Thread: Fascism Livin in the USA
[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (33411) from Coon Rapids, MN 5 hours ago

Reality IS - is that the wealthy few could care less about reality & their lap dog Government is right there with em - and the reality is that they are busy laying down the path for it to take - is - that TPTB want to try the failed experiment of Peace promoted through the barrel of a gun, right here in the USA!

Note: no sane gun control = people get your AK conversion kit to go fully auto & don't forget to load up on ammo and high bullet capacity clips - the NRA & the Republicans are fully behind your right to own a machine gun - and that is why government is working (currently on a low key basis) to Militarize the Police - apparently government wants all you gun nutters to have an opportunity to try to defend yourself against an armed force = the police and national guard additional military as needed for the full satisfactory experience! Be sure to write your representatives to thank them for the opportunity!

all the pro slavery states of the confederacy need to be totally reconstructed. Until the racists, ethnocentrists and bigotry in general are eradicated democracy - rule of by and for the people - can not thrive.

Since the Supreme Court has declared money to be free speech, we're beginning to awaken to the reality: only those with the money can say anything that will be heard. My free speech is without effect because I can't afford to promote it. [Yeah! I might get lucky and it will go viral but what are the odds.] The abuse of intellectual property rights now takes away my freedom to see and hear anything in a relevant and timely way. I'm a freedom fighter, who will not accept the inevitability of plutocratic tyranny.

Disinformation in the USA it's not "JUST" a Russian thang https://t.co/42lvjR1Vue Just saying. (no am not a fan of any dummy who supported or still supports Drumpf) I am sick of all of this BS about Russia when No one mentions anything about how the DNC screwed Bernie to try to force sHillary Rotten Republican Clinton down our throats. Our democracy is FULL of disinformation - it's how any disinformation gets traction = fuck with the audience until they have no idea what is real.

Will be interesting to see how this affects the up-coming voting. How many more States need to be UN-Gerrymandered?

Another small step for mankind , take that f@&$$/ whining gerrymander democracy fucking GOP https://www.salon.com/2018/02/20/pennsylvanias-new-congressional-districts-are-gerrymander-free-and-republicans-are-angry/

new map for Pennsylvania's congressional districts produced by the state Supreme Court is nullifying Republican gerrymandering efforts. It's a fair map, and it's helping Democrats because it's not tilted to help the GOP. Needless to say, Republicans are angry. The redistricting map was drawn with the help of Stanford University law professor Nathaniel Persily, who has helped with the development of other maps used to determine House of Representatives districts elsewhere in the country, according to Politico. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court took it upon itself to impose new districts on the state after Gov. Tom Wolf, a Democrat, was unable to agree upon a new map with the state's Republican leaders, who control the legislature. The need to create a new map emerged after the State Supreme Court ruled last month that the previously gerrymandered map "clearly, plainly and palpably violates" the state's Constitution

Oprah is just a currently out-of-political-power oligarch. In Russia, an oligarch swings the government to censor social media. Orangutan is swinging around grasping at every branch. Between Orangutan and Oprah, I choose Orgasm.

The globalized helpline says, "Press '1' for English. Press '2' for Spanish... Press 'O' for Orgasm." Where's the 'O' button? Did Roastgonadsaur spit fire and burn it away so that no man can actually testify because they have all become eunuchs? How can we men play balls if there are no balls? Most sports are actually Sickman Freund's Jewish impotence contraptions for putting a ball into a hole ( golf ), a hoop ( basketball ), or a goal ( foolßball or dringenkwestie for the pro-state-enlarged ones 》ihr verliert das Spiel immer《; Dutch is explicitly descriptive of the subconscious origin ) to divert attention from the testes' monies.

Damn, there's only the squeezed-tightwad '0' button on the phone's keypad for '1' infinite loop: 010101010101... Is it a '1' or is it a '0', English or Hispanic? Or is it dithering? It's the bivector representing the imaginary unit ( 'i' for mathematicians and physicists but 'j' for electrical engineers { who are not egotists and just love to fry "the others" with amperage } and Python coders ) 'necessary' ( according to Josiah Willard Gibbs, father of vector calculus, who's the mother? Kyle's mom ) to 'transcend' the plane of reality in real 2-dimensional Euclidean space.

The strength of a nation lies not in the march of its army but in its mighty right. Army ants in every pot? Of course, going after the socialist-with-Chinese-characteristics "chicken in every pot." 《男人也是人,女人也是人 ,为什么人压人?Ami, Ami, Ami!

Be grateful for the crumbs you have. That was Oprah's mantra, really. I found that to be a fascinating article because it is so difficult to explain the subterfuge of her message and how it promotes the status quo of inequality and injustice.

From the article:

"Winfrey encouraged her audience to ignore mounting inequity, and instead to buy into the three most famous self-help truisms, promoted by her and many of her guests:

  1. "You create your own reality."

  2. "You can't change anything outside of yourself."

  3. "The only thing you can control is your response to it."

Basically, if you complain then you are not well-adjusted, not evolved, not enlightened. If you are those things then you accept and have peace and you "cope" with your problems be they economic tyranny or imprisonment or whatever.

Such a load of horse crap. I'm glad people are on to her. She's a modern day version of Edward Bernays.

''We Live in a Country That Has a Totally Corrupted Political System'' by Thom Hartmann:

I really like Thom Hartmann. I really do & we follow each other on Twitter but even as he writes excellent & insightful pieces like your link & the link above ... his attachment to the Democratic Party is what stops him going from well meaning progressive to an actual radical. Radical & Revolutionaries need to lead us into the Promised Land of All That We Can Be - individually & societally if our myriad problems are to be solved. That requires a rejection of a 'Duopoly = Democracy Delusion'' that too many people suffer from.

Private Bankers corrupt & control both sides and then occupy & own a demoCRAZY deMOCKERYcy! It doesn't have to be like this. True Democracy & PUBLICLY OWNED BANKS can liberate us all from The Tyranny of Double Entry Bookkeeping & Compound Interest! We can engineer & create, better systems.

''The world-wide 2008 financial crisis specifically engulfed the banks and the financial sector more generally. For the most part, governments bailed them out with vows of “never again”. Numerous enquiries followed proposals for reform implemented to a greater or lesser extent aimed at securing this desired outcome. While many have questioned their practical efficacy, the problems shifted but did not go away. This is because they are clearly systemic and call for much wider and more far-reaching approaches.

''Despite some increase in shareholder activity since 2008, particularly over the remuneration packages senior corporation executives award themselves, these are now showing evidence of diminishing. The position of shareholders has also been further weakened by the recourse to Electronically Traded Funds (ETFs) whereby large tranches of shares are traded in nanoseconds having been triggered algorithmically. ETF shareholders can have no role to play in corporate governance. This new situation has not been adequately addressed by any of the numerous corporate reviews of the past two decades.''

From your long but interesting link above.Thanx. Yves Smith's blog https://www.nakedcapitalism.com/ is very insightful which is of course why not many in US/UK have heard of it - as ANY critiques of The Late Stage Crapitalism that is Neoliberalism - is verboten by the MSM. We struggle on, knowing that a mass intellectual insurrection is needed IF Outright Fascism is to be avoided! Finally, fyi ...

80% of adults in USA did NOT vote for tRUMP but what your HRC's big ass kissing self can't compute, is that 80% of US adults did NOT vote for Hellary Rotten Clinton EITHER! U are still stuck in your Zero-Sum Game Binary - ffs frf!! Fixating on Dr.Jill Stein; the Russians and just about any other false reason, wants to ignore that of the 40% of US Adults Who Actually Voted in 2016 .. many millions went with the Devil The Did Not Know because - the Devil They Did Know .. was such a clearly venal, crooked bitch! Geddit? I doubt it but then again U have had your lips pressed to HRC's ample ass for quite some time now haven't U?

tRUMP is POTUS mainly because so many o'the U$A's 99% hated $hillary with a passion and so given a choice between a GOPlite, Janus faced Clinton & a DJT who, was speaking some of Bernie Sander's language, they went for his dishonest, greedy self! The DNC; DLC & HRC, are responsible for tRUMP!! When are U going to accept YOUR complicity in the selling out of US' 99% ... that has led to tRUMP?!!!

Thing is - people who voted Green aren't HRC voters. They voted for people, planet & peace over profit ie.the opposite of HRC & Trump! Dem elites sabotaged progressives so they could burn $1B losing to a con man. So do stop trying to shift blame to everyone but DNC, HRC, Corp.Dems and folk like yourself!

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, together with Everytown for Gun Safety, launched a campaign on Friday which it says will “empower voters to find out where candidates stand on gun safety

“Throw them out” will target members of Congress who are “beholden to the gun lobby”, Moms Demand Action said. They’ve set up five steps people can follow to pressure lawmakers, including how to get politicians on the record as committing to stricter gun control and a tool to encourage friends to vote.

Hmm, how did Russia know more than two weeks ago to warn its citizens against U.S. 'hunt' [perhaps for meddling in 2016 U.S. Presidential Election]?

Did we have collusion from the U.S.A. to tip off Russia before the U.S. Department of Justice's indictment of the Russian nationals has become public? Who's the mole [in the U.S.]?

If it was a "continued hunt," why did Russia issue the travel warning? What's special at that time?

I actually know that Trump is POTUS because shitheads like you wouldn't vote for Hillary, you have some difficulty with reality not understanding that a vote for Jill is a vote for Trump I don't have that problem, Trump is there because you supported him and helped to put him there now you want to pretend it's not your fault, but it is.

A system that works well for ten percent or less of the population isn't merely a failure. It's a disaster and a threat to the survival of even the parasites who operate the pyramid scam. Slavery will not end well for anyone.

See? That is a sane observation. So how many mentally ill do we have in positions of influence and power that are forwarding the insanity?

There are better ways to do things which would leave no1 on the street dying of starvation and lack of health care.
