Jim Crow. In spite of that, Simon and Bertha (Palmer) Haley were students in Ithaca. Simon at Cornell University and Bertha at Ithaca Conservatory of Music, apparently graduating in the class of 1925 with Clara Eldridge. Clara.

My grandmother. Daughter of Angie MacLennan who lost her life due to childbirth.  My grandmother who, when we stayed with her on Saturday evenings, never allowed us to view Mannix or Mission:Impossible, and other violent programs. As she would say, “you are not watching any violence.”

My reply would sometimes be, “but Nana, your friend, Gertie, watches Gunsmoke.” She would say, “I don’t care what she does, these are the rules in my house.” No guns. No violence. Nana, too, was a Republican.  She would be absolutely appalled at the Republicans today like Trump, Ron DeSantis, Rick Scott, McConnell, and yes, even Chris Christie of the state where she lived a good portion of her life, New Jersey.  Her mother, Angie MacLennan died in New Jersey when Nana was only about four years of age.  She had a cousin who was tortured in a Confederate prison, too, in Dixie. She had been born only about 30 years after the end of the American Civil War. So when Nana visited her (half) sister in Florida, she came back disgusted with Florida being the place where “everyone is going to find the fountain of youth and they don’t find it there.”  She NEVER returned to Dixie for the rest of her life, dying in 1982.  Her mother, my great-grandmother, could have lived longer and given birth to more children, had the option for an abortion been present in 1903.  It is disgusting to think there are really lousy people in America who don’t want to solve our problems and move forward, but to go back to those days. If you don’t want to do that, then they likely would take the lives of those who don’t wish to go along – like a “theocracy.” Atwood used this word tonight. A theocracy is autocratic and dictatorial. Does not anyone think our Founding Fathers were so intelligent, they attempted to avoid having a “theocracy” in America with words about religious freedom, “domestic tranquility” and so forth, in the U.S. Constitution.

Any lawyers who don’t point this out to the SCOTUS should have their license revoked.  That is how strongly I feel about this.   

Anyone serving on the SCOTUS who does not think and consider STRONGLY aspects such as this (plus more) and perhaps they need to be executed, as Hitler did to his opposition. I say this to make a point, but I don’t advocate it. 

Beyond that, the media needs to be stronger with the ideas which I have expressed here. 

Thanks to Margaret Atwood. When I attempted to view the dramatization of her book, The Handmaid’s Tale, I was so shaken by it, I had the chills, and was not able to continue to watch it. I still get chills thinking bout it.  Just as with today’s polarization by idiots who believe they are Christians, I still get chills, whether it is from these idiots or what is described in the book.  Should I apologize for not being a “man” because I get chills from the book? OK. I am a human being. How about that? I am a human seeking human justice, human rights, human equality.  Liberty and justice for all. Don’t patronize me by twisting things to make it look like doing away with Roe v. Wade fits into this framework of human justice. Such people really do sicken me and make me want to vomit. 

Amazing. 70% of the population DOES NOT WANT THE DESTRUCTION OF ROE v. WADE? Where is this 70% when it comes to elections and the Democrats speak out against such destruction? Where are they?

“Silence like a cancer grows.”

Current Topic: SCOTUS & Roe v. Wade

Dear Amanpour & Company:

In response to your broadcast last night (3 May 2022) regarding the issue now before the SCOTUS, I feel compelled to comment. 

To those who don’t like long commentaries, then close your eyes, plug your ears, and don’t bother. But this issue about abortion is a complex one.

Ms. Amanpour, in your interview of the right wing fascist woman who advocates destroying Roe v. Wade, you are like much of the media: a kind person in interviewing her. If it were me to do the interview, I would have called the woman what she is: a fascist bitch with a lainbrained mind like too many other Americans who wish to impose their religious beliefs upon all Americans, using the Supreme Court, a body supposedly for “human justice,” to do so. 

On the other hand, I got no new information from your interview of Gloria Steinem. All it contained was a person defending women’s rights and never addressing what some men think about this topic. As a gay man, I have been a part of the human equality movements which advocate for ALL human rights, including those of women.  But there are other issues here, besides just women’s rights which deal with human justice and human rights. Liberty and justice for all. 

My background is in a religious denomination which is the same one as Barack Obama: the Congregational / United Church of Christ. Our church “missionary” buildings in Mississippi have ended up being fire-bombed on numerous occasions. Who did this? Likely the same ones who promote what is being used to challenge Roe v. Wade in the SCOTUS. Likely the same ones who march with David Duke (observed being done in 2000) in Biloxi, MS. The same denomination which had people killed in Charlottesville, VA, by members of the  KKK and Trump simply praising those doing the attacks against human beings who march in peace. 

As a male, I am disgusted by SCOTUS men like Thomas and Kavanaugh who reveal the really lousy side of males. Putting sex first. Even the possibilities that Kavanaugh was involved in date rape. How many other violent acts have been advocated by such men who sit in power seats of the SCOTUS? Why is it we have lousy males serving on the SCOTUS and we expect ONLY WOMEN to address the needs of human justice and human rights? All men are not BAD, as we may be stereotyped as being bad. 

My religious background taught me about the most important idea of religious beliefs which comes from the Gospels. If a person lives by the ideas of “do unto others as you would have done unto you….” OR… “love God and love your neighbor…”  The UCC taught me this.  From the UCC and my parents, I have maintained the ideas that we respect both pro-choice and pro-life ideas. Here we go again. Lining up one against the other and having a SCOTUS to embolden these dichotomies.  It is sickening to consider.

How can I be both pro-choice and pro-life? The main reason is that, with pro-choice, I support those who DON’T  want to obtain an abortion. In fact, my CHOICE is to help educate people about the entire overall perspective on this issue. My ideas are the same when it comes to evolution v. creationism; sexual identity education as a means of helping understand nature v. nurture (and other issues which can help embolden our people to stand STRONG AGAINST VIOLENCE and RAPE done by older men and women in roles of power).  When I express these ideas, I then become personified as being weird, right? 

Personally, I experienced ordeals of dealing with spontaneous abortions.  I can say that I conceived up to about seven children. Only three are alive today, due to spontaneous abortions of about three to four fetus.

I had to put up with people who polarized our family by thinking that “Jehovah would have not allowed such spontaneous abortions, so our GOD was wrong.” Oh, yeah? And those idiot lainbrains who carry guns, in the name of some god, and murder abortion doctors are so much smarter than GOD?  Oh, no. they claim to do this lousy stuff with guns, FOR GOD.  That is not my GOD and certainly I don’t always insist on using the name of Jehovah, either. 

These people who claim to be “Christians” are lousy human beings. Why? Because they embrace what Jesus Christ advocated to be AGAINST. “An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.” Christ spoke out against this with simple words in the Gospels: “do unto others as you would have them do unto you…” and the most important short phrase which covers the way we treat all human beings (and perhaps you wish to eliminate the beginning words about GOD): “love God; love your neighbor as yourself.”  Christ’s words go against the idiocy of “eye for eye…” His words DO NOT speak against the 10 Commandments, but if people follow Christ’s words, they will not live their lives against anything written in the 10 Commandments. 

But I know. Due to the idiocy of people like the fascist bitch interviewed on Amanpour & Company last night, I am not supposed to speak in public about God, Jesus, Holy Spirit, and present a truly loving GOD for whom we can say, “trust in the LORD and do not lean upon your own understanding” because your own understanding might be wrong and goes with the evil spirit.  Sorry, but what Gloria Steinem (with all due respect to her) said, while very pertinent and certainly understandable to be important aspects, the overall question is not being covered sufficiently. So we go away with the words of a fascist right wing bitch who talked and talked and never listened to what Ms. Amanpour was saying. Never listened, considered, and tried to THINK on what had been said. That pretty much sums up the polarization in America today. 

For my own personal experience, I have more to explain. My oldest one who owes her very existence in life to what I had to sacrifice, in the name of finances. I won’t go into the explanation of it. A wife who had nothing but spontaneous abortions up to the birth of my oldest child. No one appreciates what I did, but only give allegiance and honor to a “Jehovah” only.  Meanwhile, they help create a hell on earth, as puritanicals do because they get upset if there is someone having a good time… being able to seek “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” 

Then there are those unable to have children. My question. Why does GOD not intervene there, but intervenes with GUNS and fascist bitches (like the one on Amanpour & Company last night)? In this case, at huge expenses (no cradle to grave health coverage while speaking out with big mouths about abortions and proclaiming a divine right to knowing the best about what is called “pro-life,” as they hire stupid lainbrained lawyers to uphold their stupidity, a lack of humility to have an open mind in order to overcome IGNORANCE and LEARN.

In other words, human beings, not any god, have developed methods of fertility to overcome the plight of those who are unable to have children. But the cost of it is prohibitive for the “little people” who pay the taxes (i.e., what Leona Helmsley and Trump cronies like to think).  Americans have to put up with the s**t of people like the fascist bitch (not Steinem, but the other woman) talk to us about HER individualist ideas regarding abortions and pro-life. However, I am bothered by the fact that Steinem ALSO concentrated on “individualism.”  Since America’s love affair with the automobile, we have become a nation of individuals with no concern for our fellow human beings. DUI rarely, if ever, existed when we had horses and public transportation. William Mattar in his idiocy, talks about DUI. In other words, he loves it because he can make money off the fact that we are a society of individuals who negate trains and other public transit ways.  Rick the Prick of Florida negated what the VOTERS DECIDED IN FLORIDA FOR CREATING A FAST-SPEED TRAIN FROM ORLANDO TO MIAMI – RUINING INVESTMENTS BY SOME OF US FOR HOMES ALONG THE ROUTE AND THEN THE BASTARD RICK THE PRICK SAW TO IT THAT MONEY WAS PUT INTO EXPANDING I-95 AND CREATING TOLL BOOTHS IN MIAMI IN ORDER TO DO IT.  Does anyone take this seriously?  Therefore, I do speak out against Steinem talking just like the fascist bitch with regard to individualism. The SCOTUS should be taking this into account, as well as the FREEDOM TO WORSHIP (religion) AS DEFINED BY THE U.S. CONSTITUTION.

The fascist bitch proclaims that SHE is not advocating politics in the SCOTUS. She needs to THINK about that, as she implies only the OTHER SIDE is advocating politics. 

This bitch wants us all to WORSHIP where she worships and to PRAISE HER GOD, which, when used by gun-toting idiots who shoot abortion doctors (terrorists at abortion clinics) and fire-bombers (in Mississippi) and people with a love of a car used to mow down people who seek PEACE AND JUSTICE in Charlottesville, get praise and honor. To which I say, such people need to be hung, just as Timothy McVeigh was executed. They don’t deserve a place to speak in the Media, such as that fascist bitch spoke last night, while many others who can express what I am expressing here, are denied access to expressing our intelligence of reasoning, consideration, and THINKING. 

God does nothing to stop spontaneous abortions, human fertility problems, sea horses in which the male carries the babies, animals which perform homosexual acts. It is stupidity, not a god; which drives people like this terrorist-endorsing anti-abortionist bitch who claims a divine right to know what should be pushed down the throats of the population regarding pro-life. 

I have examples in my life of being pro-life. My investment in pro-life meant I placed an importance on giving up a musical instrument for which I majored on in my college degree.  I also attempted to teach my own kids that abortion is not a form of contraception and only should be considered as the last resort, when it comes to consideration of rape and the life of the woman, as was the case for my great-grandmother who died in 1903 in childbirth.  Had God or humans aborted the fetus, my great-grandmother could have lived on, in order to produce siblings to my grandmother.  Does any lawyer related to such incidents ever go before SCOTUS to plead this or other aspects of this question?  Would the members of the SCOTUS who dig in their heels on this topic even care about JUSTICE? Or do they wish to do as the fascist bitch on Amanpour & Company, plus Trump, McConnell and other bastard males wish? 

Screw the ideas of individualism as the means to accomplish this goal. The common ground between Steinem and the fascist bitch is individualism.  We need to challenge individualism, not act like a bunch of “nice people” trying to tolerate the “other side” of individualism. We have ended up with a war in Ukraine, due to this individualistic autocratic plutocracy, endorsed by lousy stinking manure-laden leaders in the Russian Orthodox Church, too.  America is America, not Russia. We should be separating ourselves from any manure-laden leaders with corruption, lies, and the endorsement of individualism.

I am also speaking about Americans like Russian atheist, Ayn Rand and her love for the “virtues of selfishness.”  Sure. Ayn Rand supported abortion and Roe v. Wade, due to her embracing of individualist selfishness.  At the same time, this bitch Ayn Rand spoke out against welfare and Medicare. But when she came down with cancer, she resorted, like a good hypocrite, to government assistance.  You don’t believe me? Check out some information about her (“Ayn Rand, Welfare Queen: Living High On Government Assistance?” plus more). 

Really. America needs to take an overall look at this issue. A politicized SCOTUS will not do it. So, President Biden needs to threaten to pack the court with more people who put HUMAN JUSTICE before fascist religious theories and politics. The media needs to STOP BEING KIND TO FASCIST THEOCRATS who believe they have a divine right to impose their rules upon all of us.  McConnell needs to be pulled from the U.S. Senate. Rick the Prick needs to be pulled from the U.S. Senate. The filibuster in the U.S. Senate needs to be destroyed  What I describe ARE THE REASONS WE HAVE THE SCOTUS WE HAVE.

Pack the U.S. Supreme Court for HUMAN JUSTICE, not Politics and Religious Puritanicals; Destroy the U.S. Senate Filibuster

It is time to pack the U.S. Supreme Court for the purposes of human justice for all, not just the puritanical fascists directed by the evil Trinity of DeSantis (DePutin), Rick Scott, Donald Trump (plus others). There is no peace until there is justice. Catering to those who believe they have a right, given them by [A] god, have not right to do that. They defend the use of guns to kill human beings and not protect them from cradle to grave, while attempting to protect those in the womb as being more important than the 18-years-olds we send to war. They think that the teaching of violence through the media, parents who embrace such measures, and young kids’ friends on the streets, is more important education than the peace, friendship, and cooperative attitudes taught with sexual identity. Please help to kill the Senate filibuster, too.

Stop the Wealthy Ones of America Who Think only the Little People Pay Taxes – PLUS MORE ISSUES

Dear Editors:

A documentary told us how a small wealthy nation did not have a regressive income tax. Instead, they use a value-added tax (VAT) and property taxes.  I was tarnished because I identified, incorrectly, the name of the nation and where it was located.  The point about of my writing was about how this nation did not HAVE as many “little people” as the USA does, so it prefers a VAT and property taxes.  In other words, this nation is unable to play around with tax deductions and tax credits because it would do them little good. So, this nation uses a VAT instead. Notice that the wealthy in the USA who don’t wish to pay ANY taxes because they have us “little people” in which they can shove taxes down our throats, while getting away with “murder” of not paying taxes at all, as they invest their money elsewhere, probably in this little nation with the VAT.

This needs to stop and a VAT here in the USA, replacing sales taxes AND income taxes, is an answer, because the tax is on anything the producer price index (PPI) addresses, not what the CONSUMER price index (CPI) and income of CONSUMERS (the “little people”) are forced to do, after the union busting of these wealthy people have increased the income gap between wealthy and the rest of us astronomically – more than 1000% increase for those controlling the corporations since the 1970s.  (See article in 23 April 2022 Business section of The [Scranton] Times-Tribune , “A widening wealth gap,” for more information about what I am saying).

as for criticism about having the wrong nation, it loses the impact about the point I am trying to make. Perhaps some might say I deserve it because I promote accuracy, truth, and lack of hatred in what the media puts out.  On the other side, I can say this.  With the destruction of librarian jobs in the media, as I viewed happening over the past 20 years or so, then the problem is not me, the librarian, but the lack of people checking for accuracy. Thus, I view a documentary and attempt to recall the name of the nation, and get immersed in the lack of librarians to check the facts about such a documentary.

For me, too, as a librarian, I find it more difficult to use a reference to video documentaries.  With newspapers and magazines, it is in print. Therefore, had I read this information in a print copy like a newspaper or magazine, I am able to go back and confirm what was printed. With this video documentary, I am not able to do this.  With technological advances, it is more difficult to do so with digital copies of newspapers, too. Google has become a lousy search engine which goes far from what information / library scientists at Syracuse University and Cornell University developed for natural language searching in the 1970s and 1980s.  Google is lousy and most search engines are lousy. Much easier to clip or copy a print copy of a periodical article. Go ahead. Shoot holes in what I say, based on a love of ME, ME, ME – and “it works for ME, ME, ME.” I have given examples with an overview, not just ME, ME, ME.  I have experience with digital searching and how lousy I have seen it become today, so it is not about only ME, ME, ME. But about Katzer and Salton of upstate New York and the development of such systems. 

The wealthy ones of America have embraced this digital shit, destroyed local control of media, destroyed the jobs of those who research accuracy, truth and lack of hatred. We end up with such wealthy folks going against the very things which developed this nation when my maternal 5th great-grandfather (and many other wealthy folks), during the time of the American Revolution, gave money to the Federal government when it had nothing, “…in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence [defense], promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.”

Meanwhile, the wealthy of America, with the goons of union-busting, the destruction of the once-sensitive leadership of corporations (i.e., George F. Johnson and Thomas J. Watson) have denied living wages to the “little people” of the USA and work to preserve this by supporting social dissonance with wedge issues and purchasing of votes when there are those who are not gay, black, Latino, Jew. Therefore these folks are ME, ME, ME oriented and don’t wish to support human equality and human justice with “liberty for all.”  In other words, these “little people” say, “I’m not gay, black, Latino, Jew, so why should I care?” Wedge issue and wealthy money behind it, in the Republican “Nationalist” group.  (Nationalist = Nazi). 

The next time you read that some part of what I say, having nothing to do with my main point, has an inaccuracy, THINK, THINK, THINK… about the overall point of what I write. Don’t shoot holes when the main point is important to consider.  THINK… about the destruction of librarian and library research jobs. You certainly would not consider removing jobs of number crunchers and lawyers, would you? The Nazis of Germany were given a slap of sarcasm by the song, “Money Makes the World Go Around” – written by a gay man.  The wealthy pigs of America take the song seriously, along with the “Nationalist” Nazis of America. 

These wealthy fat pigs won’t do the elimination of a regressive income tax in which they play games with deductions and credits, for the salvation of SOME groups of people.  They won’t eliminate such taxes, plus sales taxes on the CPI which require profit margins to be cut into by hiring number crunchers and lawyers. It’s okay to eliminate jobs of librarians and educators, but not the number crunchers and stupid law people with their personal injury lawsuits and workman’s’ comp lawsuits.  They don’t want to use a VAT because they believe in the Nazi view about “money making the world go around.”  

The Canadians do not have such abysmal things as frivolous lawsuits and workman’s comp crap with the fakes who push them. They pay one-quarter of the cost of healthcare than Americans pay in this “private” system tailored to the wealthy and the career lawyers and wealthy business people who sit in and control Congress with PACs and lobbyists, including those of the military-industrial complex which Dwight D. Eisenhower warned us about this complex being bad.  Lawyers and number crunchers stand strong while the people just complain about government and we “little people” not only pay the taxes, but also pay four times as much as Canadians for healthcare, while Canadians have increased the average longevity of human beings in Canada.  Only a person in France can be the oldest person in the world, at the age of 118. But not in America.  GODDAMN the fat pigs of America who lead us into the future with “little people” and others being “dashed on the stones” and no one to do something about this situation. 

My point about this discussed nation, whether island nation or peninsula, is that when there are no “little folk” around for the wealthy fat pigs to amass huge amounts of money and then invest in offshore accounts (island nations), while doing NOTHING for the people of America.

Andrew Carnegie, a person who provided money from his wealth, for libraries and education, said that the success of a society is not due to individuals, but due to the society. Wealthy man, Bill Gates, said that people would save money by using a library to read books, not to purchase books for their own individual library.  Yet, the “Nationalist” Republicans reduce educators and librarians by way of elimination of local coverage of newspapers and then claiming “no one reads newspapers,” with a hidden agenda to increase the use of digital technology – for the sake of wealthy ME, ME, ME folks who don’t give one damn about WE THE PEOPLE.  These wealthy fat pigs dictate to those companies which support social progression by acknowledging sexual identity (i.e., sexual identity is more than just about gay folks, but teaching young kids, whether male or female, to be more confident about themselves than to submit to a lousy freaking male teacher in upstate New York who had sex with young girls). These wealthy fat pigs don’t like local media reporters who report the unethical and corrupt behavior at the local level. So, they push to eliminate this aspect of the news, claiming, “no one reads newspapers so do it by digital.”  I have numerous examples in Florida in which corrupt and unethical behaviors were once uncovered at the local level.  It took local reporters AND librarians to do it. These freaking lousy wealthy ones have destroyed us in this field, while supporting lawyers and number crunchers, as if they are deity because, as the Nazis said, “money makes the world go around.”  Not true and we have many examples in history in which money DOES NOT make the world go around, but if it did, it was done for the good of WE THE PEOPLE, not the fat goons of union busters and corrupt, immoral, unethical individuals in society.  Scot Andrew Carnegie, Scot 18th-Century theologian/economist/philosopher, Adam Smith, and many others are examples. And any inaccuracies in media could be stopped with references on PRINT copies. But if it is said in a video or on digital technology, who the hell can find such inaccuracies to consider what was said?   Simplicity comes with the PRINT copies.

Trump Reduced the Amount to be Deducted on Income Taxes for Charitable Contributions; Freak Trump

Life is not better due to Trump. The Republicans have a committee in the Senate which is not called Republican Senate Campaign Committee.  Rick the Prick Scott of Florida chairs it. All of this comes down to “nationalists” and has as its model, the Nazis of Germany. 

Trump reduced the deductions for charitable contributions. George W. Bush had said this was a good thing because it allowed the American people to determine the groups to give to for social good and thus reduce what the government needs to spend. Thus, when a group in Florida (and others) began to raise money, due to charitable contributions spurred on by tax deductions, to give to school lunch programs, the idea was to follow the ways of George W. Bush because school lunch programs were funded by the Federal government and “nationalists” like Rick the Prick and DePutin HATED such funding, let alone any funding for Obamacare. So what do these people endorse? Getting rid of the deduction.

So, locally, when asked to contribute while at the cash register of a retail outlet, I made the statement that it would be very pleasant if I could deduct such an amount on my income taxes, but that Trump had reduced that ability to do so and claimed life was so much better, as a result.  Not. 

How did the clerk reply? Did the clerk even consider what I said and take the point about how things could have been better by continuing as Bush put in place? No. Me, me, me, me, me, me. The response was about “well I cannot give anyway.”  I wish she could and we could reduce the 4 times as much as Canadians pay, for healthcare, so she could. But no. This person was involved in healthcare and was only thinking about the instant gratification ONLY for her. She could have cared less about the money CROS Ministries with Publix in Florida helped out Floridians. NOPE. Just about her GODDAMN SELF AND THAT SELF ONLY.  Individualism inspired by the LOVE of the automobile and other things in America which make people STINK TO HIGH HEAVEN in their thinking ONLY ABOUT ME, ME, ME, ME, ME, ME – and instant gratification. Never thinking how we can improve things for ALL of us and she might just benefit. GODDAMN such people.

Really. I wish to GODDAMN such people because they are selfish snotty brats, as exemplified by those with guns in QAnon, MAGA, and other groups. GODDAMN THE NATIONALISTS in America, including Rick the Prick and others. DAMNATION TO THEM ALL.
